HORRIFYING: Indivior Solutions Gave ADDICTIVE Opioid Drug As “Treatment” For Opioid Abuse Under FALSE CLAIM Of Drug Being A Non-Opioid Treatment For Addiction

Indivior Solutions today pleaded guilty to a one-count felony information and, together with its parent companies Indivior Inc. and Indivior plc, agreed to pay a total of $600 million to resolve criminal and civil liability associated with the marketing of the opioid-addiction-treatment drug Suboxone.  Together with a $1.4 billion resolution with Indivior’s former parent, Reckitt Benckiser Group PLC (RB Group), announced in 2019, and a plea agreement with Indivior plc’s former CEO, Shaun Thaxter, announced last month, the total resolution relating to the marketing of Suboxone is more than $2 billion — the largest-ever resolution in a case brought by the Department of Justice involving an opioid drug.

Suboxone is a drug product approved for use by recovering opioid addicts to avoid or reduce withdrawal symptoms while they undergo treatment for opioid-use disorder.  Suboxone contains buprenorphine, a powerful opioid.

“Combatting the opioid crisis is a Department of Justice priority,” said Principal Deputy Associate Attorney General Claire M. Murray.  “Today’s announced resolution and related actions hold accountable entities and individuals that unlawfully marketed opioid-addiction products.”

“The opioid crisis is a public health emergency.  Prevention and access to effective treatments for opioid addiction are critical to fighting this epidemic,” said Deputy Assistant Attorney General Michael D. Granston for the Justice Department’s Civil Division.  “When a drug manufacturer claims to be part of a solution for opioid addicts, we expect honesty and candor to government officials, as well as to the physicians and patients making important treatment decisions based on those representations.”

Resolution of the Criminal Investigation

Indivior Solutions pleaded guilty today to a one-count felony criminal information charging false statements relating to health care matters.  In connection with its guilty plea, Indivior Solutions admitted to making false statements to promote the film version of Suboxone (Suboxone Film) to the Massachusetts Medicaid program (MassHealth) relating to the safety of Suboxone Film around children.  The resolution includes a criminal fine, forfeiture, and restitution totaling $289 million.  On June 30, 2020, Indivior plc’s former CEO Shaun Thaxter pleaded guilty to a one-count misdemeanor information related to Indivior’s false and misleading representations to MassHealth.

In 2002, Indivior Inc. received approval to market Suboxone tablets for use in the treatment of opioid addiction and dependence.  At that time, Indivior Inc. was an RB Group subsidiary known as Reckitt Benckiser Pharmaceuticals Inc.  In December 2014, RB Group spun off Indivior Inc., and the two companies are no longer affiliated.  Thereafter, Indivior Inc. became a subsidiary of Indivior plc.  On April 9, 2019, a federal grand jury sitting in Abingdon, Virginia, indicted Indivior Inc. and Indivior plc for allegedly engaging in an illicit nationwide scheme to increase prescriptions of Suboxone.

In its guilty plea today, Indivior Solutions, which employed marketing and sales personnel for the Indivior group of companies, admitted to an aspect of the scheme alleged in the indictment.  Specifically, Indivior Solutions admitted that, in October 2012, it sought to convince MassHealth to expand Medicaid coverage of Suboxone Film in Massachusetts and sent MassHealth false data indicating that Suboxone Film had the lowest rate of accidental pediatric exposure (i.e., children taking medication by accident) of all buprenorphine drugs in Massachusetts, when in fact, it did not.  Indivior Solutions further admitted that sending the false and misleading information occurred in the context of marketing and promotional efforts directed at MassHealth, which were overseen by top executives.  MassHealth announced it would provide access to Suboxone Film for patients with children under the age of six shortly after Indivior provided the false and misleading information to agency officials.

“During the nationwide opioid epidemic, Indivior Solutions made false statements about Suboxone’s safety to increase its sales.  In doing so, Indivior Solutions misled government health care officials and is being held accountable today for its felonious conduct,” said First Assistant U.S. Attorney Daniel P. Bubar of the Western District of Virginia.  “This resolution is the culmination of years of work by prosecutors and agents and demonstrates that we will continue to work tirelessly to hold pharmaceutical manufacturers responsible for illegal conduct.”

In addition to its financial aspects, the agreement with Indivior Inc. includes novel provisions that:

  • Require Indivior Inc. to disband its Suboxone sales force and not reinstate it;
  • Require Indivior Inc.’s CEO to personally certify, under penalty of perjury, on an annual basis that during the prior year (a) Indivior was in compliance with the Food Drug and Cosmetic Act and did not commit health care fraud or (b) list all non-compliant activity and the steps taken by Indivior to remedy these acts;
  • Prohibit Indivior Inc. from using data obtained from surveys of health care providers for marketing, sales, and promotional purposes;
  • Require Indivior Inc. to remove health care providers from their promotional programs who are at a high risk of inappropriate prescribing; and
  • Make Indivior subject to contempt sanctions by the court and reinstatement of the dismissed charges if it violates the agreement.

“The opioid crisis has devastated families and communities across the Commonwealth and drug manufacturers must be held accountable for their role in creating and prolonging this crisis,” said Virginia Attorney General Mark R. Herring.  “I want to thank my Medicaid Fraud Control Unit for their work on this important case, as well as our local, state and federal partners for their continued collaboration.  My team and I will continue to do everything in our power to hold pharmaceutical companies accountable for their role in the opioid crisis and help to ensure justice for those families who have been effected by the opioid crisis.”

“Parties that contract with the government will be held to the letter of the contract,” said Kenneth Cleevely, Special Agent in Charge of the Eastern Field Office for the U.S. Postal Service Office of Inspector General.  “The U.S. Postal Service spends billions of dollars per year in workers compensation-related costs, most of which are legitimate.  However, when medical providers or companies choose to flout the rules and profit illegally, special agents with the USPS OIG will work with our law enforcement partners to hold them responsible.  To report fraud or other criminal activity involving the Postal Service, contact USPS OIG special agents at www.uspsoig.gov or 888-USPS-OIG.”

U.S. District Judge James P. Jones accepted the guilty plea but deferred acceptance of the plea agreement until after the preparation of a presentence report.  He scheduled sentencing for Oct. 20, 2020 at the U.S. Courthouse in Abingdon, Virginia.

The Civil Settlement

Under the civil settlement, Indivior Inc. and Indivior plc have agreed to pay a total of $300 million to resolve claims that the marketing of Suboxone caused false claims to be submitted to government health care programs.  The $300 million settlement amount includes approximately $209.3 million to the federal government and $90.7 million to states that opt to participate in the agreement.

The civil settlement resolves allegations by the United States that, from 2010 through 2015, Indivior companies knowingly (a) promoted the sale and use of Suboxone to physicians who were writing prescriptions that were not for a medically accepted indication and that lacked a legitimate medical purpose, were issued without any counseling or psychosocial support, were for uses that were unsafe, ineffective, and medically unnecessary, and were often diverted; (b) promoted the sale or use of Suboxone Film to physicians and state Medicaid agencies using false and misleading claims that Suboxone Film was less susceptible to diversion and abuse than other buprenorphine products and that Suboxone Film was less susceptible to accidental pediatric exposure than tablets; and (c) submitted a petition to the Food and Drug Administration on Sept. 25, 2012, claiming that Suboxone Tablet had been discontinued “due to safety concerns” about the tablet formulation of the drug and took other steps to delay the entry of generic competition for Suboxone to improperly control pricing of Suboxone, including pricing to federal healthcare programs.

“Prescription opioids are both addictive and dangerous when diverted for improper use or prescribed without accurate information about the risks that they pose,” said U.S. Attorney Craig Carpenito for the District of New Jersey.  “This resolution holds Indivior to account for placing profit above patient and community safety.”

The civil settlement resolves claims against Indivior in six lawsuits pending in federal court in the Western District of Virginia and the District of New Jersey under the qui tam, or whistleblower, provisions of the False Claims Act, which allow private citizens to bring civil actions on behalf of the United States and share in any recovery.  The False Claims Act also permits the government to intervene in such actions, as the government previously did in the three lawsuits pending in the Western District of Virginia.  The whistleblower share to be awarded in this case has not yet been determined.

“Opioid addiction and abuse is an immense public health crisis and taking steps to address it is one of the FDA’s highest priorities,” said FDA Commissioner Stephen M. Hahn, M.D.  “Medication-assisted treatments incorporating drugs like Indivior’s Suboxone, in combination with counseling and behavioral therapy, are an important tool in combating opioid use disorder but can quickly become part of the problem if not used responsibly.  When companies encourage the use of powerful drugs where not medically necessary and provide misleading information about relative product benefits, they can ultimately risk more misuse, abuse, diversion, and accidental exposure to opioid drugs as well as make treatment more difficult to obtain for those suffering from this crisis.  We will continue to work with the Department of Justice to investigate and hold accountable those who devise and participate in schemes to the detriment of the public health.”

Non-monetary Provisions of the Corporate Integrity Agreement

In addition to the criminal and civil resolutions, Indivior executed a five-year Corporate Integrity Agreement (CIA) with the Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General (HHS-OIG).  The CIA requires that Indivior implement numerous accountability and auditing provisions.  On an annual basis, top executives and the Board of Directors must certify about compliance, Indivior must conduct annual risk assessments and other monitoring, and an independent review organization will conduct multi-faceted audits.

“Addressing the opioid crisis is a top priority for OIG, and we will continue to work closely with the Department of Justice to hold corporations and individuals accountable when they use illegal tactics to promote and sell opioids,” said Gregory E. Demske, Chief Counsel to the Inspector General, HHS-OIG.  “Among other things, our CIA with Indivior imposes accountability on the Board and top executives, subjects the company to internal and external auditing, and ensures that the company will separate itself from its prior top leadership.”

“The opioid epidemic has ravaged this nation,” said Elton Malone, Assistant Inspector General for Investigations with the Office of Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.  “This resolution, along with our law enforcement partners’ work, should serve as a warning that large companies will face prosecution if they break the law.”

FTC Resolution

Under a separate agreement with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), Indivior has agreed to pay $10 million to resolve claims that it engaged in unfair methods of competition in violation of the Federal Trade Commission Act, 15 U.S.C. § 53(b).  The FTC filed a complaint in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Virginia alleging anticompetitive activities by Indivior designed to impede competition from generic equivalents of Suboxone.  As part of a consent decree, Indivior agreed that it would notify the FTC if it filed a Citizen Petition with the FDA in connection with a drug product, it would simultaneously disclose to both the FDA and the FTC all studies and data relevant to that Citizen Petition.  Indivior further agreed not to withdraw a drug from the market or otherwise disadvantage a drug after obtaining approval to market another drug containing the same active ingredient.

“As alleged in the FTC’s complaint, in the midst of the nation’s opioid crisis, a critical opioid-addiction treatment was about to become more affordable,” said Gail Levine, a Deputy Director of the FTC’s Bureau of Competition.  “But Indivior prevented that.  It kept its drug prices high by unlawfully impeding generic manufacturers from competing effectively.”

A Multilateral Effort

The criminal case against Indivior was prosecuted by Randy Ramseyer of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Virginia, Albert P. Mayer and Carol Wallack of the Department of Justice Civil Division’s Commercial Litigation Branch, Charles J. Biro and Matthew J. Lash of the Department of Justice Civil Division’s Consumer Protection Branch, Kristin L. Gray, Joseph S. Hall and Janine M. Myatt of the Virginia Medicaid Fraud Control Unit of the Office of the Virginia Attorney General, and Garth W. Huston of the Federal Trade Commission.  This matter was investigated by the Virginia Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit; FDA – Office of Criminal Investigation; United States Postal Service – Office of Inspector General; and Department of Health and Human Services – Office of Inspector General.

The civil settlement was handled by Edward Crooke of the Civil Division’s Commercial Litigation Branch, Sara Bugbee Winn of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Virginia, and Andrew A. Caffrey III of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of New Jersey.  Assistance was provided by representatives of the HHS Office of Counsel to the Inspector General; the HHS Office of the General Counsel, CMS Division; FDA’s Office of Chief Counsel; the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Virginia; the U.S. Department of Agriculture Office of the General Counsel; the National Association of Medicaid Fraud Control Units; the Defense Criminal Investigative Service; the Office of Personnel Management – Office of Inspector General; the Department of Veterans’ Affairs Office of Inspector General; the Department of Labor – Office of Inspector General; and TRICARE Program Integrity.

The joint effort advances the goals of the Department’s Prescription Interdiction & Litigation (PIL) Task Force to deploy all available criminal, civil, and regulatory tools to hold opioid manufacturers accountable for unlawful practices and to ensure that prescription opioid products are marketed truthfully.

Except to the extent admitted as part of the criminal resolution, the claims resolved by the civil settlement are allegations only.  There has been no determination of liability in the civil case. (Click to Source)

Quercetin Boosts Interferon Response to Viruses and COVID-19

Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola – June 01, 2020

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • COVID-19 interferes with a cell’s ability to protect itself; researchers find quercetin protects cellular response and boosts type 1 interferon
  • Type 1 interferon works by signaling infected cells to produce proteins to stop the virus from replicating in the cell
  • Quercetin is also a zinc ionophore, which helps more zinc function inside cells to lower the viral load and reduce the severity of viral infections
  • Recent data show hydroxychloroquine is not as effective as hoped, yet none of the studies involved the use of zinc. This is important as hydroxychloroquine is also a zinc ionophore
  • The side effects of hydroxychloroquine caused the FDA to warn against use outside the hospital. Quercetin and zinc present an alternative without dangerous side effects when used appropriately

As the number of people who have died from COVID-19 rises, more widespread testing reveals the infection may have moved farther and faster than was anticipated. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently released five planning scenarios1 “designed to help inform decisions by modelers and public health officials who utilize mathematical modeling.”

Each of the scenarios is based on numerical values and epidemiological characteristics of the viral infection, reflective of data gathered before April 29, 2020. The CDC is clear these are estimates and not predictions:2

  • There was no known pre-existing immunity before 2019 so all people in the U.S. were assumed to be susceptible
  • Between 20% and 50% of all people believed to be infected were asymptomatic; they were deemed likely to be infectious
  • The “best estimate” is 0.4% of people who show symptoms will die; for people over 65 it’s 1.3% and for those 49 and under it’s 0.05%

Although there was nearly immediate pushback,3 estimates from The Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine at the University of Oxford were similar.4 There were two numbers used to define the percentage of deaths. The case fatality rate was chosen to represent the number of deaths divided by the number of confirmed cases; it was limited by the number of people tested.

Based on the possibility that up to 50% of those infected were asymptomatic, this created an abnormally high percentage. The infection fatality rate was used to represent the number of deaths divided by the number of people infected with SARS-CoV-2. That number was far lower since it included all people who are infected and not just those whose status was confirmed with a test.

The Centre acknowledges that estimating fatality rates in the early stages of infection is subject to uncertainty. However, it’s important to note that the infection fatality rate in the 3,711 passengers on the Diamond Princess cruise ship — the ship quarantined in Yokohama for 27 days at the start of the pandemic5 — was 1.3%.6

Quercetin Boosts Cellular Response to Viruses

Even one death is too many. As I’ve written in the past, quercetin is a natural antihistamine and anti-inflammatory that lowers your risk for viral illnesses. In a recent paper, researchers identified one mechanism through which quercetin may work to control viral replication and promote health.7

Casein kinase II (CK2) is an enzyme with a diverse set of functions in the body. It is fundamental to controlling homeostasis at the cellular level. Yet, much of its functioning and mechanisms of action are still unknown.8 The enzyme is also involved in the survival and metastatic spread of cancer cells.

There is evidence that it down-regulates the ability a cell has to generate type 1 interferon when attacked by a virus. It does this by inhibiting retinoic acid-inducible gene I (RIG-I),9 which has protein sensors that signal genetic expression of type 1 interferon by identifying the replication of RNA viruses, such as SARS-CoV-2.

Researchers found that quercetin could inhibit the expression of CK2, which slowed the replication of RNA viruses in the lab and in mice.10 They pointed out that the effectiveness of supplemental quercetin may be hindered by the low solubility of the compound, which affects absorption.

By using “enzymatically modified isoquercitrin (EMIQ)” they discovered they could develop plasma levels 20 times higher than the same intake of unmodified quercetin. The authors concluded quercetin or EMIQ “should be included” in aiding the control of viral infections.

In research on the Ebola virus (EBOV) that triggered epidemics between 2013 and 2016, scientists found that the virus also suppressed type 1 interferon. They discovered that quercetin could suppress the effect on type 1 interferon and that it restored the body’s ability to protect itself:11

“Overall, quercetin is the first identified inhibitor of the EBOV VP24 anti-IFN function, representing a molecule interacting with a viral binding site that is very promising for further drug development aiming to block EBOV infection at the early steps.”

What Are Interferons?

Interferons (IFNs) are a subset of cytokines discovered in 1957.12 These cells are often the initial defense against viruses. There are two types and three forms of interferon. Within type 1 interferon, there are alpha and beta. Type II interferon has the gamma form.13

The different types are based on the function of the cytokine. Type I interferons help cells resist viruses. Type II aids in responding to infections and cancer growth. Initially, researchers hoped it could be used to treat diseases, including cancer. But it had serious side effects.

After further development, several forms were released to treat genital warts, multiple sclerosis and hepatitis B and C with varying results. The name “interferon” came from the ability of Type 1 to interfere with the virus’s ability to duplicate. A cell secretes interferons when a foreign substance, like a virus, is detected.

However, the interferon does not function by attacking the virus. Instead, it tells the infected cell and the cells that surround the infected cell to make proteins that stop viral replication. Quercetin functions to stop CK2 from interfering with the action of type 1 interferon so cells are signaled to stop viral replication.

Quercetin Works With Zinc to Stem Viral Replication

Quercetin also functions as a zinc ionophore. This is a substance that helps transport zinc through the cellular plasma membrane14 and raises the level of zinc inside the cells. It’s another mechanism through which quercetin may help lower the viral load and reduce the severity of viral infections.

Zinc has proven antiviral properties and can reduce the length of the average cold by 33%.15 Recently, scientists pointed out there were indications that maintaining normal zinc levels may help reduce the severity of COVID-19.16

In the lab, zinc has demonstrated the ability to inhibit replication of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which researchers believe is the underlying therapeutic effect in the use of hydroxychloroquine.

Zinc may also up-regulate interferon production and the antiviral activity of the protein. Experts think it may reduce the risk of a secondary bacterial infection, especially against Streptococcus pneumoniae. Interestingly, zinc deficiency is common in older adults and in those who are obese, have diabetes or atherosclerosis.

Likely not by coincidence, these are some of the same populations who have a higher risk of severe disease from SARS-CoV-2.17 The research team who looked at past studies on zinc suggest that it has a protective effect against COVID-19 by lowering inflammation, helping clear mucus, preventing ventilator-induced damage and supporting immunity.18

In addition to the impact quercetin has on the immune system, researchers have also found it helps to ameliorate obesity, Type 2 diabetes, circulatory dysfunction, chronic inflammation and seasonal allergies.19 It has also been found to help lower blood pressure in patients with Stage 1 high blood pressure.20

Researchers have found that quercetin can trigger tumor regression and it can activate the mitochondrial pathway of apoptosis.21 This is programmed cell death, without which cells can grow uninterrupted and develop into cancerous growths.

Hydroxychloroquine: Poor Outcome With Added Risk

Two recent trials with the antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine have yielded disappointing results. The first 75 patients at 16 Chinese treatment centers who were positive for COVID-19 were given hydroxychloroquine.22

The researchers found the primary endpoint of a reduction in the viral load, and secondary endpoints of improvement and reduction in clinical symptoms, were not significantly better than in the control group.

The group receiving hydroxychloroquine had a negative conversion of 85.4% compared to the control group of 81.3%. In addition, the group receiving hydroxychloroquine had a greater number of adverse events compared to the control group. The most common was diarrhea. The authors concluded:23

“The administration of HCQ did not result in a higher negative conversion rate but more alleviation of clinical symptoms than SOC [standard of care] alone in patients hospitalized with COVID-19 without receiving antiviral treatment, possibly through anti-inflammatory effects. Adverse events were significantly increased in HCQ recipients but no apparently increase of serious adverse events.”

In a second study published in the Lancet,24 researchers used a multinational registry of patients who were given hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine, with or without a macrolide antibiotic for treatment. This class of antibiotic includes azithromycin, which has been used in other study groups.

There were 671 hospitals over six continents that supplied data of patients who were hospitalized between December 20, 2019, and April 14, 2020. During the study period there were 96,032 patients who met the criteria; 14,888 were in the treatment group and 81,144 were in the control group.

After controlling for confounding factors, the mortality rates were compared, and the researchers were unable to find a benefit from the antimalarial drugs when they were used alone or with a macrolide. What they did find was that using the:25

“… drug regimens was associated with decreased in-hospital survival and an increased frequency of ventricular arrhythmias when used for treatment of COVID-19.”

A third observational study, published in The New England Journal of Medicine, found using hydroxychloroquine did not improve patient outcomes with COVID-19.26 In addition the FDA has cautioned against the use of hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine as an outpatient related to the dangerous heart arrhythmia side effects from the drugs.27

What is important to note in each of these studies is the absence of zinc in the intervention groups. We now know that chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine are zinc ionophores,28 which means the main ingredient required to prevent the viral infection may not have been given.

While it is difficult to make an assumption of the efficacy of treatment of COVID-19 with hydroxychloroquine, since zinc was not given in each of these studies, it is also important to consider the secondary side effects associated with the drug, namely ventricular arrhythmias.

Dose Recommendations for Zinc and Quercetin

During the COVID-19 pandemic and future infectious disease seasons, supplementing with quercetin and zinc may be a good idea for many. It can help boost your immune system’s innate ability to ward off infectious illness. As for dosage, here are some basic recommendations:

Quercetin — According to research from Appalachian State University in North Carolina, taking 500 mg to 1,000 mg of quercetin per day for 12 weeks results in “large but highly variable increases in plasma quercetin … unrelated to demographic or lifestyle factors.”29

Zinc (and copper) — When it comes to zinc, remember more is not better. In fact, it can backfire. When taking zinc, you also need to be mindful of maintaining a healthy zinc-to-copper ratio. Chris Masterjohn has a Ph.D. in nutritional sciences.30 He’s written about the relationship between zinc and copper, saying:31

“In one study, 300mg/day of zinc as two divided doses of 150 mg zinc sulfate decreased important markers of immune function, such as the ability of immune cells known as polymorphonuclear leukocytes to migrate toward and consume bacteria.

The most concerning effect in the context of COVID-19 is that it lowered the lymphocyte stimulation index 3-fold. This is a measure of the ability of T cells to increase their numbers in response to a perceived threat.

The reason this is so concerning in the context of COVID-19 is that poor outcomes are associated with low lymphocytes … the negative effect on lymphocyte proliferation found with 300 mg/day and the apparent safety in this regard of 150 mg/d suggests that the potential for hurting the immune system may begin somewhere between 150-300 mg/d.

It is quite possible that the harmful effect of 300 mg/d zinc on the lymphocyte stimulation index is mediated mostly or completely by induction of copper deficiency.

The negative effect of zinc on copper status has been shown with as little as 60 mg/d zinc. This intake lowers the activity of superoxide dismutase, an enzyme important to antioxidant defense and immune function that depends both on zinc and copper.

Notably, the maximum amount of zinc one could consume while staying in the acceptable range of zinc-to-copper ratios and also staying within the upper limit for copper is 150 mg/d.” (Click to Source)

China Orders Christians to Take Down Images of Jesus from Their Homes

By THOMAS D. WILLIAMS, PH.D. –
 

Chinese communist authorities have ordered poor Christian villagers to remove Christian images from their homes and replace them with portraits of Chairman Mao and President Xi Jinping or risk losing their welfare benefits.

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has continued its program of “Sinicization” of religion by channeling religious fervor in the country toward the Party rather than God, the Christian Post reported this weekend.

In May, an official in the eastern province of Shandong raided the home of a local Christian and hung pictures of Mao Zedong and Xi Jinping on the wall in place of Christian images.

“These are the greatest gods. If you want to worship somebody, they are the ones,” the official told them.

This year, China’s “social credit system” was scheduled to become fully functional, assigning points to each individual based on how much the Communist Party approves of them and using their rating to control their behavior and access to certain benefits..

“There are fears that China’s new ‘social credit system’ – designed to reward good citizenship and punish bad – will be used to discriminate against Christians,” wrote the Catholic charity organization Aid to the Church in Need in a 2019 report.

The fears are tied to “cash rewards for those who inform on underground churches and other ‘unofficial’ places of worship,” indicating that the government might also reward the persecution of Christians with high “social credit” scores.

According to the religious liberty magazine Bitter Winter, the CCP is now using state welfare benefits as leverage to coerce people into worshiping the Party rather than Jesus.

In April, for instance, party officials visited the homes of Christians in Linfen, in the northern province of Shanxi, ordering those who receive welfare payments from the government to remove crosses, Christian symbols, and images in their homes and replace them with portraits of China’s communist leaders.

The officials threatened the Christians that non-compliance with the order would result in suspension of their welfare subsidies.

“All impoverished households in the town were told to display Mao Zedong images,” a local house church preacher said. “The government is trying to eliminate our belief and wants to become God instead of Jesus.”

Officials have often made good on their threats, ruthlessly suspending benefits to Christians who fail to give up their devotions.

Communist authorities cancelled the government subsidies of one elderly Christian woman from Shangqiu city in Henan after they found an image of a cross posted on the door of her home.

“They tore it down immediately,” she said. “Afterward, both my minimum living allowance and poverty alleviation subsidy were canceled. I am being driven to a dead end. I have diabetes and need injections regularly.”

Something similar occurred in in Xinyu city in the southeastern province of Jiangxi, when officials canceled the minimum living subsidy and a monthly disability allowance of 100 RMB (about $14) to a disabled Christian who disobeyed government orders and continued to attend worship services.

Another Christian living in Jiangxi’s Poyang county — a woman in her 80s — reportedly stopped receiving government aid after she said “Thank God” after receiving her monthly 200 RMB (about $28) subsidy in mid-January.

“They expected me to praise the kindness of the Communist Party instead,” she said.

In another case, local officials entered the home of a member of a state-sponsored Three-Self church and tore down all Christian images, including a calendar with an image of Jesus, and posted a portrait of Mao Zedong instead.

“Impoverished religious households can’t receive money from the state for nothing — they must obey the Communist Party for the money they receive,” the official declared. (Click to Source)

BEVELYN BEATTY, CHRISTIAN WHO PAINTED OVER BLM MURAL, SAYS ‘TAKE YOUR COUNTRY BACK’

 

In the video below, you can see Bevelyn Beatty, the Co-Founder of ‘At the Well Ministries’, attempt to cover up the ‘Black Lives Matter’ mural painted in front of the Trump Tower in Manhattan. The mural has police stationed around it to protect it by order of NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio.

Bevelyn takes a can of paint from the back of her car, walks over to the mural and she dumps the can out. She then gets on the ground to spread the paint over the yellow lettering. A man in tan can be heard yelling expletives at her and then asks the police to stop her, which they did, although one slipped and took a pretty hard fall as shown in our previous coverage of this story here.

While she is covering the mural in black paint, she calls on people to take back their country, shouting ‘take it back’. She also can be heard saying ‘we are dying left and right, take it back… they want us to die and kill each other’.

She was arrested within minutes of covering the mural, and while she is being escorted to the police car she calls the man in tan who was screaming expletives at her a ‘coon’. She is taken away in a cop car and so is the other woman who helped cover the yellow letters in black paint.

The video continues and the woman filming who’s name is Susan talks to one of the NYPD Officers while they are waiting to get Beverlyn’s personal items and vehicle. He asks, “you guys part of a group?” she replies, “we’re Christians”.

The officer affirms he is also a Christian. Susan continues “we’re here to exhort our country to start taking it back. To stop with the nonsense, that all lives matter, blue lives matter. We don’t agree with defund the police, and we are here to be a voice, because the left has the loudest voice right now and we’ve had enough, we’ve had enough.”

Conservative commentator Mark Dice calls Bevelyn awesome for #OperationPaintDrop.

Rogan O’Handley tweeted one of the clips from today’s event with ‘The backlash has begun #RefundThePolice #SaveBlackLives.” See tweet:

Bevelyn has a history of being an activist. She was also at Seattle’s ‘CHOP’, talking to people about why she would not be voting for Joe Biden. “You wanna see a bunch of people go to jail in the next four years, put Joe Biden in watch what happens. You want to see black men get killed substantially like you’ve never seen before put Joe Biden in and watch what happens. These Democrats and I’m sorry to say this I’m not trying to be racist but they hate black people.” She has appeared on NewsMax as well.

In the opinion of Bevelyn and the group of Christians she is a part of, they are ready to ‘take back this country from the radical left, the loudest voice right now’. Twitter user @therealoutdude believes this is the start of a revolution. That tweet read:

“Wow Bevelyn Beatty just started a revolution on Facebook live! I can’t believe the @NYPD arrested her for expressing herself especially after what BLM has done to our communities and the Police, stand down like you did for the LEFT! #bevelynbeatty #jesusmatters” See tweet:  (Click to Source)

PICS | Hundreds of bikers protest against farm murders

Ashraf Hendricks – 19 Jul

 

  • Hundreds of bikers protested outside Parliament against farm murders. 
  • Protesters claimed they were “gatvol” and said they were being “ignored”. 
  • Some of their demands included protection from the state and assistance with security equipment and training.

Hundreds of bikers roared down Roeland Street in Cape Town on Saturday morning to protest against farm murders.

According to a GroundUp report, they gathered outside Parliament in leather jackets and long boots carrying placards saying: “Stop farm killings” and “No farms, no food.”

Some bikers performed “donuts” (spinning around on their bike wheels).

“The government is not doing anything about our farmers being murdered,” claimed Debbie Els of the Stop Farm Murder/Attacks Movement. She called the murders “terrorist attacks”. She said that the protest was taking place because they were “gatvol” and taking a stance.

Reading out a memorandum to the crowd, Els said: “Farm attacks and farm murders are blatantly being ignored.” She claimed that government was being “complicit”.

“Without farmers we are facing hunger,” she said. Els said that farms were soft targets for crime because of their remote locations and that farms needed to be protected and labelled a “national key point”.

State protection demanded

Some of the demands include protection from the state and assistance with security equipment and training.

“We need to ensure that we secure our breadbasket,” she said.

No one came to accept the memorandum.

AfriForum estimated that there were 57 farm murders in 2019. Last year, the group warned that the number of farm attacks in the Western Cape “increased extremely”.

Sihle Ngobese, who goes by the name of Big Daddy Liberty, called on all South Africans, regardless of race, to unite.

“In this country, it is the politicians who try and divide us,” he said.

Ngobese added that he was proud to see South Africans standing up for the farming community.

“I love our flag. I love our family and I call for freedom!” he said. “It is time for us to draw the line in the sand and say enough is enough.”

“People are killing the people that feed us,” said Vanessa Minnie. “We need to support our farmers and save their lives.” (Click to Source)

Egypt’s Parl’t Approves Permission to Deploy Troops to Carry Out Combat Missions Abroad, Reports Say

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Sisi said on 16 July at a meeting with Libyan sheikhs and elders that Egypt would quickly reverse the military situation in Libya if it sends troops to the North African country.

The Egyptian parliament has unanimously approved permission for a possible dispatch of the country’s troops to carry out combat missions abroad, state television reported.

During the session, the parliament discussed the results of a meeting of the Egyptian Security Council that was held on Sunday under the leadership of President Abdel Fattah Sisi, and threats to the state from the west, the broadcaster said.

The matters were discussed behind closed doors without the presence of the media.

According to the Egyptian constitution, the president of the country can declare war or send troops to carry out combat missions outside the country after obtaining the consent of the parliament.

The report comes after President Abdel Fattah Sisi said that Egypt “will quickly and decisively change the military situation“, in Libya, adding that the Egyptian Army is one of the strongest in the region and Africa.

Prior to this, Libya’s Tobruk-based House of Representatives, supported by the Libyan National Army (LNA), gave permission to the Egyptian Armed Forces to intervene in Libya if Cairo sees reasons for a pre-emptive strike against an imminent threat to the national security of the two countries.

Earlier in July, the Egyptian Armed Forces conducted an exercise near Libya’s border. The drills, codenamed Resolve 2020, took place in the north-western district of Qabr Gabis, some 37 miles from the Libyan border.

In June, Sisi met with the LNA’s commander, Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, and the eastern parliament’s speaker, Aguila Saleh. After the meeting, Sisi announced the so-called Cairo peace initiative, which includes a ceasefire throughout Libya and the terms of a political settlement. The initiative was backed by Russia, the United States, and several Arab states, but was rejected by Turkey and its ally, the Government of National Accord (GNA). (Click to Source))

Petition to Investigate Bill Gates for ‘Crimes Against Humanity’ Goes Viral

White House petition gathers a staggering 600,000 signatures

By: Jay Greenberg  |@NeonNettle
 on 18th July 2020 @ 6.00pm

 

A petition calling for billionaire Bill Gates to be investigated for “crimes against humanity” has gone viral on social media, gathering a staggering 600,000 signatures from concerned citizens.

The “We the People” petition, hosted on the official White House website, calls for “Investigations Into The ‘Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’ For Medical Malpractice & Crimes Against Humanity.”

So far, the campaign has amassed over 600k signatures, more than six times the 100,000 required to get an official response from Congress.

The petition asks the federal government to investigate the Microsoft co-founder and his wife Melinda Gates, stating that “Congress and all other governing bodies are derelict in duty until a thorough and public inquiry is complete.”

Since the beggining of the coronavirus pandemic, Gates has come under mounting scrutiny due to his involvement in virus tracking and the race for a COVID-19 vaccine.

Created on April 10, the petition reached the threshold of 100,000 signatures within days and is currently one of the most popular petitions on the site.

As the White House “We the People” website explains, the petition platform empowers every American citizen “to become an agent of change.”

If a petition gains 100,000 signatures in 30 days, the White House will “make sure it gets in front of the appropriate policy experts,” the site states:

We the People is a platform that empowers the American public to take this action like never before – it’s a way for anybody, anywhere, to speak directly to the government and become an agent for change.

“With We the People, you can easily create a petition online, share it, and collect signatures.

“If you gather 100,000 signature in 30 days, we’ll review your petition, make sure it gets in front of the appropriate policy experts, and issue an official response.”

The Bill Gates petition has soared way beyond its 100k goal and, at time of press, has around 602,000 signatures and still climbing, fast.

The “We the People” petition can be viewed and signed here.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr., the nephew of former President John F. Kennedy, has also sharply criticized Gates for what he describes as a “messianic conviction that he is ordained to save the world with technology.

“Vaccines, for Bill Gates, are a strategic philanthropy that feed his many vaccine-related businesses (including Microsoft’s ambition to control a global vac ID enterprise) and give him dictatorial control over global health policy—the spear tip of corporate neo-imperialism,” Kennedy Jr. wrote.

Gates’ obsession with vaccines seems fueled by a messianic conviction that he is ordained to save the world with technology and a god-like willingness to experiment with the lives of lesser humans.” (Click to Source)

Revelation 2

What is commanded to be written to the angels, that is, the ministers of the churches of Ephesus
1 “To the messenger of the assembly of Ephesos write, ‘He who is holding the seven stars in His right hand, who is walking in the midst of the seven golden lampstands, says this: 2 “I know your works, and your labour, and your endurance, and that you are not able to bear evil ones, and have tried those who say they are emissaries and are not, and have found them false; 3 and you have been bearing up and have endurance, and have laboured for My Name’s sake and have not become weary. 4 “But I hold this against you, that you have left your first love. 5 “So remember from where you have fallen, and repent and do the first works, or else I shall come to you speedily and remove your lampstand from its place, unless you repent. 6 “Yet this you have, that you hate the works of the Nikolaites, which I also hate. 7 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies. To him who overcomes (a) I shall give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise (b) of Elohim.” ’(c) Gen 2:9, Gen 3:22, Gen 3:24 Footnotes: a This word (and its noun) is used 17 times in the Book of Revelation. The name Yisra’ĕl means to overcome with Ěl. bLit. garden. c See Rev 22:2 and Rev 22:14.
Smyrna
8 “And to the messenger of the assembly in Smurna write, ‘This says the First and the Last, Isa 44:6, and Isa 48:12 who became dead, and came to life: 9 “I know your works, and pressure, and poverty – yet you are rich – and the blasphemy of those who say they are Yehuḏim and are not, but are a congregation of Satan. 10 “Do not be afraid of what you are about to suffer. See, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, in order to try you, and you shall have pressure ten days. Be trustworthy until death, and I shall give you the crown of life. 11 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies. He who overcomes shall by no means be harmed by the second death.” (’d) Footnote: d See Rev 20:6.
Pergamos
12 “And to the messenger of the assembly in Pergamos write, ‘He who has the sharp two-edged sword, says this: 13 “I know your works, and where you dwell, where the throne of Satan is. And you hold fast to My Name, and did not deny the belief in Me, even in the days in which Antipas was My trustworthy witness, who was killed near you, where Satan dwells. 14 “But I hold a few matters against you, because you have there those who adhere to the teaching of Bil‛am, who taught Balaq to put a stumbling-block before the children of Yisra’ĕl, to eat food offered to idols, and to commit whoring. 15 “So you also have those who adhere to the teaching of the Nikolaites, which teaching I hate. 16 “Repent, or else I shall come to you speedily and fight against them with the sword of My mouth. 17 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies. To him who overcomes I shall give some of the hidden manna to eat. And I shall give him a white stone, and on the stone a renewed Name written which no one knows except him who receives it.” ’
Thyatira, and what is commended or found wanting in them
18 “And to the messenger of the assembly in Thyatira write, ‘This says the Son of Elohim, who has eyes like a flame of fire, and His feet like burnished brass: Dan 10:5-6. 19 “I know your works, and love, and service, and belief, and your endurance. And as for your works, the last are more than the first. 20 “But I hold against you that you allow that woman Izeḇel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and lead My servants astray to commit whoring and to eat food offered to idols. 21 “And I gave her time to repent of her whoring, and she did not repent. 22 “See, I am throwing her into a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her into great affliction, unless they repent of their works. 23 “And I shall slay her children with death. And all the assemblies shall know that I am the One searching the kidneys and hearts. And I shall give to each one of you according to your works. 24 “And to you I say, and to the rest in Thyatira, as many as do not possess this teaching, and who have not known the depths of Satan, as they call them, I am not putting on you another burden. 25 “But hold fast what you have until I come. 26 “And he who overcomes, and guards My works until the end, to him I shall give authority over the nations, Psa 2:8. 27 and he shall shepherd them with a rod of iron, as the potter’s vessels shall be broken to pieces, Psa 2:9 as I also have received from My Father. 28 “And I shall give him the morning star. 29 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies.” ’

Revelation 3

The angel of the church of Sardis is reproved
1 “And to the messenger of the assembly in Sardis write, ‘He who has the seven Spirits of Elohim and the seven stars, says this, “I know your works, that you have a name that you are alive, but you are dead. 2 “Wake up, and strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have not found your works complete before Elohim.
exhorted to repent, and threatened if he do not repent
3 “Remember, then, how you have received, and heard. And watch and repent. If, then, you do not wake up, I shall come upon you as a thief, and you shall not know at all what hour I come upon you. 4 “Nevertheless, you have a few names in Sardis who have not defiled their garments. And they shall walk with Me in white, because they are worthy. 5 “He who overcomes shall be dressed in white robes, and I shall by no means blot out his name from the Book of Life, but I shall confess his name before My Father and before His messengers. 6 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies.” ’
7 “And to the messenger of the assembly in Philadelphia write, ‘He who is set-apart, He who is true, He who has the key of Dawiḏ, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens, Isa 22:22 says this:
The angel of the church of Philadelphia
8 “I know your works – see, I have set before you an open door, and no one is able to shut it – that you have little power, yet have guarded My Word, and have not denied My Name. 9 “See, I am giving up those of the congregation of Satan, who say they are Yehuḏim and are not, but lie. See, I am making them come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you.
is approved for his diligence and patience
10 “Because you have guarded My Word of endurance, I also shall guard you from the hour of trial which shall come upon all the world, to try those who dwell on the earth. 11 “See, I am coming speedily! Hold what you have that no one take your crown. 12 “He who overcomes, I shall make him a supporting post in the Dwelling Place of My Elohim, and he shall by no means go out. And I shall write on him the Name of My Elohim and the name of the city of My Elohim, the renewed Yerushalayim, which comes down out of the heaven from My Elohim, and My renewed Name. 13 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies.” ’
14 “And to the messenger of the assembly in Laodikeia write, ‘The Amĕn, the Trustworthy and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of Elohim,  (a) says this: Footnote: a Col 1:15, Heb 1:6.
the angel of Laodicea rebuked for being neither hot nor cold
15 “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I would that you were cold or hot. 16 “So, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I am going to vomit you out of My mouth. 17 “Because you say, ‘Rich I am, and I am made rich, Hos 12:8 and need none at all,’ and do not know that you are wretched, and pitiable, and poor, and blind, and naked. 18 “I advise you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, (b) so that you become rich; and white garments, so that you become dressed, so that the shame of your nakedness might not be shown; and anoint your eyes with ointment, so that you see. Footnote: b Psa 19:10, Psa 119:72 and Psa 119:127, Pro 30:5.
and admonished to be more zealous

Christ stands at the door and knocks
20 “See, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I shall come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. 21 “To him who overcomes I shall give to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. 22 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies.” ’ ”
