Recommended Posts

The wacko group called America's Frontline Doctors was heavily involved in spewing misinformation during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Some of their famous filth and trash:

  • Demon sperm causes disease
  • Promoted ivermectin
  • Promoted HCQ
  • Taking money from patients and not providing services

Now the head of this clown group is being sued. Simone Gold was arrested for her role in Jan 6. But problems are increasing for her.

America's Frontline Doctors is suing one of its founders in a battle for control over the controversial group, which gained national notoriety for spreading misinformation about COVID-19 treatments and vaccines during the pandemic.

The organization and its current board chairman have sued Simone Gold, MD, alleging that she misused the nonprofit organization's funds to buy a $3.6 million Florida mansion, purchase a Mercedes-Benz and other luxury vehicles, and take trips on private planes.

This is what happens to money collected by these people peddling disinformation. They spend it frivolously. The fight amongst each other over this money gotten by cheating people out of proper healthcare.

Quack COVID Group America’s Frontline Doctors Is Suing Its ‘Rogue Founder’ Simone Gold

Quote

The suit was filed by AFLDS and top official Joseph Gilbert, a former boxer and current attorney who, according to the lawsuit, took over as the group’s chair, CEO, and “Director of Strategy” in February 2022. It offers an unusually frank and detailed look at how much money AFLDS has made pushing discredited COVID cures and bad science, and how much is at stake for those currently fighting for control of the organization.  

People complain about vaccine maker profits. Here is the profit made by those that are anti-vaxxers.

The anti-vaxx movement i a huge money maker. As I keep pointing out - anti-vaxx is a money making enterprise at the expense of the people that fall for their disinformation.

Here is more information where the money of those that signed up for care with this group of clowns went and Gold wanted it to go.

https://nutrihealthline.com/health-news/anti-vax-doctor-simone-gold-sued-by-organization-she-founded/

Quote

Gold resigned from the group’s board of directors in February — before pleading guilty — to allow it to pursue its goal of opening health and wellness centers nationwide, the complaint says. At this point the board elected Gilbert as its chairman and agreed that Gilbert should negotiate an arrangement for Gold to act as advisor. According to the complaint, Gold was asking for a $1.5 million “signing bonus” as well as $50,000 to be paid monthly as a consulting fee.

Gilbert seems to be in the news as well.

https://www.nevadaappeal.com/news/2022/jun/30/gilbert-pay-190000-statewide-recount/

Quote

A candidate for Nevada governor who lost this month's Republican primary election by just over 11 percentage points, or nearly 26,000 votes, will pay for a statewide recount after he objected to the outcome and made numerous unproven claims about the election process.
Nevada's Secretary of State told county clerks Wednesday to begin conducting a recount this week, at a cost of $190,960 to Reno attorney Joey Gilbert.
Gilbert had 26.7% of the vote on June 14, trailing Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo, who won 38.4% in a crowded primary field for the Republican governor nomination on June 14. Gilbert has not conceded and will pay $190,960 for the recount.
Gilbert, who was present outside the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, has repeatedly challenged the primary election results, alleging workers did not properly verify signatures or monitor ballots, among many other claims.
Gilbert's team has not offered any proof for the claims and his team did not respond to emailed questions from The Associated Press on Wednesday. County clerks and officials across the state have said that the election was conducted fairly.

So this Trump wannabe is out there whining about losing and he lost by a wide margin like that  whiner Trump.

But wait there's more!

https://www.ktnv.com/news/judge-88k-in-sanctions-for-nevada-gop-primary-challenge#:~:text=Gilbert who lost this month's Republican primary election,process%2C election officials said Wednesday%2C June 29%2C 2022.

Quote

A judge ordered a candidate who lost the Nevada governor primary election to pay $88,000 in sanctions for a lawsuit challenging the results.

Reno attorney Joey Gilbert came in second to GOP governor nominee Joe Lombardo by 26,000 votes in the June primary and argued that he actually won by over 50,000 votes because the June primary results were “mathematically impossible.”

 

He paid for the recount and then still lost. So he pulled a Trump and went to court. He was sanctioned another 88k.

Total cost: $278,960. Do you think he might try and use the front line group's money to pay off this debt?

Time will tell

Quote

America’s Frontline Doctors (AFLDS),
established in July 2020, offers paid online consultations and prescriptions for drugs like
hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin. This operation has reportedly generated millions of dollars
in revenue for AFLDS and its partners.1 While AFLDS is not alone in providing these services,
it is reportedly among the top purveyors of questionable treatments nationwide and a prominent
source of misinformation related to the coronavirus. I am concerned that efforts by AFLDS and
similar groups are endangering American lives and harming our efforts to stop the spread of the
virus. I write today to seek information on how AFLDS has profited from these abusive
practices and to urge you to stop promoting untested and dangerous claims.

That is from a 10 page letter from congress to Gold.

Quote

I write to request that the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) investigate the deceptive
conduct of companies promoting and profiting from misinformation about the coronavirus,
including America’s Frontline Doctors (AFLDS) and SpeakWithAnMD.com. AFLDS and
SpeakWithAnMD.com are reportedly profiting from the promotion and sale of treatments falsely
advertised as cures for coronavirus infection, such as hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin.
Misinformation endangers public health and fuels vaccine hesitancy by promoting the false ideas
that coronavirus vaccines are unsafe and ineffective and that alternative drugs can prevent or
cure coronavirus infections.1 Exploiting these falsehoods for financial gain puts American lives
at risk and sets back our nation’s efforts to combat the spread of the coronavirus. I am concerned
that these predatory practices are endangering American lives and harming our efforts to stop the
spread of the virus.

From a letter from congress to the FTC to investigate the practices of the front line doctors

We were assured that the vaccines would stop transmission on a large scale.  Then we were told it would "help".  Then they admitted it did nothing to stop transmission, yet governments were penalizing people, taking away their freedom of movement, and even taking away their means of livelihood if they refused the jab.  WHY?  If the vaccine did nothing to stop transmission, WHY was it so critical to have as proof if people wanted to be at work?  

I have no idea how effective vaccines were and if others are honest, they'd admit they don't KNOW, either.  The vaccines don't even stop infection for many and the only thing the pro-vax crowd say is "without it the disease course would have been much worse"  They don't provide data to back that claim.  IF this group is fleecing people for cash, then by all means, punish them under the law.  BUT, the same risk should accrue to the pro-vaccine crowd for causing MASSIVE losses of freedom, property, and overall wellbeing.

Please try to be truthful for a change. You might even like it. You start with your glop of known lies and think that people won't notice.

The vaccine does stop transmission. That is what community immunity is all about. It does help, but like all tings it is not 100%.

Just because you don't know about the efficacy of vaccines doe snot mean others don't. It simply shows you don't know and apparently have no interest in knowing.

And no, the pro-vaccine group does not lie like these scammers, they do not push useless drugs like these scammers, ...

Too bad the issue is that these filthy scammers are fighting among themselves trying to keep what they effectively stole from people they fleeced.

Dr. Simone Gold, a leading figure in the anti-vaccine moment, was sentenced to prison Thursday for storming the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.

The founder of America's Frontline Doctors, Gold and her coalition of physicians have pushed conspiracy theories about the COVID-19 vaccine and promoted disproven treatments like ivermectin. She pleaded guilty in March to a misdemeanor charge of unlawfully entering and remaining in a restricted area of the U.S. Capitol during the Jan. 6 attack.

Christopher Cooper, U.S. district judge for the District of Columbia, sentenced Gold on Thursday to a 60-day prison term followed by 12 months of supervised release, and ordered her to pay a $9,500 fine.

The person being sued went to jail for their actions on Jan 6

Where have you been? I thought you were around in 1968 before flu vaccines were available and we had a pandemic.   "We were told...."   By whom, reputable sources?  No.   You should know how virus' work and how vaccine work by now.

Using large-scale contact tracing data, we show that BNT162b2 and ChAdOx1 vaccination both reduce onward transmission of SARS-CoV-2 from individuals infected despite vaccination.

So even if someone has a breakthrough case the vaccine still reduces the chance of transmission.

Here is for those that are untruthful such as someone already posting in this thread.

  1. The vaccines prevent infection
  2. Should someone become infected they are less likely to pass on the disease

Here is another article showing that vaccinations do reduce transmissions

https://www.nature.com/articles/s41467-022-33498-0

Quote

SARS coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) continues to evolve and new variants emerge. Using nationwide Danish data, we estimate the transmission dynamics of SARS-CoV-2 Omicron subvariants BA.1 and BA.2 within households. Among 22,678 primary cases, we identified 17,319 secondary infections among 50,588 household contacts during a 1–7 day follow-up. The secondary attack rate (SAR) was 29% and 39% in households infected with Omicron BA.1 and BA.2, respectively. BA.2 was associated with increased susceptibility of infection for unvaccinated household contacts (Odds Ratio (OR) 1.99; 95%–CI 1.72-2.31), fully vaccinated contacts (OR 2.26; 95%–CI 1.95–2.62) and booster-vaccinated contacts (OR 2.65; 95%–CI 2.29–3.08), compared to BA.1. We also found increased infectiousness from unvaccinated primary cases infected with BA.2 compared to BA.1 (OR 2.47; 95%–CI 2.15–2.84), but not for fully vaccinated (OR 0.66; 95%–CI 0.57–0.78) or booster-vaccinated primary cases (OR 0.69; 95%–CI 0.59–0.82). Omicron BA.2 is inherently more transmissible than BA.1. Its immune-evasive properties also reduce the protective effect of vaccination against infection, but do not increase infectiousness of breakthrough infections from vaccinated individuals.

Bolding mine

 

Now this has been proven to be a lie: " Then they admitted it did nothing to stop transmission"

Who are some of the other players in this group of crazies?

https://www.newsweek.com/ron-desantis-new-surgeon-general-appeared-demon-sperm-doctors-covid-conspiracy-video-1631372

Quote

Joseph Ladapo—the doctor appointed on Tuesday as Florida's new surgeon general by Republican Governor Ron DeSantis—once appeared in a COVID-19 conspiracy video featuring Dr. Stella Immanuel. Immanuel, a pediatrician and religious minister, gained notoriety in 2020 for her bizarre theories, including that "demonic seed" causes endometriosis and ovarian cysts.

In July 2020, Ladapo appeared in a 43-minute viral video as part of a group called America's Frontline Doctors. None of the doctors in the video were epidemiologists or immunologists best qualified to speak on infectious diseases, Rolling Stone reported at the time. The doctors' recorded speech was organized by the Tea Party Patriots, a right-wing group backed by wealthy Republican donors.

Quote

A group that once earned an audience with Vice President Mike Pence despite featuring a doctor promoting the medical perils of demon sperm is now on to its next venture: spreading unfounded fears about the COVID vaccine.

America’s Frontline Doctors went viral in July with a video that showed a handful of doctors promoting hydroxychloroquine in Washington, D.C. at an event hosted by the Tea Party Patriots. Donald Trump retweeted their video, and some of the doctors met with Pence. But the group faltered after The Daily Beast reported that Dr. Stella Immanuel, the doctor at the center of their summit, also believed that some medical ailments are caused by dream-sex with demons and that alien DNA is used in some treatments.

The people in this group are just plain nuts.

A fringe, pro-Trump medical group perhaps best known for featuring a notorious coronavirus truther fixated on the alleged medical dangers of demon sperm filed a motion demanding the pause of COVID-19 vaccinations in the United States on Monday.

Among other wild assertions in the predictably absurd document, the motion seeking an injunction filed by “America’s Frontline Doctors” falsely claims the three vaccines authorized for emergency use in the U.S. do not actually curb the spread of the deadly virus. Also: that the coronavirus is not a public health emergency. This being the same pandemic that has killed over 600,000 Americans while showing signs of a nationwide resurgence in recent days with the extra-contagious Delta variant, which is almost exclusively harming unvaccinated people.

Quote

A frontline doctor who has been treating patients that have taken the experimental COVID shots was recently interviewed concerning what sort of adverse effects she is seeing among these patients and she has seen a rise in Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS) among the so-called “vaccinated.”

“Yes, we are seeing vaccine related acquired immunodeficiency in the hospital now from the triple vaxed. . . . It is a vax injury, and we are not really certain how to treat this,” Dr. Elizabeth Eads told USA Watchdog’s Greg Hunter. “We are kind of throwing the kitchen sink at it. . . . .We are trying to use everything we can think of to boost up the CD4 and CD8 counts and reverse this collapse or calamity of this immune collapse. It’s very stunning.”

More on the demon sperm doctor. She wrote the comments on the church website. She runs the church.

https://www.bmj.com/content/370/bmj.m3046

Quote

The church’s website cautions about “evil spirits” and says that “tormenting spirits are responsible for breaking marriages, hatred by earthly spouse, serious gynecological problems, marital distress, miscarriages, impotence, untold hardship, financial failure and general failure at the edge of breakthrough.” It also says, “Many women suffer from astral sex regularly. Astral sex is the ability to project one’s spirit man into the victim’s body and have intercourse with it. This practice is very common amongst Satanists. They leave their physical bodies in a dormant state while they project their spirits into the body of whoever they want to have sex with.”

Astral sex? Have not seen anyone doing more than claiming astral projection here at U-M.

When employees at leading COVID pseudoscience group America’s Frontline Doctors tried to log in to work last week, they found themselves locked out of their email accounts. The nonprofit quickly fell into factions, with employees holding rival Zoom meetings to plot who would take over the group.

The organization’s exiled founder, Dr. Simone Gold, tried unsuccessfully to gain access to a private Zoom call, only to find herself stuck in a waiting room. In internal emails, the group’s accountant worried about who could still access the $7 million locked in its bank accounts.

That's the money still left to this group of frauds and quacks.

Quote

Much of the controversy has centered on AFLDS’s purchase of a $3.6 million mansion in Naples, Florida., where Gold lives with her boyfriend: a much younger underwear model and fellow Capitol rioter.

 

Well here is a person in congress in bed with these quacks.

Quote

Gold ultimately pleaded guilty to one of her riot charges in June, and was sentenced to 60 days of incarceration. When she emerged from a federal prison in Miami this September, she was touted as a hero. As hard-right Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) welcomed her outside the facility, Gold made a heart sign with her hands.

It's worth reading the article to see how sleazy all of the characters are from this group of quacks

Quote

For now, though, AFLDS’s role as the right’s leading pseudoscience medical group appears to be through.

That's utter BS. A complete lie.

The situation was that the vaccine wasn't tested immediately for transmission. Just attacking Covid. It was later shown when the tests were done that it is indeed very effective at stopping transmission.

America's Frontline doctors are basically witch doctors. This action is way overdue, and the others in the organisation need to be investigated and charged appropriately.

All these so called frontline doctors should lose their medical licence.

From that link:

 

The viral clips featured AFLDS member Stella Immanuel falsely claiming hydroxychloroquine is a "cure for COVID." Immanuel is also notable for previously claiming that gynecological conditions are caused by having sex in dreams with demons and witches, that modern medicine uses "alien DNA," and that scientists are trying to make a vaccine to prevent people from being religious.

 

It is scary that people like this hold a medical licence.

Frontline doctors need to be heavily assessed and many of those misused medical licences revoked. 

America is letting the people down by allowing crazy people like this to practise medicine.
