Roberts Fingered As Pro Big Pharma Stooge Back In 2009 By Chris Barr

Pfederal government? Last week the unholy trinity of BIG Government, BIG Pharma and BIG Media celebrated results with the drug Celebrex made by Pfizer.  Pfizer is the largest pharmaceutical company in the world. The celebrated Celebrex drug results were only from short term studies regarding a precursor to colon cancer.  Much better results with the essential nutrient selenium from a much longer study regarding actual colon cancer were roundly criticized ten years ago and have since been soundly ignored. Last month the same unholy trinity as above noted that dietary ‘supplements’ were ineffective against arthritis pain while crowing about the effectiveness of the drug Celebrex against arthritis pain. The lengthy ‘news’ story about the study by AP (Associated Press or… Read More →

Forced Medical Intervention; Disrespecting Informed Consent

by: Craig Stellpflug (NaturalNews) Criminals have more constitutional rights than medical patients. Gone are the rights of due process and second opinions. It seems that patients are somehow bereft of Sixth Amendment rights to counsel. When doctors are pitted against patients, the courts often defer to the fallible physicians' demands that patients submit their bodies to them. Forced care condones coercion and denies fundamental, medical principles of informed consent and informed refusal. Case and pointSamantha Burton was 25 weeks pregnant when her membranes ruptured. Following good sense, she sought help from her obstetrician, Dr. Jana Bures-Forsthoefel. When Samantha tried to leave the hospital for a second opinion this outrageous doctor refused to allow her to leave and then grabbed a… Read More →

City of Tulsa Destroys Woman’s Edible Landscaping of Medicinal Plants

by: Ethan A. Huff (NaturalNews) An Oklahoma woman is the latest victim of government terrorism after City of Tulsa code enforcement officials came to her house and illegally tore up her entire edible garden, which contained over 100 varieties of medicinal plants. Denise Morrison was in full compliance with local laws concerning her garden, and yet city officials proceeded to both violate a court order, and willfully deny Denise of her legal right to grow food on her own property by illegally destroying it. KOTV NewsOn6.com, which was the first to break the heartbreaking story, explains a situation that is becoming disturbingly common in America today. A phantom "neighbor" allegedly complains about the victim's yard, which prompts overzealous city officials… Read More →

Nutrition Blogger Files Lawsuit Against North Carolina

by: Ethan A. Huff (NaturalNews) A North Carolina man who was told by the state-run North Carolina Board of Dietetics/Nutrition (NCBDN) to stop giving online dietary advice to diabetics via his personal blog has filed a federal lawsuit against the group for violating his free speech rights. As we reported previously, Steven Cooksey, a former diabetic, abandoned conventional wisdom concerning diabetes after watching it fail him and land him in the hospital, and instead chose to take an alternative route. This included adopting a so-called "Paleolithic" diet that is high in fats, low in carbohydrates, devoid of grains, and completely contrary to the establishment medical system's views about what diabetics should eat. After experiencing incredible success with this new Paleolithic… Read More →

The FDA Is Pressing Ahead – Act Now – Fight Back

As was recently reported by another health-freedom group, the FDA has once again become very active and has sent “warning letters,” breaking its promise not to enforce the draft Guidance on New Dietary Ingredients (NDIs).  Actually, the FDA had previously said it was cracking down on such supplements, so this was not a surprise. The FDA has already issued warning letters of this sort. So, this is not new “News.”  If Daniel Fabricant can be believed, this FDA action has no direct relation with the raft Guidance on NDIs (as he discussed just this in a webinar with industry some months ago). These are warning letters and not withdrawal-from-the-market-enforcement letters.  There is a difference, although it does not mean that… Read More →

FBI Wants A Wire-Tap-Friendly ‘Back Door’ To All Internet Providers

by: J. D. Heyes (NaturalNews) In this Information Age, the government threats to privacy just continue to cascade, as now the FBI wants Internet companies to install "back doors" into their services to allow electronic eavesdropping of users. Specifically, the FBI wants the 1994 Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act, or CALEA, amended to require Internet platforms such as Facebook, as well as Web-based email programs like Gmail and Yahoo! to build back doors into their systems, so the FBI can access them at will to spy. Presumably other constitutional requirements of eavesdropping – such as the Fourth Amendment's requirement for law enforcement to secure a warrant "upon probable cause" – would apply, but these days, you just never know….

EPA Official “Crucified” By His Own Words

by Attorney Jonathan Emord The ethos in most enforcement divisions of federal regulatory agencies is one of hostility towards those private businesses politically targeted for investigation. It is not enough to identify rule violations and invite compliance, agency enforcers relish in conducting clandestine investigations followed by unannounced inspections that lead to onerous and intrusive administrative subpoenas and ultimately to dramatic administrative or judicial complaints and demands for destruction of product lines or advertising and exorbitant fines vastly in excess of actual injury. For the hapless businessman who is the subject of regulatory attack, agency requirements and demands are bewildering and devastating. Most agencies have so many regulations that no single regulator is a master of even one-tenth of them and… Read More →

North Carolina Board Violated US Constitution In Threatening Nutrition Blogger

by: Ethan A. Huff (NaturalNews) The power-tripping medical establishment in North Carolina has threatened to sue the owner of an online diabetes blog based in the Tar Heel State if he refuses to capitulate to their tyrannous, unconstitutional demands. The North Carolina Board of Dietetics / Nutrition (NCBDN) says Steve Cooksey is violating state law by freely sharing dietary and nutrition information on his blog, simply because he is not a licensed dietitian. Instead of confirming the lies and misinformation of the state-sanctioned nutrition guidelines for diabetes, which frown on things like saturated fats and encourage consumption of grain-based carbohydrates, Cooksey spoke up about the importance of consuming saturated fats as part of a healthy diet, and warned about how… Read More →

CISPA Passes House; Epic Privacy Battle Moves To Senate

by: J. D. Heyes (NaturalNews) If you're not familiar with "Washingtonspeak" – that odd, unique variance of the English language in which words don't really mean what they are supposed to mean – you might not know that the lawmakers who wrote the new Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) aren't really too concerned about the protection aspect of the legislation, at least as it applies to the general public's concern about privacy. Yes, the word "protection" is in the title, but a closer examination of the language of the bill, as well as its intent, by those who know how things works on Capitol Hill, find that the only "protection" the bill offers is that afforded the federal… Read More →

Another Way To Kill US Farmers…

by Rady Ananda Monsanto’s Food and Drug Administration can’t close down small dairies and private food clubs fast enough, bursting on the scene with guns drawn as if the criminalized right to contract for natural foods we’ve consumed for millennia deserves SWAT attention. Now, Obama has the Dept. of Justice going after small farmers under the post-911 "Bank Secrecy Act" which makes it a crime to deposit less than $10,000 when you earned more than that. "The level we deposited was what it was and it was about the same every week," Randy Sowers told Frederick News. The Sowers own and run South Mountain Creamery in Middletown, Maryland. Admittedly, when the Sowers earned over $10,000 in February, and learned they’d… Read More →
