Dispatches from the War: the pharmaceutical/medical troops occupy planet Earth

How many drug scripts do doctors write per year?

I wrote the following piece in 2017. It details the massively successful infiltration of pharmaceutical armies among the population.

These men and women are war criminals.

Here we go:

Medical News Today reports that, in 2011, there was a modest uptick in the number of drug prescriptions written in the US. [1] [1a]

The increase brought the total to: 4.02 billion.

Yes, in 2011, doctors wrote 4.02 billion prescriptions for drugs in America.

That’s an average of roughly 13 prescriptions for each man, woman, and child.

That’s about one new prescription every month for every American. (Update: the Kaiser Family Foundation reports that in 2016, 4,065,479,343 drug prescriptions were written by US doctors—an increase of 65 million. [2])

The Medical News Today article concluded, “…the industry should be heartened by the growth of the number of prescriptions and spending.” Yes, I’m sure the drug industry popped champagne corks.

We’re talking about prescriptions here. We’re not talking about the number of pills Americans took. We’re also not counting over-the-counter drugs or vaccine shots.

Pharmacopoeia, a 2011 exhibition at the British Museum, estimated that “the average number of pills a person takes in his or her own lifetime in the UK is 14,000.” That’s as a result of prescriptions. Including over-the-counter drugs, the 14,000 number would swell to 40,000 pills taken in a lifetime. [3]

What are the effects of all these drugs?

We are looking at a supreme Trojan Horse that is rotting out America and all other countries from the inside. Wars, no wars, economic deprivation, economic prosperity, the drugs continue to do their work, debilitating and ruining and terminating lives.

Many sources can be cited to confirm this assessment.

On January 8th, 2001, the LA Times published an article by one of the best medical reporters in the business, Linda Marsa: “When Good Drugs Do Harm.” Marsa quoted researcher Dr. David Bates, who indicated that, in the US, there are 36 million serious adverse reactions to medical drugs per year. [4] [4a]

On July 26, 2000, the Journal of the American Medical Association published the most stunning mainstream estimate of medical-drug damage in history: “Is US health really the best in the world?” The author was Dr. Barbara Starfield, a respected public-health researcher at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health. [5] [5a]

Starfield concluded that medical drugs were killing Americans at the rate of 106,000 per year.

That’s a million deaths per decade.

This is a conservative sketch of the Trojan Horse that has been placed in the center of every country in the world.

The pharmaceutical juggernaut will continue, no doubt about it. The only question is, how many people will wake up and seek another way?

The destruction of societies by medical drugs goes far beyond what some people call “over-prescribing.” This isn’t just a tilt in the wrong direction. It isn’t simply errors of judgment compounded by the number of doctors dispensing medicines.

Those are all polite terms suggesting the situation can be corrected through a show of better professional judgment. That will never happen.

Countries of the world are literally being assaulted by pharmaceutical companies and their foot-soldier doctors. It’s chemical warfare.

To even begin to see light at the end of the tunnel, hundreds of millions of people must add themselves to the rolls of those who already are pursuing better health through natural means.

Not even the Nazis and their dearly beloved cartel, the monster IG Farben, dreamed of the day when the citizenry would line up and demand to ingest more and more life-destroying chemicals.

What about the FDA, the federal agency responsible for certifying all medical drugs “safe and effective,” before release for public use in the US?

The FDA is completely aware of the monstrous death toll and the injuries stemming from the very drugs they’re approving—but they take zero responsibility.

On an FDA website page, “Preventable Adverse Drug Reactions: A Focus on Drug Interactions,” [6] the agency discusses the “problem”—but as you can see from the title, they’re framing the conversation in terms of “interactions,” as if drugs are maiming and killing people because they are accidentally combining effects. This is a gross lie.

Here are quotes from the FDA page, which come just after trying to pawn off absurdly low drug-death and injury numbers:

“However, other studies conducted on hospitalized patient populations have placed much higher estimates on the overall incidence of serious ADRs [adverse drugs reactions]. These studies estimate that 6.7% of hospitalized patients have a serious adverse drug reaction with a fatality rate of 0.32%.2 If these estimates are correct, then there are more than 2,216,000 serious ADRs in hospitalized patients, causing over 106,000 deaths annually. If true, then ADRs are the 4th leading cause of death—ahead of pulmonary disease, diabetes, AIDS, pneumonia, accidents, and automobile deaths.”

“These statistics do not include the number of ADRs that occur in ambulatory settings. Also, it is estimated that over 350,000 ADRs occur in U.S. nursing homes each year.3 The exact number of ADRs is not certain and is limited by methodological considerations. However, whatever the true number is, ADRs represent a significant public health problem that is, for the most part, preventable.”

Yes, preventable, if any government were determined to neutralize the pharmaceutical armies ravaging humanity.

But that is not the case.

Governments are backing the killers.

    True Account:

    My wife is from a large family. The Eldest sibling is male. He bears the name of an Angel. I know him, he IS an angel, with a “wicked” (as the Bostonians’ say) Sense of-humor. He’s fond of gentle tricks & is Legend within Family, to have played, his siblings many times. I’ve heard a million stories of He.

    On his birthday, he was prized with a BB rifle. She, He, & two other siblings, a boy & girl, close-to-her-age, attended the test-shooting. He The Elder, is a number-of-years, in advance of-the-three.

    As they left their Safe Abode, Mother warned “stand behind Him, so you don’t get shot.”

    He set up a tin can, took aim, & pulled His Tigger.

    It ricocheted off said can & hit my wife’s solar plexus. She was bearing a thickish, blue Autumn jacket.

    She felt the tiny-ding against her child-tummy.

    The Three screamed, wide eyed with abandon, & in Union & in Time, “You’ve been shot!”

    She ran home to momma for a look-see.

    She was & is, just fine.
    No matter.


    “I’M HIT!”
    ~ Kramer (ala Seinfeld)

    Altho’… There are Many, who have received the shot & ain’t holding up so well.

    And that IS Wicked.

    Thanx for the warning-to-All, Jon, about the non-Good Dr. “F”, Written so long ago & Well-in-Advance.

    I wish & wish, within my Wishin’-Well, that They’d cordially invite you, to speak on Our Behalf, in those “hallowed” Senate Halls.

    You’re an Angel too.

    He slowly & gently,
    slides his chips forward,
    In Advance.
    Across the veined-Oaken,

    Who can Tell…


    “And I heard a million voices singing
    Acting to the stories
    That they had heard about

    Does one child know the secret
    & can say it!

    {Whirling-blackened-Dragon-ed-Scene/Seen on Screen}
    It all come out, along without, you…”

    (The Ancient: Giants Under the Sun)

    Rattling-metallic cymbals…
    …strumming & plucking, wood guitar.


    I can almost Hear it.
    I can surely feel it.

    What is the latest count for scripts per person in the USA? You quoted 4 billion in 2011.

    This will not end as long as there are enough sheep. Even if all parasites would be death, somebody else will appear to take advantage of the sheep.

  4. Tom Paddestoel says:

    Healing was a thing for the royals and the wealthy. Medicines (symptoms reduction) were for the labour force and the slaves, so they could get back to work quickly.

    Nothing has changed.

    Mankind needs to realize that they are farmed like the very animals that they grow to eat and that’s what these forces are doing to the human race and they need to be eliminated

    Jon, can you do an article on the Blackrock/Vanguard connection (aka biggest shareholders) of most of the Pharma companies, MSM, Google, Facebook, Twitter, Apple, Amazon, Microsoft and just about every big corporation in the world

    You could run these re-posts all summer! – I have a lot of catching up to do – and you need time off!

    My mother was one such ADR in a LTC (nursing home). Almost died; MDs were not familiar with the warnings on the package labeling (which I subsequently found on the www). “Care should be exercised when prescribing for the elderly” — that’s close – Exact quote: “If vomiting develops discontinue use”. Vomiting developed (for almost 3 weeks) they did NOT discontinue use – An ER MD (thankfully) DID discontinue use “not a wise choice” she remarked apropos the LTC MDs. My mom recovered for another pretty good year.

    Don’t know if you’ve heard of the book, “Deadly Medicines and Organized Crime by Peter Gotzsche, written in 2013? Just received it and it contains a wealth of information and references and confirms the ‘evilness’ of Big Medicine/Pharma. It details what many have suspected for decades….a real eye-opener for unknowing “RX and OTC drug takers.”

  10. Pisces says:

    No wonder why they heavily suppress and censor cheap and natural treatments and cures from the public view as much as they possibly can, right? Just to keep making astronomical profits by destroying people’s health as their business model. Not only that, pharmaceutical industries around the world are financially capable of faking any studies that’ll get their synthetic drugs approved and certified for public use. Big pharma, big governments and big corporations etc. support each other to make huge profits while destroying everyone else around them, and they continue to gain more power over the whole world. So it’s crucial for people to know about there are safe and natural treatments and cures available to them that work when it comes to healing the body instead of just masking a problem with synthetic drugs that create even more problems for the disease they are “supposed” to fix. But the drugs are not designed to cure a disease.

    I live in the UK. I have felt for a long time like the odd one out because I don’t take prescription drugs.

    What I found was if you need medical help they won’t give you certain drugs. Other drugs are ousted on you more or less. Apparently doctors are paid well to prescribe asthma drugs. I got them easily even though I’ve never had asthma in my life. So did my son. He came home loaded with inhalers.He doesn’t have asthma either although being a hypochondriac he got convinced he had it. I managed to make him realise he didn’t have asthma thankfully. What does that tell you?

  12. Sue says:

    And doctors are punished for resisting the mass poisoning, with fines and loss of license to practice.

    There is a doctor on trial in California right now for writing medical exemptions to vaccination.

    A predator sleeks through the tall grass for cover just before he strikes.

    Hezbollah terrorist , and Hamas hide behind civilians.
    The WEF hid behind the guise of humanitarian globalization.Most no more than those who claim to be of our brother Judah but are not just like
    the IMF that also hides behind the idea it is not a private fleecing organization.
    The enemies in Congress hide behind the constitution, and invoke prayer while steadfast at removing both.

    They all hide from the horrific mistakes made, of dangles, and the offer they should have refused,that guarantees both secrecy, and compliance.

    The World Economic Forums plan for communistic globalization with complete control over the masses through Technocracy as already implemented in China with their Anti Christ communist leadership slave labor partners .

    They have activated all their assets for all to see. Exposed just before they strike. Your enslavement, and the “ final solution “ written on the Georgia Guide Stones in multiple languages is the goal.

    All anyone of WE THE PEOPLE sheeple needs to do is to rise up and notice the wolf that is exposed in full attack mode to save ourselves. Awakening of the sheeple was the job of patriots.
    WE THE SHEEPLE awakened by their shepherds.
    To all the patriot shepherds in our time ,I salute you .
    God Bless You , and Godspeed!

    Which of these two oaths more accurately describes today’s Medical Industrial Complex:

    Oath #1: “Do no harm.”

    Oath #2: “Do NOTHING BUT HARM” (but NEVER ADMIT that’s what you’re doing)

    Thanks Jon! They are ‘war criminals’…faithless, heartless, mindless war-criminals…

  16. ReluctantWarrior says:

    The current medical paradigm must be changed. The good news is that we, as individuals, can change it. The single most revolutionary thing we can do is to take our own healthcare back into our own hands. If one is healthy then the new paradigm is to create and maintain radiant health and practice prevention through healthy nutrition and life style. If one is not healthy then one needs to follow a program like Dean Ornish’s ‘Undo It’ and literally re-capture your health. Having a holistic practitioner who may or may not be an MD is a good safeguard. This practitioner would be knowledgeable in the field of indigenous medical practice and the ancient art of medicine as practiced in Ayurveda or TCM. These practitioners do not separate body, mind and spirit. They are integrative in their approach. Stay away from all pharmaceuticals and change them out for neutraceuticals. Nature has a medicine for everything. Do not take any over the counter medicines either especially Ibuprofen and Acetaminophen unless under the most painful circumstances. I had a knee that was bothering me and I began taking a high grade form of Turmeric. Unfortunately it took about 4 days for it to kick in so I had to take a little Advil in the interim. What happened though was eventually the Turmeric worked and the inflammation in my knee went away. It has not returned. The turmeric seemed to quell that area of inflammation for good. Advil is only a stop gap solution. We must become our own doctors!
