The Sordid History of FDA Approval

Aug 25, 2021

FDA approval does not mean a drug is safe. According to The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), one-third of the drugs approved by the FDA between 2001 and 2010 were involved in some kind of safety event. Of the 222 novel therapeutics approved, 123 had safety issues and 71 required FDA action.

With many FDA-approved drugs that caused serious injuries or deaths, the FDA maintained its silence. Private lawsuits resulted in the largest settlement in history of 26 billion dollars for opioids.

The FDA approval for Pfizer's two-shot dosage is the fastest in history. In less than four months, the licensing application will be fully approved.

This stamp of government "approval" doesn't erase the 600,000 adverse reactions to these jabs or the more than 13,000 deaths. Nor does this approval change the fact that people have the right to request medical and religious exemptions. But what does change is the misperception that FDA approval means the Pfizer shots are safe and effective. They're not.

Pfizer created one of the FDA-approved-then-unapproved drugs. The drug, Rezulin, caused fewer than 20 deaths per year on average and led to 35,000 claims against this company before it was pulled off the market.

In 2004, Pfizer paid $430 million to federal and state governments and pled guilty to criminal charges of illegally and improperly marketing this drug.

Just a few years later, Pfizer pled guilty to a felony violation of the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act for additional illegal behavior. Pfizer paid 2.3 billion in the largest health care fraud pharmaceutical settlement in history.

But Pfizer's fraud was dwarfed by the opioid settlement, which included Johnson & Johnson.

J&J agreed this year to pay 5 billion in a 26 billion-dollar settlement for its hand in creating the opioid crisis in America. In the mid-1990s, the FDA gave two opioid drugs approval that fueled this national crisis!

Now, with the COVID injections, health care workers are speaking up. Kirsten Clougherty, an RN in California, had a full physical a month before her jab. She had a clean bill of health. But then she got this jab ...

She had full-body tingling, numbness and lymph nodes on her vaccinated arm that were swollen to the size of golf balls. She had weeks of debilitating headaches. Her heart skyrocketed to 170-180 BPM.

She went from working her demanding job as a nurse, caring for her three active boys and walking 3 miles every night with her husband to a level of fatigue she could not explain. She could barely get off the couch. Brain fog set in. She could not even speak in full sentences! But she was better off than the thousands who have died after this jab!

Now, millions of Americans are being forced to take this same injection that changed Kirsten's life. They are flooding our offices with urgent stories and tight deadlines. They are begging us for help to preserve their personal dignity, freedom and health.

  • "They are requesting the vaccine for this semester with no exceptions accepted. My religion and beliefs are not taken under consideration."
  • "I was discriminated based on my religious belief to not accept the vaccine. I am losing my job as an emergency physician."
  • "Religious exemptions will not be considered for the covid vaccine mandate. Is this legal?"
  • "There was no place for her to appeal as they only had one selection—to accept their decision and get the vax. The process was so diabolical we feel they never had any intention of approving a waiver."
  • "No one has been able to get them to back off or even consider trying to be fair (or legal) in this process. PLEASE help us."
  • ... and thousands more requests for help.

When you support our ministry, you bring hope to those facing their toughest moments. We need your support to help us serve as many of these requests as possible.

Dr. Naomi Wolf, CEO of a tech company, warned that vaccine passports are the end of freedom. She said vaccine passports are "the most terrifying thing I've ever seen."

She added, "They are already creating a two-tier society. ... Those people who don't want to be vaccinated will be marginalized, treated like second-class citizens, and we know from history where that goes. ... This is full-on fascism ... and I'm witnessing it live."

Mandatory shots and vaccine passports are the end of freedom. The shots may be the end of life for some!

Yesterday I was on a call with representatives of a large employer. I was told some employees are so distraught they have contemplated suicide. The employer is a large commercial airline. This is serious! Help us fight!
