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 is here to help us dissect the latest political news that’s fit to print:
#OnThisDay in 1775, the shot heard round the world is fired, and the American Revolution begins with the Battles of Lexington & Concord. This is where we start our journey back to the Sacred Fire of Liberty with Jonathan Emord on today’s broadcast. What was it that led to the American Revolution and how did George Washington overcome insurmountable odds against the British Regulars in battle?
What a difference 250 years makes as 1/2 of American applauds the Trump tax cuts, 1/2 want more free stuff and almost no one argues on principle that a graduated income tax is a key plank in the Communist Manifesto! We will discuss the foundational principles of life, liberty and property that have gradually been phased out of public education (i.e. government indoctrination). Government schools teach the glory of government rather than the importance of defending individual liberty.
We must not look to government to correct the very mistakes that are now institutionalized. And political parties? The Democrats and Republicans are more representative of communist and socialist ideologies rather than principally representing the ideals of a republican form of government.
Generations of Americans have been duped into believing that you can get something for nothing. Historical ignorance leads to spiritual immaturity. Government counts on it. But not here. Not now. Not ever. Consider the Sacred Fire of Liberty rekindled.
Learn more about how General George Washington led the American army to victory in the Revolutionary War. In June 1775, Congress ordered General George Washington to take command of the Continental Army besieging the British in Boston. Despite having little practical experience in managing large, conventional armies, Washington proved to be a capable and resilient leader of the American military forces during the war. While he lost more battles than he won, George Washington employed a winning strategy that included signal victories at the Battle of Trenton in 1776 and Yorktown in 1781. Washington’s greatest wartime legacy was his decision to surrender his commission to Congress, affirming the principle of civilian control of the military in the new United States.
Donald Trump: America’s economy is back and roaring and its people are winning Tuesday is a day hardworkingAmericans may dread more than any other. Tax Day. A day that individuals and families, small business owners and part-time workers struggle to conquer a burdensome, complex and extremely unfair tax code to determine how much money they owe the government. But we are changing Tax Day for Americans across the country. This is the last year Americans will fill out outdated, complicated tax forms. In the years ahead, because I signed one of the largest tax cuts in history and the most sweeping tax reform in a generation, many Americans will complete their taxes on a simple, single sheet of paper. Remarkably, Congress had to pass this critical legislation without a single Democrat’s vote.
Hour 2 – Now Here’s Some Brutal Honesty!
Curing cancer ‘not a realistic goal,’ doctors focus on managing instead of curing disease Over the last five years, cancer research has seen the “greatest advances,” including a new approach to treating the complex disease as a “chronic disease,” instead of trying to cure it. “We have seen the greatest advances in cancer medicine in the last five years with drugs targeting the immune system moving into the clinic and showing remarkable response rates with quite a few different malignancies,” Lisa Coussens, Ph.D., Chair of the Department of Cell, Developmental & Cancer Biology, said to Fox News at the American Association for Cancer Research annual conference. However, the response rates do not indicate that medical doctors and scientists are getting closer to a cure – or if that is still the goal. “With regards to a cure for that, it’s really not a realistic goal. I don’t know if cancer is a disease that can be cured. I think for most of us, the goal is management where we think about cancer like other chronic disease,” Dr. Coussens said. “50 years ago diabetes was a death sentence, now it is a chronic disease that is managed.”
Polypharmacy more likely for cancer survivors Caitlin C. Murphy, Ph.D., M.P.H., from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, and colleagues used data from the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey for 5,216 cancer survivors and 19,588 non-cancer controls matched by age, sex, and survey year to examine patterns of prescription medication use and polypharmacy. The researchers found that, compared with non-cancer controls, a higher percentage of cancer survivors were prescribed five or more unique medications (64 versus 51.5 percent), including drugs with abuse potential. Compared with controls, a higher percentage of newly (one year or less since diagnosis) and previously (more than one year since diagnosis) diagnosed survivors were prescribed medications, with large differences with respect to central nervous system agents (65.8 versus 57.4 versus 46 percent). Benzodiazepines and/or opioids were prescribed to nearly 10 percent of survivors and about 5 percent of controls. Survivors’ prescription expenditures were more than double those of controls (median, $1,633 versus $784). Across age and comorbidity categories, the findings persisted.
Study predicts 2018 flu vaccine will have 20 percent efficacy A Rice University study predicts that this fall’s flu vaccine—a new H3N2 formulation for the first time since 2015—will likely have the same reduced efficacy against the dominant circulating strain of influenza A as the vaccine given in 2016 and 2017 due to viral mutations related to vaccine production in eggs. The Rice method, known as pEpitope (pronounced PEE-epih-tope), was invented more than 10 years ago as a fast, inexpensive way of gauging the effectiveness of proposed flu vaccine formulations. The latest pEpitope study, which is available online this week in Clinical Infectious Diseases, suggests pEpitope is a more accurate predictor of vaccine efficacy than long-relied-upon ferret tests, particularly for data gathered in the past decade. The pEpitope method accounts for 77 percent of what impacts efficacy of the vaccine in humans.
More Bad News For Statins
Study: Cholesterol-Lowering Statin Drugs Increase Risk of ALS Lou Gehrig’s Disease A recent study connecting increased statin drug use with rising ALS was discussed by Dr. Malcom Kendrick. He had followed earlier similar studies with similar concerns, but this one confirmed Dr. Kendrick’s suspicions. ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), is also known as motor neuron disease (MND), or Lou Gehrig’s disease. It is a progressive neurological disease that destroys neurons in nerves that extend laterally from the spine, thus the word lateral is part of its description. Sclerosis means scarring or hardening, which incapacitates the nerves leading to a loss of muscle control. The term Amyotrophic is a combination of Latin/Greek syllables that means “no muscle nourishment” leading to complete atrophy. But the loss of motor control from lateral movement neuron damage progresses to losing the ability to partially or fully physically function in many areas required of the human body, such as walking, talking, eating, walking, and even breathing. ALS patients can die while slowly suffocating.
Does pot really dull a teen’s brain? Pot-smoking teens may not be dooming themselves to a destiny of dim-wittedness, a new review suggests. The memory and thinking abilities of teenagers do not appear to be as strongly affected by heavy marijuana use as previously suspected, according to an evaluation of data from dozens of previous studies. Further, intellectual effects that do crop up from frequent pot use appear to wear off soon after a teenager stops partaking, researchers report. However, this study only looked at the short-term intellectual effects of heavy pot use, not use for many years, which could have a significant detrimental impact, experts said. Study said lead researcher J. Cobb Scott said that after 72 hours of abstinence, the memory and thinking deficits of heavy users diminishes to the point of insignificance when compared against the intellectual capacity of nonusers. He is a neuropsychologist with the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine in Philadelphia.
