Most Logically It Came From a Lab (Birger Sørensen)

TMR n"The most logical explanation is that it comes from a laboratory", minerva (02 July 2020)

This is a translation of a Norwegian article that includes excerpts from an interview with Norwegian virologist Birger Sørensen, in which he expresses his professional opinion that it is very unlikely that SARS-CoV-2 emerged naturally. It is worth reading for some of the reasons for his judgements (explained in a non-technical way), and for an explanation of some the sociological factors that suppress uncomfortable opinions in the scientific press.

How a False HCQ Narrative Was Created (Meryl Nass MD)

TMR uMeryl Nass, MD, "How a false hydroxychloroquine narrative was created, and more", anthraxvaccine.blogspot.com (27 June 2020)

In my view, this is a very important posting by the epidemics and anthrax expert Dr. Meryl Nass. "In no special order" she presents "a list of what happened" in order to illustrate how the message about HCQ was shifted from safe and commonplace to "safe for its other uses, but dangerous when used for Covid-19". She asks: "Were these acts carefully orchestrated? You decide."

Former French Health Minister Blows Whistle on Lancet Study

TMR z"HCQ Lancet Study - Former France Health Minister Blows Whistle", Virglie Faber YouTube channel (31 May 2020)

This is an important testimony. What he says doesn't exactly come as a surprise, because I'm sure many of us suspect that Big Pharma is regularly distoring research, but it's important to have this kind of evidence if our suspicions are to be more solidly grounded.

On 23rd May, Philippe Douste-Blazy, MD—a former French Minister for Health and one-time Under-Secretary-General of the UN—was interviewed on the French BFM TV (allegedly France's "most-watched news channel").

HCQ Searching for Evidence (Myron Cohen, MD)

TMR rMyron S. Cohen, MD, "Hydroxychloroquine for the Prevention of Covid-19 — Searching for Evidence", The New England Journal of Medicine (03 June 2020)

No doubt there will be some people who think I'm being political about this—that I'm "pro-Trump", or "right wing", or "conservative", and therefore have some (hidden?) desire to champion the cause of hydroxychloroquine advocacy—but the simple fact is, I keep banging on about HCQ simply because I suspect it is not being fairly assessed by the scientific establishment, and I "smell a rat". And that bothers me.

Now Retracted! (The Lancet)

TMR o"Retraction: "Hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine with or without a macrolide for treatment of COVID-19: a multinational registry analysis" ", The Lancet (04 June 2020)

So now The Lancet is retracting the article! — Good — It seems to me that it should never have been accepted for publication in the first place, given the rapidity with which its shortcomings came to light. Again, good on all those concerned professionals who complained about it, and good on The Guardian for reporting on it.

Good News (It Seems) on WHO HCQ Trial

TMR i Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus: https://twitter.com/DrTedros/status/1268251230406672385 (03 June 2020)

Aha, so now (according to its Director-General Tedros) the WHO is going to resume its hydroxychloroquine study. There's no mention in Tedros' announcement of the dodgy study in The Lancet, but just that the "Solidarity Trial Data Safety & Monitoring Committee" has now had the chance to look at the data and has concluded that it can go ahead after all. Good. Well, let's hope that the study does go ahead and that it's fair and balanced. (I'm not holding my breath on that, as the expression goes, but at least this is a positive development.) Well done to all those professionals who kicked up a fuss about the piece in The Lancet; it looks like it had an effect.

TMR f Professor Joe Jarvis, "...the more implausible any of it seems...", threader.app (31 May 2020)

Professor Joe Jarvis—a UK NIHR Global Health Research Professor currently based in Botswana—shares his twitter thread in which he complains of data implausibility in the Lancet study based on his research experience in Africa.

"Based on my group’s research experience in southern Africa, even in settings with the most developed electronic medical records systems in sub-Saharan Africa such as South Africa or Botswana, this kind of data cannot be obtained."—Jarvis

A Study Out of Thin Air (James M Todaro, MD)

TMR t James M Todaro, MD, "A Study Out of Thin Air", medicineuncensored.com (29 May 2020)

James M. Todaro (MD Columbia) takes a preliminary look at the mysterious company Surgisphere, the controversial data firm behind the infamous Lancet study that recently poured cold water on HCQ and CQ as treatments for Covid-19. (It was that study in The Lancet that prompted—or gave the excuse?—for the WHO to put on hold its Solidarity Trial of HCQ as a treatment for Covid-19.)

"Misinformation is bad. Misinformation in medicine is worse. Misinformation from a prestigious medical journal is the worst."—Todaro

An Open Letter to Mehra et al & The Lancet (Dr James Watson)

TMR c "An open letter to Mehra et al and The Lancet", via Zenodo.org

This is a very important development. In response to the recent study in The Lancet—which prompted the WHO to pause its Solidarity Trial of HCQ as a treatment for Covid-19—there has now appeared an open letter to the authors of the study and The Lancet's editor-in-chief, Richard Horton. In the letter, signed by a large number of "clinicians, medical researchers, statisticians, and ethicists from across the world", Dr. James Watson (Senior Scientist at the Mahidol Oxford Tropical Medicine Research Unit in Thailand) picks through The Lancet study and reports an array of "methodological and data integrity concerns" that demand explanations. The letter also calls for transparency from Surgisphere, the company that crunched the data for the Lancet study, and from The Lancet itself in terms of the peer-review process that led to its publication.

Please share this information.

Lab Escape Theory Gains Scientific Support (GMWatch)

TMR z "Lab escape theory of SARS-CoV-2 origin gaining scientific support", GMWatch.org (28 May 2020)

I was hoping to be able to reproduce this article here at TMR, but GMWatch didn't respond to my request. Oh well, no hard feelings. I nevertheless urge you to read it.

Contrary to the mantra in the MSM, that real scientists are convinced the virus has an entirely natural origin, this informative article paints a different picture, one of significant and growing dissent from that view by equally real scientists.

TMR g The United Nations New World Order, "https://unnwo.org/".

Isn't it funny? Occasionally—though very rarely, I have to admit—I have been accused of being crazy for using the term "New World Order" in the subtitle to this website. Apparently, it must mean that I think "the Illuminati", or "the Jews", or "the Freemasons", or "the Jesuits", or "the Reptilians", or perhaps all of them together (!) are secretly running the world.

Yale Epidemiologist Urges Early HCQ + AZ Therapy (COVEXIT)

On the same day that Anthony Fauci confidently said of HCQ that "the scientific data is really quite evident now about the lack of efficacy for it", the American Journal of Epidemiology accepted a manuscript by the Yale Professor of Epidemiology Harvey Risch, MD PhD, entitled "Early Outpatient Treatment of Symptomatic, High-Risk Covid-19 Patients that Should be Ramped-Up Immediately as Key to the Pandemic Crisis" in which he urges the use of "HCQ+AZ and HCQ+doxycycline, preferably with zinc" for "high-risk Covid-19 outpatients."

Following the infamous Lancet study "Hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine with or without a macrolide for treatment of COVID-19: a multinational registry analysis"—which recently prompted the World "Health" Organisation to "pause" its Solidarity Trial of HCQ as a treatment for Covid-19The Guardian reports that Australian researchers are now disputing the reliability of the Lancet study: "Questions raised over hydroxychloroquine study which caused WHO to halt trials for Covid-19".

Yarndling Hits the Urban Dictionary !

YarndlingScrimmers "Yarndling", The Urban Dictionary (Please be aware that The Urban Dictionary contains material that may offend.)

It is with great pleasure that TMR announces the inclusion of the term "yarndling" in The Urban Dictionary, the well-known online dictionary. For anyone unfamiliar with the term, or the craft (art/sport) to which it refers, I can do no better than to point you to the very informative interview we had a few years back with the yarndling historian Campbell Adams. (In the picture we see yarndling scrimmers, two wooden devices traditionally held in bifurcated chorns during the priming of tarifolds.)

Global CQ/HCQ Study - No Zinc? (COPCOV)

TMR t "Chloroquine/ Hydroxychloroquine Prevention of Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) in the Healthcare Setting (COPCOV)", ClinicalTrials.gov (2020)

Please forgive me if I've missed something here, but I've looked through the protocol for this much-touted global study on the effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine (and chloroquine) as possible preventatives of COVID-19, and I see no mention of zinc. My understanding (and I may be wrong) is that proponents of HCQ typically recommend using HCQ in combination with zinc supplementation, not least because (again, as I understand it, and I may be wrong) HCQ can act as a zinc ionophore. So why—so it appears—is zinc not included?

NAC N-Acetylcysteine (DrBeen)

TMR f "NAC N-Acetylcysteine", Drbeen Medical Lectures YouTube channel (15 May 2020)

I'm going to have to stop sharing these videos from Dr. Been, but this one just has to get flagged up here. This, in my view, is a particularly interesting and useful explanation of how the substance N-acetylcysteine might help in the fight against Covid-19. Again, I had not heard of this until recently, but many sources are claiming that this could be helpful on several fronts. And to cap it all, it's cheap, requires no prescription (at least here in the UK) and is widely available.

(Again, please be aware that I am NOT a medical doctor. I have no training in medicine whatsoever, so please do not take this posting as medical advice in any way. I am simply sharing with you something of interest.)

Cashing In with Negative Interest Rates (IMFblog)

TMR n "Cashing In: How to Make Negative Interest Rates Work", IMF Blog (05 February 2019)

Just in case (after TMR's recent interview with Patrick M. Wood) anyone should be in doubt that the international banking world is desperate to get rid of cash, here's a revealing piece from early last year in the IMF Blog (of the International Monetary Fund, no less).

In efforts to prop up our dysfunctional economies, and given the difficulty of erasing cash altogether, they suggest dividing currency into two parts. One part would be digital and the other ol'-fashioned cash. Then they could manipulate us into spending instead of saving by charging negative interest rates on our savings and pegging the exchange rate between the two forms of currency to the negative interest rates on savings.

Coronavirus: Something's Not Right (Dr Chris Martenson)

TMR k Chris Martenson, "Coronavirus: Something's Not Right Here", Peak Prosperity YouTube channel (01 May 2020)

Another intriguing video by Dr Martenson (now Wikipedia persona non grata for airing independent thoughts on SARS-CoV-2). In this presentation Martenson looks at the official research record about hydroxychloroquine and asks the question: How come a drug that's been used for so long, so broadly, and with such confidence in its acceptable level of safety, is now (all of a sudden) too risky to recommend for Covid-19?

(I'm going to have to hold back on flagging up these Martenson videos! If you don't already, why not subscribe to his channel?)

Are Our Scientists Lying To Us? (Dr Chris Martenson)

TMR s Chris Martenson, "Are Our Scientists Lying to Us?", Peak Prosperity YouTube channel (04 May 2020)

How long this link will work I don't know. As we know, videos are getting taken down thick and fast these days if they don't toe the official line on the pandemic—and Dr Martenson has had his Wikipedia page deleted for being a naughty boy—so we'll see what happens. Anyway, I think this is a "must watch" video, and possibly very important. Contrary to confident official statements that SARS-CoV-2 is best explained as the result of entirely natural mutations, Martenson points to evidence that part of its RNA sequence ("specifically the polybasic furin cleavage site PRRA") "has all the appearance of an "insert" (i.e., something that does NOT look like a natural mutation)."

America Is a Technocracy, Not a Democracy (McMaken)

TMR dRyan McMaken, "America Is a Technocracy, Not a Democracy", © Mises.org  (01 May 2020)

Perhaps never before in American history have the unelected technocrats played such an enormous role in shaping public policy in America.

In recent weeks, members of Congress have been missing in action. Late last month, the House of Representatives passed the biggest spending bill in history while most members were absent. Member votes were not recorded and the legislation was passed with a voice vote, which required only a tiny handful of members.
