The following article, spanning the first 7 or so posts below (too long to fit in one post) was posted on Medium.com a few days ago. The article has now been removed, and the account posting it apparently banned. A copy of this article remains on archive.org , and a supporter of the author Filipe Rafaeli has also republished this article at truthabouthcq.com
This article is the most complete and most accurate presentation I’ve seen so far of what we know about hydroxychloroquine and the covid pandemic.
The article presents a blow by blow tale of how the truth about hydroxychloroquine was suppressed, and the lies promoted.
Not only are doctors and experts who oppose vaccines being murdered if they become too noticed. So is the truth, the honest reporting of what’s really happening and what it might reasonably mean, being murdered.
I had not read this article in its entirety when it first came out a few days ago. But now, when I noticed that Medium.com has banned the article, I read it through, as part of reconstructing it here on theMooster. The global pervasiveness of the fraud is disgusting.
Or, as this chap posted at https://www.labusas.org/threads/liberal-rag-medium-posts-up-article-by-orange-man-bad-proponent.235447/
Yeah, it’s a bit of a long read, but it pretty much explains how we’re being fucked.

Hydroxychloroquine: the narrative that it doesn’t work is the biggest hoax in recent human history
For those who are afflicted with the pandemic, afraid of dying, losing family or friends, I would like to inform you: I am the bearer of good news.

“I do not know Trump or Bolsonaro”, said Didier Raoult, a professor of infectious diseases at the IHU-Marseille, on 24 June, the French National Assembly, when provided a testimonial for a special commission.
There I saw that the teacher has already started to understand the hole that got involved and who were responsible for creating the first wave that fucked him.
This wave, after all, placed him, by chance, as an important piece at the center of the chessboard of the most ferocious geopolitical dispute since the end of the Soviet Union.
In addition to the denial of knowing Trump or Bolsonaro, which is quite fun, where Raoult tried to distance himself from these two demented leaders, the infectologist reported serious things: he suffered death threats soon after proposing the treatment of COVID-19 with hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin, two cheap and generic drugs.
The doctor behind the threats was found. It’s from a university hospital in Nantes. Incidentally, he was the person who received the most money from Gilead, a large pharmaceutical company, in the past 6 years.
Here I propose to put together, piece by piece, the puzzle of what I consider the biggest farce in modern history. I don’t worry about producing a short text. It will have analyzes, including new ones, and from different points of view.
It involves science, healing, politics, geopolitics, mass and group psychology. With the scenario set, it is not difficult to predict good and bad things that will happen in the coming months and years.
Throughout the text, the reader will understand the most important thing: the circumstance of how this false narrative was put together. The reader will also be prompted, by itself, to conclude whether the treatment proposed by Didier Raout works or not.
And you will also understand how the majority of the North American scientific class, from Latin America and Europe, regions of the globe under strong influence from the USA, were directed to an incredibly gross error.
In addition to the facts and figures, which are accompanied by external links, all I write are my own opinions, based on the facts, in first person, from my point of view, of how I see the world going completely insane in front of me.
I am not afraid to sign my name when publishing it, even though I know that the almost unanimity of Brazilian scientists are against the application of these drugs and repeat that “there is no scientific evidence” of the functioning.
And one thing I’m sure will attract attention. The fact that I have to give examples with incredibly basic logic, as if I were talking to children, to explain the facts. It is necessary. The farce has gone so far that I need many examples and analogies to bring reason back.
Signed, I make it available to cover me, today or in the future, if my analyzes prove to be incorrect, after all, it is not a simple or light claim.
In February there is carnival
From China and Europe came reports of large numbers of dead people and entire cities blocked, with people in confinement, preventing the transmission of the coronavirus.
On the top street of my house, in Atibaia, in the interior of São Paulo, 60 km from the state capital, the carnival took place.
For four days, loud music came through my window. I didn’t go to the party, which I do every year. The word agglomeration already bothered me.
It was the end of February, just before the WHO — World Health Organization, declared that we were in a global pandemic of apocalyptic proportions.
I preferred to go ahead and follow the guidance of scientists before government decisions. I was the first in the city to join voluntary confinement.
A few days later I still went to a bar. I thought the risk was low. In airy environments, the risk is less. It was the last time I went to one. It was an open bar, something normal in our tropical climate, where half the people are on the street and the other half inside the establishment.
It was the farewell of a musician friend. Samba and jazz were in the repertoire. He was already hired to go to Australia, where he would board a tourist ship. It would be one of the attractions. He was excited. I didn’t want to discourage him, but it was strange that the company was still confident, until that day, that new trips would come out, even with the Diamond Princess case, off the coast of Japan.
I no longer held hands to greet anyone. I ran away from close contacts, always stayed outside, and washed my hands constantly. They laughed and found it strange. Some called me paranoid.
I soon made a bad prediction: that all bars would be empty and closed in a short space of time. I decided not to leave anymore. I didn’t want to be bothered by crowds. I didn’t want to be a joke either. Our state and municipal governments had not yet taken action against the virus.
At home, it remained to read, to follow the news and scientific publications that began to appear frequently. I have a habit, healthy or not, of going deeper into research, and reading studies, when I’m interested in a subject. I don’t like to just wait and see, one or the other news, superficially, in the mass media.
The craze for going to medical research sites to read papers came from a few years earlier. In 2016 I broke a bone in an accident. Practically three months lying, with little mobility, without drinking, and with an IPAD in my hand, I read all the studies on my recovery, to the point that, in a chat, shortly afterwards, with an orthopedist professor at an important medical school, he says he has never seen a patient know so much about his problem. “This one studied more than my students”, he joked with a friend.
Piece 1: the hydroxychloroquine solution appears
March 17, 2020
The study ran the internet. He had this impressive chart. People who took hydroxychloroquine with azithromycin, an antibiotic, made a spectacular and rapid recovery.
By the fifth day, the six patients who received the combination no longer had the virus. The news was so good that I went to find out where it came from.
The differences between the other two arms, control and those who only took hydroxychloroquine, were great.
They didn’t even wait to finish. On the sixth day they already released these preliminary data.
Several scientists signed the study, but the main one was Didier Raoult, from Marseille, in the south of France. I went to research and soon saw that he was not just any adventurer.
Piece 2: Didier Raoult is the leading specialist in communicable diseases in the world
Didier has almost 3,000 articles in Pubmed. This is a resounding number.
According to the Expertscape website, which makes a statistic about studies published in the last 10 years by specialty, he is number one in the world in communicable diseases.
This second prize is not just any prize, like those in cities in the interior that hold contests on the internet for the most sympathetic doctors in public service. It is a cash prize. He took 200 thousand Euros home. This is more than one million reais.
Professor Didier Raoult also received decorations from the French government. He is, since 2015, commander of the National Order of Merit, and since 2011, Officer of the Legion of Honor. One of them is awarded by the President of the Republic of the country. And we all know that France is not a banana republic. They don’t reward imbeciles.
With a brilliant career like this, I decided to keep following. The results were too encouraging to pass up.
Piece 3: the world’s second worst ally liked the idea
========================= Begin Tweet =========================
Donald J. Trump
HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE & AZITHROMYCIN, taken together, have a real chance to be one of the biggest game changers in the history of medicine. The FDA has moved mountains - Thank You! Hopefully they will BOTH (H works better with A, International Journal of Antimicrobial Agents)…
Donald Trump, the president of the United States, is anything but simple. Four days after publication, he went on TV and used Didier Raoult’s study as a confrontation with American scientists. They spared no criticism for their stupidity in conducting the pandemic.
He always hit them head on. Trump is a blundering rotary machine gun. Just to give two examples, on the pandemic, he had said that the common flu was worse. And it unbelievably went so far as to say that the coronavirus was a farce from the Democratic party.
His track record has always been to nurture disdain for science and scientists. He says, for example, that he doesn’t believe in global warming.
But one thing Trump has always known: his policy of confrontation pleases his stupid, increasingly radicalized base, which in order to defend itself against the coronavirus, instead of avoiding agglomerations, is lining up to buy weapons.
How can someone who acts and thinks in this way guide how the solution to a pandemic should be?
Of course, the North American scientific community felt neglected, and with the clash, diminished. They reacted.
Piece 4: hydroxychloroquine’s first misfortune
In his ad, Trump spoke the name of the drug. And hydroxychloroquine, unfortunately, did not need a doctor’s prescription.
What happened? A rush to the pharmacies. Nothing surprising.
Experts were consulted. They said an obviousness that anyone would say seeing the people stocking up on medicines. They warned that everyone should be careful with side effects.
Following, honest journalism, which I would also do. They went to see if Trump had connections with the hydroxychloroquine manufacturers. They found out he had it.
Thus a narrative began to be put together.
Piece 5: US scientists call for calm
Didier Raoult’s study was preliminary. The focus was, at that time, on the six patients treated with hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin who had an abrupt viral reduction. Dr Anthony Fauci, physician and leader of the coronavirus task force in the USA, took the lead. He asked for prudence.
Today, any reasonably well-informed person knows what a complete and impeccable scientific study is, the so-called “gold standard of science”: it is randomized, controlled, double-blind, peer-reviewed and published in a prestigious scientific journal. It was Fauci’s class.
Piece 6: Bolsonaro, the puppet and Trump fan, repeated the solution
Jair Bolsonaro, a far-right politic, is a longing for the Brazilian dictatorship (1964–1985).
He tends to praise torturers of that time, who in addition to being rapists, stuffed live rats into the vaginas of college students. Bolsonaro, behaving like a psychopath, praises these torturers laughing and having fun.
This political aberration was only elected president of the republic due to a fraudulent election that took place in 2018, where the leader of the polls, Lula da Silva, ex-unionist, ex-president, patriot and revered worldwide, center-left, was arrested in a process fraudulent, just so it doesn’t compete.
Lula led the polls even when arrested. The UN even demanded that he be allowed to run and that he have a fair trial. The Brazilian judicial system, behaving like that of a banana republic, ignored the order, even though the country was a signatory to international agreements related to human rights.
This election, in addition to repeating in Brazil the same fake news techniques used in the U.S., which favored Trump’s election, came just two years after a coup in the country. This coup removed Dilma Roussef, from Lula’s party, from the presidency, and was also supported by our class-based judicial system.
The story of this coup was spectacularly portrayed by filmmaker Petra Costa in his documentary “The Edge of Democracy”, an Oscar 2020 finalist and available on Netflix.
