IAHF Webmaster: Put this response to Tim Bolen under Breaking News, Whats New, All countries
IAHF List: I like Tim Bolen, we are friends and communicate all the time, but I am very irritated right now because he continuously goes off half cocked, with half baked assessments such as the one below which have worked at cross purposes to my efforts to awaken people at many key moments when I needed people to take specific action necessary to monkeywrench the Cartels' global agenda to ban consumer access to dietary supplements.
See my comments to Tim interspersed in what he wrote below. His assessment of where we stand is very sophomoric, he's just not seeing the global chess board.
What angers me about what Tim is saying is that he would have people believe we are winning this war. We're not. We're getting our butts kicked badly, and right at the key moment when I most need people world wide to donate money to the ANH lawsuit to overturn the EU Food Supplement Directive which has huge global implications due to Codex, Tim is putting people to sleep on me by having the believe he see's what we're up against. (see http://www.iahf.com/anh_lawsuit.html See http://www.alliance-natural-health.org and make a donation via that site.
I have tried many times to help Tim see this big picture, but he never has grasped what I was trying to say. He still doesn't.
I don't like communicating with Tim this way, but have no choice because he did not consult me before sending this out and we're in a race against the clock so I have no choice but to respond to this publicly.
Unless enough people world wide donate to the Alliance for Natural Health's lawsuit to overturn the EU Food Supplement Directive and ANH is able to get it filed by the mid August deadline, and have the money necessary to sustain the lawsuit in what promises to be the legal war of the century, the supplement industry, world wide, is finished.
Please read my comments to Tim below, and Tim, please don't be angry at me, you left me with no choice but to respond to you this way- we really do need to work together a lot more closely than this.

The Quackbuster's Newest Scam - "Operation Cure-All"...
Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen
July 7th, 2003
I need to make something clear. DO NOT, for a minute, think that the quackpot soldiers you see, like Stephen Barrett, and Robert Baratz, are running the whole quackbuster operation. They are not bright enough. They are the ones the quackbuster paymasters want us all to see. They're the front men. They've got their function, but it's only part of the game.
I think the whole "Quackbuster" conspiracy, and I have documents that back up my thinking, is being run out of a conference room at a pharmaceutical advertising agency in New York City. It's there that all the decisions, and plans are made, about where to focus the campaign, who to attack, and what cards to play in each attack. It's there that the checks are written.
Actually, you're wrong. I won't say this isn't part of it, but at the top most level the coordinating is being done via ICDRA, a UN entity which coordinates the world's FDA's. International Conference of Drug Regulating Authorities. Suzanne Harris and I have both witnessed this at Codex meetings. Suzanne sneaked in to an inner sanctum meeting at a meeting of the full Codex Commission (not just the committee on nutrition), she was at the FULL Codex meeting in Geneva Switzerland. At the meeting she sneaked into, she heard ICDRA coordinators talking very openly and very matter of factly of their plans to atomize the dietary supplement industry.
Want some proof? It's coming. I'm working with P. J. (Joe) Lisa to re-publish his 1995 book "Assault on Medical Freedom." The new book will have, some changes, and four new chapters, bringing the conspiracy up to date. The information Joe, I, and some others are gathering, although for the book, will be also for delivery to Attorney General John Ashcroft and some others. Joe Lisa has thousands of pages of documents. We think there's enough for a Justice Department RICO (racketeering) complaint.
I'm sure there is, but you'll never get any help from the so called "Justice Department". Trust me, I've already tried approaching them regarding Codex. If you think they give a shit about us, you won't after you read this, and glean some insight into the degree to which Bush and cronies are tools of the Pharma Cartel
The quackbuster operation in North America is simply a scam devised around the time the American Medical Association lost a Federal Court Case to the Chiropractors in 1987. It's function is to eliminate, suppress, or hamper with, anything that competes with the sale of drugs and surgery. It's here to make sure that "treatment," rather than "prevention," or "a cure," stays the "standard of care" in North American Health Care.
True- but the coordination of everything is at a level a lot higher than you realize, its international in scope.
The quackbusters have shifted focus. Today, I'm going to tell you what the new focus is, how it's being organized and run, and who has, and is going to be attacked, and why. In another newsletter I'm going to tell you how we, in the North American Health Freedom Movement are going to crush it.
You better do a lot more talking with me than you have, because unless you do, you won't have a clue how to crush it, because right now, you only think you understand whats going on.
For them, it's all about pharmaceuticals controlling the North American Health market. For us, it's about getting real health care, right now.
Wrong. For them its all about controlling the GLOBAL market, and its also about eugenics, its about controlling the world's food supply and all nutrients. Back in the 1950s they forced chemicalized fertilizers on our farmers intentionally to break the sulfur cycle. They did that intentionally to trigger a huge increase in cancer and other diseases in order to stimulate the market for their drugs, but they also did this to seriously attempt to cull our numbers. The only two countries that refused to allow chemical fertilizers are Austria and Finland, and they are VERY healthy countries. Check out the stats sometime. They still use manure. They did not get cut off from sulfur. We all need to ingest far more MSM to get our sulfur and should only eat organic food. You better take a really deep look into the Eugenics movement and see the interlocking Boards between the oil industry and the pharmaceutical industry and the connections with the Eugenics movement. You also better take a really close look at the CIA's MKULTRA Mind Control Program, see http://www.aches-mc.org Also http://www.us-government-torture.com
For years, quackbusting centered around the Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB) operation. State Medical Board Members, Prosecutors, Investigators, Management, etc., were propagandized to believe that anything new in health care that wasn't drugs, or surgery, oriented, was health fraud. Their assignment, should they choose to take it (and not many of them did), was to terrorize MDs who embraced new things, and to attack non-MDs with "practicing medicine without a license."
But the North American Health Freedom Movement woke up one morning and decided to kick the crap out of them. Health Freedom Bills, defenses of practitioners, exposes, you-name-it tactics, all began to work. EVERYTHING we did worked very well. We're winning everywhere.
Not true, and you do me a real disservice by making such a sweeping pronouncement. You don't know what you are talking about because you haven't been focused on the global chessboard. I assure you, ICDRA has been, but I am not at all sure that you even realize that they're our biggest enemies, and you'd better awaken to reality, and damn quick too, ditto for Joe Lisa. I have tried to tell you about ICDRA, but when I read stuff like this, I can't believe you were paying attention. The fact is that a nuclear strike occurred against the dietary supplement industry in Australia in April when the TGA yanked over 1600 dietary supplements off the shelves without a single product assay to prove contamination of any of Pan's vitamin products. Now, in Canada, on June 18th the Canadian government has just gazetted new regulations which harmonize their vitamin regs to Australia's. Four lawsuits and a bill moving in the Canadian Parliament could overturn these new regulations, but a pitched battle is raging on our northern flank, and it is far from certain what the outcome will be.
Due to the serious push to force us into the FTAA, which is intended to be a clone of the EU dictatorship in our hemisphere, we can't afford to ignore what is happening on our northern flank, or anywhere else in the world due to our membership in the WTO. Yet you are ignoring these things, and you have been the whole time I've known you as you've been overfocused on whats happening here in the states. Your sweeping pronouncement could stop a lot of people from donating to the ANH lawsuit to overturn the EU Food Supplement Directive, something which vitamin consumers world wide had BETTER do, or we will all be SCREWED due to the tie in between the EU FSD and Codex. You'd better take a damn close look at my article at http://www.iahf.com/anh_lawsuit.html We have a deadline of the middle of August to get this lawsuit filed, and you're putting people to sleep on me. You could cause us to lose this thing by going off half cocked with statements like this which put far too many people to sleep at a time when I most need them to pay attention and donate to the ANH lawsuit.
The focus has been shifted since the quackbuster paymasters discovered that (1) Barrett, and company, just can't deliver the goods, anymore. And (2) Robert Baratz, the current President of the National Council Against Health Fraud (NCAHF). who was brought up from the minor leagues with high hopes, is turning out to be an amusing (for us) embarrassment (for them).
Now, the quackbusters are using the FTC/FDA "Operation Cure-All" as their platform. Herein, I'll detail how I think they're doing it. In another newsletter I'll tell you how simple it will be to thwart them - one more time.
Actually, you're wrong. They're using ICDRA as their platform, and "Operation Cure All" is just one small part of what they're doing globally. The USA is being isolated in the world. There is massive pressure on both Canada and New Zealand to harmonize to Australia. The FDA will be announcing illegal GMP regs this summer in an effort to use site licensing as a weapon against us the same way the TGA just did with the Pan Recall in Australia. Emord will be filing a lawsuit. If ANH can get their lawsuit to overturn the EU FSD filed by the mid August deadline, and if we can get the donations necessary to sustain it and go on to win it, we will have a SHOT at monkeywrenching the Cartel's campaign, but if ANH fails, for ANY reason, the supplement industry, world wide, is screwed.
Next year the EU will be expanding from 15 to 25 nations. Unless we overturn the FSD, we won't have the momentum necessary to have a chance to kill the Traditional Herbal Medicinal Products Directive or the Pharmaceuticals Directive which is the most dangerous of the 3 because it turns anything with any physiologic effect in the body into a "drug". If we can't stop the FSD, there will be no way to stop a really draconian vitamin standard from being rammed through at Codex, then later expanded upon as the EU rolls the other 2 directives through.
To arrest their momentum, and to BEGIN to turn the tide, we MUST overturn the FSD, but you're putting people to sleep on me Tim by leading them to believe we're winning, when we're not. You're not seeing the global chessboard, you're overly focused on your little battle with the quackbusters and you're not clearly seeing who is actually pulling their strings, you're not seeing the top most level of their organization, you're only seeing the "middle management" level.
What's this "Operation Cure-All" thing?
Upper management at the FTC and the FDA think they put this plan together to stop internet health fraud. I'm sure they had the best of intentions. But don't be fooled, it's a quackbuster operation. Not one run by the stooges, like Barrett, or Baratz, or Sampson, this is an exercise of the REAL quackbusters - those funding the whole anti-health care, preserve the drug/surgery status quo, operation. The whole plan was, no doubt, written in the back room of a pharmaceutical advertising agency, for a fee that would stagger the imagination. It reeks of big Pharma thinking. Barrett, et al, are Keystone Kops in this venue.
True- but you're still not seeing a big enough picture. I have been to Codex meetings in Germany where I have witnessed the level of communication occurring amongst the FDA and their international counterparts world wide. They are all very heavily networked via email, phone, fax, personal contact via a slew of international meetings under teh auspices of WHO, CODEX, FAO, JECFA, and a slew of other acronyms which you are not familiar with but which are all being coordinated via ICDRA. This level of coordination is so slick that we have even caught them taking the language of legislation from one country, and inserting it directly into pending legislation in other countries.
They're ordering their stooge politicians to draft certain legislation which they are writing and they're controlling them via campaign donations. You'd better take a seriously close look at these two articles The Secret Life of Pharmaceuticals
Illustrates how the UK Parliament is even more controlled by Pharma lobbying than the US Congress is- in the UK- you can't learn anything about hazards of pharmaceuticals that have gone through the government approval process the way you can in the USA under the Freedom of Information Act In the UK- under the Medicines Act, it became a criminal offense for a public official to disclose safety data learned in the course of licensing the product.
'Follow The Dollar' PhRMA Report
PhRMA Wins Big on Medicare After Spending More Than a Half Billion on Political Contributions, Lobbying and Ad Campaigns
Timothy Muris, at the FTC, and Mark McClellan, at FDA, are the targets of a drug company funded scam to use their agencies to kill off upstart competitors of the drug industry. So far, they're unaware of this - so let's fix that.
The majority of employees of the FTC, FDA and Operation Cure-All apparently don't know, either, they are being USED to attack the very upstart competition the drug companies fear the most - supplements (that keep people healthy - so they don't need drug "treatment"), electro-medicine (that replaces drugs, without side effects), chelation (detoxification eliminates need for drugs), natural antibiotics (Like Colloidal Silver, Frankincense, Oregano Oil), and scientists and authors (like Hulda Regehr Clark PhD, Naturopath) who advocate a change in the way America delivers health care.
Tim, there is a revolving door between the FDA and the drug companies. You don't seem to know very much about the group culture at FDA and FTC, but these people aren't being used, they LOVE attacking us, do so VERY willingly, and it is EXPECTED that they will WANT TO attack us. I have had meetings with high level FDA officials in the Parklawn Building and know how they think. I once had a meeting with Gary Dykstra, author of the infamous ANPR which forced us to launch the drive to pass DSHEA. He is a microbiologist by way of background and has a typically reductionistic way of seeing the world which is PERFECT for a cartel stooge at FDA in a top managment position to have.
Huge numbers of people leave the FDA to go to work in the drug companies where they can make far more money in the private sector and there is a huge "good ol' boy" network between them. FDA has ALWAYS acted like a trade association doing the bidding of Pharma because they're all one big happy family. FDA takes in millions of dollars on NDA applications from drug companies which pay billions to the FDA to get their patented Rx drugs through the "approval process" and they all work together to destroy unwanted competition coming from all sources. You should read Harvey W. Wiley, MD's book The History of a Crime Against the Food Law. It was written in the '30s. He was the FOUNDER of the FDA. In his book he documented how the Agency, which he created with only the best intentions in the world, became a WHORE. It was an effort on his part to warn the WORLD, but the monster is FAR BIGGER and FAR MORE DANGEROUS now than it EVER was in the 1930s when Wiley wrote his book.
What we'll probably have to do is to get a RICO/Civil rights, and Conspiracy to Violate Civil Rights, action, going against those controlling and manipulating it, and those FTC, FDA, and Operation Cure-All employees involved in the scam. We'll need to get Attorney General John Ashcroft involved in this, as well as FDA Internal Affairs, and the Inspector General at the FTC.
Dream on. Ashcroft is one of the most evil and most corrupt SOBs who ever breathed air, and if you think he gives a damn about protecting our access to dietary supplements or any other aspect of our rights, you're even more delusional from living in Orange County than I realized. You better have a gander at so called "Patriot Act One" and "Patriot Act 2" Ashcroft is the biggest Nazi to come along since Adolph Hitler, and Bush was in on the 911 scam, all it was was a modern day Reichstag Fire see http://www.copvcia.com and http://www.infowars.com Bush and Ashcroft's goal, and the goal of those who pull their strings is to destroy America to pave the way for the FTAA, and a global totalitarian state, and they're doing it. Wake up to reality.
So, what's "Operation Cure-All" up to? You can go to the self-promoting website "://www.ftc.gov/opa/2001/06/cureall.htm" and read the sanctimonious words:
"Operation Cure-All" Wages New Battle in Ongoing War Against Internet Health Fraud
FTC, FDA and other law enforcement agencies move to stop Internet scams for supplements and other products that purport to cure cancer, HIV/AIDS and countless other life-threatening diseases. FTC also warns of risks associated with some supplements, including drug interactions."
Sounds good, but the worm in the apple is that the definition of "health fraud" is the one written in a conference room of a pharmaceutical advertising agency. They might as well have come out openly, and said "if it competes with big Pharma, it's health fraud, and we're against it."
The other REALLY bad thing about the FTC and the FDA is the huge amount of INTERNAL influence big pharma has on FTC and FDA thinking. When Dwight Eisenhower left the Presidency, one of the last things he did was to stop the revolving door between the Defense Department and Defense contractors. That has to happen with the FTC/FDA and big pharma - right now. Before America dies of a drug overdose.
Yeah, and you actually think ASHCROFT's Justice Department is going to do that??? You better take a really close look at Rath's Tribunal at the Haague and the criminal charges he filed against Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld et al at http://www4.dr-rath-foundation.org/
What follows is a gross oversimplification of what we're up against, and you're doing me a serious disservice by putting people continuously asleep regarding what is happening at the global level. I need people to donate money to the ANH lawsuit to overturn the EU Food Supplement Directive so they can get it filed by the mid August deadline and have sufficient donations to SUSTAIN IT. Why don't you communicate with me before sending out stuff like this? You have now caused me this sort of problem at least 4 times that I can think of and it really is not good.
Here's how the scam works...
Fact #1: The FTC/FDA system requires that claims about products must be based on "scientific proof." In translation, that means that every claim, or suggested claim, must be double-blind studied in 30 to 50 cities (usually on the inner city poor), and the "studies" will cost somewhere between 200 to 400 million dollars each. Since herbals, and natural supplements, can't be patented, the FTC/FDA system has effectively given big Pharma a monopoly on approvals - since only big Pharma can afford the testing procedure.
Gee, I wonder how that happened? Sarcasm intended.
Fact #2: The FTC won't allow "testimonials." To them, someone saying "I, and 300 of my friends did this thing, and all of us were cured of cancer, and here's our medical records to prove it," is inadequate information. The reality of a "cure" is not in their vocabulary. It's still "unproven," and, according to them, you can't tell anyone about it. Saving lives, by passing around information, is to them, a criminal act.
The FTC/FDA' Operation Cure-All, doesn't want anything to do with reality. It gets in the way.
So, when big Pharma sees that somebody is cutting a little too deep into, or just threatening the future of, their drug market, checks are written, and a meeting takes place in New York City. There a plan (a standard format plan) is made. And the execution begins on Monday.
Here's how they do it.
The quackbusters decide who they're going to hit. The advertising agency (which controls major drug advertising placement) writes up the stories that are going to be distributed to their "letter writing brigade." The letter writers, following the guidelines, then write to the FTC, the FDA, and Operation Cure-All, to set a basis for the complaint. Then the ad agency writes stories, getting quotes from the likes of Barrett, Baratz, etc., on the victim. The stories are sent out to the media in which the advertising agency's drug clients advertise. The stories are printed in the media as though they were true.
Once the stories hit the press, a second wave of letters goes out to the FTC, the FDA, and Operation Cure-All, to put pressure on upper management to act. Then more media is generated, this time with quotes from the quackbuster insider FTC employees to make it sound official that the FTC is interested. Once this happens, letters and phone calls go out from supposedly "irate consumers (quackbusters)," once again to the FTC, the FDA, and Operation Cure-All upper management, demanding to know why they aren't doing something.
Then, letters and phone calls go out from supposedly "irate consumers (quackbusters)" to certain members of Congress demanding to know why the FTC, the FDA, and Operation Cure-All, aren't doing something.
Within days, upper management of the FTC, the FDA, and Operation Cure-All, are deluged with questions from more media, and Congress. They see the issue as important, and act against the victim - even if their is little or no evidence.
After this, some poor bastard is fighting for his life, while the plotters pop open a case of $1,000 a bottle champagne, congratulating themselves for another hit against their competitor.... And, more checks are written.
This is, I believe, how the attack was organized against the Rife equipment manufacturers, Bob Barefoot Coral Calcium, SeaSilver, the Colloidal Silver proponents, etc... I have good reason to believe that EVERY ONE of the Operation Cure-All targets, right from the beginning, was arranged this way.
For a sample of how it's done, click here for the petition, and here for the signers where the quackpots were attempting to stop the whole science of Homeopathy. They failed...
So, why this new assault? Because the quackbusters are, basically, floundering. The old plan wasn't working.
Why are the quackbusters floundering?
The quackbuster operation in North America is floundering for a number of reasons.
The number (1) reason is that the quackbusters underestimated the intelligence of the North American health consumer. Those consumers don't trust conventional medicine, anymore. Americans can sense when they are being lied to.
(2) Americans have discovered "health," and they've worked out for themselves that "health" and "medicine" aren't the same thing.
(3) Americans have worked out that that expensive "health plan" is a big waste of money - because all it pays for is "medicine." It doesn't pay for "health care." Insurance companies, and the US Government have caught on - and are adding new billing codes (ABC Codes) to deal with reality and demand. The American consumer, right now, is buying "health" out of their discretionary income - and the total amount of that is more than half of the total US health dollar.
(4) The North American Health Freedom Movement is kicking the crap out of the quackbusters whenever, and wherever, they meet on a battlefield.
(5) The whole idea of restricting American's health care offering to drugs and surgery is un-American. Even conventional MDs are getting fed up with the idea that "nothing new should be used in medicine unless it's been approved by a failed MD working out of his basement in Pennsylvania."
(6) The people of New York State are waking up to the fact that right there, in their midst, is a cesspool of quackbuster activity. Not only New York City, but Buffalo. Plans are being made. Targets are being selected.
(7) In the end, GOOD always triumphs over EVIL.
We, in the North American Health Freedom Movement, need to destroy the quackbuster operation. For, Americans are suffering and dying. Nobody is going to fix this problem but us. We are the ones who understand what's happening. We also know what to do, and how to do it. So, let's do it.
