In the video below, you will hear a riveting interview by Kerry Cassidy of Project Camelot with a man who has eloquence, intelligence, vision, and above all honesty and a passion for justice.
Attorney Jonathan Emord contends that the drug companies own congress. They control the passing of laws in their favor. They get passed almost 100% of laws that they want to put into force. They write and decide what congress will pass. They influence the FDA commissioner, push drugs with adverse side-effects, and they heavily influence the conduct of congress.
Jonathan Emord is an American attorney who practices constitutional and administrative law. He represents food and dietary supplement manufacturers, physicians who practice integrative medicine, and non-profit groups, and is the only non-scientist board member of the Certification Board for Nutrition Specialists.
In 1999, Emord defeated the Food and Drug Administration in the landmark First Amendment case Pearson v. Shalala. He went on to defeat the FDA in federal court an additional seven times, six on First Amendment grounds making him the only attorney in American history to have achieved 8 victories over the FDA.

He has written eloquently in his book The Rise of Tyranny about how the constitutional Republic of the United States has, especially since the 1930’s, been undergoing a radical transformation from a republic into a bureaucratic oligarchy, where now 250 regulatory commissions possess governing control on the federal level to the extent that 9/10ths of all law made by the Federal Government is not the product of those we elect, but is rather the product of regulation created by the unelected heads of these bureaucratic agencies.
His premise is that the government of the US was based on 2 founding principles, without which a republic cannot exist.
1) that the government is based upon the consent of those who are governed
2) that a just government defends the rights of the governed.
Why is his book called The Rise of Tyranny?
Because it focuses on how these bureaucratic agencies, equipped with such all-encompassing power, rule without restraint and have replaced a limited Federal Republic, with an unlimited bureaucratic oligarchy. He makes a strong case for the belief that they are raining terror down on specific sectors of the marketplace, that are disfavored by them.
Thomas Jefferson’s 1st Inaugural Address in 1801:
“A wise and frugal government shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor, the bread it has earned.”
Jonathan Emord believes that today, we have the opposite of what Jefferson described. “We have a government that is replacing our freedom of choice, with what the political powers think is in our best interest, even if it disagrees with what we consider to be in our own best interest.”
