In Dallas, TX 55 years ago today we lost John F. Kennedy in a tragic assassination. We pause today in the middle of this serotonin-induced holocaust, which I have come to call World War III, to honor the 35th president of the United States, John F. Kennedy. This is a war being waged against us all via chemical warfare rather than guns. And after 3 decades of research into these serotonergic drugs I have come to firmly believe President Kennedy was murdered because of his attempt to prevent this from happening to us all which I will explain in detail as you read on.
Because this tragedy happened so long ago before many of you were born, you never had the opportunity to learn much about President Kennedy or the goals he had for our country. Here is a 5 minute YouTube video posted this morning of him speaking about his plans to put an end to this secret society working to destroy our country, our freedoms & our very lives – our modern day Trojan horse – pharmaceuticals….
John F. Kennedy, Jr
President Kennedy had a son while serving as president, John, Jr. who was only 3 when his father was assasinated.
Sadly in July of 1999 we we’re given the news that we lost his son JFK, Jr. in a plane crash just before he was to announce his run for senator in New York State against Hillary Clinton. As everyone loved him there was no question that he would have won that race.
(Now before anyone gets the idea this is a political post you are WRONG & I would advise you to continue reading in order to see all these connections & WHO all is behind the damage you have suffered because of these drugs, not only to you, but to our whole country & at this point the whole world. And as upsetting as you may find this information, whatever you do PLEASE remember that coming off too rapidly can prove to be the most dangerous thing you can do!)
But John had once made the following statement about the death of his father, “I will expose my father’s killers no matter who they are – even if I have to bring down the government.” … JFK, Jr.
John, Jr’s mother, it is rumored, thought Lyndon Johnson had something to do with her husband’s death. But who did John blame for his father’s death? He blamed George Bush, Sr., whose father worked closely with the Nazi’s, had extensive ties to Pharma & later headed the same group I always thought was behind his death, the CIA, who President Kennedy wanted to dissolve along with the Federal Reserve.
George Bush, Sr.
I do hope you noticed in the short video above that President Kennedy, like President Trump, also went after the press & had little good to say about them. And seemingly unbeknownst to most Americans JFK, Jr. & President Trump were friends. It also appears that what President Trump has been saying about going after the “Deep State” is no different than what President Kennedy was saying about going after this “secret group” behind our government, a “shadow government”.
So is President Trump working to fulfill the plan of President Kennedy as well as make good on the vow of his friend John, Jr. to bring those who killed his father to justice? It certainly appears to me that this is the case because every morning in the White House under the direction of our 45th President, the following prayer is given daily in the Oval Office:
“Rest in peace Mr. President (JFK), through your wisdom and strength, since your tragic death, Patriots have planned, installed, and by the grace of God, activated, the beam of LIGHT. We will forever remember your sacrifice. May you look down from above and continue to guide us as we ring the bell of FREEDOM and destroy those who wish to sacrifice our children, our way of life, and our world. We, the PEOPLE.”
President Kennedy’s Nephew Douglas Kennedy
While working for Fox News Douglas Kennedy did more reporting on the dangers of antidepressants than any other news reporter in the world. He understood the issues surrounding these drugs very well & worked hard to get the warning out about them. Sadly, as with all of us, family can be the most difficult to teach about these drugs, & Douglas lost a sister-in-law to a Zoloft-induced suicide, Robert Kennedy, Jr’s wife. Hopefully her children understand & as all children they retain their right to file a wrongful death suit for a parent until 2 years after they turn 21. And I just learned tonight of more of my own close family members in trouble on these drugs.
But here is one of several reports Douglas Kennedy has done on Fox which you can find more of on our YouTube Channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/icfda/videos
Connections to the Battle for Truth About These Drugs
Now onto the additional connections to this battle for truth about these drugs…
For those of you who have read my book you will already see many of those connections. And I will include below one section of the book that does go into that.
Where to begin? First there was Preston Bush, George Sr.’s father, & grandfather to our latest President Bush. He was a US Senator who helped to fund both sides of WWII, & had close enough ties to Hitler, I G Farben, eugenics, population control, & the Nazi’s that according to what we now know he should have been prosecuted for high crimes. Was involved in getting the European headquarters for the CIA set up in the IG Farben pharmaceutical head office!
If you click & listen to the following link from about the 42 minute mark to the end you will find that information. And during the CIAs’ Operation Paperclip, which apparently both Preston Bush & George Sr were involved with, 1600 Nazi scientists were brought to America to continue their research!
Here is additional information on both George, Sr’s, & George, Jr’s, Pharma ties…
“After leaving the CIA in 1977, Bush was made director of Eli Lilly by none other than Dan Quayle’s father and family, who owned controlling interest in the Lilly company and the Indianapolis Star. Dan Quayle later acted as go-between for drug kingpins, gun runners, and government officials in the Iran-Contra scandals.
“The entire Bush family was large stockholders in Lilly, Abbott, Bristol, and Pfizer, etc. After Bush’s disclosure of assets in 1979, it became public that Bush’s family still had a large interest in Pfizer and substantial amounts of stock in the other aforementioned drug companies.
“In fact, Bush actively lobbied illegally both within and without the Administration as Vice President in 1981 to permit drug companies to dump more unwanted, obsolete, or, especially, domestically-banned substances on unsuspecting Third World countries.
“While Vice President, Bush continued to illegally act on behalf of pharmaceutical companies by personally going to the IRS for special tax breaks for certain drug companies (e.g. Lilly) manufacturing in Puerto Rico.
“While Vice President, Bush continued to illegally act on behalf of pharmaceutical companies by personally going to the IRS for special tax breaks for certain drug companies (e.g. Lilly) manufacturing in Puerto Rico. In 1982, Vice President Bush was personally ordered to stop lobbying the IRS on behalf of the drug companies by the U.S. Supreme Court itself.”
George W. Bush
Apparently once George, Sr. became President he used different powers to assist his friends in the pharmaceutical industry. As Eli Lilly prepared to bring their first SSRI antidepressant to the market they needed a favor & knew who had vested interests to help them. So the current President Bush changed the laws at the FDA to allow for “Fast Track” approvals of pharmaceuticals allowing Prozac to be approved on only 5 & 6 week studies. And several years later as George, Jr became president he tacked on a policy to a bill to prevent lawsuits for damages against pharmaceuticals.
And to get the full picture behind the CIA & their interest in getting these drugs on the market after Congress banned their drug if choice for mind control you can find all that explained in the following post from that section of my book on these drugs, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare!
If this is indicative of the typical one week of arrests in a major city, can anyone else see what it is behind America’s crime wave? As much as anyone wants to cry about banning guns, this makes it far more than obvious that mind-altering substances, whether currently legal or currently illegal, are clearly the biggest cause of crime in America today! Click the link below to see these mug shots & tell me what you think….
These are mug shots from only one week’s worth of arrests in Phoenix, Arizona. Now after looking in their faces I want you to tell me just how many of these 75 individuals appear to be conscious enough to you to be able of forming “intent to commit” a crime … to intentionally commit a crime?
Serotonin – Key to Violence

‘IT’S HELL’ I’m A Celebrity’s Iain Lee reveals he feels suicidal as he withdraws from anti-depressants
Here we go again! This time in Chicago with about the strictest gun laws in the country. Another medical facility shooting…wonder if the percentage of workplace violence shootings are higher than the 60% in medical facilities they reported about four years ago? With 75% of doctors & nurses currently on antidepressants it should be higher.
This one is similar to the one in Kentucky a week or so ago as this one was trying to get into the pharmacy after killing a doctor, his ex-fiance, and the one in Kentucky was standing in line at the pharmacy. Wonder when they’re going to figure out that most violent crime is connected to drugs?!
And I wonder if anyone gave him an antidepressant to cope with her calling off their wedding just last month? If she was the one who made sure he was medicated for the depression he would have naturally suffered she should have come to our website to read this study first:
Link to Article & Video
This shooting did not completely grab my attention until I heard it happened in my old home area of Thousand Oaks/Newbury Park where I lived for a year just over the hill from Dean Martin. (I was on the wrong side of the hill.) But it is a really quiet, laid back area where these things do not happen, even in bars.
Ian David Long, Before Meds?
Ian David Long, After Meds?
The shooter Ian David Long, 28, was an ex-Marine who was honorably discharged in 2013. Curtis Kellogg, a friend who served with Long, said Long headed to Southern California to pursue a degree in sports medicine after his service in Afghanistan. And as this article does point out he had mental health issues – PTSD for which the military freely hands out antidepressants which CAUSE PTSD!
You can see in his face in these two pictures and in Heather’s pictures below the toll these drugs can take on someone. So relaxed before yet so very stressed and burned out after the cortisol levels (the stress hormone) are jacked up so high with an antidepressant (DOUBLED with only one dose!)
To see extensive video coverage of the shooting and latest updates you can go to this link to the Associated Press coverage on it:
My first thought upon hearing this news that this happened in Thousand Oaks, home of Heather Locklear, was “I hope it was not Heather going off the deep end yet again on her antidepressants!” She was arrested twice earlier this year for attacking officers and in another incident where she nearly bit off her boyfriend’s nose! No surprise with biting being such a common adverse reaction to antidepressants.
Heather Locklear pleads not guilty in her domestic violence arrest/officer attack. These drugs certainly do not help you win any beauty contest!!!

Elevated Serotonin is the Key to Violence
Everyone has heard that serotonin is this wonderful “happy” chemical we need to no longer be depressed or anxious while the research for decades before these drugs hit the market told us the exact opposite! Serotonin produces all kinds of mental issues, including depression, anxiety, suicide, psychosis, violent crime, etc.

Why is Such Important Safety Information
Kept From the Public?
An 18 year old student in Crimea, Russia, Vladislav Roslyakov, killed 19 of his college classmates & himself Wednesday, October 17. Below is whatc we know along with two hours total of raw footage taken of me by a Russian camera crew a decade ago for a documentary they did on these drugs in the hope it would prevent this from happening in their country.
What we know so far about this shooter/bomber:
1. Shooter was very shy, mother was a nurse & parents divorced:
“Most of what we know, so far, about Roslyakov comes from the tabloid Mash, which says he was a “shy young man who spoke to almost no one and who long ago deleted all his social media accounts.” Apparently, he also had an unhealthy interest in serial murderers. Roslyakov’s parents are reportedly divorced and he lives with his mother, who works as a nurse at a local oncology clinic.”
2. His mother was a nurse who worked on the victims & attempted suicide when told her son was the shooter. Was she on the same antidepressant her son was on? I cannot count the number of cases I have medical professionals and their family members involved in these tragedies and all on antidepressants! I have been making that statement for two decades.
In this video the Russian Times compared this attack to America’s Columbine massacre. And this was my comment on their video:
“I was called in as the main expert in the Columbine shooting. I would point out that the only thing you missed in comparing the two shootings was the “medications” the shooters were on. Eric Harris was on the antidepressant, Luvox, at the time of the shooting. His dose had been doubled two months before in spite of the fact that after only six weeks on Zoloft, the first similar antidepressant Eric was given, he complained of it giving him homicidal thoughts. Clearly the doctors thought the same because they took him off Zoloft. But then put him on the exact same type of drug, Luvox, although it had a different name, expecting it to have different results! Brilliant?! The world witnessed the fact that drug produced the same effect as the first antidepressant!
“Your shooter there was shy & quiet for which they often prescribe antidepressants. His mother was also a nurse who would have believed in using medications without hesitation. She too attempted suicide after the shooting. Was she on the same antidepressants her son? And what was he on? Those are critical questions that need to be answered.
“I did a long interview for a Russian news crew a decade ago for an hour long documentary they did hoping to prevent Russia from going through what we are going through here in the US. Obviously it did not get enough attention to prevent this horrific tragedy. PLEASE educate your viewers there before you end up with lists like this one of ours where 68 out of 70 shooters were all found to be taking antidepressants!!!”

The Conspiracy Show: Mass Shootings and Mind Altering Drugs
“Are money hungry Drug companies creating lone gun terrorists,
then trying to hide their complicity?”
September 16, 2018, with Richard Syrett, Toronto, Canada
Guest(s) Appearing on this Episode
Bio: Ann is the author or the first book ever written on the adverse effects of SSRI antidepressant medications & other drugs designed to increase serotonin. That book, The Prozac Pandora, a basic introduction to potential problems with this class of drugs, came out in 1991, just before the first FDA hearing on Prozac. By 1994 that had expanded into, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? The Rest of the Story, a large text on these drugs & the damaging effects of increasing serotonin, which had long been known in medical science as a “stress neuro-hormone.” The book was being ordered by the case by EMTs to hand out on calls after becoming alarmed by how often they were seeing these drugs in all the emergencies they were called out on. A pharmacy students were discoveringenough about these serotonergicdrugs after the book becoming required reading in their pharmacy class that one student even wrote a popular rap song to address it called “Get Off The Pharm!” That first edition was followed by a second edition in 2001 and a third edition on this Prozac family of serotonergic drugs in 2014 available only as an ebook on our drugawareness.org website & titled, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare!
Since 1992 Ann has testified as an expert witness in Prozac and other SSRI related court cases around the world. Some of the more high profile cases she has worked on would be the murder/suicide of comedian Phil Hartman and his wife Brynn, the Columbine & Red Lake School shootings, Andrea Yates – the Texas mother who drowned her five children, the Atlanta Day Trader, Princess Di’s death, the murder/suicide of the royal family of Nepal, Anna Nicole Smith’s son Daniel’s death, etc.
Ann Blake-Tracy will amaze you with documentation as to how often these drugs have lurked silently behind the scenes of major headlines worldwide!! To get an idea of the types of reactions & how often we are seeing these in the news go to www.drugawareness.org for breaking news cases and www.SSRIstories.NET for our database of thousands of articles on patients on these drugs and the adverse results appearing as headlines. These are cases which Ann Blake Tracy, along with many of our directors, over the years have been gathering since 1990. Then our Texas director, Rosie Meysenburg, along with her husband Gene, began to post the stories into an online database in 2006. With only a handful of individuals gathering the cases it should be clear that this shocking list is only the tip of this iceberg of horrifying antidepressant-induced nightmares!
The Conspiracy Show: Shooters and Drugs
Ann Blake-Tracy is the executive director of the International Coalition for Drug Awareness. She has has specialized since 1990 in adverse reactions to serotonergic medications as well as the new atypical antipsychotics. She has discovered that most lone wolf shooters have been medicated on some form of SSRI antidepressant. Can a possible side-effect be homicidal ideation in the client?

This is an EXCELLENT piece on healing foods. Interestingly these are the same foods I turned to 45 years ago to overcome the cancer that ravaged my body & threatened my life. What surprised me was to see the amazing clarity of mind I saw almost immediately. Obviously it helped me overcome the cancer since I am still here & have felt no need to see a doctor for any reason since that time. But it has also given me insight into healing from the damage caused by the use of these deadly drugs we call antidepressants.
If Johnathan Otto introducing this video understood more about antidepressants & benzodiazepines he would not try to make this an easier change in diet by allowing those damaged by these drugs to fudge on the strictness required for healing. If he understood the highly protein binding (98%) aspect of these drugs he would understand that to flush these drugs from the this strict change is required. I am especially concerned about the Lewy Body’s Dementia (large clumps of protein building up in the brain) suffered by Robin Williams on these drugs & the close connection of Lewy Body’s Dementia to the most deadly REM Sleep Disorder (RBD) when 86% of those being diagnosed with RBD are on antidepressants.
Until we have the answer to the following questions I believe it is best to stay on the side of caution & follow the wisdom shared about the diet shared by the following experts.
1. Does the high protein binding aspect of these drugs known to accumulate at a very high rate in brain tissue produce these large clumps of protein to build up in brain tissue?
2. And does this protein binding aspect of these drugs prevent the drugs from being flushed from the body & brain?
In this world of fake news and the non-existence of investigative reporting both Sarah Boseley and The Guardian have long been a breath of fresh air and deserve a medal for their reporting! The only problem with this one is that the research they are reporting on is three decades too late! But it is because of their efforts as opposed to the lack of efforts by others that I include their request at the end of this article for donations as they are independent in their reporting.
For two and a half decades I and the International Coalition For Drug Awareness which I head have been warning about the dangers of withdrawal with a streaming ribbon across the top of our web page (www.drugawareness.org) warning that abrupt or rapid withdrawal can prove to be more dangerous, disabling, and last far longer than a very slow, careful, gradual withdrawal. Most confusing is the fact that the worst of the withdrawal can be delayed six months or longer depending upon the length of time on antidepressants. And for those on the drugs for ten years or more the delay can be even longer. In 1999 I finally tired of repeating over & over & over again one patient at a time all the information on safe withdrawal & published an hour & a half long CD on safe withdrawal & withdrawal tips on easing withdrawal effects which has more informationabout these drugs than you can find in years of research! You can find that in a downloadable version for just under $5 at the following link:
The chapter in my book on these antidepressants, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare, discusses the amazing similarity of these serotonergic antidepressants to Phencyclidine (PCP, “Angel Dust),” a medication pulled from the market only a few years before Prozac was introduced in the US and a drug in the same family as Ketamine now being pushed for treatment of depression! So what is most interesting considering the information in this article about those on antidepressants not wanting to attempt withdrawal because it is so horrible is that is exactly the reason people reported not wanting to withdraw from Phencyclidine (PCP, “Angel Dust”)! Reading the reports of those on both drugs was almost identical with them even using the exact same words to describe their experience! Seems history is repeating itself once again….and ironically these are the drugs people being forced off the opioid pain killers are being given as a replacement in spite of the fact that patients on them have reported for decades that coming off an antidepressant is far more difficult that getting off opioids!
Another helpful place for those looking for support as they go through the withdrawal process is one of our many Facebook groups. To find one just type in the name of the drug you are withdrawing from followed by the phrase “Should Be Illegal” & you will find thousands of others going through the same things you are. For example “Prozac (Fluoxetine) Should Be Illegal”
Antidepressant withdrawal symptoms severe, says new report…
Existing guidance that symptoms are minimal leads to misdiagnosis and ‘harmful long-term prescribing’
Sarah Boseley Health editor
Tue 2 Oct 2018 11.23 EDT
‘The withdrawal effects if I forget to take my pill are severe shakes, suicidal thoughts, a feeling of too much caffeine in my brain, electric shocks, hallucinations, insane mood swings,’ said one patient in a study. Photograph: Steve Debenport/Getty
Half of all those taking antidepressants experience withdrawal problems when they try to give them up and for millions of people in England, these are severe, according to a new review of the evidence commissioned by MPs.
Guidance from the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (Nice), which says withdrawal symptoms “are usually mild and self-limiting over about one week” urgently needs to be changed, say the review authors.
Dr James Davies from the University of Roehampton and Prof John Read from the University of East London say the high rate of withdrawal symptoms may be part of the reason people are staying on the pills for longer. They cannot cope, so carry on taking the drugs, or their doctors assume they have relapsed and write another prescription.
The review was commissioned by the all-party parliamentary group for prescribed drug dependence and follows a long debate about the Nice guidance, which critics say is out of date.
Modern antidepressants of the SSRI class, such as Prozac (fluoxetine) and Seroxat (paroxetine), were marketed in part on their safety. Studies showed that when taken alone, overdoses were rarely fatal, which was not the case with benzodiazepines. Also, stopping the drugs was said to be easier.
This new review of the research reveals what many patients have known for years…Dr James Davies
There have been plenty of anecdotal accounts of withdrawal symptoms, which include dizziness, vertigo, nausea, insomnia, headaches, tiredness and difficulties concentrating. But the Nice guidance said in 2004 that the withdrawal symptoms were slight and short-lived and was re-adopted without further evidence in 2009. It is similar to the US guidance, which says symptoms usually resolve within one to two weeks.
The review, published in the journal Addictive Behaviors, focused on 14 studies of antidepressants that had relevant data on withdrawal symptoms. The studies, which were diverse, showed that between 27% and 86% of people suffered from them, with a weighted average of 56%.
Antidepressants are now some of the most commonly prescribed drugs in the UK and US, say the authors. “In the UK, usage has risen since 2000 by 170%, with over seven million adults (16% of the English adult population) being prescribed an antidepressant in England alone last year,” says the review.
About half of antidepressant users have been taking the pills for longer than two years. In England, that is 3.5 million people – 8% of the population. In the US, 13% of the population (37 million adults) were on them by 2011-2014, official data shows. Half have been taking them for five years or more.
“This new review of the research reveals what many patients have known for years – that withdrawal from antidepressants often causes severe, debilitating symptoms which can last for weeks, months or longer,” said Dr James Davies.
“Existing Nice guidelines fail to acknowledge how common withdrawal is and wrongly suggest that it usually resolves within one week. This leads many doctors to misdiagnose withdrawal symptoms, often as relapse, resulting in much unnecessary and harmful long-term prescribing.”
In addition to updating the existing evidence reviews, we will include new work on patient choice Nice
The review includes comments from some of the studies where antidepressant users were interviewed about their experiences of trying to wean themselves off the pills.
One spoke of “horrible dizzy spells and nausea whenever I lower my dose”. Another said: “The withdrawal effects if I forget to take my pill are severe shakes, suicidal thoughts, a feeling of too much caffeine in my brain, electric shocks, hallucinations, insane mood swings … kinda stuck on them now coz I’m too scared to come off it.”
Sir Oliver Letwin MP, chair of the parliamentary group, said: “This systematic review provides important new data on antidepressant withdrawal which will be considered by Public Health England as part of their current review into prescribed drug dependence. The data suggests that existing medical guidelines in this area should be urgently updated to reflect the fact that antidepressant withdrawal is much more common, severe and long-lasting than previously stated. Furthermore, we hope that other medical bodies will take note of this new research, and update their own guidance accordingly.”
Nice said it is looking again at its guidance. “In July 2018, the committee met and concluded that the current evidence base needs updating to include research from July 2016 onwards. Nice agrees,” said Paul Chrisp, director of the Centre for Guidelines at Nice. “It is important that the final recommendations are based on the most up-to-date evidence possible. In addition to updating the existing evidence reviews, we will include new work on patient choice and a focus on shared decision making.
“We hope the final guideline will allow people with depression to be offered the best treatments and reach joint decisions about their care that reflect their preferences and values.”
