THAT’S WHY THIS CERTIFICATION ISSUE IS SO IMPORTANT. >>AND TOM JOINS US NOW. TOM, THE LETTER SAYS THE FAA WAS NOTIFIED INSPECTORS MAY HAVE HAD INADEQUATE TRAINING AS RECENTLY AS LAST AUGUST. WHAT IS THE AGENCY SAYING ABOUT THIS? >>YEAH, THAT’S RIGHT.

THE PRESIDENT’S UNDER PRESSURE TO DROP HIS RENEWED HEALTH CARE PUSH FROM REPUBLICAN LEADERS LIKE SENATOR MITCH McCONNELL. >>I MADE IT CLEAR TO HIM WE WERE NOT GOING TO BE DOING THAT IN THE SENATE. >>Reporter: AFTER ALL, THE REPUBLICANS CONTROLLED BOTH CHAMBERS OF CONGRESS UP UNTIL THIS YEAR AND STILL DIDN’T HAVE THE VOTES TO OVERHAUL OBAMACARE. ENDING THE LAW WITHOUT AN IMMEDIATE REPLACEMENT WOULD LEAVE TENS OF MILLIONS OF PEOPLE WITHOUT COVERAGE. PEOPLE LIKE ANGIE SETTLE SEES AT THE FREE CLINIC SHE RUNS. >>I’M NOT HERE TO SAY THAT IT’S PERFECT, BUT WE CAN’T AFFORD TO REPEAL THAT PART WHERE THEY EXPANDED MEDICAID.

WHY IS THIS ISSUE SO IMPORTANT THAT YOU FELT THE NEED TO SPEAK OUT? >>THE PROTECTION OF NATIONAL SECURITY IS NOT A DEMOCRATIC ISSUE OR A REPUBLICAN ISSUE. IT’S AN AMERICAN ISSUE. >>Reporter: NEWBOLD, WHO HAS FILED A DISCRIMINATION COMPLAINT AGAINST HER WHITE HOUSE SUPERIOR TOLD LAWMAKERS ABOUT THOSE OFFICIALS SERIOUS DISQUALIFYING ISSUES INCLUDING FOREIGN INFLUENCE AND CONFLICT OF INTEREST.

AND ACCORDING TO “THE NEW YORK TIMES,” THE PRESIDENT PERSONALLY ORDERED IT, BUT THE PRESIDENT HAS DENIED IT. LEGALLY, HE HAS THE POWER TO GRANT CLEARANCES TO ANYONE HE CHOOSES. OVERNIGHT KUSHNER ON FOX NEWS DISMISSED NEWBOLD’S CONCERNS. >>I’VE BEEN ACCUSED OF ALL DIFFERENT TYPES OF THINGS, AND ALL THOSE THINGS HAVE TURNED OUT TO BE FALSE. >>Reporter: NEWBOLD NOW FEARS LOSING HER JOB. >>I’M ALWAYS CONCERNED, BUT IT’S IMPORTANT WE STAND UP TO DO THE RIGHT THING, NO MATTER WHAT. >>PETER ALEXANDER, NBC NEWS, THE WHITE HOUSE. >>>NOW TO THE RIPPLE EFFECT OF THE OPIOID EPIDEMIC IN AMERICA, AND ONE CRISIS THAT MAY BE CAUSING ANOTHER FOR THE 50 MILLION AMERICANS LIVING WITH CHRONIC PAIN.

HER DOCTORS SAY SHE NEVER ABUSED THEM. BUT TWO YEARS AGO, THEY TAPERED DOWN THE STRENGTH OF HER OPIOID PATCH AND PILLS TO LESS THAN HALF WHAT IT USED TO BE. >>I COULD GO OUTSIDE AND PLANT A FLOWER. I COULD WALK MY DOGS. ALL THOSE THINGS I CAN’T DO ANYMORE. >>Reporter: SHE HAS TRIED EVERYTHING, FROM MEDICAL MARIJUANA TO STEROID INJECTIONS. NOTHING ELSE WORKS. >>YOU FEEL LIKE YOU’RE GIVEN THREE CHOICES. YOU EITHER LIVE IN AGONIZING INTRACTABLE PAIN THAT DOESN’T EVER GO AWAY, OR YOU GO TO THE STREET AND GET THE DRUGS OFF THE STREET, WHICH CAN KILL YOU, OR YOU COMMIT SUICIDE. >>Reporter: SHE UNDERSTANDS WHY THE CDC ISSUED NEW GUIDELINES IN 2016 ENCOURAGING DOCTORS TO CONSIDER TAPERING PATIENTS OFF HIGH DOSES. TOO MANY LIVES HAVE BEEN DESTROYED BY ABUSE OF OPIOIDS.

I WANT TO BE ABLE TO FUNCTION. >>LESTER, THE CDC SAYS DOCTORS WERE NEVER MANDATED TO REDUCE OR DISCONTINUE DRUGS. THEY’RE NOW STUDYING THE IMPACT OF THOSE NEW GUIDELINES. IT IS COMPLICATED. DOCTORS WANT TO HELP THOSE IN REAL CHRONIC PAIN WITHOUT FACILITATING SUBSTANCE ABUSE. LESTER? >>KATE SNOW, THANK YOU. >>>JUST AHEAD, OUTRAGE AT A HOSPITAL ACCUSED OF SECRETLY RECORDING NEARLY 2,000 WOMEN DURING SURGERIES, EVEN DURING CHILDBIRTH. >>>THEN WHERE PRICES ARE COMING DOWN AS THE GROCERY WARS HEAT UP.

  1. It all went downhill when Obama made 18-26 yr olds stay on their parents ins. All those millions of citizens stopped purchasing private ins.

  2. It has always amazed me that fuel tanks at airports, propane storage tanks at gas facilities and tanks with explosive, flammable, toxic chemicals are parked as close to one another as physically possible. I know land is expensive but so is the practice of piling one explosive flammable storage container on top of another. Spread it out, minimize the collateral damage.

  3. I told you the ChiComs are Not our friends! They are cheating and stealing every technology under the sun and using it against us to spy on us to gain a continued economic advantage over us. They should all be deported!

  4. It's just amazing to me how they are there to pay respect to a man whom lost his life to gun violence and someone bring a gun there when are people going wake up and put those gun down and pick up some knowledge…..

  5. What's the sense in making a big deal about the Cheating / bribery scandal when those White women stand no chance at doing any time …

    Just give them a fine and move on… and they say white privilege doesn't exist….

  6. Strange how they relax all restrictions on chemical plants and factories and all the sudden there's all these problems with massive poison in the air – Hmmm and Trumpfs EPA Says it's safe. Bas tards.

  7. Breaking news on MULTIPLE FRONTS? Breaking news is when you break normal programming for an important event. I swear, the guys in the studio are like "how can we troll our viewers more"? "Breaking… TROLOLOL"…. triggered XD

  8. Just like with the FAA and Boeing and the disasters that resulted, the Trump Admin is doing the same thing to the FDA which inspects our food. Starting in May, pork producers will be doing their own inspections. Trump is going to cause people to get sick. Vote against every republican in 2020.

  9. Who do you think brings in the heroin and cocaine? Tons of illegal drugs come into our country via United States government.

  10. Whole Foods? Whole Foods has a million scams. Here's a favorite one: Suddenly, the price you've been paying all along for a product is the "sale price." When the "sale" ends, the price goes back to the "normal" price…20% higher than it was before the "sale." Another favorite? A specialty brand that rarely goes on sale goes on sale…but a couple of their products that are most in demand suddenly aren't in stock. From day 1 of the sale. Magically, however, when the sale is over, that product is back on the shelf. The very next day.

    No, I'm not brain dead, WH. I see what you did there. After all, these are the folks that brought us $10/lb cole slaw. What else would you expect? I quit shopping at WH for anything but specialty items I can't find anywhere else. (And to get a laugh at people who pay $10/lb for cole slaw). Citing Whole Foods as the poster child for reducing grocery costs is like citing Hitler as the spokesperson for all-inclusiveness.

  11. How come most of the dumb slobs who make comments on this site, cannot spell or formulate a proper sentence?

  12. Excellent piece on the traumatic effect the CDC guidelines and their misapplication has had on CPP (Chronic Pain Patients). However, doctors aren't afraid of the CDC, they're afraid of the DEA who, as described by at lest one doctor, are no better than terrorists. The CDC has publicly admitted they used inflated and erroneous numbers in their count of prescription medication overdose deaths. They have since updated these, to better reflect the number, while it's commonly believed by many, physicians & experts alike, to still be over the actual amount.
    There is an abundance of proof, including the CDC's own data, that what's responsible for the vast majority of ODs is illicit fentanyl and heroin and the actual rate of addiction to prescription pain meds by CPP is actually less than 1%. When citizens are dying at the rate of up to 50 a day , including Vets, for no other reason than regulations put in place by the govt, it needs to be seen for what it is; the beginning of a genocide. This time of of forced suffering and torture will be remembered in history, meanwhile we suffer and die and the majority of the general public believes what the CDC's PR firm pushes- a false narrative harming everyone from the chronically ill, cancer and hospice patients to Vets, children and the elderly.

  13. TRUMP KEEPS TELLING THAT HIS FATHER WAS BORN IN A NICE PLACE IN GERMANY.
    HIS ACTIONS SHOWS HE COULD BE RIGHT, AND HE IS RELATED TO HITLER OR
    ONE OF THOSE NAZI GANGS.

  14. OMG. I feel for the lady needing the pain medication. The damage to my back, per neurosurgeon, would require rods and screws. As I would still have the pain, plus pain from the hardware, I declined. My pain was at least slightly controlled by Norco, about the mildest form of hydrocodone there is. The Govt, per Jeff Sessions, reclassified it. I can have #3 per month from #60. I was never addicted, but I only took as needed. They said I could go to a pain clinic to get more, but I told them forget it. I take Tylenol, antiinflammatories, etc. Some days I just can't function. Pain is a THING and sends my BP through the roof. People with diabetes have their sugar through the roof. It is unconsciouable that it can't be treated without the patient being treated as a drug addict. Any other symptoms are treated.

  15. Donnie said: "I wanted to wait." (Uh huh.. sure you did)
    Mitch said: "I made it clear to him.." Obvious who's in charge! Donnie is just there to sign Mitch's orders.

  16. F*** Amazon just keeps getting bigger and bigger. Because of all the free press they get. They put out some b***** news story and the media eat it up like it's candy. I don't care what Amazon is doing. I don't use them anymore I don't like Jeff bezos.

  17. I must be the only one that may think this but how convenient is it that there is a news helicopter to capture the explosion of the second and maybe fairly close to the first fire like to say maybe the media was givin a tip point your camera at this plant on this day on this time and you will get news. and 2 weeks from now over here hey you want to let us know before the next one? that would be grand you are there before police or fire you could have maybe warned them in advance rather then getting in to a position suitable for capturing it as it happened.

  18. After Amazon bought Whole Food, they never had the sale like used to. I hardly shopping there anymore. Not an Amazon fan.

  19. druggies will get drugs no matter what. I know exactly what that woman is going through who is in chronic pain 24/7. They have done the same thing to me. I could walk, I could work, I could cut my own grass, clean my own house. I had my first back surgery at 15. I am now 65. The last 6 years have been horrible pain wise. All the things I use to do because my pain was under control I can no longer do. I miss playing in the dirt and playing with my grand kids. Now I sit. All because of people that are hurting mentally. And that to is sad. But do not take away from those who suffer physically. It is two totally different things.

  20. Trump has no business being there.
    How many times has he been there playing golf?… when he himself said he would work more than any previous POTUS. Oh yeah, he gets to put more money into his pockets buy charging security and staff.

  21. 張玉靜 – A Chinese spy lied her way into Mara Lago. Big deal. A big, fat, orange moron lied his way into the White House.

  22. Does it strike anybody else, as bazaar, that China and Russia have leaders that obviously have more class, integrity, and intelligence than we do??

  23. what does it matter that a woman tried to get in to Mar-A-Lago. Everyone there has top secret security clearance anyway.

  24. Yummy. That thick black smoke looks so safe, just as the EPA says. Doesn't it make you want to take a deep breath of that?

  25. By the way TRUMP knew that lady was there he just told her to act normal, she just forgot her swimsuit 😁😁😁😁😂😂😂

  26. Yep. We Texans don't want ta have all them "regulations" on our chemical plants. They get in the way of profits!

  27. the fed govt shouldnt be involved to that level in a patient's life to cause her chronic pain to not be treated

  28. Tomorrow's news will say that those high school students in the robotics club were all offered scholarships.

  29. STOP YOUR STUPID FAKE NEWS ON TRUMP MAR DEL LAGO..AGAIN A TRICK FROM TRUMP AGAINST THE CHINESE! Do you really think that a spy will be with so stupid to go in Mar del Lago…

  30. Hope nobody in this world buy this plane….and as usual lying and cheating people and keeping quiet when an accident happened!

  31. Exactly WHITE CHEATING WAY! They think that because they are white they can do whatever they want…corrupted and cheaters….

  32. Chronic pain is horrible. It takes your life away. Everyday is a struggle. The simplest of things takes so much energy. I feel for the woman in the segment. I feel for every single person who deals with chronic pain. It has caused my life to grind to a halt. I work, come home and recover from work to just do it all over again.

  33. Taken together with the white pagoda 'Trojan horse' effort by Mrs. Murdoch, we need to become extra vigilant against both foreign AND DOMESTIC threats against the security of our government's business.
