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.

Public Trust in Mueller Probe Plummets in New Polling

This is BAD NEWS for Mr. Mueller, who’s longstanding and widespread investigation may or may not be nearing an end.

Robert Mueller

For months upon months, the American people have been wearing a rather large albatross around their figurative neck.

For you see, in the shadows of Capitol Hill lurks Robert Mueller:  The Special Counsel tasked, originally, with finding evidence of collusion between the 2016 Donald Trump campaign and the Russian government.

So far, this boogeyman of the GOP has done little but annoy some of the outer fringes of Trump’s former inner-circle, and in no connection to Russia, the Kremlin, or Vladimir Putin yet.  This has led a great many Americans to cast their own doubts on the Mueller probe, wondering instead if this is all but a “witch hunt”, out to gather any and all dirt necessary to keep President Trump from winning reelection.

New polling suggests that more and more Americans are finding themselves in this world of doubt.

Amid signs that special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian election interference may be near its conclusion, a new USA TODAY/Suffolk University Poll finds that trust in Mueller has eroded and half of Americans now agree with President Trump’s contention that he has been the victim of a “witch hunt.”

Support for the House of Representatives to seriously consider impeaching the president has dropped since last October by 10 percentage points, to 28 percent.

Despite that, the survey shows a nation that remains skeptical of Trump’s honesty and deeply divided by his leadership. A 52 percent majority say they have little or no trust in the president’s denials that his 2016 campaign colluded with Moscow in the election that put him in the Oval Office.

But here’s the kicker…

What’s more, Trump’s relentless attacks on Mueller and his inquiry have taken a toll on the special counsel’s credibility. Now, 28 percent say they have a lot of trust in the former FBI director’s investigation to be fair and accurate. That’s the lowest level to date, and down five points since December.

There are conflicting reports as to the status of Mueller’s investigation, with dueling tales of crescendo and climax appearing nearly daily in the news.

There are some mysteries that the human race may never truly get to the bottom of, and that’s okay.

It’s these ethereal wonderments that add a little spooky spice to our lives.  Everyone has a ghost story, a lot of folks think they’ve seen UFO’s, and how many times have you heard a song on the radio just after thinking about it?

Pop culture is full of these mysteries as well; The Bermuda Triangle, the alleged UFO crash at Roswell, and others have been fascinating people all over the world for ages.

Now it seems as though one of England’s most sinister mysteries has been solved.

A blood-covered shawl found at one of the murder scenes is believed to contain DNA from both butchered victim Catherine Eddowes and the world’s most infamous serial killer.

Researchers at Liverpool John Moores University conducted genetic tests on the sample long-thought to have belonged to the Ripper himself, who they now believe to be Pole Aaron Kosminski.

The process used was painstaking, but for the sake of accuracy.

“We describe for the first time systematic, molecular level analysis of the only surviving physical evidence linked to the Jack the Ripper murders,” the authors  wrote in the Journal of Forensic Sciences.

This is also the second time that Kosminski was scientifically linked to the shawl by DNA.
