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.

 

 

 

 

Admiral James A. “Ace” Lyons

4-Star Admiral Slams Obama: Muslim Brotherhood Infiltrated All Of Our National Security Agencies

Published on Jan 28, 2015

During a press conference on how to combat radical Islamic extremism, Admiral James A. “Ace” Lyons (U.S. Navy, Ret.), former Commander-in-Chief, U.S. Pacific Fleet, stated that under the leadership of Barack Obama the Muslim Brotherhood have infiltrated all of the National Security Agencies of the United States. Furthermore, Lyons said that Obama is deliberately unilaterally disarming the military and spoke to the need for the new GOP controlled congress and Military leaders to stand up to the administration and uphold their oaths.


VA Official Paid $288K In ‘Relocation Payments’ To Move 140 Miles

th

DailyCaller: The director of the Philadelphia VA regional benefits office was paid $288,000 in “relocation payments” to move the 140 miles from Washington, D.C. to her new home last year.

Diana Rubens was tapped last June to take over the Philadelphia regional benefits office, which is one of many VA hospitals and benefits offices currently being investigated over benefits claims.

Rubens, who previously served as the D.C.-based deputy undersecretary for field operations, where she oversaw 57 regional offices, was brought in to help fix the embattled Philadelphia facility.

A breakdown of Rubens’ “relocation payments” was not immediately available, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer, but a VA spokesman said that there was nothing inappropriate with the spending.

Federal regulations allow for the reimbursement of relocation expenses including the “costs of house-hunting, moving, terminating leases, and a per-diem rate for meals and temporary housing for an employee and his or her family,” the spokesman said.

But that hefty repayment is nearly 160 percent of what Rubens earned in base pay all of last year, raising questions over what exactly that money could have gone towards. Rubens was paid more than $181,000 in 2014, according to the website FedSmith.com, which maintains a database of federal employee compensation.

“The government shouldn’t be in the business of doling out hundreds of thousands in cash to extremely well-compensated executives just to move less than three hours down the road,” Florida Rep. Jeff Miller, the chairman of the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, told the Inquirer.

“For VA to pay such an outrageous amount in relocation expenses at a time when the department is continually telling Congress and taxpayers it needs more money raises questions about VA’s commitment to fiscal responsibility, transparency and true reform.”

Rubens has been mentioned before in articles criticizing other money she’s been paid by the VA. According to the Center for Investigative Reporting, in 2011, she received a bonus of more than $23,000 even though patient backlogs — one area Rubens was in charge of managing — increased by 300,000.

The Washington Examiner reported last year that Rubens received more than $97,000 in bonuses between 2007 and 2011 even though the average time to process veterans’ claims doubled to 325 days on her watch. The ratio of backlogged cases nearly doubled as well, from 37 percent in 2009 to 71 percent in 2013.

WND EXCLUSIVE

OBAMA’S ‘JIHAD AGAINST JEWS’ SPILLS ISRAEL’S NUKE SECRETS

White House declassifies details of Middle East democracy’s defenses

by BOB UNRUH

In a move blasted by commentators as part of President Obama’s “jihad against Jews,” the White House has abruptly declassified details of Israel’s nuclear program.

According to Israel National News, the Obama administration declassified a Department of Defense top-secret document with details of Israel’s assets, “a highly covert topic that Israel has never formally announced to avoid a regional nuclear arms race.”

The report said until now, the U.S. has respected that effort by remaining silent.

“But by publishing the declassified document from 1987, the U.S. reportedly breached the silent agreement to keep quiet on Israel’s nuclear powers for the first time ever, detailing the nuclear program in great depth,” the report said.

It openly questioned, “Obama revenge for Netanyahu’s Congress talk,” and other commentators were more direct.

At Shoebat.com, started by a former Muslim terrorist turned Christian, was the blunt headline “Obama’s evil revenge on Netanyahu continues.”

Pamela Geller, on her Atlas Shrugs blog, called it “Obama’s jihad against the Jews.”

“Obama is sick, sick with Jew-hatred – unbalanced, unhinged, a danger to this this country, our allies, the world. Israel’s nuclear program, whatever it may be, is purely existential insurance. If they have a nuclear weapon, they have had it for 50 years and have never used it, despite the decades-long Muslim wars against the Jews,” she wrote.

“Israel has shared its secrets with the U.S. for decades. They never imagined a jihadist in the White House…”

Obama administration tracking Muslim candidates for military, Pentagon positions

Special to WorldTribune.com

WASHINGTON — The administration of President Barack Obama has been identifying Muslims in the military in an effort to encourage their presence.

Officials said the Defense Department has been keeping records and tracking Muslims. They said the administration sought to attract Muslims both to the military and to the Pentagon.

Deputy Secretary of Defense Robert Work on May 22.  /Glenn Fawcett/Office of the Secretary of Defense

“Our nation and our entire military family remain stronger because of
the service and sacrifice of people of all faiths, including the thousands
of patriotic Muslim Americans who have served and still serve in this long
period of war,” Deputy Defense Secretary Robert Work said last week.

The U.S. military currently has 4,500 uniformed Muslims, the Pentagon said on
July 3. It was not clear how the Pentagon identified the Muslims. The department
has not given statistics on members of other religious faiths.

In 2009, a U.S. Army Maj. Nidal Hasan, shouting “God is great,”
opened fire and killed 13 of his colleagues. Later, authorities acknowledged
that Hasan, a psychiatrist, was linked to Al Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula.

Critics have accused the administration of promoting Islam as the
preferential faith in the United States. Over the last year, a senior
adviser to the Homeland Security Department, Mohamed Elibiary, issued a
statement that said the U.S. Constitution was “Islamically compliant” and
that a Muslim caliphate was “inevitable.”

“I said America was an Islamic country not a Muslim country,” Elibiary
said in a Twitter post on June 30.

On July 3, Work attended the annual Pentagon ceremony of Iftar, or the evening dinner after a day-long fast that continues throughout the Muslim month of Ramadan. The Pentagon has been conducting the ceremony since 1998 in commemoration of Islam.

“Tonight is an opportunity for people of different faiths to come
together in the spirit of respect and tolerance to share the richness of our
beliefs and to enjoy the traditions of hospitality that are such an
important part of the Muslim community,” Work said.

The Pentagon, which hired Saudi-sponsored groups to raise awareness, has
reported the employment of 1,000 Muslims. Officials said they included
civilians and contractors for the Defense Department.

In his address, Work quoted Obama as saying that Ramadan reminded Americans of the principles of peace, justice and equality. The deputy
secretary also urged those at the Iftar to remember their responsibility to
the defense of the United States.

“Our country’s founders understood in a visceral way [that] the best way
to honor the place of faith in the lives of all Americans was to fight for
justice and equality as well as liberty and freedom,” Work said. “That is
exactly what the men and women both in and out of uniform who serve in the
Department of Defense do every single day. They are safeguarding the very
ideals deemed so precious by our founding fathers.”

Israel: Beware of Obama

By Michael Goodwin at the New York Post

US-POLITICS-OBAMA-FILM

First he comes for the banks and health care, uses the IRS to go after critics, politicizes the Justice Department, spies on journalists, tries to curb religious freedom, slashes the military, throws open the borders, doubles the debt and nationalizes the Internet.

He lies to the public, ignores the Constitution, inflames race relations and urges Latinos to punish Republican “enemies.” He abandons our ­allies, appeases tyrants, coddles ­adversaries and uses the Crusades as an excuse for inaction as Islamist terrorists slaughter their way across the Mideast.

Now he’s coming for Israel.

Barack Obama’s promise to transform America was too modest. He is transforming the whole world before our eyes. Do you see it yet?

Against the backdrop of the tsunami of trouble he has unleashed, Obama’s pledge to “reassess” America’s relationship with Israel cannot be taken lightly. Already paving the way for an Iranian nuke, he is hinting he’ll also let the other anti-Semites at Turtle Bay have their way. That could mean American support for punitive Security Council resolutions or for Palestinian statehood initiatives. It could mean both, or something worse.

Whatever form the punishment takes, it will aim to teach Bibi Netanyahu never again to upstage him. And to teach Israeli voters never again to elect somebody Obama doesn’t like.

Apologists and wishful thinkers, including some Jews, insist Obama real­izes that the special relationship between Israel and the United States must prevail and that allowing too much daylight between friends will encourage enemies.

Those people are slow learners, or, more dangerously, deny-ists.

If Obama’s six years in office teach us anything, it is that he is impervious to appeals to good sense. Quite the contrary. Even respectful suggestions from supporters that he behave in the traditions of American presidents fill him with angry determination to do it his way.

For Israel, the consequences will be intended. Those who make excuses for Obama’s policy failures — naive, bad advice, bad luck — have not come to grips with his dark impulses and deep-seated rage.

His visceral dislike for Netanyahu is genuine, but also serves as a convenient fig leaf for his visceral dislike of Israel. The fact that it’s personal with Netanyahu doesn’t explain six years of trying to bully Israelis into signing a suicide pact with Muslims bent on destroying them. Netanyahu’s only sin is that he puts his nation’s security first and refuses to knuckle ­under to Obama’s endless demands for unilateral concessions.

That refusal is now the excuse to act against Israel. Consider that, for all the upheaval around the world, the president rarely has a cross word for, let alone an open dispute with, any other foreign leader. He calls Great Britain’s David Cameron “bro” and praised Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood president, Mohammed Morsi, who had called Zionists, “the descendants of apes and pigs.”

Obama asked Vladimir Putin for patience, promising “more flexibility” after the 2012 election, a genuflection that earned him Russian aggression. His Asian pivot was a head fake, and China is exploiting the vacuum. None of those leaders has gotten the Netanyahu treatment, which included his being forced to use the White House back door on one trip, and the cold shoulder on another.

It is a clear and glaring double standard.

Most troubling is Obama’s bended-knee deference to Iran’s Supreme Leader, which has been repaid with “Death to America” and “Death to Israel” demonstrations in Tehran and expanded Iranian military action in other countries.

The courtship reached the height of absurdity last week, when Obama wished Iranians a happy Persian new year by equating Republican critics of his nuclear deal with the resistance of theocratic hard-liners, saying both “oppose a diplomatic solution.” That is a damnable slur given that a top American military official estimates that Iranian weapons, proxies and trainers killed 1,500 US soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. Who in their right mind would trust such an evil regime with a nuke?

Yet Netanyahu, the leader of our only reliable ally in the region, is ­repeatedly singled out for abuse. He alone is the target of an orchestrated attempt to defeat him at the polls, with Obama political operatives, funded in part by American taxpayers, working to elect his opponent.

They failed and Netanyahu prevailed because Israelis see him as their best bet to protect them. Their choice was wise, but they better buckle up because it’s Israel’s turn to face the wrath of Obama.

It’s just like old crimes

Reader Stephen Shapiro agrees that the bad old days of “Taxi Driver” are coming back to Gotham. “Only last night, my wife noted the same thing when walking up Broadway from the Theater District,” he writes. “The sidewalks were packed with illegal sellers of cheap trinkets and maybe stolen goods. Like it was decades ago.”

Step right up, NYers

P.T. Barnum is credited with saying, “There’s a sucker born every minute,” but the sentiment applies better to Albany than the circus. After all, who are the greater fools: ticket buyers who believe in sword swallowers and fire-eaters, or taxpayers who believe Gov. Cuomo and legislators will clean up corruption?

School vow is more blah-blah-blasio

There he goes again. Mayor de Blasio is making promises that make no sense and saying things he can’t possibly believe.

Putzie is so desperate to fend off state changes to his control of city schools that he is promising to apply crime-control techniques to educrats. “We’re going to hold every one of the principals to the same kinds of standards that our precinct commanders are held to via CompStat,” he declared.

That’s crazy talk for two reasons.

First, he and Chancellor Carmen Fariña say repeatedly they don’t like mainstream educational standards, especially a heavy use of standardized tests for evaluating students and teachers. Throw in their cutback of suspensions for disruptive students and their willful expansion of union power, and it’s hard to see on what basis they will measure principals’ performance.

Second, his reference to the Police Department as the gold standard of accountability would be valid — if de Blasio weren’t mayor. He is taking away so many enforcement tools from the NYPD that shootings and murder are soaring and evidence mounts that cops are under orders to ignore many quality-of-life crimes. With cops increasingly reduced to responding to crimes already committed, it is unclear what standards de Blasio is using to measure police commanders.

In truth, the similarity between the mayor’s approach to schools and crime reveals the danger of his incoherent philosophy. He’s a central planner of the Soviet model who doesn’t trust principals, teachers or cops to exercise their professional judgment. Ideological to the core, he’s imposing his political prejudices on their authority despite his lack of experience and training.

His decisions amount to micromanagement, not leadership, and represent the height of arrogance from a man who is late for virtually every public engagement.

Here’s an offer: He starts to show up on time, and we start to take him seriously.
