THE CLIMATE QUESTION THAT NOBODY WILL ASK DURING THE 2020 ELECTION
TREY GOWDY JOINS FOX NEWS AS ANOTHER TALKING HEAD

YESTERDAY I WAS DISAPPOINTED BY MARK LEVIN (UPDATED)

Listening to Mark Levin’s broadcast on 2/15/19, I heard a different website announced, “truehealthcarefacts.com,” and the website does appear to feature legitimate links to informative information on healthcare…

Checking the Internet Database, we find that this site was created on January 9, 2019 and its owner has chosen to keep their registration details secret…

Does this mean that there was a production screw-up in the announced email address? Considering that Mark Levin cannot be everywhere at once and appears to be under stress from health and family issues, I am inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt. – steve

The new site appears to be associated with CASE, “Consumer Action for a Strong Economy, the nation's foremost non-profit, non-partisan organization devoted to the singular cause of promoting consumer interests through the advancement of free-market principles.” It does not appear to have any connection to the vitamin supplement people. Rather than deleting the post or changing the “bottom line,” let us just say I used the strike-out type overlay to indicate a wrong conclusion based on incomplete information.

Original Post…

One of my pet peeves is that so many publications, broadcast media, and websites, the audience which contains an older, aging, and health-conscious segment, often supports advertisers who feel, at least to me, scammy. Offering gold and silver products to preserve your wealth, expensive subscription continuity publications which exploit the scientific and medical literature to bring a measure of false hope to the afflicted and suffering. And, of course, the supplement sellers whose high-priced products are advertised – with disclaimers – as nutraceuticals or biopharmaceuticals that appear to remedy or alleviate medical-related conditions.

And while I support someone’s right to make money, I am still shocked to find that some of the most trusted names in the conservative arena appear to advertise or recommend what I believe are marginal products to their audience.

But today was somewhat different. I heard Mark Levin seamlessly transition from his normal constitutional conservative content into what appears to be a commercial on behalf of an industry under attack by the government.

Mark Levin’s commercial announcement… 

You're never surprised when I defend freedom and free markets, even when it is not popular. Because I don't care about what's popular, I care about what's right.  I care about liberty, and I care about what comes from liberty. 

And that's why I am speaking out against Secretary Azar's plan to tear down the most innovative sector of the American economy.

I'm talking about the biopharmaceutical industry, which is the innovation gem of our economy and the envy of the world.

The U.S. drug industry commits 90 billion dollars a year to R-and-D to bring more lifesaving technologies to market than any other industry in the world.

It's funny we didn't hear Kamala Harris talk about that.

And by doing that, they employ countless Americans.

Now, these are good-paying jobs that produce lifesaving work. But Secretary Azar's plan to socialize the U.S. drug industry by dictating what drug companies can charge and what certain drugs seniors can or cannot have access to, regardless of what their doctors may prescribe, will put lives at risk. Because he is attacking the same drug companies that produce the life-changing and life-saving drugs millions depend on.

Now you remember Obama's war on coal, this is starting to look like Azar's war on medical innovation.

We should be exporting freedom not importing socialist ideas that produce poverty, scarcity, and rationing. And, that's the key. But worst of all, his plan will kill the innovation needed to get the next breakthrough in cancer or Alzheimer's. 

I'm not going to sit by and let it happen and neither should you.

On the next day's podcast, he added an extension to the ending ...

"Because soon you will start hearing the propaganda. You're going to start hearing democrats and republicans coming around joining together to socialize pharmaceuticals. And, I can't think of a bigger disaster right now. I really can't. How much more of this are we going to take? I think that's the big question."

So I decided to visit TrueHealthFacts.com thinking I would see another attempt by the government to restrict the consumer’s choices and impose onerous rules and regulations on the drug industry. But I was truly shocked to find that the website was not what I expected. levin-thf

Instead of an industry-related defense of freedom, I found a pitch for Prodovite, “the greatest break through in the history of human nutrition.”

Bottom line…

I commend the marketers for using a topical tie-in and a trusted pitchman to present their products. I make no judgments about the company,  the product, or its advertising. What disappoints me is Mark Levin’s implied “bait and switch” tactics that lead me to believe that I would find information on an industry attack and wound up looking at supplements. Had it been a straight-up advertisement with the product name and description, I would have passed on visiting the website. I feel like I was the object of audio clickbait and I took the bait, hook, line, and sinker.

I believe that the ad appears to confuse and conflate legitimate pharmaceutical researchers and drug manufacturers with the often scummy and scammy pushers of dietary supplements, many of them doing little other than to drain your pocket. Readers should also beware that many of the anti-scam or review sites are actually affiliate links where the site owner/operator is paid for each product sale or click-through. A useful Federal Trade Commission Guide to Dietary Supplements can be found here.

I believe this will change the way I look at Mark – more as a businessman and less like an incorruptible patriot.
