A Historic Precedent

In the momentous article "Medical Science Under Dictator-ship," Dr. Leo Alexander, the chief U.S. medical consultant at the Nuremberg War Crimes Trials, examined "the process by which the German medical profession became a willing and unquestioning collaborator with the Nazis." He noted the early changes in medical attitudes that predisposed German physicians to first collect data on their patients to conduct what today we call "cost-effective analysis," and then to use the latter information as a vehicle to commit medical genocide under the auspices of the totalitarianism of National Socialism.

Dr. Alexander warns us that "from small beginnings" the values of an entire society may be subverted, leading to the horrors of a police state.

The "small beginnings" in Nazi Germany that Dr. Alexander referred to first led the physicians to collect data from their patients and then violate their patients' privacy and medical record confidentiality by supplying the information to the state.(6)

Organizations with humanitarian-sounding names were set up in Nazi Germany to institute "health" programs, under deceptive, euphemistic terms.
For example, questionnaires collected by a "Realm's Work Committee of Institutions for Cure and Care" gathered and reported information on patients who had been ill five years or more and who were unable to work.

"On the basis of name, race, marital status, nationality, next of kin, whether regularly visited and by whom, who bore financial responsibility, and so forth," decisions were ultimately made for the patient euthanasia program heralded by the Nazi government for the good of the state and the "health of the nation."
The first steps taken toward barbarism were the result of the physicians' willingness to participate in patient data collection and the violation of medical privacy. "Corrosion," as Dr. Alexander wrote, "begins in microscopic proportions."

German physicians were, more than any other profession, heavily represented in the Nazi Party, which they joined in droves.

German psychiatrists were no exception, and they also enthusiastically supported Nazi Germany's gun control laws of 1938 that disarmed the civilian population and left a monopoly of force in the hands of the German military and the SS.

The rest, as we say, is history.

AMA Becomes Political

As to the commitment of the AMA to weakening medical privacy and individual-based ethics in favor of population-based ethics and achieve a partnership with government, there is no longer any doubt.(7,8)

In the case of the American Psychiatric Association, one only has to peruse its position statement on homicide prevention and gun control promulgated by its leadership as early as 1993: "In view of the need to reinforce individual and group sanctions against the use of violence as a social instrument, behavioral mode, or adaptorional [sic] pattern, as psychiatrists have done with drug abuse, suicidal actions, and antisocial behavior, the American Psychiatric Association recommends that strong controls be placed on the availability of all types of firearms to private citizens."(9)

Why would the AMA and organized medicine become involved in this politically expedient but potentially explosive issue of gun control and condone the systematic violation of the privacy of vulnerable patients?

IMO: Mind Drugging of America and the Mental health Industry is essential to the political planning for a New World Order. It is also happening in other countries.

To crush the Republican coup d'état will require the Mental Health Industry to have evidence based medicine instead of their hearsay, voodoo, Tarot Card readings and Crystal Ball gazing for a Mental Health diagnoses.

That change will cripple the Republican Party and their ability to mind drug America. The change would fail in the Republican attempt to infiltrate the judiciary with the Mental Health Court and it would cut the pharmaceutical industry profit and put the army of pharmaceutical drug salesmen on the street selling pencils rather then placing influential pressures on the men of medicine. I think it would deeply cut the Government payouts for Medicare drugs and disability payments saving billions and it would snap the attempt to license the lowly psychologists with minimum education to prescribe to the public in any of the States which the pharmaceutical industry wanted desperately....More importantly, it will save the lives and minds of millions of people including children and would clear out the expense of the Mental Health industry hanging around at the local schools with no science and preaching propaganda in their attempt to give validity to their profession. It would invalidate the American Psychiatric Association's DSM as their bible which is nothing but pure rubbish. Horse-crap.

It would be a real kick in the balls to the Republicans moneybags in creating their Holocaust USA and it would be worth while watching the Republican politicians in Congress fail in their attempt of a planned coup d'état against the USA.

Top Ten Legal Drugs Linked to Violence

Pasted from < ;


A new study from the Institute for Safe Medication Practices published in the journal PloS One and based on data from the FDA's Adverse Event Reporting System has identified 31 drugs that are disproportionately linked with reports of violent behavior towards others.(More on : New Hope For An Anti-Cocaine Vaccine)

Please note that this does not necessarily mean that these drugs cause violent behavior. For example, in the case of opioid pain medications like Oxycontin, people with a prior history of violent behavior may seek drugs in order to sustain an addiction, which they support via predatory crime. In the case of antipsychotics, the drugs may be given in an attempt to reduce violence by people suffering from schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders — so the drugs here might not be causing violence, but could be linked with it because they're used to try to stop it.
Nonetheless, when one particular drug in a class of nonaddictive drugs used to treat the same problem stands out, that suggests caution: unless the drug is being used to treat radically different groups of people, that drug may actually be the problem. Researchers calculated a ratio of risk for each drug compared to the others in the database, adjusting for various relevant factors that could create misleading comparisons. Here are the top ten offenders:

10. Desvenlafaxine (Pristiq) An antidepressant which affects both serotonin and noradrenaline, this drug is 7.9 times more likely to be associated with violence than other drugs.

9. Venlafaxine (Effexor) A drug related to Pristiq in the same class of antidepressants, both are also used to treat anxiety disorders. Effexor is 8.3 times more likely than other drugs to be related to violent behavior.(More on : Adderall May Not Make You Smarter, But It Makes You Think You Are)

8. Fluvoxamine (Luvox) An antidepressant that affects serotonin (SSRI), Luvox is 8.4 times more likely than other medications to be linked with violence

7. Triazolam (Halcion) A benzodiazepine which can be addictive, used to treat insomnia. Halcion is 8.7 times more likely to be linked with violence than other drugs, according to the study.

6. Atomoxetine (Strattera) Used to treat attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), Strattera affects the neurotransmitter noradrenaline and is 9 times more likely to be linked with violence compared to the average medication.

5. Mefoquine (Lariam) A treatment for malaria, Lariam has long been linked with reports of bizarre behavior. It is 9.5 times more likely to be linked with violence than other drugs.

4. Amphetamines:(Various) Amphetamines are used to treat ADHD and affect the brain's dopamine and noradrenaline systems. They are 9.6 times more likely to be linked to violence, compared to other drugs.

3. Paroxetine (Paxil) An SSRI antidepressant, Paxil is also linked with more severe withdrawal symptoms and a greater risk of birth defects compared to other medications in that class. It is 10.3 times more likely to be linked with violence compared to other drugs.(More on : Healthland's Guide to Life 2011)

2. Fluoxetine (Prozac) The first well-known SSRI antidepressant, Prozac is 10.9 times more likely to be linked with violence in comparison with other medications.

1. Varenicline (Chantix) The anti-smoking medication Chantix affects the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor, which helps reduce craving for smoking. Unfortunately, it's 18 times more likely to be linked with violence compared to other drugs —

Can we trust the medical scientists?- Can we trust the medical scientists?
The word SCIENCE or "scientific" is accepted as the watchword for purity and truth. If it was published in a scientific or medical journal, it must be "true" is the widely held belief.

But what if the scientists are lying, faking or stealing their data and trying to cover up their own crimes and those of other people? I'm not talking about mistakes or even false doctrine. I'm talking about cynically manipulating figures, or making them up; lying and cheating in a very serious domain that leads mankind down dangerous paths. Falsified medical data could (and does) cost lives.

What happens to researchers who get caught lying? They get hired by drug companies, of course!

I'm sure this shocking report is only the tip of the iceberg. The investigators can't even keep pace with the number of complaints received. Fraud is endemic within the medical academic fraternity. How dare they criticize others for not being scientific when they can't even keep their own house in order?[K Scott-Mumby - editor]

Big Pharma has developed new forms of 'research' to serve its own interests.

The medical research world has been concerned about the problem of ghost writing for more than a decade. Over the past few years, the issue has been repeatedly raised in the mainstream media. Most of the commentary has focused on the ethics of academics signing their name on papers they did not write and on some of the most egregious actions by pharmaceutical companies.
But these efforts miss the ways in which Big Pharma has developed new forms of medical research to serve its own interests.
