Dr. Brooke Worster and Dr. Nathan Handley of Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center – Jefferson Health shine a spotlight on cannabis use in palliative oncology.  They discuss guidance on dosing, legal concerns, and resources for oncologists with host Dr. John Sweetenham of the UT Southwestern Simmons Cancer Center. Transcript Dr. John Sweetenham: Hello, I'm John Sweetenham, Associate Director of Clinical Affairs at UT Southwestern's Harold C. Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center, and host of the ASCO Daily News podcast. Recent reports in oncology journals suggest that 20% to 40% of all patients with cancer use cannabis in some form during or after treatment to manage symptoms. However, a national survey of medical oncologists in 2018 found that 70% of oncologists did not feel equipped to make clinical recommendations regarding cannabis and only 46% recommended it clinically. Joining me to discuss cannabis use in palliative oncology are Dr. Brooke Worster, an associate professor and the director of supportive medicine at the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson Health. And Dr. Nathan Handley, a medical oncologist and an assistant professor who is also at the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center. Our full disclosures are available on our show notes and disclosures of all guests on the podcasts can be found on our transcripts and at asco.org/podcasts. Dr. Worster and Dr. Handley, thanks for coming onto the podcast today. Dr. Brooke Worster: Thanks for having us. Dr. Nathan Handley: Thank you. Dr. John Sweetenham: Dr. Worster, can you tell us how cannabis and cannabinoid-based medicines are used in palliative oncology and how prevalent this is? In addition, could you say a little about the use of cannabis in patients with cancer in the United States and how it compares with other countries? Dr. Brooke Worster: Yeah, absolutely. I think we are realizing more and more that cannabis or cannabinoid-based medications are used much more often than we as clinicians were aware. We just weren't asking our patients enough. And so, you mentioned other surveys about the kind of nationally sample representative of patients with cancer, we actually just also completed one that was a National Institutes of Health (NIH)-funded study, looking at cancer centers across the country and found similar rates that patients with cancer under the age of 65, at some point during treatment or survivorship, about 50% of them had tried cannabis. Interestingly, the largest growing segment of patients with cancer starting to use and inquire about cannabis are our [age] 65 and older patients. So, a quarter of them now report using it. And we actually found that 45% of patients over the age of 65 were interested but didn't feel comfortable having the conversation. Our country is kind of middle of the road in terms of what's accessible and what we use. Certainly, countries like Canada and some places in Europe, as well as Australia have a much more advanced marketplace as well as legislation and access to cannabis. And so, it's used more prevalently across kinds of the oncology spectrum, but there are still a lot of countries across the world where cannabis remains completely illegal. So, the United States is sort of in the middle. Dr. John Sweetenham: Thanks. You and Dr. Handley recently co-authored an article in the ASCO Daily News along with other colleagues. And in that, you write the patients most often want guidance about the formulation and dosing, which as I read your article seems to be somewhat elusive still, given the diversity and composition of the plant-based strains. You point out that understanding the onset of action and duration of effects are important first steps. Could you say a little bit more about this? Dr. Brooke Worster: Yeah, absolutely. I think when someone is trying this for the first time, or for the first time in years, understanding how and when they're going to feel the impact or the effects of primarily tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) but also cannabidiol (CBD) and other minor cannabinoids is important for them to be patient. We see that people that ingest either sublingual absorption or oral ingestion of products, don't recognize that it can take up to 60 to 75 minutes, even if you have other food in your stomach to really feel the effect. And then will kind of overdose in some ways or sort of re-dose and get more of an effect of the THC than they were looking for. Versus if someone is inhaling something, you're really going to feel that quite rapidly, right? Five minutes in terms of onset of action. The duration of effect for that is much less. You're talking 2 to 3 hours maximum for an inhalation form, versus 5 to 7 hours for something that's sublingual, or orally ingested. Dr. John Sweetenham: Thanks! Dr. Handley, we've read in your article and in others, that cannabis as a palliative treatment for patients is well-tolerated, safe, and an effective option to help them cope with malignancy-related symptoms. Can you comment a little on whether or not there is a downside to cannabis and cannabinoid use and whether there are negative interactions with other cancer treatments? And are there certain patients who should avoid the use of cannabis? Dr. Nathan Handley: I would say that in general cannabis can be very safe if taken carefully and appropriately, and ideally with some guidance from a qualified practitioner. But it is important to consider some of the risks and side effects that cannabis carries. So, I think the first point is that if smoked, or otherwise, inhaled, the smoke can have many of the same carcinogens that are found in tobacco smoke. It's also interesting because smoking of marijuana or cannabis and tobacco are highly correlated. And so, it can be difficult for us to kind of assess if there are increased pulmonary risks associated specifically with cannabis use compared to tobacco use. And there have been a number of large cross-sectional and longitudinal studies that haven't found this link between cannabis use and impaired pulmonary function tests or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or lung cancer. But there are still potential risks associated with inhalational forms. There's also some evidence that there may be higher cardiovascular risks among cannabis users, specifically in patients who have heavy cannabis exposure. So, there have been some studies that have looked at the role cannabis can play in thrombosis, inflammation, and atherosclerosis. There have been some case reports that have linked its use to myocardial infarctions and arrhythmias, cardiomyopathy, stroke, and arthritis. But those haven't necessarily been played out in large clinical trials yet. And so, essentially, if someone is at increased cardiovascular risk at baseline, if they're elderly, or if they have pre-existing cardiovascular conditions, these are things worth discussing with the patient. So, I wouldn't say that they're necessarily absolute contraindications. I think some of the more immediate side effects of cannabis are also worth discussing with patients. And these are often related to the amount or the concentration of THC that is present in the preparation. A THC ingestion can result in a number of adverse side effects. There can be impaired concentration, impaired spatial relationships, memory can sometimes be affected. And in some rare cases, you can have increased anxiety, paranoia, or even psychosis. And so, there are not again, strong studies demonstrating a distinct correlation between cannabis use and psychiatric disorders. This is an area that merits further investigation still, and those risks likely vary based on the type of the product, the potency, the composition, if it's synthetic, if it's illicit, but we do have some hesitation about using cannabis in patients who have severe pre-existing mental health conditions like psychosis or schizophrenia, or something like that. On the issue of interactions with certain cancer treatments, I think one thing that patients often wonder is if cannabis can be used to treat cancer? And there is some interesting in vitro data and some in vivo data to suggest that cannabinoids can modulate tumor growth. But the data here is very limited. And so, really what we say is that more research needs to be done in this area. I think the other area of interest is there's some preliminary data, suggesting that patients who are on immunotherapy may have a reduced response to that treatment if they're taking cannabinoids, but these data are also very early. And so, we don't make any clinical decisions based on it at this point. Dr. John Sweetenham: Okay. Thank you. Another area, which I think is concerning certainly to some oncologists and other physicians is the legal issues surrounding the use of medical cannabis. And the core issue there, of course, is the contradiction in many cases between federal and state laws. Dr. Worster, can you tell us a little bit more about this and how oncologists can inform themselves of these issues and perhaps feel a little bit more comfortable about prescribing or recommending medical cannabis? Dr. Brooke Worster: Absolutely. I think at the crux of this issue, you're spot on. I mean, it's muddy. And if you look at the map of our country, the state-by-state variation changes year to year. So, I think one of the biggest things for all clinicians to recognize is that there have been challenges to the legality of recommending, we're not prescribing because that is still federally illegal, but certainly recommending cannabis to patients. There have been legal and court challenges that have worked their way up to federal courts, and have always supported that this is a right to free speech and well within your protected rights as a clinician to have a conversation with your patient along the lines of all kinds of other lifestyle choices we talk about with patients. So, there's no risk in terms of having the conversation, per se, or guiding patients into the space. Where I would tell people to familiarize themselves is really the intricacies of your own state's laws, as well as where a patient may be living if you're seeing them across state lines. One really great resource for this is the National Consortium of State Legislatures. They do a very good job and keep very up to date on a state-by-state basis in terms of what's legal, what conditions, how to access it, if there's reciprocity between states or not, if you can bring product across state lines, who can access it, all of the things that our patients are concerned about, and thus, bringing very valid questions to us that we want to be able to kind of help support them in this conversation. Dr. John Sweetenham: Yeah. Thank you! You know, another issue that you do bring up in your recent article is that of pain management, which of course is a very important component of cancer care in general. But studies in the Journal of Clinical Oncology and elsewhere have recently found there's been a sharp decline in access to opioids among patients with terminal cancer, and some patients have had to turn to hospital emergency departments for pain control. The decline in access has been in part a response to the opioid crisis in the U.S. But do you think this raises an important question about whether we're doing enough to proactively address pain management with some of our patients, Dr. Worster? Dr. Brooke Worster: That's always a really important conversation that we aren't talking about enough. I think, truly, certainly, the pendulum has swung very far to the other side. And in some ways, this is beneficial, because as more and more of our patients with cancer are living into survivorship, we have certainly seen where iatrogenically, we have created dependency and substance misuse issues in the past, and it continues to happen. But I think that we need better ways to have honest conversations with our patients about both. What nuances to their pain exist? Pain is not pain is not pain, right? So, the etiology of their pain is important. And the way that we treat it shouldn't all be the same—neuropathic versus visceral versus a post-operative or inflammatory type of pain certainly should be looked at differently. I think access to opioids is critical for patients with cancer, although it really shouldn't be the only tool in our toolbox. Some of the work that we've done recently, it's interesting. There remains a wide racial gap in terms of access to opioids, as well, as we know this but less well-controlled pain in certain groups of patients with cancer, primarily minority Black and Hispanic patients versus White counterparts. And some of that has to do with the underlying responsiveness to opioids for various people, but also, how much are we talking about it? How much are we having the conversation? Is cannabis a helpful adjuvant, there? Are opioids something that are helpful? It should be talked about and continually readdressed. Dr. John Sweetenham: Thank you. Dr. Handley, Dr. Wooster just mentioned there in her previous comments, the issue of having honest conversations with our patients in the realm of pain control. But on a broader kind of perspective, do you have any recommendations on how to broach conversations with patients about cannabis use as a potential option for symptom management? Dr. Nathan Handley: Yeah, I think that's a really important question. These can be very difficult conversations. Cannabis use is something that is socially, culturally, and regulatory charged. It's very complex. And so, it can be a challenge to have these conversations. I think some general principles about how to effectively engage others, whether they're patients or friends or colleagues can be really helpful. So, I often reflect on this dictum from Stephen Covey, who is the author of this book called, The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. In this book, he describes the fifth habit as being, “Seek first to understand then to be understood.” So, basically, what he's saying is if your goal is to motivate others, you have to understand where they're coming from before you can meaningfully affect their behavior. So, this sentiment is really a core principle behind the technique called motivational interviewing, which can be very useful to help motivate behavior change in patients and understand where patients are coming from, at the start of a conversation even. So, this technique is really built on 4 foundational principles. And those are acceptance, which is essentially empathizing with the patient, recognizing that they are an important participant in their own care. They're really the driver of their own care. Compassion, which is really emphasizing the well-being of the patient first and foremost. Collaboration, which is partnering with the patient, and not necessarily having a paternalistic relationship with them. And then curiosity, which is about understanding a patient's behaviors and motivations in a non-judgmental way. And so, I think this is really important because it can lead to openness when having a conversation with a patient. So, this has been summed up more simply as “Don't tell. Ask.” So, the idea with motivational interviewing, is you need to be open to understanding where a patient is, and this approach can be taken with 4 steps. So, first, you, you just listen, there's interesting data about how clinicians and physicians spend a lot of time talking in interactions with patients, and not as much time listening. And then we may have a tendency to jump in very quickly and be uncomfortable with silence. And so, this is just a real opportunity to just be open to patients and hear them to understand what pre-existing perceptions they may have. And so, it's hard to have a conversation with a patient about cannabis, if you think that they are going to be very open to it. And it turns out that 5 minutes into the conversation, they have some really deeply held reservations about the use of cannabis. So, first, you engage and listen to them to understand where they're coming from. And then you can focus. You can focus specifically on what the patient's goals are with respect to treatment, with something—in this case with cannabis. What are they hoping to get out of it? Is it improved pain management? Is it some other symptom that they're seeking? And then you can kind of evoke, this next step is evoking what their motivations are? Why do they want to improve this particular component of their treatment? Why did they want to feel better in this way? What are they hoping to achieve? And then, once you've kind of gotten through that groundwork, you can then plan together about how best to approach, in this case, cannabis use, in a way that is mutually agreeable, you can come to a plan together. And this approach epitomizes the concept of shared decision making where this is a conversation that happens together and between 2 people with the interest of the patient kept, first and foremost. Dr. John Sweetenham: Great advice. Thank you! Dr. Worster, just before we close up, you did mention earlier 1 potential resource for oncologists who need guidance on how to safely use cannabis for palliative pain management. Do you have any other recommendations in terms of resources that can be helpful to them? Dr. Brooke Worster: Yeah, absolutely. I wish there were a lot more here. And truth be told, we're still working hard to certainly develop the body of research and then disseminate it in terms of education. But if people are interested, there are increasing amounts of continuing medical education (CME) options that are out there. Each state that has medically legal or medically approved cannabis use on their state websites will have recommended or required depending on which state, I practice in Pennsylvania, and there are required CME courses that you need to take. But all of the states have different ones that are either recommended or required, and that's certainly an easy place to start in terms of some quality education. Thanks to the work that you and others are doing. I think it's certainly coming out through various oncology publications and multimedia access and things like that. And we also have, and some other academic centers around the country now have, online certificate and Master's programs that if people are really interested, they can kind of dive in and take courses or even get a certificate in cannabis medicine or cannabis science, things like that, to help them feel a lot more educated and informed. Dr. John Sweetenham: Well, I'd like to thank you both for sharing your insights with us on the podcast today. And also, for the valuable research that you've been doing on this topic. This is something that I'm sure is going to gain increasing importance to us all in elevating the awareness of this among the oncology community is really important. Thank you for the work that you're doing. Dr. Brooke Worster: Absolutely. Thank you for having us. Dr. Nathan Handley: Yes, thank you. A pleasure!

That's what being the balance means to us at this moment. A tv show aptly named “Atlanta” gets all of the love for the characters and the storyline. And can we take a moment to say, Shari is CAUGHT up on the episodes, people! Issues centered around race, blackness, traditions, tragedy, self-reflection, and introspection are gift-wrapped in the script and delivery. Don't mind us... We're just a couple of fans gushing over the way the episodes are presented. Watch it for the first time or catch up on a few episodes from this season. Time well spent. You're welcome. We'd be remised if we didn't check in with each other after the violent events over the weekend. Once again, a mass shooting is causing us to consider our lives and how they intersect with others. Grief and anguish sit with all of us as we process what's unfolding. And we're grateful that we spoke to our dope friend, Ti, to ground us. Sadness is real and you have every right to feel it. But his story is a testament to transforming the trauma and finding authentic purpose after a life-changing loss. What an incredible testimony of honoring your person, their wishes, and their memory. These dope friends have shown up and shown out this season! Thank you to each one for being vulnerable and sharing your truths.

What is the difference between TMJ and TMJD? - Dr. Jason Jones Elizabeth City NC, Chiropractor A lot of times, patients with jaw pain ask me, “Doctor Jason, What is the difference between TMJ and TMJD?” Well, it can be confusing for people to understand some medical terms. But I will tell you about the difference between TMJ and TMJD in this piece, perhaps you also want to know. Firstly, note that TMJ stands for temporomandibular joint, while TMJD stands for temporomandibular joint dysfunction. Literally, TMJ refers to the joint itself and TMD refers to pain, inflammation or disorders of that joint. Sometimes, people use TMJ and TMD interchangeably, but there is a clear-cut difference between the two. Let's take a deeper dive to understand these two terms better. What is TMJ – The Temporomandibular Joint? The TMJ is a delicate joint that connect your jaw to your cheekbones. This joint is located just next to each of your ears and it allows you open your mouth, speak, chew, and even yawn. The TMJs are special because they have a unique hinging and sliding mobility allowing your jaws to move to the right and left, move forward and backward, and open. TMJs are two – one on each side of your head. You can check out their functions by placing a finger in front of each ear, and then open and close your jaw. If the joints are in good shape, you will notice the muscles moving over the lower jaw up and down and side to side. A small cartilage disc encased by a dense fibrous capsule is also located in the joint in front of your ear. This prevents your jawbone from grinding against your skull bones. The proper function of the TMJs depends on each other and on the teeth, since these joints are connected to the jaw.  However, due to the delicate nature of this joint, it is prone to becoming inflamed, irritated, or damaged. Usually when this happens, you may have issues with opening your mouth, speaking, or chewing. This is often accompanied with pain and discomfort. What is TMJD – Temporomandibular Joint Disorder? TMJD refers to the various disorders that affect the TMJ. Several factors could cause damage to the TMJ, including: Excessive gum chewing Nightly teeth grinding Injury Inflammation Infection Deterioration due to autoimmune diseases like arthritis Some common symptoms of TMJD include pain in the jaw and face, tenderness of the jaw muscles, locking or clicking of the jaw when moving it, difficulty chewing, and muscle spasms. Sometimes, you may experience earaches, headaches, dizziness, and even back and neck pain. However, according to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, TMD disorders are classified into three categories, namely: Internal derangement of the joint involving dislocated jaw, displaced disc, or injury to the condyle/joint Pain in the muscles that control jaw function Arthritis-related issue that are inflammatory/degenerative joint disorders                                                                                                                                         So there you have it, the clear-cut difference between TMJ and TMJD. Do not confuse both terms anymore. You can visit Dr. Jason Jones at our chiropractic office at Elizabeth City, NC, to learn about natural solutions for TMJD and how alignment and soft tissue work helps to resolve the problem.

Yet, government restrictions on the infant formula industry may have played a part in the current crisis, as regulations created a bottleneck. And as this takes place, the U.S. government is allegedly providing infant formula for facilities processing the mass migration into the United States. Meanwhile, the National Institutes of Health is acknowledging that secret payments received by its scientists, including Dr. Anthony Fauci, and leadership do look like conflicts of interest. This comes as more evidence emerges on ties between the NIH and virus labs in China; and amid new reports detailing how the Chinese leadership planned to use biological weapons in a hypothetical third world war against the United States.

When calming a crying baby, try playing this baby sleep sound. Parents, give yourself a break by using this relaxing noise to soothe your colicky infant. This is a great tool to help ensure quality sleep for your baby. White noise creates a peaceful environment for your child that mimics the sounds of the womb and may reduces their stress. It can help them calm down while lulling them to sleep. And, with your child peacefully napping, it will help you get some rest. This 8 hour sleep sound is a handy tool for any new mother or father. The whole family will appreciate this white noise sound once the colicky infant is happily sleeping and everyone else is getting the rest they deserve.

It's recommended to play the sound at least a few feet from where your infant is sleeping and to keep the volume no louder than the sound of a soft shower. Parents can download an app to turn their smartphone into a sound level meter.

Get early access to our latest psychology lectures: http://bit.ly/new-talks5 For patients with trans-generational trauma histories that include oppression, war, slavery, genocide, and immigration to a new culture, it is important to develop treatment plans to address trans-generational wounding and adaptations. How does the clinician know when to focus on trans-generational trauma? This presentation will help clinicians locate transmissions by: 1) attending to the affective quality ad content of the patient's narrative; 2) understanding symptoms of trans-generational trauma; 3) learning how to do generational genograms: and 4) investigating the presence and nature of their tribal narratives. Once the clinician suspects that symptoms are related to trans-generational trauma, a series of interventions are presented to expand history taking, locate generational themes and resources, and process along the lines of the generational trauma/themes. The processing leads to a coherent, regulated generational/tribal narrative from which the patient can move forward and interrupt the transmission of trauma to the next generation. -- Dr. Karen Alter-Reid is a clinical psychologist who specializes in working with adults struggling with post-traumatic stress injuries. She trains mental health clinicians in EMDR Therapy, a modality of treatment for PTSD. She is Faculty, Senior Consultant and Trainer at the National Institute for the Psychotherapies' Integrative Trauma Program in New York City. She has published articles and book chapters on her work with first responders, therapists and on clinical treatment of trans-generational trauma.

Depression is one of the most common mental health conditions in the United States that affects an estimated 17.3 million adults and 3.2 million adolescents according to the National Institute of Mental Health. Research shows that gay and bisexual men are at a higher risk for: Major depression, Bipolar disorder, and, Generalized anxiety disorder, and are more likely than heterosexual men to attempt suicide. In today's episode, host Calan Breckon unpacks the heaviness around depression with guest and therapist, Jacob Monkarsh (LMFT & CGP). Together they explore questions like: What is depression and how does it affect a person?Is it possible for someone to be depressed without knowing it? What are the signs and symptoms someone should be aware of?What are the biggest triggers for gay men struggling with depression?How can someone currently struggling with depression work to get out of the cycle?How can people best support someone struggling with depression? During the episode, Jacob asked a very important question concerning gay men and our childhood experiences: "What happens when someone can't connect with themself?" and as children, we often can't connect with ourselves fully once we realize something is "different" about us and we begin hiding who we truly are, but is that creating disassociation within us and our community?

Nonprofit Watchdog Uncovers $350 Million in Secret Payments to Fauci, Collins, Others at NIH An estimated $350 million in undisclosed royalties were paid to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and hundreds of its scientists, including the agency's recently departed director, Dr. Francis Collins, and Dr. Anthony Fauci, according to a nonprofit government watchdog. “We estimate that up to $350 million in royalties from third parties were paid to NIH scientists during the fiscal years between 2010 and 2020,” Open the Books CEO Adam Andrzejewski told reporters in a telephone news conference on May 9. “We draw that conclusion because, in the first five years, there has been $134 million that we have been able to quantify of top-line numbers that flowed from third-party payers, meaning pharmaceutical companies or other payers, to NIH scientists.” The first five years, from 2010 to 2014, constitute 40 percent of the total, he said. “We now know that there are 1,675 scientists that received payments during that period, at least one payment. In fiscal year 2014, for instance, $36 million was paid out and that is on average $21,100 per scientist,” Andrzejewski said. “We also find that during this period, leadership at NIH was involved in receiving third-party payments. For instance, Francis Collins, the immediate past director of NIH, received 14 payments. Dr. Anthony Fauci received 23 payments and his deputy, Clifford Lane, received eight payments.” See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

We’re a week away at this point! We’ll be joined by Political Analyst, Delano Squires, who’s made appearances on The Tucker Carlson Show, and Jason Whitlock, you get the idea, he knows his stuff, and Pastor and friend of the show, Pastor Jeff Durbin of Apologia Church. The show takes place May 19th, and tickets are only $20! So sign up right now at crosspolitic.com/libertytour. So, as Pastor Toby mentioned in his News Brief yesterday, in the wake of the Supreme Court Opinions appearing to dismantle Roe V. Wade, protests erupted in Washington D.C. outside of Supreme Court justices homes… I’m sure you’ve seen the disturbing videos… well now the tables have turned, as Pro-abortion activists are protesting outside Nancy Pelosi's house accusing her of being 'complicit' in destroying abortion rights. https://www.theblaze.com/news/abortion-pelosi-home-protest-abortion#toggle-gdpr Pro-abortion activists turned their vitriol on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and blamed her and the Democratic leadership for the expected overturn of the landmark Roe v. Wade decision. A small group of protesters demonstrated outside Pelosi's palatial mansion in San Francisco, California, on Tuesday. Video on social media showed a leader of the group vocalizing their fury… https://twitter.com/i/status/1524194201948278786 - Play whole video Boooo…. Boy those seven protesters were giving it their all there! The protest appeared to be organized by a far-left pro-abortion group called "Ruth Sent Us" that demanded Pelosi investigate the Supreme Court justices in order to "save" abortion. They accused her of being "careless and cowardly" in her leadership and blamed her for not doing enough to prevent Brett Kavanaugh from being nominated to the Supreme Court. The accusations against Pelosi paralleled those made against President Joe Biden by many on social media who accused him of not doing enough to protect abortion rights. Left-wing protesters have also targeted the homes of several members of the Supreme Court for protests, including those of Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, a Democrat, meanwhile called on other Democrats to pass laws and file lawsuits at the state level to protect abortion ahead of the Roe. v. Wade decision expected to be made by the Supreme Court in several months. This is not the first time Pelosi's home has been a targeted by left-wing protesters. In Jan. 2021, protesters vandalized her home with graffiti and left a severed pig's head on her sidewalk. Well isn’t that lovely? I’m sure that Nancy will spin a fine yarn about the Roe V Wade situation… Now, I have a question for you… Did you know that more than 75% of those raised in evangelical, Presbyterian, and Reformed churches don’t pursue any kind of Christian higher education? Surprising isn’t it. Cornerstone Work & Worldview Institute is seeking to provide a new, exciting, and affordable option for Christians. Their mission is to build Kingdom culture in the workplace by equipping their students in a Trinitarian worldview and vocational competencies. Their low-cost full-time program offers integrative course modules, internships, and mentoring so their students can finish debt-free with vocational preparation, a robust faith, and financial potential to build strong godly families and homes rooted in their communities and churches long-term.

FDA Commissioner Claims ‘Misinformation’ Is Now America’s Leading Cause Of Death https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/robert-spencer/2022/05/10/fda-commissioner-claims-misinformation-is-now-americas-leading-cause-of-death-n1596756 According to PJ Media, The Leftist establishment is waging all-out war against the freedom of speech under the guise of combating what it claims is “misinformation” and “disinformation.” Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton warned us against the supposedly rapidly spreading scourge of “disinformation,” and just days later, Biden’s Homeland Security Department unveiled its sinister Disinformation Governance Board, with an ill-defined and shifting scope of responsibilities. The Board, however, could be just the beginning. On Sirius XM’s Doctor Radio Reports Friday, Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Commissioner Robert Califf said, “I have been telling Congress that misinformation is the leading cause of death.” Well then, by all means, we must outlaw it immediately! On CNN Saturday, Califf doubled down, again warning against “misinformation” in such apocalyptic terms that he appeared to be signaling that Biden’s handlers are working on still more speech restrictions. https://edition.cnn.com/videos/health/2022/05/07/fda-robert-califf-intv-misinformation-death-sot-vpx.cnn As you heard there, when he was asked about treating Asked to explain why he thought “misinformation” was the leading cause of death in America today, Califf immediately retreated, admitting that he had no data to establish his claim and tacitly admitting that it was just a Leftist talking point… in short, the interview should’ve stopped right there… “I have no data to support this next dumb thing I’m about to say.” Oh you have no data for this? Okay, end of discussion. Who is spreading misinformation here? That noted right-wing outlet, the New York Times, reported on Feb. 28 about a new study that didn’t quite agree with Califf’s rosy picture of the vaccines’ efficacy. As the omicron variant surged, the Times stated, “the vaccine’s effectiveness against hospitalization declined to 73 percent from 85 percent in the older children. In the younger children, effectiveness dropped to 48 percent from 100 percent. But because few children were hospitalized, these estimates have wide margins of error. The numbers for protection from infection are more reliable. Vaccine effectiveness against infection in the older children decreased to 51 percent from 66 percent. But in the younger children, it dropped sharply to just 12 percent from 68 percent.” But as far as Robert Califf is concerned, if we silence such inconvenient data and only allow the FDA’s line to flood the airwaves, many lives will be saved. We’ll be living in an authoritarian police state that silences dissenting views, but when has the Left ever been worried about that? Well Ohio seems to be worried about stuff like this, as a bill has been presented, that would ban Facebook, Twitter from censoring users… color me intrigued… https://fox8.com/news/ohio-bill-would-ban-facebook-twitter-from-censoring-users/ According to Fox 8 News in Columbus, One year after YouTube removed from its site a video in which an Ohio attorney touted lies about COVID-19, eight Republicans approved a bill to counter what they called Big Tech’s suppression of free speech. In an 8-4 vote Thursday, the Civil Justice Committee approved House Bill 441 to prohibit social media platforms from censoring expression based on a user’s “viewpoint” – not including speech that’s already deemed illegal under federal law, like harassment or shouting “fire” in a crowded theater. The bill joins an increasingly national discourse concerned with the uptick in social media sites deplatforming or restricting users – like the permanent suspension of former President Donald Trump’s Twitter account due to what Twitter says, was an incitement of violence… Though I’m sure we’ve all heard by now that Elon Musk said that he would reverse the ban on Trump, calling it “unmoral”. Though, with him not being saved, what does he mean by unmoral? Who says? Anyways. “By preventing Big Tech companies from continuing to engage in viewpoint discrimination, we hope to protect the free exchange of ideas and information in Ohio,” Rep. Scott Wiggam (R-Wooster) said in his testimony before the Civil Justice Committee. While the bill does not equip the state with the power to enforce the censorship ban, it does allow individual Ohioans to file a civil suit against social media companies with more than 50 million U.S. users that block, remove or restrict them from using their site.

The report from OpenTheBooks.com said the royalty payments, including at least 23 to Fauci and 14 to his former boss, Collins, were paid out between 2010 and 2020. Government scientists got the payments for being credited as “co-inventors” of various treatments and pharmaceutical products, according to the report. OpenTheBooks.com co-founder and CEO Adam Andrzejewski wrote, “Because those payments enrich the agency and its scientists, each and every royalty payment could be a potential conflict of interest and needs disclosure, NIH is a revolving door of tens of billions of dollars in government grant-making coupled with hundreds of millions of dollars in private – non-transparent – royalty payments.” The report paints an incestuous picture of the NIH doling out $30 billion a year in grants to some 56,000 recipients in Big Pharma, research institutes and other entities, with money flowing back to the secretive agency’s scientists and senior management in the form of huge royalty payments. It is not yet known how much the payments to Fauci, who is the U.S. government highest-salaried employee at $456,028, totaled. In addition to his salary and whatever royalty payments he has received, Fauci last year won a $1 million prize from the Dan David Foundation for “speaking truth to power.” Collins resigned as NIH director in December after leading the agency for 12 years. Fauci is the longtime head of NIH’s National Institute for Allergies and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), and also serves as chief medical adviser to President Joe Biden. OpenTheBooks.com made the $350 million estimate by extrapolating from documents received as part of a federal lawsuit against NIH. So far, the group has uncovered evidence of more than 22,100 royalty payments totaling nearly $134 million paid from 2009-2014 to 1,700 NIH scientists. The group is awaiting another 1,800 pages of royalty disclosures which would cover the period from 2015-2020.
