The War on Pain Management

0

Private response to a Danielle Stella tweet:

There needs to be a congressional investigation into the tactics being used to prosecute — or rather PERSECUTE — specialists who prescribe pain medications.  The DOJ is having doctors testify in court who have ZERO experience treating the conditions for which these drugs are being prescribed, with many of them being hired to work as full-time consultants STRAIGHT OUT OF MED SCHOOL.‬

I have been fortunate that my neurologist is still willing to treat my pain, as his practice has otherwise ceased prescribing opioid medications.  Yet he cut my dosage IN HALF after two of his colleagues were sentenced to federal prison DESPITE ADHERING TO CDC GUIDELINES.

(He told me he had three daughters, two in college, and that he couldn’t afford to go to prison.)

The DOJ simply had their pets testify that certain patients COULD have been treated with lower doses than were prescribed, and in at least one case they claimed not enough alternative forms of pain management had been explored ‪before resorting to opioids.‬

The government is FLAGRANTLY interfering in our medical care in response to a media-manufactured crisis that politicians from BOTH sides of the aisle have eagerly exploited for the PR points.

Because who wouldn’t want to help addicts who so obviously became addicted ThRoUgH nO fAuLt Of ThEiR oWn?

The reality is that in almost every case of overdose, at least one other substance was involved, or the user had otherwise failed to take as directed — if they were even using these meds under a doctor’s’ supervision. And many of them weren’t.

it’s scary enough to face the prospect of socialized medicine, and what would happen to me if my cancer should return.  I underwent a series of unconventional surgeries that would certainly NOT have been covered under any government plan.

But I at least had opioids to manage my pain — which was so intense that they had to dose me even as I slept.  The recovery was brutal. Withdrawal from the intravenous dilaudid to get back on to tramadal truly sucked — every time.

The aftermath hasn’t been easy. Since my pain medication was cut in half, I went from being able to perform activities that most people take for granted — shopping, driving, keeping up with friends — to being housebound.

But what truly terrifies me is the prospect of the cancer returning, the government dictating my course of treatment and the extent to which I am deemed worthy of pain management.

[Elsewhere] Protect Andy Ngo

0

You’re probably aware that Andy Ngo was assaulted and robbed by Antifa yesterday.  What you might not have heard was that the attack was premeditated, and that he spent the night in the hospital with a brain hemorrhage.

No one has been more aggressive than Andy when it comes to reporting on hate crime hoaxes and Antifa (both of which the mainstream media refuses to cover), and the authoritarian left HATES him for this.

The fascist fucks who assaulted him are celebrating this as a great victory, basking in the online praise of their woke enablers.

This isn’t the first time Andy has been attacked by Antifas — last time he was sprayed in the eyes with bear mace, and the time before that it was a punch to the stomach.  The violence keeps escalating.

At this point, Andy would have to be crazy not to have second thoughts about what he’s doing.  Which is where we come in.

Just $5 can help pay Andy’s medical expenses, replace his stolen equipment, and — most importantly — KEEP HIM IN THE GAME.

Andy needs to know how valued his work is, and we need to send a message to Antifa that political violence will get them nowhere.

When they attack someone, we will assist with the medical costs.  When they rob someone, we will replace what was stolen.  When they spread lies, we will provide reality checks.

If you can’t afford to donate, please share the link and help spread word of what happened to Andy.  Of what’s happening in Portland.  Of what could happen in YOUR town should domestic terrorism continue to be accepted as a valid form of political protest.

DRAFT: The Making of a YouTube Radical

How Tim Pool converts innocent viewers into alt-right bigots

Provocateur Tim Pool has once again come under fire for his hateful ways, questioning the progressive media narrative that YouTube radicalizes people into alt-right bigots and spreading the ridiculous conspiracy theory that the mainstream media is simply out to deplatform and discredit its competition.

WATCH: Exposing the motive behind media smears of YouTube

Which is literally ridiculous. The content creators whose careers and livelihoods have been destroyed in the wake of Vox Adpocalypse weren’t even in the same league as traditional outlets like Vox (owned by NBC), NPC Daily, and the Fabulous New York Times.

What matters is not the quantity of subscribers but the quality of the content. And the mainstream media produces the BEST content.

Besides, all of the people who have been deplatformed or otherwise demonitized were bad actors. Anyone who thinks it acceptable to include upload videos about World War II or the Holocaust without editing out the involvement of Hitler and the Nazis per ADL guidelines is probably a Nazi too.

Tim’s defense of YouTube and his continued harassment of the journo community is clearly an attempt to obfuscate the fact that he, more than any other YouTuber, is turning helpless viewers into Nazis.

As a handsome and stunningly-brave senior report for NPC Daily whose journalistic integrity is above scrutiny, I recently sat down with one of Tim Pool’s victims over a refreshing soy latte at an empty Starbucks at nine o’clock on a weekday morning.  The poor xir was so literally frightened that xe was only willing to speak under the condition of total anonymity — which is why no one else was around to witness our meeting.

The ADL is a Professional Hate Group

0

I fucking hate the ADL.  They exist for one purpose only, and that’s to promote censorship.  They thrive on Antisemitism (legit or otherwise), along with every other form of discrimination (in recent years they have branched out).

These people are in the business of CREATING hate.  If they actually cared about Antisemitism they would support the free exchange of ideas instead of seeking to silence anyone, including Jews (the very people they claim to be protecting) whose views run contrary to the narrative they are trying to push.

The ADL doesn’t care about helping Jews the same way feminists don’t actually give a shit about women.  When it suits their agenda to use them, they’ll use them.  If not, they’ll discard them.

I keep saying this again and again: Antisemitism — both real and imagined — is the ADL’s bread and butter.  Their continued existence depends on the very hatred they claim to be fighting.  Which is why when the supply dwindles, they have to create more of it.  Who profits every time some maniac shoots up a synagogue?  The ADL and other professional hate organizations like the SPLC.

These professional hate groups WANT to push people over the edge.  They promote the far-left conspiracy theory that America is becoming an increasingly worse place for women and minorities, when nothing could be farther from the truth.  And the media indulges them because anger and fear generates clicks.  They gain viewers, subscribers, and social media shares.

Hate has become a very profitable profession, and the particular brand of hatred being peddled has the power to influence elections and ultimately decide the fate of nations.

These professional hate groups have joined forces with the mainstream media to wage a war against the most institutionally-discriminated again group in America: heterosexual white males.  The constant onslaught of racist, sexist rhetoric from these groups (and from bigoted journos and TV hosts like Sarah Jeong, Talia Levin, and Don Lemon) has two purposes:

(1) To push already unstable individuals over the edge to commit acts of violence

(2) To scare minorities and sympathetic “allies” into voting for Democrats

Every new attack reinforces their “white men are the biggest terror threat in this county” narrative, and the donations come flooding in.  The campaign contributions come flooding in.  The media can afford to pay their people instead of laying them off en masse.

I’m just going to close by saying that although plenty has been said about YouTube going full blitzkrieg on WWII history because Nazis, not enough attention is being paid to the ADL’s role in all this.
