FDA accused of international kidnapping. That’s How They Roll.

My Commentary
Even though this is a vaccine blog I feel it justified to post this FDA ‘event’, since this same FDA is responsible for the ‘pushing’ (or rubber stamping) of dangerous drugs AND vaccines onto an un-witted public.

It shouldn’t come as any surprise to those of us aware of the ‘CRIMINAL’ behavior of the FDA, that they would be unconstitutionally acting as ‘their own’ police department. What may surprise even the population with a clue is that the FDA is acting as CIA agents going abroad and kidnapping people.

The FDA is a cleaver COVER acronym for the pharmacological Rockefeller et.al monopoly to not only highjack the United States food and drug regulatory system but, to act as it’s own judicial system as well. If you ever had a doubt about this FACT read this ‘event’.

There can be NO DOUBT that the FDA was initially created for the Pharmacological Industrial Complex to take over and control when starring directly at the FACTS of the gross conflict of interest that resides within it. There can also be no doubt that the reason for the creation and control of such an agency is to STAMP OUT ALL NATURAL HEALING that COMPETES with big pharma’s drug monopoly. Of course it did NOT start out this way. The level of control, AS ALWAYS, happens INCREMENTALLY. This agency is so out of control today, had you told the public when it was created that the FDA would OUTLAW lime growers to ‘claim’ limes prevent a ‘disease’ called scurvy, most would have said that would be going “way too far” and could NEVER happen. Never say Never! Even though limes ‘preventing a disease’ is NOT A ‘CLAIM’ but a well known ‘FACT’, the FDA intentionally and purposefully distorts FACTS as claims to persecute anyone HEALING without AUTHORIZATION from this criminal organization.

So if anyone should be hauled in front of a FAIR and JUST court it would most certainly have to be the FDA itself for crimes BEYOND the ‘claims’ that this agency is working FOR THE BENEFIT of the general welfare of the U.S. population. Where such FALSE claims have in fact endangered the general welfare of the population.

FDA accused of international kidnapping, illegal detention of prominent Ecuadorian herbalist

21 December 2009
Pam Rotella

Allegations of kidnapping and illegal detention by the US Food and Drug Administration are being made after its seizure of a prominent herbalist from Ecuador.

Greg Caton, owner of Alpha Omega Labs, was seized from Ecuador in a move outside of extradition procedures, and against the orders of an Ecuadorian Federal judge. The alleged kidnapping occurred three days prior to a pending hearing for Caton, having the appearance of an attempt to evade compliance with the court’s expected ruling.

Christopher Kelly of the FDA refused comment on the FDA’s current actions in Ecuador, or its legal argument for subverting extradition procedures within Ecuador and removing Caton via police seizure. Kelly referred inquiries to the US Marshals and US Attorneys offices.

When contacted, a US Marshals spokesman denied involvement in the seizure of Caton from Ecuador, and said that the Marshals’ role in this case would be their usual duty of holding Federal prisoners, probably after Caton reached Florida. The US Attorneys office was also contacted for comment but has not responded.

Speaking via phone from Ecuador on Saturday, Caton’s wife Cathryn said that the FDA finally explained its reason for her husband’s abduction during Florida court proceedings. The FDA claimed that Greg Caton violated his supervised probation under a 2003 plea of selling “unapproved drugs.”

“Selling unapproved drugs” is a charge usually filed against herbalists who sell herbs and also make claims about the herbs’ medicinal properties. The FDA does not allow medicinal claims about food or herbal products by those who also sell them. No actual “drugs,” in the traditional sense of the term, were involved in the 2003 Caton case.

Cathryn Caton said that Caton’s company Alpha Omega Labs (AltCancer.com) had been selling herbal products after Caton’s release in the US, but that the herbs were sold from Ecuador where herb sales are legal along with information on their medicinal properties. In fact, Caton had moved his company to Ecuador specifically because he could continue working with herbal remedies without restrictions on the information provided to customers.

At issue is whether Caton’s herb sales in Ecuador would violate Caton’s probation in the United States. This legal issue could not be addressed in Ecuador, as Caton was seized before his court date there. It is possible that Caton’s abduction was meant to preempt such legal precedent from being set on this matter.

After arriving in Florida, Greg Caton was given a detention hearing and arraigned for violating his supervised release. A hearing is scheduled for December 28th to move him to Louisiana. According to his wife, Caton will probably be held in Florida until early next year, and then moved to Louisiana for hearings on probation violation charges. So far, Caton has been represented by a court-appointed attorney.

The method used to remove Caton from the country — kidnapping — is probably the most egregious charge leveled against the FDA. Before his scheduled court date, Ecuadorian police illegally removed Greg Caton from his cell in Ecuador without court authorization, and put him on an American Airlines jet. One of Cathryn Caton’s contacts at the airport recognized a US State Department employee, and happened to know the man’s identity due to his presence at Greg Caton’s hearings in Ecuador. Caton’s contact informed her that the State Department employee was directing the Ecuadorian police on how to slip Greg Caton out of Ecuador.

The Ecuadorian Federal Judge in charge of Caton’s appeal was contacted and went to the airport in person, where he informed American Airlines that they were engaged in an illegal action, and presented paperwork ordering the release of Greg Caton. American Airlines refused to allow Caton off of the plane, and claimed that they were not subject to Ecuadorian laws even while in Ecuador, that they were technically US soil (a privilege enjoyed by embassies). The jet was then allowed to leave the airport, and Caton was transported to Miami, Florida. The Ecuadorian police officers flew out of the country on the airplane with Caton according to witnesses, but the US State Department employee who directed the action stayed in Ecuador. Cathryn Caton wants to know who paid for their airline tickets.

Along with questions of why the FDA felt entitled to subvert the Ecuadorian legal system to capture a mere herbalist, tactics by the agency prior to Caton’s court appeal are also being scrutinized. The Catons claim that one FDA agent in particular, John Armand, seemed to be “rogue,” and engaged in questionable tactics such as using a witness accused of embezzling $20,000 from Caton’s company as a witness against Caton. Cathryn Caton suspected that the employee was led to believe that landing her bosses in jail would help her to avoid jail time herself. Caton witnessed the woman with the FDA agent in court, making claims that helped to build the agent’s case.

The FDA also refused to comment on whether Armand or other agents in charge of Caton’s case had past affiliations with pharmaceutical companies or competitors of Caton’s products. One well-known and widely criticized fault of the Food and Drug Administration is the “revolving door” between pharmaceutical companies and the agency charged with regulating them, the FDA. Employees of the FDA often are hired from drug companies, or are offered high-paid jobs at the very pharmaceutical companies whose drugs they helped to approve. This cozy relationship is seen as a major flaw in the way drugs are approved and regulated in the United States.

In addition to the FDA’s star witness being an accused embezzler, Caton was also told that the judge who signed her husband’s original deportation order had been bribed with promises of green cards for his relatives in the United States. (Caton will not identify the witness or the name/position of the US agent offering green cards, for the protection of her witness.)

The appeal of that judge’s deportation order was scheduled to be heard by a Federal Ecuadorian judge with no such questions surrounding his integrity. However, that higher judge’s orders at the airport in Guayaquil were ignored and Greg Caton was flown out of the country. Cathryn Caton is working with the political process in Ecuador to have the people responsible for her husband’s abduction investigated and prosecuted. President Correa of Ecuador had already expelled 2 diplomats after the FDA attempted a similar abduction of Greg Caton in 2008.

Caton’s company, Alpha Omega Labs (AltCancer.com), is the maker of anti-cancer herbal blends such as “Black Salve” (a bloodroot-based topical product) and “Cansema” (a chaparral-based capsule blend). Notably, a new cancer drug named “Chemex” based on chaparral was mentioned on Caton’s own web site:

“Chaparral (Larrea tridentata, Larrea mexicata) — An herb long reverred for its miraculous medicinal properties by Indians of the Southwest U.S., chaparral’s secret is known to be contained in a substance known as NDGA (nordihydroguauretic acid). This organic anti-oxidant is the basis of several recent cancer cures which have been filed with the U.S. patent office, most by Chemex Pharmaceutical of Fort Collins, Colorado (USA). The FDA has granted drug status to Chemex for a remedy for a pre-cancerous skin remedy (actinic keratosis) which uses NDGA as its base. Our products contain specially harvested chaparral which have been specimened and known to contain 16-18% NDGA by weight for maximum concentration.”

Bloodroot-based topical solutions are traditionally used to treat skin cancer patients. In his book “Spontaneous Healing,” Andrew Weil, MD, mentioned using bloodroot paste on his dog. Weil was satisfied with the results.

The Herd Immunity Pseudo Science Fraud

My Commentary:

I have long advocated that the so called ‘science’ behind ‘herd immunity’ is as big of a fraud as, well, now Climategate. (manmade global warming. The idea originally hatched out of, where else?, The Club of Rome in the 1970’s.)

Below, is Dr, Blaylock’s report on this ‘herd Immunity’ fraud. Dr, Blaylock is certainly MORE than qualified to give an ‘expert’ and ‘scientific’ analysis and breakdown of this scam to push forced mass vaccinations in the name of eugenics.

BUT FIRST…

I go to message boards from time to time, where people link to this article and, I read where some ‘resident of the board expert’ chimes in… “Dr. Blaylock is regarded a quack”. then provide links to websites THAT HAVE THERE OWN SPECIAL PROBLEMS. For instance, these websites call Dr. Blaylock a quack on one hand, while on the other, use Dr. Offit AS A TRUSTED SOURCE!!!. Any doctor such as Dr. Offit wanting to inject children / babies with 100,000 vaccines as, Offit has been quoted as saying, OBVIOUSLY DOES NOT HAVE HIS HEAD SCREWED ON STRAIGHT. Yet, what Dr. Offit DOES DO very well I might add, is play ball for big pharma and, IS AN ALL PRO ALL STAR PLAYER FOR THEM.

If you ever wondered why you may NOT have heard of Dr. Russell Blaylock, it’s BECAUSE THE SAME CORPORATE MEDIA THAT PUT’S OFFIT ALL OVER THE PLACE DARES NOT WHISPER DR. RUSSELL BLAYLOCK’S NAME AND, HERE IS WHY…

Dr. Russell Blaylock’s credentials
Dr. Russell Blaylock is a board certified neurosurgeon, author and lecturer. He attended the Louisiana State University School of Medicine in New Orleans and completed his general surgical internship and neurosurgical residency at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, South Carolina. During his residency training he worked with the eminent neurosurgeon, Dr. Ludwig Kempe. Together they developed the transcallosal removal of intraventricular tumors, a technique still used today. For the past 25 years he has practiced neurosurgery in addition to having a nutritional practice. He recently retired from his neurosurgical duties to devote his full attention to nutritional studies and neuroscience research.

Blaylock has authored three books on nutrition and wellness: Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills, Health and Nutrition Secrets That Can Save Your Life and Natural Strategies for The Cancer Patient. He co-authored the book Cellular and Molecular Biology of Autism Spectrum Disorders with Dr. Anna Strunecka and written over 40 papers for peer-reviewed journals. Blaylock serves on the editorial staff of the Fluoride Journal, the Journal of the American Physicians and Surgeons and the Journal of the American Nutriceutical Association. Blaylock has been appointed to serve on the Scientific Advisory Board of the Life Extension Foundation. He is the 2004 recipient of the Integrity in Science Award granted by the Weston A. Price Foundation. An in-demand guest for radio and television programs, he lectures extensively to both lay and professional medical audiences on a variety of nutrition-related subjects. He previously served as clinical assistant professor of neurosurgery at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson, Miss. and is currently a visiting professor of biology at Belhaven University, also in Jackson.

I can’t imagine how someone with such a resume becomes quack. BTW- Not mentioned within the resume above concerning the surgical techniques he’s personally invented. He holds several patents in neural surgery that are used world wide. Hardly the work of a ‘QUACK’.

Dr. Blaylock IS FAR MORE QUALIFIED THAN DR. OFFIT TO GIVE YOU THE SCIENCE OF WHY VACCINES DAMAGE THE NERVOUS SYSTEM. No, he doesn’t play ball for big pharma! PEOPLES LIVES ARE MUCH MORE IMPORTANT TO HIM.

-Forced Vaccinations, Government, and the Public Interest-

By Dr. Russell Blaylock, M.D.
December 2009

Those who are observant have noticed a dangerous trend in the United States, as well as worldwide, and that is the resorting of various governments at different levels to mandating forced vaccination upon the public at large. My State of Mississippi has one of the most-restrictive vaccine-exemption laws in the United States, where exemptions are allowed only upon medical recommendation. Ironically, this is only on paper, as many have had as many as three physicians, some experts in neurological damage caused by vaccines, provide written calls for exemption, only to be turned down by the State’s public-health officer.

Worse are the States, such as Massachusetts, New Jersey and Maryland, where forced vaccinations have either been mandated by the courts, the state legislature, or have such legislation pending. All of such policies strongly resemble those policies found in National Socialist empires, Stalinist countries, or Communist China.

When public-health officers are asked for the legal justification for such draconian measures as forcing people to accept vaccines that they deem either a clear and present danger to themselves and their loved ones or have had personal experience with serious adverse reactions to such vaccines, they usually resort to the need to protect the public.

One quickly concludes that if the vaccines are as effective as being touted by the public-health officials, then why should one fear the unvaccinated? Obviously the vaccinated would have at least 95% protection. This question puts them in a very difficult position. Their usual response is that a “small” percentage of the vaccinated will not have sufficient protection and would still be at risk. Now, if they admit what the literature shows, that vaccine failure rates are much higher than the 5% they claim, they must face the next obvious question – then why should anyone take the vaccine if there is a significant chance it will not protect?

When pressed further, they then resort to their favorite justification, the Holy Grail of the vaccine proponents – herd immunity. This concept is based upon the idea that 95% (and some now say 100%) of the population must be vaccinated to prevent an epidemic. The percentages needing vaccination grows progressively. I pondered this question for some time before the answer hit me. Herd immunity is mostly a myth and applies only to natural immunity – that is, contracting the infection itself.

Is Herd Immunity Real?

In the original description of herd immunity, the protection to the population at large occurred only if people contracted the infections naturally. The reason for this is that naturally-acquired immunity lasts for a lifetime. The vaccine proponents quickly latched onto this concept and applied it to vaccine-induced immunity. But, there was one major problem – vaccine-induced immunity lasted for only a relatively short period, from 2 to 10 years at most, and then this applies only to humoral immunity. This is why they began, silently, to suggest boosters for most vaccines, even the common childhood infections such as chickenpox, measles, mumps, and rubella.

Then they discovered an even greater problem, the boosters were lasting for only 2 years or less. This is why we are now seeing mandates that youth entering colleges have multiple vaccines, even those which they insisted gave lifelong immunity, such as the MMR. The same is being suggested for full-grown adults. Ironically, no one in the media or medical field is asking what is going on. They just accept that it must be done.

That vaccine-induced herd immunity is mostly myth can be proven quite simply. When I was in medical school, we were taught that all of the childhood vaccines lasted a lifetime. This thinking existed for over 70 years. It was not until relatively recently that it was discovered that most of these vaccines lost their effectiveness 2 to 10 years after being given. What this means is that at least half the population, that is the baby boomers, have had no vaccine-induced immunity against any of these diseases for which they had been vaccinated very early in life. In essence, at least 50% or more of the population was unprotected for decades.

If we listen to present-day wisdom, we are all at risk of resurgent massive epidemics should the vaccination rate fall below 95%. Yet, we have all lived for at least 30 to 40 years with 50% or less of the population having vaccine protection. That is, herd immunity has not existed in this country for many decades and no resurgent epidemics have occurred. Vaccine-induced herd immunity is a lie used to frighten doctors, public-health officials, other medical personnel, and the public into accepting vaccinations.

When we examine the scientific literature, we find that for many of the vaccines protective immunity was 30 to 40%, meaning that 70% to 60% of the public has been without vaccine protection. Again, this would mean that with a 30% to 40% vaccine-effectiveness rate combined with the fact that most people lost their immune protection within 2 to 10 year of being vaccinated, most of us were without the magical 95% number needed for herd immunity. This is why vaccine defenders insist the vaccines have 95% effectiveness rates.

Without the mantra of herd immunity, these public-health officials would not be able to justify forced mass vaccinations. I usually give the physicians who question my statement that herd immunity is a myth a simple example. When I was a medical student almost 40 years ago, it was taught that the tetanus vaccine would last a lifetime. Then 30 years after it had been mandated, we discovered that its protection lasted no more than 10 years. Then, I ask my doubting physician if he or she has ever seen a case of tetanus? Most have not. I then tell them to look at the yearly data on tetanus infections – one sees no rise in tetanus cases. The same can be said for measles, mumps, and other childhood infections. It was, and still is, all a myth.

The entire case for forced mass vaccination rest upon this myth and it is important that we demonstrate the falsity of this idea. Neil Z. Miller, in his latest book The Vaccine Information Manual, provides compelling evidence that herd immunity is a myth.

The Road to Hell is Paved with Good Intentions

Those pushing mandatory vaccination for an ever-growing list of diseases are a mixed bag. Some are quite sincere and truly want to improve the health of the United States. They believe the vaccine-induced herd immunity myth and likewise believe that vaccines are basically effective and safe. These are not the evil people.

A growing number are made of those with a collectivist worldview and see themselves as a core of elite wise men and women who should tell the rest of us what we should do in all aspects of our lives. They see us as ignorant cattle, who are unable to understand the virtues of their plan for America and the World. Like children, we must be made to take our medicine – since, in their view, we have no concept of the true benefit of the bad-tasting medicine we are to be fed.

I have also found that a small number of people in the regulatory agencies and public health departments would like to speak out but are so intimidated and threatened with dismissal or destruction of their careers, that they remain silent. As for the media, they are absolutely clueless.

I have found that “reporters” (we have few real journalists these days) rarely understand what they are reporting on and always trust and rely upon people in positions of official power, even if those people are unqualified to speak on the subject. Most of the time they run to the Centers for Disease Control or medical university to seek answers. I cannot count the number of times I have seen university department heads interviewed when it was obvious they had no clue as to the subject being discussed. Few such professors will pass up an opportunity to appear on camera or be quoted in a newspaper.

One must also appreciate that such reporters and editors are under an enormous economic strain, as vaccine manufacturers are major advertisers in all media outlets and for an obvious reason – it controls content. A number of excellent stories on such medical subjects are spiked every day. That means we will always be relegated to the “fringe media” as our media outlets are called. Despite the high quality of the journalism in many of the “fringe” outlets, they have a much smaller audience. And despite this we are having an enormous effect on the debate.

As the Public Awakens, the Collectivist Becomes Desperate

John Jewkes, in his book Ordeal by Planning, observed that as the British collectivists began to see opposition rise to their grandiose plans, they became more desperate and aggressive in their reaction. They then initiated a campaign of smearing their opponents and blaming every failure on the unwillingness of the people to accept the planner’s dictates without question. We certainly have seen this in this debate –opponents to forced vaccinations are referred to as fringe scientists, kooks, uneducated, confused, and enemies of public safety – reminiscent of Stalin’s favorite phrase, “enemy of the people.”

This desperation is based upon their fear that the public might soon catch on to the fact that the entire vaccine program is based upon nonsense, fear, and concocted fairy tales. One special fear of theirs is that the public might discover the fact that most vaccines are contaminated with a number of known and yet-to-be discovered viruses, bacteria, viral fragments, and DNA/RNA fragments. And, further, that our science demonstrates that these contaminants could lead to a number of slowly-developing degenerative diseases, including degenerative diseases of the brain. This is rarely discussed but is of major importance in this debate.

The idea that adults and their children would be forced to submit to being injected with dozens of these organisms and organic fragments is terrifying. No regulatory agency is tracking to see if chronic diseases are rising in the vaccinated, yet we have compelling evidence of a massive rise in all autoimmune diseases, neurodegenerative diseases, and certain cancers since the advent of a dramatic increase in the number of vaccines being mandated.

Of special concern is the finding that many of the contaminant organisms can pass from generation to generation. For example, new studies have found that SV-40, a major contaminant of the polio vaccine until 1963, not only existed as a latent virus for the lifetime of those exposed to the vaccine but was being passed on to the next generation, primarily by way of sperm, something called vertical transmission. This means that every generation from now on will be infected with this known carcinogenic virus. There is also compelling evidence that some polio vaccines manufactured after 1963 may contain SV-40 virus.

What makes the SV-40 contamination disaster of such concern is its association with so many cancers – including mesothelioma, medulloblastoma, ependymoma, meningioma, astrocytoma, oligodendroglioma, pituitary adenoma, glioblastoma, osteosarcomas, non-Hodgkins lymphoma, papillary thyroid carcinomas, and anaplastic thyroid carcinomas.

The Federal government has gone to enormous links to cover up this association, despite the powerful scientific evidence that this vaccine infected at least a hundred million people worldwide with this carcinogenic virus. And, it took over 40 years just to get this far. Linking vaccine contaminations and immunoexcitotoxicity to the drastic rise in neurodegenerative diseases will probably take even longer because of the widespread growth of entrenched powers high in government and their control of the media, which is equally extensive. The fact that powerful, enormously wealthy foundations, such as the Ford Foundation, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and Rockefeller series of foundations, are supporting forced vaccination greatly enhances the power of governments all over the World.

These foundations operate in the shadows, influencing legislation and government actions through the World Health Organization and individual governmental bodies. Behind every call for forced vaccinations, mandated quarantines, and home invasions, one can find one of these foundations providing the money as well as experts. Remember, the largest of the pharmaceutical-vaccine manufacturers are also providing much of the money for the foundations and serving on the boards of these foundations. The Rockefellers either owned outright or had controlling interest in all of the major pharmaceutical companies. This has given them absolute and extremely powerful access to the reins of power at all levels. Yet, they can be defeated by the truth.

Flu Vaccine Clinic Turnout Lower Than Expected HAHAHA!!

My Commentary:
When the establishment gave the green light to finally give out all the vaccines (at 25 bucks a pop) THEY HAD SITTING ON THE SHELF not many showed up.

What’s really telling about this is Boston.com’s comment section to this article. It seems the floodgates had opened to the flu shot opposition and Boston.com apparently shut it down as it was getting started. Go figure?

Boston.com
Boston public health officials had hoped to inoculate 5,000 residents in Hyde Park yesterday against H1N1 – and another 5,000 today in West Roxbury – as part of a community vaccination drive that targets people most at risk for getting swine flu. The H1N1 vaccine is only being offered to those at greatest risk of complications and viral illness – people age 3 to 24, and adults 25 through 64 who suffer from asthma, heart disease, diabetes, and other chronic conditions. Regular seasonal flu shots were not offered this weekend.

By 3 p.m. yesterday, 715 people in Hyde Park had gotten their shots or nasal spray.

The Drug Story (A Parallel Universe To Climategate)

My Comment:
If you look into the nuts and bolts involving today’s climategate you would be amazed how the ‘Climate Political Industry’ parallels how the Medical Pharmacological Industrial Complex was started and how it uses fudged data and ‘hit listing‘ opposition to date. I am currently writing an article addressing this parallel. Quiet frankly, if someone wants a great idea for writing a #1 best selling book, here it is. A whole book could be written on the parallel between the climate and medical industries. I only wish I had the time.
——————————————————————————————————————–

“The Drug Story” is a factalogical history of America’s $10 billion drug cartel (in 1949), its methods, operations, hidden ownership, profits and terrific impact on the health of the American people.

The following is part of the first chapter in “The Drug Story”
Chapter One
What Nujol Started

Thirty years ago the Standard Oil Company became impressed with the methods of the big packing houses which used, processed and sold every part of the hog but the squeal.

Their sales research department went way back to the 1860’s when “Old Bill” Rockefeller, the itinerant pappy of John D. (the first) and a patent medicine showman, used to palm off bottled raw petroleum on the yokels as a cure for cancer.

“Old Bil”� was an upstate New York farmer, until 1850. He moved to Cleveland then, entered the patent medicine racket and had himself listed as a “physician” in the city directory. In selling raw petroleum in a pretty bottle “Old Bill” did nothing new.

He merely took a page out of the book of other patent medicine fakers who were then hawking their wares from the backs of wagons – covered and uncovered. When oil was discovered in northwest Pennsylvania (1850) the jackals of the oil trade found there was more gold in the jeans of the gullible yokels than there was in working for it in the oil fields.

They began to bottle the raw petroleum and palm it off under various names as a cure for everything under the sun. The popular maladies of the day were liver complaint, cholera morbus, consumption and bronchitis. Among the names given this raw petroleum were “Seneca Oil”, “Rock Oil”� and “American Medicinal Oil”.

“Old Bill” opened up a new field for himself. He called his bottled petroleum “Nujo”� (meaning new oil) and sold it to those who had cancer and those whom he could make fear they would have it.

This sounded good to Standard’s researchists. It sounded even better when they found it cost but $2.00 a barrel to concoct Nujol from crude petroleum. And that from one barrel of the raw stuff they could make 1,000 six-ounce bottles of finished Nujol. Instead of calling it a cure for cancer they called it a cure for constipation.

The latest trade catalog lists Nujol as going to the druggist at 28-2/3 cents a half pint (8 fluid ounces). The druggist thus pays about 21 cents for a 6-ounce bottle of Nujol which costs Standard Oil 1/5 of a cent.

These breath-taking profits from Nujol make it inevitable that America’s largest and most ruthless industrial combine (the Rockefeller Empire) should soon add the drug traffic to its already vast production and sales domain. It wasn’t until 1939, however, that the Drug Trust was formed and the upward curve in their drug profits began to assume the present gigantic proportions which today make it a macabre $10,000,000,000 a year business. How the American Drug Trust was formed by an alliance with its opposite number in Germany is almost a story in itself.

Soon after the present-day Nujol was put on the market it was discovered by physicians to be harmful. It robbed the body of fat soluble vitamins and caused serious deficiency diseases. Standard Oil checked the loss in sales by adding carotene (one of the fat soluble vitamins) to Nujol and claiming this overcame these injuries. Physicians disagree with the sales department of Standard Oil on this point.

And what of Nujol, now being sold to the public as a laxative. For some uyears before his death Senator Royal S. Copeland of New York used to set up a radio microphone every morning in his Senate Office Building quarters in Washington, furnished by the American taxpayers, and plug this greasy concoction – at $75,000 a year.

The New York Senator was a doctor of sorts. Although he possessed a medical degree he was never able to make a living as a bedside practitioner. He went into politics and made medicine pay in a big way. First he became a health commissioner of New York City, then a Senator from the Empire State where he used the prominence thus gained to ballyhoo Nujol to unsuspecting radio listeners.

Today Nujol is made by Stanco, Incorporated, 216 West 14th Street in New York, listed in Moody’s Manual as one of the many subsidiaries of the Standard Oil Company. Stanco’s only other product is Flit, well known fly killer and insecticide, made from the same raw materials and by pretty much the same process.

When a German beer hall bum named Hitler began to plan his 1,000-year Reich, the powers-that-were in Germany didn’t actually know that American politicians were going to solve their acute employment crisis by forcing us into the Second World War to again save England’s hide and Rockefeller’s oil. But they weren’t taking any chances.

Germany’s huge dye trust (or chemical cartel) known as the I.G. Farbenindustrie Aktiengesellschaft, enjoyed a monopoly on all chemical products manufactured in Germany. German IG made an alliance with American Standard Oil in order to control important patents. The general idea was that the two were to pool their processes. This was done in a one-sided way.

With the help of Standard Oil the German behemoth prevented American chemists from learning how to make synthetic rubber until after the Japs took the Malayan Peninsula and its vast rubber plantations. This almost lost the war for the United States.

So, in 1939, when it became apparent that Germany would soon be unpopular in the United States, Standard Oil helped Hitler’s Reich cover its American holdings in the drug and chemical field. The American IG was formed, by taking over the Sterling Products Company, the Grasseli Chemical Works (alias the General Aniline Works), the Agfa-Film Company, the Winthrop Chemical and the Magnesium Development companies.

Standard Oil took 15% of the stock in the new German-American chemical trust. Efforts to hook the DuPont company into this situation partially failed. Among the directors of the “�cover up”� company were Walter Teagle (President of the Standard Oil Company), Paul Warburg (a Roosevelt-Rockefeller stooge), and Edsel Ford.

Five hundred thousand shares of stock were issued to Walter Teagle. At a later Securities & Exchange Commission investigation Mr. Teagle denied his parentage of this stock, claiming he was holding it as a dummy for someone else.

When asked by the examiner who this “someone else”� was he blandly replied he did not know, although he was under oath. Everyone else knew it was either one of the Rockefeller clan in person, or the Standard Oil Company.

The war was getting pretty close to this country. President Roosevelt was setting up the Pearl Harbor disaster, and had ordered our radar defenses let down at 7 o’clock every morning. History records that the Japaneses accepted this “opportunity” to destroy most of the American Navy, made defenseless on orders from Washington.

At this juncture American IG Farben decided to camouflage its German parentage and sympathies, with the help of Standard Oil. It changed its name to the General Aniline & Film Corporation shortly before the Pearl Harbor attack. Before doing this, American IG purchased an undisclosed number of shares in the Ozalid Corporation, Schering & Company, Mission Corporation, Monsanto Chemical, Aluminum Corporation, Drug *Incorporated), Dow Chemical, Antidolar Company, Standard Oil of New Jersey, Standard Oil of Indiana, Standard Oil of California and the DuPont Company. It took over bodily the privately-owned Hoffman-LaRoche Company.

Meanwhile, Sterling Drug gobbled up Winthrop Chemical, the Bayer Company, General Drug, Vegex (Inc.), Cook laboratories, the Centaur Company and Alba Pharmacal Company.

Drug, Inc., owned by Louis K. Liggett (a powerful Massachusetts politician during the Hoover administration), had in 1929 taken over the Bristol-Myers Company, Vick Chemical, United Drug, Life Savers (Inc.), and the Liggett chain of “RX” Retail drug stores.

With Vick Chemical, Drug, Inc, (and the Rockefeller-Standard Oil-German IG Drug Trust) got the J.T. Baker Chemical Company, the William S. Merrell Company, the Jensen-Salsberry Laboratories, Prince Matchabelli (Inc.), Alfred D. McKelvy Company, Loeser Laboratories (Inc.), Taylor Chemical and the Sofskin Company.

When the American doughboys sloughed into Germany, and reached the industrial city of Frankfort, they were amazed to find intact all of the buildings and the huge plant of the German IG Farben Chemical Trust. American aviators, pinpointing their targets, had demolished every other structure in town.

What the doughboys didn’t know was that the Secretary of War, one Robert P. Patterson, was a Rockefeller lawyer, appointed by President Roosevelt upon Rockefeller orders, fresh out of Dillon, Read and Company. The Dillon-Read concern not only is a Rockefeller subsidiary, but was the banking house that financed German IG Farben and attended to the financial details of forming the American “cover up” firm for the German chemical cartel.

Amerian aviators, who gnashed their teeth at their orders to miss the biggest target in Frankfort, have never accepted the weak alibi given them from headquarters. Which was that this juicy and IMPORTANT target should be saved because the American Expeditionary Forces would “need an office building” when they got into Germany proper.

To show how the German Chemical Cartel and the Rockefeller Drug Trust affect the lives of most American people, Sterling Drug’s 66 subsidiaries manufacture among other things Phillips’ Dentrifices and Cosmetics, Double Danderine, Ironized Yeast, Andrews’ Liver Salts, Ross’ Pills, Mejoral, Astringosol, Campho-Phenique, Molle, Energine, Diamond Dyes, and many anaesthetics, vitamins, antimalarials, sulfa drugs, analgesics, arsenicals, barbiturates, antiseptics, anti-bacterials and digenstive ferments.

The Bristol-Myers Company makes Ipana Tooth Paste, Sal Hepatica, Vitalis, Ingrams’ Shaving Cream, Mum, Minitrub, Trushay, Perman’s Insecticides, Benex and Ammer’s Powder.

Dow Chemical makes Epsom Salts, bromides and many other USP (U.S. Pharmacopoeia) products. Monsanto makes glycer-phosphate, vanillin, aspirin, saccharin, benzoic acid and many medicinals and “fine” chemicals. The Centaur Company makes Castoria.

Hoffman-LaRoche makes Allonal, Alurate, Antihistamine, Cal-C-Tose, Citro-Thiocol, Digitalis, Pantopon, Sedulon Cough Syrup, Presidon (sedative), Thephorin (a phony hay fever nostrum), ViPenta Drops and Vitaminets. Hoffman-LaRoche is privately owned, and is part of the Swiss branch of German IG, set up in 1939 to prevent confiscation as alien property.

With these Rockefeller concerns having all of these things to sell, plus thousands of the 12,000 drug items described and advocated in medical text-books, it was the most natural thing in the world – human nature and human greed being what it is for the Rockefeller Foundation to be changed into an instrument for “educating” medical students into the excessive use of drugs.

The Rockefeller Foundation was first set up in 1904, and called the General Education Fund. An organization called the Rockefeller Foundation, ostensibly to supplement the Fund, was formed in 1910 and an effort was made to get a charter from Congress.

WHERE TO BUY THE HARD COPY. (LATER REVISED ADDITIONS BEST)

“The truth about cures without drugs is suppressed, unless it suits the purpose of the censor to garble it. Whether these cures are effected by chiropractors, Naturopaths, Naprapaths, Osteopaths, Faith Healers, Spiritualists, Herbalists, Christian Scientists, or MDs who use the brains they have, you never read about it in the big newspapers.” …Morris A. Bealle

By Morris A. Bealle
Essay by Hans Ruesch
http://educate-yourself.org/fc/drugstory.shtml

In the 30’s, Morris A. Bealle, a former city editor of the old Washington Times and Herald, was running a county seat newspaper, in which the local power company bought a large advertisement every week. This account took quite a lot of worry off Bealle’ s shoulders when the bills came due. But according to Bealle’ s own story, one day the paper took up the cudgels for some of its readers that were being given poor service from the power company, and Morris Bealle received the dressing down of his life from the advertising agency which handled the power company’ s account. They told him that any more such ‘stepping out of line’ would result in the immediate cancellation not only of the advertising contract, but also of the gas company and the telephone company.

That’ s when Bealle’ s eyes were opened to the meaning of a ‘free press’, and he decided to get out of the newspaper business. He could afford to do that because he belonged to the landed gentry of Maryland, but not all newspaper editors are that lucky.

Bealle used his professional experience to do some deep digging into the freedom-of-the-press situation and came up with two shattering exposes – The Drug Story, and The House of Rockefeller. The fact that in spite of his familiarity with the editorial world and many important personal contacts he couldn’t get his revelations into print until he founded his own company, The Columbia Publishing House, Washington D.C., in 1949, was just a prime example of the silent but adamant censorship in force in ‘the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave’. Although The Drug Story is one of the most important books on health and politics ever to appear in the USA, it has never been admitted to a major bookstore nor reviewed by any establishment paper, and was sold exclusively by mail. Nevertheless, when we first got to read it, in the 1970s, it was already in its 33rd printing, under a different label – Biworld Publishers, Orem, Utah.

As Bealle pointed out, a business which makes 6% on its invested capital is considered a sound money maker. Sterling Drug, Inc., the main cog and largest holding company in the Rockefeller Drug Empire and its 68 subsidiaries, showed operating profits in 1961 of $23,463,719 after taxes, on net assets of $43,108,106 – a 54% profit. Squibb, another Rockefeller controlled company, in 1945 made not 6% but 576% on the actual value of its property.

That was during the luscious war years when the Army Surgeon General’s Office and the Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery were not only acting as promoters for the Drug Trust, but were actually forcing drug trust poisons into the blood streams of American soldiers, sailors and marines, to the tune of over 200 million ‘shots’. Is it any wonder, asked Bealle, that the Rockefellers, and their stooges in the Food and Drug Administration, the U.S. Public Health Service, the Federal Trade Commission, the Better Business Bureau, the Army Medical Corps, the Navy Bureau of Medicine, and thousands of health officers all over the country, should combine to put out of business all forms of therapy that discourage the use of drugs.

‘The last annual report of the Rockefeller Foundation’, reported Bealle, ‘itemizes the gifts [grants] it has made to colleges and public agencies in the past 44 years, and they total somewhat over half a billion dollars. These colleges, of course, teach their students all the drug lore the Rockefeller pharmaceutical houses want taught. Otherwise there would be no more gifts, just as there are no gifts to any of the 30 odd colleges in the United States that don’t use therapies based on drugs.

‘Harvard, with its well publicized medical school, has received $8,764,433 of Rockefeller’s Drug Trust money, Yale got $7 ,927,800, Johns Hopkins $10,418,531, Washington University in St. Louis $2,842,132, New York’s Columbia University $5,424,371, Cornell University $1,709,072, ete., etc.’

And while ‘giving away’ those huge sums to drug propagandizing colleges, the Rockefeller interests were growing to a world-wide web that no one could entirely explore. Already well over 30 years ago it was large enough for Bealle to demonstrate that the Rockefeller interests had created, built up and developed the most far reaching industrial empire ever conceived in the mind of man. Standard Oil was of course the foundation upon which all of the other Rockefeller industries have been built. The story of Old John D., as ruthless an industrial pirate as ever came down the pike, is well known, but is being today conveniently ignored. The keystone of this mammoth industrial empire was the Chase NationaI Bank, now renamed the Chase Manhattan Bank.

Not the least of its holdings are in the drug business. The Rockefellers own the largest drug manufacturing combine in the world, and use all of their other interests to bring pressure to increase the sale of drugs. The fact that most of the 12,000 separate drug items on the market are harmful is of no concern to the Drug Trust…

The Rockefeller Foundation was first set up in 1904 and called the General Education Fund. An organization called the Rockefeller Foundation, ostensibly to supplement the General Education Fund, was formed in 1910 and through long finagling and lots of Rockefeller money got the New York legislature to issue a charter on May 14, 1913.

It is therefore not surprising that the House of Rockefeller has had its own ‘nominees’ planted in all Federal agencies that have to do with health. So the stage was set for the ‘education’ of the American public, with a view to turning it into a population of drug and medico dependents, with the early help of the parents and the schools, then with direct advertising and, last but not least, the influence the advertising revenues had on the media makers.

A compilation of the magazine Advertising Age showed that as far back as 1948 the larger companies in America spent for advertising the sum total of $1,104,224,374, when the dollar was still worth a dollar and not half a zloty. Of this staggering sum the interlocking Rockefeller-Morgan interests (gone over entirely to Rockefeller after Morgan’ s death) controlled about 80 percent, and utilized it to manipulate public information on health and drug matters – then and even more recklessly now.

‘Even the most independent newspapers are dependent on their press associations for their national news,’ Bealle pointed out, ‘and there is no reason for a news editor to suspect that a story coming over the wires of the Associated Press, the United Press or the International News Service is censored when it concerns health matters. Yet this is what happens constantly.’

In fact in the ’50s the Drug Trust had one of its directors on the directorate of the Associated Press. He was no less than Arthur Hays Sulzberger, publisher of the New York Times and as such one of the most powerful Associated Press directors.

It was thus easy for the Rockefeller Trust to persuade the Associated Press Science Editor to adopt a policy which would not permit any medical news to clear that is not approved by the Drug Trust ‘expert’, and this censor is not going to approve any item that can in any way hurt the sale of drugs.

This accounts to this day for the many fake stories of serums and medical cures and just-around-the-corner breakthrough victories over cancer, AIDS, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, which go out brazenly over the wires to all daily newspapers in America and abroad.

Emanuel M. Josephson, M.D., whom the Drug Trust has been unable to intimidate despite many attempts, pointed out that the National Association of Science Writers was ‘persuaded’ to adopt as part of its code of ethics the following chestnut: ‘Science editors are incapable of judging the facts of phenomena involved in medical and scientific discovery. Therefore, they only report ‘discoveries’ approved by medical authorities, or those presented before a body of scientific peers.’

This explains why Bantam Books, America’s biggest publisher, made a colossal mistake in its initial enthusiasm and optimism sending review copies of SLAUGHTER OF THE INNOCENT to the 3,500 ‘science writers’ on its list, instead of addressing them to the literary book reviewers who are not subject to medical censorship. One single censor decreed NO and SLAUGHTER OF THE INNOCENT sank in silence.

Thus newspapers continue to be fed with propaganda about drugs and their alleged value, although according to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 1.5 million people landed in hospitals in 1978 because of medication side effects in the U.S. alone, and despite recurrent statements by intelligent and courageous medical men that most pharmaceutical items on sale are useless at best, but more often harmful or deadly in the long run.

The truth about cures without drugs is suppressed, unless it suits the purpose of the censor to garble it. Whether these cures are effected by Chiropractors, Naturopaths, Naprapaths, Osteopaths, Faith Healers, Spiritualists, Herbalists, Christian Scientists, or MDs who use the brains they have, you never read about it in the big newspapers.

To teach the Rockefeller drug ideology, it is necessary to teach that Nature didn’t know what she was doing when she made the human body. But statistics issued by the Children’s Bureau of the Federal Security Agency show that since the all-out drive of the Drug Trust for drugging, vaccinating and serumizing the human system, the health of the American nation has sharply declined, especially among children. Children are now given ‘shots’ for this and ‘shots’ for that, when the only safeguard known to science is a pure bloodstream, which can be obtained only with clean air and wholesome food. Meaning by natural and inexpensive means. Just what the Drug Trust most objects to.

When the FDA, whose officials have to be acceptable to Rockefeller Center before they are appointed, has to put an independent operator out of business, it goes all out to execute those orders. But the orders do not come directly from Standard Oil or a drug house director. As Morris Bealle pointed out, the American Medical Association (AMA) is the front for the Drug Trust, and furnishes the quack doctors to testify that even when they know nothing of the product involved, it is their considered opinion that it has no therapeutic value.

Wrote Bealle:
‘Financed by the taxpayers, these Drug Trust persecutions leave no stone unturned to destroy the victim. If he is a small operator, the resulting attorney’s fees and court costs put him out of business. In one case, a Dr. Adolphus Hohensee of Scranton, Pa., who had stated that vitamins (he used natural ones) were vital to good health, was taken to court for ‘misbranding’ his product. The American Medical Association furnished ten medicos who reversed all known medical theories by testifying that ‘vitamins are not necessary to the human body’. Confronted with government bulletins to the contrary, the medicos wiggled out of that one by declaring that these standard publications were outdated!’

In addition to the FDA, Bealle listed the following agencies having to do with ‘health’ – i.e., with the health of the Drug Trust to the detriment of the citizens – as being dependent on Rockefeller: U.S. Public Health Service, U.S. Veterans Administration, Federal Trade Commission, Surgeon General of the Air Force, Army Surgeon General’ s Office, Navy Bureau of Medicine & Surgery, National Health Research Institute, National Research Council, National Academy of Sciences.

The National Academy of Sciences in Washington is considered the all wise body which investigates everything under the sun, especially in the field of health, and gives to a palpitating public the last word in that science. To the important post at the head of this agency, the Drug Trust had one of their own appointed. He was none other than Alfred N. Richards, one of the directors and largest stockholders of Merck & Company, which was making huge profits from its drug traffic.

When Bealle revealed this fact, Richards resigned forthwith, and the Rockefellers appointed in his place the President of their own Rockefeller Institution, Detlev W. Bronk.

The medico drug cartel was summed up by J.W Hodge, M.D., of Niagara Falls, N.Y., in these words: ‘The medical monopoly or medical trust, euphemistically called the American Medical Association, is not merely the meanest monopoly ever organized, but the most arrogant, dangerous and despotic organization which ever managed a free people in this or any other age. Any and all methods of healing the sick by means of safe, simple and natural remedies are sure to be assailed and denounced by the arrogant leaders of the AMA doctors’ trust as fakes, frauds and humbugs Every practitioner of the healing art who does not ally himself with the medical trust is denounced as a ‘dangerous quack’ and impostor by the predatory trust doctors. Every sanitarium who attempts to restore the sick to a state of health by natural means without resort to the knife or poisonous drugs, disease imparting serums, deadly toxins or vaccines, is at once pounced upon by these medical tyrants and fanatics, bitterly denounced, vilified and persecuted to the fullest extent.’

The Lincoln Chiropractic College in Indianapolis requires 4,496 hours, the Palmer Institute Chiropractic in Davenport a minimum of 4,000 60 minute classroom hours, the University of Natural Healing Arts in Denver five years of 1,000 hours each to qualify for a degree. The National College of Naprapathy in Chicago requires 4,326 classroom hours for graduation. Yet the medico drug cartel spreads the propaganda that the practitioners of these three ‘heretic’ sciences are poorly trained or not trained at all – the real reason being that they cure their patients without the use of drugs. In 1958, one of those ‘ill trained’ doctors, Nicholas P. Grimaldi, who had just graduated from the Lincoln Chiropractic College, took the basic science examination of the Connecticut State Board along with 63 medics and osteopaths. He made the highest mark (91.6) ever made by a doctor taking the Connecticut State Board examination.

Rockefeller’ s various ‘educational’ activities had proved so profitable in the U S. that in 1927 the International Educational Board was launched, as Junior’ s own, personal charity, and endowed with $21,000,000 for a starter, to be lavished on foreign universities and politicos, with all the usual strings attached. This Board undertook to export the ‘new’ Rockefeller image as a benefactor of mankind, as well as his business practices. Nobody informed the beneficiaries that every penny the Rockefellers seemed to be throwing out the window would come back, bearing substantial interest,
through the front door.

Rockefeller had always had a particular interest in China, where Standard Oil was almost the sole supplier of kerosene and oil ‘for the lamps of China’. So he put up money to establish the China Medical Board and to build the Peking Union Medical College, playing the role of the Great White Father who has come to dispense knowledge on his lowly children. The Rockefeller Foundation invested up to $45,000,000 into ‘westernizing’ (read corrupting) Chinese medicine.

Medical colleges were instructed that if they wished to benefit from the Rockefeller largesse they had better convince 500 million Chinese to throw into the ashcan the safe and useful but inexpensive herbal remedies of their barefoot doctors, which had withstood the test of centuries, in favor of the expensive carcinogenic and teratogenic ‘miracle’ drugs Made in USA, which had to be replaced constantly with new ones, when the fatal side effects could no longer be concealed; and if they couldn’t ‘demonstrate’ through large-scale animal experiments the effectiveness of their ancient acupuncture, this could not be recognized as having any ‘scientific value’. Its millenarian effectiveness proven on human beings was of no concern to the Western wizards.

But when the Communists came to power in China and it was no longer possible to trade, the Rockefellers suddenly lost interest in the health of the Chinese people and shifted their attention increasingly to Japan, India and Latin America.

‘No candid study of his career can lead to other conclusion than that he is victim of perhaps the ugliest of all passions, that for money, money as an end. It is not a pleasant picture…. this money maniac secretly, patiently, eternally plotting how he may add to his wealth…. He has turned commerce to war, and honey-combed it with cruel and corrupt practices…. And he calls his great organization a benefaction, and points to his church-going and charities as proof of his righteousness. This is supreme wrong-doing cloaked by religion. There is but one name for it – hypocrisy. ‘

This was the description Ida Tarbell made of John D. Rockefeller in her ‘History of the Standard Oil Company’, serialized in 1905 in the widely circulated McClure’s Magazine. And that was several years before the ‘Ludlow Massacre’, so JDR was as yet far from having reached the apex of his disrepute. But after World War II it would have been hard to read, in America or abroad, a single criticism of JDR, nor of Junior, who had followed in his father’ s footsteps, nor of Junior’ s four sons who all endeavored to emulate their illustrious forbears. Today’s various encyclopedias extant in public libraries of the Western world have nothing but praise for the Family. How was this achieved?

Ironically, the two apparently most NEGATIVE events in the career of JDR brought about a huge POSITIVE change in his favor, to a degree that he himself could not foresee. To wit:

In the year when according to the current Encyclopedia Britanica (long become a Rockefeller property and transferred from Oxford to Chicago), Rockefeller had ‘retired from active business’, namely in 1911, he had been convicted by a U.S. court of illegal practices and ordered to dissolve the Standard Oil Trust, which comprised 40 corporations. This imposed dissolution was to provide his Empire with added might, to a degree that was unprecedented in the history of modem business. Until then, the Trust had existed for all to see – an exposed target. After that, it went underground,
and thereby its power was cloaked in security, and could keep expanding unseen and therefore unopposed.

The Ludlow Massacre

The second apparently negative experience was a certain 1914 event that persuaded JDR, until then utterly contemptuous of public opinion, to gloss over his own image.

The United Mine Workers had asked for higher wages and better living conditions for the miners of the Colorado Fuel and Iron Company, one of the many Rockefeller owned companies.

The miners – mostly immigrants from Europe’ s poorest countries – lived in shacks provided by the company at exorbitant rent. Their low wages ($1.68 a day) were paid in script redeemable only at company stores charging high prices. The churches they attended were the pastorates of company-hired ministers; their children were taught in company-controlled schools; the company libraries excluded books that the Bible-thumping Rockefellers deemed ‘subversive’, such as ‘Darwin’s Origin of the Species.’ The company maintained a force of detectives, mine guards, and spies whose job it was to keep the camp quarantined from the danger of unionization.

When the miners struck, JDR, Jr., then officially in command of the company, and his father’ s hatchet man, the Baptist Reverend Frederick T. Gates, who was a director of the Rockefeller Foundation, refused even to negotiate. They evicted the strikers from the company-owned shacks, hired a thousand strike-breakers from the Baldwin-Felts detective agency, and persuaded Governor Ammons to call out the National Guard to help break the strike.

Open warfare resulted. Guardsmen, miners, their women and children, who since their eviction were camping in tents, were ruthlessly killed, until the frightened Governor wired President Wilson for Federal Troops, who eventually crushed the strike, The New York Times, which then already could never be accused of being unfriendly to the Rockefeller interests, reported on April 21, 1914.

‘A 14 hour battle between striking coal miners and members of the Colorado National Guard in the Ludlow district today culminated in the killing of Louis Tikas, leader of the Greek strikers, and the destruction of the Ludlow tent colony by fire.’

And the following day.

‘Forty five dead (32 of them women and children), a score missing and more than a score wounded is the known result of the 14 hour battle which raged between state troops and coal miners in the Ludlow district, on the property of the Colorado Fuel and Iron Company, the Rockefeller holding. The Ludlow is a mass of charred debris, and buried beneath it is a story of horror unparalleled in the history of industrial warfare. In the holes that had been dug for their protection against rifle fire, the women and children died like trapped rats as the flames swept over them. One pit uncovered this afternoon disclosed the bodies of ten children and two women.’

The worldwide revulsion that followed was such that JDR decided to hire the most talented press agent in the country, Ivy Lee, who got the tough assignment of whitewashing the tycoon’ s bloodied image.

When Lee learned that the newly organized Rockefeller Foundation had $100 million lying around for promotional purposes without knowing what to do with it, he came with a plan to donate large sums – none less than a million- to well known colleges, hospitals, churches and benevolent organizations. The plan was accepted. So were the millions. And they made headlines all over the world, for in the days of the gold standard and the five cent cigar there was a maxim in every newspaper office that a million dollars was always news.

That was the beginning of the cleverly worded medical reports on new ‘miracle’ drugs and ‘just-around-the-corner breakthroughs’ planted in the leading news offices and press associations that continue to this day, and the flighty public soon forgot, or forgave, the massacre of foreign immigrants for the dazzling display of generosity and philanthropy financed by the ballooning Rockefeller fortune and going out, with thunderous press fanfare, to various ‘worthy’ institutions.

In the following years, not only newsmen, but whole newspapers were bought, financed or founded with Rockefeller money. So Time Magazine, which Henry Luce started in 1923, had been taken over by J.P. Morgan when the magazine got into fInancial difficulties. When Morgan died and his financial empire crumbled, the House of Rockefeller wasted no time in taking over this lush editorial plum also, together with its sisters Fortune and Life, and built for them an expensive 14 story home of their own in Rockefeller Center – the Time & Life Building.

Rockefeller was also co-owner of Time’s ‘rival’ magazine, Newsweek, which had been established in the early days of the New Deal with money put up by Rockefeller, Vincent Astor, the Harrimann family and other members and allies of the House.

For all his innate cynicism, JDR must have been himself surprised to discover how easily the so-called intellectuals could be bought. Indeed, they turned out to be among his best investments.

By founding and lavishly endowing his Education Boards at home and abroad, Rockefeller won control not only of the governments and politicos but also of the intellectual and scientific community, starting with the Medical Power – the organization that forms those priests of the New Religion that
are the modern medicine men. No Pulitzer or Nobel or any similar prize endowed with money and prestige has ever been awarded to a declared foe of the Rockefeller system.

Henry Luce, officially founder and editor of Time Magazine, but constantly dependent on House advertising, also distinguished himself in his adulation of his sponsors. JDR’s son had been responsible for the Ludlow massacre, and an obedient partner in his father’ s most unsavory actions. Nonetheless, in 1956 Henry Luce put Junior on the cover of Time, and the feature story, soberly titled ‘The Good Man’, included hyperbole like this:

‘It is because John D. Rockefeller Junior’s is a life of constructive social giving that he ranks as an authentic American hero, just as certainly as any general who ever won a victory for an American army or any statesman who triumphed in behalf of U.S. diplomacy.’

Clearly, Time’s editorial board wasn’t given the choice to change its tune even after the passing of Junior and Henry Luce, since it remained just as dependent on House of Rockefeller advertising. Thus, when in 1979 one of Junior’s sons, Nelson A. Rockefeller died – who had been one of the loudest hawks in the Vietnam and other American wars, and was personally responsible for the massacre of prisoners and hostages at Attica prison – Time said of him in it obituary, without laughing:

‘He was driven by a mission to serve, improve and uplift his country.’

Perhaps it was all this that Prof. Peter Singer had in mind when telling the judges in Italy that the Rockefeller Foundation was a humanitarian enterprise bent on doing good works. One of their best works seems to be sponsoring Prof. Peter Singer, the world’s greatest animal friend and protector who claims that vivisection is indispensable for medical progress and for more than 20 years refuses to mention that legions of medical doctors are of the opposite view.

Another interesting revelation in the article of Time was that many years ago already Singer ‘was pleasantly surprised when Britanica approached him to distill in about 30,000 words the discipline that is, at its heart, the systematic study of what we ought to do.’ So now we touch the subject of sponsorship and patronage. They don’ t always mean immediate cash but, more important, long-term profits.

Many decades ago the Encyclopedia Britannica moved from Oxford to Chicago because Rockefeller had bought it to add much needed luster to the University of Chicago and its medical school, the first one he had founded. Peter Singer, ‘the world’s greatest animal defender’ who keeps a door permanently open to vivisection and the lucrative medical swindle, gets millions of dollars free publicity thanks to the worldwide engagement of the Rockefeller Foundation and the media makers who are in no position to oppose it.

From the article in Time we also learned that Singer’ s mother had been a medical doctor in the old country, which could mean that little Peter started assimilating all the Rockefeller superstition on vivisection with his mother’s milk.
