JAN 25, 2023 — 

This petition update is a continuation of the attempts to alert Dr. Arnold Chen, Senior Researcher at Mathematica that the CDC (Grace Marx, MD, MPH) is deliberately misrepresenting Lyme disease which will lead to inappropriate guidance for the medical community.

Dear Dr. Chen,

Please see the email below dated one day before Dr. Marx presented her Clinician Outreach and Communication Activity (COCA) Webinar on May 20, 2021.

There are 9 important facts about Lyme disease missing from Dr. Marx’s presentation and I assume these facts will also be missing from the upcoming guidance created by Mathematica

Dear Dr. Marx,

As a member of the New Hampshire Lyme Disease Study Commission appointed by Governor Chris Sununu, I have some concerns/questions regarding your upcoming presentation.

If there is to be no “bias” in your presentation does that mean that the CDC will finally recognize persistent infection after extensive antibiotic treatment? Please take a moment to read my letter to the editor published in the BMJ as I have identified seven documented cases of treatment failure; there are actually hundreds.

Letter to the editor of the BMJ

Lyme borreliosis: diagnosis and management
https://www.bmj.com/content/369/bmj.m1041/rr-1

Dr. Marx… will you be sharing the following facts/references with the intended audience?

  1. It takes 4-6 weeks for humans to fully develop both IgM and IgG antibodies to Lyme disease in order to produce a positive Western blot test result. [1]
  2. Treatment delay of over thirty days often leads to Chronic Lyme Disease. [2]
  3. Bulls-eye rash has been recorded in less than 50% as reported by the State of Maine Department of Health. [3]
  4. Seronegative disease has been identified [4] (no antibody production to infection producing a false negative lab result)
  5. You can become horribly disabled or die [5] from Lyme disease and routinely denied Social Security Disability Compensation.
  6. 35% of acute Lyme disease patients (21out of 63) who were treated with the IDSA’s short course of antibiotics were found to meet the case definition of “Post Lyme Disease Syndrome” at six months. (Johns Hopkins) [6]
  7. Single dose Doxycycline after tick bite as prophylaxis against Lyme disease failed 80% of the time in the mouse model so why would this be recommended in humans? [7]
  8. There are hundreds of references to failed treatment of the one-size-fits-all IDSA Lyme treatment guideline. [8]
  9. Congenital transmission of Lyme disease has been identified dating back to 1985 [9]

I want to make this perfectly clear Dr. Marx; The current dogma propagated for the last thirty years has misguided an entire medical community and misclassified Lyme as a simple nuisance disease; “hard to catch and easily treated.” [10] Take a moment and read the public comments from the Tick-Borne Disease Working Group website and you’ll see that we have a public health crisis on our hands with hundreds of thousands (if not millions worldwide) left in a debilitated state. The deliberate bias against persistent infection after extensive antibiotic treatment is 100% responsible for this unimaginable pain and suffering.

Will your presentation continue on this path of deception and omit the facts/references I have provided?
A response to this inquiry is requested. Please hit reply-all.

Respectfully Submitted,

Carl Tuttle

More Bots Pushing COVID Shots

http://  (Approx. 11 Min)

FAKE Doctors Caught Pushing COVID “Vaccine” in Psy-Op Campaign

Redacted With Clayton Morris

Jan. 9, 2023

Dr. Fauci is trying to get out front of the Twitter files that have to do with him and his role in the pandemic. Or so it seems because he is doing the media rounds about the Covid vaccine and adverse events. Isn’t he supposed to be retired? His allies are quickly disappearing on Twitter because they were fake accounts.

This is not the first time Bots pushed a narrative.  Back in Aug. 2021, bots within social media algorithms were used to not only identify and eliminate certain facts and truths, but these AI systems are also being used to promote certain types of propaganda, to brainwash the public into accepting falsehoods as if they are popular messages of truth. To make matters worse, unscrupulous operatives are using vaccine propaganda BOT FARMS to catapult Big Pharma’s lies across social media, to instill fear in the public and advocate for more government and corporate control over lives. The latest bot farm was caught spreading lies about the unvaccinated to garner public support for vaccine passports and a system of segregation against healthy, naturally-immune people.  The BOTS did the following:

  • Personalized messages are being sent en masse & verbatim across several media platforms using fake bots
  • These are fake accounts not sent by real healthcare professionals
  • There may be paid internet trolls involved
  • Bot farms can be controlled from a single computer, hooked up to multiple phones & social media accounts
  • This deceptive propaganda is being used to gain acceptance for lockdowns, shame and segregate the unvaccinated, discourage and demoralize people from speaking out and taking action and to give the impression that a lie is a universal truth accepted by many
  • Do not engage these bots as they are programmed to defend an agenda
  • One such fake message as seen from top graphic states:

“I just left the ER. We are officially back to getting rushed by COVID-19. Delta Variant is running rampant and it’s MUCH more transmissible than the original virus. 99% of our ICU admits did NOT receive a vaccine.

Our government is also involved by censoring and disinforming the public due to conflicts with Big Pharma.

Moving the Needle in Borreliosis: Dr. Alan MacDonald

http://

Moving the Needle in Borreliosis

Dr. Alan B. MacDonald, MD

In this episode, you will learn about groundbreaking work being done to move the needle in understanding the impact of Borreliosis.

About My Guest:

My guest for this episode is Dr. Alan MacDonald. Alan B. MacDonald, MD is a hospital pathologist by trade, and his world is microscopic images. He diagnoses disease daily based on the images from surgically removed tissues, blood smears, and microbiology specimens. In his private research, which he does at night or on weekends, he interprets images from diseased tissues. In hospital pathology, there are many texts which illustrate the image profiles of tumors and other medical diseases. Some of the reference materials do not provide a “perfect” image match to an individual patient situation.

New lessons, which come from patients which do not “match” the published image archive, are the subject of “case reports” which enrich and expand the knowledge contained in medical textbooks. Many of the images of “spirochetes” in textbooks demonstrate only the “perfect corkscrew” profile which leads a reader to “doubt” the legitimacy of other Borrelial forms such as the cystic or granular forms. Dr. MacDonald’s website is an effort to educate about the “forgotten” spirochetal forms which are really Borrelia and which exist in diseased tissue.

Key Takeaways:

  • Is acceptance growing in understanding the impact of Borrelia in many conditions? 
  • Does autoimmunity exist in absence of infection? 
  • What are the different forms of Borrelia? 
  • Was Willy Burgdorfer part of the problem or part of the solution? 
  • Does Borrelia impact liver detoxification? 
  • How might Borrelia impact an unborn child? 
  • Can Borrelia be sexually transmitted? 
  • What are the challenges with testing for Borrelia? 
  • What role might parasites play in Lyme disease or in MS? 
  • What is the role of biofilms in chronic conditions? 
  • How do Tick-Borne Relapsing Fever (TBRF) Borrelias potentially lead to more severe illness? 
  • What role might Borrelia play in Alzheimer’s, Lewy Body Dementia, or cancer?

FDA Declares Homeopathy Illegal

FDA Declares Homeopathy Illegal

FDA Declares Homeopathy Illegal

The homeopathic drugs you rely on have been declared illegal by the FDA, meaning the agency can wipe them off the market whenever they wish. We must fight back. Action Alert!

This is the beginning of the end for homeopathy unless we do something about it. The FDA has completed their overhaul of homeopathy regulation, and it is as we feared: in the FDA’s view, all homeopathic products are illegal. This interpretation gives the agency the power to remove any homeopathic medicine it wants to, whenever it wants to. We must convey consumer outrage to Congress and the FDA if we want to save homeopathy.

Homeopathic drugs will not all disappear overnight. The FDA will probably adopt a similar playbook as the one they’re using to eliminate compounded medications, employing a strategy of “death by a thousand cuts.” Slowly but surely the agency will target and eliminate homeopathic medicines one by one until it is impossible for companies to stay in business. Clearing the market in one fell swoop would create headlines; picking off medicines one by one over time allows the agency to accomplish the same goal without drawing as much attention or generating as much outrage.

Why is the FDA doing this? The agency, in attacking homeopathy, is working, once again, to protect the bottom line of drug-makers. One of the most popular uses for homeopathic medicines is for allergies. But consider that the market for Zyrtec, one of the most popular antihistamine drugs, was valued at $1.675 billion in 2021; the market for antihistamine nasal sprays is just under $2 billion. The same applies to other conditions. There’s good evidence, for example, to suggest homeopathy is effective for rheumatoid arthritis and pain management. The market for rheumatoid arthritis drugs and pain management drugs is $60 billion and $73 billion, respectively. Homeopathy cuts into these massive profits. Big Pharma and the FDA, which gets its funding from Big Pharma, want to eliminate this competition.

The FDA says it will focus on a few product categories for enforcement: those with safety concerns, products with routes of administration other than oral or topical, products to treat “serious or life-threatening conditions,” products for vulnerable populations, and products with “significant” quality issues.

We noted previously that the agency went after injectable homeopathic medicines. This means that homeopathic mistletoe for injection is on the chopping block, a safe cancer therapy that has been used for years. Studies show that mistletoe can improve symptoms and quality of life, and reduce chemotherapy and radiotherapy side effects, including in pancreatic, lungcolorectal, and breast cancers.

OTC homeopathic medicines for cold and flu, teething, allergies, and other less serious conditions that can resolve spontaneously with or without treatment are likely safe for the time being. But the FDA also notes unequivocally that, although they outline a risk-based approach, no homeopathic medicines are safe. The agency states: “However, this guidance is intended to provide notice that any homeopathic drug product that is being marketed illegally is subject to FDA enforcement action at any time [emphasis added].”

Earlier this month, we reported that the FDA was preparing to release the final version of their terrible guidance document setting forth the agency’s approach to regulating homeopathic drugs. Substantively, the final version is unchanged from the draft. The guidance declares that all homeopathic drugs are illegal because:

  1. Any homeopathic drug that has not been considered “generally recognized as safe and effective” (GRAS/E) is considered a new drug;
  2. FDA has not determined that any homeopathic drugs are GRAS/E;
  3. A new drug cannot be marketed unless it goes through the FDA’s approval process;
  4. No homeopathic drugs have gone through FDA approval.

The FDA is, and has been, out of control. It approves dangerous, expensive drugs that don’t work, and works to eliminate your access to natural alternatives to those dangerous, ineffective, and expensive drugs. The FDA doesn’t even want you learning about the benefits of natural products, lest you are persuaded to opt for medicines that are not FDA-approved drugs.

Homeopathy is used by almost 7 million Americans, who the FDA apparently thinks are not equipped to make their own healthcare choices. We need to register consumer outrage by flooding the public docket with comments demanding that access to homeopathic products—which are overwhelmingly safe—be retained.

Action Alert! Post a comment to the public docket urging continued access to homeopathic products and send a similar message to Congress. Please send your message immediately.

_____________

**Comment**

Homeopathy is far from the only thing the FDA is trying to rid the planet of.  They’ve also attacked:

The FDA also wanted to hide adverse events caused by the COVID gene therapy shots for 75 years, but was ordered to produce 55,000 pages of data per month.  This organization needs to go.  Even insiders state the agency has “lost its soul.”

The FDA is also censoring free speech by going after supposed ‘misinformation.’

It targets companies that compete with their monopoly of “FDA-approved” drugs that fund the agency.
