FDA Approves Opioid Painkiller 1000X Stronger Than Morphine Despite Opioid Overdose Epidemic

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The FDA just approved a painkiller 1,000 times stronger than morphine, despite the fact that the U.S. is already experiencing a deadly opioid drug crisis that takes over 100 lives a day.

  • Reflect On:

    The drug epidemic here is serious, at the same time, we need to get to the root causes of individual addiction, and address the real key, inner reasons addiction occurs. A lot of it has its route in some sort of emotional trauma.

Government health regulators are (unfortunately) nearly impossible to trust these days as so much corruption has plagued organizations like the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). It’s really shocking how they’re still able to operate the way they do. There are countless examples, whether it be the conflicts of interest that arise from multiple corporations trying to get a product approved, like cosmetics, or individuals from within who are experiencing a moral crisis and feel the need to let the public know. The spider papers were a great example of this, where more than a dozen scientists came together and let the public know.

It appears that our mission is being influenced and shaped by outside parties and rogue interests… and Congressional intent for our agency is being circumvented by some of our leaders. What concerns us most, is that it is becoming the norm and not the rare exception. (source)

Another great example that I’d like to mention would Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs), the FDA was forced to divulge documents pertaining to their safety and approval. It turns out they lied to get them approved through a massive brainwashing campaign, where even scientists were fooled. This makes sense, given the fact we now have numerous studies clearly showing cause for concern. Health and environmental issues have been cited as the reason why so many countries around the world have completely banned them. This sharing of information came via a lawsuit, you can read more about that here. To read more about GMOs and cancer, you can refer to this article.

And then, we have the pharmaceutical industry, which completely ‘owns’ these government regulatory agencies. There is always a revolving door between government and big pharma, corporations today basically set policy, they are above the government. I often refer to America today as one big corporatocracy, not a democracy. There are multiple examples of pharmaceutical fraud, take, for example, not disclosing all of the information that comes from their clinical trials. They did this with anti-depressant drugs, which were found to be very harmful and borderline completely useless. This is all about money, marketing, and brainwashing…Unfortunately, it has nothing to do with health. You can read more about that in detail, here.

This is why when the FDA recently approved a painkiller that’s 1,000 times stronger than morphine, it set off alarm bells among health activists. On November 2nd,  the approval of an extremely potent opioid tablet that’s 10 times more powerful than Fentanyl happened. It’s called Dsuvia, which has been developed as an alternative to IV painkillers, took place.

Dsuvia, this new project, has been approved despite the fact that tens of thousands of annual deaths have been attributed to opioid-type painkillers, and that’s just in the United States alone.

As Greenmedinfo.com points out:

Lawmakers and consumer advocacy groups have expressed deep concern about this decision. For instance, Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass, released the follwing statement on Friday: “There was no public health need to approve this formulation of supercharged fentayl in the face of these queestions, opposition from one FDA avisory committee chair, and without the full participation of another advisory committee devoted to drug safety.

The truth is, based on what we know, this super strong opioid medication is going to be abused, and it’s going to kill people.

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), “Opioid overdoses accounted for more than 42,000 deaths in 2016, more than any previous year on record. An estimated 40% of opioid overdose deaths involved a prescription opioid.”

This same department outlines how the pharmaceutical industry pushed to misinform the public and medical community that patients taking this medication would not become addicted, which in turn lead to increased prescriptions of the drugs.

In the CE article ‘Study Reveals Big Pharma Paid Doctors Millions of Dollars To Push Opioids,’ Kalee Brown makes a cogent argument that the Opioid epidemic, which is responsible for at least two thirds of the record 72,000 overdose deaths in the U. S. last year, is the product of a carefully crafted strategy that stems from a sinister alignment of  self-interest between Big Pharma, doctors, and the government. This strategy, it would seem, has no limits to its wickedness

It’s no secret that Big Pharma is a money-making machine. Many even suggest that they design drugs with negative side effects so you remain sick, thus growing their market of sick consumers — a view supported by the reality that doctors get compensated for selling you drugs, not for getting you off of them. – Kalee Brown

Alternative Methods For Killing Pain

Thankfully, with growing amounts of awareness in the field of medical and scientific fraud, many people are gravitating towards other methods that have proven to be effective.  Medical cannabis is one of the multiple examples that have shown to have success when it comes to chronic pain. One thing is for certain when it comes to our medications, they are not made with the intention to heal, they are made with the intention to manage the disease, and they are a catalyst for many other complications that can clearly arise from their long-term use.

The Takeaway

The takeaway here is that it’s OK to question your doctor, in fact, the more we rely on ourselves, critical thinking and research, the more likely it is we’ll be privy to information that some doctors are still not aware of. The big problem with these drugs though doesn’t come from doctors, it’s from people who don’t need them (if any one does), who have issues, that can simply get their hands on them too easily.

The main reason we take so many drugs is that drug companies don’t sell drugs, they sell lies about drugs. This is what makes drugs so different from anything else in life… Virtually everything we know about drugs is what the companies have chosen to tell us and our doctors… the reason patients trust their medicine is that they extrapolate the trust they have in their doctors into the medicines they prescribe.

The patients don’t realize that, although their doctors may know a lot about diseases and human physiology and psychology, they know very, very little about drugs that’ve been carefully concocted and dressed up by the drug industry… If you don t think the system is out of control, please email me and explain why drugs are the third leading cause of death… – Peter Grotze (source)

At the end of the day, especially when it comes to health, we really need to question what exactly is going on, what we are putting into our body, and if it’s really the right decision. Don’t be so quick to brush off alternative methods, because alternative methods were once the backbone of successful healing. The world didn’t plumage into disease until the modern day medical industry came along.

An uncovered Australian report performed by their Department of Defence. “Scientific Intelligence — General — Unidentified Flying Objects” is trending again. Those who have done extensive research on UFOs will find the Australian version of disclosure to be far more intellectually honest than the American version. Albeit it was conducted decades ago.

According to ex-US intelligence official Luis Elizondo, the Defense Department’s Inspector General is presently conducting three reviews. The inquiries vary from the Department of Defense’s handling of UFO claims to Elizondo’s alleged whistleblower retribution. The open IG cases are crucial to Australia’s report because they establish beyond a shadow of a doubt that the US Department of Defense is being dishonest and shady when it comes to the UFO subject. For decades, Australia has been a loyal friend of the United States. Within Australia’s boundaries, they share a military installation (Pine Gap). When a close defense ally’s intelligence agencies determined that the US was not being intellectually honest in its approach, perhaps it is reasonable to conclude that there is more to the tale than the 144 incidents studied since 2004 by the UAPTF.

The CIA became alarmed at the overloading of military communications during the mass sightings of 1952 and considered the possibility that the USSR may take advantage of such a situation.

Australian UFO study.

According to the summary, OSI, acting through the Robertson-Panel, encouraged the USAF to use Project Blue Book to publicly “debunk” UFOs. In a tragic twist of fate, when Australian authorities sought explanations from the US Air Force, the allegation was debunked. The authors of the study were depicted as conspiratorial and even crazy by the US Air Force. Ross Coulthart reported this, and it may be heard in a recent Project Unity interview. Courthart is an award-winning investigative journalist who is drawn to forbidden subjects. He also stated on the same podcast that a senior US Navy official identified as Nat Kobitz told him that the US had been in the midst of reverse-engineering numerous non-human craft. According to his obituary, Mr. Kobitz was a former Director of Research and Development at Naval Sea Systems Command.

PGA Tour To End COVID Testing For Both Vaccinated & Non-Vaccinated Players

CE Staff Writer 4 minute read

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The PGA Tour has announced that it will stop testing players every week, regardless of whether they have been vaccinated or not.

  • Reflect On:

    Are PCR tests appropriate to identify infectious people? Should people who are healthy and not sick be tested at all, anywhere?

Before you begin...

Take a moment and breathe. Place your hand over your chest area, near your heart. Breathe slowly into the area for about a minute, focusing on a sense of ease entering your mind and body. Click here to learn why we suggest this.

The picture you see above is of John Rahm, a professional golfer on the PGA tour being carted off the golf course after tournament officials told him he had COVID. He was healthy and had no symptoms, yet was forced to withdraw from the tournament. He was told in front of the camera’s, and a big scene was made out of the event. You would think something like that, especially when you are a big time sports figure, would be done behind closed doors with some privacy.

Earlier on in June a spokesperson for the PGA Tour said that more than 50 percent of players on the PGA tour have been vaccinated. Although it seems that the majority of players on the tour will be fully vaccinated judging by this statement, it does leave a fairly large minority who won’t be, and that’s something we’re seeing across the globe as COVID vaccine hesitancy remains high for multiple reasons.

We are pleased to announce, after consultation with PGA Tour medical advisors, that due to the high rate of vaccination among all constituents on the PGA Tour, as well as other positively trending factors across the country, testing for COVID-19 will no longer be required as a condition of competition beginning with the 3M Open. – PGA tour Senior VP Tyler Dennis

The tour recently announced that the testing of players every week will stop starting in July for both the vaccinated and the unvaccinated. This was an unexpected announcement given the fact that, at least it seems in some countries, vaccinated individuals will enjoy previous rights and freedoms that everyone did before the pandemic. Travelling without need to quarantine and possibly in the future not having to be tested could be a few of those privileges. Others may include attending concerts, sporting events, or perhaps even keeping their job depending on whether or not their employer deems it to be mandatory, if that’s even legally possible. We will see what happens.

Luckily for professional golfers, regardless of their vaccination status they won’t have to worry about testing positive for COVID, especially if they’re not sick. This is the appropriate move by the PGA tour, who is represented by their players and it’s a move that the players themselves may have had a say in. It’s important because PCR tests are not designed nor are they appropriate for identifying infectious people. A number of scientists have been emphasizing this since the beginning of the pandemic. More recently, a letter to the editor published in the Journal of infection explain why more than half of al “positive” PCR tests are likely to have been people who are not infectious, otherwise known as “false positives.”

This is why the Swedish Public Health agency has a notice on their website explaining how and why polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests are not useful for determining if someone is infected with COVID or if someone can transmit it to others, and it’s better to use someone who is actually showing symptoms as a judgement call of whether or not they could be infected or free from infection.

PCR tests using a high cycle threshold are extremely sensitive. An article published in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases found that among positive PCR samples with a cycle count over 35, only 3 percent of the samples showed viral replication. This can be interpreted as, if someone tests positive via PCR when a Ct of 35 or higher is used, the probability that said person is actually infected is less than 3%, and the probability that said result is a false positive is 97 percent. This begs the question, why has Manitoba, Canada, for example, using cycle thresholds of up to 45 to identify “positive” people?

When it comes to golf, the fact that spread occurring in an outdoor setting is highly unlikely could have been a factor, but it’s also important to mention that asymptomatic spread within one’s own household is also considerably rare. It really makes you wonder what’s going on here, doesn’t it?
