Sen. Johnson Asks Medical Journals for Records on Retracted Studies

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) in letters this week requested records from two prominent medical journalists regarding studies they retracted last year.

One study claimed that the anti-malarial hydroxychloroquine was linked to an increased risk of mortality among COVID-19 patients.

The findings of the study were widely circulated, as hydroxychloroquine drew many opponents after it was promoted by then-President Donald Trump.

But it was retracted by The Lancet in June 2020, about two weeks after it was published.

Researchers said Surgisphere, a Chicago-based company that employed one of the researchers who worked on the study, refused to share the dataset allegedly containing the records, prompting the other three authors to request a retraction.

The other study was published in May of last year by the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM).

Researchers said they found that taking certain blood pressure drugs did not appear to increase the risk of death among those with COVID-19.

The study was retracted about a month later at the behest of the researchers, who had also relied on data from Surgisphere.

Johnson noted that Dr. Eric Rubin, editor-in-chief of NEJM, said after the study was retracted that it shouldn’t have been published while Dr. Richard Horton, who holds the same position at The Lancet, said the paper his journal published was a “fabrication.”

“Although this fraudulent study was ultimately retracted, it is concerning and shameful that, in the midst of a pandemic, The Lancet published such a misleading paper on a potential early treatment for COVID-19,” Johnson wrote (pdf) to Horton.

He put a similar line in a letter to Rubin.

Johnson asked for all documents and communications regarding the studies by Jan. 4, 2022.

“We received Senator Johnson’s letter yesterday and are preparing a response,” a spokesperson for NEJM told The Epoch Times in an email.

The Lancet did not respond to a request for comment.

Document Reportedly Reveals FDA Colluded With USPS To Block Delivery Of Ivermectin

The mainstream media and low-ratings fake news cable networks are lying to you about alternative cures for COVID. They’re not only lying about alternate cures for COVID and COVID symptoms, but they’re also lying about the drugs that have been safely sued for decades to treat a variety of issues.

Case in point…when MSNBC’s chief misinformation host, Rachel Maddow tweeted a bald-faced lie about patients overdosing on Ivermectin in Oklahoma, there were no repercussions for her irresponsible reporting that likely led to COVID patients who could’ve benefitted from Ivermectin being afraid to take the FDA approved drug.

Ivermectin is by all definitions a wonder drug. So, it makes sense for us to wonder why the CDC, NIH, FDA, and WHO were down on it for so long. If you missed the Ivermectin story Granite Grok shared last week here is an exerpt:.

When aspirin showed signs of improving health outcomes related to COVID, they bad-mouthed that. Asprin. Someone even suggested dropping it as a daily treatment for men at risk for cardiac arrest.

Ironically, their cure (mRNA Vax) has a short history with a risk of cardiac complications (to name but one), unlike Ivermectin, over which many Dems are still outraged. The sort of rage that prompts them to repeat, repost and defend moronic claims by even dumber talking heads and so-called experts.

Just go on social media, anywhere the stench of leftism is permitted to pollute the virtual air, and type I-V-E-R-M-E-C-T-I-N.

Stupid will flourish in abundance, complete with the nasty that rides side-car in every liberal trash-mouths excuse for an opinion.

We’re here to help.

This video is called the Ivermectin story. It talks about how natural and effective this drug is and how great it is for treating animals and people – safely for over 30 years. A medical advance so highly acclaimed, it won a Nobel Prize.

MEANWHILE, the COVID Vaccines are not even 12 months old officially, and their record is the worst of any vaccine since before Ivermectin was discovered. A record stained with blood and now the lives of children.

Save this link or keep it handy. The next time some lefty badmouths Ivermectin, share it.

The video includes an introduction and a Q and A after. The actual story starts at 1:06 and ends at  12:05.

Blue State Conservative guest post by  Steve MacDonald at Granite Grok

The obvious response is that it does something they don’t want done, and what is that?

Treating people early who test positive for COVID19 with symptoms. Reducing the need for hospitalization, saving ICU beds for people who need them. Saving lives.

Ivermectin has done all those things.

Speaking About News

Here is a locally cached copy of the entire letter.

When the COVID Cult rants about people dead from COVID remind them that those lives and many more were lost because of the ongoing political response.

Why inhibit use or access to something that is safe and will help? Why act like it’s not for people or that it’s dangerous when neither of those things was true?

Again, the obvious response is that it does something they do not want to be done and what is that? It keeps people alive and negates the need for any additional pharmaceutical intervention.

If Ivermectin saves you, some of you, most of you, there’s no reason to risk the side effects of mRNA injections.
