Daddy of OxyContin, Zionist Jew Raymond Sackler, Dies at 97

18 July 2017

WRAL (AP) — The co-founder of Purdue Pharma, a Connecticut company that markets the powerfully addictive painkiller OxyContin, has died at age 97.

Company officials say Dr. Raymond Sackler, a Greenwich resident, died Monday after a brief illness. He’s survived by his wife, Beverly, and their two sons.

In 1952, Sackler and his brother purchased Purdue, which was then based in New York City and is now headquartered in Stamford.

The company, owned by Sackler’s family, develops and markets medicines, health care products and antiseptics for pain management, including the opioid OxyContin. […]

29 July 2013

TEL AVIV UNIVERSITY — At a ceremony held at the United Nations Security Council chamber, the Honorable Ron Prosor, Permanent Representative of Israel to the UN, recognized Dr. Raymond Sacklerfor his exceptional support of Tel Aviv University and the State of Israel.

Championing the sciences

At an intimate luncheon in the UN complex following the ceremony, TAU President Joseph Klafter celebrated the dedication of Dr. Sackler, his wife, Beverly, and the Sackler family to the ideals of higher education. “Sackler is nothing short of a brand name at Tel Aviv University,” Prof. Klafter said. “Practically every step you take on campus will lead you to a Sackler-supported unit, from the Sackler Faculty of Medicine, which Raymond and his brothers dedicated back in 1976, to the Raymond and Beverly Sackler Faculty of Exact Sciences, the Sackler Cellular and Molecular Imaging Center, and the Raymond and Beverly Sackler Institute of Biophysics – to name just a few out of over thirty.” […]

Mangoes might be the ultimate superfood for diabetes: New science finds they control both blood sugar and blood pressure

(Natural News) Eating mangoes may hold potential in preventing metabolic disorders and diabetes, according to four separate studies presented at the 2017 Experimental Biology Conference. In one of the studies, a team of researchers at the Texas A&M University’s Department of Nutrition and Food Science examined how lean and obese individuals absorbed, metabolized, and excreted gallic acid, galloyl glycosides, and gallotannin following mango…

Guide to paying a small fine and making billions

Guide to paying a small fine and making billions

by Jon Rappoport

July 30, 2017

The key factor is: be a drug company.

In this case, Celgene. Their drugs are Thalomid and Revlimid. They are approved for multiple myeloma, one type of cancer.

Here’s the thing. Doctors can decide to prescribe drugs for uses which are not approved by the FDA, but the manufacturers can’t promote those “off-label” uses to doctors. That’s illegal.

A long-running suit against Celgene, launched by Beverly Brown, who used to be the company’s sales manager, contends that:

Celgene trained its sales team to promote off-label uses to doctors;

Celgene sales people intentionally lied about studies, claiming the studies showed the off-label uses were beneficial to patients;

And the company omitted vital warnings about the drugs’ uses from the drugs’ labels.

Back in 2014, the judge in the case, George King, slammed Celgene for trying to convince him to dismiss the case. King pointed out that the plaintiff, Beverly Brown, appeared to have direct knowledge of the scam, because company higher-ups laid out the details to her.

Finally, now, the lawsuit has been settled. Celgene will pay out $280 million.

But wait. Revlimid, one of the two Celgene drugs named in the suit, garnered a whopping $5 billion in sales, in 2015. FiercePharma, a website dedicated to industry news, predicts the drug will rake in $15 billion in 2022.

On top of all this, Celgene admits no wrongdoing in the lawsuit settlement.

Nice work if you can get it, and Celgene can.

There is an easy formula at work, if you’re a drug company.

Misrepresent the uses of a drug.

Promote it to the sky, to doctors, for purposes for which it wasn’t approved.

Therefore, make billions of dollars.

Get sued, go to court, force the case to drag on for years.

And finally settle up for chump change, admit nothing, promise nothing, and walk away, free as a bird.

That’s a plan.

That’s a workable plan, UP FRONT.

Before the drug is ever approved.

“Let’s see. We’ve got a drug for cancer. Hey, it’s highly toxic and it causes cancer in some people and, at best, it doesn’t really prolong survival in the patient for more than a few months of extreme suffering and pain—but we aren’t even talking about that. We’ve got a cancer drug, and we can get it approved for treating one type of cancer. Once that happens, we can promote it like hell to doctors for treating other cancers. That’s illegal, but who cares? Even if the federal government gets involved in the case, the most we can expect is a fine. Nobody will go to jail. So, BY SUCCESSFULLY PROMOTING THE DRUG FOR ILLEGAL USES, A VERY NECESSARY STEP, our profit picture will look great. Eventually, we’ll get sued. So what? We’ll pay a small fine, the drug will still be on the market, and life will be good. For us.”

Get it?

A drug company isn’t scrambling after the fact of getting sued, trying to figure out how to proceed. That would be fake news.

No, the company has the whole scenario figured out from the beginning.

“Dear Drug, when you were just a gleam in your parents’ eye, we knew your birth would be a wonderful event. And dear child, you’ve made us proud. With a push from us, you’ve exceeded all our expectations. You’ve grown up to be a winner. Here’s to you.”

By the way, if you want a good example of crony capitalism, as opposed to actual capitalism (in which buyer and seller voluntarily engage in commerce, the product does not cause harm, the people involved are honorable, the exchange of value for value isn’t regulated), you’ve just found one:

A medical drug’s manufacturer, and the federal government, and even the prescribing doctors, all know a drug is useless for off-label purposes, and also creates harm. But all the parties (cronies) feign ignorance, while protecting each other, and no law-enforcement agency charges any participant with a crime. All parties involved pretend, when the suit is filed and the settlement is reached, that justice has been done. One hand washes the other.

And, at the same time, if a researcher or doctor or layperson happens to come up with a non-toxic method of treating the disease for which the drug in question is the preferred option, and if that innovative natural method does no harm, and if responsible adults want to try the method…

The house comes down on the researcher’s head. The full force of “experts” and government enforcement agencies and mainstream doctors and the MSM press comes into play.

The “experts” and cronies, of course, trumpet concern for people’s health and lay claim to righteousness and ethics and science.

Sure. They’re messiahs, taking us into the medical promised- land.

Or, to put it slightly differently:

They’re scum of the Earth.

Leaked Military Footage of Antarctica Pyramids or Disinfo Campaign?

image credit: iflscience.com


(Stillness in the Storm Editor) This is a rather interesting set of images that suggests there could be pyramids in Antarctica. Of course, they look just like mountains, and can easily be dismissed as nothing but a natural occurrence. However, recall that the Bosnian pyramid, one of the largest in the world, looks like a natural formation. It was only after investigation with ground penetrating radar and other image gathering technologies that it became clear it was a pyramid covered by debris and overgrowth. Could these be examples of very old pyramids that have been mistaken as natural features? I can't confirm if they are pyramids, but this is a subject matter worthy of investigation. 

Update (6:02pm EST): A reader sent me a link to a video of B Roll footage, shot in Deadhorse, Alaska February 22, 2017. This suggests that some of the footage in the video featured below is not from Antarctica. However, there are indeed pyramid shaped land features there, which, as I suggested above, could be pyramids or not. Regardless of the fact the footage doesn't appear to be from Antarctica, the idea that pyramids are hiding everywhere on the planet still has merit and is worth investigating.
