OBAMA’S VETERAN’S DAY: Humiliating America in China

imagesOriginally posted at Clash Daily

For Veteran’s Day, “Economically Uncooperative” Barack Obama was in China for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit. While there, he apparently felt it was the perfect time to weigh in on government oversight of the Internet. After all, to ensure that political protest would be held to a minimum, the Chinese have successfully banned social media like Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram.

Now that’s an inspiration if ever there was one.

As Ted Cruz so rightly put it, if Obama has his way “Obamacare for the Internet” will “operate at the speed of government.” Cruz may be onto something, because after the midterms trouncing the Democrats took, Obama is probably hoping there will be a regulated, government-controlled Internet in time to influence the next election.

Meanwhile, back in China, in addition to taking direction on how to tamp down dissent on the Internet, Mr. Obama appears to be taking fashion advice from Chinese President Xi Jinping, who is apparently taking fashion advice from his wife, the fetching Peng Liyuan, by choosing Mao-style tunics for the “national costume” tradition started by Bill Clinton in 1993. And even though leaders could choose between purple, green, or brown tunics, Vladimir Putin, who usually prefers to spend his time shirtless, surprisingly chose the same purple version as Obama.

The purpose of the APEC getup is to take a group photo similar to the one where Obama blocked a dignitary’s face as he goofily waved at the camera. The hope is that the matching ensembles will promote an image of solidarity between world leaders, three of whose only commonality is enjoying dressing up like Mao.

With the Internet issue nailed down and the clothing conundrum worked out, there remains but one problem – Barack “You Can’t Take Him Anywhere” Obama seems incapable of comporting himself like a grown-up Communist.

In anticipation of the APEC summit in Beijing, the Communist Party initiated a “manners” campaign where residents of Beijing were given six months to learn how to act civilized. Now it seems as though they shouldn’t have bothered, because despite the purple silk shirt, Barack Obama was so ill-mannered that even people unfamiliar with etiquette were mortified.

It started when the president decided to ride around in the Beast, a Chevrolet Kodiak-based, Cadillac-badged limousine that is more like a tank. By doing so, Obama shunned the pride of the People’s Republic, the Hongqi, or “Red Flag,” a 55-year-old limousine resurrected as part of China’s effort to rescue the auto market share from foreign automakers.

Heck, Putin knew enough to leave his stallion in Russia. Moreover, how would Obama feel if Xi Jinping eschewed his offer to ride around Washington, DC in style and chose a rickshaw instead?

The other leaders graciously agreed to be transported, one-by-one, to the banquet, cultural show, and fireworks in a Hongqi. Ramping up the pageantry, China’s top state-run channel even televised all the other leaders of the 21 APEC member states arriving at the Water Cube, the Olympic swimming venue, in the iconic socialist limousines along red-lit avenues.

In China, where cigarette smoking is ubiquitous, especially among men, Obama then added insult to injury when he stepped out of his souped-up hot rod chewing Nicorette gum. Horrified Chinese Internet users branded the gum-chewing, purple-shirt wearing, American automobile-riding president as boorish and cavalier, calling him an “idler” and a “rapper.”

Yin Hong, a professor of journalism at Beijing’s Tsinghua University, said about the president, “We made this meeting so luxurious, with singing and dancing, but see Obama, stepping out of his car chewing gum like an idler.”

Now the Chinese know exactly how America feels. Hong should thank his lucky “five stars” that Michelle didn’t come along on the trip toting a hula-hoop.

Either way, when it comes to Communist ideology and government control of the Internet, at least in China, America’s “Idler” president is among like-minded comrades.

And just one week after sending a gracious note to Iran’s Ayatollah, the president, seeking out yet another new friend, told the president of China that he wants to “take the relationship to a new level.”

And although rude, crude Obama chews wads of nicotine-infused gum and rides around Beijing in his own version of a Sherman Tank, at least he was wise enough to avoid World War III by choosing not to feminize the purple blouse Putin is also wearing with a pair of Mom jeans.

Kaci Hickox: Ebola’s Sandra Fluke

Originally posted at American Thinkerindex

Two perfect examples of bleeding hearts choosing a cause and then demanding that the cost be exacted from the hides of others are two liberal women who have made national news despite caring little about the expense of their personal wants.

The first woman is Sandra Kay Fluke (pronounced fluck), an attorney and women’s rights activist who, in her last year of Georgetown University Law School, used polycystic ovary disease as a rationale to denounce the Catholic university’s refusal to comply with an Obamacare insurance mandate to provide women with free contraception and abortion.

Fluke was unabashed in her demands, citing $3,000 in birth control expenses as one of the reasons Americans should be forced to finance contraception for women who feel others should fund their sex lives.

After well-deserved criticism and much controversy, with the help of Democrat handlers, Sandra became the left’s spokeswoman in the fabricated “war on women” and was elevated to the status of patron saint of polycystic ovary disease awareness.  The epitome of liberal activism, Ms. Fluke made it quite clear that her desire for free birth control took precedence over the religious convictions of those she felt should be forced to foot the bill for her contraceptives.

In other words, Sandra Fluke was unwilling to sacrifice her own money, yet she had zero compunction about citing polycystic ovary disease as a way to force others to absorb the cost of her birth control pills.

In order to raise awareness about the “war on women,” Sandra was more than willing to  wage all-out war on religious liberty and oppress anyone who disagreed with her personal views.

Now we have Sierra Leone Ebola nurse Kaci Hickox.  While defying quarantine requirements instituted by the state of New Jersey and the CDC in her home state of Maine, Kaci, who seems unconcerned about the welfare of her friends and neighbors, was concerned enough about herself to don a bicycle helmet while out cycling with boyfriend Ted Wilbur.

In West Africa, Kaci was concerned about West Africans, but back home in America, Kaci is more concerned about Kaci than the safety of those she could expose to a fatal hemorrhagic fever.  So, unlike Sandra Fluke, Kaci Hickox’s message does not involve the “war on women”; rather, it focuses on the futility of a mandatory “self-quarantine” even though it is now being reported that her roommate in Africa is infected with Ebola.

Kaci Hickox cared so much for West African Ebola patients that she was willing to risk her life.  However, once home in the U.S., when asked to inconvenience herself for 21 days by participating in a cautionary self-quarantine, self-sacrificial Kaci refuses to comply.

Leaving aside arguments about the dangers and ramifications of asking a free people to submit to government-mandated quarantines, or whether the Ebola crisis is fabricated or not, there is a huge measure of hypocrisy that needs to be pointed out on Kaci Hickox’s part that is typical liberal modus operandi.

Liberals like Kaci love for government oversight to be enforced on everyone else, but when government tries to dictate something they would rather not do, like pay for their own contraceptives or stay indoors for 21 days, liberals cry the loudest.

Then, in a stunning example of stupidity trumping science, in a statement that encapsulates the negative impact that moral relevancy has had on America, Kaci’s boyfriend Ted said, “We don’t believe that we can get anyone sick.”  That’s because in Obama’s America, a regime Kaci and Ted both proudly identify with, declaring one’s belief places that belief on par with the truth, even if it’s false.

That’s why just like Sandra Fluke, Kaci Hickox may portray herself as altruistic, but as it turns out, her type of progressive philanthropy comes with a price.  Because when Kaci’s hypocrisy is factored into the equation, just like Sandra Fluke, she embodies the high cost of liberal double standards.

Racist Michelle Obama’s Insulting ‘Get out the Vote’ Message to African Americans

Presentation1First lady Michelle Obama sent a TV message to black voters.

On TV One, a station whose motto is: “Where Black Life Unfolds,” the first lady told “News One Daily” host  Roland Martin this:

And that’s my message to voters, this isn’t about Barack, it’s not about a person on that ballot– its about you. And for most of the people we are talking to, a Democratic ticket is the clear ticket that we should be voting on, regardless of who said what or did this– that shouldn’t even come into the equation.

Then Michelle Obama gave everyone who votes permission to eat, are you ready, fried chicken! I repeat, Michelle gave all black listeners dispensation to indulge in fried chicken as a reward for voting.

Roland asked the first lady: “So can we, if we go out to the polls, can we, say, we have a souls-to-polls on Sunday, can we do soul food after we vote?”

To which she responded:

Absolutely. I give everyone full permission to eat some fried chicken after they vote. Only after, if you haven’t voted… You make a good point. Because I am, I do talk about health. But I think that a good victory for Democrats on Tuesday, you know, should be rewarded with some fried chicken.

In the spirit of racist Michelle Obama pigeonholing all black people and using insulting stereotypical incentives to try to lure blacks to the polls to vote Democrat, the first lady should have just gone all the way with her ‘Get Out the Vote’ message and used every imaginable offensive stereotype by saying the following:

Hey all you lazy-ass, welfare-gettin’ mofos! You know who you are; you’re late all the time, so the first lady is telling all the baby Mamas and baby Daddies just once: “You have until 8:00 pm to get your lazy butts to the polls.”

Put down your weed and your Newports, get the 30 other ‘hood rats you live with to come too, and get it in gear.

And don’t even think about jacking a car to get there, there will be none of that. Tell all the basketball players in the ‘hood to carry you if you’re too tired or too fat to walk.

I’m Michelle Obama, and believe me, I’m well aware some of you can’t read the ballot, and that is a challenge for sure. So, do you at least know what the letter “D” looks like? Try hard to remember: “D” was the only letter on your report card until 6th grade when y’all dropped out of school.

So look for the “D” and just vote “D” all the way across, because if you do, “Yes We Can” Barack has a big surprise: Free fried chicken, watermelon, and a Trayvon Martin hoodie for all black voters.

This is important, because if you don’t vote, all those nasty white people are going to come down hard on your welfare benefits. White people are gonna come to the ghetto where y’all live and arrest all the drug dealers and cart away all the free stuff Barack gave you, like those free Obama phones.

Do you want that to happen?

You know that I know that you’re not the most trustworthy bunch, that’s a given. But if you’re tempted to stay home, stop and think about the fried chicken, the watermelon and the hoodies!

When you get to the polling place, try not to be too loud, too rude, or too aggressive. Leave that to the New Black Panthers. And please do not tell too many white people jokes while standing in line.

Watch my lips: Go into the booth, vote “D,” collect your chicken, and then get the hell out of there!

Don’t worry about what candidate did and said what; you’re black and blacks vote “D!” That’s all you need to know.

Do it for me and Barack because you are our peeps! And keep your eye on that fried chicken.

Special Message to New Black Panthers: If white people try to vote and you don’t have a billy club, just beat ‘em back with a drum stick.

If Michelle’s idea works, and blacks show up at the polls, maybe for the next election Rudy Giuliani can help get out the Italian vote by promising the paisanos some salami and provolone.

 

Ebola Hugs and Other Peculiar Happenings

AP_obama_pham_kab_141024_16x9_992Originally posted at American Thinker Blog

As the Ebola crisis continues to swirl and the ineptitude of America’s president continues to be laid bare, certain oddities surrounding the situation are impossible to ignore.

For instance, why, after being administered the experimental drug Z-Mapp, did it take Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebol almost 30 days to recover from Ebola? Since Dr. Brantly’s recovery, other American healthcare workers, as well as freelance photojournalist Ashoka Mukpo, have contracted and then recuperated from the virus with lightning speed.

Meanwhile, the hale and hearty relatives of “patient zero,” Thomas Eric Duncan, who brought Ebola to Dallas via Liberia and subsequently succumbed to the sickness, despite having been fully exposed to Duncan’s virus-infected body fluids, emerged miraculously unscathed from a 21-day quarantine.

For some mysterious reason protective gear did not shield nurses who cared for the dying man in isolation, but Duncan’s family, who lived with him in a small, hot apartment where he vomited and lost control of his bowels, have all been issued a clean bill of health.

Adding color to the drama, now, one week prior to a midterm election that stands to handily trounce Barack Obama’s party, the president recreated his old Chris Christie-Hurricane Sandy bear-hug stunt. This time Obama has resorted to embracing an American Ebola victim who, after leaving the hospital, headed straight for the Oval Office to meet with the fellow responsible for her contracting the hemorrhagic fever in the first place.

The woman who did this is 26-year-old nurse Nina Pham. Nina is the Dallas Ebola survivor who, immediately following her release from isolation at the National Institutes of Health, hugged the miracle worker who astonished everyone when he got Gabby Giffords to open her eyes for the first time after her almost-fatal head wound in the Tucson, Arizona shooting.

The most recent visit was similar to the one where a feeble Kent Brantly rose from his sick bed and swiftly made his way to the Oval Office to meet with America’s Obamacare creator. Once there, Dr. Brantly beseeched boots on the ground in West Africa — boots that Obama refuses to send to Syria to fight a marauding band of ISIS fighters happily going about the business of beheading Americans.

After Nina Pham’s recovery, Barack Obama — who treats Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu as if he’s the one with end-stage Ebola — free of concern about contracting the virus, with minimal screening and full faith in America’s healthcare system, emulated Bill Clinton and leaned in for a face-to-face bear hug from a young nurse whose White House ensemble did not include a beret.

The message the president was undoubtedly hoping the visit would send to America was this: although medical personnel in full protective gear contracted Ebola and irresponsible doctors like Craig Spencer rode NYC subways and went E-bowling with a fever, the disease is not a danger to everyday Americans walking New York City’s High Line park, even if the guy strolling in front of them is coughing out Ebola-infested droplets from his diseased lungs.

Speaking of messages, by getting together with the man whose reckless plan to leave the borders open and insistence on continuing to grant travel visas to West Africans caused her to get Ebola, Nina Pham behaved sort of like the victim of a hit-and-run accident seeking out the driver at fault to go for a Sunday drive.

Actually, by meeting with the president, Pham probably did more harm than good.

The nurse squandered a perfect opportunity to condemn Obama’s refusal to do his job and protect American citizens. Quite frankly, as a type of public servant it was Nina’s duty to insist Obama close the border so that travelers like the late Thomas Eric Duncan would be barred from exposing health care workers to unnecessary risks.

Instead of speaking on behalf of an anxious nation, Pham pulled a Chris Christie and rushed to the White House to provide the president a pre-election day photo op by all but slow dancing with the man who hacked off her feet.

Asked whether there was any concern about putting the president so close to someone only recently recovered from Ebola, White House press secretary Josh ‘Not So’ Earnest shrugged that the president “[w]as not at all concerned about any risk that would be associated with him showing his gratitude… by hugging her.”

Isn’t it odd for Obama to want to “show gratitude” to a woman for surviving a deadly disease she contracted because he simply refuses to do his job?

Nonetheless, a sufferer of the president’s policies smiling and hugging the perpetrator of her pain is a perfect example of how well-meaning people repeatedly assist the world’s most renowned opportunistic user in his ongoing effort to ‘let no crisis go to waste.’ This is especially true since the guy Nina Pham clasped to her breast has made it quite clear that politics take precedence over the wellbeing of the people who came dangerously close to being sacrificial lambs on the altar where Obama currently ‘shares the health.’

Adding insult to injury, as part of the ruse, omitting only a canary yellow HAZMAT suit and a full-face protective mask the president recently upped the deception quotient by visiting a specialized Ebola treatment center at Emory University in Georgia.

Reminiscing about his momentous visit our intrepid president had this to say:

I want to use myself as an example just so that people have a sense of the science here. I shook hands with, hugged, and kissed, not the doctors, but a couple of the nurses at Emory because of the valiant work that they did in treating one of the patients. They followed the protocols. They knew what they were doing. And I felt perfectly safe doing so.

And so, despite the many recovery-related peculiarities and notwithstanding the soiled sheets and missed opportunities for Nina Pham to speak on behalf of those without a voice, even the Ebola epidemic has become about a man who uses hugs to convey reassuring messages to a nation victimized by his stupidity.

Does Obama plan to transfer Ebola to the U.S.?

imagesOriginally posted at American Thinker

As children all across America infected with an imported Enterovirus from Latin America struggle to breathe, rumor has it that Barack Obama has plans to continue “sharing the health” and “leveling the playing field.”

According to Bob Goodlatte (R-VA), chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Barack Obama is so concerned for the health and well-being of the victims of the Ebola virus that he’s planning to shuttle the sick and dying from West Africa to the U.S. for hands-on management.

One of Goodlatte’s aides told Fox News that “someone in one of the agencies” contacted the congressman’s office, saying that Obama’s Ebola importation plan would apply to non-U.S. residents. Although no one said for sure, it’s highly likely that those whose tax monies regularly fund this president’s hare-brained ideas would probably be the same ones paying for the transport and treatment of patients who will in turn expose those footing the bill to the deadly disease.

An alarmed Goodlatte warned that expanding America’s supposed “at the source” Ebola policy to include importing the most deadly of all third-world diseases could put citizens already struggling with MDR-TB, swine flu, and Enterovirus D-68 at even more risk.

So concerned is Chairman Goodlatte that he wrote a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson and Secretary of State John Kerry asking for confirmation of the story.  Thus far, Goodlatte says he has yet to receive a response, which is a strong indication that Goodlatte’s feeling is well-founded.

And Goodlatte is not alone in his concerns. Conservative watchdog Judicial Watch concurs and claims that the administration that’s vigorously looking for ways to destroy America is doing so by “actively formulating” plans to ferry Ebola patients into the U.S. to treat them “within the first days of diagnosis” – which is when they are most highly contagious.

But not to worry, because ever since Barack Obama remodeled the health care system, although Americans with cancer and other fatal diseases have been kicked off their insurance plans and had their premiums skyrocket, the nation has never been better-equipped to take on the burden of a deadly virus that has the potential to wipe out 70% of the U.S. population.

Not only that, but as an added bonus, when renegade Obama grants amnesty to 34 million illegals, if the West African Ebola patients have not died or returned home, they and their large extended families will be in a great position to hit the U.S. citizenship jackpot!

On the irrationality of purposely seeding America with a lethal virus, Goodlatte pointed out:

This is simply a matter of common sense that if you are concerned about this problem spreading – and this is a deadly disease that we’re even concerned about the great health care workers when they come back not spreading it — we certainly shouldn’t be bringing in the patients.

Quite frankly, the congressman should keep those sorts of cautionary insights to himself, because that remark might cue Obama to put his yea and amen on the idea based purely on its potential to wreak holy havoc.

In the meantime, Goodlatte, the one sounding the alarm, is also the one who originally attempted to convince the president that a temporary ban on non-U.S. citizen travel to the United States from the three African countries hardest hit by Ebola would protect U.S. citizens.  From Goodlatte’s logic-based point of view, a travel ban would be “plain common sense … [and] … a practical way to stop this disease from spreading,” which is probably why President Obola has chosen to disregard Bob’s wise counsel.

Instead of “plain common sense” being applied to a treacherous problem, the president continues to maintain that travel bans are a bad idea because the most effective approach is to stop Ebola at its source in West Africa.  Then, quite predictably, he does the exact opposite by clandestinely planning to transfer the source of the problem to the U.S.

SAY WHAT? Pro-Choice Obama Makes Women Feel ‘Unsafe’

Fear-of-the-Dark-and-insomnia-300x180Originally posted at Clash Daily

Women – a key Obama voting bloc – in a stunning admission are now saying that the man they elected mainly because of his assurance that if they wanted to they could kill their unborn babies, makes them feel “unsafe.”

On MSNBC’s Morning Joe, journalist Tina Brown discussed with Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski the president’s declining poll numbers, his enormous ego, and how, when it comes to Obama, women are now feeling insecure.

“I think [women are] feeling unsafe,” Brown said, “They feel unsafe economically. They’re feeling unsafe with regard to ISIS. What they feel unsafe about is the government response to different crises.”

Sorry to have to break it to the women of America, but when you elect a president whose claim to fame includes putting his approbation on partial-birth abortion and denying medical care to infants born alive in botched abortions – no one is truly safe.

Lest we forget, this is the man who told Jane Sturm that her 105-year-old mother, because of her advanced age and despite her zest for life, would be denied bypass surgery and given a pill.

Now here we are, six years after the Hope and Change Express pulled into the station, and lo and behold, women who wanted to be assured unfettered access to abortion are realizing that the guy who promised them that right is personally responsible for the deaths of children whose mothers wanted their children to live.

Little did American women know when they clamored for free contraceptives and government-funded feticide that Obama’s ideological quest to ”fundamentally transform the United States of America” would include killing dearly-loved children with deadly Third World diseases like Enterovirus 68, Ebola hemorrhagic fever, leprosy, MDR-TB and God knows what else.

But then again, when killing is essentially the motivating factor in voting for someone, it usually doesn’t take long for those who thought they’d be spared the horrific fate 3,000 unborn babies endure each day to find out that everyone’s life, born and unborn alike, has very little value to the man currently exercising his right to choose on a whole nation.

Want to talk “unsafe”? How about Obama’s blatant unwillingness, despite the public outcry, to ease up on the national makeover, which continues to expose 300 million people to everything from the potential to be publicly beheaded to the prospect of bleeding out of every orifice of a virus-riddled body?

Said Tina:

I think they’re beginning to feel a bit that Obama’s like that guy in the corner office, you know, 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.
Unfortunately, it’s a little late for Ms. Brown and the large swathe of liberal women she speaks for to be figuring that one out.

Moreover, decrying Obama’s propensity to deflect blame is a strange sentiment coming from women who helped set the current tsunami of tragedy in motion – voting twice for the guy who was “too cool for school”, whose only real promise was to protect their right to kill their unborn children.

RESCUED! NOW A RESCUER: Kent Brantly’s True Calling

ebola-medico-1-300x180Originally posted at Clash Daily

Jesus promised the faithful in Matt 10:39 that “Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it.” In August I wrote an article entitled “Kent Brantly Lives the Gospel from a Sick Bed. “ In the piece I said I believed that Dr. Brantly, who contracted Ebola while serving as a medical missionary for Samaritan’s Purse in Liberia, would survive the virus because of his selfless, Christ-like attitude towards serving the sick and dying.

After being given a blood transfusion from a youthful Liberian Ebola survivor that Brantly had helped care for and receiving a dose of the experimental drug Z-Mapp, and after being flown from West Africa to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta for treatment, miraculously Kent Brantly did survive a virus that has been known to kill 90% of its victims.

At the time there were some who reacted to my praising Brantly with mockery. The gist of what was being said was that if God helped heal Brantly, why did God let His follower get Ebola in the first place?

I think we now have the answer to that question.

Since returning from West Africa and rising from his sick bed healed and whole, Kent Brantly is being used by God to provide blood transfusions to Americans who’ve been stricken by the Ebola virus.

If Kent Brantly had never gotten and survived Ebola, his blood would not have the antibodies needed by those who might otherwise succumb to the disease.

Thus far, Brantly’s blood has been transfused into Dr. Nick Sacra, who also contracted Ebola during his work in West Africa and survived the disease. Also receiving Dr. Brantly’s blood are NBC freelance cameraman Ashoka Mukpoand and most recently Nina Pham, the 26-year-old Dallas nurse who contracted the virus while caring for “patient zero”, Thomas Eric Duncan.

Unfortunately for Duncan, Brantly offered his blood but the two men’s blood type was not a match. That’s why the Liberian Ebola patient who brought the virus to America, despite receiving topnotch care, subsequently died at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital where Nurse Nina Pham is now in isolation.

Now we come to find out that the critical care nurse, like Kent Brantly, is also a follower of Jesus Christ, and that her Bible teacher Tom Ha said, “I expect, with the big heart she has, she went beyond what she was supposed to do to help anyone in need.”

So, in what could be a tragic situation, God has provided a faith-building story that hushes the scoffers and reveals God’s power and purpose in the midst of catastrophe.
Little did Brantly know at the time that Liberia would not be the place where his blood would be poured out to save the lives of many.

Instead, it would be here at home, where the virus he survived would become the antidote that would save American lives. And exponentially, for each survivor more blood will be available to save others falling victim to the deadly pathogen that has crossed the ocean with the intent to wreak havoc, death and destruction.

When Kent Brantly was released from Emory he called it a “miraculous day” and then went on to say:

I cannot thank you enough for your prayers and your support. But what I can tell you is that I serve a faithful God who answers prayers.

Through the care of the Samaritan’s Purse and…missionary team in Liberia, the use of an experimental drug, and the expertise and resources of the health care team at Emory University Hospital, God saved my life.

For all those people who ridiculed Kent Brantly’s gratefulness and thanksgiving for God’s healing by snidely asking, “Why, if God loves Kent Brantly so much, did he allow His servant to get Ebola in the first place,” the answer is found in Genesis 50:20 which says, “You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.”

Kent Brantly’s blood has now been given to three victims of a disease that never should have been in America in the first place.

In 1 Peter 2:24 the Apostle says, “He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed.” Hence, God is using the blood of a man who “died to sin and lives for righteousness” to bring Christ’s healing to the wound called Ebola.

Fear-Monger Nancy Pelosi and Civilization as We Know It

nancOriginally posted at American Thinker blog

Dressed like an elderly, upscale biker chick in a leather jacket that she accessorized with $10,000 Tahitian pearls, Nancy Pelosi recently reemerged.  This time the House Minority Leader made an incoherent appearance on “Real Time with Bill Maher.”

After sharing the apocalyptic prophesy with atheist Maher that if Republicans retake the Senate “civilization is doomed,” the woman whose political party is currently in the process of dooming civilization uttered the following load of rubbish:  “Fear is a motivator, and we…” – as in Democrats – “are not fear mongers.”

So Democrats, who have singlehandedly decimated any shred of hope for America’s future, see themselves as “messengers of hope,” and according to Nancy, “messengers of hope” are what Democrats will “continue to be.”

Oh please!  When Nancy Pelosi says “hope,” does she mean “Hope and Change”-style hope?  Because if that’s what the aging septuagenarian is peddling, God help us all.

It’s funny to hear Nancy Pelosi project onto Republicans the very thing she is, which is a fear peddler.

This is the woman who, in the run-up to the failed stimulus bill, sounded an alarm to warn Americans that “Every week we don’t pass a Stimulus package, 500 million Americans lose their jobs.”

Besides being the person who, at the time, was second in line to the presidency adding another 200 million people to America’s census figures, Pelosi the Prophet apparently didn’t foresee at the time that six years after Obama’s “shovel ready” job-creating fiasco was passed, 92 million people, or approximately half of America’s working-age population, would be not working.

Not to mention the fear mongering that drove the rhetoric prior to the passage of the Affordable Health Care Act.  And speaking of healthcare reform, what exactly was the woman with the oversized gavel selling when she said that if the Republican’s “Protect Life Act” prevented Obamacare abortion funding pregnant ‘women [would] die on the floor?’

It was also Nancy Pelosi, San Francisco’s very own harbinger of hope, who warned America that if the House passed a bill that extended a federal pay freeze, it would “undermine the dignity” of a job that is, quite frankly, anything but dignified.

Speaking of federal workers, during the impending government shutdown of 2013 Ms. Nancy warned there would be a “strong negative” response from Democrats if Republicans didn’t comply with – you guessed it – Democrats.

Then, after the ruling that employers with religious objections could elect not to offer birth control as part of a company’s health care package, it was none other than anti-fear-mongering Nancy who warned Americans that they should “be afraid” of the Supreme Court.

Devout Roman Catholic that she is, Nancy Pelosi even felt it was incumbent upon her to write San Francisco’s Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone to ask him not to attend the Washington D.C. pro-tradition March for Marriage event this past June 14th.  Always the upbeat optimist, Nancy described the gathering as “venom masquerading as virtue.”

How Foot-in-Mouth Pelosi can say that Democrats are not “fear mongers” in the same breath as saying that “Civilization as we know it today would be in jeopardy if the Republicans win the Senate” does illustrate a level of cluelessness on Nancy’s part that is quite impressive.

But then on second thought, maybe Pelosi’s statement was actually positive, because after what Mrs. Pelosi and her Capitol Hill cronies have done to “civilization as we know it, a Republican Senate jeopardizing the current state of Democrat-crafted civilization is truly a hopeful prospect.

The Religion of Liberalism and the ‘Killing of Innocents’

unnamedOriginally posted at American Thinker

In his primetime speech about going after ISIL (with that damned whistling S), a sibilant Barack Obama promised America that “[w]e will degrade, and ultimately destroy” the band of head-chopping thugs that, with each passing day, is growing larger and stronger.  The problem for America is that the president conveyed the message with significantly less conviction than when he promised us that with ObamaCare we could keep our own doctors.

In addition to the unconvincing delivery, Barack was wearing way too much pancake makeup, and he was positioned below drapes that, from a certain angle, created an optical illusion of the president sporting two horns that would turn Beelzebub green with envy.

In his speech Obama made “two things clear,” which, as usual, were anything but.

The first was that even though the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, otherwise known as ISIL, are bitter clingers clinging to armaments and the Quran, according to Obama, they are  “not Islamic,” which is sort of like saying that the Christ in “Christian” has nothing to do with Jesus.

The second, more glaring absurdity was made “clear” when America’s Muslim Apologist clarified for us that “[n]o religion condones the killing of innocents, and the vast majority of ISIS’s victims have been Muslim.”

This is not a surprising statement, coming from a man who believes that there’s a religious “war on women” over abortion but doesn’t believe we’re at war with a group whose faith endorses beheading non-believers.

Either way, religion is loosely defined as a “body of persons adhering to a particular set of beliefs and practices,” which means that a person could be religious about things other than God.

Take liberalism, for instance.  Liberalism’s basic tenets, or “particular set of beliefs and practices,” if you will, center on race-baiting, pushing illegal immigration, harping on “climate change,” and furthering unbridled promiscuity.

Adherents of the religion of liberalism evangelize proselytes to hate the U.S. Constitution, despise capitalism, and fervently revere the holy sacrament of abortion.

As defined, liberalism is a faith to which the president is wholeheartedly devoted.

The fact that high priest Barack Obama, as a central tenet of his religion, condones and even funds abortion serves to discredit the very assertion he made about religion and killing innocents.

Even Joe Biden, who practices the mutually exclusive faiths of Catholicism and liberalism, put a spiritual spin on things recently when he vowed that America “will follow [ISIS] to the gates of hell until they are brought to justice, because hell is where they will reside.”

ISIS believes that killing the innocent gains entry into paradise, and many liberals, despite favoring killing the unborn, eagerly look upward to a future in a heavenly home.

But if Joe thinks that killing the innocent results in the killer going to hell, he should really reconsider his support for the hallowed rite of abortion.

Then there’s the religiously liberal/“practicing and respectful Catholic” Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who actually had the gall to say that she considers abortion “sacred ground.”

Meanwhile, although clearly appalled by the beheading of two Americans by a masked murderer with a kitchen knife, if Barack Obama were to go tit-for-tat in a “killing of innocents” competition, liberalism far out-kills ISIS.

With 700 Planned Parenthood churches funded by the government all over America, the dismembering, scalding, and suctioning of 3,000-4,000 innocents a day surely surpasses even ISIS’s busiest day of sadistic barbarism in the name of jihad.

But what Obama’s statement that “[n]o religion condones the killing of innocents” fails to acknowledge is that the fundamental religion he himself follows fanatically spills gallons of innocent blood daily.

Let’s face it – with Islam at its core, ISIS/ISIL hasn’t even come close to the 60 million babies who have been slaughtered here in America on liberalism’s bloody altar, and when it comes to killing in the name of religion, the main difference between ISIS and liberalism is that no one videotapes late-term abortions and proudly broadcasts them worldwide.

Rest assured, if abortions were public spectacles instead of private executions, James Foley’s and Steven Sotloff’s grisly murders would be just two in a daily barrage of religious sacrifices justified by equally committed zealots.

Moreover, Obama’s insistence that “the vast majority of ISIL’s victims have been Muslim” means nothing, especially since his liberal religion champions the rights of minorities while simultaneously destroying those same minorities in high numbers.

According to the CDC’s latest Abortion Surveillance report:

Between 2007 and 2010, nearly 36 percent of all abortions in the U.S. were performed on black children, even though blacks make up only 12.8 percent of the population. Another 21 percent of abortions were performed on Hispanics, and an additional seven percent on other minority races.

So the president citing Muslims killing other Muslims as evidence that ISIS is not Islamic serves only to further indict himself, because killing the offspring of racial subgroups is what liberals do best.

And which is worse: ISIS killing the enemies of their faith by exterminating the potential seed of Muslims from other sects, or liberals decrying ISIS murdering babies while they themselves terminate hundreds of thousands of future liberals every year?

So once again this president has proven that he knows nothing about a subject that he’s unequivocal about when he’s reading off a teleprompter.

Moreover, despite condemning ISIL, Barack Obama ignores its similarities to the doctrine and practices of his own faith, whose rigidly fundamentalist belief system justifies the killing of many more innocents than ISIS.

Connecting the Dots on Enterovirus EV-D68 Spreading Among Our Children

UnknownOriginally posted at American Thinker

First I’d like to say that I am not a medical doctor, so critics can refrain from mockingly referring to me as “Dr. DeAngelis.”

My credentials lie solely in my experience as a mother and grandmother who’s lived on this planet for more than a half century. That, along with a modicum of common sense and the ability to apply reason and logic, has helped me to connect some dots about many things, the most recent being the outbreak of Enterovirus EV-D68, which is currently affecting thousands of American children.

Recently, I wrote an article entitled “The Invasion of Enterovirus EV-D68.”  Most readers agreed with the premise of the piece, which suggested that “unaccompanied children” who, with the help of President Obama, have infiltrated our nation by the tens of thousands, might have brought with them a rare influenza-like disease that hasn’t been seen in America for 40 years.

However, there were those who argued that my article was pure speculation and conjecture.  That particular group is made up of people who hear an asteroid is heading toward earth and rather than accept the truth choose to focus on discussing the beauty of the planet Uranus.

Although what I wrote did not suggest that I was certain the virus that’s turning American children blue in the face and requiring them to be intubated with breathing tubes originated from illegal children, it certainly posed a question that could be interpreted that way.

For me at least, logic dictates that if a rare virus is absent for 40 years and then suddenly appears in states that illegal children have been recently relocated to, it’s fairly safe to assume that at some point a host carrying the virus showed up in a place where no prior Enterovirus EV-D68 had appeared.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but to be infected with a virus one does need to be exposed to a virus.  So from a non-M.D. point of view, it makes sense that children who migrated illegally to America suffering with respiratory illnesses are the ones infecting previously-uninfected children.

It just so happens that Latin America is home to a fairly long list of scary infectious diseases.  So logic tells us that if people harboring communicable diseases are brought into our midst there’s a good chance those contagions will be passed along to us.

But, if scientific evidence is required, some additional research seems to provide that evidence, because as it turns out my theory that the Enterovirus came to America from Latin America (mainly Central America) is supported by a medical study conducted in 2013 at a U.S. Naval Medical Research Unit in Lima, Peru.  The study, published in Virology Journal, was entitled “Human rhinoviruses and enteroviruses in influenza-like illness in Latin America.”

Although Enterovirus EV-D68 had not surfaced here in America in 40 years, the research team concluded that:

In Latin America as in other regions, [Human rhinovirus] HRVs and [Human Enterovirus] HEVs account for a substantial proportion of respiratory viruses identified in young people with ILI [influenza-like illness], a finding that provides additional support for the development of pharmaceuticals and vaccines targeting these pathogens.

In other words, as of 2013, one year prior to the Obama administration encouraging and facilitating an influx of children from Latin America (primarily Central America) across the border, the U.S. government was well aware that when these children arrived they would be carrying with them a pathogen that accounts for a “substantial proportion of respiratory viruses identified in young people” living in Latin America, as well as a whole host of other viral maladies.

Interestingly enough, while pediatric Enteroviral infections are most commonly spread through a fecal-to-oral route, they can also be transmitted via “respiratory and oral-to-oral route,” which is “more likely to occur in crowded living conditions.”  Unfortunately for those not yet afflicted, “Enteroviruses are quite resilient… remain viable at room temperature …[have an]… incubation period [of] usually 3-10 days… and can survive the acidic pH of the human GI tract.”

That means if little Humberto, who has not yet learned the ins and outs of post-potty hand-washing, shares a doorknob with a kid from Kansas, depending on the practices of the facility, that doorknob could retain the capacity to infect healthy children for the next 3-10 days.

A July 3, 2014 memo from DHS Inspector General John Roth addressed to Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson also confirmed the doorknob theory.  In the memorandum Roth pointed out the following about “unaccompanied children” (UAC):

  • Many UAC and family units require treatment for communicable diseases, including respiratory illnesses, tuberculosis, chicken pox, and scabies.
  • UAC and family unit illnesses and unfamiliarity with bathroom facilities resulted in unsanitary conditions and exposure to human waste in some holding facilities.Respiratory illnesses and “unfamiliarity with bathroom facilities” as well as many other unappetizing facts have been repeatedly confirmed concerning “unaccompanied children” being dispersed throughout America.  That’s why it doesn’t require a medical degree to figure out that the rare-in-America Enterovirus EV-D68 arrived here with children harboring Third-World diseases whose Third-World bathroom habits now share contaminated classrooms with once-healthy American children.
