FYI. Interesting video that, if true, seems to implicate many of our healthcare leaders in a misinformation and censorship campaign to suppress Ivermectin use in preventing and treating Covid-19. Watch and reach your own conclusions.

Ivermectin may or may not work against Covid-19, but media coverage of the drug has been sneering, inaccurate—and revealing.
“You are not a horse. You are not a cow. Seriously, y’all. Stop it,” read a recent viral tweet warning readers away from using a certain medication to treat Covid-19. The tone of affectedly folksy condescension would be expected from any of thousands of Twitter-addicted progressive journalists, but less so from the official account of the United States Food and Drug Administration. Perhaps even more surprising, the tweet linked to a warning advising readers not to take a drug, ivermectin, that has been used in humans for decades and is a standard Covid-19 treatment in much of the world.
The media’s recent reporting on ivermectin is a fitting sequel to their…

Jim Hoft reports at Gateway Pundit Nebraska AG Issues Opinion on Doctors Prescribing HCQ and Ivermectin for COVID Treatment Will Not Face Punishment. Excerpts in italics with my bolds.
The Office of the Attorney General in Nebraska issued an opinion Friday in response to the request of the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services that states there’s no “clear and convincingevidence that a physician who first obtains informed consent and then utilizes Ivermectin or hydroxychloroquine for COVID-19 violates the UCA (Nebraska’s Uniform Credential Act).”
Nebraska Attorney General Doug Peterson together with his Solicitor General and Assistant Attorney General issued their opinion in response to a request by Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services CEO, Dannette Smith. She wanted the AG’s office to examine carefully whether doctors could face legal action or be subject to discipline if they prescribed the meds for COVID treatment.
“Allowing physicians to consider…

For decades Big Pharma co-opted physicians to prescribe their products over those from competitors. The biggest winnings came when a new patent drug had no competition. And of course, when the patents run out, the generics take over the supply. With the Covid pandemonia, a new dynamic arose to protect vaccine profits against anti-viral generic drugs, especially HCQ and Ivermectin. Daniel Horowitz explains at Blaze Media Louisiana AG Jeff Landry warns pharmacies against blocking COVID treatment. Excerpts in italics with my bolds.
“Never have pharmacists been allowed to practice medicine and get between a doctor and his patient,”stated Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry in an interview with TheBlaze. “Most certainly not in middle of a pandemic.”
State attorney general might not be the elected position that comes to mind when assessing the pandemic response, but Landry believes that his counterparts in other states have a vital role to play…

Ivermectin Safety Profile. By David Archibald. We have all heard the stories of ivermectin saving thousands of souls around the world every day, and countless more from debilitation and disfigurement by the dreaded Covid. 757 more wordsIvermectin Safety Profile — The Wentworth Report
CDC is misleading the public by reporting “per 100,000” rather than actual numbers. The chart above makes it look like the Native American population is being ravaged by Covid-19, but is misleading due to small percent of total population.
Per 100,000 is a rate, not an actual number. It is only good for comparing within a fixed population/ group, not between different sized populations/groups. This applies to different racial/ethnic groups, age groups, states, counties. The smaller the total population, the larger the “per 100,000” appears. If a population is 10 and only 1 is affected, that is 10,000 per 100,000. If the population is 1000 and 1 is affected, that is 100 per 100,000. The technique magnifies results in smaller populations and reduces results in larger populations.
Example: January, 2021 data from USAfacts.org reported deaths per 100,000 by ethnic group. Each group has a different size and percent of total population. Deaths per 100,000 is reported so that Native Americans appear to be the most affected by far because the population is relatively small. See table below.
|Ethnic Group||Group Population||Group as Percent of US Pop.||Covid Deaths per 100,000||Number of Covid Deaths||Covid Deaths as percent of total deaths|
By converting the per 100,000 results reported into actual numbers and percentage of the total deaths, the picture is quite different and similar to the percent of US population for each group. The huge disparity has disappeared. Blacks and Native Americans appear to be slightly more affected, while Hispanics and Asian are slightly less affected than their population.
