Opportunity to sign a petition to the White House to make HCQ available over the counter.

PPE may be unavailable or inadequate, more importantly infringes on Constitutional protections.

In most states, physicians and pharmacies face unprecedented barriers to prescribing HCQ for prevention or early treatment of COVID-19.

Prevention and early treatment is key.

HCQ is safer than other OTC drugs, including aspirin, acetaminophen, diphenhydramine, and Plan B. It is even given to pregnant women and nursing mothers as a treatment for Lupus.

HCQ has been used for more than 65 years in hundreds of millions of patients, and has been available OTC in many places.

A number of studies and the experience of many physicians show that early HCQ, especially with zinc supplements, is highly effective.

The only way to assure that powerful bureaucracies or vested interests cannot prevent patients from exercising freedom to choose is to make the drug available OTC

(AAPS) If you would rather see a lot of other people die than help solve the COVID crisis until after the election, then this is not for you, otherwise please add your name to the petition.

Ohio Dept of Health BANS hydroxychloroquine in treating COVID19

COLUMBUS — The Ohio Department of Health has reportedly banned the use of hydroxychloroquine in treating COVID-19. The rule goes into effect Thursday.

Ohio Department of Health spokesperson Melanie Amato made the announcement, saying the drug touted by President Donald Trump is “not an effective treatment.”

According to WHIO, the rule “prohibits selling or dispensing hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine for the treatment or prevention of COVID-19.”

This comes after a group of Doctors held “America’s Frontline Doctors Summit” in Washington, D.C., in which the medical experts praised the use of hydroxychloroquine and some said there was no need for a mask mandate or economic shutdown.

The video, which was shared by President Trump on Twitter, was pulled by Twitter, YouTube/Google and Facebook. The tech giants labeled the news conference as spreading “false information.” As an interesting aside, my previous blog entry: https://lenbilen.com/2020/07/28/the-corona-virus-cure-early-treatment-with-hydroxychloroquine-zinc-zithromax-negative-studies-all-dealt-with-late-stage-hospitalized-patients/ can only be searched by bing, duckduckgo and yahoo, but not google. I wonder why.

For as long as as it lasts, here is a comment about the discontinued video:

In Ohio there is about 25 deaths a day, and about half of them would be eliminated if HCQ was endorsed as effective if administered as early as possible a. This means that between now and election at least 1200 lives are sacrificed, all in an effort to prolong the COVID hysteria and ensure a Democratic win in November. And this is for Ohio alone! Forty-four states have limitations on HCQ use to treat Covid-19 as an out patient.

Updated: The next day GOP Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine reportedly urged the state’s pharmacy board to withdraw a proposed ban of hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine for use as coronavirus treatments.

Under the proposed ban, pharmacies, clinics and other medical institutions would’ve been prohibited from dispensing or selling the drugs to treat COVID-19. But in an announcement Thursday, the pharmacy board pulled back the regulation change, stating it would reexamine the issue.

The Three Gorges Dam is is danger of collapsing. A Limerick.

Precarious, the Three Gorges dam;

the rain is the battering ram

and the earthquake as well

as the Yang Tse does swell

Constructing the dam was a sham.

When the Three Gorges River was built it was hailed as an engineering masterpiece and proof of the superiority of the central planning and execution of the Communist regime of the People’s Republic of China. But there were real problems from the start. It was built without an independent quality control function, so they asked a western organization to verify the structural integrity of the construction. It turned out that the rebars in the large concrete blocks were not affixed properly from unit to unit, and had not been affixed to the bedrock below, but could be subject to a slow creep under the pressure of water. The findings were not only ignored, but the inspectors were accused of racial prejudice, and besides, the construction was already done, and could not be changed. So it was given the final go-ahead.

There are troubling pictures emerging of that “slow creep:”

The creep in not inches, some parts of the dam has moved many feet from their original position. This is a disaster in making.

The torrential rains have been falling and now all the floodgates are open. The water behind the dam has risen to more than 50 feet above flood level and is close to top the whole dam.

Downstream there is a 700 year old Buddhist temple. It is still standing, but mostly under water

And this is what it looks like under normal circumstances.

Further downstream the flooding is getting worse than they were before the Three Gorges dam was constructed. After all it was made to alleviate floods.

Downstream are big cities like Wuhan, Nanjing and Shanghai.

Death toll in the north and central China floods have risen to 150 people, with scores still missing and hundreds of thousands forced from homes.. The dam is in a region that experiences frequent earthquakes, and so far there has been a small, shallow earthquake in the region, but everybody is bracing for the “big one.”

This is just the beginning.

 

 

The case fatality rate of COVID-19 is reduced by a factor of 2.8 if HCQ + Zinc is administered as soon as possible. 1.2 Million cases are proof enough!

President Donald Trump ripped the “Fake News” media on Tuesday for not reporting that the U.S. has the lowest COVID-19 mortality rate in the world.

The president tweeted a Washington Times article that discusses the decreasing death rate.

“We have the lowest Mortality Rate in the World,” Trump wrote. “The Fake News should be reporting these most important of facts, but they don’t!”

His press secretary Kayleigh McEnany in her press briefing posted this chart to boost his claim.

The article covers a Monday White House press conference. McEnany told reporters that the American death toll has fallen for weeks and the virus fatality rate is below France, the United Kingdom and Germany.

She said the death toll has significantly dropped from the height of the outbreak when the U.S. logged 2,500 deaths per day to 254 deaths on Saturday, according to the article.

To confirm it the case fatality rate for Germany is as of July 7: 4.59%

The corresponding number for U.S.A.: 4.33%

Is that the lowest percentage in the world?

There are more than ten countries with a lower case fatality rate. At least ten of them have one thing in common. These ten countries prescribe the use of  HydroxyChloroQuine to all people that show symptoms of COVID-19, even before a positive test is confirmed.

Turkey: 2.53%

South Korea: 2.15%

Senegal: 1.82%

Morocco: 1.64%

Russia: 1.48%

Malaysia: 1.39%

United Arab Emirates: 0.62%

Costa Rica: 0.42%

Bahrain: 0.32%

Qatar: 0.13%, but since 88% of the population are migrant workers between 20 and 60, the adjusted death rate for the permanent residents would be maybe 8 times higher, or about 1%

The total number of positive cases for these ten countries are over 1.2 million, far more than any double blind test could ever produce.

Taking the average, adjusted for the number of positive cases, the average adjusted death rate for ten countries, where people are taking HCQ + Zinc as soon as they are showing symptoms or diagnosed positive, is 1.51%.

This means that the risk of death is reduced by a factor of 2.8 if HZQ + Zinc is taken as early as possible after showing symptoms or after a positive diagnosis for corona-virus!

 

First Lady Melania Trump at Mount Rushmore, A Limerick.

First Lady in dress on Mount Rushmore

from Central Saint Martin’s design floor,

where some girls got a chance

make designs, think of dance,

a dance of a lifetime, and much more.

https://http://www.papermag.com/alexander-mcqueen-dancing-girls-dress-2645945769.html

Some lucky design students at Central Saint Martins got the opportunity of a lifetime last year when Alexander McQueen enlisted their help to contribute in the making of its Spring 2020 collection.

Worn by British model Stella Tennant, Look 10 consisted of a white sleeveless midi dress featuring abstract line drawings of “dancing girls” that were done by the aforementioned students. (All of their names were credited in the show notes.)

Alexander McQueen gave PAPER a behind-the-scenes look at the making of this dress. The students’ dancing girl sketches were done on long white sheets during a life-drawing class led by fashion illustrator Julie Verhoeven at the brand’s flagship store in London.

Afterwards, creative director Sarah Burton enlisted the entire McQueen staff to hand-embroider and stitch over the sketches of a single ivory linen dress.

The Stitch School, a group that fosters community through needlework, provided the teams in London and Paris with specialist tables and looms so that every single person could contribute in the making of this look.

Tennant’s dress went on to inspire the dancing girls embroideries in Look 12: a blue linen dress with an open neckline and short, bulbous sleeves.

Between the school kids and her entire staff collaborating on this dress, it all amounted to the sense community spirit and togetherness that Burton championed this season. As she wrote in her show notes back then, “I love the idea of people having the time to make things together, the time to meet and talk together, the time to reconnect to the world.”

 

The case for Thorium. 6. Radioactive waste from an Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor decays down to background radiation in 300 years compared to a million years for U-235 based reactors. A Limerick.

The nuclear waste meant for Yucca

would destine Nevada the sucka

But with Thorium we rid

us of waste that is hid

No need for that waste to be trucka!

Radioactive waste from an LFTR (Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor)  decays down to background radiation in 300 years instead of a million years for U-235 based reactors. Initially LFTRs produce as much radioactivity as an U-235 based nuclear reactor, since fission converts mass to heat, but the decay products have a much shorter half-life. See the figure below.

Where is the storage for spent nuclear fuel and other nuclear waste now? Look at the map, it is scary.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And these are just the U.S. installations!

Many years ago I studied Engineering at Chalmers’ University in Sweden and I thought I would become a nuclear engineer. Sweden had at that time a peaceful heavy water based nuclear power program together with Canada and India. The advantage with heavy water as moderator is that it can use natural, un-enriched Uranium. One of the end products is of course Plutonium 239, the preferred material to make nuclear bombs, but it could also use Thorium, and the end product is then mostly Plutonium 238, used in space exploration, and we were dreaming big. One of the advantages of Thorium as fuel is that it produces about 0,01%  of trans-Uranium waste compared to Uranium as fuel. About that time the U.S. proposed we should abandon the heavy water program and switch to light water enriched Uranium based nuclear power. They would sell the enriched Uranium, and reprocess the spent fuel at cost. They also had the ideal final resting place for the radioactive waste products in Nevada. This was an offer the Swedish government could not refuse, at the height of the cold war. This was  in the 1960’s! India on the other hand did refuse, and they eventually got the nuclear bomb. Since that meant Sweden was never going to use Thorium as nuclear fuel, and I could not figure out how to get rid of all the radioactive waste products, I switched my attention back to control engineering.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What did President Trump mean with innovative approaches?

Is this where Thorium comes in!?

The emancipation memorial and the MLK memorial funding sources. A Limerick.

One statue that stands in D.C.

was paid for by slaves just set free.

MLK’s is Chinese

In pink granite, you see

was outsourced by our bourgeoisie.

The Freeman’s statue of emancipation was paid for entirely by freed slaves, but the committee to select the sculptor and motive was composed of only white men. The model though was a freed slave, and in my opinion depicts the moment his chains were broken, and he looks up to heaven, giving thanks.

The statue of Martin  Luther King Jr. on the other hand is much more controversial. The sculptor is Chinese, it is made in China using pink Chinese granite. His biggest claim to fame was that he had made a statue of Mao Ze Dong. Why use Chinese pink granite for an African American? And why does he look like an overweight Chinese half emerging out of the rock? There were more than one African American sculptor that vied for the honor of a life-time to make the MLK memorial. But no, the selection committee outsourced it to China.

Be that as it may, the donor board looks like corporate America.

Notably absent is the Chinese Communist Party among the donors, they put up at least 10 million dollars, and the erection and preparing of the ground surrounding it was entirely done by Chinese “volunteers” coming from China, doing their work and going back.

 

 

 

Lenin still stands in Seattle. Who would ever topple the father of the movement? A Limerick.

Old Lenin stands tall in Seattle.

He is the main source of the battle.

Meanwhile statues come down

of great men of renown.

Bewildered we look, like dumb cattle.

Over the past few weeks, scores of statues of our founding fathers and Generals,  Cristóbal Colón, Junípero Serra , and even the Pioneer and the Pioneer Mother have been toppled by rioters. They will not stop until all historic memorials are demolished, like what happened in the onset of theFrench Revolution, the Russian Revolution or the Chinese Cultural Revolution.

The death toll from the French Revolution was about 40,000, from the Russian Revolution 7 to 12 million, and from the Cultural Revolution up to 20 million, followed by the Great Leap Forward, which heralded in the Great Famine, killing another 30 Million.

These are serious times.

 

 

One person killed and another shot this weekend in CHOP, Seattle. A Limerick.

A shooting in Seattle  — the third in 48 hours — was reported Sunday night in the area known as the CHOP, or Capitol Hill Organized Protest.

One person with a gunshot wound arrived at Harborview Medical Center in a private vehicle, the police and rescue personnel had been blocked from entry. The person was in serious condition.

Early Saturday morning, a 19-year-old man was killed after gunfire erupted at around 2:20 a.m. Medics from ‘CHOP’ rushed him to the hospital where he later died. A second shooting happened about a half hour later and a block away. That shooting victim, who’s 33-years-old, remains in critical condition in the ICU at Harborview.

Mayor Jenny Durkan eventually issued a prepared statement at around 6 p.m. Sunday, nearly 40 hours after the shootings. It said, in part:

Working with (Seattle Fire Chief Harold) Scoggins, (Police Chief Carmen) Best, and other city departments, the city will continue to make changes on Capitol Hill in partnership with black-led community organizations, demonstrators, small businesses, residents, and trusted messengers who will center de-escalation.

Well, up till then, all she had said about the protests was that Seattle would have a “Summer of love”.

The “Summer of Love” in Seattle.

Another man shot, it’s a battle.

So it is with Police.

If locked out, there’s no peace.

For Bolshevik CHOP life means little.

A swan song Ode to Nancy Pelosi

Since Nancy Pelosi again became speaker

she worked all the time to make our country weaker

Protect the deep State!

Impeach and spew hate!

As always the Democrats future looks bleaker.

When Nancy Pelosi becme speaker of the house the first time in 2007 I penned

Ode to Nancy Pelosi, Limerick style.

Since Nancy Pelosi took over the gavel 

Was our economy quick to unravel.

 She is more than bad,

The worst that we had.

We finally stopped contemplating our navel.

.

Since Nancy Pelosi took over as speaker

Our job situation has gotten much weaker

 All jobs that are lost

Since she got the post

And as for advise, shame to all who still seek her.

.

For Nancy Pelosi, Majority Leader

The Chinese exploiters a life-line did feed her

Our debt load increased

Four trillions at least

We all must this fall go and vote to unseat her

.

For Nancy Pelosi, known Tea Party hater

Gets scared when the grandmothers start to berate her

It does go to show

That she doesn’t know

The Tea Party is a great hate dissipater.

Then in the 2010 election she lost the majority, which led to this verse

Oh, Nancy Pelosi, she fondly remembers,

she only lost sixty-three Democrat members.

And it doesn’t compute,

as a leader astute?

Her party is burning, it’s ashes and embers!

But in 2018, at the age of 78, the Democrats again gained control of the House of Representatives and reelected Nancy Pelosi as speaker, which led to this verse, being much the same as the top verse of this ode.

When Nancy Pelosi again became speaker,

the ravage of time showed it made her much weaker

and how nervous she looked

for her goose is soon cooked.

The Democrats future is looking much bleaker.
