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.

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”…

How Do You Trap A Quackbuster?

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?

The Mercury-Free Dentistry Movement…  Saving North America…

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

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

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…

State of Wisconsin Mauling Quackbusters…

Things are not going well for the quackpot menace.

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..

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…

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.

Quackbuster Removed From California State Job…

A large slice of the United States population relies on Medicare, and medical insurance, to provide them with health care.. That’s a problem – a big one… Because, if you’re unfortunate enough to have to rely on Medicare – you’re relying on practices and procedures FIFTEEN YEARS OUT OF DATE. In the case of Medical Insurance – probably TEN YEARS OUT OF DATE.

Who wants that?

Quackbusters Massively Crushed in California Court…

This story is a belly laugh – unless, of course you’re a quackbuster…  Then, maybe it’s not so funny.

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

December 12th, 2003 was the day when a Rancho Cucamonga, California, jury of twelve delivered their verdict in a trial called Hendricksen vs. Metabolife.  The Judge was Jeffrey King, who was conducting his last trial before he was appointed to the California Appeals Court bench.

The trial had taken six weeks –  30 full days of trial.  In the end, it was no contest.  The jury voted in favor of the defendant, Metabolife.

On the plaintiff’s side was the quackbuster’s favorite attorney Christopher Grell from Oakland, California.  On the defendant’s side were competent, thoughtful, attorneys with social conscience, who cared about their clients and the people of California.

Tommy Thompson sides with “Health Freedom” on MAJOR issue…

I’ve got the BIGGEST story in North American Health Freedom, EVER.  Here it is.

The conventional medicine stranglehold on health care has been broken – period.  It was done in Health & Human Services Director Tommy Thompson’s office on January 16th, 2003 when Thompson SIGNED the approvals to use a new billing code system called ABC Codes in HIPAA transactions.

I told you the Bush administration was on the side of “health” before.  Some of you doubted.  Here’s another example…

New England Journal of Medicine Hammers Chemo, Applauds Alternative Cancer Therapy…

Times are a-changin’ in the US Health community.  Who would have believed that the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine would APPLAUD an Alternative Cancer Therapy, and in the same article, BLAST chemotherapy, as worthless.

Bush Administration Embraces “Health”…

The whole premise of the “quackbuster” movement has been destroyed by the Bush Administration.  It’s over for Stephen Barrett and company.

Below is a press release from our friend in Washington, attorney and health activist, Jonathan Emord.  It is self-explanatory.  The decision described is far reaching.  It means, simply, that in the war between Health and Medicine in the US, the Bush Administration has sided with “Health.”

Hell Burns a Little Brighter This Week…

Self-styled quackbuster, and anti-health manipulator, Victor Herbert died of Cancer November 19th, 2002.  Herbert, described by many in the Health Freedom Movement as “a raving maniac” hasn’t been seen much in the last few years.  Herbert had obtained notoriety among the quackbuster rank and file for his literal SCREAMING attacks, in public, against anything, and anybody, engaged in Alternative Medicine.

The Public Humiliation of One of Barrett’s Parrotts – by a Federal Judge…

Quackbuster propagandist, failed MD Stephen Barrett, lost his very first court case suing one of his critics in US Federal court last week.  It was a belly laugh.  Barrett, who sues easily those disagreeing with his opinions vouchsafed on his ludicrous website www.quackwatch.com, has never had to, actually, go to trial before.  Finally, when he did, he got literally thrashed.  This was the case where the tire met the road.
