Dr. David Samadi Touched on the Rigors of Prostate Cancer

Mitt Romney, the former Republican presidential nominee, recently decided to go public about his recent prostate cancer surgery involving a slow-growing tumor that had been discovered earlier in the year. This public announcement seems to be a signifier of Mitt Romney’s intention to run for the soon to be vacant Utah Senate seat. The surgery, which was successful, was performed by Dr. Thomas Aherling, at UC Irvine Hospital, which is located in California. In 2017, there were in excess of 160,000 men diagnosed with prostate cancer, and in 2018, that number is expected to increase significantly.

Prostate cancer usually affects men later in life, as 6 in 10 cases are attributed to men aged 65 or older. While cancer can technically strike at practically any age, the cancer is rarely known to affect men before the age of 40. Mitt Romney joins a slew of politicians that have survived the disease, including the former Secretary of State, Colin Powell, as well as John Kerry, who was diagnosed with prostate cancer during his run for the presidential candidacy in 2002.

According to celebrity doctor, David Samadi, when faced with a diagnosis of prostate cancer, there are really only two effective options, of which the results may vary significantly. Due to the magnitude of the diagnosis, Dr. Samadi always chooses to discuss the options with his patients, weighing the pros and cons of undergoing surgery or receiving radiation therapy. He then determines whether the cancer is localized, or has spread to the body, which has a great effect on which option is best for the most effective treatment of the disease. In his professional opinion, surgery is most often the way to go, as it includes a myriad of advantages over radiation therapy, most importantly, an increased likelihood of survival, as well as a longer projection regarding lifespan. Surgery also provides nearly a 100 percent survival rate, whereas radiation can only provide about a 30 percent chance of survival if radiation is chosen first, and cancer has spread beyond the prostate gland.

Dr. David Samadi is a celebrity doctor who holds the titles of Chief of Robotic Surgery, as well as Chairman of Urology at Lenox Hill Hospital, located in Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Dr. Samadi garnered his M.D. from Stony Brook School of Medicine and continued his postgraduate training at Montefiore Medical Center, located in the Bronx, New York.

End Citizens United Endorses Conor Lamb

The Democratic and Republican race is heating up in the 18th Congressional District of southwestern Pennsylvania. Former Congressman Tim Murphy (R) resigned his seat in October 2017 due to improprieties he committed. The Democrats are supporting 33-year-old Conor Lamb and the Republicans are supporting 59-year-old Rich Saccone. The Republicans are receiving campaign backing from President Donald Trump who won the 18th Districts’ votes by a wide margin of 20 percentage points.

In support of Conor Lamb is the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) which is buying campaign ads on TV. The ads are running continuously from January 30, 2018 to March 13th, which is the election day. A Conor Lamb win for the Democrats would mean that the party has a firm footing in this district which has been an industrial Democratic town in past national elections. The reason the historically Democratic 18th District voted for Donald Trump was in hopes that he would stand on his campaign promises to make positive changes for them.

Conor Lamb is a former assistant U.S. attorney, a Marine veteran, and an accomplished speaker whose campaign stumps have drawn large crowds. Mr. Lamb has the grassroot support of the coal and steel labor unions like the AFL-CIO according to fec.gov. Conor Lamb says that he is running for the underserved in the district, which is why he is not accepting corporate monies. Lamb is also campaigning on a stronger economic message, pro-union issues, and against the Trump Administration tax cuts that were recently passed. Rich Saccone’s campaign message is for pro-life choices and even though he says that he supports the area’s labor unions, Saccone has also backed union restrictive resolutions.

Conor Lamb is also receiving campaign endorsements from End Citizens United which is a grassroots group that believes in campaign finance reform to end corporate support in political campaigns in both the House and the Senate. Just to clarify the labor union’s involvement in support of Lamb, he is not accepting union contributions from union executives, instead his union funding is coming straight from the working men and women, the rank-and-file members.

The campaign funding by the DCCC is backed by minimal amounts as are other contributions which are trickling in. The End Citizens United group is raising campaign support for Conor Lamb through their natural grassroots members and donors. End Citizens United has a membership of more than three million donors, with over 3,000 members located in Pennsylvania’s 18th district and over 300,000 members who contribute as little as $12.00 to support candidates.

Adam Milstein Addresses AntiSemitism on the Political Far Left

AntiSemitism in the world’s far rightwing political movements is nothing new. Germany’s Nazi Party and Adolph Hitler took this to the most extreme, but their hatred is not unusual. Many radical rightwing groups express hatred toward Jewish bankers, rave about the Rothschild family and other allegations about Jewish conspiracies. In the United States, the Ku Klux Klan expressed as much hatred of Jews as of African-Americans. More recently, members of a rightwing group The Order murdered Jewish radio talk show host Alan Berg. Berg was apparently killed because he was not only a Jew, but often challenged and angered far rightwingers, especially beliefs held by the Christian Identity movement that Jews were descended from Satan.

However, Adam Milstein points out, antiSemitism is now growing on the far leftwing as well. In his article, Adam Milstein points ot the seeming contradiction. The leftwing generally supports the rights of women and homosexuals. However, they increasingly ignore how radical Muslims treat women and homosexuals, and how they ignore general human rights. There is no freedom of speech in Islamic terrorist organizations.

This may go back to the old warfare principle of how the enemy of your enemy is your friend. During the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union, the Soviet Union supported Arab groups who also opposed the state of Israel, even as the KGB actively suppressed any pro-Islamic activism by Muslim ethnic groups within the U.S.S.R. itself. In the late 1970s, inside Iran, both the leftwing political groups and extremist Muslims opposed the Shah for his friendship with the West. Once the Shah overthrown, however, the government turned against their leftwing allies, as Adam Milstein explains.

During the First Gulf War, Palestinians joined the American antiwar movement. Since then, the more radical Muslims use terror to attack the United States, the more many leftwingers are willing to join with and support them. Adam Milstein writes about the threat this poses not only to Israel and to Jews around the world, but to the very ideals the leftwing claims to support. A victorious radical Islamic movement would be a disaster for women and homosexuals, and for political and religious freedom.
