As the Ebola crises worsens and it becomes clear that the Obama administration and the Centers for Disease Control are operating on incomplete or even false information, Obama’s appointed CDC director is finding mounting criticism of his handling of the crisis.

CDC director Dr. Thomas Frieden was appointed to his position by President Obama in 2009 and now, as the face of the Obama administration’s flawed response to this developing Ebola situation, he faces the toughest task in his long, administrative career.

It is a career that began in New York City in 2002 when Frieden was appointed as the City Health Commissioner. There Frieden was responsible for the political attack on “trans fats,” a campaign that opened the door for mayor Bloomberg’s failed attempt to ban the sale of large sodas and other such nanny state “health” policies.

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?

Obama Covered Up Truth and Illegally Hampered Investigation Into White House Staffer’s Prostitution Charges

Back in 2012 you might recall that the Secret Service got caught up in a prostitution scandal during a Presidential visit to Cartagena, Colombia. Now we find out an even greater truth about the scandal. A White House aide and the son of an influential Democrat was also caught up in the pros scandal but Obama covered it up and pressured the Inspector General to ignore the facts.

The White House aide is named Jonathan Dach. He had the Secret Service deliver prostitutes to his hotel room during the visit. White House Counsel Kathryn Ruemmler “investigated” Dach but her entire “investigation” amounted to “asking” Dach if he was guilty. He said no and they left it at that despite that the Secret Service had presented a mound of evidence to the contrary.

Ruemmler has even been quoted as saying that she wanted to stop any investigation cold.

One senior administration official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive information, said Ruemmler believed it would be a “real scandal” if she had sent “a team of people to Colombia to investigate a volunteer over something that’s not a criminal act…. That would be insane.”

Then, when members of the Inspector General’s investigative team balked at this characterization of Dach’s involvement by White House staffers and when the IG bristled at the White House demands that the investigation be delayed until after the 2012 elections, Obama had members of the team put on administrative leave as punishment.

Poll: Obama’s Presidency is a Failure

A new poll of how people feel about Obama’s presidency is not good for team Obama. It appears that most respondents feel his presidency is a failure.

A new IBD/TIPP poll which ended Friday, last week found that 53 percent characterized Obama as a failed president. This versus only 41 percent who rated it a success. And to show that nearly everyone has an opinion about this president, only 6 percent said they weren’t sure.

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.

On September 29, the AP reported that “Unaccompanied minors… have moved to communities of all sizes, in nearly every state.”

Secret Service Allowed White House Jumper to Run All Throughout the White House

What the heck happened to the Secret Service? Has it been so feminized that now it can’t even protect the president anymore?

We are now learning that the Secret Service couldn’t stop one nutty dude from jumping the White House wrought iron fence and the running all through the White House. Worse, they lied to us by initially saying that they stopped him just inside the entrance at the East Portico of the presidential residence.

But it turns out he ran all around inside the White House before the Secret Service finally stopped him.

We’ve also now been told that alarms called “crash boxes” had been actually turned off and this was another reason the Sec. Serv. couldn’t find the guy.

There was also a dog on hand that no one thought to use.

Secret Service Director Julia Pierson recently said the breach was “unacceptable” to her, before she went back to doing her nails, I guess.

Obama Suddenly Realizes Ebola is a ‘Growing Threat’ to the World

Five months late, President Obama is all of a sudden saying that the Ebola virus poses a “growing threat to regional and global security.” This is after over two thousand Africans have died from the virus. Talk about a day late and a dollar short!

Appearing before African leaders at the United Nations in New York on Thursday, the President said, “There’s still a significant gap between where we are and where we need to be.”

“Stopping Ebola is a priority for the United States,” Obama continued. “We will continue to lead and do our part. But this must also be a priority for the world.”

Last week Obama ordered 3,000 troops to Africa to help fight Ebola as experts began warning that up to five million Africans could die from the virus.

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.

Freedom-Schmeedom: Obama to Force Photographers in National Parks to Get Permits

Ansel Adams made himself and our national parks famous for photographing the natural beauty he found in the great American west. Now, in this land of “freedom and liberty,” Obama plans to prevent any more Ansel Adams by forcing photographers to get permits to be allowed to photograph our parks.

The stunning black and white photos Adams took of the American west, especially Yosemite National Park, are the very ideal of natural beauty preserved by the snap of his lens. Adams roamed freely in this land of the free and captured images that have been beloved by naturalists all around the world.

But now Obama is planning to put a stranglehold on new Ansel Adams by controlling who is *allowed* to take photos in our national parks with a new “permit” system. Worse, Obama plans to charge up to $1,500 for these permits according to a report by the Associated Press.

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.

Food Stamp Sign-ups in Obama’s Illinois Larger Than State’s Job Growth

Obama’s home state of Illinois is struggling to break the Great Recession. A perfect example of this is seen in a recent report that shows that applications for food stamps in the Land of Lincoln is greater than its creation of jobs.

Illinois has had the worst recovery from the recession of any state in the country, the Illinois Policy Institute reported this month. “There are nearly 300,000 fewer Illinoisans working today than in January 2008, and 170,000 fewer payroll jobs. ”

“For every post-recession job created in Illinois, nearly two people have enrolled in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), commonly known as food stamps,” the Institute wrote. “In the recession era, the number of Illinoisans dependent on food stamps has risen by 745,000.”

A Growing Number of Teen Girls in West Volunteering for Islamist Terror Group ISIS

Officials in Austria have gone public with fears that the terror group ISIS may be finding a new wave of recruits among its teenaged girls after a number of girls have run away from home intending to join ISIS forces in Iraq or Syria. Unfortunately, Austria isn’t alone teens are fleeing countries all across the west to join jihadis.

Earlier this year, two teenaged Austrian girls ran off to Syria and soon began posting photos of themselves on their social media accounts toting AK47s, wearing burkas and sporting ISIS regalia. Others have since attempted to run away and join these girls sparking fears among officials that the girls are fostering a sickening trend of wannabe terrorist runaways.

Thanks to their social media updates, Samra Kesinovic, 16 and her friend Sabina Selimovic, 15, have become minor celebrities among many teens in Austria’s Muslim minority community after the two ran away from their homes in Austria and ended up hanging around ISIS in Syria.

This month authorities announced that they apprehended two more teen girls who were trying to find passage through Turkey and into Syria to join the ISIS jihad movement.

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.

It has been 13 years since that horrible day in 2001 when terrorism hit America with a vengeance. But many want to forget and pretend it never happened and we already have a generation of kinds just about to, or soon to enter into their teen years who can’t remember what happened on September 11, 2001. It is up to us to keep the memory of that day alive lest we allow it to be repeated.

But how do we approach that remembrance? But looking at an empty word document sitting ready to be filled with my 9/11 remembrance finds words coming slowly and I find it so hard to start this piece.

But I realized why it is so hard for me to start this piece. I am still furious, feelings are still too raw, I still well up when I see video of the towers falling, my heart still stops when I see that heart-wrenching image of bodies falling from windows hundreds of feet in the air. I still get that dark feeling in the pit of my stomach, the same one I felt that morning in 2001.

It’s all still too emotional to write a mere memorial. Words fail me.

Panera Restaurants Asks Patrons to Leave Guns Behind

The most recent national restaurant chain to demand that customers refrain from carrying their legal firearms into their establishments is Panera Bread, a restaurant with 1,818 locations in 45 states. But is Panera ready to take responsibility for the murders its policy might cause?

The stores known for bread baked fresh daily and gourmet sandwiches has bowed to the liberal, anti-gun group Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America after it had “months of discussion” with the chain.

In a statement Monday the chain claimed that it was only trying to make all customers “feel comfortable and welcome.”

“To this end, we ask that guns not be brought into this environment unless carried by an authorized law enforcement officer,” the statement read. “Panera respects the rights of gun owners, but asks our customers to help preserve the environment we are working to create for our guests and associates.”

In an interview with CNBC, Panera CEO Ron Shaich insisted, “we recognize everyone’s rights, but we also recognize that we are building communities in our cafes and are where people come to catch a breath.”

While Shaich said he is “respectfully requesting” that holders of legal concealed carry permits refrain from carrying inside his stores, he also claimed he would still follow all state and local laws on the matter.

Report: Top CIA Officer in Benghazi Delayed Response to Terror Attack That killed Four Americans

A report from operatives on the ground during the 2012 terror attacks in Behghazi, Libya claims that the top CIA official in the region delayed the rescue attempts that could have saved the lives of the four Americans killed during the attacks, one of whom was our Ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens.

The reports say that this was a “stand down” order, something that all democrats in Congress and the Obama administration claim was never ordered during the attacks.

Fox News’ Bret Baier recently spoke to three security operatives stationed at the secret CIA annex in Benghazi who were involved in the incident. The trio claim that they were ordered not to respond as soon as they could have to save American lives.


These men say they were prevented from rescuing the Americans ultimately killed by terrorists in Benghazi.

The three private security contractors, Kris “Tanto” Paronto, Mark “Oz” Geist, and John “Tig” Tiegen, spoke at length to the Fox News reporter about their experiences during that terrible day. All three said they were ready to go to Ambassador Stevens’ rescue.

One of the operatives, Kris Paronto, a former Army Ranger said, “Five minutes, we’re ready. It was thumbs up, thumbs up, we’re ready to go.”

But the three were told to stand down by a CIA operative they refer to as “Bob.”

A new report released last week revealed the alarming statistic that nearly one in ten workers in California is an illegal immigrant.

The report released by researchers at USC found that nearly ten percent of the Golden State’s workforce is made up of illegal aliens. It was also estimated that at least 2.6 million illegals live in the state. This number is likely far higher, though.

As the LA Times reports, illegals have taken 38 percent of jobs in agriculture, 14 percent in construction, and half have been in the US for at least 10 years.

Pro-amnesty activists point to the study as proof that these illegals “contribute” to the state.

As millions of illegal aliens stream across our southern border bringing poverty, disease, and the destruction of our country, President Obama has finally decided to launch a program to lock down a border… but it isn’t ours. His billion-dollar plan is to help the Nigerians shut down their borders.

After all this time of Americans pleading for the government to lock our border down, apparently Obama suddenly thinks that border security is important, only not for us and in this case to stop terrorism.

Last Thursday the State Department announced that it is launching a border security plan in cooperation with officials from Nigeria and several other nearby African nations such as Cameroon.

Political scientists are not scientists. They are liberal hacks searching for ways to excuse their liberalism. This fact has been fully established with this year’s American Political Science Association convention which featured not a single session on Obama’s failed presidency even as it STILL had multiple sessions attacking George W. Bush.

Paul Rahe, a professor at Hillsdale College, attended this year’s ASPA meeting held in Washington DC and was shocked to find not one of the 1,000 panels dedicated to Obama’s presidency. Not one. And yes, there actually were 1,000 panels. Now, there were several that included Obama as part of an examination of decades of presidents, but no panel was dedicated solely to Obama.

“It was eerie. It was as if there has been no Obama presidency,” Rahe said.

At a ceremony to appoint Texas lawyer Shaaril Zafar as the State Department’s “special representative to Muslim communities,” Secretary of State John Kerry claimed that the Bible commands us to help “Muslim-majority” countries to protect themselves from global warming. So, where are the media to whine that Kerry is trying to set up a “theocracy”?

“Our faiths are inextricably linked on any number of things that we must confront and deal with in policy concepts today. Our faiths are inextricably linked on the environment. For many of us, respect for God’s creation also translates into a duty to protect and sustain his first creation, Earth, the planet,” Kerry blurted out.

“Confronting climate change is, in the long run, one of the greatest challenges that we face, and you can see this duty or responsibility laid out in Scriptures clearly, beginning in Genesis. And Muslim-majority countries are among the most vulnerable. Our response to this challenge ought to be rooted in a sense of stewardship of Earth, and for me and for many of us here today, that responsibility comes from God,” he asserted.

Islam has claimed yet another victim as the same British ISIS jihadist has just released a video showing him beheading Steven Sotloff, another western journalist, and there is a third one waiting his turn.

The new video begins with the scumbag Muslim directly addressing the weakling President, Obama, saying, “I’m back, Obama, and I’m back because of your arrogant foreign policy towards the Islamic State.”

ISIS, the Islamic terror army that has taken large portions of Iraq and Syria and threatens the entire region as well as areas elsewhere in the world, killed western journalist James Foley last month in a video that brought ISIS terrorism to America.

At the end of August Sotlof’s mother recorded a video pleading with the ISIS Muslims to release her son. Many idiots who pretend to be foreign policy and terror experts called her video “brilliant.”

These foolish nabobs imagined that Mrs. Sotlof made some valid points and cut those darn Muslim’s to the quick leaving them no logical choice but to fall to her proper reading of the Quran.

Obama’s Illinois perennially ranks at the very bottom of every statistic that marks a successful state and a new report on America’s “sinkhole states” finds that Illinois again ranks at the very bottom this time for how much state debt each citizen is saddled with.

The statistics gathered by the excellent Chicago-based budget watchdog group Truth In Accounting calculated how much state debt–obligations like pensions, healthcare plans for retirees, etc–each citizen would have to pay to retire the debt in a lump sum.

The group has dubbed the worst states as “America’s Sinkhole States.”

Truth In Accounting found that Connecticut is the worst state in the union with each citizens owing 48 thousand dollars per citizen to retire the debt. But coming in a close second is the state of Illinois with a whopping 43 thousand dollars per citizen in debt.

Pete Kasperowicz found this gem of government nannyism at our nation’s oh, so helpful website of the US Department of Agriculture. It is entitled, “US Forest Service Asks: How Does Your Marshmallow Roast?.”

The nanny-state-styled instructions takes its cue from National Roasted Marshmallow Day (it was August 30, if you care even a little) and takes the time to give us all the safety procedures we’ll need to roast marshmallows without doing egregious harm to our stupid, dumbass selves.

Here is the third paragraph of the Forest Service how-to guide:

Obama’s FBI’s Threat Matrix Excludes Islamic Terror

August 29, 2014 | Filed Under Anti-Americanism, Barack Obama, Crime, Democrats/Leftists, Ethics, FBI, Government, Government Corruption, Homeland Security, Islam, Islamofascism, Liberals, President, Progressives, Religion, Security/Safety, Terrorism, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

As Islam remains the biggest threat facing the world today, Obama’s feckless FBI has released a “threat assessment” report that doesn’t mention Islamic terror at all. According to Obama, it is white people who are the threat.

The FBI’s internal threat report claims that white supremacists, patriot militias, anti-abortion activists, and black separatists are the real threat.

But despite the Boston Marathon bombing, despite stories that some ISIS fighters in Iraq have been discovered to be American citizens, despite that the FBI itself has busted dozens of would-be home-grown Islamic terrorists, Obama’s FBI does not once mention in this report that there could be any Islamic terror threats inside the USA.

No, according to Obama’s FBI it is white people we have to fear. You know, despite that fact that almost no threats from such evil white people have ever occurred.

Illinois Celebrates Loser Adlai Stevenson, Ignores Ronald Reagan

August 28, 2014 | Filed Under Abraham Lincoln, Civil War, Democrats/Leftists, Ethics, Government Corruption, History, Illinois, Liberals, President, Ronald Reagan, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

Leave it to leftist Illinois to use a museum dedicated to celebrating Abraham Lincoln, one of the greatest presidents in history, as a platform to celebrate a loser like Adlai Stevenson while at the same time ignoring Ronald Reagan, a native son, big winner, and another greatest president.

If you think this isn’t just another example of why Illinois is the single worst state in the union in nearly every metric that makes up a successful state, then you are immune to logic.

Illinois spent billions building the Lincoln Library near the state capital in Springfield. The place opened to mixed reviews, but in the modern age, at least Illinois finally recognized one of its greatest Republican Presidents.

That’s all well and good, but now the Lincoln Library is proposing that it dedicate some of its space to a display to celebrate the great Adlai Stevenson, II…. I know what you’re thinking: “Who?”
