Big Pharma Company Caught Faking Cancer Patients To Sell Deadly Opioid Drugs

Published

on

It’s no secret that many pharmaceutical drugs have life-threatening side effects, but oftentimes they aren’t discussed when the medication is being prescribed to the patient. It’s important that, when taking any pharmaceutical drug, you weigh the pros and cons of taking the drug, because when it comes to pharmaceuticals, the benefits don’t always outweigh the risks.

Sometimes, the wrong drugs will be prescribed to patients, but it isn’t very often that Big Pharma companies get caught literally conspiring to do so. Pharmaceutical company Insys Therapeutics is currently under investigation for making it look like patients had cancer (when they did not) so they could sell their opioid drugs to them.

The Big Pharma corporation used a variety of tactics to trick both medical staff and patients, including falsifying medical records, misleading insurance companies, and bribing doctors, all of which is outlined in a federal indictment on the United States Department of Justice website.

How Insys Faked Cancer Patients to Push Deadly Drugs for Profit

Shortly after Insys was given approval to sell their opioid drug, they found one very significant problem. Their drug, a sprayable form of fentanyl called Subsys, was designed to treat cancer patients with acute pain. However, they soon found that their market of cancer patients wasn’t quite big enough to match their profit goals, so they started falsifying information to make it look like patients had cancer so they could sell more of their drug.

The U.S. Department of Justice document reads:

Several pharmaceutical executives and managers, formerly employed by Insys Therapeutics, Inc., were arrested today on charges that they led a nationwide conspiracy to bribe medical practitioners to unnecessarily prescribe a fentanyl-based pain medication and defraud healthcare insurers.

Whenever someone needed prior authorization for Subsys, instead of someone from an actual doctor’s office calling the insurance companies, an Insys employee would. The insurance companies were tricked into thinking that they were talking to someone qualified, as Insys employees had a very strategically worded script to give them that impression and would hide their caller ID.

The most crucial element of their scheme surrounded the question of whether the patient had acute pain caused by cancer, referred to as “breakthrough pain.” Subsys is a drug for cancer patients, and so insurance companies needed to ensure that the patient indeed had cancer. Insys would strategically answer this question by implying that the patient had cancer without specifically saying so.

The authorities have a recording of such a call, which is frankly astonishing to listen to. It’s easy to see how the Insys employees got around answering this question but still made it seem like the patient had “breakthrough pain” from cancer.

You can listen to that recording here, which involves a conversation between an Insys employee and an insurance company regarding a New Jersey patient named Sarah Fuller, who was not diagnosed with cancer but was still prescribed Subsys by her doctor. Fuller actually passed away of a Subsys overdose, and her doctor’s license is currently in the process of being suspended.

You can hear the Insys employee stating that Subsys is “intended for the management of breakthrough cancer pain” without actually stating that the patient herself has cancer. The Insys employee also explains that Fuller experiences “breakthrough pain,” but doesn’t actually say the word “cancer.” It’s tricky wording like this that leads the insurance representatives to believe that the patient has cancer, when in reality they don’t.

This fraud and corruption is not going to be swept under the rug, though. Six former Insys higher-ups and employees have already been charged, including the former CEO, with fraud and racketeering crimes in relation to the drug Subsys.

Prosecutors described the situation as a “nationwide conspiracy to bribe medical practitioners to unnecessarily prescribe a fentanyl-based pain medication and defraud health care insurers.”

Special agent Harold Shaw of the FBI explained:

As alleged, top executives of Insys Therapeutics, Inc. paid kickbacks and committed fraud to sell a highly potent and addictive opioid that can lead to abuse and life threatening respiratory depression. In doing so, they contributed to the growing opioid epidemic and placed profit before patient safety. These indictments reflect the steadfast commitment of the FBI and our law enforcement partners to confront the opioid epidemic impacting our communities, while bringing to justice those who seek to profit from fraud or other criminal acts.

Since then, more federal charges have been announced against those connected to Subsys, and numerous state attorneys have filed their own lawsuits against other employees implicated. Though the six executives charged all pled not guilty, other employees have pled guilty.

Two months ago, former Insys regional manager Karen Hill pled guilty, giving the court details about how she trained employees to convince doctors to collude with the company.

“She gave examples that some of her doctors were motivated by money, chocolate, and spending time with her,” federal prosecutors stated in a release regarding her plea. “When the sales representative asked Hill how to identify doctors who were financially motivated to prescribe Subsys, Hill explained that she looks for doctors that are ‘money hungry,’ and went on to describe how to figure out if a doctor has a ‘light in their eyes’ and is willing to ‘play ball.’ “

“Patient safety is paramount and prescriptions for these highly addictive drugs, especially Fentanyl, which is among the most potent and addictive opioids, should be prescribed without the influence of corporate money,” noted United States Attorney Carmen M. Ortiz.  “I hope that today’s charges send a clear message that we will continue to attack the opioid epidemic from all angles, whether it is corporate greed or street level dealing.”

It’s inspiring to see that the justice system is taking this form of corruption seriously, especially with an industry as large and powerful as Big Pharma. However, this isn’t the first time doctors were paid money to push opioids or other pharmaceutical drugs.

recently published study in the American Journal of Public Health demonstrated just how deep this problem of the doctor-opioid relationship runs, proving that opioids represent a lucrative business for both physicians and Big Pharma.

The study found that an astonishing 1 in 12 doctors has received money from drug companies marketing opioid pharmaceuticals. Between August 2013 and December 2015, researchers at Boston Medical Center found that 68,177 doctors were paid a combined amount of $46 million from drug companies marketing these drugs. You can read more about that in our CE article here.

You can even figure out exactly how much your personal doctor gets paid to sell you drugs, regardless of whether or not they’re opioids or any other pharmaceutical drug. You can read more about that in our CE article here and discover how much Big Pharma pays your doctor to prescribe you drugs.

Final Thoughts 

Although the U.S. government has been lenient toward Big Pharma in the past, the situation with Insys clearly illustrates that they can and will take a stand against Big Pharma. Let’s hope that this trend continues into the future!

This entire situation also puts the doctor-patient relationship into question, and makes you wonder why it is that doctors are compensated when you’re sick rather than when you’re cured or feeling better. Doctors’ jobs are supposedly to help cure you, so shouldn’t doctors be paid when they get you off drugs, because that would imply they’ve helped cure you, not to get you on them?

The opioid epidemic is also a huge issue in and of itself, and I’d encourage you to read the following articles so you can get a better understanding of how Big Pharma and the U.S. government played fundamental roles in creating it.

It’s no secret that there’s an opium epidemic plaguing North America, and it’s been a growing issue for decades. Many people often picture drug dealers as these scary individuals selling pills on streets, when in reality, the drug pushers responsible for the abuse of opioids, opium, and heroin are largely the U.S. government, pharmaceutical companies, and doctors.

That’s right: The U.S. government and physicians are deeply connected to the opium trade. You have physicians as well as Big Pharma heavily pushing and marketing opioids, and then you have the U.S. government governing the opium trade. It’s very clear that we need a shift in values in the medical industry, from focusing on profit to focusing on healing.

Real Life Hero: One Man Rescued 64 Dogs & Cats From Hurricane Florence In A School Bus

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    In the wake of Hurricane Florence many pets were left behind. Thanks to a real life hero, Tony Alsup, the lives of dozens of animals were saved.

  • Reflect On:

    Are you deeply inspired to assist those in need, whatever that may look like to you? If you are not taking action now, how can you begin taking action on that inspiration?

After officials announced their stern clear message to people living in the coastal towns of North Carolina, Leave, Now. “You put your life at risk by staying, don’t plan to leave once the rain and winds start.” More than 1 million people were told to leave. Unfortunately because of the rush and severity of the incoming storm many people panicked and left their pets behind.

Shelters across the southeastern coast have been struggling to make room for an influx of pets that have been dropped off. Thankfully, there are some real life heroes out there and because of these compassionate and courageous people the lives of dozens of abandoned animals will be saved and have the chance to find a new home.

Last week, a couple from North Carolina rescued around 20 pets from shelters in their “fluffy bus,” and a truck driver, Tony Alsup loaded up 64 cats and dogs in his school bus, eventually driving them towards safety, outside the hurricane warning zone.

“It’s so easy for people to adopt the small pets and the cuties and the cuddly,” Alsup told the Greenville News. “We take on the ones that deserve a chance even though they are big and a little ugly. But I love big dogs, and we find places for them.”

Greenville News reported that the animal lover from Tennessee spent $3,200 on a school bus to collect all of the sheltered pet’s from disaster zones across the country. Several days before Hurricane Florence hit, Alsup drove through South Carolina and collected 53 dogs and 11 cats into the bus from various shelters across the state. He drove them to a private dog shelter in Alabama where many were adopted, others were sent to other adoption centers across the states who had a little room to spare for the un-adopted animals.

Pets Often Get Left Behind

It’s unfortunate, but in the days before a hurricane, pet shelters begin to fill up and government run shelters in some jurisdictions are not allowed to turn away new animals, but this sometimes means that they have to put down other animals to make space for the new ones. People become frantic and don’t know what to do with their pets, so they drop them off at shelters, even though there is little that these shelters can do to rescue all of these animals from disasters such as hurricanes.

Some of the animals of South Carolina were truly blessed to have good samaritans like Alsup swoop in to save their lives. He aims to head back down to Wilmington North Carolina, an area where the flooding has caused road closures in order to save even more animals in need.

“Animals—especially shelter pets—they always have to take the back seat of the bus,” Alsup told the Post. “But I’ll give them their own bus. If I have to I’ll pay for all the fuel, or even a boat, to get these dogs out of there.”

Isn’t it amazing to see people performing such selfless acts to save the lives of those in need? Way to go Tony for your continued efforts to save the lives of countless animals. May he be an inspiration to us all to do what we can in times of need.

You can follow Alsup’s journey on Facebook and donate to his gas and upkeep funds through his Paypal.

Much Love

Are Human Clones Real? Music Star Says He’s A “Second Generation Clone”

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Recently, a popular rapper named Lil Buu claimed he is a clone who was cloned by a company called Clonaid. He ignited a debate, but the fact remains, human cloning has been a controversial topic for years, and it might have already been done.

  • Reflect On:

    Different types of cloning may exist, including the transferral of consciousness into another body. It could also have health benefits, but is it 'right?'

If there’s one thing I’ve learned about the planet from working at CE for nearly a decade, it’s not to instantaneously dismiss a claim simply because it conflicts with what I currently believe. This has been a problem throughout history, in all fields, and it’s not a secret that intellectual authorities have pronounced their supremacy by simply ridiculing aspects of our reality that simply don’t fit within the framework of accepted knowledge.

We’ve come a long way, and we now live in a world where labelling something as a ‘conspiracy theory’ is actually harmful and detrimental to moving forward. 9/11 is perhaps the best example we know, despite the fact that the US government still sticks to their official story while practically all of America has now seen through the cracks and lies. Another great example would be Edward Snowden. Prior to his leaks, mass surveillance was considered a conspiracy theory. UFOs are another one that is no longer a debatable topic–UFOs exist, the extraterrestrial conversation is the one we are having now, along with other metaphysical realities.

Revelations continue to make their way into the mainstream, and when the ‘global elite’ ridicule them, or label them as false without explaining why or presenting any evidence, it just hurts their agenda even more. So while we as a collective have been ‘had’ on so many different topics in the past, it’s exciting that many more of us are becoming aware of this, and we are now reacting. We are in the midst of great change. In today’s day and age, it’s vital to keep an open mind, allow your belief systems to be challenged, as new information that is backed by evidence is hard to ignore. We have to come to terms with aspects of our reality and the human experience that don’t resonate with us, so we can begin to change the story.

Ready To Read About Cloning?

This is why it might be a good time for an article on cloning, to simply challenge you to observe your reaction to something you may not believe. What was once considered ‘crazy’ is no longer so in so many areas, and perhaps this is the trend we are seeing with regards to the idea of cloning. For those of you who don’t know, cloning on animals has been done and repeated in labs. Experts are also looking at cloning to re-generate new organs that could replace faulty ones. Multiple universities intend to produce cloned human embryos in order to derive stem cells for medical research on diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, and other diseases.

‘Dolly the sheep’ made headlines when she became the first (that we heard about) mammal to be cloned from an adult cell. Prior to Dolly, several clones had been produced in the lab, including frogs, mice, and even cows. All of them had been cloned from the DNA from embryos. Scientists also recently cloned monkeys for the first time. So is it really hard to believe that it’s been done on humans?

UN Prohibits Human Cloning

Shortly after Dolly was cloned, the United Nations General Assembly gathered to create a declaration on human cloning, where Member states were called on to adopt all measures necessary to prohibit all forms of human cloning. 84 countries were in favour of the ban, 34 were against it, and 37 Member States chose not to vote at all. (source) It raises a number of philosophical questions, for sure, but how fitting was it for the UN to pose these sanctions during this time?

Below is an excerpt from a Wikileaks document describing a meeting at the UN in 2008 with regards to human cloning, expressing that many countries believe “that any human cloning is unethical and an assault on human dignity, and transforms humans into commodities, devaluing human life and the relationship of human beings to each other.”

The document goes on to state,

An effort to ban reproductive human cloning, while being silent on “research” cloning, would suggest something less than total condemnation of all cloning and thus be inconsistent with the UNGA declaration. There can be no exception for “research” cloning, which would require the destruction of all cloned embryos: to attempt to justify it on the basis of potential benefits would take the ethically untenable position that human life can be created and destroyed for the convenience of others. And any effort to regulate “research” cloning would similarly be unacceptable since it would facilitate what the UNGA has already said should be banned.

So, as you can see, human cloning is a serious issue, and has been a serious issue for a while. For someone who has never heard of this type of thing, it might come as a shock that such discussions have taken place.

Lil Buu

This is why it caught my attention when celebrity/hip-hop artist “Lil Buu” gave an interview on Vlad TV stating that he is a second generation human clone who escaped from a cloning facility and that he was cloned by a company called Clonaid. According to him,

I was cloned by clonaid in Canada, my model number is 0112568…A lot of the memories from Clonaid were erased so that way the new gen can move forward with whatever new programming was made….They can remove a fragment of bone that’s located here (points to forehead, in between the eyes), and in this fragment of bone it stores all of your memories and consciousness, and with that, they can make a sufficient replica of yourself, a reproductive version of you including your memories, and you can be selective as to which ones you keep and don’t keep. This process has been around for quite some time.

This begs the question, is the same body required for the  transferal  of consciousness?

It’s interesting he mentions Canada because Wikileaks’ Julian Assange also confirmed this a few years ago. (source)

Clonaid actually made headline news all over the world when they announced they’d received a large donation to fun the cloning of a human child. Dr. Brigitte Boisselier, Ph.D. (scientific director of Clonaid) and a former chemist from Air Liquide were in charge of the operation, and for years the company was under regulatory suspicion and bombarded by media coverage. In 2001, she announced that a baby had been born, but following multiple lawsuits and controversy, no evidence of the human clone was provided, and mainstream media insinuated that the entire debacle had been a hoax. You can watch the press conference below when she decided to make the announcement.

Why would the Federal government, along with big governing bodies like the United Nations openly and publicly stress that human cloning is not allowed if it was not possible?

Here’s a statement from Bill Clinton during his presidency, regarding the establishments view on human cloning,

Our administration believes that there are loopholes that could allow the cloning of human beings….Therefore today I am issuing a directive that bans the use of any federal funds for any cloning of human beings.  Effective immedietley, no federal agency may support fund or undertake such activity. Of course a great deal of support and research in this area is supported by private funds, that is why I am urging the entire scientific and medical community, every foundation, every university, every industry that supports work in this area, to heed the federal governments example. I am asking for a volutary moratorum on the cloning of human beings…As we gain a fuller understanding of this technology…we must proceed with a conscious….(source)

The Raëliens

One thing used to ridicule Clonaid, who Kid Buu referred to as just one company, is the fact that they are headed up by what’s become known as a ‘cult.’ They’re called the Raëliens, and they believe that we are descendants of extraterrestrials, that we were created, in a sense, by intelligent extraterrestrials. They believe that Buddha, Jesus and many other similar figures are all messengers of this movement. Their purpose is to create awareness about the idea that if humans become peaceful enough, they will meet and be welcomed by these extraterrestrials. The Raëliens have had a long interest in human cloning for the purposes of extending human life.

This is no doubt interesting, especially if you are familiar with Collective Evolution. We’ve been creating awareness about UFOs and the extraterrestrial hypothesis since our inception. If you’d like to read our ET/UFO related articles, you can do so in the disclosure section of our website, here.

That being said, I’ven ever done any research on the Raëliens, and I don’t know much at all about them.

Ethical Questions

Obviously, there are moral issues and a number of questions to ask with regards to human cloning. The first thing on most people’s mind would be the question of, is it natural? Is it playing God? I don’t know, but what is natural? Perhaps it is in our nature to figure out how to extend and expand our material life. At the same time, I believe it’s important to have the recognition that we are talking about life and death at the material level, I do believe that the non-material aspect of ourselves (our soul) is something eternal.

The fact remains, this technology is out there and has been out there for a long time. It’s not uncommon to hear about new technology and developments fifty to a hundred years past their inception. New technologies are also subject to secrecy orders if the global elite decides to use them in any sort of way. All they have to do is justify it being a ‘national’ security issue and then they don’t have to tell anybody.

We don’t know much about cloning, the details, the possibilities, or how human consciousness and the human soul play a role. There are still many unanswered questions, but at the end of the day, it’s all about changing the human experience and exploring what we are capable of.  Perhaps we live in a world full of technologies that are far beyond what we can even comprehend? If these technologies can be brought out in order to benefit humanity, I’m all for them, but it’s really the intention and the consciousness behind that technology that determines if it’s at all necessary in any kind of way.

Clearly, there are still a lot of unanswered questions with regards to this, and that comes as a result of a lack of transparency. What also attracts me to this is the fact that the ‘powers that be’ seem to be sharply against it, and I doubt this is due to moral/ethical reasons. Does the release of cloning technology threaten the global control structure similar to the way free energy would? Are there powerful interests being threatened here? What are the implications of cloning?

Former CIA Officer & ITNJ Chief Counsel Shares Reality Of Elite Child Trafficking

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Child trafficking goes far beyond the sexual abuse of children. As Robert David Steele explains, it deals with torture, ritual abuse, organ harvesting and much more. It's a big issue that needs more awareness, and the ITNJ is taking action.

  • Reflect On:

    How did we get to the point where our 'leaders' in the most powerful positions are involved in such things? Is it appropriate to continue having them occupy high-ranking positions? Should we be supporting them? Processing our emotions is key.

Robert David Steele is a former Marine, CIA case officer and the co-founder of the US Marine Corps Intelligence Activity. His mission has been to spread the use of Open Source Intelligence (OSINT), and he’s written a number of handbooks on OSINT for NATO, the DIA and US Special Operations Forces.

He has been working in these fields for decades, and definitely knows a thing or two about what’s going on at the deepest levels of government and the military industrial complex. These are the people we have to start listening to for truth. He won’t get an interview on CNN, that’s for sure.

Lately, he’s been one of several credible people from ‘within’ creating awareness and speaking out about issues that mainstream media continues to ignore, who sometimes goes as far to label as a ‘conspiracy theory,’ no matter how much evidence sits behind the claims. One of these issues is child trafficking and abuse, a topic that’s gained a lot of attention since the 2016 American election as high ranking members of the global elite have been implicated in such activity, and have been implicated in such activity for a very long time.

Only now are we seeing it creep up into the mainstream narrative, despite the fact that they continually try and shut it down. Why? Because the owners and shareholders of these networks have been implicated in the activity discussed in this article.

Beyond Simple Abuse

In the video below, Robert gives a very brief outline of the issue, and how child trafficking goes far beyond the abuse of children. It goes into organ harvesting, children being bred for ritual abuse, born without a birth certificate, tortured, enslaved, mind-controlled and a much more.

Again, this information is hitting the mainstream like it never has before, one example would be the fact that an NBC news report implicated Hillary Clinton in covering up a massive pedophile ring in the heart of the State Department, another would be multiple ex-high ranking political officials claiming that both the Clinton’s engage in sex with minors, pointing towards their close relationship with Jeffrey Epstein (who also has Royal Family connections).

Epstein is now a registered sex offender. When it comes to the Vatican, there are always disturbing acts going on. Right now, the Pope’s right-hand man, George Pell, is in court for sexual assault, and a massive pedophile ring has been exposed where hundreds of boys were tortured and sexually abused, Pope Benedict’s brother was at the forefront of that controversy.

As far as the military industrial complex goes, Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney grilled Donald Rumsfeld on DynCorp about a private military contractor with ties to the trafficking of women and children. Years later, a top U.S. General who was the liaison between DynCorp and the U.S. Military was implicated in the sexual assault of teenaged girls. The list goes on and on, and it’s a long one. Oh yeah, let’s not forget about PizzaGate…

Individuals from within governments like former U.S. State Department official, Steve Pieczeni, have also been very outspoken on the subject of elite pedophile rings, and who is involved.

As Steele mentions below, ‘powerful’ organizations, like intelligence agencies for example, are not all ‘bad.’ He claims that they are filled with 90 percent good people, with good hearts and good intentions, and that the 10 percent that controls these areas are wrapped up in in-humane activity, like child trafficking.

Give the video below a listen to learn more, and you can check out more testimony from the International Tribunal on Natural Justice from others like Robert, police officers, MK Ultra survivors and many more who have knowledge of such activity.

Why Are We Learning About This?

This information can seem ‘dark’ and ‘grim,’ but how are we helping the situation if we completely ignore it and pretend it isn’t happening? It’s one thing to present this information with great judgment and anger, pushing us into a state of being and emotion that keeps us locked into lower frequencies, but it’s another thing all together to present it as  neutral facts that we can become aware of so we can begin to make way for more survivors, whistleblowers and witnesses come forward to share their testimony.

When this happens, action starts to take place, like what we are seeing at the ITNJ. So, if you want to know what to do with this information, share it, and help be the voice for those who still don’t have one. Process any emotions that come from learning this information. This is how we will move through the states of consciousness that project a world that keeps this type of stuff occurring. Evolving beyond the need for it, is often about switching our perspective about it and processing the emotions.
