World's 11 most powerful NATURAL ANTIBIOTICS that won't kill your good gut bacteria

Image: World’s 11 most powerful NATURAL ANTIBIOTICS that won’t kill your good gut bacteria

(Natural News) The main reason the majority of Americans do not believe in taking supplements and natural herbs regularly hinges on their faith in their medical doctor’s advice, whose learning comes from colleges funded by Big Pharma, that made sure nutrition education was removed from “medicine” curriculum almost entirely, over a century ago. It’s all part of the Hidden History of Medicine, in a free download from Natural News.

Yet, your first line of defense against infections and illnesses is boosting your own immune system with natural remedies and indigenous cures. People need to stay on their game at all times and super-boost their immune system with Mother Nature’s gifts. You see, medical doctors don’t make any money if you stay healthy, for the most part, or even if you get sick, and then take natural antibiotics for healing, since they’re not patentable and they don’t make you sicker by just covering up symptoms, like prescription medications do. There’s the rub.

The worst part about prescription antibiotics is they kill your good gut bacteria, known as flora. Your gut is a very balanced microbiome, if you eat clean food mostly and supplement, where the good gut bacteria consists of about 85%, and the bad bacteria at around 15%. When a medical doctor’s patient takes antibiotics, it ALL gets wiped out. If the patient happens to be suffering from a viral infection instead, the doctor just sets up the patient for a very dangerous outcome, by decimating the immune system’s biological “seat.”

That’s why it’s important to stock up on natural remedies and natural antibiotics. They are not expensive, especially compared to medical bills (and getting sicker from not healing in the first place). Plus, they are preventative medicine to keep you from getting sick in the first place.

Here are the world’s 11 most powerful natural antibiotics that medical doctors are never allowed to discuss as treatment or preventative medicine

#1. Garlic

#2. Apple cider vinegar

#3. Ginger

#4. Horseradish root

#5. Onion

#6. Habanero peppers

#7. Oregano oil

#8. Turmeric

#9. Echinacea (Herb)

#10. Raw honey

#11. Colloidal Silver

Garlic cloves are easy to find and amazing for the human immune system, and they serve as an antiseptic, antibacterial, and antifungal agent. Garlic contains a compound called allicin that’s a potent antibiotic that was used by the Egyptians, Romans, Greeks and ancient Chinese to combat sicknesses, including the common cold. Allicin is released when the garlic cloves are crushed or chewed.

Colloidal silver is even more effective than traditional antibiotics, and that’s why Big Pharma has viciously attacked it, saying it turns people silver (some guy drank whole bottles of it all day once). Egyptians, Romans, and Greeks used silver over a millennium ago for various illnesses and to fight infections, and it doesn’t harm your liver or kidneys, like prescription antibiotics can.

Ever heard of superbugs? They are infections people often get in hospitals when they have open wounds and hygiene leaves something to be desired. Apple cider vinegar, also known as ACV, eradicates methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (staph infection) and resistant Escherichia coli (E-coli). These are infections that can spread rapidly and kill people. Often times, medical doctors sling antibiotics at them, which can add to the high morbidity rates.

ACV penetrates microbial cell membranes, significantly reducing their ability to spread and infect the human body. ACV is made from alcoholic fermentation of apples, sugar, and yeast, and the acetic acid has potent antimicrobial properties (according to scientific studies published by NIH) and high potency for defeating antibiotic-resistant microbes. That’s why Big Pharma will NOT tell you about ACV when you’re in the hospital dying from superbug infections. Can you say allopathic population control without coughing into your Covid mask?

Oil of oregano is one of nature’s most powerful medicines. One of the most potent remedies in the world, oregano oil beats down viruses and knocks back allergies to pollen. Produced from the perennial herb oregano, the oil is loaded with antioxidants that annihilate the free radicals that cause cancer. Pharmaceutical companies wish they could patent it.

Tune your internet dial to NaturalMedicine.news for more tips on how to use natural remedies for preventative medicine and for healing, instead of succumbing to Big Pharma for prescription antibiotics that cover up symptoms to deeper rooted ailments.

The Tenpenny Files: Dr. Sherri Tenpenny discusses key principles of osteopathic medicine – Brighteon.TV

Image: The Tenpenny Files: Dr. Sherri Tenpenny discusses key principles of osteopathic medicine – Brighteon.TV

(Natural News) Dr. Sherri Tenpenny kicked off the inaugural episode of her Brighteon.TV program “The Tenpenny Files” by discussing the key principles of osteopathic medicine.

The osteopathic medical doctor from Cleveland, Ohio pointed out that osteopathic medicine has principles that set it apart from other branches of medicine.

“The first principle of osteopathic medicine is that the body functions as a unit and no parts function independently. The abnormalities in the structure and function are already adversely affecting the whole,” she began.

“In allopathic medicine, we have divided the body up into parts. And we see each of these parts as individuals. And that’s why sometimes patients end up with seeing all these different doctors. They end up with all these different medications from different people – kind of the left hand doesn’t always know what the right hand is doing. And they end up with medications that may be contradictory to each other.”

The second principle of osteopathy, according to Tenpenny, is that that the body has the inherent ability to heal itself and maintain its health when given the appropriate building blocks.

“It’s an ‘inside out’ phenomenon that it’s what you eat, it’s what you drink. It’s the kind of supplements that you take. It’s the kind of digestive enzymes that you take and how incredibly important is it to know what’s happening inside of your body.”

The third principle, the osteopathic doctor said, is that the structure-function relationship in the body is interrelated. She illustrated this by citing knee pain as an example.

Brighteon.TV

Knee pain caused by a bone-on-bone issue is only true about 10 to 15 percent of the time. This is because bones do not have nerve tissues that are present in the cartilage, the ligaments and the muscles. Bone-on-bone, in this case, means there is dysregulation and other things are causing the inflammation.

Musculoskeletal, circulatory systems play a role in osteopathy

Tenpenny noted that in osteopathic medicine, the key component of health care is the musculoskeletal system – which comprises more than 60 percent of the body mass. Osteopathic physicians refer to the abnormal areas in the musculoskeletal system in the body as somatic dysfunctions which means that things are out of alignment, she added.

Thus, any musculoskeletal problems and pain could either be coming from somewhere else, or it can be something that needs to be treated from a different perspective instead of immediately having surgery. She reiterated that surgery should be an option of the last choice after trying everything else first.

Aside from the musculoskeletal system, Tenpenny also mentioned that proper, unimpeded circulation is the key to health. Citing the osteopathic adage “the rule of the artery is supreme,” she explained that the the body needs good circulation to make sure that the internal organs are not deprived of oxygen, nutrients, red blood cells and other things that are carried into the organ systems. A person cannot have healthy organs if they do not have healthy arteries, Tenpenny emphasized.

Sticking to the “inside out” phenomenon she mentioned prior, Tenpenny also said mental, emotional or spiritual problems are causing people to have external manifestations or physical symptoms affecting their physical health. In order to correct those physical problems a person needs to deal with that from a mental, emotional and spiritual perspective first. (Related: Osteopathic manipulative treatment is an effective treatment alternative to obstructive sleep apnea.)

“So, all elements – physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, psychological, environmental, all these elements of diet, sleep and exercise – all of these things need to be taken into consideration to figure out what the patient needs.”

Maryland's Dem state rep pushes bill to require embedded trackers in guns

Image: Maryland’s Dem state rep pushes bill to require embedded trackers in guns

(Natural News) In another affront to the Second Amendment rights of Marylanders, a Democratic state representative in Maryland has pushed a bill seeking to add embedded trackers in firearms.

State congresswoman Pam Queen, a member of the Maryland House of Delegates, filed HB 704 on Feb. 6. Her bill mandated that an “embedded tracker” be added to firearms before they can be transferred in a sale. HB 704 also outlined that the tracking device is to be embedded in such a way that removing it will destroy the firearm’s functionality.

Aside from the tracker, HB 704 also mandated that gun sellers provide “certain information” to the Maryland Department of State Police (MDSP). Moreover, it also required the MDSP to “establish a certain database” of firearm owners in the Old Line State.

If HB 704 becomes law, the said database will contain the names and addresses of parties in the firearm transfer, the firearm’s manufacturer and serial number and the unique information found in the embedded tracker.

“There is a rebuttable presumption that a person who sells, or otherwise transfers, 10 or more firearms within a 30-day period has engaged in a bulk firearm transfer,” Queen’s bill stated. (Related: Are FedEx and UPS tracking gun ownership for Biden White House?)

Larry Keane, senior vice president and general counsel of the National Shooting Sports Federation (NSSF), dismissed the delegate’s proposal in a statement.

“Legislative proposals like this could be laughed off as unserious, just one-off attempts to score political points,” he wrote. “No one in the firearm manufacturing world is laughing, though. This is demonstrative of just how far anti-gun lawmakers will go to eliminate Second Amendment rights – even at the cost of privacy and Constitutional rights of those who lawfully own firearms.”

Brighteon.TV

Keane: HB 704 proposes “sci-fi” technology to track guns

The NSSF executive pointed out that anti-gun lawmakers in Maryland such as Queen are proposing such laws “so government officials could track [firearms’] whereabouts at all times.” Aside from being unconstitutional, the idea behind the law is not even technologically possible.

“The technology doesn’t exist and there’s no foreseeable way to create this sort of reliable embedded tracker that could withstand the pressures and energy created and harnessed by a firearm. This is one of the key technological reasons why authorized-user recognition technology has not been successfully developed,” he wrote.

“What this bill does would be nothing short of state authorities peering into an individual’s gun safe. The state would also know when and where a firearm would be moved – whether that’s for hunting, a day at the range target shooting or when and where an individual is legally carrying a firearm for licensed concealed carry.”

Keane also elaborated on why HB 704 is unconstitutional.

He said that the bill requires gun owners to forfeit their right to privacy protected by the Fourth Amendment since the state, through the MDSP, would automatically collect and store their information in real time. The bill would also put into question the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments, which protect due process, as the government would collect information on Americans who simply exercise their right to keep and bear arms.

Ultimately, Keane noted that Queen’s proposal “would have a chilling effect on the exercise of Second Amendment rights.” He noted: “Marylanders would be less likely to lawfully purchase a firearm to avoid the invasion of privacy.”

According to the NSSF executive, the closest existing technology to what Queen is proposing comes in the form of RFID emitters in firearm stores. He noted, however, that these RFID emitters are used solely as an internal tool to track store inventory.

“No personal information about the consumer purchasing a firearm or ammunition product should be electronically retained or stored by the merchant through the use of an RFID device affixed to the product or its packaging. The simple action of ‘turning off’ the RFID tag coupled with physically ‘taking it off’ the product at the point of sale is essential to ensure consumers’ rights.”

WHO “Abandons Plans for Covid Origin Investigation”. A Perfect Cover-Up?

The Nature Magazine reported that the World Health Organization “abandons plans to investigate Covid origin.”

The World Health Organization (WHO) has quietly shelved the second phase of its much-anticipated scientific investigation into the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic, citing ongoing challenges over attempts to conduct crucial studies in China, Nature has learned.

Interestingly, the WHO abandoned plans for the investigation shortly after Jeremy Farrar, an ally of Bill Gates and a co-conspirator in Dr. Fauci’s email group discussing plans to hide the origins of Covid-19 in 2020, was appointed to be the WHO’s chief scientist. Here’s Jeremy Farrar on the left side of this picture:

Below is the stated reason why the WHO abandoned the investigation: China does not want to provide the investigators with information!

Researchers say they are disappointed that the investigation isn’t going ahead, because understanding how the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 first infected people is important for preventing future outbreaks. But without access to China, there is little that the WHO can do to advance the studies, says Angela Rasmussen, a virologist at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon, Canada. “Their hands are really tied.”

Please appreciate the ridiculousness of the above argument and the gullibility of anyone who would believe such a nonsensical statement:

  • A pathogen was released that killed millions.

  • The country where the pathogen allegedly first appeared does not want investigations.

  • Because of that, investigations are called off.

This makes no sense!

Consider this analogy:

Imagine that a victim was robbed while visiting a particular house. The homeowner, unsurprisingly, does not want to grant investigators access to the premises. Would that be a good reason to call off the investigation? Of course, no! Even if the house where the crime occurred was inaccessible or even burned down, investigators could ask for witnesses, summon cell phone records and text messages, collect recordings from nearby street cameras, and perhaps check nearby pawn shops to see if they sell any goods in question, and so on.

So, why would Jeremy Farrar and the WHO decline to investigate the origin of COVID-19, citing the refusal of China to allow access as the [bogus] reason not to investigate?

The explanation is quite apparent: the World Health Organization does NOT want us to know the origin of Covid-19. Had the WHO been interested, it could accomplish quite a bit without involving China. WHO could:

  • Ask independent geneticists why Sars-Cov-2 has several genetic inserts that fold to form an analog of HIV gp120 protein, as described in Jan 2020 by a Pradhan et al. “uncanny similarity” article.

  • Ask for any and all correspondence that led to a withdrawal of the above article on a SUNDAY two days later.

  • Ask for any and all documentation from DARPA, EcoHealth Alliance, NIH, and Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation related to EcoHealth Alliance, which described SARS-Cov-2 in its 2018 DEFUSE proposal.

  • Ask independent geneticists why the Sars-Cov-2 genome contains a reverse complement to a nucleotide sequence CTCCTCGGCGGGCACGTAG from Moderna cancer patent 9,587,003.

  • Ask UNC virologist Ralph Baric, and the University of North Carolina, described by the DEFUSE proposal as the person to develop experimental viruses, for any and all correspondence starting from a few years ago.

It would help if the WHO could ask why the DEFUSE proposal contains the blueprint for designing a perfect ACE2-targeting mechanism binding to human lungs and a furin cleavage site conferring infectiousness and pathogenicity:

It would be good to ask EcoHealth’s Dr. Peter Daszak and Dr. Ralph Baric what was the reason to add HIV inserts to their experimental virus to infect immune cells via DC-SIGN (a mechanism independent of ACE2), described in the 2018 DEFUSE proposal here:

Infecting cells expressing DC-SIGN is what the HIV inserts of Sars-Cov-2 do, just like HIV itself, and it is the key to Covid-19 and Covid vaccine-mediated immune suppression.

It would also be good to ask how Dr. Fauci, on Feb 4, 2020, in his email exchange with Dr. Farrar and Francis Collins, knew that Sars-Cov-2 was grown in humanized ACE2 transgenic mice:

So, three years ago, in 2020, Fauci and Farrar had a pretty good idea of how Sars-Cov-2 evolved in transgenic mice, just as the DEFUSE proposal described.

The same Jeremy Farrar, also on Feb 4, 2020, knew full well about the reasons why Sars-Cov-2 had a “furin cleavage site,” as he forwarded an email to Fauci asking it to be kept in secret:

Perhaps Mr. Farrar can explain why he “forgot” all his 2020 discussions about engineered features of Sars-Cov-2 and instead decided to “stop investigations of Covid origin” in 2023 once he was appointed chief UN scientist.

There are some things that we know about Sars-Cov-2:

  • Sars-Cov-2 was lab engineered

  • It was designed to be a pandemic pathogen inducing immune suppression in the population and being vaccine-resistant (with the spike-based vaccine inducing same immune suppression).

  • Extensive preparations for its release were undertaken in 2019. Examples include unexplained NIH work on a “novel coronavirus vaccine” in July 2019, a strangely specific pandemic preparedness exercise “Event 201” in Oct 2019, and more.

  • In a moment of unlikely serendipity, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation bought shares in an obscure startup BioNTech in September 2019. BioNTech, to that date, never produced any vaccine but was destined to become a multibillion “Covid vaccine manufacturer,” making the famous Pfizer vaccine. Such a lucky investment produced a 50-fold financial windfall for Bill.

There are some things that we do not yet know with any certainty. We do not know:

  • Who exactly authorized its release?

  • When was Sars-Cov-2 released?

  • Where was it released? (could be Wuhan but far from certain)

  • What was the objective of its developers and funders?

While we have some “pieces of the puzzle,” we do not have all of them, and they do not yet give us a perfect, day-by-day timeline. Be skeptical of claims about Sars-Cov-2 and its origin that are too specific without an extraordinary amount of data confirming such claims.

In addition, there seems to be a concerted effort to lay all blame on China and the Wuhan lab. While China likely played a role in the pandemic, it did not cause it unilaterally, and possibly was taken advantage of.

We are in the fifth calendar year of a pandemic. All countries experienced excess mortality. In many places, excess mortality is continuing, baffling doctors and puzzling authorities.

Had we known the names and intentions of persons who guided the development of Sars-Cov-2, we would be better equipped to start working on countermeasures that work.

In addition, pandemic pathogens can be created (or adapted from animals to humans) in a moderately expensive lab employing only one or two talented virologists.

If this pandemic does not result in honest investigations, fair trials, and fitting punishments, another pandemic will be waiting just around the corner.

In a way, I am glad that the WHO is not “investigating” the origin of Covid-19. It would never be honest with us anyway.

I am not holding my breath waiting for “honest investigations,” but we cannot lose hope, right?

What do you think? Will the perpetrators be punished? Or was Covid-19 a perfect crime?

Amnesty for an Apology? COVID Dictators Looking for Way Out

  • Draconian COVID measures ruined the lives of millions of lower- and middle-class Americans while lining the pockets of the liberal cabal, and those who spoke the truth were punished rather than lauded for their reason

  • Now, the tide is starting to shift. Recent polling shows 49% of Americans believe the COVID shots may be responsible for the massive rise in sudden deaths and 28% say they know someone they believe was killed by the shots

  • In early November 2022, The Atlantic published an article by Brown University economist Emily Oster, who suggested COVID dictators be granted “amnesty” for their mistaken beliefs about COVID-19. It failed miserably, as just about everyone saw through her ill-conceived arguments

  • January 30, 2023, medical student Kevin Bass followed in Oster’s footsteps, penning an opinion piece for Newsweek in which he urges the scientific community to “admit we were wrong about COVID and it cost lives”

  • Communications analysts agree Bass’ essay is another manipulative effort to overcome public distrust in authorities

In The Hill segment above, Batya Ungar-Sargon reviews how draconian COVID measures ruined the lives of millions of lower- and middle-class Americans while lining the pockets of the liberal cabal. Indeed, the cost of the COVID measures were definitely not born equally by all. Moreover, those who spoke the truth were punished rather than lauded for their reason.

Now, the tide is starting to shift. Recent polling shows 49% of Americans believe the COVID shots may be responsible for the massive rise in sudden deaths and 28% say they know someone they believe was killed by the shots.

With half the country now questioning the shots, the propagandists surely have their work cut out for them. Perhaps some of them are realizing it’s now a losing battle and they need an escape plan, a new narrative to salvage what little public trust is left.

Back in early November 2022, The Atlantic published an article by Brown University economist Emily Oster,

who suggested COVID dictators be granted “amnesty” for their mistaken beliefs about COVID-19. “We need to forgive one another for what we did and said when we were in the dark about COVID,” she wrote. Her arguments were so ill-conceived, most of those who read it answered with colorful variations of “No a chance.”

January 30, 2023, medical student Kevin Bass followed in Oster’s footsteps, penning an opinion piece for Newsweek in which he urges the scientific community to “admit we were wrong about COVID and it cost lives”:

“I staunchly supported the efforts of the public health authorities when it came to COVID-19. I believed that the authorities responded to the largest public health crisis of our lives with compassion, diligence, and scientific expertise. I was with them when they called for lockdowns, vaccines, and boosters. I was wrong. We in the scientific community were wrong. And it cost lives.

I can see now that the scientific community from the CDC to the WHO to the FDA and their representatives, repeatedly overstated the evidence and misled the public about its own views and policies, including on natural vs. artificial immunity, school closures and disease transmission, aerosol spread, mask mandates, and vaccine effectiveness and safety, especially among the young.

All of these were scientific mistakes at the time, not in hindsight … Our emotional response and ingrained partisanship prevented us from seeing the full impact of our actions on the people we are supposed to serve.

We systematically minimized the downsides of the interventions we imposed — imposed without the input, consent, and recognition of those forced to live with them. In so doing, we violated the autonomy of those who would be most negatively impacted by our policies: the poor, the working class, small business owners, Blacks and Latinos, and children …

Most of us did not speak up in support of alternative views, and many of us tried to suppress them … But the scorn that we laid on them was a disaster for public trust in the pandemic response.”

February 4, 2023, Fox News host Tucker Carlson invited Bass onto his show to discuss his apparently newfound humility. But while Carlson and a majority of Bass’ Twitter followers applauded his “honesty,” many scientists and doctors who have been defamed, censored and fired for speaking truth right from the start are none too impressed.

Curiously, Bass seems to have predicted trouble, as he wiped his Twitter account clean three days before his Newsweek piece was published.

Could one potential reason for wiping his Twitter history be that it revealed some of his long-held stances on even more unpopular topics than lockdowns and the COVID jabs? For example, Bass is apparently a fan of eugenics, as evidenced in a couple of tweets highlighted by Dr. Meryl Nass:

Paul E. Alexander, a Canadian health researcher and former Trump administration official at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, wrote a scathing critique

of Bass’ performance on Tucker Carlson’s show, referring to him as a spineless grifter trying to separate himself from the COVID tyrants as proof of their falsehoods mounts.

“This Bass guy is delusional to compare himself to … esteemed real warriors and fighters,” Alexander writes. “The frauds, the grifters, benefitted on the upside joining in on the lockdown lunacy and being incentivized and making money, now wanting to benefit on the downside too. Filth …

This is the ultimate grifter, ultimate, grifting off of fame, this Bass guy, was never interested in the harms and pain and suffering from the lockdown lunacy and the vaccines, now stealing air time after having blood on his hands, his and his buddies, his doctor buddies and academic scientists …

[F]or as you see, Kev was all too happy and joined in, and he wrote this, when Atlas, Kulldorff, Breggin, me, Jeff Tucker, McCullough, Ladapo, Wolf, Risch and us freedom fighters, us contrarians, us skeptics, all of us, were scorned and smeared and cancelled, income taken etc. …”

Indeed, while Bass now presents himself as a courageous truth teller, he’s still scornful of the original truth tellers — the very ones he admitted were correct from the start and were unfairly castigated and excluded from the decision-making process. 

As recently as February 4, 2023, Bass blew them off en masse as being “no good.” His dismissal of the Stockholm conference as a whole — during which scientists and doctors from around the world reviewed the very mistakes he admitted to in his Newsweek “apology” — also raises questions about his sincerity.

Dr. Pierre Kory — who got fired for standing firm on early treatment for COVID-19 and now treats post-jab injuries and long-COVID in private practice — initially welcomed Bass’ apology, but quickly changed his mind after reading a more in-depth analysis by Substack author, A Midwestern Doctor. Kory writes:

“Although I have been describing myself of late as an ‘expert’ in spotting COVID Disinformation and propaganda tactics, this week I discovered that I, along with many others, got fooled by the above Newsweek article, naively thinking it as representative of the genuine reflecting of a bold medical student …

A Midwestern Doctor saw the article for exactly what is was — yet another lame attempt at a ‘plea for amnesty’ by those in power … The decision to use a medical student as an author of this ‘Oster 2.0’ article was ingenious and was one way in which I got suckered by it.

The other reason is that, the tactics used in the article were much more nuanced than in Oster’s piece and thus required a close reading, especially to the actual words/language used and the intent behind their use …

If you are like me and thought Newsweek’s decision to publish an article like that was a genuine reflection of changing sentiment among not only the scientific community but also political and industry leadership, then please read [A Midwestern Doctor’s] essay. It wasn’t. At all. We are still getting played, but, at the same time, I think the decision to publish that article shows they are getting desperate.”

In his February 3, 2023, analysis, A Midwestern Doctor wrote:

“In Oster’s plea for amnesty, I felt she was providing an excellent example of a pseudo-apology

— she ‘asked for forgiveness’ but simultaneously refused to admit she was in any way at fault for any of her previous actions, and used a variety of linguistic constructs to try to both have her cake and eat it too …

I believe the goal of [Bass’] piece is to test out soundbites that could be used to address the major issues that the medical establishment has created for itself as a result of how it handled COVID-19 …

Because of how much things have changed in the last three months, we are now in the position to ask for a lot more than before, which is why a much more candid apology is being given. However, since there is a lot more nuance here than in Oster’s (as this one attempts to be more persuasive), I felt compelled to place Oster 2.0 under a microscope.”

The Substack author then goes on to list a series of screenshots from Bass’ article with commentary in red. To start off, in saying “I was wrong. Wein the scientific community were wrong. And it cost lives,” Bass explicitly gave Oster’s critics what they asked for. A direct admission that they were wrong.

He also addressed a central objection to Oster’s non-apology by stating that “All of these were scientific mistakes at the time, not in hindsight.” In sharp contrast, Oster argued that COVID tyrants ought to be forgiven because they didn’t know any better; at the time, nobody knew what was best and everyone was basically just guessing. This argument was one of the most egregious lies in Oster’s piece, and Bass wisely avoids making the same mistake.

Thirdly, Bass admits that the errors committed by the scientific community continue to this day. By addressing these three issues, it almost seems like Bass’ apology was customized to correct Oster’s utterly failed attempt to appease those wronged. Importantly, however, Bass does not specify how erroneous COVID policies killed “thousands if not millions” of people, thereby side-stepping the elephant in the room that is the COVID jabs.

The following section was highlighted by A Midwestern Doctor as one of the central passages that make him doubt Bass’ sincerity:

“This specific passage is why I do not believe this is a genuine apology; rather, it’s a forced apology and an attempt to minimize the losses of the vaccine pushers who have discredited themselves to the general public.

Throughout this essay, he attempts to say we had ‘valid concerns’ (that I must emphasize were not political in nature) but nonetheless, in a backhanded way dismisses all the actual objections (e.g., the alleged ‘conspiracy theories’ that all proved themselves true).

Similarly, to help people who have been injured by their vaccine, I have been forced into the very ‘cottage industry’ he lambasts. This is not my preferred ‘cottage industry’ to be in.

Due to the political nature of the subject, you take on a lot of professional risk as a physician if you try to treat these injuries. Everyone I’ve talked to says the same thing: we’ve been forced to do it because the medical profession is doing nothing to help these victims (other than to gaslight them), and they really need help … [L]et’s look at the actual reason I believe this Newsweek article was written:

… [T]here are a lot of signs that because of COVID-19, general vaccine use is beginning to drop globally. This is completely unacceptable to the pharmaceutical industry and medical establishment (as it will cost them a lot of money and create a control group that allows the public to recognize the harm of vaccination …)

Because of this drop, I am beginning to see pleas essentially stating that ‘we are sorry we messed up here, but please trust us on the other vaccines.’ I do not believe they should be allowed to have their cake and eat it here …

[I]f you believe in vaccination, then you must also believe in natural immunity. However, that doesn’t sell products, so a lot of rationalizations must be made to only permit vaccination. As we have seen throughout the pandemic, natural immunity to COVID-19 is vastly superior to vaccine immunity (even though earlier in the pandemic we were repeatedly told the opposite by every healthcare authority).

More importantly, developing natural immunity is also much safer. This is especially true if you use reasonable measures to mitigate the severity of the infection so that it can be cleared up and full immunity develops naturally.

If we want to move forward, the medical community must be willing to recognize that their rules on viral infections are beliefs that need to be critically re-evaluated …

If you look at this article within the context of Oster’s previous plea and its response (both of these articles are essentially trying to do the same thing), I believe a strong case can be made that these were tests to see what narrative needs to be pivoted to.

Likewise, Germany’s minister of health (and a well-credentialed scientist) finally made a limited apology

for the disastrous policies he pushed on the German people without acknowledging the worst mistakes while simultaneously shifting the blame for his decisions to unnamed scientists who gave him bad advice …

In my own opinion, if these people are actually sorry for what they did to us, they would be willing to relinquish some of their power so it could not happen again, and I believe moving forward it is critical for us to hold them to that. Anything less should not be considered acceptable for them to be granted amnesty.”

ZeroHedge weighed in on Bass’ essay, noting that the major problem during the pandemic was:

“… the organized antagonism and censorship against anyone presenting data that was contradictory to the mandate agenda … LA Times … argued that mocking the deaths of ‘anti-vaxxers’ might be necessary and justified. After two years of this type of arrogant nonsense it’s hard to imagine people will be willing to pretend as if all is well … People are still livid.

One cannot help but notice that the timing of the Atlantic’s appeal for passive forgetfulness and now this op-ed mea culpa coincides with the swiftly approaching end of the COVID emergency declarations, amid a growing political backlash to the last two years of meaningless lockdowns and mandates, and Democrats were instrumental in the implementation of both.

A large swath of the population sees one party as the cause of much of their COVID era strife.Perhaps the mainstream media is suddenly realizing that they may have to face some payback for their COVID zealotry?”

While we cannot prove Bass is insincere, since we’re not inside his head, many have pointed out troubling telltale signs that suggest he’s just another pawn of the globalists who engineered this situation for their own benefit and now realize the train is veering off their well-laid tracks.

They’re trying to figure out how to regain people’s trust because, without it, finalizing the implementation of The Great Reset will be far more problematic than if people follow their lead and do as they’re told.

“In the final analysis, Bass does little to rehabilitate public trust in the medical and scientific fields, or ‘authorities’ in general, especially government authorities.”

At the end of the day, the globalists fear losing the power they’ve managed to seize, and they are absolutely not willing to do what A Midwestern Doctor suggests, which is relinquish their powers and put laws in place that will prevent this kind of tyrannical overreach from happening in the future.

So, the best thing that can happen for humanity at this point is for everyone to completely lose faith in and respect for the institutions that further the globalist takeover agenda. They pose a direct threat to mankind as a whole, and they’ve long since lost their right to “benefit of the doubt.” They all need to be dismantled.

In the final analysis, then, Bass does little to rehabilitate public trust in the medical and scientific fields, or “authorities” in general, especially government authorities. His effort is a valiant one, and far more refined than Oster’s, but it still falls short. Bass simply isn’t believable and comes across as two-faced at best when you take into account his other communications, such as comments made on Twitter — and that’s after sanitizing his feed. 

In closing, here are a few select quotes from Sarah Reynolds’ insightful critique of Bass’ op-ed:

“Nowhere in the piece does Bass say the vaccine mandates were unethical or immoral. Not once does he say the lockdowns should not have taken place … ‘I was wrong’ is a sham apology in this case because he never specifies what he was wrong about.

He dips a toe in the waters of taking responsibility, saying, ‘…when Dr. Antony Fauci opposed Trump and became the hero of the public health community, we gave him our support to do and say what he wanted, even when he was wrong.’ Ok, Kevin — but when was he wrong? Which actions did he take that were incorrect? Kevin doesn’t say.

What he does say is horrifying enough though, God help me and us: ‘My motivation for writing this is simple: It’s clear to me that for public trust to be restored in science, scientists should publicly discuss what went right and what went wrong during the pandemic, and where we could have done better. Guess how many times the words trust or distrust appear in the piece?

1. “Trump was not remotely perfect, nor were the academic critics of consensus policy. But the scorn that we laid on them was a disaster for public trust in the pandemic response.”

2. (And 3.) “Instead, we have witnessed a massive and ongoing loss of life in America due to distrust of vaccines and the healthcare system … a massive loss of trust in healthcare, science, scientific authorities, and political leaders more broadly.”

4. “… for public trust to be restored in science, scientists should publicly discuss what went right and what went wrong during the pandemic, and where we could have done better.”

5. “Intellectual elitism, credentialism, and classism must end. Restoring trust in public health—and our democracy—depends on it.”

Trust is such a sticky word … It drips guile. It oozes manipulation. As soon as someone says ‘trust me,’ I know it would probably be wise not to …

Last February, almost a year ago now, the Department of Homeland Security issued a call for ‘trusting the authorities’ and literally labelled those who don’t as ‘threat actors seeking to exacerbate societal friction to sow discord and undermine public trust in government institutions.’

Which leads me to my bottom line analysis: the powers that be are Monday morning quarterbacking. Why didn’t people just do what we said and obediently comply? Because they don’t trust us. If they trusted the media, the government, and scientists, they would do what they were told …

Bass is the puppet they’ve sent out to deliver this narrative … [T]he only reason one Monday morning quarterbacks is so that one can win the next game. They want to identify how better to induce compliance for the next pandemic …

The degree of lack of awareness of reality itself that was required to think that this message would work to shift the narrative could be attributed to a few of things — youth, inexperience, low IQ … So GOOD. It means we’re dealing with weakness. All we have to do is be stronger (smarter, more experienced, braver) and we will win. We will continue to win.”
