This year, the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund turned 77 years old. Since their founding in 1944, these two international financial behemoths have grown into massive bureaucracies and are largely controlled by US special interests who push policies that run counter to the interests of the rest of the world.
Through cronyism and predatory lending, the World Bank and IMF have systematically devoured the national sovereignty of countries worldwide in order to bend those countries to the will of the oligopoly. Through loans and leveraged debt, these highly corrupt institutions have forced countries into servitude, violating international pacts and human rights in the process. They have also made it entirely clear that they have no qualms about supporting dictators.
The World Bank uses this aforementioned control to amplify the will of the massive corporations whose interests it serves to protect. The vaccine manufacturers are part of this racket and on Friday, World Bank President David Malpass made a telling admission. In a nutshell, Malpass stated that Pfizer won’t go into countries unless those governments grant them immunity from any an all damages caused by their vaccine.
If the country allows individuals or organizations to sue after Pfizer hurts them, Pfizer stays out.
“Pfizer has been hesitant to go into some of the countries because of the liability problems, they don’t have a liability shield,” Malpass stated on Friday.
Imagine the audacity it takes for a company who is ostensibly helping to stop a pandemic to tell people they can’t have their “life-saving” medicine unless said company can harm them with impunity. There is no need to imagine, as this is the situation in which we currently find ourselves.
It is no secret that removing someone’s liability also removes their incentive to create safer products and actually encourages careless behavior. Vaccine manufacturers are no stranger to this process and since 1988, the U.S. taxpayers have shelled out over $4 billion to pay for the damages caused by vaccines — not the manufacturers.
In 1988, largely due to vaccine makers lobbying the government to alleviate their liability, The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) was established.
After an uptick in lawsuits in the late 80’s, the vaccine manufacturers essentially held the government hostage and threatened to stop making vaccines unless the government took on responsibility for vaccine injury lawsuits — and NVICP did just that.
You can actually prove that you or your child were harmed from a vaccine yet the vaccine maker is completely shielded from liability. Even if you are awarded monetary compensation through the NVICP, the taxpayers are put on the line, not the vaccine makers. This removal of liability has created the incentive to turn out new vaccines with very little testing, as the companies don’t have to worry about financial hardships for injuring people, which in turn has shaped the situation that we find ourselves in today. In the last 2 decades, we’ve witnessed a near 300% increase in the number of CDC recommended vaccines.
Now, we have companies like Pfizer turning out a vaccine that was developed and approved in only eight months and they had absolutely zero incentive to devote resources to the in depth study of its safety. In fact, as we reported, the British Medical Journal published an incendiary report exposing faked data, blind trial failures, poorly trained vaccinators, and a slow follow-up on adverse reactions in the phase-three trial of Pfizer’s Covid jab.
Seems like a company who has no worry of liability, doesn’t it?
The NVICP doesn’t go far enough for Pfizer, however, and with the Emergency Use Authorization of its product last year, an entirely new form of immunity was rolled out. If you are injured by one of the COVID-19 jabs, you don’t get to use the NVICP because no COVID-19 vaccine is on their list of “covered vaccines.”
Instead, last year under Donald Trump, then Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar invoked the Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness Act (PREP). The 2005 law empowers the HHS secretary to provide legal protection to companies making or distributing critical medical supplies, such as vaccines and treatments, unless there’s “willful misconduct” by the company. The protection lasts until 2024.
That means that for the next several years, these companies “cannot be sued for money damages in court” over injuries related to the administration or use of products to treat or protect against Covid.
“When the government said, ‘We want you to develop this four or five times faster than you normally do,’ most likely the manufacturers said to the government, ‘We want you, the government, to protect us from multimillion-dollar lawsuits,’” said Rogge Dunn, a Dallas labor and employment attorney.
And that’s exactly what the government did. So, in instances of harm from the COVID-19 vaccine, no one is held liable because it’s the FDA who approved the vaccine and you can’t sue them.
“You can’t sue the FDA for approving or disapproving a drug,” said Dorit Reiss, a professor at the University of California Hastings College of Law. “That’s part of its sovereign immunity.”
Within the PREP Act, government established the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program (CICP), which provides benefits to eligible individuals who suffer serious injury from the uncovered vaccines. However, the coverages are weak. If you are injured so badly from the vaccine that you can’t even leave your home, the maximum amount of money you will get it $50,000 per year as long as you are injured.
Even if you literally drop dead after getting the shot, the program’s death payout is capped at $370,376.
“This government compensation program is very hard to use,” said Reiss. “The bar for compensation is very high.”
Indeed, it is extremely high. Of the 3,649 claims filed, the CICP has compensated only 29 claims — ever — and none of them for the COVID-19 jab.
Now, we find ourselves in a situation in which many within the government want to force Americans to take the shot that has not undergone long term testing, with absolutely no recourse if that vaccine hurts or kills you. These vaccine manufacturers are working in concert with government and banking bureaucracies to make sure they can force their products on you with zero liability, and we’re the “conspiracy theorists” for pointing this out. This is 2021.
