Another hydroxychloroquine study: There is no compelling data to suggest that hydroxychloroquine is effective show art Another hydroxychloroquine study: There is no compelling data to suggest that hydroxychloroquine is effective

The Robert Herriman Show

The use of the anti-malarial drug, hydroxychloroquine, for the potential treatment of COVID-19, has been one of the most unusual things I’ve observed during this pandemic as it became very political after former President Donald Trump last summer advocated for its use as a treatment option. Hydroxychloroquine was first touted as a potential cure for COVID-19 by the French doctor Didier Raoult on the basis of a small and inconclusive study at the start of the pandemic. The FDA cautioned against its use and multiple studies demonstrated potential side effects like cardiac arrhythmias and...

The Robert Herriman Show

Donald A. Henderson is credited with eliminating smallpox on the globe. A great scientist and public health official who headed the World Health Organization's smallpox division years ago. Dr. Henderson died in 2016, but his words concerning dealing with pandemics, particularly on what not to do,  are clearly spelled out in the 2006 article, Disease Mitigation Measures in the Control of Pandemic Influenza. In this podcast I briefly go over what Henderson and his colleagues had to say after a study came out in early 2006 promoting quarantines, closures and lockdowns.

Sheila Jackson Lee is a US representative from the Houston, Texas area who every year introduces a number of off-the-chain pieces of legislation that never go anywhere. On Jan. 4th alone, she introduced in excess of 25 bills with a bill on reparations getting the most press to date. However, one piece of legislation Congresswoman Jackson Lee introduced that has mostly flown under the radar is a full on assault on gun owners and gun ownership. And this bill should have every freedom loving person concerned particularly in this strangest of political climates. The bill is HR 127-- the “Sabika...

The 28th President of the United States, Woodrow Wilson, has come under fire for his racist history once again, and this time Princeton University will be removing his name from the School of Public and International Affairs.

I asked Eland specifically about President Reagan concerning entitlements, taxes, regulation and limited government. We also delved into Reagan’s foreign policy, the Cold War and Iran Contra.
