Breaking Up the US FDA…

By Ralph Fucetola JD

A current rumor on the Internet has it that President Trump wants to abolish or combine various US Federal Agencies to create a leaner, more efficient Federal Bureaucracy. [1]

Suggestions are bantering about Facebook, Minds and Twitter.

We no doubt each have our favorite agency to see “disappeared.”    Certainly, at least the second-most-hated agency is the FDA — the Food and Drug Administration, known to some of its detractors as the Fraud and Death Administration.  It is one of the most convoluted and omnipresent agencies in the bloated organization chart of the Federal Establishment. [2]

It’s been just over a decade since an official government study of the FDA proclaimed:

The “November 2007 Report of the Subcommittee on Science and Technology – FDA Science and Mission at Risk.

1) The FDA cannot fulfill its mission because its scientific base has eroded and its scientific organizational structure is weak.

2) The FDA cannot fulfill its mission because its scientific workforce does not have sufficient capacity and capability.

3) The FDA cannot fulfill its mission because its information technology (IT) infrastructure is inadequate.

4) FDA does not have the capacity to ensure the safety of food for the nation.

5) The development of medical products based on “new science” cannot be adequately regulated by the FDA.

6) There is insufficient capacity in modeling risk assessment and analysis.

7) The FDA science agenda lacks a coherent structure and vision, as well as effective coordination and prioritization.

8) The FDA has substantial recruitment and retention challenges.

9) The FDA has an inadequate and ineffective program for scientist performance.

10) The FDA has not taken sufficient advantage of external and internal collaborations.

11) The FDA lacks the information science capability and information infrastructure to fulfill is regulatory mandate.

12) The FDA cannot provide the information infrastructure support to regulate products based on new science. [3]

The FDA is a failed agency…

…that, in Dr. Ron Paul’s memorable words, “engages in abuse of power.” He said, in effect, ‘Giving the FDA more power is giving it more power to abuse.’

Even the FDA’s own scientists are complaining about the corruption that pervades the agency — and this is not the first time conscientious scientists have raised these issues. [4]

Then we have the strange case of William W. Thompson, PhD., the whistle-blower in the CDC (an agency that acts in conjunction with the FDA) who exposed the shocking fact that the CDC knew the MMR vaccine was associated with elevated autism rates among especially black boys. [5]

I believe that due to the (1)  FDA’s focus on the drug industry (80% of its funding comes from Big Pharma “user fees”) and (2)  its failure to protect the safety of the food supply, (3)  while engaging in international “harmonization” that degrades organic standards and allows ever-increasing levels of toxins (including antibiotic residues) in the food supply, the FDA is incapable of administering food regulations.

The FDA’s prejudice against nutrient supplementation and traditional homeopathic and natural remedies means these advanced healthcare alternative competitors to pharmaceuticals are denigrated, marginalized and regulated against.

What is the answer?

What would, say, a businessman who became President do?

I suspect it would be to tell FDA to, in the immortal words of John Galt, “Get out of the way.”

We need to engage market forces to stimulate advanced alternatives to a medical system that is now the major source of death in our society, according to a landmark peer-reviewed article by Dr. Gary Null. [6]

We need to divest the FDA of any authority over foods. Maybe then it can focus on the dangers of pharmaceuticals, including the un-insurable risks of mandatory “unavoidably unsafe” vaccination, as it was mandated by law in 1986 to do. Historically both the DEA and EPA were “spun-off” the FDA.

We need to free Foods (including nutrients, and natural and homeopathic remedies) from the deadly hands of the FDA.

Health Freedom Advocates have proposed the Natural Remedies Access Act which would protect foods, vitamins, homeopathics and other natural remedies from FDA’s fake science “risk/benefit” analysis which always leads to restricting access. [7]

That’s a first step toward deregulating and divesting.

The details? I suppose we’ll have to leave that up to the CEO-in-Chief.

  1. A good article bringing to light many of the questions that need to be cornerstones of a re-organization.

    I did think that “We need to divest the FDA of any authority over foods. Maybe then it can focus on the dangers of pharmaceuticals, including the un-insurable risks of mandatory “unavoidably unsafe” vaccination” was too casual a comment. If 80% of their attention is on the drug industry and I believe it is that at best, how would removing foods help them with pharma? They’re corrupt – it’s not their attention span, it’s their leadership.

    I believe the issue is that the two agencies, FDA and CDC are so corrupt that the only way to “re-organize” is to break up their various functions for a few years, install new leadership, and then eventually integrate them again. Completely eliminate the involvement of the big-pharma revolving door people.

    A business man or woman would break them into functions, consolidate, and eliminate functions we just can’t afford. Remove all the corruption and install young mission-centered leadership. That same businessman or woman would take a quick look at the real data and shut down vaccinations until someone can absolutely and scientifically prove one by one that they’re safe.

  2. Hi Ralph,
    I would recommend a completely different route.

    The main thrust of our education system is to suppress independent thinking: this is why it takes so long to learn so little. We are also, very deliberately, taught never to trust our intuition because we would, then, just know what is good for us and what is not. We call this ability in other animals “instinct” but never question why, of all the animals on Earth, we appear not to have this ability. The truth is, of course, that we do!

    The cartels started public education because they needed a literate and numerate workforce in order to become richer. Their problem was and is that if you teach someone to read, the probability that they will learn something that you don’t want them to know rises enormously: A high-risk strategy for them which they counter by a rigid system of what children are allowed to know and then “educate” them to close their minds to everything else. In parenthesis we note that in the Schetinin Schools, which do the exact opposite, children learn the same material for which the state run system needs 12 to 15 years in 12 to 18 MONTHS! Interestingly, children from the Schetinin schools usually refuse to eat McDonalds and the ilk, “That’s not food, that’s dirt.” The Papal Imperium from whom the cartels certainly learned this also supressed literacy and made it a crime to translate The Bible from Latin into any other language so that the people as a whole would not be able to challenge what the priesthood were saying.

    The FDA, from its inception, was designed to keep knowledge and health away from the public because these would seriously harm pharmaceutical profits.

    Give almost anyone a totally clean diet for 12 months and their natural ability to know whether something will feed or poison them will re-awaken. This is why the cartels promote junk phude and the FDA has been instructed to attack health-bringing foods. (Phude is a term invented by The Natural Solutions Foundation to designate anything which, optically, looks like food but is, in fact, toxic.)
    Once someone has reached this state, they will not only be healthy but will also refuse most medication because their inner truth knows that it will harm them.

    The FDA is the Pharma-cartel’s tool to keep health away from the American people.

    An organisation which has always been designed and intended to obliterate health cannot be modified to do the opposite.

    The best possible action would be to completely abolish the FDA, start again from scratch with somebody like Mike Adams to head the new body, give it a remit to do all possible to raise public health, make it a crime for the pharma-cartel to even attempt to subvert its’ functions, finance it wholly with public funds and then look at how to prevent a reversal should America once again fall into a cartel government trap following the Trump years.

    Blessed be

    P.S. Ralph. I’d like to send you a copy of my new book and to Rima as well. What address should I use and where is Rima now? Or would you prefer the e-book version? You have my private email address, just mail me.

  3. Michael and Karma,

    I appreciate your comments which were on-point.

    Karma, of course I’d like to see the FDA and all the USA alphabet agencies abolished. That’s why I ended the article with “That’s a first step toward deregulating and divesting.”

    While “gradualism in theory is perpetuity in practice…” we need to start somewhere. If our CEO-in-Chief is really interested in making govt better, “deregulating and divesting” is the way to go.

  4. Someone there needs to organise a proper petition lobbying effort. Not a half-arsed mismanaged one like we’ve seen before.
    Put real pressure on the POTUS to re-introduce proper health freedoms to the great Sheeple of the US of A – no more health fascism, no more confiscating kids to have them medically poisoned for profit, no more banning of natural medicines because someone has been given outrageous patent rights. It needs to STOP.

  5. I agree with Mr Singh. And to make this brief: it ain’t over till the fat lady sings. These are rumors and until I see concrete action toward that end .. rumors will stay.
