Post Date: 2018-06-11 09:31:44 by Tooconservative
Why the DOJ wont defend the health care law in Texas v. United States. Unless you have been vacationing in a far away galaxy, you will have heard the ululations of Obamacare apologists enraged by the Trump administrations refusal to defend the health care law against a 20-state lawsuit challenging its constitutionality.Obamacare advocates claim that the failure to defend the ACA in Texas v. United States is an unprecedented dereliction of duty by the Department of Justice (DOJ). This is hysterical nonsense. It is indeed unusual, but the DOJ is by no means obligated to defend a law deemed unconstitutional by the President, as Attorney General Sessions explains in his ...

This morning our yard was abuzz with a chorus of songbirds. Summer tanagers, vireos, orioles, indigo buntings, goldfinches and cardinals had joined the resident bluebirds, woodpeckers, Virginia creepers, nuthatches, titmice and sapsuckers to complete the ensemble. Many had come in flocks, which was unusual before a few years ago. We live in a remote area, far from any cell phone towers. As these towers have become more ubiquitous the flocks of birds coming here increase. Others in urban areas say their songbirds have disappeared altogether. Many urban people are also reporting a massive decline in insect populations. With the discovery of the Schumann ...
The 10 professions with the most psychopaths
Post Date: 2018-05-17 05:44:21 by Deckard
Business Insider by Lindsay Dodgson Psychopaths are difficult to spot most of the time. Theyre not the Jack the Ripper caricatures you see in films or read about in books. Often, psychopaths appear normal, which makes them hard to identify. In the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, or DSM-5, someone with a psychopathic personality type is defined as having an inflated, grandiose sense of themself, and a knack for manipulating other people. But a diagnosis is rarely simple. One thing psychopaths tend to have in common is the careers they go for. For example, youre likely to find a lot of them in leadership ...
Smoking weed before massive heart attack saved Kevin Smith's life, director says
Post Date: 2018-05-03 11:19:47 by Deckard
For better or worse, Kevin Smith is known today as one of Hollywoods most prominent potheads. But while the directors habit may have had a less-than-desirable result on his recent films, at least one doctor told him smoking weed may have saved his life during a massive heart attack earlier this year. The New Jersey native stopped by the Late Show on Tuesday night, where he discussed the February health scare that resulted from a 100 percent blockage of his left anterior descending artery. The condition is known as the widowmaker due to its high mortality rate, which Smith, 47, said kills 80 percent of people afflicted by it. Marijuana, however, helped ...

Banned Since 1985, MDMA could soon be approved as a PTSD treatment.The emotional hangover from Nigel McCourry's seven months in Iraq as a U.S. Marine plagued him for years, keeping him up at nights, troubling his sleep with recurring nightmares, and isolating him from friends and family. After he was diagnosed with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in 2011, McCourry tried "weekly talk therapy and more drugs than I could keep account of," none of which helped much. The one thing that worked for McCourry, leading to "huge breakthroughs" that immediately resolved his sleep issues, was psychotherapy facilitated by MDMA, which was banned by the Drug Enforcement ...

FDA Approves Use Of Marijuana Derived CBD Drug For Epilepsy On Eve Of 4-20
Post Date: 2018-04-25 09:31:21 by Deckard
An eerie bit of news has graced Friday's 4/20 celebrations across America. (Four twenty is code for smoking marijuana, making the day 4/20 special in cannabis culture.) On Thursday, the FDA, notorious for approving fatal opioids and other drugs and attacking plants and homeopathics bestowed its blessing on a new epilepsy drug that contains actual plant-based cannabidiol (CBD). That is to say an FDA advisory committee made the recommendation for approval of Epidiolex the first marijuana-derived drug to get such a green light. Epidiolex is a breakthrough in the field of epilepsy, said Justin Gover, CEO of GW Pharmaceuticals PLC, the UK-based ...
Uranus Smells Like Rotten Eggs
Post Date: 2018-04-24 11:54:01 by Willie Green
There's a lot of really smelly stuff wafting around Uranus. The clouds in Uranus' upper atmosphere are composed largely of hydrogen sulfide, the molecule that makes rotten eggs so stinky, a new study suggests. "If an unfortunate human were ever to descend through Uranus' clouds, they would be met with very unpleasant and odiferous conditions," study lead author Patrick Irwin, of Oxford University in England, said in a statement. But that wayward pioneer would have bigger problems, he added: "Suffocation and exposure in the negative 200 degrees Celsius [minus 328 degrees Fahrenheit] atmosphere, made of mostly hydrogen, helium, and methane, would take its toll ...

Bob Dole's erectile dysfunction ads, paid for by Pfizer, sent American men to their doctors in droves.Twenty years ago today, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved orally administered sildenafil citrate tablets for the treatment of erectile dysfunction in the U.S., under the brand name Viagra. The little blue pill, the most popular use of which was discovered by accident, helped change how prescription drugs are marketed, and shifted public perceptions of what drugs can and should do. It was also an instant hit. Within two months of going to market, "approximately one million prescriptions had been written in the U.S. alone," according to a 2005 paper in the ...

Raw milk is trending for some reason—so are nasty, drug-resistant infections
Post Date: 2018-02-11 17:27:52 by Tooconservative
Theres been something of a renaissance of raw milk in recent years. And, not surprisingly, the dicey drink of bygone eras is also reviving disease outbreaks. In recent years, researchers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have noted that more states have made it legal to get raw (unpasteurized) milk and yearly outbreak numbers linked to unpasteurized dairy have quadrupled nationwide. Today, experts released an analysis of a 2016 multi-drug resistant infection outbreak in Colorado that highlights the growing problem of raw milk consumptionand the challenges that lie ahead. Specifically, the milk in the outbreak was consumed legally while health authorities were ...
President Trump Said in 2015 that He Never Had Flu Shots and Never Had the Flu. Meanwhile Everyone Else Being Pressured to Get These Shots [Full Thread]

By B.N. Frank My deepest condolences to all who have lost loved ones because of The Flu. Because there is so much illness right now in the U.S, there has been much debate whether flu shots are effective, not effective, or even harmful. President Trump is known for saying many colorful things. What many havent heard is what he said about flu shots in 2015. The flu shot is the greatest scam in medical history, created by Big Pharma to make money off vulnerable people and make them sick. Ive never had one. And thus far Ive never had the flu. I dont like the idea of injecting bad stuff into your body. And thats basically what they do. ...
Woman nurses kids through the flu, then is diagnosed herself, only to die 3 days later – all of them were vaccinated

Natural News by Lance D Johnson The flu shot is not just a medical hoax, with a purported 30 percent efficacy rate; its also a kind of biological weapon that spreads disease and causes further complications that lead to death. A 37-year-old mother thought she was doing the right thing when she had her two kids vaccinated with this years flu shot. After all, advertisements, news stations, pharmacies and doctors all promote the same thing: Flu shots are the best prevention. No one informed this caring mother that the live attenuated virus in the flu vaccine readily reverts to infectious form after injection, causing flu and secondary infections. Consequentially, ...
Jeff Sessions Targets Marijuana Banking, Reignites Fears
Post Date: 2018-02-04 14:40:44 by Gatlin
Attorney General Jeff Sessions hasnt launched any raids or prosecutions since he revoked the Cole Memo on Jan. 4, but hes created the same familiar chaos at the bank and that might be enough. Its been more than two weeks since Attorney General Jeff Sessions escalated the federal governments war on legal marijuana. Anger and resistance, speculation and anxiety, and some histrionics have filled the time since Sessions revoked the Cole Memo, an Obama-era Justice Department policy directive, interpreted as tacit acceptance for (state and local) law- abiding cannabis businesses. But since Sessionss announcement, the federal government hasnt followed ...

Gene Ransoms day was ruined within minutes of Attorney General Jeff Sessionss announcement that he was giving federal prosecutors more freedom to go after marijuana transactions in states that have legalized medical cannabis. Our phones just blew up, said Ransom, the chief executive of the Maryland State Medical Society. We must have had 400 physicians calling to ask us what this was going to mean. Sessionss Jan. 4 bombshell came just a month after Maryland launched its own medical marijuana program, further roiling a health-care community struggling with how or even whether to bring pot into mainstream practice.

Newsweek Hit Piece Calling Organic Food a 'Scam' Authored by Known Monsanto Propagandist

Monsanto, the megalithic corporation responsible for Agent Orange and for inundating the planet with noxious PCBs for years with full knowledge the horrific damage the substances cause to the planet and its inhabitants, finds itself in hot water, again, thanks to a poorly-delivered smear campaign against organic, healthy food that is, food growing from the ground unassisted by its chemical pesticides and herbicides. Just as many advocates of untreated food have suspected, Monsanto was caught red-handed disguising its own anti-organic propaganda dangerously misleading and false information warning of supposed damage wrought to the environment through ...
Vaccine Industry PANICS! Vaccinated Kids Keep Dying Of The Flu
Post Date: 2018-01-31 06:45:20 by Deckard
Is the vaccine industry in panic mode? They very well could be, especially after kids vaccinated against the flu keep dying of the influenza virus. Mike Adams, otherwise known as The Health Ranger on his YouTube channel recently theorized that the reason this flu season is so horrendous is because of the vaccine industry. And after gathering more information, it looks like he might be right. This years vaccine is only 10% effective, yet weve all heard we should still get the flu shot because it can lessen symptoms if one gets sick. But a few are speaking out against that unscientific claim, which even if youre all in for vaccines makes little ...
Why Shrooms Are Illegal: Study Shows Psychedelic Experiences Make You Resist Authoritarians
Post Date: 2018-01-29 07:13:05 by Deckard
According to a new study from the Psychedelic Research Group at Imperial College London, published in the journal Psychopharmacology, psychedelic mushrooms tend to make people more resistant to authority. They also found the psychedelic experience induced by these mushrooms also cause people to be more connected with nature. Our findings tentatively raise the possibility that given in this way, psilocybin may produce sustained changes in outlook and political perspective, here in the direction of increased nature relatedness and decreased authoritarianism, researchers Taylor Lyons and Robin L. Carhart-Harris write in the study. Experiments in the past have had similar results, ...

Jon Rappoport If you worked for a federal agency that was killing people at the rate of 100,000 a year, every year, like clockwork, and if you knew it, wouldnt you feel compelled to say or do something about it? At the FDA, which is, in fact, killing Americans at that rate, no one has ever felt the need to step forward and speak up. Lets shift the venue and ask the same question. If you were a medical reporter for a major media outlet in the US, and you knew the above fact, wouldnt you make it a priority to say something, write something, do something?
