    The large-scale analysis, conducted by Henry Ford Health System, was published Thursday in the peer-reviewed International Journal of Infectious Diseases. The study examined 2,541 patients who had been hospitalized in six hospitals between March 10 and May 2, 2020. More than twenty-six percent (26.4%) of patients who did not receive hydroxychloroquine died. But among those who received hydroxychloroquine, fewer than half that number — 13% — died. More than 90% of the patients received hydroxychloroquine within 48 hours of admission to the hospital. Scientists say giving the drug early during illness may be a key to success. The study’s authors...

    Once handcuffed, Floyd appeared to be calm until police explained he was under arrest and going to be transported to jail. The second video at the TMZ link below around six minutes in shows Floyd falling as police attempt to get him in the transport vehicle. The complaint against officer Chauvin says Floyd was falling "intentionally" and telling officers he would not get into the vehicle.As Floyd struggled and police were unable to get him in the vehicle, Chauvin arrived on the scene and also struggled to get Floyd in the back seat of the car. Floyd fell to the...

    Amid the great political divide that seems to have gotten drawn during the coronavirus pandemic and the response to it, there’s an awakening of sorts. In some cases, it separates right from left. But sometimes, it’s where left meets right. It has to do with liberty and double standards. Not since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks has our society been so severely tested in terms of how far we believe our government must go, can go, should go, or dares to go when it comes to controlling us for “our own good.” A persistent problem is the public’s recognition...
  • Trump Says Biden's Biggest Strength Should Be His Experience But He 'Doesn't Remember What He Did Yesterday'

    In a brief clip for Sunday's 'Full Measure with Sharyl Attkisson', Trump quickly lambasted Biden as being forgetful when asked what Biden's 'strongest feature' was as a competitor. 'Well I would have said experience but he doesn't really have experience because I don't think he remembers what he did yesterday,' the president said in the brief interview segment. 'So how is that experience. He has been there a long time. He was never known as a smart person.' The show is scheduled to air on Sinclair sites at 9.30am EDT on Sunday.

    For many observers, the idea that the intelligence community would flout certain rules in order to investigate American citizens is news. But for former CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson, “Obamagate” is just the latest development in a nearly decade-long battle. “I would say I may not be one of the first victims, but I am one of the first people who was able to identify myself as a target of illegal spying under the Obama administration,” Attkisson told Mediaite in an interview this week. “I believe many, many others were spied on but do not know. It was only thanks to...

    Full Measure News ^ | SUNDAY, MAY 17TH 2020 | Full Measure Staff / Sharyl Attkisson
    If you’ve watched the news lately, you might be under the impression that a medicine President Trump touted as a possible game changer against coronavirus — has been debunked and discredited. Two divergent views of the drug, hydroxychloroquine, have emerged: the negative one widely reported in the press and another side you’ve probably heard less about. Never has a discussion about choices of medicine been so laced with political overtones. Today, how politics, money and medicine intersect with coronavirus. President Trump: Now, it may not work, in which case, hey, it didn’t work. Sharyl: Studies from China and France sparked...

    Sharyl: Camps largely divided along political lines. Many right-leaning media figures sided with hydroxychloroquine while the left-leaning press backed remdesivir. Each accusing the other of ignoring real science. Dr. William O’Neill: I've never seen science politicized in 40 years of practice. Sharyl: Cardiologist Dr. William O’Neill is a medical director at the Henry Ford Health System in Detroit, Michigan where they’re studying both remdesivir and hydroxychloroquine. Some people in the media are treating hydroxychloroquine as if it's something that's being pitched by charlatans, it's dangerous, and that's been debunked and discredited. What do you make of that? Dr. O’Neill: I...
  • A look at hydroxycholoroquine (without the spin)

    05/15/2020 8:28:47 AM PDT · by Hojczyk · 5 replies
    The anti-malaria medicine hydroxycholorquine is being studied as a possible treatment for and prevention of coronavirus. How did this medicine that was held out as having so much promise for Covid-19, based on early studies and treating physicians' experience, become so controversial? What started the media drumbeat to say the medicine is dangerous... even quackery? Sunday on Full Measure, we investigate. See what I found when I spoke to scientists and followed the money. We'll report without the spin.
  • Coronavirus vs. Flu: The actual stats

    03/24/2020 7:30:01 AM PDT · by Hojczyk · 74 replies
    Many people have sought to compare coronavirus to seasonal flu, but without the hard stats. In fact, the statistics are a moving target. For one, people can get flu year round, but peak flu season is over, according to CDC. Coronavirus has not yet peaked in the U.S., says CDC. Since coronavirus is an unknown entity, its numbers could theoretically overtake those of flu. Also, coronavirus is likely far more prevalent than implied by official case counts based on positive tests, since many people are not getting tested for coronavirus. Scientists say there are many similarities between flu and coronavirus...

    Coronavirus is nothing to sneeze at. But so far, widespread panic may not be justified. You should know: Almost all of the reported coronavirus deaths in the U.S. happened in long-term care facilities in Washington State. And almost all of those occurred at the same facility. Most people who get coronavirus have mild or no symptoms. No young or middle-age people have died of coronavirus in the U.S. Most around the world diagnosed from January-March 1 have already recovered. Obviously, this is a fast-moving news target. For the latest information from the government, you can visit the Centers for Disease...

    Obviously, the coronavirus story changes by the moment. But here is a snapshot in time of coronavirus deaths, as reported by CDC and in news reports. The majority of U.S. deaths to date (31 of 40) have occurred among the elderly, sick in Washington State nursing homes or long term care facilities. A majority of the Washington State deaths (27 of 31) occurred in King County. A majority of the King County deaths in Washington State (22 of 31) occurred at the same elderly nursing facility in Kirkland. This large cluster in one facility is under investigation. There have also...

    Amid scandal and abuse, reforming the FISA surveillance system will not be easy. But without systemic reform, the secret court at the heart of the government’s surveillance authority may not even survive. “I don’t even give [the secret FISA Court] a 50-50 chance” of survival in its present form, Rep. Scott Perry (R-Pa.) told Just The News. Many Democrats and Republicans on Capitol Hill now say they are in agreement that something transformative must be done to fix shortcomings in the programs that allow government spying on U.S. citizens. But agreement on details is proving elusive.(I discuss why fixing FISA...

    A former US secret service agent has pleaded guilty to stealing over $800,000 worth of bitcoin during an investigation into online drug marketplace Silk Road. Shaun Bridges, 33, appeared in federal court in San Francisco and admitted to money laundering and obstruction of justice. Silk Road operated for more than two years until it was shut down in October 2013 having generated more than $214m in sales of drugs and other illicit goods using bitcoin, prosecutors said. Ross Ulbricht, Silk Road’s creator, who authorities say used the alias Dread Pirate Roberts, was sentenced to life in prison after a federal...

    here are many books, TV shows, and movies about once-revered FBI agents portaying them as heroes. But after revelations concerning Donald Trump, Richard Jewell (accused of the Atlanta Olympic bombing), and well-respected journalist Sharyl Attkisson, people might be reconsidering. Maybe FBI should stand for Fear, Beware, and Intimidate, while DoJ, the parent company, should stand for Department to Obstruct Justice. Granted, many do their jobs well, but the leaders at the top are definitely suspect to having an agenda. American Thinker had the privilege of interviewing Sharyl Attkisson, a whistleblower of sorts, about her reaction to the current climate regarding...

Larry Klayman is also a former federal prosecutor and longtime swamp-watcher. He head up Freedom Watch, a public interest group that investigates government corruption.
