Was “Top Doc” Confused About COVID19 Rules? Charges Pending

U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams faces charges in Hawaii after “a little bit of fun” while visiting a closed park in August with two others, violating COVID19 rules.

He “didn’t know“???

The article said Adams “didn’t know parks were closed“… but “provided a phone number” to the officer, “the same number Adams listed on an email to state officials seeking an exemption for Hawaii’s quarantine on arriving travelers.”

Interesting wording… the email – he provided – confirmed an exemption for quarantine for traveling – that included “links to rules”. Well… I didn’t see that juvenile behavior coming. Was he confused?


For some time, Adams has been pushing gaslighting the public to take personal responsiblity for stopping the spread of COVID19, tweeting “tips” such as “#COVIDStopsWithMe”. It seems he chose to ignore his own advice while traveling, opting for his original official statment, assuming immunity, deciding not to heed the emergency order.

Interestingly – at the bottom of the article, it states “According to the complaint, Adams put a mask on.”

He could have referenced the CDC website he linked here in early August about travel restrictions. (There’s a section covering “restrictions” here). He must not have thought to conduct a simple google search about Park Closure Hours. It boldly mentions, in red, at the top:

*City parks, botanical gardens, community gardens, certain park facilities, and beaches reopening Sept. 10, 2020 for individual activities in accordance with Emergency Order 2020-26.


But wait (bold/italics my emphasis), there’s more… To point out Jerry’s indifference… it says “the surgeon general was cited for accidentally violating the mayor’s emergency order, due to his misunderstanding of the law“.

Accidentally? Misunderstanding? Huh.

I’ll reference a quote from David Bachert:

“Well, when it happened “due to his misunderstanding of the law”, it would be best to lift the burden of the office from him, henceforth he might be able to commit himself to further studies of “the law” – or at least the content of e-mails he receives. #FireTheSG

Covid19, and restrictions in place around the country aren’t something ‘new‘. While the city of Honolulu has issued “more than 10,000 such citations“, 2,203 were dismissed by June.


Wait, was Jerry confused?

If he’s confused, are we still expected to take his position or “advice” seriously? I’m not surprised Jerry doesn’t do his research, or that he is… well, it’s common knowledge Jerry doesn’t open emails. As much as he likes google, he didn’t take time to check?

Here’s my condensed version of just a few of Adams key sentences in a COVID19 press conference with President Trump earlier this year.


With a history of confusion, Jerry, as former Indiana State Health Commissioner – and in charge of that state’s Tobacco Prevention and Cessation Commission, seemed stunned after reading “his own” latest Surgeon General ‘report’ on smoking. He statedI didn’t even know until this report came out that you can add as much as 10 years, a decade, to your life expectancy by quitting smoking”.

What?


Now changed, this was his personal Twitter profile description at one time.

Do as I say, not as I do

It’s unnerving to see -0- accountability from the Surgeon General both personally and professionally, acting ‘unaware’ while misinterpreting data, science, and now laws the public he’s supposed to serve – are expected to abide by.

After breaking at least one law while sightseeing, he appeared at a news conference giving the public advice he didn’t heed himself:

“And to the people who are lapsing a little bit, I want you to understand that a little bit of fun right now can result in shutdowns further on down the road. It’s important that we all do the right things right now, even if we don’t feel we are personally at risk.”

The violation for “a little bit of fun” he mentioned reportedly can include “fines of up to $5,000, up to a year in jail, or both”.

I suggest both.

In the most basic observation of this puppet, I (rhetorically) wonder why the public health community is concerned about the public’s lack of trust in the people like Adams, who are ‘in charge’, and their inability to do their job(s) is questioned.

I’m also curious as to why Jerry didn’t take a selfie with the nice officer. I’ve repeatedly invited Jerry to be a guest on Smoke Free Radio to discuss a potpourri of subjects with Patrick and me.

To date, he has not responded.

Do You Know Nicotine? Addictive. Evil. Life-changing?

The use and consequences of nicotine have been investigated by award-winning Milwaukee filmmaker Aaron Biebert with his latest film, “You Don’t Know Nicotine“. The original release (originally scheduled to premiere in May) will premiere Saturday, September 26th.

The scenario of a full audience inside a theater can not happen, so with ingenuity, it will be shown outside, drive-in style, where social distancing can be adhered to. Following the film, there will be a “question and answer” session held with the director and possibly other members of the crew/cast.

Since the mid-eighties, anti-smoking messages of “nicotine” being addictive and evil have been around (and widely accepted) since I can remember. The most popular description of nicotine (above any other) is that it is dangerous, and “more addictive” than heroin. That’s life-altering.

What is the truth about nicotine? What is being suppressed, and why? Do we know the truth? I’m sure I cannot know everything about nicotine, but I, and the public certainly want deserves to know more. You Don’t Know Nicotine is about to tell the world.


What Are The Questions?

What will we learn from this film?

  • How addictive is it?
  • Does nicotine cause cancer?
  • What does it do to a teenager’s brain?
  • Are there benefits for adults using nicotine?

Good or bad, no matter what I think I know, I want the truth. So with that: I asked:

What is your goal for this film? Here’s his response.

“I want the world to know that issues surrounding nicotine affect more than just those who use it. There are many important issues being discussed right now around the world, but this topic has to be wrestled with in a more thoughtful way. We believe this movie can help jump-start that global conversation. We’re excited for people everywhere to see it.”

Changing The Conversation

The fact that addiction may or may not be true is now trivial to me but I still want to know many things. Is it ‘hooking a new generation’ or is it experimentation? Is it really dangerous or addictive on its own? What, if any, are the benefits of nicotine?

I have selfish motives for supporting this film and its topic. Not really ‘public’ until now, my wife has Alzheimer’s. I know of research being done with nicotine to fight Parkinson’s and schizophrenia.

I am intrigued, and want to know if nicotine is what we’re told it is: addictive and evil. I also want to know if they are concealing or suppressing life-altering information.

I can’t tell which ‘side’ is right or wrong, and I’m not sure who’s going to appreciate the outcome of this film. With an open mind, maybe we all will.

Good or bad, I am looking forward to the findings of this film even if it may make some (including me) uncomfortable. What I expect from Aaron Biebert and his seasoned team is thought-provoking truth.

The Pleasure Principle revisited…

David Dorn, if you remember, was at the Global Forum on Nicotine in 2016. He made a speech. Now in June of 2020, Samantha below finds it, loves it, and explains it. David’s work did not, and will not, go unnoticed or forgotten as long as I’m around.

THIS is another reason I love Twitter and do what I ‘do’.


Associations of Flavored e-Cigarette Uptake With Subsequent Smoking Initiation and Cessation

17,929 participants? Nice! It’s not as large as Dr. Farsalino’s largest ever found here with 69,233 participants, and submitted to the FDA as Docket No. FDA-2017-N-6565_FARSALINOS.pdf. (We’ve NEVER heard a word since that I’m aware of).

“In this study, adults who began vaping nontobacco-flavored e-cigarettes were more likely to quit smoking than those who vaped tobacco flavors.”

Their link is here:

The past is not the future in tobacco control

It really, really isn’t.

We should encourage product innovation and support civil dialogue on issues related to smoking harm reduction.

We really should.

I want to thank Cindy Schmidt specifically for reminding me of the reason I do what I do, and the perspective and kind words she had at the beginning of the show, and for Mike Peterson’s words and of course, vapers.org.uk.

A pioneer (and someone I adore) speaks at the Global Forum on Nicotine, and Clive Bates covers it:

Louise Ross: Pragmatism versus dogma


Global Forum on Nicotine

Here’s a subtle observation about #GFN20 each year. Those claiming to be “experts” have an open invite, yet are not speaking or attending to share their ‘knowledge’.

Those experts who ARE attending & speaking? I’ve never seen ONE of them proclaim expertise.

They just show up.

Here’s where it’s curated:

Global Forum on Nicotine


The Unlikely Savior

Smoking, nicotine and Covid-19: What is going on?

Maybe it’s simply because smokers are already forced to be anti-social by being put in smoking areas. Maybe it’s the nicotine, or some other constituent in cigarettes… either way – I know the tobacco CONtrol and anti-nicotine crowd have (depending on where you’re from) – their panties, knickers, or shorts in a knot about even imagining nicotine has a “good place” in the world.

That’s how I like to picture them: uncomfortable, scratching their heads and picking their asses, in public.

I’ll let Clive Bates take over from here:

The Unlikely Savior


Don’t Ban Today What May Have a PMTA Tomorrow

I’m not sure how many times I’ve said this: If you are IN this industry, you MUST have working knowledge of your local (and state) representatives (and opposition). You MUST be PROactive. You MUST be JUST as concerned about THEIR concerns and answer those questions before your 3 minutes at a podium ticks quietly by on deaf ears. Certainly, out of breath – I’ve covered these and more as a consumer, HERE: Vaping Industry Trade Associations.

So this caught my eye, and you, in industry, should read it. Your business, your choice. The deadline is looming, and I’m still rooting for you.

“It is reasonable for states and localities, which can often move faster than federal regulatory bodies, to regulate tobacco products in a way that suits their constituents.”

No Flavour Gateway

Something else I’ve said ’till I was blue in the face: I said in 2017 there is NO GATEWAY, AGAIN, there is NO GATEWAY to smoking from vaping products.

Someone else said it again. They’ve got titles and stuff.

Because you need to pat yourselves on the back for a pseudo-job well done. You have work to do with those states banning ‘our’ products on false pretenses. Now you have the tools.

Human beings died while we eluded to something else causing the problem – and that assumption caused cities and states to ban nicotine vaping products.

You have work to do with those states banning ‘our’ products on false pretenses. Now you have the tools.

Dependence on e-cigarettes and cigarettes in a cross-sectional study of US adults.

From March, I don’t see it in my bookmarks… so here it is:

“Use of e-cigarettes appears to be consistently associated with lower #nicotine dependence than cigarette smoking.”

My notes: Also, a lower association with everything else such as health problems, narrative, taxes, revenue, & control. That’s why they’re mad.

Effects of electronic cigarette on platelet and vascular function after four months of use

LESS harm. Harm reduction. To my knowledge, no mice were harmed in this HUMAN study.

While still in the discovery mode, there is much more in here than I understand. (From Dr. Farsalinos and team).

‘Why Is a Liquor Store Essential and I’m Not?’ Asks Store Owner During N.Y.C. Coronavirus Lockdown

My occasional tin foil hat wearing self says high volume state taxes determined what “is” ‘essential’ and ‘non-essential’… maybe if vape shops and clothing stores and churches sold liquor, cigarettes and lottery tickets….

FDA Deems Certain Tobacco Products Subject to FDA Authority (*Revised)

No one celebrates “National Tobacco Day” like the anti-movement. No one seems to CARE that definitions and science isn’t important legally. In addition to the list including “programmable software” (like this blog or your point of sale software?), now, the FDA has “revised” (among other things)

The following is a nonexhaustive list of examples of objects used with e-cigarettes or other ENDS that would likely be considered accessories:

Screwdrivers

Lanyards

to the ‘tobacco product‘ category. Someone should alert the major hardware outlets.

Blu Files PMTA; Will the Indie Vape Industry Be Shut Out?

Jim McDonald explains “All three major U.S. tobacco companies that sell vaping products have now submitted Premarket Tobacco Applications (PMTAs) to the FDA”, and while reporting on that, recalls in January “Alex Azar promised to create a “streamlined” PMTA pathway for small vaping manufacturers”….

Vaping In The News ~ April 26th, 2020

Vaping In The News covers nicotine, smoking, vaping, snus, heat not burn, e-cigarettes, harm reduction, tobacco control, public health, government, regulations, policies & more worldwide.

The largest threat to Public Health is an informed consumer.


It’s Official! PMTA Submission Deadline Will Move to Sept. 9th ~ Will Nicotine Be a Game Changer for COVID-19 Patients? ~ Tobacco Free Kids has no data ~ Truth Initiative is posturing publicly ~ White House weighing plan to replace Azar ~ Surgeon general gets pushed to sidelines, sparking questions ~ Mixed Messages from Surgeon General ~ COVID-19 Lockdown and The Damage to Vape Businesses and Their Customers ~ WHO Values Lines Of Text Over Saving Lives ~ WHO Rips Into Vaping Yet Again In This Shocking Video


It’s Official! PMTA Submission Deadline Will Move to Sept. 9th

If you haven’t heard or have been under a rock, the deadline has been extended. This does not give you three extra months to be negligent in your responsibility. In fact, I encourage you to take the allotted time to be precise, factual, and focused in your actions.

It’s Official! PMTA Submission Deadline Will Move to Sept. 9th


Will Nicotine Be a Game Changer for COVID-19 Patients?

Imagine the idiocy of ‘experts’ hiding, and demonizing a substance for 30+ years because they are afraid of exposing themselves and truth? As I’ve stated before, imagine the heads of tobacco control ‘experts’ hitting desks at the speed of disbelief… if, and I use the word if very seriously, nicotine (or other substance) ‘may, could, or might‘ be beneficial to preventing, suppressing or helping reduce COVID19.

Imagine, if that same study conducted (and also concluded) showing no complaints about addiction or withdrawal of the said substance at the same time. That would put 30+ years of liars in a pickle, and would warm the cockles of my heart.

Either way, science will prove, or disprove this hypothesis.

Will Nicotine Be a Game Changer for COVID-19 Patients?


Tobacco Free Kids has no data

They’re spitting in the wind and being called out for it.


Truth Initiative is posturing – publicly.

The American Vaping Association is calling out another political front group spitting in the wind… no phony agenda there…


White House weighing plan to replace Azar

He said, she said… could be true –

Surgeon general gets pushed to sidelines, sparking questions

The hashtag #FireTheSG isn’t just fun, it’s a goal. In the meantime, I have plenty of questions as to why they would keep the muppet on.

Surgeon general gets pushed to sidelines, sparking questions


Mixed Messages from Surgeon General

After being absent from multiple press conferences, Jerry has come out of double-secret probation. Yes, I did this. See, the words are there, you just have to read between the lines.

I call this one “All in the wording”.

WHO Values Lines Of Text Over Saving Lives

To understand the rabbit hole we’re swirling in with official stances of powerful political and pharmaceutical front groups posing as “public health groups” would take three months to do, so I’ll assume you know. Now Dick takes the latest irony of the World Health Organization’s position to task.

FDA Rejects Krishnamoorthi’s Call for a Temporary Vape Ban

Nationally, while there are simple (and common-sense) suggestions of washing hands and such, there are also broad, borderline infringements on we, the people’s rights. Timing ‘is’ everything. Science is also a factor.

Jim McDonald:

FDA Rejects Krishnamoorthi’s Call for a Temporary Vape Ban


The Damage to Vape Shops Deemed “Non-Essential”—And Their Customers

VITN rules are strictly adhered to.

Speaking of rights. Classification of ‘non-essential’ businesses is subjective to who is making the determination without consideration for whom it may, or may not -arbitrarily- apply.

Michael McGrady:

US vaping lung injury outbreak was a public health fiasco or worse – comment to FDA

Skirting facts, utilizing conjecture, the “evali” fiasco was a precursor to what the FDA, CDC, – really any ‘public health’ authority could screw up with a looming pandemic, proving they were both dishonest and unprepared.

Did the vaping industry target youth?

A valid question answered by Michael J. McFadden:

Did the vaping industry target youth?


Adults don’t like flavors, but Nancy Pelosi does.

Allegedly, adults don’t like #Flavors, candy or ‘other flavors’, Nancy. This will look great in court.

Pelosi answers the question, “How much of your regular diet do you think is ice cream & candy? with “As much as possible”. “I enjoy it-I like it better than anything else.”

Also, *note the candy behind the adult host in her very own video showing her love of ice-cream and flavors.


Public health Covid19 email thread

With my own tweet, I give an example to the Surgeon General about this… I’ll link the PDF I refer to below it. It is well worth your time to scrutinize what they already were being shown, told and advised.

And they sat quietly.

Full email chain provided here by the New York Times in PDF format.
