In January 2022, California Governor Gavin Newsom gloated over his financial prowess in a tweet:
That tweet hasn’t aged well, to put it mildly.
On Friday, the exquisitely coiffed governor announced that not only had the surplus evaporated, but the state was actually running at a $32 billion deficit—$10 billion more than he had predicted in January. Oops.
Newsom tried to pretend that it really wasn’t that big of a deal: “We have a $31.5 billion challenge, which is well within the margin of expectation and well within our capacity to address,” he said.
However, few other states are running at a deficit, and at $306 billion California has the largest budget of them all. Some critics argue that the fault lies with the state’s progressive tax code which relies on wealthy taxpayers whose income fluctuates with the performance of the stock market. You could also argue that, like our president, Newsom loves to spend but doesn’t seem to be so good at math.
The Biden administration has unleashed a flurry of regulations this year targeting popular household appliances as part of its climate and conservation agenda and has paved the way for additional actions.
Over the last several months, the Department of Energy (DOE) has unveiled standards to make various appliances, including gas stoves, ovens, clothes washers, refrigerators, air conditioners and dishwashers, more efficient, and experts have said this would worsen product quality and lead to higher prices.
“It’s just spreading to more and more appliances. It seems that almost everything that plugs in or fires up around the house is either subject to a pending regulation or soon will be,” Ben Lieberman, a senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, told Fox News Digital in an interview.
“Consumers aren’t going to like any of it. These rules are almost always bad for consumers for the simple reason that they restrict consumer choice.
(Natural News) For the first time in many years, a truly honorable candidate is running for president as a Democrat, and his name is Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
The Health Ranger had the unique opportunity to speak with Kennedy recently about what he stands for, and how he is shaking up the Democrat Party in much the same way that Donald Trump shook up the Republican Party.
While many, including the Health Ranger, still do not agree with every single one of Kennedy’s positions, the guy deserves a lot of credit for sticking to his guns and bucking his party on numerous issues that are near and dear to his heart.
One of those issues is medical freedom. Since the beginning, Kennedy has opposed Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) “vaccines,” warning that they are dangerous and unnecessary. He also supports free and fair elections that are won not through cheating but through honesty.
Like Trump, Kennedy is not your typical politician. His beliefs are his own, and he is choosing not to back down from them, even if they do not align with the Democrat Party establishment.
Also like Trump, Kennedy has support from voters on both sides of the aisle. And if his message is able to get out without media censorship, Kennedy’s chances of winning the White House in 2024 will only continue to increase.
“I’m getting an outpouring of support among independents, among Republicans, among conservatives, and also in the Democratic Party,” Kennedy told the Health Ranger – be sure to watch the full interview below.
“The polls have come out … and they have me now at 20 or 21 percent among Democrats who are likely to vote, so that’s strong. And actually our private, in-house polling is showing us even stronger among Democrats, but really strong among independents and Republicans, which have not been publicly polled.”

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. cares about protecting the environment so we can all enjoy it
Kennedy and the Health Ranger also discussed other issues such as border security, election integrity, America’s energy supply and the stability of the energy grid, as well as the fractured nature of today’s society.
Concerning the climate, Kennedy also spoke at length about how he balances the issue of pollution and the environment, revealing his sincere care and concern about protecting our natural resources.
On this particular issue, Kennedy believes that carbon does cause climate change and global warming, which might not go over so well among conservatives who have largely come to the conclusion that man-made climate change is a farce.
We have reported at length on this issue as well, revealing that carbon is good for the environment, helping to produce more “greening.”
However, where Kennedy differs is in his approach to dealing with what he believes is true concerning climate change. Instead of the forced “green” tyranny his party is promoting, Kennedy says his focus is on dealing with damaging pollution.
“I’m not going to insist that anybody else believe that,” Kennedy explained about his personal views on climate change.
“I’ve said for 40 years that my focus is on the toxic impacts to communities … protecting habitat, to me, is the most important thing,” Kennedy further expounded, speaking about all the work he has done with commercial fisheries over the years.
“Habitats actually stabilize the climate in so many ways that we’re learning today, and there’s nothing more important than that.”

(Natural News) The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is facilitating a new chemical experiment across wheat, barley and oat crops in the United States. For the first time ever, the EPA approved widespread application of chlormequat chloride — a pesticide/growth retardant that has a toxic profile for birds, mammals, and human reproduction.
According to the National Institutes of Health, chlormequat chloride was listed in the EPA’s Extremely Hazardous Substances (EHS) Chemical Profiles and Emergency First Aid Guides back in 1998. It is listed as an organic chloride salt and a quaternary ammonium salt that “appears as white crystals with a fishlike odor.” The chemical functions as a growth regulator, forcing plants to produce sturdier, thicker stalks. The chemical will disrupt hormones and change the growth patterns of the plants, limiting the bending and breaking of the grain stalks.
Chlormequat harms fetal and postnatal development, fertility
Since 1962, chlormequat chloride has been used in greenhouses to control the growth of ornamental flowers and boost their continuity, but it has been restricted from widespread use on food crops, due to its toxic profile. Now, it will be used across the agricultural sector to boost wheat, barley, oat, and triticale production in the US, but this will come at a cost for both ecology and human health.
Dr. Phil Landrigan, a professor of public health and epidemiologist at Boston College, called out the EPA for failing to execute their “legal duty to protect infants and children against the toxic effects of pesticides.” Landrigan said the EPA “appears not to have taken that responsibility seriously.” Chlormequat residues will now multiply in the food supply and contaminate the groundwater.
Studies show that the chemical stunts more than just plant growth. A peer reviewed study found that rats exposed to the chemical have offspring with serious growth problems at the embryonic stage and in postnatal development. The chemical disrupted key hormones and caused the offspring to have increased head length, decreased body fat percentage, hypoglycemia, hyperlipidemia, and hyperproteinemia. The EPA’s own human health risk assessment found the chemical to have neurotoxic effects in rats, mice, and dogs. A Danish study documented serious reproductive health problems in swine that were fed wheat treated with chlormequat at levels lower than what is currently considered safe for humans.
Chlormequat use will increase 28,000-fold in the US and pollute cereal grains
The Center for Food Safety (CFS), a public health advocacy group, estimates that the EPA’s approval of chlormequat will increase its use by 28,000-fold across the American food supply. The newly-targeted crops are used to produce different kinds of cereal and make up a significant portion of a child’s diet. Over time, exposure to chlormequat residues could have a profound effect on children’s growth and hormonal development. “There appears to be evidence for developmental and reproductive toxicity,” Landrigan said of chlormequat research. “Some little kids will spend a year of their life eating mostly a Cheerio diet. That’s what kids do. And in the end, the children who happen to be eating that atypical diet are the ones who are really heavily exposed.”
The pesticide industry effectively pressured the EPA into giving the approval. In fact, the EPA issued the new rules for chlormequat after they were petitioned by Taminco US LLC, a subsidiary of Eastman Chemical Company, which is the manufacturer of chlormequat-containing pesticides.
Taminco’s 2021 petition asked the EPA to establish a new residue tolerance of 8 ppm for barley. In 2023, Taminco put more pressure on the EPA, asking the agency to establish new tolerances for oats at 40 ppm and for wheat and triticale grain at 5 ppm. Prior to the new rule, the EPA maintained pesticide residue levels for imported wheat barley at oats at 3 ppm, 2 ppm and 10 ppm, respectively. Other industry pressures are coming from The National Association of Wheat Growers and the National Barley Growers Association. Both Associations sent public comments to the EPA, pushing for expedited action on the chemical’s approval, so the industry can increase yields and reap economic advantages.
(Natural News) The development of the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine is littered with red flags, according to the Medical Rebel Dr. Lee Merritt. She expounded on these red flags during the May 3 episode of “Merritt Medical Hour” on Brighteon.TV.
The first red flag she saw was the spending of nearly $60 billion for mRNA technology research. According to the former Navy physician and surgeon, the research produced only two eye treatments in 2018. The said mRNA treatment cost about a million dollars per dose when it first came out, but eventually dropped to under $30 after just 18 months.
The second red flag, according to Merritt, was Pfizer lying to Americans about it having 11 manufacturing lines to produce the COVID-19 vaccine. Assuming they started production the day after they were given the approval via the emergency use authorization, Merritt said Pfizer would have to churn out 18.5 doses per second 24/7, with no holidays or downtime. But given the highly technical and serious quality control issues, this was a bigger red flag.
Merritt continued that the third and biggest red flag is the fact that research in mRNA is still ongoing worldwide. Researchers had been touting mRNA’s potential as a treatment for various diseases in places like Africa. However, mRNA won’t work in developing nations as they do not possess the infrastructure to keep the vaccines cold for long.
The Brighteon.TV host told viewers that the sub-zero freezing method was necessary to prevent the mRNA in the vaccine from degrading. She continued that the degradation of mRNA depends on the type of medium – whether it is in blood, plasma, lipid nanoparticle (LNP) or in some other material.
“The half-life is considered the time at which you can only find half of what’s remaining. So, 50 percent is degraded. And the half-life of this stuff – depending on the time and all the things I just mentioned – is from 3.5 minutes to 16.5 hours. That’s what I found,” Merritt said.
She also expressed belief that there is no RNA in the vaccine. Merritt cited the findings of independent laboratories that conducted tests on the vaccine, and found no genetic material whatsoever. According to her, the damage-causing component of the vaccines can be traced to the LNP.
The LNP contains multiple ingredients, such as positively-charged cationic lipids. She said the cationic lipid surrounded by a nanoparticle coating is toxic due to the graphene oxide it contains. Merritt pointed out that graphene oxide is the ultimate electron transport device that people have used.
(Natural News) Biological warfare epidemiologist Dr. Meryl Nass has warned that the World Health Organization‘s (WHO) “One Health” concept will put animals and ecosystems on the same level as humans.
In an interview with the independent media organization Bright Light News in Brussels, Belgium, the board-certified internist and anthrax expert said under the direction of the WHO’s Pandemic Treaty and proposed changes to the International Health Regulations (IHR), the United Nations specialized health agency would be given centralized powers superseding those of its 194 member states’ sovereign governments.
“One of the methods that are being used for the WHO to gain more power is a concept that was rolled out in Davos in 2012 at the World Economic Forum. This concept states that human health cannot be looked at in isolation. But instead, we must consider the health of animals, plants, the environment, water systems or ecosystems together,” Nass noted.
“In this connection, doctors are not allowed to look at health anymore. Instead, we need ecologists and veterinarians, pathologists, etcetera to be involved. Now, do you think the WHO is going to elevate animals to the status of humans? No, it’s going to lower humans to the status of animals.”
Congress passes law that seeks to develop a national “One Health Framework”
In December 2022, Congress passed and enacted into law a bill supported by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA). The bill seeks to develop a national “One Health Framework” that will coordinate federal activities in combating zoonotic disease outbreaks and advance public health preparedness.
The One Health language passed is taken from another bill, the “Advancing Emergency Preparedness Through One Health Act (HR 2061/S 681),” and directs the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the U.S.Department of Agriculture (USDA) to work with other relevant federal departments and agencies to develop the national framework.
“The One Health legislation passed by Congress will help strengthen the nation’s preparedness for diseases that can spread between animals and humans,” AVMA President Lori Teller said. “We have all witnessed the significant threat that zoonotic diseases pose to our society. With animals, humans, and the environment being more interconnected than ever, the AVMA applauds Congress for taking this crucial step forward in fully implementing a One Health Framework so we can better protect public health.”
The passage of the legislation was lauded by Dr. Bruce Kaplan, co-founder of the One Health Initiative.
“Passage of this long-overdue One Health Framework provision by the Congress is heartening and I am delighted,” said Kaplan. “However, my fervent hope is, as Winston Churchill said, ‘Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.’”
The law mandates relevant federal agencies to submit a proposed framework to Congress within a year. The AVMA said it will work with lawmakers and federal agencies on the implementation of the legislation.
