Mallinckrodt Sues FDA Over Methylphenidate

Mallinckrodt Sues FDA Over Methylphenidate

Mallinckrodt is a pharmaceutical company with U.S. headquarters in St. Louis, Missouri. One of their products is the generic drug Methylphenidate HCl Extended-Release (ER); methylphenidate is known as Ritalin or Concerta in some branded versions, and is prescribed for the fraudulent diagnosis of ADHD.

According to the St. Louis Business Journal, “the FDA informed [Mallinckrodt] that its methylphenidate ER hydrochloride tablets might not be therapeutically equivalent to Concerta. This means that while the drugs are still approved by the FDA, the agency won’t recommend them as automatic substitutions for Concerta.”

In response, as this FDA action is likely to negatively impact sales of the drug, Mallinckrodt is suing the FDA, claiming that the reclassification of this drug is unwarranted.

While we applaud the FDA for downgrading the status of this drug, we’d like to point out that ADHD is a fictitious disease and methylphenidate is a harmful and addictive psychotropic drug.

Anything that the FDA or Mallinckrodt says about this issue is a red herring, as the actual truth of the matter is that there is no such thing as ADHD, methylphenidate is bad for you, and there are many non-drug alternatives for the symptoms falsely attributed to ADHD.

Perhaps you know someone who says that their child is doing much better since they started taking methylphenidate. A proper response goes something like this: “I’m glad you and your child are doing better, and that your child has not experienced the horrible side effects that many others have experienced. Sometimes real physical conditions can produce similar mental symptoms to the ones your child may be experiencing. A full searching clinical examination by a competent, non-psychiatric, medical doctor might be helpful.”

Common Core Gores Education

Common Core Gores Education

[The quotes are from “Common Core – A Look Behind the Wizard’s Curtain” by Karen Hadley, in The Hard Truth Magazine, Issue 4, 2014. We highly recommend it.]

We have written previously (here and here) about the dangers of the Common Core State Standards Initiative. If you have children in school, you may want to find out more about this, and take some action to stop it.

“The players behind Common Core have worked hard to create the impression that this project will be the salvation of education in America. But it is always a liability to lie in PR … this national restructuring of American education was embedded in President Obama’s 2009 stimulus package called the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 … [which] was used to bribe the states to commit to new standards of education — sight unseen.”

“Nor is it any surprise that the primary creators of the curriculum refer to the Common Core competencies as ‘cognitive and psychological aptitudes’. In short, we’ve finally turned our educational system over to the psychologists lock, stock and barrel.”

“It is only a short step to the Guidance Counselor or psychiatrist on staff who can diagnose the child with ADHD (using the test developed by a company that was recently acquired by Pearson, the Common Core curriculum publisher) and prescriptions may be written and dispensed on the spot, without parents ever knowing.”

It is not just the psychiatric industry in collusion here; it is also the psychology industry. Psychiatric drugs are not the only harmful danger with respect to Common Core. “…there are two characteristics to this initiative that make it among the most serious and fearsome: 1. its utter pervasiveness and 2. its ability to mold the minds and opinions of our children and destroy any concept of sexual morality, as well as their will to learn and succeed.”

Children worldwide are under extremely dangerous assault. Today, parents and teachers are being deceived in the name of improved mental health and better education. The results are devastating. From the beginning of the 20th century in Germany, psychologists and psychiatrists have targeted education to destroy free will. Psychological intervention in schools promotes harmful behaviorist programs such as embodied in Common Core. Academic, knowledge-based curricula have been jettisoned in favor of psychological manipulation that places emotions and beliefs above educational outcomes.

As if that were not enough, the current psychiatric push for mandatory “mental illness screening” of all schoolchildren has Nazi roots that parents and teachers ignore at their own peril. These psychological programs have trampled on the rights and roles of parents and have provided society with rising crime, drug abuse and suicide rates.

Using “gun violence” as its cover, the Obama administration has quietly unleashed a cache of federal dollars that will be used for testing students for signs of mental health issues in K-12 schools.

On Sept. 22, Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia M. Burwell announced $99 million in new federal grants to school districts for mental health services. On Sept. 23, the U.S. Department of Education announced another $70 million in “School Climate Transformation grants;” more than half of the money to be used for “behavioral outcomes.”

These governmental “mental health” programs and “Common Core should strike deep terror into the hearts of every parent, grandparent and American.” Find Out! Fight Back! Contact your state board of education, your legislators, your school principal, superintendent, and school board and let them know what you think. Let us know what you have done.

Captured Teen Terrorist Spills The Secret On ISIS

The drug that makes you lose your mind

The Independent Journal Review recently carried a chilling article on ISIS and terrorism.

In an interview with CBS News, a captured teen terrorist opened up about life as an ISIS fighter. When the Islamic State invaded 15-year-old Kareem Mufleh’s village, he was given two awful options: join the jihadists or experience the horror of being beheaded.

He claims that ISIS gave him the anti-anxiety drug Zolam before he went in to battle. “That drug makes you lose your mind,” he said. “If they give you a suicide belt and tell you to blow yourself up, you’ll do it.”

Xanax (generic Alprazolam), also known as Zolam outside the U.S., is a benzodiazepine often prescribed for anxiety. Patients taking one Xanax tablet each day for several weeks could become addicted. Further, after a patient stops taking Xanax, it takes the brain six to eighteen months to recover from severe withdrawal effects.

Known side effects include exreme anger, hostile behavior, and violence, with suicidal tendencies.

Terrorism is created; it is not human nature. Suicide bombers are made, not born. Ultimately, terrorism is the result of madmen bent on destruction, and these madmen are typically the result of psychiatric or psychological techniques aimed at mind and behavioral control. Suicide bombers are not rational—they are weak and pliant individuals psychologically indoctrinated to murder innocent people without compassion, with no concern for the value of their own lives. They are manufactured assassins. Part of that process involves the use of mind–altering psychiatric drugs.
