To get you up to speed, read Guy’s eye-opening and glass-shattering post published earlier this week. In it, he explains how a “very serious series of facts,” as Gov. Mitt Romney phrased it in his exclusive interview with Salem radio host Hugh Hewitt, is raising unsettling questions about an alleged quid pro quo agreement between the Clintons and the Russians.

Weighing in, the former Republican presidential nominee stated flatly that the scandal is very “troubling” to him – and has “every earmark of bribery.”
HH: Pleased to welcome back to the program former Massachusetts Governor and 2012 Republican nominee for president, Mitt Romney. Governor Romney, always a pleasure, welcome back. 
MR: Thank you. It’s good to be with you, Hugh.
HH: Governor Romney, I know you’ve had a chance to read, I assume you’ve had a chance to read the Jo Becker/Mike McIntire New York Times piece today about the cash flowing into the Clinton Foundation from the Russians as they got control of Uranium One. What’s your reaction to this story?
MR: You know, I’ve got to tell you, I was stunned by it. I mean, it looks like bribery. I mean, there is every appearance that Hillary Clinton was bribed to grease the sale of, what, 20% of America’s uranium production to Russia, and then it was covered up by lying about a meeting at her home with the principals, and by erasing emails. And you know, I presume we might know for sure whether there was or was not bribery if she hadn’t wiped out thousands of emails. But this is a very, very serious series of facts, and it looks like bribery.
If you or a loved one suffers from a serious and debilitating disease and hope for improved treatment or a cure, the recent history of medical progress should be encouraging. Since I began practicing medicine, U.S. longevity has increased by a decade, deaths from the most common killer, cardiovascular disease, have dropped by 60%, and cancer deaths, the next most common cause, are at an all-time low. HIV-infected individuals, once doomed, live normal albeit medicated lives. Arthritis sufferers previously condemned to pain, crutches and wheelchairs enjoy relative comfort and mobility. Unfortunately, pernicious myths conspire to undermine this progress.

One common myth asserts that private industry exploits academic research to develop medical products—for which it overcharges. Critics claim if industry spent less on marketing and more on research it could charge less.

Despite its intuitive appeal, this myth fails to hold up under closer inspection. While academic research provides substantial background information used by industry as well as more limited information about potential drug targets, this information is often unreliable and generally requires substantial follow-up and further development by industry before it can be tested in humans. Start-up and established biopharmaceutical and device companies perform the overwhelming majority of such work. Consequently, 80% of new drugs and most medical devices approved by the FDA originated from inventions created solely by companies.

Furthermore, companies alone are responsible for the difficult and financially hazardous tasks of formulating, testing, and commercializing new drugs. Nearly 90% of drugs that enter human clinical trials are never approved. The financial stakes associated with such failures are enormous. Once the failure rate and cost of financing are factored in, bringing a new drug to market in the United States is now estimated to cost $2.5 billion. This cost has increased 100-fold during my lifetime, as more stringent FDA testing requirements have been engrafted on the inherent difficulty of deciphering and exploiting biology’s secrets.

Doctor joins ISIS medical team in “jihad” against the west: “I wish I’d come sooner”
Pamela Geller / Atlas Shrugs

Another doctor, affluent and Western educated, leaves everything to join the Islamic State, blowing up Obama’s and every other Western leader’s delusional narrative about poverty, disaffection and illiteracy driving Muslims to jihad.

It’s Islam.

I’ll also point out that calling those who oppose jihad terror “racists” is laughable. Islam is not a race. Just ask this blue-eyed doctor.

Herdsmen in Nigeria, rappers in Germany, doctors in Glasgow, chemical engineering students in Canada, heart surgeons in Saudi Arabia, university students in Britain, imams in America and so forth – what brings these wildly different people together? Jihad. From the Sahara to the Kalahari, London to Lisbon, Manhattan...

Sometimes a cartoon does say it all!
