How 99.99 percent of 150,000 COVID-19 Patients survived

Not with anything that Tony Fauci recommended. A doctor who has been offering free telehealth services to COVID-19 patients during the pandemic says that early treatment for COVID-19 works, claiming that he has a 99.99 percent survival rate. This is from  Dr. Ben Marble, the founder of, an online medical consultation service. The treatment protocol consists of hydroxychloroquine,... Read more »

Celebrity chef Rick Bayless wants more $$$$$ from you.

Chicago chef Rick Bayless, who operates the Frontera Grill and other acclaimed Mexican restaurants, says his business is at 45% of pre-COVID-19 levels, and that restaurants across Chicago are in danger of closing without federal relief. (E. Jason Wambsgans / Chicago Tribune) No, Covid-19 by itself did not put restaurants on the brink of bankruptcy. It... Read more »

The over-cooked dangers of the Omicron variation.

Data that only counts the number of cases fails to justify a return to masks, shuttered classrooms and other useless trammels. You’d think that going into the third year of the Covid-19 pandemic, we’d finally get the “data” that justifies the lockdowns, school shutdowns, small business bankruptcies and other wrong-headed policies that have crippled the...

The covid pandemic is OVER

To paraphrase Karl Marx: Americans unite! You have nothing to lose but your chains! Have you had enough yet? Tired of being herded like sheep? Can’t tolerate anymore getting lectured by the self-appointed better-than-thou suburban ladies for not wearing your mask correctly? Fed up with the regulations, guidelines, executive orders and all the other prods... Read more »

Tony Fauci, under oath, deceives Congress about his salary and finances.

This guy increasingly steps in it every time he opens his mouth. The latest example came when he was asked about his person finances in a Senate committee hearing. Fauci, the highest paid of any federal employe, said his records are open to the public. Well, sort of. Listen to the video below as OpenTheBooks... Read more »

"The Chicago Teachers Union is a national disgrace."

Chicago Teachers Union President Jesse Sharkey who is NOT the boss of Chicago Public Schools. (John J. Kim / Chicago Tribune) I wrote that in December, 2020, not thinking that two years later, the Chicago Teachers Unions would still be disgracing itself and screwing parents and children with its ridiculous demands. The CTU has elevated... Read more »

Biden coulda been a statesman, a great president, but he blew it.

The Capitol’s Statuary Hall, where President Joe Biden missed his chance to be president for all the people. His Jan. 6 speech was hyper-partisan when he could have actually moved America toward reconciliation. Vice President Kamala Harris surely set the tone of what was to come when President Joe Biden stepped up to the podium: She... Read more »

Questions that I wish reporters would ask the Chicago Teachers Union

My apologies if these questions have been asked and answered. I just have not seen them asked and answered. CTU says 73 percent approved staying out of the Chicago public schools. Okay, but how many members voted? Was the turnout high or low? What percentage of union membership actually voted? It would be an important... Read more »

I'm sick and tired of hearing about Jan. 6th...from both sides.

A pox on both houses. Partisans from the right and the left are both right and wrong about Jan. 6. But they’d be doing America a huge favoring by just shutting up. First, how the Right is wrong. The breach of the Capitol was an insurrection– an attempt to stymie our elected government from acting. No... Read more »

Requiring vaccination cards in Chicago and Cook County is racist.

They’re as hard or harder to get than voter IDs. Not unlike a nation occupied by a foreign power, everyone in Chicago, Cook County and other Blue Team jurisdictions will have to show their papers if they want to go, well, just about anywhere public. Those papers documenting that you have been fully vaccinated against... Read more »
