China’s Stranglehold on Pharmaceuticals

“Without firing a missile or hacking the electric grid, China can take America down by disrupting access to essential drugs.” 

Rosemary Gibson has done a great job alerting us to the genesis of China’s grip on our supply of medications. China is now the largest global supplier of the active ingredients and chemical building blocks needed to make many vitamins, prescription, and over-the-counter drugs. These include antibiotics, steroids, and cancer drugs. 

Until the mid-1990s U.S., Europe, and Japan manufactured 90 percent of the global supply of key ingredients for the world’s medications. Our weakness for bargains created a monster. China undercut the price of drugs and components; the artificially low price forces other companies out of the market; then, the company is free to manipulate the price and supply at will. Now more than half of the 4,000 active ingredients needed to make medications are dependent on China.

This episode discusses how and why the United States became so dependent on China for medications, the risks of such dependence, and most importantly, the solutions. The Chinese think ahead with their well-known “five-year plans.” America must start planning for our future as well.

Rosemary Gibson is an award-winning author of China Rx: Exposing the Risks of America’s Dependence on China for Medicine, revealing the dramatic shift in where medicines are made and growing concerns about their quality. Ms. Gibson is a graduate of Georgetown University and has a master’s degree from the London School of Economics, and is Senior Advisor at the Hastings Center and Perspectives Editor at JAMA Internal Medicine. She is the recipient of the highest honor from the American Medical Writers Association for her outstanding contributions to the public’s interest in reporting on critical health care issues. Ms. Gibson testified before the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission and offered common-sense solutions.

Your Mind Is the Battlefield

Your Mind Is the Battlefield

Things seem to be coming to a head rapidly. James Howard Kunstler describes the gravity of our situation as well as what is to be done. The idea that a war is being waged against your mind is a disturbing thought. For some serious clarity on the matter, James Corbett has an informative guide to 5th Generation warfare…

FOMO, Tic-Tok, and the Slap

We have to be so much a part of everything; it affects our time, our finances, and our personal relationships. Let’s sloooow it down and enjoy real life and simple pleasures.

When Life Becomes Satire

When Life Becomes Satire

It’s a pretty sad state of affairs when scanning news headlines, and you can’t tell if they’re real or from a satire site. Is life imitating satire, or is it the other way around? In either case, it doesn’t bode well for America’s future. Are we moving forward toward liberty or are we regressing into the evils of our past?

What Is A Woman?

What Is A Woman?

Brown-Jackson like many of her woke contemporaries, is attempting to redefine a reality of science that can’t be theoretically, physically, logically, or scientifically redefined or challenged. It’s just fundamental science or even biology 101. If you have two XX chromosomes you are a woman and a man if XY chromosomes. There is simply no way around it…

Ketanji Brown Jackson’s Testimony

We have vested a tremendous amount of power in our courts. Which makes the decision of who sits on those courts very important. I want to take a look at some of the stories that have come out from the first two days of Ketanji Brown Jackson’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee…

Media Mental Manipulation is Intentional

Media Mental Manipulation is Intentional

Living, in reality, takes conscious effort. Shattering the screen of unreality, like social media, is a good start. When people repeat catchphrases like “trans women are women” they often don’t really believe what they’re saying. It’s not just a difference of opinion. The mental manipulation being directed at us is intended to enslave our minds and drive us toward destruction…

Why are so many RINOs claiming to be America First Patriots?

Why are so many RINOs claiming to be America First Patriots?

An America First patriot may love Zelenskyy and want to send him everything he wants. But once we cross the line of military intervention, our world will change forever. I don’t know what the outcome would be but I know with a certainty it won’t be better FOR US OR UKRAINE than if we keep our military and NATO’s military out of the action…
