Welcome to the circus, boys and girls. Parades, animals, acrobats, clowns, all colluding to approve lethal drugs for public use! Watch people take the drugs and fall down, watch them carted off in colorful cars to hospitals, where the doctors will have no idea what’s causing the life-threatening injuries! It’s wild, it’s crazy, and it’s brought to you by drug companies and their enablers at the FDA! It’s all covered by insurance. We’ve got cotton candy, popcorn, ice cream for the kiddies, and everybody can get in under the big tent! It’s the biggest game and the biggest hustle in town!

Recently, I wrote about the 18,000 lawsuits against Xarelto. Here is a quick recap:

The first court test of Bayer/J&J’s billion-dollar bonanza, blood-thinner, Xarelto, is coming up in New Orleans next week. The outcome will influence how the 18,000 lawsuits behind it will be handled.

The plaintiff in the first suit is Joseph Boudreaux. “While Xarelto was supposed to help cut his stroke risk, Boudreaux says it instead caused internal bleeding that required a week-long hospital stay in the intensive-care unit, several blood transfusions and multiple heart procedures. ‘I don’t want anybody else to suffer like I have from that drug,’ the part-time security guard says,” reports the Chicago Tribune.

Lawyers for Bayer and J&J will argue, in the main, that Xarelto was approved by the FDA as safe and effective.

This is the normal front-line strategy. “Well, the government says our drug is safe and effective, so what else do you want from us? We’ve done our duty. We’re off the hook.”

All right, that’s my recap.

BUT suppose the drugmaker and the government (FDA) both cheated and lied and committed multiple crimes, during the clinical trials of the drug leading up to its approval for public use?

It turns out someone has been investigating those clinical trials of Xarelto, and he has uncovered stunning secrets. His name is Charles Seife. He is a professor of journalism at New York University.

Lawyers for the plaintiffs in the 18,000 lawsuits against Xaraelto, take notice. This is information you want to have at your fingertips. Seife can provide many details—here I’m just presenting his overview.

Buckle up.

Professor Seife writes, at Slate, about the four human clinical trials of Xarelto. These were called the RECORD trials; RECORD 1, 2, 3, and 4:

“The problems were so bad and so widespread that, contrary to its usual practice, the FDA declared the entire RECORD study to be ‘unreliable.’ Yet if you look in the medical journals, the results from RECORD 4 sit quietly in The Lancet without any hint in the literature about falsification, misconduct, or chaos behind the scenes. This means that physicians around the world are basing life-and-death medical decisions on a study that the FDA knows is simply not credible.”

Seife is pointing out that the FDA never alerted The Lancet that the published report on the Xarelto clinical trials was false through and through.

Seife continues: “RECORD 2, for example, was nearly as awful as RECORD 4: Four out of 10 sites that the FDA inspected showed evidence of misconduct, or other issues grave enough to render the site’s data worthless—including clear evidence of data falsification at one site. In aggregate, these problems raise serious doubts about the quality of all four key rivaroxaban (Xareltio) studies—and, by extension, doubts about how seriously we should take the claim that rivaroxaban is safe and effective. The FDA is keeping mum, even as wrongful-death lawsuits begin to multiply.”

“The sworn purpose of the FDA is to protect the public health, to assure us that all the drugs on the market are proven safe and effective by reputable scientific trials. Yet, over and over again, the agency has proven itself willing to keep scientists, doctors, and the public in the dark about incidents when those scientific trials turn out to be less than reputable. It does so not only by passive silence, but by active deception.”

Basically, Seife is stating that the FDA found horrendous distortions in the clinical trials of Xarelto—and yet the agency approved the drug, as safe and effective, for public use.

—And then people taking the drug began to experience dire “adverse effects,” like uncontrolled bleeding.

And now we have 18,000 lawsuits against Xarelto’s parents, Bayer and J&J.

What about lawsuits against the FDA? That’s a tougher hill to climb for lawyers. Because the FDA is “the government.”

I’ve written many articles about the criminal agency called the FDA (article archive here). For stark revealing light, consider an interview relentless medical reporter, Martha Rosenberg, conducted with an FDA employee, whose job was reviewing new drugs and offering an assessment of their safety and efficacy, prior to agency approval or rejection.

Here is what I wrote in one piece:

In a stunning interview with Truthout’s Martha Rosenberg, former FDA drug reviewer, Ronald Kavanagh, exposes the FDA as a relentless criminal mafia protecting its client, Big Pharma, with a host of mob strategies.

Kavanagh: “…widespread [FDA] racketeering, including witness tampering and witness retaliation.”

“I was threatened with prison.”

“One [FDA] manager threatened my children…I was afraid that I could be killed for talking to Congress and criminal investigators.”

Kavanagh reviewed new drug applications made to the FDA by pharmaceutical companies. He was one of the holdouts at the Agency who insisted that the drugs had to be safe and effective before being released to the public.

But honest appraisal wasn’t part of the FDA culture, and Kavanagh swam against the tide, until he realized his life and the life of his children was on the line.

That’s what I wrote, and considering what has happened in the case of Xarelto, Kavanagh’s statements take on very specific meaning:

The FDA colludes with a drug manufacturer to hide the dangers of a new drug that should never have been approved.

The drug is approved.

The drug assaults people and causes grievous harm.

Based on this article, and many others I’ve written exposing the FDA, I would say the agency is in charge of internal and domestic chemical warfare against the American people.

There. Is that clear enough?

Update—the first lawsuit against Xarelto, in New Orleans, has just been decided by a jury. They have ruled in favor of the drug companies, Bayer and J&J, and against the plaintiff, Joseph Boudreaux.

The major (narrow) issue in the case seems to have come down to this: did the drug companies failed to warn physicians about bleeding risks associated with Xarento?

The jury said Bayer and J&J DIDN’T FAIL TO WARN.

End of story.

The madness continues.

This is what happens when plaintiffs’ lawyers are too dim to see the big picture I presented in this article—or when a presiding judge keeps denying the right to introduce relevant evidence against a drug.

What about the 18,000 Xarelto lawsuits against Bayer and J&J that are waiting in the wings? Right now, the plaintiffs’ lawyers are scrambling to re-think their strategies.

It’s possible that, eventually, all 18,000 cases will be settled, not tried in court. If that happens, the people who have been damaged by Xarelto could each receive a minimal payout for their suffering.

NOTE TO PLAINTIFFS’ LAWYERS: Reveal, in court, the criminal collusion between the FDA and Bayer and J&J. Expose the crimes they committed in order to get the highly dangerous Xarelto approved for public use in the first place—when it should have been rejected and all the stocks destroyed.

Put THAT in front of a jury.

    …Put that in front of a jury” …IF the judge will allow you to.

  2. swo8 says:

    I hope they sue the FDA as well as the drug company.

  3. deanbrh says:

    Just in case you haven’t run across the FDA daily Alerts, you should subscribe because there are stunning recalls of equipment, drugs, foods and “supplements” that could harm you, EVERY day! The alerts come to your e-mail address daily, free, if you subscribe.

  4. deanbrh says:

    The larceny of bigpharm under any Democrat Administration is so problematic because ALL of the Democrats work together to influence the outcome on behalf of the Globalist Elite Cabal. So a case of abuse that gets to court has to get indicted by a Democrat judge, and that will never happen.

    God Bless President Trump for daily working to stop that from happening in the future. Keep supporting him by retweeting his Tweets and eventually he will have the swamp drained and the Bad Azz Democrats neutered.

  5. Clark says:

    I think this is closely tied to UN Agenda 21. Should be looked at from that perspective.

  6. Oliver K. Manuel says:

    The US NAS (National Academy of Sciences) is the culprit that avoids public identification because the US NAS reviews future programs and budgets of federal research agencies for Congress.

    Even Rick Perry, the new Secretary of Energy under President Trump, seems afraid or unwilling to publicly criticize the US NAS for destroying the integrity of government science and constitutional government after WWII.

  7. Russell Wattie says:

    The problem is, most people don’t want to take the risk going up against a Government department. The accurate perception of a bottomless pit of Taxpayers money being used against you is a valid reason for most. The thing to concider is, if your right by not taking them to task you are letting them win, not only against yourself, but others that will come after you or are already in the same predicament.
    Here in Australia I recently took on the Queensland Workcover Authority and challenged their ruling that even though my injury was sustained at work, they declared it to not be as a result of work activities. One of the reason cited was my age, and the general deterioration of my body as a result. I pointed out that with the recent Federal Government policy of raising the retirement age, they couldn’t rule out injuries sustained in part as a result of that age based deterioration.
    Further to this though, I recived phone calls from the Workcover regulator threatening me with having to pay their legal costs if I lost. To which I replied the operative word is ‘IF’.
    The Workcover regulator took it right the way to the Industrial Relations Tribunal, where on the day of the hearing they asked (and were granted more time) as they were waiting on the 2nd page of a two page fax that had “failed” to come through from the Orthopedic surgeon. As it turns out that page was one they had sent him to sign, verifying the conclusion of a conference call with the Regulator and the Orthopedic surgeon. Net result one week later the Workcover regulator decided to give in.
    That took 8 months & last week the Industrial Relations Tribunal made the order that it was a work place injury. Now I can get started with treatment and receive the money for lost wages. I see another fight here, but I’m already prepared.
    The moral of the story is when you are right, fight for that right.

      best of luck to you, russell. and bravo.

      I contributed to an organization that
      sued the FDA because it had workers who
      sat on an advisory board to rule
      yay or nay with regards to a treatment,
      the first effective and safe immune therapy for cancer,
      where these FDA workers had
      two competing products.

      The immune therapy was rejected.

      The FDA was sued because
      there were multiple conflicts of interest.

      We lost. The other competing products were approved.

      The company that invented the first immune therapy, went broke.

      Now a foreign company owns the immune therapy.

      The American public lost out.

      It is sad what has become of a ounce great country.

  8. Bunny says:

    May 7, 2017 has a beautiful segment on FAKE SCIENCE..especially detailing the fake science in big Pharma.and Medicine

    you can read the interview and watch the clip here

    Many of us already know about the lies, some of us have SEEN it working in the laboratories and have been frustrated because we don’t have a voice, and there isn’t much we can do..

  9. akismet531 says:

    I have family members who I’ve been warning for decades to stay away from big pharma drugs, especially when there are non-toxic alternatives. It does no good. At the first sign of trouble they run to the doctor. I have relatives hooked on coumadin, statins, antidepressants and who knows what else.

    Once on, they can’t get off. My father got a stroke for trying to get off coumadin. The same doctor gave my father a flu shot. He was hospitalized for pneumonia a week later.

    It’s almost as if they’re conspiring to kill off the over 60 crowd before they get the chance to collect too much retirement benefits.

  10. From Quebec says:

    For Big Pharma, there is no financial incentive to heal you, because a patient cured is a customer lost.

    Is Pradaxa any better?

    Docs handing out prescriptions for these lethal drugs isn’t medicine,it’s a form of Russian roulette.

  14. Suzie Qs says:

    I wonder how many in the jury were approached by FDA thugs. A threat here and there could never hurt right?

  15. Eye of Horus says:

    Don’t forget, Arnold Palmer was taking and advertising for Xeralto. He died from a heart problem Xealto was supposed to control. All of those blood thinners (Predaxa, Xeralto and Elequis) “in rare cases” as the commercials say, cause internal bleeding in the body or the brain and heart problems. None of them should have ever been allowed to be put on the market. The federal government goes up in arms when a supplement “MAY HAVE” caused a problem but they do nothing regarding the hundreds of thousands of people who either die or become addicted to prescription drugs. The FDA is pretty much a joke.

  16. Doreen Agostino says:

    Jon Rappoport, you are a brilliant investigative journalist. I thank you for revealing these and other facts.

    A close personal friend just started taking Riaroxaban. I recalled your post and did a search online to discover that it is Xarelto. I just emailed your posts to them.

    Technology is limitless potential to do good when humans reach for their power.

  17. Sue says:

    A few months ago I had an infection in my leg. A doctor prescribed an antibiotic, and as it so happened, I had an “adverse effect” to the antibiotic. My throat swelled and impeded breathing. I went to the emergency room, and a doctor came in and spent about 15 minutes telling me I must have tests for everything, to rule out the “more obvious reasons” for what he called “shortness of breath.” I told him I did not have any heart or lung problems, I had an allergic reaction to the antibiotic. He continued to argue with me. I conceded to an echocardiogram to shut him up. The results of that showed the heart was fine. They ended up giving me an antihistamine, but I was STILL discharged with paperwork that reported my condition as “shortness of breath.”

    • artemisix says:

      I too am allergic to many antibiotics— Penicillin and ANYTHING RELATED to it, so be careful with anything related to the one that gave you a bad reaction……there are some superb antibiotic herbs you can keep on hand, and are as effective if not more so…..
