Immunity and Impunity: Corruption in the State‐Pharma Nexus

Crime sceneNOTE: Interesting look at the state-pharma connection from Australia - which is taking lessons from America.  The article examines corruption within the state‐corporate nexus as it relates to vaccines and the ‘pharmaindustry’; that is, the networks of industry, medical and political actors involved in their research, manufacturing, regulation and dissemination. It argues that the structure and conduct of these alliances operate as mechanisms of control, stymieing open debate and independent
inquiry around the safety and efficacy of vaccines.

Critical criminology repeatedly has drawn attention to the state-corporate nexus as a site of corruption and other forms of criminality, a scenario exacerbated by the intensification of neoliberalism in areas such as health. The state-pharmaceutical relationship, which increasingly influences health policy, is no exception. That is especially so when pharmaceutical products such as vaccines, a burgeoning sector of the industry, are mandated in direct violation of the principle of informed consent. Such policies have provoked suspicion and dissent as critics question the integrity of the state-pharma alliance and its impact on vaccine safety. However, rather than encouraging open debate, draconian modes of governance have been implemented to repress and silence any form of criticism, thereby protecting the activities of the state and pharmaceutical industry from independent scrutiny. The article examines this relationship in the context of recent legislation in Australia to intensify its mandatory regime around vaccines. It argues that attempts to undermine freedom of speech, and to systematically excoriate those who criticise or dissent from mandatory vaccine programs, function as a corrupting process and, by extension, serve to provoke the notion that corruption does indeed exist within the state-pharma alliance.

That's interesting because Gotzsche criticized the European Medicines Agency (EMA) for dealing unfairly with Dr. Louise Brinth, whom they accused of trespasses with regard to HPV vaccine adverse events similar to trespasses alleged against Wakefield. In her reply to these allegations Brinth responds :

"EMA writes:

'Overall, the case series reported by Brinth and colleagues (2015) is considered to represent a highly selected sample of patients, apparently chosen to fit a pre-specified hypothesis of vaccine-induced injury.'

This is the most serious allegation I have ever been presented with. I can only understand this statement and their use of the word 'apparently' as if they actually reveal that they just made an assumption. They made a guess. Contrary to this assumption made by the EMA, we did not select patients to fit a pre-specified hypothesis of vaccine-induced injury. We did not select patients based on symptoms in order to make sure that they would fit into a preexisting hypothesis. EMA suggests that we did. We did not. We did not ask all patients that we had referred with orthostatic intolerance whether they suspected that their symptoms were causally linked to the qHPV-vaccine. Only when the patients themselves mentioned that they had the suspicion we took it into consideration and discussed with the patient whether other possible eliciting factors could be recognized and whether it was relevant to report their symptoms as possible side effects to the qHPV-vaccine.

I do not mean to be patronizing but we urgently need to create common ground here. Therefore let us start out by clarifying that what I have described in my three papers are case series, that can be defined as:

A group or series of case reports involving patients who were given similar treatment. Reports of case series usually contain detailed information about the individual patients. This includes demographic information (for example, age, gender, ethnic origin) and information on diagnosis, treatment, response to treatment, and follow-up after treatment.

We published case series, which by nature do not do hypothesis-testing – and are prone to selection-bias. To minimize selection bias, we included all consecutively referred patients – with exception of the ones excluded due to exclusion criteria...."

Hi Francis Weibel,
While other things you mention are no doubt good things to do , I don't think that choosing on a country wide basis to make vaccines safer, to repeal mandates, or to study vaccine injury vulnerable populations requires any of these other things to happen.
We no longer have peanut butter in many schools, and it did not require us to fix the budget first.
I think the good people and politicians out there who care, need to actually understand about vaccine injury. Those trying to deliberately hide vaccine injury to promote an agenda need to be put in a position where denying it happens is no longer a viable option.

Francis Weibel

But, what about my question - thoughts on how to tackle the corporate behemoth?

In the U.S., I suggest advocating the following:

a) Fix our country's finances, i.e. balance the U.S. budget. Doing so provide our politicians the space needed to address vaccine issues.

b) Prudently reduce our worldwide military commitments. Since vaccine policy affects troop readiness, and the military is financially stressed, we cannot expect any changes to vaccine policy until military commitments are less or the military services are given more money.

c) Elect competent politicians who will comprehensively address these issues without the current drama we are now seeing in Washington. I cannot imagine Congress addressing vaccine issues in the current political climate.

I know this type of activity is dull and boring, but it needs to be part of our path forward.

Nothing cynical about it Bob , its spot on. Just the reality .

Gardasil , the rate of teenage pregnancies has collapsed (god bless em) , ovarian atrophy.
They are sterilising a generation right in front of our eyes.
Fluoride in the water . Fertility levels have collapsed all across the western world (documented).
Hormone disruptors and imitators everywhere in plastics and personal products.
Permanently the promotion of the "anti-family" thru the lamestream media .
Three generations fed on GM food will naturally be infertile (in tests with rats) .
Archie Kalokerinkos , every second child - see the quotes . Linus Pauling seconded it .
Maurice Hilleman and the famous "we imported Aids" comments. African Green Monkeys
Maurice Hilleman and the sv40 cancer virus given to 100m+ americans and who knows how many everywhere else. SIDS , Abortion (50 million blacks aborted in the US since 1970 - I understand the black population in the US is the only retreating population in the world), nssm200 , agenda21 .
We all know here, the likely cause of Autism , Alzheimers , ALS , MS , cancers , Hogkninsons , Parkinsons , Obesity , Anorexia , ME , the list goes on and on .
Its viruses & metals & deliberate contaminations in the vaccines (Muskovitz & Gatti)
They are attacking the masses everywhere along the lifecycle .

This is the most unlikeliest of accidents I have ever seen in all my days
(all this coming together like this).
They are endlessly rich but what they don't have is a personal safari park .
Africa has always been in the crosshairs .

Bob, the state‐corporate nexus is at the core of fascism. In fact fascism is defined by it. The criminal pharma-medical-govt cartel is nothing less than medical fascism. Pharma and their govt servants are making huge money by crippling and exterminating millions of innocent children. They target US equally to Africa.

I think they are much more interested in immediate profiteering than the long term -they are going to break our national economies in not very long. As to tactics: everyone has to find their own ways of protesting and resisting.

@Bob and @John

- I see your point - of course disabled and injured children/adults would be less likely to reproduce. Seems like it would be a limiting strategy, though, for Pharma. If each subsequent generation has fewer children (due to death, injury, disability), the market for vaccines and pharmaceuticals would eventually dry up.

- But, what about my question - thoughts on how to tackle the corporate behemoth?

@ Aimee

"Although vaccines do result in death at times, they are far more likely to result in injury and disability (which wouldn't further a population control agenda). It seems with mandatory vaccines we end up with more disabled children and adults, not fewer people overall"

Just speaking from my own .. admittedly limited experience .. our first child was a healthy girl who inexplicably developed Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) at age 4 .. requiring 6 to 8 weeks in hospital .. eventual surgical removal of her spleen. Having been told by every doctor we consulted .. her ITP was truly bizarre .. the "idiopathic" meaning the medical profession were "idiots" for not knowing what caused her condition. We had no more children after this experience because we had been told the ITP was most likely "genetic" somehow .. so we had two children instead of the three I had always anticipated having.

Approximately 30 something years later .. our third grandson was diagnosed with autism .. another disorder we had never heard of before .. and .. with access to the net .. I soon learned that ITP is no longer considered Idiopathic .. now listed as a possible adverse effect to DPT/MMR .. which was found only because so many veterans suffered thrombocytopenic purura after receiving numerous vaccines prior to deployment.

Our third grandson .. now eight-teen .. will NEVER marry nor have children of his own.

So .. yes ... in my cynical opinion .. population control .. whether or not the primary goal of vaccines ... is none-the-less .. in so many ways .. contributing to LESS POPULATION.

@Richard Milner -
It greatly surprises me to hear that Peter Gotzsche hasn't made the connection to vaccines. I know that he has publicly decried the flu vaccine as totally ineffective. I wonder when you made contact with him, and if he has shifted his beliefs by now?

Richard P. Milner

I contacted Dr. Peter Gotzsche re his book, and suggested he look into vaccines. He answered that Dr. Wakefield was to blame for impugning them with falsified data. When I contested this view and suggested he view our video, "Haley vs Offit: A Virtual Debate About Vaccines, The Greatest Medical Controversy of Our Time," he stopped the communication.

Nonetheless, he has written an important book. Ultimately timid and restricted though it is.

My own view is that when it comes to the pharmaceutical industry the drive is for wealth, power, influence, captive markets - but in the medium term the program will contribute to depopulation. Many of us now have children who will not have children, and the industry just wants more.

Aimee Doyle

@Bob

A little doubtful about your "mandatory vaccines as global population control" theory. Although vaccines do result in death at times, they are far more likely to result in injury and disability (which wouldn't further a population control agenda). It seems with mandatory vaccines we end up with more disabled children and adults, not fewer people overall. So I'm not sure how you make that connection.

I agree with you about mandatory vaccines benefiting vaccine companies specifically and the pharmaceutical industry more generally.

It's probably just me being my cynical self ... but ... the .. "corruption within the state‐corporate nexus as it relates to vaccines and the ‘pharmaindustry’" .. is many faceted. Consider ... just three examples .. of who benefits most from that "state-corporate nexus":

#1 The vaccine industry corporations .. obviously enjoys extremely lucrative financial rewards for each and every vaccine "recommended and approved" by the other half of their nexus .. the State.

#2 The entire "pharmaindustry" .. obviously enjoys extremely lucrative financial rewards for each and every vaccine .. resulting in .. life-long as well as life-threatening .. chronic autoimmune disorders .. such as .. asthma, allergies, juvenile type diabetes, on and on ,, which were far less common in all previous ... LESS VACCINATED GENERATIONS.

Paddy Rawlinson should connect with Dr. Peter Gotzsche, head of the Nordic Cochrane Center. Gotzsche authored this important book in 2013: "Deadly Medicines and Organised Crime: How Big Pharma has Corrupted Healthcare". In the forward, Richard Smith, former editor of the BMJ, characterizes the features of organized crime, including extortion, fraud, federal drug offences, bribery, embezzlement, obstruction of justice obstruction of law enforcement, tampering with witnesses and political corruption. Gotzsche's book details how each of these crimes are committed by Big Pharma.

With vaccines, Big Pharma either provides no clinical studies or makes a mockery of them by using toxic (e.g. aluminum) placebos instead of benign saline placebos. In general medicine and in pyschiatry, there are more clinical trials, but Gotzsche describes the sordid underbelly of this corrupt research that allows conventional medicines to be approved that provide no benefit and massive harm.

In 2015, Gotzsche wrote another book aimed at psychiatry: "Deadly Psychiatry and Organized Denial". In his book, he claims that psychiatric drugs are the third leading cause of death, after heart disease and cancer. Gotzsche asserts that we should reduce psychiatric medicine treatment by 98% so that we can improve world health.

Since many children diagnosed on the spectrum or with other vaccine injury are lied to by their doctors who claim they have a chemical imbalance in their brain and are then recommended to take these toxic psychiatric medications, we see just how perverse the world of Big Pharma truly is. Vaccinate to injure, lie about the result, force the parents to give children psychiatric medications for "treatment", and soon you have a disabled person who is an annuity to Big Pharma until their early death.

We need more truthsayers like Paddy Rawlinson and Dr. Peter Gotzsche.

There is a huge developing story the lamestream is very effectively managing occurring in the far EAST with sanofi's Dengvaxia vaccine. The are countless articles available like this , talking of the many injuries and class action lawsuits and the like .

Even the good old WHO are diving for cover. It wasn't us , it was Bill Gates\GAVI.
Don't blame Bill Gates for everything ! nobody is all good or all evil , its more complicated than that.

go Trump

Until something changes, the New World Order plan will be to control the world with vaccines.

The goal is a door to door mandate program for those who will not follow the NWO party line. The parents will then spend their last dollar for decades trying to undo what they have done.
