The more one delves into the global influence of Pharma, the more staggering (and creepy) it gets. But ultimately, the facts still point towards banks and neocons as the drivers.
A recent examination in the US that focused on 23 of the biggest drug makers – and the two major trade associations PhRMA and the Biotechnology Innovation Organization, known as BIO – underlined the array of connections between the lawmakers and the drug companies they regulate last year. Vast sums are involved, and the very clear targeting of decisionmakers makes brutally clear just how little this has got to do with “lobbying”, and how much is naked bribery.
As a result of this, Congress has provided billions of additional dollars to federal health care agencies aimed at helping fund drug company research. The decision from Senate Republicans to award BARDA, an agency largely tasked with funding drug companies’ Covid-19 efforts, an additional $20 billion, is typical: and that comes out at a whopping 14 times more money than it was allocated last year.
Buying legislators is cheap: for a sum total of 548 cheques totalling around $12.8m in 2020, US drugcos totted up over $120 billion in orders and awards – a nearly ten thousand fold return on a tiny “marketing” budget. Needless to say, Pfizer and Astrazeneca were in the vanguard of money-spraying.
In the UK, there is far less “donation” openness: dark money funding is legal under UK law, but campaigners and opposition parties have, with great justification, claimed that a review of British election laws is needed now, calling on the Conservatives in particular to reveal the names of all those who bankrolled the party’s 2019 victory. Don’t hold your breath: there’d be some embarrassments in there….especially when it comes to Big Pharma, and political instructions to NHS bureaucrats that, spookily, so often follow.
Sometimes, such influence comes out in the most obscure ways….and thus goes unnoticed. Recently here, I wrote a largely satirical piece about Edwina Currie and her quite astonishingly stupid advice that everyone should get vaccinated and not “be so selfish”. (Note the similar ‘briefing’ she received to Her Maj Liz2: peer-pressure propaganda is rarely subtle)
But people need to remember that, thirty years ago, Currie was a Junior Health Minister who loudly proclaimed the widespread existence of salmonella in eggs. The potential for veterinary Pharma innoculation of chickens as a result was enormous.
Currie also campaigned – while UK Public Health Minister – to get so-called ‘SNUs’ banned in Europe, despite the fact their development reduced the risk of cancer from tobacco usage by nearly 90%. Big Pharma campaigned for the same thing, because SNUs competed with their nicotine gum and patch solutions to nicotine addiction.
More recently, she was interviewed on Russia Today about Covid19 graft, where once again she went out to bat bigtime for the Pharmcos, and ignored the major question she’d been asked about Vallance and his GSK Pharma shares.
After the Slogpost about her, several residents local to her domain in Derbyshire wrote to me, and one observation particularly struck me:
‘Edwina Currie’s appearance on GMB was cleverly concealed electioneering. She is standing for Derbyshire County Council and has gone from a fairly sceptical position re: the scamdemic – ‘it’s all about money’ – to being full-on pro-vax, pro Government measures….. Her latest electioneering leaflet is beyond grotesque, all the boxes ticked (climate change) and with a photo of her in face-nappy getting her jab.’
One wonders what on earth might have changed her mind.
With money comes power….and for Big Pharma, delusions of grandeur – making demands on client States as if it they might be themselves sovereign States firing from a gunboat offshore.
Pfizer bullying in particular makes clear just how omnipotent globalist behemoths perceive themselves to be:
When faced with one simple but realistic conclusion – that when it comes to wealth, job satisfaction, safety from threat and good health, the neocon-industrial complex has all the bases covered – the idea that the British Government, for example, will be allowed to return the UK to its normal liberal democratic freedoms by mid June seems risibly unlikely. Liberty having been removed by unaccountable health bureaucrats and Pharma pressures behind “vaccines”, the view has been put forward that restricted freedoms and lockdowns were the ‘only way to save the NHS’ and stop a “deadly virus”.
But not only have other NHS procedures (from general surgery to cancer treatment) been strangled, unhygienic hospital environments in particular have caused 40% of all Covid infections.
Nor is the Covid cuckoo restricted to the British public health nest:
‘Patient needs crucified’ is indeed an accurate observation in this La Dépêche headline, but yet again the tone of the editorial is that such sacrifices are necessary in this, ‘our valiant struggle against the virus’.
It’s poppycock – all of it: “valiant struggle” is not the descriptor one would choose for the contest between a naturally resistant species numbering 7.8 billion souls and a virus having to mutate on steroids in order to kill more than 4 (that’s four) people in 100,000. The idea that such a species requires vaccines that don’t vaccinate reliably and, on current data, seem rather better at killing us than the virus itself, is diabolically deranged.
But like it or not, that’s where we are: asphyxiating public health, ignoring safe and effective management drugs, emptying our treasuries, abandoning liberties, prostituting journalism and throwing away rights, easements and liberties that took us a thousand years to screw out of multivariate tyrants.
And for what? Simply money for Big Pharma? If that were the sole reason, I would be astonished. The orchestrated syntax of corporacratic élites simply wouldn’t have been arranged for them alone: such a psy-op can only have been worth it (and organised globally) by three groups of people – Secret State hegemonists, bankers and billionaires.
The first needs bogeymen to further inflate its budgets, the second needs to explain away the “reset” its own behaviours have brought on and the third lot need psychiatric help.
All three need gullible allies in the shape of Useful Idiots – and they have to hand a perfection of such people across the Leftlib spectrum of mad feminism, bogus climate claims, radical ethnicity, delusional collectivism and fluffy bourgeois bohemians. The ones that voted for Macron, Corbyn, Miliband and Biden. (And didn’t that go well)
Nevertheless, a shift is beginning. Whether your metaphorical preference is for Green Shoots or delicate candles in the coal cellar, one or two braver journalists are trying to challenge the narrative. There is one example, for instance, in today’s Daily Telegraph:
Yet even there, one wonders who leaked it and why: Tory anti-Lockdown hawks, or those behind the long game ready to pounce the second another “wave” arrives….the better to ditch Johnson. The BBC (a consistent whore for the latter group) is, quite clearly, just as insane as ever:
Yup, there’s still a long way to go. And the real authors of all this nonsense are rapidly getting their ducks in a row. Stay tuned.
