Medical Board 1, Ron Kennedy 0

Medical Board 1, Ron Kennedy 0

A few months ago, Dr. Ron Kennedy made a big splash in the Cali vaccine concerned community by announcing that he was suing the California Medical Board and its individual members, because the board was obtaining copies of his medical exemptions from the schools. I understand how a doctor can assert the privacy rights for his patients’ medical records which the doctor posseses. But I never understood how a doc could assert the patients’ rights over a school record (which…

Can I sue Senator Richard Pan for doing his job as a California Legislator? THAT WOULD BE A HARD NO!

Can I sue Senator Richard Pan for doing his job as a California Legislator? THAT WOULD BE A HARD NO!

I’ve been asked this question a couple times recently as the frustration of the Vaccine Concerned grow as SB 276 winds its way through the California Legislature, so a public answer might be in order. The job of legislators is to propose and pass legislation. It doesn’t matter if a small minority or even a large majority of citizens don’t like a particular bill or law, or think its unfair, horrible or even murderous. The process is the process, regardless…

The Other Part of How to Win the Cali SB 276 battle (and what’s not going to work)

The Other Part of How to Win the Cali SB 276 battle (and what’s not going to work)

My last post “Go Big and Go Smart or Move Out of State” generated some sharp disagreements (at least on my Facebook page), but that’s not a bad thing. These issues need to be discussed, but quickly, so that action isn’t delayed. here is that post: http://rickjaffeesq.com/2019/04/11/to-the-cali-sb-276-opponents-go-big-and-go-smart-or-move-out-of-state/ One criticism I got is don’t piss-off the legislators; they won’t like you. My guess is that most of the legislators already think you’re a bunch of anti vax wackos, so I wouldn’t…

To the Cali SB 276 Opponents: Go Big and Go Smart, or Move out of State

To the Cali SB 276 Opponents: Go Big and Go Smart, or Move out of State

I saw some Facebook video clips from the Sacramento anti-SB 276 rally which took place yesterday, April 10, 2019. The hundreds of participants seemed highly motivated. The speakers which included Rock Star Del Big Tree and RFKJr, (who I consider the brightest and most cogent star in the Vaccine Concerned firmament) was also there I’ve heard. Del is broadcasting today, and has some other heavyweight movement leaders. It is certainly democracy at work. I have a question for the anti-276…

Where is the California Medical Board’s Outrage over SB 276?

Where is the California Medical Board’s Outrage over SB 276?

Unless you follow general health care issues, you might have missed the outrage expressed by the head of the California Insurance Commission, when it came out that nurses rather than doctors were making insurance coverage decisions about expensive medical procedures, and for high cost procedures, denial of coverage means denial of care. Here is an article explaining it. https://www.newsmax.com/thewire/aetna-medical-director-nurses-decide/2018/02/12/id/842821/ At least Aetna had nurses reviewing the medical records before they denied coverage (FYI: I hate health insurance companies. See Chapter…

Good News for the Vaccine Concerned: NY Judge TRO’s Rockland County Executive’s Ban

Good News for the Vaccine Concerned: NY Judge TRO’s Rockland County Executive’s Ban

A New York judge in Rockland County has just issued a TRO stopping Rockland County Executive Edwin Day’s March 26, 2019 ban on unvaccinated orthodox jewish children from being in public places for one month because of the measles outbreak in Rockland County. This might be the first ever something like this has happened, maybe both ways, the County executive’s action and a judge stopping it. In addition to issuing the TRO, the judge signed an order to show cause…

EXTRA, EXTRA: US Stem Cell Litigation Goes to the Court for Decision

EXTRA, EXTRA: US Stem Cell Litigation Goes to the Court for Decision

Per Pacer, on April fools day (with whatever significance that has to you), both sides submitted their replies on their respective summary judgement motions. The case is now as lawyers say, sub judice, (submitted for and pending decision). No big surprises in these last papers. The government says the defendants are violating FDA laws and regulations, based on the FDA’s interpretation of the FDA statutes, and that the defendants admit the violations. The defendants argue that they are not subject…

The Feds Send Some Love Letters to CBD Companies

The Feds Send Some Love Letters to CBD Companies

CBD is the new gold rush in complementary and integrative health. It’s everywhere. But while CBD based products may be legal federally, they are obviously not approved drugs, and are at best regarded as dietary supplements. As such, no medical claims can be made. But legal technicalities have not stopped the CBD companies from marketing their products as miracle cures for all things pain related and more. And therein lies the problem according to the feds. Two days ago there…

Revised and Updated Breaking FDA News: Finally Some Action Against a Cord Blood Manufacturer & MORE TO COME SOON!

Revised and Updated Breaking FDA News: Finally Some Action Against a Cord Blood Manufacturer & MORE TO COME SOON!

For some reason, and for the life of me I can’t figure out what it is, up until now, the FDA has been extremely shy about confronting cord blood manufacturer/resellers. I can’t think of a single warning issued against these folks, even though they claim to their physician customers that their products are FDA exempt, which I have publicly doubted is the case. (See my post: http://rickjaffeesq.com/2019/02/08/is-cord-blood-um…-treatment-legal/ Per the NY Times today, that changed last Friday, and for those living…
