Big Pharma Make Billions From COVID Vaccines: “Follow The Money!”

We’ve all heard that the pharmaceutical companies manufacturing and selling COVID-19 vaccines have made billions of dollars in the last year. We’ve also realized that every dime of profit they made has come from the pockets of American taxpayers. That’s right: no one has had to pay for a vaccination — at least directly. But indirectly, the Federal Government has paid your vaccination charge for you. It’s all taxpayer-funded.

“That sounds to me like a money-making operation for Pfizer,” Trump… told Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo. “Think of the money involved. An extra shot … How good a business is that? If you’re a pure businessman, you’d say, ‘you know what, let’s give them another shot….”

“You wouldn’t think you would need a booster,” Trump said. “You know, when these first came out, they were good for life. Then they were good for a year or two. And I could see the writing on the wall, I could see the dollar signs in their eyes of that guy that runs Pfizer.”

Eliza Relman “Trump dismisses COVID-19 booster shots as a ‘money-making operation’ for Pfizer”  August 18, 2021

“I do think that Pfizer…I will say this, the FDA is bureaucratically run, would have taken five years to get it approved, would have never even had it if it weren’t for me. And I learned things. The FDA is virtually controlled by Pfizer. Pfizer has control, not Johnson and Johnson, not Moderna, but Pfizer has control over the FDA. It’s not a good thing.” President Donald J. Trump on the “Hugh Hewitt Show” August 26, 2021.

President Trump appears to be unhappy with the pharmaceutical company Pfizer. Fair enough. An obvious question I asked myself was, “Who controls Pfizer?” I searched for the top shareholders of Pfizer with my browser and found that the top three shareholders in Pfizer are: The Vanguard Group Inc., Blackrock Inc., and State Street Corporation.

Then I checked to see who the top shareholder in Blackrock Inc. is, and the answer is The Vanguard Group Inc.

  • BlackRock, itself is…owned by shareholders. Who are those shareholders? We come to a strange conclusion. The biggest shareholder is Vanguard. But now [it] gets murky. Vanguard is a private company and we cannot see who the shareholders are. Bill Sardi
  • Vanguard is also the top shareholder in State Street Corp.

Things were starting to look a little dodgy by this point, but I’m a free-market capitalist, so I figured “Vanguard’s making some big bucks, good for them.”

Then I researched the top shareholders in Johnson & Johnson and found that the top three are: The Vanguard Group Inc., Blackrock Inc., and State Street Corp.  And Johnson & Johnson controls a lot of brands.

Things were starting to look more than a little sketchy to me now, so I started researching all sorts of different companies – and I found the same names kept popping up: The Vanguard Group Inc., Blackrock Inc., and State Street Corp.

To be sure, other corporations appeared, such as Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, and Berkshire Hathaway, for example – but it turns out that among the top shareholders of Morgan Stanley Goldman Sachs, and Berkshire Hathaway are, you guessed it in one: The Vanguard Group Inc., Blackrock Inc., and State Street Corp.

The Vanguard Group, Blackrock, and State Street are listed among the top two or three shareholders in Microsoft, Apple, Amazon, EXXON/MobilUS Steel, The Walt Disney Company (includes ABC TV among numerous other properties),  Ford Motor CompanyTesla, AT&T (includes HBO, CNN, Warner Bros.),  VerizonFox Corp. Comcast, ViacomCBS Inc., United Airlines, Chevron Corp., General Dynamics Corp. (includes Gulfstream Aerospace), FedEx, Uber, PayPal, eBay, Alphabet Inc. (Google, Youtube), General Electric, Facebook, Twitter, Tyson Foods, Pepsico, Coca-Cola, Raytheon, Boeing, Lockheed Martin, SeaWorld, Six Flags, General Motors, Mastercard, Visa, American Express, Wells Fargo, Bank of America, JP Morgan/Chase, Unilever (Ben & Jerry’s ice cream among other things), The New York Times, Southwest Airlines, Delta Air Lines, BP, General Mills (lots of brand names), Proctor & Gamble, Dell, Hewlett Packard, Hasbro, Mattel, Sturm Ruger, DuPont, Hormel Foods, Volkswagen (includes Porsche, Audi, and Lamborghini)….

Well, you get the idea, right?  (And believe me, the above list is only a partial list – the tip of the iceberg).  If you really want to get lost in the rabbit warren, you can start connecting the dots between which shareholders control which companies, which control what other companies, and so on.  Knock yourself out, but try not to get a headache while you’re at it.

Concern at this point is who exactly owns The Vanguard Group Inc., who are the folks who are profiting from all these shares?  Ah, that’s the question, isn’t it?

…the stocks of the world’s largest corporations are owned by the same institutional investors. They all own each other. This means that “competing” brands, like Coke and Pepsi aren’t really competitors at all, since their stock is owned by exactly the same investment companies, investment funds, insurance companies, banks, and in some cases, governments. This is the case, across all industries. As [the Dutch Group Vrouwen Voor Vrijheid (Women for Freedom)] says:

“The smaller investors are owned by larger investors. Those are owned by even bigger investors. The visible top of this pyramid shows only two companies whose names we have often seen…they are Vanguard and BlackRock. The power of these two companies is beyond your imagination. Not only do they own a large part of the stocks of nearly all big companies but also the stocks of the investors in those companies. This gives them a complete monopoly.

A Bloomberg report states that both these companies in the year 2028, together will have investments in the amount of 20 trillion dollars. That means that they will own almost everything.

Bill Sardi “Who Runs The World? Blackrock and Vanguard

I love capitalism, and consider it to be, warts and all, the best and most equitable form of economics ever invented.  But I detest crony capitalism and am no fan of monopolies.

Might be that We the People need a new “Trust Buster” like Teddy Roosevelt to ride into town and clean house.  Just saying.

We can do nothing of good in the way of regulating and supervising these corporations until we fix clearly in our minds that we are not attacking the corporations, but endeavoring to do away with any evil in them. We are not hostile to them; we are merely determined that they shall be so handled as to subserve the public good. We draw the line against misconduct, not against wealth. President Theodore Roosevelt


We at TruthNewsNetwork have consistently instructed all who question “Who, Why, and What?” about anything to do with politics or any issues that involve the U.S. political system in any way need to answer that question by doing one thing each time it’s asked: “Follow the Money.” The Bible taught us that “the love of money is the root of all evil.” That doesn’t mean that “money” is evil. But the “love of money” is.

As Roger Stone told our “TNN Live!” audience last Friday, Washington is no longer about JUST money. It feeds now totally on Power. With Power, everything is “gettable” — including money.

Now that we know that not only was there some type of collusion at the top by those responsible for the development of these so-called vaccines, the above information certainly portends a “probability” that there are common shareholders in The Vanguard Group, Blackrock, and State Street.

Hmm…Can you think of any names that might fit there?

I’ll not give you an answer to that question today. But, we’re digging and asking questions. It’s doubtful that those complicit would ever allow their names to be easily included in any corporate documentation. But there usually are common ties behind the scenes: Lawyers, law firms, accountants and their firms, and even investment companies.

Let’s see what we can dig up.

  1. Right on brother. I have had this belief before but never to this extent. It is almost impossible to understand how complex and corrupt things are these days.
