BACK THE BLUE: More police officers have been shot so far this year than any other year since statistics have been kept. CLICK [2:45] for a Fox News report. Warning: The guy they interview had a LOT of caffeine before going on the air. LOL

BUY-COTT: After a central Florida diner posted this sign, patrons swarmed to eat there. On Wednesday, they had to close early because they ran out of food.

The owner told the Daytona Beach News-Journal, “I’ve gotten so many people calling me from all over the world, from Europe, trying to purchase meals for veterans, which I still haven’t been able to organize. I think that the veterans will be fed for the rest of the year at the rate I’m getting donations.

FRANCE: Last month, France’s equivalent of the US Supreme Court ruled that parents must obtain permission to home-school from local authorities, instead of simply producing a declaration that they have opted for this form of instruction within the family as was the case to date.

In a recent poll, 43 percent of French citizens agreed with the proposition that France is becoming a “dictatorship.”

IVERMECTIN: CLICK [8:55] to hear from Get Real Dan talk about the politicization of science and the left’s mission to demonize cheap, effective treatments for COVID-19.

Ivermectin was FDA approved in 1998 to treat parasitic infections. Like hydroxychloroquine, it is an ionophore. Two others are quercetin, and resveratrol, both available over the counter. All of them open a cellular door, allowing zinc to enter the cell, where it then interferes with viral replication, providing potential therapeutic benefit in viral and other infections.

A study published several months ago in the American Journal of Therapeutics reported that 18 randomized controlled treatment trials of ivermectin in COVID-19 had found “large, statistically significant reductions in mortality, time to clinical recovery, and time to viral clearance.” The study also found that ivermectin was effective as a prophylactic. But, yeah, there’s NO EVIDENCE that ivermectin is effective against COVID. Riiiight.

When India had a surge in COVID cases earlier this year, ivermectin was put into widespread use in all but one state. In all but that one, cases dropped by 97%. In that one, cases tripled.

The Japanese Medical Association recently endorsed ivermectin for COVID. So why is our own CDC cautioning against it? Why is our own FDA saying we should not use it? And why is our media busily demonizing it? Could it be that the drug is old enough to be available as a dirt cheap generic, so that Merck, the Big Pharma company that originally patented it, isn’t making the big bucks any more.

Plus, you know, Merck has a ton of money tied up in its new, expensive COVID specific drug. Click the bottom link to read about the $1.2 billion deal Merck has with the U.S. government if its drug gets approved. So yeah, by all means, let’s NOT use that cheapo generic that has been in use for more than 20 years, cuz it’s not just used for humans, but also for cows and horses. (So is aspirin.) Plus if misused it can have serious, even deadly side-effects. (Ditto every drug on the market, Rx and OTC.)
