World famous psychiatrist says: more psychiatric drug treatment means more mass shootings will happen by Jon Rappoport
The continued move to aggressively regulate the plant kratom by both the US Food and Drug (FDA) Administration and the US Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) is telling. Rather than acting with integrity in the American people's best interest, both agencies are appearing more as the lowly henchmen of for-profit big business attempting to rid the market of competition.
The US is experiencing the height of a multi-year opioid epidemic that saw over 42,000 deaths in 2016 alone, more than all US soldiers killed in the entire twenty-year Vietnam war. The opioid epidemic was spawned by a mix of lax regulation, decades of revolving door government regulatory agencies with Big Pharma, and the limited/failed solutions by the mainstream US medical model. In such an environment, the healing offered by non-patentable plant-based solutions are continually preferred in the court of public opinion.
Kratom is often used in place of addictive and dangerous pharmaceutical opioids. Perhaps more importantly, kratom binds to opioid receptors in the brain without the deadly respiratory-suppressing effects of pharmaceutical or illegal opioids. The FDA's new rush to reschedule kratom comes from a PHASE computational mode done by the agency. The FDA interpreted the data, and therefore the aggressive move to regulate the plant, by deciding that because it binds to opioid receptors in the brain, it is therefore a dangerous opioid. Kratom behaves as a partial mu-opioid receptor agonist and is used for pain management, energy, even depression and anxiety. The plant contains no opiates, but it does bind to the same receptor sites in the brain as chocolate, coffee, exercise and even human breast milk.
According to the comprehensive Henningfield analysis, kratom’s potential for abuse and dependence is no greater than such widely used and unscheduled substances as “nutmeg, hops, St. John’s Wort, chamomile, guarana, and kola nut.

Tamiflu's Hidden Dark side: Ineffective and dangerous says scores of scientific studies and evidence
Request to CDC/HHS to Stop Publishing Misleading Flu Statistics "I am a pediatrician and this propaganda affects my practice directly."
Kenneth P. Stoller MD, FACHM has filed a request to the U.S. Department of Health and Human services requesting the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention correct their statistics for counting influenza deaths.
Following in the footsteps of Slate.com's recent investigation on Merck's fraudulent HPV vaccine safety trials, USA Today has also stepped up their reporting outside their normal comfort zone. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have quickly made a name for themselves as America's least trusted regulatory agency. USA Today is reporting that congressional watchdogs are concerned about CDC's secrecy surrounding dangerous lab accidents, loss of deadly influenza specimens, potential exposures to viruses and bacterias and other highly concerning occurrences within the shrouded agency.
USA Today reports:
"...after taking nearly two years to release the reports about incidents that occurred from 2013 to 2015, the CDC blacked out large swaths of information when accidents involved particularly dangerous pathogens, such as anthrax, Ebola and certain deadly strains of influenza."
USA Today's Freedom of Information request to the CDC was answered by the agency with 503 pages of mostly redacted documents. The CDC's poor response immediately triggered a letter by leaders of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce and Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigation to hand over the full, unreacted 503 pages of documents the CDC provided to USA Today. The congressional letter is also requesting the CDC produce "...all instances of lab safety incidents at the CDC since January 1, 2012."
Below is page two of the congressional letter sent to the CDC.
Official CDC Document Shows "Recipe" to Create a Media Fear Campaign to "Foster High Vaccine Demand"
The following presentation was given by former Director of Media Relations and Associate Director for Communications at the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Glen Nowak, Ph.D in 2004. Nowak describes the CDC's "recipe" for fostering public interest and high vaccine demand by outlining how to use media outlets, medical experts, and health authorities to essentially whip up a coordinated fear campaign.
The CDC presentation directs health authorities to "predict dire outcomes" and "Framing the flu season in terms to motivate behavior," such as "very severe," "deadly," and "most severe than past years."
The presentation also suggests having nonstop propaganda from health officials and media to scare people into "...the perception that many people are susceptible to a bad case of influenza." The CDC presentation also instructs to reference and discuss "pandemic influenza" and to show in the media "pictures of children, families of those affected."
Many corporate media outlets, both local and national, are running almost daily flu stories/reports that directly follow the above CDC-directed fear campaign marching orders. None of the reporting exposes the fact that flu shots are officially the most dangerous shots for a person to receive according to the official US government numbers for court payouts for severe adverse reactions and deaths. Regarding the flu season reporting, official testing for flu strains in patients is sporadic and unreliable at best. The CDC only counts what are called influenza-like-illnesses (ILI) when reporting flu numbers that the media is using to construct its current fear campaign. ILI's are often not caused by the flu virus.
Here is a list from the University of Maryland Medical Center of other things that cause ILI's that are currently being counted as 'the flu' in official reporting at the CDC.
