The Experts

Emily Oster, economist at Brown University

Below is an article recently published by the Atlantic, entitled, “LET’S DECLARE A PANDEMIC AMNESTY  – We need to forgive one another for what we did and said when we were in the dark about COVID,” written by Emily Oster, an economist at Brown University. 

Billing herself as a member of a team of researches (primarily students) interested in “getting the facts out” about COVID, she now admits she was wrong about about just about everything.  

She reminds me of another Emily by the name of Emily Litella, a character that Gilda Radner played on SNL who would go on and on about something and then say.  “Oh, that’s quite different.  Never mind.”  

The problem I have with academics is they never leave the cocoon of their universities, making it impossible for them to deal with new and novel realities.  They’re rule followers at heart, easily manipulated by those in authority. 

I’m sure it never occurred to Oster that the CDC and FDA might be part of a larger conspiracy to bring incredible wealth to the pharmaceutical companies and help the globalists rid the planet of human beings.   

Talking about ACE2 receptors or why smokers usually don’t get it, or the comorbidities associated with deaths from COVID, or anything else that makes COVID unique is probably beyond the purview of someone with an economics degree who writes parenting books.   

She is not a doctor.  Her background is not in healthcare so one wonders why she felt qualified to lead a discussion on a viral outbreak that caused a pandemic.   The fact that it was a bio-weapon would have escaped her altogether.

But for some inexplicable reason, she fashioned herself into a COVID expert (about which she knew nothing) and now a source of wisdom (about which she knows even less). 

I am astonished by this woman’s naivete and based on her Twitter replies, I am not alone. 

Oster thinks those who sounded the alarm about COVID, suffering the slings and arrows, should just let it all go and move on.  She advises that we forgive one another, which begs the question, what have we done that requires her forgiveness? 

Speaking of Pfizer and Moderna, it wasn’t us who said, “Both vaccines have shown very high effectiveness — well over 90% — in clinical trials consisting of thousands of participants, and with limited negative effects.”  She did.  

Armed with lack of clarity due to the different the vaccines, and only glimmers of information, she and her associates passed out antidotes with life and death consequences, that are only now coming to light.  As “experts,” they not only made choices for themselves and for their children, they influenced the choices of a great number of people, with no regard for the consequences.

You can’t call yourself an attorney, if you’re not.  You can’t call yourself a doctor, if you’re not.  Why are self-proclaimed “experts” able to mislead so many people?   If they aren’t accountable, maybe the schools whom they represent should be prosecuted.

And all this time, she was the one spreading misinformation.  She was giving the public her sage advice while making cloth masks for her children to wear outside!    

Through their complicit support of the authorities, whose true objective was to keep us in the dark as long as possible, she and those like her stood by as we were muzzled and locked down, possibly without a clue that it would contribute to child abuse, suicide, and drug abuse.

They permitted the dumbing down of our children and prevented patients from getting life saving treatment.

With glimmers of information, they ruined businesses and barred people from going to Church.

And they did something else, too.

They showed the viciousness of many liberals who have aligned themselves with globalistsYou heard me.  The people who pride themselves on being the most sensitive and caring people in the world are anything but if you get in their way.  Think about it.  They were all just fine with the idea of isolating the unvaxxed.  They didn’t speak up when restaurants and other public places turned people away who didn’t have vaccination cards.

In stores, total strangers would would wag their fingers in your face if you got too close.      

Legitimate vaccine hesitancy became verboten among the “enlightened”.  When researcher after researcher, and doctor after doctor, came forward  to tell the public what they knew, the Ms. Osters of the world labeled them conspiracy theorists and a threat to public health.

The audacity of taking center stage to teach everyone what you don’t know is staggering.  And when she finally accepted she was wrong on multiple counts, she had to take one last parting shot:  “In the face of so much uncertainty, getting something right had a hefty element of luck.”   

We weren’t right because we were lucky!  We were right because we did the research.   “Caring people” think they know better than those of us who do the heavy lifting.  They just do.  How dare we interject truth into the equation.       

So, no, I’m not going to get over it.  My friends and family listened to the likes of her with disastrous consequences.

My cousin’s husband unexpectedly died of a small cancer that suddenly exploded.  They were all “vaccined up,” too, and encouraged others to do the same.  I doubt they ever connected the dots, because they just can’t imagine a world where people would try to kill them.

My closet friends were angry when I tried to warn them, one saying I’ll believe it when I hear it on the news.  This was my college roommate, who for the first time since we met failed to call me on my last birthday.  I don’t want to find out that she’s no longer among us so I pretend she’s fine and am waiting for her to call me next year.        

Then there were my two best friends, one who had a seizure and the other who said goodbye because he just didn’t want to live with all the cancers that suddenly popped up out of nowhere. 

I told both of them about the vaccines.   Neither of them listened to me because they were listening to the Emily Osters of the world. 

I can’t see myself ever moving on without some kind of acknowledgement from these self-appointed experts that they were wrong because they didn’t due diligence, preferring instead to regurgitate what the MSM was dishing out at the time. 

Not looking for a long apology, but some of her ilk might want to at least say they’re sorry for labeling us right-winged, anti-vaxxer, extremists, too. 

Saying, they didn’t know, and then suggesting it was just pure luck on the part of those who did, is positively insulting.  

Another inane comment she made:  “Remember when the public-health community had to spend a lot of time and resources urging Americans not to inject themselves with bleach? That was bad. Misinformation was, and remains, a huge problem. But most errors were made by people who were working in earnest for the good of society.”  

That she would single out Trump as a culprit of misinformation is the height of hypocrisy 

Because if there is anyone guilty of misinformation, it’s her!  And her advice didn’t just lead to one or two injuries.  Millions and millions of people were severely injured or died as a result of advice like hers.  Had she done the research, she would have discovered Pfizer did not use the 40,000 people they had enrolled in their study to determine the safety and efficacy of mRNA as she claims.  They used only 170 people  before turning it all over to the FDA for emergency use.

So when she says, we didn’t know, what she should be saying is we didn’t care enough to do the research and although there were a lot of people who did, they chose not to listen.  Had she listened, she would have learned about the animal studies done on mRNA years ago where the animal subjects who were vaccinated later died when encountering coronavirus in the wild.  At the conclusion of these studies, it was strongly recommended that humans not be subjected to mRNA research. 

Those of us who did the work and suffered the indignities of being dismissed aren’t going to be able to get over this anytime soon.  So she’s wrong about that, too.   

Frankly Oster, and those like her, should be prosecuted for putting themselves in a space where people believed they knew what they were talking about when they didn’t.  It seems like malpractice to bill yourself as an expert and fall so short of the mark.  

Here someone who agrees with me and says it so much better than I have:


LET’S DECLARE A PANDEMIC AMNESTY  – We need to forgive one another for what we did and said when we were in the dark about COVID, written by Emily Oster

I have been reflecting on this lack of knowledge thanks to a class I’m co-teaching at Brown University on COVID. We’ve spent several lectures reliving the first year of the pandemic, discussing the many important choices we had to make under conditions of tremendous uncertainty.

Some of these choices turned out better than others. To take an example close to my own work, there is an emerging (if not universal) consensus that schools in the U.S. were closed for too long: The health risks of in-school spread were relatively low, whereas the costs to students’ well-being and educational progress were high. The latest figures on learning loss are alarming.  But in spring and summer 2020, we had only glimmers of information. Reasonable people—people who cared about children and teachers—advocated on both sides of the reopening debate.

Another example: When the vaccines came out, we lacked definitive data on the relative efficacies of the Johnson & Johnson shot versus the mRNA options from Pfizer and Moderna. The mRNA vaccines have won out. But at the time, many people in public health were either neutral or expressed a J&J preference. This misstep wasn’t nefarious. It was the result of uncertainty.

Remember when the public-health community had to spend a lot of time and resources urging Americans not to inject themselves with bleach? That was bad. Misinformation was, and remains, a huge problem. But most errors were made by people who were working in earnest for the good of society.

Given the amount of uncertainty, almost every position was taken on every topic. And on every topic, someone was eventually proved right, and someone else was proved wrong. In some instances, the right people were right for the wrong reasons. In other instances, they had a prescient understanding of the available information.

The people who got it right, for whatever reason, may want to gloat. Those who got it wrong, for whatever reason, may feel defensive and retrench into a position that doesn’t accord with the facts. All of this gloating and defensiveness continues to gobble up a lot of social energy and to drive the culture wars, especially on the internet. These discussions are heated, unpleasant and, ultimately, unproductive. In the face of so much uncertainty, getting something right had a hefty element of luck. And, similarly, getting something wrong wasn’t a moral failing. Treating pandemic choices as a scorecard on which some people racked up more points than others is preventing us from moving forward.

We have to put these fights aside and declare a pandemic amnesty. We can leave out the willful purveyors of actual misinformation while forgiving the hard calls that people had no choice but to make with imperfect knowledge. Los Angeles County closed its beaches in summer 2020. Ex post facto, this makes no more sense than my family’s masked hiking trips. But we need to learn from our mistakes and then let them go. We need to forgive the attacks, too. Because I thought schools should reopen and argued that kids as a group were not at high risk, I was called a “teacher killer” and a “génocidaire.” It wasn’t pleasant, but feelings were high. And I certainly don’t need to dissect and rehash that time for the rest of my days.

Student test scores have shown historic declines, more so in math than in reading, and more so for students who were disadvantaged at the start. We need to collect data, experiment, and invest. Is high-dosage tutoring more or less cost-effective than extended school years? Why have some states recovered faster than others? We should focus on questions like these, because answering them is how we will help our children recover.

Many people have neglected their health care over the past several years. Notably, routine vaccination rates for children (for measles, pertussis, etc.) are way down. Rather than debating the role that messaging about COVID vaccines had in this decline, we need to put all our energy into bringing these rates back up. Pediatricians and public-health officials will need to work together on community outreach, and politicians will need to consider school mandates.

The standard saying is that those who forget history are doomed to repeat it. But dwelling on the mistakes of history can lead to a repetitive doom loop as well. Let’s acknowledge that we made complicated choices in the face of deep uncertainty, and then try to work together to build back and move forward.

  1. No, I will not get over it. I will never get over it. A coup of government has taken place. Those that have eyes that see and ears that hear: Wake Up! The use of a dangerous unlicensed vaccine for a half baked “computer sequenced virus” is not okay. Bio labs science dedicated to destroying humans is not okay! Doctors forced to repeat the evil rhetoric of wicked pharma companies working in tandem with an evil political regime is not okay. Using the forever emergency use authorization is not okay.

    Do not make peace with evil. Destroy it.

  2. She doesn’t want to be sued!

    • Gail Sheppard says

      She should have considered that when she realized she didn’t know what she was talking about!

      • Angela Sinz says

        Why is it that in 2020 and 2021 everyone who died, died of covid? But today when old and young die from a sudden death or a very recent cancer diagnosis it is not okay to ask their family or friends if they had received the covid shot? And then you’re left guessing based on their occupation or some other clues. A funeral director told me that they are not allowed to ask families that question. He himself was vaxxed and boosted, and yet he fails to see the hypocrisy or make the connection. Gail, the separation of friendship you mention has been one of my biggest dissappointments. That along with the disappointment from the church’s response. However, in our circle our phrase is, “covid is our friend,” since it has shed light on and revealed the truth about many things.

        • Official Government Reports prove COVID
          Vaccination is causing Depopulation at a frightening rate

          ‘ According to official statistics published by 28 countries across the continent, Europe has recorded over 193,000 more excess deaths so far this year than it normally recorded prior to the alleged emergence of Covid-19.

          The continent has also suffered nearly 30,000 more excess deaths than it recorded in 2020 at the height of the alleged Covid-19 pandemic and nearly 27,000 more excess deaths than it recorded in 2021.

          The statistics do not include the country of Ukraine so the increased number of deaths can not be blamed on the deaths of Ukrainians in the ongoing war in the country.

          It appears instead that the record-breaking increase in deaths can be attributed to the fact that so many children and young adults are now dying alongside a persistent increase in deaths among all other age groups.

          Is it just a coincidence that the increase in deaths among children started to occur as soon as the European Medicines Agency (EMA) approved the Covid-19 injection for 12 to 15-year-olds?

          Is it just a coincidence that that increase in deaths among children levelled out just prior to the EMA approving the Covid-19 injection for 5 to 11-year-old children, and then shot up again in the weeks after?

          Helpful statistics published by the UK Government on deaths by Covid-19 vaccination status strongly suggest it is far from a coincidence, with each and every single age group in England proving to have the lowest mortality rates per 100,000 people among the unvaccinated.

          This means we have indisputable evidence that the Covid-19 injections are killing people, and with over 193,000 extra excess deaths across Europe this year, we are quite possibly witnessing depopulation due to Covid-19 vaccination unfold before our very eyes. … ‘

          They are mindblowing…!
          The government is not your friend

          • Gail Sheppard says

            You know that old commercial for shake and bake, where the mother produces the dinner and the little girl says, “And I helped!” That would be what Ms Oster would be saying if this whole culling thing worked out for them: “And I helped!”

  3. I understand that you would not forgive her or accept her forgiveness (her, or anyone in a similar position as hers).

    But I don’t see, at least in that article, that she is admitting to be wrong about… anything at all.

    Lately I am meditating on John 16:33. “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

    Not so much as an easy answer. Actually as a very difficult one for me to believe in, that despite every tragedy I see and hear about every day, in some way I can’t comprehend, Christ actually has overcome it.

    • Gail Sheppard says

      It’s not a matter of forgiveness. How do you forgive people who are part of the machine? She was hired to do what she did with grant money.

      I said I’m not going to “get over it” which is what she really wants. She knows she is going to meet with resistance when it comes to that next gig so she wants us all to admit we made the same mistakes for the same reasons.

      But she’s wrong. A lot of us didn’t make mistakes because we did the hand work. We weren’t just parroting the pharmaceutical companies, the CDC and FDA. It became obvious fairly early on that what they were saying just wasn’t adding up but they never dreamed we’d figure out that they were trying to kill us.

      To forgive and move on, the people who led others down the garden path have to take total responsibility for their actions. She’s not. Have you noticed how liberally she uses the word “we”? Because she only had “glimmers of information” and had to make “choices,” she trying to make the case that this was true of all of us.

      The truth is that while she was towing the party line, we were listening to the many researchers and doctors who were coming forward. We were reading past studies.

      The “glimmer of information” she chose to believe came from Pfizer, Moderna, CDC and FDA, and she literally parroted their every word.

      She’s worried that if people “don’t move on” she will stop receiving grants because she failed. The same with the Atlantic. They don’t want to lose their readership over the garbage they put out. So they think that if they can get us to buy in to the nonsense they were just doing the best job that they could, they can move on.

      That’s not going to happen. The jig is up. A lot of people are suffering because of their actions. We know the part they played in all this and we know why. They are part of the apparatus and people will be pointing this out at every turn.

      It’s too late for them and those like them.

      • George Michalopulos says

        If I may add this: forgiveness entails repentance. These people (like Mrs Oster) have shown no contrition at all.

        A good start would be Dr Fauci going on live TV and confessing his culpability. Then –and only then–could forgiveness be valid.

        True story, David Berkowitz, the Son of Sam killer became a Christian in prison. He became a sincere Christian. How do we know? Because every time he’s come up for parole, he asked that he remain in prison, he acknowledges his crimes.

  4. oops, sorry!

    [Video – 09:13]

    Paul Joseph Watson on the above…
    {Even the advert is funny.]

  5. “Let’s acknowledge that we made complicated choices
    in the face of deep uncertainty, and then try to work together
    to build back and move forward.”

    At least she doesn’t say ‘build back better‘.

  6. It was worth the read for the Emily Litella reference alone.

  7. There was:
    – no amnesty for Trump.
    – no mercy for those who resisted Covid lies and pressure.
    – no mercy for those who lost lives and businesses during BLM / Antifa violence.
    – no amnesty for J6 protesters.
    – no mercy whatsoever for the Ukrainian Orthodox Church.

    There is also no fear of God, no repentance, no Christ, no “create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me” from Oster or anyone else who knowingly did violence yet now prepare an appeal to Christian (!) faith in order to *blame* Christians for *being unforgiving.*

    The hypocrisy is noxious, indeed.

  8. Amnesty? Does this mean I get my job back?

    Well, no. We’re sorry. We had to “make complicated choices [for you] in the face of deep uncertainty” that we were absolutely certain about.

  9. William Tighe says
  10. The chief problem with leftist motormouths is
    that they often don’t realise they don’t know
    what they are talking about until long after
    they have talked about it.

  11. The narcissist/codependent dynamic on a massive (international scale) continues.

    The Covid Totalitarians (our betters, our overlords, the Gnostics (i.e., the narcissists)) expect to be obeyed and not questioned, and they do not ask for forgiveness or apologize. They abuse the population “for our safety.” The populace (the codependents) are expected to play their role and not question, above all do not shake the dynamic.

    Remember that when the real Nazis were exterminating the undesirables (the Jews, the Slavs, the gypsies, etc.), it was being ostensibly done for “the safety of the German population,” and those being taken to extermination/camps were told they were being taken away “for their safety.” Same dynamic, different decade.

    We must always beware when we are told that freedoms are being taken away “for our safety.” That’s a huge red flag indicating massive manipulation, abuse, lies, lies, and more lies, for the benefit of some at the expense of others.

    Their shameless, massive emotional abuse on an international scale continues.

    Expect it to continue: they know no other way and it will always be their M.O. Our job is to not let them abuse us, not let them get away with it.

  12. Austin Martin says

    The problem I have with academics is they never leave the cocoon of their universities, making it impossible for them to deal with new and novel realities. They’re rule followers at heart, easily manipulated by those in authority.

    Socrates was offended at the accusation of taking money for teaching, and the original Hippocratic Oath forbid it. Teacher is one of those professions that used to be held in suspicion and now is held in honor, along with stage musician, actor, political power seeker, investment banker, travelling preacher, mad scientist, physician and pharmacist. At some point these went from being our villains to being out heroes.

  13. This piece by Oster in The Atlantic is despicable! No repentance = no forgiveness. We will move on, but not in company with those in denial about their responsibility and who have learned nothing from their complicity with the abusers in power.

    • Saruman:
      Shall we not take council as we once did? Shall we not have peace?

      We shall have peace… We shall have peace when you answer for the burning of the Westfold! When you answer for the children who lie dead on the plains! For the soldiers who were hewn even as they lay dead! We shall have peace when you hang from a gibbet for the sport of your own crows!

      Somehow the reference seems appropriate…

    • George Michalopulos says

      Never better said, Karen.

  14. Just a dad says

    Forgiveness yes, forgetting – NO. (I am not in the business of deciding who is repentant and who is not, I leave that to Him)

    The veil was lifted even further; evil, corruption, dishonesty, greed, and much worse were all brought into the light for all to see. Now we decide how to deal with it and move forward. I voted for President Trump, twice, but I certainly hope I do not have to do it again. He has culpability in this mess too – not as much as Fauci, Biden, and other now-obvious players. However when we talk about the bogus “vaccine” that was rushed into peoples’ arms, let us not forget that Operation Warpspeed was green-lit and enthusiastically pushed by a President desperate for re-election. The Democrats, between June and November 2020 were right in questioning Trumps motives in giving pharmaceutical companies and the FDA, NIH, CDC, etc. free rein to cut corners, hide data, and open the doors to the lobbyists. Once they got control it was far worse, of course, but we should also not forget what happened before November of 2020.

    • Gail Sheppard says

      I wouldn’t blame Trump for the failure of the vaccines, as the entire world ended up with the same result and they weren’t part Operation Warp Speed.

      The only thing Trump did was make a promise to the American people that he would get a vaccine out as soon as humanly possible by opening up the opportunity for researchers around the globe to make proposals.

      Operation Warp Speed actually selected a different candidate for vaccine for monkey studies, called NantKwest/ImmunityBio.

      According to a 27 May 2020 version of a COVID-19 vaccine table regularly updated by the World Health Organization (WHO) 125 candidates were in development—and the NantKwest/ImmunityBio candidate Operation Warp Speed chose was not among them.

      The only other thing Trump did was push the head of the FDA to make a decision. The guy was on vacation somewhere, later claiming he had COVID, and Trump insisted he come back to Washington DC to make a decision. The decision should have been not to move forward. He made a different decision.

      You’ll have to prove the statement that “Trump gave the pharmaceutical companies and the FDA, NIH, CDC, etc. free rein to cut corners, hide data, and open the doors to the lobbyists.” I suspect this is an assumption on your part because no president has ever had that authority. The President is only responsible for implementing and enforcing the laws written by Congress and, to that end, he appoints the heads of the federal agencies, but that’s it.

      When it comes to healthcare, Trump wouldn’t have had any greater insight than any other president before him. Fauci did, though. Fauci served under 7 presidents.

      The only thing I can fault Trump for is saying, “Sure, get the vaccine.” Not sure why he would say that even in passing. It’s certainly not a position embraced by his voter base. But at the end of the day, you’ve got to select the best one. Not the prefect one because there is no perfect one.

      Trump knows how to remove obstacles.

      • Just a dad says

        We can agree to disagree on a few points you made, the rest of it I would not debate. The last sentence is very true: “Trump knows how to remove obstacles.” It is my belief, your articulate response not withstanding, that President Trump did what he could (given limited medical knowledge, given that he was surrounded by corrupt people like Fauci, Collins, etc. who were hiding data and colluding with pharmaceutical companies like Moderna and Pfizer) to remove obstacles to get an American made vaccine released before Nov 2020.

        The point you made that I disagree most with is this comment: “The President is only responsible for implementing and enforcing the laws written by Congress and, to that end, he appoints the heads of the federal agencies, but that’s it.”

        Biden ran amok with his power to sign executive orders, starting the day after he was inaugurated. President Trump signed 220 executive orders in 4 years, the most since Jimmy Carter. Biden has signed 104 in less than 2 years and is on pace to bypass Trump. Many executive orders are yawners, some are not (closing pipelines and shutting down oil drilling for example). Trump signed, I think, 6 Covid related executive orders between March and October 2020. My contention is that these executive orders allowed the NIH and CDC to cozy up to the pharmaceutical companies and push the vaccines out without standard protocols of testing, studies, publishing results of trials, etc. I don’t believe the latter would have happened were it not for removing the obstacles that normally control how vaccines are brought to market. Just my opinion.

        God bless!

        • Gail Sheppard says

          When I said, “The President is only responsible for implementing and enforcing the laws written by Congress and, to that end, he appoints the heads of the federal agencies, but that’s it” it came from here. Should have provided the link.

          * * *

          Coming into office, Trump’s animosity toward the Big Pharma was clear because Americans were being ripped off by them. The pharmaceutical companies will not not negotiate pricing with the federal government, as they do with any outside agencies. Insulin was literally unaffordable for people on Medicaid and Medicare so they went without and that really got under Trump’s skin. To say he had an antagonist relationship with Big Pharma doesn’t even begin to describe it. He was never in bed with them, believe me.

          During the initial phases of COVID Trump learned quickly that there was a machine in place that stepped in when there was a healthcare crisis and the president was supposed to take a back seat. Remember the press conferences where he stood in the back and Fauci, who had spoken for the 6 presidents before him, took center stage? They jumped all over Trump when he closed our boarders to the Chinese saying he was a xenophobe when the reality was much more straightforward: How dare he do anything without the approval of the healthcare “experts.” He was put in his place and it was scary to watch. I remember thinking, “Who are these people?” It looked as if they had been preparing for this role for years, which later proved to be true.

          Trump’s “ah ha” moment with the NIH came when Pompeo discovered that the NIH was funding the Wuhan lab.

          NIH is funded by China and investors like Gates. They don’t answer to the president.

          In 2002, the Gates purchased shares in nine big pharmaceutical companies. Fast forward to 2020, and we read the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation teamed up with 16 pharmaceutical companies and I’m sure you’ll recognize the names: AstraZeneca, Bayer, bioMérieux, Boehringer Ingelheim, Bristol Myers Squibb, Eisai, Eli Lilly, Gilead, GSK, Johnson & Johnson, Merck & Co., Merck KGaA, Novartis, Pfizer, Roche and Sanofi.

          Ongoing was Gates relationship with Fauci and the NIH. Gates and Fauci have collaborated over the course of decades. The two spoke “regularly since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, discussing topics like vaccine development and how to address the evolution of coronavirus variants. . . The Gates Foundation’s team of researchers regularly shared information with Fauci, and vice versa, Gates added in an October 2021 interview on CNBC’s “Squawk Box.”

          Trump didn’t encourage that. Gates PLANNED the pandemic and Fauci was his right hand man.

          The FDA and CDC are sister agencies within the Department of Health and Human Services. There is a revolving door between the CDC and the FDA and the FDA and the pharmaceutical industry. As an example, among 55 people who worked as haematology-oncology medical reviewers for the FDA from 2001 to 2010, 27 continued in their roles at the FDA, two people worked at the FDA but held other appointments, and 15 left the FDA to work with or consult for the biopharmaceutical industry. It’s part of the career path at the FDA.
          RE: “My contention is that these executive orders allowed the NIH and CDC to cozy up to the pharmaceutical companies and push the vaccines out without standard protocols of testing, studies, publishing results of trials, etc.: They were already cozy. Below is the most blatant example of them hanging together under the most bizarre circumstances against Trump:

          Trump was a strong proponent of “Right to Try.”  Right-to-try laws are U.S. state laws and a federal law that were created with the intent of allowing terminally ill patients access to experimental therapies (drugs, biologics, devices) that have completed Phase I testing but have not been approved by the FDA. 

          There were many critics, however.  The FDA being the most vocal.  Bioethicist, medical and health experts worried that,  “If the laws were to grant patients access to unapproved drugs, they could hasten death or cause increased suffering.”  And these were (onesie-twosie) patients who were fully informed and had exhausted all other medical avenues.

          The irony is that the FDA, and the same bioethicists, medical and health experts who complained about Right-to-Try had no compunction against thrusting experimental “vaccines” on an entire nation, threatening to bounce our military and federal employees out of their jobs if they refused.  Nobody said: “If the laws were to grant patients access to unapproved drugs, they could hasten death or cause increased suffering.” No interest in testing older, safer drugs that were proven to work for the people who were able to get them.

          Yep, these organizations are all on the same page and they all hate Trump. It’s hard to fathom how corrupt they are.
