America's Frontline Doctor's held an amazing "White Coat Summit" last week In WA D.C. to address the "massive disinformation campaign" surrounding the Chinese Coronavirus to which "American life has fallen casualty." The summit thoroughly exposed the political and media Covid fraud by educating and empowering Americans with practical information and real data to stop living in fear of Covid.
“If Americans continue to let so-called experts and media personalities make their decisions, the great American experiment of a Constitutional Republic with Representative Democracy, will cease." - America's Frontline Doctors
The two day summit was live-steamed over the internet to millions and the event received over 20 million views before YouTube, Google, Facebook and Twitter all got scared and censored it. Over the course of the event the doctors spoke about the huge success of Hydroxychloroquine and also answered questions about the WHO, origins of Chinese Coronavirus, herd immunity and explained how and why masks are not needed for healthy people. Video.
On Day 2 after the doctors websites, posts and videos were taken down, several of the doctors passionately spoke up reemphasizing that Hydroxychloroquine Works. Dr. Simone Gold, a Board Certified Emergency Physician and Attorney said: We won't be silenced, the first amendment is first for a reason. We will come back every day. There are thousands of us, the tide of evidence for Hydroxychloroquine being safe and the solution for Americans is a tsunami, nobody can stop it. Google can't stop it, YouTube can't stop it, we use it all over the world, it is over the counter. Americans need to demand access to Hydroxychloroquine, they can shrug off the spider web of fear, we can go back to being Americans. Video.
Thank you to the thousands of doctors around the country and around the world speaking out and exposing the Covid myths being perpetuated by big pharma, the liberal deep state and the main stream fake news media. OF NOTE: Last week Dr. Emmanuel exposed the fraud and fake science being reported saying, "When are you going to wake up, America, and realize that you are fearing the wrong thing! You do not need to fear Covid, you need to fear our political medical leaders who are complicit with murder. You don't need to wear a mask or close the schools, or be locked down." Video here.
Another one of the doctors was Dr. Dan Erickson who made world headlines during his April 22nd press conference with Dr. Artin Massihi. Last week Erickson said, "When you lock down a 21 trillion dollar economy it causes public heath issues, our suicide hotlines are up 600%, spousal abuse, different areas of alcoholism are all on the rise. These are public health problems from financial lockdowns. We can open the schools and open businesses." April video here.
The doctors represented are among a coalition of 600+ medical professionals who signed a letter emphasizing that Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) has been unnecessarily politicized as a treatment option for Covid-19. According to their medical experience, including research papers and hands-on treatment, a protocol of Hydroxychloroquine, zinc, and (basic antibiotic) Zithromax has successfully treated many thousands of patients without adverse effects.
The Seattle City Council is now proposing to abolish the Seattle Police Department and replace it with a "Civilian led Department of Community Safety & Violence Prevention." According to the Post Millennial, the proposal states: the council plans to “remove certain functions from the Seattle Police Department to and provide funding for a community-led process to inform the structure and function of a new department of community safety & violence prevention."
Democrat lawmakers are only allowing the city to be engulfed in more violence and anarchy. They’re moving to abolish the police. It’s not just defunding, it is dissolution. Their plan is for non-profit programs and “community-led activities” to replace policing. They have justified the draconian measure by saying the Seattle Police Department "[perpetuates] racism and violence" and upholds "white supremacy culture." You can expect Seattle to become the next Chicago with out of control lawlessness, rampant crime and much more gun violence with this policy.
Videos are still pouring out of Portland and Seattle where violent riots continue with little effort by the local elected officials to stop them. In Portland there now have been over 70 straight nights of violence. Wednesday evening anarchists descended upon the Portland Police Bureau’s East Precinct building, spray-painted over security cameras, broke inside, lit a fire using an accelerant and threw fireworks and other objects at officers.
Police said that a truck also attempted to run over officers, then the front doors of the precinct were barricaded before the fire was started with more than 20 officers and civilian employees inside.
In fact Leftists are also showing their contempt for America by burning Bibles and American flags outside the federal courthouse in Portland. The rioters have been attempting to destroy the federal courthouse on a nightly basis. But ever since federal law enforcement officers arrived to stop rioters from burning down the courthouse, the rioters have been starting smaller fires in order to burn other symbols of their derision.
What does burning the Bible and flag have to do with protesting against police brutality? It is clear that these protests and riots are an organized attempt to dismantle Western Civilization and upend centuries of tradition and freedom of religion.
OF NOTE: Last week Portland Anarchist Rioters severed a pig's head, put a police hat on it, placed the pig's head on top of an American flag and then lit it all on fire. It was also discovered that Portland police found an abandoned pig back in the early days of the riots. Police believe protesters planned to kill the animal and similarly use its body to make some sort of disgusting political message about hating cops.
What we’re now witnessing is not about racial justice or police brutality. It’s about a very dangerous Marxist Revolution. These are lawless anarchists in Democrat run cities and states trying to intimidate and destroy in order to remake American in their image. Short video on their stategy here.
Over the last three months crime is skyrocketing in our country thanks to the BLM and Antifa protests / looting / riots, etc. and the Democrats lack of response to enforce law and order. Murders are up by double digit percentages in 36 of the 50 largest cities in the U.S. In Portland OR where their city council disbanded their police gun violence unit July 1st, the city finished the month of July with the most homicides in over 30 years. In Minneapolis where the city council voted to disband the police, there has been a 36% murder increase over last year. And police in that city are saying for citizens to be prepared to give up their purses, wallets and cell phones to criminals, as a direct result of their Democrat councils' defund the police policies.
On Tuesday Senator Ted Cruz Chaired a Senate hearing about the role BLM, Antifa, and like-minded groups are playing in riots across the country, as radical left-wing groups are engaging in "organized terror attacks" specifically designed to tear down government institutions. "These violent riots are not spontaneous, nor are they mere coincidences. Instead, the evidence suggests they are organized terror attacks designed to instill fear and tear down the fundamental institutions of government. This hearing is designed to understand who is driving the violence, who is driving the assaults, who is driving the murders, and what their objective is,” Cruz said. At the end of the hearing Cruz noted: "None of the 7 Democrat Senators who were at the hearing would say anything negative about Antifa or denounce or apologize for some Democrats calling Police, Nazis, Stormtroopers or Gestapo." Video.
Journalist Andy Ngo who was brutally beaten by Antifa Thugs in Portland last year testified at the hearing, saying...
“Antifa has mastered the art of making its violence appear innocuous,” for example, projectiles that look like water balloons can be filled with chemicals, small slingshots can be used to project rocks, glass, ballbearings into police lines. Umbrellas can be fastened with discrete pocket knives. Powerful handheld lasers can cause serious damage to the eyes.”
California is now Releasing almost 18,000 Inmates back into society, Including Convicted Murderers -- because of Covid concerns. This is an increase of 70 percent from earlier release estimates.
The Associated Press reported on concerns from police, probation officers, and others involved in the re-entry of prisoners into society that (according to police) could include “dangerous criminals who should stay locked up.”
The AP spoke to the sister of the man Williams killed. “Why is an inmate’s rights more important than a victim’s?” Dena Love said to AP.
The earlier releases also are causing worry as some repeat offender masked criminals have again committed more crimes. Also probation officers and community organizations are forced to scramble to provide housing, transportation and other services for inmates.
The WA State Employment Security Department Nigerian nightmare numbers are now becoming clearer as there have been 87,000 bogus unemployment claims reported. This according to ESD Commissioner Suzi Levine who is also now saying $576 million in state and federal unemployment benefits have been paid out to the fraudsters. Besides negligence it is hard not to assume that the Covid helped facilitate this fiasco. LeVine also acknowledged that, as of July 25th, 30,152 workers who had their benefit payments suspended by the ESD were still waiting for the agency to resolve their claims. In some cases, workers had received only a few payments before the suspensions, and some have been waiting weeks or even months for ESD to resolve the claims.
On August 28th Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network (NAN) has scheduled a BLM March and Rally with an estimated 100,000 participants In WA D.C. Expect 1,000 buses, dozens of jumbo trons and a major media 'fake news' bias coverage as yet another massive protest takes place during a supposed global pandemic.
The event, officially titled the “Get Off Our Necks” Commitment March on Washington, already has 50,000 registrants, and many hotels nearby have already been sold out, according to NAN’s D.C. Bureau Chief Ebonie Riley. Info here.
PERHAPS THEIR SLOGAN SHOULD BE: "We're Protesting, No Social Distancing, the virus doesn't affect Essential Social Justice Protesters & Rioters!
Antifa Anarchist Militants showed up to Seattle Chief of Police Carmen Bests Snohomish County house over the weekend. Anarchists continues to doxx Seattle Police officers and stalk them at their homes. They even targeted a police officers wife and lit her business on fire. This is part of a nationwide coordinated effort.
Europe's Top Health Officials Say Masks Aren't Helpful in Beating COVID-19 The top medical experts in the world can’t decide if masks are helpful in reducing the spread of Covid or just make things worse. Denmark boasts one of the lowest Covid death rates in the world. As of August 4, the Danes have suffered 616 Covid deaths, according to figures from Johns Hopkins University.
That’s less than one-third of the number of Danes who die from pneumonia or influenza in a given year. YES, DANES ARE NOT wearing face masks, and local authorities aren’t even recommending them.
Danish health officials say, "There is little conclusive evidence that face masks are an effective way to limit the spread of respiratory viruses."
“All these countries recommending face masks haven’t made their decisions based on new studies,” said Henning Bundgaard, chief physician at Denmark’s Rigshospitale, according to Bloomberg News.
Dutch public health officials recently explained why they’re not recommending masks.
"From a medical point of view, there is no evidence of a medical effect of wearing face masks, so we decided not to impose a national obligation," said Medical Care Minister Tamara van Ark.
Others, echoing statements similar to the US Surgeon General from early March, who said "Masks could make individuals sicker and exacerbate the spread of the virus."
“Face masks in public places are not necessary, based on all the current evidence,” said Coen Berends, spokesman for the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment. “There is no benefit and there may even be negative impact.”
In Sweden, where COVID-19 deaths have slowed to a crawl, public health officials say they see “no point” in requiring individuals to wear masks.
“With numbers diminishing very quickly in Sweden, we see no point in wearing a face mask in Sweden, not even on public transport,” said Anders Tegnell, Sweden’s top infectious disease expert.
Denmark and Sweden goverment health officials are not alone. Despite a global stampede of mandated mask-wearing, data show that 80-90 percent of people in Finland and Holland say they “never” wear masks when they go out. More here.
Mask mandates are NOT LAW and imposing masks on healthy individuals is Unlawful Discrimination and violates the First Amendment of the US Constitution (Freedom of Religion and Speech) and also violates The Federal Civil Rights Act, Federal Law Title II Of The Civil Rights Act (Public Accommodations) 42 U.S.C. §2000a. Which says:
`(a)All persons shall be entitled to the full and equal enjoyment of the goods, services, facilities, privileges, advantages, and accommodations of any place of public accommodation, as defined in this section, without discrimination on the ground of race, color, religion, or national origin.
LETS BE CLEAR: YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO WEAR A MASK OR FACE COVERING IF YOU DO NOT FEEL COMFORTABLE FOR PERSONAL HEALTH REASONS. The mandate is also a violation of The Americas with Disabilities Act (ADA). The ADA is a 1990 Civil Rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in ALL areas of public life, including jobs, schools, transportation and ALL public and private places that are open to the general public.
Message to Governor Inslee: Places of business, both public and private, must comply with basic non-discrimination requirements that prohibit exclusion from people not wearing a mask based on their medical condition, disability or for religious belief. There are no exceptions. Making discriminatory policies against those that do not wear a mask or face covering violates the U.S Constitution, Federal Law and Civil Law.
It is wise to have a healthy respect for any disease or virus, Covid, Influenza, etc. but it should be a personal choice to wear a mask or face covering; if it makes you feel better, than by all means please do so. The same goes for a vaccine. It is your choice, not the governments to mandate what is to go inside your body. Governments responsibility is to Protect and Maintain Our Individual and God Given rights.
SCIENTISTS in the Netherlands have said face masks in public places are "not necessary" and might even have a "negative impact." The nation's top scientists have concluded there is no firm evidence to make people wear masks.
Coen Berends, spokesman for the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment, added: "Face masks in public places are not necessary, based on all the current evidence. There is no benefit and there may even be negative impact."
Holland's position is based on assessments by the Outbreak Management Team, a group of experts advising the government. It first ruled against masks in May and has re-evaluated the evidence several times, including again last week. More here.
On June 2nd The Association of American Physicians & Surgeons (AAPS) filed a lawsuit, AAPS v. FDA, against the Food and Drug Administration to end its arbitrary interference with the use of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), which President Trump and other world leaders have taken as a prophylaxis against COVID-19.
Two million doses of HCQ are being sent by the Trump Administration to Brazil to help medical workers there safeguard themselves against the spread of the virus. But at the same time the FDA continues to block Americans’ access to this medication.
HCQ has been approved as safe by the FDA for 65 years, and the CDC states on its website that “CDC has no limits on the use of hydroxychloroquine for the prevention of malaria.”
More than 150 million doses have been donated to the strategic national stockpile controlled by the federal government, but unjustified FDA restrictions limit its use to only hospitalized patients for whom a clinical study is unavailable. Hospitals are even returning HCQ to the stockpile because they are not able to use it effectively.
“It is shocking that medical workers in Brazil will have access to HCQ as a prophylaxis while Americans are blocked by the FDA from accessing the same medication for the same use,” observes AAPS Executive Director Jane Orient, M.D.
“There is no legal or factual basis for the FDA to limit use of HCQ,” states AAPS General Counsel Andrew Schlafly. “The FDA’s restrictions on HCQ for Americans are completely indefensible in court.” And last week AAPS filed a motion to expodite the proceedings here.
Many foreign nations, including China, India, South Korea, Costa Rica, United Arab Emirates, Iran and Turkey, use HCQ for early treatment and prevention of COVID-19, AAPS points out.
Harvey A. Risch, MD, PhD, is a professor of epidemiology at Yale School of Public Health who has authored over 300 peer-reviewed publications and currently holds senior positions on the editorial boards of several leading journals. He is saying "the key to defeating Covid-19 already exists, it is hydroxychloroquine, and we need to start using it." Seven new studies have demonstrated similar benefit to as his owns successful experience. Studies include: 400 high-risk patients treated by Dr. Vladimir Zelenko, with zero deaths; And four studies totaling almost 500 high-risk patients treated in nursing homes and clinics across the U.S., with no deaths.
OF NOTE: The countries that are allowing the wide use of hydroxychloroquine are the same counties that have the lowest Covid Case Fatality Rates.: Costa Rica, UAI, S. Korea, Israel, S. Africa, Chile, Turkey, India, Russia, Ukraine, Greece, Indonesia, Morocco, Malaysia, etc. And the counties that have placed restrictions or banned the use of hydroxychloroquine are the same countries with the highest Case Fatality Rates: US, Italy, France, Belgium, Netherlands, UK.
Chicago area leaders call for Illinois to Abolish History Classes -- Elected officials and teachers gathered in suburban Evanston Sunday to ask that the Illinois State Board of Education change the history curriculum at schools statewide, and temporarily halt instruction until an alternative is decided upon.
At the news conference, State Rep. LaShawn K. Ford said current history teachings lead to a racist society. Before the event Sunday, Rep. Ford's office distributed a news release "Rep. Ford Today in Evanston to Call for the Abolishment of History Classes in Illinois Schools," in which Ford asked the school districts to immediately remove history curriculum and books that "unfairly communicate" history "until a suitable alternative is developed."
DON"T FORGET we have I-1114 petitions in the SCRP office (Open 10 am - 2 pm Mon-Fri). If passed I-1114 would limit emergency proclamations issued by the governor to no longer than 14 days unless extended by a vote of the legislature. The legislature may not extend a proclamation through mere letters from leadership, but must vote. No individual extension may exceed 14 days. The Legislature may pass subsequent resolutions of extension, so that the whole of government must concur in the ongoing existence of an emergency proclamation. More info click here.
On Sunday, August 9th at Noon there will be a Rally at Seattle City Hall to stop the defunding of the Seattle Police Department. GREAT NEWS: With 150,000 signatures on the petition, the city council is panicking and has postponed the vote to defund the Seattle Police Department until Monday, August 10th. The safety and security of supporters is a top priority for Sunday's Rally and security will be very tight. Please share with friends and neighbors to help uphold law and order & sign petition: https://stopdefunding.com.
