‘Science’ Fact-Checks Biden Agenda: FDA Nixes Pfizer COVID-19 Booster Vax

Posted on | September 17, 2021 | No Comments

There is a huge backstory to what the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) did Friday, but first the basic news:

A Food and Drug Administration (FDA) panel voted Friday afternoon to reject a plan to provide Pfizer-BioNTech coronavirus booster vaccines for most Americans, due to a lack of data showing that the additional doses are safe and effective. However, the agency’s advisory committee said it may still approve the shots for older individuals.
The panel opposed the proposal by a vote of 16-12.
“I don’t think a booster dose is going to significantly contribute to controlling the pandemic,” Dr. Cody Meissner, Tufts University professor, said as panel members debate the requirement for a booster shot. “And I think it’s important that the main message we transmit is that we’ve got to get everyone two doses.”
“At this moment it is clear that the unvaccinated are driving transmission in the United States,” added Dr. Amanda Cohn of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Booster shots by Pfizer or Moderna have already been greenlighted for Americans who are immunocompromised.
The FDA panel’s overwhelming rejection came despite full-throated arguments about the need for boosters from both Pfizer and health officials from Israel, which began offering boosters to its citizens in July.

Pfizer is a multibillion-dollar enterprise and, like other companies marketing COVID-19 vaccines, they stand to profit handsomely from Biden’s plan to make vaccination mandatory. Guess what? Pfizer spends a lot of money on political contributions, ranking in the Top 200 of donors in the 2020 cycle, with more than $4 million in contributions, not to mention spending another $11 million on lobbying activity. Joe Biden repeatedly claimed that his COVID-19 policy would be based on science, but big money and political “optics” are clearly a factor. Last month, while Afghanistan was collapsing in chaos, Biden started talking up the idea of COVID-19 booster vaccinations, and two members of the FDA panel resigned in protest against the political pressure:

Joe Biden has said he would “follow the science” on coronavirus policy, but two Food and Drug Administration (FDA) officials have just resigned in protest against what they claim is political pressure to push coronavirus booster shots.
According to Politico, the two top FDA vaccine regulators — Marion Gruber and Philip Krause — resigned from the agency over what they see as “uncomfortable similarities between the Biden team’s top-down booster plan and former President Donald Trump’s attempts to goad FDA into accelerating its initial authorization process for Covid-19 vaccines and push through unproven virus treatments.” . . .
In fact, as many as 11 current and former FDA officials told Politico that they have grown frustrated with the administration’s “disjointed process” regarding the booster shots. . . .
In August, the HHS released a joint statement with medical health officials announcing the release of coronavirus booster shots by September 20, but senior health officials told Politico that “political appointees within the White House largely steered” the statement instead of the FDA and other medical professionals.
“The tension within the administration plus open skepticism from outside experts has fueled finger-pointing and divisions among health agencies,” according to Politico. “Career scientists, in particular, have been confused and surprised by the process, multiple people involved in the talks said.”
FDA officials were also confused over the fact that Biden abruptly shifted from suggesting that boosters be recommended 8 months after the first shots to 5 months after the first shots. His suggestion allegedly came “after a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett.”

About two-thirds of American adults (myself included) are fully vaccinated, and most of the unvaccinated people are just against it, period. So that means the end of Big Pharma’s government-funded vaccine profit bonanza is approaching quite soon. That’s the real reason (not “the science”) why the Biden administration is now trying to make vaccination mandatory, and also why they were trying to get booster shots approved. Big money is involved, see? And there’s also the narrative factor — Biden wants to be able to take credit as the Hero Who Defeated the Killer Virus, and he’s also desperate to distract from his debacle in Afghanistan and the mess he’s made on the U.S.-Mexico border.

That’s why Biden was ready to spend the next few weeks urging people who were already fully vaccinated to get booster shots, which would give him further opportunities to demonize Republicans (especially including Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis) as being enemies of “science.” And it would’ve worked, too, if it weren’t for those damned FDA people!

Live by “the science,” die by “the science.”

Journalism 2021: CNN Fact-Checks Rapper’s Claim About Testicles

Posted on | September 16, 2021 | No Comments

Wow, I’m so old, I remember when CNN was actually a news organization, rather than a P.R. firm for the Democratic Party. In fact, I’m so old, I was old enough to be partying in discos when the first rap hit (“Rapper’s Delight” by Sugar Hill Gang) made it into the Top 40. Jimmy Carter was president, and the Ayatollah was holding Americans hostage in Tehran, but we were too busy partying to care. Is anyone else old enough to remember when most college kids were completely apathetic about politics? But enough about the Good Old Days . . .

Nicki Minaj is a 38-year-old hiphop star who was born in Trinidad and moved to Queens, N.Y., with her family as a child. When she was in her 20s, she was “discovered” by rapper Lil Wayne, and scored her breakthrough hit, “Pink Friday” in 2010. Her net worth is now estimated at $80 million, because America is a white supremacist country that oppresses women and people of color. Well, according to Democrats.

Minaj also has 22 million followers on Twitter, so when she told her tale about COVID-19 vaccine causing her cousin’s friend in Trinidad to experience testicular swelling and become impotent, this set off a panic among Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) who are trying to defend Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate. As Jim Geraghty writes, the establishment went to “DEFCON One”:

Do I believe that hip-hop star Nicki Minaj’s cousin’s friend in Trinidad received a COVID-19 vaccine and then developed swollen testicles and became impotent? Let’s just say I am going to wait for the full review in The Lancet medical journal before drawing any firm conclusions. I also might want a second opinions from the New England Journal of Medicine, JAMA, Nature, Harvard Medical School, the Mayo Clinic, Sloan-Kettering, and Dr. Ruth Westheimer.
But there is something spectacularly hilarious about this absurd turn in the national debate about COVID-19 vaccinations, where no less a figure than Dr. Anthony Fauci felt the need to go on national television and say, no, there is no evidence that the vaccine will make your testes blow up like a pair of balloons . . .
There is also something hysterical and ludicrous about the fact that media fact-checkers at places such as USA Today and PolitiFact felt the need to “fact check” a tweet from a hip-hop star . . .
The White House apparently felt the need to reach out to Minaj and offered to connect her with a doctor with expertise. MSNBC’s Joy Reid did a whole segment denouncing Minaj, and there have been critical pieces about Minaj at CNNVoxCNBC, the BBC, and elsewhere.

(Hat-tip: Ed Driscoll at Instapundit.) Why this absurd journalistic panic over a rapper’s tweet about COVID-19 vaccine?

  1. She’s got what they call “clout” as a social-media influencer, particularly among young people. CNN’s audience is a tiny fraction of Nicki Minaj’s Twitter following, and so CNN’s “reporters” — who can’t be bothered to cover the disaster at the U.S.-Mexico border or the emerging hostage crisis in Afghanistan — found time to contact the health minister of Trinidad to deny anyone there experienced testicular inflammation as a result of the vaccine.
  2. The Biden administration has been lying through its teeth, blaming Republicans for the recent “surge” of COVID-19 infections. It’s not Trump voters who are responsible for spreading anti-vaccine “misinformation,” and Nicki Minaj’s tweet undermines the media narrative.

The fact is that vaccination “resistance” is a greater problem among blacks and Hispanics than among whites, but this is an inconvenient truth for the Biden administration (and its media apparatchiki), who are scapegoating Republicans as being “anti-science” on vaccines.

Why do Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) think they can get away with straight-up lying about the COVID-19 pandemic? Because they have been getting away with it right from the start. And they don’t plan to stop lying anytime soon. It’s their job description now, and if that means fact-checking testicle inflammation in Trinidad? So be it.

Democrats: The ‘Free Money’ Party

Posted on | September 14, 2021 | No Comments

You probably recognize the woman on the right in that photo, but who is the woman on the left? That’s Damara Holness, 28, former president of the Broward County (Florida) Democratic Black Caucus. Holness’s father is Broward County commissioner Dale Holness, who is one of several Democrats running for the congressional seat vacated by the death in April of Rep. Alcee Hastings. Dale Holness’s campaign slogan is “Prosperity for All,” and look what his daughter’s doing:

Federal prosecutors have charged 28-year-old Fort Lauderdale, Florida resident Damara Holness with lying on a coronavirus relief loan application and fraudulently obtaining hundreds of thousands of dollars intended to help small businesses financially survive the Covid-19 pandemic.
According to the information filed [in August] in federal district court in Fort Lauderdale, in June 2020, Holness applied for a $300,000 forgivable, federally-guaranteed Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan on behalf of Holness Consulting, Inc., a Florida company that she owned. It is alleged that to justify the requested loan amount, Holness claimed in the on-line loan application, and through supporting fraudulent payroll tax forms, that her company employed 18 people and spent an average of $120,000 each month on payroll. In fact, Holness Consulting had zero employees and no payroll expenses. A bank in Georgia approved Holness Consulting’s PPP loan application based on the lies and wired $300,000 to the company’s bank account in Florida, says the information.
Once the money hit the bank account in July 2020, Holness spent the next few months creating a paper trail to make it appear as if Holness Consulting had employees and was spending the PPP money on legitimate, approved expenses, it is alleged. According to the information, Holness issued checks from the company bank account made out to others who agreed, for a fee, to help with the fraud. At Holness’ direction, the people receiving the checks would endorse and return them to Holness. Then, Holness would cash the checks at the company’s bank, give a few hundred dollars to the check endorsers, and keep the rest of the cash for herself – about $1,000 per check, says the information.

Of course, Damara Holness is to be presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law, but her own father threw her under the bus, claiming he had been “estranged” from his daughter for years — despite the fact that she listed his real estate office as her business address.

The PPP program was targeted for billions of dollars in fraud. One estimate is that 15% of the loans, about $76 billion, were fraudulent. Hundreds of people have already been charged, but as Jenny Sugar, assistant U.S. attorney for the Western District of North Carolina, recently said, “I think that we are going to be investigating these cases for years to come. “But we’re likely just scratching the surface. I think there’s going to be a lot more fraud uncovered as before.”
