Big Pharma Advertising Dollars Are at an All-Time High

Dr. Joseph Mercola
April 6, 2022

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • The drug industry influences and manipulates media through advertising dollars. In 2021, drug companies spent an aggregate $6.88 BILLION on direct-to-consumer advertising (DCTA), up slightly from $6.86 billion in 2020
  • The U.S. and New Zealand are the only two countries that permit DCTA, making media in these countries more likely to have pro-pharma bias
  • Over the past year, the U.S. government spent $1 billion of U.S. taxpayers’ money to advertise the COVID jab, which is the most dangerous and least proven drug ever marketed, while simultaneously calling for the censorship of anyone who dared to address the risks of this novel treatment
  • By law, drug ads must not be false or misleading, must present a “fair balance” of information describing both the risks and benefits of a drug, must include facts that are “material” to the product’s advertised uses, and must include a “brief summary” that mentions every risk described in the product’s labeling. Few if any ads for the COVID jab have fulfilled these requirements

How do you control major media? The short answer — illustrated in the video above — is: through advertising dollars. Big Pharma advertising dominates, making up a large portion of a given media outlet’s revenue, and that funding gives Pharma the power to dictate what ends up in the news and what doesn’t.

While Big Pharma has frequently spent more on advertising than on research and development, over the past couple of years, ad spending has increased to new heights.1

In 2021, drug companies spent an aggregate $6.88 BILLION on direct-to-consumer advertising (DCTA), up slightly from $6.86 billion in 2020.2 And, remember, DCTA is only permitted in two countries in the world, the U.S. and New Zealand, so media tend to be particularly biased in favor of Big Pharma those two countries.

Taxpayer Money Used to Advertise Most Dangerous Drug Ever

Even more egregiously, over the past year, the U.S. government used your tax dollars to advertise the COVID jab, which is the most dangerous and least proven drug ever marketed in the history of the world. How do we know this? Well, there’s:

  • An unprecedented number of adverse reports after the COVID jab filed with the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS)
  • Insurance companies are reporting unprecedented death rates. For example, OneAmerica reported the death rate among working-age Americans in the third quarter of 2021 was 40% higher than prepandemic levels;9 the Hartford Insurance Company found mortality in 2021 was 32% than 2019 and 20% higher than 2020, and Lincoln National reports that claims were 54% higher in the fourth quarter of 2021 compared to 2019 (compare that to an average year-over-year increase of 13.7%)10
  • Funeral homes are reporting an increase in burials and cremations in 2021 compared to 2020, when the pandemic was at its peak11
  • In Germany, a large health insurance company found the death rate after the rollout of the COVID jabs was 14 times higher than what was being reported by the German government,12,13 and according to a British government report, 9 out of 10 COVID deaths have occurred in people who were fully vaccinated14,15

So, the U.S. government purchased favorable media coverage for a novel and poorly tested gene transfer injection that is now killing and disabling hundreds of thousands of Americans, while simultaneously calling for the censorship of anyone who dared to address the risks of this novel treatment.In all, the U.S. government spent $1 BILLION of U.S. taxpayers’ dollars to ‘strengthen vaccine confidence in the United States’ and ‘combat misinformation about vaccines,’ all with ‘the goal of increasing rates of vaccination across all ages.’

As reported by The Blaze:16

“In response to a FOIA request filed by TheBlaze, HHS [Health and Human Services] revealed that it purchased advertising from major news networks including:

ABC, CBS, and NBC, as well as cable TV news stations Fox News, CNN, and MSNBC, legacy media publications including the New York Post, the Los Angeles Times, and the Washington Post, digital media companies like BuzzFeed News and Newsmax, and hundreds of local newspapers and TV stations.

These outlets were collectively responsible for publishing countless articles and video segments regarding the vaccine that were nearly uniformly positive about the vaccine in terms of both its efficacy and safety …

The Biden administration purchased ads on TV, radio, in print, and on social media to build vaccine confidence, timing this effort with the increasing availability of the vaccines … Though virtually all of these newsrooms produced stories covering the COVID-19 vaccines, the taxpayer dollars flowing to their companies were not disclosed to audiences …”

In all, the U.S. government spent $1 BILLION of U.S. taxpayers’ dollars to “strengthen vaccine confidence in the United States” and “combat misinformation about vaccines,” all with “the goal of increasing rates of vaccination across all ages.” Government also collaborated with celebrities, social media influencers and “expert” interviewees such as Dr. Anthony Fauci. As noted by The Daily Exposé:17

“In other words, Fauci, the man who has been the ‘face’ of COVID-19 in 2020 and 2021, who publicly disparaged anyone who questioned the data he was using to support his recommendations, and who blithely referred to himself as ‘the science,’ was, in fact, a shill.”

The Level of Manipulation of Information Is Immense

While newsrooms claim to be completely independent from the advertising department, history and the personal experience of insiders tells us this simply isn’t true.

Z-Stack 1

Take Sharyl Attkisson, for example, a five-time Emmy Award-winning network anchor, producer and reporter whose television career spans more than three decades. In 2009, she blew the lid off the swine flu media hype, showing the hysteria was manufactured and completely unfounded.

In 2014, she wrote “Stonewalled: My Fight for Truth Against the Forces of Obstruction, Intimidation, and Harassment in Obama’s Washington.” It’s a tell-all exposé on what really goes on behind the media curtain, and it’s not pretty. The extent to which information is manipulated is far greater than most people suspect, and this is particularly true when it comes to COVID.

Years before the pandemic, Attkisson explained how false “consensus” was being created: Let’s say you hear about a new drug for an ailment you have, and you decide to do your own due diligence. Ultimately, you conclude it is safe and effective because everywhere you look, the information seems to support this conclusion. You feel good knowing you’ve done your homework, and fill the prescription. But what you don’t know is that:

  • Facebook and Twitter pages speaking highly of the drug are run by individuals on the payroll of the drug company
  • The Wikipedia page for the drug is monitored and controlled by a special-interest editor hired by the drug company
  • Google search engine results have been optimized, ensuring you’ll find all those positive sources while burying contradicting information
  • The nonprofit organization you stumbled across online that recommends the drug was secretly founded and funded by the drug company
  • The positive study you found while searching online was also financed by the drug company
  • The news articles reporting the positive findings of that study sound suspiciously alike for a reason — they’re reiterating information provided by the drug company’s PR department; hence, you will not find any contradictory information there either
  • Doctors promoting the drug and making derogatory comments about those who worry about side effects are actually paid consultants for the drug company
  • The medical lecture your own personal doctor attended, where he became convinced the drug is safe and efficacious, was also sponsored by the drug company

In short, the “consensus” you see has been cleverly manufactured by the most effective propaganda campaign in the history of the world, in an effort to convince you of what the corporate cartels want you to conclude at the end of doing “your own research.” This way, they can sell you more of their expensive and dangerous products.

Over the past two years, this manipulation has become far more obvious and easy for people to see. Before the pandemic, it was pretty well disguised. Today, most can rattle off dozens of examples of how COVID information was manipulated and controlled, through the examples above and others, both by Big Pharma and the U.S. government.

Government Media Manipulation Has Been Routine for Years

For years, the U.S. government, regulatory agencies and public health organizations have colluded with media to control what gets reported and what doesn’t. This, too, is something that has become blatantly obvious during this pandemic, but it’s not a new phenomenon.

For example, back in 2016, a Scientific American investigation revealed how the U.S. Food and Drug Administration routinely manipulated mainstream media, stripping them of their independence:18

“It was a Faustian bargain … The deal was this: NPR, along with a select group of media outlets, would get a briefing about an upcoming announcement by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration a day before anyone else.

But in exchange for the scoop, NPR would have to abandon its reportorial independence. The FDA would dictate whom NPR’s reporter could and couldn’t interview … NPR reporter Rob Stein wrote back to the government officials offering the deal. Stein asked for a little bit of leeway to do some independent reporting but was turned down flat. Take the deal or leave it.”

As it turns out, NPR accepted the deal and Stein joined reporters from a dozen other media organizations to get the scoop. “Every single journalist present had agreed not to ask any questions of sources not approved by the government until given the go-ahead,” Scientific American wrote.

Considering the U.S. government’s many power grabs over the past two years, there’s no reason to assume it hasn’t been using this kind of manipulation to control media coverage of COVID-19 and the injections. Bill Gates, whose influence rivals that of nation states through his funding of the World Health Organization, has also poured hundreds of millions of dollars into the COVID campaign. As reported by The Daily Exposé:19

“Using more than 30,000 grants, Gates has contributed at least $319 million to the media … Recipients included CNN, NPR, BBC, The Atlantic and PBS. Gates has also sponsored foreign organizations that included The Daily Telegraph, the Financial Times, and Al Jazeera. More than $38 million has also been funneled into investigative journalism centers.

Gates’ influence within the press is far-reaching, from journalism to journalistic training. This ultimately makes true objective reporting about Gates or his initiatives virtually impossible.”

DTCA Known to Produce Negative Public Health Effects

In 2006, experts warned that DTCA could trigger “placebo effects” and result in “negative economic, social and political consequences,”20 and in 2011, an article in Pharmacy and Therapeutics noted that the rules governing drug ads to the public were “too relaxed and inadequately enforced.”21

As reported by Forbes in 2019,22 “While DTCA has some positive effects, these commercials tend to mislead patients and can result in the breakdown of the doctor-patient relationship … According to an FDA survey, 65% of physicians said that DTCA for drugs sent confusing messages to the patients …” Importantly, drug ads must:23

  1. not be false or misleading
  2. present a “fair balance” of information describing both the risks and benefits of a drug
  3. include facts that are “material” to the product’s advertised uses, and
  4. include a “brief summary” that mentions every risk described in the product’s labeling

Have you ever seen an ad for the COVID jab that held true to these four requirements? I can’t think of one. People who have been injured by the COVID jab are now also starting to speak out, saying they feel betrayed and misled, as they were never told about the potential dangers of the shot.

One excellent example is the Substack writer Joomi’s story, “I Was Deceived About COVID Vaccine Safety.”24 Has mainstream media become too corrupted to serve its intended function? I believe so. At bare minimum, the likelihood of getting the truth on anything related to government or health, specifically, is virtually nil these days.

Sacklers Reach $6 Billion Deal Over Purdue Pharma’s OxyContin Lawsuits

Members of the billionaire Sackler family who control Purdue Pharma LP have agreed to fork over as much as $6 billion in a settlement with state governments for their role in fueling the U.S. opioid epidemic — a massive step in clawing back billions of dollars from the family’s fortune to support addiction treatment centers nationwide, according to a court filing on Thursday.

The deal comes after years of litigation over Purdue Pharma’s marketing of the OxyContin painkiller that subsequentially sparked the opioid crisis, claiming the lives of more than half a million Americans over the last two decades.

Attorneys general of eight states and the District of Columbia announced the deal after rejecting a $4.3 billion cash payment from the Sacklers.

The family demanded that a bankruptcy deal wouldn’t be possible unless they were released from all future liability related to Purdue’s OxyContin.

The new deal would restructure the company into a new entity called Knoa Pharma that a public board controls.

At the very end of the court filing, the Sacklers said they’re “pleased to have reached a settlement with additional states.”

They also said, “they sincerely regret that OxyContin … unexpectedly became part of an opioid crisis that has brought grief and loss to far too many families and communities.”

On Twitter, Prescription Addiction Intervention Now (PAIN), a non-profit activist group against the Sackler family, called the family’s statement “horrendous.”

Connecticut Attorney General William tweeted a statement:

“After years of lies and denial, the Sackler family must now directly apologize for the pain they have caused. They must reckon face-to-face with the survivors of their reckless greed at a public hearing. Museums and universities may now scrub the tarnished Sackler name from their walls—ensuring this family is remembered throughout history for their callous disdain for human suffering and nothing else.”

Judge Robert Drain, handling Purdue’s bankruptcy proceedings in White Plains, New York, must approve the deal with a hearing slated for March 9.

What Do They Know? High-End Investors Head for the Hills as Big Pharma Stocks Crater

 JD Rucker

All indications from corporate media tell us Big Pharma is a safe investment as Pandemic Panic Theater continues to rage. But the biggest investors are pulling out now. Why?

For the average investor, there seems to be a future in Big Pharma. The world is engulfed by Pandemic Panic Theater as new jabs, boosters, and pills continue to roll out to fight Covid. Mandates are still in place for millions of people and threats of more still loom. This week, a national vaccine passport quietly moved forward.

But the elite investors are inexplicably pulling out. Stock prices for the major vaccine manufacturers are plummeting as a result, leaving many smaller investors wondering if this is a long-term trend or a blip. According to The Deseret Review:

Wall Street investors are dumping their Moderna and Pfizer stock faster than the world can drop the mandates. Moderna is down 70 percent from its high, while Pfizer is off 19 percent. Former Blackrock Executive and investment adviser Edward Dowd calls for Moderna to go to zero and Pfizer to end under ten dollars per share.

How is this possible given that Pfizer now enjoys record earnings per share and a market capitalization of some $270 billion, making it the 29th largest corporation globally? With nothing but profits in sight for the Pharmaceutical giant, what could be the problem?

After all, in December, a Forbes‘ headline read, “The Vaccine Maker Can Dominate The Covid Market For Years to Come, Wells Fargo Predicts.” In addition to the enormously profitable mRNA vaccines, Pfizer is rolling out potent antivirals like Paxlovid, which could earn $22 billion in 2022.

Compared to the $81 billion in 2021 revenue, the earnings from the vaccines and the antivirals could top $102 billion for 2022, which is music to shareholders’ ears. However some are hearing shrieks, and these happen to be Wall Street’s finest, the smart money that beats the rest of the herd to the exits like clockwork.

These sophisticated investors make it their business to not go with the conventional wisdom but to do their own research, which often pays spectacular dividends.

The prevailing conspiracy theory explaining this swift change in money confidence claims the powers-that-be have initiated the next stage of their plan to bring forth The Great Reset. Russia in Ukraine, perhaps followed by China in Taiwan, and other conflicts across the globe could send America’s and the world’s economies into full-blown collapse.

Accounts are being frozen and money is losing stability, whether by Canada with their draconian reactions to the Freedom Convoy, sanctions currently being placed on powerful Russians, or the odd push for green energy. This all portends a near-future strong reaction from the people, a reaction that could usher in the “need” for a universal cashless society and government-controlled digital currency.

In other words, whatever the big investors know about Big Pharma stocks, it’s very likely that the agenda is not one the people of the world will enjoy. Machinations of globalist elites invariably harm the masses even as they’re promoted as beneficial to all. The precepts of The Great Reset demand an unwitting embrace of Neo-Marxism disguised with colorful terms like “stakeholder capitalism” and “the end of poverty.”

What they don’t tell you is that the “equity” they promote is designed to make us all equally destitute. They want the vast majority of people are beholden to the powers-that-be in order to survive.

We’ll be keeping a very close eye on how the big money is moving. Every action by the globalist elite going forward will be calculated and pre-planned. It’s time for the rest of us to prepare for what’s to come.

Fda Requests Further Delay in Releasing Covid Vax Documents as Pfizer Steps in to Help Withhold Data

Ashley Sadler
January 28th, 2022

The request comes after the regulatory agency made headlines for previously requesting 55 and then 75 years to fully release the information it used to approve Pfizer’s increasingly-mandated COVID jab.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has once again requested permission to hold off on releasing the data it used to approve Pfizer’s COVID-19 shots for widespread distribution despite a court order requiring them to begin publishing 55,000 pages of documents per month starting in March.

Meanwhile, Pfizer has attempted to insert itself into the matter in an effort to protect its interests.

The FDA’s request to continue hiding the crucial safety data from consumers comes as COVID-19 jabs, including those produced by Pfizer, are increasingly mandated across the U.S. and the globe for participation in many aspects of society.

Attorney Aaron Siri, who filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the FDA in August on behalf of a coalition of researchers and scientists to demand the full release of the documents, wrote about the developments in a Substack post on Wednesday.

According to Siri, the FDA “has now asked the Court to make the public wait until May for it to start producing 55,000 pages per month and, even then, claims it may not be able to meet this rate.”

Meanwhile, “[a]s the FDA tries to obtain months of delay, guess who just showed [up] in the lawsuit?” Siri asked rhetorically, adding, “Yep, Pfizer.”

FDA tells Court must delay first 55,000 pages until at least May. FDA’s excuse? Lack of resources. Maybe spend less taxpayer money fighting transparency!

And Pfizer has now moved to join the lawsuit claiming it wants to help expedite. 😂

The regulatory body’s renewed efforts to stall publication of the documents and Pfizer’s arrival on the scene come after the FDA raised eyebrows last year by requesting decades to fully release the data it had reviewed before authorizing Pfizer’s COVID-19 injections.

In response to Siri’s FOIA lawsuit, the FDA had asked the court for 55 to 75 years to make public the roughly 329,000 pages of documents in its possession.

Facing legal pressure, however, in November the FDA released its first batch of documents, a scant 91 pages that, nonetheless contained data suggesting that tens of thousands of serious adverse events and more than 1,200 deaths had been reported in the first three months after Pfizer’s drug was cleared by the FDA under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA).

Then, earlier this month, a U.S. district judge rejected the FDA’s request to continue delaying the release of the data, ordering the regulatory body to publish the documents at a rate of 55,000 pages per month beginning in March rather than the 500 pages per month initially requested.

Pfizer Made $80B Last Year – but Being Stingy with Property Promised to NYC Charter, Officials Say

Carl Campanile
January 24th, 2022

Drug manufacturing giant Pfizer — which is projected to report industry shattering $80 billion in business for last year thanks largely to sales of its coronavirus vaccine — is sticking charter school kids in Brooklyn with an injection of rejection, school officials said.

Operators of Beginning with Children, one of the first charter schools to open in the city in 1992, wants to open a high school on an empty lot adjacent to its existing middle-grades charter school at 11 Bartlett St. in Williamsburg.

“They have a great record of success,” said Joseph Belluck, chairman of the SUNY Charter School Committee that approved Beginning With Children’s high school grades expansion.

Its elementary school is at 215 Heyward St. and the middle school is on the property turned over to BWC by Pfizer.

But the charter school operators claim that Pfizer — whose storied history as one of the world’s largest drug manufacturers started at its campus in Brooklyn — is being stingy by reneging on a promise to give or sell the vacant lot to the school for expansion.

“Pfizer made promises to our school, our families and our community that they haven’t kept, and they’ve provided no explanation why,” Beginning With Children Foundation CEO Lewson Kurz told The Post.

Beginnings for Children in Brooklyn.
A Beggings for Children rep said that Pfizer offered to negotiate a purchase of the vacant lot at fair market value but cut off negotiations last January.

“They deserve credit for their work on the vaccine but their refusal to engage the community on this sliver of abandoned property is puzzling. Pfizer’s obstinance is denying opportunity to Brooklyn children. We hope Pfizer changes its mind and does the right thing,” added Kurz.

Pfizer offered to negotiate a purchase of the vacant lot at fair market value but cut off negotiations in January 2020, reps for Beginning with Children said. Discussions about the future use of the vacant lot go back to at least 2008.

The property is an abandoned brownfield site and existing buildings were knocked down to do environmental clean up.

Local Brooklyn political leaders also complained about Pfizer’s stall on the use of the property and urged them to be a good neighbor.

“The Pfizer location [next to] 11 Bartlett St. is currently unmaintained, fenced off eyesore that is out of step with the blossoming neighborhood surrounding it. Across the City abandoned or underutilized properties are being repurposed for community benefit. There are no shortages of individuals who are interested in developing this property beyond what it is currently being used for,” Brooklyn Borough President Antonio Reynoso said in an Oct. 22, 2021 letter he co-wrote as a councilman to Pfizer Executive VP Sally Susman.

Reynoso mentioned affordable housing as one option and added, “It is our understanding that the Pfizer-owned property also controls the development rights of the Charter School next door thereby inhibiting their development and growth as well.”

“For years the neighborhood worked to support Pfizer while it operated there, we are now asking Pfizer to work to support the neighborhood by allowing the property to be developed,” Reynoso said in the letter co-signed by former Councilman Stephen Levin.

Pfizer, in a statement to The Post, said it has been a good community neighbor, including to students. The company noted it provided BWC charter school with its current building and property for a $1-a-year annual lease in 1992 and then gave them the title for $10.

“As we prepare for the 175th anniversary of Pfizer, we have been diligently working on options for the 0.42-acre Bartlett St. property recognizing that the remaining parcel is the last link to the founding history of the Company,” the statement said.

“Our plans are to retain the last remaining piece of property, and we look forward to sharing our proposal for the site with elected officials and the community of Brooklyn very soon.”

Beginning with Children students was founded by Joseph and Carol Reich, who also helped create the New York City Charter School Center.

BWC students outperformed kids from surrounding neighborhood schools on the state’s 2019 standardized Math and English exams.

Nearly two-thirds of students were deemed proficient in Math — 23 percent higher than nearby district schools and 15 points higher than the citywide average.

In English Language Arts, 52 percent of students met proficiency, eight points higher than surrounding district schools and 5 points higher than the citywide average.

Meanwhile, Pfizer is expected to close its books with $80 billion in revenue for 2021, double its $40 billion in business in 2020. Sales from COVID-19 vaccine and booster generated about half the revenue.

Pfizer could generate more than $100 billion in 2022 thanks to continuing sales of the COVID vaccine developed with BioNTech as well as delivery of its antiviral pill, Paxlovid, to non-hospitalized patients.

German immigrants and cousins Charles Pfizer and Charles Erhart founded Charles Pfizer & Company in a brick building in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood. At the intersection of Harrison Avenue and Bartlett Street, they launched what would become one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical producers. The closing of its Flushing Avenue plant in 2007 was a bitter pill for the community.

Pfizer was instrumental in manufacturing penicillin antibiotics from its Brooklyn plants a century ago — dubbed the “miracle drug” to treat bacterial infections and sexually transmitted diseases. By the mid-1940s the company was the largest producer of the life-saving drug in the world.

Ron Paul, Congressman of 30 Years, Banned on Facebook After Quoting Pfizer CEO

By Matt Agorist

Though the fact-checking madness began long before COVID-19, over the last two years, fact-checking has seemingly been weaponized to defend the establishment’s narrative only. Challenge the status quo and you will be censored into oblivion by the system’s praetorian guard — never mind the fact that they have been wrong countless times.

One of the most egregious “fact checks” happened recently after Pfizer’s CEO Albert Bourla made a statement during an interview with Yahoo Finance on January 10. Speaking in reference to the Omicron variant of COVID-19, Bourla said, “We know that the two doses of a vaccine offer very limited protection, if any.”

Naturally, this statement from the CEO of a vaccine company that manufactures the jab which many Americans were forced to take against their will in order to keep their jobs or go out in public, drew much deserved attention. Many folks called out the CEO for his comments in April in which he stated that the “Phase 3 study with BioNTech also showed that our COVID-19 vaccine was 100% effective in preventing #COVID19 cases in South Africa. 100%!”

Excited to share that updated analysis from our Phase 3 study with BioNTech also showed that our COVID-19 vaccine was 100% effective in preventing #COVID19 cases in South Africa. 100%! https://t.co/E2ksTJSopU

— Albert Bourla (@AlbertBourla) April 1, 2021

As people began to compare these two statements — one claiming 100% efficacy, with another claiming two doses may not work at all — the praetorian guard, aka the fact-checking army, came to the rescue to conduct damage control.

Because Bourla did in fact state that the vaccine was 100% effective in April only to claim 9 months later that it may not be effective at all, the fact-checkers couldn’t claim this was false. Instead, Reuters claimed that anyone who pointed out Bourla’s most recent statement was “missing context” when quoting the CEO because his comments about offering “very limited protection, if any,” were made specifically in regard to the Omicron variant.

VERDICT
Missing context. During an interview on Jan. 10, Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla said two doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech shot offered “very limited protection” against COVID-19 infection with the Omicron variant. He was not talking about protection against infection by other variants of the coronavirus.

This statement is true and the carefully chosen wording makes it impossible to dispute. A win for Bourla, loss for anyone who quoted him.

Let’s forget about the fact that the federal government did not detail the efficacy of the jab against specific variants when it mandated vaccines through OSHA. Let’s also forget that New York, San Francisco, and the myriad of other municipalities who have mandated the jab for access to public places also make no mention of efficacy against all the different variants while compelling the medical procedure. This is apparently not important to them.

What is important, however, is protecting the image of Pfizer and making sure no one becomes “vaccine-hesitant” based on misconstrued statements or misinformation. Right?

Moving forward, we will have to specify the exact variant of the covid-19 virus to which the big pharma shills are referring in regard to the vaccine if we are to challenge or quote anything they say — lest we get the ban hammer. Just ask former Congressman Ron Paul what happens when you quote the Pfizer CEO and leave out Omicron.

Paul was banned from Facebook for 90 days for sharing the video of Bourla, and titling it “Pfizer CEO: From “100% Effective in Preventing Covid” To “Very Limited Protection, If Any.” All of this is factual, but leaving out Omicron left the former Congressman open for attack, and attacked he was.

“My speech crime? I shared an interview with the CEO of Pfizer,” Dr. Paul wrote in an email.

“The so-called “missing context” that Facebook’s “fact-checkers” claim justifies banning me from interacting with over a million followers is that the drug company CEO was “only” referring to the Omicron variant that makes up 95% of new COVID cases in the United States,” he said, adding that “this was my second sanctioning by Facebook in just over a year.”

The idea that a former Congressman of three decades can be wiped off of social media for simply sharing a video of the Pfizer CEO should be shocking. Unfortunately, however, it is the norm, and it is to be expected, especially considering the cozy relationship between the fact-checkers and the industry.

In fact, their relationship is far more than just cozy. In 2014, James C. Smith — who was then the President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Thomson Reuters and served on its Board of Directors — was appointed to the Board of Directors to the Corporate Governance and Science and Technology Committees at Pfizer.

Thomson Reuters CEO James C. Smith elected to Pfizer Board of Directors http://t.co/ZeZkq36ida

— Pfizer Inc. (@pfizer_news) June 26, 2014

That’s right, after his appointment to the Board of Directors for Pfizer, Smith remained the CEO for Reuters for the next six years. Though he retired from the news agency in 2020, Smith remains on the Pfizer board. He is also still the current Chairman of the Thomson Reuters Foundation.

But that’s not all. Smith is also on the international business council of the World Economic Forum and the international advisory boards of the British American Business Council and, last but not least, none other than the infamous Atlantic Council.

Certainly there has to be a conflict of interests somewhere in all these entanglements, right? If Reuters is conducting fact checks for Pfizer’s benefit, it might be beneficial if people knew the tightly woven connection between these two multi-billion dollar corporations, right?

It certainly creates a motive for Smith to remove his LinkedIn profile which detailed all these connections. Whether or not this was the reason it was removed is unclear, but it was there one day and gone the next.

For now, there is no recourse and Reuters has the final word… Actual discourse be damned.

Dr. Fauci, Senator Paul Clash (Again) over Biden Administration’s Covid-19 Response

Sophie Mann
January 11th, 2022

Dr. Anthony Fauci and GOP Sen. Rand Paul on Tuesday clashed again over the Biden administration’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, with the Republican lawmaker also accusing President Biden’s top medical adviser of conspiring to silence critics.

Paul, in a Senate hearing at which Fauci testified, introduced an email exchange between Fauci and former National Institutes of Health Director Dr. Francis Collins, in which Collins suggested “creating a quick and devastating public takedown” of several epidemiologists from Harvard, Stanford, and Oxford, who apparently held opinions about COVID with which Francis and Fauci disagreed. 

“In an email exchange with Dr. Collins, you conspire, and I quote here directly from the email, to ‘create a quick and devastating published takedown’ of three prominent epidemiologists from Harvard, Oxford and Stanford,” Paul said. 

Paul also said: “A planner who believes he is ‘the science’ leads to an arrogance that justifies, in his mind, using government resources to smear and to destroy the reputations of other scientists who disagree with him.”

Fauci, also director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, contested Paul’s claims, which included that Fauci promptly agreed to Collins’ plan.

“In usual fashion, senator, you are distorting everything about me,” Fauci said. “You do the same thing every hearing.”

To be sure, Paul, also a doctor, has been among Fauci’s most vocal critics since the early stages of the pandemic and has called for him to fired from his government post. 

Their heated exchange Tuesday appeared to peak when Fauci pulled out photographs from the senator’s campaign website with the words “Fire Dr. Fauci” beside a picture of the doctor and an option to donate to the Paul’s reelection campaign.

Fauci also repeatedly accused Paul of attacking him for political gain. 

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Rochelle Walensky; acting Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Dr. Janet Woodcock; and Dawn O’Connell, the Department of Health and Human Services’ assistant secretary for preparedness and response, also testified before the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee on the pandemic response and the surge in COVID cases as a result of the highly contagious Omicron variant. 

Questions about confusing communication efforts from the government to the American people about things like booster shots, test availability, and CDC guidelines quickly devolved into emotional, political sparring when Paul was given the floor.

The lawmaker opened his questioning period by calling Fauci a scientist who “rules by mandate” but often makes mistakes.

Committee Chairwoman Democratic Sen. Patty Murray briefly allowed Fauci to respond to some of Paul’s remarks, during which time he discussed the recent arrest of a man Iowa who was allegedly on his way to Washington, D.C., with an AR-15 weapon in his car to kill him.

Fauci said such accusations from Paul “kindle the crazies out there” to behave in way that could be harmful and dangerous to him and his family. 

Paul, in 2017, was attacked on his own lawn by a neighbor who ran onto the lawmaker’s property and tackled him. As a result of the attack, Paul suffered five rib fractures and later required medical attention for pneumonia.

Top 12 Takeaways From the Joe Rogan and Dr. Robert Malone Interview

Lance D Johnson
January 4th, 2022

One of the most insightful dialogues of 2021 was Joe Rogan’s interview of Dr. Robert Malone (#1757). Dr. Malone invented the mRNA technology that is being used in the experimental covid vaccines. Dr. Malone has developed medical products, drugs and clinical trials. He has worked directly with Dr. Anthony Fauci and scientists at the Centers for Disease Control. However, at this critical moment in history, he refuses to follow along with their vax-all agenda that has quashed medical ethics and destroyed the principles of medical privacy and informed consent.

For not complying, Dr. Malone was banned from Twitter. He was also de-platformed and then re-instated from LinkedIn, for stating the simple fact that the head of Reuters is on the board of Pfizer. (Reuters is used as the end-all, know-all fact checker for Twitter and other social media sites.) Robert Malone vows to continue “telling the truth” — even as the drug companies try to censor his voice.

Here are some major takeaways from the Rogan/Malone interview:

  1. The gain-of-function research behind the development of the bioweapon spike protein ultimately paved the way for the development of a similar, but different spike protein which is currently being used as mRNA instructions in the covid vaccine. The drug companies have an ethical obligation to prove that the spike protein in their vaccine is not toxic, said Malone.
  2. Many people are not acutely injured by the vaccines and some show no adverse effects at all. Rogan asked why. Malone explained that the response curve is due to variances in the individual immune system, including phenotypic/genetic differences.
  3. Malone spoke about the term “anti-vaxxer” which is used to falsely shame people who do not take orders from public health officials. It’s similarly used to socially ostracize anyone who dissents to drug company propaganda. Malone discussed the BBC’s Trusted New Initiative which charges individuals for spreading “misinformation” if they speak out against Tedros, Fauci, or other vaccine propagandists.
  4. Dr. Malone emphasized the trauma that is being imparted in children’s minds, and the subsequent dehumanization, de-socialization and abuse that is being used against children with forced masks and isolation.
  5. When Rogan asked why hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin were smeared by the media and blocked by the regulatory establishment, Malone said two people were key in this decision. One of them was vaccine promoter Rick Bright, who runs the Pandemic Prevention Institute at The Rockefeller Foundation. Rick Bright used his position as Director of the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority to discredit chloroquine and hydroxychloroquinetwo drugs that displayed a history of safety and effectiveness against SARS-CoV-1.
  6. The other figure who blocked treatments for covid-19 was Janet Woodcock. After she took the helm at the Food and Drug Administration on January 20, 2021, she used the agency to mock ivermectin and contort its proper use in humans with its veterinary applications. Senator Ron Johnson wrote to Woodcock, Fauci and other public health officials, detailing their concern that efficacious treatments were being withheld to push out dangerous vaccines, for which informed consent has not properly been applied. Dr. Malone did not speculate on Woodcock and Bright’s intentions, but said they were wrong in their assertions.
  7. Both hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin are on the essential drugs list provided by the World Health Organization. Billions of doses have been safely administered. These drugs ease symptoms and shorten the duration of illness, preventing severe disease and death. Malone also said that Merck’s repeated attacks on both drugs is bizarre, to say the least – especially since high ivermectin use in Uttar Pradesh was associated with lower mortality rates.
  8. Joe Rogan asked Malone about the financial incentive to diagnose covid-19 in the hospital setting. Malone said hospitals are reimbursed around $3,000 for every covid-19 diagnosis. Treatment protocols are withheld because the hospitals are further incentivized to use remdesivir and ventilators, which are linked to renal failure, lung damage, and deadly nosocomial infection. It doesn’t matter why the individual was initially hospitalized, whether they were suffering from underlying conditions, mediation errors, delayed surgeries, etc. If the hospital “suspects” covid-19 or can get a positive reading on a high cycle threshold PCR test, the hospital can fraudulently declare a covid-19 diagnosis and be reimbursed for their medical fraud and malpractice.
  9. When questioned on the waning efficacy of the vaccines, Malone concurred that the vaccines are leading to negative efficacy, like in the Denmark studies. As doses are increased, individuals become more prone to infection. In Israel, the citizens are being coerced to take a fourth dose, and the data shows enhanced disease in the vaccinated. Their B and T memory cells are being trained to attack a spike protein that has long since mutated, setting the vaccinated up for antibody dependent enhancement, autoimmune issues and cancer.
  10. Rogan and Malone discussed natural immunity and the studies that prove the superiority of innate immunity over half-baked, vaccine-augmented immune responses.
  11. Malone points to disturbing trends in myocarditis in young boys, post vaccination. He spoke about the infertility risk due to the effect of lipid nano-particles on women’s ovaries. He warned about the spike protein and its propensity to cause blood clots. They discussed the censorship of Maddie de Garay, the young girl who was acutely injured in the Pfizer trial. Malone said that financial incentives and expected outcomes are used to hide data on vaccine injuries, while promoting contrived end points that make the vaccine look good.
  12. Malone warned: “Our government is out of control on this. They are lawless, they completely disregard bioethics” and “these mandates of an experimental vaccine are explicitly illegal, they are explicitly inconsistent with the Nuremberg Code.”

‘Paramount Importance’: Judge Orders FDA to Release Pfizer Vaccine Docs this Year, Not Over Next 75 Years

Score one for transparency.

A federal judge in Texas on Thursday ordered the Food and Drug Administration to make public the data it relied on to license Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine, imposing a dramatically accelerated schedule that should result in the release of all information within about eight months.

That’s roughly 75 years and four months faster than the FDA said it could take to complete a Freedom of Information Act request by a group of doctors and scientists seeking an estimated 450,000 pages of material about the vaccine.

The court “concludes that this FOIA request is of paramount public importance,” wrote U.S. District Judge Mark Pittman in Fort Worth, who was appointed to the bench by former President Donald Trump in 2019.

The FDA didn’t dispute it had an obligation to make the information public but argued that its short-staffed FOIA office only had the bandwidth to review and release 500 pages a month.

While Pittman recognized “the ‘unduly burdensome’ challenges that this FOIA request may present to the FDA,” in his four-page order, he resoundingly rejected the agency’s suggested schedule.

Rather than producing 500 pages a month — the FDA’s proposed timeline — he ordered the agency to turn over 55,000 a month. That means all the Pfizer vaccine data should be public by the end of the summer rather than, say, the year 2097.

Even if the FDA may not see it this way, I think Pittman did the agency — and the country — a big favor by expediting the document production.

I’ve been chronicling this fight since November and have heard from dozens of readers who said they felt something was suspicious, even nefarious, in the FDA’s proposed slo-mo timeline. Making the information public as soon as possible may help assuage the concerns of vaccine skeptics and convince them the product is safe.

Pittman in his order nodded to this as well, including a quote from the late senator John McCain, who said that excessive administrative secrecy “feeds conspiracy theories and reduces the public’s confidence in the government.”

Still, the FDA is likely to be hard-pressed to process 55,000 pages a month.

The office that reviews FOIA requests has just 10 employees, according to a declaration filed with the court by Suzann Burk, who heads the FDA’s Division of Disclosure and Oversight Management. Burk said it takes eight minutes a page for a worker “to perform a careful line-by-line, word-by-word review of all responsive records before producing them in response to a FOIA request.”

At that rate, the 10 employees would have to work non-stop 24 hours a day, seven days a week to produce the 55,000 pages a month (and would still fall a bit short).

But as lawyers for the plaintiffs Public Health and Medical Professionals for Transparency pointed out in court papers, the FDA as of 2020 had 18,062 employees. Surely some can be dispatched to pitch in at the FOIA office.

Aaron Siri of Siri & Glimstad, who represents the plaintiffs, in an email said the decision “came down on the side of transparency and accountability.”

His clients — a group that includes more than 200 doctors, scientists, professors and public health professionals, including some who have publicly questioned the efficacy of lockdown policies, mask mandates and the vaccine itself — have pledged to publish all the information they receive from the FDA on their website.

The Justice Department, which represented the FDA in the litigation, did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Thursday evening. Pfizer, not a party to the suit, also did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Pittman in his order made clear that the FOIA request, even if burdensome, has to be a priority for the FDA.

Quoting from remarks made during the hearing before him on December 14, he wrote that “there may not be a ‘re important issue at the Food and Drug Administration . . . than the pandemic, the Pfizer vaccine, getting every American vaccinated,” and assuring the public that the vaccine was not “‘rush[ed] on behalf of the United States.'”

PETA Investigator Finds 360 Dead Dogs During Investigation Into NIH Abuse of Beagles

The NIH was recently accused of horrible cruelty to dogs being experimented on.  A recent PETA investigation is confirming this abuse. 

FOX News reports:

The National Institutes of Health was accused of involvement in a $1.2 million contract over the past decade to purchase beagles for cruel experiments, said PETA senior vice president of cruelty investigations Daphna Nachminovitch

The most recent alleged violation is from Virginia-based supplier Envigo, which is accused of providing nearly 5,000 beagle dogs and puppies to NIH and other labs to be confined and tortured.

During a PETA investigator’s visit, more than 360 dogs were allegedly found dead.

The Gateway Pundit first reported on this grotesque animal abuse in August.
