Government raids, terrorizes Christian health ministry for not complying with unlawful demands
by: Ethan A. Huff
Speaking the truth about the curative properties of natural foods and herbs is considered illegal by the U.S. government. The “land of the free” simply does not tolerate freedom of health speech that goes against the group think of mainstream medicine, and millions of tax dollars are spent every year by government agencies to threaten, intimidate, and ultimately shut down companies and ministries that provide natural health products and information to the public. And one such ministry, Daniel Chapter One (DC1), recently bore the brunt of government tyranny when it was raided by a horde of government officials for refusing to kowtow to illegal demands.
Last year, NaturalNews featured an exclusive report on the DC1 case that you can read for yourself at:
It all started back in 2007 when the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) launched an internet sting called “Operation False Cures”. Its aim was to rid the U.S. of any and all competition to the conventional cancer industry, which includes natural supplements that provide anti-cancer benefits. The FTC targeted at least 130 companies that were selling anti-cancer herbal supplements and ordered them to stop making all health claims about their products or else face fines and jail time. The agency also ordered the companies to sign documents saying that they had been engaging in illegal activity, even though none of them were proven guilty of committing anything illegal.
Every company on the target list ended up caving to the pressure and complying with the rogue demands, eventually settling out of FTC court — except for DC1. DC1 refused to comply with the FTC’s unlawful demands and instead stood up for its free speech rights. Outraged over the ministry’s non-compliance, the FTC then issued a cease and desist order against DC1 to intimidate them further. But the ministry challenged that order with an appeal, and is currently awaiting a proper hearing by a real judge over the matter.
