U.S. Government Spends Another $1.6 BILLION on COVID Vaccine with Company that “Never Brought a Product to Market” – Health Impact News

President Trump’s Operation Warp Speed is living up to its hype as the largest transfer of wealth in the history of the United States continues at “warp speed,” with BILLIONS of dollars of government funding flowing into the bank accounts of Big Pharma.

This time it is $1.6 BILLION to a new pharmaceutical company that has not even brought a product to market yet, Maryland-based Novavax (sounds like a name some geek in Big Tech Silicon Valley thought up), which joins a long list of drug companies receiving unbelievable amounts of Government cash to develop a COVID vaccine, while many States are rolling out new lock down orders that are killing the few small businesses that managed to survive the first round of lock downs and were just starting to try and open up their businesses again.

Eric Sagonowsky from FiercePharma reports:

Novavax and its COVID-19 shot are racing against well-funded global pharmaceutical players, but a new deal with the U.S. government will push the biotech’s fundraising haul past $2 billion.

The Maryland biotech on Tuesday unveiled a $1.6 billion deal with Operation Warp Speed—the project’s largest funding commitment so far—to support late-stage vaccine testing and manufacturing. For Novavax, the agreement follows others with the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations and the U.S. government worth more than $400 million.

Novavax’s candidate, which combines an antigen generated from the virus’ spike protein and the company’s proprietary Matrix-M adjuvant, is already in phase 1/2 testing, and the biotech expects to report early data this month. If the data are promising, the company will move to the phase 2 portion of the study, where investigators will look at immunity, safety and disease reduction. The phase 3 efficacy study would enroll up to 30,000 participants and begin in the fall.

The company has never brought a product to market, but it’s also advancing a late-stage flu vaccine candidate with plans to file for FDA approval soon.

Meanwhile, Novavax also plans to use Warp Speed funds to ramp up COVID-19 vaccine manufacturing. The company has pledged to produce 100 million vaccine doses this year, and the partners could sign an add-on deal for more doses.

Conveniently located close to Washington D.C. in nearby Maryland, one has to wonder who else in D.C. is benefiting from this newly formed instant billion-dollar company that has not even proven that it can produce a product that makes it to market yet?

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., of Children’s Health Defense, has just reported that drug maker Moderna, also a recipient of hundreds of millions of government funding to produce a COVID vaccine in conjunction with Dr. Anthony Fauci and the National Institute of Health (NIH), will pay out up to half of their future royalties from the sale of a new COVID vaccine to scientists who are also on the government payroll for the NIH.

New documents obtained by Axios and Public Citizen suggest that the National Institute of Health (NIH) owns half the key patent for Moderna’s controversial COVID vaccine and could collect half the royalties. In addition, four NIH scientists have filed their own provisional patent application as co-inventors. Little known NIH regulations let agency scientists collect up to $150,000.00 annually in royalties from vaccines upon which they worked. These rules are recipes for regulatory corruption.

NIH’s stake in the jab may explain why Anthony Fauci moved Moderna’s vaccine to the front of the line and to let Moderna skip animal trials despite the experimental technology and the inherent dangers of Coronavirus vaccines. Every prior coronavirus vaccine has proven problematic and can be lethal to animals due to COVID’s unique penchant for “pathogenic priming.” Death occurs only after a vaccinated animal encounters the wild virus.

Public health advocates and scientists criticized Fauci’s decision to skip animal trials as reckless. It may also explain why Anthony Fauci arranged a $483 million grant to Moderna from a sister NIH agency, BARDA, despite the fact that Moderna has never brought a product to market or gotten approval.

Fauci’s infusion made Moderna CEO Steve Bancel a billionaire and further enriched Fauci’s mentor and co-investor Bill Gates. It may also explain why Fauci publicly announced he was “encouraged” by Moderna’s catastrophic Phase 1 clinical trials despite the fact that 20% of the high dose and 6% of the low dose groups of super healthy volunteers had Grade 3 “severe or medically significant” reactions following vaccination.

Those results would have spelled DOA for any other medical product. After getting the abysmal news, Bancel and four other Moderna executives immediately dumped more than $89 million in stock and Fauci was forced to make his optimistic public assessment to save Moderna’s plummeting shares from death spiral.

Fauci painted lipstick on that lame donkey and now he’s trying to convince everyone it’s a thoroughbred. Moderna and NIH began manufacturing the first of 1 billion doses of the deadly vaccine this month. Fauci knows from experience that no matter how dangerous a vaccine, the easy part is convincing people to take it. Pharma, after all, controls the media.

Come on America! Do you honestly still believe this is all about protecting the public from a deadly new virus??

How long are you going to continue to comply by staying in your homes and continuing to wear government-commanded face masks, especially now that it has been reported that Governor Newsom of California funneled a billion dollars to China to produce face masks that now have to be distributed in the U.S.?

If you still believe this is all about health and safety, then you will probably also be first in line to get the new COVID vaccines that Bill Gates and President Trump are investing billions in to develop.

Yes, the New World Order’s plan to reduce the world’s population is proceeding full speed ahead, at “warp speed.”

State Governor Mandates Everyone Wear Snorkels In Case They Fall In A Pool

U.S.—As governors clamor to follow the ways of SCIENCE and save lives in their state, one state governor has read some very scary statistics from SCIENCE and decided to go the extra mile to protect the safety of his citizens. “Starting today,” he said, “All citizens of my state will be required to wear a snorkel at all times, both indoors and out. This will prevent thousands of tragic deaths resulting from people falling in their backyard pools. SCIENCE says we must do this.”

Every person in the state will be required to wear a snorkel, preferably paired with goggles, 24 hours a day. When pressed as to why they were necessary indoors, the governor replied, “Hello! Sinks? Bathtubs? Showers? There are water hazards everywhere inside the house! We can’t be too careful! SCIENCE!”

According to the order, anyone caught without a snorkel will be required to pay a $15,000 fine or face 8 years of jail time. Second offenders will be shot on sight. “We must do this to save lives and obey SCIENCE!! We are in this together,” the state governor exclaimed before tripping on a microphone cord and falling headfirst into the press pool.

Questions For Dr. Fauci

Pamela A. Popper, President

Wellness Forum Health

June 9, 2020

Dr. Anthony Fauci has been the primary advisor to President Trump during the coronavirus pandemic. Many Americans still believe that Fauci is a great virologist who has worked hard to protect Americans from a deadly threat. But even some members of the mainstream media are starting to ask questions about both Fauci and the agency he heads.

Gain-of-function research involves manipulating viruses in a laboratory setting in order to investigate their potential to infect humans. This type of research is very controversial due to the risk of accidental release of a mutated virus that could cause a pandemic. While hundreds of researchers have spoken out against it, Dr. Fauci has historically defended this type of research. He wrote this in an editorial in the Washington Post on December 30 2011: “[D]etermining the molecular Achilles’ heel of these viruses can allow scientists to identify novel antiviral drug targets that could be used to prevent infection in those at risk or to better treat those who become infected. Decades of experience tells us that disseminating information gained through biomedical research to legitimate scientists and health officials provides a critical foundation for generating appropriate countermeasures and, ultimately, protecting the public health.”[1]

In spite of Fauci’s enthusiasm for it, the National Institutes of Health issued a moratorium on funding for gain-of-function research in 2014. Researchers involved in this type of work were urged to discontinue their activities until risks and benefits could be more clearly defined.[2] A recent Newsweek articlereports that reviews were conducted, but behind closed doors and away from public scrutiny. The moratorium was lifted in December 2017.

But, as reported in last week’s newsletter, a new gain-of-function research project involving bat coronaviruses began in 2015, two years before the moratorium ended. Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and the Chinese government authorized funding for both American researchers and the Wuhan Institute of Virology for the purpose of transforming a bat coronavirus into one that could infect and be transmitted by humans. They were successful, and the researchers reported their work in a prestigious European journal.[3] In the article, the researchers expressed some concern about whether or not their research was in violation of U.S. rules.

According to the Newsweek article, in 2019, the NIAID renewed the grant and committed an additional $3.7 million dollars for 5 more years of research, bringing the total invested in this research to $7.4 million. EcoHealth Alliance was the recipient of the grant. This organization describes itself as a “…global environmental health non-profit organization dedicated to protecting wildlife and public health from the emergence of disease.” EcoHealth has some interesting partners that include:[4]

  • Drug companies including Johnson and Johnson, which has received hundreds of millions of dollars from the U.S. government for the development of a COVID-19 vaccine[5]
  • Johns Hopkins, which staged Event 201 in October 2019, a simulation of a coronavirus pandemic that would kill 65 million people [6]
  • The Centers for Disease Control
  • The National Institutes of Health
  • The New York City Department of Health

The proposal for the more recent funding stated that “We will use S protein sequence data, infectious clone technology, in vitro and in vivo infection experiments and analysis of receptor binding to test the hypothesis that % divergence thresholds in S protein sequences predict spillover potential (emphasis mine).”[7] “Spillover potential” means the ability of a virus to jump from animals to humans, and attach to receptors in human cells. The virus to be used in this research was a bat coronavirus.

The mainstream media has largely ignored any information that is critical of Fauci or the current response of government and health officials to COVID-19. But Newsweek chose to cover this story last week, perhaps an encouraging sign.[8] Newsweek reports that Fauci did not respond to requests for comment, but that the NIH issued this statement: “Most emerging human viruses come from wildlife, and these represent a significant threat to public health and biosecurity in the US and globally, as demonstrated by the SARS epidemic of 2002-03, and the current COVID-19 pandemic…. scientific research indicates that there is no evidence that suggests the virus was created in a laboratory.”[9]

The Trump administration ended funding for this research on April 24.[10]

It is not known at this time if Fauci had any direct involvement in arranging or overseeing these research projects. We do know that he was head of the NIAID during the entire time period in which the research was conducted. Agency heads are – or should be – held responsible for the actions of their employees and organizations. And generally ignorance is not acceptable as a means for avoiding responsibility in many court proceedings. Perhaps other members of the mainstream media will become curious and decide to look into these matters further.

7 Things That Happen When You Stop Eating Meat | Forks Over Knives

People go plant-based for lots of reasons. These include losing weight, feeling more energetic, reducing the risk of heart disease, decreasing the number of pills they take … there are dozens of great reasons! For even more inspiration, check out these other benefits you can expect when you go plant-based.

1. YOU’LL REDUCE INFLAMMATION IN YOUR BODY.

If you are eating meat, cheese, and highly processed foods, chances are you have elevated levels of inflammation in your body. While short-term inflammation (such as after an injury) is normal and necessary, inflammation that lasts for months or years is not. Chronic inflammation has been linked to the development of atherosclerosis, heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, and autoimmune diseases, among other conditions.

In contrast, plant-based diets are naturally anti-inflammatory, because they are high in fiber, antioxidants, and other phytonutrients, and much lower in inflammatory triggers like saturated fat and endotoxins (toxins released from bacteria commonly found in animal foods). Studies have shown that people who adopt plant-based diets can dramatically lower their level of C-reactive protein (CRP), an indicator of inflammation in the body.

10 Easy Plant-Based Recipes to Make Using Pantry Foods and Minimal Ingredients – Food Revolution Network

In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, many people have taken to shopping less often. And some favorite food items might be out of stock or in short supply. But there are many nutritious, delicious, and easy plant-based options available using simple pantry basics and minimal ingredients.

When authorities began issuing stay-at-home orders to combat the spread of COVID-19, people began loading up on foods with a long shelf life (that is, pantry foods). But no one knew how long the new normal would last. And some people reasoned that they needed to store enough food to see them through a two to four-week quarantine in case they contracted the virus and weren’t able to leave their home at all. Eventually you’d use them all up, right? And maybe you could come up with some quick and easy plant based recipes in the process.

But that uncertainty also led to panic buying, creating a frightening sight of empty store shelves, which led to even more panic buying in response. For the first time in some of our lifetimes, there has been a real fear of food shortages. The meat industry has been hit especially hard by COVID-19, causing products to remain out of stock or arrive sporadically and in limited quantities. And some fruits and vegetables are rotting in fields and warehouses as the supply chain breaks down.

As a result of the changing food landscape, you may find yourself having to get creative while cooking, use substitutions, or look for plant-based recipes that use minimal ingredients. Or you might be stocked up on canned goods and non-perishables but wonder how you can use them to make healthy and enjoyable meals. (Here’s an article about healthy pantry foods that you should have on hand, not just during pandemic times, but as the foundation of your diet.) Either way, we have your back. Read on to find out how to use pantry foods to come up with easy plant based recipes (with a sampling of a few of our favorites).

Where Do Dietitians And Nutritionists Get Their information On Nutrition And Disease Reversal And Are They Getting Accurate Information? Dr. Pam Popper

Author of Food Over Medicine: The Conversation That Could Save Your Life

Overmedicated, overfed, and malnourished, most Americans fail to realize the answer to lower disease rates doesn’t lie in more pills but in the foods we eat.With so much misleading nutritional information regarded as common knowledge, from “everything in moderation” to “avoid carbs,” the average American is ill-equipped to recognize the deadly force of abundant, cheap, unhealthy food options that not only offer no nutritional benefits but actually bring on a disease.

In this lecture, Pamela A. Popper, Ph.D. ND, speaks about the dire state of American health—the result of poor nutrition choices stemming from food politics and medical misinformation. But, more important, she shares the key to getting and staying healthy for life.

Backed by numerous scientific studies, Pamela A. Popper, Ph.D., ND details how dietary choices either build health or destroy it.
