Ivermectin: Horse hockey vs. truth

Shhhhh. The information I’m about to share with you is dangerous and subversive. You cannot publish it on social media platforms without risking scary labels and permanent suspensions. You and anyone you discuss this topic with will be called anti-science “kooks,” “conspiracy theorists,” or “quacks.”

So be it. I’ve been called every pejorative name in the globalist elites’ overworn handbook of ad hominem over the past 30 years. Who cares?

The airwaves have been littered the past month with disparaging reports about Ivermectin, which the U.S. Food and Drug Administration warns should not be used to treat or prevent COVID-19. “You are not a horse. You are not a cow. Seriously, y’all Stop it,” the official FDA Twitter account snidely admonished last week.

Well, you are not a sheep, either. So don’t be cowed by Big Pharma and their bought-off Swamp bureaucrats. Seriously, y’all. These are the performative actors who’ve flipped and flopped on masks, rushed experimental jabs to market, brazenly denied deadly adverse events, and advocated mix-and-match booster shots as part of the most notorious junk science experiment in human history.

First things first: The government and corporate media’s repeated description of Ivermectin in headline after headline as a “horse de-wormer” is pure propaganda. Yes, it is used as an anti-parasitic for animals. But Ivermectin has been used to treat humans for parasitic infections for more than three decades. As Wisconsin critical care specialist Dr. Pierre Kory and his colleagues affiliated with the Memphis VA Medical Center-University of Tennessee, University of Texas Health Science Center, Hackensack School of Medicine, and Eastern Virginia Medical School noted in a recent literature review published in the peer-reviewed medical journal, the American Journal of Therapeutics:

“Originally introduced as a veterinary drug, [Ivermectin] soon made historic impacts in human health, improving the nutrition, general health, and well-being of billions of people worldwide ever since it was first used to treat onchocerciasis (river blindness) in humans in 1988. It proved ideal in many ways, given that it was highly effective, broad-spectrum, safe, well tolerated, and could be easily administered. Although it was used to treat a variety of internal nematode infections, it was most known as the essential mainstay of 2 global disease elimination campaigns that has nearly eliminated the world of two of its most disfiguring and devastating diseases.”

That’s right. Billions of humans around the world have taken Ivermectin (approved by the FDA and considered an “essential medicine” by the World Health Organization) under mass distribution programs to eradicate onchocerciasis (river blindness) and other tropical diseases. Ivermectin has also been shown to inhibit a broad range of viruses in laboratory studies, including HIV, influenza, West Nile virus, and other RNA viruses. In 2018, more than 130,000 patients in the U.S. were prescribed the drug. It is a human drug no matter how many times the mad cows in the media try to fear-monger you into believing otherwise.

So, should Ivermectin be pursued as a treatment or prophylaxis for COVID-19?

The COVID control freaks don’t even want you to ask the question out loud or debate it on the Internet. But unlike farm animals, you can exercise your free will and search for the evidence yourselves:

*A study in the peer-reviewed journal Antiviral Research reported that Ivermectin inhibited the replication of SARS-CoV-2 in vitro and concluded that “ivermectin is worthy of further consideration as a possible SARS-CoV-2 antiviral.”


*An analysis published in the peer-reviewed journal International Journal of Antimicrobial Agents in November 2020 found that “countries with routine mass drug administration of prophylactic chemotherapy including ivermectin have a significantly lower incidence of COVID-19… Prophylactic use of ivermectin against parasitic infections is most common in Africa and we hence show that the reported correlation is highly significant both when compared among African nations as well as in a worldwide context…It is suggested that ivermectin be evaluated for potential off-label prophylactic use in certain cases to help bridge the time until a safe and effective vaccine becomes available.”

*A small, pilot double-blind, placebo-controlled randomized clinical trial conducted in Spain and published in The Lancet in January didn’t find statistically significant differences in COVID viral loads, but did find “a marked reduction of self-reported anosmia/hyposmia, a reduction of cough and a tendency to lower viral loads and lower [antibody] titers which warrants assessment in larger trials.”

*A systematic review of Ivermectin’s antiviral effects published in the peer-reviewed journal Nature found that it “could serve as a potential candidate in the treatment of a wide range of viruses including COVID-19 as well as other types of positive-sense single-stranded RNA viruses.”

*A study in the peer-reviewed journal Chest found statistically significant lower mortality rates among hospitalized COVID patients prescribed Ivermectin (along with hydroxychloroquine, azithromycin, or both) compared with patients without Ivermectin in Broward County, Florida.

You can find more related studies on Ivermectin and COVID in PubMed, the federal scientific database, and weigh all the costs and benefits for you and your families. Remember:

“Misinformation” simply means information that the powers that be want you to miss.

  1. This propaganda campaign is a crime against humanity since the India experience where the medical leaders recognized the emergency and threw aside the tainted advice of the World Health Association led to the solution of the covid problem there, in a population over a billion. The only exceptions were a couple of provinces where the establishment advice was followed and the death rate remained high. The reason for the criticism is that Ivermectin and others attacked such as HCQ, attacked only based on the fact Trump recommended it, negated the need for the experimental genetic clot shots and the deaths they cause. It also made criminal the fascism now being employed to force the use of these failing, murderous, potentially massively lethal drugs, and the massive effort being employed to cover-up their ineffectiveness and dangerousness.

  4. Whatever happened to a woman’s right to control her own body? (A man’s right to control his own head. Abolish motorcycle helmet laws.)

    It’s really something how big employers (the government!) blatantly demonstrate their contempt for discrimination of any kind, but then threaten to sanction their employees who refuse the vax (i.e. hold a particular creed).

    I don’t know what to make of vax requirements for those who have already recovered from the virus. I recently saw someone (was it a celebrity?) on the always-crappy TV news who while self-quarantining from Delta, expressed her relief that she had previously vaxxed. “My condition would have been so much worse!”


    I don’t want people to get sick, but I’m naturally delighted to hear that an outbreak of the virus, at a public school, has resulted in that school being ordered closed.

    The schools have always been disease incubators; many of them long made physically dangerous by the presence of bullies and junior thugs. It’s about time that the schools get officially declared as public health hazards.

    The evil can end tomorrow with the mass production and distribution of this cheap, safe, and effective drug.

    But of course it’s not about ending the pandemic. An error of such magnitude can only be deliberate. It’s about establishing the new normal of permanent lockdowns, injections by coercion, dependence on the system, and gradual culling of the herd.

    Prepare to take a stand or hunker down. This is the big one. We are nearing a Borodino or Stalingrad or a retreat in depth to buy time. Will vary from front to front.

  6. Thanks Michelle.

    It’s criminal that the left has politicized medicine and this has surely cost many lives.

    Big pharma wants you to believe that nothing can stop covid but their “vaccines.”

    Filthy lying greedy scum.

    IVERMECTIN WORKS: “A 5-day course of ivermectin was found to be safe and effective in treating adult patients with mild COVID-19.”

  8. Wife and I are living proof that ivermectin works and it will save your life.

    Wife, daughter and I got Covid same time. Daughter age 20 has the least impact and symptoms. Initial symptoms 8/7/2021.

    3 days after initial Covid symptoms, wife and i were in bad shape.

    Thanks be to God on day 3 we found Dr in our church who followed FLCCC protocol and willing to treat us.

    Dr confirmed that specific pharmacies in our city would NOT dispense ivermectin if for Covid treatment and therefore may be a challenge to find a pharmacy that would dispense and have it in stock.

    Blessed found an pharmacy that had it and would dispense it.

    Within 24 hrs of initial ivermectin dose, severe symptoms started subsiding. Within 72 hrs most of severe symptoms were gone.

    Unfortunately we didn’t get on the ivermectin initial days so it got into our lungs and started impacting our oxygen levels on days 7 & 8. So we continued the ivermectin dosage and started breathing treatments at home (all 3 of us have asthma so we had the equipment and medicine for nebulizer).

    Wife respiratory and oxygen levels stabilized days 9 & 10 and tested negative on day 11.

    My oxygen levels still not improving so Dr doubled my dose of ivermectin. 2nd and 3rd tests were positive for me during this time.

    Dr put me on fluvoxamine day 16 to help with lung inflammation. It helped a lot and allowed me to stop breathing treatments. Side effects not good but at least I could breath better.

    After 5 days of double dose of ivermectin and on day 21 I tested negative and oxygen levels stabilized.

    None of our other doctors were willing to treat us using FLCCC protocol. If it weren’t for the Dr in our church, I’m 100% confident we would have been hospitalized and God knows if we would have survived.

  9. The war against ivermectin may just be another example of the Evil corruption of Western ‘elites’ in this case protecting BigPharma profits from hugely expensive medications being developed, and their experimental gene therapy ‘vaccines’. Or it may be something even more sinister. One thing for sure, once again its shows what Evil, moronic, pig ignorant yet arrogant, Western MSM presstitutes are.

    The vaccine is a lethal injection that was prepared to kill you, in a few year’s time, after they have injected as many people as possible with it.

    Your slavemasters have built a new, technologically-dominated world which does not require so many brainwashed slaves, especially those who will be collecting government benefits without paying taxes.

    In two years or so, those of you are vaccinated and sick, but have not died yet, will be offered a miracle cure for all that ails you. One small downside; you will have to pledge allegiance to the anti-Christ. There is no running from it or avoiding it, as it is called not a One (region, city, county, state, country) Government, but a One WORLD Goverment. Most of you reading this and have taken the lethal injection, will be somehwere between unmoved, confused and angry, because there is nothing that can be said to counteract 50-or-so-years of televised propaganda.

  23. The following info is not anti-vaccine. We have options, in the prevention of covid. Knowledge is power. Early treatment is key!

    FLCCC, Frontline Covid 19 Critical Care Alliance
    Their protocol focus is Ivermectin. They have case studies from around the world showing its efficacy.

    Dr. Paul Marik, w/United Memorial Medical Center, TX, has implemented the Ivermectin protocols. This link is a testimonial, from Dr. Manny Espinoza. is a wealth of information. Protocols Tab: info on prophylactic, early, late and long-haul treatment plans.

    Testimonials Tab: a variety of situations, with Ivermectin success. Families are resorting to court orders, to get hospitals to try Ivermectin.

    Ivermectin Tab: lists pharmacies and Physicians, around the U.S. and the world, where you can get the drug.

    About Tab: see video under the FLCCC Alliance story link, w/Dr. Kory’s medical presentation to a group in Malaysia. He outlines how Ivermectin came to be used.

    Public Statements Tab: Dr. Korey’s 12/8/20 Senate testimony.

    Videos & Press Tab: see Sep 2nd Weekly Update. Worth a watch!

  24. @Priss Factor

    Regarding that important and timely advice from Wendy Molyneux, it was those last two “fucks” that convinced me. That’s it. I can’t argue with cold hard logic like that. I’m on the way to the clinic as soon as it opens… wait, how BIG are those needles again?! I’m scared. Hold my hand, Wendy, and please tell me why just like you told me before…

  25. @Cielo

    Even if you find a doctor who will prescribe it, good luck at finding a pharmacy that will fill that ‘script.

  26. Thekid says:

    Isn’t warfarin (rat poison) used as an anti-blood clotting medication for some people or just more wacky science?

  27. PJ London says:

    The chairman of the Tokyo Medical Association,

    Dr. Ozaki cited evidence from African nations that have utilized Ivermectin during the pandemic. He stated: “In Africa, if we compare countries distributing Ivermectin once a year with countries who do not give Ivermectin… they don’t give Ivermectin to prevent COVID but to prevent parasitic disease… if we look at COVID numbers in countries that give Ivermectin, the number of cases is 134.4/100,000 and the number of deaths is 2.2/100,000.”

    In 2019, Japan’s death rate from influenza amounted to 2.9 death cases per 100,000 inhabitants.

    The Tokyo Medical Association chairman compared statistics from African countries that did use Ivermectin yearly with those that did not: “Now African countries which do not distribute Ivermectin: 950.6 cases per 100,000 and 29.3 deaths per 100,000.”

    So treating a population once per YEAR with Ivermectin reduces Covid deaths from 29.3 per 100,000 to 2.2 per 100,000.

    What is there to discuss?

    To buy ivermectin: Ask for a quote on, say, 500 x 12mg tabs. You’ll get multiple quotes. I paid \$60 for 500, delivered. Took about 2-3 weeks to arrive.
    I went with the quote from Kachhela Medex. Sent the money using, way cheaper than a bank wire.

  35. In rat studies, the drug “advertised” here reduced testosterone and fertility in male rats. I am not a physician so I am not sure what that means.

    Who ever said that ivermectin affected fertility? Oh, I see-I just read your article. Copious apologies, but I still maintain that a possible effect on fertility is much outweighed by curing river blindness and filiariasis, etc and avoiding the gene therapy injections. In the latter case, the course of treatment is brief.

    How fascinating that Trump voters would prefer to use a drug that reduces testosterone and leads to infertility instead of using the vaccine developed by the Trump administration. Male sperm counts have been declining for years anyway–it is exactly what Hillary would want. Pure genius actually to get Hillary’s “deplorable” to sterilize themselves in a big pout.
