We’ve all just learned about FTX and CEO Sam Bankman-Fried, who lost $15B in one week and bankrupted his company as a result. It is an understatement to say that Bankman-Fried’s finances are “questionable.” He is the second largest funder of the Democrats, second only to George Soros, and Bankman-Fried used a very crafty money laundering scheme to do so. This CEO also funded Ukraine and lots of social justice and climate “causes” (scams).
Fox hosts Kayleigh McEnany and Emily Compagno pointed out that the scheme is so outrageous that even far-left organizations like the Daily Beast are calling it out.
Bankman-Fried had already pledged $1 billion to Democrats in 2024. A brief reminder that Democrats are the same party to accept donation money to sexual abuser Harvey Weinstein. Did Hillary ever give that money back? I don’t think she did.
But Bankman-Fried is not just funding the above. He also is involved in pandemic funding (to the shock of no one). The 2nd Smartest Guy in the World has a great substack and has been following FTX for a while now. He proves that FTX was directly funding fraudulent research.
This research is called the TOGETHER trial, described on their own website as an international collaboration that is “among the largest trials investigating the safety and effectiveness of repurposed therapies for COVID-19.” Naturally, this trial had the usual involvement from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
In May 2022, the FTX Foundation proudly issued a press release saying it was funding the trial’s global expansion, to the tune of $18 million. The FTX-provided money allowed the trial to expand to “South Africa, Rwanda, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the Bahamas, Pakistan, Vietnam, and Ghana.” As the press release says: “Pandemic preparedness is a priority of the FTX Foundation and reflected in their initial support of many projects in the space.”
On the same day as FTX’s funding commitment, trial investigators were awarded the Society for Clinical Trials (SCT) prestigious Trial of the Year Award to honor trials that best exemplify the SCT’s five key criteria. (By the way, trial investigators are from these institutions: Stanford University (USA), McMaster University (Canada), University of Witwatersrand (South Africa), Aga Khan University (Pakistan), University of Global Health Equity (Rwanda) and the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais (Brazil). And, there were two other charitable donors in addition to FTX and Bill and Melinda: Rainwater Charitable Foundation and Unitaid. Anyway, two of the SCT’s criteria are: improvements to humankind and it must provide for substantial and beneficial changes to health care.
The trial certainly met the second criteria by making substantial changes to healthcare. How? This is the seminal trial that provided worldwide guidance on COVID-19 therapeutics.In particular, Dr. Andrew Hill of Liverpool University was funded (mainly by Unitaid) to study ivermectin. Hill actually had a call with Dr. Tess Lawrie, Dr. Paul Marik, and Dr. Pierre Kory about the exciting ivermectin data he was seeing. Hill’s initial pre-print paper talked about ivermectin’s effect of reduced inflammation, shorter hospital stays and faster viral clearance. It also purported a 75 percent reduction of death with successful clinical resolution of the disease.
Then something happened. His study was rewritten with different conclusions. One example: Hill criticized other ivermectin papers for not being peer-reviewed, while his own paper was not peer reviewed. Don’t believe it? Both Dr. Kory and Dr. Marik wrote to Hill pleading with him to correct the paper. Dr. Lawrie appealed to Hill and recorded the Zoom call. Here is Dr. Tess Lawrie’s video that outlines it all.It is truly astounding, and once you listen to it, I don’t need to write another word.
What happened? Other voices were present in the paper. Which voices? Unitaid, WHO — all of them.
FTX is a scandal of enormous proportions. It was big enough before it was connected to COVID-19 and now it is huge. There will be upcoming trials, and that means legal discovery will take place. It will be interesting to see just how dark this dark money is. Remember this video the next time all these culprits ask for amnesty for their COVID-19 decisions.
