So if you’ve been conscious for these past two-plus years you know we as a species have been pushed to the brink of extinction by a virus which has, to date, been given credit for killing somewhere around only 0.07%, or seven one-hundredths of one percent of the world’s population. Of course, if not for the very valiant and don’t forget “scientific” measures that were implemented by people way smarter than us rabble to counter the virus which shall not be named, the other 99.93% would surely have also perished by now.
Chief among these measures is the miracle of the vaccine, namely the mRNA vaccine developed and deployed by both Pfizer and Moderna. Moderna is something of a second banana in this play as Pfizer has shown itself to be the vaccine of choice. And we should all genuflect to Pfizer for saving the planet. Amen.
Now there are some crackpots out there who have had the temerity to question not only the unassailable “safety and efficacy” of this vaccine, but the actual need for it in a more-than-significant portion of the population. Those folks are clearly Nazis and racists.
But a funny thing happened on the way to the great temple being erected for our new savior. Pfizer filed their year-end report with the Federal Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). You see, every year they, as other publicly traded companies, must file a report with the government telling us how they’ve done and what their projected forecast for the coming year is. And they must divulge all information that might cause their stock to decline in the future so shareholders and would-be investors can make an educated decision on whether to buy or sell Pfizer stock. Interestingly, if Pfizer withholds information that might hurt the financial well-being of said investors, they can be sued for damages. This is in stark contrast to the fact that if their coronavirus vaccine kills your mother or permanently scars the heart of your eight year old son, you can’t touch them. Government approved indemnity and all that sort of thing. Let that sink in.
But as I said, in this SEC report they must disclose everything. Now if you’re a “The drug companies really care about us, the government would never lie to us, masks work, and unicorns are real” kinda person, you should just stop reading now. But if you’re someone who still has some functioning grey matter between your ears and is interested in some of the truth of what’s been done to us over the last two-plus years, read on.
Pfizer tells us in this report (bolding mine for emphasis):
“This Annual Report contains forward-looking statements concerning our business, operations and financial performance…These forward-looking statements are subject to known and unknown risks…”
Some of these risks include “competition from other COVID-19 vaccines…the timing and ability of us and our collaborators to obtain regulatory approval for our COVID-19 vaccine and our product candidates, and to commercialize our approved and investigational product candidates, if approved…the pricing and reimbursement of our COVID-19 vaccine…the rate and degree of market acceptance of our COVID-19 vaccine…the development of and projections relating to our competitors or our industry…our expectations regarding the timing of customer payments for delivered COVID-19 vaccine…We face significant competition from other makers of COVID-19 vaccines and may be unable to maintain a competitive market share for our COVID-19 vaccine…majority of our total revenues, and all of our product revenues, in 2021 are attributable and in 2022 will be attributable to sales of our COVID-19 vaccine”
So as you can see, this is all business. All Pfizer is concerned about is market share, commercialization, competition, and profit. They’re telling us the vaccine accounts for all of their product revenues! Do you think it's possible that the drug companies have considerations other than saving the world (unless you're a poor country that can't afford to pay for the vax, then you can just go pound sand)? Again if you’re a true-believer, it’s time to wake the hell up and understand this vaccine was never about your health and always about money. A year and a half ago I posted a piece looking at a 2010 story from a German news organization called Der Spiegel which dissected the world’s hysterical reaction to the 2009 Swine Flu pandemic (which was gonna kill us all) and how the drug companies manipulated the situation to their advantage. That very same story could have easily been written about these last two years; and no doubt someday soon will be. But let’s give Pfizer a break. They are after all a for-profit company. You cannot really blame them for doing what they are designed to do: make money (you didn’t really think drug companies were in this for your welfare, did you?).
The really interesting part of this story comes in a few sentences under the sub-heading of “Risk Factors” which could hurt Pfizer’s financial performance.
“Our revenue depends heavily on sales of our COVID-19 vaccine, and our future revenues from our COVID-19 vaccine are uncertain…We may not be able to demonstrate sufficient efficacy or safety of our COVID-19 vaccine and/or variant-specific formulations to obtain permanent regulatory approval…Significant adverse events may occur during our clinical trials or even after receiving regulatory approval…Even if we obtain full regulatory approval for our COVID-19 vaccine and product candidates, the products may not gain the market acceptance among physicians, patients, hospitals, cancer treatment centers and others in the medical community necessary for commercial success…mRNA drug development has substantial clinical development and regulatory risks due to limited regulatory experience with mRNA immunotherapies…If we discover safety issues with our products, including our COVID-19 vaccine, that were not known at the time of approval, commercialization efforts for our products could be negatively affected...unforeseen safety issues and claims for personal injury or death arising from the use of our COVID-19 vaccine”
You might want to go back and read that last paragraph again. Pfizer is telling us “We may not be able to demonstrate sufficient efficacy or safety of our COVID-19 vaccine” They’re saying it out loud. They’re telling us “Significant adverse events may occur…EVEN AFTER receiving regulatory approval” They’re telling us we might “discover safety issues…that were not known”.
Now wait just a minute. We have been told for more than a year, IN NO UNCERTAIN TERMS that this vaccine was both “safe” and “effective”. Well, the “effective” part is out the window, even Fauci knows that (he’s got four shots in him and is still afraid to go to social functions). Why do you think Pfizer cites concerns that the vaccine might not gain “market acceptance”? If the vaccine proves to be useless (and potentially harmful), nobody will want it. So the “effective” part is gone, and they’re warning their potential investors, out loud, that they might not actually be able to show “efficacy or safety” and that there may be “significant adverse events” even AFTER approval. How long “after”? I guess we’ll find out.
Am I saying this is proof the vaccine will do terrible things to people? No. Is it proof that nobody has any idea what this grand experiment will do to us and our children. Absolutely. Am I saying we've been lied to about this vaccine (and pretty much everything else) concerning this pandemic by our "experts" and talking heads? Absolutely. Still feeling righteous about getting your vaccine and demonizing those who chose not to do so? Of course you are.
