“I was once quoted, accurately, as saying that during the years I spent fighting TB, my enemy was a micro-bacterial—tuberculosis—but now it’s an even lower form of life: tobacco executives!

An executive from Phillip Morris actually wrote to me and complained, basically, that this was a form of hate speech, and I had to agree. So I no longer use that expression.

Barack Obama, Bewildered

BystanderWashington Post ^ | October 23, 2014 | Charles KrauthhammerPosted on 10/23/2014, 10:06:16 PM by lbryceThe president is upset. Very upset. Frustrated and angry.

Seething about the government’s handling of Ebola, said the front-page headline in the New York Times last Saturday.There’s only one problem with this pose, so obligingly transcribed for him by the Times.

It’s his government. He’s president. Has been for six years. Yet Barack Obama reflexively insists on playing the shocked outsider when something goes wrong within his own administration.Charles Krauthammer writes a weekly political column that runs on Fridays.

View Archive RSS The IRS? “It’s inexcusable, and Americans are right to be angry about it, and I am angry about it,” he thundered in May 2013 when the story broke of the agency targeting conservative groups.

“I will not tolerate this kind of behavior in any agency, but especially in the IRS.”Except that within nine months, Obama had grown far more tolerant, retroactively declaring this to be a phony scandal without “a smidgen of corruption.”Obamacare rollout?

“Nobody is more frustrated by that than I am,” said an aggrieved Obama about the botching of the central element of his signature legislative achievement.

“Nobody is madder than me.”

Gunny G: SEEN “THE ONE” COMMUNITY ORGANIZER, YA’VE SEEN THEM ALL !!!!! ~ The CDC’s Idiotic Talking Points About Ebola Come From a ‘Community Organizer’ | The Foxhole

October 17, 2014 1 comment

THAT’s why Frieden is such a scatterbain.

He graduated Magna cum Numbnuts from the DemProg school of “community organizing”.

From CDC Director Tom Frieden fondly remembered his time as a “community organizer” in a 2012 commencement speech at Oberlin College.

Frieden described misreading a health report which he had to turn upside down to get right. Frieden’s role as a “community organizer” was first reported in the New York Times in a profile.

Containment Is Not Possible, Ebola Is Already Airborne | Dave Hodges – The Common Sense Show

September 13, 2014 1 comment

Containment Is Not Possible, Ebola Is Already Airborne13 Sep, 2014 by Dave Hodges Print this article Font size -16+ ebola burying dead bodiesHealth experts continue to dispute the question of whether or not the Ebola virus disease could mutate to spread in an airborne manner. These experts are dead wrong and this article will demonstrate that Ebola has breached any hope of containment and the virus is indeed airborne and that these facts have been known for sometime.

The Best Case ScenarioThis week, the World Health Organization WHO issued a stern warning that there may be thousands of new and presently undiagnosed cases of Ebola, each week in Sierra Leone, Guinea and Nigeria, which will surface by early October of 2014. A total of 15 countries could be involved in the outbreak and this could put the lives of 22 million people at risk.

These projections by WHO are based on the fact that the present strain of Ebola will remain transmissible through only direct physical contact with bodily fluids and exposure to an infected food supply. The Quiet Voices of Science Express Concern About the Spread of EbolaSome of the nation’s top infectious disease experts worry that one of the deadliest viruses on the planet could mutate and be transmitted just by a mere cough or a sneeze.

Michael Osterholm, the director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy a the University of Minnesota, writing for the New York Times stated that

“The second possibility is one that virologists are loath to discuss openly but are definitely considering in private: that an Ebola virus could mutate to become transmissible through the air“. Yesterday, on September 12, 2012, Osterholm also told CNN that “It’s the single greatest concern I’ve ever had in my 40-year public health career.” Echoing Osterholm,

Dr. David Heymann, professor for the London School of Hygiene of Tropical Medicine, said “It is impossible to predict how any virus will mutate”

.Both Osterholm and Heymann note that virologists are extremely hesitant to discuss the possibility of discussing the possibility and potential for Ebola to become an airborne virus because they are scared to death of being professionally discredited and accused of whipping up hysteria with regard to the dangers posed by the present Ebola outbreak.

However, in private, they both state, that anyone close to the virus are expressing grave fears about this possibility. In fact, Osterholm specifically stated in the New York Times article that … it’s something they are “definitely considering in private.”Osterholm is not merely expressing the fear that Ebola will go airborne based upon a knee-jerk emotional response.

Servando Gonzalez — Servando’s Anti-Anti-American Manifesto… “Is Rall serious about launching a revolution to overthrow the government of the United States? Does he have his pitchfork ready for action? Apparently he has.”

July 11, 2014 1 comment

By Servando GonzalezJuly 11, 2014NewsWithViews.comIn a book titled, The Anti-American Manifesto,[1]

Ted Rall, a cartoonist and contributor to both the New York Pravda a.k.a. the New York Times and Radio Moscow a.k.a. National Public Radio makes a passionate call for a violent revolution as the only way to solve America’s problems — which he compares to the four horsemen of the Apocalypse: wars, financial crises, unemployment, and oil spills.

The book’s editors call it “the most radical book published in decades.”Is Rall serious about launching a revolution to overthrow the government of the United States? Does he have his pitchfork ready for action? Apparently he has.Rall foresees that the chaos that typically ensues after the collapse or overthrow of an empire will surely affect America.

“For the first time since President Richard M. Nixon’s divisive ‘Southern strategy’ that sent whites to the Republican Party and blacks to the Democrats …” began a New York Times story last week.

Thus has one of the big lies of U.S. political history morphed into a cliche — that Richard Nixon used racist politics to steal the South from a Democratic Party battling heroically for civil rights. A brief stroll through Bruce Bartlett’s “Wrong on Race: The Democratic Party’s Buried Past” might better enlighten us……………………………….
