    IVERMECTIN (Repurposed Drug) 2/5/2021

    SAFER SOLUTION to Covid-19 virus prevention. Lessens Suffering and Hospital Days Even for Critical Patients and those on Ventilators. Good for persons with Allergies and the Elderly.

    Dr. Paul Marik formed the Frontline COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance

    (FLCCC) This 10-member international group of ICU specialists and Professors of Medicine recently discovered that the drug IVERMECTIN (developed in 1975) has been amazingly effective in both preventing the Covid-19 virus and lessening suffering. For the critically ill, and even those on ventilators, a significant drop in fatality rates were observed. Watch these on

    2) “Dr Pierre Kory Senate Testimony on Early COVID-19 Treatment” Posted 12/9/2020

    IVERMECTIN has many curative properties, mainly: anti-parasitic, anti-viral and anti-inflammatory. Positive IVERMECTIN results can be seen quickly after administering the initial dose and it is an extremely safe and inexpensive drug. Contraindications list warfarin, however, those who have been on blood-thinning medications have had better results since the Covid-19 virus can cause blood clots. Some people with allergies have been treated with Epi-pens or taken to the ICU after their injection of Covid-19 vaccines (see for drug contraindications).

    The protocol that needs to get into the hands of ICU doctors, physician assistants, nurses and pharmacists is found at this website: It is called the I-MASK+ Protocol. Visit regularly for updates—The dosing in the protocol may be updated as further scientific studies emerge !

    Taken from the website:

    “In October 2020, the FLCCC Alliance developed a prophylactic and early outpatient combination treatment protocol for COVID-19 called I-Mask+. It’s centered around IVERMECTIN, a well-known, FDA-approved anti-parasite drug that has been used successfully for more than four decades to treat onchocerciasis “river blindness” and other parasitic diseases. It is one of the safest drugs known. It is on the WHO’s list of essential medicines, has been given 3.7 billion times around the globe, and won the Nobel prize for its global and historic impacts in eradicating endemic parasitic infections in many parts of the world. Our medical Discovery of a rapidly growing published medical evidence base demonstrating its unique and highly potent ability to inhibit SARS-CoV-2 replication and to suppress inflammation, prompted our team to use ivermectin for prevention and treatment in all stages of COVID-19.”

  2. I will not complain, l have one child at home and was denied twice for food stamps. I have been out of work since March 17th 2020. I believe if you are unemployed you should be entitled to food stamps and Medicaid coverage. Especially with the food prices sky rocking at this time. Keep praying, keep living your family and remain safe.

  3. When my dad told me about Ronald Reagan's "a rising tide lifts all boats" tax reform, even AS A CHILD I knew we'd be here. I knew that people love their money and love love LOVE the idea of amassing millions…and sure enough, they did. Nowadays it's so hard for 99% of Americans to have enough money in the bank to GET US BY in an emergency. And so this story is sadly common. Let's call on congress to CRACK THE CODE, so we all can enjoy the American dream of financial stability with less pain and suffering.

  4. Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples: “The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. So you must be careful to do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach. They tie up heavy, cumbersome loads and put them on other people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them.
    Everything they do is done for people to see: They make their phylacteries wide and the tassels on their garments long; they love the place of honor at banquets and the most important seats in the synagogues; they love to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces and to be called ‘Rabbi’ by others.
    “But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher, and you are all brothers. And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven. Nor are you to be called instructors, for you have one Instructor, the Messiah. The greatest among you will be your servant. For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted".
    Matthew 23 NIV

    You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything, in Heaven above or in the Earth beneath, or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents up to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.

    If my people who are called by my name, humble themselves and pray, AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS, I will hear from Heaven, will forgive their sins, and will heal their land.

    And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

    This, then, is how you should pray:

    Our Father in heaven,
    hallowed be your name,
    your kingdom come,
    your will be done,
    on earth as it is in heaven.
    Give us today our daily bread.
    And forgive us our debts,
    as we also have forgiven our debtors.
    And lead us not into temptation,
    but deliver us from the evil one.

    For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

    "Matthew 5-7 NIV Bible Gateway", we can use google search.
    These are the teachings,
    The Righteousness of our Lord Jesus Christ our God.
    REPENT, and start doing what is right.
    If you abide my teachings, you are really my disciples; then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.

    A time is coming and has now come, that the true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and Truth. God is Spirit, so his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and Truth; they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.

    In the New Heaven and New Earth,
    only Righteousness dwells.
    May the Spirit of our Lord Jesus Christ our God be with you all.

  5. Here We Go Again People Donald The Virus Trump Strikes Again With His Catastrophic Leftovers from the deadliest day in memorial day and biggest mistake in United States History that changed are way of life forever and caused the Worst Crisis in Modern history to America and the World and pushed are resources government and medical care to the breaking point on unimaginable levels never seen before

  6. It's not that hard to get snap. You only have to go back 6 months on your employment history. They don't want anything more than a year old. They want to know your income now and what your bills are.

  7. What is the name of the federal program to help feed kids at home? Mine have been at home all year and if they were at school they would have free lunch. Six kids (3 teenagers) and now they eat all meals at home instead of breakfast and lunch at school. If you know the name please reply with it.

  8. Did anybody think that and it might have been caused by the Senate and the house not passing a stimulus gifts for people who are in need of losing their cars don't have tags on them because they haven't been money to get them you know a lot of that had to do with them not that not just a president not just a president them not doing their job at helping the people when we were most in need of the sick and not feeling well can't get to getting to work car don't have any tags no gas you know come on give me a break just

  9. Snap needs to snap out of it and use common sense. People are hungry AND hurting to feed themselves, let alone families of 3 or more. This beautiful family has 5 growing children to support and earning under a single person's income. They should not have even had to apply once in a global pandemic much less 4 times denied. This is a disgusting display of inhumanity. Thank God for their local food banks so that though their physical hunger will only be partially satisfied perhaps that can stave off a miniscule amount of the psychological hunger poverty inflicts. Thank you for this story.

  10. They can write a self attessment letter that their employment ended to verify or sign off that the agency has permission to verify. If all fails appeal the snap denial and the state will more than likely approve benefits. Use to write benefits
