FDA bans life risking ‘Sprinkles’ from cupcakes

I am trying to stay upbeat with good news and a Holiday theme. Well, I tried. So I bring you the last season that we will see the deadly sprinkles adorning cupcakes. Like a sniper taking his best shot, the FDA put their scope’s red light on the infamous cupcake. So folks, get out there before the new year and grab yourself some sprinkles. Here we go:

Come the New Year, the Food and Drug Administration, ignoring the principle that in most cases it’s the dose that defines the poison, will issue new regulations designed to remove even trace amounts of hydrogenate oils, commonly known as trans fats, from our diets.

Trans fats have been in our foods since the 1950s to increase shelf life and improve taste. A small amount appears naturally in some foods, but research has determined that large quantities of trans fats in one’s diet can be dangerous for long-term health.

But so can large quantities of bacon, and no one has proposed banning bacon, at least not yet, but we’re sure that thought has occurred to those who want 16-ounce soft drinks banned while forcing our children to eat cardboard school lunches.

Each American consumes a mere 1.3 grams of trans fats per day. That’s roughly 0.6% of our total daily calories, and no research suggests that this poses a health risk. But that’s not enough to dissuade the federal nannies from regulating even the most minute aspect of our daily lives.

I hope everyone is having an enjoyable week. It is a wonderful time of the year with family and friends.

Court rules EPA cannot regulate lead bullets

There is more than one way to take away our Second Amendment rights, and the EPA is high on the list of methods of ways to control guns. Go after the ammo. I bring you the latest court ruling and then share a couple of earlier posts as a reminder that they will not rest until they try to take our rights away via ammo from our cold dead hands. Here we go:

Hunters, hold your fire — the Environmental Protection Agency won’t regulate your bullets.

A federal appeals court denied a lawsuit Tuesday by environmental groups that the EPA must use the Toxic Substances Control Act regulate lead used in shells and cartridges.

“We agree that the EPA lacks statutory authority to regulate the type of spent bullets and shot identified in the environmental groups’ petition,” Judge David Tatel wrote for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.

Environmental groups had sued the agency to do so, saying spent lead ammunition posed an “unreasonable risk of injury” to wildlife and humans who would eat the animals they kill. The groups rejected the EPA’s assertion that it lacked the authority to do so.

Let us go down a bit of memory lane and what our government is doing.

Last U.S. lead ammo company shut down by EPA

The all-out attack on Americans’ gun rights is now being taken to the next level.

The goal is to regulate all forms of ammunition out of existence, and they’re starting with Doe Run, which is the last of America’s domestic lead processing and manufacturing facilities.

Now, the only ore-to-lead producer in America… the largest in the Western world… has been shut down by EPA regulation.

EPA’s regulatory uncertainty and an estimated $100 million to convert [to non-smelter manufacturing] caused the company to finally throw in the towel.

Lead’s still going to be manufactured in China, but it’ll be done without any environmental oversight, it’ll be scarce, it’ll be expensive, and we’ll have fragile supply lines.

How about this story?

OSHA gets into the act, weapons drawn, raids brass ammo plant

Government officials have declined to respond to allegations that armed officers with weapons drawn locked up USA Brass employees, confiscated their cell phones and otherwise violated their rights.

He explained that although USA Brass “had been subject to some civil enforcement action for workplace safety by OSHA, the company had completely remedied any such problems and had been given a clean bill of health by OSHA.”

So the “raid” apparently was unrelated, Marbut said.

“Because a warrant was served on USA Brass, anyone would wonder if there were some particularly egregious activity going on there, and what the federal foreknowledge of that activity might be. Because of the overwhelming armed force used by federal officials to mount this raid, that suggests expected resistance or some sort of ongoing, violent criminal conduct at USA Brass. Your investigation should disclose whether or not these suppositions, spawned by the tactics of the raid, are correct or incorrect. This, in turn, should offer some perspective about whether or not the level of force and intimidation used was warranted,” Marbut wrote.

I am not a fan of Alex Jones and Info wars, but the story nails it.

Military Chaplin disciplined for mentioning faith

Apparently the days of having Chaplains in the military are coming to an end. Perhaps I should say Christian Chaplains. In this Christmas season, of all times, it is worth a note that this item is on the agenda of this administration. Here we go:

Apparently, the Obama administration’s ostensible determination to foster “diversity” in the military is a one-way street. Army Chaplain Joseph Lawhorn was disciplined for mentioning his faith and the Bible as part of a November suicide prevention training seminar with the 5th Ranger Training Battalion. “You provided a two-sided handout that listed Army resources on one side and a biblical approach to handling depression on the other side,” wrote Col. David Fivecoat, commander of the Airborne and Ranger Training Brigade at Ft. Benning, Georgia, in an official Letter of Concern. “This made it impossible for those in attendance to receive the resource information without also receiving the biblical information.”

In an interview with the Daily Signal, Lawhorn expressed that idea, further insisting he was only doing his job. “What I had tried to communicate with my audience is that depression can be conquered, depression can be overcome, and there are a myriad of ways of dealing with depression,” he explained. “In this particular case, I had struggled myself personally with the issue at hand I was teaching.”

Obama and his Civilian security force

As we watch as our various police forces are intentionally demoralized and worse, let’s think about connecting the dots. The man made the statement below numerous times. Yet not one person questioned what Obama meant. No doubt Valerie knew. Al Sharpton knew. Ms Piven knew. And Obama continues to gut the military.

“We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set,” Obama said.  “We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”

That is what the man said.

Now we see, perhaps, then-Candidate Obama’s intent re-emerging — not through the creation of a voluntary service program, but through the co-opting of various government agencies to suppress those whom this administration perceives as enemies.

– The IRS has been used to target Tea Party groups and has leaked private information about other conservative organizations, such as the National Organization for Marriage.

-The EPA has been heaping monstrous regulations upon the U.S. coal industry in order to, essentially, kill it.

– When Tea Partiers organized a small protest/press conference in front of the IRS in Washington, D.C. last May, Homeland Security vehicles outnumbered the Tea Partier attendees.  Homeland Security’s overbearing, disproportionate presence was intimidating, as intended.

Even more disturbing is this: what we are now witnessing may also be a test to see if U.S. civil servants are willing to suppress their consciences and falsify their beliefs in order to continue to “fit in” at work.  After all, IRS, EPA, Homeland Security, and U.S Park Service employees can reassure themselves, saying, “I’m only doing my job.”

Holder: Racist cops like those in Ferguson ‘Threaten the entire Nation’ Part 2

Here is part of an earlier post done in the beginning of December. Has anyone forgotten how we got to where we are today? Mission accomplished.

Forget Immigration, Forget the Planes that the Terrorists have in mind for us, forget the IRS scandal, forget ISIS. Let us beat the drum for race riots. There, that should do it. Holder’s remarks at a Black Church.

WASHINGTONThe problems put on display after the death of Michael Brown in the small St. Louis suburb of Ferguson, Missouri, in August “are truly national in scope and that threaten the entire nation,” Attorney General Eric Holder said in a speech on Monday.Holder, speaking at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, said the nation needs to confront the broken relationship between many law enforcement agencies and the communities that they are supposed to serve.

“Broadly speaking, without mutual understanding between citizens — whose rights must be respected — and law enforcement officers — who make tremendous and often-unheralded personal sacrifices every day to preserve public safety — there can be no meaningful progress,” Holder said in prepared remarks. “Our police officers cannot be seen as an occupying force disconnected from the communities they serve. Bonds that have been broken must be restored. Bonds that never existed must now be created.”

Sunday respite: ‘Carol of the Bells

One of my favorite pieces. A very difficult piece to sing. Our family’s standard Christmas event was to watch the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Enjoy.
