“Reporter to Obama Spokesman Josh Earnest:”Don’t Be Absurd With Us””

He was not only being absurd, he was being condescending.

The Chief White House Correspondent with CBS News, Major Garrett, became understandably frustrated with Obama Regime spokesman Josh Earnest after Earnest laughed off and evaded answering questions about the U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services ordering enough green paper to make 34 million green cards and whether the order is related to Obama’s unconstitutional “pen and phone” amnesty for illegal aliens promise, or is simply “coincidental.”

“Eric Holder: ‘I take personally as a failure’ the inability to pass gun control”

Holder seems to be unaware of what his job is. He is Attorney General. That job tasks him with upholding the laws of the country. What he is regretting here is not that. It is the establishment of new law. That is not his job. It is the job of the Congress to create new laws.

It is past time that this power-hungry black power activist leave the Justice Department. He is incompetent and he chooses whether to pursue a defendant based on the color of his skin, not on whether he has broken any laws.

I fear that this President will replace him with someone equally evil and equally biased activist.

This story is from the Washington Times:

I think the inability to pass reasonable gun safety laws after the Newtown massacre is something that weighs heavily on my mind,” Mr. Holder said during an interview with CNN.

He was speaking of the White House push to pass a federal background check mandate for all commercial gun sales, as well as an outright ban on so-called assault weapons and large-capacity ammunition magazines, in the wake of the December 2012 school tragedy.”

Remember, Obama Care Is Just The First Step Toward National Health Care

Harry Reid was not the only one to say so. Now we see how it was designed to fail.

FIRST STEP: Obamacare is only the first step to a more fully-socialized single-payer health care system, according to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, right.

HHS-Funded Study: Obamacare Will Suffer ‘Death Spiral’ If Subsidies Fail

The Obama administration has funded a new study by top consulting firm RAND Health that startlingly finds that if taxpayer subsidies are eliminated, Obamacare exchanges will fall into a “death spiral.”

The study comes in the wake of a number of lawsuits which are challenging the Obama administration’s implementation of Obamacare subsidies. Three lawsuits have made it to U.S. Circuit Courts, just one step from the Supreme Court, arguing that the text of the Affordable Care Act allows premium subsidies for state-run exchanges only. (RELATED: Second Court Strikes Down Obamacare Subsidies In Federal Exchanges)”

It’s always been about the subsidies. Federal subsidies were included in the Affordable Care Act to make the insurance premiums affordable to Americans in need of health insurance. But subsidies have a history of being reversed when political winds change direction. When that happens people will no longer get help with their insurance premiums from Uncle Sam. What will they do? They’ll stop paying.

This has all been made more complicated because many states refused to set up exchanges, forcing the estamlishment of federal ones. The courts have said, twice now, that people who got insurance through federal exchanges do not qualify for the mandated subsidies.

In the process of all this the companies that provide insurance will decide it is no longer profitable to do so. This has already started. When people don’t buy insurance, whether because they can’t afford it or because it’s not available, Democrats will try to ride to the rescue with single-payer nationalized health-care plans.

It’s all part of the plan.

I Had Heard About This But It Wasn’t ‘Til This Morning I Saw It

It’s not just women who feel unsafe because of his (in)actions. President Obama has made the United States – Indeed, the world – less safe. We are in a more precarious and tenuous position in almost every way than we were when he was elected.

Tina Brown: Obama Makes Women Feel Unsafe

For women, I don’t think he makes them feel unsafe. They feel unsafe economically, they’re feeling unsafe with regard to ISIS, they’re feeling unsafe about Ebola . . .

I think they’re beginning to feel a bit like Obama’s that guy in the corner office who’s too cool for school, calls a meeting, says “This has to change,” doesn’t put anything in place to make sure it does change. Then it goes wrong, and he’s blaming everybody.”

“Report says U.S. may OK more centrifuges in Iran nuclear talks”

That headline is deceiving. It should read, “Report says Obama may OK more centrifuges in Iran nuclear talks”, because he is doing this without the consent of the Congress or the people.

Here we go again with amateur hour. Obama says ahead of time what he will give but does not say what he will require in return. He is willing to allow Iran to install thousands more centrifuges and lift sanctions.

The Iranian leaders know full well that this is just his opening bid – that they can get more by just demanding it. They also know he will accept promises from them that they have no intention of keeping.

iran centrifuges

The Obama administration has sweetened its offer to Iran in ongoing nuclear negotiations, saying it might accept Tehran operating 4,000 centrifuges, up from the previous 1,300, according to a semiofficial Iranian news agency.

The Mehr news agency also said Monday that Iran and the six world powers seeking to negotiate a nuclear deal remained divided over how much uranium-enrichment capacity the Middle East nation should be allowed to maintain, and how to lift punitive sanctions from its economy.”

So Obama Is The Second Coming – Or Something

Have you read Barbara A. Thompson’s book, “The Gospel According to Apostle Barack: In Search of a More Perfect Political Union as “Heaven Here on Earth”?

the gospel according to apostle barack

Thompson is an academic, a Professor with Florida A&M University.

Prof. Barbara Thompson

Prof. Barbara Thompson

The College Fix tells us about the book: “PROFESSOR’S BOOK HAILS ‘APOSTLE BARACK,’ COMPARES HIM TO JESUS”. They also tell us:

Professor Barbara Thompson, its author, told the school’s student newspaper during a book signing Tuesday that the 220-page undertaking, largely a compilation of his speeches, was a result of divine inspiration:

Her son … was the impetus behind the book. After a bad accident, Barbara Thompson prayed for her son to be healed. After her son’s healing, she had a dream when the spirit of God spoke to her and told her to ‘go on a journey with apostle Barack.’ …

Apostle, a leader with a new cause, is how Thompson defines Obama.

“He walks the earth for a more equalized, more middle class and working poor society,” she said. She compared apostle Barack to apostles like Jesus and Martin Luther King Jr.”

… (During her book signing event) she provided a complete breakdown of the good that has happened during the President’s 4-year term. Healthcare, the economy, education and federal initiatives interests are the ‘Good news’ from the apostle.”

Gay Patriot quotes from her book:

[A]s I began to contemplate ways to assist Barack in his 2012 re-election bid something miraculous happened. I felt God’s (His) Spirit beckoning me in my dreams at night. Listening, cautiously, I learned that Jesus walked the earth to create a more civilized society, Martin (Luther King) walked the earth to create a more justified society, but, Apostle Barack, the name he was called in my dreams, would walk the earth to create a more equalized society, for the middle class and working poor. Apostle Barack, the next young leader with a new cause, had been taken to the mountaintop and allowed to see over the other side. He had the answers to unlock the kingdom of “heaven here on earth” for his followers. The answers were repeated – over and over – in speeches Barack had made from his presidential announcement to his inaugural address. Those speeches or his teaching.s contained the answers to the middle class and working poor people living in a “heaven here on earth.” For when the answers were unlocked and enacted, Apostle Barack’s vision of America would be realized.”

She sounds like a nut. It looks like her students think so, too. Florida A&M’s professor ratings have comments from students. Two comments:

“Doesn’t have a clue.”
and
” WORST TEACHER..EVER! she has the worst attitude and is not willing to help students RUNNN!!!”

These people are teaching our kids to be insane.

Coal-Fired Power Plants In Arizona To Shut Down

More federal BS caused by fear of non-existent global warming. If these plants are shut down the Valley of the Sun will empty out. No one will live there without electrical energy to operate air conditioning.

This is from AZCentral:

SRP: Impossible to meet EPA coal edict on time

Salt River Project officials say it will be impossible to meet the EPA’s proposed carbon rules for power plants in the time frame the regulators suggest, and that the plan will require significant new infrastructure.

The Environmental Protection Agency last summer issued the first proposed rules for regulating emissions from existing power plants that contribute to global warming.

They aim to reduce carbon emissions from power plants 30 percent by 2030, although individual state targets vary widely. Arizona has the second-highest target among all the states, with the EPA expectation that the state could reduce the carbon intensity of its power generation 52 percent by 2030.”

WaPo: “The government wants to study ‘social pollution’ on Twitter”

‘Social Pollution.’ Now there’s a new term. What does it mean? It means any information that is not approved by the regime.

George Orwell predicted this back in 1949. His book, Nineteen Eighty-Four, coined terms that have become parts of English lexicon; terms like Big Brother, Newspeak, and thoughtcrime.

big-brother-watching-obamacartoon

The National Science Foundation , a federal agency whose mission is to “promote the progress of science; to advance the national health, prosperity and welfare; and to secure the national defense,” is funding a project to collect and analyze your Twitter data.

The project is being developed by researchers at Indiana University, and its purported aim is to detect what they deem “social pollution” and to study what they call “social epidemics,” including how memes — ideas that spread throughout pop culture — propagate. What types of social pollution are they targeting? “Political smears,” so-called “astroturfing” and other forms of “misinformation.”

How Many Ways Has CDC Wasted Money Rather Than Planning For Actual Diseases?

We listed some in our post yesterday but we missed some. There are other examples of waste but not many are as striking as their 36 page Zombie Pandemic Preparedness 101 Publication.

So, if I read this correctly, the Centers for Disease Control of the United States has been totally corrupted by childish amateurs who demand funding increases and use the money on everything but Diseases. They design and manufacture 36-page comics about zombies, they fund studies about why lesbians tend to be fat, and why people who ride motorcycles should wear helmets.

But they are completely unprepared for the introduction of a deadly virus like Ebola that has been around since the seventies. Their inaction on preparation, care, and prevention has caused at least two health-care workers to contract the disease. Who knows how many more there will be?

They don’t issue actual ‘Rules’ about how to prevent the spread. Instead they rely on ‘Protocols’ which are insufficient and dangerous and they ask people who have been exposed to voluntarily go into seclusion during the incubation period. As we have seen those people agree to do so and then repeatedly violate their quarantine.

It’s not just the leader of the CDC, Tom Freiden, who should be fired and prosecuted for negligence. It is also every person who played silly games like this. Also, whomever hired them.

Homeland Security Is Expediting Visa Requests From People From Ebola Countries

Why would they do this?

It’s making my tinfoil hat make sense.

The Obama administration has led this nation into a myriad of crises that are making citizens fear their government. Some say it’s because they are incompetent. Others say it is by design. But what design would explain why they not only don’t restrict travel from Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia, but actually encourage it – and make it easier and faster?

Frontier Air Says Second Ebola Nurse Was Symptomatic

Amber Vinson

Amber Vinson

And an employee of the Centers for Disease Control told her to go ahead and fly even though she had a fever.

I don’t believe the assertion that her fever was 99.5 degrees. Either she was lying to the CDC or we are being lied to.

Statement by Frontier CEO David Siegel via the Denver Channell:

At 1:55 p.m. MDT (Wednesday) Frontier was notified by the CDC that the passenger may have been symptomatic earlier than initially suspected; including the possibility of possessing symptoms while onboard the flight.

“In light of the new information, Frontier determines that the aircraft will remain out of service and ferries it back to Denver from Cleveland without customers. The flight departs at 6:20 p.m. EDT and arrives in Denver at 7:20 p.m. MDT. In an abundance of caution, it is determined that the aircraft will receive a fourth cleaning since the infected customer was onboard. Though not required, this cleaning will consist of the removal of seat covers and carpets in the immediate vicinity of the passenger seat. The airline will also change the environmental filters onboard.

“NOTE: These extraordinary actions went beyond CDC recommendations. These steps were taken out of concern for the safety of our customers and employees. Steps such as removing the aircraft from service, removing aircraft seat covers and carpet and replacing environmental filters as well as placing the crew on paid leave were not requested nor mandated by the CDC. Frontier expects that the aircraft will return to service in a few days.”

“The Centers for Everything But Disease Control”

Combover Tom

Combover Tom

‘Combover’ Thomas Freiden, the head of the Centers For Disease Control, like bureaucrats everywhere, says that the inadequate response his bureaucracy has shown with the Ebola outbreak in the United States is because the CDC didn’t get enough funding to do a good job.

It’s a lie and we know it. That’s what Obama administration officials do. Now the actual facts are available.

Michelle Malkin has dug up the numbers. She finds that CDC funding is 200% greater than it was in the year 2000, at $7 Billion. She also tells us that the CDC has been wasting huge chunks of money on programs that have nothing whatsoever to do with ‘Diseases’.

This is from Michelle Malkin:

At $7 billion, the Centers for Disease Control 2014 budget is nearly 200 percent bigger now than it was in 2000. Those evil, stingy Republicans actually approved CDC funding increases in January larger than what President Obama requested.”

So, in spite of what Democrats have been saying it was not Republican sequesters that caused the insufficient funding. Where did the money go?

Mandatory motorcycle helmet laws.

$10 million last year to study violent video games and media images

Strategies for preventing gun violence

Playground equipment. The CDC’s “Injury Centers” (Did you know there are 13 of them?) have crafted a “national action plan” and funded countless studies to prevent boo-boos and accidents on the nation’s playgrounds.

Social norming” in the schools”

Which of these are ‘Disease’? None. They are social engineering experiments. They are meddling at a federal level and the money that was spent on them could not go to infectious disease control.

There is a lot more here. It’s worth a read.

Inconsistent Messaging: “CDC: You Can Give—But Can’t Get—Ebola on a Bus”

Either they think Americans are too stupid to see the inconsistency in a message like this or they, themselves, are.

Really – are the people who are sworn to protect us all morons?

DR. THOMAS FRIEDEN-AP PHOTO-JOHN AMIS-CROP

(CNSNews.com) – Dr. Tom Frieden, director for the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), said during a telephone press briefing Wednesday that you cannot get Ebola by sitting next to someone on a bus, but that infected or exposed persons should not ride public transportation because they could transmit the disease to someone else.”

Epidemic, Pandemic, We Have Been Here Before…

“The last time a president tried to make a disease a national-security issue, he helped trigger a global pandemic that killed 50 million people.”

… During the Wilson Administration. And Woodrow Wilson made it worse – far worse. Barack Obama is not the first President we have had who stupidly put politics ahead of American citizens’s lives.

Woodrow Wilson

Woodrow Wilson

But playing “national security” progressive politics with public health can bring outright disaster. When the United States entered World War I, Woodrow Wilson played the national-security card early and often. The war effort became an excuse for everything from jailing political opponents to spying on everyday Americans. But, when the president used a global war as an excuse to preempt sound public-health policy, he reaped a global catastrophe.

In 1917, the war to end all wars was well under way. At Camp Funston within the boundaries of Fort Riley, Kansas, sergeants were turning recruits into doughboys. During their training, the soldiers picked up backpacks, rifles, helmets—and a new strain of flu. They carried all these with them as they traveled from the camp to the railroads, the big cities, the ports and, ultimately, overseas. On every step of the way to the trenches in Western Europe, they spread the deadly disease.

When news of the epidemic reached Washington, the White House decided it was a national-security problem. The British and French desperately needed reinforcements to turn the tide of the war; getting our boys over there was far more important than stopping the spread of the flu over here.

The administration insisted on pressing full speed ahead with the deployments. The White House also wanted every factory worker on the job and every red-blooded American to show up at mass rallies to buy more war bonds—all activities that spread the disease more quickly.”

And here is a point I never knew:

In the end, more died from the pandemic than from the war.

Nina Pham’s Boyfriend Admitted For Ebola-Like Symptoms

Ebola Nurse Nina Pham

Ebola Nurse Nina Pham

This beautiful young woman is Nina Pham, the nurse who contracted Ebola after ministering to the man who came from West Africa carrying the virus.

Now Ms. Pham’s boyfriend has been admitted for Ebola-like symptoms.

The head of the Centers for Disease Control, Dr. Tom Frieden blamed Ms. Pham for her own exposure for, “Not following protocol”. Health care workers have been, however, complaining that CDC is not providing them with care guides.

As a result, the CDC has issued ‘new, improved’ Ebola care guidelines.

Ebola care instructions at a Dallas hospital and across the country were changed by federal officials on Monday — a tacit admission that training and procedures used for America’s first case of the disease had come up short.
The changes were prompted by the discovery that a nurse at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas had become infected while treating Thomas Eric Duncan, the Liberian man who died of Ebola in the hospital last Wednesday.”

Yes, these are the exact same people who want to manage the health care for all Americans. So far they have been unable to put together a health care website that either works or is secure. Their stated goal is a single-payer health system with them managing it.

Now we have the makings of an epidemic on our shores with the spread of Ebola. It has already begun to spread and the officials whose job it is to prevent epidemics – and to properly care for patients and health-care professionals is failing on every front and blaming that failure on the people who are infected.

They are incompetent and should be prosecuted for their failures.

“Republicans Appropriated More for the CDC This Year Than Obama Requested”

joe-wilson-i-was-totally-right-after-all-obama-was-lying

Lying liars are lying again. The Obama White House cut the budget for the Centers for Disease Control after the Congress gave them more money than they asked for. Now that CDC is complaining about budget cuts being the reason they have stepped in it with Ebola control, the White House is trying to blame it on the GOP led Congress.

It’s all lies

This is from Red State: The Democrats would have you believe that the very same government that could not build an Obamacare website with hundreds of millions of dollars could somehow cure Ebola yesterday with more money.

There is just one problem: facts.

According to the Atlanta Business Chronicle, in January the CDC won in the budget deal.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will see an 8.2 percent budget increase for fiscal 2014, thanks to a $1.1 trillion spending bill announced by Congress Jan. 13.”

But not just that. There was also this nugget of news:

This influx of cash will raise the CDC budget to $6.9 billion, which is $567 million more than it received in 2013. This is more than the agency anticipated, because the president’s fiscal year 2014 budget request for it was just $6.6 billion — a decrease of $270 million from fiscal 2012.””

Then there is this story from Sweetness And Light:

Obama Cut CDC’s 2014 Preparedness Budget By $270M

Apr 10, 2013 (CIDRAP News) – The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) takes a hit of about $270 million in the Obama administration’s proposed fiscal year 2014 budget, including significant cuts to biodefense and emergency preparedness programs, officials revealed today.”

Democrats Are Failing The Ebola Test

Ebola is a frightening disease. It causes people to bleed to death from every orifice.

ebola eyes

Ebola first touched humans in West Africa. It simmered there for years without spreading to the rest of the world. Now we have it in the United States. The Obama administration allowed it to come here and has lied about it. They told us it was not contagious. They told us it was our ‘Just Desserts’ for slavery. They refuse to restrict travelers from West African countries from travelling to the United States.

The Obama administration and its Democrat sycophants brought this terrible disease to our shores. This was a Democrat decision. They have failed their simplest charge – to keep Americans safe.

I just heard on the news that there is a second American who has been diagnosed with Ebola. I don’t mean the Dallas Nurse. She was the first. Now, they say, there is a second.

We who actually have thinking brains knew that this would happen as soon as Ebola reached our country. Now it has and it is spreading.

The virus is virulent. The mortality rate is terrifying. We know what the result will be. We know how to deal with it but our representatives are not taking it seriously. They are not restricting traffic from Ebola areas. They are allowing innocent people to be exposed. They are allowing them to become infected and they are making excuses.

This is the fault of the leftists. They are the people who say, “Never let a crisis go to waste”. Well, we have a crisis – and it’s their fault. They care more for politics and power than they care for the people.

But we knew that didn’t we?

We are three weeks away from what is unquestionably the most important election in the history of our Republic. It is time that the voters across America know what leftists have done to them. It is time to destroy the evil influence that exists in our country.

What will they come up with next?

Today we learned that another thing she said on the Sunday talk show was a lie. She said that Turkey has agreed to let the United States use its air bases.

ISIS Using Chemical Weapons On Kurds

Another group ignoring President Obama’s phony ‘Red Line’. The Jerusalem Post has a story about this. They don’t want to admit it fully so they are using a questioning headline: “Report: Photographs of Kurdish fighters’ bodies suggest chemical weapons use by ISIS”.

Workers hold dummy chemical World War Two grenade during demonstration at GEKA in Munster

The Post article refers to an article in another source: “‘MERIA’ Journal obtains pictures of fighters killed in July battle with Islamic State marked by “burns and white spots…without any visible wounds or external bleeding.”

MERIA does in fact have a number of images of Kurdish bodies. I looked. They are not for those with objections to viewing images of dead people but they do show pretty irrefutable proof of chemical weapons use.

It was during this assault on Kobani that evidence emerged which appeared to point to the use by the Islamic State on at least one occasion of some kind of chemical agent against the Kurdish fighters of the YPG (Peoples’ Protection Units).
The July offensive commenced on July 2nd. According to Kurdish activists, the use of the chemical agent took place on July 12th, in the village of Avdiko, in the eastern part of the Kobani enclave (now in IS hands.) [i]
Nisan Ahmed, health minister of the Kurdish authority in Kobani, established a medical team to examine the incident. According to Ahmed, the bodies of three Kurdish fighters showed no signs of damage from bullets. Rather “burns and white spots on the bodies of the dead indicated the use of chemicals, which led to death without any visible wounds or external bleeding.”

This will not interrupt the President’s golf game.

Gwyneth Paltrow Seems To Be Following George Soros’ Past

Soros was born a Hungarian Jew. During the war he posed as a Christian and worked with a government official as his ‘Godfather’.

When the Nazis occupied Budapest in 1944, George Soros’ father was a successful lawyer. He lived on an island in the Danube and liked to commute to work in a rowboat. But knowing there were problems ahead for the Jews, he decided to split his family up. He bought them forged papers and he bribed a government official to take 14-year-old George Soros in and swear that he was his Christian godson. But survival carried a heavy price tag. While hundreds of thousands of Hungarian Jews were being shipped off to the death camps, George Soros accompanied his phony godfather on his appointed rounds, confiscating property from the Jews.”

“Health care worker at Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas tests positive for Ebola”

Spreading… Just in time for the November elections. Let that not be forgotten. President Obama has well and truly poisoned the well.

Police stood guard outside the apartment of a hospital worker and a yellow barrel that holds hazardous materials on Sunday.

Police stood guard outside the apartment of a hospital worker and a yellow barrel that holds hazardous materials on Sunday.

Update at 8:45 a.m.: The infected health care worker detected a fever Friday night and apparently drove to the Presbyterian emergency department.

Officials indicated that it took the patient 90 minutes after leaving the East Dallas apartment to be placed in isolation..

A blood sample was sent to the state health lab in Austin, which gave a preliminary Ebola confirmation Saturday night.

Local officials, including Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins and Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings, were notified about midnight of the new infection.

The hospital has not explained how the second victim was infected. Nether the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention nor the state health department were represented at the news conference Sunday morning.
Update at 8 a.m.: Officials have announced that a Dallas apartment complex on Marquita Avenue, near Greenville Avenue, has been decontaminated.

Neighbors in the area, which is near Greenville Avenue, have been notified that a person with Ebola had been living near them, officials say.

The health worker who has contracted Ebola was not among the people whom public health workers had identified as being at high risk of exposure to Thomas Eric Duncan, the first person to die of Ebola in the United States.”
