Californians who are terminally ill will not be able to access drugs with the potential to save or prolong their lives as a result of Gov. Jerry Brown’s veto of the Right to Try Act on Sunday.
AB 159, the California Right to Try Act, passed the state assembly and senate with overwhelming bipartisan support.

It is a well-known fact that the Nation of Iran today has two chief allies, Russia and China.

“..THEN TELL YOUR DICTATOR PRESIDENT HE CAN GO TO HELL ALONG WITH HIS ISIS TERRORIST AND I SHALL MAKE SYRIA TO NOTHING BUT A ‘BIG STALINGRAD’, FOR ERDOĞAN AND HIS SAUDI ALLIES ARE NO VICIOUS THAN ADOLF HITLER,” replied Vladimir Putin in the 2-hour closed door meeting with Turkish emissary. SOURCE
Given its location, resources and religious significance, Saudi Arabia should have developed into one of the world’s great powers: a Norway in the Middle East, perhaps, or a South Korea on the Arabian Peninsula. At the very least, someone at the top should’ve realized the good times wouldn’t last—eventually the oil would run out, superpowers would move on, and the country would have to stand on its own. MORE
