Emergent BioSolutions’ “Troubled Plant”

If you haven’t enjoyed the videos of Russel Brand, it’s not too late; his videos are on YouTube. Today, I’d like to focus on one in particular, where he draws from a New York Times article that reveals serious deficiencies at the Baltimore plant of Emergent BioSolutions in their production of Covid vaccines. It’s an informative, and entertaining, video, so I recommend you watch the entire thing:

Here are some key screen captures:

Yes, the Trump administration started this fiasco, and the Biden administration ended it.

Perusing Emergent’s websites, we get the impression that the bulk of its Maryland staff is black:

A majority of the employees depicted on its websites are black – but none of its managers, and only two of its board of directors, are black. According to the video/New York Times article, upper management was trying to address the issues, but with little success. At least that was my understanding. Correct me if I’m wrong.

Of its 1300 employees, 500 are in Maryland, and the company makes no secret of the fact that a “diverse workforce” is one of its primary values. It’s probably why it got the government contract in the first place:

Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) is integral to how we operate. DEI fuels our business growth, drives innovation in the products and services we develop, in the way we solve problems, and how we serve the needs of a global and diverse patient, customer, and partner base. Our diverse workforce and inclusive environment create an organization rich with ideas, perspectives, and experiences

Yes, we can see what they mean by “diversity.”

Funnily enough, even after the vaccine scandal, the company (or the State of Maryland?) retained its “Success Stories” webpage, which touts its success in manufacturing Covid vaccines.

I have no direct evidence that Diversity played a role in Emergent’s gross misconduct, but it seems highly likely – and since there will be no New York Times investigative report on any such connection, nor can we expect any government investigation, all we can do is put two and two together, and draw our own conclusions.

    I don’t have the “stamina” to deal with weekly false flags and “managed
    decline” skullduggery leading up to the November elections, which are going
    to be stolen anyway.
    Vlad Putin said that the West is “An empire of lies,” and he never spoke
    more truthfully.
    Anyone who knows about Professional Wrestling and a bit of human psychology
    can see what’s happening here. The wrestling match is a staged phony exhibition.
    Contrived “altercations” are set up between “good guys” and “bad guys.” This wets
    the audiences’ appetite and at the conclusion of the matches the “new card” is
    announced: “Next week _______ will take on ______!”The crowd roars with
    excitement. Either these are the dumbest people or they like being toyed with.
    Oh well. Most political experts say: “The masses are ‘female.'”

      And now comes more revealations about the Texas mass murderer.
      We discover that “this kid” did not enter the school until 12 minutes
      after he began shooting. He was wearing armor as well. He DID NOT
      engage with a school security guard. He enters the school through a
      conviently unlocked door. No police show up for 20 minutes later.
      The hysterical parents (Who beg the police to enter the building) are
      kept away. It’s a turkey shoot. And Beto shows up at the press confrence.
      So what happens next? “The news” hammers the inept “racist” cops and
      white, male gun nuts who believe in “Replacement Theory” and WANTED
      Latino children to be slaughtered. Texas turns “blue,” and there’s no way
      the Republicans can ever win a Presidental election again if Texas
      becomes Democrat. And you still don’t believe there’s no such thing as a
      Devil.
