    Two of the Clinton Foundation’s shady international partners have been arrested for fraud. And experts and law enforcement officials in the United States say this spells potential big trouble for Bill & Hillary Clinton and their own shady ‘charity’ known as the Clinton Foundation. Authorities in India have arrested businessmen brothers Malvinder Singh and Shivinder Singh in an alleged fraud case — one of many linked to this duo. The Singh brothers are former promoters of Fortis Healthcare and Ranbaxy Laboratories and are no newcomers to sweeping allegations of fraud. It is believed untold millions of dollars in kickbacks were...

    As poor as CNN’s ratings are in the United States, a rational person would conclude that, at some point, the executives who run the place would figure out what they’re doing wrong and fix it so that they could attract more viewers. But CNN isn’t run by rational people. In fact, we believe everyone who works there is certifiably out of their minds. They’d have to be in order to come up with some of the dumbest, tone-deaf, inappropriate, uninteresting, and pointless BS they put on the air. Like holding a “town hall” meeting with a gay man, hosted by...

    BOONSBORO, Md. (AP) — Authorities say an HIV-positive man has been charged with raping a boy on the Appalachian Trail in western Maryland. The Herald-Mail reports that 43-year-old Jason Henry Cochrane of Millersville is charged with sex abuse of a minor, second-degree rape and other counts in Washington County. A judge earlier this week ordered Cochrane held without bond while he awaits trial. Maryland Natural Resources Police said in court documents that officers were called Saturday morning to the Pine Knob Shelter on the Appalachian Trail near the border with Frederick County.
  • HIV Cases Soar (among gay and bisexual men) in the Philippines, as Dating Apps Spread

    MANILA—HIV is spreading faster in the Philippines than anywhere in the world. The estimated number of new infections in this Southeast Asian nation has more than doubled from 2013 through 2018, reaching epidemic proportions among young men, according to the United Nations’ AIDS agency. The surge in the virus that causes AIDS stands out against the decline in estimated world-wide infections. Determining the cause can be difficult and inevitably involves some guesswork among epidemiologists seeking answers. But health advocates think a major driver has been dating apps, which have encouraged promiscuity in a country where traditional social norms have kept...

  • Gay 'chemsex' is fueling HIV epidemics in Europe, experts warn

    NBC News (By Reuters) ^ | Sept. 12, 2019 | By Reuters
    A surge in "chemsex" parties, where people spend days getting high on drugs and having sex with scores of partners, is re-fueling epidemics of HIV among gay men in European towns and cities, doctors say. Despite much higher risks of contracting the virus that causes AIDS, as well as other sexually transmitted infections (STIs), users search online "hook-up" apps like Grindr for tags such as "high and horny" or "party and play" to find others wanting drug-heightened and often anonymous and unprotected sex. The result, AIDS experts say, is that in cities across Europe, HIV is spreading rapidly among men...

    Americus Police Department says they’ve interviewed Brandi Yakeima Lasiter, the woman who made the viral video stating that she may have given HIV to multiple partners. In a news release, APD says detectives interviewed Lasiter on August 6. Lasiter now says that she does not have the HIV virus and that she made the video because she was angry at the people she named. She provided documentation of a blood test from September 2018 that showed she was not HIV positive. Lasiter has voluntarily submitted to a blood test to verify her status of not being infected with HIV. The...

    SEATTLE, June 26, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — A public library in Washington state was the platform for a drag show and "pride celebration designed by teens for teens" that featured a man dressed in drag who roared incoherently while on all fours. One parent called it “demonic.” “This is what demonic possession looks like. (Watch to the end.) I know a lot of y’all don’t believe in the spiritual realm, but thanks for bearing with me anyway. In my opinion, this is it. On all fours. Growling. At the teen pride event at the public library,” wrote one parent about the...

    So that’s how the Rev. Al stays so thin. Al Sharpton outlined a super specific diet and workout regimen that for years has helped him maintain his 130-pound weight in a Q&A with GQ Thursday. The 64-year-old activist turned MSNBC host’s exercise routine has him up at 4 a.m. seven days a week — and he follows a diet that includes three slices of seven-grain toast a day. “I have to stay at a hotel with a fitness room and that also has seven-grain toast,” he told the magazine. Sharpton was once over 300 pounds, but the controversial activist has...

    WASHINGTON — The Trump administration said Wednesday it is ending medical research by government scientists using human fetal tissue, a victory for abortion foes that comes despite impassioned pleas from scientists that some health problems can't be studied any other way. Research using fetal tissue that otherwise would be discarded has been funded by the government, under leadership of both political parties, for decades — and has led to life-saving advances including development of vaccines for rubella and rabies, and drugs for the HIV virus. Officials said government-sponsored research by universities will be allowed to continue, subject to additional scrutiny....

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., attempted to make a case for universal health care on Thursday after a tense confrontation over the HIV prevention drug known as PrEP. During a congressional hearing, Ocasio-Cortez pressed Gilead Sciences CEO Daniel O'Day on why his company's drug -- Truvada for PrEP -- cost so much more in the United States than in Australia. She later answered her own question on Twitter, saying that the U.S. health care system was to blame. "Spoiler: Because Australia has universal health care," she tweeted. During the hearing, O'Day responded to Ocasio-Cortez by noting how the drug was under...

    Officials have accused a doctor of causing the epidemic after repeatedly using a single contaminated syringe. Dr Muzaffar Ghangharo, who officials said is himself living with HIV, has been in police custody since the outbreak began in April but denies the allegations. 'We are working on war footing to examine the suspects as well as those wishing to get themselves tested after a large number of cases were reported from Larkana and other districts,' Dr Memon said. Anger and fear continue to swell in the desperately poor village hit hard by the epidemic, which authorities say could also be linked...

    An end to the Aids epidemic could be in sight after a landmark study found men whose HIV infection was fully suppressed by antiretroviral drugs had no chance of infecting their partner. The success of the medicine means that if everyone with HIV were fully treated, there would be no further infections. Among nearly 1,000 male couples across Europe where one partner with HIV was receiving treatment to suppress the virus, there were no cases of transmission of the infection to the HIV-negative partner during sex without a condom. Although 15 men were infected with HIV during the eight-year study,...

    South Bend mayor and Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg drew some backlash for his stance on mandatory vaccinations. Buzzfeed reported that Buttigieg supports states' rights to mandate vaccinations, but also supports "some exceptions." "The law of the land for more than a century has been that states may enforce mandatory vaccination for public safety to prevent the spread of a dangerous disease. Pete does support some exceptions, except during a public health emergency to prevent an outbreak," a spokesman for the South Bend mayor told Buzzfeed.
