Wednesday on The Robert Scott Bell Show:
The doctor in a COVID-19 disinformation video endorsed by Trump belongs to a fringe Tea Party-backed group of medics whose founder said the virus is not a major threat Dr. Stella Immanuel, who appeared in a controversial video promoting an unproven COVID-19 treatment, is a member of a group of pro-Trump medics who have for months been pushing misinformation about the virus. In the video, clips of which were shared this week by President Donald Trump, Immanuel appears at a news conference outside the Supreme Court with other members of the group, America’s Frontline Doctors, and GOP Rep. Ralph Norman. The members promote the drug hydroxychloroquine as a preventive treatment and a cure for COVID-19. The Food and Drug Administration has said that hydroxychloroquine is not an effective COVID-19 treatment and that it should not be used for coronavirus patients because of a risk of dangerous heart problems. The founder of America’s Frontline Doctors, who also appears in the video, has been a vocal critic of measures to slow the spread of COVID-19 and said in May that most Americans need not worry about it. Immanuel has also questioned the effectiveness of wearing masks to stop the spread of the disease — despite mounting evidence that it is one of the best protective measures people can take.
Trump’s New Favorite COVID Doctor Believes in Alien DNA, Demon Sperm, and Hydroxychloroquine A Houston doctor who praises hydroxychloroquine and says that face masks aren’t necessary to stop transmission of the highly contagious coronavirus has become a star on the right-wing internet, garnering tens of millions of views on Facebook on Monday alone. Donald Trump Jr. declared the video of Stella Immanuel a “must watch,” while Donald Trump himself retweeted the video. Before Trump and his supporters embrace Immanuel’s medical expertise, though, they should consider other medical claims Immanuel has made—including those about alien DNA and the physical effects of having sex with witches and demons in your dreams. Immanuel, a pediatrician and a religious minister, has a history of making bizarre claims about medical topics and other issues. She has often claimed that gynecological problems like cysts and endometriosis are in fact caused by people having sex in their dreams with demons and witches. She alleges alien DNA is currently used in medical treatments, and that scientists are cooking up a vaccine to prevent people from being religious. And, despite appearing in Washington, D.C. to lobby Congress on Monday, she has said that the government is run in part not by humans but by “reptilians” and other aliens.
Dr. Anthony Fauci isn’t ‘particularly concerned’ about the safety of Moderna coronavirus vaccine White House coronavirus advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci said Monday he is “not particularly concerned” about the safety risk of a potential coronavirus vaccine by Moderna, despite the fact that it uses new technology to fight the virus. The vaccine, which entered a large phase-three human trial Monday, uses messenger ribonucleic acid, or mRNA molecules, to provoke an immune response to fight the virus. Scientists hope mRNA, which relays genetic instructions from DNA, can be used to train the immune system to recognize and destroy the virus. While early studies show promise, mRNA technology has never been used to make a successful vaccine before. “It’s a novel technology. We are certainly aware of the fact that there’s not as much experience with this type of platform as there are with other standards,” Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told reporters on a conference call alongside National Institutes of Health Director Dr. Francis Collins. “I’m not particularly concerned,” Fauci said. “But I don’t want a lack of severe concern to get in the way that we are keeping an open mind to look for any possible deleterious effects as we get into and through the phase-three trial.”
FDA Director Peter Marks and the Ever-Shifting COVID Vaccine Narrative After suckering us into ruinous lockdown awaiting rescue by vaccine, the Pharma grifters are frantically dialing back the expectations they inflated. During an FDA teleconference on July 8, CBER’s Director Peter Marks said FDA is now willing to license COVID vaccines with a dismal 50%–and as low as 30%–efficacy, a humiliating retreat from the Gates/Fauci promise of a vaccine they intend to give to seven billion people in order for society to get back to “normal”. Equally deflating, NIH’s Tony Fauci conceded that vaccine immunity may only last a few months … Astra Zeneca is making two billion doses of its “Oxford” jab (Gates is heavily invested) despite proof that monkeys vaccinated transmit COVID. Paul Offit told CBS that the jab may not stop transmission and may only weaken not prevent symptoms. Marks conceded that a vaccine with 50% efficacy will not stop the virus. “We’re going to need a vaccine that’s probably in the order of 70% effective and 70%, at least, of the population is going to need to take it.”
Questions of The Day!
Hi Robert, I have had health issues since I was a baby. I had chronic ear infections, was on antibiotics frequently, and had severe pain in my abdomen for years. Finally I was told to remove gluten and dairy from my diet. That helped a lot. Since then I have also had to remove eggs. Now I’m still dealing with all sorts of issues. I was recently told to remove oxalates from my diet. I haven’t yet but will give that a try. My partner and I are starting your gut protocol this week. Any other suggestions or thoughts? Thank you!
Hi RSB and Super Don,
What does it mean if you are chronically low ferritin but normal blood cell count. B12 in range, thyroid numbers low but within range? Thanks! Love you guys!!!
Comment of The Day!
I enjoy your podcast. However, that said, I am dumbfounded as to why you would disagree with federal law enforcement going to these cities whose mayors and governors are allowing destruction of homes, businesses, churches, statues, and federal courthouses. The people need to be protected. These anarchists domestic terrorists need to be stopped and sent to federal prison. I completely agree with you on the masks and the vaccine though.
1,000-year-old medieval remedy could be potential antibiotic, scientists say Antibiotic resistance is real. In the years to come, we may no longer be able to treat and cure many of the infections we once could as bacteria outsmart our most sophisticated drugs. With drug resistance expected to result in 10 million deaths a year by 2050, scientists are hunting high and low for alternatives to antibiotics. A team of UK researchers has found some hope in an unexpected place: a medieval manuscript. A 1,000-year-old natural remedy made from onion, garlic, wine and bile salts has shown antibacterial potential, with promise to treat diabetic foot and leg infections, new research published Tuesday suggested. Known as Bald’s eyesalve, the treatment has the potential to tackle biofilm infections — communities of bacteria which resist antibiotics — making them much harder to treat, the researchers said. Biofilm infections are estimated to cost the United Kingdom alone more than 1 billion pounds ($1.3 billion) every year, the study said.
Hour 2 – Outside The Box With Ty Bollinger!
It’s time to go Outside The Box again with Ty Bollinger! What will we be talking about today?
Bernie Sanders’ New Healthcare Push: Masks For All U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, known best for his crusade to bring Medicare coverage to all Americans, is now a key backer of federal legislation to distribute masks to everyone in the U.S. to curb the spread of the Coronavirus strain Covid-19. The Vermont Senator Tuesday introduced the Masks for All Act, which would lead to the distribution of “three free, reusable masks to every person in the country, including individuals who are experiencing homelessness or living in group settings such as prisons, shelters, college dorms, and assisted living facilities.” The masks would be mailed to Americans via the United States Postal Service, said Sanders the former Democratic Presidential candidate who is now supporting Joe Biden’s bid for the White House against Donald Trump. The legislation is backed by more than a dozen Democratic U.S. Senators including Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer of New York. The legislation has also been introduced in the U.S. House and has more than two dozen cosponsors where the chamber is controlled by Democrats and has a good chance at passing.
US officials: Russia behind spread of virus disinformation U.S. officials say Russian intelligence officers are spreading disinformation about the coronavirus pandemic through English-language websites, trying to exploit a crisis that America is struggling to contain before the presidential election in November. Two Russians who have held senior roles in Moscow’s military intelligence service known as the GRU have been identified as responsible for a disinformation effort meant to reach American and Western audiences, according to U.S. government officials. They were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity Tuesday. Russian officials on Wednesday rejected the accusations as “conspiracy theories” and a “persistent phobia.” One of the sites singled out by the U.S. posted a response denouncing as “categorically false” the American assertions that it was linked to the Russian military intelligence service or was involved in propaganda. The information had previously been classified, but U.S. officials said it had been downgraded so they could more freely discuss it. Officials said they were doing so now to sound the alarm about the particular websites and to expose what they say is a clear link between the sites and Russian intelligence.
Fedcoin: A New Scheme for Tyranny and Poverty If some Congress members get their way, the Federal Reserve may soon be able to track many of your purchases in real time and share that information with government agencies. This is just one of the problems with the proposed “digital dollar” or “fedcoin.” Fedcoin was initially included in the first coronavirus spending bill. While the proposal was dropped from the final version of the bill, there is still great interest in fedcoin on Capitol Hill. Some progressives have embraced fedcoin as a way to provide Americans with a “universal basic income.” Both the Senate Banking Committee and the House Financial Services Committee held hearings on fedcoin in June. This is the first step toward making fedcoin a reality. Fedcoin would not be an actual coin. Instead, it would be a special account created and maintained for each American by the Federal Reserve. Each month, Fed employees could tap a few keys on a computer and — bingo — each American would have dollars added to his Federal Reserve account. This is the 21st century equivalent of throwing money from helicopters. Fedcoin could effect private cryptocurrencies. Also, it would limit the ability of private citizens to protect themselves from the Federal Reserve-caused decline in the dollar’s value.
Some US police resist enforcing coronavirus mask mandates Lang Holland, the chief of police in tiny Marshall, Arkansas, said he thinks the threat of the coronavirus has been overstated and only wears a face mask if he’s inside a business that requires them. He doesn’t make his officers wear them either. So the day after Republican Gov. Asa Hutchinson signed an order requiring masks to be worn in public throughout Arkansas, Holland made it clear his department wasn’t going to enforce the mandate in the Ozarks town of about 1,300, calling it an unconstitutional overreach. “All I’m saying is if you want to wear a mask, you have the freedom to choose that,” said Holland, who said he supports President Donald Trump. “It should not be dictated by the nanny state.” Holland is among a number of police chiefs and sheriffs in Arkansas and elsewhere who say they won’t enforce statewide mask requirements, even within their departments. Some say they don’t have the manpower to respond to every mask complaint, treating violations of the requirement as they would oft-ignored minor offenses such as jaywalking. Others, including Holland, reject the legal validity of mask requirements.
Medicated chewing gum the future of prescription drugs? Robotic ‘mouth’ could make it reality Modern robots can do all sorts of tasks that make our lives easier. From driving cars to flipping burgers, automation takes many things off the daily to-do list. Despite all the convenience, do humans really need a robot to chew for us too? Scientists in the United Kingdom say yes, and those mechanical jaws are now helping to create a new wave of medications — delivered by chewing gum. Researchers at the University of Bristol say medicated chewing gum is a very effective way of getting drugs into a patient’s body. The problem is there’s no proven method of testing how well gum releases medicine into the mouth. Without a “gold standard” to use, the U.K. team is examining how well a motorized mouth does the job. The study in IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering tests a robot built specifically to chew just like humans do. The robo-jaw comes with its own teeth, mimics human chewing motions, and even produces artificial saliva. During experiments, researchers say the “mouth” allows them to measure how much chemical is being released into the saliva. The study authors add this invention can help limit danger to human test subjects while scientists experiment with drug doses in gum.
