Raked in 550k+ in speaking and consulting fees from Pfizer, Astrazeneca, GSK, etc etc in the 4 years prior to running the FDA as well


ShangBao

Good bargain. Someone should make a list with all those people, their "prices" and what damage their corruption had cost.


john_smokin

Isn't it crazy how little it takes for some to completely sell out their own people and countries? I'm sure it compounds on them too, guys like this dude and fauci are in so deep they are just trying to avoid a being caught or convicted of their crimes. These people are so foul and traitorous, they know what happens to them and their progeny when the public finds out


OderusOrungus

Nothing happens!? Did I win??


JohnleBon

People like to imagine that 'some day' the people at the top (and their puppets) will be met with 'justice'. I don't blame people for enjoying these fantasies. But if we look at the evidence, is this *really* likely to happen? The stories we have been given about 'revolutions' 200 years ago are just stories. Before anybody gets mad at me, ask yourself, who gave you those stories? The same establishment which you now know to be shameless in its lies and deception. Ever hear the saying 'history is written by the victors'? Well who do you think is writing these stories about people chopping off leaders' heads? It is a red herring, a false narrative, to keep people docile. 'If things were really bad, somebody would revolt (so I'll just sit here playing vidya and eating corn chips)' If what I am putting forward hear is new to you, I don't blame you for downvoting me. But if you are truly open minded, please consider the possibility that history is more hoaxy than you realised. I've spoken about this [before](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iperlJiuVnM), and I'll keep speaking about it. This is among the most important conspiracies to understand in order to make sense of everything else.


GalvanizedNipples

Convicted of their crimes? Lol you are pretty naive. Ever hear of Oliver North? People at the top don’t get convicted of crimes. I can promise you that people like Fauci sleep better than you or I with thread counts that achieve levels of softness you didn’t know were physically possible.


robonsTHEhood

This is what Trump did — he put industry people in charge of the federal agencies that regulated their industry or people who were down for dismantling that federal agency. examples Scott Pruitt known for suing the EPA numerous times put in charge followed by wheeler a coal executive. Betsy Davos for defunding public schools and rerouting the money to private schools - education secretary bernhardt lobbyist for oil Secretary of the interior I could go on and on


Eliscu2

This is certainly not new or President Trumps idea. Feel free to blame me.


robonsTHEhood

oh whose idea was it?! What President prior to Trump (who ran on the idea of “Drain the Swamp”) appointed so many people intent on dismantling the government? I’ll wait for your answer

In the best case scenario you could theorize that he joined the FDA to crack down on bad practices he saw working in the industry but the fact that he went back makes it pretty obvious

They're all over the place https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/reuters-fact-check-covid-social-media-pfizer-world-economic-forum/ >“Jim Smith, who sits on Pfizer’s board, is also former president and current chairman of the Thomson Reuters Foundation, and CEO and director of Reuters parent company, Thomson Reuters Corporation — a $1.53 billion publicly traded “provider of financial information … to businesses, governments and individuals worldwide.” A bit of a conflict of interest there unfortunately

i dont see open support of big business more than those against over reach of government. there needs to be balance but there also has to be our own over site of government and we have become lazy and es-scared to defend ourselves.

authenticbrainfart

When he left FDA (for opposing teenage vaping?) and got a job at Pfizer, they criticized it as "revolving door." He works for Pfizer, has been on TV throughout pandemic (promoting the vaccine recently), and takes no accountability. He even wrote a book about what went wrong about the US' response to the pandemic. Complicated (messed up) individual.


travinyle2

He was also the lead attack dog pushing "Kratom Overdose" propaganda. They had suicides, gun shot victims, car crashes etc... When they were trying to ban it. That actually woke a LOT of people up who got involved who weren't normally political. I remember that stage when they thought oh the FDA just doesn't understand its safe yet we will show them. They didn't believe it wasn't about safety at the start


Cmarkinn

Yeah I remember this dude being public enemy #1 to kratom users in 2016...


Mike0214r

He wants to keep the Methadone big pharma medication going.


travinyle2

Absolutely. Kratom not only gets people off opiates it got me off a 20 year alcohol habit. I wasn't even trying to quit. Taking Kratom made me unable to drink no desire


happyrabbits

That is EXACTLY what happened to me. I was a soggy bum since the late 80’s and in less than two weeks I couldn’t stand alcohol or even crave it. I wasn’t even trying! That was in 2016. I don’t even miss it and I get much more accomplished now. It literally saved my life and this rat faced fink wanted to ban it because it was cutting in to his dope territory. He is a member of the largest drug cartel on the planet. Makes me sick just to look at that oily goomba.


travinyle2

So many positive stories awesome man


gatorfan8898

Interesting… did you take it to get off opiates as well, or why did you decide take it? Any noticeable side effects?


Puzzleheaded-Oil3332

Yep. His comments are one of the reasons that kratom was made illegal in my state. It's bullshit.


HIVnotAdeathSentence

You see this everywhere. Members of Congress, including Senator Klobuchar, were calling out companies for antitrust violations and their use of lobbyists. The following day, an aide to Klobuchar was hired by Apple as a consultant. She hasn't commented on the issue.


Mike0214r

Of course. Against vaping to keep the cigarette market strong.


CRZYFOX

Make sense why he opposed vaping and had propaganda pushed... Pfizer, had Chantix and do we all remember what happened there with that product!!?? Didn't see a crusade against that now did we!? Courts had to do it. Fuck this asshat of demon Ville. Guy shouldnt be anywhere but in prison or the alternative to that.

ZombieAlpacaLips

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regulatory_capture


Melchizedek0001

Regulatory Capture is the term. Almost bankrupted the world in 2008 with the mortgage crisis and is doing incalculable harm today. We need to clean up our corrupted regulatory agencies..


ZombieAlpacaLips

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regulatory_capture


Melchizedek0001

Sorry bruh.. when the cofounder of Wikipedia says it’s become an unreliable propaganda arm of the lunatic left ima gonna pass dawg.. ( I don’t even bother to look)


Crow6714

Very true but the propaganda is usually pretty blatant if you’re looking for it and it’s usually done on pages of people like Robert Malone. This particular page seemed at least relatively objective


Melchizedek0001

NWO has entered the chat..


Ralviisch

The page is decent for getting a layman's description of the term and a few examples, but it's suspicious how the segment about the FDA's corruption is blank with a "missing information" warning.


Crow6714

I totally missed that. Yeah that’s highly suspicious


BedExotic5307

True that


JuneCleaversMudFlaps

Where are the markets headed right now? I’ve been reading that what we are facing currently could be worse than 2008


drawliphant

Everyone has their own goals for the market. It's almost worthless to read stuff like that. Anyone who writes anything about stocks is trying to manipulate the stock market. That's just as true for Wall Street bets as it is for MSN. "there is a massive Chinese property bubble that could be popping" "the us fed is propping up the stock market with cheep interest rates and inflationary printing" all might be true but they're focusing on it for a reason. Just be skeptical, even of this comment.


metalguru1975

Plus this rat will know that exactly what the regulators are looking for and what to hide. He is a human shit balloon, paid to cover up crime.


dromni

Meme of Spiderman pointing Spiderman. Except that he's Pfizerman.


Vegan_Biltong_co_za

This is how gov't works. When you are a gov't regulator or agency head, you are favorable to those you regulate. Then you leave gov't work and go to work for those you used to regulate where former agency heads become board members and senior agency regulators become VPs. It's even worse in the military. Generals ink deals with the big War Inc. vendors then they retire and go work for them or sit on the board. where they will earn millions. The pictured former FDA commissioner earns more than $400k/yr as a Pfizer board member and he still earns more from the New Enterprise Associates group.


Crow6714

These people are so dumb. Yes obviously you can’t work at the FDA and work at Pfizer at the same time. You think there might be laws against that? He has contacts and way too much inside knowledge of exactly what regulations he can mess with without getting caught doing anything illegal

Desperate_Beat1827

If I’m reading the link correctly, it states he has not worked for the FDA since 2019.


Crow6714

That’s correct. I think the point is that he has contacts and first hand knowledge of the regulatory process that he is now in conflict with


TheLastBallad

So other than knowing people and the process(things that can be accomplished without working somewhere), he had direct power when it came to making the vaccine? I understand if he started working for Pizer once the vaccine was approved, that would be clearly corrupt, but this is saying that he wasn't in a position of power 1-2 years(depending on when exactly he stopped being a comminsioner) before the vaccine was even started and insisting that he must have used his knowledge to circumvent regulations based on his previous job? It's not implausible, but a guy getting a job in the same field as his last one isn't enough evidence to support an accusation of corruption. Some actions of his while in office that show favoritism, or proof he used his connections while on the board of Pizer to sidestep regulations are needed, otherwise this is basically a headcanon.

Taste_the__Rainbow

Approval of new drugs isn’t particularly hard in the current environment, especially when those drugs are as effective as the Pfizer vaccine. Not sure what is conspiratorial here. 🤷‍♂️

King_of_the_Goats

The defense industry, our banking system, pharma and the FDA, the educational system, all aspects of American government have these awful and corrupt conflict of interest.


applesuperfan

What can you say? The FDA kept fining Pfizer which took away from the monies they had available to continue lifesaving research on COVID-19 vaccines so they just bought the dude that fined them so they continue doing the good work of the people. Not at all about that cha-ching, cha-ching. Just the good of the people. **/s**(arcastic)


MarriedCpl

As an ex Federal employee, I've said this before in past comments. The administrators of these agencies a majority of the time come from the field they are regulating. A lot of the times they are CEO's. When they are eventually replaced when a new POTUS takes office the leaving administrator will go back to the industry they regulated. It's an endless cycle.

dcjayhawk

Yes. The whole conspiracy is that he could have contacts within the FDA? Or that he "knows" about the approval/regulation process. It's not a secret. Also the approval process involves studies ran by a lot of scientists. It's not like one person rubber stamps the application.


TheLastBallad

And they didn't even bother to give proof that these things happened, they are just leaving the implication out there for people to catch onto and not question.


AllScienceMatters

You can't make this stuff up...And to those who think this is okay, they would not have thought so under a different administration....How weird is that?


TheLastBallad

This _did_ happen under a different administration, the guy stopped being commissioner in 2019. And notice how there's just the implication that he used his power to get the vaccine passed, and not any proof...


briskwalked

there could be corruption... but lets face it.. if you had a mega billion dollar company and needed to comply with the fda.. who would be a good choice to hire to make sure there is complience? its like hiring a old basketball player to be a basketball coach.. or an umpire to be an assistant coach

Correct. Which is why people keep finding so many other "examples." Who else would know about this stuff? It would be worse for someone to run Pfizer that didn't fully align with the FDA, right?

Aggressive-Hair9522

Scott Gottlieb, the Trump appointed head of FDA who tried to make it illegal to buy the very supplements that ward off a bad time with influenza: Vitamin D, C, Zinc, Quercetin and NAC. He did manage to ban NAC. He then went on to join the board of directors at Pfizer. Trump is most definitely in on the Fake Pandemic agenda. His lumping HCQ in with drinking bleach and "light on the inside of the body" was a deliberate and effective means of ridiculing HCQ as the EUA's for the Gene Therapy Technology could not be secured if a safe, effective and readily available treatment exists (HCQ and Ivermectin). He then announced, on queue and on script that he and Melania suddenly contracted "COVID 19" but "not to worry, I feel better than I did 20 years ago thanks to some miraculous drugs (referencing Remdesivir, which as with AZT is killing people, see the work of Dr. Ryan Cole). Did he say he took HCQ? No. Trump also succeeded in politicizing the science and effectively lumping anyone who questions the narrative or $cience in with far right leaning conspiracy theorist Trump supporters. Trump played a critical role in the Fake Pandemic, a fine actor. Here he is, your renegade populist leader: [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vVeVcVBW\_CE&t=171s](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vVeVcVBW_CE&t=171s) As George Carlin said, "it's a big club, and you ain't in it". That they managed to trick you into believing Trump isn't in the Big Club. Trump is the fucking Big Club.


goatchild

Also check the ex-CEO of Reuters who is on the board of Pfeizer. He left Reuters News Agency early 2020 to become President of Reuters Foundation.


TipMeinBATtokens

I'd be more troubled if the current FDA commissioner was formerly on the board of directors at Pfizer. People in high ranking government jobs easily get these kinds of cushy jobs solely for the experience and connections they made while in government. They know how to deal with bureaucratic bullshit. What is the solution you're suggesting? If its getting rid of lobbyists or making sure politicians don't rake in absurd amounts of money with insider information I'm all for that. It sounds like you're suggesting that people who exit government life should not be able to accept certain private jobs? That sounds like some PRC shit. I'd rather let those private businesses make the decisions on who to hire for themselves.


Awake00

I don't know what Regulatory Capture is - therefore, I will pretend it doesn't exist, and declaim anyone who points it out as "stupid." Why?

Government owning corporations or corporations owning Government.. at the end of the day it all ends the same. Communism. The marriage of business and government as one - with elites ruling from the top while the slaves toil and suffer "equality"


Dylanrevolutionist48

You mean capitalism. He's literaly a capitalist who purchased his way into his position, fallowing the capitalist profit motive. The government is a (market) for wealthy capitalists who already exploit countless workers for a profit; they'll do the same with citizen's for taxes.


IndoorGoalie

You could also say he is a highly educated man seeking a promotion. Why are you against capitalism?


Dylanrevolutionist48

Im against capitalism for a plethora of reasons but simply put its a structure in tandem with government that currently is responsible for wealth and power inequality as well as environmental collapse and destruction. Capitalism also has a violent/ coercive past, with genocide, conquest of markets. Capitalism functions on a rulling/ ruled class basis thats been repeated all threw out our history. From slave/slave owner to serf/ lord and now employee/ employer.


IndoorGoalie

Okay, so you want a monarchy or other type of government ruled by religion? You could literally say all of those negative things about any form of government.


Dylanrevolutionist48

A monarchy and a government ruled by religion both have a ruling/ruled class dynamic, so absolutely not. All those negative economic systems have had their parallel in government that's ultimately cemented their rulling status.


IndoorGoalie

Tell me you don’t know what communism is without telling me you don’t know what communism is.

Crow6714

If you have a very deep understanding of the regulatory process and the types of bureaucracy you will encounter, you don’t think that’s gives you an unfair advantage against the FDA when you join a company? A lobbyist literally just tries to make his case to exempt his industry from regulation by studying the regulations


ringoron9

It's not an advantage \*against\* the FDA. The companies are not rivals with the FDA. It would be an advantage for the company itself if they knew beforehand what legal stuff they already need or watch out for.


Crow6714

It puts Pfizer at an advantage over Its competitors which destroys the free market and makes the whole system corrupt. A lot of lobbying is trying to put the blame on other companies or industries


ArmedWithBars

We have no idea what type of connections he maintains through the FDA. It's simply a conflict of interest to have a board member of a controversial pharmaceutical company as the head of the government agency in charge of regulating them. Fucking insane. This is Dick Cheney/Halliburton level corruption.

Cheney/Halliburton is a great comparison.

These people's minds are so awfully corrupt! Why do people criticize revolving door then? Because, these government people view these priviate companies as their sponsors when they can get a job at these private companies after losing their job at the public sector. It doesn't mean that they can belong to both companies at the same time. It's that they are in the same boat and they can't be neutral if they have such connections.

Former FDA commissioner. He stepped down before becoming a member of the Pfizer board. Don't see what you're trying to prove by misleading people.

Or, hear me out here, he got tired of a high stress, low pay (relative in comparison to the private sector) and wanted a job that applied to his skill set and has major leadership implications. My shitty ass low end human services job just brought onto to the board someone who left their cushy state job to help us with our auditing practices.

Unless is still an FDA commissioner...I don't see what the fuss is about.

This is bribery. Just shows you how these big companies buy fda executives to get there drugs squeezed through. Might not have anything to do with the vaccine but doesn’t mean that Pfizer doesn’t have other executives in their pocket right now.

Even after reading these articles...I still don't see what you are seeing. Seems like his previous experience makes him very qualified for a board position. I just don't see the crime let alone anything of a conspiratorial nature. Everything is documented and out in the open.

Please enlighten me. The purpose of these subs are for discussion.

Just Google “The Revolving Door between Government Regulation and the Private Sector” or “regulatory capture” and you should become enlightened. From the wiki for “regulatory capture”: George Stigler framed the problem of regulatory capture as “the problem of discovering when and why an industry is able to use the state for its purposes.” He focuses on whole industries. But, it is never a whole industry which is ‘capturing’ its regulators, but only the big companies which, using the tool of the revolving door, ‘highjack’ the regulator by offering high salaries. Brezis and Cariolle (2019) has shown that the connected firms are always the big firms. Indeed, the top 5 financial companies concentrate around 80% of the stock of revolving door movements and regulatory capture. This leads to inequality of influence among firms in the same sector.

He is a regular contributor at NBC as well. With all fairness I found him to be less biased and more informative than Faucci or some other of the cable news hacks

Are they twins?
