What is it we never see in the press about the tragic mass shootings that are happening now on a routine basis? What pharmaceutical drugs these shooters are on, their health history and who the doctors are who are responsible for the physical and mental health of of these mass murders, that’s what!
Twenty-seven drug regulatory agency warnings cite psychiatric drug side effects of mania, psychosis, violence and homicidal ideation; 1,531 cases of psychiatric drug induced homicide/homicidal ideation have been reported to the US FDA; 65 high profile cases of mass shootings/murder have been committed by individuals under the influence of these drugs, yet there has never been a federal investigation into the link between seemingly senseless acts of violence and the use of mind-altering psychotropic drugs.
Yet yesterday in the Associated Press and several Washington newspapers we read a hysterical wave of protest after the National Rifle Association’s incoming president linked school shootings and other violence to using medications such as Ritalin:
George DuPaul, a psychologist at Lehigh University in Pennsylvania said, “There’s really no evidence whatsoever that links treatment for ADHD with Ritalin and drugs like that with violence, let alone gun violence.” If anything, DuPaul said, children tend to be less aggressive. Right here in this statement we see how mass killings have become sanctioned by the press and mainstream institutions.
Dr. Leonard Sax, who is both a physician and a psychologist, says in the New York Times, “The next time you hear a doctor say, with regard to prescribing stimulant medications, “let’s try it and see whether it helps,” I suggest that you run – do not walk – to the nearest exit.”
Chemically similar to cocaine, the short-term side effects of Ritalin include “nervousness, agitation, anxiety, insomnia, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, palpitations, headache, increased heart rate, increased blood pressure, and psychosis.” Criminal Justice Research states plainly, “Several infamous school shooters had been taking prescription drugs at the time of their attacks. T. J. Solomon was taking Ritalin when he went on a shooting spree at his Georgia high school, and some evidence suggests Kip Kinkel had taken Ritalin as well.” Several does not cover it, more like a horde!
Dr. Kelly Brogan writes, “We know that all drugs have side effects. That’s just part of the deal, right? But is it really possible that an antidepressant can cause a sane person to act like a cold-blooded criminal?” The answer is yes and worse, they cause people to become mass murders going on killing sprees, that are destroying the fabric of society in America, and the press do not have the integrity to report on it.
As reported in The New York Times, three million children in this country take drugs for ADHD. In the past 30 years, there has been a 2,000 percent increase in the consumption of drugs for attention-deficit disorder. Among many children, the abuse of Ritalin has become commonplace.
The result of the damage done by Ritalin in the brain is similar to frontal lobe syndrome. Over time, frontal lobe syndrome can render a person increasingly incapable of inhibiting impulsive behaviors. In addition, such damage contributes to the onset of clinical depression.
And no, side effects are not part of the deal, they are the main deal. Side effects, we are learning, are the main effects of these horrific drugs that pharmaceutical companies, the FDA, medical organizations and doctors are jumping for joy to ram down our children’s’ throats while they get rich doing it.
The mass murders we are seeing weekly in American schools do not start with the guns that are being used or the witless people who are pulling the triggers but with the owners and editors of major news papers, everyone who works at the FDA, pharmaceutical executives and politicians everywhere who do not know an important issue when they see one.
There have been 65 high profile acts of senseless violence, including mass school shootings, mass stabbings, and even the intentional crashing of a commercial airplane, committed by individuals taking or withdrawing from psychiatric drugs since October 9, 2017, according to CCHR International. Since then the list has grown tragically with the number of young people being mowed down accelerating and yet the pharmaceutical paradigm of death by drugs lives on.
James Holmes, on trial for the mass shooting of 12 people in Colorado RJ SANGOSTI
The New American Magazine published, “From Prozac to Parkland: Are Psychiatric Drugs Causing Mass Shootings?” listing many shootings leading off with:
The Parkland, Florida, shooter who murdered 17 on Valentine’s Day, was on medication for emotional issues, his aunt related. As information about a “perpetrator emerges, a relative confides to a newspaper that the ‘troubled youth’ who committed the mass murder was on psychiatric medications — you know, those powerful, little understood, mind-altering drugs with fearsome side effects including ‘suicidal ideation’ and even ‘homicidal ideation.’”
Connecticut, killer Adam Lanza, who killed 26 at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2013. He also was on medication, according to family friend Louise Tambascio. Columbine mass-killer Eric Harris was taking Luvox — like Prozac, Paxil, Zoloft, Effexor and many others, a modern and widely prescribed type of antidepressant drug called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, or SSRIs.”
“The drug Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock was prescribed Valium, which is a benzodiazepine documented by several studies to cause violence, aggression, homicidal ideation and suicide risk or attempts. New court records obtained by CNN indicate Paddock had been prescribed the drug as far back as 2013.”
Dr. Hyla Cass writes, “Why a shooter killed twenty children and six adults in a Newtown elementary school. 60 Minutes reported that Adam Lanza was taking prescribed medication, but the mainstream media failed to follow up on this. The Virginia Tech shooter murdered thirty-two. Cho was prescribed the antidepressant drug Prozac prior to his rampage. Jeffrey Weiss went on a shooting rampage on March 21, 2005, at Red Lake High School that left ten dead, including him. Earlier that day, Weiss had killed his grandfather and his grandfather’s girlfriend. He was on Prozac and the dosage had recently been increased.”
Dan Roberts wrote back in 2013, “Nearly every mass shooting incident in the last twenty years, and multiple other instances of suicide and isolated shootings all share one thing in common, and its not the weapons used. The overwhelming evidence points to the signal largest common factor in all of these incidents is the fact that all of the perpetrators were either actively taking powerful psychotropic drugs or had been at some point in the immediate past before they committed their crimes.”
We Are Responsible
“How did we get here,” Time Magazine asks? “How did the world’s greatest democracy and economy become a land of crumbling roads, galloping income inequality, bitter polarization and dysfunctional government?” How did we become so stupid that we let pharmaceutical companies, psychiatrists, doctors and governmental medical organizations bring us to the point that they are killing Americans in mass with opioid drugs and psychotropic drugs that are leading to one mass murder after another in schools?
“In 2015, 33,091 people died from opioid overdoses in the U.S. My sister was one of them. She passed away on July 31, 2015 at the age of 44. I often think about her last day and what her final moments were like. I also think about the person who gave her the drugs that ended her life. Below is what I might say to that person if we ever met.”
We are allowing our kids to be murdered. We are permitting criminal psychopaths to rule over our media, governments and medical institutions and we do not have the intellectual or emotional courage to do anything about it. Its not that we don’t know, we don’t want to know.
Doctors and the FDA are Guilty as Charged
We must start asking who was the killers doctor and what drugs was he taking? Dr. Kelly Brogan wrote, “What about serious risks – including impulsive suicide and homicide – surely we are informing patients of that possibility, right? Wrong. In fact, the FDA and the pharmaceutical industry have gone to great lengths to conceal multiple signals of harm, so we certainly can’t expect your average prescriber to have done the investigative work required to get at the truth. In fact, from 1999-2013, psychiatric medication prescriptions have increased by a whopping 117% concurrent with a 240% increase in death rates from these medications.”
Despite international drug regulators warning that these drugs can cause mania, psychosis, hallucinations, suicide and homicidal ideation, Congress has yet to investigate the role of psychiatric drugs in most school shootings. This is because politicians have sold their souls to the enormous influence of the pharmaceutical industry.
The New American concludes, “Famed psychiatrist Sigmund Freud once believed that cocaine, legal during his younger days, was the best cure for depression there’d ever been. “Bayer Heroin” was once advertised as a remedy for all sorts of ailments. Today, with one out of six Americans on some psychiatric medication, we ought to perhaps bear in mind that just because a drug is on the right side of the law doesn’t mean it won’t bring you to the wrong side of sanity’s line.”
We can watch the terror in real time almost each week in American schools and we can watch this video and see that there is a whole class of people and organizations that should be hung from the nearest tree.
Many of us are depressed because we should be depressed or terribly angry at where civilization and our leaders are bringing us. Our miserable politicians would rather us hate Russians, and risk nuclear war with them, because they do not want us burning down their houses in realization for what they are doing to Americans and their children.
“Get ready for two weeks of media coverage of politicians acting like they give a s*** when in reality they just want to boost their approval ratings before midterms,” Parkland student David Hogg tweeted.
No one should forget that the British Medical Journal warned everyone: “The FDA admitted in 2007 that SSRIs can cause madness at all ages and that the drugs are very dangerous; otherwise daily monitoring wouldn’t be needed: Families and caregivers of patients should be advised to look for the emergence of such symptoms on a day-to-day basis, since changes may be abrupt.”
At least one student at the Texas high school that became the scene of a mass shooting on Friday has said she wasn’t surprised. She’s been expecting this. “It’s been happening everywhere,” 17-year-old student Paige Curry said in an interview hours after the shooting. “I’ve always kind of felt it like eventually it was going to happen here too.”
And it is going to continue to happen until we have had it and cannot take it anymore and march on Washington, the Pentagon, as well as the offices of the FDA, CDC, AMA and doctors and psychiatrist offices threatening to burn down all their houses. The entire framework of the mainstream is caught up in what can only be considered pharmaceutical terrorism.
Magnesium is the Perfect Anti-Depressant Anti-Violence Medication
Magnesium is essential in regulating central nervous system excitability thus magnesium-deficiency may cause aggressive behavior, depression, or suicide. Magnesium calms the brain and people do not need to become severely deficient in magnesium for the brain to become hyperactive. One study confirmed earlier reports that a marginal magnesium intake overexcites the brain’s neurons and results in less coherence–creating cacophony rather than symphony—according to electroencephalogram (EEG) measurements.
There is an epidemic of magnesium deficiency in America and in populations around the world. This is, in part, what is driving such surges in violence? The two most basic requirements for the normal operation of our brain are a sufficient energy supply and an optimal presence of biochemicals involved in transmitting messages. Magnesium is crucial in both the production of energy and neurotransmitters, not to mention the integrity of the blood brain barrier. It is bedrock science that connects magnesium to neurological disorders.
Medical science is clear though that magnesium deficiency or imbalance plays a role in the symptoms of mood disorders. Observational and experimental studies have shown an association between magnesium and aggression,,,,anxiety,, ADHD,,, bipolar disorder, depression,,, and schizophrenia ,,,. Patients who had made suicide attempts (by using either violent or nonviolent means) had significantly lower mean CSF magnesium level irrespective of the diagnosis.
Mg deficiency increases susceptibility to
the physiologic damage produced by stress.
The adrenergic effects of psychological stress induce
a shift of Mg from the intracellular to the extracellular space,
increasing urinary excretion and eventually depleting body stores.
Dr. Leo Galland
It took four days before the first elite controlled media published one of the main reasons all these people in Vegas had to die. The killer was on massive dosages of Valium (diazepam). He was prescribed 50 10mg diazepam pills in June. In a shameful article, we read that most doctors agree it is near-impossible for a pill to be the root cause of Paddock’s murder spree killing 58 and wounding more than 500.
What does it take to get the government to ban all of these dangerous medications and to substitute magnesium, bicarbonates and even iodine in their place?
As the world joined Americans in mourning the school massacre in Connecticut, many urged U.S. politicians to honor the 28 victims, especially the children, by pushing for stronger gun control laws. If they were honest they would be urging the US government to finally put a stop to the criminal and vicious attack on children by Big Pharma.
 Bernard Rimland. While no patient has been cured with the vitamin B6 and magnesium treatment, there have been many instances where remarkable improvement has been achieved. In one such case an 18-year-old autistic patient was about to be evicted from the third mental hospital in his city. Even massive amounts of drugs had no effect on him, and he was considered too violent and assaultative to be kept in the hospital. The psychiatrist tried the B6/magnesium approach as a last resort. The young man calmed down very quickly. The psychiatrist reported at a meeting that she had recently visited the family and had found the young man to now be a pleasant and easy-going young autistic person who sang and played his guitar for her. http://www.autism.org/vitb6.html

 This is the first experimental study in which magnesium intakes were tightly controlled and EEG measurements were analyzed by computer so they could be statistically compared.
