OPINION: America's frontline doctors censored by Big Tech

At least a dozen medical doctors from all over America assembled in front of the Supreme Court July 27 to counter the only message going forward allowed to the American people with respect to the coronavirus. Many had already experienced the removal of their messages on Google, which owns 70% of most American media outside Fox News, including FaceBook and YouTube (Tucker Carlson Tonight, June 16, 2020).

Outside their covid expertise, they had one thing in common that made their contribution superior to those of Anthony Fauci (a vaccinologist), the CDC and WHO -- they are the actual physicians of those with covid-19. They also each had come independently to the conclusion that the 65-year-old drug hydroxychloroquine used so successfully in covid-1 previously, also worked extremely well with its cousin, covid-19: "it's 78% similar to the prior version, the covid-1. Not surprisingly, it works."

These frontline doctors were seasoned physicians in the trenches with the virus. All knew that consequences for speaking out would likely follow. All knew that what they had to share would be nuked by every media piping the approved media message -- be afraid, stay afraid. All knew that what they would tell the American public would be the opposite of what most Americans were getting on establishment networks, but all were committed to telling the truth. All probably also knew that if they did not speak out now, freedom of the press might be gone. If the medical profession could be silenced, all other interests challenging the left side of the political spectrum could never survive. Doctors are among the most revered and least political part of our society.

They reasoned that, with their combined story, they might get through the wall of censorship already in place. They were wrong! Google, Facebook, YouTube and Twitter de-platformed them within hours the same day but, fortunately, not before 17 million heard what they had to say. The establishment print press went after them immediately. Our media is so controlled, it was difficult to find any press, outside Fox News, that did not undermine everything they said. It remains that none of the journalists or fact-checkers in these countering pieces were themselves physicians. They know nothing in comparison.

Here are some of the messages Google, Facebook, YouTube and Twitter refused to allow Americans to hear. This is every bit as big a censoring as burning books in the Middle Ages.

Dr. Simone Gold spoke of two phases of the virus, early and late, both treatable with present drugs. But physicians are confronted with a generated "spiderweb of fear ... all around us and it's constricting us" and "draining the lifeblood of the American people," society and economy that "does not make sense." The virus is "treatable" now. "That's what we're here to tell you." "But we implore you to hear this because this message has been silenced." "There are many thousands of physicians who have been silenced from telling the American people ... that we can manage the virus." Why? Because "it's 78% similar to the prior version, the covid-1" successfully treated with hydroxychloroquine. "Not surprisingly, it works."

Dr. Bob Hamilton, a pediatrician from Santa Monica, Calif., practicing for 36 years, told reporters that kids are almost entirely asymptomatic and can go back to school now, implying without social distancing or masking.

"The mortality rates of children are about one-fifth of 1%." Kids are "not passing it on to their parents or not passing it on to their teachers."

He quoted a pediatric infectious disease specialist and epidemiologist from Scotland, Dr. Mark, who said, "There has not been one documented case of covid being transferred from a student to a teacher in the world, in the world."

Dr. Hamilton continued, "We need to act out of science," not out of a generated fear. A fear respecting opening up the schools is driven mostly by the wants of teachers' unions, not the needs of the kids.

Dr. Stella Emanuel, who works especially with compromised covid patients as old as 92 with serious medical conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure and asthma, told reporters, that "patients do not need to die." Not one of hers has and she has treated more than 350 back to health.

"I put them on hydroxychloroquine, zinc and Zithromax," she told reporters, and I've "not lost one." She also placed herself and staff on hydroxychloroquine as a prophylaxis as "we see patients, 10 to 15 patients every day ... we only wear surgical masks, none of us has gotten sick. It works." She added, "Nobody needs to die."

Implicit in this comment and voiced by other physicians is that most of those who died could have been spared if treated with hydroxychloroquine in phase one as a prophylactic, and in phase two with the other two drugs.

And why does hydroxychloroquine work so well? Dr. Cole explained, "It concentrates in the lungs 200 to 700 times higher" than the bloodstream. The invading virus heads for the lungs but is blocked by the drug chloroquine from getting in. That is why the drug is so effective as a prophylactic. Should it get in, it seeks to replicate. The addition of "Zinc will mess up the copy machine called RdRP."

Dr. Emanuel summed up why the frontline doctors were there.

"I came here to Washington, D.C., to tell America. Nobody needs to get sick. This virus has a cure. It is called hydroxychloroquine, zinc and Zithromax ... You don't need masks or shutdowns; there is a cure." She added, "It is time for the grassroots to wake up and say no, we're not going to take this any longer. We're not going to die." She said. "When people are dying, it's unethical."

We know how to treat this virus. We do it every day.
