“I Knew It Was Wrong,” I Saved My Husband’s Life With Ivermectin

BY Herschel Smith
2 years ago


Florida hospitals, like the Mayo Clinic, have a COVID protocol for their patients with the Bat-Stew Flu, and ivermectin isn’t part of it. Balbona is a big believer in ivermectin. He alleges he has saved “dozens and dozens” of people suffering from the Chinese Sneeze using the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC) recommendations, with a few modifications based on each patient. The FLCCC treatment calls for, in part, ivermectin.

But hospitals receive federal money for treating COVID patients IF they use treatments outlined in the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. Ivermectin isn’t a part of that treatment.

Families have gone to court hoping a judge will side with them and allow ivermectin to be used with their loved ones, most of whom are seriously ill (death panels, anyone?). Sometimes that works out. When it doesn’t, some have resorted to sneaking ivermectin into hospitals and administering it themselves.

An anonymous woman recently contacted Dr. Balbona regarding her husband who was hospitalized with COVID.

“The husband was very ill,” Dr. Balbona told the Epoch Times. “He’s in his 50s, a big strong guy. She called me desperate because they [the hospital] gave him remdesivir and she made them stop it, and he started getting worse and worse. And his oxygen demand went up.”

Balbona told the woman he could care for her husband once she got him out of the hospital. He wrote her prescriptions for the meds she would need. She filled them out, snuck them into the hospital, and gave them to her husband. That was on Friday. By Tuesday he was well enough to be discharged from the hospital.

“The people who snuck in the ivermectin, they are scared to death,” Balbona stated. “She is sure that the government is going to find out who she is and possibly arrest her for giving medications not approved by the hospital.”

“I did it,” the anonymous woman told Dr. Balbona. “I knew it was wrong. I don’t know what the penalties are. What could they do to me?”

Did you catch the bolded section?  This is one big reason doctors and hospital administrations are so reluctant to use Ivermectin, along with the fact that state boards will take their license.  This is about money – money from the FedGov, and money for hospitals and big Pharma.

The woman’s sentiments are ridiculous to the point of absurdity.  “I knew it was wrong.”  What part was wrong – saving the life of her husband?  Using an unapproved treatment?  Who disapproves, and do they have the best interest of her husband at heart?  Does she owe the truth to her enemies?  Did she ponder any of these questions?

This redounds to awful education and training, and could possibly be the fault of her church.  If you want to understand just how bad teaching is today, find a Christian and ask him or her the following question: “Was Rahab’s lie a sin?”

Even the biblical commentaries dance around this issue to the point of absurdity.  “Well, the lie was a sin, but God used it for good … ” Blah Blah Blah.

Balderdash and poppycock and nonsense and blather and rubbish and stupid pastors.

Rushdoony deals with this in The Institutes of Biblical Law.  Among other things, he says “There is not the slightest hint anywhere in the Bible that any aspect of her defense of the Hebrew spies is in some way suspect … legalism runs deep in the rebellious hearts of men.”

Her deception of the hospital was an act of faith, it saved her husband, it was approved by God, and like Rahab, her lie was justified.  Her enemies didn’t deserve the truth.

Just stop with the notions that she owed fealty to the government over her husband’s medical care.  She didn’t, and her actions weren’t “wrong,” as she put it.

And please, please, please people, leave poor churches and get sound theological training.

    Hospitals are a danger to your health as everything is corrupted and destroyed by egalitarianism in Chiquitastan.
    Sadly this includes the rock n’ roll good time churches that just love the tax free status and importing newcomers for the cash money under the blanket of charities.
    Ivermectin is low cost and no one gets rich off of it and didn’t Emmanuel Trumpstein recommend it two years ago when the Great Hysteria got rolling thanks to the enemedia and fake doctored footage.

    The word is enjoined. Does “Thou shalt not kill.” Mean that you shall not allow the killing of the innocent? Of course it does. What the cinnamon toast could it otherwise mean?!?!?!

    Failure to understand this is the result of the hyper-personalization of bible application. Everything, these phony churches teach them, is for their little personal life of inner feelings with their pet friend Jesus.

    Ok, let’s get technical. The man, ordained as head of God’s creation called family is the protector, and therefore, the man is the head under God, according to and within God’s law, for that family’s HEALTH, safety, and wellbeing among many other things. In his absence it was 100 percent not only her right, and not only her personal obligation to her husband, but it was her duty to God Almighty to save her husband!!!

    Speaking of bad bible teaching: what about exodus 2 where most churches teach that Moses defense of his fellow Hebrew against the Egyptian slave overseer was murder.

    These same churches deify Lincoln (who killed 1 million of his own people) for, they claim, freeing the slaves. And these same churches deify America for freeing the “Jews” from Hitler…BUT Moses is a murderer for trying to free his people from slavery?

    Do they not know that the Hebrews ended up “stealing” all the wealth they could carry and God killed the entire Egyptian army, the mightiest in the world at that time? The bible says that the children of Israel went out with a high hand!!!

    And, if Moses committed murder why did he NOT suffer one single thing from God for it? Moses went and raised a flock and made big money and had a great life…while it was his fellow Hebrews that suffered 40 more years of the most brutal slavery for failure to understand that a leader was among them.

    Could it be that Moses looked around because…wait for it…he didn’t want pharaoh to find out he was commiting “treason” to save his people. Just a few verses later when pharaoh finds out, pharaoh wants Moses hunted down and killed. duh duh and duh.

    I used to think a lit of the ‘stuff’ I was hearing about schools dumbing people down was fearmongering. I went to a public school, learned a lot, including critical thinking…
    The longer I engage with the public, the more I realize I did have it better than most. Folks is stupid… You’re 112% correct, this notion our populace is wrapped up in, that you need permission to go about your life, its seriously fucked up, anf being exploited.

    This brave woman lived the line “no one is coming to save you.”
    This is truly horrible, evil even perhaps.
    When does the discussion of holding those responsible begin?
    Some are living right here among us, off of our very backs.
    How many more of our neighbors, coworkers, friends or family must suffer and die?

    Like Carlin said: ” Just imagine how dumb the average person is and know that half of them are dumber than that”.

    If you send your child to public school today you are guilty of severe child abuse.

    Oh well. I have made this mistake about two or three times in my 6000 posts or so.

    It can’t be undone now because the URL is a function of the post title.

    On the other hand, I think I might be able to update the title WITHOUT updating the URL.

    I’m saying more than that. I’m saying it isn’t necessary to redefine what Rahab said as NOT a lie.

    Rahab lied. I’ll say it again. Rahab lied. What she said was a lie.

    And it wasn’t a sin. It was a righteous act.

  10. On January 28, 2022 at 1:09 pm, Fred said:

    Well ok, but Moses still didn’t murder, it was defense of the less able.

  11. On January 28, 2022 at 1:31 pm, Herschel Smith said:

    I understand. But it isn’t even necessary to define ‘murder’ with words (as opposed to, say ‘kill’) because in order to understand the moral law, God has given us the case law in the rest of Exodus, Lev and Deut).

    The moral law is explained by the case law. Kill or murder, no difference. Look to how it is applied.

    The case law explains that self defense isn’t disallowed. Lying in wait for someone because you hate them is not allowed.

    ALWAYS look to the case law.

  12. On January 28, 2022 at 4:14 pm, Fred said:

    And not only case law in the OT, but where an instance in the OT is further explained in the NT, it is the NT that always gives the proper interpretation of the OT.

    Here is the NT giving the authoritative interpretation of Moses killing the slave master:
    “23 And when he was full forty years old, it came into his heart to visit his brethren the children of Israel. 24 And seeing one of them suffer wrong, he defended him, and avenged him that was oppressed, and smote the Egyptian: 25 For he supposed his brethren would have understood how that God by his hand would deliver them: but they understood not.” Acts 7:23-25

    Ps. I’m not arguing murder vs kill. For some reason people can’t understand this, but that wasn’t my point. But I do get a little tired of telling people that defense of life is not killing, it’s preservation of life.

    many years ago, home to the world from the war; off the Blue Ball Express from Kaneohe to LAX…
    walking through terminal 5 at LAX, a good sized group of Marines were ‘met’ (so to speak) by some protesters – about our age, but only chronologically – and a muu muu draped ‘Mama Cass’ lookalike, walked up to one of the finest men I served with, Sgt. Rod Palmer; and spit in his face, and screaming, said “you are a murderer!”. I thought right then I was about witness a murder. But, Sarge stopped, stood there staring at her – without wiping his face – and said “young lady, I am a killer, not a murderer. There is a difference.” Yes, Scripturally and in life, there is indeed a difference. God bless you in the crucible ahead.

    In re: Rahab’s lie. Herschel – I really appreciate your perspective.

    When is a lie – or other resistance to authority – not a sin? When committed:

    – to protect the innocent;
    – to resist illegitimate authority;
    – not for personal benefit, but to benefit others;
    – under risk of excessive punishment: the righteous liar – if discovered – will be punished as much or more so than the innocent being protected.

    Examples: Hebrew midwives to killing male Hebrew babies; hiding Jews or Resistance fighters in the attic.

    The woman’s act to bring Ivermectin to the hospital was righteous.

    I cannot find a single Christian pastor who understands this. “But Rahab lied!” “So what if she did? She didn’t sin in doing so.”

  16. On January 30, 2022 at 9:00 am, Fred said:

    Deception is also a common tactic of war throughout the OT. Rahabs lie was a tactic of war knowing the Hebrews were justified in the coming attack on the city.

    There are just wars and unjust wars.
