Wednesday on The Robert Scott Bell Show:
Would a ‘Climate Emergency’ Open the Same Door to Authoritarian Governance as the ‘COVID Emergency?’ In February 2022, 1,140 organizations sent President Biden a letter urging him to declare a “climate emergency.” A group of U.S. Senators did the same, in October 2022, and a House bill, introduced in 2021, also called on the president to “declare a national climate emergency under the National Emergencies Act.” Biden has considered declaring such an emergency, but so far he has declined, to the disappointment of many progressives. The United Nations (U.N.) has urged all countries to declare a climate emergency. The state of Hawaii and 170 local U.S. jurisdictions have declared some version of one. So have 38 countries, including European Union members and the U.K., and local jurisdictions around the world, together encompassing about 13% of the world’s population. Hillary Clinton was reportedly prepared to declare a “climate emergency” if she had won the 2016 election. A “climate emergency” is in the zeitgeist. Those words were surely uttered by the billionaires, technocrats and corporate CEOs attending the recent World Economic Forum (WEF) meeting in Davos. But what does it actually mean for the president of the U.S. to officially declare a “climate emergency”? Most people don’t realize that under U.S. law, a national emergency declaration triggers a set of emergency powers that allows a president to act without the need for further legislation.
Special Guest Gail Macrae
I am Gail Macrae, RN, BSN, finished my CNM/WHNP but couldn’t complete my residency hours due to my refusal to take the jab. I worked as a ICU/Tele/Medsurg/L&D nurse for ten years and was fired Oct 1, 2021 for refusing the EUA bioweapon, despite having documented natural immunity. After this happened, my family sold our property, bought an RV and are now traveling and working full time to empower people to engage ethically and stand in truth while collecting expert witnesses to come together. To that end, I met Dr Christian Northrop and Lynette Madsen, who had started building the affidavit process and it was a natural fit. Our goal is to overwhelm the courts with expert witness testimony which will produce indisputable evidence that covid was a planned scam on the world. Our website is www.StandFirmNow.org
Experimental Vaccine Would Be the First to Fight Off Fungi The Last of Us, eat your heart out. Scientists at the University of Georgia say they’ve developed a vaccine that should be able to protect against a variety of dangerous fungi. In animal studies, the vaccine prevented severe infections and deaths from three types of fungi that often cause opportunistic illness in people. The team now plans to start early human trials. Compared to viruses and bacteria, fungi are a less common source of disease. Among other reasons, our bodies are too hot for most fungi to survive comfortably in, and our immune system generally does a good job of keeping potential infections from running rampant. But many experts fear that climate change will lead to increased fungal disease. Even today, fungal infections do cause severe illness, especially in people who are immunocompromised or in poorer health. As more people live with conditions that at least temporarily weaken their immune system, such as those undergoing cancer treatment, fungal infections are expected to rise. These infections are harder to treat and prevent than other types, since we have very few safe antifungal drugs and no approved vaccines against them.

Hour 2 – Outside The Box With Ty Bollinger!
It’s time to go Outside The Box again with Ty Bollinger! What will we be talking about today?
Congress is set to expose what may be the largest censorship system in U.S. history Below is my column in the Hill on the first hearings this week to be held by the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government. It could be one of the most consequential investigations for free speech in decades if it pulls back the curtain on government censorship programs. After the historic release of the Twitter Files by Elon Musk, questions remain on any similar coordination with other social media companies with federal agencies like the FBI to target views considered “disinformation” or “misinformation.” (Article by Jonathan Turley republished from JonathanTurley.org) Here is the column: This coming week a new House select subcommittee will hold its first hearing on the FBI and the possible “weaponization” of government agencies. A variety of such controversies have contributed to plunging public trust in government and the FBI in particular.The role of the FBI in prior scandals will remain a point of heated debate in Congress. However, members of both parties should be able to agree on the need to investigate one of the most serious allegations: Censorship by surrogate.
Here’s Why Big Pharma Spends More On Ads Pushing Lower Benefit Drugs, Study Suggests Big pharma spends more money on advertising for drugs that have lower health benefits for patients, according to a study published in JAMA on Tuesday, shedding new light on the almost uniquely American practice amid fierce debate over whether direct-to-consumer prescription drug ads should be banned. The proportion of advertising spending allocated to direct-to-consumer ads was an average of 14.3 percentage points higher for drugs with a low added benefit compared to those with a high added benefit, according to the peer-reviewed analysis of the 150 best-selling branded prescription drugs in 2020. Nearly two-thirds of the country’s top-selling prescription drugs—92 of the 135 drugs data was available for—were rated as offering patients low added benefit by health agencies in France and Canada, the researchers found, relying on the foreign agencies as no U.S. agency compares prescription drugs for effectiveness. Promotional spending for prescription drugs varied wildly, the researchers said, with a median spend of $20.9 million per drug and a median of 13.5% of the promotional budget allocated to direct-to-consumer ads.
Cancer is striking more people in their 30s and 40s. Here’s what you need to know Cancer deaths are on the decline in the United States, and the outlook for winning the war against this deadly disease is both good and bad. In the United States, deaths from cancer have dropped 33% since 1991, with an estimated 3.8 million lives saved, mostly due to advances in early detection and treatment. Still, 10 million people worldwide lost their lives to cancer in 2020. During the last three years, cancer has remained a leading cause of death in the world — more than Covid-19, said Dr. Arif Kamal, chief patient officer for the American Cancer Society. Symptoms of cancer can mimic those of many other illnesses, so it can be difficult to tell them apart, experts say. Signs include unexplained weight loss or gain, swelling or lumps in the groin, neck, stomach or underarms and fever and night sweats, according to the National Cancer Institute. Bladder, bowel, skin and neurological issues may be signs of cancer, such as changes in hearing and vision, seizures, headaches and bleeding or bruising for no reason, the institute said. But most cancers do not cause pain at first, so you can’t rely on that as a sign.
Pharma’s Gatekeeper: How the PREP Act Protects Everyone Except Those Injured by Vaccines Parents, plaintiffs, activists and even some attorneys were shocked to learn late last year that school officials would get away scot-free after a Vermont Superior Court judge ruled that a Vermont school couldn’t be held liable for vaccinating a 6-year-old student against the parent’s wishes. In dismissing a lawsuit filed by the child’s parents against the Windham Southeast School District, the State of Vermont and others, Judge Michael Kainen cited the Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness (PREP) Act. The PREP Act, which authorizes the secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to declare that “a disease or other health condition or other threat to health constitutes a public health emergency,” grants a “covered person” immunity from legal liability for all claims for loss relating to the administration or use of covered “countermeasures,” such as drugs, biological products, medical devices and vaccines. “A PREP Act declaration is specifically for the purpose of providing immunity from liability, and is different from, and not dependent on, other emergency declarations.” PREP provides liability protection to what is termed a “covered person”; the U.S. government; a manufacturer, a distributor, a program planner; and one who administers, or dispenses such countermeasures. Additionally, a manufacturer or distributor can’t be the defendant unless the HHS secretary or the U.S. attorney general has initiated an enforcement action.
Global warming cult says surgery patients should receive less anesthesia to save the planet Giving patients who are undergoing invasive surgery anesthesia to quell their pain is bad for the planet, according to the cult of climate change. New research presented by Dr. Mohamed Fayed at the recent annual conference of the American Society of Anesthesiologists claims that delivering one hour of surgical anesthesia to a patient is the equivalent of driving a car 470 miles in terms of “greenhouse gas” emissions. In order to save the planet from global warming, Fayed stated, “lowering the flow of anesthetic gas” to patients is critical. Sure, they will be in a lot more pain, but at least Fayed will no longer have to worry about the polar ice caps melting and possibly flooding his yard. “Global warming is affecting our daily life more and more, and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions has become crucial,” Fayed is quoted as saying. (Related: In 2019, history professor Juan Cole expressed worry about hurricanes causing Florida to sink because of Gov. Ron DeSantis’ “inaction” on climate change.) “No matter how small each effect is, it will add up. As anesthesiologists, we can contribute significantly to this cause by making little changes in our daily practice – such as lowering the flow of anesthetic gas – without affecting patient care.”
