Two years into the corruption, lies, and unscientific incompetence of the CDC, how is it that Florida is the only state where the health department is actively bucking the CDC?Rather than serve as a state conduit for the CDC\u2019s relentless misinformation promoting clot shots, quarantine, and masking, the Florida Department of Health is now a positive force for science and health. Under Dr. Joseph Ladapo, Gov. DeSantis\u2019 newly confirmed surgeon general, the health department is actively issuing guidance encouraging doctors to treat patients early with what they find to work rather than relying on the same voodoo that has failed so many people for two years. Last Thursday, DeSantis and Ladapo posted a video announcing several new changes to their guidance. The guidance includes the following five changes: Pushing Back Against Corporate Masking for Employees Advising Health Care Practitioners and Facilities to Reevaluate Status Quo Protocols in Favor of Scientifically Based Treatment Options to Benefit Patients Updating Daycare Guidance to Limit Child Isolation to 5 Days Updating the School Rule to Limit Student Isolation to 5 Days Reducing Isolation for Floridians with COVID to 5 Days Even in other red states where the governors claim to oppose the mandates, the departments of health continue to promote masks, continue to pressure people to get boosters, and continue to support quarantine. DeSantis has already banned school mask mandates, but he noted in several speeches in recent weeks how some big businesses continue to forcibly mask their workers, creating a quasi two-tiered serfdom system. Rather than simply announcing that we no longer \u201cneed\u201d masks, DeSantis and Ladapo went after the entire premise of masking.\u201cBusinesses are advised to no longer require facial coverings for employees, as there is no proven significant clinical benefit for facial coverings among the general population,\u201d states the guidance. To this day, deep red state departments of health continue to peddle discredited misinformation from the CDC that masks work against this virus. The twitter banner of the Alabama Department of Health still has a goofy mask montage promoting them with more passion than the Biden administration.

Medical freedom and COVID fascism are the issues of our lifetime, and these governors have ensured that there is not one iota of difference between the parties. Any governor who claims to oppose the CDC and Fauci but has his or her department of health disseminating this dangerous misinformation about efficacy and safety of the jabs or masks is a complete fraud. Then there is early treatment. We already know that masks do not work and the vaccines waned last year and don\u2019t work at all for Omicron. So, what does work? \u201cIf you take a look at Fauci, what he puts out, what he says you can do, he\u2019s been very negative on a lot of treatments that have actually shown positive results,\u201d declared the Flroida governor in the \u201cBuck the CDC\u201d video. \u201cAnd so what Dr. Ladapo has done is made sure that practitioners understand that they have the flexibility, and they can use their judgment, to use off-label products in order to treat Covid-19.\u201dTo that end, the Florida Department of Health sent out a provider alert to doctors, recommending they \u201cexercise their individual clinical judgment and expertise based on their patients\u2019 needs and preferences.\u201d Why it has taken this long across the board is mind-boggling, but Ladapo did this on his first day after being confirmed to his position. Where are the other governors?The guidance added this important line in bold type:\u201cIf you are a health care practitioner who is aware of a hospital that is preventing licensed health care providers from using evidence-based care and exercising clinical judgment in treating patients, please report those instances to the Agency for Health Care Administration.\u201dSo rather than putting doctors on notice to lose their licenses for saving lives, this guidance actually encourages doctors to contact the department if hospitals are preventing them from using standard clinical judgement in treating patients. Too many GOP governors straddle the fence and proclaim their opposition to Fauci\u2019s policies, but then their departments of health continue to put out misinformation while failing to discuss actual early treatment. Even last week, after so much information came out about vaccine injury, the Tennessee Department of Health recommended shots even for children as young as five, despite the lack of efficacy for Omicron.

The CDC recommends everyone 5 years and older get vaccinated to protect them from serious illness and hospitalization due to COVID.pic.twitter.com/v4Ldp3ky6x \u2014 TN Dept. of Health (@TN Dept. of Health) 1645567208 Georgia is still going strong promoting these dangerous and needless shots on children.

Yet all these same governors who remain silent in the face of this humanitarian crisis are raucously shouting about Ukraine, and issue in which, as governors, they have zero impact. With red states like these, who needs blue states?
