FOIA Investigation Unearths Documents Showing How The FDA Manipulates Media & Science Press

Published

on

Corporate deception lies at the heart of modern society. People look up to government organizations to protect them from wrongful doings without realizing that corporations have long since stolen their allegiance to the public’s wellbeing. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), for instance, has long been speculated for being a corrupt institution.

While it’s supposed to be in charge of regulating public health and safety, it is really at the mercy of giant pharmaceuticals and drug companies whose main goal is to rake in cash.

The result has been grim: a medical industry that is the leading cause of death in the United States alone, with 12,000 people dying annually as a result of unnecessary surgeries, 98,000 people dying from medical errors, and 88,000 people dying from infections due to hospitals. A further 106,000 people die from adverse side effects from medications.

A Harvard report notes that every week in the U.S. nearly 53,000 people end up in the hospital and 2,400 people die due to prescription drugs. But why is this information, though publicly available, not public knowledge? Why aren’t we seeing, much like we see the new hair colour of a celebrity every five minutes, the alarming truth about the FDA? You can thank embargo for that.

In journalism, embargo refers to a “back-room deal” in which journalists and their sources agree not to publish an article prior to a specific date or time. The FDA goes one step further, however, by implementing a “closely held embargo,” which allows them to control the who, what, when, where, and why of any and all new FDA information privy to exposure for the American public.

This type of embargo keeps reporters from talking to any third parties until a certain date and time. And if reporters do try to seek out answers from other sources, asking questions about what they think of the FDA’s new rules on something, they risk having people trade on that information.

Bush carried on with the Clinton-era policy that forbade the FDA to reveal advance materials or briefings to reporters. The FDA’s use of the “close embargo” reveals that the institution likely wanted to prevent reporters from leaking information. The biggest concern seems to be that, when officials begin giving the go-ahead for this special access, it makes it much easier for the agency to prevent stories they don’t like from being exposed.

The agency is using this embargo with little care, especially regarding things that have market-moving potential. Do you really think a public health announcement requires any sort of embargo? The FDA isn’t focusing on controlling the rate at which market-sensitive information is being released so much as they are protecting themselves by keeping stories they don’t like from getting out, while ensuring stories they have collaborated on with a select group of reporters, with very little information, do shape the public’s viewpoint.

As New York Times former public editor Margaret Sullivan explains, “embargoes that attempt to control sourcing are dangerous because they limit the role of the reporter whose job it is to do a full look at a subject.” “It’s really inappropriate for a source to be telling a journalist whom he or she can and can’t talk to,” she adds.

Vincent Kiernan, a science journalist and dean at George Mason University, says these close-hold embargoes effectively curtail all journalistic power:

[When] you can’t verify the information, you can’t get comment on the information. You have to just keep it among this group of people that I told you about, and you can’t use it elsewhere. In that situation, the journalist is allowing his or her reporting hands to be tied in a way that they’re not going to be anything, ultimately, other than a stenographer.

This is scientific tyranny. The FDA sits high atop its own pedestal, serving like the ruler of its own nation, and we are its puppets.

There are so many examples to dig up, like the FDA keeping a Fox News reporter out of the loop while informing other networks of the embargo. The FDA was about to release new rules on electronic cigarettes, and because the agency knew it would be nearly impossible to keep the story from leaking before they were ready, they put in their dirty work.

“I’ve heard a number of rumors that the FDA will be releasing its proposed e-cigarette regulations on Monday,” began Clara Ritger, then a reporter with the National Journal, on Friday, April 18. “I wanted to see if I could confirm that? If that’s not accurate, do you have a timeline?” Stephanie Yao, who was the FDA press officer at the time, avoided a direct answer: “The proposal is still in draft form and under review. As a matter of policy, the FDA does not share draft rules with outside groups while a rule is still under review.”

Ritger followed up again. “Thank you for following up with the statement,” she responded. “While I know the proposal is still in draft form and under review, for my planning purposes I wanted to find out when the proposed regulations will be coming out?”

Jenny Haliski, then another FDA press officer, responded this time: “Have you subscribed to FDA press announcements? The proposed rule itself will be published in the Federal Register.”

Ritger responded by noting that she signed up, but was also curious as to when the proposed regulations would actually come out.

“The FDA can’t speculate on the timing of the proposed rule,” Haliski answered. But this wasn’t entirely true. Haliski and others in the press office were well aware that the announcement would be made on Thursday, April 24, and that a close-hold embargoes briefing would take place on Wednesday. The invite had already been sent out to “trusted journalists.” Any reporters who didn’t agree were shut out. Fox News was one of those casualties.

The FDA hinders the public’s right to know about scientific fraud and misconduct as well. In a poignant article for Slate exposed this truth:

For more than a decade, the FDA has shown a pattern of burying the details of misconduct. As a result, nobody ever finds out which data is bogus, which experiments are tainted, and which drugs might be on the market under false pretenses. The FDA has repeatedly hidden evidence of scientific fraud not just from the public, but also from its most trusted scientific advisers, even as they were deciding whether or not a new drug should be allowed on the market. Even a congressional panel investigating a case of fraud regarding a dangerous drug couldn’t get forthright answers. For an agency devoted to protecting the public from bogus medical science, the FDA seems to be spending an awful lot of effort protecting the perpetrators of bogus science from the public.

We are left with the potent realization that agencies and government officials control the flow of information that comes our way, ensuring favourable stories make headlines while unfavourable ones never make it to the press. And reporters who cross them are taught a harsh lesson that they are not in power, and they will pay for thinking they ever had the chance to be.

Voters and citizens deserve more, and so they must demand more. The FDA’s corruption needs to be exposed, protested, and destroyed. The agency should revert to using embargoes responsibly and respectfully.

Is Wayfair Really Trafficking Humans?

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Allegations that Wayfair is trafficking humans hit the internet over the past few days as the company was selling utility cabinets, and other items, with human names for upwards of $14,000. Wayfair claims the listings were a mistake.

  • Reflect On:

    Is it our duty as citizens to not simply accept a company's denial of something? Is it important we look past the limited research of fact checkers and ask deeper questions? Where are these realizations leading us?

You have likely heard about it by now, allegations that Wayfair was selling everything from industrial cabinets, desks, pillows and shower curtains at extremely high prices, when in reality they were selling humans. It began as a Reddit thread, where a user who noticed extremely high priced utility cabinets on Wayfair asked if anyone else thought it was weird that there were female names in front of the descriptions of the items.

“Is it possible Wayfair involved in Human trafficking with their WFX Utility collection? Or are these just extremely overpriced cabinets? (Note the names of the cabinets) this makes me sick to my stomach if it’s true,” one Redditor user named PrincessPeach1987 posted.

This sparked a string of discussion into whether or not Wayfair was selling these items as a cover for trafficking humans. Over a couple of days, it blew up into a huge collective research project on the internet, rife full of great questions and at times false information. Nonetheless, any investigative journalist would tell you there is something here that has not yet been explained, and further investigation is a must because these allegations may very well be true.

A screengrab of Wayfair’s alleged website posting cabinets with human names being sold for upwards of $12,000 each.

Oddly, Wayfair’s product names match some children found to be recently missing in the US.

 

Although Wayfair has come out denying allegations of human trafficking and claimed the products were a mistake. Wayfair removed the product images from its website and said it plans to rename the products. The products were named Neriah, Yaritza, Samiyah and Alyvia ranging in price between $12,699.99 and $14,499.99.

“Recognizing that the photos and descriptions provided by the supplier did not adequately explain the high price point, we have temporarily removed the products from site to rename them and to provide a more in-depth description and photos that accurately depict the product to clarify the price point,” Susan Frechette, a Wayfair spokeswoman.

It’s important to note that fact checkers have claimed this story is false, but their position is only based on Wayfair’s statement that it wasn’t true, not actual research and critical thinking. As per usual, no authentic and thorough research was done by fact checkers when it comes to this story.

Here at CE we asked some very critical questions and did a bit of deep diving of our own on this story. Our research is nowhere near done, but we have put some early parts of it into a segment of a show we have on CETV called The Takeaway. You can watch the segment below.

81% of Clinical Trial Volunteers Suffer Reactions to CanSino Biologics’ COVID-19 Vaccine

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Multiple clinical trials for COVID-19 vaccines have shown severe reactions within 10 days after taking the vaccine.

  • Reflect On:

    Should we think twice about taking a rushed vaccine? Is it even necessary given the remarkably low death rate?

What Happened: COVID-19 vaccines have been in production for several months now, and clinical trials have been underway in various countries. One experimental vaccine being developed by CanSino Biologics, Inc. of Tianjin, China, has completed phase 1 of human clinical trials for COVID-19 vaccine (adenovirus type-5 Ad5-nCoV) and involved 108 volunteers, ranging in age from 45–60 years old.

Participants were given various levels of dosing, from low to high. 87 (or 81%) of the 108 participants experienced at least one adverse reaction within seven days after receiving the vaccination. Of the 87 who had reactions, 30 were in the low dose group, 30 were in the middle dose group, and 27 were in the high dose group. Overall, 10 of the participants (just under 10%) experienced Grade 3 adverse reactions, most were in the high dose group.

According to researchers conducting the study on the Phase 1 clinical trial for the Ad5-nCoV vaccine:

The most common injection site adverse reaction was pain, which was reported in 58 (54%) vaccine recipients. Pain was reported in 17 (47%) participants in the low dose group, 20 (56%) participants in the middle dose group, and 21 (58%) participants in the high dose group. The most commonly reported systematic adverse reactions overall were fever (50 [46%]), fatigue (47 [44%]), headache (42 [39%]), and muscle pain (18 [17%]). Fever was reported in 15 (42%) participants in the low dose group, 15 (42%) participants in the middle dose group, and 20 (56%) participants in the high dose group. Headache was reported in 14 (39%) participants in the low dose group, 11 (31%) participants in the middle dose group, and 17 (47%) participants in the high dose group. Muscle pain was reported in seven (19%) participants in the low dose group, three (8%) participants in the middle dose group, and eight (22%) participants in the high dose group.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) describes a Grade 3 adverse event as “severe or medically significant but not immediately life-threatening; hospitalization or prolongation of hospitalization indicated; disabling; limiting self care” such as “bathing, dressing and undressing, feeding self, using the toilet, taking medications.”

CanSino’s Ad5-n-CoV vaccine uses a chimpanzee adenovirus vector that uses the HEK293 cell lines derived from the tissue of an aborted fetus. The HEK293 human fetal cell line, which was designed, developed and is licensed by Canada’s National Research Council (NRC), is also being used to produce the AZD1222 COVID-19 vaccine developed by the University of Oxford’s Jenner Institute.

Why It Matters: COVID-19 vaccines are being rushed to market, and vaccines that are rushed to market never ave a good safety record. Given that even Moderna’s COVID vaccine also showed negative reactions, people should think twice about opting in for the vaccine, especially given COVID-19 is continuing to prove it is not as dangerous or life-threatening as mainstream media has been making it sound.

While the introduction of a vaccine will mean huge dollars for pharmaceutical companies, like the seasonal flu vaccine, it seems unnecessary and potentially can cause more harm than the good it could do. Vaccines for illnesses similar to COVID-19 often don’t protect high percentages of takers from the illness it attempts to prevent.

The Takeaway: There has been a great deal of discussion regarding the introduction of a vaccine, ID card and mandating medicine in one final push towards deep authoritarian control by members of the societal and financial elite. This includes people like Bill Gates. Is this the big push for total control that has long been talked about and built up to ever since 9/11? Is the promise of contact tracing and ID cards “to keep the world safe” really what this is about? Or does the track record on measures like this prove that it’s never about ‘the virus’ and more so about the control that comes as a result of the measures that stick around long after the virus is gone?

Given millions are asking these very questions, people are awakening to truths that they never would have prior to major events like this taking place. In that sense, COVID-19 and the deceit and lies that have gone along with it have been a catalyst for further collective awakening. An awakening that can push us to re-imagine our world completely, and create one where we can truly thrive.

Official: Feds Feared Ghislaine Maxwell Might Kill Herself In Prison

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Federal prosecutors took specific action to avoid having Jeffrey Epstein connected Ghislaine Maxwell kill herself while is custody. This comes after Epstein allegedly killed himself in prison last summer.

  • Reflect On:

    Would high profile people involved with Maxwell and Epstein, like potentially the Clinton's, Trump and Bill Gates, be motivated to want to 'get rid' of them both? This time, are we going to see more names named to encourage the masses to awaken?

What Happened: Associated Press was told in an interview that federal authorities were so worried about Ghislaine Maxwell trying to kill herself while in custody that they took her clothes and bedsheets away and provided her paper attire to wear instead. Maxwell will be locked up in federal jail in New York City pending trial for charges related to Jeffrey Epstein and their dealings with underage sex trafficking.

The Justice Department has added extra security precautions this time around and has brought in federal officials to guard the Bureau of Prisons in charge of ensuring there is adequate protection for Maxwell so other inmates cannot harm Maxwell.

The concerns come partly due to the fact that Jeffrey Epstein allegedly killed himself in a federal jail in Manhattan last summer while in custody on sex trafficking charges Maxwell was also involved in.

No new details have emerged regarding the ongoing investigation against Maxwell.

Why It Matters:

Maxwell is heavily connected to sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein who operated a sex/pedophile ring that tailored to high profile individuals, business people, entertainers and politicians.

Her arrest may be important in helping to bring light to more people connected to Epstein’s dealings which include Hillary and Bill Clinton, Donald Trump, Bill gates and other high profile names.

The Takeaway:

It is more than likely that Jeffrey Epstein did not kill himself in prison. If this is the case, and he was killed, then the same fate may be coming to Maxwell in order to keep ‘powerful’ people protected. However, we are in a time where immense amounts of truth are coming to the surface and humanity is awakening to the reality of the world we truly live in. This is a process we call ‘Breaking The Illusion.’ This is a big step in our collective awakening that inspires change in our world we all know is truly possible.

Is it time for humanity to learn who is truly behind the mass trafficking of children including ritual? Is it time we understand we begin to step out from under the parent-child relationship wee have with politicians and government? All of it is connected, and it’s all part of a greater process of inner expansion we are going through collectively. I spoke about this in great detail here.
