“The past was erased, the erasure was forgotten, the lie became truth.” 1984, George Orwell
Under the guise of safety (read: control) and fueled by a narrative that COVID-19 is a pandemic devastating the world, the U.S. government has issued a veritable witch hunt against online health professionals and natural ancient remedies like silver, vitamin C, magnesium, and mineral salts (MMS).
Headed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Operation Quack Hack is cyberstalking and softly terrorizing hundreds of doctors and health professionals who actually care about bolstering people’s health. And yes, “Operation Quack Hack” is the actual name the FDA has given this operation.
They laugh. We pay.
While the groundwork for this pharmaceutical and governmental overreach started long ago with the advent of Rockefeller medicine, the “Rona Regime” gets carte blanche. It is remarkable to consider that even the CDC data illustrates this virus is less fatal than the flu, with a 99.7% recovery rate.
Quack Hack in full effect
When I reached out to the FDA via email, Press Officer Jeremy Kahn confirmed that “Operation Quack Hack” was launched in March 2020 in response to “scammers on the internet selling products that fraudulently claim to mitigate, prevent, treat, diagnose or cure COVID-19 in violation of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.” I was unable to locate a press release announcing this particular Covid-related “effort.”
Kahn also educated me as to how the FDA came up with the name “Quack Hack.”
“People who peddle false cures, medical charlatans, are commonly referred to a ‘quacks.’ Here, ‘hack’ was meant to refer to using various approaches to disrupt the activities of those who are selling false cures on the internet.”
Um, Excuse me? I wondered.
Professionals in the health space know NOT to use the “C” word, which in this case is “Cure.” Most providers openly declare their products will not cure COVID-19, but now the FDA frowns upon words like “treat” or “prevent” used in the same sentence as “coronavirus.” Such a transgression is enough to trigger warning letters.
As a result of what can be described as arguable attacks, some who have been targeted have suffered strokes, had their homes raided, their sons arrested, and woken up to find their company website disabled at the server level, a business of twenty-plus years gone in a flash (more horrid details later).
Quack Hack is headed by the Center for Drug Evaluation (CDER), a division of the FDA that regulates over-the-counter and prescription drugs, including biological therapeutics and generic drugs. CDER reportedly “performs an essential public health task by making sure that safe and effective drugs are available to improve the health of people in the United States.”
CDER employs around 1,300 employees in “review teams” that evaluate and approve new drugs. Additionally, CDER features a “safety team” with 72 employees to determine whether new drugs are unsafe or present risks not disclosed in the product’s labeling. CDER was run by Dr. Janet Woodcock before she went on this May to lead the “therapeutic” initiative at Operation Warp Speed.
The FDA’s overall budget for approving, labeling, and monitoring drugs is roughly $290 million per year. Of that, the CDER’s safety team monitors the effects of more than 3,000 prescription drugs on 200 million people with a budget of about $15 million a year.
CDER, currently run by Acting Director Dr. Patrizia Cavazzoni, oversees more than just medicines. For example, they consider fluoride toothpaste, antiperspirants, dandruff shampoos, and sunscreens as “drugs.” Who knew? And when did they start deeming nutrients like vitamin C as “drugs”?
Meanwhile, a kitchen sink of agencies collaborates on catching “quacks,” including the Cybercrime Investigations Unit and the Office of Regulatory Affairs Health Fraud Team within the FDA’s Office of Regulatory Affairs, as well as the Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).
“Right now, what is the FTC doing to these quacks, to these fake scammers who are trying to take advantage of people in a desperate situation? Nothing,” Schumer said. “A slap on the wrist. They send them a so-called warning letter that has no consequence. You can take this warning letter and rip it up and put it in the garbage.”
It’s a common tactic: Have some public figure go “tsk, tsk” to justify the agency’s Gestapo measures.
