Report: White House hoping the health-care bill tanks today [Update: Set to blame Ryan?]
Post Date: 2017-03-24 14:53:28 by Tooconservative
Just one source, but it makes sense. Do you really think Trump and Bannon want to spend another month repeating this nightmare in the Senate, and then maybe another month after that negotiating with a conference committee? senior WH aide, asked if decisive health care defeat today is best for Team Trump: "100%" John Harwood (@JohnJHarwood) March 24, 2017 An added benefit if the bill goes down would be the leverage it provides the White House to start shoving Paul Ryan towards the exit as Speaker. While at Breitbart, Bannon was allegedly known to refer to Ryan as the enemy and hoped to have him deposed by spring 2016. Hes worked with Ryan since the ...
Mike Lee: Senate parliamentarian told me it's possible to push harder on repealing Obamacare regulations
Post Date: 2017-03-22 19:43:56 by Tooconservative
Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, said on Wednesday that the Senate parliamentarian has told him that it may be possible for Republicans to push harder on repealing Obamacare's regulations than the current House bill, which contradicts the assertion by House leadership that the legislation goes after Obamacare as aggressively as possible under Senate rules. "What I understood her to be saying is that there's no reason why an Obamacare repeal bill necessarily could not have provisions repealing the health insurance regulations," Lee said in an interview with the Washington Examiner, relating a conversation with parliamentarian Elizabeth MacDonough about reconciliation he had on ...
Rand Paul: ‘Easily 35 No Votes’ Against Paul Ryan’s Obamacare 2.0, ‘I Would Predict They Pull Bill, Start Over’
Post Date: 2017-03-22 16:27:42 by Tooconservative
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) told Breitbart News exclusively on Tuesday afternoon that he expects House Speaker Paul Ryan will be forced to pull the American Health Care Act (AHCA) before a scheduled Thursday vote because Ryan will not get the votes to pass the legislation. The AHCA has been dubbed Obamacare Lite by Paul a leading conservative critic of the plan and by other conservatives as RyanCare, RINO-Care, and Obamacare 2.0, since the bill does not actually fully repeal Obamacare and keeps many of the main structures that the now-former President Barack Obama installed in the healthcare system. It has come under ...
Morning Consult: Public support for the AHCA is beginning to tank
Post Date: 2017-03-22 16:17:50 by Tooconservative
The repeal and replacement of Obamacare is off to a rocky start to put it mildly. Between the OMB estimates of the cost and impact on the number of people with coverage (even if that remains in dispute) and the constant rumormongering surfacing in the press, even some who were previously supporting the idea seemed to be wavering. A new set of numbers coming from Morning Consult tells the story and the GOP seems to be setting themselves up with a tough row to hoe if this thing actually makes it to the presidents desk. A strong plurality of voters think congressional Republicans are moving too quickly to overhaul the nations health care system, according to a new Morning ...

Abandon ship: [4 major] Conservative groups turn on House GOP’s ObamaCare bill

Heritage Action and the Club for Growth and Americans for Prosperity and FreedomWorks are all thumbs down? Who said conservatives dont stand up to Trump anymore? Heres the statement from Heritage, which Matt Welch describes as the in-house think tank for the Trump administration. In many ways, the House Republican proposal released last night not only accepts the flawed progressive premises of Obamacare but expands upon them. Ronald Reagan once said, Governments view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it. The AHCA does all three. ...
Melania Trump Urges Americans To Stop Trusting Big Pharma

First Lady Melania Trump has credited the healing and nurturing properties of nature for her good health, and urged Americans to stop leaning so heavily on Big Pharma to provide magic potions to cure their ills. Taking a tour of a childrens hospital in Washington D.C., Melania Trump said she wanted to remind the American people about the gift of nature and how nature and the outdoors, so bountiful in our great country, can contribute to the healing process. The First Lady said, I am a passionate believer in integrating and interpreting natures elements into our daily lives to create a warm, nurturing and positive environment. I believe ...
Tea Party moving from defense to offense [on repealing 0bamaCare]

As liberal activists embrace Tea Party tactics to try to rescue the Affordable Care Act, Tea Party organizations are preparing to reclaim the protest mantle by planning a "day of action" to encourage Congress to repeal Obamacare. "Tea Party tactics were excellent when there were not Republican majorities in Congress and when the president was opposed to all conservative policies," Freedom Works stated in acknowledging that a new approach is necessary now that the GOP controls the executive and legislative branches. "Rallies by themselves are a defensive tactic used by those without significant leverage in the government," Freedom Works CEO Adam Brandon ...

Post Date: 2017-02-03 11:06:54 by Deckard
When the Drug Enforcement Administration formally backed off plans last year to ban the herb kratom, the agency announced it would accept input from the public to help determine how to proceed. Over the next six weeks, the proposed rule change received 23,232 comments, almost all of which opposed the move toward prohibition, according to new data released Thursday. The study, conducted by nonprofit groups the American Kratom Association and the American Coalition of Free Citizens, found that 99.1 percent of all comments submitted expressed support for keeping kratom legal. Just 113 comments were in favor of the DEAs proposal.Kratom is an herb made from the leaves of Mitragyna ...

Chaos in the White House fuels discord amongst the experts. In the several days since psychologist John Gartner posted a petition on Facebook declaring that Donald Trump must be removed from office because he has a serious mental illness that renders him psychologically incapable of competently discharging the duties of President of the United States, nearly 12,000 psychologists, psychiatrists, and other mental health professionals have signed their agreement. Although the petition has no legal power and it may be the beneficiary of timing more than tacticsit was posted mere hours before Trump issued a highly contentious executive order banning immigrants from some Muslim ...

Strong evidence linking Aluminium and Alzheimer’s
Post Date: 2016-12-19 09:48:40 by cranky
There has been a strong link between human exposure to aluminium and the incidence of Alzheimers disease for half a century or more. However, without definite proof, there is still no consensus in the scientific community about the role of this known neurotoxin in this devastating brain disease. The latest research from my group, published in the Journal of Trace Elements in Medicine and Biology, makes this link even more compelling. In my view, the findings are unequivocal in their confirmation of a role for aluminium in some if not all Alzheimers disease. At the very least, these new results should encourage everyone and even those who have steadfastly maintained that ...

(NaturalNews) Researchers at Imperial College London recently went to great lengths to obtain psilocybin and use it in clinical tests to investigate its medicinal value for treating severe depression. It took 32 months for the research team to meet all the licensing requirements to even conduct the trial. They also commented that the price per dose was literally 50 times more than what it should have cost in a "sane world."Twelve participants with severe depression signed up to receive high doses of the banned psilocybin. They were given capsules orally and monitored closely.The medicinal properties of psilocybin were quickly realized. In just one week, all the participants ...

Aspartame now being marketed as natural sweetener, name changed to 'AminoSweet'
Post Date: 2016-11-22 20:35:38 by U don't know me
Aspartame now being marketed as natural sweetener, name changed to 'AminoSweet' Tuesday, November 22, 2016 by: Ethan A. Huff, staff writer (NaturalNews) The world's most toxic artificial sweetener is undergoing a major identity overhaul in an effort by its manufacturer to cover up the chemical's sordid history, as well as to keep people buying it. "AminoSweet," in case you see it on food labels, is really just plain-old aspartame, the same synthetic sweetening agent that's repeatedly been linked to causing seizures and organ damage, among other physical harm. Since its initial discovery in 1965 by G.D. Searle Pharmaceuticals, aspartame has been the subject ...
No evidence of aloe vera found in the aloe vera at Wal-Mart, CVS, Target

The aloe vera gel many Americans buy to soothe damaged skin contains no evidence of aloe vera at all.Samples of store-brand aloe gel purchased at national retailers Wal-Mart, Target and CVS showed no indication of the plant in various lab tests. The products all listed aloe barbadensis leaf juice - another name for aloe vera - as either the No. 1 ingredient or No. 2 after water.There's no watchdog assuring that aloe products are what they say they are. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration doesn't approve cosmetics before they're sold and has never levied a fine for selling fake aloe. That means suppliers are on an honor system, even as the total U.S. market for aloe products, ...

Why Some Farts Smell Worse Than Others

If youre prone to producing smelly bottom burps, its actually a sign of good health. Gastroenterologist Dr Myron Brand said the smelly odour is not bad, its just a function of what youre eating and what your bacteria is doing inside your gastrointestinal tract. Some people may have strong-smelling farts, while others are more toned down - and this is completely normal. Everyone is different, Dr Brand told Thrillist. Foul smell just means the carbohydrates you consume are being malabsorbed - its fermented. The end product of fermentation in our gastrointestinal tract is gas - carbon dioxide, hydrogen, or methane. ...
Seattle plans to open safe spaces for addicts to use heroin — and that's smart [Full Thread]

(Photo by John Moore/Getty Images) Nearly every major city across the United States has been affected by a wave of heroin abuse and overdoses in recent years, but none have responded with the radical but proven approach that Seattle-area officials now plan to take. A county-level heroin task force recommended Thursday that the city and surrounding municipalities open places where addicts can inject or smoke opioids without fear of arrest and with access to clean needles and treatment.After unveiling a 99-page report on the subject, which outlined the myriad public health benefits from similar experiments elsewhere in the world, King County Executive Dow Constantine told ...
Medical Marijuana Replaces More Dangerous Drugs

A new study adds to the evidence that letting patients use cannabis saves lives by reducing consumption of pharmaceuticals.Insys Therapeutics, the Arizona-based pharmaceutical company that recently became the biggest financial supporter of the campaign against marijuana legalization in that state, makes an oral spray that delivers the opioid painkiller fentanyl and plans to market another one that contains dronabinol, a synthetic version of THC. Insys says it gave $500,000 to the main group opposing Arizona's legalization initiative because the measure "fails to protect the safety of Arizona's citizens, and particularly its children."

As Marijuana Prohibition Winds Down, What Will Control Freaks Ban Next? [Full Thread]
Post Date: 2016-09-13 20:08:30 by Hondo68
It isnt enough to end just one restrictive law, we have to disempower the prohibitionists. Marijuana "does not meet the criteria for currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States, there is a lack of accepted safety for its use under medical supervision, and it has a high potential for abuse," the Drug Enforcement Administration sniffed in an August public announcement refusing to consider easing restrictions on the stuff. The announcement seemed to deliberately miss the point since a majority of Americans favor legalizing marijuana for fun, not just medicine. That the feds are fighting a rear-guard action on the issue is apparent from the fact that half ...
Big PharmaÂ’s Patents on Kratom Alkaloids Expose Real Reason DEA is Banning this Plant

Washington, D.C. As the Free Thought Project reported last week, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) just announced they will ban the popular pain relief supplement kratom by placing it on the Schedule 1 list, which denotes no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse the most restrictive classification under the federal Controlled Substances Act. This move to ban yet another highly beneficial plant by the DEA has been met with heavy backlash and multiple petitions. The backlash is entirely justified as this plant has many amazing benefits including a potential cure for opioid addiction. A notice of intent to classify kratom was ...

These aren't your filthy hippies and stoners looking for an excuse to toke (not that there's anything wrong with that!): The American Legion is calling for the federal government to reclassify marijuana to acknowledge its potential benefits as a medical treatment. As Jacob Sullum previously noted, The Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) is stubbornly refusing to change the federal classification of marijuana as a drug that has no "accepted medical use" until science proves them wrong. Fortunately they're easing off on the Catch-22 situation that has resulted in this classification making it extremely difficult for researchers to perform the very scientific testing that could ...
