The FDA Misled the Public About Ivermectin and Should Be Accountable in Court, Argues AAPS

The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) filed its motion and amicus brief Thursday evening with the federal district court in Galveston urging it to allow the lawsuit to proceed against the FDA for its misleading statements against ivermectin. In Apter v. HHS, a group of physicians sued to hold the Food and Drug Administration, a federal agency within the Department of Health & Human Services (HHS), accountable for its interference with physicians’ ability to treat Covid-19.

“Defendant FDA has improperly exploited misunderstandings about the legality and prevalence of off-label uses of medication, in order to mislead courts, state medical boards, and the public into thinking there is anything improper about off-label prescribing,” AAPS writes in its amicus brief to the court. “Not only is off-label prescribing fully proper, legal, and commonplace, but it is also absolutely necessary in order to give effective care to patients.”

Yet the FDA published multiple statements and sent letters to influential organizations to falsely disparage ivermectin, implying that it was not approved for treating Covid-19. Many, including courts and state medical boards, were misled by the FDA into thinking that its lack of approval for this treatment meant that ivermectin should not be used to treat Covid-19.

“It has never been proper for the FDA to interfere with that essential part of the practice of medicine, and the FDA knows it,” AAPS informed the court. The FDA “insisted and continues to insist on interfering with the prescription of this safe medication by physicians in treating Covid-19,” AAPS added.

AAPS General Counsel Andrew Schlafly pointed out to the court that the FDA “has engaged in a campaign of interference with the proper use by physicians of ivermectin, which has long been approved as fully safe for human use.” He alerted the court that once the FDA approves a medication as safe, then physicians have full authority to prescribe it to treat any illness, particularly a novel virus like Covid-19.

Subpoena on Senator Lindsey Graham Should be Quashed and the Fulton County Grand Jury Shut Down

Subpoena on Senator Lindsey Graham Should be Quashed and the Fulton County Grand Jury Shut Down

In an amicus brief filed Sept 21, the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) urged the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit to quash the subpoena on Senator Lindsey Graham to testify before a Fulton County grand jury in Georgia. Democrats overwhelmingly control that county, and did nothing for more than a year before engaging in a flurry of headline-grabbing activity on the eve of the upcoming midterm elections, AAPS points out.

“Didn’t Fulton County get the memo about this important public policy against using prosecutions to cause headlines near elections?” AAPS asked rhetorically in its amicus brief. Policy at the U.S. Department of Justice requires that prosecutors stand down for at least 60 or 90 days prior to an election, yet the Fulton County prosecutors have been a factory of headlines to disparage Republicans, AAPS informs the court.

“Our constitutional system has a check-and-balance on every potential abuse of power,” AAPS observes. “This federal court is the primary check-and-balance against a county proceeding that contravenes public policy and the democratic process for elections to federal offices” and should “rein in Fulton County both to quash its subpoena of Lindsey Graham and end its irresponsible interference with any future election.”

“The nearly two years of silence and then sudden headline-generating work by the Fulton County Democrats in this case cannot credibly be described as a mere coincidence,” states AAPS’s amicus brief. “For more than 20 months the officials in Fulton County generated few headlines, and then on the brink of the midterm election there has been a flurry of activity to generate very disparaging headlines against top Republican leaders.”

“It chills this First Amendment right to threaten prosecution or haul someone before a distant grand jury for hostile questioning based on disputing a reported election result,” AAPS points out. Sen. Lindsey Graham and Donald Trump should not be “made political target practice through a misuse of prosecutorial authority,” AAPS adds.

Pro-life Physician Addresses Pro-choice Concerns

In the wake of the Dobbs decision in which the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, medical organizations and journals are restating their positions favorable to abortion.

“Whose life is more important?” is a pervasive concern of abortion supporters, writes family physician Sheila Page, D.O., in the fall issue of the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons.

While it may be claimed that doctors might fear doing a needed procedure, lest they be accused of a crime, Dr. Page points out: “Procedures needed to save the life of the mother [such as removing a tubal pregnancy] are specifically defined not to be abortions. An early delivery necessitated by a mother’s health issue is not an abortion, as every effort is made to preserve the infant’s life if possible.”

Concerning the claim that giving birth is more dangerous than legal abortion, Dr. Page responds that the numbers are not comparable: “Abortion mortality is actually completely unknown, as the only ones tracking abortion mortality are abortionists who have a vested interest in not reporting honest numbers.”

“It seems that some physicians give little or no consideration to the ethics of abortion, which is often referred to as a medical treatment or a ‘reproductive right,’” she states. “Many physicians do not agree with this view but will not speak out because of fear of professional backlash by the abortion-friendly medical societies.”

Dr. Page’s view is that “the medical profession’s eagerness to protect abortion practices reflects a disturbing inversion wherein the ones we trust to be healers are using medical tools to terminate rather than protect life.”

She concludes that “the calling of a physician is to be a guardian of health and life, not an agent of death.”

COVID-19: Should I get the new BA-5 bivalent booster?

COVID-19: Should I get the new BA-5 bivalent booster?

It is easy to get confused about all the COVID-19 boosters.

New variants of the virus keep popping up, with vaccine makers in hot pursuit. There is not enough time to do the usual human testing before releasing each new one.

The BA-5 bivalent shot has only been tested in eight mice—no humans. But Dr. Anthony Fauci is not concerned about it. The technology is basically the same as the earlier shots, and we supposedly know that they are “very safe.” After all, we don’t test the new flu shot every year. But vaccine expert Dr. Paul Offit is hesitant because the mRNA technology has only been used in vaccines since 2020.

But is the benefit of protection against a dread disease worth the risk? As the graphs below show, effectiveness wanes quickly, and becomes negative within 4 to 5 months (red circles).

Worse still, the vaccines also seem to impair the natural immunity already developed by children who had had COVID before being vaccinated.

One New York pharmacist is on the video linked above calling the stated lack of testing “fake news.” CDC director Rochelle Walensky states that they are using “trusted messengers” to put out a “simplified message”: “Just get your fall booster.”

The booster is available under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA), and informed consent is required. “It’s up to you.”

Some questions you might ask the vaccine administrator:

  • Could the vaccines impair immunity, accounting for post-vaccine shingles or other infections?
  • Could interference with native immunity increase cancer risk?
  • If I should have an adverse event that later seems to have been linked to the vaccine, could you be liable if you failed to warn me about it?
  • Are there any possible side effects I should be aware of?

Monkeypox: Should I Get Vaccinated?

Monkeypox: Should I Get Vaccinated?

I hope you are resuming normal life. But should you again hunker down because of yet another infectious disease threat?

The head of the World Health Organization (WHO), Dr. Tedros (not a medical doctor), has declared that monkeypox is a “Public Health Emergency of International Concern” (PHEIC), overriding the majority of his own expert committee of medical and scientific advisors.

It just so happens that there are two vaccines available. The government is paying to produce millions more doses. Should you grab one as quickly as possible?

One thing you should definitely do is abstain from sex with anyone except your faithful spouse. If everyone did that, the outbreak would fizzle out in two to three weeks. The vast majority of cases (98 percent) involve men who have sex with men. It is said that the vaccine might protect a person who receives it within four days after exposure, but there is no evidence to support this.

 Sexual contact is not necessary for transmission. A person could get infected through direct or indirect contact with the skin lesions, say by hugging or sharing towels.

Things to know about the vaccine:

  • Everyone who gets it is an experimental subject. The government thinks it should be effective against smallpox and is cousin monkeypox, but it is impossible to test for efficacy. There has been no smallpox for decades and very little monkeypox. People do make antibodies, but do they work?
  • According to the vaccine label, as many as 1 in 50 recipients had a “cardiac event of special interest,” and FDA documents showed that up to 18% (almost one in five) had an elevated troponin level, a blood test indicating possible heart damage.
  • The vaccine may be immunosuppressive. Around 7 percent of HIV-positive subjects had worsening of their HIV test results and may be more susceptible to other infections.

Additional information:

        The safe and effective way to avoid monkeypox is to avoid exposure and to practice excellent hygiene—not to rely on experimental vaccines and treatments.

Biden’s Mask Mandate for Travelers Was Unauthorized, Argues AAPS

Biden’s Mask Mandate for Travelers Was Unauthorized, Argues AAPS

The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) filed its amicus brief with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit on Friday against the Biden Administration’s mask mandate on airplanes and other public transportation. The court is hearing Biden’s appeal from the April federal district court decision that invalidated his mask mandate.

“Mask mandates are tyrannical, and Congress never authorized the CDC to require travelers to wear masks,” stated Andrew Schlafly, General Counsel of AAPS. “Mask mandates infringe on two fundamental rights: freedom of speech and freedom of travel,” he argued in AAPS’s amicus brief.

The Biden Administration did not attempt to reinstate its mask mandate for travelers after it was blocked by a federal judge, amid widespread public opposition to the mandate. But Biden appealed to the 11th Circuit to seek authority to reinstate the mask mandate at any time, Mr. Schlafly explains.

Neither the government nor the parties filing briefs supporting it demonstrate effectiveness to Biden’s mask mandate, Mr. Schlafly argued in the brief. He cited multiple recent articles admitting to the ineffectiveness of mask mandates in different regions of our country.

“The ability to see another’s demeanor while he is speaking is often as important as the content of what he says,” the AAPS brief states. “Historically many American states and towns prohibited the wearing of masks, in order to avoid the harm they cause.” The brief cites how New York State banned mask-wearing for more than a century until the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mask mandates are more politics than science, and politics is to be sorted out in the halls of Congress rather than at a politically unaccountable administrative agency,” AAPS argues. “If Congress were to hold hearings on this issue, there would be a massive outpouring of public opposition to mask mandates,” Mr. Schlafly observes.

Despite how most schools imposed mask mandates last year, most do not now. “Fortunately, students will be able to speak and breathe without interferences by mandatory masks,” Mr. Schlafly added.

Political Prosecution of Steve Bannon and His Conviction Are an Unprecedented Outrage, Declares the AAPS

Political Prosecution of Steve Bannon and His Conviction Are an Unprecedented Outrage, Declares the AAPS

The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) decries the political prosecution and conviction of conservative Steve Bannon. After being denied his right to call House committee members at trial, a D.C. jury found Bannon guilty today under 2 U.S.C. § 192 of contempt of Congress.

“Political prosecutions are what dictatorships do, and should never happen in the United States,” declared Andrew Schlafly, General Counsel of AAPS. “Being a supporter and adviser to Donald Trump is not a real crime.”

Steve Bannon as a private citizen was targeted by the House Select Committee while spending millions of dollars for more than a year targeting Trump supporters about protests on January 6, 2021. The Department of Justice rejected a recommendation by this Democrat-controlled committee to prosecute former congressman Mark Meadows for the same charges that it prosecuted Bannon on.

“When the Republican House voted that Democrat-appointed Eric Holder was in contempt of Congress, DOJ immediately announced its refusal to prosecute him,” Mr. Schlafly said. “Yet DOJ went after Steve Bannon, and he was prevented at trial from calling any of the House Democrats who initiated this against him.”

“This prosecution and conviction of Steve Bannon are unprecedented,” observed Andrew Schlafly, General Counsel of AAPS. “This prosecution of Bannon merely advances the political goals of enemies of Donald Trump.”

During jury selection in Bannon’s case, many potential jurors expressed their political views against Steve Bannon. They were excused from the jury, but the prevalence of their views in D.C. indicated that the trial should not have proceeded there.

“D.C. is not a fair venue for a trial pitting Democrats in Congress against a critic of them,” continued Mr. Schlafly. “The incoming new Congress, predicted to be Republican, should change the law so that trials are held where defendant resides, not where federal government employs so many.”

“The incoming expectedly Republican House should enact a resolution to pardon Steve Bannon on its first day in session in January,” Jane Orient, M.D., the Executive Director of AAPS, stated.
