Like a page pulled straight from the dystopian novel "1984" by George Orwell, the FDA is apparently hoping that enough Americans will simply forget that the FDA ordered America's doctors not to prescribe ivermectin for covid. The agency even put out a tweet mocking about how ivermectin is supposedly just a drug for horses and cattle – this despite the FDA approving ivermectin for treating parasites in humans back in the mid-1990s.
In an admission that will probably go down in the history books – at least the alternative ones – as an FDA clown show, agency lawyer Ashley Cheung Honold, a Department of Justice attorney representing the FDA in court, told the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit on August 8 the following:
"FDA explicitly recognizes that doctors do have the authority to prescribe ivermectin to treat covid."
Keep in mind that doctors are not required to abide by anything the FDA says or does, at least as far as the United States Constitution is confirmed. Last we checked, nowhere in that foundational document is there any stipulation that an FDA should exist at all.
What was supposed to happen according to the design of the founding fathers is that Americans were to be free and clear of government intrusion into their personal lives, including the foods they eat and the substances they take. Nowhere in the Constitution is it stipulated that the federal government is to control our nourishment or our healing.
"It's important to reiterate that the feds have absolutely no moral or constitutional power to create an FDA in the first place, let alone to artfully craft their arbitrary so-called 'rules' about when and how drugs can be sold or used," is how P. Gardner Goldsmith from mrcTV puts it.
"We are supposed to be free to peacefully trade with others and to ingest what we want."
The bureaucrats that occupy Washington, D.C., seem to have failed to learn from the Tea Act of 1773 when patriots dumped British tea into the Boston Harbor in protest of unconstitutional taxes. The FDA has committed much more egregious crimes and could finally now be on the verge of seeing a massive revolt against its existence.
The FDA appears to be trying to get ahead of the pitchforked mobs that want to abolish the agency entirely by trying to rewrite history and pretend as though it never tried to interfere with the right of doctors to prescribe whatever medicine they deem best for patients, including ivermectin.
"The fundamental issue in this case is straightforward. After the FDA approves the human drug for sale, does it then have the authority to interfere with how that drug is used within the doctor-patient relationship? The answer is no," stated Jared Kelson, a lawyer representing three doctor plaintiffs in the case against the FDA that led to the FDA backtracking on its previous stance.
Even more fundamental to this case is the fact that the FDA, by definition, should not even exist in the first place. Again, the Constitution does not afford the FDA or any other agency the power to decide what "drugs" – even the word "drug" is contrived – are available on the market.
Has the FDA ever been truthful? Has the agency ever worked on behalf of We the People instead of Big Pharma? Learn more at FDA.news.
