Imus in the Morning

Deirdre's Corner

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.

What's in our Food/Can we Sustain? - A few weeks ago, The New York Times published an article instructing readers how to eat more sustainably to positively affect the planet. It largely cited a recent report from the EAT-Lancet Commission on Food, Planet and Health, which was compiled by 37 experts from around the world with the goal of helping people understand how to eat not only a healthy diet, but one that won’t destroy the environment and will improve the health of people in rich and poor nations alike.

EPA Must Ban Roundup (Glyphosate) Forever - By Deirdre Imus, May 13, 2019 - Within the last year, two lawsuits have found the chemical giant Monsanto liable for causing cancer in people who used their product Roundup, one of the world’s most popular weed killers. In the first lawsuit, which was decided last summer in San Francisco, a jury ordered Monsanto to pay $289 million to the groundskeeper at a school who had been diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma. More recently, this past March another San Francisco jury found Monsanto liable for yet another person getting non-Hodgkins lymphoma, and told them to pay that man $80 million in damages.

Grilled Watermelon Caprice - Recipe from Ellen Troyer and the Biosyntryx Staff - This sensational recipe is from a charming food blog called How Sweet Eats. We highly recommend Jessica Merchant's delightful blog and her cookbooks written for people who seriously love food.

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.
