My day began with Alex Jones ranting and
raving - trying to debunk the female caller on the Power Hour video with
the story of strange goings on in New York having to do with deliveries
for Homescam Security. The video has gone viral and people are
My intent was to gather up all the
information I have to give to Alex Jones showing why we should be very
concerned about that woman's phone call - and why there is a hell of a
lot to worry about because the people who are running our government at
the administrative level are
not "our friends". I started out by rounding up information about
Dr. John Agwunobi.
I first took notice of John Agwunobi
when he was testifying to the Senate in a hearing in about 2005. I
was half paying attention up until the point when Senator Spector
started questioning Agwunobi on his written statement where he wrote
something about "not showing good faith" and Spector wanted to know what he
meant. As I recall, Spector said that the Congress had allocated
about $4 billion towards national planning for a pandemic. The
request had apparently been for an amount in the vicinity of $15
billion. Back then, a billion was a lot of money. $4 billion
was a stunning amount for "planning" and for a federal employee to tell
the Congress that they weren't showing good faith struck a sour note.
So I started watching the hearing. As I listened to the questions
and Agwunobi's answers following, I thought to myself - this guy -
Agwunobi is not a doctor. I don't know what's going on - they're
calling him a doctor but for several of the questions, Dr. Julie
Gerberding of the CDC had to answer for Agwunobi. So I did a
search on Agwunobi.
It turns out that Agwunobi was in
Florida employed by the Public Health Department when the anthrax
attacks occurred. The day after his appointment, he was called
upon to investigate the first anthrax attack. Recall that Florida
was already in a state of emergency prior to 9-11. That's mighty
coincidental - although circumstantial. Agwunobi is from Nigeria
and he allegedly earned his degree in Public Health from Johns-Hopkins.
There are other things about Agwunobi that didn't sit well with me - but
after doing some reading, I thought I'd get back to him sometime in the
future to write a webpage about him. Then Dr. Elias Zerhouni came
into my sights after watching the National Governor's Association
conference and hearing a presentation on the eHealth Initiative.
After watching that program and doing audio recordings of it, I wrote this webpage:
IBM and Dr. Mengele - Together Again
In researching the telemedicine part of
it, I found Dr. Elias Zerhouni. Dr. Zerhouni was the Director of
the National Institutes of Health. Prior to that, he was at
Johns-Hopkins University working on a telemedicine system to outsource
radiology - putting American radiologists out of business - same as
American software professionals and engineers. Dr. Zerhouni was
from Algeria - immigrated here in the 1980's.
At this point, I'm not liking seeing
all of the foreign names in our public health system - many of whom seem
to be connected to Johns-Hopkins and/or the Public Health System. I did one search and got a
directory of employees (and contractors ) for the CDC or CMS - can't recall which
- but it was pages and pages of foreign names - mostly from India and Muslim
countries (lots of Ahmed's).
At this point, I'm at the OH SHIT!
stage. The traitors running our government have not only replaced
American software professionals and engineers with imported visa workers,
they've imported people to work in our national laboratories - working
with the world's deadliest substances. Hey-Soos!
After doing the story on the eHealth
Initiative, I started researching the initiative for nationalized
medical records.. which led me to the global information
infrastructure... which led me to ultimately do the story on the Human
Genome Project. You'll notice there is a section in the Human
Genome Project document that I called "Pandora's Box". The
Genome Data Base was originally kept at Johns-Hopkins and they made the
genome information public - for anybody to download and use.
At this point, I'm at the HOLY SHIT! stage.
Nationalized Medical Records
Human Genome Project
You'll also notice in the Human Genome Project document that I found
other information on the telemedicine system - as well as the Texas TMAP
project - and how Ely Lilly was sued and how the game plan for the U.S.
Health Care System is to refocus the system on "wellness" - using
doctors only for triage - sick ones here, healthy ones here; and
to use substandard providers for the sick ones (Nurse Practitioners and
Physicians Assistants) who will use a computerized decision support
system TO MAKE MEDICAL DECISIONS! OMG!
And do you remember the contaminated
Heparin that killed at least 60 people? A friend of mine who
writes the Job Destruction Newsletter wrote this story:
"Remember all the news coverage
about the deaths caused by a tainted anti-coagulant drug called
heparin? There were lots of news stories, but I'll bet most of you
forgot about it. I know I did. Perhaps the news about heparin
stopped getting national coverage because of who got caught, and who
got away. A scandal involving an Indian CEO and at least several
Indian employees has resulted in indictments in North Carolina.
Dushyant Patel, who is the CEO of AM2PAT, masterminded the
fraudulent scheme that involved shipping tainted syringes of
heparin. A criminal case was launched last spring after the
falsified reports were discovered.
The plant manager,
Patel, and the quality control director,
Ravindra Sharma, were
sentenced to 4.5 years in federal prison Monday for their
participation. The Indian men, in the United States legally with
work visas, said they feared they would lose their jobs and their
U.S. residencies if they didn't go along with Dushyant Patel's
scheme. Dushyant Patel won't be serving any prison time unless India
finds him and allows extradition. That's because Patel fled the U.S.
before he could be arrested. Supposedly Interpol is involved in what
is described as an international manhunt to find Patel. I have read
dozens of news reports and a press release from the Dept. of
Justice, but haven't seen a single explanation about how Patel
escaped from the U.S. The silence on Patel looks like a cover-up by
several branches of our government that have bungled the AM2PAT case
for a very long time."

Staff Radiologist for Meridian
Regional Imaging. A longstanding member of the Chicago radiological
community, Dr. Patel performed his diagnostic radiology residency at
Michael Reese Hospital, followed by a fellowship in Neuroradiology
at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. After holding several academic
appointments at both the University of Chicago, and the University
of Illinois, Dr. Patel became Medical Director at the Advanced
Medical Imaging Center, one of the first ourpatient imaging centers
offering MRI in Chicago, Illinois. Dr. Patel received his CAQ in
Neuroradiology in 1995, and established himself as an American
College of Radiology Fellow in 1996. Dr. Patel is a Board Certified
by the American Board of Radiology.

And when I was checking links for the
Job Destruction Newsletter (not all are active anymore), I found this
story from Australia. Apparently we are exporting the previously
imported foreign fake medical professionals:
US Doc Faces Charges in 13 Aussie Deaths
(Newser) – An American doctor faces
charges of negligence and manslaughter in 13 patient deaths in an
Australian hospital, AP reports.

The "unacceptable level of care" on Patel's watch contributed
directly to patient deaths, according to government documents. In
one case, a woman's surgical wound fell apart, exposing her
intestines. In another, a major blood vessel to a man's heart was
cut during a basic procedure, causing him to bleed to death,
according to authorities. Patel was extradited from his Oregon home
for the hearings in Australia.

And of course, we have the recent story
of an American (allegedly) pharmaceutical company manufacturing in
Austria that sent out vaccine to three neighboring countries that was
contaminated with Bird Flu. Fortunately the Czechs must be on to
this global game of Russian Roulette with health care so only a few
ferrets died and no people:
Baxter Sent Bird Flu Virus to European Labs by Error
Feb. 24 (Bloomberg) -- Baxter
International Inc. in Austria unintentionally contaminated samples
with the bird flu virus that were used in laboratories in three
neighboring countries, raising concern about the potential spread of
the deadly disease.
The contamination was discovered when ferrets at a laboratory in the
Czech Republic died after being inoculated with vaccine made from
the samples early this month. The material came from Deerfield,
Illinois-based Baxter, which reported the incident to the Austrian
Ministry of Health, Sigrid Rosenberger, a ministry spokeswoman, said
today in a telephone interview.
“This was infected with a bird flu virus,” Rosenberger said. “There
were some people from the company who handled it.”
The material was intended for use in laboratories, and none of the
lab workers have fallen ill. The incident is drawing scrutiny over
the safety of research using the H5N1 bird flu strain that’s killed
more than three-fifths of the people known to have caught the bug
worldwide. Some scientists say the 1977 Russian flu, the most recent
global outbreak, began when a virus escaped from a laboratory.
The virus material was supposed to contain a seasonal flu virus and
was contaminated after “human error,” said Christopher Bona, a
spokesman for Baxter, in a telephone interview.
And just the other day when I was
gathering some info for my series - "War in the Context of Everything
else", I was writing about a hearing I watched on C-Span at the
time it was broadcast so I went out and found the information on it:
On March 7, 2007, the U.S. Senate
Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions held a hearing
titled, "Strengthening American Competitiveness for the 21st Century
in which Bill Gates was the only witness. He was there to testify
that the U.S. system of issuing visas for imported workers was
hampering the ability of U.S. corporations to "compete" and that the
visa system should be eliminated and corporations should be allowed
an unlimited ability to import human commodities.
The following is an excerpt from the
transcript of that hearing. Both the
transcript and the video of the hearing are available on the
Questioner is Senator Allard:
Let me quickly go into another subject. Mary Robinson, President of
Ireland, head of the World Health Organization, met with a number of
us. She's very concerned about just this brain drain to the United
States, particularly in health, in health professions. She pointed
out that the flow, for example, at a time when we have eight or nine
applications for every nursing slot in my State of Massachusetts at
community colleges, we can get one applicant that can take it,
because we don't have the training facilities, we don't have the
professors for the training of nurses. And we're considering an
amendment on the floor now on the homeland security bill to increase
the number of nurses on this.
Now, here are some of the
countries. Nigeria, we have 2,500 doctors here from Nigeria, and
8,900 nurses. From South Africa, we have 1,950 doctors, 877 nurses.
In Kenya, HIV rate, 15 percent, 865 doctors, 765 nurses. Ghana, HIV
rate, doctors, 850, 2,100 nurses on this. Her point was,
they--many of these countries around the world, so many of these
doctors and the nurses, health professionals that are so vital, in
terms-- trying to deal with the challenges of healthcare, are here
in the United States--are coming to the United States, working in
the United States. This is costing these countries--they're training
these people. It's an outlay for--training them. How do we balance
this, versus what you've said about, sort of, the openendedness, in
terms of having skilled people be able to come into the United
States? What's really the--where do we--where do we really begin to
draw the line? When do we say, ``Well, we're going to try and invest
more to develop more opportunities for Americans to become nurses,
Americans to become the doctors of''--we have qualified people that
don't get into our great medical schools or to our nursing. But
what's the balance in there?
At this point, I'm at OMFG!
So... after calming myself by watching a
video of D.U.M.B.s
Deep Underground Military Bases, I'm now ready to document what
precipitated this Dear Diary rant:
Agwunobi and Community Health Centers
WINTER GARDEN, Fla
. . Florida Department of Health Secretary Dr. John O. Agwunobi
visited Community Health Center's Winter Garden Family and
Children's Health Center on Friday, August 1, 2003. The purpose of
Dr. Agwunobi's visit was to talk with patients about issues of
access to medical services and to physicians about the impact of the
malpractice crisis. Dr. Agwonubi has been a supporter of the
State's health centers and was able to see first-hand the services
offered by Community Health Centers, Inc.
Community Health Centers, Inc. is a
private, nonprofit organization that provides primary and preventive
medical, dental and pharmaceutical services at eight practice
locations throughout Central Florida. These include the Apopka
Family and Children's Health Centers, Pine Hills Family Health
Center, Winter Garden Family and Children's Health Centers,
Eatonville Family Health Center, South Lake Family Health Center and
Leesburg Community Health Center. During 2003, over 33,000 patients
received care at Community Health Center sites. CHC provides care to
everyone who walks in their doors - insured, uninsured and
underinsured alike; providing services on a sliding fee scale at all
centers, accepting Medicaid and Medicare patients, and accepting
over 80 private insurance and managed care plans.
Agwunobi Goes to Walmart
June 10, 2008 | WASHINGTON—In the
realm of health IT, Wal-Mart Stores is aiming far beyond its
participation in the Dossia personal health records (PHR) project.
The Bentonville, Ark., retail behemoth seeks to become a catalyst
for interoperability by paying attention to customer convenience.
Wal-Mart already has made
clear its intent to open 400 in-store health clinics by 2010, up
from the current 70. “These clinics are like Trojan horses,”
John Agwunobi, president of Wal-Mart health and wellness business
unit, said here Monday in a keynote address to the midyear
Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS)
He said an electronic health record
(EHR) not only will link all 400 clinics, it will serve as a main
source of data for the Dossia PHR for Wal-Mart’s 2 million U.S.
employees. “More importantly, our vision is that your electronic
health record will connect electronically with your own medical
home,” Agwunobi said at this small, focused meeting that is the
polar opposite of the mammoth wintertime HIMSS annual conference.
According to Agwunobi, 55 percent of patients who visit Wal-Mart
clinics lack health insurance. “This interaction with our clinic is
how they find medical homes,” he said.
Above all, health care must engage consumers, said Agwunobi, a
pediatrician who is a former assistant secretary in the Department
of Health and Human Services and an admiral in the U.S. Public
Health Service Commissioned Corps. “We think we can do that with the
personal health record,” he said.
Wal-Mart’s goal is to provide a “robust” PHR to its U.S. workforce
employees by 2010. “Our goal is also to make those 2 million
associates advocates for PHRs.”
Agwunobi argued that so many people in health IT focus on one piece
of technology in isolation and lose sight of larger goals. “So few
people really have a clear picture of what we’re trying to get to,”
He suggested that health IT professionals should understand that
they are doing more than simply installing an EHR, e-prescribing, or
back-office management system. “The true power is what it looks like
20 years from now, five, 10, 20 iterations later,” Agwunobi said.
And the conversation needs to include all stakeholders in health
care, not just health IT insiders. “One of the barriers is that we
talk amongst ourselves,” he told the HIMSS gathering. “I learned
from retail that the most important person is the customer, the
Agwunobi said he knew health care had some problems, but had no idea
how badly the system was broken until he took the Wal-Mart job last
September and saw how efficient a major retail operation could be.
Isn't that great? You can run to
the store and get a gallon of milk and a pap smear in a one-stop.
And an employee can get that nasty boil lanced during lunch hour.
Joking (?) aside, I have to assume that
regardless of whether or not his medical degree is fake, he surely has
had enough education to know what a Trojan Horse is. This does not
Referring back to the documentation I
did on the Human Genome Project, at the end of the paper, you will find
that I traced the links of a clinic in Northern Idaho that has a rather
disturbing history - and links that lead to the Robert Woods Johnson
Foundation all the way up to the World Health Organization.
Although I didn't say it directly, my point in including that was to
provide a trail for other researchers to follow that exposes the intent
behind the nationalized medical records, the clinics for poor people and
managed care plans. The intent is to integrate medical research
into the health care delivery system. YIKES! And the
nationalized Health IT system will allow them to select victims for
research without their even knowing about it. That truly is a
But I'm not done yet. I did a
search on 'Community Health Center' which is the corporation that
provides medical care for the uninsured in Florida.
They were listed on the Health and Human Services website as getting
federal money under the Recovery Act
Recovery Act (ARRA): Increased Demand for Services Community Health
Center Grants in Florida
Federal money for Health IT
Somehow I ended up zeroing in on a company by the name of B L Seamon
connected to the National Health Service Corp and found that they were
issued a sole source contract for $300 million also under the American
Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA):
B L Seamon - Sole Source Contract
Added: Apr 08, 2009 3:54 pm
The Health Resources and Services
Administration, Division of Procurement Management (DPM), intends to
negotiate on a sole source basis with B L Seamon Corporation, 9001
Edmonston Road, Suite 200, Greenbelt, MD 20770 to modify Contract
HHSH230200732008C entitled, "National Health Service Corps (NHSC)
Recruitment, Training, and Support Center (RTSC) Contract." The
purpose of the NHSC RTSC contract is to provide support to the NHSC
by assisting sites who wish to make application to the NHSC for
inclusion on the list of eligible NHSC service sites for NHSC
clinicians and matching those clinicians to NHSC approved vacancies
while considering program requirements and participant preferences
to maintain clinician retention.
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) provides
$300 million to the NHSC to support health professions educational
loan repayment and scholarship. A key component of the ARRA is the
creation and preservation of primary health care jobs through the
NHSC Loan Repayment Program. Through ARRA, the NHSC is required to
recruit and place more than 3,300 additional clinicians to serve and
provide primary health care services to our Nation's neediest
communities within an 18-month period. The bulk of these awards will
be made within the first 6-12 months. NHSC clinicians cannot be
matched to a site that is not an NHSC approved site or to a site
that does not have an approved vacancy. The NHSC maintains a single
"Job Opportunities List" which contains approved vacancies. Updates
to the vacancy list are provided to the NHSC by the contractor
through the NHSC RTSC contract (contract HHSH230200732008C). No new
loan repayment awards can be made without the vacancy management
services provided under the NHSC RTSC contract. By modifying the
contract to add services related to ARRA funded awards, clinicians
participating under both the core annual contract appropriations and
the ARRA appropriations can be matched to appropriate sites in time
to receive awards during the contract performance period, fulfilling
the intent of the ARRA.
As the prime contractor for the NHSC RTSC contract, B L Seamon
Corporation is the only source that can provide the required
services without substantial duplication of costs to the Government
that is not expected to be recovered through competition and without
unacceptable delays in the fulfilling the agency's requirements. The
NHSC RTSC contractor provides critical support to site approval,
vacancy management (adding vacancies to the list after approval,
eliminating vacancies after they have been filled), award process,
clinician placement and service monitoring. The first NHSC Loan
Repayment Program awards supported by the ARRA funds are due to be
made in May of 2009. Without this contract support, NHSC Loan
Repayment awards that provide clinicians to deliver primary health
services in communities of greatest need cannot be made. This
contract modification would provide the same level of critical
support, which current participants receive, for clinicians who are
supported by ARRA appropriations. The requested modification does
not change the nature of the activities provided by the current
contractor; rather, it simply increases the volume of services in
order to accommodate the additional 3300 ARRA funded clinicians. No
other source can provide the necessary services without substantial
duplication of costs and without unacceptable delays. Therefore, as
set forth in 41.U.S.C. 253(c) (1), as implemented by FAR Part
6.302-1, the statutory authority permitting other than full and open
competition is "only one responsible source and no other supplies or
services will satisfy agency requirements".
This is a notice of intent, not a request for competitive proposals.
Responsible sources may submit a capability statement, proposal, or
quotation, which shall be considered by the agency. The
Justification for Other than Full and Open Competition (JOFOC) will
be posted within 14 days after award of the contract modification.
Because any modification that results from this JOFOC will use ARRA
funds, an ARRA intent to negotiate will be posted prior to
negotiations of a resulting modification. The contact person for
this requirement is Michele McDermott, Contract Specialist, Division
of Procurement Management (DPM), Parklawn Building, Room 13A-19,
5600 Fishers Lane, Rockville, MD 20857-5600; phone number
301/443-1798; fax 301/443-5462
