2018 – Present
(Ryan DeLarme) Ivermectin, an anti-parasitic drug that’s been around for over 40 years, has been tested and used in the treatment of COVID since as early as last year but has only just recently come into the mainstream.

The news cycles have taken a momentary pause on their usual incessant fear mongering to cover the highly controversial situation in Afghanistan. Joe Biden, or rather his puppet masters, have decided to pull the troops from the graveyard of empires. The backwards nature of the withdrawal has resulted in the immediate take over of the Afghan government by the Taliban.
