On February 14, I flew to Canberra with Drs. McCullough and Kory to meet with members of the Australian Parliament. Our host and escort was Senator Ralph Babet of the United Australia Party, who has been a stalwart supporter of medical and constitutional liberty. Our primary objective was to discuss with Australian legislators our growing concerns about the safety of the Pfizer-BioNTech mRNA gene transfer injections.
Almost as a rule, the Senators and MPs who agreed to meet our little delegation were sympathetic to our cause, but they were a small minority. Only one MP who advocates injecting the Australian people with the Pfizer BioNTech product agreed to meet us.
As it was a private meeting, I won’t mention his name. Suffice to say, his sentiments about the product are probably representative of those held by the majority of Australian MPs.
I asked him two questions:
1). Given that the majority of Australians were infected with SARS-CoV-2 AFTER the mass rollout of the Pfizer BioNTech product, are you disappointed with the product’s performance?
2). On what representations of the product did you base your advocacy for injecting all Australians with it?
To question 1). he answered that—while he acknowledged that the product did not prevent infection and transmission—he was confident it prevents hospitalizations and deaths. He didn’t explain why he believed this, and when Dr. McCullough pressed him to state his grounds for believing it, he said he didn’t wish to discuss it.
To question 2.) he answered that he trusted that the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) had thoroughly examined Pfizer’s representations of its product.
In spite of our conversation being somewhat perfunctory, it nevertheless augmented my growing suspicion that the majority of Australian MPs relied entirely on the TGA’s assessment of the product.
How exactly did the TGA go about evaluating the Pfizer-BioNTech product? Did the agency review Pfizer’s post-marketing data (obtained by American plaintiff’s attorney Aaron Siri’s contested FOIA request) showing 1223 deaths reported within 90 days of receiving the injections?
