EDITORIAL for Monday 19 March 2018

Welcome to the current edition of i2P (Information to Pharmacists) E-Magazine dated Monday 19 March 2018.
Disillusion exists among all health care practitioners (including pharmacists) in varying degrees, as to how they have to practice their profession in a way that is unfulfilling.
And in the case of pharmacy, its “best and brightest” are deserting the ship very early in their career, because of their dissatisfaction with the professional landscape they have inherited.
In part, it is because pharmacy lacks a dynamic leadership that is bogged down with constraints, that in most cases, they do not understand.

Or if they are aware, they are afraid of rocking the boat because it might create an adverse political response that will, in some way, be detrimental to the progression of their own careers.

In this edition we are raising the profile of medical fascism and the various tactics employed to control various population segments.
From the diatribe projected at the profession of pharmacy by the AMA virtually non-stop regarding the timing of the promotion of flu vaccine, the sudden attacks on the quality of pharmacist-initiated “sick notes”, the constant reference to vaccine usage being “evidence-based” when it has a range of safety issues suppressed, the notion that patients miss out if a vaccine is administered by a pharmacist, the constant denigration of alternate medicine not being evidence-based while asserting the fiction that the illness model of mainstream medicine is backed by evidence.
In this latter instance the reality is that mainstream medicine has a body of evidence reported by notable “insiders” to be up to 50 percent fabricated or fraudulent.
People are beginning to understand what has gone wrong and why various front groups that form part of the medical fascist movement have become so aggressive.
In fact, their goal is to make the mainstream pharma illness model of medicine a mandatory model allowing countless numbers of people to become injured through iatrogenic causes and a death rate that is mind-blowing!

Investigative journalist, Jon Rappoport, has been turning the spotlight on the above issues for a very long time.
He eloquently educates his readers by providing information that can eventually translate to knowledge.
With knowledge comes understanding and an increase in power.
What follows is Jon’s illustration of why Big Pharma is at odds with natural health:

Why does modern medicine have a big problem with natural health?
By Jon Rappoport
Well, there is the money, of course.
When millions of people forego expensive and toxic medical drugs; when they rarely see conventional doctors; when they don’t receive vaccinations and don’t have their children vaccinated; when they opt for natural remedies; when, worst of all, THEY STAY HEALTHY, this is a hammer blow to drug-based medicine.
These “natural health” people are also going against The Plan, which is a cradle-to-grave system, whereby humans are diagnosed with 30 or 40 diseases and disorders during their lifetime—requiring large amounts of toxic and debilitating drugs—and then they die.
The effects of the drugs are labeled “diseases,” which in turn are treated with more harmful drugs, resulting in new diagnoses of “diseases,” and so on.
It’s a self-feeding, self-replicating parade of destruction.
You can see the final stages in nursing homes, where the elderly are warehoused.
On their night tables are a dozen or so drugs.
The tragic end-game.
This pathetic, vicious, pseudoscientific medical assault is praised to the skies, as “the best” in human care.
On television, hired hands parade through show after show, insisting that modern medicine is the most brilliant program ever devised for the human race.
At the same time, untold millions of people who opt for natural health expose, by their choices, this titanic lie.
Here is how medical propaganda works, in the big picture.
When delivered by competent caring personnel, acute crisis emergency care can produce remarkable results.
People who have been damaged in accidents, who develop sudden life-threatening situations (unconnected to medical drugs) can be put back together.
Propagandists then parlay this specific success by pretending it applies over the whole field of medical practice, in every aspect.
This assertion is absurd, false, and highly dangerous.
The case of a person who is lying on the road after a car crash, and a person who is suffering from chronic immune-system weakness, are as far apart from each other as an ant in Idaho and a rocket on the moon.
The propagandists’ job is to make these two people “the same.”
They both need medical care, and medical care is wonderful.
The big lie.
More and more people are waking up to this deception, and they are pursuing non-medical means to arrive at a better state of health and maintain it.
The scale is tipping in the direction of natural health–herbs, nutritional supplements, proper food, exercise, clean water, “alternative” practitioners.
Medical propaganda is on a long decline of failure.
That problem is very worrying to the medical cartel.
When you’ve had populations under your control for a long time, with the simplest kind of public relations; when you’ve been very sure your tactics were working; when you’ve blasted the same messages with the same rewarding results; you suffer from overconfidence.
When your tactics don’t work anymore, you don’t know what to do.
Your only option is trying to MANDATE medical treatment.
You put populations in a box.
You demand they obey.
Now you’re heading toward a showdown.
At what point will your prisoners decide they’ve had enough?
Here is a statement to shake up the princes of modern medicine:
“The combined death rate from scarlet fever, diphtheria, whooping cough and measles among children up to fifteen shows that nearly 90 percent of the total decline in mortality between 1860 and 1965 had occurred before the introduction of antibiotics and widespread immunization. In part, this recession may be attributed to improved housing and to a decrease in the virulence of micro-organisms, but by far the most important factor was a higher host-resistance due to better nutrition.” Ivan Illich, Medical Nemesis, Bantam Books, 1977
For decades, authors have been punching holes in medical myths.
Their efforts have not gone in vain.
Educated readers have been taking their findings to heart.
The truth has been trickling up, down, and sideways in the culture.
Remember, we are talking about people’s view of, and concern for, their own bodies.
There is nothing abstract about this.
The desire for knowledge is intimate.
empty word from on high, spouted by experts, can easily take a back seat.
When the issue is pain and suffering vs. well-being, people will shrug off what they’re supposed to think and they will dig for answers.
Here are several statements from a widely beloved American physician, Robert Mendelsohn.
During his life, his views served to awaken readers all over the world:
“Modern Medicine would rather you die using its remedies than live by using what physicians call quackery.”
“Almost half of the 100,000 or so surgeons we actually do have right now are superfluous. Those 50,000 or so extra unsheathed scalpels do a lot of damage.”
“The greatest threat of childhood diseases lies in the dangerous and ineffectual efforts made to prevent them through mass immunization…..There is no convincing scientific evidence that mass inoculations can be credited with eliminating any childhood disease.”
“When I was Senior Pediatric Consultant to the Department of Mental Health in Illinois, I cut out a certain kind of operation that was being performed on mongoloid children with heart defects. The stated purpose of the operation was to improve oxygen supply to the brain. The real purpose, of course, was to improve the state’s residency programs in cardiovascular surgery [by training new surgeons], because nothing beneficial happened to the brains of mongoloid children—and the surgeons knew that. The whole idea was absurd. And deadly, since the operation had a fairly high mortality rate. Naturally, the university people were very upset when I cut out the operation. They couldn’t figure out a better use for the mongoloid children, and, besides, it was important to train people. In prepaid group practices where surgeons are paid a steady salary not tied to how many operations they perform, hysterectomies and tonsillectomies occur only about one-third as often as in fee-for-service situations.”
“I can remember when if a hospital’s incidence of Caesarean deliveries went above four or five percent, there was a full scale investigation. The present level is around twenty-five percent. There are no investigations at all. And in some hospitals the rate is pushing fifty percent.”
“Today your child has about as much chance of contracting diphtheria as he does of being bitten by a cobra.” [In the DPT vaccine, the “D” stands for diphtheria.]
Mendelsohn, Ivan Illich, and many other rebel authors have cut across the full range of medical propaganda.
They’ve raised red flags on every front.
You can’t overestimate the effect they’ve had.
In private meetings, medical cartel front men complain, “The people aren’t listening to us!”
They’re right.
That’s what happens when gross lies and deceptions are spread out across the planet.

You can diagnose and damage some of the people some of the time, but you can’t damage all the people all the time.”

The lead article for this edition exemplifies Jon Rappoport’s experience extracted from his commentary above.

When your tactics don’t work anymore, you don’t know what to do.
Your only option is trying to MANDATE medical treatment.
You put populations in a box.
You demand they obey.”

The response to the global failure of last year’s flu vaccine appears to be little more than a band aid, and one with additional safety issues as well.
The response from health leaders is one reflective of a “play book” that is part of a global pharma marketing plan.
These people deny, in particular, the lack of efficacy and safety of the flu vaccine, and indeed all vaccines.
They project biased opinion rather than evidence.
And for vaccines, good evidence of safety and efficacy simply does not exist.
Experienced health workers are well aware of these issues and have very low vaccination rates among their ranks.
The playbook dictates that when failure occurs it must be aggressively denied and to enforce mandatory regulation when compliance is not being observed.
Democratic rights are crushed in this process so unless people speak up to defend their rights, medical fascism becomes the victor.

Jon Rappoport, investigative journalist, illustrates how medical fascism has begun to get more aggressive as more people in the general population are becoming more knowledgeable in the ways they are being manipulated.
This manipulation manifests itself in the loss of personal health freedom – a freedom of choice –the basic right we take for granted in a democratic society.
We see this happening in the world of natural health and unsafe vaccination policies.
Medical fascism is fuelled through obscene profits generated by global drug companies, which in turn are used to subvert the political process that underwrites democracy.
If that process is not contested vigorously, it will spread to create a loss of all other freedoms, and a dictatorship of a coalition of global corporates representing banks, media, energy and industrial complexes and, of course, global pharma’s.
One-world government is not a myth – it is accelerating towards a reality.

Gerald Quigley is back with an article on the misuse of the health complaints system.
One of the tools of medical fascism is basically a business model built around the process of complaining about an issue to a health regulator in the hope of initiating a court action by the regulator, or at the very least involving the health worker (the target of the complaint) having to engage a legal representative at great expense.
The business model employs the use of bulk templates to minimise time involvement in generating complaints in bulk through associated people, or to multiple regulating agencies.
Associates can be in the form of manipulated medical students.
The business model also involves a coalition of other organisations that are controlled or influenced by other medical fascists using the same template format in support of the complaint initiator.
The majority of complaints fail, but partially achieve the objective of being disruptive.
The cost of operating this business model would be underwritten by the beneficiary of these activities – and who that would be is something that should be investigated by health regulators.

WHO has made a statement saying that cannabis should be decriminalised world-wide because existing laws cause health discrimination.
In Australia, patients are being actively discriminated against as police are instructed to enforce existing laws and close down “illegal” supplies, leaving critically ill people with no workable solutions for their health problems.
Flawed health policy generates bad laws and lowered community respect for policy and laws – it is another form of medical fascism.
Yet again, Pharmacy is in a position to provide solutions very simply and simultaneously create opportunity for the profession to treat chronically ill patients efficiently and economically.
Pharmacy leaders need to be proactive in the regulatory area because other health professionals are actively competing to lock pharmacy out of any opportunity whatsoever.
Potential for pharmacists is found in the compounding of THC and CBD in specific ratios to match the best result for patients with chronic illness.
Further pharmacist potential also lies in using cannabinoids in harm minimisation programs involving opioid dependencies and as an adjunct for the management of pain.
Pharmacists also need to be active and have a voice in the regulation of these substances ensuring that maximum patient access can be obtained through the application of Schedule 3 of the Poison’s Act.

“The science is settled”.
So say the people who promote vaccination as some form of extreme medical ideology.
“Scientism is settled” is a more accurate description of the manipulation of the science surrounding vaccines – and it is certainly “unsettling” to hear the dishonest claims that blare out in all forms of media.
Scientism is simply another form of medical fascism.
“First do no harm” is the concept that underwrites all medical practice.
Australian vaccination policy is so poor and damaging, that it beggars belief that legislators can be so close to manufacturer sales objectives as to guarantee them a market through coercive legislation that involves simultaneous removal of patient choice.
The evidence supporting vaccine policy failure and its lack of safety is becoming so voluminous that it will eventually destroy the unnatural power alliance that desperately tries to hold it all together.

Harvey Mackay is back providing a toolkit to back the concept of “street smarts” to combat unusual forms of aggression (including medical fascism).
“Street Smarts” represent an essential toolkit of acquired techniques that is really a mechanism for defence and survival.
The old saying “When the going gets tough, the tough get going” is an appropriate guideline for those managers with a highly developed and instinctual toolkit that stimulates action – a quality that alerts good managers to head off a developing issue that could result in a serious problem.
It’s an essential skill not promoted in pharmacy generally, and that results in pharmacists not being proactive and grabbing an opportunity when it presents itself.
