Supreme Court Gives Trump a Big Win for the Remain in Mexico Policy

Last week, the Ninth Circuit continued its program of LawFare and obstruction directed against the Trump administration in general and the enforcement of immigration laws in particular.

A year ago, the Department of Homeland Security instituted it Migrant Protection Protocols, or MPP. The overall purpose was to disincentivize human trafficking in illegal immigrants along our southern border. Thanks to policies instituted during the last couple of years of the Obama administration and the actions of a handful of federal judges who seem hellbent on ensuring that our immigration laws are impossible to enforce, we have seen the character of illegal immigrants along the border change from predominantly single Mexican adults to family units that are mostly not from Mexico but use Mexico as their staging point for their attempt to cross the border. When they are apprehended, because of court decisions, the family unit is released on parole within the United States and are on the honor system to show back up for their immigration hearing.

A Forgotten Spiritual Hero

Seven Haskell brothers would go on to serve in the Confederate Army, and while leading his battalion of sharpshooters at Gettysburg, William was killed in action. In a postwar memoir, his brother John C. Haskell described  William as “deeply and simply religious as any man ever was, never obtruding it on anyone out of place, but never failing to assert it in the right place. More than one clergyman has told me how William’s life in the army had converted him and made him devote his whole life to the church.” Also: "Seven Blackbirds"

Daniel Baker (1791-1857) is all but forgotten today, but in the first half of the nineteenth century this Presbyterian minister was a well-known and profoundly influential evangelist in America.  Born in Midway, Georgia, he was educated at Hampden Sydney College in Virginia and at Princeton.  He held several pastorates, including one in Savannah, Georgia, but spent most of his life in the ministry as an itinerant evangelist, traveling to many parts of the country including Ohio, Alabama, and the Carolinas.  In 1849, he founded Austin College in Texas.

Dr. Baker’s preaching sparked major religious awakenings in South Carolina, most significantly in the 1830s in Beaufort District, where he was responsible for the conversion of a number of young men who would go on to become influential ministers and hold high office in their respective denominations.  William J. Grayson, editor of the Beaufort Gazette, wrote of Dr. Baker’s services at Episcopal and Baptist churches in Gillisonville, Grahamville, and Beaufort, proclaiming that “never, surely, since the days of the Apostles has more fervid zeal, or ardent piety, or untiring labour been devoted by a Christian minister to his cause.”

Strep is routinely sensitive to ampicillin and amoxicillin, second best is erythromycin (azithrro). Pneumonia is decently covered with azithromycin. Cipro is only good for gastrointestinal issues (and UTIs which are GI bugs). Sinus infections tend to be covered by trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole, although penicillins and cephalexin can work in some cases. Clindamycin is a next best, but has a higher rate of complications. 

Cephalexin is decent for some UTIs. 

Doxycycline is mostly for urethritis (think STD) or as anti inflammatory for acne/leprosy, etc.
Minocycline is mostly for acne or rosacea.

I'm not sure what the "correct" answer would be for this chart, and I'm quite certain that the answer has changed since that chart was printed (I know it has changed since I went to med school).


Please help me complete this matrix.  Please correlate the following antibiotics in the left column with the "common" conditions across the row on the top.  Please correlate with a "1" being the best option, "2" being the second, and "3" being the one to try when the others don't work.
Any common infections I'm missing that should be included?
I will compile and publish in a week or so.

Experts: China Carving Lungs Out of Political Prisoners to Treat Coronavirus

 Practitioners of Falun Dafa, also called Falun Gong, meditate and exercise outside of the Chinese consulate, Thursday, April 25, 2019, in New York. Banned from China as a cult, practitioners of the group known as Falun Gong found a peaceful refuge in the forested hills of upstate New York. But …

China is likely using lungs taken from living political prisoners to treat coronavirus patients, a doctoral researcher told Breitbart News, confirming revelations by a Chinese labor camp survivor during an event on Capitol Hill Tuesday.

China targets imprisoned religious minorities for organ harvesting, particularly from its Falun Gong and predominantly Muslim Uyghur communities.

Chinese labor camp survivor Yu Ming is a practitioner of Falun Gong, a spiritual movement that Beijing considers a dangerous anti-communist cult.

What The Rest Of The World Can Learn From Taiwan’s Success Containing Coronavirus

At this critical period when the publicly feared coronavirus is amplifying in numbers worldwide, it’s clear the Taiwanese government has done something right in its containment measures.

By any measure, Taiwan should have been the second-hardest-hit area of the coronavirus outbreak outside mainland China. Taiwan is less than 100 miles away from mainland China and receives an estimated 3 million mainland tourists annually. Furthermore, more than 1 million Taiwanese travel to mainland China each year.

The expansive travel volume across the Taiwan strait reached its peak during the recent lunar New Year celebration in January, as it always has. Yet this densely populated island of 23 million people has only 44 confirmed cases of the virus to date, and just one death so far.

Taiwan hasn’t experienced the need to cancel schools nor lock down major cities. At this critical period when the publicly feared coronavirus is amplifying in numbers worldwide, it’s clear the Taiwanese government has done something right in its containment measures.

How did Taiwan do it?

Major Networks Caught Blatantly Editing Out Biden Threatening Autoworker

Via Billy

An AR 14 on top of that! :)

The moment caught on camera between former VP and current Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden and an autoworker who dared question him has gone more than viral. At this point, the question is whether or not the left can spin the moment to their advantage.

The problem is that it’s hard to do that when Biden was literally caught threatening physical violence against the autoworker.
