Kamala Harris is not qualified to be President

Copied from November, 2020. If anything happens to President Joe Biden, God forbid, Kamala would be president, although she is clearly not qualified. See the post below and references. Even more worrying is the fact that she has yet to utter a serious thought not already provided by others in the administration. She has yet to accomplish anything of substance unless you count being a member of committees as a Senator or tie breaker votes as President of the Senate. In my opinion, the lights are on, but it appears that no one is home. Has she had too many hits of marajuana or other recreational drugs, or is she just that stupid? That she might actually become president is a really scarey scenario.

Kamala Harris is ineligible to be President because she is not a “natural born Citizen” as required by the Constitution. As such, she is also ineligible to run for Vice President. Here’s why.

Father: Donald J. Harris, a Jamaican American, arrived at the University of California, Berkeley on a colonial (UK) Jamaican government scholarship in the fall of 1961. According to Wikipedia, in the fall of 1962, he spoke at a meeting of the Afro American Association—a students’ group at Berkeley whose members would go on to establish the discipline of Black studies, propose the holiday of Kwanzaa, and help form the Black Panther Party.  He graduated from Berkeley in 1966 with a PhD in Economics. Quoting from Wikipedia: “Harris’s economic philosophy was critical of mainstream economics and questioned orthodox assumptions; he was once described as a ‘Marxist scholar’ and said to be ‘too charismatic, a pied piper leading students astray from neo-Classical economics’”[1] and “He eventually became a naturalized United States citizen.”

Mother: Shyamala Gopalan, from India, a United Kingdom colony, graduated from Berkeley in Jan. of 1964 with a PhD in Nutrition and Endocrinology.

Kamala was born Oct. 20, 1964 in Oakland, California, making her a citizen at birth, although apparently both parents were noncitizens on student visas at the time.

To hold the office of president, you must be a “natural born citizen,” not just a citizen.

Constitution, Article II, Section 1, part 5: “No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President, neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained the Age of 35 Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.”

According to Lawrence B. Solum, Georgetown University Law Center, in a 2007 article Originalism and the Natural Born Citizen Clause[2], “What was the original public meaning of the phrase that establishes the eligibility for the office of President of the United States? There is general agreement on the core of its meaning. Anyone born on American soil whose parents are citizens of the United States is a “natural born citizen.” According to a Harvard Law Review ForumCommentary by Neal Katyal & Paul Clement, On the Meaning of “Natural Born Citizen,”[3] The meaning of “natural born Citizen” in English common law and to the founders at the time of the writing of the Constitution is that both parents must be citizens of the United States, regardless of her birthplace. As a child of citizens of another country, the child is not a “natural born citizen.” In this case, her parents were citizens of the United Kingdom, since both Jamaica and India were at the time colonies of the UK. She is a citizen but not a “natural born citizen.”

Kamala Harris is not eligible to be President of the United States on these grounds because both parents were citizens of other countries on student visas at the time of her birth.

PS. This also applies to Barak Obama, but was ignored, over the protests of the opposition. That is, unless his real father was Frank Marshall Davis, a well-known Communist and friend of the family, and not Barak Obama Senior, a foreign student in need of an extended visa, as claimed.

Incendiary Lies and Uncomfortable truths about animal testing

Leishmaniasis life cycle through sand flies and humans

A recent story, complete with a picture of dogs being subjected to sand fly bites and inflammatory lies by animal rights groups, is being used to disparage Dr. Anthony Fauci as a heartless, politically motivated scientist. There are a lot of reasons to judge Dr. Fauci harshly, but this is not one of them. Let me explain.

Drug development and testing involves multiple steps to ensure safety and efficacy of a proposed drug before it is given to humans to treat disease.  In the case cited in the article from whitecoatwaste.org and echoed by PETA, lies include flies stripping flesh from bones. What is really happening is that anesthetized dogs are being infected with leishmaniasis parasites by bites from infected sand flies in order to test drugs to treat this dreadful tropical disease, which naturally infects dogs, cats, rodents, and humans by millions in tropical-subtropical regions of Africa, Middle East, southern Europe, South and Central America and even the United States.  See Leishmaniasis Facts:  below for more details about this disease. 

The flies are not “stripping the flesh from the bones” as described in the article.  Sand fly bites are like mosquito bites, not like being eaten by carrion or blow fly maggots, which this lie implies.  After being infected with the parasite through several sand fly bites, the dogs will be treated for the disease by an experimental drug to see how effectively it cures them, and to determine any unpleasant or dangerous side effects of the drug. 

Animal testing is a necessary, though disgusting, step in drug development. To ethically carry out this type of procedure, suffering of the animals must be minimized.[1.] That is why the dogs are anesthetized and only their heads are exposed to the sand fly bites. Dogs are the best model for this disease since it naturally infects dogs with a visceral form that can be fatal if untreated. This may be a part of development of veterinary treatment drugs, but it may be used for human drugs as well.

All drugs and cosmetics, as well as many other consumer products, are tested first on cell cultures and then on animals for both safety and effectiveness before graduating to human trials.  Covid vaccines and treatment drugs were tested on animals such as genetically modified mice before human trials, but without outrage because there was no cute pet sentimental propaganda.

Animal testing is a necessary step that, though sensibly abhorrent, must be done.  Eliminating testing of animal models would mean that drugs, cosmetics or other products would be given to humans without knowing if they might be harmful or be effective for the proposed purpose.  Typical animal models used for product development include a variety of vertebrates including dogs, cats, monkeys, Guinea pigs, hamsters, rats and mice. Animal models used to gauge a product’s potential for environmental pollution also include fish, crustaceans like crabs, mollusks like snails, as well as single cell, colony and other microscopic animals.

If a cosmetic or household product advertises that it is not tested on animals, it only means that the ingredients underwent animal tested by others in the past. Re-blending of well-known ingredients may not need more animal testing for each new mixture within reasonable variability.

It is true that animal models are not perfect matches for reactions in humans. Each animal has unique metabolic systems that vary from species to species.  What developers try to do is to match human systems as well as possible for the disease and the mechanism of the drug being developed.  For instance, some products are affected by whether or not an animal can make its own vitamin C. Humans cannot and have that in common with hamsters, which are sometimes used for toxicology and other testing.

Both White Coat Waste and PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) are advocacy groups that are dedicated to ending animal testing of all types.  Ending animal testing would end drug, cosmetic and consumer product development.  As much as I wish we could end animal testing, this is not possible unless we stop all progress, development or improvement of treatments for still orphaned diseases and conditions.

For example, the progress made by St. Jude in childhood leukemia and cancer treatment is remarkable. At one time, fatality was 80 to 90% for most types. Now, for most of these diseases, fatality is only 20%.  This is still too high, but could not have been accomplished without new drug and treatment development.  My daughter died over 40 years ago of a type of leukemia that is among those types that still have high fatality. Much research and development is still needed.

Leishmaniasis Facts:  Leishmania is caused by a protozoan parasite carried and spread by infected sand flies. Sand flies are tiny, about half the size of mosquitos, and are silent.  They are most active dusk to dawn.  Only females need blood for egg and parasite development.  Sand flies become infected by biting and taking a blood meal from infected dogs, cats, rodents or humans, so a few cases have now been acquired in Texas, probably by sand flies that had bitten immigrants from tropical countries.

Symptoms of visceral leishmania in humans, which may not be evident for months or even years, include fever, weight loss, enlarged spleen and liver, abnormal blood tests with low red and white cells and platelets and may cause kidney failure. The cutaneous form affects skin with nodules and ulcers that develop in a few weeks, but may progress to the visceral form even after the sores heal.

Symptoms in dogs include skin nodules, thickening of foot pads, dull and brittle hair and hair loss patches. Visceral symptoms include fever, loss of appetite, weakness, exercise intolerance, severe weight loss, diarrhea, vomiting, bleeding nose, tarry stools, swollen lymph nodes, enlarged spleen, kidney failure.

Treatment:  No one treatment is effective for all cases. It varies with the form and the species/strain of the parasite, and even the geographical location.  CDC offers advice for several possible treatments, but does not ensure success for any one of them.  Some are not available in developing countries, and some are not available in the United States because the FDA had not approved them.  There is a need for development of vaccines and better treatments with a more assured outcome for all strains in all areas.

Full disclosure: Most of my knowledge about drug development protocols was gained while I worked for a pharmaceutical company for five years in the 1990s. I was a supervisor in a chemical control lab that tested FDA approved prescription drugs.  I was not directly involved in research and development or with testing experimental drugs on animals, but both were located at the same company site.  Animal rights protests and violence prompted the company to build a high security fence that included parking lots in order to protect employees.

Why the Leftist Backlash Against Ivermectin

Science Matters

Connor Harris explains in his City Journal article Try a Dose of Skepticism.  Excerpts in italics with my bolds.

Ivermectin may or may not work against Covid-19, but media coverage of the drug has been sneering, inaccurate—and revealing.

“You are not a horse. You are not a cow. Seriously, y’all. Stop it,” read a recent viral tweet warning readers away from using a certain medication to treat Covid-19. The tone of affectedly folksy condescension would be expected from any of thousands of Twitter-addicted progressive journalists, but less so from the official account of the United States Food and Drug Administration. Perhaps even more surprising, the tweet linked to a warning advising readers not to take a drug, ivermectin, that has been used in humans for decades and is a standard Covid-19 treatment in much of the world.

The media’s recent reporting on ivermectin is a fitting sequel to their…

Nebraska AG Frees Doctors and Patients to Use HCQ and IVM

Science Matters


Jim Hoft reports at Gateway Pundit Nebraska AG Issues Opinion on Doctors Prescribing HCQ and Ivermectin for COVID Treatment Will Not Face Punishment. Excerpts in italics with my bolds.

The Office of the Attorney General in Nebraska issued an opinion Friday in response to the request of the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services that states there’s no “clear and convincingevidence that a physician who first obtains informed consent and then utilizes Ivermectin or hydroxychloroquine for COVID-19 violates the UCA (Nebraska’s Uniform Credential Act).”

Nebraska Attorney General Doug Peterson together with his Solicitor General and Assistant Attorney General issued their opinion in response to a request by Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services CEO, Dannette Smith. She wanted the AG’s office to examine carefully whether doctors could face legal action or be subject to discipline if they prescribed the meds for COVID treatment.

Stop Big Pharma Using Little Pharma Against Ivermectin

Science Matters

For decades Big Pharma co-opted physicians to prescribe their products over those from competitors. The biggest winnings came when a new patent drug had no competition. And of course, when the patents run out, the generics take over the supply. With the Covid pandemonia, a new dynamic arose to protect vaccine profits against anti-viral generic drugs, especially HCQ and Ivermectin. Daniel Horowitz explains at Blaze Media Louisiana AG Jeff Landry warns pharmacies against blocking COVID treatment. Excerpts in italics with my bolds.

“Never have pharmacists been allowed to practice medicine and get between a doctor and his patient,”stated Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry in an interview with TheBlaze. “Most certainly not in middle of a pandemic.”
