Due to some circumstances, I won’t be able to make my annual pilgrimage to my great-grandfather’s and namesakes’ grave this Memorial Day. A superabundance of relatives leaves me bereft of guilt. Somebody will attend my family’s spirits this day. At some point in the future, this may no longer be true, but by then I will be one of the spirits being attended to, most likely.

My grandfather performed an illegal stomach surgery under sniper fire during World War Two, saving the lives of two young men who were bleeding to death internally due to gunshot wounds. I say illegal surgery because doctors weren’t supposed to perform such surgeries in the field. One of the men was a German soldier, a Nazi, I suppose. The Army gave him a Silver Star for it. It was an action you either gave a medal for or a court-martial. They should have given him the Congressional Medal of Honor for it. Here is the story, told through the eyes of one of the assistants. I told an acquaintance about this once, and he went through the usual brainwashed bullshit about the Germans deserving to die. I would not associate with this person, but I forgive his ignorance now. Propaganda is a powerful tool. I don’t feel the need to explain or justify, the actions speak for itself. Doctors used to take an oath.  Now they harvest aborted baby organ parts for pin money. What the hell happened?

I haven’t posted anything in a while, though I have been reading the news somewhat.  Here are some random impressions about events and people.

Ann Coulter-political columnist, writer, and general media personality. She seems to have adopted Ron Paul’s brand on non-interventionism. This is a positive sign. At crunch time, though, when the real damage was being done, she was a straight-up Neocon. Ultimately, being Irish American and descended from coal miners, I can’t get past the fact her father was a Pinkerton detective. I am somewhat sympathetic to her, and genuinely think she is treated infamously by the Hard Leftists. Just not sure she is not playing some deep game. She endorsed Hillary once, though I can’t say I voted for Romney. I was sort of a Ron Paul Bro’ (the smarter and earlier version of the Bernie Bro’.) Mittens treated Ron badly. It came out Ron Paul made a side deal with the GOP in which he wouldn’t run Third Party if they let him in the debates. Not quite honest with his supporters, though he did pave a way for Trump. Ironic really, since Ron Paul was a Never Trumper. Ironic really. I give Dr. Paul a pass because he was supporting his son, he of the odd hair piece who I am actually starting to like, Rand Paul. “A poor thing, but my own”, as they say. Rand may eventually be President, though. I would vote for him, though I do think Trump will be a two termer.

Kim Dot.Com-the immigrant to New Zealand from West Germany seems like someone who sprang from the fevered pitches of my nightmares, or like the German kid from The Simpsons. He says he has some info about the Seth Rich murder. Seth Rich is destined for greatness on The Clinton Death List. Lyndon Johnson went along with whacking JFK in broad daylight while he was sitting by his wife with a Senator in the same car. The Democrats play rough. Seth should have been swept under the rug better, but Hillary made two mistakes-First, she lost the election. Nothing succeeds like success, and nothing fails like failure. It is in the vested interest of the Democrat Party and possible presidential contenders in 2020 to destroy Clinton and her machine, but as surgically as possible. Seth Rich might be the best way to accomplish this. Hillary doesn’t have the juice to kill this investigation anymore, and the nature of political murder is the number of degrees of association must be limited. In other words, not too many buffers between the decider and the shooter.

Hillary’s second mistake was in blaming Russia too enthusiastically for her failure as a candidate. Her lackluster support of Jill Stein’s recount effort indicated her voter fraud was probably massive, and she didn’t want the records examined too in-depthly. Blaming Russia for the dump to Wikileaks made exposing Seth Rich’s role in all this more of a necessity for the GOP. Seth Rich debunks the Russian story.

(About Russian Intervention-aside for the fact the USA has been messing with Russian and Ukrainian elections, I assume the Russians did meddle, based on this: Every other foreign country that mattered meddled. Mexico meddled. Carlos Slim bought New York Times and meddled. The nation of Amazon bought the Washington Post and meddled. The Pope took a tour of the USA and meddled as head of the tiny and heavily fortressed nation called The Vatican City. China meddled with money, at the very least. Israel meddled. EU meddled. I mean, Russia must have done something, just nobody knows what.  Who dumped the emails to Wikileaks? Seth Rich.)

I am really starting to resent the Democrat Party Rulers. I should be a Democrat. My whole family used to be Democrat. We are not real Republicans, though many of us vote that way now. The Republicans are bogged down in similar quagmires. Seth Rich wore strange but patriotic clothing, and wrapped his beer bottles in patriotic bunting, but aside from this, the Internet Party idea of his is actually pretty good. The political disconnect now is people who actually know how to use the Internet and get their news from it, and everyone else. Seth Rich would not be the first murdered Jewish martyr to start a political movement.

Bioelectronics Corporation: Not getting in to the grassy knoll on this thing today, but may as well mention some things. BIEL needs to learn to value the phrase “Underpromise but Overdeliver“.  The supposed key to their success is to get a general pain approval from the FDA, rather than the specialized body parts approval up to now, which I believe consists of the ankle, knee, and eye area. If they get the back pain approval, then the theory is the FDA will grudgingly acknowledge that the Actipatch can be used for pain in general, huzzah, and this will make the Patch a new kind of safe Ibuprofen.

This hinges, I think, on the successful completion of an Oxford University study. God only knows when this will happen, or how long the post analysis will take them (Give the data to me, I will take vacation and get it done in a week, probably better than they could, given previous studies. The Oxford crowd is probably several cuts above the previous studies though, in which they could not make an accurate chart. I made some charts to compensate, and I notice BIEL seems to be using my chart format now. Smart move. This still does not explain to my satisfaction how BIEL got two approvals and no significant traction. They seemed as unprepared for it as their shareholders. Not good.)

BIEL marketing is in general pretty lame. Nobody cares about how it works, just will it help my booboo. They should get a partner or sell out. This isn’t a hobby, get in the game.

For instance, they got an order from TESCO. Genuinely big news, but it must be an insignificant amount. How do I know? BIEL issues a press release when they sign a new distributor in Guatemala (not joking). I think $19.99, the cost of an Actipatch, is several times the average yearly income there. If TESCO bought a million units, the share price would reflect. It does not.

Having said all that, BIEL has behaved with great tenacity against what seemed like insurmountable odds. They should not be in this situation. They have been treated unfairly by the FDA, and have long been under seige by some really vicious predatory vultures, people who short  sub-penny startups into oblivion and then buy the best assets on a firesale. One of them is a moderator on the BIEL IHUB board. He actually snitched to the SEC about them and brags about it, and also is trying to get the FDA to reverse its recent approvals.  I never want to know its home address.

The Oxford journal Rheumatology published the results of a study conducted to measure how effective the Bioelectronics Company’s Actipatch was in treating chronic osteoarthritis pain in the human knee today. The date says December 24th was the online publishing date. This may have been for subscribers. Bioelectronics announced it today, but the results have been known, mainly, for a while. The significance of this is a reputable, peer reviewed journal published the results in a nice layout with charts and references. This paper was already mainly priced in to the stock.

The study compared two groups, those who used the Actipatch (a device which uses PEMF (pulsed electromagnetic fields) to a placebo using group. They monitored a couple of tests, such as quality of life and increase or decrease of “NSAIDS” (non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs).

The paper can be found here.

The results were quite stunning, really, though I say this without access to the raw data tables. I like to crunch my own numbers.

Roughly, 20% improvement in pain relief for Patch users, 2 to 3 % improvement for Placebo. The chart below tells the tale.

Fig. 2

Also gauged was the use of NSAIDS in the Actipatch versus Placebo groups. This is important, so this is what I am focusing on, since this is where this study could possibly use some improvement. I pasted Table 3 from the paper at the bottom for illustration.

I read this table as stating at the end of a month, 46% of Patch users were using NSAIDS/analgesics as opposed to 90% of placebo users. So far so good, and the Patch could be approved by the FDA on the strength of this alone.  The FDA has approved on less, statistically.

However, the second part of the table could have been interpreted better in the footnote.

10% of placebo group started using NSAIDS/analgesics, while 0% of Patch users started taking drugs after a month.

However, if you were using drugs and had the Patch, it looks like 26% stopped using, while 23% of placebo users stopped. This is not very statistically significant. I get 23% by subtracting 3 from 10 and dividing by 30. So only 7 of the Placebo users actually stopped taking drugs. This is a statistical tie, and this is the part of the study I think could be fine tuned.

Liver and kidney damage combined with drug addiction is lethal, and there is a real need for a treatment which decreases these, especially in combination.

From the paper:

“Another interesting aspect of the interaction between electromagnetic fields and pain is related to opioid function; it has been demonstrated in mice that the induction of analgesia by electromagnetic exposure was equivalent to a moderate dose of morphine [32]. ”

So, instead of a study which treats drug use in a Boolean way (that is, you are either using pain killer drugs or not), there needs to be a study for tapering off using the Patch versus the placebo. If people use lower doses of drugs, odds of addiction, kidney, and liver damage are decreased. A primary benefit of the Actipatch is it will help people lower the dose. They might still be taking NSAIDS/analgesic drugs, but will just require less of them.

The patients in this study using the Patch and NSAIDS/analgesics (fully prescribed amounts) might have been been able to use a lower dose, but the study does not capture this.

I do not want to seem like a negative Nelly. The study was tremendous. I am simply pointing out that big selling point of the Patch is underexplored here. This is a not a comment on the pending FDA approval, which should occur, rather an observation about the study. Dr. Bagnato talks about further studies going directly against pain drugs with the Patch. “Tapering off” Placebo versus Actipatch, should be a part of this study.

*This blog concerns itself with topics including drug trafficking throughout the world.

How many people have you personally known who have died of terrorism as opposed to people who have overdosed, either dying or sustaining liver, kidney, or addiction problems? The magnitude of the problem is huge, and the Drug War is used as an excuse to take away our civil liberties and perpetrate a flawed foreign policy. Americans are not the only victims of the Drug War. Whether coincidentally or not, USA government policy works in a contradictory fashion. The Taliban had eliminated poppy cultivation in Afghanistan, but the USA and Britain opened that market back up again. A lot of people are dying from heroin addiction, and it is Satanic, not a word I use lightly.

A lot of people get hooked, innocently enough, by our own Medical establishment, which is terminally ignorant, seemingly, of the nature of the addictive personality. The end results is people move from prescribed drugs to street drugs, a self-fueling prophecy.

There used to be a blogger who got shut down who said the Queen of England regarded heroin addicts as annuities. Certainly, every President of the USA has been related to her, including Obama on the American side. The FDA needs to approve alternative remedies to drugs. The Patch has no side effects of note, but drugs are killing people. The benefits of FDA approval for the Actipatch outweigh the minimal risk.

Table 3

Changes in intake of NSAIDs/analgesics

NSAID/analgesic intake PEMF (n = 30) Placebo (n = 30)
Subject’s daily drug intake at 1 months
    NSAIDs, n (%) 6 (20) 12 (40)
    Analgesics, n (%) 8 (26) 15 (50)
Changes in drug intake at 1 month follow-up
    Started NSAIDs/ analgesics, n (%) – (0) 3 (10)
    Stopped NSAIDs/ analgesics, n (%) 8 (26) 10 (33)
  • At the end of the trial, 46% subjects from the PEMF group and 90% patients from the placebo group were under treatment with NSAIDs/analgesics. In the PEMF group, 26% (n = 8) stopped the pharmacological therapy compared with baseline, whereas in the placebo group 10% (n = 3) started a new therapy with NSAIDs/analgesics and one patient stopped previous treatment. PEMF: pulsed electromagnetic fields.
