Frontline Doctors Return to Washington D.C. to Dispel COVID Myths and to Offer Truth and Hope

by Brian Shilhavy
Editor, Health Impact News

America’s Frontline Doctors returned to Washington D.C. this week for their second White Coat Summit.

You can read about their first visit to D.C. last July, where they exposed the hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) scandal, here:

“Nobody Needs to Die” – Frontline Doctors Storm D.C. Claiming “Thousands of Doctors” are Being Silenced on Facts and Treatments for COVID

Their Press Conference on the steps of the Supreme Court back in July quickly went viral, and was promptly deleted and censored by Big Tech platforms such as Facebook and Google’s Youtube.

Health Impact News grabbed a copy before they were deleted, and published it on our Bitchute channel, where it currently has over 190,000 views.

They were back in even greater numbers this week, again giving an initial Press Conference in front of the Supreme Court.

Dr. Simone Gold, the founder of Frontline Doctors, gave the opening address:

Hello everybody. I am Dr. Simone Gold. I’m a board certified emergency physician and the founder of America’s Frontline Doctors.

I’m also a Stanford University educated attorney.

And we’ve come back with some of my group for the second White Coat Summit.

We’re here to speak to America just like we did on July 27th.

At that time we brought the American people truth and hope and optimism.

And we’re here to give you more truth and more reasons to be optimistic and to not live in fear.

There continues to be a great deal of disinformation and outright censorship.

Since our Summit, the censorship unfortunately has gotten worse.

Because of that, we’ve established a website: America’s Frontline Doctors, where you can find the truth, where the truth is not censored.

Today, we’re going to bring you information about masks, about lockdowns, about most importantly, early treatment.

Reasons to be optimistic. We’re going to dispel the myths.


I want to start with masks. And I start with this because there is a legal crisis, a Constitutional crisis, that we’re not recognizing. And it is, to some extent, personified by the forced, mandated wearing of masks.

Let’s not tip toe around the great big elephant in the room. The facts are actually not in dispute.

Masks are completely irrelevant in blocking the SARS-COV2 virus.

Prior to March 2020 there were no scientific journals that asserted that masks could keep out a virus.

A virus is 1/1000 the size of a hair.

Consider what our Emperor Fauci said when asked if he’s sure that masks work.

Now remember, he is not new to the game. This has been his life’s work for decades.

There was no chance that what he said was a mistake. And there was no chance that SARS-COV2 is different than any other RNA virus that he has made his life’s work.

Dr. Fauci said, “When you’re in the middle of an outbreak, wearing a mask might make people feel better. And it might even block a droplet.

But it isn’t providing the perfect protection that people think it is, and often there are unintended consequences.”

What the New England Journal of Medicine, a premier medical journal, had to say about masks. The following:

“It is clear that masks serve symbolic roles. Masks are lucky charms that may help increase health care worker’s perceived sense of safety and well-being.  Although such reactions may not be strictly logical, we’re all subject to fear and anxiety, especially during times of crisis.  Expanded masking protocols greatest contribution may be to reduce the transmission of anxiety.”

That is per the New England Journal of Medicine.

I will put it plainly to you, my fellow Americans, you have been lied to by the media.

Propaganda is not a new phenomenon. Thomas Jefferson said, “The man who reads nothing at all is better educated than the man who reads nothing but newspapers.”

And John F. Kennedy pointed out, “It does not matter if the propaganda had a sinister purpose. The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie, but the myth persistent, persuasive, and unrealistic.”

I’m telling you – these doctors deserve awards.  In a time of unprecedented censorship, bullying, and conflicts of interest, these folks stand up and state the truth.  They’ve already been mercilessly attacked:

But Lyme/MSIDS patients are used to this sort of bullying and censorship. It’s been going on since the organism was identified and continues to this day.  Our doctors have also been mercilessly and unfairly attacked:  https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2020/04/26/cdc-playbook-learning-from-lyme/

It’s beyond time for a CDC/NIAD/FDA/HHS walk away movement:   https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2020/09/01/it-is-time-to-reboot-public-health-time-for-a-cdc-niaid-fda-walk-away-movement/

WKYT Investigates | COVID confusion

Initial coronavirus symptoms are common signs for other illnesses, too. That can cause problems for patients.
Published: Oct. 19, 2020 

CARLISLE, Ky. (WKYT) – Lakyn Reid has always spent a lot of time in the woods, hiking, hunting and just enjoying nature. Now, though, she’s hesitant to go out.

“My life drastically changed,” she said. “Forever.”

(See link for article and new video)



I’m far more worried about tick-borne illnesses than COVID-19.

I highly doubt this woman is alone.  With the hyper-attention being given to COVID-19, doctors are even less likely to think about TBI’s.

This poor woman has both Lyme and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, which also isn’t uncommon:  https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2018/10/30/study-shows-lyme-msids-patients-infected-with-many-pathogens-and-explains-why-we-are-so-sick/

Important quote from news story:

“We’re having patients that are tested several times for COVID, and then later on finding that it was Lyme Disease,” Vicki Petsy, president of the Kentucky Lyme Disease Association told WKYT’s Garrett Wymer. “And this is happening too much.”

My prediction: this will continue to happen.

Also important to note is the CDC’s statement that RMSF and Ehrlichiosis are the most common tick-borne illnesses in Kentucky and that Lyme used to be less common but is increasing, but then illogically state cases are ‘rare.’

With testing that misses over 70% of cases, I think we can surmise many are going undiagnosed:  https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2020/03/01/study-cdcs-2-tier-lyme-testing-inaccurate-in-more-than-70-of-cases/

It took Reid two weeks before getting a correct diagnosis.  This is actually pretty good considering many patients go YEARS without knowing they are infected with things that can kill them out right.  

It’s beyond time for accurate testing.

Much has come out on COVID-19 being made/tweaked directly in a lab & our own government is implicated:

Yet, this dangerous research continues on unabated:



Detection of potentially pathogenic bacteria from Ixodes ricinus carried by pets in Tuscany, Italy

Background: Ticks are vectors of disease-causing pathogens that pose a serious threat to animals and people. Dogs and cats are exposed to tick infestation in multiple ways and can easily transport infected ticks into domestic environments and potentially transfer them to people. Pet owners are at increased risk of picking up ticks from their pets and developing tickborne diseases. This study aims to detect the presence of pathogens of potential public health interest in ticks removed from cats and dogs in Tuscany, Italy.

Methods: The collected ticks were screened for the presence of protozoan (Theileria species and Babesia species) and bacterial (Rickettsia species, Anaplasma species, Ehrlichia species, Chlamydia species, Bartonella species and Coxiella burnetii) pathogens using PCR.

Results: PCR and sequencing analysis revealed that

  • 3% of the ticks were PCR-positive for the presence of Rickettsia helvetica DNA
  • 5 %of ticks were PCR-positive for Bartonella henselae DNA
  • 46% of ticks were PCR-positive for Chlamydia psittaci and Chlamydia abortus DNA
  • None of the examined ticks was PCR-positive for Theileria species, Babesia species, Anaplasma species, Ehrlichia canis or Coxiella burnetii DNA

Conclusion: The results of this preliminary study highlight the importance of monitoring companion animals as indicators to evaluate the health status of their owners. Preventive measures are necessary to limit the spread of zoonotic pathogens from companion animals to people within the home environment.



Ixodes ricinus, aka the castor bean tick is considered a  European species of tick that can transmit the following:

Now, there is the potential of two strains of Chlamydia to be added the growing list, with nearly half of the ticks in the study carrying it.

What does this mean to patients?  Good question.  We may never know because researchers are too busy studying ‘climate change,’ to have time for such silly endeavors as uncovering the effects of polymicrobial illness on patients.

This isn’t the first time we’ve heard of ticks carrying chlamydia:  https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2016/10/07/chlamydia-like-organisms-found-in-ticks/

Here, researchers identify chlamydia along with other pathogens in Alzheimer’s:  https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2019/03/09/researchers-identify-herpes-1-chlamydia-pneumoniae-several-types-of-spirochaete-as-major-causes-of-alzheimers/


Great read on the types of chlamydia:  https://articles.mercola.com/chlamydia/types.aspx The first two are mentioned in the abstract:

  • Chlamydia trachomatis can be passed from one person to another via unprotected sexual intercourse. Pain English: this is a STD.
  • Chlamydia pneumoniae (C. pneumoniae), a nonsexually transmitted disease that infects the lungs and causes bacterial pneumonia.
  • Chlamydia psittaci is another chlamydia strain that can lead to a rare condition called psittacosis, aka “parrot fever.”
