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.

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.

DELUSIONAL: Rachel Maddow Starts Crying On Air After Mueller Report Vindicates Trump

No joke. She actually CRIED on air!

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow is everything that’s wrong with America. She doesn’t understand what makes the United States great, and she’s ignorant when it comes to learning her history. After Special Counsel Robert Mueller turned in his final Russia collusion report to Attorney General Bill Barr, Maddow actually cried on live TV. That’s not hyperbole. She actually cried.

She’s now calling upon Congress to keep digging for links to Russia collusion, regardless of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s findings. From Daily Wire: Failed 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton doesn’t want Congress to give up on pursuing evidence of President Donald Trump colluding with Russian officials to impact the 2016 elections, even if Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report comes up empty. In a podcast with former Daily Beast chief Tina Brown recorded earlier this week, Clinton was clear in delivering her marching orders to the Democratic Congress: keep digging. “There is enough grounds in what has already been made public for the government, for Congress in particular, to be doing more with it,” Clinton said. “And I’m pleased that under Speaker Pelosi, the Democrats are beginning to hold hearings and try to connect some of these dots.” Why would Donald Trump’s former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, seemingly come from out of nowhere to blindside the president? Lynne Patton, who works under Ben Carson at the Department of Housing and Urban Development, knows the answer. In short, it involved a lengthy prison sentence – but not for Cohen. Patton wrote in a Facebook post: What many of you may not be aware of is the fact that I can personally confirm that the ONLY…

BOMBSHELL: Ilhan Omar Holds Secret Fundraisers With Islamic Groups Tied to Terror (Details)

Kind of a big friggin’ deal, isn’t it?

Well, here’s something else that won’t endear Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar (MN) with conservatives. Apparently, Omar has been holding secret fundraisers with Islamic groups that are tied to terror. Makes you wonder, was Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro right when she said Omar wasn’t “America first?” Food for thought, at the very least. Check it out… From Free Beacon: Democratic freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) has been holding a series of secret fundraisers with groups that have been tied to the support of terrorism, appearances that have been closed to the press and hidden from public view. The content of these speeches, given to predominately Muslim audiences, remains unknown, prompting some of Omar’s critics to express concern about the type of rhetoric she is using before these paying audiences, particularly in light of the lawmaker’s repeated use of anti-Semitic tropes in public. Omar recently spoke in Florida at a private event hosted by Islamic Relief, a charity organization long said to have deep ties to groups that advocate terrorism against Israel. Over the weekend, she will appear at another private event in California that is hosted by CAIR-CA PAC, a political action committee affiliated with the Council on American Islamic Relations, or CAIR a group that was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in a massive terror-funding incident. Pirro saw her show canceled for two consecutive Saturday nights after comments she made about freshman Democrat Omar. Many millions of Americans, including President Trump, were not pleased. In fact, it looks like Pirro might’ve been suspended. Check out the pictures below showing Fox News’s lineup. Notice there’s nothing about Pirro on Saturday, 3/23? About the suspension: —@brianstelter reports, per a source, that Fox News suspended @JudgeJeanine for two weeks following her comments on @IlhanMN. (Hence why she wasn’t on air…
