Thursday on The Robert Scott Bell Show:
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 are here to help us dissect the latest political news that’s fit to print:
Hey Republicans, if you want to avoid a government shutdown, it’s time to go it alone without Democrats It’s time for Republicans in the U.S. House to take decisive action without delay on the issues of immigration reform and government funding that will prevent a government shutdown Friday night. The House should debate and vote on a two-year budget bill backed by the White House that increases military funding. It should do the same on the Securing America’s Future Act introduced by Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va.
Trump administration announces new ‘conscience and religious freedom’ division at
HHS The Trump administration announced on Thursday a new division within the Department of Health and Human Services devoted to “conscience and religious freedom.” Social conservatives and religious liberty leaders have anticipated conscience and religious freedom protections to come out of HHS, and the work of the new division, which will fall under the purview of the Office of Civil Rights, will likely pave the way for health care workers to refuse specific types of care, like birth control or abortion, based on their religious or conscience objections.
Senior Pentagon soldier warns ISIS: Quit or be shot in the face, beaten with entrenching tools The Pentagon’s senior enlisted service member has issued a blunt warning to Islamic State fighters, saying in new social-media posts that they could either surrender or face death in a number of forms, including being beaten to death with steel entrenching tools. Army Command Sgt. Maj. John Wayne Troxell, the senior enlisted adviser in the Pentagon, issued the warnings on Facebook and Twitter. Senior U.S. officials, including Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, have warned Islamic State fighters for months that they must lay down their weapons or face annihilation, but Troxell’s message was unusually forceful.
Hour 2 – The Trump-hating Media Desperation Is Transparent
The American President’s ‘Excellent’ Health With the predictable ostentation of tradition, and the
particular scrutiny born of untraditional concerns, the health of President Trump was announced to us this week as “excellent.” We might all be forgiven for thinking that means something formal, standardized, and reliable. As a medical insider, however, I regret to report we are not nearly so precise as that. Characterizations of health are subjective, rather in the eyes of the beholder, and like all else–relative. We are invited accordingly to ask: excellent, compared to what? Even that tends to vary, but the customary answer would be: the prevailing norms of a given population or culture.
Special Guest Paola Brown!
Paola Brown is a homesteading mother of three, and an engaging educator who has taught college English courses for over 10 years. In recent years, she has been an influential teacher of homeopathy, gearing her work towards fellow moms and their families. Today Paola sits on the board of the Texas Society of Homeopathy, and is also the President of Americans for Homeopathy Choice. She is passionate about empowering moms and families about homeopathic principles.
Paola is here to discuss the FDA’s Draft Guidance that they published just before Christmas (“Drug Products Labeled as Homeopathic.”) In a nutshell: This document, if ratified, threatens the free access Americans have to homeopathy, and could set dangerous precedent, limiting the rights of individuals to choose their own appropriate healthcare.
FDA Declares All Homeopathic Drugs Illegal Threatening Remedies for Millions of Americans But not all will be pulled from the market, yet. Action Alert! The policy comes in the form of a guidance document, which lays out the FDA’s current position on the regulation of homeopathic drugs.
In the guidance, the FDA says:
- Any homeopathic drug that has not been considered “generally recognized as safe and effective” (GRAS/E) is considered a new drug;
- FDA has not determined that any homeopathic drugs are GRAS/E;
- A new drug cannot be marketed unless it goes through the FDA’s approval process;
- No homeopathic drugs have gone through FDA approval nor can any producer afford to take them through the approval process.
That’s right: in one fell swoop, the FDA has declared that virtually every single homeopathic drug on the market is being sold illegally.
Question of The Day!
My thyroid levels come back suggesting that I am hypothyroid. I would like to try to “feed” my thyroid without taking medication. You talk about selenium in your book but I do not know what dosage I should start with. Also, after I am taking this for awhile should I have my levels retested to see if there is a change or what would you suggest? Thank you!
