FDA Regulation - The Hustle to Outlaw Tobacco

FDA Panel is Chaired by the SAME CHARLATAN!

The new Tobacco Products Scientific Advisory Committee of the Food and Drug Administration is chaired by the same fraudster, Jonathan M. Samet, who has ring-led every major anti-smoker initiative. Jon Samet has been an anti-smoking activist since the Fifth World Conference on Smoking and Health in 1983. He was one of three "consulting scientific editors" and "prepared draft chapters or portions" of the 1986 Surgeon General Report, "The Health Consequences of Involuntary Smoking," and was also involved in the 1984, 1985, 1989, 1990, 1994, 1998, 2000, 2001 and 2004 SG Reports, and was Senior Scientific Editor of the 2006 Surgeon General Report, "The Health Consequences of Involuntary Exposure to Tobacco Smoke." He was also a member of the Science Advisory Board of the so-called "EPA" Report on ETS, the key chapters of which were actually secretly written by an anti-smoking activist crony of Samet's, using illegal pass-through contracts to conceal his role. Samet was Chairman of the IARC (International Agency for Research on Cancer) committee which produced the fraudulent Monograph on Smoking and Involuntary Smoking in 2003. In 2005, Samet and three anti-smoking activist cronies formed a majority of the voting board of the ASHRAE Position Document on ETS. In addition, he committed perjury in 1998 in the State of Minnesota lawsuit against the cigarette companies, and testified in the US Department of Justice lawsuit against them as well.

The anti-smokers lie that their various reports on secondhand smoke and smoking are "independent." But in fact, they were all produced by Samet and a little handpicked clique of his fellow travelers! And every one of them is based on the scientific fraud of deliberately ignoring, or failing to adequately account for, the role of infection in diseases blamed on smoking. No input from real scientists has ever been allowed in these fraudulent reports! This is proof that the system is totally corrupt, and under the exclusive control of an evil clique of politically-connected (and PROTECTED) conspirators!

FDA Tobacco Regulation is Founded on Deliberate FRAUD

ANTI-SMOKER SMOKER SCIENTIFIC FRAUD IS THE ISSUE! There have been more than 50 studies which show that human papillomaviruses cause over ten times more lung cancers than they pretend are caused by passive smoking. Passive smokers are more likely to have been exposed to this virus, but all of the anti’s fraudulent studies are based on nothing but lifestyle questionnaires, so that means that they have been cynically DESIGNED to falsely blame passive smoking for all those extra lung cancers that are really caused by HPV. This is how the anti-smokers' passive smoking scam operates, and how they fraudulently goose the supposed deaths from smoking as well.

HPV Causes Lung Cancer

The anti-smokers have systematically committed this same type of fraud in every single disease that they blame on smoking. This is nothing but flagrant Nazi pseudo-science, whose purpose is to commit cultural genocide against us. And the dirty traitors in Congress have let them get away with it!

Gibbered the lying Senator from Massachusetts: "The tobacco industry has a long, dishonorable history of providing misleading information about the health consequences of smoking," Kennedy said. "The largest disinformation campaign in the history of the corporate world must end." That lie-spewing piece of garbage! It's the anti-smoking vermin who deliberately use defective studies, that are designed to falsely blame smoking for diseases that are really caused by INFECTION, in order to spread lies and deceive the public! Furthermore, the bloodsuckers' precious EPA ETS report was actually written by handpicked anti-smoking activists, via illegal pass-through contracts to conceal their identities, because the real EPA scientists were against calling ETS a human carcinogen! Furthermore, on the board of directors of the pass-through company sat a crony of George W. Bush, with former California Rep. Tony Coelho to represent the Democraps' active support of scientific fraud and corruption! Gibbered the dirty lie-spewer from the most corrupt and evil organization on earth, the American Cancer Society, which is flagrantly guilty of the aforementioned scientific fraud: "'Tobacco is a product that is known to kill, yet consumers of the product are not informed about the ingredients,' said Steven Weiss, a spokesman for the lobbying arm of the American Cancer Society." The Cancer Society vermin know that their vaunted ingredients list is completely meaningless, because they get changed into generic combustion products such as benzo[a]pyrene, of which even active smokers get over six times more from ordinary food! But the bloodsucking filth have deliberately hysteria-mongered the public with phony scares about chemicals for six decades, while they concealed and suppressed research on infection! (Kennedy to seek tighter reins on tobacco. By Diedtra Henderson. Boston Globe, Jan. 3, 2007.)

Philip Morris's collusion with the anti-smokers

As for Philip Morris's support of FDA regulation: Philip Morris has been an anti-smoker Black Operation from the beginning. J. Russell Forgan, who later wrote the secret act that created the Central Intelligence Agency, in the 1930s began financing the Tobacco and Allied Stocks group that took over Philip Morris in the 1950s. Glore, Forgan was the chief underwriter of Philip Morris in the 1940s, and Forgan personally attended their director meetings in the 1950s. Edward Lasker, the stepson of the head of the head of the American Cancer Society, Mary Woodard Lasker, was on the board ofv Philip Morris from 1961 to 1981. Their media stooges anointed Philip Morris as the spokesman for the tobacco industry, so that Philip Morris could put up a sham pretense of fighting the anti-smokers, while allowing them to get away with their lies and scientific frauds.

Philip Morris's predecessor, Benson & Hedges
The "Power Elite" Controls Both Sides

A government-by-conspiracy that spews lies and defamations against its citizens is a criminal organization, not a legitimate authority!

For six decades, these lie-spewing, bloodsucking anti-smoker parasites have deliberately used defective studies which are designed to falsely blame tobacco for diseases that are really caused by infection. They created their mountain of lies for one reason: as a pretext to outlaw tobacco. The "Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act" is their corrupt bill for FDA regulation, which is crafted to provide them with authority to do so.

Page 13:

"SEC. 3. PURPOSE.
The purposes of this Act are—
(1) to provide authority to the Food and Drug Administration to regulate tobacco products under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. 301 et seq.), by recognizing it as the primary Federal regulatory authority with respect to the manufacture, marketing, and distribution of tobacco products;
(2) to ensure that the Food and Drug Administration has the authority to address issues of particular concern to public health officials, especially the use of tobacco by young people and dependence on tobacco;
(3) to authorize the Food and Drug Administration to set national standards controlling the manufacture of tobacco products and the identity, public disclosure, and amount of ingredients used in such products;
(4) to provide new and flexible enforcement authority to ensure that there is effective oversight of the tobacco industry’s efforts to develop, introduce, and promote less harmful tobacco products;

[(5) this is the filthy vermins' tool to effectively outlaw tobacco.]

(5) to vest the Food and Drug Administration with the authority to regulate the levels of tar, nicotine, and other harmful components of tobacco products.

(6) in order to ensure that consumers are better informed, to require tobacco product manufacturers to disclose research which has not previously been made available, as well as research generated in the future, relating to the health and dependency effects or safety of tobacco products;

[This is a reeking lie! To ensure that consumers are better informed, they must get to hear about the anti-smokers' scientific fraud and political corruption - SO THEY KNOW THAT IT'S THE U.S. GOVERNMENT THAT'S BEEN LYING ALL THESE YEARS!]

Page 55 - this allows the Secretary to set such ridiculous standards for nicotine or other constituents that cigarettes are effectively outlawed:

‘‘(4) CONTENT OF TOBACCO PRODUCT STANDARDS.—A tobacco product standard established under this section for a tobacco product—
‘‘(A) shall include provisions that are appropriate for the protection of the public health, including provisions, where appropriate—
‘‘(i) for the reduction of nicotine yields of the product;
‘‘(ii) for the reduction or elimination of other constituents, including smoke constituents, or harmful components of the product; or
‘‘(iii) relating to any other requirement under subparagraph (B);
‘‘(B) shall, where appropriate for the protection of the public health, include—
‘‘(i) provisions respecting the construction, components, ingredients, additives, constituents, including smoke constituents, and properties of the tobacco product;
‘‘(ii) provisions for the testing (on a sample basis or, if necessary, on an individual basis) of the tobacco product;

Page 58, here's more:

‘‘(C) STANDARD.—Upon a determination by the Secretary that an additive, constituent (including smoke constituent), or other component of the product that is the subject of the proposed tobacco product standard is harmful, it shall be the burden of any party challenging the proposed standard to prove that the proposed standard will not reduce or eliminate the risk of illness or injury.

In other words, the filthy gibbering subhumans can make any ridiculous accusation they please, with the burden of proof on the accused - just as they've done all along!

Page 107 lets the vermin pass more restrictive local laws

‘‘SEC. 917. PRESERVATION OF STATE AND LOCAL AUTHORITY.
‘‘(a) IN GENERAL.—
‘‘(1) PRESERVATION.—Except as provided in paragraph (2)(A), nothing in this chapter, or rules 19
promulgated under this chapter, shall be construed to limit the authority of a Federal agency (including the Armed Forces), a State or political subdivision of a State, or the government of an Indian tribe to enact, adopt, promulgate, and enforce any law, rule, regulation, or other measure with respect to tobacco products that is in addition to, or more stringent than, requirements established under this chapter, including a law, rule, regulation, or other measure relating to or prohibiting the sale, distribution, possession, exposure to, access to, advertising and promotion of, or use of tobacco products by individuals of any age, information reporting to the State, or measures relating to fire safety standards for tobacco products. No provision of this chapter shall limit or otherwise affect any State, Tribal, or local taxation of tobacco products.

Page 114 assesses extortionate "user fees" - typical of those dirty parasites, who've been feeding on us all along. And it's not a "user fee" because WE don't want their "services" in the first place. It's an ABUSER fee, to fund our own persecutors.

‘‘SEC. 920. USER FEE.
‘‘(a) ESTABLISHMENT OF QUARTERLY USER FEE.—
The Secretary shall assess a quarterly user fee with respect to every quarter of each fiscal year commencing fiscal year 2008, calculated in accordance with this section, upon each manufacturer and importer of tobacco products subject to this chapter.
‘‘(b) FUNDING OF FDA REGULATION OF TOBACCO PRODUCTS.—The Secretary shall make user fees collected pursuant to this section available to pay, in each fiscal year, for the costs of the activities of the Food and Drug Administration related to the regulation of tobacco products under this chapter.

‘‘(A) for fiscal year 2008 shall be $85,000,000;
‘‘(B) for fiscal year 2009 shall be $175,000,000;
‘‘(C) for fiscal year 2010 shall be $300,000,000;

Page 135 - the pile of lies the filthy vermin want on the package - which they manufactured by deliberately using defective studies designed to falsely blame smoking for diseases caused by infection!

‘‘(1) IN GENERAL.—It shall be unlawful for any person to manufacture, package, sell, offer to sell, distribute, or import for sale or distribution within the United States any cigarettes the package of which fails to bear, in accordance with the requirements of this section, one of the following labels:

‘‘WARNING: Cigarettes are addictive’. [A trumped-up smear concocted by the same filthy vermin who commit the scientific frauds.]

‘‘WARNING: Tobacco smoke can harm your children’. [Anti-smokers are ignoring the fact that EBV and HPV infect children]

EBV & Socioeconomic Status
HPV Infects Kids

‘‘WARNING: Cigarettes cause fatal lung disease’.[See how little research on infection that the vermin have done, so they can keep blaming smoking]

Cytomegalovirus Is Implicated in COPD

‘‘WARNING: Cigarettes cause cancer’. [See how many different kinds of cancer the anti-smoker filth have lied about!]

Lies About Smoking and Cervical Cancer
Helicobacter pylori causes ulcers and stomach cancer - see how the vermin committed perjury at the Minnesota tobacco trial!
Epstein-Barr Virus Causes Gastric Carcinoma
Hepatitis Viruses are the Real Cause of "Smoking Related" Liver Cancer
Epstein-Barr Virus Causes Nasopharyngeal Cancer
Epstein-Barr Virus Causes Lymphomas
HPV Causes Head and Neck Cancers
HPV Causes Oral Cancer
HPV is implicated in laryngeal cancer
HPV is implicated in bladder cancer
HPVs Cause Skin Cancer
JC Polyoma Virus Causes Colon Cancer

‘‘WARNING: Cigarettes cause strokes and heart disease’.

How the Public Was Brainwashed About Heart Disease - see how the vermin suppressed research on infection for 30 years
Infections Cause Stroke
Chlamydia pneumoniae Causes Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm

‘‘WARNING: Smoking during pregnancy can harm your baby’. [see how the bloodsucking subhumans have concealed an enormous, gold-standard study by the National Institute of Neurological Diseases and Stroke]

Chorioamnionitis Causes Perinatal Illnesses Blamed on Smoking

‘‘WARNING: Smoking can kill you’. [NO, IT DOESN'T. Anti-smokers use fraudulent studies to falsely blame smoking.]

‘‘WARNING: Tobacco smoke causes fatal lung disease in non-smokers’. [EVERY ANTI-SMOKERS STUDY IS JUNK, BECAUSE THEY IGNORE THE CARCINOGENIC VIRUSES THAT CAUSE LUNG CANCER.]

HPV Causes Lung Cancer
EBV Causes Lymphoepithelioma-like Lung Cancer
Adenoviruses Are Implicated in Lung Cancer

[Furthermore, their precious "EPA" ETS report was actually written by handpicked anti-smokers (one of whom has publicly confessed), using illegal pass-through contracts to conceal their role, because the real EPA scientists were against calling ETS a human carcinogen. And, on the board of directors of the corrupt EPA contractor sat a crony of George W. Bush, and a bigshot of the Democratic Party as well!]

The EPA's ETS Lies

‘‘WARNING: Quitting smoking now greatly reduces serious risks to your health’.[NO, IT DOESN'T. Anti-smokers use fraudulent studies to falsely blame smoking.]

The dirty bloodsucking lie-spewers have smear-labels for other tobacco products, too.

Text of H.R.1256 as Placed on Calendar Senate / OpenCongress

The House of Representatives, HR-1108, July 30, 2008

WE HAVE BEEN SOLD DOWN THE RIVER BY COWARDS AND TRAITORS!

Look at the kind if despicable, cowardly reasons - INSTEAD OF GOOD ONES - that the supposed opponents gave for voting against it. Look at that cringing bootlicker, Rep. BOEHNER of Ohio, p. H7570: "Now, listen. Most of my colleagues know that I smoke. I know that smoking is probably not good for my health. Most people who smoke in America know that smoking is probably not good for their health. Do we need the Federal Government to tell us? Do we need to spend $5 billion of smokers' money for the government to tell us that smoking is not good for us? I don't think so. This bill has not been through the legislative process as everything was promised that it should be. Frankly, the whole idea that the Federal Government ought to regulate more and more and more of our lives just gets under my skin." You loathsome whore of all whores, the Government has been funding deliberate scientific fraud for over six decades, for the express purpose of tyrannizing over our personal lives - and you haven't so much as batted an eyelid about it yet An unending torrent of LIES LIES LIES LIES LIES - with YOU endorsing every vicious, rancid one of them!

Mr. BARTON of Texas: "On the substance of the bill, I disagree with the central premise, that the Food and Drug Administration should have the authority under this bill that actually certifies that tobacco is a responsible product. Isn't that an ironic thing? This bill is, in my opinion, a marketing allocation bill more than it is a regulation bill. The FDA does not have the resources to do this new responsibility. The FDA is not the tobacco police. The FDA should not be responsible for going into every convenience store and grocery store and tobacco shop in America making sure that the tobacco products are sold exactly as required." WHAT ABOUT THE MASSIVE SCIENTIFIC FRAUD THAT THE PROPONENTS OF THIS FILTHY BILL HAVE COMMITTED? The dirty little whore snivels, "I do agree that cigarettes are bad for people's health. I have never smoked a cigarette. I don't allow smoking in my office. I don't take any kind of campaign funds from tobacco companies. So I do practice what I preach, Madam Speaker, but I do not believe that this bill addresses the underlying problem in a satisfactory way."

Mr. BUYER of Indiana, p. H7570: "As we discuss H.R. 1108, the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act, the question before the House is not whether we want to decrease youth smoking as the bill is purported to do. The question is, after years of headlines and alarming stories about the FDA's failure to protect our Nation's food and drug supplies, do we in Congress believe that the FDA is in a place to take on a multi-billion dollar tobacco industry?" You corrupt Congressmaggot, don't blather about the power of the tobacco industry when YOU have been funding systematic scientific fraud for the anti-smokers, with billions of our tax dollars, for the last six decades!

Mr. COBLE, of North Carolina, p. H7572: "Let's be candid, Madam Speaker; should the FDA spend its time regulating tobacco on the farm and in manufacturing facilities, despite warnings on cigarette labels which alert consumers to their danger, or should it focus on the core mission of ensuring the safety and soundness of our food, drugs and cosmetics? I also have concerns with the impact this legislation would have upon tobacco manufacturers and their employees. These companies employ many hardworking, diligent working North Carolinians, and I believe the FDA regulation of tobacco would negatively affect these manufacturing jobs." Then why did you let the anti-smokers get away with scientific fraud, you crocodile tear-gushing phony! Mr. SHULER, of North Carolina: "Madam Speaker, I rise in strong opposition of this legislation. I don't smoke, and I never have. I'm a father of two small children. You won't find a bigger opponent of tobacco use in this Congress... The FDA is dangerously overworked." WHAT ABOUT THE SCIENTIFIC FRAUD?!

Mr. BLACKBURN of Tennessee, p. H7573: "Madam Speaker, I rise today in opposition to the bill. And I will tell you, I have great respect for the chairman and the author of the bill, but I respectfully disagree with them on this issue. I've also served as an active volunteer with the Lung Association and with the Cancer Society and have worked diligently to stop teen smoking, but I disagree with the approach that is being taken here today. Rather than forcing the ill-equipped FDA to regulate tobacco products, Congress should strengthen existing programs to prevent illegal tobacco use." You filthy whore, those corrupt organizations are directly responsible for the massive scientific fraud! (Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act, July 30, 2008.)

Speech of Ms. FOXX, of North Carolina, July 30, 2008: "Finally, this legislation would have little impact on overall tobacco use. If this bill is enacted, the Congressional Budget Office has estimated that smoking by adults would decline only by 2 percent after 10 years. This marginal reduction does not warrant this legislation's significant intrusion on free speech rights and expansion of government-run regulatory bureaucracy. Therefore, I strongly oppose this bill and urge my colleagues to vote against it." So, this traitor thinks that wiping out tobacco use would be a good thing. Better that we should wipe out the corrupt, lying United States Congress!

July 30, 2008 Vote on HR-1108, the identical bill in the House:
