House Betrayal: FDA tyranny to become law: HR.2900 analysis by Mike Adams

On July 11, 2007, the U.S. House of Representatives passed HR 2900, blocking debate on the law and preventing the introduction of any amendments that might have provided meaningful drug safety protections for consumers. This action demonstrates that the House of Representatives, much like the Senate, is utterly controlled by Big Pharma and has abandoned any responsibility to defend the interests of the voters. Drug companies now have complete control over the U.S. Congress, and through a campaign of intense lobbying and financial influence, they have managed to easily water down a law that once proposed to end the American monopoly on pharmaceuticals and ban advertising on new drugs.

Instead of placing new restrictions on Big Pharma and the increasingly dangerous power of the FDA, this new law (a combination of HR.2900 and S.1082, when it is hammered out in conference) grants more power to the FDA while deepening the financial ties between the agency and drug companies. The law effectively surrenders America to a system of medical tyranny under which a criminally-operated FDA will continue to promote pharmaceuticals, censor nutritional education and discredit alternatives that threaten drug company profits. Nothing in the new law protects consumers' access to dietary supplements or natural medicine.

Congress had the potential to pass a really good law here -- one that would have ended direct-to-consumer advertising, banned conflicts of interest at the FDA, required the open source publication of drug trials and ended the U.S. monopoly on pharmaceuticals. Instead, Congress chose to do none of these things. It staged a song and dance about "FDA reform" while selling out the future of America's health to a tiny but powerful group of ultra-wealthy corporations that now virtually rule this country. There is nothing in the new law worth celebrating unless, of course, you are the CEO or major shareholder of a Big Pharma corporation, in which case you will like be stunned at just how cheaply and easily U.S. lawmakers can be bought.

Senate Betrayal: Senate Voted to Give FDA Control of Health - Call House Now

EMERGENCY ALERT! House Set to Vote to Allow FDA to Eliminate Vitamin Companies!
[Printable PDF Flyer]

As we reported earlier, the federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is boldly working to regulate your health care choices down to the level of third world countries; in effect, health-care rationing, as envisioned for you by your government and Codex. The Senate has passed (S. 1082, by a vote of 93-1) legislation which grants the FDA authority to regulate "food and food ingredients." Today, July 10th, the House is poised to take testimony on the companion bill, H.R.2900 (presented unanimously out of committee) followed by a forced vote! You Must Take Immediate Action to STOP THIS, or You Will Lose Your HEALTH FREEDOM!

Call Congressional switchboard at (202) 224-3121. Ask for Jerry Moran (KS-1st), Nancy Boyda (KS-2nd), Dennis Moore (KS-3rd), or Todd Tiahrt (KS-4).

Topeka Ron Paul Meetup 7/08/2007 Meeting

Four of us met in Topeka, KS, on Sunday, 7/08/2007.

How do we add to the number that are involved in the effort to spread the word about Ron Paul? By talking to as many people as we can about Ron Paul. Some of these people will recognize the chance for political reform along Constitutional and moral principles that is Ron Paul's presidential campaign.

1. Reach people via door-to-door, with walking lists, to leave door-hangers, and to offer other info, like push-cards and DVDs.

2. Bring material to gatherings of people, including farmers' markets, with general material and any more specific material (like issues related to farming and ranching).

3. Look at local printing of color flyers in bulk. Look at possibility of getting a color laser-printer.

Senate Amnesty Betrayal: Last chance to convince Senate!

[Printable PDF]

The Senate is making their move on the Illegal Immigration Amnesty/Pardon Bill today (6/28/2007). They already got cloture with 66 votes! Two-thirds of the Senate are open traitors to the American people, and Sen. Brownback, Presidential Doubtful, was one of them.

* It gives illegal aliens fast track citizenship.
* It gives social security benefits on the first visit.
* Illegal aliens can stay here and get these perks.
* Each illegal alien can bring in 11 other family members.
* Aggravated Felons and Gang Members can become legalized by signing a piece of paper (they already routinely falsify documents; what is one more fraud?).
* In-state tuition rates at colleges are given to them.
* Back taxes not paid (for work done illegally) are forgiven for the aliens (not for Americans, not even Mexican Americans).
* It requires US Citizens to have a National ID Card to work!

The word is that George Bush wants to sign this Death to America on July 4th. They plan to push it through the House over the weekend. As a side note, if you haven't heard: George Bush has made himself dictator in any emergency he that he might declare.

Ron Paul - Ron Paul in Kansas City

June 22, 2007

Kansas City enthusiastically welcomed Congressman Ron Paul last Friday, June 15th. [VK Notice]

Dr. Paul started the day with an interview by the editorial board of the Kansas City Star. Afterwards, he spoke to the National Right to Life Convention where he received a standing ovation. A reporter for the Los Angeles Times then interviewed Dr. Paul for over an hour for a major article to be published in a few weeks. After the interview, Missouri State Representative Jim Guest hosted a luncheon for Dr. Paul. They were joined by Missouri State Representative Brian Yates.

Throughout the day, a two-man camera crew from the New York Times photographed Dr. Paul for an upcoming article in the New York Times Sunday magazine. The crew traveled with Dr. Paul to Phoenix the next day.

Photographs of the Kansas City event are posted at http://flickr.com/photos/92572752@N00/sets/ 72157600421461719

Thank you Kansas City!

GrassFire.org Alliance - Bush-Kennedy Amnesty Bill Update

Is "the fix" in on new Senate amnesty bill?

Our contacts on the Hill are giving us an insider's look at how the Bush-Kennedy amnesty bill is likely to proceed this week.

We expect the Amnesty Gang to introduce a new bill as a "substitute" of the last failed bill. This allows them to bring the bill to the Senate floor without going through committee -- just like the first Bush-Kennedy amnesty bill. Then they will use Senate procedures -- including one which we are being told has never been used before -- to restrict the number of amendments that can be considered and limit debate.

What does all this mean?

At the end of the day, the Amnesty Gang is doing everything in their power to ensure that "the fix" is in on amnesty. They are going to manipulate Senate rules and make it nearly impossible for those opposing amnesty to block the bill on the Senate floor.

So the bottom line is, the ONLY barrier left to the Senate passing this bill is an even greater grassroots uprising.
