  1. Why is the St. Lucia Times blocking my post linking to Dr. Tess Lawrie’s Zoom call with Dr. Andrew Hill? During that call she was begging him to reveal who had influenced him to change his advocacy for the use of Ivermectin to fight Covid-19. Later, it turns out he received US$40 million from UNITAID on behalf of the University of Liverpool. UNITAID received billions of dollars from the Bill & Melinda Gates foundation, when Dr. Andrew Hill was one of their chief medical advisers.

    Are you protecting the local government and medical authorities, who might have been influenced to reject Ivermectin’s use in St. Lucia, in exchange for free supplies of the experimental gene therapy masquerading as a vaccine?

    Why aren’t we hearing from our local medical authorities about the numerous adverse effects of the Pfizer jabs, the test results of which Pfizer was forced to release recently, after they had sought to keep them from public scrutiny for 75 years?

    Are our local medical authorities corrupt or are they just grossly incompetent?
