This post, renamed as second part of the original started October 2014, being published early July, 2017.  It is “Part 2 of 3” from that original, although each has a slightly different focus and title. This one’s full title is:

Other Considerations on the NASMHPD, MHA, and This Type of Networking (Oct. 25, 2014 post updated June/July, 2017)  (short-link ending “-761” and all three characters there are numbers).

I am publishing it July 3 (Tuesday) evening, 2017 at 18,000 words (!!).  Some images will be removed and others updated within one or two days, post-publication.  The removed images and/or quotes will be seen on Post #3; they represent an overlap.  Also, know that at least half the contents (top part) and anywhere you see a screenprint image in the bottom half (or where otherwise marked) are 2017 updates.  The updates are to best clarify the material, or display it better than I could in 2014.

“The ocean is wide, and my boat (room to describe it on a single post) is so small!” if I may borrow (and apply differently) a motto from the Children’s Defense Fund.  The topic is a big one…this post does provide some signposts and navigation points on the compass…

(I see I omitted the first, and more important, part of the motto — “Dear Lord, be good to me” see logo):

self-explanatory logo and motto: CDF claims to be strong, effective, INDEPENDENT voice for ALL the children of America. It is, in fact, a 501©3 and as such is benefitting from tax exemption, and its revenue sources, as well as the strong reputation of its founders and leaders.

While I’m there (section in next background-color):

INDEPENDENT — REALLY?  Any tax-exempt organization, whatever its cause, either operates on the strength of 100% volunteers, or has some revenues, expenses, assets and liabilities, and many of them also have employees.  This one has 303 employees (latest tax return shown below), but spent slightly more on “Other expenses” than on its employees.The tax exemption is courtesy a situation in this country where it’s very easy to go tax-exempt, but those who do not do this individually, will generally speaking, if earning enough to be taxed, be paying a higher percentage than those corporations which do not, providing an incentive to form as many as possible nationwide.  Money is attracted to (tends to flow towards) places which increase tax-exemption and better preserve profits, in general.

CDF’s claiming to represent ALL the children of America actually goes against the grain of the existing systems of representation in place for them, including state legislatures, U.S. Congress, and local representatives.  I am well aware that saying this regarding a well-known civil-rights oriented organization may read like one-step from blasphemy and is a volatile statement. They certainly didn’t represent my children…

This post isn’t about the CDF, but it takes only a few minutes to look up most tax returns (other than those which are simply nearly impossible to find — and one came up in this post below, the NASHMPD Research Institute, a.k.a. “NRI-inc.org.”

ORGANIZATION NAME   ST YR FORM PP TOTAL ASSETS EIN
Children’s Defense Fund DC 2015 990 62 $27,749,303 52-0895622
Childrens Defense Fund DC 2014 990 86 $31,911,729 52-0895622
Childrens Defense Fund DC 2013 990 46 $35,047,275 52-0895622

Briefly, (a stroll/scroll through even one Form 990 above) notice that this particular organization (Sched R) has two related entities in D.C., a total of three out of the same street address in D.C., benefits from a $4.9M tax-exempt revenue bond from D.C., took government and private grants both, and $1.6M from fund-raising (of which about 50% was expenses), and (program service revenues) earned $3M running “Freedom Schools.”  However, (the same page, Part VIII, Revenues) shows that in selling $13M of securities it amazingly, earned only $802.  How does one do that? …. Its $1.6M grants to others (Sched I) are part, but not the major part of operations, however, a quick look shows what was granted out went, some to school districts, some to schools, some to direct to religious organizations (judging by the names) and some to foundations, in various cities.

In addition, the President of the Board (Marian Wright Edelman) presumably received also a tax-deduction in renting a room in her SC home for $1/year to an office in the state (Sched L).  In the process of paging through the tax returns, one repeatedly sees  “See additional data” where, for some reason, this major organization didn’t feel like coughing up basic information on the forms provided even when there was plenty of room. One thing however that was not skimped on, in the place provided on those IRS forms, was the organization’s purpose on Page 1, and again   the top of Page 2.

My point being here, take a little time to take a look at the tax returns when hearing about (and certainly before donating to) ANY charity. Don’t just toss a coin and don’t judge just by whether the cause is progressive or conservative, or has emotional appeal based on civil rights themes from the 1960s.  Also, I personally would not donate to any organization claiming, on its website, to represent ALL the children of America (further qualified — somewhat — on their tax returns), or claims to be an independent voice, when it’s a 501©3s.

(See more at Slogans vs. Speech-by-IRS-Forms 990: When the Resonance is in Conflict (A Quick Look at a Well-known Nonprofit, Children’s Defense Fund) (Independence Day 2017) (case-sensitive short-link ends “-7af”)((link is active now but only accurate when the draft is published).

By contrast with Children’s Defense Fund, and all 501©3s, -©4s, or -©6s not specialized as I’m describing in these posts, the type of organizations I’m focused on in this theme (opening words to this post: “…NGA, NCSC, NCSL, NCSEA, NCJFCJ, NCCD, NACC,  NASMHPD, not to mention ICMA”)

  • obtain and receive/exchange among themselves at times, money (actually, resources of various kinds) in the name of representing more than “all children”but as representing the states  as a whole,** or departments or public institutions (courts, legislatures, state mental health program directors or city/county Managers as to the ICMA) within state (and some, local – ICMA) governments.  **(not mentioned in that list, but I have mentioned, “CSG — Council of State Governments and its CSG Justice Center, Inc.” — boasts about being the only national organization to represent ALL THREE branches of (state) governments:  Executive, Legislative and Judicial).
  • They do this by implication and justification as if on behalf of all people — but have chosen to operate from within associations formed in the private sector out of reach of the average person, or the common man — but NOT out of reach of the corporate + foundation sponsors, who are solicited to participate.  This includes, for several of the above not just one or two, as I recall from having previously looked, representatives of major pharmaceutical, chemical, telecommunications, investment management, real estate development, law, and other fields.
  • They mix corporate and currently-serving government boards of directors, AND funds, AND are operating in a coordinated, “in-synche” fashion with each other towards (a) their elected leaders constituents (respectively, wherever they be) and (b) the federal government.

In other words, they are playing intermediary, doing it nonprofit, and at public expense — but without adequate public oversight and certainly without informed consent or representation.

Their, this type of organization’s, individual and collective existence, let alone purpose and operations, concerns me far more than exaggerated claims or funky tax returns from, for example, a single though well-known entity, the CDF.  The NGA, NCSC,… organizations’ significance is easily under-estimated through a general unconsciousness  of their existence  thanks to under-reporting on them as nonprofit entities, let alone as they are: specialized nonprofit entities with government names representing government offices or functions, working in an intentionally coordinated fashion towards privately-determined agenda,  on say, the major news media (on-line or print)). How often do you overhear ANY conversations about them as a significant influence upon governments (plural) in the country, whether in passing, from friends, strangers, or in general social discussions of the challenges of this country, or possible source of its present problems?

In this post’s singling out the NASHMPD, I am pointing to this type of organization whose purpose and “reason for being” is focused on the mental health field which, in parts, deals with drugging of patients, or helping people detox from other drug and alcohol abuse, and in systems involving intricate, and expansive (expanding) networks of similarly-named nonprofits in, it seems, every state and no doubt also territories.  And, thanks to recent Presidential Executive Orders both over time, and specifically, the 21st Century by former President George W. Bush (“Bush, Jr.”), relating to the so-called “New Freedom Commission on Mental Health” with its focus on transforming the entire field.

So now, you have a good idea what I’ll be discussing below, and I hope, also why.  The Oct. 2014 section of this post, marked by these words in red

WHERE THE 2014 DIALOGUE STARTED (as taken from original post to this new one):

starts right after several five rectangular images of corporate and foundation donor logos (notably, in the Rx or Healthcare field) to the organization NAMI (National Association on Mental Illness, Inc.), a Missouri organization with its own network.  MHA has a MHA-named network, and NAMI has their networks also. One uses the word “Mental Illness” as a point of reference, the other the word “Mental Health” but they have much in common and at times, leadership in common I seem to remember from the websites.  In Part 3 of 3 I show more (visually) of the MHA affiliate network scope and agenda as self-described.

The 2014 section below that dividing line (the above title in red), you’ll notice has more to say on the history of Mental Health America and founder Clifford Beers, while still mentioning by name many of these related organizations, and quoting some of their tax returns.


To review see also Part 1, the post just published 6/30/2017 called:

Original/full post title: Do You Know Your: NGA, NCSC, NCSL, NCSEA, NCJFCJ, NCCD, NACC, and NASMHPD, not to mention ICMA? [Written Oct. 25, 2014,** split in three; this part published June 30, 2017] {obviously the italicized words=title update}, with case-sensitive short-link ending “-2FW”,

Posting Context: I mistakenly thought it had been published when first written.  After not posting anything to FamilyCourtMatters.org (then “____.wordpress.com”) most of 2015 and starting to post again on January 23, 2016,  I stayed on that year’s topics (and 2017’s), summarized key blog themes, and worked on a more complete table of contents, so I didn’t pick up on the “MIA” post until recently, when I had occasion to quote (link to) what I remembered writing up, rather than just re-explain the same material.

Having found it was still in draft, and reviewed, I found its 30,000 words, in hindsight, still relevant and worth the time to update and publish.  Especially after more time refining my understanding, scope of organizations, and some expansion of ability to present the evidence.

Part 2 Update, Spinoff Post from this one:  Considering this situation and filling in some of the missing information might distract from what’s already in this post, so I made some of the update into a spinoff post (written, but still currently in draft), and for lack of a shorter or better label, called it:

Even More Considerations on NASMHPD (and DBSA, NAMI),and MHA + Their 501©3 Affiliate Networks. And Recent Epidemic of Attorney-Generals Suing Big Pharma over the Opioid Abuse Epidemic (Case-sensitive short-link ends “-79i” previously-written contents moved there July 2, 2017) (link active now but only accurate when published)

About that situation:

Showing the current relevance, more on how MHA is set up to network through its many affiliates, and connecting this also to NAMI, and the recent trend of state attorneys-general to file major lawsuits against some of the same “Big Pharma” corporations over the costs to government (and, secondarily, human life) of dealing with the opioid abuse epidemic, took considerable show-and-tell (images, quotes, and narrative).

Meanwhile the same states and their state mental health directors (which NASMHPD here represents) surely knew about the same drug companies (Johnson & Johnson, and its subsidiary Janssen, and others) were already funding major networked nonprofits and with/through them promoting major use of other, known to be harmful and expensive medications (patented atypical antipsychotics, specifically) on populations under state control.  The whistleblower on TMAP and PennMAP came out in the early 2000s, and now a decade later, the states are surprised at the results — although in a different class of medications?

(Why not go after the FDA?)

About this post, Part 2 of 3 from the October 2014 original “Do You Know Your NGA,….?,

For updating that portion, to conserve what time is left, I’ll simply be condensing some of the quotes (reformatting to fine print) and not attempting to retrace or reconstruct my original purpose, for example, in exploring relationships between MHALA (Mental Health America of Los Angeles) and the “MHA Village

Realize that this shows affiliation with and promotion by then-U.S. President Bush’s New Freedom Commission of 2003, which comes up in the post, extensively though in a different context.

Here is some reference to the MHA Village, and background on the “New Freedom Commission,” started as an Executive Order (April, 2002), and part of a trend and intention to transform mental health care nationally, with some of its immediate history shown.

Wanna Talk Turkey to Government Entities? Uncover Their Asse(t)s-in “CAFRs.”

leave a comment »

I post a lot of material recently in an on-line forum and have been branching beyond “family court” matters because family court, historically and in context, is larger than just itself.  It’s an extension of some very critical and planned changes to the United States of America developing over, at least the 1900s and to date in the 2000s.  In a recent post — simply someone else’s work (and so credited), I related that a major bankruptcy and governmental re-organization was happening every 70 years.

Numbers, when what they are reporting is factual, don’t lie.  Math doesn’t lie — 2 plus 2 IS “4” by definition of the system.  When 2 plus 2 plus 2 plus 2 plus 2 results in a negative (a national debt in the trillions) then there are some hidden numbers in the equation.  If the equation were simple — say, presented as “2 + 2 = 3” — a child could tell something was off, and any child who knows about negative numbers could deduce that there’s a hidden in that equation:   “2 + 2 (-1) = 3.

But, add enough zeroes, unfortunately — and surround with catastrophe talk, combined with actual identifiable catastrophes on the news — and who’s to notice?  Where’s the “mental math” habit — is it genetic or what?

SO — we need to talk about, what is an “AUTHORITY” and how are AUTHORITIES” and GOVERNMENTS different, and the same.  Because both raise money and spend it.

MOREOVER — we need to understand FAR more about compound interest, profit and loss, and real estate equity (profit and loss) than we do.  At least enough to understand that what is called a ‘financial statement” is not the magical truth because it contains the word “financial” in us (which is where many people’s attention simply drops off, except for their own household budget).

NO — there are TWO sets [more accurately, “views” or “versions”] of books presented:  one for the public, one for each other– when it comes to government entities, and THEIR creations, (Municipalities etc. actually create the corporate entity called an “Authority.”) The one shown the public is wallpaper — the other is the structure.  And it’s NOT good news for the average person, i.e. worker. Talk is about employment, jobs, employment, jobs.  However, GOVERNMENT and AUTHORITIES are corporate entities (operating under a different set of laws than normal corporations) that are not earning THEIR keep by “jobs” — they are legally created (persona — “persons”).  They are not “workers” for anyone– they are managers of corporate entities whose REAL allegiance is to whoever is holding the debt — i.e., title to their ASSE(t)s if they default.

The fact that others may go down in the process seems to be secondary.  So, over in this Scranton post, there is topic after topic complaining about the disgraced Parking Authority, Sewer Authority, etc. — in various townships. But — no one has their report of their actual assets.

The other day, I spent ALMOST a full day revising a “signature block” on the forum to contain the following links — which explain this better than I do.  what’s in green-background below is an expanded version of a signature block which was limited to 255 characters.

IT’S TIME TO TAKE THIS CONVERSATION UP TO THE NEXT LEVEL.

THAT LEVEL IS NOT CORPORATE/FOUNDATION WEALTH IN THE COURTS.  It’s not the DV industry sell-out, or the “faith-based follies” from democrats and republicans alike.

. . .

No, that level is — Who IS our “Government” anyhow — and is this MY Government?  If so, then MY responsibility is to keep it honest, at least in my neck of the woods — and to make sure my neighbors (or at least two or three people who will act on it & teach others) are aware of this.

SLUSH FUNDS FROM NONPROFITS?  NO — SHOW ME YOUR “CAFR” — I’LL REVIEW IT – -AND THEN LET’S TALK.  THIS INCLUDES FOR GOVERNMENT UNITS SUCH AS, THE TRIAL COURTS, COURTHOUSE CORPORATIONS, ETC.

This is the elephant in the room.  Looking at some uniformly produced, annually produced — but simply UNreported that they exist – financial reports of CUMULATIVE government holdings — will undress it.

Silent weapons for silent wars does seem to be real (you’re in it).  “Three Cities that Rule the World” (for now!) also do.

But if the love of money is the root of all evil (and I believe it’s fair to say — it is) — then basic understanding of Economics and what government is doing in ECONOMIC (not social, psychological, religious, etc. terms — which no one is going to agree on anyhow) terms.

Sorry for the drama, but relatively speaking, this makes “Futures without Violence” (who I’m still pretty sore about; see this blog) and “AFCC” look like pipsqueaks.

I am not a socialist.  I don’t want equal results for unequal effort.  I just don’t like crooks, liars, and thieves –people who intentionally withhold what others need to know to make sane and productive decisions about their lives.  As a basically curious person who seeks to understand “how things work” — this information pulls together many strands of reason into an objectively identifiable thesis of individuals’ relationships to the collective corporate enterprise called government. It’s also necessary to understand at least the basic concept of a Corporation, legally, is a “Person.”   The “Corporation” called government has become like THE infrastructure of our lives.  It is chewing up some — but those in the middle are not equipped to stop that chewing, as they re enmeshed through employment.  If they stop and help enough (as Good Samaritans) they too may go down.

However, if we were able to stop the collective accumulation and selling off of our own assets (and life substances) — as reliable sources are now documenting (i.e. Catherine Austin Fitts’ work) — we might be able to survive with fewer hours per week at a “Just Over Broke” (and perhaps without retirement) and have a better society.

If you pay rent, you are enmeshed.  Landlords are too.  It has to do with the profit/nonprofit divide. remember, governments are corporations with police powers, and without taxes — they DO the taxing.  there’s a certain advantage there, would you say?

TOO BAD THE OCCUPY MOVEMENT DIDN’T HAVE THIS INFORMATION — IN THEIR HANDS!

Wanna Talk Turkey to Government Entities?  Uncover their Ass e(t)s!

READ Municipal Authorities In PA  (“Authorities 101,” including a history and definitions — about 50pp.  Most people are unaware of what IS an “authority.”  Example:  The Port Authority)

FIND CAFR, the OTHER$$.  

  • because the BUDGETs (being presented taxpayers) are basically LIEs

 TALK! CAFR packs a punch – — PROOF:

 “$54MM in Parks Fund?!” vs “We’re Broke, Close the Parks“! and now, The Coverup Exposed **(goes up to Attorney/General, state governor level…)

Pennsylvania Municipal Authorities Association (“PMAA”) — is a “nonprofit,  membership, trade association”

PMAA&Muncipal Authorities Act, amended summer 2012 to protect leadership and ensure a few more exemptions on funding use.

BOttOM line is, it turns out, that Government & Authorities (together) are acquiring — and currently holding — collectively, enough liquid investments to pay off the “national debt” — but they won’t, because no one is requiring them to.  Meanwhile — a corporation IS a heat-seeking (profit-seeking) missile, beholden to the public only to the extent that they are contributing, and if they got unruly, profits might disappear.   Governments are by DEFINITION, tax-exempt.  Authorities are not only tax-exempt, the are even less accessible to the public, and were created to specifically bypass certain regulations that government entities can’t bypass.

This information is currently hitting some news headlines (even in MSM press, such as the San Jose Mercury News, AP, etc.). . . As we are heading into an election year, AND reauthorization of (basically) Welfare Reform, as a “FAMILY COURT” blogger, (and as myself, a mother, etc.) — I feel it necessary to keep the focus on the largest set of crap-cutters around — which is:

1.  CAFRs (Comprehensive Audited Financial Reports) exist, and should be found and read by ALL wage-earners and taxpayers.  CAFRman.com shows how (simple explanation).

2.  They are where basic government departments AND authorities (sewer, water, housing, parking, etc. AND, pension funds, etc.) report (to each other) their collective, cumulative holdings (profits from investments, etc.) — and they are reported ANNUALLY.

3.  Forget discussing any budget (which is a business plan for government — which the public is expected to pay for 100%, without regard to profits already being earned by gov’t from their own investments and hard assets) — until these are “outed.”

4.  Read a few examples to get the picture — California Parks System, or (a while back), the “HANJ” experience.

5.  The significance of this dwarfs almost any other public topic.  It’s the difference between heading towards an even worse “slave state” than we have now for too many in the country, and sheds light on why so many systems of population control, including foreclosing on their homes, stealing their children, starting wars around the globe, and imprisoning a racially disparate population, for profit (slave labor does occur in prisons, right? see “UNICOR.”).

This is lead-in from “The Coverup Exposed” (California Parks, above):

** State Lawyers were Told of State Parks’ Hidden Funds 

By DON THOMPSON Associated Press

Posted:   08/14/2012 03:06:00 PM PDT

Updated:   08/14/2012 04:25:32 PM PDT

SACRAMENTO, Calif.A former California state parks employee says she told state attorneys her department was hiding about $20 million in a special fund several months before officials announced discovering the surplus money, according to a sworn declaration filed in court Tuesday.

The development is the latest revelation in a budget scandal that has state officials on the defensive and threatens to undermine Gov. Jerry Brown’s push for a voter-approved tax increase.

 

Voters would have to approve such tax increase.  They SHOULDN’T, though — force the rest of the Special Funds out of hiding, and put those who have been hiding up to public spectacle — especially those who threatened their own employees, or retaliated, for exposing this.

Google “Carl Herman, CAFR” and read more.  Also see “Walter Burien” and “HANJ” (some links in the green area above).  Apparently these two know each other, or at least one blogs the other.  Both have the professional background to understand economics, and Burien’s own father had worked in a state treasurer’s department (he said); he’d even been a trader.  But he didn’t know about the CAFRs.  AND they have been in place since around the 1940s…  Now — WHY don’t more people talk about it –too distracted??

My Take:

No one who has been through 20 years of a certain activity, called standing up under consistent abuse, has many myths left.  The evidence speaks clearly enough — marriage as an institution works for some, and endangers others.  Those who get out may have their children removed and go homeless.  For some, those who stay, will die, after periods of torture either get boring, or for whatever reason.  Such a choice!

That is how I ran across the CAFR material; as I recall I’d been reading about Constitutional “rights,” Eleventh Amendment Immunity, and the concept of a “straw man,” — i.e. Jurisdiction.  And the concept that when one takes any benefits from the US of A (USA, Inc.) — one is entering a contract with it, and thereby automatically forfeits even any constitutional protections.   ONE of those links led me to “realitybloger.wordpress.com” and “CAFR school.” It was just making too much sense to ignore.

SCHOOL IS ABOUT TO START.  SCHOOL DISTRICTS ARE GOVERNMENT ENTITIES.  THEY HAVE CAFR.  IF YOU HAVE A CHILD IN ONE, GET YOURS.  I HAVE SEEN SOME ON-LINE. DON’T BE DISTRACTED.

I turned on TV (PBS) at home last night.  There was (again) a special about ADHD, nice public air time for Hallowell and Rathaway promoting ADHD and telling us how great your life will be if you admit you have it and get treatment.

Dr. Hallowell

. . .how to get the most out of life with Attention Deficit Disorder.

A graduate of Harvard College and Tulane School of Medicine, Dr. Hallowell is a child and adult psychiatrist and the founder of The Hallowell Center for Cognitive and Emotional Health in Sudbury, MA and New York City. He was a member of the faculty of the Harvard Medical School from 1983 to 2004 until he retired to  devote his full professional attention to his clinical practice, lectures, and the writing of books.

Dr. Hallowell is a highly recognized speaker around the world. He has presented to thousands on topics such as ADD,strategies on handling your fast-pace life, the Childhood Roots of Adult Happinesshow to help your employees Shine and other pertinent family and health issues. He has been prominently featured in the media, including 20/20, Oprah, Dr. Oz, CNN, PBS and NPR as well as 60 Minutes, The Today Show, Dateline, Good Morning America, US News and World Report, Newsweek, the Harvard Business Review, Washington Post, New York Times and other popular publications.

From corporate audiences to parent-teacher workshops and national television shows, people who listen to Dr. Hallowell…

OK, now that we have established:   #1.  That this man is a psychiatrist, i.e., he participates in professionalized religion with as many sects as most religions, and #2.  Because this included Harvard, we should take his theories at face value, and His target clientele (notice which comes first), we can move on. . . ..

(And another reminder that George W. Bush’s 2002 “New Commission on Freedom on Mental Health” (or, the SAMHSA official “Executive Summary:  “Transforming Mental Health Care in America” has been associated with scandalous connections to Big Pharma in Texas and Pennsylvania, including attempts to silence an OIG whistleblower,  and etc.

The “to the contrary” is plentiful for example “The Drugging of Americas Public and Kids (the Plan to Drug America’s School Children) by George Stone.  I’m going with this “to the Contrary” (Sample RIGHT here).  Put this together with the “Seven-Lesson Schoolteacher” (Dumbing Us Down, 1990, John Taylor Gatto — then NYS public teacher of the year) — confirming that one of the lessons he teaches IS irrelevance — and how subject matter is built to develop “distraction” as is the conditioning to switch gears at regulated periods (buzzers:  disengage, play musical chairs, etc.).

Do NOT be distracted from the Economic Realities.  Regardless of PBS Specials normalizing the word “ADD” (and helping promote a Harvard Psychologist and his co-author like such a person is in need of further promotion!) — There is evidence that the distraction (chaos) is intentional, purposeful and for the ultimate goal of control (plus, obviously, profits).  If Ivan Illich is warning about the mental health profession — I think we might want to listen up on that basis alone.

Here’s that quote:

MEDICALIZATION: Convincing Healthy People They Are Sick
This paper outlines the deliberate marketing of harmful drugs to children as a direct result of the drug industry take over of the American mental health system. My point of departure is Ivan Illich’s broader assertion that “The medical system has become a major threat to health.” (1976) Time has proven Illich to be a prophet: medicine is now the leading cause of death in America. (Null 2005) What is wrong in American medicine is also wrong in psychiatry. Pharma marketers claim psychiatric drug treatment is a scientific miracle. However, the outcome evidence on psychiatric treatment shows otherwise: the recovery rate for treated schizophrenia has fallen from 70% in the mid-nineteenth century to 11% today, while the death rate for the “new” atypical antipsychotic drugs is double that of the older typical class. These outcomes contrast with 49-51% recovery Third World countries, like India and Nigeria, where these drugs are not used consistently. (Whitaker 2004) The suicide rate for treated schizophrenia in the UK has increased 20 fold since the introduction of antipsychotic drugs in 1954. (Healy et al 2006) Five times as many people are being defined as permanently mentally ill (disabled) today than before the introduction of drug treatment. (Whitaker 2005) Yet, in spite of these ominous facts, millions of American children are routinely being given these dangerous drugs.

How did this happen?

The drugging of American children is not accidental. It is a part of the larger problem of the premeditated medicalization of modern life discussed by Illich (1976), McKnight (1999) and others. However, the issue goes beyond the use of drugs: it is about freedom. The massive pharmaceutical corporations, which barely existed before World War II, are the most profitable legal businesses in human history. They have the money, the plan and the ruthless determination to medicalize our lives to sell us as many drugs as possible. They are a major threat to the basic human rights, as well as the health, of every person on the planet.

By “medicalization” I mean Pharma is deliberately and systematically promoting ideas about illness and disease to explain everyday life. (Summerfield 2002) By blurring the boundaries between sickness and health, Pharma convinces healthy people they are sick (Moynihan & Cassels 2005), and that “lifestyle” drugs, like Viagra, are necessary to happiness as well as health. (Abramson 2004)
Medicalization is an iatrogenic disaster of unbelievable proportions: it is inflicting harm on the lives of tens of millions of people. As our culture becomes a biomedical folktale we are being robbed of our traditional ways of managing illness and meeting death. And, in addition, the high cost of drugs threatens to bankrupt the American health care system, if not the entire American economy.

Pharma has used its economic power to create an effective lobby, which controls U.S. public health policy as well as watchdog agencies like the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

More frightening still, as I will show, the President’s New Freedom Commission on Mental Health (NFC) is a creation of pharmaceutical interests. Two of its central policy recommendations are bald-faced drug marketing schemes. The first targets 52 million American school children for mental health screening by a program known as “TeenScreen.” While the second irrevocably links the mental health treatment psychiatric drugs – – not coincidentally, the most expensive and dangerous psychiatric drugs – – using the pseudo-scientific Texas Medication Algorithmic Program or TMAP. (from my other blog, which has more links and summary outlook on this — in re: family courts.  This (google-based) blog, I have much more on the mainstreaming of psychology — as I learned it by studying Nicholas Cummings and his foundation, after I found it sponsoring an “Our Broken Family Courts’ conference, which title is hogwash.  They are fulfilling the intended purpose behind their creation — and as such, aren’t broken at all.  They ARE the “breakers” breaking other things that come through their doors, such as the human spirit (if possible) and psyche.  )

Let’s begin with a look at the money trail of legal drugs and some Pharma history.
“The US government contributes more money to the development of new drugs in the form of tax breaks and subsidies than any other government. Of the 20 largest pharmaceutical corporations, nine are based in the United States. Yet drugs are more expensive in the United States than in any other part of the world, and the global drug companies make the bulk of their profits in the United States.

Here is some history on THORAZINE which I can also find on a Pennsylvania Judicial site — although not the background.  This was surrounding “mental health courts.”  Here’s from the same article, above:

THORAZINE: The First Pill to Create Its Own Ill
David Healy (2002), the British psychiatrist and drug researcher, believes that the marketing of Thorazine in the US in 1954 created the modern drug era and ultimately gave us everything from Valium to Viagra. Smith-Kline-French (SKF, now Glaxo-Smith-Kline GSK) was a small, $50 million dollar pharmaceutical house, when it obtained the rights to market Thorazine. The drug was originally used as an anesthetic; however, it was introduced in the U.S. as an antinausea drug, which then made $75 million dollars (in 1954 dollars) as an antipsychotic in its first year on the market. Within five years it had elevated SKF to a $350 million dollar a year house. Thorazine taught the pharmaceutical industry how to market an ill for every new pill it discovers.

Revised January 20, 2004

Introduction:

My name is AlenJones.  I am a “whistleblower”who has sought the protection of the federal courts to tell the following story.

I am employed as an Investigator in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Office of Inspector General (OIG), Bureau of Special Investigations. In November of 2002, I entered a Civil Rights lawsuit against OIG officials to preserve my right to speak out on issues of vital public interest involving pharmaceutical industry influence on the treatment of mental health patients in state institutions.

As an OIG Investigator, I attempted to expose evidence of major pharmaceutical company wrongdoing. The industry was influencing state officials with trips, perks, lavish meals, transportation to and first-class accommodations in major cities. Some state employees were paid honorariums of up to $2,000 for speaking in their official capacities at drug-company sponsored events.

As I attempted to explore and surface these facts I met stiff resistance by OIG officials. I was told that pharmaceutical companies are major political contributors and that I should not continue my probe. The more I attempted to delve, the more I was oppressed by my supervisors. I was effectively threatened with loss of job, career and reputation if I continued to investigate the pharmaceutical companies.

In the words of the OIG manager who curtailed my investigation and participated in overt threats against me: “Drug companies write checks to politicians–they write checks to politiciansonbothsidesoftheaisle”.

I was removed from the drug investigation, forbidden to inquire further, and assigned to menial duties. However, I continued the investigation on my own as a private citizen.

The“ModelProgram”beingimplemented in Pennsylvania with drug industry hard-sell, misinformationandinducementshasjustbenrecommendedbyPresidentBush’sNew Freedom Commission as a model program for the entire country.

The“ModelProgram”istheTexasMedicationAlgorithmProject”(TMAP-pronounced T- Map) and it began in Texas in 1995.

TMAPisaTrojanhorseembededwiththepharmaceuticalindustry’snewestandmost expensive mental health drugs. Through TMAP, the drug industry methodically compromised the decision making of elected and appointed public officials to gain access to captive populations of mentally ill individuals in prisons and state mental health hospitals.

The pharmaceutical industry bypassed governmental safeguards and medical review by creating and marketing TMAP as a“treatmentmodel”that was instituted in various states as an administrative decision by a select few politically appointed officials

This is common throughout the courts also — private conferences (always with some corporate wealth behind them it seems, foundations, etc.) determine the best ‘NATIONAL MODEL” — including for things that by law should be handled through legislatures.

It is VERY important, therefore, to get a grip on the extent of wealth and where it is being HIDDEN.  Do NOT get distracted, and don’t be drugged because someone else thinks you are distracted.  Warning:  Reading this material may be hazardous to the couch-potato syndrome, or your sense of status quo.  It probably will also disrupt your peace and sense of a good future (unless you’re financially immune, or mentally asleep).

The last part of this blog dealt with promotion of ADD and national “DISTRACTION” as a druggable condition — rather than an induced (collectively) by our institutions situation (primary of who are schools and family courts, believe it or not.  Throw in MSM and you’ve got the general idea).

BUT — the material with the green background is where I’m going next.  I hope you’ll follow — or get there yourself.

(the next post contrasts this with previous focus — which field I am secure enough to understand, exists, is behaving as I’ve documented it, and is the symptom of more serious problems, besides being one itself.  We literally have to re-create and re-comprehend our relationship as human beings to these “PERSONA” who are, in reality legal entities called Corporations.  While many of us can easily comprehend:

1. There are corporations for profit

2. There are nonprofits (allegedly) for the public good, and services they provide — which is why they are tax-exempt, unlike me (THAT happens to be also a lie, when considered collectively.  They are tax-exempt creations which take grants and other money, redistribute it, buy up assets (real estate) in many cases — or simply take the money and run) — and they are NOT required to help you with anything.  ONly to present an appearance of.

Moreover — it’s an attractive field for crooks as well as genuine philanthropists — because the money is so dispersed, it’s much harder to trace.  They are part of the two-class system.

3.  There are foundations, which is a specialized but much more powerful (it appears) form of nonprofit, in which big corps or families (Ford, MacArthur, Rockefeller, Carnegie, Templeton, Annie E. Casey, etc.) preserve THEIR family wealth by not paying taxes on it, and from there — running government and forming even more nonprofits, etc.

BUT few of us actually view GOVERNMENT entities (and, AUTHORITIES) as Corporations. Pure and simple, almost.

This is NOT “rocket science” or “Brain surgery.”  It’s a matter of some vocabulary, and some definitions with real-time examples.  I gave you the example of the California Park system hiding $20 million (plus $34 somewhere else resulted in the $54 million link, above).   It CAn be grasped.

Got a problem with too many zeroes, i.e., trillions?  take them off (don’t lose count of how many) — the same amount per element — do the math — and put them back on (carefully).   It can be done.  What’s:

$38,000,000,000 – $7,000,000?  Remove six zeroes (each) and you have $38,000 – $7 = $37,993.  Put them back on, and it’s $37,993,000,000 — taking away $7 million from $38 BILLION is significant — but relatively speaking, a spit in the bucket.

See?  Billion to million isn’t that hard — and the figures, however, we are dealing with is TRILLIONS.  that only means three more zeroes.  You can do it!
