There’s truly nothing worse than a poorly executed remake of a once-popular film. It can be done with eloquence and tact, as we’ve seen in Christopher Nolan’s series of Batman films, or it can turn to absolute feces a ‘la Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel. Believe me when I tell you that I am in full support of remakes because they give society another chance at enjoying something they loved once more, if done correctly.
In the case of the government shutdown that ended two weeks ago, this is a remake that no one feels should be redone ever again.
Nevertheless, President Donald Trump promised that if Congress cannot come to an agreement and pass seven different spending bills by the end of this week, the government could go right back into a partial government shutdown. Rather than fear the shutdown, we must embrace the possibility and fully recognize why it is such a distinct possibility.
President Trump has demonstrated, on several occasions, his unwavering determination to secure funding to construct a wall along the US-Mexico border. He has said, time and time again, that our Southern border is more dangerous than an IHOP on a Sunday, and yet, his words have fallen on the deaf ears of the Democratic leadership.
For those of you just tuning in, Democrats and Republicans are split on how to handle immigrants attempting to unlawfully enter the United States. The Dems agree that we should protect American citizens from harmful individuals, but from a systemic standpoint, we need to create an easier path to citizenship for those who wish to come to America for a better quality of life.
Republicans, many of which share the sentiment of President Trump, want to strengthen our borders, by any means necessary. According to several sources, the latest disagreement erupting in Congress stems from how to best operate ICE detainment centers.
Democrats insist that we cap the number of detention beds used for interior enforcement to curb ICE’s capacity to capture and detain undocumented immigrants, and Republicans are concerned with this logic.
“There are currently 40, 520 ICE immigration detention beds funded by Congress. Heading into the talks, the White House sought to increase the number to 52,000, while Democrats wanted a reduction to 35,520. Democrats have proposed a 16,500 cap on beds to be used for interior enforcement, with the rest to be used for those captured at the border…”

While the Democrats advocating on behalf of immigrants simply trying to enter the U.S. to escape poverty and harmful living conditions is incredible, we are missing the point here. No matter the side of the aisle you find yourself on, President Trump will act in his best interest.
When he was running for president back in 2016, he promised his supporters that, if elected, he would build the wall we’ve all come to know and discuss. He’s shutdown the federal government once already, and if Congress fails to acquiesce to his demands, there’s not much stopping him from doing so once more.
President Trump, undoubtedly feeling pressure from the 116th Congress, with its Democratic majority in the House of Representatives, told reporters at the White House earlier this month, that “we’re looking at a national emergency because we have a national emergency — just read the papers.”
Sources have pointed out that the Department of Defense has indicated that, if the President does, in fact, institute a national state of emergency, they will invoke the use Title 10 U.S. code to allow the military to construct the border wall. The code referenced by the DOD states:
“In the event of a declaration of war or the declaration by the President of a national emergency in accordance with the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1601 et seq.) that requires use of the armed forces, the Secretary of Defense … may undertake military construction projects, and may authorize the Secretaries of the military departments to undertake military construction projects, not otherwise authorized by law that are necessary to support such use of the armed forces.”

Biotechnology Could Cure It All
Nearly two-thousand years ago, give or take several minutes, Hippocrates taught that human existence was centered around the four elements — earth, water, fire, and air — which in the human body was represented by the four basic humors: blood, phlegm, black bile, yellow bile. Hippocrates explained that each humor was located in a specific organ of the human body and each related to its own personality type — sanguine, phlegmatic, melancholic, and choleric.
‘Therefore, if someone was sick, Hippocrates taught that this indicated an imbalance in one of the four
Suffice to say that the medical field has moved forward since 460 BC, and recently, these advancements have occurred in the biotechnology industry. Though biotech is a relatively new field, it possesses great potential for the future of medicine. One of the more recent breakthroughs in biotech stems from something called pharmacogenomics, or the study of how genetics affect a person’s response to drugs. This new field combines the science of developing drug treatments and research conducted on human genetics and their functions.
According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, most drugs currently available on the market are branded as “one size fits all,”meaning that this specific treatment was created to cure a certain ailment for anyone who takes it. However, as scientists in the pharmacogenomics field are discovering, not everyone reacts the same to certain drugs.
For example, if two individuals are having an allergic reaction and both ingest an anti-histamine, it’s possible that it will help one person feel better, while causing adverse side-effects to the other person. By studying a person’s genetic coding, medical experts are better able to predict how a medication will effect a particular person.
Ironically enough, as new technologies and inventive approaches to curing diseases come to light, medical researchers are discovering new diseases that seek to test all the progress we’ve made thus far. The practices of medicine have taken massive strides over the past few generations through the pioneering of biotechnology research and other incredible advancements, but regardless of these steps forward, it is up to companies in the healthcare industry to responsibly tend to the needs of their patients.
Premier Health Group Inc. (OTC: PHGRF) / (CSE: PHGI) / (6PH.F) is a Canadian publicly traded company strategically poised to take advantage of lucrative business opportunities in the global healthcare industry.

Mueller Investigation Is Almost Ready
A half-witted, know-nothing playwright by the name of William Shakespeare once wrote that “these violent delights have violent ends.” The line, taken from Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, also featured in Westworld, depicts a scene in which Friar Laurence cautions Romeo into falling for Juliet because his love may catalyze his own violent end. I attribute the words of Shakespeare to the current predicament facing President Donald Trump and his administration. In the two or so years since Trump took office, special counsel Robert Mueller has worked without end to investigate whether the Trump administration colluded in any way, shape, or form, with Russia during the 2016 presidential election.
After countless subpoenas and inducements of former Trump associates and administration members, sources indicate that Mueller’s long nights away from the family could soon be over. Towards that end of January, Roger Stone, a former associate of Donald Trump before he became president, was indicted on charges of seeking stolen emails from WikiLeaks that could damage Trump’s opponents during the 2016 presidential election season.
Per the official language of the indictment:
“…After the 2016 U.S. presidential election, the U.S. House of Representatives Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation opened or announced their respective investigations into Russian interference in the 20126 U.S. presidential election…Stone took steps to obstruct these investigations….He made false statements to the HPSCI about his interactions regarding WikiLeaks, and falsely denied possessing records that contained evidence…”
-Robert Stone indictment
The indictment went on to explain that Stone attempted to persuade a witness to provide false testimony and withheld pertinent information from federal investigators. According to several sources, Stone was arrested by the FBI Friday morning while drinking his morning coffee at his home in Florida. Stone’s attorney immediately attempted to defuse any public sentiment stirring up connecting Stone to special counsel Mueller’s investigation, suggesting that Stone’s indictment “focuses on allegedly false statements…made to Congress,” and has nothing to do with Russian collusion.
According to CNN, Attorney General Bill Barr is limbering up in preparation to announce as early as next week the completion of Robert Mueller’s investigation, “with plans for Barr to submit to Congress soon after a summary” of the confidential report is prepared. Interestingly enough, though the details of the report concern both the American people and its presiding government, under special counsel regulations, Mueller must submit his “report” to the attorney general and the law doesn’t require this document to be shared with anyone.
Barr is under no formal obligation to publicly share the report, but I can already assume that members of the Democratic leadership will be banging on his office door until he throws them a bone.
The question on everyone’s mind is, what Mueller discovered in his lengthy investigation. Mueller was appointed to the case on May 17, 2017, and in years following this date, Mueller has had his hands full. Early last week, Mueller’s office filed its sentencing memorandum against Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign manager, who will be sentenced next month in federal district court in the District of Columbia.
“For a decade, Manafort repeatedly violated the law. Considering only the crimes charged in this district, they make plain that Manafort chose to engage in a sophisticated scheme to hide millions of dollars from United States authorities. The sentence in this case must take into account the gravity of this conduct, and serve to both specifically deter Manafort and those who would commit a similar series of crimes.”
–sentencing memo from Robert Mueller
As for the findings of Mueller’s investigation, we will have to wait and see how Attorney General Barr chooses to go about sharing the report, if he ends up sharing the information at all. The information could disturb the Trump presidency and possibly give Democrats grounds for introducing articles of impeachment.
