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 is back to help us dissect the latest political news that’s fit to print:
Mr. President: Fire Rosenstein, then Mueller Was it your understanding that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein put Robert Mueller in place as special counsel to investigate alleged collusion between Trump and Russians to “interfere” with the 2016 elections? And that he did that because Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from being able to lead such an investigation? Mine too! So what happened? This is from the letter from Rosenstein to Mueller authorizing Mueller to lead the investigation:
“[T]o ensure a full and thorough investigation of the Russian government’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election, I hereby order as follows:
(a) Robert S. Mueller III is appointed to serve as Special Counsel for the United States Department of Justice.
(b) The Special Counsel is authorized to conduct the investigation defined by then-FBI Director James B. Comey in testimony before the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence on March 20, 2017, including:
(i) any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump; and
(ii) any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation; and
(iii) any other matters within the scope of 28 C.F.R. § 600.4(a).”
Rep. Marshall: Ocasio-Cortez’s message should be welcomed by the GOP for these reasons Just when we thought it was too good to be true that Democrats were still touting House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California as the face of their party, they’ve come back with an even greater gift for Republicans – democratic socialist congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, running as a Democrat for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives from New York City. Over the last several weeks we’ve seen a dramatic increase in discussion of socialism and what it actually means, sparked mostly by the Democrats onboarding of the 28-year-old Ocasio-Cortez after her surprise primary victory that made her a House candidate. Many conservatives get angry at the sight of Ocasio-Cortez on TV news programs. I welcome her – and the Republican Party should as well. We must appreciate the opportunity to contrast our free-market platform with the socialist ideas of a former bartender who has said she believes that “unemployment is low because everyone has two jobs.”
Trump sanctions on oil industry will ‘cripple’ Iran’s economy: report U.S. imposed sanctions on Iran’s oil industry will “cripple” the Middle Eastern country’s economy after they take effect in early November, according to a new report released Wednesday. Analysts with Oxford Economics say they expect the sanctions to send Iran’s economy into recession, predicting it will contract by 3.7 percent next year, “the worst performance in six years.” The economic sanctions were originally lifted by the Iran nuclear deal negotiated in 2015 during President Barack Obama’s administration. President Donald Trump withdrew from the pact in May, calling it inadequate and claiming it would not prevent Iran from making nuclear weapons. He then followed up earlier this month with his decision to reimpose economic sanctions on Iran. “As we continue applying maximum economic pressure on the Iranian regime, I remain open to reaching a more comprehensive deal that addresses the full range of the regime’s malign activities, including its ballistic missile program and its support for terrorism,” Trump said in announcing his actions.
HOUR 2 – I’d Rather Have Diabetes, Thank You
Widely Used Diabetes Drug Can Cause Flesh-Eating Genital Infection The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is warning doctors and patients that some widely used diabetes drugs may, in some rare cases, cause a flesh-eating bacterial infection of the genitals. The condition, known as Fournier’s gangrene, developed in a dozen patients shortly after they began taking the medicines between March 2013 and May 2018, the FDA said. The seven men and five women were all hospitalized and underwent surgery for the condition. One patient died. More cases may be uncovered once the risk is better understood, the agency said in a statement. The drugs covered by the warning include Johnson & Johnson’s Invokana, AstraZeneca Plc’s Farxiga and Eli Lilly & Co.’s Jardiance. Known as SGLT2 inhibitors, they were approved in 2013, 2013 and 2016, respectively. The drugs help the body lower blood-sugar levels via the kidneys, and excess sugar is excreted in a patient’s urine. Urinary tract infections are a known side effect.
Scientists Have Found Secret Tunnels Between The Skull And The Brain Did you know you have tiny tunnels in your head? That’s OK, no one else did either until recently! But that’s exactly what a team of medical researchers have just found in mice and humans – tiny channels that connect skull bone marrow to the lining of the brain. The research shows they may provide a direct route for immune cells to rush from the marrow into the brain in the event of damage. Previously, scientists had thought immune cells were transported via the bloodstream from other parts of the body to deal with brain inflammation following a stroke, injury, or brain disorder. This new discovery suggests these cells have had a shortcut all along. The tiny tunnels were unconvered when a team of researchers set out to learn whether immune cells delivered to the brain following a stroke or meningitis originated from the skull, or the larger of the two bones in the shin – the tibia. The specific immune cells they followed were neutrophils, the “first responders” of the immune squad. When something goes awry, these are among the first cells the body sends to the site to help mitigate whatever is causing the inflammation.
Question of The Day!
Hi Robert! I met you a couple weeks ago in Dearborn, MI. Good, good stuff! Thank you! I have a friend, a large man, who has had two knee replacements in the last couple of years, followed by a motorcycle accident causing a badly broken lower leg requiring surgery. In one of his hospital visits he contracted a staff infection. It is now “under control” but of course could flare up again at any time. Do you have suggestions for how he can heal completely? I appreciate any information you can give me.
Not Really Impressed….
NIH Comes Out Swinging On Opioid Abuse With Anticipated $40.4 Million To Research Chronic Pain The NIH is pulling out all the stops to make President Donald Trump’s Initiative to Stop Opioid Abuse and Reduce Drug Supply and Demand a reality. And older Americans are likely to benefit every bit as much as young people. Learning about fatal opioid overdoses changes prescribing behavior. That was the headline on an announcement today from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) outlining a study the nation’s medical research agency did to see if putting an individual face on the opioid epidemic could alter prescribers’ behavior. As it turns out, it did just that. Researchers first identified 170 people who had a fatal prescription opioid overdose over a year in one California county. They then located 861 clinicians who’d written at least one prescription to one of the deceased and sent them letters from the county’s medical examiner notifying the doctors of their patient’s overdose death, along with that patient’s name, address and age.
Where Do I Sign Up?
Researcher will pay you $300 to eat avocados to see if they aid weight loss Could a pear-shaped fruit help you not be pear-shaped? That is what a researcher thinks may be true of avocados. And he is paying people to eat them in an attempt to prove his theory that the popular edible can help people lose weight. Dr. Joan Sabaté, who directs the Center for Nutrition, Lifestyle and Disease Prevention at Loma Linda University in Southern California, is looking for 250 people to consume a moderate amount of avocado flesh, according to the university’s website. Sabaté told the site that LLU and three other American universities will evaluate the theory in a six-month trial, meaning that 1,000 people will take part in the experiment. Avocados contain the highest fat content of any fruit, but Sabaté believes other components of avocados, which are the main ingredient the guacamole, could have fat-fighting properties
