Rock stars Tom Petty and Prince both died after overdosing on opioid drugs. The Sackler family reaped $14 billion in ill-gotten gains after manipulating the medical industry into prescribing their dangerous drugs. The Sacklers are now selling their fatal drugs on the international market after facing lawsuits, bad press and new regulations in America.
Tom Petty’s family says the coroner found that the musician died in October 2017 from an accidental overdose of opioid painkillers, including fentanyl patches. They wrote on his website that he “suffered from many serious ailments including emphysema, knee problems, and most significantly a fractured hip.” Despite his injury, he kept his commitment to his fans and performed 53 scheduled concert dates, which, they say, worsened his condition.
In a similar event in April 2016, pop star, Prince, who was a known teetotaler, died of an accidental overdose of the opioid fentanyl, which is highly addictive, and can be 25 to 50 times more potent than heroin.
In 2016, there were 42,249 drug fatalities caused by opioids, a 28% increase over the previous year. Nationally, drug overdoses are now the leading cause of accidental death for Americans under age 50,
The opioid crisis can be traced back to the dramatic overprescription of the drugs in the 1990s when doctors were persuaded to treat pain as a serious medical issue demanding drugs as the treatment of choice. Investigative reporter Christopher Glazek says the Sackler family that owns Purdue Pharmaceutical company is behind the explosion of opioid abuse in America. Purdue produced a powerful time-release morphine pill, MS-Contin, that was effective for cancer patients, typically used for pain control at the end of their lives. The patent was due to expire in the 1990s and, as Purdue was on the brink of losing its golden goose, they sought to replace it.
They created a new drug that uses another derivative of the poppy plant, oxycodone, which is similar to morphine, and also very powerful, and made it into a time-release pain-killer, OxyContin. Their new drug was targeted at 30-million people who suffer from back pain and millions of other people who suffer from chronic pain.
The Sacklers’ Purdue Pharma created a new market for their very powerful drug by deceiving doctors and the public by claiming, “There is no evidence that addiction is a significant issue when persons are given opioids for pain control,” per a video the company released in 2000. The Sacklers paid $635 million for false marketing of Oxycontin in 2007, and three Purdue executives have pleaded guilty to criminal charges. None have served prison time.
The Sackler family, owners of Purdue Pharma, have reaped $14 BILLION by pushing opioids on the American public. The Sackler dynasty was founded by three brothers from Brooklyn who were Jewish immigrants from eastern Europe. Arthur Sackler, the oldest brother, was a pioneer in pharmaceutical advertising and was inducted into the Medical Advertising Hall of Fame.
Glazek stated that the opioid industry in the US will go into decline due to lawsuits, new regulations, bad press. and a warning issued by the CDC that opioids may not be good for chronic pain because they become less effective over time. The Sackler family is now pushing their products internationally.
As of Monday morning, California had 15,247 COVID-19 infections and 350 deaths — OUT OF 40 MILLION PEOPLE! California is one of the largest economies in the world, yet the entire state has been effectively crippled because 0.0004% of the population has infections of some sort.
The White House Covid-19 Task Force and CDC have relied on faulty computer models with high death rate predictions that are enormously overestimated. The unreliable projections have crippled the US economy with lockdowns that have put tens of millions out of work.
The official narrative is that non-ionizing radiation emitted by 5G is not harmful in spite of the fact that numerous studies show it can damage human health. In 2011, 30 international scientists classified RF-EMFs as “possibly carcinogenic to humans”.
President Trump, who is a huge supporter of 5G, signed the ‘Secure 5G and Beyond Act’ that requires the roll out of 5G technology within 6 months. Public comment will be open for 60 days while Americans are ordered to stay inside, preventing participation or protest.
The CDC has created a new policy to keep track of Coronavirus deaths that includes any case where the virus “caused or is assumed to have caused or contributed to death.” Confirmed lab tests are not required! [Actually, that has been the case all along, but this announcement makes it official policy.]
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti is of the same persuasion. He said, “You know the old expression about snitches. Well, in this case, snitches get rewards. … We want to thank you for turning folks in and making sure we are all safe.”
The lockdown across most of the US has put labor markets in free fall and forced millions of people out of work – and with that comes hunger. After hunger and loss of utilities, come riots. Then martial law. Do you think those who called the lockdown don’t know this?
The US FDA has approved a new test to detect COVID-19. The blood test detects antibodies to the virus rather than the virus itself. Neither the false positives nor the genuine positives will be a measure of risk but, none the less, they will be used as proof that the ‘deadly’ pandemic is spreading.
Dr. Colleen Smith, who produced a video about mass deaths at Elmhurst Hospital, attended the NYU School of Medicine as a “Simulation Fellow” and gives lectures on medical-crisis simulations, raising the reasonable question whether her video shows a real or simulated event.
The Mises Institute article states: “Neither the Trump administration nor Congress has the legal authority to shut down American life absent at least baseline due process.” Ron Paul says the pandemic is being used by politicians to spend money with wild abandon and to take away civil liberties.
While police have stopped arresting people for certain crimes, Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best told citizens that efforts to deal with the pandemic included vigilance against “hate crimes”. Don’t call the police for protection against prowling or theft, but be sure call if you see “hate”.
A major concern is the faulty pandemic computer models used at imperial College in the UK that projected millions of deaths when, in truth, Covid-19 death rates are similar to the common flu. They say the coronavirus is no more dangerous than a bad cold.
Jon Rappoport, who has studied epidemics and pandemics for 35 years, marshals the evidence in this series of podcasts that the Covid-19 pandemic is one of the most colossal deceptions the world has ever seen. This is investigative journalism at its best.
A man living in a smoke shop fired shots after three juveniles wearing masks broke into the store to rob it, and he wounded one of them. The man who fired the shots is in prison now without bail and faces up to 20 years for protecting himself.
The CDC website states, “Among 457 ICU admissions and 1,037 non-ICU hospitalizations, 358 (78%) and 732 (71%), respectively occurred among persons with one or more reported underlying health condition.”
Daniel McAdams says the number of people dying from COVID-19 are very low, yet Anthony Fauci is claiming that 100,000 to 200,000 people are going to die if Trump puts an end to lockdown. Fauci says that, if the president does nothing, two-million people will die.
The University of Oxford study indicates COVID-19 may have infected half the British population. The results suggest that the coronavirus is not as nearly as serious as claimed by the Imperial College, which predicted that half-a-million people in the UK would die.
People who question the mainstream media’s claims of hospitals looking like war zones due to floods of people infected and dying from the coronavirus have filmed scenes at hospitals that appear empty, as though the narrative has been invented.

US deaths from drug overdoses skyrocketed 21% last year, and for the second straight year dragged down American life expectancy. The government figures put drug deaths at 63,600, up from about 52,000 in 2015. For the first time, the powerful painkiller Fentanyl, and its close opioid cousins, played a bigger role in the deaths than any other legal or illegal drug, surpassing prescription pain pills and heroin. The highest drug death rates were in ages 25 to 54.
The potential that th drug will be diverted and abused is likely. AcelRx, the manufacturer of Dsuvia, anticipates $1.1 billion in annual sales despite public health risks, which pale in comparison to the enormous profits that the company stands to reap from sales.
Just as California’s law went into effect allowing the recreational sale of marijuana, and despite the fact that 40+ states allow marijuana for personal and/or medical use, AG Jeff Sessions rescinded federal guidelines that previously allowed the states to make their own policy on this issue. [The federal government continues to wage war against the marijuana industry but will not touch the problem of opioids, which is much more serious and far more deadly. Do you suppose campaign donations by Big Pharma might have something to do with that?]
