Digging into the the Recent Possible Future Changes to AB 2098: Color Me Sceptical/AND MY OWN REVISION WHICH FIXES EVERYTHING!

Let me try to set out where we are today, before the hearing on SB 2098 which bill originally made sanctionable physicians who publically spread covid misinformation. The original bill The bill was dropped on February 14th. It created a new form of misconduct that the medical board could prosecute and that being a physician providing information to the public via social media or any other public forum information which the board thought was false or misleading, i.e., contrary to…

AB 2098, The Cali. Bill Disciplining Physicians for “Covid Misinformation”: Some Context and Predictions

Tomorrow, April 19th is the first hearing on AB 2098 which would subject physicians to disciplinary action for “spreading covid misinformation”, and that misinformation being opinions, facts and even publicizing scientific studies which are inconsistent with the position of the public health officials and infectious disease specialists. Here is the bill if you haven’t seen it. https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billTextClient.xhtml?bill_id=202120220AB2098 This bill comes from the Federation of State Medical Board’s (“FSMB”) position statement in July 2021 that physicians who disagree with the conventional…

Really Good News for Californians Opposed to Mandatory COVID School Vaccination

Really Good News for Californians Opposed to Mandatory COVID School Vaccination

Parents had been contacting me about the effect of all these new California vaccine mandates. I was reluctant to respond for many reasons, not the least of which is that I had heard some rumblings that the usually legislatively effective Senator Pan was having trouble with his bill to add the COVID vaccine to the list of in-person school mandated vaccinations. I knew that all the lobbying groups against mandatory vaccination were hard at work working behind the scenes and…

My Interview on the Paul Thomas, MD CHD Podcast “Against the Wind”

Recently, Paul Thomas contacted me about one of my posts. He wanted to interview me for his show about some of the current vaccine issues and where we should go from here. I think it was a pretty good discussion. (Here is the post which caught his eye: https://rickjaffeesq.com/2022/03/09/some-big-picture-thinking-as-covid-mandates-wind-down-around-the-world/) As most of you know, Paul Thomas is an outspoken Oregon pediatrician who has had his run-ins with the Oregon Medical Board on the vaccine issue. His biggest crime is that…

Some Big Picture Thinking as COVID Mandates Wind Down Around the World

Some Big Picture Thinking as COVID Mandates Wind Down Around the World

We are about to begin the third year of the COVID pandemic. Restrictions are rapidly winding down throughout the country (and the world). It is the hope and expectation that we are entering the endemic stage of the disease and normalcy will return. Therefore, it is a good time to reflect on things in a big picture way and think about lessons learned from the last two years. The Upside of COVID Polarization America is a big country that is…

Stoller Petition for Review filed with the Cali. Supreme Court

Stoller Petition for Review filed with the Cali. Supreme Court

Today I filed the the petition for review in Ken Stoller’s medical board case. It’s a long shot (at best) that the case will be accepted for the highly discretionary review by the court. It’s not like an appeal to an appellate court which has to take a case. It is more like (or exactly like) a certiorari petition in the US supreme court. Needless to say, we think there are some important issues which the people of California deserve…

Stoller Writ of Mandate (to the Court of Appeals) Denied; Next Step, the Cali. Supreme Court

Stoller Writ of Mandate (to the Court of Appeals) Denied; Next Step, the Cali. Supreme Court

stollerwritofmandaterajLast Friday, the Sacramento appellate court denied Ken Stoller’s writ of mandate seeking to overturn the Sacramento superior court’s denial of our writ of administrative mandate. As is often the case in what are called “extraordinary writs,” the appellate court didn’t have much to say on the merits, and that’s an understatement. Here is the entirety of the order: “The petition for writ of mandate is denied.” There is no automatic right to appeal a denial of an extraordinary writ…

First YouTube Post on SB 871 and vaccine mandates is up

Here is the link. https://youtu.be/t0dfWuGJz4Q I had some technical problems and I haven’t quite figured out the YouTube editing deal. So pardon the glitches.

First Live Stream YouTube Vlog, Tomorrow, 1/28 at 9 AM PST on Cali. SB 871

As promised/threatened, I’m starting a YouTube channel on health law. I was going to start off with the CDC’s recent findings supporting natural immunity, but in light of Senator Pan’s dropping his COVID mandate bill, SB 871, I thought I’d start with that. I will take up the natural immunity in the next one, suggesting that the courts need to revisit the mandate issue in light of these findings, and the probably next COVID variant, which is Omnicon B2. I…
