In addition to the $6/mo for the substack, I'd happily make a contribution to the Alex v. Twitter legal fund.

I wish it didn't happen. You were an important voice. Good luck in court. My advice for Substack: publish same style as Twitter frequent, short posts with an occasional big one.

Did the FDA Pull a Bait-and-Switch

on the American People?

By Steve McCann

American Thinker

August 27, 2021

(Emphasis added)

On August 23rd all the mainstream or agitprop media outlets were trumpeting the news that the FDA had granted permanent approval for the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine.  The press breathlessly reported that vaccine mandates were now legal for healthcare workers, employees in private industry, college students, and government employees at all levels including teachers and school staff.

Almost immediately Joe Biden shuffled his way to the podium and read off his teleprompter that all businesses should immediately institute vaccine mandates.  The Pentagon announced that vaccinations would be  mandatory for all active service members.  Bill de Blasio immediately instituted a vaccine mandate for all New York City teachers and staff. 

But what the agitprop media and the Biden White House failed to report is that there are two critical issues as to whether the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid vaccine (which is what has been and continues to be administered) can be mandated and whether Pfizer can be held liable for injuries, a provision that accompanies permanent approval of a vaccine or drug.

What the FDA approved and licensed is Pfizer’s Comirnaty Covid vaccine not the current Pfizer-BioNTech Covid vaccine in use under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA).  The FDA has acknowledged that Pfizer has insufficient stocks of the newly licensed Comirnaty vaccine available but there is a significant amount of the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid vaccine available under the EUA still on hand.

Further, the FDA decreed that the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine should remain unlicensed and under the EUA but can be used interchangeably with the newly licensed Comirnaty vaccine.  More importantly, the FDA states that the licensed Comirnaty vaccine and the existing Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine are “legally distinct” but proclaims that their differences do not “impact safety or effectiveness.”  [emphases added]

Per the Children’s Health Defense Fund:  

There is a huge real-world difference between products approved under EUA compared with those the FDA has fully licensed.

EUA products are experimental under U.S. law.  Both the Nuremburg Code and federal regulations provide that no one can force a human being to participate in this experiment.  Under 21 U.S. Code Sec.360bbb-3(e)(1)(A), “authorization for medical products for use in emergencies,” it is unlawful to deny someone a job or an education because they refuse to be an experimental subject.  Instead, potential recipients have an absolute right to refuse EUA vaccines.

U.S. laws, however, permit employers and schools to require students and workers to take licensed vaccines.

EUA-approved Covid vaccines have an extraordinary liability shield under the 2005 Public Readiness and Preparedness Act.  Vaccine manufacturers, distributors and government planners are immune from liability.  The only way an injured party can sue is if he or she can prove willful misconduct, and if the U.S. government has also brought an enforcement action against the party for willful misconduct.  No such lawsuit has ever succeeded.

At least for now, the Pfizer Comirnaty vaccine has no such liability shield.  A vial of the branded product that says “Comirnaty” on the label is subject to the same product liability laws as any other product.  People injured by the vaccine could potentially sue for damages.  Based on what has been reported over the past six months regarding Covid vaccine side effects, the potential jury awards could be astronomical.

Thus, it is highly unlikely that Pfizer will allow any Americans to take the Comirnaty labeled vaccine until it can coerce Congress or the Biden Administration to somehow arrange immunity for the product.

Meanwhile, Pfizer has been given the green light by the FDA to continue administering the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid vaccine under the EUA.  And given the fact that they have a huge inventory on hand, they will continue to do so in any vaccine mandates. 

The obvious and inevitable question is: did the FDA cynically pull a bait-and-switch on the American people by announcing permanent approval of a Pfizer Covid vaccine, which everyone would assume to be for the vaccine currently in universal use, in order to abet the Biden Administration in imposing illegal vaccine mandates?

Or, more cynically, did the FDA also conspire with Pfizer to allow them to unload their current massive inventory of a vaccine that science and the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS)  have exposed as unreasonably dangerous as physicians, families, and injured vaccine recipients have reported more than 600,000 vaccine injuries.  And which has also been rendered obsolete by the Delta variant, requiring a “booster” shot that has yet to be tested or approved by the FDA.

Since the beginning of the Chinese Coronavirus pandemic, the entirety of the federal medical bureaucracy has been woefully inconsistent in their pronouncements, inevitably wrong in their prescribed actions, subservient to political pressure from Democrat party politicians, and far too cozy with pharmaceutical companies as they focused solely on vaccines and not therapeutics and prophylactics. 

But on the surface, these dubious actions by the FDA go far beyond incompetence.  The time has come for some genuine transparency and honesty from the FDA on how this Pfizer vaccine approval came about and why in such an inordinately short period of time for a new and experimental vaccine with no long-term trials.  This agency’s credibility is at stake.

Meanwhile, Americans should decide for themselves about being vaccinated.  But if someone is subject to a vaccine mandate, they should request to see if the vaccine they are about to receive is labeled the Pfizer Comirnaty vaccine as that is the only one licensed.  If any other, that person has the legal right to refuse.

Fuck them. I signed up for your paid content. First time I have ever paid for information on the internet. Victory is starting to appear over the horizon defeating these diabolical mandates due to natural immunity carrying the day and they are gonna become vicious trying to destroy everthing.

Well, you were the only reason I still used Twitter, so you just got another paid subscriber. Keep up the heat, Alex!

I'm sorry, Alex, that hurts. I've never been on the Twit and quit FB long, long ago. Any entity that would censor a sitting president (you're in good company, Alex!) and let the terrorist Taliban tweet whatever they want can't be a good place to be.

Twitter is getting so boring without voiçes like yours. Are you planning on going on Gab or some other platform?

Dropped off Twit last year. Saves me an hour a day and a whole lot of unnecessary depression.

I think social media influencing and The Emperor’s New Clothes have much in common, as in, moth illusory.

What is so controversial about the tweet. You are stating the truth.

So sorry Alex, thank you for standing up for truth. I’m forever grateful. Getting ready myself to get booted from my job. Hope we can all meet up and celebrate someday.

I disagree with Alex's opinion that the mRNA vaccines are really more like therapeutics. But the point of his Tweet was questioning the wisdom of requiring them when their peak efficacy is short-lived and there are known and unknown side effects to those who receive them. We don't even have an accurate estimate of side effects. Every drug advertised in the media requires a rapidly read disclosure of potential side effects including the ridiculous warning, "Don't take ______ if you are allergic to it." The one exception to this FDA requirement is the COVID vaccine. Why?

Everyone I know who has tested positive for COVID since July 1 is vaccinated. Few had symptoms, but all could have infected others. My real world experience confirms the conclusions of those studies that have found declining efficacy in these vaccines. Twitter's action against Alex is unconscionable. They are an agent of the CDC and no longer protected by the First Amendment or by any other statute. They are no different than a government snitch.

I deleted my Twitter account a few months ago, but you were one of 4 accounts I had bookmarks too, and by far the most compelling. I subscribed to your Substack, and have bookmarked it too. I hope you consider joining Gab.
