It’s Colder Because It’s Warmer, Camel Urine, and HPVs

The article below by journalist, Jim O’Neill, may make some folks a bit squeamish, so if that’s the case, pass this one by.  Nevertheless, it is loaded with information and truth, some of which is quite frightening.  Jim has given his permission to repost his article.

In my last article (“The USA in Libya: Battle of Derne”) I should have perhaps made mention of the fact that among the “colorful characters” who took part in that battle was Oliver Hazard Perry, who commanded the “USS Nautilus.” Perry would later go on to gain fame during the “War of 1812,” and his statement “We have met the enemy and they are ours” became something of a cultural catchphrase. Cartoonist Walt Kelly famously turned Perry’s comment on its head in 1971 with “We have met the enemy and he is us.”

Be that as it may, this article concerns itself (albeit briefly) with a few of the many lies put out by the Obama Administration – I will wrap up the article with a couple of cautionary public health announcements.

First a glance at a few of the more outrageous liberal spins. If you thought that the global cooling trend would have the global warming alarmists scurrying for cover you would be wrong. As many of you know, we are now being told (with a straight face I might add) that the world is getting colder because it is getting warmer.

The UK’s “Daily Mail” warns us that “Global warming could be triggering increasingly cold winters in some parts of the world….” Yikes! It was bad enough when it was just getting hotter because of AGW (Anthropocentric Global Warming), but now it’s making things colder as well! Alas, it appears we are stuck between Scylla and Charybdis.

Mind you, these “scientific facts” are brought to us courtesy of the same folks who told us that ISIS has nothing to do with Islam, al Qaeda is on the run, that if you like your health care you can keep your health care, and the attacks in Benghazi were the result of a barely watchable and barely watched video.  Caveat emptor people.

Now for the public health concerns. We can thank Walid Shoebat for bringing to our attention the fact that the widespread use of camel products in Saudi Arabia is almost certainly responsible for the spread of MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome). This includes the practices of shampooing with, and drinking, camel urine.

Since 2012, more than 1,000 cases of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) have been reported and almost 400 deaths. Infection has been confirmed in the US, France, the UK and other countries, usually after travel to Saudi Arabia, where the virus was first identified.

The only reason for the virus to be shrouded in mystery is political correctness.

Walid Shoebat “MERS Is Surging Again In…Saudi Arabia: The Cover-Ups Behind Muslims Drinking Camel Urine

I concur with Mr. Shoebat. In our politically correct Brave New World of relativistic multiculturalism — where ISIS savages stand on an equal footing with Doctors Without Borders — who will dare point out that someone’s cultural norm poses an unsanitary health risk?

Speaking of unsanitary health risks, there is another health risk that appears to be an inexplicable puzzle to health officials – and this health risk is occurring in the USA.

I am speaking of the marked increase in oral and rectal cancer among young American adults. “Forbes” ran an article last fall titled “For Reasons Unknown, Colon And Rectal Cancer Rates Are Rising In People Under 50.” I think I can help point researchers in a profitable direction.

What I am about to briefly discuss does not make for pleasant “table talk,” so if you feel you might be offended by topics of a sexual nature then by all means feel free to stop reading my article at this point.

As homosexuals and the homosexual lifestyle have become increasing accepted in our culture so have sexual practices first popularized and propagated in the homosexual community – i.e. oral and anal sex. So widespread are these practices in the young adult heterosexual community these days that although I would not say that they are by any means standard sexual fare, they are far from being the rarity they once were – especially oral sex (due in no small part to the example set by former President Bill “It’s Not Really Sex” Clinton).

Is there a cause-and-effect relationship between oral/anal sex, some HPV (Human PapillomaVirus) strains, and the rise in cases of oral and anal cancer? I don’t know for sure one way or the other, but I suspect that there is indeed such a correlation. In any event, it is worth looking into — political correctness be damned.

According to Dr. Richard Watson:

HPV is now widely recognized as responsible for more than 95% of cervical cancers in women.

Today, cervical cancer is a pandemic disease worldwide, and the rapidly escalating transmission of HPV augurs even starker statistics for decades to come.

HPV is recognized to be the most frequently acquired sexually transmitted viral infection worldwide.

Whatever utility condoms may have in preventing transmission of other sexually transmitted diseases, they provide no proven protection against the transmission of HPV.

Richard A. Watson, MD “Human Papillomavirus: Confronting the Epidemic

The good news is that with early detection the prognosis for successfully treating HPV-related cancers in non-smoking patients is excellent. Also, doctors report efficacious results in fighting HPV (especially the virulent strains 16 and 18) using the vaccines Gardasil or Cervarix. I am well aware of how leery, if not downright hostile, many readers are regarding the use of vaccines, and I am not promoting their use, but perhaps some of you may wish to research the topic further and come to your own conclusions.

The bad news is that cases of oral and rectal cancer continue increasing year after year. It should be noted that, in any event, partaking in certain elements of the homosexual lifestyle can lead to a significant reduction in a person’s life expectancy (e.g. one report I read noted that “anal cancers are about 35 times more common in gay men than the general population”). Be advised that the last few paragraphs should not be taken as an oblique slur on homosexuality; they are meant simply as a word to the wise. An alert awareness of the above health concerns is in order.

Being politically correct and sticking our head in the sand over these matters can and will cost any number of lives. Do not expect the “it’s getting colder because it’s warmer” crowd to inform you about such things.

 

 

 

 

‘Queering Your Campus’ workshop calls pro-life movement ‘clinic terrorists’

safdaf

Campus Reform: Young feminists who recently attended the 11th annual National Young Feminist Leadership Conference (NYFLC) will return to their college campuses with a new rallying cry to combat pro-life “clinic terrorists.”

During the conference, hosted by the Feminist Majority Foundation, attendees could participate in a crash course on campus activism titled “Queering Your Campus.” According to NYFLC’s description of the workshop, students were taught how to organize on campus for gender-neutral restrooms and housing and foster “intersectional feminist activism.”

A flyer passed out during the workshop, and later obtained by Campus Reform, encouraged the young activists to “kick off [their] group meetings and amp up [their] next rally” using a variety of short chants including, but not limited to:

“Pro-life, that’s a lie/ You don’t care if women die!”

“Two, four, six, eight/ Separate church and state!”

“77 cents is not okay/We demand equal pay!”

drama

One of the proposed chants described individuals who oppose abortion as “clinic terrorists” and urged young women facing unexpected pregnancies to let young feminists on their campus know:

“Hey, hey! Ho, ho!/ Clinic terrorists have got to go!

“Whatever we wear, Wherever we go, Yes means yes, no means no! Pro-life men have got to go. When you get pregnant, let me know!”

Hey ho, what do you know - a pregnant man!

Hey ho, what do you know – a pregnant man!

In addition to the list of chants, conference-goers could take home stickers proclaiming “I [love] my local abortion provider” and purchase miniature finger puppets of historical female figures including Rosa Parks, Marie Curie, and Sojourner Truth.

Other workshops offered to attendees included “Reinventing Rosie: Reframing the Workforce for Women,” “Sex-positivity: Educate, Empower, Self-Define,” and “Keep Your Religion Off Our Bodies.” Climate change was also addressed with one breakout session titled “Ecofeminism: Activism to Create Climate Justice.”

The conference took place March 21-22 in Washington, D.C. On Monday, attendees took their activism to Capitol Hill for “Congressional Visit Day.”

Creation: Opossums help combat Lyme disease

North American opossumThe North American opossum with winter coat (Wikipedia)

The opossum (Didelphimorphia) is the largest order of marsupials in the Western Hemisphere, including 103 or more species. Commonly called possums, the word “opossum” is borrowed from the Virginia Algonquian (Powhatan) language and means “white dog” or “white animal”.

Most opossums have a plantigrade stance (feet flat on the ground) and the hind feet have an opposable digit with no claw. Like some monkeys, opossums have prehensile tails.

Female opossums have a pouch, called a marsupium. While the females do have a placenta, it is short-lived, simple in structure, and not fully functional. The young are therefore born at a very early stage and must find their way into the marsupium to hold on to and nurse from a teat.

Female opossums often give birth to very large numbers of young who are weaned between 70 and 125 days, when they detach from the teat and leave the pouch. The opossum lifespan is unusually short for a mammal of its size, usually only two to four years. Senescence is rapid.

When threatened or harmed, opossums will “play possum,” mimicking the appearance and smell of a sick or dead animal. This physiological response is involuntary, rather than a conscious act. The opossum’s lips are drawn back, the teeth are bared, saliva foams around the mouth, the eyes close or half-close, and a foul-smelling fluid is secreted from the anal glands. The stiff, curled opossum can be prodded, turned over, and even carried away without reaction, but the animal will typically regain consciousness after a period of between 40 minutes and 4 hours, a process that begins with slight twitching of the ears. In the case of baby opossums, however, the brain does not always react this way at the appropriate moment, and therefore they often fail to “play dead” when threatened.

These ungainly-looking animals with sharp teeth are actually quite remarkable.

Opossums have a remarkably robust immune system, and show partial or total immunity to the venom of rattlesnakes, cottonmouths, and other pit vipers. Opossums are about eight times less likely to carry rabies than wild dogs; only 1 in 800 opossums is infected with rabies.

Opossums are also mortal enemies of the tick that infects humans with the terrible Lyme disease.

John Ferro writes for the Poughkeepsie Journal, March 16, 2015, that opossums dine on ticks “like a vacuum dines on dust”:

The tiny adolescent ticks that carry Lyme disease bacteria are most active during the late spring months, typically May and even as early as April during warmer years.

But whereas these ticks can be found in large numbers on mice, shrews and chipmunks, they are eaten in large numbers by opossum.

Research led by scientists based at the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies in Millbrook placed different species into cages, covered them with ticks and waited for the biting arachnids to jump off.

The scientists then counted how many survived.

Opossums can eat or remove as much as 96 percent of the ticks that land on them.

Research also suggests the immune system of opossums is fairly effective at fighting off the disease. […]

Opossums are your friend and mine in the fight against Lyme.

Opossums are usually solitary and nomadic, staying in one area as long as food and water are easily available. As nocturnal animals, they favor dark, secure areas below ground or above. 

The Virginia opossum was once widely hunted and consumed in the United States.

So the next time you see an opossum, be thankful that it’s around, because where there’s opossum, ticks will be scarce!

They will have no fear of bad news

nofear

Blood Moons, EMP attacks, ISIS beheadings, Iran nukes, Obama, Republican betrayals, Yellowstone super volcano, Ebola, muslims in America, FEMA camps

We are a highly news-conscious group. I rarely go a day ignoring the news. Usually I turn on FoxNews before my first sip of coffee. Within 5 minutes I have seen one terrifying story after another before thinking about anything else, setting  me onto a desperate binge of searching out more of the story and spending the day seeking to alert everyone that the sky is falling.

Then the Holy Spirit put a spotlight on this verse, and subsequently the rest of the psalm. I immediately began to feel peace. My new morning routine is to make sure I read some of the Bible before allowing myself to see the news. The difference is amazing. 

Psalm 112 is worth the trouble to memorize, to “hide it in your heart.”  ~ TD


Psalm 112 (NIV)

 

Praise the Lord.

Blessed are those who fear the Lord,
who find great delight in his commands.

Their children will be mighty in the land;
the generation of the upright will be blessed.
Wealth and riches are in their houses,
and their righteousness endures forever.

Even in darkness light dawns for the upright,
for those who are gracious and compassionate and righteous.

Good will come to those who are generous and lend freely, who conduct their affairs with justice.

Surely the righteous will never be shaken;
they will be remembered forever.
They will have no fear of bad news;
their hearts are steadfast, trusting in the Lord.
Their hearts are secure, they will have no fear;
in the end they will look in triumph on their foes.

They have freely scattered their gifts to the poor,
their righteousness endures forever;
their hornc will be lifted high in honor.

The wicked will see and be vexed,
they will gnash their teeth and waste away;
the longings of the wicked will come to nothing.


So who will have no fear of bad news? 

“…those who fear the Lord
who find great delight in his commands.” 

Parable of the lost sheep

Parable of the lost sheep

Jesus came to seek and save the lost. He went to the ordinary people, with all their sins and blemishes; with all the usual sins. He healed them, but He rejected the self-righteous religious specialists. So what was the difference? The screwed up people knew they were screwed up, and feared the Lord. The super religious thought they had it so correct that they did not fear the Lord. 

There is only one kind of righteousness that actually counts, the righteousness we are clothed in through faith in Jesus Christ.

Let’s all make sure we qualify.

Why is Christianity Today Defending Racist Abortion Activist Margaret Sanger?

SANGER 2

Christianity Today, founded by none other than Billy Graham, is not only the name of a popular magazine/online news source for evangelicals, it’s a phrase that makes one wonder: “What is Christianity today?” I would suggest, in too many ways, it’s largely disconnected from the Christ who inspired it.

“I do not mean to excuse Sanger for holding these views, but I do want to give the charge of ‘eugenicist’ a more complete background,” writes Stone as she chooses to give a selective background of the inarguably racist, elitist and anti-Christian worldview of one of the leading members of the American Eugenics Society. (If she wanted a more complete background, she could easily have watched Maafa21 and gotten a thorough perspective on the mother of Planned Parenthood.) Instead, she proudly tweeted: “I am @amyjuliabecker’s blog today, defending #MargaretSanger and talking about how #birthcontrol saves lives.” (Thanks to SaynSumthn blog for screen grabbing the tweet!) Stone has since removed the tweet and later claimed she was never trying to defend Margaret Sanger.

STONE-TWEETS-1

Her twitter responses further illuminated a cluelessness about the central figure in her article, stating in several different tweets that: “I believe I did not accurately estimate how great a distraction the Sanger example would be. My primary concern is global women’s health not defending Margaret Sanger…In her early days, she was motivated by compassion for the least of these.”

Nice try. From Sanger’s early days (she established her first “clinic” in 1916) to her dying days (in 1966), her eugenic views about birth control and human life were despicable. Here are just a few Sanger quotes (from her own writings) that span the entire spectrum of her public activism:

  • “Organized charity itself is the symptom of a malignant social disease…Instead of decreasing and aiming to eliminate the stocks [of people] that are most detrimental to the future of the race and the world, it tends to render them to a menacing degree dominant.” (Pivot of Civilization, 1917, Chapter 5, “Cruelty of Charity”)
  • “Birth control itself, often denounced as a violation of natural law, is nothing more or less than the facilitation of the process of weeding out the unfit, of preventing the birth of defectives or of those who will become defective.” (Women And The New Race, 1920, Chapter 18)
  • “We who advocate Birth Control, on the other hand, lay all our emphasis upon stopping not only the reproduction of the unfit but upon stopping all reproduction when there is not economic means of providing proper care…We hold that the world is already overpopulated.” (Birth Control and Racial Betterment, Birth Control Review, February 1919, page 11)
  • “…apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is already tainted…to apportion farm lands and homesteads for these segregated persons where they would be…for the period of their entire lives…the whole dysgenic population would have its choice of segregation or sterilization.” (Plan For Peace, Birth Control Review, April 1932, Vol 26, Number 4)
  • “I think the greatest sin in the world is bringing children in the world—that have disease from their parents that have no chance in the world to be a human being practically. Delinquents, prisoners, all sorts of things just marked when they’re born. That to me is the greatest sin.” (1957 video interview with Mike Wallace)

Granted, Stone somewhat alludes to Sanger’s eugenic views, but then excuses them because other “medical professionals” held the same ones. Well, they were just as wrong. From Sanger’s first public moments to the end of her life, her repugnant views never changed…just the semantics. After World War II, for instance, it wasn’t as popular to talk about forced sterilizations in light of the American Eugenics export of “racial hygiene theory” and the Holocaust that was based and implemented on its pseudoscientific lies. So Sanger suggested “voluntary” sterilizations of humans who were “unfit” to reproduce.

I find that certain liberals love their anecdotes but have such an aversion to history. It seems to be all about feelings. It’s all about the emotional devoid of the evidential.

I just returned from speaking on a panel at the United Nations, “Living Cooperation: Sexual Rights and Religious Rights at the UN”, which was part of a 2-week long conference for the Commission on the Status of Women (#CSW59). The panel consisted of 6 speakers. I joined 2 others from C-Fam (Center for Family and Human Rights) who shared a pro-life/pro-family worldview. Three other speakers (SisterSong, Muslims for Progressive Values, and International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission), and the moderator shared a pro-abortion, pro-redefined-family/LGBT worldview. The conversation was wonderfully respectful and allowed some great dialogue. The interesting commonality among those who advocated for abortion and LGBT “rights” was that feelings were the basis of truth…not biological facts, not history, not statistics…just the emotional.

Monica Simpson, the ever-affable Executive Director of SisterSong, made the common claim about abortion reducing maternal mortality using Georgia as an example (giving rates but not actual numbers). Just to clarify, in 2007, 548 women sadly died throughout the entire United States from pregnancy complications; there were over 1.2 million abortions. I responded to Simpson that the Maternal Mortality Rate (MMR) in America plummeted from 574.3 per 100,000 live births in 1917 to 26.1 per 100,000 live births in 1970 all without legalizing abortion (see infographic). It was medical advances like penicillin and sterilized medical equipment and environments and better healthcare that led to this drastic decline in deaths—not abortion and not contraception.

ABORTION-AND-MMR

Better healthcare for women before, during and after pregnancy is the solution–not cancer-causing oral contraceptives, bone-density reducing Depo Provera, and billion-dollar population-control organizations like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (promoted in her article) which believes in achieving a very eugenic “zero population growth” (because humans, in the pseudoscience of eugenics, are the scourge upon the earth…well, at least those deemed “less fit” to live). In this alarmist TED presentation that addresses the need to stop population growth to “save the planet” (see video here starting at 2:28), Bill Gates says: “First we got population. The world today has 6.8 billion people. That’s headed up to about 9 billion. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent.” How do vaccinations reduce population growth? How does better healthcare reduce population growth? Only efforts like sterilization, birth control and abortion prevent and/or eliminate reproduction. This may explain why the Gates Foundation gives millions of dollars to Planned Parenthood.

Perhaps Stone, like many other liberal evangelicals, is naïve about global “family planning” funding and that it is inseparable from abortion. Perhaps Stone would rather ignore the 320% risk increase of Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC) that women who use oral contraceptives (OC) face over those who don’t use OC (Louise Brinton, Ph.D., Branch Chief and Senior Investigator of the National Institutes of Health’s National Cancer Institute, was one of the lead researchers in this study that is ignored by her own employer). Perhaps Stone knows nothing of the clandestine and immoral Depo-Provera human experiments and how the injectable drug is aimed at primarily African countries. It is, by the way, the “birth control” choice of Melinda Gates’ efforts.

Stone uses old disputed data that, if one spent any time researching, would realize is a conjured stat from the Guttmacher Institute and the World Health Organization (WHO). She promotes the false narrative of 68,000 women dying from “unsafe” abortions, globally, as proof for the need for contraception. Guttmacher has revised this “stat” to 47,000 several years ago, although it doesn’t change the fact that the Planned Parenthood-funded organization cites the WHO as the source of the data, who then cites Guttmacher as the source of the data. Nice circular citation. She does realize, I hope, that abortion is always unsafe for at least one of the human beings involved and often for both mother and child (whether in a legal or an illegal abortion).

In fact, Stone then plugs a “study” done by Guttmacher (although her link goes nowhere, this is the study she’s regurgitating) that extols all of the alleged “benefits” of contraception with the typical unsubstantiated “stats” that the pro-abortion think tank is known for. The study is jointly done, by the way, by the UNFPA (formerly known as the United Nations Fund for Population Activities but now with the acronym-challenged name of United Nations Population Fund) which has been instrumentally involved in supporting and enabling China’s barbaric One-Child Policy. Contraception, here in the U.S., has not reduced our national unintended pregnancy rate. In 1995, according to the CDC, that rate was 49%. Twenty years later, even Guttmacher admits that the rate has only increased; it is 51% today. So with more access to contraception than ever before, we face more unintended pregnancies. And Guttmacher declared: “The truth is that behind virtually every abortion is an unintended pregnancy.” This while the million-dollar abortion activist organization weaves tall tales, like the study and deceptive “stats” Stone promoted in her article.

One would think that Stone, as a professing Christian, would do more to discover truth since it’s Truth that saves people lives, not birth control.

Americans have insurance but can’t afford to use it

obama-finger

Yahoo: Although more Americans have health insurance coverage, 25 percent of non-elderly Americans don’t have enough liquid assets to cover the deductible on their health insurance plan, according to a new report from the Kaiser Family Foundation.

The report finds that many consumers don’t have the cash on hand to cover the cost of a mid-range deductible or $1,200 for an individual or $2,400 per family. High deductible health plans require that consumers cover their health care costs out of pocket until they’ve met their deductible.

The goal of such plans is to keep costs down by encouraging consumers to consider the costs and benefits of health care before purchasing it. “It’s really up to the consumer with these plans to comparison shop and look for cost savings when making medical decisions,’ says Kevin Coleman of HealthPocket.com.

For consumers, that means negotiating for any non-emergency services and evaluating medical bills for potential errors. “The big challenge is when it’s about you or someone you love, you lack objectivity, which means you lack leverage,” says Sarah O’Leary, CEO of patient advocacy company Exhale Health.

High-deductible plans, especially those paired with a funded health savings account may be a good alternative for those that are healthy or have the financial means to cover the costs of a medical emergency. However, the KFF report finds that as deductibles creep beyond the scope of savings, consumers are likely to either put off care or rack up medical debt.

A Gallup poll released last December found that one in three Americans have put off treatment for themselves or a family member because of cost—the highest rate in the history of the poll. There may be good reason: A separate report released also released in December by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau found that about half of all debt that goes to collections agencies represents medical bills.

Such statistics suggest that while Obamacare has succeeded in expanding access to health insurance to most Americans, the law has much more work to do when it comes to the goal of making care affordable for everyday consumers.

Increasingly, consumers are turning to high deductible plans not because they’re the best option for their family, but because those are the plans with affordable premiums or the only type of plan offered by their employer. (Nearly one in five employers offers only a high-deductible plan to workers.) “High deductibles are going to continue to be a problem [for some consumers] until we can get costs under control or figure out how to get people to save more money,” says Barbara Gniewek, principal with PwC’s Human Resource Services practice.

Syphilis outbreak among West coast homosexuals leads to blindness

Joseph Serna reports for The Los Angeles Times that public health officials across the West Coast are urging medical professionals to look out for cases of ocular syphilis – a sexually transmitted disease that can cause blindness.

ocular syphilis

On March 5, 2015, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health issued an advisory for primary and eye-care providers to look out for symptoms associated with ocular syphilis, which is usually a complication of primary or secondary syphilis infections.

Two recent suspected cases in Los Angeles are added to the more than a dozen reported cases of ocular syphilis between Seattle and San Francisco, most of them among homosexual men. Some of the patients also are HIV positive, including six in San Francisco. In Seattle, two of the patients went blind.

In a statement, president of AIDS Healthcare Foundation Michael Weinstein calls for medical professionals to do more: “These new cases … highlight the importance of ongoing, regular check-ups for sexually active individuals who feel they may be at risk, particularly men who have sex with men.”

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, California’s syphilis rate is second in the country behind only Georgia. Los Angeles also had the highest number of primary and secondary cases of syphilis of any county in the U.S. in 2013, the CDC reported.

Meanwhile, the FDA’s decades-long ban on homosexual men as blood donors is opposed by the American Medical Association, despite the fact that according to the FDA, “gay men represent 61 percent of all new HIV infections in the U.S.” (ABC News)

Even worse, homosexuals are championing a “national gay blood drive.”
