I have a theory about why so many “experts,” politicians, media people and government bureaucrats are trying to discourage the use of hydroxycloroquine, in combination with azithromycin and zinc, to treat COVID-19. It’s not just that they oppose anything President Trump has expressed approval for, although that’s part of it. Here’s a thought: what if it’s not because this therapy won’t work, but because it WILL?

In other words: if we do have an effective treatment and/or preventative, the pandemic might be over too soon to be used as an excuse to make all the societal changes some want to impose.

This really hit me when I heard Dr. Anthony Fauci say that we wouldn’t necessarily be able to have in-person elections by November of this year. How many Democrats would LOVE to see mail-in voting for the entire country? How conveeeeeeenient. And don’t listen when they say mail-in ballots don’t encourage election fraud. That’s a crock, as you’ll see from the story linked to here.

Those who want power –- during this pandemic and ever after –- are full of ideas for controlling the population. Steve Hilton, host of THE NEXT REVOLUTION on FOX NEWS, calls it “technocratic hubris...a technocrat’s dream and America’s nightmare.” As he reported on Sunday, former head of the Food & Drug Administration Scott Gottlieb is pushing a plan for “contract tracing,” which “can be achieved through strengthened public health case investigation augmented by technology and community-level collaborations.” It’s a very complicated program of mass virus testing (not antibody testing) to (quoting Dr. Fauci) “identify, isolate, contact-trace” everyone who gets the virus. This is preposterous, when an unknown number, into the millions, have already been or will be exposed to the virus, and the test won’t identify those. But Apple and Google are ready to step up and be a part of this monstrous program to track what in the end could be virtually everyone.

Here’s one alternative (in addition to drug therapy): a science-based “Re-open America Safely, But Soon” proposal that gives specifics on how to do just that, starting as soon as May 1. You’ll want to watch the segment on Steve Hilton’s show, linked here, but in short, the steps are as follows:

STEP 1. Get accurate infection data. We still don’t know how widespread and deadly this virus even is. Based on a Stanford University study done in the San Francisco Bay area, the actual number of infections could be much, much higher than official testing results have shown. If that is true, it means the virus is VERY highly contagious but much less deadly than has been assumed. (It might turn out that the actual mortality rate is more like 1 in 1,000.) To get the data, we need representative-sample community antibody sampling –- as opposed to government antibody surveillance –- to tell us what fraction of a given community has been exposed. Importantly, this kind of sampling is much less expensive than just relentlessly testing every last person; they think it can reasonably be done in every community in the country. And it won’t take long.

STEP 2. Get accurate risk data. The suppositions we have on risk factors (age, underlying conditions, etc.) are too vague at present. We don’t need so much focus on people who will get the virus but will be fine, and the vast majority will. Rather, we need to know why some people who are young and seemingly healthy are getting sick and dying anyway, but Hilton reports that, believe it or not, hospitals have not been collecting data on their medical history. The White House should mandate the collection of this information, called “co-morbidity data.”

STEP 3. Use the information from Steps 1 and 2 to quarantine and protect the truly vulnerable. If we can do this, we don’t have to re-open the economy bit by bit or wait until a vaccine comes out (in a year-and-a-half?) The whole country doesn’t need to stay shut down if millions have already been exposed but have never gotten sick or have recovered.

On Sunday, Hilton interviewed three of the people who put this plan together, including Stanford University Professor Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, biophysicist Dr. Andrew Bogan, and JetBlue founder David Neeleman. Dr. Bhattacharya added an important point: that most casualties are happening in hospitals that have been overwhelmed, so the “opening up” may be delayed in areas in which those hospitals are located. (I would point out that starting drug therapy sooner might help with that, too.)

Neeleman noted that the reason we’re shut down is that we haven’t figured out who the people are who are at risk of grave illness and how to protect not everyone, but THOSE people. The idea is to save the economy AND those at risk. “I think we can do both if we do it right,” Neeleman said.

Hilton is hoping that those who like the “Safely, But Soon” idea will TELL THE PRESIDENT and/or your governor. You can follow Hilton on Twitter @SteveHiltonx or @NextRevFNC.

Their overview of the plan didn’t even touch on hydroxychloroquine as a promising treatment or even a preventative. But the “anecdotes” just keep coming; here’s the first-hand account in TOWNHALL from coronavirus patient Charles Vavruska, who ended up with double pneumonia and a dreaded trip to the ER at New York Presbyterian Hospital in Queens, New York. (Queens is pretty much the epicenter of the pandemic.) The bright spot in this is that after being admitted to the hospital, he could be put on hydroxychloroquine and zinc. “The Trump Treatment?” he asked the nurse. “Yes, the Trump Treatment,” she replied.

Nineteen hours after his first dose, he was already feeling better. After three days, his fever and aches were gone, and his energy and appetite were back. He was still on oxygen, but at a low level. (Note: that is not the same as being on a ventilator; fortunately, he got the drugs before needing one of those.) He’s home now and credits “the Trump Treatment” for his recovery.

But he notes with great consternation that Gov. Andrew Cuomo has banned this therapy EXCEPT in hospitals. “Why not treat COVID-positive individuals BEFORE they deteriorate sufficiently to require hospitalization?” he asks. This would prevent more serious illness and relieve overburdened hospitals.

He’s right; Cuomo shouldn’t be “playing doctor,” and his arbitrary restriction on this is ridiculous. Drug companies have donated 100 million doses of HCQ to the federal government, and more are coming. Everyone who has come down with respiratory symptoms from COVID-19 should be able to receive this drug. Just think how many more “anecdotes” we would have from which to collect data. But, no, that might be too easy a solution, and we might be able to get back to normal too quickly for some.

Here’s his story in the NEW YORK POST.

HUCKABEE researcher/writer Laura Ainsworth has more to say, personally, on this issue, in a “from the trenches” installment from her home in the Dallas area. You see, it’s not just at the federal level that some people have a desire to control and are resisting a treatment that might possibly end the shut-down. It happens locally, too. But you can bet that if she gets the virus, she will move heaven and earth to get “The Trump Treatment,” BEFORE having to be admitted to a hospital!

    I commented previously on the defunding of the WHO.... AND RESPECTFULLY I was wrong ; dead wrong ... further research into both sides of the argument is conclusive... the President is doing the right thing and I trust his decision. Concerning this post there are those in America who are using this crisis to implement radical ideas and changes as demonstrated by the abusive and expensive democrat control first relief bill... and by democrat governors totally disregarding God given rights enshrined in the Constitution and it's amendments... do they want America to fail? is it time to water the Liberty Tree with our blood again?

    Democrats will stoop to any measure to try to get back in control, I believe they are partly responsible for this virus, they will try to blame trump.
    There is to bigger chance for fraud with mail in ballots. Democrats will use it to their advantage.

    question: How many of the recovered covid19 patients had the annual flu shot? how many did not? how many that passed had the flu shot? how many did not? I think this stat will be very interesting and also a contributing factor to the "hotspots"

    the social distancing gave the hospitals and (thank you government, private corporations) time to obtain the necessary equipment for all patients to be treated.

    info: I to the annual flu shot.. but last year came down with typeA flu after caring for a grand. I went to the doc right away. there was no fever. just a sense I did not feel good and I had an idea on what it was. I looked healthy. but the doc listened and took the typeA test. with a 24 hr turn over result time. she also said it was best to start Tampi-flu aniti-viral right away as it worked the best when taken early- the choice was mine. I decided to fill the script and start the med. the next day the results came in as positive typeA. I became very sick -having the flu shot gave me some immunity - and am confident starting the med early helped to survive this flu at home (and weeks couch time).

    Gov.,
    Sir, one idea is that Trump could require all mail-in ballots to contain the Name, state, Id type, Id number, date issued, and date expires in order to be counted. This way all ballots with duplicate or invalid id numbers from the same state could be rejected. However, I do not want to see mail-in voting.

    I had thought President Trump had vetoed the idea of mail in voting. But you're right. that's what Democrats want. I am conservative Republican but somehow I have gotten on an email list from liberals. One thing I keep getting is pleas for donations to save the Post Office which President Trump is trying to destroy. They suggest the Post Office will be out of business by June 2020 if I don't help.

    If the "trump treatment" was given to all BEFORE hospitalization, cuomo wouldn't have his "free" publicity speech for president and his control over other weaker governors (like NJ's murphy) Murphy banned HCQ/zinc, too, for all New Jerseyans. I think he's posturing for V.P. Power and control is DEFINITE the agenda of the demoncRATS. As for the testing reports, a rumor I've heard, lately, is that Gates wants to immunize EVERYONE with a vaccine containing a computer chip and we won't know which vaccine, which has the chip. Could this be true or just a 50's fiction movie?

  • Linda Johnson

    04/19/2020 12:50 PM

    Two things.

    1. There is a good description of how Hydroxycloraquil works on YouTube channel "MedCram'. In short, zinc is a ion. In order for it to be effectively absorbed by cells in the body it needs a gateway. Hydroxycloraquil creates the gateway for zinc to be absorbed in the cells. When this happens, the virus can't replicate, effectively stopping the virus.

    2. We live in Thurston County in Washington State. We vote by mail. I trust the results of the voting in our county. My husband voted in the Presidential Primary. He didn't check a party box, so his vote couldn't be counted. He received a letter in the mail letting him know along with a form to make the correction, so his vote could be counted.

    Dear Governor Huckabee,
    We, the American people, have been diligent and have complied with all of the rules of staying at home and washing our hands, etc., etc. to help in supposedly "flattening the curve" but it is time to GIVE THE PEOPLE BACK THEIR RIGHTS AND LIBERTIES. There are too many left liberal Democrats who would like nothing more than to continue to control American people. It is time that people are given their right to determine if they choose to shelter in place (which is fine if they CHOOSE...esp if they know they have underlying conditions), but it is also time to let people decide for themselves if they want to take whatever the risk is to go back to work and return to their usual lives. Most of us DO NOT WANT A "NEW NORMAL"...LET'S RETURN TO OUR OLD NORMAL with the addition of a raised awareness to good hygiene, and certainly, staying home when we are sick! American people are smart but we are being crushed financially and economically from the closing of our country and this has got to BE TURNED IN AN OPEN DIRECTION NOW!
    THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

    Governor, as usual your observations are spot on. Thank you for the clarity and common sense. At age 66 I shouldn’t be surprised by anything the left says or does, regardless of how mind numbingly hypocritical they may be. I believe the left truly hates America and the traditions and freedoms she represents, quite unlike the democrats of the past. Again, thank you for your clarity and common sense.

    There is something very fishy going on that this country is NOT using HCQ (hydroxycxhloroquine) when everyone else in the world is and that it is totally safe with virtually NO side effects and is a proven drug around since 1955.
    I see the non-use of HCQ as criminally negligent and those restricting its use as murderers. To me, the motive behind this drug's non-use must have some diabolical motive to be so callously impervious to the positive results of using this drug. It's like coming up with a cure for cancer or a weight loss pill that is safe and actually works and big pharma and/or the AMA decide that they will loose too much money not using "established" protocol and lives are less important than money.
    I'll bet its something very close to this. The more that I see how this country operates, the more of a stench it becomes in my nostrils.
    The very simple solution to this CHINA virus is SIMPLY to blanket this country with the use of HCQ, regardless of testing since HCQ covers any and all eventualities, and get back to work. Why not? WHAT HAVE WE GOT TO LOOSE?!

I have a theory about why so many “experts,” politicians, media people and government bureaucrats are trying to discourage the use of hydroxycloroquine, in combination with azithromycin and zinc, to treat COVID-19. It’s not just that they oppose anything President Trump has expressed approval for, although that’s part of it. Here’s a thought: what if it’s not because this therapy won’t work, but because it WILL?

In other words: if we do have an effective treatment and/or preventative, the pandemic might be over too soon to be used as an excuse to make all the societal changes some want to impose.

This really hit me when I heard Dr. Anthony Fauci say that we wouldn’t necessarily be able to have in-person elections by November of this year. How many Democrats would LOVE to see mail-in voting for the entire country? How conveeeeeeenient. And don’t listen when they say mail-in ballots don’t encourage election fraud. That’s a crock, as you’ll see from the story linked to here.

Those who want power –- during this pandemic and ever after –- are full of ideas for controlling the population. Steve Hilton, host of THE NEXT REVOLUTION on FOX NEWS, calls it “technocratic hubris...a technocrat’s dream and America’s nightmare.” As he reported on Sunday, former head of the Food & Drug Administration Scott Gottlieb is pushing a plan for “contract tracing,” which “can be achieved through strengthened public health case investigation augmented by technology and community-level collaborations.” It’s a very complicated program of mass virus testing (not antibody testing) to (quoting Dr. Fauci) “identify, isolate, contact-trace” everyone who gets the virus. This is preposterous, when an unknown number, into the millions, have already been or will be exposed to the virus, and the test won’t identify those. But Apple and Google are ready to step up and be a part of this monstrous program to track what in the end could be virtually everyone.

Here’s one alternative (in addition to drug therapy): a science-based “Re-open America Safely, But Soon” proposal that gives specifics on how to do just that, starting as soon as May 1. You’ll want to watch the segment on Steve Hilton’s show, linked here, but in short, the steps are as follows:

STEP 2. Get accurate risk data. The suppositions we have on risk factors (age, underlying conditions, etc.) are too vague at present. We don’t need so much focus on people who will get the virus but will be fine, and the vast majority will.

The White House should mandate the collection of this information, called “co-morbidity data.”

STEP 3. Use the information from Steps 1 and 2 to quarantine and protect the truly vulnerable. If we can do this, we don’t have to re-open the economy bit by bit or wait until a vaccine comes out (in a year-and-a-half?) The whole country doesn’t need to stay shut down if millions have already been exposed but have never gotten sick or have recovered.

Dr. Bhattacharya added an important point: that most casualties are happening in hospitals that have been overwhelmed, so the “opening up” may be delayed in areas in which those hospitals are located. (I would point out that starting drug therapy sooner might help with that, too.)

Neeleman noted that the reason we’re shut down is that we haven’t figured out who the people are who are at risk of grave illness and how to protect not everyone, but THOSE people. The idea is to save the economy AND those at risk. “I think we can do both if we do it right,” Neeleman said.

Hilton is hoping that those who like the “Safely, But Soon” idea will TELL THE PRESIDENT and/or your governor. You can follow Hilton on Twitter @SteveHiltonx or @NextRevFNC.

Their overview of the plan didn’t even touch on hydroxychloroquine as a promising treatment or even a preventative. But the “anecdotes” just keep coming; here’s the first-hand account in TOWNHALL from coronavirus patient Charles Vavruska, who ended up with double pneumonia and a dreaded trip to the ER at New York Presbyterian Hospital in Queens, New York.

But he notes with great consternation that Gov. Andrew Cuomo has banned this therapy EXCEPT in hospitals. “Why not treat COVID-positive individuals BEFORE they deteriorate sufficiently to require hospitalization?” he asks. This would prevent more serious illness and relieve overburdened hospitals.

He’s right; Cuomo shouldn’t be “playing doctor,” and his arbitrary restriction on this is ridiculous. Drug companies have donated 100 million doses of HCQ to the federal government, and more are coming. Everyone who has come down with respiratory symptoms from COVID-19 should be able to receive this drug. Just think how many more “anecdotes” we would have from which to collect data. But, no, that might be too easy a solution, and we might be able to get back to normal too quickly for some.

Here’s his story in the NEW YORK POST.

    I like Steve Hilton. Someone how he tells it like it is and nobody stops him. I am praying, doing what I should do and praising God for blessing me. Blessings to you.

    If this is true, then that means that there are people in our government who literally want people to die in order to achieve their goals

    Has anyone else noted one point the media is not pushing? Keeping well nourished with wholesome, healthy food strengthens the immune system making our bodies resistant to disease. This virus could have been wiped out long ago.

    Two things.

    1. There is a good description of how Hydroxycloraquil works on YouTube channel "MedCram'. In short, zinc is a ion. In order for it to be effectively absorbed by cells in the body it needs a gateway. Hydroxycloraquil creates the gateway for zinc to be absorbed in the cells. When this happens, the virus can't replicate, effectively stopping the virus.

    2. We live in Thurston County in Washington State. We vote by mail. I trust the results of the voting in our county. My husband voted in the Presidential Primary. He didn't check a party box, so his vote couldn't be counted. He received a letter in the mail letting him know along with a form to make the correction, so his vote could be counted.

    I've thought the same thing, but hearing it outside of my own head makes it too real of a horrific possibility.

    My daughter is a lupus patient on plaquenil to maintain she also is on chemo for this. She tried to get her meds for May and pharmacy says they have none and what they do have they are sending to the hospitals. She has been on this medicine for 8 years it is one treatment that keeps her alive. After posting on Asa Hutchinson’s page there are many lupus patients in the same boat. Please help my daughter acquire her life saving medication!!

    Dear Governor Huckabee,
    We, the American people, have been diligent and have complied with all of the rules of staying at home and washing our hands, etc., etc. to help in supposedly "flattening the curve" but it is time to GIVE THE PEOPLE BACK THEIR RIGHTS AND LIBERTIES. There are too many left liberal Democrats who would like nothing more than to continue to control American people. It is time that people are given their right to determine if they choose to shelter in place (which is fine if they CHOOSE...esp if they know they have underlying conditions), but it is also time to let people decide for themselves if they want to take whatever the risk is to go back to work and return to their usual lives. Most of us DO NOT WANT A "NEW NORMAL"...LET'S RETURN TO OUR OLD NORMAL with the addition of a raised awareness to good hygiene, and certainly, staying home when we are sick! American people are smart but we are being crushed financially and economically from the closing of our country and this has got to BE TURNED IN AN OPEN DIRECTION NOW!
    THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

    Governor, as usual your observations are spot on. Thank you for the clarity and common sense. At age 66 I shouldn’t be surprised by anything the left says or does, regardless of how mind numbingly hypocritical they may be. I believe the left truly hates America and the traditions and freedoms she represents, quite unlike the democrats of the past. Again, thank you for your clarity and common sense.

    There is something very fishy going on that this country is NOT using HCQ (hydroxycxhloroquine) when everyone else in the world is and that it is totally safe with virtually NO side effects and is a proven drug around since 1955.
    I see the non-use of HCQ as criminally negligent and those restricting its use as murderers. To me, the motive behind this drug's non-use must have some diabolical motive to be so callously impervious to the positive results of using this drug. It's like coming up with a cure for cancer or a weight loss pill that is safe and actually works and big pharma and/or the AMA decide that they will loose too much money not using "established" protocol and lives are less important than money.
    I'll bet its something very close to this. The more that I see how this country operates, the more of a stench it becomes in my nostrils.
    The very simple solution to this CHINA virus is SIMPLY to blanket this country with the use of HCQ, regardless of testing since HCQ covers any and all eventualities, and get back to work. Why not? WHAT HAVE WE GOT TO LOOSE?!

    Totally agree with you!! Very sad the selfishness behind those resisting a drug which works. You know the rest- corrupt voting .... We will keep praying.
    In the gospel of Matthew we read :"Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known." in Mark:
    "For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither was any thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad."
    and gratefully, in I John "This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all." (KJV)

    I have been thinking this way since this all started. This is the way to take control and e actly what the socialist democrats have wanted all along. This has to stop before its too late to turn things around. Help

    PLEASE make this site 'Printer Friendly" I have many who do not have or use the Internet and by making several copies I can touch the Nursing Home and friendly businesses.
    BTW as always an excellent summary of current and recurring events.
