Congress appropriated billions more for domestic and international bioweapon development and deployment.
Consolidated Appropriations Act, signed March 15, 2022. Six weeks ago.
Congress quietly inserted several pieces of the Cures 2.0 Act into the Consolidated Appropriations Act, which passed and was signed into law by President Biden on March 15, 2022 as PL 117-103. (1,068 pages). HR2471.
Title II covers Department of Health and Human Services programs, at pp. 393-426.
Through the law, Congress appropriated:
$1,274,678,000 for the Public Health and Social Services Emergency Fund(p. 416)
$780,000,000 for new domestic bioweapons production, classified as ‘security countermeasures’ under the Public Health Service Act as amended by 2004 Project Bioshield Act, 42 USC 247d-6b(c)(1)(B). (p. 417)
$845,000,000 to restock the Strategic National Stockpile of domestic bioweapons controlled by the CDC within HHS. The Strategic National Stockpile was established in 1998 during the Clinton Administration, as the National Pharmaceutical Stockpile. 42 USC 247d-6b(a). (p. 417)
$300,000,000 “to prepare for or respond to an influenza pandemic,” including federally-funded construction or renovation of privately-owned pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities, if the Secretary of Health and Human Services finds such construction or renovation necessary. (p. 417)
$1,000,000,000 to establish ARPA-H: Advanced Research Program Agency - Health, to conduct research and development of bioweapons misbranded as public health measures. (p. 417)
$3,880,000,000 to US Agency for International Development (US-AID) for programs mislabeled as ‘Global Health Programs,’ including immunization programs, HIV/AIDS programs, The GAVI Alliance [population-control zealot Bill Gates’ Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization] and a multilateral vaccine development partnership, for, among other projects, “experimental contraceptive drugs, devices and medical procedures.” p. 527-528.
One piece of the House Rules Committee Print 117-35 (a prior version of the Consolidated Appropriations Act) was pulled out of the bill and introduced separately on March 9, 2022, as HR-7007, Covid Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2022. (14 pages).
It hasn’t been passed yet, as far as I can tell.
When passed, it will provide another $10,600,000,000 federal appropriation for Covid-related bioweapon development and deployment to be spent through September 2025, including:
“up to $9,850,000,000 to Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority [BARDA, established by Congress 2006, and similar in function to the new ARPA-H] for advanced research and development, manufacturing, production, and purchase, at the discretion of the Secretary of Health and Human Services, of vaccines, therapeutics, diagnostics, and supplies.”
Summary of Cures 2.0 Act, as referred to committee Jan. 4, 2022.
Title I, covers “Long-Covid” research (burying injuries and deaths caused by injection of products marketed as Covid-19 vaccines by classifying them as Long-Covid); pandemic preparedness planning; public relations/psychological manipulation campaigns, including vaccination promotion; creation of an “immunization information system;” and establishment of a subscription model for federal research support and purchasing of novel anti-microbial drugs from pharmaceutical corporations.
Title II covers caregiver education programs.
Title III funds digital health technology and digital biomarker programs.
Title IV addresses Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
Side note: there’s a third major statute involved in the development of the American Domestic Bioterrorism Program, in addition to the two I’ve already been studying.
The 1938 Federal Food Drug and Cosmetics Act, through amendments mostly since 1983, has become the main framework for the weaponization of pharmaceutical products (drugs, devices and biologics) mislabeled and falsely advertised as diagnostics, therapeutics, treatments and vaccines.
The 1944 Public Health Service Act, through amendments since 1983, has weaponized federal biomedical research and product distribution programs and staff controlled by the Secretary of Health and Human Services.
The third major statute is the 1935 Social Security Act.
I’m just starting to explore this rabbit hole, but there’s a lot in it so far. Medicare, Medicaid and CHIP (Childrens Health Insurance Program) are among the federal authorization and funding pathways through which ‘breakthrough’ devices and drugs, fast-track products, products eligible for accelerated approval and other FDA-classified products are developed, manufactured and used on humans.
Amendments to SSA since 1983 and pending, further erode safety protections for human subjects, patients, consumers, while expanding the novel drug and device/bioweapon classes eligible for fast-tracked federal research and deployment funding within the Medicare/Medicaid/CHIP programs.
Back to the pending Cures 2.0 Act.
Title V sets up the Advanced Research Projects Agency - Health (ARPA-H), analogous to DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency), but focused, similar to BARDA (Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority) on research and development of bioweapons classified as public health measures.
That’s the same ARPA-H agency that the Consolidated Appropriations Act, passed by Congress and signed into law by President Biden on March 15, 2022, has now established and funded with $1 billion in start-up money.
The Public Health and Social Services Emergency Fund (PHSSEF) is a Secretary of Health and Human Services slush fund similar to the original Public Health Emergency Fund (PHEF) established in 1983 and apparently not funded after FY1999, and drawn down to a zero balance by 2012.
Instead, it was in a separate Health and Human Services section (see 119 Stat. 2786) setting up an initial $3,300,000,000 budget, to be used for upgrading state and local capacity; stocking the Strategic National Stockpile, research and development of influenza vaccines, and other projects.
It’s not clear to me when Congress authorized establishment of the fund; it looks like Congress just started putting money into it in 2005, and has continued to add more over the years.
