Ebola is the gift that will keep on giving, not just an October Surprise, it will continue to spread in coming months. Thanks President Obama. The only silver lining I can see in all of this is that it may finally tank the Obama Administration. Thanks to Obama’s idiocy (or is it his colossal ignorance, arrogance, or hatred of America) Ebola is now in the heart of America. Thomas Eric Duncan, who brought Ebola to Dallas, would (if he were still alive) be prosecuted in his native Liberia for falsely claiming he had not been in contact with any Ebola cases. He seems to have ‘shared’ his virus with a couple of his caretakers in Dallas and there are now at least 200 people being monitored – this is what is being widely report. Duncan had 70 (why so many?) healthcare workers who should have been quarantined. They could still be paid, they could still communicate with the outside world by telephone, but the rest of America would have been safe.
Those 70 healthcare workers have spouses, children, etc. (so at a minimum double that 70) and there were 132 (double that at a minimum) on the Cleveland to Dallas flight taken by one of his caretakers – so the numbers just don’t add up. Not much is known about Ebola. Is it possible that on the flight TO Cleveland she passed it along? Furthermore, the children of these 192 people are going to school and it only takes one to spread the disease to an entire school and from there it will go to every family with a child in that school.
There have been comparisons between Ebola and AIDS. Yes, they are both caused by viruses. Yes, they both come from Africa. But there is a huge difference. AIDS is ONLY spread by sexual contact or by blood transfusions – people tend to notice when they have sexual contact or a blood transfusion. Ebola is easily spread to people of all ages and both genders, and does not require any action on the part of the person catching it. You can walk right past someone with AIDS and not worry – but if you are near anyone with Ebola it is easy for you to catch it.
Nurse Nina Pham has been in the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas (and transferred Thursday night to a special care unit in Maryland) where she is still in serious condition after getting Ebola from Duncan, although she has received a blood transfusion from Dr. Kent Brantly, an Ebola survivor. The second infected healthcare worker from the same hospital, Amber Jay Vinson, is being moved to Emory Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia - I have been unable to discover why Vinson and not Pham, but I do know that Emory treated Brantly. However, I did find a number of stories about how Vinson flew to Dallas from Cleveland already had a low grade fever the day before being diagnosed, but was greenlighted for the trip by the CDC. Why did they do that? Why was she on a commercial plane after working with Thomas Eric Duncan? It would have made far more sense to have quarantined every health care worker who had any contact with him, and to do so for 30 days, yet here was a woman who traveled to Cleveland and back.
Things just keep getting curiouser and curiouser. When will we find President Barack Obama wandering around the White House lawn in his jamies? The White House just announced that 3,000 U.S. military personnel are going to be deployed to deal with the Ebola crisis in West Africa. This Obama now claims is the #1 threat to the USA. Is this insane? Or is this insane?
Only last week the entire nation heard Obama planned to deploy far fewer military personnel to deal with ISIS in the Middle East. So what is it? The truth seems to be that the #1 threat to America, to Israel, and to the free world is Barack Obama.
The sooner this man is removed from office the better. I know, I know, he has an insurance policy against that happening – Vice President Joe Biden. But even Biden may be better than what we currently have, and if POTUS is replaced soon enough we don’t have to deal with the silliness of Joe Biden in 2016 – he will have shot himself in the foot multiple times by then. In fact he will have shot himself in the foot so many times that even the Main Stream Press will have to report it. (I get the feeling that they hide a lot of this today in order to protect Obama.)
It seems that this sheer stupidity is fairly widespread among the Democrats. We all know about Nancy Pelosi and her ‘we must pass the bill to find out what is in it’ statement regarding Obamacare. We all know about Debbie Wasserman Schulz calling the Israeli Ambassador a liar, despite videos that showed the opposite. But have you heard that Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) said that the Gang of Eight’s immigration bill would have helped the cause because it would have allowed foreign trained doctors to leave the country to help with the crisis without jeopardizing their immigration status.
Here’s a thought: first we stop allowing people with contagious diseases, or countries that have known widespread contagious diseases, into the country, and also screen all potential immigrants for diseases. Why not tighter immigration laws to begin with? I understand that in the 1920s a potential immigrant could come to the USA and be turned away for a heart defect – now people with contagious diseases are allowed to enter. How things have changed.
When a government engages lawlessness, the powerful must be confronted and brought to account. When the Federal branch institutionalizes human trafficking of an uneducated peasant class of children, ugly truth must be addressed. The federal branch is aiding the creation of a future social strata of cheap labor. This is a form of soft slavery. This action is immoral. And yet it is a policy which is being aggressively pursued by the current U.S. administration.
The U.S. State Department releases a yearly “Trafficking in Persons Report”. The tenth edition includes a forward written by Hillary Rodham Clinton.
“I am pleased to celebrate and reflect upon the last decade of progress identifying and fighting the phenomenon of modern slavery…This annual assessment is an opportunity to diagnose the world’s efforts to implement the “3P” paradigm of prevention, protection, and prosecution… Ending this global scourge is an important policy priority for the United States.”
Quoting from the body of the report, “According to the Palermo Protocol, repatriation of trafficking victims should preferably be voluntary and done with the victim’s safety in mind. Many governments, believing they are acting in the victims’ best interests, make concerted efforts to return victims to their countries of origin as quickly as possible.”
So let’s take a look at the “3P” paradigm and examine how the federal branch is embarking on a subtle course to institutionalize human trafficking whilst *cloaking their deeds in darkness, and *attempting to deceive the American public.
Prevention went out the window when President Obama initiated the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program. More commonly known as the DREAM act, the 112th(continue reading at Economic Affairs)
As the old saying goes, “when even _____ (fill in the blank) says that ______ (fill in the blank) you are in trouble.” The latest left wing loon to notice that Obama is a liar is former Democrat Congressman Barney Frank of Massachusetts. In a recent edition of the Huffington Post (amazing they published this) Frank was quoted as saying this about Obamacare:
The rollout was so bad, and I was appalled -- I don't understand how the president could have sat there and not been checking on that on a weekly basis," Frank told HuffPost during a July interview. "But frankly, he should never have said as much as he did, that if you like your current health care plan, you can keep it. That wasn't true. And you shouldn't lie to people. And they just lied to people."
Any smart political adviser would have said, 'Don't lie to people, because you're gonna get caught up in it and it's gonna have this tsunami that you now have,'" Frank told HuffPost. "My political motto, very simple. I have always told the truth, and nothing but the truth. But I don't volunteer the whole truth in every situation.
Notice that Frank said, “I don’t understand” (or does he understand but does not want to admit it?). The answer is simple Barney, Obama is a liar about everything, and furthermore he doesn’t care about the American people, he probably hates them or at least the white ones, and he has his - so he just doesn’t care. Frank was one of the most liberal congressman ever, but at least he recognizes that there is a difference between lies and the truth and knows the President lied. Now if Barney would only admit that Obama is an anti-Semite, but I digress.
Another high profile leftist is Bill Maher, who not only has spoken out against the Obama administration’s policies on the current war begun by Hamas against Israel, but has had a guest who calls Obama a war criminal. The guest was Dr. Cornel West who seems to oppose all war anyway, that is when he is not busy race hustling. But even so, a high profile black man saying anything critical about a black American president is refreshing to say the least.
Ed Schultz, a commentator on the very liberal MSNBC (in case you never heard of him), is concerned that Obama is overreaching by transferring more power to the Executive branch and has warned that Obama’s use of Executive Orders to give legal status to illegal aliens will be an “electoral death nail” for Democrats in the next election. Liberal, high profile, attorney Jonathan Turley says the same thing.
Even The Washington Post and The Los Angeles Times have on occasion criticized Obama, and recently The New York Times said that Obama is “Crossing the Rubicon” if he carries through with his amnesty plans. Furthermore, various high profile left wing individuals other than those above have also criticized the president’s lawlessness. Ever notice how the defections from the left to the right and are always based on principles and/or the realization that conservative positions spell success for the person and the people of a specific location. However, defections from the right to the left seem to be based solely on opportunism, e.g. a re-districting that would mean losing an election if the person doesn’t move to the left (think for example of Florida’s flip-flopping Charlie Crist, an excellent example), or for some personal reason (usually a wife or lover).
So here’s to the crises faced by the American Left, and to the rising power of the Right. Let’s just hope that the Left is destroyed before it destroys the country.

PS: I do not consider Obama* black, technically he is a mulatto, and I don’t know where he was born. What I care about is that Obama is the first red American President. Red as in Communism and that is the real problem.
*In parts of the county Obama is also referred to as a post-turtle, that is a turtle on top of a post – it doesn’t know how it got there, how to get down, or what to do while it is there. Of course he is a post-turtle, he is a Marxist president in the land of the free, a country that believes in everything that Marxism opposes. He probably still thinks he is one of the best presidents in American history, while most Americans see him as the worst.
The stone monument and viewpoint on the beautiful hill 23 miles south of London Bridge says: In Grateful Remembrance of Leopold Salomons of Norbury Park Who Gave Box Hill To The Nation 1914. It was in danger of being developed and a Jew, Salomons, stepped in. The view is captivating.
This little undramatic action is typical of the Jewish people. Their names appear with predictable regularity with regard to charities and matters of social concern.
To my Jewish friends, for nearly two thousand years you were dispersed amongst us and yet in all that time there is not one record of State insurrection. Wherever you have set up home you have sought to become part of the host society insofar as that society permitted you.
There are remarkably few Jewish names in the annals of criminality. You have served your home countries in all wars, serving with honour and loyalty. Wherever you have been accepted, prosperity has followed. You have enriched us in the Arts, particularly Music. Likewise, in the area of Science and Medicine.
It may not please you but without you Christianity would be Saviourless. The story which I related above about Leopold Salomons was hardly earth-shattering but multiply it many times and your influence on our society is insistent and undeniable. True, this influence has occasionally been negative, but that is the exception, not the rule. When we forbade you from owning land, you became doctors and lawyers, when we barred you from the professions, you excelled at trade. You have been attacked, seasonally robbed of your hard-earned life-savings, your books destroyed, your holidays banned, and your response was to pack your few sticks and to gather what could be salvaged from the ruin and start again elsewhere, from scratch. Occasionally we didn't allow you to take the sticks, they too were ours. It was the unnameable Nazi who said that you were to be left only your eyes, with which to weep.
We curse you to "Go home to Israel!" And, when you are there, we cry, "Get out of Israel!" In Israel you have had to hermetically seal yourselves in, a barrier to the side, a dome above, and sonar below, away from the bullies and the haters. The situation is a crying shame. And you endure. For you are the people that cannot die. All others pass away, except the eternal Jew. We may despise you, be jealous of you, misunderstand you and narrow our eyes at you, or we may love you and admire you, we may care about your happiness and your future. But, ultimately, it will make no difference to your destiny, you march to an unheard tune, a sad and merry tune that the wind catches and is gone, perplexing to us Gentiles. You are more than us and less than us. 'More' because you are dreamers on your way from the fiery Mount where none of us have been, and a noble dream is priceless. 'Less' because your high calling is not yet realised, in fact, it seems farther off today than it ever did. It eludes your grasp. Hence you are more incomplete than the rest of us, there's something unfinished about you, but that too is your glory and will not be taken from you.
You will never rest until we all rest. And we will not find rest until you do. We pass you on the road with a nod and secret smile and then turn to watch you go. The wandering Jew, clutching an unforgettable vision. I have a request for you, you who have been hounded and torn through all time and every place and have made it miraculously, into the 21st century free of self pity and possessing a loving concern for others, even your tormentors.
My request is, will you accept our apology Before God, our God, comes to us and asks "How did you treat my people?"
This is an election year, and the most important race in America is the 23rd Congressional District of Florida. EVERY member of the House of Representatives is up for re-election – that means that Debbie Wasserman Schultz (DWS), best known for her 1980s’ cheerleader hairstyle and her lies, must run. She currently represents the 23rd district and is also Chairman of the Democrat National Party; hence I say this is THE MOST IMPORTANT POLITICAL RACE in America.
Opposing her in November will be one of two Republicans running in the August 26th primary (early voting is August 15-24, and absentee ballots will be mailed July 22). For all Americans not just conservatives, and not just Floridians, the choice is obvious, what is needed is a candidate who is opposed to amnesty (history demonstrates appeasement never works). Both Republican candidates make some nice statements about the issue on their websites, but Juan Garcia’s recently revealed that he actually supports amnesty, a position more in line with Debbie Wasseman Schultz and the current occupant of the White House. Joe Kaufman on the other hand makes it quite clear on his website, just below the “we are a nation of immigrants” statement that: “As a member of Congress, Joe Kaufman will fight for the rights of legal immigrants and insist we never reward those who break our laws.” WOW – someone who gets it, and he is running for Congress.
This is the man who must run in November to defeat DWS. Florida is often shown on election maps as blue, but in fact it is closer to purple (a mixture of blue and red) so this is a race that needs to be taken very seriously. The 23d Congressional District covers an area of South Florida from Weston to Miami. So I urge you to tell everyone you know in Southern Florida about this election.
Most of the illegal immigrants who are in, or who are headed for, the United States are under 18, and about 80% are not exactly children, they are 14-17 year old males – the ideal recruiting age for gangs. Not only that but many have contagious diseases. Furthermore, the economic impact of a surge of low-skilled, uneducated, non-English speakers who come to this country for whatever benefits available to them is not something any the United States really afford, even at the best of times.
Now I have a question for all of those who think that if someone breaks into your house or takes your wallet they should be arrested because it is a crime. What about people who come into your country in violation of the law?
Now some people don’t like the term “illegal immigrants.” In Maryland for example Democrat Governor Martin O’Malley believes that illegal immigrant children should be called “refugees.” Hey, Gov. O’Malley, those “children” are nearly adults legally, and you only have to keep up on the news to know that. Fortunately Rep. Andy Harris (R-MD) discovered that the federal government was attempting to bring some to Maryland and took action forcing HHS (Health and Human Services Department) to cancel their plans to send illegals to Westminster, Maryland just 35 miles from Baltimore. Even the black community in Baltimore, which usually supports this administration, is opposed to the idea.
A woman in Kentucky is demanding answers from a local VA hospital after she claims her husband was erroneously pronounced dead.
According to Jennifer Dunn, doctors at the Lexington VA Hospital assured her last week that her husband, Danny Dunn, was no longer among the living.
The wife was given her husband’s time of death, but when she went into his room to bid a final farewell, she found Mr Dunn with a strong heart rate and blood pressure.
It all started last Thursday morning when 46-year-old Danny Dunn, an U.S. Army veteran, was discovered unconscious by his wife in their Central Kentucky home.
The former soldier was rushed to a hospital in Harrodsburg and was later airlifted to the VA Hospital in Lexington, where medical personnel pronounced him dead.
‘I said, “Are ya’ll sure he’s gone?” and they said, “There’s no pulse, ma’am, he’s gone,”‘ Jennifer Dunn told LEX18.
In accordance with her husband’s end-of-life wishes, Mrs Dunn made the decision to take him off life support, but she quickly discovered that Danny still had vital signs. Utter shock: Jennifer Dunn was given her husband’s time of death and went into his room to take him off life support, in accordance with his end-of-life wishes, when she discovered that he still had vital signs
As of Monday, the 46-year-old veteran was very much alive, and according to his wife, apparently growing stronger.
‘He squeezed my hand when I asked him to,’ she said. ‘He opened his eyes when I asked him to. And he grabbed my hand.’
The Dunn family now want the ailing husband and father transferred to another hospital for treatment.
The VA facility in Lexington released a general statement to the local TV station, which read in part: ‘Veterans can have confidence that our staff of dedicated and professional providers is committed to working with them and their families to honor their wishes and support their needs.’
But the Dunns are far from satisfied with the hospital’s response to the near-fatal blunder.
‘They said his soul was gone and that he wasn’t living no more,’ said Dunn’s son, Tyler. ‘That he was gone long before we got him there… I mean we’re just looking for answers and they won’t give us any.’
There is great good news for those, who like myself, were looking for a loophole to evade the unconstitutional, and unaffordable, Affordable Healthcare Act, AKA Obamacare. John Berlau and Michael Mayfield have provided an excellent run down at American Spectator in their Praying for an Obamacare Escape, Health care ministries offer IRS-free shelter (see here).
As to Obamacare (which crashed again today), well, I have a few questions about that:
• How could more people have healthcare, at a lower price yet there would be the same number (or fewer) doctors?
Obama promised that if you liked your doctor, you could keep your doctor (same number of doctors?) and if you liked your policy, you could keep your policy. Both lies of course, but how could that be? It could not. Doctors are quitting at high numbers. Also enrollment in medical schools, so I have heard but have no data, is down. Numbers of nurse practitioners is increasing. This is problematic, since many have no or little practical experience and certainly little training as compared to physicians. Yet, they will be treating patients as if they were doctors. Patients may not know the difference, they may think they are seeing a physician when in fact he/she is a nurse practitioner.
• Intimidation is a powerful force, and it is pretty clear that the general population of America is not that well educated thanks to public schools. BUT did anyone seriously believe that in a country where nearly everyone has a cell phone, and/or, internet access, plus nearly everyone capable of using either has a strong sense of privacy, that like lemmings the population of the United States would accept the violation of their privacy necessary to enroll in Obamacare?
Apparently the Obama administration thought so, evidence that this administration really, really doesn’t understand the American people and American culture.
• The government was going to get involved (as if the post-office, or anything else the government is involved in really works). Wouldn’t the government taking on one sixth of the economy be kind of expensive?
Billions has been spent, untold and unreported Billions, on the website, promotions by the government, payments to organizations to promote, and eventually insurance companies will be bailed out (even more than they already are?).
• The government, aka Obamacare, was going to do the enrolling, but you would still be going through some sort of health insurance company. Don’t insurance companies have costs? Doesn't this just add another layer (government) of costs?
Since the government has no 'insurance company', existing health insurance companies must be involved (until they go out of business or the government forces a national insurance on Americans). Costs? A financial burden has been placed on insurance companies that must change policies, update policies so they meet government standards - to what extent we really have no information.
• One party, the Democrat Party, had been trying to persuade the American people that they needed nationalized health care for more than 30 years. Why was their opposition so opposed?
•Nationalized health care has never worked in any country, and many who have it are trying to get rid of it. So why would it work in America?
• Finally, it is my understanding that the Constitution of the United States of America is the law of the land. When was there a repeal of the Tenth Amendment?
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or the people.
Seeing as the Constitution of the United States of America makes no mention of health care, federal taxes, education, nor any department or regulatory body related to these activities doesn’t that make Obamacare an illegal, i.e. unconstitutional, law?
For those who still believe that Obamacare is the law of the land, let me say just this: so was slavery.
VATICAN CITY (CBS St. Louis) — The Vatican’s chief justice feels that President Barack Obama’s policies have been hostile toward Christians.
In an interview with Polonia Christiana magazine –and transcribed by Life Site News — Cardinal Raymond Burke said that Obama “promotes anti-life and anti-family policies.”
“It is true that the policies of the president of the United States have become progressively more hostile toward Christian civilization. He appears to be a totally secularized man who aggressively promotes anti-life and anti-family policies,” Burke told the magazine.
The former archbishop of St. Louis stated that Obama is trying to “restrict” religion.
“Now he wants to restrict the exercise of the freedom of religion to freedom of worship, that is, he holds that one is free to act according to his conscience within the confines of his place of worship but that, once the person leaves the place of worship, the government can constrain him to act against his rightly-formed conscience, even in the most serious of moral questions,” Burke said.
Burke took a swipe against Obama’s Affordable Care Act over the law’s birth control mandate, saying “such policies would have been unimaginable in the United States even 40 years ago.”
“In a democracy, such a lack of awareness is deadly,” Burke told the magazine. “It leads to the loss of the freedom which a democratic government exists to protect. It is my hope that more and more of my fellow citizens, as they realize what is happening, will insist on electing leaders who respect the truth of the moral law as it is respected in the founding principles of our nation.”
What individuals and what organizations might be considered 'radical'? One might think Muslims would be the first suspects, but no. According to the article at InfoWars:
Doctors in Britain are being forced to become state snitches and spot “radical” patients under an NHS initiative that threatens to cut funding if a GP practice fails to take part in the program.
Under the new NHS England policy, every GP practice must send a member of staff on the “Prevent” counter terrorism course, during which they are trained to detect patients who are ” vulnerable to radicalization,” before notifying authorities.
In addition to the “lead” staff member who takes the course, all employees of the practice must be made aware of the strategy.
Labeling the program “mindless bureaucracy,” former GPC chair Dr Laurence Buckman said, “It is so silly and ridiculous that I can’t believe NHS England are requiring this or making CCGs responsible for it.”
Other doctors raised the issue that forcing GPs to become informants for the state by demanding they monitor “radicalization” of patients would be a clear breach of patient-doctor confidentiality.
“It is completely disproportionate and a poor use of GP resources and time. It is effectively asking GPs to be a government intelligence agency,” Dr Maureen Baker, chairwoman of the Royal College of General Practitioners, told the Express.
As we have highlighted, British authorities have cited the need to combat radical political beliefs as a justification for invasive and chilling state interference in the private lives of citizens.
Last week, the Mayor of London Boris Johnson said that parents who teach their children to be “full of hate” should be targeted by social services, with Johnson suggesting that children whose parents are supporters of the British National Party, a right-wing organization that vehemently opposes immigration, may be taken into care in “extreme” circumstances.
However, children are already being taken from parents in much less “extreme” circumstances, such as in the case of a couple who had their foster children removed by the state because they were members of the UK Independence Party, the third largest political party in Britain.
Meanwhile, Scotland recently passed a law that designates a state minder to every child in the country up to the age of 18, a move described by the Christian Institute as a, “dreadful extension of the state’s tentacles into family life.”
Here in the United States physicians are being ordered under Obamacare to ask patients if they have guns in the home and other invasive questions and apparently report back to the government. Can it be long before physicians are forced to report TEA Party members who have been called terrorists and other names by Obama supporters?
