As media has been predictably instructing us how to respond, and exactly what we should feel regarding the inconceivable tragedy, de-sensitization is setting in. It’s inescapable. That coping mechanism is selected into human DNA, a gift of evolution.

De-sensitization is how we deal with bad news – take it in, process it, file it away. The worse the horror, the faster the processing. The unthinkable cannot be thought of for long. The big game’s coming on, and The Hobbit just came out, and it’s Christmas…


If you gauge your life by media, like most people, this story’s kick is already fading away – taking its place on the endless list of tragedies we shove to that dark corner in the back of our minds so we can get on with our daily existence.

Another month or so and it will be over. But what have we missed?

Organized media was on it from the start, did you see that – what’s our angle here? The google and FB ads on the right hand column sold out fast – nothing sells like blood in the streets. WR Hearst 101. And what’s the spin to be?

Taking the cue from their loudest constituents, the interests that must be served first, the PR firms worked overtime to be proactive to shield the guilty.

The Potomac think tanks had this one hammered out by the next day. What is to be our target for retribution, whom will we blame, we the Protectors of the people? How can our agenda best be furthered by this event?

Keep it simple now – no abstractions. What did all the shooters have in common? Quick, now – don’t think about it. What was it? Right – guns! So that’s going to be the focus of our collective outrage and retaliation – gun laws. Perfect – people can understand something like that – the shooters all fired guns.

So then, let the debates begin – the party lines be drawn, the intellectuals, the NRA, the defenders of the Constitution, the automatic vs. conventional weapons smokescreen, who should be armed at school, who should be armed at home, and with what… Bring in Time and Newsweek and the New York Times, prep the TV newsreaders, and the unlettered lower element ‘commentators’ on the national programs, fire up the blogs… let’s hear from everybody.

Everybody, that is, except for one – one voice must be silent. To one voice we will give no air time, no column inches, – we don’t want to hear from this voice at all.

And who might that be?

It’s the voice saying these new events aren’t fundamentally about guns. Americans have had tons of guns, since the time of Columbus, the Pilgrims, the patriots, WWII, Vietnam, today’s brave hunters in their designer togs from Outdoor World – everyone’s always been armed to the teeth in this country. So that’s not new at all.

What is new, then? What is it that has changed? Well, the One Voice is looking at another common thread in this cohort of sick monsters, besides guns. So let’s look at the shooter list and do our homework and make a chart and do some cross checking and really try to find the other common denominator in the majority of the incidents.

The first remarkable thing we see by comparing the historical lists of shooters is that they’re all different. Every list is different – check it out. Looks as though this recent phenomenon of the lone madman running amok with automatic weapons in public is much more frequent than we are led to believe. It’s not like a dozen incidents in the last 20 years – but closer to 100.

For example how many people even know about the Oregon mall shooting 3 days before Newtown? Just a footnote now – only 2 murdered. So the first fact that’s being largely overlooked is how common this type of maniacal behavior really is.

We haven’t seen one recent piece in any medium where they’re claiming to have a comprehensive list of recent shooting incidents.

There have been so many in recent years that if there are just a few victims, it’s hardly even front page news any more. Some lists don’t count them unless there’s at least 3 or 4 dead, or some other variable. So the lists are much shorter than how many wacko shooters actually are out there killing people they don’t know.


So step back, don’t try to prove anything, just look at the data, forget what your editor is expecting – what is the pattern here? Go wherever the data may lead, de-focus, find the hidden link… That old time investigative journalism spirit from days gone by…

Wait a minute – can it be? A history of prescription drug use? The psychoactive brand – what about that for a hypothesis? Let’s tale a look.

Verboten in mainstream to mention drugs, but the independent media are lining up very solidly behind this idea – the sources whose editors don’t have the boot of the drug cartels at their throats – the writers who are not told what to conclude before they even begin their research. Still an upstream swim though, since orthodox news has already defused that suggestion, primarily by blacking it out.


This new social phenomenon – mass shootings – is now well established in American culture. Hearing the beginning of the newest murder story, we now have learned to have certain expectations, right off the bat.

So, if the number of guns hasn’t changed much, what other drastic new trend have we seen in this same time frame that might suddenly cause an entire demographic to start a wave of formulaic yet random killings, with suicide a frequent adjunct?

Only one event even comes close to checking all the boxes here: psychotropic drug use. All the SSRI inhibitors, all the methylphenidate derivatives, the whole pharmacopeia of children’s ‘behavior’ drugs have antisocial, violent and suicidal behaviors as clearly stated possible ‘side effects.’ This is not in dispute. Check your PDR.


“A psychotropic drug is a chemical substance that crosses the blood-brain barrier and acts primarily on the central nervous system by affecting brain function.” [1]

Rather than reading today’s regurgitated FB or Wiki swill to learn about the extent and dangers of psych drugs, an actual resource would be Robert Whitaker’s comprehensive book: Anatomy of an Epidemic. [5] It is a masterful review of the literature.

So before we look at a few of the popular shooter lists, let’s just view some real statistics on psych drugs in recent years, to consider a possible connection with this novel murderous art form.


By 2009, 300 million prescriptions per year for psych drugs in the US. [4]

In 1987, before Prozac, one American in 184 had some mental illness disability.

In 2010, 4 million Americans are on permanent disability for psych disorders [5]

Today one American in 5 has a prescription for a psych drug. (Whitaker) [5]

In 2005, it was 1 in 10. [6]

1987: 1 in 250 children taking an antidepressant.

Today: 1 in 23 children taking an antidepressant. [5]

In 1987 ADHD was invented. BY 1991, already 1 million diagnosed.

By 2010, children diagnosed with “ADD/ADHD” on meds: 6 million [1, 2]

ADHD is now officially recognized as a lifelong disorder. [6]

After 20 years of prescribing antidepressants to children, today 1 in 15 Americans enters adulthood with a serious mental illness. [5] p221

By 2010, we spent over $25 billion a year on antipsychotics, antidepressants, and Ritalin clones.

Today over a million kids are bipolar. Psych drugs are the biggest cause. [5]

84% of children diagnosed bipolar have a history of psych drug use.

No evidence whatsoever that psych drugs fix ‘chemical imbalance’ — more evidence that the drugs cause them. That has always been a marketing term rather than a scientific one. Doctors who use this term are unfamiliar with their own history. – Whitaker p 76 [5]

A common side effect of all psych drugs: depersonalization. [5] Perhaps the single most common factor with the shooters. They don’t see the victims – or themselves -as people.]

For 82% of antidepressants, JAMA says placebos work just as well [8]

In children, antidepressants cause tendencies toward violence and suicide, as well as a host of other psych disorders.

Best studies: 11% – 62% of children prescribed antidepressants develop psychosis, like bipolar and ADHD. Whitaker [5] p 214. First the drugs, then the disorder.

In the military, the use of psychiatric medications had increased 76 percent from 2001 – 2009

At least one in six service members is on some form of psychiatric drug. [3]

Today psych drugs are a $40 billion per year business [5] p290


With these statistics as background, let’s take a look at a few of the many, many lists turning up everywhere. They’re all different, with different criteria, different findings. All that’s certain is that the total number of psychotic shooting rampages has been vastly under-reported.

Protection of the drug industry is evidenced by the refusal by any government agency to investigate a link between drug use and the shootings. They are ignoring the very clear warnings both from the manufacturers and from every international regulatory body that these behavior drugs can cause violent and suicidal personality changes.

1. Mother Jones list: A Guide to Mass Shootings in America [9]

62 murders since 1982. But if it’s 3 or less murders per shooting, it doesn’t count.


2. CCHR List: School Shooters Under the Influence of Psychiatric Drugs [10]

Documents evidence of 109 wounded, 58 killed from recent shootings involving psychotropic drugs. 11,000 reports to FDA of violence resulting from these drugs between 2004 -2011, representing less than 10% of actual incidents. 300 homicides.


3. The Real Lesson of Columbine: Psychiatric Drugs Induce Violence [11]

This article has a list of 13 shootings between 1998 and 2008, all at schools, all shooters on behavior drugs.

This article specifically shows the role of 2 SSRI drugs – Zoloft and Luvor – in the Columbine shootings of 2000.

Ann Tracy, author of Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? recounts the effects of these 2 drugs according to the manufacturer: violence, aggression, suicide, homicide, etc. [12]

The Real Lesson of Columbine presents a long list of 13 shooters and the drugs they were taking, despite the standard practice of sealing the medical records in these cases.

Why would medical records be sealed? The victims and the shooters don’t need to be protected. Who is it that needs the protection?

Simple: the drug companies.

Even such a source as shallow as the fluff movie Bowling for Columbine points out how the cover-story explanation ultimately given for that shooting never made sense, and that there was no real investigation why it happened at all. And why the media blackout in the direction of behavior drugs?

This is the same whitewash and misdirection seen across the board in all the shootings. Talk about horror, talk about blood, talk about guns, talk about God’s will, just don’t mention drugs.

Ever wonder why so many of the shootings took place at schools? In list 3 above all were at schools. And all were on psych drugs.

How about this hypothesis:

The manufacturers admit that these drugs can steal the user’s humanity. Depersonalization. In the case of the child, it is his childhood that has been stolen.

So what about the possibility of vengeance as the motivator – return to the scene of the crime – the school. You stole my youth, I take out your people. Retribution.

In the case of ADD, parents often talk about the child ‘disappearing’ after a few weeks of drugs. Part of the dehumanizing effect is the loss of the ability to empathize – the user can do longer imagine another’s pain or humanity. Witnesses often describe the shooters as cold, detached, emotionless – shooting people carries no more emotional burden than shooting bottles in a field.

With this same loss of personal value towards themselves, suicide is not such a burden, not a big stretch at all.

Above are just a few of the lists, but the pattern is very clear. Of course they all had guns – that’s why they were shootings. But then what? What other factor, new on the scene in the last few years, can be found in almost every case?

Except of course, the ones where they SEALED THE MEDICAL RECORDS.

3. The Lorax and Caltrans

A cut above the standard mind-deadening Dora/Caillou/Spongebob children’s DVD fare, a Los Angeles company has made a few movies for those aspiring to content aimed at IQ above room temperature. The most successful of these is certainly the film version of Dr Seuss’ The Lorax, which came out last year. Phenomenally artful animation, with realistically quirky characters who speak with celebrity voice-overs, the Lorax is a delight for all ages.

It actually has a premise. Behind the superb animation is a story line that engages an environmental sensibility – the authentic kind, not the sellout Green-Lite we always see. The issue is trees, deforestation, and the corrupting corporate exploitation of land and air. But all told in a lighthearted way that is not too dark to upset the 5 year olds, allowing all and sundry to be entertained and enchanted by the music, the dialogue, and the spectacle.

Briefly, we have a plucky young character setting out to make his fortune in the world – The Once-ler. He happens upon a magical and pristine forest, populated by a host of innocent storybook animals, and a unique species of tree: the truffula. The Once-ler invents a product – the Thnee- that can only be made from truffula foliage. Trouble in paradise starts when the Once-ler gets talked into going corporate, cuts down all the trees, and leaves the primeval forest in devastation. The Lorax – voiced by Danny DeVito – is a furry little mythical character who is the soul and Protector of the forest, and of the earth in general.

That’s a terrible summary of the movie – which you know if you’ve seen it. It’s really quite brilliant. But the allegorical intent of the story is deftly interworked into the entire plot and screenplay – how we’re hacking down the lungs of the planet for greed and profit, while pretending that we’re Green. Green-Lite. Like what we’ve done in Costa Rica and South America for the past 2 decades, clearing away rainforest to run cattle for Big Macs, as in SuperSize Me.

And also planting soybeans in order to make hydrogenated oil, for chips and donuts.

Anyway if all that’s news, then I’ve already lost you, so just tune back in to Ice Road Truckers, pop another diet Dr Pepper, and forget it. For those of you still with, here comes the part about CalTrans.

Perhaps you’ve noticed the billion-dollar deforestation project raging along the 101 as well as 880, I-5, and other interstates throughout California, that’s blighted our land for the past 2 years. But they don’t call it that – they call it landscaping, and highway maintenance. And beautification. Edward L Bernays language.

I thought California was broke. Did I get that wrong? I thought they were defaulting on everything, stealing pensions, and doing all sorts of nefarious trade-offs, inventing fees for everything, etc. So where did all these extra billions come from?

Now this program would be horrific even if California had a trillion$ surplus. Everybody can see what’s going on – it’s their commute. I first noticed it near the intersection of the 101 and I-880, where 2 large circular exit ramps circumscribe at least 5 acres of land. For the past century, large stands of magnificent 90′ high live oak trees had stabilized these little eco-systems, preventing erosion, entirely maintenance free and 100% natural. Then somebody brokers a deal in Sacramento, and suddenly cutting down these oxygen-producing natural woodlands becomes a bigger emergency than all other fiscal emergencies in this state.

Oxygen/C02 ratio – global warming – photosynthesis…anything?

And so, what have we seen for the past 2 years? — highway ‘construction’ – not on the torn-up roadway itself, but instead, on the landscaping at the exit ramps and alongside miles of freeways. Landscaping that not only is unnecessary, but has removed thousands of trees from the coastal and inland areas, replacing them with expensive shrubbery and unnatural ground cover – expensive tree bark – which require irrigation systems to be installed and maintained. Which further wastes California’s already scarce and most precious resource – water.

Now if you look at the re-planted areas that have been completed in the past few years on the freeways you can see the residual devastation that results from unkempt landscaping and water systems that don’t work. Erosion, dead plants – they created new work to maintain an unnatural environment in an area that had achieved a perfect natural balance during the past century. Very high maintenance – the work doesn’t get done.

The Lorax is not pleased. Because this isn’t just happening on a few exit ramps, but on thousands of acres of highway land all over the state. After these areas fall into disrepair and the next geniuses in Sacramento decide they can’t afford to maintain them, it will take another century for new hardwood trees to appear.

Just for an exercise, why don’t you make a list of things that California needs to spend money on that are more important than destroying natural woodlands.

Does the phrase quid pro quo mean anything to you?

How about pork barrel?


4. Chelated Minerals

Even the best diets require minerals supplementation today. As we learned in the Minerals chapter, there are 4 main reasons why our bodies are mineral deficient:

– depleted topsoil

– deficiencies in the produce and processed foods

– malabsorption

– several minerals compete for the same binding sites

This is undisputed. Even the corporate GM food giants aren’t disagreeing. So you’ll remember that the prime objective of the 60 Day Program is optimum cell metabolism, as well as full function of all organs. Minerals are required for normal cell operation – again, not controversial. Review chapter for details.

Since supplementation is necessary then, what are our options? There are 4 forms:

– colloidal

– elemental

– ionic

– chelated

Once again, no argument about which form is best absorbed at the cellular level. Chelated.

Next you have to learn that there are not 88 minerals necessary for humans, but only 21. See chapter for which mineral does what. And re-learn what detriments result from taking in thoseminerals we don’t use, such as excretion, competition, using unnecessary metabolic energy, etc.

What does it feel like to be mineral deficient? Fatigue is the biggie. Muscle soreness and weakness, loss of concentration, indigestion, cardiomyopathy, diabetes, – you name it. What organ or system does not require optimum cell function? That’s what minerals provide.

Even for those with a ‘healthy’ diet – juicing, organic fruits and vegetables… The organic label doesn’t guarantee any food value, remember? Organic just means it wasn’t sprayed. Actual nutrient value requires 3 things:

    * vitamins
    * minerals
    * enzymes

Total Complete Chelated Minerals – 3 capsules a day – will provide all the minerals we need for optimum cell physiology, provided of course there is a reasonably good diet, without a bunch of low-end, mineral depleting supplements.

The missing piece of the health picture, when people have ‘tried everything’ is usually mineral deficiency. Because it’s so simple, hidden in plain sight, that we often forget it.

The subtext of thedoctorwithin seems to be – don’t go for the radical, invasive, dangerous remedy until all the holistic life-affirming ones have been employed first. They’re sometimes a little slower, requiring a bit of a commitment, but at least they have no side effects, no life-threatening downside, like some other remedies we can think of.

How can supporting the natural healing properties of the body ever fail, in the long run? Get adjusted, detox, exercise, stop eating trash – that’s the only program that works for health excellence. Have you done that for 60 Days, religiously? Then what are we really talking about? We all choose our own health, and our own diseases, one way or another.

For the first time ever, thedoctorwithin has been backordered on minerals, for the last few weeks. Had a choice between making the next batch of minerals the best it could be, or else leaving out one of the essentials, because it is scarce. We opted to wait. So we apologize for everyone who has an outstanding order of Total Complete Chelated Minerals. Haven’t forgotten you, and your minerals will be sent, just as soon as they come in. Which will be any day now. To show our appreciation, we will send a free bottle of minerals to anyone with an outstanding order who calls the order line and requests one – 915 307 1055.

This lag time will never happen again.


5. The Definitive Text on Vaccines for 2013: Vaccination Is Not Immunization,
third edition

For those of you who bought the second edition – the dark blue cover – thank you. Your baby thanks you. Please read it now. It is a collector’s item, and will never be reprinted. You can probably sell it on amazon for 3x what you paid. Not that I’m recommending that. But you know Amazon.

Now we’re heading into a new frontier for 2013 in the world of vaccines. Since they are losing the debate on vaccine safety and science, monolithic medicine has resorted to legislative weaponry. An all- out attack on the legal position of vaccine exemptions is now in full operation. Introduced into 4 states so far, successful in 2, the campaign to end the personal beliefs exemption is certain to be marketed in every state in the next 2 years.

– Last month we saw that the vaccine manufacturers have ignored a petition of 40,000 pediatricians to keep thimerosal out of vaccines.

– Then a news story came out that a huge insurance company just fired 150 employees for not getting a flu shot.

– The first Congressional Hearings on autism since 2003 took place in November in Washington.

The exposés about the contamination, toxicity, and lack of science is keeping pace with draconian legislation to force vaccines onto the marginally informed. Battle lines are being drawn. 2013 will not be pretty. Parents therefore need every bit of legitimate science possible in order to make the most important decision they will make in the life of their infant- whether or not to vaccinate.

Most of that homework has already been done for them in the new 2013 version of Vaccination Is Not Immunization. It is a complete rewrite from last year’s blue book, and will include the most up to date attacks on the unvaccinated, as well as recent efforts to end exemptions nationwide. New vaccines in the pipeline are described. Outbreaks caused by routine courses of polio, DPT, HPV, flu shots, and other vaccines – all that is kept out of media – that’s what this book will lay out for you.

The infants cannot protect themselves.

Sometimes parents write and say Thanks for the book – because of it we didn’t vaccinate out child. While their child was certainly not put in harm’s way by such a decision, it seems like a minimum amount of information in order to make the most important decision a parent will make in the life of the child: whether or not to vaccinate. But it’s a solid introduction to the subject – no more google searches or wikipedia propaganda pages. The 300 references provide directed follow-up for the more diligent, rather than the random roll of the dice we are confronted with online.

The most reliable book for parents looking for the best referenced material on the Problems With Vaccines:

Vaccination Is Not Immunization – third edition – 2013
