Just so we're clear.
We're dealing with malignant narcissists. Y'all know that, right?
You know, the ones that suffer from delusions of grandeur?
The ones that will never apologize because they've never considered that their way might be wrong?
Biden, Fauci, and Pelosi do not care about wrecked lives because of their failed COVID policies.
They believe that they're superior to us in every way.
They believe that if they threaten to take away our jobs to make us get the jab, that we'll shut up and fall in line.
They believe that if they pretend long enough that there aren't any early treatment options for COVID but magically produce a pill that's shockingly similar to Ivermectin, we'll swallow it.
They're fancy like that.
Most of us labor under the delusion that we can reason with these people.
Because they do not respect us.
Remember when we were younger, and someone said, "because I said so?" And we complied?
Even if we disagreed, had a different opinion, or knew better, we did what they said?
It was unacceptable then.
It's unacceptable now because the truth and effectiveness of early treatment options, like Ivermectin, are right under our noses.
But, you ask, how did the truth of early treatment options, like Ivermectin, get squashed?
Researcher Andrew Hill's conflict:
Hill had previously authored an analysis of Ivermectin as a treatment for COVID-19 that found the drug overwhelmingly compelling.
On Jan. 6 of 2021, Hill testified enthusiastically before the NIH COVID-19 Treatment Guidelines Panel supporting Ivermectin's use. However, within a month, Hill found himself in what he describes as a "tricky situation." Under pressure from his funding sponsors, Hill then published an unfavorable study. Ironically, he used the same sources as in the original research.
Only the conclusions had changed.
In a remarkable exchange, Hill admitted his manipulated study would likely delay the uptake of Ivermectin in the UK and United States, but said he hoped his doing so would only set the lifesaving drug's acceptance back by about "six weeks," after which he was willing to give his support for its use.
What's genuinely nuts?
“The FDA is working with the post office to hold packages containing Ivermectin. The FDA could better use its resources to, I don’t know, publicly release the docs submitted by Pfizer to license its mandated liability-free V earlier than 75 years from now.”
From the Brownstone Institute:
How did we get here? We knew that we could never eradicate this mutable virus (that has an animal reservoir) with lockdowns and that it would likely become endemic, like other circulating common cold coronaviruses.
[W]e knew an age-risk stratified approach was optimal (focused protection as outlined in the Great Barrington Declaration) and not carte blanche policies, [because] we had evidence of a 1,000-fold differential in risk of death between a child and an older adult. We knew of the potency and success of early ambulatory outpatient treatment in reducing the risk of hospitalization and death in the vulnerable.
It was clear very early on that Task Forces and medical advisors and decision-makers were not reading the evidence, were not up to speed with the science or data, did not understand the evidence, did not 'get' the evidence, and were blinded to the science, often driven by their prejudices, biases, arrogance, and ego. They remain ensconced in sheer academic sloppiness and laziness. It was clear that the response was not a public health one. It was a political one from day one and continues today.
In Virginia, Fauquier Hospital was found in contempt of court in a lawsuit filed on behalf of a COVID-19 patient who was denied Ivermectin and allowed the patient to be treated per family wishes.
Stop the hand wringing concerning Ivermectin.
Or any other early treatment option our betters say does not exist.
It isn't ethical.
Researcher Andrew Hill admitted that lives were lost because he did not tell the truth.
Our FDA is holding back lifesaving treatments like Ivermectin because they can.
All while Pelosi, Fauci, and Biden refuse to admit that their ridiculous restrictions, mandates, and intrusions into our lives do not work.
That's what narcissists do…Ignore truth even though it hurts others.
We can't. But here’s what we can do:
Seek to eliminate obstacles that stand in the way of the sacred, doctor-patient relationship.
Have a plan for access to proven early treatment therapeutics for COVID-19.
Tell the “because I said so” crowd, that they DO NOT get to say so, anymore.
The truth is on our side.
Stay in this fight.
It stops when we unite.
And right now, I see A LOT of united people.
