THE COVID-19 VACCINATION PROGRAM HAS BEEN AN ABSOLUTE FAILURE FOR AMERICA: IT’S TIME FOR A FEDERAL COORDINATED RESPONSE

BY

Norman J Clement RPH.,DDS

WE ARE AT WAR AND WE NEED A COVID ARM FORCES

The Federal and State response to COVID vaccination has been a complete failure. America is dying and in order to reverse this failure we need President Joseph Biden to implement a Federal coordinated response, using all healthcare providers and facilities such as Independent Pharmacies and Dental Schools, and Private Dental offices. America needs a General Honore’ type response, a person in charge of getting 120 million doses administered in 100 days with coordinated oral testing.

My dad is 103 years old and survived thru the 1919 Spanish Flu pandemic growing up in Panama. He now is a resident at the Franklin Nursing Home located in Southfield, Mi. So it was quite a shock to my family when we learned he tested positive for COVID.

ERLIN CLEMENT SR

Erlin Clement Sr., who also voted in the last Presidential Election was rush to the Providence Hospital with a temperature of 100.7, his vitals remained stabled and he was admitted. He survived and has been moved to various rehab facilities in the past 10 plus days.

What’s even more shocking there had been no vaccinations of any residence in the nursing home facility and we were left to wonder what is going on? Neither has there been a coordinated program response to vaccinate any nursing homes.

WE ARE AT WAR AND WE MUST MOBILIZE OUR ENTIRE HEALTHCARE ARMED FORCES

I wrote and published in youarewithinthenorms.com April 14, 2020:

We are at War, and Oral Health will likely be the key to controlling the Novel Corona Virus COVID-19. Yet we have ordered a valued regiment of our healthcare armed forces home (on the sidelines). Contributing to this misguided short sidedness are both CDC and the World Health Organization and their failure to mobilize those who are knowledgable of oral diseases such as dental practitioners in the testing, detection, and prevention of COVID-19 during this pandemic. Thus, resulting in prolonging this War and causing unnecessary disastrous outcomes.“(1)

we need President Joseph Biden to implement a Federal coordinated” response,

As an owner of an independent small pharmacy and also a dentist and many folks like me who are licensed healthcare providers we have reached out to help fight this pandemic and have been ignored and dismissed. While at the same time watching helplessly, family members, friends getting ill and some dying, and that’s not just only Covid.

What’s going on in America, are we not seen as people too? I am a licensed pharmacist in Florida and owner of Pronto Pharmacy LLC in Tampa Florida. My daughter Andenika Adams is a licensed Pharmacist in Florida, Michigan,( lives in Lake Wadsworth, Il ) and certified to give vaccinations. My Brother Erlin Clement Jr. is also a Pharmacist able to give the vaccination.

EVEN OUR CONGRESSPERSON(S) ARE GETTING THE RUNAROUND

I recently wrote my Congresspersons here in Florida Congressman Alfred Lawson (D) (Tallahassee/Jacksonville) and long time friend, and Congresswoman Kathy Castor (D) Tampa, Fl.

We need a Federal coordinated response in vaccinating against the COVID-19 virus.  This is what is wrong with the vaccination program in America and why we have the poorest roll out. We cater to the big shots and dismiss and underestimate, under value and marginalized the independent own pharmacies especially black folk in certain neighborhoods.  Read this article on Big Chains:       

https://www.msn.com/en-us/money/news/pharmacy-chains-want-to-help-as-nation-struggles-to-vaccinate-people/ar-BB1cJN7O?ocid=se

I can honestly say they have reached out, inquired, and have gotten a lethargic response from the state government.

BELOW IS A MUST-SEE VIDEO LINK FROM CNN ON PHARMACY DESERTS

TWO SYSTEMS OF HEALTHCARE IN AMERICA

What we can observe from this above video broadcast by CNN on Pharmacy desertsin this west Chicago neighborhood of Austin, is no accident. This is the by-product of long term targeting of black-owned pharmacies by DEA and the State of Illinois, Under the Guides of Good Faith Dispensing which are being very loosely interpreted by State and Federal Agents. They have been able to shut down nearly all independently own Black-pharmacies.

DONALD TRUMP’S UN-UNITED STATES OF AMERICA: AND THE INSURRECTION IS BEING TELEVISED

BY

NORMAN J CLEMENT

January 6, 2021, Washington, DC., a highly motivated, ragtag Army of Neo-Confederates, infused with trained skilled operatives knowledgeable in the workings of Congress, led a seemingly coordinated attack, on the Capital of The United States of America, in a plot to overthrow its government, re-installing Donald J. Trump as President. “The Insurrection” was being televised. (1)

THE MISSION

Initially, “The Insurrection,” was described as a protest to “Stop The Steal.” However, this was not a group of peaceful disgruntled people of the dominant caste yearning to be free, nor were they just protesting. These were terrorist, engaged in the act of sedition, pillaging, murdering, storming, and rampaging the United States Capital with a strategic focus to:

  1. Incapacitate and overthrow the Government of the United States of America.
  2. Capture and Killed Congresspersons, Senators, the Vice-president of the United States, or any person who got in the way of their mission.
  3. Seize the Electoral Ballots from the Parliamentarian’s Office
  4. A Coup de ta, to “Take Our Country Back” by reinstalling Donal J Trump as President of The Un-united States of America.

House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney (Wyo.), January 12, 2021:

“….The President of the United States summoned this mob, assembled the mob, and lit the flame of this attack. Everything that followed was his doing. None of this would have happened without the President. The President could have immediately and forcefully intervened to stop the violence. He did not. There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution…”

The Mission was simple as it was criminal, in “restoring the lost cause,” yet it was almost successful. The “Trump Insurrection” was highly planned well organized and orchestrated by the President, and his henchmen for months with the collaboration of some Senators, staff members, (insiders) and Neo-Confederates operatives and consisted of people with knowledge of the who, what when, and where of the Capitol Hill campus.

MISSION COMPROMISED

The Mission consisted of intel capable operatives, who were blended, effectively with the insurrectionist terrorist army, seizing mail, computers, and for themselves office nameplates and lectures as souvenirs. However, the handlers (henchmen) had failed to instruct their mobsters to leave their cell phones at home and please don’t urinate (pee) or defecate (shit) on the tables, walls, or floor while on the mission. Seemingly, these operatives had not been made aware of cell phone forensics. While, marking one’s scent on the mission is leaving one’s DNA, which is far better than leaving fingerprints.

THIS WAS ALL VERY PREDICTABLE

The “Trump Insurrection” of January 6, 2021, could have somewhat been predicted on election night November 3, 2020, I wrote then in my article America Appears Headed For Civil War: The Caste:

” …feeling the anguish and strongly believing Donald Trump had won a second term as President of the United States. At that moment, I called my friend (frat) Cedric Alexander “The Cop Doc,” and we both related and express the feelings of the Dalit Ph.D., a scholar from Isabel Wilkerson book, “The Caste of the subordinate caste, trapped in the purgatory of someones else’s definition of who he is and who he should be. (2)

“For us, it is dignity, they might attack us, and then, they say that we are hostile when for us it is a matter of dignity. Our dignity was under assault.”

However by 5:00 am November 4th, 2020 things had changed or that’s what I was told. Perhaps Donald Trumpism attitudes had prevailed because every vote cast in support of him reflects his beliefs in the dominant caste….”

THE INSURRECTION IS BEING TELEVISED

YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO STAY HOME BROTHER, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO COP OUT. YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO LOSE YOURSELF ON OXYCODONE, HYDROMORPHONE, OR METHADONE, OR ROLEX COMMERCIALS BECAUSE THE INSURRECTION WILL BE TELEVISED.

THE INSURRECTION WILL BE TELEVISED BROUGHT TO YOU BY FOX NEWS, B.E.T, CNN, AND MSNBC. THE INSURRECTION WILL COME TO YOU ON DIGITAL HD COLOR TV AND SHOW YOU PICTURES OF TOM COTTON, DAVID PURDUE, AND TED CRUZ BECAUSE THE INSURRECTION WILL BE TELEVISED.

THE INSURRECTION WILL SHOW DONALD TRUMP TAKING A DUMP, AND MITCH MCCONNEL THE GRIM REAPER LOOKING EVER CREEPER, OH SAY CAN YOU SEE BY THE DAWNS EARLY LIGHT, WHAT SO PROUDLY WE HALE, BECAUSE THE INSURRECTION WILL BE TELEVISED.

ABSOLUTELY, MY BROTHER WHILE THE PROUD BOYS ARE MAKING NOISE, WHILE BLACK-LIVES WON’T MATTER AND YOUR I-PHONE AND TEXT MACHINES WILL RECORD SCENES IN THE HOME OF THE BRAVE (BUILT BY THOSE WHO WERE ENSLAVED) AS THE ROCKETS ARE RED GLARE AND BOMBS ARE BLOWING THEM THREW THE AIR BECAUSE THE INSURRECTION WILL BE TELEVISED. 

WHAT’S GOING ON AMERICA

OH, THE INSURRECTION WILL BE TELEVISED, WHILE THE CONSTITUTION WILL NOT BE YOUR SOLUTION FOR THE REAL ISSUE IS HOW WE USE IT FOR TOILET TISSUE BECAUSE THE INSURRECTION WILL BE TELEVISED.

AND MARTIN LUTHER KING WON’T MEAN A DAMN THING, FOR INSURRECTION WILL BE TELEVISED

THE INSURRECTION WILL BE TELEVISE, THE INSURRECTION WILL BE TELEVISED THE INSURRECTION WILL BE TELEVISED, THE INSURRECTION WILL BE TELEVISE, THE INSURRECTION WILL BE TELEVISED THE INSURRECTION WILL BE TELEVISED, THE INSURRECTION WILL BE TELEVISE, THE INSURRECTION WILL BE TELEVISED THE INSURRECTION WILL BE TELEVISED, THE INSURRECTION WILL BE TELEVISE, THE INSURRECTION WILL BE TELEVISED THE INSURRECTION WILL BE TELEVISED, THE INSURRECTION WILL BE TELEVISE, THE INSURRECTION WILL BE TELEVISED THE INSURRECTION WILL BE TELEVISED, 

AND IN THE END MY FRIEND

JOE BIDEN WILL STILL BE THE PRESIDENT KAMALA HARRIS THE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICAN ON JANUARY 20TH 2021 AND INAUGURATION WIL BE TELEVISED IN THE LAND OF THE FREE AND THE HOME OF THE BRAVE, GOD BLESS AMERICA (3)

UNITED STATES SURGEON GENERAL JEROME ADAMS AND HIS BROTHER: SO WHY IS PHILLIP IN PRISON AND NOT IN TREATMENT???

US SURGEON GENERAL JEROME ADAMS

On April 25, 2018, at the Behavioral Health and Opioids Conference, held in Washington DC, the then United States Surgeon General Jerome Adams spoke of two personal tragedies. His brother Philip’s use of illicit drugs and is serving a 10-year sentence for drug addiction. (see video below)

UNITED STATES SURGEON GENERAL SPEAKS ABOUT HIS BROTH PHILIP

SO WHY IS PHILLIP IN PRISON ???

So why is Phillip in prison? Because Phillip belongs to the subordinate caste in America and similar to the targetted Black own pharmacies, he is low hanging fruit and a quota has to be met. If Phillip were white, he would more likely be receiving a lifetime of treatment. Through the process of creative deceptive prosecutions, the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) has sidestepped Constitutional issues based on a lack of legal standing. The reality is there is no fix or cure for addiction and it is a lifelong treatment.

The below PBS documentary, Understanding The Opioid Epidemic, points out that addiction is a chronic disease condition in the same manner as hypertension, diabetes, and is worthy of treatment. According to the National Institute on Health (NIH) “fewer than 12 % of people with addiction get help.” See the below PBS “SERIES UNDERSTANDING THE OPIOID EPIDEMIC video from their series outline treatment: 

ADDICTION TREATMENT IS FOR A LIFETIME

UNDERSTANDING THE OPIOID EPIDEMIC

However, the DEA/DOJ, prosecutors, and Judges’ premises of addiction are seriously flawed. Addiction (dependency) on non-medical and medically prescribed opioids is a lifelong treatment and the patient will relapse. In the case of Phillip Adams, the system wrongly criminalized him ( locked him up), and these attitudes are unfortunately supported by the foundation of the courts and bias within our criminal justice system.

WHEN YOU ARE BLACK AND IN AMERICA, YOU ARE ALREADY IN JAIL

More importantly, addiction and dependency further applies to nearly all medications such as the dependency on high blood pressure medications, thyroid replacement, diabetic medications which are taken for chronic conditions to sustain life throughout. This also extends to medications to treat psychosis such as Paxil, Zoloft, and anxiety medications such as those found in the benzodiazepine class, etc.

OPIOIDS EPIDEMIC NO EASY FIX

According to the NIH, National Institute on Drug Abuse, Advancing Addictive Science:

“ Like many other chronic diseases, substance use disorders can be treated. Medications are available to treat heroin use disorder while reducing drug cravings and withdrawal symptoms, thus improving the odds of achieving abstinence. There are now a variety of medications that can be tailored to a person’s recovery needs while taking into account co-occurring health conditions. Medication combined with behavioral therapy is particularly effective, offering hope to individuals who suffer from substance use disorders and for those around them.” (33)

PHILLIP MUST BE RELEASED FROM PRISON

If the United States Surgeon General’s brother, Phillip, is to be considered a human being and his infliction was determined as a disease, then logically he must be released from prison and given life-long treatment. The deserving treatment is similar to any other dominant caste person living in this country, be they citizen, and non-citizen. Addiction to control a race-based justification has become an unfortunate mindset within the criminal justice systems. When you are Black in America , you are already in jail

IMPORTANT TOOLS NECESSARY TO SUSTAIN IGNORANCE

Let’s say one wanted to keep control of any particular population by keeping them in a state of sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity. This is a very easy thing to do, particularly amongst urban planners. We see this in the layout of many towns in the US South and North (such as Detroit) and especially when visiting South Africa Soweto. 

The common urban designs of demarcations utilized to subjugate a targetted population are the use of industrial barriers such as railroad tracks, large highways, and large industrial towers. Further, reducing/limit exit and entrance points, limiting education and health, maintaining poorly furnished schools, and strategically flooding these communities with nonmedical narcotic derivatives, while prohibiting treatment for addictions, undermines the community. Knowingly, these nonmedical substances will precipitate crime which will lead to long-term prison sentences. In some sense, this has all happened under the supervision of the United States Drug Enforcement Agency and its involvement has been well documented.

  1. Control the logistical distribution in neighborhoods. Flood their neighborhoods with liquor stores, heroin, and expose their children to crack cocaine, 

2. Mis-Education, such as removing Civics from school curriculae

3. Redefine medical protocols and mis-educate the populous.

THE ROLE OF HEROIN, WHAT IS IT AND WHAT IS ITS PURPOSE?

The United State Opioid Epidemic has been driven by too many white people (dominant caste) dying on the use of illicit non medically manufactured opioid derivatives that have turned on them. One cannot ignore the social-economic, racial component of this “drug crisis” and a key component of how it has been deployed in communities of color. (35)

According to the article, White Opioids: Pharmaceutical Race and “The War on Drugs That Wasn’t,” by Julie Netherland and Helena Hansen US Department HHS, Published online 2017 Jun 28. doi: 10.1057/biosoc.2015.46PMCID: PMC5501419 NIHMSID: NIHMS752948 PMID: 28690668

“In one of the only studies to explicitly look at how drug policy is used to carve out White spaces exempt from punitive more approaches, Lassiter (2015) takes a historical look at the roots of the White opioid crisis of today. Looking back to marijuana policies of the 1970s, he states: “exemptions created for white middle-class participants in the underground market-place were not merely epiphenomenal but rather constitutive of the expansion of the carceral state (p. 127)”. The drug war operates because of a reciprocal relationship between the criminalization of blackness and the decriminalization of whiteness.”

THE ROLE OF HEROIN. WHAT THEY THINK IS ONE THING. WHAT YOU DO IS ANOTHER THING. 

Heroin in the United States is a unique design non-medical synthetic morphine derivative targeted to maintain a subordinate caste of sub-class humans in a state of servitude. A substance design to control the subordinate caste has gotten out into the dominant caste. This calls for different rules for addressing the Opioid crisis. However, Heroin was introduced in Black (subordinate castes) and Hispanic neighborhoods and is the “Gate Way “Drug” to the prison industrial complex and plays a specific role in population control. Whereas abuse of prescription medication is the gateway to non-medical substances like heroin. (35)

Heroin is simply morphine, which has been diacetylated. According to the American Addiction Center:

“Heroin is perhaps the most notorious of the opiates. Highly addictive and synonymous with the so-called druggies on the street, it’s a drug that is commonly abused and seldom understood. It’s also used in the clinical setting where it’s known as diamorphine, diacetylmorphine, or morphine diacetate, but it’s mainly used as a last resort for end-stage pain.” (34)

LESEDI CULTURAL VILLAGE, GAUTENG, SOUTH AFRICA

LOGISTICAL DISTRIBUTION AND DEPLOYMENT

HEROIN A NON-MEDICAL OPIOID, AS THE SUBSTANCE OF CHOICE IN POPULATION CONTROL

Dan Baum, interviewed John Ehrlichman, April 2016, [who served as President Richard M. Nixon’s Domestic Policy Adviser, Ehrlichment] explained, the purpose behind Nixon’s War on Drugs

The Richard M.Nixon campaign in 1968, and the Nixon White House after that, had two enemies: the antiwar left and black people. Do you understand what I’m saying? We knew we couldn’t make it illegal to be either against the war or blacks, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. We could arrest their leaders, raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course, we did.”

Given the times of massive oversight of the FBI, the Nixon administration, as a matter of convenience chose the newly reconstituted United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to supplant the role of the mission of Hoover’s FBI. The Federal Bureau of Investigation was effectively used to undermine and destroy black people, arrest their leaders, and disrupt every form of their commerce. The DEA assumed the same historical mission as did the FBI.

THE IMPORTANCE OF MISEDUCATION AND MAINTAINING IGNORANCE

The miseducation of a targeted population plays an essential component in maintaining dominance. Moreover, despite the fact, “we have overcome” the draconian-colonialism legacy of “Jim Crow” and Apartheid in both the United States and South Africa, we continue to observe the residuals effects of these practices on children struggling academically.

*HENDRIK FRENSCH VERWOERD PRIME MINISTER UNION OF SOUTH AFRICA

Among the laws which were drawn and enacted during Hendrik Verwoerd’s time as the Minister for Native Affairs were the Population Registration Act and the Group Areas Act in 1950, the Pass Laws Act of 1952, and the Reservation of Separate Amenities Act of 1953. 

Verwoerd wrote the Bantu Education Act, which was to have a deleterious effect on the ability of black South Africans to be educated as Verwoerd himself noted:

that the purpose of the Bantu Education Act was to ensure that blacks would have only just enough education to work as unskilled laborers.”[1]

THE BANTU EDUCATION ACT

The Bantu Education Act ensured that black South Africans had only the barest minimum of education, thus entrenching the role of blacks in the apartheid economy as a cheap source of unskilled labor. In June 1954, Verwoerd in a speech stated: 

“The Bantu must be guided to serve his own community in all respects. There is no place for him in the European community above the level of certain forms of labor. Within his own community, however, all doors are open.”[1]

One black South African woman who worked as an anti-apartheid activist, Nomavenda Machine, in particular, criticized Verwoerd for the Bantu Education Act of 1953, which caused generations of black South Africans to suffer an inferior education, saying: “After white people had taken the land, after white people had impoverished us in South Africa, the only way out of our poverty was through education. And he came up with the idea of giving us an inferior education.” 1

In the United States, we have experienced actions nearly identical to Hendrik Frensch Verwoerd’s thinking in former Governor Rick Snyder in the State of Michigan, who directed the forced takeover of the Detroit Public Schools. Snyder’s action resulted in one of the greatest tragedies in which he deliberately and knowingly poisoned the water system in Flint, Michigan. Snyder’s actions were both methodical and inhumane and lead to the deaths and destruction of an entire city of predominantly people of color. Snyder has been steadfast in saying, “my action was for the good of the people and we were saving money.”

DEA REDEFINES MEDICAL AND PHARMACEUTICAL PROTOCOLS

AND WHO CONTROLS THE NARRATIVE?

The United States Department of Justice (DOJ), United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has fostered an overall attitude that there are treatments for some and prison for others. Both Federal Government entities have further hyped media, the public, and Congress with exaggerations of the phrases pill mills, cocktails, holy trinity, and red flags, to which pharmacists have a corresponding responsibility to determine whether prescriptions are illegitimate, without first consulting the physician.***

WHO CONTROLS THE NARCOTIC ANALGESIC (OPIOID) NARRATIVE ???

More concerning, over a period of 20 years the DEA has created troubling guidelines enforced upon the pharmacists which disrupts the physician-patient relationship. The laws and rules the DEA has created, further forces pharmacists to operate outside the licensure and the scope of the profession of pharmacy.

More significantly, at any point, a DEA Diversion Investigator can arbitrarily target, sanction, or have a pharmacist arrested and/or a pharmacy’s Control Substance License suspended. This is based solely on DEA Diversion Investigators’ profound ignorance of medical/pharmaceutical procedures, bias, and/or their failure to investigate.

ELIMINATE DISCUSSION OF THE DISEASE STATE BY PROSECUTING THE PILL

Eliminate the ability to treat pain by eliminating pharmacies and pharmacists and criminimizing the medications used to treat pain. For example, in every indictment, US Attorney Generals have redefined the purposes of narcotic analgesic medications, such as oxycodone, to be a dangerously addictive drug that causes death. The DOJ/DEA has cleverly controlled the narrative by reclassifying the medication’s mechanism of action, therapeutic indications, understanding of its pharmacological effect by spinning criminality. The DOJ/DEA has intentionally gone out of its way to willfully and deliberately omit from their narratives the disease states and the conditions of the patient.

For example, oxycodone is targeted by DEA/DOJ as a dangerous drug. In fact, we know as pharmacists all drug medications are dangerous, especially when taken beyond their therapeutic dose levels. If controlling death has been what the US Attorney’s office has been looking for, then they would be hard-pressed to explain the role of chemotherapy and long-term use of Cox inhibitors, which causes the death of many persons, even when given therapeutic doses. 

WHY NATIONS LIKE CHINA AND OTHER SOVEREIGNTIES ARE UNLIKELY TO ASSIST

The United States Department of Justice has been turned into a private system of injustice to target Black people. In particular, its leadership class and educated professionals. They’ve introduced, promoted, and controlled through law enforcement, non-medical narcotic analgesic analogs (heroin), analogs of cocaine (crack), and then arrested, convicted, and imprisoned all to suppress progressive thought and actions. One should note this strategy is not new and was used effectively by England against China, which led to the Boxer War for the same purpose, to suppress progressive thought and actions. (5)

THE Yihequan

The Opium Wars and The Boxer rebellion (Yihequan) resulted in a near-century of humiliation in which Western powers extracted high concessions from the Chinese People. Opium was ruthlessly and brutally imposed upon the population of China by these Westerners which undermined centuries of intellectual and progressive thought. Therefore, countries like China are very unlikely to give the United States any sort of sympathetic understanding as to the “Opioid Epidemic” we are suffering through.

The Opium Wars

So, when we as a nation complain about fentanyl derivatives from China arriving at our borders via US mail, then we must also think of the Chinese mindset that they are doing to us what we did onto them. Perhaps, one day we can reach a period of truth and reconciliation and attempt to move on, as was done in South Africa.

ADDICTION AND DRUG DEPENDENCY ARE MEDICAL PUBLIC HEALTH ISSUES NOT CRIMINAL ISSUES. WE NEED TO ADHERE TO THIS NEW PRACTICAL SENSE ON POLICIES, FOR THE WAR ON DRUGS IS OVER. 

DRUG ADDICTION IS NOT A CRIME

UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE AND DRUG ENFORCEMENT ADMINISTRATION’S MASSIVE FRAUD AND CORRUPTION SCHEME AND OVERSIGHT IS NEEDED

“Retired Neonatologist Keith Kanarek MD, Tampa Florida points out they operate under think and feel rather than fact-based on a foundation of science.

The United States Justice Department (DOJ) has engaged in the largest prosecutorial fraud scheme perpetrated on the taxpayers of America. DOJ has been fully made aware that the treatment of suboxone works and is supported by the NIH. Instead, they ignore science and have engaged in a campaign of science suppression, which precipitates the opioid crisis in America.

Most importantly they specifically targeted Black people and people of color for forced removal and imprisonment and any person(s) who got in the way or dared challenge them was made an example of and economically destroyed. They continue to perform their mission set out by their creator Richard Nixon some forty years ago.

AS THE LORD INSTRUCTED PAUAL DO NOT BE AFRAID, GO ON SPEAKING, DO NOT BE SILENT, FOR I AM WITH YOU AND NO ONE WILL ATTACK YOU TO HARM YOU, FOR I HAVE MANY IN THIS CITY WHO ARE MY PEOPLE

INDISCRIMINATE RAIDS

“The killing of Breonna Taylor reveals yet again how easy it is for the state to take a Black life and how hard it is to hold the state accountable for its transgressions. That is in part because the system is designed to make it nearly impossible for the state to transgress. Taylor was an innocent woman, sleeping in her own home, breaking no law. The state broke down her door and shot her dead,” as written by Charles Blow, writer NewYork Times (2)

Mike Barnes, DCDBA law firm, wrote an extensive brief called for a more sensible approach:

” Indiscriminate raids, searches, and investigations of health care professionals put patients’ lives at risk, destroy professionals’ livelihoods and careers, and create confusion, fear, and reluctance to prescribe among other health care professionals. This chilling effect undermines congressional efforts to expand the number of professionals who prescribe medications to treat pain. (7)

SHARPEVILLE MASSACRE, MARCH 21,1960

” To ensure that professionals feel confident prescribing or dispensing medications to treat opioid use disorder and other conditions that may require treatment with controlled medications, complaints against licensed health care professionals, including pharmacists, should be investigated first by professional licensing boards, which are governed and staffed by professionals with health-specific expertise, rather than by law enforcement.”

______ JOHN ERLICHMAN, NIXON’S DOMESTIC ADVISOR, APRIL 2016

We could arrest their leaders, raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course, we did.”

“Congress and state legislators should, therefore, amend federal and state laws to require law enforcement to obtain a referral from the appropriate state health-profession licensing board before instituting, aiding in, or defending an investigation or criminal or civil action against a prescriber or dispenser of FDA-approved medications in which medical need or patient care, including the prescribing or dispensing of medications, is at issue.”

THE DEA’S SUBOXONE SCAM RAIDS

ADDICTION AND DRUG DEPENDENCY ARE MEDICAL PUBLIC HEALTH ISSUES NOT CRIMINAL ISSUES WE NEED TO ADHERE TO THIS NEW PRACTICAL SENSE ON POLICIES, FOR THE WAR ON DRUGS IS OVER.

According to Larry Coates Subutex vs. Suboxone

“The prescribing of Subutex and Suboxone as part of medication-assisted treatment (“MAT”) for opioid addiction lies at the heart of this case. Between December 2016 and March 2019, Oak Hill Hometown Pharmacy in West Virginia (“Oak Hill”) had filled about 2,000 prescriptions for Subutex.”

SUBOXONE LIFETIME OF TREATMENT

“Both Subutex and Suboxone can be employed in MAT treatment. They are different, however, and in a critical way. While both are buprenorphine products, Suboxone contains naloxone as well, which, as DEA’s opposition brief states, “is intended to block the euphoric high resulting from the injection of the drug by narcotic abusers,” which makes it less susceptible to abuse. Subutex contains no such blocking element. That said, Subutex is recommended for pregnant women and for anyone allergic to naloxone.”

“WE ARE PHARMACISTS NOT DRUG DEALERS”

This minor exception, however, cannot explain a large number of prescriptions for Subutex by Oak Hill Pharmacy. This was the primary reason behind the issuance of the ISO. The very fact that the prescriptions were for Subutex – “a widely abused controlled substance,” according to the DEA brief – was the first cited “red flag” identified by DEA. United States Attorney Alan McGonigal, in fact, told the Court, “You could say that the fact that it was Subutex was the primary triggering red flag.” (7),(9),(14),(24)

SUBOXONE HAS BEEN DELIBERATELY MIS-CLASSIFIED BY DEA TO SNAR HEALTHCARE PROVIDERS

https://videopress.com/embed/dg3uS8aT?preloadContent=metadata&hd=1

US ATTORNEY McGonigal KNEW THE TREATMENT PROTOCOL OF SUBOXONE BUT CHOSE TO LIE AND FALSIFY HIS WARRANT TO TARGET OAK HILL PHARMACY AND ITS OWNER MARTIN NDJOU

In the case of Oak Hill Pharmacy, both the DEA and the United States Attorney  Alan McGonigal, argument and position sat upon a foundation of rubbish.  Most importantly, we see this pattern of distorting science in US Attorney Alan McGonigal, John Beerbower, Robert M. Duncan Jr. Lou Anna Redcorn. Lying to Judges and defrauding the American taxpayers must come with legal consequences, such as disbarment.

EXPOSING THE DEA’S FRAUDULENT RED FLAG ANALYSIS

On August 9, 2019, DEA Diversion Investigator Richard Albert prepared a warrant that “opinion based on a red flag that Pronto Pharmacy LLC, in Tampa Florida engaged in manufacturing-controlled substances. This is an assumption that a crime was committed within the Pronto Pharmacy.  Pronto Pharmacy is a licensed pharmaceutical company by law that can compound medications. (37)

As further written December 29, 2020, by the Wall Street Journal Editorial Board in a stark rebuke of the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) lawsuit filed in federal court in Delaware claims that: The Walmart DOJ complaint also includes:

” more than 190 mentions of “red flags” about suspicious opioid prescriptions. It claims Walmart often didn’t adequately resolve them and sometimes knowingly filled illegitimate prescriptions despite the warnings. But Walmart notes in its lawsuit that the Controlled Substances Act “and its implementing regulations do not include the concept of red flagslet alone identify any particular factors as a red flag.”

“The feds try to side-step this problem by claiming that, under the Controlled Substances Act and regulations, “the pharmacist’s conduct must adhere to the usual course of his or her professional practice as a pharmacist.” The complaint argues that catching and resolving “red flags” for opioid prescriptions is “a well-recognized responsibility of a pharmacist in the professional practice of pharmacy,” so “failing to fulfill this responsibility” is a violation of the federal law.”

However, the Wall Street Journal Editorial Board further points out: 

” All of this raises constitutional issues based on a lack of legal standing. A negligence claim like the one alleged here is supposed to have a specific party claiming a specific injury caused by someone specific. Those are typically claims by one private party against another. The government can sue for violations of law, not because someone was negligent. The government’s claims of Controlled Substances Act violations are so general that they seem contrived to add some violation of the law.(1)

” In effect, DOJ is asking the federal court to overrule state law in favor of informal federal guidance and a vague notion of pharmaceutical best practices. This harassment was typical of the Obama era but it’s especially disappointing from the Trump Justice Department. The Biden Administration will be happy to run with this prosecutorial abuse.”(1)

THE SIX “RIGHTS”

The six medication rights serve as the foundation of safe medication administration. The RIGHT PATIENT must be given the RIGHT MEDICATION in the RIGHT DOSE by the RIGHT ROUTE at the RIGHT TIME. The pharmacist must also ensure that the prescription is supported by the RIGHT DOCUMENTATION

This involves cross-checking the prescriber’s order against the patient’s history and medical information to identify potential drug-drug, drug-disease, or drug-allergy interactions. Although electronic prescribing technology can help detect errors in medication names, dosing, and frequency, it is not foolproof. The pharmacist should verify that all elements of the order are correct (Brown, 2016).

Once the medication ordered is verified as appropriate for the patient and appropriately prescribed, it is the pharmacist’s responsibility to ensure that the correct medication in the right form and dose is provided to the patient at the appropriate time. With the vast array of drugs on the market, it is not possible for a prescriber or a pharmacist to be personally familiar with the uses, dosing, side-effects, potential interactions, and other implications of every drug.

If a pharmacist is unfamiliar with a medication, he or she must consult a drug reference before dispensing the medication.

These guidelines appear on nearly every State Governing Board of Pharmacist and Pharmacy-Technician throughout the United States of America.

DEA weakening medical protocols treatment and HEALTHCARE institutions    

In this case, as the Court put it, “the DEA continually points to the 2,000 prescriptions . . . as suggesting abuse and diversion.” However, “more than a suspicion that these prescriptions indicate abuse and diversion that would rise to the level of a danger to public health and safety” is required. Here’s the key:

“There must be evidence that the Pharmacy was filling prescriptions that patients were abusing or diverting at the time the agency issued the ISO in August 2019.”

Proof of actual diversion or actual abuse is necessary, not simply suspicion based on Subutex prescription numbers. With the absence of any evidence of actual diversion, the ISO was dissolved.

Norman J Clement, Aaron Howard, Lynn Michelle Clark, Rick Fertil demand the return of our DEA pharmacy Control Substance Registrations Immediately.

While DEA’s arguments did not ultimately prevail before the District Court, it is important to understand that, despite strong support from the Trump Administration and Congress for greater access and availability to treatment for substance use disorders, DEA maintains a rather aggressive enforcement philosophy regarding the prescribing and dispensing of single-entity buprenorphine products. This may be justified, as there is anecdotal evidence that these products are used for other than their intended purpose. Regardless, mere speculation or conjecture cannot be the basis for the issuance of an ISO, from Judge Goodwin’s order. (37)

THE ECONOMIC LYNCHING OF OAK HILL PHARMACY OF OAK HILL, WEST VIRGINIA A BLACK-OWNED PHARMACY

In West Virginia, a state hard hit by the overdose crisis, the DEA raided and temporarily revoked a dispensing license for the Oak Hill Hometown Pharmacy in August 2019 until a federal court intervened. The pharmacy dispenses buprenorphine, and a federal judge agreed that DEA’s actions created barriers to lifesaving addiction treatment in an area with few providers. Martin Njoku, the pharmacy’s manager, said the license suspension and legal costs nearly put the pharmacy out of business. (2),(3),(4),(15),(16)

SO WHY IS OAK HILL PHARMACY STILL BEING PROSECUTED

Despite prevailing in the Federal District Court, the DEA pushes on against scientists and true medical experts to harass and prosecute Martin Ndjou, owner of Oak Hill Pharmacy. Repeatedly, the DEA has been found to have abused its authority. The agency has a history of human rights abuses, lavish payments to confidential informants, and surveillance of Americans with no suspected connection to illegal drug activities. (7),(9),(14),(15), (24)

OAK HILL HOMETOWN PHARMACY

OAK HILL PHARMACY, OAK HILL WEST VIRGINIA

THE SAGA OF OAK HILL HOMETOWN PHARMACY IS THE SAGA OF THE BLACK-OWNED PHARMACY TARGETED FOR EXTINCTION

WE ARE PHARMACISTS, NOT DRUG DEALERS

These Black-owned pharmacies fall well within the foundation of the American System of Caste, “The Origins of Discontent,” described by author Isabelle Wilkerson,  “where their degraded station justifies their degradation, as they are consigned to the lowest, dirtiest jobs and thus were seen as lowly and dirty and everyone in the caste system absorbed the message of their degradation.” (8)  

“….BOTH HOUSE AND SENATE JUDICIARY COMMITTEES MUST GIVE OVERSIGHT, INVESTIGATE AND REORGANIZE THE DEA….”

Many of these Black-owned Pharmacies have been in business for more than 10 years.
In just the past 6 months at least 7 or more Black-owned Pharmacies have been attacked and classified as “Public Health Threats” and their Control Substance Registration suspended. See below Order to Show Cause Oak Hill Hometown Pharmacy

misc-iso-oak-hill-1“OAK HILL PHARMACY SHOW CAUSE”

These Black-owned pharmacies are not public health threats nor imminent dangers. Yet had their certificate of registration was suspended (supposedly) for ignoring alleged red flags in filling narcotic analgesic medications.

DEA HAS CONCOCTED THEIR FRAUDULENT REALITY

How did we get here, is perhaps why science has been avoided. Most people who went to college observed quite early than those who wanted to become lawyers were the same people who in general hated science and math. Students of math and sciences knew this to be the case.

The writer Norman J Clement, speaks of his times as an undergrad student at Florida A&M University:

...”the science building was called Jones Hall, it was also the Pharmacy School and nearly where all sciences such as biology, physics, organic chemistry, pharmacology, pharmaco-medicinal chemistry were taught. Those of us who loved science were so thrilled to see Jones Hall, we’d breakdance and moonwalk to get into that building.”

LESEDI CULTURAL VILLAGE GAUTENG, SOUTH AFRICA

WHEN SCIENCE TAKES THE STAND

“Those folks who hated science and math generally wanted to be lawyers. The problem with that has become once completing law school and getting barred, they also have risen to positions as Administrative judges, District Court Judges, Federal Court Judges, Federal Appeals court judges, where science oftentimes takes the stand. Where the adjudication of science, math, and medical issues call for an intrinsic understanding of these various medical disciplines.”

University of California Davis Law Professor Edward J. Imwinkried points out these deficiencies of law in his book SCIENCE TAKES THE STAND; The Growing Misuse of Expert Testimony. (36)

What is clearly observed in nearly all pharmacy DEA cases is how the courts eliminate all discussions of the disease state of the patient and can also include the practitioners’ diagnosis, which is based on blood chemistry results, radiographs (CBCT, MRI, X-ray).

Various courts, especially DEA Administrative Courts, (consisting of judges whose employment and opinion are bound to the DEA Administrator and not by facts) have relied on fraudulent misrepresentations of the testimony of non-qualified expert witnesses which have permitted to take the stand. Even, so much as the practitioner’s progress reports have been eliminated, for the sake of discussion of “pill” number counts. Oftentimes, these courts have disqualified both patients and physicians yet giving more weight to the testimony of a fraudulent DEA expert witness. (36)

CONCLUSION

The Federal Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has existed for more than 40 years, but little attention has been given to the role the agency has played in fueling mass incarceration, racial disparities, and other drug war problems. Congress has rarely scrutinized the agency, its actions, or its budget, instead deferring to DEA Administrators on how best to deal with drug-related issues.

It is not unrelated, that the senior career official in the Justice Department’s Criminal Division, who oversees the targeting and prosecution of public officials, is John Keeney–a man who got his start working in the Justice Department’s Internal Security Division in 1951, working hand-in-glove with Hoover’s FBI.

THE UNITED STATES DRUG ENFORCEMENT ADMINISTRATION (DEA), A CULTURE OF DEEP PERVASIVE RACISM: CONGRESS MUST REORGANIZED THE DEA

THE NORTH STAR RESEARCH GROUP

CONGRESS MUST REORGANIZE THE UNITED STATES DRUG ENFORCEMENT ADMINISTRATION (DEA)

The current enforcement practices of the DEA are biases based. The racially-based culture is so powerful that members of the DEA lack the cognitive abilities to provide adequate and accurate law enforcement practices.  The race-based culture has created a practice of racial indifference towards African American pharmacists.  

These racial indifference behaviors are found within the DEA are the same ones expressed by a white supremacist.  Such levels of indifference influence are part of their standard operations and its law enforcement operational practices.  This agency cannot and should not be allowed to practice its race base enforcement.   

MOTHER WINNIE MANDELA, SOWETO SOUTH AFRICA

The DEA agencies culture is infused with racial biases. This culture infusion of indifference is modeled throughout the agency. Such levels of racial indifference influences DEA’s law enforcement operational practices which has placed a black eye on the professional men and women who serve with our law enforcement community around the world. 

The culture of indifference has further subjugated the standard operational practices throughout the DEA. No other law enforcement agency in the world has had agents work in concert with the cartels. This agency through its practices of discrimination failed to adequately recognize that its has been compromised. These practices within the agency are so dysfunctional, that through learn behaviors employees find it easy to do wrong. 

DISCRIMINATION IS WRONG

 The dangers the DEA has placed America within is presently uncrowned by the agency.   Within the assimilation theory, an agency will follow the cultural practices of wrongfulness and subordinate the laws to achieve personal objectives.         

This agency has gone far enough. The current practices are far below the standards of a professional law enforcement agency.   

According to ABC News Jim Mustian of Associated Press and the Baltimore Sun-Times Justin Fenton June 18, 2020;

The group of retired agents said in a statement sent to news organizations this week that Attorney General William Barr was out of touch with racial disparities that permeate not only local police departments but federal law enforcement. In fact Black DEA Agent filed a claim of gross discrimination and diabolical racism, in 1978 and it sat in the Federal Court System for 41 years, while incompetent, unqualified whites were freely promoted.

“This is a culture,” said Karl Colder, who previously oversaw the DEA’s Washington field division, served on the agency’s diversity committee, and was one of 76 former agents involved in drafting the statement. “You still don’t have African Americans in positions to really monitor and ensure things are equal.

Gary Tuggle, who was a special agent in charge of the Baltimore field office and served as interim Baltimore Police commissioner in 2018, said he thinks the problem has worsened in recent years.

Ernie Howard, who was the special agent in charge in Houston from 1997 to 2001, said there is “not an even playing field.”

“The DEA hasn’t had an African American female special agent in charge in years,” Tuggle said. “That’s ridiculous.”

June Werlow Rogers, who previously led the DEA’s New England field office from 2002 to 2008. “I’m really glad we’re at a point now where people are listening, but in order for us to change things, we’ve got to change minds and hearts.”

“Rogers recalled while an agent in Baltimore she was pulled over and questioned despite showing her DEA credentials until a white DEA supervisor intervened and that a magistrate judge once confused her for a defendant in court”. (1),(2)

We can easily relate with former Agent Rogers and share our experience with privileged Judges.  Transcripts from January 28, 2020, DEA v Pronto Pharmacy LLC Tampa Florida. DOCKET 19-42, before Judge Mark D. Dowd held in Tampa, Fl.

MR. SISCO: No objection.

JUDGE DOWD: Thank you, Mr. Sisco.

JUDGE DOWD speaking to witness (DEA Richard James Albert): Mr. Clement, one question. When you served that document on the pharmacy, were these printed out for you at that time, or were these maintained at the pharmacy in a logbook, or do you know where these actually came from?

THE WITNESS (DEA Richard James Albert): They will be maintained in a logbook. But when I requested a subpoena, I would think that they made copies of them.

And one correction —

JUDGE DOWD: Okay. So, you weren’t there when they were produced, you came back for them?

THE WITNESS: (MR. ALBERT) “Well, they was — I either picked them up or they were sent to me”.

JUDGE DOWD: Okay.

THE WITNESS (DEA Richard James Albert): “But one correct.  I ‘m Mr. Albert. You called me Mr. Clement”.

JUDGE DOWD: “Oh, I’m sorry. Excuse me. Its old age creeping up. “Old Age,” 

If the Administrative Judge Mark Dowd is confused because of his age, then what levels of confusion was expressed in his attempts to enforce the laws. 

CONCLUSION  

Why must an agency continue to operate when it openly violated the laws.  We can see that the DEA is no longer an agency that practices and enforces the law effectively and correctly.  This agency has developed a system of support for the rightness of the agency and not for the rights to protect and serve the country.  If this agency is not reorganized or shut down, it will continue to present a clear and present danger to African Americans and America.

WE ARE PHARMACISTS NOT DRUG DEALERS: CONGRESS MUST REORGANIZE THE UNITED STATES DRUG ENFORCEMENT ADMINISTRATION (DEA)

THE NORTH STAR RESEARCH GROUP

The current enforcement practices of the DEA are biases based. The racially-based culture is so powerful that members of the DEA lack the cognitive abilities to provide adequate and accurate law enforcement practices.  The race-based culture has created a practice of racial indifference towards African American pharmacists.  

These racial indifference behaviors are found within the DEA are the same ones expressed by a white supremacist.  Such levels of indifference influence are part of their standard operations and its law enforcement operational practices.  This agency cannot and should not be allowed to practice its race base enforcement.   

The DEA agencies culture is infused with racial biases. This culture infusion of indifference is modeled throughout the agency. Such levels of racial indifference influences DEA’s law enforcement operational practices which has placed a black eye on the professional men and women who serve with our law enforcement community around the world.

The culture of indifference has further subjugated the standard operational practices throughout the DEA. No other law enforcement agency in the world has had agents work in concert with the cartels. This agency through its practices of discrimination failed to adequately recognize that its has been compromised. These practices within the agency are so dysfunctional, that through learn behaviors employees find it easy to do wrong.

Discrimination is wrong

 The dangers the DEA has placed America within is presently uncrowned by the agency.   Within the assimilation theory, an agency will follow the cultural practices of wrongfulness and subordinate the laws to achieve personal objectives.         

This agency has gone far enough. The current practices are far below the standards of a professional law enforcement agency.   

According to ABC News Jim Mustian of Associated Press and the Baltimore Sun-Times Justin Fenton June 18, 2020;

The group of retired agents said in a statement sent to news organizations this week that Attorney General William Barr was out of touch with racial disparities that permeate not only local police departments but federal law enforcement. In fact Black DEA Agent filed a claim of gross discrimination and diabolical racism, in 1978 and it sat in the Federal Court System for 41 years, while incompetent, unqualified whites were freely promoted.

“This is a culture,” said Karl Colder, who previously oversaw the DEA’s Washington field division, served on the agency’s diversity committee, and was one of 76 former agents involved in drafting the statement. “You still don’t have African Americans in positions to really monitor and ensure things are equal.

Gary Tuggle, who was a special agent in charge of the Baltimore field office and served as interim Baltimore Police commissioner in 2018, said he thinks the problem has worsened in recent years.

Ernie Howard, who was the special agent in charge in Houston from 1997 to 2001, said there is “not an even playing field.”

“The DEA hasn’t had an African American female special agent in charge in years,” Tuggle said. “That’s ridiculous.”

June Werlow Rogers, who previously led the DEA’s New England field office from 2002 to 2008. “I’m really glad we’re at a point now where people are listening, but in order for us to change things, we’ve got to change minds and hearts.” 

“Rogers recalled while an agent in Baltimore she was pulled over and questioned despite showing her DEA credentials until a white DEA supervisor intervened and that a magistrate judge once confused her for a defendant in court”. (1),(2)

We can easily relate with former Agent Rogers and share our experience with privileged Judges.  Transcripts from January 28, 2020, DEA v Pronto Pharmacy LLC Tampa Florida. DOCKET 19-42, before Judge Mark D. Dowd held in Tampa, Fl.

MR. SISCO: No objection.

JUDGE DOWD: Thank you, Mr. Sisco.

JUDGE DOWD speaking to witness (DEA Richard James Albert): Mr. Clement, one question. When you served that document on the pharmacy, were these printed out for you at that time, or were these maintained at the pharmacy in a logbook, or do you know where these actually came from?

THE WITNESS (DEA Richard James Albert): They will be maintained in a logbook. But when I requested a subpoena, I would think that they made copies of them.

And one correction —

JUDGE DOWD: Okay. So, you weren’t there when they were produced, you came back for them?

THE WITNESS: (MR. ALBERT) “Well, they was — I either picked them up or they were sent to me”.

JUDGE DOWD: Okay.

THE WITNESS (DEA Richard James Albert): “But one correct.  I ‘m Mr. Albert. You called me Mr. Clement”.

JUDGE DOWD: “Oh, I’m sorry. Excuse me. Its old age creeping up. “Old Age,” 

If the Administrative Judge Mark Dowd is confused because of his age, then what levels of confusion was expressed in his attempts to enforce the laws. 

CONCLUSION  

Why must an agency continue to operate when it openly violated the laws.  We can see that the DEA is no longer an agency that practices and enforces the law effectively and correctly.  This agency has developed a system of support for the rightness of the agency and not for the rights to protect and serve the country.  If this agency is not reorganized or shut down, it will continue to present a clear and present danger to African Americans and America.  

BOTH HOUSE AND SENATE JUDICIARY COMMITTEES MUST GIVE OVERSIGHT, INVESTIGATE AND REORGANIZE THE DEA

THE FORM: RICHARD JAMES ALBERT DEA DIVERSION INVESTIGATOR AND THE DIVERSION OF THE TRUTH

Richard James Alpert Diversion of the Truth

” WE ARE PHARMACIST NOT DRUG DEALERS “

THE DARK SIDE OPERATIONS OF THE DEA

The testimony in this article is that of Richard James Alpert, a Diversion Investigator for the United States Drug Enforcement Agency. His title of Diversion Investigator is but a deception because he failed to do the obvious and what is required of an Investigative law enforcement officer; knowing the laws and ignoring truth:

JUDGE DOWD: “And is it your job, is it part of your investigation in these cases to reach out to the prescribing physicians to determine if there’s a legitimate medical reason to justify the prescription, the opioid or whatever that’s actually prescribed? Is that part of your investigation?

pastedGraphic.png
Richard Janes Alpert

DI ALPERT: ” That wasn’t part of my investigation. No sir.

ALL PRESCRIPTIONS ARE VALID

Pronto Pharmacy LLC, At Cost Pharmacy of Fort Myers, Fl, Gulf Med Pharmacy of Cape Coral, Florida, Oak Hill Pharmacy of Oak Hill, West Virginia to this date have neither violated nor broken any laws.  All control medications in these pharmacies have been dispensed according to CSA guidelines, and all prescriptions filled by these pharmacies were legally written by licensed medical/dental practitioners. 

According to Michael Krause Law Professor at the George Mason University, Scalia Law School, an article on December 27, 2021, Wall Street Journal titled, A Case Against Walmart Mocks Justice, “The federal government sues the chain for filling valid prescriptions in compliance with state law” (2)

” Under the Constitution’s Supremacy Clause, when there’s a contradiction between valid federal and state law, the former prevails. But there’s no federal law requiring that Walmart pharmacists refuse to fill prescriptions that state law requires them to fill. The Controlled Substances Act creates only two circumstances in which pharmacists commit a federal crime by filling facially valid prescriptions for controlled substances.

” First, if they “knowingly fill” a prescription that wasn’t issued by a doctor “in the usual course of professional treatment”—for instance, if a doctor hands out his entire Rx pad without examining any patient. Second, if they fill a prescription outside the “usual course of” pharmacy practice—for instance, if a “pill mill” dispenses opioids without checking the DEA number of the prescribing doctor. Not only isn’t Walmart being sued for such infractions; it has adopted innovative opioid-stewardship programs and worked with law enforcement agencies including the DEA to root out corrupt doctors.”

As written December 29, 2020, by the Wall Street Journal Editorial Board which was in a stark rebuke of the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) lawsuit filed in federal court in Delaware claims that:

” Walmart “failed to detect and report at least hundreds of thousands of suspicious orders” and that as a pharmacy it “unlawfully filled thousands upon thousands of invalid controlled-substance prescriptions.” These actions enabled opioid abuse and “helped fuel a national crisis,” the feds say. (1)

“The complaint further alleges:

“Violations of the Controlled Substances Act and its accompanying regulations, but it is really a 160-page exercise in scapegoating a company because it is well-known and has deep pockets. Walmart doesn’t push pills on opioid addicts. Its pharmacists fill valid prescriptions written by doctors who are licensed by their states and registered with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).” (1)

Similarly, in the actions of Pronto Pharmacy LLC, Tampa Florida the DOJ/ DEA has shown absolutely NO proof these prescriptions written by licensed practitioners and patients having been diagnosed with a disease condition are illegitimate. Neither the DOJ/DEA found any prescription medications were being diverted for non-medical use.

The Form

Both Walmart and Pronto Pharmacy had implemented internal procedures unique to their specific operations to detect fraudulent prescriptions. The Wall Street Journal Editorial Board further wrote on December 29, 2020:

“When Walmart’s pharmacists catch a prescription that appears fraudulent or forged, they are trained to refuse to fill it and document the incident. Walmart says it has passed tens of thousands of leads about suspicious prescriptions to state and federal law enforcement. It’s the job of the DEA and state medical boards to investigate and revoke doctors’ licenses and prescribing privileges if there’s wrongdoing.”

The Form: A Memorandum For Record

Pronto Pharmacy also had a required “Form” (MEMORANDUM FOR RECORD) in which every patient with any type of prescription had to fill out. The Form was used along with the National Prescription Drug Monitoring Program to screen for suspicious activity of control medications.

The Form was very successful in detecting fraudulent prescriptions and groups engaged in “pharmacy shopping,” for diversion purposes. People who were up to “no good” would turn around and leave when they were made aware of the Memorandum For Record “The Form,” and the consequences of not being truthful.

Richard James Alpert was knowledgeable of the Pronto Pharmacy “Form” and its purpose. Yet, Mr. Alpert chose not to consider “The Form” as a component of deterring suspicious activity. The dismissal of the purpose of the Pronto Pharmacy “Form” by Mr. Alpert is further indicative of his lack of completing a thorough investigation and failure to get at the truth.

As noted from Mr. Alpert’s court testimony, he in fact didn’t talk with any prescribing physicians or their patients. Richard James Alpert had been made aware and also had full knowledge, not one person who came to Pronto Pharmacy, got any prescriptions filled without filling out the Form and everyone received a consultation as well as paid a $25 one-time consultation fee.

THE FORM

The Form was evaluated by Pharmacist Daniel Buffington of Tampa, Florida and he agreed with Pronto Pharmacy implementing this Form as part of their prescription intake procedure. Buffington further felt Pronto Pharmacy should charge for this service as any other health professional would because it is a consultation; a memorandum for record. (5)

THE LORD INSTRUCTED PAUL DO NOT BE AFRAID

The violation of the Pronto Pharmacy Form did cause some people to go prison. More importantly, any suspected fraudulent activity identified and proven by the pharmacist was forwarded to their Attorney who communicated directly with the law enforcement department and/or State Attorney Offices. The Form was part of The Pronto Pharmacy Standard Operation Procedure as a mechanism in place to prevent diversion. The Form is a Memorandum For Record which could be used by any Court to identify the Patients intent.

  1. Who
  2. What
  3. When
  4. Where

Both the National Prescription Drug Monitoring Program and the Pronto Pharmacy Form were always used together to detect and report suspicious “unlawfully invalid controlled-substance prescriptions.” Both Diversion Investigator Richard James Alpert and so-called Pharmacist diversion expert Donald R. Sullivan were well aware of the Pronto Pharmacy Form and that all patients who came to Pronto Pharmacy were required to complete “The Form.”

FIGURES DON’T LIE BUT LIARS DO FIGURE

However, Dr. Sullivan was suspicious of the patient questionnaire used by the subject pharmacy. The questionnaire inquired whether the patient lived more than 100 miles from the pharmacy.  Dr. Sullivan opined that this reason was insufficient to resolve the red flags.

$25 CONSULTATION FEE

The questionnaire contained a certification to be made by the patient, certifying that “I am taking all of my medication prescribed.” Dr. Sullivan deemed this certification ineffectual in resolving the red flags of early fills and of diversion. A further statement by the patient that, “I am not selling any of my medication,” did not alleviate any concerns that the patient may have been diverting his medication. (5)

Indeed, Dr. Sullivan suspected the question exposed a subterfuge by the pharmacy, revealing the pharmacy believed patients were selling their medications, and the question was designed to relieve the pharmacy of any liability. If a pharmacist believes a patient is selling his/her medications, the pharmacist should not fill any further prescriptions for that patient.

RICHARD JAMES ALPERT AND DONALD SULLIVAN’S TESTIMONY OF BIAS AND FRAUD

Donald Sullivan’s testimony amounted to unsubstantiated fraudulent rubbish and bias. He nor Richard James Alpert took the time to investigate the origins of The Form. The Form was approved by the Pharmacy Attorney.

Dan Buffington, PharmD, MBA of Tampa, Florida has been selected as President-Elect of the Florida Pharmacy Association for 2020-2021. Dr. Buffington is President and Practice Director of Clinical Pharmacology Services in Tampa and is also on the faculty at the University of Florida College of Medicine and Pharmacy. (5)

He served for 6 years on the Board of Trustees of the American Pharmacists Association (APhA) and represents pharmacists on the American Medical Association’s Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) Editorial Panel. He served for 5 years as a medication safety expert with the US Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services on the Healthcare Reform team in the CMS Innovation Center and the Center for Clinical Standards and Quality (CCSQ) focused on improving health outcomes, patient safety, and alternate payment models. (5)

Thus, the testimony of both Donal Sullivan and Richard James Alpert demonstrates their gross incompetence and failure to investigate. If these two would have investigated, they would have easily found the people of Pronto Pharmacy LLC always adhered to the rules, regulations, and laws which govern pharmacy.

We demand that the CSA certificate of Pronto Pharmacy LLC., be returned unrestricted, and both Alpert and Sullivan be removed from employment from the Federal Government for fraudulent misrepresentation and abuse of authority.

JUDGE DOWD: And is it your job, is it part of your investigation in these cases to reach out to the prescribing physicians to determine if there’s a legitimate medical reason to justify the prescription, the opioid or whatever that’s actually prescribed? Is that part of your investigation?

Richard Janes Alpert

DI ALPERT: That wasn’t part of my investigation. No sir.

Mr.Sisco: Okay. So you talked to the patients, right?

DI Alpert: Did I talk to the patients?

Mr.Sisco: Yes, sir.

DI Alpert: No, sir

Richard james Alpert

Mr.Sisco: You didn’t talk to the patients?

DI Alpert: No, sir

CROSS EXAMINATION

BY MR. SISCO

Q. Good morning, Mr. Albert

A. Good morning.

Q. We’ve met before on a number of occasions, is that right?

A. Yes, sir.

Q. And in the 12 weeks of training that you received as a diversion investigator you were taught to be thorough in your investigation, correct?

A. Yes, sir

Q. And to gather as much information as you can to support an allegation that you were investigating, correct?

RICHARD JAMES ALBERT DEA DIVERSION INVESTIGATOR

A. Yes, sir

Q. And in this case, you followed that training, is that correct?

A. Yes, sir

Q. So it was important for you to make sure that everything that you did, that you documented, was an accurate refection of your investigation efforts, right?

A. Yes, sir

Q. All right, And you ran down available leads

A. What are you referring to?

Q. Well, you know I presume that as part of your investigation you looked to see whether there was any information that was contrary to other information you’d come up with in the case, right?

A. I’m not sure exactly what you’re referring to.

Q. You would want to know if there was some information that was out there that differed from the conclusions that you’d reached, right?

A. I’m not sure what you’re asking as far as…

Q. Well, let’s make this basic.

A. Okay.

EXPOSING THE DEA’S FRAUDULENT RED FLAG ANALYSIS

DEA Diversion Investigator, Richard Albert prepared a warrant based on red flags that Pronto Pharmacy engaged in manufacturing-controlled substances. This was an assumption that a crime was committed within the Pronto Pharmacy.  Pronto Pharmacy is a licensed pharmaceutical company by law that can compound medications. Yet, through the process of creative deceptive prosecutions, the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) has sidestepped Constitutional issues based on a lack of legal standing.

As further written December 29, 2020, the Wall Street Journal Editorial Board in a stark rebuke of the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) lawsuit filed in federal court in Delaware claims that: The Walmart DOJ complaint also includes:

” more than 190 mentions of “red flags” about suspicious opioid prescriptions. It claims Walmart often didn’t adequately resolve them and sometimes knowingly filled illegitimate prescriptions despite the warnings. But Walmart notes in its lawsuit that the Controlled Substances Act “and its implementing regulations do not include the concept of red flagslet alone identify any particular factors as a red flag.”

“The feds try to side-step this problem by claiming that, under the Controlled Substances Act and regulations, “the pharmacist’s conduct must adhere to the usual course of his or her professional practice as a pharmacist.” The complaint argues that catching and resolving “red flags” for opioid prescriptions is “a well-recognized responsibility of a pharmacist in the professional practice of pharmacy,” so “failing to fulfill this responsibility” is a violation of the federal law.”

However, the Wall Street Journal Editorial Board further points out:

All of this raises constitutional issues based on a lack of legal standing. A negligence claim like the one alleged here is supposed to have a specific party claiming a specific injury caused by someone specific. Those are typically claims by one private party against another. The government can sue for violations of law, not because someone was negligent. The government’s claims of Controlled Substances Act violations are so general that they seem contrived to add some violation of the law.(1)

” In effect, DOJ is asking the federal court to overrule state law in favor of informal federal guidance and a vague notion of pharmaceutical best practices. This harassment was typical of the Obama era but it’s especially disappointing from the Trump Justice Department. The Biden Administration will be happy to run with this prosecutorial abuse.”(1)

The Six “Rights”

The six medication rights serve as the foundation of safe medication administration. The RIGHT PATIENT must be given the RIGHT MEDICATION in the RIGHT DOSE by the RIGHT ROUTE at the RIGHT TIME. The pharmacist must also ensure that the prescription is supported by the RIGHT DOCUMENTATION.

This involves cross-checking the prescriber’s order against the patient’s history and medical information to identify potential drug-drug, drug-disease, or drug-allergy interactions. Although electronic prescribing technology can help detect errors in medication names, dosing, and frequency, it is not foolproof. The pharmacist should verify that all elements of the order are correct (Brown, 2016).

Once the medication ordered is verified as appropriate for the patient and appropriately prescribed, it is the pharmacist’s responsibility to ensure that the correct medication in the right form and dose is provided to the patient at the appropriate time. With the vast array of drugs on the market, it is not possible for a prescriber or a pharmacist to be personally familiar with the uses, dosing, side-effects, potential interactions, and other implications of every drug.

If a pharmacist is unfamiliar with a medication, he or she must consult a drug reference before dispensing the medication.

These guidelines appear on nearly every State Governing boards of Pharmacist and Pharmacy-Technician throughout the United States of America.

RETURN TO THE CROSS-EXAMINATION

BY MR. SISCO

Q. Okay? What you did was, if there was information that was in your possession that was relevant to this investigation, you wanted to make sure that you investigated that information completely; is that right?

A. Yes.

Q. Okay. So in this case you identified a number of patients whose prescription that you found to be– to raise red flags; right?

A. Correct.

Q. All right. And that’s what caused you to talk to your superiors about, you know, initiating the show cause process and retaining an expert; right?

A. Correct.

Q. Okay. So you talked to the patients, right?

A. Did I talk to the patients?

Q. Yes, sir.

A. No, sir

Q. You didn’t talk to the patients?

A. No, sir

Q. Well, wouldn’t it have been important for you to discuss with the patients whether or not they had an explanation for why they traveled to Pronto Pharmacy, for instance?

A. You could assume that, yes.

Q. Well, but you never attempted to speak with them; correct?

A. No

Q. So specifically the 11 patients that were here, you’ve spoken with them?

A. No, sir

Q. Okay. You had some concerns as a diversion investigator regarding the legitimacy of prescriptions that were issued to those patients; is that true?

A. Not necessarily the legitimacy or the actual prescription.

Q. Okay. So that wasn’t an issue that you were concerned about?

A. I’m not saying that’s not an issue. but I’m saying, not necessarily, that that was just was the main thing.

Q. All right. So you went and you had the prescriptions, right?

A. Correct.

Q. So for those 11 patients that are identified in the orders to show cause, right?

A. Correct.

RICHARD JAMES ALBERT WITH OTHER AGENTS RAID of PRONTO PHARMACY 8/29/2019

Q. And that’s part of the information that you reviewed, either in the spreadsheets or by looking at the original prescriptions, you’re very familiar with that; right?

A. Correct.

Q. And so – –

JUDGE DOWD: Let me ask a question.

Mr. Albert, in looking at prescriptions what was your focus? Was it that there was a name on the prescription; that it was facially legitimate, or did you have any interest in looking into the prescription?

THE WITNESS: So when I looked at the prescription, of course I make sure it has all the information on it. What triggered suspicion was is that the prescription was written for tablets, but then on the back it was filled in capsules. So that intrigued my interest on those prescriptions.

JUDGE DOWD: And is it your job, is it part of your investigation in these cases to reach out to the prescribing physicians to determine if there’s a legitimate medical reason to justify the prescription, the opioid or whatever that’s actually prescribed? Is that part of your investigation?

THE WITNESS: That wasn’t part of my investigation. No sir.

JUDGE DOWD: Okay. I’m sorry. Go ahead, Mr. Sisco.

MR. SISCO: Well, Judge, you’re stealing my thunder.

JUDGE DOWD: Sorry. I just want to make that clear, because you asked have you looked into the prescription. And I want to know if it was just facially or if it was the history of the prescriber or whatnot.

BY MR. SISCO:

Q. So Investigator Albert, you did not go and talk to any of the prescribers; is that correct?

A. Correct.

Richard Alpert

Q. So even though you had a concern about how these prescriptions were filled, capsules as opposed to tablets, you never talked to the prescribers about whether or not the authorized that; is that correct?

A. No, I did not.

Richard James Alpert

Q. That would be important information to have, wouldn’t it?

A. My best answer is yes and no.

JUDGE DOWD: Could you- – that doesn’t help us. Could you explain your answer?

THE WITNESS: Because in my investigation I do not necessarily have to talk to the prescriber based on the investigation that I perform.

BY MR. SISCO:

Q. Well, you don’t have to but you could. There’s nothing preventing you from doing that, right?

A. No. There’s nothing preventing me.

Q. All right. And so if you really want to get to the truth of the matter, what you do is you talk to the doctor and say; well, doctor, did you authorize the substitution of capsule for tablets on behalf of tis patient, right?

A. Yes.

Q. That’s kind of a simple, direct and straightforward way to get to the heart of this issue, right?

A. Yes.

Q. And you didn’t do it?

A. Well, I didn’t do it on one particular doctor because he was under investigation already.

Q. Okay. Then you went to Pronto Pharmacy, you observed, starting in September 17, you observed, that they were building out a sterile compounding room?

JANUARY 29, 2020 TAMPA FL.

A. I observed a compounding room, yes sir.

JUDGE DOWD: And what is that? How did you know that was a compounding room? What distinguishes a compounding room from any other room in a pharmacy?

THE WITNESS: So when you go in the pharmacy, this particular pharmacy, and you walk down the hallway and you go around, it’s a whole other room. And they have what appears to be like a laboratory, if you will.

JUDGE DOWD: Like a clean room?

THE WITNESS: Yes. Kind of a clean room. So it’s a big, enclosed area where you have a door to go in then I guess where the pharmacist would do his compounding.

JUDGE DOWD: All right, thank you.

BY MR. SISCO:

Q. And when you walked in the lobby, the entrance area of Pronto Pharmacy there’s a number of signs on the wall; is that correct?

A. Yes.

Q. There’s a sign, for instance, that tells patients that the pharmacist is available for consultations with them, right?

A. I’m not sure, sir.

Q. Okay. And there’s a sign that talks about the substitution of generic equivalents, correct?

A. I’m not sure.

Q. Well, you’re aware that that’s required by Florida statutes, right? Is that part of your training?

A. Thats not part of our training, no sir.

Q. Okay. So you were concerned – _ I think you used the word “suspicious,” because of the distance some of these patients traveled in order to get to Pronto Pharmacy; is that right?

A. Yes, sir

Q. So with regards to that issue, you wanton to Google and tried to figure out how far it was?

A. Yes, Sir.

DOCTORS HAVE BECOME EASY ENFORCEMENT TARGETS BECAUSE THEY DON’T RETURN FIRE WITH ROCKET PROPELLED GRENADES OR M-50 MACHINE GUNS

RICHARD JAMES ALPERT

SIMPLY

YOUR DOCTORS AND PHARMACIST DON’T CARRY ROCKET LAUNCHERS 

We are not drug dealers

The DEA has lost the “War on Drugs” with the foreign cartels because these fellows fight back with AK-47’s, Rocket Propelled Grenades, Glock-9 handguns something your physician or pharmacist will never do. So doctors and pharmacists make easier enforcement targets and it is much safer for the agency to attack them.

These health practitioners are not drug dealers but DEA Diversion Investigators like Richard James Alpert have the mindset of a serial torturer. They have creatively misinterpreted and manipulated guidelines to target, intimidate, abuse and extort, physicians, pharmacists, drug chain stores, drug manufacturers because healthcare providers don’t shoot back with real armed firepower weaponry like the drug cartels.

pharmacy-blurred-mp4“DEA DAMAGE AND DISABLE SECURITY CAMERAS”

The DEA has learned the rewards are even better against doctors, dentists, pharmacists, manufacturers, or hospitals by the uses of RICCO, through Justice Department intimidations.  Further, the DEA specifically has its own Court System ( that Operates as a Kangaroo Court) which does not adhere to Federal Rules of Civil Procedures.   Their Judges answer solely to the domain of the DEA Administrator.

MARIJUANA WAS THEIR CASH COW

The prosecution of marijuana (MJ) offenders had been the DEA’s cash cow from its inception which was then used to harvest hundreds of thousands of people, specifically, young black males into the prison system. As states began to allow the legalized use, lift restrictions, and decriminalize MJ the DEA’s cash cow slowly has dried up.

While Geo-politically, the drug cartels, many of whom have cleverly aligned themselves with Government Nations, often whose attitudes are of “turning a blind eye” to illegal euphoric drug medication analogs. Many of the National Governments are allied and major trade partners with the United States, and notwithstanding the facts, these Cartels are better armed.

So, the problem and enforcement of illicit productions of opioid analogs and other illicit euphoric derivatives have become far more complex.

WHY CONGRESS MUST INVESTIGATE THE ABUSES OF THE DEA AND SHUT THEM DOWN

Thus, DEA has been engaged in the practice of extortion and governmental racketeering against healthcare providers, Walmart, CVS Omnicare Inc., Walgreens, Purdue Pharma, Gulf Med Pharmacy, At Cost Pharmacy, George Tenet MD., Oak Hill Hometown Pharmacy, Lincourt Pharmacy in order to promote the good grace of Congress to fund the importance of this agency and its activities.

We Demand hearings from Congress and oversight as the activity of the DEA affects the lives of all of America during this Covid pandemic by creating disparity and shortages and the majority of the time this has been done by race.

RICHARD JAMES ALPERT

CONCLUSION

Mr. Richard James Alpert has not done the obvious, which is to investigate as required by any law enforcement investigator. The other more troubling aspects are that he (nor Donald Sullivan) never spoke with the prescribing physicians because his agenda as a Diversion Investigator was to intimidate and to close Pronto Pharmacy LLC by ignoring the truth. Richard James Alpert was further angry because the owner of Pronto Pharmacy understood their constitutional rights and knew of the deceptions Alpert was portraying. (3)

There is no finding of facts that supports Pronto Pharmacy as an “imminent danger.” There are no facts to support Pronto Pharmacy as illegally manufacturing,  and no facts to support continuing the Immediate Suspension Order (ISO). The DEA’s intent was to exact financial hardship on Pronto Pharmacy and its owners. 

The actions of the DEA and DI Albert were clearly malicious and were targeted at shutting Pronto Pharmacy down at whatever the cost. Richard James Alpert’s intent was to ignore any rules, laws, standard medical or pharmacy protocols and use his authority to facilitate the Diversion of The Truth. (3),(4),(5)


CONGRESS MUST TAKE ACTION NOW, TO STOP THESE DEA ABUSES

THE DARK SIDE OPERATIONS OF THE DEA

The testimony in this article is that of Richard James Alpert, a Diversion Investigator for the United States Drug Enforcement Agency. His title of Diversion Investigator is but a deception because he failed to do the obvious and what is required of an Investigative law enforcement officer; knowing the laws and ignoring truth:

JUDGE DOWD: “And is it your job, is it part of your investigation in these cases to reach out to the prescribing physicians to determine if there’s a legitimate medical reason to justify the prescription, the opioid or whatever that’s actually prescribed? Is that part of your investigation?

Richard Janes Alpert

DI ALPERT: That wasn’t part of my investigation. No sir.

ALL PRESCRIPTIONS ARE VALID

Pronto Pharmacy LLC, At Cost Pharmacy of Fort Myers, Fl, Gulf Med Pharmacy of Cape Coral, Florida, Oak Hill Pharmacy of Oak Hill, West Virginia to this date have neither violated nor broken any laws.  All control medications in these pharmacies have been dispensed according to CSA guidelines, and all prescriptions filled by these pharmacies were legally written by licensed medical/dental practitioners. 

According to Michael Krause Law Professor at the George Mason University, Scalia Law School, an article on December 27, 2021, Wall Street Journal titled, A Case Against Walmart Mocks Justice, “The federal government sues the chain for filling valid prescriptions in compliance with state law” (2)

” Under the Constitution’s Supremacy Clause, when there’s a contradiction between valid federal and state law, the former prevails. But there’s no federal law requiring that Walmart pharmacists refuse to fill prescriptions that state law requires them to fill. The Controlled Substances Act creates only two circumstances in which pharmacists commit a federal crime by filling facially valid prescriptions for controlled substances.

” First, if they “knowingly fill” a prescription that wasn’t issued by a doctor “in the usual course of professional treatment”—for instance, if a doctor hands out his entire Rx pad without examining any patient. Second, if they fill a prescription outside the “usual course of” pharmacy practice—for instance, if a “pill mill” dispenses opioids without checking the DEA number of the prescribing doctor. Not only isn’t Walmart being sued for such infractions; it has adopted innovative opioid-stewardship programs and worked with law enforcement agencies including the DEA to root out corrupt doctors.”

As written December 29, 2020, by the Wall Street Journal Editorial Board which was in a stark rebuke of the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) lawsuit filed in federal court in Delaware claims that: 

” Walmart “failed to detect and report at least hundreds of thousands of suspicious orders” and that as a pharmacy it “unlawfully filled thousands upon thousands of invalid controlled-substance prescriptions.” These actions enabled opioid abuse and “helped fuel a national crisis,” the feds say. (1)

“The complaint further alleges: 

“Violations of the Controlled Substances Act and its accompanying regulations, but it is really a 160-page exercise in scapegoating a company because it is well-known and has deep pockets. Walmart doesn’t push pills on opioid addicts. Its pharmacists fill valid prescriptions written by doctors who are licensed by their states and registered with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).” (1)

Similarly, in the actions of Pronto Pharmacy LLC, Tampa Florida the DOJ/ DEA has shown absolutely NO proof these prescriptions written by licensed practitioners and patients having been diagnosed with a disease condition are illegitimate. Neither the DOJ/DEA found any prescription medications were being diverted for non-medical use. 

THE FORM 

Both Walmart and Pronto Pharmacy had implemented internal procedures unique to their specific operations to detect fraudulent prescriptions. The Wall Street Journal Editorial Board further wrote on December 29, 2020:

“When Walmart’s pharmacists catch a prescription that appears fraudulent or forged, they are trained to refuse to fill it and document the incident. Walmart says it has passed tens of thousands of leads about suspicious prescriptions to state and federal law enforcement. It’s the job of the DEA and state medical boards to investigate and revoke doctors’ licenses and prescribing privileges if there’s wrongdoing.”

THE FORM: A MEMORANDUM FOR RECORD

Pronto Pharmacy also had a required “Form” (MEMORANDUM FOR RECORD) in which every patient with any type of prescription had to fill out. The Form was used along with the National Prescription Drug Monitoring Program to screen for suspicious activity of control medications. 

The Form was very successful in detecting fraudulent prescriptions and groups engaged in “pharmacy shopping,” for diversion purposes. People who were up to “no good” would turn around and leave when they were made aware of the Memorandum For Record “The Form,” and the consequences of not being truthful.

Richard James Alpert was knowledgeable of the Pronto Pharmacy “Form” and its purpose. Yet, Mr. Alpert chose not to consider “The Form” as a component of deterring suspicious activity. The dismissal of the purpose of the Pronto Pharmacy “Form” by Mr. Alpert is further indicative of his lack of completing a thorough investigation and failure to get at the truth. 

As noted from Mr. Alpert’s court testimony, he in fact didn’t talk with any prescribing physicians or their patients. Richard James Alpert had been made aware and also had full knowledge, not one person who came to Pronto Pharmacy, got any prescriptions filled without filling out the Form and everyone received a consultation as well as paid a $25 one-time consultation fee. 

THE FORM

The Form was evaluated by Pharmacist Daniel Buffington of Tampa, Florida and he agreed with Pronto Pharmacy implementing this Form as part of their prescription intake procedure. Buffington further felt Pronto Pharmacy should charge for this service as any other health professional would because it is a consultation; a MEMORANDUM FOR RECORD. (5)https://videopress.com/embed/gelhCSK4?preloadContent=metadata&hd=1THE LORD INSTRUCTED PAUL DO NOT BE AFRAID

The violation of the Pronto Pharmacy Form did cause some people to go prison. More importantly, any suspected fraudulent activity identified and proven by the pharmacist was forwarded to their Attorney who communicated directly with the law enforcement department and/or State Attorney Offices. The Form was part of The Pronto Pharmacy Standard Operation Procedure as a mechanism in place to prevent diversion. The Form is a Memorandum For Record which could be used by any Court to identify the Patients intent.

  1. Who
  2. What
  3. When 
  4. Where

Both the National Prescription Drug Monitoring Program and the Pronto Pharmacy Form were always used together to detect and report suspicious “unlawfully invalid controlled-substance prescriptions.” Both Diversion Investigator Richard James Alpert and so-called Pharmacist diversion expert Donald R. Sullivan were well aware of the Pronto Pharmacy Form and that all patients who came to Pronto Pharmacy were required to complete “The Form.” 

FIGURES DON’T LIE BUT LIARS DO FIGURE

However, Dr. Sullivan was suspicious of the patient questionnaire used by the subject pharmacy. The questionnaire inquired whether the patient lived more than 100 miles from the pharmacy.  Dr. Sullivan opined that this reason was insufficient to resolve the red flags. 

$25 CONSULTATION FEE

The questionnaire contained a certification to be made by the patient, certifying that “I am taking all of my medication prescribed.” Dr. Sullivan deemed this certification ineffectual in resolving the red flags of early fills and of diversion. A further statement by the patient that, “I am not selling any of my medication,” did not alleviate any concerns that the patient may have been diverting his medication. (5)

Indeed, Dr. Sullivan suspected the question exposed a subterfuge by the pharmacy, revealing the pharmacy believed patients were selling their medications, and the question was designed to relieve the pharmacy of any liability. If a pharmacist believes a patient is selling his/her medications, the pharmacist should not fill any further prescriptions for that patient.

RICHARD JAMES ALPERT AND DONALD SULLIVAN’S TESTIMONY OF BIAS AND FRAUD

Donald Sullivan’s testimony amounted to unsubstantiated fraudulent rubbish and bias. He nor Richard James Alpert took the time to investigate the origins of The Form. The Form was approved by the Pharmacy Attorney. 

Dan Buffington, PharmD, MBA of Tampa, Florida has been selected as President-Elect of the Florida Pharmacy Association for 2020-2021. Dr. Buffington is President and Practice Director of Clinical Pharmacology Services in Tampa and is also on the faculty at the University of Florida College of Medicine and Pharmacy. (5)

He served for 6 years on the Board of Trustees of the American Pharmacists Association (APhA) and represents pharmacists on the American Medical Association’s Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) Editorial Panel. He served for 5 years as a medication safety expert with the US Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services on the Healthcare Reform team in the CMS Innovation Center and the Center for Clinical Standards and Quality (CCSQ) focused on improving health outcomes, patient safety, and alternate payment models. (5)

DONALD SULLIVAN

Thus, the testimony of both Donal Sullivan and Richard James Alpert demonstrates their gross incompetence and failure to investigate. If these two would have investigated, they would have easily found the people of Pronto Pharmacy LLC always adhered t to the rules, regulations, and laws which govern pharmacy. 

RICHARD J. ALPERT

We demand that the CSA certificate of Pronto Pharmacy LLC., be returned unrestricted, and both Alpert and Sullivan be removed from employment from the Federal Government for fraudulent misrepresentation and abuse of authority.

CROSS EXAMINATION

BY MR. SISCO

Q. Good morning, Mr. Albert

A. Good morning.

Q. We’ve met before on a number of occasions, is that right?

A. Yes, sir.

Q. And in the 12 weeks of training that you received as a diversion investigator you were taught to be thorough in your investigation, correct?

A. Yes, sir

Q. And to gather as much information as you can to support an allegation that you were investigating, correct?

RICHARD JAMES ALBERT DEA DIVERSION INVESTIGATOR

A. Yes, sir

Q. And in this case, you followed that training, is that correct?

A. Yes, sir

Q. So it was important for you to make sure that everything that you did, that you documented, was an accurate refection of your investigation efforts, right?

A. Yes, sir

Q. All right, And you ran down available leads

A. What are you referring to?

Q. Well, you know I presume that as part of your investigation you looked to see whether there was any information that was contrary to other information you’d come up with in the case, right?

A. I’m not sure exactly what you’re referring to.

Q. You would want to know if there was some information that was out there that differed from the conclusions that you’d reached, right?

A. I’m not sure what you’re asking as far as…

Q. Well, let’s make this basic.

A. Okay.

EXPOSING THE DEA’S FRAUDULENT RED FLAG ANALYSIS

The DEA agent Richard Albert prepared a warrant that “opinion based on a red flag that Pronto Pharmacy engaged in manufacturing-controlled substances. This is an assumption that a crime was committed within the Pronto Pharmacy.  Pronto Pharmacy is a licensed pharmaceutical company by law that can compound medications. 

As further written December 29, 2020, by the Wall Street Journal Editorial Board in a stark rebuke of the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) lawsuit filed in federal court in Delaware claims that: The Walmart DOJ complaint also includes:

” more than 190 mentions of “red flags” about suspicious opioid prescriptions. It claims Walmart often didn’t adequately resolve them and sometimes knowingly filled illegitimate prescriptions despite the warnings. But Walmart notes in its lawsuit that the Controlled Substances Act “and its implementing regulations do not include the concept of red flagslet alone identify any particular factors as a red flag.”

“The feds try to side-step this problem by claiming that, under the Controlled Substances Act and regulations, “the pharmacist’s conduct must adhere to the usual course of his or her professional practice as a pharmacist.” The complaint argues that catching and resolving “red flags” for opioid prescriptions is “a well-recognized responsibility of a pharmacist in the professional practice of pharmacy,” so “failing to fulfill this responsibility” is a violation of the federal law.”

However, the Wall Street Journal Editorial Board further points out: 

” All of this raises constitutional issues based on a lack of legal standing. A negligence claim like the one alleged here is supposed to have a specific party claiming a specific injury caused by someone specific. Those are typically claims by one private party against another. The government can sue for violations of law, not because someone was negligent. The government’s claims of Controlled Substances Act violations are so general that they seem contrived to add some violation of the law.(1)

” In effect, DOJ is asking the federal court to overrule state law in favor of informal federal guidance and a vague notion of pharmaceutical best practices. This harassment was typical of the Obama era but it’s especially disappointing from the Trump Justice Department. The Biden Administration will be happy to run with this prosecutorial abuse.”(1)

THE SIX “RIGHTS”

The six medication rights serve as the foundation of safe medication administration. The RIGHT PATIENT must be given the RIGHT MEDICATION in the RIGHT DOSE by the RIGHT ROUTE at the RIGHT TIME. The pharmacist must also ensure that the prescription is supported by the RIGHT DOCUMENTATION

This involves cross-checking the prescriber’s order against the patient’s history and medical information to identify potential drug-drug, drug-disease, or drug-allergy interactions. Although electronic prescribing technology can help detect errors in medication names, dosing, and frequency, it is not foolproof. The pharmacist should verify that all elements of the order are correct (Brown, 2016).

Once the medication ordered is verified as appropriate for the patient and appropriately prescribed, it is the pharmacist’s responsibility to ensure that the correct medication in the right form and dose is provided to the patient at the appropriate time. With the vast array of drugs on the market, it is not possible for a prescriber or a pharmacist to be personally familiar with the uses, dosing, side-effects, potential interactions, and other implications of every drug. (

If a pharmacist is unfamiliar with a medication, he or she must consult a drug reference before dispensing the medication.https://videopress.com/embed/gdUg8wup?preloadContent=metadata&hd=1DR. RICHARD WYNN, PHARMACIST, PROFESSOR OF PHARMACOLOGY, UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND DENTAL

These guidelines appear on nearly every State Governing boards of Pharmacist and Pharmacy-Technician throughout the United States of America.

RETURN TO THE CROSS-EXAMINATION

BY MR. SISCO

Q. Okay? What you did was, if there was information that was in your possession that was relevant to this investigation, you wanted to make sure that you investigated that information completely; is that right?

A. Yes.

Q. Okay. So in this case you identified a number of patients whose prescription that you found to be– to raise red flags; right?

A. Correct.

Q. All right. And that’s what caused you to talk to your superiors about, you know, initiating the show cause process and retaining an expert; right?

A. Correct.

Q. Okay. So you talked to the patients, right?

A. Did I talk to the patients?

Q. Yes, sir.

A. No, sir

Q. You didn’t talk to the patients?

A. No, sir

Q. Well, wouldn’t it have been important for you to discuss with the patients whether or not they had an explanation for why they traveled to Pronto Pharmacy, for instance?

A. You could assume that, yes. 

Q. Well, but you never attempted to speak with them; correct?

A. No

Q. So specifically the 11 patients that were here, you’ve spoken with them?

A. No, sir

Q. Okay. You had some concerns as a diversion investigator regarding the legitimacy of prescriptions that were issued to those patients; is that true?

A. Not necessarily the legitimacy or the actual prescription.

Q. Okay. So that wasn’t an issue that you were concerned about?

A. I’m not saying that’s not an issue. but I’m saying, not necessarily, that that was just was the main thing.

Q. All right. So you went and you had the prescriptions, right?

A. Correct.

Q. So for those 11 patients that are identified in the orders to show cause, right?

A. Correct.

RICHARD JAMES ALBERT WITH OTHER AGENTS RAID of PRONTO PHARMACY 8/29/2019

Q. And that’s part of the information that you reviewed, either in the spreadsheets or by looking at the original prescriptions, you’re very familiar with that; right?

A. Correct.

Q. And so – –

JUDGE DOWD: Let me ask a question. 

Mr. Albert, in looking at prescriptions what was your focus? Was it that there was a name on the prescription; that it was facially legitimate, or did you have any interest in looking into the prescription?

THE WITNESS: So when I looked at the prescription, of course I make sure it has all the information on it. What triggered suspicion was is that the prescription was written for tablets, but then on the back it was filled in capsules. So that intrigued my interest on those prescriptions.

JUDGE DOWD: And is it your job, is it part of your investigation in these cases to reach out to the prescribing physicians to determine if there’s a legitimate medical reason to justify the prescription, the opioid or whatever that’s actually prescribed? Is that part of your investigation?

THE WITNESS: That wasn’t part of my investigation. No sir.

JUDGE DOWD: Okay. I’m sorry. Go ahead, Mr. Sisco.

MR. SISCO: Well, Judge, you’re stealing my thunder.

JUDGE DOWD: Sorry. I just want to make that clear, because you asked have you looked into the prescription. And I want to know if it was just facially or if it was the history of the prescriber or whatnot.

BY MR. SISCO:

Q. So Investigator Albert, you did not go and talk to any of the prescribers; is that correct?

A. Correct.

Richard Alpert

Q. So even though you had a concern about how these prescriptions were filled, capsules as opposed to tablets, you never talked to the prescribers about whether or not the authorized that; is that correct?

A. No, I did not.

Richard James Alpert

Q. That would be important information to have, wouldn’t it?

A. My best answer is yes and no.

JUDGE DOWD: Could you- – that doesn’t help us. Could you explain your answer?

THE WITNESS: Because in my investigation I do not necessarily have to talk to the prescriber based on the investigation that I perform.

BY MR. SISCO:

Q. Well, you don’t have to but you could. There’s nothing preventing you from doing that, right?

A. No. There’s nothing preventing me.

Q. All right. And so if you really want to get to the truth of the matter, what you do is you talk to the doctor and say; well, doctor, did you authorize the substitution of capsule for tablets on behalf of tis patient, right?

A. Yes.

Q. That’s kind of a simple, direct and straightforward way to get to the heart of this issue, right?

A. Yes.

Q. And you didn’t do it?

A. Well, I didn’t do it on one particular doctor because he was under investigation already.

Q. Okay. Then you went to Pronto Pharmacy, you observed, starting in September 17, you observed, that they were building out a sterile compounding room?

JANUARY 29, 2020 TAMPA FL.

A. I observed a compounding room, yes sir.

JUDGE DOWD: And what is that? How did you know that was a compounding room? What distinguishes a compounding room from any other room in a pharmacy?

THE WITNESS: So when you go in the pharmacy, this particular pharmacy, and you walk down the hallway and you go around, it’s a whole other room. And they have what appears to be like a laboratory, if you will.

JUDGE DOWD: Like a clean room?

THE WITNESS: Yes. Kind of a clean room. So it’s a big, enclosed area where you have a door to go in then I guess where the pharmacist would do his compounding.

JUDGE DOWD: All right, thank you.

BY MR. SISCO:

Q. And when you walked in the lobby, the entrance area of Pronto Pharmacy there’s a number of signs on the wall; is that correct?

A. Yes.

Q. There’s a sign, for instance, that tells patients that the pharmacist is available for consultations with them, right?

A. I’m not sure, sir.

Q. Okay. And there’s a sign that talks about the substitution of generic equivalents, correct?

A. I’m not sure.

Q. Well, you’re aware that that’s required by Florida statutes, right? Is that part of your training?

A. Thats not part of our training, no sir.

Q. Okay. So you were concerned – _ I think you used the word “suspicious,” because of the distance some of these patients traveled in order to get to Pronto Pharmacy; is that right?

A. Yes, sir

Q. So with regards to that issue, you wanton to Google and tried to figure out how far it was?

A. Yes, Sir.

RICHARD JAMES ALPERT

COMPOUNDING AND THE TESTIMONY OF DIVERSION INVESTIGATOR ALPERT: 

DIVERSION INVESTIGATOR RICHARD JAMES ALBERT

RICHARD JAMES ALBERT DEA DIVERSION INVESTIGATOR

So, when Diversion Investigator Richard James Alpert, in May of 2019 returned to Pronto Pharmacy for his 5th visit, make no mistake, his actions as directed by his handlers, Susan Langston, DEA Divisional Director State of Florida located in Miami, Florida Aimee Hickerson Diversion Supervisor, Florida assigned to Pharmacies, John Beerbower Esq., United States  Attorney for the DEA. was laser-targeted on finally disrupting, dismantling and destroying the business of Pronto Pharmacy LLC.  In a similar manner as Superior Pharmacy of Tampa, Florida, or in West Virginia, Oak Hill Home Town Pharmacy, Oak Hill, WV.

DEA’s argument has been Pronto Pharmacy compounding of control medications was concluded as manufacturing and Pronto Pharmacy needed a separate manufacturing registration. This was because their retail registration license does not cover for manufacturing. The chart of guidelines more than contradicts all DEA assertions made by both DI Albert and his handlers against Pronto Pharmacy. 

DI Alpert of DEA stated in his testimony, he did not know state law or federal law as it pertains to Pronto Pharmacy LLC alleged in order to show cause. DI Alpert further stated he use a form default letter which is located in DEA’s Computer system to write the Order to Show Cause which he had started in April, 20019, 3-months prior to their raid of August 29, 2019.

The jurisdiction on who defines compounding or manufacturing is that of the FDA. Had DI Alpert consulted with the FDA, or understood the rules on pharmaceuticals perhaps the outcome would be far different. Had  DI Alpert reviewed the DOH Administrative finding of 2018 and our response he may have been better educated in the subject matter as to not proceeded with a criminal complaint. See administration 20017-18 case: ph201705581 also, Atty dale Sisco response and DOH, findings.

FLORIDA 64B16-27.700 DEFINITION OF COMPOUNDING

“Compounding” is the professional act by a pharmacist or other practitioner authorized by law, employing the science or art of any branch of the profession of pharmacy, incorporating ingredients to create a finished product for dispensing to a patient or for administration by a practitioner or the practitioner’s agent; and shall specifically include the professional act of preparing a unique finished product containing any ingredient or device defined by Sections 465.003(7) and (8), F.S. 

The term also includes the preparation of nuclear pharmaceuticals and diagnostic kits incident to use of such nuclear pharmaceuticals. The term “commercially available products,” as used in this section, means any medicinal product as defined by Sections 465.003(7) and (8), F.S., that are legally distributed in the State of Florida by a drug manufacturer or wholesaler.

(1) Compounding includes:

(a) The preparation of drugs or devices in anticipation of prescriptions based on routine, regularly observed prescribing patterns.

(b) The preparation pursuant to a prescription of drugs or devices which are not commercially available.

(c) The preparation of commercially available products from bulk when the prescribing practitioner has prescribed the compounded product on a per prescription basis, and the patient has been made aware that the compounded product will be prepared by the pharmacist. 

The reconstitution of commercially available products pursuant to the manufacturer’s guidelines is permissible without notice to the practitioner.

If the officers were asked the difference between compounding and manufacturing, they must know what they are being asked. A reasonable officer could not support or testify to the facts of any item or file that was within the seized computer or secondary storage systems.  

RICHARD JAMES ALPERT

It is within DI Richard Albert’s own statement that he “conceded that he did not know what significance the Florida Administrative Code (FAC) which guides Pharmacy in the State of Florida.”  Agent Richard Alpert said, “ FAC provisions were already included in his subpoena template, and that he did not know what those provisions meant.”   

Q Are you familiar with the FDA guidelines with regard to compounding?

A No, sir.

Q As part of your training, the 12 week diversion investigator training, did you receive training with regard to the compounding of medication and the laws that apply to it?

A Not compounding, manufacturing.

Q Okay. But not compounding?

A Not specifically compounding.

Q All right. And one of the things that you’re trained on in that 12-week course is the law; right?

A Yes.

Q And Federal law, I presume?

A Yes.

Q And have you educated yourself on Florida law that applies to pharmacy operations?

A My answer will be no on that.

Q So in your analysis of this case, you looked solely to federal law?

A Correct.

Q Even though, for instance, your subpoena references specific Florida Administrative Code provisions?

A Correct.

Q You drafted the subpoena, didn’t you?

A Yes.

Q Okay. So when you put those code provisions in there, they had some significance to you; didn’t they?

A Yes.

Q Okay. What was the significance that they had?

A I don’t know, sir.

Q Okay. So you don’t know what — you put them in there but you don’t know what they mean?

A They’re already in there, actually.

Q Oh. So it’s just a template?

A Part of it, yes, sir.

Q Okay. So you just plug it in. But you really don’t know what it means?

A No, sir,

JACK FOLSON:

  1. The issues here are several.  The diversion Investigator has testified in open court that he has no understanding of the difference between compounding and manufacturing.  However, in light of this discrepancy, he continued with the warrant without educating himself about what he was doing.  
  2. Furthermore, there is no indication that anyone on his team took the time to educate him on this crucial factor.  This is somewhat problematic in that how can you prove by the preponderance of the evidence that this Pharmacy is non-compliant in the law without the investigator knowing what is in the law?
  3. Since this investigator drafted the subpoena, he needed to have probable cause to present to an administrative law judge to sign.  Without an adequate probable cause, there is no warrant.  
  4. Without a warrant, there is no case due to a violation of the constitutional protection of illegal search and seizure. Without a subpoena, there is no case.  
  5. Therefore, this falls by the virtue of the “fruit of the poisonous tree doctrine.”

MFR is a matter of taking note which identifies what is happening at the moment of time. His testimony was simply a lie as he has done before and people have gone to prison Harold Eugene Fletcher who went to props based on the tesitmony of Donal R Sullivan.

” A pharmacist may manufacture an aqueous or oleaginous solution or solid dosage form containing a narcotic controlled substance in Schedule II–V in a proportion not exceeding 20% of the complete solution, compound, or mixture. A retail pharmacy may perform central fill pharmacy activities.

The below chart demonstrates Richard James Albert nor his handlers know existing laws and/or rules guiding the practice of Pharmacy. More specifically control medications and this chart under (iv) practitioners, hospitals retail pharmacies are permitted under their DEA Federal Registry certificate to process Schedule medications II-V.

Yet, what is more, troublesome it that these guidelines are from the DEA’s own website under 21 USC 1301.13 under certificate new license and renewal (224&224a) and the cost for this license is $731.00 and it is good for 3 years. The importance is DI Albert didn’t know the laws, never looked for the laws, and his handlers, Aimee Hickerson, Susan Langston, John Beerbower kept him ignorant of the laws.

DEA: THE CRIMES OF A BLACK-OWNED PHARMACY, PUNISHED FOR PAYMENT OF THEIR SERVICES

The DEA goes further to criminalize their medical and payment methodologies without conducting any investigation.

THE DELIBERATE WRONG DOING OF THE DEA

THE

Interference with Wholesalers

On August 29, 2019, a well-coordinated attack implemented by both the DEA and Florida Department of Health was waged on Pronto Pharmacy.  Their actions were beyond the scope of service of a certified law enforcement agency.  Upon entering, a DEA Agent is videotaped removing and disabling Pronto Pharmacy’s camera systems wherein they damaged and destroyed several articles of equipment. (10) (See below videos) 

pharmacy-blurred-mp4“DEA DAMAGE AND DISABLE SECURITY CAMERAS”

The process begins with DEA investigators like Richard Albert interfering with wholesalers, by calling and suggesting they close the merchant account of the targeted pharmacy, under the DEA’s “Know Your Customer Program.” In the case of Pronto Pharmacy, the wholesaler was Safe Chain Solutions. DI Albert instructed Safe Chain to close Pronto Pharmacy’s control medication account in June of 2019, making the products commercially unavailable to them. Therefore, Pronto Pharmacy continued its compounding in order to meet the demand of its patient base. (1)

ABBIE DIVILIO SAFE CHAIN STATE REGULATION COORDINATOR

Ms. Divilio and the DEA worked together with the intent to undermine and destroy the business of Pronto Pharmacy, using distance travel from the physician’s office under know your customer program. Again, no such law exists in either the Federal and State statute.

Sometime in June 2019, Ms. Divilio made an onsite visit to Pronto Pharmacy and spoke with Pharmacist Guy Decker. Video recordings show Ms. Divilio stayed approximately 7.3 minutes. She examine no records, asked Mr. Decker one question, and reviewed no profiles.  Approximately, a week later Pronto Pharmacy’s control medication account was closed. Ms. Divilio informed that they were concern regarding distance traveled between the physician’s office and Pharmacy.

The DEA has learned the rewards are even better against a doctor, dentist, pharmacist, manufacturer, or hospital using RICO, and Justice Department intimidations.  Further, the DEA has its own Court System ( that Operates as a Kangaroo Court) which does not adhere to Federal Rules of Civil Procedures.   Their Judges answer solely to the head of the DEA.

We Demand hearings from Congress as the activity of the DEA affects the lives of all of America during this Covid pandemic by creating disparity and shortages and the majority of the times this has been done by race.

Yet it is clear that the DEA agents were operating in absence from the law whereby Richard Albert, testified on January 28, 2020, in a DEA Federal Court Hearing that he did not “Know or understand the law(s) or how any law apply to the practice of Pharmacy.” There is no evidence that any medication was being diverted. (6) 

9/17/opinion/drugs-dea-defund-heroin.html

DEA Diversion Investigator Richard James Albert so entered the premises of Pronto Pharmacy LLC., based on an assumption that lead Pharmacist Norman J Clement, his family and those employed were illegally manufacturing Oxycodone and Hydromorphone based on suspicion and dispensing high doses of illegally controled prescriptions. 

ALL PHYSICIANS WERE LICENSED

All medications, controlled and non-control, have been properly prescribed by a licensed physician, for treatment of a disease state, supported by radiographs, physical examination, and treatment plan, all part of the patient’s medical/dental records. DI Albert, purposely withheld relevant facts by eviscerating the patient-practitioner relationship, by using Google Maps to track distance traveled by theses patients to have their prescriptions filled, and the patients paying in cash. This is negligence. His handlers have taught him well. Jack Folson Pharmacist Expert writes:

“Currently, the DEA has no statistical guidelines or law to support or establish boundary levels, which are indicative of criminal acts when filling any Control prescription written for patients by a physician who has performed a thorough physical examination, diagnoses supported by medical/dental radiographs and treatment plan. The DEA guidelines are tactic acts that specifically target African American pharmacists.” (8)

DRUG ADDICTION IS NOT A CRIME

It is unreasonable to expect a Diversion Investigator to have a complete understanding of these complex issues. Notwithstanding the basic foundation of patho-physiology is not in their 12-week course as compared to Physicians and Pharmacists requiring years of training to make adequate choices in this arena.  

THE PAINFUL DISCUSSION OF BEING UNDERESTIMATED, UNDERVALUED AND MARGINALIZED

Let it be clear the poor training and limited comprehension, lack of understanding of pharmaceutical science, pharmacy law, and pharmacy protocols of DI Richard James Albert are deliberate, yet essential, and purposefully crafted by his handlers to perform his mission. Richard James Albert does not perform without their command. His handlers know they can prevail with him in spight of their dismissiveness toward medical science and protocols. DI Albert could never be used successfully against a large Chain Drug Store or a Jewish, or White-owned pharmacy because the quality of his knowledge and training would quickly be exposed in a legal proceeding. 

Yet, the United States Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) will prosecute black pharmacist and black-owned pharmacies for accepting cash as a form of payment. (9),(10) The problem here directly falls on the incompetents of the DEA and their private vendors (Appriss Health) who have failed to develop the software of the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) which can distinguish when a person pays in cash, credit card, or debit.

A No, sir.

Q And did you analyze the records, the prescribing records that you obtained via the administrative inspection warrant to compare the patients who received capsules that were compounded at Pronto Pharmacy to the anticipated patient need?

SUMMARY OF DIVERSION INVESTIGATOR RICHARD JAMES ALPERT’S DIVERSION OF THE TRUTH

Diversion Investigator Richard Albert,(DI) testified that he did not “Know or understand the law(s) or how any law applies to the practice of Pharmacy. On January 28, 2020, Richard Albert (DI Albert) under cross-examination by Pronto Pharmacy Attorney Dale Sisco of Tampa, Fl, in summary, stated

  1. In reviewing the respondent’s prescription data, he became suspicious because certain prescriptions were written for tablets but filled in capsules. However, DI Albert admitted that he is not familiar with FDA guidelines regarding compounding and, further, that he did not analyze the records he obtained from the respondent to compare the patients who received capsules that were compounded at respondent’s pharmacy to the anticipated patient’s need.  Likewise, DI Albert did not compare the number of doses of capsules documented as having been compounded by the batch reports to the number of drugs dispensed by the respondent.

  1. DI Albert admitted that speaking with the prescribing physicians identified in the E-FORCE data would have been a simple and straightforward method to ascertain whether any of those prescribers had, in fact, authorized the substitution of capsules for tablets for a particular prescription. He testified further that there was nothing to prevent him from contacting all but one of the physicians who wrote the prescriptions for the patients at issue.  However, DI Albert never contacted, spoke with, or attempted to contact or speak with any of the prescribing physicians. (3),(4),(5)
  2. DI Albert did not know of any federal or state law or regulation that limits the geographic area in which a pharmacy can dispense medications. (2)

CONCLUSION

Why must an agency continue to operate when it openly violated the laws.  We can see that the DEA is no longer an agency that practices and enforces the law effectively and correctly.  This agency has developed a system of support for the rightness of the agency and not for the rights to protect and serve the country.  If this agency is not reorganized or shut down, it will continue to present a clear and present danger to all of America.
