The Democratic Party Collapse…

It Is Here Right Now..

By Kent Heckenlively, JD

When I was younger I wrote a great deal about politics and many thought I’d eventually run for office.  I mean, isn’t that the eventual goal of everybody who writes about politics?  It’s just the platform they’re using to get to the next step?

But my college roommate had a different take.  He said, “Kent, you’re doing just what you want to do, writing about what you think is important.  There is no next step for you.”

So there you have it.  

For the last fifteen years I’ve been consumed with autism, the corrupt vaccine schedule, and the political patterns which have allowed this holocaust to rage unchecked in our world.

Yes, I will use the word, holocaust.

Let me say it clearly: Both democratic and republican politicians have allowed this holocaust to rage unchecked.  Republicans may be salvageable at this point. Democrats have embraced lunacy and nothing short of an intervention will save them.

From my knowledge of history I can tell you that I could have easily been an FDR democrat, a Harry Truman democrat, a John F. Kennedy democrat, and although it may come as a shock to some, I voted for Bill Clinton twice, and was happy to do it. (You see, no political party really wants me, because I’m not anybody’s ‘reliable’ vote.)

Aside from his significant personal failings, Bill Clinton is the model democrats should be following in the wake of the Trump victory, but probably will not. Politics is the art of persuasion, not shouting down those who disagree with you. It also helps if you understand the weaknesses of your own arguments and the strengths of your opponents arguments.

After the democrats had lost five out of the last six presidential elections (Nixon, Nixon, Carter, Reagan, Reagan, Bush), Clinton founded the Southern Democratic Leadership Council.  The goal was to figure out why democrats kept losing.  There were strategies that democrats could embrace that allowed them to win and he wanted to find them.

The Trump Card…

“Watch the documentary, VAXXED: From Cover-up to Catastrophe like I did and make up your own mind about vaccines and autism!  GREAT MOVIE!” – Donald J. Trump, June 10, 2017 to his 31.3 million Twitter followers.

By Kent Heckenlively, JD

 

It really shouldn’t be that difficult, should it?

Can you IMAGINE if President Trump actually sent out that tweet?

With that single action, President Trump would bypass the $5.4 billion dollars the pharmaceutical industry spends annually to fund, and control, the nightly news, their army of Washington lobbyists, and DESTROY the premise of the corrupt 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act which created the monstrosity known as “Vaccine Court.”

I know President Trump likes to win.  This would be a win for him.  In fact, the autism community has been winning so much, I’m starting to get a little tired.

First, there was the delicious Ian Lipkin-Mady Hornig law suit death match which revealed the unbelievably bad behavior of Ian Lipkin, like dropping his drawers in front of his ex-lover so she could examine a lesion on his ass.  Then when she expressed some discomfort, he told her that it was her job as medical director of the Center for Immunity and Infection to look at his hairy ass.  I CAN’T MAKE THIS STUFF UP!

REAL Health Care Reform – Cliff Notes Version..

Part 2 – Understanding What Trump Has To Deal With…

By Elissa Meininger – Health Policy Analyst

Folks, we here at Bolen Report are in the front lines of what we all know is a civil war. 

A legally-elected president is under siege 24/7 being accused of all manner of criminal activity with hints of mental illness thrown in.  Every day we see demonstrations in the streets and on our college campuses against anyone who speaks conservative values and most recently there were protesters in front of the FCC demanding that DrudgeReport and Alex Jones be banned from the internet.  Who knows.  We might be next.

If you think this constant assault on President Trump and the American values he is espousing is wrong, please contact your elected officials and let them know what you think and let them know you expect them to support Trump in his efforts to clean out the swamp even if they are Democrats…….

Trump’s Biggest Problem – How To End The Drug Industry’s Control Of The Media

 In regards censoring critical information about America’s most serious health crisis, at the recent Revolution For Truth Rally in Washington about the problems with vaccines, this is what Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., told rally attendees about media censorship:

“I talked to Roger Ailes, who I have know 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.”

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure this one out.  If Big Pharma uses the power of its advertising dollars to dictate what is and is not said about vaccines, it stands to reason that  it can dictate the content of the rest of the news as well.

The US is only one of two countries (New Zealand is the other) that allows advertizing of drugs directly to the public.  The justification is so that consumers can be “educated” in the proper use of these products.  Yeah.  Sure.  Who reads the 4 point type on the magazine page across from the glossy ad, or can understand the TV voiceover that is speaking in triple time telling you if you take this stuff, you’ll die.

The REAL reason drug ads are legal is so they can control the content of what goes out in print or on the airwaves including directing the propaganda slant on sitcoms, talk shows, late night comedy and drama shows.

I say drug ads  should go the way of tobacco and hard liquor ads.  The question is, do the DC swamp dwellers have the backbone to ban them.

Trump has committed a mortal sin against Big Pharma.  Eager to help Autism Speaks raise money for the cause by allowing them to use his beloved Mar-a-Largo for a fundraising event, he spoke publicly as far back as 2007 that he thought vaccines were the cause of autism and chided those who refused to consider that possibility.

To Big Pharma, the idea that as president, Trump could (and now is) putting the full weight of that office behind a complete investigation of the vaccine industry, is unthinkable.

By 2021, financial experts estimate the annual business to be worth $43.03 billion a year.  Based on what we already know, and what our colleague here at BolenReport, Kent Heckenlively, has already written about in his book Inoculated: How Science Lost Its Soul in Autism, the likelihood is that all the fraud, deliberate manipulation of scientific studies, destruction of evidence (government records), conspiracy to suppress critical information, not to mention providing false testimony, the vaccine industry will likely take a very big hit if not be destroyed altogether

By all the revelations already coming out, unreported by the press, some executives, scientists and government officials might even be subject to being tried for committing crimes against humanity, the subject of two articles here and here on BolenReport.

Thanks to this ongoing embargo on information, discussing anything that Trump is doing to clean up the swamp is nowhere to be found on Main Stream Media (MSM).

Trump Officially Ends “Political Correctness” As A Government Policy…

The media has also partnered with others who don’t want Trump to succeed by taking direction from social agitators aka Community Organizers.  In an earlier article, I wrote about the history of Political Correctness and explained how it was developed in the 1920s as a Marxist/Socialist tool to intimidate people into silence at the same time turning basic cultural norms of all kinds upside down.  In an internet website called  The Obamafile, a group of researchers provided a summary, with examples, of just how  bizarre some of these mind-manipulating “facts” are.

There, our Founding Fathers are deemed nothing more than “sexist, slave-owning, 18th century white men in wigs and breeches” presumably with nothing important to contribute to society.

Battle for the “Iron Throne” of Science at Columbia University…

Opinion by Kent Heckenlively, JD

I have come to the conclusion that many of my dear brothers and sisters in the autism community are suffering from “Stockholm Syndrome” in what has developed as the Ian Lipkin vs. Mady Hornig battle for the Iron Throne of Science at Columbia University.

“Stockholm Syndrome” is a condition in which hostages develop a psychological alliance with their captors.  Before you think I am being flippant or rude, I ask you to hear me out.

Lipkin is probably just as much of a sexist, controlling tyrant as Hornig paints him to be.  But the greater crimes are the ones in which both of them have participated.

I am a middle school science teacher.  If you walked the halls of my school you might see posters proclaiming the “Ten Pillars of Character”, of which the first is honesty.

Another poster might read, “Integrity is doing the right thing when NOBODY is watching.”  

Those are the values of my school.  Those are my values. And I believe those should be the values we demand of our scientists.  Are you still with me?  Have I said anything offensive, yet?

If in the course of my teaching I slammed a student’s head into a wall and caused permanent brain damage I would rightly be fired, prosecuted, and sent to jail.

Let’s cut to the chase…

By their actions, Ian Lipkin and Mady Hornig have allowed EXACTLY that to happen to millions of children in the United States and around the world. Pediatricians are still giving dangerous vaccines to children, the schools are still struggling under the weight of trying to educate vaccine-injured children, and every week we can look forward to news of some of these children dying from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, or wandering away from their caretakers and drowning in lakes and rivers, or from exposure.

All of this remains UNACKNOWLEDGED by our news media.

And yet there are those who want to take the side of Mady Hornig as an abused woman, who is BRAVELY trying to battle a bad man and scientist.

PLEASE!

I have absolutely no hesitation in telling you that I will gleefully pull up a chair with my bowl of hot buttered popcorn, and watch this spectacle unfold.

Hornig’s claims to date are ONLY that Lipkin is a bad man AND probably a FELON due to misuse of federal research funds, BUT NOT THAT HIS SCIENCE IS A LIE WHICH HAS DAMAGED MILLIONS OF CHILDREN.

It is common for me as a teacher to deal with students who tell each other to “Shut up!”  Yes, sometimes I’ll send them to the principal’s office and sometimes we’ll sit down and talk with their parents about proper behavior.  But never do I have to sit a student down and explain why it’s wrong to lie and cause harm to millions of people.

I know that every single student would give the correct answer to the question:  “It is okay to lie and harm millions of people if it allows you to keep your job at a prestigious university.  True or false?  ______________________.”

It really is pretty simple to me.  Tell the truth.

To me, Ian Lipkin and Mady Hornig have taken every one of you hostage by the lies they have told about vaccines.

They have taken you hostage when your doctors don’t believe you.  Because who have your doctors listened to?  The dynamic duo from Columbia University, aided and abetted by the pharmaceutical industry and the Centers for Disease Control.

Ian Lipkin and Mady Hornig have taken every one of you hostage when your friends don’t believe you.

Ian Lipkin and Mady Hornig have taken every one of you hostage when your family members don’t believe you.

Ian Lipkin and Mady Hornig have taken every one of you hostage when your marriages break up, when your bank accounts are bled dry as you try to heal your damaged child, or when you long for the day your child will have a conversation with you, or be able to use the bathroom on their own.

This has gone on since at least 2004, when they first looked into the question of mercury in vaccines and the development of autism.  That is thirteen years.

How many of you would like those thirteen years back, with your doctors, and your family and friends believing you?

Montana Congressman-Elect Greg Gianforte Gives Us a Lesson on How to Deal With the Obnoxious Liberal Media…

We Were All Supposed to Be Nice and Polite While They Spewed HATRED In our Faces…

Those Days Are OVER…

Opinion by “Deplorable” Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

In Presidential Election 2016 we the American people were subjected to the reality of Main Stream Media (MSM).  We saw what they offered, and almost en-masse, rejected them.  Despite their massive propaganda campaign, and it was ONLY that, we elected our own President Donald J. Trump.

What did “We the People” see?  The reality of what they are – a self-appointed elite with delusions of grandeur, and a sense of special privilege.  In their eyes the rules of society, and in fact, the laws of society, do not apply to them.  Virtually every one of them sees their role like each of them were, and are, one more Hillary or Bill Clinton entitled to the pleasures, and privileges, of the moment, including special trips, if they want, on the “Lolita Express.”

It was such fun to channel surf on the night of November 8th, 2016 just to watch the absolute SHOCK on the haughty MSM talking head’s faces, seeing their reaction to America’s rejection of their self-assigned status.

Then, of course, MSM, as spoiled children are accustomed to do, began their nightly caterwauling, in essence, laying on the floor in a restaurant, kicking their feet like an un-slapped progeny of an infrequent liberal coupling, irritating all of us trying to down some lunch so we can get back to work in a real job – in a REAL America.

We, as Americans are wont to do, remained somewhat tolerant of screamy/screechy bad-smelling liberal media’s behavior, letting them steam in their own juices, as it were, learning from our shunning, what their REAL place is in our society.

But, as MSM are accustomed to doing, they kept up their behavior, ignoring society’s conventions, rules and laws, for themselves, and became the aggressor, so to speak, trying to use the COVER of “Media” to affect, and effect, their liberal political stance in local community interests – as though they had some RIGHT to do that unchecked.

Then Came Montana…

Then came Montana, where, in one fell swoop, the rules all changed, and Americans made a decision to react to MSM’s bad behavior abruptly, succinctly, with a strong message.

In Bozeman, Montana, on the eve of a Special Election for the US Congress one self-deluded “punk-ass” from an out-of-the-country, known to be screwball media source, got body-slammed to the floor when he ignored an American’s rightful request for he, the media person, to follow normal, legitimate procedures for an interview.

About time.  In fact what I do not understand is why this punk-ass journalist was not arrested on the spot, and hauled off to a Montana jail where he could be stripped down, and de-loused with some strong chemicals and a fire hose.

Maybe next time…

Let’s Look at What Actually Happened…

The Study Which Will END Autism!

And probably Chronic Fatigue Syndrome ME/CFS as well…

I always tell my students that when a scientific concept is finally understood the answer should be simple, elegant, and yes, even beautiful in its own way.  That moment has NOW been reached in autism and the results published for the entire world to see.

I know there are FACTIONS in the autism community, as well as in the chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) community.  But it is time to put those differences aside and unite to support this research.  The FATE OF ALL OF US depends on joining together in common cause to end these epidemics.

By Kent Heckenlively, JD

At 6:33 a.m. on Friday, May 26, 2017 I received the following email from Dr. Robert Naviaux, Professor of Genetics, Biochemical Genetics and Metabolism, and co-director of The Mitochondrial and Metabolic Disease Center at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) School of Medicine:

Hi Kent,

The results of the suramin autism treatment clinical trial were published today in Annals of Clinical and Translational Neurology.  I’ve attached a pdf copy and a question and answer sheet that we prepared to help discuss some of the results.

I’m very grateful to you for helping us to get out the word.  The moon rock and card with the Dali Lama that you sent me in 2013 were an inspiration.  I still have them on my desk.

There will be more material posted on our website at: naviaux.ucsd.edu, later this day.  This will include a poem written by a teenage boy with ASD who was in the study.  UCSD will also be launching a website with extra content about the study later today.  I will let you know when the link goes live.

Thank you so much for all your help.

Sincerely, Bob.

As I always do with my science students, I want to start with the problem.  

Defining the problem is usually KEY to finding the answer.  One of Naviaux’s most important contributions to understanding these conditions is his analysis of something called the CELL DANGER RESPONSE (CDR).  I will let Dr. Naviaux speak about it in his own words.

CELL DANGER RESPONSE: The CDR is a natural and universal cellular response to any injury or stress.  Its purpose is to help protect the cell and to jump-start the healing process.  But sometimes the CDR gets stuck.  This prevents completion of the natural healing cycle and can permanently alter the way the cell responds to the world.  When this happens, cells behave as if they are still injured or in imminent danger, even though the original cause of the injury or threat has passed.  On a molecular level, the defended set points for homeostasis are altered.  This creates a pathological metabolic memory – an abnormal cellular response – that leads to chronic disease.  When this happens during early childhood development, it causes autism and many other chronic childhood disorders.  When it happens later in life, a persistent CDR can lead to immune exhaustion and it can lower the resistance to chronic infections.  When it swings in the other direction, the immune system takes on a hair trigger and it leads to inflammatory and autoimmune disorders.  In both cases, it increases the prevalence of chronic disease.

Tp put it in simple terms, when the cell thinks there is a danger in the body, it shuts down communication with other cells.  This affects development, as well as proper functioning of all your biological systems.  Got it?  It’s pretty simple.

I bet you can even figure out the answer. Find a medication that tells the cells that it’s safe to communicate.  

The same thought occurred to Dr. Naviaux.  And he found a medication that does exactly that, suramin.

SURAMIN:  Suramin . . . sends the cellular equivalent of the “all clear” or safety signal.  In this capacity, suramin and other antipurinergic drugs, are a kind of molecular armistice therapy (MAT), signaling the ceullar war is over, the danger has passed, and cells can return to “peacetime” jobs like neurodevelopment, growth and healing.

Some kind of chemical, toxin, or infection is LIKELY to be the cause of the cell danger response being activated.  But we do not even need to fight over WHAT might be the trigger, if we can fix it.  Let that be a conversation for another day.

Now that I’ve piqued your curiosity you probably want to know how it worked.  Again, I use Dr. Naviaux’s own words.

THE CLINICAL EFFECTS:  Suramin works by removing negative signals that block or slow natural child development.  It is more like removing the brakes then pressing the accelerator.  Accelerated catch-up development occurs in the first few weeks when the brakes are removed because the child is ready to develop, but was otherwise blocked by their illness.  This reminds me of giving a child who has an inborn error of metabolism a vitamin or nutrient that they can’t make, or taking away a toxin, the children begin to blossom.  Children with severe oral motor dyspraxia in the SAT-1 study started humming and singing nonsense tunes around the house in the first few days after suramin.  Like a baby learning to talk for the first time, they began making sounds with their mouth, lips, and tongue that they had never made before.  We had four non-verbal children in the study, two 6 year olds and the two 14 year olds.  The 6 and 14 year old who received suramin said their first sentence of their lives about 1 week after the single suramin infusion.  This did not happen in any of the children given placebo.

For those of us who have non-verbal children, it is difficult to fully describe the excitement I feel when I read this account.  

I have NEVER had a conversation with my 19 year old daughter.

But I KNOW there is a wonderful person inside who has so much to tell me.

I will perhaps break a confidence by telling you I have talked privately in the past to Dr. Naviaux about what he thinks might happen in the future.  

IF suramin works out as a treatment protocol, he thinks it might end up being something that is infused every 6-8 weeks until the results are sustained and the child has caught up to their peers in development.  For younger children, that might mean a year of infusions.  For those older, it might mean two years.  We genuinely do not know.  It was a small study, limited to five boys because of financial constraints, so this is something which needs to be studied in great detail.

But these are such exciting possibilities for rescuing our lost children.

Andrew Wakefield’s Accusers Ian Lipkin and Mady Hornig – Publicly “Exposed” and Humiliated…

Columbia Professor Says Boss Made Her Inspect His ButtNew York Post, May 20, 2017

“A Columbia University scientist claims her boss – and former lover – repeatedly dropped his drawers and demanded she diagnose a lesion on his butt.”

Associate Professor Mady Hornig says her boss at the university’s Mailman School of Public Health [Ian Lipkin] also demanded co-credit for her work; kicked her under the table at meetings to keep her from speaking; presented her work as his own, and kept her from getting tenure, Hornig claims in a Manhattan federal court lawsuit.”

By Kent Heckenlively, JD

Sometimes reality far outstrips the imagination of even the greatest fiction writer.  For those of you unfamiliar with the dynamic duo of Ian Lipkin and Mady Hornig, let me clue you in.

This is the team that went after Dr. Andrew Wakefield

and his claims of a connection between the MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) vaccine and autism with a vengeance.

They are also the same duo that went after Dr. Judy Mikovits and her findings

of a retrovirus being linked to the development of chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS).

Do I need to tell any of you that their investigations of both Wakefield and Mikovits were biased, dishonest, and corrupt?

Mady Hornig and Ian Lipkin “Hot for Research.”

And those are the nicest words I can think to use to describe their studies.

Got it? These are the two scumbag scientists that millions of sick people and their families have to thank for derailing the work of good scientists who were trying to alleviate human suffering.

I even have an entire chapter entitled “The Lipkin-Hornig Team” in my new book, INOCULATED: How Science Lost its Soul in Autism.

Real Health Care Reform – Cliff Notes Version…

Part 1 – Getting Real About Health Care Reform…..

 by Elissa Meininger – Health Policy Analyst

Folks, one of my big gripes about talking about health care reform is that nobody really knows much beyond their small area of interest.

These days, it pretty much boils down to “How much will I have to pay?” “I have a preexisting condition.  Will it still be covered?”  “Can I keep the doctors I like?”    Me, I don’t use the allopathic health care system because what they offer is of no help to me.  I go to the alternative.  It’s much cheaper, safer and more effective.

Almost nobody knows much about how the system got into such a costly, bureaucratic and ineffective mess.  For me, as an historian specializing on the politics of natural healing arts, I think it is very important for people to know what happened so we can see what Trump will have to do to fix it.

Just so you know….

Two landmarks related to how things are paid for are……

The New Deal – which introduced third party payment schemes that your employer buys for you and calls health “insurance”….

The Great Society – and the intrusion of government into deciding all aspects of what products and services you are allowed  to have and how much they’d cost.  As for who really runs the system – BIG PHARMA!

If you’ll hang in here with me,

I’d like to give you the Cliff Notes version of how we got from a free-market (read affordable), state-of-the-art medical system in Colonial America to the over-priced, chemical-dependent monopoly and rationed care system we now have.  Then I’d like to speculate as to what will happen when Trump’s ideas become a reality.

What Our Founding Fathers Had In Mind…

In Colonial Times, most people were treated at home and thanks to the efforts of Benjamin Franklin, the first hospital was built in Philadelphia to take care of the poor.  Historian Daniel Boorstin said that the mortality rate at this hospital was half the rate of any hospital in Europe.  Thomas Jefferson said that the natural health care we offered here in the states was superior to medicine in Europe.   Until after WWII, most hospitals were run by religious groups or by local communities.

Until the end of WWII, the American health care system was a free market affair where patients had complete control of who they did business with and how much they paid for services. 

Yes, plenty of chickens and various other goods and services often paid the bill.  Charities helped the poor.  In fact, until the turn of the 20th Century, there were no monopoly regulations to restrict who actually practiced medicine.  Most practices were botanical in nature and in this free market for health care, Osteopathy, Chiropractic, Eclectic Medicine, Thomsonian Medicine and other new, creative systems of healing emerged to meet market demand.

Allopathy, which is the kind the AMA doctors practice, was either avoided, or shunned altogether, by members of many religious sects such as Christian Science, Church of the Latter Day Saints, Church of the First Born, Seventh Day Adventists etc., in favor of prayer, diet and more natural means, as spelled out in the bible.

John Wesley, Founder of Methodism, published a medical book called Primitive Physick or An Easy and Natural Method of Curing Most Diseases and he and his parishioners, as an expression of their faith, provided medical care to the poor.

Allopaths were still stuck with bloodletting and use of toxic medications such as arsenic and strychnine.

A high dose of mercury was considered the magic bullet for everything.  All these treatments were miserable to endure, destroyed health and also often led to a premature death.  These treatments were based on a medical philosophy called humorism  that dated back to ancient Greece.

Homeopaths started coming to America in 1825 and presented the Allopathic community with particular difficulties.  Homeopaths were educated people who practiced a medical system totally alien to Allopathy.    Their success with epidemic diseases was one of several reasons they became a real challenge to members of the AMA.  Based on actual public death records of epidemics, it was obvious Allopaths hadn’t a clue how to nurse people back to health, much less help patients avoid illness in the first place.

Forced Schooling to Condition People to Accept Government Authority —

You might wonder why I’m suddenly talking about public schools in the middle of an article about health care.  Stay with me, folks.  You’ll see the connection in a minute.

In the early 1800s, Prussia and surrounding German states were going through big changes.  First, Prussia suffered a major defeat in the Napoleonic Wars that led to the idea they needed to raise a well-organized army.  To do that, they decided they needed to establish a compulsory school system to create obedient soldiers.

Since Prussia and much of Europe were already in the throes of experiencing the Industrial Age, the Prussian school model’s goals, as described by school historian, John Taylor Gatto, were to train: 1) Obedient soldiers to the army; 2) Obedient workers for mines, factories, and farms; 3) Well-subordinated civil servants, trained in their function; 4) Well-subordinated clerks for industry; 5) Citizens who thought alike on most issues; 6) National uniformity in thought, word, and deed.

These goals, of course, were opposite from the way Americans thought, and forcing public schooling on a population that was already extremely literate by their own initiative, was unnecessary, except for the fact the powers that be wanted to create a conformist society here in America.  Marx once said, The first battlefield is the rewriting of history.”   Forced schooling was established before the turn of the 20th Century here in America.

In the 1930s, Socialist John Dewey became honorary president of the National Education Association then proceeded to rewrite the goals of the NEA. As he said,  “You can’t make socialists out of individuals.  Children who know how to think for themsleves spoil the harmony of the collective society, which is coming, where everyone is interdependent.”

Teaching Civics was dropped from the national curricula.

Hmmm… no teaching about the history of how we were endowed by our Creator to be able to run our own lives and/or how government is supposed to protect our liberties and the Constitution clearly defines the limits of government power…..????

To help you keep your eye on the ball, here’s what John D. Rockefeller had to say, “I don’t want a nation of thinkers.  I want a nation of workers”   Rockefeller’s money was key to creating the American medical monopoly as you will learn more about below.

Is the Liberal Media Crossing the Line into Treason, Sedition, and the Promotion of Domestic Terrorism?

Should Homeland Security, and the US Military, be grabbing them off the streets, and jamming them into Guantanamo?

Opinion by “Deplorable” Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

We all know that the US media, called “Mainstream Media” takes its marching orders from Big Pharma.  That fact isn’t hidden.  The enemy of the people of the United States of America is Big Pharma.

Big Pharma is at war with the duly elected government of the United States and seeks to overthrow the Trump administration so as to KEEP control of the US Health Care system, focusing it, and all of the money generated, on drugs, drugs, and more drugs.

Mainstream Media kneels in Big Pharma’s presence, competing, as it were for favor – in terms of more Pharma advertising dollars.

We are not going to be able to revise US Health Care until we shut down Big Pharma’s influence.  Trump’s plan, the one where he revises the FDA, CDC, NIH, etc., by shutting down Big Pharma’s direct influence on the federal process – eliminating those agency’s usage as a tool to protect Big Pharma from smaller competitors, is going to change the entire US Health Care game.

But, as we see, Big Pharma, has its cash tentacles right into the media, calling the shots, as-it-were, every minute of every day, attacking our duly elected President, in every way possible, so as to shut down the government of the United States.

And THAT is Treason….

It is time that “We the People” did something about that…

Can we?  Oh yeah – we have the tools, and we should start using them right now.

Here is how it works…

“Three Drops Under Your Tongue and You’re Ready To Go…” Why I Supported Scott Gottlieb For FDA Head…

The Anti-Vax Community Had Reservations About Scott – But I Knew Something Others Did Not…

And now that he has been APPROVED by Congress I am going to tell you what that is…

Opinion by “Deplorable” Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

 

US Health Care cannot be changed by just shifting HOW it’s paid for. We need to change WHAT we are paying for.  A Big Pharma/vaccine  dominated system is NOT in our best interests.

Americans, under ObamaCare, are/were paying for a system that offered junk health care at a high price.  But, we are fixing THAT right now.

We are heading for a much better “Patient Centered system – and here at the BolenReport, we will tell you where it is going to end up.

To get there we have to remove Big Pharma’s influence over our “Administrative Structure” – period.  And that effort is turning out to be far easier than we thought.

You can hear the shrill screech/screaming from Big Pharma’s mainstream media toadies.

I, for one, want to turn up the heat.  Scott Gottlieb’s approval for FDA head did just that.  We are going to make Big Pharma into Little Pharma.

So, listen to this…

Scott Gottlieb is NOT Big Pharma’s friend.  The story below will explain why Scott is/was THE LAST PERSON Pharma should want as FDA head – and why the cutting-edge, and anti-vax community DEFINITELY WANTED him.  And now we have him in place.

For years, in my Crisis Management role, I attended cutting-edge health care conventions all over the United States.  I spoke at many.  During one of those experiences I ended up, at about 10:00PM, in a Seattle-area Hotel Bar with several Bio-Physicists, sharing our second pitcher of the local brewery’s Draft Beer.  The conversations were getting much better, freer, so to speak, when another guy (also a Bio-Physicist) drifted in trailing his suitcase.  He was a friend of the guy sitting across from me.

The new guy was offered a glass, but declined, saying he’d see us in the morning.  But before he left he asked his sitting friend “Hey, the other day in the lab.  How’d that come out?”

The sitting guy chuckled and said:  “Three drops under your tongue and you’re ready to go…”

Do I have your attention yet?

Most people have never heard a story like this about health care – but it is all very true – and a complete nightmare for Big Pharma.  And the FDA has been trying desperately, and not completely successfully, to keep the lid on this.

I told this story back on September 28th, 2005 on George Noory’s Coast-to-Coast radio show.  So many people got on my website the next few days, my server was overloaded and shut down.  I had close to nineteen thousand new subscribers sign up for my newsletter.  The story included here was probably the primary reason for all of the attention.

Greg Gutfeld – The World Needs Your Help!

Can You Be the Giant-Killer Who Brings Down the Pharma Colussus?

By Kent Heckenlively, J.D.

Greg, sometimes it takes a funny man to be the right kind of hero.

Think of all the action heroes we love from the movies, Iron Man, Indiana Jones, John McClain (Bruce Willis in the Die Hard movies), or even my personal favorite, Daredevil.

You’ve got the humor.  Now, do you have the kind of heart necessary for this fight?  As Bill Nye might say (before he got old and creepy) “Consider the following!”

This is what Robert Kennedy, Jr. said at the Revolution for Truth Rally on March 31, 2017 in Washington, D.C.

Kennedy said, “The press has been compromised, 5.4 billion dollars annually [from the pharmaceutical industry]. I talked to Roger Ailes, who I’ve known since I was seventeen years old. He was very sympathetic with this issue. He 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 would have to fire any of my hosts who 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.’ And if you turn on the evening news, you will see it’s just a vehicle for selling pharmaceutical ads. So the press is gone.” (Kennedy speech at the Revolution for Truth Rally, Washington D.C., March 31, 2017, www.youtube.com/watch?v=9KEoMNxxJRc, 31:40-31:30)

Greg, you know that’s not journalism.

That’s corruption.  That’s evil.  That’s God, the devil and the fate of humanity hanging in the balance.  Just the kind of fight for a guy like you.  Save the world, give us a funny one-liner, then head out to the bar for a beer.  You’ve seen it a thousand times in the movies.  You know what you’re supposed to do.

I say this as a friend. I have generally liked Fox News. I believe that no other network has been as fearless in taking on the liberal narrative of the mainstream media. I consider myself a libertarian. If it’s big, it’s probably bad. If force has to be used to get people to do something, it probably means their liberty is being taken away. Show me a big government, and I will tell you it’s probably corrupt. Show me a big company, and I will say the same. I strongly believe in the idea that eternal vigilance is the price of freedom.

If I have liked Fox News, I have LOVED your irreverent humor.

I must confess that when I watch your show, I often have fantasies of sitting with your fellow guests on the couch and when you get to me you say, “Kent Heckenlively, he’s so sharp that butcher knives live in fear of him!”

Like you, I don’t follow the pack. I was encouraged to read a statement from you recently in which you said, “I became a conservative by being around liberals and I became a libertarian by being around conservatives. You realize that there’s something distinctly in common between the two groups, the left and the right; the worst part of each of them is the moralizing.”

You will need such courage if you are to follow my advice.

But I think you are up to the challenge. You see, I think really funny people are usually the most courageous. Left to my own devices, and without an evil of unparalleled proportions bearing down on humanity, I’d probably strike most people as a lovable goof-ball like you.

However, given current conditions, I have no choice but to saddle up and go all Star-Lord like Chris Pratt in “Guardians of the Galaxy.” It’s just the way I’m wired.

You know Fox News is in a time of upheaval. Roger Ailes is gone and the Murdoch kids are trying to figure out what to do with you, as if you are an island of misfit toys. I don’t believe that the rule quoted by Robert Ailes to Kennedy is applicable to you.

Vaccines – Are They the New “Crimes Against Humanity?”

Part 2…

By Elissa Meininger – Health Policy Analyst

In Part 1 we saw how the science, and the people involved with developing vaccines, have been completely corrupted in order to support America’s mandatory vaccines policy – no matter what.

What we didn’t mention were two of the most influential medical associations that are primary promoters of mandatory vaccines for all children…no matter what!  They should most certainly be included in the IG Farben-like cabal that has been created and enforce compulsory vaccines in America.

“The American Medical Association (AMA), one of the largest and most influential associations of medical doctors in the country, today endorsed putting an end to religious exemptions to immunization requirements.

“Under new policy, the AMA will seek more stringent state immunization requirements to allow exemptions only for medical reasons,” the organization said in a press release.”

Similarly, the American Academy of Pediatrics, whose members make much of their living vaccinating children during their “well baby visits”, are in the front lines in the campaign to vaccinate all children in America.

These two groups, along with all the other organizations, civic groups included, not to mention members of the press who refuse to do their due diligence as watchdogs of our government, should all be considered part of the American IG Farben-like cabal of common interests.

After WWII, the people responsible for IG Farben’s group behavior were those who were put on trial at the Nazi War Crimes Trials at Nuremberg.  The hideous nature of their crimes against humanity resulted in the creation of the Nuremberg Code.

In short, the Nuremberg Code basically states that:

The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential. This means that the person involved should have legal capacity to give consent; should be so situated as to be able to exercise free power of choice, without the intervention of any element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, over-reaching, or other ulterior form of constraint or coercion; and should have sufficient knowledge and comprehension of the elements of the subject matter involved as to enable him to make an understanding and enlightened decision. This latter element requires that before the acceptance of an affirmative decision by the experimental subject there should be made known to him the nature, duration, and purpose of the experiment; the method and means by which it is to be conducted; all inconveniences and hazards reasonably to be expected; and the effects upon his health or person which may possibly come from his participation in the experiment. The duty and responsibility for ascertaining the quality of the consent rests upon each individual who initiates, directs or engages in the experiment. It is a personal duty and responsibility which may not be delegated to another with impunity.”

 Politics Make Strange Bedfellows…

For committed Anti-Trumpers, no matter what, this info is for you.

When you are active in politics, you quickly learn that the folks who are your bitterest enemies in some political fight this week may turn out to be your greatest allies in the next big fight.  The issue of compulsory vaccinations is one of those fights.

Donald Trump  announced during the campaign he believed that vaccines caused autism.  Even before he took office, he asked Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., to head up a commission to get to the bottom of the corrupt science at the CDC regarding vaccines.  He then appointed Tom Price, MD to be his Secretary of Health and Human Services.

Why is that important?  Because Dr. Price has been a longtime member of the Association of American Physicians & Surgeons.

This is their official position on mandatory vaccines…….

“USA Today” Says – Conventional Cancer Treatment Hype Gives False Hope…

We all know it is terribly expensive and DOES NOT work…

It is time to do something better…

By Frank Cousineau – President, Cancer Control Society

 

According to an article published April 17, 2017 in USA Today, titled “Cancer treatment hype gives false hope to many patients” conventional cancer treatment is really about the fact that “Of course there is plenty of money to be made.”

The article starts out: 

“After Michael Uvanni’s older brother, James, was diagnosed with a deadly form of skin cancer, it seemed as if everyone told the family what they wanted to hear: Have hope. You can beat this, and we are here to help.

The brothers met with doctors at a half-dozen of the country’s best hospitals, all with impressive credentials that inspired confidence.

Michael Uvanni was in awe when he visited the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston (shown in the photo above) , one of the world’s most respected cancer hospitals. It was like seeing the Grand Canyon, said Uvanni, 66, of Rome, N.Y. “You never get used to the size and scope.”

Even the MD Anderson logo on buses and buildings — with “Cancer” crossed out in red, above the words “Making cancer history” — made the family’s battle seem winnable.

“I thought they were going to save him,” said Uvanni, an interior designer.

Patients and families are bombarded with the news that the country is winning the war against cancer. The news media hypes research results to attract readers. Drug companies promise “a chance to live longer” to boost sales. Hospitals woo paying customers with ads that appeal to patients’ fears and hopes.

Even the American Cancer Society admits it’s all “Bullshit.”

They said in the article:

“I’m starting to hear more and more that we are better than I think we really are, said Dr. Otis Brawley, chief medical officer at the American Cancer Society. “We’re starting to believe our own bullshit.”

The consequences are real — and they can be deadly. Patients and their families have bought into treatments that either don’t work, cost a fortune or cause life-threatening side effects.

“We have a lot of patients who spend their families into bankruptcy getting a hyped therapy that (many) know is worthless,” Brawley said. Some choose a medicine that “has a lot of hype around it and unfortunately lose their chance for a cure.”

Although scientists have made important strides in recent years, and many early-stage cancers can now be cured, most of those with advanced cancer eventually die of their disease.

Cancer Treatment is probably the most important area of US healthcare we need to change – RIGHT NOW.

The AutismOne 2017 Conference is May 24-28!!!

Let’s get packing!

By Candyce Estave

It was just a few years ago that I started attending the AutismOne Conferences.

I was up to my ears in vaccine-induced autism. Our co-pays for my son’s therapies were high. I was dirt poor, often having to choose between bills and therapies the pediatricians or schools recommend for children like my son. I knew I needed more education on how my son’s diagnosis of autism affected him individually. I felt overwhelmed by the IEP process, fighting to get his needs met, and the emotional trauma of the grieving process I experienced after seeing my boy clearly regress into “autism.”

“Regressive autism.

Every parent who saw what I saw experienced the same turmoil: the future of their beloved child would not be one of celebrations.

We were told by “experts” that our boy might never talk, be toilet trained, or have a productive life.  Worse, we were virtually told that there was nothing we could do…that the prognosis was grim, lifelong, and forever. Our dreams were crushed. The kid we knew was gone. We were depressed to say the least. I was financially tapped and emotionally devastated.

Fortunately, and unlike the situation with so many other families, I have a supportive sibling. I called my brother because I knew he had sky miles. I asked if he could get me to the AutismOne Conference in Chicago so that I could learn how to better help my son. My brother so kindly arranged my flight, got me a hotel room, and helped with meals. He told me I needed to go and that I should arrange for childcare. I couldn’t afford registration, so I called AutismOne and was given a free pass.

I was gladly anticipating meeting Facebook friends there. Other educated parents are a fantastic resource for help. At the conference hotel, I settled into my room and headed across the courtyard to registration. I was like a fish out of water. I hadn’t been away from my children in years and felt socially inept. But it didn’t take long to realize that many parents were coming from the same place I was coming from.

Suddenly I was in a warm, friendly, place…

Trump’s “Deconstruction of the Administrative State”…

What it means for US Health Care…

By Elissa Meininger – Health Policy Analyst

 

If you liked Jonathan Emord’s two-minute video in my last article you are going to LOVE the twenty-four minute video we have below. Jonathan explains, in simple language, but with great detail, what Trump is up to in revising US Health Care.

But, before we go there…

If I could wave my magic wand…

I’d like to see that every kid in America was excited about learning history so after he or she grew up, the world would make more sense. 

As it is, we depend on the press to explain events to us. Unfortunately, right now, the mainstream press is in such a tizzy, the bilge that is spewed out is a public disgrace.

Our Founding Fathers believed a free press was essential to educating the public on matters of public concern, so we could be able to govern ourselves.   So why are we watching wall to wall malcontents screaming invectives, spewing out hate and making up the “facts” as they go?  The fact that some of the worst screamers are well-known reporters is appalling.

Right now, we are living through one of the greatest moments in American history. 

It is bigger than anything anyone could have imagined before Trump came onto the scene.  He is not operating like a regular politician so he is hard to understand in comparison to the permanent ruling class in DC  we’ve been living with for decades.

The swamp is a little cleaner today. And tomorrow is coming…

He is not influenced by popularity polls with an eye for the next election.  So, even if he gets panned in the press, he is unaffected because he said he’d clean up the swamp and a lot of people voted for him without really caring to know the details.

He said he wanted to create jobs, bring industry back to America, wanted to control the flow of illegal immigrants, and he wanted to make sure America was respected around the world again.

For those of us in health freedom, he very specifically stated he thought vaccines caused autism.

I recently ran across a 24-minute Youtube video called Deconstructing the Administrative State.  It is a rebroadcast of part of a Jeff Rense radio show interview with Constitutional and Administrative Law attorney Jonathan Emord, the fellow I’ve mentioned in earlier postings on BolenReport.

I urge you to take the time to watch it, as it covers an astounding description of what President Trump’s goals are to radically change how America operates.

He is, in fact, repealing what is called the “administrative state” where, we the people, are being ruled by a permanent and un-elected horde of bureaucrats at the behest of the big business interests who put them in charge.

The first two minutes of the Youtube video is of Steve Bannon, a special advisor to Trump, who explained Trump’s blueprint to the audience at CPAC, the conservative political organization that met earlier this year.  Then our guy Jonathan…

Jonathan Emord’s portion of the Youtube video is actually part of a radio interview Jeff Rense had with him recently that fills in the details of what Bannon’s presentation outlined.

How Trump is “Deconstructing the Administrative State,” and what it means for American Health Care…

Cancer Report:  Vaccines Cause Cancer – We Need to Get Prepared…

International Organization of Integrative Cancer Physicians (IOICP) – 15th Annual Conference…

By Frank Cousineau – President, Cancer Control Society

Note from Tim Bolen – I have been a huge critic of the mainstream Cancer treatment establishment for a very long time.  President Richard Nixon funded the “War on Cancer” in 1972, challenging mainstream to solve the cancer problem.  They promised to do that within eighteen months if given enough money.  In forty four years they have made ZERO progress.  American have found that there are alternatives to mainstream that work very well, are cheaper, and you, and/or your loved ones get to live.  And, you get to travel…

And, since we now know that mandatory vaccines cause cancer we had best get prepared…

What is this?  

Why is this important?  This (IOICP) – 15th Annual Conference is a premiere training program for physicians to learn how to implement the most up-to-date Integrative Protocols to improve the outcome for cancer patients.

This year, Annie Brandt, Founder of Best Answer for Cancer and a 16-year cancer survivor has organized another excellent physician-training program at the Town and Country Hotel in San Diego (Hotel Circle on I-8), California.  Please follow the links below for more information and to make your reservations.

https://bestanswerforcancer.org/2017-conference/

What is IOICP?  

It is the International Organization for Integrative Cancer & Chronic Disease Physicians.  IOICP is a group of physicians (MD’s, ND’s, RN’s, PhD’s and others) dedicated to providing the best patient-oriented protocols to their patients.  The organization supports its members with basic training, as well as advanced courses in the latest, most effective techniques consistent with the prime admonition of the Hippocratic Oath, Primum est nil nocereFirst do no harm.

The Cancer Lurking in Every Vaccine…

It’s been a rough few weeks for me...

Opinion by Karri Lewis AWAKE California

 

I just found out a third homeschooling mentor-friend of mine was recently diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer that has spread.

She’s had both breasts removed and now they are talking about removing her uterus…

So far, she seems to be following the allopathic model for cancer treatment.

Unfortunately, the success rates for surgery, chemotherapy and radiation are not all that promising.

One homeschooling mentor-friend lost her battle with cancer (she fought for 2 years with alternative and complementary therapies). She also had an especially aggressive form of breast cancer.

Even those in the cancer industry shun the conventional treatment…

FDA FOLLIES – Dental Amalgams…

The issue of the corruption in the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is so huge, this is the first of several articles I’m writing to expose the agency’s large contribution to “the swamp” in Washington.

By Elissa Meininger – Health Policy Analyst

 

The swamp Trump promises to clean up.   If you have even one “silver” filling in your teeth, this one’s for you.

So-called “silver” fillings are 52% mercury

Below is part of a 2011 article posted by  Charlie Brown, head of Consumers For Dental Choice , and mastermind behind years of legal action to force the FDA to follow the law.  It offers a bird’s eye view of how the FDA operates.

FDA’S Thirty Two Years of Concealing Amalgam’s  Mercury From You...


I. Captive of corporate America:  the US Food & Drug Administration

The United States Food and Drug Administration, once the world’s “gold standard” for food, drug, and device regulation, has evolved from industry regulator to industry captive. 

Political scientists are not surprised –  The evolution from tough regulator to passive regulator to industry captive is a pattern in Washington.  Unless an agency engages in a major system of reinvigoration, the spiral continues.  But FDA seems comfortable being the hand-maiden for industry; it has brought big bucks to the agency and lucrative jobs after time at FDA.

The big bucks are in FDA’s pay-to-play approval system.  Drug companies pay seven-figure amounts into FDA coffers to gain approval of their drugs. FDA staff knows that the cash means higher salaries and more perks in the agency budget.  The drug companies know the high fees prevent small competitors with good ideas from getting their products to market.  The coziness between FDA and major drug and device companies gets tighter, while innovative entrepreneurs are shut out and the public loses twice: good drugs aren’t being considered and controversial drugs are rubber-stamped.

Another bitter legacy of federal regulation is the “revolving door,” where insiders bounce between well-paid positions in industry to high-ranking FDA positions that regulate that industry.  Those in the political party out of power hold cushy jobs awaiting their return to power, at which point – in the game of Washington musical chairs – those in the party leaving power in turn take the high-paying jobs in industry.  The current FDA Commissioner, Margaret Hamburg, coming to FDA from Henry Schein, Inc., the largest seller of dental products and a major seller of medical products too, is a perfect example.  Hamburg was a high official in the Clinton Administration, so Schein’s CEO Stanley Bergman, an active Democrat, tapped Hamburg for the light work of being a board member during the Bush II years, paying her millions of dollars to sit in meetings and file occasional reports.  When Bergman’s party returned to power in 2009, he escorted Hamburg back through the revolving door – as Commissioner of the world’s most powerful food and drug regulator, FDA.

Heart Attack or Stroke?

It can happen to you, or right in front of you. What is the difference?  What do you do?…

By David A. Steenblock, MS, DO 

 

A heart attack occurs from blockage of the blood vessels that supply oxygen to the heart. This usually causes chest pain on one’s left side, and the left arm or neck. The pain is constant and may go from a dull ache to a more sharp pain in the left chest with exertion or stress. Nausea may be present as well.

If you are having CHEST PAIN , NAUSEA and/or SWEATING call 911 and go to the nearest emergency room for medical care!

A stroke happens when blood flow to the brain is impeded or blocked.

Sometimes these symptoms will go away after a few minutes or hours. When this happens it is likely you are having a Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) which means that a blocked blood vessel to your brain has opened up and the blood flow has been at least partially restored.

For years doctors have thought that this type of event did not cause damage to the brain though recent studies have demonstrated that it not only does, but can result in long term problems like memory loss. If these symptoms return in a few hours, days or even weeks, the original symptoms usually stick around and may signal a full blown stroke.

If you should have this type of seemingly temporary problem, then insist that your doctors do a complete brain blood vessel evaluation and brain MRI so the exact cause of the symptoms can be determined and either repaired or treated to prevent the progression of the TIA into a full blown stroke.

Call 911 if….

If you or someone your observe exhibits any of the signs of stroke. Do not delay because timely treatment is critical to survival and recovery. Be safe rather than sorry! CALL NOW!

Summon an ambulance…

If the symptoms pass quickly this may indicate a brief blockage of blood flow to the brain (called a transient ischemic attack or TIA) that is often a forerunner of stroke. Do not ignore this warning sign.

In situations in which a stroke is due to a blood clot, an enzyme treatment (TPA) must be initiated within the first 3-6 hours of the onset of symptoms. If your pulse is irregular and or you have been diagnosed with atrial fibrillation or other forms of irregular heartbeat, your chances of having a blood clot as the cause of a stroke is high.

If you have HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE and especially if you have not been taking your blood pressure pills and TIA or stroke symptoms develop, your chances of having a “BLEEDING” type of stroke is high and the enzyme drug TPA cannot be used.

Bleeding into the brain is more likely to cause serious problems and even death than the blood clot type, especially if one’s blood pressure is high and remains so. Most preventable strokes are due to people not taking prescribed blood pressure lowering drugs or lifestyle changes or failing to measure their blood pressure on a regular basis and missing unusual changes.

The FDA is Full of “NUTS”…

The FDA Says WALNUTS Are Illegal Drugs…

 By William “Bill” Faloon – Life Extension Foundation

Note from Tim Bolen – Bill originally wrote this article in 2011. We are re-publishing it for obvious reason.  Trump wants the FDA ripped to pieces, and this kind of  FDA “nuttyness” is one of the reasons why.  The FDA is responsible for regulating 35% of the US economy.  We cannot fix US health care without fixing the FDA.  It is far worse corrupt then the CDC…

 

Life Extension® has published 57 articles that describe the health benefits of walnuts.

Some of this same scientific data was featured on the website of Diamond Foods, Inc., a distributor of packaged walnuts.

In 2010 the FDA determined that walnuts sold by Diamond Foods cannot be legally marketed because the walnuts “are not generally recognized as safe and effective” for the medical conditions referenced on Diamond Foods’s website.

According to the FDA, these walnuts were classified as “drugs” and the “unauthorized health claims” cause them to become “misbranded,” thus subjecting them to government “seizure or injunction.”

Diamond Foods capitulated and removed statements about the health benefits of walnuts from its website.

Let’s take a look at the science supporting the consumption of walnuts to see what the FDA censored…and what you can do to stop it in the future!

Eating Walnuts Cuts Heart Disease Risk

Ingesting nuts used to be considered unhealthy because of their high fat content. This misconception has changed over the past 18 years as human studies have revealed sharply reduced incidence of heart disease in those who consume walnuts.

Unlike some nuts, walnuts provide a unique blend of polyunsaturated fatty acids (including omega-3s), along with nutrients like gamma-tocopherol that have demonstrated heart health benefits.

The March 4, 1993, issue of the New England Journal of Medicine published the first clinical study showing significant reductions in dangerous LDL and improvement in the lipoprotein profile in response to moderate consumption of walnuts.  Later studies revealed that walnuts improve endothelial function in ways that are independent of cholesterol reduction.

One study published by the American Heart Association journal Circulation on April 6, 2004, showed a 64% improvement in a measurement of endothelial function when walnuts were substituted for other fats in a Mediterranean diet.

The US National Library of Medicine database contains no fewer than 35 peer-reviewed published papers supporting a claim that ingesting walnuts improves vascular health and may reduce heart attack risk.As most Life Extension members are aware, the underlying cause of atherosclerosis is progressive endothelial dysfunction.  Walnuts contain a variety of nutrients including arginine, polyphenols, and omega-3s that support the inner arterial lining and guard against abnormal platelet aggregation.  These favorable biological effects explain why walnut consumption confers protection against coronary artery disease.

FDA Ignores the Science

The federal agency responsible for protecting the health of the American public views this differently.

On our website, we reprint the FDA’s entire warning letter to Diamond Foods. Nowhere in this bureaucratic albatross is there any discussion of the science cited by Diamond Foods to support their health claims.

Instead, the FDA’s language resembles that of an out-of-control police state where tyranny reins over rationality. To enable you to recognize the absurdity of all of this, I excerpted a few paragraphs from the FDA’s warning letter to Diamond Foods starting below.

Excerpt from FDA Letter

“Based on our review, we have concluded that your walnut products are in violation of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the Act) and the applicable regulations in Title 21, Code of Federal Regulations (21 CFR).

“Based on claims made on your firm’s website, we have determined that your walnut products are promoted for conditions that cause them to be drugs because these products are intended for use in the prevention, mitigation, and treatment of disease.

“Because of these intended uses, your walnut products are drugs within the meaning of section 201 (g)(1)(B) of the Act [21 U.S.C. § 321(g)(B)]. Your walnut products are also new drugs under section 201(p) of the Act [21 U.S.C. § 321(p)] because they are not generally recognized as safe and effective for the above referenced conditions. Therefore, under section 505(a) of the Act [21 U.S.C. § 355(a)], they may not be legally marketed with the above claims in the United States without an approved new drug application.

“Additionally, your walnut products are offered for conditions that are not amenable to self-diagnosis and treatment by individuals who are not medical practitioners; therefore, adequate directions for use cannot be written so that a layperson can use these drugs safely for their intended purposes. Thus, your walnut products are also misbranded under section 502(f)(1) of the Act, in that the labeling for these drugs fails to bear adequate directions for use [21 U.S.C. § 352(f)(1)].”

This verbiage makes it clear that the FDA does not even consider the underlying science when censoring truthful, non-misleading health claims. The chilling effect on the ability of consumers to discover lifesaving medical information is a wake-up call for all who recognize the ramifications of this latest act of FDA malfeasance.
The number of people logging on to the website of Diamond Foods was miniscule. I suspect that before the FDA took this draconian action, hardly anyone even knew this website existed.

What the FDA Allows You to Hear

What the public hears loud and clear, however, are endless advertisements for artery-clogging junk foods. Fast food chains relentlessly promote their 99-cent double-cheese burger as being bigger than their rivals. These advertisements induce many consumers to salivate for these toxic calories that are a contributing cause of coronary artery disease. Yet the FDA does not utter a peep in suggesting that their advertising be curtailed.

On the contrary, the FDA has issued waves of warning letters to companies making foods (pomegranate juice, green tea, and walnuts) that protect against atherosclerosis.  The FDA is blatantly demanding that these companies stop informing the public about the scientifically validated health benefits these foods provide.

The FDA obviously does not want the public to discover that they can reduce their risk of age-related disease by consuming healthy foods. They prefer consumers only learn about mass-marketed garbage foods that shorten life span by increasing degenerative disease risk.

FDA Allows Potato Chips to Be Advertised as “Heart Healthy”

Frito-Lay® is a subsidiary of the PepsiCo, Inc., makers of Pepsi-Cola. Frito-Lay® sells $12 billion a year of products that include:

Lays® Potato Chips,  Doritos®, Tostitos®, Cheetos®, andFritos®

You might not associate these mostly-fried snack foods as being good for you, but the FDA has no problem allowing the Frito-Lay® website to state the following:

“Frito-Lay® snacks start with real farm-grown ingredients. You might be surprised at how much good stuff goes into your favorite snack. Good stuff like potatoes, which naturally contain vitamin C and essential minerals. Or corn, one of the world’s most popular grains, packed with thiamin, vitamin B6, and phosphorous—all necessary for healthy bones, teeth, nerves and muscles.

“And it’s not just the obvious ingredients. Our all-natural sunflower, corn and soybean oils contain good polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats, which help lower total and LDL ‘bad’ cholesterol and maintain HDL ‘good’ cholesterol levels, which can support a healthy heart. Even salt, when eaten in moderation as part of a balanced diet, is essential for the body.”

Wow! Based on what Frito-Lay® is allowed to state, it sounds like we should be living on these snacks. Who would want to ingest walnuts, pomegranate, or green tea (which the FDA is attacking) when these fat calorie-laden, mostly-fried carbohydrates are so widely available?

According to the Frito Lay® website, Lays® potato chips are “heart healthy” because the level of saturated fat was reduced and replaced with sunflower oil.  Scientific studies do show that when a polyunsaturated fat (like sunflower oil) is substituted for saturated fat, favorable changes in blood cholesterol occur.

Fatally omitted from the Frito-Lay® website is the fact that sunflower oil supplies lots of omega-6 fats, but noomega-3s.  The American diet already contains too many omega-6 fats and woefully inadequate omega-3s.

Excess omega-6 fats in the diet in the absence of adequate omega-3s produce devastating effects, including the production of pro-inflammatory compounds that contribute to virtually every age-related disease, including atherosclerosis.

For the FDA to allow Frito-Lay® to pretend there are heart benefits to ingesting their unhealthy snack products, while censoring the ability of walnut companies to make scientifically substantiated claims, is tantamount to treason against the health of the American public.

Don’t Forget the Acrylamides

When carbohydrate foods are cooked at high temperature (as occurs when potatoes are fried in sunflower oil to make potato chips), a toxic compound called acrylamide is formed.

According to the National Cancer Institute,“acrylamide is considered to be a mutagen and a probable human carcinogen, based mainly on studies in laboratory animals. Scientists do not yet know with any certainty whether the levels of acrylamide typically found in some foods pose a health risk for humans.”

In response to these kinds of concerns, the FDA funded a massive study to ascertain the acrylamide content of various foods. The FDA found that potato chips and other fried carbohydrate foods were especially high in acrylamides.

The FDA, however, has not stopped companies selling high acrylamide–containing fried carbohydrates from promoting these foods as “healthy.”

Pharmaceutical Companies Benefit From FDA’s Misdeeds

As the aging population develops coronary atherosclerosis, pharmaceutical companies stand to reap tens of billions of dollars each year in profits. An obstacle standing in their way is scientific evidence showing that a healthy diet can prevent heart disease from developing in many people.

It is thus in the economic interests of pharmaceutical giants that the FDA forcibly censor the ability of companies making heart healthy foods to inform the public of the underlying science. The fewer consumers who know the facts about walnuts, pomegranate, and green tea, the greater the demand will be for expensive cardiac drugs, stents, and coronary bypass procedures.

Once again, the FDA overtly functions to enrich Big Pharma, while the public shoulders the financial burden of today’s health care cost crisis.

In this particular case, however, processed food companies also stand to profit from the FDA’s attacks on healthy foods as competition from walnut growers is stifled.

FDA/FTC Wants More Control Over What You Are Allowed to Learn

The FDA and FTC (Federal Trade Commission) are proposing new regulations that will stifle the ability of natural food companies to disseminate scientific research findings.

One proposal being discussed within the FTC would require that supplement companies conduct studies analogous to what the FDA requires to approve new drugs. In a perfect world, Life Extension would agree with some of the FTC’s objectives. As far as we are concerned, the more scientific research to validate a health claim, the better.

The reality is that natural foods do not carry high prescription drug price markups, so it would be economically impossible to conduct the same kinds of voluminous clinical studies as pharmaceutical companies do. As readers of this column know, many of the clinical studies the FDA relies on to approve new drugs are fraudulent to begin with. So even if it were feasible to conduct more clinical research on foods and supplements, that still does not guarantee the precise accuracy the FTC is seeking.

If these agency proposals are enacted, consumers will be barred from learning about new ways to protect their health until a food or nutrient meets stringent new requirements. A look at the warning letter the FDA sent to Diamond Foods is a frightening example of how scientific information can be harshly censored by unelected bureaucrats.

If anyone still thinks that federal agencies like the FDA protect the public, this proclamation that healthy foods are illegal drugs exposes the government’s sordid charade.

CHILLING EFFECT ON INNOVATION

Headquartered in Stockton, California, Diamond Foods is a processor and marketer of nuts, with distribution in over 80% of US supermarkets. Most of Diamond’s 1,700 walnut growers are family farmers with orchards in the heartland of California’s Central Valley. Their association with Diamond guarantees a market for their crops and provides the company with high-quality walnuts.

In response to independent scientific studies validating the health benefits of walnuts, Diamond Foods made financial investments to educate the public and supply them with walnuts. With one misguided letter issued by the FDA, all of Diamond Foods’s good work was undone.

This kind of bureaucratic tyranny sends a strong signal to the food industry not to innovate in a way that informs the public about foods that protect against disease. While consumers increasingly reach for healthier dietary choices, the federal government wants to deny food companies the ability to convey findings from scientific studies about their products.

Companies That Sell Healthy Foods Try to Fight Back

The combined sales of the companies attacked by the FDA are only a fraction of those of food giant Frito-Lay®. Yet some of these companies are fighting back against the FDA’s absurd position that it is illegal to disseminate scientific research showing the favorable effects these foods produce in the body. The makers of pomegranate juice, for example, have sued the FTC for censoring their First Amendment right to communicate scientific information to the public.

As a consumer, you should be outraged that disease-promoting foods are protected by the federal government, while nutritious foods are censored. There is no scientific rationale for the FDA to do this. On the contrary, the dangerous foods ubiquitously advertised in the media are replacing cigarettes as the leading killers in modern society.

The federal government is heavily lobbied by companies selling processed foods. As Life Extension revealed long ago, an insidious activity of lobbyists is to incite federal agencies and prosecutors to eliminate free competition in the marketplace.

The simple fact is that walnuts are healthy to eat, while carbohydrates fried in fat are not. The FDA permits companies selling disease-promoting foods to deceive the public, while it suppresses the dissemination of peer-reviewed scientific information about healthy foods.
