Covid-19: Researcher blows the whistle on data integrity issues in Pfizer’s vaccine trial Revelations of poor practices at a contract research company helping to carry out Pfizer’s pivotal covid-19 vaccine trial raise questions about data integrity and regulatory oversight. Paul D Thacker reports In autumn 2020 Pfizer’s chairman and chief executive, Albert Bourla, released an open letter to the billions of people around the world who were investing their hopes in a safe and effective covid-19 vaccine to end the pandemic. “As I’ve said before, we are operating at the speed of science,” Bourla wrote, explaining to the public when they could expect a Pfizer vaccine to be authorised in the United States. But, for researchers who were testing Pfizer’s vaccine at several sites in Texas during that autumn, speed may have come at the cost of data integrity and patient safety. A regional director who was employed at the research organisation Ventavia Research Group has told The BMJ that the company falsified data, unblinded patients, employed inadequately trained vaccinators, and was slow to follow up on adverse events reported in Pfizer’s pivotal phase III trial. Staff who conducted quality control checks were overwhelmed by the volume of problems they were finding. After repeatedly notifying Ventavia of these problems, the regional director, Brook Jackson, emailed a complaint to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Ventavia fired her later the same day. Jackson has provided The BMJ with dozens of internal company documents, photos, audio recordings, and emails.
Fact Check: The British Medical Journal Did NOT Reveal Disqualifying And Ignored Reports Of Flaws In Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine Trials Did the British Medical Association’s news blog reveal flaws that disqualify the results of a contractor’s field testing of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine, and were the problems ignored by the Food & Drug Administration and by Pfizer? No, that’s not true: Pfizer and the FDA were made aware of the allegations about the contractor in 2020. Medical experts say the claims aren’t serious enough to discredit data from the clinical trials, which is also what Pfizer and the FDA say they concluded. The FDA says its position is unchanged: The benefits of the Pfizer vaccine far outweigh rare side effects and the clinical trial data are solid. The claims were made in a November 2, 2021, article on the BMJ blog titled “Covid-19: Researcher blows the whistle on data integrity issues in Pfizer’s vaccine trial” (archived here), which opened: … for researchers who were testing Pfizer’s vaccine at several sites in Texas during that autumn, speed may have come at the cost of data integrity and patient safety.
26 States Distance Themselves from NSBA Letter Targeting Parents as ‘Domestic Terrorists’ A national parents’ organization has named 26 state associations that have distanced themselves from the National School Boards Association (NSBA) since its top officials wrote to President Joe Biden requesting he use federal law enforcement to target parents voicing concerns about their children’s education as potential “domestic terrorists.” National grassroots organization Parents Defending Education (PDE) reported Tuesday these state associations have distanced themselves from NSBA since the letter became public and further information about its background was released: Alabama; Arkansas; Delaware; Florida; Georgia; Idaho; Illinois; Indiana; Iowa; Kentucky; Louisiana; Mississippi; Missouri; Montana; New Hampshire; New Jersey; North Carolina; Ohio; Pennsylvania; South Carolina; Tennessee; Texas; Virginia; Wisconsin; Wyoming. Additionally, PDE noted these states have taken even further action by entirely cutting ties with NSBA or withdrawing their membership dues: Alabama; Florida; Kentucky; Louisiana; Missouri; Montana; New Hampshire; Ohio; Pennsylvania; South Carolina; Wisconsin
Police Charged Thousands of People For Petty COVID Violations In March and April of 2020 drastic emergency measures were imposed by federal, state, and local government authorities for the stated purpose of curbing the spread of COVID-19. By March 16, 2020, all states had declared a State of Emergency, and by April 7 all states except four had imposed a “Stay at Home” order of some kind. Counties and municipalities also decreed their own separate COVID-related orders. As usual in the US, the details greatly varied by jurisdiction — some measures were far more stringent than others. But in general, a new legal regimen had taken hold across the country, in the name of combatting what was described as a once-in-a-lifetime public health crisis. From the outset, a pressing question — still yet to be adequately answered — was how exactly these Emergency Orders would be enforced on a practical on-the-ground level. Were police officers being directed to issue summonses and make arrests? If so, under what authority? The diffused patchwork of laws in the US made this difficult to ascertain in any kind of comprehensive way. Last April, I went to Delaware after coming across reports on social media that police were pulling over drivers with out-of-state license plates, pursuant to the Governor’s COVID-related Emergency Order. While I wasn’t pulled over myself, I did speak to a number of people who had been — seemingly arbitrarily, since they were from nearby Maryland and routinely came to Delaware for work or other innocuous purposes.
Surgeon general on Matthew McConaughey’s opposition to vaccine mandates for kids: ‘Covid is not harmless in our children’ US Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy stressed Tuesday that parents need to recognize that “Covid is not harmless in our children” after actor Matthew McConaughey said his kids aren’t vaccinated and that he’s against mandating vaccines for children.”Many kids have died. Sadly, hundreds of children — thousands — have been hospitalized, and as a dad of a child who has been hospitalized several years ago for another illness, I would never wish upon any parent they have a child that ends up in the hospital,” Murthy told CNN’s Erin Burnett on “OutFront.” “And the vaccines have shown in these trials for children 5 through 11 they are more at 90% effective in protecting our kids from symptomatic infection, and they are remarkably safe as well.” Murthy’s message comes after McConaughey, a potential Texas gubernatorial candidate, said at The New York Times’ DealBook summit earlier Tuesday, “I couldn’t mandate having to vaccinate the younger kids. I still want to find out more information.” The “Dallas Buyers Club” actor added that, as of “right now,” he’s not vaccinating his own children. The comments from McConaughey, who said he has been vaccinated himself, come as the Biden administration makes a push to boost the number of Covid-19 vaccination sites for children. The effort follows US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky’s decision to endorse a recommendation to vaccinate children ages 5-11 with Pfizer’s two-dose course.
War on Terror veterans fight for memorial at the National Mall Michael Rodriguez served 21 years in the Army with multiple deployments to Afghanistan. Now, he and other veterans are fighting for a memorial to veterans of the War on Terror at the National Mall. “This specific location provides an environment for solemnity,” Rodriguez said. Marina Jackman, CEO of the Global War on Terror Memorial Foundation, is championing the cause. “The place that this memorial should be is here on our National Mall, in this sacred space,” Jackman said. The push for the memorial hasn’t been easy. Congress passed a law in 2003 that prohibits new construction on the National Mall. In 2015, her organization began lobbying Congress to make an exemption. U.S. Rep. Michael Rodriguez of Wisconsin has since co-sponsored a bill that paves the way for the memorial. “For 20 years, veterans of the Global War on Terror have fought hard to keep our country safe. The House has taken important steps to ensure their service is properly honored on the National Mall, but one final step remains. Now is the time for the Senate to follow the House’s lead and get this done,” Gallagher said.
Veteran who lost eye in combat celebrates ‘Mike Wazowski Day’ with his 6 kids On a chilly day in 2008, a U.S. Army Military Intelligence officer named Charlie Bailey found himself kneeling beside a statue of Mike Wazowski, the popular protagonist from “Monsters, Inc.,” for a photo. Two years earlier, Bailey had lost his left eye in combat in Iraq. His children decided to declare June 11, the anniversary of Bailey’s injury, to be “Mike Wazowski Day,” an ode to both the one-eyed Disney Pixar character and the dad they love. “Every year we create a Mike Wazowski cake and celebrate that he is still here with us,” Bailey’s wife, Jen Bailey, 40, told TODAY Parents. “It’s an annual celebration of life for Charlie.” Charlie Bailey, 44, said with a laugh that in some ways, Mike Wazowski Day has become more of a celebration in his household than his birthday. “The kids get so much joy out of it,” he said. “It’s a theme that kind of just continues throughout the year. Our 7-year-old is always drawing pictures, and every picture she draws has one eye. For her, that’s her ‘normal.’”
Hour 2 – Special Guest: Cordie Lee Williams
Dr. Cordie Williams is a US Marine and Chiropractor. At the beginning of the COVID pandemic in 2020, Dr. Cordie felt the state of California was violating his right and the rights of other Americans. As a father, veteran, and business owner, he knew he had to be the man to stand up. Dr. Cordie picked up a megaphone and began speaking up at protests all across California, gaining him the name #megaphonemarine.
His message was loud and clear and caught the attention of millions. His speech from May 1, 2020, at the state capitol in Sacramento, CA, has received more than 8 million hits on Facebook and has generated over 15 million views across all platforms. “In the face of tyranny, in the face of freedom, are you going to sit there in your riot gear against peaceful protesters?” asked Williams. “Or are you going to say, ‘you know what, it’s time to stand up for my country? Because I took an oath of office and it said, ‘I will defend against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”
Emboldened by government overreach plaguing America, Dr. Cordie was inspired to found 1776 Forever Free to help protect all Americans’ freedom. Just like he raised his voice for the people, the movement has increased the volume on the importance of Constitutional Rights to all Americans, regardless of race, religion, creed, or color. In September 2020, 1776 Forever Free began a journey, The Freedom Tour, which crisscrossed the country from California, across the heartland, to the south and landing in D.C. right before the Presidential election. The strength of the movement that Dr. Cordie founded is evident in the involvement of its supporters.
Hospice workers help couple in their 90s take the wedding photos they never had There was no time to get a photographer or even a wedding gown when Royce King and his wife, Frankie, got married on his whirlwind, two-day leave in 1944 before he went overseas to fight in World War II. Seventy-seven years later, the couple from Iowa finally have some beautiful wedding photos to cherish. Royce, 98, and Frankie, 97, had a special 77th anniversary on Sept. 16 thanks to the staff at St. Croix Hospice who help care for the couple at the Kings’ home in Oelwein, Iowa. They found a vintage 1940s wedding gown for Frankie, and Royce wore his Air Force uniform as they held an anniversary celebration in their backyard on a beautiful sunny day. Flowers from the patio were turned into a bouquet for Frankie, and a music therapist from St. Croix played some 1940s standards as Frankie walked down the “aisle.”
Watch Company Give 11 Homes to 11 Stunned Veterans—And You Can Enter Now to Win the Last One To celebrate Veteran’s Day in the U.S. tomorrow, the nation’s top Veterans Administration-affiliated home lender launched a national campaign to highlight vets and their service. With the help of actor, comedian and retired U.S. Marine Rob Riggle, Veterans United Home Loans has been giving thanks to veterans across the country by surprising them with new houses—completely paid off. “These Veterans have continued to live the military value of ‘selfless service’ even after they’ve hung up their uniforms,” said Riggle. “Teaming up with Veterans United to recognize these incredible Veterans has been an amazing experience.” Veterans play a pivotal role in strengthening civic health, from volunteerism and voting to charitable giving and community involvement. As the initiative’s first expression of gratitude, the Missouri-based lending company and its charitable foundation surprised 10 deserving Veterans with a new house each. And, the big news for veterans nationwide is that they can enter for a chance to win the 11th house by joining the sweepstakes at ThanksToVeterans.com. “Our #ThanksToVeterans campaign underscores the daily commitment of veterans as local leaders, dedicated volunteers, and exemplary neighbors,” said Pam Swan, vice president of military relations for Veterans United Home Loans and a military spouse. “And what better way to thank these deserving individuals than by giving them houses of their very own in the communities they call home?”
One of Britain’s Last D-Day Veterans Returns From France Completing His ‘Final Mission’ – and 68 Years of Charity One of Britain’s last surviving D-Day heroes returned home from France after completing his ‘final mission’—and got straight back out collecting for the 68th consecutive year. 96-year-old Harry Billinge has completed what he described as his ‘last duty’ to pay tribute to his fallen friends who died on the Gold Beach during the landings in 1944. He traveled back across the Channel to support a tribute recording the names of all 22,442 service personnel who died under British command on D-Day and the Battle of Normandy. And after collecting at least £50K ($67k) towards the construction of the memorial, he said he was incredibly moved to see the names of his fallen friends carved in stone during the unveiling last month. But instead of coming home to St Austell, Cornwall, to put his feet up—Harry has already been out collecting again to help maintain it and build an education center on the site. He has now spent an incredible 68 years raising money for military charities—and said his new-found ‘celebrity status’ meant people were queuing this week to put money in his tin.
