Nothing to see here folks, move along, and don’t forget to hate Putin!
Dr. Peter McCullough is a practicing internist and cardiologist in Dallas, Texas. Dr. Jessica Rose holds degrees in applied mathematics, immunology, computational biology, molecular biology and biochemistry. (Check out her Substack.) Both are leading figures in the popular resistance movement pushing back against bad COVID policies. Below is a rough transcript of our interview.
Kevin Barrett: Welcome to Truth Jihad Radio. I’m Kevin Barrett talking with the folks who have the most to say from way outside the box of mainstream idiocy. And today I’ve got two of my heroes I’ve been following for quite some time, Dr. Peter McCullough and Dr. Jessica Rose. I finally got them on the show. They’re both people with a very strong medical credentials who’ve questioned the COVID party line and gotten some pushback for their pains. Dr. Peter McCullough is a cardiologist with a strong public health background, a master’s in public health from the University of Michigan. Jessica is a Canadian researcher who’s got a bachelor’s in applied math, a master’s in immunology, a PhD in computational biology, and on and on and on, even more than that. But we’ll just get going here. So, hey, welcome. Peter and Jessica. How are you?
Jessica Rose: Great. Good, thanks.
Kevin Barrett: Well, it’s an honor to have you. We’ll start with Peter, because although both guests are having some Internet issues. Peter’s are worse. So, Peter, we’re going to start here first. Maybe you could quickly introduce yourself and let us know how you ended up being somebody who’s being both cheered and smeared for saying sensible things about COVID and the experimental injections.
Peter McCullough: I’m a practicing internist and cardiologist in Dallas, Texas. Academic practice. I spend about half my time seeing patients like yesterday and half my time in academic mode. As an author and former editor and contributor, I’m a frequent news commentator now. Never thought I would be in the limelight, but I was very much prepared for it in terms of my training and background in analyzing data, both as a clinical trialist and an epidemiologist. I have been cheered, there’s no doubt about it. I’ve testified in the US Senate and been well received across multiple news platforms. I’ve only been jeered, I think—in fact, I know—by people with no credentials and no credibility. And I think that jeers are about 1% and I think the cheers are 99%. But if you can find somebody who’s credible, who’s ever said a discrediting statement, I’d be happy to see it.
Kevin Barrett: Well, here’s here’s a kind of humorous discrediting statement. According to Wikipedia, you’re spreading misinformation about COVID because you are not sure that people under 30 should be getting the experimental injections. Now, I don’t quite understand that.
Peter McCullough: But let me just say, Wikipedia has contributors who are anonymous. The most frequent contributor to my Wikipedia page is not me. I should actually be writing my own Wikipedia page. In fact, Wikipedia has locked me out. It’s someone in Illinois named the Altman, so it’s an anonymous, uncredentialed person who’s putting incorrect information on my Wikipedia page. So Wikipedia, in my view, since it’s not a biographical or autobiographical page that’s credentialed or allows the individual to actually put correct information, Wikipedia should be removed from the Internet and clearly not viewed by anybody who’s interested in the truth.
Kevin Barrett: I agree completely. I had a five year battle with Wikipedia myself and it was maddening. They had libelous information up for five years that couldn’t be taken down, sourced to an anonymous obscure blog lying about me. So yeah, it’s completely insane. And the idea that questioning whether people under 30 should be getting these COVID injections (is bad) is also completely insane, isn’t it? Where do they come up with it?
Peter McCullough: You know, I’m a doctor, so I decide not Wikipedia. I decide. I have the medical authority to decide and help patients judge the risks and the benefits. The risks of the vaccines in people under 30 far outweigh any benefits that could be had, even from the very beginning against the wildtype strain which the vaccines were designed to block. Now, with the Omicron strain across the age spectrum, the risks which are still there outweigh any theoretical benefits. And again, I’m the doctor. I have the authority to decide and make that judgment, not anonymous Wikipedia people.
