Jeff Bradstreet, MD, autism researcher, found dead in a river after FDA raided his lab
by Mary Maxwell, currently a candidate for US Senate
I am struggling in my campaign with the gap between my understanding of the world and my audience’s. I think the gap has to do with politeness. In polite society you are not supposed to talk about sin — except money-sin and sex-sin. Those two are always acceptable chit-chat. Come to think of it, those two are the ones the media loves.
For me, the big sins are torture and genocide. It shouldn’t be impolite to discuss these. In fact, any competent political scientist or historian of violence knows that ruthlessness is a winning trait. There are plenty of ruthless people and they do big, terrible things. They usually hide, however, either by using a deceptive cover-story for their actions or they hide their identity completely.
In Part 1 of this series on Health Care, I said Rockefeller was not the top guy.
The top guy, for whom the Rockefellers work, remains in hiding. The book Thy Will Be Done, by Gerard Colby and Charlotte Dennett, claims that Nelson Rockefeller virtually ruled Latin America (and used the Evangelical Churches in his rule!). Why would he do all that for another person, his secret boss? I don’t know.
Colby and Dennett have laid it all bare about Nelson. I am pleased to lay bare anything I discover about medical genocide. And I urge you to yak, yak, yak about these things. Just throw politeness overboard. Stupid, stupid politeness.
My research leads me to believe that there have been many medical genocides in the US in our lifetime. The Spanish flu of 1918, the polio epidemic of 1955, the use of Agent Orange on our soldiers (never mind on the Vietnamese population) in the 1970s, AIDS in the 1980s, Gulf War Illness in the 1990s, autism in the 2000s, appear to me to have been deliberately caused. Yes.
This article is about autism. Let’s start by looking at that horrible picture of Jeff Bradstreet’s body floating in a river in North Carolina. His autistic son had just graduated from high school and Dad was happy. The authorities tried to pass it off as suicide. His brother Tom started a Go Fund Me page to solicit money for an investigation. The authorities have since conceded that it is probably homicide.
Is this leading to any arrest? No. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist, or even an autism scientist, to know that his death is very likely a result of his getting close to a cure for autism. In the days leading up to his death his office was raided by the FDA. (Note: cancer curer Stan Burzynski says his clinic was raided by the FDA during patients’ visits, traumatizing them!)
Here is the Washington Post’s story, on July 16, 2015, headlined “Mysterious Death of Doctor Who Peddled Autism ‘Cures’ to Thousands”:
Since his death, however, the conspiracy theories have begun to crumble as evidence has emerged linking Bradstreet to a shadowy online industry in unapproved medicine.
Bradstreet’s Internet postings tie him to an unlicensed medical factory that was recently shut down for producing potentially contaminated vials of a supposed wonder “cure” called GcMAF.
The day before his death, Bradstreet’s own clinic was raided by federal and state authorities searching for the same untested and unapproved “cure.”
My first thought is that the “shadowy company” was possibly in on the FDA thing. The plot is often laid in advance, in order that “evidence” can be brought to court. Judges never seem to raise an eyebrow. But that’s a story for another day.
Note also WaPo’s referring to “potentially contaminated vials.” This puts the reader in the mind that the raiders, the FDA, exist for our protection. God knows, we don’t want contaminated vials!
Consumer Protection and the Commerce Clause
What is the FDA? The Food and Drug Act of 1906 was passed by Congress. In a later era, we had “consumer protection measures.” For example, Ralph Nader in the 1960s fought for such legislation as “Truth in Lending.” This mean that the bank has to tell you in writing what your total repayment over the years will be.
How does Congress have the constitutional power to regulate such things? It is all chalked up to a particular clause in Article I, section 8, namely the 3rd clause. It says:
“the Congress shall have Power to … regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes.”
The key phrase is “regulate commerce.” We Republicans want federalism protected, that is, we oppose the disappearance of states’ sovereignty. (I am a proud member of the Federalist Society in Washington, DC). We yell if a court interprets the Commerce clause to mean the feds can oversee manufacture, or labor conditions. They should only oversee stuff that crosses state lines. i.e., commerce. Let the states regulate labor and manufacture to their heart’s content.
Note: if you want to know what the Framers had in mind in any clause, you go to James Madison’s notes. If you want to know how the US Supreme Court has interpreted any clause, you to go “US Constitution, Annotated.”
Roughly, the Framers had in mind that one state might try to overlord another in regard to trade so this clause was inserted to prevent that. Roughly, the US Supreme Court in its first 200 years affirmed Congress’s right to legislate broadly in regard to business. However, in the 1995 case of Lopez and the 200 case of Morrison there has been some setback. And Justice Clarence Thomas said the whole natter should be re-visited. I’ll say.
Can the FDA Prevent Manufacture of a Cure for Autism?
If you want to know what the law says (federal), Google for subject matter, such as FDA and USC (meaning United States Code). I did this and will quote just one paragraph from a huge entry at 21 USC 352:
(iii) the established name of each inactive ingredient listed in alphabetical order on the outside container of the retail package and … except that nothing in this subclause shall be deemed to require that any trade secret be divulged, and … that this subclause shall not apply to nonprescription drugs not intended for human use.
Blah, blah, blah.
The FDA does not control the manufacture of a product, only its labelling. So what does it mean to say that the FDA has approved of a drug? The website of FDA.gov says:
“The mission of FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) is to ensure that drugs marketed in this country are safe and effective. CDER does not test drugs, although the Center’s Office of Testing and Research does conduct limited research in the areas of drug quality, safety, and effectiveness. [We have] responsibility for medical and radiological devices, food and cosmetics, biologics, veterinary drugs, and tobacco products.
“Some companies submit a new drug application (NDA) to introduce a new drug product into the U.S. Market. [They must] submit evidence that it is safe and effective. A team of CDER physicians, statisticians, chemists, pharmacologists, and other scientists reviews the sponsor’s NDA containing the data and proposed labeling.”
I must admit I do not understand the grounds on which the FDA seized the property of Jeff Bradstreet. Often (I claim) it is just theft and physical intimidation of a doctor who is about to reveal a cure. “We can’t have that” – if we want a genocidal epidemic to continue.
What Is Autism?
The diagnosis autism was first made by Leo Kanner, MD, at Johns Hopkins in 1943. I think he was in on the deal. He found eleven cases. Before that, there had been something called childhood schizophrenia in which the subject seemed withdrawn from reality. That child, however, did not have the symptoms that are famous today. Examples include:
The child cannot speak, the child has sensory overload (even a small sound may be deafening to him, even soft clothes may hurt his skin, the sights around the room may come to him in a jumble), the child has food allergies, the child has extreme bowel problems, the child acts obsessively in regard to certain things such as spinning the wheels on a toy.
In this article I am speaking exclusively of persons with severe autism, not high-functioning individuals. I do not think the two should be mixed by saying “He has ASD – autism spectrum disorder.”
The number of children diagnosed with autism increased dramatically in the 1990 and in a recent year was 1 in 68 newborn boys.
Mary Maxwell Says
Since I do not know of anyone but me who says these things I will “attribute” the statement to myself. I think the use of disease is just as ordinary a weapon as guns or spears. Why would a nation hold back if it wanted to defeat the enemy? Why would an ambitious businessman hold back if he could eliminate a rival?
Please consider that all of these could easily have been done deliberately rather than by an act of Nature:
The London fire of 1666, the Bubonic plague in London in 1667, the outbreak of leprosy in Hawaii in 1866, the worldwide flu of 1918, the thalidomide injury to newborns in 1960, AIDS, autism, Williams syndrome, West Nile virus, and the recent increase in cancer.
Likewise, I think these diseases in plants and animals was also deliberate: the Irish potato blight, Dutch elm disease in the US, all instances of hoof and mouth disease in livestock, and all immunodeficiency syndrome in pets.
Before you say “Impossible!”, recall that the use of smallpox-laden blankets to kill America’ indigenous people has long been admitted to. (I actually think it was done without benefit of blanket.) And recall the Guatemala case.
Robert Bazell at NBC news tells of the Guatemala event.
“U.S. government medical researchers intentionally infected hundreds of people in Guatemala, including institutionalized mental patients, with gonorrhea and syphilis without their knowledge or permission more than 60 years ago.
“Many of those infected were encouraged to pass the infection onto others as part of the study.
“Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius offered extensive apologies for actions taken by the U.S. Public Health Service:
“The sexually transmitted disease inoculation study conducted from 1946-1948 in Guatemala was clearly unethical. … We are outraged that such reprehensible research could have occurred under the guise of public health. We apologize to all the individuals who were affected by such abhorrent research practices.”
There is no point your telling me that I mustn’t make claims until the evidence is in. I don’t need perfect proof; I’m only saying my interpretation is likely. Once you know how to hurt people biologically, you will use it just as surely as you use other developments in an arms race. Won’t you?
Indeed it is an extra clever way to operate – until now the miscreants haven’t got caught! This is because Americans are afraid to be impolite. Look how Hillary got away with – or should I say look how the United States got away with – defining the Guatemala event as “unethical” and as part of “research.”
Folks, it was not part of research. It was the real thing. See Slate’s semi-believable report of the event as a real experiment.
The Murder of Jeff
Folks also don’t like to say “Jeff Bradstreet was murdered.” You should say it. Go on, practice it. If you don’t say it, it is much easier for such a thing to happen again. Clearly – could anything be clearer? – Jeff was murdered.
I guess there is a chance that a hunter shot him by mistake and then threw him in the river. We can’t be sure. But we do know Jeff was not suicidal, and that he loved his family and would not have made them see his dead body floating in a river.
Therefore, we should get up a posse to go searching for the killer. Or a phalanx of District Attorneys to line up some indictments. Something! Anything! Don’t let it pass by (as we have done with dozens of whistle blower deaths).
Moreover, we should start to provide absolute protection for the cure that Dr Bradstreet was preparing. Some of his colleagues are aware of the formula, and you can’t blame them if they are in zip-up-the-lips mode today.
Does anyone remember that old human practice called solidarity? It works wonders. Always has, always will. It’s the way the human species gets things done when there is a bully afoot.
