Democratic Party has its work cut out at the state level

 

unnamed

It behooves the Democrats to concentrate some of their efforts toward electing democrats at the state and local level as that’s where many future candidates hone their skills for later runs for national office.

(SAN FRANCISCO)  The Democrats elected Tom Perez for the Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairmanship.  After winning the vote, Perez appointed Keith Ellison as the Deputy Chair.  Perez and Ellison each pledged to rebuild state and local parties, including in Republican-dominated states.  The Democrats have much work to do at the state and local level where laws are passed disfavoring Democrats.

Trump versus the media

unnaedUnfortunately, the mistrust of science and critical thinking in this country is a growing problem.  Trump like a snake oil salesman knows this and panders to this mistrust.  If we are not careful, we will listen to what Trump says and forget to watch what he does.

(SAN FRANCISCO)  Low Energy Jeb [Bush], Little Marco [Rubio], Lyin’ Ted [Cruz] pathological Ben [Carson], and Crooked Hillary [Clinton] were all quite effective labels used by Donald Trump on his march to the White House. With the destruction of 16 primary challengers and a well-known political figure in his rear-view mirror, Trump has now zeroed in on his old opponent, the media. Why?  Because the media is out to get him.  Or maybe they are just fact checking.

Senate Should Confirm Gorsuch to Supreme Court

Gorsuch’s confirmation will bring the Supreme Court back to four conservatives, not a majority of five.

(SAN FRANCISCO) The Senate should confirm Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court if he is found to be qualified.  I understand the Republicans refused to even consider Merrick Garland, Obama’s Supreme Court nominee, even though Obama had ten months left on his term at the time.  I also understand had Hillary Clinton become president, the Republicans indicated no nominee of hers would be confirmed either.

Two-State Solution Delusion

Netanyahu’s One Finger Answer To The Two-State Solution

Total U.S. aid to Israel is approximately one-third of the American foreign-aid budget, even though Israel comprises just .001% of the world’s population and already has one of the world’s higher per capita incomes.

(SAN FRANCISCO)  A fantasy persists of a Israeli-Palestine peace agreement leading to an independent Palestine state in the land Israel has occupied since the 1967 Mideast War.  It must be clear by now to anyone paying attention that Israel has no intention of engaging in meaningful peace negotiations that would result in an independent Palestinian state.  Rather, Israel is slowly squeezing the Palestinians where the ultimate goal is to take over the entire country by  erecting a wall or fence, which cuts deep into Palestinian territory, joining large Jewish settlement blocks to Israel, further confining the Palestinians to isolated enclaves.

Without prevention, outrage and leadership, the Prescription Opioid/Heroin Epidemic will worsen in 2017

It will not be a good year for many in 2017 — for others, it will be very lucrative and his name is George Soros as a benefactor to “hitched stars.”

(MYRTLE BEACH)  I recently wrote an article for Global News Centre and Salem-News.com that generated quite a flurry of concern and discussion — the evil reach of George Soros in his attempts to legalize drugs in the U.S. and also Partnership for a Drug Free Kids funded by the FDA and Purdue Pharma, maker of OxyContin.  Links to these articles are shown below.

George Soros, Evil Destroyer of US and his contribution to “Partnership for Drug Free Kids” and “Facing Addiction” – non-profit organizations!

(MYRTLE BEACH)  The New York Times once described Hungarian born multi-billionaire, George Soros as the single largest donor to use his philanthropy to change or deconstruct the moral values and attitudes particularly of the American people — and legalize illegal/recreational drugs.

Surgeon General Vivek Murthy, MD recently released an almost 500 page report on the prescription opioid/heroin epidemic.  The title of the report is “Facing Addiction in America – The Surgeon General’s Report on Alcohol, Drugs and Health.”  Find it interesting that the title would read “Facing Addiction?”  I did.

We are fighting a Tsunami of addiction and deaths throughout the country. Any politicians giving free reign for pill mills to flourish and tie the hands of the DEA need congressional resources to investigate their ability to profit financially.

(MYRTLE BEACH)   On October 19, 2014 I wrote an article for Global News Centre and Salem-News.com entitled “Congressman Tom Marino (PA) and Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn (TN) “prescribe” Walgreens be unaccountable for errors in loss of lives …. Why?” A link to both articles regarding a bill they sponsored HR 4709 is shown below.

US allowed Taliban to flourish

(SALEM)  In 1999, I circulated a petition urging people to boycott Unocal for funding the Taliban, or Taleban, in an Afghanistan pipeline project.   At the time,  I was a staff Photojournalist/Reporter for KVVU FOX 5 in Las Vegas.  Many of us were keenly aware then, before 9/11 (Not that Taliban had even the slightest role in that event), that the Taliban were a scourge in Afghanistan, subjecting women to torment that was highly objectionable.  All women were forced to wear the burqa and they lived in great fear.

Ace Knight’s critical observation connects several groups, time periods, and individuals.

(SALEM)   Author Ace Knight says he may have discovered a long-hidden Masonic mystery in “St. John the Baptist”, the last painting by Leonardo Da Vinci.  As you will see in the video below, Knight discovered the sacred Masonic symbol and it becomes visible when the painting is mirrored, and then rotated 33 degrees together.

FDA fails to protect children from dangerous drugs

(MYRTLE BEACH)  On September 15 and 16, I attended an FDA meeting to discuss the appropriate development plans for establishing the safety and efficacy of prescription opioid analgesics for pediatric patients.  On September 15, the day was filled with physicians giving their “expert” opinions on neonatals and newborns being given opioids for pain — after all they feel the pain of “needle sticks”.  One expert said the discussion was like “elephants in a room”.  I describe it as “egos in a room” and there were many of them.

(SAN FRANCISCO)   These 10 images are part of a visual story of my son Michael Paul Stone’s short life.  Michael died of AIDS in 1984, at the beginning of the AIDS crisis.  He was 19.  These images are to celebrate his short life, and to remind us that more than 1.2 million people in the United States are living with AIDS and almost 1 in 8 (12.8%) are unaware of their infection.
