The clip from Democracy Now shows what the federal government has done and will continue to do with information they gather from spying on us. In the case present, these noble Doctors looking to report that the FDA is sanctioning a radiation machine that is less effective than existing equipment and would blast the patient/victim with hundreds of times than the dosage of the more effective machines.

A congressional investigation into a surveillance program by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which was “unprecedented in scope and intensity” and directed at whistleblowers working within the agency, concluded that the spying operation was unlawful.
House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chair Darrell Issa and Senate Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Chuck Grassley released a joint report on the program initiated in April 2010, which they described in a press release as a “highly-invasive surveillance program that monitored employees who contacted Congress and the media with concerns about FDA’s medical device approval process.”

The Obama administration has decided to fight a court order to allow Plan B to be sold over the counter to younger women. This is a very disappointing move by a man that goes to great lengths to pretend to be a “technocrat.”

Would you sacrifice your child’s health or life for the greater good? That is the question that arises in tonight’s film The Greater Good, directed, produced, and written by tonight’s guests Leslie Manookian and Kendall Nelson. The Greater Good takes a step back from the recent divisiveness discussing the issue’s complexity and nuances, bringing the bigger picture into focus through the stories of three families affected by vaccinations, with experts on both sides and in the middle of the vaccination debate.

On December 21st, the Food and Drug Administration announced that the first genetically-engineered animal ever approaching approval for public consumption — a hybrid Chinook Salmon-Pouty — has been declared to have “no significant impact” on the environment. As of the 21st, the FDA’s tentative approval of this GMO salmon, called “Frankenfish” by its many detractors, entered a 60-day public comment period.
In Alaska, home of a high percentage of the world’s remaining wild salmon, and a state where fish farming has been banned since 1989, the state’s three national legislators quickly responded to the FDA decision.
