Alert to readers: This Wednesday night, November 1, 10PM-midnight, PACIFIC TIME (consult listings for other time zones), I’ll be doing two hours with George Noory on Coast to Coast AM. The subject: THE OPIOID CRISIS.

Help spread the word. I’ll be exposing and explaining the crisis and its extreme danger to populations all over the world.

For now: Federal agents arrest drug-company founder for opioid racketeering

Federal agents have arrested John Kapoor, the founder of drug-company Insys, for opioid racketeering.

FBI spokesman Harold Shaw said the arrest marks “an important step in holding pharmaceutical executives responsible for their part in the opioid crisis.”

Among the charges against Kapoor: promoting off-label uses for the company’s painkiller, Subsys, and bribing physicians to write prescriptions.

Essentially, the charge is: “you’re a drug trafficker.”

Doctors can prescribe drugs for conditions beyond those listed in the FDA’s specific approval. That’s what “off-label use” means. But the drugs’ manufacturers can’t actively promote or pay doctors to write off-label prescriptions. That’s a crime.

In my recent investigation of the opioid trafficking pipeline, I pointed out that the top of the supply chain, in many cases, is the manufacturer.

The corrupt company does one of two things (or both): it ships extraordinary numbers of opioid pills to distributors, with full knowledge it is engaging in trafficking; or it promotes and pays doctors to write unnecessary prescriptions for the opioids.

The latest estimates: in 2016, two million Americans were addicted to opioids;

Since the year 2000, 300,000 Americans have died from opioid overdoses;

64,000 of those deaths occurred in 2016.

Founder John Kapoor’s company, Insys, sells an opioid, Subsys, that contains Fentanyl, which is 50 times more powerful than morphine.

The truth is (and no one is reporting it), morphine alone is capable of blocking severe pain. The scores of synthetic opioids drug companies have developed, and the FDA has approved, are largely unnecessary. The proliferation of the synthetics has fueled the opioid crisis. These are the pills that are finding their way to addicts.

In addition to this, new designer opioids, coming out of underground Chinese labs, into Mexico, and up into the US, are so powerful one tiny dose can cause instant death. In many cases the street dealers have no idea the drugs they are selling contain these lethal compounds.

Tune in to Coast to Coast AM and listen to my extensive rundown on the opioid crisis and its clear and present danger.

The current killer opioid epidemic and the great 19th century Opium Wars against China

Alert: Some of these drugs are not simply addicting; they cause instant death.

by Jon Rappoport

In this article, I present several pieces of information side by side. These would be starting points for further investigation.

ONE: The UK Daily Mail: “…not just heroin. It had been mixed with two lethal man-made opioids – fentanyl, a painkiller 100 times more potent than morphine; and carfentanyl, an elephant tranquilliser 10,000 times stronger than street heroin.”

“Now the drugs have arrived in Britain – and a spate of sudden deaths in Hull, the worst incident in the UK so far, shows their devastating impact. Just a few grains of carfentanyl – 0.00002g – can be fatal.”

“These lethal drugs have begun cropping up across the country – first found in Blyth, Northumberland, then suspected in deaths and drug busts from Leeds to London, St Albans to Southampton, Wakefield to Winchester, and Wales to Northern Ireland.”

TWO: In the 19th century, selling opium to China was very big business for England. Of course, addictive opium was devastating to China, who tried to stop the trade. Two Opium Wars against China (1839-42 and 1856-60) followed. The Encyclopedia Britannica states:

“In each case the foreign powers were victorious and gained commercial privileges and legal and territorial concessions in China [including the uninterrupted sale of opium]. The conflicts marked the start of the era of unequal treaties and other inroads on Qing sovereignty that helped weaken and ultimately topple the dynasty [which had ruled since 1644]…”

It would be hard to overstate the lasting fury and resentment of Chinese rulers against the foreign powers who defeated and humiliated them in the Opium Wars.

THREE: Flash forward. FOX Business, March 31, 2017. Headline: “DEA: Made in China Lethal Opioid Fueling US Drug Epidemic.”

“A homemade designer version of fentanyl, the highly addictive opioid which is similar to morphine but is 50 to 100 times more potent, has been the center of drug busts across the country this month—with law enforcement pinpointing its origin from underground labs in China. The DEA says the China-U.S. supply is further fueling the country’s drug epidemic.”

“’This [Chinese] stuff is unbelievably potent. It is so powerful that even a tiny amount can kill you,’ DEA spokesman Rusty Payne tells FOX Business. ‘China is by far the most significant manufacturer of illicit designer synthetic drugs. There is so much manufacturing of new drugs, [it’s] amazing what is coming out of China. Hundreds of [versions], including synthetic fentanyl and fentanyl-based compounds’.”

“China only made the drug [fentanyl] illegal in 2015, and at that point black market Chinese labs began increasing production of their own versions, including the one turning up recently across the country [the US] called furanyl fentanyl.”

“’While heroin gets harder to buy on the street or from a dealer, fentanyl comes via FedEx,’ Brad Lamm, CEO of Intervention.com, tells FOX Business.”

“Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez announced this week details on a mail-order furanyl fentanyl smuggling ring bust. The operation had been bringing the drug — which has been dubbed ‘White China’ — into the U.S from Asia. NYPD Chief of Detective Bob Boyce said that this was the first time investigators have seen this type of fentanyl in New York City.”

“Also this week, Cincinnati Customs and Border Protection agents said they seized 83 shipments of illegal synthetic drugs, including 36 pounds of furanyl fentanyl, from China.”

“[DEA spokesman] Payne says China has ‘really stepped up lately,’ working hand-in-hand with the U.S. to help curb this growing problem. In January, DEA acting administrator Chuck Rosenberg was invited to China to meet with Beijing drug control officials at the invitation of the China Ministry of Public Security.”

FOUR: The Boston Globe: “An extremely powerful drug used as an elephant tranquilizer has quickly become a new killer in the nation’s opioid epidemic, and New England authorities and health workers are bracing for its arrival.”

“The drug, carfentanil, is a synthetic opioid that is 10,000 times stronger than morphine and 100 times more potent than fentanyl, another deadly synthetic opioid.”

“The Drug Enforcement Administration has issued a nationwide alert about the drug, which its acting chief called ‘crazy dangerous.’ In Massachusetts, State Police have warned their crime lab staff about how to handle carfentanil during analysis. Even inhaling the drug or absorbing it through a cut can be fatal.”

“Law enforcement and health officials believe most users do not know they are ingesting carfentanil, which apparently is often mistakenly thought to be heroin or a mixture of heroin and fentanyl, a weaker but still lethal synthetic opioid.”

“If carfentanil’s trade route is similar to that of fentanyl, the path stretches from Chinese manufacturers to Mexican processors to smugglers who supply dealers in the United States, law enforcement officials said.”

“’There’s no quality control, so when it gets here the distributors don’t know what they have and the user has no idea,’ said Timothy Desmond, a special agent with the New England division of the DEA. ‘That’s where it’s a game of Russian roulette’.”

“Hamilton County officials are baffled by the marketing strategy behind such a lethal drug. ‘It doesn’t really make sense that you would want to kill your customers’,” Fallon said.

“Law enforcement officials also are concerned that carfentanil will harm first responders. The DEA has warned police not to conduct field tests on seized drugs that might contain carfentanil. Instead, the agency urged officers to secure their samples and deliver them only to colleagues with training and equipment to handle the drug.”

Ohio shocker: 793 million opioid drug doses prescribed in one year

Ohio shocker: 793 million opioid drug doses prescribed in one year

Here’s why zombies are real

by Jon Rappoport

June 6, 2017

The state government of Ohio has filed a lawsuit against five drug companies: Teva, Allergen, Johnson & Johnson, Purdue, and Endo.

The suit accuses these companies of unlawful marketing practices that have led to Ohio’s opioid addiction “problem.”

Here’s the big one: the suit states that, in 2012, a staggering 793 million doses of opioid drugs were prescribed to Ohio citizens. That translates to an average of 68 pills for each person in Ohio.

The suit accuses the drug makers of conspiring to influence opinion leaders and various medical groups. This marketing blitz resulted in deceptive treatment guidelines, false information delivered at medical conferences, and misleading “science” articles—all designed to minimize the dire effects of opioids.

Well, yes, these painkillers (e.g., OxyContin) do kill pain. In the process, they also creation addiction and turn minds to mush.

Apparently, Ohio is pretty much in a collective trance state. We’re talking Zombification. 793 million opioid doses in one year.

Don’t forget the doctors who prescribe the drugs. As a group, they can’t care about their patients’ state of mind. Just load people up to the eyeballs with chemical pacification.

If you think this over-prescription epidemic corresponds to the actual amount of physical pain Ohio citizens are experiencing, think again. The drugs are obviously being handed out for other reasons: to sustain and feed addiction; to “treat depression”; to “manage dissatisfaction with life.” In other words, drug companies are promoting an ongoing profit bonanza for themselves. The human consequences don’t matter.

Keep in mind that drug companies pour advertising money like water into television programming—including the news.

The effects of the news and the effects of opioid drugs are a marriage made for the ages.

They both deliver hypnosis.

What a marvelous coincidence, right? Contemplate it.

Just so happens that the news, with its outright lies, useless information overload, misdirection, omissions of vital facts, lack of context, refusal to investigate deep scandals, cultivation of Voices of Authority, attention-span shortening, and various other strategies designed for trance-induction and mental passivity…join together with an opioid chemical brain sledgehammer that wipes out the possibility of rational thought.

Both brought to you by your friend, Big Pharma.
