Oprah’s ‘Truth’ and Its Potentially
Deadly Consequences

Paywall News, by Julie Gunlock

Original Article

Posted By:Hazymac, 1/12/2018 9:43:31 AM

Former daytime television superstar and rumored Democratic presidential candidate Oprah Winfrey won the Cecil B. DeMille Award at Sunday night’s Golden Globes. In the “complicated times” we live in, she said during her acceptance speech, “speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have.” While such bromides may play well with an audience of entertainers, Ms. Winfrey’s applause lines should be a warning to those who take her political ambitions seriously. She built her media empire by crafting pleasing narratives. She isn’t interested in boring things like data and facts. She has difficulty acknowledging that some things are true

Comments:
This column is on this morning´s editorial page in the Tampa Bay Times (although I cannot find the paper´s link). Paywall appears to be affiliated with the WSJ, but there is no paywall in front of Ms. Gunlock´s very sensible column. Hence, I have posted it.

I have no idea what #1 is referring to.

FTA: Ms. Winfrey has a penchant for promoting the myth that vaccines are dangerous. While she claims publicly to be pro-vaccine, she has allowed antivaccine megastars a platform to share “their truths.” Yet those “truths” aren’t true at all. They are a collection of unsubstantiated and conspiratorial charges linking vaccines to autism—never mind the mountain of evidence to the contrary.

Jennie McCarthy and Jim Carrey made nuisances of themselves blaming vaccines for autism, and now America has seen an alarming uptick in diseases once though to have been eradicated like red measles. Oprah has been central to this movement against vaccinations, and people have died because they didn´t get immunized.

Ohprah is a fabulist. Milo has a wonderful takedown of her -- as her programs are modeled on the Mass and become religious services for the secular.

However, this article goes off the rails regarding child vaccination. Anyone who questions child vaccination protocols, including DJT, and importantly, how they are administered, is demonized.

There ARE valid concerns that too many vaccines are given at once in one big push and much too early. But there is little scientific testing to back that or compare approaches. Science is all about questioning and testing, not just one person getting on TV.

Simply repeating that the CDC protocols are the only way for children to be vaccinated is kneejerk and not ´advanced´. Vaccines are better than they used to be but here is where personalized medicine, genomics, and machine learning should be of great value.

Vaccines can also be flawed--take this year´s flu vaccine, which basically doesn´t work. And adults react to all sorts of adult vaccines, like flu, pneumonia, tetanus and the like. Even HHS cautions about adult administration on vaccines on vaccines.gov. Being temporarily sick, on medical treatment for chronic conditions, or having a compromised immune system are major contraindicators.

..“speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have.”

Notice the "your truth", so typical of liberal-think. There´s "your truth" and "my truth" and aren´t we so special for that worldview?

Whatever happened to "the truth"?

Truth is not what you, me or they think. Truth is truth, period. There is only one truth just as a lie is a lie; white or not.

Black Coffee: The Starbucks
Story Is Trash
PJ Media, by Andrew Klavan    Original Article
Posted By: Hazymac- 4/21/2018 9:52:37     Post Reply
This is a country of 325-million people. If two guys getting tossed out of a coffee shop is news, then things in Donald Trump´s America must be going pretty damned well. But if the story were only meaningless trash, it would just be typical of American journalism. But it´s pernicious trash meant to advance a false left-wing narrative, which is — oh yeah! — typical of American journalism. In fact, this particular story is a textbook example of why our journalism needs reform. American journalism is a largely Democrat affair. About 7% of journalists identify as Republicans. About 28% identify as Democrats.

President Trump vs. the

President Trump´s decision to postpone new economic sanctions against Russia on Monday brought some clarity to the foreign policy fight in Washington. The issue isn´t whether UN Ambassador Nikki Haley gets confused, as she waspishly denied, but the fact that the president is fighting the swamp single-handed. Here´s the Financial Times´ snarky Edward Luce in a blast email this morning: "The explanation is simple. Everyone in the Trump administration is really hawkish on Russia. Except the president. On most days the train simply keeps running without him. People such as Haley talk to Jim Mattis, the defence secretary, John Bolton, the

The Democratic National Committee has just filed a civil lawsuit seeking millions of dollars in damages against the Russian government, WikiLeaks, the Trump campaign, and a supporting cast of thousands arguing that the parties conspired to influence the 2016 presidential campaign. The lawsuit is filed in federal court in the Southern District of New York (Manhattan). The DNC alleges a multitude of claims including conspiracy and violations of everything from conspiracy to violations of copyright law and the Trade Secrets Act. “One of the most notable things about the complaint,” says CBS News is the sheer number of defendants — the

Is Wind Energy a Good Idea?

You can produce electricity with a wind turbine, but is it good policy to do so? The reality is that wind energy exists solely because of government subsidies. (Don’t take my word for it, just ask Warren Buffett: “We get a tax credit if we build a lot of wind farms. That’s the only reason to build them. They don’t make sense without the tax credit.”) Given that wind energy is intermittent–nationally, wind turbines produce electricity around 40% of the time, generally at off-peak hours–and electricity cannot be stored at an industrial scale, wind energy accomplishes little, other than driving

Suspect in Gilchrist deputies’

The man identified as the suspect who fatally shot two Gilchrist County deputies in a restaurant Thursday afternoon before taking his own life has ties to the Tampa Bay area. Deputies say John Hubert Highnote, 59, of Bell — who was found dead outside the Ace China restaurant in downtown Trenton — lived in portions of the Tampa Bay area more than 30 years ago. Sheriff Bobby Schultz wouldn’t say how Highnote died, adding that state law enforcement officials were investigating. There’s no apparent motive for the shooting, and no other information about Highnote was immediately available. Schultz identified the deputies as Sgt.

The NHL got it right. Nikita Kucherov, the Lightning´s top scorer and best player so far in these playoffs, will play Saturday´s Game 5 against New Jersey. He´s not going to be suspended for his vicious hit on a Devils player in Tampa Bay´s Game 4 victory on Wednesday. That´s good news for the Lightning. And the absolute right call by the NHL. Was it a hard hit? Yes it was. Was it a violent hit? No doubt about it. Was it dirty? No way. Most of all, was it worth a suspension from a playoff game? Not in a

The Rays and Miami Marlins "are at a moment of reckoning" after histories of low attendance and an offseason in which they sold off many of their top players and were singled out by the MLB Players Association for failing to spend revenue-sharing money, according to a story published Thursday by the Wall Street Journal. Now, some are calling into question the experiment 25 years ago to bring Major League Baseball to Florida, which has hosted spring training for decades and has a wellspring of local talent as well as a large population of Latin Americans.

The Tampa Bay Times, one of the largest US newspapers by circulation, plans to lay off around 50 people starting Thursday in a direct response to a new tariff imposed by President Donald Trump´s administration. The Tampa Bay Times confirmed the layoffs to the Tampa Bay Business Journal. In March, Paul Tash, the Times´ chairman and CEO, wrote in the paper that new tariffs on imported newsprint would increase the company´s costs by roughly $3 million a year. "These tariffs will also hurt our employees, because payroll is the only expense that is bigger than newsprint," Tash warned. "To help offset the extra

It’s really not that complicated. But President Trump’s Syria strikes have reopened the debate over what defines his foreign policy. Is he an interventionist or an isolationist? Foreign policy experts claim that he’s making it up as he goes along. But they’re not paying attention. President Trump’s foreign policy has two consistent elements. From threatening Kim Jong-Un on Twitter to moving the embassy to Jerusalem to bombing Syria, he applies pressure and then he disengages. Here’s how that works. First, Trump pressures the most intransigent and hostile side in the conflict. Second, he divests the United States from the conflict leaving the relevant parties to

Wounded tigers

Robert Kagan told a Washington Post reporter that the liberal world order was in trouble "because the jungle is starting to grow back". He described, with a sense of poignant loss, the magnificent edifice that the Deplorables had by inattention let the seeds of nationalism overgrow. But perhaps it not the noise of the jungle that is responsible for the present cacophony. At least some of the frenzy rocking the West stems from the efforts of an ideology trying to hold on to its old dominance. Wounded tigers can be dangerous.

From Hillary Clinton’s point of view, of course: "Tarra Snyder, a student at Rosemount High School in Minnesota, who saw a copy of the book sent to her school, told Fox News she was “appalled” after seeing how “blatantly biased” the newest edition of “By the People: A History of the United States” was toward Trump and his voters.

David Rose’s 1958 instrumental ‘The Stripper’ is the theme song for our times. Get ready for it to reverberate over and over again in your aching head between now and November. But there’s no escaping that this is one theme song owned by the progressive left. While dozens of Republicans send word that they won’t be seeking re-election, porn star Stormy Daniels is holding public attention by doing the Blue Wave Strip Tease. The instrumental and porn star make for a perfect combo for Dems in Exile out to flip the House and Senate in November Midterms. While Stormy bumps and grinds, professional

The Democratic National Committee filed a multimillion-dollar lawsuit Friday against the Russian government, the Trump campaign and the WikiLeaks organization alleging a far-reaching conspiracy to disrupt the 2016 campaign and tilt the election to Donald Trump. The complaint, filed in federal district court in Manhattan, alleges that top Trump campaign officials conspired with the Russian government and its military spy agency to hurt Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and help Trump by hacking the computer networks of the Democratic Party and disseminating stolen material found there. “During the 2016 presidential campaign, Russia launched an all-out assault on our democracy, and it found

Attorney General Jeff Sessions recently told the White House he might have to leave his job if President Trump fired his deputy, Rod J. Rosenstein, who oversees the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, according to people familiar with the exchange. Sessions made his position known in a phone call to White House counsel Donald McGahn last weekend, as Trump’s fury at Rosenstein peaked after the deputy attorney general approved the FBI’s raid April 9 on the president’s personal attorney Michael Cohen. Sessions’s message to the White House, which has not previously been reported, underscores the political firestorm

“If the Trumps were Democrats,” conservative actor James Woods tweeted earlier this month, “Melania would be on every cover of every chic women’s magazine in the world every month.” Woods may be exaggerating a little bit — only Oprah can put herself on the cover of a magazine every month, and it’s her own magazine — but he does make an interesting point. First Lady Melania Trump has not graced the cover of a single magazine in the United States since her husband took office over a year ago. Michelle Obama, on the other hand, was featured on at least thirty

“No one in modern politics, male or female, has had to withstand more indignities, setbacks and cynicism. She developed protective armor that made the real Hillary Clinton an enigma.

The past 12 hours brought two very big revelations involving former FBI director James B. Comey, President Trump and the Russia investigation, and they must be looked at side by side to fully grasp their collective importance. Comey’s memos of his conversations with Trump have leaked in full. This came after Republicans threatened to subpoena them from Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein, leading him to release them to Congress. Comey confirmed to Rachel Maddow that before getting fired, he ordered an internal investigation into whether Trump surrogate Rudy Giuliani had been privately tipped off by people in the FBI two weeks

First-term Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) is emerging as a Democratic presidential contender in 2020. However, according to Politico, her own voters in California do not really know much about her. In an article titled “Kamala Harris’ rapid rise confounds California,” Politico’s David Siders writes: Kamala Harris has been called “the female Barack Obama.” She’s built a national following with her outspoken criticism of Donald Trump and prolific fundraising for fellow Democrats. But the California senator’s rapid rise — she’s just 15 months into her first term — has created an awkward issue: Even as progressives tout her as one of

New York set aside $10 million for the legal defense of immigrants targeted by Immigration and Customs Enforcement just days after ICE announced the arrest of hundreds of people in the state. The Liberty Defense Project will ensure legal rights are being represented, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said. It was launched last year, but it needs the additional funds in light of what state officials described as “overly aggressive tactics” from ICE. “ICE’s hyper-aggressive raids on hardworking New Yorkers are immoral and un-New York, and we stand more determined than ever to support the rights of all immigrants in the Empire State
