As most federal agencies have been co-opted by the corporations they are supposed to regulate, the CDC has become little more than an arm of the vaccine industry, says Robert F. Kennedy Jr., a leading voice in the vaccine safety movement.
“There’s a phenomena that is very well documented called agency capture which is a dynamic by which the agency that’s supposed to protect the American public from bad drugs or from pollution ultimately becomes a subsidiary or a suck puppet for the industry that it’s supposed to regulate.” – Robert F. Kennedy Jr. [SOURCE]
To illustrate, Kennedy explains in an interview with RT America that Julie Gerberding, the former head of the CDC from 2002-2009, was involved in a plethora of scandals including billion-dollar deals with leading vaccine manufacturer Merck, the silencing of vaccine whistleblower William Thompson, and the approval of several vaccines which scientists within the CDC had spoken out against as unsafe for mass consumption.
After Julie Gerberding stepped down to became the head of the CDC’s vaccine department, Brenda Fitzgerald, the CDC director from 2017-2018 had to resign after being caught buying shares of Merck’s stock while holding her position.
“The CDC is actually a vaccine company. [It] has a total budget of about 11 billion dollars per year. It spends 5 billion of that buying vaccines from those four [Merck, GlaxoSmithKline, Sanofi, Pfitzer] companies, making sweetheart deals which we pay more with our taxpayer money than they pay for the exact same vaccine in Europe.” ~Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
In addition to profiting from vaccine sales, the CDC itself also owns the patents to many vaccines, collecting royalties of up to $150 thousand per year while their scientists study them. Vaccine manufacturers also have legal indemnity, preventing them for being sued for harm. The related 1988 law states, “no vaccine manufacturer shall be liable in a civil action for damages arising from a vaccine-related injury or death”.
“These are zero-liability products. No matter how toxic the ingredient, no matter how grievous your injury, no matter how negligent the company, you can’t sue them.” ~Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
Kennedy also points out that the same companies which produce vaccines have been caught in numerous scandals with other products, such as opioid-based painkillers and many other drugs which were shown to cause harm after being approved by government agencies.
“To think that those same companies somehow are corrupt on every other product but somehow when it comes to vaccines, they found Jesus and they’re not going to do that when they know they can’t get caught.” ~Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
Robert F. Kennedy has become a leader in the vaccine safety movement due to his history as an environmental health activist, chairmanship of the Children’s Health Defense initiative, and his notoriety as former president John. F. Kennedy’s nephew.
