DEA TRACKED EVERY OPIOID PILL SOLD IN THE US. THE DATA IS OUT—AND IT’S HORRIFIC

SOURCE: ARSTECHNICA.COM

Between 2006 and 2012, opioid drug makers and distributors flooded the country with 76 billion pills of oxycodone and hydrocodone—highly addictive opioid pain medications that sparked the epidemic of abuse and overdoses that killed nearly 100,000 people in that time period.

As the epidemic surged over the seven-year period, so did the supply. The companies increased distribution from 8.4 billion in 2006 to 12.6 billion in 2012, a jump of roughly 50%. In all, the deluge of pills was enough to supply every adult and child in the country with around 36 opioid pills per year. Just a 10-day supply can hook 1 in 5 people into being long-term users, researchers have determined.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"The needs of the patients" did NOT include heavy addiction, over a short period of time, thank you very much.

There are alternatives to addiction, including meditation; diet; music; and more. Music calmed pre-op patients just as well as did drugs

I would hope for a future which combines the best,and vetted, alternative therapies with far lower doses of potentially addictive drugs, to keep people from getting addicted.

Unfortunately, these are alternatives which are not really supported by the medical/industrial complex at all, because it eats into drugs' profitability.

China's space station will plummet back down to Earth TODAY: Spacecraft will burn up in the atmosphere before debris is scattered across the Pacific Ocean in 'planned destruction'

China's Tiangong-2 spacecraft is currently rapidly descending towards Earth after deliberately dropping out of Earth's orbit.

Its path back to Earth will be a destructive one as it is expected the spacecraft will burn up upon re-entry.

The space station, which means 'Heavenly body' in Chinese, will be destroyed at some point today, and any debris that survives re-entry will likely be harmlessly scattered throughout the Pacific ocean between New Zealand and Chile.

Glenn Miller’s Disappearance, Accident or Cover Up?

On December 15, 1944, American orchestra leader, Glenn Miller, famous for hits like “Chattanooga Choo Choo,” “Pennsylvania 6-5000,” and “In The Mood,” was in England entertaining the troops serving in World War II. Although the weather was dicey, Miller and his orchestra agreed to perform in Paris in the days leading up to Christmas. So Miller sent his orchestra ahead with plans to meet up with them in France in three days. He never made it. After boarding a small airplane with its two crew members, Miller took off for the flight over the English Channel. He, his plane, and the two crew members were never seen again. The obvious conclusion was that the plane crashed into the English Channel, but there may be more to the story.

Woke words: PC bastion Berkeley adopts gender-neutral city code, ‘manpower’ becomes ‘human effort’

In the latest politically correct escalation of the ongoing culture war in the US, Berkeley City Council voted unanimously to remove gender-specific words and phrases from its municipal code on Tuesday.

As part of the politically correct purge of offending, gendered language within the city’s municipal code, a “manhole” will now become “maintenance hole,” “craftsmen” are now “artisans,” “heirs” are “beneficiaries,” and “manpower” will now be classified as “human effort.”

UK commandos fail to ‘liberate’ Estonian island during wargame, beaten by locals

The action was an utter defeat for the Brits, or at least that’s how the drill’s ‘referees’ saw it when they awarded victory in the Battle of Saaremaa to the Estonians.

The Royal Navy did not provide an in-depth analysis of why the liberation mission flopped. They mentioned that the Estonians had more personnel fighting, and that their troops had grown up on Saaremaa. They therefore “knew every rock and tree upon it.”

The British also pointed out that some of the UK Apache helicopters were fighting for the Estonian side. Despite the referees’ verdict, “the commandos claim it was a draw,” the Royal Navy noted in a lighthearted fashion.

Known as the Zorro Ranch, the high-desert property is now tied to an investigation that the state attorney general’s office says it has opened into Epstein with plans to forward findings to federal authorities in New York.

Attorney claims Jeffrey Epstein had improper sexual contact with one woman while he was serving time

At least one young woman has accused Jeffrey Epstein of "improper sexual contact" while he was serving a 13-month jail sentence for state charges in 2008 and 2009, according to a lawyer who represents dozens of Epstein accusers.

Bradley Edwards, the lawyer, also alleged during a press conference Tuesday in New York that Epstein had inappropriate contact with some women as recently as 2011.

Edwards was responding to claims made Monday by Epstein's lawyers that Epstein had maintained a "spotless 14-year record," with "meticulous obedience" to the law, since he pleaded guilty to state prostitution-related charges in 2008 and was released from jail.

Last week, federal prosecutors in New York charged Epstein with sex trafficking of minors and sex trafficking conspiracy. He has pleaded not guilty.

Journalist Goes to Ilhan Omar’s Homeland to Prove How Great It Is – Gets Killed by Terrorists

Before President Donald Trump suggested on Twitter Sunday that Rep. Ilhan Omar "go back" and "help fix" her native Somalia, Hodan Nalayeh was already in the country doing just that.

According to a Washington Post report published Saturday, the Somali-Canadian journalist had returned to the country of her birth to tell "uplifting" stories of how people lived there. However, her homecoming ended in tragedy.

By the time Trump unleashed his nativistic tirade against Omar, Nalayeh had been dead for two days.

She was killed Friday when al-Shabab militants stormed the Asasey Hotel in Kismayo, killing at least 26 people. It took around 14 hours for Somali security forces to regain control of the hotel, where another journalist and at least one American were among the dead.

IN THE DOCK Twelve Israeli teens who ‘gang-raped Brit woman, 19, as they laughed and filmed attack at Ayia Napa hotel’ hauled into Cyprus court

The woman told police that the large group held her down while taking videos on their mobile phones and laughing, according to Ynet News

She is reported to have meet a member of the group three days prior to the attack and engaged in sexual relations on multiple occasions with the teen.

According to court documents the victim had 'scratches on her lower limbs' as a result of the trauma and had agreed to go into the hotel room at around 3.30am with one of the males.

She then claims that once inside 11 other teens entered the room and raped her.

The Times of Israel reports some or all of those being quizzed by cops are 16 or 17 years old and three of those arrested have since admitted to having sex with the girl.

Though the men claim it took place with 'with love and consent'.

Three of the suspects were bought to the Famagusta Court, in Paralimni, today with the other nine arriving an hour later.

LOOKS LIKE EPSTEIN WAS AN INTELLIGENCE ASSET

The news media is going to do everything possible to deflect your attention from this basic fact:

Epstein’s Austrian passport with a home address in Saudi Arabia is a MAJOR smoking gun.

Why is it a smoking gun?

This was a real working passport issued by a foreign government.

Who is able to get passports issued at will – legally or illegally?

The passport was used. It had multiple visas. It was not a decoy to protect him from terrorists. And there is no legal way to get one for that purpose anyway.

He used it to travel from Europe to and from Saudi Arabia.

The passport says he had a home in Saudi Arabia. Did he?

Maybe the lazy news media will check the address out.

If he had a home in Saudi Arabia, what was it for?

What is Communism?

Ultimately, mass shootings occur to promote an incremental ban on guns, the main remaining obstacle to the imposition of Communism in the US today.

The Rothschilds are Cabalist Jews who worship Lucifer who represents their own demented megalomania. They are imposing their occult tyranny by virtue of their worldwide monopoly over the medium of exchange. They produce credit & currency from nothing in the form of a debt to themselves, something our government could do itself, interest-and-debt-free. Organized Jewry and Freemasonry are accomplices in this scam. Alas, our "money" is just coupons, virtual chips in their digital casino. They can manipulate or void these chips any time they want.
