Wednesday on The Robert Scott Bell Show:

Supreme Court backs religious groups against Covid-19 restrictions in Colorado and New Jersey The Supreme Court on Tuesday again sided with religious groups in Colorado and New Jersey that argued that the states’ covid-related restrictions on worship services violated religious liberty rights, the latest in a string of rulings against pandemic guidelines in recent weeks. In unsigned orders, the justices wiped away lower court opinions in challenges that went in favor of the states: one brought by the Rev. Kevin Robinson and Rabbi Yisrael A. Knopfler in New Jersey and the other brought by a small Colorado church. The cases highlight the impact of Justice Amy Coney Barrett on the bench. Before her arrival, Chief Justice John Roberts had sided with the liberals, including the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, against houses of worship in similar disputes. Since Barrett’s arrival, however, and the establishment of a strong 6-3 conservative majority, the court now has reversed course and has the necessary votes to side with religious groups.

Vaccinated Israelis to receive ‘free movement’ waivers Israelis who choose to get vaccinated against coronavirus will receive “free movement” waivers, allowing them to bypass certain health restrictions, the Health Ministry has said. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said last week that Israel will begin administrating coronavirus vaccinations on December 27 and that Israel was ready to vaccinate 60,000 people a day. Thousands of doses of the Pfizer vaccine arrived in Israel last week via special charter flights. The so-called “green passports” will be handed out only after the second shot is administered since Pfizer vaccine requires two jabs in order to be effective. Holders of the passports will be able to attend public events and eat at restaurants among other things, Health Ministry Director-General Chezy Levy told Channel 12 on Sunday. They will also not be required to enter mandatory quarantine after contact with a confirmed patient or after returning from a “red country” abroad. Those travelling will also not be required to take a mandatory COVID-19 test before leaving the country. Health Minister Yuli Edelstein, meanwhile, told Channel 13 the idea behind the plan was not to grant privileges to the “green passport” holders, but to make sure they can engage in activities that are potentially dangerous for those who had not been immunized.

Dr. Rand Paul Introduces HEMP Act to Relieve Unnecessary Constraints on Hemp Industry, Provide Transparency and Certainty Today, U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) continued his efforts to address Kentucky hemp farmers’ concerns with federal overreach and bring clarity, transparency, and certainty to regulation by introducing the Hemp Economic Mobilization Plan (HEMP) Act of 2020. In response to concerns raised by Kentucky hemp farmers and processors, Dr. Paul’s HEMP Act would change the legal definition of hemp to raise the THC limit from 0.3% to 1%. Currently, any hemp crops testing above 0.3% have to be destroyed.
The legislation would require testing of the final hemp-derived product instead of the hemp flower or plant itself, as the 15-day window for testing the hemp flower or plant does not take potential testing backlogs, lack of personnel to collect samples, harvesting time, or environmental factors that farmers cannot control into account. Dr. Paul’s HEMP Act would also protect legitimate hemp farmers, processors, and transporters by requiring hemp shipments to contain a copy of the seed certificate showing the hemp was grown from 1% THC seed, and it would address current uncertainty by defining a margin of error for testing THC levels. Neither current law nor the USDA’s interim final rule provide such a margin. “For years, I’ve led the fight in Washington to restore one of Kentucky’s most historically vital crops by legalizing industrial hemp. We achieved a hard-won victory, but there is still work to do to prevent the federal government from weighing down our farmers with unnecessary bureaucratic micromanaging. My legislation will help this growing industry reach its full economic potential, and I am proud the bill has strong support all the way from local Kentucky farmers and activists to national groups, including the American Farm Bureau Federation,” said Dr. Paul.

Fauci says Santa Claus has ‘innate immunity,’ won’t be spreading COVID-19 to anyone this Christmas Santa Claus is coming to town. And he’s not bringing COVID-19. At least, that’s the word from Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s leading infectious disease expert. “Santa is exempt from this because Santa, of all the good qualities, has a lot of good innate immunity,” Fauci told USA TODAY this week. It should come as no surprise. As children already know, Santa is superhuman. He flies around the world in one night, delivers millions of toys and eats his weight in cookies. But with millions of Americans already sick with COVID-19, children have been worried about Santa, especially this Christmas Eve when he visits millions of homes. And there’s no denying that Santa, because he is older and overweight, would at first glance appear to be at higher risk of developing severe disease from COVID-19. Fauci is telling kids not to worry, though. “Santa is not going to be spreading any infections to anybody,” he said.

Santa, Mrs. Claus expose children to COVID at tree lighting Dozens of children who attended a tree lighting event in Georgia may have been exposed to COVID-19 after a pair performing as Santa and Mrs. Claus tested positive for the virus, officials said. Commissioners’ Chair Robert Parker said about 50 children, including his own, took pictures with Santa and Mrs. Claus, whose names weren’t immediately released. Both tested positive after the Dec. 10 event in Ludowici about 46 miles (74 kilometers) south of Savannah. Parker said the pair, who didn’t display any symptoms during the event, portrayed the Clauses for “many years” and had good intentions. “I have personally known both “Santa” and “Mrs. Claus” my entire life and I can assure everyone that they would have never knowingly done anything to place any children in danger,” Parker said in the statement. It’s unknown how many people in attendance were exposed to the virus. The county school system has asked parents to keep children at home if they were exposed or if they are showing symptoms. However, in-person school is not canceled. Parker said the exposure is cause for concern but said “exposures happen every day.”


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?

Vaccine Passports and Health Passes: Is Showing Your “Papers” the “New Normal?” Life cannot return to normal until there is a vaccine for COVID 19. At least, that is what governments, corporations, and their mainstream propaganda media outlets have been incessantly arguing. Interestingly, the development of that vaccine was “warp speed,” allegedly at the behest of the Trump administration. “Warp speed” also took place in other countries like the UK, where shots have been administered. This information has caused some to question whether the vaccine was ready long before the announcement was made or, indeed, before the pandemic ever began. Years ago, “conspiracy theorists” were ridiculed for warning of a system in which vaccines would be required to access normal aspects of life. Today, however, government officials and MSM are now openly discussing the very same system.

San Francisco to rename Abraham Lincoln High School because former president did not demonstrate that ‘black lives mattered to him’ – as woke renaming committee also takes aim at Democrat senator Dianne Feinstein and Teddy Roosevelt A San Francisco district is planning to rename a school named after Abraham Lincoln because the former president did not demonstrate that ‘black lives mattered to him’. The president, who is often held up as an American hero for abolishing slavery, is just one of 44 historical figures soon to have their names scratched off schools within the San Francisco Unified School District. Other names include George Washington, Herbert Hoover and Senator Dianne Feinstein, whose name will be stripped from the Dianne Feinstein Elementary School for allowing the Confederate flag to fly outside City Hall back in 1984 when she was mayor. The renaming of the schools comes as part of a nationwide reckoning around racial justice that has seen Confederate flags banned, military bases renamed and statues toppled of racist and Confederate figures across America in the wake of the police killing of George Floyd.

Cornell Offers Exemption to Flu Vaccine for ‘People of Color’ Because of “historical injustices and current events,” Cornell University will grant an exemption from the requirement for all students to get a flu vaccination for “people of color.” Most of us are far too logical to follow the reasoning of this exemption. Apparently, because of “systemic racism and health inequities” in the United States, “individuals from some marginalized communities may have concerns about needing to agree to such requirements.”For example, historically, the bodies the of Black, Indigenous, and other People of Color (BIPOC) have been mistreated, and used by people in power, sometimes for profit or medical gain. It is understandable that the current Compact requirements may feel suspect or even exploitative to some BIPOC members of the Cornell community. Additionally, recent acts of violence against Black people by law enforcement may contribute to feelings of distrust or powerlessness. Yes, but what does any of this have to do with not getting a flu shot? Police are not giving the flu shot. Why should that matter? At the same time, we know that long-standing social inequalities and health disparities have resulted in COVID-19 disproportionately affecting BIPOC individuals. Higher percentages of individuals from these communities become infected with COVID, and the health outcomes related to infection are often more serious. Away from campus community, BIPOC individuals are not as likely to have access to preventive services or quality health care. The systems, services, and policies being implemented at Cornell seek to address these inequalities as well as the differential impacts.

This pandemic has politicians treating the public like children During a news conference last week, Gov. Cuomo put up a chart highlighting where the novel coronavirus is being spread. It turns out, a shocking 74 percent of new cases were caught at gatherings in private homes. Restaurants and bars, meanwhile, accounted for just 1.43 percent. So the governor banned indoor dining, specifically in New York City, which has the second-lowest case rate and the second-lowest hospitalization rate of any region in the state. Makes sense? Of course, it doesn’t. Cases have been rising sharply in our state, a few months after Cuomo published a memoir celebrating his triumph over COVID-19. He must’ve felt he had to do something. And something is what he did. His actions — shuttering businesses that weren’t responsible for most of the spread — are a symptom of the wider infantilization of the American people by elected officials. Politicians wield a vast power for its own sake: power over subjects whom they consider too stupid to object or to make rational decisions for themselves. Cuomo, whose decisions yielded the highest death rate of any state, doesn’t know how to slow the spread of COVID-19. Instead, he keeps handing down unscientific edicts against already-struggling businesses.

Stevia: The Healthy Ancient Sweetener {Plus a MUST-HAVE Apple Pie Recipe!} You’ve likely heard of Stevia, the popular sweetener that everyone seems to hail as the new healthy alternative to sugar. But is the hype justified? Let’s take a look. The stevia plant is a member of the daisy and ragweed family, also known as candyleaf, sweetleaf, and sugarleaf (scientific name Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni). It has been used for more than 1,500 years by the indigenous Guarani people of Brazil and Paraguay as a natural sweetener, medicine, and sweet treat.1 Stevia is unlike other sugar substitutes in that it’s derived from a plant rather than artificially synthesized. The Italian botanist, Moises Santiago Bertoni, is often credited with the discovery of stevia in the late 1800s. However, native Guarani people had already been using it for centuries to treat burns, colic, and stomach problems. They also habitually chewed the leaves as a sweet treat. Today, the stevia plant is cultivated widely for those sweet leaves, which are used to make many commercially available, non-caloric, artificial sweeteners. The natural chemical compounds in stevia leaves that are responsible for its sweetness are known as steviol glycosides – specifically, stevioside, rebaudioside (which has 5 variations: A, B, C, D, E, and F), steviolbioside, and isosteviol. Stevioside is sweet, but has a bitter licorice-like aftertaste, while rebaudiosides by themselves are sweet without the bitterness and are usually present in highly-refined commercial stevia products. Raw stevia products contain both stevioside and one or more rebaudiosides, while most highly processed forms only contain rebaudiosides.

Herbs, Spice & Everything Nice: Your Guide to Healthy Holiday Eating It’s that time of the year again… laughter is in the air, mistletoe is springing up everywhere, and the hustle and bustle of gift buying and family time is lifting everyone’s spirits into relative good cheer. It’s also the season of holiday hams and turkey, candied yams, pecan pies, and other traditional Christmas fare. Beyond the threat of expanding your waistline, the season’s culinary delights can be a formidable health nightmare if you’re trying to live a cancer-free lifestyle. Total abstinence from these delectable delights isn’t really an option for most – who wants to be that garish suppertime Grinch, after all? Also, there’s always the New Year to get back on track and in shape, right? I’d be lying if I said that there hasn’t been a time when I opted to just gorge on all those Christmas goodies and ask questions later, which is probably something you’ve done as well. But the good news is, there’s a better way to handle these holiday temptations – and it all begins with your spice rack. Truth be told, you don’t necessarily have to sacrifice all the festive flavors of the holiday season to stay healthy this Christmas. Many of the most common herbs and spices found in your favorite holiday dishes are packed with unique nutritional and medicinal compounds. Many of these compounds have been scientifically shown to aid your body in balancing blood sugar levels, promote healthy digestion, and even help to lower your overall risk of cancer.
