New Text Messages Reveal 2nd Battalion 1st Marines Were Given “a Countdown” Before Kabul Airport Bombing – It Started About Two Hours Out – They Are Now Being Silenced
Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit, Sep 4, 2021

The US military knew there was going to be an attack at the Kabul Airport last week.… Following the attack, one Marine wrote a text message to The Raid Team. The Marine who was on the scene disclosed that there was a countdown before the suicide bomber detonated himself.… “Yeah… it happened an hour after the last radio transmission about it. They said 10 minutes an IED is set to go off. 2 minutes an IED is set to go off. At 1627 an IED is going to go off. Then at 1730 something finally went off.”…

Gunshot victims left waiting as horse dewormer overdoses overwhelm Oklahoma hospitals, doctor says
Rolling Stone @RollingStone, Twitter, Sep 3 article
Shall we make a list?

  1. "Doctor says."
  2. Calling ivermectin a "horse dewormer" when it is one of the premier drugs for treating parasitic illness in humans.
  3. Photo that shows people rugged up for winter in an area where recent daytime temperatures have been in the high 90s.
  4. An apparent - and yet somehow entirely unreported - epidemic of gun violence in rural Oklahoma.

The story was of course circulated by the usual "intellectuals" and "epidemiologists" and "news organisations".… So what is the basis in truth for these claims? Turns out, there isn't any. Every single word is a lie.
Message from the administration of Northeastern Health System - Sequoyah

Although Dr. Jason McElyea is not an employee of NHS Sequoyah, he is affiliated with a medical staffing group that provides coverage for our emergency room.

With that said, Dr. McElyea has not worked at our Sallisaw location in over 2 months.

NHS Sequoyah has not treated any patients due to complications related to taking ivermectin. This includes not treating any patients for ivermectin overdose.

All patients who have visited our emergency room have received medical attention as appropriate. Our hospital has not had to turn away any patients seeking emergency care.

We want to reassure our community that our staff is working hard to provide quality healthcare to all patients. We appreciate the opportunity to clarify this issue and as always, we value our community’s support.

There are ZERO cases of ivermectin overdose being treated in the eastern Oklahoma hospital system, and NOBODY has been turned away from emergency care.

Looks like somebody found the original usage of that Oklahoma line of patients. [An earlier RS article about Okla. AmerIndians getting the Covid innoculations.]
