Wisconsin: The Vander Heyden Case…

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

 

A couple days ago I wrote an article called “The American Medical System is Broken…”  The material for it, the original study called “Death by Medicine,” sat on the corner of my desk for months.  The material was so shocking, even for a skeptic of the medical system like me, that I simply needed to digest it.  I needed to think about what it all meant – for the study makes it crystal clear that organized medicine is the number one killer of Americans.

And number two, and number three… Continue reading Wisconsin: The Vander Heyden Case…

The American Medical System is Broken…

May 27th, 2004

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

 

Everybody knows that the US MEDICARE System will go belly-up in the year 2011.  It’s going to be, at that point, so costly that the United States simply won’t be able to afford it anymore. Foreign owned “Big Pharma”is bleeding us to death.

American corporations, right this moment, are cutting back their health care offerings.  No one can afford the skyrocketing costs.  Foreign owned “Big Pharma” is bleeding us to death. Continue reading The American Medical System is Broken…

Wisconsin Update…

I’m back in Wisconsin again, for good reason.  The quackbuster cancer has come back.  We didn’t get it all.

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

In Wisconsin, we tried surgery.  The Department of Regulation & Licensing (DRL) Secretary, Donsia Strong Hill had, previously, told the whole State; legislators, media, the Health Freedom Movement, and the public-at-large that “Alternative medicine was NOT going to be singled out, in Wisconsin.”  With the settlement of the Kadile case, the dropping of the Waters case, the cessation of action against NAET, and a few other cases disappearing, we were lulled into comfort and security.

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

Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle Hammers “Big Pharma’s FDA…”

The State of Wisconsin, from the Governor on down, is not friendly to the “status quo” in health care.

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle has joined the ranks of Americans, in public office, openly defying Food and Drug Administration (FDA) edicts about Americans buying Canadian prescription drugs on the internet.  The FDA has issued an edict informing Americans that it is illegal to purchase  prescription drugs from Canadian sources on the internet. Continue reading Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle Hammers “Big Pharma’s FDA…”

10,000 Canadian deaths per year caused by Health Canada’s hiding drug reaction information…

(Note:  Here is a Guest Editorial by Anthony Stephen, one of the top Health Freedom activists in Canada, detailing the fight of Canadian citizens to take back control of Health Canada from Big Pharma.  As you can see by the article, Canadian Health Freedom is doing very well…)

Guest Editorial by ‘Anthony Stephan’

 

Here is the recent House of Commons Standing Committee report detailing the 10,000 Canadian deaths per year caused by Health Canada’s hiding drug reaction information. So far the Canadian Medical Association, the courts, and now the Standing committee on Health have exposed them. Continue reading 10,000 Canadian deaths per year caused by Health Canada’s hiding drug reaction information…

In Wisconsin – The “Narrative” Says It All…

Finding the Suster case (Wisconsin DRL v. Suster) was like finding gold.  For in it, are all the elements wherein health insurance companies are involved in the suppression of new things in health care.  Below is a “Narrative” recently filed in that DRL v. Suster case.  It says a lot about the corruption in our Administrative Law system.

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

The “Narrative” also points out how sleazy health insurance companies really are, and how far they’ll go to NOT pay claims. Continue reading In Wisconsin – The “Narrative” Says It All…

Wisconsin is the “Test Case…”

Wisconsin has, for the last several years, been a “showdown” between the waning quackbuster forces and the emerging, and awakening, North American Health Freedom Movement.  To some, the problems in Wisconsin represent a microcosm of the whole health situation on the North American continent. To me, the study of how the quackbusters entrenched themselves in Wisconsin, brought out valuable, and usable, information on how to beat the quackbusters – everywhere.

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

Recently, purely by accident, in Wisconsin, we discovered another important aspect of the suppression of cutting-edge health care – the health insurance industry.  Oh, we knew the health insurance industry doesn’t want to pay for new things, but we never knew, or understood, the extent they’d go to to damage a provider of cutting-edge health care.  Below, you’ll read about how we found out.  You’ll also read what the health insurance people did to a health practitioner who found a way to demand payment using the US Government.

Wisconsin:  Just when we thought it was safe to go back in the water…

Department of Regulation & Licensing (DRL) “quackbuster” prosecutors Arthur Thexton, and James Polewski, in a series of actions, are openly defying new DRL policies set down by recent Governor’s appointee, new DRL head Donsia Strong Hill.  In this test of wills, it will be interesting to see who wins – the Governor of Wisconsin, or the “quackbusters.

Wisconsin:  Tough Decision Time…

Arthur Thexton, one of the Wisconsin Department of Regulation & Licensing (DRL) prosecutors who embraced the “quackbuster” crackpot theory of health care, limped out of a hearing in Room 179a, after lunch yesterday, looking very much like a man who’s suddenly seen his rocky-road future.

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

The hearing, called to determine “costs, and allocation of costs,” in the State of Wisconsin v. Kadile case, didn’t go well for Thexton.  Thexton is the one who had brought in hair removal and ear piercing specialist Robert S. Baratz, the current president of the discredited National Council Against Health Fraud (NCAHF), as the do-all, be-all expert witness in the Kadile case.  Thexton had paid Baratz about $70,000 in so-called “expert witness” fees out of the Wisconsin Medical Board’s limited funds.  Baratz’s wild-eyed opinions, coupled with equally ludicrous crackpot offerings by Stephen Barrett, who was paid about $3,500 for his drivel in the case, had caused the State to spend over $165,000 on the unsuccessful prosecution.  Kadile’s “defense” cost over $300,000. Continue reading Wisconsin:  Tough Decision Time…

Wisconsin:  The Quackbuster’s “Waterloo?…”

Just a few years ago, in Wisconsin, leading-edge health practitioners were at risk offering effective alternatives to the deadly drugs/surgery paradigm.  The “quackbusters” ruled State health care with an iron hand.  Anyone who dared offer real solutions to suffering patients, and caught the attention of Wisconsin’s anti-health minions, paid a heavy price.

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

In the world-wide war between “health” and “medicine,” Wisconsin’s throat was most definitely under the heel of jack-booted “medicine” minions. But not any more… Continue reading Wisconsin:  The Quackbuster’s “Waterloo?…”

Washington State Introduces New Health Freedom Bill – HB 2355…

 A Guest Editorial by Monty Kline PhD

 

A new bill has been introduced into the Washington State House of Representatives – January 2004.  It’s called the Access to Complementary/Alternative Health Care Act, a “Practitioner Freedom/Consumer Protection” measure.

Background

Numerous studies demonstrate that millions of Americans of all demographic groups receive a substantial part of their health care services from complementary and alternative health care practitioners.  The Eisenberg Study (JAMA 1998;280:1569-1575) found that over 50% of the people in the Western United States use some form of complementary or alternative health care.  At this time many complementary/alternative approaches are being proven safe and effective, while even the Journal of the American Medical Association is reporting that conventional medical and drug approaches are the third leading cause of death in America (JAMA 2000;284:483-485). Continue reading Washington State Introduces New Health Freedom Bill – HB 2355…

Prescription Drug Benefit Under Medicare…

A Guest Editorial by Joel M. Kauffman, PhD, Professor of Chemistry Emeritus,  University of the Sciences in Philadelphia

 

By now you must believe you have heard every possible objection and outrage to the Medicare Prescription Drug Benefit plan of 2003 that is now law.  The loudest screams are opposites: that there are gaps in the benefit, the “doughnut hole”, which should be plugged, and the maximum benefit should be set higher, meaning that it ought to cost us taxpayers more.  Others cry that drugs cost too much, that the plan is a drug company subsidy, so costs should be forced down because drugs are in the same class as a public utility.  The drug companies object that this will stifle all innovation. Continue reading Prescription Drug Benefit Under Medicare…

Busting the Quackbusters: The Plan for 2004…

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

 

In 2004, the North American Health Freedom Movement needs to take a HARD LINE AGAINST the “suppression” of new health care. Where a new idea, paradigm, product is blocked, harassed, intimidated, or what-ever, in favor of the status quo, we need to take appropriate action against those responsible.  No matter who it is.

The war between “health” and “medicine” is a life or death struggle.

Forcing Americans to die to support the concept that a new health regimen, product, etc., must be bureaucratically “accepted” or “proven” before it can be used is, without a doubt, PREMEDITATED MURDER – and we need to deal with it as such.  Any government agent, supporting “suppression” needs to spend time in a Federal penitentiary, and in some cases, end their life at the end of a rope.

Period. No exceptions. Continue reading Busting the Quackbusters: The Plan for 2004…

An Open Letter to Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle….

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

 

Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle – It’s time you took a hard line with the employees at your Department of Regulation and Licensing (DRL), with an eye towards a serious house cleaning.  The employees you have there simply ignore State policy, and common sense.  Incompetence, ignorance, and brutality have become virtue. Continue reading An Open Letter to Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle….

Quackbusters Defeated in Wisconsin – AGAIN…

Taking “quackbuster” (quackpot) advice can be dangerous to your public career. That’s what Wisconsin Department of Regulation & Licensing (DRL) Prosecutor Arthur Thexton has found out the hard way. His connection with, and the use of, the “quackbusters,” has led him down the path into much tighter control of his daily activities, and a series of HUMILIATING losses in the Wisconsin Court System. He is also facing years of personal legal actions filed against him for his activities.

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

But, he can’t say he wasn’t warned… Continue reading Quackbusters Defeated in Wisconsin – AGAIN…

The “Wisconsin Project” is NOT over…

The important issue in Wisconsin has always been that TWO State employees, Arthur Thexton and James Polewski, both Prosecutors at the Department of Regulation & Licensing (DRL), had openly, and brazenly, without permission or consultation with their superiors at DRL, embraced, and agreed to promote, and ENFORCED as though they had merit in law, the CRACKPOT health positions of a subversive organization calling itself the quackbusters.”   

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

Polewski actually bragged of his membership in the fully courtroom-discredited National Council Against Health Fraud (NCAHF). Thexton had actually used Robert S. Baratz, the current president of the so-called NCAHF, an organization of doubtful origin and pedigree, currently run out of Baratz’s Braintree, Massachusetts hair-removal and ear-piercing salon, as an advisor and expert witness for the State of Wisconsin, and paid him a LOT of Wisconsin money…

Wonders never cease. Continue reading The “Wisconsin Project” is NOT over…

Australian Health Freedom Movement Gears Up For War…

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

 

This important story is about how well the Australian Health Freedom Movement is organizing its campaign. In a minute I’m going to send you to read a well written article by Eve Hillary titled “Casualties of Corporate Medicine – The Jennie Burke Story.”

Eve Hillary’s article clearly, and simply, using the story of Jennie Burke, explains the political situation facing leading-edge health practitioners “Down Under.” Eve tells the story of“who, what, where, when, and how”  big pharma has organized its Australian anti-health campaign.  Every Health Advocate, and certainly every Health Freedom Advocate, in the world, should take a look at “the mechanism” of an organized “quackbuster” operation. The quackbuster modus operandi in Australia is atypical. What they do in Australia, is what they do everywhere. Knowing how they operate is knowing how to beat them.

Wisconsin Quackpot Prosecutor Sued in Fed Court…

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

 

Arthur Thexton, the Wisconsin Prosecutor who was recently humiliated in the Wisconsin Department of Regulation & Licensing (DRL) v. Kadile case, has been sued by another MD in the State of Wisconsin. When I read the NEW case, the charges against Thexton, and the surrounding documents, all of which I’m making available for you to read, I couldn’t help but shake my head in wondering.

Thexton has just finished being demolished in the Kadile case in Wisconsin, where Thexton spent $165,000 of the State’s money, falsely prosecuting Kadile, using as the accuser, case advisor, and “expert witness,” the well known crackpot Robert S. Baratz MD, DDS, whose medical/dental career has sunk so low his current income source, besides testifying, is the operation of a hair removal and ear piercing salon in Braintree Massachusetts, from which address he also runs the dubious National Council Against Health Fraud (NCAHF).  Now, Thexton has moved right on to another Wisconsin State debacle.  He’s apparently prosecuting an MD in a billing dispute with a health insurance company.  Thexton is acting on behalf of the insurance company,  and, he’s using taxpayer funds to do it.

State of Wisconsin Officially Dumps Quackbusters… and Allows Chelation Therapy

The State of Wisconsin Department of Regulation & Licensing (DRL) has, officially, dumped the “quackbusters” as their consultant on health care issues. This ends a ten year reign-of-terror within Wisconsin where, previously, health care investigators, and prosecutors had been trained to use the dubious website “quackwatch.com,” or “ncahf.org” as resources for health information.

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

A CBS News “I-Team” report, titled “State Drops Case Against Alternative Medicine Doctor,” pretty well sums up the end of the quackbuster reign in Wisconsin State health politics. The TV broadcast started out to say “The Wisconsin Medical Examining Board unanimously voted by phone Friday to put an end to the state’s nine-year-old case against a Green Bay doctor.” Then it said “It’s a victory for freedom of choice, and I think it’s a victory for complimentary and alternative medicine and, quite frankly, I think it’s a victory for Dr. Kadile, personally,” Continue reading State of Wisconsin Officially Dumps Quackbusters… and Allows Chelation Therapy
