Our children will be going back to school in 3-6 weeks. Over that time span, I plan on publishing some helpful tips on protecting your child while in the care of others, namely the schools. Most schools do an excellent job watching out for the children under their care. However, there are some who have an agenda, and that agenda is not always in the best interest, safety and welfare of our children. Therefore, I am going to take these opportunities and share my concerns with you in the hope that you can benefit from what I have managed to learn.
In this article, we are going to look at a phenomenon which is forcing many unneeded medications down the throats of our children, and sometimes, with devastating consequences. The following paragraphs express my concerns over a variety of medications that our children are being forced to take.
The Ritalin Conspiracy
Let’s make up a brain disorder, which parallels normal restlessness of children and then transform a dangerous drug, methamphetamine, and get as many kids on the drug as possible. It is good work if you can find it and pharmaceutical companies like Merck and Eli Lilly are leading the way in medical fraud and in the name of record corporate profits
The use of Ritalin has become so rampant, that even the DEA has become alarmed by the tremendous increase in the prescribing of these drugs in recent years. Since 1990, prescriptions for methylphenidate have increased by 500%, while prescriptions for amphetamine for the same purpose have increased 400%. The American Pediatric Association claims Ritalin is over prescribed by 600%.
For well over a decade, many scientists have speculated that ADD drugs are dangerous and can cause serious injury and death. Etta Brown, a licensed educational psychologist and author of Learning Disabilities: Understanding the Problem and Managing the Challenges explained in response to her study that drugs like Ritalin actually destroy the neural function in children’s brains. As a result, children who have undergone treatment with Ritalin will actually have a much more difficult time processing information and learning new things. This kind of defeats the purpose of getting children to sit still in school while placed in a zombified state.
Brown further reported that Ritalin is responsible for the development of a permanent tic in the face, neck, and head of many of the children who have taken or are taking it. Ironically, Ritalin is responsible for causing far more serious neurological damage than the problems it is alleged to treat. Meta analyses studies over the years have revealed that while drugs like Ritalin visibly place children into a trance like state, these drugs destroy the vulnerable, delicate and developing nervous systems which can and does permanently cripple their ability to function as normal human beings.
The Gardasil Conspiracy
In an era when Gardasil has resulted in needless tragedy for over 40,000 children who have been vaccinated by well-intentioned doctors who are ignorant of the side effects, we are now witnessing states like California mandating the forced inoculation of young girls with Gardasil.
What the medical establishment is not telling you is that thousands of girls are having adverse reactions to the HPV Vaccines, some have even died -at last count, at least 103 lives have been lost to Gardasil. This is a brilliant strategy being invoked by California. Let’s kill the girls, thus preventing them from having sex, thus, preventing STD’s.
You remember MERCK don’t you? They were the creator of the wonder death drug, Vioxx. This is the same Merck, who only after intense pressure from the medical community and the media decided to pull the dangerous drug, Vioxx, from the market after an estimated 140,000 adverse reactions had already occurred. And the pulling of Vioxx occurred only after a safety trial was stopped because there was an undeniable and increased risk for serious cardiovascular dangers such as heart attacks and strokes from using the drug.
Merck has been no less reckless in their administration of Gardasil as they were with Vioxx. First and foremost, Merck and the Food and Drug Administration’s clinical trials have been called into question for blatant fraud committed during the required FDA testing period. Both the control group and the experimental group, in the clinical trials, were given the aluminum adjuvant contained in the Gardasil. Control group and experimental group comparisons are done to ensure public safety from adverse side effects as much as possible. In this case, it would have be standard practice to provide the control group with a saline solution instead of the aluminum adjuvant in order to determine the risk posed by the adjuvant given to the experimental group. In failing to follow these research norms, Merck and the FDA have endangered the public health.
These research protocols violate every known tenant to proper research; it represents an air of unprofessionalism, not to mention criminal fraud, which clearly demonstrates collusion to commit fraud against the general public on behalf of Merck as sponsored by the FDA. In fact, Judicial Watch was forced to file a lawsuit under the Public Records Act in order to obtain the obfuscated side effect results as the FDA tried to cover up their own complicity in this research fraud by refusing to release the relevant documents.
Gardasil is marketed as a vaccine that prevents cancer, but the drug has not been evaluated for the potential to cause cancer or genotoxicity. Gardasil is a prophylactic, preventative vaccine and is of absolutely no value in the treatment of a pre-existing HPV infection. It is neither a cancer vaccine nor a cure; yet, the public has been led to believe that this is the case. The New England Journal of Medicine found that there remains no conclusive proof that Gardasil altered the course of HPV-16 or HPV-18 infection for which the patient was symptomatic prior to the administration of the first dose. In other words, this is fraud in the first degree.
Gardasil is the most costly vaccine ever to be approved by the FDA. However, its long-term effectiveness is not known and several estimates state that Gardasil’s life as a vaccine could be only two to three years. This opens up the distinct possibility that a Gardasil vaccinated child will require several booster shots which will undoubtedly increase the bottom line for Merck, but the risk for side-effects among the vaccinated could increase exponentially with each successive vaccination.
The VAERS reports show that as many as eighteen people have died after receiving Gardasil. The VAERS reports document identifies 38 reports of Guillain-Barre Syndrome among juvenile females who previously received the Gardasil vaccine. Guillain-Barre Syndrome is a catastrophic illness that attacks the nervous system which can and often does result in paralysis. Ironically, Gardasil is being developed against only four types of HPV. However, there are over 100 strains of HPV, 30 of which are transmitted sexually. Just what could Governor Brown and Atkins have been thinking?
Do you not think that this is the first time that this kind of dangerous medical fraud has been and will be visited upon your children for profit and political career advancement? Think again! The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that boys of the age of 11 to 12 years should be vaccinated with the vaccine against HPV with the Gardasil vaccination. Even my doctors are serving the Big Pharma agenda, as evidenced by the fact that my son’s former pediatrician relentlessly tried to give my then 11 year old son the Gardasil injection. When I presented the good doctor with some of the data contained in this report, he replied “your ideas are not contained within the mainstream of medicine.” Since when is scientific research required to reflect the mainstream of the Big Pharma agenda? The moral of this story is to fire your doctor and find a health care provider who is committed to the welfare of their patients.
A recent investigation found the number of prescriptions for psychotropic drugs for US children more than doubled between 1995 and 2000 and it also revealed that foster children are prescribed such psychotropic drugs at a rate 12 times higher than other children on Medicaid.
Over one million American children now take antipsychotics each year, and tens of thousands of them are under the age of five. Across the United States, 7.5 % of children aged 6-17 take a prescribed psychotropic medication to over-diagnosed mental health difficulties.
Psychotropic Drugs, Children and Violent Enacting Behavior
Despite 22 international drug regulatory warnings on psychiatric drugs which have meticulously cited effects of mania, hostility, violence and even homicidal ideation, and dozens of high profile shootings tied to psychiatric drug use, there has yet to be a federal investigation on the link between psychiatric drugs and acts of senseless violence. At least 34 school shootings and/or school-related acts of violence have been committed by those taking or withdrawing from psychiatric drugs resulting in 166 wounded and 78 killed.
Brain Damage Resulting from the Use of Psychotropic Drugs
The clinical effect of chronic exposure to psychoactive substances, including psychiatric drugs, produces effects very similar to those of close-head injury due to traumatic brain injury (TBI) In laymen’s terms, psychotropic drugs, given to a developing brain, which occurs until about age 19, can permanently change the brain. If the structure of the brain is changed, the performance of the brain also changes.
The introduction of psychotropic drug use for children under 18 can impact memory, mood, cognitive functioning, imitate dementia, emulate Postconcussive Syndrome and it can even imitate the effects of Traumatic Brain Injury. These drugs are highly addictive and withdrawal can lead to violent enactive behavior and suicide. Generalized or global harm to the brain from any cause produces very similar mental effects. The brain and its associated mental processes respond in a very similar fashion to injuries from causes as diverse as electroshock. Children who take these drugs can emotionally present with wartime PTSD, lead to chronic abuse of alcohol and street drugs, lead to a long-term exposure to psychiatric polydrug treatment, and long-term exposure to particular classes of psychiatric drugs including stimulants, benzodiazepines, lithium and antipsychotic drugs.
The effects of these presenting conditions can prove devastating to those children who grow up and try and obtain health insurance.

You can see that based upon the dates of the research studies, we have known about these effects for some time and this knowledge has done nothing to dissuade the use of these dangerous drugs on the young.
Government and School Collusion
In April of 2002, by Executive Order, President George W. Bush convened a 22 member panel which sought to identify policies that could be implemented by all levels of government which would promote successful mental health treatment for all children and adults. In July of 2003, the NFC formally recommended that schools were in the best position to commence the screening of all Americans beginning with America’s students and school employees. The NFC implemented their recommendations, in November of 2004, with a $20 million dollar appropriation.
This led to the creation of a program called Teen Screen, which made its way into 43 states, until the public outcry arose and the public demanded an end to the program which was beset by bribing kids to kids to take psychological exams at schools which produced and 80% false positive rate. The children would then be referred, often without parental notice to greedy psychiatrists who were all to willing to prescribing dangerous psychotropic drugs.
In 2009, I interviewed Theresa Rhoades on my talk show to discuss her lawsuit victory, on behalf of her daughter Chelsea, in a Teen Screen related matter. The Rhoades judgment did much to awaken the nation. As a result many protest groups formed in an effort to shut down Teen Screen.
A brief, but more detailed description of the Teen Screen Program can found here.
There has been a stunning development. Teen Screen, despite massive government funding from two administrations and the National Institute of Health, is shutting down operations. They have succumbed to the massive outcry against this evil being perpetrated against our children. Bowing to public pressure, Teen Screen closed its doors and the abuse has temporarily been mitigated. However, can this really be the end of the story? Do you not think that Big Pharma will not return with a suitcase of money for each school district to drug your children? Some school districts will say no to this abuse and shoddy science. Some will not. It is your job to make sure your child’s school acts responsibly.
It is up to each parent to realize that your children are not the property of Big Pharma, the schools or the government. It is your duty as their parent to say no to this abuse and not permit your child to become a victim and turn our children into docile and manageable children.
