    Defund the FDA. They have killed hundreds of thousands with irrational rulings and interfered with generations of Americans' freedom to decide their own medical treatment.

      I quit designing medical equipment BECAUSE of the FDA. You had to get their approval in advance in order to sell any medical device, and they took months and months to even decide IF you got approval. And this was after you did all the work to design and build the produciton facilities and get ready to mass produce it.

        Sarcasm. You are obviously not a member of the club that has closed its membership to newcomers. Try selling your ideas or try to cut a deal with an existing member. To indulge in crony capitalism you have to be a crony.

            I hope you have more than 5 years, term2! I know what you mean, though, because I figure 15 or 20 left for me and I want what's left of free USA to hang in there until I assume room temperature.

              I am hoping for 4 years anyway of having trump stand in the way of collectivism (to a degree anyway). After that, I think all bets are off, as there isnt someone willing to take on collectivism to the degree Trump has.

    This isn't science, it's pure politics. The only "study" I've seen to date that indicates a cardiac problem was a VA study that administered massive overdoses beyond any previous recommendations and it was for CQ not HCQ. If I recall correctly, someone here in the Gulch put up the link to the VA study and I can't find it right now.

    My wife showed me this little quip on Facebook: "If 99.9% of C-19 victims recover without a vaccine, then why do we all need to submit to a vaccine?"

      I listened to almost the full Biden question-answer session of Thurs, 6/11. The answer of the Democrat Party (we know Biden doesn't originate policy) is to establish a 'Vaccine Czar' and everybody has to be tested before they can work at any job. More control.

      ...So people can make money. Get ready to roll up that sleeve, buddy. This one will be forced more than any other. The stock to buy is Moderna - in case you want in on the action.

      (bad humor there, sorry)

        I hope not, for sure, but there are some that are pressing for universal mandatory vaccinations. Here in the Peoples Republic of NY Cuomo signed legislation removing religious exemptions for vaccinations making it harder for anyone to refuse. This particular legislation was aimed at measles vaccinations, but extending it to anything else is just a matter of political ink on paper.

    They lie like a rug, I have seen at least 28+ studies, since 2005, that proved HC works...not to mention that the army prescribes 50K tablets a day...and another thing: Since when do they care about peoples lives or "Science" for that matter.

    HC helps prevent Cytokine Storm which to me, reads like an immune dysorder.
    HC reduces the viral load of the body, allowing the bodies immune antibodies to do their job.
    But, modern medicine (allopathic) does not want your body to do it's job...

      2nd para- not quite, as nothing available yet (to my knowledge) stops the cytokine storm. That is how studies are faked, give the patients HCQ when it will not work nor does anything else.
      Nor does HCQ stop the body from getting the virus, but, if given early enough. pref with zinc and AZ, it stops it.
      Modern medicine may not come up with a, safe and effective,vaccine, but has already given HCQ and there are some interesting approaches to fixing the cytokine storm in the works. By the way, this cytokine storm is an over-reaction of the immune system, in this situation it needs suppressing.

      There a a very good but long paper-

    This is because they want to push Moderna's vaccine. Same reason you aren't seeing the progress with antivirals. There are treatments. But, the big money will be made with the vax. So...as an Objectivist do you jump on board and buy the stock? That's the question. Is it ok to profit from something that Wesley Mouch is lobbying for? Maybe sell your Rearden Steel shares before the directive from the Science Institute gets published? Hmmm?

    I have no use for the FDA They now do more to interfere with medical progress than one can imagine. I am a veterinarian and there are drugs in Europe that are awesome that the FDA will not allow us to have because it is simply too expensive for the US based company to run through all the hoops. I also am not a fan of Big Pharma but there are medications that are life savers. If the FDA would GTF out of the way and let physicians diagnosis and treat and remove the barriers for drug companies to make new drugs we would be much better off. Use the Deep State is alive and well in the swamp. Too bad we can't convince Antifa to rethink their agenda and become Antides.

    Defund the FDA, the CDC, the CIA the DOJ, the FBI...

    How about we go after this DEEP corruption.

    The CDC is DESIGNED and PAID to protect Americans from incoming diseases... #FAIL

    Where were their standing orders to have people ready to know when/how to use masks?

    If they did their job proactively (as opposed to PROGRESSIVELY, check out some of their PROGRESSIVE articles), we would NEVER have had a shutdown!

    President Trump should countermand this immediately and fire those who did this. Clean out the swamp one person at a time if necessary, entire departments if possible!

    The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) has filed a lawsuit against the heads of the FDA, HHS and the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) over what they call “irrational interference” to limit the use of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) for treating COVID-19 patients.Jun 8, 2020.

    I'm tired. I just want to chalk a dollar sign on Pelosi's a** and find a Gulch where I can thrive, but giving up won't do it. I have to stay because this is all there is. Lucky Dagne. Thumbs down to the alphabet agencies. Meanwhile, I mostly live in my head, on paper and with canvas, working around and through the insanity around me. Good to know I'm not alone.

    All these alphabet agencies stick together, and seem to favor China. In this case, Fauci does not want it used, because he has a pal who has the next chosen remedy, and who knows what perks that might mean if he could get that as chosen treatment. Never forget most of these folks have money in that Chinese lab, millions, and nothing wold be better than a second drop of the virus to further one world gov. and make a few richer. It certainly is nto about what works for everyday taxpayers, whose taxes are indirectly funding the virus spread.

    Oh, and I want to add - in case you didn't know. If you get injured by this vaccine that they are going to force on you there is really no legal recourse. Two different federal laws (one in 1986 just before the CDC Childhood Vaccine Schedule went from a few vaccines to about 70, and The Patriot Act) don't allow manufacturers of vaccines to ever be sued for any damages. Good luck with that. Oh, you can file a complaint with a Federal Vaccine Injury Court. And, they've handed out billion$ now in sealed settlements while saying publicly that vaccines are totally safe. See how that works? Yeah...you see it, too.

    Oh, the profits... If you aren't familiar with the subject of moral hazard now is the time to learn. Before there was AIG and Big Auto the vaccine industry was the first "too big to fail".

    But don't worry. On this one topic - health - you can trust big government.

    ...I should write that book...

    "The removal of the “approval” actually lets more HCQ be used.
    The approval in fact only approved use once hospitalized and prevented other use. Now HCQ is back under simple off label use rules as before. Any medical doctor can now prescribe it as they see fit.”

    This view from-
    https://chiefio.wordpress.com/2020/06...

    From the quote you provided, second from last para, last sentence-
    Of note, FDA approved products may be prescribed by physicians for off-label uses if they determine it is appropriate for treating their patients, including during COVID.

      I think it also prevents use of the Strategic National Stockpile for COVID patients which probably means less supply, higher prices and more profits for big pharma.

        Now when I looked at that ref it struck me as quite negative, but on looking again at that sentence (allowing off-label) I think there is an explanation.
        -Words drop from Olympus, lower levels catch a meaning as serious and urgent, so a task force is rounded up to report, there are three members, two write the stuff and the third who knows even less that the other two compiles the material into a report.
        Not likely you may say? Have you worked for governments?
        What this means is that a court will decide.
