Big Pharma Exposed for Knowingly Causing Opioid Epidemic, Ushering in a Heroin Nightmare

oxycontin-addiction-big-pharm

By Claire Bernish

Big Pharma created the legal opiate addiction epidemic and its outgrowth, rampant heroin abuse, because pharmaceutical corporations’ own addiction to profit arguably trumps any concern it may have had for patients. Though the accusation may seem harsh, the evidence has never been more apparent thanks to an investigation by the Los Angeles Times — which presents a scathing condemnation of the company behind the notorious painkiller, OxyContin.

Two decades ago, Purdue Pharma began marketing OxyContin — a chemical cousin to heroin — with the claim its 12-hour “smooth and sustained” dosing would revolutionize the treatment of pain. However, the claim is not only problematic in that its duration is often hours less than promised — leading patients to experience symptoms of withdrawal — but Purdue knew that before the painkiller ever hit the market.

As the Times discovered, Purdue’s push to market OxyContin, one of the most abused pharmaceuticals in history, flatly and continually ignored all reports from sales reps, complaints from doctors, and independent research on the drug — all in the name of profit.

Indeed, profit Purdue has — the company has reaped some $31 billion in revenue over OxyContin’s troubled 20-year stranglehold on the painkiller market. And ignoring complaints and research contradictory to its extended-relief claim is key to Purdue’s continued success with the hundreds-of-dollars-per-bottle drug, since milder opiate painkillers may, indeed, offer similar if not more effective benefits.

Because Purdue pressures doctors and sales reps to maintain the 12-hour dosing strictures, doctors often increase the prescribed potency.

More than half of long-term OxyContin users are on doses that public health officials consider dangerously high, according to an analysis of nationwide prescription data conducted for theTimes.

In examining the Times’ report, it becomes apparent Purdue has placed striving for profit above any iota of concern for suffering patients, the cycle of abuse and addiction, or the burgeoning health crisis due to opioid medication. But it isn’t OxyContin, in itself, driving the crisis — it’s the company’s insistence on the strictures of 12-hour dosing cycles, since the drug’s effects wear off much sooner for many.

Could There Be Party Pills in Your Chicken?

Story at-a-glance

  • Consumer groups filed suit against Sanderson Farms after the U.S. Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) scrutinized 69 locations and found 82 “unconfirmed residues”
  • FSIS inspections and testing discovered the recreational drug ketamine, a hallucinogenic anesthetic, as well as antibiotics, pesticides and growth hormones in Sanderson Farm products
  • Several consumer groups filed the complaint against the $2.8 billion company for touting its products as “100 percent natural,” asking Sanderson to admit it violated false advertising laws and to pay for a corrective ad campaign

If you’ve never heard about ketamine, you’re not alone. Scores of people had never heard the word until Bloomberg broke the story June 22, 2017, revealing that ketamine had shown up in Sanderson Farms’ so-called “100 percent natural” chicken, arguably the most popular meat in America.

Some who’ve heard of ketamine may include veterinarians, psychiatrists and people in the club scene who like to walk on the edgy (read: sketchy) side, as ketamine is known for delivering hallucinogenic effects. Testing also revealed other, and some even worse substances, and consumer advocacy groups don’t intend to sit still for it. In fact, a new lawsuit has been initiated by consumer advocacy groups due to the company’s use of the word “natural” in its advertising. Bloomberg explains:

“The consumer groups contend that Sanderson Farms “doses its chickens” but don’t explain why. Ketamine might be used to sedate the animals during transport or before slaughter. The consumer groups want Sanderson to concede it violated false advertising laws and pay for a corrective ad campaign.”1

Some consumers may feel it’s not a big deal, what with all the other questionable ingredients in foods nowadays, but that’s where they’d be wrong. As Drug.com explains, ketamine (pronounced kee’-ta-meen) is an anesthesia that “works in the brain to inhibit painful sensations.”2 It’s prescribed by psychiatrists for depressed patients and by dentists as an anesthetic. A partial list of disturbing side effects include:

  • Drowsiness, light-headedness or headache for as long as 24 hours
  • Its effects are more pronounced and worse with alcohol or certain medications
  • Changes in behavior, mental state or mood, confusion and/or hallucinations, which “usually” go away within 24 hours
  • Use in pregnant or breast-feeding women, elderly patients or children under 16  is not advised as they may be more sensitive, which is considered unsafe
  • Nausea or vomiting, severe allergic reactions, difficulty breathing, chest tightness, swelling of your mouth, face, lips or tongue, frequent or painful urination, double vision, involuntary muscle movements and more

Is it too much to ask, when a company touts its food as natural, for consumers to expect it to be true? (Click to Article)

Doctors In NJ Get Wealthy Helping Big Pharma Ignite Opioid Crisis

Doctors In NJ Get Wealthy Helping Big Pharma Ignite Opioid Crisis

by Dawn Luger

We’ve all seen those who don’t understand just how addictive opioids are, blame the addict for his or her addiction. But now, new information is coming to light, and many doctors have raked in huge amounts of money by helping push these drugs on patients for Big Pharma while downplaying the addictive nature of the drug with intents to get more taking it.

The opioid crisis is the fault of Big Pharma and it was all done in the name of money. While many die on the streets, their friends and family assume it’s just a “cake walk” to quit, all while Congress protects lobbyists, so doctors can continue to prescribe the dangerous drugs that are making them wealthy.

The most powerful opioid ever mass-marketed was designed to ease cancer patients into death. The drug is fast acting, powerful enough to tame pain that other opioids can’t, and comes in a variety of easy delivery methods, including patches and lollipops. A dose the size of a grain of sand can kill you, and the effects of addiction are often immediate.Usage quickly becomes necessary, and withdrawal effects are slow and painful for the user.

Meet fentanyl. It’s heroin on steroids and it’s killing people in droves. None of that stopped Big Pharma and the doctors in bed with them from prescribing these drugs in terrifying quantities in the state of New Jersey. In New Jersey, you can get fentanyl after having your tonsils removed. But that isn’t all. Doctors who treat children’s colds and adult’s sore knees are prescribing it with alarming frequency,far more often than oncologists who seek to ease end-of-life cancer pain.

“Difficult Times Will Come”

But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good,treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; Avoid such men as these.

A few days ago I was on one of the many freeways in Los Angeles, specifically the dreaded and feared #101. A woman driving a van with a Bernie Sanders Sticker on it cut in front of me. I had to hit the brakes. I threw up my hands gesturing a “hey what gives.” Immediately without hesitation, the one finger salute was raised!
This is a microcosm of the world in which we live.
Every year on Black Friday shoppers claw and fight over a $20 toaster or some other trinket. People are left on the floor as the stampede of wild-eyed consumers rushes over them.
Older people have become pray to the “knock-out” game where some punk kid cold-cocks the unfortunate person seeing if they can knock him or her out with one punch.( Click to Article)
The question I have for Jesus is this. Why does He wait? How bad do things have to get before He’ll intervene? How long will the madness that surrounds us continue before He acts. Before He mounts His White Horse and defeats the enemy.

Studies: Hanford tunnels holding radioactive materials at risk of collapse

hanfordtunnelcollapse_1494784940559_9461783_ver1-0

Engineering studies made public Friday reveal serious structural problems with two tunnels at the Hanford Site where highly radioactive materials are stored.
The reports were prepared following the May 9 discovery of a collapsed section of the roof of one of the tunnels. The U.S. Department of Energy, the owner and operator at Hanford, said no workers were exposed to radiation in that incident, which prompted evacuations and lock-downs across the site.
The two studies released Friday evaluated the structural integrity of two tunnels located near the Hanford PUREX plant — a decommissioned facility where plutonium was processed when Hanford was an active part of the U.S. nuclear weapons program. Both tunnels were built more than 50 years ago and currently hold abandoned railroad cars and equipment that is heavily radioactive.
The reports, ordered by the Washington State Dept. of Ecology through an Administrative Order and carried out by the U.S. Dept. of Energy, found the tunnel that failed on May 9 (Tunnel #1) is an “extreme collapse hazard” and that Tunnel #2 is a “high potential collapse hazard.”
Report authors warn that Hanford workers and equipment should stay clear of the tunnel areas to “avoid potential collapse, avoid exposure to high levels of radiation.”
KING 5 reported in May that concerns about the tunnels’ condition had been voiced for decades by scientists and engineers working at Hanford. The two new reports declare that both tunnels are at risk of collapse and “do not meet current structural codes and standards.”
The Department of Energy said it is working with its contractors on a plan for stabilizing the two tunnels and will present those plans to the Washington State Department of Ecology, which plays an important oversight role at Hanford.

Swarm of 73 earthquakes hits Chateau d’Oex in Switzerland as CERN breaks new particule collision records

I don’t know if there is a link between the activity @ CERN and the earthquake swarm that is currently hitting Château d’Oex…

But it is strange, really strange!

earthquake-chateau-doex-july-2017

More than one hundred earthquakes are shaking Switzerland since the CERN ramp up over last 48 hours. Only today, about 73 earthquakes shook Château d’Oex, with a M4.2 quake that was felt over a large part of Switzerland.

Following the M4.2 earthquake, some people reported noises and booms after the shaking that lasted between 2 and 10 seconds depending on the location.

On June 28, 2017, the CERN broke a new luminosity record for the LHC, in other words, the number of potential collisions per second and per unit of area.

Did this enhanced activity at CERN trigger this quake swarm? (Click to Article)

Alberta Christian school exiled after bible feud

.

1 Corinthians 6:9-11

Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men 10 nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

An Alberta school board has cut ties with a Christian academy after a feud over bible verses.

Cornerstone Christian Academy in Kingman lashed out at Camrose-based Battle River School Division earlier this month, after trustees asked them to remove two controversial bible verses from a draft of the academy’s student handbook.

On Thursday, the school division penned a letter saying it will longer operate the K-12 school after June 30, 2018, ending a nine-year partnership.

“We are deeply saddened by the BRSD’s decision to terminate our agreement,” academy chair Deanna Margel said in a press release.

“It seems unwise, and completely unnecessary, to throw away years of productive co-operation in mere weeks because we’ve simply hit an unusual bump in the road.”

The controversial passages included 1 Corinthians 6:9-11, which reads, “Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.”

Trustees with the school division argued that the verses might contravene Alberta’s human rights legislation.

The academy agreed to remove the two verses, but went public with concerns that the board would censor what parts of the bible its teachers could read in class. (Click to Article)

Growing Plague Of Witchcraft And Satanism Here To Resist THE TRUMP PROPHECIES, Repudiate Messiah, Final Redemption

Satanism Making Comeback Through Witchcraft and Atheism: Rabbi

donald-trump-news

“For these nations, that thou art to dispossess, hearken unto soothsayers, and unto diviners; but as for thee, Hashem thy God hath not suffered thee so to do.” Deuteronomy 18:14 (The Israel Bible™)

At the stroke of midnight on Wednesday, some 13,000 people will connect via internet in yet another attempt to cast a curse on President Donald Trump, this time on the summer solstice. Though spell-casting may seem too absurd to be taken seriously, a rabbinic authority maintains that the ‘witches’ are tapping into Satanism, a disturbing theology making a strong comeback today in the guise of atheism.

The witches are a motley collection with a mixed bag of rituals and beliefs, incorporating the arcane and the religious. The solstice curse calls for colored candles, Tarot cards, and chanting, but also allows for using Cheetos and religious amulets. As irreverent as this may seem, Rabbi Daniel Asore, who investigates the threat Satanism poses today as a member of the nascent Sanhedrin, believes the connection between witchcraft and politics is more relevant – and dangerous – than ever.

“Witchcraft, or its real name, Satanism, is explicitly a power struggle, which is why it is so readily dragged into politics. Satanism, in its essence, pits the adversary against God,” Rabbi Asore explained to Breaking Israel News. “Though this power struggle has been brewing all through history, today, when we are so close to Moshiach (Messiah), the role it is playing in politics could not be more clear.
