  1. For the very first time since the escalator ride, I have to say that I am finally at a position where I 100% opposed what Trump is planning to do here. It is shortsighted and unreasonable. As a 30 year smoker who suffered debilitating chronic bronchitis and breathing issues, I was finally able to quit smoking with the help of vaping. I have had ZERO health problems in the 7 years I have been vaping and smoke free. The recent spate of illnesses is being caused by bootleg THC cartridges being filled with butane, Vitamin E oils and who knows what else. Everyone I know in the vaping community has found their health greatly improved by vaping and banning flavored oils will literally end the industry. No one wants to vape unflavored vapes. Most of us will return to smoking immediately and likely become sick and die from it. This is insane and literally makes me want to scream from the highest rooftops. It is no different from banning guns because people use them incorrectly. I love Trump and support him in everything he does 100% until this.

      • Thank you. I am just gutted over this. I’ve been watching the hysteria unfold and I’ve tried explaining to everyone who will listen what is really happening and they just don’t care. I’m talking about seriously conservative people. They don’t care about me vaping. I am an unperson to them like the left. Just quit-it’s better for you that way – is all I keep hearing. I literally want to pull my hair out so I am just so frustrated to learn this. And they will do it. It has the support of the left. The same people wanting smoking illegal and weed legal want to ban vaping. It’s ridiculous.

        Melania tweeted something about it yesterday. She’s looking at it from a parent who is freaking out like the others. I get that teen vaping is a problem, but I’ve not seen one honest article about the recent illnesses and deaths mentioning the fact that it is THC not standard vaping that is causing the problems.

        I still love Trump and I love Melania and understand they love Barron and are concerned for him and kids like him, but I cannot support this. Yeah of course he still has my support, but I will be really disappointed if he lets this go through. It will be a disaster for the vaping community. I thought he was pro vaping.

          I went to see what they are looking at, as this seems out of character. They are looking at banning flavors other than cigarette flavored, with other flavors being allowed as they are shown to be safe. While still an over-reaction IMO, it is better than an outright ban.

        Bottom line: There is ZERO authority enumerated in the Constitution for the federal government to regulate vaping…or smoking. Therefore:

        1. Congress can amend the Constitution to give the federal government the authority regulate vaping and smoking.

        2. Follow the 10th Amendment: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

The powers enumerated to the federal government are limited and defined…regulating tobacco and vaping is NOT enumerated in the Constitution to the federal government….therefore no law can give the federal government the authority to do so sans amending the Constitution with power given to the federal government to regulate tobacco and vaping,

            Does the FDA exist and do it anyway? You bet. But it is unlawful. And the masses allow it because lawyers & MSM say it’s all correct. The same MSM and lawyers that everybody on this forum declares fake and corrupt have unfettered credibility WRT the Constitution.

      • There have been ZERO reported serious illnesses or deaths related to those using standard reputable devices as directed and well known and respected brands of ejuice. When I first started vaping, it took me a while to learn what worked best and what didn’t work. I will say that the more you are willing to pay for good equipment and product, the better off you are. It is also best to go into a local vape shop and discuss your issues with the people there. They are very well educated in vaping and know their stuff. It’s cheaper to go online, but I ALWAYS go into the shops to support the small business side of things.

        That said, you will have a bad experience with bad equipment, such as mods, tanks or coils, or vaping on wattage too high for certain coils, etc… There are simple ways to make adjustments and the people that work at these places can usually help you, some more than others.

        I have also found that weening yourself down to a lower nicotine strength is also important. I started at like 24 and was having crazy dreams, anxiety, headaches, etc…Every time I’d go to buy new juice, I’d take it down a couple notches. I am now down to 3, which is about as low as its available. I have no issues with it at all.

        I have no problem regulating the industry. I think these high nic concentrations should probably be banned or regulated better, and they have already raised the age to purchase to 21. If they are going to go after flavored vapes then they’d better hit flavored liquor too, because kids are far more likely to drink wine coolers or margaritas than hard liquor, right? It’s just amazing. BTW-35% of talk radio has been talking about the vaping issue and not one single story mentions THC.

      Agreed this is a silly short-sighted idea.

      But it’s not going to stop vaping. Just means that every vaping shop will have an accompanying “flavour” shop opening beside it.

      “Flavour it the way YOU like it” will be the advertising catch. Think they can ban flavouring for heaven’s sakes? Ludicrous.

      But allowing people to do their own “flavouring” is likely to cause more potential health problems than the present status quo.

Just a hit or two gets you through that meeting, class, train ride, plane flight, whatever. Unintended consequence? Kids found out how easily they are used at school, and the buzz they give you and are now fiends running around. I know. My 16 year old is one of them. Can’t sleep, headaches, moody. It’s crazy. I don’t buy the stuff or him, He works, has his own money and gets the stuff himself. Luckily he doesn’t smoke pot and isn’t stupid enough to do the boothleg THC carts, but knows all about them.

        We will all be forced to get our vapes off the black market or go back to smoking. And then you will see far more deaths.

Once a technology became available it was a godsend to many of us who truly wishes to quit but couldn’t give up the enjoyment of smoking.

        Quite odd.

        What is also odd is, if this ban is only on flavored products — which, in my understanding, the nicotine products are not flavored but actually taste like a nicotine cigarette — why are people who are using vape nicotine products (and whose rationale for doing so is health related as in getting the same taste/experience from vaping yet not the detrimental health effects vs. smoking) so upset by this?

      Let me offer an alternative perspective.

      I personally am not opposed to vaping. I think it seems like a better and safer alternative to smoking – in the long term.

      I haven’t spoken about the following to anyone really because I consider it a private family matter but I’m happy to do so here in this context.

      Vaping is a massive problem in today’s Jr. and High Schools. I can say for a FACT based on experience that the flavored e-Juice is being marketed to kids, specifically. Vape pen manufacturers have set a price point making it extraordinarily affordable for teens to get access to these.

      My son got hooked onto vaping and did it for some time before we caught on. We talked to him and dealt with it over the years as we discovered it but he continued to go to very great lengths to hide it from us. He has in the past 3 years developed a persistent, pneumonia-like cough that hasn’t gone away since he (supposedly) quit vaping. We also recently discovered that he also in the past 1.5 years had switched over to THC oil cartridges, which are also flavored. I strongly suggest that most teens who vape will eventually experiment with THC since at high school both e-juice and THC cartridges are illegal for teen purchase and both are available from the same street vendor supply chain. THC cartridges are quite expensive and thus more profitable for the vendors.

      I’m not certain how long he has been doing this but it has sadly led to him becoming a shattered shell of a person compared to what he once was, which we sadly were forced to realize and admit when we compared his 8th grade and senior pictures. Pot in the heyday of the 60’s-70’s led to a mental health crisis. Today’s THC oils are up to 800% more concentrated and so I can not even imagine what kind of public mental health crisis we’re going to be dealing with in the future.

      These companies are very clearly trying to hook a new generation of people. I think vaping is a great alternative to smoking – but removing the flavors will keep young people out of it.

People see cures in almost everything. I have also seen videos where people smoke like sheets of weed condensed in seconds. It would take people really long time to get that much THC in the old days.

        The tabacco cos are simply targeting today’s youth – getting them hooked by way of a new method of distribution.

        There are huge amounts of nicotine in these e-cigs. They should be as heavily regulated as regular cigarettes are when it comes to sales to minors.

          Yep and not all e-juice has nicotine. It seems that many of these kids have heard the warnings about nicotine and are (stupidly, naively) assuming that if they pick e-juice without it that they would be OK.

          Again as I said previously I very strongly suspect that a very strong percentage of teens who vape will at some point experiment with or switch to CBD/THC cartridges. I am suspicious that nearly all, if not all, teens who have been admitted to hospitals for vaping-related illnesses have been vaping pot.

        I’m so sorry to hear about your son chojun. My son just graduated from a public high school and it got so bad in the bathrooms that they put in a state of the art vaping detectors. And as you described, my son explained that many of those young men went on to try the THC oils. At this point it’s still difficult to pinpoint what is causing all of the health problems (it seems to be 2 different things so far), but it would appear that it took quite a few cases of young people being on respirators before they connected the dots to vaping.

        And I completely agree that these companies are aggressively pursuing young people- it’s the best market for them with many decades of more vaping in their futures. So much more money to earn.

        I hope you find some support for you and your family to help deal with your son.

      @freespeechfanatic, I have often wondered the same thing. I for one, will “never forget” how America was duped into believing that the so-called ‘Patriot Act’ was a necessary evil, giving up our Constitutional right to unreasonable search and seizure.. just like that!

      We can *now* see how well the FISC court has done their due diligence, to protect innocent citizens from surveillance. NEVER FORGET.

      That so-called ‘Patriot Act’ was an especially egregious development, given that Hellary, McCain and their cohorts were hanging out with ISIS leaders, training, arming and funding terrorists, while they spied on innocent Americans to otensibly “catch” terrorists? NEVER FORGET.

      I will also “never forget” how we immediately declared war on Iraq, even though those who hijacked the planes were from Saudi Arabia. NEVER FORGET.

      And I will “never forget” that decades-long, “white Ford Bronco chase” to catch (wink wink) Osama Bin Laden, of the royal House of Saud. Barack Hussein Obola inexplicably ended this chase by quickly burying Bin Laden’s body at sea? NEVER FORGET.

      On 9/11/01, more than 3,000 innocent souls were sacrificed as collateral damage to the New World Order. This is never mentioned on any of their solemn televised memorials. NEVER FORGET, because this ongoing mission has *not* been aborted.

      Blacks, though, make up just 42 percent of the city’s population. The disparity is stunning. Reducing that ratio – and violence in general – would improve the lives of countless numbers of Norfolk residents.

      That wide disparity is also true in crime stats statewide.

      Whites comprise 69.5 percent of the population in Virginia and blacks are 20 percent. But among the homicide totals in 2018, blacks comprised 60 percent of the 391 victims.”

      I worked for the gentlemen who developed Chicago’s Sears Tower and, believe me, no one gets a permit to put up a towering structure without a defined plan to take it down sans risk to surrounding buildings. The city doesn’t like it, the architects don’t like it, the insurance companies don’t like it, the financiers don’t like it.

      The moment I saw the way those towers fell, I knew it was a very professional team who designed the collapse. Even the commission deigned to report on this “attack by airplanes” felt they were hushed and rushed to a conclusion that the PTB announced with minutes of the disaster taking place.

    You won’t believe the treatment Cavuto gave Peter Navarro today in a Fox interview

    Interrupted, talked over Navarro incessantly, kept pushing this condescending narrative that the Administration has too many trade battles going on at one time, yada yada yada

    Worth posting a clip when it becomes available, Sundance, if for no other reason than to show the extreme level of disrespect and anti-Trump partisanship on display

    “As our friends at Gun Owners of America pointed out, we know the House Democrats can pass virtually any gun control measure they want.

    The real challenge is to make sure that House Republicans don’t join them. Because if they do, then that will cause Senate Republicans to defect in large numbers.

    And if only 13 GOP Senators turn to the “dark side,” gun control will pass both chambers of Congress.

    We’ve already seen, in recent weeks, Republicans who are usually solid limited government constitutional conservatives, like Dan Crenshaw of Texas, say they might support a “red flag” law.

    Naturally, Democrats want their gun confiscation bills to pass, but if they can’t pass both houses of Congress this time, they will be just as happy to peel off more Republicans, so that next time they are one step closer to being able to implement their anti-constitutional, anti-liberty agenda – which is why we need to keep hammering House Republicans urging them to hold firm.’

  18. President Trump has now
    • Transferred the cost of Interest on our Debt to the Fed
    … which could have been “zero”
    • Boxed in the House Dems for letting the Fed get away with it
    … putting the Future of the Fed in jeopardy
    … inviting the DOJ to Audit the Fed for any insider trading or traitorous action
    • Justified a veto of any Budget that isn’t flat-lined
    … since the Fed’s Debt Interest has used up any room for growth in spending
    • Flipped the “Uncontrolled Spending and Unsustainable Debt” against them all.

    The Trump Tweet destined for immortality:

    And just like that- this mysterious spy- living under his own name near DC (wow the danger is real folks/sarc), now has links to Steele. So his name will be used to try and whitewash the fact that it came from Nellie Ohr and her access to FBI computers…

    Waiting for Sundance’s take on the HUGE SC ruling today.

    It’s particularly HUGE because only 2 of the leftists voted against. To me that means that this is the beginning of the end for these decisions being able to apply nation-wide. Judicial activism is being throttled, and half the leftists on the court have their hands around its throat.

    BIG WINNING!

    That’s my take. Hopefully it’s correct.
