    Doctors at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center released a statement on Tuesday revealing that Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin was treated in late December for prostate cancer and was hospitalized at the start of this month with complications from a urinary tract infection.

    Austin's health status has come under intense scrutiny after news broke late last week that he had been hospitalized without the Biden administration knowing about it.

    "As part of Secretary Austin's routinely recommended health screening, he has undergone regular prostate specific antigen (PSA) surveillance," the doctors said in a statement. "Changes in his laboratory evaluation in early December 2023 identified prostate cancer which required treatment."

    On December 22, 2023, Austin was admitted to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and "underwent a minimally invasive surgical procedure called a prostatectomy to treat and cure prostate cancer."

    Austin was discharged from the hospital and went home the following morning.

    "On January 1st, 2024, Secretary Austin was admitted to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center with complications from the December 22 procedure, including nausea with severe abdominal, hip, and leg pain," the doctors said. "Initial evaluation revealed a urinary tract infection. On January 2, the decision was made to transfer him to the ICU for close monitoring and a higher level of care."

    They said that his prognosis was "excellent" regarding the cancer diagnosis and that his infection has cleared and they anticipate a full recovery.

    "During this stay, Secretary Austin never lost consciousness and never underwent general anesthesia," they said. "Prostate cancer is the most common cause of cancer among American men, and it impacts 1 in every 8 men - and 1 in every 6 African American men - during their lifetime. Despite the frequency of prostate cancer, discussions about screening, treatment, and support are often deeply personal and private ones."

26 days after the October 7th Terror attacks on Israel, where over 1400 Jewish men, women and children were gruesomely murdered, and hundreds more made hostage: Should the Biden /Harris administration finally state that the administration's primary Middle East negotiating partner, Iran, is behind the funding and strategy of the aggressors, the Hamas Terrorists, or continue to take the more moderate position of "Don't," which is clearly not working?
  Yes, name Iran as the funding /strategy culprit, and begin to enforce the President Trump era sanctions to END Iran's ability to prosecute this war against Israel and the United States.
  No, Iran is a valuable partner in the motives of the Biden / Harris administration, and must not be named as the culprit and our enemy.
  I have larger concerns just to survive in this economy.

In the minds of many, since January 20, 2021, the World has become far less safe in every theater of conflict, beginning with the attack of Israel by Iran /Hamas, so the question becomes: What caused this Worldwide calamity of extreme geopolitical dysfunction, and what will correct it?
  Joe Biden is the cause of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when a Republican is elected president.
  This delayed Worldwide dysfunction and constant conflict is all Donald Trump's fault, as it is with everything that occurs going forward, and long before the man ever became the 45th president..
  Joe Biden is the "root cause" of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when former President Donald John Trump is elected president.
  In the imitable words of Alfred E. Newman: "What, me worry?"
