Happy Wednesday.

The Lead: Impeaching Joe Biden

credit: ap

House Republicans have opened a formal impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden. This increases the chance of a second president in a row to be impeached by at least one chamber of Congress. 

Senate Democrats likely won’t go for it but they will have to face it. At this point, it is all politics. Clearly, Joe Biden and his son Hunter have participated in politics for financial gain for at least the last decade. The question is: who wants to take the time to care in public for their political gain? 

The Wall Street Journal makes the case that “impeachment is the new censure.” In fact, they predicted in 2019 when Democrats voted to impeach President Trump that “the House has defined impeachment down to a standard that will now make more impeachments likely.” 

And here we are. It feels like a glass half empty/full question. Is this an indication that politics is irreparably partisan or is this actually an indication of equal justice under the law? If Trump could face impeachment over a phone call as a political favor, then surely all of the monies and favors traded by the Bidens should be worthy of scrutiny, right? 

CDC Rolls Out New Vaccines

The CDC voted to recommend the new Covid vaccine to all persons over 6 months of age. This means that the federal government will pay for them once again. 

This is an odd move given that the CDC admits that vaccination is a risk factor of contracting the new variant. It is also odd given that young people do not show an increased risk of severe Covid. It is also odd because these new vaccines did not go through clinical trials and neither Pfizer nor Moderna are able to say how long protection lasts for these vaccines. It is also odd because both Pfizer and Moderna acknowledge in the new vaccine Fact Sheets that the Covid vaccine has serious adverse events and that "the possible side effects are still being studied.”

Puzzling, right? 

So why this blanket recommendation of the vaccine for an entire population regardless of medical history? In the U.K., the government is only recommending the vaccine for specific at-risk populations. 

In Canada, Dr. Theresa Tam, the chief public officer of health, spoke in a mask on Tuesday to warn the country that Canada is at the “beginning” of a fall respiratory season. The new Moderna vaccine was approved by Health Canada. Moderna recently opened a large vaccine factory in Canada.

U.S. Continues to Steal Syria's Oil

Syria would like to remind the world that the United States is illegally occupying its country and stealing its oil. The nation has appealed to the United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and Security Council President Ferit Hoxha for help. 

In a summary letter, the Syrian Foreign Ministry says that “the US and its tools of terrorist organizations and militias continue to violate Syrian sovereignty and plunder the country’s wealth and strategic resources.” They demand an end to the occupation and a “return of lands it occupies and the oil and gas fields of the Syrian state.”

It is not just land, it is also oil. Syria says that the U.S. has stolen $115.2 billion worth of oil at an average of 150,000 barrels per day. 

The U.S. Congress recently voted NOT to end the occupation in Syria and General Mark Milley said recently that the U.S. would be there for the foreseeable future. 

Last year UN Deputy Spokesperson for the Secretary-General Farhan Haq was asked about this by Chinese journalist Dezhi Xu. He seemed very confused by the question. It's been more than a year since then. Maybe they'll understand it by now?

Processed Food Addiction

Is ultra-processed food creating addictions such as those we normally associate with drugs and alcohol? That is what a recent study suggests

One group of adults were asked to eat high-fat, high-sugar yogurt for eight weeks. Another was given low-fat, low-sugar yogurt. At the end of the trial, the group that ate the sugary yogurt showed “decreased preference” for the low-sugar one. 

The scientists showed that the higher processed foods triggered the release of dopamine, the brain’s reward regions. They likened this to amphetamines like speed! 

In fact, brain scans show the same behavior in food and drug addicts. According to Scientific American, “When researchers showed pictures of cocaine to drug addicts or photographs of donuts to healthy people, the same brain regions—ranging from the ventral striatum and amygdala to the cerebellum—lit up in both groups. And the stronger the volunteers’ reported craving was, the more intense their neural response was as well."
