Don’t Blame the J&J Vaccine Pause for a Loss In Public Trust

By: Alice Salles

The U.S. task force and vaccines are poised to suffer a loss in public confidence. Most people blame the pausing of distribution of the Johnson & Johnson Covid-19 vaccine. But the public trust was inevitably going to falter regardless.

Instead of falling for the establishment narrative that points the finger at the J&J mishap, consider the root of the issue. That is the public-private nexus at the center of the country’s anti-virus campaign, particularly Dr. Anthony Fauci himself and other well-connected big businesses.

Corporations amiable to government have long been the key to carrying out grand visions of the state. Justin Raimondo warned in 2013 of the dangers of pretending that these collaborations aren’t to the detriment of us all.

Giant multinational corporations, and their economic satellites, in alliance with governments and the big banks, are in the process of extending their influence on a global scale: they dream of a world central bank, global planning, and an international welfare state, with American troops policing the world to guarantee their profit margins.

Any crisis can become the health of the state, as Robert Higgs famously showed. It is precisely in times of crisis that the well-connected benefit from state measures. 

This arrangement of government and select private powers inescapably raises reasonable suspicion that corruption is afoot, or at the very least a conflict of interests. The fact there are basically now only two major vaccines in the game only exemplifies this reality further. 

Now that the J&J vaccine pause has hit everyone’s newsfeed, is that event in itself to blame for any dip in the public trust of vaccines or the experts? Blood clots in a half-dozen women out of millions of people vaccinated with the J&J version was all it took?

Perhaps there’s something else going on that would cause people to doubt the Covid regime’s legitimacy.

Is it not reasonable to wonder if allergy expert Fauci gains anything by this newly heightened scrutiny against J&J?

Big Money, Crony Shots 

The J&J Covid-19 vaccine is the only option available in the U.S. not produced using the novel mRNA technology. It was pulled from the U.S. vaccination program after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) raised concerns regarding rare instances of blood clots. The move was defended by none other than Fauci, who stated that the blood clots patients experienced post J&J vaccination had “strong similarities” with the blood clots reported by European patients post AstraZeneca vaccination. And that, he said, should concern Americans. But when asked if people should be hesitant to take the Moderna or Pfizer shots, he insisted the mRNA vaccines were safe.

“The question that is often asked, does this have anything to do with the other vaccines, the mRNAs, from Moderna and from Pfizer? You know, absolutely not. Only 6.85 million of those were J&J. The rest were Moderna and Pfizer, and there’s no negative or adverse or red flag signal coming from any of those vaccines, which is very good news. In other words, they are very safe.”

While journalist Alex Berenson would probably disagree with Fauci’s claim given the numbers of adverse reactions provided by the CDC reportedly show that you are more likely to die after getting a Covid vaccine than a flu vaccine, the fact the health czar is reluctant to even recognize the reports provided by the CDC is telling. 

Fauci is the director of the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIAID), a branch of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) federal agency, and has occupied the same position since 1984. In a NIAD entry from March 2020 that has since been deleted, the agency stated that its researchers had begun working on the clinical trial for Moderna’s Covid-19 vaccine. In addition, it stated that the project was being funded by NIAID and that NIAID scientists were developing the serum at Moderna. 

Fauci was even quoted in the post, saying that “finding a safe and effective vaccine to prevent infection with SARS-CoV-2 is an urgent public health priority.”

J&J’s vaccine is produced by the firm’s Janssen Pharmaceuticals and funded by the J&J group in addition to grants from the U.S. government’s Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority, a U.S. Department of Health and Human Services agency. Moderna’s vaccine, however, appears to have been produced with funding allocated by the federal government under the command of an agency run by Fauci himself. 

But what about Pfizer?

Following the Johnson & Johnson vaccine news, European officials rushed to increase the number of orders from Pfizer’s BioNTech-produced Covid-19 vaccine. 

While not incriminating, one of the CDC’s top donors (yes, the country’s national public health agency takes private donations!) has directly invested in BioNTech. As a matter of fact, this same donor is portrayed by the legacy media as a friend and trusty ally of NIAID and Fauci. His name is Bill Gates. 

Did Gates directly fund Pfizer’s BioNTech-produced vaccines? We don’t know. Did he invest big money in BioNTech just months before the coronavirus pandemic broke out? Yes. Does his charitable foundation have a partnership with NIH (Fauci’s long-term employer) that involves the rollout of vaccines abroad? Yes. Did Gates openly favor the mRNA vaccine produced by the German lab, going as far as betting it would be the leader in the market? He sure did. Could this combination of factors lead one to guess that, perhaps, the U.S. government as well as Fauci, would be happy to reward Gates by trying to boost the vaccine’s appeal? Why not? 

As the U.S. marches through 2021 forcing us all to bear the costs of this seemingly never-ending Covid-19 debacle, Americans remain impoverished. In the meantime, legacy media urges us to celebrate the ones benefiting from the panic all the while ignoring the real story behind the J&J debacle.
