The fine journalists over at the Washington Free Beacon have figured out why there’s not any money for an Ebola vaccine. It’s because the National Institutes of Health has been too busy trying to figure out why lesbians get fat.
The Free Beacon reports the NIH squandered nearly 40 million dollars on questionable studies. All the while their director poor-mouthed Congress – alleging they had no money to spend on an Ebola vaccine.
“Frankly, if we had not gone through our 10-year slide in research support, we probably would have had a vaccine in time for this that would’ve gone through clinical trials and would have been ready,” said NIH Director Francis Collins, blaming budget cuts for his agency’s failure to develop a vaccine for the deadly virus.
So where’d all that cash go?
For starters they spent $2,873,440 on why lesbians are obese and $692,697 to figure out why gay men get syphilis in Peru.Have you ever wondered about the plight of postpartum depression in “invisible sexual minority women”? That study set back the NIH to the tune of $718,770.
That makes the $105,066 they spent to study schizophrenic gay Canadians seem like a bargain.
They also squandered your hard-earned money on origami condoms, a study to learn why fat women have a harder time getting dates and a fruit and vegetable puppet show.
The NIH had nearly $40 million to find an Ebola vaccine but they spent our money on dancing kumquats?
I don’t mean to tell the NIH how to do their job but it seems to me they could have saved a lot of cash by just telling the lesbians to just put down the HoHos.
School Superintendent David Cash is sympathetic with moms and dads and students but he says their hands are tied because of Mrs. Obama’s effort to fight childhood obesity. Federal guidelines now limit the number of calories based on a child’s age.
Superintendent Cash says kids are going home hungry. So I think I’ve come up with a solution to Mrs. Obama’s meddling. I propose the next official State Dinner should meet the same nutritional guidelines that schools have to abide by.
Let’s see how the First Lady enjoys noshing on bean curd and processed lunch meat.
So before you board your flight to OshKosh be sure to leave your pitchforks and chainsaws at home.
Also banned are fake butcher knives, guns, axes, grenades, bombs, swords and machetes. Apparently you are allowed to carry a lightsaber.
While you can pack replica weapons you cannot pack replica weapons of mass destruction. So it’s best to leave your land mines and rocket launchers in your parent’s basement. And it’s probably not a good idea to come dressed up like an Ebola patient either.
You might get pulled over for the old “Bend and Cough” treatment.
Ordering them to hand over any sermons dealing with homosexuality, gender identity, and the lesbian mayor. The pastors say they will defy the government’s demand a decision that could lead to jail time.
Meanwhile, Attorney General Abbott is demanding the city rescind the subpoenas. He called their actions a direct assault on religious liberty said they were aggressive and invasive and show no regard for the First Amendment.
Yesterday the mayor admitted the subpoenas were overly broad. But as of this morning they had not rescinded the subpoenas.
Houston’s city attorney says he has a right under the law to subpoena the sermons of five pastors who oppose a non-discrimination law. I first told you about this egregious attack on religious liberty Tuesday.
John Luke Robertson made quite the splash this week.
The 19-year-old Duck Dynasty star announced his engagement to Mary Kate McEachern, his best friend.
The eldest son of Willie and Korie Robertson is following an example set by his parents. They, too, married young.
“I know my parents married young as well, and they have always been examples of what ‘could be’ to me,” he told US Weekly. “Fast-forward 22 years and they are more in love than ever, and I hope Mary Kate and I are the same way in the years to come. God has truly blessed us.”
But John Luke and Mary Kate are bucking a national trend. Heritage Foundation is out with a new study that shows more young people are waiting to get married. One in five have never said their I do’s an all time high.
No one quite seems to know why many say the economy is an issue. others say social taboos just aren’t taboos anymore. So a good number of folks just live together.
It’s a troubling statistic but not surprising. The modern family is under assault from Hollywood and from Washington. The values of our grandparents seem to be from a bygone age.
Marriage has been redefined. What was once a covenant before God, is now a covenant before man.
Houston’s first openly lesbian mayor is going after Christian pastors who oppose the city’s new non-discrimination law.
At least five pastors were served subpoenas ordering them to hand over any sermons they delivered on homosexuality or gender identity. They also want copies of any correspondence the pastors had with church members.
The subpoenas are just the latest twist over the so-called bathroom bill. The law was passed in May, it allows men who identify as women to use the lady’s room. Those pastors who refuse to hand over their sermons, could be arrested!
Friends I predicted this would happen in my new book God Less America. I predicted the government and radical LGBT activists would target pastors and churches. This is what intimidation looks like, folks.
And it should serve as a wake up call to every pastor in America.
It marks the second year in a row they have banned and then reversed a ban on the club. An attorney for the school district gave no reason for the reversal but it’s good news for founders John Raney and Jeremy Johnson.
The two teenage boys acquired the services of Liberty Institute a law firm that specializes in religious liberty cases. The Three Village Central School District made the right decision. It was under duress, but they made the right decision.
After two consecutive years, let’s just hope they’ve learned their lesson and will stop bullying Christian teenagers.
Anyway I wanted to give you an update on our God Less America Book Tour. I delivered speeches at the Masters College, Grace Community Church, and Calvary Chapel in Chino Valley.
About 10 thousand of our readers and listeners dropped by to say howdy including a three star general and NASA astronaut Jeff Williams. I was in high cotton as we say back home. Lots of folks out there clinging to their guns and religion as President Obama once said.
Our fan of the week award goes to Linda Bezinna, of Huntington Beach. She drove fifty miles to hear me speak and she came bearing gifts Nutter Butters and Sweet Tea.
But the facts are not in dispute. the nurse was wearing the necessary protective gear for handing an Ebola patient.
So what was the breach in protocol? Now the CDC is warning there could be even more Ebola patients. Are they expected more breaches in protocol? I suspect the truth is the CDC has no idea how the nurse contracted Ebola.
Just like I have no idea why President Obama would allow anyone with an incurable disease to come across our border in the first place.
