The amount of our tax dollars our government wastes every year could float a small country’s budget. We accept it as necessary waste to be expected from our leviathan government as long as they get us the answers, services, and protection we require.
But the government consistently fails to protect us as they promise.
As much as 87.5% of biomedical research is wasted or inefficient, the respected Yale University epidemiologist declared in a sobering assessment for a federal research agency that spends about $40 billion a year on medical studies…
….“Waste is more than just a waste of money and resources,” Bracken preached to the audience back in July 2016, according to the NIH’s official account of the speech. “It can actually be harmful to people’s health.”
Nearly four years later, Bracken’s sweeping indictment about the financial management, organization and conduct of federal medical research looms large over a series of “what if” questions about the deadly and ever-spreading COVID-19 pandemic:
- What if the research community hadn’t bet all its marbles on the next pandemic coming from a flu instead of a version of the coronavirus?
- What if NIH or other agencies had funded research into the efficacy of drugs like chloroquine, hydroxychloroquine, Remdesivir, and HIV cocktails that had shown promise against coronavirus dating back to 2003?
- What if more pressure had been applied by the medical governance world to develop vaccines aimed at coronavirus?
- What if the medical community had simply adjusted its outdated modeling that predicted coronavirus would spread slowly and could be contained to account for the massive growth in global air travel the last decade that transported this virus from China to the West in treacherously fast time?…
…There wasn’t enough in a $40 billion a year pot of money to plan for two pandemics?
As you weigh that question, consider this: In the 15 years since evidence first emerged that drugs like chloroquine might help in a coronavirus pandemic, NIH spent:
- $3.7 million so researchers at Oregon Health & Science University could compel monkeys to drink excessively to determine the impact of drunkenness on tissues, organs and central nervous systems.
- $3 million to study why lesbian women are likely to be two times more overweight than gay men.
- $3.54 million for a series of anti-obesity hip-hop songs to see if they would encourage kids to skip the fries and eat healthier.
- $35,000 for a University of Missouri study on whether text messaging college students before pre-football game tailgates would lead to less alcoholism.
- $350,000 for Yale University and Arizona State University to measure whether young adults between 21 and 30 would lose more money gambling if they drank alcohol.
- $721,000 for an Arizona company to develop a flight simulator to study drunken piloting.
Why should we ask Dr. Anthony Fauci, the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, who stands next to President Trump and stomps on the president’s message of optimism about the potential efficacy of drugs like chloroquine, hydroxychloroquine, Remdesivir, and HIV cocktails that had shown promise against coronavirus?
Because The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) mission is to conduct basic and applied research to better understand, treat, and prevent infectious, immunologic, and allergic diseases.
According to Wikipedia, Dr. Fauci became Director of the NIAID in 1984. It was his job to oversee where his agency spent that $40B every year and clearly he didn’t spend it on studying the efficacy of drugs like chloroquine, hydroxychloroquine, Remdesivir, and HIV cocktails that had shown promise against coronavirus dating back to 2003?
Everything else apparently, but not coronavirus.
Where is the interagency coordination that we heard so much about during the impeachment hearings? How could the CIA have missed what the Communist Chinese Party scientists were studying at the level 4 bio lab in Wuhan?
Or, did the CIA know and not alert the NIAID to begin testing immediately? Or, was Fauci informed and chose to sit on his hands?
WASHINGTON (SBG) – As the coronavirus spread to all fifty states over the last two months, the Trump administration faced mounting criticism for the lack of reliable, widely accessible test kits. Now, a former senior federal health official nominated to his post by President Trump, alleges that the delays in testing occurred because leaders at the Centers for Disease Control “lied” to the president, and to Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar, about the center’s ability to produce the kits.
The only thing we’re guilty of is we ask questions the establishment’s legacy media refuse to. Ask yourself why we’re being censored.
