Beyond The Roundup | Senate Hearing On Ivermectin Brings Unexpected Drama

Fact Checking The Fact Checkers: Associated Press VS Ivermectin

The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee heard from medical professionals who advocate for alternative coronavirus treatments and mitigation measures than those at the National Institutes of Health, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and World Health Organization.

Unexpected Drama emerged as Ranking Member Gary Peters in his opening statement denounced the hearing and castigated the Doctors before they even had a chance to speak.

  1. Trial Site News (TSN) is providing a VITAL service which is very much appreciated.

    I have been following ivermectin information for 5 months and put together an archive of information. You and your viewers can find it here:

    I live in Australia and am preparing an Open Letter to our state and federal governments as well as our national TV stations to alert them to the “mountain of evidence” proving ivermectin works to control Covid. The Australian TGA (our FDA) is remiss, as are your authorities, to DO THEIR JOB, that the likes of your FLCCC Alliance and others have done.

    Perhaps TSN could create a forum where medical people and others can provide credible evidence regarding ivermectin and other off-label use can be documented where government health authorities can go to find break-through information.

    I believe the primary reason why health authorities have ignored off-label drug use for Covid is their FIXATION on Randomized Controlled Trials as being the ONLY credible evidence. I have read many times how well-designed and conducted observational trial are equally valid as RCTs.

    I’d like to alert TFN and others to the off-label use BUDESONIDE as reported by Dr Richard Bartlett. I have archived an excellent interview with him here:

    Had these government health authorities done what FLCCC Alliance has done months ago the Covid Pandemic would now be a thing of the past. The wide-spread public use of ivermectin (like 8 regions of Peru did) would have quickly slowed the spread of the virus in a few weeks. This would have saved hundreds of thousands of lives and avoided the economic disaster that lockdowns have caused.

    If well-educated people like you and I can see this, why our so-called experts can’t who live in their ivory towers and dictate to qualified doctors who fear going against their recommendations?

    A special mention here to Senator Ron Johnson for holding the two Senate Committee Hearings. He is a great role model for what good politicians should be doing. What a contrast to Gary Peters who is typical of what a politician shouldn’t be.

    Keep up the good work TSN and all others who are contributing to this movement!

  2. I am going to use my organization ( Repeal Citizens United) to try to Primary Peters in his next election. This outrageous attack on brave Doctors who are bucking the huge Pharma industry to get needed help to millions around the world, shows where his interests are. I have used Ivermectin myself after being exposed to the virus, and I had no ill effects from neither the drug or the virus. I am certain that the FDA and other government interest in the pocket of Big Pharma, have the agonizing deaths of many thousands of people on their hands.

  3. To me, as a medical doctor, there are very few plausible reasons for the governments {CDE, FDA} stance on ivermectin. 1; they are not keeping up with the literature and new studies,i.e. their job. 2: they are concerned that ivermectin is so effective that it will deter patients from receiving vaccination for covid19. 3; I do not believe the FDA or CDC are supporting the drug companies but I do suspect they are under pressure from some of our elected officials to do so. I agree, there are other possibilities, but to me, they seem less likely


  4. It is clear that Gary Peters treated the Doctors who appeared with disdain. A few have earned a reputation that warrants it.

    Unfortunately, Dr. Kory and a few others were falsely accused of promoting pseudo science by Gary Peters because there were physicians who have aligned themselves with controversial approaches and forums. Gary Peters should have been more careful, but he went for the spotlight and now looks more like a moth than a US Senator.

    The hearing agenda was a mixed bag of advocacy on behalf of patients and Docs. The fact that some more controversial figures were invited spoiled the Ivermectin advocacy.

    I don;t know Peters’ motivation, but I can only assume he was misguided by the NYT article or by some staffer. I plan to call to voice concern that he may have thrown the baby out with the bath water

    1. Yes John,

      There were a few things wrong with the setup regarding that Senate Hearing.

      One was that Gary Peters was invited to attend.
      Another was that NYT was taken as being true by Peters when relying on an article in it when in fact Dr. Chaccour advocated more testing to be done on ivermectin probably because he is running a trial himself.

      If you read Dr. Chaccour’s “Q&A on ivermectin” then you’ll realise he doesn’t anywhere say it doesn’t work… he was giving simply himself time to organise an RCT.

      TSN has been aghast at the lack of curiosity in ivermectin by medical professionals and generally seems to feel that because it has run out of patent it’s not being considered by “big pharma” Dr. Chaccour tries to settle this by saying there’s enough money to be made by ivermectin but he’s been very naive in his reasoning in that “Q&A” thing.

      If you’re in doubt; follow the money.

  5. You are doctors of great honor.

    I too am sharing the information on benefits of ivermectin for SARS-COV-2 prevention and severity reduction.

    I know how you feel having also seen that USA medical healthcare system is the least justified to have a know-it-all attitude. Peru has only one peak of coronavirus infections that came after an article by Time magazine about how the response to COVID-19 is not working in Lima where most of the cases were occurring. The health ministry found an answer and that was ivermectin. Now the USA’s third wave embarrasses the domestic health authorities, but they haven’t grown humble enough to accept that a poor person in desperationt ingested a $0.60 a dose 12 mg ivermectin along with 8¢ for two 50 mg zinc tablets for three times is superior to the over rated solutions the FDA, NIH and CDC are showing to DHS.

    This is a natural world of nations of people, with a purpose to pursue health. We live in rural areas, villages, towns and cities, not a cyber-technocratic hardened fortress that prisoners as test subjects are locked in. The billions of humans outside of the labs, clinics, and pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities cannot accept giving their health decisions up by, in effect, waiving their own rights to pursue protective measures by having “doctors” who tell them to do primitive things, but haven’t produced the medicine. I am one that is crying out for a natural-origin anthelmintic and boticide to be re-purposed for a virus…

    … IVERMECTINA, Peru! Your compassion is honorable.

    Thanks TrialSiteNews and the I-MASK project, and others who are in on this movement to prevent deaths and invigorate lives.

  6. The senate hearing was designed to fail and take the spotlight off of ivermectin where it belongs. The inclusion of Jane Orient and the minority speaker’s comments derailed the hearing.

    We have a solution to covid today – ivermectin.

    How maybe more people need to die before the NIH, CDC and FDA approve this miraculous drug?

    Instead of spending 1000s on worthless remdesivir 100s of patients can benefit from repurposed ivermectin.

    The data is overwhelming

    •Ivermectin is effective for COVID-19. 100% of studies report positive effects. The probability that an ineffective treatment generated results as positive as the 24 studies to date is estimated to be 1 in 17 million (p = 0.00000006).

    •Early treatment is most successful, with an estimated reduction of 87% in the effect measured using a random effects meta-analysis, RR 0.13 [0.04-0.51].

    •100% of the 10 Randomized Controlled Trials (RCTs) report positive effects, with an estimated reduction of 74% in the effect measured using a random effects meta-analysis, RR 0.26 [0.12-0.56].

  7. I have personal family stories about the safe use of ivermectin and immediate recovery of Covid when taken in the first week of symptoms. It works! Shame on officials and doctors who do not start taking this research seriously when it is has such a great safety profile and so far proven to be useful for at least early infection. Too many have died and suffered already!

    1. Hi Cathy, thanks for sharing. I’m very interested in this. What form was the medicine given in, pill or otherwise? Thx

    2. A close friends mother’s life was saved because of Ivermectin. She was about to be hospitalized with severe symptoms of Covid. A Doctor who is a family friend told her to take Ivermectin. She was healthy in 2 days. This is life saving and this information needs be global news

  8. Thank you, TSN. In my view, you guys are the “tops.” You’ve consistently presented fair, balanced, reliable and edifying information on all manner of drugs and therapies for SARSCov2 infection and the resulting disease of Covid-19, from the start! I wish you a very happy, safe, and comforting holiday season. Together, we will make it a brighter time with you and so many other brave and intelligent people to light the way. Most of all, thank you for never suppressing evidence that early treatment works! You are saving lives with your work here. Cheers. ML
