VA MANAGER MOCKS VETERAN SUICIDE!

3/9/2015 – A manager at the Roudebush Veteran Affairs Medical Center in Indianapolis appears to mock the mental health problems of returning combat veterans in an email to her employees.

The email obtained by The Indianapolis Star contains photographs of a toy Christmas elf posing as a patient in what appears to be the hospital’s transitional clinic for returning veterans. In one photograph, the elf pleads for Xanax. In another, he hangs himself with an electrical cord.

The woman who sent the email is Robin Paul, a licensed social worker who manages the hospital’s Seamless Transition Integrated Care Clinic. The clinic provides returning veterans with transition assistance, including mental health and readjustment services.

When initially asked about the email, Paul responded, “Oh my goodness.” She then referred a reporter to the hospital’s public affairs department, which emailed The Star a statement on her behalf.

“I would like to sincerely apologize for the email message and I take full responsibility for this poor judgment,” Paul said. “I have put my heart and soul into my work with Veterans for many years. I hold all Veterans and military personnel in the highest regard and am deeply remorseful for any hurt this may have caused.”

Julie Webb, a Roudebush spokeswoman, said administrators were made aware of the email “a couple of months ago.”

“The email is totally inappropriate and does not convey our commitment to veterans,” she said. “We apologize to our veterans and take suicide and mental health treatment seriously, striving to provide the highest quality.”

Webb said the issue was “administratively addressed.” She declined to provide specifics, citing employee confidentiality.

Paul remains employed at the hospital and continues to manage the clinic, earning an annual salary of $79,916….

Montana Senate Passes Bill to Nullify FDA Restrictions

A bill passed unanimously by the Montana Senate today would effectively nullify some Food and Drug Administration (FDA) rules that prevent treatments from being used by terminally ill patients.

Senate Bill 142 (SB142) was introduced by Sen. Cary Smith as the Montana Right to Try Act on Jan. 13. The bill was quickly moved to a hearing and executive session vote in the Senate Committee on Public Health, Welfare and Safety, where it passed 7-0. And today, the Montana Senate took the measure up, passing it unanimously, 47-0.

According to the sponsor, Sen. Smith, there was widespread support for his bill, with over 70 co-sponsors, and many of those “getting on board early.”

If passed into law, a patient suffering from a terminal disease attested to by a physician and who has considered all other approved treatment options would be able to try experimental treatments or drugs not yet approved by the FDA, effectively nullifying this narrow, but important set of federal restrictions.

SB142 also prohibits any state official, employee, or agent from blocking or attempting to block an eligible patient’s access to an investigational product. In other words, if the FDA wants to stop this from happening in Montana, they won’t be able to rely on help from the state, which is usually the case with enforcement actions.

Physicians are protected under the bill as well. SB142 prohibits any licensing board from taking action to revoke, suspend, sanction, fail to renew, or take any other action against a physician’s license solely based on such physician’s recommendation, prescription, or treatment of an eligible patient with an investigational product.

SB142 makes up part of a greater trend promoting medical freedom sweeping the nation. During this most recent November election, Arizona residents approved Prop. 303, known as the Arizona Terminal Patients’ Right to Try Referendum….

Legislatures in Colorado, Michigan, Missouri, and Louisiana, have already passed Right to Try Laws similar to the Arizona amendment, and more than 20 states are considering such measures in 2015, with the Wyoming Senate passing a similar measure unanimously last week.

Although these laws only address one small aspect of FDA regulation, they provide us with a clear model demonstrating how to nullify federal statutes that violate the Constitution….

US hospital kidnaps disabled teen patient for profit

(NaturalNews) Never forget that treating disease in America is a high-profit business. Health care is one of the few situations in which the for-profit business providing services to a customer doesn’t need the customer (the patient) to agree to the price being charged. Instead, hospitals bill the federal government for services rendered to the patient, and the government sends the hospital a hefty check for each service rendered. The patient, meanwhile, never even knows how much was billed to the government.

This is half the reason doctors and hospitals now routinely order a battery of useless blood labs and medical tests on patients. It has nothing to do with medical need and everything to do with padding the Medicare bills.

But what happens when patients say NO and decide to opt out of the whole system? That’s a threat to the profits of the hospitals, doctors and drug companies. So what they’re increasingly doing today is kidnapping patients and forcing them to undergo expensive medical treatments against their will.

Case in point: Teenager Isaiah Rider, the latest victim of for-profit medical kidnapping in the United States of America.

Isaiah was kidnapped by the hospital after his mother requested a second opinion on a medical diagnosis and treatment plan. Because Isaiah has a disability, the federal government pays extra for “treatments.” Isaiah, like many children in America today, quickly became a cash cow for the hospital which was working in conspiracy with state officials to act as the new “parents” for Isaiah.

While Isaiah was held against his will under the custody of the state, he was repeatedly raped and sodomized at the hospital, according to his own words.

While he was being raped, the hospital was raking in massive profits by exploiting the boy’s body in more ways than one.

This is all described in excruciating detail by the boy’s own mother, Michelle Rider, who spoke with Dave Hodges in this interview. You may not be able to stomach listening to it, as Michelle goes public with horrifying details of the abuse of her son under the “medical care” of hospital authorities and staff.

“Many have speculated that Isiah’s condition, which is receiving federal grants to treat, is the primary reason that Isiah was taken from his mother,” writes Dave Hodges of The Commonsense Show. [1] “He was worth too much money to the hospital. Since CPS receives federal money for children taken away from their parents, and even more compensation is granted for children with disabilities, like Isaiah, all the authorities in this case are motivated by the almighty dollar.”

A website called www.MedicalKidnap.com documents many of these cases….
