Would $350 million from Big Pharma be enough to buy Fauci and NIH approval — Who knows, it’s a secret

The Swamp is not even hiding the corruption, just the exact dollar figure

Big-Pharma logoAnthony Fauci is effectively King of the National Institute of Health. He gets paid $450,000 a year — the highest paid public servant in the United States. In just one year alone the NIH dished out $30 billion to more than 50,000 recipients. And there are royalty payments that flow back the other way, which amounted to $350 million dollars over the decade from 2010-2020. And here’s the weird thing, most of those royalty payments are secret.

Thirty billion dollars is an awfully big carrot, and even though $350 million seems small in comparison, it’s awfully big compared to the salaries of the few key decision-makers. It’s an obvious conflict of interest, and lives are at risk, but it’s not even being disclosed.

If Big Pharma were paying off people to get their drugs approved, it would look a lot like this. And if Big Pharma (or the asset managers that own big pharma) were also paying off the media to silence reporting of NIH corruption would the media ignore this story — exactly like it does?

In a normal world this type of corruption would be front page news. There is no reason royalty payments should be secret.

Tim Brown, The WashingtonStandard

Bombshell: NIH Hid Fauci & Other’s $350 Million In “Royalty” Payments From Big Pharma

The conflict of interest alone should have been enough to remove Dr. Anthony Fauci and others from positions inside the National Institutes for Health, the Food and Drug Administration and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Yet, here we are as a bombshell has been dropped unmasking that not only did Fauci and other bigwigs receive $350 million “royalty” payments from Big Pharma, but the NIH tried to hide those numbers.

OpenTheBooks filed some, wow, 47,000 FOIA requests last year. They have a federal lawsuit running against the NIH and are seeking those royalty payment details.

NIH Scientists Pocketed $350 Million in Royalties — Agency Won’t Say How Much Went to Fauci

Dr. Anthony Fauci received 23 royalty payments, but the NIH has yet to disclose the sum total of those payments.

Recently, our organization at OpenTheBooks.com forced NIH to disclose more than 22,100 royalty payments totaling nearly $134 million paid to the agency and nearly 1,700 NIH scientists. These payments occurred during the most recently available period (September 2009 – September 2014).

The production is the result of our federal lawsuit against NIH. The agency admits to holding 3,000 pages of line-by-line royalties since 2009. So far, they’ve produced only 1,200 pages. The next 1,800 pages of production will cover the period 2015 – 2020.

Well-known scientists receiving payments during the period included:

      • Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and the highest-paid federal bureaucrat, received 23 royalty payments. (Fauci’s 2021 taxpayer-funded salary: $456,028)
      • Francis Collins, NIH director from 2009 to 2021, received 14 payments. (Collins’ 2021 taxpayer-funded salary: $203,500)
      • Clifford Lane, Fauci’s deputy at NIAID, received 8 payments. (Lane’s 2021 taxpayer-funded salary: $325,287)

On top of royalties there are prizes too — as if a big salary was not enough:

To this day, Fauci continues to receive NIH-approved perks without a lot of accountability. For example, in February 2021, Fauci received a $1 million prize from the Dan David Foundation in Israel for “speaking truth to power” during the Trump administration.

Where is the NIH page that lists all the decisions of the NIH that limit Big Pharma profits? We want to know all the times (or even one time) the NIH supported a cheap generic drug or natural unpatentable molecule over one that sends royalties back to the NIH?

h/t Robert Rosica, John Connor II, and David Archibald (who is running in the seat of Curtin in WA in the Federal Election).

      THE SUPERSALESMAN

      Slicker’n deer guts on a doorstep!
      Smooth as a filly’s nose!
      Here in this jug’s a miracle drug
      So new that nobody knows!

      Feed it inject it or plant it
      Stick it under an ear.
      Pick any breed, results guaranteed,
      The data’s perfectly clear.

      It’s good for foot rot in gophers,
      Chafing on buffalo thighs,
      Horses with corns, Angus with horns
      And girls with fire in their eyes!

      Goats with a bad disposition,
      Lovers losing their spark,
      Turpentined cats, blindfolded bats
      And dogs that forgot how to bark!

      Friends. Are you troubled with aphids?
      Kids all down with the flu?
      Cattle won’t gain? Needing more rain?
      I’ll tellya what this’ll do;

      Kill all the weeds in your garden,
      Patch up your innertube,
      Leaven your bread, stiffen your thread
      And work out your Rubik’s cube!

      Give you more miles per gallon,
      Relieve your gastric distress,
      If that ain’t enough, this wonderful stuff
      Eats barbecue stains off your dress!

      I see you don’t quite believe me!
      The best I saved for last
      Pay me the cash then quick as a flash!
      See? Oh, I went too fast

      Okay, let’s do it again.
      Watch and you’ll understand.
      Safe and improved, it gently removes
      A five dollar bill from your hand!

Certainly not to Australian public servants, it would have to be a trickle UP actually a WATERFALL UP, while Fauci got paid US$450,000 a year (+ ?? royalties +++++ bribes) our wonderful public servants are paid 6 – 7 times their equivalents in US or UK with 27 paid more than AU$1,000,000!

      Yes…..and no. If someone is involved in selling / promoting / advertizing a product, it’s very clear that ‘considerations” might swing their attitude toward that product. A movie reviewer might give 5 stars to a 3-star flick: an on-line influencer might declare that brand A is best even though it does not wash brightest; or it might be awarding three “aprons” in the restaurant appraisal etc etc etc for baked beans with Spam. However, how many “infant nutritionists” would announce (after being offered dough to do so) that rat poison is the best food for kiddies, if they were not already evil: already intent on destruction?

      Ascribing the “money motive” to the perps behind all this Covid infamy is like announcing the Manson gang were in it for the dough because they also took a few knick-knacks from the crime scene; that Adolf + Co were primarily interested in loot because they stripped their millions of victims of their possessions before the showers; that the killing fields in Cambodia was about wealth-creation for the Khmer Rouge.

      Nah…all just a side line. The gene-jabs are working their way through the population as intended. ABS stats show about 9000 excess deaths in oz in the past 12 months, when all that hand-washing, mask-wearing, etc etc shoulda REDUCED overall mortality (recall that health outfits ascribe the “non-appearance” of flu…and flu deaths…..to this. And food poisoning, meningococcal etc?). The boulders rolling downhill are gathering pace, and growing in size.

      It’s an avalanche which will DESTROY the village, NOT meant to gain access to the title deeds for those who set the death wave rolling. You will own nothing…and you will be dead!

      Honesty in politics and the politically biased media is not only absent, but is no longer tolerated. For example, it was the MAGA King’s honesty about the many lies targeting him and his policies that were concocted by Democrat politicians and dutifully echoed by the MSM that cause them and their followers to hate him so much. Another example is why a repressive regime always require a Ministry of Truth to make their lies seem true.

      Fauci’s ‘truth to power’ award is clear evidence that lies beget other lies until the truth is no longer relevant.

    He obviously knows the secret to successful aging is cash.
    He is Science.
    Though showing some signs of immortality, he will most likely one day succumb.
    And then white smoke will eventually appear over NIH, and a new Science will be incarnated.

    Perhaps the Great Ultra MAGA King will return and oust him.
    No other living mortal has the power.
    Otherwise, the largesse will continue unabated, and without even a side glance from the elite.

    Trump threatens to fire Fauci in rift with disease expert
    By ZEKE MILLER
    November 3, 2020

    OPA-LOCKA, Fla. (AP) — President Donald Trump is suggesting that he will fire Dr. Anthony Fauci after Tuesday’s election, as his rift with the nation’s top infectious disease expert widens while the nation sees its most alarming outbreak of the coronavirus since the spring.

    Speaking at a campaign rally in Opa-locka, Florida, Trump expressed frustration that the surging cases of the virus that has killed more than 231,000 people in the United States this year remains prominent in the news. That sparked his supporters to begin chanting “Fire Fauci.”

    “Don’t tell anybody but let me wait until a little bit after the election,” Trump replied to thousands of supporters early Monday, adding he appreciated their “advice.”

    Last night, U.S. Senator Roger Marshall received Dr. Anthony Fauci’s unredacted FY2020 financial disclosures. The release following a heated Senate exchange between Fauci and Marshall which concluded with Fauci called the senator a “moron.”

    The financial disclosures contain a wealth of previously unknown information. For example, the Fauci household’s net worth exceeds $10.4 million.

    During the pandemic year of 2020, their household income, perks and benefits, and unrealized gains totaled $1,776,479 — including federal income and benefits of $868,812; outside royalties and travel perks totaling $113,298; and investment accounts increasing by $794,369.

    Are the COVID vaccines killing people over time? The data suggests yes.

    While overall the risk of getting the COVID shots is quite small, the data is increasingly suggesting that these shots might have some very serious long term consequences. The graph to the right, taken from a January 2022 report Group Life COVID-19 Mortality Survey Report[pdf – 56 Pages] of the Society of Actuaries Research Institute and first spotted by Dr. Aaron Kheriaty, indicates a shocking and inexplicable increase in mortality among the nation’s young. As noted by Thomas Lifson at American Thinker:

    Something is killing off large numbers of 25- to 54-year-olds in the United States, and the powers that be in government and the media are pretending it is not happening. There is no visible effort to study the alarming statistics gathered by actuaries for the life insurance industry, which keeps track of deaths because they directly impact their bottom line through claims from the insured. [emphasis in original]

    These deaths are not Wuhan flu deaths. However, the sudden rise of mortality from many other causes among the young in the third quarter of 2021, only a short time after the majority of the population had been given the COVID shots, is significant and strongly suggests the shots have something to do with this.

    That supposition is further strengthened by another story today:

    Makes you wonder why the chief of the TGA described Ivermectin as ” Horse paste ” and said it doesn’t work . I assume that he has at least some medical knowledge . At the time my reading was telling me that Ivermectin had a very good , lengthy safety record and that there was plenty of evidence showing that Ivermectin had been used successfully against Covid 19 in a number of countries already .
    Makes you wonder why Hydroxychloroquine was banned so quickly , based on no testing despite having an excelent safety record since 1955 ?
    Makes you wonder why Nikolai Petrovsky has had so much trouble with the TGA .
    Makes you wonder why the dodgy mRNA ” vaccines ” were approved so quickly and seemingly without any additional testing beyond the very minimal testing with secret results done so far ?
    I wonder what could be motivating the TGA to make such inexplicable decisions ?

      To suggest that the whole Covid show was just a money-making scam is a diversion from further enquiry into what I see as the deeper, nastier reality.

      “Ascribing the “money motive” to the perps behind all this Covid infamy is like announcing the Manson gang were in it for the dough because they also took a few knick-knacks from the crime scene; that Adolf + Co were primarily interested in loot because they stripped their millions of victims of their possessions before the showers; that the killing fields in Cambodia was about wealth-creation for the Khmer Rouge.”

    Fauci and friends at the US NIH are paid by Big Pharma to hide (produce fake science) our Vitamin and elemental deficiencies which causes all chronic diseases in the general population and to promote/enable the sales of dangerous man-made patentable chemicals (like statins or Selective Serotonin uptake inhibitors neither of which has a medical/scientific justification to be given) to treat chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes, cancer, depression, or dementia.

    For example, 43% of Americans and 70% of older women take calcium supplements to prevent osteoporosis which is a chronic health problem causing an epidemic of knee and hip replacements as well has spinal fractures. Very painful, no solution.

    Research has paradoxically shown that it is not safe to take Calcium supplements (Taking calcium supplements increases the buildup of calcium in the blood vessels because of deficiencies) because almost 100% of the world’s population is deficient in one or more of the following: Vit D, K2, magnesium, zinc, and calcium.

    The US NIH hide the results of a Grassroots study where half of the participants got calcium only supplements and the other half received Vit D plus calcium supplements. The Grassroots study took blood samples, from all study participants, to determine the patients, in-blood calcium and in-blood calcium plus Vit D, levels. What was found that patients who were not taking Vit D supplements had high blood calcium levels (dangerously high) after taking calcium supplements. Those taking calcium plus Vit D did not have high levels of calcium in their blood after taking calcium supplements.

    The NIH allow/forced (NIH provided funds to pay for the additional study work) the Grassroots study to be changed (a failed study would have forced this unbelievable evidence of a dangerous deficiency to be reported and discussed) to allow the study to test to determine the minimum Vit D supplements to be given to the calcium only subjects to enable their bodies to reduce calcium in the blood stream to match the Vit D and calcium supplement cohort.

    The study found that when Vit D levels in the blood were 37 ng/ml or greater the body reduced calcium in the blood stream to enable supplement calcium absorption and to reduce the risk of calcium build-up. The calcium absorption does not increase for bond Vit D levels in the blood, of greater than 37 ng/ml because the smart kidney limits the amount of active Vit D produced.

    Active Vit D is produced by the kidney from bond Vit D and is used for calcium control. The kidney limits production of active Vit D to 37 ng/ml, even when the level of bond Vit D is higher than 37 ng/ml. So a person that had bond Vit D in their blood stream of 60 ng/ml will only produce 37 ng/ml of active Vit D for calcium absorption.

    85% of the Vit D used by the body is raw unactivated Vit D, not bond Vit D. The unactived Vit D is used to by cells to active 1500 genomes in the cell, to produce biochemicals. Raw Vit D is the only form of Vit D that can enter the cells. Bond Vit D cannot enter the cells. The cells activate the raw Vit D when they need to produce biochemicals and then after use, destroy the active Vit D which they produce.

    In addition to limiting the calcium level in the blood, Vit D protects against calcium build up another way also. Vit D enables the cells to produce proteins that remove calcium from blood vessels. Unfortunately, those proteins require Vit K2 to activate the created protein and almost the entire population is deficient in Vit K2 and magnesium which is also required to enable the body to protect itself.

    Heart Health: Ideal State Adequate intake of vitamin K 2 has been shown to lower the risk of vascular damage because it activates MGP (William: MGP is produced by Vit D), which inhibits calcium from depositing in the vessel walls. Hence, calcium is available for multiple other roles in the body, leaving the arteries healthy and flexible.46

      One wonders how much healthier people would be (and how much less lethal cases of covid) if vitamin D deficiencies were corrected, but not a word from medical authorities.

      And vit D deficiencies are extremely common, even in sunny countries like Australia or Israel.

      Plus Leftists say African Americans had a higher incidence of lethal covid than others due to “racism”. It was simply due to even greater vitamin D deficiency than others due to living in non-tropical countries with darker skin.

    Maybe we should be more concerned about Australia. I hear of plans by APRA to give WHO control of our medical systems. Is this verified? A question was asked on here about money flowing down in Australia. My guess every leader and health officer plus others.

      Pulltheotherone

      Not sure that it is through APRA which is a financial authority but your basic premise of WHO control is correct. The US has moved amendments to the World Health Assembley which transfers more powers to the WHO. These amendments effectively transfer sovereignty of pandemic response & health decisions from individual countries to a one world government platform. The CCP controlled WHO is empire building under directions of WEF & Gates. Currently 40 countries have agreed to support the resolutions including UK, Canada & Australia. This vote is scheduled for the end of May & there is currently scrambling in the US to stop Biden but his recently extended & open ended emergency pandemic powers may override the resistance.
      So if you thought our response of forced vaccinations & police state violence against dissenting protesters was over the top “we ain’t seen nothing yet” if these clowns control the levers of our health independence. Hope you acquire a taste for plant based proteins after the WHO declare a health emergency from meat eating causing climate change.

    One wonders what influences were put upon the Australian Federal Health Minister to so vehemently deny the use of Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine and obstruct the development and use of the Australian developed Covid vaccine in this country (but available elsewhere). Alas he is soon to be departed (to where?) so opportunities to question him will be limited.
    It would be interesting to see if the results of well-placed FOI requests showed certain ‘royalties’ were placed in off-shore accounts.

        the same as the emergency use has been taken away from the PCR test by the WHO so there is no actual test for covid anymore at this time, but tell that to the sheeple BAAAAA

      Use your imagination for the rest.

        did everything within his power.

        I would EXPECT nothing else of a student of Herr Klaus Schwab.

        Hunt won’t be around much longer to answer any difficult questions. He retires at this election.

        I assume he’ll get a comfortable low hours highly overpaid job as a “consultant” at Big Pharma.

      There were a number of things that Big Pharma in cooperation with Big Health had to quash in the lead up to the vaccine rollout. Firstly it was the early anti-virals like HCQ/IVM etc and the whole idea of pre/early treatment. Secondly they had to quash the idea of natural immunity. In order to achieve both these aims they had to get Big Media on board. There was no way the “vaccine only” proponents were going to allow people to actually treat themselves , prepare themselves ( Vitamin D etc) or let their own immune systems do their job. There was also no way Big Pharma were every going to voluntarily release the adverse effects data in real time. To allow any, or all of these would have shredded their sales budgets for vaccines.

        Indeed, the influence is widespread — of not just Big Pharma, but all the companies (asset managers) that are shareholders in Big Pharma.

        Even Greg Hunt, the Minister couldn’t do this without help and pressure from the actors in the TGA and AHPRA and the media. Even if Hunt was trying to do an honest job (and there is little evidence he is) he would be hard pressed to give medical instructions that were counter to what the TGA / AHPRA / AMA wanted. Not only that but if the ABC and media were reporting the news on natural immunity, vitamins, supplements, and ivermectin/HCQ, that would throw a spanner in the plan too. Plus if there were many professors at universities speaking up, that would also skewer the plan. But Big Pharma and the asset managers that profit are an octopus. The money and power is so vast and the corruption so deeply spread that Hunt is aided from many angles.

        Look at what happened to the few professors who did speak up?

        And most journalists are just terrified of getting medical info wrong. Plus Pfizer and Johnson&Johnson advertising budgets are big, and the government advertising is probably even bigger, and thousands of GP’s are either too time poor to research or to terrified of being sacked to say anything.

        Then, under all that is the tendency for people to want a simple Yes/No solution to a problem, one that said “take this injection – it will solve everything”.

    Thanks for this post Jo and it just shows us how the secrets can be hidden, whether it’s the health system or their so called EXISTENTIAL threat of climate change.
    But really the climate change BS and fra-d is very easy to understand if you just study the data over the last century or since 1970 or whatever period.
    And they’re wasting trillions $ on this idiocy and yet we now live in the very best of times and easily the safest time for Humans as well.
    But try and explain this easily found information to our so called scientists or pollies or even the MSM and you’ll encounter a wall of ignorance and hostility etc, that’s very hard to penetrate.
    But so many elites want to get a part of those trillions $, so I expect that’s primarily why nobody can break through.
    People like Bolt, Lomborg, Lindzen, Christy, Spencer, Eschenbach,etc have been working for a long time to explain the data, but still the BS and fra-d seems to be impenetrable to logic and reason.

    Just recently reading somewhere that that unvaxed were 14X more likely to end up in hospital or die, than the vaxed. But my head just can’t square that with the medium/average age of covid deaths being well into the 80s. That seems to point to the aged being largely unvaxed?

      It just means that they were near the end anyhow.

      The chances of a person in the age range 70 to 90 “moving on” is far greater than the 20 to 40s.

      Many possibly had CV19 but passed on because of old age catching up.

        I don’t post on most of those Vaxxed versus unvaxxed statistics as they are junk. The vaccinated are a different group of people to the unvaccinated. They’re older, more high risk, self selected, and confounding variables swamp the cause and effect links.

        Further complicating it — there is a group of the unvaxxed who are unvaccinated because they are too sick or frail to vaccinate. I heard Mark McGowan say proudly that 90% of all people in nursing homes in WA were vaccinated, which made me wonder how many of the 10% who were not, were “too frail to vaccinate”. If 10% of nursing home patients are “too frail” then surely they are also the most likely people on the planet to end up in hospital? But where o where is that data?

        Almost none of the statistics comparing the groups is worth sharing. Confounded up the kazoo.

      it depends on where you look for information for what you will find, l’m sure you are aware of the story’s completely opposite to what you have read

      it is just a head cold now to the biggest majority, even for the elderly and those with comorbidity’s
      it is said that nobody has died with covid at home, they had to go to hospital to die?

    Some interesting thoughts on the Office of National Statistics (UK) data, from Mathew Crawford.
    He also refers to work done by Steve Kirsch, and papers by Neil, Fenton et al.
    https://roundingtheearth.substack.com/p/proof-of-statistical-sieves-in-ve

    He talks about the “baffling Immortality Effect” of the Genetic-code Injections given in the fight against COVID-19.
    Mostly, he’s noting the oddities in the data without drawing firm conclusions.

    But the ONS clutch the raw data tightly to their chests, and I doubt they’ll ever let independent auditors come in and check their methods and results.

    As someone who has worked in big pharma and is still currently working in the field as a rep for a small health care company, Drs do not trust pharmaceutical companies let alone the TGA or APHRA or any other government organization affiliated with the pharma industry. Many Drs I talk to, do not trust the COVID data and are afraid to speak out for the fear of losing their license.

    There is alot I can say about the unhealthy relationship between pharma and the gov ministers office but for the sake of not being sued for possible slander, I’ll just leave it as that…..

      That’s also why less GP’s/ Drs are members of the AMA as well. Now, that we have been somewhat released from draconian COVID restriction people are actually being treated by their GP’s etc for COVID. There have been a number of my family with COVID and their doctors have prescribed drugs ” to help with COVID”. Mostly it seems to be Prednisolone ( steroid ) to maybe help with inflammation etc. But it’s a start. With the introduction of Paxlovid to certain adverse health groups (eg immunocompromised) for early anti-viral treatment of COVID there may also be a bit of an awakening. I’m sure most doctors know about IVM/HCQ and possibly even the dozens of other generics that have been partly successful for COVID. Vaccines alone were never going to be the answer.

      l can only talk about the medical centre that l go to that has more than a dozen doctors but l know they were making a hell of a lot of money through this centre pushing jabbs
      l have had heated debates with Dr’s and counter staff because l will not be jabbed, as well as the latest that l still want to wait outside the front of the centre in the fresh air for my appointments but they have decided that l can be put back in with the Vax shedders waiting room LOL

      My feeling is that GP’s largely follow the advice from the TGA, AHPRA, and the college’s with little research into the data.
      Though sceptical of big Pharma, they still essentially do what they are told.

    How do such payments ever come under the heading ‘Royalties’?

    Did Fauci develop the ‘vaccines’ and then simply move the production across to Big Pharma? What partial ownership of the drug development is he being paid for? What are the reasons this is not simply a case of cash-in-the-pocket to the most powerful person in the USA in the epidemiological business. The man who had the yes-no power to decree the use or non-use of these drugs.

            No worries. The “meat” doesn’t begin to be served until about 0:42:22, so your complaint is valid. After that there are some interesting new (to me) things, but they continue to be drawn out. It’s like looking at a puzzle that’s only partly assembled, with most of the pieces scattered about, and they are being turned over very slowly.

            So, what impressed me was what I hadn’t heard before, like just how much research into biowarfare was ongoing, and where it was, occasionally (coincidentally 😉 ) correlated with outbrakes of diseases, like Lyme disease, for one.

            But 4 hours is a long time to invest in a picture that isn’t yet complete, unless you’re someone who likes to try go put puzzles together.

            I guess the takehome is, there are a lot more bio black ops than we know about, and more that may have escaped than ‘they’ want us to know, …maybe.

    Australia’s TGA is self-funded by law.

    Here is their schedule of fees and charges.

    You’ll probably find a few gems and absurdities in there. Obviously it is not a game for anyone but Big Pharma to play and pay.

    No support for small manufacturers.

    Have not seen this mentioned, strange days indeed.

    A witness, who found Symonds in his vehicle about two minutes after he crashed, told the Courier Mail that his two blue heelers refused to leave his side.

    “One of them was very sensitive and didn’t want to leave him,” she said.

    “It would just growl at you every time we tried to move him or go near him.

    “My partner tried to get (Symonds) out of the car, to put him on to his back.

    “He was unconscious, not responsive and had no pulse.”

      From the skid marks, did he just go to sleep. Personal experience shows you can just go so far stalling it off and then you just shut down. If you are lucky enough to simply gradually run off the bitumen, the sound of gravel is enough to make you wake up. If you actually move to the opposite side of the road and don’t hit an oncoming vehicle head-on and are crossing more diagonally, at speed, the end is decided by what you hit because you wouldn’t have any time to react.

      I didn’t know Andrew at all, but it was a very sad time hearing of his death. He has always come across as one of the people one would love to have called a mate. So sorry for his family.
