Convention of States!


Why are we still trusting the FDA?

Published in Blog on July 28, 2022 by COS Staff Writer

The Food and Drug Administration has become a deceitful and manipulative agency with countless examples of decisions that go against the good of the people.

Like many agencies in the federal government, the FDA receives billions of dollars in funding annually. Unfortunately, the FDA along with the Department of Education, the FBI and the IRS have all been infiltrated and corrupted.

Americans have increasingly grown to realize this. It’s been a difficult idea to ponder that the people in our government are essentially working against We the People, but it’s an important thought free-thinking, self-governing Americans have been confronted with as a result of improper treatment physically, financially, intellectually and legally.

While it’s common knowledge that the FDA rapidly gave emergency authorization to the Covid-19 vaccine developed by Pfizer, Moderna and J&J, there’s more behind the FDA that should've had Americans more skeptical long ago.

The Food and Drug Administration was formed in 1906 under the Pure Food and Drugs Act. According to the agency’s website, the FDA was a way to “rein in long-standing, serious abuses in the consumer product marketplace.”

Besides the fact that the FDA continues to emergency authorize Covid-19 vaccines – just recently for children – let’s take a look at some of the most controversial items the federal agency has shockingly approved for market:

  • rBST and rBGH growth hormones – approved in 1993
    • Made in a lab using genetic technology. Consumption linked to increased cancer risk & higher blood levels of IGF-1.
    • Banned in Canada and Europe due to health concerns.
  • Round-up Ready (glyphosate) – approved in 1996
    • Herbicide-resistant crops like corn, soy and canola survive the weed-killer.
    • WHO considers glyphosate a “probable carcinogen.” Banned or restricted in many U.S. states. Currently banned in Austria, Saudi Arabia, Vietnam and in Germany by 2023. Approved in the EU until Dec. 15, 2022.
    • A new study finds traces of glyphosate detected in 80% of American urine samples.
  • Aspartame – approval process started in 1980s
    • Studies find it induces brain tumors, accounts for over 75% of the adverse reactions to food additives reported to the FDA.
    • Originally banned twice in the U.S. Banned in Japan.

Additional fun fact – Did you know that the European Union has banned the importation of American chickens due to the chlorination wash process used in America?

So much for reining in the serious abuses in the consumer product marketplace, right? The agency should be defunded because the people inside it don’t have the right intentions when it comes to health and safety.

The one thing that the consumer can NEVER do is sue the FDA for approving defective or harmful drugs. As part of the federal government, the FDA conveniently falls under a legal concept called “sovereign immunity.” This means that it is immune from lawsuits with complete exemption against its responsibilities for licensing and approving drugs and vaccines, according to

So again – why are we still trusting the FDA?

Enough questioning. It’s time to clean house or get rid of the corrupted FDA. With its failure to actually make decisions based on safety instead of convenience, it’s clear We the People are better off deciding what’s best to consume for ourselves.

Convention of States seeks to take power away from the federal government and its wasteful, useless agencies. The FDA has shown the health of the American people are not its top priority, which is why we must make a change using Article V of the Constitution.

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention to proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington DC.

I support Convention of States; a national movement to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of an Article V convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here:

I ask that you support Convention of States and consider becoming a co-sponsor. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have: or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.
