    ... Yes, you can make your own anti-biotics at home. Iíll show you how to make a really super powerful one (itís easy to do). Anyone can do it. Most people will want to do this in their backyards or on a patio. But I suppose you could do it indoors too. This one Iíll show you how to make is way more complex than anything the pharmaceutical companies can produce, yet it is simpler and easier to make. No, you wonít need a lab of chemistry set. No, you wonít need microscopes or chemicals. Nope, you wonít even need...

    Two Canadian anti-vaxx parents have been accused of letting their 19-month-old son die of meningitis, a treatable disease for which they refused medical care and antibiotics. Instead, they tried and failed to heal their son with home remedies in March 2012. David and Collet Stephan tried to cure a disease that infects the fluid around the spinal cord and brain with such treatments as olive leaf extract, whey protein, water with maple syrup, and juice with frozen berries. After young Ezekiel continued to suffer for two weeks, the Stephans changed treatments to apple cider vinegar, horseradish root, hot peppers, onion,...

    We have both had the privilege of heading the Office of the Solicitor General during different administrations. We may have different ideas about the ideal candidate in the next presidential election, but we agree on one important principle: voters should be able to choose from all constitutionally eligible candidates, free from spurious arguments that a U.S. citizen at birth is somehow not constitutionally eligible to serve as President simply because he was delivered at a hospital abroad. The Constitution directly addresses the minimum qualifications necessary to serve as President. In addition to requiring thirty-five years of age and fourteen years...

    I shall show that the Constitution contemplates two types of Citizen: those that acquire their citizenship at birth and those who acquire their Citizenship at a later time. The first are referred to in the Constitution as 'natural born' and the second is a class of citizen not specifically named but implied and are those we consider 'naturalized citizens.' The word 'citizen' including derivative forms appears only eleven times in the Constitution. We shall look at each instance and derive what is possible from each usage and instance. By the end, I hope to have exhaustively shown that within...

    Ted Cruz is a Naturalized Citizen, not "Natural Born" by Farmer John The question of who qualifies as a "natural born citizen" may be close in some cases, but the case of Ted Cruz is easy. Constitutionally speaking, Cruz is a naturalized citizen, not "natural born." Regarding citizenship, the Constitution grants Congress power over a uniform rule of naturalization, not over citizenship generally. Any citizen whose citizenship is derived from an act of Congress is thus a naturalized citizen, constitutionally speaking, and thus not "natural born." The basic principle is stated in United States v. Wong Kim Ark, 169...

    Organic agriculture is an unscientific, heavily subsidized marketing gimmick that misleads and rips off consumers. The federal government should stop promoting and subsidizing it. Consumers of organic foods are getting both more and less than they bargained for. On both counts, itís not good. Many people who pay the huge premiumóoften more than a hundred percentĖfor organic foods do so because theyíre afraid of pesticides. If thatís their rationale, they misunderstand the nuances of organic agriculture. Although itís true that synthetic chemical pesticides are generally prohibited, there is a lengthy list of exceptions listed in the Organic Foods Production Act,...

    Next week, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear cases that will likely determine whether same-sex marriage will become a legal nationwide. The justices have rolled four cases together that will allow them to decide two questions: must states recognize other states' gay marriages, and does the Constitution require states to allow same-sex marriage? Some believe the justices have already decided to create that right before hearing the case. But others say the matter is far from decided. On Wednesday, a panel discussion at the Family Research Council was swimming upstream against conventional thought on the issue. That is, it's a...

    Naturally occurring changes in winds, not human-caused climate change, are responsible for most of the warming on land and in the sea along the West Coast of North America over the last century, a study has found. The analysis challenges assumptions that the buildup of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere has been a significant driver of the increase in temperatures observed over many decades in the ocean and along the coastline from Alaska to California. Changes in ocean circulation as a result of weaker winds were the main cause of about 1 degree Fahrenheit of warming in the northeast Pacific...

One earthquake recorded at 3.8 magnitude by the U.S. Geological Survey rocked houses in several communities around central Oklahoma at 7:42 a.m. local time. Another about two hours earlier in the same part of the state, north of Oklahoma City, was recorded at 2.9 magnitude, USGS said. Those two were preceded by two more, at 2.6 magnitude, and 2.5 magnitude, that also rolled...

    The word ďnaturalĒ is treated in a way peculiar in the extreme. This perhaps reflects our confused ideas about nature, or perhaps darker, more sinister misconceptions are at work. There is a strange dichotomy between the positive connotation of ďnaturalĒ in one realm (that encompassing health, food, medicine, environmental management, and the like) and the negative connotation of ďnaturalĒ in another realm (social and political organization). If you use the adjective ďnaturalĒ in conjunction with objects of the first group, eg natural remedies, natural substances, natural environment, it is almost invariably taken as a virtue, a good qualitative appreciation....

    Rosstat recently released their latest batch of demographic statistics. Nothing particularly bizarre or unexpected happened, but the data show that births have held steady at their 2012 level while deaths have modestly decreased. This means that, if the trends from the January-September period are maintained for the entirety of 2013, Russia will record natural population growth of roughly 13,000, its first natural population growth since the collapse of the Soviet Union. Now in one sense natural growth of 13,000 out of a total population of 143,000,000 sounds puny and unimpressive. However, as I never tire of reminding people, it wasnít...

After being the number one overall pick in 2010, he seemed to languish in the minor leagues.

Osmanís body lays on the mud floor; his mother, Mumini Ibrahim, sitting beside it, with Osmanís twin sister Kadida nestled against her breast....

    Legal documents indicate the Port of St. Helens is talking with a coal export terminal developer, the first sign that Oregon could be in the mix to export coal to meet ever-growing Asian demand. Evidence of Port of St. Helens interest in coal stems from a complaint filed by Columbia Riverkeeper, which opposes coal export, asking a judge to require the port to release coal-related documents. ... The activity has caught the attention of Gov. John Kitzhaber, a Democrat with strong backing from environmental groups. In a statement to The Oregonian Tuesday, Kitzhaber stopped short of taking a position on...

    Less than a decade ago, major American energy companies were investing billions in constructing new terminals for importing liquefied natural gas ó the cooled, dense state of methane that makes it economical for it to be transported by ship. Today, some of those same companies are contemplating spending billions to retrofit those facilities in order to export LNG. What happened in the interim? Natural gas boomed in the U.S., thanks to major discoveries of unconventional gas deposits in shale rock and new extraction techniques. In 2011, the U.S. Energy Information Administration raised its estimate for ďtechnically recoverableĒ natural gas reserves...

    Original posted at http://jeffersonsrebels.blogspot.com/2011/05/native-born-citizen-yes-but-gov-bobby.html ~~~~~~~~ Gov. Bobby Jindahl is a good, conservative Governor for the State of Louisiana. Unfortunately, similar to Sen. Marco Rubio, Gov. Jindal cannot be classified as a natural-born citizen, and thus he also is not constitutionally eligible to run for President.† I know this is a sad thought for conservatives like myself, but if we wish to protect and uphold the Constitution, we must look to history for an explanation. Jindal was born in Louisiana, as his recently released birth certificate attests (below). However, at the time of his birth, both of his parents were recent...

    PHOENIX | The state of Arizona has moved onto contentious political territory once again with the legislative passage of a bill requiring President Obama and other presidential candidates to prove their U.S. citizenship before their names can appear on the stateís ballot. Opponents say Arizonaís bill, approved late last week, gives the state another black eye after lawmakers approved a controversial immigration enforcement law last year. Gov. Jan Brewer, who has until the end of business Thursday to act on the proposal, declined to say whether she would sign the measure, which would make Arizona the first state to enact...
  • Energy dependence: A completely unnecessary national security risk

    In the early 1970s, Americaís dependence on foreign oil was a little over 20 percent. Today, our dependence on foreign oil is over 65 percent. We have become more and more energy dependent because we have never had a serious energy independence strategy, and we still do not have one. Energy independence is within our grasp because we have plenty of energy natural resources. We have billions of barrels of oil, plenty of natural gas reserves, more coal than any other country in the world, lots of places we could build dams for hydroelectricity and some of the safest nuclear...

    According to the Congressional Research Service, which nation has the largest energy reserves of all? Surprise! It is the United States. Peter C. Glover of the Energy Tribune writes: In case anyone missed it, let me repeat something that is of a magnitude of 10 on the scale of news-quakes for Joe Public USA: America's combined energy resources are, according to a new report from the Congressional Research Service (CSR), the largest on earth. They eclipse Saudi Arabia (3rd), China (4th) and Canada (6th) combined - and that's without including America's shale oil deposits and, in the future, the potentially...

    Even on the heels of another nasty winter, the Obama administration hangs on to climate change as an article of liberal faith. EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson remains steadfast in her desire to unilaterally impose massive new greenhouse-gas regulations on energy producers. And if that doesn't work, the administration is ready to move on costly "renewable-energy standards."

    A top House Democrat is urging EPA to quickly toughen regulation of natural gas drilling following a New York Times report on the discharge of dangerous pollutants into rivers that supply drinking water. The Times Ė citing internal documents from EPA and elsewhere Ė claims that chemicals and radioactive elements in wastewater from gas projects are creating ďdangers to the environment and health [that] are greater than previously understood.Ē Rep. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) sent EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson a detailed letter Saturday calling for ďimmediate action.Ē ďI am outraged that state and federal regulators were evidently well aware of the...

    For a list of the greenest 2011 model-year vehicles, there sure are a lot of traditional gasoline engines among the top 12 cars ranked by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy. The council's 14th annual ratings of the most eco-friendly cars on the market include internal combustion models such as the Smart Fortwo, the Ford Fiesta and the Hyundai Elantra. (Snip) The battery manufacturing and disposal processes -Ė which can be emissions-laden and toxic -Ė were also factored into the calculations and knocked electricity-dependent vehicles down a few rungs.
