Las Vegas Reopens: The Good, Bad & Ugly

Las Vegas, Nevada casinos statewide are riding a tourism surge and seeing monthly winnings records. This has caused hotel room rates to rebound with visitors now approaching pre-pandemic levels.

In 2020, at the peak of pandemic and lockdowns, we didn’t stay home. Instead, we went on a summer roadtrip that covered 15 states from Texas to Washington D.C. and back. This included stops in crowded tourist spots like Graceland in Memphis, Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, Andy Griffith Museum in North Carolina, Ark Encounter in Kentucky, and Branson, Missouri.

This year, we are currently on our second roadtrip of 2021 out West visiting Las Vegas and Laughlin, Nevada. In May, we traveled to the Royal Gorge and Garden of the Gods in Colorado, Carlsbad Caverns and International UFO Museum in New Mexico.

On our current trip, we’ve enjoyed a day at the Southwest Sonaran Outdoor Desert Museum near Tucson, Phoenix and are in Las Vegas as I write this. (Note: Old Tucson Movie Studios is closed. Pima County is trying to decide what to do with it.)

If you are interested in getting away from home, TV, news propaganda and mandates, consider doing what thousands of Americans are doing: Travel.

Those planning to visit Las Vegas should check the Nevada Health Response for updates on state and county requirement changes. We didn’t bother because we are not that concerned about restrictions and enjoy being free spirits. Visitors could check directly with resorts, attractions and other experiences for full details around operations. We had few problems.

In Vegas, these are our general thoughts after being here four days:


We found some of our favorite restaurants closed, so we sought out opportunities to discover new ones. In the LINQs Promenade area you can take a trip to Flavortown at Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar. The celebrity chef brings you his big, bold flavors and tasty twists on comfort food. It’s a good place to bring your appetite. They have everything from a Tatted-Up Turkey Burger to Jack Daniels steak to a giant, over-the-top cheesecake dessert. There is also a good view of the Vegas Strip from their 6,500 square-foot outdoor patio.


One of Fieri’s signatures is his Trash Can Nachos. It’s as over-the-top as the Food Network personality who created it. The nachos are literally presented in a mini trash can and feature a tower of corn tortilla chips, house-smoked pork, cheese, black beans, jalapenos, sour cream, pickled onions, cilantro, pico de gallo and chipotle barbecue sauce.

Nearby is Hot Diggity Dog.

One of the favorites is The Gold Standard, featuring smoked bacon, cheddar cheese, tomato confit, baby arugula and garlic-chive aioli. Another is the Billionaire Dog, complete with a Kobe beef frank, foie gras torchon, port onion marmalade and truffle mayo.

At New York-New York Hotel, we found all restaurants opened. We elected to go to one of my favorites, America. They’ve never let me down. It’s not overly noisy like some eateries can be in Vegas.

My biggest disappointment was the gutting of the House of Blues restaurant at Mandalay Bay. They totally destroyed the peaceful blues vibed –with tree– bayou scenery and replaced it with a large and loud, concrete and steel, industrial manufacturing plant type eatery. No acoustics and wide open to the ambient noise of the slot machinery, it will be the last time I will ever eat there. We heard other diners complaining about it too.

House of Blues, before
HOB, after

We noticed Rice, our favorite restaurant at the Luxor next door, is closed down. Eventually we noticed many higher end establishments (including steak houses, seafood, sushi, Italian and more) have shuttered their doors at Westgate, Bally’s, Paris, Flamingo, Harrah’s, Venetian, Excalibur and Luxor too.

(During our visit, hundreds of Culinary union workers in red shirts marched in protest on the Strip about their pay, working conditions and vaccine mandates.)

Like gasoline, about 3.55 a gallon now, the costs for buffet meals have increased since I was here a couple of years ago. They tend to be in the $23-$45 range weekdays and $29-59 on weekends.

🔹At the back, left hand corner of the Luxor casino, is a reasonably priced (at Vegas standards) quick to order grill called Backstage Deli. We had breakfast and coffee at $26 total, with tip, for two.

🔹At Hard Rock Cafe, just north of MGM resort on the Strip, Dodie had the “most delicious steak salad ever,” for $20. I enjoyed their Smokehouse Combo (Ribs and pulled pork, fries, coleslaw and baked beans for $27).

🔹Our most expensive splurge was fourth row seats for Dodie’s first ever Cirque du Solevil show, “O” at Bellagio. Note: The Conservatory there is a must see free attraction. It changes with the seasons and holidays.

🔹Instead of taking a Lyft, Uber, or cab to the different venues, we bought a Monorail pass at $13 for 24 hours. It was long enough for us to enjoy most of the east side of the Strip from MGM south to Westgate, north. We also deboarded at Bally’s to walk across Las Vegas Blvd. to Bellagio where “O” plays.

🔹My favorite daytime (afternoon entertainment) is The Mac King Comedy Magic Show, now at Excalibur.

🔹The most fun we had for the best bargain was the Ultimate 4-D Experience at Excalibur.

For $14 a person, we enjoyed 15 minute versions of two action packed films of Wonder Woman and San Andreas with 3-D glasses, moving seats and special effects (water mists, bubbles, lighting enhancements and other special effects).

Latest News You Need to Know About Fluoride Dangers in Drinking Water

Lawsuit Filed: 200 Million+ Americans Drink Fluoride in Their Water

  • U.K. Health Secretary Sajid Javid announced he would be adding fluoride to the water supply, a move that was supported by the chief medical officers of England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales
  • In response three British scientists sent a public letter to Prime Minister Boris Johnson, cautioning “This is not a good time for the British government to mislead the public on the dangers posed by the practice of water fluoridation.”
From U.K.
  • England’s chief medical officer dismissed the concerns, calling them “exaggerated and unevidenced.” However, there are 70 human and 60 animal studies demonstrating an association between fluoride ingestion and a reduction in learning or memory
  • Evidence also suggests fluoride is associated with ADHD and disrupted sleep patterns and is an endocrine disruptor. U.K. citizens may sign a petition for Parliament to consider it for debate. While reverse osmosis filtration can help, the most effective solution is to stop water fluoridation

In 2019, 97% of countries in Western Europe were not adding fluoride to their water. While a handful use fluoridated salt, the majority do not. Yet, despite the lack of fluoridated water or salt in their diets, the rates of tooth decay have declined significantly in all the countries.

In September 2021, Great Britain’s health secretary Sajid Javid announced he would be adding fluoride to all public water supplies, forcing citizens to consume the neurotoxin. The statement came in conjunction with approval by the United Kingdom’s chief medical officers from England, Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland.

America’s Water

Paradoxically, his announcement comes one year after a consumers’ group in the U.S. filed a federal lawsuit challenging water fluoridation that supplies 200 million U.S. citizens. The suit was brought against the Environmental Protection Agency and would require water utilities to stop fluoridation.

Fluoride is a naturally-occurring mineral in water and soil that scientists in the 1940s found might help prevent tooth decay. Water fluoridation began in the U.S. in Grand Rapids, Michigan, in 1945 and other Michigan communities and then states adopted the practice in the years that followed.

Ninety-six percent of the fluoride used in U.S. water systems comes from apatite ore, the source of phosphate fertilizers. While the mineral’s composition also includes “high concentrations” of hydroxide, fluoride and chloride, the CDC calls the addition of this neurotoxic chemical “one of public health’s greatest success stories.” Yet, this “great success story” originates with highly toxic by-products in the production of fertilizer.

The production process involves mixing the apatite with sulfuric acid derived from molten sulfur, which the American Water Works Association describes as “a waste product from cleaning petroleum feedstock.”

Once the toxic vapors are converted to a dangerous liquid waste, it is transported from fertilizer factories to water reservoirs where it is added to drinking water. However, unlike pharmaceutical grade fluoride in toothpaste, this is “an untreated industrial waste product, one that contains trace elements of arsenic and lead.”

Unfortunately, not many are aware of the effects fluoride has as a cradle-to-grave neurotoxin or the origin of the waste product added to the water supply. Although there has been some pushback against the proposal in the U.K.,  Javid “is understood to be keen to press ahead with adding the mineral to the water supply and will gain powers to do so across England under laws going through parliament.”

Despite Evidence of Danger, UK to Force Fluoridation

In a concerted effort to convince the public to accept the proposal, the U.K.’s chief medical officers came out together endorsing water fluoridation across the U.K. countries. In an effort to make it look like adding fluoride to the water is a benefit to U.K. citizens’ health, they added the proposal to legislation called “The Health and Care bill,” which is set to go before the MPs, which will then give Javid the authority needed to order fluoridation.

In response to this, three British scientists sent a public letter to Great Britain’s prime minister, Boris Johnson. In the press release published from the U.K Freedom from Fluoride Alliance they write, “This is not a good time for the British government to mislead the public on the dangers posed by the practice of water fluoridation.”

The scientists believe that the statements from the chief medical officers from the four U.K. countries extol the weak benefits of fluoridation, but ignore stronger evidence that fluoride is a developmental neurotoxin. According to the scientists,

“The dental lobby has controlled this debate for far too long. You can repair a damaged tooth but early damage to the brain (especially during fetal development and infancy) cannot be repaired or reversed.

This is so serious for the future of our country that the matter should not be resolved by the kind of ‘sleight of hand’ used by those who wrote the script for the CMOs’ statement.”

In their statement there are two short paragraphs that deal with the risk of fluoridation, which the scientists refer to as “sleight of hand.” Within the paragraphs, the CMOs do not mention the numerous studies demonstrating neurotoxicity and do not mention the lawsuit against the U.S. EPA. These points were made in their open letter to the prime minister in which they said they:

“… sincerely hope that your health advisers will acknowledge the strong scientific evidence of fluoride’s neurotoxicity (and other ill health effects) and put the health of our people above promoting what appears to be a well-intended but clearly outdated practice of water fluoridation.

This would not be the first time that a well-entrenched medical or dental practice has had to give way to advances in scientific understanding of unexpected side effects.”

However, as reported in The Times, “Chris Whitty, the chief medical officer for England, has dismissed safety concerns over the compounds, saying there is no evidence that it causes cancer and that claims about health risks are ‘exaggerated and unevidenced’.”

Strong Evidence Fluoride Is Neurotoxic

One of the first studies demonstrating fluoride has an adverse effect on children’s IQ was originally published in 1989 in the Chinese Journal of Control of Endemic Diseases. Since then, the Fluoride Action Network has recorded dozens of studies that have analyzed the relationship between IQ and fluoride. 

Of these, 70 human studies and 60 animal studies have demonstrated an association between exposure and a reduction in learning or memory capacity. The human studies had children and adult participants that provide compelling evidence of damage. The Fluoride Action Network also published an analysis of the challenges associated with the studies that did not find an association.

Some of the strongest studies demonstrating an association were published in 2019 and 2020. The claims made by proponents of fluoridation that there is only “one or two studies” finding harm, or that they are only from areas with naturally high fluoride levels, are no longer relevant. The scientific evidence can now be considered overwhelming and undeniable. The studies include:

Green 2019 — published in the Journal of the American Medical Association’s journal on Pediatrics. It reported substantial IQ loss in Canadian children from prenatal exposure to fluoride from water fluoridation.

Riddell 2019 — published in Environment International. It found a shocking 284% increase in the prevalence of ADHD among children in fluoridated communities in Canada compared to nonfluoridated ones.

Till 2020 — published in Environment International. It reported that children who were bottle-fed in Canadian fluoridated communities lost up to 8.8 IQ points compared to those in nonfluoridated communities.

Uyghurturk 2020 — published in Environmental Health, it found that pregnant women in fluoridated communities in California had significantly higher levels of fluoride in their urine than those in nonfluoridated communities. The levels found in their urine were the same as those found to lower children’s IQ in past studies.

Malin 2019 — published in Environmental Health. It linked a doubling of symptoms indicative of sleep apnea in adolescents in the U.S. to levels of fluoride in the drinking water. The link between fluoride and sleep disturbances may be through fluoride’s effect on the pineal gland.

Malin 2019 — published in Environment International. It reported that exposure to fluoridated water led to a reduction in kidney and liver function among adolescents in the U.S. and suggested those with poorer kidney or liver function may absorb more fluoride bodies. The National Institutes of Health funded this study.

Neurotoxicity: Significant Risk

The level of evidence that fluoride is neurotoxic now far exceeds the evidence that was in place when lead was banned from gasoline. A recent review by Danish scientist, Harvard professor and neurotoxicity expert Dr. Philippe Grandjean also concluded that:

“… there is little doubt that developmental neurotoxicity is a serious risk associated with elevated fluoride exposure, whether due to community water fluoridation, natural fluoride release from soil minerals, or tea consumption, especially when the exposure occurs during early development.

Given that developmental neurotoxicity is considered to cause permanent adverse effects, the next generation’s brain health presents a crucial issue in the risk-benefit assessment for fluoride exposure.”

Fluoride Is an Endocrine Disrupter That Affects the Brain

Evidence shows that fluoride as an endocrine disrupter affects both sleep and the brain. It contributes to the rising rate of children and adults with attention deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD). One study published in 2015 demonstrated that children with higher rates of medically diagnosed ADHD resided in states where there was a greater proportion of people consuming fluoridated water.

In 2006, the National Resource Council of the National Academies labeled fluoride an endocrine disruptor. According to the National Institutes of Health in 2014, “Research shows that endocrine disruptors may pose the greatest risk during prenatal and early postnatal development when organ and neural systems are forming.” The NIH has since removed that statement from their website.

Exposure to fluoride is also linked to thyroid disease, which in turn contributes to heart disease, obesity, depression and other health problems. Fluoride has an adverse effect on sleep patterns. One study found chronic low-level exposure altered sleep patterns in adolescents aged 16 to 19.

They found fluoride levels of .52 mg per liter was associated with a 1.97 times higher likelihood of sleep apnea at least once per week. This level is lower than the current recommendation of 0.7 mg/L.

The researchers theorized that the accumulation of fluoride in the pineal gland may affect sleep patterns. Additionally, the researchers wrote that in adults, fluoride concentrations in the pineal gland correlate with calcification, which in turn is associated with a decrease in melatonin production, lower sleep time and lower REM sleep percentage.

Health and Human Services Lowers Level of Fluoride in 2015

In 2010, a study published in the Journal of the American Dental Association concluded that there was an association between fluorosis and children’s teeth and intake from infant formula and other dietary sources. They wrote:

“Results suggest that prevalence of mild dental fluorosis could be reduced by avoiding ingestion of large quantities of fluoride from reconstituted powdered concentrate infant formula and fluoridated dentifrice.”

The CDC also followed suit in 2010, warning that mixing powdered or liquid infant formula with fluoridated water could increase the chance of a child developing enamel fluorosis.These recommendations have since been deleted.

However, your teeth are the window to your bones, and when you see damage to your teeth you must ask the question: What kind of damage to your bones is occurring?

In April 2015, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services admitted the fluoride levels they had been promoting damaged children’s teeth.Major dental fluorosis was apparent in 41% of teenagers, which includes white spots, yellow coloring or pitted enamel.

Despite levels of fluoride that were high enough to cause fluorosis, the CDC also reported that 42% of children and adolescents ages 6 to 19 years and 90% of adults had cavities in their permanent teeth. Although some health experts continue to promote fluoride as protection against cavities, it’s apparently not doing the job.

Instead of completely removing fluoride from the water to protect bone health in 2015, the HHS announced they would simply reduce the level of fluoride in the water to minimize “the risk of cosmetic fluorosis in the general population.” To stress the idea that fluorosis is solely a cosmetic issue negates the potential risk to bone health.

By 2020, the American Dental Association was fully on board with fluoridating water in the U.S. In a letter to the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, they noted their members agreed that the 2018 edition of Fluoridation Facts, the ADA’s resource on community water fluoridation, answered questions on the relationship between consumption and lowered intelligence or behavioral disorders.

Choosing to blatantly ignore all the studies showing fluoride is a dangerous neurotoxin, they stated, “The evidence from individual studies and systematic reviews does not support claims of a causal relationship.” Additionally, they urged that the National Toxicology Program Monograph on Fluoride Exposure and Neurodevelopmental and Cognitive Health should move its classification of fluoride from a “presumed” neurotoxin to an “unknown” neurotoxin.

Their justification for this was to claim: “There is not a wide body of literature examining fluoride as a potential neurotoxin.”

In other words, 70 human and 60 animal studies were not enough to “support claims of a causal relationship” and is not a “wide body of literature examining fluoride as a potential neurotoxin.”

Help End the Practice of Water Fluoridation

What might be assumed from statements made by politicians and experts, is there is a greater concern over tooth decay than there is over loss of intelligence, brain health in adults and children and damage done through endocrine disruption.

For citizens in the U.K., a petition has been initiated in Parliament recommending that instead of adding fluoride to compel the entire nation to ingest a neurotoxin, “it would be better if people brush their teeth with toothpaste daily and monitor intake of sugar.”

U.K. citizens can sign the petition at this link. If it reaches 100,000 signatures, Parliament must consider it for debate. For those who live in an area with fluoridated water, you can protect your health by filtering the water supply.

Because fluoride is a very small molecule, it’s difficult to filter once added, but reverse osmosis filtration can be effective. Clean pure water is a prerequisite for optimal health; thus, the only real solution is to stop the practice of artificial water fluoridation.

Apple Fritter Pull-Apart Bread

by Dodie Dennis

We are currently in the middle of our 2021 autumn roadtrip out west to visit our new grandson, Carter.

A few days ago, we spent an afternoon at the Southwest Arizona-Sonoran Desert Museum in Tucson. The next day we visited the Casa Grande National Monument south of Phoenix in Coolidge. Last night we attended a John Fogerty concert at Talking Stick Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Along the way, I found a recipe for apple fritter pull-apart bread that is made with delicious and delicate a sweet yeast dough and sugary, buttery diced apples that are caramelized.

The dough is rolled out, topped with the diced apples and then sliced in squares, stacked in groups of four, and just stuffed into the pan. This recipe is just downright fun. The pan went into the oven, and an hour later, sitting before me were apple-laced slabs of heaven ready to be pulled apart and devoured! You can make this with the homemade dough recipe below or you can make it with refrigerated croissant dough. Just promise me you’ll make it!


• 3 containers refrigerated croissant dough, rolled out into one solid rectangle or homemade dough below

For the dough

• 3 cups flour

• 1 package yeast

• 1/2 teaspoon salt

• 1 cup brown sugar

• 1/4 cup water

• 1 egg, beaten

• 3/4 cup milk

• 1/4 cup butter (I used Kerrygold Triple


For the filling

• 6 large crisp apples, peeled and diced

• 2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice

• 1 cup brown sugar

• 1 teaspoon vanilla

• 2 tablespoons butter

• 1 teaspoon cinnamon

• 1 tablespoon cornstarch

For the glaze

• 1 cup powdered sugar

• 3 to 4 teaspoons milk, half and half, or water


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 9-by-5-inch bread pan.

In a skillet, cook apples, lemon juice, brown sugar, vanilla, butter, cinnamon and cornstarch until mixture is thickened. Set aside to cool.

Heat the milk in a small saucepan until it bubbles; remove from heat. Add the butter and stir until melted; set aside.

Put flour, yeast, brown sugar and salt in a bowl, mix well.

Add the water, egg and milk/butter mixture.

Mix until dough forms into a ball, kneading for about 5 minutes.

On a floured surface, roll dough into a rectangle.

Evenly spread apple mixture over dough.

Cut dough into even 3-inch squares.

Stack four squares onto each other with spatula. Stack them side by side in pan until piles are used up. Bake 50 minutes. If top gets too brown, place foil over top and continue to bake. In a bowl, mix together powdered sugar and milk, cream or water until smooth.

Remove bread from oven and pour on glaze. Pull apart and enjoy!

Texas Files Against Facebook in Supreme Court

The United States Supreme Court is about to be tested again regarding Big Tech censorship and law.

“Facebook’s wrongful interpretation of Section 230 is being used to protect social media giants, while Americans are being silenced,” stated Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, explaining while the Lone Star State were filing against them in court. “A disturbing increase in heinous crimes such as human trafficking and illegal activity have eroded the fabric of our great nation. ”

The State of Texas has filed an amicus brief in the Supreme Court arguing against Facebook’s vague and inaccurate legal interpretation of Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act.

Facebook’s stance and Section 230 is intended to shield them from liability for human trafficking that was facilitated using the social media platform. This would leave trafficking victims without effective relief or financial remedy while Facebook takes advantage of this vulnerable demographic in exchange for advertising dollars.

Texas Capitol

Texas is recommending that Section 230 be amended to clarify that online platforms may be held accountable and to effectuate Congress’s intent to protect Americans from exploitation, illegal activity, and violence.

“I will fight to uphold the rule of law and hold internet platforms like Facebook accountable,” Attorney General Paxton said.

Car Collector Auction Hits $37.5 Million in Sales

Scottsdale, Arizona based Barrett-Jackson, billed as “The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions,” continued at full throttle during their inaugural Houston auction at NRG Center last month with $37.5 million in sales.

Leading the way was the $1.98 million sale of a 1979 Porsche 928 driven by Tom Cruise in the film “Risky Business.” It was a world record auction sale of any Porsche 928 from any year.

They continued to fill the demand for collector car non-fungible tokens (NFTs) with two movie-themed Motoclub SparkNFTs.

NFTs are not the actual cars, but “the digital packaging of an exclusive video, an illustration, and three still images,” indicated the car collections dealer. “It’s a digital piece of automobilia of sorts commemorating the sale of a spectacular VIN 001 vehicle.”

🔹The 1959 Cadillac “Ghostbusters” Ectomobile Re-Creation NFT sold for $8,000.

🔹The 1994 Toyota Supra from “The Fast & the Furious” franchise NFT hammered in at $6,000.

Barrett-Jackson’s first auction in the Lone Star State featured a 100% no-reserve docket with nearly 500 collectible vehicles that sold for more than $35.4 million. The Automobilia Auction featured 279 pieces that sold for over $1 million, marking the company’s most successful non-Scottsdale Automobilia Auction. Barrett-Jackson also continued to trailblaze with the auction of two NFTs, which brought in a combined $14,000.

“This was a banner year filled with historic events made up of over 200 world-record auction sales that are forever etched into automotive history,” says Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson.

“Thanks to our sponsors, consignors, bidders and guests, our inaugural Houston auction was an extraordinary extension of this year’s success. We’re far more than a car auction; we’re an immersive automotive experience with exhibitors, thrill rides and activities that rivals any event. We can’t wait for our January 2022 Scottsdale auction, when we’ll celebrate everything we’ve accomplished over our 50-year history, in true Barrett-Jackson fashion.”

Domestic Violence: 20 People Per Minute Abused

Each October, the United States observes National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

There is an epidemic in the nation, according to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence.

• On average, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States. During one year, this equates to more than 10 million women and men.

• 1 in 4 women and 1 in 9 men experience severe intimate partner physical violence, intimate partner-contact sexual violence and/or intimate partner stalking.

• 1 in 7 women and 1 in 25 men have been injured by an intimate partner.

• 1 in 10 women has been raped by an intimate partner.

Intimate partner violence is not always easy to recognize, because it is often about controlling someone’s mind and emotions as much as hurting their body. The signs may not be as obvious as a bruise, but it’s important to be aware of what some of the indicators might be. Even for those living in an abusive relationship, it can be difficult to recognize that what they are experiencing is abuse. Some common warning signs of abuse may include:

• Jealousy.

• Unpredictability (loving one minute and mean the next).

• Cruelty to animals.

• Verbal abuse.

• Extremely controlling behavior.

• Antiquated beliefs about roles of women and men in relationships.

• Forced sex or disregard of their partner’s unwillingness to have sex or to engage in certain sex acts.

• Blaming the victim for anything bad that happens, including the abuse.

• Sabotage or obstruction of the victim’s ability to work or attend school.

• Controlling all finances.

• Controlling what victim wears and how they act.

• Embarrassment or humiliation of the victim in front of others.

Why Big Pharma Supports Biden, Fauci and Pelosi

“I don’t want their money,” President Donald J. Trump announced at an Atlanta drug addiction event in 2019. “They have got to do what is right.”

Trump’s announcement against Big Pharma brought shockwaves throughout the halls of Congress, the Senate and Deep State Capitol Hill.

He was actually rejecting campaign contributions from the powerful pharmaceutical industry, calling them out for their role in the national opioid addiction epidemic.

Trump’s administration continued with their scrutiny of pharmaceutical companies–despite mainstream media and Democratic counter attacks–as part of his initiative to combat addiction to prescription painkillers.

The week before Trump’s declaration, Federal prosecutors charged opioid distributor Rochester Drug Cooperative and its former chief executive with felonies — the first case of its kind related to the opioid crisis.

“We are holding big pharma accountable,” Trump said.

Dr. Anthony Fauci was visibly upset. He went into high gear with phone calls, emails and personal meetings with Deep State operatives, key Democrats and his China connections.

Within a year the world experienced a pandemic. Unknown to Trump at the time, the tentacles of Big Pharma reached into the highest levels of government, including Vice President Mike Pence and his staff.

Fast forward to today, where there are only three FDA-authorized companies authorized to distribute the extremely controversial experimental COVID vaccines in the United States. That’s not all they have in common. Each has former FDA Commissioners in their higher ranks.

The Freedom First Network were early to report the shameful drug industry habit in America.

Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, and the company that founded Moderna, have each rostered a series of former top ranking government officials into key high level positions in their respective organizations.

In plain words, they bought themselves former FDA commissioners.

Among the top ten stocks on by U.S. Congress members are Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson and Moderna.


Former FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb, sits on the board of Pfizer.

🔹A frequent Pfizer-sponsored CNBC guest, Gottlieb maintains several thousand shares of Pfizer stock, and his compensated well into the six figures on an annual basis.

🔹Gottlieb earns millions from his continually increasing board appointments to an overabundance of pharmaceutical and healthcare companies.

🔹The pandemic profiteer also sits on the boards of Illumina and Tempus Labs, which sell FDA-authorized COVID-19 test kits.

🔹Additionally, Gottlieb sits on the board of Aetion, which has partnered with the FDA on researching COVID-19 policy.


Stephen Hahn actually led the FDA when it authorized Moderna’s COVID shots.

🔹He recently took an executive level position with Flagship Pioneering, the company that launched Moderna.

🔹Flagship holds 20 million shares of Moderna stock, which as of October 16, 2021, is valued at $6.5 Billion.

🔹They earned $1.4 billion through the sale of Moderna stock earlier this year.

Johnson & Johnson

Mark McClellan was the FDA commissioner from 2002-2004 (and served in other high-ranking government posts).

🔹He has maintained a board of directors seat with pharma giant Johnson & Johnson since 2013.

🔹McClellan owns thousands of shares in the company and receives around $300,000 annually.

This practice is common in government, politics, lobbyists, and influential business peddlers country wide–from municipal to federal levels–but the use of public-sector private-sector revolving door system is an addiction of corruption.

Basically, this dishonest practice imposes their will on the American public and creates wealth for executives, shareholders, and politicians in the process.

Whether it be former Dominion employees working for the EAC, former Hedge fund managers working for the SEC, former generals working for the military complex, or former FDA Commissioners working for Big Pharma, the conflicts of interest are alarming.

After the Obama Administration left D.C., the Center for Public Integrity and other investigative organizations discovered that the companies producing drugs like Percocet, Vicodin and OxyContin collectively handed more than $900 million over to senators and representatives in every single state, as a means by which to ensure new measures restricting distribution of an access to opioids would not come into force.

Reports indicated this is about 800% more than the amount spent by gun lobbyists.

This practice of movement between the government and big business is dangerous due to the conflicts of interest that arise and should be stopped.

Breaking: Unvaccinated Intelligence Clever Journeys

Vaccine Remorse Grows as New Data and Research Confirms Serious Dangers

Researchers from the Delphi Group at Carnegie Mellon University discovered that 20.5% of medical assistants, emergency medical technicians and home health, nursing, psychiatric or personal-care aides, were personally opposed to COVID vaccination.

These researchers, for the past 19 months, collected over 70 million unique predictions of the short-term trajectory of COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths in the US at the state and county level.

As those in the medical industry experienced and learned more about COVID and how governments are reacting to it, they gained more intelligence–some to the degree they wished they had not been inoculated.

🔹A follow up study revealed out of that group, 23.4% of those who took the experimental vaccines now wished they had not.

🔹24.1% said if they had to make the decision all over again, they would elect not to be injected.

In totality, this means at least half of medical workers have not now, or would not then, receive the experimental vaccines.

The now famous Sorensen/Zelenko Vaccine Death Report has become a real enemy of Big Pharma, corrupt governments and questionable medical practices.

🔹Their released documents provide evidence that millions (not thousands) have died from the vaccine and/or suffered horrific disabling vaccine injuries.

🔹They quantified that VAERS databases at CDC and EudraVigilance and MHRA UK (and the WHO’s VigiAccess) only comprise less than 5% of the true occurrences.

🔹This was also shared by statistical analysts in the Harvard Pilgrim Study.

🔹It is widely known by physicians and nurses that adverse vaccine reactions are simply not recorded, acknowledged, or reported by many hospitals, clinics, and doctors because the political hold of vaccines (ensured by Big Pharma via lobbying and propaganda) is still entrenched, and because doctors don’t wish to accept liability for harm.

What Brave Medical Professionals Are Saying

🔹Dr. Rochagné Kilian, who works in the emergency room of a hospital in Owen Sound, Ontario, said around eighty percent of the patients she was seeing in the ER were “double-vaxxed.”

“How many people are we going to kill if we keep following this narrative?” she asked.

🔹Dr. Mollie James, a recently resigned ICU doctor, said she left her position in protest against the vaccine mandates.

“I’m pushing back because hospitals have an absolute commitment to follow the data,” she told Realclearpolitics.

“Ignoring natural immunity in a vaccine discussion is just criminal,” Dr. James continued. “A lot of people who are opposed to the mandates, or who aren’t interested in a vaccine, are in my situation where we got sick taking care of patients.”

“We have natural immunity which has been shown to be broad and enduring – actually, that has put us at a higher risk for having the vaccine,” she noted. “I took care of a patient who had an infection. He waited the 90 days which is recommended to get the vaccine, and he showed up in my ICU 24 hours later with a cardiac arrest.”

“So I have personally seen the implications of having a vaccine after a natural infection and I’m just not interested in that.”

🔹John Matland, a New York, CAT-scan technologist, worked with coronavirus patients for months during the hardest days of the epidemic.

“I’m not an anti-vaxxer. I’ve had the flu shot,” he told the National Review. “For me, it’s specifically the darkness and the silence around the information that’s emerging about these vaccines, and the way that it’s not discussed – not in the media, and not by some doctors.”

If the vaccine is so important why do our government leaders and illegal aliens not have to take it?

What You Should Do About Money Scams

Money scams are on the rise as more liberal district attorneys fail to charge crimes. With holidays approaching, it’s important to arm ourselves with knowledge.

Be wary of get-rich-quick schemes. If an offer seems too good to be true, it probably is.

  • Avoid sending money or giving your account information to anyone you don’t know or a company you can’t verify as a legitimate. If you send money as part of a scam, you may not be able to get it back.

  • Beware of scammers impersonating a tech support company, fraud department, or government agency through a phone call or pop-up message on your computer. Do not provide your account information or access code, or give them control to your computer.

  • Be wary of an unexpected request for payment for a good, service or fee through any form of communication (email, phone call, social media, etc.) Do your research and don’t be afraid to end communication with the person making the request.

  • Don’t send money back to someone who has provided a check or overpayment for goods or services. 

  • Be suspicious if someone requests your account information or assistance with a financial transaction, such as cashing a check on their behalf or transferring money for them.
