Well, Shut My Mouth...

The Autism Community is VERY, VERY Awake, and On the Move....

December 18th, 2014 - What I have to tell you, below, about the sea-change in the Autism Leadership world is way more than startling.  For awhile I have been seeing measured changes happening - an awakening, and an encouragement, of organization primarily centered around Autism One, the biggest annual event of what I call the REAL Autism movement. 

But what just happened came out of nowhere, so to speak, and represents a take-over of the autism dialogue, and, as I see it coming, the beginnings of a winning strategy team that works together.  What was just accomplished was astounding.  A reorganization, and a victory, of monumental proportions.  Let me tell you about it.  For sure read the paragraph below about WHY they did what they did more than once.  MORE

ACAM Assumes Health Care Reform Leadership Role...

The American College for Advancement in Medicine (ACAM) -  To Train its Members on How To Get Health Insurance Reimbursement Under the NEW Health Care Reform Laws, and more...

November 10th, 2014 - ACAM will make its announcement this weekend at its annual meeting in Las Vegas, and will provide more information.

In the US, the term "Health Care Reform" can start an argument anywhere you look, and listen, with good reason.  Democrats and Republicans, these days, are at each other's throats over the issue.  The recent mid-term national elections had many winning Republicans chanting "Repeal ObamaCare..." to their prospective voters.  And, the voters listened.  To hear all of the rhetoric you'd think that the idea of Health Care Reform is dead.  But, it is not - in fact, the opposite.  Both Republicans and Democrats see the need for reform - they just disagree on many of the ways to reform it.

It takes some work to get by the political rhetoric spewed out by both camps, and get down to the essence of the disagreement.  But, it is not impossible.  Frankly, the differences are NOT that great, considering the extent, and complexity, of the overall, health care reform task.  What is very interesting to what is called "alternative medicine" providers is that BOTH camps want AltMed paid for by insurance.  More, health Insurance companies are desperately trying to find popular AltMed providers for their networks, but they can't find them.

Yes, you read that right.  That was NOT a typo.  Can't find them?  That's right.  AltMed providers are INVISIBLE to the health insurance system.

Invisible to the insurance system?  Yup.  There may be a building sitting on a Main Street in Anytown, USA, full of cutting-edge practitioners, and health insurance executives, and their families, make use of them, but when those Health insurance people get back to the office, and turn on the health insurance computer system, they are NOT going to find those practitioners, and that whole cutting-edge practice in the files...  Why is that?

A lot of reasons come to mind, answering the question "why is that? MORE

Ebola Toolkit...

What do we need in our US homes to defeat Ebola?  Why?  Because  it looks like we are going to have to fight this one ourselves, with no help, and, in fact, hindrance, from our own US health care system...

October 21st, 2014 - I was reading stories on the Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF)  website early this morning, about what is happening in Liberia and Sierra Leone, in the US CDC directed supposed "Stop the Ebola" project. 

It was there that I found that virtually NOTHING is being done for patients to try to stop the Ebola within individual patients.  All they are doing is isolating patients behind what looks like construction fencing (see photo), where they can be watched dying.  With that, we can assume that an Ebola outbreak in the US would be treated exactly the same way.  MORE

Health Freedom Congress Flies...

Doldrums Disappear at 2014 Event...

October 2nd, 2014 - The problem with the Health Freedom Movement in the US, sometimes, is that it has grown too big.  It is too successful, and somewhat bored. 

With, literally, Millions of Health Freedom Fighters operating; handling political, government, health care, practitioner, and product issues, sometimes it just becomes something that is just there, like a mountain range by the sea. 

So, let's talk about the Health Freedom Congress of 2014,  held at Hamline University in Minneapolis, Minnesota on September 26th and 27th, with a "Meet and Greet" held on the 25th at the Hilton Airport Hotel. There were NO doldrums here - for more than one reason.  There was even drama.

The 2012 Congress, a gathering of the leadership, was, to tell the truth, mind-numbing for the attendees.  There were forty (40) "A" listers (Voting Members) and one hundred twenty (120) Delegates, plus observers.  It was unwieldy.  I, personally, was bored out of my skull...

So, I didn't go in 2013 - and neither did most of the "A" list.

But this year I got a call from my friend Peter McCarthy from Texas, who said to me, "Let's go there. We need to get this back on track."  Peter, and Radhia Gleis, together, head the 55.000 member Texas Health Freedom Coalition.  If memory serves me right these two brought twenty-eight (28) somewhat disparate groups together into one fighting unit supporting each other's interests and concerns - instead of fighting amongst themselves.  (are you reading this "Autism Leaders?")  Fifteen minutes in the bar with Peter McCarthy, retired Air Force War College graduate, will give you a sense of why all those groups decided to work WITH Peter and Radhia instead of the opposite.  Then Radhia starts to talk and it dawns on you why what could have been a disparate set of groups stays together.  Each of them is a power unto themselves.  Together, should make their enemies cringe long before they engage.  And engage they do.  They are not a DEFENSE.  Like me, Tm Bolen, they are OFFENSE.

Oh My, Oh My!!!!

The CDC Whistleblower Story Just Keeps Getting Better...

August 30th, 2014 - Last Friday, August 29th, 2014 I attended, and spoke at, the combined AutismOne/Thriiive conference in conjunction with the 42nd Annual Cancer Control Society - See more at: held at the Universal Sheraton Hotel in Universal City, California.  Brian Hooker PhD spoke just before me.  Dana Gorman right after.

There were SIX important NEW REVELATIONS: two newly released pieces of evidence, and four startling Conclusions, that came out of Brian Hooker's speech.

Many of you have probably already heard that CDC whistleblower Dr. William Thompson has written a letter, and posted it on his lawyer's website, verifying Brian Hooker's complaints.  The Big Pharma "spin" machine is operating at full power - but their efforts to contain the whole story are laughable.  The story is growing, appropriately, as it should, for there is no denying that the CDC got caught with their pants down, and, consequently, their credibility is gone.  Fini.  The whistleblower, in his letter, verified everything Hooker said happened.  Read William Thompson's letter here

But now - the new revelations... MORE

Yup. It's Happening...

The Autism Community Is Re-Forming - and the Prognosis Looks Good....

August 20th, 2014 - This is the 14th article in a series focusing on the fact that Autism is a social issue that could have been, and should have been, solved a long time ago. 

As you already know, I don't leave "Autism Leaders" alone.  If they want to call themselves leaders than they need to lead.  They need to have a plan (one they can SHOW the world), and they actually need to be moving in a problem solving direction.

After my last newsletter on this subject I got invited to some, sort of, secret meetings - a group putting together a real plan.  And, out of these meetings came results.

What were those meetings?  They were an Autism Think Tank, made up, primarily, of top grade, well known in their field, health professionals and real Autism Leaders..  They have met, so far, thirteen times.  Their focus is on answering the Autism question "How do we fix the children and the parents?"    Their goal has been to devise, and to put into clear language, the process by which parents of autistic children can unravel the damage done to their children and reverse it - and make that information easily, and readily, available to parents.  They weren't there to argue the politics of it - they just want to fix the problem - child by child, and parent by parent

I sat there though two of those Think Tank sessions, listening, carefully, to what they had to say.  And I was impressed.  And I am not easily impressed - especially by so-called "Autism Leadership." MORE

Doctor's Data Files For Summary Judgment Against Barrett...

"The Defense" Has "No Defense" Says Attorneys.

March 2nd, 2014 - Federal cases take forever to wend their way through the court system.

This case, the Doctor's Data v Stephen Barrett, Quackwatch, and NCAHF was filed June 18th, 2010, and it still isn't finished.

But the circumstances surrounding the case never cease to provide amusement for the North American Health Freedom Movement.  It is VERY satisfying watching Stephen Barrett and his band of worthless toadies suffering one indignity after another in the case, as the Court slowly, inevitably, jams Barrett's idea of who and what controls US health care up their combined rectal cavities - publicly.

Every machination by Barrett, and company, provided inside and outside the case has met with not only failure, but disaster.  It's like Barrett, and his cronies have been staked down in the parking lot of the Federal courthouse in Chicago, Illinois watching the steam roller coming down their aisle way.  Behind the steam roller are the street sweepers prepared to sweep and vacuum up the remains and deposit them on Chicago's trash heap where they belong.

Doctor's Data filed a Motion for Summary Judgment.

What's a "Motion for Summary Judgment?"

In short, a Motion for Summary Judgment is a legal move made shortly after the close of the official discovery period basically saying that the opposition has no case to proceed with and it would be a waste of everyone's time to continue, so, your honor, would you just rule in our favor and we'll get on with the what's left - like seizing the money awarded as damages, please.  MORE

He Whose Name May Not Be Spoken...

October 9th, 2013 - One unexpected benefit of the Doctor's Data v Barrett Federal Court case is the cornering, so to speak, of the "skeptic" rodent base.  They have been totally silent about the situation - and for good reason.  Fear.

And their blatant fear is justified.  For, Doctor's Data's legal team has kept the federal judge in the case, John J. Tharp, Jr, apprised of Barrett's support network, including "skeptic" internet defamation tactics, using a simple court device - a Motion for a Protective Order.  The Judge hasn't even had to issue one yet - just consider it.

The "skeptics" have panicked.  Like mice cornered by a cat, you can hear them SQUEAK two rooms away.  One Example:

Doctor's Data Asks Court for "Protective Order"...  They want to keep their "Expert Witnesses" Alive and Well... 8/7/13

The best example of this is to observe the activities of the Australian Skeptics, and in particular one Australian Skeptic named Peter Bowditch.  Bowditch, sort of a lower lever hangar-on, is one of the older set - one of those, I think, that recruit the younger "angry homosexual" skeptic members, and act as their "protector," so to speak, as they go through the training.  Bowditch brags that he was VERY involved in the "rape, mutilation and death threats against Meryl Dorey," situation but escaped an AVO (Restraining Order) when he couldn't be directly connected to the threats of violence.

But Bowditch is uncontrollably angry these days over several things that happened in the Doctor's Data v Barrett Federal Court case.  He got his wings clipped, so to speak, completely and thoroughly.  So did all of the "skeptics."  MORE

Treachery...

A "Way of Life" in the Autism Community...

September 10th, 2013 - This is the 12th article in a series focusing on the fact that Autism is a social issue that could have been, and should have been, solved a long time ago. 

I'd heard about " the backstabbing" among Autism Leaders.   I'd even seen a few examples, and I wrote about them, creating, with Jake Crosby, a huge argument in the Autism world. 

But, I was actually under the impression that that activity was restricted to just a few people in a few self-centered groups. 

Boy, was I wrong...

I'd heard the stories about autism alliances shattering - groups that formerly worked together, at the end of a project, literally hating each other, doing whatever they could to damage each other, even blocking what the others were trying to accomplish.  Those stories got higher attention from me.  I kind of wrinkled my brow - asking the question "Whoa!  Do they REALLY do that to each other?"

Yes, they really do.  And they do it without even considering the consequences.

The "backstabbing" stories explain certain things  - like why Autism Leadership can't even come close to Situational Analysis; starting with "Identifying Problems," and wouldn't have the faintest idea how to go to the next step - "Identifying Possible Solutions."   Why?  You can't get them into the same room for a discussion because they are all carrying knives, so to speak, to get even over the last time they were together.  It's that bad.

Stupid me - I live in the Health Freedom world where, although there are difference of opinion, we have meetings to get things done.  I mean why not?  So, I said to my self "There's got to be a way to get these people to get together, sit down, and make a plan."

Boy, was I wrong...

It is simply unbelievable...

The situation gets worse, not better.  In an earlier article I'd said:

In my "Calling For Batman..." article, I pointed out  a pattern of poor tactics, and lack of a general strategic plan, by Autism Leadership.  I mentioned a "Summit Meeting" between Autism Leadership and key members of the Health Freedom Community.  I said:

"I offered to bring to that meeting at least ten significant, influential, members of the Health Freedom Movement to assist in the research and preparation of that Plan.  I offered to coordinate the situation analysis heading toward that Plan using a Crisis Management situation analysis."

I have been in contact with a good many of those "significant, influential, members of the Health Freedom Movement"  I offered to bring, and the consensus is "Yeah, let's do this..."

But, on the opposite side of the table, the Autism Leadership, there is only emptiness.  I haven't heard a word.  In fact - the opposite.  There is actually a group that wants to prevent a "Summit Meeting," claiming that THEY have all the answers, and they have no intention of even being in the same room with any others, neither in the Health Freedom world, and certainly not the Autism world.

I kid you not...

Let's talk about the people that did that just below.   MORE

You Can Smell Barrett's Fear...

Why?  Doctor's Data's "Expert Witnesses" Are REAL...

August 15th, 2013 - The unfolding Doctor's Data v Barrett Federal Court case is, for many, just one continuous bag of exciting good news.  Kind of like when we were kids and we went trick-or-treating on Halloween night - when we got home and reached in the bag to take out all of those different things - everything at hand was a delight.

However, Stephen Barrett, and the Board Members of both The National Council Against Health Fraud (NCAHF),  and Quackwatch Inc, right about now, are probably checking out what life might be like living in South America.  For judgment day is coming.

And, unless Barrett, et al, can mange to empanel a jury of twelve "skeptics" fresh from a "popper" party, judgment, I predict, from a jury of normal people, is going to be harsh.

Harsh - as in millions, and millions, and tens of millions of dollars.

Why do I say that?

Because push has come to shove.  Reality has set in.  Barrett's fabrications and obfuscations have been called to task.  Innuendo is looking down the gun barrel from the receiving end. 

Doctor's Data's expert witnesses are REAL.

What does that mean? MORE

Calling For Batman...

Autism Leadership's Desperation Tactics - No Analysis, No Planning (so far)...

July 14th, 2013 - We, in the Health Freedom Movement are comfortable.  We just take it for granted that those around us, in the Movement, are honest, kind, competent, caring, helpful, full of integrity, and know how to solve problems in an organized manner - because we see each other operating in situations constantly.  Our friends are a phone call away, and when we run into someone we haven't seen for a while, in a hallway, say, at a Health Freedom Expo, it's time for a hug or a warm handshake, right now, before we rush off to the next meeting.  And, those hugs and warm handshakes are real.

So, I really can't be blamed if I expected something reasonably similar when I walked into the Autism world.  Boy, was I wrong.  There's a resonance there that just isn't right - a tension.  A stress in the air that generates discomfort - like having to temporarily work in an office that has fluorescent lights, and three or four of the ballasts are buzzing so loud you can't carry on a conversation with another, or on the telephone.  Tension rises. And rises. And rises.  Until those in the room become glassy-eyed.

Nobody is going to get anything done in that room.

That's Autism.

This is the eighth article in a series focusing on the fact that Autism is a social issue that could have been, and should have been, solved a long time ago. 

And, as many of you have figured out, I'm making the case that Autism is an issue that we, in the Health Freedom Movement, need to take over and solve.  Many of you are already offering to participate.

So, for the moment, let's continue analyzing Autism Leadership, for, without doubt, their situation represents the best case study of how NOT to conduct a campaign. MORE

The Autism Community Simply Cannot Help Itself...

The Reasons Are Legion...

June 18th, 2013 - This is the fourth article in a series focusing on the fact that Autism is a social issue that could have been, and should have been, solved a long time ago.  Like the first three, it focuses on the mechanism, or in this case, the lack of mechanism.

There are simple ways to organize problems for solution.  Everybody uses them.  Businesses can't survive without them.  Even government agencies use them.  Advocate organizations employ them.  Yet, for a myriad of reasons, the Autism Community cannot sit down and organize a campaign to solve their problems.

They cannot sit there and make a list of their problems, then discuss possible solutions.  They cannot take those possible solutions and make plans.  Consequently, they cannot execute any plans.  And, finally, they cannot review the situation because they didn't even start any process.

Instead, as the AutismOne meeting in Chicago a few weeks ago shows us, they get together, pose, position, preen, and posture, for what few parents of Autistic children show up for the event - and VERY FEW are showing up these days.  The attendance is dismal - less than fifteen hundred people including the posers, preeners and posturers.

Then, to close the event, in front of those same Autism parents, they get falling down drunk at a Karaoke night, leaving, as you might expect, a solid impression with those parents of what the Autism Community leadership REALLY has to offer.

Nothing. 

For, although there were appearances at AutismOne by Congressman, former Congressman, Bobbie Kennedy Jr, etc., NOTHING of any value occurred.

Nothing.

Now I'll tell you what really happened there, and you won't like what I have to say.  For it isn't the government, the vaccine industry, Brian Deer, stupid media, the NVIC program, or the skeptics, that are responsible for Autism anymore.  It is the Autism Community itself, as a group, that WILL NOT ORGANIZE.  Will not analyze.  Will not look at possibilities.  Will not plan,  Will not do any constructive project. 

For it is not about WHAT.  It is only about WHO.  Autism leadership, right now,  is ONLY about WHO gets to go to a meeting with a government agency.  WHO gets to introduce a Congressman at a panel. WHO gets to write articles for Age of Autism (AoA). 

And that's not working.  And I am very suspicious...  MORE

Why Autism is Going to Be Here Much, Much Longer...

Unless Major Changes Happen...

March 3rd, 2013 - This is the third article in a series focusing on the fact that Autism is a social issue that could have been, and should have been, solved a long time ago. 

The first two articles you can access in the table to the right.  This is an article I did NOT want to have to write for I simply do NOT like to have to openly question, or criticize, those that, for want of a better phrase, are on our side.  Or, at least, APPEAR to be on our side.

But serious questions have been raised - and those accused have not answered those questions satisfactorily - if at all.  Because of this situation there is a huge rift in the Autism community and it is my recommendation to the North American Health Freedom Movement that we keep a hands off approach, offering NO help, or assistance, to them, until the Autism community solves its internal dissent situation.  Why?  To assist, at this point, would only help to perpetuate a VERY bad internal situation. 

For about three years now I've been immersed in Autism politics, writing about it, primarily focusing on opposition strategies and tactics using the Mark and David Geier case series, Brian Hooker PhD's investigation of the CDC series, the assault on Thimerosal in vaccines at the United Nations program to remove mercury from the environment series, and the series on the Doctor's Data versus Stephen Barrett federal court case.  I painted a picture, for my readers, of the opposition for all to see.

But, in my examination of the big Autism picture, something was very clear.  And, that was that despite a very well-organized defense of vaccines, by what I call the "Vaccine Construction", which we all know are the primary cause of not only Autism, but all the rest of the problems described in the "one-in-six US children have a neurological disorder" statement, there was no REAL, organized, counter-attack by "our side" to combat the machinations of the vaccine construction.  None.

At first, trusting in the basic goodness of mankind, I assumed that, perhaps, there was just a lack of strategic and tactical, organizational ability in the Autism community.  I had heard stories alleging that certain Autism leader's idea of effective action was to dress up pretty and go to a meeting of a government agency and sit there quietly.  Kind of a situational naïveté.

But then two things happened almost simultaneously.  And there was a significant relationship between the two.   Enough to change my suspicions from "situational naïveté" to asking the question "Is this a Fifth Column operation?"

Below, I am going to let you read what I was presented with and let you, the reader, make your own decision about what is happening.

More, just while I was beginning to investigate the two things, and their relationship, a third thing happened, and, as a result, I got on an airplane and flew to Washington DC for a private meeting with a  philanthropic organization, and some others, about the Autism leadership problems.  In short, someone else, operating from an entirely different perspective - the funding of Autism activism, was raising similar questions to mine, demanding answers.  They weren't getting satisfactory answers either - so they pulled the funding, and sent me a copy of the stop-funding letter.  And, the letter looked like something that I, Tim Bolen, would have written.  It was scathing.  I couldn't have done better myself.

It was time to get on an airplane and go compare notes, so I did. MORE

"Vaccine Construction" Moaning, and Whimpering, Over UNEP Program to Ban Mercury in Medicine... 

The Battle to Get Mercury Out Of Planet Earth's Environment Continues...

January 17th,  2013 - The "Vaccine Construction,"  an unholy alliance of bought-off government employees in the US and the vaccine industry, is almost literally weeping and gnashing their teeth over what's happening at the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP 5).

Why?  Despite every effort - all the ones that usually work - the United Nations delegates to the mercury conference are dead-set on removing mercury (Thimerosal) from vaccines worldwide.  And the "Vaccine Construction" can't fathom that.  They are totally against it.  They screech their opposition from the rooftops.

So, you say "Why would they do that?"  The answer is obvious - once mercury is totally removed from vaccines, etc., health numbers will change rapidly.  No longer will one in six children have neurological defects.  Autism numbers will decrease to near zero.

That's why.  And everybody knows it.

And then the lawsuits, and the criminal indictments will begin.  The charade will be over.

Vaccine Industry In a Panic...

Over Pending UN Removal of Mercury in Vaccine Action...

December 17th,  2012 - Probably one of the most EXPENSIVE Public Relations campaigns in the history of Planet Earth began today when the worldwide vaccine industry makes its final desperate moves to try to stop the United Nations from banning, completely, in a binding treaty, the use of the deadly poison mercury as a preservative (Thimerosal) in vaccines  today injected into 96.2% of children worldwide.

If the UN actually does ban the use of Thimerosal, and it certainly should, then it appears that the vaccine industry will completely collapse.  There are those of us that think, quite correctly, that, that too, would be a VERY good thing.

The fifth session of the Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee to prepare a global legally binding instrument on mercury (INC5) will be held in Geneva, from 13 to 18 January 2013.  On the agenda is the removal of Thimerosal (49% mercury) from all medications worldwide - a move that any sane person would approve of.

But that removal is being challenged by the drug industry, an industry best understood by noting the attorneys advertising daily and nightly on television looking for victims of that same industry to represent in court.

More, one only needs to listen, with a shaking head, to drug advertising on television's final words about the drug indicating that your eyes will pop out, your body parts will quit working, you'll have a heart attack, your bones will dissolve, BUT, according to the visual depiction in the ad, you will be very sexually attractive while this is happening.

The screech "Experts say Thimerosal ban would imperil global health efforts" is, I think, just the first foray into the attempt to pressure UN delegates into dropping Thimerosal ban language at the final UN mercury conference.

The drug industry is at a disadvantage in this arena for none of its usual, customary, methods to influence decision makers get any traction with this group.  With the US congress, for instance, they merely send in the usual 4,000 leering lobbyists (I am not exaggerating) dripping threats, offers of contributions, etc. to make their point.  With doctors, especially pediatricians, they simply, through their cadre of long-legged bouncy-boob ex-cheerleaders, offer exotic trips, lunches for the staff, etc.

But, at the UN, the delegates were made aware at INC2, that when Thimerosal was banned in childhood vaccines in the US, Canada and selected European countries, those mercury-laced, filthy pus tubes were sent to THEIR countries, to be injected into THEIR children.  And now, of course, those countries have worse Autism, and other neurological disorders than the US, to deal with.  MORE

20 Year Anniversary for A4M...


November 11th, 2012 - The American Academy of Anti Aging Medicine (A4M) is celebrating its twenty year Anniversary.

Ron Klatz MD, DO and Bob Goldman Md, PhD, DO head up the 26,000 member American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M), the largest, and to my mind, most effective association of cutting-edge health care practitioners on Planet Earth.  Six thousand health professionals regularly attend their Las Vegas convention, this year held at the Venetian / Palazzo Resort December 12 to 15th, 2012. They also host another event every year in Orlando, Florida, this coming year at the Gaylord Palms Resort April 11th to 13th.  Then too, they hold mini-conferences all over the world - Mexico City, Dubai, Phoenix, etc. They have trained well over a hundred thousand health practitioners worldwide.

That's right - over one hundred thousand.

A4M maintains two separate websites:  www.A4m.com is about their conferences, etc., and http://www.worldhealth.net/ is about their Mission.

Years, and years ago, I had met Ron Klatz MD, casually, on several occasions, and Bob Goldman MD maybe once before the day I got a combined telephone call from them from the Chicago airport, where they were waiting for a flight to somewhere in the world.  They were calling me, chuckling, about my latest newsletter, appreciating my humor about those that attack cutting-edge health care providers.  And, to invite me to come to their next conference as their guest.

During the laughter generated in our first phone call a question arose, coming from Bob Goldman.  He said "Who, and why, in the world would anyone be AGAINST Anti-Aging?.   Our goal is to increase average lifespan to 120 years or greater."  I responded that I could think of several groups that would be their instant enemies - like the people who manage Retirement Funds, for instance.  They, after all, must provide an income return for all those people who invested in their Plan, and YOU, meaning A4M, were now telling them that they would be paying out for another sixty-five years.  Financially, they didn't plan for that.  And then, I said, there's the US Social Security Administration...

It got real quiet for a while.

There are, after all, those people who not only do NOT want people to live longer (except, perhaps for themselves), but want far fewer people to live at all on this planet.

So, there has always been a dilemma.

But since that first phone call there have been many, many more communications.   Ron Klatz and I attended the Cancer Control Society meeting last labor Day, in Universal City, California one day, and we took Nick Gonzalez MD out to dinner that night.  Nick, of course, is one of the cancer doctors featured in Suzanne Somers' book "Knockout."  Suzanne, in the photo at the right, of course, is a featured speaker, regularly, at A4M.

What, exactly, is anti-aging?

According to the A4M Mission Statement:

The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, Inc. ("A4M") is a not-for-profit medical society dedicated to the advancement of technology to detect, prevent, and treat aging related disease and to promote research into methods to retard and optimize the human aging process. A4M is also dedicated to educating physicians, scientists, and members of the public on anti-aging issues.

A4M believes that the disabilities associated with normal aging are caused by physiological dysfunction which in many cases are ameliorable to medical treatment, such that the human life span can be increased, and the quality of one's life improved as one grows chronologically older. A4M seeks to disseminate information concerning innovative science and research as well as treatment modalities designed to prolong the human life span.   MORE

The "Skeptics" Are An Organized "Hate Group"...

October 25th,  2012 - The rape, mutilation and death threats against Meryl Dorey, President of the Australian Vaccination Network. (AVN) make a very clear statement about the reality of the international "skeptic" organization.  The activities of Australian Skeptics, with their Stop the AVN subsidiary attacks, took the lid of off their formally secret plans. 

Tracing the "Die in a Fire” and “Just burn” phone calls back to top Australian skeptic leader, shoe salesman Daniel Rafaelle, the Stop the AVN head's home telephone, brought everything out into the open.  Remember, the Australian Skeptics, at their own "Amazing meeting" in 2010, gave Rafaelle their Top Award for his activities against Meryl Dorey and the AVN. 

Wikipedia says a "A hate group is an organized group or movement that advocates and practices hatred, hostility, or violence towards members of a race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation or other designated sector of society. "

The US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) says it best in an article in their "Law Enforcement Bulletin" titled "The Seven-Stage Hate Model."   In the article, first published in 2003, FBI Special Agents John R. Schafer MA, and Joe Navarro MA point out that among hate groups there is a seven stage process that all hate groups go through:  (1)  The Haters Gather,  (2)  The Hate Group Defines Itself, (3)  The Hate Group Disparages The Target, (4)   The Hate Group Taunts The Target, (5)  The Hate Group Attacks The Target Without Weapons,  (6)  The Hate Group Attacks The Target With Weapons, (7)  The Hate Group Destroys The Target. 

When you leaf through "The Seven-Stage Hate Model" article, and you should, note that the authors used "skinheads" as their hate group example.  But, while you are reading, substitute, as you go along, the word "skeptic" for "skinhead."  You'll get my meaning quickly, especially if you have had any experience with one, or more of the septic "skeptics." 

Meryl Dorey is gearing up for another round of attacks, this time, most likely violent disruption of AVN meetings, by the shoe salesman Daniel Rafaelle's strike team.  But this time, Dorey has advice, and support, from very tough Australian attorneys eager to engage Rafaelle and his "skeptic" ilk. 

Dang, I wish Australia were a little closer so I could be in on the kill, so to speak.  I love hunting predators.  There are few things as satisfying as listening to the trap spring, clamping down on a predator, changing them, instantly, into prey.  MORE

Doctor's Data v Barrett Case  - The Discovery Dam Has Been Burst...

Part Five:  Sorry - I can't volunteer to help look at Barrett's Tax Returns in Chicago...

October 4th, 2012 - I know.  I know.

I'd be the perfect person to go look at Stephen Barrett's Tax Returns with Doctor's Data's attorneys in the Doctor's Data v Barrett, Federal Court case.   But, I just can't do it.

It's not because I'm busy, and I am.  It's because once I had any active role in the case Barrett's attorneys would use that to try and silence me writing further articles about the situation.  They'd simply claim that anything I wrote in the future was related to Barrett's Tax Returns, blah, blah, blah...  And, the judge has ordered that, so far, the information the attorneys find in those Tax Returns from the year 2000 through the present, must stay within the court, and not be publicly revealed.

True - I'd be champing at the bit to reveal what I found in a meeting like that.

Below is the excerpt from the Discovery Demand that is causing all the contention.  I'm guessing that Barrett is laying on the floor kicking his feet, enraged at the idea that he "the Czar/God of US health care," would have to submit to such a thing.  MORE

Doctor's Data v Barrett Case  - The Discovery Dam Has Been Burst...

Part Two:  The Financial Documents

September 12th, 2012 - Get your sense of humor out, perhaps.  Perhaps not. 

As I pointed out in my last article "Part One - The Privilege Removal" Doctor's Data had filed TWO SEPARATE Motions to Compel in the Doctor's Data v Barrett case, asking the judge to issue a court Order forcing Barrett and the others to comply with Discovery demands. 

The judge quickly, and with gusto, issued his first Order, making it very clear that he wanted Barrett and his legal team to quit screwing around and start complying with simple court procedures - or else. 

I'm going to show the Order to you once again.  But, today, we will be concerned with only the last two sentences regarding "financial documents:"

Plaintiffs motion to compel pertaining to financial documents [141] remains under advisement pending further consultation between the parties, as discussed in court. Status hearing set for 9/19/2012 at 9:00 a.m.

The "financial documents" Motion to Compel is, in its way, of equal importance as the first Motion regarding Barrett's false claims of "privilege" - refusing to provide documents.  For, like certain specific parts of the first Motion, the information demand here is about "the conspiracy."  In these Discovery demands Doctor's Data wants to see where Barrett' and the other Defendant's money is coming from. 

In the first Motion, among other things, they were looking for further evidence of activities, patterns, and co-conspirators.  In the second Motion they they want to identify Barrett's Paymasters.   

They want to see:  (1)  Barrett and the other Defendant's tax returns,  (2)  All names and amount of contributions, including to Legal Defense Funds, to any of the Defendants, (3)  income from website activity.

Why do they want this?  For several reasons.  The primary reason is that there is a twenty million dollar (or more) claim on the table - and, frankly, Barrett, and the other Defendants, have absolutely NO DEFENSE. They did it. 

They even bragged about it. 

They even tried, after the lawsuit was filed, to quickly destroy Doctor's Data financially, removing their ability to sue Barrett and the other Defendants, by designing and executing a "Googlebomb," to falsely, and maliciously, make it appear to users of internet search engines like Google, Yahoo, or Bing that Doctor's Data was reviled by the scientific and medical community.  You can read the details of that incident here.

That didn't work.  And now it's time to pay the piper.  MORE

Doctor's Data v Barrett Update - 8/8/12

August 8th, 2012 - It's time for another chuckle.

Things are not going well for Stephen Barrett and his Cronies in the Doctor's Data v Barrett, et al, federal court case.  They are in the Discovery phase and it appears that Barrett, et al, are desperately trying to avoid releasing information that could, and would, be used against them. 

Doctor's Data, in a recent filing to the judge, complained that Barrett was submitting over a thousand last minute documents full of redactions, then trying to close the discovery process before Doctor's Data could demand un-redacted copies.

None of that surprises me.  I'll bet that doesn't surprise you either.

I've said, all along, that Stephen Barrett) and his co-Defendants, desperately needed to avoid "Discovery."  More, he really needed, originally, to avoid being sued, answering a lawsuit, going through the legal process, being Deposed, and going to trial.

But all that is happening. 

Despite his, and his minion's, best efforts to destroy Doctor's Data prior to trial, with an internet "hit" campaign, Doctor's Data is chewing parts off of Barrett - constantly. 

Currently there is a big "Discovery" fight where Barrett, and all, were trying to end the Discovery period before Doctor's Data could get more information it wanted.  Barrett lost that gambit when the judge ruled to give Doctor's Data another thirty days to try to decipher the crap Barrett and his legal beagles were presenting at the last minute as required "Discovery." 

Barrett had submitted over a thousand pages at the exact last minute, a significant part of which was "redacted," a process "to obscure or remove (text) from a document prior to publication or release."   MORE

"Amazing" Meeting - HUGE FAILURE

July 16th,  2012 - In a way I have no sense of humor about the group that calls themselves the "skeptics."  I feel that if we could congregate them all in the septic tank, and screw the lid down tightly, we'd all be much happier - them and us.  We'd each be king in our own world.

It's when there's a crack in the sewer system, and a few of them get out into the daylight, when problems start.

Time for some amusement though...

I am about to let you read a VERY interesting article in Religious News Service about the "Amazing" meeting titled "Do atheists (skeptics) have a sexual harassment problem?"  You can click on the title to read the whole thing.  But just to whet your interest read this intro:

"(RNS) As skeptics, atheists and humanists prepare to gather for their largest meeting in Las Vegas this weekend, attendance by women is expected to be down significantly.

Officials for The Amazing Meeting, or TAM, said Wednesday (July 11) that women would make up 31 percent of the 1,200 conference attendees, down from 40 percent the year before. A month before the conference, pre-registration was only 18 percent women, organizers said.

The explanations are many -- the bad economy, that women, as caregivers, are less able to get away, and that more men than women identify as skeptics, whose worldview rejects the supernatural and focuses on science and rationality.

But in the weeks preceding TAM, another possible explanation has roiled the nontheist community. Online forums have crackled with charges of sexism in TAM’s leadership and calls for the ouster of D.J. Grothe, the male president of the James Randi Educational Foundation, TAM’s organizer. In June, Rebecca Watson, a skeptic blogger and speaker, canceled her TAM appearance because, she said on her blog, she does “not feel welcome or safe.

Other nontheists -- both male and female -- have shared stories of unwanted sexual attention at nontheist gatherings, including propositions for sex and unwelcome touching. Chatter has ranged from calls for more women to attend nontheist events to personal attacks on prominent female skeptics for discussing harassment. Meanwhile, two more skeptic/feminist bloggers announced they will not attend TAM."  MORE

Knock-Down, Drag-Out War at UNEP (4)...

The Battle to Get Mercury Out Of Planet Earth's Environment...

July 4th,  2012 - It may well be that in the US Congress the drug lords, and the dental amalgam moguls, dominate, spraying money at easily bought off elected officials, but that tactic gets little traction at the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP 4) where the participants are Delegates from countries too long experiencing international corporate rape.

At the UNEP Mercury event it is a whole different situation.  The corporations do not hold sway.  But they certainly try.

I will show you, in a moment, an excerpt from a report on the conference authored by the International Institute of Sustainable Development (IISD) from the first day of the conference, Wednesday, June 27th, 2012 explaining the plenary session.  I bolded certain phrases in the below text for good reason.  The Opening Ceremony started with this:

"Following a short cartoon on mercury and a performance by a children’s choir, Fernando Lugris, INC Chair, Uruguay, opened the meeting, underscoring that mercury is a global problem warranting a global solution adapted to everyone’s reality. Monique Barbut, CEO of the Global Environment Facility (GEF), detailed several GEF mercury projects, noted that the INC negotiations will conclude as the negotiations for the GEF’s 6th replenishment are underway, and called on the INC to consider conveying a message to the GEF on resources needed for a mercury convention. Achim Steiner, Executive Director of UNEP, speaking via a video-message, called on negotiators to move beyond initial positions and “reach across the table.” Luis Almagro, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Uruguay, called on participants to take big strides towards the fifth and final session of the INC so as to establish a sound, dynamic regime to protect the environment and human health from mercury risks. A video was projected on the risks of ASGM and best practices promoted by UNEP in small gold-producing communities around the world."

Life is Just a Bowl of Cherries...

June 22nd,  2012 - I was five days, four nights, at the Chicago events - first the National Health Freedom Coalition on Wednesday night, and Thursday, then the Health Freedom Expo on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.  Thank the Lord I can sleep on airplanes.  One minute I'm leaving Chicago, the next I'm climbing down the rear staircase at Jet Blue's Long Beach Terminal.

The Coalition meeting was interesting to say the least, and a lot was accomplished.   I'm not going to say what all, just yet, but it was good seeing everyone once again. 

Anthony Stefan, from Canada, came, and we had lunch the day of the event.  Many of you will remember Tony's efforts from the famous Truehope v Health Canada case where Tony successfully argued that his supplement EMPowerplus, a powerful anti-bipolar product, was a "necessity" for Canadians.  In short Tony frog marched  Health Canada through the Courts - a tactical lesson for us all.  MORE

Steven Salzberg - PseudoScience's Dim Bulb...

June 2nd,  2012 - It is time for a laugh...

The pseudo-skeptic mini-machine is jam-packed with losers - from those that totally hide behind fake internet names to those that (snicker here) pad their resumés with high-sounding, but near-worthless, qualifications, to attempt to convince a reader that they know what they are talking about.  Pompous-Assity reigns.

There are just too many examples of this extant in their midst.  One need only look at Stephen Barrett, bobbie baratz, Orac the Nipple Ripper, or "Carpet-Head" Stephen Novella as examples.  They have almost a compulsiveness to puff themselves, desperately seeking some, any, recognition, even if it is based on false claims of authority. 

It is kind of  the anatomy of the entire pseudo-skeptic mini-movement..

A friend, the other day, sent me a link to an article written on the Forbes magazine blog by someone named Stephen Salzberg - who claims to be fighting PseudoScience.  He ought to know what that is - because he lives it.  Breathes it.  Smears it on walls and windows.

A quick look at his resumé makes it VERY clear that Salzberg could be a poster boy for EVERYTHING wrong with our current Scientific/Medical Research System.  What system is that?  MORE

How is the Autism/Health Freedom Alliance Going?

May 13th,  2012 - In early March of this year a trial coalition was formed between the North American Health Freedom Movement and the Autism Parents.  The first combined group meeting occurred at the Long Beach Health Freedom Expo, March 2nd, 3rd, and 4th, 2012, and it was a huge, high energy success. 

More, the meetings between leaders of both groups continued all weekend, starting with a "Meet and Greet" on Friday night.

As we know two conferences are coming up, for the groups, about three weeks apart.  The first, AutismOne, will be held May 23rd, through May 27th, 2012 at The Westin Lombard Yorktown Center, 70 Yorktown Shopping Center, Lombard, IL 60148.  The conference title, this year, is "The Dawn of a New Decade: From Truth to Treatment."

The second, about three weeks later, the Health Freedom Expo - Chicago, will be held at the Renaissance Schaumberg Hotel and Convention Center, 1551 N. Thoreau Dr, Schaumburg, IL 60173. It has a standard operating theme:

"What sets the Health Freedom Expo apart from other health expos is (that) the information presented is not 'just to sell product to consumers,' it's about people who are passionate about sharing information. It's about how our health freedoms are being taken away and it is about exposing the truth. Other shows are designed to sell product, here, that is available, but that is not the emphasis. The Health Freedom Expo is about educating and being empowered, and that is what makes it different."
 

I, Tim Bolen, am speaking at both.  More correctly, I am hosting panels at both.  And, leaders from both groups will be in attendance, roaming the hallways with a smile, making new alliances.

Federal Court Puts Barrett-Quackwatch-Skeptics "On Notice..."

April 30th,  2012 - The Skeptics (pseudo-skeptics) are pretty much in a panic.  Suddenly, not all that long ago, they began conducting the equivalent of online legal training, amongst themselves, trying to clean up their organizational assault so they don't, either individually, or in a group, get sued.

There is no doubt that a series of lawsuits, directed at their activity, has them spooked.

The most obvious of those lawsuits, of course, is the Doctor's Data v Barrett, et al, federal court case.  The second, by my analysis, is the Wakefield v Brian Deer, et al, case in Austin, Texas.  There are others, but they pale in comparison to these two.  And, more importantly, the pseudo-skeptics fear that this crop of lawsuits will grow into a wave of legal assaults against them across North America. 

Their fear is well grounded.  MORE

Mark & David versus Goliath...

April 14th,  2012 - If you think about it, there are only two questions that need to be answered to solve the Autism problem:  (1)  What's really causing it?  and (2)  how do we fix it?

Of course we know the answer to the first question (vaccines), and we are working on the second one.

Probably the biggest, and most devastating component in Autism causation, is thimerosal (mercury) used as a preservative in 96.2% of childhood vaccines offered worldwide.  There are several other Autism causation components, but we will only mention them today, while we focus on the thimerosal issue once again.

Do not for a moment think that I am minimizing the concerns of those pressing the MMR vaccine issues (like Andy Wakefield), or any of the other causations.  As you know, we are discussing all of those points - but not today.

Personally, I think the thimerosal issue is the most important one for two reasons:  (1)  It has caused the most damage, and (2)  It is symptomatic of the larger problem - the malevolence of an industry that has known for a very long time how damaging thimerosal is, could have eliminated it, and intentionally did not.

Background - For this article, today, I need to introduce you to what the not-long-ago  "Omnibus Autism Proceedings" (OAP) were about so you can see where this article begins, and we can outline the players.

The OAP was started because the Vaccine Court created by the  National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA), in 1987, had become overloaded with claims, and the Special Masters running the court simply did not want to have to trudge through the backlog of the 5,400 cases facing it over vaccine injuries.  So, they ordered that all of the 5,400 cases be distilled down into six representative cases - three from the MMR Vaccine causes Autism argument, and three from the Thimerosal (mercury) in vaccines causes Autism argument.

I have been working on a new articles series involving what's called the "Omnibus Autism Proceedings" (OAP) which, I have to say, is going to be the most scandalous yet of my Autism articles to date - even overshadowing the "The CDC Has Known All Along How Dangerous Vaccines Are - And Has Covered It Up... (Parts One thru Five) series.  MORE

Part Two - The Forming Alliance  - Health Freedom Movement Joining with Autism Parents...

The first meeting was a huge success...

March 6th,  2012  - The Health Freedom Expo in Long Beach, California (March 2, 3rd, and 4th, 2012),  the first official meeting between the North American Health Freedom Movement and the Autism Parents, was way, way bigger than I thought it would be....

People that know me soon figure out that I'm on the telephone constantly.  Bluetooth in my car makes driving just another office for me.  Telephone conversations with key people are very important, for it is the network that makes things happen.

Since I know the key people in the Health Freedom Movement, I know, beforehand, what they will say, for instance, in a speech at the Health Freedom Expo.  We already talked about it at length, of course, on the phone.  So, I don't need to be there to hear it again.

With that said, no one in the Movement would be surprised that I would show up at the Expo three hours after it started with my phone in my ear.  I had, of course, stopped at LAX to pick up attorney Bob Reeves (from Kentucky). 

When I walked into the convention center front door, right there, in the center's prime location, was the Registration Booth for the Health Freedom Expo - and the line of people there to get their weekend tickets was massive.

Massive - and Friday is generally the "slow day."

Oh my...

I turned around and looked down the main hallway, where the lectures were, and there were people milling as far as I could see, all the way down to the far doors, a very long ways away.

I saw Julie Whitman Kline over at one end of the eight station Registration Booth, and went over to Julie and asked "Ummm, how is the attendance?"  She pointed to the line, and further down the hallway, and smiled, saying "Very good, very good.." 

I was stunned.  Yes, getting the Health Freedom Movement together with the Autism parents was a good idea, but hey, the first time you do something, or try something new, no one expects instant success.  It just doesn't happen.

But this time it did.  That Registration line continued like that ALL DAY, and all day on Saturday.  At 1:00PM on Sunday I walked by the booth again and there were at least a dozen people buying tickets - and the last lecture was at 5:00PM.

Oh my...  MORE

Barrett SCREECHES Over Doctor's Data Settlement Offer....

January 12th, 2012 - Judges in Court cases ENCOURAGE parties to settle,  The new Judge in the Doctor's Data v Stephen Barrett Federal Court case is no exception.  After all, the court system is overloaded. 

Shortly after Judge Edmond E. Chang issued his Decision in Barrett's Motion to Dismiss the entire case, Chang indicated to the parties that it would be a good time to talk "settlement."  Chang ordered settlement talks.

According to Court documents filed, following the Judge's request, Doctor's Data set up a meeting with Barrett's Chicago law firm to discuss settlement.  Jeff Levens and Al Augustine, attorneys for Doctor's Data, personally attended the meeting with Peter M. Katsaros, of Golan & Christie LLP, Barrett's Chicago attorneys.  Michael Botts, Defendants’ lead attorney, joined via conference call.  The documents say:

"During said meeting, Mr. Levens continued, Mr. Augustine and he listed four components that were and are integral to a settlement: Defendants would (1) delete the offensive articles from the Internet; (2) agree not to discuss Plaintiff for a specified period of time, other than to (3) publish a pre-agreed retraction; and (4) pay some amount of money in damages. It was emphasized that Plaintiff would be extremely reasonable with respect to its monetary demand were Defendants to agree to the three non-monetary components.

Mr. Katsaros then told the court that no settlement would be possible where Plaintiff had demanded a “7-figure” payment. This statement was not true, however, because no amount whatsoever had been stated during the meeting of September 10, 2010.   MORE

Santa Claus Delivers Stephen Barrett's Ass On a Platter...

December 23rd, 2011 - Yes, the title of this article is rude. But I've got some last minute Christmas shopping to do, and I'm not going to nice it up.  The reality, of course, that it was not actually Santa Claus that delivered Barrett's parts, but a Federal Judge.  Considering the timing of the Judge's actions, I'll stick with the title.

Last January 31st, 2011 Stephen Barrett, of quackwatch,com infamy, filed a Motion to Dismiss in its entirety, the Doctor's Data v Stephen Barrett  Federal court case.  Barrett's reasoning  (if you could call it that) was that he was protected from lawsuits because he, Barrett, was "Assisting Government."  Laugh here.

More, it was clear to me, was that Barrett was demanding that the Federal Court declare him, Stephen Barrett, as the undisputed "Czar/God of US Health Care."  Barrett, too, demanded that both the National Council Against Heath Fraud (NCAHF), and Quackwatch Inc, be removed from the case.   More, Barrett demanded "sanctions" against Doctor's Data and their lawyers, blah, blah, blah...

A new Judge had taken over the case, so there was a delay in the Judge's Decision in Barrett's Motion to Dismiss.  But we need to wait no longer.  The Decision is in.

Barrett lost...  MORE

Maryland Board of Physicians May Not Survive Attack on Mark and David Geier...

December 4th,  2011 - The Maryland Board of Physicians woke up last week to find that the Maryland legislature, which they thought, I guess, was completely asleep, had quietly, and very thoroughly, conducted a formal investigation of the board's operation.  The legislative committee in charge of this secret investigation issued a two-hundred page report scalding the department, virtually declaring the board incompetent and working against the interests of the people of Maryland. 

In a moment I will show you flaming excerpts from this report. 

Last April 28th, 2011 famous mercury issue attorney Bob Reeves had  called me, asking me to look into, as a Crisis Management Consultant, the Maryland Geier situation and give him, and the Geiers, my Opinion and make some Recommendations.  I did that, both publicly and privately.  You can read my original public analysis by clicking here.

One thing I had pointed out, both publicly and privately, was that, in my opinion, the board, itself, was operating, not for the people of Maryland, but for special interests (the vaccine construction) - I pointed out specifics.    I pointed out that licensing boards, despite their own ideas of how they operate, do NOT operate without oversight, and that whatever that oversight in Maryland was, it needed to be activated immediately.  MORE

WHO, CDC, and FDA SCORNED at Third UN Mercury Conference...

November 7th,  2011 -  Things couldn't have seemed rosier for Big Pharma last January, 2011.  Dismayed as they were at failed attempts to stave off financial losses from upcoming patent-run-outs, the situation, at least in the vaccine program, was nicely going to generate tons of gold bullion, satchels of emeralds, and shiploads of cash in ever increasing amounts - more than enough to keep those CEO and top executive annual bonuses rolling in.  Boards of Directors, and Common Stock Financial Fund Managers were all friendly - warm and fuzzy.

Then on January 27th, 2011 the bottom dropped out of their world.  Suddenly, with virtually no warning, the entire "Vaccine Construction" so carefully constructed, so snickered over in Boardrooms, was, not only at risk, but was likely to come crashing down.  Mark and David Geier, accompanied by Lisa Sykes showed up, information packets in hand, at the second United Nations Environment Programme - Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee to prepare a global legally binding instrument on Mercury (INC2).  CoMeD, their anti-mercury in medicine organization, had been accepted by the UN as a Non Government Organization (NGO), an official delegate to the UN program.

The drug lords, and their under-minion's, gasping began...

By the end of the conference the "Thimerosal in Vaccine" issue was part of the UN agenda.

For Big Pharma leadership, breathing became difficult.  MORE

The CDC Has Known All Along How Dangerous Vaccines Are - And Has Covered It Up... (Part Three)

October 22nd,  2011 - Today, I am going to talk about what US government agencies involved in vaccine regulation knew, and when they knew it regarding the problems of Thimerosal in vaccines.  First though, I will talk about why this is important information to have. 

In articles part one and two I showed you what Biochemist Brian Hooker PhD has been doing with his time since late 2004.  Hooker has been trying to get public information about the five studies the Center for Disease Control and prevention (CDC) claims it ordered, and now relies on, claiming that mercury in vaccines is safe and effective.

Here is what I said:

"In late 2004 Biochemist Scientist Brian Hooker PhD had had enough.  He'd been looking, carefully, through the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)'s so-called "Evidence" that Thimerosal was "Safe and Effective" as a preservative in vaccines.  Having read all of the then available CDC studies making that claim, he, as a PhD Scientist, couldn't help but shake his head "NO."  To him, none of the purported proof was anywhere near being scientifically adequate.  Far from it.

So, like any math teacher would do to a student he began to communicate to the CDC his questions.   In essence he was saying "Show me your work.  Show me how you came up with these answers" - a reasonable question series among scientists, teachers and students, and frankly, the population of Planet Earth.

What was CDC's response?  STONEWALL -  a six year knock-down, drag-out brawl to get that information.  Brian Hooker would not let up.  Neither would the CDC.

Of course, as we know, EVERY American is entitled to review EVERY government agency's actions and deliberations, with few exceptions - and Hooker eventually ended up filing a federal lawsuit against the CDC, and it is becoming VERY clear that the CDC employees, like it or not, are going to have to cough up all of their internal memos on the subject. 

I suspect, after that, that all hell is going to break loose for, without doubt, with what internal memos Hooker already has gotten, it is already clear the in an order of magnitude, EVERY one of those CDC studies was faked with the intent of covering up the facts about how dangerous vaccines really are.

Let me repeat that - EVERY one of the CDC studies showing the so-called safety of mercury in vaccines has been intentionally faked, so as to lead the American Public, and every entity worldwide that relies on the CDC for information, to believe that mercury in vaccines is safe - it is not.

Why did the CDC employees do that?  I will explain below.  Keep reading.

Why would anyone knowingly cover up the dangers of Thimerosal in vaccines?

Here is what I suspect:  There are THREE main reasons:  MORE

The CDC Has Known All Along How Dangerous Vaccines Are - And Has Covered It Up... (Part One)

October 4th,  2011 - I've been working on this story for months.  There are so many parts and paths to it, and the information I have gathered is so shocking, it is simply difficult to write. 

Maybe it is taking so long because I don't want to be the messenger. 

And, I am going to have to break this story up into several parts.

Starting Point...

A man named Brian Hooker PhD has recently filed a lawsuit in Federal Court in Washington DC against the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) demanding that the CDC quit stalling on his Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests and provide him with the public information he is looking for.  Hooker has been making specific FOIA requests to the CDC since March 11, 2005 on the subject of the CDC's five "Thimerosal in vaccines studies." The CDC claims, falsely, that these five studies prove the safety and efficacy of Thimerosal.

Hooker had adequate reasons to be suspicious of the CDC, and their Thimerosal position.  I will give you those details in another article.

Hooker is a scientist and knows how studies are supposed to be done.  When he examined those five CDC studies he found a number of serious credibility issues with every one of them.  So he began asking questions, and it wasn't long before the CDC shut the door.  Illegally.

The CDC simply did not want a real scientist asking them pointed questions.

Hooker wants the details, including all communications between the parties involved in the studies' communications (letters, emails, etc.).  He has accumulated, over time, a massive amount of information on the subject, and is insistent on getting, and examining, every last piece of paper, email, whatever.  The CDC is falling all over itself trying to keep records away from Brian Hooker.

Hooker has a thirteen year old son with Autism. As usual, Brian Hooker's son was just fine prior to being vaccinated.

I have seen what Brian Hooker has already gathered and on the basis of that alone I can easily reach the conclusion, as you would, that:

The CDC Has Known All Along How Dangerous Vaccines Are - and Has Covered It Up...

What I am going to tell you about in this article is that the anti-vaccination movement is absolutely right in their concerns about the vaccine situation, and, in fact, many parts of the movement would be far more upset if they knew what I NOW KNOW.

The situation is far worse than you can imagine.

So, let's begin...  MORE

Some Words About Bobbie Kennedy Junior...

September 12th,  2011 -Understand, right here, and right now, that I am a Conservative Republican from Orange County, California.  Keep that in mind, right here, and right now, while I comment on Bobbie Kennedy Jr's political activities - especially those surrounding the vaccine issues.

I am, of course, researching and writing a series on what I call the "vaccine construction."  Of course I came across Kennedy's writings on the subject, and his TV appearances.  I read it all.

And,  I liked every damned bit of it.  Good for you Bobbie...

Let me tell you what I don't like...   MORE

All About THIMEROSAL - Why the Controversy?

August 16th,  2011 - If you look to the right, in the column box, you'll see that this is the eighth article in a series that, for the most, is about Mark and David Geier, and the team surrounding them's, effort to remove, finally, Thimerosal (mercury), from medicines - especially vaccines - and the attack on them for their efforts.

As I sifted through the issues, and consequently, the people involved in those issues, I again and again asked the question "Why doesn't the pharmaceutical industry just make vaccines without Thimerosal?"  I received a lot of different answers in the form, primarily, of hypothesis.  No definite answers.

I suspect that the answers are a combination of things we'll talk about as we go along.  But, for now, let me point out some history, lest we forget about how mankind's institutions actually function.

So-called "Medical Science" is really anything but.

I have to laugh when I see one more group setting itself up as the protectors of "Evidenced Based Medicine," or some other equally impressive sounding nonsense cliché.  You only have to look as far, for instance, as the wanna-be "Czar/God of US Health Care" Stephen Barrett for an example of the self-promoting nobodies, with no qualifications, who proclaim that they, and they alone, are the authority on proper health care.  Frankly, Barrett represents nothing new.  There has always been a "Barrett," in health care.

History shows us, quite clearly, that the "authority" figures in each medical science period, for the most part, were the biggest of fools, the most pompous of idiots, and the worst possible people to direct health care.  For some reason, consistently, scum rises to the surface in our official health care systems.

So, why should we, here in 2011 think things should be any different?  Why should we think that, somehow, health care could, or would, be dominated by thinking individuals who ask the proper questions, and find solutions.  Nah, that's what we have bureaucracies like the FDA, and the CDC, for.  Society seems to demand that we set up systems (agencies) to do things the dumbest way possible.  Of course, the FDA and the CDC excel at that.  Lawrence J. Peter said it best with his Peter Principle- "in a hierarchy every employee tends to rise to his level of incompetence".

Peter also said  "Bureaucracy defends the status quo long past the time when the quo has lost its status."

With that - let's talk about Thimerosal...  MORE

Where'd the Money Come From?  

Grell/Barrett Pay Off Polevoy - Polevoy Pays Off Rosenthal...

July 31st, 2011 - Last week I wrote an article titled "Polevoy Thrashes Barrett and Grell in California - Piles of Money Change Hands..."   From it, Stephen Barrett, sent me three emails this last week - two of them were angry, and the third sort of whimpered. 

Barrett was denying everything.  I'll show you the email exchange in a minute.

Stephen Barrett,hasn't sent me an email since the year 2000, eleven years ago.  Barrett at the time was VERY angry at me, and, frankly, I had given him VERY good reason for that anger.  I mocked him in his own group, and there was nothing he could do about it - for I had been given his insider mailing list - and I was using it - sending personal copies of my newsletter to his insider group.  Barrett was livid, and so were his people. 

Why were they all so angry?  Several reasons:  (1)  They couldn't control the information flow - which seems to be their mission in life, and (2)  the list, and there was only 340 people on it,  gave me access to their IP addresses, so I could trace them to their home computers should someone, anyone, want to legally Summons them in a court case (Remember when Hulda Clark filed a RICO Complaint against all those people?), and  (3)  My message to those quackpots, who liked being scary to others, was very clear - "I'm right here in your den and you ain't much." 

I was learning, even then, that Barrett's support network (his minions) simply were not much as people - a pack of life's frustrated losers, venting at the world.

This time, however, I think, it isn't me invading his group and telling them what's really going on (they all monitor my newsletter, anyway - and some of them even know how to look up the meaning of the bigger words).  This time Barrett's anger seems to be about the subject material described in the title of THIS article.

New Court Document Entered:  Barrett on Knees, Whimpering, Begging for Mercy...

June 26th, 2011 - There has been a new court document filed this last June 22, 2011, in the Doctor's Data v Barrett, et al, case.  This one, totally disjointed, unsigned by any of Barrett's attorneys, makes me wonder.

Supposedly, this document was an answer to a filing by Doctor's Data, pointing out that there was a new case, just decided, since the Doctor's Data v Barrett, et al filing, that has some bearing on the legal arguments in the pending "Motion to Dismiss" decision.

But, you certainly can't tell that from the so-called "Response."

Disjointed as it was, leaping from jagged thought to jagged thought, it gave me the impression that Barrett had found some homeless person, who used to be a lawyer before he/she burned out their brain on street drugs, handed them their fourth jug of wine, and received, in return, this document. MORE

What's Coming Up in the Geier Case...

June 13th,  2011 - It is surprising to the average American to find out that "the system" we the people put in place to monitor our interests, a good part of the time, simply does not work.  It becomes corrupted by the very people we entrusted.

Parents of Autistic children are the latest group to find out this harsh truth.  They, without doubt, are among the worst of the victims.  They join, for instance, families of Cancer victims, who, themselves, thought our American health care system had value - until one of theirs met the US Cancer Industry - and they watched their loved one die horribly to be followed up by a hospital's collection agents come after the survivor's home to pay "the co-pay."

An entire government bureaucracy has been set up surrounding vaccines.  Whole State, Federal, and local agencies are dependant on the myth that vaccines have safety and efficacy.  Overwhelming evidence shows they have neither.

In fact, the evidence is SO OVERWHELMING that those same government agencies hide that data.  The Center for Disease Control (CDC) blocks any and all access to vaccine adverse event information.  They have to, I suspect, for if the facts were known no one would vaccinate their children - and the system would come down overnight.  MORE

Why Was The World-Wide Vaccine industry So Panicked Over The Geiers Addressing the UNEP Meeting in Japan?

May 24th,  2011 - According to the authoritative source, VaccineEthics.org:

"Virtually all licensed vaccines in the United States are produced by just a handful of pharmaceutical companies: GlaxoSmithKline, Merck, Novartis, Sanofi Pasteur, and Wyeth. These companies account for 80 percent of the worldwide vaccine market.1 With a limited number of manufacturers and many recommended vaccines produced by only a single company, vaccines are susceptible to large fluctuations in supply and availability.

In Texas (2) -

Feds Spit On Barrett's Claims About Austin's CARE Clinics...

April 16th, 2011 - Stephen Barrett and his masters and minions are REALLY IN BIG TROUBLE.  They put together a coordinated  attack on cutting-edge Autism testing and treatment - and it failed - and now it is coming back on them. 

Proceeding on information provided by Barrett and his sleazy cronies, in July of 2009 Federal investigators, including the FBI and the IRS, acting under a Federal Search Warrant, raided CARE Clinics in Austin, Texas seizing 250 boxes of records, including patient records.  The warrant claimed they were looking for evidence of health fraud and insurance fraud.  The clinic was using the following Protocol.

Last Week, April 7th, 2011 to be exact, a US Justice Department Attorney, Mark Lane, notified the clinic's attorney, Rick Jaffee, that the investigation was over and that no charges would be sought.  He told them to come and pick up those two hundred fifty (250) boxes of records seized in that July 2009 raid.

This action represents a major defeat for Stephen Barrett, and his network, who were clearly behind the attack.  In a minute I am going to let you read all of Barrett's submitted paperwork, but before you see it I want to point out some things you will see.  More, I will point out things you DO NOT see.  But let's start with a few introductory paragraphs from Barrett's unsuccessful Complaint to the Texas Medical Board:   MORE

"Assisting Government" - The New Legal Argument for Nutbags...

March 30th, 2011 - I simply cannot get over the fact that Stephen Barrett actually found attorneys who would write legal papers demanding that he, Barrett, be declared the Czar/God of US health care and Dismiss the Doctor's Data v Barrett, et al, case on the basis that Stephen Barrett, in his total nutbag role, is "assisting government."  Wow!

Just think - a whole new legal concept, that when employed, would change the face of law as we know it.

I guess, under that legal argument, it is too bad that Adolph Hitler didn't know Stephen Barrett and his legal team.  For, if he did, way back then, just think, instead of Adolph and Eva Braun committing double suicide in their Berlin bunker, they could have, simply, run for the American lines, hands raised, screaming "we were assisting government, we were assisting government, we were assisting government, we were assisting government..."

With this novel "assisting government" legal argument the conviction of serial killer, rapist, necrophiliac, torturer, cannibal Jeffrey Dahmer might of been avoided.  Dahmer could have claimed he was, you know, helping the government get rid of excess population, avoiding the cost of public burial, etc...

Then there's Ted Bundy, Charles Manson, Manuel Noriega, Joseph Stalin, Dracula, Pol Pot, Caligula, Vlad the Impaler, Hernando Cortes, Lucrecia Borgia, John Wilkes Booth - all "clearly misunderstood" if you insert the "assisting government" legal argument into their mix.

Even better, jump on your favorite highway, jam your foot to the floor, ignore those "School Zone" signs, and see how much fun you can have holding that speedometer needle at top speed while you are "assisting government" to keep law enforcement at maximum efficiency.

Gee whiz - why didn't we, as Americans, just write this idea into our Constitution?  Where was George, Tom, and Ben (Washington, Jefferson, and Franklin)?  (sarcasm intended).

It is not the first time Stephen Barrett has come up with a total whack-job legal theory...

It is not even the second or the third time.

In no particular order I'll lay out some of Barrett's previous legal theories - all of which, of course, have been summarily rejected by the Courts. MORE

Stall, Stall, Stall - Stephen Barrett in a Diarrhea Panic?  He Should Be, For the Worst Is Yet To Come...

March 23rd, 2011 - It has happened again.  Stephen Barrett, the man who would be the Czar/God of US healthcare can't make another deadline in the Doctor's Data v Barrett, et al, Federal Court case, and has whimpered to the Judge that he needs more time (sniff, sniff).

I'm not even mildly surprised.

The Motion For Extension of Time was filed by the Chicago attorneys.   Barrett's so-called lead attorney, Michael K. Botts, seems to have disappeared, and if he's working at all, it may be out of the trunk of his car - since it was pointed out in the Plaintiff's Objection to an Extension of Time, that Botts is NOT working at the law office, anymore, that he claimed he worked at, at the beginning of the case.

Once again,  I am not even mildly surprised.  We are, of course, dealing with quackbusters.  MORE

The 2011 Long Beach Health Freedom Expo...

 March 18th, 2011 - The Health Freedom Expo series is in its seventh year.  It seems like just yesterday that I went to the first one over by the LA Airport.  Wendell Whitman, who I dearly miss, was wandering around by the sign-up booth worrying that not enough people would come. 

Did they come?  Oh yes.  The following year the event was moved to the much larger Long Beach Convention Center.  This year, it has moved to an even larger facility yet, still at the Long Beach Convention Center - March 25th, 26th, and 27th, 2011.

Wendell passed away in 2008, and although his marvelous daughter Julie Whitman Kline carries on very well, I miss his presence, and his tart sense of humor.  Being of the same age group we could comment with same references on the state of the world - and we did.

I spoke at those early Expos, and went out of my way to recruit the best speakers I could find.  Hulda Clark found a home there, speaking both on Saturday and Sunday, and holding a lab on Sunday afternoons.

But, for me, it was, and is, the camaraderie.  The hallways, byways, the exhibitor floor, and the doorways going in and out of speaker's rooms become the place of smiles where, if sometimes only for a moment, you get to greet old friends and allies, from the years gone by. MORE

Google Shuts Down Quackbuster Discussion Group...

February 23rd, 2011 - Google, the owner of the famous search engine, also runs a series of Discussion Groups, called "Google Groups."  For as long as anyone can remember there has been a Discussion Group called "misc.health.alternative."  But no longer.  Yesterday, Google shut it down, claiming the group violated Google's Terms Of Service.

It was never known who started the group, nor who managed it.  But it was always clear that it was a forum for bashing cutting edge health care, for the most part by posters using a fake name, and more often than not, those posters viciously attacked, using the most offensive language and suggestions of odd sexual preferences.

Some of the internet's nastiest posters got their start here.  "Orac the Nipple Ripper," for instance, reveled here, belittling his betters until, of course, his identity was revealed, and the attack on him was reversed.  Avoiding the sting, he ran for his own Blog, where he could control the posted comments about his writings.

But Google shut it down, quite ceremoniously... MORE

Trine "Two Shoes" Tsouderos - Barrett's Tokyo Rose...

January 25th, 2011 - The Desperation Level in the Quackpot camp has reached an all-time high.  The Doctor's Data v Stephen Barrett Federal Court case is so devastating to them that they are, without doubt, at a point similar to where the Japanese High Command was when the Americans were designing the attack on their mainland towards the end of Word War II.

The Japanese, at that point, put together a very desperate three-part strategy:  (1)  Kamikaze airplane pilots who would sacrifice their lives driving their airplanes into American naval ships.  (2)  An organized "fight to the death" to defend the homeland, and (3)  a continuing propaganda effort to do two things (a) convince the Japanese people to keep fighting, and (b) convince the American soldiers that millions of them would die during an invasion attempt of the mainland.

The last tactic (3)(b) was conducted through Japanese radio broadcasts out of Tokyo, and, as in broadcasts conducted throughout the war, centered around an English speaking female figure known to US servicemen as "Tokyo Rose. MORE

Captain Screwloose (Stephen Barrett) Runs For Cover...

December 14th, 2010 - I predicted this would happen months ago in the Doctor's Data v Stephen Barrett Federal Court case.

On August 25th, 2010, in an article called "Has Stephen Barrett's "Puppet Master" Appeared? " I said:

"So, what do I think will happen now?  Instead of a "legal" Defense, they're going to use a two part strategy: 

(1)  Delay, delay, delay - for the last thing the quackbusters want is to have Barrett (a) examined by a Psychiatrist, (b)  forced into a two or three day video taped Deposition. (c)  or to have the NCAHF board members Deposed, (d) or to have Paul Kurtz, Terry Polevoy, Orac the Nipple Ripper, Steve Novella, William London, or Paul Lee Deposed."

Any of the above would create a disaster for them.

Why?  Once the Response message is on file then the public relations campaign to destroy Doctor's Data Laboratory, and the Doctors that have used their services, will begin in earnest.  Barrett, and his Puppet Master, will call on all of their resources, all at once, in an effort to win."

Well, I told you so...  (Insert laughter here).

On December 3rd, 2010, one of Stephen Barrett's attorneys filed a Motion to DELAY imposition of Discovery requirements for at least twenty one more days while they prepare to file another Motion.   MORE

The Doctor's Data v. Barrett, et al, case - a Summary to Date...

November 19th, 2010 - The  Doctor's Data v Stephen Barrett Federal Court is, by far, the most important court case involving health care in North America, for, for the first major time the group that conspires to damage emerging health care systems in favor of the status quo is, itself, under major attack, and will likely be destroyed by this action.  And, it is about time.

Federal Court cases tend to drag on.  So that we don't lose track of what's happening in the Doctor's Data v Stephen Barrett Federal Court case I'm going to summarize the case for you to date, by outlining what has already happened.  Then I'll give you an idea of what is going to happen next.

In short, we are all waiting for the Discovery Schedules due December 6th, 2010.  With that we'll be able to predict what will happen, and when it will happen.  Discovery will be the key to breaking up the quackbuster conspiracy and impoverishing its members.  With luck, enough information may be gathered to convert this case into a full-blown RICO action with all of the likely consequences.  MORE

Barrett Responds to Doctor's Data v Barrett Lawsuit...

October 10th, 2010 - Warning - sarcasm present.

Finally - a Response from Stephen Barrett et al, in the Doctor's Data v Barrett Federal lawsuit.  In essence, Barrett's legal team took forty-four (44) pages to say "We deny everything. So there." 

And, it took Barrett one hundred and seventeen (117) days to come up with that answer.  This from a guy who, Court documents show, was commenting on cases filed against his victims up to one day (-1) before the actual filing.

Strangely, the Response was filed, not by Barrett's so-called "lead" attorney Micheal K. Botts but by the local counsel Peter M. Katsaros, a senior partner at Golan and Christie in Chicago.  Hmmm?

It looks like Barrett's legal bills are piling up.  MORE

Why the Doctor's Data v Barrett case is important to North America...

September 22nd, 2010 - The US health care system is in tatters.  It is total crap, run by crooks and idiots, who on their best day, either by design, or stupidity, cannot find any solutions.

The "War on Cancer" has been running almost 39 years - and we are not even close to official answers - because the "war" is intentionally designed to fail.

The US health care system, itself, is the number one killer of Americans. Health problems that could, and should, have been solved years ago, like autism, diabetes and heart disease tear our society apart.

Why is this happening?  Because the system generates way too much money the way it is.  No one within the system wants change.  And, "the system" has built in defense mechanisms designed to kill threats to itself.

One of those built in mechanisms is the "quackbuster" operation, a cleverly designed process whereby virtually any treatment, lab test, device, author, practitioner, or idea that is outside of the current US health care "status quo" gets systematically rolled in excrement, so to speak, and publicly held up to ridicule by a mostly hidden group.  The flagship for this operation is Quackwatch.com and its aging, bitter, loser, Stephen Barrett.

But there is much more to the "quackbuster" operation than Barrett.  Why do I say that?  Because, although Barrett intentionally publicly paints his enemies with sewage, no one would care what this rabid old fart has to say if his material never floated to the top of search engines.  But it does - and it is not by accident.

In short, Obamacare, nor any other current health care solution, on the table, proposed by the "thinkers,"  is going to help North Americans for one simple reason.  The proposed solutions fail, at first, to identify the real problems of North American Health Care - and that problem is that we are on a maintenance of symptom system rather than a cure system.  In short, Cancer, Heart Disease, Diabetes, Stroke, Autism, Cerebral Palsy, and more can all be beaten right now with existing science and technology - but all of that science and technology is blocked, and its proponents intentionally smeared in the public's eye.  MORE

"Igor" Not In Evidence - No Lead Attorney For Barrett - Yet...

September 9th, 2010 - It was three long weeks ago that Michael K. Botts, Esq. applied (Pro Hac Vice) to the Federal Court in Chicago to, supposedly, represent Stephen Barrett in the Doctor's Data v Barrett, Federal Court case. 

On August 26th we saw that Botts had been rejected by the Court but was being re-applied by Barrett's local counsel, to the Court.

Well, guess what?  MORE

Has Stephen Barrett's "Puppet Master" Appeared?

August 25th, 2010 - I think the arrival of Michael K. Botts, Esq. as Stephen Barrett's attorney in the Doctor's Data v Barrett, Federal lawsuit is significant. 

It is a flat-out desperation move.  Simply, Stephen Barrett could not afford to hire a law firm to Defend.  So someone is providing an attorney of their choice - not someone Barrett would pick - Michael K. Botts, who is not a litigator but an intellectual property and patent attorney. 

Why would someone pick Botts when he is not a litigator? MORE

Quackwatch, Inc Fails To Respond...

August 3rd, 2010 - Keep in mind that there are three Defendants in the Doctor's Data v Barrett, et al Federal Court case in Northern Illinois - and all three have to lawyer up and Respond within the Court's required time. 

Only Barrett, himself, as an individual, was given 60 days, instead of 21, to formally Respond to a lawsuit.  Neither of the other two Defendants, Quackwatch, Inc, nor the National Council Against Health Fraud (NCAHF) was given any extra time.  They have 21 days from the time of service to hire legal counsel and formally Respond.

Well guess what?

Quackwatch, Inc. was served on July 6th, 2010.  Twenty-one days later was July 28th, 2010.  So - Quackwatch, Inc now has a big problem. MORE

Barrett and NCAHF Gasping for Breath Over Doctor's Data Lawsuit?  What's Next?

July 16th, 2010 - The silence is telling.

It is now, by my initial  calculations, four days beyond the deadline for Stephen Barrett to have filed a Response to the Federal Lawsuit filed against him by Doctor's Data laboratory in the Northern District of Illinois. 

I just now checked my Pacer Account - and no Response has been filed by anyone, and there is no attorney listed for any of the Defendants.

Yup, the silence is telling. And, it feels really good. MORE

Barrett Has Not Even "Lawyered-Up" Yet...

July 4th, 2010 - In the Federal Court System a defendant is given 21 full days to properly Respond to a lawsuit.  Let's assume, for the moment, that since Stephen Barrett was sued by Doctor's Data on June 18th, 2010, that he was served with papers on the 19th, the next day.  Counting 21 days from that moment brings us to Monday, July 12th, 2010 - the deadline for Barrett to hire an attorney who can practice in Federal Court in Chicago, Illinois, and prepare, and submit a Response to the Court.  That's eight days from now - and Barrett does not even have an attorney yet.

What happens if Barrett does not Respond? (I'm getting all excited thinking about this).  MORE

US Federal Trade Commission Drills North Carolina Dental Board...

June 21st, 2010 - The North Carolina Dental board is in BIG TROUBLE...

On Thursday June 17th, 2010 The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) filed formal charges against the North Carolina Dental Board, saying:

"Dentists in North Carolina, acting through the instrument of the North Carolina Board of Dental Examiners (“Dental Board”), are colluding to exclude non-dentists from competing with dentists in the provision of teeth whitening services. The actions of the Dental Board prevent and deter non-dentists from providing or expanding teeth whitening services, increase prices and reduce consumer choice without any legitimate justification or defense, including the “state action” defense. The actions of the Dental Board unreasonably restrain competition and violate Section 5 of the Federal Trade Commission Act." MORE

Will the San Diego Federal Judge Put Stephen Barrett in Jail?...

June 7th, 2010 - Oh my, the "Barrett Settlement" story, in San Diego, is getting even better.  It seems that now the Federal judge in the case has assigned a Federal Magistrate Judge, Judge Cathy Ann Bencivengo "to retain jurisdiction for settlement purposes."

Wow - this could could get interesting.  VERY interesting.  I'll explain.

I have a copy, right here on my desk, of the settlement statement wording agreed to, and ORDERED by the Court, and so far, I don't see that wording on Barrett's website, nor do I see his minions mouthing those COURT ORDERED words.  Apparently they must all be in shock and cannot bring themselves to comply with the Court Order.

And NO, I'm not going to tell you what those COURT ORDERED words are.  I'm going to wait and see what happens.  Frankly, I hope Barrett decides to defy the Federal Magistrate Judge.  Then Negrete can file for an Order of Contempt.  Being called on the carpet in front of a Federal Judge could have serious consequences for Barrett.

Contempt, in a Federal court, is taken very seriously.  Below is the official definition:  MORE

Wikipedia Doesn't Like Me ...

January 2nd, 2010 - Wikipedia's General Counsel, Mike Godwin, is sending me nasty emails.  Apparently he doesn't like me telling people how bad Wikipedia actually is, and he definitely doesn't want me telling you what to do about it - when it effects you personally.  He actually, the other day, said I "was trying to destroy Wikipedia..."

Stand back while I turn down my testosterone levels.

Even though, in some ways, it feels good to have some people think I'm that kind of powerful, I can't really claim credit for what's happening to Wikipedia. The whole world is beginning to realize that Wikipedia is being run by the social equivalent of a pimply twelve year old. 

Wikipedia is coming apart.  What I'm offering is a remedy for its victims.  How?  I'm telling people how to sue Wikipedians in the Courts to stop them from victimizing others.  I've got the formula to beat them (and I'll tell what that is further into the article) - and Mike Godwin doesn't want me to talk about it.  He says:

"Thank you providing evidence of intent to engage in strategic litigation aimed at shutting down Wikipedia."
 

Yup, he really said that.  Let me adjust that testosterone knob one more time.  MORE

What Obama's Health Care Reform is Missing...

November 12th, 2009 - A lot of very smart people I know think that the so-called Swine Flu "pandemic" is a simple marketing ploy created by the foreign owned pharmaceutical industry to sell, nearly useless, and untested, dangerous vaccines to an unsuspecting US public.  In fact, it looks as though about 50% of the people in North America think so.

I don't disagree with that - but I think there is more to this.  I think this "pandemic" campaign is a not-so-subtle threat to President Barack Obama and the US Congress...  I think that Big Pharma organized this "pandemic" to give a clear message to the US government about how much power they actually have and how they will use it if Obama and the Congress try to rein in the pharmaceutical industry - which we all know, is primarily, but not solely, responsible for the horrendous costs, and problems, of US health care.  In short, their message is simple: 

"We, Big Pharma, own the US TV News Media.  We tell news broadcasters exactly what they are going to say about healthcare.  They play the footage that WE provide for them about healthcare issues, and nothing else.  If you try to rein in our industry we will destroy you using this tool."

In short, we are not going to be able to fix the US healthcare system until we take back control of our own Television news hours. MORE

Truehope "Raids" Health Canada...

November 3rd, 2009 - Yesterday, a Canadian company Truehope, the makers of EMPowerplus, the first supplement product in North America to be protected against attack by a government agency by the Court System, started their second round of assault against Health Canada. 

Let's wish them well...

In their first round they slapped Health Canada around a Canadian Courtroom, getting the Court to Order Health Canada to leave them alone.  The Court ruled, simply, that EMPowerplus, a supplement product that reverses Bi-Polar issues, did not require approval from Health Canada, and that it was "a necessity" to the people that used it.  Health Canada employees had stopped entry of the product into Canada (it is manufactured in the US) causing several people to die, and many others to suffer, without it.  No Health Canada employees, however, were ever criminally indicted for those deaths.

Yup - they are attacking Health Canada one more time - and if they win this assault they will have completely removed Health Canada's teeth, so to speak.  Health Canada might as well, after this, lock the doors and send the employees home. MORE

Barrett Lawsuit Against Tim Bolen Dies of Old Age in California Court...

September 23rd, 2009 - I've always said that Stephen Barrett, as a man, just wasn't much. Recently he proved my point - in spades. How? 

On November 3rd, of the year 2000, this rancid old fart, and a couple of his equally stunted cronies, filed a lawsuit against me, and others, sort of claiming that I, Tim Bolen, had been hired by world acclaimed author, and health humanitarian, Hulda Regehr Clark PhD to defame him, and that others conspired to help me.

Don't laugh too long.  They actually wrote this nonsense down.

The trouble is that, of course, Stephen Barrett, et al, had no case against any of us, so they NEVER tried to bring it into the Courtroom, offering, as it were ,just about every lame excuse they could find to delay, delay, delay.  All the while, of course, Barrett claimed on his quackwatch website, and Polevoy on his healthwatcher site, that they were, in fact, suing me, blah, blah, blah.

What I found amusing, right from the start, was when we demanded of Barrett and Grell that they produce documents where any of the Defendants actually made statements in the accusation reflected below - they could not provide any.  None. 

So, after eight years and four months, on March 23, 2009, the latest Judge in the case, Stephen Dombrink, Judge of the Superior Court, Alameda County, ordered the case Dismissed. MORE

Court Demands Quackbusters Pay $491k - Two Pay, One Doesn't ...

February 20th, 2008 - Way back in the year 2001, when Quackbusters Stephen Barrett, Terry Polevoy, and their attorney Christopher Grell decided to file their cockamamie lawsuit (Barrett v. Clark) in Oakland, CA Superior Court, they brandished it on the internet as their crowning activity.  Little did they know, then, that it would NOT be just one more stumbling, bumbling, fumbling, act, typical of their machinations. 

In fact, this lawsuit would lead them to laughable internet infamy, drawing the wrath of virtually every internet giant, worldwide, in opposition to their goals.   Nor did they deduce, then, that filing a false claim in California, called a SLAPP suit, would gain them the wrath of the California legislature.  But it did.

Now, of course, after almost seven years of litigation, they do know, and they found out the hard way.  Now, of course, as anyone knows, the piper needs to be paid, and the bill has been presented in the form of a decision by the Oakland Superior Court ordering the threesome to pay $434,000 US more than the $55,700 already collected, to just one of the original Defendants, Ilena Rosenthal, and her attorneys.  MORE

Gerson Documentary Humiliates Quackbusters

May 21st, 2007 - I almost spilled my cup of jasmine tea,  I was laughing so hard.

I had just been viewing the first part of a DVD video documentary called "Dying to Have Known," and  I had to stop the thing right there, and rewind, to see if what I had just seen really had happened.  Yup, it did. 

So I stopped it again, went and got my wife Jan and said "You've got to come and watch this."  It's worth re-playing again and again.  MORE

Court Orders Quackbusters Barrett and Polevoy to Post $433,715.93 Bond...

May 2nd, 2007 - The "quackbuster" organization is learning a very HARD lesson about the reality of the US legal system.  And, I'm very pleased. 

They're learning, in the most humiliating, and financially devastating way, that US Courts don't want the system abused to harass those that the "quackbusters" don't like. 

In the Barrett v. Clark case, today, an order was issued for Plaintiffs Terry Polevoy MD, and Stephen Barrett MD, to come up with a grand total of $433,715.93 in bonds - $264,311.68 for Polevoy alone, and $169,404.25 from Barret and Polevoy - within thirty days. Barrett runs the questionable website "quackwatch.com."  Polevoy is kind of the Canadian low-budget copy of Barrett, with garish colors.   MORE

Quackbuster Attorney "Suffers the Consequences"...

April 8th, 2007 - The US "quackbuster" operation, perhaps one of the slimiest groups on Planet Earth, sank to a new low this last few weeks when they, apparently, abandoned their own attorney, Christopher Grell, leaving him, perhaps, in financial, and professional ruin.

Why EVERY US Health Practitioner Needs to Use ABC Codes RIGHT NOW...

February 27th, 2007 -Every practitioner in the United States knows that the current US Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS) billing code system doesn't work.  A whole industry has sprung up around the simple fact that it doesn't work, trying desperately to keep practitioners out of trouble when they attempt to wend their way through the billing miasma.

And, a miasma it is. MORE

Quackwatch "Defamation" Verdicts Could Reach Many Tens of Millions of US Dollars...

February 3rd, 2007 - Delicensed MD Stephen Barrett, of quackwatch.com infamy, announced to his followers (Barrett's Parrots) last week that: "During the next few days, my sites will be changing servers. It's possible that the healthfraud list will be disrupted during the switch."

Barrett critics are concerned about this situation - for several reasons.  The questions are: (1)  Is Barrett moving his quackwatch.com, etc., servers out of reach of the US Court System after recent Courtroom losses?   (2) Is Barrett moving his quackwatch.com, etc., servers out of reach of the US Court System after the  barrage of newly files legal actions naming him, and his, as the Defendants? (3)   Is Barrett moving his servers out of US Court Jurisdiction to avoid answering legal demands for "discovery" of information on his websites? MORE

California Legislature Votes to Kill the Health Insurance Industry....

November 26th, 2006 - There is a war on in the United States over health care.  On one side is the "status quo" represented by the medical monopoly, the pharmaceutical industry, the health insurance carriers, and an entrenched bureauracracy wholly beholden to, and run by, the people they are supposed to regulate. 

The US system, according to the World Health Organization, is rated 72nd in quality, but number one in cost, worldwide.  The "Death by Medicine" study shows that the system itself is the number one killer of Americans.  The number two and three killers of Americans are heart disease and cancer, diseases which those of us outside of the "status quo" know are curable, and preventable - but those cures and preventive treatments are being suppressed by agents of the "status quo."

Quackbusters CRUSHED by California Supreme Court...

November 23rd, 2006 - II don't know how the "quackbusters"  can even come out in public any more.  Their constant humiliation in the US Court system has got to be incredibly embarrassing.  I don't know how they can withstand the solid stream of laughter from the general public.

It's not just the losses in Court (and they are legion), it's how badly they lose, and the criticism they draw on themselves by the participants in the Court system.  They just don't seem to learn.

Yesterday, November 20th, 2006,  the California Supreme Court voted unanimously (all seven Justices) to slap down the latest "quackbuster"  attempt to use, and abuse, the US Court system to silence their critics.  The case, originally known as Barrett v. Clark, then for the appeals process renamed Barrett v. Rosenthal, began over five years ago when three individuals decided to sue "a room full of people."  MORE

Why Corretta Scott King went to a Mexican Clinic...

February 23rd, 2006 - There is no question that the extremely profitable US cancer industry provides absolutely ZERO hope, for US patients, against cancer.  I don't think there is anybody in the US that believes the absolute drivel promoted by the American Cancer Society (ACS), a group that has come, not to represent "the fight against cancer," but more as a "spokesperson for the rip-off cancer industry."

A few months ago the American Cancer Society publicly whined that they had done a survey and found out that about half of the American public believed that there really were cancer cures available and that those cures were being suppressed by the industry because the non-cures were so profitable...

Well, I hate to be rude here, but, in street language, I'd have to say about this "no shit, Sherlock.."  What surprises me is that only about half of the US has figured that out. MORE

Washington Dental School Under Assault for  "Mercury Poisoning"...

February 23rd, 2006 -  Pierce College of Dentistry hired Dental Hygienist Laurie Pruett, over ten years ago, to assist the school in its teaching of the practice of Dentistry.  What they "forgot" to tell her, according to court records, is that she would be handling mercury amalgam fillings, and those mercury fillings were toxic, giving of constant noxious gases, which would, eventually, result in consequential health problems.

Ten years later, of course, Laurie Pruett began to show the symptoms of mercury poisoning.  It wasn't long before those symptoms affected her work, and her daily routine.  When Pruett sought medical attention she was amazed to find out what competent Medical Doctors knew all along - that working in a "mercury" environment was hazardous to your health - and that adequate safeguards needed to be in place - facts that Pierce College of Dentistry pooh-poohed, again and again, according to court records.

 Pruett, loyal to her employer, went to her superiors, and explained the situation.  Pierce College responded by firing her.  MORE

Americans Flee to India, and Elsewhere, for Better Health Care...

January 7th, 2006 - According to the newspaper "Times of India," 150,000 people, mostly from the United States, went to India last year for Medical care.  Called "medical tourism" the numbers are growing at 15% per annum and by 2012, that "medical tourism"  is expected to generate $2.3 billion annually in India. As one representative of an Indian Hospital,  Anne Marie Moncure, MD, of Indraprastha Apollo Hospital, says, "Every year, 98,000 patients die in US hospitals due to medical negligence and three to four times that number are left permanently-disabled."

US Supreme Court May Fatally Bludgeon Hospitals...

December 23rd, 2005 - The United States Medical Care system, rated a poor seventy-second (72nd), worldwide, has been teetering on the brink of destruction for years now.  Greed, malfeasance, misfeasance, grand corruption, murderous intent, and a self-centeredness unequaled in history has led the system to the abyss.

Give me a hand - let's push it the last few inches over the edge...

That same "United States Medical Care system, rated a poor seventy-second (72nd), worldwide," is rated number one in another category - IT IS THE NUMBER ONE KILLER OF AMERICANS.  Above heart disease, cancer and stroke, the medical system, itself, is responsible for the unnecessary deaths of 783,936 Americans EVERY YEAR.

"Health Freedom Wins" Increase Worldwide...

November 28th, 2005  - "Health Freedom" is winning everywhere.  Everywhere, that is, where strategy and tactical teams have taken the time to organize, make a plan, execute the plan, etc.  Winning against "Big Pharma," and their sleazy minions, is becoming embarrassingly easy.

"Big Pharma" is losing.  The New York Times reports:

TRENTON, N.J. -- Embattled drugmaker Merck & Co. said today that it will cut about 7,000 jobs, or 11 percent of its work force, and will close or sell five of its 31 manufacturing plants by the end of 2008 in the first phase of a reorganization strategy meant save up to $4 billion by the end of the decade.

More about - Quackbuster Barrett BROKEN in "Home Town" Court...

October 15th, 2005 - Below is an interesting Press Release sent to top "quackbuster"  Stephen Barrett, the author of the dubious website, "quackwatch.org's" local newspaper.  But before I let you see that, I want to explain what happened in this case.

In short - Stephen Barrett's claims that I, Tim Bolen, and those people re-posting, or quoting my articles, allegedly having "defamed" him, have now been thoroughly examined in a Court of Law - and Barrett's claims, within that Court of Law, in his own home town of Allentown, Pennsylvania - a Court of Barrett's own choice, have been determined to have no merit.

Suing Captain Screwloose - Why It's Taking So Long...

Because it isn't really about Stephen Barrett.

November 23rd, 2014 - The most often asked question I get from my readers is "Why is the Doctor's Data v Barrett case taking so long?"  Well, that's a good question and I will anwser that for you right here, and right now.  I want you to know that I, Tim Bolen, am VERY HAPPY with how long it is taking because there is a lot happening behind the scenes, so to speak, that works for us in very big ways.

When you are going after the situation that de-licensed Stephen Barrett represents you have to think like a Drug Enforcement Agency team.  Picking off the street-corner dealers isn't going to solve the problem.  You have to nab the network, and that takes a lot more work.

it is true that one of the biggest concerns my readers voice to me is the length of time that has passed in the smacking-down of Barrett.  Why?  Because his work is still right there on the internet.  All I can say is "be patient, we need to pick up ALL of the marbles."

And that we are.

There is stuff I don't talk about going on.  Why?  It is in progress, and those things take a while to complete.

Then too, in this problem, Barrett is little more than your average street corner drug dealer.  I have, for some time, been of the opinion that he, Barrett, has little, or nothing, to do with the activities of Quackwatch and the other twenty-one websites.  Barrett, to me, is a construction,  He is the frontispiece.  In fact, as I've said before, Barrett is a codpiece.

A Codpiece?  What's that?  MORE

The Anju Usman MD Victory Story...

Another Nail in Stephen Barrett's Coffin - It Wasn't a Good Idea To Pick On One of the Autism Community's Favorite Doctors...

November 2nd, 2014 - O.K. people - it is time to GLOAT again.  Get on the internet, find a sleazy "skeptic," drag out your favorite way to rub someone's nose in something icky, and deliver this article, and all of its strong points, and wait for the explosion.  It will be worth the wait.  You'll be able to FEEL the rise in blood pressure of your target.  The first response will be DENIAL, then will come an attack on me, Tim Bolen, personally, claiming I am "not reliable," blah, blah, blah...

But, you can start smiling in anticipation right now...

The courtroom attack, by the social filthies,  on Anju Usman MD is over.  On October 2nd, 2014, attorneys for James Coman, in Chicago, Illinois Voluntarily Dismissed the civil case against Usman. Why did they do that?  Well, sit back and I'll tell you what happened.  I am going to move that beginning smile of yours over to a full-fledged grin - unless of course you are a "skeptic."  Then, I will enrage you.  MORE

What Russian Media Says About Ebola...

They say it is "Made in America..."

Note from Tim Bolen:  When I was a kid our teachers used to tell us that all Russians had was "controlled media," and all the Russians got to read was propaganda put out by their government.  We, in the US, started something called "Radio Free Europe," so we could tell the Russian people what was really going on in the world.

These days, it is America that has the "controlled media,"  so why not see what the Russians, who have now thrown off communism, say about what's going on in the US?

There are two BIG Russian media - Pravda and Russian TV (RT).  So let's, first, look at Pravda's take on Ebola...

Opinion by Consumer Advocate  Tim Bolen 

October 19th, 2014 - Just below you can find way much more information about Ebola and its precursors that you will EVER find in US Mainstream Media.  From the article:

Hear This Well...

September 10th, 2014 - We don't see as many of those annoying drug ads on TV anymore because, simply, their patents ran out and all of those drugs became available in "generic" form at a tenth of the price.  For a while the drug industry was in a panic, but then they came up with a new idea - that, for now, is working very well.

The idea that the drug industry in the US could, after their big patents ran out in 2012 and 2013, shift their profit center to an increased childhood vaccine schedule, with NO legal liability (they can’t be sued), using, what are supposed to be OUR “watchdog” groups; Federal, State, and local governments, as their marketing tool, is at best absurd...

But, that's what we have, and...  MORE

More Revelations From CDC Whistleblower... 

This Time on Thimerasol in Vaccines For Pregnant Women...

August 27th, 2014 - Things are coming to a head quickly in the Autism world.

Below is a link to a video with comments by Dr. William Thompson, a United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Whistleblower, on Thimerosal. Among his comments, in addition to the inappropriateness of routinely giving Thimerosal-containing vaccines to pregnant women, is that "There is biological plausibility to say right now that thimerosal causes autism-like features.

It is one more video put out by my friends Andy Wakefield and Brian Hooker.  This one is even shorter than the first one at one minute two seconds.  It is titled "CDC Whistleblower on Thimersal in Pregnant Women."  Go watch it now, please, and we'll talk about it.

There are two very important points to consider:  (1)  The CDC, once again, knows very well how dangerous Thimerosal is in vaccines, and (2)  The Whistleblower Dr. William Thompson, is an active participant in the problem solution, now, and is giving advice to Brian Hooker PhD on how to use the information.

Very important points... MORE

Big Shakeup...

The Autism Community is Re-Forming?...

June 15th, 2014 - This is the 13th article in a series focusing on the fact that Autism is a social issue that could have been, and should have been, solved a long time ago. 

I'd heard about " the backstabbing" among Autism Leaders.   I'd even seen a few examples, and I wrote about them, creating, with Jake Crosby, a huge argument in the Autism world. 

It was like I set off a bomb. 

Mind Boggling...

I wrote a whole series, you'll find in the column on the right, about why Autism is still with us - and I wasn't blaming Big Pharma, or the CDC.  I was pointing right at the so-called organized autism community - pointing out the obvious.  I said, in an earlier article:  MORE

Federal Court Allows Doctor's Data's Third Amended Complaint Against Barrett, Quackwatch,  and Co-Conspirators...

It is going to be a Very Happy New Year...

December 28th, 2013 - I've been holding onto this article for a while so as to not disturb the happy holidays with thoughts about the scum and filth that inhabit our US health care system, attacking everything that competes with drugs, drugs, drugs, and more drugs.  But, Thanksgiving and Christmas are now behind us.  The turkey is gone, the family units are back in their own nests, and its time to catch up.

De-licensed MD, Stephen Barrett, with his group of hateful, sleazy, websites (Quackwatch, etc.), coupled with the activities of the "skeptics" who have banded together to propel Barrett's gangrenous articles to the top of Search Engines like Google, have had a long, free run - so far.  But it is all coming to an end, and that end is going to be VERY costly to the perpetrators - tens of millions of dollars, I predict, in court judgments alone. MORE

For Quackbusters - The End is Near...

Barrett, and Company, are Loading the Submarine and Heading For Argentina...

October 3rd, 2013 - Where we left off in the Doctor's Data v Barrett Federal Court case saga was the point where Doctor's Data had asked for a  formal Protective Order to keep it's Expert Witnesses from being attacked by Barrett, and his minions. I had written two different articles on that subject:

Doctor's Data Asks Court for "Protective Order"...  They want to keep their "Expert Witnesses" Alive and Well... 8/7/13

You Can Smell Barrett's Fear...  Why?  Doctor's Data's "Expert Witnesses" Are REAL...  8/15/13

But something far worse has happened to Barrett, and company.  You are about to read about it.  MORE

An Exemplum - Top Skeptic Brian Dunning Federally Indicted for FRAUD...

This "Skeptoid" will not pass "Go" and is going directly to Jail...

August 28th,  2013 - I have several "skeptic" stories coming up.  Most of them involve charges being hurled around, and at, top skeptic leadership of rape and sexual harassment - none of which surprises me.  They did what they did in Australia, didn't they?

Every time I tell another skeptic story, it seems, another facet of their combined persona is revealed.  This one on Brian Dunning is just one of those.

Before this story though, if I had to pick one phrase to describe skeptics in general, I would have picked "filth encrusted."  But now I see they are much more than that.  Silly me to underrate them. MORE

Doctor's Data Asks Court for "Protective Order"...

They want to keep their "Expert Witnesses" Alive and Well...

August 7th, 2013 - As you might suspect, things are going VERY BADLY for Stephen Barrett, and the other Defendants, in the Doctor's Data v Barrett Federal Court case.  Go ahead and smile.

In fact - Grin.

However, as you might also suspect, there is growing concern that Barrett's masters and minions, desperate as they are, might fall back on the kind of tactics the "skeptics" employed against Meryl Dorey and the Australian Vaccination Network (AVN).  There, you will remember, the "skeptics" were caught calling Dorey's home telephone with death threats - in fact, "death by fire," death threats.  Then too, violent pornography was sent to her in the mail.

You can read about those "rape, mutilation and death threats against Meryl Dorey," by clicking on the blue words.

Of course, all of my long-time readers, will remember the fact that in the early days of this case, the "skeptics" lowlifes tried their very best to destroy Doctor's Data's business with an organized "Googlebomb."  I wrote about that in an article called "Quackpots in a Tizzy Over Barrett Getting Sued...  7/9/10."  I said:

"What "Orac" was doing was soliciting MALICE - and he was successful.  The kiss-ups went to work organizing what's called a "Googlebomb" insuring that their totally libelous version of Doctor's Data, and their version alone, dominated the internet search engines.

WHOA!  Enter the bank robber from stage left...

Stupid?  You bet.  Legal "Malice" is just about indefensible in Court, and comes with the penalty, in virtually every jurisdiction in the US, of bringing on massive punitive damages without having to prove any damages in the first place.  The punitive damages are applied JUST BECAUSE  there was Legal Malice.  Like this:

"Malice - A desire to harm others or to see others suffer: despitefulness, ill will, malevolence, maliciousness, malignancy, malignity, meanness, nastiness, poisonousness, spite, spitefulness, venomousness, viciousness. See attitude/good attitude/bad attitude/neutral attitude."

"Malice, to most people, is a nasty feeling of wanting to hurt another person.  What many people do not know is that if malicious action is taken against one party, the other party has the civil right to bring a lawsuit.  This is called legal malice, or one party’s intent to cause harm to another party.  What is important to note here is that malice is the intention of causing harm.  Criminal offenses of causing actual harm to another party is separate from legal malice.  It is important, also, to determine whether the malice is expressed or implied.  In expressed malice, one party gives an outward indication of the intention to cause harm to another party.  This may include an oral statement or printed statement.  Implied then, is the implied intention of harm in a killing or harming of another party. "

Frankly, the word "malice" sums up the entire "skeptic" operation.  There isn't anything else.  Nothing.

So, what's happening here?

Doctor's Data, knowing how Barrett, and company, operate, are simply asking the Court to officially protect their "Expert Witnesses."   Below you will find the Motion, in its entirety, except for the footnotes and signatures.  MORE

Autism Leaders Don't Like Being Criticized...

For the first time in their history they have banded together to do something...

July 8th, 2013 - And it was to tell me, Tim Bolen, how angry they are with me.  Blah, blah, blah...

Well, it's a start.  Maybe next they'll buy a book on planning, or something. Then maybe one or two might even read that book.  Maybe not.  You can't be sure with these people.  Unless there's a photo or a TV appearance opportunity.

Then they will be RIGHT THERE.

It took FIVE articles about how useless they were to finally get them to react.  It was like trying to get a teenager off the couch to go mow the lawn. And boy did they get angry - emailing me, writing articles for FaceBook, and Age of Autism about how evil Tim Bolen is.  It was a Pity Party of the first order. 

Self pity pouring out like candy out of a broken piñata. 

But, nowhere in their diatribe was even the beginnings of a plan to solve the Autism problem.  Not even a mention.  They especially never mentioned what I am about to reveal at the bottom of this article.

But it was a great opportunity for me to get in their faces via those emails.  Their anger POURED out, and when you read their missives, the self-centeredness, the me-me-me focus, comes at you like a train in a tunnel.

What is really interesting is that the bird-brained Canary Party, after being invited to participate in the Health Freedom Congress (at my recommendation and invitation - and I rue the day I did that), saw how large, vibrant, friendly, and organized Health Freedom people were, and changed their Canary Party description from "Autism" to "Health Freedom" - just like that.  Wasn't that special?

More, the Canary Party, which is hiding their tax records from me, claims to be a PAC, rather than a non-profit 501(C)4.  There are none of the required filings anywhere I could find - and I know where to look.  They got invited, this last session Health Freedom Congress, as all of the delegates were, to pick a workshop to attend - and they picked the "mandatory vaccine workshop," a subject none of them, I think had ever heard of before.  There they met with a group of groups of State Health Freedom leaders, and for the very first time, I suspect, learned how to do to something other than pose for a photo.  MORE

The "Skeptics," An Organized "Hate Group," Will Hold Their Annual Meeting in Las Vegas in July...

The South Point Hotel Will Have to Burn the Sheets After They're Gone.

June 9th,  2013 - In case you haven't noticed I'm not exactly known to be "PC."  Sorry about that... 

Actually, I'm not sorry at all.  Somebody has to say something about the ABSURDITY of a group of angry male homosexuals calling themselves skeptics (I call them homoskeptuals), setting themselves up as the MORAL COMPASS  for anything - churches in general, Christianity, Judaism, family values, moral code, life-style, etc.

And certainly there is no qualification for mentally and physically pint-sized James Randi, who you can listen to an audio recording of soliciting sex from a young boy, to criticize anything what-so-ever.

Although their projected attendance numbers at their "Amazing Meeting" are WAY down over previous years, due probably to sexual discrimination problems against women, voiced by previous attendees, their intended mission seems to be intact - that of training new "volunteers," during a six part workshop series,  to re-focus their hatred of a heterosexual world, against targets selected by the SECRET funders of the "skeptic" movement.

And what, you may ask, are those selected targets?  Anybody who questions vaccines, practices Alternative Medicine, suggests that the US conventional medical model is flawed, is a parent of an Autistic child looking for solutions, etc.  All become victims of the organized repulsive tirade.

And who, you may ask, SECRETLY funds these projects?  Well, go ahead and guess.  Just ask the question "who gains?"  Then ask the question "Who would give the skeptics NINE MILLION DOLLARS A YEAR IN SECRET FUNDING?"  MORE

Federal Court Forces Barrett  Deposition... 

What Fun Life Can Be...

February 4th, 2013 - In September of 2010 I wrote an article about why the Doctor's Data v Barrett Federal Court case was so important to America.  Just below is an excerpt of that article:

"Why the Doctor's Data v Barrett case is important to North America...

The US health care system is in tatters.  It is total crap, run by crooks and idiots, who on their best day, either by design, or stupidity, cannot find any solutions.  The "War on Cancer" has been running almost 39 years - and we are not even close to official answers - because the "war" is intentionally designed to fail.

The US health care system, itself, is the number one killer of Americans. Health problems that could, and should, have been solved years ago, like autism, diabetes and heart disease tear our society apart.

Why is this happening?  Because the system generates way too much money the way it is.  No one within the system wants change.  And, "the system" has built in defense mechanisms designed to kill threats to itself.

One of those built in mechanisms is the "quackbuster" operation, a cleverly designed process whereby virtually any treatment, lab test, device, author, practitioner, or idea that is outside of the current US health care "status quo" gets systematically rolled in excrement, so to speak, and publicly held up to ridicule by a mostly hidden group.  The flagship for this operation is Quackwatch.com and its aging, bitter, loser, Stephen Barrett.

But there is much more to the "quackbuster" operation than Barrett.  Why do I say that?  Because, although Barrett intentionally publicly paints his enemies with sewage, no one would care what this rabid old fart has to say if his material never floated to the top of search engines.  But it does - and it is not by accident.

In short, Obamacare, nor any other current health care solution, on the table, proposed by the "thinkers,"  is going to help North Americans for one simple reason.  The proposed solutions fail, at first, to identify the real problems of North American Health Care - and that problem is that we are on a maintenance of symptom system rather than a cure system.  In short, Cancer, Heart Disease, Diabetes, Stroke, Autism, Cerebral Palsy, and more can all be beaten right now with existing science and technology - but all of that science and technology is blocked, and its proponents intentionally smeared in the public's eye.

But then, something happened that could change all that.  Someone had enough.  That "someone" is a laboratory called Doctor's Data, that, in essence, did one simple thing - they took the leash off their junkyard dogs (their attorneys - Augustine, Kern, and Levens) and let them go do what they are supposed to do - bite an unwanted intruder."

And now, we're getting down to the nitty-gritty.  After every effort to lock, block, block, delay, delay, delay, on Barrett's part, the actual Courtroom Trial is looming.

Barrett is terrible in a courtroom situation, and the attorney he picked Michael K. Botts, is, to me, a joke - one we, on this side of the argument, can enjoy time-after-time.

So, this is all going to be a hoot.

And, I'll make sure you all have a front row seat.  MORE

Geiers v Maryland - Let the Lawsuits Begin...

Geier Family Sues Sleazy Investigator, Prosecutor, and Corrupt/Inept Maryland Board of Physicians

December 26th,  2012 - It's time for a laugh.

On Friday, December 21st, 2012, according to the Mayan calendar, the world was going to end.  But, when we all woke up the morning of the 22nd, the world was, and is, still here.  Perhaps there was an error, or maybe even a misunderstanding about that date.

Or, maybe the Mayans were referring to the Maryland Board of Physicians and their stumbling cronies, who, after all, fully believe that THEY are a world unto themselves.  Maybe the Mayans, a society that had far reaching understanding of the celestial picture, were, perhaps, speaking rhetorically.

Of course the Mayans never heard of the Maryland Board of Physicians, but, what the heck, I've been watching the Keystone Kop antics of the Maryland Board for almost two years.  Observing them, as it were, heading down their own path of destruction - the end of their own world; not only at the hands of the Maryland legislature, but now, soon enough, at the hands of the Maryland Court System.

In short, as like what happened to the California medical Board, and the Texas Medical Board, there will be no survival, neither for the Maryland Board nor its members and cronies.  It's time for them to pay the piper.

One certain reality is that, despite the best efforts of the Maryland Board and its apparatus, including the full-on efforts of its crackpot Prosecutor Victoria Pepper, to destroy, in its entirety, the Geier family, using the Maryland Board administrative system - it didn't happen.  And now, the Geiers have entered into the Maryland Court system, evidence of legal malice in hand, and the counter-attack has begun.

On December 21st, 2012, Mark, Ann, and David Geier fired their first legal salvo at the Maryland Board bureaucracy in the Montgomery County, Maryland Circuit Court, charging, for this suit alone (there are more coming), that the Defendants (1) intentionally violated their federal civil rights (pursuant to 28 USC § 1983),  (2) Violated the Maryland Confidentially of Medical Records Act, (3)  Publicity of Private Facts.

The suit stems from the Board's actions on January 25th, 2012 where they issued an illegal public  "Cease and Desist" Order, falsely claiming that Mark Geier MD had been "practicing medicine without a license," where Geier supposedly
renewed prescriptions for himself, his wife, and his son.  The Board, in violation of federal and state laws, had published both the medical conditions of the Geiers, and the names, and indications, of the prescriptions.

After the Geiers' Maryland attorney advised the Board of its illegal actions, the Board claimed that it pulled its complaint down from it s website, removed, the medical information, and Amended the Order.  But not before it had issued the original story to local news (ABC News) and to the "skeptics," whose angry network used the story to damage the Geiers' reputation.  More, the Board never actually took the false complaint, with the medical information intact, down from their site.

One VERY interesting point emphasized in this lawsuit is the extent of the "Get the Geiers" mentality put forth by the Maryland Board in that during that process the Board completely ignored eight hundred (800) legitimate complaints filed by consumers against Maryland physicians, spending all of their time, energy, funds, and external resources, focusing on the Geiers.  More, their "Get the Geiers" attempt somewhat fizzled.  The Geiers are alive and well, doing what they do.  MORE

Huge Internal Fight in Autism Community...

It's No Wonder Autism is Still With Us...

December 3rd, 2012 - Autism - It's the elephant in the room, that some say is so large, and so encompassing, that no one in authority even wants to hear about it much less deal with it.

On November 29th, 2012 at 2:00 PM in the Rayburn Building in Washington DC the Congressional Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, chaired, now, by Darrell lssa, Republican from California, held another hearing on Autism - the first in ten years. 

And, it was a farce.  

I watched the whole thing on C-Span while it happened.  I advise you to do the same.

Dan Olmstead, over at Age of Autism, wrote a good piece, although short, on the hearing called "Landmark Autism Hearing: "The Troops Have Landed on Normandy Beach."  Jump over and read it right now.

Dan makes good points about some of the good things about the hearing.  But Dan lives in the conflict.  He runs things over at Age of Autism - and does a very good job of it.  Let's look at the thing from over here on the periphery, where we can see the whole picture.  When we do that something very ugly emerges.

Very ugly.

Let's start with who it was that the Congressional committee SELECTED to represent what they see as Autism.  There were six speakers picked by the committee to "represent" Autism, half of which claimed to represent the Asperger Syndrome portion of the Autism Spectrum, indicating to any member of the public, or of Congress, watching, that Aspergers was, in fact, what Autism was all about. 

Worse - The version of Aspergers depicted was absolutely despicable.

The Last non-government  Speaker - The person who had the FINAL WORD from the Autism speakers was sneering, greasy-faced, Rolex watch flashing, Ari Ne'eman, supposedly the president of the Autistic Self Advocacy Network who, to me, is a total goofball, and needs to be exposed for it.  Investment Analyst John Best writes in his blog "Debunking Neurodiversity and Ari Ne'eman" about Ne'eman, clearly, and concisely.

Poul Thorsen -  Makes US "Top Ten Most Wanted" List

November 4th,  2012 - The "Danish Study" has been used as the foundation of the vaccine industry's claim that "there is no relationship between vaccines and Autism."

But, its author, Danish researcher Poul Thorson, last year, was indicted for fraud over the study, and an arrest warrant was issued Thorsen is now in hiding.

It is common knowledge that the pharmaceutical industry promotes a severely increased vaccine schedule, not only for children, but for everyone, sometimes even, trying for laws making vaccines mandatory.  Why?  Because most of their major drug patents are running out, so the massive flow of money is slowing to a trickle.  More vaccines seem to be the profitable answer. 

But, as everyone is also realizing, with the increased schedule came a comparable wave of significant health problems.  One in six children since the increase, now have neurological issues.  One in eighty-eight children now have Autism.

But the vaccine construction, a combination of the vaccine industry, and the federal and state bureaucratic entity that supports it, rail against any suggestion that vaccines are responsible.   That conflict, between parents of these children and their networks and the vaccine construction, rages across not just the US, but all over Planet Earth.

So, what exactly is the "Danish Study?"

In the year 2000 the lid was blown off the argument when a transcript of a secret vaccine construction meeting at Simpsonwood was released to the public.  The Simpsonwood meeting documents show, very clearly, that the vaccine construction knew about the problems of Thimerosal, the preservative in vaccines, and decided on a policy of covering up that information.  Their reasons?  They said that if people knew about those problems they would not vaccinate their children because they would lose confidence in the vaccine industry.  So, the vaccine construction had the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) organize some studies on the Thimerosal issue.  The CDC used a Danish researcher named Poul Thorsen to assemble, hire researchers, and monitor a study, since called the "Danish Study," on this subject- which has, since, become, itself, a huge controversy.

Once again - The "Danish Study" has been used as the foundation of the vaccine industry's claim that "there is no relationship between vaccines and Autism."

Let's make a few things very clear - The world-wide vaccine industry's ENTIRE safety argument regarding Thimerosal (mercury), as a preservative in vaccines, rests on the validity of this one "Danish Study."  Danish researcher Poul Thorson was the rainmaker, and organizer of that study, and the study right after that.  The US Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) was the funder.  The CDC actually funded five separate studies - each succeeding study building on the first "Danish Study," depending on the "Danish Study's" validity.

And that's the problem.  A recent US federal court indictment of Poulsen shows that Poulsen diverted two million out of the total eight million dollars of the "Danish Study" funding elsewhere - one million to himself, and the other million has not yet been found. 

This, of course, throws a pall on the study itself, and the institutions and researchers involved.  More, it brings in the question of supervision of the study by the funding agency the CDC.  Why?  Because the CDC did not find the money diversion.  Someone else did.  More, the question needs to be asked "Did people at the CDC get the other million that disappeared?"  Why do I ask that question?  Keep reading and you'll soon see why.

There is a huge scandal here... MORE

Autism World - The  Upcoming Mark Geier Appeal...

Part One -  What's at Stake Here?

October 19th,  2012 - Court cases can drag on forever.  That's just their nature.  There are several US cases going on right now that are significant to the Autism World, one of which is the Mark Geier versus the Maryland Medical Board, a case which is simply waiting out the required timing to be filed in a real court.  Since the Autism World situation is without doubt, a microcosm of what is happening in US, and world, health care, the case is also of importance to the North American Health Freedom Movement.

In the Geier case the completely corrupt Maryland Medical Board went through a lengthy, required, Administrative Procedure, dragging out the process as long a they could, and used the process rules to issue ONLY their version of what was really going on.  They wrote their documents to make the Geiers, father and son, look like criminals, fools, dolts, monsters, etc.  Of major importance here is that the Board documents, were released to the public through their relationship with the "skeptics," the online hate group responsible for the recent rape, mutilation, and death threats against Meryl Dorey, one of the leaders of the Australian Vaccine Network (AVN).

Other cases I am monitoring, and explaining the importance of to my readers, are the Doctor's Data v Barrett federal court case, the Texas Medical Board v Jesus Caquias MD case, and, of course, the Andrew Wakefield v Brian Deer case in Texas.  I have some others I will bring to your attention.  In summary, though, I am very pleased with their focus and progress.

But today, lets focus on the upcoming Mark Geier versus the Maryland Medical Board case.  Why?  Because the issues involved in it are of utmost importance to the Autism community, and their interests.  The Autism community has formally decided that it will protect those health practitioners that try to find solutions for them - as they are doing in the Andy Wakefield case, and more.

In short, different practitioners, like Wakefield, Geier, Usman, Rossignol, Caquias, have come under fire from the organized Vaccine Construction because of one simple reason.  They identify specific Autism problems, and identify specific Autism solutions.  Officialdom has proclaimed that "we don't know why this is happening, so there are NO solutions."  And, they stay with that nonsense.  More, they try to enforce that position with activities detrimental to those practitioners - like using regulatory agencies (Medical Boards in the US and Britain, federal agencies,)  media assaults from Quackwatch, the "skeptics," and once great, but now skanky, news outlets like the Chicago Tribune.

There is a whole massive attack planned against the Maryland Medical Board - and frankly, they will not survive what's coming.  The Maryland Board is going to go the way that Texas just went (total defeat and reconstruction), and the way California went years ago.  Mark my words. MORE

Doctor's Data v Barrett Case  - The Discovery Dam Has Been Burst...

Part Three:  Just when you think it couldn't get any better...  It does.

September 13th, 2012 - OH BOY!  There is an even BETTER development in the Doctor's Data v Barrett federal court case.

I had to force myself to stop laughing and mentally outline this article.

It seems, that in the middle of the judge's Order to Compel, starting with the second sentence, there is an entirely new opportunity.  I've highlighted the important part for today.  What this is saying, in laymen's language, is "if you have any documents that you believe should be withheld due to actual "privilege," make a list of them, describing them, and write down why you think they should be "privileged."  Then we will look at them and make a determination."  

Motion hearing held. Plaintiffs motion to compel pertaining to privilege issues [131] is granted. Defendant is ordered to confirm by the end of today whether it has redacted any documents on the basis of a privilege claim. Any documents redacted on that basis must be identified on a privilege log to be provided to Plaintiff by 9/12/12. Defendant is directed to produce un-redacted versions of documents redacted on the basis of relevance to Plaintiff by 9/12/2012. With respect to documents withheld on the basis of a common interest privilege, the parties are granted leave to file submissions, by 9/12/12, addressing the application of that privilege to any documents withheld by Defendant on the basis of a common interest privilege claim.  Plaintiffs motion to compel pertaining to financial documents [141] remains under advisement pending further consultation between the parties, as discussed in court. Status hearing set for 9/19/2012 at 9:00 a.m.

Well, as you can imagine, Barrett, et al, came up with a list of twenty-nine (29) communications they are absolutely certain should be withheld.  What were they?  Below I will show you a chart copied from the Defendant's attorney.  But, in short, they are personal communications between Stephen Barrett and bobbie baratz (Robert S. Baratz MD, DDS, PhD) regarding the case.  The documents very clearly discuss the strategy they intend to employ.

Their claim to "privilege?"  A situation called "common interest privilege," a subcategory of "attorney-client privilege."  If you want details of both - click here.

In short - their claims are LUDICROUS.  All they have done is to call attention to the IMPORTANCE of the twenty-nine (29) documents that they will, after the judge reads their asinine arguments, be forced to turn over to Doctor's Data's attorneys.

"Attorney-client privilege," and hence, "common interest privilege," are reserved for communications between attorneys and their clients, or between attorneys and attorneys in the case - NOT EVER for communications between Defendants.  MORE

Maryland Board - Eight Minutes, Fourteen Seconds...

August 29th,  2012 - Every entity develops a personality, and a life, of its own.  Public agencies are no exception.  Sometimes an entity develops so negatively that there is simply no point in saving it.  There is virtually nothing worth keeping.  The Maryland Board of Physicians is one of those entities.

The problem is that every State needs to regulate certain kinds of health professionals - specifically those that, because of their offerings, can seriously damage consumers.  But sometimes, as in the case of the Maryland Board of Physicians the seeming solution becomes worse than the problems it is there to prevent.

In the case of the Maryland Board of Physicians there has simply been an organized misuse of a public agency by an interest group, and the Maryland legislature is attempting, through a process, to rein in that group, and bring back honesty, integrity, efficiency, and common sense to a process.

Is it working?

Maybe.  Maybe not. 

What's REALLY happening in Maryland...

Let's start with a nutshell.

On May 23rd, 2012 the Maryland Board of Physicians held its regular monthly meeting divided into two parts:  Open and Closed sessions.

In Open session, during the May meeting, the Board approved the licensing of several hundred health care professionals, gave the new Executive Director a plaque from the Federation of State Medical Boards, issued a contract for services to the University of Maryland to study the Board, began the process of training Medical Board members to work faster, and began to deal with Sunset Review recommendations

Closed session, as you will see below, lasted four hours and twenty minutes (260 minutes total), and during that period the Board decided the fate of thirty four (34) licensees under its control, devoting a full eight minutes and fourteen seconds, on average, to each case.

Eight minutes and fourteen seconds.   Each.  MORE

 Maryland Board Fails - They Could Not Stop the Geiers...

The Counter Attack Begins...

July 27th,  2012 - Wednesday, July 25th, 2012, the Maryland Board of Physicians played its last card in its organized assault against Mark and David Geier.  They had their last meeting to decide the Geiers' fate, so to speak. 

But no matter what their decision is about the Geiers, it is of no importance whatsoever.  For this last act, this meeting, is the finale of the situation controlled by the Maryland Board of Physicians.  To this point members, and employees, of the Board controlled the process, and the information flow, using what is known as an Administrative Procedure.

Everything from this point on will be decided in a REAL courtroom in full view of the public - a situation that will not work well for the Board - something they have carefully, and stridently in non-public hearings, avoided.  They are, after all, under investigation themselves

The information about the activities they have been keeping from the public, including the Maryland Legislature who is investigating them for serious wrongdoing, is exemplified in the Geier case.  Now, it will all come out.

I will explain...

According to the Rules set down in Maryland the Board may publicly make any statements or accusations it wants to make, without any proof or evidence being offered.  But the Defendant is NOT allowed to publicly even suggest that the accusations are false.  The Maryland Board did just that continuously.  They did it, not just publicly, but in every venue they could find where such accusations might damage the Geiers. 

More, Maryland law says that a Physician Defendant MUST use up all of the Administrative Procedure remedies BEFORE going to a REAL court.  So, the Board delayed, and delayed, and delayed, and delayed.  It dragged out the procedure for fifteen months - and no doubt, will wait the maximum amount of time, another month, before issuing their Final Decision.

But Wednesday was the end of all that.  It was the Board's final sally forth - the end of the Administrative Procedures.  And it wasn't enough.  The Geiers are alive and quite well, and are gassing up the B-52s for the counter attack - the one in the REAL court system.

Now it will start to be fun, and I am about to tell you why..  MORE

Tension Increases - Federal Judge Orders CDC to Produce Secret Documents...

The CDC Has Known All Along How Dangerous Vaccines Are - And Has Covered It Up... (Part Six)

July 6th,  2012 - This article is the sixth in a series about THE MOST IMPORTANT COURT CASE ABOUT AUTISM currently being litigated - the Hooker v. United States Department of Health and Human Services, et al case.

Why is this the most important case? 

Because of what happened in what was called the  "Omnibus Autism Proceedings" (OAP) in 2010.

The special Vaccine Court created by the  National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA), in 1987, had become overloaded with claims about 2007, and the Special Masters running the court simply did not want to have to trudge through the backlog of the 5,400 cases facing it over vaccine injuries. 

There in 2010,  a special Vaccine Court sub-set, called the OAP, decided six test cases - three from the MMR Vaccine causes Autism argument, and three from the Thimerosal (mercury) in vaccines causes Autism argument.  Those cases were themselves, representing a backlog of the 5,400 cases, which, in turn, represented the interests of over 2,000,000 vaccine damaged children in the US.  More, those cases, if won by the Plaintiffs, would have set the stage for relief for the families of the one in six children vaccine damaged showing neurological damage.

The OAP judges relied COMPLETELY, for all six cases, on the truth and validity of the five so-called studies ordered and run by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Now you see the importance...

After reviewing Hooker's research it is easy to come to a conclusion  - EVERY one of the CDC studies showing the so-called safety of mercury in vaccines has been intentionally faked, so as to lead the American Public, and every entity worldwide that relies on the CDC for information, to believe that mercury in vaccines is safe - it is not.

The case was a setup...  MORE

James Randi Sued Over "Bogus Million Dollar Challenge"...

June 28th, 2012 - The "skeptic" operation is in deep trouble - again.

Deep trouble.

Why?  They are being sued in a Florida federal Court over their "Million Dollar Challenge."

 And, it is time for a laugh.

A BIG laugh.

On May 10th, 2012 George R. Simpson, a resident of the Hamptons, a community on the East end of Long Island, New York, filed suit (Case 0:12-cv-60817-KMW) in the United States District Court - Southern District of Florida against James Randi, DJ Grothe president of Jamrandal, James Hamilton Zwinge AKA JES Randi Educational Foundation, and the James Randi Educational Foundation.

The lawsuit charges the Defendants with:  Fraud; Misrepresentation and Breach of Contract;  Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress; Misfeasance, Malfeasance; Conspiracy (Sect 1985 and 1986); Action for Damages; and Action for Specific Performance.   MORE

Two Important Events...

June 9th,  2012 - As my readers know there has been an effort to form alliances between the North American Health Freedom movement and the Autism world.  It is succeeding.  Both the Long Beach Health Freedom Expo and AutismOne worked well together.  And now we are heading for the third, and fourth, collaborations - both in Chicago.  MORE

Five Days at AutismOne Was Exhausting...

June 1st,  2012 - I went to AutismOne last week primarily as an observer.  Terry and Ed Arranga put on a great event.  I did speak, leading a panel discussion, on Friday morning at 10:30 AM - "FOIA Exposes CDC Lied Claiming Mercury in Vaccines is Safe..." with Brian Hooker PhD, Kentucky attorney Bob Reeves, and radio host Robert Scott Bell.  We had a very good audience.  The question period continued all weekend.

In short - we delivered a bombshell.  As reference - see the articles in the table on the right.

But mostly I simply looked around, trying to get a sense of how the Autism movement operated, with this conference as its primary expression.  And, I met, constantly, with the Autism leadership - one meeting after another.  I fell asleep in the airport waiting for my plane ride home, and then, again, on the airplane.   I am still digesting info.

Three of us from the Health Freedom Movement were there, and we compared notes all week - myself, Robert Scott Bell, and Julie Whitman Kline.  Robert was running fifteen minute recorded interviews all week -so we amassed a huge file of very valuable interviews.  You can see an excerpt by clicking here.

Of course I went to the Jenny McCarthy speech, and there I sat, a few feet away, while Robert Scott Bell interviewed her for his show.  About Jenny I have this to say: 

"I am glad that this happened to her and her boy, for with her, one could not find a better warrior, a better person, in a better place, to champion this issue.  And, this issue needs to be championed.  This girl is beautiful inside and out.  More, she makes it clear that there are solutions, that there is hope, and a light at the end of the tunnel.  This girl is real.  And, I like her.  She reminds me of my own daughter."

You can look at the AutismOne Schedule of Events to get an idea of the breadth of this happening.  It spanned a lot of issues.  For instance, I was standing in the hallway when a class let out, and about two hundred obvious police officers, only some in uniform, came out of a lecture room, heading my way.  They were there to be trained in what Autistic children were all about.  MORE

US State Department Holds Another (cough) "Mercury" Meeting...

May 9th,  2012 - I got a phone call from Lisa Sykes over the weekend.  She, and Paul G. King, on behalf of their organization CoMed, had attended the US State Department's meeting on Friday May 4th, 2012 in Washington DC, to establish the official US position on mercury amalgams (deadly dental fillings), and the use of Thimerosal (49% mercury) as a preservative in vaccines. 

According to Lisa, the vaccine conglomerate was there in force to speak, and not-so-quiet desperation was in their words - and present on their faces.

Why?  Because the United Nations Environmental Program (UNEP) has agendized the removal of mercury amalgams and mercury from vaccines, and the vaccine industry wants the US State Department to act as their champion at the UN conference, keeping mercury in vaccines in place at all costs.

The meeting lasted two-and-a-half hours with the mercury amalgam argument taking up most of the time - the first two hours.  Then the vaccine conglomerate began their comments - and all the big boys were there: Novartis, etc.  Then there was the so-called vaccine supporters (all, of course, funded by the vaccine big money boys): GAVI, PATH, and the American Association of Pediatrics (AAP).  And, they were there with a unified message, one that sounded like it was read from the same cue card.

Their message:  (1)  Thimerosal is safe, effective, and has been extensively tested, and (2)  Removing Thimerosal from vaccines would make vaccines too expensive for third world countries, because, they claim, without deadly mercury in the mix, vaccines would have to be refrigerated - and that is unaffordable in the Third World. 

If they were looking right at you when they said that stuff, you probably couldn't see their noses growing.  Thankfully, Paul G King PhD (photo at the right) was there, and Paul, simply stated out loud, "That is a lie.  You are lying" each and every time.  Everyone in the room heard THAT.  MORE

Could the Doctor's Data "Protective Order" Actually Shut Down Barrett, Quackwatch, and the Skeptics?

April 21st,  2012 - Yup...  Most definitely.

Two days ago I wrote about the "Protective Order" sought by Doctor's Data against Barrett, his minions, and hangers-on due to their Witness Intimidation activities in the Doctor's Data v Barrett, et al, federal court case..  There were some questions forwarded to me about whether or not the "Protective Order" would be strong enough to protect Barrett's victims and potential victims from Barrett and his co-conspirators. 

How so, you ask, since a good part of the sleazy skeptic (pseudo-skeptic) operation is intentionally based outside the US, so as to make it hard for the average victim to sue them, or to enforce court judgments?

That question is much easier to answer than you would think.  And, the answer is short - and to the point - the world-wide web is based in the US.  Hence, court jurisdiction is in the US.

Example - suppose one of the more well known pseudo-skeptics, Peter Bowditch, decides to ignore the "Protective Order," and attack witnesses on his Australian based websites.    Easy answer - he'd get one Order signed by the court, and a time limit to comply, whether he is in Australia or not.  After he refuses to obey, or misses the time limit, Doctor's Data simply informs the judge of that fact, and hands the Judge a new Motion - one, this time, ordering the  Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), based in Marina Del Rey, CA, to seize Bowditch's internet domains - and turn them off.  Poof - in a microsecond, Bowditch is gone from the internet, a bad memory, like a fart in an elevator.

Fact:  The Texas Jury Is Going To Hate Brian Deer...

And that would spell THE END for the British Medical Journal...

March 20th, 2012 - Something is very clear to me.  It's this:  Brian Deer is coming apart under pressure.   Deer was the instrument used against Andrew Wakefield over the MMR vaccine issue. With, or without, his consent he has become, and will continue to act, as the instrument to reverse that attack.  He has no choice in the matter.

Here's why:

(1)  Brian Deer has lost his media voice.  He is no longer being published in the Mainstream media.  It has been three years since he was last published in the London Times, or anywhere.  Simply spoken - he has been dropped.  He caused this to happen.  Below, I will show you how he did that to himself.

(2)  Deer's association with the skeptics was a big mistake.  He's finding out that the old adage "If you lie down with dogs you get fleas..." applies.

(3)  It is a simple fact that Brian Deer, under pressure, does not do well.  I will show you what I mean, very graphically, below, with a video of Deer being confronted.  Deer is about to face the confrontation of his life - in a Texas courtroom, and during all the "discovery" leading up to it.  I imagine that Wakefield's attorneys are eagerly anticipating those opportunities.  MORE

Quackpot "bobbie baratz" RIPPED APART, ONCE AGAIN, This Time in a Texas Hearing...

February 26th,  2011 - For years Stephen Barrett MD and Robert S. Baratz MD, DDS, PhD have been practically joined at the hip attacking cutting-edge health care practitioners and paradigms.  Barrett with his sleazy website combinations, and Baratz, alleging himself to be the president of the National Council Against Health Fraud (NCAHF), formed a one-two punch across America.  They did it virtually everywhere.

Usually, in a health professional State licensing hearing situation, Barrett files a Complaint against a practitioner victim, and recommends himself, Baratz, or both, as an expert witness.   If they are successful in getting a Formal Complaint filed, either or both put that information on their websites, then they seek out local attorneys, near their practitioner victims, to arrange lawsuits against that practitioner, offering, once again, their "expert" services.

Sometimes, as in a group of lawsuits filed supposedly by the NCAHF in California, they filed suit using the NCAHF name, and made themselves paid "expert" witnesses.

However, as it turns out, some, if not most, States could call this activity, Barratry, a criminal act.  Texas calls it a Felony of the Third Degree.  California lists it as a Misdemeanor.  Illinois, on the other hand, calls it a Petty Offense.

So, it was with great joy that I got invited to assist Texas attorney Ronald Armstrong in a hearing before the Texas Medical Board cross-examining the testimony of Robert S. Baratz MD, DDS, PhD (bobbie baratz) on Monday, February 13th, 2012.  Baratz was there as a so-called "expert witness" testifying against Autism doctor Jesus Caquias MD, formerly of Care Clinics in Austin.  Five Complaints to the Texas Medical Board (that we know of) had been filed against Caquias by Stephen Barrett.  Armstrong was VERY clear in his view of what was happening - and intended to pursue it.

"Well, well..." I said to my self.  "This is going to be fun..."  MORE

(Brian) Deer in the Headlights...

January 10th, 2012 - It's Deer Hunting season in Texas.

No, I'm not talking about hunting White Tail Deer along the Milk River in West Texas, or Mule Deer anywhere in the Texas Panhandle.  So, put that key to the gun cabinet back in your pocket.

White Tail and Mule are NOT the deer being hunted in Texas in THIS story.  Nobody is going to be wearing camouflage, and we aren't going to have to hike eleven miles before dawn, carrying a sixty pound pack.

Today we are after the imported Deer variety, the Brian. 

We'll be doing our hunting in Downtown Austin, Texas, the State Capitol.  Specifically, we'll be centering our story in the Travis County Courthouse (pictured on the right), where, unless you are a member of law enforcement, guns are pretty much prohibited.

But, make no mistake, Brian Deer, here, is under the gun.

The hero of our story today is a guy I haven't yet met - Andy Wakefield, who just happened to be a resident of Austin, Texas on January 5th, 2011, the day that Brian Deer's article "Secrets of the MMR Scare:  How the Case Against the MMR Vaccine Was Fixed" was published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ).  It was accompanied by two editorials by Fiona Godlee, Editor of the BMJ titled "Wakefield's Article Linking MMR Vaccine and Autism Was Fraudulent," and "Editor's Choice:  The Fraud Behind the MMR Scare."

Yup, I'm talking, here, about the Andy Wakefield, from Britain, famous for suggesting that there might be a connection between the MMR vaccine and Autism, and suggested, to the horror of the vaccine industry, that further study was warranted.  That same Andy Wakefield we see, officially, as Andrew J. Wakefield MB., BS., BRCS, formerly of Great Britain - but now a Texan.

It looks as though our Andy found a law firm in Austin, Texas called DiNovo Price Ellwanger & Hardy LLP who assigned to Andy their top business litigator Partner William M. Parrish (Bill), who, for the last thirty years has specialized in intellectual property issues and complex business litigation.

On January 3rd, 2012, a few days before the Statute of Limitations could run out, Bill Parrish filed, for his client Andrew J. Wakefield MB., BS., BRCS (Andy) a lawsuit in Travis County, Texas against Brian Deer, the British Medical Journal, Fiona Godlee.  The lawsuit claims that: MORE

The CDC Has Known All Along How Dangerous Vaccines Are - And Has Covered It Up... (Part Five)

December 18th,  2011 - Yes, you read that subtitle above correctly. 

We the people of the United States formed a government "of the people, by the people, and for the people" a long time ago, and we fully intend that government to stay within our control.

There are those within our society who have every intent to abuse our systems for their own benefit.  Often, history shows, those abusers work within that system, as employees, advisors, consultants, whatever.

That is not news, nor is it a new situation that we the people have to suddenly deal with.  Our founding fathers (and mothers) understood the foibles of humanity and built into our political arena a system of checks and balances.  That system is reflected at every level in our government; federal, state and local.

In the federal system, for instance, the founders divided our government into three distinct entities each watching the other two, insuring that none become despotic.  Those divisions; the Executive, the Congress, and the Judicial, just by their design, perform that function.

More, there are redundant systems - meaning that there is usually more than one way to keep one of our created government units in line, performing the functions we intended for them in the way we intended.  The Maryland Board of Physicians, for instance, has found out the hard way, recently, that those systems exist and can be readily activated to put a ring in their nose, so to speak, and lead them back onto the path of righteousness.  Click here, and here, to read the two articles (so far) about this situation.

In the first four articles titled "The CDC has know all along how dangerous vaccines are - and has covered it up..." I laid out, for the readers, the story parts:  (1)  the Starting Point, (2)  the Lawsuit Against the CDC, (3)  What the Government Agencies Actually Knew, and (4)  and What The "Vaccine Construction" Is and Does. 

In this fifth article of this series I will explain where this is all going, what is really happening here - the use of the Judiciary branch of the US Government to rein in the activities of an out-of-control federal agency - the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) - a Division of the US Department of Health and Human Services.

And something more.  Much more.  It is time for criminal indictment.

The search for documents, in this court case, is uncovering a pattern of criminal activity.  Whoever is running, making the decisions to withhold documents at CDC, knows where all this is going.  I am certain that within the walls of the CDC, right this minute, certain CDC employees - past and present, contractors, and consultants, etc. are quietly being told to personally "lawyer-up," and familiarize themselves on how to make claim to the Fifth Amendment provisions of the US Constitution (taking the Fifth).  MORE

Want to Keep Your Baby Healthy?  Stay Away From Pediatricians...

November 21st,  2011 - I'll be blunt.  Pediatricians, these days, are con-men - only here to push more-and-more dangerous, useless(?), vaccines on an unsuspecting public.  They have absolutely no other function.  They are, in fact, a whole section of US medicine that we could well do without.  It didn't used to be that way - but it is now.

Supposedly, Pediatricians developed as child specialists - and, to hear their representatives talk, they are the one-stop shop for all health issues pertaining to children.

Bull...

Their organization, calling itself the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), is totally, and virtually ONLY focused on vaccine promotion.  In 2010 the AAP took in $110,079,859.00 in total income.  Their thirty-three (33) sub-chapters, together, took in a total of $16,109,174.00.  All together they amassed $126,189,033.00 in total 2010 income.  More on this in a minute.

But, go ahead and guess where all that money came from...

Just below I am going to let you read a clip from a parenting magazine.  It is, supposedly, a Pediatrician talking about their patient days.  It sounds really good - like the pediatrician is really concerned about your child's welfare.  You need to read all the way down to the very last sentence (I put it in bold) before you get to what is really happening here.  MORE

The CDC Has Known All Along How Dangerous Vaccines Are - And Has Covered It Up... (Part Four)

November 5th,  2011 - Let me start with this, and put everything into perspective.

A retired attorney friend of mine, one who I discuss legal, and other, issues with, pointed out something terribly important one day.   We were talking about the vaccine issues.   He said "Children are a nation's greatest asset." 

It was a simple statement, but it stopped me cold with the realization that, in those simple words, Bill had gotten to the meat of the discussion - the one thing that, for whatever reason during what is called "the vaccine discussion," seems to be left out.  When, in fact, it is both the guiding, and the deciding, argument. 

So, let's say it again:  "Children are a nation's greatest asset." 

In the vaccine debate no other argument prevails - not "the cost of vaccines, nor how much good they supposedly do, certainly not how many people are employed in the Vaccine Construction, for sure not how much money they make for the drug industry, not how much it might cost to remove mercury as a preservative, nor how the industry might be destroyed if they had to maintain their own legal liability.  None of that..."

The CDC Has Known All Along How Dangerous Vaccines Are - And Has Covered It Up... (Part Two)

October 13th,  2011 - In late 2004 Biochemist Scientist Brian Hooker PhD had had enough.  He'd been looking, carefully, through the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)'s so-called "Evidence" that Thimerosal was "Safe and Effective" as a preservative in vaccines.  Having read all of the then available CDC studies making that claim, he, as a PhD Scientist, couldn't help but shake his head "NO."  To him, none of the purported proof was anywhere near being scientifically adequate.  Far from it.

So, like any math teacher would do to a student he began to communicate to the CDC his questions.   In essence he was saying "Show me your work.  Show me how you came up with these answers" - a reasonable question series among scientists, teachers and students, and frankly, the population of Planet Earth.

What was CDC's response?  STONEWALL -  a six year knock-down, drag-out brawl to get that information.  Brian Hooker would not let up.  Neither would the CDC.

At the CDC, the smell of corruption couldn't be masked, anymore, with air freshener.   CDC employees, backed by CDC attorneys, dug in deeper, surrounding themselves with a wall-of-silence, removing themselves from public scrutiny.  It was, without doubt, the CDC that President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder had in mind when Holder issued a 59 page Legal Opinion (here) just on this subject.  It started out by saying:

"When administering the FOIA, it is important to first note that the President and Attorney General have issued memoranda to all agencies emphasizing that the FOIA reflects a "profound national commitment to ensuring an open Government" and directing agencies to "adopt a presumption in favor of disclosure."

Obama and Holder were, no doubt, provoked by an earlier Congressional Report titled "CDC Off Center," which is summarized, below, with an opening statement:

"A review of how an agency tasked with fighting and preventing disease has spent hundreds of millions of tax dollars for failed prevention efforts, international junkets, and lavish facilities, but cannot demonstrate it is controlling disease."

So, what was provoking Brian Hooker?  What, specifically, were his concerns?

I asked Hooker about this situation.  I asked him to explain to me in layman's terms, what was wrong, for example, with the very first study, known as "The Danish Study?"

Hooker didn't hesitate.  He even wrote it down for me.  Then he carefully took me through the scientific jargon representing the scientific method  (considering my college days were forty to fifty years ago).  Here is what he said about the study known as: “Thimerosal and the occurrence of autism: negative ecological evidence from Danish population-based data” by Kreesten Madsen et al. 2003, published in the Journal of Pediatrics.

He said:  MORE

"What's-His-Name," Top Skeptic,- Still in the Clink...

September 23rd, 2011 - Start smiling.  The "skeptic" operation is in deep trouble - and they did it to themselves.

I have been pointing out, for some time, how the so-called "skeptics" (pseudo-skeptics) prefer anonymity, lashing out nastily from a hidden position, usually using a fake internet identity. 

I suspected, quite correctly, as it turns out, now, that there were good reasons for that secrecy.  I also knew, from reading their recruiting literature, that the central unit sought out society's flotsam, ne'er-do-wells, weirdos, and rejects.

But last week all that was topped after I was sent two articles from the Broward County Sun Sentinel - one  called  "Celebrated South Florida artist Jose Alvarez accused of identity theft" and the other '"The Amazing' Randi, renowned supernatural investigator, immersed in mystery about partner's alleged ID theft."

What those articles were telling me was that I had miscalculated.  I had thought that all those creepy "skeptics" were using fake internet names to cover up their real identities.  But, that's not true.  At least some of them (and maybe ALL of them?), according to official reports, were using "fake" names in real life.

Oh my...  MORE

The Federal "Data Quality Act" Is Our Friend...

August 27th,  2011 - It is no secret that I constantly sell the idea that an alliance needs to be made between the North American Health Freedom Movement and the Autism communities.  I keep pointing out that each community, having operated on their own for years, have developed strategies and tactics that serve them well.

My best argument, made to the Health Freedom Movement, FOR that alliance is simple:  I point out that the Autism community is the best public example of what happens when a social, in this case medical, system goes bad, and stays bad - an issue we fight every day in Health Freedom.  I also point out that the Autism community is LARGE and ANGRY.  Then too, Autism seems to be an affliction of the Upper Middle Class - people who do not take "no" for an answer - and they generally are of the opinion that the government works for them - not the other way around.  Just like us.

My best argument to the Autism community, FOR that alliance is that the Health Freedom movement has separate components that work together, we have a very good track record, we are experienced, and we are used to dealing with the human filth that inhabits the formal opposition.  We know when to put on a biohazard suit, and go into the fray with fumigation equipment, so to speak.

In middle March of 2007 I got a call from Anne Dachel from Age of Autism (AOA) asking me why I hadn't done any articles on the Autism problem.  My answer was direct:  Because, Anne, I said, "I don't know anything about the issue."

What evolved from that was a collaboration between Kenneth Stoller, MD, FAAP and Anne Dachel to write two superb articles for my newsletter:  "Throwing children into oncoming traffic: The truth about Autism" and "The Mushroom Cloud that Caused Autism".

You can read those by clicking on the titles.

Coming to the point...

So, when Ken Stoller MD calls me at home at 8:30 PM at night to talk to me about my latest Autism article "Vaccines - The Emperor Has No Clothes...," I take the call.  Ken is a fountain of information.

Ken's comments on my article centered around what's called the "Data Quality Act" and its prospective use in the situation I described surrounding the State Department's issuance of an unsigned, un-accounted-for, document to the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) on mercury claiming that mercury was no problem in vaccinations.  MORE

The United Nations Invites Mark Geier MD to Lead the Charge Against the Vaccine Industry...

August 8th,  2011 - Despite a massive campaign the vaccine industry is floundering, very likely near death - and that's a very good thing.  It may well be that, almost singlehandedly, Mark and David Geier, father and son, will provide the mechanism facilitating it's demise.

What's that mechanism?  The Geiers, and a very large team surrounding them, have focused on the vaccine industry's continued use of Thimerosal (deadly mercury) as a so-called preservative in vaccines.  It has become obvious to parents of millions of American children that vaccines are causing neurological damage (ADD-ADHD, Asthma, Autism, and more),  to their young, and that the vaccine industry, working with its public counterparts:  the Center for Disease Control (CDC), State Public Health units, and schools, is totally, and completely, responsible for this massive damage.  The Geiers say that Thimerosal is the primary culprit.

More, the vaccine industry, part of the also floundering Big Pharma complex, has used its gargantuan financial war chest to outright buy the US Congress, by lobbying to get a law passed removing all vaccine producers from any legal liability.

Wait a minute?  Didn't the vaccine industry claim that they took Thimerosal out of childhood vaccines?  Yes, they claimed that - and they lied.  They actually did just a show removal, taking Thimerosal out of only 3.48 percent of those vaccines - and all of that was in the US, attempting to mollify, and mislead, American parents of damaged children.  About 104 million childhood vaccines are administered, worldwide, each year, and only about 4 million have a preservative other than Thimerosal.

More, despite massive cover-up by the vaccine industry, it is becoming obvious throughout the world that the childhood vaccine schedule is the worst disaster foisted on the human population in Earth's history.  After the US government attacked Iraq, and Afghanistan, we forced, at gunpoint, Iraqi and Afghan children into the vaccine program - and the results were predictable.  All of those vaccines were jam-packed with mercury.

Think of this - ONE vaccine contains 25 times the amount of mercury allowable in the average human body.  The childhood vaccine schedule requires 38 vaccines during the first year of life - 950 times the safe levels for mercury in the average human body - and these are children - much smaller than the "average" human.

But, the Geiers, being scientists, looked at the vaccine problem as a whole.  They continuously asked the questions "Why, knowing how dangerous mercury is, does the vaccine industry use Thimerosal at all?  Why don't the government agencies responsible to protect our population, who have to know how dangerous this situation is, do something about this issue?"  In the US the Geiers have been under constant attack for even asking these questions - a situation that, for instance, parents of Autistic children are accustomed to also.

But last January, 2011, in Chiba, Japan...  MORE

Polevoy Thrashes Barrett and Grell in California - Piles of Money Change Hands...

July 23rd, 2011 - It's time for a good laugh.

Quackbusters, living in fear of discovery of their emasculation, have just settled two court cases secretly.  Huge piles of money have changed hands in the two cases.

HUGE piles...

In short - There is a court case in California (Barrett v Clark) where the quackpot menace was so badly defeated, so soundly embarrassed, so stomped on, that recently (insert heavy laughter here) they secretly settled out the case paying an undisclosed huge amount of money to Ilena Rosenthal. Rosenthal, and her attorneys, have been pursuing the threesome for money owed Rosenthal - close, by now, to $500,000 US.  What it's all about can be found here.

But to be able to get to the point where they could pour that owed money into Rosenthal's bank accounts, they first had to enter into a secret settlement in a US/Canada cross-border lawsuit "Quackbusters Sue Each other - All is Not Well in Scumville...") involving wanna-be "Czar/God of US Health Care"  Stephen Barrett, his personal attorney Christopher Grell, and the almost always-a-loser Terry Polevoy, Canada's bargain-basement copy of Barrett. 

That case "Quackbusters Sue Each other - All is Not Well in Scumville..." gave us all a glimpse of the internal rot of the quackbuster operation.

The quackbusters are all about misinformation.  The last thing they want anyone to be aware of is how badly they actually perform when push comes to shove.  They HAVE TO hide results like this.  MORE

Doctor's Data Responds to Barrett Legal "Whimpering"...

July 9th, 2011 - Another court document has been filed, this time by the Plaintiff, in the Doctor's Data v Barrett, et al, case.  It's intent was to answer the earlier, to me nearly indecipherable, document filed by the Defense (Stephen Barrett) a few weeks ago.

The legal arguments, at this point, are over the "Motion to Dismiss" filed by Stephen Barrett's legal team.  Barrett, it appears, is claiming that he is IMMUNE to lawsuits because, in his own words, he is "Assisting Government." (don't laugh - he is dead serious). 

More, it is clear, that Barrett was originally demanding that the US Federal court formally declare him to be the "Czar/God of US health care." (envision the word MEGALOMANIA here - like in sky-writing).
 

But, the last few documents filed by Barrett, it appears to me, have lost their demanding, condescending tone.  They have settled into a whine - sort of an effort to snivel, whimper, bleat, blubber, and mewl, hoping, as it were, to beseech the court for mercy - so he. Barrett, can live another day, legally - avoiding, what for him, would be the process of self-extinction - "Discovery." That "Discovery" would be a course of action where Barrett would have to reveal the names and activities of his masters and co-conspirators.  MORE

Stephen Barrett May Soon Need a "Food Taster?"...

June 18th, 2011 - There is no doubt in my mind that Stephen Barrett's masters, the ones that are paying his legal fees, and directing the Defendant strategy in the Doctor's Data v Barrett, et al, Federal court case in Chicago are worried sick.  For, the Judge's Decision in Barrett's "Motion to Dismiss" is due any minute.

Yes, the Decision is taking awhile - but there is good reason for it.  The legal arguments are not simple.  In short, there is a conflict between Substantive versus Procedural law, and the Judge will be setting precedent that will need to withstand Appeal.

I know that sounds confusing, but in reality it is a simple problem that will have to take careful legal analysis, and careful Decision writing by the Judge.  The conflict rises in that Illinois passed a new anti-SLAPP law that establishes a certain procedure to be handled in certain kinds of cases.  The trouble is that that State law's procedures conflict with the Federal Rules of Procedure, and the court is going to have to establish a legal precedent.  Barrett claimed protection under that anti-SLAPP law, and Doctor's Data replied "This a Federal Case and Federal rules apply."

But don't worry, no court is actually going to declare Stephen Barrett as "the Czar/God of US Health Care," the man who is "assisting government,"  blah, blah, blah...  That's not going to happen.  MORE

Stephen Barrett's Personal Attorney (David Wilzig) Sued For Malicious Prosecution...

June 11th,  2011 - Attorneys that work with, or for, Stephen Barrett do not do well.

David Wilzig, one of Barrett's latest personal attorneys, is developing significant problems.  He was suing, obviously working with Barrett, a slew of Biological Dentists, each case mirroring the last, with the same tired refrain - that "Biological Dentistry is quackery, blah, blah, blah, blah."  Although Wilzig doesn't call bobbie baratz (Robert S. Baratz MD, DDS, PhD) as his main witness anymore (insert a rude noise here), he has continued the same style attacks.  But, one of Wilzig's victims, a California Dentist named Alireza Panahpour, DDS, has had enough and is coming after Wilzig in a California Superior Court - and he is coming hard.

The current lawsuit against Wilzig is filed in Orange County Superior Court.  Because of how this case came to be, there could be seven more similar cases filed.   Just below is the summary of the first case:  MORE

The Attack on Mark and David Geier...

May 21st,  2011 - An attorney friend of mine, Bob Reeves, a mainstay in the mercury in health care wars, called me last April 28th, 2011 and asked me to look into some strange occurrences regarding Mark Geier MD and his son David Geier

As everyone knows, the Geiers are severe critics of the fact that Thimerasol (mercury - deadly toxic to humans) has NOT, despite false claims and misrepresentations from the vaccine industry, been removed from vaccines.

Bob asked me, as a Crisis Management Consultant, to analyze the situation and give him, and the Geiers, my Opinion and make some Recommendations.  This, below, is the Public Version.  The Private Version is much grittier.  MORE

In Texas...

April 7th, 2011 - Texas is a major battle ground in the health wars.  Always has been.  What is different now is that the pace has been stepped up. "Defense" is last year's strategy - it got part of the job done.

Now there is a shift - a big one, and it is rolling along quite nicely.  Before I tell you what's happening, who is doing it, and where it is going, I'm going to give you a little history by showing you  a summary of an earlier campaign.

The big battleground ten-to-fifteen years ago was California, and the North American Health Freedom Movement stomped through the state like Sherman's march to the sea Like Texas now, coalitions had been formed, problem areas identified, and strategies and tactics designed and implemented.  And, once rolling, it all went smoothly.  Unlike Texas, California is now a safe haven for cutting-edge health care.  MORE

Long Beach Health Freedom Expo Huge Success...

March 29th, 2011 -  Last weekend I was at the Long Beach Health Freedom Expo.  The place was packed for three days.  Any quackbuster attending had to be completely intimidated.  For when I say that the "health freedom movement outnumbers them 100,000 to 1," here, they got a practical application of what I'm talking about.

The photo to the left was taken during radio host "Coast-to-Coast" George Noory's panel discussion in the ballroom.  But, keep in mind that there were THREE radio show hosts at this event.  There were always multiple things, multiple lectures, etc., going on. Walking down the hallways it became obvious that virtually all of the speakers were well attended.

Clinton Ray Miller did, of course, start off the event, at 10:00AM Friday, and he set the tone for what was to come.  Immediately after Clinton's lecture the choices began, and attendees had to pick which speakers they wanted to hear, or which panel they wanted to catch.  MORE

I'm Speaking (Sigh) at the Long Beach Health Freedom Expo...

March 21st, 2011 - Blame Clinton Ray Miller

So, I get this email from Julie Whitman Kline, head person at the Health Freedom Expo, which says, in essence "How about 1:00 PM Friday in 306B?  I need a Lecture Description, a fresh bio, and a current photo..."

Julie is a lot like her Dad, Wendell.  Kind of assertive in a good way.  Pretty too - so nobody says "no."

So, I'll be around all day Friday for sure, starting out at Clinton's lecture at 10:00 AM, and following the schedule.  If I'm wandering around and you want to meet with me, ask at the National Health Freedom Coalition and National Health Freedom Action booth (602), or at my radio buddy Robert Scott Bell's booth (Sovereign Silver - 416).

The Plight of the Autism Activists...

March 13th, 2011 - I met with a group of the top people in the Autism Awareness Movement yesterday at a meeting hosted by Talk About Curing Autism (TACA) at the Hilton Hotel in Costa Mesa, California, right across the parking lot from TACA's Main office.

The speakers for the meeting were none other than Dan Olmstead and Mark Blaxill, authors of the book "The Age of Autism - Mercury, Medicine, and a Man-Made Epidemic."  Last night I got a signed copy.

They were introduced by Lisa Ackerman, TACA's top gun.  MORE

Pissy Pimple-Popper Polevoy Patently Purchased?...

February 6th, 2011 - The California attorney for Canada's cheap copy of Stephen Barrett, one Terry Polevoy, a Board Certified Pediatrician turned pimple doctor, submitted some papers to the Alameda, CA Superior Court last month indicating that a Conditional Settlement had been reached in the Polevoy v Grell and twenty un-named John Does case.  You can read the original article about this situation here.

Guess what the settlement contains... MORE

Barrett's "Battle of the Bulge" Begins...

January 7th, 2011 - Stephen Barrett, et al, filed some paperwork Monday, January 3rd, 2011 in the Doctor's Data v Stephen Barrett Federal Court case, in essence, demanding that the Court Dismiss the case in its entirety, financially sanction the attorneys for Doctor's Data, and Formally Declare Stephen Barrett as the "Czar/God of US Health Care..."

I kid you not...

The papers filed in the case are so ABSURD, even I, in my true skeptic world, am sitting here with my mouth hanging open in sheer disbelief - and I read the whole thing several times before I went to bed Monday night..

Michael K. Botts has stepped up to bat... (maybe, sort of, etc.).

I told you this would happen.  Now will come the quackbuster's last-ditch effort to destroy Doctor's Data - as fast as possible.  We'll call the attempt "Barrett's 'Battle of the Bulge'..."  Why?  Because I see the similarity, here, with the attempt NAZI Germany made on December 16th, 1944 to reverse their fortunes of war, stopping the Allied Invasion of Europe. 

Will this tactic work for Barrett?  (Start smiling right about here).  Absolutely not - for Barrett, and his band of numby-dumbies are walking right into the situation (trap) we want them in - they have put what Barrett actually is, right on the line.  In the documents presented to the Court are the arguments, I am not joking, that claim that Barrett is some kind of ultimate Demi-God, fully qualified (snort here) to decide US health care.  Perfect.  MORE

AAPS  Wallops Texas Medical Board...

December 8th, 2010 - Yes, this story about the American Association of Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) chewing up the Texas Medical Board in a Federal Appeals Court is already all over the internet.  However, not one of the stories tell you what's going on behind the scenes.  And, that's where the action is.

Fasten your seat belt.

Now, it's very clear that AAPS sued the Texas Medical Board a while back, in Federal Court, making some very specific allegations - but - the case didn't attract much attention, because, you know, lawsuits happen all of the time - right?

Wrong.  This case was a sleeper.  In other words, the strategy, right from the start was to low-profile it.  The fact is this case is a bombshell, designed to rip the quackbuster conspiracy from its roots, and spray Roundup on the stump.  This case is converging quickly with the Doctor's Data v Stephen Barrett Federal Court case.

What?  The two cases are related?

Ah, yup...  MORE

ObamaCare -  The US Health Freedom Movement is Responsible for the Best Changes - But There is Still Much Work to be Done...

October 31st, 2010 - It is common knowledge that few, if any, Americans believe what US network TV tells them about health care.  Most people don't believe what the big newspapers tell them either.  Americans think that our media is controlled - and it is.  So, Americans, even those involved in conventional, status quo, health care seek real information elsewhere. And, where do they go?  The answer to that question is readily obvious.  They get information about what is really happening from those of us in the North American Health Freedom Movement; websites, newsletters, radio shows, TV shows, conferences, public speaking engagements, legislative efforts, etc. 

In fact, just about everything we do works.  We are being listened to by the people that matter.  I'll give you a demonstration further down the page.   MORE

While We're Waiting...

October 5th, 2010 - You're right.   Stephen Barrett has, so far, it seems, missed the Thursday, September 30th deadline to Respond to the Doctor's Data v Barrett Federal lawsuit.

So far.

Yes, it's true, that no papers were apparently filed with the Court by 5:00PM on that date.  And, also very obviously, no electronic filing was made by midnight of that same date. And, I checked to see if Barrett had tried to change jurisdiction to some other Court - nothing.

Don't get your hopes up, just yet, to be able to start collecting Barrett souvenirs, however.  There is still one more legal option available.  Barrett's attorney could have dropped a package in the mail before 5:00PM on September 30th, 2010, making certain he has a record of the postmark time.  MORE

Doctor's Data v Barrett "Second Amended Complaint" to be Filed - and More...

September 18th, 2010 - This case is becoming an Event to watch...

In mankind's not-so-distant past we used to have public hangings of criminals.  It was a popular spectacle.  Citizens would gather from miles around for the Event - and would cheer when the executioner pulled the trap handle and the criminal dropped to his death. 

Sometimes, in our so-called Modern Society, certain elements condemn what used to occur in public, suggesting that the penalty was too severe.  What these critics failed to realize was that "hanging" was reserved for the worst of the criminals - those that had obviously, and with disdain for for the public good, done horrendous acts - usually involving the suffering and death of many.

So, the ridding, by society, of these people, was very much something to cheer about.  People could sleep in their beds in relative safety knowing a beast was gone.  Public hangings were, in fact, therapy for a long-suffering community.

That's the way I look at what's happening to the quackbusters in the Doctor's Data v Barrett, Federal Court case.  MORE

Stephen Barrett, et al, Fear RICO...

August 31st, 2010 - Twice now, before the Doctor's Data v Barrett, Federal Court case, Stephen Barrett has been named in a RICO action (Racketeering Influenced Corrupt Organization).  Both times Barrett squawked like a buzzard.  One of those times he sued the people who had named him in that incident - only to settle the case moments, so to speak, before I was scheduled to testify against him.

Keep in mind, too, that Barrett sued me, making the case last almost ten years, without ever going to Court.  To me, Barrett's reasons for delay were obvious - he knew, because my attorney Carlos Negrete, and I, made it very clear that as soon as the case began to move forward, our first thrust would be an immediate demand for Barrett's psychiatric evaluation - at the hands of a Board Certified Psychiatrist of our choice.  And then there was the second move, and the third, and the fourth...

Right now - Stephen Barrett is trying to make some desperate legal moves, and I am about to explain why... MORE

Barrett Lawyers Up - Sort Of...

August 21st, 2010 - I admit this move by Stephen Barrett  took me by surprise.  I actually thought this lawyer Barrett hired, to defend him in the Doctor's Data v Stephen Barrett, et al case, Michael K. Botts, was dead. 

More, the last case Botts handled for the quackbusters (Herbert v American Quackery Association - 1987) ended so badly for them I would have thought Botts would be the LAST CHOICE they'd ever use.

But here he is... MORE

Doctor's Data Shows Mercy to Stephen Barrett... I'm VERY Disappointed...

July 30th, 2010 - I guess Doctor's Data wants to use a kinder, gentler approach then I do.  They gave Stephen Barrett sixty (60)  days, instead of twenty-one (21) to respond to the Federal lawsuit they filed against him.  The sixty day period started on June 29th, 2010 so Barrett's answer is not due until August 30th, 2010.  I'll connect you to a Court Document about  this in a minute.

Sigh...

And here I hoped that, by then, the "Collection Phase," against Barrett, et al, would be in full swing.  I was hoping to bid on his belongings.  I could have set up a website selling "Barrett Souvenirs." Just think, you may have been able to buy original Barrett papers to use to line your cat box - or some other equally appropriate use.

But, I guess all this is going to take much longer.

What they, Doctor's Data's legal team, did, was to send Barrett a letter, asking him to accept legal service of the lawsuit by mail instead of by process server.  In exchange they would allow him 60 days to respond, instead of the mandatory 21 days after process.  Barrett signed the agreement thereby giving him more time.

But, what is TERRIBLY important, and what I want you to look at carefully, is Barrett's printed name, and his signature, on the agreement.  It is clear that he is shaking nearly uncontrollably. MORE

Quackpots in a Tizzy Over Barrett Getting Sued...

July 9th, 2010 - A friend of mine sent me a link to a blog calling itself "Respectful Insolence," run by the guy I thought was going to be Barrett's replacement "Orac the Nipple Ripper."

Ok, the guy doesn't actually call himself "Orac the Nipple Ripper."  I call him that. He calls himself just plain "Orac."  But since I found out he is a breast cancer surgeon in Detroit, well, you know, I tend to call a spade a spade - and, a nipple ripper a Nipple Ripper.

For the most part I avoid venturing into quackpot discussions for I have a similar reaction, I think, that a prison guard would have after having to listen in on a group of pedophile prisoners talking.  But, this time, I ventured in, read the material, then made a few selected comments using  a pseudonym, and I struck pay dirt.

It seems our boy "Orac the Nipple Ripper." wrote a whiny blog article called "More legal thuggery against a defender of science-based medicine," - talking about the Doctor's Data v Barrett, et al case, so I had to go read the article, and the comments from his kiss-up peanut gallery. 

Yup.  Pay dirt.

Imagine, for a moment, being a police officer, and stopping on your way home in a bar for a beer only to have the guy next to you brag that he is the guy who's been robbing all those banks they're looking for - and give you the details... and show you the gun.

It was like that.  I couldn't believe my eyes.

 I really, really, couldn't believe my eyes... MORE

I Love the Smell of Napalm in the Morning...

July 2nd, 2010 - I've got a copy of the Doctor's Data v Barrett Federal lawsuit attached to this article.  Be careful when you handle it - it's HOT...

I was kind of mad at Darryl Hickok, the head of Doctor's Data laboratory a few months ago, for not walking out and legally punching sleazebag Stephen Barrett, and his minions, in the face over their obvious intent to destroy Doctor's Data, and hence, a whole host of great US Doctors, with their activities. 

For, as I constantly point out to people, there is only one way to deal with Barrett and his slimy ilk - you have to, so to speak, slap them, and whack them, and kick them, and stomp them, yank their pants down and paddle them publicly - every time.  It is the only thing that works.

But then Doctor's Data, on June 18th, 2010 came out with a forty-one page Federal Lawsuit against Barrett, et al, which, in war terms, makes me say, quoting the famous line from one of my favorite movies of all time "Apocalypse Now",  "I love the smell of napalm in the morning..."  MORE

More Reasons Why Stephen Barrett was Afraid to Go To Trial in the San Diego Federal Court...

June 17th, 2010 - I have received a lot of amusing comments about the "Barrett Settlement" stories I've been telling.  Apparently there a a lot of people out in the world who, you might say, have an interest in Stephen Barrett's troubles. (Insert your own pointed comment here).

But, had I wrote the whole story, all at once, about what actually happened, although amusing, it would have just been too long.  One phone call could have broken your laughing concentration - and we don't want that - for a good story is a good story...

So, here is part three of the "Barrett Settlement" saga.  Today we are going to deal with the witness list Barrett submitted, claiming he was going to use them at trial.  Frankly, when I looked at the list when it first popped out of the Barrett pop tart toaster I laughed out loud, and smacked my hands in glee, somewhat like a happy child being told "we're heading for Disneyland again..." MORE

The Assault on Autistic Children and their Parents...

May 1st, 2010 - Things are about to change in the Autism Wars.  A new report is going to be released next week.  Find out about it below.

Everybody knows that I am a Crisis Management Consultant in the health care industry.  I get called into the cases where the quackbuster misinformation group is operating.  Not so long ago, I was hired to look at a situation in Austin, Texas where a clinic was attacked by goofbag Stephen Barrett on several fronts - a Texas Medical Board complaint was filed against the doctor (Jesus Caquias MD), all of the health insurance companies stopped paying the clinic for their services, and the FBI raided the clinic last July 2009, claiming in the warrant that they were investigating the clinic for "Insurance Fraud," and "Health Fraud" violations.

But, fear not, for Barrett made some serious mistakes, and if I have my way he'll get criminally indicted in Texas for his actions.  Keep reading.

The officially approved treatment, in the US, for Autistic children is to put them in a State mental facility.  There, on day one, they yank their pants down to their ankles, bend them over a table, and jab a hypo full of mind numbing drugs into their buttocks.  Then they throw them into a ward, keep them doped, where, most likely, they will die in a few years.  And, if you read the US Inspection Report on the State of Texas Mental Health Facilities I think you will conclude, as did the Federal Investigators, that they'd be better off dying sooner than later - for the facilities are a hell-hole of problems, including rampant sexual abuse.

Why is this "institutionalizing" of Autistic children the officially approved treatment?  Because according to "the system" Autistic children have been convicted.  Their crime?  They have been officially declared, along with their parents, as having defective genes.

What?  Defective genes?

Yup.  That's the argument.  According to the powers that be there is no proof of a relationship between Autism and environmental issues, like vaccines.  It is the people who are defective - middle class, and upper middle class Americans, primarily Caucasians.  More, according to "the system," it is the brighter people who have the defective genes.

Suzanne Somers's Cancer Book "Knockout" Soars to Number One on New York Times Best Seller List...

November 12th, 2009 - It just had to happen sooner or later - the truth about the US Cancer Industry not working at all, just had to come out - to the American public, in a very big way.

If you haven't picked up, and read, Suzanne Somers's newest book, you don't have anything better to do today, after you finish reading my newest newsletter, of course, than running down to the store and picking up a copy.  In fact, if you have a list of people in mind you care about, then pick up more than one, and give those people a copy.  The book is about the real world, and, frankly, I think Suzanne did a better job, much more, than she intended.

There is a Foreword to the book by Julian Whitaker MD.  Those of you who know Julian will not be surprised that he tells it like it is, clearly and succinctly.

Then Suzanne tells her story about how, about a year ago today, she had a health problem coming home on an airplane, checked into an Emergency Room unable to breathe properly, and was given about a gazillion dollars worth of what hospitals seriously label as cutting-edge testing.  She was then diagnosed by six separate doctors there with full-body cancer.  They recommended, of course, full-body chemotherapy and told her to get her affairs in order immediately.

This all came as a big surprise to Suzanne, of course, who prides herself on taking care of her health.  After the initial shock wore off common sense kicked in, as in "wait a minute here, Cancer does not come on this quick."  There is something wrong with this situation. MORE

Quackbusters Sue Each Other - All is Not Well in Scumville ...

October 15th, 2009  - On November 3rd, of the year 2000, quackbusters Stephen Barrett, Terry Polevoy, and Christopher Grell sued me, Tim Bolen, along with a whole host of people, claiming that world famous author and health humanitarian Hulda Regehr Clark PhD had hired me, Tim Bolen, to defame them - and that several others had conspired with Clark and myself to accomplish that.  After 8 and 1/2 years of no action to prove the case the judge threw it out, Dismissing it out of hand. You can read the entire article, the one that went around the world like wildfire, detailing Barrett, Polevoy, and Grell's huge humiliation, by clicking here..

The case wracked up huge legal bills for the Plaintiffs who also had to pay for the attorney fees for one of the Defendants, Ilena Rosenthal.  And, those bills came to over $500,000 US.  And, they are not yet paid.

More, Ilena's attorneys are getting very aggressive about the collection.  As well they should.  Last month, in Ontario, Canada Ilena's attorneys won a judgment against Plaintiff Terry Polevoy for $311,000 US plus three years back interest - totaling over $350,000 US.  They want payment, from Polevoy, right this minute.

And Polevoy is screeching like a cornered rat...

He is blaming Grell and Barrett for his problems.  He could be right - or not.  I'll let you read his lawsuit in a minute.  MORE

Congratulations to the AAHF/ANH on their Strategies...

September 23rd, 2009  - I am a very loud critic of the US Health Care system.  It sucks, and the American public is suffering from it.    There is, right now, an ongoing dialogue in the US about how to resolve the healthcare crisis.  But, for many of us the fact exists that the points under national discussion do not even come close to the reality of the problem, for, it is obvious, the dialogue only seems to be between the different factors of the very problem.

There is an old adage "identifying the problem is half way to solution."  At the moment in the official US healthcare dialogue the real problems are not being addressed - and, of course, because of that there is virtually no movement towards solution. MORE

The Six Components of the 2008 Quackbuster Operation...

February 22nd, 2008 - Do not, for even a second, think that the US "Quackbuster" operation, a plot to stop anyone, and everyone, from changing the broken US health care system, is run, or even maintained, by delicensed MD Stephen Barrett out of his 2421 West Greenleaf Street, Allentown, Pennsylvania address, or his condo at 287 Stoneview, Pittsboro, North Carolina.  It would be foolish to assume that this bitter, nasty, old man, who stumbles through life, tripping from one professional failure to another, is running a cleverly set up plot.  He's just the "front man."  The one they want you to focus on.  He's ill.  He'll die soon, and someone else will take his place as the frontispiece.

So, who really is running it?  And why?  And, how is it being done?  Keep reading, and all will be revealed. MORE

The US is the Worst Place in the World to Get Cancer Treatment...

May 21st, 2007 - Everyone "in the know" knows that if they, or a loved one, gets diagnosed with Cancer, that it's time to get their Passport out of the safety deposit box, and start checking with those who keep track, to find out just exactly where to go, right now, for the best Cancer cure.  For, if you stay in the US, and take the conventional variety of Cancer treatment, your chances of survival are slim to none. 

The conventional US Cancer community is a murderous rip-off that generates shiploads of money.  It provides the most horrible death imaginable, with the most suffering, the least hope, and the highest price paid.  Europe, Asia, Mexico, the Islands, Central America all offer solutions that work.  MORE

US Supreme Court Upholds "Ongom;"  Quackbuster "Plan of '96" Foiled...

April 25th, 2007 - The New York ad agency that actually runs the US "quackbuster" operation has to be, this week, taking extra blood-pressure medication, avoiding telephone calls from angry clients demanding to know why the "Plan of '96" isn't going to work as promised, anymore.

Why?  Because the State of Washington took the "Ongom" decision to the US Supreme Court and that Court UPHELD the Washington Supreme Court decision.  This is very good for cutting-edge heath professionals, and very bad for those trying to stop innovation in health care.  MORE

Pennsylvania Dental Board Approves Cavitat Device, NICO - Dumps Quackbusters...

April 22nd, 2007 - Public agencies have relied on the "quackbuster" operation for expertise in health care issues far too long.  The time when an agency could fly some "quackbuster" bozo in for a hearing, have them testify to nonsense for a few hours, and stuff them back on a plane, fat check in hand, with the sure knowledge they had a "win" is long gone.

  The State of Pennsylvania Chief Counsel's office and the Pennsylvania Dental Board found that out the hard way, over almost a three year period, in the "Commonwealth of Pennsylvania v. Stephen R. Evans, DDS" case. 

The case, which began in 2003, upon the complaint of one of the "quackbuster" nitwits, dragged through Administrative hearings, Superior Court, and back to Administrative hearing, then finally found its way back to the Dental Board - with Orders from the Superior Court AND an Administrative Law Judge to decide, completely, and unarguably, on behalf of the Respondent Stephen R. Evans DDS.  MORE

Quackbuster Assaults:  Clark, the One that Worked in Reverse... 

April 9th, 2007 - The US "quackbuster" operation, suffers humiliation almost daily these days.  When you listen to their leadership discuss this problem they inevitably blame one person for their woes - scientist, and author, Hulda Regehr Clark PhD.

76 year-old Clark, an independent scientific researcher and author of six best-selling books on health care and what's wrong with it, is clearly the most hated person in quackbusterland.  Why?  Is it because they can't beat her down, can't stop the sale of her books, can't have her imprisoned, can't destroy her reputation, can't frighten her into submission, and can't destroy her work through innuendo and smear tactics? 

Yes, those are reasons, and good ones, but they aren't what creates the vehemence and the spittle spewing from "quackbuster" lips when they discuss Hulda Regehr Clark PhD.  MORE

Victory Bells to RING at Health Freedom Expo Long Beach...

February 27th, 2007 -The North American Health Freedom Movement (NAHFM) is charging through health care issues like General Dwight David Eisenhower smashed through Europe after D-Day on June 6th, 1944.

All over the United States, and Canada, health freedom assault armies are ripping the existing health systems to rags, and demanding REAL health care NOW.  Ten US Senators, last week, sent a letter to President George W. Bush, demanding change RIGHT NOW - and Bush responded pretty much by saying "sounds good to me - let's do it." MORE

Why is the US Health Care System Failing? - Incompetent Management at DHHS...

February 13th, 2007- Nobody even tries to hide the fact that the US Health Care System is broken beyond repair.  There is a lot of finger-pointing going on, as well there should be.  The US health care system costs too much, it's the top three killers of Americans, and Americans don't trust it.  It simply doesn't work.

Who's fault is this?  Blame lies solidly with the management of the US Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS).  Current management is incapable of dealing with health care problems.  It has set up a US Health Care system that doesn't work, and has no chance of ever working.  MORE

Anti-Quackwatch "Defamation" Litigation ROARS Forward...

February 1st, 2007 - It's not easy, these days, being a "quackbuster."   What with the (1) public humiliation surrounding recent High Court decisions (2)  rejection by the US Court System of "quackbuster" "expert witnesses," (3)  pointed questioning of "quackbuster" credentials  (3) internet, and other successful public challenges, of the quacker's activities, and much more, the "quackbusters"  have really fallen on hard times.

Quackbuster Citadel Crumbling - They Face Massive Litigation...

December 31st, 2006 - The conventional healthcare system in the US, rated 72nd in quality but first in cost by the World Health Organization, (WHO) and declared in the authoritative study "Death by Medicine" to be the number one killer of Americans is finally beginning to suffer the consequences of its policies.

 Americans are challenging, not just the concept of "five minute medicine," but the absurdity of the "drugs, drugs, and more drugs," approach to dealing with health issues. MORE

How to file a CRIMINAL COMPLAINT against Spamhaus/SPEWS...

There's no question in my mind that the Spamhaus/SPEWS Project is a criminal conspiracy designed to damage legitimate American businesses' and social activist's ability to communicate on the word wide internet.  The Spamhaus "volunteers," and the SPEWS manipulators, hide to protect their identities from those victims to avoid both criminal and civil legal actions against themselves.

But that's over. What Spamhaus/SPEWS is doing is a series of criminal acts, and the US government is VERY interested in gathering data.  The Federal Trade Commission  (FTC) has already opened an investigation, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has teamed up with the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C) to create a special agency to deal with these sort of assaults on the American economy.  Below, I'll show you how to file your own complaint.  And I advise you to do just that.

Tim Bolen - Where've You Been?...

November 23rd, 2006 - I've received a lot of inquiries about my newsletter's absence over the last several months.  Where've I been?  Right here, trying to figure out who, and how, someone was messing with my newsletter broadcasts - and what to do about it. 

Activist groups across America - beware.  This is going to happen to you. 

I've had several VERY IMPORTANT articles to broadcast for months now - and I suspect I was blocked because of those articles.  It wasn't that big of a secret that I was working on these exposes.  A lot of people knew. MORE

The "Most Dangerous Woman in America - (to the Medical Establishment)" to Speak in Chicago...

June 4th, 2006 - The "most attacked" proponent of change to the "drugs, drugs, and more drugs" medical paradigm, scientist and author Hulda Regehr Clark PhD, is the primary speaker, Saturday (10:00am, and Sunday 10:00am), with an additional three hour "laboratory workshop" on Sunday afternoon at the Health Freedom Expo Convention in Chicago, June 9th, 10th, and 11th, 2006.  Clark will be doing book signings in her booth at the Expo.

The "Cal Streeter" Story...

May 31st, 2006 - I'm about to tell you about one of the most important cases in US healthcare, an assault, and a turning point - the prosecution of a Northwestern Indiana cutting-edge Doctor of Osteopathy, Wilbert C. (Cal) Streeter. 

Although few have ever heard of the Streeter case, it, of itself, and of its result, make it a landmark.  The case began, roughly, in 1996, as the result of certain pressures put on the government by the nefarious "quackbuster"  operation, and it is still going on - but has taken an entirely different, and interesting turn. 

The case is interesting to the powerful North American Health Freedom Movement because it was THE CASE,  I believe, that was supposed to be the "model case" to be used against all "Alternative Medicine" practitioners nationwide.  But since the case pretty much died on the vine, so to speak, the "model" was dropped, and although the tactic was used in a few places - it wasn't continued.  MORE

Quackbusters" Crushed in Massachusetts Dental Case...

February 23rd, 2006 - The "quackbuster" operation in North America, run out of a New York ad agency,  took another broadside last month in Massachusetts when the Massachusetts Dental Board called, not one, but two, "special meetings," both to dismiss, with prejudice, all seven charges against cutting-edge Dentist David Satloff.  The attempt to use a State agency in a "fake" prosecution to eliminate "Holistic Dentistry," and/or "Biological Dentistry" failed. 

Charges had been brought against Satloff by the National Council Against Health Fraud (NCAHF) president Robert S. Baratz who claims to be a combination MD, DDS and PhD.  Baratz was, also, the only person to testify against Satloff - and he testified for nine full days.  I estimate Baratz was paid $125,000 for his testimony by the State of Massachusetts.  Baratz testified in an earlier hearing that he has never, actually practiced Dentistry.  He also claimed to be a "spokesperson" for the American Dental Association, and a consultant to the US FDA.  MORE

The US "Health Insurance" Industry is Trying to Destroy America...

December 9th, 2005  - The US Health Insurance Industry is vying with "Big Pharma" for the title of America's "Public Enemy Number One."

For a while, I believed that "Big Pharma," alone, in their murderous greed, was responsible for the problems of "health care" on Planet Earth.  And, frankly, in most parts of the world - I'd say that's still true.

But, not in the USA...

Here, the Health Insurance Industry is giving "Big Pharma" a run for it's money - and a LOT of money that is. MORE

More about - Quackbuster Barrett BROKEN in "Home Town" Court...

October 15th, 2005 - Below is an interesting Press Release sent to top "quackbuster"  Stephen Barrett, the author of the dubious website, "quackwatch.org's" local newspaper.  But before I let you see that, I want to explain what happened in this case.

In short - Stephen Barrett's claims that I, Tim Bolen, and those people re-posting, or quoting my articles, allegedly having "defamed" him, have now been thoroughly examined in a Court of Law - and Barrett's claims, within that Court of Law, in his own home town of Allentown, Pennsylvania - a Court of Barrett's own choice, have been determined to have no merit.

Quackbusted Barrett Broken in "Home Town" Court...

October 13th, 2005 - In simple language - the Lehigh County Court Judge, today, in the Barrett v. Koren "defamation" case, ruled that Stephen Barrett wasted the Lehigh County Court's time with his meritless claims.

Just before lunch on Thursday, October 13th, 2005 (today), Judge Johnson of the Lehigh County Court of Common Pleas turned to the jury assembled to decide a case brought by one Stephen Barrett, a local resident, against famous Chiropractor, author, publisher, and health advocate Tedd Koren DC - and told the jury that he was ruling in favor of a Motion made by Defendant Koren. MORE

In Health Care "Constant Vigilance" is the Answer...

November 10th, 2005 - California has always been a leader in health care reform, officially and unofficially.  It's just that way in a State in constant transition.  I've pointed out, for a long time, that the health care paradigm is shifting - and nowhere is this more obvious than California. 

I've said, time after time, that fully half of the total US health dollar is being spent on alternatives to "organized medicine."  In California I'd say that about 80% of California's health dollars are spent on alternatives. MORE

Canadian "Health Freedom" Wins a BIG ONE...

November 25th, 2005 -  The Canadian "Health Freedom" movement spells the word "AGGRESSIVE" in all capital letters.  A few years ago concerned citizens from all across Canada gathered together and decided, like Californians, that they wanted "the best health care they could get - and they wanted it RIGHT NOW..."

What they do not want is a "Big Pharma" controlled "drugs, drugs, and more drugs" based health care system.

Because of their decision to (1) identify problems, (2) identify possible solutions, (3) make plans, (4) execute plans, (5) review situation, etc., the Canadian movement is far ahead of the US group in terms of GOAL achievement.  They have a plan - and they're working it - HARD.

Good for them.  MORE

Quackpot Polevoy Sued for Libel in Canada...

October 28th, 2005 - When the New York ad agency, the one the runs the "Quackbuster" operation against innovation in health care in North America opened its email program last month, it was probably chagrined to find that one more self-styled "Quackbuster"  was being sued for what many feel they do best - libel health care providers.

Terry Polevoy, a former pediatrician now turned "pimple doctor," has been sued in a case in Canada demanding:

1    General damages in the amount of $1,000,000.00; MORE

 

 

 

Suing Captain Screwloose - It Has Always Been an "Alter Ego" Case...

Stephen Barrett, and Quackwatch, Have Always Been Just the Figurehead.  The Judgment Money Will Be Seized Elsewhere - from the Cabal.

November 21st, 2014 - There is no question that Stephen Barrett, Quackwatch Inc, and the National Council Against Health Fraud (NCAHF) are going to lose the Doctor's Data v Barrett Federal Court Case.  It is a foregone conclusion.  There are only two real considerations for the Court to decide:  (1)  How much Actual and Punitive damages to award, and (2)  Who, specifically, is going to have their assets seized to pay the award.

it is obvious when you look at what is happening behind the scenes in the case, that Barrett and the other Defendants have no Defense at all - and never did.

When you look at the fact that, right from the start, Doctor's Data was looking for twenty million in damages, and Barrett, in his egomaniacal arrogance, after the lawsuit was filed, added MORE injury, you get a picture of what a Federal jury is going to be looking at.  More, history shows that courts do NOT like Stephen Barrett. On the stand he is his own worst enemy.

The strategy, all along, it looks to me, has been to sue, and name as the visible Defendants, that which the real cabal running the operation wants us to see.  Then, once the case is finished, and the visible Defendants lose, then comes the next process - Collection.  And with Collection comes the ability to IDENTIFY who the REAL Defendants are.

This is where the fun starts...  MORE

Inept "Skeptics" Attack NVIC FaceBook Page...

Laughter Erupts - a Story about the stumbling, bumbling activities of two nincompoops (E. Allison Hagood and Stacy Mintzer Herlihy) attempting to damage the NVIC FaceBook page...

October 28th, 2014 - I received a message from my friends over at the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) the other day, asking for some help defending against an all-out attack on their NVIC FaceBook page - an attempt to downgrade their credibility level.  So, I went to investigate, in my usual thorough manner, finding, along the way, a few interesting things I didn't already know about the pro-vaccine baby killers.

The trouble was that, before I got up to speed to "reveal" the giant conspiracy against the NVIC, and call for action, NVIC stalwarts manned the barricades, intercepted the "skeptic" assault, spanked them thoroughly, and sent them home to bed without dinner.  I'll let you read one of the "skeptic's" TOP STRATEGIST'S comments about what happened to them down below.  You will laugh.

The first thing I did was to start tracing back the individual so-called "skeptics" who were commenting on the NVIC page.  The obvious thing I found, there, was the commonality - looking at these people they all fit into the LOSER category - the kind of people who constantly criticize others to make themselves, in their rotten little no-life situation, feel better.  We've all met some of them, at some time, and we are always glad to find that they don't live next door to us.

But first let's do a little background...

There is a BIG PUSH in the United States to force, or scare, every US citizen into mandatory vaccines - as many as can be delivered, as fast as possible.  Why is that?  it's all about BIG PHARMA income.  Nothing else.  There are no legitimate reasons for vaccinations, at all, much less the sort of schedule BIG PHARMA wants.  I wrote about this before.  Below, in italics, is what I said:

We don't see as many of those annoying drug ads on TV anymore because, simply, their patents ran out and all of those drugs became available in "generic" form at a tenth of the price.  For a while the drug industry was in a panic, but then they came up with a new idea - that, for now, is working very well.

The idea that the drug industry in the US could, after their big patents ran out in 2012 and 2013, shift their profit center to an INCREASED CHILDHOOD VACCINE SCHEDULE, with NO legal liability (they can’t be sued), using, what are supposed to be OUR “watchdog” groups; Federal, State, and local governments, as their marketing tool, is at best absurd...

But, that's what we have, and...  MORE

Autism World - Quit Targeting Mainstream Media...

Ignore Them.  They Are NOT Our Friends...

October 15th, 2014 - I watched, with dismay, the Autism world,  using social media devices Twitter and Facebook, target certain reporters in mainstream media, trying to get the #CDCWhistleblower story into the hands of the American people.  I thought to myself "Oh My - these people are terribly naive.  They haven't a clue about mainstream media.  They did little, or no, investigation of their target, nor the audience it serves.  All that effort aimed in EXACTLY the wrong place."   More, you should be careful what you ask for - you might get it  - as they found out from a very negative ABC broadcast.

Mainstream media?  All propaganda - no news

From Wikipedia: (pay close attention to the bolded text in the quote).

In a book called "The Propaganda Model - Edward S. Herman and Noam Chomsky proposed a concrete model for the filtering processes (biases) of mainstream media, especially in the United States, called the propaganda model. They tested this empirically and presented extensive quantified evidence supporting the model. Through an extensive analysis of the financial roots that drive American news media as well as an in-depth look at coverage of specific news events, Herman and Chomsky demonstrate that mainstream news content represents the political and economic interests of the state and other varied powerful corporate entities. Any content that runs contrary to this status quo faces challenges in establishing mainstream credibility, and is consequently prohibited from being able to contribute to the democratic public sphere. The model is based upon four "filters" that impact news content. These filters are the consolidation of media ownership to a scant few all-powerful corporations, the influence and integration of advertising in mass media, the dubious reliability of experts and sources utilized by the news, and the concept of “flak,” which involves controlled negative responses to media content. They also note the importance of the historical context of anticommunism in the 20th century as a way to see how the mass media is prioritized to deliver a very specific narrative in the news."

In the Health Freedom world that fact is common knowledge. Mainstream media reporters, these days, are no more than street corner prostitutes - they just get paid a little better - sometimes.  More, as Dave Hodges of the Common Sense Show says: "CNN’s ratings are in the toilet. The network used to get 6-10 million viewers for their primetime shows, now they get less than 500,000. The American public is getting wise to mainstream media - and goes elsewhere for information.

WhistleBlower Apologizes to Andy Wakefield...

The CDC Whistleblower... 

The Story Mainstream Media Doesn't Want To Run...

August 25th, 2014 - I got the email, with video attached, from Andy Wakefield about the Brian Hooker PhD whistleblower revelation the same morning many others did.  It's just that I was OUT running errands all day, and failed to check my messages before I left.

What I am referring to is Andy Wakefield's latest nine minute video with Brian Hooker.. It is called "Senior government scientist breaks thirteen years of silence on CDC's vaccine fraud."  If you haven't seen it yet - Go watch it.  Click on the blue title in this paragraph.

I didn't need to worry, everybody else jumped on it and I am hard-pressed to come up with anything new and different for my readers.  I like Jon Rappaport's take on the whole thing.  I'll give you a link to Jon's articles down below. 

Hard-pressed to find something different, but not impossible.  Start smiling - for here it comes.

I started reading everything I could find that was already out there, including (and I usually NEVER do this) what the "skeptics" had to say about this issue.  It was there that I hit paydirt.  MORE

Fun Down Under - The "Skeptic" attack on the Australian Vaccination Network (AVN) Gets Turned Back On Them Every Time...

It is really fun to watch...

June 8th,  2014- I have not figured out, yet, why organized male homosexuals, calling themselves "skeptics," would be engaged in viciously attacking proponents of common sense in health care - but they do, just about everywhere in the English speaking world.  The country of Australia is a striking example.  The LGBT community should be ashamed of itself.

I have a few theories about why that is, why they do that, but since I'm not going to circulate in that world (I am content as a heterosexual, thank you very much), I am not going to carefully investigate this seeming anomaly.  In my world tractors are important (have I shown you pictures of my 1944 Ford Ferguson 2N I've been restoring?), tools - both indoor and outdoor, guns (of course), high-country, white water rivers, and mountain-tops.  I have no interest in face creams and cute shoes (not on ME, anyway).

In Australia, the "skeptic" attack on the Australian Vaccination Network (AVN), has become almost a continuing rendition of a down under version of "Saturday Night Live,"  or a remake of Mack Sennet's "Keystone Kops."  It is just plain hilarious to watch.  MORE

Doctor's Data Files For Third Amended Complaint Against Barrett and Co-Conspirators...

They Are In For the Kill...

October 10th, 2013 - On June 18th, 2010 attorneys for Doctor's Data filed what's now known as the Doctor's Data v Barrett Federal Court case in Chicago, Illinois.  It has turned into an epic.

Not very often does it happen, in a court, that three years four months into a case the Plaintiff files a Motion asking the Court's permission to file an Amended Complaint.  But that's just, exactly, what attorneys for Doctor's Data did.

It, absolutely, with no question, signals that Doctor's Data knows, with certainty, that it is going to win this case, hands down.  For the Third Amended Complaint is about adding additional damages to the record. 

Lots of additional damages.  Millions and millions of dollars of additional damages.

More, it indicates that Doctor's Data knows WHERE it is going to get that money from - and I can tell you right now that it won't be from Stephen Barrett - for he doesn't have the millions Doctor's Data is looking for.

They'll be going after the "alter-ego."

This Sums It Up...

The "Who Killed Alex Spourdalakis" Story...

September 30th, 2013 - I criticize the fact that what I call "Autism Leadership" does not generally organize, goal set, plan, and execute plans.  My complaints are valid, for those in power are not getting far in solving the autism problem.  I keep saying that the Health Freedom Movement needs to take over this issue and help the autism world - setting a timetable to mitigate autism issues - for they are all fixable.

But, in Autism Leadership's defense I need to point out that some of the problems the autism community faces are absolutely insane - like the story I am about to reveal to you today.  The "Who Killed Alex Spourdalakis" story.

Andrew Wakefield MD, a guy who does get things done, sent me an email a few days ago.  In it he had a 2 minute forty-five second short video talking about the documentary he and Polly Tommey from the Autism Media Channel are putting together about what happened to then fourteen year old autistic boy Alex Spourdalakis in the Chicago area.  I watched it, and then called Andy asking him for more details.  He sent me a completely confidential 22 minute video that answered 95% of my questions.  He asked me to hold that 22 minute video close.

The "Who Killed Alex Spourdalakis" story holds, within its circumstances, a detailed graphic outline of the problems autism parents generally face.  In its reality is a horror story - for once I child is diagnosed with "Autism" ALL conventional medical doors are closed to them - for conventional medical care proponents have decided that "Autism" is "all in their heads" and, consequently, is a "psychiatric problem," to be dealt with with mind bending drugs, rather than any kind of "medical problem" to be dealt with by regular health professionals.

Health Professionals operating within what's wrongly called "Alternative Medicine," all members of the Health Freedom Movement, look on this strange situation with disbelief, for, for them, autism is an easily, and readily solvable issue.  Why?  Because "Alternative Medicine" (cutting-edge) practitioners, all of which are trained FAR beyond conventional practitioners, recognize autism for what it really is - a form of encephalopathy which can be broken down into four much simpler categories - and, hence, be dealt with very successfully.  More - health insurers pay for the treatments, the patient gets better, and the patient caregivers can sleep at night, like parents of normal children.

So, why isn't that being done?  Why aren't we, as a society, solving the autism issue?  Good questions - all of which I am passing around, quietly, to Health Freedom leadership...  MORE

August 25th, 2013 = There is no question that the attorneys for Doctor's Data in the Doctor's Data v Barrett Federal Court case are shredding Stephen Barrett, and the Board Members of both The National Council Against Health Fraud (NCAHF),  and Quackwatch Inc.  As well they should.

Many people send me personal emails about my articles, and most are right on point.  Once in a while, like recently, a gem of information comes out - something that, as in this case, was right there in front of us all this time.  And it is important that we take a look at it.

T. R. Shantha, MD, from Stone Mountain, Georgia pointed out something VERY interesting - the simple fact that what Barrett did to Doctor's Data was NOT an isolated incident.  It is part and parcel of a pattern used against a whole class of practitioners.  And it is flat out "malice" against that class.  And, it should be dealt with as "malice.

Change Comes Hard...

July 23rd, 2013 - This is the tenth article in a series focusing on the fact that Autism is a social issue that could have been, and should have been, solved a long time ago. 

In my "Calling For Batman..." article, I pointed out  a pattern of poor tactics, and lack of a general strategic plan, by Autism Leadership.  I mentioned a "Summit Meeting" between Autism Leadership and key members of the Health Freedom Community.  I said:

"I offered to bring to that meeting at least ten significant, influential, members of the Health Freedom Movement to assist in the research and preparation of that Plan.  I offered to coordinate the situation analysis heading toward that Plan using a Crisis Management situation analysis."

I have been in contact with a good many of those "significant, influential, members of the Health Freedom Movement"  I offered to bring, and the consensus is "Yeah, let's do this..."

But, on the opposite side of the table, the Autism Leadership, there is only emptiness.  I haven't heard a word.  In fact - the opposite.  There is actually a group that wants to prevent a "Summit Meeting," claiming that THEY have all the answers, and they have no intention of even being in the same room with any others, neither in the Health Freedom world, and certainly not the Autism world.

I kid you not...  MORE

Health Freedom Steps in Where Autism Leaders Fear to Tread...

They Used the "V" Word (Vaccines) - Right in Big Pharma's Face...

June 28th, 2013 - This is the fifth article in a series focusing on the fact that Autism is a social issue that could have been, and should have been, solved a long time ago. 

When I first started looking into the reasons that Autism, a situation that, as I keep saying, "could, and should, have been solved years ago" was still with us, one of the things I was told was that there was this idea, within the Autism Community, that "you can't use the "V" word..." 

"And why is that?" I asked? 

It was that question, and the answers I received, that, quietly at first, put me on the investigative track determining just exactly who it was that was making Autism strategy and tactical decisions.

What do you mean you can't use the "V" word?  Who says? 

It became very clear that anyone within the Autism community that brought up vaccines as the cause of Autism, and wanted to focus on that situation, became ostracized by Autism leadership; belittled, insulted, marginalized, and definitely not invited to get falling-down-drunk with the "in crowd" at Karaoke Night at AutismOne.  For a refresher on this subject read Jake Crosby's excellent article "SafeMinds Steals the Show - Literally."

It was this situation, coupled with even more ludicrous circumstances, that provoked me to ask even more uncomfortable questions of so-called "Autism Leadership."  MORE

Barrett's Calamitous Legal Defense Against Doctor's Data...

A Foison of Frequent Frantic Floppy Floundering in Fluff and Flummery...

May 9th, 2013 - I thoroughly enjoy reading the latest legal filings in the Doctor's Data v Barrett Federal Court case every time something new comes out - and something new HAS come out.  Why do I enjoy them?  Stephen Barrett is such a piece of work.  He is, to me, a megalomaniac so immersed in his own crackpot view of the world that, after watching him for a while you can't help but see humor in his antics - not one he, HIMSELF, would see, of course, but there none the less.

The real beauty in the picture is to observe Barrett try to force his nonsense on the court system and then watch what happens to him.  Oh, to see the look on his face when his idiocy is rejected by a Judge, in a State or Federal Court.  Life can be good.

And, boy oh boy, is that happening...  There is almost no end to it.

Today I am going to point out what I call "Desperation Deposition" on Barrett's legal team.  In short, Barrett's attorney Michael K, Botts, Esq is SO DESPERATE for something to use to defend that he (prepare to laugh) was asking each Doctor's Data employee that was deposed (there were three) to opine "What is false or defamatory about this title, phrase, sentence, or paragraph...?"

As in "what is defamatory about the word "the?""    Go ahead and laugh.  Everyone else is.  MORE

Doctor's Data v Barrett Case - January, 2013 Update

January 16th, 2013 - For thirty-one months, now, in the Doctor's Data v Barrett Federal Court case, we've been watching Stephen Barrett try desperately to delay the inevitable demise of his quackwatch operation. 

He's failing. 

The other Defendants in the case, the National Council Against Health Fraud Inc (NCAHF), and Quackwatch, Inc. are VERY, VERY worried - and they certainly should be, for nothing is going their way.

Nothing.

Thirty-one months ago, on Friday June 18th, 2010, Doctor's Data Laboratory filed an eleven count lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois against Stephen Barrett, MD, the National Council Against Health Fraud Inc (NCAHF), Consumer Health Digest, and Quackwatch, Inc.

Except for Barrett's direct funding for the lawsuit Defense source, it looks, to me, like every one of his supporters have totally, and completely, abandoned him.  From a flurry of  "skeptic" support articles at first, like this one I talked about, these days you don't hear a word. 

I've written, including this article, forty-nine pieces on this subject, outlining, in very interesting detail, the assault on Barrett and his sleaze operation.  Click on any of the article titles in the box on the right, all listed in chronological order

So, where are we?

Yes, the case is stuck in Discovery But, what does that mean?

I have here, in my hand, a copy of a document filed with the court by Doctor's Data's attorneys showing the court that Barrett, and all, are REFUSING to answer required Discovery demands.  The document outlines seventy-three (73) specific situations, all of which, themselves, chart the sleazy conspiracy.

I'm not surprised that Barrett, et al, would withhold these documents intentionally, and attempt to face the consequences the federal judge might invoke - like jail time.  For the questions Doctor's Data demands answers to, if answered, would give Doctor's Data's attorneys the evidence they need to, quite rightfully, I think, invoke RICO, both Civil and Criminal.  And, of course, provide the solid evidence a federal jury in this case itself, what it needs to award Doctor's Data the Damages it asks (8.9 million US) including Punitive Damages at three times the actual damage award (26.7 million), for a total of 35.6 million US.

Of course Barrett doesn't have that kind of money, so, as you will read between the lines, so to speak, in the Discovery Demands, you will see that Doctor's Data is looking for the legal "Deep Pockets" behind Barrett - those that DO have the money, and are part of the conspiracy.  MORE

Why Autism is Still With Us...

And What Do We Do About It?

December 16th, 2012 - From over here in what's called "The North American Health Freedom Movement" we see Autism (and the other neurological disorders) as only two issues: (1) What's causing it, and how do we stop that? and (2) how do we repair the children and the families?

Both of these issues are solvable right this minute.  We, as a society, know what causes them, and we know how to fix the children.  So, what are we waiting for?  Why hasn't this problem been solved?

Most of my readership is in what's been falsely labeled as "Alternative Medicine," when, for certain, there is nothing "alternative" about what they do. It is, in fact, "cutting-edge" health care that competes, quite clearly, offering a much better, and more successful philosophy than that which it competes with - the drug industry.

So, why then have I given so much attention, lately, to the problems of Autism and other neurological disorders?

Because, simply, the Autism issue is one that the standard medical paradigm can not, and will not, solve.  It is up to us.  And they, the Autism and other neurologically damaged victims need us very much.

The Autism fight is THE fight involving every facet, and issue, any of us have ever faced, and dealt with.  It has every problem that we in the Health Freedom Movement are accustomed to dealing with.  Autism is a microcosm of health care in the US, and, hence, worldwide.

This is the battle to win.  The place, and time, to engage. 

Here's why...

I've never met a young woman named Cathy Jameson, a mother of Ronan, an Autistic child, but a few days ago, Carol, with just a few words, stopped me dead, in the middle of constructing the rest of this article.  There I was assembling my points, laying out for my readers, the outline of the Autism problem, setting the stage for the means to solve it, when my computer dinged at me, and down in the right corner of my page my email program iconned to me that there was a new article coming in from Age of Autism (AoA).  So, I decided to take a break and see what they had to say.

And, there I met Cathyl Jameson, and, most likely close to two million other mothers of Autistic children, caught in the nightmare.  MORE

Cutting-Edge Cancer Doctor Stanislaw Burzynski Batters Texas Medical Board....

They drop all charges...

November 20th,  2012 - There was a day in Texas when sleaze artist Stephen Barrett could call up the Executive Director of the Texas Medical Board and "arrange" a prosecution of a Texas cutting-edge doctor, even offering his even sleazier "skeptic" companion bobbie baratz as the do-all, be-all, expert witness against that doctor.  Those days are over.  The Texas Medical Board is on a short leash, after an assault by the Texas legislature, at the request of components of the the US Health Freedom Movement.

As you can see below, from an excerpt of an email sent to me by Burzynski's attorney, Rick Jaffee, the Board decided it had other things to do, rather than continue to be mauled by Burzynski's network.  See below:  MORE

About the Wakefield Appeal...

October 30th, 2012 - Today we're going to talk about the Andrew Wakefield versus Brian Deer, et al, case in Texas once again.  As some of you may have heard, a minor problem has popped up.   A judge Dismissed the case on jurisdictional grounds and an Appeal has been filed over that Decision. Jake Crosby over at Age of Autism wrote a very good synopsis of  the situation.  Read it here. I'll explain what's happening legally, below, and tell you what's taking so long.

Background...

You may have read, on the internet somewhere, that the Texas court dismissed Andrew Wakefield's case against Brian Deer and the British Medical Journal on jurisdictional grounds - meaning that the judge decided, in her mind, that Texas was not he right place for such a trial. 

For sure the "skeptic" contingency trumpeted this action everywhere they could.  "Orac" (David Gorski) wrote about it so child-snidely he sounded like somebody wore the same dress to the seventh grade Prom that he did.

I am about to tell you what is really happening.

Although the US Court system is somewhat the same from State to State, and country to country, in those places where the law is based on English Common Law, procedural differences do happen - so everything is not EXACTLY the same everywhere.   In Texas, unlike many other States, to file an Appeal of a State Court Decision to an formal Appeals Court one must first file a "Notice of Appeal," wait for the Appeals court to get records from the original court, then they can file the actual Appeal documents, noting the reasons for Appeal.

To date the "Notice of Appeal" has been filed, and the Appeals court is in the process of gathering records.

I've read the documents that will be submitted in the actual Appeal.  There is no question that the original judge erred in the Dismissal.  Once the Appeals Court has the actual Appeal documents I predict the case will be remanded back to the original court for trial - sort of.

Sort of?  Yes.  Wakefield's attorneys are petitioning for a new judge, and they'll get it.

What is the substance of the Appeal?  MORE

 

Australian Skeptics Dragged into Court over Rape, Mutilation,  and Death Threats Against the Australian Vaccination Network Leadership...

October 14th,  2012 - Sometimes I have to tell a horror story.  This one sort of is.

My readership, for the most part, are the kind of people who would be welcome, so to speak, in my Living Room anytime.  Why?  Because I have found that the Health Freedom Movement, worldwide, is made up of people who share certain core values with me.  Since the alliance between the Health Freedom Movement and the Autism world began it became also obvious that the leadership in the Autism Movement are similar people.   I have found that, for good reason, I like them and value them.  I have offered to help them, and bring my friends to help them.  Yes, of course we are all working together - and it gets better every day.

One consistent situation becomes obvious in both Movements.  Both groups embrace a core Judeo/Christian Ethic, a sense of right and wrong, an embedded obligation to help others, right wrongs, solve social problems, and generally do the right thing.

I consistently point out that the opposites in our political arguments are NOT the same kind of people we are.  To say, kindly, that these people do NOT embrace the Judeo/Christian Ethic is an all-time understatement.  What is difficult to display in my writings, is a frame of reference, a point where we can examine what makes up the psyche of the quackbuster/skeptic persona - and then to look beyond them to discover who it is, exactly, that employs them to do what they do.  It is important to know this, and understand it, for we must know our enemy to defeat them.

And, defeat them we must.  And we do.

In my series on who the quackbuster/skeptics really are I ask the question:

"What kind of people would create this horror for Americans and others around the world? Who would do this to other humans?.  Are they sociopaths, psychopaths, sub-humans with pervasive personality disorders?

Today's story is one of horror.  It will be VERY DISTURBING to most of my readers.  For, even as never before, with this example, it graphically identifies the core values of the quackbuster/skeptics.  It depicts who they really are.

I apologize, in advance, for what you are about to read, but someone must expose this situation.  No matter how uncomfortable the information we need to see, for ourselves, exactly what we are dealing with, so we can make decisions on how to proceed.

So, let's proceed...  MORE

Doctor's Data v Barrett Case  - The Discovery Dam Has Been Burst...

Part Four:  Judge orders Barrett to bare his....

October 2nd, 2012 - ...Tax Returns.

Some days I think that Stephen Barrett, the National Council Against Health Fraud (NCAHF), Quackwatch, Inc, and the entire legal team defending him, don't really focus, so much, on defending themselves from the brutal legal assault by Doctor's Data engendered by the Doctor's Data v Barrett, Federal Court case as they do on trying to keep information away from me, Tim Bolen.  I'll show you what I mean.

They seem to think that if I, Tim Bolen, get a hold of some information about them that that information will appear in, or attached to, an article I write for my newsletter.  They sort of say so, in their court documents.

Of course it will....

So, its no surprise to me that the entire team of Barrett's lawyers seem to have spent most of a full day's combined energy trying to convince the judge in the case to ONLY allow Doctor's Data to examine Stephen Barrett's personal income tax returns in their legal offices.  Get a mind picture of thick black drapes over the windows, low lighting making flashlights necessary, white noise units running to prevent overhearing of words in a room, armed security guards with a photo of me, Tim Bolen, in their pockets, a helicopter circling overhead.

I guess I'm not going to see his tax returns - THIS TIME.  Or, maybe I will - after all, Barrett is not that bright.  So far, It's been really easy to uncover his activities.

But the fact is, that the new judge in the case has ORDERED Barrett to provide copies of his tax returns, all the way back to the year 2000, to Doctor's Data for their examination.  More, the judge has allowed additional Discovery Time should those returns provide any new areas of interest.  And yes, Doctor's Data will have to go to Barrett's Chicago attorneys offices to see them - and, probably, bring their own flashlights.

Uh-huh....  MORE

Doctor's Data v Barrett Case  - The Discovery Dam Has Been Burst...

Part One:  The privilege removal.

September 8th, 2012 - Things are about to get VERY, VERY bad for Stephen Barrett, his co-conspirators, minions, and supporters.  The judge in the Doctor's Data v Barrett case has come down hard, very hard, on Stephen Barrett and the other Defendants regarding their refusal to provide Discovery documents demanded by the Plaintiff Doctor's Data's attorneys.

The judge's Order to Compel carries significant penalties, including the threat of arrest of Barrett, under the "Contempt of Court" rules, for failure to comply with the Order.  And they, the Defendants, have only until September 12th, 2012 (four days from now), to clean up their act.

On August 27th, and 29th, 2012 attorneys for Doctor's Data, Augustine, Kern and Levens, Ltd., filed two separate Motions to Compel, asking the Judge to force Stephen Barrett to comply with Discovery demands.  The Motions separately complained that Barrett had been given one hundred twenty three (123) discovery demands, and to date, had only partially answered eleven (11) of them, claiming various ludicrous "privileges" for not answering one hundred and twelve (112) of them. 

Motions to Compel are NOT common.  Orders to Compel, by judges, are even less common.  I'm going to show you the judge's actual written Order just below.  Although the wording seems simple, and it is, it is the equivalent of the judge taking Barrett by the throat, shaking him, and saying "You are about one inch away from jail, asshole..."

Motion hearing held. Plaintiffs motion to compel pertaining to privilege issues [131] is granted. Defendant is ordered to confirm by the end of today whether it has redacted any documents on the basis of a privilege claim. Any documents redacted on that basis must be identified on a privilege log to be provided to Plaintiff by 9/12/12. Defendant is directed to produce un-redacted versions of documents redacted on the basis of relevance to Plaintiff by 9/12/2012. With respect to documents withheld on the basis of a common interest privilege, the parties are granted leave to file submissions, by 9/12/12, addressing the application of that privilege to any documents withheld by Defendant on the basis of a common interest privilege claim. Plaintiffs motion to compel pertaining to financial documents [141] remains under advisement pending further consultation between the parties, as discussed in court. Status hearing set for 9/19/2012 at 9:00 a.m.

The judge's Order in the "Privilege" issue is absolutely, without question, the worst thing that could EVER have happened to Barrett, his co-conspirators, minions, and supporters.  For here, the judge has validated one hundred twenty (120) of the one hundred twenty three (123) discovery demands of the Plaintiff Doctor's Data's attorneys, and is looking CAREFULLY at the remaining three.

In this article we will only look at the first Motion.  Part Two will deal with the other.  MORE

"We Interrupt This Broadcast..."

Total Victory in Texas - Austin Autism Care Clinics' Jesus Caquias MD Totally Exonerated...

August 7th, 2012 - The empire that, for years, was constructed around Stephen Barrett of Quackwatch infamy is crumbling rapidly.  Barrett, himself, is being sued into oblivion in the Doctor's Data v Barrett federal court case in Chicago.  As we sit here reading Barrett's life is being torn to bits - as well it should be.  And his minions are not far behind.

It's happening.

Now, I'm going to tell you about one of the MOST important cases involved in the destruction of Barrett and his minions and paymasters - The Texas Medical Board v. Jesus Caquias MD case, and its finale.  Barrett, and company, desperately needed a win here - and they didn't get it - not even close.  MORE

"Amazing" Meeting - Randi Gathers the Orcs...

July 12th,  2012 - Every year, for several years now, James Randi, he who calls himself "The Amazing Randi," and his James Randi Educational Foundation (JREF) puts on a so-called "skeptic" (pseudo-skeptic) event in Las Vegas, where he invites, and gets, a coterie of weirdos slithering into a four-day meeting where they can lick his feet. 

This year's event happens July 12th through the 15th.

The event program shows that the meeting has three purposes:  (1)  recruiting new soldiers,  (2)  training the underlings to function on the internet, and (3)  establishing authoritarian roles.

Certainly it gives a new, unwanted mind-picture of the phrase "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas."  Kind of makes you want to know how strong a soap they use to wash the sheets in the hotel rooms after these entities slide back into the underground.

Who does the event attract?  Well, listen, perhaps once again, to the audio tape, here, of James Randi soliciting sex from a young boy, and all will be revealed to you.

But I will be blunt.  This whole "skeptic" (pseudo-skeptic) thing is a bought and paid for misinformation campaign making use of society's dregs.  The two largest "skeptic" groups combine a top-secret anonymous income (IRS 990 Schedule B) of over five million dollars a year to maintain what they do.  And, it is not hard, once you examine their actual output what, and who, is providing that five million.  MORE

Mercury in Vaccine PUSHERS Not Doing Well at UNEP (4) - Despite Desperate Moves...

June 29th,  2012 - Two important DESPERATE attempts by the Vaccine PUSHERS  to stop UNEP from banning Thimerosal in Vaccines are not working.

The FIRST thing - On June 1st, 2012, the American Academy of Pediatrics, Big Pharma's tip-of-the-spear Vaccine Front, began to almost beg its allies around the world to come to the assistance of the Vaccine Industry at the UNEP Mercury (4) meeting. 

Why?  Because UNEP (4) has on its agenda the permanent banning of Thimerosal (deadly mercury) in vaccines - for all time.  The AAP issued a "Breaking News" report, whining, and whimpering even in the article's title "Ban on all mercury-based products would risk global immunization efforts, says AAP, WHO"  They called upon all of their health agencies world wide to disseminate their message.

It is not readily known why the Vaccine Industry, and its connected US government agencies, want to keep DEADLY mercury in vaccines - but there are some strong suspicions along racial and ethnic lines.  When mercury was banned in US/Canadian childhood vaccines back in 2003/2004 all those heavily mercury laden pustule packages were dumped on the African continent, Arabia, and in Latin Central and South America.

And now, as we watch, those three areas of the world make up a significant, dominating, voting block at UNEP (4).  For some reason those groups (sarcasm intended) aren't happy about the health effects those disability/death gob filled syringes (labeled "Vaccines") are having on their population.

At UNEP (3) Big Pharma even brought in Bill Gates (snort) to speak to the Delegates.  Bill told everyone, sternly, that mercury in vaccines was necessary, blah, blah, blah...  I'm told that one Delegate, after hearing Bill's speech commented "Now I know why when Microsoft comes out with a new Windows version it never works..."

The SECOND thing - This, you are not going to believe.  MORE

Cornering a Rat...

An Update on the Doctor's Data v Barrett Federal Court Case

June 10th,  2012 - There hasn't been a lot to report on in the famous Doctor's Data v Barrett, et al, federal court case, lately.  They are in the "Discovery " phase, and, as expected, Stephen Barrett, through his legal team, is screeching, and lashing out, like a cornered rat.

Doctor's Data's legal team has had to put on protective clothing, so to speak.

Barrett's lead legal counsel (snort here) Michael K. Botts, Esq, is, already a known piece of work.  But, in "Discovery" Botts comes into his own.  And, I have to laugh at how easily Jeff Levens, Doctor's Data's lead counsel, slaps him around.  I thoroughly enjoyed reading all those legal documents filed by both sides.  What a hoot.

Legal documents?  Well, sort of - Botts, on behalf of Barrett, seems to believe that the louder he yells, the worse his behavior, the nastier he talks, the more crap he flings, that somehow, this will extricate Barrett from his desperate predicament.

The fact that none of  these tactics have worked so far in this case seems to escape Bott's notice.  But, at least he is consistent. 

And, I just realized, Botts, in his actions, is acting just like an average Skeptic (pseudo-skeptic).  MORE

Yup, That's My Kid...

May 17th,  2012 - There was an uproar several months ago when the US Congress passed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) and there was a section in it (1021) that said, according to Wikipedia:

" includes the power to detain, via the Armed Forces, any person "who was part of or substantially supported al-Qaeda, the Taliban, or associated forces that are engaged in hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners", and anyone who commits a "belligerent act" against the U.S. or its coalition allies in aid of such enemy forces, under the law of war, "without trial, until the end of the hostilities authorized by the [AUMF]".

Congress, and the President, it seems, had shut down another piece of the US Constitution.  It was time for activists, especially those that questioned the activities of US government agencies, to step back and take a hard look at what was about to happen.  The question?  Could this law be used against us? 

It sure looked like it, especially to those of us familiar with the gun toting fools at the FDA, or the fully militarized Public Health Service (yes, they are a military organization, and yes, they do wear military uniforms) that the possibilities were daunting.

What possibilities?  Well, every time we turned around, over the last few years, some government agency was declaring another pandemic, declaring that the newest flu strain was going to end mankind as we know it, and demanding MANDATORY vaccinations of, and for, EVERYONE. 

We beat all those back.

But, what if, suddenly, those same alarmists declared that this flu was a product of a terrorist organization?  Would our attempts to stave off this crap end with us being picked up by the military, never to be seen again?

Hmmmm....

Everybody I talked to, no matter which political side of an argument, was concerned - right and left alike.  The question was "What are we going to do?"

Well, We Needn't Have Worried...

My daughter Jennifer (Tangerine) was already on it.  MORE

REAL Scientific Journals Don't Lie - Mercury in Vaccines is BAD For You...

But There is Relief...

May 3rd,  2012 - I have here, below, an important article about a recent peer-reviewed study in the very prestigious scientific journal Acta Neurobiologiae Experimentalis The study shows, very clearly, that there are significantly elevated levels of male hormones (testosterone) in patients who display autistic traits as a result of autism, Asperger’s syndrome, or other pervasive development disorders.   Always. 

And, this situation needs to be dealt with.

The study is called - "An evaluation of the role and treatment of elevated male hormones in autism spectrum disorders."

The study concludes:

"Given the association between elevated levels of male hormones (known as hyperandrogenism) and autism spectrum disorders, the article recommends routine screenings of hormone levels for patients diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders and, as necessary, appropriate treatment for elevated androgens."

When you match this study up with an earlier study showing that mercury in vaccines is a major  "hormone disruptor" in the body, no one will be surprised that elevated testosterone levels, in both male and female children, cause significant problems. 

In boys, which outnumber girls five-to-one in the Autism Spectrum Disorder numbers, it is far too common to find early puberty at six years old; boys developing pubic hair, erections, masturbation, and aggressive physical behavior aimed at their siblings, parents, teachers, etc. - including extremely damaging violence.

Yes, this is a very big problem in Autism.  Mercury is causing it, and, with appropriate treatment, it is reversible.

Before I start explaining the study...   MORE

Doctor's Data Seeks Federal Court Shutdown Order for Barrett-Quackwatch-Skeptics...

April 19th,  2012 - Most of my readers are quite familiar with the sleazy antics of Stephen Barrett and his coterie.  So what I tell you today will be no surprise.  No surprise at all.

But before I tell you about what just happened in the Doctor's Data versus Stephen Barrett Federal court case I want to familiarize you with Federal Law  18 USC § 1512 - Tampering with a witness, victim, or an informant

Just below are important excerpts from that law, relevant to this article:

(b) Whoever knowingly uses intimidation, threatens, or corruptly persuades another person, or attempts to do so, or engages in misleading conduct toward another person, with intent to—

(1) influence, delay, or prevent the testimony of any person in an official proceeding;

(2) cause or induce any person to—

(A) withhold testimony, or withhold a record, document, or other object, from an official proceeding;

(B) alter, destroy, mutilate, or conceal an object with intent to impair the object’s integrity or availability for use in an official proceeding;

(C) evade legal process summoning that person to appear as a witness, or to produce a record, document, or other object, in an official proceeding; or

(D) be absent from an official proceeding to which such person has been summoned by legal process; or

shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both.

(c) Whoever corruptly—

(1) alters, destroys, mutilates, or conceals a record, document, or other object, or attempts to do so, with the intent to impair the object’s integrity or availability for use in an official proceeding; or

(2) otherwise obstructs, influences, or impedes any official proceeding, or attempts to do so, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both.

 

(d) Whoever intentionally harasses another person and thereby hinders, delays, prevents, or dissuades any person from—

(1) attending or testifying in an official proceeding; or attempts to do so, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 3 years, or both.

What happened in Court...

Recently filed Court documents clearly show that Doctor's Data is asking the Judge in the case to put a stop to Barrett, and his cronies, intimidating witnesses and prospective witnesses in the Doctor's Data v Stephen Barrett Federal court case MORE

Who in the Hell is Brian Deer?...

March 16th, 2012 - To a lot of us in the North American Health Freedom Movement, meeting with the Autism Parents opened up a whole new world of intrigue and manipulation focused at the victims of Autism Spectrum Disorder.  That intrigue and manipulation itself is familiar to us in the Movement, for, as we found out quickly after meeting the Autism Parents, the same predators, operating in the same way, used the same techniques - but this time, simply trying to cover up the fact that Vaccines are causing major worldwide health problems, and not "saving humanity" as the Vaccine Construction" claims.

Of course vaccines cause Autism, and inflict one in six children with neurological disorders.  Yes, Big Pharma lies about that, and yes, of course, the government agencies that "we the people" put in place to stop this sort of thing from happening have been co-opted by the very industry that they are supposed to regulate.  So, what's new about that?  It is a fact of life here in the United States.  Move on.  Deal with it.

But, for us in the Movement, there is a learning curve.  We needed to get up to speed on the existing situations extant in the Autism issue.  And, as we soon found out, among other things, there is this big fight going on over a peer-reviewed paper written way-back-when, and published in a journal called Lancet in Great Britain.  That paper has had quite a bit of British media surrounding it, and, in short, caused significant controversy in Great Britain.  It's in this venue that Brian Deer, from Britain, comes into play,

Now let's put all this into perspective so we can look at this situation in the proper light...

Why is this situation important in the Autism community - and why the is this situation important to the Health Freedom Movement?

At first I was a bit baffled that anything occurring in Britain would be of any interest to us here in the US, so I took a "so what?" approach.  After all "we the people" kind of told Britain way back in 1776, that we don't really give a big rat's ass about much of anything that Britain thought or wanted, and nicely, at gunpoint, told them to stay the hell out of our affairs.  And, when they came back in 1812 all huffy about being rebuffed, in their Red Coats, we shot them when and where we found them, buried them shallow, and planted corn.

Consider, of course, that Britain, for all its claimed majesty, is geographically smaller than most counties in California.  And, since the weather there is abysmal, most people there hibernate - contrast that, of course, to California where we are one-with-the-sun.  When the Brits do come out to find a fish-and-chips place they are each photographed, by the security cameras surrounding them, more times than Lindsey Lohan, boobies bouncing, coming out of rehab.  The British government is the epitome of paranoia.  They trust their citizenry, obviously, not-all-all.

I thought, when I first read about all those security cameras, that all that photo security was a bit overdone, and of course, it is.  But then I started taking a look at this Brian Deer character, and it began to dawn on me that there just might be some justification for keeping photographic track of certain kinds of people.

Keep in mind that I have been investigating, very carefully, the group that calls itself "the skeptics."  There was a time, early in my investigation, when I considered attending, quietly, a local skeptic meeting.  But, I thought about what I was uncovering about them, and decided that there was a good chance, even here in the US, that local law enforcement might be photographing everyone that goes in and out of one of their meetings.   MORE

The Forming Alliance  - Health Freedom Movement Joining with Autism Parents...

The World has Gone Crazy - It is time to fix it...

February 24th,  2011 - The social situation of Autism is a microcosm of what is going on in our current world.  There was a time, not that long ago, when America stood for good things on Planet Earth.  Now, of course, we are not there.  Our government has been usurped, as Michael Moore says, "by the 1%."  And that 1% has no moral code whatsoever.  To them life, except for their own, is of no importance.  Wants and needs of a population are of no concern to them.  It is all about power and control.  And making money.

On the flip side, anyone with a brain can see the revolution in the streets.  The message of the Occupy and the Tea Party movements, although appearing to be from different parts of our society, is too close to call them separate movements.  Revolution is building.  MORE

I Found The Quackbuster Money Trail...

January 9th, 2012 - For years I have been monitoring the operations of a group that originally called itself the "Quackbusters." 

The name was a play on the popularity of the movie "Ghostbusters."  The reality is that there was, and is now, an organized conspiracy, centered in the US, to control, through information manipulation, certain aspects of health care. 

The plot has always been pretty much the same - the attacking and discrediting of people, organizations, ideas, concepts, etc., that challenge the highly profitable, but dangerous, and ineffective, US health care system.  In short they are simply a misinformation campaign.

The Quackbusters have had limited success in their campaigns, usually fooling only the least informed of the population.  But they have caused significant damage to that same population in those areas where they have been successful - like Autism - where they have successfully, so far, prevented an official understanding of the cause of Autism, and hence, prevented solution of the problem of Autism and other Neurological issues.

My regular readers know that for years, I have taken on, in my professional Crisis Management Consultant role, this so-called "Quackbuster" operation with success.  I am, without doubt "Public Enemy Number One" in quackbuster land.  I also encourage, and support, others to deal with this conspiracy up front, rather than just focusing on defending against the attacks.  To me, it is important to make the "Quackbusters," individually, and in their conspiracy, not just PART of the argument, but the ENTIRE argument in any case.

Has this been successful?  Yes, it has, for the result is that the older version of the quackbuster conspiracy, for the most part, is completely gone in more ways than one:  (1)  the original players have disappeared into the woodwork, so to speak, and (2)  their replacements, for the most part, are so scared of being personally "outed" they HIDE behind fake names, fake identities, etc.

I'll explain this power shift in the quackbuster ranks, and how it all works, below.  Why?  Because it is time to shut this whole operation down and see about putting their key people where they belong. 

Constantly I am asked, referring to what is commonly called the Quackbuster operation, "Who's paying these people to do this stuff? 

Well, now I know the answer to that question, and shortly, after some simple reading, so will you...  MORE

Maryland Board of Physicians Seeks a Whitewash...

December 4th,  2011 - Health care is a serious business, but sometimes I just have to laugh out loud at the antics of those "we the people" have been dumb enough to entrust with administrative function in our health care system - example:  The Maryland Board of Physicians.

As we all know, the Maryland legislature issued a two-hundred page report virtually declaring the physician board incompetent last week, and hearings have been scheduled to bring the board to task.

So, what is the board's response to the legislature's blast?  Two parts:  (1)  "We're doing just fine.  The legislature doesn't know what they are talking about.  Look at how we went after the Geiers," and (2)  "We should bring in an expert to help us get organized..."

So what expert does the board, represented by Joshua Scharfstein, want to bring in?  Read the excerpt from the Baltimore Sun, just below:  MORE

CDC Tells Federal Court -  "FOIA Means Nothing to Us.  We'll Withhold Whatever We Want..."

November 12th,  2011 - This article is a direct follow-up to an article I wrote October 4th, 2011 titled "The CDC Has Known All Along How Dangerous Vaccines Are - And Has Covered It Up... (Part One)" where I explained about Brian Hooker PhD's lawsuit against the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for withholding public information he, and every American citizen, is entitled to under the US Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA).  Brian Hooker has been investigating the five so-called "studies" the CDC claims prove that Thimerosal in vaccines does not cause Autism nor neurological disorders.

Today I will tell you the CDC's formal response.  The title of this article pretty well sums up the CDC position.  Will they get away with this?  Nope.  Keep reading.

Laying the groundwork...

First, let me tell you about Julie Gerberding, the head of the CDC from 2002 through 2009.  She was running things at CDC when Brian Hooker PhD began making his FOIA requests - and was being stonewalled.  She was there for seven years.

President Obama fired her as head of CDC in early 2009.  Within just a few weeks Gerberding went from that $250,000 per year CDC salary to become the president of Merck's Vaccine Division at an estimated salary of $2,500,000 per year.

Nice, huh?   Gets fired - three weeks later gets a job that pays ten (10) times what she made in the government. (squint your eyes, and wrinkle your nose here - as though there was a bad smell suddenly in the room.).  MORE

Will the Top Skeptic "Amazing Randi" Be Federally Indicted in Florida?

October 23rd, 2011 - It's looking good for that.  Hooray.  I'll explain below.

I have absolutely no use for the group that describes themselves as "Skeptics."  The group, made up, I believe, of life's flotsam and jetsam, inhabits the internet after a minimal training at some skeptic conference teaching them how to be even nastier, sleazier, human beings than they were before they found the organized clutter based out of Amherst, New York.  This group is reinforced by a five foot tall moron who calls himself "The Amazing Randi." 

Randi, in his megalomania, has actually, magically I guess, created himself as an arbiter of all things, even publicly offering the occasional "Million Dollar Challenge," setting up (laugh here) parameters in his challenge which allow him, and him alone, to change those parameters as he goes along, eliminating, of course, the possibility of anyone being able to collect on the so-called million.  Don't be surprised - this gambit is a cornerstone of this form of skepticism.

More, Randi, astoundingly, actually found someone to fund, and help him set up (get ready to choke with laughter) the "James Randi Educational Foundation (JREF)".  Before you laugh too loudly I want you to take a look at an attached document called an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Form 990.  JREF reported, in 2010, a total income of $999,971.00 and a Total Asset claim of $1,736,101.  Click here to see the available JREF Form 990.

Under the JREF Form 990 Summary Section - Box One, asking for the organization's mission, JREF answers "To promote critical thinking and investigate claims of the paranormal."

All of the Form 990 for JREF is not available to the public.  One section called the Form Schedule B, a list of, with addresses and amounts, of contributors who individually contribute over $5,000 is not there. 

So, recently, I sent an email to James Randi asking:   MORE

Doctor's Data v Barrett - Why the Wait?

October 9th, 2011 - The last real activity in the Doctor's Data v Stephen Barrett  Federal court case, besides the monthly re-scheduling of Status Hearings, was last July, 2011. I wrote about that:

"The legal arguments, at this point, are over the "Motion to Dismiss" filed by Stephen Barrett's legal team.  Barrett, it appears, is claiming that he is IMMUNE to lawsuits because, in his own words, he is "Assisting Government." (don't laugh - he is dead serious). 

More, it is clear, that Barrett was originally demanding that the US Federal court formally declare him to be the "Czar/God of US health care." (envision the word MEGALOMANIA here - like in sky-writing).

But, the last few documents filed by Barrett, it appears to me, have lost their demanding, condescending tone.  They have settled into a whine - sort of an effort to snivel, whimper, bleat, blubber, and mewl, hoping, as it were, to beseech the court for mercy - so he, Barrett, can live another day, legally - avoiding, what for him, would be the process of self-extinction - "Discovery."   That "Discovery" would be a course of action where Barrett would have to reveal the names and activities of his masters and co-conspirators."

So, what IS happening?  Why is there no activity?   MORE

US Federal Agents Arrest Top "Skeptic..."

September 17th, 2011 - Fortunately, or unfortunately, depending on how you look at things, I, Tim Bolen, have become a primary information source about an organization that, for purposes of intentional misinformation, calls itself "the quackbusters."

I have OTHER NAMES  for them.  So do their victims.  Some of those names, but not most, can be used in polite company.

Again, unfortunately, a current definition of who and what these people are, is not information that sits comfortably with most of my readers.  Why?  Because what I am about to tell you is not conversation for a family Sunday Dinner Table.

The audio tapes, and the video tapes, I link to, to make my case, so-to-speak, will make most people physically ill.  But they clearly identify, in strong graphic rendition, exactly what the psychological makeup of the current quackbuster operation actually is.

But, one must know the enemy.  Even if it's just to know their neck size for the noose, so to speak.  MORE

Vaccines - The Emperor Has No Clothes...

August 26th,  2011 - On Thursday, August 18th, 2011, a meeting was held in Washington, DC hosted by  John Thompson - Deputy Director, Office of Environmental Policy, U.S. Department of State.  It was very eventful.

The fact that the meeting happened at all cascaded shock waves through the vaccine promotional community.  Why?  Because the reality of this meeting, and where the vaccine situation is heading, shows that the carefully contrived world of vaccine promotion is crumbling - and, hopefully, it will never recover.

The official reason for the meeting, called a "US State Department Listening Meeting" was primarily about the presentation of several NGOs (Non Government Organizations) each of whom have a seat at the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) on mercury in the environment, alongside the US State Department. 

Those NGOs take a completely different position, in fact in total opposition, to certain official US government agencies, and pharmaceutical trade groups, on the issue being addressed at the UN meeting - mercury in the world environment.

The four groups (NGOs) were speaking on two separate aspects of the issues surrounding the removal of mercury in medicine:  (1)  mercury in vaccines: represented by the Coalition for Mercury-free Drugs (CoMeD), and SafeMinds, (2)  and mercury amalgam dental fillings:  represented by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT), and Consumers for Dental Choice.
 

The NGOs had the science.  The opposition sort of remembered to come to the meeting.   MORE

The Vaccine Industry's Campaign to Destroy Mark and David Geier is Failing Miserably ...

August 2nd,  2011 - The pseudo-skeptic weenies that write (and band together to get Google ranking)  about Mark and David Geier would like their readers to believe that dire things are happening to the father and son nemeses of the vaccine industry.  They will tell you, for instance, that more and more States are taking Mark Geier's medical licenses away - blah, blah, blah...

It is all just a ruse to damage the Geiers.  And, it is not working.

The truth of the situation is something completely different.  Because of the Maryland Privacy Rule I cannot tell you everything that is going on in that medical board case.   All other medical boards are awaiting the outcome of  the Maryland case.

Maryland law is very clear - and the Medical Board has no chance of winning.  It is just a matter of time.  I'll be doing a separate article on this. 

But, time has run out for the vaccine industry.  Their attempt to discredit the Geiers, before something happened on the world scene, has flopped.  Why do I say that?

The answer is in the Press Release below - sent out by CoMed yesterday.  In short, The United Nations Environmental Program on mercury has taken the Geier's "mercury in vaccines" recommendations and made them part of the United Nations plans for the elimination of mercury in the environment - a massive victory for both the Geiers and the Coalition for Mercury-free Drugs (CoMed).  MORE

The Victory in Texas Was Not Enough...

June 27th, 2011 - There is a story circulating around the internet based on an article originating from the American Association of Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) website, talking about the legislative victory in Texas recently.  I don't disagree with the story.  Yes, it was a victory - but it simply wasn't enough.

It was a compromise solution which left the corrupt system in Texas in place  More needs to be done.

In short, our bill HB 1030 passes the House 147 to 0 - but was blocked in the Senate.  The compromise bill, which DID pass both houses was called HB 680.  I'll explain more below.

For reference on this issue read my earlier article "In Texas..."  MORE

The Fundamental Issues Coming Up in the Geier Case...

June 16th,  2011 - A hearing will begin in Maryland in front of an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) tomorrow morning (June 17th, 2011) to determine whether, or not, the Maryland Board of Physicians had justifiable cause to immediately suspend Mark Geier MD's medical license.  The hearing could last up to a week before all of the world-class Geier witnesses could be heard.

But, in essence, what is really happening here is that the State of Maryland has a structure in place for this sort of situation - sort of a check and balance system.  The legal question to be adjudicated at this hearing is NOT whether or not Mark Geier MD did anything wrong in his medical practice, but whether the Maryland Board of Physicians followed "due process," in yanking his license in this "emergency" manner.

And, the Maryland Board of Physicians is stumbling big time. MORE

About Kathleen Seidel - Would You Leave Your Child in This Woman's Day Care Center?

June 2nd,  2011 - In an earlier article "The Attack on Mark and David Geier,"  I wrote about the basis for the attack on Mark Geier MD - the original Formal Complaint filed against them by a woman named Lisa Randall, the mouthpiece for a national vaccine promo group.

That Complaint was based, totally, on the writings of one Kathleen Seidel pictured, from a New York Magazine article at the right, who fashions herself as a spokesperson for what she describes as the neurodiverse.

Seidel vehemently attacks scientists like the Geiers from her internet perch, her neurodiversity blog.  Her claim is that "brain damage is a gift," and that Autism is misunderstood, for, in her view it represents (get this...) the next step in the evolution of humanity.  She claims that people like the Geiers are violating the rights of the brain-damaged, and they must be stopped. 

Seidel has devoted most of the waking hours of her life, since late 2005, to damaging the Geiers in any way she can.  For the most part, that is ALL her blog is about.  Twenty-eight strange-weird articles about the Geiers alone.  Can you spell cyberstalker?

Where are the men with the nets when you need them?  MORE

Top Pseudo-Skeptic, Steven Novella, Humiliated on National TV...

And it was fun to watch...

May 7th, 2011 - Dr. Oz, on one of his shows, had invited one of the top Icons in the self-styled "Skeptic" internet movement, Steven Novella MD, to debate Alternative Medicine.  Oz, literally, made a fool of Novella - or, perhaps, I should say "Oz let Novella show what a fool he actually is..."

I chuckled all the way through the show.   MORE

"Free Speech about Science Act of 2011" - ANH Takes Lead...

April 6th, 2011 -Sometimes we all forget how very large the North American Health Freedom Movement actually is.  Sometimes, because of its sheer size it becomes unwieldy. But, for certain, there are those that, every day, see something that needs doing - and simply do it first, reminding us all what we need to do next.

The Alliance for Natural Health (ANH) took the lead, this week, in the North American Health Freedom ventures when they announced support for, and energized their membership, to support "The Free Speech about Science (FSAS) Act, HR 1364." 

Good for them. 

Here's what their article led off with.  MORE

Attorney Botts MISSING - Barrett's Legal Life In Hands of Rookie...

March 28th, 2011 - It's laughter time once again in the Doctor's Data v Barrett Federal court case in Illinois. 

Not long ago Stephen Barrett's legal team (snort here) went to court to get a ten day extension to answer an answer to a Motion.  They said it was necessary to get more time so as to answer Doctor's Data's Official Response to their own Motion to Dismiss, claiming that the Response was "so very long."  They got the ten days.

Today they finally submitted their paperwork, and lo and behold, it was written, not by Michael K. Botts, Esq, Barrett's so-called "lead attorney," but by one of the Chicago firm's people, an attorney who just got their Bar license not long ago - and apparently has nor experience on this kind of law.

So, where's Botts?  As I said in an earlier article:

"The Motion For Extension of Time was filed by the Chicago attorneys.   Barrett's so-called lead attorney, Michael K. Botts, seems to have disappeared, and if he's working at all, it may be out of the trunk of his car - since it was pointed out in the Plaintiff's Objection to an Extension of Time, that Botts is NOT working at the law office, anymore, that he claimed he worked at, at the beginning of the case."

So, what was the essence of Stephen Barrett's paperwork this time?  Same as before - they claim that Barrett is not defaming anyone.  He is "helping the government..."so, therefore, "this whole case is a SLAPP and it should be dismissed..."

I love it.  (Insert laughter here) MORE

Health Canada Under Massive Attack by Natural Products Maker...

Sunday, March 20th, 2011 - There is an important Court proceeding coming up this Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011 in a Federal Appeals Court in Calgary, Canada.

Health Canada has already circulated two Memorandums that indicate that it knows they are going to lose this battle - and that loss will radically change the way they have to operate.  I'll show you those memos, near the bottom of this article.

There is no question that Health Canada, the North-of-the-border equivalent of the US FDA, is totally, and completely run by the very drug companies it was designed to regulate.  Just the same, in fact, as the US FDA is. 

Health Canada, like its US FDA counterpart, has a well-lubricated revolving door of drug company executives turned Health Canada leaders, turned back to drug company executives. Continuously.

So, it is no surprise that Health Canada, itself, would take on the thought processes, and the moral lack, of the drug companies themselves.

There is no better example in Canada of how the drug lord run Health Canada operates than to point out how Health Canada attacks competitors to drugs - espoused, for instance, in the infamous raids, and seizures, involving Truehope Nutritional Support ltd, of Alberta, Canada, the manufacturer of EmpowerPlus.

Truehope, as you may remember, was, perhaps, the first natural products company to thrash Health Canada in a courtroom for their actions.  More, they improved their corporate bottom line during the process.  MORE

Barrett's Sweaty Desperation...

March 8th, 2011 - There were two legal filings, recently, in the Doctor's Data v Stephen Barrett Federal Court case.  The first filing was, as expected, Barrett's last-ditch attempt to avoid Discovery - a Motion to Dismiss based on two allegations:  (1) that the Plaintiff failed to make a proper claim (snort), and (2) that the lawsuit violated the Illinois Anti-SLAPP law. 

The second filing, of course, was the answer to the first.

In short, the first filing, authored by Michael K. Botts, Esq., was an angry outburst, poorly researched, badly written piece of pseudo-legal claptrap. 

The second filing, authored by Jeffrey Levens, Esq., was, as we always see, an elegantly crafted, legally spot-on, detailed analysis of the problem at hand.

No competition.  Michael K. Botts, in this case, is being more badly beaten up than during the rip-thrashing he took from the Alternative Medicine world during the infamous Herbert v American Quackery Association - 1987 case.  (smile here).   MORE

Trine Flops, Barrett Stops - All's Not Well in Quackpot Hell...

January 30th, 2011 - Some days it is just way too much fun being an insider in the North American Health Freedom Movement.  I get to see stuff happening right before my eyes, long before others become aware of what's happening.  And, I have to say, there are members of the health movement which have a nasty sense of humor I commend and appreciate.  In this case I use the word "nasty" in a very good way.

There are two things going on surrounding the Doctor's Data v Stephen Barrett Federal Court case, which you will find highly amusing - that is, they are amusing if you are not one of Barrett's masters or minions. - or Barrett.  For them, nothing is funny right now.  (smile here).  MORE

Are Barrett's Handlers About to Buy Off Terry Polevoy?

 December 29th, 2010 - The quackbuster operation is having its woes these days.  It seems that everywhere they turn there is another fire to put out.  It couldn't happen to a nicer bunch...  This particular fire is going to cost Stephen Barrett's handlers over $450,000 US dollars - I'll explain below.

And, much more is coming their way.  As well it should.

A few months ago I wrote an article "Is Terry Polevoy the Information Source for Doctor's Data?..." suggesting that, perhaps, Canada's Terry Polevoy might be an information source for the attorneys representing Doctor's Data against Stephen Barrett, Quackwatch, inc, and the National Council Against Health Fraud (NCAHF).  Frankly, I was joking - for no way would I believe that Polevoy was smart enough to figure out, or use, that kind of lever in his case against his former Co-Plaintiffs in the Barrett v Clark case.

That is - until he, Polevoy, got the idea from the article I wrote.  (smile here).   MORE

Doctor's Data V Barrett, et al - The NCAHF Board Members are Screwed - REALLY Screwed...

November 30th, 2010 - I admit it.  I love telling a good story.  Give me a chance and I'll drag out the good parts, throwing in laughs here and there. The story, of course, I'm telling today is about the Doctor's Data v Stephen Barrett Federal Court case, which is, by far, the most important court case involving health care in North America. 

Today I've got a BIG laugh for you - unless, of course, you are a quackbuster - then you are not going to find this story funny at all - you are going to, once again, call me names - nasty names.  Ready?

Let's go.

The National Council Against Health Fraud (NCAHF), also a Defendant in this case, has a Twenty member Board of Directors.  I have a copy of the last publicly listed Board just below.  In short, they are named in this case because the so-called "Consumer Health Digest," supposedly a weekly newsletter to its approximate 12,000 subscribers, is supposedly a joint effort of Stephen Barrett and the NCAHF, co-edited by Barrett and William London.  Articles in that newsletter are named in the case itself.   MORE

Quackbusters:  Their Fear is Palpable...

October 22nd, 2010 - I monitor, and provoke, sometimes openly, sometimes secretly, the discussion activity of the organization calling itself the "quackbusters."  It is not easy, for, in a way, it is like listening in on a group of pedophiles discussing their plans for our neighborhood children.  Keep this comparison in mind.

Recently, of course, I have been monitoring quackbuster discussions about the Doctor's Data v Stephen Barrett Federal Court case.  MORE

Barrett Gets the Attorney He Deserves...

September 29th, 2010 - I enjoy writing about the Doctor's Data v Barrett case.  Every time I turn around and look to see what's happening another guffaw exits my system, for once more, seemingly out of nowhere sometimes, comes one more patent example that there is, in fact, a divine justice in the world.

For those of you who don't know, Stephen Barrett and his weenie minions, are, for the most part (among other things) Secular Humanists, which, in simple translation, means that they do not believe in a God or religion, nor, to me, do they grasp or embrace the moral and ethical codex that, in essence, in 1776, established the very grounds for the social experiment known as "The United States of America."  They, the Secular Humanists, believe that THEY are Gods unto themselves.  None of them have a clue as to the constraints put on the rest of us by our adherence to the Judeo/Christian Ethic, and how that code applies in ways we treat each other.

Ok, OK...  I promised to make my next article about who the 2010/2011 quackbusters really are, and this little piece isn't actually doing that.  But, think of it as an introduction to where we are going.  That paragraph above, about the Secular Humanist component of the quackbuster operation, sets the stage, as it were, for what's coming.

Divine justice in the world?  Oh yeah.  This case, and all of its development, is clear evidence that there is in fact, a God, and that he/she has a sense of humor. MORE

Is Terry Polevoy the Information Source for Doctor's Data?...

September 12th, 2010 - I read Court documents, including Original Complaints (the lawsuit itself) all of the time.  It occurred to me, when I first read the Doctor's Data v Barrett, Federal Court case that the attorneys writing that case were very well informed about how the quackbusters operate.  I thought to myself "these people must have been reading my newsletters..."  But, as I began to re-read the case several times, looking for stuff to write about, I decided that it was very likely they had a well-informed source of their own  - perhaps someone inside the quackbuster ranks.

As I thought about that I realized that because the upper echelon of the quackbuster operation tend to use their soldiers like Kleenex, there was a very long list of victims that might fit the bill.  As I thought about it I realized that it would have to be somebody who was relatively close to the top of the operation - at the same time disenchanted, for whatever reason, with the people at the top.

The tentative list I put together was large, and included, virtually every member of the old NCAHF Board of Directors (the ones still alive), for, as you can easily see, they, since their usefulness has expired, have been used and thrown in the trash.  You hardly ever hear about William Jarvis since the California Health Freedom Movement worked to get him tossed from Loma Linda University.  And, weird old Wallace Sampson just kind of faded into his own fart pattern.

And then, one day, I realized I hadn't re-visited that lawsuit Terry Polevoy had filed against Stephen Barrett's personal attorney Christopher Grell, and 20 other John Does, in California.  So, I did revisit it - and the light went on.  MORE

Botts and Barrett - Fumble Bumble Stumble Jumble...

August 27th, 2010 - I check my Pacer Account every few days and yesterday found four new filings in the Doctor's Data v Barrett, Federal Court case.  After that I am even more convinced that the script writers for Saturday Night Live are designing Barrett's Defense.

The four documents, all presented by Barrett's three attorneys (actually two-and-a-half - I will explain) tell a story that will somewhat amuse you.  It certainly amused me.

One of the documents, this one filed by Michael K. Botts, Esq. is a plea to the Court for Reconsideration, with explanations, to be allowed to represent Barrett at all.  It seems the Chicago Court rejected Botts.  I will let you read this document shortly. MORE

Federal Summons Issued For NCAHF...

August 18th, 2010 - We have to keep our eye on the Doctor's Data v Barrett, et al, Federal case.  Something new is always happening, or at least brewing.  Here is the latest Pacer record:

"SUMMONS Issued as to Defendant The National Council Against Health Fraud, Inc. (vcf, ) (Entered: 08/11/2010)"

I don't have a copy of the document, because it simply isn't filed in the record, but I imagine it reads very similar to the last one filed against Quackwatch, Inc... MORE

California Supreme Court Bitch-Slaps Stephen Barrett Once Again...

July 25th, 2010 - I find it surprisingly easy to defeat Barrett and his minions.  It's almost like they lead themselves into the slaughterhouse.  And there I stand with an axe...

On July 14th, 2010, a little over a week ago, the California Supreme Court, with virtually no effort on my part, stomped a rancid old fart named Stephen Barrett on my behalf, by the simple act of denying Barrett's Petition to that Court, practically begging the Supreme Court to overturn the earlier Appeals Court Decision upholding the Alameda Superior Court's decision to Dismiss Barrett's case against me.

The Judge in the Superior Court, once again with no effort on my part, had Dismissed the case since, frankly, Barrett, et al, just couldn't seem to get it up enough to pursue the original silliness.  We, on the other hand, spent no effort either.

It has always been my opinion that Stephen Barrett has always wanted to TELL people he is suing me, but actually facing me in Court, or anywhere else, is a whole another matter.  I think it has been a manhood issue with him all along. MORE

Barrett Has Four Days Left - Then He Goes to Default...

July 8th, 2010 - I just checked my "Pacer" (Federal Court information system) file, and Barrett has not yet brought in a lawyer, and filed a response to the Doctor's Data lawsuit against him. Could it be this easy?  Could it be that rancid old Stephen Barrett, when push comes to shove, just could not back up his public statements in a Court of law, and is just going to let the collection agents pick him clean?  Could it be that Doctor's Data will have unlimited access to Barrett's years records showing whom he plotted with?

(I'm really getting all excited thinking about this).

As I said in my last article:

In the Federal Court System a defendant is given 21 full days to properly Respond to a lawsuit.  Let's assume, for the moment, that since Stephen Barrett was sued by Doctor's Data on June 18th, 2010, that he was served with papers on the 19th, the next day.  Counting 21 days from that moment brings us to Monday, July 12th, 2010 - the deadline for Barrett to hire an attorney who can practice in Federal Court in Chicago, Illinois, and prepare, and submit a Response to the Court.  That's eight days from now - and Barrett does not even have an attorney yet.

Well, he only has about four more days...  And, as I indicated:

What happens if Barrett does not Respond?

If Barrett does not Respond then Doctor's Data simply files for what is called a "Default Judgment," asking the Court to award everything they asked for - the Five Million in Damages, the Fifteen Million in Punitive Damages, and a permanent Injunction barring Barrett from talking about Doctor's Data, etc.

The Judge's answer is almost automatic..

So, why hasn't Barrett "lawyered up" and answered?

Let's think about that.  There are probably three main reasons: MORE

Doctor's Data Laboratory Files Federal Lawsuit Against Barrett, Quackwatch, NCAHF, Consumer Health Digest...

June 25th, 2010 - Stephen Barrett, who has no income of his own, he claims, had to go to his wife Judith the other day, I think, and say "Honey, I need an increase in my allowance this month.  I'm getting sued in Fed Court in Chicago now, and I'm going to need $250,000 this month as a retainer, and another $100,000 per month to pay for my Defense, for the next year, or so."

On Friday June 18th, 2010 Doctor's Data Laboratory filed an eleven count lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois against Stephen J. Barrett, MD, the National Council Against Health Fraud Inc (NCAHF), Consumer Health Digest, and Quackwatch, Inc. MORE

Stephen Barrett Rip-Thrashed Once (Twice?) Again..

June 2nd, 2010 - I fully expected a battle royal in a San Diego Federal Courtroom this week with Stephen Barrett.  Barrett had sued Hulda Clark and Carlos Negrete, making some sort of claim or another (I find it hard to tell what Barrett's lawsuits are actually claiming).  I was a major witness scheduled to testify against him and I'd been preparing for weeks going over every piece of evidence I had ever gathered regarding Barrett's activities.  I fully expected to testify for a full day - maybe more.  And,  I had a lot to say.

I even bought a new tie for the occasion. 

But, this afternoon I found out that Barrett, today, came to Court apparently wanting to settle the case.  And Carlos Negrete, apparently in his infinite mercy, agreed to a settlement denying me the opportunity to walk all over Barrett wearing my golf shoes - so to speak..  Worse, Carlos won't even tell me the terms of the settlement.  He says it is confidential.

Carlos Negrete is, I guess, much nicer than I am when it comes to Barrett. MORE

Orac the Nipple Ripper...

November 20th, 2009 - I've been wondering who would pick up the reins of the quackbuster  operation once Stephen Barrett croaks, which could be very soon.   I think I found the candidate.  He's perfect for the job - has all of the right quali-fications, and seems eager to fill the spot.

For years there was a contest, among the quackpot faithful, to be crowned the heir apparent, and many were groomed for the job.  But, problems kept coming up, so there was no obvious Crown Prince. 

Everybody who follows my newsletter could figure out that there were two major candidates vying for the top spot - sometimes even trying to push Stevie off the bus a little early.  I am, of course, referring to Bobbie Baratz, the current president of the National Council Against Health Fraud and Terry Polevoy, Canada's low-budget Barrett copy.

Bobbie Baratz was, for a time, head and shoulders above Polevoy in the race, for he had three doctorate degrees (MD, DDS, and PhD) and he flaunted them in everyone's face, offering himself, just like Barrett did, as a virtual expert in EVERYTHING. 

But, there's a new guy in town... MORE

I Love Being Hated by Quackbusters...

November 12th, 2009 - New Orleans area doctor James Carter MD, PhD, author of the famous book "Racketeering in Medicine," the blatant 1994 expose of the plot to destroy innovation in US health care, called me up one day, several years back, and asked me if I was coming to a certain health convention where he was going to be.

He had me worried for a minute, for I thought that he might be angry at me for I had recently removed him as the "most hated person in quackbuster land," and inserted myself into that position.  After all, there is honor, in certain important circles, in being on Stephen Barrett's website.  The thinking is that the more space you get on Barrett's sleazy pages the more good you must be doing for humanity.  Barrett was giving me lots of space - more than anyone had ever gotten.  I was worried that Jim Carter might be upset with me for pushing him into second position.

But he wasn't.  He wanted me to come and speak to a large group of cutting-edge doctors and he wanted to introduce me personally.  Barrett has no idea, to this day, how much of an honor he had bestowed on me.  I spent a weekend with a group of people who lead the nation, if not the world, in innovative health care thinking.  It was, to say the least, stimulating.  MORE

Will Suzanne Somers New Book on Alternative Cancer Therapies Start the Cancer Revolt?...

October 19th, 2009 - Watch Larry King Friday night, October 23, 2009.  He's interviewing Suzanne Somers about her new book "Knockout," which talks about REAL treatments, ones that actually work, for cancer.  9:00PM EST

The longest running war conducted by the United States is not the war in Iraq, nor the war in .Afghanistan.  It is the "War on Cancer" started, with great fanfare, in 1972, thirty-seven years ago, by President Richard Nixon. It is a complete failure.  The enemy, cancer, continues to gain ground. 

In truth, the only people who benefit from this war are those in the huge, for profit, cancer industry - certainly not cancer victims or their families.  The accepted therapies, those claimed to be "proven," are, in actuality, worthless.  The statistics generated, even though the industry massages them, clearly show that 97.9% people who go the chemotherapy therapy route are dead five years later.  That's correct - chemotherapy only has a 2.1% success rate over five years.  Put in a 2.5% "margin of error" and you've got a big fat zero.

More, the government apparatus we've created to help with this war is no more than a huge "welfare for scientists" program with absolutely nothing to show for their thirty-seven years of existence except higher percentages of cancer deaths. MORE

A4M Sues Wikipedia - Quackbuster(?) PropagandistsTargeted...

September 24th, 2009 - On August 19th, 2009 the American Association of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M) filed suit in a New York State Supreme Court against the Wikimedia Foundation, Inc., (solely as a nominal Defendant) and John or Jane Does 1-10. 

This is a very important case to  anyone involved in health care anywhere in the world..  Why?  Because Wikipedia articles about health care have turned Wikipedia into a propaganda machine - with the full knowledge, and cooperation, of the management of both the Wikipedia Project, and the Wikimedia Foundation.  In short, I believe that Wikipedia is a fraud. MORE

TWO State Supreme Courts Punch Top Quackpot...

February 22nd, 2008 - Delicensed MD Stephen Barrett appears to have fled the State of Pennsylvania for North Carolina, just ahead of the official laughter laid on him by the the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.

The Pennsylvania High Court joins the California Supreme Court in its disdain for Barrett's legal opinions.  Barrett, who among other things, claims to be a "legal expert," has now been officially, and very soundly, had his pants pulled down, and his butt paddled TWICE by America's highest courts. MORE

Quackbuster Attack on NICO Flops...

February 20th, 2008 - I've discovered another quackbuster scam - one to destroy a whole group of US Dentists, the head of a major Dental School, a device manufacturer, and a major emerging dental issue - NICO, and, with some very good help, I've begun the process of breaking up the scam.  I've helped engineer the destruction of about half of the scam already, and the rest is in the works.  We should be finished after a court trial, I'll tell you about shortly,  in April.  With luck, we'll get the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office involved in the clean-up.  MORE

ABC Coding Solutions launches eClaim.biz

 By Edward Johnson, PhD , President ABC Coding Solutions

May 21st, 2007 - A Note to US Health Care Practitioners - After years of coding and system development, legal logic research, wrangling with our federal Department of Health and Human Services, and politicking, ABC Coding Solutions has launched eClaim.biz, the tool that ties together the code and logic into a seamless system.  

ABC has done their share of work to help you; now we ask you to step up to the plate and help solve our US healthcare crisis. You are trained, you are experienced, many of you are licensed – why aren’t you part of the solution? MORE

US FDA:  Maybe It's Time for the Hercules Solution...

April 18th, 2007 - In Greek mythology, Aegeas, the king of Elis, had a vast herd of cattle.  The stables in which they were kept hadn't been cleaned in 30 years. By then it was impossible to clean them and the resulting stench was unbearable.  Hercules, who had been assigned 12 stupendous tasks ("the Labours of Hercules") to be performed in atonement for a crime he had supposedly committed, came on the scene. One of those tasks was to clean the Aegean stables. Hercules did the job in one day by diverting a river to flow thorough the King’s stables.

The phrase "clean the Aegean stables" now means to clear away an accumulated mass of corruption – physical, moral, ethical, legal...

The stench at the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) is unbearable.  The FDA, designed to regulate certain industries in the US, has been taken over, in its entirety, by those industries, who operate the agency for their own benefit.  There is no argument against this statement.    At FDA the tail is wagging the dog.  Americans are being regulated by industries.  It's the way it is. MORE

FDA "Backs Down(?)" Over Deadly Mercury Amalgams...

March 19th, 2007 - One of the biggest scandals in American health care is coming to a head this March 27th, 2007.  In the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, a case, called "Moms Against Mercury, et al., v. FDA" will get its time in the sunlight, and the Defendant, the United States Food & Drug Administration (FDA) isn't doing well in its Defense.

The case is simple.  Citizens are suing the FDA for NOT, during the last THIRTY YEARS, ruling on the safety, or danger, of mercury amalgam tooth fillings.  The Plaintiffs want mercury amalgam tooth fillings banned completely, and forever.

And, the FDA has virtually no defense... MORE

Courts Seize "Quackbuster" Bank Accounts, Property...

February 22nd, 2007 - A few days ago, Christopher Grell, one of the Plaintiffs, and the attorney for the Plaintiffs Stephen Barrett  and Terry Polevoy , filed an emergency Ex Parte Motion with the Alameda, California Trial Court in the Barrett v. Clark (Rosenthal) case asking for a Temporary Restraining Order preventing Defendant Rosenthal from collecting attorney fees awarded to Rosenthal by the Courts.  The Court denied the Motion,  and "collection" has begun in earnest. MORE

Ten US Senators say:  "We want to fix health care NOW..."

February 15th, 2007 - Ten US Senators, two days ago, wrote a bi-partisan letter to President George W. Bush saying:

"Each of us believes our current health system needs to be fixed now. Further delay is unacceptable as costs continue to skyrocket, our population ages, and chronic illness increases. In addition, our businesses are at a severe disadvantage when their competitors in the global market get health care for “free.”"

I'm going to say this once again - Nobody even tries to hide the fact that the US Health Care System is broken beyond repair.  There is a lot of finger-pointing going on, as well there should be.  The US health care system costs too much, it's the top three killers of Americans, and Americans don't trust it.  It simply doesn't work.

Who's fault is this?  Blame lies solidly with the management of the US Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS).  Current management is incapable of dealing with health care problems.  It has set up a US Health Care system that doesn't work, and has no chance of ever working. MORE

Quackbusters "On the Ropes?"...

January 26th, 2007 - Top "quackbuster"  Robert S. Baratz MD, DDS PhD was forcibly removed as a witness in a California case recently after it was pointed out to the State of California that Baratz was a not quite what he claims to be.  Cases all over the United States, originally initiated by "quackbusters" , are being dropped by State agencies - like hot potatoes.  MORE

Washington State Supreme Court SMASHES Quackbuster "Plan of '96"...

December 20th, 2006 - The Washington State Supreme Court, in its wisdom, a few days ago (December 14th, 2006), literally, for all time, smashed the New York ad agency run "quackbuster" operation's effort to use individual State Administrative hearings to destroy innovation in health care in favor of the "drugs, drugs, and more drugs"  medical monopoly.  The sleazy "Plan of '96" has been thwarted.

Cutting-edge health professionals around the US can breathe a sigh of relief, for the method of attack derived from the filth-encrusted "Plan of '96" has been declared to be unacceptable by the High Court.  And, State Supreme Court decisions carry weight in every area of the US. MORE

Anger in Indiana - The "Cal Streeter" Story Batters State...

June 27th, 2006 - On May 31st, 2006, in this newsletter, I revealed some details about a project I've been working on for a while.  In that article, called the "The Cal Streeter Story..." I talked about "one of the most important cases in US healthcare, an assault, and a turning point..."

The "Cal Streeter Story" is ripping health care regulation apart in Indiana - and it needs to be ripped apart.  A few months ago, for instance, an Indiana Court ordered the State Medical Board, using VERY STRONG language, to restore Streeter's license to practice medicine IMMEDIATELY.  The Board, clearly defying the Indiana Court, waited a full ninety days (90) to restore the license, then filed an Appeal with the State Appellate Court over the restoration order.  MORE

US HealthCare System Implodes - "Health Freedom" is Here...

June 8th, 2006 - The US healthcare system  is falling in on itself, and it is about time.  Change is in the air, and it won't take long.  Rated 72nd in quality worldwide - but number one in cost, it has become the number one killer of Americans. 

American industry, quietly, over the last few years, took the Bush Administration by the throat, so-to-speak, and demanded, and got, legislation moving consumer health choices out of the hands of the mega-greedy health insurance industry and into the hands of those same consumers.  MORE

2006 Biggest Health Threat to the United States - US Dentistry...

May 22nd, 2006 - The US Health Care System, rated 72nd in quality, but number one in cost  - worldwide, is known, by government reports, to be the NUMBER ONE KILLER of Americans - ahead of heart disease, cancer, and strokes.  There is no argument against facts.

But what is up for speculation are the REASONS why this is so.  No one I know of (government agencies, think tanks, etc.) has taken the time to describe, and rate, the reasons why US citizens are being so short-changed.  MORE

US Internet "Free Speech" Tightly Controlled by Secret Group...

February 22nd, 2006 - American citizens think, wrongly, that the internet is a place where they can somewhat freely express their opinions about social issues important to them. But they are dead wrong  - for there is an internet company, based in London, England that continuously monitors internet traffic - and if that company, or any of its members, or its customers, don't like what an American is saying on the internet, they can, and will, shut down that person's access to the internet. 

Surprised?  Don't be. 

Controlling internet access, and preventing "free speech" is a despot's dream come true - for it has been the internet, for some time now, that has provided the means for social activists on important issues to communicate, not only with each other, but with the media and the public.  MORE

AETNA Loses Major Dental Case in Fed Court - Is This Their Demise?... 

January 29th, 2006 - Late Friday, January 27th, 2006, 10th District Federal Court Judge Marcia Krieger handed struggling Aetna Insurance, perhaps the biggest legal loss in Aetna's history.  And, it was over a dental issue.  The reverberations will be felt worldwide.  This case may be one of the two straws to break this company's back.  I'll tell you about the second straw further into this article.

About 3:00PM, Central Standard time, in Denver, Colorado, Aetna attorneys and top management no doubt went into cardiac arrest when a decision in the "Cavitat v. Aetna" Federal case was announced by the Judge, especially since the decision came only one week after Aetna had arrogantly crowed its legal position to its customer base in Business Week Magazine.  It is not known whether Business Week plans to retract its story and apologize to those it named.

American Dental Association Shmucked in Chicago .....

December 20th, 2005 - 2005 has not been a good year for the American Dental Association (ADA).

And that's good... Congratulations, are in order, for all of you that helped make that happen.

There are those in North America that believe that the ADA, and their dental policies, positions, and statements, are responsible for a significant part of the constant health problems inflicted on Americans.  I'm one of those.

Take the "mercury amalgam" issue, for instance. MORE

Naturally .....

December 15th, 2005 - "Naturopathy" has been around since man's ancestors crawled out of the sea and ate their first plant..

Humorously, we might say that the ingestion of plants became a science after the first cave woman watched her husband leave the cave dwelling one morning, stop two caves down to flirt with the local cutie, and served him some strange smelling leaves in his lunch salad - giving him the worst case of diarrhea in history - and then told all her girlfriends how to prepare that salad..

Nine Percent Approval Rating?  US Network Television News FAILS "Big Pharma"...

December 10th, 2005  - In 1999 "Big Pharma" went to the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and got permission to advertise drugs, drugs, and more drugs directly to the American consumer.   Their intent, as it became obvious, was two things: (1)  sell more drugs to the American consumer, and, (2) control the media, especially US television..

TV network news, it appears, got the lion's share of advertising dollars.  I estimate that 55% percent of all advertising during the News Hours are paid for by "Big Pharma."  More, about a third of the entire newscast, itself, is focused on how wonderful your "local drug peddler" actually is. MORE

Health Freedom Protection Act (HR 4282) Introduced Into US Congress...

November 13th, 2005  - The US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) was originally designed to serve the needs of the American public. 

Of course, these days, it does no such thing - it is owned, outright, by "Big Pharma," the very industry it is supposed to regulate.

Not just is there a revolving door of pharma employees with the FDA, but every committee is in the hands of the drug pushers.  In fact, the FDA is little more than a gun carrying enforcement agency whose only purpose seems to be to stifle, raid, imprison, shut down, harass, torture, lie about, and generally discourage competition to drugs, drugs, and more drugs.

They don't even try to hide it. MORE

American Dental Association Flummoxed in Philly...

November 3rd, 2005 -The American Dental Association (ADA) spent a fortune last month holding its annual convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  If it had hoped for a public relations coup to help promote its aims, its hopes were dashed by the Pennsylvania chapter of the North American anti-mercury-amalgam movement, the "Pennsylvania Coalition for Mercury Free Dentistry"

The ADA fell on its face - and frankly - their convention worked against them.  What  I predicted in my September 26th, 2005 newsletter "Health Freedom" Counter Attacks - Big Time..." happened.  Here's what I said:  MORE

NOW IT'S TIME FOR A LAUGH...

October 10th, 2005, is a day to watch for every one defending health freedom - for Stephen Barrett (the king of the quackpots) gets his date in Court, again - and I don't think he's going to like it.

Let me explain why....

A couple years back,  top "quackbuster" propagandist Stephen Barrett, a failed MD who describes himself as "a retired Psychiatrist," took it upon himself to attack the age-old Chiropractic profession. He even made up a new website "chirowatch" or something like that, to criticize the profession.  He began to talk as though he knew something about it - drawing, I guess, on his life experiences as a part-time MD in an Allentown, Pennsylvania mental hospital. 

Barrett, particularly took an interest in one Tedd Koren DC, a well known Chiropractic advocate, author, Publisher, and seminar leader. Barrett, of course, did the usual "sliming" of Koren on his dubious website "quackwatch.com." MORE

 

 

 

 

Stopping Ebola - The Ayurvedic Approach...

Water With Life - How To Cure and/or Curtail Ebola Virus Infection...

Note from Tim Bolen:  Big Pharma would have us all believe, through their stranglehold on US media, that the drugs, vaccines, drugs, vaccines, drugs, and more drugs and vaccines approach is ALL there is in the world.  But the fact is, there are MANY other approaches to health care on planet earth.  Ayurvedic Medicine, for instance, has been around for over three thousand years, so read THIS interesting approach to dealing with Ebola...

TR Shantha MD is a former client of mine who, after a major assault on his practice, completely cleared his name - although you'd never know it from Quackwatch.com's article on him.  You can read about that situation here.

By:  Dr. T. R. Shantha, MD, PhD, FACA

October 18th, 2014 - The news about Ebola and its possible fatal end is everywhere in the news - created by many hypochondriacs.  The virus is deadly and spreads only by contact with body fluids.  Once the person gets the infection, their life hangs on a thin thread.  Mortality from the infection is as high as 50% - 60%.   Another deadly disease that kills about 35,000 people in the east, mostly young, is rabies, which is 100% fatal compared to 40-60% mortality by Ebola virus infection. Ebola will be and is curable, but not rabies.  

Coming back to Ebola, it does not spread by air or touching people. It spreads only through body fluids contact, and use of contaminated needles and from animals to humans eating contaminated meat. 

Two Americans flown from Liberia walked out of the Emory hospital after receiving an experimental vaccine with intensive care.   An NBC camera operator is currently receiving an experimental drug called brincidofovir, or CMX001 for treatment of Ebola. Thomas Eric Duncan, the first person diagnosed with Ebola in the United States died, 10 days after he was admitted this month to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas.

There is no vaccine or cure in sight for this dreaded disease.  What is the mother to do if one has the Ebola infection!  One desperate treatment with vaccine has resulted in some successes. That kind of vaccine used on two US citizens is not available to all in Africa.

The signs and symptoms after the Ebola virus infection are:

1.                  Up to first 9 days:  the infected person suffers from fatigue, headache, fever with chills.  

2.                  On day 10: develops high fever, vomiting blood, rash and passive behaviour. 

3.                  On day 11: in some cases, there is bleeding from the nose, mouth, eyes and anus. 

4.                  On day 12: develop seizures, internal bleeding, gradually lose consciousness, and death or recovers slowly.

 

Some patients have gotten blood transfusions from Ebola survivors, with the hope that a survivor's antibodies will help a sick person's immune system fight off the virus. Good supportive care also saves many lives. This consists of the routine care provided in American hospitals and intensive care units, such as monitoring patient's blood pressure, keeping them hydrated, helping them breathe – with machines, as needed. This help can keep patients alive until their immune system fights off the invading virus or succumbs to the Ebola virus infection. 

My therapy to curtail and cure the Ebola virus infection is simple and inexpensive besides taking all preventive  measures to come in contact.  It is a precursor of a vaccine with production of auto-antibodies within the body of the infected patients.  MORE

Health Freedom Congress Follow Up...

What the Organizers Say...

Note from Tim Bolen:  Interspersed throughout this article are photos from the 2014 event.

Guest article by Diane Miller JD - Health Freedom Coalition

October 16th, 2014 - Whew!!  The 2014 US Health Freedom Congress was the best ever and leaders are continuing to strengthen the unified voice of health freedom!  Thank you to all those leaders and organizations who participated this year, and greetings to those leaders who could not make it but will be joining us in the future.  We here at NHFC are working on drafting an overall summary of the Congress to send out to a large public database like we do each year for our NHFC website.  However I wanted to say a special thank you to all of you, and we are looking forward to our future work together.

 

A special note to all of you:  The NHFC Board of Directors has made a decision to host the Congress in 2015 and we are now in the discussion of location and dates and program beginnings.  If there are people interested in the design of the next Congress please contact me directly at similars@aol.com.

 

Today I was reflecting on the history of how the US Health Freedom Congress came to be and I wanted to take this moment to give you a little history on NHFC’s unfolding of this amazing project MORE

Here's What I Think...

by: Kenneth P Stoller, MD, FACHM

October 16th, 2014 - With so much misinformation floating around about the latest viral scare, it is hard to know what is real and what isn’t.

Tim Bolen asked me to write this post after I posed a question to him... "When is a Federal agency, such as the CDC, no longer protected by the immunities a Federal agency normally has because they are engaged in activities that are not consistent with their own regulations and procedures?" 

The CDC is responsible for vaccine safety and yet they own patents on, for example, the Ebola virus and could potentially profit from an Ebola vaccine – a vaccine that would not be needed if the virus doesn’t spread far and wide. Yet if the CDC helps control the spread of the virus they would be working against their own financial interest. 

Not only that, they have potential martial law like authority to order citizens take interventions that they financially profit from. That sounds just like any other corporation. In fact, it sounds like regular, everyday corporations would drool to have the ability to create a problem, be positioned to profit from it, and be able to order people, or scare people enough to take what you have to sell.  MORE

Their Health Is In Your Hands:

Your Essential Role In Helping Protect Future Generations From Toxic Medical Practices

By Rev. Lisa K. Sykes, President of the Coalition for Mercury-free Drugs (CoMeD), Dr. John Kall, DMD, Chairman of the Board of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT), and Amanda Just, Consumer

Monday, June 9, 2014 - The health of the future generations in the United States and around the world is in your hands.  

It is in your hands because you have the power to teach parents, pregnant women, women of childbearing age, and caregivers something they absolutely need to know but often don’t:  patients have a right to opt for non-toxic options when making health care choices for themselves and their children.  Sadly, the public is largely unaware of toxic amounts of mercury in such essential things as vaccines, flu shots, and dental fillings. 

The public, especially parents and parents-to-be, need to be informed because research from the University of Texas has linked mercury exposure with children who require special education at a higher rate than their unexposed peers. Even worse, Dr. Goldman published a peer-reviewed study in Human and Experimental Toxicology revealing that administering multiple Thimerosal-containing flu shots to pregnant women resulted in a significant increase in spontaneous abortions and stillbirths. 

Most people are also not aware that some vaccines, flu shots, and dental fillings used in the US and other countries contain mercury, and mercury in any form or amount is known to be poisonous and damaging to the human body, especially to the developing bodies of fetuses and children.  Likewise, most people are not aware that they can opt for mercury-free alternatives simply by asking for mercury-free vaccines, flu shots, and dental fillings. 

The responsibility of warning others about this fact has been left to you because most governmental authorities around the globe have failed to take action on this urgent matter.   MORE

Mendocracy...

Part Three of the Guest Article Series by Ken Stoller MD...

July 25th, 2013 - This is part III of the recent guest series on the Bolen Report that started with Idiocracy.  I am using the incredible catastrophe of the so-called “autism” epidemic to illustrate the shadow part of our society. This shadow must be acknowledged and embraced if we are going to move forward and help all the children and young adults now suffering from this iatrogenic environmental illness that affects the brain (a man made gastro-immune encephalopathy) that at its core is the practice of vaccines.

This isn’t only about vaccines, because the same poisons that have turned children autistic are in the food, water and in the air we breathe – and they do and have affected many.

Mendocracy is a name for an operating system that is based on lies, falsehoods and deceptions.  MORE

Corporatocracy...

For God’s sake, stop letting these fools get away with this...

Guest Editorial by   Ken Stoller MD

July 18th, 2013 - This is part II of Idiocracy[1], wherein I discussed a problem wide spread in modern medicine, which is calling a disease by its symptom instead of what is causing it, and in so doing directly or indirectly obfuscating the understanding and treatment of the real condition.

The condition I was referring to in Idiocracy was “autism,” which is really an environmentally triggered gastro-immune encephalopathy. It is all a metaphor, so to say, for a fundamental problem in our society that we are being manipulated, controlled, exploited and in some cases exterminated.

Once again I will illustrate this by taking about an illness I am familiar with,  I will use the case of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) -  a disease caused by (in the vast majority of cases) the Epstein Barr Virus , Varacella Virus or HHV-6[2], and they cause “multiple scars” in the brain if you are so unfortunate to have them get into your brain,  because that is what MS actually means…. multiple scars in the brain. Yet that tells us nothing about how the scars got there or how to treat them. MS is actually chronic viral encephalitis, and the medical literature is replete with evidence showing that to be the case, but your physician[3] doesn’t know that even though there is more than enough evidence to make the case for these viruses to be implicated as the cause of MS.

In all likelihood, your physician doesn’t read the medical literature unless it is placed in front of their face by a drug rep (the name given to the very attractive food bearing employees that pharma companies send out to seduce physicians).

Yes, that is how most physicians get educated once they leave the hollowed halls of their pharma controlled medical schools.

So, today…  MORE

July 10th, 2013  - I entered my pediatric residency in the early 1980’s. I was there when the first children with AIDS rolled into the hospital; although, we didn’t know it was AIDs at first, I was there when it was decided to give newborns Hep B vaccine, and I was there when the very first children with “autism” I had very seen in all my years of training came into my humble pediatric office circa 1989. This was at the leading edge of the explosion of cases of this encephalopathy, a medical brain disease, that we all call autism.  

After all, autism is just a made up name for a collection of symptoms, which no more addresses the causality or treatment than saying someone has chest pain.

There is a big difference between having chest pain due to a gunshot wound and having a heart attack, and none of us would be particularly pleased with being diagnosed with chest pain given that was our presenting symptom. We would want to know what was at its cause and what we could do about it.

It would be laughable if a fictional Centers of Disease Creation (CDC) were to simply point out that the incidence of reported chest pain (caused by gunshot wounds) was increasing, and that that increase was due to better awareness. It would also be laughable if their response to the ever increasing number of Americans with chest pain was to promote early detection of this pain, for example, know the warning signs of having pain in your chest and note any red discoloration of your clothes as soon as possible.  MORE

Largest Water Wholesaler in Southern California Sued for Illegal Use of an Unapproved Drug to Fulfill Fluoridation Program

Guest Article by Jeff Green
National Director
Citizens for Safe Drinking Water

August 17th, 2011 - Alleging willful misrepresentation and deceptive business practices by Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, attorneys for citizen/consumers from San Diego, Los Angeles and Ventura Counties filed a lawsuit in the public interest of millions of consumers in Southern California, citing that MWD of SoCal has made claims of safely and effectively treating and preventing dental disease in recipient consumers, while selecting and delivering a hydrofluosilicic acid drug through their water system that has never been approved for safety and effectiveness, nor in the expected dosages delivered by MWD through retail water districts, either topically, systemically through ingestion, or trans-dermal exposures through baths and showers.  MORE

U.S. Government Calls for the Phase-out of Dental Mercury Amalgam...

Guest Article by Charles G. Brown, National Counsel
Consumers for Dental Choice

April 5th, 2011 - In an extraordinary development that will change the global debate about amalgam, the United States government has announced that it supports a “phase down, with the goal of eventual phase out by all Parties, of mercury amalgam.”  This statement – a radical reversal of its former position that “any change toward the use of dental amalgam is likely to result in positive public health outcomes” –  is part of the U.S. government’s submission for the upcoming third round of negotiations for the world mercury treaty.* MORE

Strong Showing for IAOMT at FDA Advisory Panel Meeting...

Guest Article by Steve Koral DMD, International Academy of Oral Medicine & Toxiclogy (IAOMT)

Gaithersburg, MD, December 15, 2010

After having scored the historic coup of convincing the Food and Drug Administration to reconsider its 2009 rule that declared mercury amalgam safe, the petitioners, led by a strong contingent from IAOMT, presented an expert panel with extensive testimony about the hazards of dental mercury. As was the case at the 2006 meeting, the scientific and clinical presentations were supported by compelling personal stories of illness and recovery from victims of amalgam toxicity. Of course, there were several representatives of “organized” dentistry, who vigorously expressed confidence in the safety of amalgam, but they presented no new scien
ce.
 


The press coverage was unprecedented.  Brian Williams and Katie Couric each broadcast two minute stories, with interviews of Freya Koss, Karen Palmer, and Dr. Mark Breiner.  Many print and internet outlets picked it up too, including the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, LA Times, Washington Post, and CNN.com.  IAOMT emerges from this meeting as a heavy-weight player in the process. The world is getting to know who we are.

FDA Says You Don’t Exist -You Have Until Dec. 3 to Prove Them Wrong...

Guest Article by Charles G. Brown, National Counsel
Consumers for Dental Choice

November 19th, 2010 - Here is one of the frauds for which FDA is famous.  FDA’s in-house dentist Susan Runner, who proudly unveiled FDA’s abysmal amalgam rule at a news conference in July 2009, said that in all of human history only 141 people have complained about amalgam.  In reality, FDA has received thousands of letters and comments from people saying amalgam’s mercury has caused grievous harm to them or a member of their family.  But FDA’s “scientists” (and I use that word loosely) have decided that their prime source of information is the pro-mercury American Dental Association – a trade association that endorses the products of amalgam manufacturers for cash and that owns two amalgam patents.
 
So Susan Runner, speaking for the Food and Drug Administration, says you do not exist – nobody is injured by amalgam.  FDA pretends mercury implanted an inch from a child’s brain does no harm, that mercury implanted in a pregnant woman does not hurt the unborn baby, that amalgam does not contribute to the total mercury bioburden in our bodies.  Instead of protecting consumers, FDA gave the dental industry and the cut-rate pro-mercury dentists a green light to cover up the mercury from consumers in 2009.

Now thanks to all those who spoke out against the rule, FDA is reconsidering its position on amalgam.  Here are three things you can do to make a difference: MORE

The Starfield Revelation, Revisited...

 

By John Rappaport

 

October 30, 2010 - In the summer of the year 2000, it was a bolt out of the blue.  The revelation.  I come back to it for various reasons—this time because I’ve been reading doctors’ attacks on the nutritional industry:  “fraudulent claims, quackery, unproven science, theft.”

 

You’ve heard all the accusations.

 

It’s interesting that these doctors don’t bother to examine their own profession.  If they did, they would fall through the deep hole, and they might never find their way back to the top.

 

On July 26, 2000, Dr. Barbara Starfield published her landmark study, “Is US Health Really the Best in the World?” in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).  At the time, Starfield was working at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health.  She still is.

 

She is, as you can see, an insider.  You don’t have your papers published in JAMA if you’re not. 

 

Among her findings?  The annual figure for deaths caused by medical drugs in the US is 106,000.

 

THE ANNUAL FIGURE.

 

All those drugs were, according to her report, correctly prescribed and, of course, approved by the FDA.  No drug makes its way into the American market unless the FDA certifies it as safe and effective.  Both.

 

In a long, exclusive interview I conducted with Dr. Starfield earlier this year "AN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH Dr. Barbara Starfield: Medically Caused Death in America," she made it clear that, since the 2000 publication date, no federal agency had contacted her to consult on taking remedial actions, in the face of all these deaths.

 

It was also clear that the federal government had undertaken no massive campaign to cut down on the deaths caused by medical drugs. MORE

 

The Threat to Health Freedom Now - an Exclusive Interview with Jonathan Emord...

 

By John Rappaport

 

October 25, 2010 - As a medical investigative reporter for 28 years, I’ve seen public interest in health freedom come and go.  Right now, in 2010, it is at a low point. 

 

In the early 1990s, there was a tremendous fervor in America.  Millions of people, perceiving a threat from the federal government, realized they could be cut off from the right to improve their health according to their own wishes, judgments, and decisions.

 

In practical terms, health freedom has come to mean: the right to have access to the widest possible range of nutritional supplements, health practitioners, and treatments—with no government obstruction.   

 

Back in 1993, millions of Americans believed in that principle, and sent letters to Congress.  Rallies were held.  Celebrities appeared and supported traditional American liberty.

 

The final blow was struck with the passage of the Dietary Supplement Health Act of 1994 (DSHEA).  It appeared to promise the results citizens were looking for.  The FDA would not be permitted to limit access to the full range of nutritional supplements.    

 

Then the furor died down and people went back to their lives.  The internet grew into a giant.  Millions of pages discussing health issues appeared.  More freedom.  More access. 

 

But there has been an overall dampening of that spirit of the early 90s.  Many people believe the major battle has been won.

 

To examine whether this is the case, and whether the DSHEA Law is actually keeping Americans safe, I interviewed a widely revered lawyer, Jonathan Emord. MORE

 

Chronic Lyme Disease: Battle Requires Attack on Multiple Fronts

 

February 20th, 2008 - Most people battling chronic Lyme disease think of the illness as an infection caused by a bacterium known commonly as Borrelia Burgdorferi, generally transmitted via the bite of an infected tick.  What many don’t recognize, however, is that recovery from chronic Lyme disease requires a recognition that the disease is truly a much more complex illness.  Recovery often challenges one to consider more than just infection as the single causative agent involved in the disease process.  It is through looking beyond the infectious component of Lyme disease and understanding the equally important aspects of damaging heavy metals and other toxic insults that a more full and lasting recovery may be realized.

 

Garry F. Gordon MD, DO, MD (H) co-founded the American

College for Advancement in Medicine (ACAM) and serves as the President of Gordon Research Institute.  Dr. Gordon graciously spent a couple of hours with me sharing his views on chronic Lyme disease and those factors that are important in recovering from chronic illness. 

 

Dr. Gordon acknowledges Lyme disease as a serious infection which can lead to a wide-variety of health challenges.  He does not, however, hyperfocus on the specific tick-borne pathogens which cause the disease.  He instead believes that a multitude of infections are prevalent in anyone with chronic ill health.  In addition to these numerous infections, our state of health is closely tied to our total body burden of endogenous and exogenous toxins.  When looking at why illness is present, it is important to look at a number of factors including genetics, chronic infections, and total body burden of heavy metals and other toxins.

By Charles G. Brown, National Counsel, Consumers For Dental Choice

May 21st, 2007 - The tipping point against mercury fillings, my friends, has arrived.  A dentist magazine surveyed its dentist readers, and finds that 52% of American dentists now are mercury-free   Wow.  

This new dentist majority brings colossal ramifications upon America ’s protectors of mercury fillings -- the American Dental Association and the Food and Drug Administration.  

I wrote the head of the ADA to inform him that the ADA has missed the boat by not exiting the mercury fillings business last year.  (I even went to Chicago in December to hand them a graceful exit plan.)  Choosing instead to stay mired in  the 19th century, ADA ’s pro-mercury members are likely to be picked off via lawsuits, one-by-ones.  The ADA , I advised Dr. Bramson, will morph into a numerical shadow of itself, as its members wake up to the fact that this rallying around mercury has been a sham;  With this new evidence, if the ADA refuses to warn its dwindling band of pro-mercury dentists to abandon mercury, the ADA likewise will be sitting in the litigation dock.  MORE

Codex Adventures in Ottawa - 35th Session of the Codex Committee on Food Labeling (Ottawa, Canada),  April 30 - May 4, 2007

By Cheri Tips - Executive Director - National Health Federation (NHF)

May 10th, 2007 - Note - The NHF had two important objectives in this Ottawa meeting - (1)  keeping Genetically-Modified (GM) foods labeled as such, word-wide, and (2) insuring that foods could make health claims.  Despite fierce opposition they accomplished both objectives. - Tim Bolen

The National Health Federation (NHF) has International Nongovernmental Organization (INGO) observer status at all Codex Alimentarius meetings and represents the interests of health-conscious consumers.  There were numerous countries and other INGOs present, interested in various matters from labeling of genetically-modified foods to the labeling of organic foods. 

Importantly, too, the subject of the FAO/WHO's Global Strategy on Diet, Physical Activity, and Health was discussed. MORE

Does Aspartame multiply female MS? - New Study Report at Neurology Conference...

By:  Dr. Betty Martini, D.Hum, Founder - Mission Possible International

May 7th, 2007 - About 400,000 people in the US are victims of Multiple Sclerosis (MS), a horrible autoimmune disease that devastates the central nervous system.

At the American Academy of Neurology’s annual meeting, Dr. Gary Cutter, professor of Biostatistics at the University of Alabama, said women are now four times as likely as men to get multiple sclerosis: “It started at two-to-one and is now four-to-one.”  Researchers found the ratio of women-to-men is increasing by about 50 percent each decade.

The increase is more pronounced in younger people with young women especially contracting it at an accelerating rate.   MORE

The Mushroom Cloud that Caused Autism

Opinion by: Kenneth Stoller, MD, FAAP with Anne McElroy Dachel

May 3rd, 2007 - In the first article in this series on autism, a mercurial finger was pointed at the high level of mercury children received from their vaccines and the huge upswing in the autism rate. It was noted that the background level of mercury pollution from coal-fire power plants and other sources (such as dental amalgam) was so high that one in every six women in the US has a level of mercury in her body high enough to affect her children’s health.  The cost to society of these affected children amounts to billions of dollars annually, and the ultimate cost of caring for all those disabled will cost trillions. Lastly, the point was made that this isn’t so much about autism as it is about the future of human life on this planet if we don’t stop mercury pollution.

Concerning the issue of autism, the press has failed to present both sides in the heated debate over a possible link between vaccines and this devastating disorder.  The last word is often given to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, without any mention of the vast web of conflict of interest ties between CDC employees and the pharmaceutical industry.  MORE

Throwing children into oncoming traffic: The truth about Autism

By: Kenneth Stoller, MD, FAAP with Anne McElroy Dachel

April 24th, 2007 - I have been a practicing pediatrician for over 20 years. I saw my first child with autism in the early 90’s – before that I had never seen an autistic child, and I never saw an autistic child in all my years at school. The boy was 4 years old and you could see the frustration in his face as he wanted to speak but nothing intelligible would come from his mouth except shrieks of anguish.  

As I studied his tortured face, it was as if there was an old time telephone switchboard operator inside his head trying to plug in the correct phone cables but not being able to complete the call. This family had known me from an old practice I worked at in another city, but they had traveled to see me because they trusted me and were looking for answers that no one seemed to have for them, but I too had no answers and I could see the mom was greatly disappointed. After the family left my office I poured over a few dusty textbooks and wondered if I had just seen a very rare disorder, a disorder that affected one child in 10,000 children…autism. MORE

MY VIEW OF THE BIGGER PICTURE

A Guest Commentary by: Steven C. Eisen, DC

October 20, 2005 - On October 13, 2005, notorious self-proclaimed consumer medical advocate, Stephen Barrett’s defamation lawsuit against Dr. Tedd Koren was thrown out of court after a grueling three and a half day trial. To the unknowing observer, this may seem insignificant, but in no uncertain terms, it was a big victory for the battle of freedom and rights of all individuals to select the health care of their choice. 

The American Medical Association has a long standing history of trying to monopolize health care in the United States by eliminating competition. In Wilk v. AMA a Federal court ruled that the AMA and other individuals and organizations had conspired to contain and eliminate the practice of chiropractic. The court found that the AMA and it’s officials instituted a boycott of chiropractors and made it unethical for a medical doctor to associate with chiropractors. MORE
