Who is John Skerritt? (head of TGA) Why has he banned Ivermectin?

He is head of the TGA, but did you know he has a bachelor’s degree in Science, majoring in Agriculture?. He is not a medical doctor and has never treated any patients. He has no clinical experience with covid19. He has a PhD in Pharmacology but immediately after that, for 20 years wrote all his papers on wheat. An expert on wheat is approving vaccines and making decisions on treatment. Before being appointed to the TGA position in 2012, he was deputy secretary of Primary Industries, Victoria. Yes, Agriculture again.

John Skerritt banned Ivermectin

On September 10, 2021, Professor John Skerritt made it no longer possible for GP’s in Australia to prescribe ivermectin for covid19. Up until that day, they were able to prescribe off-label. The TGA statement can be found here:


An excellent review of this decision by England’s Dr John Campbell is here;

The first reason given on the government website, for this extraordinary announcement was;

“The Department is concerned that there are a number of significant public health risks associated with this practice including, for example, that persons taking ivermectin in an effort to prevent COVID-19 consider themselves to be protected against the disease, elect not to be vaccinated as part of the national COVID-19 vaccination program, and chose not to get tested or seek medical care if they experience symptoms. “

So, it’s dangerous because it creates vaccine hesitancy?

Australian Trial proved Ivermectin Triple Therapy works.

What happened in the lead up to this extraordinary decision on September 10?

Well, there was a group of Australian doctors treating patients in Sydney and Melbourne in July, August, and September with a protocol called the Ivermectin Triple Therapy (ITT). A combination of repurposed drugs, ivermectin, doxycycline, and zinc. It was an amazing success.

600 patients treated, and only 5 admitted to hospital and zero deaths.

The equivalent control group in Australia of 600 people, not treated with triple therapy, resulted in 70 admitted to hospital and 6 deaths.

This is real-world data.

here’s the trial paper;

Did John Skerritt know about this Australian trial? Was that a factor in the September 10 decision?

John Skerritt declares low dosage of Ivermectin is dangerous.

Well, let’s look at professor Skerritt’s answers to Senator Rennick’s questions on the use of ivermectin for covid19 in the senate estimates committee hearing on October 27.


At this hearing, John Skerritt stated that “3 – 5 mg per day is the recommended dose” and anything higher is dangerous. He referred to alleged cases of poisoning in the USA but does not state the dosage used in these incidents or what form of ivermectin was used.

The current recommended dose for Strongyloides or scabies in Australia is 200ug/kg body weight, so a 90kg man would take 18 mg of ivermectin per day.  This means 3-5 mg per day is not the recommended ivermectin dose currently in Australia. You would have to weigh only 15 kg to be on that dose. John Skerritt’s statement in this hearing was false.

Senator Rennick also said that  Merck, the old manufacturer of ivermectin, had no safety concerns in 2013 for ranges of 30 – 120 mg. These are far greater dosages than those quoted by John Skerritt. See here at the TGA’s own website, on page 18.


“…… showed good tolerability and no safety concerns at doses ranging from 30 to 120 mg, that is, up to 10 times the proposed dose of 200 µg/kg for treatment of scabies’’

At present, Australia, 20 months into this pandemic, still only has an early treatment protocol of “take Panadol and wait till you can’t breathe, then call the ambulance”.

In other words, no treatment.

What is the real reason that John Skerritt has banned the use of ivermectin for covid19 in Australia?

    Long Lunch: Big Pharma payments to doctors
    By Michael West
    October 15, 2018
    Why did drug giant Bayer give $4.3 million to doctors? Why did Sanofi give $3.3 million, or Amgen $3.3 million, Pfizer $2.9 million or AstraZeneca $2.5 million? Michael West reports on Big Pharma payments to doctors.
    The common refrain from the Big Pharma lobby, when challenged about the magnitude of the entertainment and travel expenses the industry lavishes upon its clients, is that there is nothing wrong with taking a doctor out to lunch. It’s about education, they say.
    According to an investigation by michaelwest.com.au, there is an awful lot of “education” going on in Australia’s medical community: first-class “education”, “education” over rare wines, “education” in exotic foreign climes.
    Bayer alone tipped in $3.3 million over an 18 month period for doctors’ travel expenses.
    Information about doctors’ financial benefits from the giants of the global pharmaceutical industry was not disclosed until an initiative in 2015 whereby the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (ACCC) ordered the industry lobby group, Medicines Australia, to make the information available online.
    We have sorted and “deduped” this information. There were issues with the data which often meant it was unclear which doctors were receiving which benefits. Bristol-Myers Squib did not produce “CSV” files, only PDFs which made its disclosures hard to evaluate. Upon request, BMS provided the CSV files and said they were working hard to fix the problem with Medicines Australia.
    The patterns are clear however. Big Pharma spent almost $40 million on doctors between October 2016 and April 2018. Here is the spend by company:

    Congress invests big in pharmaceutical, tech stocks

    The story is part of a series about lawmakers’ personal financial disclosures. OpenSecrets recently updated its personal finances database to include data from lawmakers’ most recent filings released last May.
    Congress is tasked with regulating the most powerful and influential industries in the private sector. But lawmakers could lose massive chunks of their personal wealth if their legislation hurts those companies’ bottom lines.
    In the most recent financial disclosures filed last year, lawmakers reported holding tens of millions of dollars in tech and pharmaceutical stocks. Congress continued to invest in these companies even as it debated how to deal with rising drug prices and tech giants’ intrusions of privacy.
    Some lawmakers like to trade stocks. That fact became evident when Sens. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) and Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.) unloaded stocks after attending a private briefing that underscored the looming danger of COVID-19. Pharmaceutical companies are among lawmakers’ favorite stocks. As of the most recent financial disclosures, over 50 lawmakers reported investing upwards of six figures in the pharmaceutical and health products industry.
    On the campaign trail, Rep. Joe Kennedy III (D-Mass.) casts himself as a fighter who takes on big pharma. His disclosure shows he’s profited from rising drug prices. Last year, he reported owning up to $2.1 million in stock in pharmaceutical and health products companies in a family trust. Those include industry giants such as Johnson & Johnson, Merck, Abbott Laboratories, Eli Lilly & Co and Pfizer.
    Kennedy, who is challenging Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.), has also come under scrutiny for owning millions in oil company stock while running on climate issues. Kennedy has said he has no control over the assets in his family trust.
    Pfizer is one of the most popular stocks in Congress, with 48 lawmakers placing their bet on the drugmaker that hikes its prices each year. Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.), the second most senior congressman, reported holding between $1 million and $5 million in Pfizer stock. Forty-seven lawmakers reported investing in Johnson & Johnson, despite the drugmaker’s role in the devastating opioid epidemic.
    In addition to pharmaceutical and tech companies, big banks and energy giants are among Congress’ favorite stocks. These figures are from lawmakers’ most recent financial disclosures released in May 2019.

    The CDC’s corrupt history revealed as it pushes mass hysteria to sell dirty vaccines
    Tuesday, April 13, 2021 by: S.D. Wells
    How could it be that we can’t trust the CDC? How could a country so strong and efficient have the regulatory agency for disease control and prevention be so insidious that all they care about today is controlling the populace by actually spreading disease? It’s always all about money and control, and we have a comprehensive timeline of the CDC’s nefarious acts of cruelty and greed, and this timeline dates back to the beginning of the founding of the Center for Damaged Credibility, a.k.a. the CDC. From hoax pandemics to dirty vaccines and biological warfare, the Centers for Disease Control in the USA has a mile-long rap sheet of horrendous crimes, including fraud, felonies and murder, dating back to its founding in Atlanta in 1946.
    An inside look at the evil CDC, beginning in 1946
    The CDC is a for-profit corporation listed on Dun and Bradstreet. They support several corrupt industries dating back to 1946. The CDC is supposed to focus attention on food borne pathogens, environmental health and non-infectious diseases like obesity and diabetes. Coincidentally, there were not many cases of cancer or diabetes to speak of in the United States before the CDC was created. Founded just after WWII in the late 1940s, the CDC was first named the “Communicable Disease Center” and was busy fighting mosquitoes by spraying cancer-causing DDT on six million US homes, all in the name of fighting the malaria ‘pandemic’ of the time. Did the CDC run any safety tests on DDT for the environment, humans, pregnant women, food, anything? Of course they did not or they wouldn’t have used it.
    By 1957, the Center for Damaged Credibility dipped their wick in STD control (sexually transmitted diseases), and widened their efforts to understand more about birth defects, E. coli and biological warfare (yes, they knew back then). Instead of engaging in preventative measures using nutrition, supplements and natural immune system aids, the CDC began what we know today as chronic care management, which means treating symptoms but never preventing or defeating disease. That’s how vaccines came into play.

    Dr. Peter McCullough on COVID Treatments, and Why CDC, FDA Shouldn’t Make Recommendations
    On the premier episode of “Doctors and Scientists” on CHD Live!, Dr. Peter McCullough told viewers the National Institutes of Health, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and U.S. Food and Drug Administration are supposed to serve doctors and patients — not make treatment recommendations.
    By Children’s Health Defense Team
    On the premier episode of “Doctors and Scientists” on CHD Live!, host Brian Hooker, Ph.D., P.E., interviews Dr. Peter McCullough about the U.S. government’s response to the current public health crisis.
    McCullough, one of the premier physicians focused on the early treatment of the COVID-19, has published 46 peer-reviewed papers on COVID.
    “Dr. McCullough is a hero of mine,” said Hooker, Children’s Health Defense chief scientific officer and professor of biology at Simpson University.
    The two discussed various treatment options, including ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine, both of which are increasingly difficult to get prescriptions for, even though, according to McCullough, doctors are free to prescribe them and pharmacies don’t have the right to refuse to fill a patient’s prescription.

    Congress hits FDA, CDC on vaccine conflicts of interest
    Same problem but much worse 21 years later
    Author: Glenn Hess
    WASHINGTON (CNI)–A Congressional committee Wednesday accused the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) of “routine” conflicts of interest by allowing scientists with ties to the drug industry to serve on policy advisory committees.
    A report issued Wednesday by Republican staff members of the House Government Committee concludes that “conflict of interest rules employed by the FDA and the CDC have been weak, enforcement has been lax, and [advisory] committee members with substantial ties to pharmaceutical companies have been given waivers to participate in committee proceedings.”
    In a 10 August letter, Government Committee Chairman Dan Burton (Republican-Indiana) called on Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Donna Shalala to implement reforms to crack down on conflicts of interest on the FDA and CDC committees.
    One panel makes recommendations to the FDA on the approval of new vaccines, while the other advises the CDC on guidelines for the administration of vaccines.
    The House committee staff report found that the majority of members of both committees have financial ties to vaccine manufacturers or hold patents on vaccines under development.
    The report focuses on the advisory committees’ review of the controversial rotavirus vaccine in 1997 and 1998. The drug won unanimous votes of support in both committees.
    But within one year, Wyeth Lederle’s Rotashield vaccine was pulled from the market after it was linked to severe bowel obstructions in more than 100 infants.
    According to the report, three out of the five full-time FDA advisory committee members who voted for the vaccine had financial ties to Wyeth Lederle or two companies developing rival rotavirus vaccines – Merck and SmithKline Beecham. Four out of eight CDC advisory committee members who supported the vaccine had conflicts of interest because of connections with the same companies, according to the Congressional report.
    The staff report concludes that the FDA and CDC advisory committees demonstrated “a lack of vigilance” in their review of the rotavirus vaccine, with the CDC’s committee rushing to approve guidelines for the drug even before the FDA had licensed it.
    In his letter to Shalala, Burton said: “It has become clear over the course of this investigation that the [FDA-CDC advisory panels] are dominated by individuals with close working relationships with the vaccine producers.
    This was never the intent of the Federal Advisory Committee Act, which requires that a diversity of views be represented on advisory committees.”
    An FDA spokeswoman said the agency “goes out of its way” to make sure that members of its advisory committees are acting in an ethical manner. She also noted that there are few infectious disease experts, making crossover with the drug industry likely.

    Institutional corruption of pharmaceuticals and the myth of safe and effective drugs
    From 2013
    Comment > As stated in this Paper from 8 years ago, ’Unless this corruption of regulatory intent is reversed, the situation will continue to deteriorate.’ – that is exactly what has continued to happen. End comment.

    Over the past 35 years, patients have suffered from a largely hidden epidemic of side effects from drugs that usually have few offsetting benefits.
    The pharmaceutical industry has corrupted the practice of medicine through its influence over what drugs are developed, how they are tested, and how medical knowledge is created.
    Since 1906, heavy commercial influence has compromised congressional legislation to protect the public from unsafe drugs.
    The authorization of user fees in 1992 has turned drug companies into the FDA’s prime clients, deepening the regulatory and cultural capture of the agency.
    Industry has demanded shorter average review times and, with less time to thoroughly review evidence, increased hospitalizations and deaths have resulted.
    Meeting the needs of the drug companies has taken priority over meeting the needs of patients.
    Unless this corruption of regulatory intent is reversed, the situation will continue to deteriorate.
    We offer practical suggestions including: separating the funding of clinical trials from their conduct, analysis, and publication; independent FDA leadership; full public funding for all FDA activities; measures to discourage R&D on drugs with few, if any, new clinical benefits; and the creation of a National Drug Safety Board.

    Clive Palmer United Australia Party exposes corrupt big pharma politics and blackmail in NSW
    SEP 15, 2-21
    Posted by Editor, cairnsnews
    CLIVE Palmer has exposed the corrupt role of big pharma companies Pfizer and AstraZeneca behind Gladys Berejiklian’s frantic push for vaccines in NSW.
    In a press conference on Tuesday Palmer dropped a bomb on the NSW Liberals and the corrupt role of a political lobbyist being paid tens of millions of dollars by Pfizer and Astra Zeneca.
    The same lobbyist, says Palmer, controls the Liberal Party in Sydney and is using the threat of the Independent Commission Against Corruption’s (ICAC) inquiries into Gladys Berejiklian to pull her strings and push the vaccines.
    Media and mainstream parties are in a panic, trying to cover up the mounting scandal by attacking Palmer, whose United Australia Party is about to become the biggest political party in Australia by membership.
    Palmer also accused the head of the TGA Prof. John Skerrit, as the chief regulator of drugs in Australia, of being in a “serious conflict of interest” by going on television in a white coat promoting vaccines threatening media owners with withdrawal of advertising if they published stories contrary to government vaccine policy.
    Palmer dropped the bomb when a jabbering journalist tried to push the NSW government’s lies about 1600 “cases” and that people really were dying from COVID-19 and the only way out for locked-down small businesses in NSW was for most of the population to get a double jab. “They can’t open their businesses because the premier’s telling them the only way out is a double jab and that’s what they’re being told,” said the journo.
    “I’d say the premier is lying to them,” Palmer shot back. “And I’d say that she’s under an ICAC inquiry, but a particular lobbyist in Sydney controls the Liberal Party in Sydney and told her the only way she gets out of that inquiry is if she pushes the double jab, and his clients are Astra Zeneca and his clients are Pfizer.”
    At that point the upstart journo butts in again, repeating the nonsense that the only way out for the business owners is the double jab.
    Palmer’s very newsworthy allegation of high-level corruption was too much for the lame-brained scribbler to take in, apparently.

    TGA run by Big Pharma
    FEB 27, 2021
    Posted by Editor, cairns-news
    By Dr Luke Ferst
    We taxpayers are funding two opposing groups with opposing goals. I have had dealings with both entities, the more in-depth association being with the NPS. (National Prescribing Service) The ‘article’ below: WHY ARE WE TAXPAYERS FUNDING OPPOSING GROUPS?
    Question to all MPs. We taxpayers are funding the Therapeutic Goods Administration, which states taxpayers should not have access to information provided by physicians.
    The government ‘officially’ states we taxpayers are duty bound to check all information regarding our healthcare.
    We taxpayers fund the NPS to ensure exactly that. WHICH MUST GO? TGA or NPS?
    The TGA, according to its own website “Does Not Regulate Healthcare Professionals”.
    Therefore, it cannot ‘review’ licensed physicians no matter how much it tries to give that impression. See: https://www.tga.gov.au/what-tga-doesnt-do
    1. However, a recent ABC news article states, “The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has banned Australian doctors from prescribing the drug to combat COVID-19”. Link: https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-02-22/melbourne-doctors-under-review-hydroxychloroquine/13179248 If the article is accurate, then ‘Houston, we have a problem’.
    The TGA receives taxpayer funds yet by attempting in any way to restrict medical information reaching the Australian public, it opposes another taxpayer funded department, risking putting one or both of those entities heads on the chopping block.
    Craig Kelly might want to know this information.
    2. The Australian Taxpayer funded TGA seeks to prevent experienced medical professionals from sharing their vast healthcare knowledge, yet at the same time taxpayers’ money funds the NPS which is paid to educate the public by “building the health literacy of Australians”.
    The focus is on the public learning and researching their own health care.
    So in 2021 what is the Australian Government doing? Whilst on one hand they are paying taxpayer funds to promote the need for the public to check any medical therapies they accept; on the other they are spending taxpayer funds via the TGA to stop the public’s access to information.
    These are two policies that are diametrically opposed to one another.
    3. The Nuremburg Code 1947 raises a much more insidious prospect for any individual involved in preventing members of the public from deciding for themselves what medical information to review or reject or administering any therapy.
    The Nuremberg Code (1947) specifically addresses any public servant or practitioner who seeks to absolve their individual responsibilities. See Article 6 Sections 1 and 3.
    ALL who insist on forcing others to do anything based on their own opinion of proper healthcare, (whether based on the $ or not), need to be reminded that they will be charged for CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY as were WAR CRIMINALS as The Nuremburg Code, there is NO STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS.
    In February 2021, there are still guards and secretaries being charged for crimes committed 75 years ago! Here are links to three cases: https://www.nytimes.com/2021/02/21/us/us-deports-former-nazi-guard.html https://www.dw.com/en/german-prosecutors-charge-nazi-camp-secretary/a-56469619 https://www.usnews.com/news/world/articles/2021-02-09/former-nazi-guard-age-100-charged-with-accessory-to-murder
    Those at the TGA might wish to reconsider their positions.
    Letter to the Editor:
    I have also written many letters to the TGA John Skerritt, and so far he has always answered. Mainly over the banning of HCQ.
    The last letter I wrote, links the Covid Medical task force, nearly all Monash employed academics and Monash received funding to the tune of $44million from Gates foundation.
    I can send you the letter if you like you may find the contents interesting.
    I also to wrote him to reassess the authorisation of these pseudo-vaccines which Pfizer didn’t conduct human trials because too many animals died of ADE http://tribeqr.com/v/pfizerneedtoknow

  2. And the swamp just keeps getting bigger. How the hell does an agricultural professor get appointed to a human medical position like this. No wonder we are in such a mess with all misinformation. Then again I’ve seen it in industry with supervisors being put in charge of a team that the supervisor has no experience in. It’s like putting a Mechanical Fitter in charge of a team of High Voltage electricians. Gosh we the people need to drain this swamp urgently.

  3. Queensland is so lucky………….Jeannette Young has been appointed the new Governor General for that State. At least she can’t cause anymore Health issues for the population. The cynic might say she has been installed in order to provide future immunity to prosecution for her corrupt cronies.
    Oh joy, and the little hubby Graeme Nimmo is/was an advisor to Pfizer.
    If it looks like dog shit, smells like dog shit and tastes like dog shit, it is probably dog shit

  4. Did you know that the TGA and the Department of Health isn’t run by one person? Wowee! Who could’ve guest?
