The Pharmacratic Inquisition: Deceiving the Masses

Tricks the general public, largely via confusing cause and effect

In the example of the “FOX ‘Friends” broadcast of January 25, 2008, the talking faces exploit confusion over Coca leaves versus Coca paste- a highly concentrated refined derivative, over a misspeaking or perhaps mistranslation of Venezualean President Hugo Chaves remarks of what he receives from Bolivian President Evo Morales.

Its false theological basis:

Certain drugs are simply “bad” with little or no known acceptable use.

Its what you hear from the likes of people as William Bennett.

Its whats used to thus justify doing bad things to people with the bad drugs.

The reality:

No objective standardized criteria. What objective criteria did the US Congress adopt in selecting to prohibit Opiates, Coca, cocaine, Marijuana and other substances? How long did the US Congress debate Marijuana in 1937 when they then banned it?

Double Standards galore: where’s the concern over plastic foods? It’s not anti-pleasure, just look at the example of Viagra.

Nor is it against just certain pleasures- e.g the double standard with the relative highs of alcohol and marijuana

The drugs that were made illegal were no more dangerous then those that remained legal in comparable forms, with the law completely disregarding the considerably different pharamkenectics of dilute and concentrated drugs.

Prohibition ensured that they would not be in comparable forms.

BBC Betrays Freedom of Medicine: Deletes Info on alternatives

Complementary Medicine

BBC Health Website Deletes Complementary Medicine

Last week the controllers of BBC Health (HYPERLINK "" uk/health
HYPERLINK "" , the health section on one of the most accessed websites in the world, decided to remove all coverage of complementary medicine!

They used to have substantial coverage with over 40 pages on this subject covering all the major therapies, their pros and cons, evidence for their effectiveness, how to find a qualified practitioner, etc.

However the site has in recent months been sent a deluge of letters and emails claiming that complementary therapies such as homeopathy and cranial osteopathy should be removed. As a result large chunks of this part of the site were simply removed overnight and now, following recent cutbacks, it was decided that, rather than update this part of the site, it should simply be removed altogether!

It may seem incredible that a public service site this prominent can deem complementary medicine so insignificant that it no longer warrants any coverage other than the odd news story. This is despite the fact that complementary medicine is used favorably by a significant proportion of the population (recent surveys have estimated that around 1 in 5 Britons use it at some point or other) and that increasing numbers of people are now seeking to train in these therapies.

However, as the 'quack busters' become more organised and active, evidence of the backlash against complementary medicine is appearing all over the place - such as the removal of PCT funding for homeopathy, the threatened closure of the homeopathic hospitals, many negative news stories in the press and so on.

Rather than taking a reasoned view and considering the evidence from good research studies on complementary medicine some groups seem simply hell bent on trying to 'stamp out' complementary medicine in any way possible. The BBCi removal of complementary medicine coverage (which has been in place for almost 15 years!) is one example.

If you believe information pages on it should be returned to BBCi, please, please take just a minute to express your views using their online comment form to make your view known


As a public service company they have to listen to your views so your email will make a difference. Apparently for all the many letters and emails that they received that were against complementary medicine they only received a handful in support. Therefore if you are in support please let them know so they may revise their thinking on this subject.
Please act as soon as possible and pass on these details to anyone else you know who may also be willing to write in support of complementary medicine.

Criminal Apostate Dubai Kidnapps, Imprisions Human for 4 Years for Speck of Cannabis on Shoe Soul

Perhaps those running this country have no soul?

Dubai has sufficient oil revenues to pay off its transgressions as those below

Briton jailed for four years in Dubai after customs find cannabis weighing less than a grain of sugar under his shoe

Keith Brown

Jailed: Keith Brown had a speck of cannabis on his shoe
A father-of-three who was found with a microscopic speck of cannabis stuck to the bottom of one of his shoes has been sentenced to four years in a Dubai prison.

Keith Brown, a council youth development officer, was travelling through the United Arab Emirates on his way back to England when he was stopped as he walked through Dubai's main airport.

A search by customs officials uncovered a speck of cannabis weighing just 0.003g - so small it would be invisible to the naked eye and weighing less than a grain of sugar - on the tread of one of his shoes.

Dubai International Airport is a major hub for the Middle East and thousands of Britons pass through it every year to holiday in the glamorous beach and shopping haven.

But many of those tourists and business travellers are likely to be unaware of the strict zero-tolerance drugs policy in the UAE.

One man has even been jailed for possession of three poppy seeds left over from a bread roll he ate at Heathrow Airport. Painkiller codeine is also banned.

If suspicious of a traveller, customs officials can use high-tech equipment to uncover even the slightest trace of drugs.

Mr Brown was detained and arrested in September last year and has been held in a cell with three other men in the city prison ever since.

This week the youth worker, who has two young children and a partner at home in Smethwick, West Midlands, was sentenced to four years in prison.

A 25-year-old Briton who was found with a similar speck in one pocket as he arrived on holiday has been awaiting sentence since November.

Meanwhile a Big Brother TV executive has so far been held without charge for five days after being arrested for possessing the health supplement melatonin.

The authorities claim to have discovered 0.01g of hashish in his luggage.

Last night Mr Brown's brother Lee said his case "defied belief".

"For that sort of amount common sense should prevail, from where it was found it was obviously something that had been crushed on the floor - it could have come from anywhere."

Rastafarian Mr Brown had been returning from a short trip to Ethiopia, where one of his children lives and where he owns property.

He was travelling with his partner Imani, who was also stopped and detained for more than a week.

Normally he flew direct to and from the UK, but decided to stop off in Dubai.

"He was incensed when he called me," said driving instructor Lee, 57. "It would be funny if the circumstances weren't so unpleasant.

"Bugs are crawling out of his mattress when he's sleeping. His family are frantic with worry and can't call him."

Last night campaign group Fair Trials International advised visitors to Dubai and Abu Dhabi to "take extreme caution".

Chief Executive Catherine Wolthuizen said: "We have seen a steep increase in such cases over the last 18 months.

"Customs authorities are using highly sensitive new equipment to conduct extremely thorough searches on travellers and if they find any amount - no matter how minute - it will be enough to attract a mandatory four-year prison sentence."

Mrs Wolthuizen added: "We even have reports of the imprisonment of a Swiss man for 'possession' of three poppy seeds on his clothing after he ate a bread roll at Heathrow.

Cat Le-Huy

Held: A campaign is underway to secure the release of Cat Le-Huy from a Dubai jail

"What many travellers may not realise is that they can be deemed to be in possession of such banned substances if they can be detected in their urine or bloodstream, or even in tiny, trace amounts on their person."

Only two months after Mr Brown was stopped economics graduate Robert Dalton was detained in almost identical circumstances.

Mr Dalton, from Gravesend, on Kent was with two friends when he was stopped and asked to empty his pockets.

Officials found 0.03g of cannabis in a small amount of fluff. He is currently on trial and if convicted, is likely receive a four-year prison sentence.

Last night his brother Peter, 26, told how it took 24 hours to find out why he had been stopped.

"As we understand, the amount of cannabis was barely visible to the human eye and was at the bottom of the pocket of an old pair of jeans.

"He's not a drug user, but he goes clubbing and the speck was so small."

Last week Cat Le-Huy, a London-based German national, was arrested on arrival at the airport.

Mr Le-Huy, 31, head of technology with Big Brother production company Endemol, was arrested on suspicion of possessing illegal drugs after customs officers found melatonin, a health supplement used for jet lag available over the counter both in Dubai and in the US.

Authorities also claim they discovered fragments in one of his bags which they believe to be hashish. Fair Trials International said the amount was 0.01g.

FOX "Friends" Brandish Drug Policy Dopiness

Feigning Confusion

FOX “Friends” Dopes Confuse Highly concentrated “coca” paste with natural coca leaves confusing a toxic-mania concentrate with an extremely safe and effective herb

FOX “Friends” with Steve Doocy, Gretchen Carlson, and Brian Kilmeade

“What A Dope”- a substance, or those they are selling this conception to: you!

Confusing An Herb with an ultra concentrated, chemically refined substance

This thing, aired January 25, 2008, was the FOX News response to reports of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez’s recent pro- Coca statements during a speech he gave to the Venezuelan National Assembly, stated in the January 20, 2008 Miami Herald:
“I chew Coca every day in the morning … and look how I am (while gesturing to his biceps) … [and, Bolivian President Evo Morales “sends me Coca paste.”
FOX though spins this to confuse the viewer- as typified by its caption “What A Dope” --

This starts with Gretchen Carlson – the woman in the middle – simultaneously confessing her own ignorance while encouraging it for her viewers:
"Alright, something I never knew, that, I know there were some dictators around the world, but did you know, but you know that some of the dictators are apparently allegedly are “drug addicts” as well, that might explain a few things..."
HC now admitting in his speech which went widely undocumented btw that he chews coca every morning and he also eats something called coca paste btw which is addictive And that he gets it from Bolivia's 'dictator'.
"I don’t know my narcotics very well. "
Indeed. Especially when Coca is not a narcotic; it’s a stimulant.

Nor does she know her stimulants, nor their different forms very well, apparently, for though she tags Coca as bad for being addictive cocaine, she fails to note the huge pharmacological differences between Coca leaves, which generally contains 0.5-1% cocaine versus Coca paste, which is a highly concentrated substance made by processing Coca leaves in various petro chemicals.

Neither does the guy on the right saying little, followed by the guy on the left
“They take the plant, ground it up and make the paste.”
No mention of concentration. Ground up Coca is simply the green powder contained in Coca tea bags that are customarily sold in Peru and Bolivia and over the internet. Coca paste is a yellowish, off white paste, made by taking ground up Coca leaves and then wash this in various chemicals that may include kerosene and or gasoline, as part of a refining process resulting in a significantly higher cocaine content. Whereas Coca leaves (whole or ground up) contain about 0.5 to 1 % cocaine, Coca paste contains much much more, perhaps 80% cocaine.

Gretchen is obviously too stupid or uncaring to google “Coca” and educate herself about a topic of televised discussion.

All three are obviously too stupid-- or too unethical in pretending to be so stupid -- in altogether dismissing concentration-potency, as if coffee and tea were the same thing as chemically refined concentrated caffeine.

It’s the sort of stupidly of college students owing from alcohol because its legal who would be too afraid to try marijuana because it was illegal and hence somehow more dangerous then alcohol.

Beware when they use the term “DOPE”.
