My 2017 article on the Sackler family and the unfolding opioid disaster (“Opioids and the Crisis of the White Working Clas s”) emphasized the corruption of the academic and medical establishment:

As in The Culture of Critique, this was a top-down movement based ultimately on fake science created at the highest levels of the academic medical establishment, motivated by payoffs to a whole host of people ranging from the highest levels of the academic-medical establishment down to sales reps and general practitioner physicians.

Now Tucker Carlson has uncovered another angle intimately tied to our new Jewish elite: the American Enterprise Institute (AEI). The AEI figured prominently in my article “Neoconservatism as a Jewish Movement,” published in 2004:

Jewish intellectual and political movements also have typically had ready access to prestigious mainstream media outlets, and this is certainly true for the neocons. Most notable are the Wall Street Journal, Commentary, The Public Interest, Basic Books (book publishing), and the media empires of Conrad Black and Rupert Murdoch. Murdoch owns the Fox News Channel and the New York Post, and is the main source of funding for Bill Kristol’s Weekly Standard—all major neocon outlets.

A good example illustrating these connections is Richard Perle. Perle is listed as a Resident Fellow of the AEI, and he is on the boards of directors of the Jerusalem Post and the Hollinger Corporation, a media company controlled by Conrad Black. Hollinger owns major media properties in the US (Chicago Sun-Times), England (the Daily Telegraph), Israel (Jerusalem Post), and Canada (the National Post; fifty percent ownership with CanWest Global Communications, which is controlled by Israel Asper and his family; CanWest has aggressively clamped down on its journalists for any deviation from its strong pro-Israel editorial policies. Hollinger also owns dozens of smaller publications in the US, Canada, and England. All of these media outlets reflect the vigorously pro-Israel stance espoused by Perle. Perle has written op-ed columns for Hollinger newspapers as well as for the New York Times.

Neoconservatives such as Jonah Goldberg and David Frum also have a very large influence on National Review, formerly a bastion of traditional conservative thought in the US. Neocon think tanks such as the AEI have a great deal of cross-membership with Jewish activist organizations such as AIPAC, the main pro-Israel lobbying organization in Washington, and the Washington Institute for Near East Policy [which produces pro-Israel propaganda]. (When President George W. Bush addressed the AEI on Iraq policy, the event was fittingly held in the Albert Wohlstetter Conference Center.) A major goal of the AEI is to maintain a high profile as pundits in the mainstream media. A short list would include AEI fellow Michael Ledeen, who is extreme even among the neocons in his lust for war against all Muslim countries in the Middle East, is “resident scholar in the Freedom Chair at the AEI,” writes op-ed articles for The Scripps Howard News Service and the Wall Street Journal, and appears on the Fox News Channel. Michael Rubin, visiting scholar at AEI, writes for the New Republic (controlled by staunchly pro-Israel Martin Peretz), the New York Times, and the Daily Telegraph. Reuel Marc Gerecht, a resident fellow at the AEI and director of the Middle East Initiative at the Project for a New American Century [a neocon group], writes for the Weekly Standard and the New York Times. Another prominent AEI member is David Wurmser who formerly headed the Middle East Studies Program at the AEI until assuming a major role in providing intelligence disinformation in the lead up to the war in Iraq. His position at the AEI was funded by Irving Moscowitz, a wealthy supporter of the settler movement in Israel and neocon activism in the US.[2] At the AEI Wurmser wrote op-ed pieces for the Washington Times, the Weekly Standard, and the Wall Street Journal. His book, Tyranny’s Ally: America’s Failure to Defeat Saddam Hussein, advocated that the United States should use military force to achieve regime change in Iraq. The book was published by the AEI in 1999 with a Foreword by Richard Perle.

Given this history—and understanding the Sacklers’ modus operandi—I should not have been surprised that AEI has been involved in promoting false, Purdue-funded research that doubtless had a prominent role in creating the crisis. Here’s Tucker’s segment:

In my 2017 article I described how Purdue funded research that found that Oxycontin was not significantly addictive.

Purdue essentially created a very large community of people who benefited financially from prescribing opioids. They set up and funded organizations that lobbied for more aggressive treatment of pain by treatment with opioids. Millions were funneled into organizations like the American Pain Society and the American Academy of Pain Medicine and Purdue’s own advocacy group, Partners Against Pain, as well as to medical professionals willing to provide data supporting the movement. Purdue hired an army of sales reps to promote opioids to all medical personnel, from doctors to physician assistants. A consistent part of the pitch was to minimize addiction rates. Purdue claimed addiction rates were less than 1% by cherry picking studies that did not examine the effects of long-term use. Other studies often showed much higher rates, as high as 50%. This misrepresentation was at the root of the $600M judgement against Purdue obtained by the US government.

The AEI could have been included in this assessment It received $50,000/year from Purdue from 2003 “until recently”—~$800,000 total—pocket change for a family that walked away with at least $11 billion. The original “research” touting the non-addictive properties of Oxycontin and based on 38 subjects was performed by R. K. Portnoy of the Metropolitan Jewish Health System. But there were others:

Scott Fishman and Perry Fine [were] prominently associated with the American Pain Foundation which got 88% of its budget from Purdue and other pharmaceutical companies. Fine has been funded by at least a dozen drug companies and Fishman has had relationships with at least eight companies, including Purdue, for which he was a consultant, paid speaker and recipient of research support. They claim that all this financial remuneration did not affect their opinions. And if you believe that, you are an idiot.

As Tucker notes, in 2004 the New York Times published an article by AEI writer Sally Satel, presumably Jewish, opposing jail sentences for doctors who over-prescribed opioids after running it past a Purdue lobbyist. And in 2007 the Wall Street Journal, a major neocon media outlet, published another article by Satel in which she called Oxycontin a “godsend” and lamented that it not being prescribed enough.

Satel is intimately associated with the AEI as a Resident Fellow. She is typical of our new elite and its involvement in elite institutions and media. Wiki:

Sally L. Satel (born January 9, 1956) is an American psychiatrist based in Washington, D.C. She is a lecturer at Yale University School of Medicine, the W.H. Brady Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, and author.

She has continued writing on the topic with, e.g., an article in Politico from 2018 in which she argues that physician-prescribed opiates are not the problem:

I have studied multiple surveys and reviews of the data, which show that only a minority of people who are prescribed opioids for pain become addicted to them, and those who do become addicted and who die from painkiller overdoses tend to obtain these medications from sources other than their own physicians.

The two studies linked above do not actually support her conclusions. There is no reason to trust any of the conclusions of the first study. It reviewed 17 studies with “extremely heterogeneous results”—not surprising given that “all the present data derived from studies with weak designs, e.g. uncontrolled case series and cross-sectional surveys. These studies suffer from low-quality reporting, with little information on the characteristics of patients, type of opioids administered and route of administration.” One wonders how many of the studies were funded by drug companies like Purdue. This review only used studies with patients with chronic pain in supervised settings, and did not address opioid prescription in the public at large, especially for non-chronic pain. Recall that the entire focus of Purdue’s propaganda was to prescribe Oxycontin for non-chronic pain in order to widen the use of the drug. The previous practice of prescribing opioids only for serious chronic pain was labeled cruel. Hospitals were pressured to administer opioids for fear that they would have lower rankings after Purdue provided data to regulatory agencies, resulting in a “dramatic increase” in prescriptions. Moreover, neither study cited by Satel addressed the issue of people who had been prescribed opioids going to the black market for drugs like heroin after treatment.

The second concluded, contrary to her assertions, notes that

The extended prescription of opioids (>8 weeks) for the treatment of chronic pain has questionable benefits for individual patients and presents substantial public health risks. The risks of overdose and addiction from this prescribing practice — both among patients with chronic pain and the public at large — increase with higher doses (>100 MME), longer duration of prescribing, and perhaps the use of long-acting opioids. Despite these facts, a Medicaid study showed that more than 50% of opioid prescriptions were for doses higher than 90 MME and for periods of more than 6 months. Better results can be obtained by using the most contemporary guidelines for pain management.

Contemporary guidelines are much more restrictive, really a return to previous practice before Purdue began its promotional campaign. Other studies are quite clear that “Misuse or abuse of prescription drugs, including opioid-analgesic pain relievers, is responsible for much of the recent increase in drug-poisoning deaths” (here).

The entire episode is an excellent example of how our new elite works. I concluded in my paper on the opioid disaster:

The opioid phenomenon reflects aspects of Jewish activism in general. These are top-down movements that are well-funded, they have access to the most prestigious institutions of the society, and, because of this prestige, they are able to propagate fake science. In the case of the Jewish drive to enact the 1965 immigration law, pro-immigration committees were funded, fraudulent academic studies were created on the benefits of immigration, prominent people were recruited (like JFK, recruited to put his name on a book titled A Nation of Immigrants written by Myer Feldman and published by the ADL), positive articles about immigration appeared in the media, lobbyists and politicians were paid. The main fake scientists discussed in The Culture of Critique were the Boasians with their fake race science (utilized in the debates over the immigration law of 1965), psychoanalysis with its fake sex science, and the Frankfurt School with its fake theory that ethnocentric Whites have a psychiatric disorder resulting from poor parenting. Like the fake scientists who participated in promoting the opioid epidemic, these activists had access to prestigious academic institutions and, in the case of the Frankfurt School and other activist academic research in the 1950s and 1960s, their research was funded by the organized Jewish community, such as the American Jewish Committee, and promoted by Jewish academics.

Or consider the neoconservative infrastructure, with think tanks funded, prominent spokesmen at prestigious universities, and a very large media presence. Neocons can bet that if they are forced out of a job in the Departments of State or Defense that they will have many options to fall back on. Despite promoting disastrous policies, such as the war in Iraq, and despite their obvious ethnic loyalties to Israel, they are still a very powerful component of the U.S. foreign policy establishment.

Jews are an incredibly successful and influential group. We can’t win unless we understand that.

ORDER IT NOW

In my 2004 article I included AEI as part of the neoconservative infrastructure of our new elite. Now we know that the AEI—an exemplar of Conservatism Inc.—is deeply involved in the greatest public health crisis of our time. As many have noted, Conservatism Inc. has utterly failed to conserve anything of importance. The AEI, along with the mainstream Jewish community, favors the immigration tsunami which is displacing the traditional White majority of America. For example, I notice that an AEI writer, James Pethokoukis, takes seriously Bryan Caplan’s proposal for open borders, giving Caplan softball questions and never raising the interests of White America. Could there be a greater indictment of Conservatism Inc.?

States’ attorneys general and many other jurisdictions are suing not only Purdue Pharma, but also individual Sackler family members. The outcome, however, remains in doubt. The most recent development (November 6) is that a federal judge, Robert Drain of the Southern District of New York, has extended protection from lawsuits against Purdue. An issue was whether Richard Sackler himself was liable. The answer, of course, is a resounding yes, although his attorney claims that “was not involved in the marketing of opioid OxyContin.”

Sackler was a key figure in the development of Oxycontin being the moving force behind Purdue Pharma’s research around 1990 that pushed Oxycontin to replace MS contin that was about to have generic competition. Sackler also worked to enlist Russell Portenoy and J. David Haddox into working within the medical community to push a new narrative claiming that opioids were not highly addictive. In pushing Oxycontin through to FDA approval in 1995 Sackler managed to get the FDA to approve a claim that Oxycontin was less addictive than other pain killers, although no studies on how addictive it was or how likely it was to be abused had been conducted as part of the approval process. The addictive nature of opiates had been known for thousands of years.

Sackler became president in 1999. In 2001 he issued an email to employees of the company urging them to push a narrative that addiction to Oxycontin was caused by the “criminal” addicts who had the addiction, and not caused by anything in the drug itself. Sackler also urged pharmaceutical representatives to urge doctors to prescribe as high doses as possible to increase the company profits.

He was made co-chairman in 2003. Sackler was in charge of the research department that developed OxyContin. As president, he approved the targeted marketing schemes to promote sales of OxyContin to doctors, pharmacists, nurses, academics, and others. Shelby Sherman, an ex-Purdue sales rep, has called these marketing schemes “graft”.

In 2008, Sackler, with the apparent knowledge of Mortimer Sackler and Jonathan Sackler, made Purdue Pharma measure its “performance” in proportion to not only the number but also the strength of the doses it sold, despite allegedly knowing that sustained high doses of OxyContin risked serious side effects, including addiction. (Wiki)

The judicial system is a central part of our corrupt new elite, so I’ll be very surprised if any of the Sackler family give up much of their ill-gotten gains—much less spend the rest of their lives in prison. Even life in prison, the best that could possibly be hoped for, is far too lenient for a family that is ultimately responsible for over 200,000 deaths.

  1. Sally Satel, presumably Jewish,

    Don’t go presuming away like that. You may come across as paranoid.

    Anyway, you presumed right. From The New York Times:

    A Critic Takes On Psychiatric Dogma, Loudly
    By Erica Goode

    The product of a Jewish middle-class upbringing, she was the first in her family to go to college. Her parents were both Democrats, her father a graphic artist, her mother a homemaker who died of leukemia when Sally Satel was 18. An only child, she shared a three-room apartment in Queens with her parents and a parakeet — the only pet they would allow their animal-crazy daughter to keep in such cramped quarters.

  2. As Professor MacDonald surely knows, as well as tax farming, Jews controlled the supply of liquor to peasants in the Ukraine and adjacent parts of Eastern Europe right up to World War I. The Sacklers are working in a well-defined tradition. And the peasants are now white working class Americans.
    But at least Ukrainian peasants didn’t have to fight the Jews’ wars for them. After making the Middle East safe for Israel, your white working class veteran can be invalided out of service, prescribed Oxycontin and have his life expectancy severely reduced. Don’t say the Zionists didn’t appreciate your sacrifice for Israel!
    Despite all this, most Americans still support American troops in Syria and elsewhere in the Middle East. Such is the power of indoctrination. As you say:
    Jews are an incredibly successful and influential group. We can’t win unless we understand that.

    This is the first article of yours I have read — thank you. I look forward to more.

    Jewish and Christian pro-natality is skewed to the subset of their respective cohorts whose faith is most salient. Bracketing Christians, for a moment, the Jews you mentioned in this article– those involved with the cover-up and dissemination of Oxycontin — seem to belong to the leftist, non/low-reproducing subset. I assume this subset has been, or is being, absorbed into neo-liberalism, that is, losing it’s Jewish self-identification.

    But, is this assumption true? As Jews secularise and identify with left wing ideologies, do they stop thinking of themselves as Jews? This inquiring Christian mind wants to know! And as the number of adherents in this subset decline — reproductive dearth — will the remaining Jewish population re-identify itself with the sort of Judaism that isn’t neo-liberal but still pro-aliyah and pro-Israel?

    I guess I’m wondering how much of the behaviour noted in your article was motivated by a deep Jewish antipathy toward Christians v. a deep anti-Christian political ideology. In the left wing Jewish mind, have these two ways of thinking dovetailed? Or, has political ideology replaced religious self-identification?

    Secularism is a left-moving force, a force against, not for, faith. I’m not sure why this is the case — can you explain it? — but it seems that those who look at the world through a left wing political lens have walked away from religion. It may take a generation or two, but “progressive” churches seem to first abandon their Sunday Schools (why bother teaching the next generation when a political rally will do?) and then orthodox belief.

    … just a curious Christian.

    I like these stories, but Carlson is messing with some powerful people.

    One day, someone might have to tell him, “Forget it, Tuck. It’s DC-Town.”

  7. Tucker Carlson and Kevin MacDonald are both national treasures. I am surprised that Tucker has survived this long because you better believe that there is furious work being done behind the scenes to remove him from Fox and replace him with another braindead Hannity type.

  8. White people thought, “If we help Jews destroy Palestine, Jews might regard us as honorary Jews.” In fact, Jews came to regard whites as honorary Palestinians slated for White Nakba.

  9. @Thulean Friend

    Carlsen, despite what some people say, is definitely not controlled opposition. He is very careful in his choice of words because he knows one slip and he will be deplatformed and removed. His survival as an MSM presenter has been remarkable so far. Whether he can continue to perform his tightrope act remains to be seen.
    In Professor MacDonald’s case, myself and others have often been concerned about his continued physical existence. He has exposed very powerful interests, operated by some very ruthless people.
    May God continue to preserve him.

    Of course in a free country, drugs should not be held hostage to a visit to the doctors office (certainly for adults). This was basically the case at the beginning of the 20th century. one must understand that control is essential to get the utopia they dream of (for themselves).. It’s why free energy was passed on in favor of destructive oil.
    I have been taking two 50mg tramadol a day with little harm that I can see ( for a year). When I go a few days without it, I don’t suffer withdrawals. The drug itself is way tuned down whereas like kratom, there is no incentive to abuse them for more does not necessarily take you higher. Understand, I have free health care. I wouldn’t be getting anything if I had to pay 100 dollars to see the doctor that then entitles me to a two month prescription.

    lol white rural “core” americans get addicted to opioids and blame jews. have they not heard of individual responsibility?

    maybe white people are just prone to addiction amd making societies with jewish elites. just like blacks are low-IQ and prone to crime, europeans are prone to jew elevation.

    that is why I think the future is Han Chinese.

    easterners studied marx, and other thinkers- both western and eastern, and threw out the bad and kept the good. while westerners did the exact opposite.

    want some advice? move beyond hate and towards solutions. to limit jewish elite power, put a cap on wealth and create a culture of creation instead of consumption. like stereotypical westerners, you take the bad hitler did(racial hatred and hubris) and throw out the few good things he did (move away from semitic religions, construct a culture of national socialism, but not socialist enough).

    the malaise that plagues the western psyche is inability to self-criticize. instead of self-criticism whites end up with white guilt or feeling resentiment in their pathetic situation that they overcompensate and engage in over-the-top racial hubris and jingoism. this schema of the western psyche is of american origin and has infected europe. I beg europe to follow DeGaulle’s path and isolate the anglo and leave them to their own devices. the only cool and based and redpilled anglos are aussies, but unfortunately americanism has spread to them too.

    Russia’s sacred duty is to remove the american menace from the worls with their unique asymmetric hypersonic nuclear missiles. although it may martyr russia, it would be for the good of the world. I BEG YOU RUSSIA DESTROY THE UNITED STATES RIGHT NOW!!!

    Oxycontin is basically legalized drug trade, with the doctors as unwitting pushers and their patients as unwitting users. It is truly sickening that the Sackler family remains free and are living the high life off their $13 Billion fortune made through this mass poisoning of Americans.

    To further illustrate how thoroughly corrupt our elites have become, there is an Arthur Sackler Museum at Harvard. Activists have called for Harvard to strip his name from the bldg, to no avail. From the Harvard Crimson:
    https://www.thecrimson.com/article/2019/1/21/somerville-mayor-condemns-harvard-sackler-ties/

    The Sackler family has donated significant sums to Harvard and helped fund the Arthur M. Sackler Museum, which holds the University’s collection of Asian, Middle Eastern, and Mediterranean art.

    Though Arthur Sackler passed away nearly a decade before OxyContin came to market, many activists blame him for pioneering the aggressive marketing techniques that Purdue and other pharmaceutical giants would later employ to sell their addictive painkillers.

    Indeed, those very tactics — using throngs of sales representatives to promote opioids directly to doctors, nurses, and pharmacists — targeted Cambridge and surrounding communities in the years before the region saw a spike in overdose deaths, according to this week’s legal filing.

    The easiest way to make a quick buck is to sell sin, and Jews excel at this. In the Netherlands in the 1600s, Jews dominated the tobacco trade there after they were kicked out of Spain. They spiked the tobacco with fruit flavors to get the otherwise austere protestant Dutch men and women addicted, to the point where even the women had ugly black tarred teeth. With the fortune that they made, they built the most ostentatious homes near Amsterdam and flaunted their wealth to the Dutch, enticing their elites to ditch austerity and do the same. (Embarrassment of Riches by Simon Schama) It’s not hard to figure out why Netherlands today is the most decadent country in the EU, with legalized marijuana and prostitution long before the rest of Europe.

    In the US, Jewish gangs were every bit as nasty as the Italian mafia back in the 1920s. Jews dominated the bootlegging trade during prohibition, started the porn industry, turned Hollywood into a depraved child and women sex abuse ring, and dominate the gambling industry. They also own the drug trade, not just with opioid, I’m sure if we look into the legalized marijuana trade, majority will again be run by Jews. The biggest vaping company, JUUL, was founded by a Jew, and they flavor their e-cigarettes with fruit flavors to get kids hooked, sound familiar?

    I’m sure if you look into the casino industry supposedly owned by native american tribes, you’ll see plenty of Jewish involvement. Wouldn’t surprise me one bit if a Jew actually came up with the concept to give Indian tribes rights to run casinos in states where gambling is otherwise illegal, and that most of these casinos are actually run by Jews. Who are the gamblers? Mostly working class whites, like the opioid victims.

    Jews are the ultimate parasitic tribe, the spawn of Satan. Everything they touch turns to shite, like Wall Street, Hollywood, SV, DC, our media, academia, judiciary, healthcare industry. Their only purpose on this earth is to destroy everything in their path wherever they washed up, grab every penny they can and move on to a new host, repeat.

    In 1972 my student advisor at Brandeis in a course of a conversation mentioned that his parents were Polish and Russian Jews that immigrated to the states from Poland. He went on state that when he was growing up his parents and grandparents often would refer to Poles in the old country as naive, gullible and ignorant. That his folks recalled the old days in Poland when they were growing up they were encouraged to get the best of Poles by way of deceptions in trade and sales transactions at the markets. He leaned back in his chair and asked me if the Poles were that naive, gullible and ignorant as his folks made them out to be in the old country? I did not know what to make of this. That is what was his aim with this question? Was he trying to say that I was stupid, was it to humiliate me, to put me down for being a Pole or was I supposed to reply as to agree or not disagree with his folks characterization of Poles as being stupid. I side stepped the question and did not answer his question. I pretended that I did not hear his question. I was 18 years old and was more interested in getting an education and did not want to get on his bad side.
    Now 47 years forward I have come to the conclusion that the Jewish characterization of Poles as being stupid indeed but also would like to add that the Americans, the British, the French, the Germans, the Italians and all of Christianity etc as being stupid as well they have not seemed to learn from time immortal past experiences of repeatedly giving the Jews so many chances to live among them so as to become the Jews victims. What will it take for the Non-Jews to stop bashing their heads against the wall that they thinks that the Jews will change their evil parasite when they are permitted to live among them this one time?

  21. The weak point of this article is that only two links are established between Purdue and the American Enterprise Institute: the donations and three articles written by a woman who — among other things — is associated with the Institute.

    The Sacklers have made donations to a dizzying array of causes and institutions; see the New Yorker’s piece on this and the Oxycontin connection (https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2017/10/30/the-family-that-built-an-empire-of-pain ).

    That they’ve given $800,000 to the American Enterprise Institution is hardly surprising; they’ve apparently given money to everybody. On the other hand, that one writer associated with them — who is also a psychiatrist and has lectured at the Yale School of Medicine — has written three articles defending Oxycontin is hardly damning. Oxycontin has been a big deal. It’shardly surprising that someone somehow connected with the American Enterprise Institute has written about it; and it would be typical of that organization that the pieces would defend it.

    I’ve little use for either the Sacklers or the American Enterprise Institute. I also don’t know what Tucker Carlson had to add to the above. But the smoking gun, this ain’t. One relatively modest donation and three articles by one writer aren’t sufficient grounds for conviction. The Sacklers and the American Enterprise Institute both deserve to burn in hell; but each on their own merits, not because of the rather weak links between the two discussed here.

    I believe that there was an orchestrated “Eugenics” type effort to remove certain people from society, but many of these people were simply Eugenicized for the purposes of theft. I am convinced of this because Physicians addicted most of today’s and yesterday’s deceased heroin addicts. After physicians suddenly cut people off of a highly addictive substance, many turned to heroin.

    We have been in Afghanistan for the Third Opium War, since the Taliban burnt the poppy fields down for religious ideology, the military tried to overthrow the Taliban. The military regrew poppy fields and is guarding them at gunpoint, as reported a few years ago by Pepe Escobar in Strategic Culture Foundation.

    Soboxone which is used to “cure” opiod addiction is even more addictive than the opioids, I have been told. I have heard this from many people. Don’t expect anyone from the Medical Community to admit it though.

    I doubt that there is an American who has not known or been close to a victim of this evil epidemic.
    The governments that are suing Perdue, Walgreens, and other manufacturers have suffered no loss. The victims and their families have, who stand nothing to gain from this government profiteering off of the suffering of millions when loved ones are added to the addicts tally.

    This is just business as usual for the psychopaths.

    I can understand people taking opioids after surgery or a painful injury temporarily, but not for arthritus, chronic back pain, fibromyalgia, nueropathy, or other chronic conditions which they had frequently been prescribed for.

    Also, after people became addicted, they would take a whole one, and cut one in half since oxycontin is a time release substance, effectively doubling the strength.

    We also have 500,000 missing persons in America.

    This is a murder spree!!!

    Trump to sign order to interpret Judaism as a nationality

    https://www.cnn.com/2019/12/10/politics/trump-order-judaism-nationality/index.html

    (CNN)President Donald Trump will sign an executive order on Wednesday to interpret Judaism as a nationality and not just a religion, a move that the Trump administration believes will fight what they perceive as anti-Semitism on college campuses, a White House official said.
    It’s an order that would allow Trump to take further steps to combat anti-Israel sentiments and divestment movements on college campuses by requiring colleges and universities to treat those movements as discriminatory in order to keep their funding.

    The move would trigger a portion of the federal Civil Rights Act of 1964 that requires educational institutions receiving federal funding to not discriminate based on national origin, according to senior administration officials. The Department of Education can withhold federal funding from any college or educational program that discriminates based on race, color or national origin, according to the Civil Rights Act.

    Jared Kushner, the President’s son-in-law and a senior White House adviser, pushed for the move, according to the Times.
    The definition of anti-Semitism will be adopted from the State Department, whose definition was originally formulated by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance, the senior administration officials said”

    In regard to your comment on personal responsibility:

    The ability to take personal responsibility depends on one’s knowledge of the action. Hopefully, one has that knowledge at the beginning. Many of the people addicted to this stuff were first prescribed this by doctors–doctors who told them, as they told a close relative of mine–that the drug had only minimal addiction potential–based on those flawed Purdue-funded studies–and that it would keep him free of disabling pain.

    In other words, this relative thought he was being responsible by a. going to a doctor, b. taking what he thought was a safe painkiller, c. controlling his pain so that he could work and be a *responsible* father.

    He ended up brutally addicted.

    Modern man now has such powerful, mind-bending drugs that they alter the brain in ways that make it far more difficult to assume personal responsibility. As we learn more about neuroscience and the way the brain works, we may have to rethink our ideas about free will and related concepts.

    Try a thought experiment: suppose you were drugged against your will and without your consent–like some Americans in the government’s LSD experiment–and ended up addicted. Would you really benefit from a lecture on assuming l responsibility?

    And no, I am not and have never been an addict.

    – The issue for me is:
    Did the manufacturers really & truly tell doctors that oxycontin was not addictive? Which would be truly odd since all opiates are addictive, some more than others of course. To be fair, some facts:

    – Prescriptions for opioids have decreased greatly since 2013.
    – The Oxycontin formula was changed by Purdue years ago, making it very difficult to inject as was done previously.
    – Those with prescriptions are generally NOT the ones overdosing, those that buy drugs on the street are.
    – Yes, Oxycontin has a street value to those who sell their Rx, but that accounts for a small percentage vs. what is alleged in the tabloid press.
    – Most opioid abusers are not actually using Oxycontin, but are using illicit street drugs fentanyl & heroin which are then conflated with Oxycontin & other less strong opiate prescriptions because there is now a huge ‘law enforcement’ witch hunt which profits big time from increased funding for the bogus claims of massive prescription drug abuse.
    – Oxycontin is very beneficial to those with serious pain. Yes, such serious pain does exist.

    – As for drugs in general, people obviously want drugs and drugs they will get. The profits are immense, just ask the cartels.
    – Does anyone know someone who wants drugs and cannot find them?

  65. Stan says:

    The truth lies buried in the family line of David Sassoon, “The Rothschilds of The Far East,” and their monopoly over the opium trade.

    Britain won Hong Kong by launching the opium Wars to give the Sassoons exclusive rights to drug an entire nation!

    David Sassoon was born in Baghdad in 1792. His father, Saleh Sassoon, was a wealthy banker and the treasurer to Ahmet Pasha, the governor of Baghdad. (Thus making him the “court Jew” – a highly influential position.)

    In 1829 Ahmet was overthrown due to corruption and the Sassoon family fled to Bombay, India. This was the strategic trade route to interior India and the gateway to the Far East. In a brief time the British government granted Sassoon “monopoly rights” to all manufacture of cotton goods, silk and most important of all – Opium – then the most addictive drug in the world!

    The Jewish Encyclopedia of 1905, states that Sassoon expanded his opium trade into China and Japan. He placed his eight sons in charge of the various major opium exchanges in China.

    According to the 1944 Jewish Encyclopedia: “He employed only Jews in his business, and wherever he sent them he built synagogues and schools for them. He imported whole families of fellow Jews. . . and put them to work.”

    Sassoon’s sons were busy pushing this mind-destroying drug in Canton, China. Between 1830 – 1831 they trafficked 18,956 chests of opium earning millions of dollars. Part of the profits went to Queen Victoria and the British government. In the year 1836 the trade increased to over 30,000 chests and drug addiction in coastal cities became endemic.

    In 1839, the Manchu Emperor ordered that it be stopped. He named the Commissioner of Canton, Lin Tse-hsu, to lead a campaign against opium. Lin seized 2,000 chests of Sassoon opium and threw it into the river. An outraged David Sassoon demanded that Great Britain retaliate. Thus, the Opium Wars began with the British Army fighting as mercenaries of the Sassoons. They attacked cities and blockaded ports. The Chinese Army, decimated by 10 years of rampant opium addiction, proved no match for the British Army.

    The war ended in 1842 with the signing of “The Treaty of Nanking.” This included provisions especially designed to guarantee the Sassoons the right to enslave an entire population with opium. The “peace treaty” included these provisions: “1) Full legalization of the opium trade in China, 2) compensation from the opium stockpiles confiscated by Lin of 2 million pounds, 3) territorial sovereignty for the British Crown over several designated offshore islands.

    Sassoon’s Use British Army to Drug An Entire Nation

    British Prime Minister Palmerston wrote Crown Commissioner Captain Charles Elliot that the treaty didn’t go far enough. He said it should have been rejected out of hand because: “After all, our naval power is so strong that we can tell the Emperor what we mean to hold rather than what he would cede. We must demand the admission of opium into interior China as an article of lawful commerce and increase the indemnity payments and British access to several additional Chinese ports.” Thus, China not only had to pay Sassoon the cost of his dumped opium but reimburse England an unheard sum of 21 million pounds for the cost of the war!

    This gave the Sassoon’s monopoly rights to distribute opium in port cities. However, even this was not good enough and Sassoon demanded the right to sell opium throughout the nation. The Manchus resisted and the British Army again attacked in the “Second Opium War fought 1858 – 1860. Palmerston declared that all of interior China must be open for uninterrupted opium traffic. The British suffered a defeat at the Taku Forts in June 1859 when sailors, ordered to seize the forts, were run aground in the mud-choked harbor. Several hundred were killed or captured. An enraged Palmerston said: “We shall teach such a lesson to these perfidious hordes that the name of Europe will hereeafter be a passport of fear.”

    In October, the British besieged Peking. When the city fell, British commander Lord Elgin, ordered the temples and other sacred shrines in the city sacked and burned to the ground as a show of Britain’s absolute comtempt for the Chinese. In the new “Peace Treaty” of Oct.25, 1860, the British were assigned rights to vastly expanded opium trade covering seven-eights of China, which brought in over 20 million pounds in 1864 alone. In that year, the Sassoons imported 58,681 chests of opium and by 1880 it had skyrocketed to 105,508 chests making the Sassoons the richest Jews in the world. England was given the Hong Kong peninsula as a colony and large sections of Amoy, Canton, Foochow, Ningpo and Shanghai. The Sassoons were now licensing opium dens in each British occupied area with large fees being collected by their Jewish agents. Sassoon would not allow any other race to engage in “the Jews’ business.”

    However, the British government would not allow any opium to be imported into Europe! Sassoon “Monopoly Rights” Wrecked Lancashire – England’s Textile Industry – Made Roosevelt Wealthy.

    Sir Albert Sassoon, the eldest of David Sassoon’s sons took over the family “business” empire. He constructed huge textile mills in Bombay to pay slave labor wages. This expansion continued after World War One and ended up putting mills in Lancashire, England out of business with thousands losing their jobs. This did not stop Queen Victoria from having Albert knighted in 1872.

    Solomon Sassoon moved to Hong Kong and ran the family business there until his death in 1894. Later, the entire family moved to England because with modern communications they could operate their financial empire from their luxurious estates in London. They socialized with royalty and Edward Albert. Sassoon married Aline Caroline de Rothschild in 1887 which linked their fortune with that of the Rothschilds. The Queen also had Edward knighted. All 14 of the grandsons of David Sassoon were made officers during World War One and thus most were able to avoid combat.

    Franklin D. Roosevelt’s fortune was inherited from his maternal grandfather Warren Delano. In 1830 he was a senior partner of Russell & Company. It was their merchant fleet which carried Sassoon’s opium to China and returned with tea.

    Warren Delano moved to Newburgh, N.Y. In 1851 his daughter Sara married a well born neighbor, James Roosevelt – the father of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. He always knew the origin of the family fortune but refused to discuss it.

    The Sassoon opium trade brought death and destruction to millions and still plagues Asia to this day. Their company was totally operated by Jews ONLY! The corrupt British monarchy honored them with privilege and knighthood – to the disgrace of the Crown! To this day the Sassoons are in the history books as “great developers” of India but the source of their vast wealth is never mentioned!

    I wrote a post on my blog stating Jews can’t do the math anymore…according to their anti-Christ Talmud, when their (anti-Christ) “ha Mossiach” comes to sit on the throne of the “third temple in Jerusalem” there will be “800 gentile slaves per Jew”(though some say 2,800 gentile slaves per Jew!). For that to happen, there would have to be a MINIMUM of 16 billion gentiles on Earth for the (likely) Jewish population of 20 million (more or less…there are roughly 20 million Jews on Earth today). If the number is 2800 gentile slaves per Jew, that means 56 BILLION gentiles would have to be on Earth! Like that’s ever going to happen! (and another thing…try getting click-speaking African Bushmen to be a “slave” to Jews when they’ll have no idea what this “master” Jew wants them to do!)

    @Beth,
    I am truly sympathetic to your suffering, but as you are aware, opioids are extremely addictive.

    Pain is a withdrawl symptom of opioid addiction, which is one more reason that opioids should not be prescribed for chronic pain, since they cause pain, and are addictive, requiring increasing the dosage.

    Moderate excercise, particularly swimming is usually the best prescription for chronic pain. It is not a quick fix. Strengthenning back muscles will more often than not reduce back pain.

    Exorcizing also helps fibromalgia victims.

    Being overweight will increase chronic pain because it places more stress on the body.

    We also have over twice the population we had then, and a fraction of the middle class wage blue collar jobs we had during that era.

    When opioid overdose has become the leading cause of death for people under 50, which is unnatural as hell, it is hard to see the absolute population size as a factor — the economic desperation of throwaway Americans certainly plays a role.

    In the last dozen years not one cop or drug agent has seen anyone die of a prescription painkiller.

    I don’t see how it is possible to make such a definitive statement — although it is no doubt true that prescription oxycontin was the ‘gateway opioid’ that led to widespread addiction, whereas now the majority of overdose deaths are due to other drugs like fentanyl.

    The opioid crisis has many aspects (including an element of personal responsibility); most reasonable people know this — some you’ve mentioned, some I also mention, some are covered in the article (e.g. irresponsible greed of drugmakers and distributors) — another might be the fine line for many patients between pain management and addiction.

    I labeled your comment (#25) with ‘Troll’ because I think it’s really crass to downplay the opioid abuse and overdose crisis in any way.

    With millions of Americans addicted to opioids and cycling in a life of poverty as income inequality is the widest in the nation’s history, their only hope for the next fix is to steal merchandise from retailers for quick cash to fund their addiction.

    ‘…Perhaps there is some basis to this, all groups operate on different intellectual levels with Jews by far operating on the highest, the IQ difference between Jews and Whites in America is nearly the same as the IQ difference between Whites and Blacks.’

    Meh. I’d call that kind of a half truth.

    First off, whatever the group averages are, it still comes down to individuals. The intellectual relationship between certain white gentiles on this site and certain Jews is roughly comparable to that between a human being and a barking dog. We have some seriously limited Jews around here — whatever the average of their group.

    Second, the cited average for Jews keeps going up over time — methinks Jewish chauvinists cherry pick the results they prefer. Ashkenazi (not all Jews) seem to be about nine IQ points higher than the overall average. Non-Ashkenazi Jews aren’t any brighter than anyone else, apparently.

    Third, no one ever denied that IQ is partially determined by environment…so that nine point difference would be only partially genetic. Folks like Aaron are squeezing every bit of potential out of those brain cells, while my mechanic neighbor doesn’t worry about it too much — just keeps making reasonably intelligent choices. If Aaron tested at 114 and Ian at 109, I wouldn’t see that as evidence of much of anything at all.

    Fourth, and finally, the ‘black’ average in the US is the average for a population with a great deal of white DNA. The average for your genuine, full-blooded, out-of-Africa black is about seventy — a thirty point gap is a lot more significant than a nine point gap, and the difference only becomes larger if we allow five points or so for cultural factors.

    …and you can see all this if you think about personal experience. Yes, the Zionists around here — like all Zionists — are the worst of Jewry, but in general, Jews you encounter will on average be perceptibly brighter than white gentiles. Partly, that’s because so many are desperate to impress you with their intelligence, but it’s also partly genuinely the case. However, the difference isn’t overwhelming.

    Blacks on the other hand…Jesus. People think the selected mulattoes they meet who have been put on the magic escalator and are now interacting with whites as bank loan officers and such are the average.

    Oh no…oh no. It’s surreal how stupid some are. You’d equate the difference between Jews and White gentiles to that between white gentiles and black gentiles. I’d say it’s more like the difference between Beverly Hills and Bel Air on the one hand, and between Bel Air and Lagos on the other.

    So says Jews.

    Dismissing the intellectual differences between European Gentiles and (Ashkenazi) Jews by saying the people who bring forth such information are Jew is like dismissing intellectual differences between Whites and Blacks because all the reseaerchers are White. Come to think of it, British Gentile Richard Lynn wrote an entire book dedicated to (Ashkenazi) Jewish intelligence.

    Not true, no proof.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ashkenazi_Jewish_intelligence#Evidence_for_a_group_difference_in_intelligence

    This subheading of the article lets you find the sources for the studies that show mean Ashkenazi Jewish IQ is higher than European Gentiles, estimate range from 107 (about the same as the smartest Asians) to 115 (one standard deviation above European gentiles) The authors of these reports seem to have Gentile surnames like Cochran, Lynn,Entine, Murray etc.

    That must be why Israel scores in the mediocre range for IQs by country.

    Not all Israelis are Ashkenazi Jews, most are Sephardic Jews who are basically Arabs and then you have the Palestinians. Out of a population of 9.1 million, only 2.8 million are Ashkenazi Jews i.e. a proportion of 0.31. The average IQ of Israel according to Global Bell Curve is 94, letting ‘X’ be Ashkenazi Jewish IQ and letting the genetic Arab IQ to be 85 (similar to the likes of Jordan, Egypt, Syria etc) we can solve for ‘X’ as follows…

    0.31*X + 0.69*(85) = 94

    X = [94 – 0.69*(85)]/0.31

    X = 114

    Which is in line with the aforementioned studies. A lot of White boys have been devestated by this knowledge after investing their faith so heavily in IQ, allowing East Asians to be smarter than them was the political price to pay for being smarter than Blacks and Mexicans, but the overwhelming evidence of Jewish intellectual superiority is too much for their egos.

    I know your reply to me (if you even bother) will resemble that of a SJW science-denier, race-denier Communist (and all the other epithets Whitebois heap upon thos disputing IQ studies) I expect things like “muh selection bias”, “muh small samples” and somethng you have already used “muh ideologically biased researchers”.

You are only obfuscating this fact by making an issue out of something that Dr. MacDonald said that was correct. If more “normies” are taking note of the JQ, it is due to the likes of Dr. MacDonald, a serious academic that does not say things without reason, and not his [Jewish] critics that tried to destroy his career years ago already, just as they have ruined the careers and personal lives of other serious people like historian David Irving and any one else that dares criticize them.

    You have helped to divert attention away from the point of Dr. MacDonald’s article, Jewish cooperation in two major organizations to advance Jewish interests. A major Jewish corporation that is criminally corrupt was protected by a heavily Jewish influenced think tank that was paid to write good propaganda for them, with Jewish writers like Sally Satel.

    One only needs to read the wikipedia of numerous Jewish people to read that they are “secular Jews.” I wonder what is a secular Christian? A secular Muslim? Both these things cannot be, but yet a secular Jews are real, and numerous.

    Judaism is a tribal ideology that functions as as a social marker. It allows inclusion into an international religious clan and citizenship into one particular country (Israel). This is unique in all the world.

    Central to Judaism are ancestry and DNA–not religious belief–since millions of Jews are irreligious. What unites them all however is Jewish exceptionalism, Jewish unity and Jewish power.

    Many strongly-self-identified Jews (including millions of Jews who otherwise ’embrace’ liberalism and eschew racism) see the world divided into two categories: Jews v. non-Jews.

    Secredly, many Jews–even the ‘secular’ one–believe that the Jewish people are endowed with not only innate superiority, but a pre-ordained license to rule others. Jewish activism has mobilized these values into an earthly political commitment: the rise, expansion, and triumph of Zionism.

    In most any other political realm, these race-oriented demarcations, tendencies towards hyper-militancy and tribal chauvinism, would be seen for what they are: a predatory caste system with all the political baggage that comes with it.

    Yet Jews are largely exempt from any stigma connected to racism since they are allowed to hide behind the protective wall of religiosity. But don’t be fooled. A Jewish ‘atheist’ is just as “Jewish’ as any rabbi. By deception they rule.

    Ancient myths involving God-given miracles and modern myths involving undue persecution and suffering amplify Jewish identity and solidarity. The Holocaust yarn is the latest chapter in the oddball encyclopedia.

    Whether they are ‘secular’ or religious, Jews remain comfortable with the notion that the Jewish people are uniquely special, uniquely threatened, and uniquely gifted. But don’t you ordinary, white folks think this way. That’s ‘white supremacism’!

    Big deal. As a plague virus adapts against attempts to get rid of it via mutation, Jewry has learned the age old art of adapting to its host societies via its chameleon like abilities of mimicry and insinuation. When safely ensconced, it goes about the task of the corruption and looting of its host societies.

    Jewry has not survived and thrived on its own merits, which are scarce if they exist at all. Keep in mind that the Jews- pretty much up until the time of the French Revolution- existed due to the forbearance and tolerance of the Christian gentiles. As a people, the Jews made virtually zero contributions to western Christian culture and civilization until the late eighteenth century, when the more sophisticated German Jews began to assimilate to the greater Christian society.

    However, the Jews who have done this have generally done so as part of larger gentile communities.

    I once calculated that for Israel, yes — the number of Nobels was in excess of what it would have been for an average gentile community of the same size, but it was one fiftieth of what the rate for the Jewish communities of Germany and the US would suggest it should have been.

    For whatever reason, Jews excel as a minority in gentile communities, but on their own, they sag. And they don’t just sag a little.

Just looking at the hysterical blabbering about hundreds of thousands of white opoid deaths suggests its wildly overblown. Surely this is a task for the supermen at Unz.com to tackle? What are the actual facts about the opoid issue? Is it another case of madness of crowds and media beatup?

    After all, it’s just whites dying — and trailer trash at that.

    If this death toll were suddenly occurring among some group it’s fashionable to care about, it’d be a different matter.

    That’s one of the salient points I see. Another is that it was perfectly obvious something was going wrong. Oxycontin prescriptions were multiplying, and Okies from Wescogee were dropping like flies. No one gave a shit. It’s not as if it were dem poor black fo’s or something.

    Hey, ‘people’ were making money off it. right? God forbid interfering. After all, there’s no work for the victims anymore anyway.

    To my mind, it doesn’t really matter whether the victims should have had more moral fiber or not. The fact is that they didn’t, and if they’re just dying, one way or another something is very wrong.

    So no, I don’t think we should just move along. We should all face a set of rather unpleasant facts about who we’re becoming, and decide what to do about that.

    “The hardest-hit communities can be found in the US states of West Virginia, Ohio, Kentucky and New Hampshire. ‘They’re communities where there is a problem of under-employment; there is a problem of concentration of poverty,’ says Magdalena Cerdá, an epidemiologist at NYU Langone Health. The term ‘deaths of despair’ has arisen to describe the suicides and opioid-overdose deaths of white people in parts of the United States that have been affected by de-industrialization and economic decline.”

    I hope whites remember the druggy years of 1990-2020 in the future. Books should be written and memories preserved for future generations. First it was our parents getting scripts for valium in the 1980s to help them relax and not be anxious. Then it was xanax and soma to single moms in the 1990s to help them relax and sleep, and ritalin/adderral for energetic boys so they’d act like girls in class (which could convieniently be resold as amphetamines on the street to junkies). Then in the late 1990s it was the heroin-in-a-pill pain medications that were taken away, sending the pill addicts to heroin-peddling-drug dealers working for various international cartels.

    This was “on purpose” folks. It didnt just happen.
    No real friend will ever try to get you into drug use. This trend had elite fingerprints all over it. Anybody remember that year or two of legal “bath salts” (synthetic cocaine and opiate-like concoctions) that were legal for about a year or so around 2000? How many kids got that cheap first taste of legal drugs, and decided that they liked them, only to develop drug problems later? Anybody think that was some sort of organic phenomenon? Me neither.

    Whites have the public education damaged by cultural marxism and Section 8 bus-in hoodlum kids, get dope dangled in front of them by big-pharma/foreigner doctors-who-hate-them (really, what sane nation would entrust its health care to foreign doctors?), have their jobs outsourced to China, and cheaper labor market competition by the highest legal immigration rates in the world/ and lax enforcement of illegal immigration.

    Right. The meth/narcotic/benzo epidemic hit the more hopeless parts of the Rustbelt decades ago, and it counted as a “suicide epidemic” before G. W. Bush left town. That part is old but continuing news.

    They keep saying the economy never bounced back from ’08 but for the working class it never really survived outsourcing industry and the inbound “migrants” the cheap labor lobby keeps sluicing in.

    Not doubting the Sackers (etc) are lice. But there’s an agenda behind the hysteria.

    In the States, since the end of WWII, “scaring the hell out of the American people” has been the agenda. Every few years they just change the details. The hysteria remains.

    And the vast carnage caused by Purdue’s corrupt research and the Sakler family’s deceptive marketing reminds me of Albert Lasker, the guy who came up with the advertising campaign that virtually overnight broke the taboo against American women smoking tobacco. This, we now know, led to the deaths of not hundreds of thousands, but millions.

    Maybe we need an institution to award prizes named after these historic crimes against society. Like:
    – The Lasker Belt for the most fatal advertising
    – The Sakler Rod for the most corrupt scientific research
    and of course
    – The Bernie Madoff Crown for the most destructive financial ponzi scheme.

  145. Franz says:
    @Pegasus

    Interesting, what is the profile of the average sucide victim?

    I’m a stone’s throw from Lake Erie and it’s all over the map.

    Oxycontin (by itself) has counted for zero deaths; but when getting them was easy it killed about a half dozen “mixers” which are the career junkies who mix it with the stuff they shoot up. There are actually not many of them in this area; there’s not enough stuff to steal to support their habits anyway.

    The train death, last one, was ex-military in his 40s who had a bad marriage and perhaps PTSD. Thing is, the earlier ones were somewhat older guys, usually mid-50s, which makes sense. Amtrack was still considered a fun thing when they were younger and they’d be very clear what many tons of steel moving real fast can do. Get liquored up and run out in front of one and you won’t feel a thing.

    The younger ones seem to prefer substances, with aspirin and alcohol an option more often than I would have thought; that was usually considered the old folks way out. There’s some pain to it but not for very long.

    I haven’t got the numbers but the situation works like this: Older guys, in this county, are blue collar guys, equipment operators, several small business owners who never got the wind up after the work left town. A big cause was a local steel company was bought out and the new owners snapped up the pension fund as assets. The Supreme Court ruled during the Reagan years that pension funds are assets that can be stripped if the new owners so choose. They did choose, and some fellows with 30 years and more with the company had their pensions looted. Of course when this happens to a working man, it’s not considerd looting.

    The younger people have more substance issues, but many are in that “gig rut” after college and can’t pay their loans back with anything available. One fellow one town over was barely in his twenties and shocked all of us when he did a “suicide by cop”, He called the police on his cell phone and said there was someone in the neighborhood with a gun. Three vehicles converged shortly, and saw a young man pointing a gun at them. After killing him with something like 15 shots, they found out it was a toy gun painted black and they traced the call to the phone in his pocket.

    “Suicide by cop” is a Reagan era term, from when the monster steel cuts (and allied industries) threw hundreds of thousands out with amazing speed. It happened a lot then, lately, not so much.

    I’m honestly glad I don’t have that much more information. But this is a structural issue. Take away the drugs, alcohol, the works, and desperate people will still find ways to check out. And they are. Every day.

    @eah

    I labeled your comment (#25) with ‘Troll’ because I think it’s really crass to downplay the opioid abuse and overdose crisis in any way.

    I saw that but I must disagree. Because:

    1. There already was a suicide epidemic but it was masked by the number of ways people can use the Final Exit. Since white males were ground zero during the massive deindustrialization era, it’s no great shock the were killing themselves. Lose a middle class earning, then your heath, or family, or house, or all of it, and it don’t leave much. Especially with a university/media axis telling you that you’ve got “privilege” and that migrants and minorities are the real ones needing sympathy.

    2. Too few people are doing the mind experiment: What if the DEA, FDA, and CDC actually believed their own narrative?

    Here’s what: Oxycontin would have been off the market no later than 2010. I can attest that as of the first half of this year, it was still being used and therefore still being sold. This makes zero sense.

    If they believed their own narrative, the above agencies would have punished the marketing methods of the company at fault. Since Purdue didn’t start their crapfest till the mid-90s, simply put Purdue out and let hospitals, general practitioners and so on to go back to how they did it then: On a case by case basis, trusting the professionals to do their job. (There have always been pill-pushing MDs and prosecutions have been reported years before oxycontin existed. No reason to add one new regulation.)

    3. My point is not to downplay the white suicide epidemic. My point is we’re going to aggravate it by putting more people at risk by removing the reasonable methods of pain treatment by forcing patients to take unreasonable measures to get their lives back. And it’s already adding to the suicide epidemic, which has been going on for quite some time, as noted.

    4. While it seems obvious, it does need stating: Most patients take their meds as directed. Few pills were ever causing any epidemic. But having been cut off and left to overuse OTC “medications” it is likely in few years time we’ll see an epidemic of liver, kidney, and other major organ failure. As Dr. Josh put it, the effective painkilling dose of Tylenol is 30,000 milligrams, which is also the fatal dose.

    And even The National Interest, no friend of working class interests, has admitted the whole narrative never held water:

    What’s curious for me is that they would allow, because they must all agree to it, the complete destruction of such a revenue stream as opioid addiction and the SAckler family, who is one of their own. There’s something else at play here; perhaps they want to revamp the whole opioid poisoning program along different lines, or with a different product and they need complete chaos to do it. It will also send $$ into the coffers of some states which will not really use the money to help anyone. it remains to be seen how this plays out. Tucker is a real hero; God bless him.

    I look forward to a history of American Jews and their criminal enterprises before the Ashkenazi onslaught. The big slave dealers in an earlier century included the Roosevelt brothers, the ancestors of Teddy, Eleanor and FDR. There is a trail of Jewish criminal enterprise from slavery to opium and then to much else in the twentieth century. There was also a Bush who was the head of the Jewish community in the 1700s. The presidents Bush are descended from the opium war people. Their Jewish antecedents and those of the Roosevelts and many others are now obscured. Perhaps this has been researched. It would be good to know of the lierature, if any.

    You seem to conflate two issues: 1) irresponsible marketing and production combined with (over-)prescription of OyxContin, which did contribute to ‘deaths of despair’ via opioid addiction and overdose; 2) an over-reaction to this that has made it difficult for patients to obtain effective prescription opioid pain medication they (claim to) need.

    Are you really surprised that one instance of gross medical malfeasance seems to have led to another?

    The maker of the powerful painkiller OxyContin and three of its current and former executives pleaded guilty Thursday to misleading the public about the drug’s risk of addiction, … chief executive officer Michael Friedman, general counsel Howard Udell and former chief medical officer Paul Goldenheim each pleaded guilty … From 1996 to 2001, the number of oxycodone-related deaths nationwide increased 400 percent while the annual number of OxyContin prescriptions increased nearly 20-fold, according to a report by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.

    The data today on the raw number of opioid overdose deaths is clear (eg leading cause of death for those under 50) — it’s also clear fentanyl and heroin cause the vast majority of these deaths, and that opioid overdose deaths are one of the ‘deaths of despair’ (as is suicide), also that the very large number of ‘deaths of despair’ of all types indicates a huge and tragic problem.

    @eah

    You seem to conflate two issues

    No.

    I’m looking at the bigger picture, there’s a difference.

    Briefly, it worked thus: In the mid-90s, while MDs were being sent to jail for prescribing too much valium, the Sakler Soap Opera started; they began marketing a badly-tested narcotic and continued long enough to get the FDA, DEA, and CDC to connect “drug abuse” and “painkillers” forever linked in the public mind.

    Was no one the slightest bit suspicious when literally EVERY article about the overdose statistics was fronted with a picture of an open med bottle with a clear subliminal pitch to think of one anytime the other is mentioned?

    Was no one even bothering to notice that from 2012 to 2016 the number of narcotic painkillers was cut in half and even the supply forced down. During this time overdoses in some places doubled.

    It was illegal narcotics driving this from the start. Some poor souls simply went to the pill mills because they were getting a cheap prescription drug rather than an expensive ($50 a pop) dose of the drugs that they thought were safer. They lost the bet.

    That Purdue was culpable is obvious. But they were part of a bigger operation. Revving up the drug war is a proven tactic; making a police state bigger is the goal. Did Purdue and the DEA get together and plan this out? It’s a long shot but maybe. It reads like a badly-scripted soap opera, as already noted.

    For the record, I strongly believe Purdue will throw up a paper bankruptcy but keep every dime their crimes brought them.

    The estimated 50 million people in the US who “think they need them” mostly do. But throwing them under the bus to make the rich richer is the American Way.

    It’s still no joy to see KMAC falling for this one. As an owner of the first edition copy of The Culture of Critique it saddens me to see such shoddy research skills when he’s outside his specialty.

    White IQ varies by group too

    There is one fundamental difference between so-called “Blacks who blame Whitey” and so-called “Whiteys who blame Jews” – that is, for the most part, the former group does not voice any desire for their own separate, ethnically homogeneous society. They want to complain and get reparations.

    The latter group wants complete geographical separation. So the comparison is a bit silly here.

    Jews have won around 20% of the Nobel prizes despite only being 0.2% of the world population.

    This has more to do with the method by which the prizes are allocated than anything else. The nobel committe basically asks the organized community for this and that particular branch of science who should get the prize and the guy who can thrum up most spam-support wins. Guess what happens when a jew enters the ring.

    Theres tons of nobel+ and nobel++ science (as in above the level of a standard nobel prize) that never gets a nobel prize because the people who did that research could not count on the unquestioning support of thousands of jews from all over the world.

    Keep in mind that whites (who comprise about 11.5% of the world’s total population) have probably won over 75% of the Nobel prizes. This proves what?

    Perhaps we are placing a bit too much emphasis on this one coveted Prize.
