The first court test of Bayer/J&J’s billion-dollar bonanza, blood-thinner, Xarelto, is coming up in New Orleans next week. The outcome will influence how the 18,000 lawsuits behind it will be handled.
The plaintiff in the first suit is Joseph Boudreaux. “While Xarelto was supposed to help cut his stroke risk, Boudreaux says it instead caused internal bleeding that required a week-long hospital stay in the intensive-care unit, several blood transfusions and multiple heart procedures. ‘I don’t want anybody else to suffer like I have from that drug,’ the part-time security guard says,” reports the Chicago Tribune.

Apparently, we live in a time where anti-white racism is being normalized. According to the extreme-Leftists, such as ANTIFA, you cannot be racist to a white guy.
At least this seems to be the case in the USA where this incident took place.
An ANTIFA anti-Trump protester forgot to through some things in the trash can. It was a number of pamphlets revealing a terrifying slogan: Continue reading “ANTIFA pamphlet calls for the “purge of white race””
For years, the 82nd Avenue of the Roses parade has kicked off Portland’s annual Rose Festival and marked beginning of the Oregon city’s parade season.

Continue reading “Portland rose parade canceled after ‘anti-fascist’ email threatens local Republican group”
President Trump, how’s that swamp drainage project going?
Another big move in the last couple of weeks has been the sidelining of Trump’s chief strategist Steve Bannon as the Goldman-Sachs group wins more influence in the White House. Bannon has been the guardian of the anti-establishment hopes that put Candidate Trump in office. Continue reading “You Got Trumped: Bannon banned and Cohn-Kushner establishment advanced”

A bill to expand the federal death penalty to include the killing of state and local police officers advanced through a Republican-controlled committee in Congress Thursday, over the objections of civil liberties and criminal justice groups who argue it is unnecessary and duplicative.
The House Judiciary Committee advanced a bill Thursday, the Thin Blue Line Act, by a 19-12 vote that would make the killing of a state or local law enforcement officer during the commission of a federal crime an aggravating factor for juries to consider when weighing a death penalty sentence. Continue reading “Thin Blue Line’ Bill to Expand Federal Death Penalty Advances in Congress”
In 1961 we almost lost North Carolina, when. The only reason the state didn’t suffer the first unplanned nuclear explosion on American soil was because an on-off switch happened to be in the “off” position.
Stories such as this, which were examined in Eric Schlosser’s critically-acclaimed 2013 book, “Command and Control,” show just how lucky we have been when it comes to the safety of our nuclear arsenal. Continue reading ““Command and Control”: The day Arkansas was almost nuked”

Washington created and supports ISIS, along with other anti-government terrorists in Syria and elsewhere.
NATO, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and other regional rogue states supply them with weapons and other material support.
So does Israel. In June 2015, the Times of Israel quoted former Israeli defense minister Moshe Ya’alon, saying “(w)e’ve assisted (anti-government terrorist groups in Syria on) two conditions. That they don’t get too close to (Israel’s) border, and…don’t touch the Druze.” Continue reading “Israel Aids ISIS”
Senator Chuck Schumer on MSNBC (via ZeroHedge): “We’re no longer fact-based. The founding fathers created a country based on fact. We don’t have a fact base. If Breitbart News and the New York Times are regarded with equal credibility, you worry about this democracy.”
First of all, in Schumer’s opening sentence, who is this “we”? There is an implication that the “we” is somehow monolithic and centralized. But people have been in disagreement about facts and what they mean since the dawn of time. People have rejected centralized sources of facts, from kings and queens and priests, to newspapers and television news. Continue reading “What Chuck Schumer is revealing out in the open”

The CIA has denied that it has any information about intelligence budget-line items earmarked for Israel between 1990 and 2015—a claim which a federal judge in Washington DC has dismissed as “neither logical nor plausible.”
According to a report by the Courthouse News Service (“CIA Hammered After Shrug on Israel Records”), the ruling came in response to a Freedom of Information Act request from the director of the Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy who asked for the information back in March 2015.

Two leading U.S. news outlets reported on Wednesday on business ties totaling tens of millions of dollars between the family of Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, and the Steinmetz family, one of the richest families in Israel which made most of its fortune in the diamond industry in recent decades.
According to reports published in Bloomberg and in the New York Times, the ties between the two families include high-stake real estate deals in Manhattan worth more than $150 million. Bloomberg says at least 15 different buildings in downtown Manhattan are co-owned by Raz Steinmetz, nephew of diamond dealer Beny Steinmetz, and by Kushner family’s Kushner Companies. The two also invested together in a project bearing President Trump’s name in New Jersey, according to the report.

An Ohio couple, Christian and Katie Maple, lost custody of one of their children after they disagreed with the school’s mental health assessment of their child.
Camden Maple, a seven-year-old boy, has five siblings and enjoys Star Wars, Pokémon, football, video games, and Legos. He loves to write stories and draws comic books. While this sounds like an ordinary, creative, imaginative American little boy who can, according to his mom, be “rambunctious” at times, his school said that he needed mental health help.
