Cancer Cure? Maybe ....

If you have read my blog before, you know that I love conspiracies.  One of the few conspiracies I do not believe in is a hidden cure for cancer.  Too many rich and powerful people have gotten cancer and died.  Too many ambitious doctors want to find the cure for riches, fame, and ego.  With that being said, I do believe that there are doctors and Big Pharma companies who are milking the cash cow for all that it's worth.  No one can argue that it's in Big Pharma's interest to keep the cancer gravy train of treatments, drugs, and doctors' visits running.  The cancer business rakes in more than one hundred billion dollars a year and continues to grow at exorbitant margins.  

Israel's Accelerated Evolution Biotechnologies might have figured something out that is cheaper without side effects.  They discovered MuTaTo (multi-target-toxin).  This new product will cure cancer within a year's time.   It essentially works like an anti-biotic.  DNA coding for a protein is put into a bacteriophage or a virus that infects bacteria.  Researchers and doctors can screen this.  They somehow come up with peptides that can fight the cancer cells.  Patients are given at least three of these peptides for treatment.  
What makes this treatment different than radiation, chemo, and other drugs?  They attack a specific target in or on the cancer cell.  Mutations occur that make the targets no longer important to the cell.  It only attacks a receptor one at a time.  
MuTaTo uses a combination of peptides for each cancer cell.  The treatment is not affected by mutations.  This method attacks receptors three at a time which is too fast for the cancer to spread.  AIDs patients use similar treatment.  However, AIDs patients take medication their whole lives.  Cancer patients only take MuTaTo for a few weeks.
Sounds too good to be true?  I certainly hope not, but will continue to be suspicious!  Big Pharma companies are claiming to be on to new things as well.  This new treatment claims to be cheaper than what doctors are currently doing.  We'll see.  If there is a way to jack up the price....
Love to hear from you!  Leave a comment.  This will definitely go into my next Big Pharma book.  Shameless plug below.

Frank Fontaine Stops By: NY Abortion Rant and Predictions

Frank Fontaine
January 22, 2019, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed New York's Reproductive Health Act.  This new law would allow professionals who are not doctors to perform abortions.  Pregnant women can also abort their babies at the latest point of the pregnancy.  As a man, this whole abortion thing is way above my pay grade, but I feel obligated to blog about this because so much more than the lame-stream media is reporting will happen.
First of all, most abortions are not performed because of threats to mothers' lives.  But that seems to be the compelling argument that both the right and left have mentioned.  Let's get real here.  I am writing about this because no one else is.

Nine month abortion is murder to me, if not most of the world, and of course the Catholic church.  What does the Pope think of this new law?  We don't know.  He is kind of busy ripping on Trump and the wall.  However, "some" (not all) Catholic leaders are angry.  Bishop Scharfenberger of Albany, New York told Fox News that this new law is torture.  We, as a nation, wouldn't even perform this on a cat or dog.  I agree!
But the real reason why I am blogging on Dina Rae's blog is this: What motive can a woman possibly have to abort her baby at nine months pregnant?  Why wait so long?  Why wouldn't she do it during the first three months?  Or even before the first twenty-four weeks?  I think we all know why and are too afraid to ask.  Money, money, money$$$$$  Money for what?  Body parts.  Newborns have great stem cells and untarnished organs, perfect for harvesting in genetic laboratories.  This new law is really a way to legalize a new kind of business-genetics, all of it-editing, deleting, studying, cloning, harvesting, designing, you name it!  This will become a new kind of Doctor Moreau's Island.  I hope Dina writes a new book about it.

Before you dismiss me as a whack job, let me expand on my prediction.  A year or two ago, Bill O'Reilly did a story on Planned Parenthood doctors who bragged about selling off aborted baby parts.  Here's a link to Snopes in you don't believe me:
Bill was of course fired from Fox for sexual harassment shortly afterwards, but he claims he was fired for political reasons.  Maybe his contribution to the Planned Parenthood expose was one of them.
But conspiracy aside, one thing is clear.  Abortion is big, big money, almost a one billion dollar a year industry (link:  Late-term abortions cost over $3000 a piece, compared to $400 a piece during the first trimester.  Love to hear what you have to say!  Please leave a comment!

History Channel's Project Bluebook: Review

Project Bluebook, starring Aiden Gillen (Game of Thrones), is about a top secret investigation of Doctor Hynek and the Air Force.  Their goal is to find out if unidentified flying saucers are real.  The first show of the series begins with the doctor's involvement of the investigation.  The Air Force originally asks him to scientifically explain the sightings reported by pilots.  He is told to say the pilots saw weather balloons or enemy weapons in the sky.  Doctor Hynek is not willing to be the Air Force's "yes" man.  He believes the pilots are seeing UFOs.  According to the script, it is Hynek who coined the phrase UFO.  The doctor gets a pilot to take him up in the air and watch a weather balloon.  The two men crash.  

My Review: I love conspiracy theories so I am immediately hooked on this new series.  Can't wait to watch it tonight as it airs every Tuesday on the History Channel.  The website for the show is really cool.  Project Blue Book Full Episodes, Video & More | HISTORY  There are a variety of tabs that go with the real story of Project Bluebook, Men in Black, the Flatwoods Monster, and alien sightings.  The real Project Bluebook "concluded" that there was no evidence about the legitimacy of UFOs.  Do you believe?

Movie Review: Mary Queen of Scots

The historical drama, starring Margot Robie and Saorise Ronan, is about the life of Mary, Elizabeth's cousin and rival, during the 1500's.  The movie looks authentic.  It flips between Scotland and England, showing the fear both women have for the other.  As a Stuart, Mary has a legit claim for Elizabeth's crown as well.  England breaks away from the Catholic church and many Catholics are bitter.  She has a chance to hold both thrones, but in the end, blows it by surrounding herself with a disloyal court, disloyal half-brother, and drunkard fool for a husband.  Her son James rules both Scotland and England because Elizabeth had no children.  The ending is an unhappy one for Mary.  She is imprisoned for twenty-five years and then beheaded.

My Review: The acting is great, as are the costumes, setting, and script.  Great film!  Anyone who like Elizabeth with Cate Blanchett and the TV show The Tudors will really like this film.  My movie friends just saw The Favorite which is historically linked with this film.  4.5/5 stars.

Review: Killing the SS by Bill O'Reilly

Bill O'Reilly's newest nonfiction Killing the SS is about all of the Nazis who got away post World War II. South America, especially Argentina, was very friendly towards them.  In some cases, so was the United States.  The book begins with the kidnapping of Eichmann and then ends with a female guard at Ravenbruck.  By the way, the female guard received social security checks from the United States after she was expedited back to Germany!  
My Review:
There were so many things I loved about the book.  I don't want to spoil anything, but Simon Weisenthal was a credit snatcher and a liar.  Mengele died years before all of his supposed sightings.  Bormann more than likely got away.  And Klaus Barbie ended up working for the Mossad.

O'Reilly acknowledged Hitler's possible escape, and I hope he writes a book called Killing Hitler soon!  
O'Reilly's and Dugard's Killing series are always great, but this is one of my favorites.  Killing Jesus is still the best one.  This is another five star no-brainer!  I enjoy the way these two writers turn history into a brilliant novel, only everything is true.  Their research is second-to-none.

After a breathtaking journey through Iceland, Vanessa Evanston finishes her dream vacation with her two best friends in the capital city of Reykjavik—and wakes up the next morning on the ground, on a tiny island 250 kilometers north, with no memory of how she got there.

Luckily, handsome and kind-hearted local Gunnar Heimirsson stumbles upon her—unluckily, he can’t explain her mysterious journey either. Nor can anyone explain why Vanessa soon discovers “last night” actually happened a year ago, and everyone thinks she’s dead.

Iceland is known for its folklore, but beyond the elves and mountain trolls, there are other creatures: beautiful, powerful, and vengeful, known as the hulduf√≥lk. Gunnar has been alive for a century, trapped by their curse after angering them. From the far flung Westfjords to the black sands of Reynisfjara, the answer to Vanessa’s missing year might be connected to Gunnar’s punishment—as well as his long-lost wife, Hera—but the truth lies somewhere in the realm of magic, myth, and love, and Vanessa has only just discovered fairy tales are real.

Book Review: Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt

I recently went on a trip to Savannah with one of my best friends, Peg.  She and I fell in love with the gorgeous city, nearby beach at Tybee Island, and centuries of history.  One of the most popular items sold in gift shops was the novel Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.  Peg read the book and raved, so I bought it.

The book is written like a novel, but is actually a work of nonfiction.  There are several stories about the who's who in Savannah, but Jim Williams is the primary focus.  For those of you who have never heard of him, myself included, he was a wealthy antiques dealer who lived in the Mercer House.  He was part of Savannah's high society.  Somewhere around the '80s he lost control and killed Danny Hansford, his employee and lover.  He claimed self-defense.  It took four trials before Jim Williams was acquitted, and that was only because he was rich.  Anyone else would have gotten life or the death penalty.  Williams believed in voodoo and hired a priestess, Minerva, to help him with the jury.  Minerva warned him that there was still unfinished business with Danny, and she was right.  Jim Williams died of a heart attack at fifty-nine years old, only one month after his acquittal.
My Review: Berendt brilliantly paints a picture of two kinds of people from Savannah-the haves and the have nots.  Both groups collide throughout the book showing a world in which hypocrisy reigns and social standing is everything.  
His sarcasm and biting wit made me laugh at times.  I loved all of the places within Savannah he described, and wished I read the book before the trip and not after.  The book ends at Bonaventure Cemetery, which was ironically Peg's and my last stop on our vacation.  Loved the book and loved the city.  5/5 Stars.
