  • “Incompetence or Willful Misdirection”? [Ebola]

    10/20/2014 12:38:21 AM PDT · by 2ndDivisionVet · 2 replies
    We are at a point where it is difficult to determine if our nation is endangered by the possibility of more cases of Ebola entering our nation because of “incompetence or willful misdirection.” I highly recommend taking the time to read Jonathan V. Last’s excellent article, “Six Reasons to Panic,” which appears in the current issue of The Weekly Standard. Jonathan Last states, As a rule, one should not panic at whatever crisis has momentarily fixed the attention of cable news producers. But the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, which has migrated to both Europe and America, may be the...

    NY Times reports: “Officer Wilson appeared for four hours before a St. Louis County grand jury” to tell his side of story.A breaking New York Times report sheds new light on Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson’s mortal encounter with local Michael Brown. The police officer who fatally shot Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., two months ago has told investigators that he was pinned in his vehicle and in fear for his life as he struggled over his gun with Mr. Brown, according to government officials briefed on the federal civil rights investigation into the matter. The officer, Darren Wilson, has...

    As you might expect, they weren’t that into it. Before they entered the shooting range we got a little insight into their thoughts on guns, particularly gun control in America. Across the board, it seems, they felt we need more gun control. That being said, there were also some conflicting feelings about the experience.

    The Weekly Standard ^ | 10-19-2014 | William Kristol
    "Protocols.” You can’t turn on your TV without hearing about them. The last time the word featured so prominently in American public discourse was when Henry Ford took it upon himself to pay for and distribute half a million copies of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion almost a century ago. History, of course, isn’t repeating itself. The publication of those Protocols was designed to foster fear and loathing of Jews. The invocation of these “protocols” by Obama administration officials as they bungle the Ebola crisis is designed to shield themselves from justified fear and loathing on the part...

    Apparently asking $15 an hour for fast food workers isn’t enough so unappreciated socialists in Seattle are demanding the minimum wage be raised to a “paltry” $20 an hour. There are skilled and educated professionals who don’t command such a wage, not to mention soldiers facing death daily on the front lines of tyranny, but these hypocrites who religiously shell out $5 for a cup of Joe are demanding social justice because they feel slighted by more accomplished Americans? If radical leftists ever succeed in enacting such a law, and I believe it’s only a matter of time before they...

    Bank Robber in a Kroeger's On freerepublic.com, a discussion about the Moms Demand Action push for a gun ban following an armed robbery of a bank inside of a Kroeger's, brought this commonly expressed question.  This one was from rktman: "Uh, how would this have stopped the robbery again? Please 'splain that to us." I will explain it.  MDA is playing a very long game.   In order to be effective, they have to reduce the number of guns in society by large, large, amounts.  They have to avoid considering any benefits gained from gun ownership.  Here is how I...

Away from her enraged husband, she called police. In the meantime, Sayed had gotten into the driver's seat. When his wife started to walk back to the car, Sayed started pushing her and punching her in the face. As she stumbles back to once...

His condition kept deteriorating, and he was barely able to talk. Wathen managed to whisper to a nurse his wish to see his dog, Bubba, just one more time.

    Our confidence in our government must be restored with new leadership. What has been the over-riding theme of life in America since Barack Obama became President in 2008? It has been the continued loss of confidence Americans have regarding various elements of the federal government. From the Centers for Disease Control, the Veterans Administration, the Secret Service, to the Department of Justice and the Internal Revenue Service, these and other agencies have been tainted in ways that have turned his two terms into a litany of scandals and failures.

Or, consider the dangerous, utterly indefensible policy of allowing the border to stay open, and illegal entries to cross, allowed to stay, even when criminal convictions for violent crimes are proved.

She uses every excuse in the book, claiming because her friend and her husband “have money” (in her opinion), she shouldn’t have to pay it back. Unlike her friend – who also has children – she doesn’t work. She then uses her kids – she has five, her choice – to then justify not repaying her friend, calling her kids her job! This is...

Upon taking office, Dictator Roosevelt made private ownership of gold illegal and sent government agents to invade private homes and businesses searching for gold to confiscate with fervor the Spanish Conquistadors would be proud of.

But her new plan has a $6,000 annual deductible, meaning that Ms. Wanderlich, who works part time at a landscaping company outside Chicago, has to pay for most of her medical services up to that amount. She is skipping this year’s brain scan and hoping for the best. “To spend thousands of dollars just making...

In fact, I would say that most Americans, whether they’re in the church or not, have heard it. “Render unto Caesar.” The average person might say: “Let’s see, I think that has something to do with what we’re supposed to owe the government.” And they would be right. It does have to do with what we owe the government. But don’t stop the saying there. It goes on, you know. “Render unto Caesar . . . the things that are Caesar’s.” And...

    No-one doubts that there will be people who hate Jews. The most obvious example is devout and observant Muslims, who are commanded by their religion to do so. They are also ordered to hate Christians, but for some reason the latter injunction doesn't evoke even a fraction of the emotion inspired by the former, despite the fact that an infinitely higher number of Christians than Jews suffer the consequences of this today. Incidentally - this is not relevant to the rest of the article -, I've found what I consider a better way to distinguish between Muslims of various...

    Our current government has shown that they cannot be trusted with the most basic elements of handling the Ebola situation. Every assurance they’ve uttered has been proven bogus, and every protocol they purport has failed. Roughly 150 air travelers per day, originating from Ebola hell-holes of West Africa, arrive here in the U.S. on board commercial flights. The flights do not come directly from West African countries, but from places where flights from those countries connect. Even after the still-unfolding Ebola disaster in Dallas, we are told by our government that it’s safe and sufficient to rely on “self-reporting” by...

    In Part 1, I briefly discussed the origins of Halloween and debunked a few myths about the holiday.  In Part 2, I covered how Halloween ruins kids and why you shouldn’t observe it.  In this final part we’ll see how Halloween is destructive and fruitless. 3.  Halloween celebrates fear, darkness, and mayhem. Masks obscure.  Costumes disguise.  It’s okay for kids to pretend they are someone else, when they play.  It’s even fun to dress up.  But take a night when everyone is in disguise, and it’s all about secrecy.  And fear.  The purpose of Halloween is to scare and be...

    After being shot, one robber dropped the stolen money. An armed citizen in Arizona has stopped a bank robbery in a dramatic and effective fashion.   It appears that he determined what was happening, took action, and fired on the armed robbers when they resisted.   One robber was killed, the other is in custody.   It reminds one a bit of the famous Arkansas bank robbery that was thwarted by armed citizens in 1922.  From abc15.com: "He took the keys out of the car because they left the car running. And so he took the keys out of the car and...

    Michigan Republican Senate candidate Terri Lynn Land has to benefit from this news. She is just 2 points down but needs our help. Reach out to her at https://transaxt.com/Donate/2G8TUC/TerriLynnLandforSenate/?src=nav&amt=50 It took a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request filed by Breitbart News to get the truth about Michigan Democrat Gary Peters’ military service “jacket.” Once it was opened it became easy to see why he wouldn’t want anybody to review it because it shows, “a man who had a broken service record that was substandard,” according to one of his former Commanding Officers. To be specific, Peters’ former C.O. said,...

    The US troops President Obama has ordered into West Africa to help in the battle against Ebola are receiving a scant 4 hours of training about the virus. Soldiers who have had the training have characterized it as "frightening." "We will be exposed with minimal protective gear." "If you get it you'll probably die a horrible death." "It's far worse than getting shot or even blown up." United States Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) spokeswoman Caree Vander-Linden insisted that the skimpy training was "appropriate for the mission. We're basically trying to warn the troops to be cautious,...

    Dan from Squirrel Hill's Blog Here are nine examples of Obama’s lying and incompetence regarding Ebola 1) Falsely said it was “unlikely” that anyone from Africa with Ebola would fly to the U.S. because the “necessary precautions” were being takenOn September 16, 2014, Obama said:“First and foremost, I want the American people to know that our experts, here at the CDC and across our government, agree that the chances of an Ebola outbreak here in the United States are extremely low. We’ve been taking the necessary precautions, including working with countries in West Africa to increase screening at airports so that...
  • Obama Claims 'Experts' Told Him 'What We're Doing' is FAR More Effective than Any Africa Travel Ban

    First Dear Leader told us we couldn't ban travel from east African nations with Ebola victims lying rotting in the streets because it would 'hamper aid efforts'... like the United States of America doesn't have an Air Force or anything- NOW the story goes that his bungling, incompetent administration's reactive, paralyzed-by-some-racial-narrative response to the crisis is 'more effective' according to  'experts in the field' that he's consulted. And you know what Obama 'experts' look like. But as Churchill once said, 'No matter how beautiful the strategy, one should at least occasionally look at the results'... indeed. I can understand him not wanting to...
  • Iraq Did Have Old Chemical Weapons

    Coach is Right ^ | October 18, 2014 | Jim Emerson, staff writer
    The New York Times reports that for more than a decade, American forces discovered and in several cases were injured by Chemical Weapons that were hidden or abandoned in Iraq years earlier. These Unmarked chemical weapons had been intermixed with conventional weapons in order to hide them from weapon inspectors. Not knowing the true nature of the unmarked ordnance made them an additional hazard, both as improvised explosive devices (IED) and for the explosive ordinance devices (EOD), to the personal sent to neutralize them. Secrecy Since the beginning of Iraqi Freedom, allied encounters with chemical weapons were kept secret and...

    My biggest complaint against liberalism is that it exists in a utopian dream world in which the facts are largely ignored. Just some examples: • On the social issues of abortion and homosexuality, the science is unambiguously against liberalism. Abortion takes the life of an innocent person. On homosexuality, there is no gay gene. Even so, marriage is not about love or rights of adults; it is about procreation and children. The evidence consistently points to children doing better in a home with a mom and a dad. And promiscuous anal sex, which is the norm in the gay lifestyle,...

    Here’s a factoid you might find interesting: none of the other FLOTUS’s that I’ve had the honor of reflecting have ever campaigned for anyone other than their husbands. Not so Lady M: she spends nearly as much time on the campaign and fund raising trail as Big Guy these days.Most recently she was stumping in Florida for Charlie Crist: “We need you to cast your ballot starting next Monday for early voting,” Obama said at a gymnasium at the Central Florida Fair grounds. “I’m asking you, vote early.” I’m sorry to report that this took place yesterday, while I was...
