Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Simone Gold, MD, JD, founder of the notorious pro-hydroxychloroquine, anti-vaccine group America's Frontline Doctors, was arrested ...

The day before she entered the Capitol with the throngs of insurrectionists, Dr. Simone Gold gave a speech in which she urged people not to get the coronavirus vaccine. "You must not comply if you do not want to take an experimental biological agent deceptively named a vaccine; you must not allow yourself to be coerced," Gold shouted at a rally held outside the White House.

'Willful ignorance': doctor who joined Capitol attack condemned for Covid falsehoods | The Guardian - Jan. 22, 2021 |

A key conservative doctors' group pushing misinformation about Covid-19 vaccines faces growing fire from medical experts about its woeful scientific grounding, while its leader, Dr Simone Gold, was charged early this week for taking part in the 6 January attack on the Capitol.

The development comes as the US faces warnings its pandemic death toll could hit 500,000 next month, in part because conspiracy theories and baseless skepticism - especially from rightwing groups - have hampered efforts to tackle it.

Gold, who founded America's Frontline Doctors last spring with help from the Tea Party Patriots organization, was arrested on Monday in Beverly Hills, where she lives, and faces charges of entering a restricted building, violent entry and disorderly conduct.

Prior to her arrest, a headshot of Gold holding a bullhorn that she used to give a talk inside the Capitol appeared on an FBI flyer headlined "Seeking Information" about suspects in the Capitol attack. The group's communications director, John Strand, who writes for the conservative Epoch Times and was with Gold in the Capitol, was also arrested in Beverly Hills and faces similar charges.

Doctor, Lawyer, Insurrectionist: The Radicalization of Simone Gold | Mother Jones - May 6, 2021 |

When rioters broke into the US Capitol on January 6, chants of "Fuck the police!" "USA!" or "Treason!" echoed in the marble halls. When Dr. Simone Gold got inside the rotunda, she stepped over a velvet rope and announced to anyone who would listen, "I am a Stanford-educated attorney!"

Thus she distinguished herself among the motley crew of Proud Boys, MAGA types, and the QAnon shaman who paraded through the Capitol to overturn the 2020 presidential election, an event that left five people dead.

Not only is Gold a Stanford-educated lawyer, she's also a board-certified emergency room physician. Neither qualification prevented the FBI from coming to her Beverly Hills house on January 18 and arresting her. Nor did it make a federal grand jury think twice in early February before indicting her on five criminal counts, including entering a restricted building and obstructing an official proceeding.
