‘I am innocent.’ Imprisoned Kentucky Amish man seeks pardon from President Trump The Kentucky Amish farmer serving a federal sentence for mislabeling herbal health products now seeks a pardon from President Donald Trump. Samuel Girod has filed a petition with the U.S. Department of Justice pardon attorney. Girod, 58, is serving time at the satellite camp of the Federal Correctional Institution, Ashland, a minimum security prison. He was sentenced to six years but his scheduled release is early April 2022, according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons. The petition is listed online as seeking a commutation or reduction of sentence, but the application indicates that Girod seeks a pardon. Girod, a member of the Old Order Amish faith, was sentenced in June 2017 for obstructing a federal agency and selling herbal health products that were not labeled as required by federal law. “The court system is seriously broken in Lexington, Ky.,” Girod wrote in his application, a copy of which was mailed to the Lexington Herald-Leader. The website for the U.S. pardon attorney confirmed that it had received Girod’s application. Girod was convicted in March 2017 on 13 charges, including threatening a person in an attempt to stop him from providing information to a grand jury. The U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld his conviction earlier this year.
Special Guest – Ravi Kulasekere PhD, ND
Dr. Ravi Kulasekere is a graduate from the Trinity ND program, and a board certified holistic health practitioner. He is also a board certified medical physicist, a career that spanned almost 13 years in the field of cancer care. Here he was forced to look into vaccines in 2011 when in his hospital job required him to be vaccinated annually with the flu shot in order to keep his job. While refusing to be vaccinated, in November 2016 he voluntarily left his position as chief medical physicist at the county hospital in Cleveland, and opened his own holistic health practice Do No Pharm Naturopathy LLC in Lakewood, Ohio. Since 2011 he has also been diligently studying the untold science behind vaccines and has been a vocal supporter, both online and offline, of informed consent and the ability to choose to be vaccinated or not. He has provided both written and in-person expert testimony at many state sponsored bills in OH that are aimed at removing vaccine choice and is also actively involved in the health freedom advocacy group, Ohio Advocates for Medical Freedom and Health Freedom Ohio In his spare time, he loves to travel, enjoys gardening, ethnic cooking, astronomy, being active in the vegan community in Cleveland and playing with a toddler and her train set.
BMJ Letter to the Editor Questions Lack of Vaccine Safety Studies In a recent letter to the editor published in the medical journal The BMJ titled “We DO need a broad look at vaccination policies and programs,” Allan Cunningham, MD wrote that he agreed with a letter to the journal from Bernadette Pajer of Informed Choice Washington regarding the need to thoughtfully review the effect of vaccination policies on the American public. Dr. Cunningham said, “Bernadette Pajer is absolutely right to criticize the medical community for failing to step back and examine the overall impact of immunization programs on public health.” Cunningham noted that while he believed vaccines have contributed to the decline in the incidence of infectious diseases such as measles and polio, he suggested that it was important to include an evaluation of the “possible longer term beneficial or adverse non-specific effects” of the current recommended vaccine schedules. He said, “As immunization schedules have expanded, our ignorance of overall risks and benefits have also expanded.” Cunningham appears to be concerned that the science behind vaccines and their effects may not be as settled as many public health officials and physicians believe. He cited the alleged link between vaccines and autism. “I doubt that vaccinations are a major cause of our increase in autism, but without properly controlled trials we can neither prove nor exclude causation, contrary to what we hear endlessly from vaccine authorities,” said Cunningham, who cited a landmark study by public health epidemiologist Dr. Andrew Mawson comparing the health outcomes of vaccinated versus unvaccinated children.
Woman accuses University of Colorado Hospital of removing 2 healthy kidneys A 73-year-old Colorado grandmother is considering legal action after doctors at the University of Colorado Hospital removed both of her healthy kidneys in May, KDVR reported. Linda Woolley, of Englewood, said doctors told her surgery was necessary because she likely had kidney cancer, the television station reported. However, KDVR obtained a copy of a March 2018 biopsy that showed “no evidence of malignancy” and results “consistent with a benign process.” “I’m not real happy,” Woolley told the television station. Because both kidneys were removed, Woolley requires four hours of dialysis three times a week, KDVRreported. “My life was totally changed,” Woolley told the television station. “Dialysis is no picnic. No matter how used to it you get, it robs you of your life.”
Hour 2 – Whoa…Wait…They Said WHAT?
Fox News Memphis Admits Flu Shot Causes Injuries It’s flu shot season. The mainstream media is now fully engaged in a furious flu shot marketing campaign. However, while many are taking a pass on the shot that’s consistently failed to live up to the hype, others are learning of a dark consequence to taking the shot. The flu shot injuries. Yep, and now the mainstream media is begrudgingly reporting on the matter. The flu shot can result in a painful arm condition called shoulder bursitis. And it hurts. Just ask Memphis resident Leslie Moon, who Memphis’s Fox affiliate interviewed after she suffered the painful flu shot injury. “So thankful it’s my left arm, because I’m right-handed and all of my primary art is done with my right hand,” she told FOX13’s sister station in Seattle, KIRO-TV. “I just pulled down my shirt, a little bit off the shoulder…and I remember he was standing so it was very rushed,” Moon explained. Moon tried chiropractors, massage therapy, and trips to her doctor. But it all failed. Moon is now left holding the bag with a painful arm condition. And KIRO-TV didn’t pull any punches in its reporting on the matter, citing “vaccine injury” as the issue. In this day and age, such a phrase is often considered blasphemy.
Surgery vs Antibiotics – Round 2
Study: Surgery best treatment for appendicitis, not antibiotics A person suffering from an appendicitis should receive surgery and not try to treat the condition with antibiotics, a study said. The Stanford University School of Medicine study, published Wednesday in the Jama Network, said that treating an inflamed appendix with antibiotics is more costly than just having surgery, contradicting previous recent reports that suggest its better to treat appendicitis with antibiotics. “People treated with antibiotics alone have a higher chance of coming back needing further treatment for appendicitis-related problems, such as abdominal abscesses,” Lindsay Sceats, a surgical resident and lead author of the study, said in a press release. “They also have a higher risk of having a reoccurrence, and the cost is no lower.” Researchers analyzed private insurance claims from patients treated for appendicitis between 2008 and 2014. More than 95 percent of the the patients opted for surgery to treat the condition while the remaining patients used drug therapy.

I wish you would do a Truth About Depression show with real solutions that work instead of making people feel bad about the antidepressants they take to deal with life.
The best herbal remedies for depression For a condition that affects over 16 million people in the U.S. every year, there’s still a lot that we don’t know about depression. In particular, some people equate extreme sadness to depression. This is not only an oversimplification, it’s also misleading as depression is much more nuanced and complex than simple unhappiness. However, it’s the belief that taking antidepressants could reduce depressive symptoms which causes concern. Studies have shown that using these drugs can lead to a range of physical, emotional, and psychological side effects. One of the more serious side effects of taking antidepressants is increased thoughts of suicide. However, it’s not just high-risk people that are affected by it: Even those without mood disorders harbor suicidal thoughts after taking antidepressants. In the U.K., a group of people who have taken such drugs appeared before Parliament to talk about the adverse effects, including suicidal thoughts, seizures, and other health issues.
Chili peppers found to be a powerful natural cure for depression Here’s a good reason to add some spice into your life: Chili peppers were found to be effective in managing symptoms of depression. In a study published in the European Journal of Medicinal Plants, chili pepper extracts were found to exhibit anti-depressive effects. Researchers from Kaduna State University in Nigeria aimed to determine whether methanol fruit extract of chili pepper possesses antidepressant potential. For the study, they conducted three tests in mice: Force Swim Test (FST), Tail Suspension Test (TST), and Open Field Test (OFT). In the FST and TST, the researchers randomly divided 30 mice into five groups: one group received saline, another group received antidepressant drug imipramine, and the three remaining groups were treated with 500 milligrams per kilogram (mg/kg), 1000 mg/kg, and 2000 mg/kg of methanol extract of fruits of chili pepper, respectively.

‘Nothing on this page is real’: How lies become truth in online America The only light in the house came from the glow of three computer monitors, and Christopher Blair, 46, sat down at a keyboard and started to type. His wife had left for work and his children were on their way to school, but waiting online was his other community, an unreality where nothing was exactly as it seemed. He logged onto his website and began to invent his first news story of the day. “BREAKING,” he wrote, pecking out each letter with his index fingers as he considered the possibilities. Maybe he would announce that Hillary Clinton had died during a secret overseas mission to smuggle more refugees into America. Maybe he would award President Trump the Nobel Peace Prize for his courage in denying climate change. A new message popped onto Blair’s screen from a friend who helped with his website. “What viral insanity should we spread this morning?” the friend asked. “The more extreme we become, the more people believe it,” Blair replied.
