Ivermectin Makes You Sterile

Closing Thought–13Sep21

These days the idiot Right is fixated on a horse de-wormer as a ‘cure/vaccine’ for the Covid virus…..it is getting so toxic that QAnon is screaming and threatening people to use the animal drug Ivermectin as a treatmenr for Covid…..

Supporters of the QAnon conspiracy theory recently launched a protest to demand an ill COVID patient be treated with the controversial livestock drug, Ivermectin.

According to The Chicago Sun Times, QAnon backers targeted the Amita Resurrection Medical Center in Chicago as a small group of conspiracy theorists flooded the medical facility with phone calls while others held an in-person protest.

One of the headlines I read over the weekend was basically the title of this post…Ivermectin makes men sterile….

A study published in 2011 and widely circulated in September 2021 found that 85% of men treated with ivermectin for a tropical disease known as river blindness were found to be sterile.

Does Ivermectin Cause Sterility in Men?

Would make a good meme for social media but the FDA put the brakes on this ‘conspiracy’….

  • The FDA does not list male sterility as one of the side effects of taking ivermectin. 
  • Scientific studies typically undergo a rigorous peer-review process that assesses the methods and results of a study to ensure that it meets a certain standard of scientific quality. 
  • Ivermectin has not been approved as a treatment against COVID-19.
 
I constantly ask just what does someone gain by pushing slimy and dodgey ‘cure’ for Covid?
 
Proponents of ivermectin as a treatment for covid are now in damage-control mode after a series of stories about people overdosing on horse paste and sheep drench from feed stores.

Such luminaries as Joe Rogan, Tucker Carlson, Brett Weinstein and United States Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wisconsin) stoked demand for the dewormer, only to have the craze blow up in the faces when the ginned-up demand outstripped the pharmaceutical supply and people started self-medicating with horse paste.

The zeal of the ivermectin prophets was self-defeating. The whole point of being an Ivermectin Guy is that you can indulge in antivaxx conspiracy theories while sounding smarter than the Microchip Guys. That’s why they get so mad when you call it “horse paste.”

I still cannot understand why someone to would take the word of a babbling radio personality over the advice of experts in the field of infectious diseases….instead they listen to the advice of those that are experts in stupid.

What To Expect From Centrists

I have made my thoughts known about what I think of so-called “centrists”……not a big fan of the term…but for those that missed my past posts…..

 
As an example I will use the civil rights fight John Clyburn (this will get me into trouble for attacking an icon like him)….this is about bowing to cash in opposition to progress……
James Clyburn is a Dixiecrat on almost every issue except segregation, and even then he repeatedly chided the Civil Rights Movement for “going too far.” His pivotal endorsement of Obama said more about Obama’s real political character than Clyburn’s. But say this for the Dixiecrats of old, they based their politics largely on conviction, debased convictions to be sure. Clyburn follows the money (He’s pocketed more than $1 million from the health “care” lobby alone). He is one of the premier transactional politicians of our time, a contract killer hired to protect the agenda of corporate America.
 
(Jeffery St. Clair)
He is an example and by NO MEANS a solitary figure….this is how progress comes to a halt….bowing to cash and lobbyist.
 
Cash buys even civil rights icons….so how can we get anything done in the nation?
 
When will this era of buying government come to an end?
 
To answer my own question….since I am an old fart….not in my lifetime….greed is more powerful than  allegiance to country and its people.
 
This has to end.
 
We need dedicated representatives….not toadies standing in the payday line at lobbying firms.
 
But that is a pipe dream as long as dark money is throwing in the direction of our politicians….federal funding is the answer.
 Corporation can give all they desire but t would go into a fund and not in the pockets of individuals….
 
Money has given rise to the idiocy of today…..and only the loss of that cash will stop the spread of the political cancer we are suffering with now.

A complaint filed Thursday with the Federal Election Commission accuses 18 super PACs—which dumped over $200 million into races from 2017 to 2020—of deliberately misleading voters by concealing their connections to the major party political action committees that financed them.

“Voters have a right to know when big money is flowing into their elections from D.C.-based groups hiding their agendas and funding behind fake names,” said Adav Noti, senior director of trial litigation and chief of staff at Campaign Legal Center (CLC) Action, and former associate general counsel of the FEC, in a statement.

“The vast scope of this illegal concealment should prompt swift investigation and a firm crackdown by the FEC,” he added.

 
Even Progressives are not at all pleased with the antics of these Centrists….

House Democrats from both sides of the political spectrum are finding it hard to contain their annoyance at their 10 colleagues threatening to topple President Joe Biden’s entire agenda — for no real reason. 

The centrist group claims that Americans can’t wait a moment longer for the hard infrastructure upgrades, and that the bipartisan bill shouldn’t be used as a “political football.” 

 
I have been told by friends that I may be a bit too hard on the Centrists (Moderates)….but his says I am not…..
With Democrats clinging to just an eight-seat majority in the House of Representatives, even a small number of defectors can hold up the party’s legislative agenda. That reality was on vivid display last week, when nine moderate Democrats threatened to vote no on moving forward with Democrats’ $3.5 trillion budget resolution unless the House first voted to pass the Senate’s bipartisan $1 trillion infrastructure package.
 
We need a government of the best people….not the best people money can buy….and Centrists are owned by the dollars from Lobbyists and corporations.
 
In this political climate in the US Centrists are holding Progress up because they are paid to do just that.
 
As my earlier posts prove just how pathetic these people are…..and how the nation needs reps with balls and not those that worship money.
 
Why are Dems so ineffectual?
 
Easy answer….

It is just that easy to explain.

The Long Awaited 9/11 Documents

This post is for those that have been selling the conspiracy that Saudi Arabia was part of the attack……

Biden decided to authorize the release of the FBI investigation into those that committed the attacks on 9/11…basically so he could have his photo op o the 20 year observance of the attack.

The link below is to the redacted report that was released….

Heavy redaction…..

declassified document

2015 interview with an official who worked at the Saudi Consulate in Los Angeles. 

He was found to be an al-Qaeda “facilitator” by the FBI after admitting he allowed two of the hijackers to use his apartment and help them travel around LA.

Investigators believe the Saudi official provided “significant logistic support” to Nawaf al Hazmi and Khalid al Midhar, who took part in the plot to hijack and crash four planes in New York and Washington.

The two men were on board American Airlines Flight 77 when it crashed into the Pentagon on September 11, 2001.

The document also revealed links between Omar Bayoumi, a student suspected to have been a Saudi intelligence operative, and Hazmi and Midhar.

Based on interviews in 2009 and 2015 with a source whose identity is classified, the FBI file details meetings between Bayoumi and the hijackers after the pair arrived in Southern California in 2000 ahead of the attacks.

Does this answer those probing questions?

Not for me….but it does open up a bunch more questions.

This is for those that want more information like me….

Shortly before 9/11 the National Security Agency (NSA) asked Thomas Drake to join its senior staff. As things turned out, Sept. 11 was his first day on the job. Already au courant with key NSA programs via his earlier contract work, Tom was immediately tasked to find out how much information NSA had on terrorist attacks before 9/11.

Drake found an embarrassing abundance of such information. But when he told top NSA management, his investigation was abruptly shut down. On Jan. 7, 2014 in a VIPS Memorandum prepared for President Obama, “NSA Insiders Reveal What Went Wrong.”

As the post-9/11 months dragged on, Drake had to listen to NSA Director Michael Hayden’s gloating over the ease with which he was able to hide NSA’s egregious performance. It is a good guess that a huge part of that “ease” can be attributed to protection by Hayden’s very powerful patron, Vice President Dick Cheney. It is clear that the Vice President played a key role in “authorizing” unconstitutional surveillance. It is also possible that, BEFORE the 9/11 attacks, Hayden shared with Cheney some of the alarming evidence NSA had collected but otherwise kept to itself. Tom continued:

Plenty of Intelligence To Prevent 9/11
