  1. From the link: Approximately 70 military helicopters will fly through AVP’s airspace Saturday through Monday, the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport announced Friday in a Facebook post. According to the post: AVP officials were informed the helicopters will depart from the Rome, N.Y., area in small groups, continuing through AVP’s airspace to their final destination in the Philadelphia area. The times are unknown could vary each day. The public is advised that this is only an exercise and there is no need for concern. Interesting word that: 'concern.' CON-CERN. I've always thought of CERN as being nothing but a big CON!
  2. Pfizer accused of ‘bringing discredit’ on pharmaceutical industry after Covid social media posts Watchdog rules company breached regulatory code five times including promoting unlicensed medicines Camilla Turner, Sunday Political Editor 6 April 2024 • 4:55pm Credit: MARK LENNIHAN/AP Pfizer has been accused by the UK’s pharmaceutical watchdog of “bringing discredit” on the industry after senior executives used social media to promote an “unlicensed” Covid vaccine. The company has been found to have breached the regulatory code five times, which also includes making misleading claims, failing to maintain high standards and promoting unlicensed medicines. A ruling by the pharmaceutical watchdog, the Prescription Medicines Code of Practice Authority (PMCPA), relates to a complaint about a message posted on X, formerly known as Twitter, in November 2020 by senior Pfizer employees. The complaint raised concern about Pfizer’s “misuse of social media to misleadingly and illegally promote their Covid vaccine”, according to the ruling. They claimed that such “misbehaviour” on social media was “even more widespread” than they had thought and “extended right to the top of their UK operation”. ‘Unlicensed medicine proactively disseminated’ The complaint centred on a social media post on X by Dr Berkeley Phillips, the medical director of Pfizer UK. He shared a post from an employee of Pfizer in the US which said: “Our vaccine candidate is 95 per cent effective in preventing Covid-19, and 94 per cent effective in people over 65 years old. We will file all of our data with health authorities within days. Thank you to every volunteer in our trial, and to all who are tirelessly fighting this pandemic.” Four other Pfizer employees, including one “senior” colleague, published the same message. The PMCPA ruling noted that this message contained “limited” information about the vaccine’s efficacy, no safety information and no reference to adverse events. It went on to say that the social media post resulted in an “unlicensed medicine being proactively disseminated on Twitter to health professions and members of the public in the UK”. A Pfizer UK spokesman said that the company “fully recognises and accepts the issues highlighted by this PMCPA ruling”, adding that it is “deeply sorry”. They said: “Pfizer UK has a comprehensive policy on personal use of social media in relation to Pfizer’s business which prohibits colleagues from interacting with any social media related to Pfizer’s medicines and vaccines – backed by staff briefings and training. “The personal use of social media by UK pharmaceutical industry employees in relation to company business is a challenging area for pharmaceutical companies, in which we continue to take all of the appropriate steps that are reasonably expected of a pharmaceutical company.” As part of their response to the ruling, Pfizer said it had launched a review into its employees’ use of social media platforms to ensure compliance with their own rules as well as the regulatory code. ‘Accidental and unintentional’ It is the sixth time Pfizer has been reprimanded by the regulator over its promotion of the Covid-19 vaccine. One ruling by the watchdog, from November 2022, found that Pfizer’s chief executive made “misleading” statements about children’s vaccines. Following a complaint from the campaign group UsForThem, the PMCPA found that Pfizer had misled the public, made unsubstantiated claims and failed to present information in a balanced way. Three of the other Pfizer cases related to LinkedIn posts, one related one was about claims made in a press release and one was about posts on X. For the most recent series of breaches, Pfizer was charged administrative costs of £34,800. Ben Kingsley, the head of legal affairs at UsForThem, said: “It’s astonishing how many times Pfizer’s senior executives have been found guilty of serious regulatory offences – in this case including the most serious offence of all under the UK Code of Practice. “Yet the consequences for Pfizer and the individuals concerned continue to be derisory. This hopeless system of regulation for a multi-billion dollar life and death industry has become a sham, in dire need of reform.” Dr Phillips, the UK country medical director for Pfizer, said the social media post was “accidental and unintentional” adding: “That said, we immediately accepted the case ruling and do everything we can to ensure that our employees adhere to our strict social media policy and the industry Code of Practice when using their personal social media.” David Watson of the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry (ABPI) said that the code of practice, which is overseen by the PMCPA, sets “high standards for companies that reflect and go beyond UK law”. He added that cases that are found to have brought discredit on the industry are advertised in the medical, pharmaceutical, and nursing press.

This has been proven beyond any reasonable doubt. Everything, and I mean everything you were told by every official source, was a lie. I know this is a bold statement, but it is true. The point of the Plandemic was 2-fold: 1) It was giant experiment in conformity and obedience; in other words, how much did the fear-dial have to be turned up to achieve x-amount of behavioural change, and 2) To coerce you into taking the experimental gene-therapy drug they called the vaccine, the goal of which was also 2-fold i) massive, massive profits and ii) I believe, a gigantic experiment in itself to test this new technology and normalise mRNA drugs as 'vaccines' (Pfizer, Moderna products). The infection fatality rate of Covid was the same or lower than the flu (0.03-0.1) from the beginning (see Professor John Ioannidis, Stanford University). During that period, according to WHO data global flu deaths were just replaced by Covid deaths. This is proven beyond any doubt based on vast global data sets. The real excess deaths did not occur until after the vaccinations (also proven beyond doubt by the data kept by every major Government in the World). Just Read RFK's books: The Real Anthony Fauci, and it sequel, The Wuhan Coverup. There are dozens of excellent books now, there is no excuse for being uninformed.

These are now accepted worldwide, including by the WHO. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/36341800/ "The IFRs had a median of 0.034% (interquartile range (IQR) 0.013-0.056%) for the 0-59 years old population, and 0.095% (IQR 0.036-0.119%) for the 0-69 years old. The median IFR was 0.0003% at 0-19 years, 0.002% at 20-29 years, 0.011% at 30-39 years, 0.035% at 40-49 years, 0.123% at 50-59 years, and 0.506% at 60-69 years. IFR increases approximately 4 times every 10 years. Including data from another 9 countries with imputed age distribution of COVID-19 deaths yielded median IFR of 0.025-0.032% for 0-59 years and 0.063-0.082% for 0-69 years. Meta-regression analyses also suggested global IFR of 0.03% and 0.07%, respectively in these age groups. The current analysis suggests a much lower pre-vaccination IFR in non-elderly populations than previously suggested."

Big Pharma can grease hands across institutions to ensure the right justice is given. It’s not as if the controlled media will do anything.

Remember how they were shunned like lepers? Perhaps you were one of them. Perhaps you painted the cross on the door of friends or colleagues. Remember how anyone daring to raise questions was cancelled? Well, the truth is out now but articles like this come and go and the news media has moved on to something else. They lied to us again and again. A few people got very rich. Millions of people lost their jobs or businesses.

Comment by Marge Simpson. 6 hrs ago The use of social media, a sewer of junk, always undermines ethically run companies. Here those individuals should be sacked immediately. They know fully that only approved messages by the Marketing Departments can be shared if the use is approved internally. By are large pharma is very good on this, it’s the supplements industry which needs reigning in for false claims. Also for COVID false claims for for malaria frogs like hydroxychloroquine, to worm tablets like Ivermethacin to plasma treatments…. Did massive harm and of course Pfizer’s vaccine has saved millions of lives! Reply by Malcolm Loudon. 4 hrs ago Pfizer "ethically run". Do the tiniest bit of research. Google their fines for previous misconduct and perhaps look at their bovine viral diarhoea vaccine and bleeding calf syndrome. Better still look up who was in charge of that and where he is now. Reply by Violet Twigs. 4 hrs ago If you know how to say the words hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin, then you have done some research. For you to conclude in the way you have in your comment strongly suggests you are paid to make such remarks. Sorry Marge, I can come to no other conclusion. Comment by paul halsall. 6 hrs ago Read up on " The Cutter Incident" 1955 that should give everyone some idea how pharmaceutical companies get away with it? Comment by Dominic Metcalfe. 6 hrs ago This doesn’t surprise me. The backlash against these companies is growing. They are the tip of the spear of the new ‘technoutopia’ largely being ushered in without anyone having a say. (Just look how events during 2020 transpired to use the body as a means of control). It’s simply wicked. Comment by Peter Davis. 7 hrs ago It was picked up by the BBC, CNN and the like and printed as fact. This is part of the press release at the time: "The first primary objective analysis is based on 170 cases of COVID-19, as specified in the study protocol, of which 162 cases of COVID-19 were observed in the placebo group versus 8 cases in the BNT162b2 group. Efficacy was consistent across age, gender, race and ethnicity demographics. The observed efficacy in adults over 65 years of age was over 94%." No mention of how large different groups were. Apparently 43,000 people were observed, but no reference to age or sex or ethnicity. There is no reference to whether their final percentages are absolute or relative. Also, it is fairly obvious now that in the real world the figures were completely different and they should be hauled over the coals for that. Then there are the side-effects, where only low levels of fatigue and headaches are mentioned. We now know about many others. They were given a free rein by our government and other governments, but I would have thought that any decent lawyer could argue that if they did not lie then they deliberately misled government leaders. Comment by Tom Psmith. 7 hrs ago we need some old fashioned common sense here. if a company has paid one of the biggest fines ever for fraud we probably shouldn't trust them to be honest, have integrity & produce things we should risk putting in our body..
