Supreme Court Legislation Exempts Pharmaceutical Companies From Disclosing Risks Associated With Products

Published

“The learned intermediary doctrine is itself an exception to the manufacturer’s traditional duty to warn consumers directly of the risks associated with any product.”  (source)

It’s called the “learned intermediary doctrine,” and it’s important to drug manufactures because it allows them to avoid warning consumers directly about their products when it comes to the risks associated with their use. Instead, these warnings are (supposedly) given to the physician, who lends their trust over to the corporation in the hopes that they are disclosing all information, who in turn is then responsible (the doctor) for relaying these risks to their patient. It takes all responsibility and liability (regarding risks associated with pharmaceutical products like vaccines and prescription drugs) away from the drug manufacturer, and places it solely on the physician.

“Thus, prescription drug manufacturers’ duty to warn consumers flows through the patients’ prescribing physicians, not directly to consumers.” (source)

This is a scary thought, given the fact that the education doctors receive regarding all medicines comes directly from the drug manufactures themselves. Most of the time, doctors are educated on how the drug works to heal the patient and what biological processes take place with regards to the disease. In their own practices, some doctors accept the drugs without ever questioning their validity, giving complete trust over to the the pharmaceutical companies. Many doctors often assume that these drugs have passed through government safety checks by, for example, the Food and Drug Administration. It is still not properly acknowledged that pharmaceutical companies have a hand in dictating governmental policy, or that there are monetary incentives offered for dishonesty, especially when it comes to the health industry.

This is not just conspiracy theory, there are countless examples that clearly show why we cannot trust pharmaceutical companies to properly relay information regarding the risks associated with their products to doctors or to people who use their products and don’t require a doctor’s visit. I am talking about scientific fraud.

“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgement of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of the New England Journal of Medicine” (considered to be one of the most prestigious peer-reviewed medical journals in the world). – Dr Marcia Angell, Physician, Author, Former Editor in Chief of the NEJM (source)

Documents obtained by Lucija Tomljenovic, PhD, from the Neural Dynamics Research Group in the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences at the University of British Columbia,ddd reveal that vaccine manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies, and health authorities have known about multiple dangers associated with vaccines but chose to withhold them from the public. This is scientific fraud, and suggests that this practice continues today. (source)

This is no secret. The list literally goes on and on, with many examples to choose from. And again, the law states that relaying the risks associated with these drugs are the doctors’ responsibility.

“For prescription drug manufacturers, the rationale behind the doctrine is based largely on the fact that prescription drugs’ actions are complex and the prescribing physician is the one best able to determine the drug’s potential benefits and risks for a particular patient.” Humble Sand & Gravel, Inc. v. Gomez, 146 S.W.3d 170, 191 (Tex. 2004) (stating that the doctrine is based on the idea “that it is better for the patient for the warning to come from his or her physician”); Restatement (Third) of Torts: Prods. Liab. § 6(d)(1) cmt. b (1998) (“The rationale supporting this ‘learned intermediary’ rule is that only health-care professionals are in a position to understand the significance of the risks involved and to assess the relative advantages and disadvantages of a given form of prescription-based therapy.’)” (source)

There are also exceptions to this law, where pharmaceutical companies provide health products directly to the consumer. In this case, they do not have to go through a physician. Examples include contraceptive pills, vaccines, and more.

“Modern realities have rendered the learned intermediary doctrine obsolete because its application allows pharmaceutical manufacturers to escape their traditional duty to warn at the expense of consumer health and well-being.” (source)

One example is the polio vaccine, where a (1968) court held that manufacturers of the polio vaccine had an obligation to warn patients directly of the fatal risks that are associated with vaccination. This is a great example where there was little to no physician supervision (still common today) when it comes to mass immunization clinics. In this case, the learned intermediary doctrine was inapplicable to drugs being directly marketed to consumers. Reasons include:

  • Informed consent requires a patient-based decision rather than the paternalistic approach of a bygone era
  • Many of the drugs marketed directly to consumers are lifestyle drugs that are not medically necessary, so it is not the physician weighing the risks and benefits but rather the patients
  • Drug manufacturers are already spending billions on advertising to consumers, so it is clear that they have effective means of communicating with consumers.

Why Are Pharmaceutical Companies Above The Law? Why Are They Constantly Exempt From Any Wrongdoing? 

What we are looking at here are measures put in place that completely protect pharmaceutical companies. Another great example is The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act.

The mid-1970’s saw an increased focus on personal health, and accordingly, more people became concerned about vaccine safety. Several lawsuits were filed against vaccine manufacturers and healthcare providers by people who believed they had been injured by vaccines, and the evidence presented in court was good enough to win.

As a result, this act was developed to protect any pharmaceutical company, doctor, or medical association from any “fault.” It’s not about pointing fingers, many people really do believe that every vaccine is fine to inject into somebody. Instead of suing the vaccine manufacturer directly, parents have to undergo complex legal proceedings, asking the government to admit that the vaccine was responsible for their child’s injury and asking for compensation for the child’s care.

Pharmaceutical companies are exempt from participating in these proceedings, and tax payers are the ones who pay for all the vaccine-related damages, of which there have been many. Below is a great video explaining the process in detail. You can learn more about that here.

Again, ask yourself – why are so many laws, mandates, and programs put in place to completely protect pharmaceutical companies from any wrongdoing whatsoever? Think about that for a moment.

CDC May Officially Downgrade COVID From An ‘Epidemic’ Due To Remarkably Low Death Rate

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The CDC is on the edge of downgrading COVID-19 from a 'pandemic' due to very low death rates. As time has gone on, hysteria over COVID-19 has not been backed by emerging data.

  • Reflect On:

    Has COVID-19 been another catalyst for humanity to begin questioning why we trust the sources we do? Is it time for us to activate self-responsibility and begin setting aside the parent-child relationship we have with government?

What Happened: The COVID-19 death rate across the US has now been confirmed to be so low that it’s on the edge of no longer being qualified as a pandemic, and therefore the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is poised to soon stop calling the virus an “epidemic.” The primary reason why confirmed death rates are so low is due to extreme amounts of testing in the United States. Although most outside the box thinking people and health professionals knew a couple weeks in that the death rate was extremely low, it has taken up until now for the CDC to admit to this position.

“Based on death certificate data, the percentage of deaths attributed to pneumonia, influenza or COVID-19 (PIC) decreased from 9.0% during week 25 to 5.9% during week 26, representing the tenth week of a declining percentage of deaths due to PIC,” the agency wrote on its website.

Media and government continue to report on ‘new cases’ every single day as testing continues. The challenging part is, they are not sharing how many of these cases are symptomatic or result in any form of hospitalization. Therefore, simply reporting on how many new confirmed cases there are is doing nothing but rile the public up into fear for no reason. The vast majority of “confirmed cases” are people who have no symptoms and have no idea they even had antibodies for the virus. Not to mention the likely inaccuracy of COVID testing.

Why it matters: As many outside mainstream consensus spoke about since late February, testing results show that more people have likely contracted COVID-19 than testing data reflects. This means even way back then, the mortality rate for COVID-19 was lower than any of the extreme estimates that came out of government and health agencies. All of which have been proven wrong along the way.

Those who have questioned the narrative, like us here at CE, have had to deal with shadow banning on social media, fact checking fallacies, and demonetization as a result of reporting on the facts instead of the hysteria. The sad part is, everything we have reported on and suggested would soon happen did and yet we have been constantly ‘punished’ for it. Death rates were not as high as thought, testing is not accurate, and this virus is not near as serious as it’s being made out to be – point blank, there was no need for a lockdown.

But given there was a lockdown, we can look to either complete government incompetency or the fact that there is likely much more going on here behind the scenes than many people want to admit to. Further to that, and going deeper, we can ask how this lockdown and entire virus situation was actually serving the collective to see what’s really going on in our world and why it might be time to bring about some BIG change.

Remember, it’s not the people vs. the deep state, they simply play a role in pushing the evolution of consciousness. I cover this in great detail here.

The Takeaway: More statistics and events are coming to the surface showing that we have been misled greatly about the recent ‘pandemic’, and even though many people in alternative media and alternative health said since day 1 that this was fishy and made no sense, mainstream media and government continued on.

How is it that people with so few resources and access knew the truth before massive and ‘trusted’ sources did? Was it another catalyst for humanity to begin questioning why they trust these sources? Was it another catalyst for people to begin listening to well backed and grounded ‘alternative’ or ‘conspiracy’ ideas as they consistently turn out to be true?

Given the fact our infrastructures collapsed so quickly, is it an opportunity for us to re-imagine our world? Re-imagine what’s possible and truly question the type of world we wish to live in? Is it time for us to activate self responsibility and begin setting aside the parent-child relationship we have with government?

It’s all been a catalyst.

Judge Orders The Dakota Access Pipeline To Be Shut Down

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    On Monday, A U.S. District Court ordered Energy Transfer LP to shut down and empty their pipeline, known as the Dakota Access Pipeline.

  • Reflect On:

    Why do we continue to use outdated and unnecessary means for energy production. Why is our economy an oil based economy when it doesn't have to be? Why do we have solutions that never see the light of day?

What Happened: On Monday, A U.S. District Court ordered Energy Transfer LP to shut down and empty their pipeline, known as the Dakota Access Pipeline.  It just so happens to be their largest one, and it also represents a big win for Native American’s and the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, as well as citizens from all over the world who have fought the line’s route access through a critical water supply.

It’s amazing how many years have already passed since there was a mass gathering in North Dakota to stop this pipeline. Corporate America brought in the police to try and disperse the gathering. One night, a small plane spraying unknown substances flew over the gathering at night, I know this because I was there, along with CE founder Joe Martino.  There were SWAT teams everywhere. All of this for a peaceful gathering? We spent days covering the story, and all we saw was intimidation, violence, and psychological warfare tactics in order to disperse the crowd so that the company could continue building their pipeline.

This always seems to happen to peaceful protestors.

Corporate America eventually got what they wanted. Many people were thrown in jail, people were injured, all resulting from a peaceful protest. The gathering was shut down and the fight to stop the pipeline went to court, during which time the pipeline was in full operation.

Bloomberg is reporting that the pipeline must be shut down by August 5th.

The U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia said a crucial federal permit for Dakota Access fell too far short of National Environmental Policy Act requirements to allow the pipeline to continue operating while regulators conduct a broader analysis the court ordered in a previous decision. The ruling scraps a critical permit from the Army Corps of Engineers, and requires the pipeline to end its three-year run of delivering oil from North Dakota shale fields to an Illinois oil hub. Judge James E. Boasberg said Dakota Access must shut down the pipeline and empty it of oil by Aug. 5.(source)

We will have to wait and see if The Army Corps and Justice Department intends to appeal the decision.

Why This Matters

This goes to show what we can do when we come together. Despite the fact that it’s taken years, and damage has been done, look what’s happened, it’s been halted once again. That being said, at the time the pipeline was being built and during the period it was moving oil, it was quite clear that citizens around the entire planet were against this. So I ask you, do we live in a democracy? Do citizens really have any influence at all on decision making, or is our consciousness manipulated to accept certain measures, like pipelines, as necessary? Why doesn’t planet Earth come first? Why does it take cutting through so much red ape, and so much time to try and stop such measures? What kind of system have we created for ourselves? One that protects the corporations and punishes the citizenry and mother Earth?

We don’t have to accept this.

The coronavirus is another great example of what we are capable of. Despite the fact that we were forced into lockdown by governments, billions of people, together, still collectively did it. The point is, we can accomplish great things together, as one. Imagine if billions of people around the world decided the world should shut down for one week in order to, clean up our oceans for example.

Why don’t our governments do that?

We can do anything, we have unlimited potential. We are in a time where we are being asked to wake up, come together, re-imagine our reality, discuss it, explore it, build it and use our potential to create a human experience where everybody can thrive, including mother Earth. And yes, it’s possible, we have the solutions and they’ve been available for years. The only issue is human consciousness, and the barriers we’ve built that prevent these solutions from manifesting.

Bill Gates: ‘Certificates For The Vaccinated Will Be Created To Help Facilitate Global Travel’

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A few months ago, Bill Gates hinted to the idea that those who aren't vaccinated may not be able to travel.

  • Reflect On:

    Do we really live in a democracy when so many decisions are made without the consent of the majority of the citizenry?

According to Bill Gates,

“Eventually what we’ll have to have is certificates of who’s a recovered person, who’s a vaccinated person […] Because you don’t want people moving around the world where you’ll have some countries that won’t have it under control, sadly. You don’t want to completely block off the ability for people to go there and come back and move around. So eventually there will be this digital immunity proof that will help facilitate the global reopening up.” (source)

He expressed his predictions in an interview (linked above) that took place a couple of months ago. In the interview he also suggested that people should have some sort of digital identification that shows their vaccination status, and that people without this type of “proof” wouldn’t be able to travel.

Whether these intentions are for the coronavirus vaccine or perhaps some other medication down the road, this pandemic is a great example of how close we can come and are coming to mandating ‘medicine.’

It’s no secret that vaccine hesitancy is at all all time high right now, there is a growing hesitancy among scientists and physicians as well, which is why some of them are coming together to support informed consent in a world that continues to grow full of vaccine mandates. This was a sentiment recently expressed at the World Health Organization’s vaccine safety summit. You can read more about that here and access a link to the full conference if interested.

Vaccine hesitancy will no doubt result in a large portion of many populations that do not receive the vaccine. To me, it’s quite clear that for these reasons governments will not, and cannot fully, mandate the vaccine, but when it comes to travel and perhaps other public activities, they may do so if we continue to allow it.

Or perhaps they are still warming people up to the idea of a mandated vaccine? Are mandatory masks in public settings a precursor to a mandatory vaccine in a public setting? 

Why This Matters

It’s important to recognize and acknowledge what happens when we give our power away to government health authorities. Decisions are made for us that are not always agreeable to a large minority, and in some cases sometimes it seems like a majority of the population. When it comes to vaccines, despite the fact that there are many injuries and many safety concerns, many of them are required for children to go to school.

This is why the so many people have been questioning vaccines so deeply. Regardless of what government and media say, it’s not about “pro-vax” or “anti-vax,” it’s simply about looking at the science and acknowledging the fact that vaccines are not a one size fits all product.

For example, according to a MedAlerts search of the FDA Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) database, as of 2/5/19, the cumulative raw count of adverse events from measles, mumps, and rubella vaccines alone was: 93,929 adverse events, 1,810 disabilities, 6,902 hospitalizations, and 463 deaths. The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act has paid out approximately $4 billion to compensate families of vaccine-injured children. As astronomical as the monetary awards are, they’re even more alarming considering HHS claims that only an estimated 1% of vaccine injuries are even reported to the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS).

That’s just one of many examples.

Why don’t our federal health regulatory agencies acknowledge the concerns people are having about vaccines instead of simply using ridicule and character assassination? Why is there a campaign to paint those who question vaccine safety as conspiracy theorists?

For example, The Physicians for Informed Consent (PIC), a group of doctors and scientists from around the world who have come together to support informed consent when it comes to mandatory vaccine measures put out some excellent downloadable PDF’s with regards to the MMR vaccine. One of them deals with “what parents need to know about the measles vaccine” and another one presents the information that has them questioning if the MMR vaccine is safer than the measles. They point out that the chances of dying from measles and make many comparisons to the vaccine. You can can read more about that here.

Are these doctors and scientists truly just “conspiracy theorists?”

The Takeaway

There will be a in the next generation or so a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them but will rather enjoy it. – Aldous Huxley

Not only is the comment above coming true, many of us seem to enjoy it because our consciousness is suppressed to the point where we feel it’s necessary. With vaccines, and now masks, many people feel that one has a responsibility to follow mandates because we are made to believe that it protects other people. The idea that an unvaccinated child is a danger to a vaccinated child is also very flawed. Sure, if we had vaccines that were 100 percent safe and 100 percent effective we could perhaps achieve herd immunity through a vaccine, but vaccines have been around for decades and we have not yet we still have achieved herd immunity through them.

At the end of the day, people are made to feel like they are uninformed and mistaken for questioning the status quo. Is this the type of world we want to live in? One that seems to be guarded by the ‘ministry of truth’ or, in this case, a digital authoritarian Orwellian ‘fact-checker’ that’s patrolling the internet silencing some of the world’s foremost experts on this topic? One where a view that opposes our government regulatory agencies, one that is backed by evidence, is punished and ridiculed?

What’s really going on here, and why, as a collective, do we accept it? If billions of us can come together and agree to a lockdown, or at least comply to it, then why can’t we come together for all of the other important issues that need our attention? Why do we only do what we are told to do by our governments? Why do we continue to give our power away and hand over our trust to entities that seem to be lacking connection and care? Why do we constantly rely on these entities to take care of our problems for us and make decisions for us?

Today, it’s not about executing the will of the people, it’s about controlling the will of the people and convincing them your actions are justified. This is what Bill Gates, among other very powerful people, seem to be doing right now.
