Do Babies Lives Matter? Did the FDA approve the use of Pfizer vaccines in babies based on almost no benefit, in almost no children

Was the data Pfizer sent, really this bad?

If it wasn’t, it should be easy for the FDA and or Pfizer to reply. If it was this extraordinarily rigged to “find” some infinitesimally tiny benefit among the acres of null and even bad results, we have to ask, does anyone care about babies anymore? If the data Pfizer sent is this awful, no one is even trying to hide the corruption. Does the FDA care about its own reputation?

According to Dr Clare Craig (in the video below) — the evidence that Pfizer sent to the FDA is dubious in the extreme: As she tells it — the trial recruited 4,526 children aged from 6 months to 4 years, but as many as 3,000 did not finish the trial. On that basis alone, she says, “the trial should be deemed null and void.” This trial data is so they can get EUA – Emergency Use Authorisation, but they defined severe covid as a raised heartrate and an increased breathing rate — which hardly sounds like an emergency, or something severe.  In the end there were only six children age 2 – 4 that had “severe covid” and who were vaccinated and 1 child that had severe covid that was not vaccinated. There was one child that was hospitalized — they were vaccinated.

In terms of pure cases of Covid — Dr Clare Craig describes a process that filters out nearly every case there was. They vaccinated the babies and children and waited 3 weeks after the first dose for the second dose — but in that time, 34 children got covid who were vaccinated and only 13 got  covid in the placebo group. It worked out as a 30% increased chance of getting covid if they were vaccinated. They ignored that data. It takes a few weeks for the vaccines to generate antibodies, so, the vaccinated were not really vaccinated. We understand the reason, but it doesn’t change that if there is an increased risk during that time, it says something.

Then there was an eight week gap between the second and third dose.  Again, according to Dr Craig, plenty of children were catching covid during that period, but Pfizer and the FDA ignored that data. They filtered out 97% of the incidents of children catching covid. They looked at tiny numbers left over after all the waiting periods. They claim the vaccines work on the basis of 3 covid cases versus 7 after ignoring all the other cases.  There were even 12 children who caught covid twice in the two month follow up period and 11 were vaccinated, mostly with three doses.

Babies are not at risk of Covid… and they have no long term safety data. How is it that an EUA – an Emergency Use Authorisation — even applies to children? The whole cost benefit ratio is vastly different for a one year old to a ninety year old. The long term risks, whatever they are, are so long.
The placebo group was vaccinated — on average — after only six weeks and the trial was unblinded, so there is no long term control group.

As Dr Craig says: “Parents should be demanding that the decision-makers explain themselves.” Not just parents, but where is the media, the Professors, the Doctors, and the elected representatives? Where is the UN Humans Rights Commission, on an issue that actually matters?

….

I seem to recall that it was important for Pfizer to get approval for all ages. It’s not just the bit of extra market share from opening up a new “market” but something much bigger — something about getting approval in every age qualifies the product or indemnifies it in a whole new way. Search engines naturally, are not making that easy to find right now. Perhaps a reader can help explain why — legally — it was important to get the EUA in the USA extended to all ages. The risk they are taking with this shows the stakes must be very high. They know how bad this data is.

    Jo, I have a copy of an article by Dr. Joseph Mercola about the EUA, and the need to get vaccine approval for children. It’s dated December 26, 2021.

    “The Real Reason They Want to Give COVID Jabs to Kids”

    The article is now behind a paywall. However, I have a copy that I can send you. It’s too long to paste here and it’s too late for me to summarise it.

    This is an extraordinary comment on modern society, and how far it has fallen.

    The callous approach to “Approval of Pharmaceuticals”, which has been obvious for several decades, has been taken to a new low in this case and in a sane world would represent the “last straw”.

    Babies are the epitome of “defenceless” and when money goes before them in importance, society has finally reached the bottom: Ugly doesn’t describe it.

    Reality has left the system and will remain hidden deep down in the swamp until such time as corruption can be identified, detailed and punished effectively.

    Looking at the USA as the prime example it’s hard to see anything useful happening in the near future so take care of yourselves.

      Dr Fauci beats Dr Harold Shipman by a mile. Shipman committed suicide, which showed that he had conscience. After all he only murdered 250 people. Described as the nicest serial killer. He was a nice man who killed old ladies. He killed quite a lot of them, but that doesn’t mean he wasn’t an all-round nice bloke. Dr Fauci seems a nice man. Unfortunately Dr Shipman could not hide the statistics.

    It’s insane, nature or a white knight has done its job, every incarnation of the virus gets more contagious and more impotent. The vax is utterly redundant, if ever it wasn’t in all but the most elderly or vulnerable anyway.

    In the UK whilst admitting long covid barely exists with the latest variation, and that nearly all those in hospital have it as a secondary issue, they are still incrementing the death count.

    Dr John Campbell covered this recently and true to form his disapproval was heavily self moderated, such is the power of YT. But if you listen carefully he feels much the same.

    Quite astonishing and disturbing.

    We have outright manipulation and exclusion of data from the trial by Pfizer to create the result they want. Were this in the financial markets the perpetrators would be jailed for a very long time, but because its the “vaccines” any criminal activity is quite permissible.

    We have no long term idea what these dangerous treatments do to babies and young children. But we already have mountains of data showing they promote infection, hospitalisation and death. This is akin to saying we need to feed a poison to babies and some will be sickened and some die with no benefit whatsoever. But thats ok…

    We have a moral catastrophe enveloping all Western nations where dangerous and ill conceived policies on covid and climate change, and others besides, are being pushed out and supported. There are no benefits at all, only death and pain. I simply cannot believe what I see on a daily basis.

    Brooke Jackson, the supervisor of the RCT trials for Pfizer’s initial vaccine, is currently suing her employer for wrongful dismissal after she was suspended for revealing unblinding of clinical trial data & other unacceptable practices. Her employer ( the subcontractor to Pfizer) loftily dismisses her complaint by explaining that the practices were OK because Pfizer knew about

    Re previous post – Pfizer knew about the procedures!

    What hope about dangers of vaccinating babies?

      I’m not sure if I understand this correctly:

      USA:
      – from cnbc:
      ‘You can’t sue Pfizer or Moderna if you have severe Covid vaccine side effects. The government likely won’t compensate you for damages either’:
      DEC 23 2020

      ‘Immune to lawsuits
      In February, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar invoked the Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness Act . The 2005 law empowers the HHS secretary to provide legal protection to companies making or distributing critical medical supplies, such as vaccines and treatments,

      unless there’s “willful misconduct” by the company. The protection lasts until 2024.

      That means that for the next four years, these companies “cannot be sued for money damages in court” over injuries related to the administration or use of products to treat or protect against Covid.’

      —> by making the Covid vaccines part of the regular immunisation schedule for children… those compagnies
      can ‘not’ be sued anymore for vaccine injuries.

      ‘Why vaccine manufacturers are exempt from liability’ by Linda Bentley; July 3, 2017
      Under 42 U.S. Code § 300aa–22 – Standards of responsibility:

      Paragraph (b), which addresses “Unavoidable adverse side effects; warnings” states,

      “(1) No vaccine manufacturer shall be liable in a civil action for damages arising from a vaccine-related injury or death associated with the administration of a vaccine after October 1, 1988, if the injury or death resulted from side effects that were unavoidable even though the vaccine was properly prepared and was accompanied by proper directions and warnings.

      “(2) For purposes of paragraph (1), a vaccine shall be presumed to be accompanied by proper directions and warnings if the vaccine manufacturer shows that it complied in all material respects with all requirements under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act …” unless the plaintiff is able to show the manufacturer engaged in specific conduct or failed to exercise due care by clear and convincing evidence in its compliance with the Act.

      Section (c) Direct warnings, states, “No vaccine manufacturer shall be liable in a civil action for damages arising from a vaccine-related injury or death associated with the administration of a vaccine after October 1, 1988, solely due to the manufacturer’s failure to provide direct warnings to the injured party (or the injured party’s legal representative) of the potential dangers resulting from the administration of the vaccine manufactured by the manufacturer.”

      Section (e) prohibits states from establishing or enforcing a law that would bar an individual from bringing civil action against a vaccine manufacturer for damages for a vaccine-related injury or death if such civil action is not barred by the NCVIA.

      ‘“Because the FDA does not mandate vaccinations or require staff to report their vaccinations…” ‘
      —-> and other people lost their jobs because of mandates…

        from Aaron Siri’s Twiter, ‘realclearpolicy’

        ‘More Transparency & a Bigger Tent Needed for Federal Covid Response’:
        by Aarn Siri, February 28, 2022

        Our country(USA) has some of the most incredible academic institutions the world has ever known. We should be making full use of this brain trust, not taking an approach that seeks to “take down” scientists who voice opposition. This approach has had, and will continue to have, a chilling effect on open scientific debate.

        ———–
        ‘Fauci, chief medical advisor to President Biden on covid-19, at one point even went as far as to tell the media if they criticize him, “They’re really criticizing science because I represent science. That’s dangerous.” ‘
        ——–
        ????
        ‘Vioxx: FDA’s ‘poster child’ for getting it wrong:
        Vioxx (rofecoxib), manufactured by Merck, is probably the poster child for a drug the FDA said was safe — but then had to withdraw from the market.

        Approved by the FDA in 1999, Merck’s “super-aspirin” pain reliever was heavily advertised by a couple of celebrity athletes and used by 80 million people worldwide — before it was abruptly withdrawn from the market
        in 2004 after a study showed it doubled the risk of heart attacks and strokes.

        It was estimated Vioxx caused 140,000 additional heart attacks in the U.S. alone.

        ——

        Months after the patent expired on Lipitor — a statin that was the best-selling drug in history— the FDA added a label warning that Lipitor and other statins could cause diabetes, liver injury, muscle damage and memory impairment.

        ———-

        Diet drug combo fen-phen caused fatal pulmonary hypertension:

        The diet drug fen-phen, a combination of the two medications fenfluramine and phentermine, was immensely popular for weight loss in the 1990s — until the FDA received reports of potentially fatal pulmonary hypertension and more than 100 reports of heart valve problems.

        After issuing warnings, the FDA withdrew the drug in 1997. Legal damages exceeded 13 billion.

        However, the withdrawal cast the FDA in a bad light. In 2009, the top FDA reviewer of fen-phen, Dr.Lutwak, told the press he believed the manufacturer, American Home Products (which later became Wyeth and then Pfizer), knew and hid the risks.

        When the revelations occurred, the FDA’s former commissioner, Dr. David Kessler, said, “I have some concerns that we may be losing sight of what the FDA is all about….

        The question is, who’s the agency’s customers? Who’s the agency partner?”

        But the FDA would not let Lutwak testify about the issue.

        At the time fen-phen was withdrawn (before Lutwak’s accusations), The New York Times wrote:

        “The tale speaks to the limitations of current methods of evaluating drug safety…. It also raises questions about the Food and Drug Administration’s standards for approving diet drugs, as well as about the way that drugs are monitored after they are on the market.” ‘

          More than 20 years ago there was a very revealing expose of the background of the approval of “antidepressants” based on the SSRI concept. Like global CO2 warming there was no core mechanism to the SSRI model and for approval the trials were plentiful with the best of a bad lot being submitted.

          Then these wonder drugs were given to young people who were anxious and when after a few weeks they didn’t get relief too many of them suicided.

          My Trust in this system is now Zero, nil nothing, and believe that investigations and prosecutions are long overdue.

    Naomi Wolf has a video on Rumble. She is with a group of professionals who are reading the released Pfizer documents. She is adamant that they are baby killers.

    if Pharmaceutical companies get permission to use their stuff on babies then their vaccines become legitimate, and then out of reach of the courts.

    There’s also reports of a pre-print paper indicating reduced sperm counts in those taking Pfizer COVID vaccine. I assume its in men, but we not sure these days are we? Could be in women (satire). (https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/andr.13209)

      Alex Berenson has just posted on the sperm count issue:

      However, the authors qualified their findings by reporting that after five months, sperm levels recovered. Thus the decreases were only temporary, they wrote.

      Put aside the fact that a five-month decrease hardly qualifies as temporary for someone trying to start a family – or compared to a “vaccine” that loses effectiveness against Omicron within weeks or months.
      As other writers have pointed out, the actual data in the paper do not really support the argument that sperm levels returned to normal after five months. In fact, by some measures, levels continued to decline.

      https://alexberenson.substack.com/p/urgent-the-covid-vaccine-paper-on/

      Ah…the great altar of depopulation to which all must be sacrificed (especially control groups like children and the unvaxxed).
      In the world of the infected, the immune man is king. Now who could that be? 😉

    It’s an excellent article that tops this thread with Dr Clare Craig, one of the UK’s most sensible and knowledgable commentators throughout our ongoing SARS-CoV-2 saga, again putting facts way ahead of political and scientific propaganda. It’s funny how nobody inside our ruling classes mentions that a healthy body and mind creates and enhances the very human spirit that has got us through so many previous precarious situations without ever resorting to the extremes of lockdowns, school closures, mask wearing, vaccination madness and so on. To me it has felt like nobody in power or positions of influence wanted fear to be assuaged at any time and replaced with the courage that pragmatism offers us all. Even now they prod us with their garbage scare tactics as infections still move among a population as they always will.

    I will never trust any UK politician (or scientist or researcher who has assisted those politicians) that advocated lockdowns, school closures, pressurised vaccinations or masking ever again. And I will never trust the WHO again who had advice on each and every one of those matters which they then chose to ignore in the face of political gain for their suspect and egregious activities. I would like to see a complete and thorough investigation into all these politicians on the same scale as we might afford to a war crimes trial with similar penalties on conclusion of any person being found guilty. No politician should be in any doubt of how badly they have abused the power we have given to them during the COVID-19 years and be sure that the sensible among us never want to see a repeat performance ever again.

    And the punchline to all this is that effective treatments have been available since spring 2020. Immune system booster regimes have been known too. But of course, none of these makes $£billions in profits for Big Pharma and the likes of Bill Gates, Fauci, Soros et al.

    I treated my Covid in April with Ivermectin – in the form of horse de-wormer – and followed the FLCCC treatment protocol. My symptoms were virtually gone 24 hours after the first dose, and then 2 days later I was giving a clear antigen test.
