Doctor with Ebola in NY passed CDC enhanced screening

Everybody can relax. We have top men working on this. Top. Men.



Well, that didn’t work. Maybe they should roll out the super-duper-enhanced screening process.

Remember how Obama told you you’d save $2500 per year on health insurance?

Yeah, that isn’t going to happen. You might, however, spend $2500 more.

The results are in. Obamacare has caused your health care costs to necessarily skyrocket. Well, unless you are one of the new welfare recipients receiving a coerced subsidy from your neighbors.

The bottom line? In 2014, premiums in the non-group market grew by 24.4% compared to what they would have been without Obamacare. Of equal importance, this careful state-by-state assessment showed that premiums rose in all but 6 states (including Washington DC).

PremiumIncreasesKowalski

Well, at least more people are insured, right? Wrong. In 2008, before Obama’s election, 14.4% of the US population had no health coverage.
As of April 2014, 15.6% of the US population has no health coverage.

Hey Ebola — If you can make it there, you’ll make it anywhere…

eboladoc

This is decidedly not good.

A doctor who treated Ebola patients in West Africa has been rushed to a New York City hospital with symptoms of the virus.

Dr Craig Spencer, 33, who returned to the U.S. ten days ago from Guinea, was admitted to Bellevue Hospital on Thursday.

The doctor was taken to the hospital from his home in Harlem after developing an 103F fever and nausea.

I wonder how many people he has come in contact with int he past 10 days.  Any guesses?  In NYC — maybe only a couple dozen.

The real ‘war on women’ is from the left

You know what the feminist left likes to “sit back and enjoy”? A young woman crying and reporting a bodily assault that resulted in physical injury.

Watch this CNN anchor yuck it up.

Had that been the daughter of a Democrat, you can bet your ass the reaction would have been RADICALLY different.

Accidentally brush up against a liberal woman on a bus? “That’s violent, sexual assault!”

Physically attack and injure Bristol Palin? “Sit back and enjoy.”

Once again, the hypocrisy of the left knows no bounds.

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.”

Football Coach Fired For Letting Players Eat Watermelon

These kids bought the melons themselves and saved them for rewards if they won. One busybody, politically correct, parent connected in his mind the watermelons and stereotypes of black people. So he, or she, officially objected and got a popular, successful coach fired. That is pure meanness. It’s insensitive to both the coach and the team members.

How can idiots like this be dealt with? I suggest laughter.

Watermelons-DT

A winning high-school football coach was fired after the team’s tradition of eating watermelon after games was deemed “inappropriate” and “racist.”

Bud Walpole had been coaching Academic Magnet Raptors football team, and was in the middle of a very successful season, according to CBS Charlotte.

A current Raptors player said the tradition began when players bought watermelons from a man who had been selling them on their route to the game. If they won the game, the team decided, they would eat the watermelon. After they did win, they smashed the watermelon on the ground and then ate it. (The team had to smash their victory fruit because they, understandably, did not have a knife on the sidelines.)”

The real question that comes from the article is, “Was he fired or not?” The last two paragraphs leave one wondering:

This parent’s complaint led to a Charleston County School District investigation into the watermelon-eating and Walpole’s eventual firing.

Walpole will still be allowed to teach at the school. Thousands have signed an online petition demanding that he be reinstated as coach.”

Great Idea! Darts Matches For The Blind In Britain

It sounds like great fun.

Blind darts player Richard Pryor with pub landlord Joe Fryer at The Dolphin Inn in Grampound.

Blind darts player Richard Pryor with pub landlord Joe Fryer at The Dolphin Inn in Grampound.

CORNWALL’S first blind darts team is preparing for its inaugural game at a Grampound pub – for charity.

The four wholly visually impaired teammates will make their first appearance at the village’s Dolphin Inn on Thursday.

Richard Pryor, who lost his sight 40 years ago, said the idea was mooted after a few pints at the pub, where the group of friends, called the Optimists, meet monthly.

Mr Pryor, 68, said: “While we were down the pub the other day, Joe, the landlord, mentioned that Rotary had organised for pubs to take part in the a Fast Darts competition.

“He asked if we wanted to put in a blind darts team. After three pints I am up for anything and we said yes.”

Here’s how they do it:

Because Petting Dogs Is Un-Islamic

Sadly, I’m not making that up…

A Malaysian social activist has received death threats and torrents of online abuse for organizing a dog-familiarization event that religious conservatives claim insults Islam.

More than 1,000 people attended the “I Want to Touch a Dog” event in the affluent Bandar Utama neighborhood on the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur on Sunday to learn about Islam’s views on canines and become familiar with the animals, which are a source of fear for many Malaysians.

But the event’s planner, Syed Azmi Alhabshi, has now been forced into hiding after hard-liners insisted he “should be stoned to death.”

While owning or touching a dog is not forbidden, they are viewed as unclean. If the slobber gets on you, you’re supposed to wash the area. The death-cult, however, is insisting that he be stoned-to-death (not in a good way), for daring to introduce people to dogs. But hey, it’s just another version of faith, like Christianity, right?

This Is Hate Speech Against Christians In Florida

Illustration to be Handed Out at Public Schools: Human Bible Sexually Assaulting Woman

That’s what it is, all right. The source, CNS News, warns readers that the image below may be offensive to some. They’re right. It is offensive. But I think Revo readers are entirely capable of dealing with nonsense such as this.

I don’t think this pamphlet is illegal. The first Amendment protects it. What is offensive to me is that the school officials may allow it to be distributed to children.

(CNSNews.com) – The Freedom From Religion Foundation, an atheist group, is planning to hand out in several Florida public high schools a pamphlet that features an illustration on its cover depicting a humanized Bible sexually assaulting a young woman.

The pamphlet is entitled: “An X-Rated Book: Sex and Obscenity in the Bible.”

The front cover of the small purple booklet is illustrated with a cartoon Bible–which has arms, legs, face and drooling mouth–sexually assaulting a screaming woman as she tries to escape its grasp.”

Palestinian Murders American Baby, Obama Pacifies

jewishbaby

I know you’re all terribly shocked by this. A hajji uses a vehicle to run over a crowd in Israel, killing an American (baby, pictured above), and our President says that Israel should exercise restraint and the Secretary of State doesn’t even bother to put his name on the press release. Some Canadians get killed by hajjis and the President pledges our full support. Murdered Americans or Israelis – GOOD. Murdered Canadians or Muslims – BAD. Got it?

The Obama administration pledged its “full support” for Canada to “to hold those responsible” for Wednesday’s terrorist attack but told Israel “to maintain calm and avoid escalating tensions.”

The different reactions say in a nutshell everything you need to know how the United States is feeding what Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman called a “worldwide epidemic” of terrorism.

The Obama administration constantly maintains that if Israel simply would stop trying to survive as a Jewish state and hand over more than half of the country to the Palestinian Authority on an Islamic platter, there will no longer be a reason for Arab terrorists to exist.

When a terrorist attacks in Ottawa, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry says, “We will continue to work closely with our Canadian colleagues to ensure the safety of all our people, and together to counter violent extremism in North America and elsewhere around the world.”

When a terrorist attacks in Jerusalem, Kerry does not even bother to put his name on the press release. He dictates to Spokeswoman Jen Psaki to say, “We urge all sides to maintain calm and avoid escalating tensions in the wake of this incident.”

Contrast that with a previous American stance on terrorism:

Joni Ernst believes she has the right to defend herself and her family

download (10)

Iowa Republican Senate candidate Joni Ernst talked about her sidearm in 2012.

During an National Rifle Association event in Iowa in 2012, state Sen. Joni Ernst, now the Republican nominee for Senate in the state, said she carries a 9-millimeter gun around everywhere and believes in the right to use it even if it’s against the government if they disregard her rights.

“I have a beautiful little Smith & Wesson, 9 millimeter, and it goes with me virtually everywhere,” Ernst said during a speech at the NRA’s Iowa Firearms Coalition Second Amendment Rally in Searsboro, Iowa, as flagged by The Huffington Post on Thursday. “But I do believe in the right to carry, and I believe in the right to defend myself and my family — whether it’s from an intruder, or whether it’s from the government, should they decide that my rights are no longer important.”

She says she has the right to defend herself and her family from thugs or a government that attempts to take her rights. Pretty tame stuff, right? The moonbats at Talking Point Memo are apoplectic. Here are sample comments.

How can someone who doesn’t believe in the rule of law be a Senator in the country that encoded the idea that no one is above the law into its very DNA?

GOPer Ernst Promises to Shoot People If Gov’t Decides She Doesn’t Get to Do Whatever the Fuck She Wants

Frigid stepford bitch.

Does that make her guilty of making terroristic threats against the government?

I really don’t understand how an anti-government extremist is tied in a race for U.S. Senator. This absolutely mystifies me. Have we really gone this far down the shitter?

If she’s dumb enough to challenge the government with a little 9mm, then she’s WAAAY too dumb to serve in the Senate … even from Iowa.

Anybody point out that what she is advocating is High Treason?

she is advocating over-throwing the Government if she feels they are somehow wronging her…That would be advocating Treason.How do these people even get this far in Politics?

Obama’s got some hellfire missiles that’ll disabuse this fucking bitch of that notion.

Don’t worry, as soon as there is a Republican president, the left will all get back to talking about armed revolution again. The puppy-dog subservience to the state of these hypocrites only applies when they serve leftists.

If you can’t run with the Big Dawgs, you better stay on the porch….

As MadBrad noted in his post earlier today, October 23rd is a day to remember the Marines. It is also the day that the Revo’s BrunDawg leaves for Washington D.C. to participate in the 2014 Marine Corps Marathon this weekend.

BrunDawg has a son serving as an active duty Marine in the Marine Security Forces at King’s Bay.  BrunDawg is running and raising funds for the organization “MarineParents” , a non-profit support group for Marine’s and their families.

Help me wish BrunDawg courage, stamina and strength as he runs his first marathon, raising money for a great cause!

I will remain comfortably on the porch….

“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.”

Why does it look like a shellacking at the polls?

The New York Times explains Democrats are panicking. Obama’s popularity is on the rocks with white people; especially Southern white people. Why do these crackers not support the president?

The panicky Democratic flight away from President Obama — and from some of the party’s most important positions — is not a surprise. Mr. Obama remains highly unpopular among white voters, particularly in Southern states where candidates like Ms. Nunn, Ms. Grimes and several others are struggling to establish leads. But one of the reasons for his unpopularity is that nervous members of his own party have done a poor job of defending his policies over the nearly six years of his presidency, allowing a Republican narrative of failure to take hold.

You read that right. Obama is unpopular because members of his own party have done a poor job of defending his policies and, as a result, Republicans have been able to create a “narrative of failure”. Evidently if Obama hadn’t been betrayed by the Judas like members of his own party, white people would see his policies for the wonderful success they are.

The delusion runs deep, doesn’t it?

Hit Republican, vote Democrat

In Illinois, a vote for the Republican candidate registers a vote for the Democrat.

Republican state representative candidate Jim Moynihan went to vote Monday at the Schaumburg Public Library.

“I tried to cast a vote for myself and instead it cast the vote for my opponent,” Moynihan said. “You could imagine my surprise as the same thing happened with a number of races when I tried to vote for a Republican and the machine registered a vote for a Democrat.”

They are calling this a “calibration error”.

Cook County Board of Elections Deputy Communications Director Jim Scalzitti, told Illinois Watchdog, the machine was taken out of service and tested.

“This was a calibration error of the touch-screen on the machine,” Scalzitti said. “When Mr. Moynihan used the touch-screen, it improperly assigned his votes due to improper calibration.”

What do you want to bet that calibration errors in Illinois never, ever, under any circumstances, register a vote for a Democrat as a vote for a Republican?

Ferguson officer’s story checks out

The Washington Post reports that evidence supports the contention that police officer Darren Wilson and Michael Brown fought for control of the officer’s gun and Wilson fatally shot the unarmed teenager as a result of that struggle.

Because Wilson is white and Brown was black, the case has ignited intense debate over how police interact with African American men. But more than a half-dozen unnamed black witnesses have provided testimony to a St. Louis County grand jury that largely supports Wilson’s account of events of Aug. 9, according to several people familiar with the investigation who spoke with The Washington Post.

Some of the physical evidence — including blood spatter analysis, shell casings and ballistics tests — also supports Wilson’s account of the shooting, The Post’s sources said, which casts Brown as an aggressor who threatened the officer’s life. The sources spoke on the condition of anonymity because they are prohibited from publicly discussing the case.

The grand jury is expected to complete its deliberations next month over whether Wilson broke the law in confronting Brown, and the pending decision appears to be prompting the unofficial release of information about the case and what the jurors have been told.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch late Tuesday night published Brown’s official county autopsy report, an analysis of which also suggests that the 18-year-old may not have had his hands raised when he was fatally shot, as has been the contention of protesters who have demanded Wilson’s arrest.

Meanwhile…

The U.S. Department of Justice condemned the leaks Wednesday as “irresponsible and highly troubling” and said, “There seems to be an inappropriate effort to influence public opinion about this case.”

Yeah, whatever. The Grand Jury is still deliberating yet this information is being leaked. I suspect that Eric Holder’s Justice Department sees the writing on the wall and is attempting to defuse things by gradually releasing information. It won’t matter. There will still be riots if there isn’t an indictment.

Terror in Canada

Second Muslim attack in Canada this week.

Canadian authorities late Wednesday identified the shooter in a brazen attack on the Parliament complex in Ottawa that left a soldier dead as Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, 32, Fox News has confirmed.

The shooting, which left the nation’s capital on lockdown, came just two days after a terror attack in Quebec.

A government official told Fox that investigators believe Zehaf-Bibeau, who was killed at the scene, had changed his name from Joseph Michael Hall. U.S. agencies also have been advised he was believed to be a convert to Islam and was from Quebec.

Counter terrorism investigators are reviewing his social media traffic and profile, with a focus on any link to the attack on two soldiers in Quebec Monday.

The Toronto Globe and Mail said sources had told the paper Zehaf-Bibeau was recently designated a “high-risk traveler” by the Canadian government and his passport had been seized.

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.”
