PFIZER AND UNCLE SAM, A HISTORY OF FRAUD, RECALLS, AND DEATH

Published

on

“FDA Grants Full Approval To Pfizer Covid Vaccine!” read the media headlines on Monday morning. The mainstream media celebrated, President Joe Biden demanded that all employers in the United States mandate the vaccine, and the Pentagon required it for all of our brave men and women serving in the US Armed Forces. In less than a week, the vax happy are anxiously awaiting when some type of vaccine passport will be required for all. You can just feel the authoritarian energy building to a crescendo.

In the flurry of it all, few have taken the time to look at Pfizer’s track record and our government’s history of simply getting it wrong when it comes to the safety of drugs and medication they said were safe for public consumption. Here is a brief history:

*In 2009, Pfizer agreed to pay the US Government $2.3 Billion for fraudulent marketing in the largest health care fraud settlement in the history of the Department of Justice, to resolve criminal and civil liability arising from the illegal promotion of certain pharmaceutical products.

*In 2005, Pfizer recalled the drug Bextra due to increased risk of heart attack and stroke in some patients, but it was also found to cause a fatal skin condition.

*Pfizer’s vaccine plant has a history of mold issues.

*In 2014, Pfizer recalled two lots of its antidepressant drug Effexor XR. Tikosyn was discovered in an Effexor XR bottle. Tikosyn is one of the company’s heart pills. Pfizer warned that the combination of the two different drugs could be deadly.

*In 2013, Pfizer recalled Prempro, a hormone drug. Nearly 10,000 women filed Prempro breast cancer lawsuits against Pfizer.Pfizer settled most of the claims for more than $1 billion.
About 3,000 people filed Chantix lawsuits against Pfizer. They claimed Chantix caused suicidal thoughts and severe psychological disorders. In 2013, the company set aside about $288 million to resolve these cases.

*Over 7,800 testosterone therapy lawsuits were filed against manufacturers as of November 2020. Pfizer had reached an agreement with the consumers suing the company in February 2018, ending its role in the massive litigation. The lawsuits say testosterone products caused strokes, blood clots and heart attacks.

*Trovan. In 1996, Pfizer conducted an unapproved clinical trial. It involved children with meningitis in Nigeria, CBS News reported. The trials led to the deaths of 11 children. Dozens more were left disabled.

*In 2011, Pfizer paid $700,000 to four families who lost children during the Trovan trials.

Certainly, Pfizer has done some good in this world, they invented Advil after all. They discovered citric acid and have mass produced Vitamin C and Penicillin. One might safely assume that, on the whole, the company’s innovations have done more good than harm to humanity. However, Pfizer and the FDA aren’t exactly batting 1,000 when it comes to ensuring that a mass-produced product will be safe, in the long term, for mass public consumption.

What if Pfizer’s Covid Vaccine turns out to be another Trovan, Chantix, Prempro, or any of the other products that turned out to be the farthest thing from “safe and effective?” The FDA approved all of those drugs just as they have approved the Covid Vaccine, but what if they are wrong again? What if Pfizer didn’t learn their lesson when they settled their fraud case? What if their claims regarding the vaccine are fraudulent, just like their fraudulent claims about some of their past products?

A decade ago, our government charged Pfizer with civil and criminal healthcare fraud. Now that same government has essentially become Pfizer’s chief of marketing and advertising. This is the same US Government that once encouraged people to smoke tobacco only to later prosecute tobacco companies and impose high taxes on the users of those products in the name of “public health.” The US government poisoned alcohol during prohibition, killing at least 10,000 people. Our US government tested AIDS drugs on foster children and conducted human radiation experiments at government labs, universities and public and private hospitals between 1945 and the mid-1970s. Yet we are now told to blindly trust the government when they say the Pfizer vaccine is safe. Oh how they want you to have never known or forget!

The United States was founded on a deep distrust and suspicion of government. This suspicion was so strong, that for the first 13 years of our existence, our nation operated under an extremely weak centralized government via the Articles of Confederation. It was with great and spirited debate that we ceded more power to a central government with the formation of our US Constitution. We fought a Civil War in part over questions of government power and since these early times in our history, there has always been a healthy suspicion and questioning of the government. Where have those questions of government edicts and, more importantly, the questioners gone?

Published

In an interview with One America News Network (OAN) that aired just this week, American Freedom Tour President Chris Widener explains the inspiration and purpose behind the American Freedom Tour.

The event series debuts in Jacksonville, Florida from Oct. 7-8.

“I look at the last five years, and conservatives have been told how bad they are,” Widener explains. “They’re deplorable, they’re racist, they’re sexist, xenophobic, transphobic. They’ve been beaten up for five years.”

“I thought,” Widener continued, “wouldn’t it be amazing if we did some rallies around the country, and got conservatives together, so that folks could look around and say, ‘I’m not alone.'”

So, who is Chris Widener, the president of the American Freedom Tour? Consider his thoughts on mask mandates:

“To me, the mask thing is just a way to show you who’s boss. It’s something so simple and so trite. And in reality, what does it really take to put a mask on? But that’s just such a surface level of looking at it. You have to ask, ‘Why would I have to put this mask on?’ And if they can get me to do something really simple like that, what else can they increase it and slowly but surely take away your rights?”

Watch the entire interview on Rumble, or here:

Additional American Freedom Tour events are scheduled in Ohio, Missouri, and North Carolina. Additional locations will be announced on AmericanFreedomTour.com as they become available.

Micro-tasking, not Multitasking, for Effective Performance

Professionals who can micro-task are in demand; multitaskers are doing themselves and their organizations a disservice.

Published

on

Much as been discussed about multitasking and fortunately, much of what has been written exposes the myth that multitasking represents. Instead of making us more productive and having a greater output, we tend to slow down on the very things that were trying to speed up on, and we end up making more errors.

Micro-tasking, by contrast, is the ability to compartmentalize and to focus in quick, short intervals on a variety of items that compete for attention — a vital skill for career professionals. Micro-tasking is effective for quick decisions, and for handling routine and short term tasks term nature. Multitasking is the attempt to handle two important tasks at the same time. It is not to be confused with micro-tasking.

A Skill to Cultivate

Some workers have little choice in the short run but to work in a distracting, noisy environment. Some employees, in particular, were retained to be able to quickly shift their attention from one issue to another, focusing on each issue as needed.

In an interruption-based environment, such as a hospital, police station, retail store, or airline ticket counter, the ability to micro-task is a valuable skill. Throughout the course of a day, a manager in such settings might encounter a variety of people asking questions and voicing concerns. For sale managers micro-tasking can make all the difference in making quota or not.

Tasks that require our sharp attention necessitate that we slow down, focus, keep interruptions at bay, and work as effectively as we can, toward completion. Handling two tasks simultaneously, each of which require sharp attention, is a prescription for poor results.

Be in Demand

Professionals who can micro-task are in demand. Others, who engage in multitasking, are doing themselves and their organizations, a disservice.
