Regardless of the ultimate outcome of the midterm elections, the fight must go on. The leaders of large US Medical organizations show no signs of backing down. This month’s entire journal for the American Medical Association is devoted to the horrors that will unfold with the SCOTUS Dobbs ruling. Censorship and anti-physician ‘misinformation’ campaigns are as strong as ever.
On 31 October, 2022, The Atlantic published “Let’s Declare a Pandemic Amnesty.” The article begins by rightfully talking about decisions in early 2020 were made in an information vacuum, which was true at the time. However, the decisions in the education community were continued even though they were eventually proven false. Teachers and politicians are lamenting the plummeting test scores of children. Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers commented, “I agree.” She joined the Department of Education in railing against Texas and Florida governors for fighting COVID-19 mandates.
It is well known that during COVID-19, obesity soared, drug overdoses reached record levels, education scores plummeted, suicide and depression skyrocketed, and more deaths occurred on President Biden’s watch than under President Trump’s time in office. The White House, CDC, and major medical professional and licensing organizations colluded with social media and mass media to censor dissent from physicians and private citizens. In the end, the US had a 38% higher death rate per 100,000 citizens than Sweden. Sweden didn’t elect to execute the draconian lockdowns endorsed by US medical, teacher, and government organizations. The lockdowns likely led to more actual COVID-19 deaths. The grievous errors in judgement generated significant economic, social, and health strife within the nation that will plague the nation’s health for years to come.
The science of COVID-19 and it’s mRNA vaccine are far from ‘settled.’ Investigations will likely show more corruption, errors, and big Pharma influence that led to faulty decisions and direct harm to patients.
It is only a matter of time before Dr Fauci, the CDC, and major medical organizations similarly ask for a covid amnesty in the medical sphere. The medical community has learned how to use censorship, government mandates, and data manipulation to thrust their version of ‘science’ on America. Their version is laden with profits, power, and pathways to their pet social justice projects.
We dare not allow amnesty for medical leaders. Instead, they need to be investigated and, when justified, prosecuted. Failing to do so will condemn Americans to future medical disasters from pandemics and other potential health crises.
