Scientologists back David Jolly's bill to study relationship between psychiatric drugs and veteran suicide

By Alex Leary, Tampa Bay Times Washington Bureau Chief

Rep. David Jolly, whose ties to the Church of Scientology have generated recent news coverage, is pushing church-backed legislation to study the relationship between psychiatric drugs and veteran suicide.

“I know this type of opioid abuse has been a concern to the church and they have approached me about it as constituents,” the Pinellas County Republican said in an interview.

But he said the church, which is headquartered in Clearwater, did not write the legislation and that veterans groups have raised the issue, too, including Fleet Reserve Association and AMVETS.

Scientologists oppose psychiatry and the use of "mind-altering psychotropic drugs." The church’s Citizens Commission on Human Rights has backed Jolly’s “Veteran Suicide Prevention Act,” which was introduced in March and has attracted more than 20 co-sponsors, Republicans and Democrats.

In an April 7 website posting, CCHR said: “While many studies and reviews have been conducted by a host of government entities to determine the causes behind the increased number of veteran and military suicides, Congressman Jolly’s legislation is the only review to specifically question the psychiatric drug treatments that have become the mainstay of military/veteran mental health care. The need for this kind of comprehensive review is backed up by years of data.”

Jolly’s ties to Scientology made news this month when BuzzFeed News reported that his U.S. Senate campaign had edited his Wikipedia page to remove references to his association with the church.

This line was removed: “Jolly’s relationship with the Church of Scientology, which is based inside his congressional district in Clearwater, Florida, has been reported on in the press, including Jolly’s attendance at various fundraising events hosted by the organization.”

Last August, Jolly was a “guest of honor” at a Scientology’s Clearwater centennial celebration. His wife, Laura, also modeled for the church’s “Fashions with Flair” fundraiser. In 2014, Jolly appeared at a Clearwater fundraiser for Attorney General Pam Bondi hosted by Scientologists.

In a news release, Jolly said of the bill: “It is critical that we understand whether there is any impact of certain psychiatric drugs prescribed for issues like P.T.S.D., depression or traumatic brain injuries, on the decision of a veteran to take their own life. With veterans dying by suicide at a heartbreaking rate, we need to take a hard look at all possible factors in order to help prevent these tragedies.”

FL-Sen: Ben Carson Endorses DeSantis (R), Jolly's (R) Latest Bill Gets Backing From Scientologists

The reason why this is a big boost for DeSantis is because Carson was the preferred candidate in the GOP primary but of course he’s passing up on the race. But his endorsement of DeSantis could be what he needs to win his crowded primary. As for the party establishment’s preferred candidate, Rep. David Jolly (R. FL), there’s one group of people that just won’t leave him alone:

Re: Scientology backs David Jolly's bill regarding psychiatric drugs and veteran suic

To sum it up? scientology's political intelligence and warfare department aka SOCO or OSA or rebanded GO criminally convicted membership are at it as always.
Survey and find a societal ruin associated with delusional megalomaniac hubbard's mind bias. Cozy on up to some OLs with that bias seeded agenda, throw a few more seeds of hatred around to others they can influence and then step by step, use the connections to the OLs to promote their fox in the hen house pretended public benefit(focused on to maintain their 'charitable tax exemption status)

Invasion by political information control.....? Wasn't there a step on the SUPERPOWER project where it was to be 'delivered' to the government as one of its 3 main 'publics' ?

The cult knows zero about psychiatric drugs, brain chemistry or PTSD studies from accredited institutions like the NIH, CDC and numerous universities. Yet idiots like this politician give them credibility because they 'care about our veterans' (gag).

They deserve no mention in this discussion of veteran suicides. They have no credibility. The only reason they are against the use of "mind-altering psychotropic drugs" is be cause Ron said they were bad and psychiatry was evil...and that is quote.

LRH said psychiatry is evil...that is the only basis of the CCHR's stand. No scientists on staff, no use of scientific papers to support their position....nothing but the bullshit spewed from the rotten-toothed mouth of con artist and quack.

Wouldn't it be rich if studies show that the veterans that commit suicide are NOT taking their proper medications (which is highly likely)? Or that they go off of them and become suicidal rather than the other way around as the cult suggests?

Can you tell that I hate it when quackery gets a seat at the table of rational, scientific discussion? LOL

The Hill: First Rubio aftershock: Jolly ends Senate campaign, seeks reelection to House



http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box...n-for-rubios-senate-seat-seeks-re-election-to



* * * * * BEGIN EXCERPT * * * * *


Rep. David Jolly (R-Fla.) is ending his campaign for the Senate amid growing certainty that the incumbent, Marco Rubio, will reverse course and run for reelection.

Jolly is expected to make a formal announcement later on Friday.

On Friday morning, he said on CNN that Rubio is "saying he's getting in" the Senate race.

Jolly said earlier this week he didn't want to be subjected "to the whims" of Rubio's final decision.

"I think ultimately he decides to get in. Clearly the orchestration by Republican leadership on the other side of the aisle has shown their hand as well, and I think ultimately he accepts their recruiting effort to get back in," Jolly said.

Jolly was recently ripped by the National Republican Campaign Committee (NRCC) for claiming they told him to raise the equivalent of $18,000 per day to win reelection.

The NRCC denied those claims, calling it an attention-seeking stunt to boost his "lagging" Senate campaign, noting it spent more than $2 million to help Jolly in his first race for the House two years ago.

I don't think the Florida electorate understands that David Jolly is joined at the hip with Scientology
and their BFF, the Nation of Islam.

If Scientology partnered with David Duke, instead of Louis Farrakhan, would any elected official be caught within 10 miles of them? Of course not!

Farrakhan and Duke are 2 sides of the same bigoted and hateful coin. David Jolly has no business being in public office, with his support for such toxic people and organizations.

Does anyone remember the psych named Jolly who ODed the elephant with acid?

Scientology hated that Jolly.

(Shameless derail but what's with these Jolly(s)?)

The following article does not mention Scientology. It does, however, provide interesting information concerning Jolly's political future. It may not be bright.

Also, an update. When Rubio decided to run again for his Senate seat, Jolly dropped out of the Senate race and decided to again run against former Governor, former Republican and now Democrat Charlie Crist for the U.S. House of Representatives in a redrawn district.

How the GOP abandoned one of its own

Florida Rep. David Jolly battled his party over fundraising — and now he's a political pariah.

CLEARWATER, Fla.— Republicans say they’re fighting for every seat in the House. Every seat except Florida Rep. David Jolly’s, that is.

The first-term GOP incumbent is running a lone-wolf reelection campaign, fighting for his political life as Democrats aim to unseat him with a big name in Florida politics, former Gov. Charlie Crist. But Republican leaders have left him for dead, after a falling-out over money in politics, even though party strategists say they’re doing everything they can to protect the GOP’s House majority.

"When we win this, we will have done it our own way, with nobody owning us,” Jolly said in an interview, looking relaxed as he sat in the back booth of a local crab shack in his district on the shores of the Gulf of Mexico.

With just about 80 days left before the election, GOP leaders are bracing for a down-ballot disaster as Donald Trump falls further behind Hillary Clinton in the polls. But when it comes to Jolly, top Republicans are refusing to throw a lifeline to the embattled incumbent.

Hmm, in my limited knowledge of American politics, this sort of sounds like the Republicans want Hillary to win?

Or am I looking up the wrong tree?

I think you may have misspoken. Jolly is not running against Hillary for Congress. Jolly is running against former Governor, former Republican and now Democrat Charlie Crist.

There are two possibilities. One is that the Republican party wants Charlie Crist to win in order to punish Jolly and perhaps deter other Congressmen from not following the party line.

The other possibility is that the Republican party thinks the seat is a lost cause, and doesn't want to waste money on this race. I doubt this is true, but it is possible.

It was an attempt at sarcasm. :biggrin:

Like standing against one of their own(!) to allow the enemy to sneak past and/or win.

Just like with Trump, the Republican Establishment (and especially its donor establishment) would rather have the Democrat win, than allow in somebody who is not loyal to the Establishment.

The way politics works in the US, is you have big-money donors who finance campaigns (in BOTH parties), and in return expect access and favors when they later call the elected official. The donors don't care if the elected official is Republican or Democrat, as long as they pick up the phone when the donor calls.

1. David Jolly, R-Fla. (13th District)

Jolly, who spent most of the year running for Senate, climbs from No. 3 to No. 1 in his re-election race against former Gov. Charlie Crist. He's pledged not to solicit campaign donations, and he's unlikely to get any help from the National Republican Congressional Committee in this heavily redrawn seat.
