EXCLUSIVE: L.I. woman says psych ward doctors believed she was delusional for insisting Obama follows her on Twitter

BY NEW YORK DAILY NEWS    Monday, March 23, 2015


A Long Island woman’s insistence that President Obama follows her on Twitter made doctors at the Harlem Hospital psych ward think she was delusional and suffering from bipolar disorder — but she was actually telling the truth, a lawsuit charges.

Kam Brock’s frightening eight-day “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” ordeal at the mental facility included forced injections of powerful sedatives and demands she down doses of lithium, medical records obtained through her suit filed in Manhattan Federal Court show.

They also indicate that doctors didn’t believe the leader of the free world followed her on Twitter — though @BarackObama follows over 640,000 accounts, including hers. They were also skeptical she worked at a bank, records show.

Psychiatric Hospital cited for fraud

An audit released Wednesday from the state controller’s office found payroll control deficiencies at San Bernardino County’s Patton State Hospital that led to hundreds of thousands of dollars in false, fraudulent payments to hospital audit_herostaff.

Patton is a 1,287-bed inpatient hospital run by the California Department of State Hospitals that offers full-time psychiatric care for the severely mentally ill either ordered there by a criminal court or civilly committed. It is one of just five state psychiatric hospitals and the only one in Southern California east of Los Angeles.

“Our limited review identified material weaknesses in internal control over the DSH-Patton payroll process that leave DSH Patton at risk of additional fraudulent or erroneous payments if not mitigated,” the audit’s review report said.

The review found that one incident of fraud DSH had previously reported, a scheme involving four former employees, cost more than $800,000 in false payments.

Department of State Hospitals spokesman Ralph Montano said in an email that the case involving the employees was referred to the San Bernardino County District Attorney.

Another disclosed fraud case led to more than $100,000 in fraudulent payments, the audit said.

Army Admits Fort Hood Shooter Was on Psychiatric Drugs

Connection between violence and SSRI medication emerges yet again

Info Wars – April 3, 2014

By Paul Joseph Watson & Alex Joneshttp://www.cchrint.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/army_pills-a.jpg

Lt. Gen. Mark A. Milley acknowledged that Fort Hood gunman Ivan Lopez was taking psychiatric medication before the shooting, underscoring yet again the clear and consistent connection between mass shooting incidents and SSRI drugs.

“Was he on any sort of medications….SSRI’s, anti-depressants, anything of that nature,” a reporter asked Milley, to which the General responded, “He was on medications that’s correct.”

In a subsequent report, officials also admitted that Lopez had been prescribed Ambien, a sleeping pill associated with accidents and aggressive outbursts.

34-year-old Lopez, who shot dead three colleagues and injured 16 others before turning the gun on himself, returned from Iraq suffering from “mental problems,” according to officials.

The obvious link between psychiatric drugs and violent outbursts is a common theme that crops up in almost every mass shooting incident, yet the media is routinely loathe to make the connection.

After it emerged that Washington Navy Yard shooter Aaron Alexis “had been treated…. by the Veterans Administration for his mental problems,” the press showed little interest in discovering what drugs Alexis had been taking. The only medication currently offered by the VA for mental problems are SSRI drugs.

Staff Sgt. Robert Bales was also taking anti-depressant drugs when he massacred 16 Afghan civilians in 2012. SSRI medication, which is known to cause violent outbursts, is routinely used to treat PTSD, which goes some way to explain why there are so many stories about both active duty and returning troops carrying out acts of inexplicable violence on a regular basis.

Despite it being reported that prescription drugs were found in the apartment of ‘Batman’ shooter James Holmes days after the Aurora massacre, it took nine months to find out exactly what those drugs were. Like Columbine killer Eric Harris, Holmes had been taking Zoloft, another SSRI drug linked with violent outbursts.

As the website SSRI Stories profusely documents, there are literally hundreds of examples of mass shootings, murders and other violent episodes that have been committed by individuals on psychiatric drugs over the past three decades. The number of cases is staggering, but the media has completely failed to generate a national conversation about the issue due to its obsession with exploiting mass shootings to demonize the second amendment.

Pharmaceutical giants who produce drugs like Zoloft, Prozac and Paxil spend around $2.4 billion dollars a year on direct-to-consumer television advertising every year. By running negative stories about prescription drugs, networks risk losing tens of millions of dollars in ad revenue, which is undoubtedly one of the primary reasons why the connection is habitually downplayed or ignored entirely.

Psychiatry & Child Protective Services: Abducting and Drugging Children

By Kelly Patricia O’Meara
March 18, 2014

If, as the saying goes, “a society is measured by how it treats its weakest members,” then the high profile cases of psychiatric strong-arming, drugging, and abduction of 11-year old, Ariana Godboldo and 15-year old Justina Pelletier, paints a frightening picture of how far this nation has fallen.

    “CCHR is calling on the Michigan State Attorney General to investigate DFS’s actions as well as the treating psychiatrists and those that claimed a mother legally refusing to give a child a dangerous antipsychotic drug—the subject of hundreds of lawsuits because of its side effects—was medical neglect.”

“CCHR is calling on the Michigan State Attorney General to investigate DFS’s actions as well as the treating psychiatrists and those that claimed a mother legally refusing to give a child a dangerous antipsychotic drug—the subject of hundreds of lawsuits because of its side effects—was medical neglect.”

The Godboldo and Pelletier families are recent examples of the state-sponsored neglect, abuse and assault that America’s children are subjected to when power is delegated to the psychiatric community, whose medical and scientific expertise begins, and ends, at subjective diagnosis.

Both chilling, real-life scenarios call into question why, on a state and federal level, these obvious violations of basic civil and human rights have failed to attract legislative and judicial investigation and disciplinary—if not criminal—action.

As a signatory of the 1984 United Nations Convention Against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment, one naturally would assume the United States is committed to insuring basic human rights are protected, especially those of its children.

Help Justina Pelletier: A Victim of Psychiatric False Imprisonment and Human Rights Abuse

By CCHR International
March 5, 2014

Fifteen-year-old Justina Pelletier has been held against her family’s wishes in a psychiatric ward inside Boston Children’s Hospital (BCH) for more than a year and treated for a “disorder” that psychiatrists can’t even prove exists. She’s gone from being a fun-loving teen to being immobilized in a wheel chair. She needs your help. Here are the facts and what you can do:

For several years, Justina was treated at Tufts Medical Center for a rare genetic condition called mitochondrial disease. It affects how cells produce energy and can lead to further medical problems with the brain, intestines, muscles and heart. (One of her sisters has also been diagnosed and treated for it.) Yet Justina was able to live a normal life.

At 14, however, she began having trouble walking and swallowing and then developed flu symptoms. Dr. Mark Korson, her primary specialist at Tufts, referred her to gastroenterologist, Dr. Alejandro Flores, who had treated Justina for 18 months and recently moved his practice from Tufts to BCH.
