Bowling With Ebola

15259695217_b4f1202afa_b

So – a doctor in NYC was diagnosed last night with Ebola.

Greta Van Susteren reviewed his itinerary at GretaWire:

He got back from West Africa last Friday and has been moving around the city and coming in contact with many since returning from West Africa. His temperature was taken at JFK when he returned per the Obama Administration new port entry rules. He passed. Now read on:

I realize it is difficult to protect the nation from ebola, but, at the very least, the American people should not be slicked into feeling safe from a procedure that is grossly inadequate.

If you watch ON THE RECORD at 7pm, you know I have more than once pointed out the obvious: the Obama Administration’s airport entry tests for people arriving from Africa is both ridiculous as inadequate and falsely lulls American people into feeling safe, that something is being done to protect them. At 5 airports, passengers’ temperatures are taken as an ebola test. Here is the obvious problem with this – assume this:

Day#1 – passenger gets ebola in West Africa

Day #5 (?) – gets on a plane from West Africa to USA and has NO SYMPTOMS. Passenger arrives at one of the 5 airports and gets temperature taken and TEMPERATURE IS NORMAL. Passenger continues journey into the United States.

Day 18? – passenger develops fever (symptom of ebola.) Passenger obviously within the 21 day incubation period. PASSENGER, NOW IN USA, HAS EBOLA and is CONTAGIOUS.

The day before he went to the hospital,  Dr. Craig Spencer and his live-in girlfriend Morgan Dixon went out on the town – which included a subway ride to the BOWLING ALLY.

Via Charles C. Johnson of Got News, the hipster couple “exposed New Yorkers in two different boroughs to ebola during their night out on the town.”

They are both registered Democrats with a history of working in public health.

Both Spencer and Dixon are professional do gooders according to their LinkedIn and professional websites. Spencer boasts a degree from Columbia’s University Mailman School of Public Health, according to his since deleted LinkedIn page.

So why did health care professionals decide to go bowling just days after Spencer returned from Ebola-infected Guinea?

Doctors Without Borders had already announced nine deaths from Ebola and sixteen infections. Why didn’t Spencer take his sickness seriously?

I think the answer lies in the first five words of the above paragraph.

Drudge once again has linked to the disinformation-monger Alex Jones, who is claiming that Ebola patients are being “disappeared.”

But anyone who has been closely monitoring the news, has to be suspicious that the least transparent administration in our nation’s history is trying to cover up inconvenient Ebola news – not so much to avoid panic – but to protect Democrats in the midterm elections.

Paul Rahe of Ricochet also wonders if there are other cases out there that are being swept under the carpet.

My first instinct is to suspect such claims. But, over the last few years, we have been misled time and again, and I could easily imagine the Obama Administration, in a panic, directing the CDC to hide as much as possible.

Like everything else about this administration, I suppose, the truth will eventually come out — after it is politically irrelevant.

Meanwhile, unlike last week’s Ebola hearing, Republicans on the Oversight and reform Committee came to their hearing, this morning, armed with the facts to assail HHS for its inadequate preparation for and response to the disease.

Sheriff Babeu: Administration Knowingly Lied About Release of Criminal Detainees – “It Went All The Way up to the WH”

The MSM is finally waking up to a story that should have caused a firestorm when it hit the news over 18 months ago.

Records have come to light that prove the Obama administration was lying when it repeatedly told the public and Congress that the thousands of illegal immigrants who were released from jail had minor criminal records and were no threat to the public.

Starting in February of 2013 – if the MSM was interested – there were ICE and Border Patrol whistleblowers who were saying that serious criminals were being released.

While the controversy was raging, Sheriff Babeu of Pinal County, AZ  told Jed Babbin of The American Spectator that he was receiving frantic calls from ICE and Border Patrol agents. Babeu said, “Good people who work for ICE, work for Border Patrol, they call me all the time.…They said, ‘Sheriff, help us. We’re releasing all these criminals. This order just came down from Washington and now they’re all out in the streets.”

Sheriff Babeu told Jeanine Pirro in terrifying detail  how bad some of the guys who were released were:

 Pinal County Sheriff, Paul Babeu noted that among those released were criminals who had been “convicted not just charged – convicted for weapons violations, drug smuggling, (these are cartel members, these are narcotic traffickers!), drug dealers, these are people who have been in fights,  and aggravated assaults against police officers…. How in the world can you say these are low risk, non criminal detainees?!  These are the worst of the worst. These are people who have been convicted of child molestation! We have people who have been released, I’ve been told by ICE agents, who have been  charged with man-slaughter.”

Where are the whistleblowers?   Babeu told Jeanine Pirro that “several memos had been sent out to ICE agents about the prisoner releases, and anyone who talked about it “outside our agency shall be disciplined up to and including termination, creating an atmosphere of fear and intimidation.”  He said, “these federal agents, who swore an oath to protect our country, are being intimidated from doing the right thing.”

But  Jay Carney and ICE Chief  John Morton insisted the released detainees were “low risk” and “non-criminal”  – and the MSM apparently took their word for it, because that outrageous scandal – like so many of the Regime’s other outrageous scandals – simply disappeared from the news.

So now, all these months later, the truth comes out.

The records, obtained by USA TODAY, show immigration officials released some undocumented immigrants who had faced far more serious criminal charges, including people charged with kidnapping, sexual assault, drug trafficking and homicide.

You don’t say! You mean members of the Obama administration were *GASP* not being open and honest with the American people – on an issue that directly effects their safety and security?! 

The release sparked a furor in Congress. Republican lawmakers accused the Obama administration of setting dangerous criminals free. In response, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said it had released “low-risk offenders who do not have serious criminal records,” a claim the administration repeated to the public and to members of Congress.

The new records, including spreadsheets and hundreds of pages of e-mails, offer the most detailed information yet about the people ICE freed as it prepared for steep, across-the-government spending cuts in February 2013. They show that although two-thirds of the people who were freed had no criminal records, several had been arrested or convicted on charges more severe than the administration had disclosed.

ICE spokeswoman Gillian Christensen acknowledged the discrepancy. She said “discretionary releases made by ICE were of low-level offenders. However, the releases involving individuals with more significant criminal histories were, by and large, dictated by special circumstances outside of the agency’s control.”

In hearings last year, Republican lawmakers pressed then-ICE Director John Morton for specifics on the criminal records of the people the agency had freed. At one, Rep. J. Randy Forbes, R-Va., asked Morton directly, “No one on that list has been charged or convicted with murder, rape or sexual abuse of a minor, were they?”

Morton answered, “They were not.”

He told lawmakers that, to his knowledge, none had faced child pornography charges.

White House spokesman Jay Carney similarly described them as “low-risk, non-criminal detainees.”

Of course, Jay Carney, Janet Napolitano and John Morton are all no longer with the Obama administration having moved on to find other ways to mislead the public.

Neil Cavuto had Sheriff Babeu on his Fox show to talk about the “new” revelations.

He said they had released hundreds criminals right into his county in Arizona and  “five courageous whistleblowers within ICE”  had contacted him about what was going on. When he went to the media, (only conservative media ran with it) he was accused of lying.

“It went all the way up to the White House and they knowingly lied,” Babeu charged. “It wasn’t me – it was them and there was 2,228  released in California, Arizona, Texas and Georgia. The most troubling part of this story, now that it’s been exposed is that this administration knowing lied, releasing… two in my county that were charged with manslaughter, people who were charged, convicted of  child molestation, aggravated assault against police officers, armed robbery…”

He added, “the worst part is we still don’t know their names and where they were released to this very moment…”

Anticipating Obama’s promised executive action on amnesty, Babeu said he’s calling on Congress to “please take action to stop the president from taking action with unilateral powers he doesn’t have.”

Cavuto wondered why it would be the Obama administration’s interest to release these criminals into the populous.

Babeu reminded him that it started during the Sequestration when the Regime was trying to pressure Congress by “turning up the volume of the pain.”

In March of 2013, an irate Rep. Trey Gowdy pressed then ICE Director Morton on the release of criminal detainees.

“It does look like the decision to release the detainees was a political determination and not a monetary determination,” Gowdy said. “It appears to me that the release of the detainees was part of a sequester campaign that included the fictional firing of teachers, the closing of the White House for student tours, the displacement of meat inspectors and now we are going to release aggravated felons—some aggravated felons onto the street.”

Why Does CNN host Carol Costello Still Have A Job?

She is a disgrace to CNN and if Jeff Zucker had any common sense or decency, she would have been fired, yesterday.

In case you haven’t been following this, something pretty extraordinary happened on CNN, this week.

Via The Right Scoop:

CNN host Carol Costello can barely contain her excitement over hearing the new audio of the ‘brawl’ in Alaska that involved Bristol Palin a few weeks back.

She started the segment by claiming it was possibly the best audio CNN had ever gotten:

“Okay I’m just going to come right out and say it. This is quite possibly the best minute and a half of audio we’ve ever come across.”

Costello then proceeded to describe the “massive brawl” and before playing the audio she told her viewers “so sit back and enjoy.”

What you are asked to “sit back and enjoy” is the sound of a tearful and near hysterical Bristol Palin describing to the police the physical assault she had just experienced.

You really have to see this to appreciate how massive the disconnect is between far leftists like Costello and normal human beings. There is nothing remotely funny about Palin’s distress in the audio.

It’s not too difficult for those of us who track and document left-wing thuggery, to see what was going on there.

Here, in Bristol Palin’s own words, is what happened.

Our friend got knocked out from a cheap shot from behind.  (His injury resulted in ten stitches, so it was really low.)

Why would anyone do this?  Well, here’s a hint.  The guy was on social media during this incident, tweeting, “about to get famous.”

When Willow saw all this happening she looked at the guy’s mom and said “get ahold of your son.”

But apparently the apple didn’t fall too far from the tree, because his mom pushed Willow.  A grown woman pushed my little sister.

By this point, I’d already gotten into the car.  But when Willow ran to me crying, telling me that some lady had pushed her down, I got out of the car to go talk to her.  Any big sister would do this.

Next to God, family is the most important thing to me.

***

But the evening that began so well took a turn for the worse when this guy decided he wanted to “get famous.”

After I got out of the car, I didn’t get far. I never even got to talk to his mom, because a guy in his late thirties or early forties got in my face.  He was towering over me – probably at 6 foot something and over 200 pounds. He puffed his chest out and started yelling.

“You c-nt!” he looked right in my eyes and said.  “Get the f-ck out of here, you slut!”

I was alarmed that things had gotten so bad so fast.  But it got even worse when this guy started pushing me.  He had his hands on me, pushing me down.  That’s when I swung and hit his face.

Some would say I should’ve never retaliated in defense against him, but certainly he should never have pushed a girl.   It didn’t phase him.  He pushed me down to the ground and kept me there.

It was scary and awful.  He held me down until someone got me out of the situation. 

That’s it – that’s the story.

What makes this story all the more remarkable is the gross double standard and mind boggling hypocrisy at play. Costello has gone on the record herself to talk about an assault she once suffered at the hands of an abusive boyfriend.

Via Noah Rothman at HotAir:

National Review’s Charles C. W. Cooke noted that Sullivan has heaped far less scorn on the sitting vice president whose son was recently revealed to have engaged in illegal activities which resulted in his discharge from the Navy – activities for which “he is unlikely to face so much as an interview with the police.” How’s that for inequality?

But Cooke focuses primarily on an even stronger point, one which was first observed by The Daily Caller’s Matt Lewis: Where are the feminists rending garments over the callous way in which a physical assault on a woman by a man is being portrayed in the press?

“Anyone who is concerned about a ‘war on women’ — but not disturbed by this report — is clearly biased,” Lewis wrote.

Enter CNN anchor Carol Costello.

“I never wanted to become the poster child for anything, let alone domestic violence. But my blood is boiling, so when I say shut up, I’m venting at all those people out there who insist on blaming the victim,” Costello wrote with righteous fury directed at the National Football League (and the morning show Fox & Friends) over what she considered an insufficient level of concern for an incident involving Ray Rice striking his fiancé.

Costello goes on to reveal that she, too, was the victim of what sounds like a horrible assault by her college boyfriend. It was a brave thing for her to admit, and it made her commentary on the lax treatment Rice received from the NFL that much more powerful. But this admission also branded her take on the Palin assault as one which is inexplicably hypocritical.

Costello offered an apology without an explanation in a statement to Politico:

CNN’s Carol Costello apologized on Thursday for joking about a police recording of Bristol Palin.

“Over the past few days I have been roundly criticized for joking about a brawl involving the Palin family. In retrospect, I deserve such criticism and would like to apologize,” Costello said in a statement to POLITICO.

No ma’am. You deserve more than just criticism. You have disqualified yourself from holding a job at a still somewhat respected (debatable, I know) news organization. Folks on Twitter are demanding that she apologize on the air, which she’ll no doubt do, (if she hasn’t already) but after this disgraceful episode, there should be only one place left in the TV news business for her:

UPDATE: 

Mark Levin weighs in.

UPDATE II:

 John Nolte at Breitbart contacted CNN to see if she plans to do an on air apology. The answer was no. The half-hearted statement to Politico was it.

The Struggle Continues: The Rev. Al Botches Ottawa (Video)

could have waited until this was part of vol. 4  of the Washington Free Beacon’s Rev. Al vs. the Teleprompter series to show this (believe me – this gaffe will make the cut) but it’s pretty hilarious as a stand-alone and I’m not good at waiting – so…

MSNBC decided to have the Rev cover news about yesterday’s terrorist shooting in Ottawa, Canada on his show, last night. The clueless Reverend Al asked his guest, reporting from Ottawa, “what’s the latest from Iowa?” 

“Uh – Ottawa….” she corrected, before giving her report.

This week’s nominees were all slime-worthy,but in the end the overwhelming winner was….

WeaselWeek2

U.S. Secretary Of State John Kerry!!

 Simply Jews : John Kerry, to be liked more by the members of the Dictators’ Club, is ready to go the whole nine yards.

He said the unresolved Israel-Palestinian conflict was fueling recruitment for the Islamic State jihadist group.

“There wasn’t a leader I met with in the region who didn’t raise with me spontaneously the need to try to get peace between Israel and the Palestinians, because it was a cause of recruitment and of street anger and agitation,” Kerry said.

Why should ISIS head-cutters invest in their propaganda, when the leader of the free world, via his proxy, provides them with ready-to-use soundbites ?

Another low in the White House Middle East “peace effort”...

The Noisy Room : My nomination this week goes to John Kerry, more affectionately (not) referred to as Lurch, for claiming that extremism has nothing to do with Islam:

Secretary of State John Kerry on Thursday night rejected any link between Islam and extremism practiced by the likes of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS/ISIL/Daesh), pointing instead to factors such as poverty among youthful Mideast populations, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict – and climate change.

Addressing a reception at the State Department in honor of the recent Islamic holiday of Eid al-Adha, Kerry told an audience of Muslim community representatives, diplomats and others that the world was facing “a very complex time, and there are many currents that are loose out there that have brought us to this moment.”;

“The extremism that we see, the radical exploitation of religion which is translated into violence, has no basis in any of the real religions,” he said. “There’s nothing Islamic about what ISIL/Daesh stands for, or is doing to people.”

 So, religion has nothing to do with religion in Islam. Except it does… it has everything to do with the Qu’ran and Allah’s most devoted worshipers. Instead Kerry blames Israel yet again, the lack of socialist collectivism in the world and non-existent climate change. Forked tongue much?

 JoshuaPundit : John Kerry, for his revival of a kinky  variation of Meershimer and Walt’s ‘The Israel Lobby’  fantasy and saying that Islamic State’s success in recruiting is due to Israel’s failure to commit national suicide and bow to all Hamas/Fatah’s demands:

.As I went around and met with people in the course of our discussions about the ISIL coalition, the truth is we – there wasn’t a leader I met with in the region who didn’t raise with me spontaneously the need to try to get peace between Israel and the Palestinians because it was a cause of recruitment and of street anger and agitation that they felt – and I see a lot of heads nodding – they had to respond to. And people need to understand the connection of that. And it has something to do with humiliation and denial and absence of dignity, and Eid celebrates the opposite of all of that.

Said of course,  at a reception honoring  the Muslim holiday of Eid-al-Adha, to a predominantly Muslim audience, most of  whom would undoubtedly giggle and high five one another if every Jew in Israel were to die tomorrow.

For that matter, if Kerry is telling the truth, the majority of the leaders Kerry claims he talked to don’t even recognize Israel’s existence as a state! Even CNN doesn’t do polls that biased. And does he really think that Islamic State, Hamas and Hezbollah  would disarm, disappear and give up their quest for the Caliphate if Israel suddenly disappeared from the equation?

Also, for his unique performance appeasing the Iranians and knuckling under to their continued  demands and transparent stalling to keep the ball rolling on their illegal nuclear weapons program.

Yes,our Secretary of State is quite the weasel, isn’t he?

I still remember Weekend Monkey’s interview with him a few years back.He really got to the essence of the man..very revealing.

Accepting the award for the Secretary was deputy State department spokesmouth Marie Harf. I asked her whether the Secretary was pleased with his victory tonight and she said she couldn’t comment on that but would release a statement later..she wasn’t exactly sure when.

Well, there it is! 

Check back next Tuesday to see who next week’s nominees for Weasel of the Week are!

Make sure to tune in every Monday for the Watcher’s Forum, and  remember, every Wednesday, the Council has its weekly contest with the members nominating two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council. The votes are cast by the Council, and the results are posted on Friday morning.

It’s a weekly magazine of some of the best stuff written in the blogosphere, and you won’t want to miss it...or any of the other fantabulous Watcher’s Council content.

And don’t forget to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter..’cause we’re cool like that, y’know?

Facing Genocide, Yazidis Cry Out For Help

Across the Kurdish region of northern Iraq, refugee camps, building sites and a sprinkling of Yazidi villages hold tens of thousands of Yazidi refugees who fled the advance of Isil in scenes of biblical exodus across Mount Sinjar in August.

But tens of thousands more were trapped behind the Isil lines.

Researchers adding together accounts of massacres in Yazidi villages as the jihadists attacked have counted a series of killings of more than 100 men each, with the total gunned down now thought to be up to 5,000.

An estimated 5-7,000 women are also being held in makeshift detention centres, where they are being taken away and either sold into servitude or handed to jihadists as concubines. The town of Tal Afar alone is thought to hold around 3,500 women and children in five detention centres.

Full story.

With the United States no longer engaged, ISIS  retook two towns on Sinjar Mountain Monday, “indicating that the Sunni militant group is advancing on territory that the U.S. had said that it had secured during its airstrikes on the region back in August.”

Via the International Business Times:

It was not immediately clear how many Yazidis were affected by the group’s takeover Monday. Some news reports said that as many as 700 families could have been displaced by the ISIS siege. Tens of thousands of Yazidis were forced to flee from the mountain this summer. Since then, many of those who fled have returned home, thinking that the U.S. had pushed back the militant group from the area.

Now ISIS is back in the area, looking to take back the towns it held before the U.S. airstrikes. One of the most vulnerable populations among the Yazidis are women. Earlier this month, ISIS said it had enslaved women and children in several villages on Mount Sinjar. In an article in its online magazine, ISIS claimed that the group gave women to soldiers who fought on the mountain.

Via the Washington Post, a desperate plea for help:

“We called asking for help with airstrikes, but nothing,” said Mohammad Khalil, a Yazidi and former member of parliament who has been fighting alongside the 2,000-strong volunteer force in the area since late August. “Now we are all trapped — the fighters are trapped, the civilians are trapped.”

Yazidis are facing “attempted Genocide” UN official says:

Strong evidence suggests that Iraq’s ethnic and religious minority, the Yazidis, face what could amount to “attempted genocide,” a top U.N. rights official said on Wednesday.

“The evidence strongly indicates attempt to commit genocide,” Assistant Secretary-General for Human Rights Ivan Simonovic said after meeting with more than 30 displaced Yazidis across Iraq in a week-long visit.

Via The Daily Mail, a Yazidi woman taken prisoner tells a tale of terror, desolation, and despair.

A young Yazidi woman forced into sex slavery by the Islamic State begged the West to bomb the brothel where she was being held after militants raped her 30 times in just a few hours, it is claimed.

The unidentified woman is understood to have been kept as a prisoner of the jihadists somewhere in western Iraq having been captured by ISIS during the Sinjar massacre in early August.

A group raising awareness of ISIS’ persecution of women in the vast swathes of the Middle East under its control said the woman had contacted Kurdish peshmerga fighters by telephone to plead for the brothel to be bombed to put the women held as sex slaves out of their misery.

She allegedly told the fighters she had been raped so frequently that she could no longer use the toilet, adding that the ordeal has been so harrowing that she plans to commit suicide even if freed.

The UK Telegraph reports that “at first, reports of the massacres and the mass sexual enslavement of women were so extreme and apparently incredible that they went little reported compared to the very visible plight of those who escaped to the mountain.”

However, United Nations researchers have managed to verify many of the accounts beyond reasonable doubt: virtually every refugee family has male relatives who have been killed and women who have been kidnapped.

***

Matthew Barber, a scholar of Yazidi history at the University of Chicago who was in Kurdistan as the assaults happened, said it was thought 3-5,000 men had been killed.

He said he had also compiled a list of 4,800 names of women and children being held captive.

“In every place where Yazidi women or families are held, jihadists come and randomly select women that they take away,” he added. “A final total above 7,000 is perfectly feasible.”

“My 13-year-old sister was separated from my family,” said one man, Ahmed Naif Qasem, who is staying in the town of Ba’adre. He was away serving with the Kurdish armed forces, the Peshmerga, when the Yazidis swept through in the first week in August.

His parents, wife and extended family were seized from their home in Snuny, near Sinjar, and taken over the Syrian border to be converted to Islam at gunpoint.

When the family returned, his sister and his wife had been taken away.

His wife was later allowed to rejoin her family after having been “treated badly”, he said, but no one had seen his sister since.

What has happened to the women has been relayed in a series of phone calls from families, and in some rare cases by women and girls who had managed to escape.

Mr Khalaf said his 13-year-old niece had been among the members of his family seized, but she had escaped seven weeks after being “taken away”. She had so far been too distressed to describe what had happened to her, he said.

“She just cries when she tries to speak,” he said. Others escapees have told of being “married” to older jihadi leaders, in some cases raped, and made to watch acts of barbarity.

Pray for the Yazadis, Kurds, and Christians in the Middle East.  And pray for peace, but if there can be no peace, pray for lots of well aimed airstrikes hitting their ISIS targets.

For some reason, I can’t get this hymn “Cry of the Poor” out of my head.

“Awesome!: CO Lib Activists Funded By Dem Super PAC Encourage Voter Fraud

 

No surprises here. Any Democrat who tells you actual voter fraud is rare – is either a lo-info drone, or lying to your face. Democrats and voter fraud go together like peaches and cream and have since the days of Tammany Hall.

John Fund reported on the latest Project Veritas investigation at National Review:

Many liberals are adamant there is no threat of voter fraud that justifies efforts to improve the integrity of elections. “There is no real concrete evidence of voter fraud,” tweeted Donna Brazile, former acting chair of the Democratic National Committee, this week. “It’s a big ass lie.”

James O’Keefe, the guerilla filmmaker who brought down the ACORN voter-registration fraudsters in 2010 and forced the resignation of NPR executives, politely disagrees. Today, he is releasing some new undercover footage that raises disturbing questions about ballot integrity in Colorado, the site of fiercely contested races for the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House, and the governorship. When he raised the issue of filling out some of the unused ballots that are mailed to every household in the state this month, he was told by Meredith Hicks, the director of Work for Progress, a liberal group funded by Democratic Super PACS.: “That is not even like lying or something, if someone throws out a ballot, like if you want to fill it out you should do it.” She then brazenly offered O’Keefe, disguised as a middle-aged college instructor, a job with her group.

 

Lefties, are of course wailing and gnashing their teeth over this latest O’Keefe sting. Mother Jones lowlife David Corn is trying to discredit the results on Twitter, but does have  a point about one thing.

Apparently, O’Keefe tried the same shtick with some Dem staffers but was rebuffed. Mother Jones had a write-up about that a couple of days ago in preparation for the release of the sting video. One of the staffers even took a picture of O’Keefe in his fake mustache allowing people to have a sneak peek.

It’s not surprising that Democrat staffers are not so careless that they would allow themselves to get caught on video supporting voter fraud. They let their community organizers handle that part of the criminal enterprise. It is a little surprising and disappointing that that fact wasn’t mentioned anywhere in the O’Keefe’s video.

This excuse doesn’t really cut it:

 

The video is not yet up on the Project Veritas website. Hopefully the write-up there will have the whole story.
