WASHINGTON — “A popular government without popular information or the means of acquiring it is but a prologue to a farce or a tragedy, or perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance: And a people who mean to be their own Governors, must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives.”—James Madison
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) originally didn’t want to fully release documents related to the approval process of the Pfizer Comirnaty “vaccine” until 2076. Then, the FDA doubled down asking until 2096. The FDA didn’t even show up for the first day of oral arguments on Dec. 14.
On Thursday, U.S. District Judge Mark T. Pittman didn’t buy the FDA’s arguments in his Jan. 6 ruling which will require those documents to be fully released this year.
“Accordingly, the Court concludes that this FOIA request is of paramount public importance,” Pittman wrote in his ruling.
Aaron Siri, a lawyer representing the Public Health and Medical Professionals for Transparency (PHMPT) in its Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) case against the FDA, reported that Pittman “soundly rejected the FDA’s request and ordered the FDA to produce all the data at a clip of 55,000 pages per month,” which Siri called “a great win for transparency and removes one of the strangleholds federal “health” authorities have had on the data needed for independent scientists to offer solutions and address serious issues with the current vaccine program.”
PHMPT originally submitted a FOIA request to the FDA last summer for “all data and information” related to adverse events and safety and effectiveness of the Pfizer Comirnaty shot. The FDA approved Comirnaty last August, but it is not in use with only Emergency Use Authorization experimental jabs currently available.
The FDA was requesting to produce 500 pages per month. Tyler Durden reported for Zero Hedge: “Assuming there are roughly 450,000 pages, that means it will take just over eight months for the world to see what’s under the hood.”
“No person should ever be coerced to engage in an unwanted medical procedure,” Siri wrote. “And while it is bad enough the government violated this basic liberty right by mandating the COVID-19 vaccine, the government also wanted to hide the data by waiting to fully produce what it relied upon to license this product until almost every American alive today is dead. That form of governance is destructive to liberty and antithetical to the openness required in a democratic society.”
Pittman’s order allows the FDA to produce the over 12,000 pages it previously said it could by Jan. 31 while it will have produce “55,000 pages every 30 days” thereafter. PHMPT’s legal team and the FDA will need to submit a status report by April 1 and then every 90 days.
“To the extent the FDA asserts any privilege, exemption, or exclusion as to any responsive record or portion thereof, FDA shall, concurrent with each production required by this Order, produce a redacted version of the record, redacting only those portions as to which privilege, exemption, or exclusion is asserted,” the ruling states.
PHMPT has posted an updated page with documents already released. The most recent release of documents came on Dec. 30.
