Obama admin and pharmaceutical funded (RICO guilty) anti-tobacco activists target the tobacco industry....againThis article discusses the tobacco industry's request to have an unfavorable and questionable ruling dismissed.
Banzhaf (executive director of the group Action on Smoking and Health) says he doesn't think the industry's arguments hold merit. "The great majority of RICO cases don't involve organized crime like the Mafia, but rather involve businesses that engage in fraud and deception....
Businesses that engage in fraud & deception? Like when alternative nicotine (Nicoderm) manufacturer Johnson & Johnson company uses its private foundation Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) to covertly fund anti-tobacco groups and anti-tobacco legislation (smoking bans) in order to get laws passed which increase J & J (Nicoderm, Nicotrol, Nicorette, Commit, etc.) product sales?
If the tobacco industry is guilty of RICO charges, then so is the pharmaceutical nicotine industry and the anti-tobacco groups funded by them; groups like Banzhaf which have benefitted from RWJF support. To date RWJF has funded anti-tobacco groups $446+ million, as lawmakers are deceived about the source of those lobbying funds.
