Meet the Tyrants Who Corrupted Your Doctor
Since the red dawn of COVID, both my patients and Substack readers have expressed dismay over how idiotic doctors seemed to have become. Here’s how it happened and who was involved.
In the last two years, previously respected medical professionals suddenly advocated (and even modeled) mask wearing, which has been known for over 100 years to accomplish nothing against viral transmission. We have also known, for at least a century, of bacterial incubation in warm, damp masks and resulting damage to lung health. When a surgeon is masked, their surgeries have correlated with more, not fewer, infections in surgical patients. Derangement in heart rate and blood pressure, cognition and alertness are widely seen, for centuries, to correlate with mask use. Yet your doctor’s office is one of the last bastions of strict and even fanatical masking.
Those dangers of mask use are nothing new to the COVID era; it is why masking is historically used in slavery, because of the unmistakable contribution to docile behavior from respiratory interference. Think of the “Settle down, everybody!” pleas of those who try to bring order to any potentially unruly group of people. A flight attendant confessed to me last year that she hoped and expected masking would be permanent for this reason. It makes the passengers “docile and obedient,” to use her words. The political implications and consequences of a docile population can be, and already have been, staggering.
The COVID era has further advanced our knowledge of mask-wearing hazards in this way: We learned that disposable masks deposit plastics, such as polypropylene and terephthalates, in roughly the same proportion as in masks, irreversibly into deep lung tissue.
Yet, despite the health hazards of mask-wearing, many doctors showed their allegiance to relentless all-day mask-wearing, and the larger COVID narrative quite early in the COVID era.
Then, even as their patients began to observe the dreaded effects of lowered oxygen to doctors’ brains, those doctors went a step farther, and advocated, and even took themselves, an experimental injection, of a type that had plenty of warning signs, and that had killed the test animals. Furthermore, although all previous attempts at vaccinating against coronaviruses had failed, and despite the history of all previous new vaccines used in the US having been deliberated for years before release to humans, many doctors actually submitted to this new technology, made by one of three highly suspect companies, irreversibly injected into themselves, and advocated the same for their patients. This was despite the fact that efficacy was not even tested in the much-lauded trials.
Were doctors actually trying to lose the respect of the public? Did they really think people were so stupid or forgetful as to not notice, or later remember, these antics and blunders?
It is possible that physicians are not the stupidest group on the planet. After all, we did have to pass lots of courses and lots of exams, in both basic and clinical sciences, in order to graduate from medical school, and to become licensed to practice medicine. Despite the extremely poor choices that countless doctors have made during the covid era, doctors are clever enough to observe which side of their bread is buttered. And that side, in the current century, and by doctors’ perception, is not yours.
Cash pay in medicine is a quaint relic, and few of us physicians still work that way. So the patients, for many large-institution physicians, are no longer in optimal position to have a seat at the table in their own healthcare. Overriding financial influences have shoved the patient away from that seat at the table. The wellbeing, interests and opinions of the patient get shoved to the sidelines, under imperious doctors’ orders, which have actually come from on high. When I say “on high,” that is commonly thought to comprise dictatorial hospital administrators, medical boards and insurance companies. But it goes further.
Decades ago, most American physicians were in private practice. So conning them with such a scammy bit of nonsense as all-day mask-wearing or injecting an untested vaccine with a bad history in developing countries, and in animal tests, would not have gone well. Even during tobacco’s heyday, many physicians were not bashful in their rejection of the practice of smoking, even as a small minority posed with their lit cigarettes for tobacco ads.
But now there are two important economic factors that have pushed your doctor into taking the very stances that will ultimately cost them the respect of most of their patients. Karl Marx wasn’t the first to observe this, but he was the most famous. One may dislike Marx for any number of reasons, but he sure got one thing right: The base determines the superstructure. Although economist Toby Rogers illustrates how this works much better, I’ll summarize how that applies.
Enormous windfalls of money came to US hospitals through the US Cares Act in early 2020, to basically finance the extravaganza theatrical production of a pandemic, when in fact, from an epidemiological viewpoint, we were dealing with a fairly typical annual flu season: 0.15% infection fatality rate for COVID, when all was said and done, but 0.17% for flu in 2006 to 2008. What was the purpose of the destructiveness toward our lives and livelihoods, our kids’ education, our respiratory pathways, our bodily autonomy, our small businesses, and ultimately our trust in medical and governmental leaders? It may be that the most sinister manifestations of the COVID era are only beginning to unfold.
So doctors are now employed by hospitals that received millions, even hundreds of millions, for adopting the most anti-Hippocratic treatments possible for COVID: over-pressurized ventilators blowing out healthy lung tissue, the death-row drugs midazolam and morphine given in multiple times the known deadly dose, in synergistic lethal combination, the kidney-killing drug Remdesivir, and the withholding of the obviously benign and even Nobel Prize-winning drug ivermectin.
But hospitals are now the doctors’ new bosses, so doctors’ new allegiance makes cents (and many dollars), at least for people who value their bank accounts more than their ethics. The most cynical among us think of the actuarial calculation that seniors and the disabled cost private insurance, Medicare and Social Security the most in payouts, while no longer contributing the premiums. Do we age into a “useless eaters” status by the most ruthless bean-counting? And the most evil and heavily propagandized targeting of COVID abuse was directed toward nursing homes and senior communities. Some even remember that the Nazis had targeted the elderly and disabled for death even before their full-on Holocaust against Jews.
And some of the cynics have had a bird’s eye view of the corruption of medicine.
Doctors’ new employers encourage speech that is consistent with their new main income source, and discourage alternative speech. Where you stand depends on where you sit. So you don’t hear a lot of protest from the obedient “good German” doctors, who just want to go along to get along. Rebellion appears scary and troublesome; towing the line feels more comfortable, as long as there aren’t too many casualties.
But there is an additional stranglehold on doctors beside their new institutional employers.
That is the nearly unknown Federation of State Medical Boards, which I discuss here, and which came to my attention via a recent lawsuit, by a doctor who is sticking to his principles. Dr. Paul Thomas, pediatrician, is suing the Oregon Medical Board for $35 million. The grounds: After Dr. Thomas published the health outcomes of vaccinated vs unvaccinated children, five days later, the Oregon Medical Board seized his license. Dr. Thomas has cited undisputed data in his criticism of the intense US vaccination schedule imposed on children, and the harms they’ve suffered as a result.
As a private entity, the Federation has zero legal or statutory authority to dictate anything to anyone, either conferred by the US Constitution, the Congress or any state legislature. Yet it has set itself up as the tribunal for judgment and “discipline” to use their unlawful word, against state medical boards that do not conform to the letter of the Federation’s desires, according to Article 12 of their bylaws. Then, in the confession below, one can see their pressure to threaten the licenses of doctors.
If there ever was a Rowling-esque “Ministry of Magic,” the bane of Harry Potter and his classmates, one would be hard-pressed to find a more imperious one than this self-appointed tribunal.
Any state medical boards that take orders from this lawbreaking band of censors should be prosecuted together with the Federation as collusion between government and private actors to violate the First Amendment. There should be a class action lawsuit by doctors against such violators of the US Constitution. I hope to see that happen, in order to take the most direct route to free medicine from the grip of such tyrants, and to – most importantly - free patients from the grip of medical tyranny, which was called by its precise name, fascism, at the Nuremberg Trials.
How ironic that this Federation is based in Texas. Just yesterday, the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against private social media platforms, such as Facebook and Twitter, violating free speech. From the ruling:
“The implications of the platforms’ argument are staggering. On the platforms’ view, email providers, mobile phone companies and banks could cancel the accounts of anyone who sends an email, makes a phone call, or spends money in support of a disfavored political party, candidate, or business. What’s worse, the platforms argue that a business can acquire a dominant market position by holding itself out as open to everyone as Twitter did in championing itself as “the free speech wing of the free speech party.” Then, having cemented itself as the monopolist of “the modern public square,” Twitter unapologetically argues that it could turn around and ban all pro-LGBT speech for no other reason that its employees want to pick on members of that community. . . . Today we reject the idea that corporations have a freewheeling First Amendment right to censor what people say. [Emphasis mine]
The sooner and more decisively the private sector is stopped from violating the free speech rights of the citizenry – including healthcare professionals’ rights to express their thoughts freely on medicine and other topics, without fear of retaliation – the sooner we can return to a system of medicine that actually places patient wellbeing, fully informed consent and best interests in first place, as highest priority. And the sooner medicine can return to its oath: First Do No Harm.
