Big Pharma Owns Congress, According to Major Federal Player

This sort of philandering was once a clandestine thing, not to be spoken of but by fringe lunatics and conspiracy theorists, a Venn diagram of which would have quite a bit of overlap.

There are dirty little secrets all over Washington DC, percolating in the endless expanses of the Deep State Swamp.  Above those belches piles of putrid untruths, however, lies a nigh-impenetrable canopy of corruption.

For all of the smalltime swindlers and half-assed hornswogglers of The Beltway, there are exponentially more big-time, mob-boss-channeling cutthroats living off the fat of the land.  These are the industrialists whose dynastic family wealth is all but a game of riches at this point:  The likelihood that any of these elite families could spend their fortunes before the Yellowstone Caldera erupts is asinine…they’re only still playing the game in order to have bragging rights on the rest of the ultra-wealthy.

In Congress, this evil has manifested itself in several distinct channels, most often vilified as Big Oil, Big Pharma, or Big Tobacco…any of the “Big” industries would be appropriate here.

The lobbyists for these corporate interest groups then infiltrate Congress with handshakes and manhattans, gaining favor only for the benefit of their employers.  This shapes law, these last call conversations at DC Swamp bars.  This is where money and politics should never have intersected.

This sort of philandering was once a clandestine thing, not to be spoken of but by fringe lunatics and conspiracy theorists, a Venn diagram of which would have quite a bit of overlap.

One former FDA official is looking to change all that.

Dr. Raeford Brown, a pediatric anesthesia specialist at the UK Kentucky Children’s Hospital and chair of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Committee on Analgesics and Anesthetics, has been openly critical of big pharma and the lack of proper oversight from the FDA.

Despite many politicians, particularly declared presidential candidates, beginning to speak out against big pharma, Brown does not think that anything will come out of it “because Congress is owned by pharma.”

“The pharmaceutical industry pours millions of dollars into the legislative branch every single year,” he told Yahoo Finance. “In 2016, they put $100 million into the elections. That’s a ton of money.”

And Brown made it clear that this wasn’t some sort of veiled attack on the White House, either.

“I’m really much more concerned because Congress is supposed to have oversight for the FDA,” Brown said. “If the FDA isn’t going to hold pharma accountable, and Congress is getting paid to not hold pharma accountable, then it really doesn’t matter who the president is because it’s really about Congress.”

The Founding Fathers would have warned us about such a future if they had the foresight to see that far ahead; a world in which those who want your money spend it on our government, who we also pay with our tax money, in order to make it easier for the drug company to take it again.

Manchin Shreds AOC, Says ‘She’s More Active On Twitter Than Anything Else’

Published

Despite the fact that the mainstream media has prematurely called the 2020 presidential election in favor of Democratic nominee Joe Biden, there’s a lot of hostilities and division ripping through the party right now. Particularly between Sen. Joe Manchin and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Manchin recently conducted an interview with the NY Times, which was posted up on Monday, in which he took aim at the diehard socialist congresswoman, claiming that she’s far more active on Twitter than she is in Congress. via Newsmax: His words came after a Nov. 11 tweet of his own where he had taken aim at calls to defund the police. He wrote: “Defund the police? Defund the police? Defund, my butt. I’m a proud West Virginia Democrat. We are the party of working men and women. We do not have some crazy socialist agenda, and we do not believe in defunding the police.” Ocasio-Cortez had fired back in a Nov. 12 tweet in which she posted a photo of herself seated behind Manchin at President Donald Trump’s State of the Union speech. In the photo, she appeared to be giving Manchin an icy stare as he applauded. In the Tuesday interview with the Times, Manchin addressed the tweet, saying: “I guess she put the dagger stare on me. I don’t know the young lady — I really don’t. I never met her. I’m understanding she’s not that active with her bills or in committee. She’s more active on Twitter than anything else.” A spokeswoman for AOC, Lauren Hitt, came out to defend the congresswoman by stating that she has submitted more amendments than 90 percent of other freshmen folk in Congress. “The congresswoman has earned a reputation as a tough, prepared member in committee hearings,” Hitt stated. Manchin isn’t exactly wrong here. AOC spends a whole…

Democratic Mayor Of San Jose Busted Allegedly Violating Coronavirus Rules For Thanksgiving

Published

on

The Democratic mayor of the city of San Jose, California is catching tremendous heat over accusations that he ignored COVID-19 restrictions after he urged citizens in the city to “cancel the big gatherings this year and focus on keeping each other safe.” Well, we all know how much the radical left in this country loves hypocrisy, so not shocked by this a bit. This really demonstrates how liberal “elites” view themselves as above the law, while they look at their constituents as peons. via Daily Wire: NBC Bay Area reported Monday that Democrat San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo appeared to “have broken health protocols in celebrating Thanksgiving with family members outside of his own household.” Reporters from the local affiliate learned that he celebrated Thanksgiving with his elderly parents, which his office later confirmed, with “an unknown number of other guests.” His office did not disclose how many people attended the dinner, how many different households attended, and whether those who attended wore masks. “This is a private event – not public,” Liccardo’s chief of staff, Jim Reed stated. “We are going to redraw the line between what is personal and what is public because that line has become blurred.” On the day before Thanksgiving, Liccardo tweeted, “Cases are spiking, in part because we’re letting our guard (and masks) down with family & friends. Let’s cancel the big gatherings this year and focus on keeping each other safe.” https://twitter.com/sliccardo/status/1331576931125379082 “While few details about Liccardo’s Thanksgiving celebration have been released, it appears the gathering did elude guidelines frequently touted by the Santa Clara County Public Health Department, aimed at slowing the spread of COVID-19,” NBC Bay Area said in their report. “A recent spike in coronavirus cases has prompted tighter restrictions across the Bay Area and the potential for California to exceed…
