In the news, we have seen an uptick in reports that financially interested physicians receive royalties from Big Pharma and complaints that this led to bias in COVID (mRNA) Vaccine efficacy. But several large pharmaceutical companies have been convicted of felonies for lying about drug efficacy. The younger generation is probably unaware, as the search engines have done a pretty good job scrubbing the data. The young are further taken down the rabbit hole by Grammy awards sponsored by Pfizer, a known, multiple convicted criminal felon company.

For example:

“The company paid a criminal fine of $1.195 billion. Pfizer also forfeited an additional $105 million. Bextra was withdrawn from the market in 2005. The Justice Department also said in 2009 that Pfizer paid $1 billion to resolve allegations of civil wrongdoing under theFalse Claims Act that the company illegally promoted Bextra and three other drugs: the antipsychotic Geodon, the antibiotic Zyvox and the anti-epileptic drug Lyrica.”

“The Pharmacia & Upjohn Company – a subsidiary of Pfizer – agreed to plead guilty to a felony violation of the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act for misbranding the painkiller Bextra “with the intent to defraud or mislead,” according to the Department of Justice.” (Read more.)

The youth are taught to worship financially interested doctors so long as these doctors are woke, have a lot of followers on social media, are against greenhouse gas, are pro-BLM, etc. But now, record numbers of healthy young adults in the USA and Canada are suffering health problems and dying from known side effects of mRNA. Hopefully, this article will help the younger generation turn from bureaucratic-infused cognitive dissonance towards a new age of educated enlightenment.

In the past, Agent Orange was said to be non-toxic to humans by the US government. In the same way, cigarettes were pedaled as healthy, and government-paid scientists pushed them as such. It wasn’t until recently that Phillip Morris and others were punished for pushing cigarettes as healthy. What gets ignored is that all of this was done with help from the U.S. government.

Financially Biased Experts in Medicine is Nothing New?

A politician or government scientist at the NIH helps you (buries opposition research, writes a peer review study praising your product, fights off FOIA requests for buried data about drug efficacy and safety, etc.), and the NIH or some Big Pharma head gets a job as the next head of the CDC or FDA. How is that even possible, as it looks so unfair and collusive? People like this would never be allowed to testify as unbiased witnesses in court. Yet, they defacto can direct public policy and force vaccines on military personnel and public school kids. This is power only members of the German Third Reich wielded in our modern era.

That is literally what has been happening. To this day, Tony Fauci REFUSES to tell the American people how much he received in financial payments from COVID-19 vaccine makers to peddle these technologies and PROMOTE them.

Dishonesty in Reporting and the Rise in PFA Chemicals

So let’s take a look at how lies, cover-ups, and political gamesmanship led to the deaths and ill health of hundreds of thousands of Americans in the past. Also known as forever chemicals, PFAS are essentially a group of synthetic chemicals with widespread use in modern-day products, including clothing, textiles, adhesives, packaging, and non-stick cookware.

For years, big industry and the government minimized the damaging effects of PFAs, as they did with cigarettes, Agent Orange, and with the COVID-19 mRNA tech modernly. Their persistence in the environment and inability to break down makes them a global concern. Additionally, the presence of poly-fluoroalkyl substances in firefighting foam (AFFF) used by both civilian and military bases exacerbates the issue. PFAS impact not only the environment but also the health of living organisms, with many studies linking them to various health problems such as hormonal disruption, cancer, and reduced immunity.

It is essential that every environmental protection agency plans a comprehensive environmental response against these toxic substances.

Why did the Department of Defense Switch to Aqueous Film Forming Foam?

The Department of Defense made the switch to utilizing Aqueous film forming Foams to use it as a firefighting agent against fuel fires. The unintended consequence of this decision was the release of PFAS chemicals into the environment during training exercises and emergency responses.

These releases have resulted in widespread PFAS contamination of groundwater and drinking water on military bases, causing alarm for communities located near these installations. The concern arises from the possibility of PFAS-contaminated groundwater seeping into nearby water supplies.

The DOD’s Ongoing Investigation of PFOS and PFOA

the DoD has been actively investigating the extent of PFAS contamination on its bases and implementing the necessary measures aimed at reducing future exposure at air force training areas and other locations.

This includes identifying sources of contamination and replacing per and polyfluoroalkyl substances with safer alternatives to ensure the groundwater is free from them and other hazardous substances. The DoD is also taking steps to educate service members and communities about the dangers of PFAS and the measures being taken to mitigate its impact.

What Role is the Environmental Protection Agency Play to Address PFAS

The EPA is an environmental working group responsible for setting standards for potentially harmful substances in the air and drinking water supplied in the US. At present, PFAS are not regulated by the EPA.

However, the EPA has ongoing efforts to understand the toxicity of PFAS, label them as hazardous substances for cleanup, and set standards for drinking water where necessary. The VA closely monitors the EPA’s actions in this regard, and if you want to gain detailed information about the EPA’s efforts, please visit their website.

The Dangers of Exposure to Polyfluoroalkyl Substances PFAS

As mentioned abundantly, PFAS remain a widespread chemical that most individuals have been exposed to in low concentrations. This hazardous chemical can be found in the bloodstream of most people. The impact of PFAS exposure on health is not well understood and is believed to vary based on factors like concentration, duration, and frequency of exposure.

You may be surprised to learn that this chemical is even found in private wells and drinking water wells, and DOD officials have been trying to address this situation for a long time.

Negative Health Effects Linked with PFAS

There has been plenty of research that suggests certain PFAS may have a number of negative health effects, including:

  • Infertility problems and pregnancy-related issues such as preeclampsia and hypertension
  • Some people may get high cholesterol levels
  • Alterations to the immune system
  • Elevated risk of certain types of cancer, including kidney and testicular cancer
  • Adverse impacts on child development
  • Increased likelihood of liver damage
  • Increased risk of thyroid disease
  • Increased likelihood of asthma.

Plenty of further research is required to fully comprehend the relationship between PFAS exposure and human health effects. It’s important to note that the evidence linking PFAS exposure to these health outcomes is not yet clear-cut.

What’s more, the ATSDR has been looking into the health effects of PFAS and is actively involved in communities affected by PFAS contamination. They assess the exposure levels of individuals in these communities and work with local officials to educate the public about the potential risks associated with drinking PFAS-contaminated water.

The VA is keeping a close eye on these efforts, closely monitoring developments, and working to ensure the well-being of those potentially affected. If you have been affected by this hazardous chemical, it would be best to get a defense PFAS expert to look into the compensation and liability act to see if you qualify for a payment or benefits.

PFAS Contamination in Food Packaging and Supply

PFAS contamination in the U.S. food supply and its impact on public health is not fully understood. Still, it is an area of concern and the subject of ongoing research and investigation. The EPA and FDA have been working to understand better the presence of PFAS in food and the potential health risks associated with exposure.

Meanwhile, some communities and farmers like Art Schaap have been negatively affected by PFAS contamination in their food supply. These incidents highlight the importance of continued monitoring and efforts to mitigate PFAS contamination in the food supply.

The DOD Has Known About PFAS Pollution, But What Did it Do?

The Department of Defense has a long history of being aware of the harmful impacts of PFAS pollution. As early as 1973, Air Force reports documented the toxic effects of PFAS-contaminated aqueous film-forming foam on fish and offered measures to prevent contamination in drinking water.

In the following years, various Air Force reports continued to raise concerns about the toxic effects of AFFF on fish. Later on, a wide range of animal studies funded by the Air Force found that some PFAS were toxic, and in 1985, Navy experts once again highlighted the toxic impacts of AFFF on fish.

Despite these findings, the DOD did not take action to replace the use of PFAS-containing firefighting foam until 2015, even after an Army Corps of Engineers’ recommendation to use non-hazardous substitutes.

How is the Situation being Addressed?

It took involvement by personal injury attorneys in the United States and elsewhere to fully place focus on contaminated military bases, just as it did to go shed light on Philip Morris and Big Tobacco. A Los Angeles personal injury attorney, Michael Ehline (seen in the below picture at Camp Pendleton) recently lost his father, Marine Sergeant Paul Ehline, to Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma from Agent Orange exposure in Vietnam during that police action.

Michael, also a US Marine, does not trust any politician or scientist who receives any benefit or campaign donations from what he views as “felonious” companies like Pfizer. Michael thinks that wicked people in high places are targeting our impressionable youth with disinformation in public schools, social media, and bogus fact-check labels. He thinks this is done to place profits over the most impressionable people (children), and to destroy our republic.

Michael started the Paul Ehline Memorial Motorcycle Ride, Military Veteran’s non-profit with some fellow USMC motorcycle riders to help spouses and children abandoned by their country. One of his goals is opening up El Toro, MCAS(H) Tustin, as well as Camp Pendleton to tort claims for survivors of base contamination.

Ehline says the U.S. Army has been investigating PFAS releases from the use of AFFF as a firefighting agent at airfields for many years. The Environmental Protection Agency has set a threshold concentration of PFOA and PFOS at 70 ppt.

A site inspection found nine locations with groundwater above 70 ppt, leading the Army to test nearby off-post drinking water wells. Most of these wells showed no traces of PFOA and PFOS, while three showed levels below the EPA health advisory, and one private well tested above the guideline. Currently, the Army is following CERCLA and working with state and federal agencies to address PFAS concerns.

Recently, the Camp Lejeune Justice Act, PACT ACT, and others helped families be able to recover damages. But a lot still must be done to change the unfair culture intertwined in politics, Silicon Valley, and medicine. First, we need to find a way to separate government scientists from powerful corporations. Doctors should not be allowed to market or peddle drugs they are profiting from. There are so many other things that must occur, or this will keep happening.

Conclusion

Our medical founding father, Doctor Benjamin Rush, would have never foreseen the cronyism and unfairness in letting a bureaucrat decide whether you can use Ivermectin, Oxychloroquine, or another drug to control symptoms. Besides that, funding gain of function and labeling it something else will allow pharmaceutical companies to perpetually inject you with emergency use vaccines that can kill you!
