Thursday on The Robert Scott Bell Show:

Special Guest: Jonathan Emord

For the past 37 years, Jonathan W. Emord has litigated against the federal bureaucracy, winning over and over again. Ron Paul calls Jonathan “an expert in constitutional theory and history” and “an expert litigator with a long string of legal victories over the federal bureaucracy.” George Noory calls him “a Knight in Shining Armor” and “a warrior out to save our rights.” Congressmen Dan Burton and John Doolittle describe him as “an intellectual warrior for the rights and freedoms of people in America.” Jonathan has a unique, detailed knowledge of the federal bureaucracy, the deep state. He knows how to defeat it. Jonathan graduated from the University of Illinois (BA, political science and history, 1982) and DePaul University College of Law (JD, 1985). He served as an attorney in the Federal Communications Commission during the Reagan administration. A leading constitutional law and litigation expert, he is the author of five critically acclaimed books. He has won more cases against the Food and Drug Administration in federal court than any other attorney in American history, earning him the nickname “FDA Dragon Slayer.” He is a columnist for Townhall.com, PJ Media.com, Americangreatness.com, and the U.S.A. Today Magazine. He frequently appears on national radio and television programs. He is married to Sheryl Emord, and they have two children, twins Justice and Angelica. They reside in Clifton, Virginia.

Is the Swamp Drainable?: This article explores the monumental challenges involved in “draining the swamp” of entrenched interests in various sectors of society, from government to big corporations. It argues thatsuch an endeavor would require not just minor reforms but a complete overhaul of systems and structures deeply embedded within society. The piece is skeptical of the feasibility of such massive changes, suggesting that even with political will, the complexity and interconnectedness of the “swamp” make it almost impossible to eradicate.

Senate kills Mayorkas impeachment trial, votes both articles ‘unconstitutional’: The Senate dismissed impeachment articles against Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, with a vote deeming them unconstitutional. The dismissal followed short proceedings, criticized by Republicans as lacking proper evidence and procedure. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer defended the dismissal, framing it as a necessary response to politically motivated charges that did not meet the high standards for impeachment.

Republicans predict Dems to pay ‘heavy price’ in election after Mayorkas impeachment bid fails: Following the failed impeachment trial of DHS SecretaryAlejandro Mayorkas, Republicans have warned that Democrats will face electoral repercussions for their decision. The GOP argues that Democrats’ handling of the trial and their dismissal of the charges as unconstitutional will not sit well with voters, particularly concerning border security and immigration policy. This event underscores the deep partisan divisions and the potential impact of such high-stakes political maneuvers on upcoming elections.

Supercharged Spying Provision Buried In “Terrifying” FISA 702 Reauthorization: A significant expansion of government surveillance powers is included in the recent reauthorization of Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), as highlighted by Senator Ron Wyden. This amendment drastically broadens the scope of entities that could be compelled to assist NSA surveillance, extending beyond traditional service providers to virtually any business with electronic communications equipment. This sweeping change could transform a vast array of U.S. businesses and even individuals into potential data collection points for the NSA, raising serious privacy concerns and potential for abuse.

Weedkiller manufacturer seeks lawmakers’ help to squelch claims it failed to warn about cancer: Bayer, the chemical giant behind the weedkiller Roundup,is lobbying for legislative changes in Iowa, Missouri, and Idaho that would shield it from cancer-related lawsuits. These proposed laws would prevent claims against pesticide manufacturers if their products’ labeling complies with EPA regulations. This legal shield comes as Bayer faces numerous lawsuits claiming that Roundup causes non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, despite the company’s settlements totaling approximately $10 billion. Critics argue that such legislation could undermine consumer safety and transparency.

Western powers urge Israel to show restraint in retaliation against Iran attack: In the wake of a significant missile and drone attack by Iran, Western countries, including Germany and the United Kingdom, are urging Israel to exercise restraint to avoid escalating the conflict further. The attacks were reportedly in response to an Israeli strike in Syria that killed Iranian personnel. Despite international calls for calm, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has affirmed that Israel will defend itself as necessary, reflecting the tense and precarious nature of regional dynamics and the challenges of balancing diplomatic pressures with national security imperatives.

Hour 2

States, consumer groups target food additives, while NCA defends safety: Several U.S. states, led by California and supported by consumer advocacy groups like Consumer Reports and the EnvironmentalWorking Group, are moving to ban specific food additives linked to health risks. This legislative push targets color additives and other chemicals, with bans set to be implemented in school foods and broader consumer products. The National Confectioners Association (NCA) argues that these state-level actions overlook scientific expertise and federal regulatory standards, potentially leading to higher food costs and reduced consumer confidence in the safety of the U.S. food supply.

Renaissance of “food as medicine” in modern clinical trials: The concept of using food as medicine is gaining traction in clinical research, reflecting a shift towards integrating dietary interventions in the treatment and prevention of diseases. Recent studies, such as the PREDIMED and DiRECT trials, have highlighted the significant health benefits of diets like the Mediterranean diet and low-calorie meal replacements, particularly in preventing cardiovascular diseases and inducing remission in type 2 diabetes. These findings underscore the potential for dietary strategies to complement or even replace pharmacological treatments in managing chronic diseases.

The HHS COVID Vaccine Heist: Does It Rise to the Level of Conspiracy?: This article criticizes the financial entanglements between pharmaceutical companies andthe U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), specifically around the COVID-19 vaccines. It questions whether HHS’s actions to protect royalty payments to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) from vaccine sales constitute a conspiracy. The piece suggests that the persistence of the COVID-19 emergency declaration and the extension of vaccine Emergency Use Authorizations could be financially motivated, aimed at continuing the profit flow from vaccine royalties while ignoring potential safety concerns reported through systems like VAERS.

Slaughter-free sausages: trying the latest lab-grown meat creation: Meatable, a company based in the Netherlands, is pioneering the development of lab-grown, slaughter-free sausages made from cultivated pig cells. These sausages, which blend cultivated pork fat with plant-based proteins like pea and soy, aim to provide a sustainable and ethical alternative to traditional meat. Touted as the future of meat production, these sausages are developed in lab settings, using bioreactors for cell cultivation—similar to brewing beer. Meatable plans to introduce these sausages in Singapore and the U.S., pending regulatory approval, with aspirations for a broader market release. The company’s approach highlights the potential to satisfy global meat demand without the environmental and ethical concerns associated with conventional livestock farming.
