We have a lot more to be afraid of Ebola than we are being told.

Only two months ago this headline exploded on the web site The Daily Beast:

Two American Ebola Patients Coming Home to U.S. for Treatment

Two Americans infected with the virus will be brought to Atlanta for treatment as the World Health Organization deems the West African outbreak ‘out of control.

As would be expected, a sad, sick comedy of errors followed. Or was it something worse. What began as a few people dying every day in Africa has now been predicted to become thousands every week.

The deadly disease that is running unchecked in Africa has finally arrived in America. The government that first told us that Ebola would never be on U.S. soil then brought two American medical personnel home on August 1st for treatment after they contracted the disease in Liberia. Did the worldwide reporting of this news prompt a man in Liberia who had the disease to come here for treatment? Recommendations that all international flights from West Africa be banned were rejected by Barack Hussein Obama. Then only last month a citizen from Liberia, Thomas Eric Duncan, bought a plane ticket and flew to Dallas, Texas because he thought he had Ebola and was seeking treatment. He went to a hospital but they ignored the details he gave them about coming from Liberia and they sent him home with some antibiotics. He did have Ebola and he died from it days after returning to the same hospital but not before he showed us how ill-equipped we were to handle the problem. Now two of the nurses who cared for Mr. Duncan in the hospital have tested positive for Ebola in spite of the precautions that were set up.

And the CDC, the Center for Disease Control, hasn’t got a clue how they contracted the disease.

One of the important problems we are facing is the incomplete and inaccurate information we are given by our government-paid “medical experts”. We are told that the disease spreads through contact with bodily fluids such as urine, feces, saliva, blood and vomit. We were first told the disease was not airborne but what about an infected person sneezing? Not just sneezing in the air but on a tissue, a door, a chair, a table or a doorknob. What happens to that tissue? Before Mr. Duncan went back to the hospital it was reported he had vomited outside his apartment and the maintenance people simply hosed the vomit into the sewer. But aside from how these fluids are cleaned up and disposed of the number one question should be: How long does the disease stay alive outside of the body? Well it must stay alive if it can contaminate surfaces where unprotected people can come in contact with it. That’s why they have been sterilizing every place the infected victims have lived – days after they left. And the CDC mentioned that contaminated garments, towels and other waste from the hospital has to be incinerated by special hazmat disposal companies. Does that mean the Ebola virus remains alive on that contaminated material for prolonged periods of time such as days and weeks?

On October 8th, Breitbart News reported another severe warning about the disposal of dead Ebola victims. This certainly suggests that the Ebola virus remains alive for long periods of time after death occurs. Here is the critical passage:

The bodies of dead Ebola victims can still pose a significant threat, which will prevent families from having traditional funeral services. According to the Center for Disease Control’s (CDC) guidelines, Ebola “can be transmitted in postmortem care settings by laceration and puncture with contaminated instruments used during postmortem care, through direct handling of human remains without appropriate personal protective equipment, and through splashes of blood or other body fluids (e.g. urine, saliva, feces) to unprotected mucosa (e.g., eyes, nose, or mouth) which occur during postmortem care.” CDC officials said there are “large quantities” of the Ebola virus that still remain in the dead body.

The old cliche that says: I’m from the government and I’m here to help, becomes more worrisome every day. Barack Hussein Obama is a consummate political animal who is currently preoccupied with staying in power. The elections next month look to be a turning point in his administration that will drastically alter his plans to “fundamentally change America”. Obama’s single strategy seems based upon his belief that “a crisis is a terrible thing to waste”. His Muslim heritage is affecting the lives of millions in the Middle East as he gives military aid to radical Islamic terrorists and publicly refuses to acknowledge that Islam – his religion – is the motivating factor behind the war that has slaughtered thousands of Christians. With such an abject void in moral ethics it is not too much to think this man could use a national emergency such as an Ebola pandemic to further his own purposes. We have a lot to be afraid of.

Democrats lied, people died: massive WMD stockpiles existed in Iraq

Saddam takes credit for 9-11 Truth and Consequences

Saddam takes credit for 9-11
Truth and Consequences

The New York Times is now admitting that WMD always existed in Iraq, they were discovered many times, even injuring our soldiers, but the despicable leftists would crucify anyone who told the truth. So people lied to save their own skins. “Bush lied, people died,” as the slogan went. But the liars are, were and have always been the Left. Chief among them was presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton. I wrote about all this as far back as 2005. The entire episode is a disgraceful example of just how vicious, selfish and dishonest official Washington and its media minders can be.

Consider: back in the 1990s, both Bill and Hillary Clinton swore up and down that Saddam Hussein had WMD. John Kerry and other assorted Democrats followed suit. That was the narrative of official Washington. But when Bush opted to invade Iraq – not merely because of that threat, but for many other equally justifiable reasons as well – suddenly they all became scoffers at the whole notion. They began to beat the drum “Bush lied, people died.”

At the center of that narrative was the testimony of former Ambassador Joseph Wilson, whose wife, CIA analyst Valerie Plame recommended him for a WMD “fact-finding” mission to Africa. The assertion was that African governments were selling yellowcake uranium to Saddam. They were and they did. The lying and disinformation spread about this issue could fill a book. I wrote three separate articles trying to describe it all. I gave up after a while there was so much duplicity. All among the Left, including the disgustingly dishonest Joe Wilson, a has-been who never was, trying to ressurect some kind of career, and his wife, who knew better.

People should be in jail, but in the Left’s world they become heroes. Meanwhile, Americans died while Democrats lied – relentlessly doing everything in their power to disrupt the war and hobble Bush for strictly partisan reasons, while our armed forces were forced to deal with their rampant interference.

Never let Hillary Clinton, and anyone who would support her, forget.


Qatar Awareness Campaign – Boeing @StopQatarNow


W. James McNerney
Boeing Corporate Offices
100 North Riverside
Chicago, Illinois 60606

Dear Mr. McNerney:

This letter is being sent to you on behalf of the Qatar Awareness Campaign Coalition. The purpose is to inform you and the public of the activities of Qatar. Why? According to a senior Boeing executive last October, “The relationship [between Qatar and Boeing] is very strong; it’s kind of like a marriage.

Yet Qatar is perhaps the preeminent sponsor of terrorism in the world today, and a sponsor of the ISIS genocide!

Few companies in the country hold the same esteem in the public eye as The Boeing Company. A manufacturer of commercial airplanes, and an indispensable military contractor, Boeing has helped build modern America. It simply boggles the mind that Boeing has contracts with terrorist-friendly Qatar for state-of-the-art commercial and military systems that total tens of billions of dollars.

In July this year, Boeing announced an $18.9 billion dollar deal with Qatar Airways for 50 777-9Xs wide-body jets. Qatar Airways also agreed to rights to purchase an additional 50, as well as four 777 Freighters, bringing the potential value of the deal to $39.8 billion. Finally, Qatar is also set to deploy Boeing’s latest flagship 787 Dreamliner plane.

One may ask, why does a country with only 278,000 citizens, and a total population of two million people, need so many airplanes? Doha is also a significant regional narcotics hub. Indeed, Qatar is strategically partnered with a smuggler of Taliban heroin, the Pakistani National Logistics Cell. Additionally, Qatar Airways’ flights have been found to be carrying narcotics into Doha from South America.

Still, commercial contracts are but one side of the coin. In March, Boeing agreed to supply Qatar with 24 Apache attack helicopters and three Boeing 737 Airborne early warning and control aircraft. These sophisticated weapons systems are being sent to the same country which created the genocidal Islamic State.

Below are some supporting facts that should give Boeing a reason to file for “divorce” from their Qatari spouse:

  • In September 2011, in the course of 15 days, six drug mules were arrested in Ezeiza, Argentina carrying liquid cocaine. According to one official, “Ezeiza-Qatar is a new and rare route for drug trafficking. It exploded strong. On average, during the turn, there was one case every two days.”
  • In March 2013, suspects again were arrested in Argentina carrying narcotics. They were set to board a Qatar Airways flights to Doha.
  • Qatar is evidently using Boeing C-17 Globemaster transport aircraft to supply Islamists in Libya, where Egypt and the UAE are attempting to keep the country from allying itself fully with the Islamic State.
  • You, Mr. McNerney, are a Trustee for Northwestern University. Northwestern has a campus in Doha whose development costs have been fully covered by the Qatar Foundation.

Qatar is a benefactor of the genocidal armies of ISIS, al Qaeda, and Boko Haram; it is involved in Taliban narcotics trafficking through a relationship with the Pakistani National Logistics Cell; and profits from operating a virtual slave state. Qatar has leveraged its relationships with violent jihadi groups to its own benefit, and to the detriment of the United States and her allies.

The QAC Coalition and petitioners ask that you consider the attached sourced report on Qatar’s activities. The links cited are vetted and credible sources. We hope you take the time to verify the truth of the statements for yourself.

After doing so, the Coalition of the Qatar Awareness Campaign calls on you to exert due influence on the Qatari government to cease any type of involvement in all forms of Islamic terrorism, slavery, and drug trafficking!

#Ebola – Blood, vomit and diarrhea-soaked hazardous materials piled to the ceiling…

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

A second person, who was a caretaker in the Dallas hospital for Duncan – Patient 0 – has now tested positive for Ebola in Dallas. The nurse flew the day before her symptoms became apparent from Cleveland to Dallas. Those passengers who were unlucky enough to be her travel buddies went to the four winds and on it goes. If you flew on Frontier Airlines flight 1143 Cleveland to Dallas/Fort Worth, for God’s sake get to a hospital and get checked and fast. Dr. Tom Frieden, head of the CDC, should resign immediately for overseeing what could be a modern-day Captain Trips event in the US.

The nurses who cared for Duncan before he died and all the medical staff are terrified and pissed. I don’t blame them. When I read this morning how he was handled, it sent a long, cold shudder down my spine that just kept on going. The kind that makes you go weak in the knees and elicits an ardent prayer that somehow this plague is contained before we have mass graves and incinerations to deal with.

Excerpts from CBS Houston:

A Liberian Ebola patient was left in an open area of a Dallas emergency room for hours, and nurses treating him worked without proper protective gear and faced constantly changing protocols, according to a statement released by the nation’s largest nurses’ union.


Deborah Burger of National Nurses United, who convened a conference call with reporters to relay what she said were concerns of nurses at the hospital, said they were forced to use medical tape to secure openings in their flimsy garments and worried that their necks and heads were exposed as they cared for Duncan.

RoseAnn DeMoro, executive director of Nurses United, said the statement came from “several” and “a few” nurses, but she refused repeated inquiries to state how many. She said the organization had vetted the claims, and that the nurses cited were in a position to know what had occurred at the hospital. She did not specify whether they were among the nurses caring for Duncan.

The nurses allege that his lab samples were allowed to travel through the hospital’s pneumatic tubes, possibly risking contaminating of the specimen-delivery system. They also said that hazardous waste was allowed to pile up to the ceiling.

And yet the bullcrap and lying flow like blood all over America covering official’s behinds as they claim there is nothing to worry about… don’t panic… calm down… nothing to see here as they prepare for the real possibility of closing another set of eyes and pulling the covers over another body, with more on the way.

The nurses and doctors had to punt. They weren’t ever trained for pandemic procedures evidently and the handling of Duncan was a dark comedy of errors:

The nurses’ statement said they had to “interact with Mr. Duncan with whatever protective equipment was available,” even as he produced “a lot of contagious fluids.” Duncan’s medical records underscore that concern. They also say nurses treating Duncan were also caring for other patients in the hospital and that, in the face of constantly shifting guidelines, they were allowed to follow whichever ones they chose.

When Ebola was suspected but unconfirmed, a doctor wrote that use of disposable shoe covers should also be considered. At that point, by all protocols, shoe covers should have been mandatory to prevent anyone from tracking contagious body fluids around the hospital.

The CDC has not just dropped the ball here, they can’t even find it with both hands and a flashlight:

Nurses at the Dallas hospital where the first patient died of Ebola in the US insisted there were no protocols in place for dealing with the virus – and claimed that no hospital in the country was prepared to deal with the deadly virus.

The director of the National Nurses Union RoseAnn DeMoro directly contradicted the CDC’s initial claim that a breach in protocol lead to the infection of Nina Pham as she treated Thomas Eric Duncan at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas.

She said: ‘Our nurses are not protected, they’re not prepared to handle Ebola or any other pandemics.’

‘The protocols that should have been in place in Dallas were not in place and are not in place anywhere in the United States, as far as we can tell.’

The warnings became even more poignant after it was revealed that a second female nurse who treated Duncan has been diagnosed with the deadly infection.

The number of people who now have come into contact with other individuals who are infected is staggering. The horse is out of the barn and America is beginning to realize that death comes to us all – for some, sooner than others.

There is no excuse when a deadly contagion is being treated to let bloody linen and waste pile up. There is no excuse for processing blood samples that are in the same machines as the general populace. There is no excuse for not wearing protective gear and using decontamination procedures to protect the healthcare professionals. There is no excuse for not banning flights from infected countries. There is no excuse for introducing a plague into the American mainstream that could kill millions – Mr. President, you have no excuses left.
