Why Extra Virgin Olive Oil Is the Healthiest Fat on Earth

Healthline Nov. 03, 2019 02:18PM EST


Nutrient Composition of Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Extra virgin olive oil is fairly nutritious.

It contains modest amounts of vitamins E and K and plenty of beneficial fatty acids.

One tablespoon (13.5 grams) of olive oil contains the following (1):

Saturated fat: 14%

Monounsaturated fat: 73% (mostly oleic acid)

Vitamin E: 13% of the Daily Value (DV)

Vitamin K: 7% of the DV

Notably, extra virgin olive oil shines in its antioxidant content.

Antioxidants are biologically active, and some of them can help fight serious diseases (2, 3Trusted Source).

The oil's main antioxidants include the anti-inflammatory oleocanthal, as well as oleuropein, a substance that protects LDL (bad) cholesterol from oxidation (4Trusted Source, 5Trusted Source).

Some people have criticized olive oil for having a high omega-6 to omega-3 ratio (over 10:1). However, its total amount of polyunsaturated fats is still relatively low, so this shouldn't be a cause for concern.

Homewreckers: How a Gang of Wall Street Kingpins, Hedge Fund Magnates, Crooked Banks, and Vulture Capitalists Suckered Millions Out of Their Homes and Demolished the American Dream!

From the publisher, In Homewreckers, Glantz recounts the transformation of straightforward lending into a morass of slivered and combined mortgage “products” that could be bought and sold, accompanied by a shift in priorities and a loosening of regulations and laws that made it good business to lend money to those who wouldn’t be able to repay. Among the men who laughed their way to the bank: Trump cabinet members Steve Mnuchin and Wilbur Ross, Trump pal and confidant Tom Barrack, and billionaire Republican cash cow Steve Schwarzman. Homewreckers also brilliantly weaves together the stories of those most ravaged by the housing crisis. The result is an eye-opening expose of the greed that decimated millions and enriched a gluttonous few.

“Lock him up!” –     Donald Trump gets lambasted by New York City crowd during his Veterans Day speech

Bill Palmer | 3:00 pm EST November 11, 2019
Palmer Report » Analysis

Facebook ShareTwitter ShareEmail this articlePrint Article

Donald Trump’s babysitters took him to a World Series game in Washington DC and a UFC fight in New York City, only to find that he got loudly booed at both venues. They then had to take him to an Alabama football game to find a crowd deranged enough to cheer him. Now Trump’s handlers have inexplicably taken him back to New York City for another public appearance. Let’s just say that it isn’t going well for him.

Perhaps Donald Trump’s diaper-changers thought they’d be able to prevent him from getting booed in New York City this time around if they insulated him within a Veterans Day event. But while the crowd was plenty supportive to the veterans and their parade, the crowd was every bit as vicious toward Trump as the traitor deserves.

Everyone from CNN to the AP is reporting that when Donald Trump gave his Veterans Day speech today at Madison Square Park, the crowd loudly booed him, and began chanting “Lock him up!” This is similar to what Trump faced at the World Series. Various people on social media have posted images of the words “Impeach” and “Convict” spelled in giant letters the windows of an apartment building that was within plain view of Trump’s speech.

The polls show that the majority of Americans want Donald Trump impeached and removed from office for his crimes – and this is before the televised impeachment hearings begin this Wednesday. Even as Trump’s presidency circles the drain, a grand jury in New York is in the process of criminally indicting him on state charges. “Lock him up” is indeed on its way to happening.

Let’s call this what it is

Shirley Kennedy | 10:30 am EST November 11, 2019
Palmer Report » Analysis

No one reading this should be surprised that Donald Trump never actually released funds providing military aid to Ukraine. According to HuffPost, the funds were released by the State Department, after their lawyers told Trump his action was illegal. Remember the other day when Richard Shelby of Alabama claimed that what Trump did wasn’t “against the law” or “a crime?” Guess what, Shelby? If something is illegal, then it is very much a crime.

This information comes to light shortly before televised impeachment hearings are set to begin. This doesn’t make Trump look good at all. According to Bloomberg, this information was contained in a classified memo to Mike Pompeo, yet he and others silently stood by and pretended that Trump had done nothing wrong. As HuffPost states, this revelation quashes those claims. All while he tried to claim that he released the funds after a plea from Rob Portman (R-OH), the funds were released in spite of him. He is such a liar.

Mick Mulvaney, who both heads the Office of Budget Management and serves as acting chief of staff, admitted to Trump’s illegal activities and then tried to backpedal, but he never mentioned that it was his office that was charged with releasing these funds and that his office had to be overridden by the State Department. Taylor testified as to this unusual move by deciding “they were going to move forward with this assistance, OMB notwithstanding.” The information goes even further. According to HuffPost, Zelensky had scheduled an interview on CNN in September to announce the launch of the investigation, even though he opposed it, to secure the funding he needed and had been promised. As Eric Swalwell stated, let’s call Trump’s actions what they are: extortion.

Swalwell appeared on “Face the Nation” to discuss impeachment. Swalwell said that the House Intelligence Committee possesses evidence that will show that “President Donald Trump engaged in an extortion scheme to pressure Ukraine” to investigate Joe Biden. According to Swalwell, the testimony to date establishes what he claims, and he further points out that Trump was “using taxpayer dollars” to engage in his extortion. This is beyond belief. Trump is, without a doubt, the most ridiculously criminal person to ever occupy the White House, and he has no problem using our money to commit his crimes. Unbelievable! We have to believe that his comeuppance is near.

Even in the face of Trump’s obviously criminal behavior and activity, Eric Swalwell wants to ensure that Trump receives due process, though he certainly doesn’t deserve it. “It is important that these witnesses raise their right hands and take questions from both Republicans and Democrats. The president is going to get that,” said Swalwell. He continued, “This is America and we don’t just have railroading of justice.” After all Trump has done, Democrats are determined to treat him fairly, as they should. They, like the rest of us, know that they must do everything properly and above board, even when dealing with one who knows nothing of those concepts. That will be the only way to defeat Trump and rid us of the blight called his presidency.

Privilege does strange and unpleasant things to human beings.

Today's Agelbert conspiracy Theory: Trump (in the last couple of days) retweeted a 9/11 commemoration tweet by Bolton in a seemingly irrelevant retweet, it being that it came after a bunch of tweets that had nothing to do with Bolton or 9/11.

I found that curious, so I asked myself, "What does Trump know about Bolton's involvement in 9/11 (i.e. knowledge of that False Flag Attack AND active participation in the Cover up of it) that could be used to witness tamper Bolton into not spilling the Ukraine Extortion beans on Trump? Idle speculation, perhaps. Now it comes out that Trump just made a statement that  "he released the Ukraine funds onSeptember 11, 2019". This is clearly false. BUT, the 9/11 thread is there....
