Big Pharma Owns Congress, According to Major Federal Player

This sort of philandering was once a clandestine thing, not to be spoken of but by fringe lunatics and conspiracy theorists, a Venn diagram of which would have quite a bit of overlap.

There are dirty little secrets all over Washington DC, percolating in the endless expanses of the Deep State Swamp.  Above those belches piles of putrid untruths, however, lies a nigh-impenetrable canopy of corruption.

For all of the smalltime swindlers and half-assed hornswogglers of The Beltway, there are exponentially more big-time, mob-boss-channeling cutthroats living off the fat of the land.  These are the industrialists whose dynastic family wealth is all but a game of riches at this point:  The likelihood that any of these elite families could spend their fortunes before the Yellowstone Caldera erupts is asinine…they’re only still playing the game in order to have bragging rights on the rest of the ultra-wealthy.

In Congress, this evil has manifested itself in several distinct channels, most often vilified as Big Oil, Big Pharma, or Big Tobacco…any of the “Big” industries would be appropriate here.

The lobbyists for these corporate interest groups then infiltrate Congress with handshakes and manhattans, gaining favor only for the benefit of their employers.  This shapes law, these last call conversations at DC Swamp bars.  This is where money and politics should never have intersected.

This sort of philandering was once a clandestine thing, not to be spoken of but by fringe lunatics and conspiracy theorists, a Venn diagram of which would have quite a bit of overlap.

One former FDA official is looking to change all that.

Dr. Raeford Brown, a pediatric anesthesia specialist at the UK Kentucky Children’s Hospital and chair of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Committee on Analgesics and Anesthetics, has been openly critical of big pharma and the lack of proper oversight from the FDA.

Despite many politicians, particularly declared presidential candidates, beginning to speak out against big pharma, Brown does not think that anything will come out of it “because Congress is owned by pharma.”

“The pharmaceutical industry pours millions of dollars into the legislative branch every single year,” he told Yahoo Finance. “In 2016, they put $100 million into the elections. That’s a ton of money.”

And Brown made it clear that this wasn’t some sort of veiled attack on the White House, either.

“I’m really much more concerned because Congress is supposed to have oversight for the FDA,” Brown said. “If the FDA isn’t going to hold pharma accountable, and Congress is getting paid to not hold pharma accountable, then it really doesn’t matter who the president is because it’s really about Congress.”

The Founding Fathers would have warned us about such a future if they had the foresight to see that far ahead; a world in which those who want your money spend it on our government, who we also pay with our tax money, in order to make it easier for the drug company to take it again.

Michael Avenatti’s Troubles are Far From Over Says Famous Former Client

Published

Michael Avenatti

Yesterday was a bad day for celebrity lawyer Michael Avenatti. Actually, that’s a bit of an understatement.  Yesterday was a terrible day for Michael Avenatti. The man famously nicknamed “creepy porn lawyer” by Tucker Carlson was hit with two separate sets of charges, on each coast of this beautiful nation, stemming from illegal activities in which he attempted to “shake down” Nike. Now, Avenatti’s most famous client to date, Stormy Daniels, wants the world to know that this may very well be only the tip of the iceberg of her former lawyer’s sins. https://twitter.com/StormyDaniels/status/1110240069619572738 Avenatti had done a poor job in recent months of reversing any stereotypes that people may have concerning lawyers, that’s for certain. In a statement yesterday, Avenatti was brief and terse, spending much of his time behind the microphone thanking the authorities involved for their professionalism.

Dems and Trump Agree: Release As Much of The Mueller Report as Possible

When Trump and the democrats agree on something, but Mitch McConnell doesn’t, where do we go from here?

It isn’t very often that you’ll find Donald Trump and  a majority of the democratic party on the same page…especially in regard to the Russian “collusion” conspiracy theory. For nearly two years the democrats, along with their lapdogs in the “infotainment” industry, had already precluded that Donald Trump was some sort of Russian double agent, handpicked by the Kremlin to rise to the highest office in the land in order to do Vladimir Putin’s bidding. Yes, it was absurd, and yes, we’re glad that Robert Mueller sorted that out for us. Now, the democrats, the American people, and Donald Trump all seem to agree:  Show us the report. The republicans, on the other hand, seem hesitant. House Democrats pressed the Justice Department to provide the full report from special counsel Robert Mueller even as Republicans gleefully called for them to “move on” from the Russia investigation . President Donald Trump accused those responsible for launching Mueller’s probe of “treasonous things against our country” and said they “certainly will be looked into.” Trump said the release of Mueller’s full report “wouldn’t bother me at all,” and Democrats quickly put that statement to the test, demanding that his administration hand over the entire document and not just Sunday’s four-page summary from Attorney General William Barr. The President has said on several occasions that releasing the entire report would be amenable to him, as he maintains his innocence in the matter. Mitch McConnell yesterday struck down an attempt to make the entire report public – a move that has raised some eyebrows among Trump supporters and other conservatives.
