Pfizer and Moderna expected to earn $32 billion from 2021 sales of their coronavirus vaccines Tuesday, December 22, 2020 by: Ramon Tomey (Natural News) Wall Street analysts have surmised that drugmakers Pfizer and Moderna will earn combined profits of about $32 billion in 2021. Investment bank Morgan Stanley projected that Pfizer’s COVID-19 jab is expected to bring in $19 billion next year. Meanwhile, Goldman Sachs remarked that Moderna will rake in $13.2 billion in earnings come from its Wuhan coronavirus vaccine. This comes in stark contrast to pharmaceutical firms Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca, who have vowed to offer their Wuhan coronavirus vaccines at no profit once they are approved for emergency use. The vaccine candidates from AstraZeneca and J&J are currently undergoing trials as of writing. The messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccines from Pfizer and its German partner BioNTech and Moderna both reported more than 90 percent efficacy rates in clinical trials. However, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorized the Pfizer/BioNTech jab for emergency use Dec. 11. A panel consisting of 23 independent scientists voted in favor of the BNT162b2 jab and recommended it to the FDA the day before, following long and drawn-out talks over its safety. FDA Commissioner Stephen Hahn said regarding the Pfizer/BioNTech jab’s approval: “The FDA’s authorization … of the first COVID-19 vaccine is a significant milestone in battling this devastating pandemic. The tireless work to develop a new vaccine to prevent this … disease in an expedited timeframe after its emergence is a true testament to scientific innovation and public-private collaboration worldwide.” Prior to the FDA, the United Kingdom’s Medicine and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) gave its authorization for the BNT162b2 jab Dec. 2 – which was subsequently rolled out to the population Dec. 8. Pfizer stocks were barely affected despite its Wuhan coronavirus vaccine candidate gaining approval due to its size: BNT162b2 sales represent a small slice of its overall revenue. It also promised to share half of its profits to BioNTech, which Pfizer collaborated with to develop the vaccine. Meanwhile, the German firm’s shares listed in the U.S. spiked 300 percent this year following the announcement of its vaccine showing promise. Moderna stocks likewise benefited from its promising vaccine, shooting up 700 percent from the start of the year. The mRNA vaccines by Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna appear to bypass safety in the name of profit However, regulators have overlooked the safety risks that come with rushing the development of vaccines – as in the case of the Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna vaccine candidates. MailOnline reported Dec. 8 that four volunteers in Pfizer’s U.S. trials developed Bell’s palsy, a kind of facial paralysis, after receiving the BNT162b2 jab. The volunteers eventually recovered from the condition in a span of three to 21 days. Less than 0.5 percent of trial participants experienced serious side effects – including the four cases of Bell’s palsy, according to the FDA. The U.S. regulator denied that the vaccine directly caused the paralysis, but promised to observe other cases closely and warned doctors to watch out for the side effect in vaccinated individuals. The U.K. also saw adverse reactions to the BNT162b2 vaccine during the country’s actual immunization program. Two workers under the National Health Service (NHS) experienced “anaphylactoid reactions” after receiving the COVID-19 jab, incidentally on the first day of the vaccine’s rollout. The reported adverse reactions prompted the MHRA to warn those with a “history of a significant reaction” to medicines, foods or vaccines against taking the coronavirus shot. (Related: UK begins mass vaccination program with Pfizer, starting with the elderly and healthcare workers.) The NHS previously warned against giving the Pfizer/BioNTech jab to pregnant and lactating women, as its effects on fertility are still “unknown.” While Moderna’s coronavirus vaccine candidate has not yet obtained emergency use approval, there are still concerns over its potential risks. The Massachussetts-based drugmaker admitted that its mRNA-1273 vaccine caused “grade 3 systemic symptoms” that require medical intervention in some volunteers. A report by Children’s Health Defense elaborated that three volunteers who joined Moderna’s trials developed “serious adverse events” within 43 days after being vaccinated. (Related: Moderna admits that some components of mRNA tech used in vaccines can cause “significant adverse events”.)

Equal Employment Opportunity Commission says employers can FORCE employees to submit to dangerous coronavirus vaccines Tuesday, December 22, 2020 by: Lance D Johnson (Natural News) In a perverted twist of irony, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has decided to go against their own standards and endorse both discrimination and segregation in the workplace. The EEOC just ruled that employers have the power to bar unvaccinated employees from the workplace. The EEOC is making a mockery of their own mission and legal responsibilities: “equal employment opportunity.” The EEOC is responsible for enforcing federal laws that make it illegal to discriminate against a job applicant or an employee based on a person’s, race, color, sex (including pregnancy, transgender status, and sexual orientation), national origin, age (40 or older), RELIGION, DISABILITY or GENETIC INFORMATION. EEOC violates the Constitution, conspires with private industry to deprive individuals of their inherent rights Every inoculation that has ever been developed is ultimately a personal medical decision, and coercion is not informed consent. A person does not have to belong to an organized religion in order to have their own thoughts, beliefs, reservations or moral objections to any vaccination. These personal religious beliefs are rights protected by the First Amendment of the US Constitution. As the EEOC (a federal organization) conspires with private industry to subject people to medical experiments against their will, the EEOC has violated basic human rights, medical privacy laws and First Amendment protections bestowed in the US Constitution. No one owes their employer a reason for their conscientious beliefs nor do they have to explain why they choose a more reasonable path for individual broad-spectrum immunity. Every vaccine presents a risk of disability or death, and no employer has supreme authority to compel this risk on any individual. If the EEOC is supposed to protect people with disabilities, then why are they encouraging employers to discriminate against employees who could already be vaccine injured, disabled or have a medical history of allergic reactions, seizures or nervous system disorders that are the direct result of previous vaccinations? The newest inoculations for covid-19 are not traditional vaccines, either. These inoculations introduce messenger RNA into the recipient, changing the way their cells create proteins and altering the way their immune system recognizes the properties of viruses. If the EEOC is supposed to protect people from discrimination against their GENETIC INFORMATION, then why are they pushing employers to subject their employees to inoculations that deliberately manipulate their genetic information? EEOC now poses a direct threat to individual equality, opportunity, liberty, safety and health The EEOC is so arrogant; they ruled that employers are “required” to ensure a safe workplace by mandating that all their employees take inoculations if the employer believes an individual poses a “direct threat” to the health or safety of others in the workplace.” In real terms, the EEOC is empowering employers across the nation to engage in an unconstitutional breach of civil liberties to unlawfully discriminate against employees’ private medical decisions and religious beliefs. The EEOC is allowing employers to be a “direct threat” to individuals, putting their life and health in jeopardy to a system of “immunization” that is replete with scientific fraud and medical error. The EEOC will defend people who feel discriminated in regards to their gender identity but will dismiss any case of employer abuse that forces medical decisions against the will of the employee. The EEOC is perfectly fine with employers that threaten the livelihood, medical privacy and safety of individuals, as long as it’s done under the premise of “workplace safety.” The EEOC specifically took aim at the Americans with Disabilities Act, which limits an employer’s ability to mandate that their workers get a medical examination. The EEOC ruled that vaccination is not a medical exam, so employers can allegedly compel their employees to provide proof of inoculation or be terminated. The EEOC supports segregation and forced isolation as an alternative way to handle people who do not consent to vaccination. They wrote that an employee who does not consent to vaccination must beg for a disability exemption granted under the Americans with Disabilities Act or Title VII. According to the EEOC, the employer can then force this individual out of the workplace, quarantining the individual indefinitely in their home to complete the work. If the work cannot be done remotely, then the employer has the power to terminate the individual, with no legal repercussions for threatening, coercing, segregating and discriminating that worker. The EEOC wrote that the employer then has the “right under employment law to exclude them from physically entering the workplace.” Get ready to fight for your rights because the government and the law no longer cares to defend them!

Discussing vaccine dangers on Twitter is now prohibited, so how will people learn the truth about COVID-19 vaccine side effects? Tuesday, December 22, 2020 by: Ethan Huff (Natural News) On Dec. 16, just a few days after President Donald Trump’s “Operation Warp Speed” Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines were unveiled and unleashed, Twitter made an announcement that it has begun to “prioritize the removal of the most harmful misleading information” about the dangers and ineffectiveness of the jabs. In addition to labeling tweets “that contain potentially misleading information about the vaccines,” Twitter has decided to go a step further by actively removing all content from the platform that in any way calls into question Trump’s “coof” inoculations. “In the context of a global pandemic, vaccine misinformation presents a significant and growing public health challenge – and we all have a role to play,” Twitter contends. “We are focused on mitigating misleading information that presents the biggest potential harm to people’s health and wellbeing. Twitter has an important role to play as a place for good faith public debate and discussion around these critical public health matters.” Twitter’s official policy prior to Dec. 16 included the removal of all tweets that include “false or misleading” information about: • The “nature” of COVID-19, including how it supposedly spreads within communities • The safety and / or efficacy of “preventative measures, treatments, or other precautions to mitigate or treat the disease • Official government “regulations, restrictions, or exemptions pertaining to health advisories;” and • The “prevalence or risk of infection or death” As of Dec. 16, however, Twitter will now be removing tweets that claim COVID-19 vaccines are being “used to intentionally harm … or control populations,” along with any statements that “invoke a deliberate conspiracy.” Twitter also now has a no-tolerance policy for statements about the COVID-19 vaccine that has been “widely debunked,” such as that a person might experience “adverse impacts or effects” following vaccination. Should a Twitter user claim that “COVID-19 is not real or not serious, and therefore … vaccinations are unnecessary,” this, too, will be immediately removed from the platform as a “false claim.” Twitter, Facebook only allow content that promotes vaccines as safe and effective These changes are merely an extension of the ones Twitter implemented last year, which prohibit the spread of “misinformation” about vaccines. Only “approved” information about vaccines – basically anything that claims they are always safe and effective – is now allowed on Twitter. Anything else is medical heresy, and will not be tolerated. “Using a combination of technology and human review, we will begin enforcing this updated policy on December 21, and expanding our actions during the following weeks,” Twitter’s latest announcement indicates. “We will enforce this policy in close consultation with local, national and global public health authorities around the world, and will strive to be iterative and transparent in our approach.” From now on, the announcement concludes, Twitter will police its platform in such a way that people are able to find “credible health information” that has been verified by “public health experts.” Facebook made a similar announcement earlier in the month that “false claims” about COVID-19 will be removed in the event that Facebook employees decide they could cause “imminent physical harm.” Anyone suggesting that hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) may help to treat COVID-19 is now in violation of Facebook’s new “coof” policies, as are people who suggest that virus symptoms may be linked to 5G exposure. “The company removed 12 million posts as a result of this policy between March and October,” reported NBC News, which apparently thinks that Facebook is not doing enough to stamp out other information about vaccines in general that contradicts the official government narrative that all vaccines are safe and effective.

FDA approves genetically engineered pigs for food and medicine Tuesday, December 22, 2020 by: Lance D Johnson (Natural News) Genetically engineered pigs will soon be introduced into the American food supply. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) just approved the first-of-its-kind, intentional genomic alteration for domestic pigs. The experiment takes animal farming to an entirely new level, introducing genetic alterations that could cause genetic ripple effects for decades to come. The genetically engineered GalSafe pigs will also be slaughtered and used to create FDA-approved medications. Developers only need to seek FDA approval if they hope to use the genetically engineered pigs to create drugs, organs or implants for use in human medicine. This is the first intentional genomic alteration for a product with both food and medical uses. “Today’s first ever approval of an animal biotechnology product for both food and as a potential source for biomedical use represents a tremendous milestone for scientific innovation,” FDA Commissioner Stephen Hahn said in a statement. FDA unleashes genetically altered pigs into the food and medicine supply The company behind the genetic experiment is Revivicor. The company plans to develop the pigs, have them slaughtered, and then offer the meat for sale by mail order. Supermarkets will not be involved in the beginning rollout. Revivicor was started in 2003 by PPL Therapeutics, a UK company that helped clone the first animal, Dolly the Sheep. Now the company is looking to give the world its first genetically altered pig supply. They believe the alteration will change medicine for the better and allow people to enjoy pig meat without suffering from specific meat allergies. The scientists have genetically altered the animals so they no longer produce a specific kind of sugar on the surface of their cells. This sugar is allegedly the trigger that causes some people to have meat allergies. The scientists behind the genetic edit believe that these experimental pig cells can be used in organ replacement and skin grafting, too, without being rejected by the recipient’s immune system. These new pig tissues could be made into skin grafts, hernia repairs, heart valve replacements, or new tendons, as genetically modified pigs are incorporated into human DNA. What are the risks of merging genetically altered animals with humans? Cross-species procedures such as xenografts or xenotransplantation are often risky because the human recipient’s body may reject the foreign cells. One of the reasons why rejection rates are so high is because of the presence of the alpha-gal sugar that exists on the surface of these animal cells. The allergic reaction is initiated when a Lone Star tick transmits alpha-gal sugar into a person’s body. When that person eats red meats such as beef, pork or lamb, their immune system may reject the alpha-gal sugar in the meat, causing a mild to severe allergic reaction. The new FDA-approved GalSafe pig may reduce some of these reactions, and in medicine, these genetically altered cells may reduce the incidence of organ rejections. Steven Solomon, director of the FDA’s Center for Veterinary Medicine, was excited to approve the first genetic modification of an animal for both food and medicine, but did not elaborate on whether alpha-gal is the only source of organ rejection during procedures. Solomon did warn, “I think that people need to be careful. That’s why in part, it’s going to require further evaluation for xenotransplantation, xenograft, or the other activities by the medical products centers and FDA.” The FDA is also unsure if the genetically altered pigs could exacerbate the problem of antimicrobial resistance of bacteria in humans. It’s hard to know exactly how these intentional genetic alterations affects both humans and animals. The first use of these pig cells is already in a Phase 1 clinical trial. XenoTherapeutics wants to use the pig cells for the treatment of burn wounds. Revivicor believes these cells could also be used to make a safer version of heparin, a common blood thinner used as heart attack treatment and to prevent blood clots for certain surgeries.
