Examining RFK Jr.'s claim that the CDC “Owns over 20 vaccine patents.”
NOTE: Thanks to Ginger Taylor for writing this informative piece, published on GreenMedInfo. Read the full post here.
Mr. Kennedy is in very safe territory by reporting that the CDC has over 20 patents that create vast, undisclosed conflicts of interests in vaccine safety.
This past week, President-Elect Trump invited Robert F. Kennedy Jr. to discuss Mr. Kennedy leading a vaccine safety commission. The mainstream media coverage of the meeting was widespread and furious.
The vaccine industry and its media lap dogs do not want their corruption exposed in any official forum, and they have pointed their fury at Mr. Trump and Mr. Kennedy.
We have seen a great deal of media on Kennedy and his vaccine safety and corruption claims in the last week. The nice thing about that is this - because he has been in the mercury fight for so long, and started investigating the claims of moms of vaccine injured children more than a decade ago, his coverage has returned the spotlight to the corruption that was uncovered in the early days of the realization that the vaccine program was hurting our kids.
One of these old pieces of information that has made its way back into the discussion because of Mr. Kennedy's media attention is the claim that, “The CDC owns over 20 vaccines patents.”
My vaccine safety and corruption research began shortly after my son was vaccine injured in 2003, and I have heard this claim circulated since I began advocacy in this arena, but I have never seen any evidence for this claim.
In 2003, UPI reporter Mark Benjamin wrote an in depth piece on the conflicts of interest (COI) in vaccine safety entitled, “UPI Investigates: The vaccine conflict.” We have Mr. Benjamin to thank for bringing the patents and COIs held by the members of the CDC Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, including Dr. Paul Offit, to the public's attention, and for documenting the early years of Offit's increasingly absurd claims. In this article, Offit asserts that holding vaccine patents, being funded by Merck and having Merck buy and distribute, to physicians, his book extolling the virtues of vaccines, does not compromise his objectivity as a member of the committee that determines what is and is not sound vaccine practice:

Any update on this since 2017?

Armed with this possible smoking gun revelation, how do we go about showing there are actual funds from these patents being transferred to the CDC proving the conflict of interest? Would this go anywhere? Look what happened with the Thompson revelation - nothing! The implications of how pervasive the corruption has become and how much power Big Pharma wields over our representatives is mind boggling. I'd like to urge us all to become more vocal, more visible and more demanding in bringing the CDC to justice, but unfortunately - and this is not wishful thinking - it might take an extraordinary event such as a beloved entertainment celebrity dying from a flu shot to bring the gravity of this issue to the attention of the average American citizen.

Who could have ever imagined Hg-enocide could be both privatised and so profitable .
They have created a wonderful situation for themselves but when it collapses these rats are going to get hurt . Paul Offit must really struggle to sleep at night these times .

Saw an interesting quote:
Upton Sinclair, the Pulitzer Prize winning writer, activist, and muckraking journalist who shocked America into passing the 1906 Pure Food and Drug Act and Meat Inspection Act . . .:
"It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it."

Does CDC actually profit from those patents? One possible (and, in the case of a government entity, rather likely) use of a patent is to protect the patented intellectual property from for-profit use and to ensure that it remains freely available.

This info I find quite interesting as a medical research company. It makes sense of my recent interaction with the CDC in regards to the Zika virus. I had requested information from the CDC on several occasions with no response, using e-mail and voice mail. I final sent an inquiry through the White House. I received a response shortly there after. I had requested information regarding certain alleles on the organism. With that information I stated we could develop a vaccine in under 6 months.
They response was " we are currently not collecting that data." This was during the time that the White House had requested Billions for research and development of a vaccine. My projected budget had been 2.5 million to complete a SAFE vaccine with no pathogen, animal cell matter, and negative adverse reactions.

Mr Kennedy` and Mr Trump have a chance to turn it all around will they, this remains to be seen. If pharma is taken out I will be delighted.
Life is a lie a rich mans lie, that we have little say in.
Here's a toast to Kennedy and Trump et-al.

I don't agree with Trump on many policy issues, but THIS decision is awesome and helps add to my respect for this man. I hope the truth about vaccines is FINALLY dealt with by the mainstream media in an objective and honest manner!

They would have done better to just keep quiet. Attacking Trump is like trying to put out a fire with gasoline. He will not back down.
