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:
Trump calls on Congress to support ‘Right to Try’: What you need to know about the drug law President Donald Trump touched on many subjects during his State of the Union address on Tuesday, including a push for Congress to pass “Right to Try” for terminally ill patients. “Patients with terminal conditions should have access to experimental treatments that could potentially save their lives,” Trump said. “It is time for the Congress to give these wonderful Americans the ‘Right to Try.’” The “Right to Try” bill allows terminally ill patients to request access to experimental medicines that have passed Phase 1 of the Food and Drug Administration approval process.
Trump to declassify surveillance memo, sources say – as Pelosi seeks Nunes
ouster President Trump is expected to swiftly declassify a controversial memo on purported surveillance abuses, sources tell Fox News, even as Democrats raise objections that edits were made to the document since it was approved for release by a key committee. Those objections fueled a new round of partisan recriminations on Thursday, with House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi firing off a letter to Speaker Paul Ryan demanding the chairman of that committee, Republican Devin Nunes, be removed. “Chairman Nunes’ deliberately dishonest actions make him unfit to serve as Chairman, and he must be immediately removed from this position,” she wrote.
Democrats boo Trump after he announces immigration policy Democrats booed President Donald Trump, with at least one member of Congress shouting “that’s not true,” when the president outlined his proposed cuts to legal immigration during Tuesday night’s State of the Union address. After detailing the first two “pillars” of his immigration proposal, which involve offering a path to citizenship for roughly 1.8 million noncitizen immigrants and building a massive wall along the southern border of the US, coupled with increased funding for border security, Trump spoke of his highly controversial cuts to legal immigration.
“All of these things — learning to control the government, limiting the amount of money it can take from us, protecting our country through a strong defense — all of these things revolve around one word, and that word is ‘freedom.'” – Remarks at the Annual Convention of the National Religious Broadcasters, February 4, 1985
Hour 2 – More Bad News For The Flu Shot!
2018 Flu update: Flu shot effectiveness is lower than originally thought, new study shows New research published today suggests that this year’s flu vaccine is even less effective than originally thought, and that people who got the shot are vulnerable to getting sick anyway. Researchers have known that this year’s prevalent virus is the influenza A virus H3N2, but a new Canadian report suggests that the H3N2 component of the flu vaccine is 17 percent effective at preventing infection, according to Stat, a website that reports on health care issues. The Canadian report was published today in the online journalEurosurveillance, a European journal on infectious diseases and epidemiology. The report was based on data from four Canadian provinces.
Franklin Township family believes Tamiflu led to teen’s suicide The 16-year-old boy was diagnosed with the flu last Thursday, and like many flu patients, he was prescribed Tamiflu. “We started it right in the car, get it in him and get him started,” said Ray. Less than 24 hours later, Ray said she texted the teen but did not get a response. “I knew something was wrong. My husband came home and found him in the house,” said Ray. Ray’s husband, Brad, discovered Harp had committed suicide in the garage. “Just thinking the whole way here what’s different?” Brad Ray wondered. “He’s been the same. What did we do differently? And it clicked, he just started new medicine.” The couple told FOX59 the teen had never expressed suicidal thoughts before and had no signs of depression. The only change, they say, had been he started taking Tamiflu.
Special Guest Chris Barr!
Not A Doc Chris Barr joins us to talk about American Heart Month!
The perfect gift this Valentine’s Day is the gift of heart health. Along with Valentine’s Day, February marks American Heart Month, a great time to commit to a healthy lifestyle and make small changes that can lead to a lifetime of heart health.
Flu, Heart Attacks and You: What’s the Link? This year’s flu season is one of the worst in decades. Thousands of Americans have been diagnosed with flu, and many have suffered severe complications, including death. In fact, since Oct. 1, 2017, more than 80,000 cases have been confirmed in the U.S. alone by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention – and the season has not yet peaked. While the flu shot is vital for the prevention of outbreaks, this year’s vaccination does not appear to be a great match, and this has contributed to the widespread outbreaks. The predominant strain is H3N2, and it’s particularly virulent – it produces severe symptoms. The telltale symptoms of the flu include high fever, cough, runny nose, sore throat and body aches.
Consumer Reports: Eating Super Bowl-sized meal can lead to heart attack danger For most
Americans, Super Bowl time also means chow down time. But if you suffer from certain medical issues, overeating can cause serious problems. Consumer Reports explains. Buffets, endless supplies of chips and dips, junk food, beer and more overindulging on Super Bowl Sunday can be half the fun. But Consumer Reports says it’s best to avoid overeating if you have underlying heart disease, hypertension or high cholesterol.
