This newsletter is exclusively for healthcare providers (doctor, nurse, pharmacists, ...) who realize that censorship is a bad idea.
I want to be a part of this movement. I am a retired RN and to say I am stunned and sickened by what is going on with the health care delivery system is an understatement! The first Amendment should be honored and accessible to every American despite their professional affiliation. The fact that a nurse, doctor, respiratory therapist et al cannot report incidences is a fabrication of a legal document the patients chart. Any misstatement or withholding of observed untoward effects upon a patient must be reported so as to render good care. One must watch Nurses of the Third Reich, it is horrifying that history is repeating itself. Censorship is the first brick in the building a totalitarian state. WAKE UP SOON PLEASE
I have been a Registered Nurse at the same Hospital for 34yrs! I was already at the age of 15 not a vaccine believer.
I am always getting sent to the principals office ( HR) for giving informed consent about the HepB shot . I work newborn nursery / NICU . I see the relief in parents when they realize I’m on their side..
A few weeks ago I attended a reawakening conference. I bought Dr. Simone Golds book. I Do not Consent.
I brought it to work and a couple co- workers were looking at it, I thought one of them was taking it home. They didn’t so I guess it must have “ triggered “ someone because my boss put the book in a Manila envelope with a note.Please don’t bring items like this to work this is not the appropriate place ... Nothing like censorship at its finest! I like to tell the Drs and co- workers .. I’m going to be on the right side of history! Where will you be ?
Steve, your work is amazing! I have been a Substack subscriber of yours. I am a dentist, part of group who has collaborated on a position paper to the ADA regarding their recent ethics statement that it would not be admonished or discouraged to deny treatment to an unvaccinated person. In addition, we address the lockstep narrative the ADA followed and the censorship that we endured for speaking about the lies regarding masks, the harms of vaccines, and the damage of lockdowns. Our hope is to make our position paper public, just not sure where to present. Currently we are schedule to a meet with the NC State Dental Society and then hopefully on to the ADA.
In nursing school, it was drilled into our heads that nurses were the patients advocate. I remember hearing that as such, we were to go toe-to-toe with anyone who threatened the patients life. It makes my heart sick to know that is no longer the case. Why have nurses, if not to care for, help to heal and protect the patient? What happened to the ART of nursing?
Steve, I think your heart is in the right place, but strategically, this would work better:
Doctors & nurses are frightened of losing their paychecks, and too many are dependent on big centralized hospital systems, so they lost the voices that they once used confidently as independent practitioners.
Our most logical allies are also the most obvious: the patients themselves and their families. Obviously, the latter don't want any garbage treatment such as remdesivir. They want the good stuff: ivermectin or HCQ. Zinc, vitamins D & C in high dose. These are what I use with COVID patients, and I'm not afraid to. The FDA has ZERO jurisdiction over the practice of medicine, so can go pound sand, and a medical board cannot touch a medical license without cause, such as injuring a patient, because we physicians have a legal property interest in our license, which they can't just grab capriciously.
Dr. McCullough was right when he told Joe Rogan that COVID tyranny is primarily a game of chicken. If you tell doctors that they'll get in trouble for prescribing ivermectin, then the weakest will become even more fearful. The truth is that we can prescribe it whenever it is appropriate in our medical judgment.
I am a Canadian nurse (for a few more days I will retain that designation) that lost my job over vaccine mandate. Placed on unpaid for 2 months, opted to retire (in my 60's) to at least have some income. It was probably 6-7 months before I'd planned to go. My union is fighting the mandate and there is perhaps a small hope that the several grievances will provide some payout to me in a year or two. I have no confirmations, but saw a couple of dialysis patients pass away having d dimers higher than I have ever seen in my career (10-20 times higher), and with stroke & cardiac symptoms as well. No one ever questioned ☹️. I was the only person in my unit to decline the shot. I'd had issues (up to requiring brain surgery) after my one & only flu shot, and have severe (anaphylactic) allergies. I received my first pension payment December 1 (after requesting early November!). All unvaxxed staff at my employer were fired December 2. (All had been on unpaid leave since mid-September. Canadian federal gov't changed rules in October so that no one who lost a job because of no jab could receive unemployment insurance. They (our feds) are *very* controlling and very petty.
I work for a big healthcare system and I’m horrified by how much things changed in the last 2 years.
I believe in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and the rule of law. I believe they, and we, are more powerful than this crummy little virus.
I believe truth will prevail.
I have to. We all have to.
The alternative is impossible to imagine.
I’m in, enough of this bullshit!
I’m a retired physician who practiced medicine in Texas for 45 years. By a stroke of good fortune, my wife (a retired ICU nurse) and I moved to the panhandle of Idaho several years ago. I say good fortune because the culture up here in northern Idaho remains remarkably free of the mass psychosis afflicting much of the world. It saddens me when I speak with some of my previous colleagues who are unable even to entertain the question of the effectiveness or safety of the SARS vaccines. Does their profound lack of inquisitiveness reflect a closing of the mind?
How has it happened that the community of American physicians capitulated to the diktats of the FDA and CDC as embodied in the personality of Anthony Fauci? The physician community has not simply offered no resistance to the vaccine program, but has actively promoted the program. How can a group of individuals who have achieved a high degree of academic performance lack the insight or motivation to resist a crime against humanity?
Before I offer my reflections on the status of American physicians, let me dispense with one essential counterpoint. Am I a fool? Do I have scales over my eyes secluded as I am in the rural mountains of America? Dr Peter McCullough estimates that only about 500 physicians out of 1 million physicians in the US believe, as he does, that the vaccine program constitutes bad medicine and moral corruption. If his estimate is correct anywhere within two orders of magnitude, this shameful abdication of the Hippocratic Oath represents an astonishing sociological phenomenon. Could it be that Dr. McCullough and the other 500 physicians who have swallowed the red pill suffer from our own special psychosis? Maybe? However, not until we have full public disclosure of the research conducted by the pharmaceutical companies submitted to the FDA for the EUA and independent validation of the VAERS data will we capitulate. If we suffer from a delusion, prove it.
The closing of the mind started when Lyndon Johnson signed into law in 1965 Title XVIII of the Social Security Act. The Medicare and Medicaid act marks the first substantive intrusion of the federal government into the practice of medicine. The federal intrusions into the practice of medicine were conducted under the guise of cost effectiveness and best practice. Over the decades the federal government manipulated the practice of medicine through the mechanism of reimbursement. Only the medicine that CMS deemed cost effective would be reimbursed. Parenthetically, the private health insurance industry follows in sync the policies of CMS. At first, and for the most part, the payment policies issued by the federal government have been valid and constructive. In time, however, physicians became conditioned to practice medicine as designed by CMS through an inexorable scheme of positive reinforcement, money. After 55 years of dutifully following CMS policies, physicians lost interest, capacity or both in making independent medical decisions for their patients. Think Ivermectin.
The next phase in the closing of the mind came with Barack Obama signing into law the Affordable Care Act, aka, Obama Care. The ramifications of Obama Care are too many to summarize in a few words, and even to this day, medicine in America still struggles with the full measure of the law. Let me highlight one salient feature of the law that profoundly altered the psychology of medicine. EMR, electronic medical records mandated by the law, has become the essence of the practice of medicine today. Back in the days of Osler and Harvey (The Principles and Practice of Medicine), medicine was patient-centric. The act of medicine began with the history and the physical. The physician spends time talking to the patient and examining the body. Within the context of this intimate rapport, the physician comes to understand the patient and the nature of the malady affecting the patient. With this understanding and trust between the patient and the physician, a treatment plan can move forward. Obama care mandates universal EMR and enforces the utilization of EMR with reimbursement. CMS reimburses the physician according to the magnitude of the electronic footprint. Never mind that the physician would spend time with the patient, rather the physician makes more money spending time on the computer entering and reviewing data. Notice also the increased reliance on telemedicine (eliminate the physical contact) and AI (eliminate the doctor) which only reinforces the digitization of medicine. With each of these digital interventions we witness a further erosion of the human contact between physician and patient. Is it any small wonder that physicians could act inhumanly towards patients?
Concomitant with the relentless directives of CMS, physicians lost power and prestige in the wake of the administrative class in the medical centers, hospitals and clinics. Back in the day, classically trained physicians were entrusted to set the local standards for medicine. They ran the hospitals and participated in hospital boards. As the rules, regulations and other bureaucratic encumberments gradually consumed the practice of medicine, the administrators who spoke the language of the bureaucrats assumed more power. Starting about 25 years ago, the medical centers and HMOs began purchasing physician practices. What little authority the physicians retained after the rise of the administrative class, they sold off for money. Today Marcus Weby, MD no longer works for himself; rather he is subjugated to the directives of a hospital network or corporation. The independent physician practitioner is as rare as the gray wolf.
How could the American physician promote a vaccination program that has not been adequately vetted? Primum non nocere. First, do no harm. I would argue that before physicians abdicated their morality as exemplified by their complicity in the vaccine crimes, they had already forfeited their intelligence and freedom. It took only two generations to close the mind of the American physician. Might we ponder how the physician serves as a metaphor for western civilization?
Thanks Steve for creating this group. I have been a nurse for 33 years. I was fired (aka exited) from my NY job with Northwell 9/28/21. I knew this would happen when our internal emails from the CEO said our goal for vaccination would be 100%, I knew there would be no exemptions, and that was before vaccines were even approved for EUA. I was working per-diem in December 2020 while on winter break from my university job. This was the time during the vaccine rollouts for healthcare workers. RRT’s were being called multiple times throughout each day to the conference room where staff were being vaccinated….it was my wake up call. I was already slightly skeptical but this solidified it for me, and sent me on my research path! My skepticism originated from a vaccine injury I incurred as a new nurse in the 1990’s from the Hepatitis B vaccine at the beginning of my career. I never took the flu shot or any other vaccine from that moment on. I instinctively knew that something was wrong. I now teach fundamental skills to sophomore nursing students. It is so difficult to have the opinions I do, and know I cannot share them. I do focus on patient advocacy, but my students are so green. I am close to many nurse friends who feel like me, and are either vaccinated to keep their jobs, or “exited” like me! It is a damn shame but not a surprise. The system is so corrupt!
Had 2 new (bad) things happen today. After catching on that I was treating COVID, a pharmacist refused to fill ANY medication for COVID. Am used to that with IVM but not everything. Then another took down my called-in prescription for Medrol, everything seemed normal. Until he called maybe 10 min later and asked what I was treating, to which I (partly in truth) stated asthma. He then called out to someone else "she's not treating COVID." I didn't ask, just hung up, but the implication was that they would refuse to fill STEROIDS now if used for COVID. So there is about to be a slew of asthma all over the US!!!
The point of this is to advocate against censoring professional medical opinions or theories. Sars-Cov 2 is a novel virus; the treatment plan should be an innovative and collective approach. The narrative from the CDC, HHS, FDA regarding treatments has only been to use EUA therapeutics for a novel virus. Silencing any logical questions, peer-reviewed science, evidence-based practice or clinical observations which may counter the aforementioned narrative is unethical and malpractice. Medicine is an evolving science and art. In efforts to most effectively protect public health, those on the frontlines and in the trenches are trained and capable of assessing the disease, treatments and outcomes equally if not better than pharmaceutical companies and corporate hospital administrators. It is time to break the chains of censorship and allow physicians and healthcare workers to practice their art to save lives.
Thanks for setting this up.
16 year RN here, got out of direct patient care when the mandates were rumors.
Glad to see others who seem as bewildered as I am by what’s going on.
Steve , I belong to the Health Independence Alliance. We had the whistleblowers about the infertility clinics . I have seen a huge decline in births . In the early 2000 we averaged 250-300 births a month now we rarely get 100... Guess what came out for young teenage girls ? HPV Shot .. 2006 they introduced this shot . How old are those girls now 25-30 guess where they are ... The infertility clinics now !
