Trump Supporters Say He’s Still Their Guy Because ‘At Least He’s White’

Despite a litany of scandals and looming indictments from the Russia investigation, support for President Donald Trump, among his core supporters, doesn’t seem to be dwindling.

A recent Occidental Public Polling survey of Trump voters showed 89 percent of them still supported him.

According to the latest OPP poll, several Trump supporters dismissed reports of Trump’s scandals and legal woes as “fake news.” One Trump supporter “Bob” from Arizona said, “at least we have a real American, white guy back in charge.”

Jason Johnson, a political writer for The Root, said Trump supporters are unlikely to ever abandon him because he promises a return to an America that doesn’t exist anymore.

“This is why poll after poll shows supporters sticking with Trump no matter how many times he fails or completely betrays his policy promises. They never expected him to change anything, and they never will. All they need to know is that he drives liberals crazy (and to them, “liberals” are anyone who isn’t a Trump supporter), that he’s white and male, and doesn’t challenge Americans to grow up and change,” said Johnson.

Poverty-stricken Trump supporters beg the president to help: “We don’t want to live on false hope”

he residents of America’s poorest town, Beattyville, Kentucky, are losing hope in the Trump administration.

“I’ve lived in poverty my entire life,” Melissa Allen, 34, said. “There’s really no hope. I don’t understand why the minimum wage here can’t be raised. I don’t get that. I hope it gets better. I really do, but I just don’t want to live on false hope.”

52-year-old Donna Coomer; “Have you ever tried to live on $7.25 an hour? It was horrible.” She also thanks God for Trump’s election, believing he will change things.

Pegg Stewart, 62, just begs the President to help. “Mr. Trump, please take care of us. We’re looking to you.”

Sadly, many Americans in the same situation, who voted for Trump, can’t connect the President’s policies with their own sufferings. For instance, they don’t connect that while they want and need a higher minimum wage, the Republicans don’t—and Trump even suggested getting rid of it altogether.

Under Trump, the residents of Beattyville will only suffer more, and hopefully, they will start to see why.

“Pro-family” GOP lawmaker: If women can breastfeed in public, I can grab their breasts

Family values’ conservative Josh Moore said on Facebook he should be allowed to grab the breasts of breastfeeding mothers if a law banning women exposing breasts in public didn’t pass.

New Hampshire state Republican Josh Moore soon after deleted the comment.

In 2015 Moore sponsored a bill that would make it a crime for women to expose their nipples in the state.

“Purposely exposes the areola or nipple of her breast or breasts in a public place and in the presence of another person with reckless disregard for whether a reasonable person would be offended or alarmed by such act.”

It is currently legal in New Hampshire for both genders to be topless in public.

New Hampshire State Rep. Amanda Bouldin took to Facebook to criticize the bill and call out her male, Republican “small government” colleagues. That’s when things got awkward.

Houston Televangelist Joel Osteen Refuses To Open His Megachurch For Flood Survivors

Televangelist Joel Osteen is the Senior Pastor of Lakewood Church, an enormous 16,000 seat “Megachurch” in Houston, Texas. His televised sermons are seen by over 7 million viewers weekly and over 20 million monthly in over 100 countries.

The pastor is a celebrity in Houston and a very, very wealthy man. Osteen believes in and preaches the “Prosperity Gospel,” which is effectively the belief that if you do good things, you will get material blessings from God. And it certainly works for Osteen, who lives in a $10.5 million mansion in Houston.

His followers were surprised that Osteen hasn’t opened up his megachurch, that was converted from an arena that seats over 16,000, to the thousands of people that have been displaced by flooding following Hurricane Harvey.

Osteen has tweeted, saying, “Victoria & I are praying for everyone affected by Hurricane Harvey. Please join us as we pray for the safety of our Texas friends & family.” But his followers were not happy.

Disruptions due to hurricanes and natural disasters at drug treatment programs are common after major disasters. Highly regulated drug and alcohol rehabs confront challenges when responding to extended closures following a natural disaster. Following Hurricane Sandy in 2012, many addiction treatment facilities located in Manhattan, Newark, and Miami had to close. Including Veteran Affairs Medical Center that closed for 6 months. Several interviews with couples drug rehab patients , revealed the hardship families suffered when hurricanes close down treatment facilities .The Manhattan OTP preemptively dispensed emergency take-home methadone and suboxone doses. Following the unfortunate closure, emergency guest-dosing arrangements were made for approximately 100 patients with heroin addiction issues.Another rehab facility was reopened and accredited expeditiously by the DCF. OTPs must improve contingencies for emergency response. However, disruptions in suboxone, and methadone delivery and threats to patient safety are likely to continue until mental health agencies with oversight authority of OTPs describe specifications for emergency alternate care sites during long-term natural disaster recovery.

pastor joel osteen advice on kratom

Kratom Dosage

If you’re a new user of kratom, you are probably asking yourself the same question as anyone who’s heard of the benefits that come with the consumption of this powder – what’s the correct dosage? Every new kratom user needs to consume just the right dose in order to reap the benefits it offers.

The next question is usually about tolerance. As the craze surrounding the tolerance topic has escalated in the past couple of years, even experienced kratom users start asking this question. Before we go into discussing the right dosage, let’s see what the term kratom tolerance means.

What is Kratom Tolerance?

In time and after continuous use of kratom, users become dependent on the substance and need to add more to their daily dose of kratom to get the same effects that they got in the very beginning. Since the body adjusts to the effects of the plant, it becomes much less sensitive to the substance.

This eventually requires the user to increase the dose and take more. With that in mind, you should definitely learn how to determine your correct kratom dosage.

Correct Kratom Dosage

Kratom is a plant that can be found in Southeast Asia, as well as some parts of Africa. In the past, farmers who lived on these lands chewed kratom leaves to get more energy to work their fields. As a result of the psychoactive properties of kratom and its continuous, unregulated consumption, this drug was soon banned in Malaysia and Thailand.

This was the case for a very long time — more specifically, since 1979 in Thailand. However, just last year, Thailand legalized both medical marijuana and Kratom, which should decrease the illegal use and incidence of overdose in the country.

At this point, kratom is a very popular drug, often smuggled from the Thailand jungles and sold in other countries such as the US. As a result of this – and as with most opiates — kratom also varies in terms of quality. If you aren’t careful, you might come across a product of very poor quality.

Unless you are dosing intelligently and strategically, you’ll rapidly develop a tolerance for the kratom strain you are using. If you’re not careful, you’ll increase from a dose of 2 grams to a dose of 6 grams, since you won’t even feel the effects of the smaller dose.

To prevent tolerance, you need to rotate different strains in your kratom dosage. Try to consume a new strain of the plant each day. In any case, you should avoid overlapping a single strain within three or four days.

Also, you should try to abide by the following rules:

  • Take only one strain per day, even if you take it several times
  • Rotate five to seven different strains, depending on your budget
  • Learn to tell the types of kratom apart

Set a Rotation Schedule

The correct dosage should be based on a rotation schedule. Once you have a schedule for rotating and dosing, following it should be your priority. If you are a newbie, you should purchase four to seven bags of one ounce each. Naturally, each of these bags should contain a different strain of kratom.

When you’re taking kratom, keep in mind that you need to wait a couple hours after you consume a meal. Also, remember to stay hydrated before, during, and after taking it. If you follow these tips, you can enjoy each dose and get the desired effects the drug provides.

If you plan to use kratom, make sure to set a rotation schedule and follow it. If you don’t, tolerance is very likely and overdose is possible. Enjoy kratom safely!
