The FDA has an “Ultra Vires” Problem
- By Joyce Kamen - V.P. with FLCCC
An appeals court found that the FDA overstepped its authority in a public campaign against treating COVID-19 with the anti-parasite drug ivermectin.
“So let me get this straight,” I said to members of our FLCCC marketing team as we met on a Zoom call one morning in the spring of 2022. “Three doctors—including our Dr. Marik— are suing the FDA? Can they even do that?”
“Well, whether they can or not remains to be seen,” said a member of the team. “But yes, their suit is about to be filed.”
Whoa. This looked to me like the plaintiffs were about to grab a tiger by the tail. Three doctors—Robert Apter, MD, Mary Talley Bowden, MD, and FLCCC co-founder, Paul E. Marik, MD—filed suit against the FDA in the U.S. District Court on June 2, 2022. In the suit, the three alleged that the FDA acted “ultra vires” —outside of its authority—to illegally interfere with the doctors’ ability to practice medicine because of the FDA’s aggressive public media campaign to stop the prescribing of ivermectin for the prevention and treatment of COVID-19.
Of 'Rich Men North of Richmond' and Social Media Censors

In a new op-ed, Pierre Kory writes about how pernicious censorship practices have subverted the independent exchange of ideas that has defined medical practice for 1,000 years.
With COVID-19 cases rising again, President Biden is recommending new vaccines. Plus, masking is making a comeback despite an NIH study that found prolonged use of N95 masks exposes users to harmful chemicals.
FLCCC is steadfast in its advocacy against these measures. COVID is a highly preventable and treatable condition, while the potential risk of adverse vaccine events is significant. Will we be censored on social media for raising these concerns?
Writing in RealClearPolicy, Dr. Pierre Kory discusses our experience with relentless censorship in the last few years across mainstream media, communications, and marketing channels.
COVID is On the Rise Again: Here’s Why You Shouldn’t Panic
- By Yusuf JP Saleeby MD & Dr. Keith Berkowitz - The FLCCC Alliance Community
A new COVID variant is gaining ground in the United States. You’ve probably been hearing about it in the news, and we’ve certainly been seeing it in our patients in recent weeks. Here’s what you need to know about it, how to protect yourself, and how to treat it if you do get sick.
First of all, DO NOT PANIC.
EG.5 — also known as the "Eris" variant — certainly seems to be highly contagious, but from what we’re seeing it is less virulent. In other words, it’s a lot like the Omicron variants we’ve seen recently — lots of cases, but not a lot of extreme illness or hospitalization.
If you’ve been exposed to the virus before, you likely have some natural ability to fight it off. We are finding that patients who have not been previously exposed are the ones hit hardest right now.
Could Mask Mandates and COVID Hysteria be Making a Comeback?
- By Peter LaBarbera - WND
'I will never comply with any new mandates, lockdowns and will not be wearing that stupid mask'
With new COVID variants, including BA.2.86 and EG.5, in the news, the same media and activists on the Left who were most fanatical about masks and other heavy-handed COVID policies during the pandemic are now pushing mask mandates again.
Conservatives warned it could be a precursor to a return to oppression in the name of fighting COVID, and vowed collectively not to "comply."
Booze Out, Pot In
- By Anne Schlafly, Eagle Forum Chairman
Americans have radically changed their habits on recreational drugs. Today, 22 percent of Americans currently use marijuana, 20 percent regularly drink alcohol, and 11 percent use tobacco, according to a Marist Poll on “Weed and the American Family.”
This change in habits reflect not only the social acceptance of marijuana, but also the ignorance of the many harms of marijuana. Possession of marijuana is still a federal crime because it is a harmful drug. Marijuana has never been approved by the Food and Drug Administration.
Yet, many people are under the perception that marijuana has health benefits and that marijuana is less harmful than either alcohol or tobacco.
“The Families of Those Who Died Unnecessarily Call for Justice.” Will You Give It to Them?
- By Joyce Kamen - V.P. with FLCCC
The unlawful destruction of a medical research program in Memphis, Tennessee in the early 2000s doomed the lives of millions.
Several months ago, I received an email from Dr. G. Umberto Meduri, a brilliant and prolific research scientist who is recognized by his peers as the global expert on the study and use of corticosteroids in acute respiratory illnesses. In the email, Dr. Meduri—who is a co-founder of the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC)—attached a “still confidential” document to the email detailing the shocking story of the targeted destruction —between 2001-2002 — of the Memphis Lung Research Program (MLRP), of which Dr. Meduri was the director.
FDA Approves Lab-grown “Meat” Pushed by Globalists — but Is It Safe?
- By Paul Dragu - The New American
The FDA recently green-lighted lab-grown chicken “meat.” Producers claim their products offer environmentally friendly and cruelty-free meat options, but the opposite seems to be true about this product, which is backed by the globalists at the World Economic Forum and others. More importantly — is it even safe?
