"She Never Looks Back": Inside Elizabeth
Holmes´s Chilling Final Months at Theranos

Vanity Fair, by Nick Bilton

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/21/2019 12:07:40 PM

Elizabeth Holmes appeared to know exactly what she needed to do. It was September 2017, and the situation was dire. Theranos, the blood-testing company that she had dreamed up more than a decade ago, during her freshman year at Stanford, was imploding before her very eyes. John Carreyrou, an investigative reporter at The Wall Street Journal, had spent nearly two years detailing the start-up’s various misdeeds—questioning the veracity of its lab results and the legitimacy of its core product, the Edison, a small, consumer blood-testing device that supposedly used a drop of blood to perform hundreds of medical tests.

Did she make political donations? She going to need some friends in high places, or she’ll time in the clink, maybe along with the BOD.

Many truly sociopathic/psychopathic persons stab their way to the top of large corporations where they receive fawning praise from people who don´t know them from squat. There´s not much difference between many corporate CEOs and con-men in Federal lockup.

This lady is a total fraud. There is tremendous money in clinical lab testing which is how she sucked in so much venture capital and wooed prominent people to her board. Greed can fog some peoples clear thinking. Surprised it took as long as it did to reveal her fraud. I suspect that she cheated on proficiency testing where unknown samples are sent to all labs before they can begin offering services to the public. I Would also like to hear from whoever first inspected this lab and let them have their license to operate.

Laboratory technology was what I studied in College and I spent a few early years working in the lab. After reading this article, I´m amazed how she was able to convince people to back her ideas with little of no scientific studies to substantiate its veracity. It was all hypothetical and bogus. She´s right up there with Bernie Madoff.

I actually am on the board of a biotech company. A couple of years ago, when she went to Theranos a fellow board member actually said “...boy, if we could just get her as our CEO...”Thank goodness it never happened but she had quite the PR support before her downfall.

Read "Bad Blood" a while back. Elizabeth Holmes´ major talent was playing up to a pack of old men (George Schultz, Henry Kissinger, Rupert Mudoch, Steve Burd of Safeway, Jay Rosen of Walgreen´s among others) who dreamed of getting in her pants. And oh yes, Bill Clinton was a fan.....

i wish i could say that this is unbelievable but it is not. the simple comparative testing being under control of holmes and her shucking and jiving on the results is one o the most egregious elements of the lack of oversight.

‘I’m a political prisoner’: Mouthy Martha Mitchell
was the George Conway of the Nixon era
Washington Post, by Gillian Brockell    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 3/21/2019 4:57:00     Post Reply
In psychology circles, there’s an unofficial concept called “the Martha Mitchell effect.” It’s the tendency to diagnose someone as mentally ill simply because the story they tell is so bizarre, without checking whether the bizarre story is in fact true. That’s what happened to Martha Mitchell, the outspoken wife of President Richard M. Nixon’s attorney general, John Mitchell. She was dismissed as “crazy” for her wild claims about the Nixon administration and issued a public ultimatum to her husband to choose her or the president. This week, another marital spat gripped Washington as President Trump tweeted insults about George Conway,

Human nature being what it is, many candidates run for office the same way they did the last time. Take the 15th Democratic presidential candidate, former Rep. Robert Francis O’Rourke. When Mr. O’Rourke ran for the U.S. Senate in Texas in 2018, he was an energetic, charismatic campaigner who visited all 254 counties in the state. He gave inspirational speeches to Democrats, heavy on appeals for unity and optimism but generally devoid of substance. He relied on breathlessly positive press coverage while adroitly using social media to establish a personal channel to supporters. He raised $80 million,

Ralph Nader Takes on Boeing

Ralph Nader’s latest and most unlikely anti-corporate campaign focuses on a crash site in Ethiopia. That’s where Samya Rose Stumo, a 24-year-old public-health researcher and the daughter of Mr. Nader’s niece, died along with 156 others when Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 went down. Her parents and a brother spent last week visiting the site, beseeching investigators, Red Cross workers and the carrier’s chief executive in an ultimately vain effort to retrieve any remains or belongings. Now Mr. Nader, the high-profile consumer crusader in the twilight of his career, is determined to translate his family’s anguish into action.

OLATHE, Kan.—Soon after Jim Hildenbrand arrived in Avignon Villa Homes, a community for older adults in a Kansas City suburb, the homeowner association disputed the placement of his satellite dish. It cited him for parking cars in his driveway overnight and placing a St. Francis statue in a flower bed. He was later written up for a dead cat in a window well—which Mr. Hildenbrand suspects was planted by a neighborhood enemy. Things went downhill from there. After he installed a decorative, shin-high wall around a plant bed on the side of his house,

SAN FRANCISCO—California’s economy is adding jobs far faster than affordable places to live, forcing some employers to leave the state as they expand. Companies that move from California have historically left behind its diverse industries, renowned public universities and balmy climate for states with lower taxes and lighter regulation. But now home prices and rents, higher on average than anywhere else in the country, have surged to the top of concerns for businesses and workers. For employers, “we’re at a crisis stage,”

Trump gets a U.S. Supreme Court
victory on immigration detention

WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court on Tuesday endorsed the U.S. government’s authority to detain immigrants awaiting deportation anytime - potentially even years - after they have completed prison terms for criminal convictions, handing President Donald Trump a victory as he pursues hardline immigration policies. The court ruled 5-4 along ideological lines, with its conservative justices in the majority and its liberal justices dissenting, that federal authorities could pick up such immigrants and place them into indefinite detention anytime, not just immediately after they finish prison sentences.

The Jew Who Died for Ilhan Omar
Wall Street Journal, by Gary Palmer    Original Article

Rep. Ilhan Omar, a freshman Democrat from Minnesota, has become widely known for her attacks on supporters of Israel. Ms. Omar is a naturalized citizen whose Somali refugee family settled in the U.S. when she was a teenager. Tens of thousands of Somali refugees relocated to the U.S.—some 25,000 in the Minneapolis area—to escape the starvation, famine and civil war that turned Somalia into a lawless, failed state in the early 1990s. Another name is worth recognition and remembrance, especially among Somali refugees: Lawrence Freedman.

The Temptation of the Devils River

It has long been a mystery how, exactly, the Devils River got its name—and what, exactly, happened to the apostrophe. But the leading theory will ring true to anyone who has attempted to navigate it. Though early Spanish explorers named the river after Saint Peter, it’s said that the settlers who followed in their footsteps regarded the waterway and its surrounding terrain as so forbidding that they thought it could have been carved by Lucifer himself. And so the gatekeeper to heaven gave way to the ruler of hell. Given that grim reputation, that off-putting name, and the river’s remote

There are just nine steps from freedom
to socialism to societal breakdown
Fox News, by Tom Becarro    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 3/17/2019 9:51:25     Post Reply
Talk of socialism is suddenly everywhere. The journey from a free society to socialism, however, does not occur overnight. It’s a stepped process that begins slowly and ends with a rush. Here are those steps: Step 1. Massive Government Spending. Socialist states have government at the center of their economies and feature enormous spending programs. In early 1990s Sweden often cited as a socialist state, government spending exceeded 70 percent of its economy. Under President Jefferson, government spending was approximately 2 to 3 percent of the economy. Today, we are at 36 percent. Sweden, now walking away from socialism,

Do Democrats Hear Echoes of 1972 Today?

The scenario sounds familiar: Democrats, facing a Republican presidential candidate widely reviled among the party’s rank-and-file, nominate a seemingly safe establishment figure to keep their hold on the White House. To the party’s shock and horror, their establishment figure loses the general election. The reviled Republican becomes president. The party’s liberal activists seethe at the loss, arguing that their party’s establishment centrists stole the nomination at their convention and then failed to produce. In reaction, they push the party to the left and, four years later, propel a decidedly liberal candidate to the nomination.

The Democratic Crackup

Americans love a good political brawl, and that’s terrible news for Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Her Democratic Party has commenced a full throw-down—with itself. Few things have benefited Democrats more in the past few years than the Donald Trump show. The president likes to be the center of attention, and the media likes nothing more than to oblige him. This dynamic helped make the 2018 election a referendum on the man himself rather than his policies, and that made Mrs. Pelosi speaker of the House. Democrats envisioned the same dynamic helping them win the White House in 2020.

Former interim Democratic National Committee chair Donna Brazile was full of posthumous praise for the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) on Wednesday’s edition of Fox News’ Special Report with Bret Baier. The context was President Trump’s renewed criticism of McCain after a newly-released deposition showed how deeply McCain was involved in the fraudulent “Russia dossier” that has been used to attack the administration and divide the nation. Brazile, who Fox News recently hired as a contributor, began by criticizing the president for speaking ill of the dead. She then continued: “John McCain leaves a legacy. He leaves a legacy of

The battle over the admissions standards at New York City’s elite public high schools has heated up again. After having failed to change the standards last year, Mayor Bill de Blasio is back at it, this time with some backup from celebrity freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. As usual, their impassioned pleas about the lack of black and Hispanic students completely ignores that it is Asian, not white, students who would bear the brunt of the proposed changes. At issue is the fact that these hyper-competitive high schools consider only a test score in deciding admissions

The commandant of the Marines has warned the Pentagon that deployments to the southwest border and funding transfers under the president’s emergency declaration, among other unexpected demands, have posed “unacceptable risk to Marine Corps combat readiness and solvency.” In two internal memos, Marine Corps Gen. Robert Neller said the “unplanned/unbudgeted” deployment along the border that President Trump ordered last fall, and shifts of other funds to support border security, had forced him to cancel or reduce planned military training in at least five countries, and delay urgent repairs at bases.(Snip) Neller, a four-star general, said because of the

A federal judge ruled that the Interior Department violated federal law by failing to take into account the climate impact of its oil and gas leasing in the West. The decision late Tuesday by U.S. District Judge Rudolph Contreras in the District of Columbia marks the first time the Trump administration has been held to account for the climate impact of its energy agenda, and it could have sweeping implications for the president’s plan to boost fossil fuel production across the country. Contreras concluded that Interior’s Bureau of Land Management “did not sufficiently consider climate change” when making decisions to auction

The apparent scoop du jour is that ex-VP Joe Biden is set to announce his bid with his running mate already picked out: former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams. Suggestions for his VP thus far have been a who’s-who of the current field of competition for the nomination, including Harris and O’Rourke. Abrams possibly becoming The Chosen One is somewhat surprising, because her star has only so recently begun its ascendency — but not too surprising, because of her fierce intellect, warm demeanor and popularity. Stacey Abrams exudes good sense and kindness, delivered with impeccable poise: that’s the impression most

Defeated Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams said Tuesday she spent the 10 days between Election Day and her non-concession speech "plotting," telling an audience "revenge can be very cathartic." Abrams has claimed for months that Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R.) used voter suppression methods as secretary of state to win, and she essentially deemed his victory illegitimate. She refused to concede on election night in hopes of forcing a runoff, and despite eventually losing by more than 50,000 votes, Abrams said the election was an "erosion of our democracy."
