Have We Militarised Medicine?

17 April 2023

4.9 MINS

It’s war, Jim, but not as we know it…

‘In the absence of information, we make up stories.’ These words remind me we need truthful, unhindered, and accurate information to build understanding. The way to get information is to ask questions. And the way to get good information is to ask good questions.

Plenty of questions have been raised over the past three years, even with all the censorship. But things have taken off in recent weeks with ‘corker’ questions being asked in the US Government, the UK Parliament, and even our Australian Senate.

It’s made for some popcorn-worthy viewing.

Questions… Over the Covid era I’ve had plenty of them. Some answered, but most are not.

Questions like:

  • Why did our governments propagate so much fear during the pandemic?
  • Why wasn’t there any effort dedicated to exploring early treatment options?
  • Why were possible early treatment therapeutics banned from use in Australia despite widespread use overseas?
  • Why did AHPRA feel the need to tell medical professionals to effectively ‘fall in line’ with the vaccine rollout?
  • Why were healthy populations forced to vaccinate, or lose their jobs, access to education, or essential services?
  • Why does the provisional approval of the Covid so-called ‘vaccines’ continue despite data clearly showing alarming rates of significant adverse events? Rates that have seen previous vaccines suspended.

Why?!!!

Thankfully, I’m not the only one asking questions.

Renowned US cardiologist, Dr Peter McCullough, has been asking questions and has not stopped since the pandemic began. For the past three years McCullough, and doctors like him, have dedicated their lives to researching, treating and ultimately saving the lives of Covid patients around the globe.

I had the opportunity to ask Dr McCullough a few of my questions on his recent visit to Australia. He started with an interesting comparison between Australia and Texas.

“Texas has 29 million people, Australia, 26 million people. Texas has great cities, like Australia has great cities. It’s the same virus, we’re largely the same people… Texas and Australia would be a fair comparison.”

“Our hospital made its own decisions about the closure of operating rooms and catheterisation laboratories and when to reopen them. Quickly, in Texas, many different doctors and clinics began to learn how to treat the illness. And that took a lot of anxiety away from people and they felt like there was a way in which the problem could be managed and avoid hospitalisation and death. That was really the critical feature.”

He added:

“Texas was not perfect. We certainly had hospitalisations and deaths. But we had strong advocates. We had a senator, from the very beginning, who reached out to many of us – Senator Bob Hall. And he said: ‘I want to know what’s going on. I want to have town halls. I want the doctors to get on calls and tell me what’s going on in your ERs in your health systems. Are you learning how to treat it? Are there innovations?’”

In Australia, it was a different story. The ‘top-down’ flow of information involved very little consultation from coal-face doctors who were faced with managing the disease. As Australian doctors watched the pandemic unfold around the world, we had the advantage of learning from doctors abroad who were gaining extensive experience in early treatment. It wasn’t all sunshine and roses. Watching McCullough testify to the Texas Senate Committee in late 2020, his frustration at the lack of focus on treatments for patients with Covid was clear. Undeterred he, and others like him, including Dr Pierre Kory who joined McCullough on his visit to Australia, have been instrumental in providing information to the world about how to treat the infection. Their protocols included drugs like hydroxychloroquine, ivermectin, and repurposed drugs known for their pharmaceutical abilities to address various stages of the disease.

Meanwhile, Australia banned hydroxychloroquine for the treatment of Covid on March 2020. March! Ivermectin followed later in September 2021, curiously around the time many mandates came into effect as people were funnelled down the ‘vaccine or bust’ route.

Why?!!!

“I have the same question”, mused McCullough, who says hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin are currently used as first-line treatment in two dozen countries around the world.

I asked McCullough what his thoughts were on the role of medical boards and medical regulation.

“You’re referring to AHPRA”, McCullough deduces.

“The role of that body, in my view, is clinical competence. And then, being sure that the doctor or the professional is free of major behavioural issues, drug abuse, etc. That’s their role. That is the role. Prior to Covid, they had no special stake in any disease… The aberration was Covid. And we saw, both in the United States and Australia, these bodies take a particular interest in Covid. That they were going to determine what can be said and what couldn’t be said they weren’t going to determine what drugs could be used and not used. This is the first time in medicine that these bodies took on this very unusual aberrant behaviour.”

Aberrant is one word for it.

We explored the other ‘aberrant’ behaviours of the pandemic response along with The Spectator Australia’s Alexandra Marshall and historian John Leake. Leake co-authored Courage to face Covid-19 with McCullough. Soon we arrived at one of my biggest ‘why’ questions: why had we been funnelled down a ‘vaccine or bust’ path?

One word: countermeasures.

Countermeasures are devices and strategies used to eliminate an attack by an enemy force.

I first heard this term back in December 2022 thanks to the work of Katherine Watt and Sasha Latypova, who researched the legislative framework that enabled the ‘warp speed’ response to the virus. A framework that had its foundations laid decades ago. Indeed, it’s the only explanation I’ve heard that helps make sense of the ‘aberrant’ behaviours we’ve witnessed over the past three years.

“The military has biological threat programs. There’s one for smallpox, monkeypox, there’s one for anthrax”, explains McCullough in a recent presentation. “The military came up with the idea of messenger RNA vaccines, not Pfizer or Moderna, and NOT operation warp speed.”

Turns out the military has been playing with mRNA vaccines for over a decade. And the combination of three legislative items – Emergency Use Authorisation (EUA), Other Transaction Authority (OTA), and the PREP Act – enabled what many suspect could be the origins of the first worldwide military operation in medicine. The EUA gets rid of the FDA ‘safety and efficacy’ regulations under EUA so the FDA has no oversight; the OTA enables the Department of Defence to order undisclosed ‘military prototypes’ from pharma; and the PREP Act, which enables the plan to be rolled out.

“A military program was announced by Health and Human Services… and the Department of Defence, who ushered us into this vaccine era”, continues McCullough.

“The military emergency use authorisation is a mechanism to get rapid new technology into the military. It’s not a mechanism for the public. Its first application broadly to the public was the Covid pandemic. That’s the reason why the FDA doesn’t seem like they have any ownership over this. They can’t seem to respond to it. Because it’s a military program. This has a military origin to it. And the program is executed like a military program. No one will be spared. There are no exceptions.”

Think about it. If a virus emerged (from a US-funded lab, no less) and was interpreted as an act of ‘bioterrorism’, what would a response to that look like?

Would it look like a single-minded, fear-fuelled, authoritarian-style military operation to get every man, woman and child ‘countermeasured’?

It might just look like that.

I have more questions.

    “Why wasn’t there any effort dedicated to exploring early treatment options?

    Why were possible early treatment therapeutics banned from use in Australia despite widespread use overseas?

    Why does the provisional approval of the Covid so-called ‘vaccines’ continue despite data clearly showing alarming rates of significant adverse events? Rates that have seen previous vaccines suspended.”

    Why does Dr Sladden continue so doggedly telling lies, lies which have been refuted by clinical studies and the like time and time again, and now for the longest time? And if she’s not lying, how is it possible that a medical practitioner can be so unaware of the volumes of data which refute her claims?

    Her first claim regarding early treatment options is refuted by the fact that there were trials undertaken overseas on drugs like Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine, which proved them to be ineffective:

    https://medicalxpress.com/news/2023-02-evidence-ivermectin-ineffective-covid-.html
    https://www.cochrane.org/news/chloroquine-or-hydroxychloroquine-useful-treating-people-covid-19-or-preventing-infection

    I even made that point nearly a year ago in my own article published here:

    https://dailydeclaration.org.au/2022/05/30/response-to-a-doctor-speaks-covid-19-vaccination/

    So, if they were not approved here, then there was a very valid reason.

    Then there’s the misinformation about “so-called ‘vaccines’”. This is the lie that somehow mRNA vaccines (which are not the only type of vaccine available, so why the focus?) are unproven and experimental technology. This in spite of the well known and understood reality that there is a long and detailed record of over 40 years of research which has led to the development of these vaccines, which she should know also includes the fact that there have been human trials ongoing for the past decade, and successful animal trials going back even further.

    That false claim is followed by “alarming rates of significant adverse events”. First, how do you define “alarming”? For a start, it’s a word designed to provoke alarm in the reader, so it’s being used in a very suggestive fashion because it is not defined. Nor is there any definition for “significant”, which, coupled as it is with “alarming”, is designed to heighten alarm in the reader’s mind.

    And because Dr Sladden is a medical professional, she can be trusted, right?

    Wrong!

    There ARE serious adverse side effects. But they are extremely rare and mild. And Dr Sladden must know the statistics, as there’s a literal mountain of clinical trials and data collection from the billions of vaccinations around the world over the past two years. And when that mountain of data reveals that the incidence for most is between 1 in 100,000 and 1 in 1,000,000, and the most frequent, heart inflammation in young males, at 1 in 10,000, then you see how extremely coloured her use of language is. Especially when all of these are normally mild and self-correcting.

    Again, this issue was referenced in my own article in July last year. As was the claim that previous vaccines had been suspended for similar rates of adverse effects (https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lanres/article/PIIS2213-2600(22)00059-5/fulltext).

    And the fact that this all follows on from the first question she asks, which serves to encourage a fearful and cynical response from the reader: “Why did our governments propagate so much fear during the pandemic?”

    How is that even measurable? It seeks to establish the premise as undeniable fact without providing any ability for the reader to do anything but accept the proposition as a given. This is a shoddy debating tactic known as “elephant hurling”, where the writer throws summary arguments about complex issues to give the impression of weighty evidence. But there is no evidence here.

    The only evidence is that which leads to only two possible conclusions. As her claims are so easily refuted, especially by the kind of clinical data that she as a medical professional should have at her fingertips, then she is either consciously lying to support an anti-COVID agenda, or she is a most incompetent medical professional.

    No other conclusion is possible.

    Stunningly courageous work Julie – thank you.
    I needed to read it several times. It’s a challenge to digest….kinda like the experience of eating fibre after a fast.
    Your links are helpful though I am still trying to gain access to the Medical Journal article.
    Still, I am nothing if not persistent. And my time in the Jewish community taught me the value of Good questions – as opposed to questions.

    Dear Dr Julie, this paragraph is amazing:
    “Turns out the military has been playing with mRNA vaccines for over a decade. And the combination of three legislative items – Emergency Use Authorisation (EUA), Other Transaction Authority (OTA), and the PREP Act – enabled what many suspect could be the origins of the first worldwide military operation in medicine. The EUA gets rid of the FDA ‘safety and efficacy’ regulations under EUA so the FDA has no oversight; the OTA enables the Department of Defence to order undisclosed ‘military prototypes’ from pharma; and the PREP Act, which enables the plan to be rolled out.”
    To my mind, to my non – medical, but educated mind, this seems to join the dots for me. Time will tell, but the hallmarks of the military are all over this.
    My prayer is for the doctors and nurses to get back to their Hippocratic Oath as their guiding light not dictates from over reaching governments.
    Last night I saw a great piece from Dr Suneel Dhand https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1_LjqgImpGs I commend it to you if you have not seen it.
    Thank you Dr Julie for keeping this topic under the microscope. Human nature will so easily forget the pain we suffer, funny that. Our creator gave us a built in defense mechanism against bad news.

      It’s always educational when you get out your magnifying glass Jim.
      Indeed your closing words direct us to the mechanism of the Stress response (you call it bad news) I call it trauma.
      Like it or not we are all- now profoundly traumatised so yes, denial and dissociation kicks in.

      God is amazing !
      And this – is why there is once again and still, those who seek to destroy Christianity and Christian’s.

      “To my mind, to my non – medical, but educated mind, this seems to join the dots for me. Time will tell, but the hallmarks of the military are all over this.”

      The only hallmark here is the knowing deception of Dr McCullough, which is swallowed uncritically by Dr Sladden:

      ““The military came up with the idea of messenger RNA vaccines, not Pfizer or Moderna, and NOT operation warp speed.”

      Turns out the military has been playing with mRNA vaccines for over a decade. And the combination of three legislative items – Emergency Use Authorisation (EUA), Other Transaction Authority (OTA), and the PREP Act – enabled what many suspect could be the origins of the first worldwide military operation in medicine. The EUA gets rid of the FDA ‘safety and efficacy’ regulations under EUA so the FDA has no oversight; the OTA enables the Department of Defence to order undisclosed ‘military prototypes’ from pharma; and the PREP Act, which enables the plan to be rolled out.

      “A military program was announced by Health and Human Services… and the Department of Defence, who ushered us into this vaccine era”, continues McCullough.

      “The military emergency use authorisation is a mechanism to get rapid new technology into the military. It’s not a mechanism for the public. Its first application broadly to the public was the Covid pandemic. That’s the reason why the FDA doesn’t seem like they have any ownership over this. They can’t seem to respond to it. Because it’s a military program. This has a military origin to it. And the program is executed like a military program. No one will be spared. There are no exceptions.””

      This is a lie! As these articles show, it has been a decades long trail of research and development, with human trials on other vaccines several years before the pandemic began:

      https://www.statnews.com/2020/11/10/the-story-of-mrna-how-a-once-dismissed-idea-became-a-leading-technology-in-the-covid-vaccine-race/

      https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7910833/

      And none of the three legislative items he refers to – Emergency Use Authorisation (EUA), Other Transaction Authority (OTA), and the PREP Act, have anything that’s specific to the military. In fact, they are as general as can be. In fact, EUA has been around for several decades, as https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emergency_Use_Authorization shows:

      “EUAs are authorized by Section 564 of the Federal Food Drug and Cosmetic Act (FDCA) of 1938 (Public Law 75-717) as added and subsequently amended by the Project BioShield Act of 2004 (S. 15, Public Law 108–276) for funding of the development and procurement of medical countermeasures against CBRN threats.”

      All of this predates both the mRNA vaccines and the pandemic by many years. And to suggest that “CBRN threats” are the prime motivation for the development of these vaccines is yet another fear based conspiracy tale. As for the other two legislative items, they have absolutely nothing specific to anything military:

      https://www.era.nih.gov/erahelp/assist/Content/ASSIST_Help_Topics/OTA/OTA_About.htm

      https://www.wsgr.com/en/insights/basics-of-the-prep-act-and-liability-immunity-for-covid-19-countermeasures.html

      But this is also where logic fails Dr Sladden completely, as she is totally unaware of her own contradiction.
      First, she uses that tired old anti-vax trope, “so-called ‘vaccines’” to cast aspersions on the mRNA vaccines’ legitimacy. But next she repeats McCullough’s claim that “the military has been playing with mRNA vaccines for over a decade”.

      So in one breath it’s a non-vaccine, but in the next it’s a bioweapon??

    The Dr Peter McCullough video is 2 years old and amazingly relevant I would go as far as to say Prophetic.
    Was he the one who coined the term A Crisis Of compassion?

    Having read the article in your link for Alexandra Marshall ‘s piece I will pay much greater attention to her work from now on. Also helpful to find links within links.
    I still have not completed this particular “ tour of duty “ Julie but God willing , I will.

    I thank you Dr Julie Sladden for the courage you show in continuing to clearly articulate the truth behind Covid and the lockstep rollout across the globe of the measures employed to try and inject everyone. It is obvious to me that this scenario follows the playbook of the elites and military behind Event 201 scenario .
    That our Government and medical system was so eager to enforce this strategy on us was initially hard to believe, and has removed the trust I used to have in these institutions.
    I do trust in God and am convinced that this is the only place for us to look for solutions, and the first step is repentance for our rebellion against Him

    Thanks for your continued work to expose this travesty and silent ‘act of war’ perpetrated upon us.
    When I see the rats deserting the ship in the numbers they are, it gives me some hope that sometime there will be a prison for those who knowingly and willingly participated in this.
    Then I’m reminded of the scripture that says ‘the sins of some are evident here on earth and others not until the throne room’.
    You are valued and appreciated.

    Thank you Dr Julie ..good to see medical professionals help the people at large deal with medical tyranny that is still being pushed regardless of the emerging data that shows safe and effective is not true of experimental jabs for covid 19 ..we are praying for Doctors and Health Ministers and Chief Helalth officers etc in Oz

    • Kim Beazley 20 April 2023 at 5:43 pm - Reply

      When all vaccine mandates have long ago been lifted, where is this “medical tyranny” you mention? And where is this “emerging data that shows safe and effective is not true of experimental jabs for covid 19 “? And why, after two years are you still using a worn out anti-vax lie like “experimental jabs”?

  9. Stephen 19 April 2023 at 9:08 am - Reply

    And more questions are arising regularly and very few answered well or at all by those so called experts running Country …please could a medical person in power in western world stand up against medical tyranny …the Surgeon General in Florida USA has opposed Biden administration medical directives where he sees tgey are wrong …we can and should learn in Australia from people like this
