(MYRTLE BEACH)   Someone may want to inform Senator Claire McCaskill that her recent call for an investigation into the prescription opioid epidemic was already launched by the U.S. Finance Committee in 2012 and as of 2017 there is still no report.  So why would McCaskill demand action on an epidemic killing in the thousands every year when she is aware the waters are not unchartered?  Let me try to enlighten those people, including McCaskill, why not everyone is buying what she is selling.

Trump versus the media

unnaedUnfortunately, the mistrust of science and critical thinking in this country is a growing problem.  Trump like a snake oil salesman knows this and panders to this mistrust.  If we are not careful, we will listen to what Trump says and forget to watch what he does.

(SAN FRANCISCO)  Low Energy Jeb [Bush], Little Marco [Rubio], Lyin’ Ted [Cruz] pathological Ben [Carson], and Crooked Hillary [Clinton] were all quite effective labels used by Donald Trump on his march to the White House. With the destruction of 16 primary challengers and a well-known political figure in his rear-view mirror, Trump has now zeroed in on his old opponent, the media. Why?  Because the media is out to get him.  Or maybe they are just fact checking.

Is the U.S. Senate responsible for thousands of deaths in sealing their fact finding report on drug epidemic?

How many lives could have been saved — especially our young people if in 2007 Patrick Leahy had replied to me “We are taking this epidemic seriously and are launching an investigation to stem the loss of life to addiction and death.”

(MYRTLE BEACH)  On May 9, 2012 the U.S. Senate Finance Committee announced an investigation into the prescription opioid epidemic waging a war of addiction and death throughout the U.S.  Their investigation was to be focused on the American Pain Foundation (they closed their doors when the investigation was announced), the Center for Practical Bioethics, and five other organizations. It also targeted three leading opioid makers: Purdue Pharma (OxyContin), Endo Pharmaceuticals (Percocet), and Johnson & Johnson (Duragesic). The Senate Finance Committee demanded to see documents and get answers to their questions.

Two-State Solution Delusion

Total U.S. aid to Israel is approximately one-third of the American foreign-aid budget, even though Israel comprises just .001% of the world’s population and already has one of the world’s higher per capita incomes.

(SAN FRANCISCO)  A fantasy persists of a Israeli-Palestine peace agreement leading to an independent Palestine state in the land Israel has occupied since the 1967 Mideast War.  It must be clear by now to anyone paying attention that Israel has no intention of engaging in meaningful peace negotiations that would result in an independent Palestinian state.  Rather, Israel is slowly squeezing the Palestinians where the ultimate goal is to take over the entire country by  erecting a wall or fence, which cuts deep into Palestinian territory, joining large Jewish settlement blocks to Israel, further confining the Palestinians to isolated enclaves.

Without prevention, outrage and leadership, the Prescription Opioid/Heroin Epidemic will worsen in 2017

It will not be a good year for many in 2017 — for others, it will be very lucrative and his name is George Soros as a benefactor to “hitched stars.”

(MYRTLE BEACH)  I recently wrote an article for Global News Centre and Salem-News.com that generated quite a flurry of concern and discussion — the evil reach of George Soros in his attempts to legalize drugs in the U.S. and also Partnership for a Drug Free Kids funded by the FDA and Purdue Pharma, maker of OxyContin.  Links to these articles are shown below.

(MYRTLE BEACH)  The New York Times once described Hungarian born multi-billionaire, George Soros as the single largest donor to use his philanthropy to change or deconstruct the moral values and attitudes particularly of the American people — and legalize illegal/recreational drugs.

Surgeon General Vivek Murthy, MD recently released an almost 500 page report on the prescription opioid/heroin epidemic.  The title of the report is “Facing Addiction in America – The Surgeon General’s Report on Alcohol, Drugs and Health.”  Find it interesting that the title would read “Facing Addiction?”  I did.

We are fighting a Tsunami of addiction and deaths throughout the country. Any politicians giving free reign for pill mills to flourish and tie the hands of the DEA need congressional resources to investigate their ability to profit financially.

(MYRTLE BEACH)   On October 19, 2014 I wrote an article for Global News Centre and Salem-News.com entitled “Congressman Tom Marino (PA) and Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn (TN) “prescribe” Walgreens be unaccountable for errors in loss of lives …. Why?” A link to both articles regarding a bill they sponsored HR 4709 is shown below.

(SALEM)  In 1999, I circulated a petition urging people to boycott Unocal for funding the Taliban, or Taleban, in an Afghanistan pipeline project.   At the time,  I was a staff Photojournalist/Reporter for KVVU FOX 5 in Las Vegas.  Many of us were keenly aware then, before 9/11 (Not that Taliban had even the slightest role in that event), that the Taliban were a scourge in Afghanistan, subjecting women to torment that was highly objectionable.  All women were forced to wear the burqa and they lived in great fear.

FDA fails to protect children from dangerous drugs

(MYRTLE BEACH)  On September 15 and 16, I attended an FDA meeting to discuss the appropriate development plans for establishing the safety and efficacy of prescription opioid analgesics for pediatric patients.  On September 15, the day was filled with physicians giving their “expert” opinions on neonatals and newborns being given opioids for pain — after all they feel the pain of “needle sticks”.  One expert said the discussion was like “elephants in a room”.  I describe it as “egos in a room” and there were many of them.

Opioids for Pediatric Patients – “How could you get it so wrong?”

(MYRTLE BEACH)   Last Thursday and Friday I attended an FDA meeting of the Anesthetic and Analgesic Drug Products Advisory Committee, the Drug Safety and Risk Management Advisory Committee and the Pediatric Advisory Committee. The purpose of the two day meetings was to discuss prescription opioid analgesics for pediatric patients. The FDA experts and their egos were in plentiful supply as they fell over each other condoning opioids for pediatric patients. Unfortunately the audience in the large auditorium was sparsely attended — no Partnership for a Drug Free Kids and no advocacy organizations.

Since the FDA has sat back and approved prescription opioids in record numbers (more than any other country in the world), we can anticipate children being used as pawns by the FDA as they are fed opioids by pharma

(MYRTLE BEACH)  >On August 31 (with 45 minutes) notice, I was asked to participate in a “stakeholders” teleconference with Douglas Throckmorton, M.D., Deputy Director for regulatory programs in FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) to discuss the “FDA’s strongest box warning on opioids”.  One of Dr. Throckmorton’s responsibilities at the FDA is ensuring that the benefits of approved drugs outweigh their known risks. >
