A 30,000′ View

When the magnitude of deception becomes so grandiose, the truth is much more difficult to disguise.  The pandemonium of another COVID surge is among us and we’re struggling with the new “Delta” variant. Unvaccinated individuals are the vector for viral genomic instability. Natural immunity is no match for this virus; the only hope is universal inoculation of every human on Earth to eradicate the invisible enemy (even though it possesses a zoological reservoir).  It is incumbent upon our federal government to limit interstate travel of the unvaccinated, mandate vaccination for our workers and military, and strip as many liberties from its citizens until every American succumbs to the pressure of getting “vaxxed.” Under no circumstance should we question this approach or infringement upon our liberties; it is imperative to follow the CDC guidelines if we want to survive. In fact, if you do question it, you’ll be deemed a domestic terrorist (here).

Those that have been infected with COVID-19 often want to know if natural immunity will protect them.  The CDC tells us that vaccination is the ONLY way. It is important to understand that 100% global vaccination is impossible; there will be individuals, due to medical conditions or anaphylactic reactions, that will be unable to accept this vaccine.  Total vaccination coverage at a global scale won’t happen, so alternative treatments must be discovered.  Contrary to this idea, prior to existence of vaccines, we have plenty of evidence to suggest convalescent plasma (plasma from previous infected individuals) demonstrated great promise and was our treatment of choice for critically ill patients (here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, you get the point). Some studies have also suggested natural immunity provides protection against COVID-19 that can last for several months or longer (here, here, here, here, here, here, here, again, you get the point). What’s the difference between conspiracy and the truth?  About 6 to 12 months.  When we once were conspiracy theorists to believe that COVID-19 was a manufactured product of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, it turns out to be the most plausible explanation (here, page 3187, page 522, and page 1150). I also turn your attention to page 2286, “Subject: Coronavirus bioweapon production method.”

If our government is truly interested in slowing/stopping the spread of the virus, we need to look no further than our southern border.  The flood gates are wide open with seemingly no strategy to ameliorate the problem (U.S. Customs and Border Protection) and it continues to worsen each month.  Interestingly, many of these illegal crossings are eluding any sort of COVID testing and our government is not mandating vaccination to illegal immigrants (here, here, here, here). Consequently, we are depriving U.S. citizens of their God given rights to stop the spread, but illegal immigrants are savoring the freedoms that noble, taxpaying Americans once enjoyed. This is the most incomprehensible and illogical policy to defeat this pandemic, IF that is actually the intent. Strong border security seems important in order to combat the virus, or a detailed, thorough health screen prior to welcoming them in.  We have neither. This is not the first poor health policy that the federal government has endorsed.  In 1977, George McGovern released the Dietary Goals of the United States, without scientific consensus, reducing fat consumption from 40%-30% and focusing on saturated fat reduction to below 10%. As a result of this report, our health has suffered immensely.

My disparaging remarks and skepticism regarding mandatory vaccination has perturbed a few people. I should clarify that I’m not anti-vaccine, rather I’m pro medical choice. Informed consent is a necessary formality in medical practice to prevent inadvertent battery on an unwilling, innocent patient. It is not my position to tell a patient that they will receive surgery, against their will, because I think it is their best option. Patients have the ability to choose what they feel is best for them, not relinquish all decision-making to the “almighty” physician. This adversarial, “radical” approach to “science” may seem counterintuitive because of my educational background, but there are fundamental reasons for my stance. C.S. Lewis once said, “When the whole world is running towards a cliff, he who is running in the opposite direction appears to have lost his mind.” If we examine our declining health condition, despite advanced technology that should protect us against worsening disease, it begins to make more sense. The cost of diabetic care in America in 2017 was $327B ($327,000,000,000); this is up from $245B in 2012 (Diabetes Cost Statistics). The prevalence of type II diabetes in adults AND children is on the rise (National Diabetes Statistics Report, 2020 and Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus in Children). Obesity, hypertension, heart disease and hypercholesterolemia rates have commensurately followed the diabetes trend. Could it be our food supply (or is this too simple of a solution)? We consume more chemicals and processed food than any other time in history. Our bodies are not designed to metabolize the synthetic food that we continue to consume in such large quantities. Complex problems don’t always necessitate complex solutions.

An exercise that I have found quite interesting (and disturbing) is heading to Yahoo! Finance (here) and selecting a large company, at random, to see the largest stock holders.  As you will find out, our tech industry, food industry, banks, news outlets, pharmaceutical companies, oil industry, transportation, or any other industry I am forgetting, are owned primarily by three companies – Vanguard, BlackRock and State Street. This monopolization of our consumption of EVERYTHING should be concerning to everyone (except for the executives of these companies). It suggests that we have lived in an illusion of freedom, but are not actually free.  With the current size and control of our government, this illusion is becoming more clear.

There have been several occurrences that have led to the deterioration of contemporary medical system. Decreasing reimbursement of physicians by CMS and other private payers (here) have made it challenging to pay overhead and produce a decent wage to pay off student debt and other expenses. Hospital employment has become more attractive for a comfortable, stable income without concern for overhead costs (here and here).  Doctorate programs have been created for physical therapists, nurses, and pharmacists which has complicated patients’ perceptions of the term “doctor.”  Nurse practitioners and physician assistance have provided a larger role in our new, more complex system and administrators now use the all-inclusive term “providers,” that has ultimately diminished physicians’ contribution. The divergence in reimbursement trends, between private physicians and hospitals, continue to widen and I submit this is by design to provide more government control over the health care system.  If we study the lobbying funds of the American Medical Association, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, American Hospital Association and Pharmaceutical Research & Manufacturers of America, they have been top contributors for at least the last 23 years (Lobbying Contributions).

Government entities focus on regulating acute toxins, but do not regulate chronic toxins. There was once a time when we didn’t recognize the association between cigarette smoking and lung cancer, and it was not an easy problem to solve at the time. This correlation is now very well understood as the causal link. It should be understood that these vaccines have escaped normal scientific scrutiny and done with a technology that has never been used on human subjects before. The major argument in favor of the mRNA technology it that they have been studying its use for over 20 years; this is true, but success in bench research doesn’t always correlate with clinical success. Yogi Berra coined the phrase, “In theory there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice there is.” Vioxx was a popular non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication that provided profound relief for orthopedic patients with joint pain. After being FDA approved for market use in 1999, it was then discontinued in 2004 because of increased risk of myocardial infarction (heart attack). Here is a list of drugs that were FDA APPROVED and then removed from the market due to adverse side-effects, many were on the market for several decades before being removed (here). Understand that these drugs went through the rigorous FDA approval process and were still found to be dangerous later. In addition to the discontinued medications, there are numerous medications on the market with known significant risk profiles that are continually being used; Tylenol in high doses can cause liver toxicity and death; Ibuprofen, or other NSAIDs, can lead to gastric ulcers, acute kidney injury and bleeding; opioids can cause respiratory depression, dependence and death; anticoagulant medications can lead to hemorrhagic stroke, bleeding ulcers and death. Medications are not entirely benign; we often emphasize their positive effect while ignoring their potential negative consequences.

Dr. Robert Malone, the inventor of mRNA vaccines, has openly raised concerns about the COVID-19 vaccines (video, article). Kary Mullis, the inventor of PCR, also strongly dissuades PCR testing as a means for diagnosis of a virus (watch). Because PCR testing is the method we chose to identify the virus, it has greatly skewed our pre-test probability. The CDC has issued a laboratory alert suggesting no more use of RT-PCR testing because of its inability to differentiate between influenza and COVID-19 (here). This could likely explain a drop in nearly 38,000,000 influenza diagnoses in 2019 and only 1,822 in 2020 (here). I will remain unconvinced that lackadaisical masking and social distancing has selectively filtered out one aerosolized viral particle over another. We are in dangerous times, especially with the suppression of contradicting information. Censorship and invasion of privacy is being forced into normalcy with little resistance (here). Large companies and NGOs (non-elected individuals) are taking action against formerly free individuals and using fear as its canvas. Benjamin Franklin aptly said, “They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.” Our current political climate in America is frightening as a parent. This is not the condition I will tolerate or accept for my children. It is my duty to fight for them to maintain the liberties our country were founded upon. If we succumb to this tyranny, our great country will set the new bar for the Chinese Communist Party.

I am an orthopedic trauma surgeon that has become disillusioned by our traditional medical system as I do not believe it works well for the people it is designed to help. We have lost our vision and the cost of care for the product is unacceptable. This site has been designed to help elucidate problems in medicine and help direct a change for our patients!
