Colin Powell Was Not Killed or Helped by His COVID-19 Shots

A New Path – Rev. Jim Hetzer

Colin Powell died of COVID-19 complications according to news reports. Mr. Powell had several significant other factors besides COVID-19, including his age and treatment for multiple myeloma cancer. Those treatments lowered his immune system response that made the Pfizer vaccine shots less able to produce antibodies against COVID-19. If ivermectin had been given immediately after it was determined that Colin Powell was infected by COVID-19, there is evidence that the drug would have helped reduce the viral load substantially. It may be that no treatment in any form could have saved his life given all of the circumstances.

Ivermectin, the repurposed antiparasitic drug, has been used extensively around the world and in the US to prevent and treat COVID-19 infections.  14 prophylaxis trials showed an 86% improvement in reducing the viral load from COVID-19.  There was a 66% improvement from early treatment of patients that tested positive for COVID-19 based upon 28 trials. Ivermectin has been given to over 250 million COVID-19 humans to prevent or treat COVID-19 infections around the world.  Where ivermectin was given as an antiparasitic, the incidence of COVID-19 infections in those countries has been dramatically reduced. 

Ivermectin might not have saved Colin Powell from death from COVID-19 infection, but ivermectin is far more effective than any current FDA approved drugs or antibody infusions that were currently available to treat him.  Ivermectin is also significantly better than the proposed Merck antiviral, molnupiravir, in shortening hospital stays.  The Merck submission to the FDA claimed a 47% reduction in deaths in its submittals for an Emergency Use Authorization by the FDA based on a very limited trial sample size and duration.

Ivermectin has been given to three children with recurring cancer on a continuing basis when the standard of care drugs failed to improve their health.  This was not done as a trial; it was done as a necessity to attempt to save these children’s lives.  The same is true for the use of ivermectin in hospital ICUs; the ICU doctors of the Front-Line COVID Critical Care Alliance use ivermectin along with many other drugs and supplements to reduce the deaths of their patients. Their protocols work because they are adapted to meet the challenges of new mutations. The FLCCC Alliance considers vaccines to be one aspect of COVID-19 prevention, with the use of the ivermectin-based protocols as an effective treatment.

If the FDA had issued a BLA certification for the use of ivermectin to treat COVID-19 infections in the US, and if the NIH had issued instructions to doctors treating COVID-19 patients that said ivermectin is a useful adjunct to the vaccines, Colin Powell might still be alive.  As it is, the FDA, CDC, and NIH have launched a huge propaganda campaign to falsely discredit the efficacy and safety of human use of ivermectin produced for the treatment of human patients.

Ivermectin is most effective when used to prevent replication of COVID-19 and to provide early treatment to suppress the increase in viral load leading to hospitalization and to death.  Ivermectin is not used as the sole drug in any of the FLCCC’s protocols.  As the ICU physicians gained experience in dealing with COVID-19, the protocols for treatment have evolved.  The Delta mutation has led to increased dosages of the components of the protocol, and therapeutic plasma exchange (TPE) has been added to the most extreme COVID-19 infections.  The standard hospital ICU protocols do not include ivermectin or many of the other components that these physicians have found reduced deaths in their ICUs.

It is past time to contact members of Congress, state health directors, and news sources to express a desire for the FDA to formally evaluate the 60+ studies done about the efficacy and safety of using ivermectin to prevent and treat COVID-19 infections.  Every day, there is increasing evidence that the use of ivermectin over 250 million times to prevent and treat COVID-19 is working to reduce transmission and deaths.

This is the link to contact health agency managers on a federal and state level, and members of Congress, the White House, and federal research institutions.  Express your interest in supplementing vaccines with a safe and proven effective antiviral drug, which is ivermectin.

We have a responsibility to the people of the US and the world to examine the data on ivermectin and get formal approval of its use to treat patients like Colin Powell whose vaccines cannot work properly because of complications effecting their immune systems.

  1. HCQ works great, too, if given within 72 hours of the start of symptoms, but most docs won’t prescribe it. Some will, and people have to find them before they get sick.

    Backup plan

    We used elderberry concentrate, 50 mg zinc, 2,000 units vit. D, and 1,000 mg vit. C to treat and we cleared symptoms within 24 hours. We began treatment within 48 hours of the start of symptoms.


    1. thecovidpilot, your combinations are different, but they are logical and your results are good. I have been using research done by Penn State University to write an article titled First Principles to Prevent COVID-19 infection that lowers the viral load in the nasal cavities and salivary glands by 99.9%. I appreciate your comments, and suggest that this is another useful approach to stopping the pandemic.


      1. There are many ways to skin the covid cat and it’s wise to have backup plans.

        May ways are based on my own in depth research.

        I stumbled on calcifediol as being superior to D3 for infections. D3 is dilatory and has a short half-life. The liver produces calcifediol from D3, but it takes a long time to raise levels. Months. While you are supplementing, your body is storing D3 in fat cells so there’s a very gradual increase in calcifediol levels.

        Calcifediol us used by immune cells to produce calcitriol, which they use to signal for T cell specialization and to reduce inflammation when the virus is heavily diminished (which blocks cytokine storm).

        The kidneys also use calcitriol to regulate calcium levels, so the immune system would screw up calcium levels if it used calcitriol from the blood.

        But the calcifediol levels have to reach about 40 ng/ml before the immune system will use them to make calcitriol. 50 ng/ml is optimum for general immune health.

        People have decided against HCQ mostly based on the RECOVERY trial of HCQ, which itself made it plain that its results don’t apply to outpatient treatment.

        There’s a 72 hour window after symptom onset where you want to give antivirals.


      2. My D3 is an oil (fat) which is not excreted through the kidneys like many forms of D3. I have not found a reasonable solution for the retention of C, which has a very short residency before excretion. I make a morning tea or organic elderberries and hibiscus that has turmeric and black pepper. I add at least 10,000 IU of D3, 1,000 mg of C to this before drinking. The C is vegetarian based and I drop the D3 oil on the C in hopes of making it more absorbable. Thanks for your coments.


      3. You can get 1 oz of Lindberg Vitamin D3 cholecalciferol from Piping Rock for $11.99 and on sale right now for 25% off. Each drop is 1,000 IU and I just shake the bottle.


      1. I disagree with the AMA about masking, and I’m in field and they are not.

        Masking effectiveness is a physics question, where I am in field.

        The Bazant study drove the coffin nail in the social distancing canard. Distance between the infection source and the infected persons didn’t matter in multiple instances–the study looked at transportation and other situations where people were together.

        Don’t trust the AMA about much of anything–they have been against patients’ interests for years because they have been in the pocket of pharma. Doctors are ditching them for the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons more and more.


      2. The proof masks and socially distancing work is found in the decrease of serious flu cases in 2020. Here’s some science for you to consider. Single layer non-woven masks filter particles bigger than 0.3 microns. I have a 3-ply mask with the center non-woven layer heat bonded to stop 0.1 micron particles, which research has established as the particle size of the virus. I agree with most of your comment.
