“WHAT DID THE DEA-DOJ KNOW AND WHEN DID THEY KNOW IT??”
DEAR UNITED STATES ATTORNEY GENERAL MR. MERRICK GARLAND,
Politically ambitious, morally ambiguous, these individuals used the pretense of law to unleash lawlessness throughout the land, from the general public to the courts of law.
On Monday, November 19, 2019, Dr. Bruce Bagley, 73, was arrested in Florida after being accused in a federal indictment of laundering dirty money into the United States from a Venezuelan bribery and corruption scheme.
University of Miami Professor Bruce Bagley was one of the final witnesses in the state opioid trial, testifying in July for pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson as an expert on drug cartels. Bagley, an international studies professor, has been a sought-after expert for both lawyers and journalists for years.
He co-edited and helped write the 2015 book, “Drug Trafficking, Organized Crime and Violence in the Americas Today.” He has worked as a consultant for the FBI, CIA, Drug Enforcement Administration, and other federal agencies.
JUST THE COST OF DOING BUSINESS
The Chickenshit Club a book on ” Why the Justice Department Fail to Prosecute Executives,” the author Jesse Eisinger research concludes, today the justice system is broken. The department avoided the biggest cases. It became fearful of losing and lost sight of its fundamental mission to make this country a just place.”
The Chickenshit Club not only survives; it now thrives in the harvesting and persecution of medical science and prosecution of pharmacists, physicians, dentists on “Opioids” in conjunction with healthcare fraud remembering “the Prosecution Never has to prove its the case. As such Eisinger’s journalism has showcased a real story that is far from being concluded and affects the delivery of healthcare an all who believe in the truth and justice of the American democratic ideal.
Walter F. Wrenn MD a wrongfully convicted physician Philadelphia Pa.:
The FDA is the government agency responsible for approving medication. Once a medication is approved the physician has the sole authority to prescribe any medication they feel is medically necessary. There is no authority that can say otherwise including the DOJ/DEA.
In guidelines 90, MME is mentioned as a goal. The DOJ/DEA has wrongly decided that these are not guidelines but laws or rules. At a recent trial, the government’s star witness Dr. Timothy King said that 90 MME’S was the “absolute” threshold when prescribing opiate pain medication. Nothing could be further from the truth.
I have enclosed an official statement from the CDC regarding the 2016 guidelines and their misapplication. The AMA has written several articles questioning the validity of this measurement. The CDC should never have issued guidelines concerning medication in the first place.
CORRECTING THE MEDICO-DENTICO LEGAL SYNAPSIS
According to Richard Lawhern Ph.D. a patient advocate:
The US faces a real public health crisis in addiction and overdose deaths. But this crisis was not caused by evil Pharma companies or doctors “over-prescribing” to patients. CDC published data prove this beyond contradiction. Before 2010, the crisis was partially fed by the diversion of prescribed drugs through pill mills.
After 2010, there is no cause-and-effect relationship between prescribing versus overdose-related mortality. As acknowledged even by the DEA, the present opioid crisis is dominated by illegal street fentanyl, heroin, and Meth, not by prescription medications. Yet every week we see more suicides by pain patients whose doctors can no longer prescribe them the only medications that work.
The American Medical Association report September 21, 2021, showed a 44.4 percent decrease in opioid prescribing nationwide in the past decade. At the same time, the country is facing a worsening drug-related overdose and death epidemic.
“Yet, the nation continues to see increases in overdose mainly due to illicit fentanyl, fentanyl analogs, methamphetamine, and cocaine, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
In addition, state public health, media, and other reports compiled by the AMA (PDF) show that drug-related overdose and death have worsened across the nation. Research and data from the National Institutes of Health, U.S. Substance Abuse, and Mental Health Services Administration (PDF), and Indian Health Service underscore the continued challenges and inequities for Black, Latinx, and American Indian/Native Alaskan populations.”
CONGRESS: CLEAN UP THIS MESS
It is past time for Congress to correct the mess they have made of the regulation of opioid pain relievers. Here is contact information for your Senators, Representatives, and governor’ offices. Call them and demand that they:
- familiarize themselves with the problems they have created by reading this article in STAT news.
- begin work on legislation to force the repeal of the CDC Guidelines
- reign in regulators and drug enforcement authorities from their senseless and unfounded persecution of doctors.
To make it easy for them here is model legislation that, if enacted, will do all of the above.
FOR NOW, YOU ARE WITHIN
