    Stop EPA Now HELP REIGN IN THE EPA!
    If the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is successful in denying Pebble the right to even submit a permit application to undergo state and federal review, it sets a precedent that the EPA can kill any project in the U.S. at any time. This would give the EPA control over the American economy. ​Please take 30 seconds to sign our petition and send a message to the EPA asking them to stand down and reconsider their preemptive action.

  • WND – ISRAEL SNUBS OBAMA PLEA FOR PERSONNEL IN EBOLA ZONE10/17
    The U.S. may be willing to send its finest, the soldiers in its military, to Liberia to fight Ebola, but not Israel.  According to a report on Twitchy, America’s best ally in the Middle East for generations has refused to go along with a request from Samantha Power, America’s U.N. ambassador.  The reports have pointedly noted that the U.S. cut off flights to Israel over the recent military activity on the part of Hamas, but has continued to provide flight connections to the Ebola-stricken West Africa.  “There’s a little buzz today on this story reporting that Israel has turned down a request from Samantha Power and the United States to provide medical assistance and personnel to Ebola-stricken countries in Africa,” the report said.

  • NEWSMAX – Ebola Chaos Adds to Obama’s Woes - 10/15
    Wrapped around all of this is new, emerging chaos surrounding the nation’s response to Ebola. An increasing number of Americans believe that the government’s response to the spread of this deadly virus is more about preserving “open borders” and political correctness than about preventing the illness spreading to the United States. The claim by the CDC director that a travel ban would somehow make the situation worse seems to most illogical and, in light of recent events, just plain dumb.

  • THE HILL – List: Lawmakers backing travel ban10/15
    Pressure is building on President Obama to ban flights to West African nations that are battling Ebola as concerns mount about the disease spreading in the United States.  Administration officials have resisted a flight ban thus far, arguing it would make it harder to deliver relief supplies to the countries where the virus is rampant.But lawmakers in growing numbers are pushing Obama to reverse course, and polls show the idea has strong public support. Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) says a flight ban is something Obama should consider, adding that the president already has the authority he would need to put such restrictions in place.

  • CONSERVATIVE BYTE – Obama: I Hugged And Kissed Ebola Healthcare Workers -Real Smart thing to do? – 10/15
    Obama said, “I want to use myself as an example so 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.  –  NOTE: Little does he realize that they are still within the 21 day incubation period after having treated the patient?

  • NEWSMAX – Boehner: Ban Flights From West Africa to Stop Ebola Spread10/15
    House Speaker John Boehner on Wednesday joined a rising number of Republicans in calling on the Obama administration to ban west African travel to help stop the spread of Ebola. “A temporary ban on travel to the United States from countries afflicted with the virus is something that the president should absolutely consider, along with any other appropriate actions as doubts about the security of our air travel systems grow,” the Ohio Republican said.

  • GodFather Politics – “What Do You Think Would Happen if We Burned a Koran on Tonight’s Show”?10/14
    The discussion about Islam with Ben Affleck and Sam Harris on Bill Maher’s show is still making waves. Journalist Nicholas Kristof also took part in the discussion, backing up Affleck.  Both Harris and Maher are atheists. Even so, they shot down Affleck’s claim that Christianity is also a violent religion comparable to or maybe even worse than Islam.  Harris also got attacked by Affleck for this comment:    “We have to be able to criticize bad ideas, and Islam is the Mother lode of bad ideas.”

  • THE HILL – White House: Strategy against ISIS militants is ‘succeeding’Any more good jokes out there? 10/14The White House said Tuesday that its strategy to combat the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is “succeeding,” despite gains the terror group has made in recent days that have raised criticisms about the administration’s approach. “We’re in the early days of the execution of that strategy,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest said of the administration’s use of airstrikes against ISIS. “But certainly the early evidence indicates that this strategy is succeeding.”
    ISIS has gained ground in both Iraq and Syria.
  • DICK MORRIS – Dems Using False Flag Strategy To Steal Senate10/13
    Failing to persuade voters to support their discredited agenda, Democrats are now determined to use a false flag strategy to advance in stealth to steal a Senate majority. Masquerading as Independents in four key Senate races, Democratic candidates are embracing a wolf-in-sheep’s-clothing tactic to fool voters into believing that they are not the party hack/rubber stamps they truly are. By pretending that they are Independents, they can take power and help Obama implement his plan to create a one party government in the U.S. 
    Were these “Independent” Democrats true Independents, their presence in our national politics would be welcome. But they are not. If elected, they would each meekly cast their ballots for Harry Reid to be Majority Leader and form a tame part of his bloc that controls the Senate.

  • THE HILL – Pentagon: Climate change a national security threatAre you kidding me? – 10/13
    The Pentagon is integrating climate change threats into all of its “plans, operations, and training” across the entire Defense Department, signaling a comprehensive attempt to tackle the impacts of global warming.  In a 20-page Climate Change Adaptation Roadmap released on Monday, the Pentagon details its strategic blueprint to address climate change, calling it a “threat multiplier” that has the power to “exacerbate” many of the challenges the U.S. faces today, including “infectious diseases and terrorism.”  “Among the future trends that will impact our national security is climate change,” Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel writes in the report’s introduction.

  • THE HILL – Dems want White House shakeup - 10/12
    President Obama needs to shake up his White House staff to give new life to his presidency, top Democratic strategists and former White House veterans say.  They argue Obama needs an infusion of talent if he hopes to recover over his final two years in office.  One prominent party strategist said Obama “should take a flamethrower to his office.”  “He needs dramatic change — it’s not even a debatable point,” the strategist said. “The general consensus that the president is surrounded by people who do him more harm than good because they are more focused on pleasing him than they are challenging him or proposing a different course.”

DOES GOP REALLY HAVE 96% CHANCE OF TAKING SENATE?

author-imageGARTH KANT About | Email | Archive

 

senate

WASHINGTON – At first glance, the numbers seem almost too good to believe, for hopeful Republicans.

In fact, the blaring headlines are startling, and they come from sources not known for pushing GOP fortunes.

The Washington Post’s election model gives Republicans a 96 percent chance of winning the Senate.
The New York Times predicts there is a 71 percent chance Republicans will retake the Senate.
And, the highly respected data-analysis website FiveThirtyEight gives the GOP a 61 percent chance.
If the GOP wants to roll back what it regards as President Obama’s attempt to fundamentally transform America, the party must retake power: the Senate in 2014 and the White House in 2016.

The House looks secure for the GOP, where analysts predict it will keep, and maybe even increase, its majority. Attention is now riveted on the Senate, where 35 seats are up for election on Nov. 4., and Republicans must make a net gain of six seats to achieve a majority over Democrats.

And, suddenly, the prize of Senate control appears tantalizingly close for Republicans.

Helping fuel the GOP momentum is the president’s nosedive in the polls.

In 2009, Newsweek editor at large Evan Thomas called Obama “sort of a God. ” But the publication that nearly deified the president was singing a much different tune last week: “What is certain is that the president remains a drag for his party. He’s barely been invited to campaign with members. His role in the race is as a punching bag for Republicans and as an off-camera fund-raiser for Democrats.”

Politico: Conservatives Fear Chief Justice Roberts Moving Left

Sunday, 19 Oct 2014 01:34 PM
By Greg Richter

NEWSMAX – Conservatives are growing concerned that Chief Justice John Roberts is increasingly siding with liberals on the U.S. Supreme Court, Politico reports.

It all started in 2012, when Roberts sided with the left in a 5-4 ruling that declared Obamacare constitutional.

In that ruling, Roberts was accused of looking for an argument that wasn’t even made in court to justify his vote. Roberts cited the government’s power to tax, even though the White House had maintained the fine imposed on those who don’t get coverage is not a tax.

NIH SPENT MILLIONS STUDYING ORIGAMI CONDOMS, POOP-THROWING CHIMPANZEES INSTEAD OF EBOLA

Breihtbart news

by TONY LEE 15 Oct 2014

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) falsely claimed that it did not have enough money for Ebola research over the last decade, but the agency did find enough money to spend millions studying origami condoms and the poop-throwing skills of chimpanzees.
In an interview with the Huffington Post, Francis Collins, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) head, said the country probably would have had an Ebola vaccine had there not been a decrease in funding over the last decade.

“NIH has been working on Ebola vaccines since 2001. It’s not like we suddenly woke up and thought, ‘Oh my gosh, we should have something ready here,'” he said. “Frankly, if we had not gone through our 10-year slide in research support, we probably would have had a vaccine in time for this that would’ve gone through clinical trials and would have been ready.”

As the Daily Mail pointed out, though, “overall NIH funding sits at $30.15 billion this year – up from $17.84 billion in 2000.” And the NIH found creative uses for their funds.
According to the Daily Mail, the NIH budged included “$2.4 million for a new condom design whose inventor is now being investigated for fraud,” $939,000 to discover that “male fruit flies prefer younger females,” $257,000 “to create a companion website for first lady Michelle Obama’s White House garden,” a whopping “592,000 to determine that chimpanzees with the best poop-flinging skills are also the best communicators, and another $117,000 to learn that most chimps are right-handed.” The NIH also spent “$325,000 to learn that marriages are happier when wives calm down more quickly during arguments with their husbands” and “$548,000 to find out if 30-something partiers feel immature after they binge drink while people in their mid-20s don’t.”

Progressive groups have also tried to falsely accuse Republicans of slashing funding for health agency, running ads claiming that “Republican Cuts Kill” even though the numbers do not back up their claims. In fact, it was President Barack Obama’s budget that proposed cuts to key public health agencies.
As the Atlanta Business Chronicle noted, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) got an “8.2 percent budget increase for fiscal 2014, thanks to a $1.1 trillion spending bill announced by Congress Jan. 13.” In addition, the CDC received more funds than Obama had requested because of Congress. According to the Atlanta Business Chronicle, the CDC’s $6.9 billion “is $567 million more than it received in 2013, “and “this is more than the agency anticipated, because the president’s fiscal year 2014 budget request for it was just $6.6 billion — a decrease of $270 million from fiscal 2012.”

And as Reason observed, the “Pandemic Preparedness Funding” in America’s “Global Health Program” actually saw “a decrease of $22.5 million (-31%) below” its fiscal year 2014 funding because Obama’s budget requested that decrease.

Dr. Jerry Merckel – The Classical Charter School

CLASSICAL CHARTER SCHOOLS
Dr. Merckel left the University of North Florida (UNF) on July 11, 2014 to pursue Classical Charter Schools. At UNF he was a Professor of Electrical Engineering along with Director of the UNF Innovation Program, Associate Dean of the College of Computing, Engineering and Construction and Chair of the Department of Construction Management.

Dr. Merckel’s presentation is about the Educational System and how we can finally do something about it instead of just beating our heads against the wall. A new program has been formed to help local groups form a Classical Charter School in their community. Classical Charter Schools are not private. They are part and parcel of the local school system. They pay us to provide the school. Classical schools advance the ideals of Liberty, something our schools are not doing now.
