GSK whistleblower says Glaxo Marketing VP ‘Sir’ Andrew Witty was deeply involved in massive criminal cover-up

[NaturalNews] The recent landmark ruling against drug giant GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), which as we recently reported led to a massive criminal fine of more than $3 billion and a guilty plea by the company of committing felony crimes (http://www.naturalnews.com/036499_Glaxo_whistleblower_bribery.html), was followed by an apology from GSK Vice President of Marketing “Sir” Andrew Witty for the company’s “past” failures. But according to whistleblower Gregory Thorpe, the apology is meaningless, as Witty had been working for GSK during the years when the company was proven to have been engaged in illegal activity, and was more than likely involved in it.

Not only that, but Thorpe was the one punished by GSK for coming forward with the truth, a retribution that he has had to sustain for more than a decade, while Witty was recently “knighted” by the U.K. government for his supposed service to the British economy and pharmaceutical industry. If anything, Witty’s ridiculous apology is nothing more than a lame attempt at shifting blame from himself to supposed “past” scapegoats, all the while claiming that GSK is now a new company that operates honestly.

Thorpe; however, says that he and Blair Hamrick were the ones that tried to change GSK for the better by coming forward with evidence that the pharmaceutical giant was engaged in a massive criminal enterprise that involved illegally marketing drugs, bribing doctors, and drugging children. And rather than change, the corrupt-to-the-core leadership team at GSK, which included Witty, put Thorpe and his family through years of hell for exposing the truth.

“[Witty] calls [the corruption] echoes of the past, another era, another company, yet he was there,” wrote Thorpe in the comment section of a recent article on the GSK scandal published by the U.K.’s Yorkshire Post (YP). Like most other mainstream reports on the GSK scandal, YP glosses over Witty’s potential involvement in the GSK scandal, and all the corresponding unanswered questions, and seems to accept his apology as valid and sufficient.

“Did he participate? Did he know? What did he know? Why did he not come forward? Why won’t he answer these questions?” asks Thorpe about Witty’s likely participation in the GSK scandal. “I blew the whistle, I was tossed out after 24 years with the company. I was terminated and retaliated against for the last 11 years … GSK covered up their conduct, got caught, and now Witty is ‘sorry’?”

“They took 11 years from me and my family suffered. I was blackballed in the pharmaceutical business. In the meantime, Witty was ‘knighted.'”

You can read Thorpe’s full comments at the bottom of the following article:

If that comment gets deleted, here’s our captured screen shot of it:

$3 billion may seem like a lot, but it is nothing for a massive company like GSK

Even though it represents the largest criminal penalty in pharmaceutical history, the $3 billion fine levied against GSK is mere pocket change in the bigger picture of the company’s overall financial assets and revenues. GSK openly admitted to engaging in a longstanding, organized criminal enterprise that likely cost thousands of people their lives — does a measly $3 billion fine and a phony apology really serve justice in light of this?

According to the allegations originally filed by Thorpe and Hamrick against GSK, which the company has now pleaded guilty to, GSK’s entire marketing strategy involved exploiting and defrauding government health programs; illegally promoting drugs for off-label uses that included marketing them to children; and bribing doctors to promote drugs to patients that did not need them in exchange for illicit kickbacks.

You can watch the recent interview between Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, and whistleblower Blair Hamrick, where Hamrick explains this and much more, here:
http://tv.naturalnews.com/v.asp?v=1FE6404520AA77A877753AA936722510

Since Witty held numerous high-level positions at GSK during the time in which the company was proven to have engaged in the most colossal criminal conspiracy yet unveiled in the pharmaceutical industry, he had to have, at the very least, been aware of what was going on at the company — and more than likely, he was actively involved in it. But either way, Witty did not come forward and speak up about GSK’s crimes, nor did he defend Thorpe and Hamrick in trying to turn the company around by exposing its corruption.

Instead, Thorpe and Hamrick made the decision to do the right thing by themselves, and consequently suffered years of torment by pharmaceutical big-wigs like Witty that continued to hide their company’s evil deeds from the public. And now that the truth has been exposed in plain sight, Witty and his company are getting off scot-free with a canned apology and a relatively small, at least for GSK, financial penalty?

Major Physicians Group Implores Exemption From Smart Meters – Are You On the List?

via: ActivistPost
by: Heather Callaghan
Thursday, July 19, 2012

Are you on the doctors’ list of people who should be exempt from Smart Meters? 

In the last couple years, paying electricity residents have witnessed a startling use of force regarding installation of Smart Meters. This is after complaining to Public Utility Commissions about legitimate and serious health problems that were absent before the installations.

More alarming, is that doctors’ notices on behalf of their patients are completely dismissed. One doctor implored help from a commission that the situation wouldn’t be so urgent if patients had the ability to choose another company or have the ability to opt-out (of something they never asked for or actually protested in the first place).

But, tables are turning as awareness grows and doctors, researchers, and activists are joining forces to resist the Smart Meter invasion.

The prestigious American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) has just issued a report emphasizing that patients with any of myriad health issues be accommodated to avoid not only having Smart Meters installed on their own properties, but to be accommodated also for their neighbors’ Smart Meters.

The report asks for doctors to recognize EMF/RF exposure in their patients, the cumulative effects, and especially the effects of Smart Grid technology.

Alternative media blows the lid on Big Pharma’s massive bribery network

via: NaturalNews
Wednesday, July 18, 2012
by Mike Adams

[NaturalNews] Two of the most influential alternative media organizations on the ‘net — InfoWars.com and NaturalNews.com — have blown the lid wide open on Big Pharma’s massive bribery network. Through exclusive interviews with pharma insiders, InfoWars and NaturalNews have done what the mainstream media refuses to do: grant a platform to credible whistleblowers who are exposing the systematic, criminal Big Pharma bribing of doctors who willingly accept kickbacks to write prescriptions for high-profit pharmaceuticals.

These revelations are surfacing on the heels of the drug industry’s largest settlement in history: GlaxoSmithKline’s $3 billion fine and guilty plea to committing felony crimes (http://www.naturalnews.com/036416_GlaxoSmithKline_fraud_criminal_char…). NaturalNews editor Mike Adams (the Health Ranger) was able to connect with one of the key whistleblowers who initiated that nine-year DOJ investigation, and he went on the record with shocking allegations about off-label pharmaceutical marketing and the systematic bribery of doctors (http://www.naturalnews.com/036499_Glaxo_whistleblower_bribery.html).

The video interview with Blair Hamrick is available at:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y_RJ9QPG70U
and:
http://tv.naturalnews.com/v.asp?v=1FE6404520AA77A877753AA936722510

Blair was also interviewed by Adams on the Alex Jones Show (www.InfoWars.com), where he revealed additional information about Glaxo’s activities such as the “coaching” of pharmaceutical sales reps to enroll doctors in elaborate kickback schemes. The video of that interview is available below.

Caller blows the whistle on the physician bribery underground

Following Blair’s interview on the Alex Jones Show, a woman who identified herself as “Ally” called in to the show and described, in authentic language and tone, how she had worked inside a company that managed the “kickback” relationships between drug companies and doctors. On live national radio, she proceeded to describe details about how doctors would earn up to $6,000 a day as part of Big Pharma’s speakers bureaus. In her own words, below, she explains how doctors and physicians lined up to cash in on the bribery payoffs, happy to sell their souls to Big Pharma while pimping out drugs that were often shown to be dangerous — even deadly — to the consuming public.

They Want To Sterilize American Women: Sterilization Won’t Cost Women A Penny Under Obamacare

via: AmericanDream
July 12, 2012

Did you know that sterilization will not cost women a penny under Obamacare?  A new regulationthat goes into effect on August 1st requires that health plans cover sterilization for all women with “reproductive capacity”.  That includes teenage girls.  According to the new regulation, women must have access to sterilization “without having to pay a co-payment, co-insurance or a deductible.”  So women will not have to pay a single penny out of pocket if they want to get sterilized.  Of course this sterilization mandate will make health insurance more expensive for all of us, but the social engineers in Washington D.C. feel that increasing access to sterilization is a very important public policy goal.  So why are they doing this?  They are doing this because they love death.  They truly believe that they are saving the planet by reducing human numbers.  That is why “family planning” is always at the very heart of the “green agenda”.  They want to sterilize women because that will help keep the population down.  And if there are less people running around, there will be less of us to ruin “their planet” with all of our pollution.

The new Obamacare regulation requires health insurance policies to offer 100% coverage for all “approved contraceptive methods, sterilization procedures, and patient education and counseling for all women with reproductive capacity.”

But to fully understand what is going on, you have to look at this in context with what is being implemented all over the globe.

Have you heard of Agenda 21?  It is an international effort coordinated by the United Nations to make the world a more “sustainable” place in the 21st century.

To the social engineers at the forefront of this effort, the number one threat to “sustainable development” is overpopulation.  That is why population control is one of the central pillars of Agenda 21.

So all over the globe, family planning programs are being pushed and funded by the United Nations.  In many UN-funded family planning facilities all over the planet sterilizations are being offered for free.

The United Nations seems absolutely obsessed with population issues.  In particular, they seem quite determined to get women in poorer countries to have less children.  For example, the March 2009 U.N. Population Division policy brief began with the following statement….

What would it take to accelerate fertility decline in the least developed countries?

A statement like that should be setting off all kinds of alarm bells in your head.

Questions like that are only a few steps away from all-out genocide.

But the social engineers at the United Nations are so obsessed with “saving the earth” that the fact that human lives are being destroyed in the process does not seem to bother them.

Many in the environmental movement believe that the number one problem facing the earth is climate change, and many of them also believe that carbon emissions being produced by human activity are the number one cause of climate change.

So that makes all of us the number one enemy of the planet.

Report: 83 percent of doctors have considered quitting over Obamacare

via: DailyCaller
by: Sally Nelson
July 9, 2012

Eighty-three percent of American physicians have considered leaving their practices over President Barack Obama’s health care reform law, according to a survey released by the Doctor Patient Medical Association.

The DPMA, a non-partisan association of doctors and patients, surveyed a random selection of 699 doctors nationwide. The survey found that the majority have thought about bailing out of their careers over the legislation, which was upheld last month by the Supreme Court.

Even if doctors do not quit their jobs over the ruling, America will face a shortage of at least 90,000 doctors by 2020. The new health care law increases demand for physicians by expanding insurance coverage. This change will exacerbate the current shortage as more Americans live past 65.

By 2025 the shortage will balloon to over 130,000, Len Marquez, the director of government relations at the American Association of Medical Colleges, told The Daily Caller.

“One of our primary concerns is that you’ve got an aging physician workforce and you have these new beneficiaries — these newly insured people — coming through the system,” he said. “There will be strains and there will be physician shortages.”
