Ebola versus ISIS: Which is more threatening

Ebola versus ISIS: which is more threatening

America, in the recent past, has been defined by a series of crises and scandals so profound our very existence has been placed at risk. ISIS, a barbaric Muslim group, seeks to decapitate all nonbelievers and an Ebola plague have been added to the mix. Waiting in the shadows until American forces retreated from Iraqi soil ISIS arrived on the scene more virulent than its predecessor. In the space of a few months their ranks have swollen with volunteers from across the planet including America. With their recent surge in Syria and Iraq an unexplainable brutality has followed in their wake. More calculating and better prepared than Al-Qaeda their front is moving quickly to engulf as much as the Middle East as their assets allow. Obama has stammered and stonewalled in meeting this threat head on. His
coalition of nations to defeat ISIS is in name only. America, so far, has led the bombing assault on isolated sites with coalition members adding salt and pepper raids not helping with the more meaty targets. Our national media has hyped up the threat this newest terrorist group projects. Massively small in numbers, ISIS is more bark than bite. Successful media campaigns to keep Muslim hysteria alive has worked for thirteen years but ISIS, as a threat, does not come near the intensity of that posed by Ebola.

Ebola is coming our way. This twenty first century plague will not be contained by speeches or minor gestures from World governments. Hot zones where the virus is flourishing need to be quickly quarantined. Obama’s decision to send 3,000 American troops into the area is nothing less than suicide for many of these brave folks. Once the body captures the virus there is a 50 to 90% fatality rate. No cure presently exists. Hospitals in affected areas have few doctors and personnel. Most have left knowing their lives were at risk. Ebola has mutated many times. Suggestive evidence exists a respiratory component to its transmission is not far behind. Ebola will reach our shores because of the blind-sided actions of our central government. Tens of thousands of visas have been issued to Africans to visit the United States. Many are student visas. Others are for business or vacations. Strong possibilities exist that a few will bring this vermin with them. Unbeknownst to the American Public more infected souls have been brought into the country for treatment than we have been told. With porous borders the potential spread may be amplified by multiples. Ebola is similar to ISIS, the virus has no heart or soul. Yet its virulence is exponentially worse than the scourge ISIS brings to the battlefield. Bad policies, bad politics and insurmountable incompetence will bring ISIS home to roost. Best case scenario a few minds will come to grips with reality concerning this disease and provide a proportional response. As of this writing ISIS is finally receiving the attention it deserves, Ebola is not.

Infectious Borders

Infectious Borders

Catastrophic consequences of Obama’s open border policies are emerging throughout the country in the form of infectious diseases. Enterovirus 68, a very rare strain of this virus, is spreading epidemically across the nation. Rarely seen above the southern border is endemic below it. Thousands of hospitalizations resulting from this contagion have been reported. Asthmatic children have been especially hit hard with this bug. The CDC has been nearly dismissive concerning the potential threat of this pathogen and others that are coming in with the illegal masses. Administration officials have provided only lip service when approached on this subject. An uptick in chicken pox, head lice, MRSA (methicillin resistant staph aureus), scabies and tuberculosis have been noted by border agents. Quarantine facilities are nil. Where they exist the sick and healthy are separated by mere security tapes. Unleashed into our cities and towns these diseases could cause a pandemic resulting in levels of hospitalizations not manageable by the current system. Illegals are being seeded throughout the country. Many states are not being forewarned of their presence. Children from Central America have arrived by the tens of thousands. Instead of deporting them the majority are being scattered across the nation guaranteeing these illnesses will reach our homes, schools and businesses. Screening illegals as they cross the border for contagions has not been a priority of the CDC or the Administration. Physicians have not been put on the alert for the approaching pandemic. To make matters worse more Ebola patients have been coming into the U.S. for treatment in numbers greater than we have been told. http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-TV/2014/09/10/CNN-Report-Pilots-Flying-Ebola-Patients-Says-More-Exposed-People-Brought-To-US-Than-Being-Reported Yet silence is the only offering from those empowered to protect the nation.

Contagious diseases recognize no borders. As the tidal wave of immigrants move onto our soil invisible vermin come with them. Chagas disease, dengue fever, malaria, measles and hepatitis are hitching rides on these newcomers. From the uncommon cold virus to the esoteric breed of microscopic disaster no one will be spared the wrath of these cruel enemies. Michelle Obama is worried what our children put in their stomachs. She has minimal regard for the contagions brought into the schools by her husband’s misdirected border polices. What can we do? Stay up to date on recent developments surrounding cross border diseases. Keep in contact with local health departments and schools with consideration for outbreaks of rare and common ailments. With alacrity see your health provider quickly when symptomatic. Pediatric, geriatric and immunocompromised populations are most vulnerable to contracting the array of diseases stated in this article. Lastly the pandemics coming were completely set upon us by absurd federal policies. Vote right next time while we still have the right to vote. http://www.wnd.com/2014/06/deadly-diseases-crossing-border-with-illegals/

Muslimization of the American MInd

27 Aug

Muslimization of the American Mind

In a World full of tensions and suspicions reality confronted a nation on September 11, 2001 that was out of sync with geopolitics. Previously atrocities caused by Muslim terrorists visited borders external to this nation. With the advent of Nine Eleven the American conscious was awakened to the fact Muslim radicals wanted to draw us into a conflict they have been fighting for millennia. Over the ensuing 13 years the psyches of the average citizen have been immersed in the daily reports of death and violence perpetrated by a group waiting to be civilized. Whether we like it or not a radical theocracy is on the move and the U.S. is in their sights. President Obama’s irrational Middle East policies have caused consequences not foreseen by the Administration. Haphazard withdrawal of our troops from the area has exited many to once again use barbaric acts to force religious intolerance on those who want to be left alone. ISIS, a word once equated with an Egyptian Goddess, can now claim a new home within the structure of a terrorist group. World-wide attention has been focused on ISIS’ brutality. Grotesque treatment of anyone who does not run with the ISIS agenda is seen in its culture of damnation. Beheadings, rapes, murders of the aged and the young are their signature achievements, nothing more. These actions can instill fear into any rational mind and have redefined a radicalism that is ravenous for acceptance. Yet America’s complacency rises to pre-World War II levels reinforcing the belief this nation is untouchable by a foe ten thousand miles away. Knowing the latter is not true has not moved the Administration to act in a responsible manner. Collective efforts by the international community, to tread lightly, appears to have emboldened not retrenched this enemy of humanity. Decades ago a minor sub-segment of the Arab community began hijacking jets and commandeering ships. After Nine Eleven entire nations were their new targets. Sadly there is not global condemnation of their hideous acts as the recent decapitation of James Foley displays. Thanks to our wayward President and a fawning media Muslimization of the American mind will continue until they realize the danger this group portends. Our country is starved for leadership which is not present in the current Washington crowd. In the next election consider all factors before voting for people who hate America and everything it stands for.

Tyranny on the Hill

20 Aug

Tyranny on the Hill

Congress should be relieved of all its duties and sent home. Their inability to constrain a wayward President, who mocks them every chance he gets, is reason enough to show them the door. Sixty eight months ago Barack Obama promised hope and change to a populous who believed his demagoguery. Their expectations have fallen to new lows because promises made were not promises kept. Without any delay the President began refabricating every institution and tradition which allowed America to become the power house it is. Following the Tyrant’s Handbook Obama has moved along the boundary between Democracy and tyranny preparing the country for his new vision of America. In the President’s view borders are irrelevant as noted by his ambivalence to protect them. Allowing millions to enter the country, without legitimate authority to do so, reeks of his disdain for the curbs the Constitution places on him. Nevertheless Obama has used every agency of government to force his will on American citizenry. His nonstop efforts to involve the Administration in the complexities of American businesses have driven many companies to seek greener fields overseas. Utilizing the Internal Revenue Service, as a belligerent force to threaten his political foes, has the obnoxious scent of Nixonian style politics. Worse when the bread crumbs of deceit lead directly to the White House Obama acts like a good tyrant and hides behind the rants of others. This is exemplified by each and every scandal that has touched his Administration. Important to a tyrant are the changes he leaves behind as his successive edicts take hold. For Obama his management of America’s deterioration will be a legacy no President previously could claim. Congress’s inaction, allowing Obama a free reign, antithetically makes them equally as guilty of undermining America as the President. Dictating national policy by use of Executive Orders runs counter to the foundations of Democracy. Worse, standing down as these Orders take hold, displays an ineffectual legislative branch whose unwritten signature stands next that of the President’s. Tyranny has moved into to every jurisdiction in the nation routed through Washington D.C. Americans have been asleep as their last few rights are being swallowed by a government ravenous to control them. When the last vestiges of Democracy finally fade into the night Americans will remember the good old days when they had the right to vote and speak their minds openly.

Impeachment: Political Theater or Moral Imperative

3 Aug

Impeachment: Political Theater or Moral Imperative

Constitutional crises are extremely rare. When one arises the entire nation becomes embroiled in the substance of the problem as it moves through its various machinations. Two contentious issues have come to the forefront challenging the very foundations of our society. President Obama has used his pen to circumvent Congress to bring his personal agenda into fruition. With the stroke of his writing instrument Obamacare has been remodeled into a format not reflective of the law passed in March of 2010. Dramatically more perverse the President has altered immigration laws which have caused a flood of illegals to inundate our southern borders. Ramifications of both actions are slowly filtering throughout the very structure of this nation. For the former access to health care is diminished, for the latter a humanitarian crisis of proportions so great it challenges the sensibilities of a rational mind. Each of the three branches of government has their assigned roles empowered by a document that is keen on bringing balance and order to the nation. Unfortunately the present occupant of the Oval Office uses the Constitution as a doormat instead of a roadmap. President Obama has thrown down the gauntlet challenging those in the legislative halls of Washington D.C. to restrict his anti-constitutional behavior through impeachment proceedings. He may be granted his wish.

Conservatives have taken a beating over the last six years as progressives sought to undermine every institution, industry and tradition that made this nation strong. The scandal plagued White House has now moved into political territory so devastating it cries out to be checked immediately. Rumors of a pending Executive Order that may provide amnesty to 5 million illegals has percolated throughout the dark corridors of Congress and beyond. Obama may be playing with political dynamite if he goes forward with this scheme. Discussion of impeachment has moved from a whisper to a hum as Republicans continue to deny the inevitable. On July 30th the House of Representatives voted to sue the President for his unlawful use of Executive Orders. The vote was along party lines suggesting the Democrats continue to deny the President is overstepping his authority. A lawsuit, as proposed by the House, could take an extended time period to resolve, potentially ending up on the doorstep of the Supreme Court. Is this merely a delaying tactic in preparation for the trial of President Obama?

Impeachment of the President and other select officials is allowed under Article II Section 4 of the Constitution. During the period this section was written the Founders wanted a means to remove those who exceeded their authority, as established in this great document. In the alternative in the event a high official was falsely accused this section also provided a means for vindication. President Obama has willfully chosen to circumvent Congress by utilizing the privilege of Executive Order. The manner in which he has used this power is in question.
Nullification of laws and or treading on others has brought this presidency to a crossroad in history requiring hard choices Congress has avoided so far. Democrats believe Articles of Impeachment would be political theater to enhance the strengths of a party they distrust. Perspectives of many in the opposing party see impeachment as a moral imperative, nothing less. At this juncture Congress has not displayed its willingness to go down a path only two prior presidents have traveled. Looking forward the outcome of November’s election may determine the fate of a presidency which started with hope and change but may end in disenchantment and despair.

The Shadow Presidency

23 Jul

The Shadow Presidency

Presidents are elected to lead not hide in the shadows only to appear when the World is on the brink. Tensions amongst the nations are bordering on reintroduction of the Cold War, which came to a quiet end during the Reagan years. In recent days two events have occurred which could ignite into regional conflicts if their flames are not contained. Israel launched an aggressive raid on the Gaza Strip in response to persistent missile attacks from this location. Hamas’ aggression has been relentless placing Israeli cities under a dome of hysteria without reprieve. International outrage, as usual, is being levied against the Jewish State though they did not initiate the aggression. President Obama briefly displayed his concern by publically denouncing the high level of causalities in Palestinian territories, yet paying lip service to Israel’s right of self-defense. Displaying minimal leadership in this unfolding catastrophe his press release stated categorically that Israel should return to the 2012 peace plan. Mr. President, Israel was following this purported plan, Hamas wasn’t. As the elected head of our nation the President showed the World for the nth time he is a feckless leader detached from reality.

On a secondary front the downing of a passenger jet over the Ukraine killing 298 people shocked the conscience of many nations, except for one headed by a shadow. In the most shallow terms President Obama promised retribution to those who perpetrated this tragedy, unfortunately leaving out the means to achieve this end. Surprisingly Samantha Power, our United Nations Ambassador, had the effervescence to do what her boss would not take the game to the Russians. In biting tones her words accused pro-Russian forces of this atrocity and laid out potential sanctions the United States could bring to bear. Leading from behind has been the present Administration’s method of managing World crises. With maximum rhetoric and minimal substance Obama’s speeches have conveyed little to resolve the newest wars amongst nations.

Perhaps ghost President would be a better appellation for Obama. Allowing secondary officials to perform primary Executive functions is not a power delegated in the Constitution. House committees are still requesting where the President was during the night of the Benghazi raid. In the IRS scandal the President’s minions claim Obama was first notified of the problem through media sources. We now know the veracity of that notation is untrue. Four year election cycles are done for a reason, to bring competence and confidence to the nation’s highest office. During the last 2 cycles the electorate received much less than they expected. Harsh times are ahead in the event leadership does not emerged from the corridors of power in the Capital. One thing for certain the paralysis in the White House will not be cured until the end of the present four year cycle.
