Alleged Pennsylvania Cop Killer Eric Frein Apprehended

Yessir, they got their man by God.

It took a month of terrorizing the local population, locking down entire towns,enforcing curfews, spent millions of dollars, used remote robotic armored vehicles, unmanned drones, all night long helicopter traffic and used over a thousand police officers to do it but they got their man.

Guess who gets to pay for all that?

Those same terrorized citizens.

Wait until they get the bill for all that overtime.....

IT"S THE TENTH AMENDMENT DUDE!!!

Jayzus!

I just read this article
by some dude going on about why the Feds can't order a nation wide standard for treating things like this Ebola quarantine deal like the one that Cuomo and Christie back tracked on because the Whitehouse suggested it was too harsh.

The guy seemingly goes out of his freakin' way to hint at it but never quiiiiite says why the Feds have their hands tied.
It's a long article too.
He just says that the Framers of the Constitution designed it that way, yadda yadda yadda, Federalist system, blah blah.

Dude, really?
Could you not like, GOOGLE THE SUBJECT? Ever heard of Wikipedia?


The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

Dayum.

It's not like seven out of ten people under forty have no clue what is in the Constitution anymore anyway.
That number goes down to almost zero the younger they are.

There are full grown adults that were born and educated here that can't even name the three branches of government for fucks sake!

It makes me want to scream when I see crap like this.

If you can muster enough words blathering on about why Obama can't just decree quarantine standards for the whole country like he would love to do, at least explain why in plain enough language that the average moron in this country can understand.

It would be the right thing to do.

Some People Are Born With It, Were You?

There are now so many laws on the books in this country that not one person on this earth could tell you how many there actually are and new ones are being passed every year.

You can't walk down the sidewalk without breaking some kind of law anymore.

People are conditioned from an early age not to break the rules and there are those who take great pleasure in reinforcing this with violence.These people wear uniforms generally.

Age and sex are no barrier,they will break bones, maim and even kill children if they are in the wrong place at the right time.
All with the full backing and blanket immunity of the Police State.

Go read what Sam K. is saying, you need to condition yourself to start breaking these unnecessary rules and laws in order to get back what they have taken, your birth rights as free people with unalienable rights of liberty.

This is not a game, this is the core of what America is supposed to be and what has been stolen from you, one ridiculous law at a time.

Here is the money shot, you need to go read the whole thing to get the full gist of what we are talking about.

Face this fact: Evil men have criminalized Liberty.

You can not live at Liberty in America today without becoming a criminal.

You will never know Liberty in America without dismissing many laws, committing many felonies, and being willing to physically fight the men who mean to stand between you and your Creator.

You'd better begin ramping up.

You'd better begin to Click-On.

Every day. Every single day you must become harder, smarter, less affected by the taunt of Criminal! You must become immune to the stigma of their labels. You must take more responsibility for your own Liberty, for it is your Obligation to defend your Creator and His gifts to you.

You must break their rules.

Or you will remain upon your knees, licking the hands that feed you.

That is not a life worth living.

Never before has been being called an Outlaw been more of a badge of honor when it comes to stomping out tyranny.

Be smart about it, you don't just run out and be stupid, they will cut you down before you know what happened.

There is an art to being an Outlaw, there is a certain nuance true Outlaws are born with.
Knowing what they can get away with and when.
It's not something easily articulated.
It is, however, easily recognized in others, especially if you are one blessed with the Outlaw gene.

You can still be an Outlaw and have a strict code of ethics, the law breaking is aimed at those who artificially restrict your liberty and not the population in general.


There is an awakening happening in this country finally, those who would be your masters have overstepped their authority too many times and there are too many innocent victims out there now.
That is going to be their undoing, hurting the innocent. The innocent have relatives and kin.
Some of those kinfolk have seen enough.

Some of those kinfolk have had enough.

Those kinfolk are talking to each other.

Ever day you see another story about police abuse in this country.
Now you are starting to see stories here and there of those kinfolk hunting police and stories about police officers being killed.

Sam Kerodin speaks of patterns in his piece.

Start noticing some of the pieces are falling into place right in front of your eyes,every single day now.

The Revolution is being waged as you read this, that is what those pieces represent.

Here's to a thumb in the eye of tyranny and a great big Fuck You to those who would try to keep you trembling in fear of your own shadow.
That is the only way they are going to win and I see a losing strategy.

This Is Why We Have The Death Penalty

Hanging is too good for this piece of shit.


Houston man raped teen, toddler, infected them with HIV, police say

 

 

A registered sex offender in Houston is charged with raping a 14-year-old girl and a 2-year-old girl and infecting them with HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases.
The 33-year-old man was charged this week with super-aggravated sexual assault of a child and sexual assault of a child. Houston police say he raped his ex-girlfriend's teenage daughter and his infant niece.
The investigation began in 2013 when the younger child was brought to the Texas Medical Center. Both victims were infected with herpes and doctors had to preform reconstructive surgery on the younger child.
The suspect was sentenced to four years in prison in 2004 after sexually assaulting a different child.
The Associated Press isn't naming the man to protect the identities of the children.

 



Stick his ass up against a wall and exterminate the vermin.
What he did is beyond redemption and he would do it again if given the chance.

Remember, You Shouldn't Worry If You Have Nothing To Hide

I seriously want to punch the jackass who said that first.

Someone somewhere in our government long ago came to the conclusion that there are no adults with critical thinking capabilities left in this country so everyone must obviously be treated like a fucking three year old and that is infuriating.

I know I really started noticing this phenomena under the Bush administration, especially right after 9/11 when the Dept. of Homeland Security was still Dick Cheney's wet dream.

Ever since then it has come down to the fact that our government does whatever it damn well pleases, without even asking forgiveness instead of permission after it gets it's hand slammed in the cookie jar of Constitutional propriety.

Whenever confronted with these abuses, they will look you right in the eye with all the earnestness of a first grader who has learned to lie and has gotten away with it, all the while wiping their muddy feet on the Fourth Amendment right in front of you and swear it's for your own good.

The Obama administration has turned this into an art form.

Chilling free speech: Fed's passion to monitor us has become insatiable






Judge Andrew P. Napolitano

By Judge Andrew P. Napolitano
Published October 23, 2014


Earlier this week, the federal government’s National Science Foundation, an entity created to encourage the study of science -- encouragement that it achieves by awarding grants to scholars and universities -- announced that it had awarded a grant to study what people say about themselves and others in social media.

The NSF dubbed the project Truthy, a reference to comedian Stephen Colbert’s invention and hilarious use of the word “truthiness.”

The reference to Colbert is cute, and he is a very funny guy, but when the feds get into the business of monitoring speech, it is surely no joke; it is a nightmare. It is part of the Obama administration’s persistent efforts to monitor communication and scrutinize the expressions of opinions it hates and fears.

All presidents push the envelope when it comes to exercising their constitutional powers. But we never before have seen in modern times a president like the present one.

We already know the National Security Agency has the digital versions of all telephone conversations and emails sent to, from or within the U.S. since 2005. Edward Snowden's revelations of all this are credible and substantiated, and the government’s denials are weak and unavailing -- so weak and unavailing that many NSA agents disbelieve them.

But the government’s unbridled passion to monitor us has become insatiable. Just two months ago, the Federal Communications Commission, which licenses broadcasters, threatened to place federal agents in cable television newsrooms so they can see how stories are generated and produced. The FCC doesn’t even regulate cable, yet it threatened to enhance its own authority by monitoring cable companies from the inside.

What’s going on here?

What’s going on here, and has been going on since President Obama took office in January 2009, is a government with little or no fidelity to basic constitutional norms. There is no defense under the Constitution to any aspect of the government's -- federal, state, regional, local or hybrid; or any entity owned or controlled by any government; or any entity that exercises the government’s coercive powers or spends or receives its money -- monitoring the expressive behavior of anyone in the U.S., not in a newsroom, on social media or anywhere else.


You can read the rest here.

Blackwater guards found guilty in Iraq shootings

I'll admit this surprises me, Blackwater, or whatever they are calling themselves these days, pretty much had unlimited funds to throw at lawyers and high powered ones at that.


Four former Blackwater security guards were found guilty Wednesday in the 2007 shootings of more than 30 Iraqis in Baghdad, and a federal judge ordered them immediately to jail.

In an overwhelming victory for prosecutors, a jury found Nicholas Slatten guilty of first-degree murder. The three other guards -- Paul Slough, Evan Liberty and Dustin Heard -- were found guilty of multiple counts of voluntary manslaughter, attempted manslaughter and gun charges.

The four men had been charged with a combined 33 counts in the shootings and the jury was able to reach a verdict on all of them, with the exception of three charges against Heard. The prosecution agreed to drop those charges.

The outcome after a summerlong trial and weeks of jury deliberation stunned the defense.

David Schertler, a lawyer for Heard, said "the verdict is wrong, it's incomprehensible. We're devastated. We're going to fight it every step of the way. We still think we're going to win."

The shootings on Sept. 16, 2007, caused an international uproar over the role of defense contractors in urban warfare.

The State Department hired Blackwater to protect American diplomats in Baghdad, the Iraqi capital, and elsewhere in the country. Blackwater convoys of four heavily armored vehicles operated in risky environments where car bombs and attacks by insurgents were common.

Slatten was charged with first-degree murder; the others were charged with voluntary manslaughter, attempted manslaughter and gun charges.

The case was mired in legal battles for years, making it uncertain whether the defendants would ever be tried.


Sure there will be appeals from now until no one even remembers who these guys are or what happened but in the mean time they are cooling their heels in the slammer.

Blackwater changed their name after this all came out but they are still out there, hired thugs and mercenaries with more equipment and firepower than some countries armies.

We were paying for all that because our government hired these guys.

Fellow Washingtonians; Spread The Word, Vote NO On I -594!

There are anti gun citizens with deep pockets literally trying to purchase your 2nd Amendment rights with false advertising and by sponsoring Initiative I-594. When even Law Enforcement officers think this is a bad idea it should give everyone cause for concern.
Watch this video and then spread the word.



I will tell you right now that I will consider this null and void the second it passes, if it does.

PLEASE tell everyone you know that lives in the State of Washington to fiercely protect what few rights we have left and at the same time let non residents with deep pockets and an agenda know that we here don't want or need them meddling in our business.

There Is An Unpleasant Odor Associated With It Also


That would be the odor of people shitting their pants,look at the size of this nasty little fucker!!


Holy crap!

Known as the South American Goliath birdeater (Theraphosa blondi), the colossal arachnid is the world's largest spider, according to Guinness World Records. Itsleg span can reach up to a foot (30 centimeters), or about the size of "a child's forearm," with a body the size of "a large fist," Naskrecki told Live Science. And the spider can weigh more than 6 oz. (170 grams) — about as much as a young puppy, the scientist wrote on his blog. [See Photos of the Goliath Birdeater Spider]

When Naskrecki approached the imposing creature in the rainforest, it would rub its hind legs against its abdomen. At first, the scientist thought the behavior was "cute," he said, but then he realized the spider was sending out a cloud of hairs with microscopic barbs on them. When these hairs get in the eyes or other mucous membranes, they are "extremely painful and itchy," and can stay there for days, he said. [Creepy-Crawly Gallery: See Spooky Photos of Spiders]

But its prickly hairs aren't the birdeater's only line of defense; it also sports a pair of 2-inch-long (5 centimeters) fangs. Although the spider's bite is venomous, it's not deadly to humans. But it would still be extremely painful, "like driving a nail through your hand," Naskrecki said.

And the eight-legged beast has a third defense mechanism up its hairy sleeve. The hairs on the front of the spider's body have tiny hooks and barbs that make a hissing sound when they rub against each other, "sort of like pulling Velcro apart," Naskrecki said.

Yet despite all that, the spider doesn't pose a threat to humans. Even if it bites you, "a chicken can probably do more damage

Fuck that noise.
My wife and my Mother would both have heart attacks if they ever saw something like this.
I'm thinking flame thrower.
Can't be too careful.

Obama To Name Former Biden Chief of Staff to "Ebola Czar" Post

A job we used to have a Surgeon General for.
We have an interim SG now, a real, you know, like MEDICAL DOCTOR type guy!

Obama to name former Biden aide as 'czar' to oversee Ebola crisis

 

President Obama will name former vice presidential chief of staff Ron Klain as Ebola "czar" to coordinate the administration’s response to the disease, part of a White House effort to calm fears and quiet criticism about the government’s ability to stop its spread.
Klain, a longtime Democratic political operative, is trusted within the White House as a smart political crisis manager and administrator with experience coordinating government bureaucracy.

The president is in need of such experience. Obama has been under pressure to take more dramatic action as worries about the spread of Ebola have grown -- and spilled into campaign season politics.

 



So I'm going to guess this political appointee position is for organizational purposes because being a Chief of Staff at one point would be helpful experience for such a task.

The obvious is answer to why this has been deemed necessary can be summed up by the last line of the article above, politics.

 He cares more about his motherfucking political image than he does about getting serious about doing something serious to stop the spread of this disease.

Why the Surgeon General hasn't been out front on this apparently will remain a mystery, much like why they haven't gotten their shit together yet in the face of this known pandemic being spread around like a dose of the clap at a two bit whore house.

It never ceases to amaze me that our government can listen to a conversation from a quarter mile away, can track your every movement using your cell phone and can drop a 500 hundred pound bomb on the head of a pin from half a world away but can't communicate with other government agencies to coordinate what should be a national effort to stop the spread of a disease they knew was coming months ago.

The word clusterfuck comes to mind.

The official response to all this is to put some guy in charge of a fact finding mission basically, instead of getting serious about it and shutting down all entry into this country from known carrier nation members, quarrantining the shit out of anyone who has already arrived and getting the head of the CDC, the Surgeon General and the top medical experts in one room to come up with a way to contain the people already infected so they quit spreading the fucking shit around and pull the collective heads of the top hospitals in the country out of their collective asses to get ready to treat this as is serious as it really is.

There used to be people in this country who knew how to get shit done.
Now we have a bunch of political hacks with a fucking title and who can't buy a clue.

USS Constitution Headed To Dry Dock For Restoration

They need to take the parchment it was named after with it and restore that too.


USS Constitution takes final trip in Boston Harbor

 

Old Ironsides is taking one last spin in Boston Harbor before it heads to dry dock for a three-year restoration project.
The USS Constitution, the world's oldest commissioned warship still afloat, is set to depart from its berth at the Charlestown Navy Yard with about 500 specially-invited guests Friday morning.
The ship will give a 21-gun salute off Fort Independence on Castle Island, one of the oldest fortified sites in the country, as well as a 17-gun salute at the Coast Guard's Boston base.
After Friday's trip, the ship will undergo dry-dock preparations, including removal of its upper masts and offloading of the ship's long guns. The three-mast frigate still will be open for public tours Thursday through Sunday, starting Oct. 20. It officially enters dry dock in March 2015.
During the restoration, workers are expected to re-copper the ship's hull, replace worn riggings, change out old planks on the gun and berth decks and make general repairs to the stern, bow and captain's cabin. The ship is expected to be back in the water by 2017. By spring or summer 2018 it should return to its familiar spot on Pier 1 at the Navy Yard.
Built in Boston and launched in October 1797, the USS Constitution was commissioned by the U.S. Navy following the Revolutionary War in order to protect American merchant ships off the northern coast of Africa.

Keep Your Eyes and Ears Open

Our government has an unwritten policy of pulling shit while everyone's attention is elsewhere and this Ebola business is the perfect kind of cover they are always looking for.

I'm just sayin' that this is exactly the kind of diversion they can't buy.

Stay alert.

2nd Healthcare Worker Flew Commercially After Exposure, Airplane Made 5 More Flights

Ebola has now been spread across the entire country folks.
This is a National Disaster in the making.


One of two nurses at a Dallas hospital who tested positive for Ebola should not have flown on a commercial airline and is being sent to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta for treatment, officials said Wednesday.

The nurse, who had treated Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan, flew Frontier Airlines flight 1143 from Cleveland arriving Monday night in Dallas, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The woman reported symptoms of Ebola on Tuesday morning and was placed in isolation.

“She should not have traveled on a commercial airline,”
CDC Director Tom Frieden told reporters during a news briefing. The nurse was among a group of about 76 healthcare workers being monitored for symptoms of Ebola.

Frieden said the agency would work to make sure no other healthcare workers involved in Duncan’s treatment would be traveling.
The nurse was identified as Amber Vinson, working at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital, where Ebola patient Duncan was treated and died.

The Frontier Airlines jet that carried a Dallas healthcare worker diagnosed with Ebola made five additional flights after her trip before it was taken out of service, according to a flight-monitoring website.

Denver-based Frontier said in a statement that it grounded the plane immediately after the carrier was notified late Tuesday night by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention about the Ebola patient.

Flight 1143, on which the woman flew from Cleveland to Dallas/Fort Worth, was the last trip of the day Monday for the Airbus A320. But Tuesday morning the plane was flown back to Cleveland and then to Fort Lauderdale, Fla., back to Cleveland and then to Atlanta and finally back to Cleveland again, according to Daniel Baker, chief executive of the flight-monitoring site Flightaware.com.

He said his data did not include any passenger manifests, so he could not tell how many total passengers flew on the plane Tuesday.


He said his data did not include any passenger manifests, so he could not tell how many total passengers flew on the plane Tuesday.



The airline said it is working with the CDC to contact all 132 passengers on the Monday flight that carried the Ebola patient.

Breaking, 2nd Healthcare Worker Confirmed With Ebola in Texas

Start counting how many people have been exposed to this shit now, you will have to take your socks off, I guarantee you ran out of fingers last week.
Hint, it's in the HUNDREDS by now.

Breaking news

Second Texas healthcare worker tests positive for Ebola

Los Angeles Times | October 15, 2014 | 2:43 AM
The healthcare worker, who was not identified, reported a fever on Tuesday and was immediately placed in isolation at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital, the same hospital where Liberian Thomas Eric Duncan died of Ebola, according to a Texas Department of State Health Services statement online.

The patient was interviewed by health officials to identify any contacts or potential exposures and plans to monitor those people.



Health officials have confirmed the worker was among those who took care of Thomas Eric Duncan after he was diagnosed with Ebola. Nina Pham, a 26-year-old registered nurse, contracted Ebola while treating Duncan and is currently in isolation at the hospital, where nurses have described having flimsy protective gear and no proper training from hospital administration in handling such a patient.

The preliminary Ebola test was run late Tuesday at the state public health laboratory in Austin, and results were received at about midnight.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta will conduct confirmatory testing.

What Happened To Adapt And Overcome?

For fucks sake I am getting tired of this bullshit already.


Pentagon calls climate change a matter of ‘national security’


 

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel on Monday described climate change as a national security threat -- at a time when the U.S. military is battling the Islamic State in the Mideast, responding to the Ebola crisis in West Africa, and monitoring tensions between Ukraine and Russia.
The Defense secretary addressed the issue during a speech in Peru, as the Pentagon released a comprehensive report on the "national security" challenges posed by rising global temperatures and "extreme weather events."
Hagel described climate change as a "threat multiplier," saying it "has the potential to exacerbate many of the challenges we already confront today -- from infectious disease to armed insurgencies -- and to produce new challenges in the future."
The Pentagon's new report maps out four areas of climate change deemed the most threatening to the U.S. military -- rising global temperatures, changing precipitation patterns, more extreme weather and rising sea levels. And it warns about the impact they could have on food and water supplies, the environment and American security itself.
"Our militaries' readiness could be tested, and our capabilities could be stressed," Hagel said, addressing a conference of military leaders.

 



I think if I was a Canadian I would start worrying about now.

These hegemonic fuckers would have no problem moving the border North if they thought they could get away with it, tomorrow.

U.S. Army Crying Poor Well In Advance Of Projected Funding Cuts

Right on schedule I'd say.

It never fails to amaze me the fucking balls on these guys.

They don't even bat an eye when billions of dollars worth of equipment gets scrapped or left behind in countries we have been mucking around in but a couple years ahead of some projected budget cuts they are out in front of Congress crying that the roof is leaking and they can't feed the kids.

Cry me a river bitches, we are all broke.

I have an idea.
Why don't you fucking people quit giving your toys to the local podunk police departments around the country and use them against that bunch of camel jockeys you keep fucking around with?

U.S. Army says it faces huge equipment, training risks with budget cuts



By Andrea Shalal

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Army warned on Monday that mandatory budget cuts due to resume in fiscal 2016 would be devastating to a service that is already facing huge risks as it tries to keep forces ready for battle, replace aging equipment and respond to crises around the world.

"We have to have a national security debate ... because there is too much going on," U.S. Army Chief of Staff General Ray Odierno told reporters at the annual Association of the U.S. Army (AUSA) conference.

Odierno said the Army had agreed to further reduce the size of its active force to 450,000 troops from an earlier goal of 490,000 to comply with mandatory budget cuts known as sequestration, but he questioned if even the original target would allow the Army to respond as needed around the globe.

It Couldn't Possibly Be Wirecutter, Right?

Nah, couldn't be...



California police field reports of creepy clowns






(Reuters) - Reports of creepy clowns carrying knives and other weapons have been scaring people in the California city of Bakersfield for the past week, police said on Sunday.
In the latest incident, a person telephoned the Bakersfield Police Department on Saturday night, reporting a clown armed with a firearm, said watch commander Lieutenant Jason Matson.
"We've been having sightings all over the city," Matson said. "They range from anywhere from a guy carrying a gun to a guy carrying a knife running up to houses."



The tats are wrong.......
LOL!

OOOPSIE! Texas Hospital Worker Infected With Ebola

I'll give you one guess which town .

Article straight from the LA Times.

Texas hospital worker tests positive for Ebola

 

 

A healthcare worker at a Texas hospital that cared for a patient with the Ebola virus has tested positive for the disease in what is believed to be the first U.S. transmission of the deadly virus, authorities said Sunday.
Officials at the Texas Department of State Health Services said “preliminary” test results confirmed the presence of the virus in a healthcare worker at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital, where a Nigerian patient, Thomas E. Duncan, died last week.
“We knew a second case could be a reality, and we’ve been preparing for this possibility,” David Lakey, state health department commissioner, said in a statement.
“We are broadening our team in Dallas and working with extreme diligence to prevent further spread,” he said.
The unidentified healthcare worker reported a low-grade fever Friday night and was immediately isolated and referred for testing, officials said.
The preliminary test result was confirmed late Saturday.
Health officials said they are now in the process of identifying those who may have had contact with the healthcare worker, and they will be monitored depending on how much exposure they may have had.

You gotta know someones asshole slammed shut when they saw the results of that test.

So it begins.......

Bring On Cheaper Bacon!

As you well know, grocery prices have been incrementally going up for years and it's no better now than last year.
To make matters worse, there has been an ongoing deadly virus outbreak that pig farmers have been battling that has killed millions of little pigs over the last couple of years.
One follows the other and the price of pork has reflected those losses.
It is being reported that farmers have finally turned the corner and gotten the upper hand in controlling the outbreak and the best news is that the price of pork may be coming back down soon.

Mmmmmhmm, a BLT sounds pretty damn good right now!

Farmers Get Piglet Virus under Control Which May Mean Lower Pork Prices






Over the last year, a virus in the pig community has run rampant killing millions of baby pigs while causing pork prices to rise considerably. Warmer weather and efforts from pork farmers to better sterilize their operations have helped to decrease the incidence of the virus itself, and it appears the worst of the crisis is over....

Isn't baby bacon cute?

Antarctic sea ice at ALL TIME RECORD HIGH: 'We have more to learn' - scientist




Sea ice surrounding the Antarctic continent reached its maximum extent on September 22 at 20.11 million square kilometers (7.76 million square miles). This is 1.54 million square kilometers (595,000 square miles) above the 1981 to 2010 average extent, which is nearly four standard deviations above average. Antarctic sea ice averaged 20.0 million square kilometers (7.72 million square miles) for the month of September. This new record extent follows consecutive record winter maximum extents in 2012 and 2013. The reasons for this recent rapid growth are not clear. Sea ice in Antarctica has remained at satellite-era record high daily levels for most of 2014.


The first thing they need to learn is that their computer model predictions are off considerably.

Of course there has never been a politician that ever let something like a fact get in the way of their agenda.

Dallas Ebola Patient Goes Tits Up

This isn't especially encouraging news.


Thomas Eric Duncan, first Ebola patient diagnosed in U.S., dies 

 


Thomas Eric Duncan, the first Ebola patient diagnosed in the United States, died Wednesday more than a week after he was hospitalized in Dallas, officials announced.
Duncan, 42, had become a human face of Ebola for most Americans who were unaware of the disease that has ravaged parts of West Africa and killed more than 3,400 people there.
“It is with profound sadness and heartfelt disappointment that we must inform you of the death of Thomas Eric Duncan this morning at 7:51 a.m.,” Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas said in a statement.
The case prompted fear in Dallas and touched off an ambitious public health response at home and abroad to deal with Ebola.
Duncan left Liberia on Sept. 19 to visit Louise Troh, with whom he was reconciling and planned to marry in Dallas. They were planning to live as a family with their son.
“His suffering is over," Troh said in a statement. "My family is in deep sadness and grief, but we leave him in the hands of God. Our deepest sympathies go out to his father and family in Liberia and here in America.”
“I trust a thorough examination will take place regarding all aspects of his care,” she said. “I am now dealing with the sorrow and anger that his son was not able to see him before he died. This will take some time, but in the end, I believe in a merciful God.”
Duncan told his fiancee the day he was diagnosed last week that he regretted exposing her to the deadly virus and had he known he was carrying Ebola, he would have “preferred to stay in Liberia and died than bring this to you,” Saymendy Lloyd, a close friend of Troh said on Wednesday.

“He apologized to Louise the day they told him what he had,” Lloyd said. “He told her, ‘I’m so sorry all of this is happening. . . . I would not put the love of my life in danger.’”



 



And It's Only Wednesday

Dayum, it's going to be a long week.

No way, The Banks Have Been Manipulating Curreny Exchanges? I Can't Believe That.

Said no one ,ever.

Justice Department to reportedly charge banks, individuals over currency manipulation




The Justice Department is planning to investigate and charge several of the world's largest banks with crimes connected to the manipulation of currency exchanges, according to a published report.

According to The New York Times, federal prosecutors are planning to indict individual bank employees for currency manipulation, using instant messages as evidence. That is in contrast to recent investigations into securities-backed mortgage trading, which ended in multi-million dollar fines being paid by the banks themselves.

The Times reports that approximately a dozen financial institutions under investigation, including Deutsche Bank, Citigroup, JP Morgan Chase, Barclays, and UBS. Charges are expected to be filed against at least one bank before the end of the year, with several expected to plead guilty.

The Times also reports that any individuals charged in connection with currency manipulation would likely be traders and their immediate superiors, as opposed to chief executives of firms.


If this farcical 3 ring circus act wasn't so pitiful it would be comical.
You want to get serious about this bullshit?
Audit every financial institution on the planet clear down to their toilet paper purchases and then start throwing entire company boards in jail all at once, then start working your way DOWN, instead of starting at the bottom with the petty actors and working up.

These people are well aware of what is going on on their watch because if they weren't, the rate of mass firings would be making the headlines instead of this.

How About We Just Call It THIN SKINNED IDIOTS DAY And Be Done With It?

Of all of the problems facing the people of this country, Seattle has decided it needs to be the PC Capitol of the world and yet still manages to piss off somebody while doing it.

This Political Correctness horseshit has gotten completely the fuck out of hand if you ask me.

If you can make sense of the following then you need to gut check yourself as you might have some latent PC tendencies that need to be addressed because this shit could be fixed so simply a third grader could figure it out, but no.
The entire Seattle City Council had to get involved to fuck this up so badly.


Columbus Day will now be Indigenous Peoples' Day in Seattle




SEATTLE – The Seattle City Council is replacing Columbus Day with Indigenous Peoples' Day in the city.

The resolution that passed unanimously Monday celebrates the contributions and culture of Native Americans and the indigenous community in Seattle on the second Monday in October, the same day as the federally recognized Columbus Day.

Tribal members and other supporters say the move recognizes the rich history of people who have inhabited the area for centuries.

"This action will allow us to bring into current present day our valuable and rich history, and it's there for future generations to learn," said Fawn Sharp, president of the Quinault Indian Nation on the Olympic Peninsula, who is also president of the Affiliated Tribes of Northwest Indians.

"Nobody discovered Seattle, Washington," she said to a round of applause.

Several Italian-Americans and others objected to the change, saying Indigenous Peoples' Day honors one group while disregarding the Italian heritage of others.

Columbus Day is a federal holiday that commemorates the arrival of Christopher Columbus, who was Italian, in the Americas on Oct. 12, 1492. It's not a legal state holiday in Washington.

"We don't argue with the idea of Indigenous Peoples' Day. We do have a big problem of it coming at the expense of what essentially is Italian Heritage Day," said Ralph Fascitelli, an Italian-American who lives in Seattle, speaking outside the meeting.

"This is a big insult to those of us of Italian heritage. We feel disrespected," Fascitelli said. He added, "America wouldn't be America without Christopher Columbus."

Seattle Mayor Ed Murray is expected to sign the resolution Oct. 13, his spokesman Jason Kelly said.

The Bellingham City Council also is concerned that Columbus Day offends some Native Americans. It will consider an ordinance Oct. 13 to recognize the second Monday in October as Coast Salish Day.

The Seattle School Board decided last week to have its schools observe Indigenous Peoples' Day on the same day as Columbus Day. Earlier this year, Minneapolis also decided to designate that day as Indigenous Peoples' Day. South Dakota, meanwhile, celebrates Native American Day.

Seattle council member Bruce Harrell said he understood the concerns from people in the Italian-American community, but he said, "I make no excuses for this legislation." He said he co-sponsored the resolution because he believes the city won't be successful in its social programs and outreach until "we fully recognize the evils of our past."



What part of there are 365 mother fucking days in a year to choose another one from do these complete fucking MORONS not get?!!

Hello, I'm With The Government And I Don't Have A Fucking Clue As To What I Should Be Doing

This Ebola virus that you hear about?
The government has no clue as to what to do about it.
No hospital in the country is prepared for a serious outbreak and no one event wants to get near the Bio waste generated already by just two infected individuals.

When I say they have no clue I am not kidding.
Head on over to The Raconteur Report for some sobering information and adjust your reality levels accordingly.

Speaking of reality, the reality is that if this stuff gets out among the general population you can expect mass panic and knee jerk attempts to deal with it from the authorities.

In all seriousness, this has the potential to be the New Smallpox.

As far as I am aware, no one yet has made that prediction, you heard it here first.

It's a virus people, not a germ.
Smallpox was also caused by a virus.
It wiped out millions, hundreds of millions in the 20th century alone.

We aren't in Kansas anymore Toto.

Holy Moly, I'll volunteer if the position is open!!

Closing The Barn Door After The Virus Got Out

For all the power mad freaks in government and the authoritarians they love, I can not for the life of me figure out why they didn't do this from the minute they found out this guy was wandering about, spreading a deadly fucking virus around but then again, like I have said many times, never underestimate the enormous capacity for stupid in people.


Ebola patient’s family quarantined as officials search for possible exposures

 

The family of Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan were legally quarantined Thursday after they did not comply with Dallas health officials requests that they stay home.
Doctors are taking the temperatures of four family members in the unit where Duncan was staying twice a day to monitor symptoms as part of the health surveillance efforts being led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and local Dallas government.
“If people leave, even though they’re asymptomatic, if they’re not at home when we go out to do our surveillance test on them, then that defeats the purpose of that surveillance test and that endangers them … if they were to be infected, they need to know that as quickly as possible,” said Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins. “So it’s for their benefit and everyone else’s.”
Texas health officials said during a press conference Thursday that the family would be quarantined in their apartment unit for the next 20 days until the potential incubation period for Ebola is over.

 



Oh you have just GOT to go read the rest of this, it is like a mini drama/horror show with a Socialist support cast.

Five schoolchildren had contact with Dallas Ebola patient

Those five kids went to FOUR DIFFERENT SCHOOLS.

Since we are talking about school, do the math.
How many kids have now possibly been exposed to Ebola?
How many family members?
How many co workers of some of those family members?

You get the idea.

All because they don't quarantine everybody coming out of the African Nations known to have Ebola outbreaks.

Can't do that, makes too much fucking sense.

There are some stupid motherfuckers running this country.

Five elementary, middle and high school students who had contact with a man diagnosed in Dallas with Ebola are being monitored, Texas officials said Wednesday.

The children, who attend four different schools, were in class earlier in the week but show no symptoms of the deadly disease and will be monitored at home, officials said.

Also, a health official said information about the patient’s recent travel from Liberia was not relayed to the full clinical team that initially treated him at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital on Friday. The patient, who has not been identified, was sent home with antibiotics.


The man was brought back to the hospital in an ambulance on Sunday and placed in isolation. Tests confirmed Tuesday that he is infected with the Ebola virus. He is in serious, but stable condition.

Some have said they are worried about the public health implications of having an active Ebola case in Dallas. Public health officials are searching for all those who came into contact with the patient when he became infectious and will monitor them for 21 days in case they develop symptoms.

The three emergency medical workers who took the patient to the hospital Sunday tested negative for Ebola and have been sent home, the city tweeted. They too will be monitored during the incubation period of the virus.

When the unidentified patient stepped off a commercial airliner on Sept. 20 he did not show symptoms and went to North Texas to visit family members.

We are talking about Hemorrhagic Fever here people, this is seriously nasty fucking shit.



Yeah, let's have some of that running loose.

The incompetence of some people can have deadly results.
