Minnesota Reverses Course on Hydroxychloroquine, Allows Use for COVID-19 Treatment

The Democrat government in Minnesota has changed course.

Published

on

The state of Minnesota is now accepting the settled science regarding hydroxychloroquine and will no longer ban the use of the medicine to treat and cure COVID-19 in ailing patients.

Democrat Governor Tim Walz had previously issued an executive order to put severe restrictions on the use of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine. He made this declaration not too long after President Trump promoted the substance as a COVID-19 treatment. Cheap Democrat partisanship likely kept a potentially life-saving drug out of the hands of the gravely ill.

“We are pleased that Governor [Tim] Walz lifted his March 27 Executive Order 20-23 restrictions on chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine,” said Twila Brase, president of Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom.

“This is good news for COVID-19 patients. Many physicians across the nation, and various researchers around the world, have found early use of hydroxychloroquine shortens illness, reduces symptoms, and keeps patients out of the hospital and off the ventilator. For many patients, hydroxychloroquine has been a life-saving medication,” she continued.

“Minnesota’s physicians and other prescribers are now free to prescribe hydroxychloroquine without fear of their patients being turned away at the pharmacy. We appreciate the Governor’s decision to make hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine available to COVID-19 patients if their doctors choose to prescribe it,” Brase added.

Hydroxychloroquine became a political hot button after President Trump advertised the drug as a COVID-19 treatment in a tweet:

Dr. Harvey A. Risch, a professor of epidemiology at the Yale School of Public Health, has confirmed that President Trump’s medical advice on hydroxychloroquine is worthwhile.

“Physicians who have been using these medications in the face of widespread skepticism have been truly heroic,” Risch wrote in Newsweek.

Steven Hatfill, a veteran virologist and adjunct assistant professor at the George Washington University Medical Center, has also stated the obvious about hydroxychloroquine’s success in treating COVID-19.

“There are now 53 studies that show positive results of hydroxychloroquine in COVID infections,” Hatfill wrote in RealClearPolitics. “There are 14 global studies that show neutral or negative results — and 10 of them were of patients in very late stages of COVID-19, where no antiviral drug can be expected to have much effect.”

Dr. Scott Jensen, a Republican state senator who has faced professional consequences for rejecting COVID-19 mass hysteria, has taken the governor to task for rejecting the science and embracing mindless partisanship in opposing hydroxychloroquine.

“There’s been absolutely no transparency here,” Jensen said.

“Hydroxychloroquine is one of the most studied drugs in the history of mankind,” Jensen said. “My wife was on hydroxychloroquine for 15 years. It’s been on the World Health Organization’s list of essential medicines for decades. It’s been in play since 1955, the year after I was born,” he added.

Between Democrat governors housing COVID-19 patients in nursing homes and Democrat public officials denying those same patients hydroxychloroquine, they have worsened the pandemic immeasurably and issued death sentences to the most vulnerable.

Billionaire Mike Bloomberg Pays $16 Million in Fines of Black and Hispanic Felons to Enable Them to Vote

Bribery?

Published

on

Billionaire and former New York City Mayor has raised $16 million dollars to pay off outstanding fines of Black and Hispanic felons in Florida, according to reporting from Axios on Tuesday. Florida restricts the voting rights of convicted criminals until they’ve paid off fines levied for their crimes by the criminal justice system.

It appears that Bloomberg’s fine repayment initative was only available to Black and Hispanic felons. Axios reported that to qualify for Bloomberg’s money, applicants had to have outstanding fines of less than $1,500, be already registered to vote, and to be Black or Latino.

White felons need not apply.

The program has reportedly already cleared the fines of 32,000 felons in the state, enabling them to vote in the election. It erases the punitive aspect of the court system’s fines, which were levied in the first place in order to require convicted criminals to personally make amends for their actions.

Bloomberg’s felon bailout giveaway is legally questionable, and Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz has requested that Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody investigate what he’s doing. If he’s paying felons to vote for any one specific candidate, Bloomberg is in violation of campaign finance rules and could be liable to serve jail time .

The right to vote is fundamental to our democracy and no American should be denied that right,” said a Bloomberg spokesperson when asked about the fine repayment initiative. But it doesn’t seem as if the failed Democratic primary candidate is willing to buy back the voting rights of individuals who might be less inclined to vote for Joe Biden in November.

Bloomberg already tried and failed to buy the nomination in the Democratic primary, and now he’s trying to buy the crucial swing state of Florida for Joe Biden. Corrupt oligarchs should not be allowed to abuse the political system with impunity.
