By TLB Contributing Partner: Christina England, BA, Hons – May 27th 2020
On May 22, 2020, an article was published by the Canada Free Press, titled Who pushes the Idea of an epidemic; what are their crimes?. The article was written by one of my favourite journalists, Mr. Jon Rappoport (Who’s article also appear on TLB).
Mr. Rappoport is a US based journalist known for his strong, honest, no-nonsense articles, highlighting crucial evidence, that is being deliberately missed out by the mainstream media.
In this particular article, Rappoport reports evidence-based statistics that he believes are being deliberately covered up by our governments.
These statistics highlight the true numbers of people who are being regularly killed and maimed by approved medical products every day. Shockingly, these statistics will never be highlighted by the mainstream media because the majority receive funding from the pharmaceutical industry.
Rappoport began his article with a few citations. In one of them he stated that:
“July 26, 2000, Journal of the American Medical Association; author, Dr. Barbara Starfield, revered public health expert, at the John Hopkins School of Public Health: “Is US Health really the best in the world?”
Starfield reported that the US medical system kills 225,000 Americans a year. 106,000 as a result of FDA-approved medical drugs, and 119,000 as a result of mistreatment and errors in hospitals. Extrapolate the numbers to a decade: that’s 2.25 million deaths.””
According to Rappoport, in an interview, Starfield openly admitted to him that her estimate of medically caused deaths in America was on the conservative side!
In other words, the figures that she cited in her report could, in fact, only represent a proportion of the true numbers of Americans being killed by big pharma every year!
Rappoport continued his excellent article by citing similar statistics taken from many other reports published in reputable publications. However, given Starfield’s statement, how accurate these figures are in representing the truth is open to interpretation.
Whether accurate or not, these reports highlight the fact that hundreds of thousands of US citizens are being killed and maimed every year by medications and vaccinations that have been approved by the FDA.
It is for this reason that The Liberty Beacon wants to highlight the fact that this is the same US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that general public from around the world are relying on to approve the vaccine that is being fast tracked through the system to supposedly save us all from the deadly COVID-19 virus.
FDA Approval Doesn’t Necessarily Mean that the Drug or Vaccine is Safe
In 2017, Drug Watch published an article titled Misplaced Trust: Why FDA Approval Doesn’t Guarantee Drug Safety. The article, written by Michelle Llamas, highlighted the fact that many of the drugs and vaccines approved by the FDA are based on the evidence provided by the company who makes the product.
Llamas wrote that Michael A. Carome, Director of Public Citizen’s Health Research Group, told Drugwatch that:
“When a new drug is first approved by the FDA, it typically has only been tested in several hundred to a few thousand patients in carefully controlled clinical trials that last several weeks to several months and that exclude many types of patients who will end up being prescribed the drug.”
Carome continued that:
“As a result, only the most common types of serious adverse events will be detected prior to FDA approval.”
In her excellent article outlining the process a drug or vaccine needs to go through to achieve approval, Llamas stated that:
“After a drug company discovers a new compound, it starts the FDA-approval process. The preclinical phase is the drug maker’s discovery and screening phase.
First, it must test the drug on animals to determine its toxicity level. Researchers find out basic safety and efficacy information about the new drug. After it gathers initial data, the drug company submits an Investigational New Drug (IND) application to the FDA. The IND includes basic facts about the drug and a plan for human testing.
After the FDA verifies the planned clinical trials will not put human subjects at unreasonable risk, it moves the drug to the next phase.”
Llamas outlined, in detail, the clinical study phase. She wrote:
“After the FDA verifies the planned clinical trials will not put human subjects at unreasonable risk, it moves the drug to the next phase.”
She stated that after animal studies of the drug have taken place:
“The clinical study phase is when the drug maker conducts tests on human subjects. Clinical trials go through three phases.”
After describing the three testing phases in detail, Llamas highlighted the following quote from The International Journal of Health Services:
“For some drugs, safety concerns are only discovered after they have been on the market, sometimes for several years. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has adopted several policies that could increase the likelihood of approving a potentially unsafe medication.” (own emphasis)
“Big Pharma is fond of criticizing the FDA for not approving drugs quickly enough and depriving patients of life-saving medications. In reality, the FDA approves drugs faster than its counterparts in Europe, Canada and Japan. In the 1980s and 1990s, the FDA began new programs that fast-tracked the approval of certain drugs.
While this might mean some patients benefit from new therapies, the speed at which the FDA approves drugs can have dangerous consequences.” (own emphasis)
Fast Tracking a Risky Business
In certain circumstances, the FDA are asked by the pharmaceutical company to fast track a drug or vaccine. This is usually because the drug or vaccine has been designed to fulfill an unmet medical need.
Llamas explained that whilst this means that some patients could benefit from the new drug or vaccine, the speed at which the FDA approves drugs can have dangerous consequences.
She wrote that:
“Accelerated approvalallows earlier approval of drugs that fill an unmet medical need and uses “surrogate endpoints” to determine effectiveness. A surrogate endpoint is an indicator (for example, blood tests, X-rays) used to tell if a treatment works but does not necessarily guarantee it works. For example, if a cancer drug seems to make a tumor smaller, the FDA concludes it is effective even if there is no clinical trial to prove the drug actually extends life expectancy.
The Fast Track Program reduces approval time for drugs that treat serious or life-threatening diseases. Drugmakers can submit portions of the application instead of providing the information all at once.”
These two paragraphs contain information that The Liberty Beacon believe is extremely important, especially when you consider the fact that governments worldwide are encouraging the FDA to fast track an untested vaccine for COVID-19 as quickly as possible.
If this is allowed to happen and the pharmaceutical companies can be selective in what information that they submit to the FDA, then the COVID-19 vaccine could become the most dangerous vaccination ever to be approved.
Three People in COVID 19 Vaccine Trial Suffer Adverse Reactions
In fact, according to one report, three people in the current trials for the Moderna Therapeutics COVID 19 vaccine, suffered a systemic adverse reaction to the vaccine.
This information was revealed in an article published by STAT News. Author Matthew Herper, wrote:
“Haydon has spoken about the vaccine on CNN and CNBC. He even said he’d volunteer to be exposed to the novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, if researchers want to test to see if the vaccine was actually effective. But up until now he has left out a key detail: He is, apparently, one of three people in the trial who had a systemic adverse reaction to the vaccine.
Twelve hours after receiving his second dose, he developed a fever of more than 103 degrees, sought medical attention, and, after being released from an urgent care facility, fainted in his home. He recovered within a day.”
If Llamas is correct, and the pharmaceutical industry is permitted to be selective in what information they can submit to the FDA when seeking a fast track approval, then it is possible that this fact could be conveniently missed out in their submissions.
I would like to finish with a statement that Ms. Llamas included in her article:
“The FDA is supposedly a watchdog agency mandated to protect the public from dangerous and ineffective drugs. In fact, the FDA is ineffective and dangerous to the public.”
