What has Happened to the Integrity of Government and the Media?
At one time in our history the media played an important role in bringing news to the masses and holding government and corrupt corporations accountable. Sadly, that all started to unravel sometime in the late ‘80’s or early ‘90’s and has progressed to a point that one must question everything that is said. The integrity of the media has been exposed and their bias is evident.
Saturday March 20th was World Freedom Day. Freedom rallies were held in major cities across the world, in more than 40 countries. In Saskatoon there was somewhere between 1200 and 1500, but you wouldn’t not know it by the media coverage. In Saskatoon, the only television crew that were spotted were across the street sitting on the courthouse steps, the CTV. At some point they took a bit of footage and reported that, “about 100 people attended” while the local newspaper, the Star Phoenix, showed up late in the day and reported that there was, “300 to 400 people.” Straight up LIES! And you wonder why the mainstream media has lost so much respect as an unbiased reporter of the “news.”
A recent Gallup poll in the USA shows that credibility had dropped to an all time low with only 5% of people saying they fully trust the media and a full 60% saying they don’t trust them, with the rest stuck somewhere in the middle.
I have watched with a mix of bemusement and shock at the lack of depth of questions from the local media at press conferences from the legislature. Additionally, the supposed opposition party in Saskatchewan, the NDP, have not asked any of these questions and have proven irrelevant in helping the people of this province during these past 12 months.
So, I decided to play reporter and make a list of questions to ask on behalf of all people of this province.
Dr. Shahab and Premier Moe, these questions are for you:
1. How do you justify reporting the number of cases based on a PCR test when the entire world is aware that the PCR test was never intended for coronavirus detection and the results are extremely inaccurate with numerous false positives, especially when you can control the number of cycles? (Ref#A)
2. When you run tests the number of cases always directly correlates to the number of tests done. What do you say to the critics that suggest whenever you want to get more cases to keep the province locked down you simply do more tests?
MARCH TESTS AND NEW CASES (shows direct correlation)
3. Why are we using swabs that have a cancer-causing agent called Ethylene oxide at the end of swab?
4. Why do you never tell people how to boost their immune system and stay healthy? Isn't that a "health" officers duty?
5. Why have you completely disregarded the view of the 55,000 infectious disease epidemiologists and public health scientists that signed on to the Great Barrington Declaration that states? https://gbdeclaration.org/
“The Declaration was written from a global public health and humanitarian perspective, with special concerns about how the current COVID-19 strategies are forcing our children, the working class and the poor to carry the heaviest burden. The response to the pandemic in many countries around the world, focused on lockdowns, contact tracing and isolation, imposes enormous unnecessary health costs on people. In the long run, it will lead to higher COVID and non-COVID mortality than the focused protection plan we call for in the Declaration."
6. How do respond to frontline doctors such as Canadians, Phillips, Gulvinder Kaur Gill, Ash Kaur, Hodkinson, Modry, Malthouse, to name just a few, as well as US doctors Kory, McCullough, Visch, Gold and numerous others, that had we followed the recommendations of the Great Barrington Deceleration as well as treated patients with proven drugs such as ivermectin, hydroxychloroquine, Vitamin D and Zinc we would be out of this situation? See video: https://youtu.be/0umr-VedsZs
7. Were you aware that doctors in Ontario are using ivermectin, Zinc and Vitamin D to treat their patients for COVID 19? Why isn't Saskatchewan doing it?
8. Have you reached out to any of the doctors that work in the front lines saving peoples lives that live in the USA or other places in the world that have been using HCQ, ivermectin and other drugs?
9. Can you explain to the public why you never protected the seniors and the vulnerable, that was recommended in the Great Barrington Declaration and made sure they were tested for Vitamin D levels and treated with it. And treated as well with HCQ or ivermectin and other known safe drugs that are used in over 50 other countries with success and have proven through scientific studies to lower mortality from 50% to 90%?
10. Why did the Government of Saskatchewan write a bulletin to health care providers and pharmacists on March 24,2020 outlining new rules specifically denying easy and quick access to treat their patients with the harmless drug hydroxychloroquine (HCQ)? (Ref#B)
11. Why would you not have procured sufficient quantities of HCQ, ivermectin, vitamin D and Zinc and mandate people take a proactive approach to prevent illness and to treat the ill?
12. If this truly is the most dangerous virus we have ever experienced then why have not all weapons been used, such as mentioned above, to save lives?
13. A doctor's first responsibility is to do no harm, yet by consciously allowing suffering and deaths when they know of readily available treatments are they not culpable? Would not the Sask Health Association and the Government of Saskatchewan be guilty of conscious negligence as well?
14. Show us the science on the effectiveness of masks?
15. What do you say to the children of Saskatchewan that have almost zero risk of getting sick why you have denied them their lives such as attending school, graduations, their sports, and their cultural activities while creating a tsunami of mental illness and suicides? I am sure you are aware, and I quote Dr. Patrick Phillips, "Children have a very low expression to the Ace 2 receptor which is what the virus attaches to and allows it to invade our cells and they not a great vector of spread. Studies have shown next to zero transmission to adults meaning their teachers are extremely safe in a full classroom with no masks or restrictions of any kind." Knowing this, how can you look these children and their parents in the eye and justify the repressive policies you've placed upon their lives and the years of trauma that may follow? What would you tell them?
16. Why would you waste resources on the incredibly inaccurate PCR tests on children. If you really wanted to crank up the testing why not test people wanting to visit their loved ones in care homes as these people are suffering mentally as well? People in nursing homes deserve better.
17. How do you answer to Dr. Joffe, who says the collateral damage such as substance abuse, child and domestic abuse, mental illness, unemployment, and bankruptcy is at least 10x worse than COVID-19 itself? (Ref#C)
18. What are your plans to get us back to normal and how are you addressing the mental health crisis and what are your plans for the future?
19. Why have you not spoken out against the Federal government forcibly and illegally detaining people arriving from out of country by air?
20. Can you guarantee that you will make sure that a vaccine passport is not required for the people of Saskatchewan to move on with their sovereign rights?
21. Have you considered giving everyone getting a vaccine the full information such as: this drug has not completed it’s testing, the drug’ side effects including the deaths and adverse reactions that are recorded by VAERS of the CDC and Yellow Card though the NHS?
And to close gentlemen, in times like this it takes leadership to give hope and provide goals. You have failed and failed miserably and so have we, the media. We should held your feet to the fire, it is our public duty to hold you to the highest standards. For this we apologize to all people of this great province. Will you now apologize for the same as your duty of care is much greater than ours? Will you also acknowledge that your policies failed the people that you have been entrusted to serve. That you take responsibility for the unnecessary deaths and hardships you have caused and immediately change your strategy by utilizing the life saving medications and completely reopen our economy and our communities?
This would go a long way in regaining the public's trust and respect, as the media, we hope we can do the same.
