Why are Democrat state governors banning coronavirus drug Chloroquine?

Whatever evidence we have point to certain drugs, especially the anti-malaria drug Chloroquine, as being effective against the Wuhan COVID-19 coronavirus:

  • Hydroxychloroquine effective since 2005 (Breitbart)
  • Chloroquine 100% success rate with zinc (Gateway Pundit)
  • French peer-reviewed study of chloroquine 100% success rate (Daily Wire)
  • An international poll of thousands of doctors rated Hydroxycholoroquine the “most effective therapy” for COVID-19. But the survey also found that only 23% of U.S. medical professionals had prescribed the drug — far less than other countries. (New York Post)
  • Australian study found a single dose of anti-parasitic drug Ivermectin kills COVID-19 in lab by removing all genetic material of the virus within 48 hours (news.com.au)
  • Massive doses of vitamin C to treat coronavirus patients (New York Post)

In fact, the FDA recently approved limited use of two anti-malarial drugs, Chloroquine and Hydroxychloroquine, for COVID-19. (New York Post)

So why are some state governors banning the use of these drugs?

Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D) banned doctors from prescribing hydroxychloroquine and Z-Paks. (The Gateway Pundit)

Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak (D) even issued an emergency resolution restricting the prescription and distribution of Chloroquine and Hydroxychloroquine, ostensibly to prevent “unnecessary hoarding”. (Clash Daily)

Sisolak refused to reverse his order even after the FDA issued an emergency order approving the use of Hydroxychloroquine for use against COVID 19.

Adding to the irrationality, about a week after Sisolak issued the emergency declaration, news broke that his own Department of Corrections has been hoarding Hydroxychloroquine although no prisoner in state prisons has COVID-19. 360 News Las Vegas reports:

According to sources at the drug maker, Concordia Pharmaceuticals Inc, Nevada prisons ordered a large number of their anti-malaria Hydroxychloroquine drug under the name, Plaquenli. Nevada prisons has literally ZERO cases of prisoners infected with the COVID 19 virus to date. The Nevada Board of Pharmacies and the Governor claimed the rule barring doctors from prescribing the drug outside of hospitals was to stop hoarding. After Sisolak’s ban went into effect, the State Prison hoarded the drug in a mass just in case they had break out.

One is tempted to think Democrats Sisolak and  Whitmer don’t want COVID-19 patients to be cured or an end to the pandemic.

Nevada’s Democrat governor vetoes bill to abolish Electoral College

Our Founding Fathers created a federal republic, wherein the national government shares political power with state governments, instead of a centralized political system like China or the United Kingdom where political power is in the central government, and whatever powers are exercised by regional and local governments have been delegated to them — and thus, can also be taken away — by the national government.

To enable and uphold the American federation, the Founders created the U.S. Senate, in which each constituent state is represented by two senators, no matter the size of the state’s population. The Electoral College is another institution to prevent presidential elections from being determined by states with very large populations.

Cognizant that human passions can descend into mob-like behaviors, the Founders had another reason for the Electoral College: to prevent a tyranny of the (irrational) majority. The Founders’ fear of majority mob-rule was borne out less than 3 years after they created the Electoral College in 1787 when the French Revolution plunged the country into a decade of chaos and bloodbath.

Still in denial that Hillary Clinton had lost the 2016 presidential election and convinced that she had secured a majority of the popular vote, Democrats are mobilizing to abolish the Electoral College via the National Popular Vote interstate compact. To date, 14 states and the District of Columbia have passed legislation to give their 189 Electoral College votes to whichever presidential candidate wins the popular vote. The pact will only take effect if states holding the majority of the Electoral College’s 538 electoral votes join the agreement.

On May 21, 2019, by a 12-8 vote, the Nevada State Senate passed a bill to give the state’s 6 Electoral College votes to the winner of the presidential election’s national popular vote. Earlier, Nevada’s State Assembly had passed the bill 23-17. The addition of Nevada would boost the National Popular Vote interstate compact’s electoral votes to 195.

Happily, Nevada’s Democrat governor Steve Sisolak, who is threatened with a recall petition, surprised his critics by doing the right thing.

Gov. Steve Sisolak

As reported by The Hill, yesterday, Governor Sisolak vetoed Assembly Bill 186 that would have pledged Nevada’s Electoral College votes to the presidential candidate who wins the national popular vote.

Sisolak said in a statement:

After thoughtful deliberation, I have decided to veto Assembly Bill 186.

Once effective, the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact could diminish the role of smaller states like Nevada in national electoral contests and force Nevada’s electors to side with whoever wins the nationwide popular vote, rather than the candidate Nevadans choose.

I recognize that many of my fellow Nevadans may disagree on this point and I appreciate the legislature’s thoughtful consideration of this important issue.
