ANTIDEPRESSANT-INDUCED SUICIDE OF ROBIN WILLIAMS AKA MURDER & HOW PHARMA PROFITED

Today is the One Year Anniversary of Robin Williams’ Death

According to Newsweek the death of Robin Williams caused an unprecedented mark on suicide hotline which suicide prevention experts are still trying to make sense of.

“The impact has continued into this calendar year. In 2015, visits to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention’s web site have been up 60 percent. Local call lines have also seen an impact; the Crisis Services hotline in Buffalo, New York, for instance, says that it has seen a 15 percent increase in call volume during the first seven months of 2015 compared with the same period in 2014. Executive director Jessica C. Pirro notes Williams’s suicide and encouragement to seek help as a possible cause.

“At the time of the loss [of Williams], there was such an enormous spike in interest in the whole topic of suicide,” says Robert Gebbia, the CEO of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP). “We saw increases at the time in calls to the crisis line, visits to the website.… Like most things, it certainly waned a bit. But I think there was a lasting bump in interest in our society by people around the country.”

And just how much money did Pharma pull in from that “lasting bump in interest” surrounding suicide and the hotlines set up by who?

Just WHO is the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention?

You do not need to look very far to find out who is behind this organization. As you will recall I recently put out an article on how Senator Charles Grassley found in a Senate probe that NAMI, the National Alliance for Mental Illness, is funded 80% by Pharma.

Well at first glance this American Foundation for Suicide Prevention has a couple of very interesting fellows as directors on their Board. First of all there is Charles B. Nemeroff, M.D., Ph.D. now at the University of Miami after a Senate probe found that he had hidden millions in income from Pharma as the department chair in Psychiatry for Emory University. Which you can find information on in this older blog I put out on him: http://www.drugawareness.org/grassley-seeks-more-info-on-conflict-of-interest-policies-at-medical-schools-3/

Interestingly Dr. Nemeroff was also the lead featured speaker this year at the American Psychiatric Association convention.

Another noted director on their board is J. John Mann, M.D. from Columbia University Medical Center. John Mann is quoted extensively in my book on antidepressants, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare!, because of his extensive research on serotonin which basically proves the serotonin hypothesis behind antidepressants to be completely backwards.

Andy Vickery who has been the lead attorney in fighting the majority of suicide cases nationwide against the makers of SSRI antidepressants referred to Dr. Mann at the 2006 FDA hearing as a “Pharma Whore” which becomes quite apparent when you read his early research on serotonin and then hear him speak about it when under oath in court or hear the opposite from him when he testifys to the FDA. Under oath he says when antidepressants work by impairing serotonin metabolism (which they all do) they will produce impulsive murder or suicide. When testifying to the FDA you will hear the exact opposite come out of his mouth about the safety of these drugs.

So How Much Did Pharma Make By Killing Robin Williams?

So just how much money did Pharma make by Robin Williiam’s dying on the SNRI antidepressant Remeron – one of the two SNRI antidepressants Andrea Yates was taking when she drowned her five children? Obviously Robin’s death brought in a whole lot of new customers who are now addicted to these very highly addictive antidepressant medications. And how many of them have now already lost their lives in the way Robin lost his?

This will make money for Phama for many years to come. Robins’ death, just as all the other suicides and murder-suicides induced by their antidepressants, was not a sad and tragic thing for them as it was for the rest of us who know well how he really died and how all the rest of them died. I am sure they still smile all the way to the bank! Profiting from murder is what this is….beyond blood money! How long will it go on before the world wakes up to this biggest lie of all that surrounds us?

PROZAC EYES: VT Social Worker, 3 Relatives Killed Over CPS/DCF Custody Battle

Jody Herring

JODY HERRING

Laughing and calm after the killings Jody Herring pleaded not guilty today of shooting and killing a social worker and 3 of her own relatives last Friday only weeks after losing custody of her nine year old daughter to the state of Vermont. This killing of a DCF/CPS worker is certainly not a first like this and there is likely to be many more of these cases.

Why would I say that?

Because it is common practice for DCF/CPS to put children they take into the system on antidepressants since of course they are depressed after being ripped away from their families. But not only does DCF/CPS drug the children with these drugs known to produce both homicidal and suicidal compulsions, they also do everything possible, including working with family court judges, to force everyone on an antidepressant who is remaining at home in a family who has a child taken. I watched them do it to a friend in my old neighborhood just three years ago. Luckily she and her other children knew enough to refuse the drugs in spite of them working to force them on them any way they could think of.

The most likely reason why the DCF/CPS workers want everyone else drugged is because the large majority of these social workers are on antidepressants themselves and far too many of them completely psychotic on them already! The social worker supervisor involved in my friend’s case admitted she had been on the same antidepressant, Zoloft, which they forced the 13 year old daughter on, for a total of 20 years!

In a case I worked on in Texas several years ago the man was an ex-social worker from Chicago. After running into legal problems as a result of Prozac he had weaned off the drug and began to realize how many insane things he had done while on it. He shared with me that while a social worker in Chicago he had become convinced by his Prozac-fueled delusions that a family with three children were Satan worshipers and became determined to remove the children from that home.

So convinced was he of those delusions that he even went to Satan worship meetings and allowed them to put blood and semen all over him, enduring it all in order to get more information to take the children from this family. He said that the grandparents had even come from the North East to try to stop him from doing this but he had been able to convince everyone otherwise and the children had been removed from the home. He wondered if there was any way to get the children back to their family.

Then in a case in Utah a DCF/CPS worker admittedly on Effexor informed the mother, whose children she had taken out of the home, that she carried a gun in her purse. This information was given to the mother as a threat. To give you an idea of how insane this case was the children were taken because the mother had refused to allow her daughter who had seizures to take a medication recentley prescribed to her. The drug prescribed was Adderall and the obvious reason the mother did not want her daughter to take the drug is that stimulant medications like Adderall are contraindicated for those with seizures because they trigger seizures!

So the reasons DCF/CPS used for keeping her children (they took both of her children over this) was because the mother owned a knitting machine and as a Mormon had food storage – something members are taught to have in order to be prepared for any kind of emergency situation such a natural disasters, loss of employment, medical crisis, etc. The worker told the mother that having a knitting machine was evidence of her suffering from OCD and having food storage was a hoarding disorder. So the mother agreed to get rid of both.

Of course doing so did nothing toward getting her children back. Now for the most ironic piece of information in this case….this mother had just been honored by being designated as Utah’s “Mother of the Year”!

This is your tax dollars at work! Is it any wonder that these people are being targeted by those they oppress, especially when they are then forcing them on medications that produce the majority of the mass shootings in this country?

To be fair in this case it should be noted that with Jody Herring’s previous drug charges she could have been given antidepressants in a court ordered drug rehab program rather than DCF/CPS forcing her on medication. The practice of the large majority of drug rehab programs is to take someone off one illegal drug and put them on five plus prescription medications instead.

I AM ALARMED AT THE MONSTER (SSRI/SNRI antidepressants) I CREATED! …Dr. Candace Pert

Candace-Pert

Dr. Candace Pert, Chief of Brain Biochemistry, Clinical Neuroscience Branch,

at the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH)

Please meet my friend and fellow member of our Board of Directors at the International Coalition for Drug Awareness from 1997 until her passing in 2013, Dr. Candace Pert, …. IF YOU HAVE EVER TAKEN AN ANTIDEPRESSANT OR HAVE A LOVED ONE ON THEM you need to know more about who Candace Pert was and the significant part she played in the birth of the SSRI & SNRI antidepressants and the public statement she made strongly warning against these drugs. I refuse to allow her message warning about these drugs to die with her! I know she would want her voice heard.

Dr. Pert publicly came out against Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors in October of 1997 in TIME magazine. She boldly stated: “I am alarmed at the monster that Johns Hopkins neuroscientist Solomon Snyder and I created when we discovered the simple binding assay for drug receptors 25 years ago . . . quote from Dr. Candace Pert:

“I am alarmed at the monster that Johns Hopkins neuroscientist Solomon Snyder and I created when we discovered the simple binding assay for drug receptors 25 years ago. Prozac and other antidepressant serotonin-receptor-active compounds may also cause cardiovascular problems in some susceptible people after long-term use, which has become common practice despite the lack of safety studies.

“The public is being misinformed about the precision of these selective serotonin-uptake inhibitors when the medical profession oversimplifies their action in the brain and ignores the body as if it exists merely to carry the head around! In short, these molecules of emotion regulate every aspect of our physiology. A new paradigm has evolved, with implications that life-style changes such as diet and exercise can offer profound, safe and natural mood elevation.”

Letter to the Editor of TIME Magazine, October 20, 1997, page 8.

Dr. Pert also taught that,  “Our physiology is perfectly designed for bliss and this perfection is dynamic, so taking responsibility for your own health is important.”

And who is Dr. Candace Pert? The following bio from our website contains that information:

Dr. Candace B. Pert, PhD (1946 – 2013)

“I am alarmed at the monster (serotonergic antidepressants) I created!”

Candace Pert, the discoverer of the binding assay for drug receptors which made Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors possible, joined our board in 1997 where she served until her far too early passing in September of 2013. Dr. Pert was an internationally recognized pharmacologist who published over 250 research articles and was a significant contributor to the emergence of Mind-Body Medicine as an area of legitimate scientific research in the 1980’s.

Candace Pert rose to prominence as a 27 year old graduate student at The Johns Hopkins Medical School for her discovery of the long sought and highly elusive opioid receptor in 1973, a major step in the advancement of neuroscience. The discovery of the opioid receptor would, in 1978, earn the coveted Albert Lasker Award, often a precursor to the Nobel Prize. The award went to Solomon H. Snyder, who headed the lab where Candace did the work. Dr. Pert was not cited. Shortly thereafter, Dr. Pert became Chief of the Section on Brain Biochemistry, Clinical Neuroscience Branch, at the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) in 1983. Later in her career, she held a Research Professorship in the Department of Physiology and Biophysics at Georgetown University School of Medicine in Washington, DC. At the time of her death in 2013, Dr. Pert was working as the Chief Scientific Officer of Rapid Pharmaceuticals, which she co-founded with Dr. Michael Ruff. The company continues her research on Peptide T and an AIDS vaccine, in addition to developing new peptide drugs for traumatic brain injuries, Alzheimer’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis and neuropathic pain.

Dr. Pert appeared in the feature film What the Bleep Do We Know!?? and was an on air contributor to Bill Moyer’s TV program Healing and the Mind. She is the author of the books Molecules of Emotion:The Scientific Basis Behind Mind-Body Medicine (Scribner, 1997) and Everything You Need to Know to Feel Go(o)d (Hay House, 2006). She also authored the musical guided imagery CD Psychosomatic Wellness: Healing your Body-Mind. Her AIDS drug Peptide T was featured in the 2013 Oscar winning movie Dallas Buyers Club.

Links for ordering her book, MOLECULES OF EMOTION, can be found on our “Recommended Books” page.)

[We report with saddened hearts the passing of Dr. Pert in September of 2013]

PLEASE REFER ANYONE ALARMED BY DR. PERT’S STATEMENT TO THE SAFE WITHDRAWAL CD BELOW!!  We do not want people thinking they should just stop these medications without knowing how to go about that safely.

MEDS: FOUR PSYCH COMMITMENTS-MAN ENTERS THEATER WITH AX, PELLET GUN, PEPPER SPRAY

TN theater shooting3

Antioch, Tennessee Theater Attack

Wearing a surgical mask, armed with an ax, pellet gun, pepper spray and a bomb the psychologically troubled man, Vincente David Montano, 29, who had been reported missing by his family attacked those in a theater with him. Luckily only seven others were in the theater. Three were hurt. One man suffered a wound to his shoulder from the ax. But when the shooter, who began his attack with pepper spray, pulled the pellet gun on officers and pulled the trigger five officers opened fire killing him. According to his brother, Vincente had been committed twice in 2004 and twice in 2007.

From the following article on the case we read: “Such attacks have become all too common, said Metro Nashville Police Chief Steve Anderson.

“To the general public, anywhere we gather there is likely to be an incident,” Anderson said. “Obviously, in this day and time we need to be mindful of our circumstances, mindful of our surroundings. But this is maybe what we call the new normal. We can’t just shut down America, we can’t say we’re not going to theaters, we can’t say we’re not going to church. We carry on. But we need to be mindful of our surroundings as we do that.”

What is most interesting about this statement is that we have had quite a few shootings in theaters and churches. The Bishop in the LDS Church in mid California who was killed a few years ago was shot by a man with the same kind of history. He was a vet who had been drugged for years. He had made a previous suicide attempt after killing the families cats and his wife attempted suicide with him. They did not succeed and he went on to commit murder and then suicide by cop as this fellow attempted. As for me for years I have not gone to theaters and I have kept a close eye on those at Church, working to make sure I know who is on what. Those people I watch for any aggitation. If I notice legs bouncing, etc. I leave.

The question remains in all of these cases as to the level of consciousness of the perpetrator – something that is never tested in these court cases and should be. Testing is still back in the dark ages with blood levels of drugs rather than brain waves which will detect the level of consciousness and therefore culpability. These are drugs that accumulate in brain tissue at an alarming rate. Testing the blood tells us nothing about the level of toxicity.

Deadly drugs! Here are 5000 other examples of the violence they produce:

www.SSRIstories.NET

EXCESS SEROTONIN PRODUCES EXTREME VIOLENCE

What so many were not aware of is that an increase in serotonin by an accompanying decrease in one’s ability to metabolize serotonin was long known to produce both impulsive murder and suicide. See this study out of the Southern California:

ANTIDEPRESSANTS PRODUCE SLEEP DISORDER KNOWN TO

INCLUDE BOTH MURDER AND SUICIDE

What the world remains unaware of is the fact is that 86% of those who are diagnosed with the most deadly sleep disorder known as REM Sleep Disorder (RBD) are currently taking antidepressants. REM Sleep Disorder is a condition in which there is no paralysis during sleep thus allowing the patient to act out the dreams or nightmares they are having. Tragically 80% of those going into this sleep disorder hurt themselves or others including both murder and suicide as a result.

This is possibly the most deadly of all reactions one can have to antidepressants. Even more frightening though is to learn that before the introduction of the SSRI antidepressants RBD was known mainly as a drug withdrawal effect. Thus the chances of going into this dangerous reaction should be expected to increase as one goes into withdrawal. This is why it is so important to avoid as much of the withdrawal effects as possible by tapering off the antidepressant very, very slowly.

ANTIDEPRESSANTS??? FATHER KILLS WIFE AND SELF IN FRONT OF CHILDREN IN HOUSTON

080615-ktrk-murder-suicide-02

Suicidal Father Shoots Wife and Self in Front of Children

Thank you to the doctor’s wife who sent this case in their own area this morning…

Everyone should know that antidepressants are almost always the common denominator in murder/suicides any more. In tracking these cases for 25 years I rarely find a murder/suicide that does not involve these drugs.

Doctors give them couples antidepressants because they are naturally depressed over the breakup of their family and this is far too often the end result. Note that the father was first suicidal and then turned the gun on his wife and then himself while obviously suffering both suicidal ideation and homicidal ideation.

Remember before these drugs when depressed people used to go off alone to kill themselves rather than taking loved ones with them?

View the news report here: 

http://abc13.com/news/police-kids-witness-parents-murder-suicide/905959/

The drugs are known to cause paranoia, aggression and violence which can easily lead to a divorce as well. So the drugs could have produced the separation to begin with. The question always needs to be asked for the sake of the children left behind.

I have testified in these cases for almost 25 years (comedian Phil Hartman and his wife were the most high profile case). Their children deserved to know the truth about how they lost their parents!

HISTORY OF ANTIDEPRESSANTS – Just Where Did Your Medication Come From?

Eli Lilly heroin bottle Eli Lilly’s Heroin

[Note that they actually had to label their drugs “poison” back then]

Eli Lilly brought us the entire SSRI antidepressant era when they introduced the first SSRI Prozac the end of 1987. Since they were the ones that developed and introduced the first of these serotonin specific antidepressants anyone taking an antidepressant should want to know more about them and their history as all of the new antidepressants are clones of Prozac and Lilly has introduced another one called Cymbalta that is now facing a huge lawsuit for the withdrawal affect associated with it. But Prozac was the mother drug of them all. So how and why did they develop and introduce this drug? I was shocked by what I learned when doing the research to write my book about antidepressants: “Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare!” – the first book on the market discussing the adverse effects, physical as well as psychiatric, on the SSRI antidepressants. I would think that anyone taking one of these drugs would really want to know this about the history of Eli Lilly and how Prozac was born and brought to us which literally opened the SSRI/SNRI antidepressant Pandora’s Box we are all now working so hard to close shut in order to stop the suffering.

First: Prozac’s Approval Was Bought!!

Meet Dr. John Virapen – The Man Who BOUGHT Prozac’s Approval “I indirectly contributed to the death of . . . people, whose shadows now haunt me.” 

Yes, I did say “BOUGHT” the approval for Prozac! It was a bribe to the man in charge of drug approvals in Sweden. Once the managing director for Eli Lilly in Sweden he now wants “to see chemical medicine taken out of the equation.” John and I did our first show together in 2010 in Provo, Utah. I believe it was his first in America discussing how he, under direct orders from his superiors at Eli Lilly, bribed the approval for Prozac (You will not believe how little he says in this interview that he paid to get that approval!!) in Sweden thereby paving the way for the approval of all the Prozac clones that followed it – Zoloft, Paxil, Luvox, Sarafem, Stratera,  Celexa, Lexapro, Effexor, Remeron, Pristiq, Cymbalta, Brisdelle, etc.

Why Sweden? That was because Sweden was known for their strict approval guidelines for medications so that other countries would rush the drug through the approval process in their countries with little scrutiny. This is how the SSRI antidepressants were born as the designer drugs in our world which now bring in $11 Billion annually.

If anyone really thought Prozac’s approval had anything to do with any benefit the drug might have or that the benefits were backed by scientific research then here is their wake up call! The next time anyone attempts to defend an antidepressant and states that any of these antidepressants are helping patients please share this post with them so that they learn the truth about these drugs and their birth!!! In doing that PLEASE share with them the WITHDRAWAL WARNING posted below! If you do not know what you are doing in withdrawal it can be the most dangerous period of taking an antidepressant and tragically MOST doctors remain unaware of that fact!

You can listen to that show at this link: http://www.drugawareness.org/meet-dr-john-virapen-the-man-who-bought-prozacs-approval/

Eli Lilly Developed LSD For The CIA’s Mind Control Program

Eli Lilly is also the developer and held the patent on the synthetic version of LSD which they developed for the CIA to use for mind control – it was the CIA’s drug of choice for that purpose. So much so that the CIA took 80% of their initial budget to buy up all the LSD they could find.

LSD was originally introduced by Sandoz in Switzerland as a way to chemically induce insanity. Of course there were few who lined up to take the drug knowing that, but when Lilly developed their synthetic version of LSD they also developed a whole new marketing plan for it. The world would soon hear that this new wonder drug was going to cure mental illness, cure alcoholism and aid in psychoanalysis! Clearly Lilly understood that it’s all in the marketing!!

The following is taken from the 1994 edition of Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare! There has since been a 2001 and 2014 edition of the book and I am still waiting for the world to catch up with all the research on these drugs that was in the first edition of the book! The book is availale on our website at www.drugawareness.org and can be obtained three ways: #1 download an ebook for $25 #2 order a DVD containing a triple combo of the ebook, the withdrawal CD, and a two hour lecture by me for $39 #3 order a month long membership at drugawareness.org for $30 which gives access to the ebook, the withdrawal CD and ALL 7 DVDs for a month (a $113 value) plus dozens of radio shows done over the past 25 years with multiple in depth 3 & 4 hour long interviews.

LSD Was Banned So CIA Turned To Pharma For A Replacement

Allow me to pick out the most shocking paragraph in this section in case you do not have the time to read the entire excerpt right now:

“Even though secret operations ended in 1958, the CIA made it clear [when LSD was banned by Congress in 1966] that they would continue to keep a close eye on contemporary research by the pharmaceutical companies as they proceeded with their research for a sort of behavior-changing drug – one to fit their specifications for mind control which might be marketed for use in psychoanalysis.

“Apparently they retained a hope that the pharmaceutical companies might yet find a drug to fit their specifications for a mind control agent through research in psychiatric drug treatments. Their suggestion that they would keep a close eye on the progress of the commercial interests should have been quite an incentive for any aggressive profit seeking pharmaceutical firm. How many of the psychoactive drugs presently on the market are there as a result of this hope of landing a government contract?

“Knowing the history of these drugs makes it difficult, if not just plain insane, to trust the pharmaceutical companies!”

Only a Coincidence That Lilly Gave Us LSD & Prozac?

Is it only a coincidence that the same company who supplied the CIA with LSD for mind control and patented and planned to market LSD as a cure for mental illness would be the same company to introduce the SSRI antidepressants to the market two decades later after the CIA made it very clear that they would continue looking for a drug similar to the one Lilly had developed for them – especially when these drugs produce a gradual LSD effect by increasing serotonin? I say gradual because when LSD goes into the brain it reads it as a flood of serotonin into the brain because LSD mimics serotonin to produce its hallucinogenic effects. Rather than flooding the brain with serotonin the SSRIs and SNRIs increase serotonin gradually so that it becomes more confusing to the user and the observer that this chemically-induced mental illness/psychosis is actually a drug effect.

Here is the full book excerpt from the Introductory Chapter to Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare! titled Legal vs. Illegal Drugs A Broken Record Of History Repeating Itself …Over…And Over…And Over Again:

“The CIA had a real heyday with LSD research. In 1953, as they turned a hopeful eye to LSD, their secret project, focusing on chemical warfare and mind control, MK-ULTRA, was born – a project which would not be known to the public for many years to come. They were initially funded $300,000 for investigation of several drugs from cocaine to nicotine. The Agency considered LSD to be of such promise that in November, 1953 they sent two men with a black bag containing $240,000 (80% of their funds) in cash to Switzerland to buy up Sandoz’s entire supply of LSD. They were authorized to purchase an unbelievable amount of 10 kilos – 100 million doses. Much to their surprise they discovered that Sandoz’s total output of LSD since its discovery in 1943 was only forty grams, not quite two ounces. After negotiations Sandoz agreed to supply the CIA with 100 grams of LSD every week and also to notify them of anyone else who was ordering the drug.

The CIA then turned to Eli Lilly, the makers of Prozac (who had previously introduced Heroin and Methadone in their products list) as a domestic source for LSD. They proposed that Lilly develop a synthetic LSD since the natural source of LSD, ergot fungus, was difficult to cultivate.

A company memo dated October 26, 1954 by Eli Lilly to then CIA head Allen Dulles announced that they had been able to bypass the need for ergot fungus in processing the drug and had come up with an LSD made solely from synthetic sources. They went on to suggest that with this breakthrough in mass production that “in a matter of months LSD would be available in tonnage quantities.” Lilly also went on to state that they were continuing their research to develop a “covert use” of LSD. (ACID DREAMS) The following December LOOK magazine reported that LSD “may actually help psychiatrists clear up mental illness.” It was also promoted as a cure for alcoholism and as an “aid in facilitating psychoanalysis”. In fact, the LSD advertising campaign now has an all too familiar ring as we recognize many of the same claims Lilly has been making for Prozac over the last six years.

The MERCK DIRECTORY lists Lilly as obtaining two patents on LSD just two months after the LOOK article hit the press. Lilly offered to supply unlimited amounts of LSD to the CIA and as the memo to Agency head, Allen Dulles, pointed out, this “meant that LSD could finally be taken seriously as a chemical warfare agent.”

Next the CIA turned to the psychological community, particularly those who were already investigating LSD’s relation to mental illness, to help them with their research. “Most were eager to help, provided the Agency picked up the tab. They had few moral qualms: if the CIA wanted to finance basic research in an area ignored by traditional organizations like the National Institute of Mental Health, where was the problem?” (STORMING HEAVEN, LSD AND THE AMERICAN DREAM, p. 81)

Their fronts were the Josiah Macy Foundation and the Geschickter Fund for Medical Research. They paid out as much as $40,000 per year for research at Mass. Mental Health. Harold Abramson in New York received $85,000 for his research project. Others included Carl Pfeiffer at the University of Illinois, and Harold Hodge at the University of Rochester. As reported by Dr. Robert F. Ulrich and Dr. Bernard M. Patten at the Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Neurology (1990), in Miami, Florida, the men hired to carry out this “morally questionable research” were given government grants to do so – our tax dollars at work.

The CIA had trouble obtaining subjects for their research so they turned to George Hunter White. He referred to the drug as “Stormy” to describe the unpredictably variable effects of LSD. During the day White was busily engaged tracking down drug pushers, yet as the sun went down he became the pusher. White employed prostitutes for a series of experiments from coast to coast. April 13, 1953, a brothel operation, dubbed “Midnight Climax”, was born. They disguised their “laboratory” as a bordello where the unsuspecting “clients” were brought in, secretly dosed with LSD and then their behavior was observed behind a two-way mirror.

Just as the Nazi doctors in Dachau preyed on the helpless, the CIA searched for subjects who were unable to resist. They used prisoners, mental patients, sexual deviants, the terminally ill, foreigners and ethnic minorities. The Addiction Research Center of the US Public Health Service Hospital in Lexington, Kentucky was a place for heroin addicts to kick their habit. It was also one of fifteen penal and mental institutions the CIA used as a supply of guinea pigs for its covert drug research.

They worked hand in hand with the National Institutes of Mental Health (NIMH). “When the CIA came across a new drug (usually supplied by American pharmaceutical firms) that needed testing, they frequently sent it over to their chief doctor at Lexington, where an ample supply of captive guinea pigs was readily available.” (ACID DREAMS , p. 24) It has since been disclosed that by the mid 60’s 1500 unsuspecting military personnel were also used as guinea pigs in LSD research. Some have filed suits against the government for damages.

Edgewood Arsenal, headquarters of the Army Chemical Corps., had for twenty years employed Nazi scientists on their staff. These scientists had been brought to the US after World War II through a program designed to utilize the skills of German researchers and technicians called Project Paperclip where 1600 Nazi scientists were brought here to America to continue their research they were conducting in the German concentration camps. They had employed at least eight Nazi scientists who were involved in administering psychoactive chemicals to soldiers. “No avenue of experimentation was ignored and no population ruled out as being unfit to act as experimental guinea pigs. Men, women, children, prisoners, mental patients, criminal sexual-psychopaths, schizophrenics, the elderly, and even terminally ill cancer patients were all used to perfect for the CIA the techniques of total control of the mind.” (THE MIND MANIPULATORS, p. 151)

“Within the CIA itself, Gottlieb [the agent in charge of chemical experimentation], White and his associates were taking LSD regularly, tripping at the office, at Agency parties, measuring their mental equilibrium against those of their colleagues. Turn your back in the morning and some wiseacre would slip a few micrograms into your coffee. It was a game played with the most exalted of weapons, the mind, and sometimes embarrassing things happened. Case-hardened spooks would break down crying or go all gooey about the ‘brotherhood of man’. Once or twice things went really awry, with paranoid agents escaping into the bustle of downtown Washington, their anxious colleagues in hot pursuit. After one spectacular chase the quarry was finally run to ground in Virginia, where they found him crouched under a fountain, babbling about those ‘terrible monster(s) with fantastic eyes’ that had pursued him across Washington. Indeed every car he met had sent a jolt of terror through his body.” ( STORMING HEAVEN – LSD AND THE AMERICAN DREAM, p. 82)

Although records indicate that as early as 1953 the ridiculously dangerous drug-induced antics of the CIA turned deadly, they did not cease their LSD “research” until 1958. The deadly 1953 incident was the case of Dr. Frank Olsen, an army doctor who specialized in designing chemical warfare projects like lipstick that would kill the minute it touched the skin, deadly deodorants, etc. It was decided that he would make a good candidate for LSD experimentation. Two days after unknowingly ingesting LSD at a MK-ULTRA party where he drank punch which had been secretly spiked with the drug, he believed he was going insane and committed suicide by jumping to his death from a New York hotel window.

It was not until years later that the truth came out and in 1979, twenty-six years after his death, his widow was finally awarded $750,000 in connection with her husband’s death by the U.S. government. So with our money these men were paid their salaries, they used our money to pay for the LSD and the “research,” they used us as uninformed guinea pigs and then they had us pay for the damages. They certainly knew how to add insult to injury.

Even though secret operations ended in 1958, the CIA made it clear that they would continue to keep a close eye on contemporary research by the pharmaceutical companies as they proceeded with their research for a sort of behavior – changing drug – one to fit their specifications for mind control which might be marketed for use in psychoanalysis. Apparently they retained a hope that the pharmaceutical companies might yet find a drug to fit their specifications through research in psychiatric drug treatments. Their suggestion that they would keep a close eye on the progress of the commercial interests should have been quite an incentive for any aggressive profit seeking company. How many of the psychoactive drugs presently on the market are there as a result of this hope of landing a government contract? Knowing the history of these drugs makes it difficult, if not just plain insane, to trust the pharmaceutical companies!

When the CIA’s Inspector General analyzed the ethics of MK-ULTRA in 1963 with such morally questionable projects as Midnight Climax, he was more concerned with the public finding out about the project rather than the fact that citizens were being subjected unknowingly to a test of behavior altering drugs! He stated that he feared that public knowledge of this information would ruin the reputations of not only the Agency and their agents, but also put the reputations of the professional researchers in jeopardy. He apparently did not realize that the activities of those individuals had already ruined their reputations and his concern was an afterthought. In light of this information about the CIA and its repulsive beginnings is it any wonder that President Kennedy had called for the dismantling of the CIA just before his assassination?

To demonstrate the controversy surrounding the use of LSD in this country, at the same time that the NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE called for an end to all research with LSD, what should have been the most unlikely organization of all, the National Institute of Mental Health was funding 33 LSD projects at the cost of $1.7 million in tax dollars.

How long was it before the general public woke up to the psychedelic nightmare they had begun to experience with LSD? By mid 1966 there where three Congressional subcommittees conducting hearings on LSD, the Juvenile Delinquency Subcommittee of the Senate Judiciary Committee; the Subcommittee on Intergovernmental Relations of the House Government Operations Committee, and the Subcommittee on Executive Reorganization of the Senate Subcommittee on Government Operations. In October of 1966 possession of LSD became illegal in every state in this country.

“Crazy faith in better living through chemistry” A large portion of this information on the CIA and LSD was reported at the Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Neurology in 1990 by Drs. Robert F Ulrich and Bernard M. Patten in a presentation entitled, ” The Rise, Decline, and Fall of LSD .” LSD’s developer was Albert Hofmann. Drs. Ulrich and Patten related that, “Hofmann, himself suspects that the materialistic American life-style and resultant feelings of alienation from nature and lack of a meaningful philosophy of life drew people” to LSD. He “favored the potential uses of LSD; stating that if people learned to use the drug more wisely under the proper conditions, in medi cinal practice, and in association with meditation, it could become a ‘wonder child’.” (Keep in mind that this is a drug known to twist every perception we possess as humans and was first marketed by Sandoz in Switzerland to chemically induce psychosis.)

These two doctors reacted to Hofmann’s opinion by stating, “We now know that will never happen. LSD was part of an era of crazy faith in better living through chemistry. ”

Only three years after this presentation was made to the nation’s neurologists, this “crazy faith in better living through chemistry” they expected to never happen again is exactly what Dr. Peter Kramer’s book, LISTENING TO PROZAC, A Psychiatrist Explores Antidepressant Drugs and the Remaking of the Self , is rehashing for us. It would be interesting to learn how Drs. Ulrich and Patten feel about Dr. Kramer’s suggestion that we create a better living through the chemistry of Lilly’s latest “wonder drug,” Prozac. In fact it would be interesting to know if Dr. Kramer himself realizes that he is proposing once again Hoffman’s philosophies. As we proceed further and take a closer look at the similarities in action which these two drugs, Prozac and LSD, have within the brain, you will see why it is so curious that such similar arguments have been raised to justify the use of these two Lilly progenies.

Although Congress attempted to stop the spread of LSD after the CIA experimented with it, now, exactly fifty years after the discovery of LSD, the drug is making a comeback. It’s use is skyrocketing among young people. Among young adults, about one of 10 has experimented with LSD. According to Dr. Henry Abraham, director of psychiatric research at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in Boston, “Use of LSD is really like playing Russian roulette with chemicals,” Abraham said. “You can spin the chamber and maybe five times you get away with it. Maybe the sixth time you blow your brains out. Instead of bullets, they are using drugs. God bless ’em.”

What debt we owe to those who introduced us to the wonders of LSD. The pharmaceuticals have given us one dangerous and highly addictive psychoactive prescription drug after another: heroin, methadone, cocaine, LSD, the amphetamines and methamphetamines, steroids, PCP, Quaaludes, Extasy, etc., etc., etc. The list goes on and on and has not stopped yet. Once these drugs have been released to the public for medicinal purposes, how do we ever control their use? Education as to their effects appears to be our only hope. If we can understand what we are doing to ourselves and the cost involved to each of us personally and then to society as a whole, perhaps we will see the insanity behind our reaching out so rapidly and with such trust, devouring each new drug as fast as they offer one more. This memory of past mistakes with these previous drugs, which time and experience have proven to be extremely dangerous, should warn us of impending problems in the future and instill a far more cautious approach to our use of prescription drugs, especially new ones. Learning from past mistakes is one of our most important reasons for the keeping of records and studying history, because learning from the mistakes of others is far less painful than learning from one’s own mistakes.

Yet have we really learned anything from these devastatingly disastrous mistakes in our past with such seriously mind-altering, highly addictive drugs – drugs which in the beginning were thought to be “safe”? How long can it take us to learn that once out there it takes lots of time and red tape to remove them from the market? And even after they are removed, stopping their illegal use once a large population has become addicted to them is next to impossible. Although these drugs have caused some of the most terribly violent and destructive behavior known to man, it does not appear to be the case that we have learned our lesson on drugs and their effects as yet. We jump to try all the new ones as they are candy coated and dangled in front of us on our television sets, in magazines, in newspapers, etc., etc., yes, even by the doctors we are trusting with our lives.”

MEDICATION: RECENTLY RELEASED PSYCH PATIENT DECAPITATES WOMAN, TWO DOGS, ATTEMPTS SUICIDE

ABC15 Arizona

This case today in Phoenix (see video of news report below) is a de-ja-vu scenario of the 1991 Kevin Kohlenberg case from my book Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare! Like Kevin, after killing his German girlfriend in France, he spent hours butchering himself. (We know that because he recorded it all.) He too amputated his right hand with a dull kitchen knife using his left hand even though he was right handed and also gouged his eye out over many hours of multilating himself – all this from being prescribed Prozac for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome! The French investigators concluded this was not a murder/suicide but was the direct result of an American medication, Prozac.

Kevin came from a wealthy family and was in Europe setting up an orphanage for African children. One was set up in his memory after his death. His mother bravely stood before the FDA in September of 1991 to tell his story and share what French investigators concluded in Kevin’s case. Yet at that time, in spite of all the evidence, the FDA committee put no restrictions on Prozac, nor did they pull the drug from the market as they should have, thus allowing the introduction of all the Prozac clones the world has been plagued with since. So we continue to live this serotonin nightmare as it is repeated over and over and over again in every neighborhood in this country as we also watch it spread around the world!

IT IS THE MEDICATION CAUSING THE VIOLENCE!

I REPEAT, IT IS THE SO CALLED “MEDICATION” THAT IS CAUSING SUCH VIOLENCE!!!! LSD and PCP mimich serotonin to produce the violence we see with those drugs. These drugs produce similar results as they increase serotonin levels over time!

Take a look at this list of 5000 cases and you will find nearly every school shooting and mass shooting: www.ssristories.NET

If that is not enough for people to understand this drug-induced nightmare they should listen to this boy talk about taking a gun to school: http://www.drugawareness.org/why-i-took-a-gun-to-school-1/

And you can find more about how these drugs produce such violence by going to our main website at www.drugawareness.org ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Please share all these links because after testifying in these cases for 25 years it scares the you know what out of me to know what I know about antidepressants and other serotonergic drugs!!!!!

Another frightening aspect of this case is the reporter’s name, Kim Tobin. It sounds too much like Tim Tobin the husband left behind in the Donald Schell case. Tim sued Glaxo (Tobin vs Glaxo) for Paxil causing the mass murder/suicide that took the lives of his wife and infant daughter. He won the case and it became the inspiration for the movie “Cake” with Jennifer Aniston.

ANTIDEPRESSANTS PRODUCE A DEADLY SLEEP DISORDER

KNOWN TO INCLUDE BOTH MURDER AND SUICIDE

What the world remains unaware of is the fact is that 86% of those who are diagnosed with the most deadly sleep disorder known as REM Sleep Disorder (RBD) are currently taking antidepressants. REM Sleep Disorder is a condition in which there is no paralysis during sleep thus allowing the patient to act out the dreams or nightmares they are having. Tragically 80% of those going into this sleep disorder hurt themselves or others including both murder and suicide as a result.

This is possibly the most deadly of all reactions one can have to antidepressants. Even more frightening though is to learn that before the introduction of the SSRI antidepressants RBD was known mainly as a drug withdrawal effect. Thus the chances of going into this dangerous reaction should be expected to increase as one goes into withdrawal. This is why it is so important to avoid as much of the withdrawal effects as possible by tapering off the antidepressant very, very slowly.

EXCESS SEROTONIN PRODUCES EXTREME VIOLENCE

What so many were not aware of is that an increase in serotonin by an accompanying decrease in one’s ability to metabolize serotonin has long been known to produce both impulsive murder and suicide coupled with extreme out of character violence. See this study out of the University of Southern California which makes it very clear that the key to human violence is triggered by an excess of serotonin:  http://www.drugawareness.org/mutant-mice-key-to-human-violence-an-excess-serotonin/

ZOLOFT DOUBLED THEN TRIPLED BEFORE BATMAN SHOOTING IN COLORADO

jamesholmes

THE FULLY UNINFORMED JURY IN JAMES HOLMES CASE

In this country we believe that a jury should be fully informed in order to produce justice in a case. But this past week a completely uninformed Colorado jury found James Holmes sane, rather than insane (in spite of testimony from experts and anyone who can see what “crazy” looks like), and they found him guilty of murder. Now this same uninformed jury has said that the death penalty should be an option. I will say that in 25 years of testifying in antidepressant-induced criminal cases I have RARELY seen a fully informed jury. Wonder why?

You see drug companies not only wine and dine the doctors peddling their drugs but they also wine and dine judges. The purpose in that? Simple. If the people who commit these crimes under the influence of their antidepressants are found guilty this removes the spotlight from their drug thus keeping their drug on the market continuing to bring in millions. It also prevents wrongful death suits being filed against the drug maker for the victims of the crimes. So in the long run the bottom line is greatly protected which is always the goal.

Now this fully uninformed jury is about the decide if this young man is now to be put to death for the crime he committed on Zoloft and Klonopin. Did the jury ever hear that the Zoloft or Klonopin could produce psychosis and when psychosis is chemically induced it is generally transitory, meaning it comes and goes depending upon the body’s ability to manage the toxicity? Obviously not. Did the jury ever hear that when you increase sertonin via an inability to metabolize serotonin – exactly how antidepressants work – it is known to produce impulsive murder and suicide? No. Did the jury ever hear that the arresting officer reported that he had never arrested anyone with so much sweat pouring off his body, which indicates Serotonin Syndrome – a toxic level of serotonin. Serotonin Syndrome does not only fry the brain, but can actually kill a patient within a 24 hour period? No, they heard no evidence on that either!

Was James Holmes’ attorney aware of any of this so that he could introduce it in court? Yes! I supplied James Holmes’ attorney with this information that should have been introduced in this case as a defense for James Holmes and would have brought answers for the families of the victims and for society as a whole.

DOSAGE INCREASES

But even more shocking that I only recently heard myself is that when James complained of having homicidal thoughts his dose of Zoloft was first doubled and then when he continued to complain of the homicidal compulsions (a known side effect of antidepressants and referred to as “homicidal ideation”) his dose of Zoloft was TRIPLED about a month before the shooting! This information is from a new book out on the case called “The Sprial Notebook” and without doubt should have been used to show involuntary intoxication in this case!

SIMILARITIES TO COLUMBINE

This last week I attended the premiere of the movie I am in called American Addict 2 – The Big Lie. In that movie there is a video clip of James Holmes which I watched within a couple of hours after hearing the guilty verdict in his case. Everyone should see it. It is James giving a lecture and interacting with the person introducing him. You will see a perfectly normal young man with a great sense of humor, obviously very bright and very cordial. In viewing that it is easy to see how rapidly these antidepressant drugs can take someone who is normal into a complete psychosis via the increase in serotonin which is what LSD and PCP mimic to produce hallucinations/psychosis.

Ironically this entire scenario is little different than the case of Eric Harris at Columbine. Eric was first started on Zoloft and after only six weeks on it reported homicidal thoughts that frightened him. His doctors, to their credit, at least knew enough to get him off Zoloft. (So what did they think was causing the homicidal compulsions?) Tragically they thought if they spelled the name of the SSRI antidepressant differently that the reactions would change! Go figure! So given Luvox Eric went on to act on the homicidal ideation he got from these antidepressant drugs. And he did so a month or two after a doubling of his dose of Luvox. Homicidal ideation is compulsive thoughts and actions of killing and methods of killing. And I am still asking why we as a society continue to believe that it is okay to have prescription medications on the market that can cause either homicial or suicidal ideations?!

ANTIDEPRESSANTS: MOTHERS KILLING THEIR CHILDREN – LEEZA GIBBONS SHOW

Leeza Gibbons

EPIDEMIC OF MOTHERS (AND NOW GRANDMOTHERS!) KILLING CHILDREN

Leeza Gibbons with Dr. Ann Blake-Tracy addresses the issue of mothers on antidepressants killing their children. Cases discussed: Robert Kirkwood whose wife killed their two small children and herself while on Effexor. Christina Riggs, a nurse whose case is featured here being interviewed from prison, was on Amitriptyline (Elavil) when she killed her two small children. She was not successful in her own suicide attempt, but the state of Arkansas completed that suicide for her after she refused to appeal or do anything else to defend herself so they would kill her. Be sure to read the science below about how antidepressants cause this type of completely out of character violence.

In the early 1990’s the world began to see something they had rarely seen before – an epidemic of mothers killing their children and doing so by more and more violent methods. Those around them were generally in shock by these actions and the one main common denominator was the use of an antidepressant by the mother who had killed her children. These were often described as the very best and most caring mothers. No one could believe what they were seeing. In the summer of 1999 Leeza Gibbons agreed to do a show on this issue even though we were not allowed to mention the brand names of the medications because of their advertisers.

ANTIDEPRESSANTS PRODUCE A SLEEP DISORDER KNOWN TO INCLUDE BOTH MURDER AND SUICIDE

What the world remains unaware of is the fact is that 86% of those who are diagnosed with the most deadly sleep disorder known as REM Sleep Disorder (RBD) are currently taking antidepressants. REM Sleep Disorder is a condition in which there is no paralysis during sleep thus allowing the patient to act out the dreams or nightmares they are having. Tragically 80% of those going into this sleep disorder hurt themselves or others including both murder and suicide as a result.

This is possibly the most deadly of all reactions one can have to antidepressants. Even more frightening though is to learn that before the introduction of the SSRI antidepressants RBD was known mainly as a drug withdrawal effect. Thus the chances of going into this dangerous reaction should be expected to increase as one goes into withdrawal. This is why it is so important to avoid as much of the withdrawal effects as possible by tapering off the antidepressant very, very slowly.

EXCESS SEROTONIN PRODUCES EXTREME VIOLENCE

What so many were not aware of is that an increase in serotonin by an accompanying decrease in one’s ability to metabolize serotonin was long known to produce both impulsive murder and suicide. See this study: http://www.drugawareness.org/mutant-mice-key-to-human-violence-an-excess-serotonin/

chattanooga shooter

CHATTANOOGA SHOOTER, Mohammod Youssuf Abdulazeez, 24

Thanks to our Washington state director Jay Baadsgaard for this information from the Wall Street Journal and thanks to everyone else for sending all the other clues. As if anyone should be surprised to find these drugs at this point…..

5th paragraph reads:
“Mr. Abdulazeez, who was killed Thursday by police after they said he had opened fire at two military facilities, suffered from depression for years, his family said in a statement. He had been on and off various medications, including antidepressants and sleeping pills, a family representative said. At the time of the shooting he was taking muscle relaxants for back pain resulting from his martial-arts training, the friend said.”

EXCESS SEROTONIN PRODUCES VIOLENCE

For decades I have worked to explain that the hypothesis behind antidepressants is backwards – serotonin is NOT low in depression, it is elevated instead. The research is very clear on that if anyone would bother to read it. I have 21 pages of references to that research in small print to it back up. Impairing ones’ ability to metabolize serotonin, as antidepressants are designed to do, causes massive problems which you can listent to me detail to the FDA in 2004 before the Black Box Warning for suicide was added to ALL antidepressant medications ever approved by the FDA and any they might approve in the future:

Some of the research that makes it more clear than most is that done at the University of Southern California by Dr. Jean Chen Shih on mutant mice born lacking the MAO enzyme which metabolizes serotonin:
