    Default Big Pharma as Organized Crime

    Dr. Peter Gøtzsche exposes Big Pharma as organized crime

    Heather Callaghan Natural Blaze
    Tue, 23 May 2017 19:01 UTC

    The drug industry buys the professors first, then chiefs of department, then the other chief physicians and so on. They don't buy junior doctors.
    - Dr. Peter Gøtzsche
    Big Pharma drugs kill around 200,000 Americans every year - half of them die while doing what their doctors told them. Sadly, the side effects and medical errors combine to cause the 3rd leading cause of death in America.

    Peter C. Gøtzsche, MD is a Danish medical researcher and the author of Deadly Medicines and Organized Crime: How Big Pharma has Corrupted Healthcare.

    In this video interview courtesy of Dr. John McDougall, he exposes how the pharmaceutical companies stealthily act as an organized crime ring unbeknownst to the consumer.

    I wish there were more Drs. like him.

    Genocide takes many forms, as I can see more of every day and money
    is a big part of it.
    It will take nothing short of a disaster, that will stop the use electronic manipulation,
    to make humans stop and start to think for a change.

    Unfortunately, a lot of people will have to die before we will truly wake up.

    Now, people die because of too much false info.
    This needs to stop.

    Here's another great interview that expose the Pharmafiaceutical Empire. Jonathan Emord is a lawyer who has sued big pharma, and to great amazement of his colleagues, actually won. They control the courts, the politicians, the university "scientists", and any institution that can define for you what "health" and "safety" is.

    Here's an interesting Global Research article "The Evils of Big Pharma Exposed" by Joachim Hagopian. I'm sure most of the information revealed in it will be of little to no surprise to most Avalonians, but perhaps it will be useful to noobs and others who are beginning to open their eyes and seeing that things are not what they're claimed to be.

    It may also shed some light on why the U.S. "healthcare system" is seriously broken and why it will NOT be fixed by our government (Republicans or Democrats). It can only be fixed when the American people decide they've had enough of the theft, corruption and killing and unite to finally put an end to it all. The $64,000 question is how that can be achieved in a peaceful, compassionate and just manner.

    Italy facing unprecedented mandatory vaccine push

    Jefferey Jaxen Green Med Info
    Thu, 25 May 2017 15:29 UTC



    The people of Italy are currently facing an unprecedented assault on their health choice and informed consent.

    A 2015 government plan in Italy aimed to boost vaccination rates and introduce a series of new vaccines triggering protests among Italian citizens. The National Vaccination Plan for 2016 - 18 would instantly make Italy a European frontrunner in vaccination. At the time, many questioned the sudden vaccine push. Some suspected the hand of Big Pharma behind the government's new plan which was confirmed when the Italian Medicines Agency (AIFA) suspended Sergio Pecorelli, the president of its board and one of the authors of the new plan, because of his conflicts of interest with Big Pharma. In addition, GlaxoSmithKline made headlines in 2015 with their announcement to invest more than €1 billion in Italy over the next four years.

    Now recently, The Council of Ministers, on the proposal of President Paolo Gentiloni and the Minister of Health Beatrice Lorenzin, approved an emergency decree containing what they deemed "urgent measures in disease prevention." According to the decree, vaccinations may only be omitted or deferred in the event of an established health condition in relation to specific, documented proof by a general practitioner or pediatrician. The full language of the decree has not been made public, causing many in Italy to speculate as to what is in the document. Only a short list of bullet points has been posted on the government's website containing the information below.

    The decree has the following key measures:
    • A € 500.00 to € 7,500.00 penalty is imposed on those who refuse to follow the decree;
    • The parent or the parental authority of the child who violates the obligation to vaccinate is reported by the Azienda Sanitaria Locale [local health authority] to the Juvenile Court for the suspension of parental authority;
    • Children who do not have the mandatory vaccinations cannot be enrolled in public or private schools, including childcare;
    • The decree measures come into force at the beginning of the next school year (2018).
    The vaccinations the Italian decree demands parents comply with are:
    • poliomyelitis
    • diphtheria
    • tetanus
    • hepatitis B
    • pertussis
    • Haemophilus influenzae type b
    • meningococcal B & C
    • measles, mumps and rubella
    • varicella
    Echoing Nancy Pelosi's infamous 2010 statement "We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it," Italy's mandatory vaccine orders will become public once they are signed into law by the President of the Italian Republic. Initially, the Italian government declared that children will be removed from their families for not complying and then immediately retracted the statement without explanation. It wasn't until journalists revisited the topic that it garnered widespread public backlash, however there's been no further official statement from the Italian government other than what little information is suggested on their website.

    Many in Italy have been vocal on both sides of the vaccine push. As witnessed in other countries, false vaccine industry talking points, regurgitated through official government mouthpieces, are being increasingly dismantled with facts or simply ignored by the public. Many Italian citizens are questioning the deeper intentions and risks of mandatory vaccinations. The Italian government's response of censorship and force is speaking volumes to those watching.

    Ranieri Guerra, the director general for preventive health at the Ministry of Health speaking about the vaccine hesitancy of younger parents stated,

    "The usual institutional lines of communication do not work..." Guerra continued, "We're talking about letting them know what appropriate information they can access, rather than using whatever rubbish is published on the internet - because that's another issue." The government is also looking into ways of prosecuting doctors who actively persuade parents against vaccination. "This is unacceptable ... it's close to being a crime," added Guerra.

    For some public figures in Italy, there is no illusion as to what their country appears to be facing. Italy's populist five-star movement founder Beppe Grillo wrote in 2015, "Mandatory vaccination represented a gift for multinational pharmaceutical firms" as his party attempted to pass a law prohibiting mandatory vaccination. Recently appearing on Italy's Radio 24, Senator Bartolomeo Pepe said, "Vaccines are not safe. I will give fifty thousand euros to those who show the opposite." Pepe went even further saying,
    "The Italian Medicines Agency and The European Medicines Agency are at the service of pharmaceutical companies."
    Shortly before GlaxoSmithKline announced its €1 billion investment in Italy, The Italian Medicines Agency suddenly and without warning stopped publicly publishing its vaccine surveillance data, which tracks adverse vaccine reactions.

    On May 19, President of the Italian consumer advocacy group called Coordination of Associations for the Protection of the Environment and the Rights of Users and Consumers (CODACONS) Carlo Rienzi announced his organization is making a formal complaint to the Minister of Health to publish all vaccine adverse event data for the period from 2014 to present. CODACONS has activated in the face of Italy's mandatory vaccination decree by helping parents navigate the proposed law in an effort to understand their vaccine rights.

    Italy's history of mandatory vaccination is rooted in political corruption at the hands of Big Pharma. In 1991, then Minister of Health Francesco De Lorenzo made the Hepatitis B vaccine [Engerix B] mandatory after accepting € 600 million from GlaxoSmithKline (then SmithKline Beecham). More than twenty years later in 2012, the Italian Supreme court found De Lorenzo, and his Health Ministry counterpart Duilio Poggiolini, guilty of corruption and bribery.

    The pair was also sentenced to pay over € 5 million each for the damages caused by the unnecessary vaccine mandate.

    In Italy, the right to a public education is not only guaranteed, it is also compulsory by law. The Italian government's emergency vaccination decree, if signed into law, will be at direct odds to its own long-standing public education mandate.

    As for testing medical products [vaccinations] on the public, a 2016 bill was approved by the Italian Senate of the Republic. The Initiative relaxed the standards and research protections regarding clinical trials of medicines, including vaccinations, and set in motion the reorganization of the Italian healthcare system.

    Despite facing what appears to be institutional and regulatory corruption, the Italian people are rapidly activating in defense of their medical rights and in protection of their children. Many have been vocal in public and online pointing out their captured governmental agencies as well as the well-documented dangers of vaccination. A national public demonstration and protest is planned for June 11 in Rome.

    I suggest that all the Cardinals of the Catholic Church, including the Popes, be the first to take these vaccines. However, the vaccines must be taken randomly from those which have been prepared for the general public. In a manner of speaking, killing two birds with one stone.

    Yes true, its also true that we can exist without money and that without money there wont be corruption or perhaps very very small corruption.

    The world will be a lot better place without money. Its been discuss here many times and everyone agrees that money is use to control people. Isnt freedom from what we want?

    Without money there wont be big pharma or any organize crime isnt that wonderful?

    What is mans innate nature? is it greed? Greed and ego is a result of continued brainwashing. The moment it stops we will revert to our original nature. Of course we first need to wrestle the control from people who do the brainwashing and perhaps we'll do our own version of "brain reforming"

    the continuous brainwashing is certainly a big factor.... but not necessarily the only one..... we are contracted points of awareness/consciousness and have to wrestle with selfish-ness/self-interest until we come to see the boundaries of self do not stop at the border of ones skin.....when we all would see the others as being no different than parts of one's own self, and not just as some intellectual abstracted concept, but as a visceral and immediate reality, then we will see the change...
    I like to define love as connection and spirituality as awareness of the depths of that connection.....
    when people see others as parts of their selves, then who would do any others harm?

    humans in general seem to be the only specie on earth with head full of hair and almost bald skin on the rest of the body. All other specie either have feathers, hair or scales all over. maybe this cause the confusion. Maybe we are created by gods to their own likeness with the mind and reproduction system of a primate.

    Politicians, Drs. and Professionals know they don't have a choice so they go along, for the most part. Is the situation hopeless? Of course not. But we need to realize that there is the phenomenon of "them" and "us." They are our enemy, a very real enemy.


    Check out THE GEORGIA GUIDE STONES" in the USA.
    If you have not read and studied what they say, I recommend that you do.

    If I tell you that 'they' are not entirely human you may stop reading unless
    you're a David Icke fan.

    We have been told in countless ways, "that they put it all out there in the open." They have to as it is part of their belief system.
    They have slowly poisoned our food, water, air and our health. As Jim Marrs said, "They want us dead." Could that be more plain

    It's up to each one of us individually to do our part. So, pass it on and on and on.......

    Big Pharma’s control over the news

    by Jon Rappoport Dec 15, 2017

    Over the last 11 months, pharmaceutical companies have spent a stunning $3.2 billion on TV ads for drugs.

    That much money buys you influence. It buys you control.

    If a major network suddenly decided to set its hounds loose and investigate the overall devastating effects of medical drugs on the public, there would be hell to pay at the network. Drug companies wouldn’t stand for it.

    Robert F Kennedy, Jr., whose film, Trace Amounts, about toxic mercury in vaccines, was getting no media coverage, made this comment:
    “I talked to Roger Ailes [then CEO of FOX News], who I have known since I was 17 years old, he’s very sympathetic with this issue and saw the film Trace Amounts. I said to him,
    ‘I just want to go on one of your shows. Nobody will allow me to talk about this or debate me.’
    He said to me,
    ‘I can’t allow you on any of them. I’d have to fire any of my hosts that allowed you on my station.’
    Because, he said,
    ‘My news division gets up to 70% of advertising revenues during non-election years from the pharmaceutical companies’.”
    That’s called control.

    There is a wider sphere to consider. Through octopus foundations like Rockefeller and Gates, for example, the medical/pharma agenda is part and parcel of the Globalist agenda. That is key. Gathering in the world population under the umbrella of “humanitarian health care” is a covert op of the highest order.

    How can you control billions of people, erase national borders, destroy untold numbers of communities and their traditions, wage senseless wars, send millions of jobs out of industrial countries to Third World backwaters, and build a de facto global management system—unless you can also debilitate, weaken, confuse, toxify, and thus pacify those billions of people?

    Accomplishing this is the work of the pharmaceutical empire.

    I have produced, many times, open-source mainstream reviews of the death and damage numbers wrought by “Rockefeller medicine.” In the US, 106,000 deaths every year from government-approved medicines. In the US and Europe, 330,000 die, every year, from correctly prescribed drugs. 6.6 million hospitalizations occur. 80 million adverse effects occur. These are conservative estimates.

    So…what is the likelihood that pharma-controlled mainstream news will dig deeply into the issue of Globalism, the major tyrannical movement of our time?

    The likelihood is zero.

    The influence of pharmaceutical interests on the news is, therefore, much greater than most people can fathom, in their wildest dreams.

    Most people, when confronted with these pharmaceutical death-and-destruction reports, will immediately dismiss them as impossible. Others, who accept the reports, will claim the “unfortunate” facts show no intention to harm whatsoever.

    However, the reports are public knowledge. They’ve been available to one and all. Government officials—and particularly, pharma princes—know the truth. And they’re doing nothing about it.

    This is called a clue.

    If you were in charge of a juggernaut operation that was causing this much horrific damage, and you knew it, would you stand by and let it keep happening? Would you foster the development of new drugs whose effects would only add to the ongoing tragedy? And would you exert such powerful control over major media that the truth could not be told?

    I didn’t think so.

    The pharma princes are not like you. You can’t see who they are if you look through the lens of your morality. They don’t share that morality. They don’t resemble you. Don’t ascribe your qualities to them. They don’t respond to life as you do. Their capacity for self-deception is awesome. Your good is not their good.

    It is as if they were born freezing and never recovered. They come from an Ice Age and their blood is still cold.

    They are rigid robots. Muscular truth can take them down.

    Prozac mass murders: the truth comes to light

    by Jon Rappoport Oct 2, 2019

    If you were the head of a drug company…

    If you had no conscience (the key fact)…

    If one of your drugs was causing people to commit murder…

    If MANY law suits against your company were waiting to go to trial…

    And if the first such trial was convening…

    And if the verdict in that case would influence the outcome of all the other law suits…

    What would you do?

    This is the story of a medical drug, a famous drug company, trust, betrayal, and mass murder.

    After 30 years, the truth is confirmed—Eli Lilly, the maker of Prozac, secretly paid off plaintiffs in a court case.

    The plaintiffs were families of victims killed by a man who went violently crazy after taking Prozac.

    The mass shooting took place in 1989, in Kentucky. I covered the case in 1999, by which time the Lilly payoff was an open secret among some lawyers, doctors, and reporters.

    But NOW we have confessions from the plaintiffs who took Lilly’s money. In the trial, Eli Lilly was exonerated, absolved of any blame for murders by the jury.

    Ahrp.org:
    “The Louisville Courier Journal reports that thirty years after Joseph Wesbecker went on a deadly shooting rampage in Louisville Kentucky, on September 14, 1989, the families and survivors of his actions have finally come forward to tell the truth. They were plaintiffs in a lawsuit against Eli Lilly because they had reason to believe that Prozac, manufactured by Lilly, had been the trigger that propelled Wesbecker on his violent rampage. Eli Lilly had paid these plaintiffs $20 million in hush money to conceal damaging evidence about Lilly’s culpability in marketing defective, deadly drugs from the jury in the Wesbecker- Eli Lilly trial.”
    The Louisville Courier Journal:
    “On the eve of the jury’s verdict, which absolved Lilly of liability, the company made the secret payment without telling the judge overseeing the case. In exchange for the payment, the plaintiffs – eight estates and 11 survivors – agreed to withhold damaging evidence about the arthritis drug Oraflex that Lilly withdrew from the market. Lilly [had previously] pleaded guilty to 25 criminal misdemeanor counts for failing to report adverse reactions that patients suffered from the drug [Oraflex], and the drug company feared that the Prozac jury would be more inclined to rule against the drugmaker [on Prozac] if it learned of it.”
    In other words, the court, which was willing to hear evidence about Lilly’s Oraflex cover-up, never did hear that evidence, which would have alerted the jury that Eli Lilly had a track record of concealing damning truths about its drugs.

    AHRP:
    “Circuit Judge John Potter, the judge in the [Prozac] case, suspected that Lilly bribed plaintiffs and their lawyers before the jury verdict. He uncovered evidence of bribery, and fought Eli Lilly for years but failed to obtain [proof of] the terms of the [Prozac payoff] deal. Lilly succeeded in keeping its criminal action from a judicial proceeding. As is Eli Lilly’s norm and practice; it trashed the judge for his pursuit of the truth.”
    The Louisville Courier Journal:
    “The drugmaker that produces Prozac, the antidepressant that Joseph Wesbecker’s victims blamed for his deadly shooting rampage 30 years ago at Standard Gravure, secretly paid the victims $20 million [in 1994] to help ensure a verdict exonerating the drug company. Indianapolis-based Eli Lilly vigorously shielded the payment for more than two decades, defying a Louisville judge who fought to reveal it because he said it swayed the jury’s verdict.”

    “Wesbecker began taking Prozac about a month before his murderous spree that killed eight and wounded 12 in the print shop attached to the Courier Journal. All but one of the victims sued Eli Lilly, the company that manufactured the popular but controversial drug.”

    “On Sept. 14, 1989, Wesbecker, a pressman who had been placed on long-term disability leave for severe mental illness, entered Standard Gravure around 8:30 a.m., carrying a bag full of weapons, including a semiautomatic rifle. Over the next 30 minutes, Wesbecker walked through the building, firing more than 40 rounds at those he encountered before shooting himself in the [head] with a handgun. It is the worst mass shooting in Kentucky’s history.”
    You need to understand that a diagnosis of “severe mental illness” is a far cry from “killing eight people and wounding 12 people.” The two factors are not automatically connected as cause and effect. If they were, we would see a dozen mass murders every day. That said, according to press reports, Wesbecker did have thoughts about committing violence before he was started on Prozac, and even made threats to commit murder. But he didn’t kill anyone until after taking Prozac. And the charge against Prozac was: it was the chemical trigger that pushed Wesbecker over the edge from thought into horrific action. (In that regard, see the brief collection of studies I cite below.) In any event, no argument about motivations for murder justifies Eli Lilly’s $20 million bribe to the plaintiffs. Lilly wanted an absolute slam dunk in the Wesbecker trial, to protect itself from many other law suits where, no doubt, the role of Prozac in suicide and murder was more vivid.

    You also need to understand the status of Prozac in the years leading up to the rigged 1994 trial in Kentucky that falsely exonerated Eli Lilly. I’m talking about media coverage, psychiatric literature, the court system, and the mindset of the public. Prozac was precariously perched on a ledge. Would it gain universal acceptance? Would it be exposed as a gross danger? At the time of the Kentucky court case, there were roughly 100 other law suits against the drug heading toward trial. The outcome of the Kentucky Wesbecker case would send a powerful signal to lawyers and plaintiffs about the odds of winning judgments against Eli Lilly and Prozac. If Lilly were exonerated in Kentucky (and it was, through payoffs), lawyers in other such cases would back off. They would see little point in trying to prove Prozac was a grave danger.

    Here is some background about Prozac in those years. It illustrates how great the threat was to Eli Lilly’s blockbuster antidepressant then—and, by comparison, how little any concern is allowed into the public arena now.

    On February 7th, 1991, Amy Marcus’ Wall Street Journal article on the drug carried the headline, “Murder Trials Introduce Prozac Defense.” She wrote, “A spate of murder trials in which defendants claim they became violent when they took the antidepressant Prozac are imposing new problems for the drug’s maker, Eli Lilly and Co.”

    Also on February 7, 1991, the New York Times ran a Prozac piece headlined, “Suicidal Behavior Tied Again to Drug: Does Antidepressant Prompt Violence?”

    In his landmark book, Toxic Psychiatry, Dr. Breggin mentions that the Donahue show (Feb. 28, 1991) “put together a group of individuals who had become compulsively self-destructive and murderous after taking Prozac and the clamorous telephone and audience response confirmed the problem.”

    Breggin also cites a troubling study from the February 1990 American Journal of Psychiatry (Teicher et al, v.147:207-210) which reports on
    “six depressed patients, previously free of recent suicidal ideation, who developed intense, violent suicidal preoccupations after 2-7 weeks of fluoxetine [Prozac] treatment. The suicidal preoccupations lasted from three days to three months after termination of the treatment. The report estimates that 3.5 percent of Prozac users were at risk. While denying the validity of the study, Dista Products, a division of Eli Lilly, put out a brochure for doctors dated August 31, 1990, stating that it was adding ‘suicidal ideation’ to the adverse events section of its Prozac product information.”
    An earlier study, from the September 1989 Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, by Joseph Lipiniski, Jr., indicates that, in five examined cases, people on Prozac developed what is called akathisia. Symptoms include intense anxiety, inability to sleep, the “jerking of extremities,” and “bicycling in bed or just turning around and around.” Breggin comments that akathisia “may also contribute to the drug’s tendency to cause self-destructive or violent tendencies … Akathisia can become the equivalent of biochemical torture and could possibly tip someone over the edge into self-destructive or violent behavior … The June 1990 Health Newsletter, produced by the Public Citizen Research Group, reports, ‘Akathisia, or symptoms of restlessness, constant pacing, and purposeless movements of the feet and legs, may occur in 10-25 percent of patients on Prozac.’”

    There are other studies: “Emergence of self-destructive phenomena in children and adolescents during fluoxetine [Prozac] treatment,” published in the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (1991, vol.30), written by RA King, RA Riddle, et al. It reports self-destructive phenomena in 14% (6/42) of children and adolescents (10-17 years old) who had treatment with fluoxetine (Prozac) for obsessive-compulsive disorder.

    July, 1991. Journal of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. Hisako Koizumi, MD, describes a thirteen-year-old boy who was on Prozac: “full of energy,” “hyperactive,” “clown-like.” All this devolved into sudden violent actions which were “totally unlike him.”

    September, 1991. The Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. Author Laurence Jerome reports the case of a ten-year old who moves with his family to a new location. Becoming depressed, the boy is put on Prozac by a doctor. The boy is then “hyperactive, agitated … irritable.” He makes a “somewhat grandiose assessment of his own abilities.” Then he calls a stranger on the phone and says he is going to kill him. The Prozac is stopped, and the symptoms disappear.

    (What is true about Prozac is true about Paxil or Zoloft or any of the other SSRI antidepressants. And be warned: suddenly withdrawing from any psychiatric drug can be extremely dangerous to the patient. Gradual withdrawal must be done under the supervision of a professional who understands exactly what he/she is doing.)

    So—A drug company, Eli Lilly; a drug, Prozac; mass murder; trust; betrayal.

    A final piece of the truth now comes to light in the Wesbecker case.

    In this sordid drama, there are many other actors. I’ve covered them in other articles. But I can’t let this article end without mentioning the FDA, the sole federal agency responsible for certifying all medical drugs as safe and effective for public use. That agency went rogue a long, long time ago. It takes no responsibility for launching killer chemicals on the population. It operates as a colluding partner with the pharmaceutical industry. Trusting the FDA to protect people from drugs such as Prozac is like trusting a PR company, hired to promote war, to maintain the peace.
