Stores may have received tainted beef

Check your ground beef before you grill out this Memorial Day weekend. The USDA´s Food Safety and Inspection Service says stores in nine states may have received beef contaminated with E. coli O157:H7. The FSIS announced earlier this week that 1.8 million pounds of ground beef products were being recalled because they could be contaminated. The federal agency has since named five retailers that may have received the tainted products. 1.8M pounds of ground beef recalled Affair at meat plant under investigation Rancher: No way our beef was tainted They are as follows: -- Gordon Food Service Marketplace stores in Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky,

Comments:
Check your ground beef. None of you want to be sick for the holiday weekend.

A persons chances of getting sick from meat is so slim as to be like winning the lottery in reverse. In case people have forgotten how to cook, if you cook your food properly you have no problems. If you grill your meat a bit pink in the middle you have a higher chance of problems. Mix your ground beef with spices and onions and eat it simply marinated like that, you have an even higher chance of problems.

I like to purchase prepared mixed salad which is always consumed raw and have never had a problem eating it like that. This prepared produce is prepared in a similar manner by machines and people- like the meat you have been purchasing all your life. If you have a history of stomach problems and the like, I would be wary of any news like this. If not, eat your normal food prepared in the normal way.

Since you asked, I am a skeptic but there are sensitive people out there with diminished biological resistance to these pathogens who will be the ones going to the hospital. If you are one of those, be aware of the possibility of problems. Also I would caution a person to be aware that the government is not your friend. There are many many cases of vendettas against particular food processors and this may be a prime example. The USDA inspection teams have a vested interest in finding food problems, sometimes manufactured problems.

President Barack Obama is expected to deny federal contracts to companies and non-profits — including religious employers — that treat homosexuality differently from heterosexuality, according to White House officials. That’s a huge step, because federal contractors employ roughly 20 percent of the nation’s workforce. Progressives applauded the announcement — which comes one day before a major fundraiser with gay donors — and demanded that Obama leave no exceptions, even for religious non-profits that use federal dollars to aid the poor and disadvantaged. “It is now vitally important for all of us to insist that this executive order, when eventually signed by the president,

Immigration reform moves to states;
New York eyes citizenship after 3

The frustration with Washington´s inaction on any type of immigration reform has forced proponents to shift their attention to states such as New York where a new plan was offered Monday to grant citizenship and voting rights after an illegal immigrant pays three years of taxes. The Washington-based Center for Popular Democracy said the New York legislative effort to provide citizenship benefits to three million immigrants is the result of the fallout of congressional gridlock and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor´s defeat last week, which pundits blamed on his support for reform. But that doesn’t mean immigration reform supporters have given

Poll: Bill Clinton Most Admired

Bill Clinton is by far the most admired president of the past quarter century, a new poll shows, underscoring how much he has done to burnish his profile since leaving the White House in 2000. Asked which president of the past 25 years they admired most, some 42% of respondents named Mr. Clinton in the new Wall Street Journal/NBC News/Annenberg Survey. That was more than twice the share that named any other president. The other three presidents of the quarter century all polled about the same: 18% said they most admired President Barack Obama; 17% named George W. Bush; and 16%

WASHINGTON — Facing a furor from angry Republican lawmakers, the White House said Monday that the Internal Revenue Service engaged in a good faith effort to find lost emails from an IRS official whose division processed applications for tax-exempt status by politically oriented groups. White House spokesman Josh Earnest called criticism from Republican lawmakers about the missing emails, quote, "far-fetched" and "not particularly believable." The IRS says the emails to and from the official, Lois Lerner, disappeared when her computer crashed in 2011. The IRS acknowledged last year that agents improperly scrutinized applications by some conservative groups. Documents have shown some liberal

The US and Iran could team up to legitimize an Iranian military presence in Iraq, Secretary of State John Kerry told Katie Couric earlier today. That’s a far cry from American policy over the past four decades, and a blow to US allies in the region, who have to be wondering just what Washington is thinking. Oliver Knox reports from the Couric interview, in which Kerry said the Obama administration would not rule anything out to prevent Iraq from being ripped apart: “This is a challenge to the stability of the region. It is obviously an existential challenge to Iraq itself.

A controversial senior adviser to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is receiving criticism for tweeting that the recent takeover of Iraqi cities by a violent terror group is proof that a Muslim “caliphate” is making an “inevitable” return. Mohamed Elibiary, a controversial figure and member of DHS’s Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC), discussed what he described as the “inevitable” return of a Muslim caliphate Friday on Twitter. “As I’ve said b4 inevitable that ‘Caliphate’ returns,” Elibiary tweeted in response to a question about the terror group Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), which is currently seeking to overthrow the Iraqi

Vice President Joe Biden will meet with senior representatives of Latin American countries this week to ´emphasize that illegal immigration is not safe´ and clear up ´misconceptions´ about the U.S.´s policy on child immigration, a senior White House official said Sunday. The senior official told reporters on a conference call that a visit to Guatemala had been added to Biden´s schedule at the last minute so he could meet with representatives of the governments of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador to discuss the ´root causes´ behind the apparent flood of unaccompanied minors leaving their countries to illegally immigrate to the

President Barack Obama spent last weekend on the golf course and on vacation in Palm Springs, California while his National Security team took charge of monitoring the increasing unrest in Iraq, it was revealed on Monday. According to reports filed by journalists on the trip of the president´s comings and goings, President Barack Obama spent Saturday afternoon and most of Sunday at exclusive resorts playing golf with White House aides. Meanwhile, National Security Adviser Susan Rice and her team were tasked with coming up with a plan to stop al Qaeda linked terrorist group Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL)

´Wave of humanity´: Border Patrol
overwhelmed by flow of illegal immigrants

MISSION, Texas – At daybreak in this border town, two women from Guatemala – one with a small child strapped to her back – wait patiently on the levee overlooking the Rio Grande. They have been instructed by the "coyote" who ferried them across the river for an exorbitant fee – as much as $1,000 – to simply wait for the Border Patrol to pick them up. After processing, they will likely be given a notice to appear before an immigration judge and a bus ticket to wherever in America they may have friends or relatives. That’s the way it

Pro-Life Group Wins in Supreme
Court Free Speech Case

A prominent pro-life group won a decisive victory against an Ohio state law that blocked a series of campaign ads during the 2010 election. The Supreme Court unanimously ruled that Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List), a non-profit organization that supports pro-life candidates, had every right to establish billboards stating that a vote for Obamacare meant a vote for taxpayer funded abortion during the 2010 midterm elections. The target of those billboards, Democratic Rep. Steve Driehaus, sued the group using an Ohio law that prohibits “false statements” in political campaigns. Driehaus lost the election by 7 points. The court’s 9-0 verdict concluded that

State Department counterterrorism officials warned in late April that Iran had “trained, funded, and provided guidance” to ethnic Iraqi terror groups bent on destabilizing the country. The April warning appears to directly contradict and undermine comments last week by a State Department spokeswoman claiming that the United States and Iran have a “shared interest.” As Iraqi militants continue to wage attacks and seize territory, the State Department has signaled that it is willing to work with neighboring Iran to stabilize the country. They have even raised the idea of discussing Iraq on the sidelines of the ongoing nuclear discussions taking

At any other time, the growing crisis on the Mexican border, with tens of thousands of unaccompanied young people crossing illegally into the United States, might dominate the news. Yet the situation has received less attention than it might amid the furor over House Majority Leader Eric Cantor´s primary defeat, the collapse of Iraq, the continuing Bergdahl matter, and Hillary Clinton´s book tour. They´re all genuinely important news stories, and they´ve crowded out disaster at the border. But whether or not many people noticed, this was the week in which the Obama administration´s attempts to deflect blame for the border

I know, I know, the recent ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Levant) gains have everyone scared. No doubt, the Islamophilic administration will want to step in, and save Islam from itself once again. Let me advocate a course of action that will make sense (snip) Let the Muslims kill each other. After the administration blundered on Benghazi, on the Arab Spring, and Syria, Heaven itself has afforded it one last chance to set itself right. It is almost impossible for the administration to screw it up. All it has to do is nothing. Yes, Nothing!

In an astonishing challenge to traditional Catholic doctrine, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, nominally Catholic, has taken to telling San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone that he should not attend the National Organization for Marriage’s June 19 march on the Supreme Court in Washington D.C. Cordileone is scheduled to be a featured speaker at the event, according to the San Francisco Chronicle, which is consistent with his championing of Proposition 8 in 2008. Cordileone helped raise $1.5 million for the initiative, which intended to ban same-sex marriage in the state. He once said, "The ultimate attack of the evil one is

Top Jeb Bush adviser Mike Murphy, who did not even pay attention to Dave Brat´s campaign like Breitbart News did, has falsely been claiming that Cantor´s embrace of amnesty for illegal immigrants was not the reason he lost last Tuesday. Liberal writer Mickey Kaus had enough of Murphy´s nonsense and slammed him on Twitter on Friday evening. Kaus became Brat´s de facto press secretary and top advocate on Twitter in the last months of the campaign because Kaus, like Brat, opposes amnesty for illegal immigrants because it would hurt American workers. He mentioned to Murphy that talk radio host Laura Ingraham

RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. – It´s perhaps appropriate that President Barack Obama is vacationing this weekend in California, where the state flag features a roaming grizzly. The restless president, who has compared himself to a caged animal on recent wanderings by declaring the "bear is loose," took a long Father´s Day weekend away with his wife and older daughter. The visit to the desert resort area of Palm Springs is one of the ways Obama has been trying to escape during his sixth year cloistered in the White House.

Anaheim, CA - President Obama, appearing emboldened after his recent move to cut carbon emissions from coal-fired power plants, on Saturday ridiculed members of Congress who deny climate change or plead scientific ignorance as an alibi for avoiding an uncomfortable truth. Speaking in gleefully sarcastic terms to a commencement ceremony at the University of California, Irvine, Mr. Obama likened those who deny climate change to people who would have told John F. Kennedy, at the dawn of the space program, that the moon “was made of cheese.” He saved his most scathing words for lawmakers who say they are not qualified to

President Barack Obama said denying climate change is like arguing the moon is made of cheese, as he issued a call to action on global warming to Saturday´s graduates of the University of California, Irvine. Obama issued the call to the tens of thousands gathered at Angel Stadium even though he said Congress ´is full of folks who stubbornly and automatically reject the scientific evidence´ and say climate change is a hoax or fad. Obama said others duck the question. ´They say, "Hey, look, I´m not a scientist." And I´ll translate that for you: what that really means is, "I know that

Members of Congress called on President Obama Sunday to link up with Arab allies and quell a quick-moving crisis in Iraq, where Islamic militants swept toward Baghdad and left a bloody trail in their wake. Republican lawmakers said the administration has sat on the sidelines for too long as sectarian violence threatens to undo what U.S. troops accomplished during the war in Iraq. The bloodshed spurred by militants from an al Qaeda splinter group could topple the country’s fragile government while civil war rages in neighboring Syria, they said, offering a magnet for extremists from Iran and even western nations.

Joe Scarborough, the MSNBC host who has transformed into one of his generation´s most preeminent Rockefeller Republicans, believes Mitt Romney should run for president again in 2016. Speaking to about 300 guests at "a luxury resort in the Rocky Mountains" with other potential GOP presidential hopefuls like Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), Scarborough reportedly urged the establishment donors and insiders to being a “Draft Romney” movement. “This is the only person that can fill the stage,” Scarborough said at a summit hosted by Romney, according to a Washington Post report.
