https://sebastianrushworth.com/2021/05/09/update-on-ivermectin-for-covid-19/

Back in January I wrote an article about four randomized controlled trials of ivermectin as a treatment for covid-19 that had at that time released their results to the public. Each of those four trials had promising results, but each was also too small individually to show any meaningful impact on the hard outcomes we really care about, like death. When I meta-analyzed them together however, the results suddenly appeared very impressive. Here’s what that meta-analysis looked like:



It showed a massive 78% reduction in mortality in patients treated with covid-19. Mortality is the hardest of hard end points, which means it’s the hardest for researchers to manipulate and therefore the least open to bias. Either someone’s dead, or they’re alive. End of story.

You would have thought that this strong overall signal of benefit in the midst of a pandemic would have mobilized the powers that be to arrange multiple large randomized trials to confirm these results as quickly as possible, and that the major medical journals would be falling over each other to be the first to publish these studies.

That hasn’t happened.

Rather the opposite, in fact. South Africa has even gone so far as to ban doctors from using ivermectin on covid-19 patients. And as far as I can tell, most of the discussion about ivermectin in mainstream media (and in the medical press) has centred not around its relative merits, but more around how its proponents are clearly deluded tin foil hat wearing crazies who are using social media to manipulate the masses.

In spite of this, trial results have continued to appear. That means we should now be able to conclude with even greater certainty whether or not ivermectin is effective against covid-19. Since there are so many of these trials popping up now, I’ve decided to limit the discussion here only to the ones I’ve been able to find that had at least 150 participants, and that compared ivermectin to placebo (although I’ll add even the smaller trials I’ve found in to the updated meta-analysis at the end).

As before, it appears that rich western countries have very little interest in studying ivermectin as a treatment for covid. The three new trials that had at least 150 participants and compared ivermectin with placebo were conducted in Colombia, Iran, and Argentina. We’ll go through each in turn. ...

What we see is a 62% reduction in the relative risk of dying among covid patients treated with ivermectin. That would mean that ivermectin prevents roughly three out of five covid deaths. The reduction is statistically significant (p-value 0,004). In other words, the weight of evidence supporting ivermectin continues to pile up. It is now far stronger than the evidence that led to widespred use of remdesivir earlier in the pandemic, and the effect is much larger and more important (remdesivir was only ever shown to marginally decrease length of hospital stay, it was never shown to have any effect on risk of dying).

I understand why pharmaceutical companies don’t like ivermectin. It’s a cheap generic drug. Even Merck, the company that invented ivermectin, is doing it’s best to destroy the drug’s reputation at the moment. This can only be explained by the fact that Merck is currently developing two expensive new covid drugs, and doesn’t want an off-patent drug, which it can no longer make any profit from, competing with them.

The only reason I can think to understand why the broader medical establishment, however, is still so anti-ivermectin is that these studies have all been done outside the rich west. Apparently doctors and scientists outside North America and Western Europe can’t be trusted, unless they’re saying things that are in line with our pre-conceived notions.


And HCQ falls into that same bucket. Even worse - to admit HCQ works would be to admit Trump was right about something.

Liberals would rather that millions die than that Trump be allowed to be right about anything. They hate Trump more than they love their fellow humans.

How's this going to happen when the government was cooperating with them?

I thought we could force the government to reform, I thought shame would work, but the only way we'll get justice will be revolution and street justice, unfortunately.


Think about an abusive relationship such as a domestic kind. The abuser gets confused then upset as far as the victim not fully complying. Such as the victim questions the abuser's authority. The abuser lashes out and beats the victim.

Think of the movie Sleeping With The Enemy. The husband in that movie was that much of a sociopath and psychopath that every amount of manipulation and abuse seemed natural or second nature for him.

That is what you are up against as far as collective abusers.

If enough people want justice, we will get justice.

Vox populi, vox dei.

So the most fundamental step is to spread the truth as effectively as possible. Memes are good, but lately I think memes in real life (flyers, stickers, chalk, buttons) are much better.

The Soviet Union had complete control over the media there just like Homo-Globo Inc. has complete control over the media here. Yet eventually, enough people realized the truth about their government and it just crumbled one day.

Even one person speaking out has a huge effect on the mezmerized sheep.

What is really needed is virality of the message of truth, where those who hear it feel compelled to pass it on. Christianity took over Europe the same way. Missionaries create more missionaries.

Perhaps.

Our assumption was that what we were up against, was human. We all model other people based off from ourselves. I can understand psychopaths, but only abstractly. I can understand them through a video game, in that, I have no mercy, but also, I have no hatred, I'm just trying to win. I don't think these things can feel, or have actual empathy. I can only experience that in a video game.

Its not hard to understand this behavior without modeling after ourselves. Read about their manipulative behavior and lack of empathy. Its all about winning by any means necessary.

And they do feel, and they do care; its just that they only care about themselves, and their family as well as close-circle of friends.

And if they work for the government, then they have a cult mindset as far as affection of the agency, whereas the "needs of the agency or service" trumps everything else including the Constitution.

The difficulty is thinking they way they do, it's inhuman, subhuman. I don't make the error that they are stupid, they are sociopathic.

You are wrong to think they care about family members. Joe Biden setup a charity for brain cancer research once his child, HIS CHILD, died from brain cancer - he raised around 2 million dollars and stole all the money, pocketed it. He used his son's death, Beau Biden, all the time for his advantage. He (falsely) claims he died in Iraq, he didn't - he died in the United States from the disease. His other son is a slut that fucked his brother's wife and had a kid with her, and a stripper and had a kid with her.

These people are subhuman or something else.

Stop thinking of them as "people like you" - they aren't. Could you imagine taking advantage of the death of a child to make money through a fake charity? Joe Biden did, and this is unimaginable to you, horrific. Joe Biden has no problem doing this. Look at Biden now, he's a senile old man, who protects him? His wife is a sociopath, his kids are sociopaths.

The reason these incompetent assholes rise up, is they have no fucking soul at all. These are things, not people.

Think Joe Biden believes he was really elected? I doubt it, but he has no problem being president. If you were falsely elected, don't you think you'd have a problem with that?

I'm telling you this is like 30% human. It has our genetic phenotype, it looks like us, but it's not human. The dregs of our species are our leaders.

We all see "incompetent" people "falling upwards" - why do you think that happens? The worst of our species climbs to power. Victoria Nuland, Henry Kissinger, Robert Kagan, people who fuck up all the time - why are they at the top? Because they're not fucking up. Their job is to create chaos and misery. That's our leaders.

I know your empathy, I'm telling you, they aren't human.

I seriously mean that. What group of people would agree to enforce an injection of an unknown substance over a pandemic that didn't exist?

Not people. I can see why I'm excluded from this group, they're not human. Sociopaths aren't human. I can understand their thinking, but I cannot engage in it. I was a vegetarian for 25 years, because I realized I would not want to kill an animal, I stopped being a vegetarian because I realized I could pay somebody to do it - also I had a ton of meat in my freezer when I had to put my last dog down, and it would have been immoral to discard it. It makes no difference what I do, either, there was this giant cull of animals during the pandemic because eating habits changed radically during it.

I'm very conflicted about morality and life and death at this point, and what constitutes a human being. What has the population been injected by, and why? The central bank could have just given them money - what's going on? I think we just went through an experiment. Asch conformity test? Milgram experiment? How is it I've been aware of these tricks since my 20's, and in Silly Con Valley, nobody else is? These are tests of conformance, and if you go along, you fail. It's disturbing, how can I can be aware of these and my colleagues can't be - but they still go along. We all had the same education.

It's extremely unsettling. About 1 out of 10 resisted. 10%. My business partner is an MIT graduate whose father is a biologist, and they didn't question anything. They are clearly more intelligent than I am. I'm wondering if intelligence isn't synonymous with obedience - that it's not intelligence at all - just conformity.

What I assumed, was that the more intelligent we were, the more freedom we could experience. I think it's the opposite now. I think the higher you climb, the more you are controlled because you have more to lose. It's unsettling to realize this.

I'm not kidding that when I say the "dumber" the person I talk with, the more information I can exchange and get from them. A farmer isn't dumb, a cashier at a grocery story isn't dumb, a construction worker isn't dumb - an engineer is. A doctor is, a physicist is. Are they dumb or are they lying? I have recently seen Neil deGrasse Tyson tell me that gender is a spectrum. He's a FUCKING SCIENTIST. Logic and rigid thinking beyond your own concepts and beliefs is BASIC in science. I've over-ridden my own biases many times, to my benefit. It's a way of thinking, and Tyson has abandoned it.

The admission by that FDA lawyer doesn’t mean much. The FDA does not really have the power to control what doctors can prescribe. It only controls labeling and marketing of products intended for medical use., and what you can get without a prescription labeled to treat a certain condition.

On a different but hugely consequential note, and related to the long-running outlandish mendacity of the US government, an attorney for the Federal Drug Administration told a federal appeals court in Louisiana hearing a lawsuit last week that the agency actually had no policy against the use of ivermectin for Covid-19.

FDA was not regulating the off-label use of drugs These statements are not regulations they have no legal consequences they don’t prohibit doctors from prescribing Ivermectin to treat COVID or for any other purpose. Quite to the contrary there are three instances I’d like to point the court to in the record that show that FDA explicitly recognizes that doctors do have the authority to prescribe ivermectin to treat COVID.”

How true is that? The FDA coerced Blue Cross and other insurers to warn doctors not to prescribe ivermectin for Covid-19, and likewise the Federation of State Medical Boards and National Association of Boards of Pharmacy to not fill doctor’s prescriptions for ivermectin for Covid-19 patients, despite the fact that it was among the best, most effective, and safest treatments for the disease. The FDA put out public service announcements telling Americans not to take ivermectin. The net effect was that state medical boards persecuted doctors for prescribing the drug (e.g., Maine Medical Board’s persecution of Dr, Meryl Nass). Also that hundreds of thousands of Covid-19 patients were denied early treatment, many of whom died.

We all know why the FDA pretended that ivermectin was not allowed to be used. Because it would have removed the Emergency Use Authorization that designated mRNA shots as the sole response to Covid, and it would have obviated the pharma companies’ liability shield for anything that went wrong. Of course, the whole damn thing went wrong and millions are now paying the price. Is this the beginning of the unwind of a colossal crime by those Rich Men North of Richmond against the people of this land?

It doesn't approve Ivermectin as a treatment, it just allows doctors to prescribe it off-label. They never said it works, and if you ask the FDA, I'm certain they will say it doesn't work.

There's been many studies on the effectiveness of Ivermectin. It's a general anti-viral, and they've known this for a long time. If it's SPECIFICALLY effective against covid? Probably.

My cousin could get access to it. His partner got covid, he got Ivermectin, he took it immediately, he tested positive, never had any symptoms, and never got sick.

It supposedly disrupts the ability of the virus to reproduce. It might legitimately be a fucking drug. Its used as a preventative in Africa for river-blindness, I wonder if viral diseases are down all over? Who knows?

IF IT IS, they'll never tell us. Could you imagine if there was a drug that just ended viral diseases?

Of all the vicious lies spun around the Covid-19 operation, among the most damaging was the campaign to demonize ivermectin, a Nobel Prize-winning true wonder-drug, among the safest known pharmaceuticals ever, effective against disease-causing parasites and also a potent anti-viral agent — which was exactly why the CDC and FDA turned on it. It very effectively subdued Covid-19 infections.

That is, it worked. And because of that, these agencies had to pretend that it was worthless and harmful, to protect the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for the fabulous mRNA vaccines that didn’t work and ended up harming, disabling, and killing many people. Any treatment that proved effective would have invalidated the EUA and negated the liability shield that came with the EUA, protecting the vaccine manufacturers from lawsuits.

A week ago, in a lawsuit brought by three doctors against the FDA for its Covid-19 restrictions, DOJ lawyer Ashley Honold told the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit in Louisiana that “FDA explicitly recognizes that doctors do have the authority to prescribe ivermectin to treat Covid.” Really? After three years of bad-mouthing the drug in public service announcements — horse and cow de-wormer, not for humans! — and telling national boards of physicians not to use it, and telling the national organization of pharmacists not to fill prescriptions for it… which resulted in many states officially forbidding its use … which led to gross injustices such as the State of Maine Medical Board’s obtuse and insane persecution of bio-warfare expert and epidemiologist Dr. Meryl Nass (for which Dr. Nass is now suing them) … and to many other state boards revoking the licenses of doctors….

Days after that howler by DOJ lawyer Honold, the FDA honchos in DC walked back what she told the court, saying, “… it has not authorized or approved ivermectin for use in preventing or treating COVID-19, nor has the agency stated that it is safe or effective for that use.” The agency then invoked its battery of fake excuses for that ruling: studies are inconclusive, blah, blah, which is just more bullshit, you understand, because the bottom line is the same as ever: the FDA will not surrender the EUA and its various protections for the Covid vaccines. And it will employ any official lie to support that position.

It also happened that going back to the 2019 debut of Covid-19, Dr. Anthony Fauci, then-head of the NIAID and Francis Collins then-head of the NIH — two related agencies that funded and supported coronavirus gain-of-function research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology — received many millions of dollars in “royalties” for their part in developing mRNA vaccines against the Covid-19 pathogen that they had priorly developed (the total dollar figure rumored to be above $300-million). See how that worked?

If you are among that segment of the population that has not lost its mind, you might realize that the public health authorities have no authority. They lied outrageously about everything connected with Covid-19. And when they were caught lying, they just lied some more in the vain attempt to cover up their previous lies. And so, it would be foolish to regard anything they say from now on — without a complete house-cleaning of agency personnel, plus some earnest prosecutions — as worth listening to and following.

Authority, you see, is granted only to those who are trustworthy. Yes, it’s really that simple. If an authority lies about everything, and is caught doing it, then it is rendered invalid. Now, it happens that the US public health agencies, huge and costly as they are, make up only one part of the even larger and costlier US government, which has been busy surrendering the authority of all its other parts for years now, to the point that the whole enterprise is untrustworthy and in need of a severe housecleaning. Traditionally, elections are the mechanism for cleaning that house, but our elections have lost their authority, too? Really? How so? Because the untrustworthy officials in charge of them employ dubious systems for gathering the vote: mail-in balloting that invites fraud and hackable vote-counting machines that are connected to the Internet.

The defects of these things are so obvious they can hardly be ignored. And the remedy is obvious and simple, too: paper ballots hand-counted in small precincts of manageable size, all done on one day, which we call Election Day (and which should be a national holiday, so more working people can get to the polls). Somehow, though, we are unable to avail that remedy, probably because the untrustworthy people in charge would lose their jobs and the power they enjoy in a truly fair election. So, they conclude, let’s not have that.

It’s even looking like the untrustworthy public health authorities are ramping up yet a new, fresh Covid-19 scare for the fall, in order to reinforce the special mail-in voting scheme that’s working so nicely (for them), and to disorder the minds of the public so they’ll be too frightened to notice that all the other parts of the government are failing in virtually all their duties to the people of this land. Bring on some new Covid variants and the lovely new booster vax that’ll work so well (not). Go ahead, we should say, I dare you. We won’t be fooled again.

A preprint paper showing ivermectin’s effectiveness against COVID-19 in Peru convinced a group of doctors that widespread ivermectin distribution could end the pandemic in October 2020
Because the paper wasn’t yet peer-reviewed, it was brushed off; ivermectin for COVID-19 was vilified, as were those who dared to prescribe it
Now, the study has been peer-reviewed and published in Cureus, vindicating ivermectin as a treatment for COVID-19
Not only did ivermectin work against COVID-19, it was remarkably effective, resulting in a 74% reduction in excess deaths in the 10 Peru states where it was used most intensively
There was a 14-fold reduction in nationwide excess deaths when ivermectin was readily available and then a 13-fold increase in excess deaths in the two months after ivermectin use was restricted

https://palexander.substack.com/p/boom-court-revives-doctors-lawsuit


A federal appeals court Friday revived a lawsuit by three doctors who say the Food and Drug Administration overstepped its authority in a campaign against treating COVID-19 with the anti-parasite drug ivermectin. ...

But the ruling said the campaign — which at times featured the slogan “You are not a horse!” — too often left out that the drug is sometimes prescribed for humans.

The doctors can proceed with their lawsuit contending that the FDA's campaign exceeded the agency's authority under federal law, the ruling said.

“FDA is not a physician. It has authority to inform, announce, and apprise—but not to endorse, denounce, or advise,” Judge Don Willett wrote for a panel that also included Jennifer Walker Elrod and Edith Brown Clement. “The Doctors have plausibly alleged that FDA’s Posts fell on the wrong side of the line between telling about and telling to.”


Ivermectin was and is first of all a drug for humans, and the discoverer received the Nobel Prize explicitly for its use in humans.

The fact that it also works in animals is secondary.

Practicing medicine without a license is a very strong legal argument and with over 300,000 mRNA vaccine deaths in the USA alone, exposes the pharmacists to a huge liability.

Another group that is practicing medicine without a license are hospitals that have a protocol against Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine. A hospital is not a medical doctor and has no business dictating what medicines your doctor should or should not prescribe to you.

So there is a world-famous toxicologist named Jacques Descotes, and he's French. And two years ago, he was commissioned to do a scoping review of the entire data on the safety of Ivermectin in its history. And his conclusion after doing this comprehensive review is that he does not believe that there has been one single case of anyone dying from an Ivermectin overdose.
