THE FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION IS NOT PROTECTING US FROM DANGEROUS PHARMACEUTICALS!

Why would the FDA let claims that have been undermined by fraud appear on drug labels?

Agents of the Food and Drug Administration know better than anyone else just how bad scientific misbehavior can get. Reading the FDA’s inspection files feels almost like watching a highlights reel from a Scientists Gone Wild video. It’s a seemingly endless stream of lurid vignettes—each of which catches a medical researcher in an unguarded moment, succumbing to the temptation to do things he knows he really shouldn’t be doing. Faked X-ray reports. Forged retinal scans. Phony lab tests. Secretly amputated limbs. All done in the name of science when researchers thought that nobody was watching.

That misconduct happens isn’t shocking. What is: When the FDA finds scientific fraud or misconduct, the agency doesn’t notify the public, the medical establishment, or even the scientific community that the results of a medical experiment are not to be trusted. On the contrary. For more than a decade, the FDA has shown a pattern of burying the details of misconduct. As a result, nobody ever finds out which data is bogus, which experiments are tainted, and which drugs might be on the market under false pretenses. The FDA has repeatedly hidden evidence of scientific fraud not just from the public, but also from its most trusted scientific advisers, even as they were deciding whether or not a new drug should be allowed on the market. Even a congressional panel investigating a case of fraud regarding a dangerous drug couldn’t get forthright answers. For an agency devoted to protecting the public from bogus medical science, the FDA seems to be spending an awful lot of effort protecting the perpetrators of bogus science from the public.

Much of my research has to do with follies, foibles, and fraud in science, and I knew that the FDA wasn’t exactly bending over backward to correct the scientific record when its inspectors found problems during clinical trials. So as part of my investigative reporting class at New York University, my students and I set out to find out just how bad the problem was—and how much important information the FDA was keeping under wraps.

The silence is unbroken even when the FDA itself seems shocked at the degree of fraud and misconduct.

If it doesn’t work, stop doing it!

This includes supporting non-profit organizations that have failed to achieve their goals . . .  for decades!

The American Heart Association (AHA) has been around since 1924. They claim they have done research that has saved millions of lives. This is a questionable claim however as they are now promoting ideas that are sacrificing millions of lives. They promote the myth that high cholesterol is the cause of cardiovascular disease and dangerous statin drugs need to be ingested to control it.  See: How statin drugs really lower cholesterol and kill you one cell at a time by Hannah Yoseph, MD. This falsehood has even been incorporated into most cardiac rehabilitation programs across the country.

The American Cancer Society (ACS) has been around since 1913 and according to leading cancer expert, Dr. Samuel S. Epstein, cancer rates have increased dramatically while the organization continues to promote radiating breasts with mammograms and sickening patients with toxic unsuccessful chemotherapy. He exposed this corrupt organization in his book National Cancer Institute and American Cancer Society: Criminal Indifference to Cancer Prevention and Conflicts of Interest. See: National Cancer Institute and American Cancer Society skewered in new book by leading cancer expert

The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) was established in 1982. Their stated goals were to improve the safety of vaccines and secure informed consent protections in the United States. Neither goal has been achieved after 35 years of effort. In fact, in 2017 there are more dangerous vaccines being inflicted on the unsuspecting and uninformed population than ever before and drug stores are now vaccinating an unwary public while intentionally withholding information about vaccine side effects and adverse reactions – information they readily have at their finger tips.

Do these three failures have anything in common? Are non-profits neglecting to target the real culprit? Are they serving the purpose of controlled opposition?

The answer is YES to all three questions!

Patient’s right to informed dissent

MIGHT HAVE TO BE DECLARED . . . IN WRITING!

Last January 2017 a close family relative suffered a serious medical emergency requiring hospitalization. His condition was so critical his kidneys shut down. While in the hospital he was given extremely potent drugs in an attempt to stop life threatening abnormal heart beats. A week later his wife received a letter from his cardiologist’s office informing of the need to monitor his liver function via blood tests after his release. The drug he was receiving that required monitoring was Amiodarone.

We researched Amiodarone online and were shocked by what we discovered.

Amiodarone had been approved by the FDA WITHOUT ANY clinical trials.[1] In fact, the FDA had issued an alert in 2005 warning that it could cause severe (even lethal) pulmonary and or liver conditions and that it could worsen the arrhythmias it was being used to treat.[2] My relative’s cardiologist HAD NOT disclosed these all important facts to him or to his family. The drug was continued even though his chest x-rays revealed that he had newly developed pulmonary “infiltrates”, a lowered oxygen saturation level and was experiencing bouts of shortness of breath. When I informed my sick relative of these side effects, he discontinued the Amiodarone himself.

Then in February the same close family relative developed a post surgical blood clot. His doctor asked him to choose a blood thinning drug. Here are the choices he was given. They were written on the white board in his hospital room:

By offering him three choices, the physician put both the decision and the liability onto him. The fact that both Xarelto & Eliquis have a common side effect of increasing blood creatinine – when his poorly functioning kidneys were already causing his creatinine level to be abnormally high – was neither considered nor revealed. If his choice resulted in his death, it could be said that he had been fully informed (which he had not), had consented (had chosen), and was therefore personally responsible for the outcome.

As the info provided to him by his physician was sketchy at best and he was in the hospital without access to detailed information about these drugs, I did the investigation for him. After reviewing the information I gave him, he chose Coumadin as it was the only one of the three with an anecdote – Vitamin K – and the only one without risk of increased damage to his already injured kidneys.

[My relative took the Coumadin for 10 weeks. Fortunately, he had no new blood clots, no incidence of bleeding, and his creatinine level did not worsen.]

While the American Hospital Association claims that all patients have the right to “informed consent”[3], they don’t disclose that the patient must inform himself of the benefits and risks prior to consenting or dissenting. This lack of reliable information regarding treatment risks also occurs across the country when it comes to vaccines and their many potential (even life threatening) adverse reactions.

Harvard physician shamelessly touts pseudoscience

AND CALLS REAL SCIENTISTS PSEUDO SCIENTISTS AT THE SAME TIME

Rhodes’ propagandist Dr Atul Gawande

To be a successful propagandist you have to combine enough truth to make people believe your lies. Dr. Atul Gawande did exactly that in 2016 in his commencement address to the graduating class at CALTECH. His propaganda piece also appeared in the June 2016 issue of the New Yorker titled The Mistrust of Science. While his credentials impressed the folks at CALTECH enough to get him an invitation to speak, they pale when you compare them to the credentials of Dr. John Ioannidis who thoroughly researched and proved that our collective mistrust in what is called ‘science’ today needs to increase, not decrease.

Here are a few quotes from Dr. Gawande’s propaganda piece:

[Truth]
But you also hope to accept that nothing is ever completely settled, that all knowledge is just probable knowledge. A contradictory piece of evidence can always emerge.

[Lies]
Many people continue to believe, for instance, despite massive evidence to the contrary, that childhood vaccines cause autism (they do not); that people are safer owning a gun (they are not); that genetically modified crops are harmful (on balance, they have been beneficial); that climate change is not happening (it is).

[Truth]
The sociologist Gordon Gauchat studied U.S. survey data from 1974 to 2010 and found some deeply alarming trends. Despite increasing education levels, the public’s trust in the scientific community has been decreasing. Continue reading

Anatomy of a Con Job i.e. “sustainability”

EXPOSING THE FIVE LIES THAT ARE THE BASIS OF THE “SUSTAINABILITY” MOVEMENT!

As an environmentalist, I actively promoted the sustainability movement for many years. I even tried to convince my daughters NOT to have children. Thank God, they didn’t listen to me, for I now have four fabulous grandchildren.

In 2006 I helped found a local group that was part of the Post Carbon Institute’s Relocalization Network. I worked closely with academics that were taught – and still believe – that petroleum comes from fossilized matter. As these academics were the self-proclaimed ‘experts’, I did not think it necessary to investigate their claims.

However, when President George Bush, Jr began mandating the production of massive amounts of corn ethanol – and the environmental non-profits did little or nothing to expose and oppose this unsustainable water polluting and soil-depleting catastrophe – I started investigating the whole “sustainability” movement and the flawed policies that were being advanced in its name.

Data is easy to fabricate and manipulate, as John Truman Wolfe exposes. When it comes to oil, according to Matt Simmons (former President of the world’s largest energy investment company and author of Twilight in the Desert), discovery and production figures are controlled by private corporations. And, NASA’s data regarding global warming has been exposed as flawed many times. In fact, both the peak oil and CO2 global warming theories contain multiple false assumptions/myths. See: The Energy Myths – Peak Oil and Global Warming

Can anyone actually verify the number of humans now living on planet Earth? Are there really 7.5 billion? Does anyone trust the figures of the United Nations – that is a corporation owned and controlled by the World Bank and other globalist entities who are determined to replace the human population with automation and robots?

Many researchers and authors have worked diligently to expose the scams that John Truman Wolfe’s Anatomy of a Con Job targets so well. These include: author F. William Engdahl; geologists J. F. Kenny and Chris Landau; former oil executive Ian Crane; Col Fletcher Prouty (9 years service for the Pentagon); and ecologist Peter Taylor. But, none of them have the understanding of the banking industry and the financial “wizards behind the curtain” that Mr. Wolfe possesses.

For all who care about our planet and the amazing life forms that call planet Earth home, Anatomy of a Con Job is a must read. It is an accurate, easy to understand, and even entertaining look at the “sustainability” movement, the money behind it, and the path of destruction it is now on.
