Monday on The Robert Scott Bell Show:

Selfish: The King of Covid Epithets Enter “Covid” plus “selfish” in a Google search box and you’ll get over 28 million hits. Here’s the type of headline that pops up:

  • “Don’t be one of the selfish idiots putting us all at risk” (Edinburgh News, Sept. 24, 2020)
  • “Too many Americans are selfish, and it’s killing people” (Los Angeles Times, Jan. 1, 2021)
  • “As long as selfishness wins, the pandemic is here to stay (Orlando Weekly, Jan. 12, 2022)
  • “Selfish, stupid COVID protesters get short shrift in Wellington” (Aljazeera, Feb. 14, 2022)

Since the early days of the Covid-19 pandemic, people have slapped the “selfish” label on those who didn’t share their zeal for lockdowns and restrictions. Remember the “disgusting display of selfish behavior” in Missouri’s Lake of the Ozarks on May 24, 2020? The “selfish and dangerous” people who flocked to Trinity Bellwoods park in Toronto that same day? The “selfish and irresponsible” beach goers in the UK town of Bournemouth two months later? The word “selfish” rose to new heights as the global vaccination campaign ramped up throughout 2021. In July, UK Cabinet Minister Michael Gove threatened to bar the “selfish vaccine refusers” from events, and five months later a Canadian radio personality exhorted the unvaxxed to “stop being a scientifically ignorant, selfish drag on society.” In April 2022, the word gathered fresh steam when a judge struck down the transportation mask mandate in the US. A Washington Post article described plane travelers’ reaction to the mid-air announcement as “whoops of selfish delight,” while the Boston Globe decried the jubilation as the “unmasking of a selfish nation.”

The Dangers of Compelled Belief Jay Bhattacharya recently issued a powerful warning against pending legislation in California designed to compel physicians to adhere to the official science on COVID. Here’s Bhattacharya: According to California Assembly Bill 2098, physicians who deviate from an authorized set of beliefs would do so at risk to their medical license. The bill, written by Assemblyman Evan Low, a Democrat in Silicon Valley, and currently making its way through the California Legislature, is motivated by the idea that practicing doctors are spreading “misinformation” about the risks of Covid, its treatment, and the Covid vaccine. It declares that physicians and surgeons who “disseminate or promote misinformation or disinformation related to COVID-19, including false or misleading information regarding the nature and risks of the virus, its prevention and treatment; and the development, safety, and effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines” shall be subject to “disciplinary action,” which could result in the loss of the doctor’s medical license. The language of the bill itself is intentionally vague about what constitutes “misinformation,” which makes it even more damaging. Doctors, fearing loss of their livelihoods, will need to hew closely to the government line on Covid science and policy, even if that line does not track the scientific evidence. After all, until recently, top government science bureaucrats like Dr. Fauci claimed that the idea that Covid came from a Wuhan laboratory was a conspiracy theory, rather than a valid hypothesis that should be open to discussion. The government’s track record on discerning Covid truths is poor.

When does life begin? Religions don’t agree In a bill introduced this past week, a Louisiana lawmaker describes human life as “created in the image of God” and seeks to make abortion a homicide from the moment of fertilization – sparking concerns from reproductive rights advocates that such a law would also jeopardize access to contraception and fertility treatments. Debates around abortion often center around the issue of when life begins, and adjacent religious and moral questions. It came up during oral arguments last year in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, a major abortion case currently before the Supreme Court. Justice Sonia Sotomayor asked Mississippi’s solicitor general to explain his view that the state should be allowed to ban abortions, calling it a religious question that’s been debated since the beginning of time. “It’s still debated in religions,” she said. “So when you say this is the only right that takes away from the state the ability to protect a life, that’s a religious view, isn’t it?” Kaitlyn didn’t want an abortion – she wanted a baby. But last year, when she was about 16 weeks pregnant, doctors told her there was a fatal problem with the fetus. Her choices were to terminate, or wait for a stillbirth. Through the process, Kaitlyn was guided – and comforted – by her faith. “In Judaism, life and breath are essentially the same thing,” she said. “So in Judaism, life begins when you take your first breath.”

Question of The Day!

Any information or opinion about Dr. Simoncini using 7% iodine to remove skin cancer?
Same for his baking soda therapy for internal tumors.

Unruly air passenger rates declined in the U.S. after mask mandates were suspended A week after a federal judge in Florida struck down a government mask mandate on public transportation, the number of unruly air passenger incidents reached its lowest level since 2020, according to data the Federal Aviation Administration released on Wednesday.The agency reported 1.9 incidents per 10,000 flights during the week ending April 24, down from 4.4 incidents per 10,000 flights a week earlier. It declined to cite a reason for the drop.The decrease in incidents comes after the former F. A.A. administrator Steve Dickson implemented a zero-tolerance policy against unruly passenger behavior in January, resulting in hefty fines instead of the warning letters or counseling that were used in previous policies. Last month, the F.A.A. recommended record fines of $81,950 and $77,272 against two passengers involved in separate incidents on flights operated by American Airlines and Delta Air Lines. One woman was accused of spitting at, head-butting and biting a crew member, while another attempted to hug and kiss the passenger seated next to her before walking to the cabin door and trying to exit the plane during the flight.

Hour 2

Special Guest – Laban Ditchburn

A child badly affected by divorce, poverty and dysfunction, Laban sought validation and escapism in all the wrong places. But through self-discovery and a ton of hard work, he conquered the full gamut of addiction—alcohol, sex, gambling, drugs, and negative self-talk.  More interestingly, by finding and removing the root cause of his need to escape, giving up these addictions has been almost effortless. Today, he defines the word transformation.

Losing sixty pounds of body fat and replacing it with thirty pounds of muscle mass and bone density, Laban also found a cure for his “incurable” auto-immune disease. His mental health, cognitive function, and ability to handle, recover and thrive from extreme physical challenges, all have improved exponentially. Physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally in charge of his own destiny, Laban’s journey continues to inspire those ready to change their lives. An exemplar and a revolutionary, he revels in unabashedly sharing what he’s learned: how to conquer the demons you don’t know you have, and how to be unstoppable in getting to where you want to be.

These days he gets his fix from the madness of ultra-marathon running, smashing the glass-ceiling of limiting beliefs and the demolition of a hot carnivore BBQ. Continuing his writing, inspiring and transformational speaking, Laban is living his purpose as The World’s Best Courage Coach. He lives in the beautiful Riviera Maya of Mexico, with the woman who is responsible for his limitless approach to life, his soon to be wife, the bravest person he knows and the future mother of their giant brood of children, Anna.

Fertilizer Prices Continue Rising, Increasing Fears of Global Grain Costs and Shortages As CTH has noted since last October the rapid increases in fertilizer costs could potentially create a major issue for global food supplies later this summer.  As the farming costs continue escalating, including fertilizer and diesel fuel prices, this will eventually lead to major price increases on the harvests.   Field to fork inflation is looking increasingly severe later this year; what we have called the third wave of inflation. Beyond prices, a primary impact in the U.S. market, concerns are now escalating about grain shortages {SEE HERE} and lower European crop yields which will lead to less food products on a global basis.   According to information shared by ZeroHedge, “We think it will take at least 2-3 years to replenish global grains stocks,” Illinois-based CF Industries Holdings Inc.’s president and chief executive officer Tony Will said in a statement in Wednesday’s earnings report.” Axios is reporting on the continued escalation of fertilizer prices; however, they conveniently and purposefully avoid noting the origin of the problem in North America is directly the result of Joe Biden’s immediate energy policies that drove up the costs of natural gas (a critical component)

Inflation and savings: 7 in 10 Americans nervous about rising cost of living More than half of Americans feel they handle their finances better than their folks. A survey of 2,000 adults looked at how different generations perceive money and finds that 58 percent believe they’re better financial managers than their parents. Despite this, 65 percent still admit being uncomfortable when talking to them about money. This may be because 59 percent feel their parents have previously judged their financial habits. However, that isn’t stopping people from achieving their financial goals or teaching others about their hits and misses. Almost six in 10 say they’re confident enough in their financial habits to pass them down to their children (58%). Conducted by OnePoll on behalf of BOK Financial, the study reveals that 77 percent of people are confident in their ability to save money — especially millennials (86%). Meanwhile, 60 percent of Gen Xers admit that they lack the skills when it comes to saving a dime. Saving money has been tough, though, since 58 percent of respondents have spent money more casually during the pandemic than in previous years. Two in three people agree that inflation has had a strong impact on how much money they can save, with Gen Zers expressing the most concern (83%).
