Is The CDC Trustworthy?

CDC Protocol

“Trust is the glue of life.  It’s the most essential ingredient in effective communication.  It’s the foundational principle that holds all relationships.”
– Stephen Covey

A lot of citizens are currently concerned about a possible Ebola pandemic scenario. Who could blame them? Most are taught as younglings to believe that government is good while also taught to trust authority. Police, Firemen, Nurses, Teachers, Bankers, are just some of the examples of positions which people surrender authority too without thinking twice.

When was the last time you, or anybody else for that matter, when in a position of emergency actually bothered to check someone’s credentials verifying them with the local Police Station, Hospital, etc.? Absolutely nobody. People just assume the individuals that seem like a person of authority are in fact that.

Usually that happens when the dilemma is a vital one, correct? Except, nobody knows what skeletons any of those individuals might be hiding in their proverbial closets. And in the days where priests – again, another position of authority – can be part of pedophile rings, anything is possible.

Which brings me to my next point: the all-knowing Centers for Disease Control [CDC].

The notorious CDC, which was founded in 1946, claims that it wants its healthcare workers to be ‘safe and prepared’.   Who doesn’t want that? With such rosy words being bandied about by this private organization, once again, many people are quick to trust those in positions of authority.

Simply because someone, or something – such institution for instance – is in position of authority does not mean that they know what they are doing, and it certainly does not mean they are trustworthy.

Surely, there are many great individuals in places of authority, but these points are not about them. It is about the blind trust that is taught to children, who whence turned into adults are unprepared to critically think and evaluate each scenario that arises in their lives with a fine-toothed comb, so to speak.

Now, everyone makes mistakes. We progress and learn from them on a case by case basis. Institutions, corporations and business are no different. But Government entities, business, and corporations should be held by high standards because they have the ability to affect tens of millions of people. With such power should come greater responsibility/accountability.

We are not seeing that with the CDC, however. What we are witnessing are incomprehensible actions that leave you nigh breathless in respect to their slated dictum.

One would figure such an institution would have the public’s well-being at heart. Such is not the case though.

Would a trustworthy institution in a position of authority collude with Big Pharma to conceal data on 3,500 miscarriages that took place from the H1N1?

Would a trustworthy institution in a position of authority misrepresent raw milk data, which has the ability to help tens of thousands of individuals?

Would a trustworthy institution in a position of authority continue the fallacy of antibody theory, which was exposed nigh five decades ago, and keep advocating for vaccinations when there is ample evidence of their extensive dangers?

Would a trustworthy institution in a position of authority opt to patent Ebola? A patent basically not only allows the person/institution that patented the invention to profit from it, but it also grants exclusive rights to them, thus preventing others from exploiting such ventures.

As they say, the plot thickens.

Knowing the above information, should we not be concerned?

Weigh the above carefully in your mind.   Ponder about what the ramifications are, because they are only the tip of the iceberg.  Keep in mind, the above examples are simply but a select few of a much larger collection of ‘mishaps’.

With that in mind, would YOU bet your LIFE and those of whom you love on such an institution?

Accused Batman shooter was seeing ex-Air Force psychiatrist before massacre

via: NaturalNews
Wednesday, August 08, 2012
By: Ethan A. Huff

[NaturalNews] Newly uncovered documents have revealed that James Holmes, the man who is being accused of murdering 12 people in cold blood and injuring 58 others at a midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises in Aurora, Colorado, on July 20, had apparently been seeing a psychiatrist prior to the tragic massacre. The U.K.’s Independent reports that 24-year-old Holmes had been under the care of Dr. Lynne Fenton, a psychiatrist at the University of Colorado (CU) who is also a member of the campus threat assessment team.

The information surfaced after Holmes’ attorneys filed a court order with an Arapahoe County district judge petitioning for prosecutors to turn over information about the contents of a package Holmes allegedly sent to Dr. Fenton in recent weeks. Reports indicate that the package, when discovered, was quickly confiscated by authorities, and the content kept under wraps. But because Holmes was a patient of Dr. Fenton, his attorneys are petitioning to have his private communications with her handed over to them and protected from exploitation.

During this time, various media sources have been leaking details about the supposed contents of the box, as well as a second box that Holmes allegedly sent. According to a recent Fox News report; for instance, one of the packages allegedly contained a notebook with drawings that outlined the plan for the massacre. A supposed “unnamed law enforcement source close the investigation” said the notebook, the existence of which has not been confirmed, contained images of stick figures shooting other stick figures.

Mainstream media engaged in full-scale Batman shooting misinformation campaign

But since Judge William Sylvester, who is presiding over the case, has issued a gag order on the case, none of this information can be confirmed or denied, and is merely conjecture. Those leaking it are also jeopardizing Holmes’ rights to due process and a fair trial by an unbiased jury by injecting potentially false notions about his behavior, which in turn casts him in the light of being guilty until proven innocent. And this is not, of course, how the American legal system is supposed to operate.

In response to the defense filings, prosecutors in the case have dubbed the leaked information as “factual errors,” and say that the law enforcement sources, at least the ones referenced by Fox News, are wholly “fake.” Because of the gag order, mainstream media sources are essentially free to report whatever they feel like reporting since authorities are not at liberty to confirm or deny any of it, which is turning the entire case into an overblown media circus.

Meanwhile, since the revelation concerning Holmes’ consultations with Dr. Fenton emerged, CU has greatly modified Dr. Fenton’s personal biography webpage, after removing it for several days. The school appears to have scrubbed the fact that Dr. Fenton had been reprimanded on several occasions for prescribing psychotropic drugs without valid prescriptions, some of which Holmes allegedly admitted he was taking at the time of his arrest outside the Century 16 theater.

There are also many holes in the case that scream “false flag,” or deliberate setup for an undisclosed but malicious purpose. Be sure to analyze for yourself the information we have gathered and presented in recent days:

China, Manufacturer of 50% of US Drugs, Arrests 2,000 for Counterfeit Drugs

via: NaturalSociety
by: Lisa Garber
August 7, 2012

Nearly 2,000 people have been detained and $180 million worth of fake pharmaceuticals seized in China’s latest crackdown. The detentions and seizures took place in late July but, in an effort to express its commitment to cleaning up Chinese industry’s tattered reputation, its Ministry of Public Security released the information on Sunday. The pharmaceuticals in question were counterfeit drugs for hypertension, diabetes, skin diseases, rabies, and even cancer.

Counterfeit Drugs – FDA Fails to Inspect Foreign Factories

China is one of the world’s biggest producers of fake pharmaceuticals. It is also one of the biggest producers of our drugs in America.

Although the Chinese government has made more and tightened existing regulations of late, it has much bad karma to convince consumers to forget. The government executed the director of its food and drug agency in 2007 for taking cash in exchange for approval of counterfeit, even deadly medication. Though this didn’t prevent the deaths of 81 people in the United States the very next year as a result of a tainted batch of heparin, a blood thinner.

Still, the Food and Drug Administration can’t be bothered to buy plane tickets to visit many of those or other foreign factories; a whopping 81% of them have never even been visited by an FDA inspector! It is no surprise so many counterfeit drugs are being circulated.

The Price Squeeze

The pharmaceutical industry is booming in China despite these disasters. Many provinces have even established bidding systems so drug companies can sell at rock bottom prices in exchange for hospital and pharmaceutical contracts.

So, how low can they go? In an example from earlier this year, China’s drug regulator stopped sales of 13 types of drugs with dangerous levels of chromium. How did it get there?  The capsules for these counterfeit drugs were made from leather scraps with industrial gelatin—and chromium—from the tanning process.

How to stay safe

How are we to protect ourselves against counterfeit, often deadly drugs when they are so rampantly made in faraway factories our own government doesn’t care to inspect?  Remember that every dollar is a vote. The government—and certainly Big Pharma—won’t count it, but your body will appreciate high quality supplements made of food-based ingredients without toxic fillers and synthetic ingredients.

Remember Hippocrates: “Let food be thy medicine.”  Many foods like turmeric and ginger have been found to work better than pharmaceuticals in helping treat many chronic diseases.

The Martial Flu: U.S. Pandemic Laws Align with International Health Regulations

via: ActivistPost
by: Justin Gross
Monday, August 6, 2012

All of the new vaccines are DNA vaccines which contaminate normal human DNA with patented GMOs, just as Monsanto has been doing to organic fields with pollen drift.

The public has not been informed of this or given legal papers to release their intellectual property rights over their own unique DNA.

But under GW Bush, whose family is deeply connected to the biotech/pharmaceutical industry that put Hitler into office, laws were put in place that would use the military to force such vaccines, and with unknown content, on the entire population, under the pretext of a flu.

The following went into effect under George Bush:

WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION checklist for influenza pandemic preparedness planning: Section 1.5.1 Legal and ethical issues –

‘During a pandemic, it may be necessary to overrule existing legislation or (individual) human rights. Examples are the enforcement of quarantine (overruling individual freedom of movement), use of privately owned buildings for hospitals, off-license use of drugs, compulsory vaccination or implementation of emergency shifts in essential services. These decisions need a legal framework to ensure transparent assessment and justification of the measures that are being considered, and to ensure coherence with international legislation (International Health Regulations). [Source]

Bush provided the pandemics laws that intersect with the WHO’s health regulations. Obama recently signed an executive order putting the US into alignment with international laws. The WHO has been the driver of covert sterilizing campaigns with vaccines around the world, and just threatened Pakistan for attempting to suspend Gates, WHO, and World Bank polio vaccines until the Pakistani government was sure the vaccines were safe and effective. The vaccines are causing mass paralysis there.

George Bush pushed through the pandemic laws in the US using the false fear that there would again be a pandemic like the 1918 flu pandemic. There was no flu pandemic in 1918. Millions died but they died because of the pharmaceutical industry’s “miracle drug,” aspirin, a highly toxic drug that can kill quickly when used in overdose, as well as a potent immunosuppressive which allowed common upper respiratory infections to deteriorate into deadly pneumonias. The millions of 1918-19 deaths are the result of pharmaceutical industry greed, and the collusion of government, medical authorities, military and corporations.

These same groups have gone many steps further under the Bush pandemic laws.

  • They have mandated a highly toxic, immunosuppressive “treatment” in advance, to every person in the country.
  • They have brought together government, military, medical “authorities,” and corporations in a financial arrangement.
  • All liability has been removed.
  • The vaccines themselves do not have to be tested (and thus not even known) in an emergency.
  • Any emergency does not have to be proved.

Medical establishment too dysfunctional to correct simple problems

via: NaturalNews
Tuesday, August 07, 2012
By: Willow Tohi

[NaturalNews] A few months ago, a simple breakdown in communication between doctors led to the death of a 12-year-old boy in New York. Approximately 100,000 people die each year as a result of errors in hospitals, according to a decade-old national panel. In addition to breakdowns in communication, patients continue to be harmed or killed by medical shortcuts and inadequate training. Germs and errors combined make going to the hospital the fourth leading cause of death in this country.

Other large industries, such as the airline industry, have come to rely on a series of safety checklists that act as a safety net. The Infallible Doctor complex has prevented the medical community from following suit. There are hundreds of cases that have been publicized of a similar nature: unfathomable mistakes (such as operating on the wrong body part) at medical facilities, resulting in ridiculously obvious solutions (identify the correct body part before starting the procedure), that are then ignored or found to be ineffective.

Communication breakdown

The New York boy was sent from the hospital with a raging infection, and neither his personal doctor nor his family were notified of his lab results. Last week, four months after his death, the medical center involved has decided to adopt new procedures in response, such as doctors should be notified immediately of abnormal lab results, and the hospital should call the patient and his doctor if he has already been sent home. Really? This is what they came up with after four months? Has the medical establishment gotten so large, so bureaucratic, that they need to form Common Sense committees and procedurize basic, common communication and human courtesies?

It’s not stupidity or maliciousness that leads to the shocking problems in the medical industry. It comes from the culture of an institution. Who owns the responsibility to make sure common sense is observed, that communication happens between collaborating doctors and facilities? Are we ready to demand that doctors realize that they too are human, and need some checks and balances to protect patients, as well as themselves?

Conflict of interest

Cancer is a billion dollar industry. Almost every proposition regarding cancer put on any ballot, passes. With so much money, Big Pharma and their lobbyists in Washington have far too much control and influence on the medical system in America. And their profits depend on America’s ill health. The medical industry went from merely dysfunctional to actually harmful when the Supreme Court ruled on the Citizen’s Untied case, giving personhood status to corporations. Now it reflects the corporate culture of caste system privilege, enslavement to corporate product and profit, along with indifference to the lower classes. Medical mishaps are merely opportunities for more treatment.

The Hippocratic Oath, historically taken by physicians, physician assistants, and other healthcare professionals upon completion of their credentials, swears to practice medicine ethically and honestly. It says, in part, that the practitioner swears to “never do harm to anyone.” It goes on to swear against “deadly medicine” and not “cutting for stone” – a.k.a. invasive surgery. How could anyone possibly keep this oath in the current system? What prescription does no harm? What invasive procedure is completely harmless?

In a world with a rich history of safe, effective, inexpensive medical alternatives, the establishment seems to think medicine isn’t viable unless it is a synthetic, toxic pill made by unscrupulous pharmaceutical giants. And even with the overwhelming evidence that the medical culture has devolved to be more about money and power than curing illness, we are now required to be a part of the broken, ineffective, dysfunctional mess.

The awareness that you and you alone benefit from your own health should motivate you to self-education and exercising your right of personal choice. Medical “science” tries to convince us that there is only one treatment for any given health challenge, but that is simply untrue. But you have to be willing to stand against the authoritarian dissent of the establishment and its followers; go against the flow, and accept the personal responsibility of your own health. It’s either that or get in the chute with the other sheep.

Deadly anemia drugs like Procrit made billions – FDA kept their dangers a secret to protect pharma profits

via: NaturalNews
Monday, August 06, 2012
By: J. D. Heyes

[NaturalNews] The agencies and bureaucracies of our Leviathan government were created for our own good, we are constantly told, which is also the excuse we’re given anytime a group of lawmakers or citizens calls for any of them to be dismantled.

That excuse may no longer hold water for the Food and Drug Administration which, according to a recent Washington Post report, could have some liability in covering for a drug that a growing body of research says is dangerous and deadly.

For many years, the report said, three drugs known as Epogen, Procrit and Aranesp were among the top-selling prescription drugs in the U.S., raking in more than $8 billion annually for a pair of Big Pharma corporations – Amgen and Johnson & Johnson. In fact, these two companies were stars among stars; for a number of years, Epogen was the single costliest medicine under Medicare, costing U.S. taxpayers as much as $3 billion a year.

“The trouble, as a growing body of research has shown, is that for about two decades, the benefits of the drug – including ‘life satisfaction and happiness’ according to the FDA-approved label – were wildly overstated, and potentially lethal side effects, such as cancer and strokes, were overlooked,” the Washington Post reported.

Shocking, to say the least, but there’s more.

Medicare researches last year said, in an 84-page study, that they found among most kidney patients – the original and largest market for the trio of drugs – no solid evidence the medications made anyone feel better, improved their chances of survival or even had any “clinical benefit” outside of elevating one statistic for red blood cell count.

So while the drug companies had made tens of billions in profits over more than two decades, much of it from unsuspecting taxpayers, millions of patients were given dangerous doses of the medications to no advantage.

How?

Economic incentives, willing participants, congressional liability

“To answer the question, The Washington Post obtained the agreements between the drug makers and the Food and Drug Administration, reviewed thousands of pages of transcripts and company reports, and relied on new academic research, some by doctors who once administered the drugs but now look askance at the drug makers’ original claims,” the paper reported.

The paper said part of the blame comes from economic incentives built into the U.S. healthcare system, which can lead to inefficiencies and potentially deadly uses for drugs. But there is more here than simply that.

Drug makers cannot and will not manufacture and market drugs at a loss, that much is a given. But the FDA, according to the Post’s report, shares as much blame as anyone for this travesty. So, too, does Congress.

The paper said Amgen launched a well-funded research and lobbying campaign that was ultimately successful to win “far-reaching approvals” from the FDA. But both companies held drug trials that obviously missed (or ignored) the dangers while touting benefits that, 22 years later, would be disclosed as unfounded.

They also took more than 10 years to fulfill research commitments to the FDA, which – finally – moved to reign in the largest doses of the drugs. The agency was then stifled in its efforts by a “high-powered lobbying effort” aimed at Congress until lawmakers forced regulators to back off.

‘It was just easy to do’

Sound familiar?

The paper also points an accusing finger at doctors and hospitals.

“Americans might like to think that doctors focus on only their health. But physicians and hospitals have to pay the bills, too, and, in some cases, the more they treat a patient, the more they earn. This was especially true in the case of the anemia drugs: The bigger the dose, the more they made,” said the Post.

Incentives offered to them by the drug makers to increase doses ultimately worked. By 2007, some 80 percent of 175,000 dialysis patients on Medicare were being given the drugs at levels above what the FDA believes now is safe.

“It was just so easy to do – you put this stuff in the patient’s arm, and you made thousands of dollars,” Charles Bennett, endowed chair at the Medication Safety and Efficacy Center of Economic Excellence at the University of South Carolina and a critic of the use of the drugs in cancer patients, told the paper. “An oncologist could make anywhere from $100,000 to $300,000 a year from this alone. And all the while they were told that it was good for the patient.”

Lethal chicken disease created by ‘gene-swapping’ vaccines – Harbinger of things to come?

via: NaturalNews
Sunday, August 05, 2012
By: Scott Morefield

[NaturalNews] In yet another example of mad science gone awry, approximately 7 to 17 percent of the chicken population of Australia’s two main chicken producing states, Victoria and New South Wales, has died as a result of two deadly new disease strains; strains created when three vaccines used to prevent the herpes virus infectious laryngotracheitis in chickens ‘unexpectedly’ swapped genes. The disease normally kills five percent of the chicken populations it infects, so in this case the ‘solution’ has turned out to be far worse than the original potential problem.

In Australia there are usually two similar live virus vaccinations against the virus, which causes mild to severe respiratory disease (difficulty breathing, sneezing, coughing) in chickens. However, because of shortages in 2008/2009, a new European vaccine was introduced. Because of the use of multiple live virus vaccines in the same poultry population, an entirely new, more virulent, disease has been created, one that results in death for a significant percentage of the population it was meant to protect. According to the journal Science, “These findings highlight the risks of using multiple different attenuated herpes virus vaccines, or vectors, in the same populations.”

Joanne Devlin, a lecturer at the School of Veterinary Science at the University of Melbourne and the lead author of the paper detailing the problem, wrote, “To try to understand the origin of the new field strains, what we did is sequence the entire genome of the new field strains and we also sequenced the genome of the vaccine strains at the time.” Similar elements to the two vaccines were found in the new viruses.

Move on, nothing to see here

Devlin also acknowledges that the new, deadly variants were possible because the vaccines contained live viruses. Not to worry; however. The University of Melbourne’s Ian Gust assures us that this couldn’t possibly occur in humans because chickens and people are vaccinated using different methods and different strains of the herpes virus. Since the herpes virus is delivered with three entirely different diseases, measles, mumps, and rubella, we are told it cannot breed across various species. Currently, there are five live virus vaccines given to humans – measles, mumps, rubella, varicella, and polio. What could possibly go wrong?
