FDA issues warnings on chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine after deaths and poisonings reported

 The agency also said it became aware of reports of “serious heart rhythm problems” in patients with the virus who were treated with the malaria drugs.
  • It said patients taking the drugs for approved reasons, including malaria or to treat autoimmune conditions like lupus, should continue taking their medicine as prescribed.


  1. Torah thought on this week’s parsha אחרי מות קדשים
    “Do not degrade תחלל your daughter and make her a harlot להזנותה, lest the land fall into harlotry and the land be filled with depravity. You shall keep My sabbaths and venerate My sanctuary: I am the Lord.” (Leviticus 19:29-30).
    ויקרא פרשת קדושים פרק יט פסוק כט
    אַל תְּחַלֵּל אֶת בִּתְּךָ לְהַזְנוֹתָהּ וְלֹא תִזְנֶה הָאָרֶץ וּמָלְאָה הָאָרֶץ זִמָּה:
    רש"י ויקרא פרשת קדושים פרק יט פסוק כט
    אל תחלל את בתך להזנותה - במוסר בתו פנויה לביאה שלא לשם קידושין:
    ולא תזנה הארץ - אם אתה עושה כן הארץ מזנה את פירותיה לעשותן במקום אחר ולא בארצכם. וכן הוא אומר (ירמיה ג ג) וימנעו רביבים וגו':
    “[The word of the Lord came to me] as follows: If a man divorces his wife, and she leaves him and marries another man, can he ever go back to her? Would not such a land be defiled [cf. Deut. 24.1–4]? Now you have whored with many lovers: can you return to Me?—says the Lord. Look up to the bare heights, and see: Where have they not lain with you? You waited for them on the roadside Like a bandit כערבי [lit. Arab] in the wilderness. And you defiled the land With your whoring and your debauchery. And when showers were withheld And the late rains did not come, You had the brazenness כמצח [lit. forehead] of a street woman, You refused to be ashamed.” (Jeremiah 3:1-3).
    Hertz Chumash p. 304: “sabbaths...sanctuary. The parenthetical insertion of this injunction may be intended to impress upon the Israelite that reverence for Sabbath and Sanctuary will keep him from the heathenish rites and immoralities mentioned in the previous verse.”
    Beautiful. Reverence for Sabbath and Sanctuary, hopefully, will prevent Do not degrade תחלל your daughter and make her a harlot להזנותה. I would add living in Israel, hopefully, prevents assimilation where she (your daughter) marries a non-Jew. Of course, a Jewish girl that has sex with non-Jews and has babies, these babies are 100% Jewish and she is not a harlot. Any thoughts anybody?

  2. Allow me to continue.
    ויקרא י”ט

    (לב) מִפְּנֵי שֵׂיבָה תָּקוּם וְהָדַרְתָּ פְּנֵי זָקֵן וְיָרֵאתָ מֵּאֱלֹהֶיךָ אֲנִי יְקֹוָק: פ
    בעל הטורים ויקרא פרשת קדושים פרק יט פסוק ל
    סמך שבתותי תשמרו ל אל תפנו אל האובות. שהשואל אוב אינו עונה בשבת (סנהדרין סה ב):
    אני ה'. וסמיך ליה מפני שיבה תקום. אמר הקדוש ברוך הוא אני כבדתי זקנים שנאמר (ישעיה כד כג) ונגד זקניו כבוד (ספרי בהעלותך פ' צב, ויק"ר יא ח):
    “They shall be gathered in a dungeon As captives are gathered; And shall be locked up in a prison. But after many days they shall be remembered. Then the moon shall be ashamed, And the sun shall be abashed. For the Lord of Hosts will reign On Mount Zion and in Jerusalem, And the Presence will be revealed to His elders.” (Isaiah 24:22-23).
    Sanhedrin 65b
    “And this question was asked by Turnusrufus [Tineius Rufus, a Roman Governor of Judea] of R. Akiba: Wherein does this day [the Sabbath] differ from any other? He replied: Wherein does one man differ from another [Why is one a noble and one a commoner? referring to the high office which Rufus held]? Because my Lord [the Emperor] wishes it. The Sabbath too, R. Akiba rejoined, then, is distinguished because the Lord wishes so. He replied: I ask this: Who tells you that this day is the Sabbath?’ — He answered: ‘Let the river Sabbation [cf. Plinius, Hist. Nat. XXI, 2, and Josephus, Wars, VII, 5] prove it; let the Ba'al ob prove it [who cannot conjure up the dead on that day]; let thy father's grave, whence no smoke ascends on the Sabbath [The whole week smoke ascended from his grave, as he was being burnt in the fires of purgatory: but even the wicked in Gehenna have rest from their torments on the Sabbath], prove it. He said to him: ‘You have shamed, disgraced, and reviled him [by this proof].”
    Alas, the wicked Romans did kill Rabbi Akiva. This is the source of the belief that the wicked in hell also rest on the Sabbath in Israel. Bravo Rabbi Akiva stood up and gave back to the teasing of the Roman official. This is like Sam Pivnik in his Survivor (London 2012) tells how the SS gave him severe 20 lashes pp. 161-2:
    “Without thinking, I told the Steiger to piss off ...It felt as though I was detached from my body, looking down at that stupid yid Szlamek who didn’t know when to keep his mouth shut. It was a lesson learned.”
    I say bravo to Rabbi Akiva and to Sam Pivnik and to the Polish Ghetto uprising and to all those who resist and fight back to our evil tormentors. “For the Lord of Hosts will reign On Mount Zion and in Jerusalem, And the Presence will be revealed to His elders”---we pray soon in our lifetime.

  3. Here's the thing with hydroxycholoroquine. It can affect the electrical rhythm of the heart. In the wrong person, that means the drug can slowly lengthen one part of the rhythm until the heart goes into an unstable fibrillation, killing the patient. Therefore anyone taking this drug long-term is given an EKG before starting it. That message seems to have been lost in this panic.

  4. While a Jewish girl living in Israel, has better odds of ending up marrying a Jewish boy, unfortunately it's not guaranteed. Which is why the "Yad Le'achim" organization exists, in order to save all those "Achmad ben Sarahs", who were born from Muslim fathers.

    According to the Halacha, a Jewish woman who has sex with a non-Jew, has the status of a "zonah" (harlot).
    Sources: Rambam (Issurei Biah, 18:2), Shulchan Aruch (EH 6:8)

  5. I have been trying to warn people about this. They mostly don't listen. It's a Hydroxychloroquine Cult. Most people are inexperienced with clinical trial evidence and drug development unless somehow professionally involved or related to that field. They take the word of certain officials and researchers as gospel because it is what they want to hear. And once this "truth" is cherrypicked, no contrasting voice or perspective will be given credence. Because it must be some kind of conspiracy to harm that motivates any act to get in the way of this cult belief. Conspiratorial thinking is rampant. I see a dishonest media as bearing much of the guilt for this.

  6. The translation of Zonah in these halachic terms is not necessarily correct, e.g. harlot. Rambam brings a distinction between a Kedesha and a Zonah. A kedesha , he says, is permitted to a Kohen, whereas a Zonah is not. It is a bit liek the word "mamzer" , whcih is loosely translated as "bastard" and also in slang has the same meaning as the slang "bastard", but a legal bastard is not the same as a Mamzer. In halacha , a bastard has virtually no pgam, whereas a Mamzer has a major pgam.

  7. there are a lot of conspiracy nuts out there, it is amazing
    USA seems to be the worst "reservoir" for these nuts. mainly Hicktown trash who have little or no education, and buy into all these youtube junk videos. But they are in denial of there being a pandemic.
    There was or stil may be a gay movement that was denying AIDs, and were acting as if it doesn't exist.

    I think the HCQ bubble has been largely deflated, but it was based on the acceptance that there is a pandemic. There are crazies who are saying there isn't one - but they cannto even argue rationally, they just act like spoilt kids.



  10. Your video is a non sequitur, but predictably another conspiracy theory. I guess you were trying to prove my point?

  11. Allow me to expand:
    Midrash Rabbah - Genesis XI:5
    “The wicked Tinneus Rufus [a Roman governor of Judea; v, Sanh, 65b] asked R. Akiba: Why does this day [the Sabbath] differ from other days? Why does one man differ from other men? He [R. Akiba] retorted. What did I ask you and what did you answer me? inquired he [Tinneus]. You asked me, he [R. Akiba] replied, why does the Sabbath differ from all other days, and I answered you, Why does Rufus differ from other men. Because the emperor desired to honor him, said he [Tinneus]. Then this day, too, the Holy One wished to honor. How can you prove it to me? [that this is indeed the seventh day] Let the river Sambatyon prove it, which carries stones the whole week [The strong force of its current carries along stones and rubble, rendering it unnavigable. It is a mythical river; v. Theodor ad loc. and Neub. Geogr., p. 33] but allows them to rest on the Sabbath. You are evading the question [lit. you are drawing me away--to a distant place; you quote as proof a distant river I have never seen], he [Tinneua] exclaimed. Then let him who brings up [the dead by] his male genital prove it, he [R. Akiba] replied, for every day he [the dead] comes up but not on the Sabbath [This refers to a kind of necromancer (ba'al-ob) who brought up the dead by means of the membrum virile]. He [Tinneus] went and made a test with his own father: every day he [Tinneus’s dead father] came up, but on the Sabbath he [Tinneus’s dead father] did not come up. After the Sabbath he [Tinneus] brought him [Tinneus’s dead father] up [again]. Father, said he [Tinneus], have you become a Jew after death! Why did you ascend during the whole week but not on the Sabbath? ' He who does not keep the Sabbath among you [living people] of his own free will must keep it here [in purgatory] in spite of himself. But what toil have you there [in purgatory]? He [Tinneus] demanded. The whole week we [the wicked in purgatory] undergo judgment, but on the Sabbath we [the wicked in purgatory] rest. Then he [Tinneus] went back to R. Akiba and said to him: If it is as you say that the Holy One, blessed be He, honors the Sabbath, then He should not stir up winds or cause the rain to fall on that day. Woe to that man [Tinneus] [lit. let fainting come upon that man]! He [R. Akiba] exclaimed; it is like one who carries [objects] four cubits [The whole universe is God's private domain, as it were, and when He moves the winds and rain it is to Him like carrying in private ground, which is permitted even on the Sabbath].”
    When I was a PhD student in economics at Fordham University, once, I was in the sauna of the Fordham gym alone with a priest. We chatted. I asked him how could the Christians change the day of rest to Sunday when for 40 years the manna fell daily, double on Friday, and never on Saturdays? He replied what’s the difference as long as we love one another. Yikes---Fordham rejected my PhD dissertation, later published, and later CUNY gave me a PhD for basically the same work. Thank you, God in heaven.

  12. Non-Israelites were never given the Sabbath

    Shemos 31:13
    And you, speak to the CHILDREN OF ISRAEL and say: 'Only keep My Sabbaths! For it is a sign between Me and you for your generations, to know that I, the Lord, make you holy.

    Shemos 31:16
    Thus shall the CHILDREN OF ISRAEL observe the Sabbath, to make the Sabbath throughout their generations as an everlasting covenant.

    Shemos 31:17
    Between Me and the CHILDREN OF ISRAEL, it is forever a sign...

    Devarim 5:15
    "And you shall remember that you were a slave in the land of Egypt, and that the Lord your God took you out from there with a strong hand and with an outstretched arm; THEREFORE, the Lord, your God, commanded you to observe the Sabbath day."

    Was all of mankind enslaved in Egypt, and redeemed, and THEREFORE commanded to observe God's Sabbath?

  13. Insisting that there is already a "cure" (and that it's not being implemented, is being suppressed, etc) is another form of denying there is a pandemic.
    'REALLY, we don't need to do xyz because it's as simple as everyone just overdosing HCQ and getting more vitamins and this whole thing disappears'
