Dr. McCullough is an internist, cardiologist, epidemiologist managing the cardiovascular complications of both the viral infection and the injuries developing after the COVID-19 vaccine in Dallas TX, USA.  Since the outset of the pandemic, Dr. McCullough has been a leader in the medical response to the COVID-19 disaster and has published “Pathophysiological Basis and Rationale for Early Outpatient Treatment of SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) Infection” the first synthesis of sequenced multidrug treatment of ambulatory patients infected with SARS-CoV-2 in the American Journal of Medicine and subsequently updated in Reviews in Cardiovascular Medicine.  
He has dozens of peer-reviewed publications on the infection and has commented extensively on the medical response to the COVID-19 crisis in TheHill, America Out Loud, and on FOX NEWS Channel.  On November 19, 2020, Dr. McCullough testified in the US Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, in 2021-2022 the Texas Senate Committee on Health and Human Services, Colorado General Assembly, New Hampshire Senate, Pennsylvania Senate, and South Carolina Senate concerning many aspects of the pandemic response.  
On January 24, 2022, Dr. McCullough co-moderated and testified in the US Senate Panel “COVID-19:  A Second Opinion” chaired by Senator Ron Johnson.  Dr. McCullough has reviewed thousands of reports, participated in scientific congresses, group discussions, press releases, and has been considered among the world's experts on COVID-19.  His book written with best-selling true-crime author John Leake is “Courage to Face COVID-19:  Preventing Hospitalization and Death while Battling the Biopharmaceutical Complex.”

Sir Richard Thompson, Past President of the Royal College of Physicians and former personal physician to her majesty The Queen said “Dr Aseem Malhotra is changing the face of medicine and his revolutionary book the Pioppi Diet should be read by everyone”
The Mayor of Manchester Andy Burnham said “ He’s really making people think differently about what they eat and how they live their life. Through his work he’s going to change many thousands of lives, millions of lives for the better”

Senator Ralph Babet

Senator Babet was born on the island of Rodrigues in the Indian Ocean, west of Madagascar and part of Mauritius. Along with his parents and his younger brother, Senator
Babet emigrated to Australia in the early 1990s. 
Only able to speak French when he arrived, Senator Babet found it challenging to learn a new language while trying to succeed at school and make friends. It was here that he learned the value of hard work and persistence, ultimately graduating from university and going on to create a successful real estate business with his younger brother.
Senator Babet has become a proud Australian citizen, a pride which he carries into his first term in the 47 th parliament of Australia. 
In late 2021, Senator Babet nominated for Australian Parliament, winning the number one senate position for the state of Victoria with the United Australia Party. He believes in the values of the party, which adhere strongly to pride in our nation, restoring Australia’s once great manufacturing sector, and the reduction of government interference in the lives of ordinary Australians and of the corporations and enterprises that employ them.
The Senator also believes that Australians should be free to act and think for themselves while abiding by common law and human decency.
