John William Godward Dolce Far Niente (It’s Sweet Doing Nothing) 1909



By now, I’m at the point where I wonder why nobody -that I know of- has tried holding governments, scientists, scientific journals, MSM, responsible for their negligence of COVID-related treatment and prophylactic evidence that is everywhere if you’re willing to look for it.

Because this negligence may well be the reason for millions of deaths, hospitalizations, untold misery, and the disruption of entire societies and economies. When will we hold the willfully blind and dumb feet to the fire for causing all this?

So far, there’s no sign we ever will. But there must be someone, in some country, with the courage and means to bring this before a court. If you’ve lost members of your family, and you realize that could -perhaps even easily- have been prevented, or if you’re a Long-COVID patient yourself, why not try and hold those responsible to account?

It may take some effort to determine who ultimately IS responsible, but if you’ve just lost a loved one, why not give it a try? Politicians, when prompted, will point their accusing fingers at their science “experts”, who will point to research and journals, which will point to… Let a judge decide. And more importantly, let’s all take the blinders from our eyes and prevent more unnecessary deaths and suffering.


At the Automatic Earth, we’ve been talking, including our in-house medical commenters, since February 2020, about things that could have prevented a lot of COVID cases. And for us it’s astonishing that at least some of these things still haven’t been adopted, that we are exclusively discussing vaccines instead.

The first substance that came up way back when was vitamin D. One of the many times I wrote about it was in September, quoting the Daily Mail. That was four months ago. How many people have died since? While “People who get enough vitamin D are at a 52 percent lower risk of dying of COVID-19?” Why have these people died? Why is there not one single country that has a nationwide program to boost vitamin D levels in all its citizens when both death and infection itself could be lowered by some 50%?


Vitamin D

People who get enough vitamin D are at a 52 percent lower risk of dying of COVID-19 than people who are deficient for the ‘sunshine vitamin,’ new research reveals. Vitamin D plays a crucial role in the immune system and may combat inflammation. These features may make it a key player in the body’s fight against coronavirus. Rates of vitamin D deficiency are also higher in some of the same groups who have been hardest hit by coronavirus: people of color and elderly people.

It’s by no means a causal link, but suggests that vitamin D could play a role in who gets COVID-19, who gets sickest from it, and who is spared altogether. Boston University’s Dr Michael Holick found in his previous research that people who have enough vitamin D are 54 percent less likely to catch coronavirus in the first place. [..] about 42 percent of the US population is vitamin D deficient. If that rate held true for the more 203,000 Americans who died of coronavirus, perhaps some 85,000 would have fared better with improved vitamin D levels.


The second substance we should discuss -but don’t- is ivermectin. The FLCCC has finally succeeded in getting the US NIH to approve it for use, after Dr. Pierre Kory said almost 2 months ago in the Senate that “If you take [ivermectin], you will not get sick.” How many people died in the USA since his December 8 testimony? What does Dr. Fauci have to say about that? Or is he still focused on remdesivir, which Kory mentions? He must be the only one.


‘Miraculous’ Ivermectin Approved For Use In The US For COVID-19

Following the diligent efforts of physicians associated with a group called Front Line Covid-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC), the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has upgraded their recommendation for the “miraculous” drug ivermectin, making it an option for use in treating COVID-19 within the United States. The result comes one week after Dr. Paul Marik and Dr. Pierre Kory—founding members of the FLCCC, along with Dr. Andrew Hill, researcher and consultant to the World Health Organization (WHO), presented their data before the NIH Treatment Guidelines Panel. A press release from FLCCC explains the “new designation upgraded the status of ivermectin from ‘against’ [the drug’s use] to ‘neither for nor against,’ which is the same recommendation given to monoclonal antibodies and convalescent plasma, both widely used across the nation.”

“By no longer recommending against ivermectin use,” the statement said, “doctors should feel more open in prescribing ivermectin as another therapeutic option for the treatment of COVID-19. This may clear its path towards FDA [Food and Drug Administration] emergency use approval.” “Ivermectin is one of the world’s safest, cheapest and most widely available drugs,” explained Dr. Kory, President of the FLCCC Alliance. “The studies we presented to the NIH revealed high levels of statistical significance showing large magnitude benefit in transmission rates, need for hospitalization, and death. What’s more, the totality of trials data supporting ivermectin is without precedent.”

The third substance is Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), which was banned because 1) Trump said back in March that he liked it and 2) because the Lancet published a very negative article about it. That article was based on nothing at all, which is curious to say the least for the Lancet, but hey, at least they retracted it back in June.

Anybody seen any HCQ research since then though? That’s seven months ago. How many people have died since then? The Lancet’s editors should be taken to court, too, for publishing that first article without any peer review, if only so we can find out why they published it.

The article below from January 2021 comes at a strange point in time, since the retraction happened in June, but that’s not the essence.


Lancet Retracts Study That Claimed HCQ Is Ineffective

A leading medical journal has issued a retraction of their endorsement for a study that concluded the anti-viral drug hydroxychloroquine was ineffective against the COVID-19 virus. This retraction appears to validate the claims then-President Trump made about the medication being a frontline drug in the battle in the pandemic. The Lancet, a respected online medical journal, issued an apology to its readers in an edition last year after the retraction. “We deeply apologize to you, the editors, and the journal readership for any embarrassment or inconvenience that this may have caused,” the publishers of The Lancet said.

Compared to the significantly more expensive medications being used to treat the virus, hydroxychloroquine – a drug widely used to treat malaria – is relatively inexpensive and universally available. Hydroxychloroquine ranges in price from $0.30 to $6.63 per dose depending on location. The Lancet’s endorsement of the study was withdrawn because the Surgisphere Corporation, the company that provided data, refused to provide full access to the information it based its study on. Peer review medical journals typically engage in third-party peer review to validate the findings. The Surgisphere Corporation said it refused to release the study data because it would violate client agreements and confidentiality requirements, raising questions about the study’s legitimacy.

“Based on this development, we can no longer vouch for the veracity of the primary data sources. Due to this unfortunate development, the authors request that the paper be retracted,” The Lancet said in a statement. In the now debunked study, researchers concluded that hydroxychloroquine didn’t aid in curbing the COVID-19 virus. It went on to say that the drug caused heart problems and appeared to elevate the risk of death. The study was immediately embraced by the beleaguered World Health Organization and other groups causing research into the use of the drug to combat COVID-19 to stop.


There are other substances that are used in various stages of the disease, in various combinations, and in various groups of people, such as zinc, azithromycin, doxycycline and Quercetin. There is no lack of research into these things, but there certainly is a lack of attention for it. So let’s find out what’s behind that. If only because we owe that to the people who have needlessly died, and to those who will follow them as long as this situation persists.

Is it all just to sell vaccines, as in just let them all get sick and then we’ll give them a jab? Is it to control populations? Is it about a Great societal Reset? There are countries such as India, which since this summer has pushed its Ziverdo kit, which contains zinc, doxycycline ad ivermectin. Here’s what that did:



Now compare that pattern to the US and tell me what you think you see. Knowing that India has about four times the population of the US, but less than 10% of its new cases. Yes, all the media blame has gone to Trump, and he deserves quite a bit of it. But his scientific head was Dr. Fauci, who has kept his job under Biden, and who keeps pushing the same old mule: vaccines.



Now imagine if we could have cut the death-, infection- and misery toll in half. And that’s just what sufficient vitamin D levels promise to do. Ivermectin promises much more. We could have saved millions of lives, a manifold of that in hospitalizations and all-over suffering, we wouldn’t have needed to kill our societies and economies, no lockdowns, no facemasks, no overloaded health care systems. Imagine that.

But we didn’t. Fauci and his peers all over the globe simply ignored the science. And replaced it with something that *they* called “the science”. Which they can do because they have degrees and are considered scientists. And are in a position to crowd out other scientists.


Just vitamin D, zinc, ivermectin and HCQ. They wouldn’t perhaps have prevented and solved every single case, but the burden on society would have been so much less. And the deaths. And the misery.

So yes, take them to court. Find out what happened, why they decided what they did, why they ignored the simplest and cheapest approaches and went for the new expensive drugs instead.

Can I get a vitamin D, zinc and chloroquine passport, so I can travel again? No, I can’t. But I may be much safer than someone who’s had a Pfizer vaccine. Not that I know, but you see, nobody knows that. Not Pfizer, not Fauci, no-one. Take them to court, the lot of them.

One last bit: there is no way of knowing how long the mRNA vaccines’ protection lasts. But vitamin D, zinc, ivermectin and HCQ continues to protect you, regardless of the variant, that we know. As I said, not 100%, but neither do the vaccines. The main difference appears to be that one option costs just pennies, and the other costs many billions. So much that developing nations won’t get “vaccinated” until 2024. If they’re “lucky”.

Take your government to court over this, whatever country you live in. Get this started. People in other countries will follow you. Promise. All we need is the first spark. Let’s start a movement. To honor those who died for no reason, and to protect those who will if this negligence continues.


Please note that none of this means that the various vaccines are completely useless, it just means the urgency to roll them out by the billions wouldn’t have been there. We could have had proper research, peer review, all that. But we didn’t. We now have mRNA vaccines, never tested on humans, being tested on millions upon millions of them. And there was never any reason for that. It was always just an induced panic, that very simple and cheap substances could have made obsolete.

    Agree 100%

    There has been a almost pathological resistance to early treatment of Covid patients.

    They can do EUA’s for remdesivir on the shoddiest of evidence but deny use of HCQ.

    One of the studies that was pro for HCQ came out of the Henry Ford medical system in Detroit – of course it was only ‘observational’ but they were convinced it worked because they had positive results from treating people (and they were treating a lot of people at the time). When the ‘hammer’ came down on HCQ use they applied for an EUA so that they could continue using it. It was denied.

    ‘But wait there’s more!’

    Study results on the use of colchicine (a gout medicine) came out of Montreal on Jan 23. Again this was for early treatment.

    It was an ‘official’ study, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled across multiple countries. Over 4000 subjects who had had positive PCR tests.

    ‘Analysis of the study found that colchicine resulted in reductions in hospitalizations by 25 per cent, the need for mechanical ventilation by 50 per cent, and deaths by 44 per cent.’

    Given the state of hospitals and LTC homes in Canada this should be topic number 1 with plans for an EUA, roll outs, further studies etc. but it seems to have already disappeared off the radar.


    ‘But wait there’s more!’

    These guys think fluvoxamine may be as good or better than ivermectin but because it’s for early treatment…..


    Fluvoxamine may prevent serious illness in COVID-19 patients

    There are billions for mega corp. projects but anything else is not only not supported but sidelined.

    The whole HCQ bash down was beyond belief. Not only has there been a total lack of support for early treatment it has gone far beyond that. It has turned into actual suppression.

    I’m not one for conspiracy theories but if it ‘quacks like a duck’ …..


    excerpt from American Journal of Medicine January 2021…

    COVID-19 hospitalizations and death can be reduced with outpatient treatment.

    Principles of COVID-19 outpatient care include:
    1) reduction of reinoculation,
    2) combination antiviral therapy,
    3) immunomodulation,
    4) antiplatelet/antithrombotic therapy
    5) administration of oxygen, monitoring, and telemedicine.

    Future randomized trials will undoubtedly refine and clarify ambulatory treatment, however we emphasize the immediate need for management guidance in the current crisis of widespread hospital resource consumption, morbidity, and mortality.


    The Choir
    Criminal COVID Negligence

    (To preach to the choir means to preach to those who already agree with you)

    If Dr. Fauci does not positively mention head lice medicine or malaria medicine, vitamin C and D, and zinc while promoting vaccines and other ways of minimizing covid19 negative effects then you know that he has an hidden agenda.
    In other words, go look somewhere else for the truth.

    Nobody want to be ostracized, shunned, lose their job.
    A brown nose is a requirement to become an “expert”.
    (Its a good thing that TAE has “truthtellers” )

    Doc Robinson

    Illargi: “very simple and cheap substances could have made [vaccines] obsolete.”

    If those simple, cheap, and effective treatments were allowed to be recognized as such, then the vaccines would not have been able to skip the normally required years of safety testing before being widely distributed.

    Instead of getting FDA approval after the vaccines are proven “safe”, the vaccines instead got Emergency Use Authorization (EUA), which is given “when certain statutory criteria have been met, including that there are no adequate, approved, and available alternatives.

    An Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) is a mechanism to facilitate the availability and use of medical countermeasures, including vaccines, during public health emergencies, such as the current COVID-19 pandemic. Under an EUA, FDA may allow the use of unapproved medical products, or unapproved uses of approved medical products in an emergency to diagnose, treat, or prevent serious or life-threatening diseases or conditions when certain statutory criteria have been met, including that there are no adequate, approved, and available alternatives. Taking into consideration input from the FDA, manufacturers decide whether and when to submit an EUA request to FDA.

    Once submitted, FDA will evaluate an EUA request and determine whether the relevant statutory criteria are met…



    About this painting!

    This artist’s ability to portray detail makes this a great painting in my view.

    Obviously I am a minority in a sea of abstracts!

    Maxwell Quest

    This artist struck me as a softer version of Maxfield Parrish.

    To borrow from a recent thread:

    “It’s possible we are in a completely fraudulent system.” – Dr. Burry, The Big Short (2015)

    Yes, the financial system is a complete extractive fraud. This was made clear when not a single person was prosecuted for the 2008 financial crisis. Wall Street, the Fed, regulators, mortgage lenders, rating agencies, academia, and the media were all in bed together making money off their scams, skims, and cons.

    After it all imploded, nobody went to jail. Zero. Zip. Nada. Nobody saw nothin’. Who could’ve knowed? Nope, no criminal negligence or malfeasance here!

    And since all the media experts agreed that it was a rare convergence of a series of unfortunate events that were outside everyone’s control, all the big players got to keep their winnings. And just to make it perfectly clear who called the shots, they all rewarded themselves with bonuses, promotions, stock options, and complimentary media gigs to edify the lumpen.

    What have we learned since then? That the banking/mortgage industry is not the only institution that went over to the Dark Side, and is protected by the media and courts. We see now that Big Tech has taken the plunge, along with our entire electoral system. The list grows longer each year… “It is a ponderous chain!”

    After having seen the judicial system turn it’s back on the 2020 election fraud claims, even as the dump trucks were unloading their cargos of evidence on the courthouse steps, I don’t hold out much hope for Ilargi’s strategy of fighting Big Pharma at the bench.

    Lately, I can’t help thinking that the pandemic is just the latest tool in a much larger (and darker) scheme of total global hegemony. Under this umbrella, Big Pharma is only happy to do it’s part by fleecing it’s victims and using western populations for its mRNA experiments.


    I suspect that there are grouips in several/many countries starting the process of filing lawsuits against their governments and health agencies. In Canada Rocco Galati is assembling information:

    In Europe Reiner Fuellmich calls the pandemic false and a crime against humanity.

    I am sure that there are other centres preparing lawsuits! We just don’t seem to have a site where we can get this kind of information on our country and state or province so that we can add our names to support the legal action.

    @Chett: Yes, that very good paper you link to is from the same FLCCC Front line Covid-19 Critical Care Alliance guys. Keep track here. I’m honored to be on their listserv. I am spending significant time there lately.
    @Doc Robinson: Yes, the Emergency Use Authorization law is a wartime law, for bioweapon attacks, and was never intended to be used for a pandemic. (I do think this is a leaked bioweapon, but it was in the US and Europe in mid 2019, so it could have been labs other than Wuhan, too)
    To activate that law required lies, maybe not quite at first, but they were clearly lies by late spring. By mid spring, the government doubled down, forced the VA to stop using HCQ/azithromycin, and all other hospitals soon stopped, too. My daughter’s hospital had tracked VA use early, and their deaths and ICU admissions seemed to go up. their stats went down to average when the stopped HCG/Azithro. Just following orders, like everybody else.
    At least one of the doctors on the FLCCC list has intimated to me the feeling that we are all putting up with lies and injustice rather than face the consequences.
    @ Ilargi: What about everybody else standing up to the global death machine? The courts wouldn’t even hear Trump’s case.
    Hey , judges have families that can die in flaming car accidents, too (Ref fiancee of Georgia Governor’s daughter).
    I think we are all in deeper shite than we are comfortable admitting, but that’s just what I think. I’m human. I err.
    I feel very fortunate to have started everything I am doing at the clinic before it became a political hot-button. I am prescribing more and more ivermectin, but I’m still the only one. I’m just keeping on.
    This is one of those times in history where you just need to outlive your enemy, I think. That’s my current objective. I want to help global financial capitalism fail by keeping on keeping on and pushing vitamin-D , zinc and ivermectin to everybody who will listen.
    The system needs to fail, and it’s our life support system, even though it sucks our lifeblood.
    We are hostages. Wiggle in those ropes, friends! Do some transactions without the internet, and walk or bike places. Put a target on your forehead by planting a vegetable garden…

    How could anyone think otherwise? 😉

    Dr. D

    Or like also said: Any lie leads to all lies. Any truth leads to all truths.

    So the segments going over the dark side must increase as they are attacked and captured, or decrease as truth re-appears and people reject them. It the moment you can see where we are.


    The differences re. serious illness / deaths for different groups, as one tends to define them today, is very little or poorly analysed.

    The first ‘vulnerability’ for COV19 death is age.

    OK, the very elderly can be swept away by this or that, being weak and frail, and as is often said ‘beset by disfunctions, co-morbidities’ and having an immune system ‘that doesn’t function well’ .. ok, whatever. Old ppl die of something. Now they die of Cov19 and not pneumonia. I leave that aside, though I don’t consider it a given at all. (See Spanish flu, which killed young ppl first of all.)

    The second is sex, the difference between men and women diying of Cov19 is consequent. Though in graphs at some points one can see women dying more often than men, ex. in over 80, 90, 95 age-groups that is because there are very few men around left to die.

    At lower ages, 40 – 65 say, ppl who are more exposed in smiley jobs, e.g. nurses, cashiers, teachers, who are in contact with the public all the time, tend to be women, as opposed to men who are in booths overseeing the scene at the supermarket, or truck driving (alone), in construction (open air), in IT working in a cubicle, etc. And yet overall men are more vulnerable, get sicker and die more often, than women, though women may be more often infected. => A rough general picture, to be sure areas / countries vary.

    Women live longer than men, are less suceptible to the flu and other infectious diseases, all that despite their high ‘death risks’ re. pregnancy and child birth.

    This difference doesn’t attract much attention, it is taken for granted, traditional, but could provide many clues.

    One article.

    Coronavirus COV-19/SARS-CoV-2 affects women less than men: clinical response to viral infection


    The third factor in W countries is obesity. Again, so why exactly is obesity a risk-factor? There are some articles, but Idk of any conclusion (?)

    John Day — Your suspicions about a bio-weapon seem well founded. For some reason, this particular incident (see link) has not gone viral. July 11, 2019, 2 dead (later 3), 18 hospitalized, 50+ ill, 50 miles from Ft. Detrick (an easy commute, or visit to family) which was closed by the CDC four weeks after this incident, citing “…two breaches earlier in the year”.
    “Pneumonia” in summer, with patients suffering fever, cough, wheezing, and fatigue… CDC could not ID the pathogen (reported a week later in NBC coverage).

    Doc Robinson

    @ dalex,

    Lots of comments and information about that July 2019 incident can be found here at TAE in the Debt Rattle from May 17, 2020.


    Thank you, @Doc Robinson! I picked up some other interesing details in those replies. I still wonder why this has not been treated like the smoking cannon it appears to be.
