A New Bill In Congress Would Prevent Any Baby With A Heartbeat From Being Aborted

0

by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:

A new bill being considered by the U.S. House of Representatives would make it illegal for an abortion to be performed on any fetus with a detectable heartbeat.  This bill is known as “the Heartbeat Protection Act”, and it would be a massive victory for the pro-life movement in this country if it becomes law.  So far about 170 members of the House are behind this bill, but it will need more votes than that to pass.  And even if it passes the House, it would still have to get through the Senate, and if just a few RINOS in the Senate vote against the bill that would be enough to block it.

But even though the road ahead looks challenging, that is not an excuse to quit fighting.  Ultimately, polls have shown that most Americans would support this kind of a law

A new bill in Congress, HR490, would make the presence of that heartbeat the standard for outlawing an abortion.

Some 170 House members back the Heartbeat Protection Act, which had its first hearing on Capitol Hill Wednesday. Polling by the Barna Group shows 69 percent of Americans back the bill.

“That’s 86 percent of Republicans, 61 percent of Independents, and yes, even a Democrat majority by 55 percent,” said Faith2Action president Janet Porter, the originator of the first heartbeat bill, at a Capitol Hill news conference.

If this bill gets through Congress and it is signed into law by President Trump, it will almost certainly be challenged in court.

In the end, it is likely that a case such as this would make it all the way to the Supreme Court, and some conservatives are already welcoming such an outcome.  As President Trump appoints more conservative justices, a case such as this could set an important new precedent.

Personally, I am so glad that pro-life members of the House of Representatives are doing something to move the ball forward.  Since Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973, nearly 60 million children have been murdered in America’s abortion mills, and if we continue to kill babies on an industrial scale there is no future for our country.

Over the past few days, pro-life activists have been posting some rather startling statistics about abortion on social media

That statistic about Down syndrome babies in the U.K. is very sad.  In some countries, the percentage of Down syndrome babies that are aborted is actually closer to 100 percent.

But just because you have Down syndrome that doesn’t mean that your life is not worth living.  This is a point that actor Frank Stephens made very powerfully last week as he testified to Congress

Last week, actor and Down syndrome advocate Frank Stephens powerfully testified before the House Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education Committee on Appropriations about the value of life — specifically the value of the lives of those born with Down syndrome.

“I am a man with Down syndrome, and my life is worth living,” he emphatically stated during a committee hearing on Wednesday.

Japanese Doctor Who Studied Longevity (And Lived To 105) Reveals The Secrets To A Long Life

0

by Amanda Froelich True Activist:

Dr. Hinohara spent his life studying longevity and lived to 105 years of age. Here are some of his tips to living a long, healthy life.

If you desire to live a long, healthy life, you won’t want to miss what Japanese doctor Shigeaki Hinohara touted as the “secrets” to living a long life. The physician would know, as he helped build the foundations of Japanese medicine, studied longevity and even lived to the ripe old age of 105.

Hinohara, who died on July 18, 2017, was the chairman emeritus of St. Luke’s International University and the honorary president of St. Luke’s International Hospital. In an interview with Judit Kawaguchi of Japan Times on the topic of longevity, he recommended several basic guidelines for longevity. One of them is to retire later on in life.

1) Retire later in life

Because people are living much longer — particularly in Japan, Dr. Hinohara claims they should be retiring later, as well. The physician took his own advice to heart. Months before he died — even at the age of 105-years-old, Hinohara continued to treat patients, reports The Independent. He kept an appointment book with space for five more years and worked up to 18 hours a day!

“He believed that life is all about contribution, so he had this incredible drive to help people, to wake up early in the morning and do something wonderful for other people. This is what was driving him and what kept him living,” Kawaguchi told the BBC. “He always had today’s goals, tomorrow’s, and the next five years.”

2) Have more fun

Other guidelines recommended by Hinohara include worrying less about eating well or getting enough sleep and spending more time having fun. “We all remember how as children, when we were having fun, we often forgot to eat or sleep. I believe that we can keep that attitude as adults, too. It’s best not to tire the body with too many rules such as lunchtime and bedtime,” said Hinohara.

3) Eat right, stay trim

The Japanese researcher also advised against being overweight. His own regime was quite strict: “For breakfast I drink coffee, a glass of milk, and some orange juice with a tablespoon of olive oil in it,” said Hinohara. “Olive oil is great for the arteries and keeps my skin healthy. Lunch is milk and a few cookies, or nothing when I am too busy to eat. I never get hungry because I focus on my work. Dinner is veggies, a bit of fish and rice, and, twice a week, 100 grams of lean meat.”

4) Question everything — including your doctor’s advice

Even though Hinohara was a doctor, he told patients to do their own research and listen to their own intuitions. “When a doctor recommends you take a test or have some surgery, ask whether the doctor would suggest that his or her spouse or children go through such a procedure,” he said. “Contrary to popular belief, doctors can’t cure everyone. So why cause unnecessary pain with surgery? I think music and animal therapy can help more than most doctors imagine.”

Shock: Black Death Patients Are ESCAPING The Hospital Over Fear Of Needles As Officials Worry Plague Could Spread

by Alex Thomas, SHTFPlan:

Patients in Madagascar who are currently suffering from the plague have “escaped” multiple hospitals in the area over fears of needles and hospital treatment as a whole, according to a shocking report in The Sun newspaper.

Security guards with at least one hospital have been tasked with forcefully keeping black death patients in the hospital as well as following the strict safety procedures set up in an attempt to quell the outbreak.

The Sun reported:

Officials at the hospital say the main reason why patients run away is that they are scared of needles and don’t have much experience of hospitals.

Jean Benoit Manhes, the deputy representative of Unicef, told the Irish Times: “Some escaped because they’re afraid of needles. People here are not used to the hospital.

“The problem of plague is not just a medical response. You can have hospitals but if people don’t come it isn’t enough.”

Such incidents have prompted fears that the plague could spread even further with each confirmed case requiring 20 people have been in contact with to be treated as a precaution.

Malagasy people have also been told not to carry out their traditional burial tradition of Famidihana which involves digging up their dead relatives every seven years.

It means ‘turning the bones’ and sees families cleaning the remains, rewrapping them and reburying them while other family members perform a special dance.

The African island’s government has told citizens to pause the tradition for fear the plague bacteria is still active in the corpses and can be spread to the living.

News of infected patients running away from hospitals comes on the heels of reports that it is only a matter of time before the plague becomes resistant to the antibiotics that are currently being used to treat the outbreak.

Mac Slavo recently reported for SHTFplan:

The newest warning about the outbreak of the airborne pneumonic plague, or black death, in Madagascar has been released. Officials warn that it’s inevitable that this bacterial infection that’s infected over 2000 people will become resistant to antibiotics.

The only way to treat a person who has contracted the plague is with antibiotics. But experts now warn that because they are being used so much to treat the infection, antibiotics resistance is inevitable and making this disease much more terrifying.

Once the bacteria is resistant, the Madagascar healthcare system will be overwhelmed, and the disease will have control of the nation.

Vitamin C found to sharply reduce cardiovascular mortality in latest study

0

by Lance D Johnson, Natural News:

Vitamin C, also known as L-ascorbic acid, is one of the most abundant antioxidants. It’s necessary for cellular health and is easy to include in the diet/lifestyle. The recommended dietary allowance for vitamin C is 90 mg/day for men and 75 mg/day for women. Vitamin C is a water soluble vitamin that quickly passes through the body; therefore, intake should be frequent. A clean vitamin C supplement keeps levels up, assisting the immune system. Vitamin C is highest in super foods such as camu camu, acerola, and amalaki berry, and is also prevalent in mangoes, kiwi, strawberries, pineapples, peppers or citrus fruits.

Vitamin C is necessary for the synthesis of the following: L-carnitine for mitochondria protection, collagen for connective tissue strength, and some neurotransmitters for brain health. Vitamin C strengthens the thymus gland, empowering T-cells to help fight infections. Intravenous vitamin C helps the body eliminate cancer.

Vitamin C could benefit more body systems than previously thought

As an antioxidant, Vitamin C’s role in the human body is vast and often overlooked. Since a diet high in fruits and vegetables is associated with a healthy heart and strong cardiovascular system, a team of researchers from Spain and the U.S. wanted to investigate a vital nutrient that is often overlooked for its role in improving cardiovascular health. The team of researchers took a closer look how vitamin C could reduce cardiovascular mortality. Since cardiovascular disease is related to oxidative stress, vitamin C could be of great benefit for the mere fact it is an antioxidant and plays a role in protecting the cellular energy process.

The researchers initially found a promising inverse association with cardiovascular risk factors and dietary vitamin C intake, indicated by ascorbic acid plasma levels. While vitamin C seemed to be of tremendous benefit to the heart, previous studies have had a hard time adjusting for confounders such as fiber intake, which typically coincides with vitamin C intake. In their research, supplementation of vitamin C beyond recommended levels didn’t seem to exhibit any greater preventative effect on cardiovascular mortality rates. High does supplementation with vitamin C (500 to 2000 mg/day) gave conflicting results. In two analyses, supplementation was associated with reduced blood pressure and improved endothelial function. However, in observational and interventional studies, supplementation of vitamin C actually coincided with slightly higher cardiovascular mortality.

Vitamin C protects against cardiovascular mortality

The newest analysis of vitamin C accounted for fiber intake using Cox proportional hazard models and validated the diets of all the participants using a semi-quantitative food frequency questionnaire. The researchers questioned 13,421 participants in the Seguimiento Universidad de Navarra (University of Navarra follow-up) (SUN) cohort every two years for a mean time of 11 years. Cardiovascular events were confirmed by physicians and broken down into two categories. Incident CVD included incident-fatal or non-fatal myocardial infarction, all strokes, or death due to any cardiovascular event. Alternately, death due to cardiovascular causes was differentiated as CVM. On the final results, the researchers revealed:

When vitamin C was adjusted for total fiber intake using the residuals method, we found a significant inverse association with CVM (HR (95{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} confidence interval (CI)) for the third tertile compared to the first tertile, 0.30 (0.12–0.72), but not with CVD in the fully adjusted model.

Spices for Long Term Storage

by Upper Midwesterner, Survival Blog:

This isn’t going to be just another food storage article. For excellent advice on that subject, start by exploring  the SurvivalBlog archives and the LDS web site. But there’s a related topic that I felt was worthy of discussion.

It wasn’t that long ago that .22 rimfire ammo disappeared from shelves, and conversations about PMAGs in stock sounded pretty similar to claims about Yeti and the Loch Ness Monster – utterances viewed by most listeners with great skepticism. We live in a ‘just in time’-supplied world, where almost anything can quickly affect the price – or the availability – of many products we’re used to seeing on our store’s shelves.

Wikileaks Founder Julian Assange: “There’s Something Wrong With Hillary Clinton”

by Tim Brown, Freedom Outpost:

After Hillary Clinton tore into Wikileaks and its founder, Julian Assange, saying that they were a “subsidiary of Russian intelligence,” Assange fought back via the social media platform Twitter and responded, “There’s something wrong with Hillary Clinton.”

“There’s something wrong with Hillary Clinton,” Assange tweeted on Sunday.

“It is not just her constant lying,” he added.  “It is not just that she throws off menacing glares and seethes thwarted entitlement.”

“Watch closely,” he continued.  “Something much darker rides along with it. A cold creepiness rarely seen.”

Yeah, it’s called being a sociopath.

Clinton appeared on an Australian TV program and said Assange was a “nihilistic opportunist who does the bidding of a dictator.”

She also claimed that “WikiLeaks is unfortunately now practically a fully owned subsidiary of Russian intelligence.”

Of course, she did so with zero evidence, but lying in this manner is not uncommon for a Clinton.

However, Assange reminded her that Wikileaks had done pieces on Russia and Clinton happened to be right in the mix.

“WikiLeaks has a pristine record for accuracy,” Assange tweeted.  “HRC is not a credible person. The primary cause of her downfall was her own Machiavellian scheme to elevate Mr. Trump (“Pied Piper”).”

“Our last Russian expose was three weeks ago,” he added and linked to a Wikileaks article.

When it comes to credibility, Assange and Wikileaks are light years away from Hillary Clinton.

Indeed, Clinton has a public record of lying, far more than Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah.

Following the Watergate investigation, she was terminated by Jerry Zeifman, chief counsel of the House Judiciary Committee following the Watergate inquiry and added that he “would not — could not recommend her for any further positions.”

While leftist Snopes and The Washington Post say this is not true, the reality is that Zeifman said so in a 2008 interview.

The CATO Institute reports:

Washington Post fact checker Glenn Kessler gives a maximum Four Pinocchios to the claim that Hillary Clinton was fired during the Watergate inquiry, which has gotten a lot of circulation on social media. He makes a detailed case that there is no evidence for such a firing. However, along the way he does note some unflattering aspects of her tenure there:

In neither of his books does Zeifman say he fired Clinton. But in 2008, a reporter named Dan Calabrese wrote an article that claimed that “when the investigation was over, Zeifman fired Hillary from the committee staff and refused to give her a letter of recommendation.” The article quoted Zeifman as saying: “She was a liar. She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.”…

In 1999, nine years before the Calabrese interview, Zeifman told the Scripps-Howard news agency: “If I had the power to fire her, I would have fired her.” In a 2008 interview on “The Neal Boortz Show,” Zeifman was asked directly whether he fired her. His answer: “Well, let me put it this way. I terminated her, along with some other staff members who were — we no longer needed, and advised her that I would not — could not recommend her for any further positions.”

So it’s pretty clear that Jerry Zeifman, chief counsel of the House Judiciary Committee during the Watergate inquiry, had a low opinion of the young Yale Law graduate Hillary Rodham. But because she reported to the chief counsel of the impeachment inquiry, who was hired separately by the committee and did not report to Zeifman, Zeifman had no authority over her. He simply didn’t hire her for the permanent committee staff after the impeachment inquiry ended.

Kessler also notes that Clinton failed the D.C. bar exam in that period. She never retook the exam (passing the Arkansas exam instead) and concealed her failure even from her closest friends until her autobiography in 2003.

5 REASONS YOU SHOULD CONSIDER ADDING CHIA SEEDS TO YOUR FOOD SUPPLY

by Mac Slavo, SHTF Plan:

We’ve all heard of chia seeds, but they are spoken and written about sparingly when it comes to adding them to your prepper supply. But there are several incredibly good reasons to consider storing chia seeds for when the SHTF.

The Mayans loved chia seeds so much that “chia” is the ancient Mayan word for “strength.” So if you’re looking for a food item that will provide you with energy, nutrition, and the strength to make it through a catastrophe, look no further than chia seeds.  Grown in Mexico and South America, chia seeds are said to have been used by both the Mayan and Aztec cultures for supernatural powers.

The Establishment’s Worst Fear Is You Reaching Your Potential [VIDEO]

by Jeff Berwick, The Dollar Vigilante:

It’s been said that the human body is a temple—an adage which, if true, could have profound implications for how we treat others and especially ourselves.

Putting aside for a moment any personal beliefs about gods, afterlife, or spirituality, we can say with certitude that our bodies are most definitely temples—for our consciousness.

I suppose this isn’t a very controversial statement, since all I’m saying is that your body houses your consciousness and, thus, the quality, cleanliness, and health of your body will likely impact the health of your mind.

Japan Leads the Way: No Vaccine Mandates and No MMR Vaccine = Healthier Children

from Collective Evolution:

  • The Facts:This article was written By Kristina Kristen, Guest Writer, for Children’s Health Defense, posted here with permission.
  • Reflect On:How much do pharmaceutical companies really care about our health? Why is important information on vaccines never acknowledged and countered by the mainstream?

In the United States, many legislators and public health officials are busy trying to make vaccines de facto compulsory—either by removing parental/personal choice given by existing vaccine exemptions or by imposing undue quarantines and fines on those who do not comply with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) vaccine edicts. Officials in California are seeking to override medical opinion about fitness for vaccination, while those in New York are mandating the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine for 6-12-month-old infants for whom its safety and effectiveness “have not been established.”

Prevent asthma attacks with the vitamin E found in nuts

0

by Isabelle Z, Natural News:

 If you suffer from asthma, you’ll be all too familiar with the scary feeling that sets in when you’re gripped by an attack. It may not last long, but it’s unpleasant enough to drive many people to use inhalers despite their risks. Now, however, a new study published in the Journal of Allergy & Clinical Immunology points to a potential way to prevent asthma attacks that is not only safe – it’s also delicious!

After observing epidemiologic data that showed people who consumed a high amount of dietary vitamin E were less prone to suffering asthma and allergic diseases, researchers from the University of North Carolina School of Medicine decided to investigate further.

However, the alpha isoform of vitamin E, alpha-tocopherol, which is found in most Vitamin E supplements, is linked to higher risk of hemorrhagic stroke. They decided to focus their efforts on researching the gamma-tocopherol form of vitamin E instead, which can be found in pecans, walnuts, peanuts and seed oils like sesame.

Gamma-tocopherol also another advantage: While both forms of vitamin E have antioxidants, the gamma tocopherol also provides a unique anti-inflammatory effect, which is something the researchers believe ultimately made a difference in their study.

They divided participants randomly into one of two groups. One group was given a gamma-tocopherol supplement over the course of two weeks, while the other received a placebo. At the close of the two weeks, they were all told to cough up some sputum. They also participated in a lipopolysaccharide challenge in which they had to inhale a substance that leads to lung inflammation and then cough up even more sputum.

In the next phase of the cross-over study, the group who took the supplement during the first two weeks was then given a placebo for a two-week period following a three-week period in which they took nothing.

This showed the researchers that people who took the vitamin E supplement experienced less eosinophilic inflammation while they were doing so. Moreover, they had lower levels of the proteins known as mucins, which play a role in making mucus sticky. People with asthma tend to have higher levels of mucins.

Fewer mucins mean that mucus is less sticky, which makes it easier for those with asthma to clear it out of their bodies. It also means there won’t be as much pro-inflammatory mucus remaining inside their lungs.

Next, the researchers would like to expand the study over a longer period of time and determine whether it is safe in adults who are not in optimum health. They’d also like to look out for any unanticipated effects.

What you should eat – and avoid – if you have asthma

If you suffer from asthma and don’t have a nut allergy, you could well derive benefits from eating walnuts and pecans that extend beyond asthma. Nuts can also boost your immunity, and they are rich in healthy fats.
