Ebola Obama Infects Secret Service

Update: Obama corporate culture strikes again – Ebola Obama Infects CDC. The Director of the CDC said some remarkably stupid political, not medical, assertions which echo from the Obama refusal to secure the nation’s borders.



The CDC head is as deceptive as Barack Obama:

First, nobody is arguing flights carrying medical personnel should be banned in and out of West Africa. People who argue for flight restrictions are referring to flights that allow anyone from the U.S. to get on a plane and head to Liberia or other countries and then returning after filling out a less than effective medical screening form. The man with the case of Ebola in Dallas isn’t a medical worker, he went over to attend a funeral and after helping a woman sick with the disease and came back to the U.S. anyway. Second, France, England and a slew of Africa countries have either restricted travel or sealed off borders to prevent the disease from spreading.

So how exactly is the CDC screening for Ebola before people leave West Africa for the U.S.? What preventative measures are being taken? As he said in the clip above, “We are doing very good temperature screening.”

All you need to jump over the “very good temperature screening” hurdle is the very cheap and very available Ibuprofen. You would also need to lie. But, No Law Requires People to Tell Airlines They’re Sick.

As we wrote below, Obama sending thousands of American troops to fight Ebola in Africa is dangerous. These troops are not medical personnel. We’ve already seen that even trained medical personnel can contract Ebola despite all the medical “protocols” in place. The wackadoodle-two-headed-dentist has a point: ‘Can You Imagine If a Whole Ship Full of Our Soldiers Catch Ebola?’

Barack Obama said it was “unlikely” to happen here. But it’s here. And Ebola might have spread to D.C. where Obama should be able to see it close up. Michelle might have to trade her cocktail waitress clothes for designer Hazmat outfits. Ebola has already struck Obama protection headquarters MSNBC.

Corporate culture. The CEO is the face of the organization The CEO imbues the organization with the “corporate culture”. What is the corporate culture of the Obama White House?

An example of the Obama corporate culture is that Obama Has Spent More Time Playing Golf Than In Intel Briefings. If your boss doesn’t give a damn, if your boss doesn’t work – why should you? Anyone who has worked in a company about to go under easily comprehends why the Secret Service is in collapse.

Obama corporate culture reflects the lazy, naive, “blame the staff”, “let someone else do the work I only set the direction then go golf”, zero accomplishment on behalf of others history, zero executive experience, spew words unconnected to action, politically correct tampering, politically exploitative pseudo-idealism, self-interested, selfish, bumbling, stumbling, refusal to admit he is in over his head while the ship sinks, know-nothing know-it-all-ism, culture embodied by Barack Obama himself all his life.

Is anyone surprised that those at the greatest proximity to Barack Obama are infected the most by Barack Obama corporate culture? Once one of the most respected of organizations the United States Secret Service is infected by Obama corporate culture.

Obama apologists know that the Obama corporate culture is exposed to the public the more the unraveled mess world-wide continues. The New York Times, knows. The Obama Dimocrats know. Everyone knows that Obama is not up to the job. The worry by these Obama stalwart dead-enders is that the truth is exposed:

Democrats joined in the grilling, and some were as tough as or tougher than any Republican on the Secret Service director, Julia Pierson. But privately, some Democratic officeholders and strategists have complained that the episode contributes to a broader impression that the Obama administration’s competence has come under fire on a variety of fronts, including last year’s botched rollout of Mr. Obama’s health care program, the breakdown of services at the Veterans Affairs Department and the handling of a series of international crises.

Coming just weeks before midterm elections, they said, the intense focus on the matter might further undercut confidence in the government Mr. Obama runs even though it was hardly his fault an intruder with a knife made it into the White House.

This is an opportunity to make it seem like nobody’s in charge in the Obama administration, even though it’s almost certainly not the case that political appointees could have done anything to change the facts in this situation,” said Matt Bennett, a White House aide under President Bill Clinton and now vice president of Third Way, a political group. “I’m not surprised that they’re doing this.” [snip]

“I do think for a lot of Republican congressmen, this is a twofer,” said Erik Smith, a former House Democratic aide and a campaign adviser to Mr. Obama. “The Secret Service may be in the line of fire, but they’re not the only target.”

The focus of the New York Times is to chastise Republicans for investigating the Secret Service failures of late. A felon with a gun in an elevator when Obama visited the CDC? That’s fairly shocking but for the New York Times the focus is to protect Barack Obama from Republicans who are on the job.

After days of strong Obama White House support for the politically correct first woman Secret Service director – appointed to end the earlier Obama White House Secret Service problems – the pink slip arrived today.
Breaking: Pierson resigns.

The Barack Obama corporate culture infects everyone and everything all the way through the bureaucracy:

Navy sailors distrust commanders, fear crippling political correctness

Complain of zero-tolerance disciplinary environment, excessive political correctness

Navy sailors harbor “widespread mistrust” in the admirals who command them, complaining of poor leadership and a disciplinary environment that tolerates absolutely no mistakes, says a survey of the fleet.

The disgruntlement runs deepest in the officer corps, where scores of commanders have been relieved of duty in recent years. [snip]

“What was originally intended to demonstrate accountability to the public has, instead, resulted in a significant breach of trust with our sailors and resulting in an almost ‘reality TV’ mentality.”

The independent survey was released amid complaints by some aviators about excessive political correctness as the military seeks to stamp out sexual harassment and misconduct in an increasingly gender-integrated Navy.

“Most troubling is the perception sailors hold of senior leadership,” the report says under the heading “Widespread Distrust of Senior Leadership.”

“Sailors feel strongly about their distrust of senior leadership, and believe the Navy has a significant risk-averse culture and zero-defect mentality,” the report says.

Instead of doing their jobs sailors are at the equivalent of Human Resources classes on gender studies at sea. A “risk adverse” mentality in the armed forces repudiates American military history from Trenton to Midway. But it is politically correct.

Politically incorrect, we have written that Obama will get us all killed. We’ve also taken to write about “Ebola Obama” because of how no candidate for office wants to be seen with him. But “Ebola Obama” might get us all killed with… Ebola.

Politically correct Barack Obama has sent three thousand military troops to fight Ebola in Africa. This is akin to Caligula sending Roman legions to attack Neptune by stealing seashells by the seashore. Really. Send 3,000 troops to Liberia??? Liberia?

Obama assured us all that Ebola would not erupt in America. Now there is a man from Liberia with Ebola in America. Even Chris O’Tingles notices Obama’s assurances on Ebola are not exactly accurate:

Chris Matthews vs. Ezekiel Emanuel on Ebola: “Obama Said It Was Unlikely. It Has Happened. It’s Here

On MSNBC’s Hardball tonight, host Chris Matthews tussled with Obamacare architect Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel over the how serious a threat Ebola is to Americans. Matthews and Emanuel also spar over President Obama saying it was “unlikely” that an Ebola case would strike the U.S.

“Obama said it was unlikely. It has happened. It’s here,” Matthews said. [snip]

CHRIS MATTHEWS: I’m just trying to follow the logic here. Everybody’s being told, don’t worry unless they have the infectious symptoms, you can see them, that you don’t have to worry about catching them. Yet, this guy picked up the disease apparently from somebody who did not have the infectious symptoms.

DR. EZEKIEL EMANUEL: Again, don’t hypothesize because we just don’t know. We have no idea what he did or didn’t do and how he got it. I’m sure that’s going to be vital information to try to understand the transmission, but the idea that there’s going to be a widespread outbreak here, I think is just, again, it’s a bit of fear mongering. We have a single case. This is not a big, widespread —

MATTHEWS: Yeah, yeah, but I’m just going back to the president’s statement, doctor, and that is that the president said it would be unlikely if we had a case in this country. Unlikely to even have one case. You want to see the tape again?

EMANUEL: He said there wouldn’t be an Ebola outbreak.

MATTHEWS: No, and in the second part of his sentence he said in the unlikely case someone brings it here. In the unlikely case someone brings it here. Well, they’ve done it. We’re living in the world of the unlikely already. That’s all I’m saying. I’m not fear mongering. I’m stating the facts and I wonder if everybody else is. [snip]

MATTHEWS: No, the president said it was unlikely two weeks ago. Well, it’s not the unlikely, it has happened. It’s here.



And the Band Played On. Can’t happen here with only one man infected, right Patient Zero?

Ebola must be fought but the idea of thousands of non-medical personnel sent into the cauldron of Ebola infections appears to be a politically correct exercise and does not seem wise. But few will say so. It’s politically incorrect.

Ebola Obama is protected says Cindy Sheehan. Sheehan was once the left’s icon/goddess due to her protests against George W. Bush and the Iraq war. The left now views Sheehan as Ebola ridden because Sheehan persists with her antiwar protests at a time when the left is only interested in protection of Barack Obama.

Cindy Sheehan calls the left and the leaders of the left as the racists they are:

Sheehan said the left anti war movement is being ignored by the democrats because they are “reverse racists” who are supporting Obama only because he is an African-American.

She said, “I think that there are some people on the so called left, who might say we have to circle our wagons around the first African American president, and to me that is racism in reverse because his policies are actually still the racist policies of empire.”

She’s still a bit of a loon with that “racist policies of empire talk” but her point on Obama’s skin color as the main motivational factor in support for him from the left is on target. The left makes the judgment of a person based on skin color and that is the rankest form of racism. Hate for someone’s actions based on skin color is racist. Admiration for someone’s actions based on skin color is also racist. The left is racist and hypocritical and ultimately self-destructive.

But the left does not care about it’s hypocrisies nor it’s racism. All it cares about is protection of Ebola Obama. But Ebola Obama kills. As the Left is about to find out. In the House, in the Senate, in the statehouses.

Ebola Obama kills.

    No one who was paying attention should be surprised that it would end up this way. His career history of avoiding problems by voting present, his affiliation with Reverend Wright, and his description of the role he would play as president in the debates–as a ceo who gives direction, not a coo who runs the operation says it all. To repeat, no one who was paying attention will be surprised

  4. Eric, the Ebola patient…quite a different picture. He knew he was exposed, big time…he came here to seek medical help..make no mistake about that…he won’t be the last!

    From ACE
    ________________________________________________

    Our patient’s name appears to be Thomas Eric Duncan of Liberia. Check out Bryan Preston’s brief rundown of the NY Times article.

    He came into direct contact with a friend who had Ebola. He rode with her in a taxi and carried her from the taxi to a hospital on September 15, four days before he flew to the United States. She was turned away from the hospital because the Ebola ward was full.
    She died of Ebola early the following morning. Her brother also got sick and shows Ebola symptoms. That was at the same time that Duncan started getting sick. He left Liberia and arrived in Texas on September 20. Six days later he sought treatment at Texas Presbyterian Hospital, and was sent home. He returned two days later, and has been confirmed to be infected with Ebola.

    Duncan also abruptly quit his job on September 4, so he might have already planned the trip to see his family in the U.S.

    But he certainly knew that he had been exposed to Ebola by the time he boarded that plane and came to Texas, four days after his friend died of it. He must surely have known it when he first visited the Texas Presbyterian Hospital, and he must have known it when the doctors sent him home.

    Let that sink in: he knew he’d been exposed, and it’s not unfair to deduce that he thought to himself, “the Americans will save me”.

    We’ll get back to that in a moment, as there’s more fun. Via Reuters:

    Two days after he was sent home from a Dallas hospital, the man who is the first person to be diagnosed with Ebola in the United States was seen vomiting on the ground outside an apartment complex as he was bundled into an ambulance.
    “His whole family was screaming. He got outside and he was throwing up all over the place,” resident Mesud Osmanovic, 21, said on Wednesday, describing the chaotic scene before the man was admitted to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital on Sunday where he is in serious condition.

    The priority is to keep the southern border open no matter the cost in lives.

    The head of the Secret Service quit because she failed to protect the White House. When will CDC Director/Obama appointee Thomas Frieden be resigning for failing to protect the US?

    I called the CDC yesterday and talked to one of their Ebola spokespeople.

    1. She could provide no links to scientific literature discussing at what point people exposed to Ebola become contagious, despite Frieden and others constantly claiming only symptomatic patients can transfer the virus. This after she searched their medical library database for approx. five minutes.

    2. The CDC masthead says “CDC 24/7, protecting people, saving lives”. I asked her if their mission is to protect US citizens (since that’s who pays them) or if they had decided they give every person on earth equal weight. She declined to answer. I finally got her to make a declarative statement – “It’s both.”

    3. I asked her since the CDC is not stopping people infected with Ebola from entering the US, what steps the CDC was taking to ensure that Ebola did not become resident in US wildlife, causing an endless series of outbreaks as occurs in Africa, and if it did happen, what did CDC plan to do to clean up their mess. She was not aware of any discussions along those lines.

    The priority is to keep the southern border open no matter the cost in lives.

  7. This is a freakin’ joke…

    White House press secretary Josh Earnest told reporters today that, after the Ebola case in Dallas, the Obama administration reminded border law enforcment agencies of “protocol” to deal with people that appear to have symptoms of Ebola. Earnest also said that there “are screening procedures in place at our border.”

    [Really, what kind of medical experts are waiting at our border – ready, able and willing to stop Ebola from entering America??? Do they have mini clinics set up or just ask people if they are sick from the disease?]

    “In light of this incident,” Earnest said at his daily briefing, “the administration has taken the step of recirculating our guidance to law enforcement agencies that are responsible for securing the border, to those agencies that represent individuals who staff the airline industry, and to medical professionals all across the country to make sure that people are aware that there is an important protocol that should be implemented if an individual presents with symptoms that are consistent with Ebola.”

    The statement came up in addressing the Dallas case, as the person infected there reportedly had been traveling in Africa.

    “It’s my understanding that the individual in Dallas who has been hospitalized with Ebola is somebody who did recently travel to the United States from West Africa,” Earnest said.

    “Again, according to those medical professionals, this individual was not displaying any symptoms, was not experiencing any symptoms while he was traveling. That means there is no risk to the individuals who were traveling with that person.

    “So there are protocols in place where those individuals who are leaving West Africa and traveling to the West are screened. While we’ve also provided guidance to pilots, flight attendants and others who make up the — who are sort of responsible for staffing our transportation infrastructure, we’ve given them guidance for monitoring the health and well being of travelers to ensure that if they notice individuals who are exhibiting symptoms that seem to be consistent with Ebola, that the proper authorities are notified.

    http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/wh-we-reminded-border-agents-protocol-after-ebola-case_808448.html

    The Administration lays the responsibility of screening, ‘protecting the borders’ and reporting the Ebola victims to everyone else except the pResident and his gangsters.

    This means we are in deep $hit!

  14. Caught something on NBC’s morning show: the one official ebola victim was running FROM Ebola. Turns out he had more than a close call – he helped carry a woman dying of the disease while still in Libya. Some details:

    U.S. Patient Aided Pregnant Liberian, Then Took Ill
    Liberian Officials Identify Ebola Victim in Texas as Thomas Eric Duncan
    Mr. Duncan, the first person to develop symptoms outside Africa during the current epidemic, had direct contact with a woman stricken by Ebola on Sept. 15, just four days before he left Liberia for the United States, the woman’s parents and Mr. Duncan’s neighbors said. Snip She was convulsing and seven months pregnant, they said. Turned away from a hospital for lack of space in its Ebola treatment ward, the family said it took Ms. Williams back home in the evening, and that she died hours later, around 3 a.m.Snip “He was holding her by the legs, the pa was holding her arms and Sonny Boy was holding her back,” said Arren Seyou, 31, who witnessed the scene and occupies the room next to Mr. Duncan’s.
    Sonny Boy, 21, also started getting sick about a week ago, his family said, around the same time that Mr. Duncan first started showing symptoms.
    In a sign of how furiously the disease can spread, an ambulance had come to their house on Wednesday to pick up Sonny Boy. Another ambulance picked up a woman and her daughter from the same area, and a team of body collectors came to retrieve the body of yet another woman — all four appeared to have been infected in a chain reaction started by Marthalene Williams.
    A few minutes after the ambulance left, the parents got a call telling them that Sonny Boy had died on the way to the hospital. Snip

  15. The impossible could happen:

    http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/booker-bell-really-5-point-race_808457.html

    Booker-Bell Really a 5-Point Race

    The new Quinnipiac poll of the New Jersey Senate contest shows Jeff Bell only 11 points down to Cory Booker, 51 to 40 percent, among likely voters. It goes without saying that a race can move a dozen points in the final five weeks of a campaign—especially when a little known challenger (but one who’s well-regarded by those who do know of him) is taking on a pro-Obama incumbent who’s barely above 50 percent in an anti-Obama, anti-incumbent year. (Obama’s approval in New Jersey is hovering around 41 percent.)

    But take a further look at the poll results. Booker leads Bell, 51-40. Seventy-six percent of Booker supporters and 84 percent of Bell supporters say their mind is made up. Do the math. Among those whose mind is made up, Booker leads Bell 39 to 34 percent.

    So Booker’s hard lead over Bell is a mere 5 points. He’ll outspend Bell over the next month. But money can’t buy you love. Sometimes, it can’t even buy you votes. If New Jersey flips in November, we’ll remember this Quinnipiac poll as Jeff Bell’s fire bell in the night.

  16. The impossible could happen:

    http://www.cnn.com/2014/10/02/health/ebola-us/index.html

    Dallas (CNN) — Health officials are reaching out to as many as 100 people who may have had contact with the first Ebola patient diagnosed in the U.S., a spokeswoman with the Texas Department of State Health Services said Thursday.

    These are people who are still being questioned because they may have crossed paths with the patient either at the hospital, at his apartment complex or in the community.[snip]

    The number of direct contacts who have been identified and are being monitored right now is “more than 12,” a federal official told CNN on Thursday.

    “By the end of the day, we should have a pretty good idea of how many contacts there are,” the official said.

    This contradicts what Dallas County Health and Human Services spokeswoman Erikka Neroes said earlier Thursday. Neroes said 80 people — the patient’s contacts, plus people with whom they had contact — were being monitored for Ebola in the Dallas area. [snip]

    While Duncan remains in serious but stable condition at a Dallas hospital, two things are still spreading: fear and frustration. Some parents are scared to take their kids to the schools that his girlfriend’s children attended.

    Others are upset at the hospital where Duncan first sought care, which sent him home and raised the possibility he could infect others for at least two additional days. [snip]

    Dallas Independent School District Superintendent Mike Miles said the patient came in contact with five students who attended four different schools in the area. [snip]

    On September 24, four days after he arrived in Dallas from Liberia, Duncan started feeling symptoms. That day is significant because that’s when he started being contagious.[snip]

    And one of Duncan’s friends said he was the one who contacted the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention with concerns that the hospital wasn’t moving quickly enough after Duncan’s second hospital visit. [snip]

    Duncan’s contacts will be monitored for 21 days — the longest amount of time it takes for Ebola symptoms to show up.

    If any of Duncan’s contacts show symptoms, they will be isolated.[snip]

    But if one of those contacts ends up having Ebola, the tedious processes of tracking and monitoring a web of contacts would have to start all over again.

    Exponential possibilities.

  17. The impossible could happen:

    http://www.politico.com/story/2014/10/obamacare-supreme-court-111536.html?hp=l4

    The U.S. Supreme Court will begin its new term Monday and, once again, Obamacare could be on the docket.

    The justices have been asked to weigh in on whether the Affordable Care Act’s subsidies can go to any American, regardless of whether their state runs a health insurance exchange or relies on the federal one. They’ll soon be asked, too, whether religious nonprofits have to provide contraception in employee health plans, a follow-up to last spring’s Hobby Lobby case.

    And there is a third, very long-shot issue in the wings: whether the health care legislation was a tax bill that under the Constitution had to start in the House of Representatives instead of the Senate.

  18. Not impossible, but probable:

    http://washingtonexaminer.com/it-looks-like-a-gop-wave-the-question-is-how-far-it-goes/article/2554246

    It looks like a GOP wave; the question is how far it goes

    What may have happened is this: Over the summer Democrats used their money advantage to savage Republican opponents. When spending got equalized in September, Republicans’ numbers rose.

    So Republicans retain big leads to pick up three open seats in states carried by Mitt Romney —West Virginia, Montana and South Dakota. Republican nominees have moved ahead of three Democratic incumbents in Romney states (Alaska, Arkansas, and Louisiana) and in two target states carried by President Obama (Colorado and Iowa).

    Only in North Carolina, which Romney narrowly carried, has the Republican not yet overtaken the incumbent Democrat Sen. Kay Hagan — and her edge is narrowing in the most recent polls.

    Psephologists used to have a rule that incumbents running below 50 percent against lesser known challengers would inevitably lose. Everyone knows them, the logic went, and half aren’t voting for them.

    That rule doesn’t seem to apply anymore, but perhaps another one does. The RealClearPolitics average of recent polls puts Democratic incumbents in these five states at 41 to 44 percent of the vote.

    In seriously contested races in the last six Senate cycles, starting with 2002, only two incumbents polling at that level in September ended up winning. One was appointed to an open seat and thus probably not widely known. Both ended up with less than 50 percent and won by plurality.[snip]

    It’s noteworthy when well-informed analysts give a party a better than even chance of making a net gain of six Senate seats, as they have throughout this cycle. I can’t remember consensus predictions of six-Senate-seat gains in 1974, 1980, 1994 or 2006 — all now regarded as wave years. [snip]

    Early in the 2010 cycle, Barack Obama told an Arkansas House Democrat that he needn’t worry about voters because “you’ve got me.” Today all four Arkansas House seats are held by Republicans. Democratic Senate candidates in multiple states have been shunning Obama campaign appearances.

    We’re watching a wave come in. We just can’t be sure how far it goes.

    This enraged the President, who demanded a
    full investigation.

    After a month of testing and $1.73 million
    in congressional spending, a special Presidential commission presented the
    following findings:

    Finally, the wet dream of every bot and 99% of big media has been memorialized in a new stamp with Obama’s mug on it staring off into the distance in a state of semi divine repose along with the word change in big bold letters emblazoned vertically down the left side of the stamp, a triumph of radical revolutionary art which would have inspired Che Guervera, Pot Paul, Mao, and other estimable personages of the past who forged a similarly destructive path. Such a sweet man, say the blue haired old ladies with 24 carrot diamond rings, such a mench say the angry young men who never grew up, such a seminal figure say the civil rights establishment hucksters, such a perfect shill to bamboozle the masses while we steal their money say the crony capitalists, and such a splendid product of our elitist education say the Harvard alums who feel that his presidency has elevated their personal status to catastrophic heights from which the only way is down.

    Just for shits and giggles, Obama commissioned a staff of trust fund babies and non profit butt wipes to praise his work, which they did lavishly, but somewhere between his pedigree past, their unanimous vote of confidence, and its publication a bitch jumped over the wall. And the result: the following recommendations:

    1. The stamp is in perfect order.

    2. There is nothing wrong with the glue.

    3. People are spitting on the wrong side.

    How about the remittance man from Africa gives good old barcrack banana a good, unhealthy French kiss, following which he can tell us again that the chances of EPOLA entering this country are unlikely. How unlikely? As unlikely as a junior varsity squad like ISIS becoming a threat in the middle east.

  20. Fortunately, we have got Zeke Emanuel to war off Ebola. After his boffo performance on Obamacare, and now his bland assurances that our containment strategies of the CDC are bullet proof, I am very worried. Next to Messiah Obama, his track record for predictions is the worst in Washington. Seldom right. Never in doubt. None of this would have happened if big media had not betrayed the American People. And while there are degrees of culpability within their ranks, all of them are guilty as charged. An ambitious prosecutor would indict the whole lot of them, offer them deals to rat each other out, and see where the buck stops. Certainly Zuckerman, Leslie Moonves–and their attorneys would be among the prime targets.

  21. Another culprit would be the former editor of the New York Times, Bill Kelleher, who is the son of the head of one of the giant oil companies, who protects his class, distorts the truth and never let a little thing like the truth stand in the way of his bullshit.

  22. Political Ebola:

    http://www.truthrevolt.org/news/father-isis-social-media-guru-still-president-islamic-elementary-school-us

    Father Of ISIS Social Media Guru Still President Of Islamic Elementary School In US

    Ahmed’s father, Abdulbadi Abousamra, has served as a president or board member of several mosques, Islamic schools, and Muslim political organizations in Massachusetts from the mid-1990s, and is still the president of an Islamic elementary school.

    The revelation that Boston-area fugitive Ahmad Abousamra is running the Islamic State’s (ISIS) sophisticated social media propaganda campaign casts light on the leadership of a complex of radical mosques in and around the Greater Boston area. According to information obtained during litigation discovery and provided by Boston Muslims who asked not to be identified out of fear for their physical safety, Ahmad Abousamra is deeply connected to the top Muslim community leaders in Boston.

    Ahmad’s father, Abdulbadi Abousamra (Abousamra Sr.), has served as a president or board member of several mosques, Islamic schools, and Muslim political organizations in Massachusetts from the mid-1990s. In fact, he is still the president of an Islamic elementary school in Sharon, MA. Abousamra Sr. had used his leadership position in multiple Boston Islamic institutions to import extremist and terrorist-affiliated imams into Boston. One of these imams, Hafiz Masood, appears to be the one who radicalized his son, Ahmad Abousamra (Abousamra Jr.).

    Until 2007, when Abousamra Jr. was first questioned by the FBI over a plot to provide assistance to Al Qaeda in Iraq and to massacre shoppers at the Emerald Square Mall in North Attleboro, MA, his father, Abousamra Sr., was vice-president of the Boston branch of the Muslim American Society (MAS Boston). According to federal authorities, the Muslim American Society was created to be “the overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in America.” MAS Boston operates the largest Islamic center in the Northeast, the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center (ISBCC). The Boston Marathon bombers attended the ISBCC’s sister mosque in Cambridge. Both mosques have a long history of Islamic extremism and terrorism. [snip]

    Even though Abousamra Sr. left the country shortly after the FBI put a bounty on his son, he is still the president of the Islamic Academy of New England.

    In 1998, Abousamra Sr. hired Mohammed Hafiz Masood to be the new Imam at the Islamic Center of New England and a teacher at the Islamic Academy of New England. At that time, Masood was in the United States illegally.

    Masood quickly began to clash with the moderate members of the community over the extremist ideology he was teaching their children. Masood told one child, whose father was Egyptian but whose mother was Jewish that he won’t get into heaven unless he disowns his mother. The couple pulled their son out of the school. According to another mosque member, Masood told his eight-year-old nephew that Americans are “Shataan [Satan] and will not go to paradise because they don’t do prayers.” This mosque member insists that:

    “In my view, this type of talks to young generations is creating hate towards the U.S. and its people, which include us too. He is brainwashing young kids with material that has nothing to do with Islamic teaching.”

    Yet another mosque member claimed that Masood and Abousamra Sr. “were making eight-year-old, seven-year-old girls wear hijab [head scarf], and they were making young boys go and talk to these girls [if they weren’t wearing a head scarf], so there was indoctrination.”

    Moderate Muslims in Boston who spoke out against Abousamra Sr. and his fellow extremists were often intimidated or directly assaulted. According to one of the victimized Muslim community members, Abousamra Sr. had a former convict who converted to Islam in prison hang around the mosque and threaten those who objected to Abousamra Sr.’s ideology.

    “They’ll beat you up,” he said. [snip]

    Masood is the brother of Pakistani terrorist Hafiz Saeed, who founded and runs Lashkar-e-Taibah (LeT), one of the largest and most violent terrorist groups in Pakistan, and who has a $10 million FBI bounty on his head. Saeed’s terror group is responsible for the 2008 Mumbai massacre, which targeted India over the conflict in Kashmir and left 166 people dead. A Boston Muslim community member claims that while living in Massachusetts, Masood “has stated many times in closed gatherings that, ‘I used to go to Kashmir and kill people and come back,’ and that was why he was a hero to many people.”

    Ban Travel from Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea—Now

    Why is anyone from Liberia, Sierra Leone, or Guinea — the source of the Ebola outbreak — being permitted to enter the United States?

    The Liberian Ebola victim in Dallas seems to have used a visitor visa to travel here “to visit family members.” The idea that we allow people from those countries to board planes for the U.S. so long as they don’t have a fever is absurd. There are more than 13,000 people from those three countries with visas to enter the U.S. Here’s a list of African countries with travel restrictions on Ebola-affected countries — what’s our problem?

    I’ll tell you our problem: Much of our political class is simply uncomfortable with the idea that border and immigration controls should be used vigorously and unapologetically to protect Americans. You can hear the objections now: It would be xenophobic, it might stigmatize West Africans, those countries will object to our State Department that they’re being discriminated against.

    The Dallas paper headlined a story today “Ebola’s arrival in U.S. was inevitable, experts say,” which included this bit:

    Dr. Edward Goodman, hospital epidemiologist at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital, said he was not surprised that the Ebola virus came to his doorstep, given the number of cases in Africa.

    There is “plenty of opportunity for people to fly over and come to any part of the United States,” he told reporters Tuesday.

    Only if we allow it.

  24. This White House and its media organs are desperately trying to condition the public into accepting a pandemic as passively as possible. Calmly and blandly stating there will be other people entering the US with zero interference from our government may not go over the way they hope it will. Elections are a month away and may be a perfect way to express fury.

  25. Obama shafted the Dem midterms today in 28 words……these have the Dems fleeing for the hills…..

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-fix/wp/2014/10/02/28-words-that-democrats-really-wish-president-obama-didnt-say-today/

    Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech):

    “I am not on the ballot this fall. Michelle’s pretty happy about that. But make no mistake: these policies are on the ballot. Every single one of them.” Boil those four sentences down even further and here’s what you are left with: “Make no mistake: these policies are on the ballot. Every single one of them.”

    Apparently Senior Dems shit themselves in disbelief at how he has shafted the Dem narrative for Nov. they can no longer distance themselves.

    Leon Panetta: How the White House Misplayed Iraqi Troop Talks

    Leon Panetta served as the director of the Central Intelligence Agency from 2009 to 2011, and as secretary of defense from 2011 to 2013.

    As U.S. forces return to Iraq to counter the surging al-Qaeda splinter group Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria, President Obama’s former Secretary of Defense and CIA chief recalls the White House debates that led to America’s departure from the country. His new book, with Jim Newton, Worthy Fights: A Memoir of Leadership in War and Peace, from which this article is adapted, will be published on Oct. 7.

    Through the fall of 2011, the main question facing the American military in Iraq was what our role would be now that combat operations were over. When President Obama announced the end of our combat mission in August 2010, he acknowledged that we would maintain troops for a while. Now that the deadline was upon us, however, it was clear to me—and many others—that withdrawing all our forces would endanger the fragile stability then barely holding Iraq together.

    Privately, the various leadership factions in Iraq all confided that they wanted some U.S. forces to remain as a bulwark against sectarian violence. But none was willing to take that position publicly, and Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki concluded that any Status of Forces Agreement, which would give legal protection to those forces, would have to be submitted to the Iraqi parliament for approval. That made reaching agreement very difficult given the internal politics of Iraq, but representatives of the Defense and State departments, with scrutiny from the White House, tried to reach a deal.

    We had leverage. We could, for instance, have threatened to withdraw reconstruction aid to Iraq if al-Maliki would not support some sort of continued U.S. military presence. My fear, as I voiced to the President and others, was that if the country split apart or slid back into the violence that we’d seen in the years immediately following the U.S. invasion, it could become a new haven for terrorists to plot attacks against the U.S. Iraq’s stability was not only in Iraq’s interest but also in ours. I privately and publicly advocated for a residual force that could provide training and security for Iraq’s military.

    Under Secretary of Defense Michèle Flournoy did her best to press that position, which reflected not just my views but also those of the military commanders in the region and the Joint Chiefs. But the President’s team at the White House pushed back, and the differences occasionally became heated. Flournoy argued our case, and those on our side viewed the White House as so eager to rid itself of Iraq that it was willing to withdraw rather than lock in arrangements that would preserve our influence and interests.

    We debated with al-Maliki even as we debated among ourselves, with time running out. The clock wound down in December, and Deputy Secretary of Defense Ash Carter continued to argue our case, extending the deadline for the Iraqis to act, hoping that we might pull out a last-minute agreement and recognizing that once our forces left, it would be essentially impossible for them to turn around and return. To my frustration, the White House coordinated the negotiations but never really led them. Officials there seemed content to endorse an agreement if State and Defense could reach one, but without the President’s active advocacy, al-Maliki was allowed to slip away. The deal never materialized. To this day, I believe that a small U.S. troop presence in Iraq could have effectively advised the Iraqi military on how to deal with al-Qaeda’s resurgence and the sectarian violence that has engulfed the country.

    Over the following two and a half years, the situation in Iraq slowly deteriorated. Al-Maliki was responsible, as he exacerbated the deep sectarian issues polarizing his country. Meanwhile, with the conflict in Syria raging, an al-Qaeda offshoot—ISIS, or the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria—gained strength. Using Syria as its base, it began to move into Iraq in 2014, grabbing power in towns and villages across Iraq’s north, including Mosul and Tall ‘Afar. These were strategically important cities that U.S. forces had fought and died to secure.

    The news from Iraq bothered me to no end. In my view, the ISIS offensive in 2014 greatly increases the risk that Iraq will become al-Qaeda’s next safe haven. That is exactly what it had in Afghanistan pre-9/11. After all we have done to decimate al-Qaeda’s senior leadership and its core, those efforts will be for naught if we allow it to rebuild a base of operations in the Middle East.

    (i understand why she would want Crist over Scott in the governor’s office in Florida…but what an awful choice between Crist and Scott…horrible, both of them)

    Hillary, my dear…the best push you could make to help women in leadership rolls- is to boldly toss your hat into the ring…right after the November election!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Put that orange pantsuit back on and tell voters you are BACK in the race for the WhiteHouse.

  29. Whoops….Dem leaders out for Harry Reids head…..

    http://freebeacon.com/politics/reid-roasted-at-private-democratic-fundraiser/

    A $1,000-per-plate fundraiser with Democratic Sen. Mark Pryor (Ark.) turned into an anti-Harry Reid gripe fest last month, after one donor blamed the majority leader for the Senate’s poor public approval ratings and said the idea of him leading the institution was laughable.

    “If you asked a thousand Americans, is this the guy who’s best positioned to lead the U.S. Senate, people would laugh at you,” said the donor, according to another attendee and a recording of the event obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

    Pryor was speaking at an invitation-only fundraiser in New York to benefit the Democrats for Education Reform Federal PAC on Sept. 21.

    During the discussion, an attendee began criticizing Reid, telling Pryor that the Democratic leader held some responsibility for the low approval rating of Congress.

    “Let me just interrupt,” Pryor said, according to an audio recording that was corroborated by an attendee. “I think possibly the best thing that could happen … to this institution, this election cycle would be if [Senate Minority Leader] Mitch McConnell gets beat and Harry Reid gets replaced.”

    The rest of Pryor’s comment is drowned out by clapping. A spokesperson for the Pryor campaign did not respond to requests to confirm this statement or questions about his opinion on Reid’s leadership role.

    “Okay, so you made my question a lot easier,” the attendee told Pryor. “I agree with you 100 percent, because I think there’s a big, forget about partisanship and [inaudible], there’s a generational issue. I just don’t think Harry Reid is in touch with what is happening in modern America on education, the economy, all of these things.”

    He went on to ask Pryor who would be the best option to succeed Reid as majority leader.

    Pryor suggested Sen. Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.), saying he “does a pretty darn good job there in the Senate, and he’s actually, he’s not this crazy wild-eyed, left wing liberal either.”

    The senator also had favorable words for Sen. Mark Begich (D., Alaska).

    “I think Begich is really strong,” said Pryor. “You know, he’s green, he’s just running for his first reelection.”

  30. Here in Florida, Scott has been a nightmare. Robbing our schools for tax breaks for his chronies and throwing environmental protections in the trash (literally). But the Christ/Obama love affair has me worried as it not only means we might not get rid of Scott, but that if we do, we will get alot of failed Obamacrap.

    Christ needs to lose his Obamalove and jump on the Hillary bus, fast.

    Hillary’s ‘grandmother glow’ from Charlotte is ‘fueling her campaign’…for global female empowerment

    The possible 2016 Democratic presidential candidate was speaking to a group of female real estate professionals in Miami
    Clinton said she wanted all women to grow up in a world of ‘full participation and shared prosperity’ at the event
    Clinton has repeatedly hit those themes as she travels the campaign trail to help Democrats in the midterm elections

    As she weighs another bid for the White House, Hillary Rodham Clinton said Thursday she has a ‘grandmother glow’ that’s fueling her campaign for female empowerment and gender equality around the world.

    Speaking to a national convention of female real estate professionals, the former secretary of state and potential 2016 Democratic presidential contender called on business and political leaders to close the gap in wages and leadership positions between men and women.

    Clinton, who joked that she felt that glow after the recent birth of her first grandchild, Charlotte, said she wanted all women to grow up in a world of ‘full participation and shared prosperity.’

    Gushing about Charlotte: On Wednesday, Hillary spoke highly at a businesswomen’s event of the effect her new granddaughter has had on her. Here, Clinton speaks before receiving a Lifetime Service Award on Wednesday from a national nonprofit organization that cares for families of America’s fallen soldiers.

    ‘I think my granddaughter has just as much God-given potential as a boy who was born in that hospital on the same day,’ she said.

    In a speech that drew heavily on her own professional and personal experiences — including several references to her bruising presidential campaign in 2008 — Clinton said women face double standards in business and politics and that governments should work to enact policies that break down barriers to equal opportunity. Her remarks were met with standing ovations.

    ‘These ceilings I’m describing don’t just keep down women, they hold back entire economies and countries,’ she said, ‘because no country can truly thrive by denying the contributions of half of its people.’

    Clinton has repeatedly hit those themes as she travels the campaign trail to help Democrats in the midterm elections. On Thursday, she said the U.S. should eliminate what she called the ‘motherhood penalty’ by requiring paid leave for new mothers. The measure, she said, would pave the way for more women to participate in the workforce.

    Female empowerment: Speaking to a national convention of female real estate professionals, new grandmother and potential 2016 Democratic presidential contender called on business and political leaders to close the gap in wages and leadership positions between men and women

    ‘Laws matter,’ Clinton said. ‘I believe 100 percent in women being able to make responsible choices, but it’s hardly a choice if you’re working at a low-wage job, you get no leave and you can’t even afford to bond with your baby because you have to get back to work.’

    Clinton was also in South Florida to promote her book about her tenure as the nation’s top diplomat and to help Democrat Charlie Crist raise money for his gubernatorial campaign. Crist, a former Republican governor, is locked in a tight race with GOP Gov. Rick Scott, who has outspent the Democratic nominee by a 2-1 margin in television advertising.

    Clinton has said she expects to make a decision on a White House bid by the beginning of next year. The appearances help increase her exposure to voters in the nation’s largest swing-voting state and allow her to reconnect with some of the same big-money donors who supported her and her husband’s past political campaigns.

  38. The infected, being taken care of in America…keep mounting.

    NBC News Freelancer in Africa Diagnosed with Ebola
    An American freelance cameraman working for NBC News in Liberia has tested positive for Ebola and will be flown back to the United States for treatment.

    The infected freelancer was hired Tuesday to be a second cameraman for NBC News Chief Medical Editor and Correspondent Dr. Nancy Snyderman. Snyderman is with three other NBC News employees on assignment in Monrovia, reporting on the Ebola outbreak.

    The freelancer came down with symptoms on Wednesday, feeling tired and achy. As part of a routine temperature check, he discovered he was running a slight fever. He immediately quarantined himself and sought medical advice. On Thursday morning, the 33 year-old American went to a Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) treatment center to be tested for the virus. The positive result came back just under 12 hours later.

    “The good news is this young man, our colleague, was admitted very, very early,” Snyderman told Rachel Maddow Thursday evening. “He’s in good spirits.”

    Snyderman added she and the other members of the NBC News team are feeling well and not showing symptoms of the Ebola virus but are going beyond CDC guidelines for their and others’ safety.

    The cameraman, who also is a writer, is the fourth American to have contracted Ebola in Liberia. He has been working in Liberia on various projects for the past three years. NBC News is withholding the cameraman’s name at the request of his family.

    “We are doing everything we can to get him the best care possible. He will be flown back to the United States for treatment at a medical center that is equipped to handle Ebola patients,” NBC News President Deborah Turness said in a note to staff.

    “We are also taking all possible measures to protect our employees and the general public,” Turness added in the note. “The rest of the crew, including Dr. Nancy, are being closely monitored and show no symptoms or warning signs. However, in an abundance of caution, we will fly them back on a private charter flight and then they will place themselves under quarantine in the United States for 21 days – which is at the most conservative end of the spectrum of medical guidance.”

    American aid workers Dr. Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebol were infected in July while working for Samaritan’s Purse in Monrovia. Last month, Dr. Rick Sacra was diagnosed with the virus after working at a local hospital in Liberia. A U.S. physician who had been working for the World Health Organization and who has not been named is being treated at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta. Liberian national Thomas Eric Duncan is currently being treated for Ebola at a hospital in Dallas, TX. In addition, a U.S. physician who was exposed to Ebola in Sierra Leone is under observation at the National Institutes of Health.

    Bumbles sending the right people to Africa is not a bad thing, and that is a big IF. USAMRIID along with the CDC in Africa is the correct combination as those are the only real world class organizations with the know how and capacity to deal with the outbreak. I actually can’t find any stories to say that those are the troops that bumbles is sending. So Shadow, if you see a story like that identifying which troops he is thinking about sending, could you post it please? Also, how are these Americans catching this disease? I understand the medical staff, but what about the two others? This cameraman is a real conundrum. One must assume the entire media team is together most of the time, so how did only one of them come down with the disease?

    There are a number of questions that really need to be addressed very quickly.

    The United States will send troops, material to build field hospitals, additional health care workers, community care kits and badly needed medical supplies.

    He has lived in Liberia for three years and was hired by NBC the day before he developed symptoms. The fact that this man got infected, however, makes one think that the virus may be a bit easier to “catch” than the wishful thinking that is being presented as “facts” by the experts.

    Hillary 2016

  43. Panetta’s book criticizes Obama’s “hesitation and half-steps”, and discusses the fact that his and Hillary’s recommendations had less influence on Barack than did the recommendations of other, less experienced staff.

    The title of the book, is Worthy Choices – interesting. Hillary’s book was entitled Hard Choices. Looks like the old Clinton loyals are helping her with the distancing process.

    Panetta Slams Obama for ‘Hesitation and Half Steps’ on Syria

    In a forthcoming book, obtained by The Daily Beast, the former CIA director and defense secretary Leon Panetta blames the White House for screwups from Syria to Afghanistan.

    The president’s White House staff was controlling, insular, and often ignored the advice of its senior national security officials, former Defense Secretary and CIA Director Leon Panetta charges in his yet-to-be-released memoir. The result, Panetta says: botched U.S. policies from Syria to Iraq to Afghanistan.

    Panetta—whose new book, Worthy Choices, is set to be released Oct. 7—is particularly tough on his former boss on the issue of Syria. (A copy of the book was obtained by The Daily Beast.) President Obama had called the use of chemical weapons there a “red line.” So when the Syrian military used chemical weapons in August 2013 to kill an estimated 1,400 people, Obama decided to strike. But then the president abruptly reversed himself—without consulting his national security Cabinet members.

    The U.S. eventually secured an agreement to hold off on any attacks in exchange for Assad handing over his chemical weapons. But that deal was a mistake, according to Panetta.

    “The result, I felt, was a blow to American credibility. When the president as commander in chief draws a red line, it is critical that he act if the line is crossed. The power of the United States rests on its word,” he wrote. “Assad’s action clearly defied President Obama’s warning; by failing to respond, it sent the wrong message to the world.”

    Panetta also noted that Obama overruled him and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton when the president decided not to arm the Syrian rebels—an admittedly risky proposition—in 2012. The current ghastly situation in Syria shows the results of the White House’s policy, he wrote.

    “Hesitation and half steps have consequences as well—and those remain to be determined,” Panetta said.

    Throughout the book, Panetta repeats that senior White House staffers, such as National Security Advisor Tom Donilon, then-Counterterrorism Advisor John Brennan, and Deputy National Security Advisor Dennis McDonough (who later became Chief of Staff) had more influence and control over national security policy than senior officials such as him and Secretary of State Hillary Clinto.

    Fired Up Obama to Immigration Activists:

    ‘No Force On Earth Can Stop Us’

    ——————
    Notice how the rhetoric has gotten more and more florid, and floridly delusional as the November elections approach, and this is only the beginning. This is par for the course for a man who fails to foresee any risk to the nation, and tells us not to worry about it, because he will protect us, and then walks away, does nothing and it happens. Meanwhile big media praises him initially and when he fails to perform loses interest. The problem with some risks–like ISIS and now even more salient the Ebola virus, their lofty exalted elitist status will not protect them, so they too are at risk when he talks the talk but never walks the walk. No-force-on-earth-can-stop-US. So who is us? And stop us from doing what? Whatever what is will never match the inflamed rhetoric we are seeing now, and the over the top promises of communists like Guterrez to his illegal constitutents. Obama needs to ratchet up the rhetoric however, because he has made similar promises in the past and left the promoters of illegal immigration standing at the alter. After those choice words, one can only speculate on what he will do for an encore. Perhaps he will expand the scope of his promise–and the corresponding multi-level threat it represents to law abiding citizens of this nation from the earth to the universe–as in no force in the universe no astroid, no alien, no god can stop us from burying this nation with high rent illegals to satisfy the only people that count to Obama—the 1%.

  47. Spot on Wbboei.
    It reminded me of “They can’t stop us” regarding Obamacare. I’ve no idea where he said it, but Drudge had it as part of a left front headline cluster. That was captured by OneNote, and I’ve referred to it frequently. So although it is similar, the current proclamation is higher and your ruminations about likely results are practicality laced with humor.

    Related. Have you come across this? So far US media is just intent on putting squeeze on the TX hospital. But
    snip The Liberian authorities say they will prosecute the man diagnosed with Ebola in the US, accusing him of lying over his contact with an infected relative.
    When he left the country last month, Liberian national Thomas Eric Duncan filled in a questionnaire saying that none of his relatives were sick.

    I’m curious, with the staff that you had to lay off because of the ObamaCare costs, who does the work of those people that you laid off? Do you take less clients to cut back on the work load?
    ===================================================================

    Yes. I am working harder now at almost 52 than I was when I was an associate 26 years ago putting in close to 60 hrs a week at a large firm. At a time I should be able to delegate and do less, it has become apparent that in order to maintain my current income, I will need to do more with less. Moreover, long time salaried employees are asked to do more and I cannot reward them with any substantial raise, but no one is leaving a 45-60k administrative or secretarial position in this economy, but it promotes bad office moral.

  49. You see how this works, don’t you?

    Big media installed Obama.

    Big media marches in lock step with Obama.

    And being elites, they are just hunky dory with his destruction of the middle class.

    To them, it means once in a lifetime buying opportunities for bankrupt assets.

    Until . . .

    They see evidence that they–these high minded pseudo journalists

    Are no more important to HIM (always use capital letters when referring to the Messiah)

    Than the common herd with they both despise and feel so bloody superior to.

    Piers Morgan DESTROYS Obama in Daily Mail Editorial

    BRYAN PRESTON

    October 3, 2014 – 7:48 am

    inShare
    Email Print Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size
    President Obama recently blamed the intelligence community for “underestimating” ISIS. Piers Morgan, recently ejected from CNN and now at the Daily Mail, isn’t buying that. At all.

    ‘James Clapper (Director of National Intelligence) has acknowledged that they underestimated what had been taking place in Syria,’ he said, when asked how ISIS’ influence could have spread so fast.

    As Governor Chris Christie pointed out, by saying ‘they’ rather than ‘we’, Obama tried to distance himself from any personal responsibility or accountability for what has been a catastrophic failure to act over the greatest terror threat facing the world since Osama Bin Laden.

    A more shameless, reprehensible display of buck-passing it would be hard to find from a sitting President.

    Indeed. And Morgan is only getting warmed up.

    All that will happen now is that those maligned intelligence agencies will exact cold-blooded revenge on Obama by drip-feeding negative stories about him until he’s gone.

    It’s what they do.

    The truth is that Obama is the one who underestimated ISIS, plunging his head ostrich-like into the sand and hoping they would go away without having to do anything to actually make them go away.

    There were clear, unambiguous public warnings made nearly a year ago in front of the Foreign Affairs Committee that ISIS was on the march in Syria and Iraq.

    But perhaps Obama missed them.

    Hardly surprising when we discover yesterday that he has only attended 42.1 percent of his Presidential Daily intelligence briefings.

    Morgan even went after Obama’s golf obsession.

    Imagine how emboldened they must have felt when Obama made his ‘heartfelt’ speech about journalist James Foley’s execution, and was then seen laughing and joking on the golf course SEVEN MINUTES later.

    Obama has so far played golf 192 times since becoming President.

    Even Rory McIlroy would struggle to match such enthusiasm for the game.

    Wow.

    A rapid Arsenal soccer fan, Morgan knows all about sports obsessions. Yet, unlike President Obama, Piers Morgan knows when to set that aside and work. Morgan’s editorial doesn’t make up for his fraud and his anti-gun hysteria, but it’s impressive nonetheless.

  50. jbstonesfan

    Thanks for that update. Surprising, the same thing is going on where I work, huge complex (let’s just call it that), and huge cutbacks, no wage increases, double the work/stress and I will be working from now until eternity.

    Forget about retirement and I am Hillary’s age. I shouldn’t complain about not being able to retire, I want her to run for President again, and that job is more stressful than any on earth.

    Even the golfing goober has lots of gray hair from the job.

  51. Even the golfing goober has lots of gray hair from the job.
    —————-
    You have given me an idea.

    It is a known fact that Obama hates tradition.

    Why?

    Because tradition stands in the way of the brave new Orwellian world he hopes to create.

    But there are some rituals he cannot escape.

    Such as the ceremonial carving of the Thanksgiving turkey by the president.

    In his mind this is a throwback to the very world he hopes to obliterate–the world of Norman Rockwell, rather than Che Gueverra Gutteriez.

    So why not play a little prank, to show the world that he is committed to change and has not lost his sense of humor.

    Why not switch places with the turkey.

  52. Update: Obama corporate culture strikes again – Ebola Obama Infects CDC. The Director of the CDC said some remarkably stupid political, not medical, assertions which echo from the Obama refusal to secure the nation’s borders.



    The CDC head is as deceptive as Barack Obama:

    First, nobody is arguing flights carrying medical personnel should be banned in and out of West Africa. People who argue for flight restrictions are referring to flights that allow anyone from the U.S. to get on a plane and head to Liberia or other countries and then returning after filling out a less than effective medical screening form. The man with the case of Ebola in Dallas isn’t a medical worker, he went over to attend a funeral and after helping a woman sick with the disease and came back to the U.S. anyway. Second, France, England and a slew of Africa countries have either restricted travel or sealed off borders to prevent the disease from spreading.

    So how exactly is the CDC screening for Ebola before people leave West Africa for the U.S.? What preventative measures are being taken? As he said in the clip above, “We are doing very good temperature screening.”

    All you need to jump over the “very good temperature screening” hurdle is the very cheap and very available Ibuprofen. You would also need to lie. But, No Law Requires People to Tell Airlines They’re Sick.

    As we wrote below, Obama sending thousands of American troops to fight Ebola in Africa is dangerous. These troops are not medical personnel. We’ve already seen that even trained medical personnel can contract Ebola despite all the medical “protocols” in place. The wackadoodle-two-headed-dentist has a point: ‘Can You Imagine If a Whole Ship Full of Our Soldiers Catch Ebola?’

    Barack Obama said it was “unlikely” to happen here. But it’s here. And Ebola might have spread to D.C. where Obama should be able to see it close up. Michelle might have to trade her cocktail waitress clothes for designer Hazmat outfits. Ebola has already struck Obama protection headquarters MSNBC.

  53. That didn’t take long ….Obama opens his big mouth at a speech and murders the Dem Midterm chances in one big foul swoop.

  54. Ebola Fumble: Obama Fails to Use Legal Power to Deny Entry

    By Christian Adams, PJ Media

    As the Ebola epidemic has spread through West Africa over the last several months, President Obama has not used legal powers he possesses to help prevent the deadly virus from entering the United States.

    Federal law gives the president the power to issue a proclamation to seal the borders to any class of aliens who pose a threat to the United States. The law is broad enough that Obama could have issued a proclamation months ago denying entry to any foreign national from the countries of Sierra Leone, Guinea, Nigeria or Liberia. Under the law, such a proclamation could have also included any passport holder who visited those countries as evidenced by visas or entry/exit stamps on the passport.

    Section 1182 (f) of the Immigration and Naturalization Act gives the president this power, which the Obama administration has refused to use even as Ebola threatens Americans. The law states:

    Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.

    This means that Obama could, in the time it takes to write out a few paragraphs, stop the flow of people into American communities who have been exposed to Ebola in West Africa.

    As I previously reported, four direct flights from Ebola ravaged nations fly into the United States. (PJ link to Air Ebola.) Passport checks could be conducted prior to boarding aircraft bound for the United States from foreign destinations.

  58. http://pjmedia.com/tatler/2014/10/03/ebola-in-washington-dc-now/
    ————–
    The political class in Washington would be perfectly content to let the pandemic happen here rather than restrict flights from Ebola affected countries. But now that the virus is entering Washington DC and could affect them—the elites like in the Poe short story The Mask of Red Death do not be surprised if their tune changes. You may think that statement is hyperbolic and reduction ad absurdum. Until you study the facts and realize the magnitude of the problem and the paltry response to it, which leaves the door wide open. But when these elites get scared things will happen, like a massive overreaction which still misses the mark.

  59. http://freebeacon.com/columns/the-case-for-panic/

    Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic.

    This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false. We discover that lapses in security are much worse than previously understood, that in recent memory the White House was sprayed with bullets, and that an armed man with a criminal record rode in an elevator with the president. The official in charge of the Secret Service, promoted for reasons of affirmative action, resigns hours after the White House expresses its confidence in her abilities. The overriding impression is of disarray, confusion, bad management, failed communication, anomie, disillusion, corruption, and secrecy. But do not worry. Things are under control.

    The elevator? It was in the Center for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, where the president told the American people that the Ebola outbreak in West Africa is not a threat to our country. President Obama said the chances of Ebola appearing in the United States are “extremely low.” If a carrier somehow finds his way to the 50 states, “We have world-class facilities and professionals ready to respond. And we have effective surveillance mechanisms in place.” Two weeks later, as Byron York points out, the president was proven utterly wrong.

    It is the same story as the fence-jumper: lax security, missed opportunities, hollow defenses. A Liberian national exposed to the terrible virus travels on a visa to visit his sister in Dallas. He has a three-hour layover in Dulles Airport. Upon his arrival in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area he exposes, at a minimum, 100 people, including children, to Ebola. When he visits a hospital looking for help, he is examined and sent away. Two days later he begins vomiting uncontrollably. “His whole family was screaming.” An ambulance arrived. He was returned to the hospital, where he remains.

    Again, the authorities behave irresponsibly and inscrutably. Again, the faces on our televisions say there is no cause for alarm. “I think the notion that we will not have an outbreak of Ebola here, more than just an isolated person or two, is very reliable and very true,” says MSNBC house doctor Zeke “If You Like Your Doctor You Can Pay More” Emanuel. Emanuel is not bothered in the slightest—but then he has just 18 years left anyway.

    I have a second opinion. Not only do I disagree with the constant stream of soothing and complacent rhetoric from Dr. Zeke’s friends in government and media. I also believe it is entirely rational to fear the possibility of a major Ebola outbreak, of a threat to the president and his family, of jihadists crossing the border, of a large-scale European or Asian war, of nuclear proliferation, of terrorists detonating a weapon of mass destruction. These dangers are real, and pressing, and though the probability of their occurrence is not high, it is amplified by the staggering incompetence and failure and misplaced priorities of the U.S. government. It is not Ebola I am afraid of. It is our government’s ability to deal with Ebola.

    Over the last few years the divergence between what the government promises and what it delivers, between what it says is happening or will happen and what actually is happening and does happen, between what it determines to be important and what the public wishes to be important—this gap has become abysmal, unavoidable, inescapable. We hear of “lone-wolf” terrorism, of “workplace violence,” that if you like your plan you can keep your plan. We are told that Benghazi was a spontaneous demonstration, that al Qaeda is on the run, that the border is secure as it has ever been, that Assad must go, that I didn’t draw a red line, the world drew a red line, that the IRS targeting of Tea Party groups involved not a smidgen of corruption, that the Islamic State is not Islamic. We see the government spend billions on websites that do not function, and the VA consign patients to death by waiting list and then cover it up. We are assured that Putin won’t invade; that the Islamic State is the jayvee team of terrorism; that Bowe Bergdahl served with honor and distinction; that there is a ceasefire between Ukraine and Russia.

    While the public remains pro-Israel, our government negotiates with Israel’s enemies. While the public wants to reduce immigration, the preeminent legislative objective of both parties is a bill that would increase it. While the public is uninterested in global warming, while costly regulations could not pass a filibuster-proof Democratic Senate, while the scientific consensus behind the green agenda is, at the very least, fraying, the president says that climate change is the greatest threat to the United States. While Americans tell pollsters their economic situation has not improved, and that things are headed in the wrong direction—while even Democratic economists acknowledge the despondent state of the middle class—the president travels to Chicago to celebrate his economic recovery.

    These disjunctions and confusions, these missteps, scandals, and miscalculations, have hurt Obama’s approval numbers. They endanger the Democratic Senate majority, contribute to the widespread sense of disorder and decay, shatter trust in government and in public institutions. They have put into stark relief a political class dominated by liberal partisans, captured by ideas and interests removed from those of ordinary Americans. The stories of ineptitude or malfeasance that appear in the daily newspaper are more than examples of high ideals executed poorly. They are examples of the pursuit of ideas—of equality and diversity and progress and centralization and environmentalism and globalization—to absurd and self-destructive limits.

    It is precisely the intersection of Ebola and globalization that worries me. The only response to a virus this deadly is to quarantine it. Stop flights, suspend visas, and beef up customs and security. It can be done. If the FAA can cancel flights to Israel, why can’t it cancel flights to and from the West African countries whence the outbreak originated?

    Simple: because doing so would violate the sacred principles by which our bourgeois liberal elite operate. To deny an individual entry to the United States over fears of contamination would offend our elite’s sense of humanitarian cosmopolitanism. For them, “singling out” nations or cultures from which threats to the public health or safety of the United States originate is illegitimate. It “stigmatizes” those nations or cultures, it “shames” them, it makes them feel unequal. It’s judgmental. It suggests that America prefers her already existing citizens to others.

    Such pieties endanger us. They are the reason we were slow to contain the influx of Central American refugees, the reason we do not follow-up on illegal immigrants who fail to show up for hearings, the reason we remain unable to strip jihadists of U.S. citizenship, the reason that a year after two Chechen refugees bombed the Boston Marathon, America is preparing to expand resettlement of Syrian refugees. The imperatives of the caste, the desire to make actual whatever is rattling around Tom Friedman’s brain at a given moment, take precedence over reality.

    The system can withstand only so many shocks. For the last two years it has suffered nothing but blows, traumas, national and international concussions. The response by our government has been denial and delusion. But that has further alienated the public, and it won’t be long before things get really weird. Maybe it is time for the political class to panic, too.

    Know hope? That’s passé.

  60. This is truly surreal, these deadly issues coming out before the November elections. Like, is Ofuctard TRYING to destroy the Democratic Party? Or is he so grossly disconnected that he does not get it?

    The ‘expert’ doctors, like Sange Goopta (I don’t care how his name is spelled since he is downplaying the seriousness with his half truths), says that even though Ebola can survive outside the body for “up to two days”, contamination of objects infecting someone is highly UNLIKELY.

    Yup, “…highly unlikely”, that’s why items are burned and why epidemics spread with idiots like this telling the public half truths.

    BREAKING>>> ISIS Beheads BRITISH HOSTAGE ALAN HENNING – Promises to Behead American Peter Kassig

    ISIS was holding hostage British aide worker Alan Henning.
    Today they released video of his beheading.
    BREAKING PHOTO—– [snip]

    The ISIS beheader says in the video,

    “His blood of David Haines was on your hands, Cameron. Daniel Henning will also be slaughtered. But his blood is on the hands of the British Parliament.”

    Daniel Henning made this statement in the video before his death:

    “Hi I’m Alan Henning. Because of our parliament’s decision to attack the Islamic State, I as a member of the British public, will now pay the price for that decision.”

    Daniel had gone to Syria to “help his Muslim friends.”

    Expect the American beheading just before the November elections. So much for Andrew Sullivan’s nonsense about Muslim boys and men loving American because of “Obama’s face”.

  63. OK, you have me spooked. I just reordered some quat. I use a dilute solution to clean after my cat and kill mold. It is an excellent disinfectant. You have to be careful when using it. Ventilation and PPE, especially in the more concentrated form. But it has a short life and breaks down to harmless byproduct in about 15 minutes. I actually help developed some environmentally friendly mold remediation techniques using this followed up by a bacterial enzyme.

    I recommend Fiberlock Shockwave 8310 quaternary ammonium chloride (quat) for anybody as freaked out by all this as I am. I get a gallon and it dilutes up to 2 oz per gallon.

    However, with all the technology available, research shows that the best defense is to wash your hands well and not otherwise touch your face.

    Updated less than a minute ago

    At least seven Somerset County fire departments were on the scene of a fire in two buildings at the Flight 93 National Memorial Friday afternoon in Stonycreek Township.
    A spokeswoman for the county emergency management said the blaze that broke out about 3:15 p.m. The cause is not known.
    One fire is in the new visitors center, she said. The other is the office headquarters.
    A live webcam shows smoke rising above the memorial site.
    The national park commemorates the spot where United Flight 93 crashed on Sept. 11, 2001, after passengers fought back against terrorist hijackers.
    The 6,800-square-foot visitor center was expected to open in late 2015.
    Park officials could not immediately be reached for comment.

  66. ” the staggering incompetence and failure and misplaced priorities of the U.S. government. It is not Ebola I am afraid of. It is our government’s ability to deal with Ebola.”
    ******
    That is the important message, so far, from “Ebola” in the US. The absolute politicization and incompetence of CDC and public health infrastructure to deal with what should have been a routine and probably minor infectious disease issue, is really terrifying. Ebola is unlikely to be a significant problem in this country but it is the canary in the coal mine that show that we are totally unprepared to deal with an “real” epidemic. People forget that Smallpox killed 300-500 million people during the first 75 years of the 20th century and the Spanish Flu killed up to 500 million from 1918-1920.

  67. I heard a conservative analyst (as usual I can’t remember name, website, etc. – I’m driving any flipping through radio stations) say today that the lack of concern O has expressed regarding Ebola in this country is because he and those of his mindset see problems strictly in terms of global impact . In Barack’s view, according to this commentator, it’s not fair and equitable for Americans not to have Ebola when large numbers of Africans are infected with the virus.

    This individual stated her belief that the plan all along had been to allow the virus into this country where there are more and better resources with which to figure out how best to combat/cure it.

    I was a bit embarrassed to have to admit to myself that the theory was not terribly far fetched. Obama has certainly not felt loyalty to or concerns for Americans, as we all know. No borders, no exceptionalism, no more safety, security, etc., than citizens of other countries.

  68. what I do not understand is with all our so called “intel” and NSA that is monitoring the whole wide world…and our drones…etc, etc, etc…why can’t the USA and its allies get a clue into the whereabouts and timing of these beheadings and stop them…

    these guys are announcing the next one…even telling us who it will be…why can’t we do something to at least try to stop this…

    the USA looks very weak…and very submissive…spineless and rudderless…I think O is afraid of retribution…i think he is scared…

  69. HUGH HEWITT, HOST: Kirsten, as a Democrat and as a veteran of the Clinton administration, would you rank for me from most competent to least competent the three Democrats: Obama, Clinton and Carter. Who was the worst of those three on competence issues?

    KIRSTEN POWERS: Clinton was the most competent, obviously. And then, I don’t — you know, Carter, I was a child, so I didn’t live through that. So I don’t know if I have as much as a sense of that and I also have a little affection for him because of his human rights work…

    It is safe to say that Obama has been a huge disappointment, if that’s what you’re getting at. I really don’t think there’s any comparison between him and Bill Clinton. I don’t think we’re even talking about the same universe there.

    what kind of a man does this? what kind of a leader acts this way?
    will he interrupt his three day west coast fundraising cavorting if ISIS decides to behead the American in the middle of O’s rendevous?

    It infected 500 million, and killed 50-100 million (3-5% of the world’s population): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1918_flu_pandemic

    A neighbor of mine told me that he was in kindergarten here in Seattle when the Spanish flu epidemic hit.

    Eight (8) of his twelve (12) classmates died from it.

    Of course, in those days they did not have Obama–as he would freely admit, in the course of pointing out it was not his fault.

    But truth to tell, if Barack had been president in those days, the number of casualties would have doubled.

  75. S, he does appear to be lazy, apathetic, unconcerned, aloof, incompetent.

    But, at the risk of going all conspiracy theory, it’s getting harder and harder to believe that what appears to be incompetence, weakness, laziness is actually not sinister, deliberate destructiveness.

    Hell yeah!

    Wbb, I was shocked, shocked, I tell you to see that Piers the Ass-Kisser had gone all Tingles on Barack’s ass. It was freaky enough to see Tingle-Thighs criticizing the UnPrez, in Admin’s previous article. Now, we find out that Piers the Pansy is also (pretending to be) on Barack’s case too. That’s even more freaky … Super-freaky, you might say.

    I guess it’s CYA time for MSM. But I swear, the residents of hell must be looking for their ice skates right now.

  77. A necessary evil, I suppose:
    HARRISBURG – Pennsylvania’s Democratic gubernatorial candidate, Tom Wolf, is about to receive some high-powered campaign help from Hillary Clinton. Wolf’s campaign said Friday that the former U.S. secretary of state and former first lady will headline a “Women for Wolf” rally at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia on Thursday.
    Clinton, who unsuccessfully sought the Democratic nomination for president in 2008, is maintaining a high national profile and is considered a potential candidate in the 2016 election.
    The event is scheduled to be held the day after Wolf’s third and final debate with Republican Gov. Tom Corbett in Pittsburgh. Independent polls show the wealthy York businessman holding a wide lead over Corbett.

    Above is an AP article published in yorkdispatch dot com.

    I have my own take on Wolf, contrasting him to Obama and accusing his Democratic primary campaign to be as fake as the one held for Obama 2008: https://twitter.com/viannahlee/status/515896370218430464

    Yep. I finally felt called upon to “do” a state post card.

  78. Katie McGinty, who served under President Bill Clinton, plays a big role in the current competition, hauling water for Wolf as Hillary eventually did for Obama: McGinty: an American environmentalist and government official. An advisor to Vice President Al Gore, she became a key environmental advisor to President Bill Clinton. Later, she served as Secretary of Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection in the Cabinet of Governor Ed Rendell. Prior to the nomination of Lisa P. Jackson, she was mentioned as a possible United States Environmental Protection Agency Administrator under President Barack Obama,[1] and as a possible candidate to succeed Ed Rendell as Governor of Pennsylvania, but was not a candidate in the 2010 election.[2] McGinty was a candidate for Governor of Pennsylvania in 2014.[3]

    Spanish Flu…

    A neighbor of mine told me… Eight (8) of his twelve (12) classmates died from it.

    … if Barack had been president in those days, the number of casualties would have doubled.

    Oh come on, doubling the casualties would mean sixteen (16) of his twelve (12) classmates would have died. I doubt even Barry could work a miracle like that!

  80. The Grimes campaign has informed me that HRC will be in KY soon to promote Alison. I was sure the big cannons would come out blazing, with all the millions that have been invested in McConnell so far.

    Grimes is way behind on funding but she’s actually a little ahead of McConnell in the polls (44-42), which means she stands a good chance of winning because the undecideds tend to go against the incumbent at the last minute.

  81. The Atlantic, which has long been a vital part of Obama’s We Got Your Back, Barack protection team features this article discussing Obama’s “friendly fire” problem. The article quotes Paanetta’s new book and cites other former administration officials who have been critical of the Whiner in Chief, including Hillary and Gates.

    The author, David Graham, puts forth a few theories about why Obama is drawing so much “friendly fire”.

    1) Is it because, as was said about him last year, that he just didn’t take his cabinet seriously?

    2) Of course Bush could be to blame. Graham points out that Bush demanded loyalty from those who worked for him, which explains why he drew less “friendly fire”. Can you believe the author found a way to blame Bush for the fact that O’s former cabinet members and other staff have the audacity to criticize Barack?!

    3) But wait….. It’s probably because these secretaries with “strong views” just refuse to let them “go unaired during a key moment”.

    Damn these former secretaries. They refuse to shut-up and take the blame for Barack’s poor judgment calls – which are based not on the advice of these experienced, well-informed department heads. No way is Barack going to accept their guidance, not when some inexperienced glorified WH gofer is available to advise him.

    Barack Obama’s Friendly-Fire Problem

    David Graham

    (snip)

    Leon Panetta is the latest former aide to criticize the president publicly. This kind of thing didn’t always happen.

    So why the shift? There’s probably no one theory that explains it all. Glenn Thrush reported in 2013 that Obama seemed never to take much of his Cabinet all that seriously, and didn’t make many efforts to keep them happy and feeling valued. Bush, by contrast, made loyalty the paramount value of his White House. It’s easy to see how the two approaches could have different outcomes. Or maybe it’s just about the faster pace of media and life, and an unwillingness by former secretaries with strong views to let those views go unaired during a key moment.

    Whatever the reason, the friendly fire couldn’t come at a worse time—weeks before a crucial midterm election—or from a worse place. With friends like these, who needs a Republican House and Senate?

  82. Comparing Bill to Barack. What’s the opposite of Big Dawg? Little Pussy Cat maybe?
    ————————————————-

    My Cat is SOoooooooooooo insulted.

  83. Posted below is an excerpt from the latest article by Richard Fernandez who provides me with a clear understanding of current events.

    This one relates to the Ebola threat to the United States.

    At this point, there is a conflict between what the CDC is saying, and what certain doctors are saying on that subject, in particular Dr. Mobley.

    In essence, CDC says don’t worry, Mobley says worry and ner the twain shall meet.

    As Richard Fernadez points out, they are talking about different two different things:

    The CDC model focuses on the chance that a single diseased person will come to the US, and properly concludes that is small.

    And that is of course what no Drama Obama will fixate on–because he is focused on things like amnesty and does not care about national security.

    But what if thousands of diseased people come here through flights, open borders and other means of transportation?

    At that point, their model becomes irrelevant.

    Because now we are talking about the aggregate risk–which is the macro threat to public health.

    Try thinking of it this way:

    If you have a revolver with one bullet and a thousand chambers and you spin it once the chance of firing is small–that is the CDC model.

    But if you spin the chamber enough times, eventually, the bullet, or in this case Ebola will get lucky—which is Dr. Mobley’s point.

    And no drama Obama will find someone else to blame–probably not the intelligence community on this one–more likely the CDC.

    The ineluctable conclusion that flows from this analysis is two fold:

    1. embargo flights from affected areas (isolation)

    2. attack the virus at the source (containment and elimination)

    –if you keep spinning it, the bullet will get lucky. thousands of diseased persons will come here hence the aggregate risk in significant–which is Mobley’s point. The CDC is a thoroughly politicized agency. Who the fuck cares about their hypothetical–it is an abstraction. Dr. Mobley’s hypothetical is the relevant one. And what it tells us is we should embargo flights from the Ebola affected regions to this country, and focus on eliminating the disease at the source. The opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal this morning says the epidemic is manageable assuming minimal competence in government. Under Obama, that presents as secondary and tertiary source of concern, if you reflect for a minute on the record of his presidency as a whole.
    ———————

    When the CDC says the probability of a diseased person reaching the US is “very small” they are talking about the betting odds, which in our hypothetical example was 12/10,000 or .0012. But remember that expected value has a second term: the stake at the table. If there is one Ebola patient with a .0012 chance of reaching America that is one thing, but if there 10,000 people each with a .0012 chance of getting through that is another. The CDC is saying that they have a revolver with thousands of chambers and only of them has a cartridge in it. Mobley is saying that’s true but if you keep playing Russian Roulette long enough you’ll eventually hit upon a loaded chamber.

    Spin the wheel enough times and eventually Ebola gets lucky. The more Ebola patients there are worldwide the more times you spin the wheel. Dr. Mobley is saying that if the disease keeps exploding in West Africa the wheel will get spun too often. Someone will get through, because even though the chance of arriving is individually small, there are just too many individuals who might potentially try to get through.

    Wikipedia has been following the rate of Ebola infection. It is evident that the experts are not even agreement except in that their old estimates have been too low. The newer estimates are higher estimates.

    On 28 August, the WHO released its first estimate of the possible total cases (20,000) from the outbreak … When the WHO released its first estimated projected number of cases, a number of epidemiologists presented data to show that the WHO’s projection of a total of 20,000 cases was likely an underestimate.

    On August 31, the journal Science quoted Christian Althaus, a mathematical epidemiologist at the University of Bern in Switzerland, as saying that if the epidemic were to continue in this way until December, the cumulative number of cases would exceed 100,000 in Liberia alone. According to a research paper released in early September, in the hypothetical worst-case scenario, if a BRN of over 1.0 continues for the remainder of the year we would expect to observe a total of 77,181 to 277,124 additional cases within 2014.

    On 9 September, Jonas Schmidt-Chanasit of the Bernhard Nocht Institute for Tropical Medicine controversially announced that the containment fight in Sierra Leone and Liberia has already been “lost” and that the disease would “burn itself out”.

    Writing in the NYT on 12 September, Bryan Lewis, an epidemiologist at the Virginia Bioinformatics Institute at Virginia Tech, said that researchers at various universities who have been using computer models to track the growth rate say that at the virus’s present rate of growth, there could easily be close to 20,000 cases in one month, not in nine. …

    In a 23 September CDC report, a projection calculates a potential underreporting which is corrected by a factor of 2.5. With this correction factor, approximately 21,000 total cases are the estimate for the end of September 2014 in Liberia and Sierra Leone alone. The same report predicted that total cases, including unreported cases, could reach 1.4 million in Liberia and Sierra Leone by 20 January 2015

    Dr. Mobley’s estimate that a “million people” are now under isolation in Africa is not quite true. But it might reach the million mark by year’s end if some of the estimates are to be believed.

    Why does he advocate isolation? Because the effect of isolation is to slice up the graph and cut off the pathways. In the example above the righthand graphic shows that cutting up the graph makes it impossible to go from node 1 to node 10 because there is no path. Of course on the real planet earth, total isolation is impossible. Even if all airline routes were canceled to the affected countries, there would still be some chance that someone could walk to a place where a flight could be obtained. But the probability goes down and with it, the expected value of an infected passenger arriving.

    One result from this analysis is that no one is really safe from Ebola until the the locus of the disease has been beaten down. No matter how you isolate, the plague is out there. You are then like Prince Prospero in his castle, safe for so long as the Red Death cannot scale your fortress wall. But if he does the problem starts again.

    In a submarine at depth, the tiniest opening in the hull can be fatal. The size of the epidemic represents the pressure of water on the hull. It is no more comforting to say “the chances of someone infected coming to America are small” than it is to reassure a submarine captain that the “hole in your hull is tiny”. That might be OK at keel depth, but if the submarine dives to 1,000 feet that little hole will give you big trouble.

    Parenthetically, what is really interesting is where the “Precautionary Principle” has gone to. The administration used to be really worried about the long shot odds that Michael Mann’s climate model might be right. But it doesn’t worry about Ebola odds. Maybe we should apply the Precautionary Principle all of the time or none of the time. But it’s altogether too confusing to apply it in this uneven manner.

    When I was a child I remembered reading the about the exploits of Barton and Beebe who explored the depths of the ocean in a bathysphere. Their stories impressed upon me forever the power of a little hole under great pressure.

    When conducting an unmanned test of the Bathysphere with the third window installed, after pulling the Bathysphere back up they found it almost entirely full of water. Realizing the immense pressure that the water must be under, Beebe ordered his crew to stand clear and began loosening the hatch’s bolts to remove the hatch himself. Beebe described the experience that followed this in his book Half Mile Down:

    “Suddenly, without the slightest warning, the bolt was torn from our hands, and the mass of heavy metal shot across the deck like the shell from a gun. The trajectory was almost straight, and the brass bolt hurtled into the steel winch thirty feet away across the deck and sheared a half-inch notch gouged out by the harder metal. This was followed by a solid cylinder of water, which slackened after a while into a cataract, pouring out the hole in the door, some air mingled with the water, looking like hot steam, instead of compressed air shooting through ice-cold water.”

    All that came through a hole the diameter of a bolt. Well, you can cut metal with a tiny, high pressure jet. It’s true the chances of an Ebola patient coming to America are small, but that doesn’t mean Dr. Mobley isn’t right to worry.

  84. If I voted for Obama once I would hide from the world.

    If I voted for him twice I would be tempted to either slit my throat, or ask the exchanges whether lobotomies are covered under Obamacare for non-Republicans.

  85. David Graham is a fucking nobody.

    A senior associate editor of the Atlantic?

    Sooner a piano player in a whore house.

    He calls the charges against Obama, by former cabinet officials, friendly fire?

    Friendly fire is when an army ACCIDENTALLY fires on its own troops.

    Are we to believe that Panetta’s observations about Obama’s incompetence were accidental, as opposed to intentional?

    Does that characterization pass the red face test.

    Only to a little commie like Graham.

    And the motive he proffers is just as ridiculous.

    Panetta and others are retaliating against Obama because he ignored them and made them feel unloved.

    You will get no disagreement form me that he ignored them.

    He preferred the safer company of Jarrett, Michelle, Axelrod and Brennan to run run his disastrous foreign policy.

    So what is the explanation?

    Are they launching UNfriendly fire against him now because he failed to make them feel loved?

    Or was it because he failed to listen to much less heed the sound advice they gave him.

    And for the sake of their own legacy they do not want him to blame them for his failures–as he is want to do.

    This young maggot Graham belongs in a rubber room.

  86. The students of Goddard College have invited an assassin to be their commencement speaker. The assassin is black, the student body is predominantly black, and the student liason claims that this assassin has an important message to deliver to the student body–a prison perspective he says, as these students pass the bar and go out into the world to seek whatever they are seeking. With a degree from Goddard, the only profession they are likely to find is one that lands them in the same place as their commencement speaker. This is where adult supervision should be exerted, but as with so many college administrators they are spineless. In the fulsomeness of time, these students may discover that a diploma from Goddard has less practical value than a roll of toilet paper. The wife of the victim, a Philadelphia police officer, is very distressed about this, as you might expect. The assassin disses the infatuated student body by refusing to attend, but sending them a video tape recording of what he would have said had he been there.

  87. And this is how Goddard grads will be remembered–as in: okay Jamil, I see that you attended Goddard College . . . not sure I have heard of it . . . oh now I remember, the one that hires convicted cop killers to be their commencement speakers. . . lets not waste each others time . . . you are not qualified for this position . . . who knows what you might do if we hired you, etc.

    A United Airilines flight from Brussels was met by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention officials today at Newark Liberty International Airport after a passenger on board believed to be from Liberia exhibited possible signs of Ebola.
    The passenger was traveling with his daughter on United Flight 998 and both were removed from the plane by CDC crew in full hazmat gear.
    A senior federal official said the passenger was exbihiting “flu-like symptoms.”
    According to an official briefed on the situation, preliminary information was that the passenger was vomiting on flight but did not display most of the other symptoms.

    “HE’S NOW BEING TREATED WITH PROTOCOLS AS IF HE HAS IT, BUT NO CLEAR INDICATION AT THIS POINT THAT HE DOES,” THE OFFICIAL SAID.

  89. HOSPITAL: US EBOLA PATIENT IN CRITICAL CONDITION Oct 4, 2:35 PM EDT
    DALLAS (AP) — The Dallas hospital treating the lone U.S. Ebola patient says he is in critical condition.
    A spokeswoman for Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas issued a six-word news release about Thomas Duncan on Saturday saying, “Mr. Duncan is in critical condition.”
    She provided no further details about his condition. The hospital previously said Duncan was being kept in isolation and that his condition was serious but stable.
