FDA scientists

(NaturalNews) The criminal tendencies of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration were on full display today when it was revealed the agency installed spy software and illegally hacked into the private Gmail accounts of at least half a dozen of its own top scientists. Those scientists, it turns out, were the very same whistleblowers who warned Congress about the FDA's approval of dangerous medical devices that threatened the lives of patients. In response to them taking action to protect the lives of the innocent -- something the FDA is supposed to do but has long since abandoned -- they were instead subjected to illegal hacking and having their employment contracts with the FDA terminated.

Those six scientists and doctors have now filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court which claims that they were subjected to FDA internal harassment and unjustified job termination. The lawsuit also describes how the FDA hacked into the private email accounts of these scientists, then intercepted their "whistleblower complaints" intended to be seen only by members of Congress.

"The complaint details how the FDA targeted its employees with a covert spying campaign that lasted for two years," reports Whistleblowers.org (http://www.whistleblowers.org/index.php?opti...). "The [FDA] installed (or activated) spyware on their workplace computers and used other technology that to monitor their password-protected Gmail-to-Gmail communications. Managers used the collected information to learn the identities of confidential whistleblowers and to obtain the details of the public health and safety concerns the whistleblowers intended to disclose to the Office of Special Counsel, Congress and the Agency's own Inspector General."

More importantly, documents reveal that the FDA's own lawyers engaged in a criminal cover-up of evidence in order to obstruct justice and retaliate against the FDA scientists:

"The managers who spearheaded the surveillance efforts were the same managers involved with the wrongdoing and corruption that the whistleblowers were seeking to report. Lawyers at the FDA and HHS Offices of General Counsel, who should have understood that the program breached the employees' confidentiality, helped FDA managers with their obstruction and retaliation."

Take action to support the whistleblowers

The National Whistleblowers Center has issued an action alert seeking public support for the FDA whistleblowers. You can use the tools on the page linked below to contact your members of Congress and other recipients in Washington:

How is FDA hacking legal, but hacking Sarah Palin's email account gets you a felony conviction?

What's especially interesting about all this is the contrast to the 2008 hacking of Sarah Palin's private email account. Then, a University of Tennessee student named David Kernell hacked into Palin's email account and uncovered some embarrassing emails.

He was convicted of a felony crime called "obstruction of justice" for merely deleting emails on his computer, even when he didn't know an investigation was under way (http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/01/30/us...).

As Reuters recently reported, "While the 6th Circuit on Monday recognized the law was both vague and broad, it concluded the law applied directly to Kernell's conduct."

Ah, but guess what? That same law will never be applied to the FDA's conduct. And why? Because the federal government operates outside the law, with no respect for it. Laws only apply to the "little people," not the criminal thugs who operate the FDA, TSA, DHS, DEA and other corrupt, criminal agencies that incessantly seek more power while abandoning anything resembling lawful conduct.

See, hacking into emails is only illegal of YOU do it, not if the federal government does it. The feds are increasingly demonstrating themselves to be a gang of criminal thugs who abide by no law and run roughshod over the rights of the American people.

FDA is a criminal agency run amok

I've said it countless times here on NaturalNews: The FDA is a criminal rogue agency that is operated by criminal-minded government thugs who routinely break laws and violate human rights in order to pursue their agenda of protecting Big Pharma profits.

Their hacking into the private email accounts of employees is a federal crime -- a felony, in fact. That it was done by multiple people who plotted such actions makes it a conspiracy to commit a felony which is itself another crime. In fact, if the Justice Department actually conducted an honest investigation into the FDA's actions in this case, there is no doubt they would uncover multiple felony crimes.

And yet, just watch... there will be no real investigation, no indictments and no prosecution of FDA managers, even as they now routinely commit felony crimes and operate with complete disregard for the law. The FDA is a lawless agency with zero accountability. In fact, the agency writes its own laws by simply inventing whatever new regulations it wants to enforce, then sending out men with guns to enforce those regulations (just like what happened with the Rawesome Foods raids).

As attorney Jonathan Emord warned in his book The Rise of Tyranny (http://www.amazon.com/Rise-Tyranny-Jonathan-...), the FDA is much like the TSA in that it is a bureaucratic agency out of control. Its directors are appointed, not elected, so there is zero public accountability and no recourse for directors who have gone bad. New regulations put in place by the FDA, DEA, TSA, DHS, ATF or USDA need no Congressional approval and are not subject to any review by anyone. They simply write their own "laws" and shove them down your throat, often at gunpoint.

This is how agencies like the FDA and TSA are forming their own fiefdoms of dark power, subject to no law and no public scrutiny. And this is what allows federal agencies to routinely engage in criminal conspiracies with total immunity from prosecution.

Consider, if you will, just some of the more recent criminal acts of federal agencies like the FDA:

Federal agencies operate as total criminal gangs

• The ATF recently got caught running guns into Mexico, then laundering billions of dollars in drug money. When it got caught, there were zero prosecutions. (https://www.naturalnews.com/032934_ATF_illega...)

• The FDA has been caught numerous times lying about the known dangers of deadly prescription drugs, covering for the pharmaceutical industry, intimidating scientists and now engaging in criminal hacking crimes that actually qualifies for "acts of terrorism" under the U.S. Patriot Act. (Yes, the government IS the terrorist group!)

• The TSA routinely engages if felony sex crimes against innocent travelers by reaching down their pants and touching their genitals. This is a crime against your person and a total violation of the Fourth Amendment of the United States Constitution and its Bill of Rights, yet the TSA does it every single day, claiming total immunity from any and all laws. And amazingly, local Sheriffs sit back and allow these felony crimes to take place in their counties every single day while doing absolutely nothing to stop them!

• The USDA openly conspires with Monsanto and other GMO seed companies to destroy American agriculture by contaminating the genetic heritage of food-producing crops and aiding GMO seed companies in acquiring patent protection for their insidious "seed technology." This goes on even as those very same seeds produce crop failures that actually reduce food production and inevitably result in farmer bankruptcies and suicides.

• The FBI openly admits to not just aiding terrorists in carrying out "mastermind" terror plots in the USA, but actually providing the weapons, plans, guns, ammo, gear and explosives to help the would-be "patsy" terrorists carry out their fabricated plots! See:

• The DEA conspires with the Coca-Cola company to allow the importation of hundreds of thousands of tons of coca leaves which are processed into Coca-Cola flavoring, producing a byproduct of purified cocaine. This is all done with the full permission of the DEA -- the very same agency that would throw you or I in prison if we were caught with just a single gram of cocaine. (https://www.naturalnews.com/032658_Coca-Cola_...).

Are we a nation of law, or not?

The point is that today's federal government is run by such outrageous criminals that they routinely commit felony crimes and yet seem to operate with total immunity from prosecution. This obviously brings up a critical question: Is not the United States of America a nation of law?

Do the laws not apply equally to those in government as well as the People? Why is the federal government insisting it is immune from all prosecution for crimes? And more importantly, why should any of us ever trust the federal government when it routinely lies and commits felony crimes?

If the federal government were a private person, it would have been locked up in prison long ago, convicted of a long string of serious felony crimes. To trust this government when it says anything is foolish at best, and suicidal at worst. This is a government that actively and on the record engages in masterminding false flag terror attacks, plotting against the safety of its own people, stealing from the pension funds of federal employees (https://www.naturalnews.com/034762_treasury_f...), conducting criminal medical experiments using humans as guinea pigs (https://www.naturalnews.com/033483_Guatemalan...) and destroying the Bill of Rights with new laws like the NDAA (https://www.naturalnews.com/034537_NDAA_Bill_...) and SOPA (https://www.naturalnews.com/034695_SOPA_free_...).

To trust this government to protect our interests and our rights is the height of foolishness. No, this government has only its own interests at heart, and those interests are fully focused on expanding its power at the expensive of liberty. The People be damned...

A warning to those who think they are part of the system

I can only wonder what these six scientists who worked for the FDA have now come to realize. Before all this, they probably grinned and laughed at the world, knowing they were "part of the system" of power that dominated the U.S. economy. They were agents of the FDA, after all, and therefore practically untouchable!

But this is the great deception of the police state: All that runaway power and control that you helped put into place will eventually be used against YOU! When you join the criminal gangs in Washington and become part of the system that strips away the rights of others, you will eventually face a day of reckoning yourself. Payback is a bitch, they say, and those who lead criminal lives as part of the out-of-control federal government sooner or later find their own legs trapped in the very same freedom-crushing machine they once helped operate.

Such is the nature of tyranny: Even those who enforce it eventually become victims of it. No one is immune from the clutches of Big Brother, not even the FDA's own top scientists as we have now discovered.

At every level in the federal government, those who speak out are threatened, surveilled, terminated or sometimes just flat-out assassinated. What do you really think happened to Vince Foster, anyway? Or JFK, for that matter? The closer you get to the hub of corrupt power, the more you're worth dead versus alive, because you know too much.

All of you who work for the system will be destroyed by it

So watch out, all of you who currently lick the boots of the corrupt criminal elite -- you too shall be destroyed by the very same system you now serve. Because tyranny knows no mercy. There is no quarter granted by the Dark Lord Sauron, nor the Sith, nor the very real element of spiritual evil that lurks in the dark halls of the Pentagon, the FDA headquarters, and every other power-grabbing criminal federal agency.

They are the criminal betrayers of the American people. They betray their countrymen, their oaths of office and their own souls. And they do it out of an almost vampiric blood thirst for more power over their dominions. They are parasites of infinite evil who prey upon the hard-working men and women whose taxes pay their salaries, and if we are to save America's future, we must cut off the funding to all these agencies in the same way one cuts off the blood supply to a cancerous tumor.

Do as Ron Paul says: Eliminate the TSA. Eliminate the DEA. Eliminate DHS, the FDA and yes, even the extremely corrupt Department of Education. Send the evil creatures in Washington back home to the real world where they must learn to cooperate with people rather than ruling over them as bureaucratic tyrants. Slash the federal budget by a trillion dollars or more and you cut off the multiple heads of the hydra growing completely out of control. If more heads grow back, just show the creature a picture of Janet Napolitano, instantly turning it to stone. Aaaargh!

What we are witnessing today, my friends, is a completely out-of-control federal bureaucracy that respects no law and knows no bounds. The TSA seeks to become the Nazi SS of America, running checkpoints on every highway, sporting event and street corner. We are watching total corporate-run fascism unfold right before our very eyes, and if we do not take serious steps to reform bad government and restore our liberties right now, we will ride this monster into the depths of hellish corruption from which the USA as we now know it will never emerge.

The path we are on today can only lead to another holocaust. Mass death. Total police state powers. Countless innocent victims. We are becoming the next great holocaust in the making, and the FDA is playing a key role in furthering that dark agenda.
