A new diabetes drug that hit the market in the past week boasts it can drop your glucose levels and flush out “guilty” calories every time you use the bathroom.

Experts say that every time the patient urinates, out goes all the unwanted sugar and calories.

Doctors say this drug could even help prevent Type 2 diabetes.

KVUE’s sister station KENS went behind closed doors at the Veterans Affairs hospital to witness clinical trials for other drugs similar to Invokana.

Last Friday, the FDA approved Invokana, a drug experts are hailing as a game changer for Type 2 diabetes treatment.

The drug works in the kidneys and blocks an enzyme that would put sugar back in the bloodstream.

Dr. Devjit Tripathy with UT Medicine San Antonio, the clinical practice of the School of Medicine at the UT Health Science Center, says the drug helps curb obesity.

“This drug not only has the potential to treat Type 2 diabetes but also obesity,” Tripathy said. “With the loss of a lot of glucose, you lose a lot of calories and by that you lose weight.”

People Not In Labor Force Soar By 663,000 To 90 Million, Labor Force Participation Rate At 1979 Levels!

Things just keep getting worse for the American worker, and by implication US economy, where as we have shown many times before, it pays just as well to sit back and collect disability and various welfare and entitlement checks, than to work .The best manifestation of this: the number of people not in the labor force which in March soared by a massive 663,000 to a record 90 million Americans who are no longer even looking for work. This was the biggest monthly increase in people dropping out of the labor force since January 2012, when the BLS did its census recast of the labor numbers. And even worse, the labor force participation rate plunged from an already abysmal 63.5% to 63.3% – the lowest since 1979! But at least it helped with the now painfully grotesque propaganda that the US unemployment rate is “improving.”

People not in labor force:

Obama budget to take aim at “wealthy” people’s IRAs!

President Obama’s budget, to be released next week, will limit how much wealthy individuals – like Mitt Romney – can keep in IRAs and other retirement accounts.

The proposal would save around $9 billion over a decade, a senior administration official said, while also bringing more fairness to the tax code.

The senior administration official said that wealthy taxpayers can currently “accumulate many millions of dollars in these accounts, substantially more than is needed to fund reasonable levels of retirement saving.”

The Coming Global Warming Voter Backlash

News is breaking out all over: global warming stopped 20 years ago.

A political earthquake has resulted from a feature story in the Economist magazine because the Economist used to be a consistent cheerleader for global warming activism.  Doubts about global warming used to be censored by its London editors, one reporter confided to Stephen Hayward.

So what will voters do to Democrat candidates in 2014 and 2016 when the former realize that the Democratic Party was lying to them?  Is it time to run away from the issue for Democrats, journalists, and Hollywood personalities?

While our economy is struggling and our nation in debt, Democrats squandered tens of billions on a climate change hoax.  How many voters are unemployed due to climate change polices?  Unnecessary regulations are strangling people’s jobs and their lives.  And then one must wonder: what else were Democrats unbelievably wrong about?

Can Democrats hide by claiming that climate change hysteria was an innocent mistake?  It was never a credible story.  Democrats, journalists, and liberal commentators went way out on a limb.  Like the collapse of ENRON or Bernie Maddoff’s Ponzi schemes, political fortunes have been built on the shifting sand of bad science.  Japan’s Society of Energy and Resources in February 2009 declared the myth of man-made global warming to be like “ancient astrology.”

Jeremy Irons: Gay marriage could lead to fathers marrying their sons to avoid tax (AWESOME)

Jeremy Irons

Actor Jeremy Irons claims that gay marriage could lead to fathers getting married to their sons – for tax reasons.

The 64-year-old claimed he didn’t have ‘strong feelings’ about same-sex marriage but said it could be used to allow fathers to pass estates on to sons without being taxed.

Speaking to Huffington Post Live host Josh Zepps, Irons asked: ‘Could a father not marry his son?’

He claimed incest laws could not prevent it from happening because: ‘It’s not incest between men. Incest is there to protect us from inbreeding but men don’t breed.’

The Borgias star added that he wishes ‘everybody who’s living with one other person the best of luck in the world because it’s fantastic’.

‘Living with another animal, whether it be a husband or a dog, is great,’ he said.

‘It’s lovely to have someone to love. I don’t think sex matters at all. What it’s called doesn’t matter at all.’

‘It’s ok for homosexuals…how is this different?’ Lawyer defends Columbia professor charged with incest

David Epstein is charged with third-degree incest over an alleged three-year sexual relationship with his 24-year-old daughter

The lawyer representing a professor charged with incest with his 24-year-old daughter has questioned why the alleged affair has been made public.

David Epstein was charged last week with one count of incest for what was allegedly a consensual three-year sexual relationship with his daughter.

The political science professor at Columbia University, 46, allegedly slept with her between 2006 and 2009.

Epstein, who specialises in American politics and voting rights, is also said to have exchanged twisted text messages with the woman during their relationship.

Matthew Galluzzo, defending Epstein, has said that even though his daughter had emerged as a victim in the case, she could ‘best be described as an accomplice’.

He told ABCNews.com: ‘Academically, we are obviously all morally opposed to incest and rightfully so.

‘At the same time, there is an argument to be made in the Swiss case to let go what goes on privately in bedrooms.

‘It’s ok for homosexuals to do whatever they want in their own home. How is this so different?

Illegal Alien Murders AZ Mom For Denying Him Sex With Her 13-Year Old Daughter

Monsters among us: yet another illegal alien pedophile strikes

-

Illegal aliens are leaving a trail of victims from coast to coast – a massive crime wave that most Americans don’t know about – because the media typically plays it down. And so frequently the victims are children or involve children – thanks to a perverse Mexican culture that virtually ensures the victimization of the young.

There was one such a murder last night in Arizona. Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his Maricopa County Sheriff’s detectives are  are investigating the murder that happened late Monday night in Aquila, AZ, 45 miles Northwest of Phoenix.

Authorities say an argument ensued after the suspect, 25-year-old Jose Zarate, went to 31-year-old Maria Saucedo’s home around 9:30 p.m. Zarate reportedly wanted to take Saucedo’s 13-year old daughter to his home, presumably for sex. When she refused, an argument ensued and Zarate pulled out a rifle and shot her in the chest at close range — in the presence of the teen.

According to MCSO, “One of several witnesses to the crime apparently disarmed Zarate before he fled the area on foot.”  When they arrived at the scene, deputies administered CPR on Saucedo, but she was later pronounced dead.

“How awful this is that a mother loses her life in the process of defending her daughter’s honor,” said Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Sen. Schumer’s “prison lobby” ties alarm pro illegal alien groups

Immigration rights advocates are turning their fire on one of their own champions, Sen. Charles E. Schumer, demanding he stop taking donations from lobbyists for private prisons, which earn money by holding illegal immigrants for the U.S. government.

Advocates delivered petitions to Mr. Schumer’s New York City office on Tuesday and began walking the streets in heavily Hispanic neighborhoods in the city to raise the heat on the third-term Democratic senator, underscoring how worried they are that he will undercut them as he tries to negotiate a final immigration deal with seven other senators.

“His priorities have been really misguided in terms of focusing on more enforcement,” said Cesar Vargas, executive political director of the DRM Action Coalition, which was helping organize Tuesday’s events. “We’re bringing that [information] not only to us rallying in front of his office, but now we’re litigating his record to voters in the public sphere.”

ObamaCare in Trouble? Exchange provision delayed, as lawmakers push to repeal

Published on: April 3, 2013

Parts of ObamaCare are starting to fray, even before full implementation.

The Obama administration now says a special system of exchanges designed to make it easier for small businesses to provide insurance will be delayed an entire year — to 2015.

“Lots of small businesses struggle with providing insurance for their workers so this was supposed to facilitate it and make it easier for small business to do this,” said Jim Capretta of the Ethics and Public Policy Center. “It was a huge portion of the sale job. When they passed the law in 2010 there were many senators and members of Congress who were saying ‘I am doing this because it’s going to help small businesses.’”

The exchanges were designed to give workers a range of choices supported by dollars from their employers. But now they will have only one choice until 2015, which could mean they can’t shop for insurance that includes their current providers. Capretta said the administration is “way” behind schedule.

Britain’s debt mountain reaches £1.39TRILLION, equivalent to 90% of the entire economy!

Britain’s debt mountain has topped £1.387trillion, and is now the equivalent of 90 per cent of the entire economy.

The grim milestone was passed at the end of 2012, new figures from the Office for National Statistics revealed today.

It lays bare the dire state of the nation’s finances in the wake of the 2007 financial crash, which has seen government debt double in just five years.

Gross national debt has risen dramatically since the financial crash in 2007, new figures from the Office for National Statistics showGross national debt has risen dramatically since the financial crash in 2007, new figures from the Office for National Statistics show

The shocking figure will be used later this month to compare Britain’s finances to the rest of Europe.

The ONS said that in December gross debt, which includes all financial liabilities of both central and local government but does not take account of liquid assets, was £1,387,436,000,000, up seven per cent on a year earlier.

By comparison, the entire British economy was valued at £1,541,465,000,000.

The dismal state of government borrowing has already forced Chancellor George Osborne to abandon his target to see net debt, a different measure, falling as a percentage of the economy by 2015-16.  But he has refused to budge on his austerity programme.

Female Marines Fail Infantry Officer Course (Hey, Just Lower The Standards…)

AP

The only two women to participate in the Marine Corps Infantry Officer Course (IOC) failed ongoing tests to determine which infantry positions should be available to women, according to the Marine Corps Times:

The women failed the introductory Combat Endurance Test, a punishing test of physical strength and endurance, officials at Marine Corps headquarters said Tuesday. The latest class began March 28 at Marine Corps Base Quantico, Va., with 110 lieutenants participating. Ninety-six men passed the initial endurance test. Twelve men and two women — the only female Marines taking part — failed.

The two women both volunteered to participate in the IOC. Two other women had previously volunteered in September but also failed.

White House encourages Democrats to rush immigration bill through Congress

President Obama believes that the expected bipartisan immigration reform proposal should not receive extended scrutiny by lawmakers in committee, according to his spokesman, who said that immigration debates in past year should suffice.

“[A]s veterans of the Senate know, this issue has been under consideration at very serious levels periodically for a long time now,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said during the gaggle today.  “There is a great need to act on comprehensive immigration reform and a great opportunity to do it now, as the President has made clear.  It has been in the past, and seems to be now, a bipartisan priority.  And that is as it should be, in the President’s view.”

Carney was rejecting Rubio’s call for “regular order,” which would entail multiple hearings on the bill and provide senators with greater latitude to offer amendments to the bill.

Yahoo News: Polyamory is a good idea kids!

Is three always company?

Ask any woman to describe the three most important things in a relationship, and monogamy will typically round out the list.

Maintaining monogamy with a single partner can be incredibly important, but it can also be tricky. The deck is stacked against those looking to be with one person for the rest of their lives, both from a biological and an evolutionary perspective. Plus, well, there’s the simple fact that so many people fail at it.

If you’re feeling hopeless about your prospects for monogamy, it’s reassuring to remember that there are plenty of people in healthy and happy relationships that aren’t monogamous.

The very concept of polyamory – engaging in open relationships in which a person can be involved with more than one partner – can seem terrifying to the lifelong monogamist (which most of us are). I met my first open couple about a year ago and it made me nervous in the way meeting steampunk enthusiasts makes me nervous: I didn’t understand what made them tick.

In the time since, I’ve gotten to know several non-monogamous couples, and they not only seem very happy but also extremely devoted to each other.

Climate Change Endgame In Sight? (Global Warming Hoax Collapses)

In my Weekly Standard cover story about the fallout from the “Climategate” email scandal three years ago, I offered the following question by way of prediction:

Eventually the climate modeling community is going to have to reconsider the central question: Have the models the IPCC uses for its predictions of catastrophic warming overestimated the climate’s sensitivity to greenhouse gases?

The article then went on to survey emerging research (U.S. government funded!) casting doubt on high estimates of climate sensitivity, along with alternative explanations on some climate factors, such as “black carbon.”  The question in my mind at the time was how long this would take to begin to break out into the “mainstream” scientific and media world.

Figure 1

That day appears to have arrived.  The new issue of The Economist has a long feature on the declining confidence in the high estimates of climate sensitivity.  That this appears in The Economist is significant, because this august British news organ has been fully on board with climate alarmism for years now.  A Washington-based Economist correspondent admitted to me privately several years ago that the senior editors in London had mandated consistent and regular alarmist climate coverage in its pages.

The problem for the climateers is increasingly dire.  As The Economist shows in its first chart (Figure 1 here), the recent temperature record is now falling distinctly to the very low end of its predicted range and may soon fall out of it, which means the models are wrong, or, at the very least, that there’s something going on that supposedly “settled” science hasn’t been able to settle.
