The government knows it’s a medical killing machine

The government knows it’s a medical killing machine

by Jon Rappoport

October 5, 2013

Here are four smoking guns that substantiate the title of this article.

Smoking gun #1: As I detailed in my two previous articles (click here and here), Dr. Barbara Starfield’s article in the July 26, 2000, Journal of the American Medical Association, “Is US Health Really the Best in the World?”, spelled out the damage:

The US medical system kills 225,000 Americans per year. That’s well over two MILLION deaths per decade.

The US government supports, in numerous ways, this system. And now, through the implementation of Obamacare, many more previously uninsured Americans will enter the killing fields.

Dr. Starfield’s data are not classified. They’re not a state secret. Any doctor or medical bureaucrat has access to them.

Yet nothing of note is being done to remedy the ongoing crime.

Smoking gun #2: Starfield’s report indicated that, every year in the US, 106,000 Americans die as a result of FDA-approved medical drugs.

The FDA is the only agency tasked with certifying these drugs as safe and effective. With such certification, the drugs enter the public pipeline.

On the FDA’s own website, under the heading, “Why Learn About Adverse Drug Reactions,” appears the following text: “Over 2 MILLION ADRs [Adverse Drug Reactions] yearly; 100,000 DEATHS yearly; ADRs 4th leading cause of death…”

Astonishingly, the FDA takes no responsibility for any of this. They, and only they, can approve the drugs as safe and effective. They list the numbers of deaths and maimings, and they never admit culpability.

Smoking gun #3: It’s common knowledge that there is a revolving door between the FDA and drug companies. Employees come and go from one organization/agency to another. The FDA and the pharmaceutical industry are, in significant respects, partners.

For years, there were reports of payoffs and pressure, at the FDA, to grant approval to drugs that were, in fact, harmful and dangerous.

Then, in 2009 and again in July 2012, a scandal erupted. As Truthout reported, it focused on “an institutionalized FDA spying program on its own scientists, law makers, reporters and academics that included an enemies list…”

At the heart of the scandal: FDA pressure on its own people to approve medical devices that were dangerous.

Truthout took a further step. It interviewed Ronald Cavanagh, a former drug reviewer for the FDA. (July 29, 2012, “Former FDA Reviewer Speaks Out About Intimidation and Marginalizing of Safety”)

In a stunning interview with Truthout’s Martha Rosenberg, Cavanagh, exposed the FDA as a relentless criminal mafia protecting its client, Big Pharma, with a host of mob strategies.

Cavanagh: “…widespread racketeering, including witness tampering and witness retaliation.”

I was threatened with prison.”

One [FDA] manager threatened my children…I was afraid that I could be killed for talking to Congress and criminal investigators.”

Cavanagh reviewed new drug applications made to the FDA by pharmaceutical companies. He was one of the holdouts at the Agency, who insisted that the drugs had to be safe and effective before being released to the public. That’s why he was under the gun.

Honest appraisal wasn’t part of the FDA culture, and Cavanagh swam against the tide, until he realized his life and the life of his children might be on the line.

What was his secret and unofficial task at the FDA supposed to be? “Drug reviewers were clearly told not to question drug companies and that our job was to approve drugs.” In other words, rubber stamp them. Say the drugs were safe and effective when they were not.

Cavanagh’s revelations are astonishing. He recalls a meeting where a drug-company representative flat-out stated that his company had paid the FDA for a new-drug approval. Paid for it. As in bribe.

Cavanagh remarks that the drug pyridostigmine, given to US troops to prevent the later effects of nerve gas, “actually increased the lethality” of certain nerve agents.

Cavanagh recalls being given records of safety data on a drug that was up for approval—and then his bosses told him which sections not to read. Obviously, they knew the drug was dangerous and they knew exactly where, in the reports, that fact would be revealed.

The FDA is an ongoing criminal enterprise, and any government official, serving in any capacity, who has become aware of it and has not taken action, is an accessory to mass poisoning of the population.

The Matrix Revealed

Smoking gun #4: Before the FDA considers approving a new drug, studies and clinical trials have to be done. The drug companies do those clinical trials and submit the results to the FDA.

Obviously, the results look good; otherwise the FDA wouldn’t be able to certify the drugs as safe and effective.

This raises the specter of research fraud—because, since the drugs kill 106,000 Americans every year, how can published studies praising these drugs be authentic and credible?

On January 15, 2009, the NY Review of Books published a devastating quote from a woman who, for 20 years, edited the most prestigious medical journal in the world:

It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.”

(Marcia Angell, MD, “Drug Companies and Doctors: A story of Corruption.” NY Review of Books, Jan. 15, 2009.)

Here is another quote of a similar nature, also published in the NY Review of Books (May 12, 2001, Helen Epstein, “Flu Warning: Beware of Drug Companies”):

Six years ago, John Ioannidis, a professor of epidemiology at the University of Ioannina School of Medicine in Greece, found that nearly half of published articles in scientific journals contained findings that were false.”

Here’s another quote from the same

Last year, GlaxoSmithKline’s diabetes drug Avandia was linked to thousands of heart attacks, and earlier in the decade, the company’s antidepressant Paxil was discovered to exacerbate the risk of suicide in young people. Merck’s painkiller Vioxx was also linked to thousands of heart disease deaths. In each case, the scientific literature gave little hint of these dangers.”

And finally, here is yet another statement from Marcia Angell, former editor of The New England Journal of Medicine:

A review of seventy-four clinical trials of antidepressants, for example, found that thirty-seven of thirty-eight positive studies [that praised the drugs] were published. But of the thirty-six negative studies, thirty-three were either not published or published in a form that conveyed a positive outcome.”

It turns out that the informational pipeline that feeds the entire perception of pharmaceutical medicine is a rank fraud.

Exit From the Matrix

Could any major newspaper add up these quotes and launch an all-out attack on the massive crimes surrounding medical studies? Of course. And that attack, if carried out long enough, would shake the pillars of the Church of Modern Medicine. But it doesn’t happen.

Neither do we see extensive Congressional hearings on the horrendous effects of the US medical system. The Dept. of Justice does nothing, when they should be making mass arrests and laying on criminal prosecutions.

They know the scope of the medical killings and maimings. They choose to do nothing.

And now, into the maw of this dragon of death, will step millions of previously uninsured Americans, glad recipients of Obamacare.

    The FDA and several MDs destroyed my intellect.

  2. The medical system has killed many more Americans than Muslim terrorists (aka CIA assets). With Obamacare its bound to get much worse.

  3. AwakenedLaurie says:

    Thanks Jon…another eye opener

    All three letter departments of government are corrupt to the core…this reality is built on lie over lie over lie, one big heaping pile of lies…it is truly amazing it has lasted this long.

    once awakened, one wants to run as far away as possible from the brainwashed medical community called health care….doctors are indocrinated into nothing but a bunch of pill pushers….ever try discussing diet and natural supplements and the doctor get this glazed look on their face and shuts down for that is not a part of their health vocabulary….all are taught to know the prescription tablet and what toxic pills to push from their large toxic pill bible….

    ironic that this is called health care…the whole medical system is broken from start to finnish and built on nothing but lies and GREED which now seem to be considered the normal way of doing business with these nasty dark forces in power…this discusting fairy tale science is killing us all….

    a recent study showed those without health care insurance were actually much healthier than those that the medical system could get their paws on,

    There lots of problems, and it’s easy to point out problems, but how to fix things? There are two possible fixes that I can see. The first is clear and simple. Socialized medicine. We need only compare the American system to socialized medicine around the modern world, to see how much better socialized medicine works. But the American people have a strict religion against anything socialized – even if it works.Those who stand to lose from socialized medicine are the ones with the loudest voices – and no health, the big corporations.So that’s not likely.

    Most of the money made by the big drug companies is not spent on drugs that create health – it is spend on drugs that treat (but never cure) symptoms of illness. Frankly, drugs don’t create health, they don’t improve health, they are all about illness. And the Americans have the biggest drug industry in the world – so they have the most drug illness. Are we surprised?

    The second solution, and the only alternative that makes sense is to study health instead of illness. We need to study health, in a true scientific fashion. Health is NOT the opposite of illness. Health exists when you are healthy and when you are sick. A few illnesses can be ‘cured’ by drugs. But any illness that is currently listed as ‘incurable’ is probably an illness that can only be cured by health.

    Millions of dollars are spent developing and testing, buying and selling drugs that do not create or improve healthiness. We should not be surprised to see that the Americans spend the most on drugs, with the least results, and the most adverse drug effects. Fixing the FDA is not the solution. The FDA can only approve, or dis-allow specific drugs. .Better drugs are like better guns. Useful in some situations, maybe even capable of saving lives in some situations. But drugs, like guns, are a ‘quick fix’ – even when they work.

    Health is slow. And health is hard work. Most of what we ‘know’ about health today is unscientific nonsense. We need to slow down and study health as a science instead of jumping from one illness one drug, to another, looking for a quick fix.
    to your health, tracy

      Socialized medicine means some thug points a gun at my head and says I have to pay for your “health care” and I (and everyone else) have to use your system whether we like it or not. And whether we even believe it is even a viable system. Socialized healthcare means that the very same “government” who is killing us now will have total control over our bodies. No thank you.

      Your idea of focusing on health instead of illness is right on the money. I lost my “health” insurance several years ago – it was one of the best things that ever happened to me. I was forced me to take responsibility for my own health. I spent a lot of time learning about the whole corrupt system and how health really works. That search lead to people like Jon, Mercola, Weston Price, etc, and to sites like yours (

      It seems to me that if people knew the truth, we wouldn’t even need a health care “system” – we would simply live healthy lifestyles and could simply pay cash when we need to see a healer.

      Weston Price studied many “primitive” peoples who didn’t have health care systems, didn’t devote huge segments of their labor to “health care” and were infinitely healthier that most Americans. We should learn from them, but the same control freaks who would be the operators of socialized medicine make sure that that kind if information is suppressed as best they can.

    • Bunny says:

      There are many other articles about the pitfalls of socialized medicine. You might like to ck them out.

      If our government would allow, or insist upon, healthy practices raising our food we be a healthier nation and not require as many doctor visits or prescriptions for drugs.

      Jeff’s reply makes sense.

    The doctors that peddle big pharmas drugs ruined my health before I researched what they were prescribing and quit taking them. LOOKOUT for Coumadin (Warfarin) as it will destroy your bones. Symvastatin will kill you too, as well as many others that they get a kickback for prescribing.
    Research them before you take them.

  7. Kay Shergold says:

    Another brilliant article.

  8. stonehillady says:

    It blows me away that so many people are brainwashed and say modern medicine extends lives, when in fact it is not so, at all. If, with the technology we do have and if we allowed scientist to explore the plants benefits to cure disease and infection we could imagine to live & be superior health compared to what has happened to us using chemical compounds that should NEVER be our bodies to begin with.

  9. Luke says:

    Excellent article. The fox has been guarding the hen house for a very long time. Since I am older and have a spinal cord injury, medications unfortunately are part of my life. I watch closely the medications i take and the medications the VA doctors suggest. Obamacare will likely be the early death of me. It is a ugly world and I certainly look forward to the age to come.

    Another good one, Jon. You are a voice crying in the wilderness. But you are not ineffective. Keep it up.

    and . . . all the pharma advertising (unethical to sell Rx to the public directly) is a tax deduction for them. So these awful tv ads are basically free for them to air.

    in the uk we have the Liverpool death path way, hospitals making money out of quick deaths, meeting targets, just like social services targets on child stealing by the state brought in under labour government tony Blair war criminal. hidden agenda to kill us off.
    common purpose behind it, N.L.P. students in the NHS are given study skills at home, not in the hospital with other students, to save money. so much for patient care and asking questions to another human being. no doubt all of this has come from the united nations agenda 21

    Like when they smashed the Raymond Royal Rife machines and hid away their technology that gave a 100% effective cure rate for cancer, as well as many other diseases, these Boshevik NWO types need their killing machine to delete anyone they please, anytime, and make it look like they were trying to ‘help’ them. Looks better than firing squads, you can’t prove a thing, it is just the Red Revolution killing frenzy unleashed upon the world of Gentiles, as usual.

    225,000 deaths per year caused by our medical system … more than total deaths from influenza (even the wrong statistic provided by the CDC). Sad.

  21. #bigpharma causes more deaths than all the wars put together
