Despite government’s assurance that water quality in Flint, Michigan, is improving, wary residents distrust both their tap water and the environmental bureaucrats who caused the crisis.
Psych meds for kids at gunpoint will no longer be tolerated, at least in one state. A powerful new law to protect children from coercive psychiatric screening and drugging was approved last year by the state of New Mexico. And now, advocates hope to provide similar protections for kids, families, and parental rights across the remaining 49 states. As Big Pharma and the Obama administration push hard to unconstitutionally expand mandatory “mental health” screening, tracking, and treatment for children nationwide, health-freedom supporters say state laws such as New Mexico's could offer much-needed protection in the years ahead. And progress is already being made.

Despite intense scrutiny following the Veterans Affairs wait-time scandal that was exposed two years ago, an investigation by the Department of Veterans Affairs Inspector General reveals not much has changed at the VA. The investigation uncovered evidence of fraud and regulatory violations related to scheduling issues at 51 VA medical facilities, USA Today reports, but despite the findings, no corrective action has been recommended. Unfortunately, that information is just about the extent of what has been revealed from the investigation. According to USA Today, the investigation, which reviewed 73 medical facilities, was completed in December, yet months later, no reports have been publicly released.
According to a report from the Government Accountability Office, the Obama administration is taking a very lax approach to identifying possible ObamaCare fraud.
The next time you visit your doctor, be careful how you respond to his questions, or you may just be branded “mentally ill” and subjected to “treatment.” That is because a panel advising the Obama administration, in partnership with Big Psychiatry, wants to make doctors subject all American adults and children over age 12 to screening for alleged “mental health” disorders — particularly depression.
ObamaCare, supposedly designed to protect Americans from big insurance companies and their denial of costly care, has itself led to larger healthcare conglomerates and rationing of care.
Svante Myrick, mayor of Ithaca, New York, has proposed a controversial plan to open up a supervised facility in which heroin users can “safely” use heroin.
