Hour 1 – 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 and Cheryl Chumley are here to help us dissect the latest political news that’s fit to print:
Trump praises Fox analyst’s book claiming there’s a scheme to ‘frame’ Trump President Trump on Thursday offered praise for a newly released book from Fox News legal analyst and commentator Gregg Jarrett that claims there is a scheme to “frame” Trump. “Congratulations to @GreggJarrett on The TREMENDOUS success of his just out book, ‘The Russia Hoax, The Illicit Scheme To Clear Hillary Clinton& Frame Donald Trump,'” Trump tweeted. “Already number one on Amazon. Hard work from a brilliant guy. It’s the Real Story of the Rigged Witch Hunt!” Trump in recent days has escalated his attacks on special counsel Robert Mueller‘s investigation, which is examining ties between Trump campaign associates and Russia. On Wednesday, the president called on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to immediately end the Russia probe.

Paul Manafort, Michael Cohen — and the innuendo games begin Paul Manafort was hit with a guilty finding on eight of 18 financial fraud charges. Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to eight counts of campaign finance and bank and tax fraud, including making illegal contributions “in coordination and at the direction of a candidate for federal office.” And the vultures are circling — heck, dive-bombing — to tie all these court happenings back to President Donald Trump. Let the innuendo games begin. Conservative — and that’s “conservative” in quotes — New York Times columnist Bret Stephens called for Trump to resign. “I’ve been skeptical about the wisdom and merit of impeachment,” Stephens wrote. “Cohen’s guilty plea changes that. The president is clearly guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors. He should resign his office or be impeached and removed from office.”
Donald Trump’s Economy, Not Barack Obama’s At first they tried to deny its existence. Then they said it was fool’s gold. Now they want someone else to get the credit for it. That’s the short history of mainstream-media coverage of the good economic news we’ve had ever since Donald Trump won the November 2016 presidential election. After first being in denial about the obvious fact that the economy has taken off since Trump’s victory and then predicting it would soon collapse, we’ve now gotten to the point where the New York Times has no choice but to fall back on a familiar but unpersuasive argument: It’s really President Barack Obama’s good economy. That was the conceit of a front-page feature in the Sunday New York Times this past weekend. It argued that the credit for the strong gains in growth and the decline of unemployment really belongs to Obama, since positive trends were already in place when he left office. Just as interestingly, while the Times conceded that the public wasn’t buying these Democratic talking points, it claimed that Trump’s outstanding salesmanship is the main reason the public associated a booming economy with him. Conversely, it asserted that the reason no one gave Obama the economic plaudits he deserved was that the Obama administration was unwilling to boast of its achievements.
U.S. GDP Growth Hits 4.1%, Fastest Since 2014, In Win For Trump Consumer spending propelled U.S. economic growth to a 4.1% pace in the second quarter, the fastest since 2014, letting President Donald Trump claim a win for his policies even though most analysts see the high as temporary. The annualized rate of gains in gross domestic product was just shy of the 4.2% median forecast in a Bloomberg survey. It followed first-quarter growth of 2.2% that was revised from 2%, the Commerce Department reported Friday. Consumer spending grew 4%, more than estimated, while nonresidential business investment climbed at a 7.3% clip. Illustrating the volatility of some elements of GDP, net exports contributed 1.06 percentage point to the pace of growth, the most since 2013, partly on a surge in soybean shipments ahead of retaliatory tariffs. Inventories subtracted 1 point, the most since 2014, also on a decline in soybean stocks as well as those of drugs and sundries and petroleum and related products.
Trump attacks Democrats’ “radical policies” on immigration During an event honoring Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers at the White House Monday, President Trump attacked Democrats’ “radical policies” on immigration, blaming all immigration-related crime on the party’s collective “lack of knowledge, lack of understanding, or just plain stupidity.” “This new wave of anti-borders, anti-law enforcement extremism and— shameful, dangerous, it’s horrible in every way. And it’s going to stop. It’s going to stop right now. It’s going to stop today. We slowed it down, now we’re stopping it,” Mr. Trump said, apparently in response to progressive Democrats’ push to “ .” “It’s just a small group that gets a lot of publicity because they have no courage, they have no guts. They just have big, loud mouths. And we don’t want to put up with that,” he said. Mr. Trump claimed Americans are dying because of these so-called open border extremists.
The Poison Apple that would be a Convention of States “The check is in the mail.” “Of course I’ll respect you in the morning.” “A convention of states will restore freedom in America.” Only an idiot would believe any of these. They are sweet sounding promises that are nothing but lies. Article V outlines how individual changes can be made to the Constitution. It requires three fourths of the state legislatures to ratify any amendment, making it very difficult to alter our Supreme Law. That was deliberately intended. Remember the ERA Amendment? It floundered in debate for years before it died completely. A convention of states would not make individual changes to the Constitution. It would allow the document to be rewritten completely. Who do you think will be making those changes? You? Of course not. You probably don’t even know how many articles are in the Constitution. You are hardly qualified to make improvements to a document you don’t understand. Only the corrupt power-hungry in Washington will be there to enshrine their control over you in that document. That is because you are so easily swayed by a piece of paper. Once their collectivist ideas are written on paper, you will go along blindly because “it’s in the Constitution.”
Hour 2 – Is Science In A Hostage Situation?
Public Vaccine Policy Has Taken Science Hostage Earlier this month, the New York Times published an article titled “Anti-Vaccine Activists Have Taken Vaccine Science Hostage” by Melinda Wenner Moyer, a contributing editor at Scientific American. She acknowledges that scientists whose findings don’t support public vaccine policy face pressure not to publish their research. Yet, remarkably, she blames this situation not on the perverse influence of the government and vaccine industry on the science, but on critics and parents who recognize that this perversion exists and dissent from public policy! Her article provides a useful illustration of the institutionalized bias that exists, and of how the mainstream media serve to manufacture consent for public vaccine policy rather than properly informing the public about what science has to say about it. Moyer begins by expressing her opinion that parents who obtain exemptions so their child can attend public school without having to strictly follow the routine childhood vaccine schedule recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are making “wrongheaded decisions”.
Antibiotic side effects in kids lead to nearly 70,000 emergency room visits each year Antibiotics are among the most commonly prescribed medications for children in the United States, but new research shows that they sometimes cause more harm than good. In a study supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the authors used nationwide estimates for outpatient antibiotic prescriptions and data from a nationally representative sample of emergency room visits, all looking at the use of antibiotics by those under the age of 19. From 2011-2015, reactions and other side effects from antibiotics led to an estimated 70,000 ER visits each year. Most visits, 86 percent, were for allergic reactions which ranged from mild, the most common (rash, itching) to moderate and severe (anaphylaxis, angioedema, severe swelling beneath the skin). The risk of an ER visit also varied by the child’s age and the type of antibiotic. Children aged 2 or younger carried the highest risk of a side effect, with 41 percent of visits involving children in this age group. Amoxicillin, Amoxicillin and sulfamethoxazole/trimethoprim, both commonly prescribed antibiotics, were the most implicated in side effects among children aged 9 or younger and 10-19, respectively.
Question of The Day!
Hi Robert and Super D and guests. Love you all brothers and sisters. Robert hope you didn’t have to build Roberts ark yesterday lol. I am writing in today because I’m tired of smoke, no I don’t smoke cigarettes. I am in Bc, Canada, we Canucks have about 500 forest fires and in the news there saying it is equivalent to smoking 7 cigarettes a day. I have air purifiers in the home. I was curious if there’s anything we can do to contract the effects of the smoke? Would nebulizing silver help? Is there anything else you could recommend? Thank you Robert, God bless you, Super D and guests. Keep rocking the health world.
Here Comes The BOOM
Bayer’s Monsanto faces 8,000 lawsuits on glyphosate The number of U.S. lawsuits brought against Bayer’s (BAYGn.DE) newly acquired Monsanto has jumped to about 8,000, as the German drugmaker braces for years of legal wrangling over alleged cancer risks of glyphosate-based weedkillers. Bayer had previously disclosed 5,200 such lawsuits against Monsanto, which it acquired in a $63 billion deal completed in June. “The number of plaintiffs in both state and federal litigation is approximately 8,000 as of end-July. These numbers may rise or fall over time but our view is that the number is not indicative of the merits of the plaintiffs’ cases,” Bayer Chief Executive Werner Baumann told analysts in a conference call on Thursday. Bayer shares have lost more than 10 percent since Monsanto was ordered on Aug. 10 to pay $289 million in damages in the first U.S. lawsuit over glyphosate-based weedkillers such as Roundup and Ranger Pro.
Cheerios Weedkiller Class Action Lawsuit Filed Against General Mills Over Glyphosate Ingredient General Mills is facing a potentially damaging class action lawsuit in the U.S. after a Florida woman accused it of engaging in deceptive business practices, by not alerting the public that their Cheerios and Honey Nut Cheerios cereals contain the known carcinogen and the world’s most used weedkilller – glyphosate. This new class action follows the landmark cancer trial verdict in San Francisco very closely, in which Monsanto was ordered by a jury to pay over USD $289 Million in total damages to the former school groundskeeper Dewayne Johnson, a California father who has non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, which was caused by Monsanto’s glyphosate-based weedkiller Roundup. Florida based Mounira Doss filed the Cheerios weedkiller class action lawsuit last Thursday, stating that she has purchased both Cheerios and Honey Nut Cheerios. She claims that both herself and other consumers would not have purchased the cereals had they known that the product contained a harmful carcinogen.
Baby poop may be source of beneficial probiotics Probiotics seem to be everywhere these days—in yogurt, pickles, bread, even dog food. But there’s one place that may surprise you: There are probiotics in dirty diapers. Yes, that’s right—baby poop. Scientists at Wake Forest School of Medicine have developed a probiotic “cocktail” derived from gut bacteria strains found in infant feces that may help increase the body’s ability to produce short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs).”Short-chain fatty acids are a key component of good gut health,” said the study’s lead investigator, Hariom Yadav, Ph.D., assistant professor of molecular medicine at Wake Forest School of Medicine. “People with diabetes, obesity, autoimmune disorders and cancers frequently have fewer short-chain fatty acids. Increasing them may be helpful in maintaining or even restoring a normal gut environment, and hopefully, improving health.”
