(Aug. 12, 2021) — A video posted by America’s Frontline Doctors (AFLDS) on Wednesday depicts Dr. Vladimir Zelenko testifying remotely to the Ma’aleh Adumim Rabbinic Court in Israel about his view of the COVID-19 injections’ suitability for children.
Zelenko was introduced by a member of the group who said, “Dr. Zelenko developed his now-famous ‘Zelenko Protocol’ which has saved countless lives worldwide.”
According to The Jerusalem Post, Ma’aleh Adumim is “one of the most respected halachic authorities in Israel.” “Halachic” is defined as “relating to or connected with the Halacha,” which is “the body of Jewish law supplementing the scriptural law and forming especially the legal part of the Talmud.”
“The Talmud (/ˈtɑːlmʊd, -məd, ˈtæl-/; Hebrew: תַּלְמוּד Tálmūḏ) is the central text of Rabbinic Judaism and the primary source of Jewish religious law (halakha) and Jewish theology,” Wikipedia states.
According to the Jewish Virtual Library, Ma’aleh Adumim is:
a suburb of Israel’s capital, barely three miles outside Jerusalem’s city limits, a ten-minute drive away. It was established by 23 families on a hilltop about 1,500 feet above sea level overlooking the Judean desert, the Jerusalem Hills, Mt. Scopus and the Mount of Olives in 1975. The name refers to the reddish hues of the rock formations along the route from the Jordan Valley to Jerusalem. Ma’ale Adumim is described in the Book of Joshua (15:6-18) as a border area between the tribes of Judah and Benjamin.
Launched by 23 pioneer families on the seventh night of Chanukah in 1975, Ma’aleh Adumim became a local council in 1979. As a result, the settlement received official recognition and now operates within the framework of a municipality.
From fewer than two dozen families, the outpost grew to 20,000 just 20 years later. In 1991, the government declared Ma’ale Adumim the first official city in Judea and Samaria, and today it is the largest Jewish city in the territories, with a population of 40,000. Most of the city’s residents are middle class and traditional; approximately 20 percent are religious (and are served by 28 synagogues). About 15 percent come from the United States, another 15 percent are from the former Soviet Union.
In late December Zelenko, who is based in mid-state New York, was banned from Twitter and other social media for promoting hydroxychloroquine as a component of the “Zelenko Covid-19 Prophylaxis Protocol” and “Treatment Protocol” for the coronavirus. The other elements of the protocols, Zelenko asserts, are elemental zinc, vitamins D3 and C, and quercetin or EGCG. The particular combination depends on the individual’s risk level, Zelenko states on his website.
For “young healthy people,” Zelenko recommends no preventive treatment. “It is advantageous for these patients to be exposed to Covid-19, build up their antibodies and have their immune system clear the virus,” he states. “This will facilitate the development of herd immunity and help prevent future Covid-19 pandemics. However, if these patients desire prophylaxis against Covid-19, then they should take the protocol noted below,” which he designates for those at “moderate” risk of contracting the disease.
In July 2020, Zelenko co-authored a report titled, “Early Risk-Stratified Treatment with Zinc Plus Low Dose Hydroxychloroquine and Azithromycin: A Retrospective Case Series Study” concluding that “Risk stratification-based treatment of COVID-19 outpatients as early as possible after symptom onset with the used triple therapy, including the combination of zinc with low dose hydroxychloroquine, was associated with significantly less hospitalizations and 5 times less all-cause deaths.”
In an interview with Human Events early this year, Zelenko said that hydroxychloroquine must be used with zinc in order to be effective on COVID-19. “The studies that were done on HCQ did not include the use of Zinc,” he told HE’s News Editor and Director of Operations, Brent Hamachek. “HCQ is what opens the cell and enables Zinc to attack the virus. One is not effective without the other, or without a suitable substitute for HCQ. The studies were designed to fail.”
“The key is early intervention.” Zelenko further told Hamachek. “You can say that the failure of the medical and political community to adopt demonstrated effective treatment techniques has led to the unnecessary death of approximately 250,000 people.”
As the coronavirus pandemic emerged around the world last year, Dr. Didier Raoult, director of the infectious disease department at the University of Marseilles, advocated the use of hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin to treat COVID-19 patients. Criticism of the empirical data he used in a paper supporting his position resulted in Raoult’s filing of a lawsuit against the researcher, who reportedly had found inaccurate data in approximately 60 other publications from the same institution.
Raoult’s clinical trials are now under investigation, RFI reports. On May 27, 2020, the French health minister ordered a halt to all use of hydroxychloroquine for COVID-19 patients based on a study which reported, “Hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine, often in combination with a second-generation macrolide, are being widely used for treatment of COVID-19, despite no conclusive evidence of their benefit. Although generally safe when used for approved indications such as autoimmune disease or malaria, the safety and benefit of these treatment regimens are poorly evaluated in COVID-19.”
“The anti-malaria drug has been especially controversial in the United States, as President Trump touted it as a coronavirus treatment and even said he took it himself for about two weeks,” CBS reported on June 4, 2020. Mr. Trump’s promotion of the drug contradicted warnings from his own government health experts, who cautioned against its widespread use in the pandemic.
“Even President Donald Trump said he had just finished taking a two-week course of the drug, a medication he has vigorously promoted as a preventative or curative treatment for the coronavirus, as evidence piles up that the drug may cause more harm than good,” RFI reported the day the French ban was announced.
According to the World Socialist Web Site (WSWS), “In December 2020, Raoult dismissed COVID-19 vaccines, which had proven highly effective in clinical trials, as ‘science fiction and, above all, as publicity.’ He made a right-wing comment opposing mandatory vaccination, saying: ‘If we played around with making vaccines mandatory, there would be a revolution. Luckily we haven’t done that.’ In fact, universal vaccination against the virus is a critical component of an international public health policy to halt the pandemic.”
In March 2020, the FDA approved hydroxychloroquine under “Emergency Use Authorization” (EUA) for treatment of coronavirus but revoked it three months later with the explanation: “The agency determined that the legal criteria for issuing an EUA are no longer met. Based on its ongoing analysis of the EUA and emerging scientific data, the FDA determined that chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine are unlikely to be effective in treating COVID-19 for the authorized uses in the EUA. Additionally, in light of ongoing serious cardiac adverse events and other potential serious side effects, the known and potential benefits of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine no longer outweigh the known and potential risks for the authorized use. This is the statutory standard for issuance of an EUA.”
On June 17, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) ceased its “Solidarity Trial” on hydroxychloroquine because “Data from Solidarity (including the French Discovery trial data) and the recently announced results from the UK’s Recovery trial both showed that hydroxychloroquine does not result in the reduction of mortality of hospitalised COVID-19 patients, when compared with standard of care.”
In May 2020, as reported in the American Journal of Medicine a year ago, the National Institutes of Health opened an outpatient clinical trial into the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine, which received FDA approval in 1955 for use against malaria, lupus and rheumatoid arthritis, and azithromycin to combat COVID-19 but terminated it after 30 days because of a lack of adequate enrollment.
For its part, the AJM included hydroxychloroquine, azithromycin and the antibiotic doxycycline in a roster of therapeutics to be considered when treating coronavirus early on.
For more than a year, AFLDS has advocated early treatment of coronavirus with hydroxychloroquine and other therapeutics, some “over-the-counter”; “protecting physician independence from government overreach”; freedom from “medical cancel culture and media censorship”; and combating “politicized science and Big Tech-filtered public health information.”
The Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care (FLCCC) Alliance recommends early treatment of COVID through the use of Ivermectin, vitamins C and D3, and Fluvoxamine if symptoms worsen. For prevention, it recommends social-distancing, handwashing and mask-wearing “when in confined, poorly ventilated, crowded indoor spaces with non-household members.”
According to its published protocols intended for physicians, the FLCCC favors Ivermectin over hydroxychloroquine for all phases of the disease.
Joe Biden has suggested that full FDA approval for coronavirus vaccines will occur in September, although normally final vaccine approval requires years of study and follow-up in those participating in clinical trials. At present, Biden has an acting FDA commissioner in place.
NIAID Director Dr. Anthony Fauci, who has changed his stated positions on mask-wearing, vaccines and lockdowns since the beginning of the announced “pandemic” in March 2020 and is now “chief medical adviser” to Biden, told MSNBC on August 10, 2021 that people’s concerns about a lack of FDA “official approval” of the coronavirus vaccines and hence their hesitancy to be injected “is really a false narrative.” “You should consider this as good as ‘fully approved,'” Fauci told anchor Mika Brzezinski. “It’s gonna happen; it’s really gonna happen.”
Fauci said he believes that governors, “schools” and private organizations should “mandate” administration of the vaccines to rein in the pandemic. “I’m sorry; I know people must like to have their individual freedom and not be told to do something, but I think we’re in such a situation right now that under certain circumstances, mandates should be done,” he said on the same network.
While Fauci additionally claimed “the vaccines protect very well against infection,” Zelenko, Dr. Joseph Mercola and others believe widespread vaccination can lead to fast-traveling “breakthrough variants” resistant to vaccines.
Despite his professed belief in the efficacy and safety of the vaccines, Fauci is now advocating for the development of therapeutics to fight the virus.
Side effects reported to the national Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) linked to the coronavirus vaccines by observers include “vertigo,” “sinusitis,” “product preparation issue,” “product storage error,” “pain,” “joint swelling,” “gait disturbance,” “blindness,” “visual impairment,” elevated or lowered blood pressure, “erythema,” (skin rash), “dyspnoea” (shortness of breath), “death,” “decreased appetite” and hundreds of others. As stated on the VAERS website, “Reports may include incomplete, inaccurate, coincidental and unverified information” and “The number of reports alone cannot be interpreted or used to reach conclusions about the existence, severity, frequency, or rates of problems associated with vaccines,” among other disclaimers.
In late June, Wisconsin U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson held a press conference during which a half-dozen individuals described serious, life-altering events following administration of the vaccines and their inability to obtain assistance for their sizable medical and other expenses.
At 1:00 in the video, Zelenko revealed that Trump and his former personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, were patients of his, along with Jair Bolsonaro, president of Brazil, and the Israeli health minister, Yaakov Litzman.
“Regarding children, the only reason you would want to treat a child is if you believe in child sacrifice,” Zelenko told the council. ” “…Any time you evaluate any therapeutic, you need to look at three perspectives: ‘Is it safe?’ ‘Does it work?’ and ‘Do you need it?’…There has to be a medical necessity.”
Quoting data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for children “under the age of 18 that are healthy,” Zelenko said, “the survival rate is 99.998% survival rate with no treatment.” Citing data compiled by another physician, Dr. Yiddon, Zelenko stated, “The influenza virus is more dangerous to children than COVID-19…”
On July 23, 2021, the CDC stated of “children and teens,” COVID-19 and vaccines:
CDC recommends everyone 12 years and older should get a COVID-19 vaccination to help protect against COVID-19. Widespread vaccination is a critical tool to help stop the pandemic. People who are fully vaccinated can resume activities that they did prior to the pandemic. Learn more about what you and your child or teen can do when you have been fully vaccinated. Children 12 years and older are able to get the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine.
As to efficacy and safety, the CDC claims:
COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective. COVID-19 vaccines were evaluated in tens of thousands of participants in clinical trials. The vaccines met the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) rigorous scientific standards for safety, effectiveness, and manufacturing quality needed to support emergency use authorization (EUA)…
Millions of people in the United States have received COVID-19 vaccines since they were authorized for emergency use by FDA. These vaccines have undergone and will continue to undergo the most intensive safety monitoring in U.S. history. This monitoring includes using both established and new safety monitoring systems pdf icon[PDF – 83 KB] to make sure that COVID-19 vaccines are safe.
Two of the three COVID-19 vaccines developed thus far and available in the U.S. are “mRNA,” “a new type of vaccine to protect against infectious diseases,” according to the CDC. “mRNA vaccines teach our cells how to make a protein—or even just a piece of a protein—that triggers an immune response inside our bodies,” the CDC further states. “The benefit of mRNA vaccines, like all vaccines, is those vaccinated gain protection without ever having to risk the serious consequences of getting sick with COVID-19.”
Reuters, whose CEO, James C. Smith, sits on the Pfizer Board of Directors, a fact not disclosed by the outlet, agrees with the CDC that coronavirus vaccines are “safe and effective” and has worked to dispel reports claiming the injections could result in mass death. Reuters notes, however, that “five years” of data is not yet available on any long-term side effects.
“Anaphylaxis” and blood clots have been reported after vaccinations, the CDC reports, but “long-term side effects are unlikely.”
A link from the CDC’s website to the “FDA’s Vaccine Product Approval Process” is no longer active.
Vaccine development is a long, complex process, often lasting 10-15 years and involving a combination of public and private involvement.
The current system for developing, testing, and regulating vaccines developed during the 20th century as the groups involved standardized their procedures and regulations.
In October, themilsource.com reported:
Traditionally, vaccines contain either weakened or dead forms of a microorganism, its toxins, or purified signature proteins of a virus. The introduction of this weakened or dead virus allows the body to recognize it as a threat and develop immunity to protect itself against it.
Since money for a vaccine was quickly allocated, the companies were able to fast-track the rigorous testing needed to meet trial standards in a much quicker time-frame. The vaccine has since been tested on 43,500 people in six countries.
According to a an AFLDS lawsuit filed on July 19 by Atty. Thomas Renz, a CDC insider provided a sworn affidavit claiming that VAERS data showing at least “45,000” deaths “within 72 hours” reported after the administration of COVID-19 vaccines has not been released publicly. The suit asks the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to halt “any existing or further authorization for use in children under the age of 16,
of any of the COVID-19 ‘vaccines’1 that have been approved under the Emergency Use Authorization (“EUA”)…”
Zelenko said he believes children do not require the vaccine because the cohort has “no risk or dying” from the coronavirus. “Why would you inject them with a poison death shot?” he asked rhetorically during his address to the council. He referred to Israel and Seychelles, which he said have the highest vaccination rates in the world, greater than 80%, and “are experiencing a Delta outbreak.” “If you vaccinated the majority of your population, why are you still having an outbreak?” he asked. “Why would you then give a third shot of the same stuff that didn’t work the first two times? That’s whether or not it works.”
As for “safety” of the vaccines, Zelenko told the council there are “three levels”: “acute,” “sub-acute,” and “long-term.”
“The number 1 risk of the shot is blood clots,” he said, again citing Dr. Yiddon. “According to the Salk Institute, when a person gets an injection…the body becomes a spike-producing factory, making trillions of spikes which migrate to the endothelium, which is the inner lining of your blood vessels, and it’s basically little thorns on the inside of your vasculature. As the blood cells flow through it, they get damaged; they cause blood clots. If that happens in the heart, it’s a heart attack; if it happens in the brain, it’s a stroke.”
“Forty percent” of strokes, Zelenko said, are taking place “within the first 3-4 days of injection of this poison death shot.”
Myocarditis, or inflammation of the heart, has been discovered in youths, Zelenko noted.
The CDC has responded to reports of mycarditis and pericarditis with:
Since April 2021, increased cases of myocarditis and pericarditis have been reported in the United States after mRNA COVID-19 vaccination (Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna), particularly in adolescents and young adults. There has not been a similar reporting pattern observed after receipt of the Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine (Johnson & Johnson).
In most cases, patients who presented for medical care have responded well to medications and rest and had prompt improvement of symptoms. Reported cases have occurred predominantly in male adolescents and young adults 16 years of age and older. Onset was typically within several days after mRNA COVID-19 vaccination, and cases have occurred more often after the second dose than the first dose. CDC and its partners are investigating these reports of myocarditis and pericarditis following mRNA COVID-19 vaccination.
CDC continues to recommend COVID-19 vaccination for everyone 12 years of age and older given the risk of COVID-19 illness and related, possibly severe complications, such as long-term health problems, hospitalization, and even death.
Dr. Robert W. Malone, considered the inventor of mRNA contruction and whose work Zelenko invoked at 15:10, told Steve Bannon of “War Room” July 31 that mycarditis in children following vaccination is no minor issue.
The likelihood of miscarriages in pregnant women during the first trimester who take the vaccine “goes up by a factor of 8,” Zelenko said. “That’s preliminary data; it may change with time.”
Zelenko said that studies of the vaccines conducted on animals which appeared to show favorable results by the generation of antibodies often resulted in the animals’ death. “…those studies were not done,” he added. “You are the study right now. The Pfizer CEO said, ‘Israel is the biggest laboratory in the world'” in an apparent reference to a statement made by Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla during a visit to Israel in February.
Bourla expressed optimism that “transmission” of the virus would be contained as a result of the wide administration of the vaccine.
The “long-term consequences” of the vaccines Zelenko said, is their negative impact on fertility in both men and women and that they “increase the risk of cancer.”
He compared what he said is Israel’s endorsing of “medical experimentation” on its people to the Josef Mengele‘s atrocities committed against Jews in concentration camps.
According to Bloomberg News on August 1, “Half of the infections in Israel now are among the fully vaccinated, and public health officials are beginning to see signs of more serious disease among them, said Sharon Alroy-Preis, the nation’s Director of Public Health Services.”
“Booster shots” are now recommended in Israel, the article reported, and the U.S. is expected to follow suit for those considered “immunocompromised.” “Doctors say it is increasingly clear that many such patients are still vulnerable to Covid following vaccination because they may not mount an effective immune response to the shots,” NBC News reported Monday.
