So as you surely know, there has been quite a contentious “debate” over the better part of the last two years as to the use of the drug Ivermectin in combating the evil coronavirus. OK, not really a “debate” so much as a condemnation and ridiculing of anyone who suggested Ivermectin might actually be of some help against COVID (can you say Joe Rogan?). It’s been made clear to us, in NO UNCERTAIN TERMS, that Ivermectin is nothing more than “horse goo” or “horse paste” or at best a “veterinary medicine” which actually has no effect on the ‘rona whatsoever. This message has been delivered by everyone from Tiny Tony on down to our friends at CNN and all the way down to despicable human beings like Jimmy Kimmel who joked about people taking “horse goo” being left to die outside of hospitals. And his audience laughed and laughed. Sweet.
Notwithstanding the protestations of those who pointed out that the discoverers of Ivermectin were awarded the Nobel Prize in 2015 for its use in HUMAN MEDICINE, or that it’s been used in humans for some 35 years, or that it’s listed by the World Health Organization as an “Essential Medicine” or that it has been used literally BILLIONS of times in humans, or that there’s a paper published on the website of the U.S. National Institutes of Health entitled “Ivermectin, ‘Wonder Drug’ from Japan: the human use perspective” which states in part “There are few drugs that can seriously lay claim to the title of ‘Wonder drug’, penicillin and aspirin being two that have perhaps had greatest beneficial impact on the health and wellbeing of Mankind. But ivermectin can also be considered alongside those worthy contenders, based on its versatility, safety and the beneficial impact that it has had, and continues to have, worldwide…” our media talking heads made sure you “KNEW” it was used in animals to combat parasites. It was a waste of time and perhaps even dangerous; besides we had Remdesivir, a new antiviral drug that actually did “work” and coincidentally cost a crap-ton of money. While Ivermectin is essentially free, Remdesivir costs about $500 per dose or about $3,000 per treatment cycle (Even though “Bloomberg reported that the cost to manufacture remdesivir is $9 per treatment, but Gilead said it will cost over $3,000 for a six-vial treatment. Gilead spent over $5-million in lobbying Congress in 2019.”) Interestingly, “The most common adverse effects in people treated with remdesivir were RESPIRATORY FAILURE and blood biomarkers of organ impairment…” so there’s that. Say, doesn’t COVID cause respiratory failure? But you’re too dumb to understand the complicated intricacies of modern medicine and things like payoffs and graft, so shut up and just make fun of Joe Rogan!
Well it turns out, as with pretty much EVERYTHING else we’ve been told about this pandemic, the “experts” appear to have been wrong AGAIN. In a study published in March of 2022 in the International Journal of Infectious Diseases entitled “Treatment with Ivermectin Is Associated with Decreased Mortality in COVID-19 Patients: Analysis of a National Federated Database” we find out that, “Ivermectin use was associated with DECREASED MORTALITY in patients with COVID-19 compared to remdesivir.” And that decrease was to the tune of 70%!
In a second paper published in January of 2022, again published on the U.S. National Institutes of Health website, entitled “Ivermectin Prophylaxis Used for COVID-19: A Citywide, Prospective, Observational Study of 223,128 Subjects Using Propensity Score Matching” we see that Ivermectin taken for two consecutive days every 15 days (a very small dose) as a prophylactic (taking it before you get sick) showed a 44% REDUCTION IN INFECTIONS, and a 68% REDUCTION IN MORTALITY.
I’m just curious how you explain this. There is, even as we speak, a page on the FDA’s website entitled “Why You Should Not Use Ivermectin to Treat or Prevent COVID-19” warning people off the use of Ivermectin, yet the actual SCIENCE AND DATA seems to tell a different story.
So once again, our “expert” overlords and their sycophantic cronies in the mainstream media would appear to have been wrong. Wondering how many lives might have been saved if the government didn’t lie to us about Ivermectin and Remdesivir and allowed doctors to prescribe a drug they know to be safe and effective for many things. If the study cited above is any indication, we may have saved hundreds of thousands of lives by simply giving people a little Ivermectin every two weeks. Why push a very expensive drug, that really showed NO VALUE at all in treating COVID? If you’re interested in learning more about the fraud of Remdesivir, you can read “The Strange Story Of Remdesivir, A Covid Drug That Doesn’t Work” or “The ‘very, very bad look' of remdesivir, the first FDA-approved COVID-19 drug”.
In any event, criminal incompetence, incomprehensible stupidity, outright lying for some nefarious purpose; whatever you call it, it would appear that my charge that our overlords are ALL idiots or liars (or both) holds true once again. As this thing winds down, we CANNOT forget what they have done and we MUST hold them responsible. Although I’m not holding my breath…
