An important and instructive message
News from the U. S. Department of Defense regarding the deadly Ebola virus sparks major concerns as Marine Corps Gen. John Kelly, commander of the U.S. Southern Command, makes grim predictions. Kelly says the Ebola virus will not be contained in West Africa, and if infected people flee those countries and spread the disease to Central and South America, it could cause “mass migration into the United States” of those seeking treatment.
“If the disease gets to countries like Guatemala, Honduras or El Salvador, it will cause a panic and people will flee the region,” Gen. Kelly said last week in remarks to the National Defense University. “They will run away from Ebola, or if they suspect they are infected, they will try to get to the United States for treatment.
Yet Barack Obama assures us the chances of an Ebola outbreak in U.S. are extremely low (video).
Juxtapose General Kelly’s concerns against the blasé attitude of California’s radical leftist senior Sen. Dianne Feinstein, 81. She recently wrote this commentary, for the San Diego Union Tribune, in which she unequivocally declared the border secure, saying thoughts to the contrary were based on “false fears.”
“The bottom line” she asserts, “is that the southern border is more secure than ever.” Feinstein assures readers that time has come to pass “immigration reform,“ —- more accurately known as amnesty —- deceitfully claiming “the border security package included in the Senate-passed comprehensive immigration reform bill would further lock it down.” She offers empty assurances that a pending bill addresses “border security.”
It does not.
As a case in point, Judicial Watch’s Corruption Chronicles confirms the fact that 4 ISIS terrorists have been captured on the border as they recently entered Texas via Mexico. How many have passed through undetected is anyone’s guess.
Seeing Red AZ posted “Hezbollah on our doorstep: Radical Muslims in border towns,” in 2011. It includes a link to a disturbing newscast from ABC 10 News in San Diego, which should have sounded the alarm, but didn’t.
Turkey, integral to Obama’s “broad coalition” is now disputing his claim it will let U.S. aircraft fly from an American base into Iraq and Syria to fight ISIS. The Muslim country’s Istanbul University has become a haven for the terrorist group.
Still, Obama, Feinstein, Harry Reid and liberals of their ilk who care more about expanding the Democrat base than the safety and security of America’s citizens, continue to be reelected. They are joined by long-in-the-tooth, establishment RINOs epitomized by John McCain, in D.C. over well over three decades, and “shortimer” Jeff Flake, first elected in 2000. Voting for amnesty supporters is voting against our country’s best interests. Think about that as you mark your ballots.
Radical Islamic terrorism: The words we dare not speak
On Nov. 5. 2009, Maj. Nidal Hasan, an Army psychiatrist and radical Islamist opened fire at a Fort Hood, Texas processing facility where soldiers were readying for overseas deployment. Hasan was convicted of 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted murder, in the bloody massacre. During his jihadist rampage, Hasan screamed, “Allahu Akbar!” (“Allah is Great!”)
Yet the U.S. Department of Defense continues to define this carnage as “workplace violence.” This is the final DOD Fort Hood shooting review in which the words militant jihadist or Muslim extremist are missing, but “workplace violence” appear.
Now Fox News reports Hasan has written to Pope Francis advocating “jihad,” and clearly aligning himself with radical Islam. Hasan previously described himself —- and again in the letter —- using the acronym “SoA,” or “Soldier of Allah.” And although he pledges his allegiance to the Islamic State (ISIS) and its leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the defining words go unmentioned by our own government.
Hasan makes multiple references to the Koran in the letter, and includes a bulleted list of guidelines for “believers.” In one subsection titled “Jihad,” Hasan praises “The willingness to fight for All-Mighty Allah,” describing it as a test that elevates the “mujahadeen” who “are encouraged to inspire the believers.” He states that “fighters have a greater rank in the eyes of Allah than believers who don’t fight.”
On Sept. 25, Alton Nolan, a recent Muslim convert with a penchant for trying to bring his co-workers to Islam, was temporarily suspended from his job for proselytizing. In a rage, he viciously behead a female co-worker and repeatedly stabbed another, who survived the attack.
And predictably, Nolan’s sadistic assaults on the women, following a killing spree of highly publicized beheadings by the ISIS terrorists he revered on his web page, is referred to as …..”workplace violence.”
The cockpits of commandeered commercial aircraft were overtaken by 19 Muslim extremists who slaughtered nearly 3,000 people on American soil just 13 years ago. In his leadership role as President of the United States, George W. Bush never reconfigured that evil as “workplace violence.”
Barack Obama says “America is not, and will never be, at war with Islam.” Busy with time on the golf course or vacationing, it must have escaped his notice, but Islamic factions appear to be at war with America.
Why is the truth so difficult for liberals to acknowledge?
His choice of “acquaintances” speak to the core of the man
Saddam Hussein’s consultant threw a lavish farewell party for Arizona Democrat gubernatorial candidate Fred DuVal when DuVal left his post in the Clinton administration in 2001 to reestablish residency in Arizona, according to this Daily Caller report.
The report includes a substantiating link to the Washington Times, detailing the “impressive” double penthouse soiree on Cathedral Avenue NW where about 150 guests stopped by to wish career liberal lobbyist Fred DuVal well as he departed for Arizona.
With his move, DuVal was already setting in place the groundwork to run for governor of the state he had abandoned years earlier.
The party’s host, notorious fellow lobbyist and Washington insider, Edward J. von Kloberg III, greeted party guests while “donning black slippers embroidered with a devil holding a pitchfork,” the Washington Diplomat reported.
Von Kloberg, who dramatically committed suicide in 2005, served as a public affairs consultant for some of the world’s most despotic and tyrannical dictators including Saddam Hussein (Iraq), Mobutu Sese Seko (Congo), Samuel K. Doe (Liberia), Nicolae Ceausescu (Romanian genocidal butcher), among others. He was reportedly attempting to sign up North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Il in 2001.
DuVal’s campaign spokesman characterized their association an “acquaintanceship” and told the Daily Caller that criticism of their relationship is a “smear.”
The race was earlier said to be a dead heat. The Arizona Free Enterprise Club’s more recent poll results showing Ducey with a six-point lead can be seen here. Expect those numbers to soar in Ducey’s favor on the heels of the Daily Caller‘s revelation.
H/T to Night Owl for sending this Washington Times news link to the lavish farewell bash thrown for Fred DuVal by his close associate, the disreputable Edward J. von Kloberg III. With this substantiating evidence of the party DuVal claims not to remember, his memory might be jogged.
We include the link here.
Thomas Duncan, 1st Ebola patient diagnosed in U.S., died today in Dallas
The General Election is just around the bend. Many of the races and candidates have been covered here. But today we digress from campaigns to a single politician —- Barack Hussein Obama.
As the President of the United States, he is the man entrusted with the solemn duty of keeping American citizens safe. Yet he is now risking the lives of the populace with policies designed to further the spread of a deadly contagion. More concerned with political correctness and a commitment to open borders, he refuses too impose any travel restrictions from the West African nations where death runs rampant. Several African nations, including Kenya and Nigeria have issued travel bans. Additionally, Obama has inexplicably sent American troops, unprepared to deal with a deadly epidemic, to the infected areas.
The U.S. State Department currently allows applicants with HIV/AIDS to apply and enter our country. Those infected with tuberculosis, leprosy, or other afflictions “of public health significance” can apply for waivers.
Ebola, with no treatment or known cure, is rapidly becoming a global health crisis of monumental proportions. According to this September CDC report, which admits under-reporting of the actual cases, the number of Ebola outbreaks in Liberia and Sierra Leone could escalate to between 550,000 and 1.4 million by January 2015, and rise even higher if there are no “additional interventions or changes in community behavior.”
Another assessment published by WHO experts in the New England Journal of Medicine reports the fatality rate of the outbreak in West Africa is 71% and assesses the “current epidemiologic outlook [as] bleak.” “The Ebola epidemic,” they write, is “in grave danger of spiraling out of control.”
Against this backdrop, we invite you to read the illuminating commentary “Ebola and Obama” by Dr. Thomas Sowell. It’s printed in Human Events, known for its powerful, conservative voices.
ACLUers condone infanticide and prefer war on Christians to war on terrorists
This revealing interview session, conducted by Fox News’ Jesse Watters, is interspersed with much needed comic relief clips. It took place at the recent ACLU convention in Princeton, New Jersey.
Notice that one of the interviewees is a University of Chicago law professor. That’s the same school where Barack Obama allegedly was a constitutional law professor.
It has now been 185 days since 25-year-old Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi was jailed and held in solitary confinement in Tijuana, Mexico on weapons charges. He had three guns among his possessions packed in his truck as he was moving from Florida to California.
The Marine veteran, diagnosed with post traumatic stress syndrome that has gone untreated, served two tours in Afghanistan. He said he never intended to leave the country but missed an exit when heading to meet friends for dinner at a border town restaurant.
If convicted of weapons charges, he faces six to 21 years in a Mexican prison. Barack Obama has never followed through (news video) on his stated intention to contact Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto to request Sgt. Tahmooressi’s release, although the two have discussed other issues.
Question: Isn’t it time to cut off foreign aid to this crime-ridden and noxious nation that defies our sovereign border, brazenly disregards our laws and blatantly treats our citizens with contempt? Mexico received $265 million in U. S. taxpayer paid foreign aid in 2013 —- excluding military aid.
