Ebola Virus Not Always Fatal, Anymore

#hutchreport #ebola #brantly


Almost everyone who contracts the Ebola virus ends up dead within a matter of weeks. However, that is no longer the case after an American doctor, Kent Brantly, was treated with a new medicine. Not long ago, it was announced that Dr. Brantly will soon be released from an Atlanta hospital. While Dr. Brantly is certainly not totally out of the woods yet, he is definitely on his way and that's great news for everyone.

Seems Like The World Is Falling Apart

#hutchreport #beheading #ferguson


It's difficult watching the news these days when the streets are filled with protesters, Americans are being beheaded in foreign lands and politicians in Washington don't seem to do anything but go on recess and/or vacation. My hope is the United States of America is working it's way through a transition and more good days will be ahead of us, because the alternative is something no reasonable person would want to live through.

Time To End ISIS Terror For Good

#hutchreport #terror #isis


Like many of you, I believe President Obama does not like military conflict and will almost certainly go out of his way to avoid it, if possible. However, there are times when U.S. military force should be used and that time is now when it comes to getting rid of ISIS. There is no way to reason with them and no way they can be rehabilitate, either. They must be killed or they will most certainly bring their murderous ideology to the United States of America.

While there is an outcry from leaders around the world, will Putin really pay a price for this despicable action? More than likely he will not, because no one in the world today delivers justice for bad behavior.

If You Can't Beat Him, File A Lawsuit



You probably have heard by now that Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives John Boehner plans to file a lawsuit against President Barack Obama alleging he has not faithfully executed laws that were passed by Congress. Some people may think this move brilliant, but I think it's really stupid. Even if the Speaker is successful at bringing and winning a lawsuit against a sitting President of the United States, who would decide, if he really was enforcing the laws correctly and what judge would have the power to sanction him? This lawsuit is, plain and simple, a political stunt designed to drum up conservative votes in November. What a waste of a court's time and taxpayer money. If the Congress is serious about stopping illegal activity by President Obama, then they should impeach him.

IRS Broke The Law, Now What?



An archivist testifying before Congress this week said under oath that 'the IRS broke the law' when it did not notify his agency about computer crashes that allegedly destroyed emails. This whole IRS mess is really beginning to stink to high heaven and sadly most Americans and the mainstream media could care less. Many pundits on Fox News Channel and conservative talk radio do not understand why this story is being ignored. Could it be that most Americans and members of the media view this IRS story as purely a political witch hunt? Might be. However, what is at the root of the problem here is very serious and I believe a special prosecutor should be appointed to investigate this whole targeting issue. Another thing that is making many Americans choose to not be outraged by this story is the fact most folks do not think PACS should get tax exempt status in the first place. I have no problem with conservatives, liberals or any other group trying to persuade the American people to their way of thinking, but they should not be allowed to avoid taxes in the process. While Republicans continue to beat a dead horse with this IRS mess, the real story that most Americans are outraged about - the VA hospital scandal - is not getting the deserved coverage it should.

Watched World War Z On NetFlix



A few nights ago, I was excited to see that NetFlix had added a movie called 'World War Z' to it's lineup. I'm not a big fan of Zombie movies, but I decided to give it a look see since I have enjoyed watching Brad Pitt movies in the past. Well, I got about 15-minutes into the movie before I completely lost interest. I know many of you probably loved 'World War Z', but to me it seemed like a modern day version of 'Dawn of the Dead' from several decades ago. I know it's not fair to watch 15 to 20 minutes of a movie and make a snap judgement, so I will likely try to find the right time and mood to pick up where I left off. I sure do like that feature on NetFlix where you can stop watching a movie and even months later when you want to watch it again, the computer remembers exactly where you were when you stopped watching. I haven't looked yet to see if 'World War Z' made enough money to pay for it's likely high budget, but it wouldn't surprise me - if investors in the film did not have a huge payday.

Will Anything Really Change If GOP Takes Over Congress?



It appears that Republicans are poised to take over control of both the House of Representatives and the Senate in November when nationwide elections are held. This is a likelihood simply because President Barack Obama has lost favor with the American people and like other leaders before him, appears to have lost touch with the average citizen. The United States has been a two party nation since I was born back in the 1950's and even though many people and groups have tried to change that - nothing close to a successful third party has ever emerged. While there are sharp differences between Republicans and Democrats, for the most part they are interchangeable. The founding fathers were pretty wise when they wrote the U.S. Constitution, because they made it extremely difficult for one man or political party to become too powerful. The only real chance that real change will be coming our way after the November congressional elections would revolve around how many Libertarian Republicans are elected to office. Where things stand right now, I believe there is a growing number of voters who would consider voting for a Libertarian candidate - if that person is not too far out of the mainstream. There is an ever growing number of Republicans and Democrats who are looking for new ideas and it appears that they might start migrating to Libertarian ideas - if the right candidate(s) come along.

VA Hospital Scandal Making Obama Look Really Bad



What is happening right now at the VA is nothing less than a full fledge scandal and President Barack Obama is the one person taking most of the blame. There have been problems at the VA for decades, but recent issues where thousands of retired members of the military were turned away from even getting an appointment makes this an all time new low. To the President's credit, he does appear to be concerned with what is happening at the VA. However, will that concern turn into real action that can been seen and felt by our brave retired soldiers? I really do believe President Obama has a good heart, but I also believe he is completely helpless when it comes to getting anything in the U.S. government running at an acceptable pace. It really worries me that in 10-years or so, all hospitals in the United States will be run the same way those at the VA are run in 2014. Honestly, if President Obama was not such a well liked leader – this issue might have lead to his removal from office already. There are so many problems with government control over anything and it's really sad that billions of dollars per year are being spent on everything - except funding the medical care all American service men and women have been promise, because of their service, by our government.

With Obama Falling Part, GOP Self-Destruction Can't Be Far Away



It's pretty clear to reasonable folks, that the Obama administration is completely falling apart right now. I've watched politics for decades and each time it appears that a President is in terrible shape with the American public, the other party somehow finds a way to get over confident and self-destruct. If you ask any political expert they will tell you that the GOP should clean house on Election Day, when November rolls around. When it comes to President Obama, his self-destruction was a long time coming, but once it got started – it moved at a rapid pace. Republicans have a definite pattern of self-destructing around social issues and ones involving women. President Obama can't seem to make a good decision about foreign policy or the military. Both Republicans and Democrats self-destruct politically, because they each are so dominated by extremist from both sides of the political spectrum. This November, the GOP should totally dominate congressional elections, but I doubt if they will. There is a bunch of time between now and November and with President Obama messing up so much at the present time, overconfidence will lead a few in the Republican Party to find some seemingly impossible way to shoot themselves in the foot - right before the American people vote.

Major Heart Problems Diagnosed In Hillary Clinton?



The website 'Drudge Report' has published an exclusive story this morning providing excerpts from a new book written by Edward Klein called 'Blood Feud'. In these book passages released by Drudge, it is speculated that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is in poor health. In fact, she suffers from heart problems and even has a tendency to form blood clots according to the book. According to the author of 'Blood Feud', Hillary was so ill at one point when serving as Secretary of State – she collapsed in her office at the State Department. At her own insistence, she was not taken to a hospital to be checked out. However, later when former President Bill Clinton returned home and saw how serious her condition was – he convinced her to go to a New York hospital to be checked out. It's important to keep in mind that book authors usually have an agenda when they write books about current and former politicians – so I would wait until more of the media has a chance to check out these alleged medical problems, before believing they are absolute truth.

America's Got Talent AGT On Sunday Night



In about an hour, one of my favorite TV shows, America's Got Talent, will be shown on NBC. When Howard Stern first joined the show, I admit to being reluctant as to whether or not he would be a plus or a minus. After a couple of years, I definitely believe he has added to the show – especially since he replaced Piers Morgan who I thought was terrible. Each year, AGT searches the United States looking for people who have talents that might otherwise not be discovered. My favorite year of AGT was the one when Kevin Skinner won the title, even though his career went nowhere after winning such a notable award. There have also been some contestants who were treated very bad by the judges, who I thought were very talented. Usually, those mistakes happen early on – before the public has the chance to start voting. Better close for now, because AGT is coming on TV in about 45 minutes. Enjoy the show, I know I will.

If Republicans Win Big In November, Will They Impeach President Obama?



Right now, it appears to most observers that Republicans will win big in November's congressional elections. In recent days, I have begun to wonder to myself – if the GOP takes over Congress in a big way, will they attempt to impeach the President in 2015? Frankly, the answer to that question depends entirely on whether most of the fall election winners are regular Republicans or Tea Party ones. There is a growing dislike of President Obama with most Americans, but that dislike has been more like a hatred among Tea Party voters from the beginning. Americans who consider themselves Tea Party supporters are the most conservative folks seen by any nation in generations. We must remember that just because the GOP is looking strong going into this November's elections, it has been proven time and time again that they are experts at finding ways to self-destruct at the last possible minute. That said, if the GOP does not self-destruct between now and Election Day – I consider it very likely they will attempt to impeach President Obama next year. The next question would naturally be, if Republicans try to impeach Obama – will they ultimately be successful in removing him from office? It's hard to see how impeaching President Obama would serve the long-term goals of the Republican Party, but that does not mean they would not try to accomplish it.

U.S. Border Overrun With Central American Children



There is a catastrophe happening on the U.S. / Mexico border right now and no one in Washington appears to have a clue on how to deal with the problem. Children, under the age of 18, by the thousands, are crossing the border and neither the U.S. government or the states involved have the resources to handle that many children coming to the United States who are unaccompanied by a parent or guardian. According to news reports, most of these children are making their way to the United States from Guatemala and other poor Central American countries. Many of the children who have been picked up by U.S. Border Patrol Agents claim they were told in their home country that amnesty would be granted to them, if they made it to the United States. In typical Washington fashion, Republicans are blaming President Obama for this problem – while Democrats are blaming conservative GOP lawmakers for not passing immigration reform. I've said it before and I will say it again, if the rule of law in the United States is not returned soon, this latest issue of young children crossing the U.S. border alone - will be the least of our problems.

Will The Old Tiger Woods Return To The PGA?



Next weekend, Tiger Woods will return to professional golf. Many people are now asking – if the old Tiger Woods will be returning to the game? It's been tough to watch this one time best golfer in the world struggle to put his golf game back together, again. Honestly, Tiger Woods has never regained his past glory since his wife divorced him after finding out he was cheating on her with several different women. Sometimes I wonder, if his ex-wife was his Delilah and Tiger Woods is just a modern day Samson? There is no doubt that between the reported half-a-billion dollars he paid to his ex-wife and his terrible win/loss record since the divorce, all of those affairs with other women have certainly cost Tiger Woods, dearly. While some may disagree, I hope that when Tiger Woods returns to the PGA Tour next week, the old Tiger who put fear into every other professional golfer returns. One thing is for sure, summer-time Sunday's are a lot more fun watching Tiger Woods win on the golf course, than when he is not there or playing poorly.

Did Lanna Hamann's Red Bull Addiction Lead To Her Death?



Not long ago, I wrote about a young woman from Arizona who died while on vacation in Mexico. Her family and some friends now believe she died after consuming too many Red Bull drinks - while out in the hot summer sun. I don't drink them often, but there have been occasions when I have drank a Red Bull when no hot coffee was available. From my limited experience, I had no noticeable side effects from drinking Red Bull – but I did not drink one after another in the hot summer sun, either. While I feel terrible for Lanna Hamann's friends and family, they may be looking for someone other than themselves to blame for her senseless death. Even though Lanna was a teenager, she certainly knew the dangers of drinking too much caffeine while hanging out on a summer day. Most certainly her parents knew this was a danger, but there has been nothing I have seen reported in the news media to indicate they did anything to try and get her to stop drinking so many Red Bull drinks. I was a teenager a long, long time ago – but I still remember wanting to have a good time and too often just threw caution to the wind when it came to my personal safety. If there is a lesson in Lanna Hamann's tragic death, it will be learned by her peers who maybe will think twice the next time they don't use common sense – while out having a good time. May God have mercy on her family.

Xeljanz Grows Hair In Some Alopecia Areata Patients



Last night, I watched a neat story on CNN about how an arthritis drug, Xeljanz, was able to help a young man who suffers from alopecia areata grow a full head-of-hair. Doctors do not know yet – if Xeljanz will help the millions of men who already suffer from male-pattern-baldness, but the drug company who owns patent will likely conduct studies to find out soon - if it does. Alopecia areata is a condition that, many times, causes the hair of young victims to fall out. There are many side-effects of Xeljanz, so that definitely should cause some some people to think twice before taking this already U.S. FDA approved medication. That said, I expect retail sales of Xeljanz to go through the roof – if it is proven this medication honestly grows hair. For decades, millions of people have search for a daily pill that will grow hair and help them lose weight. It now appears that maybe one of those problems will be a thing of the past in the very near future.

While the experts all claim that violent crime is on the decline, it's hard to sell those statistic to me.

Those folks are government employees and elected representatives in Washington D.C.. Almost everyday there is a new example of wrong doing by someone in government service. However, there never seems to be any punishment in our nation's Capitol to fit the crime. From the VA to the IRS, criminal behavior has been running wild in recent years – but no one has gone to jail yet or even been prosecuted for wrongdoing. I believe there is more non-violent crime in America today simply because folks back home are taking their cues from people in Washington. I don't care which political party is breaking the law. There should be equal justice for all, but right now there is NO justice at all for government wrongdoers and sadly that sickness is spreading from sea to shining sea.

17-year-old Adonus Deondre Turner, a teenager from Hampton, Virginia, was killed late Thursday night when someone shot him at his front door after ringing the doorbell. At this time, police do not have a suspect and they don't believe this was a random act of violence. The shooting occurred around 11:00PM in the 800 block of Downing Street. Turner was not at home alone, but no other people inside the house were injured. If you can help police find and arrest the person or persons responsible for this murder, please contact the local police department.
