    Thanks for posting this, Wonder.

    I don't have time at the moment to go through everything you posted...but, just one quick thing for now (I will return to this later)

    The Reibling money is what goes into the research and promotion of PBM.

    Here is one medical study that has been supported by the Reiblings:

    http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/trf.14006/full

    *note all the JWs listed as authors on that study

    A clear $$$$ line that connects the JW blood doctrine to the blood industry. Profiting from the blood doctrine.

    Hi Nonnie :)

    Okay, WonderofYou, I had a bit of time to put some stuff together about the "Laura and Lorenz Riebling Family Foundation" (I smell another Reibling installment....)

    Firstly, your title is a bit misleading - the foundation is not "starting". It has been around since 2006.

    I downloaded the information from the 990 forms for the "Laura and Lorenz Riebling Family Foundation" and I will condense the activity that has occurred with the foundation since 2004/5.

    2006 - 990 return

    gift to foundation - 15,000

    paid out - 38,500

    Returns for 2015 and 2016 were not available.

    There are several noteworthy contributions to various entities that deserve some more comments and background information. I will return with a better look at the "bloodless" $support that the Reiblings have offered to that indu$try.

    In 2005/6 (2007 return), the Reiblings gave $26,000 to the Blood Conversation Support Foundation and then again, the following year, they gave the same foundation $148,000 for a total of $174,000.

    What/who is The Blood Conservation Support Foundation?

    https://www.guidestar.org/profile/20-8429198

    2007
    MISSION STATEMENT
    To educate medical professionals, medical Institutions, medical service payers, and the general public, Including those in developing countries, with conservation and avoidance techniques for the use of blood in medicine.
    PRINCIPAL OFFICER
    Barak K. Baker, President

    And...who is Barak. K. Baker? The president of this blood conservation foundation?

    http://jwemployees.bravehost.com/NewsReports/2062.html

    Leroy Dale Baker was the founding incorporator of the Wyoming Congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Dale Baker's son and business partner, Barak Kerns Baker, aka "Barry" Baker is/was a member of the Cascade Congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Leroy Dale Baker made his millions as the founder of Grand Rapids' "Dale Baker Automotive Group". A subsidiary, Circuit Leasing, Inc., once leased automobiles to the WatchTower Society for its 500 or more traveling "Overseers" assigned throughout the United States -- until Baker eventually sold out his auto business operations.


    Barak K. Baker was the Manager of Circuit Leasing, Inc. (Thereafter, the WatchTower Society cut out the middleman and formed its own "Circuit Vehicles" auto leasing subsidiary, which allows this subsidiary company to purchase vehicles directly from auto manufacturers and lease such back to the main corporation.) "Barry" Baker is currently President of the BLOOD CONSERVATION SUPPORT FOUNDATION, whose large expenditures over the years seems to indicate a significant asset for the WatchTower Society's anti-blood transfusion agenda.

    L. Dale Baker is also a founding Trustee of JAH-JIREH HOMES OF AMERICA, which is a Jehovah's Witness owned, operated, and occupied retirement community located near Allentown, Pennsylvania. Dale Baker is also the father-in-law of Judah B. Schroeder, who is a former WatchTower Society Attorney and the son of deceased WatchTower Governing Body member, Albert D. Schroeder.

    Baker's blood conservation foundation doesn't seem to be active anymore:

    This organization has not appeared on the IRS Business Master File in a number of months. It may have merged with another organization or ceased operations.
    This organization's exempt status was automatically revoked by the IRS for failure to file a Form 990, 990-EZ, 990-N, or 990-PF for 3 consecutive years. Further investigation and due diligence are warranted.

    Thanks nonnie and crow, I am stunned. Profound. This gives us the opportunity to see who knows whom, and who is who.

    Well yes, in the meanwhile I also checked that this foundation is not new at all, sorry, as I read the older comments in this forum that go long back, but anyhow , it seems that Laura and Lorenz are alway starting something knew, waiting in the starting blocks.

    Wonder: it seems that Laura and Lorenz are alway starting something knew, waiting in the starting blocks.

    The next contribution that the Reiblings made in 2006/7 was certainly another "starting block". Or, more accurately, it was probably "seed money" - to grow another sprout off the PBM tree.

    That contribution - for the Medical Society for Blood Management, in Vienna Austria - grew a pretty big tree. Huge tree, in fact. It is this society - the MSBM - that allows the Reiblings to make the claim that they supported the medical research that is linked at their site. And, it grew into the society as the 'push' behind the European Commission publishing the two documents that are also linked there.

    This will take a while to unpack.

    First - what/who is the Medical Society for Blood Management?

    That particular society - another "bloodless" one - didn't show up until around 2006/7. And, it seems to be a pretty obscure and exclusive society. It doesn't have the visibility of its predecessor - the Society for the Advancement of Blood Management (formed 2000/1) - and I had a difficult time chasing down the very few mentions of it online.

    So far, from what I can put together, the MSBM was formed with individuals who also held the membership in the SABM - notably, Shannon Farmer and Axel Hofmann.

    Both Farmer and Hofmann are Jehovah's Witnesses. (Farmer ascended the HLC ladder). At the time they would have received a 'contribution' from the Reibling foundation, they were working on government contracts in Australia to promote and implement the PBM program in all of Australia. Two JWs - in charge of an entire country's blood supply.*

    *there is lots about that unlikely alliance online, including current practices in PBM in Australia

    It appears like the MSBM was set up as a liaison between Shannon/Farmer...just another part of the web...the blood management web that the WTS started and the JWs are an active part of. This blood management society was set up in Austria - Hofmann's turf. Right about the time of the Australian PBM launch.

    We know that the Hofmann is part of MSBM because this study, published in 2011, says this

    Correspondence: Axel Hofmann, M.E., Medical Society for Blood Management, Schlossplatz 14, 2361 Laxenburg, Austria. Telephone:
    43-664-3005092; Fax: 43-2627-47854; e-mail: axel.hofmann@bloodmanagement.org Received March 22, 2011;

    We also know that Farmer is connected to the MSBM because the study (published 2017) that the Reibling page links to, says this:

    Shannon L.Farmer reports personal fees from Thieme (Stuttgart, Germany)
    and Elsevier Science USA and nonfinancial support from the
    National Blood Authority (Australia), the Medical Society for Blood Management, and The Health Round Table, outside the
    submitted work.

    That successful alliance has led to this:

    https://ec.europa.eu/newsroom/sante/item-detail.cfm?item_id=57139

    Axel and Shannon have put Reibling's seed money to good use. With a little help from their friends.

    The friends that the WTS has so rigorously and religiously pursued. Those guys. The ones that the WTS/HLC has targeted to join their "bloodless cult"

    First - what/who is the Medical Society for Blood Management?

    Medical Society for Blood Management MSBM

    MSBM is registered as “Medizinische Gesellschaft f Blutmanagement (Medical Society f Patient Blood Management), it operates from Schloßplatz 14, 2361 Laxenburg (a short time also operating from Seebenstein)


    “Mag. Dr. Axel Olaf Hofmann” sole proprietorship with the tasks: medical research and business consultancy operates also from Schloßplatz 14, 2361 Laxenburg

    Sources:

    https://www.herold.at/gelbe-seiten/laxenburg/vxC5K/medizinische-gesellschaft-f-blutmanagement-medical-society-f-patient-blood-management/

    http://www.firmenabc.at/mag-dr-axel-olaf-hofmann_NhQP

    Why is brother Prof. Dr. med.rec. ME Alex Olaf Hofmann’s sole proprietory at the same time the seat of the Medical Society f Patient Blood Management - MSBM for which he works as consulant? Why was an Austrian branch of PBM societies founded at all if already existed other societies enough? And by whom was it founded, could I find out more about the founding members?


    That particular society - another "bloodless" one - didn't show up until around 2006/7

    Already since 2005 MSBM was member of organisation committees, namely when Axel was part of the organisation committee of the Vienna conventions. Mag. Axel Hofmann Medical Society of Blood Management“, organisation committee of the 1. European Convention for Bloodsaving medicine (2nd Austrian Convention) at Vienna, from 5 - 7.Oct., 2005 http://gobloodless.net/Index_en.htm

    Probably the MSBM also was already active when the “1st Austrian benchmark study” (= bloodcomponents benchmarking”) from April 2004 to February 2005 was performed and completed. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17655591

    Also it was in December 2005 that Mag. Axel Hofmann established a new business consultancy registered as “Mag. Dr. Axel Olaf Hofmann” with the tasks: medical research and business consultancy. His office is located in the same house where the bloodless protagonist MSMB is seated. http://www.firmenabc.at/mag-dr-axel-olaf-hofmann_NhQP

    Is is also reported interestingly that it was 2005 when Prof. Isbister coined the term 'patient blood management. Further it is reported that MSBM is Prof. Isbister, Sydney and Prof. Hans Gombotz, Vienna child

    - Given what we now know, donor transfusions should be limited only to surgery patients who are experiencing major bleeding that is difficult to control quickly," said James Isbister, MD, Clinical Professor of Medicine at the University of Sydney, and a founding member of MSBM.

    Since latelty a new PBM society appeared and asks for sponsorship and donation, the IFPBM foundation!
    Certainly a donation here would be also good "seed money".

    That successful alliance has led to this:

    A new bloodless branch of the international PBM tree has sprouted 2015, the IFPBM was established, a foundation in Switzerland.


    The International Foundation for Patient Blood Management (IFPBM)


    Homepage: http://www.ifpbm.org/index.php/en/

    Twitter: https://twitter.com/IFPBMORG

    The International Foundation for Patient Blood Management (IFPBM) is a registered not-for-profit Swiss Foundation. Formed in 2016, the Foundation has a Board of Trustees who are supported by a group of Scientific Associates.
    Registered Adress: Dufourstr. 49, 4052 Basel, Switzerland

    You heard right, it is now an international branch parachuting the whole PBM tree! This branch has now even online presence and informs us how it grew so much higher. It forms now a parachute for the PBM protagonists.

    This April IFPBM appeared in the press

    http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/european-commission-publishes-new-guides-on-patient-blood-management-300435452.html

    In this text it is made clear that it is IFPBM that defines this new standard! „The International Foundation for Patient Blood Management (IFPBM) defines this new standard of care

    Professor James Isbister is also board member of this society and states: "The European Commission guides on Patient Blood Management will help greatly in improving the standard of patient-focused care across Europe. IFPBM is very pleased to see Patient Blood Management implemented in hospitals and medical centers of excellence across Europe and continue to expand into other counties, greatly improving patient care and substantially lowering health care costs." The same press text was published in German by Prof. Hans Gombotz.

    Again many senior and junior PBM evangelists some already known from other PBM societies are gathered under this parachute, which forms now the international crown of the PBM tree, stabilised by the trunk of founding members.

    COOPERATION BETWEEN ALL PBM - BRANCH SOCIETIES

    mention in History of Blood management

    in which the organisational change and the bloodsaving PBM societies are mentioned http://www.ifpbm.org/index.php/en/the-history-of-patient-blood-management-2

    which informes about the great importance of the cooperation between all the bloodsaving societies

    Along with the many bloodless programs being offered in hospitals worldwide, by the end of the 1990s organizations comitted to a new way of thinking began to emerge. Blood management would be the new standard of care and transfusion the alternative. Organizations such as the Society for the Advancement of Blood Management (SABM), the Network for the Advancement of Transfusion Alternatives (NATA), the Australasian Association for Blood Conservation (AABC) and the Medical Society for Blood Management (MSBM) sought to expand the information base by promoting and supporting research and collaboration into blood management.
    A turning point came in 2009 when SABM and MSBM organized the International Consensus Conference on Transfusion Outcomes (ICCTO). International experts from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, The Joint Commission, American Red Cross, and the Australian Red Cross addressed the potential for harm associated with unnecessary blood transfusion. The findings were published in 2011 in the article: Appropriateness of allogeneic red blood cell transfusion: the international consensus conference on transfusion outcomes.

    Others also comment about this cooperations

    En 2010, une collaboration entre la Society for the Advancement of Blood Management (SABM) et la Medical Society for Blood Management (MSBM) a évalué le coût de l’administration d’une unité de culot globulaire en utilisant des données collectées prospectivement dans des centres hospitaliers nord-américains et européens (Source: L’utilisation libérale des transfusions de plaquettes dans la réanimation initiale des patients polytraumatisés pages 7)

    --

    The Society for the Advancement of Blood Management (SABM) and the Medical Society for Blood Management (MSBM) are two organizations dedicated to improving patient outcomes through the appropriate use of blood and blood products,and by developing strategies to reduce or avoid blood transfusions.
