Why the FDA should be charged with murder

If you worked for a federal agency that was killing people at the rate of 100,000 a year, every year, like clockwork, and if you knew it, wouldn’t you feel compelled to say or do something about it?

At the FDA, which is, in fact, killing Americans at that rate, no one has ever felt the need to step forward and speak up.

Let’s shift the venue and ask the same question. If you were a medical reporter for a major media outlet in the US, and you knew the above fact, wouldn’t you make it a priority to say something, write something, do something?

I’m talking about people like Sanjay Gupta (CNN, CBS), Gina Kolata (NY Times), Tim Johnson (ABC News), and Thomas Maugh II (LA Times).

And with that, let’s go to the smoking guns. The citation is: BMJ June 7, 2012 (BMJ 2012:344:e3989). Author, Jeanne Lenzer. (See http://www.bmj.com/content/344/bmj.e3989)

Lenzer refers to a report by the Institute for Safe Medication Practices: “It calculated that in 2011 prescription drugs were associated with two to four million people in the US experiencing ‘serious, disabling, or fatal injuries, including 128,000 deaths.’”

The report called this “one of the most significant perils to humans resulting from human activity.”

And here is the final dagger. The report was compiled by outside researchers who went into the FDA’s own database of “serious adverse [medical-drug] events.”

Therefore, to say the FDA isn’t aware of this finding would be absurd. The FDA knows. The FDA knows and it isn’t saying anything about it, because the FDA certifies, as safe and effective, all the medical drugs that are routinely maiming and killing Americans.

Previously, I have documented that the FDA knows; because the FDA has a page on its own website that admits 100,000 people are killed every year by medical drugs, and two million more people are severely injured by the drugs. (Search engine “FDA Why Learn About Adverse Drug Reactions” or click here to be taken directly to the FDA page in question).

And for the past five years or so, I have been writing about and citing a published report by the late Dr. Barbara Starfield that indicates 106,000 people in the US are killed by medical drugs every year. Until her death in 2011, Dr. Starfield worked at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health. Her report, “Is US health really the best in the world?”, was published in the Journal of American Medical Association on July 26, 2000.

Since the Department of Homeland Security is working its way into every nook and corner of American life, hyper-extending its mandate to protect all of us from everything, why shouldn’t I go along with Janet Napolitano’s advice: see something, say something.

This is what I see and this is what I’m saying. Maybe DHS would like to investigate the FDA as a terrorist organization.

How many smoking guns do we need before a sitting president shuts down the FDA buildings, fumigates the place, and prosecutes very large numbers of FDA employees?

Do we need 100,000 smoking guns every year? Do we need relatives of the people who’ve all died in the span of merely a year, from the poisonous effects of FDA-approved medical drugs, to bring their corpses to the doors of FDA headquarters?

power outside the matrix

And let me ask another question. If instead of drugs like warfarin, dabigatran, levofloxacin, carboplatin, and lisinopril (the five leading killers in the FDA database), the 100,000 deaths per year were led by gingko, ginseng, vitamin D, niacin, and raw milk, what do you think would happen?

I’ll tell you what would happen. SEALS, Delta Force, SWAT teams, snipers, predator drones, tanks, and infantry would be attacking every health-food store in America. The resulting fatalities would be written off as necessary collateral damage in the fight to keep America safe and healthy.

All those phony stories in the press, reported dutifully by so-called medical reporters? The stories about maybe-could-be-possible-miracle breakthroughs just over the horizon of state-of-the-art medical research? Those stories are there to obscure the very, very hard facts of medically-caused death on the ground.

The buck stops at the FDA.

Except in the real world, it doesn’t. Which tells you something about the so-called real world and how much of it is composed of propaganda.

Here is the situation. No medical drug in the US can be released for public use unless and until the FDA says it is safe and effective. That’s the rule. The FDA is spitting out drug approvals month after month and year after year, and the drugs are routinely killing 100,000 people a year and maiming two million more, which adds up to a million deaths per decade and 20 million maimings per decade. The FDA and the federal government are doing nothing about it, even though they know what’s going on. This is mass murder. Not accidental death. Murder. A holocaust.

    Thank you doctor. God bless you. Your ethics and honor are legendary in your own time,

  2. InalienableWrights says:

    This applies to a many more Federal agencies IMHO.

    • Yeah, how about that CDC, right up there with the FDA.

      2 interesting things I learned.

      1) Prescription drugs NEVER expire. Harvard Medical School say so. No use by date. Now imagine how much so called medicine is thrown away, every day, as expired. If that is not the scam of scams….

      2) And then of course the whole Phramacopicon. Prescription pain killers kill more than Heroine and Coke COMBINED!

      The west needs to rethink it’s “healing” mind-set and the east needs to stop importing it as fast as it is.

      TImely stuff Jon, all part of the ongoing Apo-calypso!

    The kingdom of this world/Toxins.htm

    We now live in a nation where doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, universities destroy knowledge, governments destroy freedom, the press destroys information, religions destroy morals, and our banks destroy the economy.

    When subjected to universal deceit the strong will revolt

    Too bad mainstream media won’t share your story! The FDA is completely out of control. Allowing Monsanto to run rampant with GMO’s as “significantly equivalent” is another example of a disastrous lack of oversight. And when I try to advertise a natural plant extract, hemp oil loaded with beneficial CBD my ads get blocked by Google and credit card processors (banks) refuse the business. You can’t overdose on hemp oil and there are no known adverse side effects.

    One hand of our government, the Dept. of Health and Human Services has has a patent on CBD Oil (extract from cannabis sativa) since 2003 (#6630507) claiming all sorts of medicinal benefits. On the other hand the DEA still lists cannabis sativa as a Schedule-1 narcotic with no medicinal value. Which arm of the same government should we believe? Hypocrisy in plain sight.

    good luck charging any one with anything at the FDA .I had been in correspondence with the FDA over the morning after abortion pill, and NIH fraud ( see http://www.cancerfraudbadbiotech.com ) and they do not act independently. They are handcuffed by politicians directing their actions. In my own case, the Canadian government was making a deal with the pharmaceutical companies to extend patent protection .This allegedly means kick backs to politicians. In the case of the Canadian government , thru PM Brian Mulroney ( a conservative ) he allegedly used his influence on then President Bill Clinton ( a liberal ) to allegedly interfere with a DOJ felony investigation . Essentially, if you can have the leaders of two supposedly democratic and human rights supporting nations allegedly conspiring to obstruct justice and violate human rights , why do you expect the FDA to be able to do anything ? That is the problem . Thank you . E.A. Greenhalgh

    excellent post Jon!! I’m 75% complete with my memoirs about soon after becoming a quadriplegic, I bravely fired the entire western medical system (Nov 2001) that only wanted to pump me full of drugs after telling me I’d never walk again. The more I tried to fight, the more they tried to hold me down. I have not seen a western med practitioner since and am (until proven otherwise) the most successful recovered quad in the world. (Luck and great surgeon are 2 of the 4 factors contributing to my success as well as hard work and firing the industries) My medical records can back my story and my physical abilities will support my results. I paid for all my therapies out of pocket in an open market and the cost of recovery was far less than a so call ‘health’ ins policy.The end of the book is planned to attack the current system including the FDA with basic living logic. I am the lab rat and the scientist and will debate any of the ‘professionals’ that support the current ‘healthcare’ industries.

    “Retired propaganda master, Ellis Medavoy, once said to me [Jon Rappoport], ‘Find a truly explosive hidden fact and put it in front of a person’s eyes, hold it there, and see what happens. The person will go blank. He’ll go blank because on a barely conscious level, he’s rapidly calculating how many deceptions he’s swallowed about all sorts of related subjects. Then he’ll blink and tell you what you just showed him is impossible…’

    “I [Jon Rappoport] would add: after he says it’s impossible, he’ll actually make excuses for the perpetrator of the crime you’ve just exposed. He’ll give you a dozens reasons to let the perpetrator off the hook. He’ll really warm up to the perpetrator and say he’s a wonderful human being. He’ll spin gossamer and rainbows from here to the moon.

    “It’s quite something to behold.”

    Jon is a smart fellow and a good reasoner. However no one can perform beyond accessible knowledge. There is concern stated as to 100,000 deaths per annum in this item. Huh? How about an organization that planned and caused both World wars, the Great Depression, many regional conflicts, and owns Big Pharma? Is such a charge possible to lay on the doorstep of one particular organization? Most definitely. That group is “The Pilgrims Society,” sponsored by the Crown of England. I am by far the largest source of documentation on this group. It can be accessed on Google search and it’s all no charge, public interest work. Elmer Bobst of Warner Lambert, who was in the leaked Pilgrims list for 1969, was a “mentor” to President Nixon, as was Walter Annnenberg (Pilgrims), who owned TV Guide. The 1980 leaked list shows Edmund T. Pratt chairman of Pfizer. William Martin, who headed the Federal Reserve for 19 years and ended up on boards like Eli Lilly after he reorganized the New York Stock Exchange, was another Pilgrims member. Are there more examples? Very definitely. At Versailles in 1919, members including Henry White and Lord Curzon guaranteed that Germany would turn to a dictator, because they purposefully made the terms too harsh against Germany, causing a bizarre hyperinflation in 1923. Curzon himself, former Viceroy of India, said—“It is not a peace treaty, but a break in hostilities.” The Pilgrims Society plans to reduce world population by 5 to 6 billion people—Prince Philip, who personally controls over 800 organizations, has admitted it. Most of the world’s troubles trace to this small group of kingmakers. My view is they plan to play off Russia against China in the next 5 to 10 years.

    I think the most Blatant corruption is how the FDA protects Monsanto by forcing milk companies that omit it, to advertise for Monsanto’s rotten rGBH growth hormone with a disclaimer saying the rGBH they omit at the desire of the public, is just fine and dandy. Monsanto is the ONLY company that gets that special treatment. If you omit artificial flavor from your cookies, the FDA doesn’t force you to print a disclaimer that artificial flavor is okay. This is BLATANT corruption at the FDA, but not the first example.

    But FDA commissioners go to work for big bucks for the industry they “regulate,” after their bribe-me stint is done in government. I remember years ago the FDA banned natural, harmless Stevia, which was used in Europe, while allowing more toxic Equal, because Bush’s secretary of defense had big stock in Equal. The usual corruption.

    We are rapidly becoming the most money-corrupted government on earth and your vote is now a joke, compared to the pull of the money-men.

    On the subject of holocaust, Jon………


    My latest, controversial as ever, post 😉

    But they’re too big to fail, or to be held accountable.

    Very interesting read, thanks. I just wrote a small piece on my blog about reasons to question the FDA. The FDA is so corrupt, I can’t believe people even take their approvals as any type of validation to its safety. Must of what they approve is lethal, whereas they never approve any natural or healthy alternatives, as they pose a threat to the pharma industry.
