Big Pharma stands to profit by cleaning out its medicine chests

Leading global pharmaceutical companies have started to view their vast portfolios of older, established prescription drugs as vehicles for raising large sums of cash to fuel development of new medicines with far higher profit margins.

Comment: The multi-trillion dollar Drug Cartel and its investors unfailingly place profit over human health. Ultimately it isn't important to the Cartel how profits are generated, simply that they are. So long as profits are produced, the lack of effectiveness of drugs in treating the primary cause of disease – or even the dangerous side-effects they cause when administered to patients – are essentially seen as irrelevant. To learn more about the true nature of the Drug Cartel, visit this page on our Foundation website.

‘Whether There Is Support for This Among the Public, I Do Not Know’

April 30, 2014

In an interview with De Standaard, European Council President Herman Van Rompuy argues that although the ‘United States of Europe’ is not a realistic scenario, the “whole European territory apart from Russia will in the long term be in some way involved with the EU”. He adds that “whether there is support for this among the public, I do not know. But we do it anyway.”
Read article on the National Review website (USA)

Comment: This highly revealing statement by Brussels EU Council President Herman Van Rompuy tells us everything we need to know about the undemocratic nature of the construct he represents. With neither the 28 ‘Commissars’ who make up the European Commission – the executive level of the Brussels EU – nor even Van Rompuy himself having been elected by the people, it is an illusion to think they would ever listen to the people or act in their interests. The entire Brussels EU structure therefore needs to be dismantled and, ultimately, replaced with a Europe for the People, by the People.
