We were honored last week to welcome back Peter A. McCullough, MD (click for bio), MPH, FACC, FACP, FAHA, FASN, FNKF, FCRSA to discuss current covid-19 topics. This blog is the first half of a review of points he made. I mentioned on air that Dr. McCullough is paying a heavy price for speaking the truth. Recently, the Dallas Morning News reported that Baylor Scott & White medical system is suing Dr. McCullough for one million dollars! They apparently want to silence him and are using the excuse that some interview hosts failed to mention that the doctor was no longer associated with Baylor after February 2021. Adding insult to injury, Texas A & M then abruptly stripped him of his professor status. We are very grateful that Dr. McCullough is willing to continue helping the public despite such enormous and unfair pressure.
If the scare tactics and bullying to get vaccinated seem coordinated among all major news outlets, that is because they ARE! According to the BBC, “The Trusted News Initiative (TNI) was set up last year to protect the public from “disinformation” and promote only the narrative that the vaccines are safe and effective…no matter what the research and statistics show. “Fact checkers” use only the facts that suit their purpose and routinely contradict and belittle any statements that run counter to the narrative.
Dr. McCullough says it is unusual and very concerning that the government has not been holding press briefings on vaccine safety and effectiveness. There have been 400,000 reports of vaccine harm and the CDC has acknowledged 11,000 deaths. A whistleblower lawsuit using information from The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, CMS, (a part of the Department of Health and Human Services, HHS) claims the number of deaths is more like 45,000. Read more. Even that larger number is still a small percentage of the vaccines given, but it is quite significant. In contrast, the swine flu vaccine was taken off the market after only 53 deaths. We need to know what kinds of problems the vaccine is causing. For example, are those cases of paralysis permanent?
What about effectiveness? Looking at the big picture, including here and other countries, 40%-50% of the people in hospitals with covid-19 have been fully vaccinated! That is not what the CDC has misleadingly chosen to report. A study in Israel shows that the Pfizer shot is now just 39 percent effective against preventing infection but still strong at preventing serious illness. A careful broad-based study in California revealed that something like 7 times more people have had covid-19 as previously thought. That should help reach herd immunity. Dr. McCullough and others report that those who have recovered from covid are immune even to variants; do not benefit from the vaccine; and under no circumstances should take it.
As we discussed previously, the push to spread panic used statistical hanky-panky to exaggerate the case numbers and death statistics. It would also have helped their goal that, according to the CDC, the typically used PCR test was not able to distinguish between covid and the flu.
Dr. McCullough is also not yet convinced that the Delta variant spreads faster. It was tested on cell cultures in the lab, but in real life, some countries, such as Israel, are not experiencing a faster spread compared to the original type. The increase may be due to widespread changes in behavior. The mortality rate has not gone up. It is less than 1% of those hospitalized. NYTimes charts.
Those who have recovered from covid are immune even to variants; do not benefit from the vaccine; and under no circumstances should take it.
Next week, I will cover the balance of the interview. Meanwhile it is very important to be aware that covid is treatable. Here are some useful links: Dr. McCullough’s journal article Multifaceted highly targeted sequential multidrug treatment of early ambulatory high-risk SARS-CoV-2 infection (COVID-19). Here is a printable guide to home-based medical treatment for the virus. Also, from the HBN Library, this reference which discusses natural and nutritional approaches that can be used in combination with medicines.
