Another Racial Attack On University Of Illinois Campus…

… This makes 45 such attacks in the area since the first of October.

SEVERAL U OF I STUDENTS ATTACKED BY ROVING GANG NEAR CHAMPAIGN CAMPUS, POLICE SAY

The ABC7 I-Team is reporting a rash of random attacks near the University of Illinois flagship campus. A safety alert for students was posted after Champaign police say five students were jumped and beaten by a roving gang over the weekend.

One-by-one early Saturday morning, a gang of men attacked several people as they walked down streets near the U of I campus. For about an hour, the gang roamed a small section of Champaign and police say they targeted random victims, beating them to the ground, in what resembles a big city gang ritual.”

Did I say racial? Yes. Here’s why:

Investigators describe the attacks as black males, 25 years old, and each wearing dark clothing, possibly driving in a blue sedan or SUV.

While police have not publicly identified suspects or a motive for the mob violence, random-victim beatings are consistent with some street gang initiations. “

U of I must be a gun-free zone.

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.

NYT Publishes Officer Darren Wilson’s Story. Animals In Ferguson Promote Killing

Just how satisfying can murder be? If Officer Wilson is not indicted it looks like there will be killing.

xspooky-police-.jpg.pagespeed.ic.R-450M0d8F

The story in the New York Times tells us that Wilson, “… Is Said to Recount a Struggle”. That wording leads us to believe that Wilson’s story is not truthful. That kind of reporting is inflammatory as we are seeing. There are many in Ferguson, MO who want violence, as the post above shows. The fact that forensic evidence supports Officer Wilson’s story means nothing to them:

The forensics tests showed Mr. Brown’s blood on the gun, as well as on the interior door panel and on Officer Wilson’s uniform. Officer Wilson told the authorities that Mr. Brown had punched and scratched him repeatedly, leaving swelling on his face and cuts on his neck.”

There have been no shortage of death threats. The one above is not the only one:

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.”

Instant Justice For Would-Be Purse Snatcher

I laughed out loud. This is in Chile in the city of Concepcion.

Chubby opportunist Pablo, a serial thief, was left prisoner on the bus with one hand trapped inside the door, which he had tried to force open when he realised they were closing.

And worse was to come – when the hero driver radioed police and then took out a baseball bat he kept for self defence and started bashing the criminal around the body.

The bag thief, said to have several assault, theft and robbery convictions, tried to wriggle out of arrest by claiming his victim was really an aunt called Maria who lived in the countryside and he had been joking with her.

But the driver told him in slang Chilean: “I’m badder than you” – before reducing him to tears as he continued to whack him.

Police were waiting at the next stop and handcuffed the thief before taking his smartly-dressed victim away so she could make a statement.”

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?

This Is What Glenn Beck Does Best

He has a copy of the CDC procedures that the infected nurses followed. He takes the time to suit up like they did and then has helpers simulate projectile vomiting and diarrhea. Then he disrobes like the nurses had to.

He shows us all plainly just how ill-prepared the CDC instructions are.

This is worth sharing.

James Wesley, Rawles on Ebola

Rawles is the founder and owner of Survivalblog.com.

He says, “Consider This Your LAST Wake-Up Call.” He also addresses some very basic subjects – things like whether this Ebola scare could be used as an excuse to declare martial law and how to deal with dead bodies during a pandemic. He also advises staying home during an epidemic. That will require stocks of things like food and water.

It’s all audio so you can turn it on in one tab and listen to it while you go to other places on the web.

“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.”

“Medical Research Org CIDRAP: ‘Ebola Transmittable By Air'”

This may be a false alarm but CIDRAP sounds like a reputable organization. Then again, it could be that airborne transmission has been documented for some time and the CDC has not told us… Didn’t want to start a panic, you know.

People who were suited up properly, like the nurses in Dallas, have contracted the virus. How did that happen? Also, the Centers for Disease Control is revising their protocols for the handling of Ebola patients. There is a reason.

ebola-hazmat-suit-ap

From Breitbart:

The highly respected Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy (CIDRAP) at the University of Minnesota just advised the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) that “there is scientific and epidemiologic evidence that Ebola virus has the potential to be transmitted via infectious aerosol particles,” including exhaled breath.”

CIDRAP is warning that surgical facemasks do not prevent transmission of Ebola, and healthcare professionals (HCP) must immediately be outfitted with full-hooded protective gear and powered air-purifying respirators.
CIDRAP since 2001 has been a global leader in addressing public health preparedness regarding emerging infectious diseases and bio-security responses. CIDRAP’s opinion on Ebola virus is there are “No proven pre- or post-exposure treatment modalities;” “A high case-fatality rate;” and “Unclear modes of transmission.”

“Appeals court unblocks Texas Voter ID law”

Voter-ID-550x327

The State of Texas can use its new voter ID law again in next’s month’s election, a federal appeals court ruled Tuesday, putting on hold an order a district court issued just last week barring enforcement of the law.

“Based primarily on the extremely fast-approaching election date, we STAY the district court’s judgment pending appeal,” 5th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals Judge Edith Clement wrote, in a ruling joined by Judge Catharina Haynes (and posted here). “This is not a run-of-the-mill case; instead, it is a voting case decided on the eve of the election….The judgment below substantially disturbs the election process of the State of Texas just nine days before early voting begins. Thus, the value of preserving the status quo here is much higher than in most other contexts.”

The third appeals court judge on the panel, Gregg Costa, agreed with the decision to stay the district court ruling, but did not join their opinion. He said he was troubled about the prospect of an election being held under discriminatory rules.”

Young John Kerry Lying To Congress

Now the Secretary of State, John Kerry insists on two things: Global warming is the biggest threat to the world, and the Islamic State is not Islamic. Both are lies.

Kerry wants to use a different name to describe IS, one that does not include the word, ‘Islamic’. From the Weekly Standard:

Following the lead of Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius, Secretary of State John Kerry Sunday began using the Arabic acronym “Daesh” at times when referring to the Islamic State (ISIL or ISIS). Kerry was in Egypt for a meeting with Egyptian foreign minister Shoukry, and spoke extensively about the terrorist group in remarks following the meeting. The new terminology appears to be an attempt to bolster the secretary’s contention that there is “nothing whatsoever about ISIL that is related to Islam.”

As stupid as Kerry is, Walid Shoebat, who did not grow up sailing Cape Cod, but rather was raised in Palestine says something entirely different.

Walid Shoebat

Walid Shoebat

I would say it is very likely that Shoebat knows a bit more about Islam than Kerry does. Shoebat says,

Islam is a religion and a state. And it is impossible to separate the two.”

Apologies! Snyderman Should Be Jailed

NBC’s Snyderman Apologizes for Ebola Quarantine Violation

NBC medical correspondent Dr. Nancy Snyderman

NBC medical correspondent Dr. Nancy Snyderman

Dr. Snyderman is a medical doctor. One of her news team was diagnosed with Ebola while working in Liberia. Her entire team, including herself, were exposed to the patient and were placed in voluntary quarantine. Dr. Snyderman and other members violated that quarantine several times, possibly exposing unnumbered others.

Dr. Snyderman has apologized and the state of New Jersey has revoked their voluntary quarantine and placed them in Mandatory Quarantine because she and her crew can not be trusted.

While under voluntary quarantine guidelines, which called for our team to avoid public contact for 21 days, members of our group violated those guidelines and understand that our quarantine is now mandatory until 21 days have passed. We remain healthy and our temperatures are normal.
“As a health professional I know that we have no symptoms and pose no risk to the public, but I am deeply sorry for the concerns this episode caused. We are thrilled that Ashoka is getting better and our thoughts continue to be with the thousands affected by Ebola whose stories we all went to cover.”

I would say she should be jailed and her license to practice medicine should be stripped from her. She is one of the worst examples of irresponsible people. It is people like Snyderman who will ensure that Ebola remains out of control.

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.”

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.

Turkish officials heard that and said, in effect, “Not so fast. There is no such deal”.
