Florida Supreme Court Green Lights DeSantis’ Request for Covid Vaccine Grand Jury

Florida Supreme Court Green Lights DeSantis’ Request for Covid Vaccine Grand Jury

Dr. Jay Bhattacharya has been invited to be part of a special advisory panel organized by Florida Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo.

A little over a week ago, I reported that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis had petitioned the state Supreme Court to form a grand jury to review the safety of mRNA covid vaccines and the pandemic policies put forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The Florida Supreme Court gave DeSantis an early Christmas present by green-lighting the petition.

The Florida Supreme Court signed off Thursday on Gov. Ron DeSantis’ request to impanel a grand jury to investigate COVID-19 vaccine manufacturers for potential wrongdoing.

In DeSantis’ petition to ​establish​ the grand jury, he argued that a Florida Department of Health analysis “found an increase in the relative incidence of cardiac-related deaths among males 18-39 years old within 28 days following mRNA vaccination.”​

Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna are the two manufacturers of mRNA COVID-19 vaccines.

“A statewide grand jury shall be promptly impaneled for a term of twelve calendar months, to run from the date of impanelment, with jurisdiction throughout the State of Florida, to investigate crime, return indictments, make presentments, and otherwise perform all functions of a grand jury with regard to the offenses stated herein,” the court order read.

Legal Insurrection readers may recall that Great Barrington Declaration author and Stanford School of Medicine Professor Jay Bhattacharya was invited by Twitter CEO Elon Musk to review the Twitter Files on Covid.

He has also been invited to be part of a special advisory panel organized by Florida Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo.

In addition to the petition for a grand jury, DeSantis announced the creation of a new health advisory committee in the state, called the Public Health Integrity Committee, to be led by Ladapo, with board members to include:

  • Jay Bhattacharya, MD, PhD
  • Martin Kuldorff, PhD
  • Tracy Beth Høeg, MD, PhD
  • Joseph Fraiman, MD
  • Christine Stabell Benn, MD, PhD
  • Bret Weinstein, PhD
  • Steven Templeton, PhD

Florida’s surgeon general announced that the University of Florida will be assisting him in researching the effects of the covid vaccination.

The Florida grand jury will convene for a year.

DeSantis’ request argues that pharmaceutical companies had a financial interest in creating a climate in which people believed that getting a coronavirus vaccine would ensure they couldn’t spread the virus to others.

Statewide grand juries, usually comprised of 18 people, can investigate criminal activity and issue indictments but also examine systemic problems in Florida and make recommendations. Recent panels have tackled immigration issues and school safety.

The grand jury will meet for one year.

Between the Twitter files and the new research, it will be fascinating to compare the findings to the original covid claims a year from now.

I’m sure everyone involved from Pharma and the FDA/CDC/etc. will refuse to testify to prevent harm to their jobs and pensions national health and security. The DOJ will agree

    No, Pfizer/BioNTech and the rest will simply claim that all relevant information is “proprietary trade secrets” and refuse to release it to the grand jury or they’ll simply claim they need to redact any PII that the reports/information might contain and that will take at least 18 months to do and just outwait the FL grand jury.

    And if you don’t believe me that they’ll stonewall the entire process you must remember Big Pharma requested that the FDA seal all that information for the next 75 years. And if that isn’t an admission that they knew exactly what serious negative side-effects and/orconsequences these mRNA serums (won’t call them vaccines because they aren’t) had then I don’t know what does.

      Louis K. Bonham in reply to Otto Kringelein. | December 26, 2022 at 6:41 pm

      Uhhhh . . . no.

      An assertion of a trade secret is not a basis to resist a grand jury subpoena. And in a high profile case like this, there *will* be contempt moves if they refuse to obey a court order compelling disclosure, a-la “Don’t want to answer/produce documents? Go directly to jail until you comply.”

      For that matter, even legitimate “Crown Jewels” trade secrets like source code, industrial processes, etc. are routinely required to be produced in civil litigation — typically under protective orders that strictly limit who sees it and exactly what they can do with it. Super secret stuff is usually “attorneys eyes only.” (My practice is primarily intellectual property litigation, and I deal with this every day.)

All vaccines kill people. It’s a “public choice” to make them available or required when the lives saved sufficiently exceed the lives lost from widespread use of them.

Owing to their killing people, nobody would make the vaccines without immunity from wrongful death lawsuits – perhaps they could cover actual damages but not punitive damages. So vaccine manufacturers get immunity from lawsuits, in order that somebody makes the vaccines. They’re still liable for defects in manufacture though.

In this case the vaccines actually worked – on the virus it was designed for (In June 2021 that virus was practically gone). The vendetta here will mostly work to ensure that nobody wants to manufacture vaccines for the next pandemic, just to be caught in between the left and a vengeful right.

Basically it just proves the DeSantis is the scoundrel that he seems to be.

    I love the “required” weasil words. Authoritarians like yourself always think that people are too stupid to make their own decisions. This comment is a disgusting argument following along the lines of you have to break a few eggs to make an omelet. It is always seems to pop up when heavy emotions are involved and fear is one of those.

    It is always interesting to me that people that advocate for this are never the broken eggs and work really hard for an opaqueness that ensures that poor decision making thereby fulfilling their prophecy of stupid ignorant people.

    SMDH at how disgusting this comment really is. Even gold paint can’t make this look like any other turd than what it is.

    “It’s a “public choice” to make them available or required when the lives saved sufficiently exceed the lives lost from widespread use of them.”

    But the data required to make that determination wasn’t available when the EUAs were issued, so this was a Hobson’s choice. These weren’t “vaccines” in the traditional definition. Perhaps for the next pandemic, Big Pharma and Big Gov’t will take the proper time to fully test the next “miracle cure” before foisting it on a misinformed, unwitting pubic.

    parthos in reply to rhhardin. | December 25, 2022 at 3:59 pm

    Umm, that’s kinda the point. They didn’t “work.” And Pfizer stopped the placebo controlled studies and unblinded them so it couldn’t be found out. Many other vaccines have been withdrawn from the market with a tiny fraction of the morbidity and mortality caused by these pharmaceutical mRNA injections.

    Wow, could your post possibly be more full of shit? Are you familiar with the concept of ‘informed consent?’ How about the normal FDA approval process for vaccines which involves double-blind trials? Hell, how about the very definition of the word ‘vaccine’ which was changed mid-stream to accommodate this abomination?

    After taking the J&J vaccine (remember, the one they pulled) because of blood clots) my blood pressure spiked over 80 points and I suffered a stroke. Thankfully it was mild, “only” resulting in a loss of sensation on my right side that slowly returned, though I’ll likely have a strange pins-and-needles feeling for the rest of my life. I now have to take powerful blood pressure meds that mess with my head. But hey, at least I didn’t get COVID.

    (Spoiler Alert: I still ended up getting COVID, less than six months later.)

    My brother got the Moderna series. The first shot made him sick as a dog, the second put him in the hospital for four days. But I’m sure it was just coincidence, right? But hey, at least he didn’t end up getting COVID.

    (Spoiler alert: He still ended up getting COVID.)

    The scoundrel here is you, carrying water for these drug companies and their barely-tested vaccines. No, the vaccines didn’t actually work. And if those pharma companies don’t want to be sued into the depths of hell they’d better TEST their products first. Me, I’m never trusting them again.

    “Basically it just proves the (did you mean that?) DeSantis is the scoundrel that he seems to be.”

    Based on exactly what? It was later proven that Florida, under DeSantis’ direction, was the most successful state for vanquishing the Wuhan flu. If libtard Cuomo in charge in Florida, we would have had thousands if not millions of people in nursing homes dead.

    “just to be caught in between the left and a vengeful right.”

    Ahem …..You’ve made a HUGE mistake: The libtards have proven themselves to not only be beyond ignorant, but are the most vengeful people on Planet Earth. Look to any place they have seized control (thanks to Dominion so called *voting machines*,among many other factors) and everything they do with their corrupt control brings down the whole stinking area. The cherry on the icing of this bravo siera cake is that they made it LAW not to get that useless and too often deadly jab, directly proves my point.

    “ All vaccines kill people.”

    Not like the Chinese Flu Vaccine! The one thing this vaccine seems pretty damn good at and that’s killing the people it’s supposed to be saving.

    The problem is this so called vaccine didn’t do fuck all! And that was against a virus that was pretty damn benign to begin with!

    What id love to see is a comparison of deaths caused by all the other major vaccines that are out there. Someone must have that data eh?? 🤔

    Ironclaw in reply to rhhardin. | December 26, 2022 at 2:49 pm

    No, they didn’t work as they don’t stop the spread of the disease which is what vaccines are supposed to do. They were never even tested as to whether not they stopped the spread, as admitted in front of the EU parliament. The entire mRNA garbage fake vaccine mess has been nothing more than a huge scam.

    If you are correct then the individuals that work at the Pharma companies and the government agencies have absolutely nothing to worry about.

    However, if they did deliberately provide false information and people were harmed, then maybe a few years in prison will prevent this in the future.

    Not sure if we could squeeze in some liability for media and big tech, but that would be my Christmas wish.

Where there were false claims presented about the safety and efficacy of the vaccines on the part of the consortium of Pharmacy Corp and Govt Agencies that’s a problem for them generally. Where they intentionally gave misleading or false data and concealed or minimized info that would have potentially given a prudent person pause in order to advance their objective of maximum vaccination that’s another.

The folks doing the patient interaction and administering the vaccines don’t get a pass on other aspects of standard of care in the administration of the Covid vaccine the ‘immunity’ from liability doesn’t cover that. They still must adhere to all the other protocols.
The liability waiver for Covid doesn’t extend to the use of dirty needles they have shared with prior patients. Same for informed consent. Where a patient asked for info and it wasn’t given or was lied to then there wasn’t informed consent. This providers and facilities who acted in violation of basic standards and in some cases potentially outside State law or medical regulations can face consequences despite the supposed ‘immunity from liability’ for the vaccine.

    The strange part is, I’ve never had to ask for information for any other medical product I’ve gotten. They usually give me that stuff whether or not I as for it, or whether or not I want it. In some cases they even make you sign a form that says they gave you that information. Not with these fake vaccines though, they don’t want to tell you anything about them.

Could someone educate me on why DeSantis needs the Florida Supreme Court’s permission to form such a grand jury?
