Doctor’s Medical License Suspended Over Accusations of Spreading COVID Misinformation/ Newsweek

Interestingly, Newsweek put a video of Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla, saying a small number of naysaying professionals are criminals, responsible for the deaths of millions, at the top of this article.  They did not say Bourla’s vaccine is injuring and killing people, nor did they say Bourla himself admits it no longer works. Nor did Newsweek say that Pfizer has paid more $ in criminal and civil fines than any other pharmaceutical company in history.

Doctor’s Medical License Suspended Over Accusations of Spreading COVID Misinformation

The Maine Board of Licensure in Medicine also decided to oversee a deeper investigation into Meryl Nass, an internist from Ellsworth.

Nass has been outspoken in recent years with her criticism of the U.S. response to the COVID-19 pandemic. She describes herself in her Twitter bio as “Physician, writer, investigator. First person to investigate an epidemic and prove it was not a natural event. I untangle disinformation. Join me in resisting.”

She is active with Children’s Health Defense, a group that questions vaccines, vaccine mandates and “misinformation.” In a November letter published on the group’s site, Nass objected to the Maine Board of Licensure and Medicine’s threats of disciplinary action against physicians who spread vaccine misinformation and disinformation.

She also argued against relying on vaccines in the letter, and accused the government of quelling the use of hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin, neither of which have been approved by government agencies for the treatment of COVID-19 in humans.

“Ivermectin is approved for human use to treat infections caused by some parasitic worms and head lice and skin conditions like rosacea,” the Food and Drug Administration wrote on its website. “Currently available data do not show ivermectin is effective against COVID-19.”

But she stated that both drugs “were approved, adequate and available — and cheap. Thus they had to be suppressed.”

She also runs a blog titled “Anthrax Vaccine.”

Unless Nass agrees to transition to inactive status, her license will be suspended for 30 days, Maine Public reported. She is also required to undergo a psychological examination per the board’s request.

Doctor Suspended for COVID Misinformation

A Maine medical board voted Tuesday to suspend the license of a doctor after receiving complaints that she had been spreading misinformation about COVID-19.

Nass did not return a phone call seeking comment on Wednesday.

The medical board has received at least two complaints that Nass was spreading misinformation about the virus. Nass has practiced medicine for decades and in recent years has been increasingly critical about the safety and effectiveness of vaccines, including ones for COVID-19.

Nass wrote in a blog post recently that her lawyer predicted she would lose her licenses during the medical board’s meeting, Maine Public reported.

She has also blogged that COVID-19 vaccines are associated with reproductive harm. No recognized medical body has substantiated that claim, which is oft-repeated in anti-vaccine circles. Nass has also described the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as a “criminal agency.”

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Even The Hill ran a similar piece.

Once, long ago, Newsweek knew who the spreaders of misinformation were .. https://www.newsweek.com/2014/11/21/medical-science-has-data-problem-284066.html "The revelation of hidden data bolstered a growing movement against what's referred to within the research community as "publication bias," in which scientists squirrel away mostly negative or inconclusive findings and broadcast only their positive ones. Concealing trial data—for which patients accept the risks of untested treatments for the greater good—is routine. As many as half of all clinical trials are never published, PLOS Medicine reported last year." You are loved across the world, Dr Nass, for your unwavering integrity and dedication to untangling misinformation. . .

Is there a place where people (like me) can lodge a complaint? Since when is it illegal to have an opinion? Since when does a medical license get suspended because someone does not like your belief system, whatever it is?

Sorry this is happening to you Meryl. Thank you for being so fearless and committed to getting the truth out.

If they take away the licenses of all the health care providers who challenge the covid narrative, how do you think anyone can find healthcare they can trust? My naturopath here in Maine is even promoting the vaccines over natural immunity! My chiropractor got the jab because the majority of her patients said they wouldn’t come back until she did. Is self care the only reasonable option left?

I can see where this is heading if this tactic is allowed unchallenged.

“Historically, when legal means of punishing a political activist had been exhausted, Russian authorities have turned to psychiatry as an alternative method of political repression.”

“I was told by psychiatrists, ‘You just need to admit that you’re wrong, and everybody will stop bothering you,’ It’s as easy as that,”

Let's hope that International Criminal Court (The Hague) case number: OTP‐CR‐473/21 bring truth and people like Nass become heroes.
Love what you are doing, Nass. Stay strong. A lot of people with you.

To be Honest, I think that the Maine Board of Licensure in Medicine really stepped in it this time. They clearly poked the wrong bear with their shiny brand new (misinformation) stick.
__

As for Janet Mills, she is out of a job by this time next year. Also, her recent appointments to the board will be taking the heat for being fully discredited and their actions as worthless political shills.
__

As for Frederick Googans one of the newest appointments No Doubt he will be stepping down from his position at Borden Cottage: which provides ultra high dollar drug rehab to the Stars, Politicians and movie industry.

This is so unfair and unAmerican. You have first amendment rights and should try to assert them in court and appeal all the way to the SCOTUS if necessary. I am happy to donate to a legal fund to sue your state medical board. Please consider setting one up!

The Hill article is especially awful. The Hill's Rising sometimes shows glimmers of life and thought. This person is not qualified to declare "insufficient evidence" for hcq & ivm. And he's not qualified to insinuate that you're mentally ill. Dr Nass, can you reach Kim Iversen? She might want to give this a more honest look ..(?)
