Vaccines & The Politics of Hydroxychloroquine | The New York Times reported last week – Get Ready for a Vaccine Information War – This war could pit public health officials and politicians against an anti-vaccination movement that floods social media with misinformation, conspiracy theories and propaganda aimed at convincing people that the vaccine is a menace rather than a lifesaving, economy-rescuing miracle.
So, we have to ask the question, are vaccines being rushed hastily to market? Are vaccines the safest pathway to health? What if we get a Covid-19 vaccine and half the country refuses to take it? – was the question the report asked. We’ll explore that option and answer that question on the program.
A study, published in the Lancet medical journal, says it showed no benefit for coronavirus patients taking the drugs. The study looked at more than 96,000 people hospitalized with COVID-19, the respiratory disease caused by the novel coronavirus, those treated with hydroxychloroquine or the related chloroquine had higher risk of death and heart rhythm problems than patients who were not given the medicines.
Is this a misinformation campaign with political bias? See for yourself, by listening to the program, and reading the stats in an Op-ed by Dr. Vliet.

Joe Biden & Black America | Democrat Nominee Joe Biden has come under fire for comments he made during an interview with “The Breakfast Club” radio program, in which he said that if African American voters support President Trump over him in November, they aren’t “black.” The backlash was swift and loud:
Kay C. James, “My DNA, life experience, heritage and culture are what define my Blackness. With all due respect, @JoeBiden, you don’t get to define who I am.” Diddy, “Aye bruh @JoeBiden I already told you the #BlackVoteAintFree.” Lawrence B. Jones III “Dude helps write the 1994 Crime Bill & then tries to tell us what’s black?! KISS MY ASS.” Charlie Kirk, “Democrats have never—not ONCE been the party of Black people. Republicans freed the slaves, passed Civil Rights, and constantly fight to get government out of the way of ALL Americans. Democrats only fight to keep the black community dependent on them in exchange for votes, Sick.”
