As the pandemic spread across the country, President Trump endorsed the use of a malaria drug as treatment. He later admitted to using the drug as a preventative medicine. The media immediately dismissed hydroxychloroquine—claiming it was actually dangerous. Now, a thorough study has been released, once again proving the president right.
The fear and panic over COVID-19 always seemed out of place. Early on, we learned it was much like the flu, weaker even, as it only posed a threat to the elderly and frail (the flu is deadly to people at any age). The media stoked the flames of terror, compelling our cowardly leaders to issue un-Constitutional lockdowns. They did this even as reports came out that a 50-year-old malaria drug, hydroxychloroquine, virtually cured the disease.
A virus that doesn’t kill 99% of the population—with a known, safe treatment? Well, why shouldn’t we flush our future down the toilet!?
Advocates for hydroxychloroquine were quickly criticized by the media, who know little about medicine. A bogus report came out in the Spring, claiming the drug—used by people around the world to treat and prevent malaria each year—was suddenly dangerous. It’s hard not to believe the left was doing this to discredit the president and exaggerate the crisis.
Now, a new study reveals that Trump was right all along.
The study examined 2,541 patients who had been hospitalized in six hospitals between March 10 and May 2, 2020.
More than twenty-six percent (26.4%) of patients who did not receive hydroxychloroquine died.
But among those who received hydroxychloroquine, fewer than half that number — 13% — died.

In addition to the tremendous success rate, the study’s authors said heart-related adverse effects did not materialize. They went on to bash previous studies that provided less positive, mixed, or negative results becauase they studied “different populations; administered hydroxychloroquine later during illness; used different doses, and/or were not peer-reviewed.” Meaning, they were bad science.
There is a reason the pharmaceutical industry would discourage the use of hydroxychloroquine: it’s cheap and easy to get. The current drug the media is championing by Gilead, remdesivir, costs thousands of dollars for a few days’ worth of treatment.
But why would the media, who don’t have stakes in drug companies, hammer HCQ so hard? I think you know the reason.
Right now, panicking states continue to rachet back reopening efforts because of a “spike” in positive tests. They ignore all the new data that fewer people are dying and those tested positive recover in just a few days. The media has shifted back to hyping up the disease, as the general election gets closer. They are doing everything in their power to scare people back into their homes, so they can’t attend Trump rallies or do anything else related to the election.
And anything that gives Joe Biden an excuse to hide in his basement, is good for them.
The left is ignoring the good news about the disease, because they hope it will affect the election. These petty, ugly, evil con men would have millions out of work and lives upended, just so Donald Trump loses.
Imagine a party so desperate, so pathetic, that they’d let rioters burn their cities while punishing law-abiding citizens for living their lives? But that is the Democratic Party of 2020. They ignore the news that HCQ is a life-saving drug, just to manipulate the election.
I hope you won’t let them get away with it.
