I recently had a conversation with a reasonably well-informed writer who simply missed the real reasons why most practicing physicians go along with the Fauci Fraud. As a public service, I will attempt to fill in a few gaps. But first, I must define the fraud.
There are two basic legs to the fraud.
First is the idea that the Centers for Disease Control is in any way concerned with a mission related to its name. The failure of the CDC to endorse any treatment that did not emanate from its exalted halls should give us our first glint of clarity. There are literally millions of physicians around the world, and the great bulk of them truly wish to treat their patients well. Among those are thousands of researchers, a number far in excess of those at the CDC, the NIH, and other alphabet soup government agencies. The very idea that outside researchers are incapable of discovering anything useful without the help of the bureaucrats in D.C. is hubris of the highest order. And it prevents the CDC, the FDA, or any other such agency from considering the idea that maybe, just possibly, there might be intelligent life down here. Mount Olympus cannot be threatened.
second leg of the fraud is less visible to the naked eye but much more
powerful. If I wrote this before I retired, I would be called before
the Board of my group and told in no uncertain terms to shut up. I
might even be assessed a financial penalty with several zeroes after the
one. That's a serious impairment of my pursuit of happiness. The
reason for my group's dislike is more than the fact that I might be an
irritant. They may actually agree with what I have to say. But they
simply cannot afford for me to say it. That's right: as a practicing
physician in a group, my freedom of speech can become very
expensive...to the group.
My group cared for patients of all descriptions, with roughly half of them on Medicare and another batch on Medicaid. Both programs are ultimately managed by the feds, one of the most humorless groups on the planet. They write a whole bunch of rules on how you have to document everything you do. If you didn't document it correctly, it didn't happen, and you won't get paid. But that's not the half of it.
Suppose you have one of those patients brought in by the ambulance from under the bridge. His only clothes are the ones he's wearing, and he doesn't have two nickels to rub together. It's more than obvious that this surgery for bowel obstruction will be a charity case. Before Medicare, you'd simply write it off as your good neighbor duty. Now you don't get a choice. CMMS (the actual administrative agency) requires you to send a bill. Twice. Or maybe three times. Whatever it takes to turn the bill into bad debt. Then you have to send it to a collection agency. Your only alternative is for your group to bring it up in its Board meeting and declare it a write-off that gets noted in the minutes..........But what does that have to do with ivermectin? I'm glad you asked............
The financial risks may be extreme. It takes a spine of steel to stand up to the authoritarian orthodoxy................To Read More....
