WASHINGTON — Early documents released by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) may show why the bureaucracy does not want to release documents related to the Pfizer jab.
Tyler Durden reported for Zero Hedge that over 160,000 adverse events and over 1,000 deaths were recorded after the first few months of the Pfizer shot rollout.
Those numbers come from some of the early documents released to the Public Health and Medical Professionals for Transparency (PHMPT) group that is in an ongoing legal battle for release of FDA documents it’s seeking through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.
So far, 22 documents of varying sizes have been released with the latest on Dec. 22. The FDA incredibly sought to have until 2076 to fully release documents which its since doubled down on, now asking for until 2096 for full release.
“The first tranche of documents revealed that, as of February 2021, when Pfizer’s shot was being rolled out worldwide on an emergency basis, the drugmaker had compiled more than 42K case reports detailing nearly 160K individual adverse reactions to the vaccine,” Durden wrote.
Durden added: “Keep in mind, these data were used by the FDA to declare the Pfizer jab safe, which it did for Americans aged 16 and older in August. It has since been approved for children as young as five, along with booster doses for people aged 16 and up as of last week.”
Meanwhile, the FDA didn’t even show up to a Dec. 14 court date when oral arguments began, according to lawyer Aaron Siri with Siri and Glimstad, which is representing PHMPT.
The FDA claimed COVID-19 “protocols” kept them from going to court, according to Siri, despite the FDA’s 98.8% compliance rate with Biden’s vax mandate. Despite claims of the shot’s effectiveness, the “FDA is apparently still scared. Its actions speak volumes and cast serious doubt on its words,” Siri wrote.
Siri noted that the legal battle continues with no decision made, and transcripts will be released from the Dec. 14 oral arguments. While the FDA was not present, its Department of Justice (DOJ) lawyer was in attendance.
“Regarding the hearing … the public will get to read the transcript when it is released, which we expect should be soon,” Siri wrote. “In the meantime, it is noteworthy that the DOJ attorney who appeared without an FDA representative effectively argued that the American people and the plaintiff should just trust the FDA that it will produce documents as fast as possible even though it has now been over 110 days since the request was made to the FDA and it has produced on average only ~29 pages per day. The FDA also continued to maintain that it does not want the Court to require it to produce at a rate faster than 500 pages per month as it continued to harp on Pfizer’s interests and its trade secrets, for the most part ignoring the interests of the American people.”
Siri added: “There is one point that is particularly noteworthy: Americans must routinely produce documents, pay fines, and otherwise expend resources to comply with the law. Courts don’t inquire as to the ability or financial resources to comply with the law — they must comply. In fact, it would be laughable if a billionaire defendant came before a court and claimed poverty to escape making a document production, but that is the FDA’s position. The Court, we hope, will do what it does with all parties: enter an order requiring the FDA to follow the law. If the FDA has an issue with doing so, it should take its complaint to Congress, not ask the Court to deviate from the law or give it any special accommodation from compliance with the laws that every other American must comply with.”
Siri is also a part of the legal battle to reinstate the stay on Biden’s vax mandate on employers with 100 or more employees.
The Liberty Loft reported this month that a federal appeals court lifted the stay on the mandate, but an appeal was filed with the Supreme Court.
Siri updated that appeal stating that his “filing asked the Supreme Court to correct the Sixth Circuit and reissue the stay. Justice (Brett) Kavanaugh has ordered OSHA to respond by December 30, 2021 and our petitioner to reply by January 3, 2022.”
“As of now, according to OSHA, employers have until January 10 to comply with weekly testing requirements for those employees who are not fully vaccinated. The hope is that the Supreme Court rules in advance of that date,” Siri added.
Oral arguments are set to begin on Jan. 7.
