Inside The Opioid Crisis That You're Not Allowed To See

Tyler Durden's picture

Via StockBoardAsset.com,

Earlier this month, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions unveiled a plan to go after doctors and pharmacies suspected of healthcare fraud by oversubscribing opioids. America’s opioid epidemic killed 33,000 people in 2015 making it the worst drug crisis in our history. Last week, President Donald Trump declared the opioid crisis a national emergency allowing the executive branch to direct funds towards treatment facilities and supplying police officers with naloxone.

As a socio-economist on the front lines of the opioid crisis in Baltimore, Maryland, I am about to take you through an opioid experience like you’ve never seen before. We’re going to travel into the inner city of Baltimore and interview current and former addicts of opioids and heroin. Some of these individuals used heroin 15-minutes before the cameras started rolling.

These individuals have never been given the chance to tell their story until now. Baltimore’s mainstream news is not allowed to share this because it breaks the narrative that everything is awesome. It turns out that Baltimore could have the largest methadone clinic in the United States called Turning Point Clinic. Each of the interviewees are current and past patients of the clinic and speak very negatively about it. A similar description of Baltimore is heard from each of the interviewees of a hellacious city with decades of deindustrialization, drug abuse, and violent crime.

In the first video, three women who are current or past addicts of opioids tell the story of clinics, doctors, and pharmacies flooding the street of Baltimore with opioids. Gina mainly speaks about the Turning Point Clinic - how a preacher who operates the facility went from “nothing to now wearing $1000 gators, flying private jets, and driving Bentleys”. As described by one of the women, it looks like ‘zombie-land’ outside of the clinic.

In the second video, Gina speaks about her addiction to opioids and how she overcame the troubles through a strong-will. The next women to speak is Wanda, who is currently in pain management at Turning Point Clinic and speaks about how the opioid crisis is destroying America’s youth. I then ask the question about record number of homicides in Baltimore, and Wanda says opioids are a big part of that.

In the third video, ‘John Doe’ shot up on heroin 15-minutes before giving us the interview. He is an active patient at the Turning Point Clinic and describes it to be the largest methadone clinic in the United States with 6k-10k patients per day. The illegal activity and the corruption around this clinic is highlighted in the video via ‘John Doe’ statements, along with truth bombs that will not disappointment.

Conclusion

We now have an understanding that opioids are big business in the hood. You’re not allowed to know about this, because only a select few in our society are allowed to prosper from it. It’s unfortunate that drug trade is the most prevalent type of good flowing around low income areas across the United States. We wouldn’t expect nothing else after 50-years of deindustrialization and the bottom 90% of Americans left to rot.

America’s inner cities have to change or the collapse of an empire is on the horizon. Doesn’t help when 96 million Americans are out of the workforce.

opiods have been big business since britain enslaved china...big business protected by governments and banks (HSBC) to this day...no wonder we're STILL in afghanistan and had such a lucrative position in vietnam (1/3 of the golden triangle)...

and this opiate crisis in baltimore is all thanks to nancy peolsi's father (former mayor of baltimore, he was in like flynn with the greek connection...perhaps the biggest drug-pin of all time).

the evil facing this country is immense, it starts at the top; the head of the snake must be severed.

The Wire, and all it chronicled, is the legacy of the pelosi syndicate (can't remember her maiden name at present...google it, bitchez). 

oh, and, nancy, we know about the bust in your warehouse outside oakland, too.

tick-tock,

let them open their history books and a litany of Jewish names will spring from those musty pages, the names of all the Jews who helped to plunder their ancestors via the British Empire: Elias David Sassoon and Silas Aaron Hardoon, partners in E.D. Sassoon & Co, as already mentioned above, in addition to Edward Ezra, Morris Cohen—described by the South African Sunday Express in 1945 as “the guiding genius behind the War Lords of China”—Jacob Borodin (aka Grusenberg), Trebitsch Lincoln (British MP), BK Galen (aka Chesin), Skidelski, Gekker, Koslowsky, Snamensky, MD Lashewitz, WN Levitscher, A Joffe, R. Haas, JB Rajchman, Ben Kizer.

All these names will be found in an essay written by Arnold Leese, a notorious anti-Semite, so maybe he shouldn’t  be taken too seriously when he concludes his exposé, The Jewish Rotting of China,  with these shocking words:

“Every key position in the process
of the Bolshevik destruction of China has been Jewish.”

Opiates: Death on the Prescription Plan

LD: I can hardly praise this article enough or overestimate its importance. It is the first of three such articles on the subject of Big Pharma and the opiate addiction epidemic it has irresponsibly unleashed in America under the influence of organized Jewry in the form of the oligarchic Sackler family. This is Edmund Connelly at his best. We are taken right into the heart of darkness here. You owe it to yourselves and your families to acquaint yourself with the grim facts of this man-made epidemic if only for this reason: your own survival and happiness depend upon it.

LD: White American workers and the middle classes are deliberately hooked on this killer drug. The Sassoon family (Iraqi Jewish settlers in England) got hundreds of millions of Chinese people hooked on opium in the 19th century on behalf of the British Empire’s East India Company. (See here). Today, exactly the same thing is being done by the oligarchic Sackler family to millions of vulnerable Americans on behalf of Big Pharma. (LD)

Read "The Curse of Canaan" by Eustace Mullins if you haven't already.

He really does lay out where the root of all this evil comes from...

It's fascinating. Worth the read.

You can download a PDF for free.

 

Not all Jews are made alike, just like any other group. There are good and bad.

Yet, even so, the evil does lurk in a sect of the Jews that has for centuries been hell bent on destroying the world.

There's an interesting concept I read today about why the Canaanites have been so successful with their destruction and depravity.

Unlike the true Semites, who are actually US, they are never bound by country or geography, they stick together and infiltrate every country and infect it with murder, mayhem and filth. This is how you identify the Canaanites. By their works of filth and crime. The mandate by their ancestor is to always lie, commit crimes against anyone but the Canaanite tribe, and condemn anyone by branding them a racist or anti-Semite who attempt to undermine or hold you accountable for your crimes.

Eustace Mullins lays it out more eloquently. Mullins was a student of Ezra Pound at the Library of Congress.

Ezra was imprisoned by modern day Canaanites, for his attempt to tell truths and blow the whistle on WWII/Balfour Declaration.

Canaanites attempted to ban Eustace Mullins books.

Eustace Mullins never used the word, Jew, so why would the Jews care to ban his books?

Simple solution........execute the drug dealing "doctors" and do it in public by impacted citizens and parents and dis-arm the gang that supports them...the Stazi,,,,police in Amerika!

Drag them and their politicians into the street and execute them one and all.  The president of the Phillipines has it right!  Make sure and get the politicians who get their contribitions.  Kill ALL OF THE SCUM!

Including those in thre US murderous "government" loke the cia assholes.

Patriots need to start shooting these scum!

...execute...

 

Perhaps if you had actually needed pain meds for injury or surgery, you might be less judgmental.

In the absence of an objective way to measure pain, the patient must be given the benefit of the doubt.

As I see it, there are two main problems. :

Exploitation is unrecognized as the true drug crime. 

You can't make the world idiot proof.

its funny how quick they want to lame Trump, the guy has been in office for 7 months. The crisis didn't begin in January. What did the last guy do for blacks and Baltimore? Always looking for blame but they never see their faults, shame.

Baltimore has been infested with heroin for several decades. It has also, with two recent exceptions, had libtard former mayors become governors of the state, and the legislature has been under demtard control. Unions, organized crime, and Democrats (apologies for the redundancy) and free shit forever for the dindus, and MSM want to take this success nationwide.

Curiously, there are two very large very wealthy Jewish enclaves, one in the city and one to the NW in Owings Mills; old families, old money.

Moved there shortly after we got married, left asap when they started exporting fourth generation section 8 welfare queens out to our quaint little suburb.

Whats a workforce?

Moe Hamhead's picture

What are they supposed to do?  Stand around on the front porch singing Gumbaya?  It's a sad, desperate situation.  There are no jobs in Baltimore, or Detroit, or Pittsburgh, or Chicago, or --you name it.  It's sad.  I can't imagine a solution to the problem.  Drugs seem to be their preferred antidote.  Take the drugs away and who knows what's next.  But I don't think it would be pretty.

There are jobs.  You must be under 40, bilingual, preferably hold an advanced degree with 20 years experience.  Pay is $10 per hour.

that's slave-talk.

you make your own job.

natashav's picture

Exactly. I don't have a job. Have incredible credentials. Amazing in fact.

And if I got a job, this is what I would be offered.

I looked for quite a long time and gave up.

Many of my friends, who were CEOs of companies would die to find a position somewhere.

Even a step down from CEO, it's impossible.

Trump claims jobs are up. I call BS.

I would be the number is much higher than 96 million unemployed.

Many of us just stopped looking.

 

My question is, with all of the liabilities and debt the government has run up,

who's going to continue to pay taxes to pay off that debt when no one has a job anymore?

They gutted our country. Sent our jobs overseas.

Who's going to pay their healthcare and pensions?

Who's going to pay the welfare for all the refugees?

Who's going to buy their drugs, when no one has the money to do so or all the addicts have died?

One thing I can say about the Somali's they are importing,

those guys are savages, and if instructed properly,

won't have a problem hunting down these three letter agency criminals, bankers and politicians

and putting them 6 feet underground.

Actually yes, and I'm not being facetious, except it'd be better for everyone to come together and hold hands in the city center.

I am too lazy to get into a full long winded explanation but it touches on the true cause of addiction, the addicted mouse who gave up his drug laced water when put in a better environment with others, the Heart Math Institute and their research on the powerful effects of coming together and singing, and the negative impact a poor mental state can have on genetic expression.

If we could start coming together with our communities and strangers and taking a moment to unite in song before we get to work fixing these huge problems, it would be powerful indeed.

There are jobs but they get paid more to not work than to work; most people would take the not work route given that scenario.  At least in Chicago if you aren't working you can get paid for a percentage for the organs that are harvested from the people that you murder by Uncle Rahm!!

Interesting that the writer makes no mention of the role Big Pharma plays in the problem ... it's all "doctors and pharmacies."  Doctors and pharmacies play a role to be sure, but there's a special place in hell for the executives of these pharmaceutical companies.  They're doing the same thing that the tobacco companies were excoriated for, and yet the pharmaceutical companies get a free pass.

Hey Jeff,

Go after the Pure Evil War Criminal Treasonous Seditious Psychopaths at the CIA. They're the ones importing the Herion.

To state the obvious; the CIA has deeply humiliated the American people in their attempt to tie the American people to be responsible for the CIA's crimes against humanity across the world.

The CIA appears to be the world's greatest threat to peace and prosperity. It is the penultimate terrorist organization, being the direct or indirect creator of all other terrorist organizations. It also appears to be the world's penultimate illegal drug smuggler and pusher making all other illegal drug trading possible and instigating the horrors of addiction and suffering around the world.

If I believed that the CIA was working in any way on behalf of the US government and the American people then it would be sad and shameful indeed. However, it is my belief that the CIA instead was captured long ago, as was the secret military operations and now works for a hidden power that wants to dominate or failing that, destroy humanity.

It's those Select Highly Compartmentalized Criminal Pure Evil Rogue Elements at the Deep State Top that have had control since the JFK Execution that have entrenched themselves for decades & refuse to relinquish Control.

The Agency is Cancer. There should be no question about the CIA's future in the US.
Dissolved & dishonored. Its members locked away or punished for Treason. Their reputation is so bad and has been for so long, that the fact that you joined them should be enough to justify arrest and Execution for Treason, Crimes Against Humanity & Crimes Against The American People.

And yet, there is something positive in this. By experiencing and knowing evil, we can choose the path of light or choose to ignore both dark amd light. It is a choice we all must make if we intend to evolve from being animals ruled by this world and its illusions.

This is simply not a solvable problem. Addicts quit because they want to. Period. They don't quit for any other reason. Rehab, detox, blah blah blah. If they don't want to quit, those things are just temporary band aids. Sad but true.

They quit when they cannot pay the pusherman.

They quit when they decide that they are hurting themselves. They do NOT care about other people.

I'm an alcoholic, sober for 4+ years. I stopped drinking when I felt I had a reason to live again - in my case, a new and wonderful girlfriend. Before, I was mired in guilt and remorse for all the stupid things I'd done, and opportunities I wasted, and grabbing a bottle was just easier than admitting just what a fool I'd been. I'm lucky it was only booze - I don't think I would have made it if I'd been into opiates. 

I couldn't quit until I finally admitted I was addicted, and couldn't manage it. I couldn't do that until I had something to replace booze - in my case, my girlfriend. But what are we offering to the former working class of America, black or white? The liberals sneer at their religion (while bending over backward so as not to offend Islam), their jobs were bartered away in trade agreements that benefit the coastal economies at the expense of middle America, and their political views are seen as deplorable, uneducated, and, as we've seen at Google, unspeakable.

They literally have nothing to live for - no God, no job, no hope. Despised by the elites, blamed for the horrible state of affairs that has given more people more stuff than any system ever, and subject to re-evaluation and revisionism at all times, they see their past denigrated, their present derided, and their future denied.  Opium at least gives them a goal.

People like CEO Ken Frazier should be arrested, indicted for widespread fraud and corruption, and spend the rest of their lives behind bars.

Merck is also heavily involved in profiting off the opioid addiction epidemic that’s now ravaging America while generating record profits for companies like Merck. If anyone is committing mass violence against America, it’s people like Merck CEO Ken Frazier, a person who belongs behind bars for his continued sacrificing of human beings for corporate profits. The violence in Charlottesville is nothing at all compared to the violence carried out by Merck’s vaccine division alone, not to mention its other drugs.

Merck is the same company whose own virologists filed a False Claims Act with the federal government, explaining they were ordered by Merck management to fake vaccine trial results in order to “trick” the FDA. Merck’s entire mumps vaccine operation is a complete and total fraud.

Merck has also been caught committing widespread scientific fraud by disguising its in-house propagandists as “independent science” authors for medical science papers that were published in mainstream science journals. Merck is to medicine, in other words, what Monsanto is to the food industry: They’re both steeped in evil, scientific fraud and deep deception.

Before coming CEO Frazier was made Merck’s corporate counsel – a company’s chief lawyer – in 1999. His biggest task was defending Merck from an onslaught of lawsuits relating to its handling of the painkiller Vioxx, which was withdrawn from the market in 2004 after large studies showed it caused heart attacks.
