Psychiatry Doesn't Do Psychotherapy Anymore
Despite a trend that started as early as the late 1980s, Gardiner Harris writing in The New York Times yesterday seems to bemoan the fact that most psychiatrists don't practice psychotherapy any longer.

That is all the Mental Health (psychiatry) has been since day one.. Drug pushers with political intent. Part of a coup d'etat that was planned by the GOP under the leadership of Bush Sr (1960 - 70's's) who was a former CEO with Eli Lilly. The involvement goes back to the MKULTRA era (1950's to 1974 and beyond) and included the Hippie generation. In spite of Congressional Investigation of the GOP (1974) where records were destroyed by the CIA the political party (GOP) continued forward in the drugging of America regardless of the number of deaths and people that had/ have been mentally compromised.(That included the public school system, the prison system and the Military today.) Reagan as president with his VP, Bush Sr (1980's) was involved in the gun trade with Iran as well as the South American Drug Contra. They further were involved with the GOP in the Social Service Act that supported the money (each state) for the Health and Rehabilitation Services for the elderly and the children in what is now called the Child Protection Services and that gave boost to the Mental Health and Pharmacutical Industry. The GOP administration of that time (Reagan / Bush Sr forged upon the Federal Disability to pay to the school boards (each state) for each child diagnosed with a fraudulent mental disorder such as ADD/ADHD or bipolar disorder which enriched the Mental Health and Pharmacutical Industry. Bush Sr son George was another person involved in the political wrong doing with Mental Health parity and a program called TMAP that originated in Texas under his Governorship in which he attempted to push on the nation as President.
There is a clear political danger in the drugging of the Military today in which the Pharmacutical mind drugs or raw material comes from the Asian countries. Any disruption in the transport of the mind drugs could have devistating consequences on our army in a war zone.
The mental health industry has no medical model. No evidence based medicine and lied about chemical balance to drug the nation. There is no imaging divice or test to determine a defective brain from a normal brain. The industry wouldn't know a normal brain from and abnormal brain. All research on any Gene theory is false.

Republican New World Order
Bush set in motion the rights to declare federal martial law by the President, alone and without Congress.
It does so by revising the Insurrection Act, a set of laws that limits the President's ability to deploy troops within the United States. The Insurrection Act (10 U.S.C.331 -335) has historically, along with the Posse Comitatus Act (18 U.S.C.1385), helped to enforce strict prohibitions on military involvement in domestic law enforcement.
Public Law 109-364, or the "John Warner Defense Authorization Act of 2007" (H.R.5122)(2), which was signed by the commander in chief on October 17th, 2006, in a private Oval Office ceremony, allows the President to declare a "public emergency" and station troops anywhere in America and take control of state-based National Guard units without the consent of the governor or local authorities, in order to "suppress public disorder."
President Bush seized this unprecedented power on the very same day that he signed the equally odious Military Commissions Act of 2006. In a sense, the two laws complement one another. One allows for torture and detention abroad, while the other seeks to enforce acquiescence at home, preparing to order the military onto the streets of America. Remember, the term for putting an area under military law enforcement control is precise; the term is "martial law."

Bush also armed the local governments with military equipment.
The law also facilitates militarized police round-ups and detention of protesters, so called "illegal aliens," "potential terrorists" and other "undesirables" for detention in facilities already contracted for and under construction by Halliburton.
Pasted from < http://www.towardfreedom.com/home/content/vie... ;
Make no mistake about it: the de-facto repeal of the Posse Comitatus Act (PCA) is an ominous assault on American democratic tradition and jurisprudence. The 1878 Act, which reads, "Whoever, except in cases and under circumstances expressly authorized by the Constitution or Act of Congress, willfully uses any part of the Army or Air Force as a posse comitatus or otherwise to execute the laws shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than two years, or both," is the only U.S. criminal statute that outlaws military operations directed against the American people under the cover of 'law enforcement.' As such, it has been the best protection we've had against the power-hungry intentions of an unscrupulous and reckless executive, an executive intent on using force to enforce its will.

For Some Troops, Drug Cocktails Have Deadly Results
In his last months alive, Senior Airman Anthony Mena rarely left home without a backpack filled with medications.
He returned from his second deployment to Iraq complaining of back pain, insomnia, anxiety and nightmares. Doctors diagnosed post-traumatic stress disorder and prescribed powerful cocktails of psychiatric drugs and narcotics.
Yet his pain only deepened, as did his depression.I have almost given up hope, he told a doctor in 2008, medical records show.I should have died in Iraq.
Airman Mena died instead in his Albuquerque apartment, on July 21, 2009, five months after leaving the Air Force on a medical discharge. A toxicologist found eight prescription medications in his blood, including three antidepressants, a sedative, a sleeping pill and two potent painkillers.
Yet his death was no suicide, the medical examiner concluded. What killed Airman Mena was not an overdose of any one drug, but the interaction of many. He was 23.
After a decade of treating thousands of wounded troops, the militarys medical system is awash in prescription drugs and the results have sometimes been deadly.
By some estimates, well over 300,000 troops have returned from Iraq or Afghanistan with P.T.S.D., depression, traumatic brain injury or some combination of those. The Pentagon has looked to pharmacology to treat those complex problems, following the lead of civilian medicine. As a result, psychiatric drugs have been used more widely across the military than in any previous war.
But those medications, along with narcotic painkillers, are being increasingly linked to a rising tide of other problems, among them drug dependency, suicide and fatal accidents sometimes from the interaction of the drugs themselves. An Army report on suicide released last year documented the problem, saying one-third of the force was on at least one prescription medication.
Prescription drug use is on the rise, the report said, noting that medications were involved in one-third of the record 162 suicides by active-duty soldiers in 2009. An additional 101 soldiers died accidentally from the toxic mixing of prescription drugs from 2006 to 2009.
Im not a doctor, but there is something inside that tells me the fewer of these things we prescribe, the better off well be, Gen. Peter W. Chiarelli, the vice chief of staff of the Army who has led efforts on suicide, said in an interview.

Child psychiatry is sick with hidden conflicts of interest
Child psychiatry is sick with hidden conflicts of interest
By Dr. Leonard Sax
Sunday, December 14th 2008, 4:00 AM
When I first began writing prescriptions for children 22 years ago, it was unusual for a child to be taking powerful psychiatric drugs. Today it's common. How did we get here?
Dr. Joseph Biederman is part of the answer. He's an important guy. His title is "chief of pediatric psychopharmacology" at Massachusetts General Hospital, the main teaching hospital for Harvard Medical School. Pediatricians and family doctors look to him, and doctors like him, for guidance about what they should do with problem kids. For the past two decades, Biederman has pushed the use of medications for treating ADHD and bipolar disorder. Over the past two decades, the use of medications for treating those disorders has soared.
Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa), recognizing how much influence Biederman has in promoting these medications for children, wondered whether the doctor might be taking money from drug companies. When first asked, Biederman admitted to taking perhaps "a couple hundred thousand dollars" from pharmaceutical companies. When he was asked to take another look, it turned out that Biederman and a colleague had accepted more than $1.6 million from the drug companies. And they hadn't told anybody.
Or consider the case of Dr. Fred Goodwin. After stepping down as director of the National Institute for Mental Health, Goodwin moved on to serve as the host of the NPR program "The Infinite Mind." Goodwin didn't think he needed to tell anybody that the drug companies were paying him $1.3 million, even as he reassured listeners on his program about the safety of powerful psychiatric medications for children. Last month, after his connections to the drug industry came to light, NPR canceled his program.

US Kids Represent Psychiatric Drug Goldmine
Monday, 14 December 2009, 11:06 am
Column: Evelyn Pringle
Prescriptions for psychiatric drugs increased 50 percent with children in the US, and 73 percent among adults, from 1996 to 2006, according to a study in the May/June 2009 issue of the journal Health Affairs. Another study in the same issue of Health Affairs found spending for mental health care grew more than 30 percent over the same ten-year period, with almost all of the increase due to psychiatric drug costs.

Obamas Preemption Memo: Limiting Regulatory Preemption of State Common Law Claims
By Matt Melamed
Public Justice Kazan-Wallace Fellow
On May 20, 2009, President Obama reversed one of the most nefarious practices of the Bush administration by issuing a memorandum (Preemption Memo) aimed at curbing federal preemption by regulatory fiat.(The memorandum is available at http://www.whitehouse.gov/the_press_office/Pr... .) With the Preemption Memo, the President made clear his intent to limit federal agencies efforts to preempt state law claims merely by declaring that they would conflict with federal regulatory purposes. This position represents a radical shift from that taken by the Bush administration, which aggressively encouraged federal agencies to seek to preempt state tort law in precisely that fashion. For the first time in a long time, consumer advocates have an ally in the executive branch.
The Bush Administrations Stealth Tort Reform Effort
The Preemption Memo is described more fully below. But its importance can only be understood against the backdrop of the Bush administrations attempt to utilize federal agencies to implement stealth tort reform. Since 2005, seven federal agencies have issued over 60 proposed or final rules that were accompanied by introductory statements commonly known as preambles stating that the rule preempts state tort law on the ground that lawsuits involving the regulated matters would conflict with the agencies regulatory goals. See, e.g., Press Release, American Association for Justice, FOIAs Reveal How Bush Administration Made Complete Immunity for Negligent Corporations a Top Priority (Oct. 15, 2008), available at:
The most notorious example of this practice is the preamble to a 2006 United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) labeling regulation, which states that the FDAs approval of a prescription drugs label preempts conflicting or contrary State law, including lawsuits seeking to hold drug manufacturers liable for failing adequately to warn of a drugs dangers. 71 Fed. Reg. 3922, 3934-35 (2006). This preemption preamble was particularly egregious because it represented a 180-degree reversal of the FDAs prior views on the matter: before the Bush administration took power, the FDA enthusiastically endorsed tort litigation as complementing the agencys ability to ensure the safety of prescription drugs.(As discussed below, in Wyeth v. Levine, 129 S. Ct. 1187 (2009),the U.S. Supreme Court held that the 2006 labeling regulations preemptive preamble was not entitled to any deference.)
The intention behind this and other Bush-era preemption preambles is clear: by attempting to strip consumers of their rights to sue, the Bush administration was pandering to the business community, which seeks at all costs to immunize itself from tort liability. Indeed, Bush administration officials had an unusually close relationship with the industries they regulated. Again, the 2006 FDA labeling regulation is instructive. As first proposed, the preamble to the labeling regulation specifically stated that the FDA did not intend to preempt state law failure-to-warn claims. See Press Release, American Association for Justice, supra. Less than six months before issuing the final regulation, FDAs chief counsel met with legal representatives from the largest pharmaceutical companies. Id. After the meeting, the preamble was changed to state that FDA approval of a drug label preempted state common law failure-to-warn claims.

The link between Psychiatry, drugs and Suicide
Dr. Julian Whitaker, M.D.
One has to ask the question "Why are so many murders and suicides taking place by people who are on supposedly 'anti-psychotic' or 'anti-depressant' medications?" If drugs such as Prozac, Zoloft, Ritalin, Xanax, Paxil, Thorazine and other related "anti-depressants" are actually an effective treatment, one would naturally expect suicides, murders and violent behavior to be decreasing, yet this is apparently the reverse of what is happening.
"...virtually all of the gun-related massacres that have made headlines over the past decade have had one thing in common: They were perpetrated by people taking Prozac, Zoloft, Luvox, Paxil or a related antidepressant drug."
[The above link reflects the murders and killings that happened to innocent people because of psychotropic drugs.[b] The profession has no credibility and has deliberately harmed the people including their children!
It should be noted that many of the psychotropic drugs have the FDA black warning label.

To understand the dirty underhanded (political) way of producing mental illness and depression you may want to read:
The FDA Ban of L-Tryptophan:
Politics, Profits and Prozac
by Dean Wolfe Manders, Ph.D.
From: Prescription for Nutritional Healing by James F Balch, MD and Phillis A. Balch, CNC
Tryptophan is an essential amino acid that is necessary for the production of vitamin B3 (niacin). It is used by the brain to produce serotonin, a necessary neurotransmitter that transfers nerve impulses from one cell to another and is responsible for normal sleep. Consequently, tryptophan helps to combat depression and insomnia and to stabilize moods. It helps to control hyperactivity in children, alleviates stress, is good for the heart, aids in weight control by reducing appetite, and enhances the release of growth hormone. It is good
for migraine headaches, and may reduce some of the effects of nicotine. A sufficient amount of vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) is necessary for the formation of tryptophan, which, in turn, is required for the formation of serotonin. A lack of tryptophan and magnesium may contribute to coronary artery spasms.
The best dietary sources of tryptophan include brown rice, cottage cheese, meat, peanuts, and soy protein.
This amino acid is not available in supplement form in the United States. In November of 1989, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reported evidence linking L-tryptophan supplements to a blood disorder called eosinophilia-myalgia syndrome (EMS). Several hundred cases of this illness-which is characterized b~ an elevated white blood cell count and can also cause such symptoms as fatigue, muscular pain, respiratory ailments, edema, and rash-were reported, and at least one death was attributed to the outbreak. After the CDC established an association between the blood disorder and products containing L~tryptophan in New Mexico, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration first warned consumers to stop taking L-tryptophan supplements, then recalled all products in which L-tryptophan was the sole or a major component. Subsequent research showed that it was contaminants in the supplements, not the tryptophan, that was probably responsible for the problem, but tryptophan supplements are still banned from the market in the United States.
Note that tryptophan (due to protest) was reinstated to the market place however: Read below.
NOTE: B6 is important as a catalyst for Tryptophan to work:
Alert: Protect Your Right To Natural and Bio-available Vitamin B-6!
Human beings cannot live without vitamin B-6. It is also important for the prevention of cancer and the prevention and treatment of seizures, anemia, mental disorders including schizophrenia, carpal tunnel syndrome, and other conditions. Its effect on carpal tunnel can seem almost miraculous.
A natural form of the vitamin, Pyridoxamine, was recently yanked off the market by the FDA. Why? Because a pharmaceutical company, BioStratum, wanted sole use of pyridoxamine in a drug, a drug which may or may not ever appear. The company filed a so-called citizens petition and the FDA agreed, notwithstanding protests from ANH-USA, other organizations, and thousands of citizens. You might ask: how can Pharma take a supplement off the market and claim exclusive use of it as a prescription drug? The FDA does not presently feel obligated to answer this question.

Mental Health Courts....
Could anything be more dangerous to our democracy. 1st Amendment right violation to free speech or lack there of in speaking to Mental Health worker and self incrimination.
Drugging of Americans (world population for power and control)
NCSC International under the National Center for State Courts .
The changing of the Judiciary with the Mental Health Courts in the USA is based on State initiative without any Congressional hearing or approval. That should be of interest because it circumvents the Federal Judicial Courts in establishing any rules and regulation over the lower State court and allows the private industry of the Mental Health to regulate with punitive actions including incarceration of the public and allows a free hand in the mind drugging of the population which could be considered under civil law cruel and unusual punishment, based on the evidence of the brains biological changes from the drugging. This would further lead the court to making decision without any judicial safeguards and the decision made by the Mental Health Court would be based on hearsay from an industry that has no science no evidence based medicine.
Further the movement of the Mental Health Court across the USA is creating the push to license Psychologist to prescribe Pharmaceutical mind drugs and has already created the telepsychiatry for regulating the Mental Health Court decision to man the court hand for power and profits over the people and to eliminates Health care provisions consented by the governed under (Article 5).
\The new legislation proposed today for the Electronic Mental Health Records fits into movement in the changes to America's Judiciary also.
The international court changes (IMO) are indicative of the New World Order as mentioned under the H W Bush Presidency.
Establishing State Mental Health Courts
Shut down the mental health industry before they damage more people. There is no medicine and there has never been a cure for mental illness.
They are political and based on hearsay. They are drugging our nation for political reasons.
