    Experts call it ”our other prescription drug problem.” Like opioids, it can kill and lead to addiction. “It” is benzodiazepine drugs, prescribed to help anxiety and insomnia. While the opioid epidemic has received much attention, the benzodiazepine problem has not, says Anna Lembke, MD, associate professor of psychiatry and chief of addiction medicine at the Stanford University School of Medicine. That needs to change, she says. Among those who would agree with her: Vicky Cornell, widow of Soundgarden front man Chris Cornell, who died of what medical experts said was an apparent suicide nearly a year ago. Vicky Cornell said on Good Morning America that she blames her husband’s death on the benzodiazepine prescribed to help him sleep while dealing with the pain of a shoulder injury. In a report in this week’s New England Journal of Medicine, Lembke and two colleagues spell out how bad the benzodiazepine problem is and call for increased education and awareness. Between 1996 and 2013, the number of U.S. adults filling a benzodiazepine prescription rose by 67%, from 8.1 million to 13.5 million. More than 1,100 people died in 1999 from overdosing on benzodiazepines, which include brand names like Xanax and Valium, but nearly 8,800 died in 2015. Despite the dangers, rates of prescribing both benzodiazepines and opioids together rose from 9% in 2001 to 17% in 2013. In 2016, the FDA began to require a black box warning on opioids, opioid-containing cough products and benzodiazepines to warn of the risks of using the medications at the same time. Experts say the medications help when used sparingly and for short periods of time. The risks come when the drugs are used daily and for a month or more at a time.

    Got ideas for getting getting able-bodied people back to work and off of food stamps? The U.S. Department of Agriculture wants to know. The agency is soliciting ideas from the public that promote "work and self-sufficiency among able-bodied adults participating in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and related services." The public will be able to provide input beginning Friday on the Federal Register's web site. The comment period will be open through April 9.

    President Trump signaled Thursday that he does not believe that active shooter drills at the nation’s schools are a good way to address the rash of gun violence plaguing them. “Active shooter drills is a very negative thing,” Trump said during a White House meeting focussed on a government response to mass shootings like the one that last week claimed the lives of 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. “If I’m a child, I’m 10 years old, and they say, ‘We’re going to have an active shooter drill,’ I say, ‘What’s that?’ ‘Well people may come in and shoot you.’ I think that’s a very negative thing to be talking about, to be honest with you. I don’t like it. I’d much rather have a hardened school.” Over the past two days, with much of the nation focussed on school shootings, Trump has repeatedly suggested that arming school teachers and staff with firearms would prove as a effective means of deterrence for future massacres. More at: https://www.yahoo.com/news/trump-active-shooter-drills-negative-thing-2-212037652.html Interesting considering how many of these events take place at the same time as a "drill".

    A top-rated lawyer who has beaten the Food and Drug Administration more times in court than any other attorney is calling on the Trump administration to launch a probe into possible links between commonly-prescribed psychiatric drugs and the epidemic of school shootings. “The financial interests of the psychiatric industry is to feed this drug industry,” said Jonathan Emord in a short documentary video. “And the drug industry’s financial interest is to come up with the agents to feed the psychiatric industry. “The psychiatric industry, then, is endlessly engaged in identifying new disorders,” he continued, “which can then be treated with psychiatric drugs. Now psychiatric drugs are the primary drugs that are consumed in America.” He’s right about that. In October 2011, Harvard Medical School noted the “astounding” increase in the use of antidepressants by Americans. According to a report by “the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), the rate of antidepressant use in this country among teens and adults (people ages 12 and older) increased by almost 400% between 1988–1994 and 2005–2008,” wrote Peter Wehrwein. By December 2016, as reported by the Scientific American, fully one-in-six Americans were taking a psych drug. Emord says the studies show the number is higher — one-in-five Americans. And he believes there is a substantive link between increased psychiatric drug use, especially by younger Americans, and the rash of school shootings. The attorney notes that psych drugs are known to produce dangerous side effects that include thoughts of and/or tendencies towards suicide and, importantly, violence. As such, “shouldn’t we expect aberrant behavior to be cropping up all over the nation?” Emord said.

    Nobody should be prescribed drugs, or use drugs of their own, until their body/brain is developed ( 20-25 ish). That's we'll after most people experiment, but that doctors know better and prescribe this synthetic shit to kids isn't the worse part - parents are fucking dumber every day, and the rest of us ultimately pay for their dumbasses and their zombie spawn.

    Just so we know our tax money isn’t wasted, special counsel Robert Mueller recently handed down vanity indictments against 13 nationals and three entities of the Russian persuasion for, essentially, “trolling” before, during, and after the 2016 election. But what of the far worse election meddlers? These are people who, like the Russkies, engaged in “information warfare” during campaigns. Like the Russkies, they tried to sow discord and foment unrest via “Astroturf” operations. Unlike the Russians, these people actually admitted to doing the above — and stealing votes — on hidden camera. And unlike the Russians, who cannot be extradited, these meddlers are not beyond the law. American Thinker’s Jack Cashill wrote about this on Sunday in a piece provocatively entitled “Mexican Nationals Meddled and Colluded in the 2016 Election.” To ferret out these manipulators, Cashill writes: A good place to start searching would be the audio the journalists of Project Veritas recorded in their undercover stings of the Hillary Clinton campaign. … In the course of one sting, Democratic operative Scott Foval explained to Project Veritas’s “Steve Packard” how he paid people to incite violence at Trump rallies. “What I call it is ‘conflict engagement.’ Conflict engagement in the lines at Trump rallies,” Foval told Steve. “We're starting anarchy here.” “I’m saying we have mentally ill people that we pay to do ,” Foval continued. “Make no mistake. Over the last twenty years, I've paid off a few homeless guys to do some crazy stuff.” Foval, once the national field director for left-wing group Americans United for Change, was also caught on video self-righteously trumpeting vote-fraud activities, stating, “It’s a very easy thing for Republicans to say, ‘Well, they’re bussing people in.’ Well, you know what? We’ve been bussing people in to deal with you f*****g a******s for 50 years and we’re not going to stop now” (video below).

    Mark Cuban on Wednesday took full responsibility for the decision to continue employing a writer for the Dallas Mavericks’ website for multiple years after two separate cases of domestic violence. The Mavericks owner acknowledged that while he didn’t know the full details of Earl K. Sneed’s incidents, he knew enough that he shouldn’t have made “a horrible mistake” by keeping him on staff. “I want to be clear, I’m not putting the blame on anybody else,” Cuban told ESPN’s Tim MacMahon. “It came down to my final decision that I made.” In their Sports Illustrated investigation into a Dallas “corporate culture rife with misogyny and predatory sexual behavior,” journalists Jessica Luther and L. Jon Wertheim reported that Sneed, a full-time beat writer for the Mavericks’ website since the 2010-11 season, was “involved in a domestic dispute with a girlfriend” midway through his first season on the job. They cited a police report that claimed Sneed “sat on top of her and slapped her on the face and chest,” and told her, “I’m going to kick your ass. Today is gonna be the worst day of your life,” before leaving the scene prior to police arriving. The woman reportedly suffered a fractured right wrist and bruises on her arms and chest. Sneed was arrested at the Mavericks’ facility two months later and charged with assault. He’d later plead guilty to a pair of less serious misdemeanor charges that were dismissed after he paid a $750 fine, completed supervised community service, and enrolled in an anger management program. Two years later, Sneed once again allegedly became involved in a domestic violence incident. SI reported that during a 2014 dispute between Sneed and a female Mavericks colleague he’d been dating, “Sneed turned violent, hitting the woman.” She later reported the incident to Buddy Pittman, the Mavericks’ head of human resources, whom she said told her about Sneed’s prior arrest … which made her wonder why he still had a job with the team. Sneed retained his job until Tuesday, when, in an attempt to get ahead of the coming SI story, the Mavericks released a statement saying that an employee who had “misled the organization about a prior domestic violence incident and “was not candid about the situation” had been fired. That employee was Sneed. More at: https://sports.yahoo.com/horrible-mistake-mark-cuban-knew-ex-mavs-writers-domestic-violence-incidents-212435125.html

    As fun as it is to ridicule the FBI for devoting massive resources to chasing down Hillary Clinton's oppo research while blowing off repeated, specific warnings about school shooter Nikolas Cruz, we've put a lot on the agency's plate. We're hauling in nearly 2 million manifestly unvetted Third World immigrants every year, leading to a slew of FBI "Watch Lists" with a million names apiece. In 2015, Director James Comey said that there were ISIS investigations in all 50 states -- even Idaho and Alaska! And that's just one terrorist organization. Maybe the FBI brass would still be a bunch of incompetent, PC nincompoops if we weren't dumping millions of psychotic and terrorist foreigners on the country. But even the most efficient organization would have trouble keeping track of the Nikolas Cruzes when our immigration policies require approximately one-third of the country to be constantly watching another third of the country. Thanks to our Second Amendment, the United States has fewer mass shootings per capita than many other developed countries, including Norway, France, Switzerland, Finland, Belgium and the Czech Republic. (And 98 percent of our mass shootings occur in "gun-free zones.") But imagine if we could cut our mass shootings in half?

    Just hours after President Trump angrily declared on Twitter that he never suggested that "teachers with guns" would be an appropriate deterrent to stop school shootings (before launching into a tirade about why doing precisely that would be a sensible solution), the president has proposed that the "20% or so" of teachers who agree to keep weapons should receive "a little bit of a bonus." "You can't hire enough security guards, but you could have concealed on the teachers," Trump said, according to a pool report cited by the Daily Beast. "You won't have these shootings because these people are cowards. They're not going to walk into a school if 20% of the teachers have guns. And what I would recommend doing is, the people who do carry, you give them a little bit of a bonus." Trump added that leaving schools "gun free" makes them too vulnerable to school shootings like the one that left 17 students of Marjorie Douglas Tillman high school in Parkland, Fla. dead and more than a dozen injured. Per pool, Trump said gun-free zones make it like "going in for the ice cream" for school shooters. — Tarini Parti (@tparti) February 22, 2018 Trump added that he would want teachers to go through "rigorous training" to "harden our sites."

    In the United States, there are one million children under the age of six on psychiatric drugs. This number is particularly disturbing, considering the horrifying side effects and ineffectiveness of a good number of these types of harmful drugs. One in six Americans overall regularly take some type of medication in this category. However, children are now being swept up in Big Pharma’s desire to make money, not improve health. Mental health watchdog group Citizens Commission on Human Rights is drawing attention to the concerning fact that more than a million kids younger than six in our nation are currently taking these psychiatric drugs. According to Natural News, around half of these children are four to five years old and an incredible 274,804 of them are younger than a year old. That’s right: babies are being given psychiatric drugs. The number rises for toddlers aged two to three, with 370,778 kids in this category taking psychiatric drugs overall. If this isn’t horrifying to you, congratulations on your brainwashing. Data from IMS Health shows that the drug situation only gets worse as kids get older, with 4,130,340 kids aged 6 to 12 taking some type of psychiatric drug. You might be forgiven for assuming that most of these statistics are made up by kids taking ADHD drugs given how common that approach seems to be nowadays, but it really only accounts for a small portion of it, with 1,422 of those younger than a year old and just over 181,000 of those aged four to five taking ADHD drugs. –Natural News The biggest category of psychotic drugs given to children appears to be anti-anxiety drugs. Just over 227,132 babies under one-year-old and nearly 248,000 of those aged four to five take these medications. Again, babies are being given mind-altering drugs before their first birthday. But the news just gets worse from there. Experts believe these estimates are far too low and the real numbers are actually much higher, due in part to the tendency for some doctors to hand out psychiatric medications for “off-label” uses. This risky practice entails giving out a drug to treat something that it is not indicated for, and the long-term effects of such an approach are completely unknown.
