GOVERNACIDE: Ten Point Plan To Stop Covid-19 in Its Tracks – LewRockwell

1. Focus on the most at-risk groups for mortal outcomes: nursing home residents; African Americans; hospital workers; the very old whose immune systems are not up to par; the very young who have an undeveloped immune system.  Focus on educating nursing home directors, hospital infection control officers, African American community leaders, school nurses.  Don’t rely on top-down instruction from government sources.  Utilize local resources to promote public health, sanitation, and immunity.  Gain the public’s trust via education.  Government offers no drugs or vaccines and was unprepared for this current epidemic, not even having sufficient masks, blood testing or sanitation practices in place.

SO WHAT!

It’s like that joke about telling you useless information.

“No guessing required.’ answered the farmer. ‘You showed up here even though nobody called you; you want to get paid for an answer I already knew, to a question I never asked. You tried to show me how much smarter than me you are; and you don’t know a thing about cows.

So what if I get perfectly accurate information that of a certain date and time, I have the antibodies or not.

If I have the antibodies, does that mean I have had it and can’t get it again. Or not?

If I don’t have the antibodies, does that mean I haven’t had it and can get it.

It’s frustrating.

  • The aircraft carrier shows that the “experts” don’t understand how it infects others.
  • The fudged death numbers (high and low) shows that the “experts” don’t understand that stats of infection and deaths.
  • The smokers shows that the “experts” don’t understand the effect of nicotine on the pandemic.
  • The minority death rate shows that the “experts” don’t understand the demographics.
  • Sweden’s experience is confounding.
  • China’s “opaque” data further confused everything.
  • I can’t believe anything that the politicians and bureaucrats say is true.
  • AND, the USA’s politicians and bureaucrats don’t make clarity any easier with their self-serving press conferences!

It’s a good way to to die. No bleach required.

So I just shrug my shoulders and plod along.

GOVERNACIDE: The Coronavirus Hoax – LewRockwell

Governments love crises because when the people are fearful they are more willing to give up freedoms for promises that the government will take care of them. After 9/11, for example, Americans accepted the near-total destruction of their civil liberties in the PATRIOT Act’s hollow promises of security. It is ironic to see the same Democrats who tried to impeach President Trump last month for abuse of power demanding that the Administration grab more power and authority in the name of fighting a virus that thus far has killed less than 100 Americans. Declaring a pandemic emergency on Friday, President …

That is not to say the disease is harmless. Without question people will die from coronavirus. Those in vulnerable categories should take precautions to limit their risk of exposure. But we have seen this movie before. Government over-hypes a threat as an excuse to grab more of our freedoms. When the “threat” is over, however, they never give us our freedoms back.

GOVERNACIDE: GM blamed Brooke Melton for her death, covered up real cause

“Two years after recalling 30 million cars, GM sold a record 10 million vehicles worldwide and reported a profit of $12.5 billion, which was a record,” Cooper writes. “Even though GM paid a $900 million fine to settle criminal charges with the Justice Department, no individual was ever charged with a crime.”

Does this illustrate the incestuous relationship between the corporation and the Gooferment?

Remember that GM was derisively called “Gooferment Motors” after BHO44 screwed the GM bondholders and “saved” GM from bankruptcy.  The Gooferment had a bias in favor of GM’s continued existence.

GOVERNACIDE: Coronavirus: Who is controlling your information? (PODCAST) | Sharyl Attkisson

Is the government giving us the full picture on Coronavirus and other health epidemics?Government officials haven’t always done so in the past when it came to swine flu and flu shots.Do you trust them to control your information online?

Source: Coronavirus: Who is controlling your information? (PODCAST) | Sharyl Attkisson

# – # – # – # – #

In a podcast that is sure to reignite the vax – antivax debate, Sharyl Attkisson blows the lid off what should be a national expose.  In this podcast, she demonstrates that the politicians and bureaucrats are controlling what information “We, The Sheeple” can find online, that they are deliberately overstating the number of coronavirus infections — “You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.” — Rahm Emanuel —, and that the regular flu vaccine kills older over-65 people.  AND that the Gooferment knows it is doing this.

Time for draining the swamp.  The CDC, FDA, and all the others involved to be terminated.  Not reprimanded, demoted, or give any other slap in the risk.  They can’t be trusted to work at a McDonald’s without retraining.

I’ve always been suspicious of the safety of ALL vaccines because of the mere existence of the  “Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System”!

Now Attkisson has reported the overstatement of the coronavirus numbers as well as the problems when FDS / CDC “fast track” approvals.

The Gooferment is immoral, ineffective, and inefficient. As well as untrustworthy.

This just proves how you can’t trust the Gooferment with your health and your life.

No flu shots for me.

GOVERNACIDE: FDR was responsible for Pearl Harbor

Pearl Harbor Day: One For Which FDR Shoulders ‘Infamy’
by Tyler Durden
Fri, 12/07/2018 – 21:45
Authored by Daniel Oliver, op-ed via The Daily Caller,

*** begin quote ***

On December 7, 1941 the Empire of Japan bombed the U.S. Pacific Fleet which was stationed in Pearl Harbor on the Hawaiian island of Oahu. In addressing Congress the next day, President Roosevelt called it “a date which will live in infamy.”

But Roosevelt’s reputation should live in infamy too. The line that Roosevelt enthusiasts and left-wing historians have peddled for so many years is that the attack was a complete surprise.

Here’s a sample from The American Pageant, a typical left-wing American history textbook widely used in American high schools:

Officials in Washington, having “cracked” the top-secret code of the Japanese, knew that Tokyo’s decision was for war … Roosevelt, misled by Japanese ship movements in the Far East, evidently expected the blow to fall on British Malaya or on the Philippines. No one in high authority in Washington seems to have believed that the Japanese were either strong enough or foolhardy enough to strike Hawaii.

That’s the left’s version, and it’s in line with the rest of the “fake history” they want American high school students to learn. The Education and Research Institute (ERI — of which I am chairman) has written a critique of The American Pageant, which tells a more accurate story about Pearl Harbor and scores of other events in American history.

The American Pageant gives almost no blame to FDR for the Pearl Harbor disaster — even though the United States had broken the Japanese secret code and knew an attack was imminent. The textbook authors assure us that “no one in high authority in Washington seems to have believed that the Japanese” had the ability to launch such an attack.

But that is simply wrong. Some high-ranking members of the U.S. Navy did believe a surprise attack at Pearl Harbor was possible, but FDR disagreed with them and he removed those contrary voices from positions of power.

The commander of the U.S. Pacific Fleet in Pearl Harbor was Admiral J. O. (Joe) Richardson. Unlike Roosevelt, Richardson did not underestimate the Japanese — and he had studied them and the dangerous Pearl Harbor location thoroughly.

Richardson said that a simulated aerial attack that the U.S. had conducted at Pearl Harbor in 1932 proved that torpedo planes could cripple any fleet stationed there.

Even before Roosevelt ordered the Pacific Fleet to stay at Pearl Harbor indefinitely, Richardson had protested that keeping the fleet there posed a danger to every ship. He had been attempting to monitor the military movements of the Japanese to give the United States time to evacuate Pearl Harbor in case of danger

*** end quote ***

My Uncles always believed that FDR was responsible for Pearl Harbor.  And NOT in the sense of, “the buck stops here”!  They knew from the (real; not fake news) that military decisions were made at the White House. (One of them worked for decades in the Navy Department.)

FDR needed to end the Great Depression that was caused by the politicians and bureaucrats messing with the economy.  What better way to ensure prosperity than by a war that would never come to America.  

Argh!

“We, The Sheeple” don’t recognize the politicians and bureaucrats as “war criminals” and traitors to the civil society.

How many more people have to die before this “terrible genie” of Gooferment is put back in Pandora’s box?

Time for another revolution?

The Atomic Bombings Reconsidered

That redefinition of morality was a product of World War II, which included such barbarities as Germany’s systematic murder of six million Jews and Japan’s rape of Nanking. While the worst atrocities were perpetrated by the Axis, all the major nation-states sliced away at the moral code — often to the applause of their leaders and citizens alike. By 1945 there were few moral restraints left in what had become virtually a total war. Even F.D.R.’s prewar concern for sparing enemy civilians had fallen by the wayside. In that new moral climate, any nation that had the A-bomb would probably have used it against enemy peoples. British leaders as well as Joseph Stalin endorsed the act. Germany’s and Japan’s leaders surely would have used it against cities. America was not morally unique — just technologically exceptional. Only it had the bomb, and so only it used it.

GOVERNACIDE: A Mysterious Infection — and secrecy will kill us

2019-Apr-10

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/deadly-germs-lost-cures-a-mysterious-infection-spanning-the-globe-in-a-climate-of-secrecy/ar-BBVFPi7

Deadly germs, Lost cures: A Mysterious Infection, Spanning the Globe in a Climate of Secrecy

*** begin quote *** 

Last May, an elderly man was admitted to the Brooklyn branch of Mount Sinai Hospital for abdominal surgery. A blood test revealed that he was infected with a newly discovered germ as deadly as it was mysterious. Doctors swiftly isolated him in the intensive care unit.

The germ, a fungus called Candida auris, preys on people with weakened immune systems, and it is quietly spreading across the globe. Over the last five years, it has hit a neonatal unit in Venezuela, swept through a hospital in Spain, forced a prestigious British medical center to shut down its intensive care unit, and taken root in India, Pakistan and South Africa.

Recently C. auris reached New York, New Jersey and Illinois, leading the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to add it to a list of germs deemed “urgent threats.”

The man at Mount Sinai died after 90 days in the hospital, but C. auris did not. Tests showed it was everywhere in his room, so invasive that the hospital needed special cleaning equipment and had to rip out some of the ceiling and floor tiles to eradicate it.

*** and ***

Antibiotics and antifungals are both essential to combat infections in people, but antibiotics are also used widely to prevent disease in farm animals, and antifungals are also applied to prevent agricultural plants from rotting. Some scientists cite evidence that rampant use of fungicides on crops is contributing to the surge in drug-resistant fungi infecting humans.

Yet as the problem grows, it is little understood by the public — in part because the very existence of resistant infections is often cloaked in secrecy.

With bacteria and fungi alike, hospitals and local governments are reluctant to disclose outbreaks for fear of being seen as infection hubs. Even the C.D.C., under its agreement with states, is not allowed to make public the location or name of hospitals involved in outbreaks. State governments have in many cases declined to publicly share information beyond acknowledging that they have had cases.

All the while, the germs are easily spread — carried on hands and equipment inside hospitals; ferried on meat and manure-fertilized vegetables from farms; transported across borders by travelers and on exports and imports; and transferred by patients from nursing home to hospital and back.

C. auris, which infected the man at Mount Sinai, is one of dozens of dangerous bacteria and fungi that have developed resistance. Yet, like most of them, it is a threat that is virtually unknown to the public.

Other prominent strains of the fungus Candida — one of the most common causes of bloodstream infections in hospitals — have not developed significant resistance to drugs, but more than 90 percent of C. auris infections are resistant to at least one drug, and 30 percent are resistant to two or more drugs, the C.D.C. said.

Dr. Lynn Sosa, Connecticut’s deputy state epidemiologist, said she now saw C. auris as “the top” threat among resistant infections. “It’s pretty much unbeatable and difficult to identity,” she said.

*** and ***

One author of the article in Mycoses, a doctor at the hospital, said in an email that the hospital did not want him to speak to journalists because it “is concerned about the public image of the hospital.”

The secrecy infuriates patient advocates, who say people have a right to know if there is an outbreak so they can decide whether to go to a hospital, particularly when dealing with a nonurgent matter, like elective surgery.

“Why the heck are we reading about an outbreak almost a year and a half later — and not have it front-page news the day after it happens?” said Dr. Kevin Kavanagh, a physician in Kentucky and board chairman of Health Watch USA, a nonprofit patient advocacy group. “You wouldn’t tolerate this at a restaurant with a food poisoning outbreak.”

*** end quote ***

The old Irish friends and relatives used to believe that going to the hospital was a death sentence.  Maybe they weren’t completely wrong.  I used to think it was superstition; “sick people go to the hospital; sick people die; it’s the people; not the hospital”.  Now I’m not so sure. 

Again, like in the vaccine controversy, where the side effects are hidden and Big Pharma is insulated from lawsuits, the secrecy gives rise to “common sense”.  If the experts will not tell us the truth, human beings will figure it out.  

Like AIDS in the gay community, sometimes plain old ordinary dumb humans have to piece together the jigsaw puzzle.  

With vaccines, I have personally seen the ravages of polio on a strong healthy child in my cousin William.  When the polio vaccine was announced, my family lined up all their children for it.  They also convinced the neighborhood.  Skeptics were brought to visit William and they became converts.

That being said, the secrecy of the Gooferment aka CDC and FDA, along with the horror stories about autism skyrocketing, I understand parents’ reluctance to make their children “lab rats”.  Maybe, if they could trust the “medical establishment”, then the fear would be palpable.

What do we have to do to correct this situation?

  • Politicians and bureaucrats must be dragged to the discussion.  Kicking and screaming if need be.  Transparency is the order of the day.  Facts cure ignorance and fear.  Let’s admit that there is a problem.  This is America, home of the brave.  Let’s face our fears with bravery and courage. To do that we need leaders to stand up and tell the “hard facts of life”.  The world is a dangerous place; ignoring the facts makes it even more so.
  • Big Pharma has to give up the “vaccine secrecy” and the financial protection of the indemnification laws.
  • The “Medical Establishment” (i.e., doctors, hospitals, their lawyers) have to worry less about “their image” and more about effective solutions.
  • “We, The Sheeple” need to get with the program.  Don’t get your medical diagnosis from “Doctor Google” or the latest “celebrity” with a miracle cure.  Do be an informed active participant in your own medical care.  (It enrages me when I go to medical appointment and the staff is surprised when I know and have documented everything I take and why as well as all my own medical records. At the very least, people can put the prescription bottles in a zip lock and bring it with them.)

Seem simple enough to me.

Argh!

GOVERNACIDE: Why are less than 1 percent of adverse vaccine reactions are reported to VAERS

Manufactured Crisis — HPV, Hype and Horror
By Joseph Mercola — Mercola.com
December 10, 2018

*** begin quote ***

The HPV vaccine Gardasil was granted European license in February 2006,1 followed by U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval that same year in June.2 Gardasil was controversial in the U.S. from the beginning, with vaccine safety activists questioning the quality of the clinical trials used to fast track the vaccine to licensure.3 Merck, which manufactures and distributes the HPV vaccine Gardasil, has worked with a global health group called PATH4 to get the vaccine approved worldwide.

Lauded as a silver bullet against cervical cancer, the vaccine has since wrought havoc on the lives of young girls across the world.

“Manufactured Crisis — HPV, Hype and Horror,” a film by The Alliance for Natural Health, delves into the all too often ignored dark side of this unnecessary vaccine, interviewing families whose lives have been forever altered after their young daughters suffered life-threatening or lethal side effects following Gardasil vaccination. Says Barbara Loe Fisher, president and cofounder of the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC):

“The tragic story of Gardasil vaccine is one that is playing out in real time in the homes of trusting parents, who thought they were doing the right thing to try to make their daughters ‘one less,’ and in the 21st century cyberspace forum of public opinion as well as on television.”

*** and ***

Considering the U.S. government’s financial interest in the sale of HPV vaccine, this is about as clear a conflict of interest as you can get, yet Markowitz was allowed to be part of the team that designed the scope and parameters of the review.

Risk Benefit Analysis

In the film, Norma Erickson, president of Sanevax, Inc., an “international HPV vaccine information clearinghouse” in Troy, Montana, points out that while the cervical cancer rate in the U.S. is 12 per 100,000, by Merck’s own admission, Gardasil may cause 2,300 serious adverse events per 100,000. 

Is it really reasonable to risk 2,300 serious adverse events — which includes sudden death — in the hopes of preventing 12 cases of cervical cancer out of 100,000?

Trial data from Merck also shows that Gardasil vaccinations may actually increase your risk of cervical cancer by 44.6 percent if you have been exposed to HPV strains 16 or 18 prior to vaccination.20 (The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has made this document inaccessible, but we’ve saved a copy of it for posterity.)

Professor Marcos Mazzuka, a pediatrician specializing in vaccine injuries in Madrid, Spain, agrees that the HPV vaccine is not safe, and is not worth the risk, as side effects are not limited to rash or fever but are severe and long-lasting.

GOVERNACIDE: California’s Forest Fire Tragedy | Hoover Institution

Every bit as important is the major change in the philosophy of land use management. Much of the forest land in California is now owned by the state and federal government.  These lands have proved far more vulnerable to forest fires than properties owned by private groups.  Private lands are managed with the goals of conservation and production.  The management of public lands has been buffeted by legislative schemes driven by strong ideological commitments. Writing last year, Republican Congressman Tom McClintock noted that his air inspections revealed a distressing pattern: “The [privately] managed forests are green, healthy and thriving. The neglected federal forests are densely overcrowded and often scarred by fire because we can’t even salvage the fire-killed timber while it still has value.”

GOVERNACIDE: … “punish the innocent”?

2018-Mar-10

http://keywestlou.com/kate-miano-1000-strong/

*** begin quote ***

I do not understand police behavior involving the recent Douglas High School shootings.

The police officer on duty did not go in the building. I would have assumed his first responsibility would have been to confront the attacker.

Two more officers appeared on the scene. They did not go in. The claim is they were told to establish a perimeter and not enter.

In the meantime, people were being killed inside. I have to believe if they did do something, some lives would have been saved. Even one would have justified their engaging the attacker.

The story gets better.

Two members of the Miramar Police Department were in the area. Both detectives, both members of the SWAT team. They immediately responded. What they did when they arrived, I do not know.

They have been suspended. They have been required to surrender their SWAT issued rifles. The reason for the chastisement: They failed to follow protocol by not getting permission from a superior prior to rushing to the scene.

Unusual circumstances call for unusual activity. Initiative becomes the order of the day. Not with the Miramar Police Department, however. The two officers are being punished for doing the right thing.

*** end quote ***

Back in my Wall Street days, there was an oft quoted adage: “Punish the innocent; reward the guilty; and promote the uninvolved.” That’s sure sounds like “punishing the innocent” to me.

There’s no doubt that this was a great example of Gooferment “protection”.

  • Create a gun free zone and have a big soft target rich environment.
  • Ignore the many red flags REPEATEDLY.
  • The Gooferment Skrule bureaucrats don’t prosecute lawbreakers under some absurd policy about breaking the “school to prison pipeline”.
  • Local law enforcement ignoring CRIMINAL FELONY acts by the eventual mass shooter (i.e., assaults; brandishing; threats; menacing).

And the crowning achievement — the FBI TWICE ignores “tips” on a potential “mass school shooter”.

As law-abiding gun owner, why are my RIGHTS under attack?

Does anyone expect the Gooferment to protect you?

You must be delusional.

GOVERNACIDE: The opioid “epidemic” has the Gooferment’s “fingerprints” all over it

How To Kill 300,000 Americans (And Get Away With It)
by Tyler Durden
Sun, 02/18/2018 – 11:26
Authored by Trey Goff via The Mises Institute

*** begin quote ***

If someone wanted to kill 300,000 Americans and get away with it, they could not have accomplished it more effectively than our government has accomplished it with the opioid epidemic.

If someone— let’s say good old Uncle Sam—wanted to kill 300,000 Americans, they would go about it as detailed in this step-by-step guide. This also just so happens to be precisely how our government did go about it.

Step 1 – In 1996, Uncle Sam would award a 17-year government patent monopoly to Purdue Pharma to be the exclusive supplier of OxyContin, an addictive and potentially deadly opioid painkiller. This would ensure that they had a massive multi-billion-dollar profit incentive to get as many people addicted as possible without any generic competition to keep this profit motive in check.

Step 2 – To further fuel the use of OxyContin, Uncle Sam would cover the cost of it through Medicaid and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). This would ensure that there were billions of dollars available to fund the purchase of massive quantities of the addictive and potentially deadly substance.

*** and ***

Step 16 – After vast numbers of Americans had switched to injection drug use and street heroin, and were using drugs alone and unsupervised, Uncle Sam would then make the street drugs as deadly as possible.Uncle Sam would do this by “cracking down” on the supply side of heroin, knowing full well that illegal drug manufacturers would respond by making their drugs ever more potent, or finding ultra-potent additives to substitute into their street drugs to decrease the size and weight of the trafficked substance (this is known as the Iron Law of Prohibition). That would ensure that heroin was laced with fentanyl (a substance 100 times more potent than morphine) and that eventually fentanyl was replaced by the even more potent carfentanil (a substance 10,000 times more powerful than morphine). Uncle Sam would then ban drug checking under drug paraphernalia laws, ensuring users had no idea if the substance they were about to use was laced with fentanyl. With each increase in potency and adulteration, the death rate would continue to climb higher, and higher, and higher.

There you have it: the perfect guide to killing at least 300,000 people and getting away with it. It is an absolute tragedy that this also happens to be the precise course of action the US government has taken over the past few decades to create this perfect storm of addiction and death.

*** end quote ***

This is just Yet Another Example of “Gooferment creates a problem, “fixes it”, and creates new / worse problems; that in turn makes new problems that “only” the Gooferment can fix”!

When will “We, The Sheeple” learn that the Gooferment — at any level — doesn’t care about problems or “Unintended Consequences”.

Easy answer, end the “(pseudo) War on (some) Drugs” and treat drug addiction as a MEDICAL problem; not a legal one.

Questions to Ask About Amtrak 501
By RANDAL O’TOOLE

*** begin quote ***

The wreck of the 501–the Amtrak train that crashed near Seattle on Monday–is raising lots of questions about Amtrak operations, but they aren’t always the right ones. Here are some questions that should be asked and some of my preliminary answers. Answers from Amtrak (the operator), FRA (the funder), Sound Transit (the track owner), or WSDOT (the train owner) may differ.

*** and ***

2. Around 800 people die in railroad accidents a year. PTC would prevent only about 1 percent of these fatalities; far more would be saved by spending the same amount of money on better grade crossings and fencing of rail rights of way. Why do we put so much emphasis on an expensive technology that will do so little?

Answer: Accidents that PTC could have prevented tend to be more spectacular than people getting killed when a train hits their car at a grade crossing. This suggests that, when politicians decide where private businesses spend their money, it’ll get spent on grandiose programs rather than things that could really make a difference.

5. Why do so many reporters call this a high-speed train? The top speed between Portland and Seattle is 79 mph, the same as it has always been and the same as most other Amtrak routes. In technical terms, this was a conventional, low-speed train.

Answer: Though this was a low-speed train, it was funded by Obama’s high-speed rail fund. By repeatedly using the term “high-speed trains,” reporters are keeping that idea in the public consciousness, perhaps in the hopes that Trump’s infrastructure plan will include money for more such trains. (This could backfire, however, by making people think that high-speed trains are more dangerous. They aren’t–but they are a lot more expensive.)

*** and ***

Question: So are all trains obsolete?

Answer: No, only passenger trains are obsolete. Freight trains are extremely productive, and America has the finest, most advanced rail system in the world. That’s because it is mostly private and operates to produce profits, not to give politicians ribbon-cutting opportunities.

So the answer is that politicians and bureaucrats, their egos, cause the waste of Taxpayers’ wealth on their egos.

Argh!

Happy New Year; new year same as the old year.

GOVERNACIDE: Afghanistan war has failed spectacularly

Carlson: It’s time to end America’s longest war
By Brock Carlson on Oct 10, 2017 at 11:35 a.m.

*** begin quote ***

On Oct. 16, 2001, Operation Enduring Freedom, the invasion of Afghanistan, was launched by the U.S. government in response to the 9/11 attacks. Now, 16 years later, that war continues under a new name, with its third commander-in-chief, new generals, and is being fought by soldiers who were toddlers when it started.

The war has cost an estimated $2.7 trillion dollars, 2,403 US soldiers killed in action, over 1,000 coalition soldiers killed, over 20,000 US soldiers wounded, who knows how many suicides, and over 149,000 Afghans killed, who are people too after all.

The time has long passed for politicians and generals to stop the talk of “national security” and admit that our nation’s longest war has failed. Not only has it failed, but it has failed spectacularly.

Why can’t we just declare victory and bring all the girls and boys home now!

“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” — attributed to Einstein

I don’t care (really) about the money. After all, it’s a “sunk cost” and business school teaches that you should ignore it when making a decision about the future.

I do care about the human toll — vets, their families, the country’s moral fiber, and all the collateral damage.

Besides weren’t almost all of the hijackers Saudis? I never saw us hold them to account.

Argh!

GOVERNACIDE: The FDA and the AMA are killing us with bad advice

https://nutritionfacts.org/2017/06/13/should-cancer-patients-avoid-raw-fruits-and-vegetables/

Should Cancer Patients Avoid Raw Fruits and Vegetables?
Written By Michael Greger M.D. FACLM on June 13th, 2017

*** begin quote ***

Three randomized controlled trials were published, and not one supported the neutropenic diet. In the biggest study, an all-cooked diet was compared to one that allowed raw fruits and veggies, and there was no difference in infection and death rates. As a result of the study, the principal investigator at the MD Anderson Cancer Center described how their practice has changed and now everyone is allowed to eat their vegetables—a far cry from “please don’t eat the salads” 31 years earlier. 

Today, neither the Food and Drug Administration, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nor the American Cancer Society support the neutropenic diet. The real danger comes from pathogenic food-poisoning bacteria like Campylobacter, Salmonella, and E. coli. So we still have to keep patients away from risky foods like undercooked eggs, meat, dairy, and sprouts. At this point, though, there really shouldn’t be a debate about whether cancer patients should be on a neutropenic diet. Nevertheless, many institutions still tell cancer patients they shouldn’t eat fresh fruits and veggies. According to the latest survey, more than half of pediatric cancer doctors continue to prescribe these diets, though it’s quite variable even among those at the same institution. 

*** end quote ***

Doesn’t anyone else see the problem?

The FDA, Big Medicine, Big Pharma, and the AMA are all in bed together.

“Evidenced based medicine” is fine as long as it prescribes more expensive drugs to be dispense according to Gooferment diktats.

You really have to wonder how stupid we are not to revolt against them killing us. They are worse than the “witch doctor in the jungle”. At least, he’s not being paid off to mislead us. 

And, I’m sure that many doctors are faithfully trying save us. BUT, (and there is always a BIG butt), they have a disadvantage in that they are getting a biased message.

Of course, there’s no “profit” in telling people that meat is probably as bad as cigarettes for your health.

Now, it hard to teach “old dogs” new tricks. Again, but, it can be done.

Argh!

The supposed positive outcomes of WW2 are vastly overrated. 
By Perry Willis

*** begin quote ***

To understand whether there was any positive value in U.S. wars and interventions we’ve thus far covered…

  • Were early U.S. wars good or bad?
  • Did Teddy Roosevelt co-found the Japanese empire?
  • Did U.S. politicians choose the more evil side in World War 1?
  • How U.S. politicians helped create the Soviet Union
  • How blundering U.S. politicians enabled the rise of Nazi Germany
  • How U.S. intervention in WW1 fostered the rise of radical Islam

Now comes the most important and controversial article in the series… 

Was World War 2 a “good war?”

*** end quote ***

It’s takes a Gooferment to kill a lot of people.

Compare the USA to Switzerland and you see the difference between peace and war.

Death and destruction all over the globe.

Let’s bring all the girls and boys home now! 

“We”, as humans, have already paid to high a price.

GOVERNACIDE: SEVENTY people would have died by following the FDA’s diktats

Right to Try Act: Doctor Saves Lives by Ignoring FDA Restrictions
Tenth Amendment Center

*** begin quote ***

When the FDA told a Texas Doctor to stop treating terminal patients, he continued under the Right To Try Act. Instead of death they now have hope for life.

*** end quote ***

This is why the FDA MUST be made an “advisory only” function.

More than SEVENTY people would have died by following the FDA’s diktats. For something that’s been in use in Europe for 15 years?

That’s murder by Gooferment!

Argh!

I am a proud supporter of the Tenth Amendment Center

WASHINGTON – The Internet, which fills our inboxes with spam and scams every day and keeps our delete keys shiny, occasionally delivers a real keeper, such as the words below, which were written by a graduate of West Point, Class of 2003, who’s now at war in Iraq. 

We tracked down the author, who gave us permission to quote from his letter so long as we didn’t reveal his name. 

Old soldiers in the Civil War coined a phrase for green troops who survived their first taste of battle: “He has seen the elephant.” This Army lieutenant sums up the combat experience better than many a grizzled veteran: 

“Well, I’m here in Iraq, and I’ve seen it, and done it. I’ve seen everything you’ve ever seen in a war movie. I’ve seen cowardice; I’ve seen heroism; I’ve seen fear; and I’ve seen relief. I’ve seen blood and brains all over the back of a vehicle, and I’ve seen men bleed to death surrounded by their comrades. I’ve seen people throw up when it’s all over, and I’ve seen the same shell-shocked look in 35-year-old experienced sergeants as in 19-year-old privates. … … … …

*** end quote ***

Let’s bring all the girls, boys, women, and men home now! We have so many politicians and bureaucrats to send in their place if it’s really needed!

I’ve been lucky in not having to “see the elephant” first hand.

But, I have seen enough of the results to know that this is the LAST resort.

https://acaptainslog.blogspot.com/2008/07/fallen-soldier_04.html

I continue to insist that the “representatives” meet the returning H.R. and truly understand what their vote costs in terms of blood. The senator, congressman, other elected politicians, and appointed bureaucrats should meet “My soldier is on his way back to … …”!

WHO IS POURING TEA? WHO IS PRESIDING AT THE PUNCH BOWL?
Posted on November 7, 2016 by keywestlou

*** begin quote ***

I wrote a lengthy column about Jeanette Rankin three years ago in KONK Life. An interesting woman.

On this date in 1916, Rankin became the first woman elected to the U.S. House of Representatives. From Montana. Western women worked shoulder to shoulder with the men. They had a different respect than their eastern compatriots.

Rankin did not last long in office. One term. She was a pacifist. Voted against entry into World War I.

Some twenty years later, Rankin was again elected to the House. Again, only for one term. She was the sole vote against the U,.S. declaration of war against Japan following December 7, 1941.

Rankin needed police help to leave the House building following her vote. A crowd of angry persons had her confined in a telephone booth.

Enjoy your day! 

*** end quote ***

I didn’t know this before today. I did know that there was only vote against entry in WW2.

You have to respect someone with the courage of their convictions.

Perhaps she saw that the Lusitania was not what it seemed (i.e., it was carrying munitions), that “war” would turn dead Americans into big profits for the war industry (shades of Ike warning the USA of the military industrial complex), and that George Washington warned about becoming entangled.

Then in her next term, she saw that it was FDR’s plan to end the depression, again turn bodies into profits, and turn the USA into a global empire.

Special place in heaven for her.

Most libertarians value peace as a principle because it minimizes the State.

Special thanks for the wake up by Petrone, Louis S. “Key West Lou” (MC1957).

GOVERNACIDE: Fukushima a Gooferment disaster

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3897212/Fukushima-five-years-Inside-exclusion-zone-Japanese-nuclear-plant-deemed-uninhabitable.html

Fukushima frozen in time: How the uninhabitable exclusion zone remains untouched, five years after tsunami caused Japanese nuclear plant disaster 

  • The area around Fukushima’s reactor was evacuated in April 2011 and is still cordoned off to the public 
  • It followed the 8.9 magnitude Tohoku earthquake which led to a tsunami which partly flooded the plant
  • This led to the failure of several coolant water pumps, which prevented the reactor from overheating 
  • In February three Tokyo Electric Power Company executives were charged with professional negligence

Sorry, but the Gooferment approved all these disastrous decisions. And absolved the “company” from liability. So, as usual, the people absorb the burnt of the costs.

Who is the genius that made these decisions?
