California Just Became The First State To CRIMINALIZE Free Speech Against COVID With New Law

A California Assembly bill that will make it illegal for licensed doctors to disagree with the Covid-19 narrative by mandating the Medical Board of California to punish them has passed the state Senate and is now on its way to the governor’s desk.

In a letter to lawmakers, Physicians for Informed Consent (PIC) strongly opposed the legislation, declaring that it is “anti-doctor, anti-public health, anti-science, and anti-free speech and we urge you to oppose it.” 

The legislation, Assembly Bill 2098, would add a section to the “Business and Professions Code, relating to healing arts.”

As it states, “Existing law provides for the licensure and regulation of physicians and surgeons by the Medical Board of California and the Osteopathic Medical Board of California. Existing law requires the applicable board to take action against any licensed physician and surgeon who is charged with unprofessional conduct, as provided.”

“This bill would designate the dissemination of misinformation or disinformation related to the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, or ‘COVID-19,’ as unprofessional conduct,” reads the legislation. “The bill would also make findings and declarations in this regard.”

The section to be added to the Business and Professions Code reads, “It shall constitute unprofessional conduct for a physician and surgeon to disseminate misinformation or disinformation related to COVID-19, including false or misleading information regarding the nature and risks of the virus, its prevention and treatment; and the development, safety, and effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines.”

According to the bill, “misinformation,” is “false information that is contradicted by contemporary scientific consensus contrary to the standard of care.” The bill defines “disinformation” as “misinformation that the licensee deliberately disseminated with malicious intent or an intent to mislead.”

CNS reports: The bill, which was introduced by Assembly Member Evan Low (D-28th District), would affect all physicians and surgeons “licensed by the Medical Board of California or the Osteopathic Medical Board of California.”

According to Low, who is chairman of the LGBTQ Caucus, “This bill declares that disinformation and promotion of COVID-19 misinformation and disinformation to the public as unprofessional conduct for licensed physicians and surgeons. Under this law, California Medical Boards will be given the tools necessary to bring discipline actions against a licensee. Due to their specialized knowledge and training, licensed physicians possess a high degree of public trust and therefore must be held to account.”

In its March 2022 letter to California lawmakers, Physicians for Informed Consent said, “Without California doctors being free to speak their mind and educate the public, regarding COVID-19 or vaccination or any other controversial topic, no other public health laws will matter as legislators will not be able to obtain knowledge from a breadth of physician and surgeon opinions, and the public will not be able to obtain their doctors’ honest opinion — because doctors who think and act differently from the contemporary “applicable standard of care” will fear losing their medical license.”

“In allegiance to the U.S. Constitution, we oppose AB 2098—and deem it as the worst bill of the 2022 legislative session,” said Dr. Shira Miller, founder and president of the PIC, in the letter. “AB 2098 is anti-doctor, anti-public health, anti-science, and anti-free speech.”

In the letter, Dr. Miller included a copy of a PIC document, “COVID-19 Vaccine Mandates: 20 Scientific Facts That Challenge the Assumptions.” According to the letter, “if AB 2098 becomes law,” then this document produced by PIC which challenges mainstream medical assumptions “may effectively become banned.”

Some of the assumptions the document challenge include:

  1. ASSUMPTION: The COVID-19 vaccines significantly reduce the spread of COVID-19, so high universal vaccination rates will prevent outbreaks and end the pandemic.
  2. ASSUMPTION: The COVID-19 vaccine clinical trial was large enough to show safety in children.
  3. ASSUMPTION: It’s known that COVID-19 vaccines have no long-term side effects.

CNS News contacted the office of Assembly Member Low to ask how he responds to critics who say AB 2098 could violate the free speech of practicing physicians in the State of California. Low’s office did not respond.

The bill, introduced in February, passed the State Assembly in May and passed the California State Senate on Aug. 29. It now awaits Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom’s signature before it officially becomes law.

Just Days After Phasing Out New Gas Cars, California Says “Avoid Charging EVs” Amid Grid Emergency

BY TYLER DURDEN

Shortly after 1800ET [Wednesday], just as Californians begin to head home for the day, the California Independent System Operator issued a level-1 energy emergency alert shortly after tapping all its available power supplies.

Despite earlier warnings to reduce usage, Californians – in all their self-righteous virtue – decided to charge their EV anyway, pushing demand above capacity

 


 

Bear in mind that it is not even in the scheduled Flex Alert period (from 4pm to 9pm PST) yet.

“It’s pretty clear Mother Nature has outrun us,” California Governor Gavin Newsom, who issued an executive order Wednesday to free up emergency power supplies, said during a news conference.

“The reality is we’re living in an age of extremes — extreme heat, extreme drought.”

…and extreme lack of grid preparedness for your state’s virtue-signaling.

*  *  *

[A look back in the day]: As the day went on, California warmed up more than expected and that has prompted California’s grid operator to issue a specific warning of the potential for power shortfalls that could lead to blackouts on Wednesday night.

Officials asked residents to cut back on power use Wednesday between 4 and 9 p.m. as temperatures soar above 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

“This is a manifestation of what CAISO warned folks about back in May, that unless they see voluntary curtailments the grid could become unstable during certain periods of high demand,” said Gary Cunningham, director of market research at risk management firm Tradition Energy.

“In this case it is extreme heat that is causing it, but overall weakness in the supply picture are adding to the issue.”

The heat poses the biggest test to the grid since the summer of 2020, when rolling outages engulfed portions of the state. 

*  *  *

California power grid officials have a sobering warning this week, telling customers to brace for potential blackouts as the state’s grid faces capacity constraints over the Labor Day weekend.

“The top three conservation actions are to set thermostats to 78 degrees or higher, avoid using large appliances and charging electric vehicles, and turn off unnecessary lights. 

Lowering electricity use during that time will ease strain on the system, and prevent more drastic measures, including rotating power outages,” California Independent System Operator (CAISO) told customers. 

California’s grid is projected to exceed 48,000 megawatts next Monday, the highest of the year, as a menacing heatwave will send temperatures across the state 10-20 degrees above normal through next Tuesday.

The fact that CAISO has to ask customers not to charge their EVs during the current heatwave implies the grid is fragile.

If weather or grid conditions worsen, the ISO may issue a series of emergency notifications to access additional resources and prepare market participants and the public for potential energy shortages and the need to conserve,” California’s grid operator warned. 

A surge in EV charging at home could bring down parts of the state’s grid. 

Nuclear is the only answer to decarbonizing a power grid with sustainable power generation. Asia gets it.

Grid operators are concerned by the increasing use of air conditioners, and as the evening rolls around, people plug in their EVs to charge, increasing power demand as supply constraints suggest the state will have years of a chaotic grid, similar to a third world country.

So much for the green energy transition to unreliable renewable solar and wind.

How exactly is the progressive state – which is hellbent on ridding fossil fuel generation from the grid and replacing it with unreliable solar and wind – going to support all the new EVs after lawmakers passed a new measure last week to eliminate all gas-powered vehicles by 2035?

Michelle Svensson and the Sherwoods discuss Big Gov, Big Pharma collusion to ban effective covid treatments

Image: Michelle Svensson and the Sherwoods discuss Big Gov, Big Pharma collusion to ban effective covid treatments

(Natural News) Michelle Svensson, one half of the Resistance Chicks, talked to Drs. Mark and Michelle Sherwood about the conspiracy between Big Government and Big Pharma to bar truly effective treatments. This prohibition, she added, facilitates money being funneled into the pharmaceutical industry.

Svensson, who hosts the Brighteon.TV program “Headline News: The Resistance Chicks” with her sister Leah, sat down with the “SherwoodTV” hosts during the New York City (NYC) leg of Clay Clark’s ReAwaken America Tour.

According to the Sherwoods, governments have instilled fear into people for two years under the guise of the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Vaccines and drugs such as remdesivir were touted as the solution to the pandemic, but they did not address the fear instilled into people. This fear, they claimed, is even more detrimental than the disease itself.

Moreover, this fear of “real evidence” – which turns out to be fake – will take people out of the roads as they buy into the COVID propaganda. (Related: Vaccine-induced “herd immunity” DOES NOT EXIST: German government admits that 95% of omicron cases are in fully vaccinated individuals.)

The “SherwoodTV” hosts added that there are large numbers of people who suffer from complex, chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer and mental illnesses. Conventional medicine practiced by most physicians focuses only on the symptoms. Furthermore, specific prescribed treatments such as drugs or surgical procedures only aim to treat the immediate problem and not the root cause.

“Today, we understand the whole system is flipped,” Mark said. “Doctors are trained by pharmaceutical-driven funds that drive the business.”

Mark revealed to Svensson that he had two big things in mind: Get rid of all self-imposed chronic sicknesses and diseases, and eradicate the overuse of medications.

“I didn’t say medications are bad, but you know, the body doesn’t have a medication deficiency. [We’ve] got to fix the foundational issues and really get to the root of the problem, which is what helps people heal,” he said.

Functional medicine follows holistic approach to treating diseases

Mark shared that he was removed from the traditional medical system as he was getting people well. This led him to establish the Functional Medical Institute (FMI) in Tulsa, Oklahoma with his wife Michelle.

“I opened a clinic where our main mission is to walk people down that pathway of healing,” he said.

According to the FMI website, the clinic “focuses on complete healing instead of disease management, with an emphasis on healing the root cause and preventing disease recurrence. “Our view of health emphasizes the state of the entire being and its ongoing development and continual change,” it added.

The Sherwoods explained to Svensson that functional medicine is still a science-based medical practice, but with an emphasis on the patient instead of the disease. This patient-centered approach allows functional medicine to address the whole person, not just the symptoms of the disease they have.

Functional medicine practitioners, they added, listen to their patients and their stories. They then help their patients to delve into the discovery process, with a view to helping them take ownership and control of their health.

Adhering to the patient-centered approach, medical practitioners then provide treatments based on their patients’ unique needs. For the Sherwoods, they work through seven foundational principles that start with nutrition, exercise and sleep.
