“Western Medicine:” The World Has Suffered Enough…

The five components of Western Medicine are guilty, in my opinion, of more crimes against humanity than any other entity in mankind’s history.

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

As we sit here, the very structure of western civilization is at risk because of the sheer murderous greed of the number (1) component of Western Medicine – Big Pharma.  Health Care costs in the the US and Europe have gone over the top, just because Big Pharma thinks it’s OK to gouge.  US Seniors on a limited income have to make choices between food or drugs each month.  The Vioxx scandal points out just how murderous Big Pharma executives can become, in the name of profit.  Continue reading “Western Medicine:” The World Has Suffered Enough…

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. 

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

The government agencies WE THINK we put in place to monitor our health system have been completely corrupted by those “special interests.” Continue reading Health Care:  Can We “Take it Back” in 2005?…

Federally “Indict” Merck Executives…

 

We need a health care “Nuremberg…”

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

 

Shortly after South Carolina MD Jim Shortt was falsely accused of killing a female Multiple Sclerosis (MS) patient this year, supposedly by applying a Hydrogen Peroxide IV to get rid of viruses and bacteria, armed Federal, State, and local law enforcement agents, in almost a “Waco style” assault team, donned their body armor, their mirrored sunglasses, activated their Public Relations teams, and screamed and battered their way into Shortt’s West Columbia, South Carolina clinic.  With guns and warrant on hand, they seized everything in sight.

Although medical literature clearly shows that Hydrogen Peroxide IV, to get rid of viruses and bacteria, has been around for over ninety (90) years, and records show that over a million treatments have been made, with NO DEATHS, ever recorded, the mere “allegation” of death, false that it was, and made by an elected official with no medical training, caused a massive assault by US law enforcement.

Showtime in Allentown…..

It hasn’t been a good year for Big Pharma.

There is a concerted effort to break Big Pharma’s stranglehold on North American health care.  For example, just look at all the lawsuits aimed at that target, some filed by individuals, some by companies, some by big “Tort” law firms, and some by government agencies.

That “concerted effort” is working. Continue reading Showtime in Allentown…..

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…

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.

In Wisconsin: The Exception Proves the Rule…

Well, I was proven wrong on something – and I’m very pleased it happened. It happened in Wisconsin.

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

I have a jaundiced view of the media, especially national media. I wrote about this a few months ago in article called “Big Pharma Doesn’t Own the Media…”

So when members of the Wisconsin Association for Health Freedom (WAHF) thought about approaching CBS affiliate Channel 3’s “I-Team” in Madison about the quackbuster onslaught in their State, I was supportive, but not real enthusiastic. To me, TV has a fleeting sense, and doesn’t take the time to examine an issue, unless there’s a lot of blood, a car chase, bare skin, or inter-marriage between species. There is also that segment of the media who likes “shock” and has no compunctions about charging into your life with a camera, and making you look as bad as possible for their audience.

Big Pharma: America Strikes Back…

Despots, worldwide, hate America and everything it stands for one simple reason – Americans say “No” to totalitarianism. In America, people demand to think for themselves, and make decisions based on their observations.

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

 

Big pharma, worldwide, is trying to be planet earth’s lnewest despot. They almost made it. But they didn’t count on the North American Health Freedom Movement blocking their efforts to make humanity “drug-dependent” on a grand scale. They didn’t realize that Americans would see big pharma’s efforts to gouge a huge chunk out of our economy as a “criminal act.” Continue reading Big Pharma: America Strikes Back…

“Operation Cure-All” Doesn’t Exist?…

Last week I called the Press contact for what is supposedly a combined FTC/FDA project calling itself “Operation Cure-All” and asked some basic journalistic questions, like; “Where are the offices of “Operation Cure-All? Who is the Director? If it has a committee, when does it meet? Can I get a copy of it’s mission statement? How is it funded? How many employees does it have? What’s the phone number? Who decides what companies get targeted?”

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

After all, if you look on the internet on the Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC) web page, it certainly appears that “Operation Cure-All” is a re-incarnation of Elliot Ness’s assault on Al Capone in the 1920s…

Guess what the Press contact told me? Continue reading “Operation Cure-All” Doesn’t Exist?…

Big Pharma Fears Electricity…

There’s an interesting situation going on in the war between “health” and “medicine” in the United States.  Big pharma is in a panic over electricity.

Yup.  Electricity.

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

Not the kind of electricity that caused the big NorthEast power blackout this year.  But the kind that gets applied to the human body, either as an investigative tool or as a immune system stimulator, as an electronic acupuncture, or as an energy field, or whatever. Continue reading Big Pharma Fears Electricity…

I Own the FDA…

I’ll bet you didn’t know that I own the FDA. It’s mine.

It belongs to me because several years ago American citizens, just like you and me, figured out that we, as Americans, needed a Food & Drug Administration (FDA) to deal with some issues. We felt we needed an ongoing agency, under our control, to keep an eye on some particular things. So we created the FDA to do our bidding. We gave it a mission.

I’m sure you’ve already figured out, that it’s YOURS too, if you’re a US citizen.

Hmmm?

“Cry Havoc, and Loose the Dogs of War”- William Shakespeare

In the United States, the drug lords prevail.

So far...

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

26 drug companies fund the “quackbuster” operation.  But now, because of the actions of one man, we have the opportunity to pull the financial rug out from under the most evil enemy America has ever faced, the very group that has dedicated itself to the financial ruin, and the illness, and death, of North America’s population – big pharma.

Health Care: Behind the Scenes…

I’m an early riser. No matter where I am in the world, 5:00am rolls me out of bed. So, there I was in Midtown Manhattan this last week, staring out of my hotel room window into the pre-dawn darkness wondering where I’m going to find a cup of coffee without paying room-service $30. There is NO coffee that good…

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

Shave, shower, and at 5:10am I’m out into New York’s early morning – into a different world. Continue reading Health Care: Behind the Scenes…

Federal Prison For Quackbusters?

Official Health care in North America is a disaster.  It is designed “not to work,” INTENTIONALLY.  In Official Health care America, nobody ever gets “cured” of anything – only “treated.”  The system feeds massive amounts of cash into the hands of the greedy – with little, or no benefit to Americans.

AS WE SEE IT – Jerry Falwell Attacks Life Extension Foundation

Guest Editorial By William Faloon

Note:  This is a LONG article FULL of information important to the North American Health Freedom Movement.  Take the time to read it all.  You’ll be glad you did. – Tim Bolen

On July 8, 2003, an editorial by the Reverend Jerry Falwell was published in the Washington Times newspaper. The purpose of this editorial was to discourage lawmakers from passing a bill that would enable Americans to purchase lower cost medications from countries that have safety standards comparable to those of the United States.

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.”

Allopathic (MD) Corruption is a Way of Life…

If the American medical establishment (the allopaths) were in charge of our computer industry, we’d still be using #2 pencils – and you’d have to have a license to use an eraser.

The situation is that bad. “We the people” are suffering for it.

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

Allopathic medicine (MD) has failed. It is time to shut it down. As a society, we can’t afford it. In it’s present form, it isn’t worth saving, it is corrupt, and, it is in the way of REAL health care. It’s a facade on “life support.” It’s obviously brain-dead, and it’s time to pull the plug. “The man in the white coat,” is someone to avoid.

It is time to quit pretending that allopaths have something to offer. They will never make you healthy, and they can’t cure you. They don’t have the training, the knowledge, the will, or the tools, to do that. They can’t, and won’t, deal with the major health issues of the new millennium – period.

Their system’s been corrupt for too many years. It can’t be turned around.

Corruption within the ranks of the allopathic medical profession has become so prevalent, and so over-powering, and has taken so many forms, that it’s presence has become accepted – and is considered to be normal. Frankly, the title “MD” has become a symbol of dishonesty, greed, malfeasance, misfeasance, incompetence, negligence, misrepresentation, and falsehood. The allopathic concept itself is fraudulent. They “treat” your condition, rather than “cure” you. They don’t want you to get well. They don’t want you to be “healthy” – they want you to be “medicated.”

The American Public, through their buying habits, have decided they’d rather be healthy than medicated. They have found that there is a BIG difference between those two concepts. And that’s allopathy’s death knell.

ALLOPATHY IS A FALSE CONSTRUCT…

I’m amused, in a dark-humor sort of way, at how the allopaths hold themselves up as “science-based,” or “evidence-based” medicine. What a crock. As though learning how to cut up a frog in the tenth grade had some importance in the scheme of things. A good analogy is that allopaths spend so much time studying the hair mites on a beetle in the bark of a tree, that they have long forgotten, or can’t even come back up to the point where the statement “They can’t see the forest for the trees,” is relevant. They can’t even see the trees. In fact, they probably can’t even see the beetle. They definitely can’t see you…

What science? What evidence? Allopathy, in reality, is ONLY two things – drugs and surgery – neither of which, in the scheme of things, over time, has been shown to be AT ALL effective. I have good reason to say “Every allopathic claim has failed the test – EVERY ONE.” Allopathy is a sham and a scam – period. NOTHING they do is right, and too much of it is DEAD WRONG. They start, and finish, at the wrong place.

Allopathy is science based? No, it’s not… Show me the double-blind studies that prove that open-heart surgery, or bypass operations, work. Justify those barbaric hysterectomies. Defend those idiots that cut out the wrong organ, or cut off the wrong leg – and keep their licenses AND get paid for their work. What’s evidence-based about rampant off-label use of dangerous prescription drugs? What’s evidence-based about prescribing MORE THAN ONE DANGEROUS DRUG, at the same time, to the same patient? Show me the drug trials for that. Justify the sheer health horror a patient goes through with those UNPROVEN combinations chemically ripping body systems to shreds.

Better yet – show me the war on cancer (or AIDS) has some validity. Chemo, radiation, and surgery are crap – and everyone knows it. Disagree? Show me the studies. SHOW ME THE RESULTS. Surgery for prostate cancer? Would that surgeon like that done to him?

And then there are all those statistics, printed in the New England Journal of Medicine, about allopaths screwing up and killing people… And, boy do they – by the truckload. State Medical Boards, assigned, by us, to deal with these issues – DO NOT – they do the opposite – they whitewash the problems, protecting “standard-of-care” allopaths. Allopathic hospitals, reports show, are a MAJOR SOURCE of disease. Some people believe that you’d be better off being operated on in your own cesspool, rather than a hospital. At least the microbes you’d come in contact with would be familiar.

The TELLING FACT of allopathy is the cost, for them, of malpactice insurance. Insurance rates, the world over, are based upon the assessment of risk. There are no higher rates for insurance than allopaths. Why? Juries are finding allopaths, generally, are screw-ups – uncaring bumblers, butchers, and scoff-laws. Juries find for Plaintiffs – with reasonable, rational cash awards. Allopathy, in it’s sheer, officially uncaring position, refuses to deal with this issue correctly – whining about insurance rates, and attempting, instead of cleaning up it’s own act, to limit patient awards for their negligence.

THERE ARE BETTER ANSWERS THAN ALLOPATHY…

ALL of the other health disciplines operating in North America (Homeopaths, Naturopaths, Osteopaths, Chiropractic, etc.), as we well know, are far better able to deal with the health issues of the new millennium than Allopaths. The Homeopaths, Naturopaths, etc., are better educated, are a better class of people (they are “healers” not “medicators”), and actually care about their patients. They’ve got more tools to use, and they understand the problems better. And, they won’t kill you…

Allopaths, on the other hand, are restricted to prescribing the latest magic bullet, the one the drug salesman told them to PUSH last week. In this year of 2002, this is ALL allopathy is. They’ve gone the way of gold-handled, diamond encrusted, buggy whips.

Don’t tell me that the medical schools, like Stanford, and Columbia, are teaching new methods – and that their students are demanding to be educated in “Alternative Medicine.” So what? It’s not a valid statement. It doesn’t matter one bit who they teach what. For, once those students graduate, they become part of the REAL allopathic world. Their new employer makes it clear that, “that nonsense” they learned in medical school “will not be tolerated here. Go have lunch with the drug salesman.”

And, if that doesn’t do it, then the new MD will get visited by a Medical Board Investigator, who during the course of the “interview,” will casually pull back the coat to let the new MD see the gun in the holster – a hard shove into the reality of allopathy. There is only one regimen accepted in the allopathic world. Doubt what I say here? Read the policy statements on the www.fsmb.org website. That’s the reality of allopathic policy.

There is a whole world of “leading-edge”, or “Alternative Medicine MDs” (so-called “quacks”) out there in America. They have tried to break loose from the paradigm – and put some sense into allopathy. But frankly, they are not winning. They are ALL under attack from the status quo. The assault against them is a hundred times more vicious than you could believe. These “quack” MDs are the ONLY ONES worth saving. In fact, they are some of the finest people I’ve ever met in the world. These MDs, and only these, need to be preserved.

To ad insult to injury, we the people, get bombarded with the likes of an organization calling itself the “quackbusters,” whose chief propagandist, sleazy delicensed MD Stephen Barrett of www.quackwatch.com, makes a smirky living criticizing healers competing with allopaths for health dollars. Barrett, who apparently couldn’t make it as a Psychiatrist (he never became board certified) turned in his MD license (for unknown reasons) to the State of Pennsylvania in 1993. He is listed now, by Pennsylvania, as “Not in good standing…” And, Barrett’s successor, Bobbie Baratz, the president of the self-styled National Council Against Health Fraud, and heir to the quackbuster throne, is even more scummy. This guy “makes it up as he goes along.” Baratz’s fake resume is classic. His claims at expertise are literally fantastic. He also, travels around testifying to things he knows little, or nothing, about, for money.

The term “quack” seems to be one used by allopaths to describe anyone who operates outside of the rigidly controlled drug/surgery “standard-of-care” paradigm. Within the allopathic world, ANYONE who tries something new for a patient, or operates outside of the rigid allopathic paradigm, is classified as a “quack.” Unless, of course, they’re are recommending the latest magic bullet – the one this week’s drug salesman told them to PUSH.

In other words, the allopaths KNOW they nothing to offer, and don’t want anyone else to offer REAL health solutions.

OUR EFFORTS, SO FAR…

As a society we’ve made several attempts to reverse the perversion. At best, our efforts have been stop-gap. The process that showed the best hope – the interjection of the HMO concept – is only holding the line. All we we’ve been able to do, so far, is to take the “medical decisions” out of the hands of the MD greed-monsters, and put them into the hands of normal, common-sense, people. As a society, we need to have medical decisions made, based upon expected results, not on an MD’s desire to upgrade his twin-engine Bonanza to a Lear jet.

Another effort, the passage of punitive legislation, like Kennedy-Kasselbaum (federal) has only helped stem the tide of horror. You don’t stop a greed-monster by just putting up a few barriers. When a vampire wants to drink blood, putting bars on your windows just sends them to your neighbor’s house. Allopathy has a voracious appetite.

Perhaps the most productive effort so-far, is the US Justice Department’s Health Fraud Task Force initiated by Janet Reno, and carried on by the Bush Administration. It is VERY effective; it identifies the vampires, makes an example out of them for other sleazy operators, and exacts severe penalties, plus pay-backs, of our money. In a joint project with AARP, Justice teaches “seniors” how to read their Medicare billing statements to find “false billings,” and turn in their health provider for prosecution. And, none too soon.

The Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA) has come down hard on dishonest allopaths. They’ve put in place a “spot review” process of billings sent to Medicare, and they now have “flags” on the files of frequent violators. There are a lot of flags…

Insurance companies now have tools to prosecute false billings – and they use them.

WHAT’S NEXT?

What do we do next? The NUMBER ONE answer is OPEN recognition of the problem. It is time to face reality. We’ve got to get rid of the lie known as “MD.” We must educate the public – including our legislators and our news media about the truth.

And what’s the truth? Allopathy is all smoke and mirrors. The truth is that “those two guys in the white coats are not Marcus Welby, and Ben Casey.” That’s not what allopathy is – and it never was.

Allopathy is Stephen Barrett, and Bobbie Baratz. Stephen Barrett, and Bobbie Baratz, are allopathy. And, there’s no more to it then that.

Allopathy, celebrating a meager 100 years on our planet, has had it’s time. It has failed us miserably. The only thing holding it up is the status quo. Americans don’t consciously spend their money on it. Only the bureaucracy of Medicare and Insurance pays for it. And, it’s time to put an end to that. We need to operate on results – not false promise.

Allopathy is on “life support.” It’s obviously brain-dead. It’s time to pull the plug.
