Peterson and Grove opened the show by emphasizing the importance of standing up for one's rights. "We need to start learning how to stand up, and Jeff and I are trying to present you ways to stand up that you guys [are going to] really enjoy," Grove said.
Peterson then welcomed Ardis and noted how We The People had no idea about their rights as patients. The doctor acknowledged this fact, mentioning that thousands of people have been reaching out to him on a weekly basis. "Every week, they're pleading with us that he have a loved one in the ICU [intensive care unit] who is dying. [They] want help getting those people on different protocols and hospitals, but the doctors won't listen," Ardis said.
Ardis continued that hospital administrators were "not being helpful" with their insistence on using drug treatments that cause more harm than good. He revealed that these same hospitals used an "ICU cocktail" made up of three drugs – the antiviral remdesivir, the anti-inflammatory dexamethasone and the antibiotic vancomycin.
The doctor remarked that remdesivir caused acute kidney failure in 35 percent of patients who used the drug within five to ten days. When combined with dexamethasone and vancomycin, it caused acute kidney failure in up to 45 percent of patients in a span of five days. Ardis added that research on remdesivir only attested to the drug's negative effects on the renal system.
Even though the use of the three-drug cocktail has caused the kidneys to shut down, Ardis said hospitals have been adamant on following this protocol. Incidentally, Ardis said in early August 2021 that remdesivir was still approved by U.S. health authorities despite having a high death rate. "[Dr. Anthony Fauci] knew … for two years before he mandated this drug that it was deadly," he said that time. (Related: Did Fauci knowingly fast-track approval of drug with deadly COVID-like side effects?)
Peterson then clarified: "This acute kidney failure basically makes [COVID-19 patients] fill up with water … and they think it's pneumonia, but it's really the poison that's killing their kidney – making the body fill up with water in layman's terms?"
Ardis replied in the affirmative, saying that acute kidney failure causes the bodies of COVID-19 patients to retain water. He explained, "When you cause acute kidney failure [in patients] with drugs that they're using in ICUs … while they have an intravenous drip that is putting water into their body – their abdomen, heart and lungs eventually fill up with water."
The doctor continued the resulting pulmonary edema – water accumulating in the lungs – is then wrongly diagnosed as COVID pneumonia. "[Hospitals] are misdiagnosing that as COVID pneumonia that you continue to hear – [when] it's actually pulmonary edema," Ardis said.
Peterson also played an earlier video with him, Grove and Ardis talking about a lawsuit filed by lawyer Thomas Renz. Renz's lawsuit alleged that the federal government covered up 45,000 deaths caused by the COVID-19 vaccine within a three-day period. Out of the government's 11 different reporting systems for vaccine injuries, Ardis said "one of them alone has 45,000 [deaths] and they have not released the total." (Related: Thomas Renz discusses how hospitals’ covid protocols are killing patients who aren’t infected – Brighteon.TV.)
Given the 45,000 vaccine deaths from one reporting system being covered up, the doctor described moves to vaccinate children for COVID-19 as disgusting. He said: "Now, they [want to] push it on every child, and they passed a law that by September  … they'll [be] able to vaccinate every five-year-old in America before they go to school."
