Remember how liberals everywhere lost their collective minds when President Donald Trump announced that he had been taking hydroxychloroquine? Not too long after liberal heads exploded from that admission, leftist Fake News people started touting a study that said that taking hydroxychloroquine was very dangerous. Honestly, I think if Trump said that breathing oxygen was good for you, half of the journalists would kill themselves by putting plastic bags over their heads just to avoid breathing oxygen.
On Thursday, The Lancet, which is one of the world’s most prestigious medical journals, retracted an influential study that raised eyebrows concerning the safety of the experimental (DISEASE THAT MAY NOT BE NAMED) DTMNBN-19 treatments chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine amongst scrutinizing analysis of the data underlying the paper.
An hour later, the New England Journal of Medicine retracted a separate study, centered on blood pressure drugs in DTMNBN-19, that relied on data from the same company.
The retractions came at the request of the authors of the research, published last month, who were not directly involved with the information collection and sources, the journals said.
“We can no longer vouch for the veracity of the primary data sources,” Mandeep Mehra of Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Amit Patel of the University of Utah, and Frank Ruschitzka of University Hospital Zurich all said in a statement issued by The Lancet. “Due to this unfortunate development, the authors request that the paper be retracted.”
The retraction of the Lancet paper is going to increase concerns to arguments about the potential of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine, two old malaria drugs, in DTMNBN-19, which is the product of the Chinese Wuhan virus.
Here’s what really went on. President Trump touted both drugs as potentially useful treatments for DTMNBN-19. Everything in our world, thanks to liberals, has been corrupted. Our science, our economy, our culture, education, everything has been corrupted.
So, because the Fake News media hates Trump, they began pushing against the use of hydroxychloroquine as having an absence of rigorous information displaying the drug has any benefit. Forget the fact that medical doctors around the country and around the world chimed in saying that all of their DTMNBN-19 patients were doing tremendously with the drug, the Left hates Trump, therefore, he has to be wrong in pushing the use of the drug. Many in the loony tunes cable news networks threw out a conspiracy theory that the president owns stock in the company that manufactures hydroxychloroquine, but in the end, the truth came out that Trump’s so-called ownership of stock was found in a federal mutual fund that the government recommends federal employees use, because they aren’t in control of stocks that go into the funds.
The editors of the hugely influential medical journal must have suffered Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) at a level 7, which is the highest know level of sufferers, because they published an article to trash the use of hydroxychloroquine for DTMNBN-19 patients, in a short-run hedonistic furor to trash the president, not caring about the consequences of publishing a lie. Maybe hydroxychloroquine can cure TDS as well?
The Lancet’s hatred of anything that has to do with Donald Trump isn’t hidden at all. They’re out in the open about it. Last month, for example, the rag took the unusual step of publishing a blatantly political editorial calling for Trump’s ouster. I thought science wasn’t supposed to be political.
And it wasn’t the first time the Lancet politicized its pages. Once it did so for the purpose of harming the reputation of a former Republican president, George W. Bush. In 2006, Lancet estimated that the Iraq War ended up with about 650,000 excess deaths, which was broadly questioned, including by the government of Iraq itself, which came out and said that the study had no basis in reality.
Highly regarded people in the medical and scientific communities are supposed to be deep thinkers for science. This latest episode is evermore evidence that some of them have been corrupted by political ideology, and have said to hell with the science.
Liberals like to say that conservatives don’t believe in science. You can hear Nancy Pelosi spouting this all the time. “The president doesn’t listen to the science,” she often says when speaking about the virus pandemic. “The president doesn’t talk about the science.”
Of course, it’s patently absurd to say that conservatives don’t believe in science. They just don’t believe in the junk science of things like global warming and climate change, because there is no real science there, and when push comes to shove, they can’t produce any empirical evidence outside of computer models. I’m a senior programmer in another life, and I can assure you that I can write a program that will produce any data the guys paying me to ask it to produce. Climate change has become a cottage industry of government gravy train wannabes, and it’s more proof that liberalism has corrupted science.

People are coming up with all kinds of excuses for why Lancet would make such a blundering mistake, but the simple truth is leftists are so enraged that Trump won in 2016 that they will risk their reputations just to get some accolades from their fellow leftist TDS sufferers. It’s the most bizarre phenomenon I’ve ever seen.
