I was only remotely aware that Robert F. Kennedy Jr. was concerned with medical ethics and vaccine efficacy until I caught a recent video interview. So I read his book and was overwhelmed - in a positive way - by the amount of research and material included that was included, along with over 2,200 references.

I am duly impressed that one author could compile such a well-substantiated volume. I sure hope he had a plethora of research assistants. Most of the medical references are beyond my ability as a lay person to critique, but the book itself is readable albeit dense.

Kennedy begins by discussing how the COVID-19 pandemic was grossly mismanaged. He then discusses AIDS and HIV and how Big Pharma made a killing off the disease. He discusses how Africa has been used as a dumping and testing ground for drugs that aren't ready for prime time in America.

Although accused of being an avid anti-vaxxer, Kennedy actually presents factual information - much of it historical - on how vaccines have been inadequately tested, and how they have been abused by profiteering pharmaceutical corporations. Kennedy does an honorable job of presenting information that has not been readily available to the public.

How the COVID-19 pandemic was grossly mismanaged

Kennedy documents how tightly our government agencies are intertwined with the pharmaceutical industry. It's hard to imagine our federal agencies acting solely in the public interest under this arrangement. He writes that, for example, "The CDC owns 57 vaccine patents and spends $4.9 of its $12.0 billion-dollar annual budget (as of 2019) buying and distributing vaccines. NIH owns hundreds of vaccine patents and often profits from the sale of products it supposedly regulates." The FDA receives 45 percent of its budget from the pharmaceutical industry.

Kennedy critiques Dr. Fauci's mismanagement of the COVID-19 pandemic:

Dr. Fauci’s strategy for managing the COVID-19 pandemic was to suppress viral spread by mandatory masking, social distancing, quarantining the healthy (also known as lockdowns), while instructing COVID patients to return home and do nothing - receive no treatment whatsoever - until difficulties breathing sent them back to the hospital to submit to intravenous remdesivir and ventilation.

Kennedy writes that "Dr. McCullough gives us a stark and clear summary: 'Remdesivir has two problems. First, it doesn’t work. Second, it is toxic and it kills people.'"

Killing hydroxychloroquine

The FDA has approved hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) without limitation for 65 years. Yet Kennedy notes that if any FDA-approved drug like hydroxychloroquine or ivermectin proved effective against COVID, pharmaceutical companies would no longer be allowed Emergency Use Authorization to fast-track their billion-dollar vaccines. He writes:

From the outset, hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and other therapeutics posed an existential threat to Dr. Fauci and Bill Gates’ $48 billion COVID vaccine project, and particularly to their vanity drug remdesivir, in which Gates has a large stake. Under federal law, new vaccines and medicines cannot quality for Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) if any existing FDA-approved drug proves effective against the same malady:

So HCQ and ivermectin had to be killed.

Dr. Meryl Nass in Maine documented 58 separate strategies that Dr. Fauci, Bill Gates, and Big Pharma used to control the narrative on these life-saving drugs. And the mainstream media of course played along. Even pharmacies refused to fill legitimate prescriptions for HCQ.

Kennedy documents a number of approaches Dr. Fauci used to hide Pathogenic Priming or antibody-dependent enhancement (ADE) of mRNA vaccines, where an overstimulated immune system overreacts to an actual viral infection. The first approach was to abort the three-year clinical trials at six months and then vaccinate the controls, thus invalidating the study. The second was to refuse to fix the vaccine injury surveillance system (VAERS), which systematically suppresses reporting of most vaccine injuries. VAERS misses over 99 percent of vaccine injuries. Kennedy enumerates additional steps taken by Fauci to white-wash vaccine side-effects.

Kennedy notes that a number of viable alternative treatments are available:

[Dr. Peter] McCullough observes that, “We could have dramatically reduced COVID fatalities and hospitalizations using early treatment protocols and repurposed drugs including ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine and many, many others.” Dr. McCullough has treated some 2,000 COVID patients with these therapies.

McCullough and his growing team of 50+ front-line doctors discovered that while HCQ and IVM work well against COVID, adding other medications boosts outcomes drastically. These included azithromycin or doxycycline, zinc, vitamin D, Celebrex, bromhexine, NAC, IV vitamin C, and quercetin.

Indeed, The Japanese are using Prednisone, Budesonide, and Famotidine with extraordinary results.

Kennedy notes that regarding mask mandates and social distancing:

Dr. Fauci’s switch to endorsing masks after first recommending against them came at a time of increasing political polarization, and masks quickly became important tribal badges - signals of rectitude for those who embraced Dr. Fauci, and the stigmata of blind obedience to undeserving authority among those who balked.

In September 2021, former FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott Gotleib admitted that the six-foot distancing rule that Dr. Fauci and his HHS colleagues imposed upon Americans was “arbitrary,” and not, after all, science backed.

Big Pharma and Big Bucks

Kennedy documents that Dr. Fauci has played a crucial role in creating a pharmaceutical system where Americans pay the highest prices for medicine, yet suffer worse health outcomes, writing:

"From his perch at NIAID, Dr. Fauci has used his $6 billion annual budget to achieve dominance and control over a long list of agencies and governing bodies, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Health and Human Services (HHS) agencies, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Pentagon, the White House, the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations (UN) organizations, and into the deep pockets of the Clinton and Gates Foundations, and Britain’s The Wellcome Trust."

He continues:

"Since 2005, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has funneled an additional $1.7 billion into Dr. Fauci’s annual discretionary budget to launder sketchy funding for biological weapons research, often of dubious legality. This Pentagon funding brings the annual total of grants that Dr. Fauci dispenses to an astonishing $7.7 billion - almost twice the annual donations of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation."

Kennedy notes that under a secretive HHS policy, Dr. Fauci and his NIAID underlings may personally pocket up to $150,000 annually from drugs they helped develop at taxpayers' expense.

The HIV pandemic template

Kennedy writes that during his battle to win FDA approval for the AIDS drug AZT, Dr. Fauci pioneered strategies that he would use during the COVID epidemic, including:

  • fanning hysteria by exaggerating disease transmissibility
  • periodically stoking waning fear by warning of mutant super-strains
  • using faulty PCR and antibody tests and manipulating epidemiology to inflate non-verifiable case and death numbers
  • ignoring and dismissing effective off-the-shelf therapeutic remedies
  • championing dangerous and ineffective drugs originating in government laboratories as the only viable solution to end the pandemic
  • funding and orchestrating confirmation-biased research to validate his chosen remedy, and many more.

Kennedy notes that a disturbing number of virologists quietly doubt the theory that HIV is the sole cause of AIDS, writing that:

[Dr. Peter] Duesberg points out that HIV is seen in millions of healthy individuals who never develop AIDS. Conversely, there are thousands of known AIDS cases in patients who are not demonstrably infected with HIV.

Yet Fauci and Big Pharma aggressively promoted AZT, which cost a patient $10,000 per year.

Africa as a dumping ground

Kennedy notes that in August 1941, President Franklin Roosevelt forced Winston Churchill to sign the Atlantic Charter as a condition for US support of the Allied effort in World War II. It ended colonialism in Africa, but as an unintended consequence opened up Africa to "soft colonization" by multinational corporations.

The result is that Dr. Fauci and Bill Gates have turned the African continent into a dumping ground for dangerous, expired, and ineffective drugs, many of which have been discontinued for safety reasons in the US and Europe. He related this to "philanthrocapitalism", the operational philosophy of the Gates Foundation. Indeed, by 2015, Gates was spending $400 million annually on AIDS drugs - and testing them mainly on Africans. Kennedy observes that:

Gates’s HIV vaccine and antiviral program is due to its continent-wide scale, arguably the worst in a long parade of paternalistic Western schemes by imperialists, avaricious adventurers, scammers, schemers, charlatans, double-dealing rogues, and well-meaning dolts who regularly pledge to end African suffering.

Gates has stated the $10 billion spent on vaccines over the past 20 years has resulted in a 20-to-1 return. That's an astronomical return on investment. Kennedy remarks that:

For Gates and his cronies, the continent is a mass human experiment - with no control groups and no functional data collection systems - for shoddily tested, high-risk medical interventions.

Population stabilization

Kennedy writes that:

Gates’s fetish for reducing population is a family pedigree. His father, Bill Gates Sr., was a prominent corporate lawyer and civic leader in Seattle with a lifelong obsession for “population control."

He notes that:

By the way, I share Gates’s fear that if humanity persists in juxtaposing exponential population expansion atop linear resource growth, we will all land in a nightmarish Malthusian dystopia. I’m troubled, however, by his apparent comfort in using coercive and mendacious tactics to trick poor people into dangerous and unwanted contraceptive programs.

A global plan

Kennedy has said that his chapter on biowarfare is important. He notes that research on offensive bioweapons began during WWII under orders from Franklin Roosevelt. Much of their development would proceed under the guise of legitimate medical research.

Kennedy writes that regarding global totalitarianism:

In 2016, as senior vice president of strategic planning at, [Peter] Schwartz chaired a session at the World Government Summit titled “How governments get ready for the unthinkable.” Three thousand participants from 125 countries attended that year. Barack Obama delivered the keynote speech; Klaus Schwab, president of the World Economic Forum and the head of the World Bank, put a happy face on global crisis as a potential path to the cashless society so coveted by international banksters: “The Digital Currency: Is It the Way of the Future?”

Schwartz is chief futures officer for Salesforce, which markets a “vaccine management” software platform that allows governments to trace, monetize, track, and enforce global vaccine compliance.

Kennedy documents that:

Under the code name “SPARS Pandemic,” Gates presided over a sinister summer school for globalists, spooks, and technocrats in Baltimore. The panelists role-played strategies for co-opting the world’s most influential political institutions, subverting democratic governance, and positioning themselves as unelected rulers of the emerging authoritarian regime. They practiced techniques for ruthlessly controlling dissent, expression, and movement, and degrading civil rights, autonomy, and sovereignty.

The Gates simulation focused on deploying the usual psyops retinue of propaganda, surveillance, censorship, isolation, and political and social control to manage the pandemic. The official eighty-nine-page summary is a miracle of fortune-telling—an uncannily precise month-by-month prediction of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic as it actually unfolded.192 Looked at another way, when it erupted five years later, the 2020 COVID-19 contagion faithfully followed the SPARS blueprint. Practically the only thing Gates and his planners got wrong was the year.

Kennedy emphasizes:

We can no longer 'trust the experts' or follow their warped version of science. That’s what got us here… By calling on our moral courage, we can stop this march towards a global police state.

He concludes with the statement:

What I have described in the preceding chapters can seem overwhelming and dispiriting. The forced-vaccine campaign and other cruel actions by Dr. Fauci and his acolytes might seem “too big to fail.” But that is up to the citizens of our country. We can bow down and comply - take the jabs, wear the face coverings, show our digital passports on demand, submit to the tests, and salute our minders in the Bio-surveillance State.

Or we can say No. We have a choice, and it is not too late. COVID-19 is not the problem; it is a problem, one largely solvable with early treatments that are safe, effective, and inexpensive. The problem is endemic corruption in the medical-industrial complex, currently supported at every turn by mass-media companies.

Can anything good come from a Kennedy? by John Dale Dunn, American Thinker, December 15, 2021:

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. dissects identifies and exposes the evil influences that produced the COVID response and explains the danger of "regulatory capture" of government alphabet agencies and the globalist strategies that created the inappropriate and unprecedented COVID response. Kennedy exposes the mendacious nature of Bill Gates and Anthony Fauci in his ambitious and thorough 480-page book with more than two thousand references....

He reveals the development of the Fauci Empire that began with his manipulations during the HIV/AIDS era...

Kennedy reveals Bill Gates to be a narcissist monopolist megalomaniac who partnered with Fauci, a man with a similar personality disorder, to dominate international health care policy as a health care policy and epidemic-fighter übermensch. Effectively, Gates turned his penchant for monopoly from computer software to global public health....

There is a lot of ground to cover exposing the international pharma and biosecurity operations that surround Gates and Fauci and include the Deep State. To wit:

  • Using third-world countries as experimental populations and dumping grounds for pharma
  • Buying academic and media influence
  • Creating fact-checker organizations to promote the Gates pharma agenda
  • Taking advantage of the revenue influence of pharma on universities and media
  • Psy-ops projects to establish ways to influence and control populations — two decades of sixteen scenario-planning events

After reading about these, there should be nothing surprising about how quickly the world fell into lockstep in its response to COVID....

"In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.
