Opioids have killed more than 450,000 people over the past two decades. Last week, as part of a sweeping settlement with the DOJ, Purdue Pharma, controlled by the Sackler family, pleaded guilty to three criminal charges. The bankrupt company admitted it obstructed the DEA by claiming to have a program to keep their drugs off of the black market when there was no plan in place; Purdue acknowledged that it provided the DEA with misleading information to boost its manufacturing quotas, and it pushed doctors to prescribe more of its drugs through various kickback schemes. Officials have said Purdue will also face more than $8-billion in civil and criminal penalties, but the company will likely pay only $225-million under its agreement with federal prosecutors.
According to bankruptcy-court filings, the prestigious consulting firm McKinsey advised in a 2017 presentation to Purdue Pharma, the maker of OxyContin, offering a rebate to distributors whenever a patient overdosed on OxyContin, in part “to counter the emotional messages from mothers with teenagers that overdosed.” The New York Times reported that McKinsey, in a 2017 presentation, estimated that 2,484 customers of drug store chain CVS would overdose or become addicted to opioids in 2019 and it would pay a rebate of $14,810 “per event.” CVS and Anthem said they never received such rebates.
Later, Purdue would ask McKinsey to “dismantle” the marketing plan, with one member of the Sackler family, which owns Purdue, saying they should’ve done so five years prior. Amid the ravages of addiction and death caused by opioids, McKinsey leaders asked Purdue in 2018 whether they needed to prepare for lawsuits by “eliminating all our documents and emails.”
Powerhouse consulting firm McKinsey & Co. promoted a questionable strategy to increase the sales of OxyContin — giving distributors a rebate for every overdose tied to the pills they sold, according to a report.

A social distancing device emits a loud sound if people are too close to each other. China is already linking coronavirus rules to its onerous social credit score system, so the idea that people could be publicly shamed or punished for getting too close to others is a very real possibility.
Big Tech is moving from wearable monitoring devices to devices embedded within our bodies. IoB will likely be marketed as improving lives and health care. However, the negative consequences, as discussed in this article, far outweigh the benefits.
Martin says Moderna describes its product not as a vaccine, but as “gene-therapy technology” in SEC filings. Neither Moderna or Pfizer make any claims about their products creating immunity or preventing transmission. Moderna’s own clinical study says it is “impractical to measure infection.”
The US Treasury proposed that cryptocurrency exchanges should collect identity data on their own customers and those who transact with their customers. They would be able to see what products they buy, what political preferences they have, where they go, and how long they remain.
Pennsylvania Lieutenant Governor John Fetterman said that “lies” about the legitimacy of the election were not protected under the Constitution.

A document published by the CDC on anaphylaxis following an injection of the RNA COVID-19 vaccine that shows by December 18, a total of 112,807 people received the RNA vaccine. 3,150 of that group were “unable to perform normal daily activities, unable to work, required care from doctor or health care professional.”
Since no one has ever isolated a sample of this theoretical virus, a precise description of its genetic composition is unknown. Therefore, the fact that authorities have published what they claim is its genome is scientific fraud.
John Sullivan, the man who has a history of inciting violence and who was seen urging demonstrators to violence inside the Capitol, appears to have been denounced by Black Lives Matter, leading critics to wonder if the denunciation is a public-relations gesture or if he is working for a government agency.
The CDC, when contacted by the Courier-Press, weighed in on Skelton’s claims — not by casting doubt on them, but by endorsing vaccination for COVID-19 and saying side effects “tend to be mild to moderate and go away quickly.”
Matt Aitchison says a new law in California, SB 1079, will result in the State entering the real-estate-foreclosed home business, which essentially removes competition from investors, and could ultimately socialize real estate as a whole. He warns that this policy may spread to other Democrat-run sates.

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.
President Trump says the crackdown could be “a game changer” for the United States where tens of thousands of people die from opioid overdoses annually. Pardon our skepticism but the exact words of Chinese officials give the impression they will increase regulations but will not ban the drugs.
