Dear KAG: 20200723 Information Warfare Open Thread

Q sent us an information warfare message in post 4611:

Camo. Okay, that means using other ways to express QAnon. Do we like “17” or P_R or maybe a different spelling? Cue and queue could work maybe.

I’m wondering if this shouldn’t be VSGPDJT’s theme song after all the attempts to take him out one way or another.

Otherwise, POTUS is starting to remind me of a savvy Tweety Bird or Road Runner outwitting Sylvester and Wyle E. Coyote. No matter what the other side tries, POTUS side steps it.

Meep Meep.

In the meantime, the short and sweet version of “THE RULES” is here borrowed from Tuesday:

Guidelines for posting and discussion on this site were outlined by our host, WolfM00n. Please, review them from time to time.

The discourse on this site is to be CIVIL – no name calling, baiting, or threatening others here is allowed. Those who are so inclined may visit Wolf’s other sanctuary, the U-Tree, to slog it out.

This site is a celebration of the natural rights endowed to humans by our Creator as well as those enshrined in the Bill of Rights adopted in the founding documents of the United States of America. Within the limits of law, how we exercise these rights is part of the freedom of our discussion.

Fellow tree dweller Wheatie gave us some good reminders on the basics of civility in political discourse:

  1. No food fights.
  2. No running with scissors.
  3. If you bring snacks, bring enough for everyone.

Since it is almost the weekend, the reminders are in place to not swing from the chandeliers, wash your hands and face, and be nice to the liberals whether they deserve it or not. Making your bed, OTOH, is optional.

In this reading from the Gospel According to St. Matthew, we find out some things never change.


MT 13:10-17

The disciples approached Jesus and said,
“Why do you speak to the crowd in parables?”
He said to them in reply,
“Because knowledge of the mysteries of the Kingdom of heaven
has been granted to you, but to them it has not been granted.
To anyone who has, more will be given and he will grow rich;
from anyone who has not, even what he has will be taken away.
This is why I speak to them in parables, because
they look but do not see and hear but do not listen or understand.
Isaiah’s prophecy is fulfilled in them, which says:

You shall indeed hear but not understand,
you shall indeed look but never see.
Gross is the heart of this people,
they will hardly hear with their ears,
they have closed their eyes,
lest they see with their eyes
and hear with their ears
and understand with their hearts and be converted
and I heal them.

“But blessed are your eyes, because they see,
and your ears, because they hear.
Amen, I say to you, many prophets and righteous people
longed to see what you see but did not see it,
and to hear what you hear but did not hear it.”

      6 But he that shall scandalize one of these little ones that believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone should be hanged about his neck, and that he should be drowned in the depth of the sea.

      7 Woe to the world because of scandals. For it must needs be that scandals come: but nevertheless woe to that man by whom the scandal cometh.
      8 And if thy hand, or thy foot scandalize thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee. It is better for thee to go into life maimed or lame, than having two hands or two feet, to be cast into everlasting fire.
      9 And if thy eye scandalize thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee. It is better for thee having one eye to enter into life, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire.

      10 See that you despise not one of these little ones: for I say to you, that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father who is in heaven.

      11 For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.
      12 What think you? If a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them should go astray: doth he not leave the ninety-nine in the mountains, and go to seek that which is gone astray?
      13 And if it so be that he find it: Amen I say to you, he rejoiceth more for that, than for the ninety-nine that went not astray.

      14 Even so it is not the will of your Father, who is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.

  3. Hey Q-Treepers,

    I’d appreciate your prayers for a medical situation with my special needs son Josiah. We’ve had some “hiccups” with his anti-rejection meds needed for immunosuppressive therapy due to Liver Transplant. Anyway we got labs yesterday & results today…and the numbers don’t look very good. In fact shortly I’ll be taking him to the hospital where they plan to put him on IV steroids & antibiotics & also do a liver biopsy to see how things look.

    We’ve already had one answer to prayer in that we should be getting a private room so I should be able to stay with him the whole time–Praise the Lord!!! Last time he was in-patient was actually when he got the Transplant in 2013 & he had some challenges when I wasn’t there to assist him during the few times I went to the hotel to sleep. Because of his developmental challenges it’s better for someone to be with him to help advocate & assist with his needs…so if he had to share a room on this stay I would have been limited to just visiting hours. I guess given all the CV insanity, which is excessively hyped here in Michigan, I should be thankful I’ll get to be with him in the hospital at all!

    Anyway please pray that the treatments will be successful & that the liver will calm down & return to normal functioning. Also pray that the symptoms of jaundice & itchiness will abate quickly.

    He’d been doing worse over the weekend with low energy & vomiting & was feeling well enough to go to his job today, which he’d missed on Monday, so I was hopeful that he was enough on the mend now that things could be addressed outpatient, but they really want him at the hospital, so here we are…

    ~~~~~~~
    If anyone’s interested in more details, after we get settled, I’ll be attempting to update his Caring Bridge site here:

He did OK the first night & it remains to be seen how things go tonight. Thankfully not much happens in the hospital on the weekends so things remain at a dull roar. Oh & I did get to sleep in my own bed, which is Way more comfortable than that fold out hospital chair, so “I got that going for me” at least 😉

    3. I hope and pray that Joshua organs calm down, and that rejection issues subside. When you mentioned his liver transplant, it brought back memories of Dr. Thomas Starzl who was the American/global pioneer in liver transplants. I bet you are familiar with his name.

      I almost worked on his liver transplant unit when he was at the University of Colorado – but decided to go off and be a Navy Nurse instead – which had always been my goal. Dr. Starzl went on to the University of Pittsburgh and did wonderful work there – further launching successful liver transplants and dealing with organ rejection problems.

      I was reading through some of your archives of Joshua’s life journey – you are an amazing woman, and your family is strong.

      God Bless you.

        1. Thank you for asking. Been meaning to update as he just left us after a 2 1/2 wk visit. He moved into his apartment this past Friday. He looks and acts healthier than I’ve seen in several years. He is feeling better about many things, and of course, getting out of California was the most important part. He’s says it’s so much better in Atlanta, the people are nicer.

          He is in the process of looking for a job. Any prayers on his behalf would be much appreciated. He has a good resume – Master’s in Public Health, and Dr. of Vet Medicine – but he didn’t practice dog and cat medicine (had worked for the USDA, but they wouldn’t transfer him out of California) – he’s interested in research. If anyone has any ideas or contacts, I’d appreciate hearing. Thanks.

      1. Wow, Lady. Thank you so much for these encouraging words!

        I’m not familiar with Dr. Starzl so would be curious to hear more when our immediate situation calms down. Sounds like you might have quite a few stories to tell of your adventures!

        My mom’s an RN & very identified with her profession. She told me the other day on the phone (before we knew that J would need hospitalization) that she thought God had perfectly prepared me to be just the kind of mom that Josiah would need & that even with her strong nursing background she was certain she couldn’t have handled things as well as I have had this scenario been hers to carry.

        Given a pretty highly critical family of origin dynamic you might imagine how meaningful her words were & are to me. It’s very hard to feel “adequate” when there is no measuring stick to compare to, so we basically try to get by with “doing (what passes for) the best we could with what we had to work with”…

        I Almost headed down the medical doctor path, took the MCAT, but went to grad school for Christian Counseling rather than med school. I became “just” a mom & ironically motherhood was never my dream. God is so good & we have 4 amazingly strong Christian kids who are solid, yet playful citizens.

        In God’s economy I don’t think that whatever “gifts & talents” I’ve been given have been wasted, necessarily. I’ve laid a lot of things down, but so has my husband, & hopefully we’ve sent enough lumber to heaven to get a comfy room in Jesus’ mansions in glory eventually!

        I’m just extremely thankful that we’ll be taking our Four Kids there with us when that time comes to see Him face-to-face! Blessings!!!

        1. Being a “Mom” is probably one of the toughest jobs out there. One has to have a number of skills in many fields. I remember fretting about being a “good” mother – and then a friend told me, it’s not a matter of being perfect, just good enough. That really helped when parenting was difficult.

          Here is just one of numerous articles about Dr. Starzl. I suspect that almost everything involved in your son’s transplant surgery had roots in Dr. Starzl’s early work. It’s clear he was a brilliant man, and his pioneering work and continued research in transplants & rejection form the basis of the successes of today.

            1. I know. He was an extraordinary man. Too soon did he have to give up his clinical work, but his mind was able to continue in the research venue. It was his work in finding ways to stop organ rejection which allowed so much progress in the transplant field. I’m sure some of Joshua’s doctors would immediately know Dr. Starzl’s name.

              Take care. Get some rest. Please tell Joshua many people are praying for him.

          1. I had a slightly different experience in the mom arena, & being a special needs parent is worlds apart from “just” parenting, which is Never easy with even “regular” kids. At one point in the special needs parenting journey I ran across something that implied that being a special needs mom meant that I just needed to be Mom to my special child. I didn’t Have to be his therapist, nurse, doctor, teacher, nor even advocate…

            This perspective was rather liberating because I was always trying to do “everything” I could to help Josiah in pretty much all arenas of life. It got to the point that I got really burned out & overwhelmed with nearly non-stop running about to get his needs better met & my husband, my other 3 kids, & myself (whatever that even means/meant) suffered for it. At the height of the insanity I actually had a 300+ medical destination year (I did massive calculations for tax purposes) & I was present for Everything other than my husband’s handful of dentist’s & doctor’s visits! Some of those “destinations” actually involved 3 appointments (like PT, OT, & Speech Therapy) & that was when dragging around 4 pre-schoolers almost always by myself. Those triple appointments were 3 X per week for quite a while & that meant a minimum of 5 hours of upheaval when adding in transit time on such days. It was overwhelming & exhausting!

            So hearing “permission” to just be “mom” & my duty to love & care for my special child & not go overboard on all the extras was quite liberating. I gave myself (selfishly?) permission to cut back on the therapeutic running around, etc & maybe took a relative hiatus for about a year. Well, without that extra therapeutic support it was possible to see Josiah lose ground, practically before our eyes. It came down like a ton of guilt bricks & the choice was between me having some type of “life” & my son’s improved well-being…I can’t say that I always chose wisely, but I never completely stepped back from being on duty to that degree again, at least not while he was still a minor…sigh…

            Anyway parenting means complex choices & throw special needs into the mix & there are no “right” choices, especially when other kids & a spouse are in the mix. I’m guessing that there are those single parents of just one special needs kid that may make the child their entire world but that’s just not possible with a larger family. But Josiah still got the lion’s share of time, energy, focus, & attention…but given that we were told he’d “never walk nor talk; never read nor write” in the early days, well if you could see him now it’s truly miraculous how far he’s come!!! I hope in God’s economy it was all worth it & that all the other kids are able to walk in forgiveness, as well as my husband & myself, for what was sacrificed in an effort to help Josiah rise above. What we each gave up didn’t make us poorer but richer in Christ, yet wounded…I’m guessing that by working in nursing you at least somewhat Know what I mean…

            1. The most important part about being “wounded” – is that one is resilient. Being resilient makes up for any wounds. – and each member of the family has a role to play, however small or big, each is a member so contributes. Josiah’s needs were/are greater, but as you note, there is a richness to the sacrifices.

              In our family, one of my children has “needed” more, not physically, but emotionally/mentally. It certainly affected family dynamics, and at times, drained emotional resources. But there has also been support and growth among the family members.

              God has Blessed you with wonderful strength. Your family – all of them – are the better for it.

Helping each other & the stronger carrying the weaker (at times) & being replenished & covered by other members of the team so there is respite periodically can make it possible to bear up under an awful lot. God’s Grace is truly sufficient & when it “feels” less so there can be those times in the cave, like Elijah?, where the Lord directly ministers to ones needs & sustains the weary & broken one in mysterious ways, providing all that we need, more than we can ask or imagine…Blessings!

              1. She’s half husky & not sure what else. Her mom was allegedly purebred husky. She’s the smartest & possibly most energetic dog we’ve ever owned & I think about 2 years old now. She went into somewhat a depressive funk when Josiah’s twin Brandon moved out last month. She LOVES B so much so she goes absolutely nuts whenever he stops by, which is not quite weekly thus far.

                She is in her absolute element whenever she gets to go Up North to the Hunting Shack area. It’s got to be her favorite place in the world & she loves running free in the woods!!! (who doesn’t?)

                Her name is Jules, though the vet reminder spelled it Jewels, short for Juliette. The previous owner called her Bailey, which might fit better given her golden coat color, but we always end up re-naming dogs that come to us.

                Kaycee became Shanna
                Maverick became Caspian
                Blackie became Shadow
                & now Bailey became Jules

                I tried to find a close proximity on an image search but didn’t find a good match. She’s golden with a white belly. Long, lean, & very muscular & her hair is laid close down & not puffy. She’s not anything like a Siberian husky. Well gotta run & get back to the hospital 🙂

              3. Thanks, Nikki. I’ll have to check your video later, I’m just falling down exhausted. I gave Jules some old rib bones after getting home from the hospital “tonight” & she’s pretty happy tearing them up…

                I’m pretty frugal & whenever my husband makes ribs, like he did over the 4th, I often make soup from the bones to get most of the meat residue & flavor. So after they’ve boiled for hours in the pot & the bones are “clean” they go to the dog in batches. I’ve been doling them out like every other day after getting back from Up North. Everything was in the freezer before finally doing that rib bone soup so the bones that are left are just now getting a bit gamey. If she found them in the wild she’d probably want to take a roll in them before her feast 😉

    1. Have never read a book by a politico. That said, I am looking forward to the book President Trump has released soon after he leaves office. !00% believe President Trump has been working on a book since inauguration, or earlier.

      If I am correct about the book, it’ll bluntly name, names specifying crooked actions by Rs, Ds, private companies… Will be the world’s best selling book ever, with the exception of the Bible.

      Endless big names called out, all quite factually. Bush clan, Clinton clan, Kerry, Podesta, hussein, Marco…endless list of shitheads.

      Best of all, the book will be 100% factual, with foot notes supporting the book. I’ll pre-order the book.

    1. I agree. People (including me) have said some of these things:

      ►Pres. Trump has to show he cares about public safety. He has to be measured to not lose vital support he needs to win, and to save the country.

      ►Whatever Pres. Trump says, the Left will do the opposite. So now he’s “agreeing” with them on several key points. We’ll see what they do.

      ►Pres. Trump has to be the leader people want re: the China virus. (That’s his term, “China virus.” I like it. 😁)

      But I agree that there is probably something else going on. He has said that a lot will happen in the next 8 weeks, He seems very relaxed abd confident, and is having daily press briefings again. I don’t know… 🧐

        I want to a number of stores and most want people to shop and be/feel safe. That’s what Pres. Trump is doing. Getting people to shop. I’d rather shop with a mask than have it shut down.

        A number of stores were offering hand sanitizer or other options.

        And FYI I hate masks. I know they don’t work.

        But also adding to this Pres. Trump is being a true leader.

    ‘Re-education’, forced labour and surveillance beyond Xinjiang.

    What’s the problem?
    The Chinese government has facilitated the mass transfer of Uyghur and other ethnic minority1 citizens from the far west region of Xinjiang to factories across the country. Under conditions that strongly suggest forced labour, Uyghurs are working in factories that are in the supply chains of at least 83 well-known global brands in the technology, clothing and automotive sectors, including Apple, BMW, Gap, Huawei, Nike, Samsung, Sony and Volkswagen.

    This report estimates that more than 80,000 Uyghurs were transferred out of Xinjiang to work in factories across China between 2017 and 2019, and some of them were sent directly from detention camps.2 The estimated figure is conservative and the actual figure is likely to be far higher. In factories far away from home, they typically live in segregated dormitories,3 undergo organised Mandarin and ideological training outside working hours,4 are subject to constant surveillance, and are forbidden from participating in religious observances.5 Numerous sources, including government documents, show that transferred workers are assigned minders and have limited freedom of movement.6

    China has attracted international condemnation for its network of extrajudicial ‘re-education camps’ in Xinjiang.7 This report exposes a new phase in China’s social re-engineering campaign targeting minority citizens, revealing new evidence that some factories across China are using forced Uyghur labour under a state-sponsored labour transfer scheme that is tainting the global supply chain.

    . . .

    In all, ASPI’s research has identified 83 foreign and Chinese companies directly or indirectly benefiting from the use of Uyghur workers outside Xinjiang through potentially abusive labour transfer programs as recently as 2019: Abercrombie & Fitch, Acer, Adidas, Alstom, Amazon, Apple, ASUS, BAIC Motor, BMW, Bombardier, Bosch, BYD, Calvin Klein, Candy, Carter’s, Cerruti 1881, Changan Automobile, Cisco, CRRC, Dell, Electrolux, Fila, Founder Group, GAC Group (automobiles), Gap, Geely Auto, General Motors, Google, Goertek, H&M, Haier, Hart Schaffner Marx, Hisense, Hitachi, HP, HTC, Huawei, iFlyTek, Jack & Jones, Jaguar, Japan Display Inc., L.L.Bean, Lacoste, Land Rover, Lenovo, LG, Li-Ning, Mayor, Meizu, Mercedes-Benz, MG, Microsoft, Mitsubishi, Mitsumi, Nike, Nintendo, Nokia, The North Face, Oculus, Oppo, Panasonic, Polo Ralph Lauren, Puma, Roewe, SAIC Motor, Samsung, SGMW, Sharp, Siemens, Skechers, Sony, TDK, Tommy Hilfiger, Toshiba, Tsinghua Tongfang, Uniqlo, Victoria’s Secret, Vivo, Volkswagen, Xiaomi, Zara, Zegna, ZTE. Some brands are linked with multiple factories.

    . . .

    Recommendations
    The response to the abuses identified in this report should not involve a knee-jerk rejection of Uyghur or Chinese labour. The problem is the policies that require Uyghurs to work under duress in violation of well-established international labour laws. It is vital that, as these problems are addressed, Uyghur labourers are not placed in positions of greater harm or, for example, involuntarily transferred back to Xinjiang, where their safety cannot necessarily be guaranteed. In light of this report’s findings, we make the following recommendations.

    The Chinese government should:

    give multinational companies unfettered access to allow them to investigate any abusive or forced labour practices in factories in China
    uphold the rights of all workers in China, especially those from vulnerable ethnic minorities, to determine how their labour is deployed and the conditions under which they leave their place of residence
    ratify the ILO International Labour Standards; structure a comprehensive grievance mechanism, including for the investigation of alleged cases of forced labour; provide victims with protection and remedies; and prosecute perpetrators
    uphold the legitimate rights of China’s citizens, including by protecting ethnic and religious rights enshrined in the Chinese Constitution.147
    Companies using forced Uyghur labour in their supply chains could find themselves in breach of laws which prohibit the importation of goods made with forced labour or mandate disclosure of forced labour supply chain risks.148

    Each company listed in this report should:

    conduct immediate and thorough human rights due diligence on its factory labour in China, including robust and independent social audits and inspections. The audits and inspections should include a stocktake of the conditions and current and ongoing safety of vulnerable workers
    if it finds that factories are implicated in forced labour, seek to use its leverage to address improper labour practices. In all cases where harm has occurred, it should take appropriate and immediate remedial action. Where it cannot, it should cease working with those factories
    ensure that it is fully transparent as it seeks to address all potential harms, including by reporting its due diligence and audit findings publicly.
    Foreign governments should:

    identify opportunities to increase pressure on the Chinese government to end the use and facilitation of Uyghur forced labour and mass extrajudicial detention, including through the use of targeted sanctions on senior officials responsible for Xinjiang’s coercive labour transfers
    review trade agreements to restrict commodities and products being produced with forced labour
    identify opportunities to pressure the Chinese government into ratifying the Convention on Forced Labour, 1930 (No. 29),149 Abolition of Forced Labour Convention, 1957 (No.105)150 and the Protocol of 2014 to the Forced Labour Convention.151
    Consumers and civil society groups, including NGOs, labour unions and consumer advocacy groups, should:

    demand that companies that manufacture in China conduct due diligence and social audits to ensure that they’re not complicit in forced labour practices
    advocate for the recognition of continual, multilayered surveillance and monitoring of workers and their digital communications—both in and outside work hours—as an emerging and under-reported indicator of forced labour and an important human rights violation
    push brands to be more transparent about the make-up of their supply chains and the preventative measures they have put in place to ensure forced labour does not occur
    demand that companies make new public commitments, uphold current commitments, or both, to not use forced and coerced labour in their global supply chains and that they act quickly and publicly when such cases are identified.

      And then there’s the worst-kept secret that no one really factors in – Uyghurs are Muslims. BJ Clintoon’s failed policies in Yugoslavia resulted in the US bombing the hell out of one of our allies over there while protecting the Muslim terrorists. The main reason Clinton didn’t know what to do over there is because the plans of the nation-builders required ignoring the truth on the ground.

      Now we have a great president allowing govt officials to trash the CCP on morals grounds even though any serious person knows that there is no place in communism for morals. As long as the govt of China is communist, there will never be any policy that reflects morals as we understand them.

      We are not the Uyghurs’ police force and we should not act like it.

    1. Slow guy can’t understand:
      – Why Priests and pastors don’t simply open their churches and have their services as they did back in January.
      – Why church goers simply go to church as they did back in January.

      grewsome, other guvs and mayors can’t arrest tens or hundreds of thousands.

      Government locks down the church? Cut the locks. Improvise. Hold services outside. RESIST.

      Government should never be allowed to infringe on religious practices.

      Granted, I am not a church goer, so I probably am missing something.

      1. Mark Taylor says they are all slaves to the 503(c) charitable status under the IRS.
        FEAR of loss if they get out of line.

        ALSO another FEAR.
        FEAR of man.

        What if someone got sick and they were blamed.

        1. Guessing 503(c) overseen by Federal IRS. Not states and cities.

          Folks voluntarily attend. No one is forcing them to.

          At some point, folks need to growacet.

          Someone posted a great thought, a concepts a few days ago. FREE WILL.

          Or submit to the MASTERS…governors and mayors…AND BLINDLY OBEY, sheeple.

    Coronavirus Update 7/23/2020 – Bromhexine
    BTHO COVID-19

    So today at the time of this writing there are 71,967 new cases and deaths are at 1,205. That is another very high number of new cases for one day. Nationwide cases are still way up over the past month, going from 26k to now over 70k per day .

    Locally, in Texas cases are still very high. We had 10,581 new cases which while it is low . In addition we had a high 169 new deaths today. With a steady fatality rate of 1.2%. Like we said earlier deaths tend to follow about 3 weeks behind so unfortunately the high number of deaths over the past week appear to be related to the spike in cases over the past month.

    There are 161,956 active cases in Texas. The number of active cases continues to rise at a steady rate. We have risen significantly over the past month. Cases here in Texas along with Covid-19 hospitalizations have risen sharply over the past three weeks but have slowed down some the past few days and went from 10,848to 10,893 today. Luckily this has been stable for the past week. This is very good news.

    In addition in Texas we have 149,524 recovered now.

    Today in Dallas county with 413 new cases and 30 new deaths. Harris county with 1,444 new cases and 15 new deaths. Collin county with 158 new cases and 1 new death being reported. Denton county with 218 new cases and no new deaths. Tarrant county with 871 new cases and 6 new deaths. Brazos county with 35 new cases and no new deaths. Travis county with 603 new cases and 9 new deaths. Fort Bend county with 109 new cases and 3 new deaths. Bexar county with 1,688 new cases and 9 new deaths.

    For the newbies we have been predicting an overall fatality rate somewhere in the 0.3 to 0.7 range when we finally correct the denominator.

    So some people seem confused about the sensitivity part of last night’s post. Having a sensitivity of 50% doesn’t mean that it is a random 50% it is a smaller area under the curve meaning that it just needs a higher viral load to detect the virus. Since the virus replicates at a tremendous rate, if you actually have the virus and test negative it will only be a matter of hours before the paper test will be able to detect the virus.

    Someone sent me this link to a youtube video explaining it well.

    Coronavirus Pandemic Update 98: At Home COVID-19 Testing – A Possible Breakthrough
    Jul 20, 2020

    Here is an interesting article on an over the counter drug not available here in the US but used in other countries called Bromhexine. Bromhexine is an over the counter mucolytic.

    This is a study done in Iran on hospitalized patients. They treated 78 total patients 38 in each group. The treatment group was given 8mg of bromhexine three times per day orally.

    The groups while small appear to have very similar demographic and be pretty evenly matched with symptoms and severity. There were slightly more diabetics in the treatment group so if anything that would put the drug at a disadvantage.

    So what were the results? In the treatment group only two were transferred to the ICU versus 11 in the control group. One in the treatment group was put on a ventilator versus 9 in the control group. Finally, no one died in the treatment group and 5 died in the control group.

    In addition the patients on bromhexine showed improvement in LDH and CRP which are inflammatory markers. So it is believed to decrease inflammation as a mechanism of action.

    The authors conclude that this study revealed the efficacy of early oral administration of bromhexine hydrochloride lead to the reduction of mortality of patients with COVID-19 disease. Patients treated with bromhexine may experience a milder course of the disease, and thus, the need for ICU transfer, intubation, and mechanical ventilation can be avoided. Bromhexine is a very inexpensive, affordable, safe, and over-the counter medication in most countries that can easily be administered in remote and underserved areas. Despite the relatively small sample size and a single-center experience, the results are very encouraging, highlighting a potential breakthrough point in the management of patients with COVID-19 disease if confirmed after verification in large scale clinical trials.

    Here is a repost of the supplements we have discussed to have potential benefits.

    Quercetin from 250mg up to 1g twice per day Remember this is a Zinc ionophore.
    Vitamin D3 Take this for sure if you are deficient and I now recommend taking it as long as your values are not too high.
    Sleep greater than 8 hours per night
    CoQ10 100-300mg per day: a potent antioxidant that potentially helps balance oxidative stress, increase vasodilation, prevent clot formation and decrease vasoconstriction.
    Zinc any amount is probably good but take what you can tolerate without making you feel bad up to 40mg. You do not want to be Zinc deficient as it is how many drugs like HCQ work.
    Melatonin 0.1mg to 10mg at night. Take what you can tolerate and what helps you sleep without making you feel drugged or tired in the morning. If you are diabetic watch your sugars.
    N-acetylcysteine (NAC) – 600mg twice per day shown to decrease severity of influenza, improve lung functions in COPD, antioxidant properties, potentially helps prevent clotting and with mental disorders. Caution for asthmatics as there is potential for bronchospasm.
    Vitamin C 250mg to 500mg twice per day. Effects debatable in oral form but IV did help in China. But is proven to strengthen immune system
    Green Tea either drink some or 1 pill per day alternate zinc ionophore if you don’t have or don’t take Quercetin

    As always the information and understanding of COVID-19 is changing rapidly. This information is for education purposes only and you should never make changes to your health without consulting your personal physician. Make a virtual appointment with your physician and discuss your health and the best possible treatment plan for you. It is also important to reiterate that there are no clinically evidence-based integrative prevention or treatment strategies for COVID-19 infection.

    Let’s all keep praying for all that are ill with this virus in the world.

    Gig’em!

    1. You don’t need an ionophore if you take Zinc Picolinate.

      I’m reading of some interesting responses from those with chronic conditions taking ZP.
      Immune activation (symptoms) and then improvement of condition.

    2. Points out that the rise in Texas numbers are largely a result of what’s happening in Mexico.and to a lesser extant other South American countries such as Brazil and Peru when it comes to medical tourism..
      Mexico surge came very late but arrived here in the U.S. at the end of June and all the southern states with possible exception of New Mexico are feeling it now. Many stories on this but all have to be searched for. Conservative media is afraid to talk about it though the President has pointed out and the MSM is not talking about it because it does not fit their narrative of him loosing control of the CV.

      sample story.

    2. Wonder how much MLB stuff is made by Chinee slave labor? Much like NBA… Many black players making big money off jersey’s made by slave labor. How many of them are wearing hats, uniforms, shoes made by slave labor.

      Could be interesting in the near future.

    3. You’ve heard it before but it’s still worth pointing out. Socialists are largely made up of people getting govt money and then Big Business. The people in the middle, the working class, are the ones that get squashed, parceled off and or bled dry in the give and take.
