A whistleblower charging that a contract research company helping to carry out Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine trial last fall falsified data has responded to her former employer’s accusation that she is lying.
Article by Art Moore from our news partners at WND News Center.
Brook Jackson’s company, Ventavia Research Group, released a statement of denial, claiming “no part of her job responsibilities concerned the clinical trials at issue,” reported investigative journalist Maryanne Demasi.
But Jackson’s lawyer has served Ventavia with a cease-and-desist letter, pointing out she has documentation showing she was hired as a regional director by Ventavia on Sept. 7, 2020, to oversee the operations, recruitment and quality assurance of the company’s clinical trial sites. She came to the job with nearly two decades of experience in clinical trial co-ordination and management.
Leaked documents and the testimony of two former Ventavia employees corroborate claims by Jackson that were published earlier this month by the esteemed British Medical Journal. Jackson charged that during the pivotal Phase III trial, Ventavia falsified data, unblinded patients, employed inadequately trained vaccinators and was slow to follow up on reported adverse events.
Jackson said that after her company ignored her complaints, she emailed the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. On the same day she sent the email, she was fired.
After the report in The BMJ, the FDA and Australia’s counterpart TGA released statements declaring their full confidence in the Pfizer vaccine. That’s when Ventavia released a statement claiming Jackson had nothing to do with the Pfizer trials. Her attorney Robert Barnes served Ventavia with a letter demanding a public retraction and formal apology.
“This statement is false,” Barnes wrote. “This statement impugns the reputation of my client, Brook Jackson, and falsely implies she publicly misrepresented her work on the clinical trials.”
Jackson told Demasi there were multiple examples of “laboratory processing logs” filled in by staff that contained glaring inconsistencies and anomalies in specimen handling. Jackson has a document with a list of Ventavia’s outstanding “action items,” which include discussions with trial coordinators about serious breaches of data integrity.
She described a chaotic work environment embroiled with so many egregious issues that she called for an immediate halt to the recruitment of trial participants.
Finally, in September 2020, Ventavia agreed with Jackson and asked staff to compile a list of “common” quality control breaches to be reviewed. And the recruiting was paused. But text messages obtained by Jackson indicate Ventavia did not inform Pfizer of the reason for the pause, as required, and engaged in a cover-up.
“I feel like we need to say we met our committed number [of participants],” said one senior staffer. “Make it like it’s no big deal. I wouldn’t say one negative thing. I would keep it that we are in a perfect place.”
Jackson says the work environment became hostile when she raised her concerns with Ventavia. She was fired on the day she filed her formal complaint with the FDA, Sept. 25, 2020.
Demasi reports that despite the credible evidence of clinical trial misconduct, the FDA did not investigate the site. Jackson told Demasi the problems were pervasive and persistent, putting patients at risk and likely impacting data integrity.
“When you look at the whole picture, can we really trust the data that is coming from Ventavia? No,” she said.
Jackson noted that in the early stages of “Operation Warp Speed” under the Trump administration, there was a rush to recruit participants and get the trials underway in record time.
“There was no doubt that speed and haste were driving enrollments at Ventavia,” she said. “Pfizer’s race to be number one was driving enrollments, offering bonuses if they met enrollment expectations.”
Jackson said it raises the question, “If it happened in Ventavia, where else did it happen?”
Too Few Are Telling the Truth
Not long ago, conservative media was not beholden to anyone. Today, most sites are stuck on the Big Tech gravy train.
I’ll keep this short. The rise of Pandemic Panic Theater, massive voter fraud, and other “taboo” topics have neutered a majority of conservative news sites. You’ll notice they are very careful about what topics they tackle. Sure, they’ll attack Critical Race Theory, Antifa, and the Biden-Harris regime, but you won’t see them going after George Soros, Bill Gates, the World Economic Forum, or the Deep State, among others.
The reason is simple. They are beholden to Big Tech, and Big Tech doesn’t allow certain topics to be discussed or they’ll cut you off. Far too many conservative news outlets rely on Google, Facebook, and Twitter for the bulk of their traffic. They depend on big checks from Google ads to keep the sites running. I don’t necessarily hold it against them. We all do what we need to do to survive. I just wish more would do like we have, which is to cut out Big Tech altogether.
We don’t get Google checks. We don’t have Facebook or Twitter buttons on our stories. We don’t have a YouTube Channel (banned), and Instagram profile (never made one), or a TikTok (no thanks, CCO). We’re not perfect, but we’re doing everything we can to not owe anything to anyone… other than our readers. We owe YOU the truth. We owe YOU the facts that others won’t reveal about topics that others won’t tackle. And we owe America, this great land that allows us to take hold of these opportunities.
Like I said, I don’t hold other conservative sites under too much scrutiny over their choices. It’s easy for people to point fingers when we’re not the ones paying their bills or supporting their families. I just wish there were more who would break away. Today, only a handful of other major conservative news outlets have broken away from the Big Tech teat. Of course, we need help.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring proper news and opinions to the people is by donating. We appreciate everything, whether a dollar or $10,000. Anything brings us closer to a point of stability when we can hire writers, editors, and support staff to make the America First message louder. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal or Bitcoin as well. Bitcoin: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
Our network is currently comprised of nine sites:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Truth. Based. Media.
- Freedom First Network
- Based Underground
- Uncanceled News
- American Conservative Movement
- Conservative Playbook
- Our Gold Guy
We are also building partnerships with great conservative sites like The Liberty Daily and The Epoch Times to advance the message as loudly as possible, and we’re always looking for others with which to partner.
Also, we could use contributions of content. If you write or want to start writing and you share our patriotic, conservative, America First ideology, contact us. The contact form on this and all pages on the site goes directly to me.
Some of our content is spread across multiple sites. Other pieces of content are unique. We write most of what we post but we also draw from those willing to allow us to share their quality articles, videos, and podcasts. We collect the best content from fellow conservative sites that give us permission to republish them. We’re not ego-driven; I’d much rather post a properly attributed story written by experts like Dr. Joseph Mercola or Natural News than rewrite it like so many outlets like to do. We’re not here to take credit. We’re here to spread the truth.
While donations are the best way to help, you can also support us by buying through our sponsors:
- MyPillow: Use promo code “NOQ” to get up to 66% off AND you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
- Freedom Phone: Use promo code “MAGA” and get $50 off AND you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
- OurGoldGuy: Tell them we sent you in your request to buy gold and it will help us… AND (wait for it) you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
We know we could make a lot more money if we sold out like so many “conservative” publications out there. You won’t find Google ads on our site for a reason. Yes, they’re lucrative, but I don’t like getting paid by minions of Satan (I don’t like Google very much if you couldn’t tell).
Time is short. As the world spirals towards The Great Reset, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report and the other sites in the network going. Our promise is this: We will never sell out America. If that means we’re going to struggle for a while or even indefinitely, so be it. Integrity first. Truth first. America first.
Thank you and God Bless,
