President Trump headed to the G20 Summit and some Americans were glad to see him go. He left behind a contentious pot on the stove bubbling with foreign and domestic issues ready to boil over. The New York Times was about to publish a blockbuster story regarding Trumps eldest son, Donald Jr. It would reveal another brick in the wall of rela-tionships connecting all things Trump to Russian interference in the 2016 pres-idential election. Meanwhile, an all-male committee of 13 Senate Republicans, led by majority leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) con-tinued to meet in secrecy to carpenter together a plan to blow up Obamacare. They sought to replace it with a nation-al health care program only the radical right could love. As Senate Republicans diddled with their plan, North Korea launched mis-siles. The act was in defiance of global efforts to persuade its dictator, Kim Jong Un, to chill out, for Gods sake. In Europe, our allies of 70 years were in doubt about the future leadership of the U.S. in the free world. American foreign policy had its nationalistic facelift on display. Our lone-wolf posture on cli-mate change shattered what was other-wise a global consensus on the threat of climate change to humanity. We turned our back to the world. It was a let them eat weather,Ž moment. Back at home, just prior to the publication of the Times story, Trump Jr. made a preemptive move to come cleanŽ and disclose an unreported meeting last summer with Russian wheeler-dealers. He tweeted out emails dating back to June 2016. They revealed the meet-ings purpose was to discuss an offer of secret Russian government intelligence damaging to Clintons presidential cam-paign. Trump Jr. said he loved the idea and lets do it. Though the NYT unearthed the revelation, Trump Jr. gave himself the credit for the big reveal. But he insisted nothing of practical use was learned. The meeting was, he said with a sniff, a waste of time „ a big fat nothing burger,Ž as his defenders are wont to say. But his assertions did not stick. Topnotch reporting scrubbed the narra-tive of serial falsehoods. Multiple shoes started to drop. Thou doth protest too muchŽ tolled like a bell as the White House and Donald Jr. made lame attempts to cover up. But the truth proved otherwise. Nothing burgerŽ will go down in the lexicon of American slang as political speak for the flagrant lies one tells to cover ones ass and deny the truth. The president, meanwhile, concedes nothing, saying most peopleŽ would have done just as his son did. Never mind patriotic, ethical and/or legal con-siderations and that a foreign, adver-sarial government was the source of the slime. It was, he claims, just your typical opposition research.Ž That this form of political treachery might rise to the level of sedition never crossed his mind „ and he is the guy Americans expect to defend the country from its foes. As all this went down, Sen. McConnell and his committee unveiled the Senate version of the American Health-care Act. It is a dog. It sustains billions in cuts to Medicaid. Millions of the most medically vulnerable would lose their coverage. Costs for older Ameri-can would skyrocket. Coverage of pre-existing conditions would be dumped. JunkŽ policies sold on the cheap would offer little protection. Planned Parent-hood would be axed. Millions of women would be denied reproductive health care services. And thats not even the half of it. The Senate plan failed because it was either too bad for some or not bad enough for others. The legislative process producing it was a debacle „ undemocratic, shameful and dishonest to the core. Its death was deserved because it was, from beginning to end, an indecent proposal; and a complete failure of the most practical kind of politics, the kind Theodore Roosevelt called the politics of decency.Ž The Republican Party and its majority in Congress have surren-dered their claim to political decency. They have surrendered to Trumpism. Trumpism is a throwback to the 1950s and the politics of destruction epitomized by Sen. Joseph McCarthy. McCarthyism met its demise because its namesake was asked a simple question: Have you no sense of decency, sir?Ž It is the question Americans should be asking the purveyors of Trumpism and of Trump himself. There is nothing decent about a health care plan that is designed to inflict cruelty and suffering on poor and middle-class Americans. There nothing decent about the political sabotage of Obamacare, to ignore what needs fixing, putting health coverage at risk for mil-lions of people who have protection for the first time. There is nothing decent about a Congress or Executive Branch that makes a mockery of democratic norms, ethical standards, honesty, integ-rity and the rule of law, lacking both accountability and a modicum of self-control. Its political indecency. Trumpism is not about Republicans versus the Democrats. It is about wrong versus right. Q „ Email Leslie Lilly at and read past blog posts on Tumblr at

Ever since Donald Trumps election, it has been a journalistic trope to specu-late that China is about to take the lead on globalization, climate change and international diplomacy. Knowing his audience, President Xi Jinping has stoked this tripe by mouth-ing all the right cliches in front of the right audiences. He gave a speech at Davos heavy on the theme of openness and promised to help lead globaliza-tion. Any attempt to cut off the flow of capital, technologies, products, indus-tries and people between economies,Ž Xi said, summoning his best Thomas Friedman, is simply not possible.Ž Somehow, China manages the impossible nonetheless. When it comes to information (which Xi omitted from his litany), China cuts itself off from the rest of the world quite adeptly. According to the pro-democracy group Freedom House, China ranks last in the world in internet freedom, behind Iran and Syria. It blocks Google, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter, and jails people for spreading rumors online, i.e., criti-cizing government officials. How about the free flow of capital? China has tight rules against capital out-flows. Technology? China is an expert at stealing it, especially from foreign com-panies operating in China. Products? Despite its membership in the World Trade Organization, China is robustly mercantilist. Brad Setser of the Council on Foreign Relations points out that imported manufactures as a share of the Chinese economy peaked in 2003 and have been falling since. What Xi calls win-win cooperationŽ is the rest of the world opening its markets to China while China refuses to reciprocate. Xi also toes the Davos line on climate change, to the delight of credulous Westerners. Chinas leadership consists of making a pledge as part of the Paris accords to reach peak emissions in 2030 „ a goal consistent with the trajectory of its economy anyway „ and plan-ning to make a mint by selling to the West green technology it has developed through its characteristic unscrupulous means. There is no doubt that China, the worlds second-largest economy, is much more assertive on the internation-al stage than it used to be, but the idea of it as a global leader, or as a responsible power, or even as an admirable country is daft. It props up the lunatic regime in North Korea because it fears the pros-pect of a unified, democratic Korea. It is pushing for control of the South China Sea, ignoring a sweeping ruling by an international tribunal against its claims of sovereignty. It is investing massively in its military „ and not to support the cause of global openness. Clearly, one motive for the dewyeyed press coverage of Chinas purport-ed leadership is a distaste for Donald Trump, who wears his disregard for the global elite on his sleeve. The romance with Xi is a way to tweak him. But, whatever his views on trade or climate change, Trump doesnt run a repressive one-party state. Its perverse to be more comfortable with the president who bans Twitter over the president who uses it indiscriminately. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly OPINION The gun sales bandwagonThat new NRA television ad is a beautiful thing „ the one with the perfectly coiffed Dana Loesch sneering into the cam-era and telling us to fight this violence of lies with the clenched fist of truth. I am the NRA of America, and I am freedoms safest place.Ž Right on, baby! Freedoms safest place is the National Rifle Association. I wish somebody besides Ms. Lo esch, a strident talk-show host and NRA spokes-woman, had told me this earlier. I thought the U.S. Constitution was freedoms safest place.Ž Adam Putnam, Floridas commissioner of agriculture and a Republican gubernatorial candidate, found the ad a beautiful thing, too, but perhaps for different reasons than I. Both of us like guns but I only shoot them. The Department of Agriculture, on the other hand, issues gun permits in Flori-da. Mr. Putnam has fast-tracked 82,000 con-cealed carry permits for National Guards-men and reservists, recently, and aggres-sively promoted the carrying of guns on campus, as well as open carryŽ in the state. (Point of fact: Unless they shoot all the time „ and most of them dont „ National Guardsmen and reservists under pressure probably couldnt hit the broadside of a ter-rorist butt at 25 feet with a handgun.) When a small gaggle of progressives stumbled around Tampa last week com-plaining about the NRA and the ad, which seems to impugn protesting itself as anti-American, Mr. Putnam slapped them with a fast Facebook insult: Classic progressive move,Ž he wrote. Desperate attempt to limit our 2nd Amendment rights.Ž Horsepucky.If Second Amendment rights include joining the NRA advertising campaign to sell more guns, gun products and gun para-noia, then Mr. Putnam is doing a good job defending them. For the first time. The Polk County career politician has never actually held a real job in his adult life, so hawking guns for a huge sales outfit like the NRA marks a new beginning for the man. He entered the Florida legislature at 22 after graduating with a degree in food and resource economics from the University of Florida, where he was a frat boy at Alpha Gamma Rho. He served in Tallahassee until he won the 12th District seat to the U.S. House of Repre-sentatives four years later, in 2001, when he was 26. He then served as a United States congressman in Washington for 10 years before giving up IB (Inside-the-Beltway) to win his seat as commissioner of agriculture in Florida, joining Gov. Rick Scott in the Capitol at the beginning of 2011. But those youthful days in the role of golden boy, a kid playing on the Republican team but not leading it, are almost over. In May, Mr. Putnam announced his candidacy for governor in 2018. On the last day of this month hell turn 43. With 20 years of elected leadership under his belt, apparently he remains too young to figure out the first obvious truth: When it comes to guns and Second Amendment rights, the NRA TV advertisement has noth-ing to do with either. Heres what Ms. Loesch says in the 65-second NRA pitch: They use their media to assassinate real news. They use their schools to teach chil-dren that their president is another Hitler. They use their movie stars and singers and comedy shows and award shows to repeat their narrative over and over again. And then they use their ex-president to endorse the resistance. All to make them march, make them protest, make them scream racism and sexism and xenophobia and homophobia, to smash windows and burn cars, shut down interstates and airports, bully and terrorize the law abiding, until the only option left is for the police to do their jobs and stop the madness. And when that happens, theyll use it as an excuse for their outrage. The only way we stop this, the only way we save our country and our freedom is to fight these violence of lies with the clenched fist of truth. I am the NRA of America, and I am freedoms safest place.Ž Thats just gorgeous. The potent verbs alone stand up and shout like little sol-diers: People who protest assassinate,Ž they scream,Ž they smash,Ž they burn,Ž they shut down,Ž they bully,Ž and they ter-rorize,Ž among other actions, Ms. Lausch claims. Who cares if our founding fathers were protestors? Who cares if Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and before him Chief Joseph of the Nez Perce were protestors? If Thomas Bennett and Desmond Doss, posthumous Medal of Honor winners in Vietnam and at Okinawa „ both conscientious objectors „ were protestors? Who cares if Mahatma Gandhi, the Dalai Lama and (occasionally) the Pope are protestors, even though theyre un-American, the poor fools? Not Mr. Putnam. He never thought of it.As for the Second Amendment, it has nothing to do with gun bunnies wandering through 21st-century college campuses, day care centers, movie theaters, airports, bars, libraries, or government and justice centers. Instead, the venerable Second, modified by the 1791 M ilitia Act, requires white men between 18 and 45 to maintain muskets, powder and ball in case the president has to call them up to put down invasions from across our borders or insurrections from within. Now, 227 years after the Second was ratified, nobody is trying to take our guns away.Ž But some people would prefer not to have wackos with guns walking around peaceful places. Maybe youre one of those people, somebody whod like to feel secure. Maybe Adam Putnam is another. He seems like a nice reasonable guy to me, some of the time. If you are, and if Mr. Putnam is such a person, then I hope you both will recog-nize that climbing on the sales bandwagon for the NRA is probably not how to be secure. Q roger

Why not take a proactive approach to your health and arm yourself with the proper information to manage risks for certain diseases? Knowing your risk fac-tors enables you to make more informed decisions about your health. At Jupiter Medical Center, we are committed to caring for our neighbors when they are sick, and we are equally as dedicated to helping them maintain their overall health and well-being. As part of our portfolio of preventive care services, we offer a variety of medical screenings to help patients understand their personal risk factors for stroke, heart disease, diabetes and more. It is true that there are some risk factors you cannot control, including family history, age, race, gender, hered-ity or whether you have previously experienced a stroke or heart attack. There are other factors that you can manage or control with the help and guidance of your healthcare provider. These include: € High blood pressure€ Smoking€ High cholesterol€ Lack of regular physical activity€ Being overweight or obese€ DiabetesIn order to understand your specific risk factors, you need to know your numbers. Your cholesterol, blood pres-sure, blood sugar and body mass index numbers are key indicators of your risk for serious illness. If you know these important numbers, you can make changes to improve your health and reduce your risk of developing heart disease, diabetes and other serious illnesses. Cholesterol Cholesterol is a fatty substance that our bodies need to function. When there's too much cholesterol in your blood, it can build up on the inside walls of your arteries, and increase your risk of heart disease and stroke. € The normal range for total cholesterol is 180 mg/dL or less. € You also need to know your "good" HDL cholesterol and "bad" LDL choles-terol numbers. € The optimal range for HDL cholesterol is 60 or higher, and LDL choles-terol should be less than 100. High total cholesterol, high LDL, or low HDL may indicate that you are at greater risk for a heart attack or stroke. Blood pressure High blood pressure (hypertension) increases your risk of heart attack, stroke and kidney disease. It also can damage your brain, eyes and arteries. € Your blood pressure goal is 120/80 mmHG or less. Blood sugar (glucose) Glucose is sugar stored in your blood as your body's main source of energy. If your blood sugar is too high or too low, you may have diabetes. Left untreated, diabetes can lead to heart disease, kid-ney disease and other complications. € The goal for blood sugar is less than 130 mg/dL. € The average blood sugar range is between 70 and 130. Body mass index Your body mass index (BMI) measures your weight in relation to your height. That extra weight can lead to high cholesterol, heart disease, diabetes and other serious illnesses. € The BMI goal is less than 25 kg/m2.€ Having a BMI over 25 means that you are overweight and a number over 30 indicates obesity. The first step to preventive care is to undergo a variety of medical screenings to get the information you need to take care of your long-term health. Our goal is to make the screening process as convenient as possible. You can work with our Health & Wellness Patient Navigator to schedule your screenings. Once this is completed, she can help you create a personalized plan to develop a healthier lifestyle. She ll also connect you with our experienced and caring team of professionals and state-of-the-art facilities, as well as our informative wellness programs and classes. We also offer on-the-spot screenings at a variety of community events throughout the year. On Saturday, July 29, we will present the Jupiter Medi-cal Center Health & Wellness Fair at Roger Dean Stadium from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. During the health fair, we will offer a variety of free screenings and risk assessments for a host of diseases and/or conditions. The fair also will feature interactive exhibits and health information, chair yoga demonstrations, games and raffles. Free tickets are available at any of our three Jupiter Medical Center Urgent Care Centers. And dont just come for the fair. Stay to watch the Lakeland Flying Tigers take on the Jupiter Ham-merheads, followed by fireworks after the game. I hope you are able to take advantage of the services available at the fair or that you will visit our Cary Grossman Health & Wellness Center. Remember: The more information you have, the more you can do to stay healthy for years to come.
