Welcome to the Substack by Dr. Peter A. McCullough with best-selling author John Leake. This is our inaugural issue, and we want to lay out the rationale for our stack and why we are launching at this time. Dr. McCullough has developed a following of many millions around the world and is widely known as a doctor of medical authority who has been a consistent leader in pandemic response. He has given hundreds of interviews and commentaries with viewpoints being represented as his own and with considerable citation of the scientific evidence. John Leake is an established nonfiction true-crime investigator and author. Our first book together is “Courage to Face COVID-19: Preventing Hospitalization and Death while Battling the Biopharmaceutical Complex.” Our stack will be variably written by one or both authors depending on the context and topic and the frequency will be driven by the contemporary nature of the topic. Our scope will be biomedical, ethical, and policy topics that are influencing our lives now and shaping the futures of our children. At the top of our list are threats to civil liberties that are palpable today that are working to destabilize liberal democracies around the world. We are starting this stack now on the heels of Twitter deleting 512K followers from Dr. McCullough’s account then suspending him. While tech and legal teams work with Twitter, this development and so many more acts of bold medical censorship serve as warning bells calling us to seek independent sources of media and to get closer to original experts who can deliver vital analysis and insight that can help us all weather the storm. In the near future we will lay out more on how to navigate social media, books, and access to critical medical information.

About John Leake: Mr. Leake studied history and philosophy with Sir Roger Scruton at Boston University. He then went to Vienna, Austria on a graduate school scholarship and ended up living in the city for over a decade, working as a freelance writer and translator. His first book, Entering Hades: The Double Life of a Serial Killer (Sarah Crichton Books, FSG) was a New York Times Sunday Book Review “Editors’ Choice,” a Men’s Vogue “Best Book of 2007,” and the inspiration of The Infernal Comedy, starring John Malkovich. His second book, Cold a Long Time: An Alpine Mystery, was winner of the 2012 Independent Publisher Award. The German translation, Eiskalter Tod, published by the Residenz Verlag was a bestseller in Austria. His investigative work for the Jack Unterweger, Duncan MacPherson, and Angelika Foeger stories has been the subject of numerous television documentaries produced by A&E Biography, Discovery, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s “Fifth Estate,” and the Austrian Broadcasting Corporation’s “Am Schauplatz Gericht. In March 2020, when SARS-CoV-2 started to spread in the United States, he perceived that the pandemic response was illogical at best, and possibly criminal. He found it especially suspicious how quickly public health officials dismissed repurposed medications such as hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin. In November of 2020, he watched a video of Dr. Peter McCullough’s U.S. Senate testimony about early treatment. He sensed from this performance that Dr. McCullough was likely to lead the way in developing a more rational, honest, and humane response to the crisis and their collaboration was born.

Dr. McCullough: You need to provide the same comments and links that you would have afforded your over 500K subscribers. That way others can tweet on your behalf to reach the same audience.
We also need to continue to include Elon Musk in our tweets until he acknowledges the censorship on this subject. I hope Elon can get your Twitter restored ASAP. It was no coincidence this happened at same time Musk was on a path to take over Twitter, and that the election is coming up.
And everyone should encourage politicians like Sen. Johnson, Rand Paul and Gov. DeSantis to speak with Musk about undoing this Censorship at Twitter.
