  • Clinton's eyes — a window into her health issues

    In 2014 Conan O'Brien did a spoof of Hillary Clinton's interview with Diane Sawyer about her lack of lingering health issues following her 2012 concussion. In an obviously photoshopped version, Clinton's eyes are made to oscillate crazily. It was a very funny piece. Now, it may not seem so funny. Hillary Clinton exhibited abnormal eye movements during her recent speech in Philadelphia and they were not photo-shopped. Her eyes did not always move in the same direction at the same time. It appears that she has a problem with her left sixth cranial nerve. That nerve serves only one function...
  • Why we should treat Islamophobia as a public health issue

    When I was 16, a Texas police officer pulled me over and said "it's people like you that are ruining this country. Go back to your country." People who speed, I thought? Girls who are late for figure skating practice? I wasn't sure what he meant. What country was I supposed to go to? I was born and raised in Austin. Then, it dawned on me. It was a month after 9/11, and he meant Muslims. Islamophobia is widespread. In the 15 years that have followed the Sept. 11 attacks, many Muslim or Middle Eastern Americans have been repeatedly...

    A Baltimore City Council member introduced a replica gun ban Monday criminalizing the possession of any toy or imitation weapon “that can reasonably be perceived to be a real firearm.” Councilman James Kraft told The Baltimore Sun he sponsored the legislation “to protect the city’s youth.” In April, city police officers shot 14-year-old Dedric Colvin in the shoulder and leg on a street in East Baltimore. Colvin was carrying a BB gun officers said resembled a semiautomatic pistol. Similar incidents have unfolded across the country. Last week police officers in Columbus, Ohio, shot and killed 13-year-old Tyree King after...

Of course Obamacare was designed to fail. The system is built on lies. It is a Trojan horse for a total government takeover of health care in the United States. In an op-ed in The Hill, Jeffrey I.

    You have to admit there is a twisted sense of satisfaction derived from delivering a good insult. It is even more gratifying when your intended target does not realize it is an insult. Now, do not be squishy. No one is immune to the innate desire and even need to retaliate against folks who caused physical or mental anguish to you or someone near and dear to you. Sometimes turning the other cheek is not an option, particularly if the object of your retaliatory insult suffers from the pachyderm syndrome – thick skinned, thick headed and vocabulary disadvantaged.

Some things seem too oddly entangled to be coincidence, especially where the Clintons are involved. - Despite the above, a "business lookup" search at,...

    Hillary Clinton’s campaign on Wednesday released more information about her health that depicted her as a healthy 68-year-old woman with low cholesterol (without taking a statin) and seasonal allergies. She also takes a thyroid medication, and as the campaign has previously disclosed, she takes a blood thinner, Coumadin. A letter from her physician, Dr. Lisa Bardack — released in a move designed to reassure voters just days after she was diagnosed with pneumonia — declares that Clinton "continues to remain healthy and fit to serve as President of the United States."

Perhaps, after you were burned yet again, you half-joked that they must have a personality disorder. Today, experts believe it’s very possible that your colleague is a psychopath. Groundbreaking research presented at the Australian Psychology Society Congress in Melbourne this week reveals that one in five corporate workers may have the disorder — as many as in the prison population.

The Democratic presidential candidate was diagnosed with the illness after she collapsed at an 'incredibly stifling' 9/11 ceremony in New York.

Those infected usually spread the disease by sneezing while in close contact with others, who then breathe in the bacteria, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention....

    A child psychiatrist is shedding light on the issue of transgenderism after a Texas mother asked a school to adopt a transgender bathroom policy to accommodate her kindergartener. EAGNews reports the Pearland Independent School District is refusing to comply with a mother's request this month to change its policy even though she says her transgender child is so distraught he prays to be taken to heaven. Psychiatrist Dr. Allan Josephson of the University of Louisville's Bingham Clinic says a child that age cannot grasp the concept of transgenderism. "To be this troubled to ask to be taken away or go...

    Including: Making insurers help pay the costs of other insurers' high-cost policyholders ObamaCare is a huge and glorious success, and it’s the shining jewel in Barack Obama’s legacy. That’s what the Democrats have been telling us for several years, and for the most part the media have dutifully parrotted this talking point. But in recent months, it’s gotten harder for Obama’s media protectors to keep pretending everything is OK. Exchanges are in dire fiscal straits. Insurers are dropping out. Premiums are soaring. Provider networks are narrowing. The left keep reaching back for what it thinks is the one saving grace...

    That's a 35 percent increase, and it brings debt held by the public to the highest share of GDP since 1952 If I told you the deficit was soaring, economic growth was terrible and ObamaCare was collapsing, you’d assume that Obama’s approval ratings would be in the tank and the Democrats would have no hope of electing someone who basically promises to continue his policies. Well, I’m telling you. All this is happening. But these are not the major issues in the presidential campaign because one candidate is hopelessly corrupt and dishonest and the other one just really bothers people...

    When it comes to dogs, do you think they prefer a nice belly rub or a delicious treat? While the dog from the Beggin' Strips commercial is always thrilled about devouring his treat, chances are he actually would have preferred a nice pat on the head, according to new research. Scientists at Emory University wanted to see if dogs value human companionship more than food. This led them to conduct brain scans of 15 dogs while presenting objects paired with rewards. For example, after the dogs were shown a toy car, their owners would praise them....

    Health Reform: This week Illinois' insurance regulator said ObamaCare premiums in the state will jump as high as 55%. The Obama administration's response to this and other news of massive rate hikes: Don't worry. Be happy. Anyone shopping for ObamaCare coverage in Illinois this fall is in for a big shock. The average increase for cheap Bronze plans is likely 44%. It's 45% for the lowest-cost Silver plan, and 55% for the cheapest Gold plan.

    Hillary feigns outrage, but everything about this has Democrat fingerprints on it Just like earlier this year with Martin Shkreli and Daraprim, the Internet is full of outrage the past few days over the action of Mylan CEO Heather Fausch to raise the price of the live-saving drug EpiPen to $500 per unit. And as always happens, politicians are getting into the act, particularly Hillary Clinton, who raged that Mylan must reduce the price immediately - as if pharmaceutical companies check with candidates for political office in setting their pricing. But if Hillary really wants to manifest her rage -...
  • The Lack of EpiPen Competitors is the FDA's Fault

    There’s a new bout of outrage over an expensive medicine or medical treatment. While the good in question changes each time, the blame always seems to fall on greedy corporations who just aren’t regulated enough. Free markets and capitalism are the scapegoat, even when nothing remotely resembling unhampered markets in health care is in place in the United States. This time, it’s the EpiPen, a device that easily and safely injects epinephrine to quickly open up airways for people undergoing severe anaphylaxis because of an extreme allergy. It has saved the lives of countless people who are allergic to bee...

    Meanwhile, the NYT and Google have run into a brick wall, the one that proves “a picture’s worth a thousand words” There was only ever one surefire way for Barack Hussein Obama to steal a third term in office at the White House. Imposing martial law to suspend elections would be inconvenient, messy and outrageous to millions of patriots who awaited Obama’s departure for nearly eight long years. It would also be as transparent as a visibly hefty Michelle Obama ‘s credibility leading a Childhood Obesity initiative. Only the ruinous election of Hillary Clinton could guarantee Obama a third term...
