My BANNED TEDx Talk…

KP Stoller, MD  www.incurable-me.com

I’ve been banned in Albuquerque…

For those who don’t know what TED talks are, TED (Technology, Entertainment and Design) is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, often in the form of short, talks (18 minutes or less).   TEDx talks are usually 9 minutes or less, but are independently run.

My Santa Fe PR person,  helping me launch my book Incurable Me, nominated me to give a talk in Albuquerque, New Mexico on the “Future of Medicine”  (February 16th, 2017) to help answer the question…

 “What if New Mexico was the best place to practice medicine?”

An interesting question because New Mexico is ranked the #1 worst place to practice medicine by a 2016 Medscape survey. Given that

the local sponsors were the University of New Mexico Health Science Center (UNM-HSC) and Presbyterian Healthcare Services I was pleasantly surprised that I had been selected to speak.

At one point in my career (as a New Mexico physician), I had been on the adjunct clinical faculty at UNM-HSC, but my appointment was not renewed soon after my attempts to get the NM  Board of Pharmacy to scrutinize the legality of injecting the mercury preservative Thimerosal in vaccines into citizens violating the State’s Drug Act. There were a few provisions in the Act about banning adulterants that have no safety testing, but the Board of Pharmacy didn’t have the backbone to enforce the law.

At Odds…

I was always at logger heads with the medical directors (gate-keepers) at Presbyterian, because they would frequently deny my patients coverage for hyperbaric oxygen therapy and we would always meet up at various appeal hearings. They must have spent 1000 times more in legal fees than what  my patients requested in reimbursement. But to them “off-label” Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) was on their list of things they could deny and so they did so regardless of the circumstances, regardless of the cost to the patient, and regardless that it helped our mutual patients.

I treated a man 9 months out from a carbon monoxide exposure and he made stellar improvements in his functionality.

There is No California Mandatory Childhood Vaccination YET, But It MAY Be Coming…

Note from Tim Bolen: I have been saving this article from my friend Rick Jaffe Esq for the right time – and that time is now…

Why?  Rick has outlined, very astutely, the globalist’s plan for America’s children using the USA Childhood Vaccine Program – taking children away from the home and making them wards of the State.  He figured out their whole plan and outlined it for us all to look at, explaining in detail what they are trying to do…

Why did I hold onto this?  Because the anti-vaxxer movement in the US has, so to speak, taken a baseball bat to the pro-vaxxers, making vaccines a major issue in Presidential Election 2016.  Did that work for us?  Yup – So much so, that we will get a “Vaccine Safety Commission” out of it, and we will use that Commission  to grind the Vaccine Construction into fish food… 

I have been very carefully observing the liberal Democrats’ reaction to the Trump victory, and I cannot help but laugh, with sheer joy, as the liberal Democrats self destruct with their screaming “demonstrations,” pissing off normal Americans with their spoiled-three-year-old, lie-down-on-the-floor-and-kick-their-feet, antics.

So, for your reading enjoyment just below is Rick’s analysis of how the liberal Democrats intend to proceed… and how to stop them dead in their tracks…

SB 277 – Medical Exemptions – The California Medical Board is Going to Take Bob Sears MD’s Medical License Away From Him…

He’s Going to Be the “Poster Boy” For Execution…

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

 

Is the California Medical Board (CMB) REALLY Going to take Bob Sears’s medical license?   Yup, and his support network will whine, whimper, scream, shout, pout, dress-alike, kick-their-feet, and ruminate, all to no affect.  They’ll make a lot of noise on FaceBook.  There will be photos with Congressmen.  But, there will be NO ACTIVITY to actually do something to really help Bob, or themselves.

Why?  Because his support network has NO IDEA what the real problems are, much less have any ideas on how to solve those problems.  Why?  They NEVER do any background research – they just EMOTE for a day or two, or a week, then move on to the next FaceBook tidbit.

Is it possible to save Bob’s license?  Yup.  I already see the way – it just took a little research.  Below, I’ll outline it for you.

Who is Bob’s support network?  The Canary Party/Health Choice (CP/HC) nitwits.  Bob was right there during those bungled attempts to stop SB 277 legislation singing in the choir the We know that vaccines are safe and effective (sniff, sniff) we just want personal choice (whimper, whimper)” song.

Over the next few weeks you’ll see what looks like mobilization for Bob.  But, like the first four campaigns, it will look good on the outside, but will have no substance, and will accomplish absolutely NOTHING.

Poor Bob…

A lifetime of helping others, and he’s going to go down the drain.

Maybe Not…

Board Subpoenas , YES (usually); De Facto Search Warrants, NO

Note from Tim Bolen –  A good many of  our readers are from the “patient” side of the medical/healthcare equation.  But, for instance, there are those of us that have spent our careers on both sides of that practitioner/patient situation.  Health Professionals that can deal, successfully, with problems like Autism (Vaccine Damage), need a much higher level of protection – because the medical/health system frowns on cutting-edge innovation in health care.  My friend attorney Rick Jaffe has dealt with those challenges, successfully, for years.  

So, I am going to give all of you a glimpse of what goes on, legally, behind the scenes, to protect cutting edge practitioners, with some articles that would normally just go out to those hundred thousand or so of cutting-edge practitioners.

 I think you will find it all very interesting…

Texas Medical Board (TMB) personnel face damage claim for illegally trying to search and seize medical records.

by Richard Jaffe JD
In the late 1980s, my New York law firm did some work for Robert Atkins involving the New York medical board, (aka the Office of Professional Medical Conduct). The board wanted the records of a number of his ozone therapy patients. The patients didn’t want their records released, so Bob Atkins hired our firm to try to quash the subpoena.

We made precedent, but not in a good way. The New York appellate court ruled against us and held that the board has a right to medical records, even over the objection of the patient.  In virtually every state, with some variations, a medical board can obtain patient medical records in the absence of patient consent and despite HIPAA. (The one exception is California where if the patient doesn’t want his or her records released, the medical board has to go to court to convince a judge that there is good cause for releasing the records.  I am doing one of those cases right now.)

How this usually shakes out is that a physician receives a letter from the board about a complaint and asks for medical records. The letter will also usually include a subpoena and a business records affidavit form so that the medical records can be admissible in an administrative proceeding. The board’s letter usually gives the physician a few weeks to respond and turn-over the records.

Not too long ago, the Texas Medical Board tried something different for a doctor who they suspected might be operating an unregistered pain management clinic. A medical board investigator along with a DEA agent showed-up at a physician’s office and demanded access to certain medical records on the spot using presenting an instant subpoena (subpoena instantar).

The Vaccine Industry’s Campaign to Destroy Mark and David Geier is Failing Miserably …

Opinion by Consumer Advocate  Tim Bolen 

 

The pseudo-skeptic weenies that write (and band together to get Google ranking)  about Mark and David Geier would like their readers to believe that dire things are happening to the father and son nemeses of the vaccine industry.  They will tell you, for instance, that more and more States are taking Mark Geier’s medical licenses away – blah, blah, blah…

It is all just a ruse to damage the Geiers.  And, it is not working. Continue reading The Vaccine Industry’s Campaign to Destroy Mark and David Geier is Failing Miserably …

The Fundamental Issues Coming Up in the Geier Case…

Opinion by Consumer Advocate  Tim Bolen 

 

A hearing will begin in Maryland in front of an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) tomorrow morning (June 17th, 2011) to determine whether, or not, the Maryland Board of Physicians had justifiable cause to immediately suspend Mark Geier MD’s medical license.  The hearing could last up to a week before all of the world-class Geier witnesses could be heard.

AAPS  Wallops Texas Medical Board…

Fasten your seat belt.

Opinion by Consumer Advocate  Tim Bolen 

Yes, this story about the American Association of Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) chewing up the Texas Medical Board in a Federal Appeals Court is already all over the internet.  However, not one of the stories tell you what’s going on behind the scenes.  And, that’s where the action is.

California Medical Board Hears FINAL “Enforcement Monitor” Report – and Changes Direction…

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

 

This story is about the biggest victory in the history of health freedom battles EVER. 

It was a banner day, last Thursday, November 3rd, 2005, in California, for the powerful North American Health Freedom Movement.  Years of hard work, organizing, button-holing of legislators and the governor’s office, educating the media, making alliances where we never had before – paid off.  In spades…

The once powerful quackbuster” influence in California health care politics was broken, years ago now, and, as of last Thursday, the apparatus it set up to control health care in California has been dismantled.  Health care quality has, once again, been brought under the control of the citizens of California.  And, things are about to change radically.

Very radically.  For the California Medical Board is the first State to officially shift its focus – and will now target, en masse, and with new muscle, and new funding, those responsible for “organized medicine” being the number one killer of Americans.

The report Death by Medicine,” released earlier this year shows that “It is evident that the American medical system is the leading cause of death and injury in the United States“:

The number one cause of unnecessary death in the United States, called Iatrogenic deaths  (783,986) is shown in the table below, re-printed by permission of the authors:

Condition Deaths Cost Author
Hospital ADR 106,000 $12 billion Lazarou1 Suh49
Medical error 98,000   $2 billion  IOM
Bedsores 115,000 $55 billion Xakellis7 Barczak8
Infection 88,000 $5 billion Weinstein9 MMWR10
Malnutrition 108,800 ——–  Nurses Coalition11
Outpatient ADR 199,000 $77 billion Starfield12 Weingart112
Unnecessary Procedures 37,136  $122 billion HCUP3,13
Surgery-Related  32,000 $9 billion AHRQ85
TOTAL 783,936 $282 billion

The number two cause of unnecessary death in the United States is Heart Disease. Statistics show “The 2001 heart disease annual death rate is 699,697.”

The number three cause of unnecessary death in the United States is Cancer.  Statistics show “the annual cancer death rate, 553,251.”

The total number of known unnecessary deaths, per year, directly due to the American Medical System is 2,036,884.

For years the staff of the California med board, like most other State health regulatory agencies, focused their attacks on “good” doctors – those that stepped out of the drugs, drugs, and more drugs paradigm to find newer and better solutions for their patient problems – and conspicuously ignored the activities of the “bad “doctors – those that were responsible, of late, for making “organized medicine” that number one killer of Americans.

It was, and is, commonly believed that California med board enforcement teams made decisions to spend limited enforcement dollars prosecuting doctors not on the seriousness of their actions, but on their potential to NOT be able to afford a defense.

In other words – they went for the “easy hit.” 

The California based Union of American Physicians & Dentists (UAPD) once told me that about 55% of all California MDs were “solo practitioners,” working in small, individual offices – but that 95% of the prosecutions by the med board were filed against those same “solo” practitioners.

Why?  four reasons, I think. 

(1) Because doctors working for hospitals, HMOs, etc., had the protection of HUGE legal defense budgets, and the services of lawyers that could wipe the floor with anything the med board could face them with.

(2)  Hospitals will not report MD problems to the Medical Board – hiding from the board their activities – to protect their defective doctors.

(3)  State investigators and prosecutors had been focused on prosecuting “good” doctors through alleged “training” (propaganda) provided, I think, by the Federation of State Medical Board (FSMB), and other “quackbuster influenced, or controlled, groups.

(4)  Investigators and prosecutors are, simply, poorly trained in the issues, and functionally incapable, of even understanding the complex issues of health care enforcement.

As you have read from one of my earlier newsletters – The American Medical System is Broken…”

So, what actually happened? 

Thursday, the California Medical Board heard the FINAL report of the “Enforcement Monitor,” thrust on them, at our request, by the California legislature.  The Board, and the board staff, have already adopted, and put in place, fifty (50) of the sixty-five (65) recommendations in the FINAL report.  Within that report is a significant change in focus – and the setting up of the apparatus, including the legislation, and the additional funding necessary, to go after “bad” doctors  – with a vengeance.

California, to its credit, has become the first State to proactively address the horrifying fact that “organized medicine” is the number one killer of Americans – and do something about it.

I applaud the members of the California Legislature and the Medical Board for this LANDMARK action.

The report, frankly a model for every State, addresses seven basic issues of enforcement – in detail.  The report, upwards of two hundred (200) pages outlines how an enforcement agency actually works, and makes recommendations on how to improve it.  Download a copy of this startling report for yourself, by clicking here. 

So, what do we do with this? 

This report will be officially presented by delegates of the California Medical Board to the Federation of States Medical Board (FSMB) in April of 2006 – and  I have no doubt that the  New York ad agency that controls the “quackbuster operation will conduct a campaign to stop this process from going nationwide.

However, the powerful North American Health Freedom Movement has groups in every State.  I urge all of you to consider formally presenting California’s actions, and report, to each State’s Medical Board – and very nicely, but insistently, demand that they do exactly the same thing – and if they don’t – go immediately to the State Capitol, and sit down with the Chairman of the Senate and the House of Representative’s Health Committee – and lay the cards on the table…

In summary – we started out to simply get the staff off the backs of cutting edge MDs, and other practitioners in California – and we changed the practice of California medicine forever.  Take a look at the numbers in the graph above – won’t it be nice to reduce those numbers to near zero?

Yes, this is  the biggest victory in the history of health freedom battles EVER.  For years we’ve been fending off attacks from the very people that were massively killing Americans – we’ve turned the tables.

In California we have more to do.  “Victory” just makes us work harder.

Stay tuned…

Medical Board Brutality…

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

 

I’m about to tell you about an important legal “case” in California that has far-reaching (national) implications for the regulation of health care, and other, licensed professionals.  The case is currently heading for the California Appeals Court – and a letter from YOU to the presiding Judge of the Appeals Court will have a tremendous effect.  I’ll explain.

California “Sinaiko” Case:  The “Quackbuster’s” Breaking Point…

April 4th, 2005

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

 

For years the “quackbuster”  attacks against innovative health practitioners were handled, by health activists, in the “defense” mode.  The California “Sinaiko” case was the turning point.

The reason:  the “quackbusters”  had won so many battles, and had caused so many problems for innovative health practitioners since the “Plan of ’96” took effect, that they were arrogant beyond belief. Continue reading California “Sinaiko” Case:  The “Quackbuster’s” Breaking Point…

In California:  We know How to Treat “Quackbusters”…

Victory can be so-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o sweet…  I’ll tell you about our latest victory in a minute, but first…

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

In California we like to have first rate health care.  The attitude is “we deserve it.”  We’ve got the fifth largest stand-alone economy in the world – and it isn’t by accident.  California is vibrant, and we’re into “health” here.

The North American “quackbuster”  operation is scrambling for survival – because, among other things, Californians boil them in oil – so to speak. Continue reading In California:  We know How to Treat “Quackbusters”…

“Tennessee Medicine” – What Were You Thinking?…  An OPEN Letter to the Tennessee Medical Association

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

 

Someone forwarded to me an article coming up in your April 2005 issue of “Tennessee Medicine” called “The CAM Controversy: Should Tennessee Embrace Complementary and Alternative Medicine?”  On the whole the article wasn’t too bad, and it portrayed the controversy fairly well EXCEPT FOR your use, as a credible resource, of known crackpot, and failed MD, Stephen Barrett, and the defunct National Council Against Health Fraud (NCAHF).

What were you thinking? Continue reading “Tennessee Medicine” – What Were You Thinking?…  An OPEN Letter to the Tennessee Medical Association

The “Quackbuster’s” Attack on Dental Medicine…

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

 

I’m a severe critic of the broken North American Health Care System.  For the most part, so far, I’ve focused my commentaries on the medical world.   I’ve not ignored the dental world – I just haven’t given it all the attention it deserves.  From what I’ve seen, though, North American Dentistry may be in worse shape than Medicine.

Health Freedom:  CHELATION VICTORY in Connecticut…

Chelation therapy is now completely legal in Connecticut.

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

The Connecticut Medical Board, on Tuesday February 15th, 2005, was presented with a negotiated settlement in the Connecticut Health Department versus Robban Sica MD case.  The parties recommending this settlement were the Connecticut Department of Health (DOPH), the Connecticut Attorney General, Robban Sica MD and her attorneys, the International College of Integrative Medicine (ICIM), and the American College for the Advancement of Medicine (ACAM).  The board accepted the recommendation.

Quackbusters “Shortt-Circuited” in South Carolina…

Generally speaking, I’ve always found that the word “inept” usually describes “quackbuster” leadership.  I’ve never been proven wrong.

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

The “quackbusters,” or in this case the more aptly descriptive term “quackpots,” are getting desperate for a victory.  They thought the Jim Shortt MD case in South Carolina would do the trick.  But it isn’t happening for them.  Today was another example. Continue reading Quackbusters “Shortt-Circuited” in South Carolina…

Wisconsin:  Just a Lull in the Battle…

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

 

According to a major new study, 39,170 people die unnecessarily, and 301,513 have severe health problems in Wisconsin due to the problems inherent in the approved American Health Care System – and nothing is being done about it.  You can find out more about this by reading an earlier article called “The American Medical System is Broken.” Continue reading Wisconsin:  Just a Lull in the Battle…

Quackbusters Retreat to “Liar For Hire” Tactic in Connecticut?…

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

 

Big Pharma, as the “drug” industry is known, has for years funded, and operated, a covert group commonly known as the “quackbusters” whose purpose is to stomp out competition to “drug therapies.”  The operation is run out of a New York ad agency.  Previously successful, the “quackbuster” operation is now, not only facing stiff resistance, but is itself, facing attack. Continue reading Quackbusters Retreat to “Liar For Hire” Tactic in Connecticut?…

California Appeals Court, in Sinaiko Case, Stomps Quackbusters…

The California Medical Board v. Sinaiko case started in 1996, and hasn’t ended yet…

October 6th, 2004

But for some time, for the “quackbusters,” the Sinaiko case, has been the most devastating loss in their history – for with it, during it, and because of it, they lost ALL influence in California.   And worse for them, and good for California, with this case organized conventional medicine in California turned against them.  California is the fifth largest stand alone economy on Planet Earth.

And now, it’s going to get even more devastating. Continue reading California Appeals Court, in Sinaiko Case, Stomps Quackbusters…

The “Health” Battle in Connecticut…

There is a war on in America over the future of health care.  It is, without doubt, a classic battle between good and evil. 

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

Simply spoken, The forces of “Health” are determined to change the system to fit the needs of a modern day America..  The forces of “Medicine”  are determined, at any cost, to maintain the status quo.    There are several battles raging.  One of those is in Connecticut. Continue reading The “Health” Battle in Connecticut…

The Wisconsin “Suster” Case:  Important to America…

This is a story about “prosecutorial misconduct.”  It outlines the reasons, in graphic detail, why we, as Americans, have to pay close attention to the daily activities of those we delegate certain powers to – prosecutors.

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

There has been a lot of attention given in the last few years, in the United States, to issues of prosecutorial misconduct.”  So much so that the American Bar Association (ABA) set up a special task force to deal with the problem, and promoted a a bill in the US Congress to solve the issue. Their action was spurred by a rash of cases, nationwide, where Federal prosecutors decided that the US Constitution had no meaning for them in the pursuit of their interests. As many Americans know, though, that “misconduct” wasn’t, and isn’t, limited to the Feds.   Continue reading The Wisconsin “Suster” Case:  Important to America…
