85% of COVID Deaths Could Have Been Avoided, Says Dr. Peter McCullough
"Peter McCullough with Joe Rogan saying that 85% of deaths attributed to COVID-19 could have been prevented with early treatment. Play cut 38. I testified in the U.S. Senate, November 19th, 2020, I told Americans under oath, that 50% of the lives at that time could have been saved. We are at about 250,000 deaths. Based on what I do, I then testified on March 10th, 2021 in the Texas Senate. Sworn testimony, I upped 85% of the deaths could have been avoided. We know that, because we carried out studies we did one with Procter and douse Fort Worth, where we demonstrated that even the early primordial protocols before the monolith coronal antibodies when we used drugs in combination, were associated with 85% reductions in hospitalizations and deaths compared to fair compared to our groups in for death we used the trichina area in DFW averages age adjusted.

"Thirty six. Welcome back to the specialist studios. I am tanner schmidt. Happy to be with you on this thursday morning Kid coming up thirteen days. Thirteen teams eating reds day. High school athletics back in the swing of things and college. Athletics getting there as well was able to attend the unc media day yesterday the day earlier this week as well Some breaking news from yesterday right that we talked about. Csu mandating now not just masks but vaccines we bring in miles bloom heart with the fort collins colorado miles where you've taken aback by the news or is this something you've thought was coming. I kinda figured this was coming. You know giving that given that it's happened across the united states. i think that's Yeah i think it was coming. All along i i again. I will always preface this by saying public Public education administrators have very very difficult. Job right now and so. I don't know that i. Can you know criticize. That are whatever. It's just a very difficult situation but I think the thing that was kind of shocked me was the august eighteenth deadline. I hadn't even seen that yet. So you're telling me we have. People have six days to get this done. And that is would be my concern. I think a lot of these other places the business entity that i usually give people about three weeks You know at least. I think it's probably to get your first shot if you if you take the to shot of vaccination. I think that's a pretty short timetable. Not that the. Vaccinations aren't readily available. My concern would be. Does it fit into your schedule and I guess maybe you're just making people make that decision to to fit it into their schedule. The i suppose so. It's it's bizarre to me. And here's the thing. I mean i didn't. I wasn't really shocked. Either when this came out. the timing of it surprised me just a little bit But they had come out and said remember what it was a joint statement with c. You way back in. I believe it was in march or somewhere around that time. That said we're going to require. If it's fda approved that was the big thing and now it seems that they have completely taken that away and know that we're looking like that could be coming soon. But i'm surprised that they changed that. I think the last time i saw. He thought maybe pfizer. By the end of this monthly. Be optimistic. I don't know that the other ones You know i. I don't believe they are closer but that kind of surprises me Again a up you know fully it. I am vaccinated I i just. But i find that very difficult I think it was probably a very difficult decision for you. To make as well is bizarre. I mean this is. This goes for media members as well On that press release came out and to be honest. I i've had this argument with with some people. And and i still say look i mean. A lot of people are putting this comparison out there that i've been seen it said. Look it's just like stopping at a stop light. We put stoplights in so you don't kill someone else. Okay but you're not injecting stoplight. Into your body right. This is something that has been around for a relatively short amount of time. And i personally hate the pressure for somebody or the judgment on somebody for personal. Decision understandable understandable. I freely told people. I got the vaccination for hopefully freedom of movement My own health. I think there's a small risk of getting it. But i don't want to get it and more importantly i don't wanna get it and spread it to anybody but i understand. I don't get the flu. Shot which i probably should but i don't but i totally understand. It's a personal decision. And i think the problem is is you know. I don't know if our vaccination rate is gonna go up a whole lot. Because i think this actually puts more pressure on people and i think some of those people are just gonna say absolutely not. I'm not gonna get yeah i. We're talking about two miles. Bloomer with the the collins colorado and hear about csu's mask mandate and and the vaccination rate and this is the thing you know. Stephen is yo- came out and said look the football teams at ninety nine percent of vaccinated. And and this and that and Was talking with Actually a former major league player in and he starts going off about while you're part of a team. We need to just go get the vaccine. But couldn't the argument be made look ninety. Nine percent of them are vaccinated. That keeps them healthy. If this is my decision to make then in it's on me it is You know the one thing that i thought was interesting was On these teams as we saw with north carolina state in the college world series. Is you know You know there's enough Internal ongoing on these teams and this adds another pressure. what if you don't want to get vaccinated but however then you do put your team out risk on maybe football game Which we saw happen last year and and probably will happen again this year i if it is such an extremely difficult and personal decision and it is in winter. Wheat just admitted. That's where we're going to be ad and we move forward because Miles you've reported on cova a lot throughout all of this but The cdc there's some information that we're missing in terms of okay. What is the transmission rate from people who have been vaccinated. We're just in a weird time. We're just in a weird time of this virus in a weird time probably history. Yeah i here's what i think is is and i think joe parker sent this message out. I think he's concerned. Because even even though you can you know you can come to. Moby arena canvas stadium. The the mask wearing. I think is is probably going to hurt attendance and after last year would happen. I think It's a it's a big financial crunch on places like yes you and other universities and i think joe is concerned and i think he should be concerned because the last thing politics is less participation less fan participation. No that's absolutely right. And and that's why they built that big big stadium right and if we come out there year in the if the mask it goes into place there and and and all goes into. You're going to see. I would imagine you're gonna have to probably see enrollment dip as a whole in general But then the attendance of things. What's gonna look like especially for for college. Kids that say why vaccinated. Why why the hell do i need a mask. And i think that's one of the things why people got vaccinated right. That's i mean that's one of the reasons is because you don't mask wearing is again you know it. Is it a hindrance to what extent it depends on the person but there are those people that hey i don't want to wear the mask. I got vaccinated. I don't wanna wear the mask but if you look you know the lines to get into like canvas stadium or the concession stands restrooms and then you know you have to do not wear your mask when you're sitting there outside at canvas dating but you have to put it on at the concession standard and the restroom. I'm not really sure to be quite honest. It's going to be bizarre miles watching it all unfold. We're talking the miles bloom heart out of the colorado and and like i said it's been it's been such a weird weird year and going back a year. It was a year ago. Friday.

"That number is astounding for the state because it surpasses the total early voting turnout from any other presidential election there, and this record turnout could be the latest sign of a changing Texas. Joining us to break this down is Alana Roach on a multi media reporter with the Texas Tribune. Hi, Alana. Thanks for having me. Yes. So early Voting records have been broken in two counties that are very different in terms of size and voting history and demographics. What does that tell you about the enthusiasm for voting this election in Texas? There's a unique determination. It seems maybe not just in Texas, but obviously that's what we cover, and we're definitely seeing here for people T cast their ballots. This election. Of course, the pandemic we believe is driving a lot of the early voting turnout. People want to avoid crowds. One avoid exposure to the virus. And so you're seeing that across the state and as you mentioned two very diverse Counties here in the state Politically, Denton County up near Dallas, in North Texas. And then, of course, Harris County that's home to Houston. Course. The big Cities here have tended to lean Democratic in recent years. Denton County is the conservative stronghold. So you're seeing no matter the politics. People definitely want their voices heard and Heard early the cycle to your earlier point. We've heard anecdotally from other places around the country that what's driving people to the polls in record numbers is a feeling that Ah lot more is at stake this election. What are the reasons you're hearing in Texas? It's a mixed bag. Of course, it's partisan, depending on you know the candidates on what issues there. Hi landing on the campaign trail for Republicans they are talking about, you know, back the blue and and saying that you know Democrats when I defund police Department, so that's kind of a rallying cry on the right on the left. You're seeing healthcare a big talking point. For those, you know all the way from the state house to you know, congressional races. How much do you think in state migration is influencing? Perhaps the changes that you're seeing in terms of voting early voting numbers. That is, ah factor for sure on we've seen that just because the state added 1.8 million voters since the last presidential election in 2016, But the numbers show that you can't just attributed to population growth there. Isa riel, enthusiasm and, you know, drive for people to get to the polls. And, yes, Migration has some to do with that. And we saw that really highlighted in 2018. When you saw normally you know Republican stronghold counties in the suburbs. Flip and a vote for Democrat But the Rorke over the incumbent U. S. Senator Ted Cruz will be diving into the Texas Senate race elsewhere in the program, But it's worth noting. Ah lot of heavy spending from both sides. Up and down the races. The ballot race is there's a lot of outside money coming into Texas to what are you saying? Yeah, Just this week we published a story and others about Michael Bloomberg investing heavily here in Texas in this final week before the election, some $15 million in TV ad spending, and that's not just for the Senate race, not just for the presidential race. I mean, he's also looking again at the State House, where Democrats, especially given now the solid conservative majority on the U. S. Supreme Court, state Democrats see having a say in or control rather one of the chambers here in the state as their way to mitigate what they see is bad legislation before it gets to the court system and could be elevated to the highest court where they are at a disadvantage now. Well, what do the polls show about the state of the presidential race in Texas? How close is it? Yeah, well as far as the race for president, I mean it's within single digits are recent poll The Texas Tribune with the University of Texas showed Trump beating Joe Biden by five points or within five points, and it's Yeah, matter of looking at trends, and the majority of the polls do show Donald Trump still ahead here in the state, but within single digits, he won by nine points. 16, which was the smallest margin of victory for a Republican here in quite some time in the state mind you has an elected a Democrat president since Jimmy Carter and 76, so we'll have to see There's also the race for the electoral college votes here with the second largest prize in the country. When it comes to electoral college votes in 2016, You saw two electors defect and there was a push from the governor to be able to have Texas become the 30th state in the country to bind the electors to the popular vote in the state and fell short. We're still not one of the 29 states that bind the electors to the popular vote. But the thought here is that if Biden were to take Texas it's not going to be the deciding state. If you will, a CE Faras, putting him over the top to get into the presidency If he wins Texas, it's more of a sign that it's just a landslide for Biden nationwide. Ilana Rocha is a multi media reporter with the Texas Tribune. Thank you so much. Thank you. And let's get a view of the race in Washington state. It's a deep blue state.

"Into Friday. Texas Senate last night passed and then sent to the governor the so-called born alive, Bill, Charlie. This is the signature abortion restriction of the twenty nineteen session. We have to have what every session. So Republicans can go back when its primary election time and tell the base of the Republican party, which is strongly, antiabortion, how much they have done for them in Austin, this Bill, would according to state Senator, lowest course to brenham who's the Senate sponsor. It's designed to protect babies survive a bungled abortion at our alive in the abortion clinic operating table. Not only would it require that what they call a doctor patient relationship exists between that a baby that's been more alive and the abortion physician, but it would include very, very strict penalties, including up to ten years in prison, plus liability for civil lawsuit for doctors and all medical personnel who happened to be in the abortion clinic. At the time that this baby is born alive because the abortion was botched, the Senate approved the Bill twenty one to ten to Democrats, Eddie, Lucio, Brownsville, and should Assefa eighty of Laredo joined the Republicans and supporting this Bill. They both represent the very, very overwhelmingly Catholic Rio Grande valley, part of the state where there hasn't been an abortion clinic in operation for probably decades. So that's not surprising. Now goes to the governor who will certainly sign it probably with all sorts of publicity opponents say this is essentially a solution in search of a problem. They cite a state health and human services department figures as showing since two thousand thirteen when they began keeping records of this, there have been a grand total of zero babies born alive after bungled abortions in Texas at abortion, is a pretty routine procedure, and according to the law, it cannot be done when you're well, into the third trimester, which is when both most babies are viable. To be born anyway, they say, what this is, is an attempt by antiabortion Republicans in the legislature to try to make abortion less available by intimidating doctors into not working in abortion clinics. The doctors are afraid that a routine medical procedure might be misinterpreted. If you've got a very gung-ho pro-life district attorney in that county, for example, something that they do routinely might be interpreted as violating this law, and all of a sudden, they're dragged into court, and they're facing ten years in prison. And a lot of doctors would say, you know, something I don't think so. I think I'll practice someplace else. And if you don't have a physician, you can't operate the clinic, and that is, according to opponents, the main goal of the border, live Bill Boorda, live bills are popping up all over the country. You'll recall there were very high profile defeats of born alive. Bills in New York and in Virginia earlier this year as well as in the US congress, and then Republicans are able to say that the, the democrat. Rats who oppose this support infanticide, and they're able to raise money off of that. But right now, this looks like it has one more. Visit back to the house, because the Senate added an amendment to say that doctors not only have to provide emergency medical care to children who live following a bungled abortions, but also in cases of premature birth, which I think most doctors do anyway. But the house has to agree to that, then it goes to the governor at its next step will be the courts because this will just like every other abortion restriction that has been passed by the Texas legislature said, three publicans gained control back in two thousand three Welby challenged in the courts and its future.

Mr Chairman that would be a, you know, a decision that the doctor physician and the women understand that I'm asking you. If you're Bill allows that my Bill would allow that. Yes. There you have it. And it even comes through more clearly when you have video with it. But it almost sounds to me like MS TRAN is a shamed of this Bill, and she damn well should be. And she later apologized. I think yesterday for not even reading the Bill before she introduced it not even reading the Bill before she introduced it. And guess what I read it yesterday. It's only seven pages long seven pages long and half of that is where the old law is lined out. That's how legislatures do this didn't even bother to read it. Well, she Senate Email to our constituents Wednesday night apologizing for introducing this thing without even reading it. Here's what she said. Quote. I made a mistake. And all I know to do is to admit it. Tell the truth and let the chips fall where they may close quote. You know, Representative TRAN maybe next time Yata read the darn thing. Well, you know, what she talks about the truth? Here's what I think the truth is she saw and heard all the cheering in the New York legislature when they pass their Bill, I think the day before and she wanted to be the first on her block to outlaw liberal and out feminized everyone, and she didn't even bother to read the darn thing. She just introduced it. Because she wanted to be the first one on her block that could say she introduced this depraved measure, and it's emblematic of the Democratic Party. They're rushed to the radical left. Just how far they can push the envelope. And the flood gates are now open, folks. But that wasn't the end of it for. The Virginia legislation governor Ralph Northam, and again, if you turned on the news last night, you know, that he is in big trouble for posing a very racist. Add in one thousand nine hundred eighty three more about that later. But this governor before that blew up appeared on a Washington radio station to defend MS TRAN and listen to what governor north said grant, could you hit that please? There was a very contentious committee hearing yesterday when Fairfax county delicate Kathy TRAN made her case for lifting restrictions on third trimester abortions as well as other restrictions now in place, and she was pressed by Republican delegate about whether her Bill would permit an abortion, even as a woman is essentially dilating ready to give birth and she answered that it would permit abortion at that stage of labor. Do you support her measure in in explain her answer? You know, I wasn't there Julian I certainly can't speak for delegate TRAN, but I will tell you one first thing I would say this is why decisions such as this should be made by providers physicians and the mothers and fathers that are involved. There. Are you know, when we talk about third trimester abortions? These are. Done with the consent of obviously, the the mother with the consent. Of the physicians more than one physician, by the way. And it's done in cases where there may be severe deformities. There may be a fetus that's non bible. So in this, particular example, if a mothers in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen. The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable the infant would be resuscitated. If if that's what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother. I still it still makes me cringe. Every time. I hear it recess a Tate the baby if that's what the mother wants. If she doesn't. Let's just leave this baby. This human being on the table to suffocate and die. It is stunning in its depravity. And here's the kicker, folks. Governor Northam is a pediatric neurosurgeon a can't get any worse. And of course, as you would probably expect this issue was not even being covered by the mainstream media intil last night until yesterday when the other bombshell allegation about the racist pictures about this governor broke not one word, not one word. And of course, this is in stark contrast to the. Avalanche of coverage whenever estate passes legislation that the media deems as credentialing access to an abortion in an analysis by the media research center, a very respected organization found that at least as of Thursday this New York act that happened earlier in the week did not receive one second of airtime on ABC CBS CNN or MSNBC not one second. It brought this other incident. To get this thing to be covered. And you can contrast this just for example, two thousand thirteen when the Texas Senate was considering an antiabortion Bill that would have criminalized abortion after twenty weeks, those same networks, you can bet your life fell all over there. Salves to cover that. And you know, that's just the way it is with the mainstream media and make no mistake about this Americans are adamantly opposed to this procedure. And I'm not just saying this. I'm gonna tell you. Why a recent Gallup poll found that sixty percent of Americans believe abortion, generally should be legal during the first three months of pregnancy. Which of course, is known as the first trimester. Now that sixty percent support drops to twenty eight percent wants a pregnancy reaches the second trimester. And listen to this. It falls to thirteen percent in the third trimester. At which point the fetus is often viable with medical support. So only thirteen percent of the people in this country support this yet, the Democrats are falling all over themselves in the. State legislatures to enact this and even some liberals, and I've heard a couple of them this week say this goes too far. People. This is sad. This is wicked. This is evil. And yes speaker Pelosi. This is immoral and let me ask you this. Have you heard any of the twenty plus people running for the democratic nomination for president denounced this I haven't but the twenty or so that are running. They sure weighed in last night with the racist pictures that governor Northam was caught being involved in and actually being in. So you know, and not to minimize that it's bad, but the killing of human being on a table after being delivered. We got no problem with that. But we're going to get all jazzed up about a picture from thirty five years ago. So let's just look at this. This is where the Democrats are. Now a wall to protect Americans at the southern border. That's immoral but terminating. They like to say I'll say killing a baby after the baby is delivered as governor northbound suggest, that's okay. And folks, I challenge anybody listening to debate me on that. That's exactly what is happening. And here's my question to you are people in this country paying attention to this can they put their darned cell phones and laptops, away for a minute. And think about this for a minute. I mean, what is happening in this country. There's a word for this. And it's called infanticide and infanticide is murder, of course, governor north and again, this is before his other problem blew up yesterday said what they all say, oh, I was taken out of context, and he tweeted out yesterday again before the you know, what hit the fan on his other issue. I have devoted my life to caring for children and any insinuation otherwise. It's shameful and disgusting. Well, governor with all due respect, sir. We don't need any context to what you said. It's very simple. Let me repeat it. If a, quote, if a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen. The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable the infant would be recess. A tainted f that's what the mother and family desired, if that's what the mother and family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother close quote discussions about what governor Nathan. We all know what you meant. And it's truly tragic, and it's repulsive and God help the United States of America. That's what I think. I wanna know what you think seven four nine seven thousand one eight hundred the big one are the numbers. Mike Allen, Saturday midday acceptable reasons for missing, Ian, rocky show, you were knocked unconscious by a rogue.

Right. And and help chase down the suspect. And and and kinda carried out that pursuit with with another guy who happened to be driving by so that he had been involved now sort of this unwanted hero.

Election 2018 Review: What Happened and Why?
"Election two thousand eighteen review the midterms are over in its official. We have a split congress on Tuesday. Democrats retook control of the house of representatives while the Republicans strengthened their lead in the Senate beyond Washington. Democrats won several high profile governors races many in the midwest. But they lost their bid for governor in several other states, including Florida and Georgia at a press conference Wednesday, President Trump minimized Republican losses saying the GOP faced opposition from well-funded candidates. Adding that those who want did so because they embraced his agenda candidates who embraced our message of low taxes, low regulations, low crime, strong, borders and great judges excelled last night. The president also expressed hope for bipartisanship between the two parties. Hopefully, we can. All work together next year to continue delivering for the American people, including on economic growth infrastructure trade lowering the cost of prescription drugs. These are some of the things that the Democrats do want to work on. And I really believe we'll be able to do that. Let's talk about why the elections turned out the way they did what a divided congress means. And the impact that that'll have on President Trump and his agenda. Joining us from Washington is Wall Street Journal, executive Washington editor Gerald cyb, Jerry, first of all didn't this election show that the country remains as divided as ever, you know, young people suburbanites women, they went for Democrats while rural voters white men went for Trump in the GOP. Yeah, I think that is the bottom line here. It is an electric that looked in many ways awful lot like the one in two thousand sixteen that elected Donald Trump where Hillary Clinton won the popular vote and Donald Trump want the electoral college, that's kind of what we had here. You had a blue coalition in the suburbs in among women and young people who wanna. A lot of marginal house seats, and that's what gave Democrats control of the house, and you had a Trump coalition that seems more solid than ever in rural areas small towns and some of the excerpts around the big cities that held in place in. That's why the Republicans managed to win Senate seats in places like Texas, and Indiana, and Tennessee and the net result is you said is a split verdict. But that's what the country is it split right now between those two visions of politics. The kind of the Blue Wave a coalition and the red Trump base coalition. That's what we'll be dealing with in Washington for the next two years as a result. But on the other hand, Jerry this election didn't seem to produce the Bluewave that a lot of people said might carry the Democrats to victory in both chambers. No, that's true. And the reason that didn't happen was that some of the closest most important at least most politically charged races. Didn't go the Democrats way. And that means Beto Arocca democratic congressman did. Not defeat incumbent Ted Cruz in the Texas Senate race that would have been a shocker Democrats almost. But then in the end didn't win a big Senate seat in Florida and the governor's race in Florida, and they almost had kind of historic candidate Stacey Abrams African American woman a win the governor's race in Georgia. But she apparently has not won that race. And so all of those races would have turned a good night for Democrats into a great night for Democrats, but they came up just short on all of those. And that's the frustration for Democrats right now, they had a good night. But not a great night. And it also means on the other hand for President Trump. He just needed to avoid complete disaster in this election, and that sort of what happened he lost control of the house to the Democrats. Everybody expected that didn't lose it by the same margin that some past presidents have lost seats. Brock Obama in twenty ten lost a lot more house seats for his party and his first midterm after election than Donald Trump will. So the Republicans can say, well, we skirted disaster you meant. And some of the key races. Jerry talk about some of the other ones that stood out to you. You know, there were some interesting early ones on the house side that led Democrats to think that well, we're on our way to that giant Blue Wave.
Cruz, O'Rourke face off in fiery first Texas Senate race debate
"Republican Senator Ted Cruz and democratic congressman Beto O'Rourke held their first debate in Texas Senate Friday night, the two men squared off in Dallas Friday night disagreeing over race and policy. If we have the largest prison population on the face of the planet and is disproportionately comprise of people of color. We have something wrong. That was a Rourke. Here's Republican Senator Ted Cruz rhetoric divides us on race it inflames hatred. We should be bringing people together. Instead of suggesting the police are risking their lives to protect all of us. The Texas Senate race once looked like it would be an easy reelection victory for the conservative incumbent it now appears to be anything. But.
