Amid the panic of contracting and spreading the Coronavirus, it appeared like a blessing from above. Which begs the question: Why are the media and their talking-head Democrats dissing chloroquine? During the April 5 virus presser, President Donald Trump mentioned, again, that the drug routinely prescribed for patients with malaria could be the saving grace in the fight against the dreaded pandemic sweeping across America.
Trump reiterated, “It’s a powerful drug on malaria, and there are scientific works on this. Some strong signs. If it does work, it would be a shame if we didn’t do it early.”
But what does the media report? Random side effects, sensational drug-bashing headlines, and claims the president is pushing a dangerous experimental potion without the backing of other government agencies.
A clever play on words by the lowest rated cable news channel walked close to the line of false information with the headline: “Trump falsely claims FDA approval of the drugs.” In actuality, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorized the use of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine in experimental COVID-19 treatment. Of course, as any good cover-your-hiney government agency protocol demands, a disclaimer was added, “Chloroquine phosphate and hydroxychloroquine sulfate are not FDA-approved for treatment of COVID-19.”
But that is exactly why it was released by FDA Emergency Use Authorization — to pull the drugs from the national stockpile to help those afflicted to recover.
Twitter, the arbiter of all things touchy-feely, removed conservative Laura Ingraham’s tweet for being “misleading information policy under heightened-risk health claims.” It’s absolutely horrifying the facts she reported:
“Lenox Hill in New York among many hospitals already using hydroxychloroquine with very promising results. One patient was described as ‘Lazarus’ who was seriously ill from Covid-19, already released.”
And then there is this Democrat dingbat in Ohio flexing her state-office muscles and threatening the president over his promotion of said drugs. State Representative Tavia Galonski tweeted that she “can’t take it anymore” and has vowed to tattle to the International Criminal Court at The Hague that our nation’s leader is committing “crimes against humanity” for trying to save people. I. Can’t. Even.
The Miracle Cure or Aquarium Cleaner — That Is the Question
After the president first indicated during a virus briefing that chloroquine may be effective in the treatment of COVID-19, the panic caused by the drive-by and social media resulted in one Arizona couple consuming a drink laced with koi aquarium cleaner that posted chloroquine phosphate in the list of ingredients. This active Democrat duo who were Hillary donors, voters, and social justice activists didn’t demonstrate the common sense to not imbibe a disinfectant fish-floor solvent.
, dug a tad below the surface and uncovered the couple’s skeletons – no pun intended. The woman abhorred her husband, was charged with domestic assault, and had decided a divorce would be in her future. She’s not losing any sleep for giving her man a chloroquine cocktail.
Yet the national lunatic media painted them as loyal Trump supporters just doing what they were told. Had the incident not had fatal consequences, this kind of abuse by the loony left would have been laughable. No good pandemic goes unused. As Crowder pointed out: not vetting the story and reporting or reprinting it without verifying facts is simply journalistic malpractice. But that’s become commonplace.
One Los Angeles physician on the pandemic front lines, Dr. Anthony Cardillo, reports great success in his treatment of COVID-19 as recounted in a local network affiliate:
“Every patient I’ve prescribed it to has been very, very ill and within 8 to 12 hours, they were basically symptom-free. So clinically I am seeing a resolution.”
He’s prescribing the drug — not the aquarium cleaner — with great success, but his account and recovery rate don’t register with the national media. Why? Do they love the crashing of a vibrant economy? Do they hope to pin the thousands of American deaths on the president because their combined hatred runs that deep?
It’s time for the pandemic to end. Chloroquine may help and has been FDA approved and in use since 1944 in the treatment of malaria — and it also has been prescribed to treat rheumatoid arthritis and lupus with success. As the president has said, “It’s not going to hurt people. It can help them, but it’s not going to hurt them. That’s the beauty of it. You see? It can help them, but it’s not going to hurt them. What do you have to lose?”
I think America knows exactly what the stakes are as we watch our country defy the odds.
