Then They Came for the Doctors… Is the Future of State Regulation of Medicine in Jeopardy?

Just in case you missed it, the following is straight from the CDC: 

Hydroxychloroquine can be prescribed to adults and children of all ages. It can also be safely taken by pregnant women and nursing mothers. 

Yes, you read that right.

The CDC has gone on record, in a CDC pamphlet issued on hydroxychloroquine for the prevention of malaria, touting the safety of hydroxychloroquine. 

Let that sink in. Hydroxychloroquine – the mere mention of which inspired nothing short of terror during the pandemic – was actually marked safe by the CDC before the pandemic. So safe it could even be used in children, pregnant women and nursing mothers without worry. All this, according to the CDC’s own words. 

That hydroxychloroquine could actually be “safe” seems shocking – underscoring the depth of lies unleashed by the COVID-19 “cartel” during the pandemic. The purposeful maligning of hydroxychloroquine by the medical-industrial complex started early on, in the summer of 2020. In anticipation of the “vaccine” rollout, Anthony Fauci maligned hydroxychloroquine after being promoted by then-President Donald Trump, with Fauci declaring it ineffective and suggesting it is unsafe to treat COVID-19. Later, after “vaccine” rollout in 2021, hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for COVID-19 was deemed “misinformation” by so-called “trusted messengers” who permeated our lives. Doctors who prescribed it for COVID-19 were professionally threatened. The message that hydroxychloroquine was somehow “unsafe” when prescribed in proper dosages was driven home by Biden’s infamous declaration in July of 2021 that COVID-19 “misinformation” was “killing people.” 

Instead of allowing doctors to prescribe hydroxychloroquine off-label to treat COVID-19, doctors were coerced into recommending a risky, experimental and unproven gene therapy product to their patients, although many had grave concerns. One of these gene therapy products was produced by pharmaceutical giant Pfizer. Never mind that Pfizer is one of the most notorious pharmaceutical manufacturers in modern history – in 2009 Pfizer paid $2.3 billion to resolve criminal and civil charges related to illegal promotion of its products in the largest health care fraud settlement in the history of the DOJ.

Hydroxychloroquine? Fact vs. Fiction 

Fact: When administered at the proper doses, the safety of hydroxychloroquine is well-founded across the globe. Hydroxychloroquine has been used for 85 years with billions of doses dispensed and has a higher safety profile than aspirin or acetaminophen. It is even listed among the WHO’s list of Essential Medicines. Physicians of many specialties, including Dermatology, Internal Medicine, Family Practice, Obstetrics and Gynecology, and Maternal Fetal Medicine have all used hydroxychloroquine for over 40 years without significant adverse effects or teratogenicity noted. In contrast to the experimental gene therapy rebranded as “vaccines,” at the proper doses hydroxychloroquine has a history of extremely safe usage, even in pregnancy, and comes complete with a pre-pandemic safety endorsement from the CDC.

Also fact: Hydroxychloroquine showed great promise at the beginning of the pandemic in the US and in many countries worldwide, with some studies indicating it reduced COVID-19 mortality by 50% or more. It was endorsed early on by Yale School of Public Health epidemiologist Harvey A. Risch and others as inexpensive oral medication which was effective against COVID-19 if given early on, before the virus had a chance to multiply and get out of control. Yet, thanks to a falsified May 2020 Lancet study – so flawed in statistical analysis and filled with impossibly contrived data that it was formally retracted – the use of hydroxychloroquine was abruptly halted in the US in the summer of 2020 before the “vaccines” were rolled out. 

In spite of the promise hydroxychloroquine had shown worldwide, and even though the Lancet study was exposed and retracted for using falsified and unverifiable data, on June 15, 2020 the FDA revoked the EUA issued for hydroxychloroquine, declaring it could no longer be used to treat COVID-19 in hospitalized patients outside of clinical trial. Despite ample evidence to the contrary, the FDA claimed hydroxychloroquine had not proven to be effective and could have serious side effects. Although the falsified Lancet study had been retracted on June 5, 2020, the damage to hydroxychloroquine as a COVID-19 treatment was a fait accompli. People were more terrified of hydroxychloroquine than they were of contracting COVID-19. Coincidence? Hardly – this stoked even more fear and created the perfect backdrop for the soon-to-be released gene therapy “vaccines” in 2021.

Then They Came for the Doctors

Yet, some doctors continued to promote and prescribe hydroxychloroquine as a COVID-19 prophylactic and treatment. Doctors who did so came under heavy professional and personal fire. Many were threatened with revocation of their license to practice medicine. Pharmacists in many states were likewise prohibited from dispensing hydroxychloroquine. Promotion of hydroxychloroquine for prevention or treatment of COVID-19 was deemed “misinformation” – all because it threatened the “vaccine” narrative. 

Despite hydroxychloroquine’s potential to prevent serious illness and its strong safety record, doctors were instructed not to prescribe it. Instead, they were instructed to do the unthinkable: send patients who had contracted COVID-19 home to die in the early, treatable phase of the disease. Doctors who refused were often disciplined; some were even terminated.

Sick and terrified patients were told to go home until they couldn’t breathe. Doctors were not allowed to be doctors, to practice medicine, or to treat sick patients. They were instead instructed to ignore decades of safety data on a promising and safe repurposed drug which had shown potential to save lives. 

For What Reason, One Might Ask? 

But why was hydroxychloroquine so falsely maligned? One reason is the potential for lost “vaccine” profits. Had hydroxychloroquine been recognized as effective against COVID-19 in 2020, or at the very least allowed with consent as an investigational drug for COVID-19, the Emergency Use Authorization for the forthcoming “vaccines” would have been jeopardized or even disallowed. A safe, effective drug for early treatment of COVID-19 would also have threatened the public’s acceptance of the experimental gene therapy injections rebranded as “vaccines” – now proving to be a far riskier health gamble than hydroxychloroquine. Billions if not trillions of dollars in profits to the medical-industrial complex were on the line if the public decided to reject the “vaccines.” 

Moreover, the existence of a safe, inexpensive and promising drug for early treatment of COVID-19 would have thwarted “vaccine” uptake by the masses, also resulting in a lost opportunity for global onboarding of a new platform technology. As explained here by the inventor of the mRNA technology, the opportunity to introduce an mRNA “platform” which was easily adapted by the Department of Defense for delivery of a myriad of other “packages” would be lost. 

Re-Shaping the Future of Medical Regulation?

The COVID-19 pandemic changed our world forever. But the move to falsely malign hydroxychloroquine and silence doctors who recommend it for COVD-19 may also signal the beginning of a reshaping of medical regulation in this country. Today, despite the utter failure of the “vaccines” to stop transmission, and in the face of increasing evidence that the “vaccines” are causing harm, they are still being pushed. Doctors are still being threatened with losing their licenses for “misinformation” if they prescribe hydroxychloroquine or any other off-label treatment that might counter the “vaccine” narrative. 

Even as the false “vaccine” narrative continues to collapse, those still pushing the false narrative are doubling down. For example, California Governor Newsom recently signed a bill into law which threatens doctors with loss of their state medical license for disseminating COVID-19 “misinformation.” The language of the bill provides clues about who may be driving it. This is because Section 1 of the bill refers to the Federation of State Medical Boards – a nonprofit organization which, by the words of its own vision statement, seeks to partner and innovate with state medical boards “to shape the future of medical regulation.” 

The Federation of State Medical Boards has no legal power to regulate medical doctors – a right specifically reserved to each of the states. However, its own website reveals how closely it works with the federal government and its crucial role in shaping medical regulation. The Federation of State Medical Boards attests on its website that it…

plays a crucial role in advocating for federal and state policies that impact the health and safety of patients and the medical regulatory system. From its advocacy office in Washington, D.C, the FSMB provides legislation, legal and communications services.

This may help explain the contents of a statement that the Federation of State Medical Boards issued in July of 2021 on COVID-19 “misinformation” which stated:

Physicians who generate and spread COVID-19 vaccine misinformation or disinformation are risking disciplinary action by state medical boards, including the suspension or revocation of their medical license.

California’s new law is fascinating in light of the foregoing and the stated activities of the Federation of State Medical Boards. This is because its new law essentially adopts the Federation of State Medical Boards’ July 2021 statement on COVID-19 misinformation, enshrining not only the words of this federally entrenched non-profit, but also the entity itself. Keep in mind that the Federation of State Medical Boards has zero legal power to regulate state medical boards. Yet, ignoring this, the California bill codified it right into Section 1 of California’s new law in the following text:

The Federation of State Medical Boards has released a statement warning that physicians who engage in the dissemination of COVID-19 vaccine misinformation or disinformation risk losing their medical license, and that physicians have a duty to provide their patients with accurate, science-based information.

This gives rise to critical questions about the future of state regulation of medicine. Is the Federation of State Medical Boards, working in tandem with the federal government, covertly attempting to usurp the state’s power to regulate medicine? Is the Federation of State Medical Boards making an unauthorized power grab? If so, doesn’t this infringe on the state’s power to regulate medicine and result in overreach? When does the Federation of State Medical Boards’ voice merge with the voice of the federal government, and when does its self-described “advocacy” cross the line, becoming essentially an arm of the federal government? It is perhaps no coincidence that the Federation of State Medical Boards was also awarded a $2.5 MM grant by the HHS in April of 2020 – far exceeding federal grants it previously received in every other year on record.

Taking a Different Path – Protecting the State Regulation of the Practice of Medicine and the Doctor-Patient Relationship

States like California are forcing questions like these by enacting legislation that seems bent on stripping doctors of licensure for “misinformation” – in lockstep with both the Federation of State Medical Boards and the federal government. However, there is good news – other states are flexing their regulatory muscles by introducing bills that would protect the doctor patient relationship and the doctor’s ability to prescribe off-label drugs like hydroxychloroquine to prevent or treat COVID-19. 

But take note: regulation by state medical boards of doctors who prescribe off-label drugs like hydroxychloroquine for COVID-19 has become a hot button issue. All states need to pay attention – they simply cannot afford to sit on the sidelines. The federal government may well be intent on quietly infiltrating state regulation of medicine with the covert help of non-profit “advocacy” groups such as the Federation of State Medical Boards, if given the opportunity.

Thankfully, many states are already being proactive, attempting to enact laws that would operate to protect those who prescribe, dispense and administer off-label drugs such as hydroxychloroquine. For example, there are approximately 82 bills pending in some 28 states pertaining to the use of re-purposed drugs in connection with prevention or treatment of COVID-19. Minnesota has no less that 6 such bills pending, including SF 4083 introduced in March of 2022 which would prohibit retribution or disciplinary actions by any health-related licensing boards against health practitioners for prescribing or dispensing off-label prescriptions. Multiple other states have similar bills, and at least one state, North Carolina, has a bill specifically recognizing the sanctity of the doctor/patient relationship. Whether any of these bills will be enacted into law, however, is yet to be seen.

Yet, as the California “misinformation” bill makes crystal clear, the threat to untainted state medical regulation and licensure is real. Finally, consider this: YouTube this week has announced it will begin essentially certifying health care providers. Given what we know about the federal government’s unconstitutional alliance with tech, this should give us great pause as another unauthorized foray into the states’ regulation of medicine is set to begin.
