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 here to help us dissect the latest political news that’s fit to print:
North Korea’s foreign minister visits Sweden amid talks of Kim-Trump summit North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho is making a rare and surprise visit to Sweden amid speculation that Stockholm might be the location of the planned summit between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Sweden is the diplomatic liaison between the U.S. and North Korea. Swedish officials have offered their country as a possible summit site. Talks “will focus on Sweden’s consular responsibilities as a protecting power for the United States, Canada and Australia,” the ministry said in a statement, but they also will address the security situation on the Korean Peninsula.
The big lesson of the Tillerson firing What surprised Washington foreign policy and political gurus
was not Rex Tillerson’s dismissal as secretary of state, which had been rumored for months, but how it was done. President Trump fired his secretary of state in a tweet. It was the Washington equivalent of breaking up with your romantic partner with a Post-it. “Mike Pompeo, Director of the CIA, will become our new Secretary of State,” the president tweeted at 8:44 a.m. Tuesday. “He will do a fantastic job! Thank you to Rex Tillerson for his service!” The dismissal stunned Washington. It shouldn’t have. It was obvious that President Trump and Rex Tillerson had different foreign policy views and that the president, understandably, wanted a chief foreign policy adviser like Mike Pompeo, who more closely shares his world view.
Hillary Clinton blames ‘pressure’ from men for why white women voted for Trump Hillary Clinton’s trip to India is evoking memories from her failed 2016 bid for president, as the Democrat makes headlines for blaming racism and misogyny for her loss while taking stumbles in front of the cameras. During her appearance in India over the weekend, Clinton claimed she lost the 2016 presidential race in part because white women didn’t stand up to the men in their lives pressuring them to vote for Donald Trump. “We do not do well with white men and we don’t do well with married, white women,” Clinton said at a conference in Mumbai, India. “And part of that is an identification with the Republican Party, and a sort of ongoing pressure to vote the way that your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should.”
Boeing Employee Who Met Trump: ‘The Tax Cut Impacts Our Lives’ President Trump met
with workers Wednesday in St. Louis who said they’re benefiting from the Republicans’ tax cuts. During the president’s visit to Boeing Co. for a business roundtable, Hazel Jean Mims said she wanted Trump to understand how the legislation impacts everyday Americans. “The tax cut actually impacts our lives,” said Mims, who explained to the president that the extra cash will go into her daughter’s college fund.
Hour 2 – Space Travel Does Some Weird Stuff….
Astronaut’s DNA no longer matches that of his identical twin, NASA finds Spending a year in space not only changes your outlook, it transforms your genes. Preliminary results from NASA’s Twins Study reveal that 7% of astronaut Scott Kelly’s genes did not return to normal after his return to Earth two years ago. The study looks at what happened to Kelly before, during and after he spent one year aboard the International Space Station through an extensive comparison with his identical twin, Mark, who remained on Earth. NASA has learned that the formerly identical twins are no longer genetically the same.
Homeopathy Action Alert!
Help Save Homeopathy! The FDA wants to up-end the homeopathic industry—because it’s become
too popular. Help us stop this insanity! Action Alert! The FDA has tossed out the guidance that previously governed homoeopathy and has proposed a new framework that threatens the entire industry. Long-time natural health champion Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT) and Rep. Ryan Costello (R-PA) are spearheading efforts in Congress to correct this overreach. They are preparing sign-on letters which argue that the FDA should not completely withdraw the previous regulatory framework (Compliance Policy Guide 400.400) for homeopathic products.
Bill to legalize CBD oil lands on Gov. Holcomb’s desk Outwardly, lawmakers say they are pleased CBD oil will be legal in Indiana. More privately, many of them told me they are frustrated the governor and some Senators insisted on burdensome labeling requirements that will likely prevent many manufacturers from selling their products in Indiana. A bi-partisan group of lawmakers pushed for limited labeling restrictions since CBD oil had no known negative side effects, but sources tell WTHR the governor and Sen. Mike Young (the author of SB 52 and chair of its conference committee) would not alter the rigid labeling mandates. CBD oil will become legal the moment the governor signs the law. But retailers have only until July 1 to make sure all CBD products they’re selling meet the new labeling requirements. I expect State Excise Police to once again start inspecting stores in July looking for violators, and raiding retailers who are selling CBD with insufficient labels. (Because they have nothing better to do, right?) You can buy any CBD oil with less than .3 percent THC before July 1, so if you don’t want to worry about labels, stock up on trusted CBD oil products in the next 100 days.
Medicinal cannabis is safe and effective—it’s time to reboot research Medicinal cannabis is safe
and effective in pain relief, and researchers are calling for the treatment to be properly established in our modern medical arsenal. A new special issue of the European Journal of Internal Medicineprovides a comprehensive overview of current evidence for the use of cannabis and derived products in medicine, and calls for more research to improve the evidence base for its use. “We feel it is absolutely imperative to not only present the current state of affairs, but also propose the development of the scientific research program within the paradigm of evidence-based medicine,” said Prof. Victor Novack, guest editor of the special issue and a professor at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in Israel. “Our ultimate aim should be to scientifically establish the actual place of medical cannabis derived products in the modern medical arsenal.”
Navy investigates surﬁng as a way to counteract PTSD In song and prose, surfing has long been celebrated as a way to soothe the mind and invigorate the body. But scientific evidence has been limited. Now the Navy has embarked on a $1 million research project to determine whether surfing has therapeutic value, especially for military personnel with post-traumatic stress disorder, depression or sleep problems. Researchers say surfing offers great promise as therapy. It is a challenging exercise in an outdoor environment; people surf individually or in groups; military surfers who are reluctant to attend traditional group therapy open up about their common experiences when talking to other surfers on the beach.
How About Klingon As A Second Language?
Duolingo adds Klingon from ‘Star Trek’ to language courses The makers of popular language-learning website and app Duolingo announced the addition of its latest course — Star Trek language Klingon. Duolingo announced that, starting Thursday, users will be offered the opportunity to learn Klingon, the language created for the fictional race from the Star Trek franchise.The program creators said Klingon is considered a “conlag,” or “constructed language,” and is one of the most popular such languages, with several books written on the subject and even the creation of a Klingon Language Institute. The Klingon language course, which like other Duolingo courses teaches the language using game-like exercises, was designed by Stockholm-based Star Trek superfan Felix Malmenbeck.
