The Ivermectin scandal

For 35 years, Ivermectin was hailed as a miracle drug.  It had an incredible impact on millions of people’s lives around the world who suffered from diseases like river blindness, scabies, and elephantiasis, without side effects and at an affordable price.

The scientists who discovered it won the Nobel Prize:


Mountains of data have emerged showing the miraculous effectiveness of Ivermectin in preventing and transmitting Covid. But governments either prohibited or severely restricted its use.  Why?   

This video very recently produced by The Epoch Times answers the question:

This is one of the most disturbing aspects of what has happened in past three years.
When you see CHO’s refer to it as a horse dewormer you know something is being done to deliberately malign a Noble prize winning drug. That should be a clue as to which medical experts should be considered suspect in their advice.

The lockdowns were of uncertain benefit, but known to cause harm.

Ivermectin was also of uncertain benefit, but known to be harmless.

The lockdowns were mandatory. Ivermectin was banned.

Thanks for posting this Rafe.

Medications have always been used off label.
There are only two medications since 1980 that have been outlawed.
Ivermectin and hydroxychloroqine for use in covid.
Both are off patent, cheap and have well established safety profiles.

Governments all around the world suddenly criminalised the prescribing ivermectin and HCQ off label in 2020.
The cited excuse was the need for large randomised double blind clinical trials before allowing their use. This is in stark contrast to the experimental mRNA treatments, and all the new patented covid medications, that are being trialled in real time on a majority of the world’s population, without any such studies.

The cognitive dissonance on criminalising the prescription of a safe medication versus mandating expensive unproven treatments, has been lost in the propaganda and censorship from governments, all the media and pharmaceutical companies.

Most people seem to think that what has happened in the past three years is just keystone cops type bungling on the part of clueless governments and public health pundits. Criminalisation of the use of ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine, and no other drugs for any other purpose, is circumstantial evidence of malicious intent.

Pfizer has raked in $20b from paxlovid, which has the same mechanism of action as ivermectin.

The banning of Ivermectin to be used as early treatment for Covid should be declared a crime. The Australian medical authorities should be required by law to answer why they took the this dangerous step. Doctors were threatened with legal action if they prescribed what many of knew was effective, why???? Was it money, control or Agenda 21 ? Were we subjected to a deadly medical attack now showing up as an increased mortality rate of 18% in Australia. No one has the decency or courage to question this disgrace that is now plainly seen all over the world with this absurd title of Sudden Death Syndrome. Not one member of MSM is investigating this to my knowledge.

As to why…usually it comes ’round to money.

This was a post I made in open thread 4 days ago.

“I am on Twitter but only for reading. Last night got into incredibly interesting threads on Dr Pierre Kory”s Twitter feed with links into his Substack articles. He is well known for his early use of Ivermectin for Covid and has written a book about the saga. He was actually the first US Dr I read about over 2 years ago when saw him saying medicine had been politicised.
He mentions a lawyer who brought many legal cases against hospitals for the right of ICU patients to be administered IVM. Many fought and delayed as much as they could. One particular hospital (Rochester) shows how successful he was. In 6 cases he won the first 3 but lost the last 3. In the cases where he won the patients were able to use IVM. They lived but in the three he lost the patients died.

In August 2021 there was a sudden coordinated campaign to demonise IVM as a horse dewormer despite it already being approved by FDA for decades and winning Nobel prize. The media company for the CDC, Pfizer and Moderna is the same. This coincided with a sharp increase in prescriptions of IVM. It was clear this was going to impact vaccine sales. It was also around the time virals Molnuprivir and Paxlovid were being first promoted.

He mentions the Japanese inventor of IVM approaching Merck early 2020 to ask to do research on IVM and Covid. Not only rejected but Merck went out of its way to say should not be used. One of the links is to a Dr colleague of inventor going off about the vaccine during a meeting with health officials.
He goes into what happened with UK Dr Andrew Hill who initially was very enthusiastic about IVM. He believes Hill was tasked to look into existing alternative treatments with a view to sabotaging them. Hill may not have originally known that plan but later went along with it. Hill actually initially was so keen he actually told African countries to be ready to stock up on IVM. Then came his despicable turn around, well covered in a video by Tess Lawrie, which affected the whole outcome of the pandemic.
He mentions how he and Dr Paul Marik lost their jobs for basically saving lives with IVM .
An incredible story of how big pharma money has warped the medical world and treatments. He deliberately refers to the FDA as the PFDA.

In one post he shows a sudden massive increase in funding, 2020, to the retirement fund of Peadiatricians with the implication bought by pharma.
In FEB 2022 he mentions Homeland Security referring to Dr’s who criticise the Government Covid policies as domestic terrorists. Hmm, that rings a bell based on recent police comments in Qld.
Follow the money when looking at the experts pushing the vaccines”.

Then there was the saga of when Joe Rogan got Covid and said he used IVM amongst other things. The media went nuts with the horse dewormer stories. His interview with Dr Sanjay Gupta of CNN about this is very informative and one of Joe’s best (can be found on Youtube or Spotify). Very soon after that was when TGA sent a letter to all Dr’s covering why IVM should not be used for Covid. Dr John Campbell did 20 minutes on the letter and why it was BS. First reason given was if people knew IVM was available might not take the vax. Other was suggesting might not take it properly but that was also BS as was discussing with Dr’s who would know how to prescribe. Then they said might not be enough for normal usage in Oz which I understand is about 20,000 people per year. Campbell pointed out easily obtainable and very cheap to get from India.

I know a Dr who got his own supply from overseas for his family and I believe this was fairly common.

Meanwhile the media paid no attention except to follow the propaganda campaign against it.

It should be remembered there was no treatment for Covid early on and IVM would certainly not hard patients.

Medical experts lied and people died.

When you see CHO’s refer to it as a horse dewormer you know something is being done to deliberately malign a Noble prize winning drug.

I brought my ivermectin from Horseland because the CHO scum prevented me from getting it elsewhere.

The TGA and Health Bureaucracies are full of proto Mengele’s. What else do you call people why deny safe and effective treatments whilst pushing experimental ones?

I got CV-19 on a cruise early December 2022. Two-and-a-half days of fever, mild delirium, aches and pains and incredible fatigue (like, sleeping for 20 hours a day). The onboard doctor gave me molnupiravir, 8 tablets a day. After 4 days I tested negative and continued to do so. For all intents and purposes, ALL symptoms were gone.

However, I believe CV-19 may have left a legacy. I now become fatigued at apparently random times. “Nanny naps”, once a luxury, are now almost a daily necessity. I’ve even been forced to stop the car when driving and get out and walk/have a coffee to wake up. I’ll drift off while on the computer; literally nodded off on the toilet one time. It’s scary.

That video was well worth watching.
Thanks Rafe.

Well said.

Also worth remembering that the Together trial which was used to discredit IVM was sponsored by SBF of FTX. US$12m I recall.

Who was behind that sponsorship would be interesting to know.

Thank you, I have had similar experiences after vaccination.
Scares the daylights out of me.
I had two goes of the one with the long name, shit, I even forget it’s name.
My daughter is 40yo and has had some weird health issues after her second bout of wuflu. Tests cannot pin down the cause.
I have my own thoughts.

Utter medical disgraceful behaviour by so called doctors.

  1. I gave it up aged 80 after a not very long or difficult trip on an Icelandic pony. They have…

  2. Appalling to see my old Alma Mater brought down to such a low. Mark Scott was a disastrous apoointment.

  3. They are still top notch in medical research and funding via their Medical Faculty. Their Arts Faculty is a disgrace…

  4. Postcard from Tunis   Here in Tunisia using credit cards is difficult. The taxis all use cash only. Uber is…

Oh, you think that, do you? Care to put it on record?x
