Death By Medicine takes a hard examination at the dominant medical paradigm contributing to America’s health crisis. Based on Gary Null’s ground breaking book on the hundreds of thousands of injuries and deaths caused by conventional medicine, the documentary looks at the medical industrial complex, the pharmaceutical industry’s usurpation of the nation’s medical schools, research, falsified drug clinical trials, peer reviewed scientific journals, and the complicity of federal health agencies to permit this to happen. The result is a medical system unfounded on sound science. Why is there a lack of oversight by government regulatory agencies and private interest lobbyists call the shots for national healthcare? From FDA and FBI raids on cherry and dairy farmers to the halls of Congress, we witness the hostile attack on the natural health industry. We witness what happens when a mercenary healthcare system and the failures of a just and fair healthcare policy leaves the US as the 37th healthcare system in the world. The result is the American medical system is broken and corrupted by money rather than scientific fact, and the answer is to create a new medical paradigm that addresses the health of people rather than raising of stock prices, careers and reputations.

BURLINGTON, Vt. – The Burlington police department unilaterally decided to sever ties with a U.S. Department of Defense program that allows law enforcement agencies to procure surplus military equipment, freeing the department from one significant form of federal influence and control.
A Burlington TV station reported on the move, saying the department had obtained two night vision devices through the program before deciding not to participate.
“There are times when military-style equipment is essential for public safety, but they are very rare,” Burlington Police Chief Brandon del Pozo said. “We have the resources to handle all but the most inconceivable public safety scenarios. Amassing a worst-case scenario arsenal of military equipment results in officers seeing everyday policework through a military lens. When I realized what a small role the military played in equipping our police, I concluded it was better to return the items.”
FEDERAL SURPLUS AND GRANT MONEY
Through the federal 1033 Program, local police departments procure military grade weapons, including automatic assault rifles, body armor and mine resistant armored vehicles – essentially unarmed tanks. Police departments can even get their hands on military helicopters and other aircraft.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) runs the “Homeland Security Grant Program,” which in 2013 gave more than $900 million in counterterrorism funds to state and local police. According to a 2012 Senate report, this money has been used to purchase tactical vehicles, drones, and even tanks with little obvious benefit to public safety. And, according to ProPublica, “In 1994, the Justice Department and the Pentagon funded a five-year program to adapt military security and surveillance technology for local police departments that they would otherwise not be able to afford.”
COMMAND AND CONTROL
“Arming ‘peace officers’ like they’re ready to occupy an enemy city is totally contrary to the society envisioned by the Founders,” Michael Boldin of the Tenth Amendment Center said, echoing del Pozo’s thoughts. “They’ve turned ‘protect and serve’ into ‘command and control.’”
In the 1980s, the federal government began arming, funding and training local police forces, turning peace officers into soldiers to fight in its unconstitutional “War on Drugs.” The militarization went into hyper-drive after 9/11 when a second front opened up – the “War on Terror.”
By stripping state and local police of this military-grade gear and requiring them to report on their acquisition and use, it makes them less likely to cooperate with the feds and removes incentives for partnerships.
THE WAY FORWARD
Very few police chiefs have the moral clarity demonstrated by del Pozo. We can’t rely on local police departments to turn their backs on all the free gear dangled in front of them by the feds. The vast majority won’t – not on their own.
But state and local governments can stop militarization of their police departments through laws and ordinances.
Earlier this year, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie signed a bill into law requiring law enforcement agencies to get approval from a local government body before applying for military equipment. This creates a transparent process and gives area residents an avenue to stop militarization altogether through local action.
Montana took things a step further, passing a law prohibiting police agencies from procuring certain types of military equipment at all.
Local governments don’t have to wait for the state to act. They control their local police departments, and they can generally restrict or even ban militarization on their own initiative.

French scholar Jacques Ellul is said to have asked a similar question circa 1978: “Is anyone really unable to see the difference between the United States and Hitler or Stalin?” No modern president in 1978 had engaged in mass murder, but several could be charged with getting into unnecessary wars. There was a great difference in political systems, but unfortunately there was also a notable similarity in the claims of sovereignty, territoriality and law-making. There was also a notable tendency for the United States to be adopting fascist and socialist ideas and creating a convergence of the political and economic systems toward those of Hitler and Stalin.
Fast forward 35 years. Today, the question is not so easily brushed off. One can make a very substantial case that the difference between Bush/Obama and Hitler/Stalin has narrowed alarmingly. I am thinking of aggressive wars, torture, show trials, renditions, abasement of rights like due process, attacks on free speech, claims of executive privileges and powers, executive orders, propaganda machinery, claims of the power to assassinate, undeclared wars, excessive executive powers, holding prisoners without trial, favoritism to particular interests, multiplication of arbitrary agencies and bureaucracies, a rising climate of fear, encouraging people to spy on one another, massive surveillance, internal martial policing and searches, and multiplication of laws. This list is no doubt incomplete.
Nazism with its 1,000 year Reich is messianic and so is Communism. U.S. leaders increasingly have adopted messianic goals, another major point of convergence.
this article came out last year ,I felt it was still relevant:
A would-be “underwear bomber” involved in a plot to attack a US-based jet was in fact working as an undercover informer with Saudi intelligence and the CIA, it has emerged.
The revelation is the latest twist in an increasingly bizarre story about the disruption of an apparent attempt by al-Qaida to strike at a high-profile American target using a sophisticated device hidden in the clothing of an attacker.
The plot, which the White House said on Monday had involved the seizing of an underwear bomb by authorities in the Middle East sometime in the last 10 days, had caused alarm throughout the US.
It has also been linked to a suspected US drone strike in Yemen where two Yemeni members of al-Qaida were killed by a missile attack on their car on Sunday, one of them a senior militant, Fahd Mohammed Ahmed al-Quso.
But the news that the individual at the heart of the bomb plot was in fact an informer for US intelligence is likely to raise just as many questions as it answers.
Citing US and Yemeni officials, Associated Press reported that the unnamed informant was working under cover for the Saudis and the CIA when he was given the bomb, which was of a new non-metallic type aimed at getting past airport security.
The informant then turned the device over to his handlers and has left Yemen, the officials told the news agency. The LA Times, which first broke the news that the plot had been a “sting operation”, said that the bomb plan had also provided the intelligence leads that allowed the strike on Quso.
Earlier John Brennan, Barack Obama’s top counter-terrorism adviser and a former CIA official, told ABC’s Good Morning America that authorities are “confident that neither the device nor the intended user of this device pose a threat to us”.
US officials have said the plot was detected in its early stages and that no American airliner was ever at risk.
The FBI is conducting forensic tests on the bomb as a first step towards discovering whether it would have cleared existing airport scanning systems. Dianne Feinstein, the Democratic senator for California who heads the Senate intelligence committee, gave an early hint when she said that she had been briefed about the device which she called “undetectable”.
But AP quoted an unnamed US official as saying current detection methods probably would have spotted the shape of the explosive in the latest device.
Just how major an escalation in threat is posed by the bomb remains unclear. Security sources have told news agencies that it was a step up in levels of sophistication from the original underwear bomb that was used in a failed attempt to blow up an airliner over Detroit on Christmas Day in 2009.
The device used a more refined detonation system, and Brennan said “it was a threat from a standpoint of the design”.
When it comes to who made the device the focus is on an al-Qaida’s offshoot, Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP). Matthew Levitt, a counter-terrorism expert at the Washington Institute, said that the interception of the plot amounted to a significant achievement for US security agencies.
He said: “The FBI is holding the device, which suggests that this was done by having boots on the ground. This was a sophisticated operation that shows we are making in-roads in serious places.”
Banks have been taking homeowners to court long after they lose their properties in foreclosure, extending the nightmare of mortgages gone bad.
What’s happening is lenders are pursuing former mortgage holders for old debts, like the “deficiency balance.”
A deficiency balance, also known as the “underwater amount,” is the difference between the amount of the mortgage and the actual property value. Sometimes, the difference can total hundreds of thousands of dollars, and the homeowner is still on the hook to pay the deficiency balance even after losing the property.
“Deficiency judgments are absolutely devastating to the foreclosed home buyer both as a matter of immediate financial impact and income tax consequence,” John Mixon, a recently retired professor at the University of Houston Law Center who has studied deficiency judgments for the past 30 years, told The Washington Post.
Banks are permitted to go after deficiency judgments in 40 states, as well as the District of Columbia. In New Jersey, lenders have up to 56 years to collect debts and in Massachusetts 60 years. In Pennsylvania, there is no time limit at all.
Part of the nightmare for foreclosed homeowners is that the lenders often wait several years until the homeowner has recovered financially before they go after the debt. By this time, significant interest has been added to the original debt amount.
In addition to banks going after these costly judgments, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the two quasi-governmental lending agencies, are seeking them in order to recoup money lost in the crisis. They claim that they only go after what is known as “strategic defaulters,” people who stopped paying their mortgage loan, but continued to pay other bills.

Note: As I continue covering the porngate scandal I am asking whistleblowers to do the right thing and still report tips on government corruption regarding child pornography set-ups and statistics padding to firstname.lastname@example.org. I am sure with Anonymous lurking around and making bold statements through mass emailing, they will likely start targeting government employees using internet hacking as that is their specialty then investigate government networks to find evidence that they are moving child porn files around to set people up with. I know many government workers and agents are afraid of getting in trouble and or being arrested on child porn charges themselves for speaking out but this trend cannot keep continuing as many innocent Americans will likely kill themselves or have permanent psychological repercussions as a result of these wrongful child porn raids and sex offender convictions.
Right now it appears that the hacktivist group named Anonymous with the Anonops decentralized branch has claimed that they have sent emails to all of the media around the internet world. They have claimed they will expose and gather evidence that government employees are directly or indirectly planting child pornography on people’s computers to pad the child porn bust statistics, taking care of political enemies in all isles of politics, and keeping up the police arrest quotas as a majority of child porn busts seems to be using local police and detectives for the ICAC while the feds conduct Operation Flicker.
So far the mainstream media has not made a peep which will make it hard to determine if Anonymous had really contacted the media around the internet world as there is so many alternative and mainstream media outlets, the amount of emails this group will need is likely in the tens of thousands however if they are committed to their cause, along with all the volunteer hacktivists, they will likely reach that anywhere between a week to three days.
Here is the pasted content and subject right from an email that appears to be an Anonops email address hosted on Tormail:
Subject: This is Anonymous, with a special Announcement for the Press and the world
Dear Entire News media of the Internet world,
We are now aware that thousands to tens of thousands of innocent children and adults are being set up with child pornography which includes Andrew Rose whom downloaded Mp3 files with child porn attached to the MP3 tags. We watch how so many innocent people are being paraded around in your news programs as child porn watching child molesters and this angers us. We wish to find out the truth then take action. Now the US Government plans to punish whistleblowers and any reporters whom meet with them so that they can continue to plant child pornography on more kids and adults computers to set them up as child sex molesters and offenders then parade them on the news as disgusting child sexing monsters when the truth is they been set up from the gitgo. Then added onto a sex offender registry and beaten and tarnished in their communities. Many to all have to live in dumpsters and homeless because they cannot find a job once they are tarnished on the registry.
We’ve heard the story of Andrew Rose and other mainstream media and alternative media reporters, political activists, and even small bloggers are being targeted and framed with child porn, drugs, or other felony conviction level contraband or people being paid off to start infighting or making violent political statements as a result of the corrupt establishment by the Bilderberg Group that has taken over various government and police departments throughout the world including the United States. These child porn busting task forces are a fraud. They didn’t even prosecute the over 5,000 Pentagon employees for their purchasing and downloading of child porn on the tax payers dime. These people don’t care about stopping child exploitation and are only used as a political tool of destruction to destroy good and innocent people’s lives through the corrupt and costly criminal injustice system which costs hundreds of thousands of dollars just to prove innocence with attorney fees. Poor folks can’t even get an attorney until they are indicted and forced to sit in jail for months and months until the prosecutor is satisfied with making innocent people suffer like hell. Some form of justice we’ve got eh!
We’ve sent emails to every alternative media, mainstream media, and other activists emails we got through various email collecting agents to get the message of Anonymous out to everyone.
Anonymous IRC chats and other mediums of contact had to keep turning away people begging us to prove them innocent of child pornography and they were set up by a trojan or virus that shares child porn. We hated this and now we have decided to send a message to the entire Internet World and to the corrupt FBI.
Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, Immigrations and Customs Enforcement Operation Flicker, Federal Bureau of Investigation, and other tragedy law enforcement agencies, WE KNOW YOU ARE PLANTING CHILD PORN ON INNOCENT PEOPLE’S COMPUTERS using trojans, physical file set-ups using flash drives and sd cards, putting child porn inside the MP3 tag headers of music files on Limewire and eMule to entrap music downloaders as child porno possessors, and we know all the child porn fighting organizations get kickbacks and sustained funding for every arrest and prosecution you get according to various documents we have received through our agents we have everywhere in every level of government. How shameful you make money off of ruining people’s lives forever including twelve year boys, 17 year olds and other little kids and teens. You FBI people must love putting all your enemies on sex offender registries, that must really make you enjoy yourselves thinking of us all rotting in prison with the dumb juries doing blanket convictions on innocent people just for being accused of pornography.
We have a message for you, We will find out the truth!!!! We will find out who in the government is planting child porn on innocent people’s computers then we shall publish all their names on the real “Anonymous sex offender registry” which lists every government employee that has set up innocent people with child pornography and this also includes police officers on the task forces. This will also go out to all the media and all the child porn sharers in the force that had innocent people condemned to mandatory sex offender reporting, the truth will be known about ya. Beware you aren’t Anonymous crooked cops and agents whom enjoy setting up people with child pornography. You must be proud of yourselfs pedomakers or pedobuilders.
To all child exploiting government people whom set the innocents up: We shall expose the truth on YOU
We are Anonymous
We never forgive
We never forget
We are legion
Little does Anonymous realize that my friends alternative media website is no longer but nevertheless Anonymous wants the whole world to get their message that they are sick and tired of innocent people begin set up with child pornography including a autistic teen named Andrew Rose whom got in trouble when he was around 17 years old. Andrew’s family has run a support group on Facebook and amount of membership has grown exponentially since the Porngate scandal investigating articles started coming out on alternative media website with the exception of big name ones like Infowars and Activistpost as those are the most reputable and will take to research and confirm things before those websites start writing articles about the next big government scandal since Bengazigate, Climategate, IRSGate, and Watergate.
