Scoundrel Time

Lynne McTaggart

In 1953, the award-winning and much lauded American playwright and author Lillian Hellman was called to testify before the Committee on House Un-American Activities (HUAC), chaired by Senator Joseph (‘Have you now or have you ever been a Communist’) McCarthy.

 Like many other intellectuals in the creative or academic spheres remotely suspected of being a Communist sympathizer at any point in their lives, she was essentially told that she could save her neck by exposing suspected communists among her acquaintances, or go to trial for political subversion.

Hellman refused to hand over any names – famously announcing “I cannot and will not cut my conscience to fit this year's fashions...” – and also managed to avoid standing trial.  

But like so many of her friends in the screenwriting and literary community, she was blacklisted from much future work, sustaining enormous financial and personal loss.

Twenty years later, Hellman published Scoundrel Time, a detailed memoir of her time during the Red scare, highlighting all the central scoundrels such as McCarthy and his henchman, a young Richard Nixon.

But she reserves her greatest scorn for those in the intellectual and creative fields – all former champions of the right to freedom of speech – who had either implicated their friends or colluded with McCarthyism by simply staying silent.

Evidence is now emerging that we have been living through another, even more insidious Scoundrel Time, where the government, medical establishment, scientific community and media (including social media) actively discredited or censored doctors on the frontline who were producing promising treatments for Covid-19. 

This is all detailed in a book called Overcoming the Covid Darkness: How Two Doctors Successfully Treated 7000 Patients.  The authors are Dr. George Fareed, a Harvard Medical School educated doctor and professor and expert in treating viruses, and Dr Brian Tyson.  

Fareed has taught at Harvard, held three patients in biotech products, created AIDS treatments, been a medical missionary (his father had worked with Albert Schweitzer), and is currently a family care physician, revered by his California community. 

When the pandemic first hit, Fareed teamed up with Tyson, an emergency care specialist with his own first response clinic. 

They began formulating a treatment based on their knowledge of viruses and emergency care, and their observations of symptoms patients were presenting with. Before long, they created a short-term cocktail of repurposed FDA approved anti-virals, steroids, anti-coagulants plus supplements like zinc.  

They saved the lives of more than 7000 people – and in their book they detail the work of some 15 other doctors around the world who used cocktails like theirs and saved more than 100,000 others. Most patients got better in days. 

Work, you might say, worthy of a Nobel prize, recognition of the United Nations and the World Health Organization, not least governments in the US, UK and elsewhere.

Instead of plaudits, Drs Fareed and Tyson were ignored or repeatedly attacked by attempts to discredit their findings.  

One study published in May 2020 in the Lancet by a prominent cardiologist concluded that hydroxychloroquine was not only ineffective but also harmful, causing increased cases of cardiac arrhythmias.  

The research was subsequently discredited and the study later retracted by the Lancet, but only after it had done its damage, convincing the public and the press that HCQ was nothing more than dangerous snake oil.

Over the summer of 2020, Fareed and Tyson wrote to their state legislature, congressman,  the California Health Department, the US President, and then sent an open letter to Dr. Anthony Fauci, detailing their treatment success, pointing out the scientific evidence for the use of their cocktail, asking pages of pointed questions about the US’s response to the pandemic and outlining a national plan to treat Covid-19.  

They never received a response. 

In autumn 2020 Fareed was one of three doctors testifying in Congress about the success of the Covid cocktail.  He also provided details of his national plan. (( senate-hearing-covid-19-outpatient-treatment)

Nothing came of the testimony, but Fareed and Tyson kept up their campaign, speaking at a Rome summit of worldwide physicians united against government restrictions prohibiting them from prescribing what they knew were safe and effective treatments for Covid. 

Dr Tyson took out a personal loan of $250,000 to buy protective personal equipment (PPE).

Perhaps most scandalous of all, their Covid response was politicized, with they and other doctors opting for early anti-viral treatment labeled as right-wing Trumpian crazies. 

Dr. Tyson was threatened with losing his license.

Undeterred, they put up videos describing their protocol, which were immediately removed by social media.  Other scientists carried out a detailed study of their patients to confirm their own empirical results. 

Tyson and Fareed continued re-posting their results and getting the word out through their book. 

The problem was simple:  the government had invested all hope (and money) in several vaccines and new vaccines can only be rushed through emergency regulatory channels if there are no viable medical alternatives.   

There’s a special place in hell for Anthony Fauci, for shutting down simple treatments that could have saved millions of lives, for all the drug researchers who falsified data about vaccine side effects, for government bodies like the FDA and the CDC who hid all the data about vaccine casualties, for every person who made this issue a political, rather than a medical one.

 But the greatest scoundrels of all are those in the media and elsewhere, all the ‘free speech’ advocates who watched this travesty and never asked the right questions, never spoke up, didn’t want to believe any medical treatment that might not fit their political persuasion.  

They, more than anyone, let the scoundrels get away with it.

  1. Bolsheviks who hate God and freedom have been infiltrating the United States of America since 1776 when the Illuminati was created. People laughed at McCarthy saying that he saw a Communist under every bed - now, we know that there are 3!

    Speaking of criminals, knowing that Zuckerberg makes money by gathering Facebook users' data and with the movies "" and "2000 Mules," proving Zuckerberg spent over $460,000,000 of this money to steal the U.S. 2020 election, why, pray tell, is anyone still using Facebook?

    Those who will not learn from history are condemned to repeat it - - but why help it along?

  2. Thanks for covering this Lynne!

    Big Pharma is a criminal organization who's business model is to get you on drugs that cause side effects requiring you to take more of their drugs. That has nothing to do with health care and well being. The FDA has been suppressing cures at their behest since it's inception. Millions have died needlessly because of this corruption.

  3. Perhaps if people, your community members, had had access to these treatments, they could have lived. Covid is serious business, unfortunately it was turned into big pharma business. Whatever one's stance is on the jabs, denying access to treatments is criminal.

  4. I congratulate Lynne on this article - and wish she would tackle other 'media fairy tales' e.g. about the Russia-Ukraine conflict in the same tuthful manner.

    1. I have no direct knowledge of the current situation - however, the Russian-speaking people in Ukraine were
      moved their by their government some time ago. Essentially as a civilian occupying force.>

      Several decades ago, Ukraine agreed to give up its nuclear weapons - under a few conditions.>
      - Their sovereignty would be respected by Russia. - Their borders would remain unchanged. - The USA and the UK agreed to defend the Ukraine from attack or invasion.>> Since then, Russia has invaded twice, an twice seized Ukraine territory. Both times, neither the UK nor the USA lived up to their part of the treaty - and Ukraine lost large areas and important ports to Russian invasion. >>
      Don't take my word or it; please verify this information for yourself.

  5. Thank you Lynne, A sigh of relief for getting this information through you too. It aligns totally with the power of intention or the lack thereof. love

  6. I'm in agreement with Lynn and Maureen I'm in agreement with Lynne. Maureen C above also spells out what happened. This was and is an evil perpetrated on the world. I'm glad people are waking up and seeing it for what it is. Unfortunately 30% of the population is lost and will never see beyond their psychological brainwashing of the powers that should not be.

  7. It's always very suspicious when only ONE "solution" to an illness is allowed. If the government officials and pharmaceutical companies really cared about people's health, there would be an active exploration and collaboration with anyone who has treatments that seem to help or cure the illness, rather than censorship and demonization of everything other than the "approved" method. I'm so surprised that more people don't see this for what it is.

  8. Where's the evidence? There's one link in this post but many claims of evidence. You sound like election deniers who claim mountains of evidence that's never shared. Post the evidence and I'll read it.

  9. Yes to it all, and scorn to those who blocked these viable treatments.
    As a wake up call to trust our internal knowing and reject what is driven purely by the desire for wealth (money), the last 2 years or so was a real test of faith.
    Thanks to all those who continue to offer the truth, wtddty being a primary source.

  10. In case anyone out there needs this info-
    The Frontline Covid Critical Care Alliance protocols for - prevention - treatment - post vaccine help -
    'long Covid' treatment - treatment for those hospitalized with Covid:

    Pretty much anyone who has any knowledge of standard, proven epidemic* protocols was shocked
    by the official response. Many of these physicians and other highly credentialed professionals in the
    medical field tried to, share their knowledge and experience - and ask the relevant questions - and
    were 'shut down', de-platformed, censored, and threatened with the loss of their medical license -
    or worse.

    THIS was a major 're flag' that something was.... 'off'.

    *An epidemic is a serious disease that spreads through a significant number of people in an area
    with a substantial percent of those infected dying from the disease.

    A pandemic is an epidemic occurring in several countries at the same time.

    Note: Around 2006, the WHO changed their definition of a "pandemic"
    so that now, the common cold could be potentially labeled a "pandemic".
    Use the Wayback Machine or other Internet archive to look up the WHO's
    pre-2006 definition, and compare it to their current version.

    Over the past 2 1/2 years, the meaning of several key words have been changed,
    or simply misused.

    For example, a medical 'case' has always been a patient with a set of symptoms,
    NOT simply a test result.
    The Covid tests are EUA- by definition in the regulations for Emergency Use Authorized medical products these tests are "investigational": experimental. (The words 'authorized' and 'approved' are similar in meaning in everyday speech, but
    have legally distinct meanings in the context of medical practice and the FDA.)

    It is long established fact that testing a large number of asymptomatic people -
    even when using well-proven tests - will result in a large number of FALSE POSITIVES.
    PCR is known to be unsuitable as a diagnostic tool.
    Yet this was the "test" used almost exclusively for the first year+ of the pandemic.


  11. Thank you so much Lynne for posting this and for your ongoing courage re seeking the truth. As a registered psychotherapist and counsellor, my job is about looking at the whole picture, looking at both sides and digging deep....even though the truth is sometimes uncomfortable or 'distasteful'......(or as with COVID, seemingly 'unbelievable'). When I was doing my training and at uni writing assignments and studying, we weren't allowed to just listen to 'heresay' or google or listen to media, or what we were 'told'.........we had to do our research and look at peer reviewed evidence based research. I don't often use the word EVIL but what is happening, the lying, deceit and corruption, the unnecessary deaths (by banning treatments that actually help) is evil and I liken it to the least with Hitler and his regime we knew who the 'bad guys' were. Unfortunately the web of corruption and deceit runs deep and far and the only 'conspiracy' happening is the power and control of corrupt people like Fauci and Gates and governments and leaders who are only interested in their own wants, needs and power.....not of the people they are supposed to be serving. Unfortunately you can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink. As Dr Mattias Desmet has stated in his talks, people only see what they want to see and believe.....even when faced with the facts. 'Kate' it's actually about 'digging deeper' and doing your research and looking at the facts. Thank God for people like you Lynne and for the many doctors, specialists, nurses, and ordinary people who are now speaking out and standing up to the bullying and coercion that is happening. Thank God for people like Dr Reiner Fuellmich who are persistent in uncovering the truth and working towards bringing those who are responsible to justice. Change doesn't happen overnight, but thank God I'm 'awake' and working towards. It's actually about us all 'stepping up' and taking responsibility.....this is how change happens. Thank you Lynne and all those who are speaking out.

  12. I agree with Lynne. Has anyone checked out Dr. Mercola who earlier on had a woman colleague of Dr. Fauci who relates her experience working with him. Makes interesting reading/listening. G.
