These visas are keeping us right off the sick list

Piers Akerman – Thursday, March 07, 2013 (7:09pm)

IT is most telling that Julia Gillard’s mendacious campaign against 457 visa holders has received its greatest public support from isolationist anti-migration figure Pauline Hanson and an undistinguished trade union leader.

Middle-of-the-road politicians get run over

Piers Akerman – Thursday, March 07, 2013 (5:32am)

FORMER Victorian Premier Ted Baillieu deserved to be dumped.
He was the epitome of a leader who – nice guy and all – didn’t lead.
He didn’t grasp the realities of politics and he didn’t make a difference.
Behind his back, the wealthy Victorian was called “Marmalade” – that is to say he was thought of as “thick and rich”.
Having the Baillieu name didn’t help. The family has long been regarded as one the nation’s most successful clans producing generations of business leaders – but not politicians.
In politics, difference counts. Personality helps but it is the ability to articulate a goal and deliver to the public that matters.
There is no comparison between Baillieu’s resignation and former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd’s assassination.
Rudd’s colleagues queued to disparage their former leader – few Liberals would bear Baillieu the same animosity and fewer would share the absolute loathing that Labor MPs had and still hold for Rudd.
Baillieu tried to straddle the breadth of political opinion but as so often happens, those in the middle of the road get run over.
Baillieu’s legacy is lacklustre.
His was a do nothing government.
If there is a lesson in this episode it is that Opposition leader Tony Abbott is on the right path, as is Queensland LNP Premier Campbell Newman and WA Premier Colin Barrett.
They are all men who unquestionably stand for something.
NSW Premier Barry O’Farrell might learn something if he thinks hard enough about the fate of his former Victorian colleague.
Though the NSW Labor Party is in no position to mount a strong challenge to his premiership, the people of NSW to wonder why he doesn’t tackle some of the tough ideological hurdles that Labor left.
Education is a case in point.
While the schools in NSW and around the nation remain locked in the hands of Left-wing teachers who preach dogma rather than the three Rs, populist Leftist opinion will continue to spread through the population.
It may be nice to be liked, but it is not necessary for a successful leader.

A coffee-led recovery

Miranda Devine – Thursday, March 07, 2013 (7:59am)

image
IT’S galling enough that a Climate Change Authority exists in the first place, chewing up $1.6 billion as part of a vast green bureaucracy. But can’t they pay for their own cappuccinos?
We have learned through Senate Estimates Committees that the Department of Climate Change spent $45,500 on 13 new coffee machines this year, not to mention $1.7million on travel, including business class flights and Qantas Club memberships.
The Clean Energy Regulator spent $20,000 on eight new Nespresso Gemini CS200 Pro machines, which looks frugal compared to the Department of Industry’s $75,000 on five Melitta Bar II machines.
I don’t know about your office, but at the Daily Telegraph we have tins of Nescafe and teabags, and we have to bring our own cups.
Not to complain, but any journalist who deals with the taxpayer-funded ABC can also tell you how much more luxurious working conditions are compared to private enterprise. Cab charges flow like water, studios are decked out, hair and makeup is top notch
(while non-existent at Sky), and Green Room hospitality is lavish. There is no evidence of the belt tightening happening in commercial media.
The fact is, if it’s not your money, you don’t care.
So the big challenge for the next federal government will be to cut spending, which has blown out since Kevin Rudd came to office by 35 percent a year. Bloated bureaucracies soak up taxpayer dollars, just to create green and red tape, which stifles free enterprise.
In the economic debris of Europe we can see the consequences for Australia of continuing along the path of big government growth.
“We cannot allow a similar crisis to happen here,” says Greg Lindsay the executive director of the Centre for Independent Studies think tank.
To that end, the CIS has set its finest minds on policies aimed at reducing the size of government in Australia from approximately 35% of GDP to 30% or less over the next 10 years.
The TARGET 30 project is not an “austerity “ campaign, but a sensible end to wasteful government spending.
Buying your own cappuccinos is a good start.

Prime Minister Shorten?

Miranda Devine – Thursday, March 07, 2013 (5:20am)

According to Ken Phillips in The Australian, Bill Shorten is angling to take over as Prime Minister.
And the mess the Victorian Liberals have created with the shock resignation of Premier Ted Baillieu is ripe for exploitation by an invigorated federal ALP.
If the report pans out, it would pit Jesuit-trained Xavier boy Shorten against Jesuit-trained Riverview boy Tony Abbott.
“The leadership change to Shorten will happen because he is the only person who can limit Labor’s losses at this election,” writes Phillips.
“Labor cannot go to the election with Gillard. She’s a political dead person walking.
Kevin Rudd is not an option. He’d split the party. His current polling popularity would not overcome sabotage of him from within Labor and a devastating campaign against him by the Coalition. A Rudd election outcome could be similar to a Gillard outcome.
Shorten is the only option. He’s the cleanskin. The broken promises on the carbon tax, gambling reform, Sydney’s western suburbs transport upgrade, budget surplus and more belong to Gillard, not Shorten. Likewise, the Slipper affair, the Thomson-HSU scandal and AWU trust fund rorts belong to Gillard not Shorten. Under Shorten these would be swept aside as history not relevant to a future under a Shorten-led Labor.
Gillard is of the Left of Labor. At some stage, perhaps soon, her factional, ideological partners will tell her to resign for Shorten. She’ll do this with grace. Rudd will be neutered. Labor will unite. Labor’s polling popularity will soar.”

Fordham grills Gillard on AWU scandal

Andrew BoltMARCH072013(8:03pm)

image
Here’s the most important exchange in Ben Fordham’s impressive questioning on 2GB today of Prime Minister Julia Gillard. (Audio here.) It deals with a power of attorney Gillard allegedly witnessed (see it here) to the advantage of her then client and boyfriend, conman Bruce Wilson, for whom she’d helped to create a slush fund:
BEN FORDHAM:
You… can see that money from the slush fund may have been used to buy a house in Melbourne. Now you attended the auction with your then boyfriend Bruce Wilson, but the property was purchased in the name of Ralph Blewitt even though he’d never seen the house. Now in order for this to be done legally, a power of attorney would need to be signed allowing ... Bruce to buy the property on Ralph’s behalf.... So, when this property was purchased on Ralph’s behalf, the law states that you would have to be present when Ralph Blewitt signed the documents. Ralph Blewitt claims that you were not present. He claims that Bruce Wilson flew to Perth to get him to sign the documents and that you signed it at a different time in a different place. Now you did not fly to Perth to witness those documents, did you?
JULIA GILLARD:
And I’ve consistently dealt with this too. I properly witness documents as a lawyer. So you can believe Mr Blewitt or you can believe me Ben. I’m not overly fussed what you conclude, but I witnessed documents properly as a lawyer.
BEN FORDHAM:
Ok, if you’ve always obeyed the law in carrying out your duties, you’d be able to make a statement to police confirming that you’ve never witnessed one of these documents without the relevant person being present.
JULIA GILLARD:
Ben, excuse me, that is incredibly offensive and I’m not going to let it go past. I have done nothing wrong in this matter. I have said that for 20 years. I will continue to say that, because it is the truth. Anybody who wants to know anything about this matter from my perspective has already got the benefits of it being canvassed publicly and in Parliament over the best part of 20 years. I’ve given full details and I never did anything wrong and please don’t use forms of words that imply the contrary.
BEN FORDHAM:
Prime Minister, you and Ralph Blewitt were there together and signed the documents together – that’s what you’re saying just to confirm?
JULIA GILLARD:
I’ve witnessed documents properly as a lawyer.
BEN FORDHAM:
Yeah, you and Ralph Blewitt were in the room together, you signed them together yes?
JULIA GILLARD:
Look Ben, these documents were of – as a lawyer I witness thousands of documents, so as a lawyer for eight years I witnessed thousands of them. I don’t remember each document, but I witnessed documents properly.
BEN FORDHAM:
And if you always witnessed them properly, then you and Ralph Blewitt were in the room together and signed at the same time.
JULIA GILLARD:
Well absolutely. I witness documents properly.
BEN FORDHAM:
And this one?
JULIA GILLARD:
What’s your point? I witness documents properly.
BEN FORDHAM:
Ok, it just sounds like one of those things Prime Minister where I’m asking about a specific moment whether or not…
JULIA GILLARD:
And over eight years, I can’t sit here on the phone with you and go through every document over eight years as a lawyer.
BEN FORDHAM:
Sure, but it would stand out though.
JULIA GILLARD:
…that this document was of no particular significance at the time that my practice as a lawyer was to witness documents properly.
BEN FORDHAM:
Yeah, it was of significance, because it was the only time that you were witnessing a document that involved the purchase of a property that your then boyfriend was involved in. That’s why it would stand out.
JULIA GILLARD:
But it’s like asking you, can you give me the opening words of an interview you did three years ago. The matter had no particular significance at the time. It has the significance now because of how politically used it’s been. It wasn’t significant then.
BEN FORDHAM:
Ok Prime Minister, my apologies if I’ve upset you on any of those details, but I do appreciate you coming on.
JULIA GILLARD:
Ben, it’s not a question of you upsetting me and I’m not going to have you create the impression with people that I’m somehow upset. I’m just being clear with you and firm with you, because I do not believe it’s appropriate for you to mislead people on this matter.
Note the bit on bold. The audio of it picks up a hesitation that makes the answer more ambiguous that the transcript suggests. Is Gillard really for the first time insisting she was in the room with Blewitt to witness his document, as required by law? Or is she saying, absolutely she witness documents properly - a more general assertion?

Please, please, please. Can we just have the truth?

Andrew BoltMARCH072013(9:01am)

Julia Gillard’s campaign to tackle criminal gangs is wobbling, with three state governments unhappy about her idea of national laws and a crime statistician saying she has exaggerated the gun problem in NSW…
On Sunday, she announced a $64 million ‘’national anti-gang taskforce’’. Ms Gillard said: ‘’When we look at the NSW Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research, we see that over the past 15 years, shootings in public places have soared.’
‘But the director of the bureau, Don Weatherburn, said Ms Gillard was wrong to claim that shootings had ‘’soared’’. According to Dr Weatherburn, the number of non-fatal shooting offences in NSW peaked in 2001 and then began to fall.

Gillard goes to Rooty Hill to meet her BYO friends

Andrew BoltMARCH072013(8:35am)

Paul Murray films Julia Gillard whizzing past the locals at the Rooty Hill RSL - the very people who wants to woo but is too afraid to meet.
Instead she hid in a private dining room with “mummy bloggers”, largely Left-leaning bloggers of the media class from Sydney’s east.
They included blogger edenland, who would have given Gillard a reassuring feeling she was talking to people just like herself:

Edenland even endorses the one 457 worker that Gillard likes, and plays the same games with race cards:

A new start for Victoria’s Liberals, not a fresh one

Andrew BoltMARCH072013(8:24am)

THIS isn’t quite the fresh start the Liberals needed. They’ve had our premier effectively sacked by an MP facing allegations of rorting.
And Ted Baillieu’s resignation leaves the Government without the natural successor, Planning Minister Matthew Guy, taking over.

Fact-checking Flannery’s “Angry Summer” propaganda

Andrew BoltMARCH072013(8:21am)

Sack the Climate Commission now. Boot its chief, Professor Tim Flannery, for flogging yet another disgraceful global warming scare.
That scare is the commission’s new report, dubbing the past three month’s Australia’s “Angry Summer”.
“Angry Summer”? Is that a scientific term?
This thin report, by climate commissioner, Will Steffen, claims “Australia’s Angry Summer shows that climate change is already adversely affecting Australians”.
It does? How could global warming suddenly give us an “Angry Summer” when even the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change admits there’s been no “statistically significant” warming over the past 15 years?
But the commission’s report doesn’t mention that.
Instead it picks out one heat wave in Australia it claimed helped give us “our hottest summer”, with “record breaking heat on 8-10 January”.
But how does one Australian heat wave prove anything about global temperatures?
In fact, our January wasn’t even typical of the world’s weather.
As Professor Ole Humlum, an Oslo University geoscientist, notes, “On average, global air temperatures [for January] were near the 1998-2006 average” and the “Southern Hemisphere was mainly at or below average”.
Australia’s higher temperatures were actually an “exception”. Even “the global oceanic heat content has been rather stable since 2003/2004”.
That isn’t mentioned by the commission either.
Nor was this: the whole of 2012 was actually only Australia’s 39th warmest year since 1910.
The commission just skips on. It says the heat then gave way to floods in eastern Australia, completing our “Angry Summer”.
“The heavy rainfall was the result of former tropical cyclone Oswald,” it observes. 
But not even the IPCC now believes such cyclones have been changed in intensity or frequency by global warming.
“Current datasets indicate no significant observed trends in global tropical cyclone frequency,” its latest draft report says. 
But here’s the commission’s worst omission.
It claims our rains were made heavier by global warming: “Observations by scientists worldwide affirm the basic physics demonstrating that heavy rainfall becomes more likely as the climate warms.”
But it doesn’t admit that just six years ago Flannery warned us to expect the very opposite – an almost “permanent” drought.
“Over the past 50 years southern Australia has lost about 20 per cent of its rainfall, and one cause is almost certainly global warming,” he claimed in 2007.
“Even the rain that falls isn’t actually going to fill our dams and our river systems.”
Summer wasn’t angry at all. But you should be.

Gillard lets in boat people, demonises plane people

Andrew BoltMARCH072013(8:18am)

image
THE Government which last year let in 17,000 boat people, now says our border laws are “out of control”.
And Prime Minister Julia Gillard says she has a plan “to stop foreign workers being put at the front of the queue with Australian workers at the back”.
But wait.
Ms Gillard wasn’t referring this week to boat people who come here without passports or permission, and who tend to be on Centrelink benefits even after five years.
No, she was attacking skilled workers who come invited to Australia on temporary 457 visas to work on jobs locals can’t or won’t fill.
This is mad. Ms Gillard has embarked on a xenophobic fear campaign against exactly the foreign workers who pay their own way, earning an average of $90,000 a year.
She’s attacking workers like her own media director, John McTernan, brought from Britain on a 457 visa.
Yes, some may well criticise the Opposition for recent talk of wanting “behaviour protocols” for asylum seekers on bridging visas, a proposal that seems to exploit resentments.
But Ms Gillard is not just dividing but attacking a source of our growth.
She has chosen as her target for xenophobia not unemployed people who have sailed here uninvited at a cost to us of some $5 billion in just five years.
She has damned as job-stealers people her Government has accepted as workers doing needed jobs that can’t be filled by locals.
These are people who help this economy tick over and who after four years must leave. Engineers, surgeons, IT professionals, managers and miners.
Almost nothing this PM has said about these “foreigners” is true.

SBS confronts Gillard on dog whistling

Andrew BoltMARCH072013(8:13am)

Labor must realise it’s tripped a wire when even the SBS is asking a Labor Prime Minister if they are dog whistling to xenophobes, with even Pauline Hanson cheering.
It gets worse when Gillard is asked - on the SBS! - if she’s being a union puppet and a hypocrite for banging on about foreign workers while employing one as her own media director.
If you’re Labor and have lost the SBS, you really are running out of friends.

Not the only foreigner in the Gillard Government

Andrew BoltMARCH072013(8:07am)

SBS News, May 26, 2012: 
LABOR senator Doug Cameron says he’s gobsmacked by the Labor government’s announcement that hundreds of foreign workers will be brought in for a WA mining project . . . “We’ve got workers being marched off the job in Kurri Kurri, marched off the job by Qantas in Melbourne and Chinese workers marching in Western Australia,” Senator Cameron told reporters.
Steve Lewis on news.com.au, January 20:
DOUG Cameron has backed calls for a “hard-headed assessment” of the immigration scheme.
Judith Sloan, The Australian, yesterday:
THERE is a certain irony to a man with a very thick Scottish accent banging on about the evils of 457 visas, the arrangement that allows workers to come to Australia on a temporary basis.

A great scheme in 2011 becomes Gillard’s scandal in 2013

Andrew BoltMARCH072013(7:11am)

Immigration Minister Chris Bowen in 2011 announces changes to the 457 visas for foreign workers: 
This new scheme recognises that many Australian businesses have a long history of dealing with the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) and an excellent record of compliance with workplace and migration laws
Prime Minister Julia Gillard in 2013 on the 457 visas for foreign workers:
We inherited from the previous government a 457 temporary foreign worker visa program that was totally out of control, and every step of the way we have been putting in place new conditions to crack down on the rorts.
I understand there can be legitimate skill shortages where businesses need to source labour from overseas, but I also understand there are too many times when people have the skills to get the job and they don’t get the job.
I guess the 457 scheme must have gone to the dogs under Bowen.
Unless, of course, Gillard is just making things up:
UPDATE
Damage is being done by attracting productive and invited workers from overseas as job-stealers: 
Two of the nation’s most experienced diplomats have also warned Labor that the row over 457 temporary migration visas is undermining its Asian Century strategy.
Former Australian ambassador to China Geoff Raby said the dispute sent the wrong message to Asia, while former Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade secretary Richard Woolcott argued it was detrimental to the nation’s wider foreign policy interests.
And guess who bobs up to defend what Gillard is trashing? 
Former prime minister Kevin Rudd used a speech in Adelaide yesterday to praise Australia’s history of successful immigration, saying successive intakes of migrants had strengthened the nation and contributed to the nation’s foreign policy clout in the region.
“We actually have something uniquely precious here,” Mr Rudd said at an interfaith rally in Adelaide’s northern suburbs. “I think one of the great hidden strengths of Australia is our embrace of diversity.”
UPDATE
THIS is a dog-whistling government corrupting policy for short-term political gain.
Labor is seeking to exploit concerns about asylum-seekers in densely populated and under-serviced urban Australia and giving in to union pressure over 457 temporary visas for foreign workers in an act of electoral desperation.
This tactic is wrong on every front: social, policy and political. It has all the hallmarks of a reckless campaign conducted by people who don’t care what they wreck or don’t understand what they are doing.

An Israeli tragedy, an Australian silence

Andrew BoltMARCH072013(6:46am)

Greg Sheridan dismisses conspiracy theories in the Ben Zygier case, following the report released by Foreign Minister Bob Carr into Zygier’s death in an Israel prison: 
Good grief, Zygier was visited by his family 50 times in his short 10-month detention in an Israeli prison. He was visited by his lawyers. He was not physically or psychologically abused.
More than that, he had migrated to Israel, taken out Israeli citizenship, served in the Israeli Defence Force, worked for the Israeli government and married and settled in Israel.
At no stage did he or his family request any consular assistance from Australia…
The idea that Australia retains responsibility for them in criminal cases, especially in a democratic country with an independent judiciary such as Israel, and in circumstances where they do not request assistance, is ridiculous…
Two definitive statements stand out.
Carr said there was no evidence Zygier was in any way involved in the 2010 assassination of a Hamas leader in Dubai, in which Mossad agents used Australian passports.
Recently, Israel’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, said ASIO had had no contact whatsoever with Zygier.
It is extremely unlikely that Carr and Netanyahu would make such statements if they were not true. 
Yet Zygier was held in secrecy in prison for reasons we do not yet know. But for me the silence of his family suggests there is little to be gained in the national interest by demanding answers, much as I’d like them: 
YOSSI MELMAN, JOURNALIST AND SECURITY COMMENTATOR: I think that the Australian Government already knows what were the charges against him. I have a feeling from reading the reports published today in Australia that the Australian Government knows much more than it is ready to reveal to the public.
MICHAEL VINCENT: The report’s timeline shows Ben Zygier was arrested in January 2010. Australian intelligence agency ASIO was told on February 16.
EXCERPT FROM ZYGIER REPORT (voiceover): The agency seeks assurances from Israel about Mr Zygier’s welfare and legal rights.
MICHAEL VINCENT: But ASIO didn’t tell the Department of Foreign Affairs until eight days later, February 24.
EXCERPT FROM ZYGIER REPORT (voiceover): DFAT Secretary Dennis Richardson is briefed for first and only time. DFAT is told that the Prime Minister’s Office and the Attorney-General have been briefed about the case.
MICHAEL VINCENT: But then some time after February 24, the date not recorded:
EXCERPT FROM ZYGIER REPORT (voiceover): DFAT orally advises Foreign Minister’s Chief of Staff. No formal record of oral advice was kept. There was nothing to suggest that the Foreign Minister himself was briefed.
MICHAEL VINCENT: The timing here was critical. February 24, 2010 was the day that the Dubai police chief rang to tell the Government Australian passports were used in the assassination of a Hamas operative in Dubai… That phone call from Dubai prompted Australia’s National Security Committee of Cabinet to meet.
BOB CARR: The advice I’ve got is that nothing in the Zygier file, nothing in the Zygier record has him working in Dubai…
REPORTER: On the same day that the Dubai police chief rings up Australia and says Australian passports were used in an assassination in Dubai and an Australian national is arrested in Israel, that information was never passed on to the relevant ministers?
BOB CARR: No, it wasn’t.

LATEST CANCER INFORMATION
from Johns Hopkins

AFTER YEARS OF TELLING PEOPLE CHEMOTHERAPY IS THE ONLY WAY TO TRY AND ELIMINATE CANCER, JOHNS HOPKINS IS FINALLY STARTING TO TELL YOU THERE IS AN ALTERNATIVE WAY …


1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.

2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person's lifetime.

3. When the person's immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.

4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.

5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.

6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastro-intestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.

7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.

8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.

9. When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.

10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.


11. An effective way to battle cancer is to STARVE the cancer cells by not feeding it with foods it needs to multiple.

What cancer cells feed on:

a. Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells. Note: Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses but only in very small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in colour. Better alternative is Bragg's aminos or sea salt.


b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soy milk, cancer cells will starved.

c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.

d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes t o nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells.

To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).

e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine. Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer-fighting properties. Water--best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.

12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines will become putrified and leads to more toxic buildup.

13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body's killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.

14. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor-ssence, Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the body's own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body's normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.

15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor.

Anger, unforgiving and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.

16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.

Friend,
Caitlin Halligan, nominee to serve on the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, is up for a vote this morning before the full United States Senate.  She is far outside the mainstream when it comes to her positions on critical constitutional issues. 
She is far to the left on our right to bear arms, the right to life and how to deal with terrorist detainees just to name a few.  She has been blocked by the Senate before, but this time it appears she may make it through.  We don't need judges getting life time appointments who will legislate from the bench and use the perch of the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to push a radical liberal agenda, which is exactly what Caitlin Halligan will do. 
Please help stop her confirmation by dialing the Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121, ask to speak to the senators from your state and tell them to vote no on Caitlin Halligan.  It will take you 3 minutes to do this right now -- definitely worth the time if it would mean she won't be confirmed.
Thank you,
