Who Needs A Psychiatrist?
By Chuck Baldwin
October 27, 2004


The mainstream press (and just about every prominent
conservative in the country) has virtually ignored what should be
one of this election year's top stories: the fact that President
George W. Bush wants to have every American citizen, beginning
with all school age children, examined by psychiatrists. However,
a couple of notable personalities, Lew Rockwell and Howard
Phillips, are attempting to alert the American people to this
diabolical plan.

In his Issues and Strategy Bulletin (HPISB#750-September 30,
2004), Phillips quotes Rockwell as saying, "The New Freedom
Initiative is a plan to screen the entire U.S. population for mental
illness and to provide a cradle-to-grave continuum of services for
those identified as either mentally ill or at risk of becoming so.
Under the plan, schools would become hubs of the screening
process, not only for children, but for their parents and teachers.
There are even components aimed at senior citizens, pregnant
women, and new mothers.

"In April 2002, President Bush established the New Freedom
Commission on Mental Health to conduct a 'comprehensive study
of the United States mental health service delivery system.' The
commission issued its recommendations in July 2003, chief among
them being that schools are in a 'key position' to screen the 52
million students and 6 million adults who work at educational
facilities."

This Draconian federal program began in Texas while G.W. Bush
was Governor. It was called the Texas Medication Algorithm
Project as an alliance between the pharmaceutical industry, the
University of Texas, and the mental health and corrections systems
of Texas. Now that Bush is President, he has begun implementing
the program at the national level.

Phillips also quotes Rockwell as noting that one pharmaceutical
company that is set to reap a potential financial windfall from the
Bush universal mental health screening plan is the Eli Lilly
Company by saying, "Eli Lilly has multiple ties to the Bush
administration. George Bush, Sr., was a member of Lilly's board
of directors. Lilly made $1.6 million in political contributions in
2000, 82 percent of which went to George W. Bush and the
Republican Party. President Bush appointed Lilly's chief executive
officer, Sidney Taurel, to a seat on the Homeland Security
Council."

A key component of the implementation of Bush's universal
mental health screening plan was to pass Ted Kennedy's No Child
Left Behind federal education bill, because one of the principle
features of the NCLB bill is to "remove the emotional, behavioral,
and academic barriers that interfere with student success in
school."

Using the NCLB bill, Bush's plan seeks not only to assess
youngsters, but "to expand school mental health programs and
evaluate parents." This involves "psychotherapy and drugs" and
"social and emotional check-ups." What this means is that "parents
are supposed to be surreptitiously assessed for mental 'illness'
every time they walk into their physician's office."

For anyone with even a modicum of history knowledge, this
smacks eerily similar to Joseph Stalin's "psychiatric hospitals" in
the former Soviet Union. This has also been a favored tactic of
Chinese Communists. Under those regimes, anyone not agreeing
with the political despots in power were determined to be
"mentally ill" and sent off to "hospitals" for "treatment."

It is hard to imagine a more sinister and potentially dangerous plan
than President Bush's universal mental health screening plan now
being implemented. If Bush is reelected, this plan will certainly
become accepted policy throughout the United States. This will
result in pharmaceutical companies such as Eli Lilly reaping
billions of dollars in profits and the American people being
subjected to unimaginable abridgements of privacy rights and
personal freedoms!

I submit that it is not America's school children who need a
psychiatrist, it is the people who would elect any president who
dares to implement such a Machiavellian plan!

Although claiming to be Christian, I do not trust anyone connected with the CP. The method in which they spin their half-truths is just plain wrong. Just be wary with them.

This article is meant, due to the wording, to be inflammatory. The language guides you to accept what they say about this "diabolical," or "draconian," or "machiavellian" plan.If anyone finds the facts untainted somewhere, then let us know! I doubt we ever will, find any facts through today's media. I've seen an ad that talks about the plan to invest a portion of the Social Security money to make it grow, instead of just sit there, like the system works now, but the ad says that Bush wants to gamble away our social security money in the stock market. Politics is about spin, it's about makng good look bad, and bad look good, that's why I prefer to stay out of it <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/dizzy.gif" alt="" />

Hi GottseiEhre,

I really have to agree with you here, the "slant" of this article is obvious and must be read with an eye to that! No true specifics of the plan were expressed just enough innuendo to create suspicion or outright rejection of the plan without the facts. Such is the "spin" of politics! May the Lord give "eyes to see" to the electors!

In His Hands,

Ruth
