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?

Joe Biden Bingo

Here is a tool which could help you to stay tuned on broadcasts featuring our acting president

Published

Even if you caught only snippets of Joe Biden’s recent press conference, you know that his mental decline continues unabated. It’s unlikely that even a handful of Americans watched the event in its entirety. Who would want to waste their time?

What’s occurring is a national travesty, and it is increasingly evident to larger portions of our population that Joe Biden is being abused as an elder, as he abuses others.

Throughout his 365 days in office, Biden has struggled to pronounce a word and then offers a non-sequitur to what he was originally saying. With regularity he tells stories that are simply false. He refers to his vice president as president. He insults vast segments of the population. He stumbles and stammers repeatedly. He checks his watch, fumbles with his mask, and snaps at people when he doesn’t like a question. And those are the least of his faux pas with audiences.

Covid

China; Hidden Dragon, or Paper Tiger

Published

on

With all the ongoing issues in America today it might seem superfluous to worry about China. Between crime in the streets, the latest Covid variant, lock downs, forced vaccinations and corrupt at every level of government it might seem we have enough to worry about. But, what if it’s all related and part of a plan? What if we have always been at war with Eurasia but were never informed?

First let’s take a look at militarily how the opponents stack up.  On paper and in total dollars the USA outspends China by more than double. ($738 Billion Vs $252 billion). China has more than five times the number of citizens available for military service. Surprisingly at this time China and the USA are about equal in terms of ground forces equipment. (IE: Tanks, armored fighting vehicles, rockets)  It would appear that our air forces are about equal in numbers but we have double the number of helicopters and China has twice as many fighter aircraft as we do.  In sheer numbers China has the USA out classed in the naval department. America has more aircraft carriers by a factor of 5, but China holds the lead in fast attack frigates, corvettes and a slight lead in submarines.

As for nuclear weapons the USA has a total of 6,500 warheads but only 1,600 are currently deployed. China is a little harder to asses since they are not part of the Nuclear Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and do not reveal the total numbers of weapons they have. (For reference Russia has 6,490 warheads down from 40,000 during the height of the cold war. Currently has 1,600 deployed)

On paper it would seem the two super powers are evenly matched. But let’s not make the mistake most military generals do by fighting the last war. So much of their energy is studying the last conflict, the latest’s one always surprises them. (see Blitzkrieg).  Some of the more forward thinking realize the next war will be economic. Possibly combined with a cyber-attack. Today we are already seeing the probes of our technology driven economy. Most of these come from China. For a listing of these one only needs to go to the Center for Strategic International Studies. (CSIS).

In planning for a global conflict to come it seems the CCP is relying upon the oriental virtues of planning and patience, while the western world is into instant gratification. While the USA exports the virtues of multiculturalism and LGBTQ rights around the world the CCP is investing in roads, bridges, dams, ports and  infrastructure. By loaning money to developing nations at exorbitant rates and requiring Chinese labor and materials they are copying the colonial model sans the hospitals and schools.

Since 2013 China has been following a five year plan (China loves those five year plans) called the Belt and Road initiative. Interestingly announced during a visit to Kazakhstan. The goal is to build a Chinese centered international order. It is also known as the Silk Road Economic Belt, or the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road. The names are a nod to the historic trade routes to and from the western world to China, popularized by the travels of Marc Polo.  In 2019 a second Belt to road five year plan was instituted to quell the negative press and concentrate on a more “green and sustainable” era. As of 2020 140 of 193 countries and 32 international agencies have signed up.

For some of these countries the BRI turns into a debt trap. When they can’t pay up they are forced to turn over the very projects the Chinese financed. Uganda has turned over its international airport. Sri Lanka has handed over a large port. Djibouti is about to hand over another, adjacent to our largest port in Africa. Zambia is negotiating the turnover of their largest coper mine to help restructure their debt. In spite of all this other countries in South America are signing on to the BRI. Cuba has found another sugar daddy in the CCP’s initiative. Something to keep in mind all these project must follow the China’s National Defense law that mandates civilian infrastructure projects closely related to national defense shall meet national defense requirements and functions and must be surrendered for military use when needed.

North America is not immune to the prospect of “easy” money granted by the CCP. Canada has not signed on to the BRI but has welcomed Chinese investment on several fronts. Mostly in British Columbia and Bunavat. In the United States the CCP hasn’t been lending money but investing. Investing in politicians, Hollywood, Newspapers, News organizations and Colleges. They own internet companies like Tic-Tok, Riot Games, and We Chat. Brick and mortar companies like Smithfield, the Waldorf Astoria and Continental Aerospace Technologies. So much money is invested in American companies that you rarely see any criticism of the Communist countries policies. Global warming, China gets a pass, child labor laws, China need not apologize, slave labor, well what slave labor, and human rights abuses don’t see any there.

So what does it all mean to America and its citizens? As we move closer to China’s social credit system who will stand up and denounce it? The same politicians that accepted enough money to keep them in office? The news organizations that rely on CCP money to keep them afloat? Just look at how many objected to Covid being referred to as the China flu. Speaking of the China flu, what if it was released by China in an effort to destroy the economies of most nations and allow them to take control of strategic ports and airports around the world. Who would stand up if China decides that Taiwan could no longer be tolerated and will be annexed?

It would seem China is a paper Tiger. A paper tiger made of Yen. They have bought and paid for large sections of the United State economy. You could say the same for Europe.  China has ensured that every third world country that is rich in the resources owes a substantial portion of their gross domestic production to the CCP. You don’t need to be a dragon when you own all the paper.
