And It Gets Worse

Real News Daily. M.D. Creekmore provides a quick summary of the days ten most fascinating news stories…

1. SENATE REPUBLICAN HEALTHCARE BILL GETS WORSE

Senate Republicans have finally revealed their plan to revamp the Affordable Care Act. Now, they’re just trying to pass it. There will be lots of twists and turns along the path to an expected vote next week — and it’s by no means assured the GOP will get there. Senators. Ted Cruz of Texas, Mike Lee of Utah, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and Rand Paul of Kentucky — said outright they’d cast their votes against the bill without further rollbacks to Obamacare. Paige Winfield Cunningham reports in the Washington Post: The Health 202: McConnell will be a legislative wizard if health care passes.

+ What To Expect in the Senate Health Care Bill.

+ Rand Paul told reporters that the bill “looks like we’re keeping Obamacare, not repealing it. Says; Insurance should be available for $1 a day.

+ What the health insurance industry wins and loses in the Senate health care bill.

+ It looks like women have been entirely left out of the new health care law – so much so that even the word “women” literally never appears in the US Senate’s 142-page health-care bill.

2. JOHNNY DEPP WANTS TO BE THE NEXT JOHN WILKES BOOTH

And another Hollywood moron speaks and threatens to kill an American President – this time it was Johnny Depp. Freedom of speech is great but publicly threatening to kill someone goes beyond free speech and threatening to kill the president of the united states is a class E felony and can carry up to a five-year prison sentence. Of course, Depp isn’t going to attempt to assassinate Donald or anyone else. He’s just another spoilt celebrity that’s starved for attention and stirring up controversy to get it, just like other before him. The danger is that other people who are dumb enough to look up to these idiot celebrities might try – think James Hodgkinson. What’s the solution? To make an example of one of these celebrities and the best way to do that is to prosecute and convict.

3. GOOGLE SAYS THEY WILL STOP READING YOUR GMAIL

Google will stop its long-standing practice of scanning the contents of individual Gmail users for advertising purposes, the company announced in a blog post today. The practice, something Google has done nearly since the launch of its email service, allows the company to digest the contents of email messages and use them to deliver targeted ads within Gmail itself. The Verge: Google will stop scanning your Gmail messages to sell targeted ads.

4. I’LL TRY TO REMEMBER THAT

Scientific evidence indicates that keeping your mind active through “cognitive training,” controlling your blood pressure and exercising more may pay dividends regarding brain health, researchers determined. CBS News Reports: Three lifestyle changes that may help guard against dementia. (Nothing breathtaking here, just stuff we should all be doing anyways for better overall health.)

+ What is cognitive reserve? How we can protect our brains from memory loss and dementia.

+ Study says; Extra-virgin olive oil preserves memory and protects the brain against Alzheimer’s.

5. GETTING AWAY WITH MURDER

A mistrial has been declared for the second time in the case of a white police officer who shot dead an unarmed black motorist in Ohio two years ago. Via The BBC News Service: Second US mistrial in Ohio police shooting of Samuel DuBose. (The guy was stupid for trying to drive away. However, it’s easy to see that he was no threat to the police officer or anyone else at that point when he was shot in the head by Officer Ray Tensing. The police should have to go by the same rules for using deadly force as the rest of us. I ask you what would happen to you if some guy stopped in the road as you were walking cursed you and then started to pull out and leave but you stop him from leaving by shooting him in the head. Yes, you would be serving a lengthy prison sentence. And the fact that the officer was white and the victim was black had nothing to do with it – no doubt the trigger happy officer would have just as quickly shot and killed a white man, but then most white men would have cooperated with the police and been on their way in a few minutes.)

But I need your help and feedback… Please let me know in the comments below this post what you like and don’t like about this site and what you would like to see to make it better and more useful to you. Thank you for your help… It’s greatly appreciated.

1. ROAD RAGE

Police say road rage led to the death of a 17-year-old girl who was walking to a Sterling mosque after a pre-dawn trip to McDonald’s with a group of other teens early Sunday morning. Reported by WTOP: Police: Road rage blamed for killing of Va. Muslim teen.

+ What most mainstream news outlets have failed to report (intentionally left out) is the alleged attacker one Darvin Martinez Torres is an illegal immigrant as reported by the Toronto Sun: Suspected illegal immigrant Darvin Martinez Torres accused of brutally beating Muslim girl in road rage incident.

2. OUT OF THIS WORLD

Nasa’s Kepler space telescope has discovered over 200 potential planets. Nasa scientists released a comprehensive catalogue, listing 219 new planet candidates, 10 of which are “near-Earth size and orbiting in their star’s habitable zone”, indicating that they could play host to alien life. Kepler’s latest discoveries bring up the total number of potential planets found by the space telescope to 4,034, of which 2,335 have been verified as exoplanets. Reported by International Business Time: Nasa discovers 10 Earth-like potential planets that could host alien life. (In my humble opinion they have already discovered life on other planets but have decided not to inform the general public of their findings.)

3. TO CLOSE FOR COMFORT

An armed Russian fighter jet buzzed a U.S. Air Force reconnaissance aircraft in the Baltic Sea on Monday, two U.S. officials told Fox News. The Russian Su-27 jet had air-to-air missiles under its wings and approached the U.S. Air Force RC-135 recon jet “rapidly,” coming within five feet of the American aircraft, the officials said. Fox News World: Armed Russian jet comes within 5 feet of US recon jet.

+ Russia is constantly improving its nuclear deterrence and is very close to deploying new technologically-advanced intercontinental ballistic missiles which can defeat any US missile defense systems. Reports RT NewsRussia’s new ICBMs can ‘rip apart’ US anti-missile systems.

+ Also, reported by RT News: Russia & China announce new ‘unspecified’ measures to US’ anti-missile system in S. Korea. And, China tests new missile near Korean peninsula. And, Iran has to get in a jab too – Iranian commander warns US of ‘irreversible consequences’ over ‘unprofessional’ moves in Gulf. (We are itching towards WW3 folks – and the U.S. military and the nation isn’t ready for an all-out world war three, which is very different than the “world policing” engagements that they’ve became used to.)

4. WHEN BLACK BEARS ATTACK

“It’s very unusual. “It’s sort of like someone being struck by lightning.” Fox News: Black bears kill 2 in Alaska.

5. THAT’S A HUGE PILE OF… POOP

When doctors in China removed 30 inches of a young man’s colon, they also removed nearly 29 lbs. (13 kilograms) of his feces. The 22-year-old’s belly had swelled past the size that would be seen in a pregnant woman, at full-term, according to a Chinese news agency that reported his case. He told doctors that he had been constipated since birth, and that laxatives provided only slight relief. Fox News Health: Man’s 29 lbs. of poop removed.

Is Russia Preparing to Attack The US

Real news daily. M.D. Creekmore provides a smart summary of the days ten most fascinating news stories…

1. RUSSIA THREATENS WAR WITH THE U.S. OVER SYRIA

Shortly after the US-led coalition shot down a Syrian Su-22 plane Sunday, Russia has issued a stern warning to the U.S. that “Any aircraft, including planes and drones belonging to the international coalition operating west of the Euphrates river, will be tracked by Russian anti-aircraft forces in the sky and on the ground and treated as targets,” the Russian defense ministry warned. BBC News Service: Syria conflict: Russia issues warning after US coalition downs jet. (Will Russia shoot down an U.S. military aircraft if it breaks the “rules”… probably. But the big question is what happens when they do? How will the U.S. respond and then how will Russia respond to the U.S. response? It’s a domino effect that could very well lead to World War Three… or is it just posturing by Russia attempting to look tough to the world?)

+ Russia to treat US jets in Syria as ‘targets’ after America guns down first Syrian warplane. (I don’t recall the Syrian government inviting the U.S. government or any so called “coalition” forces into their country or their asking for “help” from the U.S. government in the “fight against ISIS” so what are we doing there? And why are they shooting down Syrian military planes over Syrian airspace? To Put it into perspective… imagine if another country, say, China came on U.S. soil without being invited and started shooting down U.S. planes.  It’s not about “defeating ISIS” – see the link below.)

+ Why is USA interfering in Syria?  (And the Middle East in general?)

+ REPORT: Israel has reportedly been discreetly supporting Syrian rebel groups for years in order to protect its northern border from the war raging in Syria.

2. BLOOD ON THE STREETS

(London has had its share of Islamic terrorist attacks targeting non-Muslims in recent months – three attacks in three months to be exact – well it seems that the latest attack was carried out by a 48-year-old white man who had, apparently had enough and wanted to return the carnage so he ran a van through a crowd of Muslims heading home from a mosque where they were celebrating Ramadan. What was the trigger? Was it that he knew or was related to one or more of the victims of the previous attacks that’s taken place over the course of the past few months? We’ll probably never know that detail but I think it’s likely.) Read the article at The Daily Beast: One Dead, 8 Hospitalized as London Terror Attack Targets Muslims Leaving Prayers.

+ Police in the US Virginia have found the remains believed to be of a 17-year-old Muslim girl who was assaulted near a mosque before disappearing. via The BBC News: Virginia Muslim girl found dead near mosque.

+ Poll: Most Americans trust US government to protect them against terror attack.

3. STRICTEST GUN CONTROL LAWS IN THE COUNTRY

(After more than 4,000 shootings and 762 homicides in 2016 – a massive 59% increase on the previous year and more murders than New York and LA combined Chicago asks, “what’s wrong”. Well their answer is of course more gun control since that’s worked so well thus far. Seems to me that a better solution would be to go after the gangs and their leadership directly instead of worrying about enacting more gun control laws that have already proven not to work.) By Joel Gunter BBC News, Washington DC: Chicago goes high-tech in search of answers to gun crime surge.

+ Records 300th homicide this year over Father’s Day…

4. ABSOLUTE POWER CORRUPTS ABSOLUTELY

If power were a prescription drug, it would come with a long list of known side effects. It can intoxicate. It can corrupt. It can even make Henry Kissinger believe that he’s sexually magnetic. But can it cause brain damage? From the Atlantic: Power Causes Brain Damage. (If you need more proof of this effect just look towards Washington DC.)

5. TO LIVE AND DIE IN THE U.S.

Researchers have long argued that where we live can help predict how we die. Take a look at this map to see their predictions of when and how you will die based on where you live. Looks like the western U.S. is the best place to be for a long life – if you believe such predictions. Via FiveThirtyRight: 35 Years Of American Death.

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals Gives Americans the Finger

Real news daily. M.D. Creekmore provides a smart summary of the days ten most fascinating news stories…

1. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals Gives Americans the Finger

As you’ve probably heard the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has followed previous court rulings blocking President Trump’s “travel ban” from six of the top “Jihadist producing countries”. The Trump administration wants the ban in place because there isn’t any reliable way to vet people coming into the U.S. from any of these places so the best and most effective way to prevent potential terrorists from slipping into the U.S. would be a complete ban on travel from those six countries.

Sadly, while I support the ban I’m not sure how effective it would be at preventing terrorism because we have hundreds of thousands of potential terrorists already here in the U.S. from those same six countries that’s on President Trump’s travel ban list. And let’s not forget how easy it is to cross over into the U.S. via the U.S. and Mexico “border”. If ISIS or other terrorist group wants to come into the U.S. they can get into the country travel ban in place or not… but let’s not make it easy for them.

Now it comes to the final showdown via the supreme court – Reuters: Trump eyes Supreme Court after appeals court rejects travel ban.

2. Killing a President

The wacko far liberal left can’t help but play out their sick fantasies of assassinating President Donald J Trump. Failed “comedian Kathy Griffin is the first to come to mind with her “beheading of President Trump“, then the moronic “music video” of Cordozar Calvin Broadus, Jr. AKA “Snoop Dogg” shooting President Trump in the Head. And now we have New York theater executive Oskar Eustis producing a twisted theatrical version of Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar where a stand in for President Trump is stabbed to death. New York Times: How Outrage Built Over a Shakespearean Depiction of Trump.

+ THE REPUBLIC IS BEING PREPARED FOR TRUMP ASSASSINATION. Trump has made enemies with the globalists and now they want him dead!

5. Look for Food Prices to Increase

Like we needed more reasons to prep – The USDA just released new numbers for losses after the out of season blizzard and unseasonable cold-rolled across the main wheat-growing region of the USA., the numbers of now are at least 25% loss of the winter and red wheat crops.

Living In Small Places To The Extreme

Real news daily. M.D. Creekmore provides a smart summary of the days ten most fascinating news stories…

1. Living in Small Places to The Extreme

Living in small spaces via tiny homes and apartments is becoming more popular recently with TV shows,  how-to-do-it books and websites and many folks are pushing the limits of comfort to see just how small they can go. I’ve done it myself while living off the grid in a travel trailer for over two years – I even wrote a book about it titled Dirt-Cheap Survival Retreat: One Man’s Solution that was published by Paladin Press. It can be done but some folks in Hong Kong are taking it the extreme, however I don’t think most are doing it by choice. The Guardian: Boxed in: life inside the ‘coffin cubicles’ of Hong Kong – in pictures.

+ Off the Grid: Simple Solar Homesteading – This book is for anyone thinking about or already living off-grid. It includes detailed step-by-step plans for a solar cabin and over 30 other projects.

2.How Easily We Are Entertained

First we had the Cosby Show and now today we will be entertained by the Comey Show and I for one am looking forward to watching the season finale today starting at 10 a.m. will you be watching? The big question is does Comey have any proof to backup whatever he says? Comey like anyone else can say anything about anything but that doesn’t make it true. Does he have secret takes of his and president trumps conversations like has been suggested? And if Comey does in fact have tapes or other proof of what he and the mainstream media have been saying did president Trump actually break the law? CNN YouTube: Trump Cannot Be Guilty of Obstruction While Exercising His Constitutional Authority.

+ So far, Jim Comey is disappointing the witch-hunters.

3. Brutal Revenge

After the terrorist attacks in Tehran Wednesday that killed at least 12 people Iran vows revenge while blaming the Saudis for the attack. What will be Iran’s next move?

Iran’s Revolutionary Guards say Saudi Arabia supported ISIS in the deadly twin attacks in Tehran on Wednesday, an accusation likely to infuriate the Saudi kingdom amid high tensions in the region.

CNN: Iran’s Revolutionary Guards blame Saudis for Tehran attacks.

The Iranians aren’t alone in blaming the Saudis for terrorist attacks with one of the most note worthy accusations coming from U.S. president Donald Trump who has blamed the Saudis for 911 and there is proof to back those claims up.

+ BBC News: Tehran attackers ‘were IS recruits from Iran’.

+ Iran rejects Trump’s condolences after terror attack, calls statement ‘repugnant’. “The Iranian people reject U.S. claims of friendship.”

4. North Korea Blasts Off A Few Rounds

North Korea launches multiple missiles in what appeared to be barrage of land-to-ship missiles fired off North’s east coast. And U.S. president Donald Trump once again that military intervention was an option under consideration. Aljazeera: Defiant North Korea launches multiple missiles.

+ And not to be out done India launches ‘monster’ rocket.
