1. There was no evidence of Russian collusion; no evidence of a crime to start an investigation of @POTUS

An investigation without evidence of a crime was a crime.

Fabricated evidence used to get a FISA warrant is fraud on the court; a crime.

Election meddling is a crime.
2. #WarOnYou: Sessions was implicated in the "Russian collusion" investigation, so, he recused himself.

As there was no crime, Sessions has sent a letter to the SC, informing the Justices he is un-recusing himself.

Buckel up; now comes the pain. The Hunter becomes the Hunted
Jason Chaffetz: "The Deep State is real & it's far worse than you can imagine."

According to Chaffetz, In the past Sessions would not prosecute those "Too Close to Hillary!"

"Trust Sessions"? Will he choose to be on the right side of history & prosecute?

A5. Yes I believe they are being conflated.

This is a 2005 narrative, shamelessly propped up in newspaper, TV & film media. #MedTraumaChat
A5. 15 years ago, sure ERs were more liberal with pain med scripts than they should have been.

Rich people who could pay off doctors too. But it's 2018. Most deaths are due to heroin and/ or pills ordered online laced with fentanyl. #MedTraumaChat
A5. But let's say they were correct. Why would restricting pills production and prescriptions still cause deaths from this so-called #opioidcrisis to rise? #MedTraumaChat

A1. The #opioidcrisis has completely disrupted my life.

A1. I finally had a program that worked, taking one opioid cousin, a pill for my nerves & a muscle relaxer plus weekly therapy.

I could work, had two businesses, employed people, hired freelancers, a social life, volunteered, travelled a lot. #MedTraumaChat
A1. Even before Obamacare when I had to pay cash, at least I had the option. It has gotten to the point now, after moving to TX, where I had to be drug tested every month for the mildest opioid-like pain pill. #MedTraumaChat

F.D.A. Did Not Intervene to Curb Risky Fentanyl Prescriptions
Physicians should be more closely limited in prescribing drugs not approved for other use.
The Fentanyl deaths scandal should be a warning, since Fentanyl is intended ONLY for use with cancers.
Part of the Fentanyl catastrophe and resultant opioid crisis is that FAR TOO MANY physicians prescribe (even as we speak), Fentanyl for people with chronic muscular or chronic nerve pain, instead of a more judicious use of combo NSAIDs and non fentanyl opioids.
Fentanyl needs to be reserved only for cancer patients.

Also we must find a better law enforcement approach to synthetic, illegal fentanyl. This is what opioid addicts turn to as their bodies adjust to heroin.
We need a true approach to the opioid crisis.

1/ A @Walgreens pharmacy in Northern California has caught the eye of DEA investigators.

It ordered unusually large amounts of the highly addictive opioids hydrocodone and oxycodone, according to an affidavit filed earlier this year.…
2/ This particular Walgreens purchased around twice the amount of both drugs as the next-largest buyer in its area, per the records: About 2 million doses of hydrocodone and 1 million of oxycodone.
3/ The DEA is curious about an “unexplained loss” in October 2016 of roughly 8,000 hydrocodone tablets, valued at $6,213.

Gail D’Onofrio, Chair of Emergency Medicine at Yale & national expert on emergency med’s role in staunching the opioid crisis, is giving the keynote at #SAEM18. Will push out highlights here.

She started with the faces of those lost to opioids. A knife to the heart.
(Side note: as a longtime mentor to me, D’Onofrio has never minced words. True with this talk: “Most doctors know very little about addiction.” Truth.)
She’s reviewing the pathophysiology of addiction and I’m think how so much of our life is spent chasing this neurotransmitter, dopamine. #saem18

(1) To my knowledge there's only only one policy issue on which I potentially disagree with President Trump. I say potentially because its so nuanced I can't yet be sure if we really disagree. It's on the issue of the proper medical uses of opioid therapy for chronic pain.
(2) Absolutely agree with Trump's laser focus on the #OpioidCrisis, which kills 60k p/a. Obama did very little to address the tragedy. I think his actions & omissions were what suited the health industry lobbyists. He also didn't want tougher sentencing if it affected minorities.
(3) Most of the opioid crisis is driven by illicit use, with drugs trafficked illegally from cartels or the diversion of pharma drugs from the supply chain before they are lawfully dispensed by pharmacies.

Greater focus needed at #VA please. It’s not Fixed yet. Needs huge focus on PTSD which affects millions of veterans. Mental health is bigger than even the #OpioidCrisis Try this: Stop Making Veterans With #PTSD🇺🇸. How many countries are we bombing now? 7? 8?
Many #VietnamVets had ongoing #MentalHealth treatment for #PTSD. But when a huge influx of #IraqVets appeared with #PTSD the #VietnamVets #MentalHealthCounseling was DISCONTINUED! As if they were suddenly cured. Now #Vets with #PTSD cannot be accommodated. Too many!!!
Stop fucking #BOMBING and Stop making more and more #Vets with #PTSD

1) #MKULTRA is misunderstood. The #ConspiracyTheories have merit, but #weaponization goes well beyond #hollywood movies into the realm of things that are hard to imagine we'd do.

When resources are unlimited, you get the best weapons. This is a story about the CIA.

2) You corrupt congress into submission, get ultimate secrecy, and then collectively head down the rabbit hole. The #CIA has almost limitless power, and we were dumb enough to give it to them
3) The original intention of #MKULTRA may have been understanding mind control, and was to prevent other world powers from using it, but then it evolved into something different. Wildly different. #conspiracy

Someone labeled #QAnon a #conspiracytheory

It's not.

I can objectively show more than once what @realDonaldTrump was about to tweet before he did it and also show coordination between Q and the DOD, and Q and @JulianAssange.

Huge events are happening, it's time to awaken.
2) in addition, while it's still being uncovered, there are deeply coded messages within @realDonaldTrump tweets. The specific intentions behind all of this are many, but one vital one is to specifically prevent #conspiracytheories from being concocted.
3) Another reason disclosure is self evident, it's a public disclosure. It so happens that the disclosures are happening in a location where the user base is sufficiently #redpilled to accept the #truths -they are a bit tough to take for #normies
