Another WFB Al Sharpton Supercut

Those miscreants at the Washington Free Beacon really need to stop picking on Al Sharpton. It’s mean-spirited and it’s wrong. Ed Schultz is equally ridiculous and embarrassing – but you don’t see the wise guys WFB attacking Shultz every other day. I can think of only one reason for this – RAAAAAcism.

They should be ashamed of themselves. I know I’m ashamed of myself for ROTFL.

17 times Al Sharpton repeated what he just heard in the form of a question | SUPERcuts! #111:

GOP Candidate Jacob Turk (Mo-Dist 5) Advocates “Common Sense” Ebola Travel Restrictions

Monday night at a candidates forum in Lee’s Summit, Missouri, Republican candidate for US Congress, Republican candidate for US Congress Jacob Turk (MO-dist. 5) advocated using “common sense” to deal with the Ebola outbreak.

“When people come back from these Ebola-infected countries, then we need to look at a quarantine,” Turk declared. “particularly cutting off non-nationals, non-citizens from those areas to travel to America would be a first step in the right direction.” He continued to say we shouldn’t be “issuing new visas right now until this virus is under control.”

A former Marine, himself, Turk came out strongly against using the US Marines to fight the disease overseas.

“I don’t think these Marines signed up to become doctors and nurses so they shouldn’t be sent over there,” he said. “They’re military men and women – they’re not physicians.”

He concluded by saying, “let’s make sure that it doesn’t cross our borders any more than it has, and take a common sense approach to those who would come with it to our country.”

 

It’s not known what Turk’s opponent, Rep. Emanuel Cleaver thinks about a travel ban – he was a no-show at the candidates forum, leaving his constituents in Lee’s Summit in the dark about his views on Ebola – and a whole host of other issues.

According to the Washington Post, two-thirds of those polled support travel restrictions on people entering the United States from the Ebola-stricken countries.

 

Bill O’Reilly Calls On CDC Director To Resign (Video)

On The O’Reilly Factor, last night, Bill O’Reilly called on CDC Director Tom Frieden to resign for perpetuating a “dumb and dangerous ruse” on the likelihood that Ebola could spread in the United States.

I fully agree with O’Reilly’s that CDC Director Tom Frieden is a propagandist who is spinning the situation and not being forthcoming. But savvy pundits should know that Friedman is only doing the White House’s bidding on Ebola. A new CDC Director would only be another fellow traveler who would be willing to tow the same line of BS.

Valley Central.com: Immigrants from Ebola outbreak nations caught along the border:

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued a level three warning for US citizens to avoid traveling to West African countries experiencing an outbreak of Ebola.

Immigrants from West African countries have entered the US illegally, according to Chris Cabrera with the National Border Patrol Council.

“Not too long ago we did catch some people, I believe, from Liberia,” he said.

During the 2013 fiscal year, national statistics from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security website show Border Patrol agents apprehended 112 immigrants from Guinea, 231 from Liberia and 145 immigrants from Sierra Leone, which are the three countries currently experiencing the most cases of Ebola.

“Our main concern like it’s always been is the health and safety of our agents,” Cabrera said.

He worries agents are not properly protected in the event they come across an immigrant with the Ebola virus.

“Our agents are trained, however, they are not medical professionals,” he said.

Fox 4 News KC: University of Kansas Hospital reports patient at risk for Ebola:

KANSAS CITY, Kan. — A man in his 40s, who complained of a high fever and other serious Ebola-like symptoms, contacted and then entered The University of Kansas Hospital around 6 a.m. on Monday. The hospital says the patient recently worked as a medical officer on a commercial ship off the west coast of Africa and has a low-to-moderate risk of Ebola.

The patient is being kept in strict isolation and tests are being done to determine a diagnosis. Dr. Lee Norman, chief medical officer of the hospital, says there are many other diseases that fit the patient’s symptoms, but the hospital is following guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control to determine whether the patient has Ebola or not. Doctors expect blood samples to be returned by 5 or 6 p.m. on Tuesday.

The patient, a Kansas City, Kan., resident had been on the medical ship as recently as four-to-five days ago according to Dr. Norman.

Via KCTV 5:

Doctors at the University of Kansas Hospital are expecting results of blood tests Tuesday that could determine if a patient who recently worked on a ship near Africa has contracted the Ebola virus.

UPDATE:

 WIBW:KU Med Center: Isolated Patient Negative On First Test:

KANSAS CITY (AP) — University of Kansas Hospital officials say preliminary tests show a patient who arrived Monday with Ebola-like symptoms does not have the deadly disease.

Chief medical officer Dr. Lee Norman said Tuesday the man is believed instead to have another tropical disease common in central and western Africa, although doctors haven’t determined which one.

New York Times Writer Paul Krugman!!

The Noisy Room: Marxist troll extraordinaire — for his exemplary idiocy

Despite bitter opposition, despite having come close to self-inflicted disaster, Obama has emerged as one of the most consequential and, yes, successful presidents in American history.

It’s impossible to plumb the depths of Krugman’s delusional state. It’s even harder not to laugh one’s self silly over such moronic statements. Get the Kleenex ready as he just keeps on digging:

Yes, Obama has a low approval rating compared with earlier presidents. But there are a number of reasons to believe that presidential approval doesn’t mean the same thing that it used to… More important, however, polls – or even elections – are not the measure of a president. High office shouldn’t be about putting points on the electoral scoreboard, it should be about changing the country for the better.

[…]

Am I damning with faint praise? Not at all. This is what a successful presidency looks like.

Up is down… black is white… and Obama is the greatest President ever. Krugman needs to seek a comfy couch and a terabyte of storage for the lengthy analysis of his on-going psychosis.

Eric Holder, Attorney general Of The United States!!

The Independent Sentinel:for comparing Ohio’s attempt to scale back early voting from 35 days to 28 days to 1964 and 1965 KluKluxKlan murders.

“It is an affront to millions who have marched, and fought, and too often died to make real America’s most basic promise. Three brave young men gave their lives in 1964, as did a courageous Detroit mother of five in 1965, so that others might be able to vote and be truly free. Are we now to turn our back on those ultimate sacrifices,” Holder pontificated in a video message on the DOJ website.

Having 7 fewer days to vote early – and probably commit voter fraud – is the same as Mississippi Burning in his mind. Drawing moral equivalence between completely unlike entities is a favorite technique of this administration.

Texas Democrat Gubernatorial Candidate Wendy Abortion Barbie Davis!!

Nice Deb :for choosing to run an ad highlighting her opponent’s use of a wheelchair.

Good Lord, the flop sweat emanating from her campaign before and especially now, in the wake of the atrocious ad, is something to behold.

Gosh, is it possible that this woman who made her name in politics by filibustering an anti-late-term abortion bill in pink sneakers, is not actually ready for prime time? Could it be that her candidacy is essentially the creation of the Democrat media complex – who should share the weasel award with her because now while the chips are down, they refuse to defend her and are in fact looking away, cringing with embarrassment?

Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control!!

The Glittering Eye : who in an interview on Sunday said in reference to the nurse infected with Ebola in Dallas:

At some point, there was a breach in protocol, and that breach in protocol resulted in this infection, The (Ebola treatment) protocols work. … But we know that even a single lapse or breach can result in infection

In other words he went out of his way to blame the patient, getting far out in front of what was actually known about the situation. He didn’t need to do that. He could’ve said something to the effect that they were very confident in their protocols and were exerting every effort to determine how this individual was infected and leave it at that. Now not only has he slammed the poor woman gratuitously, if it turns out that there’s a problem with the protocols he will have dealt a blow to the credibility of the CDC.

Arrogance and an uncaring attitude qualify him as a weasel.

Well, there it is! Are these worthy weasels or what? Check back Thursday to see which Weasel walks off with the statuette of shame!
