U.S. deaths from painkiller overdose surge to record
Nearly 15,000 Americans died from an overdose of prescription painkillers in 2008, a record rate that has outstripped fatalities from illegal drugs like cocaine and heroin combined, U.S. health officials said on Tuesday.
Read article in the Montreal Gazette (Canada)
Comment: With its total annual global sales now approaching 1 trillion dollars, the pharmaceutical industry has a vested financial interest in users becoming addicted to its drugs. As such, by operating as middle-men between drug companies and addicts, the doctors and pharmacists responsible for people becoming hooked on painkillers are nothing less than narcotic dealers in white lab coats.

Drugmaker Grunenthal Is Sued Over Thalidomide Birth Defects
German drugmaker Grunenthal GmbH and companies now part of GlaxoSmithKline Plc and Sanofi hid results of studies that would have revealed birth defects caused by Thalidomide sooner, 13 Americans claimed in a lawsuit. Born with birth defects in from 1957 to 1962, seven men and six women sued the drugmakers and distributors Oct. 25 in state court in Philadelphia, claiming the businesses conspired to withhold information to boost sales and protect themselves from liability. The drug was then prescribed for morning sickness early in pregnancies.

Comment: The fraudulent business model of the pharmaceutical drug cartel needs to be terminated as soon as possible, in the interests of the health and lives of the seven billion people alive today and all future generations. Inevitably, the perpetrators of this genocidal fraud must be brought to justice and we consider that it is our responsibility to be active in the preparations for such trials. We are, therefore, building an international team of volunteers willing to work with us on these preparations. If you would like to help us, click here to learn more.

Political News

November 1, 2011

Death knell for a Greek debt deal
Paris and Berlin trembled overnight after Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou unveiled surprise plans to hold a rare national referendum on Greece’s latest bailout package. According to French newspaper Le Monde French President Nicolas Sarkozy was dismayed by the announcement, believing that the agreement that he and German Chancellor Angela Merkel had hammered out last week – which boosted the firepower of the eurozone’s bailout fund and forced banks to write off 50 per cent of their Greek debts – had been enough to ensure that the eurozone debt crisis would not spread to Italy.
Read article on the Business Spectator website (Australia)
Comment: Sarkozy’s reported “dismay” – and the Brussels EU’s shock and fury – stems from the fact that the Oil and Drug Cartel’s political stakeholders habitually eschew democracy in favor of dictatorship. For anyone who had previously been in any doubt about this, the passing of the dictatorial Lisbon Treaty – with less than 1% of Europe’s population being permitted to vote on it in referendums – provided the final sobering proof. In choosing to let the Greek people decide for themselves whether their country should now come under almost total control by the Brussels EU, Greek Prime Minister Papandreou would be making it possible for the dictatorial and financial domination of his country to be democratically rejected.
