(Jan. 17, 2022) — Discussion on the treatment of COVID-19 early in its progression with repurposed drugs such as ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine has recently broken through to the mainstream media despite an 18+-month blockade.
At different times, the two aforementioned drugs became pariahs of the legacy media, which worked to promote the narrative that the only effective method of combating the “pandemic” was vaccination with experimental products.
Last year the prescription of hydroxychloroquine for coronavirus was criminalized in Australia and France after then-President Donald J. Trump promoted it as a promising treatment and one he himself had taken as a prophylactic. More recently, ivermectin has been in the crosshairs of U.S. health agencies, which the FDA has deceptively depicted, though approving it for certain uses decades ago, as “horse” or “cow” medicine. However, the FDA clarified that ivermectin is being tested in clinical trials for possible efficacy against COVID-19 in humans.
Clearly in lockstep, the mainstream media and government health agencies have urged all Americans to take the COVID-19 “vaccine” products while ignoring the hundreds of thousands of adverse events reported in the 13 months in which they have been available and the more than 21,000 deaths reported to VAERS as having resulted from the vaccines. It is widely believed that the degree of “underreporting” to VAERS, the U.S. Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, is significant.
One of those deaths was 16-year-old Ernest Ramirez, Jr., an only child whose father has now dedicated his life to exposing the dangers of the Pfizer product to children.
Another child, then-12-year-old Maddie de Garay, was catastrophically injured from her second Pfizer shot during a clinical trial conducted in early 2021 and is now confined to a wheelchair.
Even as the CDC has acknowledged the vaccines’ efficacy to have waned over time, it continues to insist that vaccination, to include “booster” shots, is the best way to control the transmission of the coronavirus and implied that life can return to normal for those who take the products. “COVID-19 vaccines are effective at helping protect against severe disease and death from the virus that causes COVID-19, including known variants currently circulating (e.g., Delta variant),” the CDC stated on January 12.
According to NIAID Director Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, who funded “gain-of-function” research into coronaviruses despite his congressional testimony to the contrary, the newest COVID-19 “variant,” “Omicron,” “will find ‘just about everybody.’”
Very early on Sunday, Dr. Robert W. Malone, a key innovator and patent-holder of the mRNA technology utilized in the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 “vaccines,” published a lengthy post on his Substack addressing, in part, what he said was “an unprovoked ad homonym attack” [sic] by former New York Times columnist Alex Berenson during a Friday-night discussion on The Ingraham Angle about big-tech censorship.
Both Malone and Berenson have been deplatformed by Twitter, and on Friday guest host Raymond Arroyo asked both to comment on the growing demands for censorship of views opposing the government’s COVID-19 narrative and push for universal vaccination.
The Post & Email notes that the YouTube video of the show to which we linked in our article published Saturday is now marked “private.” However, in his first post responsive to Berenson’s off-topic criticism, Malone provided a link to the interview on BitChute.
Last week a group of 270 physicians, academics, nurses, students and other like-minded parties sent a letter to Spotify asking that it “implement a misinformation policy” so as to silence “controversial” content relative to the scientific community, and specifically, a December 31 Joe Rogan Experience podcast in which Malone shared his views on the COVID-19 vaccine products and the government’s handling of the “pandemic” in general.
“Dr. Malone used the JRE platform to further promote numerous baseless claims, including several falsehoods about COVID-19 vaccines and an unfounded theory that societal leaders have “hypnotized” the public,” the group claimed. “Many of these statements have already been discredited. Notably, Dr. Malone is one of two recent JRE guests who has compared pandemic policies to the Holocaust. These actions are not only objectionable and offensive, but also medically and culturally dangerous.”
To the surprise of many, when Arroyo asked Berenson to comment on his own censorship, Berenson responded by accusing Malone of inflating his credentials and making false claims about ivermectin.
While Malone has said ivermectin can be effective against certain diseases, he does not treat patients and is surpassed in his promotion of the drug by many other physicians who have reported prescribing it to their patients, including Dr. Peter A. McCullough, Dr. Pierre Kory, America’s Frontline Doctors (AFLDS), and Dr. Paul Marik.
Last week, Maine physician Dr. Meryl Nass, who has more than 40 years’ experience in treating patients, had her medical license suspended and was ordered to take a “neuropsychological” exam for allegedly disseminating “misinformation” about COVID-19 treatments.
According to the Alliance for Human Research Protection, Nass has objected to mandatory vaccinations since at least 2019.
In April 2020, Marik and Kory co-founded the Front Line Covid-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC), which developed protocols for the prevention and early treatment of the virus. According to the website, more than 2,300 medical professionals from around the world have embraced the protocols.
In December, as replayed on Bartiromo’s January 9 broadcast, retired neurosurgeon and former HUD Secretary Dr. Ben Carson promoted the use of “therapeutics” such as hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin (7:39) against the coronavirus. “Let’s not have tunnel vision and say, ‘Just everybody get the vaccine…,” Carson said.
“We need to fix” a “broken system” which promotes “obscene profits to the pharmaceutical companies,” Kory told Bartiromo in the same interview, to which she responded, “That is disgusting. I know for a fact that hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin work to treat COVID.”
Bartiromo then asked Johnson the motivation behind the discouragement of inexpensive therapeutics for treatment of the virus. “Is this administration trying to ensure that these big-pharma companies make $90 billion on vaccines and people don’t go for the cheaper alternatives which are off-patent?” she asked.
“I don’t know what other explanation there really would be…,” Johnson responded. “Doctors have off-label prescription rights…-I’m the champion of ‘right-to-try’…”
Kory and McCullough have contended that a majority of those who reportedly have died from COVID-19 could have been saved had they been administered therapeutics early in the disease’s progression.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) and related U.S.-government websites such as clinicaltrials.gov are replete with papers reporting favorable results, or recommending that clinical trials be conducted, of ivermectin use in patients with confirmed COVID-19. Some physicians in other countries have reported success and faster recovery times after ivermectin was administered; though not endorsing it for the treatment of coronavirus, the World Health Organization (WHO) considers it an “essential medicine.”
A column published January 13 by Joyce Kamen, who is affiliated with the FLCCC, at the Substack website “RESCUE” reports that a British study showed favorable results from treating coronavirus patients with ivermectin but that the data was reclassified as being of “low certainty” following sponsor pressure.
On January 6, Kory published an article titled, “The Global Disinformation Campaign Against Ivermectin in COVID-19 (Part I)” in which he claimed that “the tactics deployed by the pharmaceutical industry in their decades-long war on generic drugs reached a zenith during COVID-19… and have resulted in true crimes against humanity.”
Referring to an article originally published in 2017 by the Union of Concerned Scientists claiming that “business interests deceive, misinform, and by influence at the expense of public health and safety,” Kory expounded:
Ivermectin, a decades-old, off-patent drug costing pennies to make, with an unparalleled safety profile and numerous manufacturers across the world, actually sits atop one of the largest and strongest clinical trials evidence base in history. The existing, massive amount of clinical trials data shows immense efficacy against COVID-19 in all its phases; prevention, early and late treatment, and long-haul syndrome (no actual trials in long-haul but rather extensive positive clinical experiences). Despite this inarguable (yes, inarguable) supportive evidence, no major Western or international health agency has recommended its use in COVID-19. Conversely, ivermectin has been officially adopted for early treatment in all or part of 23 “less developed” countries (39 if you include non-government medical organizations), and which include about 25% of the world’s population.
Further, Kory contended, there exists “insanely positive evidence” that ivermectin is effective in treating COVID-19. Sourced from the website c19early.com, Kory wrote, “With ivermectin, what sets it apart from all the other compounds tested, is the sheer number of randomized and observational controlled trials that have been performed to date. It is #1 among the ‘green box’ compounds given it has been tested in 73 controlled trials which include an unheard-of 56,804 patients. Why unheard of? Because never in history has a medicine been so thoroughly tested, with such consistent positive results, yet led to a situation where governmental agencies in highly developed countries call for even more placebo-controlled trials to be done.. and then slow walk to doing them.”
In September, a writer for Business Insider termed Marik and Kory “fringe doctors” for advocating ivermectin as a treatment for COVID-19 “hinged on twisted science.”
Having encompassed several topics in his Sunday post, Malone concluded by expounding on an anecdote he had shared on The Ingraham Angle Friday night: that a colleague had just returned from the Uttar Pradesh province of India, which in early December reported having arrested the spread of COVID-19.
“The state Health Department introduced Ivermectin as prophylaxis for close contacts of Covid patients, health workers as well as for the treatment of the patients themselves through a government order on August 6, 2020, after a committee headed by the Director General, Medical and Health Services, gave it the go ahead,” The Indian Express reported December 5. “‘Uttar Pradesh was the first state in the country to introduce large-scale prophylactic and therapeutic use of Ivermectin. In May-June 2020, a team at Agra, led by Dr Anshul Pareek, administered Ivermectin to all RRT team members in the district on an experimental basis. It was observed that none of them developed Covid-19 despite being in daily contact with patients who had tested positive for the virus,’ Uttar Pradesh State Surveillance Officer Vikssendu Agrawal said.”
In his post, Malone pointed out that India’s death rate from COVID-19 is far lower than that of the United States and “the overall world average for deaths/million population.”
“What public policies are responsible for this amazing difference in outcomes?” Malone asked, then responded to his question with:
The curious case of the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh is often sited. Densely populated, relatively poor, and they have absolutely crushed the COVID-19 death curve. Widespread availability of a package distributed throughout the region, rumored to contain the repurposed drug Ivermectin, have often been credited for this amazing success. But until now, these rumors have remained unsubstantiated. As I mentioned recently on the Fox segment in response to the unprovoked attack by Mr. Berenson, a close colleague of mine recently returned from a vacation in the region. Prompted by my specific request that she seek out evidence of the contents of these “care packages” which have been made available throughout the region, she returned with the following photograph of the list of ingredients. As is often observed, a picture is worth a thousand words.
So, without further ado, I am glad to finally be able to provide photographic evidence of what is responsible for the miracle of Uttar Pradesh. I have nothing more to add, other than that an apology is owed (By Mr. Berenson and many others) to the many brave physicians who have persisted, against enormous coordinated media and governmental pressure, to prescribe this agent as a key component of the staged early treatment protocols responsible for saving countless lives across the USA and the world.
Below the narrative is a photo showing the label, “COVID ISOLATION KIT,” whose ingredients were listed as a thermometer and oximeter, Vitamin D, the antibiotic doxycycline, “Multivitamin including zinc,” and ten tablets of ivermectin in the 12-mg potency.
Episode 6 of “Vaccine Secrets: RELOADED,” which is no longer viewable at this writing other than through purchase, is titled, “Vaccine Alternatives: Safe & effective Treatments that are ‘Cancelled.'”
This writer can attest to the FLCCC’s early treatment regimen, minus ivermectin but along with an anti-viral protocol promoted by McCullough and nutraceutical support recommended by a naturopath, as being highly effective in curtailing the replication and length of COVID-19. With that regimen, our illness lasted approximately one week and quickly dissipated as we provided care to other family members.
