A modern day Noah in the form of a family physician…

Some people might remember Vladimir Zelenko MD as the otherwise obscure family physician who is a bit of an icon in his New York community and who was called upon to treat President Trump when he was infected with SARS-CoV-2. Many, of course, wished him ill and derided Dr Zelenko both for his “unproven” methods and because he was helping this particular president. However, all of his skills and treatments have  turned out to be incredibly prescient. A couple of weeks ago he held an unbelievable discussion with the rabbinical leaders in his Jewish community. This is required viewing to help those who are skeptical, fearful, and confused about what is going on right now in the world.  I will let him speak for himself.  If this plays poorly or keeps interrupting, go directly to the site here.

The breathtaking ignorance at the top…

I am an admirer of our military forces through and through. They are for the most part underpaid, underappreciated, and do often pay the ultimate price. A good example are the sacrifices from the last 20 years in Iraq and Afghanistan.  I have always placed a great deal of confidence in the chain of command all the way to the top. However, today my confidence has been shaken by an edict issued by our current Secretary of Defense mandating the application  of the coronavirus vaccine to individuals who have demonstrative natural immunity from previous infection. Although, I am sure that Mr. Austen has every confidence in his medical advisors, he has been terribly misinformed in this regard. It is so egregious, that I would submit that the Department of Defense may be at risk for thousands of lawsuits for individuals who are vaccinated in the face of documented previous CV19 infection and who experience significant/serious adverse reactions unnecessarily and possibly as a result of having adaptive or natural immunity from previous infections. »

The inconvenience of informed consent…

It is unfortunate that the majority of younger people — those born after say 1970 — who have been subjected to a near-absence of sound world history education in the public schools, cannot likely locate Germany on a world map, and most definitely have never heard of the Nurnberg Code nor why it was established.  These are very specific principles not only outlined for every human in the world going forward but embedded in the conscience of all who knew the details of the evils that had just befallen humankind.   How quickly we forget such trivialities. »

The PCR testing scam…

The standard for diagnosing COVID 19 in most people — screening, confirming an early illness, or even post mortem — has been the PCR or “polymerase chain reaction” test.  More definitively it is called the rtPCR or “real time” PCR and is based on the detection of DNA fragments that are shed from the COVID 19 virus.  Oftentimes — i.e., almost always — the test must be “amplified” for the DNA to be identified by the instruments used for that purpose.  This would be like a magnifying process similar to the modern sonar devices on fishing boats.  But the “gain” must be adjusted so that fish are indeed identified.  Too little gain, and nothing is seen.  Too much gain, and every piece of wood or seaweed looks like a muskie or a shark.  The adjustment is very important.

Where are the public health “leaders” re vitamin D?


It is such a mystery.  Not the structure or chemistry of this substance so essential to a healthy life and immune system, no, but rather the utter absence of discussion by anyone seeking to contribute to the public health from Dr Fauci on down to the various governors and their “expert” minions.  The literature is telling us loudly that for cents/day large populations could be made greatly more resilient to the vagaries of the SARS2 coronavirus.  Hospitalization risks would fall significantly, and I would argue that the benefits of doing so would far outweigh the scant benefits of the vaccination.  No one gets myocarditis, blood clots in the brain, or Guillain-Barre Syndrome from taking 25 IUs of vitamin D per pound of body weight per day.

Immunity to COVID: Vaccines vs Natural (acquired from infection)

There is a major battle brewing on the horizon between the Vaccine Believers and those who actually understand what the human immune system can do once recovered from an infection.  The former will attempt to force, shame, mandate, and even segregate those who are not vaccinated to the SARS-CoV-2 virus, aka, “COVID.”  Why?  The truth is buried in plain sight underneath the veil of political control and the natural human tendency to force the “be like us” collective mentality on everyone.  But a closer look at claims that the vaccine confers “superior immunity” reveals a level of “herd ignorance” that is simply astonishing.

The Delta Variant…

The New Fear making the rounds is the so-called “Delta Strain” of the SARS2 Coronavirus that has given new life to the fearmongering tactics of people like Minnesota’s favorite epidemiologist and the peerless Dr Fauci.  The former, of course, missed the modeling and projections of the damage that would be done by the virus more than a year ago by such a wide margin that he might be compared with Barney Fife at the shooting range.  Fauci, in the meantime wants MASKS ON! again.  The data would not seem to support such panic.  Iver Cummins does a great job telling it like it is…
