(UPDATE) Appeals Court rules FDA overstepped its authority re: ivermectin usage


An important update to our coverage of Covid treatments, vaccine mandates, and government missteps.

The following is a transcript of a report from “Full Measure with Sharyl Attkisson.” Watch the video by clicking the link at the end of the page.

An appeals court has ruled that the FDA overstepped its authority in telling the public not to use ivermectin to treat Covid.

The lawsuit was filed by Dr. Mary Tally Bowden and two others. Dr. Bowden says ivermectin is safe and effective to treat Covid, and, like many doctors, prescribed it to patients. But the FDA controversialized the medicine in infamous tweets that referred to the veterinary form of ivermectin. One tweet read, “You are not a horse. You are not a cow. Seriously, y’all. Stop it.”

Dr. Bowden argued the FDA hurt her ability to treat patients and damaged her reputation. She was one of the doctors featured in our report on medical professionals who refused the first hospital to mandate Covid vaccines: Houston Methodist.

Dr. Mary Talley Bowden: I’ve tested over 80,000 people for Covid, and that’s what first alerted me to what was going on, because we keep track of who’s vaccinated and who’s not. And the patients who were vaccinated and testing positive were just as sick, if not sicker, than the ones that weren’t. And eventually, I saw more vaccinated patients testing positive than unvaccinated, and that’s when I really became vocal — and Methodist did not like that.

In the ivermectin case, four appeals judges pointed out the FDA omitted that there’s a safe and effective human form of the medicine and ruled the FDA overstepped its authority.

In response to, “You are not a horse,” the court wrote, “FDA is not a physician. It has authority to inform, announce, and apprise — but not to endorse, denounce, or advise.”

Sharyl (on-camera): As a result of the court’s ruling against FDA, the doctors can continue with their lawsuit arguing the FDA exceeded its authority under federal law.

  1. I’m not an antivaxxer. I was waiting for a safer vaccine to come out, but then caught Covid-19 from my sister in August 2023. I was sick with flu-like symptoms for about two weeks.

    At this point, I don’t see the point (since I have antibodies) in taking any of the Covid-19 vaccines that are out in the market (i.e. Pfizer, Moderna or even Novavax).

    I’m pretty sure people with immunity problems are still dying from Covid-19 but despite this, it does seem the Covid-19 virus is becoming less lethal to people who are somewhat healthy. I have high-blood pressure and other health problems, but then still recovered from Covid-19 without taking Ivermectin.

    There should be some kind of study to determine whether or not the current trio of Covid-19 vaccines out in the market actually works or if the Covid-19 virus is evolving into something like the common cold.

    1. naominori8o8,

      Ask how so many major
      hospitals’ staff had time
      to practice – using 50
      to 60 nurses and doctors –
      line-dancing, to Rock
      songs – while Covid-19
      patients were dying in
      their hospital beds ?

      Covid-19 was ( is ) a
      global hoax, to serve
      the climate hoax, to
      serve establishment
      of ONE-WORLD
      B U R E U C R A M E N T
      —aka New World Order.

      It’s Global Socialism—to be
      F A I R to the “poor.”

      A Marxian project, via
      Libertine Liberal,
      emotion-driven, “men”
      and women—in the
      Democrat Party and
      World Economic Forum
      and . . .

      -Rick

      P.S.

      I avoid table sugar, and
      keep the body alkaline,
      to avoid colds and flu.

  2. What consequences prevent the FDA or any other “government entity” from doing the same?

    If we ever get a true legislature back, there needs to be “PENALTIES” for the autocrats.

  3. Follow the money. Approved protocols were funded and pushed on patients while those that weren’t part of the list of treatments supported by Fauci, et al, were denounced as voodoo medicine. Shielding of big pharma from lawsuits and funneling government subsidies into these approved practices probably killed thousands across the country and we are only now beginning to review what worked. Censoring and ridiculing those who questioned the government-supported protocols worked quite well and I certainly hope those in a position to push back will continue their efforts because we will surely experience another event like COVID before long.

  4. FDA lied. People died.
    All for money. And, possibly to accelerate population reduction for the World Economic Forum Agenda 2030.
    The mRNA jabs could not have happened if there were ANY alternative treatments like Ivermectin or Hydroxychloroquine. So, FDA chose to poopoo any mention of them. Preventatives like vitamin C and D and Zinc and keeping healthy with exercise and sleeping well were never mentioned. They’re not drugs so they couldn’t give advice about alternatives other than avoiding their mention. (a likely excuse)
    And, MASKing, shutdowns and social distancing—don’t get me started.
    The shunning of Ivermectin as “horse dewormer” was my first clue there was (and is) something Fishy in FDA. Be prudent and do your own research before deciding whether to get jabbed. Because the more boosters you get, the more likely you’ll lose your immunity system completely making it even more likely you’ll catch something from which you’ll not recover.
