The Bogeyman is Coming to Get You

Monday, May 1st, 2017

There is a tradition, especially in film, of a person with mental illness representing the boogeyman — or the reverse case of a boogeyman frightening a person into a traumatic mental state. A boogeyman (also spelled bogeyman) is a folk creature in most cultures used by adults to frighten children into good behavior.

Have you noticed how the media consistently represents someone who goes on a killing spree as having some mental illness? It’s often the first question asked in the case of a mass murderer, i.e. “was he/she ever in a mental hospital?”

In point of fact, there is a relationship between crime and insanity, but that’s not exactly what we are going to discuss right now. We’re more interested in the rush to mental judgment by the media, and by the rush to involuntary commitment instead of a rush to justice and rehabilitation.

The Fresno shooter of Tuesday, April 18 gunned down 3 white men. During his arrest, Kori Ali Muhammad shouted “Allahu Akbar,” but the Fresno Police Chief said the shootings had nothing to do with terrorism.

The media quickly pointed out that in 2005, on the heels of another incident, the court determined that Muhammad suffered from a mental disease, and he was committed to a psychiatric facility for some months.

So there were at least two previous failures — the psychiatric treatment failed, and justice failed.

And they also got it wrong about the terrorism; but that’s not even the point, and just muddies up the real issue, which is that the person committed a crime, but instead he is labeled mentally ill. He’s become the boogeyman.

Criminal acts, terrorism or otherwise, are being reported as mental illness instead of what they really are — criminal acts or terrorism. Oh, don’t call it terrorism, it will upset the sensitive ears of those who prefer to call it mental illness.

No one even asked if he was taking, or withdrawing from, psychotropic drugs — which as we know carry a side effect of violence and suicide.

There will be a rush to involuntarily commit him and give him painful and addictive psychotropic drugs — instead of dealing with the actual criminal act and attempting to rehabilitate him.

By the way, insanity is not an illness, it is an injury. When drug treatments are piled on top of it, drugs known to cause violence and suicide, it becomes even harder to treat because the person is even more desperately injured and pain crazed.

Add on the various prescription drug monitoring programs in society, and we now have a rush to “pre-crime” — where a person is restrained, with involuntary commitment and more drugs, before any crime is committed. We’re moving toward that as a society, where so-called “treatment” occurs to prevent the possibility of a crime, instead of imposing justice after the fact of a crime. And guess who will be deciding when and whom to treat? The psychiatrists.

What are you going to do about it? Find Out! Fight Back!

War, On Drugs

Friday, July 1st, 2016

We thought our subscribers might find this article of interest — “War, On Drugs” by Dr. Peter Frankopan, director of the Oxford Centre for Byzantine Research in the UK. Here is an excerpt:

“Given the well-documented, widespread use of narcotics in modern warfare, it is no surprise to find ISIS also supplying soldiers with stimulants. In the fall of 2015, the largest drug bust in Lebanese history took place at Beirut airport when a Saudi prince tried to board a private jet that was about to fly to Ha’il, in northern Saudi Arabia. Two tons of Captagon were recovered – a drug whose use outside the Middle East is negligible, according to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime.”

“Originally developed in the 1960s, Captagon was designed to treat narcolepsy and attention-deficit disorder. It was banned in most countries because of its addictive nature. Captagon produces feelings of euphoria, a boost in energy and heightened awareness – as well as surging aggression levels, says Richard Rawson, co-director of the Integrated Substance Abuse Programme at the University of California, Los Angeles. A Reuters report from 2014 demonstrated just how widespread the use of drugs has become in Syria since the start of the civil war, and especially how production of stimulants for use by rebel and ISIS forces has soared. The fact that the levels of violence have risen, too – not only with videotaped beheadings, but also mass executions and indiscriminate slaughter – might not be entirely coincidental.”

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.

ISIS Fighters Widely Reported to be Fueled by ADHD Drug

ISIS Fighters Widely Reported to be Fueled by ADHD Drug

CCHR has been exposing the link between psychiatric drugs and violence for decades. Today, CCHR joined ranks with the likes of CNN, The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, The Independent, and hundreds of news outlets in  reporting that “The War on Drugs” has taken on a literal twist, with ISIS fighters being fueled by a stimulant drug known as Captagon – a pharmaceutical cousin of the ADHD drug, Adderall.

As The Boston Globe reports, Captagon is a “toxic fuel” that creates “super-human” fighters. The drug “quickly produces a euphoric intensity in users, allowing fighters to stay up for days, killing with a numb, reckless abandon.”

And a November 21st article, “Breaking Bad: The Stimulant Drugs That Link ISIS and the Nazis,” posted in Haaretz, the world’s leading English-language website for news and analysis of the Middle East, points out, “ISIS is far from the first murderous group to drug its fighters before battle…. The Persian Hashashin did it way back in the 11th century, as did Japanese kamikaze pilots, African militias, Chechen fighters and Nazi soldiers.”

The Glue of Society

The Glue of Society

Religion is the glue that binds a culture together. Yet it has become customary to mock religion in America today.

We’re not talking here about devotion to a particular religious practice. We are talking about a decline in moral values that used to be shored up by our religious faith, religious leaders, and religious communities.

Diversity of belief is a sign of a healthy democracy. Yet we observe not just diversity, but hostility and antagonism.

A society that unjustly restricts the religious practices of one group will likely be found to undermine justice for all other groups.

There is a relationship between religion, religious freedom, and violence that needs further exploration. We find, yet again, that the junk sciences of psychiatry and psychology are involved in the decline of this culture.

A May 2014 study by researchers at Georgetown University and Brigham Young University found that, “Standards and practices of honesty and integrity rest, ultimately, on…ideas of right and wrong, which for most of us are grounded in principles of religion and the teachings of religious leaders.”

As a result of psychiatrists’ subversive plan for religion, the concepts of good and bad behavior, right and wrong conduct and personal responsibility have taken such a beating that people today have few or no guidelines for checking, judging or directing their behavior.

A co-founder of the World Federation for Mental Health, Canadian psychiatrist G. Brock Chisholm, reinforced this master plan in 1945 by targeting religious values and calling for psychiatrists to free “the race … from its crippling burden of good and evil.” Viciously usurping age-old religious principles, psychiatrists have sanitized criminal conduct and defined sin and evil as “mental disorders,” “treatable” with harmful and addictive psychotropic drugs.

Following are several Chisholm quotes:

“To achieve world government, it is necessary to remove from the minds of men their individualism, loyalty to family traditions, national patriotism and religious dogmas…”

“If the race is to be freed from its crippling burden of good and evil it must be psychiatrists who take the original responsibility.”

“The re-interpretation and eventually eradication of the concept of right and wrong which has been the basis of child training, the substitution of intelligent and rational thinking for faith…are the belated objectives of practically all effective psychotherapy. The fact is, that most psychiatrists and psychologists and other respectable people have escaped from these moral chains and are able to observe and think freely.”

Let’s face it, we’ve been fed a pack of lies and we are now seriously trying to eradicate, with terrorism on one side and the “war on terror” on the other side, each other.

Society is coming unglued.

Terrorism and Torture, Oh My!

Terrorism and Torture, Oh My!

The United States government paid two military psychologists $80 million to develop torture tactics that were used against suspected terrorists in the wake of the September 11 attacks on the Pentagon and the World Trade Center.

In 2002, two former Air Force psychologists, James Mitchell and Bruce Jessen, became the masterminds of the CIA’s torture program, according to a new report released by the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. The two men, identified in the report under the pseudonyms Grayson Swigert and Hammond Dunbar, devised and performed torture tactics–including waterboarding and mock burial on some of the CIA’s most significant detainees.

Aside from any human rights considerations about torture, notice the word “psychologists” in the above statement. There were also psychiatrists involved in these affairs, as well as the use of anti-psychotic drugs on detainees. Oh my, but haven’t we been saying all along that psychologists, psychiatrists, and psychotropic drugs are all a matter of human rights violations?

Psychiatry is a coercive practice. One can see this intuitively, as no one would voluntarily subject themselves to psychiatric treatment knowing its devastating consequences.

Numerous studies have verified that psychotropic drugs can take over the human mind against the will of the individual. Except in this case, they were possibly being used to manipulate potential terrorists into confessions rather than to create suicide bombers for terrorist organizations.

In 1955, a Soviet manual entitled Brainwashing: A Synthesis of the Russian Textbook on Psychopolitics was translated and distributed as a public warning by a New York professor. The manual was based on the methods of Ivan Pavlov, a Russian psychiatrist who developed “conditioned response” theories through experiments on dogs in the early 1900s. Pavlov’s work laid the groundwork for a fundamental psychiatric misconception that remains to this day: that, like dogs, men are basically programmable animals, influenced only by fear and reward. Pavlov’s experiments established the foundation for much of the inhuman brainwashing techniques used by the Soviet Union and China in the mid-twentieth century; and now used by the United States Central Intelligence Agency in their Detention and Interrogation Program.

The manual revealed, “The early Russian psychiatrists, pioneering this science of psychiatry, understood thoroughly that hypnosis is induced by acute fear. They discovered it could also be induced by shock of an emotional nature, and also by extreme privation, as well as by blows and drugs.”

In 1942, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill declared psychologists and psychiatrists “capable of doing an immense amount of harm” and that they should be restricted from involvement with armed forces. Apparently no one paid attention.

Now, opportunistic psychologists and psychiatrists push “post-traumatic stress disorder” on victims of war and other devastating events, making money at the expense of their vulnerability.

Citizens, human rights groups, and government officials should work together to ensure governments expose and abolish psychiatry’s hidden manipulation of society.

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.

War and Psychiatrists

War and Psychiatrists

We like to acquaint our readers with interesting things we read, and then work out how psychiatry is involved. The most recent interesting thing we have read (although not the most interesting thing in the world) is an article titled “The Truth About Iraq And why it matters” by Dick Cheney and Liz Cheney, in the July 21, 2014 issue of The Weekly Standard. (Click here to read the article.)

Keep in mind, we are not arguing for or against the Cheneys’ viewpoints; that is something about which one must come to one’s own conclusions. However, we’d like to take two quotes from the article, out of context to be sure, and expound on the issue as it relates to psychiatry.

Quote the first: “We also know, again confirmed in documents captured after the war, that Saddam provided funding, training, and other support to numerous terrorist organizations and individuals over decades, including to Ayman al Zawahiri, the man who leads al Qaeda today.”

A relatively innocuous statement, perhaps — but not to someone who recognizes the name and its relation to psychiatry (which the authors may not recognize, or may not consider significant.)

Here’s the point. Very few may know about an Egyptian psychiatrist, formerly Osama bin Laden’s right hand man, named Ayman al-Zawahiri. Former psychiatrist Ayman al-Zawahiri “is the guy—he’s the operational commander … number one, on the right-hand side of Osama [bin Laden] … He believes that violence is purifying.” [Vincent Cannistraro, former counter-terrorism official, U.S. Central Intelligence Agency]

Ayman al-ZawahiriWell, so bin Laden is now out of the picture, but al-Zawahiri is not.

A psychiatrist and surgeon who was convicted of terrorism in Egypt and sentenced to death in absentia; al-Zawahiri studied behavior, psychology and pharmacology as part of his medical degree at Cairo University. Interpol issued an arrest warrant for al-Zawahiri relating to his role in the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon.

Quote the second: “We won’t defeat our enemies by retreating. We won’t win if we adopt a false narrative about the past, fail to learn the lessons of history, or seek security in disengagement and isolationism. We will only defeat our enemies if we are clear-eyed about the threat and have the will to do what it takes for as long as it takes—until the war is won.”

Cheney was talking about Iraq and al Qaeda. We’re talking about war, terrorism and psychiatry. We think this quote still applies. What do you think?

Army psychiatrist convicted of murder

Monday, August 26th, 2013

Army psychiatrist convicted of murder

A military jury on August 23 convicted Maj. Nidal Hasan in the deadly 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood, returning a unanimous verdict of premeditated murder that makes the Army psychiatrist eligible for the death penalty in the shocking assault against American troops at home by one of their own.

Hasan, a Virginia-born Muslim, said he acted to protect Muslim insurgents abroad from American aggression; and that his attack was a jihad against U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Prosecutors never charged Hasan as a terrorist, in spite of the obvious and intentional terrorism of the attack. Hasan leaked documents during the trial to journalists that revealed him telling military mental health workers that he could “still be a martyr” if executed.

Now, let’s notice the really significant part of this drama — Hasan is a PSYCHIATRIST!

Would anyone reading this be surprised to discover that there is a solid link between psychiatry and terrorism?

Terrorism is created; it is not human nature. Terrorists are made, not born. Ultimately, terrorism is the result of madmen bent on destruction, and these madmen are typically the result of psychiatric behavioral control, and psychiatrists are often found to be consumers of their own treatments.

The huge missing “elephant in the room” is the high likelihood that Hasan was medicated with potent brain-altering, violence-causing, psychiatric drugs. These would be drugs that Hasan had easy access to and which he was probably prescribing widely to his traumatized soldier-patients. Psychiatrists are notorious for treating themselves with their own psychiatric drugs.

Some might express surprise that a man whose profession is about caring would turn to violence. “Caring” actually has nothing to do with it. Modern psychiatry is not about caring for, counseling and empowering people; it’s about medicating, controlling and suppressing them.

Dr. Peter Breggin says that, “The most recent data show that soldiers are being snowed under not only with antidepressants and tranquilizers, but increasingly with antipsychotic drugs like Risperdal, Zyprexa, Geodon and Seroquel. To cover up their own therapeutic impotence, psychiatrists chemically suppress our troops and push them back onto the front lines. That’s the kind of poisonous psychiatry that Hasan was practicing in combination with his poisonous ideology.”

Over the last decade an explosion of gratuitous violence has terrorized the world scene. Examination of these destructive phenomena reveals the influence of psychiatric treatment behind virtually all acts of terrorism. From glorifying the blatantly criminal acts of suicide bombers to reducing the hideous acts of a maniacal murderer to psychological or biological bad luck, psychiatrists on both sides of the terrorist conflict share the same twisted perspective on the criminal mind. This perspective protects and denies the dangerousness of the criminal at the expense of honest citizens.

Most terrorist groups today embrace extremist political views and hold racist positions that range from “white supremacism” and anti-Semitism to radical religious fundamentalism and anti-Westernism. Research shows that psychiatry or psychology has influenced and even created such characteristics, spawning racial and political hatred that has resulted in the murder of millions.

Hasan is a domestic terrorist, a traitor, and a madman — much like the rest of the psychiatric profession which is bent on promoting violence in society with harmful, violence-causing drugs.

Citizens groups and government officials should work together to ensure governments first expose, and then work to abolish, psychiatry’s hidden manipulation of society. Please support your local CCHR in this effort.

Missouri’s Fiscal Year 2013 Operating Budget

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012

Missouri’s Fiscal Year 2013 Operating Budget

By the numbers:

Income

General Revenue $8,013,837,330

Federal Funds $7,905,327,402

Other Funds $8,112,490,994

Total available income after refunds $24,031,655,726

Where it goes

Missouri Department of Mental Health gets 5.8 cents
out of each budget dollar, amounting to about $1.4 billion total.

How many Mental Health cures does that buy? ZERO!

How much Mental Health fraud does that buy? $1.4 billion worth!

The United States loses approximately $100 billion to health care fraud each year, and up to $40 billion of this is due to fraudulent practices in the mental health industry.

The number of cases of senseless violence being reported in the media seems to be increasing. Most of these correlate with the perpetrator being under psychiatric “treatment.” As we’ve been saying, all psychiatric treatments are dangerous, not just psychotropic drugs.

Leading psychiatric agencies such as the World Psychiatric Association and the U.S. National Institute of Mental Health admit that psychiatrists do not know the causes or cures for any mental disorder or what their “treatments” specifically do to the patient. They have only theories and conflicting opinions about their diagnoses and methods, and are lacking any scientific basis for these. As a past president of the World Psychiatric Association stated, “The time when psychiatrists considered that they could cure the mentally ill is gone. In the future, the mentally ill have to learn to live with their illness.”

So, if prescription drugs are more deadly than terrorists, then we might see that drug prescribers are more deadly than terrorists, leading to the inescapable conclusion that psychiatric drug prescribers are more deadly than terrorists.

It’s not such convoluted logic when you consider all we know about
psychiatry, psychiatric fraud and abuse, and psychiatric treatments and drugs.

Oh, you didn’t know that? Where have you been? You’re not really reading these newsletters? We’re devastated! Time to FIND OUT and FIGHT BACK!

Find out how much your state is wasting on psychiatric fraud, then write your state legislators about fraud in the mental health industry. Download and read this CCHR booklet about psychiatric fraud for more information.
