Johnson & Johnson Pushed Drugs on Seniors, Suit Alleges
Drug company allegedly conspired with pharmaceutical consulting company
A lawsuit filed last week accuses Johnson & Johnson of conspiring with pharmaceutical consultant Omnicare in an effort to push J&J drugs on nursing home residents, and violating federal Medicaid laws in the process.
As a result of the scheme, "residents were overcharged for their medications, had additional medications administered and were unlawfully switched to Johnson & Johnson drugs," all in the name of increasing revenue, according to the lawsuit.
The suit, filed in federal court in California, says Omnicare -- which "occupies a 'dual' role of a dispensing pharmacy and consulting pharmacy" -- gave certain J&J drugs "elevated status as the default drug of choice" for thousands of nursing home patients. J&J allegedly gave Omnicare "performance rebates" -- essentially kickbacks -- in return for its services. This arrangement was memorialized in a 1997 "Supply Agreement" between the two companies, the suit states.
The agreement provided that the two companies would "meet quarterly to review their joint 'business plan' and 'performance goals,'" and came up with a novel way to deal with the performance-rebates: they would be treated as year-end bonuses.
Iran Accuses NATO Chief Rasmussen Of Warmongering
Iran rejects NATO chief's claims
The Iranian embassy in Copenhagen has responded to the NATO chief's recent claims about Tehran's nuclear program, calling them "misleading false assumptions".
"The former Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen's Wednesday article, which raised some issues about Iran, was full of misinterpretations, ill-intent, and false accusations about Tehran's peaceful nuclear and missile activities," the embassy said in a statement.
"He, like others who seek any opportunity to spread their warmongering views, has one again resorted to preconceptions, lies and deception," it added.
Obama’s Lies About Iran
The Peace Prize winner in the White House continues to beat the drums of war with Iran, in perfect synch with the corporate media orchestra. “The New York Times was made privy to what has been called a ‘parlor game,’ of ‘Imagining an Israeli Strike on Iran’” – apparently in the spirit of the old motivational slogan, “If you can conceive it, you can achieve it.”
“It is Obama who will instigate a conflict that the much-hated Bush would not.”

Is America ‘Yearning for Fascism’?
“We are ruled not by two parties but one party,” Cynthia McKinney, who ran for president on the Green Party ticket, told me. “It is the party of money and war. Our country has been hijacked. And we have to take the country away from those who have hijacked it. The only question now is whose revolution gets funded.”

"A sweeping exercise in nation-building on a scale and scope not seen in generations," said UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon of the international donors conference on March 31 in New York, where foreign nations and other international institutions pledged $5.3 billion toward Haiti over the next 18 months, of which $1.15 billion comes from the US government taxpayers.

To U.N. Climate Representatives In Bonn: No One Believes The Bullshit Any Longer - Go Home, Please
The United Nations has always been a byzantine institution of little value and of extraordinary waste. The recent U.N. sponsored climate studies and conferences have certainly provided ample evidence of these traits, with the U.N. consumed only with a political agenda of gaining a world governance position for itself that controlling CO2 emissions would facilitate.
“The Obama administration has taken the extraordinary step of authorizing the targeted killing of an American citizen,” the New York Times reports. And yes, those are cheers you hear over the drums, erupting from the same neocons who applauded torture and Gitmo. That’s because the intended victim is “the radical Muslim cleric Anwar al-Awlaki…who was born in New Mexico and spent years in the United States as an imam” but who is now “hiding in Yemen.”
The End of the Internet as We Know It in Britain

America is No Longer Free
Habeas corpus -- it's your most fundamental legal right, your right to go to a court and get an order requiring the government to prove that it is holding you in prison with proper legal authority to do so. Without that right, one necessarily lives in a dictatorship. President Bush today on October 17, 2006 signed a bill repealing that law, meaning that the administration need not comply or show compliance with law any more with regard to who goes to prison or Gitmo
Is the bubble about to burst on the Hollie Greig Story?

Israel could opt for Nuke Strikes on Iran

Labour hit by cancer leaflet row
Do you recall, in 2008, when Brown hatched an organ donor scheme whereby, if you didn't explicitly opt out, and you snuffed it, your organs could be taken - without the NHS obtaining permission from your relatives. Implied consent.
The public was outraged, so the government quietly let the matter drop.
Or did it?
We now find that due to an alleged IT 'blunder', they've been whisking out people's organs, anyway - without consent from the 'donor' or permission from the donor's relatives.
Bear in mind that:
- they know that we know that their IT systems are lamentable;
- the organ donor business is big business;
- this government paid councils to for each child removed from its parents - i.e., no scruples.
Brown is completely unfit to have power as he abuses and misuses it for selfish reasons.
He is a very psychologically weak person. Deep down within himself he is very insecure.
So he compensates for this by getting POWER over others.
He craves POWER over others and the feeling of importance it gives him, like a gambler needs his gambling, druggies need their drugs and alcoholics need their alcohol.
He has a serious medical problem.
This has caused him to spend a lifetime from his very early years routinely lying, cheating, bullying and indulging in all manner of other rotten, dirty human behaviour to get his supremacy. Like any other person suffering from an obsession he will do ANYTHING to satisfy his craving.
It is well known that the obsessions of gambling, drug addiction and alcoholism corrupt the soul, and corrupt it absolutely. Brown’s obsession and craving for power and importance has had the same effect on him.
If he once knew the meaning of honour, truth and decency, he has lost it now - as almost invariably happens to long term gamblers and alcoholics.
He is so determined, indeed desperate, to have and keep power over others that he does not care what damage is caused to them.
This person has lived his whole life lying, cheating and bullying. He will say the complete opposite of the truth and stare you in the face with a synthetic and practised look of total sincerity.
This lying and cheating and bullying has gone on for so long that his very being, the very depth of his nature, is now corrupted and he lives in a dark, murky world of hate and selfishness.
He does not want power to do anything with it. He does not want power to help his fellow man. For him, he wants power to fill the hole in his soul. For him, power over others is an end in itself.
He invariably gets what he wants because, unlike normal healthy people, he spends all his time obsessively thinking about getting his own way.
His every thought seems to be geared to getting more power for himself, and creates human unhappiness wherever he goes.
He uses everyone for his own purposes, and creates human unhappiness wherever he goes.
He makes government policy serve his own interests and not the interests of the people or of the country, and creates human unhappiness wherever he goes.
He sees everything in terms of what is good for him personally, and creates human unhappiness wherever he goes.
There is always an ulterior motive to everything he does; the great mistake is to take at face value any reasons he gives for doing anything, for it is invariably wrong and a deceit.
He introduces government policies as a form of public relations - merely to create the IMPRESSION of something favourable to him. It is difficult to think of many policies brought in by this man which have been for the benefit of others. Almost always they have been brought in either to make him look good or to outmanoeuvre his opponents. When the headline has been achieved, implementation has not mattered. It did not matter whether the policy worked or not. As a result, his policies and/or the implementation of them have been flawed, and they have often been actively counterproductive.
Things are not done well simply because the leader’s mind is not on the job, for he is thinking all the time how to turn every situation to his own personal advantage; he is only thinking about policies which benefit him personally.
This creature has had such unrestrained power for so many years, that he has been able to corrupt and subvert the very nature of the machinery of government (particularly through the use of political targets and the political commissars introduced at high levels in every government department) so that now the primary duty and purpose of all government departments and all public bodies is to serve the POLITICAL interests of the ruling party - which means in effect, Brown. Government is now run not for the interests of the people or even for the interests of those affected by government - but for HIS interests.
Power has now been concentrated to an unprecedented degree in his hands. And what has he done with it? He has used it for his own benefit.
As a result he has corroded and degraded all aspects of our society. This man is a CURSE on all decent people.
The deep and unpardonable crime of the MSM is that they knew all this but allowed it to happen and to continue.
Because his motivation is so selfish, whatever he touches, he corrupts - like a fly spreads disease wherever it walks. It is its nature.
It was the country’s deepest misfortune to have someone of this nature exercising almost limitless powers for some thirteen years.
This is a very immature person. He has such lack of self-control that when he feels threatened his temper is monstrous, his bullying is famous and notorious, his lying is systemic and natural, his cheating and deceit is second nature.
He has a frightening capacity to hate, he REALLY hates anyone who crosses him, or threatens him.
His ability to keep grievances and resentment is legendary.
He will say anything to achieve his goals. If that does not work, he will say the opposite the following week.
If this deeply malicious and malignant creature feels threatened by someone, his instinct is to destroy them with any means he has. He will use his team of professional liars to say ANYTHING against the other person to cast doubt on the integrity of the person concerned, in the hope that this will undermine the messenger so badly that the message is weakened.
This is not a normal person, this is a warped and monstrous person.
He should be receiving medical treatment but, dammit, he runs the government.
He will accuse his opponents of doing the same dirty, selfish things he does.
He will accuse his opponents of having the same dirty, selfish motives he has.
It is quite simple to know this odious man’s own true actions, thoughts or motives - you just listen to what he says about others.
Exhibiting this level of hating, holding grievances, lying, cheating, anger, concern for self over others, intent to deliberately hurt and destroy for selfish reasons, misuse of power over others for self is not an indicator of a good person; in fact it is an indicator of a rotten, evil person.
Some people think he is incompetent - but this is to misread him.
It is not good enough to call him the “Prime Mentalist”. No, the disease is much deeper than that. It is much more serious than that.
He has the mentality of a crime boss. A person endlessly seeking total power over others for self. A totalitarian.
He will not stop seeking more and more power.
He is like a parasitic lifeform sucking the life energy out of others for his own advantage; needing to feed on others to sustain himself.
It is not known if he was ever capable of having normal emotions, but if he did, this seems to have gone, as he has spent a lifetime twisting them by faking feelings to achieve an advantage, living a life of deceiving others, pretending something to gain an advantage. He fakes decency, but it does not seem that he really feels it. He just turns faked emotions on - then just as quickly turns them off. That is why he looks so weird when he smiles, because it is not genuine.
This monster just has no understanding of Honesty except as a weakness in an opponent which he can exploit.
He is quite unable to stop, for if this person ever lost power over others he would psychologically implode.
Such people are so psychopathic, so immature, so undeveloped, that they should always be kept away from all power over others, as they ALWAYS misuse it.
Such entities are deeply dangerous and damaging to all they meet for they are always seeking to secure a personal advantage.
Such people never stop their malignant behaviour on their own accord - they have to be actively STOPPED by others. Will he ever be stopped?
If this hellish person is not stopped he will continue concentrating power in his own hands and getting more and more power over individuals to feed his own needs, and this country will be turned into a tyranny and a nightmare.
If he wins the election, he will complete the changes he has already gone so far with, and will so completely change the face of this country that he will be unstoppable.
Brown must be removed NOW at all costs - or it will be too late.
