Rudy Giuliani succeeded in keeping Purdue Pharma out of prison resulting in thousands of deaths!

Purdue Pharma, maker of OxyContin, pleaded guilty in federal court in 2007 to criminal charges that they misled regulators, doctors and patients about the drug’s risk of addiction and its potential to be abused.  The disgraced privately held Purdue Pharma, owned by the billionaire Sackler family, brought in “big guns” to negotiate the monetary settlement and hired Rudy Giuliani to avoid prison time.  Judge James Jones presiding over the sentencing imposed community service hours at a drug rehabilitation center to the three CEO’s of Purdue Pharma.  They were Michael Friedman, President, Howard Udell, Chief Counsel (now deceased) and Paul Goldenheim, MD.  With Giuliani’s shrewd legal skills utilized, Purdue Pharma continued to make billions of dollars while their created prescription opioid epidemic raged out of control.

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!”

(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?

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

(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.

Democratic Party has its work cut out at the state level

It behooves the Democrats to concentrate some of their efforts toward electing democrats at the state and local level as that’s where many future candidates hone their skills for later runs for national office.

(SAN FRANCISCO)  The Democrats elected Tom Perez for the Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairmanship.  After winning the vote, Perez appointed Keith Ellison as the Deputy Chair.  Perez and Ellison each pledged to rebuild state and local parties, including in Republican-dominated states.  The Democrats have much work to do at the state and local level where laws are passed disfavoring Democrats.

Gorsuch’s confirmation will bring the Supreme Court back to four conservatives, not a majority of five.

(SAN FRANCISCO) The Senate should confirm Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court if he is found to be qualified.  I understand the Republicans refused to even consider Merrick Garland, Obama’s Supreme Court nominee, even though Obama had ten months left on his term at the time.  I also understand had Hillary Clinton become president, the Republicans indicated no nominee of hers would be confirmed either.
