Antitrust 101: How to Build Medical Monopolies by Discrediting U.S. Physicians

Recently, there have been a rash of initiatives by unaccountable non-profit physician credentialing organizations (Federation of State Medical Boards, the American Boards of  Internal Medicine, Family Medicine and Pediatrics), and the American Medical Association to come to the public's rescue by de-credentialing U.S. physicians they accuse of spreading misinformation during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Physicians have seen this medical monopoly-building playbook before.

The video below reviews the antitrust, monopoly-making activities of the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM). The discrediting of certain U.S. physicians as "cheaters" and disseminators of "misinformation" serve as a smokescreen to their monopoly-building activities. As physicians worked tirelessly to care for patients during the COVID-19 pandemic, the ABIM used U.S. physicians' testing fees to redistribute physician testing fees for their "social justice" initiatives, most significant of which was lobbing Congress so their separate Maintenance of Certification (MOC) continuous testing produt would be a never-ending source of revenue and data metrics used by the Medical Industrial Complex. Sadly, this mandate on younger, more vulnerable ABMS-board certified US physicians has harmed hundreds of physicians and tens of thousands of patients as physicians burn out and leave the profession.

For all patients who wonder why health care prices are so high and access to a board-certified physician has become so difficult, look no further than the organizations above.

This is effective. Keep it coming. Patients needs to understand what is happening to them via monopolies and conflicted organizations like the ABIM/ABMS.
Physicians need to stand up and fight. Patients need fight standing shoulder to shoulder with their doctors.

When will the ABNS/ABIM suppression of critical knowledge end? When will the suppression of necessary scientific debate end? When will the intimidation and censoring of physicians end?

The ABIM is now under the critical scrutiny of millions of readers both domestic and worldwide.

The informative "shout" that is heard around the world.

ABIM: "There shall be no public accountability on our decision to de-certify Dr. McCullough"
According to the ABIM, there is no need for a public forum between experts to determine what constitutes misinformation. That determination is made by the ABIM and its hand-selected doctors.

Have these credible legal complaints been put in front of the Department of Justice yet?????
Conspiracy and collusion of these "unregulated monopolies" with the "healthcare industry" is overwhelming.

It all points to the ABMS/ABIM and their financial partners forming one of the most powerful protection rackets in US history.
