The nefarious nature of the FDA, much like the CDC, begun to be exposed quite some time ago. Part 1 below covers evidence of the FDA’s subversive tactics. Part two adds more evidence to the matter at hand.
In the spirit of continuing to show the reliability [or lack thereof] of some government institutions, and the blind trust some people have of the establishment, we are going to take a deeper look at the Food & Drug Administration [FDA]
The FDA, which was founded on June 30, 1906, features on its website the slogan ‘Protecting and Promoting Your Health.’ Have they been up to the task?
Unbeknownst to the public are the plethora of instances – going back decades – in which the FDA has conducted itself directly against the American Public’s interests.
We really need to ascertain the true reputation of institutions that not only have untold power, but can also guide millions astray if we remain averse to looking at the compendium of facts.
For totality’s sake, examples of this will be quoted at length from Jeff T. Bowel’s intriguing book, The Miraculous Results Of Extremely High Doses Of The Sunshine Hormone Vitamin D3:
“In 1952, the FDA [Food & Drug Administration] tried to outlaw the introduction of anything “new” into foods and consumables unless given advance affirmative permissible by the FDA. This power grab was rejected by the courts.
“In 1957 the FDA started prosecution of vendors of “malnutrition remedies” [aka vitamins] and began using the term quack.
“In 1960 the FDA tried to limit the amount of folic acid in vitamins to .4 of a milligram even though years later this amount would be found to be too low and higher amounts were recommended for pregnant mothers to prevent neural tube defects in their newborns.
“In 1966 again the FDA tried to restrict access to vitamins by the food industry by proposing new controls on Vitamin D fortification
“In 1973 the FDA banned the sale of higher dose Vitamin A and Vitamin D Pills. This was later challenged by Linus Pauling, the Nobel Prize winning chemist, a friend of the court in a law against the FDA.
“In 1974 Congress reigned in the FDA’s overreach and forced them to regulate vitamins as food and not drugs.
“In 1976 Congress also passed a bill blocking the FDA and the drug industry’s attempts to block the sale of high dose vitamins.
“In 1977 FDA dropped its plans to require a doctor’s prescription for high dose vitamins.
“But in 1979, the FDA tried again to get some vitamins classified as non-prescription drugs…another small first step towards later banning.”
“The FDA with Texas state health inspectors raided vitamin retailers/health food stores across the state and seized inventories and put people in jail accusing the businessmen of making false health claims about vitamins.”
“FDA planned to regulate vitamins again and health claims about them.”
“Finally: in 1994 the people of the US had had enough and they forced Congress to pass the US Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act [DSHEA] which is basically “health-freedom” legislation. DSHEA defines supplements as foods, and puts the onus on the United States Food And Drug Administration to prove that a supplement poses significant or unreasonable risk of harm rather than on the manufacturer to prove the supplement’s safety, reversing the burden of evidence required of medicines.
“In 2011, some corrupt, bought and paid for, nanny-statist US politicians tried to back door maneuver to regain control over vitamins and supplements by the FDA with their Introduction of the Dietary Supplement Labeling Act.
“Their intent was to overthrow the effect of the 1994 DSHEA law which led to consumers having accesss to dietary supplements. They wanted to change what was essentially a notification process into a costly approval process. The net effect of the proposed regulation was to reclassify many nutritional compounds currently on the market as new dietary ingredients requiring FDA approval. Luckily for the US population this recent power grab attempt also failed. But you can bet the corrupted, nanny-state politicians owned by Big Pharma will be at it again sooner or later – stay tuned.”
The above list is not exhaustive. It does however show more than ample evidence of the oppressive nature of the FDA.
Can an institution such as this going against its edict be counted on to do the right thing even though its extensive history says otherwise?

[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:

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.

[NaturalNews] The Batman-murder psy-op is expanding.
It aims to blow up one horrible crime into a vicious general lie.
Now we’re told that a U of Colorado “threat assessment team” was aware of “problems with James Holmes” in June, a month before he committed murder and mayhem in the Aurora theater.
The covert op is unfolding. “Threat assessment team” is a way of claiming that problems Holmes was having are not unique to him; in fact, this is a society-wide problem. Otherwise, why would a threat assessment team exist in the first place?
And what is the supposed problem? Mental illness. It’s a chronic epidemic.
The subliminal psyop asserts that derangement is in the nature of the human condition; more specifically, it’s in the nature of the brain.
“Threat assessment team” becomes a symbol that lets the public know the Batman murders are a symptom of a wider situation. According to the promoted story line, we the people need threat assessment teams, and not just at the U of Colorado.
The op called the Aurora massacre isn’t just about taking people’s guns away. It’s about inventing a pressing need for controlling mental illness before it manifests as violence.
And once that fallacious concept is planted, the psyop pros can not only suggest we have to snitch on “suspicious behavior,” they can demand the government expand threat assessment throughout society in order to make predictions and grab people and “treat” them before they spin out of control and do something horrible.
Who assesses and predicts threat? Who develops algorithms that can identify potential murderers among us? Psychiatrists.
In 1988, in my book, AIDS INC., I warned that fascism would stand the best chance of spreading across the world through medical operations, because “medical science” flies no partisan political banners, seems to take no side, appears to be all about objective research and healing.
So YOU are reinvented as a potential Batman murderer. You could go off. You could snap. You could fall victim to a brain malfunction. You could give way to your darker impulses. No one is immune.
Therefore, I have to be protected from you, and you have to be protected from me.
That’s the lie and that’s the op.
What is the op hiding? The fact that the psychiatric drugs cause violence. It’s not mental illness. It’s the drugs used to treat invented and concocted and fabricated “mental disorders.”
Most dangerous drug in the world can block free will, wipe memory – Was it involved in Batman shooting?

[NaturalNews] The borrachero tree, which is marked by beautiful white and yellow blossoms that droop ever so innocuously from the plant’s slender branches, holds a secret that few people outside northern South America know about. The tree’s seeds, flowers, and pollen possess hallucinogenic chemical substances that, when inhaled or consumed, are capable of eliminating a person’s free will, and turning him or her into a mindless zombie that can be fully controlled without any inhibitions.
Back in May, the U.K.’s Daily Mail ran a report on the borrachero tree, also known as the “drunken binge” tree, explaining how a substance derived from it, scopolamine, blocks a person’s ability to form memories, and temporarily inhibits his ability to make free will choices. When inhaled or consumed, in other words, scopolamine can turn any person into a robot that will do whatever another person tells him to do, even if it means robbing his own house.
“The drug … turns people into complete zombies and blocks memories from forming,” wrote the U.K.’s Daily Mail about scopolamine, which is technically a refined, chemically-altered version of the natural, mind-altering substances found in the borrachero tree. Scopolamine is often used in Colombia and elsewhere by criminals to mind-control others for the purpose of committing crimes.
“Scopolamine is a drug like no other. Nothing can compare,” said Demencia Black, a Colombian drug dealer, to Vice‘s Ryan Duffy during an interview that was later compiled into a full-length, investigatory documentary. “You could be walking … and suddenly ‘poof’ (implying that you quickly blow scopolamine powder in someone’s face) … with just that flash the person is totally drugged.”
“You wait a minute and when you see it kick in, then you know that you own that person. You can guide them wherever you want. It’s like they’re a child. You say, ‘Take me to your house, give me your checkbook, take out your savings, give me your credit card numbers,’ just like that.”
This is precisely what happened to a woman named Carolina who was drugged with scopolamine and apparently told to rob her own house, and hand over the belongings to her captors. Though she does not remember any of it, Carolina says she happily gathered all of her belongings, as well as her boyfriend’s savings and camera equipment, and helped load it up into the vehicles of her captors.
Carolina counts herself blessed, despite her losses, as many others have had much worse things done to them while under the influence of scopolamine. Reports indicate that scopolamine is often used for much worse crimes, including as a means by which to influence a person to commit more atrocious acts like rape or even murder.
You can watch the complete, two-part scopolamine investigation by Vice at: http://www.dailymail.co.uk
(As a warning, the film contains language and other content that is inappropriate for children).
Was the Batman shooting a result of scopolamine, or other similar mind-control drugs?
All of this information about scopolamine brings to mind the recent Batman massacre in Colorado which, as we reported on recently, does not seem to match the official story (http://www.naturalnews.com). Incongruous evidence and conflicting eyewitness reports have led many to wonder whether James Holmes, the man being blamed for the crimes, was under the influence of mind-control drugs during the incident that caused him to become the convenient scapegoat for a much more sinister agenda instigated by outside forces.

[NaturalNews] People don’t get it. The media don’t get it and they don’t want to get it. Billions of dollars are riding on the drugs Dr. Lynne Fenton may have prescribed to her patient, James Holmes, the accused Batman shooter.
And when billions of dollars in potentially lost revenue are hanging in the balance, the interested parties take action. They’re serious about their money. They don’t screw around.
You see, if James Holmes was, for example, taking Prozac, all of a sudden no one wants to take it. If doctors prescribe it to patients, the patients say, “Hey, wasn’t this the drug that nutcase took before he killed all those people in the theater?”
And that’s not all. Congress holds hearings, not because they want to, but because they want to look like they’re doing the right thing. And at those hearings, all sorts of nasty stuff comes out about Prozac. It’s big news. The studies that showed the drug was dangerous, that it could and would cause people to commit suicide and homicide. Boom. More bad press for the manufacturer. More investigations. More lost revenue.
So right now, in Aurora, there are pharmaceutical people on the scene. Not just low-level goofballs, but competent investigators. They want to know what drugs James Holmes was prescribed. They need to know. And behind the scenes, people with clout are making phone calls. These pharma types are talking to government agents and it’s crazy time and damage-control time, and nobody is laughing. This is a high-stakes game. WHAT DRUGS WAS HOLMES TAKING?
There is pressure on both attorneys in the case, too. And the cops. With an insanity plea lurking in the wings, Holmes’ medical records could very well see the light of day. That would let everybody know what the drugs were. So somebody is calling the governor of Colorado, and other state officials, and they’re trying to maneuver and manipulate the legal process, to make the medical records vanish.
Come on. This isn’t just a murder case. Now it’s about money. Big pharma lawyers are reading up on Colorado law to find loopholes, ways to get around revealing Holmes’ medical history.
Holmes is now a pawn. He’s the nowhere kid who is going to be shuttled around on the game board to save the drug money for the people who own it.
The money is dirty. It always was. It’s filthy. It’s been made on the backs of people who have died at the rate of 100,000 a year in the US alone. That’s a million people per decade—pharmaceutically caused deaths. The heads of these drug companies and their allied banks are Mafiosa. They inflict more human damage in a day than all the goombahs who have ever shot up pizza joints on Mulberry Street or dealt narcotics to addicts across the world, since Sicily puts itself on the map as the center of the Cosa Nostra.
