What Congressmen Are Told About Ebola
By Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh
The Congressional Research Service has been driving the legislative debate since 1914, giving our Congressmen information on various topics. The latest report on October 3, 2014, entitled, “Ebola: Basics about the Disease,” by Sarah Lister, Specialist in Public Health and Epidemiology, provides the following information obtained from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).
Canadian PM calls possible terrorist attack a possible terrorist attack
By Arthur Weinreb
Although the incident was tragic, it was refreshing to see Prime Minister Harper use the “t” word when describing an incident that took place in Quebec. Had what happened occurred south of the border, it would have been called an unfortunate car accident or at best, an incident of road rage.
The Hand of God is always there
By Judi McLeod
Even amid the doom and gloom seeping out from the deliberate destruction of America by its own president; even in the despair that comes along with the increasing perversion of the current Pop Culture, the Hand of God is always at work.
The “Malaise” Has Returned
By Alan Caruba
The joke is that Jimmy Carter is happy that Barack Obama has replaced him as the worst President of the modern era. It is a supreme irony that Obama’s campaign theme was “Hope and Change” when Americans have lost a great deal of hope about their personal futures and the only change they want is to see Obama gone from office.
Even ‘Shock-a-holic’ presidents can’t stampede nations into mass hysteria
By Judi McLeod
That Americans aren’t caving in to widespread hysteria on the current Ebola outbreak scare is a major headache for propagandist president Barack Hussein Obama.
BHO must have been in a real flap when he took to the microphones for his weekly radio address on Saturday: “This is a serious disease,” he said, “but we can’t give in to hysteria or fear, because that only makes it harder to get people the accurate information they need.” (Los Angeles Times, Oct. 18, 2014)
Let’s all hope Obama’s new Ebola Czar, Ron Klain, stayed at a Holiday Inn last night.
By Robert Laurie
Last week, President Barack Obama made a largely symbolic move by appointing his new “Ebola Czar.” Since he had to look like he was doing something, he did. The man he chose is Ron Klain - someone who knows nothing about medicine or science.
By Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh
As the ISIS crisis is conveniently ignored right before the election, the main stream media is focusing on the next crisis, the Ebola spread and the schizophrenic response from the CDC. Meanwhile Congress is silent, waiting for guidance on what opinion they should form before they actually do the job they were elected to do, legislate to protect the best interests of the American people.
CNN Columnist: Americans don’t care about Ebola in Africa, because they’re racists
By Robert Laurie
Ah, CNN. At one time, Ted Turner’s news network was the only one of its kind. These days, it’s near the bottom of a rather large pack, and has become the most banal example of an entire genre. When your claim to fame is “doing slightly better than MSNBC” you know things are bad. Perhaps, like their closest rival, CNN’s years of painfully obvious bias have something to do with the decline.

As Democrat hopes sputter, desperation kicks in. Beware falling race cards
By Robert Laurie --American Politics
When the polls turn ugly, you can always count on the Democrats for one thing. They start screaming “racism.” They also do it when they’re in power and are trying to ram unpopular legislation down the American peoples’ throats - but they really kick it into high gear during elections. In fact, they’ve done it so much that it’s rapidly becoming the white noise (no pun intended) of American politics. Their battle cry of “racism” has come so often and so consistently that people are starting to tune it out.
MoveOn.org: If GOP takes the Senate they’ll pass laws using a shady tactic called ‘reconciliation’
By Robert Laurie --American Politics
Wake the kids, phone the neighbors, sound the alarms! The uber-lefties who run George Soros’ favorite political outfit have a dire warning for us all. Those evil Republicans have a devious, sneaky, and downright un-American new weapon in their arsenal and - if they win the Senate in November - they’ll use it to pass their unholy agenda. It’s called “reconciliation.”

Kennedy got it right
By Sarge --American Politics
John F. Kennedy said: “There are risks and costs to a program of action. But they are far less than the long-range risks and costs of comfortable inaction.”
Once in a while I get stuck. Many call it Writer’s Block. I call it a bunch of aggravating schmutz stuck in my head. It’s mental constipation. You know there’s something there, you just can’t get it out, hence the quote.
Obama has a history of walking on a political treadmill. He keeps walking but never understands he’s going nowhere. He goes through the motions of ambulation but has no idea he’s got no destination other than in his head and when he stops he’ll be the same sad excuse for a political with no real success to his credit.
“If Assad Stays, ISIS Stays”: The Coalition Airstrikes as Reflected in the Syrian Discourse on Socia
By INSS --World News
Social media discourse regarding the coalition forces’ operations in Syria criticizes and doubts the efficacy of the war on the Islamic State, while raising possible solutions for the ongoing conflict afflicting the country. Three possible solutions are discussed, as according to participants, by combining them the coalition may prevent strategic failure in its war on the Islamic State and possibly contribute to rehabilitating the war-riddled nation. One solution refers to eradicating the Islamic State, the second involves removing the Assad regime and the third discusses strengthening the local communities. This is the only incentive for Islamic State supporters to abandon the organization and the only way to prevent domestic funding and legitimacy.

New UK Gun Policy Should Be A Warning To American Gun Owners

BELLEVUE, WA – A new policy announced by the British Home Office recently to allow unannounced searches of the homes of registered British gun owners should raise alarms among Americans who are threatened with increasingly restrictive gun laws pushed by wealthy anti-gunners including billionaire Michael Bloomberg, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today.
Curbing Obama Power Grabs

You’ve got to admire the sheer audacity: Democratic Senator Mark Begich telling Alaska voters that he stood up to President Obama and fought for oil drilling and jobs in his state. Maybe he had a few chats.
Liberals attack First Amendment in Wisconsin, Illinois, Texas and Idaho
By Dan Calabrese --American Freedom
The Wall Street Journal has lately been performing a real public service by chronicling the efforts of Wisconsin lawmakers, prosecutors and some judges to basically obliterate the First Amendment as it pertains to political speech. No one has passed a law saying you can be arrested for what you say. The usurpation of liberty never works like that. Rather, a complicated web of bureaucracies and legal authorities have established regulations in the name of “fairness” or “good goverment” or “transparency” or what-have-you.
Obama the virtuoso manager
By Caroline Glick --American Politics
Since he assumed office nearly six years ago, US President Barack Obama has been dogged by allegations of managerial incompetence. Obama, his critics allege, had no managerial experience before he was elected. His lack of such experience, they claim, is reflected in what they see as his incompetent handling of the challenges of the presidency.

Shouldn’t be we fighting a war on terrorism not on fossil fuels?
By Marita Noon --Global Warming-Energy-Environment
“You are responsible for President Obama’s re-election,” I told 150 folks from the oil and gas industry—most of whom were conservative Republicans. I spoke to them on October 15 in San Angelo, TX. A reporter covering the event wrote that I “stunned the crowd by telling them they were largely responsible for getting the president re-elected, and asking them if they knew how they had helped.” He continued: “The room was very quiet for several moments as Noon waited to see if anyone would volunteer an answer.”

The Progressive Pajama Boy Era is Over
By Daniel Greenfield --American Politics
Obama’s approval ratings and MSNBC’s viewer ratings are in a close race to the bottom of Death Valley. It’s only a question of which set of obnoxious hipsters with a head full of bad policy ideas and no real life experience will be fired first; the Maddow crew or the White House staff.
The Time to Fight Back is NOW
By Tim Dunkin --American Politics
If you’re like me, you are astounded at the way our nation has taken a turn for the worse within just the past two weeks. At the flick of a few pens, radical, overreaching judges have overthrown the will of large majorities of the people in half our states and imposed the perversion of gay “marriage” onto these states. As a consequence, we have seen an acceleration in the radical Left’s efforts to punish people essentially for being Christians and for morally opposing the Gaystapo agenda. We’ve seen the Obama administration completely fail in its duty to protect the people of this nation from a deadly disease introduced from outside our borders.
November 4: the most important election in history
By James Simpson --American Politics
The GOP has surged in the polls leading up to the November elections as people come to the shocking realization that Obama is deliberately risking the American population’s health by encouraging unfettered access to America by Ebola-infected West Africans. And while we are preoccupied with this horror show, he is intent on legalizing tens of millions of aliens to obtain a permanent Democrat majority nationwide. Obama’s goal is to destroy the middle class and steal future elections with a tidal wave of amnestied illegal immigrants.

WSJ: ObamaCare ‘cost controls’ haven’t, don’t and won’t
By Dan Calabrese --American Healthcare
ObamaCare, officially known as the Affordable Care and Patient Protection Act, is a good example of how names politicians give to things often have little or nothing to do with the actual substance of the thing. You’d think from the name of the law - and from much of the Democrat rhetoric in support of the law - that it cuts costs and saves people money. Anyone who has seen what’s happened to health insurance premiums knows that’s not true. But if you still were holding out hope that ObamaCare would save money in some obscure corner of the world, please be advised: Even the government’s own controlled laboratories for cost-cutting under ObamaCare are not cutting costs:
Government to Ordained Ministers: Celebrate Same-Sex Wedding or Go to Jail
By Heritage Foundation --American Freedom
For years, those in favor of same-sex marriage have argued that all Americans should be free to live as they choose. And yet in countless cases, the government has coerced those who simply wish to be free to live in accordance with their belief that marriage is the union of a man and a woman.

Idaho city tells pastors: Celebrate gay weddings or face fines, jail time
By Dan Calabrese --American Politics
Bakers, photographers and florists are being forced to shut down their businesses unless they accede to demands that they join in the celebration of gay “marraiges,” but so far no one has faced jail time for putting commitment to the Word of God ahead of the demands of homosexuals and their cultural champions.
