Bill Whittle’s Video On “Black Lives Matter”
By Capt Joseph R. John, June 4, 2020: Op Ed # 491
Law Enforcement Officers, across the nation, are well aware and saddened by the tragic death of George Floyd by the actions of rogue Police Officers who did not follow the standard restraint procedures taught to all Police Officers. The peaceful demonstrations, in memory of George Floyd, have been highjacked by Black Lives Matter and Antifa, turning those demonstrations into violent riots, looting of businesses, and anarchy.
Black Lives Matter (BLM) is an international movement, it has 16 chapters in the US and Canada, and campaigns to call attention to violence against black people by Police Officers. BLM regularly protests police brutality and police shootings of black people, and degrades the moral character and respect for Police Officers.
When Obama was the occupant of the Oval Office, he held meetings in The White House with the leaders of Black Lives Matter (which can be viewed in the below-listed video with Bill Whittle, in meetings with Obama and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch).
Obama raised a large number of funds, in a short period of time, to fund Black Lives Matter with $130 million, in order to help BLM expand its activities and demonstrations throughout the nation, before the last presidential election, to provide funding for BLM to oppose the election of Donald Trump.
Since 2013, BLM has organized over 3000 protest demonstrations and has become a movement employing very violent tactics aimed at instilling fear in Police Officers, with the ultimate goal of defunding police forces. BLM was founded by three black women Alicia Garza age 39, who supports trans and gender non-conforming people of color, Patrisse Cullors age 36, who identifies herself as a queer activist, and Opal Tometi age 36, an Nigerian-American who was a community organizer.
“Ostensibly, the current protests are about the alleged epidemic of widespread and race-based police brutality against blacks and the lack of confidence, in the case of George Floyd, that justice will be done. The problem with those assertions is that they are false, and not supported by data. In recent years, police have killed an average of about 1,000 Americans per year. Of that number, half are white and one-quarter are black, with the race of remaining suspects of another race or unknown. Of the approximately 1,000 killed by police, less than 4% involve a white officer and an unarmed black man.”(Larry Elder)
The violent demonstrations across the nation are being organized and executed by a coalition of Antifa, Black Lives Matter, Leftists, Marxists, Progressives, Socialists, and The Communists Party USA. There are prepositioned caches of homemade weapons, bricks, water bottled filled with concrete, and baseball bats wrapped with barbed wire in 140 cities where riots are taking place. The well-coordinated riots are erupting in over 140 cities about the same time each evening, often in the poor black districts, and result in anarchy, terrorism, arson, and looting of one business after another, employing U-Haul rental trucks to haul away tons of the stolen goods.
US Post Offices, banks, grocery stores, small businesses, the possessions of homeless people living on the street, and police cars have been torched. Large businesses like Target, Macy’s, Coach, CVS, Arby’s, Footlocker, Liquor Stores, Auto Zone, etc. have been looted. Now military troops are required to guard the Lincoln Memorial, the WWII Memorial, and the Vietnam Memorial that have been defaced. Police Officers are under attack.
Rioters killed a black Police Officer in Oakland, and killed a black Police Sargent in Louisville. A Police Officer in Las Vegas was shot in the head, 4 black Police Officers were shot in Louisville, a Police Officer in NYC was beaten down to the ground, 30 Secret Service Agents and 50 Federal Park Rangers were hit in the head with bricks and concrete water bottles, two Police Officers were run down by a hit and run driver in NYC, two Police Officers were run down in Buffalo, three Police Officers were stabbed and shot in Brooklyn, etc. Molotov Cocktails are being thrown at Police Officers.
Former FBI Director James Comey stated that the BLM demonstrations are partly responsible for a national rise in crime, because Police Officers have held back from doing their normal duties on patrol, or have been afraid to leave their patrol cars to do proper and thorough policing.
Over the past years, Black Lives Matter has been supported by Obama, Hillary Clinton, Nazi Collaborator George Soros, the Ford Foundation, the WK Kellogg Foundation, the Tides Foundation, the California Endowment Fund, etc. They energized and motivated the black youth to demonstrate against Police Officers. BLM has falsely blamed Police Officers for targeting black youth for murder.
Since those demonstrations blaming Police Officers for intentionally killing black youth began, there have been over 40 ambush-style police assassination throughout the nation, including the assassinations of 5 Police Officers in Dallas (after a BLM demonstration), 3 Police Officers in Baton Rouge (after a BLM demonstration), 2 Police Officers in Houston, 1 Police Officer in Milwaukee, 2 Police Officers in New York City, 1 Police Officer in Kansas City, etc.
Chaziel Sunz who left the BLM, posted the video in this paragraph, warning Black Lives Matter activists, to wake up to the fact that George Soros has taken over the movement. “What I’m trying to get the black population to understand, and this is critical……is the movement has been compromised… BLM is no longer an actual black organization… If you have any kind of brain you know BLM is controlled by the Soros and Clinton family.” (Gateway Pundit Jim Hoft, November 2, 2017) https://youtu.be/TD3GjkikUyw >
American voters should watch the below listed short video by Bill Whittle, in order to learn that Nazi Collaborator George Soros, and the Ford Foundation, with the strong support of Obama, raised $130 million for the Black Lives Movement, in order to promote and expand Black Lives Matter demonstrations. Police Officers have never targeted black youth for killing; by watching the below listed video, you will understand who has been killing thousands of black youth each year.
When Hillary Clinton graduated from college she went to work for the Black Panthers, and since then she has never been supportive of law enforcement. Hillary Clinton has often called for the retraining of Police Officers, in order to get them to stop killing black youth. “In 2018, there were approximately 7,400 black homicide victims, more than half of the nation’s total number of homicides, out of a black population of 13% of blacks in the US. Of that number, the police killed a little over 200 blacks, and nearly all of them had a weapon or violently resisted arrest.” (Larry Elder)
Hillary never opposed BLM demonstrations with their threatening chants that are designed to instigate violence against Police Officers. At the Minnesota State Fair BLM activists chanted “Pigs in a blanket! Fry E’m like bacon!” In New York after 2 Police Officers were assassinated demonstrators chanted “No justice, no peace!” In Phoenix BLM demonstrators chanted to Police “We should shoot you!” In Chicago BLM demonstrators chanted “No Racist police!” There are many more chants threatening Police Officers.
Every time a black youth is killed in a confrontation with Police Officers, even when the black youth is armed with a gun, and is threatening a Police Officer, Hillary calls attention to what she terms another Police Officer shooting of a black youth, insinuating the Police Officer was solely responsible for killing the black youth who was innocent.
Recent studies not only find no “systemic” abuse of black suspects by the cops but if anything, cops are more hesitant, more reluctant, to use deadly force against a black suspect than against a white suspect. The Manhattan Institute’s Heather MacDonald writes: “Regarding threats to blacks from the police: A police officer is 18.5 times more likely to be killed by a black male than an unarmed black male is to be killed by a police officer.”(Larry Elder)
Black Lives Matter demonstrations throughout the nation, have contributed significantly to the ambush-style shootings of Police Officers. Those ambush-style shootings are planned and executed to blindside and kill unsuspecting Police Officers, have not only resulted in 40 assassinations of Police Officers, but have also resulted in the wounding of many other Police Officers.
If there is systemic, structural, or institutional police brutality in the nation, then why, for eight years, didn’t the left of center liberal media establishment ask the Obama administration to deal with the alleged “systemic” or “structural” or “institutional” police brutality against blacks while Obama was in office?

It was eerily quiet in New York City…
On Tuesday night, I didn’t hear a police siren for more than an hour. And unlike in pre-pandemic times, there were no cars honking in the distance. No ambulance wailing pierced the ambient street sounds.
There were some reports of looting down in Soho and a standoff with hundreds of protestors at the Manhattan Bridge, but in my area the scene was calm.
The change is especially welcome because this city is still reeling from the trauma the prior evening.
Monday night in Manhattan’s best-known area – central midtown from Herald Square up to Central Park – was a surrealist nightmare of lawlessness and disorder.
Law-abiding residents across the city remained in their homes, under curfew, hoping for the storm to pass.
I watched online in real-time as news organizations, citizen journalists, and activist live streamers showed footage and photos of the mobs’ rampage.
From my own building, I could hear hollering and yelling from the vandals. Despite what you may have been told by newscasters and the “social justice activists” they put on their pundit panels, the rioters on social media appear mostly gleeful. They must have been having a great time as they smashed into the Verizon store across the street from my home.
I’m not sure how much they were able to steal from the Victoria’s Secret, Rolex, and Ferragamo flagship stores on Fifth Avenue that they broke into a few blocks away from my apartment, but they were clearly singling out high-quality items for their looting spree. Up and down Fifth Avenue, they marauded largely unmolested by the police.
The sound of police cars rushing up and down avenues was almost constant. NYPD helicopters hovered overhead, assisting the 8,000 deployed members of the force to track down the roving mobs who were smashing their way across midtown.
It wasn’t nearly enough. The authorities blatantly failed to protect this city and its people. The fiasco has brought about calls from the president himself to deploy troops to NYC.
The next morning, after a hellish night for New York, I ventured out to see the damage.
It looked like a hurricane had ripped through the most high-end shopping district in the city. Glass covered the streets as store owners scrambled to put up plywood replacements for their shattered windows. Bottles of hard liquor, intentionally smashed on side streets when emptied, made it clear that the looters were having fun. The anarchist revolution may not be televised, but apparently it will be celebrated with Don Julio and Jim Beam.
It was a shameful sight.
Everyone on the streets was appalled by what happened. Hundreds, if not thousands, of rioters ransacked store after store on main thoroughfares. Macy’s, an iconic temple of middle-class consumerism, was pillaged while onlookers videotaped the melee. To say the results were an embarrassment for the mayor’s office – and all the way up to the governor’s office – would be a gross understatement. Both men are grotesque incompetents, and in a sane world, would immediately resign.
Are the riots in NYC done? Will they return with even greater ferocity or spread elsewhere?
Nobody can answer these questions yet. There are still protests – ostensibly about “combatting racism” – in dozens of cities across the country. It is these protests, which begin as legal exercises of free speech, that often devolve into what the media describes as “mostly peaceful” affairs… in which an element breaks off to cause mayhem and destruction.
For New York and the nation, it’s hard to feel like this isn’t a cruel joke.
We’ve been through the (it turns out, unnecessary and catastrophically wasteful) two-month COVID-19 lockdown. Tens of millions of Americans have lost their jobs. And the federal government has spent trillions of dollars in emergency funds. We are just now beginning to reopen in New York and get our lives back to something closer to normal… and then we have violent riots that threaten to further weaken our already wounded city.
If nothing else, this has been a wake-up call for many New Yorkers and residents of other large cities across America. Left-wing elected officials cannot protect you, don’t care about you or your property, and are more concerned with using the police to make sure you are “socially distancing” out on a park bench than deploying the full weight of law enforcement against looters and rioters who want to undermine our entire society.
The run on gun buying has already started. Will there also be a run on people leaving our urban centers? American cities have been able to endure a pandemic in 2020, but the risks of incompetence at the hands of liberal administrators and politicians may be just too much to bear.
Operation Nemesis 8.0
Retribution against the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)
By MG Paul Vallely (US Army, Ret.)
Chairman – Stand Up America US Foundation
May 30, 2020
“For nearly 40 years, the CCP has used globalization and economic incentives to bring other countries under the Communist Party’s influence. CCP infiltration beyond China’s borders runs deep in the political, economic, cultural, and educational spheres. Examples of PRC influence operations include the Confucius Institutes programs, the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), and telecom giant Huawei. By trapping people and governments within its system of economic interests, the CCP leads them to accommodate its atheist ideology, tolerate its tyrannical rule, and betray the divine.
Misfortune is certain to befall those countries and regions that increased their engagement with the CCP and endorsed it. The path of the CCP virus (also called Coronavirus) as it has spread around the world goes through the countries, cities, organizations, and even individuals that are closely related to the CCP…
The pandemic occurred because of the CCP, and the situation will change when people change their attitudes toward the CCP.”
– from Editorial “Wherever Ties to the Chinese Communist Party Are Close, the CCP Virus Follows“, The Epoch Times, April 26, 2020
Plan VII. How Did Harvard Fall into the CCP’s Hands?
Threats from Chinese Students Brainwashed by the CCP
Recently, the American government started to pay attention to Chinese students in America. On the afternoon of May 29, 2020, President Trump announced that the group from Chinese universities with military background is being investigated especially. Within hours, the Chinese embassy and consulates sent out notice to Chinese students in America that special flights had been arranged for the “qualified” students to fly back home at the beginning of June, e.g., one Shenzhen airline flight was arranged to leave Washington Dulles Airport on June 4th. The Chinese embassy and consulates also caution Chinese students leaving America to be careful with the content on their lap-top computers and UCBs, etc. because there is excessive check at the U.S Customs. A retreat has begun.
In an on-line discussion, one Chinese summed up the situation using an analogy: “The CCP leaders sent their children to the Kung Fu master so the children could conquer the top-tier skills; but on the other side, the CCP parents and children have plotted together to kill the master, how wicked is it?”
Currently, there are 360,000 Chinese students studying in universities and colleges in U.S. When accepting these students, the schools may not realize the hidden threats: almost all these students have been deeply brainwashed by the CCP. For the CCP, one goal of such training is to have students learn the skills to cope with the rising challenges the authoritarian regime is facing. Another goal is to better prepare the CCP to battle with America.
Ever since elementary school, the CCP has engrained its doctrines of “The Three Deep Loves: Love for CCP, Love for Motherland, Love for People” into each child’s mind. The concept of the communist party is woven into the concepts of nation and people. If a person is labeled as anti-CCP, naturally he or she is anti-China, thus becomes an enemy of all Chinese people. Growing up under CCP’s tyranny, the Chinese students cannot separate the CCP from the Chinese nation or Chinese people.
The CCP also indoctrinates students that “Science has no nationality, only the scientists do”, which legitimizes the intellectual property theft for the sake of the “patriotism”. Hence, even after graduating from American schools, some Chinese working for American companies or institutes may still consider intellectual property theft as a part of “legitimate patriotism”.
Over the years, Harvard has operated as a training camp for the CCP elites and their children to better prepare themselves for the inevitable US-China war someday. In the last four decades, nearly all-American educational institutions have been training Chinese students, but all have overlooked the pro-CCP sentiments in these students. To keep America safe and great, there must be a decontamination process for the Chinese Americans who are intoxicated by the CCP’s indoctrinations. The alarming threats from the Harvard-China connection presented here are only the tip of the iceberg.
Harvard President Infected with the CCP Virus
On March 24th, 2020, Harvard President Lawrence Bacow announced he and his wife were both infected with the CCP virus (also known as Coronavirus). On that same day, Harvard had 18 confirmed cases. Luckily, the Bacow couple recovered in April.
Later, Bacow described his case to Harvard Gazette, “I felt like I was 120 years old almost overnight.” He also described initially being caught off guard. “Well, we’d been very, very careful, and I was a little bit surprised, in truth, because Adele and I had not seen anyone except each other for close to 10 days before we started experiencing symptoms,” Bacow said. “We were completely isolated in the house.” In that interview, Bacow was rather perplexed, could not identify the cause attributing to his infection.
Almost exact one year ago, in March 2019, Bacow visited China during his first international trip after taking the post. Despite the growing tension between the two nations, Bacow visited Beijing and Shanghai, met with the CCP head Xi and gave a speech at Peking University, where he mentioned Harvard Global Institute as part of Harvard’s engagement with China. “Harvard-China connection highlighted by President Bacow’s visit”, reported Harvard Gazette.
“The pandemic has eyes”, said many Chinese sages. Several investigative reports by the Epoch Times provided some intriguing facts: it was the close CCP-Harvard connection that brought the viral infection to the Harvard President couple.
Harvard University represents the top elite educational institute in America. Unfortunately, this unique position also makes it a key victim of the CCP’s infiltration. In April 2020, an article titled “The End of the Harvard Century” appeared on a magazine on campus called Harvard Crimson. The publication shows that some at Harvard has begun to reflect on how the risky Harvard-China (CCP) cooperation in the last four decades has dragged Harvard downhill.
Opening the Door for the Bloody CCP Tyrant
In the 1980s, Jiang Zemin was just the mayor of Shanghai. In the spring of 1989, when pro-democracy students were holding large-scale protests at Tiananmen Square and across the country, Jiang hurried to Beijing and privately met with Deng Xiaoping, the CCP head then. Jiang warned Deng that such protests must be suppressed immediately using military force, or else the CCP would be in dire danger. Deng concurred.
Deng appointed Jiang to execute the massacre at Tiananmen Square on June 4th. Afterwards, Jiang received a fast-tracked lift to the crown of the CCP head. In the 90s, still in shock of the CCP brutality, not many Americans were keen on the CCP or Jiang.
This is when Harvard played a key role in opening the door for Jiang. In November 1997, Jiang Zemin visited the United States. After meeting Clinton, Jiang was given a big stage opportunity at Harvard by Ezra Vogel, Director of Fairbank Center for Chinese Studies. Words went around that Jiang wished to obtain an honorary doctorate degree from Harvard, while Vogel aimed at becoming the next American ambassador in China. Whether that was true, the two for certain synced up well for mutual needs.
Prior to Jiang’s arrival, a large group of pro-democracy activists gathered and formulated 12 questions for Jiang. They were anxiously waiting for tickets to the event. Vogel made a pre-registration and auto-drawing rule to block many pro-democracy activists, Tibetans, and Uyghurs. On the day of the Jiang’s talk, about 4,000+ protesters gathered and chanted outside the venue. Inside, after Jiang’s speech on “Enhancing Mutual Understanding, and Reinforcing Friendly Cooperation”, Vogel allowed three questions. For the last one, Vogel chose an old American lady, who seemed the least likely to be anti-CCP. The lady asked, since Jiang considered different opinion as noise and there was a lot of noise outside, how would Jiang handle such noise? After some rambling, Jiang raised both his voice and his hand, “I think my only way is to have my voice louder than theirs.” That concluded the tyrant’s answer to the “tough question”. Since then, the Chinese Communist Party’s connection with Harvard became closer and closer.
In 1998 and 2002, Jiang Zemin met with Harvard President Neil Rudeustine and Lawrence Summers in Beijing, respectively. Later, Jiang’s grandson Jiang Zhicheng (English name Alvin) was sent to Harvard. In 2010, at age of 24, after less than one year of employment at Goldman Sachs, Alvin established his own private equity firm–Boyu Capital. Jiang family was revealed to have accumulated at least $1 trillion in embezzled Chinese funds, and that Alvin has managed to launder half of it overseas.
Operating the Second CCP Party School?
Since 1998, under Jiang and senior officials of Harvard, Harvard Kennedy School has been training CCP officials in a special program tailored for the CCP. In 2001, Harvard Kennedy School, together with Beijing Tsinghua University and the CCP, jointly launched a “Chinese Public Management Advanced Training Program”. The website of Kennedy School describes its “China Program” as such:
“Our executive training and workshops focus on providing analytical tools and critical frameworks to Chinese policymakers, senior executives from state-owned and private industry, NGO leaders and others to work more effectively. These programs and partnerships are designed to improve governing capabilities in China and to further Chinese teaching and analysis of public administration and public policy.”
Having trained thousands of CCP political and military officials, Harvard has earned its title ” the second party school of the CCP”. It is reported that at least 200 faculty members at Harvard have worked on CCP-related projects.
Li Yuanchao, the former vice chairman of the CCP, attended such training program at Harvard in 2002. In October 2009, when Li visited the United States, one of his itineraries was to deliver a speech at Harvard. But there was a much bigger plan than just delivering a speech. Li’s real intent was to promote the CCP’s “Thousand Talents Plan.”
Hooked by “Thousand Talents Plan”
“Thousand Talents Plan” is a talent recruitment plan implemented by the CCP. To put it bluntly, it is to seduce experts and scholars overseas, especially Chinese American experts and scholars, to encourage them to steal overseas science and technology information and give them to the CCP. In fact, it is to target the Western high-tech and intellectual property.
According to a report from the US Senate in November 2019, the CCP has recruited more than 7,000 scientists and experts in the United States through its “Thousand Talents Plan”. These people illegally brought the science and technologies from the United States to China in exchange for funds or personal rewards.
On January 282020, Professor Charles M. Lieber, the head of the Harvard Chemistry Department, a popular candidate for the Nobel Prize in Chemistry was arrested by the FBI because of his involvement in the CCP’s “Thousand Talents Plan”. Lieber, who received funding from the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH), was hired by Wuhan University of Technology as its “strategic scientist”. Not only did Lieber receive a lucrative salary from the CCP, but he also obtained $ 1.74 million in funding from the CCP to establish a lab in Wuhan. On the same day when Lieber was arrested, another Harvard researcher, Zaosong Zheng, was sued by the United States. Zheng, a cancer researcher working at a research institute affiliated with Harvard, was suspected of stealing 21 bottles of cancer cell samples. Zheng admitted that he planned to publish research results in China under his own name after returning to China. However, he was arrested before boarding the plane home.
Trapped by the Mass Donation
It is reported that since 2012, the CCP has provided 87 American universities with approximately $680 million in the form of gifts or contracts. Among them, the donations to Harvard University alone amounted to more than $79 million, ranking the first among all universities. However, this number only accounts for those on the public records, many CCP donations were never publicly registered. The transaction records show that over the years, Harvard accepted donations from the Chinese communist regime, Huawei, Hanban (the CCP office that operates overseas Confucius Institutes) and ZTE Corporation.
Xiao Jianhua, a corrupt CCP businessman under investigation, donated $10 million to the “Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation” under Harvard Kennedy School in the name of China Poly Group Corporation–a company with deep military background. But Xiao’s donation does not show in any of Harvard’s public records. How could Harvard, after receiving such donations, maintain its integrity and independence?
Singing for the CCP
“The Belt and Road (also known as One Belt, One Road) and similar projects have demonstrated the CCP’s geopolitical ambitions. What is even more frightening is that the CCP is preparing for the final battle with the United States with dedication, determination, and nonstop effort.”
– from the book “How the Specter of Communism Is Ruling Our World”
In 2013, the CCP proposed the One-Belt-One-Road Initiative, an ambitious geopolitical plan to dominate the world through economic expansion. It is also a plan to further isolate America, preparing for CCP’s war against America. However, Harvard, an independent American educational institute, could not discern the plan’s dire danger to America. Instead, it quickly became one zesty supporter of the initiative. Research paper published by Harvard flaunted the program as “Defining China’s Grand Strategy and Future World Order”.
Huawei, CCP’s telecom giant with deep military background has made donations to Harvard, but the actual amount is unknown. In early 2018, Harvard Business School did a case study on “Huawei: How Can We Lead the Way?”, which was meant to provide strategies for Huawei to take market shares from Apple and Samsung, eventually dominate the world market.
While Meng Wanzhou, the CFO of Huawei is under house arrest in Canada, her dad Ren Zhengfei, the CEO of the company stated that Meng would unlikely be his successor. Instead, his younger daughter, Anna Yao, might be. In May 2020, the CCP media highly promoted Anna Yao as “the most beautiful elite’s daughter at Harvard”, “a top student at Harvard computer science”. Harvard remains the top choice for the children of CCP elites.
Early this year, the CCP’s cover-up and disinformation campaign on the CCP Virus outbreak has left the world in turmoil and distress. In May 2020, China Press, the CCP’s newspaper published an article quoting Lin Xihong, a Harvard scholar that “Wuhan experience is extremely meaningful, it allows the rest of countries not to start from zero (“http://www.uschinapress.com/2020/0507/1184561.shtml). She stated that Wuhan’s measures, including shelter-in-place, social distancing, field hospitals, wearing masks, testing, and tracing, etc. were all “effective” measures adopted worldwide.
“If there is one important point, that would be we in the world all need to be united.” said Lin. In particular, she praised many Chinese American organizations for sending a large number of personal protection equipment (PPE) to China at the beginning of pandemic outbreak.
The fact was between January and February 2020, the Chinese consulates called Chinese overseas to buy out all the PPE in the local markets and send them back home. Then these PPE were confiscated at the customs by the CCP. Later when the world was in pandemic, the rest of the countries found their PPEs in dire shortage. The CCP turned around and sold PPEs at much higher prices or used masks to exchange for what the CCP needs- “Mask Diplomacy”. Wonder why Lin did not comment on the worldwide mask shortage after the PPEs went to China?
To safeguard America, American scholars and intellectuals must be awakened to break away from the CCP. In addition, there must be a decontamination process for the Chinese, especially Chinese intellectuals who are poisoned by the CCP. Otherwise, when and if a war between the two nations takes place, these pro-CCP Chinese in America would become the biggest threat to the national security of America.

By Richard Moss, MD May 30, 2020
I took hydroxychloroquine for two years. A long time ago as a visiting cancer surgeon in Asia, in Thailand, Nepal, India, and Bangladesh. From 1987 to 1990. Malaria is rife there. I took it for prophylaxis, 400 milligrams once a week for two years. Never had any trouble. It was inexpensive and effective. I started it two weeks before and was supposed to continue it through my stay and four weeks after returning. But I stopped it after two years. I was worried about potential side effects of which there are many, as with all drugs right down to Tylenol and aspirin. These, however, are rare. At a certain point, I was prepared to take my chances with mosquitoes and plasmodium, and so I stopped.
Chloroquine, the precursor of HCQ, was invented by Bayer in 1934. Hydroxychloroquine was developed during World War II as a safer, synthetic alternative and approved for medical use in the U.S. in 1955. The World Health Organization considers it an essential medicine, among the safest and most effective medicines, a staple of any healthcare system. In 2017, US doctors prescribed it 5 million times, the 128th most commonly prescribed drug in the country. There have been hundreds of millions of prescriptions worldwide since its inception. It is one of the cheapest and best drugs in the world and has saved millions of lives. Doctors also prescribe it for Lupus and Rheumatoid arthritis patients who may consume it for their lifetimes with few or no ill effects.
Then something happened to this wonder drug. From savior of the multitudes, redeemer and benefactor of hundreds of millions, it transformed into something else: a purveyor of doom, despair, and unspeakable carnage. It began when President Trump discussed it as a possible treatment for COVID-19 on March 19, 2020. The gates of hell burst forth on May 18 when Trump casually announced that he was taking it, prescribed by his physician. Attacks on Trump and this otherwise harmless little molecule poured in. The heretofore respected, commonly used, and highly effective medicinal became a major threat to life, a nefarious and wicked chemical that could alter critical heart rhythms, resulting in sudden cataclysmic death for unsuspecting innocents. Trump, more than irresponsible, was evil incarnate for daring to even mention it. While at it, the salivating media trotted out the canard about Trump’s nonrecommendation for injecting Clorox and Lysol or drinking fish-tank cleaner to combat COVID. It was Charlottesville all over again.
Before a nation of non-cardiologists, the media agonized over, of all things, the prolongation of the now infamous “QT interval,” and the risk of sudden cardiac death. The FDA and NIH piled on, piously demanding randomized, controlled, double-blind studies before physicians prescribed HCQ. No one mentioned that the risk of cardiac arrest was far higher from watching the Superbowl. Nor did the media declare that HCQ and chloroquine have been used throughout the world for half a century, making them among the most widely prescribed drugs in history with not a single reported case of “arrhythmic death” according to the sainted WHO and the American College of Cardiology. Or that physicians in the field, on the frontlines, so to speak, based on empirical evidence, have found benefit in treating patients with a variety of agents including HCQ, Zinc, Azithromycin, Quercetin, Elderberry supplements, Vitamins D and C with few if any complications. Or that while such regimens may not cure, they may help and carry little or no risk.
And so, the world was aflame once again with a nonstory driven by the COVID media. The HCQ divide within the nation is only a continuation of innumerable divides that have surfaced since the pandemic began — and before. One will know the politics of an individual based on his position on any number of pandemic issues: lockdowns, sheltering in place, face masks, social distancing, “elective surgery,” and “essential businesses.” The closing of schools and colleges. Blue states and Red states. Governor Cuomo or Governor DeSantis. Nationwide injunctions or federalism. The WHO and Red China. Or, pre-pandemic, Brexit, open borders, DACA, and amnesty. CBD oil, turmeric, and legalizing marijuana. Russia Collusion, Trump’s taxes, the 25th amendment, Stormy Daniels, the Ukraine non-scandal, and impeachment. Or Obamagate. And now HCQ.
HCQ is only another bellwether. It represents the latest nonevent in a long string of fabricated media nonscandals. If a nation can be divided over HCQ it can be divided over anything. It shows neatly, as many of the other non-issues did, whether one embraces the U.S., our history, culture, and constitutional system, or rejects it. Whether one believes in Americanism or despises it. It is part of the ongoing civil war, thus far cold, but who knows? The passions today are no less jarring than they were in 1860. One would have thought that a man taking medicine prescribed by his physician, even a President, would be a private matter. But no. Not today.
We swim in an ocean of manufactured disinformation created by a radical COVID media, our fifth column. They inflame the nation one way or another based on political whims. The propaganda arm of the Left, they seek victory at all costs including dismantling the economy, culture, and our governing system. Is there a curative for the COVID media and their Democrat allies who would destroy a nation to destroy Trump? He is all that stands between us and them. Is there an antiviral for this, the communist virus that has infected the nation, metastasized throughout its corpus, and now threatens the republic?
