Dr. Marty Makary, appeared for an interview on “The Vince Coglianese Show” Tuesday to talk about immunity from the coronavirus. As a professor at Johns Hopkins Medical school, Makary said the total disregard for natural immunity is “one of the biggest failures of our current medical leadership.”

Many representatives in the House, along with three senators, have refused the vaccine, because they’re immune since they’ve already been infected. They faced criticism over their decision. Makary stood up for these lawmakers, saying they’re being “reasonable.”

“Natural immunity works,” he said. Not only does it work, but the doctor also added “It’s probably lifelong immunity.” A study in Denmark showed that 6/10ths of 1% got reinfected after already having the virus.

“Please, ignore the CDC guidance,” Makary said. “Live a normal life, unless you are unvaccinated and did not have the infection, in which case you need to be careful.” After all, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention has become a “slow, reactionary, political” organization.

TN Republican introduces legislation to fight opioid shipments into U.S.

Tennessee Republican Representative Diana Harshbarger is attempting to fight the opioid crisis and epidemic through new legislation. Introduced Friday, Harshbarger told the Daily Caller:

The Daily Caller first obtained a copy of the legislation, which addresses what Harshbarger calls a “loophole.” The legislation amends the Controlled Substances Act to specifically require registrants to investigate reports of suspicious orders of controlled substances and halt them if necessary. Under the version of the act currently in force, drug manufacturers and distributors are only required to report suspicious orders of opioids and other controlled substances to the DEA.

“Breaking the opioid epidemic’s stranglehold on our nation is one of my foremost priorities. In an effort to do so, my colleagues and I have identified a loophole that allows distributors to continue order fulfillment, even under suspicious circumstances.”

“My bill closes that loophole with the requirements and guardrails needed to ensure these addictive and potentially dangerous drugs do not fall into the wrong hands while the DEA investigates. The future of our nation depends on us solving the addiction crisis, and this is a step towards that outcome” Harshbarger continued.

The Daily Caller reports:

According to a congressional report released in September, the opioid crisis cost the U.S. $1.5 trillion during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The CDC says 93,331 people died from overdoses in the U.S. in 2020, the highest in 50 years. Opioid-related deaths made up nearly three-quarters of the total.

Pharmaceutical companies have been blamed for contributing to the opioid epidemic. The Department of Justice is currently suing the pharmaceutical company AmerisourceBergen over allegations the company failed to report suspicious orders of opioids to federal law enforcement.
