The coronavirus pandemic has highlighted just how politicized medicine has become in the U.S. and around the world. From the way that the media stifled all discussions of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) despite many physicians saving patients with it and doctors lost their jobs for discussing their successes with it, to the nonsensical insistence on vaccines and boosters to enter public spaces despite their inability to stop the spread of the disease, it is clear that the public’s best interest is being outweighed by the need for money and power.
That also explains what is happening with Ivermectin, which in some ways has become the new HCQ – although it is actually a decades-old antiparasitic drug that is on the World Health Organization’s list of essential drugs.
You won’t hear public health officials and the mainstream media talking about it, but this heartworm medication has been shown to inhibit the replication of SARS-CoV-2 in vitro. The Frontline COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC) has been calling for Ivermectin to be widely adopted for the prevention and treatment of every phase of COVID-19.
It is precisely its ability to help throughout all stages of the disease that makes Ivermectin so useful in treating COVID-19. It works well in both the initial viral phase of the illness, when patients generally require antivirals, as well as the inflammatory stage that occurs once the viral load starts to drop off and anti-inflammatories are needed.
A medical doctor in India who authored a white paper on Ivermectin, Dr. Surya Kant, found the drug to reduce the replication of the SARS-CoV-2 virus by several thousand times. Several Indian provinces have been using it as a prophylactic as well as a treatment for the virus since the summer of 2020.
The drug is also recommended by Dr. Tess Lawrie, a medical doctor and PhD researcher who identifies several studies that support her recommendation. Here is a brief rundown:
- A scientific review published in January 2021 by Dr. Andrew Hill of the University of Liverpool that was funded by the World Health Organization and UNITAID found the drug reduced deaths due to COVID-19 by 75 percent and raised viral clearance. This finding was supported by a review of six randomized controlled trials of more than 1200 patients.
- A meta-analysis published in February 2021 that found a 68 percent reduction in deaths based on analysis of 13 studies. Dr. Lawrie believes that this is actually an underestimation of the benefits of the drug because it includes a study in which the control arm was given HCQ. Because we know that HCQ can also have a positive impact on the outcomes of COVID-19 patients, it should not be surprising that this study did not find Ivermectin to be much better than the control treatment because the control was HCQ.
- An updated analysis published by Dr. Lawrie in March 2021 showed a 62 percent reduction in deaths after including two new randomized controlled trials that contained data on mortality. However, after removing four studies that had a high risk of bias in a subsequent sensitivity analysis, a 72 percent reduction in deaths was noted.
Health authorities know Ivermectin helps but won’t endorse it
The president of the FLCCC, Dr. Pierre Kory, a former Professor of Medicine with the Aurora St. Luke’s Medical Center in Wisconsin, has testified on Ivermectin’s benefits before several COVID-19 panels, including the National Institutes of Health COVID Treatment Guidelines Panel and the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs.
Despite calling it effectively a “miracle drug” against the virus and calling on government medical authorities to review the data, the government continues to push for vaccination and punish those doctors who prescribe this effective and affordable treatment that has the power to put Big Pharma’s considerable vaccine profits at risk.
When politics are allowed to take precedence over the opinions of the experienced doctors who are actually treating patients, everybody loses. Dr. Lawrie maintains that millions of lives could have been saved had people been given Ivermectin once medical colleagues started informing authorities of its efficacy.
She said: “With politicians and other nonmedical individuals dictating to us what we are allowed to prescribe to the ill, we as doctors have been put in a position such that our ability to uphold the Hippocratic oath is under attack.”

ABC’s Hostin: Republicans Are Treating Biden Like a Black President
ABC legal analyst Sunny Hostin said Thursday on ABC’s “The View” that Republicans treated President Joe Biden like a black president.
Hostin said, “There are things that he has not gotten credit for, like he’s inherited this pandemic from the Trump administration. It was badly handled. He was able to pass a 1.9 trillion dollar relief package which a majority of Republicans voted against. That’s something that he gets credit for. I think he also gets credit for his incredibly diverse judicial nominations. I think there has been about 41 federal judges. Those are lifetime appointments.”
She continued, “I think where he hasn’t done well is basically delivering federal policy in favor of the people who put him in the White House, and that is communities of color. We didn’t see any movement on voting rights. We didn’t see any movement in police reform.”
Hostin added, “The infrastructure was a leaning-into white independence, and I think it was a leaning into white moderates, but the bottom line is, those aren’t the folks who really took him over the finish line. That is not the Democratic base. No Democratic president has made it into the White House without the support of the black community. The black community now, voters 50 and over that are registered, there’s been a 36-point drop in the net approval. What I took away was he said something like I had no idea that my Republican friends would do this. Well, he’s governing like it’s the 1990s. It’s 2022. He sat for eight years next to a black president yet didn’t think he would be treated like one, and that is what he is being treated like.”

Behar: ‘Dense’ Biden Thought Other White Privileged Senators Would Work with Him
Joy Behar told her co-hosts Thursday on ABC’s “The View” that President Joe Biden was “dense” for thinking his fellow “white privileged” senators would work with him.
Whoopi Goldberg said, “Part of the problem for Joe is none of us, none of us ever anticipated we would be sitting in front of senators and congresspeople who are denying the fact that someone won an election. I never saw that before. I don’t think it occurred to him that would ever be Republicans who would go that far to say this was a lie. I think a lot of this, he thought, you know, we’ll beat each other up as we have in the past. This is a whole new group.”
Behar said, “But, Whoopi n the ’90s Newt Gingrich, had a contract on America.”
Ana Navarro said, “With America.”
Behar shot back, “I like to say it was on America. Then you have Mitch McConnell say that his whole idea going forward with Obama was to make sure he was a one-term president. Then he said about Biden, we’re going to obstruct, and we’re not going to let him do anything he wants to do. So I mean, how dense was Biden really in these instances? You’re a white privilege senator in the United States Congress, so you believe other white privilege guys will work with you, but they won’t, and they don’t.”
