Caught you US Senator Orrin Hatch! Release the Opioid Report Now !

Orrin Hatch

Senator (R-UT) Orrin Hatch

 

Mr. Hatch — it’s called obstruction of justice and I will continue reporting on you until the US Senate Finance Committee investigation on prescription opioids is made public.

(MYRTLE BEACH) In the 15 years I have been reporting on the prescription opioid epidemic, it has in some ways been frustrating to be a forerunner in exposing the criminal activity of pharma, the FDA, politicians, physicians, pain foundations and organizations profiting from the surging death and addiction rates — while US Senator Orrin Hatch is allowed to obstruct justice.

Why Tom Marino won’t be confirmed as Drug Czar by the U.S. Senate

Marino’s support of Trump in 2016 presidential election may have played into his appointment by the President as Drug Czar

(MYRTLE BEACH) President Trump announced that he was nominating Rep. Tom Marino (R) of Pennsylvania to head the Office of National Drug Control Policy for the second time. Marino had cited personal reasons for turning down the prestigious position several months ago. His personal reasons “resolved” themselves and Marino was appointed for a second time by Trump. That appointment is now in the U.S. Senate for confirmation.

Purdue Pharma has another “killer” surprise for America — addicting 7 to 16 year olds!

butransThere is little outrage from the public in Purdue Pharma targeting children as young as 7 years old with yet another Holocaust of death in an FDA approved opioid.

(MYRTLE BEACH)  On September 14, the FDA Advisory Committee will be holding a hearing on Purdue Pharma’s new “blockbuster” opioid called Butrans.  It is targeted for severe pain in children ages 7 to 16 years old.  There is not a doubt in my mind that once the FDA approves this latest killer opioid presented by Purdue Pharma, it will be off-labeled marketed as OxyContin was for all pain levels.  This time though children are the guinea pigs and Purdue Pharma and its owners, the Sacklers will in all probability double their profits.

President Trump nominating Rep. Tom Marino, PA (again) for “drug czar” is a disservice to America!

Hopefully Mr. Trump will not allow the “alligator” with financial ties to the pharmaceutical industry to become “drug czar” while Marino thumbs his nose at the DEA and the families suffering the loss of loved ones to an out of control prescription opioid/heroin epidemic.

(MYRTLE BEACH)  President Donald Trump announced that he intends to nominate Rep. Tom Marino (R) of Pennsylvania to head the Office of National Drug Control Policy — second time for nomination.  Marino has been a longtime supporter of the president — so much so that Trump nominated Marino back in the spring for the same position — drug czar.  Marino withdrew his name in May because of “family issues.”

The “Dumbing Down” of America in the Prescription Opioid Epidemic!

dumbWhy “International Overdose Awareness Day” is dangerous and a deflection on attacking the epidemic from the root of the crisis — at the top!  The top is the FDA and the flooding of our country with dangerous prescription opioids!

(MYRTLE BEACH) Social media is alive with the promotion of “International Overdose Awareness Day” on August 31 and a march in Washington, DC as well as events taking place throughout the U.S. and Canada.

FLASHBACK: Is Senator Joe Manchin of WV a “hero” or a “hypocrite” in the prescription opioid epidemic?

Previously published articles by Marianne Skolek Perez regarding the prescription opioid epidemic and why it has raged out of control.  An article will be published “weekly” in an effort to educate people as to why the deaths to this epidemic continue in record numbers.  The weekly series will be entitled “Wake Up America – Why we are losing more lives in the prescription opioid epidemic!”

Manchin’s state, West Virginia, has the highest rate of overdose deaths in the country

(MYRTLE BEACH) Last week I received an email from a mother who lost her child to the prescription opioid/heroin health crisis crippling every state in the country.  The email read “I hope to get an appointment to see Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia when I visit Washington, DC — I think he gets it.”  But does Manchin “get it” in the sense this mother thinks?

Surgeon General Vivek Murthy was not “facing addiction” in his bogus report!

Photo ops with a Surgeon General exposed for a bogus report will do nothing to slow down the deaths to prescription opioid “addiction” — and yes that is the disease killing your kids.

Marianne Skolek-Perez Global News Centre

(MYRTLE BEACH) Recently President Trump relieved the Surgeon General of his prestigious position within the administration.  Many supporters of Dr. Murthy were unhappy with Trump’s decision.  After all a report had been issued entitled “Facing Addiction in America – The Surgeon General’s Report on Alcohol, Drugs, and Health”.  Considering that the Obama administration all but ignored the massive prescription opioid epidemic in the country, Murthy actually issuing a report was monumental.  So too was the length of the report — approximately 500 pages.

U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri and her sordid investigation!

 

Senators Claire McCaskill and Orrin Hatch

Orrin Hatch is working for the wrong side…

Marianne Skolek-Perez Global News Centre

(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.

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.”

Marianne Skolek-Perez Global News Centre

(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.

(SALEM)  January 16th marks the 75th anniversary of the night Hollywood actress Carole Lombard lost her life in a mysterious, tragic plane crash southwest of Las Vegas, Nevada. A Transcontinental Western Airlines (TWA) Douglas DC-3 slammed into a mountain about 35 miles from Vegas, taking with it, Lombard, her mother, press agent and passengers including 15 US servicemen. Nobody ever figured out what happened.

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.”

Marianne Skolek-Perez Global News Centre

(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.
