FDA Failed Again — But No One’s Talking

March 7, 2009

Remember that scene in the movie Slum Dog Millionaire when the empty water bottles were refilled with tap water then sealed with super glue? That was just a movie.

Here in the United States a more sinister act has been perpetrated by a North Carolina pre-filled syringe factory.

On Feb. 23, 2009, two employees of a pre-filled syringe manufacture, AM2PAT, Inc,  plead guilty and were sentenced to 54 months imprisonment for misbranding syringes for distribution. The employees are Ravindra Kumar Sharma, age 54, of Richmond, Virginia and Aniruddha Petel, age 43, of Carpentersville, Illinois.

Criminal complaints included mail fraud, submitting false statements to a US government entity, and knowingly sending misbranded medical devices into interstate commerce with the intent to defraud.

Syringes were misbranded as “sterile,” when, in fact, the requisite sterility testing on these products had not been completed prior to their shipment into interstate commerce.

Paperwork had been falsified or fabricated to indicate compliance.

The company, AM2PAT, Inc. is responsible for 200 to 300 medical patients throughout the country who developed bacterial infections after having been injected by the syringes. Serious illness such as spinal meningitis, permanent brain damage and even death have resulted in some cases.

AM2PAT, which also sold products under the name Sierra Pre-Filled, produced syringes of heparin and saline, which are often used on already vulnerable patients during cancer treatments, kidney dialysis and other procedures. Read more here

A Federal Grand Jury returned a ten-count Indictment against both AM2PAT, Inc., and its former President, Dushyant Pate on February 19, 2009. Charges include making materially false statements to the Food and Drug Administration in the company’s 2003 Notification to the Food and Drug Administration of its intent to market syringes pre-filled with heparin.

A statement made on Feb. 25 indicated authorities searching for the Chicago-based company’s CEO Dushyant Patel, who had been indicted the week earlier. They believe he fled to his native India.

A Fable Unfolded: ACORN and a Foreclosure “Victim”

February 23, 2009

By now you’ve heard the announcement from the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) regarding the  launch of the Home Defenders Campaign, which seeks to use civil disobedience techniques, complemented by mass communication (texts, emails, social networking, etc.), to cull wide grassroots support for victims of foreclosure in at least 22 cities across the nation.

One particular case has caught my attention. It’s the case of the Donna Hanks foreclosure story. The more I read about her situation, the more the story “changed.” Read on because the “end” of this post might surprise you.

Apparently Hanks, according to one news article, is a victim. She says the bank refused to modify her loan and foreclosed, kicking her out of the house in September.

To her pleasure, ACORN stepped in to protect her, calling Hanks a victim of predatory lending. Breaking the foreclosure padlock off the front door they entered the property. Hanks reclaimed her former home and changed the locks.

An ACORN representative stated,  “We are actually trespassing, and so this is a way of civil disobedience to try to stay in the house. Legally it’s wrong, but homesteading is the only means that she has left to stay in her house. And we feel as though this is the right thing to do at this particular time to save this family.” Read more here

So far, the story seemed to be consistent from one article to another. Then the story took a turn today.

Initially, Hanks had commented that there was new paint on the walls and there was evidence that someone had been remodeling. Read more here

The story would change by a high level ACORN representative who stated in the six short months since the home was seized, it had been extensively damaged, essentially partially gutted. The toilets were missing, and the upstairs ceiling was badly damaged. Read more here

Then today I read rumblings on the internet that she wasn’t exactly a “victim.”

Donna Hanks initially purchased her home (… South Ellwood, Baltimore, MD 21224) on 7/06/2001 for $87,000. She re-fi’d in 2005 for $270,000, went into bankruptcy in 2006, and this was the 2nd foreclosure. The $300 a month was actually the $340 a month she agreed to re-pay as she was over $10,000 behind in her payments. The house was sold in July 08 and they couldn’t get her out until September 08 after not paying anything for over a year. Read more here

Checking the property and court records from the links provided in the above article did indicate a person by that name lived at that address and the foreclosure dates check out as well. Should you be a nonbeliever and feel compelled, the above article gives links to websites that show recorded documents to verify the allegations.

My question is: Where did that $270,000 go that she pocketed before she became a “victim”?

This month ACORN demonstrators appeared at a Washington DC office that holds foreclosure auctions. Chanting “no sales here” they shut operations down for an hour.

Earlier in February, two bank executives from Rye, NY, and Greenwich, Connecticut respectively, resisting to help modify loans were visited at their residences by more than 300 people who showed up in an attempt to make their statement with slogans. Pitty their neighbors.

Demanding a moratorium on foreclosures, protesters have appeared in Boston, Detroit, Memphis and Cleveland to confront bankers. Read more here

Legislation to Legalize Marijuana

January 1, 2009

A new bill was introduced to legalize marijuana on April 17, 2008 by Barney Frank of Massachusetts and Ron Paul of Texas. 

To date, this bill has not been passed into law

H. R. 5843 is titled “To eliminate most Federal penalties for possession of marijuana for personal use, and for other purposes.”

The short title is: ‘Act to Remove Federal Penalties for the Personal Use of Marijuana by Responsible Adults’

The bill, which was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary, and in addition to the Committee on Energy and Commerce, for a period to be subsequently determined by the Speaker, in each case for consideration of such provisions as fall within the jurisdiction of the committee concerned

The bill is designed for elimination of certain marijuana-related penalties.

Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no penalty may be imposed under an Act of Congress for the possession of marijuana for personal use, or for the not-for-profit transfer between adults of marijuana for personal use. For the purposes of this section, possession of 100 grams or less of marijuana shall be presumed to be for personal use, as shall the not-for-profit transfer of one ounce or less of marijuana , except that the civil penalty provided in section 405 of the Controlled Substances Act (21 U.S.C. 844a) may be imposed for the public use of marijuana if the amount of the penalty does not exceed $100.

Barry Soetoro / Barack Obama — Career History (part 1)

October 24, 2008

A while back I was going through some old internet archives browsing through BO’s past. Because there is so much information I’ve chosen to post smaller blocks of information as opposed to one large article. Here’s the first in the series of archives I’ve uncovered.

Below I’ve posted excerpts from the websites as it relates to Obama.

Having no clue what the letters “NP” and “DSA” meant they kept popping up in the 1990’s archives. The words “grassroots,” “progressive” and other key terms that I’ve become familiar with in this political environment are used through the archived articles I stumbled onto.

Since first reading the articles I’ve found out what NP and DSA mean.

NP stands for “New Party.” DSA stands for Democratic Socialists of America. They both seem to be connected although DSA currently denies it. As a footnote there is a youth section of DSA called Young Democratic Socialists. Not only did I not realize there was a socialist group to indoctrinate children, neither did I know how active it is.

I also stumbled across a list of DSA members running our country only to be shocked to see some familiar names that are currently in high profile government positions.

According to former Naval Intelligence Officer Marion Valentine as reported in a Canada Free Press article dated Oct. 16, 2008: “I found Frank Marshall Davis, who had fled from Chicago to Hawaii when Obama was 12 years old, was Obama’s mentor from then till Davis died in 1987.

“Davis put Obama in touch with the Socialist Party in Chicago (called the New Party) which Ayers is also a member of, (emphasis added) therefore the first “Planned” contact with Ayers.  The New Party helped launch and finance Obama’s political career.  Obama…selected, trained, groomed and scripted to become the “puppet” leader of the United Socialist States of America.”

In 1950 Frank Marshall Davis  was investigated by the House Un-American Activities Committee for his links with the Communist Party USA in the United States

From The Columbus Free PressNew Party Online News – Elections Update (archive):

“Our task, and there are no shortcuts, is to build enough power to produce better choices in the future.

Overall: Campaign finance led the way, with overwhelming victories in Arkansas and Massachusetts. Not counting Washington, DC’s ANC races, NP members and supported candidates won 16 of 23 races, bringing our overall total to 110 victories in 163 races.

Illinois: The first NP member heads to Congress, as Danny Davis wins an overwhelming 85% victory yesterday (he got a higher percentage of the vote in that district than the President). NP member and State Senate candidate Barack Obama won uncontested. Interestingly, it appears that the local Democratic machine is trying to distance itself from our folks. At a “Democratic Unity” march on Chicago’s West Side, a flyer invited community members to join with a host of local democratic candidates. The only two west-side Democrats not listed: NP members Danny Davis (U.S. House candidate) and Michael Chandler (Alderman and Ward Committeeman).”

From the NewParty.Org  Winter 1996 update: “Chicago Campaigns —The Illinois New Party is working intensively on Willie Delgado’s state representative campaign. Delgado is part of an emerging Latino network in Chicago. We’re also backing Danny Davis in a Congressional race, Barack Obama for state representative, and judicial candidate Patricia Martin. In addition to the electoral work, the NP in Chicago is supporting a local living wage campaign and an effort to prevent the placement of a waste site on the West Side”


Birth Certificate, Ayers, Rev. Wright, ACORN, and the “New Party” — Now we discover Obama has family in politics/government with dad, Odinga and others

October 17, 2008

I thought I heard tell that Obama’s daddy was a goat herder? Now I research and find out that he comes from a well known political family in Africa. Although I’ve made this post short and to the point I’ve inserted ALOT of links should any part of this post pique your interest. It’s ALL interesting reading.

Me wonders what else the media  is withholding from us?

Obama’s mother Stanley Ann, PhD., initially taught English at the American embassy in Indonesia. Later, she would do work as an American anthropologist in Indonesia. She became a leader in microfinancing for women in Indonesia, well before the idea of giving women small loans became a major component of development. Read more here.

Obama’s maternal grandfather was a furniture salesman and grandmother a bank vice president. Read  more here.

Obama’s father was a finance minister in Kenya and came from a well to do politically influential family. Read more here and how he died here.

As I’m sure you know from my previous posts, BO’s cousin Raila Odinga (of the Luo tribe) is a Kenyan politician. On the last trip to Kenya, Obama helped his cousin campaign for President. Raila finished second in the 2007 Kenyan Presidential race by a few percentage points in a widely disputed election that Raila denounced as “rigged.”  Raila Odinga is currently prime minister of Kenya. Read more here, here and here.

The Odinga’s are a  family of well known rich, elitist African politicians

Raila Odinga’s older brother Oburu Odinga, is the Assistant Minister in the Ministry of Finance. (notice Obama Sr. was finance minister at one time). Read more here.

Cousin Raila’s father was in politics also. Oginga Odinga (full name is Jaramogi Ajuma Oginga Odinga) entered politics in 1957 and by 1964 was vice president of Kenya. (BO’s uncle?) Read more here and here.
