AP: “Police Prepare For Grand Jury Decision In Ferguson”

This is a test of the American legal system. It will be a trial to determine if we follow standard legal procedure or if we degenerate into mob rule.

This man wants mob rule:

New Black Panther's head Malik Zulu Shabazz

Shabazz and others have threatened that there will be violence if the Grand Jury refuses to indict white police officer Darren Wilson for the shooting of Michael Brown, a black man.

If those threats succeed in crafting the decision of the Grand Jury the mobs will have won. And they will know they have won and they will use the same tactic over and over again. They will threaten violent tantrums if they don’t get their way.

If that is allowed to happen the mob will be in charge and the rule of law will be ancient history.

From the Associated Press: Law enforcement officers expect to receive at least a day’s notice before a grand jury announcement. That should provide time for them to execute security plans but may also allow demonstrators to prepare.

“The moment I learn that there is, in fact, a non-indictment, then there’s going to be an organized protest,” said Eric Vickers, a black St. Louis attorney and civil rights activist.”

“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.”

Impartial FEC Officer Campaigns For Democrats

She should be fired and jailed for her actions.

But, then, who will file charges against her, Eric Holder?

Ann Ravel is vice chairman of the Federal Election Commission

Ann Ravel is vice chairman of the Federal Election Commission

The top Democratic commissioner at the bipartisan Federal Election Commission is traveling to battleground states weeks before November’s midterm elections, engaging in what a former commissioner and an FEC observer call an “unprecedented” and “totally inappropriate” attempt to ignite public opposition to the Citizens United decision and promote Democratic positions on campaign finance.

Ann Ravel is vice chairman of the FEC, a six-member commission tasked with regulating campaign-finance laws in the United States. Composed of three Republicans and three Democrats, the commission’s chairmanship rotates each year, with Ravel’s term beginning in 2015.”

“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.

holder pensive

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.”

Someone’s Actually Saying It: “UK’s Disastrous Wind Power Policy the Result of Deluded “Green Blob” Politics”

Choose to ignore Owen Paterson’s warning at your Country’s peril.

Choose to ignore Owen Paterson’s warning at your Country’s peril.

As for wind farms, it seemed a bit strange that an innovation designed to save our beautiful world wreaked unique havoc on the best landscape. When we learnt that wind power needed vast amounts of conventional power back-up because of intermittency, we started to see it as the greatest physical folly in our island story.

Yet no mainstream political party engaged with this. You could tell that they were worried about the symptoms of their own policies – hence Ed Miliband’s call for an energy price freeze. But none wanted to discuss the causes. Owen Paterson, then the environment secretary, was the only minister who dared raise doubts. He annoyed what he calls the “green blob”. David Cameron duly sacked him this summer.

In the Global Warming Policy Foundation lecture on Wednesday, Mr Paterson said of wind farms that “this paltry supply of onshore wind, nowhere near enough to hit the 2050 targets, has devastated landscapes, blighted views, divided communities, killed eagles …” When this was quoted on the BBC News, he was saying no more than millions of ordinary people have been saying for years. Yet it was very striking to hear it in public, because no other elected person charged with these responsibilities had said anything like this before.”

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.

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.”

Here’s How You Defeat Laws That Allow People To Carry Guns:

It’s so simple. Crazy people don’t get permits so you class everyone as crazy!

From the New York Times:

Mental Health Issues Put 34,500 on New York’s No-Guns List

A newly created database of New Yorkers deemed too mentally unstable to carry firearms has grown to roughly 34,500 names, a previously undisclosed figure that has raised concerns among some mental health advocates that too many people have been categorized as dangerous.

The database, established in the aftermath of the mass shooting in 2012 at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., and maintained by the state Division of Criminal Justice Services, is the result of the Safe Act. It is an expansive package of gun control measures pushed through by the administration of Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo.”

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.

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.”

Karl Rove Is No Friend Of America

Karl Rove Dances With Donna Brazile - and she's leading

Karl Rove Dances With Donna Brazile – and she’s leading

Karl Rove was one of President George W. Bush’s chief advisers. Today he appears nearly every day on news programs advising Republicans on how to act and think. He is one of the leaders of the ‘Kill the Tea Party’ faction of the GOP.

What kind of record does he have, though? Traditionally, we have been taught that the way to evaluate the acts and the advice of someone is to take a close look at what he has done in the past. If we do this Rove comes up a failure.

Remember the song of the left during the Presidency of George W. Bush? “Bush lied, people died.” We heard it from everywhere. It started in Democrat circles and just… festered.

But what did he allegedly lie about? They said he told everyone that Saddam Hussein’s Iraq had WMD’s – Weapons of Mass Destruction – in order to justify his invasion of that country. They said that none were ever found which made him a liar.

Actually, WMD’swere found in Iraq. Large quantities of chemical weapons were discovered and hundreds of tons of refined uranium ore, called ‘Yellowcake’ were found and shipped out of the country.

Even though the facts were known, Rove advised the President to ignore the ‘Bush lied, people died’ antagonists rather than presenting the facts to refute the false allegations. After all, Bush didn’t lie.

By advising Bush to ignore these false critics Rove caused irreparable damage to his Presidency. As the left continued its attack, blaming Bush for lying and for being greedy for Iraqi oil, the accusations did more than damage President Bush. It also damaged his party. Americans were continually told that the GOP was corrupt and all you had to do was look at the President’s and the vice-President’s connections with the oil industry.

Even the far left website The Daily Beast has noted Rove’s perfidy. In and article titled ‘Insiders Blame Rove for Covering Up Iraq’s Real WMD‘ they say:

According to Wurmser, “in 2005-6, Karl Rove and his team blocked public disclosure of these (findings) and said ‘Let these sleeping dogs lie; we have lost that fight so better not to remind anyone of it.’”

Rove declined to comment for this story.”

Now Rove is helping to lead the Republican leaders toward rejecting ordinary American’s concerns and toward Progressive ideals. His ability to raise large sums of money via his PAC certainly has a lot to do with this.

Looking at his history one wonders if he is, perhaps, a Democrat sleeper agent.

Why Do You Suppose The Secret Service Wanted The Nashville Police To Lie For Them?

It’s interesting that the Nashville cops said, “Pound sand.” It is also apparent that the Secret Service has, like many other federal Bureaucracies, gotten out of control.

Following the resignation of Secret Service Director Julia Pierson, Nashville Police Chief Steve Anderson sent a letter to the House Oversight Committee stating that Secret Service agents has asked Nashville police officers to falsify an illegal search warrant against an unnamed critic of Barack Obama, who allegedly posted “threatening” comments about the criminal-in-chief in January 2013.

In the Nashville case, a Secret Service agent made a frantic call for backup to Nashville police after he and another agent went to the home of a Nashville man, investigating threatening comments on Facebook about the President. The man who posted them had refused to let the agents into his house.

“He shoved the door in our face and went around the corner. Looks like, we’re not sure if he … possibly he had a gun in his hands,” the agent told a 911 operator.

In a letter that he first sent to Secret Service headquarters, the Nashville police chief recounted what happened.
“The resident refused to come outside and shouted back, ‘Show me your warrant,'” Anderson wrote.

So “one of the agents then asked a [police] sergeant to ‘wave a piece of paper’ in an apparent effort to dupe the resident into thinking that they indeed had a warrant.”

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.

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.

(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.”
