President Announces Open Season On Combat Veterans

 

 

From Activist Post

 September 01, 2012


The White House Briefing Room released another 
Executive Order, this time to “help” veterans who may be suffering from mental health issues. And in doing so, adds to the government payroll future union members and drains on the American economy.

Activist Post

For Immediate Release August 31, 2012

EXECUTIVE ORDER

IMPROVING ACCESS TO MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES FOR VETERANS, SERVICE MEMBERS, AND MILITARY FAMILIES

There have many stories on how veterans have been helped by the VA and other hospitals. It’s the kind of help no one wants.

Mr. Obama wants to see by the end of this year, a full 50% increase in Veteran Crisis Line employees.

And the funny thing about governments, they want to see a return on investment. Even if they are running at a loss.

Further, veterans can let someone know they are having problems by using insecure means of communication such as phone texts and online chats.

Sec. 2. Suicide Prevention. (a) By December 31, 2012, the Department of Veterans Affairs, in continued collaboration with the Department of Health and Human Services,shall expand the capacity of the Veterans Crisis Line by 50 percent to ensure that veterans have timely access, including by telephone, text, or online chat, to qualified, caring responders who can help address immediate crises and direct veterans to appropriate care. Further, the Department of Veterans Affairs shall ensure that any veteran identifying him or herself as being in crisis connects with a mental health professional or trained mental health worker within 24 hours. The Department of Veterans Affairs also shall expand the number of mental health professionals who are available to see veterans beyond traditional business hours.

The government will also being hiring 2,400 counselors and mental health professionals, many who would start at about $80k a year, and would pay off the new employees’ student loans to make this all happen. Student loans for such professionals would range between $150,000 to $200,000.

Sec. 4. Expanded Department of Veterans Affairs Mental Health Services Staffing. The Secretary of Veterans Affairs shall, by December 31, 2013, hire and train 800 peer to peer counselors to empower veterans to support other veterans and help meet mental health care needs. In addition, the Secretary shall continue to use all appropriate tools, including collaborative arrangements with community based providers, pay setting authorities, loan repayment and scholarships, and partnerships with health care workforce training programs to accomplish the Department of Veterans Affairs’ goal of recruiting, hiring, and placing 1,600 mental health professionals by June 30, 2013.

But the real issue at hand here is one that is generated by the VA themselves, and not through the “moral weakness” of the veteran.

Suicide is a very serious issue. There are very few people who have not been affected by a suicide by a family member, friend, or acquaintance. But many suicides by veterans are preventable.

In a 2004 study (Carr, Hoge, Gardner, & Potter, 2004) it was found by reviewing non-official records that there were 17% more military suicides and 4% more military deaths that were suspicious for suicide than what was reported in the official records.

Deaths apparently hidden to hide a serious problem.

And the media does not help the matter.

2011 study (Edwards-Stewart, Kinn, June, & Fullerton, 2011) found that the media violated established guidelines in nearly all of the 240 reviewed stories from 15 different sources. Stories of suicides by US Service Members included “more pejorative language and discussion of failed psychological treatment. Conversely, civilian articles romanticized the victim and provided more details regarding the suicide.”

2012 Study (Hyman, Ireland, Frost, & Cottrell, 2012) showed that: “Additional research needs to address the increasing rates of suicide in active duty personnel. This should include careful evaluation of suicide prevention programs and the possible increase in risk associated with SSRIs and other mental health drugs, as well as the possible impact of shorter deployments, age, mental health diagnoses, and relationship problems.” Emphasis added.

Feeding the veteran’s mental health problem is the VA themselves. It has been reported since before 2006 that antidepressants, the “Go To” drug for suicide prevention, have caused people to commit suicide.

The Food and Drug Administration noted in September 2004 that such drugs may increase suicidal thoughts or behaviors in children and teenagers.

The human brain does not stop developing until middle age.

Well within the age ranges to be affected by antidepressants provided after being discharged by the military and provided help by the VA.

The drugs on the list that have been shown to increase suicidal tendencies include:

Celexa (citalopram),  Effexor (venlafaxine),   Lexapro (escitalopram),  Luvox (fluvoxamine),   Paxil (paroxetine),   Prozac (fluoxetine),
Remeron (mirtazapine),   Serzone (nefazodone),   Wellbutrin, Zyban (bupropion),  Zoloft (sertraline).

Of these, only Lexapro, Luvox, and Serzone are not in the current VA drug formulary. Bupropion is the first line smoking cessation medication used by VA and civilian doctors as well.

Celexa has a dirty and questionable past. It was revealed in 2011 Forest Pharmaceuticals paid the principal investigator of a federally funded antidepressant drug study to fix the results in favor of Celexa.

But the most amazing part of all this is the VA insistence that antidepressants are safe.

From the study (Gibbons, Brown, Hur, Marcus, Bhaumik, & Mann, 2007):


CONCLUSIONS: These findings suggest that SSRI treatment has a protective effect in all adult age groups. They do not support the hypothesis that SSRI treatment places patients at greater risk of suicide.

The President wants to help veterans. The best way he can is to cancel this order, and demand that Veterans are provided more cognitive therapy and less medication. And leave office. That would do the most good.

Think You’re Free? Guess Again – 10 Rights You May Not Have Much Longer

 

 

From 12160.info

Posted by Hugh Mann on August 31, 2012

Richard (R.J.) Eskow – Alternet.org – Wed, 29 Aug 2012

Our struggle for liberty is a fight against concentrated wealth. 

Our most fundamental rights, to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, are under assault. But the adversary is Big Wealth, not Big Government as conservatives like to claim. Consider: 

Life? The differences in life expectancy between wealthier and lower-income Americans are increasing, not decreasing. 

Liberty?

Digital corporations are assaulting our privacy, while banks trap us in indebtedness that approaches indentured servitude.

The shrunken ranks of working Americans are being robbed of their essential liberties – including the right to use the bathroom. 

The pursuit of happiness? Social mobility in the United States is dead. Career choices are increasingly limited.

As for working hard and earning more, consider this: Between 1969 and 2008 the average US income went up by $11,684.

How much of that went to the top 10? All of it. Income for the remaining 90 percent actually went down. 

These changes didn’t just happen. Wealthy individuals and corporations made it happen – and they’re still at it.

Meanwhile, Corporate America’s wholesale theft of your individual liberties has been rebranded as a fight for … the corporation’s individual liberty. 

Corey Robin notes in the Nation that this conservative appeal to “economic freedom” has been met by Democrats who present themselves as “new Victorians,” standing for “responsibilities over rights, safety over freedom, constraint rather than counterculture.” 

Not only is this politically and emotionally unappealing, it’s demonstrably wrong.

The Merriam-Webster Dictionary’s definition of a “right” is “something to which one has a just claim: as the power or privilege to which one is justly entitled.” Definitions of “liberty” include “the power to do as one pleases,” “freedom from arbitrary or despotic control,” “the positive enjoyment of various social, political, or economic rights and privileges,” and “the power of choice.” 

Is that how you feel when you’re dealing with your bank? 

While the Right portrays popularly elected government as a faceless oppressor, large corporations and ultra-wealthy individuals – what we’re calling “Big Wealth” — are trampling on our individual rights and liberties every day.

We should be fighting for “economic freedom,” as Corey Robin notes, and explaining how Big Wealth is crushing other fundamental liberties as well. 

Here are 10 critical examples, drawn from the headlines and from our everyday lives. 

1. Our American liberties end at the workplace door. 

If you have a job, the Freedom Train stops at the workplace door.

More employees are hired on a part-time or temporary basis to deny them rights and benefits.

Many of your privacy rights are gone.

Your employer can use your company computer to read your correspondence, and your company cell phone (if you have one) to track your movements. 

Free speech?

You can be fired for expressing political views online, even when you’re not at work.

As employment lawyer Mark Trapp told Bloomberg Business Week, the“freedom to speak your mind doesn’t really exist in work spaces.” Or, in some cases, outside it. 

The longstanding right of workers to organize and form a union is also under assault.

A corporate-funded group called ALEC, the American Legislative Exchange Council, is coordinating the loss of union rights for public employees.

Governors and legislators are using budget shortfalls created by corporate misbehavior and tax cuts for the wealthy to argue that governments can no longer afford to honor union contracts. 

Your rights don’t even begin where your, er, bathroom breaks begin.

As Mary Williams Walsh reported in the New York Times, “employees at lower rungs of the economic ladder can be timed with stopwatches in the bathroom; stonewalled when they ask to go; given disciplinary points for frequent urination; even hunted down by supervisors with walkie-talkies if they tarry in the stalls.” 

2. We’re losing our “right to life” in many different ways — from birth through old age. 

It’s always striking when some of those who defend an unborn child’s “right to life” ignore the fact that the United States ranks 49th in infant mortality, according to the latest statistics.

Or in the fact that African American infant mortality is 2.5 that of Caucasians.

Or that lower-income families of all ethnicities suffer much greater infant mortality in this country than their wealthier counterparts. 

The next time you see another story about impoverished North Koreans and their seemingly mad dedication to their deluded leader and outmoded economic system, consider this:

The average life expectancy for an African American in New Orleans is roughly the same asthat of a North Korean. 

It’s shorter than that of people in Colombia, Venezuela, of Vietnam.

In our nation’s capital, the life expectancy gap between African American and white males is more than 13 years. 

For poor whites the story isn’t much better.

A 2005 study showed that life expectancy for poor white males in Appalachia and the Mississippi Valley is roughly the same as that of males in Mexico and Panama.

They can expect to live nearly four and a half years less than average white male nationwide.

Opportunities for an affordable education are disappearing — and education correlates closely with longevity. 

Then there’s Medicare. Studies showed that mortality among Americans aged 65 and older decreased by 13 percent after Medicare was created, and they spent 13 percent fewer days in the hospital.

The corporate-funded right is sponsoring a plan to replace Medicare with a voucher system that will provide less coverage for older Americans’ healthcare with each passing year.

They also want to raise its eligibility age.

The studies show that these proposals would result in increased loss of life and more hospital days for older Americans. 

3. We’ve lost autonomy over our own bodies. 

While Tea Partiers and Sarah Palin prattle about “death panels,” many injured or ailing Americans enter a Kafka-esque maze of insurance executives, case managers, billing services, and customer service numbers with interminable hold times.

Some of these processes were created as a legitimate response to physician overtreatment, itself encouraged by our privatized education and health financing systems.

But they’ve turned into massive operations for delaying, frustrating, and thwarting attempts by patients and doctors to receive permission to provide necessary services. 

Millions of Americans have to plead for needed treatment, then argue over a complex and error-prone system of copayments, deductibles, and medical bills denied for payment with incomprehensible explanations.

If they’re unable to devote hours to battling their insurer, or if they try and fail, they may then find themselves at the mercy of medical debt collectors whose own actions have been the subject of legal scrutiny and public criticism. 

Long-standing assumptions built into our medical system deny virtually all Americans the right to affordable dental care, which is available in most other developed countries, while an antiquated and Puritanical attitude toward mental illness has been exploited to deny them adequate care for these conditions. 

The right is attacking Medicare, one of our most popular government programs, and defending one of our nation’s least popular institutions, HMOs.

In fighting for Medicare Advantage’s HMO subsidies and resisting wider access to public health insurance, they’re using the language of freedom to rob Americans of the freedom to make their own medical decisions. 

There are treatments which have unproven value, have unpleasant side effects, or which studies have shown to be over-used to provide financial gain to medical providers.

People have a right to know that, and to be protected from this kind of abuse.

But the denial of covered services is an epidemic in American healthcare – and a massive assault on American freedom. 

4. We’re losing the ability to rise up from poverty, earn a decent living, or work in the career of our choice. 

The periodic economic shocks caused by our banking system allowed employers to demand wage concessions while paying ever-increasing salaries and bonuses to their senior executives.

The power of unions has been systematically eroded.

The drive to provide ever-increasing tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans has led to a decline government jobs, which has shriveled job opportunities in many lines of work. 

The key to social mobility is education, and that doorway to opportunity has been steadily closing.

A study from the National Center for Public Policy and Higher Education showed that, as the University of Virginia’s Miller Center puts it, “Since the mid-1980s the costs of higher education in America have steadily shifted from the taxpayer to the student and family.” 

The study shows that during a period when median family income rose by 147%, college tuition and fees rose 439%.

That’s a tripling of education costs, in real dollar terms. The impact has been greatest on lower-income families.

As the New York Times notes: “Among the poorest families – those with incomes in the lowest 20 percent – the net cost of a year at a public university was 55 percent of median income, up from 39 percent in 1999-2000. At community colleges, long seen as a safety net, that cost was 49 percent of the poorest families’ median income last year, up from 40 percent in 1999-2000.” 

Some career options aren’t even available anymore.

Want to be a writer or reporter?

Nearly 4,000 jobs in this area will disappear in this decade, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

A teacher? They’re cutting those jobs back to help pay for tax cuts for the wealthy.

Post Office employee? Ditto.

The death of American manufacturing means that lower-income young people can’t move into the middle class.

Working-class kids can’t even follow in their parents’ blue-collar footsteps. They’re falling behind their parents. 

Those who have jobs find it increasingly impossible to lead a decent life.

The US has a much higher percentage of low-income workers than most other developed countries.

The New America Foundation observed that the share of middle-income jobs in this country has fallen from 52 percent to 42 percent since 1980, while the share of low-income jobs rose from 30 percent t0 41 percent.

The fundamental rights we were told we had as Americans – to choose our careers, find a job, and live a decent life if we worked hard – are disappearing rapidly. 

5. We no longer have the right to personal time. 

Most developed nations recognize that the right to the “pursuit of happiness” includes the ability to enjoy leisure time – in the evenings, on weekends, and on vacation.

But each of these rights is being lost to the systematic reversal of gains that Americans first started making in the 19th century. 

The US is one of the few developed nations that doesn’t require employers to offer paid vacation time to their employees.

Employees are increasingly unable to take the vacation time they’ve been promised.

A survey published last May showed that many employees find it difficult to take vacation time.

Some said there’s nobody to cover for them because of staff cutbacks.

Others said they couldn’t afford it, the result of the same wage stagnation which has enriched their bosses.

Still more said they felt pressure from the boss not to take any time off. 

A long-term study of 12,000 men with heart disease showed that those who took vacations lived longer.

In a society where fewer and fewer people can take time off, that means more people are literally “working themselves to death.” 

And it’s not just vacations, either.

As Michael Janati noted in the Washington Times, “Americans are working approximately 11 more hours per week now than they did in the 1970’s, yet the average income for middle-income families has declined by 13% (when adjusting for inflation).”

Employers routinely use email and phone calls to intrude on workers’ off hours.

Dirty tricks: Bill Gates to target anti-vaccine advocates with smear campaign

 

 

From NaturalNews

 August 31, 2012 by: Jon Rappoport

(NaturalNews) Here is the direct quote from Bill Gates’ grant-award machine:

An anti-vaccine surveillance and alert system

Seth Kalichman of the http://www.uconn.edu/ in the USA will establish an Internet-based global monitoring and rapid alert system for finding, analysing, and counteracting communication campaigns containing misinformation regarding vaccines to support global immunization efforts.

http://www.technet21.org

This means the attack is on. Gates intends to do a surveillance operation across the Internet and locate anti-vaccine advocates.

His minions will then undertake a counter-insurgency campaign to neutralize them.

How does such an operation work?

I’ll tell you how it works:

“This writer has no medical credentials.”

“This writer is spreading dangerous information that will harm children.”

“This filmmaker tells lies about the most important medical technology the world has ever seen.”

“The evidence for vaccination is overwhelming, and this writer is operating out of the Dark Ages.”

And that’s just the nice stuff.

“This writer was once an MD, but it’s been said he gave up his practice after several patients made complaints to the medical board. Now he spends all his time attacking vaccines. He’s a criminal menace.”

“Don’t read anything by this writer. He’s obviously mentally ill. He wants you to stop vaccinating your children, so they can catch life-threatening diseases.”

And it will go downhill and get nastier from there.

This is Nixon’s dirty-tricks war all over again.

But instead of having a few million dollars in a slush fund, Gates has billions at his disposal.

He’s going to use surrogates to do his work for him, so it will be difficult, in many cases, to know where the attacks are coming from.

That’s how cowards operate.

They slink around behind the scenes and let other people do the heavy lifting.

The last thing they want is an honest and open debate about the issue itself. That would expose them.

The truth would expose them.

Gates is obviously out to create an atmosphere and set a tone for legislation that would make vaccination mandatory everywhere, with no exemptions allowed.

That’s what he’s shooting for. That’s his wet dream, the one that goes hand in glove with depopulation, his mountaintop desire.

The press, as always, will be on his side. They were on his side by giving short shrift to the explosive story out of India, where 47,000 cases of paralysis were caused by his polio vaccine.

He intends to create his very own Surveillance State, in which the targets are all Internet reporters and groups that have dug up the real facts about vaccines.

The facts the medical cartel wants to hide in their vaults: vaccine deaths, paralysis, maiming, brain damage, autism, immune dysfunction…

He wants to create a chilling effect, for those who are thinking about covering the vaccine issue honestly.

Well, here’s a newsflash. Those facts are already out there, on thousands and thousands of sites.

The horse left the barn years ago.

He’s late to the party, but he’s going to throw a lot of money at the problem.

Essentially, he’s opting for suppression of accurate journalism. Like so many before him, once he wrangled his fortune in the free market (?), he turned around and realized he didn’t want a semblance of freedom anymore.

He only wanted control.

Those of us who have been writing and speaking about vaccines for years would love to go up against Gates’ medical doctors in an open debate. Nothing would please us more.

But Bill doesn’t want that.

People like him are terrified of openness. So be it.

He can take the low road. He’ll only induce more opposition.

That’s the way his style of attack works.

People who were asleep will wake up, once they realize he’s just another puffy Marmaduke who, when he doesn’t like the game, decides to take his bat and ball and go home.

And he will go home.

His money against our freedom is a game in which many of us like the odds.

Go ahead, Bill. Deal your first greasy card from the bottom of the deck.

We’ve got eyeballs on you, too.

Debtors’ Prison Is Back — and Just as Cruel as Ever

 

From DailyFinance

By Ross Kenneth Urken

Posted 12:25PM 08/30/12

prison cell

To most of us, “debtors’ prison” sounds like an archaic institution, something straight out of a Dickens novel.

But the idea of jailing people who can’t pay what they owe is alive and well in 21st-century America.

According to a report inThe Wall Street Journal,debt collectors in Missouri, Illinois, Alabama and other states are using a legal loophole to justify jailing poor citizens who legitimately cannot pay their debts.

Here’s how clever payday lenders work the system in Missouri — where, it should be noted, jailing someone for unpaid debts is illegal under the state constitution.

First, explains St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the creditor gets a judgment in civil court that a debtor hasn’t paid a sum that he owes.

Then, the debtor is summoned to court for an “examination”: a review of their financial assets.

If the debtor fails to show up for the examination — as often happens in such cases — the creditor can ask for a “body attachment” — essentially, a warrant for the debtor’s arrest.

At that point, the police can haul the debtor in and jail them until there’s a court hearing, or until they pay the bond. No coincidence, the bond is usually set at the amount of the original debt.

As the Dispatch notes:

“Debtors are sometimes summoned to court repeatedly, increasing chances that they’ll miss a date and be arrested. Critics note that judges often set the debtor’s release bond at the amount of the debt and turn the bond money over to the creditor — essentially turning publicly financed police and court employees into private debt collectors for predatory lenders.”

Standing Up for Those Who Can’t Pay

The practice — in addition to putting an additional squeeze on poor people — turns courts and police into enforcers for private creditors, from payday lenders to health care providers.

The situation prompted Illinois legislators in July to pass a bill “to protect vulnerable consumers from being hauled to jail over unpaid debts,” in the words of state Attorney General Lisa Madigan.

The Debtors’ Rights Act of 2012 requires two “pay or appear” court notices to be sent to debtors before an arrest can be made, and also prevents creditors from calling for multiple examinations unless the debtor’s financial state has significantly changed.

Many of the victims, Madigan noted at the time, were living on funds that are legally protected from being used for outstanding debt judgments, such as Social Security, unemployment insurance or veterans’ benefits.

In one case she cited, an Illinois court brought a “pay or appear” order against a mentally disabled man living on legally protected disability benefits of $690 a month.

The man told the court of his circumstances but was still ordered to pay $100 a month or appear in court once a month for a three-year period.

“It is outrageous to think in this day and age that creditors are manipulating the courts, even threatening jail time, to extract whatever they could from people who could least afford to pay,” Madigan said. “This law corrects that gross oversight and puts a stop to throwing people in jail for being poor while still allowing fair debt collection when people have the means to pay their debts.”

Illinois notwithstanding, the modern-day debtors’ prison probably isn’t going away anytime soon given the current economic climate: More than a third of U.S. states allow borrowers who can’t or won’t pay their debts to be jailed.

Israeli court whitewashes Rachel Corrie murder (part 1 and 2)

 

Published on Aug 31, 2012 by 

An Israeli court has ruled that American activist Rachel Corrie, who was crushed by an Israeli bulldozer during a protest in 2003, was not unlawfully killed.

The Israeli judge, Oded Gershon said the military was not at fault for the death of the pro-Palestinian activist and there was no “negligence on the part of the bulldozer driver.” 

“I reject the suit,” the judge at Haifa district court said. “There is no justification” to entail compensation. 

Rachel was 23 when she was crushed to death by an Israeli military bulldozer on March 16, 2003 while attempting to intervene in the demolition of a Palestinian home in the Gaza Strip. 

However, other activists, who were at the scene on the day of the incident, said she had been clearly visible to the driver.

From 2000 to 2004, the Israeli military demolished around 1,700 homes in Rafah, leaving about 17,000 people homeless, according to the Israeli human rights organization B’Tselem.
