Sacred Fire of Liberty!
It’s that time of the week where we get to explore the political healing that this country needs so desperately! Jonathan Emord is back to help us dissect the latest political news that’s fit to print:
Republicans, rooting for Sanders, see Biden wins as setback Republican lawmakers are surprised and disappointed by the results of Super Tuesday, which firmly re-established former Vice President Joe Biden as the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination and dealt Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) a major setback. Republican senators conceded Wednesday they would rather face Sanders, a self-described democratic socialist, as the opposing nominee, instead of Biden, whom they consider more mainstream and tougher to draw a contrast with. In the battle for the Senate, Republicans would like to tie Democratic candidates to Sanders and socialism, and generally see Biden as a stronger candidate. Similarly, Democrats were uneasy about Sanders as their standard-bearer, and Biden has made this a point of attack on the campaign trail, arguing he would help Democrats take back the Senate.
FDA Takes Rare Step to Ban Electrical Stimulation Devices for Self-Injurious or Aggressive Behavior After careful consideration, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration today published a final rule to ban electrical stimulation devices (ESDs) used for self-injurious or aggressive behavior because they present an unreasonable and substantial risk of illness or injury that cannot be corrected or eliminated through new or updated device labeling. “Since ESDs were first marketed more than 20 years ago, we have gained a better understanding of the danger these devices present to public health,” said William Maisel, M.D., M.P.H., director of the Office of Product Evaluation and Quality in the FDA’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health. “Through advancements in medical science, there are now more treatment options available to reduce or stop self-injurious or aggressive behavior, thus avoiding the substantial risk ESDs present.” ESDs administer electrical shocks through electrodes attached to the skin of individuals to immediately interrupt self-injurious or aggressive behavior or attempt to condition the individuals to stop engaging in such behavior. Evidence indicates a number of significant psychological and physical risks are associated with the use of these devices, including worsening of underlying symptoms, depression, anxiety, posttraumatic stress disorder, pain, burns and tissue damage.
House passes bipartisan $8.3B bill to battle coronavirus An $8.3 billion measure to help tackle the coronavirus outbreak should soon make its way to President Trump after a Senate vote planned for Thursday. The money would pay for a multifaceted attack on a virus that is spreading more widely and threatening major disruptions in the U.S. and across the globe. The plan, passed by the House by a 415-2 vote Wednesday, would more than triple the $2.5 billion amount outlined by the White House 10 days ago. The Trump proposal was immediately discarded by members of Congress from both parties. Instead, they negotiated the increased figure in a burst of bipartisan cooperation that’s increasingly rare in Washington. “The government’s greatest responsibility is to keep Americans safe,” said said Democratic Rep. Nita Lowey of New York, who leads the House Appropriations Committee. She said the infusion of money was intended to help “protect the American people from this deadly and expanding outbreak.”
Trump says he’ll withhold federal aid from sanctuary cities after favorable court ruling President Trump said Thursday that his administration will begin withholding millions of dollars from sanctuary cities, citing a federal appeals court ruling last week that supported his policy. “As per recent Federal Court ruling, the Federal Government will be withholding funds from Sanctuary Cities. They should change their status and go non-Sanctuary. Do not protect criminals!” Mr. Trump tweeted. A three-judge panel of the Second Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan ruled unanimously last week that the federal government has the discretion to impose conditions when distributing grant money. The judges noted that the Supreme Court has consistently upheld the federal government’s authority over states on immigration policy. Three other federal appeals courts have ruled against the administration on the issue. Such a split among appellate courts increases the likelihood of the Supreme Court taking up the matter.
Chief Justice Roberts denounces Sen. Chuck Schumer for attacks on 2 justices Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. issued a rare statement Wednesday to rebuke Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer for what Roberts called “threatening” and “dangerous” statements directed at the two justices named by President Donald Trump. The president soon weighed in as well, with a tweet. The chief justice was responding to a widely circulated video of Schumer, a New York Democrat, speaking at a rally outside the court as the justices, including Neil M. Gorsuch and Brett M. Kavanaugh, were hearing arguments in a major abortion case. Turning as if to address the court and the justices, Schumer said: “I want to tell you, Gorsuch, I want to tell you, Kavanaugh. You have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.” Gorsuch and Kavanaugh were confirmed by the Senate in Trump’s first two years, despite opposition from Schumer and his fellow Democrats.
Warren ends 2020 presidential bid, not endorsing anyone yet Elizabeth Warren, who electrified progressives with her “plan for everything” and strong message of economic populism, dropped out of the Democratic presidential race on Thursday, days after the onetime front-runner failed to win a single Super Tuesday state, not even her own. For much of the past year, her campaign had all the markers of success, robust poll numbers, impressive fundraising and a sprawling political infrastructure that featured staffers on the ground across the country. But once voting began in February, she never found a reliable base of supporters as Democrats coalesced around Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, her progressive rival, and former Vice President Joe Biden, who established himself as the leading centrist in the race. “I refuse to let disappointment blind me — or you — to what we’ve accomplished,” Warren told her campaign staff on a call Thursday. “We didn’t reach our goal, but what we have done together — what you have done — has made a lasting difference. It’s not the scale of the difference we wanted to make, but it matters.”
10 Facts Every Parent Needs to Know About Vaccinations The epidemic of poor health in American children started after 1986, coterminous with the passage of the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act which resulted in an explosion of the vaccine schedule. For American kids born in 1986, only 12.8% had chronic diseases. That number has grown to 54% among the vaccine generation (those born after 1986) in lockstep with the expanding vaccine schedule.
1. Children have never been sicker than today.
54% of American children have serious chronic health conditions according to a 2011 survey funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). Conditions include neurodevelopmental disorders, asthma, allergies, mental health/behavioral disorders and obesity.
including Vaccine Adverse Event Reports and manufacturers’ product inserts. The world’s most aggressive vaccine schedule has not given our country the world’s healthiest children. We now rank 35th in overall health outcomes —just behind Costa Rica, making the U.S., by most measures, including infant mortality, the sickest in the developed world.
3. Vaccine manufacturers and healthcare providers cannot be held liable for vaccine injuries.
In 1986, Congress passed the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act freeing companies from liability for injuries resulting from childhood vaccines—“no matter how toxic the ingredients, how negligent the manufacturer or how grievous the harm.” The act created the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) that is governed by HHS. Over $4.2 billion has been paid by consumers for vaccine injuries. The U.S. vaccine schedule has more than tripled since the 1986 Act.
Air pollution ‘pandemic’ shortens lives by 3 years: study A ‘pandemic’ of air pollution shortens lives worldwide by nearly three years on average, and causes 8.8 million premature deaths annually, scientists said Tuesday. Eliminating the toxic cocktail of molecules and lung-clogging particles cast off by burning oil, gas and coal would restore a full year of life expectancy, they reported in the journal Cardiovascular Research. “Air pollution is a larger public health risk than tobacco smoking,” lead author Jos Lelieveld of the Max Planck Institute in Mainz, Germany told AFP. “Much of it can be avoided by replacing fossil fuels with clean renewable energy.” Compared to other causes of premature death, air pollution kills 19 times more people each year than malaria, nine times more than HIV/AIDS, and three times more than alcohol, the study found. Coronary heart disease and stroke account for almost half of those deaths, with lung diseases and other non-communicable diseases such as diabetes and high blood pressure accounting for most of the rest. Only six percent of mortality stemming from polluted air is due to lung cancer.
Question of The Day!
Hello Robert and Super Don! On the topic of the coronavirus, we know here in the U.S, no more people are dying from COVID-19 than they do from the flu. We know it hits hardest among those that are already immune compromised individuals. We know its either lab created or wild. We know its stupid to put a bunch of immune compromised people quarantined together. We know air quality in China is terrible, we know more men are dying and becoming ill than woman, etc…we have heard many theories as to how this began, but in your opinion, why the abundance of sudden deaths in China with this virus compared to the flu or any other viral infections that float around there? What is making this so deadly in China?.. Thanks you guys, for all you do! Such an informative show!
Comment of The Day!
I just want to thank you for your relentless and sane commentary on the corona insanity. Keep it up! We need you!
RSB Coronavirus prevention and recovery – Shhhh! Don’t tell anyone! Anyone who listens to The RSB Show for any length of time knows that I question official stories, especially when the news media goes apoplectic with new infectious disease pronouncements that portend the second coming of the 1918 Spanish influenza. Do I dispute that there are many people who are sick in China and some have died? Of course not. But context is necessary to determine whether to panic as the pharmaceutically conflicted mainstream media would have us do with their constant focus on victimhood and imminent death from another scary germ. Nowhere in their fear porn onslaught is there an acknowledgement that most (by far) who have contact and may contract Covid-19 survive. They LIVE! Does that not feel more uplifting and accurate? Please absorb the profound perspectives in Serfs of Globalism: In the Age of Corona, What Dies First Is the Inalienable Right to Not Worry by my good friend Celia Farber. Celia even mentions the problems with confirmatory tests (RT-PCR) that cannot confirm the presence of an actively replicating coronavirus. For even more perspectives questioning the official story on Covid-19, listen to any of my recent radio broadcasts with Jon Rappoport from NoMoreFakeNews. So now what do we do?
Medication fog can mimic or worsen dementia in the elderly Claire Dinneen’s daughters thought that worsening dementia was causing her growing confusion, but her doctor suspected something else. Dr. Pei Chen asked them to round up medicines in the 89-year-old woman’s home and they returned with a huge haul. There were 28 drugs ordered by various doctors for various ailments, plus over-the-counter medicines. Chen spent a year sorting out which ones were truly needed and trimmed a dozen. To her daughters’ surprise, Dinneen got better, able to remember more things and to offer advice on what to wear and how to raise their kids. Her symptoms were from “medication fog,” not her dementia getting worse, Chen told one daughter. “I was just stunned,” Debbie Dinneen said. “No one had taken a look at the big picture” to see if medicines might be addling her mom, who lives near Berkeley, California.
