Between September 2019 and September 2020 alone, opioid overdoses killed a staggering 87,000 Americans – a new record-high. Facing an estimated 2,600 lawsuits11,12 relating to its role in the opioid epidemic, Purdue filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in September 2019, as a way to avoid litigation losses. Just over a year later they pleaded guilty to three federal criminal charges, including violating a federal anti-kickback law, conspiracy to defraud the U.S. government and violating the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act. The company agreed to pay $8.3 billion in fines, forfeiture of past profits and civil liability payments to settle the charges, but short on cash – having transferred more than $10 billion of the company’s funds into family trusts and offshore accounts – the company was dissolved and its remaining assets used to erect a “public benefit company” owned and controlled by the U.S. government.18 Future earnings will supposedly be used to combat the opioid crisis. Purdue’s PR Company Sued for Deceptive Marketing While Purdue’s owners, the Jewish Sackler family, got off scot-free, states struggling with the exorbitant cost of opioid addiction aren’t ready to bury the hatchet just yet. Instead, some are going after the PR firm Purdue hired to run their deceptive marketing campaigns. As it turns out, that PR firm is none other than Publicis, a partner of the World Economic Forum, which is leading the call for a Great Reset. As detailed in “The Web of Players Trying to Silence Truth,” Publicis appears to be coordinating the global effort to suppress information that runs counter to the technocratic narrative about COVID-19, its origin, prevention and treatment – suppression and censorship that has been repeatedly aimed at this website specifically.
