The FDA is a Rogue
FDA is A Rogue Criminal Agency
The day of the Smoking Gun has arrived.
The discovery of a page, on the
FDA’s own website, proves the FDA is
fully aware that:
the drugs it certifies as safe have been killing Americans, at the
rate of 100,000 per year.
The FDA website page is currently available under the heading, “Why
Learn About Adverse Drug Reactions,” and it can be Googled. (Click
here to go directly to the FDA page.)
The implications of this Smoking Gun are hard to grasp in any
The FDA takes no blame, no responsibility for its actions, and yet
it admits the death statistics are accurate.
As an investigative reporter, I have been tracking and writing about
pharmaceutically-caused deaths for 10 years. I have, on numerous
occasions, cited Dr. Barbara Starfield’s report in the July 26th,
2000, Journal of the American Medical Association, in which she
presents the figure of 106,000 deaths per year, in America, as a
result of these drugs.
I have claimed that the federal government
and, in particular, the FDA, are aware of these numbers.
And now the page on the FDA’s own website confirms the death toll.
Yet, nowhere do we see the FDA taking one shred of responsibility
for this ongoing holocaust.
Holocaust? Add up the figures. Medical drugs cause 100,000 deaths in
America every year: that means a million Americans are killed every
Understand this very clearly. No medical drug in America can be
released for public use until and unless the FDA states it is safe.
The FDA is the agency responsible for every such decision on every
drug. The buck stops there.
Yes, the FDA has a “special relationship” with the pharmaceutical
industry. Yes, the FDA utilizes doctors on their drug-approval
panels that have ties to the pharmaceutical industry. But, in the
end, it is the FDA official seal that opens the gate and permits a
drug to be prescribed by doctors and sold in the US.
In all my research on this medical-drug holocaust, I have never
found a case in which any FDA employee was censured, fired, or
criminally prosecuted for the killing effects of these drugs.
That is a track record Organized Crime would be proud of, and the
comparison is not frivolous.
On this FDA website page that has just come to light, the FDA also
readily admits that deaths from medical drugs are the fourth leading
cause of death in America, ahead of pulmonary disease, diabetes,
AIDS, pneumonia, accidents, and automobile fatalities.
The FDA website page also states there are 2 million serious adverse
reactions (ADRs) from the ingestion of medical drugs, annually, in
the US. When the FDA says “serious,” they aren’t talking about
headaches or slight dizziness or temporary nausea. “Serious” means
stroke, heart attack, neurological damage; destruction of that
magnitude. Therefore, per decade, that adds up to 20 million ADRs.
Examining these figures for death and debilitation, can you find any
comparable crime in the American landscape? And yet the major media
have been silent.
This is the kind of story that could make
Watergate look like a Sunday-school picnic.
If a paper like the New
York Times let loose their hounds in a relentless exploration of the
horror, I can assure you that, in time, doctors and medical
bureaucrats and even drug-company employees would come out of the
woodwork with confessions, and the resultant explosions and outcries
would shake the medical/pharmaceutical foundations of America and
But these major media outlets are an intrinsic part of the Matrix
that protects and sustains the crimes and the criminals. It isn’t
just drug-advertising profits that keep the leading newspapers and
television networks silent. It’s collusion to protect “a revered
institution” - the medical system.
Also at stake
The connection is vivid and
unmistakable. If the new national health insurance plan goes into
effect, millions more Americans, previously uninsured, will be drawn
into the system and subjected to the very drugs are killing and
maiming people at such a horrific rate.
Where has the US Department of Justice been all these years?
there any way, under the sun, that a million deaths per decade can
Is there any way the FDA and the drug companies can
float safely in the upper atmosphere of privilege, while the concept
of justice has any meaning?
Where are criminal prosecutions?
The revelations of ongoing knowledge to be found at the FDA website
page stagger the mind.
Here is yet another implication:
all the studies on drugs that are published in prestigious medical
journals, month after month? These studies unequivocally claim the
drugs are safe. What level of fraud must exist for such
peer-reviewed studies to attain the false status of medical fact?
Perhaps this quote from Marcia Angell, former editor of the New
England Journal of Medicine, will clarify that aspect of the
“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical
research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted
physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure
in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my
two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.”
(Marcia Angell, MD, The New York Review of Books, January 15, 2009)
Be forewarned. If this story of FDA-caused deaths finally, now,
breaks through into the public consciousness in a major way, the
official team for the defense will try to obfuscate the naked facts:
“A low-level FDA employee mistakenly posted those numbers, which are
“People die because the drugs are incorrectly combined,
because patients don’t follow prescribing instructions, because
sometimes doctors prescribe a drug for off-label uses, but the drugs
themselves are safe.”
“The FDA has a remarkable track record of
And so forth and so on. None of these defenses are dealing
with the truth head-on. They are all attempts to deflect and escape
Meanwhile, the FDA pursues an agenda of attacking nutritional
supplements, and the latest federal regulations classify these
supplements as “potentially dangerous” - despite the fact that
supplements have a record of safety that is astonishing.
It is time for these murderous government crimes to end.
It is time
for all responsible parties to be brought to justice, to real
justice. It is time for the public to realize that 100,000 people
dying every year in the US, because they take medical drugs, is the
equivalent of 33 airliner crashes into the Twin Towers, every year,
year after year.
But in this case, it is only necessary for Department of Justice
officials to climb into cars and drive down the road to the
headquarters of the FDA and start making arrests, on a charge of
negligent homicide... At minimum...
