The lethal injection conspiracy



In spite of three botched executions this year involving experimental drugs, the Supreme Court has remained mum on the issue- specifically, on the issue of where these drugs are manufactured and which companies are supplying them to the states where execution by lethal injection is legal.

Even after Arizona inmate Joseph Wood took two hours to die, snorting and gasping like a tortured trout, the court rejected Wood's claim that he was entitled to information about Arizona's execution procedures and, more importantly, the source of the deadly "experimental"  drugs used in the procedure.

It seems, at least from our perspective, that a sickening conspiracy is taking place within our judicial system.

Now, this isn't a matter of whether the death penalty should be abolished, it is simply a matter of transparency. You can still be in favor of the death penalty while opposing the lethal injection methods used in the United States. Yet, sadly, this discussion is sidelined by ignorant voices that say, "What do I care if it took Joseph Wood two hours to die? He was a cold-blooded killer who deserved to die."

That's not the argument at hand, folks.

What matters isn't the fact that states have the authority to take your life; what truly matters is the astonishing and frightening fact that states can take your life without telling you, your lawyer, or anyone else who, how, and where these lethal drugs are being made. What matters is that the constitutional amendment prohibiting cruel and unusual punishment is being thrown out the window by the highest court in the land. What matters is the trampling of the Constitution and the ever-quickening erosion of rights.

Firing squads, the gallows, and guillotines are one thing, but strapping a human being (guilty as he may be) to a table and pumping him full of experimental drugs is a horse of a different color. Man, even when condemned to death, is not to be treated like laboratory mice. And society, whether it supports or opposes the death penalty, is entitled to know the truth about these drugs.

So why the need for so much secrecy? What is it that the Supreme Court doesn't want the American public to know?

While the majority of Americans support capital punishment (60%, according to the latest Gallup poll), this means that a significant portion of American citizens do not- somewhere in the vicinity of 125 million Americans. Since we are not permitted to know the identities of the pharmaceutical companies involved in manufacturing or supplying the lethal injection drugs, or the identities of the compounding pharmacies which prepare these concoctions, it only stands to reason that there is a far-reaching conspiracy designed to protect the profits and reputations of these drug companies.

Think about it. If a multi-billion dollar corporation like Pfizer or AstraZeneca was revealed to be the source of the drugs used in botched executions, 125 million potential customers might be tempted to take their business elsewhere. That's a big chunk of profits walking out the door. If such is the case, it suggests that Big Pharmaceutical has the entire criminal justice system- and the Supreme Court- in its back pocket. You should be concerned. Very concerned.

When the American system of justice brings to mind the sick experiments of Josef Megele at Auschwitz, it's time to wake up and ask yourself, "Hey, just what the **** is going on here?" And when multi-billion dollar corporations have the ability to buy the Supreme Court, well, it just might be too late to wake up.

Remembering the ill-fated voyage of the Aerowagon

From 1917 to 1922, the Bolshevik-led Red Army battled the anti-Communist White Army during the Russian Civil War.  By the end of 1919 the Bolsheviks had taken the cities of Omsk and Kiev, and had successfully repelled the White Russian siege of Petrograd.  However, the Bolshevik's momentum would be short-lived as the White Army, after retreating across the Baikal, regrouped and joined forces with Gigory Semyonov's Transbaikal Cossacks.  As the Red Army's losses began to mount, especially in Poland, the Bolsheviks attempted to gain a competitive advantage by embracing new technologies, sometimes with disastrous results.  Such is the sad tale of young inventor Valerian Abakovsky and his Aerowagon.

Abakovsky was a Latvian-born inventor who earned his living as a chaffeur for Cheka, the state security organization created by Lenin.  His position granted him access to many high-ranking Soviets and, although details are scarce, Abakovsky most likely used his influence within th…

The Incest Capital of the World?

At the far eastern edge of Kentucky, nestled in Appalachia, resides Letcher County. In spite of its isolation and poverty (approximately 30% of the county's population lives below the poverty line), Letcher County has managed to grow at an impressive rate, from a population of just 9,172 in 1900 to a present-day population of nearly 25,000. However, even if Letcher County tripled or quadrupled its present population, there's still a pretty good chance that virtually all of the county's inhabitants would be related to each other-- thanks to one particularly fertile family whose astounding rate of reproduction can put even the friskiest rabbit to shame.

Around the year 1900, Letcher County was the home of a man by the name of Jason L. Webb, who made national headlines for having the one of the largest families in the world. According to newspaper reports of the era, Jason had 19 children, 175 grandchildren, and 100 great-grandchildren. Perhaps even more impressive was his br…

Jenny Hanivers, Mermaids, Devil Fish, and Sea Monks

Three centuries before P.T. Barnum attracted flocks of crowds with his mummified Fiji Mermaid (which turned out to be a papier-mâché creation featuring a monkey's head and a fish's body), sailors around the world had already began manufacturing "mermaids".  Known as Jenny Hanivers, these creations were often sold to tourists and provided sailors with an additional source of income.  These mummified creatures were produced by drying, carving, and then varnishing the carcasses of fish belonging to the order rajiformes- a group of flattened cartilaginous fish related to the shark which includes stingrays and skates.  These preserved carcasses can be made to resemble mermaids, dragons, angels, demons, and other mythical creatures.


Jenny Hanivers became popular in the mid-16th century, when sailors around the Antwerp docks began selling the novelties to tourists.  This practice was so common  in the Belgian city that it may have influenced the name; it is widely believed …
