Hour 1 – 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:
Cuomo brushes off criticism of New York abortion law: ‘I’m not here to legislate religion’ Amid Catholic leaders’ calls for excommunication, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has dug in his heels and defended a controversial state law that loosens the rules on abortion. The law allows abortions to be performed by non-doctors up until the point of birth for many reasons. Cuomo, who touts his Catholic faith and who once was an altar boy, brushed off criticism of the law on Tuesday. “The Catholic Church doesn’t believe in a woman’s right to choose. Yes, I understand their religious view,” he said. “But I’m not here to legislate religion.” Cuomo pointed out that his father, Mario Cuomo, the late former three-term governor, received similar criticism for his support of abortion in New York. “Bishops attacking Governor Cuomo,” he said with laughter. “Let’s pull that headline up from about 30 years ago.”
Skepticism of US Intelligence Community Is a Good Thing President Donald Trump’s occasional questioning of the U.S. intelligence community isn’t dangerous; it’s exactly the sort of responsible leadership that President Ronald Reagan practiced. Many of the president’s critics claim he doesn’t have a good relationship or the support of U.S. intelligence agencies because he has “demonstrated that he does not trust them.” This narrative is blatantly false. There isn’t one shred of evidence that the president doesn’t trust the CIA or other intelligence agencies. And as a former military intelligence officer, I can state unequivocally that the overwhelming majority of intelligence analysts believe the president trusts and supports them. They understand that his responsibility as president is to ask as many questions as necessary to make sure the intelligence and information he receives is credible, accurate, and actionable.
Nancy Pelosi is adamant: No money for border wall in spending legislation House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday said there won’t be any money for a U.S.-Mexico border wall in whatever deal negotiators strike on border security in the coming weeks. “There’s not going to be any wall money in the legislation,” Mrs. Pelosi told reporters at her weekly press conference. Her comments came a day after House Democrats unveiled a list of border security priorities that include more funding for U.S. ports of entry and technology, and fewer beds at immigration detention facilities. Mrs. Pelosi said she wants to let negotiators work their will and that discussions about technology and ports of entry could be “part of the negotiation.” She said there’s already more than 600 miles of barriers along the border, including 300 miles of “Normandy” fencing, which is intended to block vehicles.
Howard Schultz Shoots Down Liz Warren Attack With Passionate Defense of the American Dream On Wednesday, former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz shot down an attack from Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), who said that because he is a billionaire, he is out of touch with America. He responded with a passionate defense of the American dream.”Senator Elizabeth Warren said some pretty sharp words about me. She referred to me as a billionaire out of touch with the American people,” Schultz said in a short video. He told his rags-to-riches story succinctly and in a patriotic way. “I grew up in Brooklyn, New York, in Canarsie, in federally subsidized housing, the projects. When I was 7 years old my father, who was a laborer, came home and had a serious accident. He was dismissed from his job, we lost our health insurance. I witnessed the fracturing of the American dream,” the former Starbucks CEO began. Schultz witnessed failure early, but he did not let that define him.
DiFi, Kamala fume as Trump renominates conservative judges to overhaul liberal 9th Circuit California Democratic Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris lashed out at the White House after President Trump, under pressure from conservative activists, re-nominated two conservative California judges to the 9th Circuit federal appeals court over their opposition. “We are deeply disappointed that the White House has chosen to re-nominate Daniel Collins and Kenneth Lee to the 9th Circuit,” Feinstein and Harris said in a joint statement late Wednesday. “We made clear our opposition to these individuals and told the White House we wanted to work together to come to consensus on a new package of nominees.” The White House announced the nomination of Collins and Lee, among other judicial designees. Daniel A. Bress was also nominated to the 9th Circuit.
What is medicine? Why it’s so important to answer this What is medicine? We recognise it in all societies past and present. But the nature of medicine differs so greatly from place to place and time to time that it’s difficult to offer a single answer. So what is it that we see in common between a traditional healer’s throwing of bones and the cardiologist’s incisions? One of the answers that often seems to be implicit in what we say and think about medicine is a curative thesis: medicine’s goal is to cure the sick. Curing the sick is the core medical competence, whose exercise is medicine’s core business. But if the curative thesis is true, then most medicine throughout history – as well as much contemporary medicine – isn’t medicine at all. Much medicine was and is ineffective, or at best partially effective. The curative thesis leads to a dismissive attitude towards the past efforts upon which any current medicine is built, as well as failing to promote profitable collaboration between traditions.
Nearly half of US adults have cardiovascular disease, study Nearly half of all adults in the United States have some type of cardiovascular disease, according to the American Heart Association, defining the condition as coronary heart disease, heart failure, stroke or high blood pressure. And after decades of declines, deaths from cardiovascular disease are on the rise again, with 840,678 deaths recorded in 2016, up from 836,546 in 2015, according to the association’s annual report Heart and Stroke Statistics, published Thursday in the medical journal Circulation. “Cardiovascular disease produces immense health and economic burdens in the United States and globally,” the authors wrote. The 48% prevalence of cardiovascular disease — nearly 121.5 million adults — is a significant uptick over the rate cited last year, although this was mainly driven by the way high blood pressure is defined. Hypertension guidelines were updated so that people whose blood pressure is 130/80 or above are now considered “hypertensive”; previously, the definition was 140/90.
Health Alert: 124 cases of measles now confirmed in Rockland County Health officials say there are now 124 confirmed cases of measles in Rockland County, with one suspected case still being investigated. These confirmed cases are the total since the outbreak began in October and are not all active cases. Rockland County’s Commissioner of Health, Dr. Patricia Schnabel Ruppert, announced in November that all schools in the Village of New Square were required to keep students who are un-vaccinated or under-vaccinated against the disease home until 21 days have passed since the last case of measles is confirmed in the county. The same restriction applies to schools in Spring Valley and Monsey with a measles vaccination rate of less than 70 percent. Symptoms of measles include a fever, rash, cough, conjunctivitis or runny nose, and they could appear 10 to 12 days after exposure.The virus can remain in the air or on surfaces for up to two hours. To prevent the spread of illness, health officials are advising individuals who may have been exposed and who have symptoms consistent with measles to contact their health care provider, a local clinic, or a local emergency department before going for care.
Public Health Officials Know: Recently Vaccinated Individuals Spread Disease – (a 2015 reminder from WAPF) Physicians and public health officials know that recently vaccinated individuals can spread disease and that contact with the immunocompromised can be especially dangerous. For example, the Johns Hopkins Patient Guide warns the immunocompromised to “Avoid contact with children who are recently vaccinated,” and to “Tell friends and family who are sick, or have recently had a live vaccine (such as chicken pox, measles, rubella, intranasal influenza, polio or smallpox) not to visit.” A statement on the website of St. Jude’s Hospital warns parents not to allow people to visit children undergoing cancer treatment if they have received oral polio or smallpox vaccines within four weeks, have received the nasal flu vaccine within one week, or have rashes after receiving the chickenpox vaccine or MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine.
Vaxxed II raises nearly $50K, needs another $100K to finish production for a Summer release… donateHERE The Vaxxed II film (that has the vaccine deep state in a total panic) has so far raised almost $50K for production thanks to an outpouring of public support. The film needs another $100K to finish production and editing, achieving a Summer 2019 release. Watch the trailer at this link on Brighteon.com. Your support is crucial to seeing this film to completion and telling the world the truth about vaccines. Donate now at this IndieGoGo link. The film features powerful video interviews from the real-world moms and dads whose children have been permanently damaged by toxic vaccines. I’ve seen some of the footage. The true stories of vaccine-damaged children are horrifying. This film is the vaccine industry’s worst nightmare. They will do anything to try to stop it.
