State of Wisconsin Busts Quackbuster  Employee… NAET Vindicated…

Things are fermenting in the cheese State.

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

The State of Wisconsin is taking positive steps to rid itself of the influence of the quackusters.  Yesterday, Governor James Doyle’s appointee, Donsia Strong Hill, Secretary of the Department of Regulation & Licensing (DORL) announced the reversal, by her office, of a decision of an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) under her command.

James Polewski, a DORL prosecutor, had attacked a licensed Nurse practitioner, Barbara Lemke, with “practicing medicine without a license” for engaging in the practice of NAET (Nambudripad Allergy Elimination Technique). Polewski, in a deposition, was forced to admit under oath, that he was in fact, a member of the National Council Against Health Fraud (NCAHF) and a Skeptic.

Federal Prison For Quackbusters?

Official Health care in North America is a disaster.  It is designed “not to work,” INTENTIONALLY.  In Official Health care America, nobody ever gets “cured” of anything – only “treated.”  The system feeds massive amounts of cash into the hands of the greedy – with little, or no benefit to Americans.

AS WE SEE IT – Jerry Falwell Attacks Life Extension Foundation

Guest Editorial By William Faloon

Note:  This is a LONG article FULL of information important to the North American Health Freedom Movement.  Take the time to read it all.  You’ll be glad you did. – Tim Bolen

On July 8, 2003, an editorial by the Reverend Jerry Falwell was published in the Washington Times newspaper. The purpose of this editorial was to discourage lawmakers from passing a bill that would enable Americans to purchase lower cost medications from countries that have safety standards comparable to those of the United States.

Day Two:  The Proper Way to Treat a Quackbuster…

Madison Wisconsin – At the end of “Day One” of the trial (cross-examination) of top “quackbusterRobert S. Baratz MD, DDS, PhD, the Judge called in the attorneys for a short meeting.  In essence he said “Enough is enough. This has gone on too long. There’s no reason to go on with this farce.  I want the defense to wrap up their cross-examination by 11:00am, the prosecutor to finish re-direct by 12:00 noon, and after lunch we’re going to settle this case.”

The quackbuster’s last assault, the attack against Green Bay Physician Eleazar Kadile MD, their last attempt at glory, has been stopped DEAD in it’s tracks.  All that’s left is the settlement agreement, and the punishment that’s going to be exacted on the perpetrators.

Day One:  Bobbie Sweats Thru His K-Mart Suit…

When top quackbuster Robert S. Baratz MD, DDS, PhD walked up the Wisconsin’s Department of Regulation (DORL) hallway towards hearing room 291, at 8:55am, and saw me (Tim Bolen) standing there talking to a uniformed Capitol Police officer, Arthur Thexton, the DORL attorney, almost had to carry Baratz the last fifty feet into the room.  Baratz looked like a death row prisoner heading towards the gas chamber.

Good comparison.

Schultz, Albers Blast Chelation Therapy Witch Hunt

Schultz, Albers Blast Chelation Therapy Witch Hunt

State Agency Spends $50,000 On “Expert” Witness With Suspect Background

 

State Capitol – Sen. Dale Schultz (R – Richland Center) and Rep. Sheryl Albers (R – Reedsburg) questioned today the legitimacy of a disciplinary process underway against a state doctor using alternative therapies to treat patients.

The Department of Regulation and Licensing (DRL) is currently in the middle of disciplinary proceeding against Dr. Eleazar Kadile, in part for using chelation therapy as an alternative treatment for patients with heart disease.  Similar arguments have been levied at LaValle resident Dr. Robert Waters, who runs the Waters Preventative Medicine Center in Wisconsin Dells.

“We have constituents who swear by this treatment.  If they feel better as a result of it, who are we to take that from them?” said Schultz.  “When it comes to health care, individuals should make these decisions, not overzealous paper-pushers.”

Much of the attention surrounds the state’s expert witness, Dr. Robert Baratz.  Baratz runs the National Council Against Health Fraud (NCAHF), a non-profit organization based near Boston, Massachusetts.  However, many individuals have questioned his professional credibility.  He has been accused of padding his resume as an expert in alternative medicine so that he can collect fees for testifying before licensing and review boards.  To date, Baratz has received $48,806 in state funds for his services.  According to Christopher Klein, DRL Executive Assistant, Baratz has dropped off an additional stack of invoices to cover his fees for this appearance.  However, it is unclear as to what further payments Baratz will receive from the state.

According to the NCAHF’s 2001 tax return, the non-profit organization reported just $17,967 in contributions, including $13,000 from one individual.  “No matter how big or grand it tries to appear on paper, this organization is hardly a major player in the medical field,” Albers said.

“As taxpayers, we are outraged that a person with such a questionable record has soaked us to the tune of $50,000,” Schultz added.  “We’re paying $50,000 to fly in some character from Boston who has entire websites devoted to questioning his expertise.  Sounds to me like a bad investment of our tax dollars.”

At the request of Dr. Robert Waters, Schultz and Albers have introduced identical bills in the Senate and Assembly to allow physicians who practice chelation therapy to do so without aggressive bureaucrats attacking their credibility. “Dale and I are both aware that studies are still being done as to the effectiveness of chelation therapy for some conditions,” Albers said.  “The FDA licenses chelation therapy for treating lead toxicity.  Dr. Waters provides chelation therapy as one option for his patients and properly informs them of the potential risks.  If people want to spend their hard-earned money on this treatment, why shouldn’t they be able to?”

Happy Birthday Bobbie!!! – Surprise Party Planned…

The Wisconsin trial (cross-examination) of Robert S. Baratz MD, DDS, PhD has been moved one day, and will now begin on July 15th, 2003, and extend through July 17th, 2003.  Baratz will be questioned, for three full days, on his credibility and the claims he made on his resume.  Baratz’s resume seems to be a fantasy world of his own devising, as investigation doesn’t bear out his claims.

The Quackbuster’s Newest Scam – “Operation Cure-All”…

I need to make something clear.  DO NOT, for a minute, think that the quackpot soldiers you see, like Stephen Barrett, and Robert Baratz, are running  the whole quackbuster operation. They are not bright enough.  They are the ones the quackbuster paymasters want us all to see.  They’re the front men. They’ve got their function, but it’s only part of the game.

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

I think the whole “Quackbuster” conspiracy, and I have documents that back up my thinking, is being run out of a conference room at a pharmaceutical advertising agency in New York City. It’s there that all the decisions, and plans are made, about where to focus the campaign, who to attack, and what cards to play in each attack. It’s there that the checks are written.  Continue reading The Quackbuster’s Newest Scam – “Operation Cure-All”…

It’s easy.  You set out cheese.  

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

Our project in Wisconsin is a prime example of how to deal with quackbusters, correctly, and efficiently.  First, understand who, and what, you’re dealing with.  Once you know that, you’ve installed a ring in their nose, which you can use to lead them to their end.  That’s what we’re doing to Robert S. Baratz MD, DDS, PhD, the current President of the National Council Against Health Fraud (NCAHF) in Wisconsin. Continue reading How Do You Trap A Quackbuster?

Come out and play with the big kids on July 11, 2003…  another victory in sight. You’re invited.

I like working with the Dental Division of the North American Health Freedom Movement.  Attend one of their high-energy meetings, and you’ll see why.  They’re like the Eveready Bunny, in a bunch… Nice people, too. Hard-charging, these are the people who make American Dental Association leadership, and attorneys, take Valium, so they can sleep at night.

For Quackbuster’s NCAHF – It’s All Over But The Shouting…

The Quackbuster Flagship sank today.  A Three Judge California Appeals Court broad-sided it.  Let’s all go watch it slide under the waves.  Bring a bottle of wine and some paper cups.

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

We already know that the quackbusters have ZERO credibility with the American court system.   So it’s not going to be a surprise to anyone that the National Council Against Health Fraud (NCAHF), today, lost the decision they appealed over the case called “NCAHF v. Botanical laboratories, et al.”

Here are the the Three Judge Panel’s words… Continue reading For Quackbuster’s NCAHF – It’s All Over But The Shouting…

Quackpot Baratz goes on trial in Wisconsin July 14th, 2003…

It won’t be long now…

Soon we’ll get to see the President of the National Council Against Health Fraud (NCAHF) crying his eyes out in a courtroom again.   Whimpering, and stuttering, his way through “expert testimony” (I have a video tape) last October 2002 in Wisconsin, Robert S.Baratz MD, DDS. PhD., broke into crocodile tears, snuffling out “I was a paper boy at eight and a half years old.  Then I was a boy scout (sniff, sniff).  Then I got the order of the arrow (snuffle, snort),”  Baratz did everything but wet his pants when confronted about his expertise, and his credibility.

Quackpot Barrett Crushed in Federal Court – Again..

Some people never learn.  Stephen Barrett (quackwatch.com) seems to be one of those.

Despite loss after loss, and humiliation on top of humiliation, self styled quackbuster Stephen Barrett trudges on to the next embarrassment.

Like a bug in the fast lane,  Barrett is doomed to be wiped off the windshield of the North American Health Freedom Movement time after time, I guess. Continue reading Quackpot Barrett Crushed in Federal Court – Again..

OPENING THE MEDICINE CABINET: FIRST REPORT ON HEALTH ASPECTS OF PRESCRIPTION DRUGS

COMMITTEE APPROACH

In June 2003, the Canadian House of Commons Standing Committee on Health agreed to a study on prescription drugs (patented and generic) in Canada. Through a primary focus on the health aspects, it undertook to examine costs; price controls; drug approvals; adverse drug reactions; prescribing practices; marketing to and lobbying of prescribers and dispensers; direct-to-consumer advertising; access to drugs; and, misuse, abuse and addiction within the general population.

Over two months in the fall of 2003, the Health Committee held extensive hearings on the health-related aspects of prescription drugs. In addition to frequent meetings in Ottawa, the Committee travelled to western and eastern destinations to listen to the views of Canadians. This work produced a rich body of evidence and revealed multiple issues of shared concern. Continue reading OPENING THE MEDICINE CABINET: FIRST REPORT ON HEALTH ASPECTS OF PRESCRIPTION DRUGS

California Appeals Court BLUDGEONS Quackbusters…

A California Appeals Court, yesterday, April 22, 2003, bludgeoned the National Council Against Health Fraud (NCAHF), and their whole argument about what constitutes good and bad health care.  

The quackbuster’s operating theme, the argument they use against alternative proponents, came under a major American Court’s scrutiny.  The Court, basically, in their decision, said the the quackbuster’s arguments were hogwash, and they had no business meddling in California’s system.

The Court also declared that top quackbusters Stephen Barrett (quackwatch.com), and Wallace Sampson MD (Scientific Review of Alternative and Aberrant Medicine)  “were found to be biased and unworthy of credibility.”

Hell Hath No Fury Like a Quackbuster Scorned…

It’s tough being a quackbuster these days. They get no respect. Why should they?  

The North American public has identified the true intent of the stumbling, bumbling mini-cult that years ago, pompously paraded itself across North America as “The Quackbusters.”  Now, most places, they’re a joke.  And, they don’t seem to like that…

Failed MD Stephen Barrett

What kind of man would drop out of the medical profession and dedicate his life to STOPPING advancement in the health sciences?

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen  

The MOST IMPORTANT thing to understand about Stephen Barrett is that…

It is common knowledge that Stephen Barrett has been Officially Declared by the US Court System, in a PUBLISHED Appeals Court Decision (NCAHF v King BioCalifornia Appeals Court BLUDGEONS Quackbusters), to be “Biased, and unworthy of credibility.”

What that statement means, in layman’s terms, simply, is that it is common knowledge that OFFICIALLY – NOTHING BARRETT SAYS CAN BE LEGALLY RELIED UPON. Continue reading Failed MD Stephen Barrett

Health Care in North America – The Real Issue is “Suppression.”

Let’s talk about my friend, and health activist, Ed McCabe…  A man with answers.

Every day we read articles about how bad the health care system is in the United States.  Those articles are all frighteningly true.  It’s an American scandal.  Things are so bad, Americans are learning to take care of themselves rather than risk seeing a doctor, or going to a hospital.
