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…

(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.

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.

Target Stores mock parents who have lost children to the prescription opioid/heroin epidemic!

(MYRTLE BEACH)  Target Stores have been promoting a “Spritz Halloween Syringe Pen” for sale in their “family” stores all over the country.  (Photo of syringe pens are shown).  When I learned of Target’s outrageous retail practice of profiting from a drug epidemic which is resulting in deaths and addictions in the tens of thousands, I emailed the following to John Mulligan, Executive VP:

U.S. Senate Committee on Finance investigation silent on prescription opioid epidemic. Why?

Do we continue to lose a generation of our young people because pharma and their billions of dollars funds the campaigns of our elected officials?

Marianne Skolek Global News Centre

(MYRTLE BEACH)   In 2012 the U.S. Senate Committee on Finance launched an investigation into the prescription opioid epidemic and the pharmaceutical industry financial ties that have fueled this out of control holocaust.  Below are a few of the articles I have written for Global News Centre and Salem-News.com regarding the Committee’s indifference to the deaths and addictions now leading to an upsurge in heroin deaths.  A letter which is attached to this article from various organizations calls for action by the Finance Committee.  Hopefully, the letter will accomplish something to shake up this stalled investigation.  It’s a crime that we continue to lose a generation of young people to prescription opioids/heroin in record numbers.  I ask again — where has the outrage been that three years has lapsed and no one has been beating the doors of the U.S. Senate for accountability?

Where is the Outrage? FDA approves OxyContin for children and I warned you in 2009 and 2011!

oxy-kidsHave you seen the statistics in Florida of the deaths and addictions to controlled substances? 

Marianne Skolek Global News Centre

(MYRTLE BEACH)   In April 2011, I wrote an article for Salem-News.com (shown below in its entirety with comments from contributors to OxyContin being prescribed to children as guinea pigs).  Today, the FDA announced that Purdue Pharma, maker of OxyContin has been given the green light to prescribe the killer drug to children.  The news has caused a frenzy of outrage from organizations and individuals fighting the prescription opioid epidemic in the U.S. and Canada.  So how did this happen and what will the result of this FDA approval be in an out of control prescription opioid/heroin epidemic? Where is your outrage and what will you do about it?

(MYRTLE BEACH)   There is an organization of ordinary citizens operating out of Florida called StoppNow.  Here is a link to their website http://stoppnow.com/?page_id=252.  These ordinary citizens recognize that pill mills operating out of storefront buildings are warehouses of prescription opioids who are dispensing pills to hopelessly addicted people lined up outside the storefront pill mills.  So StoppNow organizes picket lines in front of the pill mills calling attention to law enforcement and the D.E.A. that people are dying and families torn apart because of these pill mills.  Ordinary citizens saving lives — heroes in every sense of the word.

Time for Barry Bonds to come clean

Barry Bonds: home run king and steroid user

Barry Bonds: home run king and steroid user

Bonds stated before winning his appeal, he is a felon.  He then went on to gloat that he was “never convicted of steroids,” but did not deny using them

Ralph E. Stone Global News Centre

(SAN FRANCISCO)  Barry Bonds — baseball’s home run king and steroid user — had his conviction overturned by the appeals court, who ruled that his evasive answer as to whether Greg Anderson of BALCO gave him performance-enhancing drugs was not perjury.  (The prosecutors are considering an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.)  Before the San Francisco Giants even consider bringing Bonds back in any capacity, I would expect them to require Bonds to confess to knowingly using steroids.  Remember, Mark McQuire and Alex Rodriguez confessed to using steroids.  

Operation Jade Helm 15: Prelude to martial law and false flag attack? the unedited version

Marine veteran investigative journalist and author trashed for accurate reporting and disagreeing with the Veterans Today editorial staff on Jade Helm.

Tim King and Robert O’Dowd Global News Centre

(SALEM)  An unconventional warfare exercise in several states in the Southwest and Southeast off of military reservations with Special Operations troops this summer could be used to set up a scenario for martial law if the exercise goes live from a false flag attack like 911.

What does Veterans Today have in common with the pro-administration Washington Post?  Both publications are trying to conceal the potential ramifications of an Obama Administration move called “Operation Jade Helm 15,” which every American should be leery about – at minimum.  The job of media, alternative media in this case, is to put the information out.  Jade Helm 15 is as real as it gets and it is totally unprecedented.  Jade Helm is U.S. Army Special Operations Command (USASOC) unconventional warfare exercise to be conducted outside of military reservations in at least 11 states.

Why I won’t make the prescription opioid epidemic of death and addiction personal!

This is about justice for every family in the country dealing with the catastrophic loss of life to addiction and death deliberately accomplished in a successful effort for Purdue Pharma to make billions of dollars. 

Marianne Skolek Global News Centre

(MYRTLE BEACH)  On April 29, 2002 my daughter Jill was “killed” by OxyContin prescribed to her for back pain.  I use the word “killed” because the opioid had been marketed criminally by Purdue Pharma as less likely to be addictive or dangerous.  I went through the emotional roller coaster of grief after Jill’s death and even attended some bereaved parent support group meetings.  After each meeting, I drove home in tears.  It felt as though a Band-Aid was being ripped off my heart each time and I only attended three meetings.  I grieved with friends who were there for me to talk and I found my car to be a place of refuge where I could cry as I drove.

What People Need to Know About the Latest Mass Murder. (Especially reporters and their editors)

Gary G. Kohls, MD for Global News Centre

(DULUTH)  “Even at normal doses, taking psychiatric drugs can produce suicidal thinking, violent behavior,  aggressiveness,  extreme anger,  hostility, irritability, loss of ability to control impulses, rage reactions, hallucinations, mania, acute psychotic episodes, akathisia, and bizarre, grandiose, highly elaborated destructive plans, including mass murder.

“Withdrawal from psychiatric drugs can cause agitation, severe depression, hallucinations, aggressiveness, hypomania, akathisia, fear, terror, panic, fear of insanity, failing self-confidence, restlessness, irritability, aggression, an urge to destroy and, in the worst cases, an urge to kill.” -  From Preventive Psychiatry E-Newsletter # 296: “Drug Studies Connecting Psychotropic Drugs with Acts of Violence” – unpublished.

Why Prescription Opioids/Heroin death and addiction still rages in U.S. and Canada

And are our veterans in V.A. hospitals going to be made guinea pigs by a wolf dressed as a physician in a white lab coat? You decide.

Marianne Skolek Global News Centre

(MYRTLE BEACH)  Anyone dealing with the death or addiction of a loved one to prescription opioids – some leading to heroin – have heard comments made leading to the stigma of addiction.  “If only your child had played sports in high school.  They wouldn’t have become addicted to prescription drugs.”  In many cases that child did play sports and had an injury which was treated by a physician with prescription opioids.  “If only your family member had been shown more love, they wouldn’t be battling addiction — or you wouldn’t be battling grief.”  All the love in the world and all the activity to be filled in a day does not guarantee addiction will not come through your front door.  Don’t beat yourself up.  Beat up those responsible for this epidemic — and those ignoring this epidemic.
