Under the guise of safety (read: control), and fueled by a narrative that COVID-19 is a pandemic devastating the world, the United States 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’s remarkable to consider that even the CDC data illustrates this virus is less fatal than the flu, with a 99.7 percent 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?
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, physicians and small businesses owners who’ve 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).
Center For Drug Evaluation
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).
Controlling A Narrative
Some participants apparently have not been strict enough. According to Democrat Sen. Chuck Schumer, the FTC, for instance, needs to take the gloves off and “crackdown.”
“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 says. “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.
The FTC told USA TODAY that it has taken aggressive action against marketers who want to take advantage of the anxiety caused by the current health crisis. “We have done so to prevent consumer injury. There is no other motivation.”
When I asked FDA’s Khan whether he can elaborate on how exactly the Department of Justice fits in with the FDA, he pointed me to an FDA link to the Office of the Chief Counsel which reads in part:
The Office of the Chief Counsel (OCC), which is the Food and Drug Division of the HHS Office of the General Counsel, is composed of litigators, counselors, and support staff. Litigators handle both civil and criminal enforcement cases and defend challenges to provisions of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FDCA), the implementing regulations, and FDA policies, initiatives, and decisions. . . .The litigators frequently work closely with senior officials at the Department of Justice and play an active role in all of FDA’s cases, including matters before the United States District Courts, the Courts of Appeal, and the United States Supreme Court.
“The DOJ basically does the FDA’s dirty work,” Mark Grenon of Genesis II Church told me before being imprisoned in a Colombian jail in early August. Incidentally, Grenon was vaccine-injured and developed Guillain-Barre syndrome after getting a “free” shot in high school.
Critics like Grenon agree that COVID-19 is being used as a dragnet to further justify the encroachment on our health and natural remedies by government organizations such as the FDA, HHS, WHO, NIH, and other three-letter agencies. When was the last time the COVID-19 Task Force reminded you to get fresh air, sun, eat real organic food, exercise, and bolster your immune system?
Unfortunately, it appears the powers-that-be are dead-set on enforcing their edicts against anyone promoting anything that might compete with the Operation Warp Speed COVID vaccines. Apparently, the medical mafia will even resort to arguably illegal means to do so.
“The healthcare system in this country is rigged against inexpensive, safe, and effective natural remedies in favor of expensive pharmaceutical drugs,” Clark Hansen, a naturopathic medical doctor in Arizona, told USA TODAY.
“The US medical system won’t ignore a treatment that is patentable and can provide a multi-billion profit for some giant healthcare company.”
As an example of what products interest the FDA, consider that one of their latest targets is the liver supplement N-acetyl cysteine (NAC). What they do not tell you is that NAC is being trialed as a treatment for COVID-19. If they are successful, the pharma companies involved with the trials will patent NAC for the specific application to COVID-19. As patent owners, they will then be free to “help” the FDA pursue “rogue” supplement sellers of NAC.
As if the Rona was not damaging enough to small businesses, Quack Hack has further compounded health-oriented outfits.
Killing Small Business
“Imagine being unable to process credit cards or advertise on Facebook,” says Ms. Silver, who used a pseudonym for fear of further persecution. “If this is what the FDA can do with one letter, it frightens me what else they are able to do to the companies who mount an effort against them. I am so afraid of what I can say and cannot say—and the repercussions of stepping over that invisible and moving line of legality. But I’m mad as hell!”
By the way, the lockdown’s justification was to “protect our health.” But if masses of people lose their health insurance and homes—becoming homeless, will the impact of that be less than COVID-19, a “disease” which lasts on average two weeks and that, for most people, resembles a mild-to-moderate case of the flu?
President Trump warned, “The cure can’t be worse than the disease.”
More than 100,000 small businesses—albeit not all health-oriented—were recorded to have permanently closed since March 2020 due to the coronavirus.
