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.

There’s No Free Lunch and There is No Such Thing as Free Healthcare…

California’s Proposed “Single-Payer” Health Care System…

Opinion by Karri Lewis AWAKE California

I guess I’m not surprised that in this ultra-busy American society, people are so eager to get instant gratification when it comes to everything.

… And in their Minds, Why should their Health Care be ANY Different?

Our Smart Phones give us everything we need at our fingertips. People can contact each other at lightening speed, instead of having to wait for a return phone call or face to face meeting.

To many liberal democrats, “Single Payer” Healthcare seems like the instant gratification and easy solution that everyone craves and demands these days for “fast-food-type” and “one-size-fits-all” Health Care.

…as if Pharmaceutical Healthcare can be consolidated to be Instant, Omnipotent and Cheap…

This is the same crowd that believes in, “a pill for every ill” and the dubious Big Pharma marketing claim that a pill or a chemical injection is “the cure” for every sickness or ill known to man.

Instead of preventative programs; like eating well (and I’m NOT talking about the S.A.D. American Diet), exercise and emotional well-being, the Pharmaceutical companies have taken it upon themselves to dictate HOW diseases are allowed to be “treated.

Treated not Cured…

I use the word “treated” and NOT “cured,” intentionally.

Read this article and you can see how Big Pharma, along with the FDA, limit and sometimes ban inexpensive cures, in favor of dangerous, but profitable Pharmaceutical pills and concoctions.

“Single-Payer” healthcare (SB 562 The Healthy California Act) was introduced February 17, 2017 by California Senator Ricardo Lara (Bell Gardens) and is being heavily sponsored by the California Nurses Association.

Why would the California Nurses Association push so hard for single-payer?

Well I’m glad you asked.

According to Wikipedia;

RoseAnn DeMoro

RoseAnn DeMoro is the executive director of National Nurses United and of the California Nurses Association/National Nurses Organizing Committee.

DeMoro also serves as national vice president and executive board member of the AFL-CIO.[1]

And we hit pay dirt… Both National Nurses United and the AFL-CIO are huge National Left-Leaning Trade Unions.

On Wikipedia, National Nurses United admits their leftist ideals:

“National health care reform

CNA/NNOC has drawn national attention for campaigns on behalf of patients denied medical treatment recommended by their physicians.

The CNA/NNOC is a primary national organizational advocate of the United States National Health Care Act (HR 676). The bill would establish a single-payer national public health care insurance plan, essentially an improved equal-treatment Medicare for all Americans.

On June 19, 2008, CNA/NNOC joined with other health care, labor, and community activists, and patients in sponsoring a day of protest against the insurance industry in 19 cities across the U.S. calling for enactment of HR 676.”

Did you get that?

One-Size-Fits-All, Drive-through Medicare for all Americans, whether you want it or not…

Checkout the Political Activities of the AFL-CIO:

“The AFL–CIO was a major component of the New Deal Coalition that dominated politics into the mid-1960s.[8] Although it has lost membership, finances, and political clout since 1970, it remains a major player on the liberal side of national politics, with a great deal of activity in lobbying, grassroots organizing, coordinating with other liberal organizations, fund-raising, and recruiting and supporting candidates around the country.[9]

In recent years the AFL–CIO has concentrated its political efforts on lobbying in Washington and the state capitals, and on “GOTV” (get-out-the-vote) campaigns in major elections. For example, in the 2010 midterm elections, it sent 28.6 million pieces of mail. Members received a “slate card” with a list of union endorsements matched to the member’s congressional district, along with a “personalized” letter from President Trumka emphasizing the importance of voting. In addition, 100,000 volunteers went door-to-door to promote endorsed candidates to 13 million union voters in 32 states.[10][11]

The AFL–CIO gave $6,123,437 to super PACs in 2012, including $5.95 million to the AFL–CIO’s own super PAC.[12]

In June 2016, it was reported that the AFL–CIO planned to endorse Hillary Clinton in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.[13]

In a CNN web article from March, details emerge from the globalist-progressive explanation for the targeting of California for single-payer healthcare:

“State Sen. Ricardo Lara, who co-authored and introduced the California bill in February, described it as a local necessity with the potential for creating a road map for other states. Hillary Clinton’s defeat last year has accelerated the process, he added.

There’s no doubt that Trump’s election and what Republicans are doing to dismantle health care has really given us an opportunity to have an honest dialogue about how we get to health for all,” Lara said. “I don’t think we would have had the same opportunity if Clinton would have won. Then again, we also wouldn’t be in a place where we’re going to lose billions of (Medicaid) dollars for California.”

Lara views the health care fight as one piece of a broader play to turn back the Trump agenda — first with grassroots resistance, then by actively shaping more attractive and inclusive policy.

People in my district are genuinely scared — scared that they are going to lose their health care, scared that their mom or dad might be deported,” he said. “We have transgender children who are scared now about who they are and questioning that. Democrats in general, now, it’s time for us not only to present alternatives, but be unequivocal and unapologetic about who we are. If we don’t do that now, when? This is a moment that will define us as a party and we need to fight.”

Makes Sense Doesn’t it?

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…

Communist California Taking Steps to Own You and Your Child From Cradle to Grave…

Opinion by Karri Lewis AWAKE California

At California Senator Richard Pan’s most recent Town Hall Meeting regarding Senate Bill 18, the Children’s Bill of Rights, many parents claimed that they were completely shut out of these Town Hall Meetings.

These so-called Town Hall Meetings are supposed to be open to all members of the public.

Parents allege that they were prevented from speaking, while many seemingly paid proponents of the bill were invited to speak, and often past their allotted amount of time.

In addition, the people that spoke in support of the bill, had presumed financial incentives and ties that would directly benefit themselves and state agencies by the passage of SB18.

Sounds like SB277 deja vu all over again…

Conflicts of Interest…

People who made negative comments on an autism post on Senator Richard Pan’s facebook page were allegedly moved to the overfill room and prevented from speaking at the “Town Hall Meeting.”

When one parent, emboldened by not being allowed to speak, decided to stand up and speak anyway at the end of the meeting, the lights were shut off.

People began chanting their opposition to Senate Bill 18 and the stealing of parental rights.

The lights continued to stay turned off, as people chanted and stumbled through the dark.

I sure hope that Senator Pan didn’t cause anyone to be injured by this reckless and irrational behavior.

The Fight to Restore America – What We Have to Make Happen…

It Is All Fixable… So Let’s Make a List… 

Opinion by “Deplorable” Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

 

In early 2016 the United States of America was, most definitely, in decline.

Unfortunately “we the people” let the situation get very bad before we said, on Election Day 2016, “enough is enough,” and stopped the globalist destruction train in it’s tracks.

Americans with common sense went to the polls and surprised a weary world beaten down by globalists, woke up a reaction, and proceeded to change the direction not just of America the Nation, but of Planet Earth.

But, Let’s Be Specific About What Needs to be addressed…

Below are sixteen problems created and maintained by liberal Democrats for the express purpose of damaging and destroying America.  We need to fix them, and we can.

(1)  America has lost 60,000 factories since President Bill Clinton organized, and signed into effect, the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).  If an average 1,000 people had jobs at each of those factories we lost sixty million (60,000,000) jobs.

We need to reopen, or replace, EVERY ONE of these.  And add more.

(2)  President Bill Clinton, in 1998, inserted an addition into US legislation, making Student Loans non-dischargable under bankruptcy.  There are NO JOBS for most of these people and the interest on the loans builds.  These loans can NEVER be paid off, leaving an entire generation of educated Americans dodging bank creditors, and having their fast-food employment wages garnisheed.

As Martin Armstrong says: “Clinton sneaked in the 1998 HEA two specific changes regarding the collection of student loans that is a brewing part of the Sovereign Debt Crisis today for students cannot discharge student loans in bankruptcy and 65% cannot find a job in what they paid for.”

Clinton created a hopelessness in an entire generation of Americans.  Overall income is down. Marriages are way down.

There are several ways to fix this…

A Call To Action! Our Veterans Need Us!

By: Elissa Meininger – Health Policy Analyst

“America’s veterans deserve the very best health care because they’ve earned it.”  Jim Ramstad, U.S. Congressman

My husband died eight years ago and I took the opportunity to go on a journey of self-discovery that, for a time, led me to Austin, Texas, and then back home to Oklahoma City.

Within days of returning home, I learned that an old political buddy, Bill Duncan, was in town, doing something interesting.   So who is Bill Duncan, you ask? He’s the fellow my Fifth District US Congressman, Ernest Istook, hired in 1995 to clean up the medical system.

Clean Up?

At the time, I served as head of Ross Perot’s Reform Party Health Committee so this gave me a good reason to pay attention to what was going on with Bill.  Reformers were in the business of finding ways to clean up government. A third of Bill’s job was to make sure the new Office of Complementary and Alternative Medicine at the National Institutes of Health wouldn’t get screwed up.

When the NIH Director attacked it, Bill created the legislation, passed by Senator Tom Harkin, that created the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM). It’s very existence was as welcome as ants at a picnic because our American medical system is based on using drugs, surgery and other high tech (read expensive) modes of treating illness and injury.

Allopathy?  What’s THAT?

Technically, the medical philosophy that our medical establishment practices is called “allopathy”.  Consequently, the CAM department had many enemies, and still does. As an economist by training, Bill’s overall assignment was to make the U.S. healthcare system more effective, more efficient, and less expensive. His doctorate is in political science, economics, and public law, but he also has an MBA from Boston University.

In his program, which he took in Germany, Harvard professors came to Germany and taught the program from Harvard’s books.  This gave him a great basis for understanding the mandate from Rep. Istook. This included reducing regulatory burdens, increasing market availability of affordable health insurance, and driving new and effective treatments and technologies, including ones with no patent, into use.

The fight over proper health care in the US has been around for a VERY long time…

How Much Longer Are We Going to Have to Put Up With Liberal Democrats’ Defecations?

Donald Trump promised to “Drain the Swamp.”  That job is massive, and will continue to be so for some time  We all need to help him.

The best way to start to help is for “We the People” to understand the problem as a whole.  Let’s outline it.

Opinion by “Deplorable” Consumer Advocate” Tim Bolen

 

Liberal Democrats are all about globalism and the completion of Agenda 21.  When you understand, and accept that fact, everything becomes clear.  Now we can defeat their agenda. 

By electing Donald Trump to the presidency and removing these people from over a thousand State and federal elected offices we have made a good start.  But, is just that – a good start.

From Agenda 21’s own leaders comes this:

“Individual rights will have to take a back seat to the collective.” Harvey Ruvin, Vice Chairman, ICLEI. The Wildlands Project

“We must make this place an insecure and inhospitable place for Capitalists and their projects – we must reclaim the roads and plowed lands, halt dam construction, tear down existing dams, free shackled rivers and return to wilderness millions of tens of millions of acres or presently settled land.” Dave Foreman, Earth First.

What is not sustainable?  Ski runs, grazing of livestock, plowing of soil, building fences, industry, single family homes, paves and tarred roads, logging activities, dams and reservoirs, power line construction, and economic systems that fail to set proper value on the environment.” UN’s Biodiversity Assessment Report.

Hide Agenda 21’s UN roots from the people –  “Participating in a UN advocated planning process would very likely bring out many of the conspiracy- fixated groups and individuals in our society… This segment of our society who fear ‘one-world government’ and a UN invasion of the United States through which our individual freedom would be stripped away would actively work to defeat any elected official who joined ‘the conspiracy’ by undertaking LA21. So we call our process something else, such as comprehensive planning, growth management or smart growth.” J. Gary Lawrence, advisor to President Clinton’s Council on Sustainable Development.

So, let’s go to the next step.

(1)  Let’s just accept that Liberal Democrats were heading America for a global collective under the auspices of “Agenda 21” and deal with it.  Remember two things:  (a)  that these people originally bragged that they were going to reduce the population of Planet Earth from nine billion to 500 million by the year 2021 – now moved to 2030, and (b)  they needed to reduce the American Standard of Living down to a third world country level.

I’m not making any of this up.  Everything I have said, or will say, is discoverable on Agenda 21 information platforms.

According to these Agenda 21 nutbags, 94.5 percent of Earth’s population was/is to be killed, by one means or another (vaccines?).  Using that formula the US population was/is to be reduced from 325,796,862 to 17,918,827.  Which means that 307,878,035 Americans need to be killed, and our bodies disposed of, by 2030, by some means, so that the Elite can drive their Range Rovers from Yosemite to the Grand Canyon without having to drive around smelly dead bodies or funeral cairns.

Crazy as it sounds, EVERYTHING they do, and have done, is towards that objective.

Trump Bashing – Hollywood’s Newest Version of the “Casting Couch…”

Don’t for a minute think that everyone in Hollywood, or on network television, SUDDENLY  became a “Trump Hater.”  

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

And Big Pharma is behind it.

Whoever Makes Your Medical Decisions Owns You…

The single most important issue in HEALTH CARE REFORM today is NOT how the bill is paid but WHAT WE ARE BUYING.

Opinion By Elissa Meininger – Health Policy Analyst

 

US Health Care Reform?…

In that regard, the Number One, Numero Uno, #1 issue is vaccines.

Unless you have been living in a cave, you must know that there is a “battle royale” going on about how vaccines are the cause of autism, and more.

You will notice I didn’t say “IF.”

If you are still one of the millions of Americans who shudder with fear imagining a world without vaccines and all you see is death and destruction as the result, then this article is meant especially for you.

Know this…

There are four basic opinions about vaccines.

(1) Those who think they are God’s gift to mankind and everyone MUST take them, no exceptions.

(2)  The second group also sees vaccines as miracle drugs but have the odd idea that we have an inherent right to make our own decisions about what we put in our bodies, and that that inherent right extends to the idea that parents are in charge of caring for their children – not some government bureaucrat running a village bypassing parental participation.

(3)  The third group believes the jury is still out on vaccine safety and effectiveness.

(4)  The fourth group, rarely mentioned, are those who aren’t sold on why people should resort to vaccinating at all because there are other time tested and proven ways of staving off epidemics and death from various diseases.

The discussion about vaccinations is so explosive, it is taboo to have a rational discussion in the media about them.

If something happens to hit the airwaves, like comments made by MDs Rand Paul and Ben Carson, who basically said they had issues with the schedule of children’s mandated shots, media commentators reminded their audiences that vaccines had been proven perfectly safe and these two doctors must be misinformed. In fact any discussion in public must start with “I believe in vaccinations, I vaccinated all my kids” just to get any traction at all.

Only Donald Trump has dared to speak his mind.

Why Are Liberal Democrats Trembling Over the Idea of a VACCINE SAFETY COMMISSION?

Because Vaccines are Neither Safe Nor Effective…

And an Empowered Federal Commission Would Reveal THAT In It’s First Month of Operation…

And THEN What?

 

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

America has been awakened to the fact that the US Vaccine Program, both for children and adults, is a massive money-generating, but deadly, dangerous, hoax.  Autism is but ONE of the problems vaccines cause.

It is likely that the anti-vaxxer movement in the US steered the presidential election towards Donald Trump – there is so much interest.

President Trump, before the inauguration, talked to Robert F. Kennedy Jr about he, Kennedy, heading up such a Vaccine Commission.  Kennedy said he would.  And, the liberal media began its shrill whining…

A keening of fear…

So let’s look at what will happen.

Do Federal Commissions Have Any Real Power?

Oh yeah – they certainly do.

Historically, Commissions in the United States have played prominent roles in US decision making.  They come in different colors and sizes, and can have different functions depending on how they are originally set up, and by whom.  Below I’ll show you some samples…

With Donald Trump Coming into Office on January 20th, 2017 I Have to be Right Here in the Middle of Things…

Life is Just Too Much Fun…

Opinion by “Deplorable” Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

You just never know…

One day you think it’s time to park the battle tanks in the warehouse, crank the missile launchers down and cover them with tarps, sell the nuclear subs to Texas, and head for a warm island where you can drink a tasty rum drink, and watch the pretty girls walk by – let the other younger warriors have all the battle fun.

I have to tell you – five weeks of that is about all I could possibly stand.  Gotta get back to the wars.  Addiction.

Then this guy Donald Trump runs for President of the US.  Every liberal mainstream media wanna-be pundit shrieked out their disdain of Trump, and his “Deplorable” support network, making claim that Trump wouldn’t even be allowed in the Republican Primaries.

After all, according to the Democratic Party leadership, the family oriented Judeo-Christian ethic was dead – for THEY had killed it, and now it was an “anything goes” world. So, according the them, heterosexual family-type voters were finished.

Then when Trump did get in they claimed he could not possibly win the Republican Primaries – which, of course, Trump did.

Then they looked down their noses, while prancing around big city gay bars on Friday Pageant Night telling themselves, and others in the Appletini crowd, that Trump couldn’t possible beat their ultimate hero, scum-sucking Hillary Clinton.

Then along came election night.   The Judeo-Christian heterosexual family types voted – and the world changed overnight.

But I have to say – you can’t just retire and come right back to the fray. There’s work that needs to be done. Preparations that need to be made.  Alliances that need re-shaping. Upgrades that need to be made to infrastructure.

So, I did…

Health Care:  Can We “Take it Back” in 2005?…

The United States Health Care system, called “Western Medicine,” is broken beyond repair.  It is so deadly, expensive, corrupt, inefficient, and riddled with “special interest” that there is, absolutely no starting point to use to begin to set it right.

Black Days For Quackbusters…

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

 

There’s a change in the tide…

For years the battle to provide appropriate health care for Americans was fought by the “healers” and their support groups – one defensive action after another, with each individual interest group re-inventing the wheel, almost every time.  Then came the “activists,” those who sort of understood the political system – they introduced legislation here and there.  Then came the “philosophers,” and the “educators” – bringing social awareness.

But Big Pharma kept coming.  The stakes were high. Continue reading Black Days For Quackbusters…

Quackbusters Accused of “Racketeering” (RICO) in Colorado…

It happened today.

Delicensed MD Stephen Barrett, his dubious website “quackwatch.com,”  Bobbie Baratz, the National Council Against Health Fraud (NCAHF), and a big chunk of the organized quackbuster conspiracy got themselves named in a lawsuit, in Colorado, for “were and are each employed or associated with an enterprise, and participated and participates in the conduct of the enterprise affairs through a pattern of  racketeering activity in violation of 18 USAC1962(c) and C.R.S. 18-17-104(3).  Said pattern of activity included and includes, but was and is not limited to, the preparation, publication, dissemination and transmittal of information by US Mail and by wire through internet websites by wire and other media which falsely represented the Plaintiff’s product and technology, constituting a violation of 18 USC 1341, 1343, 1347 and 1349, and CRS 18-17-103(5)(a)…”

The Stuart Suster MD Case – the Most Sadistic, Vicious, and Cruel So-Called Prosecution I’ve Ever Seen…

I’m reading court documents involving, and surrounding, a case called “Wisconsin DRL v. Suster.”  I’ve got a file box full of documents at my feet, all of which I’ve read, and I’m, literally, STUNNED at what I’m seeing.

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

This case, I believe, is an example of what can happen when “we the people” aren’t VERY CAREFUL about who we give authority to, to act on our behalf.  In this case, every rule of fair play has been thrown out by the perpetrators: Thexton and Moore. This case, “Wisconsin DRL v. Suster.” is a “railroad” – a sheer, arrogant abuse of State power by unprincipled, unregulated employees.
