Zika and Its Path: What Our Public Health Authorities Are Hiding

If a vaccine - over 20 years in the making - had the potential to cause a deadly cross-enhancement of the Zika virus whenever the Culex species of mosquitoes transmitted it, would the WHO and CDC try to keep that a secret? What if billions of dollars were at stake? I am completely unnerved by the actions of the CDC, WHO, and Health Canada. And I can't help shake this feeling there is more we are not being told. I walk you through some hunches and provide you with proof that (I hope) will cause you to ask more questions of our public health authorities.

A Crime Against Humanity: How the CDC and WHO Are Promoting the Global Spread of Zika

After compiling months of research, I have grown completely disgusted with how our public health authorities (the WHO, CDC, and Health Canada) have been addressing the Zika crisis. They are employed by us, taxpayers, to protect all citizens (including pregnant women and their babies) from diseases. In the very least (without a cure or vaccine in sight) they should be mitigating the spread of disease. What that means is: travel restrictions, prophylactic spraying of aircraft and shipping containers, and screening large groups of people coming from Zika-endemic areas (such as prisoners from Puerto Rico). What's more, since the spring, crucial research has been completely ignored by public health authorities. I firmly believe that both Aedes aegypti and Culex mosquitoes (which are prevalent almost everywhere in the world) can transmit the Zika virus to humans.

What Do US Political Candidates Do With Unused Campaign Funds?

Once upon a time politicians were able to basically do whatever they wanted with unused campaign fund, even use it as a personal retirement fund. This is not the case anymore as the rules were changed in the 1970s to restrict what they could do with the cash. Where does it go?

The REAL Origin of The Religious Right

The religious right, a general term for the voting bloc which focuses on combining Christian values with conservative policies, is a mainstay in American politics. The movement is often defined by the fight over abortion, private schools, and resistance to civil rights for LBGTQ individuals. However, what lots of people have forgotten, is that this movement didn't spring out of the churches. It sprang out of the South's resistance to ending racial segregation.

The Problem With American Voters

America has entered a new age, where voting is more streamline and more accessible than ever. Unfortunately the voting population is lacking in both numbers and in diversity. Those who either do not vote at all, or vote without educating themselves are causing our democracy to loose credibility. It is time to take information out of the hands of media, money driven campaigns, and bias propaganda and create an empowered and educated voting population.

Military Members Scrubbing Your Social Media Accounts: A Commentary

Much a do about nothing; as Shakespeare would say. Military personnel, both current and veterans are being encouraged to scrub their social media accounts of references to their military service. This is not for some classified secrets or war plans; this is about a knee-jerk reaction because of threats made public by ISIS/ISIL (or whatever they want to call themselves) that they will come and get us in our homes." Unfortunately, there are quite a few conspiracy folks that believe this is really a U.S. government plot to control what people post on their personal web pages. So here's a commentary from one old veteran to those who maybe a bit confused. This is just history repeating itself.

Political Opinion: Boots on the Ground

The U.S. President and Congress want to stop ISIS/ISIL from spreading out and, more so, push them out of being a viable threat to the region, U.S. allies and friends. U.S. Politicians are afraid that by putting boots on the ground, it could hurt them in future elections; therefore, they have opted for the bombing option; and now, by deploying military members as trainers.
