Subject: ANH response to John Hammell's accusations
You addressed your email to Hunter Lewis and myself, but you failed to copy me in. However, I am now responding on behalf of both of us, and behalf of ANH more generally.
Your bullying attacks on ANH, along with unsubstantiated claims and distortion of facts, make it very difficult for us to have any proper or meaningful dialogue with you.
You spoke to Meleni two days ago and claimed Damien Downing resigned from our board because Hunter Lewis had previously been on the board of Rockefeller Bros Fund. Meleni told you this wasn't the case but youyou have issued a further email to your list mentioning this was the case without even mentioning the denial. I have asked Damien by email if he'd told you this and he said definitely not. I don't know what system of fact checking you do, but many of of your emails and communications are littered with factual inaccuracies.
In the scheme of your threats and accusations, and it may be seem like a somewhat minor point, you know that Meleni didnn't slam the phone down on you. Let me remind you what actually happened. You spoke to Meleni on the speakerphone in the office of our campaign administrator, Sophie Middleton, so you were heard by Sophie as well. She was shocked by your exceptionally rude manner. You then apparently claimed that I was refusing to communicate with Paul Taylor of the Dr Rath Foundation. In response, Meleni simply said that this was not true and Paul had an open line to me. This is a fact. In response to Meleni's answer, you then accused her in a highly threatening tone of being a liar. She responded the way any self-respecting person might, and told you that she would have to end the call with you. As witnessed by Sophie, it was then you who slammed the phone down. So please don't make wild accusations at others who are simply resresponding accordingly to your insults and extraordinary rudeness.
You haven't just tried to bully Meleni, you have ta talked about pounding Hunter into the ground like a tetent peg. This disrespectful approach to others isn't going to help the cause. Hunter, in my opinion, is is devoting himself selflessly to our common cause and you need to speak to a few key players in orthomolecular circles, or heads of major companies, to understand this. Your idea of Hunter having a very heavy Rockefeller past is all in your head. You'll see just how wrong you've been on this as you read on.
Below you'll find Hunter's response to me in an email I received yesterday. Hunter has no desire to communicate with you for good reason and you'll see his reason in the excerpt from his email. As executive director of ANH-Intl, I am therefore responding on Hunter's behalf, but I am including the relevlevant part of his email concerning any Rockefeller connection:
My understanding is that John thinks I may have been secretly planted in the health freedom/ natural health movement by the "Rockefellers". The evidence for this odd idea is supposed to come from my resume. In the first place, if I were secretly controlled like a puppet on a string by this alleged Rockefeller monolith, why would I put so-called Rockefeller associations in my resume? Not logical, but then none of it seems logical.
With respect to the resume, John cites World Wildlife Fund, Worldwatch Institute, National Environmental Trust, and Rockefeller Bros Fund as Rockefeller controlled. In fact, only the last one can be said to be controlled in any way by Rockefellers. In the case of World Wildlife Fund, John cites the fact that Godfrey Rockefeller was the first board chairman. I don't recall meeting Godfrey Rockefeller, but web research shows that he is not a descendant of John D Rockefeller Sr at all. He is descended from another branch of the family. In the case of the other organizations, a single grant from decades ago is supposed to indicate Rockefeller control which is nonsense.
Rockefeller Bros Fund is controlled by members of the Rockefeller family, actual descendants of J D Rockefeller Sr. I got on that board indirectly. I was a member of the board of the Culpepper Foundation. Very shortly after I joined the Culpepper board, that organization decided to merge into the Rockefeller Bros Fund. I stayed on the new merged board long enough to be sure that Culpepper's arts, education and science programs continued successfully under new management.
I do not plan to engage in a "dialogue" with John. He lost me when he said that he wanted to "pound me into the ground like a tent peg" and other choice metaphors. I don't engage in dialogues with people who speak like that. I am also appalled by his latest wanton attack on Meleni Aldridge in your office. She is someone who is devoting her life to health freedom/natural health. John complains loudly that she hung up on him. He omits to say that he called her a liar three times. She then said she would not continue the call at which point he is the one who slammed the receiver down. This was related to me by the office staff who heard the whole thing since it was on speaker phone. This is not John's word versus Meleni's since there were witnesses. And then of course John omitted Meleni from the distribution when he launched his attack on her. I really can't think of anyone less deserving of attack and more deserving of praise and thanks than Meleni (whose name John misspelled as Melanie).
John, despite your undoubted passion for health freedom, your aggressive style and wild, unfounded allegations about particular people (Hunter being the most recent example) have done nothing to help bring unity to the health freedom and natural health movement. You seem never to have learned how to be a team player. Unless you adapt your approach, speaking on behalf of the ANH, we see no value in engaging with you. Among our reasons are your persistent schoolyard bully tactics and the fact that you have demonstrated your inability to keep effective strategy away from our opponents.
We are on the same side John, about that I have no doubt. But there is more than one way to skin a cat and you're not the only one who knows about effective strategy.
At ANH we engage in plenty of collaboration with other organisations and individuals around the world. Because of our focus on natural healthcare, I would agree that we have been spending much more time in recent years working with practitioner organisations than health freedom organisations. Thats in part because our agenda is slightly different from the likes of IAHF, NHF, Citizens for Health, etc. Albeit there is a good bit of overlap and we should at least be coordinating our activities (and that doesn't mean we all should be doing exactly the same thing!)
Differences between those of us who choose to dedicate our lives to this cause are inevitable. I hope you can accept that it's ok for us to stop communicating if our communications are not going to be constructive or civil.
So, let me not waste any more of your or my time. The threats to natural health are immense and we all need to focus on those threats we are best equipped to deal with.
Please take this as the ANH's complete response to your tirade againainst us. We are too busy to keep up ongoing responses to you. You'll remember how many person hours we were lost a few years back when a similar situation occurred. We don't have that time to waste anymore.

Subject: Hunter- If You Want IAHF's Endorsement of ANH to Continue- We Need to Talk: Very Good News!! Fwd: Ron Paul Endorsement Means Likely Obamacare Repeal in Congress
To: Hunter Lewis, President
Rob Verkerk- Executive and Scientific Director
Hunter- IAHF is endorsing ANH at the moment and has been since its inception. You can see that endorsement here: http://www.anh-europe.org/support
If you want IAHF's support to continue, we'll need to talk in an effort to try to get on the same page, but I can't call you because my Palm Pilot crashed a while back and I lost some data including your number. I emailed Gretchen, but she never got back to me with it. Respected Orthomolecular physician Damien Downing MD quit the ANH Board due to concern that you may be caught in a serious conflict of interest due to your past very strong associations with the Rockfeller family. I share his deep concerns, but am willing to give you the benefit of the doubt in the interests of an attempt at solidarity- but we do need to talk and I need your number.
Please See Van Irion's press release below my comments about his just getting Ron Paul's endorsement....
This is very good news!! The imminent scuttling of Obama so called "care" along with blocking of so called "Amnesty" for illegal aliens will help seriously derail the CFR's plans to deep 6 America and to usher us into the Rockefucker/CFR planned NAU Dictatorship..... http://www.cfr.org/publication/8102/building_a_north_american_community.html
Hunter- why is it that you aren't doing a damn thing about FDA's Trilateral Cooperation Charter? http://www.fda.gov/InternationalPrograms/FDABeyondOurBordersForeignOffices/QuadtilateralandTrilateral/Trilateral/ucm121967.htm Please level with me. I wasted 3 hours educating Gretchen & Tami on this two and a half years ago. They promised to help. That promise was never delivered on and that really bothers me a lot because I can't stop this without help from more people and groups.
So, what is the DEAL? Is the reason ANH-US isn't addressing this because it would be a conflict of interest for you to really dig in on sovereignty issues that way due to your very heavy Rockefeller past? You are not just some casual bystander, you were in their inner sanctum man, you were part of their inner circle as a duly elected trustee to the RBF in '90 and '91. Thats straight out of their annual report where I see you in a group photo with David and Steven Rockefeller: http://www.rbf.org/usr_doc/1999_annual_report.pdf
< http://www.rbf.org/usr_doc/1999_annual_report.pdf> So, whats the deal, eh? Will you do a You Tube that majorly kicks their ass the way Aaron Russo did? http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=1263677258215075609#
You sure as hell could do something that majorly exposes them if you wanted to..... so the question is....... do you WANT to? If not, WHY not? I need to know straight from the horses mouth how you really feel about them, and a huge and growing number of people share my strong concerns about this.
You claim you're "against Obamacare", but why is it that when I emailed you about Van Irion's class action lawsuit, you never forwarded that information to more people?
Do you endorse Van Irion for Congress now that he's got Ron Paul's endorsement? Will you please alert the public to get onto his lawsuit as plantiffs as more than 31,000 people from all 50 states have already done, and if not, why not? (Please see his mssg below my comments.)
I've gotta tell you Hunter, and I'm speaking very frankly here: I do NOT LIKE this stance you've taken on so called "Healthcare" http://www.anh-usa.org/healthcare-bill/ < http://www.anh-usa.org/healthcare-bill/> because that amendment that you're so loudly touting isn't going to do a DAMN THING to protect us. Why aren't you doing everything in your power to urge people to help Nullify this unconstitutional, nation destroying legislation the way we did with the "REAL ID" Act? Don't you realize fully that this is every bit as Orwellian? Don't you realize that it is nation destroying especially if coupled with Amnesty for illegal aliens?
Tami Wahl told me categorically that your organization "would never" oppose Amnesty. Is that TRUE, Hunter, and if so WHY? Unless we protect our borders, our nation ceases to exist, and DSHEA along with it because I know whats waiting in the wings: FDA's Trilateral Cooperation Charter With Canada and Mexico: one harmonized set of Food and Drug regs between the 3 countries done behind our backs- I have their internal documents via FOIA.
Don't you realize that if Amnesty were granted to 11 Million illegals that a high percentage would get on public assistance and that would break our BACK as a nation ushering us into the Rocekfeller's long desired NAU? Is the reason why Tami told me this because you'd consider a stance against illegal immigration to be a conflict of interest given your long standing connection with the Rockefellers?
Don't you realize the Rockefellers world control, population control agenda runs diametrically opposite everything our health freedom movement stands for?
Are you in our midst to oppose their agenda, or are you in our midst as an "insurance policy" to try to steer our movement AWAY from certain specific issues such as Amnesty?
How can I say with such total authority that your amendment to "Healthcare" is meaningless? Simple. I witnessed the pharma hijacking of OAM from the vantagepoint of being on the Ad Hoc Advisory Board that created it. I know from first hand experience that when it comes to alternative medicine, our government is so totally controlled by Pharma that everything they touch turns to SHIT. Thats why Berkeley Bedell was forced to create his own private Foundation www.nfam.org <http://www.nfam.org > to do the work we'd all HOPED would be done by OAM, but it got hijacked by Pharma long before it was turned into NCCAM and now its being used AGAINST us.
So, I really want to know..... even if you do succeed in getting someone like Dr.Wright, or Whitaker put in as "our guy" on this Comparative Effectiveness Review Council http://www.anh-usa.org/healthcare-bill/, what makes you think he would not be outnumbered and marginalized given the level of control Pharma has within our government as so amply illustrated via the hijacking of OAM long before it ever morphed into NCCAM?
You have a moderated website when it comes to allowing or not allowing public comments. I attempted to ask a lot of these questions publicly, and can't help but note that you did not allow my comments to be posted.
I am offended, because my questions were very good questions, but you're not allowing me to ask those questions in your public forum. Thats censorship man, and I HATE censorship, its anathema to the first amendment and it doesn't impress me at all. Makes it look to me like you might be trying to hide something and that just pisses me off because I really like honesty, TOTAL honesty, but I can't help but notice that you altered your bio in an attempt to try to distance yourself from the Rockefellers after the first time I mentioned your connection with them and I find your attempt at spin to be disturbing because you're acting to me as though you might have something to hide. But I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt by sending you this. This is not an "attack". It is an attempt to get answers to questions that must be asked.
Look buddy, my palm pilot crashed a long time ago and I lost a lot of data including your phone number. I emailed Gretchen and she wouldn't give me your number.
You and I need to talk. Let me make myself perfectly clear: I am not "attacking" you. I play hardball for the simple reason that I have a genetic need for the supplements I take, and I ask tough questions on lots of thing accordingly. I was not impressed at all when I asked Gretchen for your number and she never got back to me. That was damned disrespectful. I've been doing this health freedom work since 1989, she is a newcomer to this movement and is still quite wet behind the ears.
Even though I obviously agree with all the information in Saul Kent's and Bill Faloon's articles, I'm not impressed by the book you published titled FDA: Fraud, Deception, Abuse for the simple reason that you don't have a damn thing in it about the biggest threat we're currently faced with: the prospect of the FDA morphing into the NAU FDA, something which is unequivocally ALREADY HAPPENING via the TCC: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/5/congressional-oversight-needed-to-stop-fdas-trilateral-cooperation-charter http://www.fda.gov/InternationalPrograms/FDABeyondOurBordersForeignOffices/QuadtilateralandTrilateral/Trilateral/ucm121967.htm
I wasted 3 hours educating Tami Wahl and Gretchen about this, was promised help that was never delivered on...... and I have to wonder why. I have to wonder if it would be a conflict of interest for you, given your past, to spit in the Rockefuckers face over this... so I want you to tell me straight up, I'm willing to give you the benefit of the doubt here man. I am NOT "attacking you" I'm just asking hard questions that I feel I have no choice but to ask given the fiduciary responsability I have to my clients and to the grass roots people who make it possible for me to do this work.
So whats your phone # and a good time to call? I wanna know if you are willing to denounce the Rockefellers the way Aaron Russo did, and I wanna know if you and your org will help me stop the biggest threat to DSHEA before its too late? I'm telling you flat out what it is: its FDA's TCC. I know because I got their internal documents via FOIA, I know what those bastards are doing, the only question in my mind right now is whether or not you have the resolve as a former trustee for the RBF to do anything about it or not?
I know who you are man, that is, unless you've in fact "turned over a new leaf". If you HAVE turned over a new leaf, if you are now NO LONGER in the Rockefellers camp as you unequivocally were when you were on the Board of the RBF and as you were when you were the Treasurer of the WWF and several other heavily Rockefeller connected UN NGOs all geared toward pushing UN Agenda 21, then please let me know.....
You were the Chairman of the World Watch Institute, an organization started via a $500,000. grant from the Rockefeller Brother's Fund < http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lester_Brown>
Moreover, I see that he was Chairman of the National Environmental Trust, yet another entity with close connections with the Rockefellers. The Rockefeller Family fund were among the incorporators of the organization in 1994
< http://www.undueinfluence.com/net.htm> Moreover, I see that he was a member of the World Bank Pension Finance Committee, and that he was the Treasurer of the World Wildlife Fund.
Both the Worldwatch Institute, and the World Wildlife Fund are NGO groups which strongly promote UN Agenda 21 which arose from the Earth Summit in Rio de Janiero in 1992.
Aspects of Agenda 21 are very congruent with the Rockefellers strong views on eugenics/population control, especially the Wild Lands Project under which human beings are to be pushed off the land and into cities where we could be more easily controlled as large corridors would be created that would be off limits to humans: http://www.americanpolicy.org/un/darkside.htm
< http://www.americanpolicy.org/un/darkside.htm> http://www.scribd.com/doc/4001727/The-Rewilding-Project-Mission-of-the-Wildlands-Project
< http://www.scribd.com/doc/4001727/The-Rewilding-Project-Mission-of-the-Wildlands-Project > Look, everyone knows the Rockefellers don't vote anyone into their inner circle unless they PROVE themselves first to be VERY loyal to their population control, world control objectives. You worked for the World Bank. You were in a slew of Rockefeller connected UN NGOs including the WWF long before they voted you in as a Trustee for the RBF.
So, did you CHANGE? Did you suddenly decide to TURN on them, are are you trying to play some sort of subtle GAME in our midst?
Are you no longer on side with the Rockefellers population control, eugenics, societal control goals? As Maury Silverman used to say: "I was born neither Republican, nor Democrat, nor YESTERDAY". All I can say is I sincerely hope I'm reading you wrong. I sincerely hope I am way off base in my concerns, but by their fruits ye will know 'em. I know who Aaron Russo was, but I don't yet know who you are. To me, you are a riddle wrapped inside a mystery, wrapped inside an enigma.
So.... who ARE you Hunter? Are you my brother, or are you my enemy? I seek a two way dialogue, preferable in a public forum, for the sake of total transparency. Would you agree to a public conference call via www.freeconferencecall.com < http://www.freeconferencecall.com> ? I ask you this because I polled the IAHF list about this and a very large number of people, including many alternative practitioners, health food store owners, and supplement consumers share my concerns about possible conflicts of interest given your past, and I really do think that if you are in fact on the level, it couldn't hurt at all to publicly answer some questions about this. I used to like ANH. I used to work closely with ANH, but ever since having a conversation with Damien Downing, MD who quit your Board due to very strong concerns that he had over conflicts of interest due to your very close associations with the Rockefuckers, I find myself feeling very tentative when I ponder ANH today despite your funding Emord's successful recent lawsuit, and despite your publishing FDA: Failure, Deception, Abuse.
I would have no problem with FDA: Failure, Deception, Abuse if you had included a chapter about the enormous threat of FDA's TCC, and the need for congressional oversight. I'd have no problem if you'd mentioned that we're being blocked from GETTING oversight by the pharma dominated Oversight & Investigations Subcommittee of the House Commerce Committee, but the absense of this all important chapter is highly conspicuous to me given the huge effort I made to educate Tami and Gretchen on this.
I hope you don't mind my candor here Hunter, but I have no choice but to be this blunt. I have no choice because I have a genetic need for the supplements I use and I emply a very blunt, no holds barred style of conducting warfare. My dad was a SEAL and I grew up in a military family with my dad making me do the chair sit against the wall and pushups and sit ups til I dropped when I pissed him off, so I tend to be rather outspoken and rebellious at all times.
Thats just the way I am and I make no apologies for it to anyone. I grew up in Jersey and I take no prisoners. I don't apologize for that either. So..... whats your phone number and a good time to talk? We got to get on the same page so we can join forces against the Rockefellers, and very few people are in the position that you're in to expose them and their population control/ societal control agenda. Very few people are in your position to help me expose the FDA's efforts to morph into the NAU FDA, and no one can tell me they're not already trying to do that. I've got their internal documents, and copies are in multiple locations so it wouldn't do the Rockefuckers any good to mess with me, if they kill me, other people are already aware of everything I'm doing and have copies of the stuff I forced out of FDA via FOIA. So, are you WITH ME? Thats what I want to know. Whats your phone #? We have a very limited window of opportunity to address this enormous threat.
