NY NJ Governors Respond To Obama’s Ebola Leading From Behind

-
Roanoke Times,  10-25-2014, Pg 1, 3:  NY NJ quarantines after NYC doctor diagnosed with Ebola after passing his entrance temperature exam.
-
Obama and his associates appear yet again to be in analysis paralysis over a major leadership issue; this time it’s Managing Ebola in the best interests of the health and welfare of the American people.
-
We have well-established organizations missioned to manage challenges like this to include:
CDC
NIH
HomeLand Security
Dept of Health – Nationally
Dept of Health – In Every State
-
We should have a  US Surgeon General as the President’s official focal point for national health issues – not clear why Obama doesn’t have one but instead appointed a political-hack to be his Ebola-Czar and media manager.

Help Wanted: Ebola Czar, No Experience Needed
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2014/10/help-wanted-ebola-czar-no-experience.html
-
Obama’s pathetic process is now to take the temperature of arriving persons from countries that are suffering from the Ebola Pandemic.  Even the most naïve person recognizes that during the 21-day incubation period, those who are harboring this virus will pass this superficial test and then these “carriers” may well spread the virus when it breaks out as a mature disease.
Something about Typhoid Mary in 1938.

New York, New Jersey order Ebola quarantines
http://www.foxnews.com/health/2014/10/25/new-york-new-jersey-order-ebola-quarantines/
“Both New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Friday they are ordering a mandatory, 21-day quarantine for all doctors and travelers who have had contact with Ebola victims in the ravaged countries of West Africa.
The move comes a day after a Doctors Without Borders volunteer was diagnosed with the disease after returning to the U.S. a week after treating Ebola victims in Guinea.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said the case forced them to conclude that the two states need guidelines more rigorous than those of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which recommends voluntary quarantines.”

Bedford County TeaParty-Fundamentalists Masquerading As Republicans

-
-
The TeaParty-Fundamentalists who have taken over the Bedford Co. Republican Committee, in addition to other Virginia units, have “censured” three republican supervisors (who were elected by and are accountable to the voters) and who apparently either will not or do not salute the snake-banner.
-
Aparently charging forward under the snake-banner were Nate Boyer and Travis Witt.
These are leaders of the same team that threw the 5th District Republican Caucus at Farmville into disarray.  After loosing that fight, they then launched a September sneak attack against the 5th District Republican Committee members at Prospect where they again were thwarted.
-
The fact that a highly motivated minority special interest clique can take over a unit's committee does not mean or even imply that they represent the majority of Republican voters in that unit. 
As an example, in Franklin County one such person ran for county public office and was rejected by 87% of the voters.
Something about delusions of grandeur.
-
It is difficult to comprehend that this group would choose to take such a negative and divisive action at this time, 11 days from a major critical election that has the potential to shift the balance of power in Washington. 
-
Why aren’t these “good Republicans” out campaigning for Ed Gillespie and Robert Hurt instead of fermenting sour grapes?

Michael Brown Autopsy Data Released

-
Roanoke Times, 10-23-2014, Pg 3: “Autopsy casts doubt on incident”
-
NO that’s not it!  Yet another Roanoke Times totally bogus Headline!
-
The autopsy data released does not cast doubt on the incident!  The doubt was cast by “false witness lies” and crowd hysteria compounded by Obama’s Holder his 40 FBI agents, Al Sharpton and all his associates and many left-wing zealots.
-
The Autopsy sheds light on facts like:
Brown beat the officer in the police car.
The first shots were fired in the police car.
All shots were at close range.
All shots that hit Brown were in his front.
No evidence that Brown had his hands up in surrender.
Final fatal shot in top of Brown’s head as he charged forward head-first.
(worked good in football -- not so much this time)
-
These are not facts of “doubt on incident”!
There are facts of clarification that belies the media hype!
-
 Partial reprint from this blog’s Sept 3, 2014 blog item:
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2014/09/bill-oreilly-answers-ag-holders-call.html
NO We’re NOT all Mike Brown
We do not invade stores
We do not steal from stores
We do not intimidate store clerks with our 6’4” 300-pound pit-bull aggression
We do not mouth-off to police officers who give us direct lawful directions
We do not attack police officers inflicting massive injuries to them
We do not attack police officers who issue lawful life-or-death ultimatum commands
When we do these things: Then we’re Mike Brown!

Michelle’s Government Mandated School Lunches Flop

-
Michelle has made a big deal over school lunches.  No more pizzas, lots more fruit and veggies.  No more snack machines in the schools.
-
http://www.foxnews.com/on-air/fox-and-friends/blog/2014/10/17/students-photo-skimpy-michelle-o-school-lunch-sparks-outrage
-
A student recently circulated a photo of his school lunch that has gone viral as a good example of a really bad example of a “healthy and filling” school lunch.
-
“This lunch complies with lunch regulations championed by First Lady Michelle Obama and "implemented" by the USDA.”
-

-
1 Million kids stop school lunch due to Michelle Obama’s food standards
http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/feb/27/federal-audit-calls-new-school-lunch-rules-a-failu/?page=all#!
-
“The federal government’s changes to school lunch menus have been disastrous, causing problems for cafeterias trying to comply with the rules and leaving the menu so expensive or unpalatable that more than 1 million students have stopped buying lunch, according to a government audit released Thursday.”
-

Apparently, Michelle is right up there with Barack in directing the masses to a government enforced social order that they choose for us.
Isn’t it wonderful to have such a paternalistic first family who knows what’s best for us and uses the power of the government to ensure we comply with their wishes!

Help Wanted: Ebola Czar, No Experience Needed

-
Roanoke Times, 10-18-2014, Pg 1, 5:  WHO’s Report slams Ebola response
-
In response to the Ebola pandemic in Africa that has spilled out into other countries, including the US, Obama has appointed Ron Klain, a former chief of staff to vice presidents Al Gore and Joe Biden, as his Ebola Czar.
-
It appears that Klain has no background or experience in the medical field but is a very accomplished political operative.
-
 “That the president chose a political operative rather than a health care expert to head up his administration’s response to an outbreak of a deadly disease says a lot – and nothing positive – about the White House’s line of thinking,” Rep. Tom Price, R-Ga., said in a statement on Friday.
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/10/21/ebola-czar-to-skip-house-hearing-aide-says/?intcmp=latestnews
-
Apparently, Obama’s view is that our Ebola problem is all about “messaging” and not about pandemic management.
This fits well into the narrative that:  the only thing worse than our Ebola problem is Obama talking about it!

Ebola Was About Medicine, Then Politics, Then Money, And Now It’s Race

-
Briton and France have banned flights from infected African countries.
-
Belize has refused to let a US cruise ship dock with a healthcare worker who is not ill but may have handled Ebola materials.  No one from the ship is being allowed to debark.
http://www.foxnews.com/health/2014/10/17/dallas-lab-worker-quarantined-aboard-cruise-ship-other-passengers-stranded/
-
This all started out as a medical challenging pandemic that our CDC and medical community was ill prepared to handle (and still can't).
-
Then Obama and Republicans got into the blame game.  Ebola’s a problem because the government doesn’t have enough money.
-
Then Obama refused to stop flights from infected African countries into the US because it would be a financial burden on the countries affected.
-
It’s now clear that Obama is refusing to stop the flow of exposed people from infected African countries because he’s fearful of the racial implications.
His life-long religious advisor, Rev Wright, once claimed that HIV+AIDS was invented by whities to kill black people.
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2008/03/obamas-rev-wright-very-wrong.html
-
There are already radicals who are claiming that Ebola is being used by whities to kill black Africans and that that we bring our white people back home and give them medications that we don’t give to black Africans.

By Jessica Chasmar - The Washington Times - Thursday, October 2, 2014
Rev. Louis Farrakhan argued in a blog post Tuesday that the deadly Ebola virus is a race-targeting bioweapon created by white people.
-
-
“Methods of Depopulation: Disease infection through bio-weapons such as Ebola & AIDS, which are race targeting weapons,” the Nation of Islam leader tweeted to his 308,000 followers.
http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/oct/2/rev-louis-farrakhan-calls-ebola-a-race-targeting-b/#!#ixzz3Gp4HpCk3
-

-
And why the major delay in isolation and quarantine of exposed persons.  Did we and the CDC forget everything we learned from Typhoid Mary in 1938?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Typhoid_Mary
-
In addition to the above, it’s very disturbing that since 9-11 the Dept. of Homeland Security is not ready to handle viral pandemics that could be launched by a terrorist biological attack.  If not ready for that, what are we ready for?

CDC director: 'Clearly' something went wrong for Texas nurse to contract Ebola

Texas health officials say second healthcare worker at Dallas hospital tests positive for Ebola

The only thing worse than the Ebola problem is CDC Tom Frieden talking about it!
Now he has yet another opportunity to blame the victim.
Yet another nurse who didn’t follow his “protocol” and has no one to blame but herself.
Yet another example of Obama Administration’s total lack of taking responsibility for any issues or problems.
-
At some point the American public will come to realize that Frieden is just another Obama bad choice for an important governmental function.
Which begs the question: has he made any good choices?

Warner Brainstorming About Official Malfeasance

-
The Washington Post reported Friday that Warner called Puckett's son Joseph had discussed potential employment in the private sector and on the federal bench for Puckett's daughter.
-
Warner responded that he simply called Puckett's son to "brainstorm" potential jobs for the senator's daughter, Martha Puckett Ketron.

The Mark Warner -- Sorensen Institute Hypocrisy

-
Tues Oct 14 at 7 PM there will be a “debate” between Mark Warner and Ed Gillespie relative to the election for Virginia US Senator.
This “debate” is sponsored by the Sorensen Institute.
-
Former Virginia Governor Mark Warner (who is running for reelection), is a member of the Sorensen State Board
http://www.sorenseninstitute.org/aboutus/history
-
The Creed of the Sorensen Institute is:
“Trust, Civility and Respect in Politics”
-
Based on Mark Warner’s negative and misleading election ads in this campaign, and his participation in the Puckett Scandal,
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2014/10/the-puckett-flypaper-snags-mark-warner.html
it is difficult to justify how he could be a member in good standing of the Sorensen Institute and be true to their creed.
-
The voters of Virginia need to forget about Warner’s prior service as Governor, because clearly Warner has forgotten and abandoned his past positions, and update their view based on his 97% support of Obama’s initiatives and his major participation in passing ObamaCare.

Virginians Thank Mark Warner For 250,000 Health Insurance Cancellations

-
“Because Mark Warner worked to pass Obamacare, 250,000 Virginians are losing the health insurance they liked, with thousands getting hit with huge out-of-pocket cost increases while unable to see the doctors they trust,” Gillespie said in a prepared statement.
-
-
More than a dozen states plan to cancel health care policies not in compliance with ObamaCare
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/10/09/more-than-dozen-states-plan-to-cancel-health-care-policies-not-in-compliance/?intcmp=latestnews
More than a dozen states plan to cancel health care policies not in compliance with ObamaCare in the coming weeks, affecting thousands of people just before the midterm elections.

"It looks like several hundred thousand people across the country will receive notices in the coming days and weeks," said Jim Capretta of the Ethics and Public Policy Center.

The policies are being canceled because states that initially granted a reprieve at the request of President Obama are no longer willing to do so.

In coming weeks, 13 states and the District of Columbia plan to cancel such policies, which generally fall out of compliance with the Affordable Care Act because they don’t offer the level of coverage the law requires.

Virginia will be hardest hit, with 250,000 policies expected to be canceled.

And because federal law requires a 60-day notice of any plan changes, voters will be notified no later than November 1, right before the Nov. 4 midterms.

Expected insurance cancellations latest fuel in Va. race between Warner, Gillespie
Washington Post   By Laura Vozzella  10-10-2014
http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/virginia-politics/possible-health-care-policy-cancelations-roil-senate-race-between-gillespie-warner/2014/09/12/188b0f7e-3a9f-11e4-bdfb-de4104544a37_story.html

RICHMOND — Health-insurance plans of as many as 250,000 Virginians will be canceled in January because the policies do not meet the standards set by the Affordable Care Act, a development that Republican Ed Gillespie hopes will boost his prospects as he tries to unseat Sen. Mark R. Warner.

The high number of potential cancellations, predicted this week at a meeting of the Virginia Health Insurance Reform Commission, instantly became fodder in the Senate race. Gillespie has made Warner’s support for the ACA the central theme in his uphill battle against the incumbent Democrat, a former governor who had a 22-point lead over the Republican in a recent poll.

Gillespie, a former Republican National Committee chairman and lobbyist, rolled out a series of statements, headlining one of them “250,000 broken promises.” His campaign also touted the number as it unveiled a TV ad with video of Warner promising in 2009 that he would not support a health-care law that takes away policies that people already had and liked.

“Because Mark Warner worked to pass Obamacare, 250,000 Virginians are losing the health insurance they liked, with thousands getting hit with huge out-of-pocket cost increases while unable to see the doctors they trust,” Gillespie said in a prepared statement.

The Puckett Flypaper Snags Mark Warner

Roanoke Times, 10-11-2014, Pg 1, 7: Warner denies offer to Puckett
-
What a totally misleading RT headline!  The article does indeed quote the following offer to Puckett:
-
On June 6, three days before the state senator’s (Puckett) resignation became official, Warner called Puckett’s son, Joseph, and discussed an appointment to the federal bench as well as a potential corporate position of Martha Puckett Ketron.
-
Based on the newly found Democrat code of ethics, based on the Gov. McDonnell trial, Governor McAuliffe sigged US-AG Holder onto south side Delegate Terry G. Kilgore for allegedly offering a Tobacco Commission job to a Virginia Democrat Senator Puckett, which would result in the Republicans taking control of the State Senate.
“McAuliffe called Puckett ‘despicable’ for seeming to trade his Senate seat for job prospects.”
-
Now it appears that Gov. McAuliffe is Caught-up In The Malfeasance Backwash through recorded messages from his chief-of-staff offering jobs and judgeships to Puckett.
Just how ‘despicable’ is that?
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2014/10/gov-mcauliffe-caught-up-in-malfeasance.html
-
And now our esteemed US Senator Mark Warner (now running for reelection)
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2014/09/lte-ed-gillespie-will-make-us-proud.html
has been accused of offering jobs to Puckett.
Just how ‘despicable’ is that?
-
We can all be assured that Obama's AG Holder will not allow the FBI to harrass and charge McAuliffe, his chief-of-staff or Sen. Warner with any wrongdoing!
Terry Kilgore, on the other hand, had better have a good lawyer and lots of money for his defense of such an alleged 'despicable' act.
-
-
Editorial note: calling the Puckett affair a “tar baby” would be historically and literarily appropriate – but – it appears we’re not allowed to use that term any longer?  Something about being PIC.   What to do with the Uncle Remus stories now?

Kerry: Don’t Sweat The Slaughter, Focus On The Strategy

-
Roanoke Times, 10-9-2014, Pg 3: John Heinz Kerry at news conference in DC on ISIS and Kobani
-
The US Secretary of State, John Kerry, made incredibly gross and callous remarks about the imminent slaughter of innocent people in Kobani.
It’s difficult to comprehend any person, official or not, making these remarks; and of course the Pravda Media didn’t bat an eye.
-
“As horrific as it is to watch in real time what’s happening in Kobani, it’s also important to remember, that you have to step back and understand the strategic objective.”  Kerry to a news conference in Washington.
-
All this flies in the face of the Obama-Kerry malfeasance in handling the ISIS and Syrian issues two years ago and their total bungling now!
But not to worry one’s self about being slaughtered, after all one has to focus on the strategic objective!
-
And to reflect that this is the same Jerk who testified to Congress about the malfeasance in Viet Nam.

Obama: ISIS Problem Because of Bush And The Turks And Others

-
White House reportedly frustrated with Turkish inaction against ISIS
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/10/08/white-house-frustration-with-turkish-inaction-against-isis-reportedly-growing/

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said the U.S.-led coalition's air campaign launched last month would not be enough to halt the Islamic State group's advance.

"Kobani is about to fall," Erdogan told Syrian refugees in the Turkish border town of Gaziantep, according to The Associated Press. The Turkish president called for greater cooperation with the Syrian opposition, which is fighting both the extremists and forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad.

"We asked for three things: one, for a no-fly zone to be created; two, for a secure zone parallel to the region to be declared; and for the moderate opposition in Syria and Iraq to be trained and equipped."
-
-
Biden has been helping Obama fix the ISIS problem by alienating major players in the Middle East that Obama claims will be key part of “not our boots on the ground”.

No comment from Obama about Biden’s so called help

Biden issues second apology of weekend, after offending US allies in fight to destroy Islamic State


Vice President Biden on Sunday issued his second apology of the weekend for remarks that offended allies that the U.S. needs in the fight to destroy the Islamic State.

Biden apologized by phone Sunday to Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, saying he never meant to imply that his country was supporting Al Qaeda fighters in Syria. Al Nahyan is also the deputy supreme commander of the United Arab Emirates’ armed forces.

Biden made the remarks at a speech Thursday, suggesting U.S. allies including Turkey, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates had funded and armed extremist groups linked to Al Qaeda. The UAE was exasperated and requested a formal clarification.

Leon Panetta, Obama’s former Defense and CIA Chief is not blaming Bush or the Turks but lays this mess directly in Obama’s lap.

Panetta: Obama needs to 'develop the will to get into the ring and fight' ISIS
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/10/08/panetta-obama-needs-to-develop-will-to-get-into-ring-and-fight-isis/

Former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta told Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly Tuesday there is no question the Obama administration’s decision to not maintain a presence in Iraq was a mistake, and President Obama needs to “develop the will to get into the ring and fight” against the Islamic State.

Panetta, who served in the Obama administration for four years, said on “The O’Reilly Factor” that he, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the director of the CIA made a “very strong case” for keeping at least 10,000 troops in Iraq at the end of the war.

Gov. McAuliffe Caught-up In The Malfeasance Backwash

-
New News: KUDOs to the Roanoke Times Editor for addressing this situation in a very fair and balanced way:  McAuliffe fire your chief-of-staff and call in the FBI.

Roanoke Times, 10-3-2014, Pg 1,5: McAuliffe aide’s call to Puckett floated job.
-
A few weeks ago McAuliffe, the Virginia Democrats and their friends in the Liberal Media were all aglow with joy and happiness.  They were on the blood trail of Republican Delegate  Terry G. Kilgore (R-Scott), who is also the chairman of the Tobacco Commission.
Allegedly, Kilgore offered a Tobacco Commission job to a Virginia Democrat Senator Puckett, which would result in the Republicans taking control of the State Senate.
“McAuliffe called Puckett ‘despicable’ for seeming to trade his Senate seat for job prospects.”
-
The allegations blossomed into a full Democrat political and legal assault not just on Kilgore but also on the Tobacco Commission itself with the potential of taking over control and obtaining a new source of lots of money for McAuliffe’s initiatives.
-
Stop the music!  Someone just threw a feces into McAuliffe’s punch bowl!
Turns out McAuliffe’s chief-of-staff offered Puckett the prospect of his daughter getting a top state job if he stayed and supported McAuliffe’s initiatives!
-
Talk about one of the best examples of political HYPOCRISY in Virginia history!
-
The question now is: will the media coverage and the legal investigation of the Governor and his chief-of-staff be as visible and intense as the investigation of Kilgore?  Somehow, I doubt that’s going to happen.
-
However, we have to give the Roanoke Times their due.  They did put the story on the front page with BIG type.

When Prosecutors Become Persecutors

-
Roanoke Times, 10-2-2014, Pg 3: Former Rep. DeLay won’t go to prison.
-
What an obscene tiny heading back on Pg 3!!!  This isn’t a byline, this is a very big deal of yet another Political Persecution!
-
Tom DeLay, Texas Congressman, was falsely charged in 2005 with money laundering charges by an out of control Democrat Prosecutors.
The question now is what action will be taken to punish these prosecutors for using the criminal justice system for political malfeasance?  Answer: Nothing!
-
This same process appears to be going on relative to current Texas Governor Rick Perry. 
-
Then there’s the malfeasance of federal prosecutors in the persecution of Sen. Ted Stevens R-Alaska for clearly political purposes to get a Democrat elected.
The prosecutors were successful in their political goals. Later it was clearly demonstrated that the prosecutors hid evidence and subverted the trial.

In Virginia we have the prosecution of Gov. McDonnell and his wife.
Five ex-VA-AGs (3 Democrats and 2 Republicans) petitioned the Court to drop the charges because the items being alleged are not illegal acts!

If overturned on appeal, which is very likely, this will be yet another example of political prosecution.

One of the most egregious examples of rogue prosecution was the Persecution of the  Lacrosse  Team at Duke University in which the Prosecutor had DNA from every member of the team showing that none of them abused a party-stripper, yet he continued to persecute them.

At what point are prosecutors who become persecutors held accountable for their actions?
