Coasttocoastam website summary of program:

Date: Monday - September 5, 2016
Host: George Noory
Guests: Richard Lertzman

In the first half, author and publisher Richard A. Lertzman discussed Dr. Max Jacobson, whom the Secret Service under JFK code-named "Dr. Feelgood." He developed a unique "energy formula" which contained methamphetamine and altered the paths of some of the 20th century’s most iconic figures, including President and Jackie Kennedy, Marilyn Monroe, and Frank Sinatra. Dr. Jacobson, who immigrated out of Nazi Germany, had trained with Karl Jung, and first developed a treatment for multiple sclerosis using methamphetamine. His injection formula that became popular with writers, celebrities, and politicians, not only included amphetamine, but such bizarre ingredients as sheep sperm, monkey gonads, human placenta, and steroids, Lertzman detailed.

The concoction "gave people instant power, instant energy, and took away their pain," but Dr. Jacobson never told patients what was actually in the formula. His intentions may have started out positive, but eventually he used the treatments to gain power over his clients such as JFK, who became addicted to the drug, and included Dr. Jacobson as part of his entourage. According to Lertzman's research, Marilyn Monroe was injected by him just before she went on stage to sing her famous rendition of "Happy Birthday Mr. President." Among "Dr. Feelgod's" famous patients were the writers Tennessee Williams, Truman Capote, and Rod Serling, actress Elizabeth Taylor, and baseball player Mickey Mantle. Jacobson was eventually disbarred from practicing medicine in New York state, and tougher drug laws were enacted in 1972 that curtailed these kinds of medical practices.

I listened to the interview of author Richard Lertzman on coasttocoastam last night. His presentation was devastating in regard to both JFK and Jackie. He claimed that he had access to Dr. Jacobson's medical files and records as well as a 200 page unpublished manuscript by Jacobson that were supplemented with interviews of key players in the saga.

The author said that Jacobson accompanied JFK to Vienna in 1961 when he had his meeting with Khrushchev and that Jacobson injected JFK twice with his "energy formula" before the meeting was held. Jacobson may have been an agent for the Soviets but in any case Khrushchev was fully aware of JFK's dependency on the injections.

The author said that Jackie depended on the injections not only when she was First Lady but up until her death, even after Jacobson lost his medical license after which she found another supplier. He said Jackie's early death was likely caused by the injections over the years.

Robert Kennedy and JFK's White House physician tried to cut Jacobson off from having contact with JFK but the President was adamant about continuing to get injections from the doctor.

Both the U.S. and Soviet Intelligence Communities were fully aware of JFK's dependency.

The author implied that he feared what would have happened if JFK had not been assassinated in 1963 and continued to be president.

But we do know what happened after his assassination. President Johnson promptly moved the Vietnam War into high gear so that his Texas supporters, Brown&Root and the oil companies, would reap hundreds of millions of dollars while 55,000 U.S service men and women died in the useless war. The CIA and the Military also reaped hundreds of millions of dollars (perhaps even billions over the years) from controlling the drug trade in Vietnam among American personnel and then bringing that trade back to the U.S. mainland.

Doug, I also listened to this C2C interview of Richard Lertzman.

How this one writer got access to Jacobson's private writings and records amazes me.

You would think that with so many explosive revelations that people of higher authority would go after these and confiscate them before hand.
