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.

AG Barr Tackles Far-Left Extremism; Says Media Is Censoring What’s Going On And Americans Are Being Lied To

Published

Attorney General William Barr is one of those people that President Trump has surrounded himself with that is much like him in very important ways that are desperately needed in the current political climate. Barr is a man unafraid to speak the truth. He’s not easily intimidate by the leftist media and he’s always ready and willing to call them out for their nonsense, which is precisely what he’s done concerning the topic of how the media has covered radical left-wing extremism. The attorney general conducted an interview with Fox News host Mark Levin on Sunday and stated the mainstream media is lying to the public about the extent of far-left violence exploding in streets across the country. Here’s more from The Daily Wire: “We have the citizen reporters, who have these videos of these events, which are quite different than what we get a lot of times from the media, which seems to be censoring the violence,” Levin said to Barr. “No?” “Absolutely. Their narrative – they are projecting a narrative,” Barr said. “When the word narrative came into currency, I knew we were in trouble, because the word narrative really suggests that there’s no objective truth. There’s no real story of what happened, it’s just everyone has their own narrative.” “And you get to then – the press can justify presenting a story that doesn’t really correspond to objective truth, but it’s our narrative. We have a narrative, you have a narrative,” Barr continued. “I’ve been appalled at — on this violence, because it’s happening right out in the streets, anyone with eyes can see what’s happening. They see the violence.” “They see these groups of agitators in their black outfits and their helmets and their shields, which incidentally have the hammer and sickle on them most of…

Massive Rioting And Looting Rocks Chicago After Police-Involved Shooting

Published

Will this nonsense ever just end? How much more violence, rioting, and looting can this country handle before it shatters and folks get super tribal? We’re all ready divided, yet it doesn’t seem this stuff is going to be quelled any time soon. There are now videos circulating online that show widespread rioting, looting, and other forms of violence erupting all throughout the city of Chicago in light of a police-involved shooting that left a young man wounded. Social media users on various platforms posted up videos of people in the city looting Walgreens, Macy’s, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, among many other stores. There was even an exchange of gunfire between looters and police at some point during the evening. No officers were harmed. Check out the details from Fox News: “Absolute chaos in downtown Chicago with more overnight looting and vandalism in the Loop,” tweeted Ryan Baker, an anchor for WBBM-TV. “Appears to be coordinated effort with minimal police presence.” https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1292753400388415489 The Chicago Police Department did not immediately respond to an email from Fox News. The unrest began Sunday afternoon, after police responded to a report of a man with a gun in the city’s Englewood neighborhood. While pursuing that individual on foot, he “turned and fired shots” at officers before being struck himself and taken to a local hospital, Deputy Chief Delonda Tally told Fox 32 Chicago. A crowd that had gathered at the scene then faced off against police and started hurling objects at officers after getting agitated over a false rumor that the suspect – who is in his late teens or early 20s – was a child, investigators add. https://twitter.com/TomAhernCPD/status/1292592711271362566 As of this writing, the condition of the individual who was shot is not known. Chicago’s Civilian Office of Police Accountability has officially launched an investigation…
