    Big Pharma uses Big Tobacco’s strategy to defeat Ivermectin

New article in The Desert Review

https://www.thedesertreview.com/opinion/letters_to_editor/big-pharma-uses-big-tobaccos-strategy-to-defeat-ivermectin/article_fc17022e-9ba6-11eb-8c7b-633764c1bf9e.html

Cites Dr Lawrie, refers to Dr Kory and others.

Excerpt:

Merck and the FDA came out against Ivermectin only after the US government contributed $356 million to Merck to develop MK-7110, an anti-COVID drug. This occurred after Merck purchased the rights to MK-7110 for $425 million in a deal announced on December 23, 2020. The chances of this drug receiving approval by the FDA are very high.

The chances of Ivermectin successfully competing against MK-7110, if Ivermectin is also approved, are also high. It is, therefore, logical that a multi-billion dollar industry will use its immense lobbying, media, and advertising power to prevent this. The smoking gun here is that Merck was the original developer of Ivermectin, but now that their old drug is generic and no longer profitable, it is being tossed under the proverbial bus.

Obfuscation and the “offer-to-fund-the-research” through a time-honored and proven strategy of manipulation is once again proving remarkably effective in swaying public opinion.

We have seen this movie before with Big Tobacco.

    Big Pharma uses Big Tobacco’s strategy to defeat Ivermectin

Some other less obvious ways they are rigging the system. After getting my prescription via myfreedoctor.com, much thanks to the awesome PP contributor, I found when I went to pick it up at Rite Aid that I was flabbergasted that the “new” price (I’m guessing) was currently $120 for a small pack of 20 tiny tablets. Now, consider that one dose for my body weight is 6 tablets, and that this is an off patent drug that is basically free in non-Western countries! So obviously I smell a very big pharma-rat here in the US. A week later I got an appointment with my Kaiser primary doctor of whom I had not met because I wasn’t going near a hospital this past year and I had no health issues, and after thinking to move my doctor to a smaller more coinvent location, I spoke with a very kind person on the the Kaiser help line who knew about all of the doctor’s qualifications, and after I explained that I would most like to find a physician who had an openness of mind to alternative treatments, she said emphatically no no!, you don’t want to leave you doctor, he is young and extremely smart, he’s progressive and you won’t be able to get him again if you change! Okay I said, having already started the Ivermectin prophylactic protocol I was game to venture into the bowls of our local Kaiser hospital to meet my new unbelievably smart progressive primary doctor. Okay, I think you already know where this is going. When I mentioned to him that I would not be taking the vaccine he immediately asked why. I said that because it was an experimental gene therapy compound that had yet to be approved by the FDA, at which point he stared at me dumbfounded like I was speaking to him in Greek. I went on to explain how I was taking Ivermectin as recommended by the FLCCC with the mineral supplements, and I also mentioned Dr. Kory who testified before congress. What he said then was shocking…”why would want to trust taking that and not the vaccine instead?” And he went on to further say that Kaiser would not approve a prescription for something that Kaiser did not approve of, so no, he would not give me the prescription. The craziest part was that he is thought of within their own medical circle as being the best and the brightest that Kaiser has to offer. It appears that the system has failed us and we are all now truly on our own. I continue to be amazed that extremely smart people have been so completely hoodwinked.

@Bradford. Maybe your doctor was “the best” at following protocol, not making waves and generally not rocking the boat

@wotthecurtains. That is what was so surprising because within my Kaiser ecosystem he was thought of as being the most progressive, the most intelligent and open-minded. But instead, the need to follow the vaccine agenda in lockstep appears to be an absolute. Going against this prime directive passed down from the highest levels would be paramount to professional suicide, I’m guessing. As Mike Yeadon, a true American hero says: “The eugenicists have got hold of the levers of power”

    Big Pharma uses Big Tobacco’s strategy to defeat Ivermectin

I just had my annual physical, a new young nurse working on her nurse practitioner and working on buying out the clinic.

I toted in the FLCCC handout and was ridiculed and shut down for bringing in something “off of the internet”, it did not really go well! Hey did you know that at 63 I have a 20% chance of dying if I get covid and don’t have the vaccine?

In my interviews with with providers more than 50% are personally waiting for long term safety data and efficacy and I find that pretty encouraging.

Seeking a new health care provider, wish Sand Puppy did that kind of thing and lived closer!

    My experience

My primary care doctor is in private practice with one other doctor.  He is definitely open minded and, in my mind a bit too uncritical of some of the conspiracy theories we have discussed.

I had my physical back in February.  He had heard of ivermectin and had prescribed it a few times for covid.  He was a bit nervous about providing it for prophylaxis, but decided to test the waters and write a prescription for 2 doses.  I’m saving those pills for family members who might be a little cautious about acting equine in their medicine preferences.

That’s sad to hear. Did you point out that she had probably studied from textbooks written by Kory or Marik at some point? It’s not like these are unknown guys trying to make a name for themselves, they’re widely published front-line doctors who have been in the trenches treating covid patients since the beginning.

Maybe print out and hand her the EVMS protocol if you can find it (I don’t know if it’s still on the web), it was basically the same as what is on the FLCCC page now but might carry more weight since it is “from” a major medical center.

Hopefully the Kory et al paper gets published, that might be something that would sway some of the fence-sitters.

    IVM Prescription in Ontario

Another IVM usage data point from Canada:

  • requested an IVM prescription from my doctor today and was refused because it is not part of the “standard of care” here (essentially the same as that in the U.S., i.e. no out-patient treatment).  My impression was that she didn’t know a thing about it as she appeared not to recognize the name of drug when I mentioned it.
  • didn’t press the matter because it seemed pointless to do so.

“My impression was that she didn’t know a thing about it as she appeared not to recognize the name of drug when I mentioned it.”

Wouldn’t it be less disturbing somehow if the doctor had said, “Yeah, another internet miracle cure that doesn’t stand up to scrutiny unfortunately.  Mind you don’t take horse paste”.

But as you saw, there is absolutely ZERO visibility on Ivermectin out there.   Memory Holed is the only fitting allusion here.  Imagine the system that enables a state of affairs like this?

I won’t be surprised in Ivermectin is made illegal everywhere it is being used before this is over.

I won’t be surprised in Ivermectin is made illegal everywhere it is being used before this is over.

Which is exactly why I’ve got a couple of tubes of the horse paste on hand and am thinking about getting more.

Even if it isn’t made illegal, there are stories about price gouging on prescriptions. I don’t know if someone posted it here or I saw it on twitter but someone had managed to get a prescription for ivermectin, possibly from an on-line doctor. But when they went to fill it they found out their insurance wouldn’t cover it and the pharmacy was charging over $100 for the relatively small number of pills (which used to cost a few cents each before covid). So they’ll discourage use by making it too expensive for many people to purchase.

Edit to add – just saw that was posted by someone earlier in this thread (post 2) but have seen similar stories elsewhere.
