The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is one of the most important agencies in the U.S. federal government. Aside from ensuring that many food products are safe for consumption, the FDA is also responsible for ensuring that “vaccines and other biological products and medical devices intended for human use are safe and effective.”
If this vital agency fails to do its job properly, the health and welfare of the American public can be put at risk. So, what happens if the FDA accidentally or purposefully fails to do its job? Usually, very little is done. However, even more disturbing is why the FDA seems to make so many bad decisions.
It seems unconscionable that medical experts could make so many wrong decisions related to medicines. One recent example is the abundance of dangerous side effects from the COVID vaccines. Understandably, a pandemic helped compel the FDA to make faster than normal decisions.
But why would trusted public health officials put the public at risk without telling them? On January 26, the nonprofit Children’s Health Defense (CHD) filed a lawsuit in federal court. The CHD’s suit alleges that “the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has been sued for withholding the results of key COVID-19 vaccine safety analyses.”
The idea that the federal agency could make such a monumental blunder is preposterous, unless it was done on purpose. Some experts believe that it’s impossible for the agency to do its job properly because the FDA is compromised.
There are those who insist that the FDA’s budget is insufficient to tackle the massive degree of responsibility it has. Likewise, records show that the FDA receives millions from the drug industry. Financial documents disclose an estimate of $400 million or more from Big Pharma. That would equate to nearly a quarter of the FDA’s budget.
Talk about heavy financial influence to manipulate a critical regulatory agency. These sums do not even take into account the massive number of Big Pharma lobbyists in Washington, D.C. bending the ear of Congress. Many of the legislative decisions made by Congress dictate the methods and practices at federal agencies.
Clearly, the amount of influence big pharmaceutical companies have in Washington, D.C., is impacting how the FDA makes decisions about drug safety. But this time, they got caught. The CHD’s lawsuit is demanding the results from the FDA’s analyses of the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).
An important part of the FDA’s vaccine monitoring protocols is a pledge to analyze Empirical Bayesian (EB) data. They are required to look for any safety signals being triggered. Any adverse signals will alert the FDA of potential vaccine problems.
The FDA and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) are entrusted with researching these signals to verify an issue or determine the signal to be unrelated to vaccination. Currently, both the FDA and CDC have stonewalled the CHD’s request for public information. Therefore, the lawsuit is attempting to force them to reveal why they’re withholding the data.
Kim Witczak is the co-founder of WoodyMatters. WoodyMatters is a nonprofit pushing for a more accountable FDA and drug safety system. Witczak said, “The secrecy is unacceptable for an agency that said it is transparent with the public about vaccine safety.” Texas Congressman Ronny Jackson, a former White House physician, agrees.
If there’s nothing wrong, why would the FDA be reluctant to release this information? They won’t release it because something is wrong; very wrong. Americans will be shocked to find out how much pressure Big Pharma places on the FDA and CDC to conceal the truthful ineffectiveness and potential danger of their hastily approved vaccines.
Big Pharma has made billions off the pandemic. There’s now a clear sign that upper-level Big Pharma executives may be purposefully triggering the strange number of COVID variants still plaguing the world. Drug companies spend more on lobbying Congress and federal agencies than any other business in the world. Do we really believe this is all just a coincidence?
