The U.S. now has three newborns with Zika-related birth defects, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Puerto Rico now has 1,700 confirmed cases of Zika, almost 200 of which are in pregnant women. The warm-weather U.S. territory is in the midst of an epidemic of the mosquito-borne illness. The numbers don’t take into account that 80 per cent of infections are without symptoms, a fact that suggests that the actual number of cases is at least five times higher. Evaluations of blood banks in the island has found that more than one per cent of all units donated carry evidence of the Zika virus. read more

American Survival Radio No. 10

syrian refugees

In this episode of American Survival Radio, Joe and Amy Alton discover that a record number of Syrian refugees have been admitted in the last month to the United States, but not one of them is a Christian, the most persecuted group in the war zone. Why? Plus, more and more medical professionals and scientists are calling to cancel the upcoming Summer Olympics due to concerns about the Zika Virus. Is it a bad idea to have half a million tourists enter the epidemic zone?

Also, wonder what it’s like when a country is on the brink of disintegrations? Just look at Venezuela. The Altons give you a taste of what it’s like when the rule of law approaches non-existence, and what it would take for America to follow suit. Lastly, is taking a moral stand to sit out the 2016 election the right thing for NeverTrumpers, or are they just playing into the hands of those that would accelerate the downward spiral that’s happening right now? read more

Cancel or Move the Olympics

A letter signed by 150 doctors and scientists has called for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro to be moved or delayed due to the Zika virus. Rio is in the heart of the current epidemic.

Calling inaction “irresponsible” and “unethical”, the letter suggests that the Zika virus in Brazil is acting differently than it has in other areas, something I suggested may relate to a mutation in a recent article.

So make it 151 doctors and scientists. In my opinion, sending a half million tourists, not to mention athletes, to the  epicenter of a raging epidemic is, to say least, a bad idea. They’ll come from 170 different countries, get bitten by mosquitoes in Brazil, and head back home to have local mosquitoes spread the poorly-understood virus throughout the world. read more
