Vardenafil HCl is the Fastest Acting ED Medication

It cannot be denied that most men with erectile dysfunction (ED) owe Viagra a ‘thanks’ because it was them who pioneered ED medications.  If not for them, there might be no ED medications today.  Of course, this does not mean you will need to stick to that brand forever because there are other and much better ED medications in the market today than that of V…ra.  Take for instance, vardenafil HCl.  This ED drug is considered to be the most effective there is and has even surpassed Viagra in terms of efficacy.

According to different surveys performed, Viagra only has an average of 84% efficacy, whereas vardenafil HCl dominates it with 86% percent.  While the 2% may not seem much, if you belong to that group, then it means a lot.  For this reason, a lot of previous Viagra users have switch ship and are now taking vardenafil HCl as their preferred ED treatment drug of choice.  They even claim that they now experience fewer side effects ever since they moved to using vardenafil HCl.

CMA-sponsored reward never paid to abortion-assassin informant

Informant feels betrayed over terms of CMA’s $500k offer

For two years, at the FBI’s behest and with a promise of more than $1 million in reward money, an American man infiltrated the secretive anti-abortion terrorist network that backed the elusive sniper James Kopp -- the man who murdered an American physician and allegedly shot three Canadian doctors who performed abortions.

In 2001, the informant, who now lives under the assumed name Jack Steele, discovered where Mr. Kopp was hiding out in France. Mr. Kopp was arrested, brought back to the United States, found guilty of murdering Buffalo obstetrician Barnett Slepian, and sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole.

The FBI eventually passed along its share of the reward: US$700,000. To this day, however, now nearly seven years since Mr. Kopp’s conviction, the US$547,000 Canadian portion of the reward -- up to $500,000 of which would have come from the Canadian Medical Association -- has never been paid.

When Mr. Steele was approached by the FBI in 1999, he says they promised him $1.2 to $1.3 million for his help -- the total of the American and Canadian rewards -- but they didn’t mention that the CMA had set conditions on its reward.

“There were some limited conditions on the reward -- namely, that the information had to lead to a conviction in the cases concerning the specified doctors [the three Canadians: Garson Romalis, Hugh Short, Jack Fainman] and any arrests in these cases had to have been made by June 1, 2003,” the CMA said in a statement. “None of these conditions were met.”

After Mr. Kopp was put away for life, Canadian authorities reportedly had enough evidence to be satisfied that the danger to abortion providers was gone. BC and Manitoba never filed charges, and Ontario dropped its charges last May. Canadian officials never sought to extradite or try Mr. Kopp in Canada. Mr. Steele feels they “deceived” him.

The Canadian task force is “conveniently using Kopp’s U.S. murder conviction to avoid paying a half-million-dollar reward,” accuses Jim Popkin, a retired NBC News investigative reporter who’s supporting Mr. Steele. “Now that Kopp is off the streets, and Canadian doctors are safe, the task force’s work magically is done. But the tipster who saved the day has been forgotten, victim to a legal technicality.”

“I did the physical footwork of over two years to catch him,” Mr. Steele says. He wore a wire, participated in vandalizing U.S. abortion clinics with criminals, and managed to track down the man widely accepted to have been responsible for shooting three Canadian physicians in their homes. He says the FBI told him that would be sufficient to claim the CMA’s reward. He only learned after the fact that it was not.

    Jack Steele is a hero who got a crazed killer off the streets. He deserves this reward. And yet the CMA and the Canadian police task force that publicized the reward when the danger was high have now abandoned Steele and simply won't pay their debt.

    What message does that send to other prospective tipsters in Canada? That's why Jack has created a website to educate other tipsters contemplating assisting the police: http://canadianpolicereward.org

    The James Kopp wanted poster stated clearly that a $547,000 reward would be paid for "information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for these [doctor] shootings." Jack Steele provided that information, and the FBI has sent two letters to the Canadian task force demanding that Steele be paid the reward. The FBI filed Jack's reward application with Canadian authorities prior to the designated deadline, and the FBI to this day supports his legal claim to the funds.

    The CMA is hiding behind a dubious legal technicality in refusing to pay its debt. What an odd message for a physicians' organization to send. It's essentially saying, "We will offer a publicity-seeking reward to protect our doctors, but will weasel out of paying once the danger has passed." I would hope that doctors who belong to CMA spend time reading Steele's website to learn what really happened, and will ask the CMA to explain the change of heart.

    One last point: Steele has stayed in touch with Canadian police officials on a regular basis for nearly a decade, and they kept encouraging him month after month. Never once did the task force tell Steele (or the FBI) that it and the CMA would not pay the reward if Kopp was convicted only in a U.S. court. That came out of nowhere when it was clear the bill was past due--and the spotlight on the case was off.

    Jack Steele risked his life to help protect Canadian doctors, and now the CMA refuses to pay its debt to him.

    Since "anyone'"and " everyone" knows that every person in a dispute believes they are right........
    ......we have "arenas" where these matters can be solved:

    1. the " court of public opinion " .......which can build "critical mass" to send the voice of the populace to the decision-makers.
    hmmmmmmm ....how often does that occur when only one person has bben ?wronged?

    2. mediation....... where all kinds of evidence of " goodwill" and " operating in good faith" are examined ( the " spirit" of the law/contract...not just the " letter" of the law/contract )

    3. the "courts of justice" where the "letter " of the law is followed according to a system of " enforceable" contracts.

    I would suggest #2 by the complainant after educating himself on all the evidences the "mediator" seeks that demonstrates "acting in good faith " by all parties concerned.
    The power of " anyone" (the singular party) and "everyone" ( the plural party) are placed on level ground in mediation.

    The court of public opinion is a "shooting match" in a High Noon scenario.

    Mediation is simply a " duel" .

    Quiz for the day:

    Anyone and Everyone
    Went down to the river
    To swim.

    Anyone drowned
    Who was left to fall in?

    i took the time looked at the web site www.canadianpolicereward.org the facts are there. canada is safer, non threating from zealots terrorists. sharon what is it that you are trying to convey to the public, trying to mediate in the court system. kopp is off the canadian streets. its public record that kopp was the shooter in canada police have his dna in 1 of the shootings. canadian police pay mr steele the reward as stated in reward poster. my final thoughts are shame on canada to treat tipsters in this manner. again shame shame on canadian police.one more final thought hope in the future if there is going to be another kopp, tipsters think twice before getting involved with police. getting it in writing obtain an attorney to protect yourself from calous non caring canadian police agencies.

    Hello anonymous.....

    You asked:

    "sharon what is it that you are trying to convey to the public"

    My answer:

    Is in the quiz I provided:

    'Anyone and Everyone
    Went down to the river
    To swim.
    Anyone drowned

    Who was left to fall in?'

    ...obviously "everyone"..

    Essentially......

    We are in this life together...and there are lots of " free rider" situations with the mindset " why should I pay..the bus had to go on that route anyway?

    If you functioned in some deputization "from" you are probably "in" a contract position.
    If you functioned in some deputized role "for" you probably "need" a contract.

    If you have either one of these types of " contracts.. they are enforceable in the courts.

    If you do not have either one of these contracts...... your only recourse is mediation.

    if you choose mediation you need to present yourself as having played the role of " bounty hunter"..... NOT " vigilante".... in order to succeed.

    On a personal note:

    I would never, personally, let money be the determinant of my decision to perform a public good.

    Considering Helping Canadian Police For A Reward?
    Author: JMedia Welcome. My name is Jack Steele. In 2001, at great personal risk, I helped the FBI and Canadian police arrest a killer–one of the most wanted men in the world.

    I helped because it was the right thing to do. But I also did it for the money—a promised $1 million reward.

    After the murderer’s arrest and conviction, the FBI paid me their share of the reward, just like they said they would. But the Canadian police groups that had promised a $547,000 reward back when they needed my help have now turned their backs on me. They won’t pay me a dime.

    The lesson? When you’re dealing with Canadian police, a promise made is not a promise kept.

    I created this website as a resource–and a warning–for other tipsters who may be considering helping Canadian police groups in exchange for a reward.



    Tipsters, Beware!
    The police will try to dazzle you with promises of rich rewards. But unless you demand written assurances up front, and treat the relationship like a cold-blooded lawyer negotiating a business deal, you could end up risking your life for nothing.

    So think twice before cooperating in Canada.

    If you already are a tipster in a criminal case, or are contemplating helping the police in Canada to crack a case, I want to hear from you. CLICK HERE TO EMAIL US your story, and I will treat your information confidentially. Or CLICK HERE TO LEAVE A COMMENT on the open blog, so everyone can read more.

    I have been collecting other examples of tipsters who have been deceived by the police in Canada, and will turn over my findings to the media and Canadian lawmakers. I want to ensure that anyone who puts their life on the line in a criminal case in Canada, and lives up to the terms of a reward offer, gets the money that he or she deserves.


    My Story
    Jack Steele is not my real name. I can no longer use my real identity, or reveal my whereabouts, because I helped infiltrate a dangerous group of anti-abortion radicals who still might try to harm me.

    In 1999, at the FBI’s urging, I penetrated an extremist anti-abortion organization that was operating in Canada and the U.S., shooting doctors who performed legal abortions in both countries. After almost two years undercover, I was able to learn the secret address in France where the group’s triggerman, James Kopp, was hiding. I gave the address to my FBI handler, and Kopp was arrested days later.

    Together, the FBI and a group of Canadian police organizations were offering more than $1 million in reward money for information leading to Kopp’s arrest and conviction. Here’s the Canadian Wanted Poster for Kopp, announcing a $547,000 reward.

    After Kopp’s conviction, the FBI determined that I deserved the reward money, and the FBI paid me its share. But today, eight years after Kopp’s arrest and nearly three years after his federal conviction, the Canadian police groups refuse to pay up.

    My story is just one example of what really happens to tipsters in the Canadian justice system, after the arrest is made and the newspaper headlines fade. Don’t make the same mistakes I made. READ MORE.
