USA: LA COUR SUPRÊME SE PENCHE SUR LE RETARD MENTAL ET LA PEINE DE MORT 

Washington - La Cour suprême américaine s'est penchée lundi sur le cas d'un condamné à mort dont le retard intellectuel a été reconnu par la justice fédérale mais pas par celle de son Etat d'origine, questionnant les conditions d'exemption de la peine de mort.

La législation américaine sur la peine capitale est en effet au coeur de cette affaire dont les neuf juges de la plus haute instance judiciaire des Etats-Unis ont entendu lundi les arguments pendant une heure et doit statuer avant l'été.

La Cour suprême a statué à deux reprises qu'un handicapé mental ne pouvait être exécuté, mais elle a renvoyé aux Etats fédérés eux-mêmes la responsabilité de définir les modalités pour déterminer ce handicap.

La loi établit qu'un tribunal fédéral peut arrêter une exécution à la seule condition que le tribunal d'un Etat fédéré a été déraisonnable en examinant les faits.

C'est ce qu'invoque la défense d'un homme, Kevan Brumfield, dans le couloir de la mort de Louisiane (sud) après sa condamnation pour le meurtre d'une femme policier en 1993 lors d'un hold-up.

L'avocat du condamné, Michael DeSanctis, a plaidé que son client avait présenté à son procès des preuves écrasantes de ses retards mentaux constatés depuis sa naissance, selon lui.

Pour l'avocate de l'Etat de Louisiane Premila Burns, la question du retard mental n'a pas été soulevée lors du procès.

Mais ce procès s'était tenu bien avant 2002, date de l'arrêt Atkins v. Virginia qui affirme que le Huitième Amendement de la Constitution proscrit l'exécution en cas de handicap intellectuel.

Après cette date, la défense a donc demandé une audience et le financement d'une expertise pour prouver son retard mental, demandes refusées par le tribunal de Louisiane.

Néanmoins, un tribunal fédéral lui a accordé cette audience, puis, sur la base de nouvelles expertises, a établi que le condamné était handicapé intellectuel et donc inapte pour l'exécution.

L'Etat de Louisiane a interjeté appel devant une cour fédérale qui a renversé le jugement par déférence pour la justice de l'Etat de Louisiane.

La question est donc de savoir si le tribunal de l'Etat de Louisiane a été déraisonnable en ne prenant en considération que le procès et s'il a violé les droits constitutionnels du condamné en lui refusant la possibilité de plaider son retard mental.

Un tribunal local peut-il déterminer un retard mental, ou l'absence de retard mental, sur la base d'un procès qui n'en a pas fait mention', a indiqué la juge Sonia Sotomayor.

Pourquoi la défense aurait-elle tort de demander une audience qui s'attaque à cette seule question', s'est-elle interrogée.

A moins que la Cour suprême ne casse la dernière décision, un retardé mental va être exécuté, a rappelé l'avocat du condamné Michael DeSanctis.

Alors que la peine de mort et les exécutions déclinent à travers le pays, il est de plus en plus important que de vieux cas comme celui de M. Brumfield soient examinés avec la précision exigée aujourd'hui, avait commenté avant l'audience Rob Dunham, directeur du Centre d'information sur la peine capitale.

LET YOUR BRAIN RELAX : MINDFULNESS MEDITATION CAN REDUCE SOME TBI SYMPTOMS


Posted by Myron J. Goodman, DCoE Public Affairs on April 15, 2015



Staying in the moment can be hard for anyone, but it’s a particular challenge for people recovering from brain trauma. Mental distractions, such as too much excitement, anxiety and other mental stress, are hallmarks of traumatic brain injury (TBI) and can affect the healing process. According to experts and research, a simple and effective way to help the brain repair itself is to give it a little R&R (military slang for rest and recuperation).

That’s where mindfulness meditation, which helps quiet the mind, comes in. This form of meditation is becoming more common as research continues to prove the benefits of using it to treat traumatic brain injury. Mindfulness meditation teaches patients to achieve open, accepting, non-judgmental awareness (mindfulness) of the present moment by focusing attention on the breath. It is helpful not only during the stressful period immediately after an injury but throughout the recovery process, according to an expert with the Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center (DVBIC).

“Being able to stay in the moment and calm the mind is useful for TBI recovery,” said Dr. Donald Marion, a senior clinical consultant with DVBIC. “I think this practice is both beneficial during recovery and also down the road ¾ you can use these techniques almost any time.”

Mindfulness meditation is most often used as an adjunctive treatment for stress management, anxiety, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression and pain. Although its use in TBI therapy is less common, it can be a powerful tool, said Dr. Maulik P. Purohit, director of research of neurorehabilitation and traumatic brain injury at Fort Belvoir Community Hospital. His research has shown that meditation may potentially have multiple impacts on different areas of the brain.

“It helps mitigate some of the stress response that can cause harm to areas of the brain responsible for attention, memory and other cognitive functions,” Purohit said.

According to Purohit, meditation has the potential to create beneficial neuroplasticity (the brain's ability to reorganize itself) in several important areas of the brain, such as the medial pre-frontal cortex, dorsal lateral prefrontal cortex, cingulum bundle, and corpus callosum.

It can also improve sensory functions and interoceptive perception, “which means the individual has a better understanding of what is going on inside his/her body to help address things such as stress,” he added.

Although we don’t know the exact percentage of TBI patients who are using mindfulness meditation to cope with symptoms, Purohit said it and other alternative therapies are popular with patients. He conducted a national study which found that 40 percent of patients with one neuropsychiatric symptom turn to integrative medicine in the course of a year, increasing to 50 percent for patients with three or more symptoms.

“Anecdotally, based on our clinical population, there appears to be a high demand for non-pharmaceutical treatments for patients with TBI as well,” Purohit said.

Patients who sustain TBI are affected not just physically but emotionally, according to Dr. Rick Leskowitz, Director of Integrative Medicine Project at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital in Boston. While the physical signs of a TBI may not be immediately visible, the way the patient acts and reacts in normal, everyday situations can offer clues. Outbursts, not responding to peers or showing signs of extreme mood swings can be symptoms of a TBI. All can be reduced by mindfulness meditation, he said. Physical symptoms such as headache and dizziness can take longer to heal.

“Sometimes emotional symptoms are easier to shift, while the physical problems are a bit more embedded and take longer to respond,” Leskowitz said.

By far the greatest benefit of mindfulness is improvement in a person’s attention span, he said. This is important for TBI patients but it’s also helpful for anyone, especially in the Internet age.

“Our modern society is so distracted by devices and screens that people function as though they have mild concussions and can't focus,” Leskowitz said. “That's why meditation is becoming so popular ¾ it really gives people control once again over their ability to pay attention.”

A recent post in the DCoE Blog series on mindfulness described simple steps for meditating mindfully. A mindfulness mobile application developed by the National Center for Telehealth & Technology (T2) and the Department of Veterans Affairs is available from the iTunes store.

CONSPIRACY THEORY AS A PERSONALITY DISORDER?

STATUTES FOR COMMISSION FOR PROTECTION OF MINORS RELEASED


The legal and perfect control by the Roman Pontiff on each of us. If we don't submit to the temporal and spiritual power of the Jesuit Pope with the help of Cardinal Seán O’Malley, the President of the Pontifical Commission for the Protection of Minors, they will be able, by laws, to persecute our kids and us in all manners. You still think you're free? No, we are all slaves of Rome until the Messiah will come back to liberate us. He's the only Messiah and our Liberator.

"The purpose of the Commission is to propose initiatives to the Roman Pontiff, according to the procedures and determinations specified in these Statutes, for the purposes of promoting local responsibility in the particular Churches for the protection of all minors and vulnerable adults"

The treatment of "conspiracy theories" by the US intelligentsia is reminiscent of the Soviet commissions that labeled political dissidents mentally ill.

Download this essay (PDF)

While psychiatry as a means of repressing political dissent was well-known for its use the USSR, this occurred no less and perhaps more so in the West, and particularly in the USA. While the case of Ezra Pound is comparatively well-known now, not so recognized is that during the Kennedy era in particular there were efforts to silence critics through psychiatry. The cases of General Edwin Walker, Fredrick Seelig, and Lucille Miller might come to mind.

As related by Seelig, the treatment meted out to political dissidents in psychiatric wards and institutions could be hellish. Over the past few decades however, such techniques against dissent have become passé, in favor of more subtle methods of social control. While the groundwork was laid during the 1940s by President Franklin Roosevelt calling dissidents to his regime the “lunatic fringe,” this became a theme for the social sciences, the seminal study of which is The Authoritarian Personality by Theodor Adorno et al. This Zionist-funded study established an “F” scale in which respondents were tested for latent “Fascism.” The extent depended on their attitudes towards hitherto what was regarded as traditionally normative values, such as affection for parents and the family, the latter in particular regarded by these social scientists as the seed-bed of “Fascism.”

While social mores have been established to make dissidents pariahs, to impose a soft totalitarianism of the Huxleyan Brave New World variety, social scientists remain occupied with creating new approaches for the continuing de-legitimizing of dissident opinions. Among the primary targets are those who have in recent years been termed “conspiracists.” The term is used to induce a pavlonian reflex in nullifying dissident views on a range of subjects, like the words “racist, “fascist,” “sexist,” etc. Any hint of “conspiracism” in a paper is also sufficient to prevent it from even reaching the initial stage of peer review if submitted to a supposedly academic journal, where one might expect a range of views to be debated.

Recently a group of psychologists studying the allegedly contradictory nature of conspiracy beliefs were able to furnish mind-manipulators with a study that can be used to show that anything associated with or labelled as “conspiracy theory” can be relegated to the realm of mental imbalance. The paper was published as “Dead and Alive: Beliefs in Contradictory Conspiracy Theories.”[1] The abstract reads:

Conspiracy theories can form a monological belief system: A self-sustaining worldview comprised of a network of mutually supportive beliefs. The present research shows that even mutually incompatible conspiracy theories are positively correlated in endorsement. In Study 1 (n ¼ 137), the more participants believed that Princess Diana faked her own death, the more they believed that she was murdered. In Study 2 (n ¼ 102), the more participants believed that Osama Bin Laden was already dead when U.S. special forces raided his compound in Pakistan, the more they believed he is still alive. Hierarchical regression models showed that mutually incompatible conspiracy theories are positively associated because both are associated with the view that the authorities are engaged in a cover-up (Study 2). The monological nature of conspiracy belief appears to be driven not by conspiracy theories directly supporting one another but by broader beliefs supporting conspiracy theories in general.[2]

The conclusion is that conspiracy theorists have a generalized suspicion of all authority and thereby believe that any event is the product of a conspiracy by authority. Several categories were used to score contradictory attitudes in regard to conspiracy. The subjects were chosen from 137 undergraduate psychology students. Five questions were asked regarding conspiratorial beliefs in Princess Diana’s death.[3] The results “suggest that those who distrust the official story of Diana’s death do not tend to settle on a single conspiracist account as the only acceptable explanation; rather, they simultaneously endorse several contradictory accounts.”[4]

There are several factors to consider:

The small number of subjects drawn from the same background.
Whether the belief in contradictory theories is rather the willingness to accept several alternatives rather than being bound to a single explanation.
The tests appear to be of a “tick the boxes” character, and do not appear to offer the subjects opportunity to explain their views.
The test therefore seems to be nothing other than very limited statistical surveys from which a generalised theory is postulated in regard to “conspiracism.”

Other test categories were on 9/11 and the death of Osama bin Ladin.

In is of interest that Wood, Douglas, and Sutton draw on The Authoritarian Personality in creating a psychological profile of conspiracists that will accord with the Liberal-Left assumptions of “conspiracists” as “fascists’ and “anti-Semites”: “There are strong parallels between this conception of a monological belief system and Adorno et al.’s (1950) work on prejudice and authoritarianism.”[5] The purpose of the study can be discerned from this passage:

If Adorno’s explanation for contradictory antisemitic beliefs can indeed be applied to conspiracy theories, conspiracist beliefs might be most accurately viewed as not only monological but also ideological in nature. Just as an orthodox Marxist might interpret major world events as arising inevitably from the forces of history, a conspiracist would see the same events as carefully orchestrated steps in a plot for global domination. Conceptualizing conspiracism as a coherent ideology, rather than as a cluster of beliefs in individual theories, may be a fruitful approach in the future when examining its connection to ideologically relevant variables such as social dominance orientation and right-wing authoritarianism.[6]

Conspiracism is identified as inherently “right-wing authoritarian” ideology. The authors, Wood, Douglas, and Sutton, thereby show themselves to be ideologically biased and agenda-driven; in the same manner as Adorno, et al. Moreover, in ascribing “conspiracism” to “right-wing ideology’” there seems to be a remarkable ignorance as to the diversity of “conspiracists.”

What is one to make, for example, of Carroll Quigley, Professor of History at Harvard and Georgetown University Foreign Service School, whose academic magnum opus Tragedy & Hope, is often quoted by “conspiracists.” This includes several dozen pages describing an “international network” of bankers whose aim is to bring about a centralized world political and financial control system.[7] Despite the relatively few pages on this network in Quigley’s 1,300-page tome, he regarded the role of this network in history, over the course of several generations, as not only pivotal, but also as laudable (apart from its ‘secrecy”).[8]

Wood, Douglas, and Sutton begin their paper with the definition: “A conspiracy theory is defined as a proposed plot by powerful people or organizations working together in secret to accomplish some (usually sinister) goal.”[9] Based on that definition, it would seem difficult to conclude anything other than that Quigley was describing conspiracy, insofar as it is:

“Secret,” which Quigley laments as being the primary cause of his disagreement with it,
Composed of powerful people or organizations,
Aims to accomplish a specific goal.

The only question is whether “it” should be considered as “sinister,” however, Wood, et al, state that “conspiracies” are “usually” regarded as “sinister,” which presumably means that it is a frequent but not essential ingredient. Obviously, the word “sinister” is subjective. Quigley regarded “it” as being composed of highly cultured and intelligent men of good intentions for the world, although he seemed to have doubts towards the end of his life, when the lecture circuit had been denied to him, and his scholarly Tragedy & Hope was inexplicably suppressed by his publisher.[10]

What can one make also of the “warning” to the American people by Dwight Eisenhower during his “farewell speech,” in which he referred to the ‘military industrial complex,” which became a favorite expression of the Left? Eisenhower pointed out its wide ramifications, not only economic and political but also on moral and cultural levels. He stated of this:

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist….

The prospect of domination of the nation’s scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present and is gravely to be regarded. Yet, in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite.[11]

Here are the primary elements for “conspiracy theory” in Eisenhower’s address:

There is a threat that is obviously “secret,” or at least not above-board, otherwise Eisenhower would not see the need to make it a feature of his final words as President.
This threat involves a cabal: “the military industrial complex,” and a technocratic “elite.”
The threat involves “the power of money.”
The threat is that of the accumulation of power by these elites.

During the Cold War, John F. Kennedy also referred to a global conspiracy, while “extremists” such as The John Birch Society had been saying the same, and were pilloried by the Kennedy administration as dangers to American democracy. Kennedy stated to the Newspaper Publishers Association that they had a duty in the fight against this international conspiracy. He began by referring to Karl Marx having been a writer for the New York Herald Tribune in 1851. The context is important because Kennedy was obviously referring to a “communist conspiracy” although “conspiracists” have often portrayed Kennedy as referring to a conspiracy of a secret society. This is clearly not the case. Nonetheless, this only shows that some “conspiracists,” no more or less than anyone else, are not always accurate in how they interpret something. However, Kennedy is nonetheless a “conspiracist,” regardless of what “conspiracy” he is describing. He did however refer to the abhorrence Americans have had for “secret societies.” He then stated:

For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence—on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations.[12]

Kennedy used the word “conspiracy.” He was a “conspiracist” in today’s derogative terminology.

Are we really to believe that it is mentality questionable to state that the Bilderbergers for example are a “conspiracy” with a globalist agenda when they have all the facets of a “ conspiracy,” other than to decide subjectively whether such cabals have an evil or a noble intent?

Would Eisenhower score as a “right-wing authoritarian” on Adorno’s personality tests, or as “monological” on the tests of Wood, Douglas, and Sutton? Would Quigley? Kennedy? Would Professor Michel Chossudovsky and the large number of academics who are involved with the Centre for Research on Globalization[13] be characterised as ‘monological” and “right-wing authoritarians’ by Wood, Douglas and Sutton? Perhaps what is required is a screening process whereby “conspiracists” of the “Left” are distinguished from “conspiracists” of the “Right,” allowing the former to retain their legitimacy, while the latter can be subjected to either public anathema or psychiatric treatment, such as lobotomy, medication, or long-term confinement?

Therefore, it seems that there must be arbiters from on high to determine what “conspiracy theories” are socially and politically acceptable and what are not, reminiscent of the Soviet psychiatric commissions that examined political dissidents and diagnosed mental illness.

Dr Karen Douglas describes her academic focus:

My primary research focus is on beliefs in conspiracy theories. Why are conspiracy theories so popular? Who believes them? Why do people believe them? What are some of the consequences of conspiracy theories and can such theories be harmful?[14]

The description implies that “conspiracy theorists” are apt subjects for psychological diagnosis, because they are intrinsically “harmful” to society, like Adorno’s suspicion of the family as the seed-bed of “Fascism.”

PSYCHIATRY_ THE TRUE SHADOW GOVERNMENT - RON PAUL IN VIDEO YOU HAVE NOT SEEN!

Under the complete Jesuit control

It takes corrupt minds to establish a Federal Reserve, to execute a Holocaust, to forward racism propaganda from past to present, to call for mandatory mental screening and mass psychiatric "medicating" of a society. All the while, running the show through mass-media-mind-programming geared towards unawareness and quite frankly... slavery. Who corrupts these minds? Who whispers in the ears of the "world elite" while hiding behind pillars in the halls of your nation's capitol?

Find out more about psychiatry's strangle hold of society, Their agenda to target America and thus continue their dominance and control over world governments and all sectors of society. They run the whole damn show!

COLLEGE SUSPENDS WOUNDED MARINE, LABELS HIM A THREAT BECAUSE HE DARED TO ASK FOR A NON-MUSLIM COUNSELOR 


25 May, 2015 by Warner Todd Huston

A veteran Marine was kicked out of a Mississippi college because he had the audacity to ask for a non-Muslim counselor. Not only did the school suspend him, they also labeled him as a “threat” to himself and other students.



This is the disrespect that our schools have for our veterans.
Citation:



Months after the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) pledged to improve its treatment of veterans, disabled student veteran Jeremy Rawls is hoping his college might do the same.

Since February, the rising senior at Mississippi College in Clinton, Miss. has struggled to maintain good grades and reclaim his work-study position after MC administrators allegedly suspended him and labeled him a threat to himself and other students.

In an exclusive interview with Campus Reform, the former active-duty Marine who served two combat tours in Iraq said his suspension came after he requested to meet with a different counselor in the school’s Office of Counseling and Disability Services. Rawls, who is diagnosed with combat-related post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), was originally paired with a female counselor who wore traditional Muslim dress during his initial visit to the office.

“It’s not that I didn’t want to participate… I didn’t want to traumatize her and it wasn’t a good environment to be talking about [my disabilities] with that specific person,” Rawls said.



Where ever you find liberals you’ll find anti-Americanism.

Monthly Webinars


The Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury (DCoE) hosts monthly webinars to provide information and facilitate discussion on a variety of topics related to psychological health and traumatic brain injury. The webinars are open to the public, and many provide continuing education.

TRANSLATIONAL NEUROREHABILITATION OUTCOMES : RESEARCH TRENDS AND PERSON-CENTERED CARE 

June 11, 2015; 1-2:30 p.m. (ET)

Trauma care and acute care have significantly improved the survival of and reduced disability in individuals who have sustained moderate to severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). However, post-hospital care has been less well defined or validated as an intervention for this population. This webinar addresses research which supports the neurological continuum of care from the neurological intensive care unit through post-hospital care to return home.

Current research substantiates that post-hospital care leads to positive results and ultimately decreases disability in individuals with extensive injury. Statistical analyses such as the Rasch statistical technique have the potential for determining the level of rehabilitation intervention. This technique reveals that Instrumental Activities of Daily Living tend to be the most difficult skills to rehabilitate and those to change last in the skill acquisition continuum. This analysis provides a method to facilitate person-centered care outcomes. For those with fewer resources, this model can be adapted to person-centered therapy in the home.

At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will be able to:
  • Articulate how current research trends in post-hospital rehabilitation impact healthcare decisions
  • Discuss outcomes prediction, measuring and monitoring and cost utilization
  • Incorporate the application of the facility-based model to the home and community level for the individual with limited resources

Webinar participants will learn to:
  • Describe the relevance of technology to PTSD clinical practice
  • Demonstrate an understanding of issues relevant to clinical decision making for the application of technology in practice
  • Synthesize key privacy and ethical issues related to the use of technology in PTSD practice

DEM JUDGE ORDERS PSYCH COUNSELING FOR D'SOUZA 

Clinton appointee ignores physicians, orders more treatment for Dinesh

Published: 1 day ago

Jerome R. Corsi About | Email | Archive

http://www.wnd.com/author/jcorsi/?archive=true
Jerome R. Corsi, a Harvard Ph.D., is a WND senior staff writer. He has authored many books, including No. 1 N.Y. Times best-sellers "The Obama Nation" and "Unfit for Command." Corsi's latest book is "Who Really Killed Kennedy?"


Judge Richard Berman

NEW YORK – At a hearing Monday in Manhattan in which he ruled filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza must continue community service for four more years, U.S. District Judge Richard M. Berman said he considers D’Souza’s violation of federal campaign-finance laws to be evidence of a psychological problem and ordered further counseling.

D’Souza’s defense counsel Benjamin Brafman provided evidence to the court that the psychiatrist D’Souza was ordered to see found no indication of depression or reason for medication. In addition, the psychologist D’Souza subsequently consulted provided a written statement concluding there was no need to continue the consultation, because D’Souza was psychologically normal and well adjusted.

But Judge Berman, who was appointed by Bill Clinton, disagreed, effectively overruling the judgment of the two licensed psychological counselors the U.S. probation department had approved as part of D’Souza’s criminal sentence.

“I only insisted on psychological counseling as part of Mr. D’Souza’s sentence because I wanted to be helpful,” the judge explained. “I am requiring Mr. D’Souza to see a new psychological counselor and to continue the weekly psychological consultation not as part of his punishment or to be retributive.

D’Souza has become known for his two popular films critical of President Obama. “2016: Obama’s America” was released during the 2012 presidential campaign and “America: Imagine the World Without Her” came out in July 2014, ahead of the midterm elections.

“I’m not singling out Mr. D’Souza to pick on him,” Berman said at the hearing Monday. “A requirement for psychological counseling often comes up in my hearings in cases where I find it hard to understand why someone did what they did.”

WND reported that at the Sept. 23, 2014, sentencing hearing, Berman said he could not understand how someone of D’Souza’s intelligence, with credentials that include college president, could do something so stupid as to violate federal campaign contribution laws. D’Souza was at the pinnacle of his career, writing bestselling non-fiction books and producing popular feature films.

As WND reported, after pleading guilty to campaign-finance violations, D’Souza was sentenced in September to eight months in a work-release center, five years of probation, a $30,000 fine and community service. He pleaded guilty in May 2014 to arranging “straw donors” to contribute $10,000 to the failed 2012 U.S. Senate campaign of Wendy Long, a college friend.

On May 31, he was released from nightly detention at a work-release center in San Diego after eight months. During that time, in fulfillment of his community service requirement, he taught English once a week to Spanish-speaking applicants for American citizenship. Berman ruled Monday he must continue for another four years the community-service portion of his sentence.

In his eight months of nightly confinement, he found time to sign a contract with HarperCollins and begin writing a new book to follow his 2014 New York Times bestseller, “America.” He also started the process of financing his next feature film, scheduled for the 2016 presidential campaign. And he’s designed a sequel to his highly profitable 2014 feature film, “America: Imagine the World Without Her.”

‘I was a psychology major’

Berman explained at the hearing Monday that his social-work training combined with his psychology major has made him sensitive to psychological issues in the criminal cases he hears.

“You have to understand, I have a background in social work with a psychology major,” Berman explained. “I’m sensitive to mental health issues in the criminal cases I hear, and I do not want to end psychological counseling at this time in Mr. D’Souza’s case.”

Brafman countered that it was not fair to require someone like D’Souza to continue psychological counseling as part of his sentence when the doctors D’Souza has seen so far believe he does not need to continue the psychological counseling.

“Applying your argument to white-collar crimes,” Brafman continued, “why wouldn’t all white-collar criminals need psychological counseling?”

Berman countered that 85 percent of all criminal defendants who appear before him argue they don’t need psychological counseling or drug therapy, among other rehabilitative interventions.

‘A colossal failure of introspection’

“What I’m reading in the psychological case notes is compatible with my own impressions,” Berman continued. “The psychological case notes indicate that while Mr. D’Souza is highly intelligent, he has remarkably little insight into his own motivations, that he is not introspective or insightful, but that he tends to see his own actions in an overly positive manner.


Dinesh D’Souza

“I consider the original crime in this case is an insight issue,” Berman continued. “That Mr. D’Souza committed this crime involves a colossal failure of insight and introspection. The case notes also say Mr. D’Souza has weaknesses in controlling his own impulses and that he is prone to anger in reaction to criticism.”

The judge noted the psychologists “chart indicates Mr. D’Souza tends to deny problems, that he lacks insight into his own behavior, that he is arrogant and intolerant of the feelings of others, while projecting an overly positive image of himself.”

“Therefore, I am ordering Mr. D’Souza to continue psychological counseling with another therapist,” said Berman.

“Therapy is more of an art than a science, and a new therapist may be what is needed in this case,” he said.

Berman ruled the sentencing requirement for weekly psychological counseling would be re-examined at the next sentencing review hearing, scheduled for Oct. 8 at 11:30 a.m. in his Manhattan courtroom.

Five years of teaching English required

As WND reported Monday, Berman ruled that D’Souza’s sentence requiring him to spend eight hours per week teaching English to Spanish-speaking students applying for U.S. citizenship was meant to be coterminous with his “supervised release,” or parole.

“I’m certain I would never have imposed a community service requirement to end with the community detention,” Berman said, rejecting an argument Brafman made that the original sentencing order was ambiguous.

Berman also rejected Brafman’s argument that a five-year community service requirement to teach English to Spanish-speakers was onerous, taking into account that D’Souza had no prior criminal record and that his crime, while a felony, was committed at a particularly stressful time of his life, while he was in the midst of a difficult divorce settlement.

In previous court appearances, Brafman had argued D’Souza’s crime, while admittedly a felony under federal law, was reflective more of an oversight involving a relatively small sum of money, not indicative of serious criminal malicious intent.

‘A real sentence in every respect’

D’Souza’s attorney, Brafman, argued: “With Mr. D’Souza required to spend one day every week in community service, this sentence is a real impediment to pursuing full-time employment.”

Berman countered: “I intended this to be a real sentence in every respect. Mr. D’Souza pleaded guilty to a felony, and I believe at the time the initial sentence was announced, Mr. D’Souza was relieved he was not facing incarceration.”

Also at issue was D’Souza’s request to travel internationally to visit his 80-year-old mother in India and to visit his daughter at school in London.

Berman ruled that permission to travel internationally would be reconsidered at the Oct. 8 hearing, but D’Souza would be allowed to purchase his air tickets now, with the court assuming the Oct. 8 hearing will find him in full compliance with all aspects of his sentencing requirements.

While D’Souza is under no domestic travel restrictions, he must request court approval to travel internationally, and he is allowed to pick up his passport only 24 hours prior to departure. His passport must be surrendered to federal authorities 24 hours after the completion of his return flight.

Also at issue in the Oct. 8 hearing will be proof D’Souza has completed 416 hours teaching English by the end of September, as required under the mandate that he devote eight hours a week to it.

D’Souza is behind schedule because of difficulties finding an appropriate venue in San Diego.

He told WND in an interview last month that he has enjoyed teaching the English classes.

“I have become very attached to my students,” he said. “There are around 100 of them, in classes ranging from beginner to intermediate to advanced.”

He said many of them have now seen his film, “America,” which he gave to them as a Christmas present.

“They have gotten to know me and my situation,” he said. “And they are now huge fans. If you ran Obama against me with this group, I doubt he would get a single vote.”

Testing the Database of International Rehabilitation Research: using rehabilitation researchers to determine the usability of a bibliographic database

Heather L. Munger, M.L.S., Coordinator of Reference Services1

Author information ► Article notes ► Copyright and License information ►


Abstract

Objectives: This study tested the usability of the Database of International Rehabilitation Research, a bibliographic database developed by the Center for International Rehabilitation Research Information and Exchange (CIRRIE).

Methods: Potential users, i.e., rehabilitation researchers, were asked to participate in a usability study. Test questions were designed to represent common tasks performed in a bibliographic database. Participants were asked to think aloud during the test so that both their actions and comments could be recorded.

Results: This study identified common problems that participants had while searching the database and aspects of the database that needed improvement.

Conclusions: Usability testing proved to be an effective method for evaluating database effectiveness and user satisfaction. The method used provided valuable information about how the database searchers approached their searches as well as how they performed them.

Usability is a major consideration for end-user databases because the success of most users' searches depends, in part, on how usable the system is. The Oxford English Dictionary defines usable as “that may or can be used; capable of use” [1]. Evaluating the usability of a bibliographic database can be accomplished by employing usability testing methods. For the purpose of this usability test, rehabilitation researchers were observed completing common tasks performed in a bibliographic database.

INTRODUCTION

The Center for International Rehabilitation Research Information and Exchange (CIRRIE) at the University at Buffalo, State University of New York, is supported through a grant from the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR), Department of Education. The mission of CIRRIE is to facilitate the sharing of information and expertise in rehabilitation research between the United States and other countries. One of CIRRIE's primary objectives is the development and maintenance of a subscription-free bibliographic database of references to published reports of rehabilitation research conducted outside of the United States. To date, comprehensive searching of rehabilitation research has been very difficult for a variety of reasons, including selective coverage of rehabilitation literature by existing databases, the breadth and interdisciplinary nature of the field, and the fact that existing relevant databases are not accessible to all in the research community. The CIRRIE Database of International Rehabilitation Research* complements the National Rehabilitation Information Center's database REHABDATA, which consists of disability and rehabilitation research that has been published within the United States.

By the spring of 2001, the bibliographic database had been developed, the interface designed and implemented, and the decision made to test its usability. At that point, CIRRIE staff contacted the author, who had conducted other usability studies and was unaffiliated with CIRRIE. This paper reports the application of the principles of usability testing to the CIRRIE Database of International Rehabilitation Research.

A randomized controlled trial (or randomized control trial;[2] RCT) is a type of scientific (often medical) experiment, where the people being studied are randomly allocated one or other of the different treatments under study. The RCT is often considered the gold standard for a clinical trial. RCTs are often used to test the efficacy or effectiveness of various types of medical intervention and may provide information about adverse effects, such as drug reactions. Random assignment of intervention is done after subjects have been assessed for eligibility and recruited, but before the intervention to be studied begins.

ALARM SOUNDED ON GOVERNMENT'S 'GENETICS' SURVEY  CONSTITUTIONAL LAWYER : 'I FIND THIS VERY TROUBLING'

Published: 5 days ago

Bob Unruh

http://www.wnd.com/author/runruh/?archive=true
Bob Unruh joined WND in 2006 after nearly three decades with the Associated Press, as well as several Upper Midwest newspapers, where he covered everything from legislative battles and sports to tornadoes and homicidal survivalists. He is also a photographer whose scenic work has been used commercially.




A veteran and constitutional attorney who is suing the Veterans Administration for threatening to deprive some returning troops of their 2nd Amendment rights after classifying them as mentally incompetent is warning his fellow veterans of a new VA program designed to extract personal information that could be used against them.

The Million Veterans Program is a voluntary research program funded by the VA that is supposedly designed to study veterans’ genetics and health, writes attorney Michael Connelly, the executive director of the United States Justice Foundation

But Connelly warns that the veterans “are asked to not only provide information on their physical health, but also their mental and emotional health, and that of their family members.”

The request is significant, he contends, because of the VA’s distribution of letters to certain veterans, as WND was first to report, warning they could be declared incompetent, assigned an advocate to handle their affairs and stripped of their 2nd Amendment rights. The letters are the target of Connelly’s lawsuit.

Connelly said much of the information the Million Veterans Program wants is “similar to what the VA is using to have veterans declared incompetent to handle their own financial affairs and then have their names placed on the NCIS list by the FBI so the veterans cannot own or purchase firearms due to a ‘mental defect.’”

“As a veteran and constitutional lawyer I find this very troubling,” he said. “I encourage all of my fellow veterans to carefully read this questionnaire and consider whether you can reap any benefits from participating in this program. Proceed cautiously and consider the possible implications to your constitutional rights.”

It’s the same administration that in 2009 warned that “returning veterans possess combat skills and experience that are attractive to rightwing extremists.”

The 2009 report from the Department of Homeland Security was called “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment.” It also said Obama’s governmental managers were “concerned that rightwing extremists will attempt to recruit and radicalize returning veterans in order to boost their violent capabilities.”

USJF got involved when it received a copy of a letter from the Portland VA Medical Center to a veteran. The letter warned the vet that “evidence indicates that you are not able to handle your VA benefit payments because of a physical or mental condition.”

“We propose to rate you incompetent for VA purposes. This means we must decide if you are able to handle your VA benefit payments. We will base our decision on all the evidence we already have including any other evidence you sent to us.”

The VA also warned: “A determination of incompetency will prohibit you from purchasing, possessing, receiving, or transporting a firearm or ammunition. If you knowingly violate any of these prohibitions, you may be fined, imprisoned, or both.”

The letter was signed by K. Kalama, Veterans Service Center manager in the Oregon Department of Veterans Affairs. But it didn’t present the evidence, the source of the evidence or even why the veteran’s competency was questioned.

‘Any emotional problems?’

The stated aim of the Million Veterans Program, or MVP, from the VA’s research and development branch, is to “better understand how genes affect health and illness.”

It may, the VA tells veterans, uncover “family health conditions of which you were not aware.”

The program achieves that aim through collecting genetic samples and health information.

The risks are similar to the risks of taking of blood samples, the VA says, and there is “a slight risk of a breach of confidentiality.”

Heritage, income and family components are part of MVP’s questionnaire.

It also asks: “During the past 4 weeks, were you limited in the kind of work you do or other regular activities as a result of any emotional problems (such as feeling depressed or anxious)?”

“How much of the time during the past 4 weeks have you felt calm and peaceful?” it continues.

“During the past 4 weeks, how much of the time has your physical health or emotional problems interfered with your social activities (like visiting with friends, relatives, etc.)?”

Participant also must rate their “emotional health” and whether they have felt “downhearted and blue.”

The questionnaire has an entire section asking about “mental health disorders.”

It also has detailed inquiries regarding parental and sibling health.

After WND reported on the program to classify veterans as unstable, dozens of people, including the local sheriff, gathered outside a Navy veteran’s home in Idaho over concerns authorities would confiscate his weapons. The public protest caught the attention of Associated Press.

Veteran Affairs spokesman Bret Bowers told AP the agency doesn’t have the authority to confiscate weapons, but as WND has reported, it can notify federal law enforcement agencies when such letters are issued that a particular person needs to be added to the national gun-ban list.

A similar plan was being considered for recipients of Social Security, the Los Angeles Times said recently. The paper said the Obama administration is pushing to ban Social Security beneficiaries from owning guns if they “lack the mental capacity to manage their own affairs.”

Others could be targeted

Connelly told WND that if the government restricts Social Security recipients, there will be other targets soon.

“They could go after student loan recipients. What about people getting food stamps? Medicaid? Potentially anybody working for any government contractor,” he warned.

He said he’s been warning on his blog since earlier this year that the Social Security move was coming.

He said the government was using veterans “as guinea pigs to develop methods that can be used to steal their constitutional rights.”

“Veterans get the letter from the VA telling them that because of physical or mental disabilities they are going to be declared incompetent to handle their own financial affairs, and the VA will appoint a fiduciary for them. The veterans are given 60 days to prove they are competent, which is a direct violation of the due process clause of the Constitution that requires the burden of proof be on the government,” he wrote.

“In none of the cases that we know of has there been an adjudication process with a hearing before a judge or an administrative judge. Nor have the veterans in most cases been examined by a psychiatrist, psychologist or even an MD,” he continued. “[Then Attorney General]-Eric Holder decided that anyone who works for the VA can declare veterans incompetent for any reason including having their bills paid automatically out of their bank accounts.”

Lately, he reported, some veterans “have never gotten any letter or official notification from the VA. They find out they are on the NCIS list when they try to purchase a firearm. Often they can’t even find out why they are on the list.”

His organization’s legal fight so far includes the VA, the FBI, the Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security.

A Department of Veterans Affairs spokesman has told WND the letters to veterans were no more than routine. But questions about why the letters are being sent, what evidence is used to determine a veteran is incapable of managing his or her affairs, who provides that information and why it is provided remain unanswered.

Read the letter that got the investigation started:

ONR'S MOVER TECHNOLOGY : IMPROVING THEREPY FOR BRAIN INJURY PATIENTS

Story Number: NNS150917-04Release Date: 9/17/2015 10:16:00 AM 

By Warren Duffie, Office of Naval Research

ARLINGTON, Va. (NNS) -- The Office of Naval Research is supporting efforts to develop a new technology, dubbed Mobile, Virtual Enhancements for Rehabilitation (MOVER), to provide brain injury patients with a safe, engaging and easy way to maintain their therapy regimens, Sept. 16.

"This type of technology is crucial to ensuring our warfighters are well taken care of in the defense of our freedoms," said Chief of Naval Research Rear Adm. Mat Winter. "Our advanced research efforts in health, fitness, resilience and medical recovery of our Sailors and Marines are among the most important aspects of ONR's mission."

For warfighters recovering from traumatic brain injuries (TBI), the benefits of home-based, outpatient physical rehabilitation programs are numerous-they can exercise at home on their own schedules, be among family and friends and spend less time in treatment facilities.

Regular physical therapy can keep tendons and joints flexible, maintain bodily strength and improve balance and walking ability. Unfortunately, because of confusion about exercises, forgetfulness or feelings of helplessness, many TBI patients don't perform their independent therapy-or they do it improperly. Consequently, they don't make steady progress toward a full recovery, and even risk further injury.

Enter MOVER. MOVER is a software system that can be installed on any laptop or PC equipped with a camera function. When operating MOVER, a user just turns on the computer and camera, stands still and the software maps out a virtual "skeleton" on screen. This skeleton consists of brightly colored lines and shapes-mirroring the person's movements through each therapy exercise.

To increase screen visibility, users can connect MOVER to a television with a Microsoft Kinect sensor. During workout sessions, users receive coaching in the form of pop-up text boxes or color shading in a certain area of the virtual skeleton.

For example, if someone is leaning too far right, a colored shape will appear on the left side of the screen, highlighting where and how to correct.

"Eventually, we want to improve the virtual coaching so it provides commands and encouragement to users vocally and they in turn can respond back," said Dr. James Niehaus, a scientist at Charles River Analytics Inc., the lead company working with ONR to develop the MOVER software. He also hopes to one day create a mobile app that would enable smartphones to alert users about workout times without the need to set an alarm manually.

"There are times when you don't feel motivated to work out," said Lt. Cmdr. Brent Olde, a program officer in the Human and Bio-Engineered Systems division of ONR's Warfighter Performance Department. "You also risk hurting yourself by exercising incorrectly. That applies to everyone, healthy or not. Now imagine how much harder it is for someone with a brain injury. They may need help, which is where MOVER comes in."

Potential MOVER users would be approved by their physical therapists according to individual capability and mobility, tech savviness and even video game experience. The exercises featured in the software are standard for TBI therapy, including lunges, knee raises and squats.

Patients would meet with their therapists at the beginning of a week to design a customized weekly exercise schedule and review their progress, which is tracked by MOVER. MOVER so far has been successfully tested by researchers.

Later this year, Niehaus will launch a six-month, on-site pilot study of the software among nearly 40 TBI patients and therapists at Boston-based Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital. If that goes well, he might initiate a home-based outpatient test study among other participants.

The MOVER work aligns with the Naval S&T Strategy, which emphasizes health and resilience as key components of warfighter performance. Last year, ONR hosted a Focus Area Forum to discuss how science and technology can improve warfighter performance and resilience. Warren Duffie is a contractor for ONR Corporate Strategic Communications.

USING META-ANALYSIS TO DETERMINE THE MOST EFFECTIVE TREATMENTS FOR POSTRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER

Oct. 22, 2015; 1-2:30 p.m. (ET)

This webinar will review the current guidelines for the treatment of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) at all points in the treatment continuum. It will highlight the significant areas where current major guidelines (VA/DoD, WHO, NICE, APA and ISTSS) are not in agreement including medications versus therapy, individual medications and behavioral therapies. The presenter will discuss variances in the evaluation of data that resulted in these differences and will review an evaluation of current studies in the form of four meta-analyses looking at more than17,000 citations for best evidence-based treatment.

Webinar participants will be able to:
  • Restate the current guidelines for the treatment of PTSD
  • Differentiate between the current evidence for medication versus behavioral therapy as evidence-based treatment
  • Identify medications with the best evidence supporting their use for PTSD
  • Compare behavioral therapies with the best evidence supporting their use for PTSD

SCIENTISTS CLAIM THEY CAN CHANGE A CHRISTIAN'S BELIEF IN GOD WITH MAGNETS

Geoffrey Grider | October 14, 2015 http://www.nowtheendbegins.com/blog/?p=36405#comments

A bizarre experiment with magnets claims to be able to make Christians no longer believe in God and make Britons open their arms to migrants in experiments some may find a threat to their values.
 
“O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called:” 1 Timothy 6:20 (KJV)

Scientists looked at how the brain resolves abstract ideological problems. Using a technique called transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), researchers safely shut down certain groups of neurones in the brains of volunteers.

TMS, which is used to treat depression, involves placing a large electromagnetic coil against the scalp which creates electric currents that stimulate nerve cells in the region of the brain involved in mood control.

Researchers found the technique radically altered religious perceptions and prejudice.
 
Belief in God was reduced almost by a third, while participants became 28.5 per cent less bothered by immigration numbers. Dr Keise Izuma, from the University of York, said: “People often turn to ideology when they are confronted by problems.



“We wanted to find out whether a brain region that is linked with solving concrete problems, like deciding how to move one’s body to overcome an obstacle, is also involved in solving abstract problems addressed by ideology.”

The scientists targeted the posterior medial frontal cortex, a brain region a few inches up from the forehead that is associated with detecting and responding to problems.

Volunteers were asked to rate their belief in God, heaven, the devil, and hell after undergoing pre-screening to ensure that they held religious convictions.
 
Dr Izuma said: “We decided to remind people of death because previous research has shown that people turn to religion for comfort in the face of death.

“As expected, we found that when we experimentally turned down the posterior medial frontal cortex, people were less inclined to reach for comforting religious ideas despite having been reminded of death.”

The American participants were also shown two essays written by newly arrived immigrants – one highly complimentary of the US and the other extremely critical.

Dr Izuma said: “When we disrupted the brain region that usually helps detect and respond to threats, we saw a less negative, less ideologically motivated reaction to the critical author and his opinions.”

The research, published in the journal Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience, suggests our brains use the same basic mental pathways to solve practical problems such as following directions or ideological issues such as immigration and religion.

Lead author Dr Colin Holbrook, form the the University of California at Los Angeles, said: “These findings are very striking, and consistent with the idea that brain mechanisms that evolved for relatively basic threat-response functions are re-purposed to also produce ideological reactions.”

I work in a private practice and I needed the support and a way to integrate my Catholic spirituality. I have found all the knowledge, support and prayer that I have needed in this conference and I will be back. I am so glad that God opened the door when I asked and He answered by showing me the CPA."

CPA Background: About ten years ago a few Catholic therapists started meeting together to mutually support each other living out their Catholic faith in their professional work.

They delighted in finding other like-minded therapists who had a similar dream of finding, networking, and applying their Catholic faith to their profession. They then formed the Catholic Psychotherapy Association and currently have about 200 members. Members enjoy networking with other Catholic therapists, opportunities for conferences and continuing education units, and receiving prayer support and wisdom from other therapists.

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 10, 2016

…..and you, the US taxpayer, will be paying for it! (or else!)

An estimated 1000-2000 of the coming 10,000 Syrians could need (costly!) mental health treatment!

Here is the AP story at ABC News (emphasis is mine):

For the thousands of Syrian refugees expected to arrive in the U.S. in coming months, the first order of business will be securing the basics — health care, jobs, education and a safe home.

But what organizations helping resettle them might not be prepared for, and what refugees themselves might be in denial about, is the need to treat the mental scars of war, experts said.

[….]

Organizations that work with refugees said it’s too early to assess the full scope of arrivals’ mental health needs. But experts say it’s important to keep tabs on the emotional state of new arrivals, since symptoms may not appear until months or years later — well after most resettlement support services have ended. [It is all on the community then which must come up with the $$$ for all of this care!—ed]

The U.S. has taken about 2,500 Syrian refugees since the conflict there began in 2011, including about 100 in Massachusetts. The Obama administration expects to take in at least 10,000 in the federal fiscal year that began in October. Experts estimate 10 to 20 percent of incoming Syrians will have war-related psychological problems warranting treatment.




At about two years after arrival reality hits and mental health problems appear according to Dr. Richard Mollica at Harvard. Photo and bio: http://www.williamjames.edu/about/profiles/faculty/richard-mollica.cfm

“They’re in the honeymoon phase,” said Richard Mollica, a psychiatry professor at Harvard Medical School who has spent decades working with torture and genocide victims. “In the first year, they’re so happy to be out of that situation. They feel something wonderful is going to happen in America.

And “wonderful” doesn’t come and that is where I believe the mental health crisis begins!  

The streets are not paved with gold, they have to work (find work!) and the mythical city of El Dorado is just that, a myth. Many will want to go home.
“It’s only about two years later or so when there’s a mental health crisis,” he said. “It’s at that point that reality hits and they really need a lot of mental health care.” And get this!  If you don’t take care of their mental health they could turn into Islamic terrorists!
Failure to address them could lead some refugees to withdraw from society, increasing the chances they’ll be drawn to extremist groups, Arnetz [Michigan professor] warned.

Some good news!  Syrians are only trickling into the US and at the present rate, Obama won’t get to that magic 10,000 by September 30th (the end of the 2016 fiscal year).  See numbers (so far) here.  I’m guessing the security screening is going very slowly.

For ambitious readers we have 289 previous posts in our ‘health issues’ category (refugees have a lot of health issues!).

MENTAL HEALTH FOR ALL BY INVOLVING ALL | VIKRAM PATEL | TED Talks

The Jesuit propaganda for the coming global change of humanity.



VIDEO : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yzm4gpAKrBk

Nearly 450 million people are affected by mental illness worldwide. In wealthy nations, just half receive appropriate care, but in developing countries, close to 90 percent go untreated because psychiatrists are in such short supply. Vikram Patel outlines a highly promising approach -- training members of communities to give mental health interventions, empowering ordinary people to care for others.

WELCOME TO THE FUTURE : SCIENTISTS TAKE MIND CONTROL TO A WHOLE NEW LEVEL


Their real agenda to control the slaves
 
Nate fft2127

3 days ago

Mind control is one of humanities worst nightmares. There are many different ways that mind control is used actively today, all of which have to do with psychology. For starters, the world is under a mass blanket of brainwashing, and this is used by governments, corporations, and other organizations to keep a populace at bay. The many methods of mind control used range from television, to hypnosis, and to satanic rituals. However, science is actively becoming a growing facilitator of such “practice.” In fact, scientists are seeking ways to expand the field of mind control. Which of course they claim it is for the benefit of humanity.

While many will claim it’s conspiracy, in reality, scientists are actively looking for ways to remotely control mice, by remote-controlled brain implant devices. Which are attached to the brains of mice through surgery, and then the implants administer drugs, as well as the scientists then control the mice through flashing lights. The lights effect the neurons in the brain. Through the implant the scientist can control the mouses movements, directions, and track every step taken from a neurological level. This is one prime example of what science can do with mind control. Another, which took place in 2012 would be when scientists hijacked a worm’s brain. The scientists genetically engineered the microscopic worm to make its neurons sensitive to light. Upon which, they found out that they could control its movements through stimuli projected into its brain. Still think genetic modification and designer babies are a good idea?

These are just some of the examples that science is now playing a role in mind control. However, there is a lot more to be discussed on this particular topic; it is so vast that this is only the beginning. In this day and age, such science is not considered fringe, it is considered as beneficial to medicine. This type of science is deemed to be the future; when in reality it is the past. The very dark past, this is Nazi Germany’s reemergence into humanity, only this time; it is welcomed.

In this report we will be covering:
  • The newest scopes of mind control
  • Why are scientists now attempting to bridge the Bio-Electronic divide?
  • Who will profit from these abominable acts?
  • Who will fall victim to the new methods of mind control?
  • What is the spiritual motive behind this?
  • How it will be done and some potential solutions.

CANADA IS READY TO LET MDs KILL THE MENTALLY ILL

By this change, no need of the dead penalty for the so call terrorist black list who will be considered as mentally ill.

February 26, 2016


The term “culture of death” describes a society that accepts suicide and mercy killing as an acceptable response to suffering. In the wake of the country’s Supreme Court creating a right to be made dead, Canada’s ruling class, medical intelligentsia — and if polls are to be believed — population have enthusiastically embraced the culture of death (culture de la mort) for people with physical maladies and disabilities.

Now an official government panel has issued recommendations that urge lethal-injection euthanasia and self-administered assisted suicide (“medical aid in dying,” or MAID) be also a right for the diagnosed mentally ill. From the Report of the Special Joint Committee on Physician-Assisted Dying:
Citation:


The Committee recognizes that there will be unique challenges in applying the eligibility criteria for MAID where the patient has a mental illness, particularly where such an illness is the condition underlying the request. However, where a person is competent and fits the other criteria set out by law, the Committee does not see how that individual could be denied a recognized Charter right based on his or her mental health condition.


Not only that, but the Committee recommended that the mentally ill suicidal — as with all other categories — should be entitled to decide for themselves whether their suffering requires killing:

 KERRY SAYS HE NEEDS AN EVALUATION BEFORE CLAIMING THERE IS A CHRISTIAN GENOCIDE GOING ON IN THE MIDDLE EAST

A code message from the Vice-president John Kerry for what's coming for all citizens in America. It's on the agenda they're talking now. This evaluation of each citizen will open the door for the brain chip. The ones who will refuse this chip will be arrest and could be receive a death sentence.

OBAMA TO FORCE MARK OF THE BEAST TEST ON ALL 12 Y/O + In U.S. SOON! THE WORLD IS NEXT!



VIDEO : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=32o04EH_Y98



Suzanne Hamner February 25, 2016

Is there anyone over the age of 40 who doesn't know what the Holocaust was? The Holocaust was the systematic extermination of the Jewish population of Germany and Europe perpetrated by Hitler's Nazi Germany. This deplorable action was dubbed "crimes against humanity" and genocide. Is there anyone in this nation who doesn't understand genocide or crimes against humanity? Unfortunately, there is and he serves as the Secretary of State.

At a House Appropriations Subcommittee on the Department of State and Foreign Assistance, Secretary of State John "Swiftboat" Kerry told the subcommittee members he was having an "additional evaluation" completed to "help him determine whether the systematic murder of Christians and other religious minorities in the Middle East – at the hands of the Islamic State and others – should be declared 'genocide'." Kerry told the subcommittee, "I will make a decision on it as soon as I have that additional evaluation and we will proceed forward from there."

Seriously? Talk about being a dumb-bum. Kerry just elevated the bar in reaching dumb-bumness. Many can understand young adults under the age of 35 not knowing about genocide, crimes against humanity or any of the events occurring in World War II Nazi Germany that led to these designations because of the liberal rewriting of history. Moreover, most of these young adults do not have the motivation to educate themselves on issues and history – a flaw that contributes to their dumb-bum attitudes and behaviors in general, much less garnering any information concerning genocide. Kerry has absolutely no excuse whatsoever.

According to CNSnews.com:
Citation:


Kerry was responding to a question put to him by Rep. Jeff Fortenberry (R.-Neb.), who is the sponsor of a resolution that would declare on behalf of Congress that it is in fact genocide.

The resolution expresses "the sense of Congress that those who commit or support atrocities against Christians and other ethnic and religious minorities, including Yezidis, Turkmen, Sabea-Mandeans, Kaka'e, and Kurds, and who target them specifically for ethnic or religious reasons, are committing, and are hereby declared to be committing, 'war crimes,' 'crimes against humanity,' and 'genocide.'"

As a preface to his question, Fortenberry told Kerry about a young Syrian man who had been murdered by jihadists after refusing to renounce his Christian faith.

"I had the extraordinary privilege of being in the room with Pope Francis when he, in a very powerful moment, was given a small cross, a Christian crucifix," said Fortenberry. "That crucifix had belonged to a young Syrian man who had been captured by the jihadists, and he was told to choose: Convert or die. And he chose his ancient faith tradition. He chose Christ, and he was beheaded."

"His mother was able to recover the body, recover this cross, and bury him," said Fortenberry. "She fled to Austria, which set the stage for this moment which I witnessed."

"Mr. Secretary, this is repeating itself over and over and over again against Christians, Yazidis, and other religious minorities in the region," said Fortenberry.

"What I'm urging here today," said Fortenberry, "is that you use the authority and power of your office to call this genocide, to help restore the rich tapestry of the ancient faith traditions in the Middle East, to stop this assault on human dignity and civilization itself."




Kerry confirmed he was considering declaring the systematic extermination of religious minorities in the Middle East by the Islamic State as genocide; but, he needed further evaluation before doing so.

Kerry told the subcommittee, "I share just a huge sense of revulsion over these acts, obviously. "None of us have ever seen anything like it in our lifetimes. Although, obviously, if you go back to the Holocaust, the world has seen it. We are currently doing what I have to do, which is review very carefully the legal standards and precedents for whatever judgment is made."

The full exchange between Fortenberry and Kerry is below.

Citation:

Fortenberry: Mr. Secretary, I had the extraordinary privilege of being in the room with Pope Francis when he, in a very powerful moment, was given a small cross, a Christian crucifix. That crucifix had belonged to a young Syrian man who had been captured by the jihadists, and he was told to choose: Convert or die. And he chose his ancient faith tradition. He chose Christ, and he was beheaded.

His mother was able to recover the body, recover this cross, and bury him. And she fled to Austria, which set the stage for this moment which I witnessed.

Mr. Secretary, this is repeating itself over and over and over again against Christians, Yazidis, and other religious minorities in the region. In 2004, Colin Powell, when he was secretary of state, came before Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and I believe you served on that committee at that point, and declared what was happening in Darfur to be a genocide.

There are 200 members of Congress in a bi-partisan fashion, we've put our names on a resolution that is forthcoming that declares this genocide. There is a growing international consensus in this regard. The European Parliament has passed something similar. The U.S. Catholic Bishops, Pope Francis has spoken out, Hillary Clinton has called it such, Marco Rubio, the international association of genocide scholars.

I want a note as well a word of thanks to you and President Obama for the quick action on Mount Sinjar that actually saved the lives of women and children, countless persons who would have been wiped out and victimized.

So, what I'm urging here today is that you use the authority and power of your office to call this genocide, to help restore the rich tapestry of the ancient faith traditions in the Middle East, to stop this assault on human dignity and civilization itself. And to set potentially the conditions that we are all hoping and praying for that re-establishes stability and reintegration of these ancient faith traditions into the fabric of the communities in the Middle East entirely.

I think the stability, the future stability, of the entire region depends upon this.

Kerry: Well again Congressman thank you for a very moving and eloquent description of the problem. And I appreciate, you were lucky to be in that room to witness that, and I certainly appreciate your reactions to it. And I share just a huge sense of revulsion over these acts, obviously. None of us have ever seen anything like it in our lifetimes. Although, obviously, if you go back to the Holocaust, the world has seen it.

We are currently doing what I have to do, which is review very carefully the legal standards and precedents for whatever judgment is made. I can tell you we are doing that. I have had some initial recommendations made to me. I have asked for some further evaluation. And I will make a decision on this. And I will make a decision on it as soon as I have that additional evaluation and we will proceed forward from there.

I understand how compelling it is. Christians have been moved in many parts now of the Middle East, I might add. This is not just in Syria, but in other places there has been an increased forced evacuation and displacement, which is equally disturbing, though it's not—you know, they aren't killing them in that case, but it's a removal, and a cleansing ethnically and religiously, which is deeply disturbing. So we are very much focused on this. And, as I say, I will make a judgement soon.

Fortenberry: They have taken the conditions for life as well as life away from Christians, Yazidis, and religious minorities. And I bring up the declaration by former Secretary of State Colin Powell to demonstrate the power that the declaration actually has, because in doing so he helped put a stop to that grim reality there in Darfur.  

I know you share deep sympathies in this regard. I just urge you, and plead with you, partner with us. There is a growing consensus that this is not only true and real but I think, again, it sets the condition for whatever the future settlement we have to have. 



Most everyone would agree it doesn't take a doctorate in rocket science to declare the systematic extermination of individuals practicing religions other than Islam as genocide or crimes against humanity. In the tradition of Hitler's Nazi Germany, the Islamic State enslaves, tortures and murders those who will not convert to Islam. What is so difficult for Kerry to understand that he needs an "additional evaluation" to call a spade a spade? More than likely, it is the political correctness bull manure that is guiding "His Supreme Dumb-bumness" in his decision-making process. Is it any wonder this nation is the laughing stock and backside of jokes the world over? All one has to do is look at the Secretary of State and his boss to answer that question.

Does anyone actually believe he was repulsed by the acts committed by these Muslim barbarians after his actions in Vietnam on a Navy swift boat? Hardly. He doesn't want to admit guilt. Calling the crimes of the Islamic State what they are – genocide – is long overdue by Congress and this administration. However, what can one expect of traitors? The organization committing these atrocities are the same individuals the united States created, backed, supported, and provided equipment under the guise of arming the non-existent rebels fighting against Assad in Syria. By officially calling the IS actions genocide, it is a good as admitting their guilt.

FEDS RECOMMEND MANDATORY PSYCHIATRIC EVALUATIONS FOR ALL AMERICANS



VIDEO : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ql4GI0FVoFA

Written by: Suzanne Hamner
Published on: February 27, 2016

At this point in time, the Constitution for the united States of America is very close to ruin. In some areas, the administration and Congress have already shredded much of it. All that is left is a few individual God-given unalienable rights for the government to usurp away and this nation as a free republic ceases to exist. While many citizens of this great nation seethe in anger and focus on the dog and pony show 2016 presidential candidate nominee debates by both parties, this administration is moving rapidly closer to infringing on the one right through the back door that will leave this nation’s citizenry defenseless – the Second Amendment.

With the government gaining control over the health care insurance agency, it has the power to make the rules on what is mandatory to have concerning coverage as well as what evaluations every individual is mandated to have according to the core coverage requirements. According to Infowars.com, “Next time you visit your doctor, be careful how you respond to his questions, or you may just be branded “mentally ill” and subjected to “treatment.”

That is because a panel advising the Obama administration, in partnership with Big Psychiatry, wants to make doctors subject all American adults and children over age 12 to screening for alleged “mental health” disorders — particularly depression, at least to start with. Then, anyone found to harbor any alleged mental disorder, including children as young as eight, should undergo “therapy,” often including powerful psychotropic medications that experts say have dubious value but often come with well-documented and highly dangerous side effects.

Remember, this will not be optional. Obamacare health plans will be forced to cover the service and pay for it. While the panel is limiting coverage to children over age 12, one can take to the bank the age requirement will go lower and lower for mental health evaluations and “behavioral health services,” whether you as a parent want it or not. There will be no choice in the government’s eyes – agree or face the wrath of Big Brother.


School teachers, social workers, and more are all already being enlisted in the federal government’s search for supposed ‘mental and behavioral health’ issues — a list that is perpetually expanding as psychiatrists invent new ‘illnesses’.” Naturally, this could be a back door into gun control and confiscation, as well as denying future adults the right to keep and bear arms due to having a mental disorder or illness.

Pick up Bradlee Dean's powerful testimony, illustrated by former DC Comics artist Danny Bulanadi, in the Sons of Liberty Store .

The American Psychiatric Association relies heavily on the DSM-V and has added new “mental health disorders” that would include American patriots, such as Oppositional Defiance Disorder (ODD), while removing disorders such as homosexuality. This “listing” is entirely subjective and constantly expanding “as psychiatrists vote to create new ones, literally, as part of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual — the ‘Bible’ of psychiatry that has been widely criticized, even by leading psychiatrists.” All health care insurance plans are required to conform to the minimum standards of mandatory coverage of Obamacare. Whether you want it or not, Big Brother will subject you to a mental health evaluation as well as your children over the age of 12.

However, the ACA did leave the door open to include children under the age of 12.

The New American reports:

The latest demands come from the United States Preventive Services Task Force, or USPSTF. The influential outfit, appointed by the Obama administration’s increasingly radical Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), recommends various unconstitutional federal health policies for Big Brother to decree into pseudo-law via regulation.

Its latest recommendations for children and adolescents 12 and older were published earlier this month in the Annals of Internal Medicine. “The USPSTF recommends screening for major depressive disorder (MDD) in adolescents aged 12 to 18 years,” the HHS task force said in the summary of its position. “Screening should be implemented with adequate systems in place to ensure accurate diagnosis, effective treatment, and appropriate follow-up.”

The outfit also left the door open for recommending such “screening” for children under 12, too. “The USPSTF concludes that the current evidence is insufficient to assess the balance of benefits and harms of screening for MDD in children aged 11 years and younger,” the Obama HHS panel wrote. The recommendations also call for using controversial medications such as Prozac to drug children between 12 and 17, while advocating powerful psychotropic substances such as Lexapro for children as young as eight.

In the movie, Prozac Nation, based on the book of the same name by Elizabeth Wurtzel, “We are living in a Prozac nation – the united States of Depression.” How apt and appropriate that statement will be when the “mandatory” evaluations for mental illness begin in earnest. Big Pharma and Big Brother have tag-teamed the citizens in order to produce a nation of “pill poppers” easily controlled through psychotropic medication. Big Pharma gets richer as more of the citizens are medicated and Big Brother garners the ultimate control over a zombie population.

Many may not realize that one in 10 “American school-aged boys has been labelled and drugged under the guise of ‘Attention Deficit Disorder’ (ADD) and ‘Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder’ (ADHD). Known as the “father of the diagnosis,” the now deceased Dr. Leon Eisenberg admitted in an interview with German magazine Der Spiegel before his death that the supposed “disease” is a “prime example of a fabricated disorder.” American citizens are witness to more and more normal behaviors being listed as symptoms of “alleged “disorders, which critics claim is a troubling trend. The supposedly “independent advisory panel” wants to cast a much wider net.

The USPSTF recommends screening for depression in the general adult population, including pregnant and postpartum women,” said the outfit, which adds that its views should not be construed as the official position of the “Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality” or Obama’s HHS. “Screening should be implemented with adequate systems in place to ensure accurate diagnosis, effective treatment, and appropriate follow-up.”

In its “rationale” for recommending that all U.S. adults be screened for depression, the panel claims that the “illness” is “common in patients seeking care in the primary care setting.” It also cites “adequate evidence” allegedly showing some “improvements” if its advice is followed.

Not surprisingly, this “panel” downplays the risks cited by The New American as well as other sources – including Big Pharma and the government. “For instance, the panel admits that antidepressants are ‘associated’ with harms, including an increase in suicidal behavior, an increased risk of gastrointestinal bleeding, fetal harm, and more. But despite that, the task force ‘concludes with at least moderate certainty that there is a moderate net benefit’ to screening all American adults. And by all, the task force means all: ‘The USPSTF recommends screening in all adults regardless of risk factors,’ it said.”

Those who attempted to warn the citizenry about this unconstitutional Affordable Care Act were maligned as “heartless,” “uncaring,” and “selfish,” among more unsavory terms, because liberals accused those individuals of wanting to deny health care services to those without insurance. These individuals never stopped to truly evaluate Obamacare or review the information many gathered and presented to inform the public of the invasiveness and loss of control in an individual’s health care. Their only goal was the destruction of a free nation under the guise of an egalitarian utopia.

Although, there are individuals that claim to support the Constitution who accept and applaud “mandatory” health procedures – court ordered blood draws to determine whether someone is drunk driving comes to mind, court ordered colonoscopies, and roadside strip searches. Now, it will be mandatory for adults to endure a mental health illness evaluation. If you refuse, citing individual “rights,” you can be diagnosed with ODD, meaning you will become a member of the Prozac Nation. Your children will be subjected to the same, whether you agree or not. Congratulations.

The moment the government realizes individuals accept it crossing one line, the government invariably expands its authority, unlawfully, and crosses into all areas. We, the citizens of the united States, are witness to this expansion of totalitarianism.

The new mandatory evaluation will go along nicely with the “National Adult Immunization Plan” (NAIP) “to track Americans’ vaccination records, wage a massive propaganda campaign to ‘encourage’ more inoculations, and force more controversial vaccines on adults against their will. Critics noted the agenda includes eventually imposing vaccines at gunpoint.” Let that sink in for a moment. The government will impose vaccines upon you at gunpoint.

Violating and ignoring the Constitution comes at a price. The price is freedom, liberty, the pursuit of happiness and at times, life itself. It’s a high price to pay. Yet, many Americans are willing to pay that price. And, they are willing for you to pay it as well. The noose is tightening around the neck of freedom each day unconstitutional laws, such as Obamacare, and agencies like the Department of Health and Human Services are allowed to continue to exist. No authority is given to the federal government to mandate health care, mental health of its citizens or to establish unconstitutional agencies. Yet, it is being done. The threat is becoming clearer and the solution more urgent. If violations of the Constitution are allowed to continue, the United States will be the Prozac nation Elizabeth Wurtzel so declared and the United States of Depression will be the reality.

WOODSON AT HIMSS: COLLABORATION IN DATA IS KEY TO BETTER HEALTH

3/1/2016 By: Military Health System Communications Office 

Collaboration in information technology has played a major role in how the military moves from a system of health care to one of health

“It’s not what we’ve accomplished alone, but what we’ve accomplished in partnership,” with other groups working with the Military Health System (MHS) said Dr. Jonathan Woodson, assistant secretary of Defense for Health Affairs. 

Woodson made the remarks at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Health Information Technology (IT) conference in Las Vegas, March 1, 2016. He noted this gathering has become the largest health conference in the United States — overtaking other meetings, such as the American College of Surgeons annual conference — which proves the importance of health IT. The importance of health data is recognized by MHS, which is charged with creating resilience for the warfighters sent off to protect the country, Rolling Eyes improving their performance and making those who are wounded whole again. Woodson said the mining of data helps keep the military fit and ready for the fight.
 

“There’s an opportunity through data to drive improvements in not only how we care for individuals, but how we train, man and equip those individuals,” said Woodson. “We’re mining our research and development data to drive improvements in rehabilitation strategy. We need to integrate all we do across all the aspects of our missions and roles and functions in the Military Health System.”

Woodson pointed to the fact MHS has worldwide capabilities and serves as an enabler of global health engagement for the U.S. The lessons of almost 15 years of war increased knowledge on how to save lives, reflected in the fact that survivability rates from battlefield injuries are the highest in the history of warfare – more than 90 percent – despite the fact that those injuries are of unprecedented severity. In addition, health surveillance data helps keep warfighters from contracting diseases that would sideline them. These notable achievements were because of partnerships with civilian health organizations, such as HIMSS.

This came about by borrowing from the civilian community, ensuring we looked at every casualty, we measured the outcome, we developed the matrix and fed that information back into the system in near real time to improve the strategy for care. This is the power of data.”

Moving forward, MHS is focusing on the continuum of care long after those wounded have returned from the battlefield. The injuries suffered, while made more survivable because of the trauma systems put in place on the battlefield, also pose new issues of warfighters and their families living with those disabilities for years to come. Woodson said the quality of life for those affected is of major concern for him. Once again, managing data is playing a key role. He cited the new electronic health record (EHR), developed in concert with civilian health care and data organizations and being rolled out MHS-wide. The system will better connect information between MHS beneficiaries’ health records and the military and civilian hospitals and clinics where they receive care. Greater access to data will also help drive decisions to advance the larger goal of having patient-centered, data-driven access to better care.

Woodson reminded the audience of his earlier point of how the military has to be ready to go anywhere at a moment’s notice. The MHS system of data needs to be just as flexible.

“We’ve seen and heard about the stories of Paris, Beirut, Mali, Nigeria and many other places … where it seems the world is on fire,” said Woodson. “For those of us in the Military Health System, we’ve got to be prepared to go anywhere and integrate our information systems across those domains.”

As the country also moves forward with its own health priorities, such as the “moon-shot” effort to cure cancer, MHS will use its data to further national health goals. That effort includes working with civilian entities and federal agencies, such as the Department of Veterans Affairs, all along the way.

“The issue we have before us is an incredible opportunity. An opportunity that is, in fact, driven by data and by the collective wisdom of everyone in this room,” said Woodson. “In the Military Health System, we are very proud of what we do, but more proud of what we do in collaboration with others to advance medicine and strategies for care in this country.”

BONO TELLS HIMSS: TECHNOLOGY HELPED LEADERS ENGAGE PATIENTS ON ROAD TO MHS’ HIGH RELIABILITY

Navy Vice Adm. Raquel Bono, director of the Defense Health Agency, knows firsthand the journey to better health must be a partnership between health care professionals and their patients. Bono told her own story of not being believed by her doctor because of a lack of access to key information. Although she was a physician and hospital commander, Bono said she was doubted when she complained about a recurring problem because previous visits for the same issue weren’t in her records.

“It hurt my feelings,” said Bono. “I thought, ‘If that is happening to me, how many other people are experiencing that?’”

While addressing the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Health IT conference in Las Vegas, Bono said improved health IT within the Military Health System has the opportunity to change the experience for all health care recipients. She pointed out that during the past decade and a half of war, the U.S. military had the highest battlefield injury survival rate ever: more than 92 percent, despite the fact the injuries were also unprecedented in their severity.

But, when beneficiaries sought care back at their home stations, the level of satisfaction with the system dropped off.  After a series of news articles pointed out problems with how care was being delivered, the Secretary of Defense ordered a review of the entire MHS in 2014 to find out what was keeping military hospitals and clinics from performing at the level they should. Feedback from experts and patients, revealed barriers to access, quality and safety. Bono said information technology will play a critical role in the continuing process of making the MHS a high-reliability organization by providing a platform to track the vital data needed to make solid decisions. “It was important to make sure to capture what was of value to our patients.”

She told those gathered HIMSS the feedback process has led to prototype solutions, such as development of a document to help patients better engage with their orthopedic teams.

Moving forward, Bono said health IT systems will help improve communication between health care providers and patients.

“Our patient portal is going to be even more robust in creating that interface for the patient,” said Bono. “Because it’s not just about health care professionals being able to access and draw on the data. It’s being able for our patients to have equal access to that so they can be full participants in their own health care journey.”

MANDATORY MENTAL HEALTH SCREENING COMING SOON?



  By Tom Olago March 08, 2016

What if your next trip to the doctor's office resulted in your being dragged off kicking and screaming to the nearest mental asylum?

Yet all you did to warrant that unexpected fate was to answer a few short questions. At some point the doctor reviewing your responses then decides that you must be 'mentally ill', and need to be detained and treated "for your own safety and that of others".

As implausible as it may sound, it is being reported that normal people are at risk of just such treatment, based on developments in the U.S - primarily driven by governmental health agencies in conjunction with the psychiatric fraternity.

A recent report by Alex Newman for the newamerican.com explains why. A panel advising the Obama administration, in partnership with 'Big Psychiatry', wants to make doctors subject all American adults and children over age 12 to screening for alleged "mental health" disorders - particularly depression, at least to start with.

Then, anyone found to harbor any alleged mental disorder, including children as young as eight, should undergo "therapy," often including powerful psychotropic medications that experts say have dubious value but often come with well-documented and highly dangerous side effects.

Eventually, the hunt for alleged mental and behavior abnormalities is expected to focus more sharply as younger and younger children, school teachers, social workers and more are brought into the crosshairs of Big Brother.

Ron Paul, former congressman from Texas and a Senior Fellow at the Mises Institute also weighed in on the issue. Paul stated that the United States Preventive Services Task Force recently recommended mandatory depression screening for all Americans and planned to force health insurance companies to pay for the screening.

He argued that this move would raise the price of health insurance and would also require the government to create a database containing the results of the screenings. Paul argues that certain undesirable consequences are likely to follow:

- Anti-gun politicians who want to forbid anyone labeled "mentally ill" from owning a firearm will no doubt want to use this database as a tool to deprive individuals of their Second Amendment rights.

- Americans could possibly lose other rights simply because they happened to undergo their mandatory depression screening when they were coping with a loved one's passing or a divorce, or simply having a bad day. Thus, anyone mistakenly labeled as depressed will have to spend a great deal of time and money in what may be a futile attempt to get his rights back.

- Mandatory depression screening will endanger people's health by increasing the use of psychotropic drugs. These drugs often have dangerous side effects. Their use has even been linked to suicide. The fact that almost every mass shooter was on psychotropic drugs is another good reason to oppose any policy that will increase reliance on these medicines.

- The Preventive Services Task Force's mandatory depression screening mandate is based on the fallacy that diagnosing mental health problems is analogous to diagnosing cancer or diabetes. Even mental health professionals acknowledge that there is a great deal of subjectivity in mental health diagnoses.

- Government health care mandates undermine the basic principles of a free society. If it were legitimate for government to tell us what types of health care we must receive, then it would also be legitimate for the government to tell us what to eat, when to exercise, and even how to raise our children.

- Consider that until 1973 homosexuality was considered a mental disorder by the American Psychiatric Association. Today, some mental health professionals think that those who believe in limited government, free-market economics, or traditional values suffer from mental disorders. This could result in anyone with an unpopular political belief or lifestyle choice being labeled as "mentally ill."

Which raises the question - will Christians who oppose legalized homosexuality and the LGBT gamut, in general, be considered mentally ill or unfit? Who decides who is unfit and why? And what happens to any hope of fair and balanced assessments when many key decision-makers are unapologetically anti-Christian in their beliefs and inclinations?

Christians and other groups are easily labeled 'intolerant' due to their non-compromising beliefs and values that are so often at loggerheads with the ungodly principles espoused by their governments, such as homosexuality and abortion. These groups are therefore likely to find themselves most targeted for mental imbalance diagnoses if only to get them out of the way legally without having to deal with the thornier issues of human rights abuses and discrimination.

Therein lies a real danger  that mental health screening could easily provide a useful smokescreen to blacklist and incarcerate members of society seen to be 'intolerant' and 'non-compliant'.
