The owner of the Japanese tanker attacked on Thursday said US reports have provided “false” information about what happened in the Gulf of Oman.

The ship operator said “flying objects” that may have been bullets were the cause of damage to the vessel, rather than mines used by Iranian forces, as the US has suggested.

Yutaka Katada, chief executive of the Japanese company operating the ship calledKokuka Courageous, one of two vessels attacked near the Strait of Hormuz on Thursday, said the damage could not have been caused by mines or torpedos that are shot underwater, since the damage was reportedly above the ship’s waterline.

“It seems that something flew towards them. That created the hole, is the report I’ve received,” Mr Katada said at a press conference in Tokyo on Friday, the Financial Times reported....

Well, at least we know who the enemy of the Constitution of the United States is. Surely no actual American patriot can support him now. Surely.

President Trump on Sunday floated the possibility of staying in office longer than two terms, suggesting in a morning tweet that his supporters might “demand that I stay longer.”

The president, who will kick off his reelection campaign on Tuesday with an event in Orlando, has previously joked about serving more than two terms, including at an event in April, when he told a crowd that he might remain in the Oval Office “at least for 10 or 14 years.”

The 22nd Amendment of the Constitution limits the presidency to two terms.

In tweets Sunday morning, Trump also voiced dissatisfaction with recent news coverage of his administration, calling both The Washington Post and the New York Times “the Enemy of the People.”

I guess that's him projecting again, saying he's 'the enemy of the people' :lol:

This is a lot of generational violence. No wonder he was beloved by Trump.

 

Quote

In the months that he has served as President Trump’s acting secretary of defense, Patrick Shanahan has worked to keep domestic violence incidents within his family private. His wife was arrested after punching him in the face, and his son was arrested after a separate incident in which he hit his mother with a baseball bat. Public disclosure of the nearly decade-old episodes would re-traumatize his young adult children, Shanahan said.

On Tuesday, Trump announced in a tweet that Shanahan would not be going through with the nomination process — which had been delayed by an unusually lengthy FBI background check — “so that he can devote more time to his family.”

Shanahan spoke publicly about the incidents in interviews with The Washington Post on Monday and Tuesday.

“Bad things can happen to good families . . . and this is a tragedy, really,” Shanahan said. Dredging up the episode publicly, he said, “will ruin my son’s life.”

In November 2011, Shanahan rushed to defend his then-17-year-old son, William Shanahan, in the days after the teenager brutally beat his mother. The attack had left Patrick Shanahan’s ex-wife unconscious in a pool of blood, her skull fractured and with internal injuries that required surgery, according to court and police records.

 

Two weeks later, Shanahan sent his ex-wife’s brother a memo arguing that his son had acted in self-defense.

“Use of a baseball bat in self-defense will likely be viewed as an imbalance of force,” Shanahan wrote. “However, Will’s mother harassed him for nearly three hours before the incident.”

Details of the incidents have started to emerge in media reports about his nomination, including a USA Today report Tuesday about the punching incident in 2010.

In an hour-long interview Monday night at his apartment in Virginia, Shanahan, who has been responding to questions from The Post about the incidents since January, said he wrote the memo in the hours after his son’s attack, before he knew the full extent of his ex-wife’s injuries. He said that it was to prepare for his son’s initial court appearance and that he never intended for anyone other than his son’s attorneys to read it.

 

Defend it. I dare you.

On day one of his 2020 campaign, Trump promised to cure cancer, wipe out AIDS, and put an American on Mars

 

First, you have to believe in science and hire scientists to do scientific jobs, fucking moron.

 

Quote

He told cheering supporters: "We will push onward with new medical frontiers. We will come up with the cures to many, many problems, to many, many diseases — including cancer and others and we're getting closer all the time."

"We will eradicate AIDS in America once and for all and we're very close. We will lay the foundation for landing American astronauts on the surface of Mars."

Most of the Trump's speech in the 20,000 capacity stadium was devoted to attacking familiar enemies, including Hilary Clinton, Democrats, and the "fake news" media. (NOTE: Hilary Clinton is not running.)

Drugmaker Pfizer gave $1 million to help finance Trump's inauguration, according to documents filed with the U.S. Federal Election Commission. Amgen, another pharmaceutical company, donated $500,000. Health insurers Anthem, Centene and Aetna all gave six-figure contributions.

 

Drug companies worldwide don't want to find a "cure" for cancer as it's a cash cow.

We've all lost friends and family to cancer and these firms play on our emotions.

As far as I remember, all the TV adverts claim that they're close to finding a cure. Been saying that forever.

A friend of mine from high school used to work on cancer research for the American Association for Cancer Research. They made huge strides back in the early 2000s that she would tell me about, especially concerning the use of photosensitizers to treat cancer. 

 

Sadly she died in 2005, so I don’t have any current insider info, but while the pharmaceutical industry may indeed care more about the bottom line, there are other organizations carrying on with this work.

Probably not as big a cash cow as being the firm that patents the cure for cancer though

Obviously I'm not a medical man and this could have it's own thread, but I don't think there is a cure.  Maybe prevention though.

I think it's probaly the lifestyle that we lead these days that has caused the illness to multiply.

In my opinion food probably has a big part to play, we are consuming lots of chemicals and additives that we weren't decades ago.

But even if the cause was found, I'm sure the drug companies would put a spin on it to keep their sales going.

Novartis has a trial going that involves genotyping the cancer in the bloodstream and then genetically modifying the sample to make it attack itself  (or something similar) and reinjecting it into the patient to cure the cancer. It will be a hefty price, but it exists...without the help of Trump.
