Lynn R. Webster, MD – aka “Dr. Death” subject of investigative TV program

Lynn Webster MD

Lynn Webster MD

One of the quotes in the Aljazeera America TV piece delivered by Webster to a now deceased patient’s family was “A chronic pain sufferer could not become an addict.”

(MYRTLE BEACH)   On Monday, August 31 at 10 pm ET and 7 pm PT Aljazeera America Television will be broadcasting a program entitled “Fault Lines – How a Utah Woman Got Hooked on Painkillers.”  Here is a link to a preview of that show – http://america.aljazeera.com/watch/shows/fault-lines/2015/8/how-did-a-utah-woman-get-hooked-on-painkillers.html

The program focuses on a woman who was a patient of Lynn R. Webster, MD, head of Life Tree Pain Clinic in Salt Lake City, Utah.  Dr. Webster’s pain clinic had been raided by the D.E.A. in 2010 because of high numbers of deaths while patients were under his treatment.  During an interview, Webster had said “I do not know precisely how many former clinic patients died of an opioid overdose. At most it could be 20.  Many of those probably were suicides. I don’t think any of the deaths were for scripts I wrote. They were from staff.”  (In some states, including Utah, nurse practitioners and physician assistants can write prescriptions if they are supervised by a physician — and the prescription is signed by a physician.  Was this called throwing your staff under the bus, Dr. Webster?)

The Psychology of Projection in Conflict

I have chosen and quoted words to illustrate my discussion about the significance of projection and the importance of unconscious emotional content in any conflict.

(TASMANIA)    Understanding human conflict requires us to understand human psychology. And it is only when we understand the psychology that drives conflict that we can take intelligent steps to address it.

Even when I point out physical and mathematical impossibilities associated with their gravity, heat and particle explanations of anomalies discovered by the space probes, the scientists have simply stated that it is simply an anomaly that has to be resolved instead of considering the fact that their basic paradigm is wrong.

(SAN DIEGO)  As an inventor with 4 approved patents on mechanical, electronic and energy devices with another patent pending, I am familiar with and used small models to determine the capability and potential of a much larger model. From a reverse perspective it is equally possible to determine how an already known very large phenomenon can be produced by a very small model. For the scientists sitting at their desks burdened with mathematical formulas limiting their grasp of reality, I think it is important for them to look around them at the marvels that have been created simply by forcing a magnetic field current a fraction of an inch back and forth in a wire at 60 cycles per second.  There aren’t any particles filling up the light bulbs or piling up around all of the appliances they are using. Electrical energy does not flow from the end of a wire like water from a faucet. Everything must be connected back to the generator to complete a circuit to continue the fraction of an inch back and forth loop of occilation or the electrical energy will not work. The ground of the Earth serves as the connecting link back to the generator of the utility company.

Letter to Jeb Bush: torture is never justifiable

Remember what went on at Abu Ghraib, at the Guantánamo Bay detention camp and our extraordinary rendition program (secret abductions and transfers of prisoners to other countries where torture was used)?

(SAN FRANCISCO)   Mr. Bush — or Jeb if you don’t mind — I was greatly disturbed to hear that if you became president you won’t rule out the resumption of the use of torture arguing that brutal questioning methods might be justifiable and necessary in some circumstances.  Jeb, torture is never justifiable.

President Obama banned CIA torture by executive order in January 2009.  I urge you to reconsider your statement concerning torture and agree to leave President Obama’s executive order in place.  I don’t want a president who would use torture.

The threats and costs of war

Operation Enduring FreedomeThe direct and indirect costs of war

By John Scales Avery

(JUST)  The costs of war, both direct and indirect, are so enormous that they are almost beyond comprehension. Globally, the institution of war interferes seriously with the use of tax money for constructive and peaceful purposes.

Today, despite the end of the Cold War, the world spends roughly 1.7 trillion (i.e. 1.7 million million) US dollars each year on armaments. This colossal flood of money could have been used instead for education, famine relief, development of infrastructure, or on urgently needed public health measures.

(MYRTLE BEACH)   In the past few days, I have written two articles for Global News Centre regarding the FDA approving the dangerous opioid, OxyContin for children.  The FDA gave the green light on the use of OxyContin on children based on studies conducted by Purdue Pharma — maker of OxyContin.  Here are the links to those articles http://www.globalnewscentre.com/fda-has-purdue-pharma-conduct-its-own-studies-on-children-being-prescribed-oxycontin/#sthash.a1Ny7sN9.yJr4BYZr.dpbs

If you have ever wondered if the FDA is corrupt, this should leave you thinking long and hard — are they?

(MYRTLE BEACH)   I recently wrote an article for Global News Centre regarding the FDA’s approval of Purdue Pharma’s blockbuster drug, OxyContin for children in pain.  Here is the link to that article http://www.globalnewscentre.com/#sthash.TRmZJbFX.dpbs<

The FDA approved OxyContin for use in children to manage their chronic and extreme pain.  If you are wondering what could the FDA possibly have been thinking in approving a drug for children that has been responsible for tens of thousands of deaths and addictions throughout the U.S since its release in the late 1990’s, there was no thought.  Don’t even try to imagine how the FDA could have conducted studies with their research people and physicians under the watchful eyes of the heads of  the agency because they did not.  Did their advisory committee — the last step in approving a dangerous drug determine children could “safely” take OxyContin?  After all the FDA has come under close scrutiny for their financial ties to the pharmaceutical industry and certainly did not need anymore blood on their hands — especially with the risk of children becoming addicted and dying from OxyContin.   No there was no advisory committee review.
