PANDA Policy Review: Covid-19 Vaccines

Mass public-health measures always involve a trade-off between expected benefits and known and potential risks or harms. Harms include both short-term and long-term or inter-generational harms (e.g. poverty). Separately, they must at all times comply with basic human rights requirements. These fundamental realities have been ignored in much of the public-health response to the Covid-19 event, including mass vaccination.

ACTION ALERT: TELL CDC to STOP Experiment on Children

TAKE ACTIONS NOW: Come out strongly against this dangerous experiment for children TODAY!

Children are not at significant risk for morbidity and mortality from Covid but exposed to disastrous risk of mRNA shots reported by VAERS.

In fact, perhaps 80% of children already have some protection from previous COVID infections and children have a 99.98% COVID survival rate.

Toby Rogers reports:

The CDC has scheduled a special two day of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) to rush approval of mRNA shots for kid on Friday, (June 17) and Saturday (June 18). The agenda is here:

DAY IN DC FOR THE GOOD OF PATIENTS-empowering physicians to put patients first.

In the Oath of Hippocrates, physicians promise to work for the good of their patients, according to the best of their ability and judgment, and to do no harm. We support a return to this ethic in American medicine, and oppose policies that harm patients by subjugating care to the interest of the government and third parties.

Reform Issues:

  • Overregulation and mandates restrict access, stifle innovation, impede transparency, block competition & raise costs.
  • Fraud, waste, and shortages are rampant because special favors to middlemen.
  • Employer-based and government-run insurance discourages rational insurance practices.
  • Medicare and Medicaid are bankrupting the federal government, states, and doctors.
  • In the era of COVID, the consequences of usurping of patient and physician autonomy and freedoms are becoming increasingly apparent and dangerous.

Proposed Solutions: to protect freedom, increase options, encourage competition, and unwind unsustainable spending.

  1. End mask, vaccine, and other mandates and policies that intrude on patient autonomy. This also includes protecting Americans from World Health Organization policies that too often become mandates.
  2. Protect physician and patient freedom of speech in all venues, including the Internet. The government and media must not limit legal speech and must be transparent about their sources of funding and control. (See Texas HB 20.)
  3. Protect physician and patient autonomy in treatment and vaccination decisions. Early treatment for COVID saves lives and should not be improperly blocked by government or other bureaucrats. See AZ SB 1416 and MO HB 2149). Vaccine mandates are hurting vulnerable patients at low risk for COVID and must end. (See FL HB 1B, 3B, 5B, 7B).
  4. Protect due process rights of physicians who too often face retaliation, simply for advocating for patients, by employers, hospital administrators, licensing boards, and others who control their ability to practice. Needed reforms include repealing HCQIA’s qualified immunity for sham peer review, reform of the National Practitioner Databank, and rights for physicians employed by private equity controlled corporations.
  5. Work toward independence from China CCP medications, tech, manufacturing, goods and WHO influence.
  6. End regulations blocking alternatives to ACA, employment-based, Medicare, and Medicaid plans, while allowing those who wish to keep their current government plan to do so.
  7. End ACA’s ban on physician owned hospitals. Section 6001 of the Affordable Care Act of amended section 1877 of the Social Security Act to generally prohibited those who know best how to care for patients from running the facilities where care for the most seriously ill and injured often takes place.
  8. Encourage transparency. Health care entities receiving taxpayer-subsidized funds from any source must disclose all prices that are accepted as payment in full for products and services furnished to individual consumers. Transparency by agencies (FDA, CDC, NIH, etc.) that control and influence health policy and treatment guidelines is also paramount. Transparency in training, so that patients know the qualifications of the clinicians caring for them, is also needed as patients are increasingly pushed to obtain care from individuals with significantly less training than physicians. Databases disclosing potential conflicts of interest must include all entities receiving or offering payments (e.g. device and pharmaceutical manufacturers, PBMs, GPOs, hospitals, insurers) not just physicians.
  9. Remove legal protection for kickbacks. Remedy GPO and PBM abuse of safe harbors by encouraging Congress to repeal 42 U.S.C. § 1320a-7b(b)(3)(C) and amplifying HHS-OIG efforts to stop exploitation of 42 C.F.R. § 1001.952(j) and related regulations. Ending kickbacks is a crucial aspect of ending America’s reliance on China for drugs and supplies.
  10. Decouple Social Security benefits from Medicare Part A. Citizens should be permitted to disenroll from Medicare Part A without forgoing Social Security payments. This would immediately decrease government spending and open the potential for a true insurance market for the over-65 population.
  11. Repeal Medicaid rules that decrease Medicaid patients’ access to independent physicians. ACA requires physicians ordering and prescribing for Medicaid patients to be enrolled in Medicaid. This creates barriers for Medicaid patients who seek care from independent physicians but wish to use Medicaid benefits for prescriptions, diagnostics, and hospital fees. This is a particular problem for Medicaid patients seeking treatment for opioid addiction.
  12. Explicitly define direct patient care (DPC) agreements as medical care (instead of insurance) so patients can use their HSAs, HRAs and FSAs for DPC.
  13. Expand Health Savings Accounts (HSAs).  Examples of needed reform include repealing the requirement that an individual making a tax-deductible contribution to an HSA be covered by a high deductible health care plan; increasing the maximum HSA contribution level; allowing Medicare eligible individuals to contribute to an HSA. HSA reform will help end tax discrimination. Individual’s payments for medical care should not be taxed differently than payments made by employers.
  14. End Restrictions on Health Sharing Ministries. Open the door for secular charitable sharing plans. Health Care Sharing Plans engage in voluntary sharing and are not a contractual transfer of risk.
  15. Encourage indemnity insurance and competition instead of managed care HMO plans. No limited networks of physicians and facilities.
  16. Address shortcomings of the No Surprises Act, that unfairly increase insurance company control over the ability of patients’ to access care from the physicians of their choice on mutually agreeable terms and that increase red tape for physicians.
  17. Increase options for addressing pre-existing conditions. Invigoration of competition, by implementing the above changes, would bring a variety of products for patients with pre-existing conditions, including reinsurance, and inexpensive guaranteed issue and renewability protections, and most importantly, lower overall cost of care.

Conclusion: Congress has passed law after law that disrupts the patient-physician relationship, corrupts medical decision making, and increases costs. During the COVID era, overregulation and regulatory capture is a greater threat to our nation than ever.   Harmful laws and policies cannot be fixed by adding new regulatory burdens or further usurping patient and physician autonomy. True reform starts with repealing laws and correcting errors, restoring the freedom, under constitutionally limited government, that made America great.

Will Vaccine Mandates Drive Americans to Launch A Movement for Liberty?

A question has come up about Thomas Jefferson being a Republican.  The party that he was member of was the ancestor to today’s democrat party.  Today’s Republican Party was founded in Ripon, Wisconsin on March 20, 1854, by a group of former Whig Party members who had the goal of stopping slavery from spreading into the western territories.  The new Republican Party also opposed the “tyranny” of president Andrew Jackson who had shown himself to be incapable of dealing with the crisis of slavery.

 I wonder if the continuing vaccine mandates — which liberals have not stopped demanding — will cause a similar new political split.

AAPS just successfully helped win an injunction against the DC vaccine mandate against schoolchildren as young as 11 years without parental knowledge or consent.  AAPS quickly filed an amicus brief in that case at the request of RFK Jr’s group, Children’s Health Defense.  The judge based his ruling on federal preemption by the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 (NCVIA), and on limited religious rights of parents.

But even while ruling for our side, the judge concluded that “Vaccines are ‘one of the greatest achievements’ of public health in the 20th century.”  Not even this Trump-appointed judge would question Covid vaccine mandates. More than half our country rejects the Covid vaccine booster being urged by officials, yet the vaccine tyrants continue to infringe on liberty.  On Thursday, a 2-1 Dem-majority panel of the Fifth Circuit reinstated Biden’s vaccine mandate against federal workers. 

A week ago a doctor asked a great question about whether a vaccine manufacturer might be committing racketeering in trying to silence a prominent critic.  It is an excellent question and it got me thinking:  should someone sue the CDC and FDA for untruthfully imposing the Covid vaccine mandates?  Their misconduct includes:

  • profiting from vaccines through patents, perhaps royalty trusts, and certainly lucrative jobs after leaving office
  • withholding information about the Covid vaccine, as reported by the New York Times
  • failing to investigate the immense harm shown by the VAERS reports
  • lying about and interfering with early treatment because it is an effective alternative to vaccination
  • falsely denying the man-made origin of Covid, which has hampered an effective response

One more interesting fact, Stephen Hahn, the FDA Commissioner until January of last year, within 6 months of leaving office became the CMO of Flagship Pioneering, the venture capital firm profiting from Moderna!

Exemptions: Reasons Not to Vaxx

1. Individual religious exemption (see example).

2. Medical exemption by allergy to comments of vaxxes (video discussion).

3. Unique medical autoimmune exemptions. “Evidence is accumulating that COVID-19 vaccines might induce or exacerbate autoimmune rheumatic diseases.” (citation)

4. Argument that children are essentially zero risk for morbidity and mortality. (citation)

5. Extremely high side effect morbidity and mortality, first year is higher than all vaccines over forty years, combined! (citations)

6. Individual right to body integrity and personal choice.

7. State laws as applicable. (breakdown by state)

8. Federal laws as applicable. (ADA & Religious Exemptions)

9. Constitution and bill of rights. (citation)

10.Vaxx is irreversible – You can always get one later if circumstances warrant, but you can’t undo it. Justice Alito objected that workers were being put “to the choice of their jobs or an irreversible medical treatment.”

Doctors Report Adverse Events for Crohn’s Disease Patients After mRNA Shot

Are COVID-19 mRNA shots safe for patients with Inflammatory Bowel Disease, like Crohn’s?

Certain establishment medical societies “strongly recommend” COVID-19 vaccination for such patients.

https://www.thelancet.com/journals/langas/article/PIIS2468-1253(21)00024-8/fulltext

On the other hand, physicians in the field need to keep a close eye on IBD patients who receive a shot.

One physician reports this case:

Abbvie, the manufacturer of Humira states:

At this time, the safety and efficacy of the authorized COVID-19 vaccines have not been established in immunocompromised persons, persons with autoimmune conditions or persons who take immunosuppressive medications or therapies1 such as HUMIRA. Each patient’s unique clinical circumstances should be considered when managing their HUMIRA therapy and when deciding if a vaccine is appropriate for them.

https://www.humirapro.com/covid19

Not to mention that studies are showing that “COVID-19 vaccine elicits weak antibody response in people taking immunosuppressant[s]” like Humira:

https://medicine.wustl.edu/news/covid-19-vaccine-elicits-weak-antibody-response-in-people-taking-immunosuppressant/

Other physicians are reporting adverse reactions in this population as well.

In The American Journal of Gastroenterology (October 2021) doctors report an “Acute Exacerbation of Crohn’s Disease After COVID-19 Pfizer Vaccine” in a 33 year old male.

https://journals.lww.com/ajg/Fulltext/2021/10001/S2417_Acute_Exacerbation_of_Crohn_s_Disease_After.2421.aspx

And doctors in Japan report on “Inflammatory Bowel Disease Triggered by BNT162b2 mRNA Vaccination for SARS-CoV-2” in a 64-year-old woman.

https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/34922342/

The bottom line is that the jury is still out on many important questions like this during the ongoing pandemic. Physicians must retain the ability to use their professional judgement to treat patients as individuals and not be coerced into the one-size-fits-all protocols pushed by bureaucrats who are not actually responsible for patient care.

Debunking MSM COVID-vaxx talking points

“Your immune system doesn’t interact with your hormones…” claimed Dr. Jennifer Ashton on ABC’s Good Morning America.

Let’s set the record straight:

The truth is that is a global generalization, apparently to justify the mRNA and DNA global experiment. My pun intended but your statement is untrue and unfunny. Where’s #InformedConsent?

With ACE2 receptors in the testis and ovaries, the Spike moves towards them and rest is history. Below are results of the government of Japan demanding data from Pfizer. I hope this clears things up for you @DrJAshton@GMA

You will also remember from medical school, and clinical practice if you actually saw patients, that the immune system continuously performs surveillance on all cells, Including ovarian and testicular hormone producing cells.

Vaccine mediated spike protein from our own cells diverts immune system by inciting inflammation, that interferes with the performance of endocrine cells. This foretells trouble with mRNA and DNA global experiment. @DrJAshton glad we could help.

Insurance Companies Practicing Medicine Without A License – Ordering Doctors to Halt Prescriptions of Ivermectin

It’s an unfortunate fact of life these days that insurance companies deny and delay care. Usually it is high cost procedures and drugs that the managed care bureaucrats seek to discourage with red tape. But now as our nation faces yet another COVID surge, it is low cost generic medications that are on their radar. And not just payment for the medications is on the chopping block, but the doctors themselves.

Case-in-point:

Doctors in New Jersey are getting cease and desist letters from one of the largest “health” plans in the region, Indepence Blue Cross Blue Shield owned AmeriHealth New Jersey. Despite numerous peer-reviewed studies that show benefit, with little risk, AmeriHealth is ordering doctors: “Do not prescribe ivermectin for COVID.”

Does AmeriHealth cite any scientific studies to back up it’s order? No. But rather they cite claims from a drug manufacturer with an expensive competing product, Merck, entities like the AMA who have largely become cheerleaders for the latest politically correct fad instead of advocates for patients, and FDA statements meant to warn the public from taking veterinary-grade products.

And to add insult to injury, AmeriHealth shamefully threatens these courageous doctors helping COVID patients with accusations of fraud and abuse, termination of network status, and career-ending reports to the National Practitioner Data Bank.

While this is more evidence that doctors and patients must excise the middleman from their relationship, it is also excruciatingly clear that practicing medicine without a license needs to end immediately. Patients’ lives are in the balance. Contact your legislators and demand your right to choose and your physician’s ability to practice in your own unique best interest.
