SER 190 – Dr. Rich Petras And Fred Hether – Take Control Of Your Health

2019.06.18 SER

Big Pharma is one of the most powerful industries in the world. The global revenue for pharmaceuticals was over $1 trillion in 2014. But nowhere else in the world do the drug and medical device industries have as much power and make as much money as in the U.S.

Six of the top 10 pharmaceutical companies for 2017 have their headquarters in the U.S. These include Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, Merck, Gilead, Amgen and AbbVie.

But only 28 percent of Americans have a good opinion of Big Pharma. In fact, Big Pharma is the second most hated industry in America. It’s right behind the tobacco industry and the oil, gas and chemical industry.

Big Pharma is also the biggest defrauder of the Federal Government under the False Claims Act, according to consumer watchdog group Public Citizen.

The industry has a history of fraud, bribery, lawsuits and scandals. Despite criminal charges and fines, Big Pharma companies continue to do business.

By 2021, Big Pharma profits for prescription drugs are expected to reach $610 billion. Medical devices are also lucrative.

The U.S. makes about $148 billion, according to the U.S. Department of Commerce.

That’s about half of the world’s share of the market. Americans spent an all-time high of $457 billion on prescription drugs in 2015.

And drug prices continue to rise. Consulting firm Segal Consulting expects drug prices to rise 11.6 percent in 2017. This estimate is for Americans under the age of 65.

In contrast, wages are only expected to rise 2.5 percent. This means many Americans won’t be able to afford their medications. Information about the pharmaceutical industry found here.

Podcast: The Amateur Society – Assumptions Of The Scientific Method – 06.17.2019

2019.06.18 tAS

Welcome back to The Amateur Society for another conversation about the philosophy of science! This conversation examines the definition of the scientific method and the assumptions that are made in its application. In our society many consider science as the primary or even the only way of accessing meaningful truth. In reality, there are important limitations on the scientific method that have a significant impact on our worldviews. Unfortunately, this isn’t an area that gets covered in the standard course of education, but with a bit of determined critical thinking we can all strengthen our perspectives on this critical subject. Thanks again for joining us on The Amateur Society!

Podcast: On the Objective – The Equal Justice Tour – Matt Szyszkiewicz & Mark Trump – 06.11.2019

2019.06.11 OtO

Fellow American Patriots,

This is a call to action. Our great Constitutional Republic has once again entered an hour when our actions will determine the course of future generations. We are faced with a clear choice: either we will stand boldly for the restoration of the rule of law or our inaction will pave the way for the slide into tyranny that has destroyed innumerable lives and dreams across human history.

The Fourteenth Amendment to the US Constitution insists that every American citizen must be treated equally under the law. Brothers and sisters, we have reached this moment because we have seen our Constitution shredded, discarded, and trampled upon by those who swore an oath to defend and to uphold it.

Restoring equal justice is not a political issue. Rich or poor. Man or woman. Black or white. Big or small. Equal justice is for all. You have seen and felt this injustice for many years. Time after time the rich, powerful, and connected have flagrantly flaunted the laws of our nation while the rights of regular Americans have been incontrovertibly infringed.

Without equal justice the future belongs only to tyrants. Without equal justice our children and grandchildren can never hope to be free. Without equal justice the American dream will be buried gleefully by those who have longed endlessly and worked tirelessly to destroy the fabric of our society.

We do not accept that future.

We will not leave our families that inheritance.

We will not allow American freedom to die on our watch.

Join us on the Equal Justice Tour: a peaceful, lawful assembly of Americans exercising our First Amendment rights and insisting that equal justice for all be restored in this nation.

God bless you all, and may God bless the United States of America.

Equal Justice Tour

Podcast: The Amateur Society – Socratic Thought Experiments – 06.10.2019

2019.06.11

Welcome back to The Amateur Society for a conversation about an important component of practical philosophy: thought experiments. While sitting down and running through systematic metaphysics and other complex topics is not going to be feasible for everyday amateurs like us, we can still garner a lot of insight out of performing thought experiments. Why did a decision get made or why did a situation play out the way it did? Asking these questions about ourselves and others allows us to gain insight into more general principles that we can use to better understand our own worldviews and the world around us. Thanks again for joining us on The Amateur Society!

2019.06.10

Join your host Steven Menking as he welcomes Jordan Smith of the A Family Affair podcast on Prepper Broadcasting Network for her first solo broadcast here On the Objective! Jordan has participated in several homesteading roundtables, and in this discussion she brings her experience in parenting to a discussion about critical principles for parenting in this generation. So much of every parent’s experience is unique, and our mindset needs to have the right focus if we are going to avoid the pitfalls that so many step into. We have to do right by our children and grandchildren, and even if you are an experienced parent we hope that you will learn from this conversation and take steps to improve your relationships with your family.

Podcast: On the Objective – The Impossible Revival Is Coming – Steven Menking – 06.07.2019

2019.06.07

Join us for another Biblical discussion of important spiritual principles in partnership with Reliance! Don’t get trapped in the prison of pessimism and fatalism. Brothers and sisters our God did not create the billions of people alive in this generation to be swept away into a Devil’s hell without a chance to respond to the true gospel. God has called many of His people out of institutional churches, and it has been a painful process for many. Please press in to God to be raised up out of the quagmire of negativity. God wants to make you a leader and a partaker of the harvest in this generation. Ask Him if revival is even possible. I believe that it’s not just possible: it’s necessary. The scriptures from this message are found in Zechariah 10.

This broadcast was produced in partnership with Prepper Broadcasting Network via a new collaborative effort Reliance: An Exploration of 21st Century Faith
