Pushes The Envelope
Why would U.S. & Australian officials
assist an inveterate pirate and a convicted
pedophile in producing counterfeit products?
We have fresh answers from our own contacts.
First . . . some background is in order.
Last year, having been pummeled with angry emails from people who purchased counterfeit product, marked "Cansema" when it really wasn't, we decided, in good faith, to create a compensation program. Such letters were not new. Our office in the U.S. began receiving them shortly after my false imprisonment in 2003 right up to the establishment of our Ecuadorean lab, which opened in June of last year. Even though it wasn't our fault that competitors were fraudulently using our trademark, we felt that something should be done to relieve people's anger. Out of that experience came the Fake Product Compensation Program.
One company took the hint. Bevan Potter (Health Centreforce in Australia) decided, after our repeated badgering to do the right thing, to change the name of his product just recently.
But in the case of a partnership involving Jennifer Wilson of Drake, New South Wales (NSW) and her sidekick, George S. Ackerson, who -- as we detail in Chapter 3 of Meditopia -- works as U.S. FDA-snitch to have greater latitude in his commercial activities, the decision has been made to push the envelope. (Incidentally, Mr. Ackerson's current projects also include SaferMedicalInc.com and SaferSleep.com -- wherein he feels the need to hide his intimate connection to these operations by using DomainsByProxy.com and NetworkSolutionsPrivateRegistration.com to hide ownership.)
Last week we finally obtained a copy of their most recent catalog, marked "Alpha Omega : Traditional Herbal Remedies." Not only does this catalog claim that that they have Cansema® and that it is "exclusively manufactured and distributed internationally" by their company, but, quite shockingly, they now claim that THEY are "Alpha Omega Laboratories of Guayaquil, Ecuador." (We have created an orange transparent block over the relevant text ... OR .... you can just click for enlargement, or you can view the entire opening pages.) The implication, of course, is that even though Cathryn & I founded Alpha Omega Labs in the early 1990's and have used our company name for the better part of twenty years and run a government-approved laboratory in Guayaquil, that we are using THEIR NAME. Never mind that THEIR "Alpha Omega Laboratories of Guayaquil, Ecuador" is operating out of Drake, NSW . . . or that they have been illegally using the Cansema® trademark for six years, or that neither Jennifer Wilson or George S. Ackerson have -- in all probability -- ever set foot on the continent of South America, let along the country of Ecuador.
It would be easy to discount this development as yet another counterfeiter with too few assets to go after -- except for certain intercepted communications I received from an Ecuadorean source in Quito with government connections. Apparently Ackerson was making calls from the U.S. to sources in Ecuador, claiming that he was working with the U.S. FDA in attempting to locate and "capture" me -- (which begs the question as to his involvement in the unsuccessful operation to kidnap me that Cathryn wrote about last February).
I have to wonder what binds the FDA -- an agency with a $20 billion a year budget . . . $2 billion from the U.S. Government . . . and the other $18 billion under the table from the pharmaceutical industry and various sordid black operations -- to a man dishonorably discharged from the U.S. Army for activities at a Southeast Asian orphanage that are so unmentionable that I cannot repeat them here?
Ackerson's rogue activities were passed along to individuals with contacts to the federal government here in Quito -- which has already kicked out two officials from the U.S. Embassy in Guayaquil for its illegal, nefarious activities. (See article below, left column, for the latest development in this saga.)
Since officials in both the U.S. and Australia have been familiar with Ackerson's activities now for years, it doesn't appear to be a problem. I called a legal source in the U.S. to get a handle on the basis for this complicity, to which I received the following counsel: "Most Western governments, but particularly the U.S., hate to admit they've made a mistake. Once they're in . . . they're in. Your case involved perjurious statements passed on to FDA and DOJ officials, at the very least, concerning your 'sizeable' offshore assets that they now know to have been non-existent from the beginning. However, any action that the U.S. Government takes against Trudeau or Ackerson means that they must admit they made a mistake. They won't do that. Trudeau and Ackerson are confidential informants working undercover for the U.S. Federal Government . . . and even though DOJ officials are not competent in keeping them confidential or undercover, they can't turn back. You leave with the girl you brought to the dance. They're in bed with these scoundrels and it isn't something they're going to want to undo. They're both an embarrassment -- but the omelette's on the table and they can't unscrabble the eggs . . . Ackerson's counterfeiting activities are viewed as something for which they can look the other way."
This tendency towards official, approved criminality, as long as a dollar can be pocketed in the process appears to be running rampant at all levels now in the U.S. -- as I note in the article below.
Corruption So Gargantuan
It Can No Longer Be Concealed
Guayaquil, Ecuador -- (June 30) . . . Lately, I've been hearing more and more current and former U.S. officials bemoaning the ubiquitous criminal activities of their present or prior employer, as the case may be. [ 3 ] On the one hand, I applaud their candor and their courage -- after all, we live in a time when you risk your freedom, all your belongings, and sometimes your very life to open your mouth and proclaim the truth. I've witnessed this "up close and personal" to a degree that very few Americans will ever experience.
But another part of me finds such conversions to truth both naive and misleading. For hidden in these running reformative commentaries is the implication that the slide of the U.S. Government into the role of the world's largest and most prolific crime syndicate -- in all of recorded history -- is a recent development.
It is not a recent development.
Obama is not the devil and he didn't create this ungodly mess. An orator with a talent for reading teleprompters, he possesses not the talent, knowledge, experience, or the cerebral matter to bring us to this stage of advanced degeneracy. He elucidates only in that he glaringly demonstrates the end result of "government by puppetry" -- forcing us to come to terms with H.L. Mencken's prediction from the '30's that it was merely a matter of time before Americans elected a complete, bumbling idiot. (Think back, America, think . . . to a teleprompter-less speech, where a U.S. Senator tells us he's been to all 57 States, except for one . . . Alaska-Hawaii -- merely one example out of thousands of other worthy candidates. A more cynical mind might tell you I'm just being a crank . . . after all, the "leader of the free world" isn't even a natural born U.S. citizen -- so how should he be expected to know these things.)
This misses the larger point while marginalizing the gravity, I admit. It does, however, annunciate the underlying absurdities. For were we to take Niemöller's poem and stretch the experience of a single man, done for illustration's sake, over the life of a Republic, it might read something like this:
"In America, they first came for the Native Americans,
