Press Spin: EPA deceives the public on fluoride risk

Interesting that now the press is citing EPA to support fluoride addition to drinkng water (click here).

“Peter Silva, the Assistant Administrator for the Office of Water for the EPA in press release issued by the agency in May of 2012. “One of water fluoridation’s biggest advantages is that it benefits all residents of a community—at home, work, school, or play. With these changes, we strive to maintain a balance beneficial for all.””

In fact, the Safe Drinking Water Act prohibits USEPA from requiring the addition of fluoride or any other substance to drinking water for medicinal purposes. So why did USEPA make a statement at all? This is not Peter Silva’s nor the agency’s expertise. Silva, a former policy analyst for Metropolitan Water District of So. California, would be expected to toe the party line.

Indeed, addition of fluoride to drinking water does not benefit everyone. In fact some people will likely be harmed, which is air-brushed out of the picture. This statement by USEPA is pure politics. The recommendation to reduce  fluoride is a half-hearted attempt to placate people concerned about too much fluoride exposure while still keeping the government sacred (cash) cow alive.

Time to slay the sacred cow.

Politics: Democrats use hot summer to push global warming hysteria

It was not long ago that we were told repeatedly that “weather is not climate.” So when it is cold, it really is global warming. And now, when the weather is hot out, the Democrat politicians and environmental activists say that its global warming. So it’s catastrophic global warming cause by CO2 if the weather is prolonged cold, or prolonged warm, or variable, or whatever it is.

This is completely foolish thinking.

Inspector General “overwhelmed” by criminal allegations against DHS employees

“There have been 2,527 Department of Homeland Security (DHS) employees and co-conspirators convicted of corruption and other criminal misconduct since 2004, according to a federal auditor.”

“The DHS IG classifies misconduct cases into four categories: 1) corruption involving bribery, disclosure of classified information, espionage and smuggling, among other things. 2) Violations of civil rights and liberties by employees. 3) Defrauding DHS programs and financial systems. 4) Miscellaneous, including those involving child pornography, false statements, and “contact with foreign governments/nationals” among other violations that “may not be criminal in nature.””
