IC infiltration into the health research bureaucracy continues
Staggeringly deep reporting, Dr Malone - from one who apparently managed to emerge from the Black Hole and live to tell the tale. I really don't know what can be done. Right now, all I can hope is that someone reading this will eventually take on the dragon. For now, I focus on this: truth matters. Truth must be brought to the light of day, regardless of the consequences (or lack of them.) You continue to do America a great service. Thank you.
As a current gov con proposal writer, I am absolutely sickened that I have helped my company win contract dollars for this horrifying entity. I feel so guilty after reading this article. It's past time for me to start my own business and do my part to stop this circle jerk!
I retired from the Army in 2020 (civilian) and was burned out by the bureaucracy and inefficiency that I had struggled with for decades. I had witnessed first hand a cycle of gradually increasing decay in Army processes. I assumed that similar problems were occurring throughout the government. Dr. Malone's article confirms similar problems in (at least) the health/medical side of things.
It is really kind of depressing.
“If you are a journalist covering the healthcare beat, and wish to have access to the inside ‘scoops’ concerning what is going on or coming up within the US Government ‘health’ bureaucracy, you need to have insider access.… But the quid pro quo is that you have to play nice with the big boys, and not be too critical (see “controlled opposition” or ‘Hegelian dialectic’) or you will loose access to the centers of power and associated information stream.”
I believe it was Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn who explained that only the foreign journalists who wrote favorably about the Stalinist regime were permitted entry into the country. Whether or not I have the source correct scarcely matters because it’s the same story in every totalitarian system—whether it be the USSR, China, North Korea, or the NIH.
P.S. “loose” should be “lose” :-)
Thanks for the insight. Re your last question: Will they ever learn? No - they don't want to learn, they want to retain control.
It’s is so hard to absorb how much deception, selfishness, lies and disregard for the wellbeing of our citizens and mankind is happening at every level of our government.
We are rapidly approaching 'The Singularity' of a self-replicating, self-perpetuating Death Cult. 10 years in Med School, Residency & Fellowship have taught me the despicable spinelessness of 95% of my peers. Swallowed up by the machine and advancing the ball measured by ever enlarging budgets. Crumbs lining the pockets of Ivy League Bums.
Thank you, Dr. Malone, for your irrational temerity in standing up against the marshaled force of medical mediocrity. Having sacrificed my DEA License on the alter of writing Rx's for IVM & HCQ, let us (at our advanced age) embrace the Quixotic Struggle to salvage some shreds of Medical, Societal & Civilizational remnants of the Great Enlightenment Experiment.
As the saying goes, “Sunlight is the best disinfectant.”
Dr. Malone has masterfully aimed the Sun on the innerworkings of this corrupt conglomerate. It is now up to the rest of us, armed with this knowledge, to actively recruit and elect legislative leaders, such as Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, to revamp and streamline this conglomerate.
We need at least 100 Ron Johnsons among our 535 legislators to lead this charge.
Too much money looking for a way to be spent for nefarious reasons.
'"Apparently by mimicking the way that the infamous Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is run, and trying to transplant a bit of entrepreneurial spirit into NIH. And to be able to employ alternative contracting." Can you say Darpa.. ? great observations.. which I have researched .. before. The Dod interjected itself into the NIH many years ago.. and also like you said moved "operations" into Maryland suburbs.. and I will get a chance to review this more for more NUGGETS of wisdom. thank you .. :) Robert and Jill Malone. amazing research.. again.
I wish you could make a presentation of this essay before Congress.
Helpful details and background. New sibling "science" DP to be run by spook and "Rhodes Scholar" as a topper. When the puppets have puppets that have puppets . . . . More going on here by the global club than just money and power. Very coordinated, faster moving, and more overtly then in the past.
Very depressing, but not unexpected. Let's see... Now what would a PhD Anthropologist with intel background be good for? I know! Developing new control mechanisms for the peasantry! The Alphabet Boyz must be orgasmic over this latest billion $ boondoggle. Dr. M, thanks for this peek behind the curtain... Be safe and be careful! You are beginning to step on the toes of genuine monsters... Oh... What have they learned? ...That crime pays and that they are free to do anything they care to do! No accountability. No oversight. No obstacles to siphoning billions from the sheeple. (while maiming and killing millions along the way).
"Never mind the fact that this feedback loop of self interest has spawned one of the most expensive health care systems in the world, and that the overall health and longevity of the American taxpayers who fund it continues to slip, year by year, down the ladder of world health outcome ranking."
Why focus on public service & performance when the donors are so happy with the current system?
What a rich ore of Truth in this posting & in the comments. Maybe Solomon had it figured out 3,000 years ago; '...money answereth all things', (Eccl. 10:19, his version of '...follow the money trail...') The Apostle Paul wrote to Timothy,' ...the love of money (covetousness?) is the root of all evil' (1 Tim. 6:10).
In his last letter to Timothy, Rav Shaul (Paul) wrote '...I have fought a good fight, I have finished (my) course....' (2 Tim. 4:6 - 8), which message I dedicate to Dr. Zev Zelenko MD who is wounded, but his legacy will continue. To later readers of his letters, the rest of us, Apostle Paul wrote,'...all who desire to live Godly lives will suffer persecution....' (2 Time 3:12) I once heard a bold evangelist say, 'I am 'immortal' until my work is done.' Thanx to all of the Front Line Doctors & Nurses who have been carrying the burden & recognizing their "call to duty" Thank you Dr. Malone, & your dedicated followers, for your Witness for Empirical Scientific, Medical, & Historical TRUTH. We seem to have arrived at a major node in history. May God energize & Bless Truth-seekers everywhere at this time of accountability to all of humanity.
Can’t wait for your book!! It’s going to be full of such insights and true wisdom, I bet! They should wrap up warm! Love your links to philosophy and history and internationality!! We all can connect, no matter where we live... Bettina
