CDC and WHO Corrupt Financial Entanglements with the Vaccine Industry
Contributed to TLB by: The Children’s Health Defense Team
Recently, the World Health Organization (WHO) released a statement that they had worked with Facebook to curb vaccine “misinformation.” Therefore, it appears that an international organization is working with a social media company to usurp free speech and accountable democracy in America.
In the first Global Vaccination Summit in Brussels on Sept. 12, 2019, Jason Hirsch, Facebook’s public policy manager, said the company was taking its role in the area “very seriously”. “We want to take a two-part approach to improving the quality of information about vaccinations on our platform,” he said. “The first thing that we are doing is reducing the distribution of misinformation about vaccinations and the second thing that we are doing is increasing exposure to credible, authoritative content on vaccinations.” But, is it Facebook’s role to decide what information people get to read regarding vaccine safety?
Like Bernadine Healy, former director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Children’s Health Defense believes that the public is smart and can be given the facts and make up their own minds about what is true and what isn’t. We are completely confident that the vaccine facts and the science are on our side. We invite any and all to peruse our website and share any articles with friends that you think will help them make decisions.
“Censorship reflects society’s lack of confidence in itself. It is a hallmark of an authoritarian regime.” – Potter Stewart
Our guiding mission is to stop the chronic health epidemics affecting children today. We believe vaccines that over-stimulate the immune system are one of the leading causes of these epidemics. As the 2013 IOM Report concluded in their Summary, (bottom of page 5), that the entire Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Childhood Vaccine Schedule has never been studied for safety, we believe that, rather than trying to censor Children’s Health Defense viewership, we suggest WHO and CDC spend their money and time on real science and vaccine safety.
It is regrettable that instead of seriously addressing the issue and substantively addressing parents’ legitimate concerns, WHO and the CDC with the assistance of Facebook have chosen instead to try to silence critical and dissident voices rather than facilitating the exchange of ideas that is so necessary for humanity to progress.
Here are the major concerns:
There is corruption and conflicts of interest in the CDC, FDA, WHO and NIH whereby big pharma has influence and power over the interpretation of the outcomes/science and the related safety of vaccines. The Institute of Medicine (IOM) has persistently urged HHS to perform such studies since 1991. HHS has assiduously refused. There is, therefore, no way to scientifically claim that a specific vaccine averts more harms, including deaths, than it causes.
The latest data and science show that specific vaccines are unequivocally not safe. Yet government officials – with well-documented conflicts of interest with the $50 billion vaccine industry – systematically obscure the risks while exaggerating the benefits of vaccines.
The government has quietly admitted culpability by paying out over $4 billion for thousands of injuries and deaths caused by vaccines underscoring that vaccine injuries can and do happen, including autism. And, an HHS-funded study concluded that fewer than 1% of vaccine injuries are even reported.
Big Pharma is exerting influence over WHO, FDA and CDC to fast track and short cut safety studies in order to gain more profits faster. Big Pharma has zero financial risk when children get vaccine injured because the government prevents victims from suing big pharma – resulting in big pharma not being concerned about child vaccine safety.
State initiatives mandating vaccines regardless of family pre-conditions and/or religious beliefs, if left unchecked, will mentally impair an even greater percentage of our child population resulting in one of the greatest human biological experiments in modern history.
The pharmaceutical industry enforces policy discipline through agency budgets. The World Health Organization (WHO) gets roughly half its budget from private sources, including Pharma and its allied foundations. And CDC, frankly, is a vaccine company; it owns 56 vaccine patents and buys and distributes $4.6 billion in vaccines annually through the Vaccines for Children program, which is over 40% of its total budget. Further, Pharma directly funds, populates and controls dozens of CDC programs through the CDC foundation. A British Medical Journal editorial excoriates CDC’s sweetheart relationship with pharma quotes UCLA Professor of Medicine Jerome R. Hoffman “most of us were shocked to learn the CDC takes funding from industry… It is outrageous that industry is apparently allowed to punish the CDC if the agency conducts research that has potential to cut into profits.”
Collected from many sources, this page lists the conflicts of interest and financial entanglements of the WHO and the CDC that should be considered when determining the validity of statements made by either organization. This compilation doesn’t even include the twenty seven years of pharmaceutical industry criminal and civil penalties from 1991 through 2017 reported in a Public Citizen expose.
CrossFit Settles Lawsuit With HHS After Agency Releases Emails Showing Continued Efforts to Conceal Donations – In a situation that parallels the Center for Disease Control’s (CDC’s) close relationships with vaccine manufacturers while continuing to promote vaccines as “safe and effective”, CrossFit, Inc. has uncovered documentation confirming large contributions from Coca-Cola and Pepsi to the CDC Foundation that the agency has deliberately kept from the public. CrossFit notes that these companies have contributed to Type 2 diabetes, liver disease, opioid addiction, and other illnesses and that conflicts of interest such as this are “endemic” within both the CDC and its parent agency, the Department of Health and Human Services.
CDC & FDA Committee Members Have Financial Conflict of Interest with Vaccine Pharmaceuticals – A Congressional Government Reform Committee report criticized the FDA and the CDC for routinely allowing scientists with conflicts of interest to serve on two influential advisory committees that make recommendations on vaccine policy.
The Normalization of Corruption—Big Pharma Takes “Tobacco Tactics” to a New Level – The 21st century organized crime lords—the pharmaceutical industry—have risen to unprecedented dominion over humanity. These renegade modern-day, too-big-to-fail outlaws have mastered and expanded the industry corruption playbook to levels that make the tobacco industry seem relatively tame and honest in comparison. Big Pharma has methodically choreographed a stealthy take-over of our most fundamental democratic institutions necessary to maintain industry in check: the regulatory institutions, the legislatures, politicians, free press/media, academia and objective science. Big Pharma today not only influences legislation for drugs, but the vaccine producers are also guaranteed a self-serving, automatically-captured consumer market in the form of 74 million children to whom the government mandates their limited-liability vaccine products in unprecedented numbers.
Close Ties and Financial Entanglements: The CDC-Guaranteed Vaccine Market – The CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) is responsible for issuing annual vaccine recommendations for the U.S. civilian population, however it’s industry-beholden membership roster reads like a “who’s who” of the individuals and organizations who spearhead the nation’s vaccine business. Longstanding conflicts of interest that hold ACIP members captive to pharmaceutical industry interests are well known and well documented.
UPI Investigates: The vaccine conflict – In the early 2000s, a four-month investigation by United Press International (UPI) identified “a web of close ties”and financial entanglements between CDC’s ACIP members and vaccine companies, including: Sharing vaccine patents; oOwning vaccine company stock; getting research funding or money to monitor vaccine testing; Receiving funding for academic departments or appointments.
CDC Director Resigns, but CDC Conflicts of Interest are Par for the Course – Media outlets are announcing the abrupt resignation of Brenda Fitzgerald, the physician appointed in July, 2017 to head the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The resignation follows on the heels of reporting by Politico, which uncovered conflicts of interest including a personal financial stake in companies such as Merck and Bayer. This only illustrates, in microcosm, the CDC’s longstanding willingness to cozy up to Big Pharma and Big Health Care in defiance of ethics rules.
CDC Scientists Expose Agency Corruption – A letter sent by more than a dozen senior CDC scientists charging the agency with nursing an atmosphere of pervasive research fraud. The group, which claimed to represent scientists across the CDC’s diverse branches, calls itself SPIDER (Scientists Preserving Integrity, Diligence and Ethics in Research). The letter reveals that, for all intents and purposes, the CDC functions as a subsidiary of a rapacious pharmaceutical industry in partnership with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration FDA) and numerous outside parties and rogue interests that all benefit from their endorsement of a highly profitable vaccine orthodoxy.
The U.S. Needs an Independent Vaccine Safety Organization – A 2009 report by the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) at the Department of Health and Human Services determined that CDC displayed a systemic lack of [ethics] oversight. Virtually all (97%) of the individuals sitting on CDC advisory committees, including Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), omitted relevant financial disclosure information from their required ethics form, and CDC rarely complied with the requirement to identify and resolve all conflicts of interest…before permitting [those individuals] to participate in committee meetings.
‘Every Child By Two’ Bites the Hand That Feeds Them – Every Child By Two (“ECBT”) puts on a front to the world that they are an independent, compassionate organization of parents dedicated to the important work of getting every child vaccinated. In fact, the organization is really a sock-puppet mouthpiece for two masters: 1) the Centers for Disease Control and, 2) vaccine makers, their two primary sources of funding.
The CDC Is Being Influenced by Corporate and Political Interests – The Hill newspaper covers the concerns of more than a dozen CDC informants about the inner workings of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that have been mounting in recent months amid disclosures of cozy corporate alliances. The group lodged an ethics complaint alleging the federal agency is being influenced by corporate and political interests in ways that shortchange taxpayers.
The Unofficial Vaccine Educators: Are CDC Funded Non-Profits Sufficiently Independent? – British Medical Journal. Some prominent vaccine advocacy organizations are pushing for greater compulsion. But are these groups—which present themselves as reliable sources of information—providing the public with independent information? With industry and CDC funding in hand, front groups such as Immunization Action Coalition (IAC) and Every Child by Two (ECBT) guarantee vaccine makers’ ability “to influence policy without having to stand on the front lines.”
HHS FY 2017 Budget in Brief – FDA – Whereas the FDA was publicly funded prior to 1992, by fiscal year 2017, three-fourths (75%) of the FDA’s annual budget increase came from user fees, with the pharmaceutical industry in essence paying FDA regulators’ salaries.
Drug Companies Are Paying Huge Sums to Fast-Track FDA Approval – According to a 2015 report in Fortune magazine, pharmaceutical companies are more than willing to pay “big bucks” to speed up the approval process, and in the process, they gain extraordinary leverage over regulatory decision-making.
Examining RFK Jr.’s Claim That the CDC “Owns Over 20 Vaccine Patents” – In addition to the CDC’s ownership of dozens of vaccine-related patents, the agency’s involvement with vaccine manufacturers also extends to licensing agreements and collaboration on projects to develop new vaccines.
Patents Assigned to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention – The large number of patents held by the CDC deserves an in-depth review to determine exactly what current financial relationships with vaccine makers now exist and what…current impact those revenue streams are likely having on vaccine safety positions.
Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA): Conflicts of Interest and Vaccine Development—Preserving the integrity of the Process – The manuscript of the Hearing before the Committee on Government Reform in the U.S. House of Representatives, concerning conflicts of interest and vaccine development.
Caught on Camera: W.H.O Scientists Question Safety Of Vaccines – This bombshell video footage, published by Del Bigtree’s The Highwire, captures a series of statements—profoundly unsettling in their matter-of-factness—made by professionals who, in early December, attended the World Health Organization’s (WHO’s) two-day Global Vaccine Safety Summit. However, the crème de la crème of the vaccine establishment attendees admitted that vaccines can be fatal, the design of safety studies makes it difficult to spot problems, safety monitoring is inadequate, and vaccine adjuvants increase risk.
What the WHO (World Health Org.) Doesn’t Want Us to Know – Regarding the DPT vaccine, highly regarded researcher Dr. Peter Aaby announced, “This vaccine is killing children,” at the Symposium About Scientific Freedom in Copenhagen on March 9, 2019.
Once Burned, Twice Shy—Why “Anti-Vaxxers” Are Really “Ex-Vaxxers” – In early 2019, the WHO hyperbolically declared “reluctance or refusal to vaccinate” to be one of ten major “global health threats.” What the WHO failed to mention is the preponderant role of commercial interests, especially those of drug companies, in shaping its goals and strategies.
WHO: Do financial contributions from ‘pharma’ violate WHO Guidelines? – In 2015, K. M. Gopakumar from Third World Network (TWN) investigated financial contributions by pharmaceutical companies to the WHO and found some to be in conflict with WHO’s guidelines for ethical promotion of medicines. As Gopakumar questions in closing, “These financial contributions thus raise doubts about the implementation of the Guidelines by the Secretariat. How can the WHO Secretariat be expected to scrutinise the conduct of the pharmaceutical companies concerned while accepting financial resources from them?”
Open Letter from International Organisations to the WHO on the Issue of Vaccine Safety – Over 120 groups and individuals, including Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and Children’s Health Defense, sent a letter to the WHO in 2018 chastising the organization for its advocacy of less vaccine testing in order to speed up production. The letter included a list of steps that would need to be taken in order to restore confidence in the WHO emphasizing vaccine safety testing and conducting studies on health outcomes in vaccinated and unvaccinated populations.
Who is really helping the WHO? – Pharmaceutical industry influence makes itself felt not just domestically but also globally, and this has led to a corresponding amping-up of rhetoric against “anti-vaxxers” around the world. In early 2019, the World Health Organization (WHO) hyperbolically declared “reluctance or refusal to vaccinate” to be one of ten major “global health threats.” What the WHO failed to mention, however, is the preponderant role of “commercial interests”—and especially pharmaceutical industry interests—in shaping its goals and strategies.
Bill Gates, are vaccines a “miracle” over disease and a “fantastic investment” — or a disaster for child health that may break the bank? – The Gates Foundation—established in 2000 with an initial endowment of $42.9 billion and amplified by an additional $30 billion from Warren Buffet in 2006—has become the world’s leading global health player as well as the largest non-state funder of the World Health Organization (WHO). As a result of the Gates Foundation’s “tremendous agenda-setting power,” the global health community designated 2010–2020 as the Decade of Vaccines; developed a Global Vaccine Action Plan; and created the public-private Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI Alliance), which receives almost one-fourth of its funding from the Gates Foundation.
Conflicts of interest and pandemic flu – In 2010, the BMJ and the Bureau of Investigative Journalism published findings of their investigation into the financial ties between drug companies and the WHO in the context of the 2009 influenza “pandemic”. The article revealed that some of the experts advising WHO had declarable financial ties with drug companies that were producing antivirals and influenza vaccines.
