 Traditional Easter celebrations have been cancelled in Egypt 
over security fears after ISIS killed over 45 people with suicide bombs 
in two churches on Palm Sunday.
The attacks came months after ISIS vowed to eradicate Christianity from Egypt, which comprises about 10% of the population.

“Christians in Egypt are concerned about their safety during this holy week. Safety is not guaranteed in spite of all the extra security measurements, people are worried someone could sneak into a church and leave a bomb,” an Egyptian Christian, who wished not to be identified, told Express. “However, I was in Church last night and we had lots of extra security placed there by the security department in our neighborhood.”
“It is too early to tell what the outcome of the state of emergency will be but it will give the government free hand to take extra measures such as instantly capturing of suspects and trying to stop suspects before they commit attacks.”

“We do have strong concerns especially Saturday evening when the main Easter service starts and ends at midnight. It is one of the most heavily attended services of the year,” he added.
Egyptian president Abdel Fatah el-Sisi declared a three-month state of emergency following the Palm Sunday attacks, deploying the military across the country and restricting freedom of movement in an effort to protect Christians and “vital and important infrastructure,” and halt further ISIS attacks.
“I ask Egyptians to bear the pain,” el-Sisi said, warning that the war against the jihadists would be “long and painful.”
The anonymous Christian pointed out that “much of the population is either illiterate or very poorly educated,” which are ideal conditions for ISIS to recruit new jihadis.
“Christians are considered infidels, following a corrupt faith, reading a corrupt bible,” the Christian said. “They will blindly follow teaching of those who uphold the conception that Christians are infidels.”
Some Christians are set to defy the intimidation and attend more subdued and limited Easter services with armed guards and “without any festive manifestations.”

 BREAKING: Japan Preparing to Evacuate 60,000 Citizens From South Korea

Japan is finalizing plans to evacuate 60,000 of its citizens from South Korea in the event of war as tensions between the United States and North Korea continue to build.
Japan’s National Security Council has held urgent discussions on how it would provide safe passage for its citizens if a major crisis arose out of a potential North Korean nuclear test, which some have predicted could happen this weekend.
Japanese authorities are also readying for a potential wave of North Korean refugees to pour into the country, amongst whom could be hidden spies and agents, Japanese media reported.

“Besides commercial ships and planes, Japan would want to send military aircraft and ships to assist in the evacuation if the South Korean government agreed,” reports Press TV.
The official who revealed the plan declined to be identified, citing the “sensitivity” of the topic. A Japanese ruling party lawmaker and a government source also told Reuters this week that authorities in Japan were preparing for an influx of North Korean refugees, but that such preparations were being kept secretive so as not to stir public anxiety.
Millions of citizens in Seoul and other major South Korean cities could be at risk if North Korea decides to retaliate against U.S. aggression.
It was also reported yesterday that North Korea has evacuated 600,000 citizens from Pyongyang because the city does not have enough bunkers to shelter its entire population. although the veracity of that report was subsequently questioned.
North Korea’s Vice foreign minister Han Song Ryol told the Associated Press today that the country is prepared to use its most “powerful nuclear deterrent” if the U.S. launched a pre-emptive strike.
NBC reported yesterday that the Trump administration could launch a conventional pre-emptive strike if it suspects North Korea is about to follow through on a nuclear weapons test, although this was subsequently denied by Pentagon officials.
 China Suspends Flights to North Korea, 
Vessels and Aircraft Avoiding Area
 Published on Apr 14, 2017
In the latest escalation over what may be an imminent preemptive airstrike on North Korea by US warships now located just 300 miles away from the North Korean nuclear test site, moments ago China's national airline, Air China, announced it was suspending flights from Beijing to the North Korean capital, Pyongyang, from late on Friday, Chinese state broadcaster CCTV said. It did not say why the flights, which operate on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, were being suspended.

In the report published on its website, CCTV did not cite a source while according to Reuters, Air China could not immediately be reached for comment after business hours. The last flight between the two cities took place on Friday, with the return flight to Beijing arriving in the early evening, the broadcaster said. Air China began regular flights between the two countries in 2008 but the flights were frequently cancelled because of unspecified problems, the broadcaster said. China is North Korea's sole major ally but it disapproves of the North's weapons programs, and its confrontations with the United States and its Asian allies, and it has supported U.N. sanctions against it.

Following repeated missile tests that drew international criticism, China banned all imports of North Korean coal on Feb. 26, cutting off the country's most important export product. North Korea's army vowed a 'merciless' response to any US provocation, the official news agency reported Friday, as tensions soar over Pyongyang's rogue nuclear program.

Back in 2013 Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s days were numbered as the Gas for Gold scandal broke, ensnaring 16 of Erdogan’s allies. By July 2016 Erdogan was running from a coup that threatened to end his Presidency. But Erdogan gained the upper hand, blaming the coup attempt on former ally and U.S. charter School scourge Fethullah Gulen. Bloody revenge was loosed as over 300 Coup conspirators were killed. And a crackdown on the free press criticizing Erdogan’s authoritarian leanings saw to it that at least 200 journalists were imprisoned and 120 news outlets shutdown.

With 400,000 Turks already living in the Netherlands, Erdogan’s government sent representatives there to campaign in favor of giving the Turk president dictatorial powers. When the Dutch government sent the campaigners home, violence erupted and Erdogan, without any sense of irony, accused the Dutch of being fascist Nazis. With the EU and even Merkel taking the side of the Netherlands, Turkish rhetoric has become so heated that the Dutch government warned its citizens not to travel to Turkey. But the Netherlands is also having an election — in 2 days — and Geert Wilders has taken the opportunity to again warn the Dutch about Islamic invasion.

In his article regarding the new presidential system which Erdogan wants to establish, Karaman desperately defended Erdogan and declared what we were saying all along they will do; that Erdogan will soon become the Caliph for all Muslims. The following is a presentation of the exciting part in an article Hayrettin Karaman wrote: “During the debate on the presidential system, here is what everyone must do so while taking into account the direction of the world’s national interest and the future of the country and not focus on the party or a particular person. What this [presidential system] looks like is the Islamic caliphate system in terms of its mechanism. In this system the people choose the leader, the Prince, and then all will pledge the Bay’ah [allegiance] and then the chosen president appoints the high government bureaucracy and he cannot interfere in the judiciary where the Committee will audit legislation independent of the president. ” Hayrettin Karaman

Preface by TLB Staff Writer: Christopher Wyatt

Take a look at the following article and how it drips with pro vax arrogance! As a vaccine injured person I have one thing to say to Scott Gottlieb and that is NO WE WILL NOT GET OVER IT! Vaccine injury takes many forms and some of those can be mind and unrecognizable, other times it can be severe! Vaccines have been linked with cancer, diabetes, autoimmune diseases, and brain damage that causes learning disabilities, cognitive dysfunction, and Autism!

Where the hell does this excuse for a man get off telling people to get over it? Scott Gottlieb has NO CLUE what it is like to live with a vaccine injury! He has no clue what it means to be a family dealing with the fallout of such an injury!

All of us need to work to end the vaccine lie and to restore health. A good start is to willfully disobey any law that promotes vaccines and to embrace natural immunity. If we the people stand together against the elite we will be unstoppable!

This does not mean winning the war against vaccines will be easy, it does not mean there will not be sacrifice! What is means is that by standing in unity and not bowing to oppression it will happen! WE THE PEOPLE! THIS IS HOW CHANGE WILL HAPPEN! (CW)


FDA Nominee Scott Gottlieb To Anti-Vaccine Crowd: Get Over It

By Alex Lash / Ben Fidler
In what passes for a short hearing these days in Washington, DC, the Trump White House’s pick to run the Food and Drug Administration, Scott Gottlieb, spent less than three hours fielding questions from a Senate committee Wednesday morning.
Amid predictable splits between Republican praise for his past industry experience and Democrat fire over potential conflicts that stem from his private industry investments and consulting work, Gottlieb took very public issue with one of President Donald Trump’s high-profile grievances. Gottlieb was unequivocal that the anti-vaccine movement, newly emboldened by Trump’s vaccine skepticism, was tilting at windmills.
“This has been one of the most exhaustively studied questions in scientific history,” Gottlieb said. “We need to come to the point where we can accept no for an answer and come to the conclusion that there is no causal link between vaccination and autism. We’ve invested, and Congress has invested, enormous resources in studying this question.”
Gottlieb painted himself as unafraid to push back against potential pressure from his bosses. “I have a history of not being shy, about speaking truth to power,” he said, and would make his views known “in the proper venues.”
Gottlieb, 44, who served in the FDA from 2005 to 2007 in the George W. Bush administration, also spoke forcefully about the nation’s opioid abuse crisis. Senators from both sides asked Gottlieb what FDA could do about the situation, which he called a public health emergency “on the level of Ebola and Zika” that requires the “full gamut of public resources.”
Gottlieb was cautious, however, in noting that much of the difficult work lies outside the FDA’s purview. He was similarly cautious describing specific potential FDA action, referring to regulatory “frameworks” and statutes that the agency must follow—or that Congress has to change. “We might have to come back to Congress,” he said, “and have another conversation with all of you about how to make these things happen.”
Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) noted that the price of a life-saving injection of the anti-overdose drug naloxone, which many first responders carry on the job, has jumped dramatically since 2014. Gottlieb responded that FDA regulations could perhaps be tweaked to allow generic competition for high-priced drugs. Speaking more broadly about lack of generic competition, which has helped some products monopolize the market “in perpetuity,” Gottlieb told the Senate committee, “I think this is an area we can make a lot of progress.”
While pleased to hear Gottlieb speak in urgent terms about the opioid crisis—which in large part is responsible for overdoses now killing more Americans than shootings and car crashes combined—Democrats also used the issue to probe Gottlieb’s ties to the healthcare industry and whether he’d cave to political pressure from the Trump administration.
Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) brought up Gottlieb’s past advocacy for a “more holistic approach” to relieving chronic pain—using medical devices, perhaps—and that New Enterprise Associates, the VC firm where Gottlieb has worked for a decade, has invested in a company making devices for chronic pain. “What assurances can you give us that your business and financial relationships won’t bias you?” Baldwin asked.
Gottlieb, who has often used his position at conservative think tank American Enterprise Institute to pen op-eds about FDA matters such as sluggish drug approvals, generic drug rules, and off-label drug promotion, said he would do nothing to “besmirch” the agency. “I get it. I know why people care,” said Gottlieb. “FDA decisions are matters of life and death, and I don’t want to reduce confidence in the agency’s mission.”
Gottlieb has promised to recuse himself for one year from FDA decisions regarding companies linked to him, divest from about 20 companies, and to step down from all boards. Questions about financial ties and improper transactions swirled around Tom Price, the Health and Human Services secretary, who would be Gottlieb’s boss. The Senate confirmed Price in February largely along party lines.
Gottlieb said his industry experience helps him understand how companies try to “game the process”—use regulation to their commercial advantage—and that he would try to design better regulations to prevent egregious practices.
Gottlieb’s nomination has eased some fears in the life sciences world of drastic FDA upheaval because of his agency history and private sector experience. One potential candidate floated earlier by the administration had publicly questioned whether FDA needed to evaluate drugs for efficacy. Trump has declared he wants to cut FDA regulations by at least 75 percent.
The FDA saw plenty of reform in the Obama era, as well, with several new incentives to drug makers and new pathways to speed evaluation of drugs. The 21st Century Cures Act, signed by President Obama late last year, gives the agency even more leeway, which some critics considered an unacceptable loosening of standards.
While Gottlieb spoke often about streamlining regulations in today’s hearing, he did not speak about radical disruption. “I believe in the gold standard for safety and effectiveness,” he said. “That is something that needs to be demonstrated through an empiric regulatory process guided by the science and public health.”
But he acknowledged it will difficult to maintain high standards with fewer staff, which proposed White House budget cuts would impose. “I’m going to be committed to advocating for proper resources for the FDA,” he said. The administration has already imposed a hiring freeze. As experienced staff leave or retire, “replacing that kind of expertise and institutional knowledge is going to be a significant challenge,” Gottlieb said.
One Democrat questioned whether Gottlieb would also push back against political meddling over access to contraception, which FDA regulates. Gottlieb declined to discuss Bush-era FDA decisions about contraception, and said that as a physician, he would be guided by science, public health research, and the advice of the agency’s career staff.
The Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee will vote on Gottlieb after the upcoming Congressional recess, a spokeswoman said.
 12-Year Old Girl Left Paralyzed After Suffering 
an Alleged Reaction to HPV Vaccine 
"I’m Gini Blesky and this is my daughter Mia who’s 12. On the 21st of September last year, 2016, she had the first HPV vaccination at school. The following morning she woke up and she couldn’t walk. Her legs were shaky and she had burning in either side of her spine all the way up her back. We took her to the doctor. They said to take her home and give her some […] and a bath, she’ll be fine. But she deteriorated by the afternoon, so we re-called the oncall doctor who said just go straight to the A and E (ambulatory and emergency). We took her straight to A and E and they admitted her for a few days. We’ve done video directly right from the first day all the way through up until now, and basically within days, about 10 days, of Mia having the vaccination she completely lost the use of her legs. A couple of weeks after, she lost the use of her body… her body went floppy."

 WASHINGTON — President Trump has signed into law a 
bill that overturns a rule issued by the Obama administration that bans 
states from defunding the abortion and contraception giant Planned 
“On Thursday, April 13, 2017, the president signed into law H.J. Res. 43, which nullifies the Department of Health and Human Services rule prohibiting recipients of Title X grants for the provision of family planning services from excluding a subgrantee from participating for reasons other than its ability to provide Title X services,” the White House simply write in a brief press release on Thursday.
As previously reported, the resolution passed the Senate on March 30 after Vice President Mike Pence was called in to cast the deciding vote in the midst of a 50-50 tie. It cleared the House on Feb. 16 230-188, mostly along party lines.
“Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, that Congress disapproves the rule submitted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services relating to compliance with Title X requirements by project recipients in selecting subrecipients (81 Fed. Reg. 91852; December 19, 2016), and such rule shall have no force or effect,” H.J. Res. 43 simply reads.

Title X was enacted in 1970 under the Public Health Service Act and authorizes the Office of Population Affairs to oversee the disbursement of federal funds for the purpose of assisting organizations that offer “family planning” services. States distribute the capital to reproductive and women’s health organizations as they see fit.
In recent years, a number of states have sought to defund the abortion giant Planned Parenthood after granting the organization funds for years, remarking that they do not wish to assist groups that provide abortion services, even if the funds will not be directly used for abortion.
But the Obama administration contended last year that stripping abortion facilities of funding results in undesired births. It also asserted that such locations are important because they provide contraceptives.

“Reducing access to Title X services has many adverse effects. Title X services have a dramatic effect on the number of unintended pregnancies and births in the United States,” HHS said in September. “For example, services provided by Title X-funded sites helped prevent an estimated 1 million unintended pregnancies in 2010 which would have resulted in an estimated 501,000 unplanned births.”
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) consequently drafted a rule—which it finalized in December—that amends the Code of Federal Regulations to read, “No recipient making subawards for the provision of services as part of its Title X project may prohibit an entity from participating for reasons unrelated to its ability to provide services effectively.”
But some lawmakers sought to overturn the rule, which they opined was crafted with bias and incorrect information.
“This edict was replete with statements that the Administration cannot back up,” sponsor Sen. Diane Black, R-Tenn., said. “For example, the rule stated that health care providers with a focus on reproductive health—for example Planned Parenthood—can ‘accomplish Title X programmatic objectives more effectively.’ This is demonstrably false.”
“According to Planned Parenthood’s most recent annual report, Planned Parenthood’s contraceptive services dropped by 18% over the last year,” she noted. “And their total number of services provided dropped by 11% even as their taxpayer funding increased by millions and their abortions continued at over 320,000 a year.”
As previously reported, according to the organization’s annual report, Planned Parenthood performed 323,999 abortions nationwide during the 2014-2015 fiscal year. The figure accounts for at least one-third of all abortions nationwide, when compared to statistics released in November by the Centers for Disease Control.
As it has been in previous years, Planned Parenthood’s largest focus in 2014-2015 was sexually transmitted diseases (STD’s), as it tested and/or treated over four million people for sexual ailments, with over 3.5 million tests and 32 thousand men and women being treated for ailments contracted through sexual activity.
Over 2.9 million people were provided with contraceptives or other forms of birth control in 2014—from temporary to permanent, including over 900 thousand emergency contraception kits. The figure is down from 3.5 million the year before, and 3.7 million in 2012.
Planned Parenthood does not provide mammograms as it is not licensed to operate mammogram machines, and its annual report outlined that fewer than 700,000 women received services surrounding cervical cancer screenings (pap smears for women who have been sexually active), equating to just seven percent of its services, while STD testing and contraceptives accounted for 76 percent of its services, as opposed to women’s health.
Following word that Trump had signed the resolution nullifying the Obama administration’s order, Planned Parenthood blasted the move, asserting that the government was inflicting injury on women by allowing states to reallocate funds to community health centers instead.
“People are sick and tired of politicians making it even harder for them to access health care, and this bill is just the latest example,” said Dawn Laguens, executive vice president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America. “Too many women still face barriers to health care, especially young women, women of color, those who live in rural areas, and women with low incomes.”
But Seema Verma, director of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, told reporters following the signing that “President Trump is delivering on his promise to give states the flexibility that they need to make healthcare decisions that best meet their citizens’ unique needs.”
