Talk about misinformation!

"The phenomenon, unfolding largely on social media, escalated this week when President Donald Trump retweeted an alleged video about an anti-malaria drug being a cure for the virus and it was revealed that Russian intelligence is spreading disinformation about the crisis through English-language websites."

First the retweet came from Donald Trump Jr., not President Trump.

Second, the video talked about a TREATMENT not a cure. And it came from AMERICAN doctors, based on AMERICAN studies. According to the video, hydroxychloroquine used in combination with other drugs is most effective when used early.

Yes "Misinformation on coronavirus is proving highly contagious" - but the misinformation comes from writers like David Klepper of the AP and printed in the GCDN.

As I read your comment I think it just

Might be true that alien DNA is put in by doctors at the moment of breeding.

Carlos Ponce

Bill, that information is not on the video. And you can readily identify those with alien DNA - they vote Liberal.

Another day, another Crazy Carlos comment to correct....

Talk about misinformation!

"Nobody needs to get sick. This virus has a cure - it is called hydroxychloroquine, I have treated over 350 patients and not had one death,"

“You don’t need masks, there is a cure.”

Did you even watch the video you're peddling?

On July 24th she tweeted, "The fear, the sickness, the deaths is so senseless and unnecessary. Covid19 has a cure..."

Carlos Ponce

"the video talked about a TREATMENT not a cure" is what I posted. The doctor used the word cure but it was actually a treatment. Her use of "cure" most likely was hyperbolic.

"Crazy Carlos"? I'll remember that next time you badmouth the president for using monikers.

Bailey Jones

OK, now you're just lying.

Carlos Ponce

Lying about what? That she should have used the word "treatment" not cure? That's why I posted "not a cure". If you saw the video you would notice her passion for what she was saying, hence the words she used were hyperbolic in nature. Is that a lie?

Bailey Jones

Ummm - yes, Carlos, that's a lie. Science doesn't allow "exaggeration". You taught math, 1 + 1 = 5: is that false, or an "exaggeration"? What else is she exaggerating, Carlos? 350 patients - truth, lie or "exaggeration"? Hasn't lost a patient - truth, lie or "exaggeration"? Erectile dysfunction caused by dream sex with chupacabras - truth, lie or "exaggeration"? How can you possibly tell - she's presented no research, no data, no case files, nothing, nada, zilch. And yet, you and your president are "very impressed with her" and see this ridiculousness as scientific evidence.

Can you not see how ignorant this makes you sound? Are you really so clueless that you can't see that every comment you make trying to twist this nonsense into a winning narrative makes you, your president, and conservatives in general, just look that much stupider?

It's a rhetorical question, no need to answer. Even Trumpy McDingbat had enough sense to walk away from this one.

Carlos Ponce

"350 patients - truth, lie or "exaggeration"? It is verifiable. The group think medicos say that information is anecdotal.

Governor Mike DeWine of Ohio rescinded his block of the use of hydroxychloroquine in his state.

Governor Mike DeWine @GovMikeDeWine

Therefore, I am asking the @OhioRxBoard to halt their new rule prohibiting the selling or dispensing of hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine for the treatment or prevention of COVID-19.

Governor Mike DeWine @GovMikeDeWine

I agree with the statement from Dr. Steven Hahn, Commissioner of @US_FDA, that the decision about prescribing hydroxychloroquine to treat #COVID19 should be between a doctor and a patient.

Looks like the "miracle cure" did not work out so well for Herman Cain.

Carlos Ponce

What was his treatment? The only thing disclosed online was "oxygen treatment".

"At the time of publication, it’s not known if Cain was given hydroxychloroquine as part of his COVID-19 treatment. His social media sites often posted support for the medication, but the combination of medications being given to him while he was hospitalized has not been released. His website has only said that he was taking medications, but did not list which ones."

What is sad is that so many seem to NOT be able to think and reason on their own. CDC, Fauci and the MSM like GCDN have printed bogus information for a very long time and yet they are not be shut down like well respected Doctors are. Dr. Armstrong over the TC kept 39 patients out of the hospital because he used what Fauci and CDC says is not to be used. Many Doctors have been using the mix of drugs and people are get well fast. I feel for all who just believe what the MSM tells them....

Diane Turski

"Half human reptilians" working in government would explain a lot about the past three years of the Trump administration.

Gary Miller

MSM and democrats hate HDC because they think more deaths helps their quest for voters. One report I saw was that 8,000 patients 50 or older were studied from infection to recovery. HDC was administered and the death rate was cut in half compared with a different 8,000 50 and older patients. The 8,000 in the study group had no adverse side effects. No meaning none at all, "0". Where the treatment started within two days of first symthems the death rate was cut to less than 20 %. It is not a cure but is a very helpful treatment.

Bailey Jones

I'd love to see this study, Gary, because the ones I've seen say just the opposite.
