The ‘Fact-Checkers’ Have Been Caught Red-Handed Lying for Pfizer

17 October 2022

3.3 MINS

Last week, the Daily Declaration reported on a Pfizer executive’s admission that her company never tested whether its mRNA product could stop transmission of Covid-19 before putting it to market.

The bombshell admission contradicted earlier assurances that if a person took Pfizer’s mNRA injections, they would be keeping others in the community safe.

Soon after Pfizer’s revelation, ‘fact checkers’ in the legacy media published puff pieces in defence of the pharmaceutical giant. In doing so, they brazenly misconstrued the public criticisms that Pfizer faced this week.

In a ‘fact check’ that has been roundly mocked on social media, the Associated Press ruled that the recent criticisms against Pfizer were “missing context”. The context the AP went on to provide was that “Pfizer never claimed to have studied the issue before the vaccine’s market release”.

However, critics of Pfizer — including the Daily Declaration — never accused Pfizer on that point.

The criticism Pfizer faced this week was for its repeated assurances that the mRNA product stops transmission of Covid-19. Public health figures have come under fire for the same reason.

In other words, the scandal is that Pfizer made its many public assurances in the absence of any data. The scandal went deeper when governments repeated those assurances and forced hundreds of millions of their citizens to take a product under duress and in the absence of genuine informed consent.

Every step of the way, it was implied to a believing public that, by taking Pfizer’s drug, individuals would be safe from Covid-19 and no longer be able to spread it to others.

Proof that Pfizer Claimed Its Injection Prevents Transmission

Proof that Pfizer claimed its mRNA product will stop transmission of the virus is still available widely online.

In January 2021, Pfizer tweeted that “the ability to vaccinate at speed to gain herd immunity and stop transmission is our highest priority”.

When Pfizer’s injectable gained FDA emergency approval, the company tweeted that the product was approved on the basis that it could “prevent COVID-19 in ages 16+”.

In a briefing document provided to the FDA, Pfizer stated that they had sought FDA approval “for an investigational COVID-19 vaccine (BNT162b2) intended to prevent COVID-19”. Pfizer repeated this language in the article, a second time clearly stating their drug’s purpose was “for active immunization for the prevention of COVID-19”.

In April 2021, Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla boasted about an “updated analysis” showing that his company’s “COVID-19 vaccine was 100% effective in preventing #COVID19 cases in South Africa” — which by definition would mean it also prevents transmission.

As recently as May of this year, Bourla said at a World Economic Forum event,

“You vaccinate, not only for yourself. You vaccinate also to protect society and particularly to protect those that you love the most.”

Proof that Public Figures Claimed the Injection Stops Transmission

It was not just Pfizer claiming that the mRNA injectables would stop transmission — but also a host of the most trusted public figures, beginning in the United States.

“Everyone who takes the vaccine is not just protecting themselves but reducing their transmission to other people,” Bill Gates said in January 2021.

In March 2021, Rochelle Walensky, director of the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) said on live TV,

“Our data from the CDC today suggests that vaccinated people do not carry the virus, don’t get sick. It’s not just in the clinical trials but it’s also in real-world data.”

In May of the same year, when almost half of Americans had taken a first dose, three more such claims were made.

The first was by Anthony Fauci, director of the NAIAD (National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases), who assured Americans, “when people are vaccinated, they can feel safe that they are not going to get infected,” — a claim presupposing that transmission would also be prevented.

The second was from President Joe Biden, who clearly implied that two mRNA injections made the recipient unable to pass on the virus. “Fully vaccinated people are at a very, very low risk of getting Covid-19,” he said at a press conference. “Therefore, if you’ve been fully vaccinated, you no longer need to wear a mask.”

The third was Rochelle Walensky, who made a similar remark:

“Anyone who is fully vaccinated can participate in indoor and outdoor activities, large or small, without wearing a mask or physical distancing.”

The following month, Fauci was emphatic that the mRNA products stop transmission. He said,

“We have all the vaccines we need. We just need our people to take it, for their own protection, for the protection of their family, but also to break the chain of transmission… You want to be a dead end to the virus, so when the virus gets to you, you stop it.”

The Associated Press has been caught red-handed lying for Pfizer. To what end? Trust in public health has been decimated over the last two years.

The legacy media lying for Big Pharma can only make this crisis worse.

    Thanks Karl , it is most needful for the Fact Checkers to be investigated so that their checking gets tested and truth revealed …

    Perhaps one truth is that by the time the “ truth “ about the past 3 years is investigated it will be too late for those responsible to be held accountable but then again….?
    I’m kinda getting over my prayer for God to show mercy to this Nation which I love and moving more toward praying for justice…of the kind that only God can provide.
    Thank you Kurt and may God continue to bless you and those you love.
