Doctor’s link to Justina Pelletier casts
doubts on her claim in shaken baby Case

Boston Herald, by Peter Gelzinis

Original Article

Posted By:John c, 8/8/2014 3:23:23 PM

Gerry Leone’s last act as Middlesex district attorney was to charge Aisling Brady McCarthy, better known as “The Irish Nanny,” with the murder of Rehma Sabir, the 1-year-old girl in her care. Leone’s high-profile finale was based entirely on the word of Dr. Alice Newton, who, back in January of 2013, ran Children’s Hospital Child Protection Program. Dr. Newton wasted no time in determining Rehma’s death was the result of shaken baby syndrome — which could only have been caused by her caregiver, McCarthy. In the last 20 months two things have happened: McCarthy has languished in jail.

Comments:
Doctor who nearly destroyed Justina and her family is involved in another questionable diagnoses of a case.

Note the parents had taken the child to Pakistan three weeks before when the cervical fracture occurred.
This Doctor should lose her license to practice.

Massachusetts still likes their witch hunts, it seems. Didn´t they imprison a mother/son owners of a day care, who were found guilty based on fantastical testimonies from the children. Testimonies which were definitely prompted by adults planting ideas and "memories" in the children´s minds.

Note that Dr. Alice Newton is no longer at Boston Children´s Hospital--the article says she is now at Mass. General.

THE HAGUE, Netherlands — A Dutch high school student was suspended after posting a video in which he said he belonged to ISIS and wanted to decapitate Jews. The De Spindel high school in Hengelo, a city in eastern Netherlands, suspended the 14-year-old in recent days, according to a report Saturday by the De Telegraaf daily. The student, who according to the newspaper is a Muslim boy of Balkan descent, was identified in the media only as Ilhan M.??“Hi, I am from ISIS and I would like to cut off the heads of Jews,” he is seen as saying, followed by

Boston Imam: We suffer ´double hurt´

Atrocities by ISIS terrorists and a report attempting to link an Oklahoma beheading at a food plant to the Islamic Institute of Boston had the founder of the Hub religious center telling the Herald yesterday it’s a “double hurt” for his faith. “Our situation is very bad,” said Imam Talal Eid. “Every time the word ISIS is mentioned, and it’s mentioned hundreds of times, Islam is being pushed into the middle of that. They are abusing Islam. They are not Islam.” (Snip) Eid said people should not judge Islam “based on the acts of people,” because those acts are not consistent with the religion.

Members of the Taliban torched an estimated 60 homes and beheaded 12 civilians — all of whom are believed to have been relatives of police — in an assault in the eastern portion of Afghanistan, in the Ghazni province. The deputy police chief for the province, Asadullah Ensafi, said Taliban forces have been staging assaults on various villages for weeks, The Associated Press reported. Late Thursday night, they took into custody 12 family members of local and national police officers, ultimately beheading them, and also burned down dozens of homes. As of Friday, the violence was still raging, he said,

The Bay State family of a former Navy SEAL killed in the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack is suing his life insurance company, saying the policy he was forced to take out is “essentially worthless” because none of his surviving relatives can collect the benefits. “It’s with a real heavy heart that we file this,” Kate Quigley of Marblehead, the sister of Glen Doherty, told Boston Herald Radio yesterday. “The long and short is that for two years we’ve been working with the agency because Glen had a life insurance policy, which is required, as anyone in his position would have.

WASHINGTON — A senior Justice Department lawyer who defended same-sex marriage, President Obama’s health care law and the government’s right to collect bulk phone records has been promoted to the department’s No. 3 position, officials said Friday. As acting associate attorney general, the lawyer, Stuart F. Delery, will oversee civil rights, antitrust and environmental cases, among other matters, the Justice Department said. (SNIP) If the Supreme Court takes up a case involving state bans on same-sex marriage, Mr. Delery would be expected to play a central role in developing the Justice Department’s strategy on the case.

The killing of U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Harold J. Greene in Afghanistan Monday hit home with terrible irony. It was just four years ago that the general was here with us, representing the Army he served, speaking at a podium in South Boston’s Medal of Honor Park, helping us rededicate our Vietnam memorial that honors our friends and neighbors who gave their lives for their nation in combat. Now, just four years later, he is among them. He came to honor South Boston’s 25 Vietnam war dead, and now we are compelled to honor him. Tom Lyons called me with the news of

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false. We discover that lapses in

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey.

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

ATLANTA — Texas, America’s second-most populous state behind California, saw 13 of its last abortion clinics turn away women on Friday, after a federal appeals court upheld a law that practically guarantees that only a handful of clinics will remain open in the state. The strictest-of-its-kind Texas law requires abortion providers to build hospital-grade facilities and obtain sometimes impossible-to-get hospital admitting privileges. After signed into law last year by Gov. Rick Perry (R), the law forced most of the 41 clinics operating to close. Thursday’s ruling wiped out a brief victory this summer for abortion rights proponents,

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It

The hawkish Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina says he is thinking about running for president in 2016. In an interview with Stephen Hayes of the Weekly Standard, the senator, running for re-election to the Senate this year, said: “If I get through my general election, if nobody steps up in the presidential mix, if nobody’s out there talking — me and McCain have been talking — I may just jump in to get to make these arguments,” Graham said. Graham, 59, also dismissed Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, 43, as a presidential candidate, saying he is too young. “He’s a good
