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.

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

(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.”

I have never punished my child Parenting for a Nonviolent World

Punishment undermines the very basis of parenting: maintaining a safe, clear, loving relationship between parent and child.

(MELBOURNE)  I have never punished my child. This is not because I have some kind of freaky perfect child. My 8 year old son is a normal child who engages with the world with a natural childlike intensity. This means he sometimes challenges boundaries by doing what he wants and upsetting others. At times I am very upset by his actions and I have been stretched beyond my own boundaries many times. This can be really tough.

(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:
