Duty to Warn

 By Gary G. Kohls, MD – January 26, 2019

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A solemn message to the residents of Hoyt Lakes, Aurora, Meadowlands, Floodwood, Brookston, Cloquet, Scanlon, Carlton, Thomson, Wrenshall, Duluth, Superior WI, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Canada and most of all, Lake Superior, please seriously heed the warnings in the message below. 

Even state-of-the-art mine tailings ponds that use earthen dam walls (especially if they are intended to grow to become 250 feet tall like PolyMet’s!!) are subject to sudden, unexpected – and very catastrophic – breaches that could easily destroy for a generation every living thing in the watershed downstream. Even tributaries can be contaminated and even destroyed in the sudden deluge that can reverse the flow of the creeks temporarily. 

And be warned that foreign multinational mining corporations – just like every other profit-minded, multinational corporation that anybody can think of – has their profits as their number one goal; the long-term adverse environmental effects from their mining operations be damned!

Foreign multinational mining corporations have poisoned the environment – sometimes gradually, sometimes catastrophically – wherever on the planet they have extracted their minerals – NO EXCEPTIONS.

The giant multinational mining corporations Vale, BHP Billiton and Samarco (that have extensive operations in Brazil) have again demonstrated to the world why they can’t be trusted, for just yesterday (January 25, 2019) they have perpetrated another environmental catastrophe.

Read on and understand that similar disasters could (and probably will) happen downstream from the PolyMet/NorthMet/Glencore sulfuric acid-producing copper mine whose tailings pond dam is scheduled to rise to an eventually unstable height of 250 feet !!

Far more communities than the dozen towns named above could be devastated irreparably, despite what the starry-eyed and bamboozled (and/or paid off by political contributions) politicians like Senator Klobuchar, Senator Smith, US House member Stauber, ex-US House member Nolan, and practically every politician from either major political party that one can think of. The high potential for sudden environmental disasters similar to Samarco, Mount Polley (British Columbia) and now Brumadinho, Brazil (plus a hundred others since global mineral extractions by huge corporations began). 

“ALL tailings “ponds” are a problem. If they don’t breach and spill massive amounts of toxic sludge into the environment like at Mount Polley, they leach that contamination slowly, poisoning the waters and lands (and aquifers) around them for centuries.” — From: http://canadians.org/blog/update-mount-polley-mine-disaster-imperial-metals-and-government-focus-covering-instead.

Vaccine Realities that Big Pharma Doesn’t Teach Us Doctors (or our Patients)

 Duty to Warn

By Gary G. Kohls, MD

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And Why America’s Mandated Over-vaccination Schedules are Unsafe and of Questionable Usefulness

“In 1986 a US law was passed that protected vaccine maker’s from ever being sued in a regular court regardless of how many babies or children were injured or killed from the aluminum, mercury (aka Thimerosal), formaldehyde, aborted fetal cells, deadly peanut byproducts, cells of pigs, cows, monkeys, dogs, insects, MSG (monosodium glutamate), ether and other toxins that make up normal vaccines. At that time 1 in 10,000 children had Autism. Children went from 7 vaccines to more than 70. Today as many as 1 in 25 boys over age 12 has autism-which is really a term to hide the real condition: vaccine-induced encephalitis (inflammation of the brain) and 1 in 5 high school kids have ADHD, Tourette’s syndrome, epilepsy, asthma, diabetes and cancer has gone sky high. No vaccine is ever looked at for its ability to cause cancer-surely not the combination of vaccines and cancer is now the leading cause of death ion little children. There is a federal Vaccine court that has paid 3.3 BILLION dollars to families bright enough to learn the system and were able to prove that the autism was from the vaccines.” — Shelley Tzorfas, author of Recovering Autism, ADHD, & Special Needs

___________________________________________________________________

Over the several decades since I really started studying vaccine issues in some depth – much too late for many of my vulnerable patients – I have come to see through the pervasive Big Pharma/Big Vaccine/Big Medicine propaganda that falsely and repeatedly asserted that all vaccines are safe, effective and necessary for the public health.

VIP Info!! (ME/SUB, ME) Vaccine-induced Acute Flaccid Myelitis (AFM): The best and most logical explanation for the outbreaks – which means that AFM is an iatrogenic illness (a taboo subject that must be suppressed at all costs)

The letter below is about what the CDC and many state Departments of Health (plus mainstream media outlets that take advertising [hush”] money from Big Pharma/Big Vaccine [plus every medical trade group such as the AAP and AMA]) has been calling “mysterious” outbreaks (ie, of unknown cause) of acute flaccid myelitis (AFM) among highly vaccinated-age-age pediatric patients. The letter was published in a recent issue of the British Medical Journal (in the “Rapid Response” section).

The author of the letter receives my periodic Duty to Warn columns, and he was kind enough to forward me the BMJ-published letter. We should be proud of him for writing it and also happy that the BMJ actually printed it. I suspect that most major US medical journals would refuse to publish such important information.

Perhaps some of the vaccine/Big Pharma-skeptic group receiving this forward could consider raising this important issue in the mainstream media and also challenge mainstream medical journals before the flood of misinformation about AFM falsely establishes in physician’s and people’s minds that intramuscular injections of neurotoxic ingredients in vaccines has nothing to do with the outbreaks. It should be mandatory for every physician or nurse even peripherally involved in AFM cases to document vaccination history, especially the history of pre-school vaccinations and fall influenza vaccinations.

INJECTIONS AND ACUTE FLACCID MYELITIS: THE DOG THAT HASN’T BARKED

 

The editorial and review of the US outbreaks of acute flaccid myelitis/AFM is timely, but it fails to mention a potentially important co-factor in the cause of this “mystery illness”—intramuscular injections and provocation paralysis. (Stelzer-Braid, BMJ, 19 Dec 2018) More

A Letter to a Young Health Journalist (in Response to her Recent Article about the Possibility of Big Pharma Developing a Universal Influenza Vaccine )

Duty to Warn 

By Gary G. Kohls, MD – 1-15-2019

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear Ms —-: I read your recent online article concerning the CDC/Big Pharma/Big Vaccine/Big Medicine claims – still totally theoretical – that unspecified corporations are hoping to develop a so-called “universal influenza vaccine”.

Your article happens to be just one of many similarly-sourced articles authored by other health journalists around the nation concerning the same topic. Those journalists have probably also been informed (mis-informed?) by similar press releases and pro-industry “scientific” information that has been made available to journalists by profit-motivated multinational corporations that hope that to generate interest in the “next new thing”. Often false hope gets generated. Money can still be made selling snake oil if there is enough slick marketing and the salesperson has a silver tongue.

Big Pharma’s busy propaganda departments may be trying to generate interest in universal influenza vaccines because recent flu shot programs have been worse than useless, and something needs to be done to distract the public from that reality. As your article said, officials acknowledge that this year’s flu shots are another in a string of huge mismatches, but they are still urging that all patients get their useless and potentially toxic flu shots anyway.

Profits Before People

The “hopeful pie-in-the-sky” information in your article (through no fault of your own, of course) has been fed to you More

“9/11 Conspiracy Theorists” Are Finally a Majority Most Americans Do Not Believe the Official Government/Media/Pentagon’s Story About 9/11

Duty to Warn

(Why? Because they have 1) actually looked at the overwhelming evidence disproving the official story and 2) they automatically distrust the US Government (and Big Business’s war-related industries) when they try to create fear and war hysteria)

By Paul Craig Roberts – 1-8-2018

http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/50902.htm

January 08, 2019 “Information Clearing House” –     TruePublica, a British website that has avoided the 9/11 issue, has had its fill of ignorant journalists at the BBC, Huffington Post and other propagandists for the military/security complex. The constant, shrill demeaning of experts and distinguished people who have raised questions about the official story has convinced TruePublica that skeptics who need so much shouting down must have a point.

The media has NEVER EXAMINED the evidence or explained the analysis provided by scientists, architects, engineers, pilots, and the first responders who experienced the explosions of the World Trade Center twin towers. The media has never asked for the release of the multiple videos that recorded whatever struck the Pentagon. The media has never investigated whether cell phones worked in 2001 from the altitudes at which the official story claims calls were made.

Instead two-bit punk presstitutes, such as the BBC’s Chris Bell and the Huffington Post’s Jess Brammer and Chris York, label experts with knowledge and integrity “conspiracy theorists.” These presstitutes knowingly use a cover-up term that the CIA put into use via its media assets to discredit the expert skeptics of the Warren Commission Report on the assassination of President Kennedy.

The fact that the carefully presented evidence is NEVER ENGAGED EXCEPT WITH NAME-CALLING is a strong indication that the evidence is true and cannot be refuted. More

One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It is simply too painful to acknowledge — even to ourselves — that we’ve been fooled.” — Carl Sagan, “The Fine Art of Baloney Detection” (February 1, 1987)

Drug Czar Jim McClelland launching the RxADI Indiana initiative in Indianapolis – July 2018

This morning, just as I was about to start writing my weekly Duty to Warn column, I glanced through my local paper, the Duluth News-Tribune, and was confronted by a full-page ad on page A3, essentially identical to the one pictured above, except that the News-Tribune version didn’t have any Indiana groups on the poster.

The ad was titled “Rallying to Address Opioid Addiction”. The ad likely cost well over a thousand dollars and was paid for by an entity that I had never heard of before called “Rx ALI Minnesota”. Rx ALI is the abbreviation for Rx [ie, prescription drug] Abuse Leadership Initiative). The group is apparently a fresh new “alliance” of “concerned” corporate entities that were suddenly interested in the opioid crisis that has been affecting all portions of America for decades.

Or maybe the interest of some of this now-seemingly ubiquitous major alliance that is sponsoring the ad all over America has some ulterior motives, such as trying to obscure the guilt that those behind the initiative should be acknowledging. Perhaps there are hidden entities that have been guilty of actually causing the addiction and suicidality crises in the first place are they are now trying to unjustly be a part of the many altruistic efforts that are going on already.

Pretending to be a part of the solution is easier than admitting that they were a major cause for the crisis in the first place. Big Businesses are notorious for trying to finagle their way into positions of “leadership” when decisions might be made that could affect their share price, shareholder confidence, prestige or corporate survival.

Five days before the full-page RxADI ad appeared in the News-Tribune, there was an opinion piece published that was written by the CEO of CADCA (Community Anti-Drug Coalition of America), one of the ad sponsors seen at the top of the photo image above. The editorial was about dealing with the national opioid crisis. CADCA’s HQ is located in the Washington, DC area, so it was fair to ask what motivated the CEO to specifically write an opinion piece for Duluth readers? In that piece, which was supposedly written specifically for the News=Tribune, CADCA’s CEO named many of the co-sponsors of the ad that was published 5 days later. I knew right away that the proximity of the two items was no coincidence.

So I had to dig further.

Merck & Company and Big Pharma’s Nefarious Search for Profits An Example of how a Small-Town German Apothecary Shop Morphed into a Greedy Multinational Corporation that Disregards Ethical Principles

Duty to Warn

“A number of other drug companies paid over a billion dollars in punitive settlements over that same span. Below is a list of seven of the most expensive ones. That list doesn’t include the dozens of other Big Pharma corporations that paid out lesser, “just-the-cost-of-doing-business” payments that were only in the hundreds of millions of dollars.

  • GlaxoSmithKline: $7.63 billion
  • Pfizer: $3.46 billion
  • Johnson & Johnson: $2.82 billion
  • Abbott: $1.82 billion
  • Eli Lilly: $1.71 billion
  • Teva: $1.47 billion
  • Novartis: $1.23 billion”

One of the oldest and biggest pharmaceutical companies on the planet is New Jersey-based Merck & Company (known outside the US as MSD – short for Merck, Sharp & Dohme). Merck was once a German company (now international, with its head offices in the US) that is, technically speaking, 350 years old this year. Given its recent stock prices, it is having a happy birthday year ($55 per share last spring and $80 per share a few days ago).

Merck & Co was born when Friedrich Jacob Merck bought a small apothecary shop in Darmstadt, Germany in 1668. Friedrich’s shop sold the usual items of his era, including tobacco, wine, spices, herbal “remedies” and any other products that his customers regarded as potentially healing agents. Apothecaries were the precursors of modern-day pharmacies. The owners frequently dispensed medical advice, although they were not licensed physicians.

In 1827 – a century and a half later – one of Friedrich’s heirs, Heinrich Emmanuel Merck, converted the pharmacy into a drug manufacturing facility – and the rest, as they say, is history. Among the first products that Merck manufactured and marketed were the highly-addictive substances cocaine and the two early natural opioids, morphine and codeine. They were all over-the-counter drugs at the time.

Interestingly, Viennese psychiatrist Sigmoid Freud had a Merck connection in that he helped promote their cocaine drug when Sigmund discovered that the drug was a powerful “anti-depressant” (or at least it made him “euphoric” or capable of causing a predictable drug-induced mania). Freud’s support lasted only until the day he realized how addictive Merck’s cocaine turned out to be. More
