Why The FDA Should Be Charged With Murder

By Jon Rappoport  May 16, 2014

FDAkillsIf you worked for a federal agency that was killing people at the rate of 100,000 a year, every year, like clockwork, and if you knew it, wouldn’t you feel compelled to say or do something about it?

At the FDA, which is, in fact, killing Americans at that rate, no one has ever felt the need to step forward and speak up.

Let’s shift the venue and ask the same question. If you were a medical reporter for a major media outlet in the US, and you knew the above fact, wouldn’t you make it a priority to say something, write something, do something?

I’m talking about people like Sanjay Gupta (CNN, CBS), Gina Kolata (NY Times), Tim Johnson (ABC News), and Thomas Maugh II (LA Times).

And with that, let’s go to the smoking guns. The citation is: BMJ June 7, 2012 (BMJ 2012:344:e3989). Author, Jeanne Lenzer.

Lenzer refers to a report by the Institute for Safe Medication Practices: “It calculated that in 2011 prescription drugs were associated with two to four million people in the US experiencing ‘serious, disabling, or fatal injuries, including 128,000 deaths.’”

The report called this “one of the most significant perils to humans resulting from human activity.”

And here is the final dagger. The report was compiled by outside researchers who went into the FDA’s own database of “serious adverse [medical-drug] events.”

Therefore, to say the FDA isn’t aware of this finding would be absurd. The FDA knows. The FDA knows and it isn’t saying anything about it, because the FDA certifies, as safe and effective, all the medical drugs that are routinely maiming and killing Americans.

Previously, I have documented that the FDA knows; because the FDA has a page on its own website that admits 100,000 people are killed every year by medical drugs, and two million more people are severely injured by the drugs. (Search engine “FDA Why Learn About Adverse Drug Reactions” or click here to be taken directly to the FDA page in question).

And for the past five years or so, I have been writing about and citing a published report by the late Dr. Barbara Starfield that indicates 106,000 people in the US are killed by medical drugs every year. Until her death in 2011, Dr. Starfield worked at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health. Her report, “Is US health really the best in the world?”, was published in the Journal of American Medical Association on July 26, 2000.

Since the Department of Homeland Security is working its way into every nook and corner of American life, hyper-extending its mandate to protect all of us from everything, why shouldn’t I go along with Janet Napolitano’s advice: see something, say something.

This is what I see and this is what I’m saying. Maybe DHS would like to investigate the FDA as a terrorist organization.

How many smoking guns do we need before a sitting president shuts down the FDA buildings, fumigates the place, and prosecutes very large numbers of FDA employees?

Do we need 100,000 smoking guns every year? Do we need relatives of the people who’ve all died in the span of merely a year, from the poisonous effects of FDA-approved medical drugs, to bring their corpses to the doors of FDA headquarters?

And let me ask another question. If instead of drugs like warfarin, dabigatran, levofloxacin, carboplatin, and lisinopril (the five leading killers in the FDA database), the 100,000 deaths per year were led by gingko, ginseng, vitamin D, niacin, and raw milk, what do you think would happen?

I’ll tell you what would happen. SEALS, Delta Force, SWAT teams, snipers, predator drones, tanks, and infantry would be attacking every health-food store in America. The resulting fatalities would be written off as necessary collateral damage in the fight to keep America safe and healthy.

All those phony stories in the press, reported dutifully by so-called medical reporters? The stories about maybe-could-be-possible-miracle breakthroughs just over the horizon of state-of-the-art medical research? Those stories are there to obscure the very, very hard facts of medically-caused death on the ground.

The buck stops at the FDA.

Except in the real world, it doesn’t. Which tells you something about the so-called real world and how much of it is composed of propaganda.

Here is the situation. No medical drug in the US can be released for public use unless and until the FDA says it is safe and effective. That’s the rule. The FDA is spitting out drug approvals month after month and year after year, and the drugs are routinely killing 100,000 people a year and maiming two million more, which adds up to a million deaths per decade and 20 million maimings per decade. The FDA and the federal government are doing nothing about it, even though they know what’s going on. This is mass murder. Not accidental death. Murder. A holocaust.

    The Thrive documentary (free online) explains that they do know and it part of the plan to reduce the population in various ways. Chemtrails, big pharma, big food, GMO’s, and silencing what works- energy medicine, homeopathy, herbal medicine, etc.

  2. Davey H says:

    In paragraph #2, a serious omission is made. In asserting that “NO ONE HAS EVER FELT THE NEED TO STEP FORWARD AND SPEAK UP”, perhaps the most significant whistleblower of our time, Dr. David Graham, seems to have been forgotten.
    In his congressional testimony following the VIOXX scandal, his eloquent and articulate assessment of FDA incompetence forged in the crucible of his own insider’s understanding of the agency’s machinations, is captured in full and presented in Gary Null’s excellent “Prescription for Disaster” documentary.
    And oh, by the way – Prescription for Disaster’ came out in 2006. So don’t say no one ‘ever’ came forward!! A slice of Dr. Taylor’s testimony:
    “Vioxx is a terrible tragedy and a profound regulatory failure. I would argue that the FDA as currently configured is incapable of protecting America against another Vioxx. We are virtually defensiveless. It is important that this committee and the important people understand that what happened with Vioxx is really a symptom of something far more dangerous to the safety of the American people. Simply put, FDA and the Center of Drug Evaluation and Research are broken.”

    I am a European who lived most of her life in Europe and the rest here in USA. All along I am trying to figure out what is going on in the minds of “American”people. And I believe I got to a realization lately. It is sick. I mean the mind, the psychological make up, what peole believe here is flawed. What I understand is that people in America want freedom, an therefore want less government BUT at the same time they believe they need sound decision making, laws and rules that protect people. Well I am unhappy to report that those two things somehow do not go together. Big Pharma, big Military, big Stock Market, big consumerism take over. Why on earth would these lead to sound decisions? As the drug industry shows, it leads right into big experimentation with other people’s life, and with the sacredness of Mother Nature, etc. Questions need to be addressed such as how freedom and morality go together, or how making profit making the driving force of human activity is good for society. Go USA, I still trust people can figure it out here and turn the tide.

  4. Yeah spot on again with the FDA and its drug approval process. My faith in the government doing the right thing in the name of true science rather than parasitic co-dependency gets less and less every day. I know someone who was recently prescribed antibiotics by the nurse practitioner at the VA. He did some research online and the drug had reviews of people becoming unable to walk and having severe tendon damage, short term memory problems, and all kinds of nightmarish side effects.. The drug was prescribed for UTI which was most likely mis-diagnosed from persisting side-effects after stopping a hair loss drug known as finasteride. So basically prescribing one potentially handicapping drug to try to stop another potentially handicapping drug and unsoundly and unscientifically at that. The patient knew he didn’t have UTI and all these problems started right after taking finasteride, but the medical establshment is deaf and dumb to the facts. They just keep repeating what they heard and poo pooing all the people that come out with problems after taking these drugs. That is actually quite illogical and irrational, to refute people’s very real side effects from drugs with no basis whatsoever and automatically sticking to the usual response- “no, the drug must be safe, there’s no way it could have done that”. Try telling that to thousands upon thousands of people who know firsthand.

  5. Deborah Waroff says:

    Rapoport left out half the story — the people who can’t get drugs that would help them because the compound cannot cover huge costs and profits for the company bringing them to market. Thus, the coming shortage of effective antibiotics because companies prefer to concentrate on drugs for illnesses that people will have for the whole of their lives.
    Then there are drugs like Ampligen, which is helpful for some immune diseases. It can’t get approval because the man who owns the patent refused to hire an FDA veteran to help him do things the right way to conform to FDA preferences.

  6. Elizabeth says:

    My dr just the other day said she wanted me to go on cholesterol lowering drugs, but I’m not going to do so. I’ve researched it and I cannot go on another med that may cause side effects; she will be pissed off, but, I can’t do it and I won’t do it. She just looked at numbers and, as most do, prescribe some drug based on that.
