Baltimore Terror plot thwarted!! -1000 gallons of ……

September 9, 2019

1000 gallons of gas?

Who knew that POTUS Trump was going to be there?

 

BREAKING: Van Filled With 1,000 Gallons of Gasoline Found in Downtown Baltimore Parking Structure Ahead of Trump’s Visit

A large area of downtown Baltimore was evacuated on Monday after a van filled with 1,000 gallons of gasoline was found in a parking garage — just days before President Donald Trump is scheduled to visit the city.

President Trump will be attending the 2019 House Republican Conference Member Retreat in the city on Thursday, less than one mile from where the van was found.

Police have confirmed that there was no bomb inside the vehicle.

A search by a police robot turned up a device used for stealing diesel fuel.

 

Police were called to the parking garage of 100 E. Pratt St., where the T. Rowe Price office is, around 11 a.m. on Monday morning about the suspicious vehicle.

“After several hours of investigating a suspicious vehicle, no bomb was detected,” Baltimore Mayor Bernard C. “Jack” Young tweeted. “We are currently in the process of conducting precautionary sweeps in an effort to ensure public safety. These sweeps are expected to take several hours.”

Mayor Young asked that people remain outside the evacuated area and find alternate transportation to get home. He said that he will send out an update when people are able to pick up their vehicles.

 

No motive or explanation for the vehicle has been announced at this time.

The city police are being assisted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

 

 


Antifa is a terror organization and Malia Obama attends their meetings – FBI SURVEILLANCE

August 12, 2019

 

FBI SURVEILLANCE- MALIA OBAMA SEEN LEAVING ANTIFA MEETING IN BALTIMORE

Image

Since the possibility of Antifa being declared a terrorist organization has been suggested, the FBI has become proactive with their treatment of the notorious group. They’ve been keeping a close eye on suspected names on Antifa membership rolls, tapping phones, questioning on the street, and conducting surveillance operations at their regular weekly meetings.

At one such meeting in Baltimore, last Sunday, a very familiar face to all Americans was seen leaving the premises – Malia Obama, eldest daughter of former president, Barack Hussein Obama.

This still from 9/11surveillance video has no relation to this story but displaying it might hold your attention, so here it is.
The FBI report states that Antifa meetings had been held in the Mason’s Hall in downtown Baltimore every weekend for the past year and had increased in frequency since President Trump’s disparaging remarks about the city a couple of weeks ago.

The group was easily identified as an Antifa Klan by their vocal opposition to our president as well as things like their clothing – “F**k Trump” shirts being commonly worn by all. Who but Antifa would wear such a thing?

 

The FBI refused to comment in detail about their discovery of the Obama child in membership but did provide a short statement to the press. Special Agent Esteban Contreras spoke:

“We have been keeping an eye on this group for months. They’re troublemakers. You can tell. They have nothing good to say about Trump and organize policy protests regularly.

I can confirm that Malia Obama was seen amongst the group and that she has attended at least three meetings. I will not, however, speculate on details of her involvement in terrorist activities at this time.”

This news will come as quite a blow to the Obama family as it exposes more of their terrorist activity to the world. It will be interesting to see how they and the Democrat Party try to spin it.

‘President gave $16B in 2018 ALONE to Elijah Cummings’s district in federal grants’: Donald Trump’s aide Lynne Patton asks what Baltimore has done with its financial help as POTUS’ row with ‘rat-infested’ city escalates

An aide to President Trump said that the Baltimore region has squandered billions of dollars in federal grants given by the administration.
‘President Trump has given $16billion in 2018 alone to Elijah Cummings’ district in federal grants,’ Lynne Patton, a regional administrator with the Department of Housing and Urban Development, told Fox News on Monday.
‘We have given more money in homeless funds to Baltimore than the last administration’ as well as ‘community development grants,’ according to Patton.
She then took Cummings and the city leadership, including Mayor Bernard Young, to task, asking: ‘What are you actually doing with the money so that it benefits residents in the community for once instead of deep-pocket, crooked politicians?’

Cummings’ district received just under $15.7billion in grants, benefits, and other aide from the federal government during fiscal year 2018, according to the Baltimore Sun.
The district, which includes just over half of Baltimore City, most of the majority African American areas of Baltimore County, and most of Howard County, is more well off than the administration claims.
The district is the second-wealthiest majority-black district in the country, with a $58,000 median household income, according to data journalist Nate Silver of FiveThirtyEight.com.
Silver cited data from the Biggest US Cities web site.
Patton was appointed to her current position after she helped run Eric Trump’s charity foundation and spent eight years working closely Trump family members.
Patton oversaw millions of dollars as a vice president at the Eric Trump Foundation, a charity effort Eric Trump suspended after his dad won the White House.
She forged close friendships and bonds with Trump family members in a variety of roles – and cut a 5 minute video during the campaign that passionately defended Donald Trump from ‘repeated and reprehensible’ attempts to connect him to ‘hate-mongering groups.’

Sharpton says Trump ‘like a child’ following Baltimore remarks
Her comments are the latest salvo in the days long simmering feud between the president and his supporters on one side and Democratic Party officials and backers on the other.
Trump in recent days has singled out Cummings, the Democratic congressman who heads the House Oversight Committee, for what he claims are decrepit conditions in Maryland’s seventh congressional district which he represents.
The district encompasses half of Baltimore as well as surrounding suburbs.
The president has been slammed by critics for racism after he referred to Baltimore as ‘a rodent infested mess’ where ‘no human being’ would want to live.
Trump has attacked Cummings, whose committee is investigating the administration.
On Monday, the president continued to post critical tweets of Cummings.
‘Elijah Cummings never even went to the Southern Border and then he screams at the very good people who, despite Congresses [sic] failure to fix the Loopholes and Asylum, make it work (crossings are way down and the Wall is being built),’ the president tweeted on Monday.
‘Even with zero Dem help, Border getting strong!’

Baltimore Mayor slams Trump’s tweets about his city
Trump was referring to a House Oversight Committee hearing from earlier this month during which Cummings grilled Kevin McAleenan, the acting homeland security secretary, over conditions at migrant detention centers near the southern border.
Trump then tweeted: ‘Baltimore’s numbers are the worst in the United States on Crime and the Economy.
‘Billions of dollars have been pumped in over the years, but to no avail.
‘The money was stolen or wasted. Ask Elijah Cummings where it went.
‘He should investigate himself with his Oversight Committee!’
Trump then tweeted a quote by Kimberly Klacik, a Republican and Baltimore resident.
‘I don’t know what it’s going to take,’ the quote read.
‘A lot of Democratic run cities all over America look like this, it’s not just Baltimore, unfortunately.’
Trump then tweeted: ‘Remember, Vote for Trump, what the h…. do you have to lose? Best unemployment numbers!’
The president aimed that remark at African American voters, most of whom traditionally support Democrats.
The row over Baltimore has also embroiled the Rev. Al Sharpton, the former civil rights leader who is now a commentator on the left-leaning cable network MSNBC.
Trump and Sharpton engaged in a war of words on Monday with the president claiming he hates ‘whites & cops’ while the famed black activist arrived in Baltimore to defend Cummings and charge Trump with having ‘a particular venom for blacks and people of color.’
Trump went the attack after Sharpton tweeted he was on his way to Baltimore to defend the Democratic lawmaker after the president lashed out against him.
‘I have known Al for 25 years. Went to fights with him & Don King, always got along well. He ‘loved Trump!’ He would ask me for favors often. Al is a con man, a troublemaker, always looking for a score. Just doing his thing. Must have intimidated Comcast/NBC. Hates Whites & Cops!,’ the president tweeted.
His attack came shortly before Sharpton hosted a press conference in Baltimore with former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele, an African American politician who also served as lieutenant governor of Maryland.
‘He attacks everybody. I know Donald Trump. He’s not mature enough to take criticism. He’s like a child,’ Sharpton said at the event.
‘But he has a particular venom for blacks and people of color. He doesn’t refer to any of his other opponents or critics as ‘infested.’ He does not attack their districts. He attacks Nancy Pelosi. He attacks Chuck Schumer. He attacks other whites but never said their districts or states are places no human being wants to live,’ he added.
The report alleges that Trump's inauguration committee chairman Tom Barrack sought to benefit from pushing the president to make a plan with Saudi Arabia to build nuclear power plants

The report alleges that Trump’s inauguration committee chairman Tom Barrack sought to benefit from pushing the president to make a plan with Saudi Arabia to build nuclear power plants
In an early morning Twitter rant, Trump raged against Sharpton, Cummings and ‘the radical left ‘squad” – a group of minority Democratic lawmakers made up of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley.
The president also claimed Sharpton apologized to him during a Trump Tower visit during the 2016 presidential election.
‘Al Sharpton would always ask me to go to his events. He would say, ‘it’s a personal favor to me.’ Seldom, but sometimes, I would go. It was fine. He came to my office in T.T. during the presidential campaign to apologize for the way he was talking about me. Just a conman at work!,’ the president tweeted.
Trump did not specify what Sharpton apologized for but the activist was critical of Trump’s campaign, telling Politico at the time that the Republican nominee had a ‘complete disregard and disrespect for addressing’ black voters and their issues.
Sharpton responded to the early morning attack with a tweet of his own, sharing a photo from 2006 featuring him, Trump, the Rev. Jesse Jackson and singer James Brown.
‘Trump at NAN Convention 2006 telling James Brown and Jesse Jackson why he respects my work. Different tune now,’ he wrote.
He later tweeted: ‘Trump says I’m a troublemaker & con man. I do make trouble for bigots. If he really thought I was a con man he would want me in his cabinet.’
And Sharpton told MSNBC Monday morning that ‘I intend to make trouble every time racists and bigots move around in any way shape or form, including the president.’
Cummings, meanwhile, appears to be undeterred by Trump’s attacks.
Earlier on Monday, the Maryland rep released a congressional report Monday accusing Donald Trump’s inauguration committee chairman of trying to financially benefit from pushing Trump to strike a deal with Saudi Arabia.
The Democrat representative’s release of the staff report for the Oversight Committee regarding Tom Barrack is another escalation in his feud with the president.
The report also comes on the same day The New York Times published an article on the continued efforts from federal investigators looking into Barrack’s foreign contacts and how they may have influenced Trump’s campaign, transition and early administration.
‘Today’s report reveals new and extensive evidence that corroborates Committee whistle-blowers and exposes how corporate and foreign interests are using their unique access to advocate for the transfer of U.S. nuclear technology to Saudi Arabia,’ Cummings said of the new information.
According to the 50-page report, Barrack, a billionaire ally of Trump, pursued a plan to buy Westinghouse Electric Corp at the same time he was trying to convince the president to make him a special envoy to promote the firm building nuclear power plants in Saudi Arabia.
Trump sent several tweets attacking the Oversight chairman and the city he represents in Congress

Barrack failed to acquire Westinghouse and also failed in lobbying to become a special envoy for Trump. The report, however, reveals evidence that foreign interests were able to gain access to Trump through his allies and senior members of his administration.
‘These new documents raise serious questions about whether the White House is willing to place the potential profits of the President’s friends above the national security of the American people and the universal objective of preventing the spread of nuclear weapons,’ the report read.
According to the report, it relied on 60,000 documents and several statements from whistle blowers within the administration.
The report comes while several other investigations into Trump’s administration continue, even though Robert Mueller closed the special counsel’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential elections.
There are concerns from multiple House committees over foreign entities’ abilities to influence this administration.
The Times report showed that federal investigators already looked into whether Barrack allowed Persian Gulf contacts to edit the language of a speech Trump delivered on the campaign trail.
Barrack was coordinating with his contacts, which included Emirati businessman Rashid al-Malik, to draft an energy policy speech Trump was preparing to give in May 2016. Al-Malik is close with United Arab Emirates rulers.
Paul Manafort, Trump’s 2016 campaign Chairman, emailed Barrack to ask if he was running the speech by ‘our friends,’ in reference to these contacts in the Persian Gulf.
‘Are you running this by our friends?’ Manafort asked Barrack in a previously undisclosed email, the Times reported.
Manafort’s real estate and investment firm conducts business in the Middle East. The former Trump campaign chairman is now a convicted felon.

Baltimore’s a mess and rat infested – Industrial fail -Mayor (Scandal-Plagued Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh)

It’s a mess

 

‘Rat Film’ highlights Baltimore’s rat warfare, urban planning failures

 

It started with a rat trapped inside Theo Anthony’s outdoor trash can.

“Absolutely, what you see is really how it came about,” the Baltimore-based filmmaker says of his first documentary feature, “Rat Film,” which opens Friday in Baltimore, New York and Chicago. “I had come home one night, and I heard this sound in my trash can. So I whipped out my cellphone and just started filming.”

 

That brief footage, of the trapped rat desperately trying to jump a few inches higher than conventional wisdom says a rat should be able to jump, kicks off an 80-minute rumination on Baltimore’s decades-long battle against its unwelcome rodent population, and some disturbing parallels Anthony discovered with the ways city leaders have tried to deal with various urban situations.

As the media and Democratic Party tries to portray President Donald Trump’s tweets about Baltimore as racist, a resurfaced clip from last year shows Democratic Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh complaining about the poor conditions in part of the city, specifically “rats” and “dead animals.”

 

Pugh made the remarks during a Fox 45 segment while touring a Baltimore neighborhood that was supposed to highlight her “violence-reduction initiative.”

As Pugh toured the neighborhood, she said: “What the hell? We should just take all this sh*t down. … Whoa, you can smell the rats. … Whew, Jesus. … Oh, my God, you can smell the dead animals.”

Maryland – Charles Whittington, a well adjusted Iraq war veteran is barred from the Community College of Baltimore County

January 5, 2011

Iraq veteran no longer wants to return to CCBC after he was barred for essay on killing

This is what happens when this society turns on it’s own.

These idiots don’t understand that controlling oneself is part of the process to maturity.  Progressives and liberals don’t like that.  They have no self control.  Yet, THESE weaklings, these fiberless inhumane persons are the MAJORITY?  These are the same people that have no courage to stand beside their wives or parents who become ill and require HUMANITY of them.  These spineless individuals are the same people that believe that children should be EXPOSED to all sorts of fecal material, because they don’t have the fortitude to DISCRIMINATE against EVIL.

Be careful what you say, because these people will judge you insane and throw away the key.

They are the insane.  But go tell them that.

These people will not take away your first amendment, but they will judge and DISCRIMINATE against YOU, because it’s EASY.  They won’t take away your RIGHT to speech, but they will make you out to be crazy and fire you from your job.  They will sight that you are a threat, when you have DONE nothing of the kind.

This is what you’ll get for honesty.  EXCOMMUNICATION!

THESE low life are the terrorists.  Along with the MUSLIMS.  They are seditious.  The make the bed for it.

Charles Whittington says he is fed up after college told him he did not provide requested psychological evaluation

An Iraq war veteran who was barred from the Community College of Baltimore County after publishing a provocative essay on killing says he no longer wants to return to the Catonsville campus.

Charles Whittington, a Baltimore resident, says he provided the psychological evaluation requested by college officials as a condition for letting him return. But in a Dec. 27 letter to Whittington, the college’s vice president of enrollment management said the evaluation was “not the documentation that was requested” and that the proper records had to be mailed by a “mental health professional.”

The letter from Richard Lilley said that if Whittington does not respond to the request for more complete records by Jan. 15, “we will assume that you have made the decision not to return to CCBC.”

Whittington said he has decided not to resume his studies at CCBC because he is fed up with the college’s requests. “I’ve done everything they asked me to do,” he said. “And now, they want more.”

Veteran barred from campus

Charles Whittington

 

The standoff began after Whittington published his essay, “War is a Drug,” in the Oct. 26 edition of the campus newspaper. The piece, which graphically described his fixation on killing enemy soldiers, raised concerns for college officials. He called war a drug and wrote that killing “is something that I do not just want but something I really need so I can feel like myself.”

At first, Whittington said he hoped to return to the college and would provide the requested psychological evaluation. He obtained his last Department of Veterans Affairs psychological progress report from May and a friend dropped it off to the college in late December.

President Sandra Kurtinitis said the college wants a fresh and complete psychological evaluation and that college officials thought they had made that clear to Whittington.

“We hoped the whole situation could be resolved quickly,” Kurtinitis said. “As much as this has pained Mr. Whittington, we still would hope that there’s a good way to resolve this that is respectful of him.”

Kurtinitis said the college has not received a response to the Dec. 27 letter and could still welcome Whittington back if he provides the requested evaluation. She said the college could also help Whittington pursue his education elsewhere.

“We would like to be helpful either way,” she said.

Deborah O’Doherty, a member of the nonprofit American War Mothers who has advised Whittington, said he has seemed unusually depressed lately.

“He shouldn’t have had to do this in the first place,” she said of the college’s demand for Whittington’s psychological records. “And now they want to change the rules. This is getting a bit extreme.”

Whittington’s last VA report, which he obtained Dec. 9 and shared with The Baltimore Sun, describes him as cooperative, pleasant, realistic and goal-oriented. It says he suffers from depression, inability to sleep and post-traumatic stress disorder, but shows no signs of suicidal or homicidal ideation.

Whittington was deployed to Iraq in late 2006 and said he left in early 2008 after a roadside explosion left him unconscious for days. The former petroleum specialist and infantryman received a medical discharge from the Army in August 2008.

On Dec. 22, O’Doherty dropped off a copy of the psychological progress report at the community college. Lilley sent his response five days later and attached a waiver form that Whittington could sign, allowing the college to request all of his medical and psychological evaluations from 2005 to the present.

“Once this document is accepted,” Lilley wrote, “you may be able to complete your Fall 2010 coursework on campus as well as register for Spring 2011.”

Kurtinitis said that, in fact, the college does not need all of Whittington’s records dating to 2005 and would accept a fresh psychological evaluation from a licensed counselor.

In the letter, Lilley noted that Whittington had not taken the college up on its offer to help him complete his fall 2010 classes online. Whittington says it seemed impractical to complete two art classes via computer and that his frustration with the college sapped his desire to complete an English class.

Lilley said that if Whittington does not respond by Jan. 15, the college will give him copies of his academic transcript and will refund the money paid by the VA for his fall 2010 tuition and fees.

“Allow me to say that in spite of appearances,” Lilley wrote, “we at CCBC wish you well in your academic endeavors whether here or elsewhere.”

Whittington said he is contemplating legal action against CCBC and that he will try to continue his education this semester, possibly at Anne Arundel Community College or a vocational school.

THE ESSAY-

Veteran’s essay on killing

November 21, 2010

The following is the essay that Iraq war veteran Charles Whittington wrote for his English class at the Community College of Baltimore County. It was published in the campus newspaper Oct. 26:

War is a drug. When soldiers enter the military from day one, they begin to train and are brain washed to fight and to handle situations in battle. We train and train for combat, and then when we actually go to war, it is reality and worse than what we have trained for. We suffer through different kinds of situations. The Army never taught how to deal with our stress and addictions.

War is a drug because when soldiers are in the Infantry, like me, they get used to everything, and fast. I got used to killing and after a while it became something I really had to do. Killing becomes a drug, and it is really addictive. I had a really hard time with this problem when I returned to the United States, because turning this addiction off was impossible. It is not like I have a switch I can just turn off. To this day, I still feel the addictions running through my blood and throughout my body, but now I know how to keep myself composed and keep order in myself, my mind. War does things to me that are so hard to explain to someone that does not go through everything that I went through. That’s part of the reason why I want to go back to war so badly, because of this addiction.

Over in Iraq and Afghanistan killing becomes a habit, a way of life, a drug to me and to other soldiers like me who need to feel like we can survive off of it. It is something that I do not just want, but something I really need so I can feel like myself. Killing a man and looking into his eyes, I see his soul draining from his body; I am taking away his life for the harm he has caused me, my family, my country.

Killing is a drug to me and has been ever since the first time I have killed someone. At first, it was weird and felt wrong, but by the time of the third and fourth killing it feels so natural. It feels like I could do this for the rest of my life and it makes me happy.

There are several addictions in war, but this one is mine. This is what I was trained to do and now I cannot get rid of it; it will be with me for the rest of my life and hurts me that I cannot go back to war and kill again, because I would love too. When I stick my blade through his stomach or his ribs or slice his throat it’s a feeling that I cannot explain, but feels so good to me, and I become addicted to seeing and acting out this act of hate, and violence against the rag heads that hurt our country. Terrorists will have nowhere to hide because there are hundreds of thousands of soldiers like me who feel like me and want their revenge as well.

Hispanic convert to ISLAM chooses terrorism as a way to achieve piety

December 8, 2010

Latinos, are targeted to become terrorist by the Muslims, because the Muslim know that the Hispanic population has favorable discrimination.  Islam is opportunistic.  Terrorists focus on groups that are marginal and give them “opportunities” :  Just like the Democrats focus on the “underprivileged?”  And who are these wretches — the UNDERPRIVILEGED ?

All Muslims are not terrorists but most of the worlds terrorists are Muslims.

Lets begin the dialogue with the following:

End political correctness, it’s political brainwashing.  The abuse of power by the politicians charged with the protection of this country.

End to the association of  United Nations who backs Islam and atrocities that they foment.

Trying terrorists in civil court is stupid.  What rights should we allow terrorists?  Why should terrorist “have the RIGHT to remain silent?”

Profile everyone at airports the way Israel does.  Have each state and airline follow a similar guideline.

Stop apologizing for the U.S. We have nothing to apologize for.  The only thing that the politicians here NEED to make amends for is their seditious actions.  Some have behaved Treasonously.

Let’s allow the American people to know the truth.  The duplicity to this country has not served or boded well.

It’s time to learn from Israel and do what is successful, regarding their intelligence and security measures.

Arrest Made in Failed Maryland Bomb Plot

(Dec. 8) — A 21-year-old Baltimore man who had recently converted to Islam has been arrested on suspicion of plotting to bomb a Maryland military recruitment center, authorities said.

Antonio Martinez, also known as Muhammad Hussein, was charged with the attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction and the attempted murder of federal officials. He appeared today in federal court and was ordered held without bail until a hearing set for Monday.

Antonio Martinez

Antonio Martinez, also known as Muhammad Hussain, allegedly tried to blow up a military recruitment center in Catonsville, Md., with a fake bomb supplied by undercover FBI agents.

Federal prosecutors say Martinez, a naturalized U.S. citizen who works in construction, tried to use a car bomb to blow up an armed forces recruitment center in Catonsville, Md.

But the device he alleged tried to detonate was fake — one of several defective bombs given to him by undercover FBI agents, who set up Martinez in a sting, said Marcia Murphy, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

“There was no actual danger to the public as the explosives were inert and the suspect had been carefully monitored by law enforcement for months,” she said.

Authorities say there is no evidence to suggest Martinez was involved in the recent shootings at military recruitment centers in the Washington, D.C., area.

Martinez is the second young man charged in recent weeks with plotting a terror attack. A Somali-born teenager was arrested the day after Thanksgiving after he allegedly tried to blow up a van near a Christmas tree-lighting ceremony in Portland, Ore. Authorities said undercover agents had supplied Mohamed Osman Mohamud, 19, with fake explosives.

Catonsville made headlines in 1968 as well, when nine Catholic activists broke into a military center in the city and burned draft files to protest the Vietnam War. The “Catonsville Nine,”‘ as the activists were known, included two Catholic priests — brothers Daniel and Philip Berrigan.

Vitamin D – Blacks are less likely to suffer fatal strokes when there is a Vitamin D deficiency.

November 16, 2010

Deficiencies of vitamin D are serious.  All vitamin deficiency is serious.

I remember reading somewhere that in some European countries (maybe Netherlands or Holland?) that they used to give vitamin supplements to school kids.  They knew that we were in need of additional vitamins for many years.  They still recommend the same thing.  Yet the pharmaceutical companies and scientist that work for them push many other things and, in my opinion, CREATE the inevitable need for THEIR drugs, because they WANT these ailments around.  There should be more education related to ones own body and health.  Yet this EDUCATION is not compulsory, but the rap music and pop culture has made IT’S way in to the school yard.

I don’t write a medical blog.  I’m not a doctor.  The reason I post SOME medical info is ONLY because it’s of interest to ME.  ME, as a mother, a daughter to an aging mother (who survived the Holocaust and was born with a congenital kidney), and a human being that wants to do what I can for my own health.

 

 

 

Let me paint a picture:  A 78-year old woman, tired and bent. She's lost an inch and a half of her original height because of collapse of several vertebra in her spine over the years, leaving her with a "dowager's hump," a stooped position that many older women assume with advanced osteoporosis. It's also left her with chronic back pain. This poor woman also has arthritis in her knees, hips, and spine. All three locations add to her pain.   She also has hypertension, a high blood sugar approaching diabetes, and distortions of cholesterol values, including a low HDL and high triglycerides.   Look inside: On a simple x-ray, we see that the bones of her body are unusually transparent, with just a thin rim of bone at the outer edges, depleted of calcium. Weight-bearing bones like the spine, hips, and knees have eroded and collapsed.   On an echocardiogram of her heart (ultrasound), she has dense calcium surrounding her mitral valve ("mitral anular calcium"), a finding that rarely impairs the valve itself but is a marker for heightened potential for heart attack and other adverse events. Her aortic valve, another of the four heart valves, is also loaded with calcium. In the aortic valve, unlike the mitral valve, the collection of calcium makes the valve struggle to open, causing a murmur. The valve is rigid and can barely open to less than half of its original opening width.   If a heart scan were performed, we'd see the coronary calcification, along with calcification of the aorta, and the mitral and aortic valves.   Obviously, it's not a pretty picture. It is, however, a typical snapshot of an average 78-year old woman, or any other elderly man or woman, for that matter.   This collection of arthritis, osteoporosis, coronary and valve calcification, high blood pressure, abnormal cholesterol patterns, and pain is not unusual by any stretch. Perhaps you even recognize someone you know in this description. Perhaps it's you.   Look at this list again. Does it seem familiar? I'd say that the common factor that ties these seemingly unrelated conditions together is chronic and severe deficiency of vitamin D. Vitamin D deficiency leads to arthritis, osteoporosis, coronary and valve calcification, high blood pressure, abnormal cholesterol patterns, and pain.

Vitamin-D deficiency linked to fatal stroke in whites but not blacks:

 

November 15, 2010 | Susan Jeffrey

Chicago, IL – Vitamin-D deficiency is associated with an increased risk of fatal stroke in whites but not in blacks, a new study shows.

Although blacks had higher rates of both fatal stroke and vitamin-D deficiency, racial differences did not explain the excess risk in blacks compared with whites, said lead author Dr Erin Michos (Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD).

In whites, vitamin-D deficiency was associated with a twofold increase in fatal stroke after adjustment for other risk factors.

A randomized placebo-controlled trial, the Vitamin D and Omega-3 Trial (VITAL), funded by the National Institutes of Health and run by Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women’s Hospital, is currently investigating whether 2000-IU daily vitamin D or fish oil containing about 1 g of omega-3 fatty acids reduces incident cancer, heart disease, or stroke. Investigators plan to enroll 25% black subjects in that trial.

“We certainly await those results before we can strongly endorse widespread screening and treatment programs for vitamin-D deficiency,” Michos concluded. “But while we’re waiting for the clinical-trial data, I think there are compelling enough data that I do recommend screening for vitamin-D deficiency. It’s very common, and doses of 1000 to 2000 IU a day appear safe with little downside, and we know it has good benefit for the bone.”

The findings are being presented Monday here at the American Heart Association 2010 Scientific Sessions but were discussed Sunday at a press conference here.

 

Independent risk factor

Previously, the Johns Hopkins group and others have shown vitamin-D deficiency to be a risk factor for cardiovascular disease, MI, and all-cause and cardiovascular mortality, independent of traditional cardiovascular risk factors, Michos said. Vitamin-D deficiency can be easily screened for through 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D] testing and treated by vitamin-D supplementation and modest sunlight exposure, she said.

Previous work has also noted racial differences in 25(OH)D vitamin-D levels, which were thought perhaps to explain some of the excess cardiovascular risk seen in blacks compared with whites, Michos noted. Vitamin-D deficiency is highly prevalent in the US, but particularly so for black populations, since melanin in the skin blocks the UVB synthesis of vitamin D, acting as a natural sunscreen, she said. It’s estimated that 80% of blacks in the US have insufficient vitamin-D levels.

Prior studies looking at the relationship of vitamin D to stroke have been done only in white populations to date. “Because vitamin-D deficiency is more common in blacks and stroke is more common in blacks, we decided to examine whether low vitamin-D levels contribute to the excess risk of stroke in blacks compared with whites,” she said.

For this analysis, they used the third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES III), a nationally representative cross-sectional sample of US adults. Included were 7981 white and black adults with no history of cardiovascular disease and stroke. Between 1988 and 1994, they answered medical questionnaires and underwent physical exam and 25(OH)D testing.

NHANES III was linked to the National Death Index in 2006, which was used to identify participants who had died with stroke listed as the cause of death. Over an average of 14 years of follow-up, there were 176 total stroke deaths in 116 whites and 60 blacks.

“At baseline, as we anticipated that we’d see, blacks had much lower 25(OH)D levels than whites,” Michos said. Vitamin-D deficiency, defined as a 25(OH)D of <15 ng/mL, was seen in 6.6% of whites vs 32.3% of blacks.

“We confirmed prior work that among whites, those who were vitamin-D deficient had a twofold increased risk of dying of a fatal stroke compared with whites who had optimal vitamin-D levels,” she said. “However, to our surprise, we actually saw no association of vitamin-D levels with fatal stroke among blacks.”

Whites 2.16 1.04-4.49 <0.05
Blacks 0.94 0.50-1.79 NS

 

Still, blacks had a higher rate of fatal stroke compared with whites, a 65% increase after adjustment for a variety of risk factors, including age, sex, education, income, body-mass index, smoking, physical activity, and C-reactive protein, among others

She pointed to limitations of their study, including that vitamin D was measured only once at baseline, which may not capture lifetime patterns of vitamin-D status. They had only 60 fatal stroke events among blacks, so they may have been underpowered to detect a difference.

In addition, the methodology didn’t allow them to assess nonfatal or silent strokes or transient ischemic attacks, she said, “but this is an area that our group is going to be actively working on.”

She speculated that it is possible that blacks may have a relative adaptive resistance to the adverse effects of low vitamin-D levels; for example, despite lower vitamin-D levels, blacks have lower fracture and osteoporosis rates than whites.
Association is not causation

During discussion here, Michos said that while information from the VITAL trial will be valuable, providing evidence-based data to help guide patient management, she is concerned that with a single dose of vitamin D, the trial will not answer the question it has set out to answer.

“I’m a big believer that what matters biologically is having adequate levels of vitamin D as measured by 25-hydroxy vitamin-D levels,” she said. “So I’m not sure there’s one fixed dose that everybody should take, because your blood levels vary in response to a given dose based on your sun exposure, your genetics, your body-mass index. That dose may be too low for someone who’s too vitamin-D deficient; on the other hand, someone who has adequate vitamin-D levels may not need that dose.”

 

 

Dr Michelle A Albert (Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Boston, MA) is a coinvestigator on the VITAL trial and is responsible for the enrollment component for African Americans in the study.

At the press conference here, she agreed that it is difficult to use a single dose of vitamin D to ensure all subjects get to adequate levels. “However, I can tell you the dose was chosen to be one that would be as high as possible and not be toxic, to at least be powered to see an effect in the black population.”

Michos acknowledged that it is the highest dose that’s been used to date in a clinical trial. “By comparison, the Women’s Health Initiative only used 400 IU, so they are to be commended,” she said.

Albert was more cautious, though, about recommending vitamin-D supplements at this time after negative experience with antioxidant vitamins in the Women’s Health Study. Vitamin D is promising, but she doesn’t advocate vitamin D for her patients, she said, “because we don’t have any evidence, any clinical-trial evidence that says that giving vitamin D will reduce your risk.

“We have a lot of epidemiologic data, observational data that suggest that higher levels are associated with lower risk, but we have been up that tree before, and we have to be very careful because we’ve failed up that tree before.”

 

Dr Russell Luepker (University of Minnesota School of Public Health, Minneapolis) was moderator of the press conference. In an interview, he said that in his view, the data connecting vitamin-D levels and cardiovascular disease are too preliminary to have much impact on practice.

“We all got on the vitamin-E bandwagon a few years ago until finally somebody did some studies, including Drs Julie Buring and JoAnn Manson and the Brigham group, and they couldn’t find anything, the HOPE trial couldn’t find anything, and I think we need good studies before saying that, at least for cardiovascular disease,” Luepker said.

Bone health in adults and bone growth in children is a “good enough reason to put [vitamin D] in the milk,” he added, but they tend not to measure vitamin D for their patients at his institution. “As Michelle pointed out, we’ve been led down the pathway where epidemiologists say, ‘Well, there’s an association here, so obviously doing something about it must be the answer.’ ”

An epidemiologist himself, he still would like to see the results of VITAL and perhaps a confirmatory trial before changing clinical practice based on epidemiologic evidence.

 

Accumulating evidence

Other studies that will be presented here this week focus on other aspects of the connection between vitamin D and cardiovascular disease:

  • Researchers again used data from NHANES III and found serum vitamin-D levels were related to prehypertension. Dr Charumathi Sabanayagam (West Virginia University, Morgantown) and colleagues conclude that future randomized intervention trials should look at whether supplementation at that stage could prevent or delay onset of hypertension.
  • Dr Charles B Eaton (Brown University, Providence, RI) and colleagues looked at 25(OH) levels in 1829 postmenopausal women in the Women’s Health Initiative observational study and control groups followed over 10 years for cardiovascular and all-cause death. They found low vitamin-D levels were associated with both mortality measures, but the association was attenuated after adjustment for other traditional risk factors; waist circumference was most prominent.
  • On Tuesday, researchers with lead author Dr Mathew Good (University of Kansas Medical Center, Kansas City) will report results of an observational study using a database of more than 10 000 male and female patients, which found that vitamin-D deficiency was associated with hypertension, coronary heart disease, cardiomyopathy, diabetes, and mortality (odds ratio 2.64, 95% CI 1.901-3.662; p<0.0001). Vitamin-D supplementation in this cohort was associated with a “substantial survival benefit,” the researchers note, with a hazard ratio of 0.39 (95% CI 0.277-0.534; p<0.0001). The benefit was particularly evident in those who were deficient and was independent of aspirin or statin use, they note.
NHANES III is sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Center for Health Statistics. Michos and colleagues report no conflicts of interest.
