    TS Radio: Dr. Bart Billings on psychiatry and drugging of our military

    in Psychology

    Dr. Bart Billings joins us this evening to discuss pyschiatry and the drugging of our military, especially returning veterans.  With so-called "suicides" reaching an estimated 22-30 per day, and billions being spent annually to provide "services" including psychotropic drugs, we have to ask, "What is really going on here?" 


    What if what is diagnosed as PTSD is in reality, a traumatic brain injury brought on by repeated exposure to explosions and/or explosive sound?  The injury to the brain is inevitable.  Is it possible that diagnosing PTSD and the subsequent drugging is less costly than treating the actual injury to the brain?  That maybe, those "suicides" are actually a system meant to reduce the overall costs of care of returning soldiers from all the wars we have going on.


    Please be sure to see CCHR's video:  The Hidden Enemy: The Psychiatric Drugging of the Military.

    CCHR Applauds Judge for Upholding Detroit Mother Maryanne Godboldo’s Right to Protect Daughter from Forced Drugging


    It is a case of misdiagnosis, misinformation and unrestrained persecution. Parents need to understand this is not an isolated case and it is happening across the nation far too often.”


    Despite prosecutors’ second attempt this year to bring criminal charges against Detroit mother Maryanne Godboldo, who underwent a 10 hour stand-off with police for refusing to administer a powerful antipsychotic drug to her daughter, Wayne County District Judge Gregory Bill has become the second judge this year to dismiss the charges.

    TS Radio with guest Dr. Sam Sugar

    in Politics

    Dr. Sam Sugar joins us this evening!  We will be talking at length about patients rights.   When are they applicable?  When do they end?   At what point does HIPAA end and the de facto death certificate referred to as guardianized "ward" begin?


    If you are hospitalized due to illness and have not been declared a "ward", what right does the state and its agencies and agents have to intervene in your care or decisions?


    Dr Sugar has also helped to author a bill in the Florida legislature FL SB412 which calls for revision of standing statutes and protection from predators working within the probate/family court system. 


    Why should anyone, by virtue of disability, and/or unproven mental incompetence lose all of their Constitutional protections and rights? 


    Why should anyone be "dead in the law" because they were deemed an  "ward" of the court?


    At what point does the individual cease to exist and to have rights, especially when no "team of experts"  has determined them to be incapacitated? 


    Why should vulnerability allow a predator to loot the estates, take SS and veterans checks, personal belongings, valuable property for their own purposes.


    Dr.Sam Sugar has much to say about all of this.


    These and many other questions will be addressed along with Dr. Sugar's Florida legislation that calls for major changes in the care and treatment of the elderly and others who fall prey to the organized criminal rings operating in our family and probate courts.

    TS Radio: Dr. Sam Sugar on status of Florida guardianship laws

    in Current Events

    Dr Sam Sugar joins us to talk about the progress of his group: Americans Against Abusive Probate Guardianships  


    Board Certified Internal Medical Specialist, Dr. Sam Sugar wil be featured in an in-depth discussion on legislative refrom of the For Profit Guardianship system in Florida, the emergence of AAAPG and the medico-legal issues that often enable "The Rush to Guardianship"


    "Sadly, as so many investigations have revealed, there exist in Florida a substantial number of abusive "Professional For Profit" guardians and lawyers who have manipulated the Guardianship system and repeatedly exploited their positions to loot the very estates they are sworn to protect.


    It is not just elders who are vulnerable--anyone at any age--can be deemed "incapacitated" --even seemingly healthy independent adults--and become  " A Ward of the State"


    A powerful subgroup of For Profit  Guardians has used loopholes in the law and very weak Court moitoring to wreak terrible harm on Wards and their Families while they enrich themselves with exorbitant fees and horribly abusive tactics. 


    Abusive Guardians twist and  subvert the laws giving them total power over the (allegedly) vulnerable in our society and instead of helping the frail among us,  use the power of the law to strip away precious Civil Rights and plunder estates, isolate families who get in the way, and in  the process destroy lives. They use the very laws intended to help people to destroy innocent people and their families."

    FATE, Foundation Aiding The Elderly with Carole Herman

    in Family

    Guest: Carole Herman


    After a three-year uphill battle with apathetic officials, files that mysteriously disappeared, several closures of her Aunt’s case with no action, and a pattern of stonewalling by state agencies created to protect patients from abuse and poor care, two things happened: The district administrator of the agency that licensed and monitored nursing homes was fired and Carole Herman, who fought the system for three years, founded FATE, Foundation Aiding The Elderly.


    Carole protects the weak, fights the powerful, demands government do its job and doctor's to fulfill the Hippocratic Oath.


    In October 2001 Carole was a Volunteer Spirit Award winner receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award for her work with FATE on behalf of the elderly and in February 2002 Carole was presented with a Resolution from the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors for "her dedication and care for the elderly of our community."


    Today, FATE has affiliated organizations and colleagues fighting elderly patient's rights in Texas, Kansas, Ohio, Tennessee, Illinois, Nebraska, Oklahoma and South Carolina. FATE has helped families all over the country. Civil actions have been filed on behalf of patients and their families. And the movement to illuminate and reverse the all-too-common incidents of abuse such as neglect, psychiatric drugging and criminal assaults of the elderly is growing.


    FATE fulfills a vital and increasing need of providing direct action advocacy and education that will ensure that care is received with the dignity that everyone deserves.
