There are few issues more controversial and contentious than the debate(s) over vaccines. But whatever side of that debate you come down on, you should be horrified by the questions surrounding the death of Jeffrey James Bradstreet, MD.
Dr. Bradstreet was a controversial anti-vaccination physician who promoted an unorthodox method of treating children with autism. Like some in the anti-vaccination crowd, be very strongly believed there was a link between vaccines and autism.
After gaining notoriety, or infamy, for his claims, armed FDA agents raided his offices. Many people do not know that the executive branch employs a tremendous number of offices of law enforcement, including police for the Food and Drug Administration.
Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky has asked why the FDA needs guns at all. He noted that there are dozens of federal agencies with policing power, and questioned why the FDA should be added to that list. Regardless of his protests, the FDA policing agency has in fact become a reality. After those armed agents stormed into the offices of Dr. Bradstreet, he was found in the Rocky Broad River in Chimney Rock, North Carolina only three days later.
Coroners say that he had apparently committed suicide, through a self-inflicted gunshot wound. They can’t be sure about what day he died, but his body was recovered on June 19th.
Interestingly, he was found with “a gunshot wound to the chest, which appears to be self-inflicted,” according to the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office. But very few commit suicide by putting a gun to their chest, and even fewer walk down to a river before doing it.
An autopsy was conducted on June 23, but results have still not been made public.
What was his office raided in the first place? After all, making controversial or even wrong claims is not sufficient cause to have armed agents raid your offices.
A search warrant issued on June 16 by the US District Court for Northern Georgia, suggested that the doctor was using unapproved agents, as potential immune boosters and anticancer agents. One of those was a globulin component macrophage-activating factor (GcMAF).
The warrant authorized agents to confiscate any physical or digital evidence “which may constitute evidence of the receipt in interstate commerce of a misbranded drug.”
We simply don’t know what the doctor was up to. Many of our readers might think he was on to something, while many others might think he was a nutcase. That really isn’t the point to us. What is of particular concern is that armed FDA police executed a search warrant using the threat of lethal force on a doctor, in what appears to be retaliation for his unorthodox and controversial statements and methods. This is, without question, a disturbing step in the wrong direction for an already heavy-handed government.
That the doctor was found dead, under highly suspicious circumstances only days after this raid raised even more questions.
Regardless of what you think about his ideas, if you believe there is something suspicious about the circumstances surrounding Dr. Bradstreet’s death, then help us SPREAD THE WORD!
