FDA Blockade: Feds Try To Withhold 55,000 Pages On Vaccine From Public

(Republican Party News) – Just weeks after a federal judge issued an order for the Food and Drug Administration to release information to Americans that it relied upon when the agency approved Pfizer’s coronavirus vaccine, it seems that both the FDA and Pfizer are balking.

According to WND, Aaron Siri, the attorney who represents the group who sued to have the 450,000 pages of data published, stated that the FDA is now objecting to a timetable that calls for an accelerated publication schedule which is set to take effect on March 1, according to a post from Wednesday that was published on his Substack.

“Siri said the FDA — which had initially called for publishing 500 pages a month and been told to hit the level of 55,000 pages a month — wants to delay the start of that until May 1,” the report said.

The plan that the FDA came up with would take 76 years, yes you read that right, in order to produce the requested records. The revised plan that the court ordered the agency to adopt would end up getting the information released over the course of eight months.

“[A]ll of this insanity is simply in response to an attempt to obtain some basic transparency,” Siri went on to write. “This should again bring into sharp focus why the government should never coerce or mandate anyone to get an unwanted medical product or procedure.”

And then, making things even more complicated, Pfizer also decided to step in and get involved.

“Pfizer supports the public disclosure of the vast majority of this information to promote transparency and the public’s confidence in the vaccine, and Pfizer seeks to intervene for the limited purpose of ensuring that information that is exempt from disclosure under FOIA is not disclosed inappropriately,” the pharmaceutical company then stated in its motion.

“In light of FDA’s statements regarding its capacity to review the requested information at an increased pace, and this Court’s order to produce this information on an expedited basis, Pfizer seeks leave to intervene in this action for the limited purpose of ensuring that information exempt from disclosure under [the Freedom of Information Act] is adequately protected as FDA complies with this Court’s order,” the motion continued.

“[T]here is a risk that this matter could result in inadvertent disclosure of FOIA-protected material. Pfizer’s ability to protect its interests would be directly impaired if its trade secrets and other proprietary information were disclosed as a result of this action,” it then added.

The FDA then said in a court filing on Tuesday that it was absolutely okay with Pfizer’s review and welcomed it. Public Health and Medical Professionals for Transparency, which is the group that sued to get the information released in the first place, is opposed to this intervention.

“U.S. District Judge Mark Pittman of the Northern District of Texas, who ruled earlier this month that the FDA should move quickly to produce the documents, was to hold a hearing on Pfizer’s intervention on Friday, Reuters reported,” the WND report said.

Siri then stated that if Pfizer wins, the public will lose.

“Just look at this circus — the government mandates Pfizer’s product, gives it immunity for any safety or efficacy issues, promotes its product using taxpayer money, gives Pfizer over $17 billion and then uses taxpayers’ money to fight to avoid providing even the most basic level of transparency to the public,” the attorney said.

“In his ruling earlier this month, Pittman said the FDA’s initial plan, which would have taken until 2097 to produce all the documents requested, was not good enough,” the report said. “The judge quoted multiple precedents on the issue of the timely sharing of vital information.”

“‘Open government is fundamentally an American issue’ — it is neither a Republican nor a Democrat issue,” Pittman wrote, taking a quote from Republican Sen. John Cornyn of Texas.

“As James Madison wrote, ‘[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,'” the judge continued.

“John F. Kennedy likewise recognized that ‘a nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people.’ And, particularly appropriate in this case, John McCain (correctly) noted that ‘[e]xcessive administrative secrecy… feeds conspiracy theories and reduces the public’s confidence in the government,'” he added.

Pittman stated that he realized his timetable that he ordered would be a bit of a challenge for the FDA, but stated that the “Court concludes that this FOIA request is of paramount public importance.”

Taking a comment from a past ruling that “[S]tale information is of little value,” he went on to write that “the expeditious completion of Plaintiff’s request is not only practicable, but necessary.”

The judge then said that “the production rate, as detailed below, appropriately balances the need for unprecedented urgency in processing this request with the FDA’s concerns regarding the burdens of production.”

This isn’t the only shady business the FDA has been involved with lately.

This report uncovered that the FDA has allegedly been colluding with the postal service to destroy shipments of Ivermectin, a medicine that is believed to help provide massive relief for folks suffering from the coronavirus.

“According to letters from the FDA being circulated on social media, the agency blocked shipments of Ivermectin from reaching their intended recipients as they arrived at ports of entry,” the report said.

“A shipment addressed to you from a foreign country is being held by the post office at the request of the US Food and Drug Administration,” says one letter that was shared by Aaron Siri.

The letter then goes on to say that the package, which contained 200 tablets of “Iverheal Ivermectin tablets” was intercepted at JFK Airport Port of Entry on November 9, 2021.

“In another letter, the FDA revealed they intercepted a package containing 300 tablets of ‘Iverpac12’ in August, which they said were ‘subject to refusal of admission into the United States and are subject to administrative destruction,'” the report continued.

But yet the FDA is all on board with vaccines?

Nothing fishy about that at all, right?
