US awards $1.6 billion to Novavax for COVID-19 vaccine research and development
Great, right? New player on the Big Pharma block working on Covid vaccine with your tax dollars.
Only one problem, though. Who knew what, when?
Look at Novovax' meteoric rise in the stock market. Before Covid supposedly knocked out the world, you could pick up NVAX stock for a mere couple of bucks per share. Suddenly, three months later, it's worth $100/share. What happened. And when?
Look at the chart:
Clearly, the stock skyrocketed from $80 to $100 per share literally overnight after the announcement of the $1.6 Billion dollar grant from Uncle Sam was announced on July 7th, 2020.
This is when the rest of us learned about it, but what was going on before that?
Sometime in mid-May 2020, the stock doubled on no news and no new drugs in development. Now, I don't want to conjecture or make accusations, but could that be when the government insiders started talking about grants to Big Pharma, and when they coincidentally had their offshore companies start buying up the stock. What caused it to double overnight?
Since we already have the Department of Justice investigating insider trading and profiteering from Covid within the halls of Congress, should they add this one to the list. A lot of people just got rich off this stock going up 20x in 3 short months.
Is this how government works for the people? Is this why all politicians are millionaires? Maybe this is why people go through the hell of getting elected in the first place, so they can be privy to these deals. My only complaint is we're not allowed in.
As Gordon Gekko pointed out, "If you're not on the inside, you're on the outside." We're all clearly on the outside. While people are out toppling statues, Big Pharma and Big Government and the deep state insiders are all laughing on their way to the virtual bank.
I would say wake up and stop fighting amongst yourselves over the scraps that fall off the government table, but I know it's pointless. This is the way it has always been and always will be, so I take Gekko's advice and try to get inside and find out what is really going on. I try to get a seat at the table while the game is being played. 99% of people don't even know this game is happening, let alone try to get into it. But the big boys know, and they're taking you to the cleaners. You're never going to get ahead in this economy when you're a wage slave or out fighting in the streets.
You think pulling down statues is going to improve your financial situation. You think you're going to thrive under socialist handouts from the same insiders who are making themselves rich at your expense. You're not even in the game.
Be like Gekko.
