Meet the Jewish Family Making Billions From The Opioid Crisis

The Jewish Daily Forward

If you’ve ever been to a famous art museum or glanced around a prestigious university, you’ve probably seen a wing or building named after a member of the Sackler family. But many may not know that the family’s fortune comes from selling pharmaceuticals—most notably OxyContin, the addictive painkiller at the center of America’s opioid epidemic.

A new profile in Esquire chronicles the life and business practices of Arthur, Mortimer and Raymond Sackler, three brothers from a Jewish immigrant family who built a medical empire. Their descendants privately own Purdue Pharma, which was instrumental in using lobbying and advanced marketing techniques to convince doctors of the need to manage patients’ pain—and then prescribe OxyContin to manage it.

As OxyContin use ballooned in the 1990s and 2000s, so did addiction. Journalist Christopher Glazek noted that under the direction of Richard Sackler, Raymond’s son, “Purdue responded [to criticism] with symbolic concessions while retaining its volume-driven business model. To prevent addicts from forging prescriptions, the company gave doctors tamper-resistant prescription pads; to mollify pharmacists worried about robberies, Purdue offered to replace, free of charge, any stolen drugs.”

In 2007, Purdue was fined $600 million by the federal government for lying to doctors about the potential for patients to abuse OxyContin. No members of the Sackler family were named in the case.

    Evil runs in their veins.

    See, the question I think we need to ask ourselves is … would it be fit and proper to allow a tribe of Hottentots to create our money supply (out of thin air) and charge interest on it?

    “No!” I hear you cry. “We don’t want a bunch of bungs printing our money!!”

    “But surely that would be racist, would it not? I mean, just cos their skin is black, why shouldn’t they print the money?”

    “Well … they haven’t got the math.”

    “Well, let’s just say they did have the math.”

    “We don’t want no self-interested tribal group printing our money, period!” I hear you retort.

    And yet, this is what we have allowed the Jews to do. For several millennia.

    And this is how they have taken over the world. Taken over the political process. Taken over the drug trade. And taken over the bagel industry.

    Would it be, ahem, ‘anti-semitic’ to suggest that Jews never again be allowed access to the Mint?

    Or indeed anything to do with finance?

    “The Khoikhoi (“people people” or “real people”) or Khoi, spelt Khoekhoe in standardised Khoekhoe/Nama orthography, are a group of Khoisan people native to southwestern Africa. Unlike the neighbouring hunter-gatherer San people, the Khoikhoi traditionally practised nomadic pastoral agriculture. When European immigrants colonised the area after 1652, the Khoikhoi maintained large herds of Nguni cattle in the Cape region. The Dutch settlers labelled them Hottentots (Dutch: Hottentotten), in imitation of the sound of the click sounds that are characteristic of the Khoekhoe language, but today this exonym is considered derogatory and offensive.” – Wikipedia

    I love these expose’s in magazines that no one reads, such as Esquire. There have been previous ‘expose’s’ written on the Sackofsh*t family in places hardly anyone, except for those in the know, would read them. To this day, most people think the opioid problem is something akin to cocaine from Mexico, brought in over the border (with the intelligence services of course). No one of any import in the media will tell the truth about this family and they have gotten away with their criminality and there’ll be no change in that, unless some street justice is employed.

    And, lest we forget, the importation of heroin compliments of the CIA harvesting the poppy fields in Afganistan. Oxycontin, which is expensive on the street and can no longer be afforded by the already addicted, heroin steps-in to fill the gap: it’s much cheaper but the destructive properties are worse since one knows not the strength of what they’re buying. Thus, the death count from overdoses continues to mount. If anyone believes that the Judiacs do not have a finger in the opium trade: think again. It’s just another scheme in the hate-filled minds of these psychopaths to destroy more of the goyim.

    The Sassoon family (Jews), China, and the opium “wars”. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

    There’s bad people everywhere and in all religions. This site focuses on Jews. What’s your background? I can guarantee there’s a boatload of shit and smut and terribleness in there, too. It’s fine to call out this family for their greed which has lead to a devastating epidemic in the US, and it’s also fine to call out the thousands of priests who have molested children for decades. Both are evil and wrong and predatory. Human beings are capable of a lot of harm and a lot of good. Not sure how I would categorize this site. Probably the former because of it’s gross bias (see your image above)

    ed note–Prima facie example as to how we have gotten into the mess we are in and why there is little (if any) hope of getting out of it.

    Does our holier than thou commenter dispute the facts of the case as put forward by the most JEWISH of all news outlets in America, the Jewish Daily Forward?

    Yahweh, forbid.

    Instead, it is the typical nonsense about ‘hate’ and about how ‘there is good and bad everywhere’ and ‘let’s not blame an entire group because of the bad behavior of a few’.

    It has been under this umbrella of protection that Jews have throughout the millenia–escaped the censure and prosecution that has been due them as a result of their criminal behavior and which has brought us to the Apocalyptic point where we all find ourselves today.
