Big Pharma is America’s New Mafia

PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES HAVE MORE POWER THAN EVER, AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE PAYING THE PRICE – TOO OFTEN WITH THEIR LIVES!

Dr. Daniela Drake, thedailybeast.com
February 21, 2015

By now you have probably seen John Oliver’s comic take on the pharmaceutical industry’s influence on doctors’ prescribing habits. Media outlets from Mother Jones to the Wall Street Journal commented admiringly, and even the American Medical Association felt compelled to declare they were “committed to transparency” around drug company payments to doctors.

But satire will do very little to focus on the real problem if we’re distracted by the humor inherent in self-important doctors being bought off by a steak. What’s not funny is that America is the most medicated nation on earth, with some 70 percent of Americans taking prescription drugs—yet we have worse health outcomes than other industrialized countries. Part of the problem may be the drugs themselves. As Slate’s devastating expose on the fraud in clinical drug trials shows us: We don’t know much about the drugs we prescribe.

But as physicians, we have very little good information to go on. Even our most prestigious journals publish research based on falsified studies, according to Charles Seife, a journalism professor whose class spent a semester trying to figure out why the data don’t get corrected once research fraud comes to light. “As a result,” Seife writes, “nobody ever finds out which data is bogus, which experiments are tainted, and which drugs might be on the market under false pretenses.”

If no one knows which data is bogus, we obviously have a big problem in conventional medicine. Perhaps we shouldn’t be so focused on marketing shenanigans, and more concerned about the original study data before something becomes standard of care. Standard of care, of course, is driven by “research” that is incorporated into academic guidelines and is the basis of customer demand. Continue reading

Open letter from a grandmother to her daughters regarding vaccines

gardasilFamily,

As you all know, I am madly in love with your children. Their health and their future is of the utmost importance to me. In fact, there is nothing more important to me than their future well being.

That said, we need to talk.

As you all know your father and I have been closely involved in the medical profession for most of our adult lives. During the past 40 years we have observed – from front row seats – many changes in how medicine is practiced.

As a reminder, here is a brief synopsis of your father’s medical career:

  • Was a resident in internal medicine for 18 months
  • Completed a three year residency in anatomic pathology
  • Taught pathology at a medical school in West Virginia for seven years
  • Did a residency in general practice, passed the necessary exam and became a Board Certified physician in Family Medicine
  • Worked for the OSU urgent care clinic system for fourteen years
  • Took many many hours of continuing medical education

And here is mine:
I started my medical career as a hospital billing clerk. Then I was trained at Northwestern University in Chicago in Respiratory Therapy, did an internship-period at the University of Chicago, passed both a written and an oral exam to become a Registered Respiratory Therapist, was a supervisor in a hospital RT dept, and taught both advanced and basic life support to medical students. My last job in the profession was as a secretary for your father.

Your father and I have had many discussions regarding the medical profession over the years, as you know. It is safe to say that both of us were well trained and indoctrinated in the ‘field of medicine’ which has now become an ‘industry’. In fact some brave physicians have gone public regarding the changes that have occurred in the field of medicine over the past several decades: Doctors Speak out: healthcare has been reduced to a money making factory

30 Solid Scientific Studies that Prove Vaccines [can] Cause Autism

Sean Adl-Tabatabai, yournewswire.com
December 9, 2015

mmr - vial

We have compiled a list of 30 scientific studies that show a link between vaccines and autism, disproving the myth that no official research papers exist to support what alternative doctors have been saying for years. 

These papers can be shown to medical doctors and public health officials who wish to see peer reviewed scientific studies to back up the claims that autism is a direct result from receiving a vaccination.

The first research paper presented was the first one ever written on the subject, from 1943.  Child Psychiatrist Leo Kanner discovered 11 children over the course of several years who displayed a novel set of neurological symptoms that had never been described in the medical literature, where children were withdrawn, uncommunicative and displayed similar odd behaviors. This disorder would become known as “autism.” In the paper, Dr. Kanner noted that onset of the disorder began following the administration of a small pox vaccine. This paper, was published in 1943, and evidence that vaccination causes an ever increasing rate of neurological and immunological regressions, including autism, has been mounting from that time until now.

Autistic Disturbances of Affective Contact
Leo Kanner, Johns Hopkins University, 1943

“Since 1938, there have come to our attention a number of children whose condition differs so markedly and uniquely from anything reported so far, that each case merits – and, I hope, will eventually receive – at detailed consideration of its fascinating peculiarities.”

All of Kanners cases were born after, and began to appear following, the introduction of Eli Lilly’s new form of water soluble mercury in the late 1920s used as an anti-fungal in forestry, a wood treatment product in the lumber industry and as a disinfectant and anti-bacterial in the medical industry under the name of “Thimerosal” that was included in vaccines.

As I testified to at the hearing, there is abundant research supporting the vaccine autism link. I have included 49 research papers for your review, and only included research published in the last ten years or so. This is by no means a complete list, but it one that I have been compiling for the last few years as relevant research came to my attention. I have ONLY included autism related information, not research on other vaccine injuries of which there are many.

As you can see, the medical professionals testifying that there is no scientific support for the vaccine/autism causation theory are uninformed about the current state of the science. When vaccination decisions are made based on an uninformed opinion, it means serious potential damage to the patient, and because of the law preventing lawsuits for vaccine injury, it also means that the uninformed medical professionals making bad recommendations CANNOT be held accountable in any way for giving the patient bad information.

Parents want to know if their child can develop autism from their vaccines. If they believe that the answer is yes, and the risk of brain injury from vaccination is higher than their risk from a disease, it is their right to decline vaccination for themselves and their children with out coercion.

Patients MUST be able to make their own informed vaccine decisions, because often, they know more about potential vaccine risks that even top public health officials do.

Boys vaccinated as neonates had threefold greater odds for autism diagnosis compared to boys never vaccinated or vaccinated after the first month of life.

Deputizing Doctors

PUBLIC HEALTH IS MORPHING INTO “POPULATION HEALTH”!

Twila Brase, RN, PHN, Citizens Council for Health Freedom
December 2, 2015

public healthAmericans need to see “population health” for what it really is. Last week, a POLITICO panel discussed the term “population health,” which is key to Obamacare’s transformation away from the private practice of medicine — and into the everyday lives of Americans – starting with Medicare.

It begins with the lump sum and bundled payments doctors will be paid by Medicare under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) to practice “population health” rather than individualized patient care.

Joshua Sharfstein, M.D., former Maryland Secretary of Health and now Associate Dean for Public Health Practice and Training at John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health explained “population health” in two ways. Here’s the first:

I think of population health as the health of a community. That includes the people seeking care and the people not seeking care. … It’s their overall health. … If you go back to when the term “population health” was coined, it was coined to get at some of the non-clinical factors that underlie the health of communities, including access to safe food, access to safe communities, and prevention…

The Maryland health information exchange gave a lot of tools to doctors to know what was happening to their patients even if they weren’t seeing them.

This means tracking individuals. Dr. William Borden, M.D., a health policy professor, said algorithms can be used to look for patterns in the community from “patient-reported outcomes” shared through a clinic’s computerized medical record portal, FitBit data, home blood pressure monitors, and more.

But population health is so much more. After being asked to explain the difference between population health and public health, Dr. Sharfstein clarified:

I think population health is the way that health care systems are thinking about public health now. Generally speaking, when people use the term, public health, they’re thinking about public health departments. … Public health is sometimes seen as for public health people, but when the clinical system gets into public health, they’re talking about population health. I think it’s a very similar concept. It’s the term that people in health care use when they’re doing some of the things that people in public health do.”

Translated: Doctors, clinics, hospitals and health plans are being deputized as government agents. To protect yourself from tracking and profiling, opt out of your state’s health information exchange, find a cash-based physician, and refuse to share FitBit data, answer clinic questionnaires, or use the clinic online portal into your medical record. Then demand state legislators enact informed patient consent requirements for all data-sharing.

In freedom,

Caution: unHealthy People 2020 is coming after us all!

[Originally posted on AntiCorruption Society.com]

un healthy peopleThe mandatory vaccination issue is ramping up and according to Dr Gary G Kohls, MD there are 271 new vaccines in Big Pharma’s pipeline. Since Big Pharma and the vaccine pushers and promoters have a “liability exemption”, their business plan represents pure profit and no loss for all of those involved.

According to the excellent research of Dr Sherri Tenpenny, the Department of Health and Human Services launched a program in 2010 called Healthy People 2020. Their goal is to remove all (but medical) school vaccine exemptions and push vaccinations in every arena of our society. Thanks to Executive Order 13335 of Bush Jr (which implemented electronic medical records across the country), tracking our vaccination history will be easy for government-corporations and medical institutions alike.

Those who understand the very real threat to our health that vaccines represent, have every right to be concerned and downright outraged. In fact, if they are not they don’t really understand what is going on. Those who still think there is a legislative solution to vaccine mania need to listen to Tenpenny’s entire interview on Red Ice Radio. Healthy People 2020 is an extremely well funded top-down program.

As Healthy People 2020 rolls out, the only way left for us to protect ourselves and our progeny from toxic vaccines is to get smart about what our so-called government has morphed into and challenge its nonexistent authority.

On In Defense of Humanity last Saturday, we featured a clip of Dr Sherri Tenpenny’s exposé regarding the Healthy People 2020 program. We also played clips of a 2011 interview with the fabulous historical and legal researcher (may she rest in peace) Joyce Rosenwald. Joyce explains the many ways both our history and our legal system have been misrepresented to us and how we are unwittingly consenting to rules (laws) that lack lawful authority.

Please listen to the In Defense of Humanity show of Aug 19, 2015 so you can start to understand that there are lawful ways to refuse to cooperate with the ever-growing vaccination agenda.

Quote from The UCC and You:

Page 39
A person created under de jure law, with the person’s identifying name appearing as prescribed by law and according to the rules of English grammar, is a legal fact. A corrupted “alter ego” version of that name [the STRAWMAN], manufactured under the legal fiction of “right of presumption”, will have credibility only so long as the presumption remains unchallenged. The rule of the world is that anything and everything skates unless you bust it.

In other words, if you consent . . . you can’t complain! Let them know you don’t consent by presenting them with a Vaccination Notice.

DO NOT SIGN the Refusal to Vaccinate form!

IT IS A TRAP!

By AL Whitney © copyround 2015
Permission is granted for redistribution if linked to original and Parents Against Mandatory Vaccines is acknowledged.

THE REFUSAL TO VACCINATE DOCUMENT

The Refusal to Vaccinate document was created by the CDC or the American Academy of Pediatrics ‘legal department’ as a response to the growing number of toxic vaccines recommended by them and the growing number of parents who are becoming educated on this issue. According to CDC recommendations, our children should now receive 37 doses of vaccines between 0-16 years. [See Vaccine Schedule]

This document, now being used to overcome vaccine awareness, is the most diabolical strategy possible! It is unlikely that physicians have any idea what they are asking their patients to sign . . . or to sign away. It is essentially a signed confession. So please read and understand why no one should sign it and why it is really something other than what it appears to be.

TWELVE REASONS YOU CANNOT SIGN REFUSAL TO VACCINATE

Here are 12 reasons why no parent can sign this document unless they are interested in being statutorily charged with neglect or intentionally causing harm. Repeating more boldly: this document, if signed, could be used to have your child(ren) removed from your custody! It was created to stand up in court, which is why they require the parent’s signature to be “witnessed”?

Refusal to Vaccinate 3

The document attaches a child ID # that will be identifiable in the electronic records system across the country. Everyone from the school to the NSA will be able to determine who is and who is not vaccinated. Continue reading

It’s time to address ‘health care deniers’

PHYSICIANS , CLINICS AND EMERGENCY DEPARTMENTS THAT DENY CARE TO VACCINE WARY PATIENTS NEED TO BE EDUCATED OR EXPOSED!

By AL Whitney © copyround 2015
Permission is granted for redistribution if linked to original and Parents Against Mandatory Vaccines is acknowledged.

cadeucus bw - noThe strategies currently being promoted by health care facilities across the country are getting pretty ugly.  Many well educated men and women who refuse vaccines, such as tetanus shots, are being denied care.

Attorneys have told hospitals, clinics and physicians that if patients refuse vaccines and then get sick from the disease the vaccine is “supposed” to prevent, the patients can sue for malpractice. So, rather than risk the liability, some physicians are refusing to provide any care whatsoever.

The reason this situation is occurring is partly because of the CDC’s Healthy People 2020 agenda (which is extremely well funded),  partly because the attorneys providing ‘legal’ advice are themselves totally indoctrinated,  and partly because the vaccination information provided to physicians is extremely well controlled by the vaccine pushers and beneficiaries.

We are going to need bold actions to slow down this very nasty and dangerous trend.  The following strategy is designed to get the attention of physicians and hopefully reduce the number of events whereas patients who are smart enough to refuse vaccines are abandoned. Continue reading
