(Natural News) Major pharmaceutical and medical companies are actively censoring information that runs against Big Pharma-approved narratives, health care policy analyst Dr. Dave Janda said.
Janda, a retired orthopedic surgeon who also operates the podcast and radio show Operation Freedom, made the statement during an interview with Health Ranger Mike Adams.
According to Janda, the long-running censorship is part of an operation run by medical conglomerates in partnership with several prominent figures in both politics and Big Tech – a partnership Janda has since referred to as “the medical-industrial complex.”
This partnership, he said, would regularly scrub the Internet of any information that could cost major medical corporations money.
“It is all about the money – that is what it all comes down to. It comes down to their hatred for Trump, as you mentioned, it comes down to their totalitarian roots, it comes down to their ever-precious dollar and how much can go to their pockets,” Janda, who fell victim to a witch-hunt ordered by former President Barack Obama back in 2009 because of his vocal opposition to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care or “ObamaCare” Act, explained.
“Hydroxychloroquine, Zithromax, zinc – they’re pennies, but when you start looking into antivirals, if you start looking into vaccines, you’re looking at a hundred bucks, two hundred bucks three hundred – you’re looking at big bucks and that’s what drives this and that’s what’s so sick. That’s why you get de-platformed, why you get censored, why I get censored,” he said.
In his interview, Janda noted that the latest to fall victim to this censorship is the group America’s Frontline Doctors.
“This week, you had some doctors in front of the Supreme Court, as you mentioned, speaking about the benefits of hydroxychloroquine, and what happened? Their presentations on social media are deep-sixed,” Janda said, noting that every piece of information related to the facts mentioned by the group during their press conference has been completely taken off the internet.

In addition, Janda said, people who only did as much as share video clips or information from the group’s conference were also censored.
“Sidney Powell, the attorney of General [Michael] Flynn, retweeted that video along with Donald Trump JR, and they were de-platformed from Twitter,” Janda added.
Big Pharma now inciting Democrats to turn on each other?
This medical-industrial complex has also targeted people unaffiliated with conservative figures and institutions, Janda said, referring to the censure experienced by Detroit representative Karen Whitsett, who previously blasted state authorities for their slow response to the pandemic.
Whitsett, according to Janda, was diagnosed with COVID-19 back in March – an infection that was further complicated by Lyme disease.
According to Janda, when her condition took a turn for the worse, Whitsett – a staunch Democrat who, during the course of the pandemic, managed to raise $ 450,000 in four days for those in need in her district – asked if she could be prescribed with the antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine, which at that time, was being touted by President Donald Trump as a potential treatment option for those with COVID-19.
“When Karen Whitsett developed coronavirus, she had underlying medical conditions, Lyme disease and the like. She became very ill and she wanted to have hydroxychloroquine,” Janda said.
Whitsett’s request, however, came at the same time that Michigan governor Gretchen Whitmer imposed an order banning the prescription and dispensation of hydroxychloroquine in the state.
“Now at the time when she needed it, our governor in the state of Michigan, a totalitarian thug, Gretchen Whitmer, she had her Department of Enforcement send letters, saying that if a physician prescribed or if a pharmacist dispensed hydroxychloroquine to a person diagnosed with coronavirus, there are administrative actions that would be put into effect that could discontinue their licenses,” Janda stated in his interview.
According to Janda, it was only when he and a reporter from the Detroit News pointed out that Whitmer, by imposing such an ordinance, was actually practicing medicine without a license, that the governor rescinded her letters and opened up hydroxychloroquine to the state.
“The point is when I became a physician, back in 1984, I put my hand up and took an oath. Part of that oath, the Hippocratic oath, is to do no harm. The harm Gretchen Whitmer inflicted on the people of Michigan, has not even been counted. How many people died because they didn’t have the means to an effective treatment, that being hydroxychloroquine with azithromycin and zinc?” Janda noted.
Whitsett, Janda said, eventually got her hands on hydroxychloroquine and within hours of taking the drug along with azithromycin and zinc, improved to the point where she did not need to go on a ventilator.
Not long after her recovery, Whitsett, in what has since been considered as a bold move from a Democrat, told conservative political commentator and host Laura Ingraham on Fox News’ The Ingraham Angle that if it wasn’t for President Trump’s introduction of hydroxychloroquine and his constant pushing for its approval for off-label use, that she may not have made it through the infection.
“I really want to say that you have to give this [hydroxychloroquine] an opportunity,” Whitsett said – a markedly different stance compared to the statements put forth by most Democrats about the anti-malarial drug.”
“If President Trump had not talked about this it wouldn’t have been something that would be accessible for anyone to be able to get right now,” Whitsett added.
The Detroit representative would then reiterate her message to President Trump in person after the latter invited her to a meeting at the White House.
That was only the start of Whitsett’s troubles, however.
As reported by the Detroit News, Detroit Democrats unanimously passed a resolution censuring Whitsett, alleging that she “broke protocol” by meeting with President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.
According to the resolution passed by the 13th Congressional District Democratic Party organization, Whitsett “misrepresented the needs and priorities” of Democratic leadership to the president and public.
“Karen Whitsett had the audacity to thank the President of the United States for calling attention to hydroxychloroquine with azithromycin and zinc … She publicly thanked him and when she came back from the White House, from Washington, she was censured by the Democratic Party, who are running people against her, so that she is put out of office,” Janda noted.
Another Democrat, New York City Councilman Paul Vallone, who represents northeast Queens, said that hydroxychloroquine saved his life after contracting a near-fatal COVID-19 infection in March.
Vallone, in an interview, noted that he took the drug along with azithromycin and came back from the brink almost immediately.
“I couldn’t breathe, very weak, couldn’t get out of bed. My doctor prescribed it. My pharmacy had it. Took it that day and within two to three days I was able to breathe,” Vallone said in an interview with New York Post, adding that within a week he was back on his feet.
Similar to Whitsett, Vallone says he is grateful to President Trump for his introduction of the drug’s existence to the greater public
“At that time, there was only fear and panic, he offered hope in a possible treatment when there was none. With my sarcoidosis and then my COVID symptoms, It basically saved me. For that my family will always be thankful,” Vallone said.
As of press time, Whitsett, who previously lodged and then retracted a lawsuit against Governor Whitmer and other Detroit Democrats, prevailed against a new party-backed candidate in unofficial voting results last week.
