How Fauci cast doubt on effective low-cost treatments, transforming Remdesivir into lucrative ‘drug of choice’

NOTE: This is the third in the series of articles based on the book, The Real Anthony Fauci Bill Gates, Big Pharma, and the Global War on Democracy and Public Health, by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. published in 2021. Mr. Kennedy has a 40-year career as an environmental and public health advocate and lawyer. Other sources will be identified as needed to substantiate concepts brought forward in this series of articles. Kennedy’s book also has QR codes to bring you up-to-date on the latest developments as they become available.

Remember 2007 when the price of an EPIPEN® headed into the stratosphere? The EPIPEN® is a mechanical delivery system, which injects a measured dose of the drug Epinephrine into the body. This makes the drug injection pretty much fool-proof for children and adults. For example, a child with a peanut allergy is likely to develop anaphylaxis upon ingestion of the peanut protein. This is a life-threatening situation. The EPIPEN® allows a parent or teacher to use the pen to protect the child, even with no training on hypodermic injections. This drug delivery system is patented.

Mylan NV, which had been founded in 1961 in West Virginia to ensure access to affordable medicine in difficult-to-reach communities, purchased the rights to the EPIPEN®. Mylan decided to do what Big Pharma companies do. That is to take an inexpensive product and tweak it, get a new patent on the tweak, and sell the “new” product at a much higher price. When patients protested against the unconscionable price increase, thus turning up the heat on Mylan, the company informed the government they would release a less expensive version of the EPIPEN® as a generic, but it was still expensive. The price increased from about $95 for a two-pack to a little over $600.

Electronic injectors for naloxone (Narcan) initially cost $4,000/pair. Fortunately pre-filled Narcan syringes came on the market at only $45 for the pair. That makes the syringes economically feasible for emergency responders to have available for drug overdoses.

The US government uses your tax dollars to fund in-house research. When a drug or vaccine is formulated, often a patent is assigned to a drug company for completion and filing under the drug company’s name, not in the name of the US government, which has funded the research. As Director of the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), Dr. Anthony Fauci controlled some $6 billion of our tax dollars for drug research. Reformulation of vaccines was especially important as they needed boosters or changes as viruses mutated. Here is how this scheme worked:

For this largess of assigning the patent to the drug company, Fauci got a kickback and an honorarium (money) for the government scientist(s) who developed the drug. Safety testing was managed to assure FDA approval under Fauci’s direction. He was the king of enforcing “group think.” Any scientist or doctor who opposed him during the process was marginalized to the point that their career was over in the USA.

When a low cost effective drug therapy already existed that competed with Fauci’s pet drug, Remdesivir, he picked a principal investigator (PI) to develop a test protocol, which proved the point Fauci wanted made. Hydroxy Chloroquine (HCQ) has been in use for other purposes such as controlling rheumatoid arthritis and malaria with a usual dose of 400 mg at a price of less than $20 for a 30 day supply. The NIAID and CDC had just spent $79 million developing Remdisivir for Gilead Sciences, Inc., of which the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) owns a huge stake. Fauci had to get HCQ banned from use against China Virus to allow his “vanity” drug, Remdesivir to be the drug of choice. According to every legitimate study, Remdesivir had no clinical efficacy against China Virus. Worse, it is poisonous, having killed 55 percent of the subjects in Ebola trials in Africa. (Chapter 1, page 63)

Furthermore, the World Health Organization (WHO) study of Remdisivir in 30 countries proved that it failed to reduce mortality, reduce the need for ventilators, or reduce length of hospital stays for China Virus; researchers found no detectable benefits and recommended against its use in China Virus patients. (Chapter 1, pages 68-69) Remdisivir is expensive at $3,100 for a course of treatment, but one dose costs only about $17 to manufacture.

Despite this information, Fauci, together with the Gates Foundation and WHO, designed drug trials to show that HCQ was a dangerous drug to use for counteracting China Virus. The PI (principal investigator) used a whoppin 2,400 mg doses of HCQ — SIX times a normal amount. Subsequent doses dropped to 800 mg per day onward. The PI also selected hospitalized elderly patients who were already weak from China Virus. All the drug trials, including the UK Recovery trial with 1,000 patients, the UN Solidarity trial with 3,500 patients, and additional REMAP-Covid trial of 13 countries, used those unprecedented and dangerous doses.

THAT PRETTY MUCH GUARANTEED THERE WOULD BE DEATHS. In fact, between 10 and 25% of test subjects died. WHO’s trials did NOT retain any consent forms from the elderly patients they were overdosing as required by law in most countries. In this murder-for hire scheme reported in JAMA, Brazilian researchers used a dose of 1,200 mg of HCQ per day for up to 10 days. With a median age of 55 years old, 39 percent of the trial subjects died. Brazilian prosecutors have accused the authors of the study of committing homicide by purposefully poisoning the elderly subjects in their study with high doses of chloroquine. Thus the HCQ therapy was “disproved” and allowed Fauci to ban HCQ from your doctor’s medical arsenal. (Chapter 1, pages 26 & 27. Footnote: 76)

A similar thing happened to the drug Ivermectin (IVM), which has been dispensed worldwide for over 25 years. It has gone from prescription to over-the-counter; that includes in Mexico as well. It is currently used in Africa as a pill administered weekly to ward off malaria, where it is called the “Sunday-Sunday” pill. When taking HCQ or IVM, the medicine needs to be administered within three or four days of diagnosis for best results. Also taking a prophylactic dose of HCQ and/or IVM drug doesn’t work very well either, if at all. The correct dose for an adult is 12 mg taken once.

Several years ago Duke and Vanderbilt Universities conducted a study of IVM. The protocol for the first round of their study was to use a significantly inadequate dose and spread it over three days; it didn’t work. Then the protocol was changed to double the inadequate amount of IVM and spread it over four days; it still didn’t work. When I went back on the internet to look at the study, all the data I had previously seen was missing.

In answer to my last article’s end statement as to why I decided against the “Jabs”, I have had pretty good success following my instincts. When I read the ingredients list for both Moderna and Pfizer “vaccines” I could not determine that they contained mRNA. This is too close to DNA for my tastes. That didn’t make me a happy camper. The thought kept repeating in my brain, “It’s not nice to fool Mother Nature,” a tag line in a TV commercial for Chiffon margarine from around 1974.

As it turns out, Dr. Robert Malone, who co-developed mRNA, learned that the Moderna and Pfizer “vaccines” contain DNA when trusted countries received ingredients lists that showed DNA was in the mRNA “vaccines”..

In my next article, we’ll look into how drug patents operate and keep drug prices escalating higher and higher.
