Doctors, their medical organizations and the great pharmaceutical companies practice a sinister form of medicine that directly causes suffering and pain in people's lives.


Thus, I am not surprised when James Howard Kunstler writes that modern medicine is a hostage racket:


Racket of Rackets

If you thought banking in our time was a miserable racket - which it is, of course, and by "racket" I mean a criminal enterprise - then so-called health care has it beat by a country mile, with an added layer of sadism and cruelty built into its operations.


Lots of people willingly sign onto mortgages and car loans they wouldn't qualify for in an ethically sound society, but the interest rates and payments are generally spelled out on paper.


They know what they're signing on for, even if the contract is reckless and stupid on the parts of both borrower and lender.


Pension funds and insurance companies foolishly bought bundled mortgage bonds of this crap concocted in the housing bubble. They did it out of greed and desperation, but a little due diligence would have clued them into the fraud being served up by the likes of Goldman Sachs.

Medicine is utterly opaque cost-wise, and that is the heart of the issue.


Nobody in the system will say what anything costs and nobody wants to because it would break the spell that they work in an honest, legit business. There is no rational scheme for the cost of any service from one "provider" to the next or even one patient to the next.


Anyway, the costs are obscenely inflated and concealed in so many deliberately deceptive coding schemes that even actuaries and professors of economics are confounded by their bills.


The services are provided when the customer is under the utmost duress, often life-threatening, and the outcome even in a successful recovery from illness is financial ruin that leaves a lot of people better off dead.

It is a hostage racket, in plain English, a disgrace to the profession that has adopted it, and an insult to the nation. All the idiotic negotiations in congress around the role of insurance companies are a grand dodge to avoid acknowledging the essential racketeering of the "providers" - doctors and hospitals.


We are never going to reform it in its current incarnation...


For all his personality deformities, President Trump is right in saying that ObamaCare is going to implode. It is only a carbuncle on the gangrenous body of the US medical establishment. The whole system will go down with it...

The New York Times departed from its usual obsessions with Russian turpitude and transgender life last week to publish a valuable briefing on this aspect of the health care racket: Those Indecipherable Medical Bills? - They're One Reason Health Care Costs So Much by Elisabeth Rosenthal.


Much of this covers ground exposed in the now famous March 4, 2013 Time Magazine cover story (it took up the whole issue): Bitter Pill - Why Medical Bills Are Killing Us, by Steven Brill:

The American public and its government have been adequately informed about the gross and lawless chiseling rampant in every quarter of medicine. The system is one of engineered criminality.


It is inflicting ruin on millions. It is really a wonder that the public has not stormed the hospitals with pitchforks and flaming brands to string up that gang in the parking lots high above their Beemers and Lexuses.

There are only two plausible arcs to this story. One is that the nation might face the facts and resort to the Single Payer system found in virtually every other nation that affects to be civilized. There is no other way to eliminate the deliberate racketeering.


The other outcome would be the inevitable collapse of the system and its eventual re-set to a much less complex, cash-on-the-barrelhead, local clinic-based model with far less heroic high-tech interventions available for the broad public, but much more affordable basic care.


Both outcomes would require jettisoning the immense overburden of administrative dross that clutters up the current model, with its absurd tug-of-war between the price-gouging hospital "Chargemaster" clerks and the sadistic insurance company monitors bent on denying treatment to their sick and hapless "customers" (hostages).


Be warned: these represent tens of thousands of supposedly "good" jobs.


Of course, they are "good" because they pay middle class wages, of which there are fewer and fewer elsewhere in the economy. But, they are well-paid because of the grotesquely profitable racket they serve.


They've turned an entire generation of office workers into servants of criminal enterprise. Imagine the damage this does to the soul of our culture.

My suggestion for real reform of the medical racket looks to historical precedent:

In 1932 (before the election of FDR, by the way), the US Senate formed a commission to look into the causes of the 1929 Wall Street Crash and recommend corrections in banking regulation to obviate future episodes like it.


It is known to history as the Pecora Commission, after its chief counsel Ferdinand Pecora, an assistant Manhattan DA, who performed gallantly in his role.


The commission ran for two years. Its hearings led to prison terms for many bankers and ultimately to the Glass-Steagall Act of 1932, which kept banking relatively honest and stable until its nefarious repeal in 1999 under President Bill Clinton - which led rapidly to a new age of Wall Street malfeasance, still underway.

The US Senate needs to set up an equivalent of the Pecora Commission to thoroughly expose the cost racketeering in medicine, enable the prosecution of the people driving it, and propose a Single Payer remedy for flushing it away.


The Department of Justice can certainly apply the RICO anti-racketeering statutes against the big health care conglomerates and their executives personally.


I don't know why it has not done so already - except for the obvious conclusion that our elected officials have been fully complicit in the medical rackets, which is surely the case of new Secretary of Health and Human Services, Tom Price, a former surgeon and congressman who trafficked in medical stocks during his years representing his suburban Atlanta district.


A new commission could bypass this unprincipled clown altogether.

It is getting to the point where we have to ask ourselves if we are even capable of being a serious people anymore. Medicine is now a catastrophe every bit as pernicious as the illnesses it is supposed to treat, and a grave threat to a nation that we're supposed to care about.


What party, extant or waiting to be born, will get behind this cleanup operation?


The majority of people believe in the medical pharmaceutical con... that the snake-oil remedies with all the side effects will actually cure their ailments.


Many people believe this fantasy and are willing to bankrupt themselves and their families in their desperate and misguided need to believe. What they are buying into is disease because modern medicine is a disease, it is a plague and people die right and left from it.


Even when there is good news, when a cancer patient recovers after being poisoned with chemotherapy and radiation the bad news usually comes later when the cancer comes back or a number of side effects like heart attacks set in.





Con Men Who Believe


The religion of medicine is slowly being broken as we discover how fantastic their fantasies are.


When we find out that judges at the German Federal Supreme Court (BGH) confirmed that the measles virus does not exist what are we supposed to think about the field of pediatrics and the integrity of companies that make vaccines.


There is not a single scientific study in the world which could prove the existence of the virus in any scientific literature. This raises the question of what was actually injected into millions over the past few decades.


Certainly nothing good...


We have doctors who like to inject heavy metals into newborn babies and they are called 'pediatricians.'


The Chinese are finding the nerve to finger vaccines as a major cause of Autism, a disease that most often offers a lifetime of torture for families.


In the first court award in a vaccine-autism claim the family of Hannah Poling received more than $1.5 million for her care, lost earnings, and pain and suffering for the first year alone. In addition to the first year, the family will receive more than $500,000 per year to pay for Hannah's care.


In 2002, Hannah's parents filed an autism claim in federal vaccine court. Five years later, the government settled the case before trial and had it sealed.


Lawyers representing the Cherokee Nation filed a lawsuit against major pharmaceutical companies, claiming they have pumped dangerous painkillers into Native American communities in Oklahoma.


There is no end to medical madness and all the ways it can come back to haunt you. Cases of hepatitis C in the United States have nearly tripled within a five-year period, reaching a new 15-year high of around 34,000 new hepatitis C infections in 2015, federal health officials reported.


Experts attribute the higher rates to more injection drug use during the ongoing opioid epidemic.


The Americans at the CDC and FDA would rather cover it all up and let the massacre of minds and hearts continue. The FDA has actually "certified" a 2009 letter sent anonymously by FDA staff to President Obama describing,

"systemic corruption and wrongdoing that permeates all levels of FDA."

A 2017 study in Africa compared a DTP/OPV (diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, oral polio) vaccinated group of children to an unvaccinated group.


The authors found there was a 10-fold increase risk in death in the vaccinated group that received only the DPT shot, as compared to the unvaccinated group.


Merck's Gardasil vaccine causes death, collapse and chronic illness in young women and girls, including a new, never-before described "disease" called Juvenile ALS, a fatal condition in which the nervous system is slowly destroyed while consciousness remains unimpaired.


In the flu vaccine, there is a whopping 51,000 ppb (parts per billion) of mercury in the multi-dose flu vaccine - the most common type of flu vaccine given.


How much is 51,000 ppb?


It is 25,000 times the legal maximum for mercury in drinking water established by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Keep in mind that when you inject mercury, it is 100% absorbed so it is more toxic to inject it as compared to eating it in fish or drinking it in water.


Do pediatricians rise up against the CDC and complain?


For those who think vaccines are safe and pediatricians are saints in white jackets, know that the United States government, as of August 6, 2008, paid out 1.8 billion dollars ($1,804,415,262.35) to parents who brought the cases of their children killed by vaccines or severely damaged (autism) in front of the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.





Corporations that produce drugs that kill and hurt hundreds of thousands of people a year, even when they are properly prescribed, are protected by governments, politicians and arrogant medical officials.


Obamacare and the entire medical establishment paradigm is to force western medicine down everyone's throat.


Karl Denninger says about Obamacare,

"But for virtually everyone else these 'plans' are nothing more than financial rape."


"Every step of the way, the US medical system is greased to perpetuate fraud against taxpayers, against patients, against insurers," writes Mike Shedlock.









Contemporary medicine has become the practice of pharmaceutical terrorism.


Too many doctors think they know better about how other peoples' lives should be lived or ended.

"The FDA has assumed for itself Godlike power, requiring that its official approval be obtained before any substance can legally be used in the prevention and treatment of disease.


The FDA's legal-regulatory control therefore is totalitarian and Napoleonic in construct; what it does not explicitly permit as a medicine is implicitly forbidden," writes Sayer Ji, founder of

The worst terrorists are of course those who will not admit they are.


Medicine kills more people than any other form of terrorism. Did you know that the CDC is looking for police powers for a mandatory vaccination program? Get vaccinated or go to jail!


Radiologists administer near lethal dosages meaning they put their cancer patients in front of a nuclear firing squad when they administer radiation as a cancer treatment.


When radiation therapy is used to treat cancer, a very large dose of radiation, about 5,000,000 millirem (or 5,000 rem or 50,000 mSv) is delivered to the tumor site.


Below is a chart that says that each dose of radiation treatment delivers 2,000,000 millirem so with the multiple treatments most patients receive it is easy to see how fast they get up to a fatal dose.


Ten thousand mSv is a fatal dose. That is 10,000,000 millirem...





The general nature of 'evil' is to not have consciousness of the effect that our actions have on the feelings and emotional world of others. Doctors have no excuse for how many people they kill each year, at least in America - statistics are kept and published.


The destiny of medicine is in the hands of madmen - totally deranged executives of big pharmaceutical companies in cooperation with the FDA and doctors - who are hell bent on getting as many people on their dangerous drugs as they possibly can.


Pharmaceutical terrorism is a term I coined 14 years ago when I published Cry of the Heart, a book about the tragic situation centering on the childhood vaccination program.


That work reached its full expression in The Terror of Pediatric Medicine.


Dr. Viera Scheibner gives us an explanation of why some doctors have fallen to such a low state.

"The inability to listen and observe the truth has created a breed of medical practitioners who inflict illness rather than healing, who become accusers rather than helpers, and who are ultimately just covering up - whether consciously or unknowingly, but with frighteningly increasing frequency - for the disasters created by their useless and deadly concoctions and sanctimonious ministrations."

As long as Big Pharma runs medicine, we will never have a health care system that has interest in teaching people how to be healthy.


When profits come from sickness, the corporations find creative ways of sickening people with their dangerous drugs, surgeries, chemotherapy and radiation treatments not to mention all their dangerous tests (CAT Scans) where they cannot even control the dosages of radiation most patients receive.
