There are many ways for the CDC and FDA to regain the trust of Americans. This article lists 20 ways. I was not asked to speak at the conference, so I thought I’d prepare my list for people who attend. 20 ideas for how to restore trust 1. Stop lying to people 2. Stop ignoring people who disagree with you: Answer questions/engage in meaningful dialog from people who disagree with you 3. Support data transparency: Show us all the data that you’ve been hiding instead of making us spend millions in lawsuits to release it (v-safe data for example). Don’t force us to use FOIA to have you release the

Personnel is everything. The present personnel in these agencies cannot be trusted. Trust will never be restored for the current generation. That will take new personnel, decades, and a new generation.

4. Come clean about the lies and deceptions of the present and past. 5. Fire those that have been doing the misleading. 6. Include the NIH along with the CDC and FDA. 7. Stop the revolving door between the pharmaceutical industry and the regulators.

Not really possible, at least for me. Government is force, and human nature being what it is, government is therefore corrupt. It should be reduced to as small a size as possible so that the inevitable corruption that comes with it has the least impact on its citizens.

It cannot be done. Both agencies have, along with the FBI and CIA... oh... and DOT have shown incompetence on a massive level with the CDC and FDA bordering on malevolent intent. As far as I know, the CDC and FDA are trusted by nobody save one guy who lives in Iowa.

There is no reason for the federal government to use tax dollars to fund any type of research. Let the universities with their huge endowments invest in their own research. Let the private market invest.

The FDA was founded on a lie. After Upton Sinclair wrote “The Jungle” in 1906, the Roosevelt administration established the FDA to police the food and drug industries, and battle some of the things described in Sinclair’s novel. Trouble is, it was all B.S., as Sinclair admitted later in his life - he’d made it all up. He was an ardent Socialist. It’s .time to disband the FDA and the CDC, and question whether we need either one of them. Hint: we don’t.

It can't be done. The price for trust is the dissolution of those revolving doors and instituting new offices guaranteed to do the work without influence from Big Pharma or Big Government. But we know that simply will not happen.

The FOIA was supposed to mean all government-generated documents/information, except a small subset of classified stuff, are freely available to all citizens. Pretty much every agency has taken it to mean that no information is available unless you spend lots of money to sue for it under the FOIA.

While it may look like the United States is being tough and forceful in Ukraine, the reverse is true. The US is showing incredible weakness, and it is wearing it on its sleeve. Let's start with Ukraine. The US has gone all out to try and help Ukraine win a victory over the Russians. The Biden administration wants this to happen for two reasons: to show that Biden is not a wimp and won't cut and run like he did in Afghanistan and that he wants to "strengthen" NATO by eventually putting a NATO army in Ukraine.
Leonardo da Vinci, slavery’s ubiquity,

Few would dispute Leonardo da Vinci’s preeminence as one of the top thinkers and artists of the Renaissance era. According to an Italian professor, da Vinci may have been only half-Italian. The professor contends that da Vinci’s mother may have been a slave from the Circassia region in what is now Russia. That fact is worth contemplating when we think about the left’s desperation to do away with Christianity, fossil fuel, and capitalism. (Snip) Whether this revised history is correct or not, it’s useful to remind all of us that slavery was not a uniquely American institution. It was ubiquitous in the pre-modern world.

The brutalism of government during the last three years was anomalous in western democracies. First of all, it was irrational, it contravened common sense, which almost everyone possesses, and it destroyed millions of household economies and small businesses. It impoverished and starved a billion people in the developing world. It killed the old, brutally, refusing them affection in their last days. (Snip) But this niggled at me. Who drew up the plan, instituted it in every country, bullied every citizenry, devised the advertising, instituted the protocols? What operation has that level of power, of discipline? Only one answer: McKinsey. McKinsey innovated and executed the whole damned thing.

Escape from New York may be a work of fiction no longer. In El Salvador, the government plans to crush crime by opening a new prison that is quite literally the size of a city. Two thousand suspected gang members have been moved to a new mega-prison in El Salvador, built as part of President Nayib Bukele’s self-proclaimed “war on crime.” … The mega-prison, officially called the Center for the Confinement of Terrorism (CECOT), was built to hold 40,000 prisoners. Bukele unveiled the center in January, saying it is “a fundamental piece to completely win the war against gangs.” The prisoners transferred to the CECOT are reportedly members
The Untold Story of Racial Classification

Americans have been living with the idiosyncrasies of arbitrary racial classifications for almost five decades. These are now deeply entrenched and serve to drive political agendas while understandably fomenting divisiveness and resentment. That is the subject of David E. Bernstein’s impeccably researched book Classified: The Untold Story of Racial Classification in America. In his review of the history of American racial classification, Bernstein, a professor of law at George Mason University, brings clarity to the contentious discrimination debate which began in earnest with the Statistical Directive 15 of the Office of Management and Budget of 1977, creating five inconsistent and haphazard racial categories: American Indian or Alaskan Native; Asian or

There is no way to avoid this moment. The formal letter of apology. From me. To Conservatives and to those who “put America first” everywhere. It’s tempting to sweep this confrontation with my own gullibility under the rug — to “move on” without every acknowledging that I was duped, and that as a result I made mistakes in judgement, and that these mistakes hurt millions of other people like you all, in existential ways. (Snip) The proximate cause of this letter of apology is the airing, two nights ago, of excepts from tens of thousands of hours of security camera footage from the United States Capitol taken on Jan 6, 2021.

However, this week NBC News chief international correspondent Keir Simmons went to Sevastopol, surrounded by a significant Russian military presence given it is home to the Russian Navy's Black Sea Fleet, and in a live segment admitted that it's not at all realistic Zelensky and Ukrainian forces can ever hope to take Crimea. This is especially as the "the people there... view themselves as Russian." Simmons noted that "This is the closest that any US news crew has got to the Russian Black Sea Fleet

Ron DeSantis attacked 'Soros-funded' prosecutor Alvin Bragg for creating a 'manufactured circus' in his first comments on rumors Donald Trump will be indicted. The Florida governor made the comments Monday after Trump's inner circle criticized him for staying silent on claims the former president will be arrested in the Stormy Daniels hush money case on Tuesday. It offers a dilemma to Trump's likely rivals for the Republican 2024 nomination: Do they take the opportunity to bash the former president for his indiscretions, or do they steer clear for fear of alienating the vocal, restless party base?

"Thankfully, I am fully vaccinated and boosted and only experiencing minor symptoms," Durbin said in a tweet. The Illinois Democrat said he would follow Center for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines, which call for five days of quarantine for those who test positive. Two other Democrats, Senators Dianne Feinstein and John Fetterman, have been absent from the Senate for health reasons. Senate

He’s trying to virtue signal for his base. I’ve got real issues I got to deal with here in the state of Florida.”

Donald Trump has characterized his impending arrest this week as a political vendetta, and has urged his supporters to take to the streets in protest. I agree with him that it’s a political vendetta, but disagree about taking to the streets. It is indeed a nakedly political act by the Manhattan District Attorney. Numerous other prosecutors including sophisticated federal prosecutors have reviewed this same evidence, and have declined to pursue this case. Rightly so. It’s a lousy case. The legal theory is a stretch. Moreover, the prosecution’s fact witnesses are not credible.

"More importantly is the message this sends to all Black women, men and children that you deserve to be comfortable wearing your natural hair at school and in the workplace without being perceived as unprofessional or suffering other negative consequences," she said.

Stunningly, the Polish Ambassador to France Jan Emeryk Rościszewski said yesterday: “Either Ukraine will defend its independence today, or we will be forced to enter into this conflict,” sending a clear message that NATO will enter the war against Russia if Ukraine loses ground. Rościszewski essentially said the quiet part out loud, and that public statement immediately caused the NATO allies to recoil. The EU NATO allies were not recoiling due to the substance of what he said, but rather because he said it publicly. Keep in mind, Jan Emeryk Rościszewski has been Poland’s Ambassador to France for about a year, and before that he was the Chairman of
