Heavy teen marijuana use may cut life short by 60

As tobacco went, so should marijuana!! “Heavy marijuana use in the late teen years puts men at a higher risk for death by age 60, a new long-term study suggests.Swedish researchers analyzed the records of more than 45,000 men beginning in 1969 and 1970. The scientists from the Karolinska Institute reported that 4,000 died during the 42-year follow-up period, and men who’d used marijuana heavily at ages 18 and 19 were 40% more likely to die by age 60 compared to guys who hadn’t used the drug… “Cannabis users have poorer health in general. You’d expect there to be increased mortality risk,” Krakower told CBS News. He pointed to another long-term study linking early heavy marijuana use with lung cancer, and a second study that associates the drug with increased heart problems.”

Florida Delegation to Tackle Heroin Crisis

Closing our borders to the Mexican drug cartels would be a start!!”The two chairs of the FL congressional delegation– Rep. Buchanan and Rep.Hastings–announced Tues they will hold a meeting later this week on the heroin crisis plaguing the Sunshine State… Noting there were more heroin related deaths in Manatee Co, than any other county in FL, Buchanan insisted FL was facing a crisis.Earlier this week, the FL Med Examiners Commission released a report showing an increase in heroin-related deaths… On average, more than 120 Americans die each day due to heroin. Sensenbrenner will showcase his “Comp Addiction Recovery Act” which “offers a critical first step toward ending heroin and opioid addiction.” The bill sets up “community-based anti-drug coalitions, a national education campaign, alternative incarceration programs and outpatient treatment centers.”

You Need To Know About Tom Perez: Likely Hillary VP Opposes First Amendment

Perez as VP would be a disaster!!”If Clinton became unable to serve prior to election, the Democrats would promote her VP nominee to the presidential slot… one of her most likely running mates is Tom Perez, the secretary of Labor…Americans who value freedom should find the prospects of a Clinton and a Perez presidency equally chilling. Clinton and Perez have a shared distaste for freedom of speech: Hillary’s unmistakable opposition has been abundantly documented, whereas Perez’s distaste for the 1st Amendment seems starker. In 2012, Perez — then the assistant AG for the Civil Rights Div, was asked by Rep. Franks-Will you tell us today that this administration’s DOJ will never entertain or advance a proposal that criminalizes speech against any religion?Perez could have simply answered yes.. Instead, Perez refused to answer the question directly.”

Math Scores Lower, Reading Scores Unchanged for Nation’s High School Seniors

Not good news!! “HS seniors nationwide have made little progress in math and reading, performing worse in math and about the same in reading on a national standardized test.According to the 2015 Nation’s Report Card, high school seniors scored 2 points lower in math than they did in 2013. Scores in reading remained unchanged in 2015 compared with 2013. Overall, scores were not significantly different in math and were 5 points lower in reading since the first comparable assessment year — 2005 for math and 1992 for reading.. The study had some jarring results in 2015: not even half of the students who took the test were prepared for college-level coursework — only 37% of 12th-graders are prepared for college-level work in each subject, a two point decline from the 2013 math scores and a one-point decline from reading scores.”

Meet sniper, CIA officer, Green Beret millionaire Todd Wilcox, a candidate for Florida’s open Senate seat

“As far as we know, only one candidate for FL’s open U.S. Senate seat is a trained sniper and Arabic-speaking former CIA officer.Only one has experience commanding an elite squad of counterterrorism hostage rescuers. Raising daughters as a single father. And making tens of millions as an entrepreneur…”When he spoke at the last Hillsborough Lincoln Day Dinner- when he was through, people were standing and cheering,.After Wilcox spoke Tues, the Hillsborough Republican Executive Committee held an unofficial straw poll. In Jolly’s backyard, 59 people voted for Wilcox, 14 for Lopez-Cantera, 5 for DeSantis and 0 for Jolly or Beruff. A week earlier, Wilcox and DeSantis spoke to Brevard Co Repubs, who held their own straw poll. Wilcox won 128 votes, Lopez-Cantera 36, DeSantis 35, Beruff three and Jolly two.”

A Congressman Wants to Build A Reservoir in the Florida Everglades. There’s Just One Problem…

Must Read! “Words that should trigger the red flag: “I’m from the government and I’m here to help.” In FL, it’s time to start warning because Rep. Clawson has arrived with a federal “solution” to FL water storage issues in regard to the restoration of the Everglades.Sadly, his proposal is one that will not solve anything. At the center of this issue is Lake Okeechobee, the 4th largest lake in the U.S… the proposal from Rep. Clawson, who campaigned on the value of limiting government, empowers the federal government to land grab and disregards important factors…it goes against logic. If the water in your bathtub were close to overflowing, logic would dictate to turn the water off to avoid a spillover. Would it not follow similar rationale to capture and store water before it gets to the lake, in effect stopping the overflow?”

EXCLUSIVE: Kerry, Heinz Family Have Millions Invested In Offshore Tax Havens

Must Read! No surprise here? Will the IRS investigate? “Kerry and his wife Teresa Heinz have invested millions of U.S. dollars through family trusts in at least 11 offshore tax havens, according to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group.The revelation comes on the heels of the release of the Panama Papers documenting how some of the world’s richest and most powerful people have used offshore bank accounts to conceal their wealth and avoid taxes.Since the release of the papers, no American politician has been identified as using the secretive offshore accounts.But a Daily Caller News Foundation investigation has confirmed that the former Democratic senator and his billionaire wife, using an elaborate set of Heinz family trusts, have invested “more than $1 million” each into 11 separate offshore accounts — mainly hedge funds in the Cayman Islands.”

The Criminal Constituency

Amen!! “McAuliffe was a Clinton henchman before he was gov. He would be a Clinton henchman afterward,which means that he must be one during his governorship, to which end he has ordered without legal authority the automatic re-enfranchisement of felons stripped of their voting rights. VA is a swing state, Clinton needs it, and Gov McAuliffe is determined to deliver it to her.. McAuliffe is here following the example of Obama, who has attempted to use particularistic powers entrusted him in a categorical rather than discrete fashion, thereby transforming exercises in exec privilege into policy changes that would normally require changes in the law. In the case of our ever-more-imperial president, the issue was illegal immigration: Obama’s general application of that discrete power amounted to a usurpation of legislative authority.”

De Blasio’s administration might be the dumbest in modern times

Another Crook! “The sad fact is this may be the dumbest admin in modern times. L’affaire Findlayter was still simmering when de Blasio made the fundamental errors that brought him to his present agony.He disremembered that warning about tugging on Superman’s cape, picking a pair of very public fights with Gov. Cuomo — one over education policy, the other over taxes. Big mistake; the governor has been torturing him ever since.Then de Blasio installed a cash register in City Hall and — up front and out in the open — began peddling political and policy access to big-bucks insiders. Corrupt union bosses, consultants, real-estate developers and other favor-seekers lined right up — pouring in cash that was meant to finance, among other things, de Blasio’s rise to national prominence.”

CDC Official Warned Staff of Health, Safety Risks During Influx of Illegal Alien Minors: “Plan on Many of the Kids Having TB,” “Be Wary of Personal Safety.” – Judicial Watch

Better find out if these kids are being tested before placed into our public schools and exposing our children? “A government official warned employees deploying for the influx of illegal immigrant minors about health and safety risks because the new arrivals would have TB and some were young adults—not children—like the Obama administration proclaimed, according to records obtained by Judicial Watch. “We might as well plan on many of the kids having TB,” states a June 26, 2014 guidance e-mail from a CDC health scientist, Denton, as the agency prepared to handle the crisis. “Most of these kids are not immunized, so we need to make sure all our staff are immunized.” Denton predicts that the agency will be overwhelmed pretty quickly and that screening requirements will be hard to keep up with.”


Get politics out of climate debate: Opposing view

“On this Earth Day, there is a great deal of frenzy about how our Earth is going to become uninhabitable, as the activities of man allegedly trigger global warming and climate change.With the Obama admin set to commit the U.S. to the Paris climate agreement by signing our nation onto the doc Friday, it is obvious that science has taken a back seat at the UN.The environmentalists, bureaucrats and politicians who make up the U.N.’s climate panel recruit scientists to research the climate issue. And they place only those who will produce the desired results. Money, politics and ideology have replaced science…Another U.N. official has admitted that the U.N. seeks to “redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy.” The former head of the U.N. climate panel also recently declared that global warming “is my religion.”

Texas Gov.: SCOTUS Will Be ‘Completely Rewriting’ Constitution by Favoring Obama in Immigration Lawsuit

“Gov. Abbott said that the US Constitution will be “completely rewritten” if the Supreme Court sides with Obama in the lawsuit challenging his executive action on immigration.Abbott, formerly the state’s longest-serving attorney general, told reporters that the lawsuit brought against the president by TX and 25 other states is “framed under” the issue of immigration but in reality challenges Obama’s use of executive power to “unilaterally” rewrite laws.“The lawsuit is about the fact that Obama completely abandoned the Constitution to assume power he does not have and wrote law that he himself said he did not have the power to do,” Abbott said..“The lawsuit is about the fact that, if the president wins this lawsuit, the Constitution as we know it has been completely rewritten and Congress no longer has any authority.”

Obama’s Violating the Constitution by Not Submitting Climate Treaty to Senate

Lawless!!”Today at UN, Kerry and representatives of over 130 nations will sign the Framework Convention on Climate Change agreement that was negotiated in Paris last December. According to Obama, this “historic agreement” will “hold every country accountable” if they fail to meet its carbon emission targets.The White House has acknowledged that the agreement contains “legally binding” provisions designed to create a “long-term framework” that will force the US and signatory countries to reduce carbon emissions for decades to come.Despite these facts,Obama has already announced he will not submit the Paris Climate Agreement to the Senate for advice and consent. Instead, the White House claims the environmental achievement is just an “international agreement” not meriting Senate attention.If the stakes weren’t so high, this claim would be laughable on its face.”

Eurabia’s Multiculturalists Warn: Muslim Migrants Create ‘Nations Within Nations’

Wow! Wake up call! “The liberal former head of Britain’s top multiculturalism agency confesses he “got almost everything wrong” regarding Muslim assimilation and warns the West that Muslims create “nations within nations.” Oh now they tell us.Muslims have carved out no-go zones as they have in France. And now that those immigrants have established 85 Islamic courts dispensing shariah “justice” across the U.K., the former head of Britain’s Human Rights Commission says perhaps he and other multiculturalists erred in assuming they would blend into western society and adopt our values. Phillips says it may have been a mistake to loosen immigration restrictions and roll out the prayer mat for large numbers of Islamists. And he says that he was naive to think the real risk of the arrival of these foreign communities was discrimination against Muslims.”

New Documents Prove Planned Parenthood Illegally Profited From Selling Aborted Baby Parts

“New documents show the Planned Parenthood(PP) abortion business profited from the sales of aborted baby parts. The documents provide more evidence that a Ctr for Med Progress video already put forward that PP is violating federal law prohibiting the profiting from the sales of body parts from aborted children.The video at PP Gulf Coast’s Houston abortion clinic and documents from a TX Public Info Act request show how PP used accounting gimmicks to hide its illegal sale of body parts.. Now, a new white paper on the pricing of aborted baby parts from the House Select Panel on Infant Lives reveals PP appears to be breaking the law…The white paper and exhibits show that the middleman company StemExpress does all of the work to transfer the aborted baby parts – making it so PP is spared any significant expense, thus leaving it with pure profit from the sale of the parts.”
