Tuesday on The Robert Scott Bell Show:
US recommends ‘pause’ for J&J vaccine over clot reports The U.S. is recommending a “pause” in using the single-dose Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine to investigate reports of potentially dangerous blood clots. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration said Tuesday they were investigating unusual clots that occurred 6 to 13 days after vaccination. The clots occurred in veins that drain blood from the brain and occurred together with low platelets. All six cases were in women between the ages of 18 and 48; there was one death and all remained under investigation. The reports appear similar to a rare, unusual type of clotting disorder that European authorities say is possibly linked to another COVID-19 vaccine not yet cleared in the U.S., from AstraZeneca. More than 6.8 million doses of the J&J vaccine have been administered in the U.S., the vast majority with no or mild side effects. Federally run mass vaccination sites will pause the use of the J&J shot, and states and other providers are expected to follow. The other two authorized vaccines, from Moderna and Pfizer, make up the vast share of COVID-19 shots administered in the U.S. and are not affected by the pause.
‘A devastating blow’ — doctor says pausing J&J Covid vaccine will have far-reaching effects Dr. Kavita Patel told CNBC on Tuesday she believes the Food and Drug Administration’s recommendation that states pause the use of Johnson & Johnson’s single-shot Covid vaccine is likely to have lasting impacts on the nation’s efforts to combat the pandemic. “This is a devastating blow to this J&J vaccine effort in the United States,” said Patel, a primary care physician in Washington who worked on health-care initiatives in the Obama administration while serving as director of policy for the Office of Intergovernmental Affairs and Public Engagement. In an interview on “Squawk Box,” Patel said the supply of the two-shot vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna won’t be able to quickly make up the demand created by the J&J pause. This will delay U.S. vaccination efforts, she added. The FDA’s recommendation, issued earlier Tuesday, came after six J&J vaccine recipients in the U.S. developed rare and severe blood-clotting issues. In a tweet, the U.S. regulator said it’s action was being taken “out of an abundance of caution.”
COVID-19 not the sole cause of excess U.S. deaths in 2020 By the year 2017, the United States was already suffering more excess deaths and more life years lost each year than those associated with the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, according to research from demographers Samuel Preston of the University of Pennsylvania and Yana Vierboom of the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research. In 2017, the United States suffered an estimated 401,000 total excess deaths, those beyond the “normal” number of deaths expected to have occurred. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports 376,504 deaths related to COVID-19 in 2020. “We do not want to diminish the tremendous losses due to COVID-19 in the U.S. and elsewhere,” says Vierboom, a postdoctoral research scientist in Max Planck’s Laboratory of Population Health. “It’s just a helpful tool to put the U.S. mortality disadvantage into perspective.” The researchers published their findings in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. “It is not commonly recognized how far we have fallen behind our European counterparts in mortality and survival,” says Preston, a professor in Penn’s Department of Sociology. “A notable U.S. disadvantage in 2000 has ballooned in the course of the 21st century.”
Questions of The Day!
Hi RSB & SuperD
Thank you for your work in helping us reclaim our health freedom! Y’all are awesome! Just wondering what you can suggest for an overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism), I don’t have Graves’ disease (in case you’re wondering). I’m not keen on taking the conventional route ie drugs for managing an overactive thyroid. Thanks!!
I’m planning on starting with the silver-aloe-probiotic protocol you promote, but I have a few questions because I want to do it as correctly and effectively as possible:
1. If I usually wake up and have black coffee (NOT sweetened) first thing in the morning, should I do my first silver/aloe dose 30-45 minutes before the coffee? Or should I avoid the coffee altogether?
2. Do you recommend a specific diet while doing this protocol?
3. I’ve read a bunch about bad gut bacteria protecting itself in biofilms. Will this protocol deal with that also, or do I need to take something to assist in biofilm breakdown?
Low fat diets decrease testosterone levels in men A new study conducted at the University of Worcester and published in the Journal of Steroid Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, has found low-fat diets decrease men’s testosterone levels by 10-15%. Optimal testosterone levels are critical to men’s health. Low testosterone levels are linked to a higher risk of heart disease, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s disease. Healthy testosterone levels are also key for men’s athletic performance, mental health, and sexual health. Since the 1970s, there has been a decrease in men’s average testosterone levels and rates of hypogonadism (medically low testosterone) have been increasing. Low risk dietary strategies could be a useful treatment for low testosterone. The study was a systematic review and meta-analysis, which combined together the results of six well-controlled studies with a total of 206 participants. These studies first put men on a high fat diet (40% fat), and then transferred them to a low fat diet (20% fat), and found their testosterone levels decreased by 10-15% on average. Particularly bad were vegetarian low fat diets causing decreases in testosterone up to 26%.
Special Guest – Dr. Peter Breggin
Peter R. Breggin MD is a Harvard-trained psychiatrist and former Consultant at NIMH who has been called “The Conscience of Psychiatry” for his many decades of successful efforts to reform the mental health field. His work provides the foundation for modern criticism of psychiatric diagnoses and drugs, and leads the way in promoting more caring and effective therapies. His research and educational projects have brought about major changes in the FDA-approved Full Prescribing Information or labels for dozens of antipsychotic and antidepressant drugs. He continues to education the public and professions about the tragic psychiatric drugging of America’s children.
Dr. Breggin has taught at many universities and has a private practice of psychiatry in Ithaca, New York.
Dr. Breggin has authored dozens of scientific articles and more than twenty books, including medical books and the bestsellers Toxic Psychiatry and Talking Back to Prozac. Two more recent books are Medication Madness: The Role of Psychiatric Drugs in Cases of Violence, Suicide and Crime and Psychiatric Drug Withdrawal: A Guide for Prescribers, Therapists, Patients and their Families. His most recent book is Guilt, Shame and Anxiety: Understanding and Overcoming Negative Emotions.
As a medical-legal expert, Dr. Breggin has unprecedented and unique knowledge about how the pharmaceutical industry too often commits fraud in researching and marketing psychiatric drugs. He has testified many times in malpractice, product liability and criminal cases, often in relation to adverse drug effects and more occasionally electroshock and psychosurgery. A list of his trial testimony since 1985 is contained in the last section of his Resume.
Dr. Breggin has also been invited many times to testify before federal agencies and the U.S. Congress, and he has been an expert on psychiatry drug adverse effects for the Federal Aviation Agency (FAA). He has also testified many times at FDA hearings.From Time to the New York Times, his work has been cited innumerable times in worldwide media. He has appeared hundreds of times on TV from Oprah, 60 Minutes, 20/20, Larry King Live, and Good Morning America to the O’Reilly Factor and Doug Kennedy on the Fox News Channel.
Dr. Breggin’s earliest reform efforts in the 1970s brought an almost complete stop to lobotomy and psychosurgery in the Western World and in the 1990s prevented a eugenic federal project at the nation’s inner city children. Both his anti-lobotomy and anti-eugenics campaigns are described in his book coauthored with his wife Ginger, The War Against Children of Color, as well as in many scientific articles.
Peter R. Breggin M.D. conducts a private practice of psychiatry in Ithaca , New York , where he treats adults, couples, and families with children. He also does consultations in the field of clinical psychopharmacology and often acts as a medical expert in criminal, malpractice and product liability suits. Before moving to Ithaca in November 2002 he was in practice for nearly thirty-five years in Washington , DC and Bethesda , Maryland . He has written dozens of scientific articles and many professional books, including Medication Madness: The Role of Psychiatric Drugs in Cases of Violence, Suicide and Crime (2008), and is on the editorial board of several journals.
In 2010 Dr. Breggin and his wife Ginger formed a new organization that continues their emphasis on bringing professional and laypersons together to share their concerns about the hazards of contemporary biological psychiatry while promoting more caring and empathic approaches to personal conflict and suffering.
Many of Dr. Breggin’s accomplishments as a reformer are documented in detail in The Conscience of Psychiatry: The Reform Work of Peter R. Breggin, M.D. (2009). This biographical tribute to Dr. Breggin’s work draws on more than half-a-century of media and more than 70 special contributions from his colleagues, as well as many other sources.
Nuremberg Code Against Nazi Experiments Should Stop Further COVID-19 Vaccinations This report examines COVID-19 vaccinations in light of the principles established by the Nuremberg Code, an ethical standard for scientific research developed by the judges in the Nazi War Crimes Trials after World War II. The Nuremberg Code (1949) (wayne.edu) The Kaimowitz Trial In 1972, I was the lead medical and psychiatric expert in a three-judge trial called Kaimowitz v. Department of Mental Health that stopped lobotomy and psychosurgery (psychiatric brain mutilation) from being imposed on state mental hospital patients in Michigan, even if the inmates said that they consented. The injunction was brought by attorney Gabe Kaimowitz on behalf of John Doe and the Medical Committee for Human Rights. The judges’ decision led to the termination of all psychiatric surgery in state and federal facilities in the United States. It became the first of many victories in my campaign to stop the worldwide resurgence of psychiatric brain mutilation. The three judges determined that inmates of a highly authoritarian, oppressive institution are in no position to freely give consent to dangerous experiments because of their demoralizing circumstances and the inherent threat of coercion, retaliation, pressure, and threats. These legal and moral principles are embedded in the Nuremberg Code and derived from the experiences of inmates of Nazi concentration and extermination camps who supposedly volunteered for dangerous experiments. My testimony prepared the way for the judges by describing the history and current conditions of state mental hospitals enabling them to compare them to concentration and extermination camps. It also demonstrated that the surgery was indeed mutilating to the brain and destructive to all higher mental and emotional functions.
Dr. Fauci’s COVID-19 Treachery This report documents in detail how Dr. Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), has been the major force behind a series of research activities and other government actions that enabled the Chinese Communist Party to create lethal SARScoronaviruses,leading to the release of SARS–CoV–2from the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Fauci continues to cover for the Chineseand for himself, denying the origin of SARS–CoV–2, and delaying and thwarting worldwideattempts to deal rationally with the pandemic.This report documents with more than 100 linked citations the following activities by Dr. Fauci:(1) Until stopped by President Trump in mid–April 2020, Fauci funded both individual Chinese researchers and the Wuhan Institute as collaboratorswith Americanresearchersin creating lethal coronavirusesfrom harmless bat viruses. This collaboration and direct funding enabled the Chinese Communist Party and its military to make potential bioweapons on their own, including SARS–CoV–2.In April 2020, shortly after our disclosure of theseUS/Chinese collaborations, President Trump canceledfundingfor them. However, Fauci has recently unleashed a deluge of new funding that will almost certainly benefit Chinese scientists at universities and research facilities in this country who have close ties to the Chinese Communist Party.
2021 Liberty Manifesto
To Restore America’s Freedom
By Peter R. Breggin MD and Ginger R. Breggin
(1) We, the citizens of the United States of America, who support individual rights and political freedom, must stop “gain of function” viral research now. The creation of Franken-viruses must end. It is suicidal for civilization. SARS-CoV-2 must become the last human-made pandemic virus. Anthony Fauci must be stopped from funding this research with our taxpayer dollars through his National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).
(2) We must stop Fauci from funding Chinese scientists, the Wuhan Institute of Virology, and the Chinese Communist Party in their collaborative research with U.S. scientists developing deadly coronaviruses suitable for use as biological weapons. That is how SARS-CoV-2 was made at the Wuhan Institute. Based on our public disclosures, President Trump stopped Fauci from funding this catastrophic research with Communist China but President Biden quickly reinstated it. Biden/Fauci are now again funding Chinese Communist Party biowarfare research.
(3) We must stop our government from preventing physicians from using FDA-approved treatments that are inexpensive, safe, and effective for the early successful treatment of COVID-19. Anthony Fauci, NIH, the CDC, and the FDA must be stopped from interfering with the physician-patient relationship and informed consent by their illegally preventing the use of FDA-approved treatments such as hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin.
(4) We must make sure that COVID-19 becomes the last shutdown ever for America and we must liberate America now. The U.S. Constitution and the Bill Rights cannot be discarded in an emergency but must instead be strengthened. Public Health concerns cannot be used to override basic human rights and to destroy America as a democratic republic.
(5) We must stop partnering with the Chinese Communist Party and the global predator billionaires and giant international corporations. The wealthy predatory global elite in America and China grow ever more rich and powerful through COVID-19. The United States of America must once again become an independent, patriotic, and largely self-sufficient nation in this worldwide quagmire of progressivism, Chinese Communism, and predatory capitalism.
(6) The progressive leftwing of America now monopolizes nearly every influential private and public institution from the media, publishing, and Hollywood to the education and the scientific establishments. They have done this by systematically excluding all Americans with views that differ from theirs. In the true spirit of freedom and independence, we must build our own institutions and, in the case of giant tech and media companies, we must break up monopolies that control and manipulate the flow of information in our society.
(7) All freedom-loving people must continue to work together to develop an overwhelming grassroots movement along with our own educational system, publishers, media, freedom-based corporations, and culture. We need to continue unifying around individual rights and liberty, while divorcing ourselves from the global predators who have imposed the lockdowns upon us.
