NOT COVID: Huge new scandal threatens to engulf FDA
Sep 7th, 2021 by Warren Swil

Hasty OK of costly,


unproven Alzheimers’ drug

draws intense scrutiny

Three months ago the Food and Drug Administration – in a move that took many by surprise – granted “accelerated approval” for a wildly expensive but unproven new drug to treat Alzheimer’s disease.

Acting FDA Director Dr. Janet Woodcock

The move has been followed by a cascading series of protests and intense scrutiny.
The drug, Aducanumab (branded Aduhelm for marketing) was developed by Biogen Inc. It will cost patients about $56,000 per year. FDA approval could cost Medicare billions.
Two House committees have already launched probes of the approval process. Even the FDA acting director has asked the HHS inspector general to investigate.
The multiple probes indicate something serious is amiss. What is already known stinks to high heaven!

Millions of Americans glad they DON’T live in Texas

LONE STAR STATE RAPIDLY EVOLVES BACK TO THE MIDDLE AGES
If you have the misfortune to live in Texas, the rest of us are increasingly happy NOT to.
As the Lone Star state becomes ever-more divorced from the 20th century, its residents are living through a cultural/political reversion of Biblical proportions.
It is said that in California we have three seasons: summer, fires, and earthquakes. For my money, I would humbly submit that if we had all three of these on the same day (which is a distinct possibility given climate change), California would still be better than Texas.

#POXONFOX: Murdochs’ media empire poses dire threat to democracy (with video)

NEW EXPOSE REVEALS HOW ‘BIG LIE’ DEVOURED FOX, SPLIT THE FAMILY
In a stunning expose – the likes of which has not yet been seen in America – Australia’s premier television network has laid bare how the incestuous relationship between the disgraced 45th President and Rupert Murdoch’s Fox ‘News’ consumed the network and irreconcilably split the Murdoch dynasty.
It is definitely must-see-TV.
WATCH IT HERE.

POINTING FINGERS: Who’s really to blame for the Afghanistan fiasco?

Cheney, Rumsfeld enabled disastrous Taliban takeover
In the historical context, the sometimes venomous criticism being aimed at President Joe Biden for the current fiasco in Afghanistan is grossly misdirected.
The seeds of the current disaster were sown almost 20 years ago by the hubris and malfeasance of then-Vice President Dick Cheney and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld. Without their mistakes, the Taliban would have been consigned to the dustbin of history decades ago.
History is an unforgiving mistress!

The BEST way to get millions more vaccinated fast

DENY INSURANCE COVERAGE TO UNVACCINATED COVID PATIENTS
With millions of Americans too lazy, stupid or ignorant to get a Covid shot, there is one sure way to make them do it.
Public and private health insurance providers should immediately announce that as of Sept. 30 they will no longer cover any treatment for Covid illnesses amongst those who are not vaccinated. Testing and vaccinations should remain free.
Denying insurance coverage for Covid-19 treatment to the unvaccinated is the best and quickest way to solve this problem.

BLACK SWAN AIMS DAGGER AT TRUMP

The Covid-19 virus pandemic – a veritable Black Swan event –poses the greatest threat to the presidency of Donald Trump in his 38 months in office.
No matter how soothing the talk from Trump and his cronies, they cannot tweet away a devastating outbreak of lethal disease nor a rapidly swooning economy.
This is the first crisis of the Trump presidency not caused entirely by the president own calamitous misbehavior. With a bit of luck, it will be the last.

TRUMP SLUMP: First Family’s business takes nosedive

EXODUS BUILDS TO A STAMPEDE FROM TRUMP BRAND
Few global businesses would dare lose over a billion potential customers in a week.
The Trump family empire just did.
The list of famous firms distancing themselves from the Trump brand is growing daily, and could soon become a stampede.
Upending the lives of thousands of aspiring immigrants may not move the US president.
But the budding economic backlash is bound to get the attention of this egomaniac, who plastered his name on everything from steaks, to wine, buildings and even a fake “university.”
Perhaps the only good outcome for the US from its 45th president will be when the Trump brand disappears into oblivion.

UNTRUTH and CONSEQUENCES: Trump’s lies exposed as millions march in protest

DYSTOPIAN VIEWS OF NEW PRESIDENT REJECTED AROUND THE WORLD

On his first day in office, President Donald Trump was exposed as a blatant liar as millions of people around the world rejected his dystopian view of “carnage” in America.
It’s a truly encouraging sign that millions of women (and men) braved frigid winter weather to reject to the false world view of the most powerful man in thee world.
And it is equally portentous that the blatant lies he told on his first official day in office were so prominently labeled as such by the most respected news media we have.
Perhaps there is a glimmer of hope after all that we “the people” have finally found our voice.

EXPLOSIVE: Dodgy dossier blows up Trump‘s agenda

UNVERIFIED RUSSIAN SEX TAPE, BLACKMAIL CLAIMS UNHINGE PRESIDENT-ELECT
The stunning publication of an almost amateurish “dossier” on Donald Trump’s Russian connections unhinged the president-elect at his first news conference.
Even if only a small portion of the dossier is true, the implications are enormous. The feds are investigating.
The charges have just enough “truthiness,” so that those who want to believe them will be able to. To Trump supporters, it’s the essence of “fake” news.
If the president-elect had dismissed them with a one-sentence brush-off, they might have been relegated to the dustbin of history. His howls of protest, however, have ensured it will get legs and be pursued for every once of its news value.

FROM TREASONABLE TO REASONABLE: The rehabilitation of Wikileaks

COULD TRUMP’S EMBRACE OF WIKILEAKS’ FOUNDER PRESAGE A PARDON?
The sudden bromance between Donald Trump and Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has heads spinning across the political spectrum.
Assange has become the darling of the right since Wikileaks published emails and documents purloined from Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
Will he be forgiven all his previous sins now that many believe he played at least a minor role in swinging the election to Donald Trump?
Could a pardon be in the cards?
