My Name Is Savage, But I am Not Savage

Big Joe 5“Whatever happens to me benefits me.” – Joel Savage

Why many do ask me if ‘Savage’ is my real name? Once a British woman told me she hates her name ‘Mrs Ball’ and worst of all, my father’s name is ‘Mr. Underworld,’  she said. Yes, many of us have strange names. Some do change and others keep them.

I was born Joel Savage, at Cape Coast, in the central region of Ghana, on January 19, 1957, to Justin Savage, a professional journalist and Nancy-Elizabeth Hudson, an accomplished seamstress and a sewing teacher.

Last year, during my summer holidays in Barcelona, Spain, I gave one of my books to a student I met at the hotel I lodged. At the computer hall, I was flabbergasted when I saw his friends laughing at my name. I pretended I wasn’t listening to their conversation.

Then on January 1, 2016, history repeats itself. At the Kotoka International Airport in Accra, Ghana, when ready to board my flight, an officer at the last checkpoint controlled my passport and the only question he threw at me is: How do you pronounce this word? Pointing directly to the name, “Savage,” I answered.

“Well, I’m glad that you mentioned it yourself, because I thought that may provoke you if I had said the same thing.” He said and gave back my passport to me.

If names have impact on people, then I am exceptional. I am happily married since 1993 and still live with the same woman. If I’m savage, uncivilized, cruel or a beast, my wife wouldn’t have been with me today. My three sons can stand behind me and tell everyone how caring and compassionate their father is.

What I know about myself is, I have intrepid sort of character. I don’t give up and no one can break me down physically, psychologically, emotionally or spiritually. In my life, I take any misfortune as beneficial and every problem as a challenge, because you can’t survive in this world if you submit to problems.

This is the reason many people are depressed, alcoholics or drug addicts. Because they don’t have the will power to fight and overcome those destructive tendencies. Savage is just a name but it has no influence on me. I believe in God and the Bible is my shield and Armour.

Doctor, Who Claimed Vaccines Caused Autism, Dead Of Apparent Suicide?

Doctor 1

Dr. Jeff Bradstreet: Do we have to believe his story from the media or the American government?

Dr Jeff Bradstreet found dead in an apparent suicide in North Carolina

  • Bradstreet died of what seems to be self-inflicted gunshot wound to chest
  • Found in Rocky Broad River in Chimney Rock on June 19 by a fisherman
  • Bradstreet published research based on claim vaccines cause autism
  • The medical community says such claims have been disproved
  • US FDA agents searched his office for reasons unknown before his death

Anti-vaccine Dr Jeff Bradstreet was found dead in an apparent suicide in North Carolina after agents from the US Food and Drug Administration searched his office for reasons unknown.

The Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release issued this week that Bradstreet, 61, died of what appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest.

Bradstreet’s body was found in the Rocky Broad River in Chimney Rock on June 19 by a fisherman and rescue team divers responded to the scene and recovered a handgun from the river.

Bradstreet ran the Bradstreet Wellness Center clinic in Buford, Georgia, and published autism research based on the disputed claim vaccines cause autism.

The medical community says such claims have been disproved.

The clinic was raided by agents from the FDA who were receiving assistance from the Georgia Drugs and Narcotics Agency, the Gwinnet Daily Post reported.

Bradstreet is from Braselton, Georgia.

His body was sent to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center for an autopsy on June 23 and the case is still under investigation by the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office.

His family is raising funds online to investigate his death as some do not believe it was a suicide.

The investigator from the sheriff’s office, Jamie Keever, said: ‘I’ve talked to some of those people today.

‘I don’t know what to say. They have a right to their opinion.’

A GoFundMe page raising money to ‘find the answers to the many questions leading up to the death of Dr Bradstreet, including an exhaustive investigation into the possibility of foul play’ has already raised more than $15,000.

Fiona O’Leary of Autistic Rights Together [ART], responded to Bradstreet’s death and the call for an investigation into his death.

She said: ‘While it is very sad to hear of the death of Dr Bradstreet in such tragic circumstances, it is important to consider his position as one of the world’s leading practitioners in the field of bio-medical treatments for autism.

‘Many of these so called ‘treatments’ are unlicensed and unproven to be of any benefit to autistic people, indeed many can have serious and dangerous side effects on an individual’s health and well being.

‘Many supporters of Dr Bradstreet and the bio-medical industry are hailing him as a hero, claiming foul play at the hands of the government, yet the truth is more simple perhaps.

‘None of the many so called treatments or cures could ever be substantiated and proven to be effective or beneficial outside of the bio-medicals own propaganda machine.’
