  1. This book sounds like an interesting take on our situation. I would like to think that it may sell really well if we can make sure that the Covid vaccine injured are made aware of it. I shall do my bit by buying a copy and passing it on to Adam Rowland who is now a well-known name in that circle.
    The UK wing of the Covid vaccine-injured are presently going through a rather hard time – Matt Hancock, responsible for so much that went wrong here during the darkest times of the pandemic, is now trying to close down the right of the injured to discuss their condition on social media. This is a disgusting move from a disgraced member of parliament. That he even thinks in such a way about the damaged members of his public is beyond belief. It would be wonderful to rub his nose in a copy of ‘The Day the Science Died’! I can think of a good number here who could do with a copy, maybe we could ask Matt to put in a bulk order for us – he’s actually very good at that. One difference here though – it would not be a dud like so many of his previous orders!

    It is dawning on mainstream figures like Anthony Fauci that their Covid policies were a public health disaster. Lots of us are angry about the mandates, the lockdowns, the censorship, the insanity. But we need to avoid the toxic quagmire of retribution and blame and focus on ensuring this never happens again. Clean up the regulatory agencies, get corporate money out of public health, and guarantee free, open, uncensored public and scientific discourse.

    There have been an estimated 20 million deaths from Covid-19 around the world, but that number might well have doubled, Fauci said.

    Norman socks that claim…and adds some, at the end…

    Things are moving so fast; Mark Steyn was ‘Ofcommed’ out of GB News, but now has his own channel; James O’Keefe is out, and has his own O’Keefe Media Group (OMG), Andrew Bridgen is out of Government; Robert Kennedy Jnr. Runs for President…..
    Tucker, tucks up…

    The Day the Science Died: Covid Vaccines and the Power of Fear

    The coronavirus pandemic has hit the nation and the world like a tsunami, so much so that history seems to divide into pre- and post-covid. We have entered a Bizarro World, in which all the things that allow us to co-exist as a civilization of intelligent, self-governing men and women—work, school, church, fresh air, outdoor exercise, entrepreneurship, love, friendship, verve, spontaneity, joyous celebration, the human face—have been relentlessly downgraded. We are being asked to give up most of the things that make life worth living—including sovereignty over our own bodies—in exchange for a fantasy of never dying. This transaction deserves perhaps more scrutiny than it has received.

    ‘Cats on Hot Tin Roofs’ is Apt…

  3. Hello Annie,

    Thank you for this enlightening information.
    What is wrong with speaking the TRUTH?
    It is absolutely disgusting how low some people stoop.
    Stay away from toxic people.
    They come from all walks of life.
    They get dirty, grubby and nasty and their bullying ways demonstrate just how childish they are.
    There will come a day when all those who have been harmed will have their DAY OF JUSTICE.
    It is only a matter of time……………………………..!
    Demand RESPECT and SPEAK UP!
    Walk away from those who do not have your back or your highest good.
    Sadly, there are too many ratbags who have lost their way!

  4. My review of Patrick’s book, on Samizdat plus forwarded to Amazon.
    Let’s hope this nice, shiny tablet is purchased far and wide and reviewed by all who have read it.


    This is a wonderful book, a collectors’ item, a tour-de-force.

    It cracks along, at a pace, it seeks and delves; once picked up, you won’t put it down.

    Packed with eye-watering stories, this is a fair-minded litany about the Pharmaceutical Companies who produced the vaccines, the regulators who regulated, the vaccinated and the unvaccinated, the deceptions and the criticisms, the rolling-stock of narratives, all told with the voice of reason.

    Wherever you sit The Day The Science Died is a book for all the right reasons.

    It doesn’t gloat, it doesn’t lie, it is not pedestrian and it is not boring.

    The book struts hs stuff, by an author who is tantalisingly honest.

    If you are interested in the-whole-nine-yards of what happened in the Covid-Era, starting at the beginning, getting a handle of the middle, and finishing at the end, you will not be disappointed.

    You may find lots of surprises, you may be shocked, you may be stunned, you may be might feel uncomfortable, but you will never be able to say nobody ever told you.

    The Day The Science Died, fills a niche not previously covered.

    My feeling is Patrick D Hahn has a Hit from his Hands.

    ADHD: Private clinics exposed by BBC undercover investigation

    Patients are being offered powerful drugs and told they have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) after unreliable online assessments, a BBC investigation has discovered.

    Three private clinics diagnosed an undercover reporter via video calls.

    But a more detailed, in-person NHS assessment showed he didn’t have the condition.
    The clinics say they conduct thorough assessments and follow national guidelines.

    Private ADHD Clinics Exposed

    People are turning to private clinics for an assessment to determine whether they have ADHD. Panorama investigates whether they are being given a reliable diagnosis?

    Obedience Pills: ADHD and the Medicalization of Childhood

    by Patrick D. Hahn

  6. “Here is an example: In 2012, the pharmaceutical group GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) was fined almost £2 billion after admitting bribing doctors and encouraging the prescription of unsuitable antidepressants to children (there has — as yet — been no such case actually involving ADHD drugs). 

    GSK showered hospitality and kickbacks, including trips to resorts in Bermuda, Jamaica and California, on doctors who agreed to write extra prescriptions.”

    PETER HITCHENS: It has a huge and powerful lobby which turns with fury on its critics so I know this question will get me into loads of trouble but… does ADHD even exist?

    PUBLISHED: 01:42, 18 May 2023 | UPDATED: 01:49, 18 May 2023

    Does ADHD in fact exist? This week the BBC’s Panorama programme quite rightly exposed some very worrying private clinics. 

    In online consultations, staff had diagnosed a BBC reporter with ADHD — attention deficit hyperactivity disorder — despite an in-person, and far longer, assessment by an NHS psychiatrist concluding that he didn’t have the condition. 

    The clinics, while charging rather plump fees, seemed to have an extremely relaxed attitude towards diagnosing this increasingly common complaint. 

    It is a huge issue. ADHD was once mainly confined to children but is now spreading rapidly into the adult populations of the Western world. 

    The clinics, one of them working on behalf of the overloaded NHS, were also willing to prescribe powerful stimulant drugs on the basis of this.

    Mainstream doctors drew up their skirts in horror. Very alarming stuff. But the whole programme was based on two assumptions.

    The first was that ADHD exists at all, and the second was that there is some gold standard objective, testable diagnosis, against which these clinics can be judged. 

    I know this will get me into all kinds of trouble. The ADHD lobby is huge and powerful and turns with fury on its critics. It propels legions of people into lifelong prescriptions, as it officially cannot be cured, only ‘treated’. 

    And I suppose it is reasonable to guess that the makers of these drugs are happy with that. They have superb PR and spin machines and are brilliant at recruiting doctors to their side, with charm and lavish perks. 

    Here is an example: In 2012, the pharmaceutical group GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) was fined almost £2 billion after admitting bribing doctors and encouraging the prescription of unsuitable antidepressants to children (there has — as yet — been no such case actually involving ADHD drugs). 

    GSK showered hospitality and kickbacks, including trips to resorts in Bermuda, Jamaica and California, on doctors who agreed to write extra prescriptions. 

    But more ferocious than all of this power and wealth are the parents (and often the teachers) of the children diagnosed. They want the child’s problems to have a medical cause, rather than to be linked to modern child-rearing techniques or schooling. 

    And, of course, the sufferers are glad to be relieved of any personal responsibility for their behaviour. 

    And what is this behaviour? The NHS website provides a list. Here is part of it: having a short attention span and being easily distracted; making careless mistakes — for example, in schoolwork; appearing forgetful or losing things; being unable to stick to tasks that are tedious or time-consuming; appearing to be unable to listen to or carry out instruction; being unable to sit still, especially in calm or quiet surroundings; constantly fidgeting; excessive talking; being unable to wait their turn; acting without thinking; interrupting conversation. 

    First, who has not behaved in this way? Next, notice how many of these supposed symptoms are not really experienced by the alleged sufferer, but by the adults in charge of them. 

    One of the problems with the diagnosis of ‘ADHD’ is that it covers such an extraordinarily broad range of behaviours, including children who may actually suffer from birth trauma or brain damage, and children who are merely wilful and obstinate, or are driven to distraction by dull schools and bad teachers. 

    Worse, it closes the subject. If all these millions truly are suffering from a treatable physical disorder, then we need not worry about our debased family life, dominated by screens and junk food, and short on sleep and outdoor activity and our uninspiring schools. 

    A pill — often nowadays prescribed for life — will solve the problem. Meanwhile, the small minority of children who do actually have something physically wrong with them are dosed with drugs that pacify them, and their real problems are ignored and go uninvestigated. 

    This means, firstly, they are not treated and, secondly, that medical knowledge ceases to advance. It’s arguable whether the ‘diagnosis’ of ‘ADHD’ objectively helps any of those to whom it is applied. But it gets a lot of adults off the hook of responsibility and closes off scientific inquiry. 

    Even if some of these children do actually have a physical defect curable by drugs, they cannot conceivably all be in this exact plight — six or seven million children now in the U.S., hundreds of thousands in Britain. 

    And then there is the problem of the pills they get. In the U.S., many children are prescribed an actual amphetamine, a class B drug normally illegal, with many known bad long-term side-effects. Yet this is given to boys and girls as young as four. 

    In this country, the drug normally prescribed to children over the age of five is methylphenidate, similar to but not identical to amphetamines. 

    Like them it is used illegally without prescription as a stimulant and an aphrodisiac. 

    Among its adverse effects are tachycardia (a fast heart rate), palpitations, headache, nausea, insomnia and anxiety. Not to mention weight loss and abdominal pain. If this does not worry you, then it does not worry you. But it worries me a lot. 

    And here comes the other amazing thing. On November 18, 1998, the U.S.’s National Institutes of Health (NIH) held what is called a ‘Consensus Conference’ on ‘ADHD’. This sought to get some kind of agreement about what ‘ADHD’ is and how to treat it. I suspect there may have been quite a struggle. 

    The conference eventually issued a statement saying firmly that there is no independent, valid test for ADHD, and there is no data to show that it is due to a brain malfunction. This, of course, badly undermines the case for giving potent drugs, which act physically on the brain, to supposed sufferers. 

    If you look for this information on the internet now, you will probably not be able to find it. It has inexplicably disappeared from the NIH’s own website and I have tried and failed to get an explanation from them as to how or why this happened. 

    Bit by bit, I found scraps of evidence that the statement had really been made. Then I found a lawyer in the pleasant lakeside city of Madison, state capital of Wisconsin, who happened to keep a copy of the original statement. And there are the original words.

    ‘We do not have an independent, valid test for ADHD, and there is no data to indicate that ADHD is due to a brain malfunction. Further research to establish the validity of the disorder continues to be a problem.’ 

    Somehow, this has morphed into the much vaguer wording that ‘as of yet, there is no independent valid test for ADHD. Although research has suggested a central nervous system basis for ADHD, further research is necessary to firmly establish ADHD as a brain disorder.’ 

    I find this censorship of the truth creepy and disturbing, as I find the whole issue of medicating children disturbing. But since then, somebody has realised that adults, too, can be seduced into this belief that a pill will make them fit in better with the modern world. 

    Long ago, Aldous Huxley predicted a society in which a drug called Soma (miraculously harmless) would solve all the woes of society. 

    As he put it: ‘All the advantages of Christianity and alcohol; none of their defects… the warm, the richly coloured, the infinitely friendly world of Soma-holiday. There is always Soma, delicious Soma, half a gramme for a half holiday, a gramme for a weekend, two grammes for a trip to the gorgeous East, three for a dark eternity on the moon.’ 

    He meant it as a warning. We have taken it as a manual.
