10/9/2014; A MIXED BAG OF NEWS

Generally I start bookmarking links in the afternoon and continually check right up until post time. Obviously the spread of the ebola virus is a growing danger along with the enterovirus D-68 which has been traced to illegals crossing the border. Political campaigns are starting to get desperate and there was another shooting in St. Louis when the police shot an innocent black youth named Vonderritt myers Jr.,who was reportedly just holding a sandwich which turned out to be a 9MM Ruger which he fired at police three times before it jammed as they exchanged fire. Apparently the protocol in Missouri is that the police are supposed to allow themselves to be murdered just so the blacks don’t get upset. More on that to follow.

    Unrest in St. Louis After Police Officer Shoots, Kills Man
    The officer approached a group of men. One of the men took off running, Dotson said, so the officer pursued. Dotson said the suspect approached the officer in an “aggressive” manner, with a physical altercation occurring. The man then turned and fired three rounds at the officer before his gun jammed, Dotson said.

    The officer, who was not injured, returned fire, shooting 17 times and fatally wounding the man, Dotson said.

    Deadly Enterovirus D68 First Identified in Cities With Large Numbers of Relocated Illegal Immigrants
    The polio-like EV-D68 virus claimed its fifth life in the US

    The deadly enterovirus D68 was first identified in cities with large numbers of relocated illegal immigrant children.
    The origin could be entirely unrelated.

    However, a study published in Virology Journal, found EV-D68 among some of the 3,375 young, ill people tested in eight Latin American countries, including the Central American nations of El Salvador and Nicaragua, in 2013.

    Though the U.S. government is keeping secret the locations of the illegal immigrant children, there are significant numbers of them in both cities in which the current outbreak was first identified, Kansas City, Missouri and Chicago, Illinois, according to local advocates and press reports.

    WaPo investigation finds pre-2012 election intimidation of inspector general and cover-up by Obama White House

    …new details drawn from government documents and interviews show that senior White House aides were given information at the time suggesting that a prostitute was an overnight guest in the hotel room of a presidential advance-team member — yet that information was never thoroughly investigated or publicly acknowledged.
    “We were directed at the time . . . to delay the report of the investigation until after the 2012 election,” David Nieland, the lead investigator on the Colombia case for the DHS inspector general’s office, told Senate staffers, according to three people with knowledge of his statement.

    Nieland added that his superiors told him “to withhold and alter certain information in the report of investigation because it was potentially embarrassing to the administration.”

    Major Garrett Hot Mic Moment On Ebola – Says “We’re Screwed” Then Finds “Stupid Mic”

    It could happen to anybody, as Major Garrett just learned in an incident in the White House briefing room. The topic had moved to the Ebola outbreak, which is still being downplayed as a non-threat worthy of virtual non-response by our ever feckless administration.

    Usually the rational determinations of those who report on these types of things are kept to themselves. Today, Mr. Garrett’s true feelings came out in the form of a hot mic moment in which he was speaking to his fellow journalists.

    Pat Roberts Takes Lead in Two Polls as Greg Orman Endorses Amnesty for Illegals

    In a Fox News poll, Roberts leads Orman, the liberal Democrat running as an “independent,” by 5 points. Roberts leads Orman by a point in a CNN/ORC poll. Three weeks ago, Orman was leading Roberts by six points.

    In Wednesday’s debate, Roberts accused Orman of supporting amnesty after Orman tried to convince voters that he did not. The Kansas City Star reports that Orman does indeed support “a path to citizenship for some of the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants now in the U.S.”

    Do you think the GOPe has gotten a clue that amnesty will cost them everything?Me neither.

    Embattled House Democrats Turn Against Nancy Pelosi

    She has long been among Republicans’ top targets, but some of her own now see value in turning against their leader.
    Three Democrats running in GOP-leaning House districts have used late-stage television ads in a bid to distance themselves from the liberal leader of Democrats’ House caucus—the same caucus they’re fighting to join in 2015.

    “Here’s what I believe: Congress is broken,” says Gwen Graham, one of the Democratic Party’s top recruits, in a recent TV ad as a photo of Pelosi and House Speaker John Boehner flashes on the screen. “Both parties—Republican and Democrat—are to blame. And both need new leaders in Washington.”

    Police Advise Motorists To Avoid Portions Of Westside Due To Obama Visit

    The President will arrive at LAX around 2 p.m. and will then travel to Cross Campus, a shared space for entrepreneurs and startups in Santa Monica, where he will speak on the economy. His visit will be streamed live online.

    Obama will then attend a DNC fundraiser at actress Gwyneth Paltrow’s Brentwood home where tickets cost between $1,000 and $32,000.

    On Friday, he will designate a portion of the San Gabriel Mountains as a national monument before departing around 5:30 p.m. for another evening fundraiser in San Francisco.

    What a full day…give a phony speech so he can charge the taxpayer for the trip,raise some more cash then grab some more land then another fundraiser.

    Biden to Head ‘Law and Order: SVU’ Marathon to Fight Domestic Violence

    The power of television.
    On Sunday, Vice President Joe Biden will be co-hosting a Law and Order: SVU marathon on USA Network with star Mariska Hargitay in order to raise awareness regarding domestic violence. The marathon will include public service announcements about domestic violence and sexual assault, according to Jezebel.com, connected with the White House’s new public relations campaign, “1 is 2 Many,” on the issues.

    (wonder if he’ll try a move on Mariska Hargitay?)

          Make no mistake,my friend…I fly strictly by the seat of my pants.It took me a long time and a lot of trial and error to learn how to post graphics in the reply section.
          Sometimes I post grotesque(are there any other kind?) images of Mooch and Cankles just for Grunt.
          I accidentally hit the caps lock and had to re-type this whole damn thing.
          This not just a job…it’s an adventure.


          • Computing: It’s not for the timid. You say, “It took me a long time and a lot of trial and error to learn how to post graphics in the reply section.” No kidding. I’ve manually coded in so many graphics in eighteen years of my War With HTML. It’s still as big a pain as ever.

            Howsomever, WordPress seems to have changed the rules. Look at your posts (one with a pic). See the <start and end> parts of the tag sticking out on either side of the graphic? “Just the URL.” I suppose this gives WordPress some better control over how graphics are sized for the page. Even I can post pix here now; I didn’t have that power before (that I ever got to work).

            I’ll try not to abuse the privilege. 🙂

              Before my daughter had mercy on me and showed me how to copy and paste I had to write down all the little numbers and letters in an url and manually type them in to get an article to show up.
              I had never even touched a computer until my stepdaughter moved in with us in 1998 and brought her machine.She set me up with an e-mail account and got me registered on e-bay(I was heavy into buying/selling cap guns then).That was the extent of my “expertise” for a very long time.

                Gotta admit, my path into computers started pretty early. One Christmas or birthday, I got a toy that was plastic and metal, and when assembled into a Rube Goldberg-looking thing, did calculations. Ah, wondrous websearch! Here it is!

                But my childhood wasn’t totally stunted. We had cap guns. Cap guns are cool.

    A dramatic new political advertisement underscoring the plight of unemployed Millennial voters is taking aim at vulnerable Democratic senators who aligned themselves with President Barack Obama’s economic policies.
    The ad, sponsored by Americans for Prosperity, takes a striking new approach to economic messaging, one that replaces the usual blizzard of statistics and jargon with the forlorn faces and emotional angst younger voters—and, by extension, their parents—are experiencing in today’s hostile jobs market.

    Scarborough: Democratic Senators Privately Trash Obama

    Well-connected MSNBC host Joe Scarborough said this morning that former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta’s stunning criticisms of President Obama are just the tip of the Democratic iceberg, claiming that senior Democratic senators are busy “trashing Barack Obama up and down when the red light’s not on,” but muting their criticism once the cameras are rolling.

    I think a majority of career politicians haven’t liked or trusted this incompetent prick since the day he was elected but never dared criticize him.

    US Supreme Court: North Carolina Democrats may not have their election fraud, after all.
    The Supreme Court, with two Justices noting dissents, on Wednesday afternoon allowed North Carolina to bar voters from registering and casting their ballots on the same day, and to refuse to count votes that were cast in the wrong polling places. Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor dissented. The majority did not explain its action.
    PS: Two formal dissents. Two. The Left couldn’t even get the tattered dignity of a five-four split. Guess Elena Kagan and Stephen Breyer value their long-term reputations more than Ginsburg and Sotomayor do…

    NC 3rd Party Senate Candidate to Participate in Debate Thursday
    This little pissant delivers pizza.How could he be running a statewide campaign,Hmmm???D’ya think some big money dem donors are helping him?

    The Libertarian candidate for U.S. Senate Sean Haugh, the pizza deliveryman who some believe could be a spoiler for the Republican come Election Day, will appear with Sen. Kay Hagan (D-NC) and Republican state House Speaker Thom Tillis in a televised debate hosted by the League of Women Voters and Wilmington’s WECT.


    • Re: Libertarian candidate for U.S. Senate Sean Haugh

      At first, I was confusing this with the independent running against the pig castrator and the chicken-hating lawyer, but that’s Iowa, right? At least he had a good commercial. This guy’s got a lot of videos on YouTube, the sit-and-talk-to-the-camera kind. I only read some descriptions. Not sure an anti-war message will carry many voters this year.

    School Told to Call Kids ‘Purple Penguins’ Because ‘Boys and Girls’ Is Not Inclusive to Transgender
    Children displaying oppressive cisgenderism

    “Don’t use phrases such as ‘boys and girls,’ ‘you guys,’ ‘ladies and gentlemen,’ and similarly gendered expressions to get kids’ attention,” instructs a training document given to middle-school teachers at the Lincoln Public Schools.

    “Create classroom names and then ask all of the ‘purple penguins’ to meet on the rug,” it advises.
    No doubt about it…the inmates have taken over the asylum and our children will pay the price for it.


    • I can never figure out how eliminating gender references is ‘inclusive.’ Isn’t that more ‘exclusive?’ Like you’re rejecting traditional references and making up your own gender-neutral ones? That’s exclusion. And stupid.

        “Progressives make things up as they go along then try to force people to submit to the anti-family,anti-Christian values this nation was founded on.I don’t even want to consider what lies my young grandchildren will be taught in school.I just pray my kids will pass on the lessons I taught them many years ago.


        • Exactly, Pete, it is entirely about “anti-family,anti-Christian values.” Reality is just so obstinate about persisting, but the Regressives are sure they can think and wish (hope & change) their version into fact. There’s no such things as boys and girls. Or marriage and family. There’s no such thing as values, period, for that matter. At least, not in any sense of good and bad, right and wrong. Just multi-cultural level-playing field. Complete unreality. One defies fact, reality and the Spirit of Truth at one’s mortal, and immortal, peril.

          Speaking of values and multiculti:

          UK Deputy Prime Minister “Nick Clegg has expressed concern that the Government’s plans to promote ‘British values’ in schools could alienate moderate Muslims. The Independent, c/o WZ

          On top of everything else wrong with this, I don’t think alienating “moderate Muslims” is the real threat….

    Dem Congressman John Barrow New Ad: ‘I Voted Against Nancy Pelosi As Speaker’
    Not shy one bit about distancing himself from Nancy Pelosi. Democratic congressman John Barrow of GA’s 12th district lists a few items that make him sound more like a conservative Republican than a Dem. Cutting spending, Keystone, cap & trade and repealing Obamacare mandates, Plus- he voted against (and probably will again) Nancy Pelosi

    Radical Leftists & Professional Agitators Gather in St. Louis City to Plan Tonight’s Riots
    There were several livestream feeds that popped up almost immediately after the shooting was reported, and they documented the anatomy of these modern protests. If you happened to tune in during the night, you saw a bizarre mix of south St. Louis residents, trained Occupy protesters (some of whom claimed to be veterans of Occupy Oakland), masked anarchists, and people who seemed like they just saw a line and thought the only sensible thing to do was to get in it.

    TATE OF MISSOURI Orders Activation of Emergency Operations in St. Louis County THURSDAY
    This document was sent out Wednesday warning of Emergency Conditions in the St. Louis area this weekend.

    The St. Louis County Emergency Operations Center will be activated at 4:00 PM Thursday and remain activated until midnight Tuesday morning.

    The activation is in response to intelligence information and planned demonstrations over the holiday weekend which is being organized as a “Weekend of Resistance.”

    Far left Ferguson protesters are planning mass demonstrations in St. Louis starting Thursday.

    Local far left Ferguson activist Tef Poe told supporters this week,

    “Don’t come t Ferguson if you aren’t ready to die.”

  17. That Spanish nurse who contracted Ebola? Her boyfriend has been isolated. Her dog has been killed. Not caged and isolated for testing. Killed.

    “It’s only a dog,” right? I suppose some people really do think that way, like whoever abandoned the twenty puppies the moose-hunter found the other day, or whoever dumped on the highway all the dogs we’ve had. But for Real, Actual Human beings, not just those with mere human DNA but actual souls, the love you feel for your pup can be downright maternal.

    High School play is tribute to Vietnam and veterans

    “It is our greatest hope that the vets in our area will see this play as a tribute to their sacrifice and service,” said Susan Crabtree, Bartlesville High teacher and the play director.

    The production is not for the faint of heart, the depictions of war and its effect on all those involved are realistic, graphic and unrelenting. The plot follows six women who served as nurses, a Red Cross volunteer, and a USO entertainer.

    Worth a read to the end.

    From my Fox News Update email: “The latest batch of Fox News polls reveal that as voters tune in to midterm contests they’re flipping past Democratic candidates as President Obama’s dire unpopularity takes its toll. In Kansas, where the president sits at 63 percent disapproval, Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., is turning his race around. Roberts leads independent Greg Orman 44 percent to 39 percent. A mid-September Fox News Poll had Orman leading 48 percent to 42 percent.”
