You can expect more lawsuits against opioid companies in 2017.
It is impossible to talk about the causes of the opioid epidemic without pointing to the manufacturers and distributors that marketed and proliferated these dangerous pills. Yet over the past several years, these multibillion-dollar companies have avoided much in the way of serious accountability.
Until — maybe — now.
This year, multiple lawsuits have been launched against opioid manufacturers and distributors. With the opioid crisis now having resulted in more than 300,000 deadly opioid overdoses since 1999 (greater than the population of Cincinnati), there’s a push to hold accountable the people and companies behind the products that spawned the epidemic.

What sort of person takes a break from taxpayer-funded cancer treatment and flies 2,000 miles to cast a vote that could result in 22 million people losing their health insurance and tens of thousands of them also losing their lives, then makes a big speech about how messed up the whole process is?
Perhaps the same sort of person who relentlessly agitated for an invasion and occupation of Iraq that caused the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Iraqis and led to millions of others being displaced from their homes?
Or maybe the same sort of person who put personal and party interests ahead of the national interest when he picked the know-nothing, far-right demagogue Sarah Palin, the ur-Trump, as his running mate in 2008?
Meet John Sidney McCain III: veteran Republican senator from Arizona and former GOP presidential candidate, who endured horrific torture and abuse at the hands of the Viet Cong between 1967 and 1973, and who was tragically diagnosed with brain cancer last week — and who has also been a loathsome human being for most of his eight decades on this planet.

Too bad these thieves and traitors didn’t take the hammers to their own heads.
This is stolen property – paid for by the taxpayers and no way should these thieves get any of it back. It should be used as evidence to prosecute them all and sentenced them to life plus 50 years – in isolation so they can’t even talk to each other and no visitors ever. One meal a day and a bath once a month. Oh – and make room for Hillary to be included in all this.
Oh, It is hard to find someone uglier than Chelsea but Wasserman wins the contest, IMHO~ Jackie Juntti
FBI agents seized smashed computer hard drives from the home of Florida Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s information technology (IT) administrator, according to an individual who was interviewed by Bureau investigators in the case and a high level congressional source.
Pakistani-born Imran Awan, long-time right-hand IT aide to the former Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairwoman, has since desperately tried to get the hard drives back, the individual told The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group. Continue reading
“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.” ~ 2 Timothy 3:1 (KJV)
EDITOR’S NOTE: If you were not aware that there is a war on for your children, especially your daughters, then this article will absolutely destroy that illusion. 20 years ago, this subject matter would have been found only in x-rated sex magazines like Hustler or Penthouse. In 2017, however, it’s the lead article in a magazine marketed exclusively to teenagers. Parents, if you allow your teenagers to read this magazine, then you’re part of the problem. It’s time to take out the trash, starting right here at home.
Not content to only prey on girls, Teen Vogue tells boys, “For those of you with prostates, being on the receiving end of anal sex can be a great experience.” The article then goes on to explain why boys will enjoy anal sex. Continue reading
Haiti Official Who Exposed The Clinton Foundation Is Found Dead at the age of 50
The mainstream media’s silence over Klaus Eberwein’s death is deafening.
The circumstances surrounding Eberwein’s death are also nothing less than unpalatable. According to Miami-Dade’s medical examiner records supervisor, the official cause of death is “gunshot to the head.“ Eberwein’s death has been registered as “suicide” by the government. But not long before his death, he acknowledged that his life was in danger because he was outspoken on the criminal activities of the Clinton Foundation. Continue reading
Latest nightmarish case leaves father of 3 killed in fiery crash
It’s the latest in a long list of illegal-alien crimes committed against Americans in just the last few years: A Mexican illegal alien who was deported from the U.S. seven times was charged with motor vehicle homicide after driving drunk and crashing his van on a Nebraska interstate, killing one passenger, a 58-year-old father of three.
Nemias Garcia-Velasco, 32, told police he was intoxicated at the time of the July 5 incident, having consumed 12 beers previously to the crash. Continue reading
LaVoy Finicam was shot at nine times by State Police and the FBI, and was left to die in the Oregon snow after the government targeted him, and executed him, without remorse, or due process, because he dared to stand up for property rights and against federal tyranny. After the assassination, there was no noise from the usual folks who demand social justice, and no effective finger-pointing at the one-sided nature of the shooting by law enforcement under the direction of a Democrat Party led federal government on January 26, 2016.
The activists of the nation became afraid. They did not dare stand against the all-powerful Obama administration. They were stunned. All the while they had been convinced that we are in the midst of a political disagreement, not realizing for a moment that from the left’s point of view, what is going on is an ideological war. They use war strategies, and they use war tactics, and when it came to LaVoy Finicum, they were also willing to commit war atrocities. Continue reading
Not exactly a stop-press item for the rest of the world, but the New York Times — as part of its 100th anniversary celebration of its beloved Russian Revolution — has finally admitted what we already knew. Harvey Klehr, one of the outstanding scholars of Russian penetration of American institutions, writes: Continue reading
Leftists tolerate differences in race, gender, ethnicity, and socio-economic status but are extremely intolerant of differences of opinion
George Orwell introduced the language of doublespeak in his dystopian novel “1984” published in 1949. Doublespeak is the language of opposites. Up is down and down is up.
The word doublespeak derives from two Orwellian words “doublethink” and “newspeak.” Doublethink is when a person accepts two mutually contradictory thoughts as correct without being aware or troubled by the glaring contradiction between them. Doublethink statements like “war is peace” “freedom is slavery” “ignorance is strength” are made without discomfort. Newspeak is a method of controlling thought through language – it is the language of fake news. Doublespeak combines doublethink and newspeak in language that deliberately obscures, distorts, disguises, or reverses the meaning of words to manipulate public opinion in a mass social engineering effort.

Publisher’s NOTE: Back in June of 1995, when I first met Robby Noel – this was the story which he kept hammering home to our broadcast audience. Rhodesia – now known as Zimbabwe was the mirror, which one day would become the United States. South Africa has come before us…
There are those of you who will still not see it. “Oh no – not HERE. We are too advanced and refined for this to ever happen in America.” Wake up and smell the coffee my friends…
As to the well-being of my old friend, I fear the worst. It has been far too many months since I have been able to reach him. ~ J.B.
With every passing day the formerly booming nation of South Africa is getting ever closer to the formerly banana republic of Zimbabwe.
On Wednesday, South Africa’s ruling African National Congress proposed at its 5th annual national policy conference that in addition to potentially nationalizing the country’s central bank, that land expropriation without compensation should be allowed where it is “necessary and unavoidable,” President Jacob Zuma said. Continue reading
Has CNN found their new Sandra Fluke poster child for “free” birth control?
On Monday, CNN posted a real “tear jerker” tale about a married couple fearing they would not longer be able to get prescriptions for birth control if the GOP’s health care bill passed in the Senate because it would shut down their local Planned Parenthood clinic.
Ariana and Kevin Gonzalez told CNN that they would have to resort to going to Mexico to get the contraceptives they need, since the new bill would likely shut down their local clinic because of slashed government funding. Instead of taking an objective look at health care access, CNN’s sob story reads more like an ad for Planned Parenthood. Continue reading
Obama – This Is Your Legacy
Otto Warmbier has died, University of Cincinnati Medical Center announced. Warmbier, 22, died at 2:20 p.m. Monday, days after he was released from captivity in North Korea. He was surrounded by family members at the time of his death, hospital officials said – Rodney lee Conover
President Donald Trump nearly worked a miracle by getting this young man back, but it was too late. Thanks Obama for jack squat. This is your legacy. You had plenty of leverage to get this kid back in time to his parents but how many rounds of golf did you get in instead? You’ll be remembered as the friend to fascism, communism, socialism and death to America – Fundamentally. Continue reading
Islamic extremists who carry out acts of terror are simply applying what their faith requires of them, according to Jesuit Father Henri Boulad, an Islamic scholar of the Egyptian Greek Melkite rite.
In an interview with the National Catholic Register, Father Boulad said that “Islam is an open-ended declaration of war against non-Muslims” and those who carry out violent jihad are true Muslims who are applying exactly what their creed demands.
Those who fail to recognize the real threat posed by Islam are naïve and ignorant of history, he said, and unfortunately many in the Church fall into this category.
Citing a letter he wrote last August to Pope Francis, Father Boulad said that “on the pretext of openness, tolerance and Christian charity — the Catholic Church has fallen into the trap of the liberal left ideology which is destroying the West.” Continue reading
As liberal McCarthyism continues searching for Russian monsters under Trump administration beds, it might serve us well to remember the Obama administration scandals, for which there were no special prosecutors appointed, no grand juries convened, not even a leaked memo to the New York Times via a friendly professor at Columbia University.
A few years ago, President Obama called the scandals swirling around his administration “phony scandals”. As The Hill reported in 2013:
“With an endless parade of distractions, political posturing and phony scandals, Washington has taken its eye off the ball,” Obama said in an economic address at Knox College in Galesburg, Ill…
Obama on Wednesday did not specify which controversies were “phony,” but the administration has been attacked over National Security Agency surveillance programs leaked to the public, the IRS’s targeting of conservative groups, the Department of Justice’s seizing of media phone records, and last year’s attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya.
Phony scandals are those that do not have a smidgeon of evidence of a crime, like alleged Trump collusion with the Russians or obstruction of an investigation that was never stopped or even slowed down. Phony scandals do not produce body bags as the Obama administration produced in Benghazi and during Operation Fast and Furious — the Obama administration’s gun-running operation in which it armed Mexican drug lords and cartels with heavy weapons for which the U.S. Border Patrol had no match or protection. That gun-running operation led to the murder of U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry. Continue reading
City council in Texas furious they cannot just take man’s land who is rich enough to fight them
If you ever wondered how entitled to your land and how cocky your elected board of supervisors are in regards to your property, all you have to do is watch the short video clip of such a “civil servant” from Dallas City Council, frustrated that she cannot confiscate for pennies on the dollar via eminent domain, the property of a wealthy Texan who had the money to fight them for years.
Monty Bennett owns the East Texas Ranch LP which has been in his family since 1955 when it was purchased by his grandparents. Tarrant Regional Water District wanted to run huge pipes through his property and he did not want the family land altered by the digging and wildlife affected by the 84-inch pipes. He sued them under Civil Action No.2014C-0144. Continue reading
It’s time to wake up America!
The 2016 election happened, and to almost everyone’s surprise, Donald Trump was the winner.
There had to be a reason, right? It couldn’t be that the Democrats had run possibly the least effective candidate in modern times, who promised to continue policies that had made hash of the health insurance system, resulted in the highest real unemployment and under-employment in modern history, never once achieved a reasonably robust level of economic growth and barely avoided an official recession on several occasions, and whose primary campaign theme seemed to be that she didn’t have a penis and, while the director of the FBI made it clear she had unconscionably and probably illegally violated every principle of information security with a bootleg email server, she hadn’t actually been indicted. Continue reading
A Maine school worker is afraid to express her faith or even to wear religious jewelry, out of concern that her school would fire her. She had told one of her coworkers, who attended the same church, that she would pray for him. While he thanked her at the time, he later seemed to use the event as ammunition to retaliate against her. A letter from her employer explicitly forbade any religious phrases on school property, even in private.
“Stating, ‘I will pray for you‘, and ‘you were in my prayers‘ is not acceptable – even if that other person attends the same church as you,” the school declared in a letter last September, threatening disciplinary action for any further religious “interaction” that would be “deemed unprofessional.” Continue reading
For now, everyone knows the sonorous name and cherubic face of 8-year-old Saffie Rose Roussos.
She’s the littlest known victim of Monday night’s jihad attack in Manchester, England. Her doe-eyed image spread as rapidly across social media as the #PrayForManchester hashtags and Twitter condolences from celebrities.
But I guarantee you that beautiful Saffie Rose will evaporate from the memories of those most loudly proclaiming “Never forget” faster than a dewdrop in the desert. Continue reading
There are very few crime/mystery novels that approach this true story for compelling drama, intrigue and brinkmanship (with the nation in the balance).
Don’t believe the fake-media story that Trump made a mistake or huge gaffe by firing Comey.
Don’t believe the media narrative from the left that it was an attempt to silence Comey from some investigation into Trump.
Don’t believe the RINO narrative that Comey is a good guy just trying to do his job in terrible circumstances and the timing was bad.
Don’t believe the lie that Comey was admired and respected by career FBI investigators and agents… Continue reading
Might this explain what we are seeing and hearing from the MAIN STREET MEDIA??
Our home is in a community of 2,000 homes located on the intercoastal in North Carolina. Everything lives here. Alligators. Water moccasins. Rattle snakes. Sea hawks. Egrets. Giant blue heron. Mosquitoes… blood sucking mosquitoes. We’ve watched from our back porch as dolphins chased sail boats and motor boats up the intercostal and watched the moon rise over the ocean to cast its glow over the intercoastal.
When the community decided to drain the swamp in the center of the community, it was a big deal… Continue reading
20 years ago James Comey was an attorney on the Senate Whitewater Investigation looking into the conduct of President Bill Clinton and first lady Hillary Clinton. The investigation was to determine whether Bill Clinton used his political position as governor of Arkansas (in the 1980s) to push through an illegal loan to benefit Bill and Hillary’s business partner in Whitewater.
Several people involved in Whitewater went to jail, but no criminal prosecution was in the cards for Bill and Hillary. Remember James Comey was the Deputy Special Counsel for the Whitewater investigation. Continue reading
You’ll Love It!
The biggest farce of the year happened at the MTV Awards as Maxine Waters showed up to present a far leftist award for “fighting against the system.” Waters looked like a complete fool as she took to the stage and ignorant celebs wildly clapped for their new tool and the hate she spews against President Donald Trump. Well, you’re going to love how Maxine Waters ended up the biggest joke of the night as patriots set the record straight.
Sixty-seven percent of all Americans think the Democrats are “out of touch” with reality in America, and that makes sense if you consider their new star, 78-year-old Maxine Waters, otherwise known as “poverty pimp” by her own constituents. Continue reading
It’$ $imple – it wa$ for ObamaBuck$!
We already know that the Obama administration engaged in some verbal gymnastics to try and sell the Iranian nuclear deal to the American people in 2015. The New York Times reported last year that Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes helped push a “narrative” that Iran had adopted moderate policies so that the White House could gain support for the agreement. In reality, Iran was still in engaging in nefarious activity.
The House Oversight Committee, led by Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-UT), is digging deeper to try and discover just how the Obama White House manipulated the deal. The committee is reacting in direct response to a Politico report last month that suggested the Obama administration “hampered a much-touted federal law enforcement effort known as the National Counterproliferation Initiative at a time when it was making unprecedented headway in thwarting Iran’s illicit weapons proliferation activities.” (Continue to full article)
There’s a whole sordid history to America’s idiotic return to war again – and again – even though each and every episode, each and every war has wound up being a pile of lies.
But there’s no time to go into that here, and it’s besides the point. If the truth were simply sitting there, on a platter, it would still remain unknown.
So disorienting is the multi-pronged, two-sided propaganda regime that controls our thinking, and thus our lives, that Americans seem incapable of learning from their past mistakes – making them regressive and defenseless animals that are being easily manipulated and contained by the larger collective organism that has pushed for war as a means of metabolism and growth.
McCAIN is true to the old CAIN & ABLE story. McCAIN wants to kill off ABLE and he proves it every time he opens his garbage filled mouth. What is wrong with the voters in AZ that they keep returning this idiot to office?????? ~ Jackie Juntti
It’s not the first time, and probably won’t be the last time, Congress has floated legislation to “declare English as the official language of the United States, to establish a uniform English language rule for naturalization, and to avoid the misconstruction of the English language texts of the laws of the United States, pursuant to Congress’ powers to provide for the general welfare of the United States and to establish a uniform rule of naturalization under article I, section 8, of the Constitution.” Continue reading
Welcome to Episode 273 of the ongoing saga of, ‘The Whiners,’ starring the spoiled cry-baby’s of the Millennial generation.
Social justice wish lists have grown over the years by adding the impossible: reparations for slavery, controlling CO2 levels, eradicating offensive speech, selective homicide and regulating thought in general. Advocates of these causes have ramped-up assaults on anyone who disagrees. Flooding college campuses and spilling onto surrounding streets, their disruptions signal the disintegrating state of what we refer to as education. Continue reading
Female genital mutilation is still a very serious issue. It was made illegal in the United States in 1996 and later condemned by bodies within the United Nations. Yet since 2012 over 513,000 women have suffered from female genital mutilation in one form or another.
The practice of female genital mutilation spiked in Europe and the United Kingdom as of late. It is a practice used often within the Muslim faith. Yet nobody wants to discuss it because it’s too embarrassing to admit that politically correct culture has gone too far.
This serious crime includes removing external female genitalia parts by use of a blade, knife, razor, scissors, sharpened rocks, or even glass. Most often it is done between the time of birth and puberty. What makes it worse is that no anesthesia is used. It can very easily lead to diseases such as HIV, tetanus, hepatitis, infection, morbid bleeding and even the chances of increased infertility and stillbirths. Continue reading
