Hours After Trump Promised MAJOR Action On Opioid Epidemic He Takes Down Pharma CEO In MASSIVE Raid

This is Huge!

Published

on

The opioid epidemic has been sweeping the nation and has left thousands of people dead in its wake. Which is exactly why President Trump declared a national crisis over it.

One of the biggest parts of this crisis is physician prescribed opioids which leads to opioid abuse. Doctors are prescribing unnecessary opioids and patients are becoming addicted.

President Trump said the following about declaring this issue a national crisis,

We owe it to our children and to our country to do everything in our power to address this national shame and human tragedy.”

Right after the national crisis was declared, CEO John Kapoor was arrested by agents of the federal government for bribing doctors to prescribe highly addictive opioid pain medication. His formal complaint alleges he worked to collude and bribe people in power to prescribe Subsys which is a fentanyl spray for cancer patients with the highest levels of pain.

He now faces several felony charges. Some of them include RICO conspiracy charges, conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, and conspiracy to violate the Anti-Kickback law. As well, he is facing decades behind bars and millions of dollars in fines if convicted.

Acting United States Attorney William D. Weinreb said,

In the midst of a nationwide opioid epidemic that has reached crisis proportions, Mr. Kapoor and his company stand accused of bribing doctors to overprescribe a potent opioid and committing fraud on insurance companies solely for profit. We must hold the industry and its leadership accountable — just as we would the cartels or a street-level drug dealer.“

Kapoor’s arrest gives credence to the theory that doctors are not operating responsibly but instead are in the pockets of pharmaceutical companies. Which means they are endangering the lives of their patients in order to make more and more money.

The charges also allege that Kapoor along with others attempted to defraud and mislead insurance providers so as to get them to approve payment for lethal drugs that were prescribed to non-cancer patients despite the pills being for those who had cancer.

Bail has been set for Kapoor by a judge for $1 million. He was also forced to surrender his passport, under the contingency that he could not travel internationally, as well as submit to electronic monitoring. When he appeared in court he came in with basketball shorts, tennis shoes, and a sloppy t-shirt.

His attorneys have not been successful thus far in getting him lower bail. Attorney Brian T. Kelly from Boston was the lawyer for renowned mobster Whitey Bulger of Boston, Massachusetts and is now defending Kapoor.

TIME wrote,

Kapoor came to the U.S. from India to get his Ph.D. in medicinal chemistry from the University of Buffalo, where the pharmacy school is named for him and his wife to honor their longtime philanthropy.

Kapoor, whose worth Forbes estimated at $1.75 billion, also founded a company that operates seven restaurants including the Japanese eatery Roka Aker in Scottsdale. In Massachusetts, former Insys CEO Michael L. Babich and five other former executives and managers are set to go to trial in October 2018 and have pleaded not guilty. The latest indictment brings new charges against Babich and others.

Several former Insys employees and health care providers have pleaded guilty to felony charges around the country, including in Alabama and Connecticut. A Rhode Island doctor pleaded guilty Wednesday to accepting kickbacks in return for prescribing the highly addictive fentanyl spray. A spokesman for Arizona-based Insys said this week that the company is under new management and has replaced nearly all its original sales staff. It says it takes responsibility for the actions of its former employees.

“We have taken necessary and appropriate steps to prevent past mistakes from happening in the future, and are committed to conducting business according to high ethical standards and the interests of patients,” the company said in a statement Wednesday. “We also continue to work with relevant authorities to resolve issues related to the misdeeds of former employees.”

Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri said evidence from a congressional probe she launched this year suggested that Insys had “gotten away with fines that amounted to a slap on the wrist for actions that helped fuel a nationwide epidemic that’s claimed hundreds of thousands of American lives.”
Kapoor was named the drugmaker’s president and CEO in November 2015 after Babich resigned without explanation.

Federal authorities apparently have been investigating the company for some time. In late 2013, Insys said it received a subpoena from the Department of Health and Human Services asking for documents tied to the commercialization of Subsys. Nearly a year later, it received a subpoena from U.S. prosecutors in Boston for documents connected with sales and marketing practices for the drug. In addition to the criminal charges, states have been suing Insys over its marketing practices. Meanwhile, the company has been active in politics, donating $500,000 last year to an Arizona campaign to defeat a ballot measure to legalize marijuana. The company’s stock price has taken a big tumble in recent months amid the legal issues. Insys stock plunged more than 20 percent Thursday.”

Both urban and rural parts of the United States have been hit by this pandemic. Grandparents have had to become primary caregivers for their grandchildren because of the drug abuse of their children. It has drained local resources as well as federal resources. Leaving both the local and federal government at a loss over what they need to do.

Top Democrat And Hillary Associate Busted In Massive Scandal – Forking Out Over $27,000 In Taxpayer Money

Published

on

The adage of you can tell a lot about a person by the company they keep could not be more accurate, especially when dealing with the Clintons. It appears that every time there is a scandal that emerges from Washington D.C., it somehow is connected to the Clintons and their friends.  Over the last few weeks, the American people have been inundated with claims of sexual harassment from Hollywood actors to top politicians and each one is worse than the last. Now, another massive scandal has been discovered that involves a top Hillary Clinton associate and a truckload of taxpayer dollars used to keep it all quiet.

In the 40 years that the Clintons have been in the political spotlight, they have made a lot of friends along the way. However, the Clintons were not too careful when choosing the company they kept and after all these years those choices are coming back to haunt them. The majority of the Clinton families associates, friends, and co-workers have turned out to be felons, thieves, crooked politicians, and underage sex offenders.

For instance, their good friend Webster Hubbell, plead guilty to stealing at least $394,000 from his Arkansas law partners and more than a dozen clients, including the U.S. government, and eventually went to prison.

Webster Hubbell

Then there was Hassan Nemazee who served as Hillary Clinton’s national finance director during her 2008 presidential bid, gathering as many donations to help her campaign as possible. Nemazee also served as a foreign policy adviser and helped raise money for Bill Clinton’s legal defense fund and the Clinton Foundation.

Hassan Nemazee

And, just as you suspected Nemazee was caught stealing millions of dollars to purchase property in New York and was sentenced to 12 years in prison where he still sits today. Of course, the list could go on, but you get the point, right?

So, it comes as no surprise that another top Clinton associate would be caught up to no good and this one will be hard for Hillary to explain away.

Here is more from Your News Wire:

A senior Democratic congressman silenced one of his sexual assault victims by paying her $27,000 in taxpayer money, according to a new report. 

Michigan Rep. John Conyers settled a wrongful dismissal complaint by bribing a former employee with government money after she refused to “succumb to his sexual advances.”

Former staffers describe Conyers as a serial sexual abuser who would prey on young female staff, according to sworn affidavits.

Dailycaller.com reports: 

 BuzzFeed News first reported the bombshell allegations and accompanying settlement after right-wing blogger Mike Cernovich provided the website with the documents.

One former female employee filed a complaint with the Congressional Office Of Compliance in 2014, alleging that she was fired for rebuffing Conyers’ sexual advances. It was that employee who eventually received a $27,111.75 settlement in 2015, in exchange for a confidentiality agreement. The congressman did not admit to fault as part of the settlement agreement.

“In her complaint, the former employee said Conyers repeatedly asked her for sexual favors and often asked her to join him in a hotel room. On one occasion, she alleges that Conyers asked her to work out of his room for the evening, but when she arrived the congressman started talking about his sexual desires,” BuzzFeed reported. “She alleged he then told her she needed to ‘touch it,’ in reference to his penis, or find him a woman who would meet his sexual demands.”

Conyers regularly made sexual advances on female staffers and would ask them for sexual favors, according to the affidavits signed by his former staffers. “Rep. Conyers strongly postulated that the performing of personal service or favors would be looked upon favorably and lead to salary increases or promotions,” one former employee said in an affidavit.

 He also allegedly abused taxpayer funds to shuttle in women with whom he had sexual relationships.

“One of my duties while working for Rep. Conyers was to keep a list of women that I assumed he was having affairs with and call them at his request and, if necessary, have them flown in using Congressional resources,” one affidavit states. Another staffer told BuzzFeed that Conyers, who is the longest-serving congressman, used taxpayer funds to fly women in to see him.

The bombshell allegations come just days after it was revealed that the Congressional Office Of Compliance spent $17 million of taxpayer funding on harassment settlements, including for sexual harassment.

 These allegations are serious and could land Conyers in prison for using taxpayer money to silence victims that he sexually harassed. The time has come for all these nasty individuals to be rooted out of Washington D.C. and replaced with those who have morals and a sense of integrity. President Trump was not kidding when he said it was time to drain the swamp and from the looks of it, it may need a couple of more flushes.

This Clinton Mistress Just Spoke Out – DROPS NUKE SIZED DIRT ON HILLARY

Hillary is going Down!

Published

on

This is better than any soap opera ever seen. Bill Clinton’s ex-lover and former Dallas attorney Dolly Kyle wrote a tell-all book last year about her decades-long relationship with the would-be president of the United States.

In the book “Hillary the Other Woman,” Kyle explains that “Billy” is a self-described “sex addict” who’s “sick, sick need” has been enabled by Hillary who has actually “co-conspired” through her “terrorist” tactics. Kyle claims to have known Bill Clinton since high school and had a long-running affair with him from the mid-1970s until around 1991. She eventually sued Clinton for trying to block the publication of her book she said was “loosely based” on her sexual affair with him, a lawsuit which was thrown out by a judge in 1998. But her book is now out for the whole world to read.

Red Nation Weekly Reports:

Clinton Mistress Speaks Out – DROPS NUKE ON HILLARY

We all know that Bill and Hillary are a vile couple, as the many scandals in their past have shown. But more salacious information about this evil duo has recently come to light through the pages of a 2016 book, The Other Woman, written by Dolly Kyle, who dated Bill Clinton as a teen and had an affair with him that lasted for decades.

Bill’s and Dolly’s History

Bill Clinton and Dolly Kyle became friends when they were both just entering puberty, in the 1960’s. They dated when they were kids then had a serious affair, staring in 1974, that lasted until the 1990’s. During that time Dolly learned a tremendous amount of intimate details about Bill’s personal life.

Bill’s Life with Hillary

According to Dolly, Bill’s marriage to Hillary was something he dreaded, not enjoyed. As Dolly tells it, Bill was terribly unhappy in his marriage to Hillary. Dolly, who met Hillary in the 1970’s, describes Hillary as a hairy, greasy, smelly, pudgy woman with fat ankles and no fashion sense. At one point, when Dolly was giving a ride to Hillary in her car, Dolly was so overwhelmed with Hillary’s offensive odor that Dolly found it hard not to kick Hillary out of her car.

In her book Dolly also indicates that Hillary was a lesbian, and that Bill wanted to have a child with Hillary, whom Bill often called “The Warden,” in order to put an end to the many rumors that were circulating about their marriage being a sham.

Hillary’s Horrible Temper

Dolly explains in her book that Hillary had a famously vile temper. One story Dolly shared centers around Hillary erupting one night, after a lost congressional race in 1974, yelling at a Jewish campaign staffer and using an anti-Semitic slur.

Another of Dolly’s stories about Hillary’s mean spirit highlighted how, during an Arkansas Governor’s Mansion Easter egg hunt. During this particular Easter some children with developmental disabilities were taking part in the hunt. Despite the fact that the eggs had been “hidden” so that they would be easy to find, the hunt was taking too long for Hillary, who then, within earshot of the childrens’ parents, blasted out, “When are they gonna get those f-ing retards out of here?”

Bill the Sex Addict

Not surprisingly, Dolly writes in her book about Bill Clinton’s sex addiction.

According to Dolly, she and Bill were once talking about how Wilt Chamberlain, the famous basketball player, had bragged about having slept with 20,000 women. Bill apparently said, “That’s 10 times more than I’ve had.”

The End of the Affair

Bill’s and Dolly’s affair ended suddenly and harshly when, in the early 1990’s Dolly told Bill that a reporter had been questioning her about their relationship. According to Dolly, Bill said that he and Hillary would “destroy her” if she cooperated with the press. An article on the Daily Mail site quotes Dolly as saying, “When I warned him about this story, which I had no intention of cooperating with, his threat to me was, ‘If you cooperate with the media, we will destroy you’ … ‘Bam. I slammed the phone down. It rang immediately. Kept ringing, I didn’t answer it again.’”

In the book, she goes on to make claims about Hillary that are terrifying to read but not 100% surprising. She claims Bill’s marriage to Crooked Hillary was something he dreaded and not enjoyed. That Bill was terribly unhappy in his marriage to Hillary. Dolly, who herself met Hillary in the 1970’s also describes Hillary as a hairy, greasy, smelly, pudgy woman with fat ankles and no fashion sense. At one point she even describes in the book the time when she was giving Hillary a ride in her car, she claimed to be so overwhelmed by Hillary’s stench that she found it a struggle not to kick Crooked Hillary out of her car. WOW!

Multiple Democrats and especially those in the mainstream media had no issue whatsoever in publicly denouncing President Trump when the Access Hollywood “locker-room talk” tape surfaced about a month before the 2016 election in which Trump said “Bad Words,” but they are always ready and willing to give Bill Clinton and other Democrats a pass. To the point of actually rewriting history by teaching the new generation that Bill was impeached for getting oral sex in the White House from an intern and not for one count of perjury and another of obstruction of justice. To which he was fined, disbarred and lost his law license for. 

Please share if you agree the Clintons need to disappear from public life….

Trump’s Family Could Be Urgently Moving Back To NYC After What Was Just Taken From Them

This is bad

Published

on

Members of President Donald Trump’s family could be moving back to New York City for a number of reasons, in particular – what was taken from them and to avoid negative press involving the laughable Russian investigation. Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner are thought to be the first to return to the Big Apple and it’s rumored that Donald Trump has pressured them to travel home. A big part of this has to do with Chief of Staff John Kelly and what he did to Jared Kushner.

Kelly has reduced some of Kushner’s roles at the White House. This information comes from former West Wing officials, according to the Daily Mail. Kelly seems interested in ending the open door policy for Kushner. Kelly has taken numerous responsibilities away from Kushner and there are two possible scenarios here. The first scenario is that Kelly has it out for Kushner. The second is that Kushner is not doing a great job with the tasks he’s responsible for. If Kelly is simply head-hunting for a personal gripe, then that’s irresponsible White House behavior that should not be tolerated. However, if Kushner is simply doing a very poor job in the tasks he’s given, then that needs to be addressed as well. As citizens, we need our White House members acting responsibly and any personal gripe should not be tolerated. If that’s the case with Kelly, then he needs to face consequences or be removed. If Kushner can do better, then he needs to. What they do at the White House affects all of us, so we need the best work done by the best people. The problem is that we, as citizens, can’t seem to figure out what the true issue is. It will take some reporting and time to gather information and make the best decision possible.

Via Daily Mail:

When Kelly was appointed to the role in July, he sought to rein the president in, ending the Oval Office’s open door policy for Jared.

He also hacked away at Jared’s responsibilities in the administration, which at one point included restructuring the government, reforming the VA, ending the opioid epidemic, nurturing a relationship with China and brokering peace in the Middle East.

Under Kelly, Jared is now mainly focused on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Why did Kelly change things? What was his reasoning for reducing Kushner’s roles? Was Kushner underperforming? If so, then why not provide him with more tools and assistance? Sometimes roles require a team of thinking minds to accomplish big goals. If Kushner is responsible for so many things, then it’s probably hard to really focus on one of them. Lowering the number of tasks may not be a bad thing as it would provide him the ability to focus his efforts on one main project at a time. While some might see Kelly as a bad person for reducing Kushner’s roles, it may have been to alleviate some of the stress that prohibited Kushner from accomplishing all tasks. Think about it – when you’re overwhelmed with a million things to do, do they ever get done? Not really.

But remember, Kelly may have had other intentions and we’re not yet fully aware of what they may be. While Kelly could’ve alleviated stress by reducing roles, Kelly may also have done that so Kushner wouldn’t need to stay anywhere near the White House.

The Daily Mail also reports:

Even the president has expressed displeasure with his son-in-law’s political advice, according to Republicans who have spoken to Trump.

That advice reportedly includes firing FBI Director James Comey (which Jared denies) and backing losing Alabama GOP candidate Luther Strange (though it saved

Trump from initially endorsing the now-controversial Roy Moore).

Sending Jared away maybe Trump’s way of trying to downplay the Russia investigation, as it nears closer to the White House.

Last week, the Senate revealed that Jared had not turned over emails relating to Wikileaks, something his attorney denies.

But Jared has reportedly been left unnerved by the indictments of Paul Manafort and Rick Gates.

Now things get more twisted. Is President Trump unhappy with Kushner’s performance? Has Trump instructed Kelly to be the “bad guy” here so there’s no conflict with Trump and his son-in-law? Is Kushner’s political advice not aligned with what Trump wants to hear? The Russian investigation is laughable, at best.

If people are really investigating Russia because they believe Russians interfered with the election and made voters chose Trump, then they’re wasting precious time. There wasn’t a single Russian forcing anyone to vote. The Democrats simply had no candidate worth voting for. Heck, they could only muster up a few people to run for President anyway. Out of all the millions of people in America, the Democrats had barely a handful of people willing to be President of the United States. If that doesn’t tell you how weak they truly are, then what does?

What will happen next? Will there be an issue with Trump and Kelly? Trump and Kushner? Kushner and Kelly? Will anyone move back to New York?
