I've been following the activities of the "Quackbusters"
for about five years, ever since the name Stephen Barrett
(quackwatch.com) came up, as a player, against a client of mine in California.
I asked the question "why would this group be using a doctor from Pennsylvania,
as their witness, when there are 300,000 health professionals in this State?"
Thus began my education. Now I'm going to educate YOU...
The "quackbuster" operation is a conspiracy. It
is a propaganda enterprise, one part crackpot, two parts evil. It's sole
purpose is to discredit, and suppress, in an "anything goes" attack
mode, what is wrongfully named "Alternative Medicine." It has
declared war on reality. The conspirators are acting in the interests of,
and are being paid, directly and indirectly, by the "conventional"
Millions of health freedom fighters, and members of the public,
worldwide, know what I know. Public outrage and reaction is growing. After
25 years of unopposed success, the "Quackbusters" are now in real
trouble... "The end" for them, has begun. They, themselves are
The "Quackbuster Conspiracy" is in a desperate place
now. They know they've lost the war, and are going to pay a terrible price
for their actions. The fear is in their eyes...
Yes. When the self-named "Quackbusters" stumbled around
to find a derisive name to call their victims, they picked the word "Quack,"
without ever bothering to discover it's origins. Its original meaning, from
Europe, comes from the term "quacksalver" which was used to describe
Dentists who were dumb enough to use mercury (a poison) as fillings for
teeth. Look at propagandist, and "Quackbuster" king-pin, Stephen
Barrett's website (quackwatch.com), and you'll find that HE IS IN FAVOR
of mercury (amalgam) tooth fillings.
Barrett, his cronies, and minions, are not known to do intelligent
Yes. The "Quackbuster Conspiracy" was started shortly after
the American Medical Association (AMA) lost the court battle to the Chiropractors
in a case begun in Federal court in 1976. The Federal judge ordered the
AMA's covert operation shut down - and leave the Chiropractors alone. The
AMA files, library, etc., ended up in Stephen Barrett's 1,800 square foot
basement in Allentown, PA. Barrett, and his minions, had the common sense
to stay away from criticizing Chiropractors for quite some time. Barrett
has since abandoned that common sense.
Federal judges have a way of enforcing their decisions using
shackles, Federal Marshals, the federal prison facilities, asset seizure,
etc... Even Barrett, in all his incredible arrogance, isn't dumb enough
to match wills with a Federal Judge. I think the Chiropractic Association
should consider re-opening the Wilks case in front of that same Federal
Judge - and point right at Barrett, and his cronies.
In that early, educational case for me in California, Stephen
Barrett and two slime-ball investigators from the California Medical Board,
had convinced members of the Laguna Beach Police Department that a nutritionist
using ozone therapy was "a sex criminal preying on women." Flak-jacketed
thugs screwed a gun into Salvatore D'Onofrio's ear, forced
him to lie on the ground, and thus began a brutal, anything goes, persecution.
D'Onofrio's attorney was a hiking partner of mine, and told
me the story on a ridgeline, seven miles up from a trailhead. I laugh now
when I remember my naive response "This can't be happening in America."
Sal D'Onofrio, through his attorney, hired us, at day 43 in
solitary confinement in the Orange County Jail. He was in "solitary"
because that's what they do with sex criminals. He was in jail because the
judge had set bail at $500,000, an amount his supporters
couldn't raise. Barrett's minions were ruining D'Onofrio's life in the press.
We organized a bail hearing for day 48 of incarceration, put
62 of D'Onofrio's supporters in the courtroom, LA network television in
the jury box, got the front page of the LA Times, etc., etc., etc., - and
the judge let D'Onofrio out on his own recognizance. Seven
weeks later the prosecutor dropped the charges.
Who are these people that would, so casually, inflict that
kind of nightmare on an innocent man?
James Carter, MD's authoritative book "Racketeering
In Medicine," published by Hampton Roads, carefully explains
the "Quackbuster Conspiracy."
"Alternative Medicine" is defined as any protocol, action, or
therapy that isn't "drugs, radiation, or surgery oriented."
Wrongfully named? Yes. So-called "alternative medicine"
is actually the health choice of planet earth. It is a combination of every
good health idea invented by mankind, in every country and culture on this
planet. There is nothing "alternative" about it. Labeling planet
earth's health choice as "alternative" is, and was, a propaganda
North Americans have overwhelmingly (by their purchases) made
"Alternative Medicine" the "health choice of the people"
- for the best of reasons: it works better than allopathic, it "removes
the cause" rather than "treating the symptoms," it is cost
effective, it makes people feel better and think clearer, and it doesn't
have all those horrible effects, and side effects, of invasive surgery or
More than half of the US health dollar in 1999 was spent on
"Alternative Medicine" and it was all out-of-pocket. Conventional
medicine is being paid for, and is surviving, only because insurance and
Medicare pay for it - the public won't spend an out-of-pocket nickel on
Alternative Medicine philosophies fit the "American (I'll
make my own decisions)" way of thinking. Allopathic Medicine philosophies
fit the "Germanic (follow my orders)" way. "Alternative Medicine"
is for people who think for themselves - Americans.
The door to real "alternatives" is barely open.
The future of medicine is right in front of us - it isn't in pharmaceuticals
- it is in nutrition, body cleansing, prevention, oxygen therapies and energy
medicine - all of which are constantly targeted by the sleaziest of the
The "Quackbuster" Stronghold The Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB), is a vital Medical
Doctor (MD) control point. It is the trade organization of all 50 State's
Medical Boards. The FSMB is the organization that writes the policy manuals,
and provides training for, Medical Board investigators and prosecutors all
over the United States. The FSMB is the "Quackbuster" police agency.
The "Quackbusters" use the FSMB to persecute two
groups (1) "Alternative Practitioners" within the MD ranks (they
treat them like traitors), and (2) non-licensed alternative health professionals
(they charge them with "practicing medicine without a license").
The "Quackbusters" through the FSMB, have been able
to change the focus of prosecutions against "bad doctors." They
define "bad doctors" as those that use alternative modalities
- and maximum penalties are exacted. We have seen in California, that real
"bad doctors," those that kill their patients, actually get off
with a slap-on-the-hand by using the defense "but I prescribed a lot
of drugs." State medical Boards are not serving the needs of "we
the people," they are serving the needs of the "Quackbusters,"
and their paymasters.
Medical Board prosecutions are funded by the States - Barrett,
and his slime artists, don't have to spend a dime... I couldn't even count
the number of "alternative medicine" practitioners currently under
persecution from mis-informed Medical Board investigators and prosecutors.
The damage done to Americans from this attack is incalculable...
Barrett's Dubious Claims About What "Health
Fraud" Really Is
The US government has indicated that "Health Fraud" is a major
problem in the United States Health Care system. Statistics show that "conventional
medicine" rips off the American public significantly each year in bogus
billings, false claims, unnecessary procedures and tests, etc...
Attorney General Janet Reno has a special nationwide "Health
Fraud Prosecution Unit" to deal with this massive problem. The prosecutions
are against mega-greedy hospitals, HMOs, ambulance companies, nursing facilities,
etc. - all "Conventional" medical units - not "Alternative."
But, if you peruse Stephen Barrett's (don't call him doctor,
he's not licensed) website, you get the impression that "allopaths"
are to be classified somewhere next to archangels - and "alternatives"
are snake-oil salesmen, akin to the devil's minions. Barrett clearly defines,
in smirky arrogance, health fraud as "alternative medicine."
Doesn't Barrett read national statistics on health fraud?
Of course he does - he just ignores them. And "Barrett's parrots"
at the FSMB mimic their supreme commander's every word in their policy statements.
Anyone can read FSMB policy statements, in their entirety, on the web. Just
go to www.fsmb.org and start reading. They, like Barrett, define "health
fraud" as "alternative medicine," and fail to even mention
the real national "health fraud" statistics.
Why the Fear in Their Eyes?
Three Reasons: Exposure, ridicule, and public rage.
(1). EXPOSURE - Health Freedom Fighters, tired of the persecutions,
and outnumbering the "Quackbusters" 100,000 to 1, are now watching
Barrett and his soldiers carefully. They've decided to put a stop to Barrett
and company. Lists are being made of who the "Quackbuster Conspirators"
are, what their function is, where they fit into the conspiracy, who they
work for, who their associates are, where they live, and what their probable
motives are. Their daily activities, as "Quackbusters," are being
monitored, and documented.
Health leaders consider Barrett, and company, to be running
a subversive organization working against the interests of America.
(2). RIDICULE - Examination of Barrett's operation proves
that the "Quackbusters" are a paper tiger. They are a construction
with a 25 year old modus operandi. Their membership is small, they have
an even smaller core group, the industry is turning its back on their extremism,
and their leadership "public presence" is laughable. Their support
network could best be described as "pea-brained."
Their "annual meeting" for the conspiracy was held
in a Super 8 motel in Missouri - 25 stalwarts attended from, at least, six
different plotter groups. Not very impressive.
"Bizarre" Stephen Barrett, his cronies and minions,
even labeled two time Nobel Prize Winner Linus Pauling as a "Quack."
The American public, in a consumer-driven movement, is rejecting, with laughter
and ridicule, Barrett and company's ludicrous assertions - hence the term
"Quackpot" is now used, commonly, to describe the self-named "Quackbusters."
(3). PUBLIC RAGE - The American public is just now realizing
two things (a) that a good many of those "alternative" things
being blocked, and suppressed, have been around for a long while - but not
available to them because of the conspiracy, and (b) that the system to
find and put new things in place is corrupt - and works against Americans.
Every "cure" since polio has been suppressed, and the proponents
of those cures, reviled by the "Quackbuster Conspirators."
Statistics show that every one of those "cures"
worked to some extent...
Barrett, his cronies, minions, and henchmen, have every reason
to fear public rage. Russian leader Nikita Khrushchev said it best. He said,
"We would never invade America. For every American has a gun..."
"You mean my mother didn't have to die that horribly,
or even die at all?" is a question more, and more Americans are asking...
