Re-Importation of Pharmaceutical drugs/medicines back into USA at much lower prices was outlawed and banned by Obamacare Democrats and Tea Party Republicans -- here is how it all began -- and ended.

Nearly all my European friends who never lived in USA sent me emails often begging me to explain why they see on TV all the time (especially on TV in the years 2007-2010) older American senior citizens with placards protesting against better free or low price healthcare and medicines! They find it ass backwards in logic and masochistic and self destructive like self inflected gunshot wounds, on the general U.S. population.

From an Aug 2010 news release:

Koch Industries produces through Koch Membrane Systems a vast amount of the chemicals that go into all pharmaceutical products. They are essentially a feeder for Big Pharma. The Koch Institute at MIT also has a strategic partnership with Ortho-McNeil-Janssen Pharmaceuticals. Ortho-McNeil-Janssen is a subsidiary of Johnson and Johnson. During the health care debate, pharmaceutical interests made a deal with the Obama Administration that limited their givebacks in the bill, in a cozy exchange for stopping much larger intrusions on their industry, like reimportation of drugs from Canada or any foreign nation, or bulk purchasing to save money in Medicare. […] Americans for Prosperity organized hundreds of rallies against health care reform across the country. While that effort proved seemingly unsuccessful, the sweet Obama deal with the pharmaceutical corporations that help fund Koch Industries, held strong and firm in their favor. Much like with financial reform failures since the Crash of 2008, Koch and their offshoots pushed to kill the pharmaceutical reform bills from the outside, while working on the deep state inside, to secure plenty of exemptions to make the ultimate Obama reform still extremely profitable for the overall company.

KOCH INDUSTRIES has HUGE FINANCIAL STAKE in PHARMACEUTICALS & thus they BLOCK REIMPORTATION OF DRUGS back into USA at cheaper reasonable prices with their cunning lobbyists By David Dayen, Aug 2010

TEA PARTY origins start with Kochtopus/Big Pharma lobbyists to block U.S. Reimportation of Cheaper Pharmaceutical Drugs: Koch Industries produces through Koch Membrane Systems a vast amount of the chemicals that go into all pharmaceutical products. They are essentially a feeder for Big Pharma. The Koch Institute at MIT also has a strategic partnership with Ortho-McNeil-Janssen Pharmaceuticals. Ortho-McNeil-Janssen is a subsidiary of Johnson and Johnson. During the health care debate, pharmaceutical interests made a deal with the Obama Administration that limited their givebacks in the bill in exchange for stopping larger intrusions on their industry, like reimportation of drugs from Canada or bulk purchasing in Medicare. As Mayer notes in her story, Americans for Prosperity organized hundreds of rallies against health care reform across the country. While that effort proved seemingly unsuccessful, the deal with the pharmaceuticals that help fund Koch Industries held during the ObamaCare give-in. Much like with financial reform, Koch and their offshoots pushed to kill the bills from the outside, while working on the inside to secure just enough of an exemption to make the ultimate reform still profitable for the overall company.

from MOTHER JONES, Feb 2015 The deal Big Pharma cut during the legislative battle over Obamacare: The pharmaceutical companies agreed to support the law and accept about $80 billion in cost-cutting measures over the next decade, and the White House granted the industry lucrative concessions to protect its profit margins. These industry-favoring measures include provisions preventing the government from negotiating lower drug prices for Medicare and Medicaid and blocking Americans from importing cheaper prescription drugs from abroad. Those concessions were costly to taxpayers and consumers, but they were part of the grand bargain hammered out between the White House and Big Pharma. This accord ensured the industry would use its formidable lobbying clout to pass Obamacare—not destroy it.

from PRO PUBLICA, Feb 2017 -- As it readies for battle with President Trump over drug prices, the pharmaceutical industry is deploying economists and health care experts from the nation’s top universities. In scholarly articles, blogs and conferences, they lend their prestige to the lobbying blitz, without always disclosing their corporate ties, resulting in Big Pharma Quietly Enlists Leading Ivy League Professors to Justify $1,000-Per-Day Drugs

Most Americans haven’t seen what’s coming, the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), a devious many tentacled LOBBY feeding group. ALEC was co-founded by conservative activist Paul Weyrich, who also co-founded The Heritage Foundation. In 2012 ALEC was the subject of an Occupy movement protest, an Internal Revenue Service complaint by Common Cause, and calls for attorney general investigations in several states.

Nobel economist laureate Dixie Southerner JAMES BUCHANAN (foto above) has been recently discovered to be the intellectual linchpin of the Koch-funded attack on democratic institutions, argues Duke historian Nancy MacLean. Koch Brothers have long been major donors to Tea Party & George Mason U and University of VA coffers. In June 2017 MacLean published ‘Democracy in Chains: The Deep History of the Radical Right's Stealth Plan for America’. It focused on the southerner Nobel winner James McGill Buchanan and his work in public choice theory, and on Charles Koch, also on George Mason University, and the libertarian movement in the U.S. She argued they have undertaken "a stealth bid to reverse-engineer all of America, at both the state and national levels back to the political economy and oligarchic governance of midcentury Virginia, minus the segregation." https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-09-04/meet-economist-behind-one-percents-stealth-takeover-america

A World of Slaves Is In Store for We The People, founded on the plantation imbred chauvinism of South Carolina's early 1800s patriarch John Calhoun, bolstered and bouyed by today's Koch Brothers billions along with the Democrat & Republican politicians and legislators BOTH owned by lobbies and/or puppeted under the powerful sway of domestic & foreign intelligence agencies, especially those of Israel & Saudi Arabia.

Most Americans haven’t seen what’s coming and as Stanley Kubrick coined, have their Eyes Wide Shut. (5 minute interview with Nancy MacLean, Phd, here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rMHPH96Z3ic )

At this very moment, the Kochs’ State Policy Network and the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), a devious many tentacled LOBBY feeding group that connects corporate agents to conservative lawmakers to produce legislation (laws especially lenient with Big PhRMA & Hospital Owner & Petroleum Chemical Industry operatives and their lobbyists), are involved in projects that the Trump-obsessed media hardly notices and a press & media which is tragically & foolishly blinded by Trump’s tweets, projects like pumping vast sums of money into state judicial races. Their aim is to stack the legal deck against Americans in ways that MacLean argues may have even bigger effects than Citizens United, the 2010 Supreme Court ruling which unleashed unlimited corporate spending on American politics and abetted in the blocking and banning of the Re-Importation of Pharmaceutical products back into the U.S. at cheaper prices. Their goal is to create a judiciary that will interpret the Constitution in favor of corporations and the wealthy in ways that Buchanan would have heartily approved.

MacLean notes that when the Kochs’ control of the GOP kicked into high gear after the financial crisis of 2007-08, many were so stunned by the “shock-and-awe” tactics of shutting down government, co-opting labor unions, and rolling back services that meet citizens’ basic necessities, that few realized that many leading the charge had been trained in economics at Virginia institutions, especially George Mason University. MacLean adds another dimension to her dystopian big picture, acquainting us with what has been overlooked in the oligarchial lobbyist's playbook. She observes, for example, that many liberals have missed the point of strategies like privatization. Efforts to “reform” public education and Social Security are not just about a preference for the private sector over the public sector, she argues. The goal of these strategies is to radically alter power relations, weakening pro-public forces and enhancing the lobbying power and commitment of the corporations that take over public services and resources, thus advancing the agenda of the 1% "plantation owners".

HISTORICAL BACKGROUND

SEPT 2009 Gallup Poll finds American adults 55 and older lean against healthcare reform

https://news.gallup.com/poll/122822/americans-sharply-divided-healthcare-reform.aspx

September 2009:

Borrowing tactics more familiar to protestors on the left, they’re pouring into the Washington area in hundreds of suddenly chartered buses, newly engaged grassroots activists who plan to march down Pennsylvania Avenue and voice their mounting displeasure with their government. Their issues are a hodgepodge, ranging from pro-war organizations to the bank and auto bailouts to the government’s push to overhaul the nation's health & pharmaceutical system to concerns about perceived erosion of First and Second Amendment rights.

Most of the Tea Party early members, many of them senior citizens, as they were protesting against a hodgepodge of things, ironically, they advocated against many things old retirees themselves needed.  Big Pharma desperately needed to manage the news flows regarding their products and politics and especially takeover 60+ year old citizens opinions, those pertaining to their enormous profit losing trend of reimporting US prescription drugs back into USA at 1/5th the cost, or at the least, only 1/2 the cost to Americans at home.  BIG PHARMA was against the wall.

When the U.S. intelligence agencies caught wind of this and similar movements birth, their agents in the Pacific Northwest (especially in Sacramento) first and then nationwide, working as a partner with Big Pharma, infiltrated the media releases and protest organizers of these old Re-Importation duffers and then from there the mainstream media helped along the growth and spread of the growing and mutating Tea Party.  It grew its own legs and went in many directions after that, just like BLACK LIVES MATTER, after they also were infiltrated quite early on, in the same manner.

Still today it is mostly banned to reimport the greatly reduced in price US drugs from nations we exported the same drugs to.  If you want, you can blame it on Russians and Putin too, why not, everybody is doing it, when the real culprits however are lobby owned Congresspersons and big money slaves who crave money and power at the expense of We the People

How the Pharma Lobby gave birth to the early Tea Party movement

There was once long ago a great feature investigative article on how the Pharma Lobby gave birth to the early Tea Party movement, with the goal of blocking re-importation of Big Pharma drugs back into the American nation at much reduced prices for consumers and taxpayers.  Sadly, it has been deleted from Google and all traces of the article have vanished (the now missing article also revealed the intelligence agency and media connections to the early Tea Party movement as it emerged out of anti-RE-IMPORATION public relations agencies and consultancy firms for Big PhRMA lobbies).


Mark Williams, a conservative radio talk show host from Sacramento who is vice chairman of Our Country Deserves Better PAC, a political action committee from Sacramento and the Pacific Northwest that is co-sponsoring the march, working hand in hand with Russo Marsh & Rogers (RM+R) public relations firm. The IRI (a domestic & international U.S. spying agency like the CIA for regime changes) which usually organizes rallies and protests in foreign nations, chaired by John McCain, has its hand in the IRI strategy of these protesters also.

Also paying for the earliest ever free Tea Party buses for protestors was Eustrix PR, run out of both northern Calif. and Upstate New York. https://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php/Eusatrix_Corporation

Tea Party arose in U.S. politics and media because the PhRMA lobby by misleading and abusing right wing retired Christian Republicans via the lobby's desperate bid to STOP re-importation of costly pharmaceuticals back into the U.S. from foreign markets at much much lower prices on the same products.  The Tea Party was only a ruse, with U.S. intel/deep state tacit and direct approval and assistance, and it failed at the ballot box. However, it 1000 percent succeeded in blocking reimportation of life sustaining medications in USA at reasonable costs to US consumers and patients and taxpayers.

Who has billions invested in this power and cash syndicate?? The Koch Brothers of the Wichita Kansas region, hundreds of billions of dollars rich from "cracking" petroleum into car fuel, deregulating the securities/derivatives market, and managing giant PhRMA pharmaceuticals by supplying nearly all the petrochemicals required by modern biochemistry industrialization, now own many US major city newspapers [Chicago and Los Angeles].

Koch Industries produces through Koch Membrane Systems a vast amount of the chemicals that go into all pharmaceutical products. They are essentially a feeder for Big Pharma. The Koch Institute at MIT also has a strategic partnership with Ortho-McNeil-Janssen Pharmaceuticals. Ortho-McNeil-Janssen is a subsidiary of Johnson and Johnson.

(2007) "Although it’s unclear what pharmaceuticals have to do with protecting the U.S. from terrorist attacks, it did not stop President Bush from naming Eli Lilly and Company’s (soon to be former) CEO Sidney Taurel as one of his Homeland Security Advisory Council members, and more recently, Bush appointed him to the senior trade advisory panel. Lilly’s ties to the Bush family are well-documented. But Lilly’s Red State Republican support extends well beyond the Bush family.

According to USA Today, since at least 1980, the Indianapolis-based insulin manufacturer has given at least 65% of its PAC contributions to Republicans, according to PoliticalMoneyLine, a non-partisan company that tracks campaign contributions. Lilly is a major donor, giving more than $50,000 in contributions during the 2006 election cycle, the fourth highest among corporate health care PACs, again, according to PoliticalMoneyLine.

But as The Wall Street Journal recently reported, for a variety of reasons, it’s beginning to look like the “GOP Is Losing Grip On Core Business Vote”, and that apparently includes Big Pharma as well. In spite of huge benefits the Republican party has handed to the pharmaceutical industry (like the provisions of the Medicare drug bill that prevent the agency from seeking competitive bids or the refusal to allow drugs to be re-imported from Canada), that did not help Republicans in the 2006 election, when voters switched Congressional majorities from Republican to Democrat.

Comments abound that if the big drug companies are now supporting Hillary Clinton, she sure has come a long way since she tried to implement healthcare reform, and that’s good news for Mrs. Clinton’s Presidential campaign.

This may be a victory for Mrs. Clinton, but is it a victory for the American voter? Clinton is decidedly centrist, which, according to some political analysts (like her husband) is what’s needed if she is to win some of the red states she needs to win the Presidency. To be sure, while that annoys the heck out some leftists within the Democratic party, if she wins the primary, they may have to support her in the absence of having any other alternative. Another negative is that she talks ad nauseam about her learning from the 1993 Health Care debacle, and that has made her unwilling to rock the establishment too much."

September 2009 alert

Saturday’s “Taxpayer March”– at which organizers expect anywhere from 20,000 to 200,000 people – as well as dozens of smaller marches around the country, will prove that the fledgling “Tea Party” movement is real, according to Mark Williams, a conservative radio talk show host from Sacramento who is vice chairman of Our Country Deserves Better PAC, a political action committee from Sacramento and the Pacific Northwest that is co-sponsoring the march, working hand in hand with Russo Marsh & Rogers (RM+R) public relations firm. The IRI which usually organizes rallies and protests in foreign nations, chaired by John McCain, has its hand in the strategy of these protesters also.

Sam Tanenhaus’s new book “The Death of Conservatism,” traces the split in the conservative movement between “revanchist” forces and those more willing to participate in the political process, predicts the Tea Party activists won’t have much lasting impact on mainstream politics.

GOP strategist Craig Shirley said the Tea Party movement “can’t sustain itself just as anti-liberal movement. It’s got to evolve. And it will.”

It was Rep. Ron Paul, the libertarian Texas Republican, who first dusted off the Tea Party nomenclature in 2007 during his bid for GOP presidential nomination, as both a fundraising technique.

In February 2009, some thousands turned out to Tea Party protests around the country, and on April 15, thousands more took to the streets for Tax Day Tea Parties. But it was last month’s congressional town halls, when constituents turned out in droves to voice their displeasure with their federal lawmakers and opposing free or low cost government-sponsored healthcare, that drew attention to the movement in the mainstream media.

What's interesting is that many who did not have the energy or ability to attend a tea party last week still wanted to watch them on TV. The coverage of the events by Fox News, which highlighted the protests more than other outlets, attracted more viewers than MSNBC, CNN and CNN Headline News combined. This shows that millions more were paying attention and suggests wider support for the protests.

Local San Diego TEA PARTY anti-tax events early 2010:

• Point Loma: Hundreds of protesters on Midway Drive were in a festive mood. Lorrie Bosley, 47, said the health care law is another entitlement program that the country can ill afford. She said such programs go against American self-reliance.

• Escondido: About 250 people lined Escondido Boulevard, yelling, “Honk if you’re not a liberal!” Drivers responded enthusiastically.

• Rancho Bernardo: About 190 people, including many seniors, gathered outside the post office.

• El Cajon: Waving signs with the message “Taxed Enough Already,” about 175 people rallied on Lexington Avenue.

• Carmel Mountain Ranch: A crowd of about 150 lined the streets near the post office.

• Chula Vista: A last-minute rally at the post office drew about 30 people.
