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:
In Supreme Court petition, Merck argues that FDA power shields against liability Years after suing drug giant Merck & Co. for serious injuries allegedly caused by osteoporosis drug Fosamax, more than 500 plaintiffs will have to wait to hear the U.S. Solicitor General’s take on their case, and the outcome could reverberate across the pharmaceutical industry. That’s because Merck’s bid at the U.S. Supreme Court seeks to reestablish a federal preemption defense it argues has been chipped away in courts over the years. The drug giant says the current case is the “ideal vehicle in which to lay down a legal marker for when a failure-to-warn claim is properly preempted in the branded drug context, and thus revive the preemption defense.”
Pope Francis, of all people, moans move to Jerusalem You’d think the pope at least might be in
President Donald Trump’s court on the whole Tel Aviv-versus-Jerusalemthing — the announced move of the U.S. Embassy from the former to the latter and the ensuing recognition of the latter as Israel’s true capital. After all, the guy’s the voice of the Catholic Church. If anyone might rise above lowly human politics to side with the spiritual on this matter, it’d be Pope Francis, yes? Think again.
Jim Jordan’s masterful Judiciary performance Show me the application, dude — that was the underlying demand from Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan to FBI director Chris Wray during House Judiciary hearing to determine a little bit more about Peter Strozk, the just-fired Robert Mueller attack dog. Er, make that unbiased special counsel team investigator — right? Hold the phone on that one. The water’s getting deep and murky. Jordan’s got the goods on that. Or at least, a theory that’s rocking, to say the least.
Senator Al Franken Resigning Amid Sexual Harassment Allegations Senator Al Franken of
Minnesota announced Thursday he would resign “in the coming weeks” from the Senate after his support among Democrats crumbled, becoming the highest-profile casualty in the growing list of lawmakers felled by charges of sexual harassment or indiscretions. “I of all people am aware that there is some irony in the fact that I am leaving while a man who has bragged on tape about his history of sexual assault sits in the Oval Office, and a man who has repeatedly preyed on young girls campaigns for the Senate with the full support of his party,” Mr. Franken said.
New Bill Sends ‘Sanctuary City’ Mayors To Federal Prison, Heck Ya! After the verdict of the Kate Steinle murder case came out last week and her killer was acquitted in a San Fransisco Court, Americans were outraged. One Republican member of Congress decided it was time to introduce a bill which would put an end to sanctuary cities and keep Americans safe. Many people are aware of the horrific story of Kate Steinle’s murder by now. An illegal immigrant named Jose Garcia Zarate, who was deported a total of five times prior to murdering Steinle, openly admitted to killing her in 2015. Zarate is no stranger to law enforcement. He has been convicted of seven felonies and has been deported five times. He was released by officials in San Fransisco right before he shot and killed Steinle while she was walking with her father. There was an ICE detainer on him at the time.
Hour 2 – Alzheimer’s Continues to Worsen – What To Do?
Alzheimer’s Cases to Double by 2060: Report As the baby boomer population ages, the number of
Americans with Alzheimer’s disease will double by 2060, researchers report. The study findings, which show cases of Alzheimer’s and mild cognitive impairment going from 6 million this year to 15 million in four decades, highlight the need to better identify people with a brain-related disease, and to slow its progression.
Canola oil linked to worsened memory and learning ability in Alzheimer’s Canola oil is one of the most widely consumed vegetable oils in the world, yet surprisingly little is known about its effects on health. Now, a new study published online December 7 in the journal Scientific Reports by researchers at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University (LKSOM) associates the consumption of canola oil in the diet with worsened memory, worsened learning ability and weight gain in mice which model Alzheimer’s disease. The study is the first to suggest that canola oil is more harmful than healthful for the brain. “Canola oil is appealing because it is less expensive than other vegetable oils, and it is advertised as being healthy,” explained Domenico Praticò, MD, Professor in the Departments of Pharmacology and Microbiology and Director of the Alzheimer’s Center at LKSOM, as well as senior investigator on the study. “Very few studies, however, have examined that claim, especially in terms of the brain.”

Question of The Day!
You spoke recently on supplements and nutrition before removing mercury amalgams. My amalgams have been removed; however, in the spring, I have scheduled an appointment (with a Biological dentist) to have four root canal teeth removed due to bone deterioration. Plus, the doctor suspects cavitations in two extraction sites. Recovery and bone rebuilding will take about 3 months. What do you suggest for the months ahead, during and after? What CBD type and amount, does your wife take for her dental issue? Sorry for the long note, but thank you for your reply.
Now HERE’s A Solution To The Opioid Epidemic!
Cannabis Company Offers Brilliant Solution to Opioid Crisis: Trade Your Drugs for
Weed As the opioid crisis continues to plague the country, one cannabis company in Oregon is proposing a new solution. Kaya Holdings Inc. (KAYS), the first publicly traded company to open and operate a medical cannabis dispensary, is planning to set up an opioid-for-weed swap program where addicts can trade in their pills for the plant. According to a press release, Kaya Holdings CEO Craig Frank said:
“We decided to step up and do our part after President Trump announced the war on the opioid epidemic.”
He went on to cite recent preliminary research suggesting that cannabis is linked to a reduction in opioid dependence and death in states where it is legal. Frank also referenced President Trump’s recent declaration of emergency.
