This column high-lights the unethical/criminal attempts (of both the Trump-orchestrated, Biden-endorsed and Big Pharma-implemented Operation Warp-Speed, the unethical plan to totally skip both short-and long-term animal safety and efficacy studies) in order to promote potentially dangerous Covid-19 vaccines for both human adults and children.

Here is a very telling Announcement from the the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) website (May 4, 2021). Be aware that the AAP membership relies on routine vaccinations for a large portion of the annual revenues)

“Children ages 2-11 could potentially be eligible for (the still-experimental) COVID-19 vaccine this fall. Pfizer Chairman and CEO Albert Bourla, DVM, PhD (Doctor of Veterinary Medicine!), said on a quarterly earnings call Tuesday. He expects to request (experimental) Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in September. Under his plan, an EUA request for ages six months to 2 years would follow in the fourth quarter.

Pfizer and its (German) partner BioNTech currently are waiting for an FDA decision on an EUA for adolescents ages 12-15 years.”

The list below was collated by Gary G. Kohls, MD

To back-up the accusation of “criminality” of Big Pharma corporations like vaccine-maker Pfizer, I attach a list of 14 Pfizer drugs that were FDA-approved for marketing before long-term safety Studies were done (Note that the corporate-controlled 1986 US Congress passed a law – signed by President Ronald Reagan – that made it against the law to sue pharmaceutical corporations for deaths or injuries caused by their vaccines!)

Pfizer is one of the largest multinational pharmaceutical (drugs and vaccines) companies on the planet – and one of the five largest vaccine manufacturers (the five are Pfizer, Sanofi, Merck, GlaxoSmithKline and Johnson & Johnson.  (AstraZeneca is # 10). Pfizer has faced hundreds of thousands of lawsuits – just in the US – for fraudulent marketing and medical injuries caused by its most profitable, drugs.

Pfizer holds the record for the largest fine paid for a health care fraud lawsuit filed by the U.S. Department of Justice. Pfizer paid $2.3 billion in fines, penalties, and settlement for illegal marketing claims.

Here is a partial list of 14 of Pfizer’s most dangerous, most litigated, most potentially lethal drugs. (NOTE:  If any reader had adverse effects to any of these Pfizer drugs, he/she might want to consult an attorney).

Celebrex, Bextra, Geodon, Zyvox, Lyrica, Neurontin, Protonix, Prempro, Chantix, Depo-Testosterone, Zoloft, Effexor, Lipitor, Xeljanz, etc

Celebrex and Bextra

Prizer promoted its two COX-2 pain relievers Celebrex and Bextra which generated 7000 lawsuits and a $894 million settlement. Both medications were me-too drugs similar to Merck’s infamous Vioxx, which caused 50,000 lawsuits because of cardiovascular deaths and injuries. Merck settled most of the cases with a $4.85 billion settlement.

Geodon, Zyvox, and Lyrica

Pfizer paid $1 billion to resolve allegations under the civil False Claims Act that the company illegally promoted four drugs – Bextra; Geodon, an anti-psychotic drug; Zyvox, an antibiotic; and Lyrica, an anti-epileptic drug – and caused false claims to be submitted to government health care programs for uses that were not medically accepted indications.

Neurontin

Pfizer paid out $142 million for committing racketeering fraud in the marketing of Neurontin.

Protonix

As part of a larger group of proton pump inhibitor lawsuits, Pfizer faced a number of Protonix lawsuits after it acquired drug company Wyeth who had been accused of marketing the drug for unapproved uses. In 2013, Pfizer agreed to pay $55 million to settle illegal marketing claims, but the company may still be facing lawsuits for permanent kidney damage caused by Protonix.

Prempro

Nearly 10,000 Prempro lawsuits were filed by women who had been diagnosed with breast cancer. The lawsuits were largely settled by 2012 for about $1 billion.

Chantix

Pfizer faced about 3,000 Chantix lawsuits filed by people who claimed they experienced suicidal thoughts and psychiatric disorders after using Chantix for smoking cessation. Pfizer set aside about $288 million and at least some of the cases were settled.

Depo-Testosterone

Thousands of cases of medical injury due to testosterone replacement therapy have been filed. Other drug companies have paid $ billions to settle their cases, however some Pfizer testosterone lawsuits were dismissed.

Zoloft

About 250 Zoloft lawsuits were filed, claiming Pfizer actively promoted the use of Zoloft to pregnant women despite knowledge of birth defect risks from their research.

Effexor

Effexor was a medication originally produced by Wyeth which has also been the cause of multiple lawsuits. People who filed Effexor lawsuits claimed that it caused birth defects, and separately, suicidal thoughts and behaviors. In September 2015, Effexor lawsuits were dismissed but may have been eligible to refile.

Lipitor

Pfizer’s drug that lowers cholesterol (but only minimally decreases heart attack and stroke risk) causes serious muscle necrosis (death), muscle weakness, diabetes and other unforeseen health defects has generated billions of dollars of lawsuits.

Xeljanz

Pfizer had failed to do long-term safety and efficacy studies on its new arthritis and ulcerative colitis drug prior to FDA-approval. Xeljanz was therefore only belatedly acknowledged by Pfizer to cause cancer, serious cardiovascular events and venous thromboembolism (such as pulmonary embolism or deep vein thrombosis). Many lawsuits are now in progress.
