The Vaccination Debate: Today we investigate one of the biggest medical controversies of our time: vaccines. There’s little dispute about this much-- vaccines save many lives, and rarely, they injure or kill. A special federal vaccine court has paid out billions for injuries from brain damage to death. But not for the form of brain injury we call autism. Now—we have remarkable new information: a respected pro-vaccine medical expert used by the federal government to debunk the vaccine-autism link, says vaccines can cause autism after all. He claims he told that to government officials long ago, but they kept it secret.

Growing Healthy Kids - By Deirdre Imus, February 14, 2019 - We do so much as parents to protect our kids from harm throughout their lives. We hold their hands as they cross the street, tell them not to run near the edge of the pool, and strap a helmet on their head before each bike ride.

Imus Ranch Foundation 

With the closing of The Imus Ranch For Kids with Cancer, The Imus Ranch Foundation was formed to donate 100% of all donations previously devoted to The Imus Ranch for Kids with Cancer to various other charities whose work and missions compliment those of the ranch. The initial donation from The Imus Ranch Foundation was awarded to Tackle Kids Cancer, a program of The HackensackUMC Foundation and the New York Giants.  In addition, once the Imus Ranch for Kids with Cancer is sold, 100% of those funds will be contributed to The Imus Ranch Foundation.

John LeBoutillier Gives His Fellow Harvard Alum a Bad Time

Here’s why we like John LeBoutillier: he’s a prepared, informed, and insightful guest. The reason? Absolute and total fear. He knows the I-Man will “always find the weakness” if a guest is ill-equipped.

As such, LeBoutillier, a former Congressman who now writes for Newsmax, told Imus that the House needs 216 votes to pass the health care bill, a number they’re not going to reach anytime soon.

Unlike other bills, the House has no power to change this one and must pass the same version as the Senate. “They will never call a vote unless they have the 216,” LeBoutiller surmised.

If the bill doesn’t pass, he said, “It means that the public thinks the status quo of health care is better than what the changes would be.” One of those changes—fining people who don’t want to buy health care at all—goes entirely against an Obama campaign promise.

Politically, LeBoutillier has never seen a President not only shoot himself in the foot, as Obama has done by insisting on health care reform, but “take a 50-calibur machine gun out and blow both legs off, and blow his party’s legs off.”

Much like some of his predecessors, Obama’s obsession with one single issue could cause implosion, as LeBoutillier sees it.  LBJ fixated on Vietnam; Nixon obsessed over what his enemies had on him; Clinton compulsively seduced women; and George W. Bush couldn’t shake the urge to off Saddam Hussein, telling members of Congress to support the war in Iraq because, “He tried to kill my dad!”

“Every one of these Presidents had an obsession that took them down,” LeBoutillier concluded. “Obama is obsessed with health care.”

The country, on the other hand, is obsessed with jobs—with creating them, finding them, holding on to them. Obama ignored what LeBoutiller called “a reminder” of this fact, when Massachusetts sent a Republican to the Senate earlier this year. Despite his book smarts, many are questioning Obama’s common sense, and that of his administration.

“What we don’t know and won’t know for years to come is, are they allowed to walk into the Oval Office and say, ‘Mr. President, we are off track,’” LeBoutillier said, referring to Obama’s top advisors. “And does he listen to that?”

LeBoutillier also faulted Obama’s youth. “I think in your forties, you really haven’t lived much and had a lot of things happen to you,” he said. “Rejection and heartbreak teaches us things as we grow older.”

Whether Obama health care obsession becomes law or not, LeBoutiller predicted a total wipe out for the Democrats come November.

Stay tuned.
