Delta Dental Exposed – Follow the Money – Part 1

CREDIT TO SECURE ARKANSAS, A Grassroots Organization

Delta Dental often comes to mind when dental plans are mentioned… but how much do we REALLY know about this organization and what they’re doing… besides paying dental claims?  Well, just follow the money!

This past Monday, Nov. 2, 2015, Secure Arkansas attended an Administrative Hearing conducted in Little Rock by the Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) whose aim, in part, was to force water districts to adhere to the water fluoridation mandate. As many of you know, we strongly oppose water fluoridation! This Administrative Hearing was recorded and will be sent out to our readers in the near future, so there will be a Part 2 of this article.  The web of deceit and duplicity of board members throughout the Delta Dental entities are very tightly woven, so be sure to click on all of the links provided.

We were all in shock when we learned that a Delta Dental representative, (Ebb)  Weldon Johnson from Texarkana, would be called as a witness for the ADH to try to bully a water operator into signing the Delta Dental contract. For a contract to be legally binding or valid, an agreement must be formed between two parties. Any contract that lacks an agreement between the two parties is NOT VALID. A water district cannot be forced to sign any contract with which they don’t agree, due to threats by any individual, group, or government agency.

We decided to do some more checking on Delta Dental and Weldon Johnson, and this article shows what we found.

Below are Mr. (Ebb) Weldon Johnson’s titles and affiliations, and we have included Jonesboro Mayor Harold Perrin, also, because he kept showing up on the board of the Delta Dental entities. The mayor is listed as Director of Omega Administrators in items 4 through 14 and items 17 through 20 below.

Delta Dental has a vast source of money available to promote their fluoride propaganda.  For instance, Delta Dental Plan of Arkansas transferred $3,443,301 to the Delta Dental Foundation of Arkansas – a foundation which makes the grants available for water fluoridation and/or start-up fluoridation costs.  (This information came from the IRS 990 filings shown below.) Omega Administrators, Inc. also funds Delta Dental of Arkansas Political Action Committee (PAC).   Omega Administrators, Inc. is owned and controlled by Delta Dental, and it appears to be a front company used for money laundering.  Omega Administrators, Inc. has been organized at one time or another in most of the 50 states and has been transferring money from one entity to another. (This is what is called money laundering and is done to hide the identity as to where the money originated and to where it was transferred.)

In the 2014 election, Delta Dental contributed large sums of money to the governor and legislative candidates for their campaign funds. Some of these legislators just happen to be on the Arkansas Health, Welfare and Labor Committee – a committee that deals with bills which come from the House or Senate and involve public health issues, including water fluoridation. When it came time to vote on the Fluoride Local Control bill (HB1355), “the fix was in”. At least three of the committee members received $1,000 or more from Arkansas Dental PAC. Do you think this helped to persuade the committee members to vote against (Nay) the Fluoride Local Control Bill? YES!  We believe so. This is bribery and against the law.  We have not forgotten who participated in the fluoridation of Arkansas’ water!

Everyone who is participating in administering toxic fluoride needs to be brought up on charges.

The Constitution of the State of Arkansas of 1874 addresses bribery of members of General Assembly or state officer from page 10 and 15:

§ 9. Persons convicted ineligible.

No person hereafter convicted of embezzlement of public money, bribery, forgery or other infamous crime, shall be eligible to the General Assembly or capable of holding any office of trust or profit in this State.

§ 35. Bribery of member of General Assembly or state officer.

Any person who shall, directly or indirectly, offer, give, or promise any money, or thing of value, testimonial, privilege or personal advantage to any executive or judicial officer, or member of the General Assembly; and any such executive or judicial officer, or member of the General Assembly, who shall receive or consent to receive any such consideration, either directly or  indirectly, to influence his action in the performance or non performance of his public or official duty, shall be guilty of a felony, and be punished accordingly.

The following list shows the corporate positions that Weldon Johnson holds within the Delta Dental companies and affiliates (and how he bullies or perhaps bribes the legislators, water operators, and government agencies into poisoning our public water supplies. Remember at the hearing Monday, Nov. 2nd, it came up that Delta Dental has the megabucks to force fluoridation onto people – whether they want it or not):
