You Know That Company That’s Price-Gouging For Epi Pens? It’s A Clinton Foundation Donor.

Imagine that. I’m sure that, if elected, she’ll do something about crap like this. That something may be pocketing money, but she’ll do something.

We talked about this on the show the other day, and I have a unique perspective on this, because I worked in the pharma industry for many years before becoming a Chick on the Right.  I know what it takes – and what it COSTS – to get a drug to market.  But this Mylan CEO who gave herself a 600% raise?  She is lacking a moral compass.  Period.  End of story.

And wouldn’t you know it?  The company is linked to another seahag who is also lacking a moral compass.  The Hillz herself.

Well, lookie there.

The most hypocritical part about this whole story is that Hillary Clinton is actually criticizing Mylan for “increasing the cost of its life-saving EpiPen,” even though Hillary has happily and greedily taken money from the very company she’s criticizing.

Neat.

Dr. Drew Off the Air for Speaking Ill of the Queen

Yeah, they suddenly want a “reboot.” Whatever. How dare Dr. Drew speak disparagingly about the queen! Come on CNN, literally everyone knows what you’re doing. Be honest, for once in your lives.

Via Deadline Hollywood:

“Dr. Drew and his team have delivered more than five years of creative shows, and I want to thank them for their hard work and distinctive programming,” CNN EVP Ken Jautz said in a statement confirming Pinsky’s last telecast will be September 22.

The publication frames Dr. Drew’s departure as part of a larger HLN “reboot” to revamp its programming to more “straight news fare” and adds that Pinsky’s departure is “a no-brainer, given the show’s ratings.”

However, given CNN’s open and increasingly blatant in-the-tankness for Hillary Clinton — which we’ve reported on here, here and on too many other occasions to list here — one can’t help but notice the timing of Pinksy’s cancellation vis-a-vis his publicly expressed observations about Hillary’s health.

Judge Orders New Benghazi Emails Released

U.S. District Judge William Dimitrouleas ruled that the State Department must release emails related to the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, by Sept. 13. That means even more potentially embarrassing information will dribble out weeks before the election, when American voters will be most engaged.

The material was included in almost 15,000 emails that the FBI reported this week had been recovered from files that Clinton deleted. The judge ordered the State Department to review the documents and identify those covered by the Freedom of Information Act request. The State Department must file a status report by Sept. 6 and turn over the documents a week later.

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton, whose organization sued for the records, criticized Clinton for trying to erase the material.

“It is astonishing that Hillary Clinton tried to delete and hide Benghazi emails and documents,” he said in a prepared statement. “No wonder federal courts in Florida and [Washington] D.C. are ordering the State Department to stop stalling and begin releasing the 14,900 new Clinton emails.”

University of Vermont axes UNC game over HB2

The University of Vermont has canceled its women’s basketball team’s upcoming game against the Tar Heels, citing North Carolina’s law that limits anti-discrimination protections for the LGBT community.

The Burlington Free Press reports that the Catamounts at UVM were scheduled to face the Tar Heels at the University of North Carolina’s Chapel Hill campus on Dec. 28.

I’m sorry, but that should be an automatic forfeiture with the win going to UNC. And are they going to not play games in the other states with this same law? Or is it just NC… again?

Our governor is down in the polls. I’m sorry to hear that. Because if the other douche canoe gets into office, I’m going to have a problem. I won’t be able to use public restrooms anymore, or the locker room at my gym. If all a guy has to do is claim he’s transgendered and “taking selfies” in the locker room in order to video in the locker room, then I won’t feel safe in there, and I’m not sure what to do. I guess I’ll be driving home in a wet bathing suit under my clothes in the winter from my gym.

Unintended consequences of the FDA’s e-cigarette regulations

Earlier this year, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) finalized a rule that extended the agency’s authority to regulate electronic cigarettes and related vapor products as tobacco products. However, these products do not actually contain tobacco.

In so doing, FDA started the clock ticking toward August 8, 2018, the date on which e-cigarettes, e-liquids and other related newly deemed tobacco products that do not have FDA approval to remain on the market can no longer be legally sold.

E-cigarette products can only stay on the market after this ‘predicate date’ if a manufacturer undertakes a package of research that is required by FDA to consider granting approval for a product to stay on the market.

Experts have estimated that undertaking this research package to a good standard could cost a manufacturer at least $3 million per product it wishes to keep on the market. In other words, if an e-liquid manufacturer wants to sell four different flavors of e-liquid, the manufacturer would have to pay in the region of $12 million to conduct or commission research on those four products, none of which guarantees FDA will grant approval for any of the four liquids.

Some of the major companies will be able to shoulder this financial burden, but it is highly likely that the vast majority of small and independent manufacturers will not, and so, will be put out of business.

What, then, will people who currently use e-cigarettes do if, on August 8th 2018, their preferred products are no longer legally available to buy. My research team at the Centre for Substance Use Research (CSUR) recently asked this question to more than 9,000 US-based e-cigarette users, and the results should give FDA cause for alarm.

First, 8,451 current e-cigarette users who were also former cigarette smokers were asked what they would likely do if, as a consequence of the Deeming Rule, the e-cigarette products they use right now were taken off the market. Approximately 73 percent of the vaping former smokers indicated they would ‘bulk buy’/stock up on their preferred products before the rule was implemented.

Nearly 70 percent indicated they would start to source their e-cigarettes and e-liquids from a non-licensed vendor, and so fuel a black market trade in e-cigarettes. In addition, 66 percent of vaping former smokers said they would likely start to import e-cigarettes from overseas, and 65percent  said they would start making and mixing their own e-liquids at home — in other words, they would become not merely a consumer, but also a manufacturer of e-cigarette products.

It is very likely that each of these intended responses to FDA’s regulations would pose much greater risks to the health of consumers than are being posed by the e-cigarette products that are currently being sold in stores across the US. These unintended consequences — in particular, driving consumers to an underground ‘black market’ trade in e-cigarette products of dubious manufacturing standards and unknowable toxicity — would both undermine FDA’s ability to assess the population health impact of its own rule, and undermine the FDA’s stated mission of improving and protecting the health of Americans.

There’s also a lot of folks who would return to traditional cigarettes.

But we all know that the government doesn’t seem to mind starting the roll of the black market on items they want to ban “for our own good.”

I vape. Personally, I would probably bulk buy and start mixing my own.

What a lot of people are missing in this entire thing is the large amount of big tobacco companies that have actually purchased companies like Blu e-cigarettes. The big tobacco companies are the ones that will be able to foot the bill for the FDA approval and meet their ridiculous demands. Big tobacco is behind all of this, because without the smaller manufacturers, people who vape – they assume – will be forced to buy and use the garbage they produce. And believe me… it’s all garbage. The taste is terrible and, frankly, most of them have a minimum nicotine content that is much higher than what smaller manufacturers are willing to go. I get 30-100 ml bottles that contain 3 mg of nicotine. Smaller guys also use propylene glycol, vegetable glycerine, and food grade flavoring (that’s literally it). Who the hell knows what’s in the juice from big tobacco… probably the same junk in the cigarettes.

Amazing. So, as with everything else, this isn’t for the good of the people. It’s for the good of big tobacco. Period.

Stop banning stuff!

Army confirms: Training slide lists Hillary Clinton as insider threat

An Army training presentation lists the woman who could be the next commander in chief as an insider threat, underneath the sailor who carried out the Navy Yard shooting.

A photo posted to the U.S. Army W.T.F! Moments Facebook page on Sunday shows an unclassified Army training slide on insider threats and handling classified information. An Army spokesman has since confirmed that the image is authentic.

Maj. Thomas Campbell, a U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command spokesman, confirmed that the photo showed a real training slide that was developed 18 months ago and used locally to teach best practices for handling classified information and maintaining operational security. The training slide has since been removed, he said.

“As is common with Army training requirements, the local unit was given latitude to develop their own training products to accomplish the overall training objective. This particular presentation had not been reviewed or approved by the unit’s leadership, and does not reflect the position of the Army,” Campbell said.
