Dallas Doctor Claims Hydroxychloroquine Cures Her Covid-19 Patients Within 24 Hours

Fox News’ Laura Ingraham Interviewing Texas Doctor Ivette Lozano

Dr Ivette Lozano, a Dallas area doctor, appeared on Fox News’ The Ingraham Angle show and made the startling claim that hydroxychloroquine “resolves” covid-19 symptoms in her patients within 24 hours. This startling claim comes just a few weeks after the food and drug administration (FDA) issued a warning about the use of hydroxychloroquine as a treatment drug for covid-19 because of among other things, the potential for patients developing heart rythm problems.

Dr Lozano told host Laura Ingraham, “Every patient that I’ve treated, serious, moderate, has had resolution of symptoms within 24 hours, that are improved within five hours, the fevers are gone within two days, the lung restriction which is the most important, resolves within about four to five hours. You see dramatic improvement. It’s incredible. I’m surprised myself.”

Instead of vetting Dr Lozano’s claims given FDA’s recent warning about hydroxychloroquine, host Laura Ingraham who has been a major pusher of the drug, used the opportunity to attack FDA’s stance saying, “Dr. Lozano, I hope the FDA is watching this. Peoples’ lives are on the line because of these [FDA]restrictions or these warning I should say, because it’s trickling down to the pharmacies and the pharmacy boards. You educated a lot of people with this segment tonight.”

Bottom line folks, it’s very clear that Laura Ingraham and many other conservatives are keen on pushing hydroxychloroquine as a covid-19 treatment drug despite FDA’s warning. It is therefore very important for the FDA to come out and forcefully challenge Dr Lozano’s claim before members of the public, desperate for a cure for covid-19 either for themselves or their loved ones, get harmed by the information they consume from Fox News and other conservative media outlets. Simply put, the FDA needs to step up and clear up the hydroxychloroquine confusion once and for all.

Trump Repeatedly Praised China’s Covid-19 Response

Presidents Donald Trump and Xi Jinping

If you’ve paid attention to President Trump’s covid-19 responses lately, then you’ve definitely noticed a common theme emerging and that is, him blaming everything related to coronavirus on China. This appears to be the new tactic adopted by Trump, his Republicans in Washington and their media surrogates. Trump’s chief media surrogate and in many ways his unofficial adviser Laura Ingraham, is one of the key proponents of this “blame it on China” strategy.

The problem with this “blame it on China” strategy is that Trump has previously gone on the record several times praising China’s response to covid-19.

Trump for example said on February 10 2020, “I spoke with President Xi and they[China] are working very very hard and I think it’s going to all work out fine.”

On February 17 2020 Trump said, “I spoke with President Xi of China and he’s working very hard on this. It’s a tremendous problem[covid-19] but they are very capable and they’ll get to it.”

One day after that on February 18 2020 Trump said, “I think he is doing it very professionally. I know this, President Xi loves the people of China, he loves his country, and he is doing a very good job with a very tough situation.”

No reasonable person presented with President Trump’s previous pronouncements about China’s response to covid-19 can take seriously the severe criticism and blame he now heaps at the nation and its leader Xi. Reasonable people will conclude that Trump’s new found criticism of China and its leader regarding covid-19 is nothing but a desperate effort to scapegoat the foreign nation for his own administration’s bungled response to the pandemic.

There’s also this Jan 24 2020 tweet from Trump which further proves that the “blame it on China” strategy has no legs to stand on.

Bottom line folks, the record is very clear that the Trump administration was fairly warned about the severe threat of covid-19 and instead of heeding the dire warnings, Trump and key members of his administration, with the help of their surrogates on Fox News, chose to downplay the threat . 2020 is an election year which means covid-19 response will be on the ballot. It is very important that Team Biden and indeed Democrats nationally make sure that the voting public knows the real covid-19 response story. Simply put, Democrats must reiterate to the voting public that China is not the reason so many Americans needlessly died of covid-19.

Laura Ingraham Spills The Beans On AG Barr

A few days after Attorney General William Barr did an interview on ABC News that many in the mainstream media and the general public interpreted as a rare pushback against President Trump for meddling in Roger Stone’s ongoing criminal case, a Trump super surrogate Laura Ingraham of Fox News says the media and the public totally misinterpreted AG Barr’s remarks.

According to FoxNews’ Laura Ingraham, AG Barr did not rebuke Trump at the interview. He was simply reassuring the President, “don’t worry I got this”.

Laura Ingraham specifically said, “The media sees this sexy story of Trump versus Barr but they miss the fact that Barr was basically telling Trump ‘don’t worry, I got this.'”

In other words, according to Laura Ingraham, AG Barr did the interview not because he was troubled by Trump meddling in DOJ affairs, but rather because Trump was doing so publicly–a troubling state of affairs indeed.

It also bears pointing out that FoxNews’ Laura Ingraham and Sean Hannity are so close to Trump and his administration that pronouncements by the two can be reasonably interpreted to be the actual positions of the Trump administration. In other words if Laura Ingraham says AG Barr was reassuring Trump that he “got this” regarding Roger Stone, then one can reasonably infer that given Ingraham’s closeness to Trump, this was indeed what AG Barr was doing.

Following Trump’s overt meddling in Roger Stone’s ongoing criminal case, there have been loud calls for AG Barr to resign in an effort to restore the independence of the Department of Justice. Laura Ingraham’s comments, which essentially spilled the beans on AG Barr, ought to be the final nail on the coffin.

There is no question at this juncture that as long as Barr remains the U.S. Attorney General, the public will always perceive the Department of Justice as playing to President Trump’s political whims–going after his perceived enemies and doing favors for his cronies like Roger Stone.

Bottom line folks, the independence of the Justice Department is of paramount importance and must be guarded at all costs. Where, as here, AG Barr has proven that he cannot keep political pressure from Trump away from DOJ affairs, the simple solution is for him to resign.
