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:
Hillary Clinton says ‘no’ to being Bloomberg’s possible running mate Hillary Clinton on Tuesday said she is not considering being Mike Bloomberg’s running mate after a recent report by Matt Drudge said the former New York City mayor was considering her as his potential vice president. At a Clinton Global Initiative event in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Mrs. Clinton was asked whether she would entertain being Mr. Bloomberg’s vice president should he win the Democratic Party’s nomination. “Oh, no!” the twice-failed presidential candidate responded, as quoted by noted freelance journalist Yashar Ali. “I’m just waiting and watching as this plays out. I will support whoever the nominee is because I think, for all the reasons you can imagine, and here in Puerto Rico there are many, we need to have a new president for our country.”
Democrats aghast at outing as communists In Case You Missed It: The latest Democratic debate involved a bit of back-and-forth between Mike Bloomberg and Bernie Sanders about the perils of politicking in America on a communist platform — and all the Democrats go, what’s wrong with that? Actually, they pretended offense at being called communists. But really, what’s the difference? This is where the Democratic Party has gone: defending communism as a viable American government. “I can’t think of a way to make it easier for Donald Trump to get reelected than listening to this conversation,” Bloomberg said, in response to Sanders’ economic plan — which is really a total government take-over of the economy — which is really the goals of all the Democrats on the presidential campaign trail, just at a slower pace than Sanders would like, and just in a more secretive manner than Sanders would push.
Obama is jealous of Trump’s economy Barack Obama, ex-prez, took to Twitter to try and claim that today’s great economy is due to his 11-year-old policy — suggesting, laughably, his White House is owed a big ol’ thank you from President Donald Trump, from the world of business and from Joe Q. Taxpayer and Jane Q. Consumer. Sorry, Mr. Obama, but to coin one of your own phrases: You didn’t build that. You didn’t build the economy America is now cheering. If memory serves, and it does, you built the economy that earned you the monicker, “Food Stamp President.” Obama tweeted: “Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.” That’s such an odd spin of historical truths — not that Obama signed the act, but rather that he’s trying to suggest a) today’s Trump economy is due to an 11-year-old policy and b) that his White House administration contributed anything positive at all to the economy. Under Obama, joblessness soared into double digits; under Obama, America was told to get used to the dismal national growth — that it was the new normal. Under Obama, regulatory costs soared, the free market shuddered, the business world lost complete confidence and left the United States, consumers stopped buying.
Dr. Google’s Prescription: Censorship This search engine monopolist is preventing you from learning about natural health, and instead promoting prescription drugs. Action Alert! Last year, we told you about the aggressive censorship campaign that Google and other Internet gatekeepers have embarked upon. This censorship is preventing Americans from learning about the benefits of natural health from some of the most reliable and trustworthy voices, such as Dr. Joseph Mercola. In a stunning article, Dr. Mercola shows objective evidence of the shameful censorship that his site has been subjected to by Google. Lawmakers are starting to take notice of this trend, but it remains unclear how these efforts will shake out. The evidence at this point is incontrovertible. Dr. Mercola explains that much of his success as a physician was due to his ability to treat arthritis, and a popular article describing his arthritis protocol was consistently high on the list of search items for “arthritis.” Do that search today, however, and you won’t find that article. The top result, even when you search “Mercola arthritis,” is a Croatian website that copied, without permission, Dr. Mercola’s arthritis article in its entirety. Dr. Mercola’s site ranks 9,002 in global internet engagement; the Croatian site ranks 9,401,920.
Victory: Ag-Gag Law Ruled Unconstitutional …this time it’s a thirty-year-old law in Kansas. State-based action alerts! A federal court in Kansas has ruled that the state’s “ag-gag” law is unconstitutional. The tide is indeed turning against these terrible laws, but there are still states where this legislation needs to be removed. Ag-gag laws refer to state legislation that prohibits documenting, with either photographs or video, the conditions on concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs). The intent of these laws is to prohibit animal welfare groups from documenting cases of animal abuse at these operations. Legislators responsible for this legislation are rightly concerned that evidence of the conditions on CAFOs will outrage Americans. Fortunately, these laws are being struck down for violating the First Amendment. Kansas is the fourth state where an ag-gag law has been struck down (similar laws were previously disallowed in Idaho, Utah, and Iowa). Despite these wins there are still ag-gag laws on the books in Alabama, North Carolina, Montana, North Dakota, and Arkansas.
Special Guest – KC Craichy!
KC is Founder and CEO of LivingFuel, Inc., a leading distributor of superfood nutrition, and author of the best-selling book SuperHealth – 7 Golden Keys to Unlock Lifelong Vitality and his most recent book The Super Health Diet: The Last Diet You Will Ever Need!. Through his work, products and teaching, KC is on a mission to change lives.
The inspiration for success began with past health challenges of KC’s wife, Monica, former Miss Florida and Miss Florida USA, who looked like the model of health on the outside but on the inside it was a different story. KC also had early struggles of being overweight and out of shape. Monica’s experiences of anxiety, fear, panic and depression more than 14 years ago and the futility of conventional medical approaches (drugs, psychotherapy) led KC to vow to find an answer. Through years of research and trial and error, Monica has gained back complete health and her vibrancy. Monica has not taken any medication since deciding to find the answer and today she and KC have five wonderful children.
KC wrestled with a challenge of his own: he was overweight. In high school, he discovered the power of proper nutrition which led to a life of research and understanding. He began to unlock the keys to maximum performance and metabolism and since has spent his adult life as a health-conscious athlete, forging a vision to develop a new approach to healthy living. It’s a simple, no-nonsense strategy that aims to help people of any age look, feel and live better.
Anti-vaccine moms pull all-nighter in protesting vaccination bill The debate over childhood vaccinations wrapped up shortly after 8 a.m. Thursday after raging more than 20 hours and through the night, sustained by upset moms from around the state who recoil at the prospect of government telling them how to take care of their children. The public health committee next meets on Friday in Room 2D at the Legislative Office Building, said its chairwoman, state Sen. Mary Daugherty Abrams. The committee is not expected to vote at that time, however. Drafted around the time measles was starting to make a comeback in a Jewish community in New York state, the bill would prohibit parents from citing religious or philosophical beliefs in refusing to vaccinate their children. It drew the ire of thousands at the state Capitol Wednesday, some of whom pulled their children out of school to join them. One child was in the hearing room with her mother during testimony early Thursday. It wasn’t clear if the child was there all night; some of those at the hearing said they had gone home before rejoining fellow speakers.
Bill requiring last immunization prior to death on death certificate of Iowa infants moves through committee on party-line vote Senate File 2172 advanced through committee on Tuesday by an 8-5, party-line vote. Every Democrat voted against the bill, which would require information of the last immunization be included on any death certificate of a 0-3-year old child in Iowa. There are about 40 deaths per year in Iowa that would trigger such information. Sen. Jim Carlin (R-Sioux City) managed the bill through the committee. “It doesn’t seem unreasonable to me that we should try to get good information, good data on this topic,” Carlin said. Ultimately, Carlin said, the bill will result in data that cannot be argued.
Weighing Down Childhood: Are Vaccines and Glyphosate Contributing to Childhood Obesity? Over the past several decades, the experience of childhood has changed fundamentally for many American children. Impairing their ability to climb trees and run races, over a third are encumbered—at even the youngest ages—with runaway weight and associated sequelae like high blood pressure. As of 2015-16, about 13.7 million U.S. children and adolescents—roughly one in five (18.5%)—were obese, and another 17% were overweight. Even worse, a third of those classified as obese fell into the category of “extreme obesity.” In the adolescent age group (12- to 19-year-olds), obesity prevalence—at 21%—has quadrupled since the 1980s, generating $14 billion in annual direct health expenses. Researchers are even more concerned, however, by the worsening picture in 2- to 5-year-olds. Studies show that early-onset weight gain has long-term risks; when children start kindergarten overweight, they are four times more likely to become obese by eighth grade as normal-weight kindergartners. In less than a decade (from 2007-08 to 2015-16), the prevalence of obesity and severe obesity in the 2- to 5-year age group rose from 10% to 14%. In the most recent two-year cycle, this sharp increase in preschool-age children—particularly boys, African Americans and Hispanics—prompted researchers to fret about the obesity epidemic having become “endemic.” At a societal level, experts warn that “The obesity epidemic threatens to shorten life expectancy . . . and bankrupt the health care system.”

Missouri Farmer Awarded $265M for GMO Pesticide Drift in Suit Against BASF and Bayer A jury on Saturday awarded $265 million in punitive damages against Bayer and BASF to a southeastern Missouri peach farmer who argued that weedkiller dicamba that had drifted onto his orchards from other farms had severely damaged his trees. The punitive damages awarded to farmer Bill Bader came a day after the jury awarded him $15 million in actual damages, agreeing with his argument that dicamba had drifted over from other farms and severely damaged Bader Farms, which is one of the largest peach farms in Missouri. Bader’s attorneys argued that his trees likely wouldn’t survive the dicamba exposure. The owners of Bader Farms alleged the companies conspired to create an “ecological disaster” that would induce farmers to buy dicamba-tolerant seeds. Attorneys for Bayer said they will appeal. The awards in Bader’s lawsuit could bode well for other similar lawsuits filed against Bayer and BASF, which invented the pesticide. The lawsuits blame dicamba for of acres of crops across the country. Farmers have been using dicamba for more than 50 years, but after Monsanto — which was bought by Bayer in 2018 — released genetically modified dicamba-tolerant cotton and soybeans, the weedkiller’s use became more widespread, leading to more complaints from neighboring farms whose non-dicamba-resistant crops were getting killed off by dicamba drift.
Researchers find a western-style diet can impair brain function Consuming a western diet for as little as one week can subtly impair brain function and encourage slim and otherwise healthy young people to overeat, scientists claim. Researchers found that after seven days on a high fat, high added sugar diet, volunteers in their 20s scored worse on memory tests and found junk food more desirable immediately after they had finished a meal. The finding suggests that a western diet makes it harder for people to regulate their appetite, and points to disruption in a brain region called the hippocampus as the possible cause. “After a week on a western-style diet, palatable food such as snacks and chocolate becomes more desirable when you are full,” said Richard Stevenson, a professor of psychology at Macquarie University in Sydney. “This will make it harder to resist, leading you to eat more, which in turn generates more damage to the hippocampus and a vicious cycle of overeating.”
