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.

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

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014. The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

President Obama shared an elevator earlier this month with an armed security contractor who has three felony convictions relating to assault and battery, in the latest report of a serious violation of Secret Service security protocols. Multiple sources confirmed to Fox News the incident, which took place in an elevator during Obama´s Sept. 16 visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. The incident was first reported by The Washington Post and the Washington Examiner. The latest embarrassment for the Secret Service comes after agency Director Julia Pierson told lawmakers at a Tuesday hearing

President Barack Obama has taken a lot of flack since his Sunday night “60 Minutes” interview, in which he blamed the intelligence community for his failure to tackle the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. And that is right and proper. Because not only was his excuse of blaming us a lie, but when questioned on his lie, White House press secretary Josh Earnest doubled down with a whole new lie — both of which are easily, publicly proven false. On Sunday, Obama said the intelligence community had underestimated the rise of ISIS, saying in an interview

The L.A. Times is warning that the “worst is yet to come” if a grand jury fails to indict white officer Darren Wilson for shooting and killing black 18-year-old Michael Brown. If the grand jury fails to indict the officer who killed Michael Brown, almost everyone here thinks things will get worse. “They’re not going to be looting next time,” said Kevin Seltzer, 30, who lives at an apartment complex near where Brown, 18, was shot. “They’re going to burn the city down.” The article highlights recent indications that the city is “far from finding peace,” including continued clashes with officers, the shooting

Former President Jimmy Carter claimed Wednesday that he would have been re-elected and beaten Ronald Reagan in 1980 if had been more “manly” in his dealings with Iran. Interviewed by the show "CNBC Meets," Carter repeated his belief that the failed mission to free American hostages held in Tehran killed his chances, but then added that had he gone to war, America would have rewarded him with a second term in 1980.

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

State Dept. On Obama Intel Briefings:

The Obama administration found itself scrambling on Tuesday to defend President Barack Obama for his lackluster 42% attendance record on daily intelligence briefings, a finding from a new report issued by the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI). When asked about the GAI revelation on Fox News, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki appeared flustered and unprepared. "Well, I have no validation of those statistics," said Psaki. "There are a range of ways that you can get your intelligence briefings on the road, in the White House, and I know that he receives those whenever he can."

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention notified the media at 3:32 p.m. Tuesday that Dallas has the first diagnosed Ebola case in the nation. The federal agency scheduled a media briefing at 5:30 p.m. from its headquarters in Atlanta. Dallas County officials are expected to participate. Dallas County went through a day-long anxiety attack Tuesday, waiting to hear if the first Ebola diagnosis in the nation would happen here. An unnamed patient at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas was placed in isolation while awaiting test results for the dreaded virus. Apparently, the patient had traveled recently to a

The sympathetic news media is avoiding mentioning his name, instead they are blaming the lack of a football intro for the massive collapse in ratings Sunday night for President Barack Obama’s appearance on CBS’ 60 Minutes. Americans turned away from watching Obama even though he was being interviewed about the nation’s new war on ISIS. For example, Deadline Hollywood didn’t even mention Obama’s 60 Minutes interview when reporting on the drop in viewers. “With no football lead-in, CBS’ Sunday lineup fell from last week. As expected, the drop was steepest at 7 PM, with 60 Minutes (1.1) off by 69%

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.

Kansas Tea Party supporters are threatening to sit out the state’s pivotal Senate election, potentially dealing another blow to the reelection hopes of Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.). Though schisms within the GOP base rarely have such an outsized impact on a general election contest, the lack of support from the conservative base could be devastating to the vulnerable Roberts’s chances against surging independent Greg Orman. Multiple sources tell The Hill that a group of Tea Party leaders in the state are meeting Wednesday to try to decide whether they should go to bat for the incumbent this fall or sit out of
