“The letters generally allege misinformation … but they’re not specific. They don’t specifically identify anything that’s false that anyone has been saying. There’s no evidence of any falsehood,” Andy Schlafly, who is representing the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons in the legal case, said on NTD’s “ The Nation Speaks .”
It’s “sort of general allegations,” he added, “and then it’s a demand that the physicians prove that they’re innocent.”
Both the American Board of Internal Medicine and the American Board of Family Medicine have sent the letters, according to the suit , which was filed in federal court in Texas this month.
Another board, the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology, has warned providers against disseminating “misinformation and disinformation about COVID-19 , reproductive health care, contraception, abortion, and other OB GYN practices that may harm the patients we serve or public health.”
The boards did not respond to requests for comment or could not be reached. Retaliation
The moves to revoke certifications are retaliation for speaking out on issues related to COVID-19, including criticism of the COVID-19 vaccines, plaintiffs say.In missives sent in May, the internal medicine board sent threatening letters to doctors “for making public statements that disagree with the approach taken by Dr. Fauci and the Biden Administration to Covid-19,” according to the suit. Dr. Anthony Fauci is the longtime head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and President Joe Biden’s chief medical adviser.The family medicine board distributed similar missives, the suit says.The letters have threatened to revoke the certifications that the boards bestow.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
