From local news to USA Today, mainstream media drags Kenai mayor for Ivermectin remark, but NIH scientific papers say it’s a ‘wonder drug’ with expanding uses

The mainstream media has spoken, and has declared Kenai Borough Mayor’s comments about the drug Ivermectin to be outrageous, and further declared that the drug has been debunked as a treatment for Covid-19.

The media inferred that Mayor Charlie Pierce was encouraging people to use the tried-and-true parasite medication Ivermectin, when what he said was to talk to your doctor. In an interview with Must Read Alaska in early August, he called for medical freedom, and for doctors to be able to use medicines they feel are effective against Covid-19. He also advised people to at least do their research.

Must Read Alaska did do some of their own research. research.

The federal National Institutes of Health, in a published article about Ivermectin in an article years before Covid-19 was the disease in question, called the drug a “wonder drug” for treating parasites in humans.

“Discovered in the late-1970s, the pioneering drug ivermectin, a dihydro derivative of avermectin–originating solely from a single microorganism isolated at the Kitasato Institute, Tokyo, Japan from Japanese soil–has had an immeasurably beneficial impact in improving the lives and welfare of billions of people throughout the world. Originally introduced as a veterinary drug, it kills a wide range of internal and external parasites in commercial livestock and companion animals. It was quickly discovered to be ideal in combating two of the world’s most devastating and disfiguring diseases which have plagued the world’s poor throughout the tropics for centuries. It is now being used free-of-charge as the sole tool in campaigns to eliminate both diseases globally. It has also been used to successfully overcome several other human diseases and new uses for it are continually being found. This paper looks in depth at the events surrounding ivermectin’s passage from being a huge success in Animal Health into its widespread use in humans, a development which has led many to describe it as a “wonder” drug,” NIH wrote in 2011.

In 2008, when Ivermectin was just 25 years old, the NIH published a paper that posited how beneficial the drug has been, and how human uses are expanding.

“Ivermectin is a drug that many people will never have heard of. Yet thousands of villagers of all ages in communities scattered throughout the remotest parts of Africa and Latin America know its name, and some experts regard it as one of the greatest health interventions of the past 50 years. Ivermectin was brought to the commercial market place for multi-purpose use in animal health in 1981. Six years later it was registered for human use. This remarkable compound has improved the lives and productivity of billions of humans, livestock and pets around the globe, and promises to help consign to the history books two devastating and disfiguring diseases that have plagued people throughout the tropics for generations–while new uses for it are continually being found,” NIH wrote.

But in the Associated Press story that ran in USA Today, the mainstream media says Pierce “has promoted a debunked treatment for COVID-19 that is intended more for farm animals.”

That doesn’t sound like a good idea to the general public.

“Kenai Peninsula Borough Mayor Charlie Pierce has publicly backed the use of ivermectin, an anti-parasitic deworming drug, the Peninsula Clarion reported Wednesday,” the Associated Press reported.

The story went on to say that livestock supply stores in the borough have received numerous inquiries about the drug in the recent weeks.

“Pierce has twice defended use of the drug, first at last week’s borough meeting and on Monday during a radio show on KSRM,” the mainstream media reported.

“What I’m asking for is that the … world view of the various treatments that are being researched and looked at outside of and including vaccinations be looked at from a more open perspective,” Pierce said during the show. “Let the doctors experiment with perhaps some things that haven’t been signed off by the Food and Drug Administration.”

In an interview on Sunday, Pierce explained the world needs more than vaccines — it needs treatments because it’s clear that the Covid-19 virus is not going away.

“I don’t think the vaccines are 100 percent. There are some who can’t have the vaccine and some who won’t have it, and so I think we need treatments,” he said.

He also said that big pharmaceutical companies are making so much money off of vaccines that they appear to have no interest in treatments.

“Doctors are turning people way until they have ‘blue lip syndrome,’ (indicating cyanosis, or low blood oxygen), telling them to come back. I quoted the FrontlineMDS.com site, where you can seek a doctor for treatment. There is a group of doctors using Ivermectin, hydroxychoroquine, and Z-Paks (an antibiotic)” he said. There are other preventative and nutraceuticals like Zinc, Vitamin C, D, and Quercetin.”

Pierce takes exception to how he was characterized, but says he is not surprised. “No, I’ve never referenced any animal treatments, it was misleading and took my comments out of context, but that’s what they do. They try to deflect and try to take you away from focusing on what might work, and apply a bit of fear that you could hurt yourself. Again, I’ve never ever encouraged anybody to go on your own” with the medication, he said.

The NIH statement earlier this year said the jury is out on Ivermectin: “As such, the Panel has determined that there are insufficient data to recommend either for or against the use of ivermectin for the treatment of COVID-19.

“Since the last revision of the Ivermectin section of the Guidelines, results from several randomized clinical trials and retrospective cohort studies of ivermectin use in patients with COVID-19 have been published in peer-reviewed journals or made available as non-peer-reviewed manuscripts. Updates to the Ivermectin section that are underway will include discussion of these studies. Because many of these studies had significant methodological limitations and incomplete information, the Panel cannot draw definitive conclusions about the clinical efficacy of ivermectin for the treatment of COVID-19,” NIH said.

“results from adequately powered, well-designed, and well-conducted clinical trials are needed to provide further guidance on the role of ivermectin in the treatment of COVID-19.” 

National Institutes of health

“Perhaps with this change, patients won’t need a court order to get a lifesaving drug,” stated American Association of Physicians and Surgeons executive director Jane Orient, M.D.

She described a patient in Buffalo, N.Y. who was dying on a ventilator, and was reported to have been greatly improved once she started Ivermectin, at the advice of her family and emergency doctors. “But doctors refused to allow further doses when her condition declined. State Supreme Court Judge Henry A. Nowak ordered the drug to be re-started, and the patient again improved,” Dr. Orient said.

Mayor Pierce is not backing down.

“Japan is using it. Africa is using it. India is using it, and it appears to be preventing hundreds of thousands of cases from becoming cases,” Pierce said. “Here’s the bottom line, I don’t care about the pharmaceutical companies’ stock prices. I care about the people. I have friends who died just last week, and I wish we could have gotten to them sooner.”

Latest comments

  • The Mayor has my support. Funny how the main stream media freaks out when you are over the target!

  • The fact that ivermectin is very effective against parasites goes a long way, all by itself, to explain the hysterical opposition to it by those in government and the corporate media.

    • Good one, Jefferson.

    • Ivermectin, truth, work boots and morality = Democratic kryptonite.

  • You know what else is a miracle drug, exercise. Maybe Charlie should promote that.

    • Yeah, this is the one Fauci should, but doesn’t have the balls to touch on. If you’re terribly fat and unhealthy, and therefore likely to die from the CCP Virus, don’t worry, we have a 95% effective jab/shot for you.
      .
      But you still get sick after receiving the jab/shot, and have made zero effort to correct your poor lifestyle choices. Then it must be the fault of someone else. #maskthehealthy #quarantinethefit
      .
      We cater to the lowest common denominator, once again. #3masks3shots

      • I believe “Leo Americus” was taking a jab at Pierce… another lowest common denominator, however.

  • I got Covid and used ivermectin to reduce the symptoms. Worked great. Then a friend said, “hey it’s not FDA approved for covid.” Oh, neither is the vaccine, I replied. Ivermectin worked for me. It had no side affects. Unfortunately, the big pharma companies don’t make any money on it, so it doesn’t get touted. Let’s get over it, people, and use your smarts.

    If you want to do a little research, see this: https: // www . hsgac.senate.gov/imo/media/doc/Testimony-Kory-2020-12-08.pdf

    • There is plenty of research on ivermectin and its success has been known since the beginning of COVID. But you hit the nail on the head-there is no money in it for big pharma.

    • Pfizer vaccine for COVID-19 was officially authorized by the FDA on August 23, 2021.

      Ivermectin works for parasitic diseases but nothing has been proven in terms of its efficacy for viruses.

      Let me get this straight—you reject vaccines that have been administered to millions of people with a very low incidence of side effects.

      However, you are gung-ho on using a drug in a totally experimental and completely unproven manner.
      Crazy…

      Does your doctor know about your experiments??

      PS:
      Caleb Wallace, Texan, took a combination of vitamin C, zinc and Ivermectin but died of COVID anyway.

      • 1. There are lots of holes in that ‘authorization’. Read the last line of the package insert after August 23, where Pfizer itself still refers to use as authorized by EUA. And many people are dying and disabled by the shots.
        2. If there is a question of ivermectin effectiveness, why are the FDA and WHO blocking trials? It is a proven, safe, inexpensive medication, vs. expensive experimental big pharma drugs. But they block trials and banish anyone who speaks in favor of ivermectin. Why? Oh, follow the money (directly to Fauci, his wife, big pharma, and many others in positions of power).
        My body my choice. I, and my family, endured COVID. We don’t need an experimental DNA injection with unknown consequences.

      • You have not been doing any research into “very low incidence of side effects.” Hello? Over 13,000 have died from the shots, and over 600,000 have had side effects, which include paralysis, stroke, seizures, thrombosis, and so on. These stats are on the very ‘holy CDC’ website for reporting side effects — which only 1% to 10% of people actually report. The shots have poison in them, and they are killing people. AND your “Approved” Pfizer shot — the one that is approved is not available yet. The current Pfizer shot is still just EUA. And P.S., we will never know what actually is the truth behind Mr. Wallace’s passing because the news won’t tell the truth.

      • Catherine, I’m sorry you are so misinformed but you really need to broaden your research horizons. There is so much the MSM isn’t reporting on the vaccines and apparently you are buying it hook, line and sinker. Check out the VAERS.gov website that reports adverse reactions to the vaccines. The vaccines have now killed more people and or caused catastrophic health problems than all typical vaccines combined. Then ask yourself why the MSM doesn’t report what the people and families are reporting that the vaccines is actually causing. The benefits of using Ivermectin, HCQ and Regeneron (which Florida is using very effectively) are now well documented and doctors that care about their patients instead of getting a bonus from Big Pharma are raving about the results. Stop killing people by withholding these life saving drugs! Doctors that do so are going to be caught up in the large class action lawsuits that have already begun. The doctors pushing harmful and experimental vaccines on people are not giving informed consent. There are alternatives!

      • Please notice… it has been approved to change the name from Pfizer, but the new name will still be continue to be available under EUA.
        .
        “Today, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the first COVID-19 vaccine. The vaccine has been known as the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine, and will now be marketed as Comirnaty (koe-mir’-na-tee), for the prevention of COVID-19 disease in individuals 16 years of age and older. The vaccine also continues to be available under emergency use authorization (EUA), including for individuals 12 through 15 years of age and for the administration of a third dose in certain immunocompromised individuals.

      • On top of that according to the FDA this is 91% effective…
        Yet those without the jab of survival rate
        .
        0-19 yrs 99.997%
        20-49 yrs 99.98%
        50-69 yrs 99.5%
        70+ 94.6%

        STILL above the FDA’s ratings of these bioweapon shots that claim to be so effective! Riiiiiiigghhhhttt.

        • You don’t really understand the term apples and oranges, do you?

          • You dont really understand the term “Ovis aries” or “Ammotragus” or “balans”…do you?

          • Censored,
            I have to be honest, I did not know those were terms…I doubt anyone besides yourself did. The first two were about sheep and the last one looks like it’s about skin care or seltzer water. I suppose it makes sense that you of all people would know that those terms are about sheep and seltzer water. Thanks for informing me about what those terms mean, even though you didn’t really inform me so much as just say them.

          • S-O,
            Nice try. Peace I leave with ya!

          • @Steve-O,
            Take off the Velcro gloves, searching the internet will be easier…

    • Thanks Eugene, I have been screaming about this for months including the use of HCQ and Regeneron. I just recently sent an e-mail to the Governors Office asking him why Alaska Hospitals are not stockpiling and using these wonder drugs. All I hear is complaining that our hospitals are full and over worked. Where is the leadership Governor? The data is there as well as the clinical tests. Stop listening to the bureaucrats that are protecting Big Pharma and start listening to the doctors that have used these drugs to great effect. https://americasfrontlinedoctors.org/.

  • Thank goodness for the few strong leaders like Charlie! He has my full support.

    • I really appreciate when MSM goes into panic mode. They reveal their hand!

  • If the mainstream media is against the use of ivermectin, then I’m all for it! Leftists and their lapdog media have done their utmost to suppress information regarding the efficacy of ivermectin for treating covid, but the truth is available for those who seek it.

    One has to wonder why the leftist government wants to force an experimental and sometimes deadly or life altering substance on us. What is their end game? And what rational person submits their body to experimental treatments?

  • Charlie must be recognized as a growing threat for the press to go after him so specifically. Wonder what they see in his potential to so dramatically attempt to cut him down. After all he’s just a mayor on the Kenai peninsula, in Alaska… Not exactly the mayor of New York. Fascinating!!

  • “This paper looks in depth at the events surrounding ivermectin’s passage from being a huge success in Animal Health into its widespread use in humans, a development which has led many to describe it as a “wonder” drug,” NIH wrote in 2011.”- Why would our government lie to us? Oh, Merck owns the patent.

  • Hmm, maybe if docs prescribed Ivermectin for their patients , there would not be a need for people to seek out the horse paste version of this drug.
    I used Ivermectin for Covid when my whole family had it in April this year. We all survived and had no ill effects from the drug. I keep some on hand for future use.

    Thank you Mayor Pierce for being brave enough to speak up and start the conversation about treatment versus fear, hysteria and vaccines. We need the whole state to get on board the treatment wagon.
    Front Line Critical Care Alliance and the Truth for Health foundation are two sites publishing protocols which can be followed so people don’t need to live in fear. Our state needs to start treating because vaccines are failing and Covid is not going away anytime soon.

  • We eliminated small pox, measles, polio, rubella etc. with vaccines.

    • Apples and oranges. Those that you mention are more stable viruses than Corona-which is why there has not been a vaccine for the common cold. And before those vaccines finally became mainstream there were many failures, just like the current vaccines.
      And, growing evidence indicates that the rapid mutations of Corona virus may cause the variants in direct response to vaccination. Absorb that: the virus mutates to adapt to infect the vaccinated, thus requiring continuing adaptations to the vaccine. Joe Biden now says that people need revaccinated every 5 months to gain the marginal protection provided. Boon to Pfizer et. al. forever.

      • Wait, didn’t you just say this wasn’t a vaccine? You seem confused…

    • After passing the test of time, properly developed, and after extensive testing vs. the agent they targeted.
      .
      They were not created and promoted by an individual for whom there was a financial motive.

      • Nor were all those successful historical vaccines developed in the space of less than one year. Remember one of the original polio vaccines that actually GAVE polio to many of the recipients?
        There is no such thing as a “safe and effective” vaccine that was rushed to market in less than a year.

    • Yes but there are no effective vaccines for virus’s that infect both humans and animals…thus we still do Not have the technology to eliminate flu colds Covid etc…. These so called vaccines (MRNA experimental treatments) DO not eliminate Covid they also do not stop the spread of Covid and do not stop infection with Covid…the vaccines you mentioned above DID work…these don’t…Isreal the most vaccinated country in the world is experiencing the worst outbreak as is other highly vaccinated countries….countries that used the ivermectin have experienced downturn in the disease

  • Search for: “Alex Berenson at Substack”
    .
    Alex has been the best source lately for proper science based COVID reporting, he was a staffer on The NY Times for over a decade, left to do his own writing, and has been pilloried for going against the “mainstream grain” on all things COVID. He was banned from Twitter for reporting facts out of Israel, namely the effectiveness of Natural Immunity and therapeutics like mentioned in this article.

  • From Uttar Pradesh , a State in India to Africa to Japan and hundreds of Doctors here in the U.S. there is a wide body of evidence suggesting that Ivermectin is effective in treating Covid. I read about a study where the case was made that Ivermectin works well as a prophylactic when taken in advance of exposure to the virus, this explains the African success where folks take the drug on a regular basis to combat parasites.

    Don’t you think it’s weird that the Establishment pushes an Experimental injection which has not proven to be effective and has to date killed tens of thousands while at the same time telling you not to take a drug which appears to be effective in combatting this Virus? I mean what is the downside to Ivermectin? What, you don’t get worms?

  • Big pharma can’t get emergency use authorization on vaccines if there is known drug treatments to help treat a disease; therefore, they used media censorship and intimidation of medical professionals to suppress drugs that could have prevented hospitalizations. The drug companies needed this experimental mRNA to hit human clinical trails, since it was never able to do so in the clinical lab setting because mRNA killed 100% of all lab rats in all past lab trails; so they suppressed all available treatment options like Ivermectin, Hydroxychloroquine, Budesonide, ect to allow human injections of mRNA. They let countless of Americans die in hospitals on ventilators by suppressing these drugs. And now they are injecting the population with deadly mRNA injections that don’t even work to prevent Covid and are known to cause variants. 100% of all lab rats and ferrets died within 12 months of injections in ALL clinical lab settings after being injected with mRNA that is why it could never make it to human trails. 12 months in rat years equals to about 30 human years. So we are looking at severe depopulation over the course of the next decade by those who ignorantly chose to be injected. We are already seeing these shots killing and harming people as of date, but this is only the tip of the ice berg. All these jabbed lab rats love to scream science as they ignore all the real data and science. It is so sad. So many will die and already have. When will these criminals be held accountable? And for the record the FDA has had to recall so many drugs over the years that have been approved after they have killed and damaged people, so trusting them is pointless. WAKE UP AMERICA BIG PHARMA IS FOR PROFIT NOT HEALTH! THEY DON’T CARE ABOUT YOU! AND THEY HAVE COMPLETE IMMUNTIY FROM DAMAGES IN REGARDS TO THESE SHOTS!

    • And the power establishment will blame any and all deaths directly due to having received the (non-)vaccines on endless “variants” and “the murderous unvaccinated”, when it will in fact almost certainly be due to antibody dependent enhancement (ADE) combined with subsequent infection or re-infection by the original virus.

      • Yep! This is an eugenic Orwellian nightmare straight out of 1930’s Germany. Nothing more than progressive medical fascism. Welcome to the Fourth Reich. These progressive democrats are nothing more than cult members of a Nazi party of a eugenics death cult, either by choice or willful ignorance. It is sad and frightening at the same time. I am floored to see so many fall for such anti science, anti human rhetoric and propaganda. But at the same time most of these progressives who lined up for the shots won’t be alive in the coming years to push their Nazi like ideologies on the well informed, educated, freedom loving masses. But it is still so sad. I don’t like to see people sick, dying, and full of deception and fear. I pray the powers to be that have created and promoted this Covidian death cult are brought to justice and that the truth prevails sooner than later.

  • If the vax is not a silver bullet against the virus (It’s not, which is why they are now thinking of demanding an endless series of booster shots), somewhere along the line, we’re gonna have to learn how to live with it. This includes therapeutics. Ivermectin is one of those. There are others. It will also include things like zinc, vitamin D, exercise, getting out of doors, and weight loss. Darned shame government has turned into a hectoring nanny rather than a source of information. Cheers –

  • Fear is a powerful motivator.
    .
    I understand the reluctance on a new vaccine, especially a newly developed type of vaccine. I understand trying new and alternative medications when the tried and true medications do not work…that’s kind of what the covid vaccines are.
    .
    I don’t understand those who are opposed to the new covid vaccines when we have hundreds of millions if not billions of documented vaccinated across the globe purchasing an antiparasitic medication for animals from the feed store and medicating themselves without a doctors direction especially when that medication has little covid related research and what there is shows questionable results.
    .
    Fear is indeed a powerful motivator.

    • 1. This is not a vaccine. It is an untested experimental genetic manipulation from which big pharma reaps HUGE record profits with zero liability when it goes wrong. What could happen?
      2. Ivermectin is a tried and true drug with a long history of safety in people and animals. The only reason to get it at the feed store is because big pharma is blocking access to human dosing.
      Time will tell, and you will likely be proven to be full of BS.

    • Ignorance can be even more destructive than fear.
      For example, the tried and true medications that the government is stopping doctors from using include ivermectin…obviously not the formulations intended for veterinary use or the others intended for topical use in humans but the approved for use in humans oral medications that have been prescribed nearly 4 billion times around the world.
      Scientists, including medical research scientists, often discover new uses for existing drugs or technologies.
      It often happens by accident or chance.
      They even have a word for it…serendipity.
      Of course when the government puts all its bets on one thing, like an untested experimental mRNA drug, and actively works to stop any exploration of other options serendipity gets shoved to one side and trampled.
      Only a truly ignorant person thoughtlessly accepts what he or she is told without considering contradictory information…information like the low rates of infection, hospitalization and death in African countries where ivermectin is routinely used to control parasitic infection.
      Maybe serendipity has been at work and we’ve discovered that a tried and true medication that has been around for 40 plus years and that has been used internally by humans billions of times for a completely different purpose is the silver bullet for Covid.
      Thankfully there are many open minded people out there exploring this, even in the face of people like Steve-o here who accept whatever the last authority figure has told him and who then goes on to do the dirty work of the government and vested interests behind the suppression of alternative treatments that might save countless lives but won’t lead to extraordinary profits for drug companies.
      Mask up, Stevie, and keep your distance from the other walking disease vectors while you wait in line like cattle to get your booster shot of something you don’t understand but that doesn’t keep you from getting or transmitting the dreaded 0.01% fatal Covid.
      Remember, it’s people like you who are helping us understand and perfect the still untested and unsuccessful mRNA gene therapy.
      Your sacrifice might actually lead to a medical breakthrough some day.
      Thanks buddy!

      • Wow, wipe the fear from your eyes and read what I wrote again.

        • Ok…done…your comment still seems ignorant and obviously you lack the reading comprehension skills to understand my comment. Understandable as you’re a brainwashed liberal who gets his information straight from those who lie to you regularly. You’ll never wake up.

          • Hahahaha. Oh no, name calling when you get challenged, you really got me there. Read what I wrote because your first response shows you did not and your second response shows you still do not understand what I wrote…keep trying you might figure it out yet.
            .
            I understand your post, you are simply striking out at that which you do not understand because it challenges the talking points you repeat so frequently.

    • Steve-O, those of us who can clearly see all the misinformation, statistical misrepresentations, half-truths and outright LIES being promulgated by the political establishment and their corporate media flying monkeys on this topic, along with their incessant drumbeat of fearmongering and their hysterical censorship campaign against anyone and anything that questions or challenges the official narratives on the Wuhan Virus, are not “hesitant” to receive the so-called “vaccines”, we are mostly DETERMINED to NEVER be injected by this experimental and quite possibly fatal mRNA treatment! STOP calling us “hesitant” already — that is just another part of the propaganda campaign against all those who are not servile, compliant and unthinking sheep.

      • Ohhhh the “quite possibly fatal mRNA treatment” is that what the fear mongers have resorted to now, the “quite possibly fatal mRNA treatment”?
        .
        I get it, you don’t want and will never get the vaccine. Good for you for having done your research on the issue. Are you also one of the ignorant folks who is swallowing Ivermectin manufactured by bigpharma bros sold at the feed store design as an anti-parasitic for animals to protect you against covid instead of taking the vaccine against covid by the bigpharma bros drugs sold at the pharmacy?

    • Steve-O, yes fear is used to push this non Vaccine Treatment. Oh, BTW, it, the Jab is not effective either. It cannot work. It’s not supposed to work. Honestly Steve-O… Start swallowing the Kool-Aid and do some critical Thinking…

      • You know there are multiple vaccines using different vaccine technology, right? Are they all not vaccines and are they all not effective?
        .
        As far as “Start swallowing the Kool-Aid”, why would I do that when it seems like you’ve swallowed enough. I prefer to think for myself and critical thinking is a part of that, it would be great if more could do it yourself included…no Kool-aid needed.

  • Funny how big pharma and the medical alphabet soup health organizations present information and directives regarding your health choices. At a glance it appears that your health is secondary to their profit and power position. Tell me I am wrong. I want to be wrong but the evidence is contrary to their narrative. We see a resurgence of Covid in countries where there is nearly universal “Jabbing”, and yet in places where this Ivermectin has been employed, like Uttar Pradesh, it appears that Covid has packed up and left the building. B.T.W. you can purchase Ivermectin for human consumption. It’s not only an animal de-wormer. Oh, and it’s not only in use in Japan, many Doctors here in the U.S. have prescribed it in treating their patients afflicted with the Wuhan Flu. Thank God for the Mayor and his speaking out about this issue! Long live Free Speech and Liberty!

  • lol, self preservation?? Politicians, mainstream media, & progressives up in arms about a drug that eliminates parasites….

  • In a just society those health officials who censored & blocked early intervention with inexpensive, effective & safe Covid drug therapies such as Ivermectin & Hydroxychloroquine, would be in prison for a long, long time. What kind of health advocate tells a Covid positive person to go home, don’t treat your symptoms, but go to the ER when your lips turn blue! Criminal & sociopathic behavior!

  • The media used to be the fourth estate. Now we need a balance against the media as they have run amuck.

  • I agree it is great to have a few strong leaders that have taken a stand. It is time for everyone to take a stand. Fauci’s recent announcement that it is a “Good Idea” to mandate COVID-19 vaccines for school children is crimes against humanity. It is time for the truth to be shouted from the roof tops. Prove the efficacy and safety. Release the contents so people can have informed consent. Do your research – find out why is graphene oxide in the jabs? Find out why fetal cells are in the jabs? Did you know between Dec. 14. 2020 and Aug. 20, 2021 there have been 13,627 deaths from the jabs reported to VAERS, which is a passive reporting system and more than like only collects 1-2% of actual data. There were also 84, 466 serious injuries and 623,343 serious adverse events. Go to the site and look at the list of adverse events. Heart damage, strokes, hearing and vision loss and the list goes on and on. FDA’s recent approval of Comirnaty is a sham to trick people into thinking the jabs are safe and Comirnaty isn’t even available and won’t be available until the safety trials are completed. Then look at the reporting in Europe which is even worse. Don’t be fooled. Don’t believe me do your own research. Demand the truth!!! No more lies. Dunleavy needs to stand tall and tell the truth to all Alaskans. No more weasel hiding behind other lying corrupt politicians and fake science. I am sick of watching my friends and family die from the jabs, because they were fooled into thinking it was the right thing to do. If the CEO of Pfizer didn’t take the jab, what does that tell you? If doctors that have done the research, American Frontline Doctors, are being censored what does that tell you? If the information on damage from wearing masks is being censored, what does that tell you? NO MORE LIES!

    • CDC states :
      Reports of adverse events to VAERS following vaccination, including deaths, do not mean that a vaccine caused a health problem.

      VAERS disclaimer states :
      VAERS welcomes reports submitted by health providers or the public. However, VAERS warns that data found on their site « may contain information that is incomplete, inaccurate, coincidental or unverifiable. »

      Such great concern about what you are putting into your body leads me to ask:

      Have you, your family members or your friends ever gotten any tattoos? If so, are you worried about the short/long-term effects of the ingredients of the ink injected into your body?

      Do you insist on purchasing and taking solely name-brand medications or do you accept generic medications? Do you know what the active ingredients are and where they are produced?

      The COVID-19 vaccines do not offer total immunity nor a guarantee that you will never get the virus. These vaccines simply protect you from life-threatening forms which lead to death or ending up on a ventilator with subsequent serious health issues.

      Accepting vaccinations means respect for hospitals, allowing them to deal with other diseases such as cancer. Also, vaccinations show respect for hospital staff who are exhausted and physically/emotionally drained.

      So far, 640,000 deaths in the US. How about if we stop there? Get vaccinated.

  • Interesting how the left oppose treatments where there is no profit to be made.

    • If you buy ANY drug or medication, either OTC or via prescription, a pharmaceutical or chemical firm makes money.
      That’s the American way of life, whether you are Republican OR Democrat.

  • My family doc prescribes Ivermectin for his Covid patients, said he has had great success.

  • The fact that therapies for prevention and treatment of SARS-CoV-2 are not being put forth my the medical community should be extemely telling about the true intent of the continual call for vaccination. The two disfiguring diseases it is used to combat are Onchocerciasis, ( River blindness) and Lymphatic filariasis (elephantiasis). Amazing what you can learn by reading. Too bad too few people do it anymore.

  • Ivermectin is probably a great therapeutic for treating Covid patients.
    Real world evidence from Africa, India and other nations not firmly in the iron grip of the FDA, the big pharmaceutical companies or the global health agencies indicate that ivermectin is effective against Covid.
    The fact that we’re being told that the mRNA gene therapy drugs that were rushed to market without proper study are the only way we can be saved while we’re simultaneously denied the opportunity to get alternative treatments (even though high profile figures like Trump did) is highly suspicious.
    So ivermectin isn’t approved by the FDA for the treatment of Covid…so what?
    This is the same FDA that put us all at risk by granting EUA to an experimental mRNA therapy drug that has no studies on potential long term, or even medium term, risks.
    This is the same FDA that watched several instances of suckers who wanted to promote the jab by getting it live on TV who passed out cold right after getting their shots.
    This is the same FDA that now warns us of dire consequences if we use ivermectin by pointing to the increased number of people reporting adverse reactions to ivermectin through poison control but who fails to give us the breakdown between instances where people are improperly using ivermectin containing products meant for animals or external use only from instances where people are properly using ivermectin.
    Then we’ve got the VAERS numbers being changed by the government to hide the number of adverse reactions these mRNA wonder drugs are causing.
    Then we’ve got the government admitting that their testing protocols are extremely flawed and vastly over reporting the number of cases.
    Then we’ve got the perverse incentives created by the government that financially rewards hospitals who report higher Covid numbers.
    The federal government, the FDA, the CDC, the World Health Organization, all the major global health players are all in lockstep to force us to get a continuing series of shots of an experimental drug that doesn’t prevent us from getting or spreading Covid while they inhibit or prohibit us from accessing other treatments…even those that have been successfully used by high profile people to help them survive infection.
    Where do these governmental agencies get the right to tell us that we cannot work with our doctors to determine what treatment options we think will work for us?
    That’s how masters treat their slaves…that’s how the government treats us.
    We’re being lied to, manipulated and treated like property by our own government.
    At best we’re being treated like children who aren’t intelligent enough to weigh the risks associated with Covid itself and the various treatment options available to decide what is best for us.
    Admittedly, it is difficult to correctly assess the risks when the government hides the truth from us.
    The only thing we can be certain of is that we cannot trust anything the government is telling us because they’re either incompetent, knowingly lying or, most likely, both.

  • Congratulations to Mayor Pierce in speaking out about the value of therapeutics in treating the Wuhan virus!

    There are many papers out there documenting the safe use and effectiveness of their use. And I’m even more impressed that Mayor Pierce did not wither when the predictable lashing out by the main stream media against their ‘settled’ narrative. Pharmaceutical companies are protecting their huge cash cow of ‘vaccines’. All the while the most ‘vaccinated’ country in the world, Israel, has disturbing data indicating the effectiveness of the vaccines are significantly diminishing and increasing health risks.

    We live in times when speaking out against “settled science” and established narratives is dangerous. Mayor Pierce is saying what needs to be said and at a time when it is brave to say it.

  • When 2 or 3 bind together certainly makes a stronger cord. The truth certainly comes out & lies exposed!
    .
    The alphabet news groups, governmental agencies & leftists attempted to depopulate humanity via emergency use of the experimental shot that does not give immunity but created a bio weapon (covid shots) that does more harm then good. Many also know they report fake news & spread disinformation. It will get worse since they still push the issue to get jabbed and continue to discredit the great outcome of ivermectin, vitamin D, zinc, hydroychloroquine (HQC), etc. which fights off flu like symptoms (many call it COVID19… I still call it the Wuhan, China virus). A gain of function virus deadlier than the seasonal flu yet there is treatment other than the jab. Ivermectin, HQC, Vitiman D along with Zinc saved lives but not profitable for big pharma or the leftist agenda.

    Thank you to the Kenai Mayor who shows courage & true patriotism in a time where courage is much needed with this info warfare we have faced since 2019…

  • Why are people so upset about other drugs that may help? Why are they so upset with people who don’t want the vaccination? Why do they want masks? Why do they want to force vaccinations? Everybody wants to debate on what to or what is right or even what to think but let’s get to the root of the problem, why is this being pushed sooo forcefully? Just wondering……

    • Because they don’t work. There isn’t a study or clinical trial with positive results. This isn’t that complicated. If it seems too good to be true, it probably is. Don’t go out and buy a lottery ticket, just because someone says it’s your lucky day. But by all means, you go ahead and take an experimental drug that costs money, while avoiding a vaccine that is free and is shown to work.

  • MSM is a cesspool of misinformation, they are in bed with the democratic party, CCP and of course the socialist movement, we can attribute the general decline we see now to them.

  • For all you anti-big-pharma bros out there Merck (which is a part of big pharma) is the developer and manufacturer of Ivermectin. The big pharma group Merck had this to say about their drug Ivermectin concerning covid:
    Merck (NYSE: MRK), known as MSD outside the United States and Canada, today affirmed its position regarding use of ivermectin during the COVID-19 pandemic. Company scientists continue to carefully examine the findings of all available and emerging studies of ivermectin for the treatment of COVID-19 for evidence of efficacy and safety. It is important to note that, to-date, our analysis has identified:
    No scientific basis for a potential therapeutic effect against COVID-19 from pre-clinical studies;
    No meaningful evidence for clinical activity or clinical efficacy in patients with COVID-19 disease, and;
    A concerning lack of safety data in the majority of studies.
    We do not believe that the data available support the safety and efficacy of ivermectin beyond the doses and populations indicated in the regulatory agency-approved prescribing information.
    .
    They also offer the following:
    Warnings and Precautions
    .
    Patients treated with STROMECTOL for onchocerciasis may experience cutaneous and/or systemic reactions of varying severity (the Mazzotti reaction) and ophthalmological reactions.
    .
    After treatment with microfilaricidal drugs, patients with hyperreactive onchodermatitis (sowda) may be more likely than others to experience severe adverse reactions, especially edema and aggravation of onchodermatitis.
    .
    Rarely, patients with onchocerciasis who are also heavily infected with Loa loa may develop a serious or even fatal encephalopathy either spontaneously or following treatment with an effective microfilaricide. In these patients, the following adverse experiences have also been reported: pain (including neck and back pain), red eye, conjunctival hemorrhage, dyspnea, urinary and/or fecal incontinence, difficulty in standing/walking, mental status changes, confusion, lethargy, stupor, seizures, or coma. In individuals who warrant treatment with ivermectin for any reason and have had significant exposure to Loa loa-endemic areas of West or Central Africa, pretreatment assessment for loiasis and careful post-treatment follow-up should be implemented.

    Best of luck to those who use a feed store anti-parasitic designed for animals. If your doctor prescribes this medicine in human dosage for covid, good luck being a human trial, the very thing you are trying not to be…

    Fear is a very powerful motivator.

    • Here are some real world facts for you regarding Ivermectin. If you don’t care to go here and educate yourself the bottom line is that Zimbabwe has used Ivermectin over the course of this “pandemic” to drop their covid death rate to near zero in a short amount of time. It works. I’ve used it and it works. It’s been used safely for many years in humans. I hope you don’t take any pharmaceuticals because they all have huge and scary side effects way worse than Ivermectin. And you know drug manufacturers are going to list every possible side effect including death to cover their butts so yes if you take to a high or inappropriate dose of anything including aspirin you will have ill effects. Ivermectin works and their is a safe protocol to its use just like all other drugs.

      Speaking of being a human trial, I hope you haven’t gotten the experimental vaccine, the biggest human trial ever to be done in the history of the world…

      • Ray, you realize that zimbabwe has a recorded COVID fatality rate of almost 4%, right? When you believe chain emails that make false claims, you should double check them to make sure it doesn’t have glaring errors. Ivermectin is not shown to work in any clinical studies. It’s only claimed to work, and then fail in trials. Do you really think it’s a unicorn?

        • Percentages mean nothing when only the most sick are tested. None of the percentages are truly accurate. As many (most?) people experiencing COVID are either asymptomatic or even mildly symptomatic, they don’t get tested and included in the numbers. Especially in a poor country, testing is limited so the percentage rate for bad outcomes will be worse. Sadly, little data out there holds credibility any more.

  • Re “Pierce explained the world needs more than vaccines — it needs treatments because it’s clear that the Covid-19 virus is not going away” …

    Effective safe and cheap Covid treatments have been available since the start but they’ve been heavily suppressed and censored (read “The 2 Married Pink Elephants In The Historical Room –The Holocaustal Covid-19 Coronavirus Madness: A Sociological Perspective  & Historical Assessment Of The Covid “Phenomenon”” by Rolf Hefti.

    But a perceptive 10 year old could see from the start that Covid-19 has nothing to do with real science (ie, it’s a crimes against humanity scam). The reasons why even most so-called intelligent people could not and still CANNOT figure that out are described in the article cited above.

    • Rolf Hefti writes about health issues without ever having completed or received any academic or scientific degree.
      His views are based on his own personal health issues and the various experimentation he has undertaken to overcome them.
      Comparing COVID-19 to the Holocaust is disgraceful, historically insupportable and morally rehensible.
      Many Holocaust survivors have spoken out on your so-called comparison.

      • Your denunciation is hollow.

        You mean you want people NOT to trust Hefti but to trust the guy without a medical degree who runs the World HEALTH organization? Or to trust the LYING highly awarded and credentialed MD called Dr. Fauci (see tinyurl dot com/v4yubt7u), and many other lying degreed people who run the government and other organizations?

        Hefti’s sourced references prove it is a holocaust REGARDLESS of what holocaust survivors claim. Only reality matters. Not opinions.

        And why not ask the opinions of American Indian genocide survivors of the US government indicted holcaust of theirs, or Palestine genocide survivors of the US-Israeli regimes’ holocaust operation in Palestine about their opinion if the US regime is capable of executing a covid holocast? It is obvious that the Jewish holocaust under the Nazis is used as a politicized event for political agendas (such as for damage control as you engage in). It’s also why hardly ever anyone reveals that the US regime criminals supported and built up Hitler and the Nazis and thus were directly responsible for the Jewish holocaust or that they brought many Nazis over to the US to work among and for the US government criminals (see operation “paperclip”). Naturally THOSE holcausts and connections do not count and left out of the discussions. Americans are propagandized to be exceptional folks, not sick and twisted and dishonest folks which most of them are in reality.

        It is apparent who should be ashamed for posting here…

  • Thank you MRA for this report. Thank you Mayor Pierce and all who support freedom of choice and freedom of information regarding the government health overreach, intrusions, mandates and restrictions. What’s pushed by the MSM is irrational, unsubstantiated, and deceitful. Who benefits from cancel culture? Protect yourself and question everything. The government has a hidden agenda and can’t be trusted, which we see proven again and again.

  • Steve-O, your shrill hysteria (and lack of credibility) is off the scale. You really need to switch to Sponge Bob and get a bong.

    • Steve-o and several others who show up regularly in the comments ignore factual feedback…that they could easily verify…and just repeat the same disinformation over and over. It’s as if they’re incapable of independent thought or critical thinking. They’re either very intellectually handicapped or, more likely, trolls.

      • It’s odd, you and AK demand freedom of thought, critical thinking, and independent decision making. But when freedom of thought, critical thinking, and independent decision making goes against your chosen narrative you lash out against it attacking it for not fitting the talking points that you repeat ad nauseum. You rail against liberals for not allowing other viewpoints but then you do the exact same thing.
        .
        The fact that you cannot rebut what I say but choose to call me names is very telling. Your ability to support your fervent beliefs is found wanting. Perhaps you should spend more time informing yourself and less time worrying about what it is that I, or those you disagree with are saying.

    • Are you crying about someone informing you? Oh noes…. call the wambulance.

  • Come on people, why would a drug completely unrelated to covid do anything to help with covid? How did this whole snake oil fad start in the first place?

    • Because it’s not about COVID. It’s about treating the symptoms.

    • Jon Alderson, I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt not being a complete fool. Chemotherapy today originated in study of mustard gas effects on soldiers during WWII. Chemicals have many effects, some desired and some not.

  • This is shameless what the MSM and the government are doing regarding Ivermectin. It works, I know I had covid bad and it kicked it good. It was like a miracle. Go look what it did in Zimbabwe took their death toll down to near zero in a short period of time. They aren’t that ignorant, they know these things and refuse to tell the truth. That’s why they are evil and corrupt. It’s hard to imagine there are people this evil sometimes.
