A message to Libertarians about the FDA

A message to Libertarians about the FDA

by Jon Rappoport

August 18, 2015

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Power Outside The Matrix, click here.)

“When I ran for a seat in the US Congress in 1994, I was very aggressive in demanding that we go after the FDA as a rogue criminal agency. Others, at the time, who were in favor of Health Freedom, said I should dial back my rhetoric; all we needed was a good law that would protect our right to take nutritional supplements. They were wrong then, and they’re still wrong.” (Running for Congress, Jon Rappoport)

Libertarians see big government as an obstruction to a free-market economy.

Some Libertarians believe the FDA is unnecessarily restraining commerce by driving up the cost of drugs and slow-tracking the approval of new drugs.

This is not how the game works. The FDA has clients, and those clients are the drug companies. On the whole, the FDA speeds up its drug approvals and thereby unleashes a torrent of toxic compounds on the public, killing, at a conservative estimate, 100,000 Americans every year, or a million Americans per decade.

The FDA is aiding and abetting criminal companies.

There are various solutions to this ongoing catastrophe that would depend on the basic honesty of Big Pharma. That honesty doesn’t exist. And the Dept. of Justice has no interest in waging a big-time war against Pharma.

Even in a society where Libertarian philosophy was the guide, government, however limited, would still have the role of protecting citizens from poisoning and rank fraud.

You could, of course, completely eliminate the government from having any say-so in the approval of medical drugs. You could have the Wild West. Let the buyer beware. Whether this would result in more deaths per year is an open question. It’s quite possible such a free system would eventually make people more cautious about what drugs they ingest; and thus the number of deaths would diminish. People wouldn’t be able to rely on the government to tell them what’s safe and what’s dangerous. In the long, long run, I believe this is so: no FDA is better than FDA.

I’ve been writing and speaking about dangerous medical drugs for almost 30 years, and I haven’t seen any limits placed on the basic FDA-Pharma partnership. This isn’t case of seeing a) government or b) corporations as the basic criminal. They’re both criminals, in collaboration with each other.

In a half-sane society, the big drug companies would have been prosecuted to the sky long ago. Their charters to do business in any state would have been revoked. Their CEOs, executives, and scientists would have been put behind bars for life. Even a limited federal government would have done that.

Here is where I’m in accord with Libertarians: people have right and the freedom to refuse medication, under any circumstances, even where the experts claim death will be the inevitable outcome. And people have the right to ingest any compounds they decide might help them.

If that were the basis for the system, then government couldn’t overwhelm the population with rules about mandatory vaccines (see also) and drugs.

In case you hadn’t noticed, all national health insurance plans, in whatever countries they’ve been established, are the road to perdition, because they can be manipulated to coerce citizens into accepting designated toxic medical treatments.

The freedom of refusal is the only protection when crime bosses rule both government agencies (like the FDA) and pharmaceutical companies.

Trying to reform Pharma or the government is a losing proposition.

In countries other than the US, the FDA-type agencies are likewise stacked with Pharma-favoring allies. These people have no conscience and no accountability. They are dangerous criminals who should be locked up.

But how is that possible when they are embedded within government?

If benign UFOs from another solar system were stationed above Earth, observing civilization at work, one of the first things they would notice is the mass-poisoning operation I’m writing about in this article, especially because it is taking place under the cover of delivering health to the planet’s population.

Someone aboard one of the ships would say, “Oh yes, this is a typical ‘greatest good for the greatest number’ cover story, concealing a war against the people. We see that everywhere.”

Save the village by destroying it.

power outside the matrix

If you want a clue about the FDA’s brazen attitude, search the phrase, “FDA why learn about adverse drug reactions.” You’ll find a page where the FDA readily admits, in capital letters, that 100,000 people die every year from the effects of medical drugs. (The page was still there the last time I checked.) Yet the FDA, the sole government agency responsible for certifying these drugs as safe and effective before they can be prescribed, takes zero responsibility for the death toll.

You would think this is a major story for mainstream media, to say the least. But you would be wrong.

A million deaths per decade doesn’t register on their radar, because they are in bed with the drug companies and the FDA.

There are several sources for the 100,000 death statistic in this article. The primary citation is: Dr. Barbara Starfield, Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, Journal of the American Medical Association, July 26, 2000, “Is US health really the best in the world?” Not long before her death, I interviewed Dr. Starfield. She told me no US government agency had ever contacted her about her findings.

Why would the federal government get in touch with her? It would be tantamount to confessing to mass murder.

    If the National Academy of Sciences reviews the FDA budget for Congress, that is the problem.

    Good Read

    Great and sobering post. Your absolutely right when you said, “In a half-sane society, the big drug companies would have prosecuted to the sky long ago.” The problem is this society is far from being anything close to being half-sane.

    Sadly, I have a loved one that sustained serious and permanent damage from medical-drug destruction. The drug involved is even listed in a respectable medical journal as having a link to organ failure! The doctor administering the drug incredulously stated, “well…this drug is used safely with millions of other people and it’s FDA approved.” A legal opinion that I consulted with basically explained that if the doctor(s)/health provider followed “standard medical care” in administering the drug, they’re “off the hook.” And we all know the FDA is untouchable as our illustrious politicians feel so compelled to protect them like you would a small innocent child.

    So…who wins here and who loses? The victims of this medical-drug destruction crisis seem to be expendable in the eyes of the FDA, while the drug companies laugh all the way to the bank drowning in their billions of dollars. And most of the American people are apathetic to this problem (as long as it doesn’t happen to them!). I’ve talked to a lot of people on this – intelligent, successful, college educated people. Most feel that medical drugs are safe because the FDA “wouldn’t approve an unsafe drug.” Many explicitly trust (and personally like) their doctor when it comes to the recommendation of a certain drug(s). I guess if their friendly, lovable doctor prescribed them rat poison, and it was FDA approved, they would gladly take it.

    Sadly, we are truly a mind controlled population when it comes to medical drugs and medical treatment. As long as people get their dose of reality TV, sports & social networking, as is well and good. And the drug companies creating the impetus for the destruction of human life while they laugh all the way to the bank? All I can say is they sure have a sick sense of humor!

  4. Ah, Jon, you have struck on one of those convenient “word meaning” changes I highlighted on (revamped) Exopolitician: https://exopolitician.wordpress.com/2015/08/07/the-power-of-communion-ism/

    Louisa Sarah Bevington and James Tochatti, mentioned, were two bone-fide Victorian era libertarian/communist/anarchists (take your pick) that would have lambasted “free marketeers” (nouveau libertarians) and the FDA with distain. The latest on my Ozzie Thinker blog punctuates “the issues” and a couple of plausible remedies.



  5. yes Sir Jon, its a horrible situation, down to where one cannot trust them at all, and musty, repeat MUST, learn medicine, as I have done, whemn one does, he sees how bad it really is, and its paramount to murder. ALL be advised, here is some “change” you can belive, they have begun medicating and chipping patients, without consent. If I knew a good sattorney, I can PROOVE that.
    I sure wish, you could have gotten in office, but as you know, an honest man, is not wanted in politics.. a den of vile corruption, greed, and lies now, has been for a long time, but now very blatant.
    Thank you again sir, respects.

  6. I cant stay silent, ALL of you, be dam careful in hospitals, they now somehow, have permission, to refuse records, lie, poison, It has been done to me, Jon, you have my e mail, if you know an attorney with guts, who wants to get rich, but be warned, that person, would need protection.. fact

  7. John says:

    The FDA, aka Monsanto is all about human rights, the right to do what your told and die on command. I assume 100k deaths a year is is acceptable a long as the cash flows in the right direction. Libertarian, limited government and less hack agencies needs to be the direction. How about that false flag toxic water spill in AZ? Just budget posturing? Just keep appointing your Monsanto handlers to the board off the fda el presidente

    Jon, this is so easy:

    Fact: Government is a scam -always has been, always will be. Therefor, the FDA is a scam. Obamacare is a scam, of course. But then again, so is social security, medicare, medicaid, welfare, the Federal Reserve, the EPA etc. etc. ad infinitum. There’s no end to it.

    Jon, if you do not see this simple fact then I’m afraid,you are well and truly locked down inside “the matrix” you claim to have escaped, IMHO. 🙂

    “In your dream, Obama is not a scam”
    “In your dream, George Bush was not a scam”
    “In your dream, Clinton was not a scam”
    “In your dream, Reagan was not a scam”
    “In your dream, all the rest were not a scam”
    “In your dream, the constitution was not a scam”…….”

    Dream on… or not , Jon? As always, your choice .

    This is an excellent commentary, but there is something that needs to be emphasized here.

    Yes, the FDA has done a LOT of damage by approving harmful drugs. But it has done a LOT MORE damage by interfering with the ability of doctors and patients to use alternative approaches. If we could readily and economically use (e.g.) legal cannabis oil to treat cancer (and many other conditions), then it wouldn’t matter so much how many overpriced, dangerous drugs the FDA gave its stamp of approval to.

    There have been many providers of beneficial cancer treatments that the FDA (and other agencies and medical licensing boards) has put out of business, yet Boobus Americanus thinks that the FDA is doing us a great favor by cracking down on “quacks”. And the same goes for treatments for other so-called chronic conditions.

    If alternative doctors and remedies were allowed to compete on a level playing field with allopathic medicine, Big Pharma would go belly up.

    Hi Jon, There is an even simpler solution. A federal law requiring companies to have liability insurance on their products. The dangerous ones with numerous side effects will obviously have higher liability costs because of the abundant side effects and the safer products will carry lower liability costs and therefore lower prices. Companies dumb enough to not properly vet their products would leave themselves open to huge potential losses that could put themselves out of business and it would change the whole focus to producing cheap inexpensive solutions to all diseases.
