Reminder: murder at the FDA

Reminder: Murder at the FDA

by Jon Rappoport

September 22, 2017

File this one under: “studiously ignored by major media.”

I first posted this story in August of 2012. It was based on a Truthout interview of a man who did drug reviews for the FDA. He examined applications to approve new medical drugs.

Pharmaceutical companies must have their new drugs certified as safe and effective before they can enter the market, before doctors can prescribe them. The FDA does this certification. Thumbs up or thumbs down.

Here’s the story:

In a stunning interview with Truthout’s Martha Rosenberg, former FDA drug reviewer, Ronald Kavanagh, exposes the FDA as a relentless criminal mafia protecting its client, Big Pharma, with a host of mob strategies.

Kavanagh: “…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.”

Kavanagh 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.

But honest appraisal wasn’t part of the FDA culture, and Kavanagh swam against the tide, until he realized his life and the life of his children was on the line.

What was his secret task at the FDA? “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.

Kavanagh’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.

He 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.

Kavanagh recalls being given records of safety data on a drug—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 situation at the FDA isn’t correctable with a few firings. This 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.

Seventeen years ago, the cat was let out of the bag. Dr. Barbara Starfield, writing in the Journal of the American Medical Association, on July 26, 2000, in a review titled, “Is US health really the best in the world,” exposed the fact that FDA-approved medical drugs kill 106,000 Americans per year. That’s a MILLION deaths per decade.

In interviewing her, I discovered that she had never been approached by any federal agency to help remedy this tragedy. Nor had the federal government taken any steps on its own to stop the dying.

The government has still done nothing.

    Well, the government does not step in because they want us so poor in healthy that we can not think straight or function well, or live very long.and if we don’t live long, we don’t have long enough to learn and figure everything out. The medical industry and its supporting industries do what they are told by men far more powerful that government, who tell tell government what to do, too., Ignore them and you get your head blown off in front of everyone.

    This kind of behavior is more like a crime syndicate rather than a government of the people.If people were really the government as the theory goes, then no taxes could be levied or raised without the approval of the voting public, “the people” as the Reds call them. But we have representatives who do not have to represent us at all and were we to try to prosecute them for dereliction of duties or treason, they have a very large standing army that can put down their own population as easy as nation over seas. Hence, we have no power and are absolute slaves by any definition of that word. Oh, my boss said I had better get my @$$ back into the cotton fields if I know what is good for me. Later ya’ll

      Truth, our original Republic has devolved into a giant racketeering scheme.
      millions are involved and benefit. Our founders knew this would probably happen, but gave the peasants an opportunity to rise above their state of fealty.
      Jefferson said “The two enemies of the people are criminals and government,
      so let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution
      so the second will not become the legalized version of the first.”
      This is the foundation of the Constitution, its laws and constraints are for the government, the creature the people created.

      Income tax is one of the greatest frauds and racketeering schemes which deprive people of their right to property and ability to feed clothe house themselves well and to pursue life, liberty and happiness. Puerto Rico or port of RICO (which is the racketeering capital of the world) just got pummeled by a hurricane named after Santa Maria. Is this an esoteric message?

      Income can not be taxable for it is simply an equal exchange, there is no profit. There are countless supreme court cases which are very clear about this. How can humans be free if they continue to pay for their own prison? If a significant number of people challenged this legally and lawfully, it would end. There are not enough criminals in government to stand up to an informed active intelligent population.

      Here is something that is being used to stop another deadly scam; smart meters, and learn how our corrupt false government really works and what is being done about it.

      The FDA tried to make vitamin C a presciption drug, ask Mel Gibson, he campaigned against it. We used to have vaccines, now we have CDC (control/treatment) instead of vaccines becasue Jonas Salk gave away his polio vaccine for free and the PTB realized they have better make an org to profit from disease instead of curing it or doctors and big pharma wouldn’t profit.

    Due to the title, my first reaction was sorrow for Kavangh; he told the truth and paid for it with his life. But he wasn’t murdered.

    It’s not necessary for the government to ‘deal with’ whistle blowers anymore. We the public are so addled by propaganda and stuffed with distraction that the truth vanishes in the noise.

    The medical mafia’s well-oiled public relations machine churns as the world turns, and after every one of Jon’s articles my rage burns -a little hotter. Pharmaceutical reps and MDs aren’t going to lord over man’s future.

    This very clearly and strongly suggests to me that we should not be trusting our health and well being to anyone but ourselves and our children as well I’ve known this for sometime. A number of years but many do not. It’s important we take full responsibility of our well being And especially not really on these very faulty agencies and individuals to dictate what we do with our bodies. Especially pharmaceuticals and vaccines. As far as I’m concerned this spans across the board. We have been way to trusting of those who do not deserve or earn that trust

    Speaking of murder, here’s a first-hand account of the recent attempted drownings of Texans by the feds who blocked roads and tried to prevent rescues. The Civil War and its contempt for We the People never really ended. Would be wonderful for you to interview this courageous man.

    I read this article early this morning. Have read it before, and was still thinking about it later while walking through the rain. The most beautiful rainbow formed in the sky right before my eyes. And a realization almost knocked me off my feet. I did a mental face palm. Didn’t l know this all along – was I hiding this from myself?

    I know, a little confusing. Here are the dots… When I saw the rainbow, God’s flag, not some group acronym’s flag, all the crazy stuff coming to light made sense. None of the medical and food corruption, Marxist teaching in school, decline of industry, etc. is an accident. This has been in the works for a few generations or longer. Heck, the FDA was probably an evil organization from its inception.

    The goal of course is global rule. In order to do that you have to demoralize, destabilize, shock and then “normalize” nations. The rainbow flag was designed in the 70’s, but it’s only recently been embraced around the world, not just by gays but by other gender confused individuals, and also now by pedofiles. It’s so in your face. Ask yourself, if you are a Christian, who would want to take the amazingly beautiful rainbows God creates for us and pervert its meaning, what it symbolizes? We’ve been demoralized. Anything goes. (Re. Christianity- has anyone found a church in the last decade that doesn’t teach lies?)

    Pretty sure we have been destabilized..ongoing destabilization. 911 was a huge shock. The subsequent normalization to homeland security, airport screenings, Govt overreach, fake news, false flags, endless hacking (who doesn’t have all of our personal info by now?), pushes to take away freedoms like choices in medicine and treatment, vaccines, how we raise our children and whether we can own guns. Most people won’t believe even one tiny instance of any of these things, even if you show them mountains of evidence.

    Corporations are laying off employees left and right to the point they can barely operate, and not because they need to cut costs or purely out of greed. Do they know something we don’t? Are they being given incentives to commit suicide?

    Meanwhile the tech giants are making out like bandits. Linked In, following their tech cousins, just opened a new 83 million euro facility in Ireland. Wasn’t reported in this country. Why?

    Could it be that they know we are well on our way to becoming normalized for a Marxist Govt, and our time is limited?

    Don’t forget to get your flu shot now at Drugworld Pharmacy.
    If you get sick two days later it had nothing to do with the flu shot comrade.
    Forward! The Great Leap Forward.

  9. From Quebec says:

    The corruption is so deep, that it is almost impossible to stop it.. It would require to fire most of the members of the FDA, or, to completely abolish this corrupt agency..

    What could be done? First, there should be a ban on drugs coming from countries like China.who have no regulation whatsoever.

    Better yet, turn to alternative medicine. There are enough reliable Internet alternative medicine sites to help people with health problems.

    Or, find the best of the best of drug reviewers, and let them create a new kind of FDA. One that is rum by peoples who really care for the well being of it citizens.
