Congress Mulling Mandatory Isolation for Returning Ebola Doctors

After a doctor returning from treating patients in West Africa was diagnosed with the deadly Ebola virus, some in Congress are proposing that any healthcare worker returning from overseas after treating Ebola patients must be placed in isolation to make sure they are free of the disease.

Doctor Craig Spencer was diagnosed with Ebola upon returning to the US after taking care of Ebola patients in Guinea but when he first came home he was not exhibiting any symptoms. But only days after his return Spencer checked into Bellevue Hospital in New York and in short order was diagnosed with the virus.

The doctor is now in isolation and being treated for Ebola.

Before he began showing symptoms, Dr. Spencer was carrying on his life as normal, riding city mass transit, eating out, even going bowling. This is something that has alarmed lawmakers sparking a motion to make isolation mandatory.

USA Falls to 12th Place in World Economic Freedom

In the year 2000 the USA ranked second on the Economic Freedom of the World report. Now, in 2014, the USA has fallen to 12th place.

That’s right, the country founded on capitalism and economic freedom has been steadily losing ground among the most free nations as our system declines into welfare dependency, government sponsored crony capitalism (which isn’t capitalism at all but fascism), and big government, regulatory strangulation.

The CATO Institute puts out its annual report measuring the economic freedom of the nations of the world and this year the leader in global economic freedom is Hong Kong. The rest of the top ten are as follows: Singapore; New Zealand; Switzerland; Mauritius; United Arab Emirates; Canada; Australia; Jordan; and, tied for 10th is Chile and Finland.

And what of the United States?

Sen. Durbin’s Wife A Lobbyist Who ‘Accidentally’ Got High Dollar Federal Contracts

Illinois Senior Senator, Democrat Dick Durbin was forced to respond to a Chicago Tribune story that revealed that his wife is a lobbyist who received high-dollar federal contracts. Durbin said it was purely coincidental… then offered to sell us the Brooklyn Bridge.

Durbin told the Tribune that his wife only lobbies with the State of Illinois, not the federal government, so the millions she rakes in from federal contracts is just a coincidence. Really. It was… a totally, unseen, completely accidental coincidence… that a Senator who is the third in line of power in the US Senate has a wife who just coincidentally got millions in federal contracts.

Oklahoma Beheading Shows Authorities Are Putting Us In Danger

After a Muslim convert in Oklahoma murdered a fellow co-worker at a food processing plant by beheading her, authorities there rushed to TV to claim that it was *just* workplace violence and that the Muslim murderer is not a terrorist. Since then we’ve seen every example of how this monster was a committed radical Islamist which makes him a terrorist whether he’s connected to a particular group or not yet our leaders are burying their heads in the sand and refusing to admit the truth.

On September 26, a man whom the police keep calling Alton Nolan entered Vaughn Foods, his place of employment, and beheaded Colleen Hufford, 54, a woman that works there, a woman he knew. He also tried to kill another employee, Traci Johnson, 43.

As soon as the incident hit the media authorities in Oklahoma rushed to the TV to insist that Nolan was not a terrorist, that he had no ties to any terror group, and that the attack was only a run-of-the-mill, average, boring ol’ case of “workplace anger.”

This is all a pack of lies.

Republican Leaders Pushing Wealth Redistribution

Traditionally, Republicans are supposed to be against the redistribution of wealth in the USA. But it seems times may be changing with at least three purportedly conservative leaders in Congress suddenly advocating for at least some income redistribution.

According to Fortune magazine three major congressional Republican leaders are floating plans that call for some sort of redistribution.

Republican Senators Mike Lee and Marco Rubio have recently proposed what they are calling a pro-family and pro-growth tax reform plan that would refigure tax rates from the current seven brackets to only two; 15 and 35 percent.

FDR Invented The ‘Liar-In-Chief’ And Tore Down the Democrat Party And The Country

PBS and documentary maker Ken Burns have done it again with a wonderful look at the political lives of Teddy and Franklin Roosevelt. But if the series did anything it revealed to a discerning viewer how Franklin rebuilt the presidency on a pillar of hate and lies and remade the Democrat Party into a party driven by purposeful misdirection and deceit.

Certainly the series approaches these two consequential presidents as good for the country. Neither were as salubrious for the country as popular opinion holds and both did a lot of damage. To Burns’ credit he does allow conservative commentator George Will to slip in a few digs at how both Teddy and Franklin tore down the presidency and turned our country from a constitutional republic built on a pretty straightforward explication of the political raison d’être of any particular party, candidate or era and into a nation run by sneaky politicians who lie straight-faced to the people and don’t care about the Constitution at all.

Teddy Roosevelt did his bit to end our Constitutional republic, granted, and was followed by Woodrow Wilson who pounded a few more nails into that coffin. But it was Franklin Delano Roosevelt who really destroyed the country.

The truth is, Franklin was an utterly failed president in everything but his leadership in WWII. It has to be acknowledged that his stewardship of the war was great and maybe a lesser president would have left the US more vulnerable. But there is no doubt that he materially hurt this country in every other arena.

His domestic policy was a disaster, his economic policies utterly failed, and his disregard of the rule of law and the US Constitution was a disgusting display of arrogance and hubris. By forcing the world into war, Hitler ended the Great depression, not Franklin Roosevelt.

Still a Slavish Flack: Carney Blames TV Networks for Fewer Obama Speeches

By joining CNN as an on-air commentator, former Obama Press Secretary Jay Carney has passed through the revolving door between the Obama administration and the media, but he is still Obama’s man and in an interview with his new employer he noted that the TV networks are to blame for Obama not being allowed to make more TV speeches. It is lain that Carney will continue to be a bind flack for Obama even on CNN.

Carney stepped down from his post as White House press secretary in June and by September it was announced he was joining CNN as a news commentator. But Carney rose up as an Obama flack one more time in a new interview released on the eve of his debut on the cable network.

In the Wednesday interview Carney explained away Obama’s inability to understand the “optics” of the presidency, said he was serious about putting a halt to the terrorism of ISIS, and said that Twitter was a helpful tool for the White House.

Cities That Have Used Military Equipment for Riot Control Might Owe Feds Millions

On Tuesday, Obama administration officials testified that local police who received surplus military equipment from a government program were never supposed to use that equipment for riot control and if the items were misused, cities may be forced to repay millions in grants given them by the government to purchase the equipment.

The testimony was delivered before Congress by members of the Defense and Homeland Security departments on Tuesday afternoon in a hearing that was spurred by shocking images from Ferguson, Missouri where police used a variety of military-styled equipment to quell rioting last month. Local police obtained some of that surplus military equipment through the Pentagon’s 1033 Program.

During the hearing Senators pointed out that many departments have been given equipment that they really have no legitimate need for. During the hearing it was revealed that one small Oklahoma county sheriff’s department for instance, received two 18-ton MRAP armored vehicles even though the department has only one full-time peace officer.

Several Senators questioned just why local police need military equipment at all. Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul noted that 12,000 bayonets have been given out to local police and he wondered why a weapon of war like that, one used solely for killing and not peacekeeping, needed to be placed in the hands of a police department.

We Should Not Call Them The ‘Ruling Class,’ But the ‘Immunes’

In the bad old days when Kings reigned and the various classes of royalty vied for position the only danger for the “ruling class” was the fear that another member of their class might strike a blow against them. Unlike the lower classes, the rulers of antiquity were immune from the vagaries of life and out of reach of the law. In fact, there was no law. Unfortunately, we are headed right back in that scheme of life.

But one of the societal schemes that the founders of our country set about the task of destroying was that of the divine right of kings, the idea that royalty is subject to no earthly authority.

The founders wanted to create a society that allowed for social mobility among all citizens. They wanted a meritocracy where people could get ahead from the result of their own work and abilities. Above all they wanted a stable rule of law so that such stability could fuel growth.

For nearly 200 years their model worked admirably. But thanks to the drive toward communism starting at the end of the 1800s it appears that the founders’ societal invention has been destroyed.

The question for today is this: are we are living at the end of the American way of life? Has it been destroyed so badly that it is unable to be returned with the mere election of new leaders?

After Congressman Tom Marino (R, PA) made the assertion that the Democrats did nothing about the immigration mess when they controlled both houses of Congress, former Speaker Nancy Pelosi broke House decorum by running after the Pennsylvanian to berate him for his address.

Marino appeared on the floor on Friday, August 1, to voice his support for the passage of the Republican effort to deal with this immigration crisis and noted that Democrats are full of complaining, but are culpable, at least in part, for the situation getting as bad as it has gotten.

“We don’t have law and order,” Marino said of the border crisis. “My colleagues on the other side don’t want to do anything about it.”

Well, one American found out that calling a Congresscritter could result in an attack on him by the IRS just because he had the gall to call and ask questions.

A writer for PJ Media called the office of Texas Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee and instead of being treated professionally by this woman’s staffers, the writer was called names and his questions were ignored.

The writer called the Democrat’s office because on the floor of Congress she uttered an outright lie and the writer was seeking a comment on the incident.

On July 30, Jackson Lee said that Democrats “did not seek an impeachment of President Bush, because as an executive, he had the authority.”

Once again we see how stupid Democrat Party Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz is with a clumsy comment filled with false implications and absurd assumptions not to mention unintentional hilarity as this fool proclaims that Obama has done his job “less often” than any president since Grover Cleveland.

In an appearance on the odious and bottom rated MSNBC, Wasserman Schultz made this messy verbal blunder which in itself is pretty amusing. But underlying her garbled, inarticulate point is a base assumption that proves the lies that Democrats promulgate of what constitutes a president’s job.

New York Times’ Egan Shows Vast Ignorance of Religion, the Founders and the Constitution

In the pages of The New York Times columnist Timothy Egan unleashed an attack on religion that was at once wholly uninformed about both religion and American history yet entirely typical of how uninformed liberals typically are about both religion and history. Egan’s anti-religious rant was also quite hysterical by saying that there is little difference between business owners who don’t want to pay for abortion drugs and radical Islamic terrorists, another opinion increasingly gaining cachet on the left.

Egan began his screed seemingly assigning acts of evil–or at least acts of bias–to God himself. Then he somehow made the World Cup into a religious battle between Popes, found room to slam Texas Governor Rick Perry, and concluded that “God is on a rampage” in 2014.

Now, let us first understand that God is in no way associated with the evil man does in his name. Egan’s claim that God is at fault is a childish exercise that is akin to blaming J. D. Salinger for the murder of John Lennon because shooter Mark David Chapman was a reader.

He directly addressed some bleeding heart, anti-American Catholic priest saying, “Let us say we allow these seven thousand children to stay here and grow up American and go to our schools, what do we say to the sixty thousand that are going to follow them? And the hundred and fifty thousand, can we house them all father? De we have the whereabouts? We can’t even take care of our own kids here now!”

Silly little Mark Zuckerberg thought that because he knew how to create an Internet-based tech company he could obliterate America’s borders and legalize illegal immigration with his “smarts.” While his effort has thus far proven to be a failure, one thing he did succeed in doing is unmask the lie that liberals are interested in bipartisan solutions to… well, to anything.

A recent article in Politico reports that Suckerberg’s starry-eyed attempt to force Congress to legalize illegal aliens has pretty spectacularly failed despite having some of the biggest names on the left and in the tech industry onboard for the effort the Sucker branded FWD.us.

Suckerberg and all his little left-wing tech buddies gathered tens of millions of dollars to push amnesty but, as Politico termed it, they “hit a brick wall.”

The news site also noted that several of Suckerberg’s high profile lefties have abandoned the project to undermine our national sovereignty not because it has thus far failed, but because of the bipartisan way Sucker and his group attempted to push the plan.

Years ago folks that stood against unions always had that one obstacle of “private” concerns in the way of urging people away from unionism. But today, with most unions being tied directly to government, now fighting unions is an act of beneficial government reform.

Once upon a time, the biggest hurdle for those arguing against unionism was the simple truth–and it was a truth–that unions and businesses were private concerns and if the two entities agreed to co-exist, who was an anti-union activist to say anything against the arrangement?

This is a simple, logical question that always made anti-union activists look like meddling outsiders. And the truth is, no matter how right they were that unionism is a bad idea for everyone, they were meddlers!

But today we have a far different situation for those who stand against unions. Since 1959 when unions were first allowed to organize government workers unions have slowly encroached into nearly every aspect of government causing spending to soar, bloating pensions beyond belief, and destroying the efficiency of government.

Officials at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services had made plans to ship hundreds of illegal immigrants to the small farming community from facilities overflowing with illegal aliens in the south and southwest. But officials made no effort to discuss the issue with local residents ahead of time.

The town hall was called when residents found out about the government’s plans.

Brazile piece written her piece for CNN notes that the whole of Washington was surprised by GOP strongman Eric Cantor’s primary loss and is shocked that he will not be returning to Congress even as he thought he was headed to a big primary win and looking forward to more and more power if not the Speaker’s chair itself.

While Democrats always pretend to look aghast at the purported “vile rhetoric” of the right, the truth is it is the left that is filled with a constant stream of hate speech. Worse, while Democrats are positive that there is no such thing as a terrorist in Afghanistan, Iraq or the wider Middle East, they are equally certain that the only true terrorists are Republicans. And we have two democrats affirming that position this month.

Take California’s Democrat Representative Jackie Speier who just yesterday said that the Taliban surely aren’t terrorists. They are, she insisted, legitimate representatives of the Afghan government.

Naturally, this terror excuser said this on MSNBC, the least trusted news source in America. Speier told MSNBC’s Kristen Welker, that the Taliban is not really a terror outfit.

“Let me underscore the term ‘terrorists,'” Speier told MSNBC. “The Taliban is a part of the fabric of Afghanistan.”

Saying “this is the beginning of the revolution,” a couple gunned down two Las Vegas police officers as they ate lunch last weekend. The pair killed themselves in a WalMart not long afterward. As this incident was reported, it occurred to me that I have been warning of this horrible state of affairs, and I am afraid this is not going to be a one-off incident.

As we learn more of the pair of shooters we find that they have a history of seeing government as an enemy to the people. But they aren’t alone.

In the after math as police talked to the media about the shootings, Sheriff Doug Gillespie told the media, “What precipitated this event, we do not know. My officers were simply having lunch.”

But is the sheriff right? Is this incident really such a surprise?

The shootings that ended inside a Las Vegas WalMart with a pair of murderers insisting that they were killing “law enforcement” officers as a means to start a revolution is exactly the sort of thing I have warned about many times.

Firstly, we need to realize this is not a “gun” problem. This is a government problem.

This may anger many conservatives–especially those who don’t necessarily call themselves “Republicans”–but the GOP establishment has essentially said that impeaching Obama is off the table. As much as I despise this president, I have to agree with the decision.

According to The Washington Examiner’s Paul Bedard: “Despite anger in many quarters of the nation over the president’s prisoner swap, Republicans are backing off impeachment threats because they fear it would rally President Obama’s Democratic base and kill the GOP’s chances to win the Senate, according to congressional insiders and sources.”

Sources tell Bedard that the GOP establishment think that launching any impeachment efforts now would only rally the Democrats right before the 2014 general elections.

Though I am no fan of the GOP establishment, this is sensible thinking, really.

But I would also say that there is no point launching any impeachment efforts after the election, either.

Questions on Bergdahl POW Release: Dad a Muslim Symp? Soldier Deserted? Obama’s Actions Illegal?

With Update: More Anti-American Tweets from Robert Bergdahl…

There are an awful lot of unanswered questions and controversies in this POW release of US soldier Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Firstly, it seems he actually deserted the army, he didn’t just get accidentally captured. Secondly, it seems his father might be in sympathy with our Muslim enemies. Last, Obama’s action in negotiating with the terrorists for his release may have violated the law because he did it all secretly without telling Congress.

There is a story from a member of Bowe’s own unit that details his weirdo behavior, wacky ideas, and ultimate desertion. According to one of the soldiers who served with Bergdahl, he didn’t get captured after wandering off. He was in the process of deserting the Army when he got captured.

In this soldier’s telling, Bergdahl was making all sorts of strange claims–he said he once beat up drug dealers back home and that he once joined the French Foreign Legion and he did neither–and kept telling his troop mates that he was going to become a mercenary so he could shoot people.

In one part of this soldier’s story, Bergdahl sent all his belongings home just before he disappeared into Taliban country. Why would he do that unless he intended to leave?

Then the idiot ended up captured by the Taliban after he deserted to go become a “mercenary,” whatever he thought that was?

After several weeks of scandalous failure to provide timely healthcare to our military veterans, some dying waiting for care that would never come, the Veteran’s Administration has now decided to allow veterans to pursue more private healthcare options to improve their treatment. But isn’t government turning to the private sector in stark contrast to the theme of the age of Obama, one that holds that private business “didn’t build that” and that we need to further empower government?

On May 24, the Associated Press reported that VA chief Eric Shinseki has announced a new plan for VA hospitals and healthcare providers to work more with private doctors. Shinseki told the press that the VA is “increasing the care we acquire in the community through non-VA care.”

Shinseki makes this concession as 26 VA facilities thus far have come under investigation for forcing sick veterans to wait for months to receive medical care. Up to 40 or more veterans died waiting for care on these lists.

For the last two years many businesses have been warning that because Obamacare will hurt them so badly they will cease offering employees healthcare and dump employees onto the Obamacare exchanges. But now the IRS has ruled that business will not be allowed to do this and this move guarantees that companies will begin a massive wave of layoffs to make up the costs.

An article in The New York Times relays the bad news to employers that no matter what they thought they were going to do, they are stuck with the massive new costs of Obamacare and they won’t be able to escape that massive tax increase by just closing out their healthcare benefits.

“Many employers,” the Times reported on May 25,”had concluded that it would be cheaper to provide each employee with a lump sum of money to buy insurance on an exchange, instead of providing coverage directly.”

Fox News will present the one-hour special, hosted by Bret Baer, focusing on the National Security Agency (NSA). The special takes viewers inside the operational heart of the NSA’s headquarters. The program will feature interviews from those within the agency as well as the agency’s critics, including Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), General Keith Alexander and General Michael Hayden, among others.

The special will air on May 10 at 10 PM Eastern. Don’t miss the broadcast, but if you do it will be rebroadcast on Sunday, May 11, at 9PM Eastern.

The following guests will appear with FNC’s Bret Baer:
Senator Rand Paul (R-KY)
General Michael Hayden, Former Director of NSA (1999 – 2005)
General Keith Alexander, Former Director of NSA (2005 – 2014)
James Bamford, Author of “The Puzzle Palace” and “The Shadow Factory”
Matthew Aid, NSA Historian and author of “The Secret Sentry”
Bart Gellman, Pulitzer Prize-Winning Intelligence Reporter
Thomas Drake, Former Senior Executive of NSA, Whistleblower
Dennis Kucinich, Former U.S. Representative D-OH)

Mass. Democrat Says Gov’t Should Control Media

That darned old media is just out of control and filled with “hate crimes,” Senator Ed Markey (D, Mass.) says. So, he thinks the best solution is that government should control everything we see and hear. What could go wrong with that, Mr. Orwell?

Markey has proposed a tax dollar-wasting “study” to find ways to force broadcast media from showing “hate crimes” to we stupid, uneducated Americans. Markey is here to save us from ourselves, you see.

As to that whole First Amendment, freedom of speech thing? Markey doesn’t see any reason why that should be a problem. Why? Well, he doesn’t really say, but just take his word for it, won’t you? He should change his name from Markey to Malarkey.

Of course, not everyone is hailing Malarkey’s idea as such a great idea. Gene Policinski, who works at the First Amendment Center, says that this is something we’d better notice. “Anytime government in any form or level looks to study our speech–even something that we might all consider detestable speech–we need to pay attention.”

CA Candidate That Lobbied For Obamacare Running as… a Republican?

May 1, 2014 | Filed Under Anti-Americanism, Budget, Business, California, Congress, Constitution, Democrats/Leftists, Economy/Finances, Elections, Ethics, GOP, Government Corruption, Health, House of Representatives, Liberals, Lobbyists, Obamacare, President, Progressives, Republicans, Taxes, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

Politics might make strange bedfellows, but this one really takes the cake. In California Elizabeth Emken is running for the 7th District U.S. House seat in an attempt to unseat Democrat Ami Bera. But even though Emken was a lobbyist for Obamacare, she is strangely running as a Republican and using Bera’s support for Obamacare as a weapon against him.

A recent fundraising email that Emken sent out, for instance, states: “As you pay your federal taxes today, I thought you’d like to know how much more Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Ami Bera have signed you up to pay over the next 10 years. Obamacare alone will cost the federal government $1.4 trillion to expand and subsidize health insurance coverage.”

“And to add insult to injury, the IRS is in charge of enforcing it,” her email continues. It ends saying, “I don’t know about you, but I believe we are taxed enough already. We need leaders who are willing to stand up for the taxpayers and help create a tax environment that encourages growth and productivity, not a government that punishes you for success.”

This is all good stuff and the standard GOP line against Obamacare. So, why is this so odd coming from Emken?
