Tens of thousands of Vietnam vets, now in their sixties and early seventies, are carrying a dangerous parasite picked up in Asia called liver fluke. Many don't know it, but it's a ticking time bomb likely to kill them.
President Donald Trump just signed the VA Mission Act, which is supposed to help ailing vets get prompt care, including seeing a civilian doctor on Uncle Sam's tab. Don't count on it to help these vets.
The fine print…

Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro is really pushing to become a member of President Donald Trump’s administration. The role she allegedly has eyes on? Attorney General.
A former prosecutor and judge, Pirro has repeatedly told Trump’s aides and advisers over the past 18 months that she’s interested in taking over as the nation’s top law enforcement official, according to four people familiar with the conversations.
Trump has dangled the possibility of giving…

The Supreme Court ruled Monday in favor of a Colorado baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex couple, in one of the most closely watched cases of the term.
In a 7-2 decision, the justices set aside a Colorado court ruling against the baker -- while stopping short of deciding the broader issue of whether a business can refuse to serve gay and lesbian people. The opinion was penned by Justice Anthony Kennedy, who is often the…
'Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant'
The “Roseanne” show, the highest-rated and most-watched television series this season, was canceled Tuesday by ABC after its star, Rosanne Barr, tweeted an insult of Valerie Jarrett, Barack Obama’s confidante.
Barr wrote of Jarrett, the highly influential former senior adviser to Obama: “Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj.”
Barr apologized a short time later, via Twitter, stating: “I apologize to Valerie…

After a major campaign to impose controversial LGBTQ policies on the state’s 4-H youth program – including the admission of biological males into female restrooms, locker rooms, showers and overnight accommodations, as well as mandatory use of exotic transgender pronouns – those in charge of Iowa’s 4-H program now say they will not be adopting the transgender guidelines after all.
The dramatic turnaround comes after Christian public-interest law firm Liberty…

Only days after a poll revealed that many voters believe Sen. John McCain’s work is over, and that he should leave office now so a successor can be chosen by voters later this year, a political action committee has issued a call for him to do just that.
Officials with Americans for Legal Immigration PAC say the longtime senator and onetime presidential candidate should leave “instead of trying to hang on to his power and influence from his deathbed when it is clear he is no longer of…

Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton donned a Russian fur hat Sunday and took a very public swipe at President Donald J. Trump over accusations his campaign worked with Russia to influence the 2016 election outcome.
Speaking to Yale students at Class Day, she honoured a university tradition of donning unusual headware by displaying a traditional Russian ushanka hat as she delivered a public shot at her vanquisher.
“If you can’t beat them, join them,” Clinton quipped to…Continue

Arne Duncan, who served as secretary of education under former President Barack Obama, on Friday proposed that parents pull their children out of school until elected officials enact tougher gun-control laws, calling the idea "brilliant."
Duncan's tweet came hours after a school shooting in Santa Fe, Texas, left 10 people dead and another 10 wounded. The former education chief, who served in the role from 2009 through 2015, responded to a tweet from another…

In an apparent competition among American public school boards to see which sex-education program can be made the most graphic and politically correct, there’s likely a new leader.
In a stunning development, the Fairfax County School Board in Northern Virginia is considering teaching children there is no such thing as “biological sex” and also that “clergy” are not to be trusted if students have questions.
Within just the past few weeks, WND has reported on the…

Saturday on “AM Joy,” MSNBC terrorism analyst Malcolm Nance denounced the honor of military veterans who support President Donald Trump because of his prior comments regarding Senator John McCain (R-AZ) being a prisoner of war while he “hid” from the draft.
“These military people love him, alright? And I’m going to just come right out and say it — not honorable military veterans, because an honorable military veteran, if they had heard this story, would have said,…

California Congresswoman Maxine Waters doesn’t want to hear any talk about making America great, especially if it’s coming from a straight white man.
Waters went off the rails at a recent House debate when Pennsylvania Rep. Mike Kelly had the audacity to suggest the country needed to shift focus from what divides to what unites.
“We are trying to make sure we are making America great every day in every way and the best way to do that is to stop stalking…Continue

Bill would strengthen the power of organized labor.
BY: Haris Alic
Senator Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) filed legislation Wednesday that would significantly strengthen the power of organized labor.
Sanders, along with senators Cory Booker (D., N.J.), Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.), and Kirsten Gillibrand (D., N.Y.), among others, introduced the Workplace Democracy Act, which would make it easier for workers to unionize and enter into contractual negotiations with employers.

Adds $12,000 to cost of every home.

California will mandate solar panels on new homes out of concern for climate change, a policy that will raise prices in the most expensive home market in the country and does little to decrease the state's carbon footprint.
The five-member board of the California Energy Commission unanimously issued an edict Wednesday requiring all new homes to either be installed with solar panels or share solar power in a group…

Column: The Democratic message has been reduced to Russia and Stormy Daniels.

Ever since April 30, when the New York Times published a list of topics that special counsel Robert Mueller would like to ask President Trump about, cable news and the political press have focused exclusively on the two major legal matters in which the president is entangled.
First, of course, is Mueller's open-ended probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election. Second…

On the National Day of Prayer one year ago, President Trump issued an order to protect religious expression throughout the federal government, and a Family Research Council analysis has confirmed the positive impact, including allowing charities and other groups to provide up to 13.7 million people with health care or other services.
Now the president has gone a step further, signing a new executive order Thursday during the 2018 National Day of Prayer event at…

More than 60 conservative leaders, some more prominent than others, published a joint statement Tuesday arguing big tech companies need to do more to ensure people aren’t being unduly silenced for their ideological viewpoints.
“Social media censorship and online restriction of conservatives and their organizations have reached a crisis level,” the message reads. “Conservative leaders now have banded together to call for equal…

Our fully compromised, far-left media, who this week hyperventilated over the fact that Sean Hannity used President Donald Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen on a real estate matter, has for over a year gone out of its way to completely avoid the subjects of actual collusion.
They are instead still focused on non-collusion between Trump and Russia, and now their obsession with a porn star who recently composed a sketch of a man she claimed threatened her — who looks an…

As written before, this weekend’s “endorsement convention” was nothing more than a political stunt the Michigan Democrats used to hand pick and rig the system in favor of the party’s preferred candidates. MDP strong-armed the candidates into pledging not to continue to campaign and adhere to the choice made at this “endorsement convention.” Dillon went as far as threatening to blacklist the “loser” amongst the Democrat elite should they choose to forego the non-binding decision made by…Continue

As both an Airman in then West Germany and as a Soldier getting ready to go into Iraq, I trained quite an uncomfortable bit in Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical (NBC) warfare. What I learned about these weapons is they are nasty, nasty, nasty crap.
Since Syria surely seems to have used chlorine gas and saran nerve agent . Chlorine was first used during WWI. It can produce fatal damage to the lungs. Death can resemble drowning. That is fluids…Continue
