Political theory rarely, if ever, aligns with practice in the real world.
Here’s how the FDA sausage is really made, exemplified perfectly by the recent Pfizer whistleblower.
If you had a nickel for every time some bureaucrat or corporate news actor promised the COVID “vaccines”* are “safe and effective,” you’d have a lot of fiat currency (spend it while you still can before inflation renders it valueless – or, better, convert it to an un-fuckable alternative like gold or Bitcoin).
*The COVID “vaccines” are not actual “vaccines,” which stimulate the synthesis of targeted antibodies using pieces of dead viruses. Rather, the COVID “vaccines” are actually first-generation experimental gene therapies sponsored by Bill Gates. This is evidenced by the CDC’s recent overnight editing of the official definition of “vaccine” to accommodate mRNA gene therapy.
As previously reported by The Daily Bell, we’ve known that the “safe and effective” mantra is nonsense propaganda since the first unfiltered data from legitimate research groups (i.e., ones not on Pfizer’s payroll) began to roll in.
But now, thanks to a courageous whistleblower (who, incidentally, lost her job for her bravery), we have a look behind the curtain to see how Pfizer got its coveted FDA stamp of approval.
“A regional director who was employed at the research organisation Ventavia Research Group [the researchers tasked with vetting the vaccine safety and efficacy] has told The BMJ that the company falsified data, unblinded patients, employed inadequately trained vaccinators, and was slow to follow up on adverse events reported in Pfizer’s pivotal phase III trial….
‘There’s just a complete lack of oversight of contract research organisations and independent clinical research facilities,’ says Jill Fisher, professor of social medicine at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine.”
Read the article in its entirety, which explicitly and painstakingly details the “significant,” “numerous,” “wide-scale” violations of established research protocols throughout the trial process.
This “theory vs reality” dilemma is especially clear in the case of neoliberalism as a governing ideology. In the context of regulation, the theory goes like this:
All that sounds nice on paper. Lots of boomers — products of a golden era of 1950s Americana that is dead and gone — still believe the lie that this is how things work in practice.
Via FDA press release, October 29, 2021:
“Our comprehensive and rigorous evaluation of the data pertaining to the vaccine’s safety and effectiveness should help assure parents and guardians that this vaccine meets our high standards.”
From the BMJ report:
“Since Jackson reported problems with Ventavia to the FDA in September 2020, Pfizer has hired Ventavia as a research subcontractor on four other vaccine clinical trials (covid-19 vaccine in children and young adults, pregnant women, and a booster dose, as well an RSV vaccine trial; NCT04816643, NCT04754594, NCT04955626, NCT05035212). The advisory committee for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is set to discuss the covid-19 paediatric vaccine trial on 2 November.”
How many children are going to die for Pfizer and the FDA’s crimes?
To reiterate, what is demonstrated above is the epic failure of the neoliberal “regulatory” scheme to produce its promised results – i.e. the safeguarding of the public’s welfare.
Isn’t it weird how you could superimpose a press release from Big Pfizer on top of a White House “press briefing” transcript (on top of a CNN corporate “news” report to boot) and they would all look the same?
That’s because they have similar — and more often than not, the exact same — interests.
One hand washes the other.
“Our fathers were our models for God. If our fathers bailed, what does that tell you about God?… You have to consider the possibility that God does not like you…In all probability, he hates you…

The best memes, like that which is below, convey a palpably, visceral truth packaged in a clever way. The typical NPC boomer lives in a bygone era, the paradigm of which they cannot escape. They are incapable, therefore, of accepting the reality that their government is in bed with the same multinational corporate interests it is theoretically tasked with the oversight of.
**Before the lying corporate media “fact-checkers” chime in, here’s the memetic proof.
Regardless of theory, the corporate state regulatory ship is rotten to the waterline. Let’s start over with a parallel society based on mutual interests, one which restores trust and integrity as the cohesive social fabric.
