    In November 2016, when then-President-elect Trump was assembling his cabinet, we noted Mika Brzezinski trying to derail President Trump's possible pick of Rudy Giuliani as Secretary of State by hinting that Rudy had been "drinking a lot" during a meeting with Trump. Mika was back at her not-so-subtle intimations about Rudy's imbibing on today's Morning Joe. Commenting on what could be seen as criticisms of the President that Giuliani had made in an interview with The Atlantic, Mika twice wondered out loud about "what time" Giuliani had made his comments. As an explanation of Rudy's candid tone, Mika twice suggested...

    A stiff upper lip – and a strong drink – are how British Prime Minister Theresa May got through a politically punishing week. Calling her husband, Philip, her “rock,” May said when a revolt erupted among members of her party on Wednesday, the first thing he did was pour her a whiskey. May revealed in an interview with the Daily Mail how her husband supported her during “a pretty heavy couple of days.” She is battling to preserve her position as prime minister after her government struck the long-sought divorce agreement with the European Union, known as Brexit. She laid...

    You can expect a "drinking checkup" when you visit the doctor. All adults, including pregnant women, should be screened for unhealthy alcohol use by their primary care physicians, the United States Preventive Services Task Force advises. For those patients who drink above the recommended limits, doctors should provide brief counseling to help them reduce their drinking, according to the new task force statement published Tuesday in the medical journal JAMA. As far as teens, the independent panel of medical experts came up empty. The task force said it did not find enough evidence to make a recommendation for or against...

    The standards being applied to Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s fitness for high office would have killed the presidential candidacy of Barack Obama, among other recent Democrats (Clinton and Kennedy, for starters). Bill Clinton has adopted a low public profile, and deployed Hillary’s ”Bimbo Eruptions” squad to silence and discredit the women “survivors” of his sexual aggression. But Barack Obama went on the record in 2001, and nobody cared about behavior in high school they now feign outrage over in the case of judge Kavanaugh. Kudos to Ryan Saavedra of The Daily Wire for uncovering a video from 17 years ago...

    As a young man Obama was a smart guy who didn?t put much effort into his school. He liked to goof off, chase girls and play basketball. And then he started drinking and smoking pot and even used coke when he could afford it. And then something happened during college that made he smartened up and realize that he was wasting his life. He turned his life around and become the success that he is today. As a young man Bush was a smart guy who didn?t put much effort into school either. Some time after school he started drinking...

    WASHINGTON — A Yale classmate of Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh’s accused him on Sunday of a “blatant mischaracterization” of his drinking while in college, saying that he often saw Judge Kavanaugh “staggering from alcohol consumption.” The classmate, Chad Ludington, who said he frequently socialized with Judge Kavanaugh as a student, said in a statement that the judge had been untruthful in testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee when he had denied any possibility that he had ever blacked out from drinking. Mr. Ludington said that Judge Kavanaugh had played down “the degree and frequency” of his drinking, and that the...
  • Pop star David Cassidy said he lied about dementia, drinking

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Former teen idol David Cassidy did not have dementia, as he claimed before he died, and lied about giving up drinking, the singer told the makers of a documentary about him in the months before his death. Cassidy, 67, who shot to fame in the 1970s TV show "The Partridge Family," died of organ failure at age 67 in Florida in November 2017, nine months after declaring he was fighting dementia in a bid to stave off reports about odd behaviour. But in an excerpt released on Wednesday from documentary "David Cassidy: The Last Session," Cassidy...

    Scientists examined some of the reasons as to why people drink alcohol. Of course, some of these reasons can be personal - a special occasion, habit, outing with a loved one, or Friday evening. However, these are all specific occasions. It is important to consider what a person’s motivation is when they drink during these times. What is it that they want to achieve? This study is not simply about those who are alcoholics. Scientists in this study were interested in the behavior of all drinkers without exception, even if a person drinks only once a year and solely for...

    North Korean leader Kim Jong Un keeps his citizens on a tight leash, according to defectors, but the leader has now constricted his control even further by banning North Koreans from drinking and singing, according to a new report. Citizens have been banned from participating in “any gatherings related to drinking, singing and other entertainment,” Yonhap News Agency reported Monday. The North Korean regime is also “strengthening control of outside information.”

    Heavy drinking can lead to a number of serious health problems, including increased risk of cancer, heart disease, and dementia, but consuming even moderate levels of alcohol could be dangerous, as well, new research suggests. The study, published in The BMJ, finds that moderate drinkers were three times more likely to experience a decline in mental skills than people who drank no alcohol at all. For the study, researchers analyzed data on weekly alcohol intake in 550 healthy British men and women over a period of 30 years. The participants had an average age of 43 at the start of...

    A Trump veto cannot be overridden and the Lib-Demo- Rhinos know it. No mistake, this terrifies them, and no amount of involuntary elitist chastening can change this. Yes, we are on to you, and it just doesn't matter anymore. A Trump veto takes away the pressure that has intimidated the Republicans for decades. Now, the question may be asked, " Has Republican intimidation been sincere, or simply an excuse to go along with the same interests that move the Democrats? ". We will see. If they are not sincere, they must be replaced. What is absolutely required, is to kill...

    If a tough new proposal in Utah becomes law, just a few drinks — or even a few swigs — could put you over the limit for drunk driving. An effort is underway in the state to lower the legal blood-alcohol concentration for driving to .05 — a first in the nation. Currently, all 50 states have a .08 cap, eschewing suggestions from the National Transportation Safety Board to redefine what constitutes drunk driving.

    Do a few evening beers make your mornings un-beer-able? Does a vodka martini make your brain feel shaken, or stirred? Has a Dark ‘N’ Stormy been clouding your thoughts? For most people, the occasional night out is not a big deal — but when a hangover becomes a regular part of your weekend routine it’s a sign something might not be right. It’s an alarming statistic that one in five Australian adults regularly drink harmful amounts of alcohol. This chronic alcohol use can cause liver failure, stomach ulcers, bleeding problems, damaged nerves, injured brain cells and an increased risk of...

They will then deliberately purge during or afterward. The main point of drunkorexia is to cut down on calories and instead save them for drinking.

    A Lexington woman is sentenced to 20 years in prison after a 15-year-old boy dies of alcohol poisoning at a party at her home. 15-year-old Nicholas Faught died at the party allegedly hosted by Tonya Moss and Justin Moore in March of 2015. At the sentencing, the victim's mother gave her testimony, the whole time choking back tears and looking straight at Moss saying she will never understand what her family is going through. The defendant also gave her testimony, claiming she did not know about the party and thought her son was only having a bonfire with a few...
