Ajudge ordered Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital last week to give a Covid-19 patient an experimental treatment, and her family and attorneys say they believe that saved 80-year-old Judith Smentkiewicz's life. The drug Ivermectin – a pill sometimes used to treat children with head lice or to rid dogs and cats of worms – is not yet approved by the federal government for use against Covid-19. But Smentkiewicz's son and daughter call it “a miracle drug” in their court papers.

Comments:

Read and weep for all the deaths that could have been prevented. Like HCQ this was proposed as a treatment early 2020.

And now the rest of the story. NIH has just approved this as a treatment for Covid. Heads should roll. I've already seen a scummy 'rat site claim that by Trump mentioning HCQ he delayed the investigation of drugs like this. Effin' unbelievable. Who benefitted from the delay? Who will claim the credit now?

Does Ivermectin have a generic equivalent and does it cost less than $1,500 for a course of treatment?

Ivermectin is routinely given by school nurses to kindergartners for head lice. Probably costs four or five dollars per dose.

Sorry to post again but had to answer #2. Ivermectin has been around for decades and cost cents/pill. Why do you think this an hydroxychloroquine were stalled?

According to online information on "Drugs.com" about the well known anti-parasitic drug ivermectin: **An in vitro trial has shown ivermectin reduces the number of cell-associated viral RNA by 99.8 % in 24 hours. An in vitro study is when they study cells in a laboratory and not in a living organism. **More studies are now needed to be done using ivermectin on people or animals to see how well ivermectin works against COVID-19. This is in vivo testing. **Ivermectin is currently a FDA approved medicine for treatment of intestinal worms, Strongyloides stercoralis and Onchocerca volvulus. It has been established as safe for human use. OK, take home info. 1) FDA established safe for human use. 2) extremely effective in a test tube test of wiping out ChiCom flu, and quickly. Seems like anyone who is extremely sick should give this a shot. FDA established as safe for human use says a lot. If nothing else is working, why not give this a try? When does Trump's "Right to Try" law kick in? According to the NIH web site, they recommend AGAINST using ivermectin for ChiCom flu except in clinical trials. https://www.covid19treatmentguidelines.nih.gov/antiviral-therapy/ivermectin/ #1, do you have a source for your information that NIH has approved this? The source I found says it is NOT recommended.

As to cost, this is the ingredient in some dog heartworm prevention treatments, although it requires a vet prescription to order. I guess we just need to find some reasonable docs, interested in patient outcomes, not politics. Sadly, that once was the normal thing. It seems to be getting rarer every year.

I blame BigPharma and their accomplices, the FDA and CDC, for withholding early treatments with HCQ and/or Ivermectin from us. No money in it and when they insist on further studies necessary, who was going to fund it? There is no money to be made for any companies, so no funding, so we have all been locked down, getting sick and dying because of greed. It sounds harsh but that is how I see it. Poorer countries, who have little hope of the vaccine any time soon, use these drugs and their death rates are far below ours. What a joke this has been. I blame doctors too who have been too frightened to use simple, safe drugs to treat sick patients.

#2, I erecting is readily available at farm supply stores and veterinarian supply. It is relatively inexpensive and have used it to deworm and delouse cattle for years. Itis also use on dogs and maybe cats under a different name. I'm sure I have absorbed plenty of this product over the years from having it splashed on me. There is also an injectable form, not sure about the pills One of the trade names is Ivomek, I'm sure there are others. I would not be afraid to figure the dosage and rub some on my skin if needed. The dosage is of course printed right on the label.

Having dosed livestock with this stuff and in the process gotten it all moved my hands, were it to cause cancer or the growth of extra limbs, I would have been doomed long ago. Great mite and worm med. This stuff was mentioned as a Covid killer 4 or 5 mos ago but there was no profit for Fauci and big pharma in it so no press and people died. We are just eggs for omlettes to our elitist lords.

Thanks for the link, #18. A search of NIH this morning still turned up the "not recommended" page, so clearly NIH doesn't do much to keep their information up to date on their site.

Interesting info for those looking to educate themselves on the latest treatment protocol for ChiCom flu. Today's patients need to be informed. https://covid19criticalcare.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/12/MATH-plus-Rationale-Journal-of-Intensive-Care-Medicine-Dec2020.pdf Note that ascorbic acid (Vitimin C) is one of the pieces of the treatment protocol, dosage depending on how much supplemental oxygen flow rate the patient is requiring. I have been taking 1000 mg of ascorbic acid every morning since last March. And lots of D3 vitamin, too.

The doctors in the small town I live near to refuse to give any treatment for covid until the person needs hospitalization. I have talked to several people who have or know someone who has treated themselves with Ivermectin. It works. My dog got sick with it when I had it a couple of weeks ago. It was time for his Heartguard heart worm medicine. He was feeling bad. the second morning after I gave him his Heartworm medication, he was bouncing around like a little puppy, he felt so good. My dog took very good care of me too. Doctors at a tax supported hospital who refuse to give their patients such inexpensive help that could keep them out of the hospital should be charged with murder, and force to share a cell with officials at CDC, FDA, and governors that outlaw it.

Amazing. Another drug used to treat cats and dogs for worms, fenbendazole, is reportedly very effective against cancer tumors, and targets them directly with no side effects to humans. Naturally, big pharma will not study it or let the news about its effectiveness get out. Must be something about these types of drugs that destroy viruses and cancer that needs to be studied. Look it up, check the facts, and decide for yourself. That is what free people do, without the permission or intervention of government or "authorities."

This is interesting. In what form is ivermectin available in farm stores? Do they require prescription? Here is a recommendation as a propholaxis. I am already doing the D3 and C vitamins, may add the zinc and others. https://covid19criticalcare.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/11/FLCCC_Alliance-I-MASKplus-Protocol-v8-2021-01-12-ENGLISH.pdf

Senator Rand Paul (R., Ky.) warned Friday that one third of Republican voters could leave the party if GOP senators vote in impeachment proceedings to convict President Trump. Paul made the comments in an interview on Fox News’s The Ingraham Angle. The senator’s remarks come amid an increasing divide between congressional Republicans who oppose impeaching the president, and a smaller number who support the measure following the riots at the Capitol on January 6. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) is reportedly hopeful that Republicans can use impeachment to purge Trump from the GOP...

Various left-wing writers (some of them nominally Republican) have been salivating over the prospects of a GOP civil war. Nothing would make them happier than to see Republicans tearing each other apart in a fight over President Trump and the future of the GOP. However, this will not happen. It is a sign of how self-delusional the anti-Trump forces are that they could look at the House of Representatives vote on impeaching President Trump (for the second time) and convince themselves this is the harbinger of a Republican civil war. The House voted 232-197 Wednesday to impeach the president. Every

During former President Bill Clinton’s testimony before a grand jury about his Oval Office shenanigans with 22-year-old White House intern Monica Lewinsky, the Philanderer in Chief shrewdly said, in response to a question, “It depends upon what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is.” In Apple CEO Tim Cook’s case, it depends on what his meaning of “that” is. More precisely, in the case of Apple’s de-platforming of conservative-leaning social media site Parler, it matters a hell of a lot what Cook’s meaning of “that” is, when he says of Parler: “We don’t consider that free speech.”

As has long been transparently predictable, the eve of the inauguration of Joe Biden has coincided with the determination of state and local elected Democrat officials that the threat of a COVID-19 pandemic has passed, and economic and social life in Democrat-controlled cities and states can now begin to return to “normal”. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo made his view known earlier this week: New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Tuesday he wants to start opening restaurants, theaters and offices by launching rapid testing sites in New York City and eventually at hundreds of new sites in other city centers throughout the state.

Dr. Anthony Fauci on Sunday warned that “more ominous” strains of COVID-19 have emerged out of South Africa and Brazil. The Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases said they’re looking “very carefully” at the two new mutant variants in addition to another highly-contagious one that was first detected in the United Kingdom. “People need to realize there’s more than one mutant strain,” Fauci told NBC anchor Chuck Todd on “Meet the Press.” “There’s one from the UK that’s essentially dominated… There’s another more ominous one that’s in South Africa and Brazil.” Fauci said he doesn’t want “people to panic,”

This past week, Texas State Historical Association chief historian Walter Buenger made two controversial assertions regarding the Alamo in a story published by USA Today. Although the battle has become a symbol of patriotism and freedom for many Texans and Americans, like the Confederate monuments erected after the Civil War, the myth of the Alamo has been used to “commemorate whiteness,” according to Walter L Buenger, Texas State Historical Association chair. The battle itself was relatively insignificant tactically speaking, but it gained recognition decades later in the 1890s as backlash to African Americans gaining more political power and Mexican immigration increasing

Last week, Wyoming Republican Liz Cheney voted to impeach President Trump. Conservatives were outraged. The Wyoming GOP denounced her. Congressman Jim Jordan threatened to oust her from House Republican leadership. Pundits called for someone to challenge Cheney in her 2022 primary.Meanwhile, establishment Republicans rallied to Cheney’s defense. Dan Crenshaw said that Cheney was “principled” and “fierce.” Peggy Noonan defended Cheney in a lengthy Wall Street Journal opinion piece. When reporters asked a National Republican Congressional Committee spokesman about Cheney’s vote, he sidestepped the question and focused on the 2022 elections, saying the Committee’s “job is to take back the [House] majority.”

Did you know that 1300 people—including 800 kids—had their lives irreparably destroyed after a shot of the rushed-to-market Swine Flu vaccine left them with incurable narcolepsy? [Tweet] Probably not, I suppose, since our media has gone into full-time shilling for the vastly more rushed-to-market product Pfizer’s now peddling as a COVID-19 prophylactic. Say what you will about that disastrous Swine Flu vax, however. Unlike the mRNA technology that Pfizer’s currently pushing on a mostly unsuspecting world, at least it really meets the definition of a vaccine. The CDC defines a vaccine as “a product that stimulates a person’s immune system to produce immunity to a specific disease.”
Pelosi’s Third Impeachment Folly 26 replies

Does the President have a right to free speech? Josh Blackman, a constitutional law professor writing on The Volokh Conspiracy, suggests he certainly does and that his speech on January 6 is a weak reed (as was Nancy Pelosi’s past impeachment folly) on which to gain a conviction in the Senate. (Remember an impeachment vote in the House is basically an indictment with no effect unless the Senate finds guilt after a trial.) Looking at the most analogous case, the impeachment of President Andrew Jackson, he finds plenty of reason for senators to vote against it.
