DRUGGED TO DEATH: Prescription Drugs Killing The American Soldier

Peter Breggin MD has spoken on FOX News about the impact of psychiatric drugs on American soldiers. Veterans are being prescribed cocktails of unsafe drugs which are causing them severe harm. Some are dying in their sleep, others committing suicide, and numerous soldiers are accumulating chronic health problems. Some are hooked on drugs all of their lives.

Opiates have killed Americans in Afghanistan and there is an increase of heroin abuse in the Army.

Military drugs are an age old problem. Probably not so publicized, is the fact that Hitler drugged his own soldiers, The Nazi Death Machine. Stimulants were widely used in the German army and the doctors experimented on themselves. Even more striking is the widespread use of popular drugs after WWII.

Breggin maintained that “when you have so many soldiers on psychiatric drugs you are producing chronic mental patients.”

The facts definitely back up what Breggin has said. From CIR:

Prescriptions for four opiates – hydrocodone, oxycodone, methadone and morphine – have surged by 270 percent in the past 12 years, according to data CIR obtained through the Freedom of Information Act.

US Is Funding Syrian Rebels

The rhetorical question should be this. Why is the US funding Syrian rebels? Why must there be more foreign entanglement? Hasn’t there been enough damage in Libya, Iraq, and Afghanistan? How many bodies and lives need to be disrupted and displaced? Are these foreign policies working or are they failures? Why vote behind closed doors?

According to Reuters, “The weapons deliveries have been funded by the U.S. Congress, in votes behind closed doors, through the end of government fiscal year 2014, which ends on September 30, two officials said.’

The mass media wants the world to believe that the religious struggle is greater than it really is, and it seems as if the west is funding the violence to produce regime change. The media wants the public to believe that Bashar al-Assad, the President of Syria, is behind the revolution.

Assad is a member of the Alawites, a Shia based religion. He speaks fluent English and basic French. The Assad government is primarily sectarian.

“The Sunni refugees from Syria prove the international media wrong. Their experience shows that the Shia treat Sunnis as friends, while foreign militants stoke religious hatred and bring along nothing but devastation.” This is what a correspondent has stated in the news.

The ‘non-lethal’ aid to ‘moderate’ rebels is what the official storyline reads. Once again, no officials were available for comment.

There may be evidence that the US is supporting the Takfiri, a Muslim group that condones acts of violence.

Robert Baer, an American author and a former intelligence officer, wrote the following: “Takfiri generally refers to a Sunni Muslim who looks at the world in black-and-white; there are true believers and then there are nonbelievers, with no shades in between. A takfiri’s mission is to re-create the Caliphate according to a literal interpretation of the Qur’an.”

It appears that the US is acting in alliance with Saudi Arabia, France, the UK, Qatar, Kuwait, Israel and Turkey. The Lebanonization Strategy continues forward.

The Snowden Revelations Shed Some Light On Dark Mail

Encrypted email companies provide a private service that offers an alternative to commercial email servers. The recent Snowden revelations do shed some light on dark mail, as well as the targeting by government agencies.

Here’s an excellent audio presentation regarding the topic. DLIGU (Don’t Let It Go Unheard): Interview with Lavabit (Snowden email provider) Founder Ladar Levison.

In the Snowden case, it turns out that the company he allegedly used for email encryption, Lavabit, had to completely shut down after the U.S. government demanded the keys to encryption. Although it remains unconfirmed publicly, it is likely that Snowden was the target sought after by the feds.

The founder of the Lavabit, Ladar Levison, gave an interview with BBC News concerning internet privacy, which is one of the hottest topics of the year.

The founder did not want to compromise the accounts of his customers and he refused to hand over the encryption keys without a struggle. Levison has challenged the government and has gone to court over these sensitive issues.

Another tech company has teamed up with Lavabit and the Dark Mail Alliance may change the way email is done.

Tailored Access Operations (TAO) is a cyber-warfare intelligence-gathering unit that is used by the feds to ‘monitor’ numerous services: alibabaForumUser, doubleclickID, rocketmail, hi5Uid, hotmailCID, linkedin, mailruMrcu, msnMailToken64, qq, facebook, simbarUuid, twitter, yahoo, ymail, youTube.

“By collaboration with the British GHCQ, Google services could be attacked too, including Gmail.”

XKeyscore gives the NSA the ability to gain access to any computer in almost every country. In fact, the NSA has its own team of hackers.

Has DirecTV Dropped INSP? No More Good Night, John Boy?

DirecTV and INSP may be having difficulties reaching an agreement. Initially, DirecTV dumped the Weather Channel, and now according to reliable sources, the Inspiration Network may be in jeopardy. Here’s the big headline: DirecTV has dropped INSP! Is this for real? No more Good night, John Boy?

If this is truly the case, many viewers are going to be angry. It is estimated that approximately 74,631,000 American households receive INSP.

Regardless of the circumstance, DirecTV will not score any points if the network is lost. It’s a bit early to evaluate the situation and some say there are two sides of the story.

For the faithful who want to hear the Good night, John Boy again, there’s always this: Waltons: Complete Seasons 1-9 & Movie Collection.

And so it goes. Good night, John Boy.
