The BIGGE$T Lie (Perhaps Ever)
By Joyce Kamen
The Big Lie.
What is meant by that? After all, we’ve heard that term often of late.
Well, a Big Lie is meant to do one thing: Alter reality. To have others believe something that is — on its face, and in fact — fantastical. It is to ask people to lose faith in their own sensibilities, to follow as if blind to where they are led, and then to disbelieve, ridicule, or even attempt to systematically silence anyone one who dares to dismiss or refute the Big Lie.
The biggest problem with a Big Lie is that those who have acquiesced to it and repeat it (instead of the facts) become full participants in broadcasting a “reality” that is anything but real. That opens the door to violence, hate, and in extreme cases, mass murder and unchecked loss of life.
This essay is entitled, “The BIGGE$T Lie” because the lie we will discuss has resulted in the latter. Loss of life — in the extreme. Loss of life — that was unnecessary. Loss of life — at the heartless hands of people who have the $$$ and the power to stop it but will not.
This particular lie that has caused hundreds of thousands of people to perish across the globe…is not over. The death count is still rising as your eyes scan these words. It is The BIGGE$T Lie — perhaps ever.
The BIGGE$T Lie that is revealed in this piece will likely itself be called a “Big Lie” by those who have ingested mega-doses of the killer Kool Aid. But I can’t (won’t) worry about that. My purpose here is to present the facts that are deeply, irrefutably rooted in science…and therefore in reality. Then you can decide for yourself. And perhaps we can all save some lives here. OK?
The BIGGE$T Lie is this: We do not yet have a medicine that can prevent and treat every phase of COVID-19 disease — from pre-exposure to the critical stage of illness.
It’s the BIGGE$T Lie because of this: We DO have such a pill. It’s ivermectin. A 50-year-old, highly safe, inexpensive, globally available Nobel prize-winning medicine that is dropping case counts and saving lives by the tens of thousands in the countries where it is being used.
So why don’t we suggest the truer statement instead. It would read something like this: “We do not have an extremely high-priced, novel pill developed by Big Pharma using billions of taxpayer dollars that can prevent and treat every phase of COVID-19 disease — from pre-exposure to the critical stage of illness. We only have ivermectin, which actually does it all, safely and quickly, but which requires $0 to develop so there are no profits in it for us. So let’s hush it up, make up stuff about it and make it go away so we can rake in billion$. What do you say?”
So, before we go on, I want to give you links to just some of the peer-reviewed published science that proves the efficacy of ivermectin. Just so you are comfortable knowing that there’s no doubt that the BIGGE$T Lie is just that. Here you go. (If you want more, go to flccc.net.)

Now that you have seen some of the science for ivermectin for yourself, let’s see how The BIGGE$T Lie is being perpetrated — resulting in needless death for hundreds of thousands of innocent people.
First, Big Pharma has a greedy hand in the BIGGE$T Lie. Huh? What? Drug companies? Aren’t they in the business of making drugs that save lives and enhance human health? Well, sure they are. And they do plenty of good throughout the world. That much is undeniably true. But the pandemic has blessed Big Pharma with a multi-billion dollar payday…predominantly remuneration for the development of desperately needed vaccines.
OK. So what?
I’ll tell you what. The reality is that there are people who are vaccine hesitant. Then there are those for whom vaccines are medically contraindicated. Others around the world have no access to the vaccine, and may not for years. What are they supposed to do? For them, finding a medicine — or combination of medicines — that will keep them safe from a killer virus is critical. They need a bridge, if you will, to the vaccine; or a safety net to keep them well until either the virus recedes or herd immunity is established.
Enter ivermectin. The little drug that could. And could. And could.
It’s clear that Big Pharma will be damned if they will allow a spunky, cheap, over-performing half-century old drug to ride into town and to start saving lives like a world champ on a global tear. Just imagine what that would do to profit$ of both the vaccines and other high-priced therapeutics that don’t have even a tiny fraction of the quick, safe, lifesaving muscle ivermectin has?
You want proof that Big Pharma is complicit in the “Shut up and go away, ivermectin” campaign? Of course you do. You deserve incontrovertible proof.
So here’s a case in point. Merck, the drug company that developed ivermectin almost 50 years ago and helped to eradicate parasite pandemics around the world with it, came out with a press release in February, 2021. It was swarming with falsehoods. It was released just as Merck was developing its own entry into the anti-viral COVID drug derby. In it, they warned against the use of ivermectin for the treatment of COVID.
o “No scientific basis for a potential therapeutic effect against COVID-19 from pre-clinical studies;
o No meaningful evidence for clinical activity or clinical efficacy in patients with COVID-19 disease, and;
o A concerning lack of safety data in the majority of studies.”
As you can see, Big Pharma — in this case Merck — is a mighty cog in the wheel of The BIGGE$T Lie. Without scientific data to support their statements, Merck essentially vomited lie-laced bile on its own workhorse of a drug — on which their patent expired in 1996. Because you’ve read the science, you now know that the statement made by Merck is a fatal (criminal?) falsehood. It matters not one whit that Merck remains the largest global producer of ivermectin. They can’t make a serious profit from it…even though the need for it is global.
The BIGGE$$T Lie.
What about our public health agencies? You know, they’re the ones that do not recommend the use of ivermectin for COVID-19 despite the voluminous scientific data that points to ivermectin as the medicine of choice to prevent and treat COVID.
Let’s take a look, shall we, at the World Health Organization (WHO) to better inform this point. On March 31, 2021, the WHO issued a statement on the use of ivermectin. It recommended against its use except in clinical trials. The statement said, in part:
“The [WHO panel] reviewed pooled data from 16 randomized controlled trials (total enrolled 2407), including both inpatients and outpatients with COVID-19. They determined that the evidence on whether ivermectin reduces mortality, need for mechanical ventilation, need for hospital admission and time to clinical improvement in COVID-19 patients is of “very low certainty,” due to the small sizes and methodological limitations of available trial data, including small number of events.”
Hmmm. Let’s just see if that’s true.
The Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC) — a nonprofit, humanitarian organization made up of renowned, highly published, world-expert clinician-researchers whose sole mission over the past year has been to develop and disseminate the most effective treatment protocols for COVID-19 — recently issued a white paper on “The Irregular Actions of Public Health Agencies and the Widespread Disinformation Campaign Against Ivermectin.” In it, they reported the following:
“The WHO Ivermectin Panel arbitrarily included only a narrow selection of the available medical studies that their research team had been instructed to collect when formulating their recommendation, with virtually no explanation why they excluded such a voluminous amount of supportive medical evidence.”
The authors had more to say:
“The many methods employed by the WHO to distort the evidence base and arrive at a non-recommendation are made even more suspicious and questionable by the following:
1. The WHO Panel did not hold a vote on the use of ivermectin. This highly irregular decision was purportedly based on the Ivermectin Panel’s “consensus on evidence certainty.”
2. Unitaid Sponsors allegedly inserted multiple limitations and weakened the conclusions in the preprint, systematic review manuscript by the Unitaid research team, which has recently led to formal charges of scientific misconduct.
3. Recent WHO whistleblower complaints of external influences in other WHO Covid reports, as well as attempts by massive external funding organizations to increase their influence in formulating WHO policies.”
Said the FLCCC: “We are forced to publicly expose what we believe can only be described as a ‘disinformation’ campaign astonishingly waged with full cooperation of those authorities whose mission is to maintain the integrity of scientific research and protect public health.”

This essay is a call to join an urgent rescue mission. All those that will soon be requiring rescue cannot currently be identified. In fact, in the not-too-distant future, you yourself may be one of those requiring immediate intervention with a medication that works very, very well against COVID-9. We just don’t know yet all those who will need to be saved by ivermectin.
Normally, I would petition the government to mount this rescue. Or, at the very least, I would ask our public health agencies to intervene. But I cannot, for they are among the perpetrators of this ongoing crime against humanity.
Next, I would approach the media (and have repeatedly) for their ability to ring the bell warning of real and continuing danger. And I would simultaneously take to social media to sound the alarm myself to as many eyeballs as I could possibly reach.
But in this situation, many big tech and major media platforms are taking their marching orders from the higher ups — as noted above. They are scuttling stories about ivermectin while YouTube, Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook and other social media platforms censor information about ivermectin and completely shut down the channels of repeat offenders. This causes people to die.
Recently, Carl Zimmer, a “science” writer for the New York Times, wrote a story that has, in my mind, become EXHIBIT A for how the The BIGGE$T Lie has corrupted journalists who may have, at one time or another, possessed at least a modicum of integrity. It is impossible to understand how Mr. Zimmer can sleep peacefully at night since he penned this piece that gave enormous fuel to The BIGGE$T Lie. How can anyone rest at all knowing that they have been party to an ongoing humanitarian crime?
Zimmer’s article, “A Pill to Treat Covid-19? The U.S. Is Betting on It.”(June 18, 2021)is infested with demonstrable falsehoods and claim after deceitful claim. The article, meant to announce a $3.2 billion government investment for the development of antiviral COVID-19 pills, is largely a work of pure fiction.
Zimmer:“But despite more than a year of research, no such pill exists to treat someone with a coronavirus infection before it wreaks havoc.“
Truth: This is FALSE. In dozens of studies conducted throughout the world in 2020 and 2021, the sheer volume of science and medical evidence demonstrating the efficacy of ivermectin to prevent and treat every phase of the disease is crushing. (One would think a science writer for a newspaper as large and influential as the New York Times would know something about these studies.)
Zimmer:“Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and a key backer of the [government investment] program, said he looked forward to a time when Covid-19 patients could pick up antiviral pills from a pharmacy as soon as they tested positive for the coronavirus or develop Covid-19 symptoms.”
Truth: If Zimmer had done his homework, he would have known that with a doctor’s prescription, patients can pick up ivermectin (an FDA-approved drug that can be easily prescribed off-label) from the pharmacy right now, and he would have called Fauci out on it.He would also know that the studies show that the astounding majority of patients who begin a course of ivermectin once the first symptoms of COVID-19 appear do not progress to the critical phase of the disease. Instead, they recover. No hospital. No ventilator. No dying. (One would think a science writer for a newspaper as large and influential as the New York Times would have challenged Dr. Fauci on his patently false and profoundly misleading statement.)
Zimmer:“At the start of the pandemic, researchers began testing existing antivirals in people hospitalized with severe Covid-19. But many of those trials failed to show any benefit from the antivirals.”
Truth: Either Zimmer didn’t read the science, or he’s been directed NOT to tell readers that the trials in fact showed that ivermectin demonstrated tremendous benefits — and that it was a highly safe and fast-acting drug. (One would think a science writer for a newspaper as large and influential as the New York Times would know something about the data coming out of these ivermectin trials.)
Zimmer:“So far, only one antiviral has demonstrated a clear benefit to people in hospitals: Remdesivir.”
Truth: False. False. False. People in hospitals suffering from COVID-19 are generally there because they have progressed to the pulmonary, or “critical” late-phase of the disease — when many have difficulty breathing. During this phase, most anti-viral medications will be of little or no benefit since the viral replication phase of the disease is over. However, ivermectin can be of considerable benefit in late stage disease since in addition to its anti-viral properties for prevention and early phase treatment, ivermectin also possesses anti-inflammatory properties which is of significant benefit to hospitalized patients struggling to breathe.
Zimmer:“And if the history of antiviral research is any guide, the first drugs for Covid-19 will probably only offer modest benefit against the disease, Dr. Fauci said. But that would be a good start…With all of these drugs that we’ve dealt with over the years, we’ve never hit a home run the first time at bat…A line drive off the left-field wall to start would be really good.”
Truth: Here’s yet another example in the article of Zimmer allowing a blatantly false and inaccurate statement by the head of the NIAID and the nation’s COVID-19 response team to go unchallenged. Clearly, had Zimmer asked Dr. Fauci about the mountains of peer-reviewed medical evidence for ivermectin, and about ivermectin’s proven ability to have large magnitude benefit against all stages of COVID-19 — which is essentially hitting a grand slam out of the park — this article would read quite differently…as it should have.
So here’s the bottom line:
· The United States is spending $3.2B to try to find an anti-viral drug for COVID-19 that already exists. The U.S. KNOWS it exists. (So do journalists, Big Tech and Big Pharma.) But ivermectin is cheap. It requires no $$$ for development. There’s no $$$ to be made on it. So they believe that the only thing to do is to spend $3.2B of taxpayer’s money to find a drug that will make money — and lots of it. And the only way they can do that is to silence the science around ivermectin and hope you never hear about it. (Too late.)
· The United States has just given Merck — the pharmaceutical company who published scurrilous lies about ivermectin (the very drug they developed ) $1.2B to develop their new drug Molnupiravir; which has already failed trials in hospitalized patients.
You should also know that Merck’s Molnupirivir is a copy of one of Ivermectin’s mechanisms. (This mechanism is to disrupt the SARS-COV-2 virus’ RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (RdRp) enzyme.) Copying this mechanism will give Merck a way to earn from an existing cheap drug’s action by relabeling it. Said physician and researcher Dr. Mobeen Syed, “I believe that Molnupiravir will continue to be less effective as studies show that Ivermectin has more mechanisms to disrupt the SARS-COV-2 replication and spread. Hence, Ivermectin will continue to be a superior choice over Molnupirivir or other RdRp disrupters.”
Now that you know the irrefutable science for ivermectin, please act to free it from suppression and censorship so that hundreds of thousands of lives around the world will be saved.
Call your elected representatives. Share the science for ivermectin. Call out those who are complicit in the silencing of science. Speak to community groups. Write letters to the editor. Post on your social media pages. Call your doctor. Email TV and radio newsrooms. Speak to school groups. Place notices in the newsletters of places of worship.
Tell everyone in your sphere of influence that it’s been known for MONTHS that ivermectin could bring an end to this pandemic but media, Big Tech, Big Pharma and your government tried as hard as they could to keep it quiet. And who could blame them? Pockets had not yet been lined off the pandemic. More time…and more opportunity was needed to get the job done. I mean, how often does a pandemic come around to fling the door wide open to unimaginable riches?
Dr. Fauci recently said, “It is essential as a scientist that you evolve your opinion and your recommendations based on the data as it evolves…That’s the way science works. You work with the data you have at the time.”
If Dr. Fauci believes his own words, he now has little choice but to acknowledge the unassailable science for ivermectin and stop the needless loss of life here — and throughout the world. He can no longer say that the evidence for ivermectin is thin or that we need more studies to prove its efficacy. That train has left the station.
And now, we’re blowing the whistle.
