5 Habits That Can Add More Than a Decade to Your Life

By Rick Pearcey • April 30, 2018, 03:18 PM

Ian Sample reports at the Guardian:

People who stick to five healthy habits in adulthood can add more than a decade to their lives, according to a major study into the impact behaviour has on lifespan.

Researchers at Harvard University used lifestyle questionnaires and medical records from 123,000 volunteers to understand how much longer people lived if they followed a healthy diet, controlled their weight, took regular exercise, drank in moderation and did not smoke.

When the scientists calculated average life expectancy, they noticed a dramatic effect from the healthy habits. Compared with people who adopted none of them, men and women who adhered to all five saw their life expectancy at 50 rise from 26 to 38 years and 29 to 43 years respectively, or an extra 12 years for men and 14 for women.

"When we embarked on this study, I thought, of course, that people who adopted these habits would live longer. But the surprising thing was how huge the effect was," says study co-author Meir Stampfer of Harvard, according to the Guardian.

Bill Cosby: From "America's Dad" to Disgraced Comic

By Rick Pearcey • April 27, 2018, 11:31 AM

BBC.com reports:

Bill Cosby was once known to millions as "America's Dad," but the comedian now faces several jail terms after being convicted of sexual assault.

His role as the benevolent, jumper-wearing Dr Cliff Huxtable in 1980s hit sitcom The Cosby Show made him a national treasure in the U.S.

But more than a dozen women accused Cosby of misconduct, and one case made it to court.

The jury failed to reach a verdict in June 2017, but a retrial led to his conviction less than a year later.

How did this man, a household name for so long in America, rise and fall so far?

Alfie Update: Tom Evans Blasts Doctors: "Third Day -- Not One Problem With Alfie"

By Rick Pearcey • April 26, 2018, 11:28 AM

Harvey Gavin reports at the U.K. Express:

Speaking outside Alder Hey Children's Hospital in Liverpool, Tom Evans said Alfie no longer requires intensive care [and that he, Mr. Evans,] struggles to believe the toddler is suffering from a neurogenerative disease.

Doctors say the 23-month-old is suffering from an incurable degenerative brain disorder and continued treatment is hopeless.

But Alfie's dad told reporters this morning: "For the third day there's been not one single problem with him. The nurses came in and said: 'Wow!' . . ."

"Alfie doesn't need intensive care anymore. Alfie is lying on the bed with one litre of oxygen going into his lungs and the rest is him," Evans said, according to the Express. "Some people say this is a miracle. It's not a miracle, it's a misdiagnosis."

Doctor for Whom Asperger Syndrome Named Helped Nazis Kill Children

By Rick Pearcey • April 23, 2018, 11:46 AM

Tamar Lapin reports at the NYPost:

The Austrian doctor for whom Asperger syndrome is named helped the Nazis kill disabled children during World War II, according to a study published Thursday.

Hans Asperger, a pediatrician who first identified the syndrome in 1944, made good with the Nazis by referring children to one of their notorious euthanasia clinics, Medical University of Vienna medical historian Herwig Czech revealed in the journal Molecular Autism.

Nearly 800 children who didn't fit into the Third Reich's criteria of "worthy to live" -- meaning they lacked "racial purity" and "hereditary worthiness" -- died at the Am Spiegelgrund clinic in Vienna between 1940 and 1945. . . .

"The children, who had physical or psychological 'defects,' were deemed undesirable and were killed through starvation and lethal injection -- though their cause of death was reported as pneumonia," Lapin continues.

"While Asperger touted himself as having shielded his patients from the Nazi regime, he was a cog in its killing machine and was rewarded for his loyalty with career opportunities, Czech found," according to Lapin.

Asperger "was responsible for depriving of their liberty many children whom he deemed incapable of existing outside institutions," Lapin reports.

Rev. Graham to Trump: Please Help Army Chaplain Being Persecuted by LGBT Enforcers

By Rick Pearcey • April 20, 2018, 09:33 AM

Michael Chapman writes at CNSNews.com:

Evangelical Christian Rev. Franklin Graham called upon President Donald Trump "to do something about" an Army chaplain, who is a Baptist, and who faces "serious punishment" because he refused to allow a lesbian couple to participate in one of his marriage retreats. 

"Mr. President, I hope you will be able to do something about this," said Rev. Graham in an April 18 post on Facebook. "You are the commander in chief of the U.S. Armed Forces."

"Army Chaplain Scott Squires is being punished for doing his job," said Graham. "He's facing serious punishment for explaining to a soldier that he couldn't conduct a marriage retreat that would include same-sex couples -- because of his belief in the biblical definition of marriage. . . ."

"When Chaplain Squires realized that a same-sex couple wanted to participate in his marriage retreat, he explained they could not but he also sought to arrange a retreat for the couple with a chaplain who would allow their participation," Chapman writes. "However, this apparently was not acceptable to the lesbians and the pro-LGBT enforcers in the Army."

The Enemy in Our Schools: Should Anti-American Marxist Set History Curriculum for American Schools?

By Rick Pearcey • April 19, 2018, 11:34 AM

Lloyd Billingsley answers at Frontpagemag.com:

"If you’ve read Marx, there’s really no reason to read Howard Zinn," notes author Daniel Flynn, but many have read Zinn's million-selling A People’s History of the United States.

As Rutgers history professor David Greenberg notes in a 2013 New Republic article headlined "Agit-Prof," Zinn's famous book is "a pretty lousy piece of work."

Even so, it gets great reviews within a circle of Marxist academics such as Eric Foner, leftist rockers such as Rage Against the Machine, and actors such as Matt Damon, who in Good Will Hunting tells his psychiatrist that A People’s History will "knock you on your a--."

For Howard Zinn, America was evil and capitalism bad -- except for his lucrative publishing deal, and prestigious professorship at Boston University. Zinn was pretty quiet about the Soviet Union and what he might have done during the Stalin-Hitler Pact, but Mao Tse-Tung's China was the closest thing to a "people's government."

Eric Holder: "I'm Thinking About" Running for President

By Rick Pearcey • April 18, 2018, 10:45 AM

On MSNBC: "I'm thinking about it but I've not made any determinations" -- Newsmax.

No worries for Eric running for prez. Comey's already written the exoneration letter.

Plus, Eric could pardon Jimmy.

Victory is well-nigh assured, of course. For one thing, Brennan's support should garner most of the Communist U.S.A. vote.

By the way, Comey reminds me of the Washington Generals.

Wells Fargo Stems the Tide: Not a Bank's Job to Set U.S. Gun Policy

By Rick Pearcey • April 16, 2018, 08:57 AM

A.W.R. Hawkins reports at Breitbart:

Wells Fargo stemmed the tide of the push for new financial restrictions on gun makers and sellers by stressing that it is not a bank's job to set U.S. gun policy.

Wells Fargo believes firearm policy is a debate for Congress instead.

According to Reuters, Wells Fargo CEO John Shrewsberry said, "The best way to make progress on these issues is through the political and legislative process. In the meantime, Wells Fargo is engaging our customers that legally manufacture firearms and other stakeholders on what we can do together to promote better gun safety in our communities."

"Wells Fargo's refusal to place new regulations or stipulations on legal firearm manufacturers represents a break with Citigroup and Bank of America," Hawkins writes.

Biggest Black Lives Matter Facebook Page Is Fake -- Report

By Rick Pearcey • April 10, 2018, 10:49 AM

Simon Kent reports at Breitbart:

An Australian trade union organizer has been suspended amid claims he ran a fake Black Lives Matter Facebook page that siphoned off hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations.

The page garnered almost 700,000 followers -- dwarfing the Black Lives Matter movement's official page -- before it was suspended by Facebook. 

It is alleged some of the bank accounts where the money was transferred were in Australia and it was unclear how much was provided to genuine causes -- if at all.

The scam site is claimed to have collected money through online fundraisers and solicited more than $US100,000 in donations, according to a CNN report..

"Ian MacKay, the official in question, worked at the hard left National Union of Workers and has dozens of websites related to black rights registered under his name, including blackpowerfist.com," according to Breitbart.

"Mr. Mackay did not respond to questions from CNN but said, 'My domain name buying and selling is a personal hobby'," Kent reports.

Hungarians Defy Soros, Give Crushing Win to Pro-Christian Viktor Orban

By Rick Pearcey • April 9, 2018, 03:59 PM

Michael Brown writes at LifeSiteNews.com:

If the Huffington Post is to be believed, a bigoted Prime Minister in Hungary is leading the nation in a dangerous, ultra-right direction, to the consternation of the populace.

If the election results are to be believed, a courageous Hungarian leader is standing against a sea of political correctness, with the support of the populace.

I'd say in this case, the Hungarian people have a better sense of reality than does the Huffington Post.

"Sunday's elections resulted in a decisive win for Prime Minister Viktor Orban and his Fidesz party. (This will mark Orban's third consecutive term)," Brown continues.

"It was also a victory against Hungarian-born billionaire George Soros, who actively supported the opposition liberal (and globalist) candidates. That's why," Brown writes, "a Breitbart headline proclaimed, "Bloody Nose for Brussels: Landslide Triumph as Anti-Globalist, Anti-Soros Orban Wins Third Term in Hungary."

"We Might Kill You": Georgia Sheriff Warns Lawless Visitors

By Rick Pearcey • April 6, 2018, 02:21 PM

Shefiff Mike Jolley of Harris County, Ga., has a new welcome sign that reads:

Our citizens have concealed weapons.

If you kill someone, we might kill you back.

We have ONE jail and 356 cemeteries.

Enjoy your stay!

"I spent 20 years in the army to give everyone the right to disagree with me or anyone else," Jolley told Fox & Friends in 2015, according to Fox News. "If they disagree, they can voice that opinion. But if it offends them, truly offends them, maybe they're in the wrong country."

Media's Deafening Silence on the YouTube Shooter

By Rick Pearcey • April 5, 2018, 12:50 PM

Why the silence? Because a "vegan animal rights activist doesn't fit the agenda," states the kicker at Frontpagemag.com.

Lloyd Billingsley writes:

For the first time in its history, gunshots rang out at YouTube headquarters in San Bruno, California, on Tuesday. Three people had been hit and the shooter was dead, but the motive for the attack remained mysterious. Even so, gun-control barker Sen. Dianne Feinstein was quick to weigh in.

"Only in America is a shooter unleashing gunfire in an office building a common occurrence," the California Democrat said in a statement. "Only in America are people evacuating the scene of a shooting with their hands on their heads is a familiar sight."

Like fellow Democrats Nancy Pelosi and Jackie Speier, Feinstein mentioned nothing about the shooter. The old-line establishment media were expecting a Republican male, an NRA member with a MAGA hat out to take down Hillary voters.

"As it turned out, the shooter was a woman and not a right-wing conservative type at all. In fact," Billingsley notes, "it wasn't even close."

Warner Todd Huston writes at Breitbart:

Chicago police are investigating a report that a man entered the women's bathroom and exposed himself to a little girl in a South Loop location, ABC 5 reported.

A woman and her daughter reported that the man walked in on them in the women's bathroom of the Target store at 1154 S. Clark just after 4 PM on March 25.

He told them he had to use the restroom, the woman said, but instead, he pushed his way into the stall her daughter was using and pulled down his pants in front of the child. He then fled, the mother told police.

"We look forward to having Laura Ingraham back, hosting her program next Monday when she returns from spring vacation with her children."

Shapiro: Fake Media Go Nuts After Sinclair Anchors Read Anti-Fake News Message

By Rick Pearcey • April 2, 2018, 01:04 PM

Ben Shapiro writes at DailyWire:

Over the weekend, mass panic broke out among media types over Sinclair Broadcasting's use of local anchors across the country to push out a message about the prevalence of unvetted stories on social media.

After providing video of the Sinclair message -- and a transcript -- Shapiro offers this analysis:

Now, here's the thing: the actual text of this universally-issued missive has nothing to do with Trump. Go ahead. Check it. There's nothing about Trump there.

And complaints about one-sided news and "sharing of false and biased" news on social media have been absolutely common on the Left. If this same message were read by Brian Stelter on CNN, word for word, nobody would have any problem with it.

The media are simply assuming that the message is pro-Trump because Sinclair's owners are pro-Trump. But the ads aren't for Trump: they're a plea for viewers to keep watching rather than turning off the TV and using Facebook for news consumption -- the exact same plea made every day in the pages of The New York Times, at MSNBC, and in the halls of Congress by Democrats who claim that social media won Trump the election.

"The leftist media's universal rush to condemn Sinclair for the message is actually more lockstep political than Sinclair's message, which is lockstep but not political," Shapiro continues.

"Kimmel's tweet is actually more telling than it looks: all the statements about Sinclair being 'dangerous for our democracy' are just as collectivized and unanimous, and far more political, than Sinclair's top-down edict to read an apolitical message on air," Shapiro concludes.

By the way, a "majority of Americans -- 77 percent -- said traditional news outlets are 'fake news,' according to a Monmouth University poll published Monday," the Washington Times reports today.

The need for honest, objective reporting -- that is, real journalism -- is greater than ever.
