Spraying of chemical Naled comes to Miami, banned in 22 countries

The vision of crop dusters (actually helicopters) dive bombing Miami beach as tourists stretch out on the sand isn’t a pleasant one. Add that it is with a chemical Naled that has been banned in 22 countries in the European Union. But not to worry, the CDC, and the Surgeon General says it’s just fine. I would think if we can be mandated to “shelter in place” with a bit of police activity, this might be the time to mandate staying inside to reduce exposure and to make sure people are aware of the spraying at the least. As someone who lives part-time in Florida, I find it remarkable that we are and have been sprayed continuously without warning prior to any Zika virus, and everyone seemed to find it acceptable. Apparently now that spraying has come to Miami, a city, a question has been raised.

MIAMI BEACH (CBSMiami) — Dozens of protesters lined up in front of Miami Beach city hall as local leaders talked about a chemical causing debate in the Zika fight – Naled.

“This chemical was run out of Puerto Rico. It’s been banned in 22 European Unions and it’s the wrong message to be sent especially when you’re dealing with tourism here in Miami,” said business owner Chad Allison.

Mosquito control crews were set to spray Naled over Miami Beach, just like they did in Wynwood, starting Thursday but growing concerns from residents and local leaders prompted a delay.

“It came from the strong recommendation, from what we’ve been told, by the CDC, as well as the surgeon general, the Department of Agriculture and that decision, truly is solely made by the governor of the state of Florida,” said Levine on Tuesday.

Levine said he learned from the state on Tuesday through a news release that Florida Governor Rick Scott was mandating the spraying of Naled on the beach using its helicopters and its contractors – a decision that Mayor Gimenez is also supporting.

Medical marijuana users now banned from owning or buying guns court rules

They are coming full bore at us in attempting to limit our Second Amendment rights. The wacko 9th Circuit has a new approach. I would ask them to explain the difference between alcohol and marijuana in making this determination. I wonder who is going to round up those who already have a gun?

If you have a medical marijuana card, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that you can’t buy a gun.

Earlier this week the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that medical marijuana card holders do not have a 2nd amendment right to buy or own a firearm. The ruling applies to the nine Western states that fall under the court’s jurisdiction, including California, Washington, Oregon, Arizona, Nevada, and Alaska.

On Wednesday, in a 3-0 decision, the 9th Circuit agreed that Congress had reasonably concluded that marijuana and other drug use “raises the risk of irrational or unpredictable behavior with which gun use should not be associated.” The court’s ruling applied to nine Western states within the appeals court’s jurisdiction, including six that have legalized marijuana for medical or recreational purposes: California, Washington, Oregon, Arizona, Nevada, and Alaska.

Rainey plans to appeal the decision saying,  “We live in a world where having a medical marijuana card is enough to say you don’t get a gun, but if you’re on the no-fly list your constitutional right is still protected.” … “We are going to litigate this, exhaust whatever remedies we have,” Rainey said. “When this (ATF) letter was issued, it was issued as part of a deliberate attempt by the (U.S. Department of Justice) to quell a political movement.” More at Off Grid Survival

California solves Medi-Cal deficit by using $5400 Euthanasia drug

This is how the Progressives find value in human lives. Euthanasia. In a special session to determine methods for cost savings for their State Health care which is running a deficit this swell idea blossomed forth. Someone should ask Marxist Sanders his opinion. Throw in Hillary Clinton.

So, by NOT allowing people on Medi-Cal cancer doctors, you assure their death—and by using the $5400 lethal dose, taxpayers save money.  Is this unethical, immoral or just good business by government?  This is the same government that spends tens of millions of dollars to keep murderers alive on death row.  Confused?

From the California Catholic Conference story:

Without fanfare or announcement, Governor Brown’s proposed 2016 Budget recommends $2.3 million dollars to allow California to purchase lethal drugs for Medi-Cal patients who want their physician to help them commit suicide. California would pay an estimated $5,400 per patient just for the drugs yet Medi-Cal patients still have no access to palliative care (designed to improve the quality of life for patients and their family facing serious illnesses.) Even more incredibly, a recent study has shown that Medi-Cal recipients have only a one in three chance of even getting cancer treatments under the system and often cannot obtain second opinions.

Proponents of the assisted-suicide law insisted during last year’s debate that the lethal dose of drugs was not intended to save Medi-Cal costs yet lawmakers passed the legislation in a special session called specifically to address a Medi-Cal deficit.

British star faces jail for eugenics comment, Obamacare supports it

Juxtapose these two stories. The first being that of a British TV star who could be jailed because a “Down” baby squeaked by and was born, thus avoiding abortion, and should be “put down” against a Jonathan Gruber clip who testifies in support of the Obamacare “Death Panels” and abortion. He terms it “positive selection.” Here we go:

A BBC reality TV star could be jailed for posting on Facebook that children born with Down’s Syndrome should be ‘put down’.

Ursula Presgrave – who appeared on BBC3’s The Call Centre – was taken to court after saying disabled children should be killed instead of living the ‘pointless life of a vegetable’.

The 23-year-old pleaded guilty to an offence under the Malicious Communications act and now faces a maximum sentence of six months in jail or a £5,000 fine.

Presgrave, who was known on the BBC show for her tattoos, piercings and foul language, told Facebook followers: ‘Anyone born with down syndrome should be put down, it’s just cruel to let them lead a pointless life of a vegetable.’

The call centre worker, who appeared alongside Nev Wilshire in the BBC Three fly-on-the-wall series, was arrested after police also found photos joking about the disabled on her phone, Swansea Magistrates’ Court heard. Keep Reading…

Here is a previous post Obamacare Gruber: ‘Abortion of marginal children’ a ‘social good’ UPDATE 

Embattled MIT professor Jonathan Gruber has not only gotten in trouble for bragging about helping President Obama put one over on the American people with Obamacare, he’s also been uncovered as an abortion advocate—but not a run-of-the-mill advocate of “women’s rights.”

No, Gruber’s abortion advocacy is of a particularly pungent eugenics variety. He’s on record repeatedly making the case from social science that abortion is a “social good” because it reduces the number of “marginal children,” by which he means urban poor—those he says can be counted on to commit crimes if they were ever born.

Gruber co-authored a paper during the Clinton years which argued that legal abortion had saved the U.S. taxpayer upwards of $14 billion in welfare benefits and that it also lowered crime.

Planned Parenthood Richards caught in lies regarding Mammograms

So I am beating the drum with this one. The Planned Parenthood hearing was a fiasco due in large part because the videos were not permitted at the hearing to refute Ms Richards lying words. This wasn’t even presented regarding her lies of providing Mammograms. So I will do it. Thanks Mr Chafetz for a terrible hearing. Cecile Richards, CEO of Planned Parenthood:

Liar, Liar pants on fire.


The Libs can’t handle the disturbing Planned Parenthood videos

My internet was down yesterday, giving me the opportunity to spend my day watching C-Span and the Planned Parenthood hearing rather than disturbing myself with the latest world news which I will only find out more of by scouring the internet.

But alas. It was a debacle. No videos were available since apparently the Liberal 9th circuit court has put a hold on them. So why then the hearing? The argument seemed to be unfocused, with the chopping up of baby parts for money getting scant attention. More important to the argument were the cuts made to the clips due to bathroom breaks.Thus, the theory was the videos were pre-fabbed to make PP look bad.

But next time, let’s show the videos? Huh? Bonus time– an earlier post whose info did not come up in the discussion.

Obama touts religious freedom, meanwhile forces abortion support

Recall the thousands of waivers that were given to the administration’s cronies when Obamacare first came along? The Catholics were not so lucky. One thing is for sure. The Obama team is relentless with their thousands of lawyers.

(CNSNews.com) – “So we stand with you in defense of religious freedom and interfaith dialogue, knowing that people everywhere must be able to live out their faith free from fear and free from intimidation.”

That is part of what President Barack Obama said—in touting his administration’s commitment to religious liberty—when he greeted Pope Francis at the White House today.

Among the religious institutions involved in these lawsuits with the administration are 15 Catholic dioceses and archdioceses, and multiple Catholic universities, schools and religious orders.

“The Obama administration has just told the Catholics of the United States, ‘To Hell with you!’” the bishop wrote in the column. “There is no other way to put it.”At the same time, according to a count maintained by the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, Obama’s Justice Department is actively fighting 56 separate federal court cases aimed at forcing 140 religious ministries and institutions to cooperate with an Obamacare regulation that requires virtually all health care plans in the United States to cover contraceptives, sterilizations and abortion-inducing drugs and devices.

The Catholic Church teaches that contraceptives, sterilization and abortion are morally wrong.
