God, Dr. Immanuel reminds me of Miss Cleo...anybody remember her, that "Shaman From the Carribbean"
in that huge scam from circa 1900?
And she also seems to prove Sherlock Holmes statment that a Doctor gone wrong can be the worst of evildoers.

I hope he gave Attorney General Barr a nice big brotherly hug.

America’s Dumbest Congressman got his positive diagnosis and went to his office to tell his staff… In person.

He’s as selfish as he is stupid.

I thought the exact same thing when I watched one of her (Immanuel's) vids. Not just the accent, but something in the demeanor.

Wasn't she the one that promised to see the future but didn't know the authorities were coming for her?

OK, see my comment yesterday about how this is just the modern version of the "List of Scientists who oppose evolution"

https://www.medpagetoday.com/infecti...9/87797?trw=no

But none of them have practices that would place them on the actual front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic. Some don't currently practice at all.

Two of those appearing at the Monday event are ophthalmologists, one of whom is no longer licensed.
A lot is being made about the quack and Demon semen, but how about those ophthalmologists? They know what it takes to cure COVID for sure!!!!

You wouldn't mock those ophthalmologists if you'd gotten demon semen in your eye.

I seem to recall a big deal being made about Rand Paul's "authority" as a doctor, and he's an ophthalmologist too.

Well kind of. He had to invent his own board to get board certification after all.
