LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: The ivermectin hush-up

In one month, from April to May 2021, new COVID-19 cases in New Delhi, India, fell from 24,000 to 1,500. What caused this dramatic turnaround? Ivermectin, which is anathema to Big Vax Inc. (i.e., U.S. health officials, Big Pharma and the mighty mainstream media). Ivermectin is being used extensively and successfully in other countries, including Mexico, Nigeria, Peru, Bangladesh, Bahrain and Slovakia. Contrary to Big Vax, it has been proven safe and puts the skids on COVID-19 quickly, in some cases in just a few hours. Doctors who treat their patients with ivermectin call it the "wonder drug." Big Vax calls it verboten.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Biden's Tulsa speech hateful, divisive

On Tuesday I watched and listened to President Biden's speech in Tulsa, Oklahoma ("Biden visits Tulsa to honor Black victims of 1921 massacre," Web, June 1). It began well enough with the president highlighting the slaughter of Blacks by White residents of the city in 1921. But with a growing sense of bitterness, I listened as the speech changed into the most hateful, divisive, anti-White speech I have ever heard from a president, including Barack Obama. At the end it sounded much like a racial call to arms.

How GiveSendGo is applying Christian principles to our business model and giving hope to the lonely

The events of the past year affected not only the human body, but the soul and spirit as well. First, there came news of a virus half a world away. Before we knew it, the virus was here and suddenly we could no longer go out in public or see loved ones. Then we heard story after story of people living in isolation, falling into hopelessness and depression, and increased rates of suicide from those who believed they had no hope left.

Critical race theory: A dangerous illiberal ideology

America is embroiled in a crisis that will determine the future of liberalism. Liberalism, the tenets of which were embraced by our Founding Fathers and championed by generations of Americans since the creation of our country. But this is not the same liberalism that permeates the modern Democratic Party.

Taking liberty for granted

No one knows if Thomas Jefferson personally uttered those words. They have been widely attributed to him, but they don't appear in any of his writings. If he did not literally utter them, he uttered the sentiments they offer. They remind us not to take liberty for granted.

Putting energy security at risk

On his first day in office, President Biden signed an executive order revoking the Keystone XL pipeline permit, a safe and efficient method of transferring crude oil critical to the future of North American energy independence, putting over 11,000 Americans out of work and raising energy costs for American families during our recovery from the global coronavirus pandemic.
