John 11:26 – “And everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die.”
I have some sad news this week and a message of love and hope. My loving father passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family that loved him. Dad was a wonderful and remarkably kind man who helped Mom raise us crazy Gosar siblings, which wasn’t always easy. I will miss Dad, but I am comforted in knowing I got to say good-bye to my father one last time and know he is in heaven and has not died, rather has been granted ever-lasting life with Jesus. He was a devout Christian and had no fear of death. You were so important to Mom and our family. I love you, Dad. I can’t put into words what you mean to me. Until we meet again.
“For in this way there will be richly provided for you an entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” Peter 1:11
Congress Punts on its Job, Raises Debt Ceiling…AGAIN.
This week, Speaker Nancy Pelosi marched members of the House of Representatives back to D.C. for one day to vote once again to raise the debt ceiling until December. In my time in Congress, I have witnessed a complete inability of my colleagues to agree on any real effort to reduce spending and reduce borrowing. I am concerned that the socialists in power want an economic collapse so they can use “emergency” powers to enact even more harmful and lunatic policies that are destroying our county.
Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi need to issue new debt so they can spend another $5.5 trillion on socialist and wasteful programs. With no plan to balance the budget or cut wasteful spending to get our fiscal house in order, I joined every single Republican Member of Congress in voting against this harmful fiscal policy, although I did so by proxy as I was with my ailing father at the time.
By the way, as I mentioned in last week’s newsletter, Only Congress has the power to raise debt ceiling. But sneaky Speaker Pelosi and House Democrats are proposing to change the rules to allow the Secretary of the Department of Treasury to raise the debt ceiling ALONE, without the need for Congress to sign off. This would be even more disastrous as the Secretary of the Treasury is not an elected official and is not responsible to anyone. At least today we know who is voting to destroy our country because we have their votes.
CNN and others are full of Horse Sh$t! Turns Out that Ivermectin is NOT just “Horse Dewormer”
We have reached a stage in our country where government agencies and corporate media work together, in true Soviet style, to perpetuate propaganda, lies and misinformation. For that reason, rational people no longer watch CNN or read the Arizona Republic, both legacy media outlets that routinely provide misinformation and propaganda in support of the far Left.
The drug Ivermectin is the latest example. Ivermectin is a drug prescribed by doctors to HUMANS (not horses) to treat parasitic infections. Let me share with you a 2021 peer reviewed medical report on Ivermectin, available in PUBMED, the gold standard for medical research:
“In 2015, the Nobel Committee for Physiology or Medicine, in its only award for treatments of infectious diseases since six decades prior, honored the discovery of ivermectin (IVM), a multifaceted drug deployed against some of the world's most devastating tropical diseases. Since March 2020, when IVM was first used against a new global scourge, COVID-19, more than 20 randomized clinical trials (RCTs) have tracked such inpatient and outpatient treatments. Six of seven meta-analyses of IVM treatment RCTs reporting in 2021 found notable reductions in COVID-19 fatalities, with a mean 31% relative risk of mortality vs. controls. During mass IVM treatments in Peru, excess deaths fell by a mean of 74% over 30 days in its ten states with the most extensive treatments. Reductions in deaths correlated with the extent of IVM distributions in all 25 states with p < 0.002. Sharp reductions in morbidity using IVM were also observed in two animal models, of SARS-CoV-2 and a related betacoronavirus. The indicated biological mechanism of IVM, competitive binding with SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, is likely non-epitope specific, possibly yielding full efficacy against emerging viral mutant strains.
A. Santin, et. al, “Ivermectin: a multifaceted drug of Nobel prize-honored distinction with indicated efficacy against a new global scourge, COVID-19”, National Journal of New Microbes and New Infections. (August 3, 2021).
To translate the medical jargon, (1) Ivermectin is a Nobel prize winning miracle drug for human beings, not horses and (2) the country of Peru experimented with using Ivermectin to treat COVID-19 (Wuhan Flu) and deaths from COVID-19 were reduced by 74% in 30 days. Other countries have similar results.
Yet here in the United States, Dr. Fauci, the Center for Disease Control and the Far-Left media, mock Ivermectin as a “horse” drug and seek to ban its use then punish doctors who speak favorably of it. You will also get banned on social media if you talk about Ivermectin positively and truthfully.
In late August, almost a month after the Ivermectin global study (linked above) proved Ivermectin reduced death by 74%, this is what the Arizona Republic put out as propaganda—deadly propaganda that could easily result in the unnecessary deaths of hundreds or thousands of Arizonans:
“That’s how it is with Ivermectin. All we know about it, for now, is that it’s used on animals and can be extremely dangerous for humans. Taking it will not protect you from COVID-19. But it will make you a horse’s ass.” Arizona Republic, “Taking equine medication for COVID-19? Please, don't be a horse's $%#” (Aug. 24, 2021)
It is apparent the Arizona Republic is lying about Ivermectin and attempting to stop people from asking about it with their doctor. How many deaths has this led to since August 24? If you have not done so already, do not subscribe to a propaganda outfit like this company and do not read their articles online (which could result in money for them). It could literally cost you or someone you love their lives. In my view, this company supports leftist ideologues and the destruction of Arizona and, as President Trump has noted, is the enemy of the people.
Ivermectin has shown to be a safe and effective drug treatment in combating COVID-19 and is a potential alternative to the shot, but without the extreme side-effects. In fact, studies in January 2021 found that there is growing medical evidence demonstrating Ivermectin’s “unique and highly potent ability to inhibit SARS and suppress inflammation” prompting doctors to prescribe the drug for prevention and treatment in all stages of COVID-19.
Additionally, Dr. Pierre Kory, a renown Wisconsin pulmonary care specialist, testified at a Senate Hearing in December 2020 that Ivermectin is a proven wonder drug to treat COVID-19.
TRIVIA TIME: Here’s a fun fact that I bet you didn’t know: between 100-200 United States Congress Members plus many more staff with COVID-19 were treated over the past 15 months with … Ivermectin. If it is good enough for members of Congress, it is good enough for you and your family. Yet few of these members who used the drug to save their life speak up publicly in its defense against the lies of the Arizona Republic and CNN.
TRIVIA TIME 2: Here’s something else I bet you didn’t know: on January 14, 2021, the National Institutes of Health changed their recommendation for the use of Ivermectin in COVID-19 from “against” to “neutral.” Much of this was ignored by the liberal media, many in the medical community and Big-Pharma because it’s not the science you were told you had to believe.
Unfortunately, Ivermectin continues to be the subject of non-stop attacks and misinformation from the Liberal Left and Big-Pharma to suppress its effectiveness.
THE JOE ROGAN EXPERIENCE: The Joe Rogan Experience is a popular podcast hosted by Joe Rogan, and in this case, it is also quite literally an episode about his experience with COVID and Ivermectin.
This week, Joe Rogan confronted Fake News CNN’s chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta over CNN’s false claims that Ivermectin is a dangerous horse dewormer and should not be used to treat COVID-19. Gupta was forced to admit he and others have been lying. Here’s the transcript of the interview:
Q. "Does it bother you that the network you work for out and out lied, just outright lied about me taking horse dewormer?" Rogan grilled Gupta.
A. "They shouldn't have said that," Gupta admitted.
Q. "Why did they do that?" Rogan asked.
A. "I don't know," Gupta responded.
Q. "You didn't ask? You're the medical guy over there!" Rogan exclaimed.
A. "I didn't ask," Gupta said. "I should've asked before coming on this podcast."
When directly confronted, Dr. Gupta had to shamefully admit he had been lying about Ivermectin, as had CNN. When asked why, he lamely said “I don’t know.” This is quackery, dangerous quackery.
Bottom line: There is a ton of peer reviewed research, and one Nobel prize, supporting the efficacy of Ivermectin. Talk to your doctor about it. Do not listen to the Arizona Republic or CNN as you could needlessly die.
Another Attack on Second Amendment Rights
This week I joined my colleague and sent a letter to Mr. Biden questioning his intention to have the United States rejoin the United Nations Arms Trade (ATT), an international agreement to regulate trade in firearms. Rejoining the ATT would cede American sovereignty and constitutional protections to a misguided and overbearing international tribunal of countries that long ago gave up their citizens right to self-defense. In 2013, efforts by former President Obama to join the ATT failed to win Senate ratification because it did not sufficiently protect Second Amendment rights or exempt civilian firearms from its scope.
The same concerns remain today as they did in 2013, the most concerning of which is the continued lack of protection for lawful gun ownership which threatens the rights afforded to Americans under the Second Amendment. The United States should never subject our constitutional right to bear arms to international interference.
BREAKING: INFLATION AT A 40 Year High
The Biden administration has completely wrecked the best economy many people had ever lived through in their lives. The four years under President Trump gave us record employment, record trade, record manufacturing and record wage growth, and very low inflation.
Today, we live with fuel shortages and high prices, food shortages and “empty shelves” (remember when we read about Venzeula having empty shelves and fuel shortages) and inflation is at a record pace. Inflation reduces all our buying power and makes everyone poorer.
Bidinflation Hits Gasoline Prices, Biden Begs OPEC for Help
Also this week, in light of gas prices increasing 42.1% since Mr. Biden assumed office, I joined many of my Republican colleagues and sent another letter to Mr. Biden urging him to reverse his America-Last agenda that is emboldening adversarial foreign energy producers. Rising gasoline prices are direct result of the Biden administration’s efforts to decrease access to American energy resources while begging OPEC nations with tin cup in hand to increase production to accommodate domestic energy demand.
Instead, eliminating barriers to American-produced oil and natural gas and its infrastructure will increase American economic and job growth, enhance national and energy security, and lower energy prices for American families. It will also result in reduced global emissions as the United States produces energy with an environmental responsibility that exceeds those of other nations upon which Mr. Biden wishes for America to rely.
Ever wonder why gas prices are so high? Because of the number of anti-American energy policies that Mr. Biden and congressional Democrats are pushing, including cancelling the Keystone XL pipeline; proposing to ban domestic fracking; declaring a moratorium on oil and natural gas leases on Federal lands and waters; and changing tax law to harm domestic production.
It’s no wonder why we are once again dependent on OPEC nations to meet our energy needs.

THOUSANDS OF FLIGHTS CANCELLED
Last week thousands of flights from Southwest Airlines and American Airlines were cancelled, with Arizona and Florida being hit the hardest. Some people say it was a pilot and flight attendant “sick out” protesting the COVID-19 shot mandates. The airlines reported it was due to “weather.”
What do you think? The weather in Florida and Arizona then was pretty good, sunny, partly cloudy, a little rain in Florida on one day, but no plane altering storms.
