HIDDEN IN PLAIN VIEW: FDA MURDER
by Jon Rappoport
May 16, 2012
The day of the Smoking Gun has arrived.
The discovery of a page, on the FDA’s own website, proves the FDA is fully aware that:
the drugs it certifies as safe have been killing Americans, at the rate of 100,000 per year.
The FDA website page is currently
available under the heading, “Why Learn About Adverse Drug Reactions,”
and it can be Googled. (Click here to go directly to the FDA page.)
The implications of this Smoking Gun are hard to grasp in any rational way.
The FDA takes no blame, no responsibility for its actions, and yet it admits the death statistics are accurate.
As an investigative reporter, I have been tracking and writing about pharmaceutically-caused deaths for 10 years. I
have, on numerous occasions, cited Dr. Barbara Starfield’s report in
the July 26th, 2000, Journal of the American Medical Association,
in which she presents the figure of 106,000 deaths per year, in
America, as a result of these drugs. I have claimed that the federal
government and, in particular, the FDA, are aware of these numbers.
And now the page on the FDA’s own website confirms the death toll. Yet, nowhere do we see the FDA taking one shred of responsibility for this ongoing holocaust.
Holocaust? Add up the figures. Medical
drugs cause 100,000 deaths in America every year: that means a million
Americans are killed every decade.
Understand this very clearly. No
medical drug in America can be released for public use until and unless
the FDA states it is safe. The FDA is the agency responsible for every
such decision on every drug. The buck stops there.
Yes, the FDA has a “special
relationship” with the pharmaceutical industry. Yes, the FDA utilizes
doctors on their drug-approval panels that have ties to the
pharmaceutical industry. But, in the end, it is the FDA official seal
that opens the gate and permits a drug to be prescribed by doctors and
sold in the US.
In all my research on this
medical-drug holocaust, I have never found a case in which any FDA
employee was censured, fired, or criminally prosecuted for the killing
effects of these drugs.
That is a track record Organized Crime would be proud of, and the comparison is not frivolous.
On this FDA website page that has just
come to light, the FDA also readily admits that deaths from medical
drugs are the fourth leading cause of death in America, ahead of
pulmonary disease, diabetes, AIDS, pneumonia, accidents, and automobile
The FDA website page also states there
are 2 million serious adverse reactions (ADRs) from the ingestion of
medical drugs, annually, in the US. When the FDA says “serious,” they
aren’t talking about headaches or slight dizziness or temporary nausea.
“Serious” means stroke, heart attack, neurological damage; destruction
of that magnitude. Therefore, per decade, that adds up to 20 million
ADRs. 20 million.
Examining these figures for death and
debilitation, can you find any comparable crime in the American
landscape? And yet the major media have been silent. This is the kind of
story that could make Watergate look like a Sunday-school picnic. If a
paper like the New York Times let loose their hounds in a relentless
exploration of the horror, I can assure you that, in time, doctors and
medical bureaucrats and even drug-company employees would come out of
the woodwork with confessions, and the resultant explosions and outcries
would shake the medical/pharmaceutical foundations of America and the
But these major media outlets are an
intrinsic part of the Matrix that protects and sustains the crimes and
the criminals. It isn’t just drug-advertising profits that keep the
leading newspapers and television networks silent. It’s collusion to
protect “a revered institution”—the medical system.
Also at stake is Obamacare.
The connection is vivid and unmistakable. If the new national health
insurance plan goes into effect, millions more Americans, previously
uninsured, will be drawn into the system and subjected to the very drugs
are killing and maiming people at such a horrific rate.
Where has the US Department of Justice
been all these years? Is there any way, under the sun, that a million
deaths per decade can be excused? Is there any way the FDA and the drug
companies can float safely in the upper atmosphere of privilege, while
the concept of justice has any meaning? Where are criminal prosecutions?
The revelations of ongoing knowledge
to be found at the FDA website page stagger the mind. Here is yet
another implication: what about all the studies on drugs that are
published in prestigious medical journals, month after month? These
studies unequivocally claim the drugs are safe. What level of fraud must
exist for such peer-reviewed studies to attain the false status of
Perhaps this quote from Marcia Angell,
former editor of the New England Journal of Medicine, will clarify that
aspect of the scandal:
“It is simply no longer possible to
believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on
the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I
take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and
reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal
(Marcia Angell, MD, The New York Review of Books, January 15, 2009)
Be forewarned. If this story of
FDA-caused deaths finally, now, breaks through into the public
consciousness in a major way, the official team for the defense will try
to obfuscate the naked facts:
“A low-level FDA employee mistakenly
posted those numbers, which are false.” “People die because the drugs
are incorrectly combined, because patients don’t follow prescribing
instructions, because sometimes doctors prescribe a drug for off-label
uses, but the drugs themselves are safe.” “The FDA has a remarkable
track record of safety.” And so forth and so on. None of these defenses
are dealing with the truth head-on. They are all attempts to deflect and
Meanwhile, the FDA pursues an agenda
of attacking nutritional supplements, and the latest federal regulations
classify these supplements as “potentially dangerous”—despite the fact
that supplements have a record of safety that is astonishing.
It is time for these murderous
government crimes to end. It is time for all responsible parties to be
brought to justice, to real justice. It is time for the public to
realize that 100,000 people dying every year in the US, because they
take medical drugs, is the equivalent of 33 airliner crashes into the
Twin Towers, every year, year after year.
But in this case, it is only necessary
for Department of Justice officials to climb into cars and drive down
the road to the headquarters of the FDA and start making arrests, on a
charge of negligent homicide. At minimum.
