New Report Exposes “Patient Advocacy” Groups as a Big Pharma Scam

“Patient advocacy” groups have a unique power on Capitol Hill. They claim to represent the true voice of constituents, untainted by special interest bias. Politicians and the Food and Drug Administration use their endorsements as reflective of genuine public support.

But a new study shows that nearly all of these patient advocacy groups are captured by the drug industry.

David Hilzenrath at the Project on Government Oversight (POGO) reports that at least 39 of 42 patient advocacy groups who participated in discussions with the FDA over agency review processes for prescription drugs received funding from pharmaceutical companies. And at least 15 have representatives of drug or biotechnology companies on their governing boards.

The study is particularly notable now because Congress is poised to pass the 21st Century Cures Act, which trades temporary additional funding for the National Institutes of Health and the FDA for permanent weakening of the FDA’s approval process. Over 1,400 lobbyists have been working on this bill, which would be a major financial boon to the drug and medical device industries.

Patient advocacy groups have factored heavily into the lobbying effort. According to an analysis from research group Avalere in December 2014, 43 percent of public comments on the House version of the bill were from patient advocacy groups.

But those groups are not necessarily independent, POGO warns.

For instance, the National Health Council, a group that calls itself “The United Patient Voice” and has advocated before the FDA for faster drug approvals, includes on its board of directors leaders of the two main trade groups for the drug industry — Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA), and Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO) – along with executives from drug companies Sanofi, Johnson & Johnson, and Alkermes. PhRMA gave the National Health Council $1.2 million in 2014; in all, 77 percent of its funding came from the pharmaceutical and biotech industries, according to POGO. Its “Policy Action Team” also has a PhMRA representative on it, along with an employee of Johnson & Johnson.

Pfizer, the drug company giant, even listed the National Health Council as a “Trade Association Membership” on its lobbying forms.

Another group, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, received at least $1 million in funding from Bristol-Myers Squibb, Celgene, Genentech, Gilead, Novartis, Pharmacyclics/Janssen, and Takeda Oncology. Joseph Kelley, a vice president of government affairs (which typically means lead lobbyist) for Eli Lilly, sits on the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society board, along with Bristol-Myers Squibb executive Renzo Canetta, and Dana Callow of PAREXEL, a liaison to drug companies on clinical trials.

It is only our naivety that has us expect it to be any different. It is ever thus when you get close to the centre of power.

The Dangerous Deception Called The Trump Presidency

In my opinion, William Engdahl once more calls it as it is:

The project called the Trump Presidency has just two months before its formal beginning. Yet already the hopes and fantasies of much of the world are making him into something and someone Donald Trump most definitely is not. Donald Trump is yet another project of the same boring old patriarchs who try again and again to create a one world order that they control absolutely, a New World Order that one close Trump backer once referred to as universal fascism. Ignore the sometimes fine rhetoric in some of his speeches. Talk is cheap. If we consider rather the agenda that’s taking form even in these very early days of cabinet naming, we can see that Donald Trump is the same agenda of war and global empire as Obama, as Bush before him, as Bill Clinton and Clinton’s “tutor”, George H.W. Bush before him. There is no good side to what the world is about to experience with President Trump

‘Ladies and gentlemen, It’s Showtime!’ Today we give you Donald Trump. He will tell you just what many of you want to hear. Trump the showman will tell you he will make America great again; Trump will say he will ship at least 3 million illegals back across the Rio Grande; Trump will introduce a bill to declare the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization; Trump will bring jobs back to America from China and other low wage countries; Trump will sit down with Putin and work out some kind of a deal to calm things down; Trump will scrap the Iran nuclear deal of Obama…

Often during this election campaign, which was more a Hollywood “D” grade movie than any honest debate of policies and ideas candidate Trump made statements that resonated with the “silent majority” of not only so-called blue collar workers, but also the disenfranchised middle class whose earnings have been declining in real terms since the 1970’s. Trump, like an earlier actor-President named Ronald Reagan, has a talent to make himself sound sincere.

Is Trump a Grassroots Revolution?

We should not imagine for one second that the Patriarchy– those loveless old men like David Rockefeller or George Herbert Walker Bush or unnamed others– were so overwhelmed by the political genius of candidate Trump emerging from every scandal more powerful than before, that they were surprised, out-foxed, and just groaned and let it happen.

The Trump Presidency has been planned in minute detail by them and their think tanks. Quite simply, had they continued the policies that Hillary Clinton represented–war and confrontation against Russia, against China, with Color Revolution destabilizations of any and all political leaders who opposed them whether Ghaddafi or Mubarak or even Putin–they saw they were losing power over huge parts of the world, essential geopolitical power.

When a President of the relatively tiny American former colony fears not to openly attack by name an American President as “son of a whore,” and declare in China his Philippines’ “separation” from the United States, when one country after the other comes closer in economic and political cooperation to Russia, to China and to their growing Eurasian economic cohesion around the One Bridge One Road Eurasian infrastructure great project, it was clearly time to install a Plan B President.

That Plan B is casino mogul Donald Trump, a political tabula rasa, a power-possessed person with a blackmail potential that will keep him on program for them, an alpha male who is quite gifted at being able to make people fear.

If we were to use conventional psychological definitions I would say the word sociopath fits: “Antisocial personality disorder characterized by a lack of regard for the moral or legal standards in the culture.” Narcissism would be another apt term: “Extreme selfishness, with a grandiose view of one’s own talents and a craving for admiration…” Read his own autobiography and his descriptions of his earlier antics with mob lawyer and mentor, Roy Cohn, at the cocaine-snorting Studio 54 and look more closely at his actual life history, not only what he dismisses as “locker room talk” eleven years ago with Billy Bush. He is definitely no JFK or Charles de Gaulle, not even close.

I state clearly my conviction, and please recall this as Trump Presidency policies unfold after January 20, 2017 to see if I am correct or not: Donald Trump was put into office to prepare America for war, a war the banks of Wall Street and the US military industrial complex are not presently in a position economically or industrially or otherwise, geopolitically, to win. His job will be to reposition the United States for them to reverse the trend to disintegration of American global hegemony, to, as the Dick Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz Project for the New American Century put it in their September, 2000 report, “rebuild America’s defenses.”

End of quote.

You can read the rest here.

How soon we forget the breath of fresh air that Obama was expected be in 2008. But most Americans sleep on, hoping against hope that there is truth to the version of a wonderful America they were brought up on, when the elite Jews have had the place in the palm of their hand since at least the mid-19th century and with the final lock being the Fed in 1913. And they’ve done much more since.

But isn’t Anarchism about – well – anarchy?

I find it interesting that there is a growing discussion about Anarchism and what it actually is, in this time when we are staring down the barrel of the globalists realising their objective of One World Government. And this conversation is emerging from within the box that the NWO promoters have placed it in – that Anarchism equates to anarchy; that we need central governments. But we don’t. Indeed, Anarchism frees people to come together as they choose for common benefit.

If these ideas are new to you, you might want to listen to this conversation about Anarchism, because it is a very open – dare I say it – anarchic discussion of the subject.

In my view, this is timely because we need to begin to think about our world beyond this heavily controlled paradigm. And many people out there are doing just that. In my view, it will be upon us before we realise it. May it be so.

VAXXED not being shown in Australia for “public safety” reasons

This article speaks for itself:

An enormous and entirely unnecessary furore has engulfed what was to be the Australian premiere screening of the documentary film VAXXED. After a massive campaign of harassment and intimidation, CLIFF was reluctantly forced to drop the film. The Theatre Royal and another group, Citizens For Freedom, then resolved to proceed with a new screening.

Though resolutely committed to the concept of free speech, the Theatre Royal has received extensive advice on the matter and is now concerned about public safety should the screening proceed. Unfortunately, as public safety is paramount, the documentary film must be withdrawn.

It should be noted that few, if any, of the film’s critics (and those calling for its banning) have actually seen the documentary film in question.

It may be bitterly ironic that one can walk into a cinema in the U.S.A. and see VAXXED, but one clearly cannot do the same in Australia.

Though this may appear to be a small win for the forces of censorship and prejudice, it is in fact a large and resounding victory for both VAXXED and free speech. Millions of Australians are now aware of the film for the first time and a multitude of people now know that the ideal of free speech is a fragile, precious and perhaps endangered thing in today’s Australia.

There will be no further comment at this time.

A Joint Press Statement from CLIFF, The Theatre Royal and Citizens For Freedom

Source: https://www.facebook.com/CLIFF.CastlemaineLocalandInternationalFilmFestival/

NOTE: Dr Wakefield called this, Domestic Terrorism in Australia but what is being done & are the FEDS going to investigate these thug groups? I would say that most of it is coming from outside of Australia but from here as well with some of these trolls openly on the attack & not even hiding it. What if i started making serious threats to local cinema’s or shops & it was bad enough to shut things down to protect the public, how fast would the FEDS be on my doorstep?

This is the same sick crew that attacked Dr Tenpenny & stopped her visit here, the threats against her were so serious that the FBI got involved. Nothing was done here & again it’s happening, plus the media are totally ignoring these threats to a festival. How many anti-terrorism laws have been passed in this country since 9/11 & why are these groups allowed to keep holding our health freedoms & freedoms of speech at gunpoint? This hate group are now dictating what we can & can’t see at the movies, it’s ridiculous. This is obviously a huge criminal conspiracy, paid for & controlled by the Drug Empire & i would say it goes from bottom to the top as well as police, health ministers & media.

End of quote.

Few Australians have a clue how closely controlled their exposure to ideas and information that is contrary to the official brainwashing is. Two separate examples related to vaccination are contained in this article alone. And that old hoary argument “public safety” has been used by that hidden Jewish hand of control to suppress debate on many fronts and is most often used to prevent presentations by people who want to present the facts about the holohoax, and you see it here.

Sleep on, my Australian friends. Enjoy your good food, your chardonnay and pinot, your Italian derived coffee culture whilst your children and your children’s children are put at high risk of contracting autism, ADD, etc. through vaccination. Meanwhile, that bastion of protection of people globally, Bill Gates, openly admits that vaccination is a vehicle by which to reduce the human population (thanks, Lib). Although it’s far from the only technique being used.

‘Change your diet or you’ll die’: Low-carb advice lands doctor in hot water

Gary Fettke is an orthopaedic surgeon and an advocate of a low carbohydrate diet.

He said he became passionate about nutrition after amputating limbs of diabetic patients whose diets were a big part of the problem.

“What I’ve been advocating for some years is cutting sugar down, particularly all the refined sugars in the diet,” he said.

“Over time that’s evolved, and it’s evolved to what I call low carb, healthy fat.

“It’s just eating lots of vegetables, pasture-fed meat and the right amount of oil in the form of things like nuts, avocado, cheese, olive oil and fish.”

One of his patients, Julian Robinson, who had to have his leg amputated because of complications from diabetes, said the diet changed his life for the better…

…Doctor Fettke started pushing for changes to the food in the Launceston General Hospital where he worked and then criticised the hospital for a lack of action.

According to Dr Fettke, an anonymous complaint from a dietician at the hospital sparked an investigation by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).

Two and a half years later the watchdog found he was working outside his scope of practise and was not qualified to give specific nutritional advice, and he was ordered to stop speaking about the low carbohydrate, high fat diet.

“The committee does not accept that your medicine studies of themselves provide sufficient education or training to justify you providing specific advice or recommendations to patients or the public about nutrition and diet, such as the LCHF lifestyle concept,” it read.

End of quote.

We wouldn’t want to disrupt the carefully constructed delusion that “lo fat” diets are healthy, now would we? Just not good for business and the plans to severely debilitate much of the population. I mean, it has to be fats, not carbs that make us fat, right?

I wonder where the explosion in Type 2 diabetes has sprung from? Not by eating what our great grandparents ate…
