as important as appearance and yield'.
Below we see an article from 2004 letting us know THE GREEN REVOLUTION has created great harm in public health by killing nutrient values in real food tied to MONSANTO and global BIG AG BIG MEAT. REAL left social progressive academics saw this data back in 1990s. Above we see the goals of FAR-RIGHT WING GLOBAL BANKING 1% GREEN CORPORATION REVOLUTION----it is more important to have appearance and yield than nutritional content in produce.
Global banking 1% released this data in Bush-era to promote the need to take VITAMIN AND MINERAL SUPPLEMENTS just as our farmers having killed soil symbiosis for healthy crops were told to use double the fertilizer---fertilizer is oil oil is BUSH.
This article now tells us that the MEDICATIONS we take during the soaring growth of GLOBAL BIG PHARMA complicate vitamin and mineral uptake of what are already depleted MONSANTO BIG AG grown food.
WHY ARE US CITIZENS THE SICKEST IN DEVELOPED NATIONS? WE HAVE BEEN SLOWLY STARVED OF ORDINARY FOOD NUTRIENTS AND THIS DAMAGES OUR BODY ORGANS AND BIOCHEMISTRY.
NOW, global banking 1% are corrupting VEGAN to market manufactured foods all filled with substance our bodies will not absorb.
MAYO CLINIC AS ALL US MEDICAL CAMPUSES HAVE KNOWN THESE FAR-RIGHT 'GREEN' REVOLUTION POLICIES WERE KILLING PUBLIC HEALTH. Below we see MAYO CLINIC telling us in 2013 what we have known since 1990s.
We are shouting to our global 99% especially in third world nations having to eat this US SURPLUS food----and now global food corporations are 'donating' these new MANUFACTURED VEGAN foods -------you are not getting nutrients from these GREEN REVOLUTION foods and getting no nutrient value from today's manufactured VEGAN 'healthy' food.
Impoverished soils, impoverished crops
The depletion of the nutrient content of
our soils, through unsustainable agricultural
practices, results in the inevitable loss of nutr
ient value in our crops. Historical data shows
the average mineral content of vegetables grow
n in U.S. soils has dropped precipitously over
the last century.
Research published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition in 2004 found significant declines in the mineral and vitamin content of 43 garden crops grown in U.S. markets.
As well, an investigative report published by Life Extension Foundation demonstrated that the vitamin and mineral content of several foods dropped dramatically between 1963 and 2000. Collard greens showed a 62% loss of vitamin C, a 41% loss of vitamin A and a 29% loss of calcium. Potassium and magnesium were down 52% and 84% respectively. Cauliflower had lost almost one-half of its vitamin C, thiamine and riboflavin, and most of the calcium in commercial pineapples had disappeared.
According to the report, when asked to explain the precipitous drop in the calcium content observed in commercial corn, the U.S. Department of Agriculture replied that the 78% loss was not significant because “no one eats corn for calcium,” adding that the nutritional content of produce is not
as important as appearance and yield.
Ultimately, the goal of far-right wing ' GREEN REVOLUTION' with this FAKE VEGAN technology is to produce food for planetary mining slave colonies and space travel for several years and decades.
Please take a look at what we information we learned in high school-----to see what our bodies do with depleted intake of nutrients to see the disease vectors looking much like today's American public health status

Common Medications That Rob the Body of Nutrients
March 2, 2015 | Linda J. Dobberstein, Chiropractor, Board Certified in Clinical Nutrition
America is a nation of pill poppers. Mayo Clinic presented a study in 2013 that showed that nearly 7 out of 10 Americans take prescription drugs. More than half take two drugs. Senior citizens, 65 and older, take on average 14 or more prescription drugs per year. This creates a major concern with multiple prescriptions creating negative drug interactions.
Drugs can be life-saving in many circumstances. When they are required and managed well, they provide a purpose. Many times, however, drugs create insidious nutrient depletions, and rob the body of precious nutrients. The nutrient depletions induced by the drug often causes further loss of health. This is especially concerning for our senior citizens who take multiple medications. They are often handed a prescription to deal with the side effects of another prescription. Many times, the side effects are a result of the nutrients depleted from marginal nutritional health to begin with. Here are some things that you need to be aware.
Nutrient Depletions Caused by Top 10 Drugs in 2014
This is list of the top ten drugs in 2014 per number of prescriptions written.
1. Synthroid, 22.6 million
2. Crestor, 22.5 million
3. Nexium, 18.6 million
4. Ventolin HFA, 17.5 million
5. Advair Diskus, 15.0 million
6. Diovan, 11.4 million
7. Lantus Solostar, 10.1 million
8. Cymbalta, 10.0 million
9. Vyvanse, 10.0 million
10. Lyrica, 9.6 million
These top ten prescribed medications have the potential to create problematic nutritional challenges for the body. Here are the known nutrients stripped out and robbed from the body by these drugs.
1. Synthroid (Levothyroxine). This thyroid medication interferes with calcium causing it to be lost in the urine. Loss of calcium leads not only to osteoporosis, but also leads to muscle spasms, memory loss, hypertension, increased cancer risk, PMS, obesity, pregnancy complications, nerve impulses, hormone secretion negatively impacting insulin, increasing risk for diabetes and insulin resistance and poor beta cell function in the pancreas.
2. Crestor or statin drugs (HMG CoA Reductase Inhibitors). This type of cholesterol medication depletes coenzyme Q10 and interferes with vitamin K2 and selenium. Q10 is an essential antioxidant for energy production within the mitochondria. Heart, muscles, brain, cholesterol, cell membranes, blood vessels, blood pressure, pancreas, and nervous system function heavily rely on coenzyme Q10. Low vitamin D levels will make the muscle pain and adverse effects of statin drugs worse.
3. Nexium. This is the popular purple pill used to block stomach acid causing heart burn or GERD. Nexium, a proton pump inhibitor, is a monkey wrench in the digestive track because it blocks stomach acid production, which is vital to digestion of food. This change alters the whole process of digestion. Long-term use often creates dependency and further ingrains the malabsorption – nutrient depletion cycle. Proton pump inhibitors like Nexium are famous for depleting vitamin B12, folic acid, calcium, magnesium, but it also depletes iron, zinc, chromium, beta carotene and vitamin C. Anyone on long term use of Nexium is at risk. Other examples of common proton pump inhibitors include Prevacid, Omeprazole, and Protonix.
4. Ventolin HFA. This is also known as albuterol, a respiratory medication. Other common brand names include ProAir HFA, Proventil, Ventolin, and Proventil HFA. Albuterol is a short-acting, beta-adrenergic bronchodilator drug used for relief and prevention of bronchospasm or asthma. It is also used to prevent exercise-induced bronchospasm/asthma. This medication depletes calcium, magnesium, potassium and phosphate. These minerals are essential to maintaining open airways and functionality.
5. Advair. This respiratory drug is a combination of two active ingredients – salmeterol and fluticasone. Salmeterol is a type of long acting inhaler used for preventing exercise-induced bronchospasm or asthma. It is a beta agonist or long-acting, beta-adrenergic bronchodilator. Fluticasone is a type of corticosteroid used to treat inflammation of the lungs and bronchioles.
Salmeterol is a longer acting agent than albuterol/Ventolin HFA, but the nutrients depleted are the same. Salmeterol depletes calcium, magnesium, phosphate, and potassium.
Advair is often used as a back-up if albuterol is not enough. This becomes a double whammy to the body with essential minerals robbed out of the body. Do you see a pattern here? One is prescribed a drug to open the airway passages that simultaneously diminishes mineral stores that are essential for healthy contraction and relaxation of the airways. Then, because the underlying problem wasn’t corrected and further nutrients were depleted, a second medication is used to calm down the ongoing inflammation further stressing the body.
6. Diovan or Valsartan. This angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB) is used to treat high blood pressure and heart failure. It depletes magnesium, potassium, and zinc. The same chasing tail scenario can appear here. The heart needs these essential minerals to manage heart contractions and energy production.
7. Lantus Solostar. This is a long-acting form of insulin. Lack of magnesium and calcium may cause poor response to insulin. The adrenal hormone DHEA that balances cortisol is depleted with insulin. Yet, another delicate hormonal balance tugged at with drug stress.
8. Cymbalta. Scientists have not discovered any drug-nutrient losses yet with this anti-depressant SNRI. Other types and classes of anti-depressant medications are known to deplete coenzyme Q10, Vitamin B2, B6, and melatonin.
9. Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamin demesylate) is a stimulant medication used to treat ADHD. Scientists have not discovered any drug-nutrient losses yet at this time.
10. Lyrica (pregabalin) is an anti-seizure medication that has a number of other uses. At this time, scientists have not identified any nutrients depleted by Lyrica.
Other popular medications
Here are some additional commonly used drugs that do have considerable impact and rob nutrients from the body. This is not an exhaustive list of medications, but provides a list of several medications that may commonly be found in a medicine cabinet. The longer the drugs are used the worse the risk and concern.
Acetaminophen/Tylenol: depletes glutathione. Glutathione is the master antioxidant for the whole body, but is especially important for liver function and detoxification. Acetaminophen is the most common drug-induced cause of liver damage in the US. Given the common use of Tylenol, coupled with at least 80,000 chemicals in the environment and rise of autoimmune disorders, it makes one wonder about the detoxification challenges, glutathione depletion, autoimmune issues since Tylenol has been on the market.
Aspirin is not immune to nutrient depletion. Aspirin depletes folic acid, iron, and vitamin C.
NSAIDs or Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (ibuprofen, ketoprofen, indomethacin, Naproxen, etc): deplete iron and folic acid in part due to the digestive irritation caused by the drug. While NSAIDs are certainly popular, their effect on the body can be serious. Steroid medications, oral or inhaled (Advair, etc), deplete calcium, vitamin D, chromium, folic acid, magnesium, strontium, DHEA, and zinc.
Antibotics in general deplete: vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, folate, biotin, and vitamin K. This is because of beneficial flora destruction in the intestinal tract from antibiotic usage. There are different classes or types of antibiotics which exhaust other nutrients. Here are three common classes of antibiotics.
- Aminoglycosides (Gentamicin, Streptomycin, etc) deplete magnesium and potassium.
- Fluoroquinolones (Cipro, Levaquin, Norfloxacin, etc) deplete calcium, iron, magnesium, and potassium.
- Tetracycline drugs deplete calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, and potassium.
The long acting insulin medication was listed above, but how about non-insulin blood sugar medications such as Metformin. Metformin is a popular diabetic medication that robs the body of coenzyme Q10, folic acid, vitamin B1, B6, and B12. These are just some of the nutrients specifically needed to manage blood sugar function in the body. This again creates a vicious cycle of robbing and depletion of the body.
Methotrexate used for some autoimmune disorders and cancer treatments depletes folic acid. It also causes poor conversion of folic acid into the active form – folate. This makes the activated form of folate essential to consume in dark green leafy vegetables or in supplement form. Colchicine is another medication used for gout or rheumatic concerns. It robs the body of beta carotene and vitamin B12. Think about the elderly who are on meds that deplete B12 and folic acid. Without these nutrients, it is a fast road to poor cognition, low energy, and dementia.
Cardiac medications provide a wealth of drugs robbing the body. Here are just some of them beside the Crestor/Statins listed above. Blood pressure meds such as hydralazine depletes vitamin B6. Catopril depletes zinc. Cardiac glycosides (digoxin) deplete magnesium. Cholesterol reducing meds like bile acid sequestrants (cholestestyramine, Questran, etc): deplete beta carotene, vitamin A, vitamin E, and vitamin K.
Loop diuretics (Lasix, etc) deplete calcium, magnesium, potassium, folic acid, vitamin B1, B6, and C. Thiazide and Thiazide derivatives deplete: magnesium, potassium, zinc, folic acid, vitamin B1. Often the physician will prescribe potassium along with these types of drugs, but what about the other nutrients stripped out of the body? Magnesium, potassium, and vitamin B1 naturally manage fluid activity in the body. Stripping these nutrients out even further and not replenishing them is another pathway to distress and poor health leading to more concerns with polypharmacy.
Common GI Meds:
GI medications are another category that silently strips the body of essential nutrients. The popular commercials certainly do not expose these harmful effects, and make them seem perfectly harmless to use long term. Acid blocking medications of different types, such as antacids, (magnesium salts or aluminum salts) deplete calcium, phosphorus, chromium, folic acid and iron. H-2 Blockers (Tagamet, Pepcid, Zantac, etc) deplete calcium, chromium, folic acid, vitamin B12, and zinc. Proton pump Inhibitors (Prevacid, Omeprazole, Protonix) deplete beta carotene, calcium, chromium, folic acid, iron, Vitamin B12 and C, and zinc.
At the other end of the digestive tract, we have laxatives and enemas often used by seniors as bowel motility and function breaks down. Laxatives such as Mineral Oil deplete beta carotene, calcium, vitamin A, D, E, and K, and phosphate salts. Stimulant Laxatives (Senokot, Correctol, Dulcolax, etc) deplete potassium, calcium, and vitamin D. This can be especially problematic for some with the colonoscopy preparation solutions and mineral loss. How many times do you see an elderly person on meds for constipation and diuretics only to see their health disappear before your very eyes?
Steroid hormones were discussed earlier with the top 10 prescription drugs, but we cannot forget about other hormone prescriptions especially estrogen containing drugs. Estrogens (Estrace, FemPatch, Premarin, Prempro, etc) and Birth Control Pills that contain estrogen deplete folic acid, magnesium, vitamin B1, B2, B6, B12, vitamin A, C, and zinc. This class of meds is notorious for serious nutrient depletions that wreak havoc with young women and cause significant risk for blood clots and stroke. This is especially true with smokers, overweight, migraine sufferers, those with PCOS, hypertension, and blood sugar problems.
Central Nervous System Drugs:
The three drugs listed in the top ten did not have known drug-nutrient depletions. There are, however, plenty of medications used for brain and mental health that do have known nutrient depletions. Rarely are these discussed when handed a prescription drug. Tricyclic Antidepressants (amytriptyline, Pamelor, etc) deplete coenzyme Q10 and vitamin B2.
SSRIs (Prozac, Zoloft, etc) deplete iodine, and MAOs deplete vitamin B6. Each nutrient is essential for energy production and mood stability, the very thing that the drugs are prescribed for. With the sky-rocketing rates of depression and mood disorders, how about replenishing some nutrients first or at least work on replenishing what the med stripped out.
Anti-seizure meds have several concerns and provide immense concerns for those with mitochondrial disorders or methylation defects that contribute to or cause the seizure disorders. Carbamazepine (Tegretol, etc) depletes biotin, acetyl-l carnitine, folic acid, calcium, vitamin D, E, and K. Phenytoin (Dilantin, etc.) reduces biotin, folic acid, acetyl l carnitine, vitamin B1, B12, D, E, K, calcium, and zinc. Valproic Acid (Depakote, etc) depletes folic acid, acetyl-l-carnitine, vitamin B3, and zinc. Lastly, anxiety meds (Xanax, Valium, etc) diminishes melatonin. Certainly going off something like Xanax with melatonin levels exhausted will lead to further sleepless nights, poor restorative sleep and more challenged brain health.
Weight Loss Drugs:
Xenical depletes beta carotene, vitamins A, D, E, and K.
The point of the article and known research is that it is fundamental to replenish what the drugs steal from the body. The majority of these nutrients are vital for maintaining energy, cognitive skills, memory, bone health, immune integrity, antioxidant status and simply vitality. Certainly there is a time and a place for properly prescribed medications, but how many patients go thru the medical revolving door only to be prescribed another script for side effects caused by drugs that rob the body of essential nutrients.
Taking a quality multiple vitamin, multiple mineral, vitamin D, and coenzyme Q10 can go a long ways to stop this slippery dangerous slide that too many are on. If you have to be on a medication, work with your medical provider to take the drug in the smallest dose possible for the least amount of time. Replenish the lost nutrients as best as you can, otherwise this can lead to "new problems" and a downturn in health. Get rid of the other nutrient robbers in your life, i.e. white flour, white sugar, processed foods, alcohol, etc. and restore nutrients with a diet filled with colorful, well-balanced foods. Don’t let your health be robbed even further. Life has enough challenges as it is.
SMART APPS for patient compliance is MOVING FORWARD to 99% of citizens being tied to telemedicine with nanobots and microchips as COMPLIANCE OFFICERS. As these same global corporate medical institutions sell the idea of GREEN REVOLUTION creating 'healthy' options -----as these same global health systems are behind the soaring amount of PHARMA we are taking even as PHARMA is now a deregulated, profiteering PRODUCT MILL often having no efficicacy----are not ready for prime time----and are often harmful-----
We are seeing these same global health institutions---far-right wing global banking 1% pushing PATIENT COMPLIANCE.
Here we have PA-----home of global banking 1% ONE WORLD ONE GOVERNANCE---MOVING FORWARD patient compliance while tied to GLOBAL PHARMA----GLOBAL BIG AG AND BIG MEAT----
The American people were ranked #1 of all developed nations in public health access and outcomes---we were the healthiest of all developed nations UNTIL CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA----and that far-right wing global banking 1% GREEN CORPORATION REVOLUTION.
where will those 5% to the 1% black, white, and brown citizens be when global banking 1% no longer needs to buy them with PATRONAGE AS BAD PATENTS.
When we say those dastardly 5% to the 1% player peeps are going under the bus----global banking PATRONAGE to those 5% these few decades has been stock options, real estate, and promotion of bad PATENT PRODUCTS. RAHAL and SMITH are two of those 5% players getting $600 million from US Federally subsidized BIOTECH research as well as GREEN SUBSIDIES-----and have national media free advertising these products as 'healthy'.
MOVING FORWARD GREEKS AND FREEMASONS AND THAT 5% WILL NOT BE NEEDED ---NO PATRONAGE FOR YOU----GLOBAL 1%----NO SMILING FACES FOR THOSE 5% BLACK, WHITE, AND BROWN PLAYERS.

Five ways technology can increase patient compliance
January 29, 2016
By Karen Appold
The key to helping patients adhere to treatment plans is to make it easy for them to do so, which is why Geisinger Health System in Danville, Pennsylvania, is exploring how the tools patients use in everyday life, such as smartphones, tablets, and wearable devices, can lend a hand in increasing patient engagement. “Our goal is to integrate patients' needs related to healthcare into their normal routines, including their daily use of digital technology,” says Jonathan Slotkin, MD, FAANS, medical director, Geisinger in Motion, a Geisinger Health System program that promotes the effective use of technology to initiate patient and provider activation across a distributed healthcare delivery network.
Patients regularly use technology to help manage many aspects of their lives, says Slotkin. “If we can add healthcare to the list of other items they use technology for, we have a better chance of engaging them and increasing care adherence.”
Here’s a closer look at how technological devices can increase patient compliance.
OscarMany people increasingly use smartphone apps to manage their daily activities, interact with the outside world, and get news, information, and alerts, says Robert Oscar, RPh, chief executive officer, RxEOB, Richmond, Virginia. In fact, a late 2015 article published in the Journal of Anaesthesiology Clinical Pharmacology reported that more than 20,000 mobile apps tied to healthcare, fitness, and medicine exist today. Smartphone apps provide a way for patients to consolidate pertinent health information and to manage their health. Because many patients carry their smartphones with them, they can easily access the information.
Linda Girgis, MD, FAAFP, Girgis Family Medicine, South River, New Jersey, sees many patients use this technology. “Apps can emit a sound when it’s time to take a medication, reminding patients when to do so,” she says. “Oftentimes, patients may not remember if they took a dose or not, but smartphone app alerts eliminate this uncertainty. Patients can also use alerts from apps to remind them of doctors’ appointments or when they need to schedule them.”
GirgisIn addition, Girgis says apps can help patients keep track of information. For example, they may say they had bloodwork done a few weeks ago, when in fact it was several months ago. An app that tracks this information might prevent this error. “Relying on memory alone is fraught with errors,” Girgis says.
Fitness apps monitor heart rate, count steps, and track movement and calories burned, encouraging wearers to keep moving. Specialized apps address factors related to conditions such as diabetes and oncology, as well as women’s health. “Apps provide an immense number of opportunities, and are an important part of making medical care mobile and improving wellness and patient engagement,” says Cynthia Ambres, MD, MS, a KPMG strategy partner based in Los Angeles and a member of the firm’s Global Healthcare Center of Excellence.
MOVING FORWARD in US CITIES DEEMED FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES has a goal of installing far-right wing, authoritarian, militaristic, extreme wealth extreme poverty LIBERTARIAN MARXISM-----these AFFORDABLE CARE ACT reforms pretend to create WINNERS AND LOSERS in our once strongly paid staff, doctors, administrators-----we are seeing today DOCTORS heading corporate R and D departments are being called EXECUTIVES and indeed they are receiving a high salary for now. If we look at US hospitals and clinics filling with global labor pool 99% staff and doctors----they are being paid far less with the goal being this GLOBAL CORPORATE CAMPUS SOCIALISM------$67 a month. Our foreign doctors being brought to US cities trained to do whatever that health institution says------will be those doctors at $67 a month while US citizens black, white, and brown citizens trained as doctors will be sent to be EX-PATS in third world nations receiving these same $67 a month.
If we look at PIPELINE TO PRISON reforms ----REHABILITATION CAMPS we identified as same as China used for free labor -----this is health care as are the doctors tied to these structures. Our US low-income and working class have had the most exposure to the dangers of FAR-RIGHT GREEN REVOLUTION creating GATEWAY MEDICINE. As 99% of WE THE PEOPLE fall into third world poverty we too will be MANDATED to SMART MEDICINE with products called HEALTHY by medical staff and doctors earning $67 a month.
OH, US CITIZENS will be those medical department executive doctors receiving top salaries-----well, NO it will be GLOBAL 1% brought into US FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES getting those top salaries.
PLEASE DON'T THINK THIS WILL HAPPEN ONLY TO OUR NEW IMMIGRANT MEDICAL STAFF AND DOCTORS----WE WANT ALL US MEDICAL STAFF AND DOCTORS PAID A US WAGE WORKING UNDER QUALITY CONDITIONS PROVIDING STRONG PUBLIC HEALTH DOING NO HARM HIPPOCRATIC OATH HEALTH CARE.
Does bringing $67 a month foreign doctors to US lower health care costs? Of course not---it makes global health corporation profits soar. Remember, as we stated with our global human capital distribution system built by CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA ----third world nations export their labor to FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES at enslaving wages in exchange for GOVERNMENT KICKBACKS. Same will happen to US health staff and doctors as EX-PATS.
Cuban Doctors Get Salary Raises To $67 A Month After Government Cuts 100K Redundant Jobs
Mar 24, 2014 04:34 PM By Matthew Mientka
The Cuban government has given its medical workers a pay raise after cutting 100,000 redundant jobs during the past four years. CC By 2.0 With remittances from sending tens of thousands of doctors and nurses abroad to care for the poor, Cuba is doubling some medical salaries to as much as $67 per month.
Though a true comparison between U.S. and Cuban salaries is complicated by stark differences between the two systems, specialists in America tend to earn 35 percent more than the average of counterparts around the world, according to a survey from Forbes. Whereas the “average” U.S. general practitioner spends some 54 hours per week for an annual salary of $185,000, medicine is a different animal on the scorned island-nation led by the Marxist-Leninist Raul Castro. Supplemented by a social welfare state, the average government worker makes just $20 per month by comparison.
Cuba’s official state media announced this week hundreds of thousands of medical workers would receive pay raises that in some cases doubled their annual salaries. Top-performing doctors with not one but two specialties may now earn as much as $804 per year, Granma reported, whereas entry-level nurses will now make $25 per month.
Sounding more like a capitalist country, Granma reported the government decided to raise pay for medical workers after eliminating more than 100,000 redundant positions during the past several years.
"This is very good news that makes me tremendously happy. ...With my first paycheck I'm going to buy a toy for my youngest grandson, who's 3," Soraida Pina, a 62-year-old nurse, told CNBC. "This will open new doors for me."
Yet other medical professionals said they were less thrilled by the pay raises. "They had talked to us about this, and it's very important for the family economy, but it continues to be a salary that means very little because everything is very expensive," Laura Vazquez, a 38-year-old pathologist, said.
Granma also said the nation would raise pay for medical personnel sent abroad to countries such as Brazil and Venezuela. The larger salaries "will contribute to the stability and quality of the medical services for the people, as well as fulfill international commitments," Granma reported. Today, Cuba exports medical care like the U.S. exports its military. With some 11 million people, the island nation has deployed more than 50,000 medical workers in 66 nations around the world.
Here we have more of those dastardly 5% to the 1% freemason Greeks telling us that after these few decades of CLINTON neo-liberals being the pols installing policies and creating conditions inside US cities for PRISON PIPELINE---now, these same global banking 1% pols are FIXING that prison pipeline. These two Greeks whether male, female---black, white, and brown citizens have been those 5% GREEKS to which we refer.
We will end by stating the obvious-----a nation is only as great as its poorest citizens are treated. These smiling faces are installing what will be that REHABILITATION health care being FAR-RIGHT WING CORPORATE with MOVING FORWARD health policy creating and expanding further tiered health policy that is repressive, regressive, abusive, and harmful to health.
If 99% of WE THE PEOPLE black, white, and brown citizens keep allowing these far-right health policies filled with deregulated chemical manufacturing, IPAB global health tribunal health policy, fast-tracked so American citizens used to freedom,liberty, justice, and pursuit of happiness have a chance to fight ----our US 99% will be pushed into what is being built for our low-income citizens.
INJUSTICE FOR ONE DOES BECOME INJUSTICE FOR ALL--NO MATTER IF ONE IS THE CONSUMER OR WORKER!
Texas was ground zero for privatized prison policy -----we KNOW these judges are as corrupted as our Baltimore City courts working for global Wall Street Baltimore Development ---not for 99% freedom and justice for all.
Alpha Kappa Alpha and Delta Sigma Theta Criminal Judges Team Up to Create Program to Fight the Prison Pipeline
The pipeline to prison is a problem that disproportionately affects the African-American community and four Black women who are judges and members of Alpha Kappa Alpha and Delta Sigma Theta have teamed up to create a program in Dallas to combat it.
The program they have created is called Pipeline to Possibilities and it focuses on changing the pipeline to prison in the local school system around Dallas. Through the program, youth are educated on various aspects of the justice system and taught life skills, redirecting them from engaging in criminal behavior.
The program was created by four elected judges who are members of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. and Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.
Judge Shequitta Kelly
Judge Shequitta Kelly presides over Dallas County’s Misdemeanor Family Violence Criminal Court #11. She was initiated into Delta Sigma Theta in the fall of 1998 through the Gamma Nu chapter on the campus of Indiana University. She is #8 of the 18 R.E.N.O.W.N.E.D. line. www.shequittakelly.com
Judge Amber Givens-Davis
Judge Amber Givens-Davis presides over Dallas County’s 282nd Judicial District Felony Criminal Court. She was initiated into Alpha Kappa Alpha in the spring of 2003 through the Omicron Theta Omega chapter in St. Louis, Missouri. She is #5 of the S.S. Cloud 9 line.
Judge Stephanie Mitchell
Judge Stephanie Mitchell presides over Dallas County’s 291st Judicial District Felony Criminal Court. She was initiated into Alpha Kappa Alpha in the spring of 1999 through the Delta chapter on the campus of University of Kansas. She is #12 of the S.S. Spectrum. line.
Judge Lisa Green
Judge Lisa Green presides over Dallas County’s Misdemeanor Criminal Court #5. She was initiated into Alpha Kappa Alpha in the spring of 1994 through the Delta Rho City Wide chapter on the campus of St. Marys. She is #4 of the Entertainer line. www.judgelisagreen.com
The program they created consists of 4 class sessions covering the following topics:
– Introduction to the Criminal Justice System
-Presentation and Appearance
(Students are taught how to tie ties, apply makeup and present themselves respectably both in person and through their social media presence.)
(Where they address different obstacles the students are dealing with and offer solutions to approach their challenges. Students also get to hear from people who found themselves in the criminal justice system because of the decisions they made while they were young and help the participants understand how important it is to make good choices.)
-College Explosion & Bridging Law Enforcement and Neighborhoods In Dallas
(Students get to learn about different careers, colleges and entrepreneurships. This sessions kicks off with a greek step show. Students also get an opportunity discuss with law enforcement their concerns. Topics include the rise in police shootings of unarmed men across the country and concerns law enforcement officers).
We at Watch The Yard want to show these women as much love as we can for what they are doing. It not only is amazing to see four Black women who are judges teaming up to save the community, but it is also great to see them using their existing greek networks to amplify their positive and impactful work.
