Media won’t investigate medically-caused death numbers

Imagine a Congressional hearing held before media cameras, with reporters all over the US and Europe ready with shocking articles about one of the leading causes of death—

SENATOR: Sir, I have the numbers in front of me. How can you keep this secret from the public?

FDA COMMISSIONER: It’s not a secret, sir. Many experts know about it.

SENATOR: I’m looking through the trillion-dollar federal budget. I’m looking for the money allocated to fix this horrible situation. Where are those funds?


I know major media won’t investigate medically-caused death numbers, because I’ve published reports for years, and I’ve contacted news people with the facts; and nothing happens.

So we begin with a few citations.

July 26, 2000, Journal of the American Medical Association; author, Dr. Barbara Starfield, revered public health expert at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health; “Is US health really the best in the world?”

Starfield reported that the US medical system kills 225,000 Americans a year. 106,000 as a result of FDA-approved medical drugs, and 119,000 as a result of mistreatment and errors in hospitals. Extrapolate the numbers to a decade: that’s 2.25 million deaths. You might want to read that last number again.

I interviewed Starfield in 2009. I asked her whether she was aware of any overall effort by the US government to eliminate this holocaust, and whether she had ever been contacted by any government agency to consult on such an effort. She answered a resounding no to both questions.

Here is another citation: “Anticoagulants cause the most serious adverse events, finds US analysis,” BMJ June 7, 2012 (BMJ 2012:344:e3989). Author, Jeanne Lenzer. Lenzer refers to a report by the Institute for Safe Medication Practices: “It [the Institute] calculated that in 2011 prescription drugs were associated with two to four million people in the US experiencing ‘serious, disabling, or fatal injuries, including 128,000 deaths.’”

The report called this “one of the most significant perils to humans resulting from human activity.”

The report was compiled by outside researchers who went into the FDA’s own database of “serious adverse [medical-drug] events.”

Therefore, to say the FDA isn’t aware of this finding would be absurd. The FDA knows. The FDA knows and it isn’t saying anything about it, because the FDA certifies, as safe and effective, all the medical drugs that are routinely maiming and killing Americans.

Here is another citation: The article is, “The Epidemic of Sickness and Death from Prescription Drugs.” The author is Donald Light, who teaches at Rowan University, and is the 2013 recipient of ASA’s [American Sociological Association’s] Distinguished Career Award for the Practice of Sociology. Light is a founding fellow of the Center for Bioethics at the University of Pennsylvania. In 2013, he was a fellow at the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard. He is a Lokey Visiting Professor at Stanford University.

Donald Light: “Epidemiologically, appropriately prescribed, prescription drugs are the fourth leading cause of death, tied with stroke at about 2,460 deaths each week in the United States. About 330,000 patients die each year from prescription drugs in the United States and Europe. They [the drugs] cause an epidemic of about 20 times more hospitalizations [6.6 million annually], as well as falls, road accidents, and [annually] about 80 million medically minor problems such as pains, discomforts, and dysfunctions that hobble productivity or the ability to care for others. Deaths and adverse effects from overmedication, errors, and self-medication would increase these figures.” (ASA publication, “Footnotes,” November 2014)

The statistics I’m quoting reveal a problem on the level of a tsunami sweeping across the whole of America and Europe.

Why won’t major media report these facts?

The obvious reason: their big-spending pharmaceutical advertisers would drop them like hot potatoes.

But there are other reasons.

Every medical bureaucrat or medical shill or medical expert who jumps aboard the media train, to assure the public that drugs and vaccines are remarkably safe, is sitting on the time bomb I have described above.

This is a key, key fact. If this bomb were widely recognized, who would continue to believe these professional pundits? Who would accept anything they say? How could they possibly sustain their credibility?

“Well, the system I represent kills 2.25 million people per decade, and maims between 20 and 40 million more people per decade, but I want to assure you this vaccine presents no problems at all. It’s incredibly safe.”

Every single pronouncement, on any subject, issued via the medical cartel’s Ministry of Truth would fall on disbelieving ears, and only increase general outrage.

Mainstream reporters and editors and publishers are well aware that telling the truth and continuing to pound on it would undermine a basic institution of society.

The media are there to give credibility to society and its structures. That’s why they’re called “major” instead of “minor.”

When hard rains fall, the media are there with an umbrella to hold over organized society’s head. To walk away in the middle of a downpour would leave the status quo unprotected.

“Defending the Crown” is another way to put it. The King may make mistakes, he may commit heinous offenses, but he is the King, and therefore his position must remain secure.

Young journalists learn this point quickly. If in their zeal, they cross the threshold and attempt to expose a central myth, fairy tale, legend, they’re put back in their place. They absorb the message. Journalism has limits. Certain truths are silent truths.

Over the years, I’ve talked to reporters who are solidly addicted to obfuscations. Like any addict, they have an army of excuses to rationalize their behavior.

The medical experts are worse. Their pretense of idealism knows no limits, and is matched only by their claim to bullet-proof knowledge.

When you peel the veneer away, they are enablers, persons of interest, co-conspirators.

There is nothing quite like a high-minded, socially-positioned, card-carrying member of the King’s circle of protectors. The arrogance is titanic. Because what is being hidden is so explosive.

225,000 deaths a year at the hands of modern medicine. Two to four million maimings. 2.25 million deaths per decade. The Crown is responsible.

And yet it is the duty of the Crown to make his subjects feel safe and protected and even loved.

No wonder he needs such a large army of trained helpers in and around the press.

He has them.

But their monopoly is breaking down.

We’re at the beginning of a new breakout level of truth. It’s called independent media.

Stay tuned.

    The medical care is the 3rd leading cause of death in USA. It is official. The numbers vary from 200.000-800.000 deaths per year. Nobody speaks about it, the problem is just being ignored. Yet, when there is measles out break with 16 cases (all end up well), the News agencies are on full alert, reporting 24/7 on this latest and greatest threat of humanity. The world is not alrite, the news agencies are the greatest evil in the world right now, they shape the public opinion and they are all corrupted, sold out. The news agencies are the mirror of the world, if we don’t cure them we will die!

  2. Apart from simple malevolent mass murder based on eugenics, some of the structure is held up by this unshakable belief in The West’s supposed “rationalism”. Paul Feyerabend wrote about this years ago in his book “Farewell to Reason”. He was an associate of Karl Popper who said something like “if a country won’t accept our rationalism then it must be forced upon them”. Feyerabend rails against the destruction of traditional ancient practices by this attitude. The West does have many great rational approaches, but the medical cartel ain’t one of them. I think people like us who have discovered the truth are assumed to be “subversives” who want to “take down Western civilisation” and “keep people away from their medicines”. But one day the collective consciousness group think will fall.

    Because Media is FUNDED by pHARMa advertising !

    Thank You for advertising $$$ but here is the truth ….

    Although it’s not addressed, I don’t believe it’s being ignored. Let me explain;

    (If I bruise anyone’s “sensitivities” and appear politically incorrect, sorry. But isn’t the rabid FEAR of being politically incorrect the MAJOR cause of our present situation?)

    Kosher owned/run media

    Kosher owned/run pharmaceuticals

    kosher run “authorities having jurisdiction”

    Anyone beginning to see a pattern yet?

    kosher owned/run AIPAC et al

    kosher owned “Shabbos Goi” and dual citizens through out D.C.

    Am I (((shudder))) an evil National Socialist?

    Or HORRORS an “anti Semite”?

    Sly canards to silence what THEY THEMSELVES have boasted about for millennia.

    Quote from “You Gentiles” by Maurice Samuel;

    “We Jews, we, the destroyers, will remain the destroyers for ever. Nothing that you do will meet our needs and demands. We will for ever destroy because we need a world of our own, a God-world, which it is not in your nature to build. (Pg 155)

    Let me ask you this;

    If you see a bloated fox leering at you with feathers/blood on his muzzle and he tells you HE didn’t slaughter all those chickens in the coop but tells you it was the tricky SLOTH next door – would you go kill that SLOTH or look into things a bit closer?

    Never mind – Our present situation pretty much answered THAT question…..

    As usual a compelling article Mr. Rappaport, thanks.

    So do we just assume those 200,000 + people a year whose deaths are attributable to medications would still be alive if they were not given any medications? How “safe” does a medication have to be? What would be the standards? Or maybe the patient should be given all the known information about the drug and just left to decide for himself whether to take it? Hmmm. Maybe only spinach and marijuana are “safe”?

    • John Barlicorn says:

      Wrong diagnosis and treatment is half of the problem, doctors have no idea whats wrong with you most of time time. Bad untested and unproven drugs from the pharma industry is the second and bigger half of the problem.
      Can it just be that the in 2018 the medicine is killing more people than it is saving? Certainly a study can be made to see just how many people exactly the doctors and pharma industry are saving every year. We already have the numbers of their murders, we need to see a number of lives they saved.

    OMERTA – I first came across the word as describing the police code of silence. As I’ve since learned, it applies to every major organization.

  7. bettyhill says:

    The safest medicines in the world are ‘traditional’ medicines that have been tried and tested for over 2,000 years and they work. But because they would hit the bottom-line of the pharma mafia in a big way, they have twisted the regulator’s arms so they cannot be used in the West. The reason they give is that they are not on a scientific footing and tested to western standards. But what would common sense dictate to you if you were asked, would you trust a medication that had stood the test-of-time of over 2,000 years and which cures with no human adverse effects or a mere 150 years in the case of modern pharmaceuticals? Indeed, I know of people who have had chronic illnesses that western drugs could not help, but where medication from Vietnam cured them. Therefore it is not modern pharmaceuticals and the FDA that is looking after you I can assure you of that, as they are hand in glove together in the game of big business and the huge profits (largest in all industrial sectors) that the drugs companies make you pay through the nose. In this respect big pharma is not interested in cures like the likes of the Vietnamese, but mere treatments that keeps the rolling ball of rolling in billions every year.

      If the pharma can’t sell you a pill they will try to stop you from using herbs. We allowed that, by being too uninformed and inactive.
