Man With Axe Attacks DC Police Officer


From WTOP:
WASHINGTON -- D.C. Police are at a heightened state of alert after a man with an ax attacked an officer early Friday. 
The incident happened around 3 a.m. in the 3800 block of 13th Street in Northeast, several blocks east of the Catholic University campus. 
An officer in full uniform was in a police cruiser when he was ambushed, according to Officer Araz Alali, a D.C. police spokesman. 
The suspect swung an ax and shattered the cruiser's window. 
The officer got out of the vehicle and tried to apprehend the suspect. Alali said he was injured in the struggle, not by the ax, and was unable to stop the attacker. 
The officer was taken to the hospial, and was expected to be OK. 
"He's a little shaken up. But he's OK," the officer's former partner tells WTOP. Police are now looking for the suspect, who fled on foot westbound through the south alley of the 1200 block of Quincy Street NE toward 12th Street NE. 
A description of the suspect has not been released. The ax used in the ambush was recovered, and it is being processed. 
Alali said there does not appear to be a connection to last week's hatchet attack on a group of New York City officers, but said the department will cover all bases in the investigation.
No, there couldn't be any connection to any previous axe attacks against Police Officer on the Eastern Seaboard.

Why would there be?

Election = More of the last 4 years of entropy, or a Constitutional crisis? You all ready?

That’s right sports fans.

We are either going to have divisive claims of woman hating, do nothing, racist (see every election ad in the last 10 days) sound bytes centered on 2016 and IGNORING the actual problems here and in the world, or we are going to have a constitutional crisis over Mr. Obama SHOWING US he knows what being president to transform America really means.

It’s going to come over amnesty, Health Care, Budget, Military, Business, Taxes, Climate, Resources, Fracking, Drilling, Banking ..in every category you can imagine the voted will of the people in the House and Senate is going to be met by the well meaning mistake of 2008, and the CYNICAL LIES EUCHRING the American people in 2012.

This will go on over vetoes, and finally in court until Obama decides to match his will against 34 democratic Senators who will vote to NOT CONVICT.
We will all be treated to ever more bitter claims of racism, and misogyny by republicans. And EVER GROWING suspicions by one side of the other since progress in Congress will no longer end in Harry Reid’s draw.

And that is the best case (meaning if R’s can actually PASS STUFF - which remains to be seen)

The only way this is avoided is if Obama becomes PRACTICAL and performs the day to day requisites of his job which he hates - contact with his real enemy, not ISIS, not Bibi, not the Mullahs, - the leaders of the cracker opposition - Rubio, Cruz, hopefully Mia Love, and those other R’s WHO HAPPEN TO BE VANILLA in color but R by character- TO ACHIEVE COMPROMISE

Spanish Intelligence Intercepts Plot to Weaponise Ebola



Spanish intelligence has intercepted messages passed between jihadists online discussing the weaponisation of the deadly Ebola virus for use against the West, while a blackmailer in Prague has threatened to unleash the virus unless the Czech Republic pay him one million bitcoin, a volume of online currency worth over £200 million.

UN Chief Launches Campaign to End Female Genital Mutilation

UN chief Ban Ki-moon launched Thursday a global campaign to end the often deadly practice of female genital mutilation within a generation, as survivors said it had “shattered” their lives. 
“The mutilation of girls and women must stop in this generation, our generation,” Ban said on a visit to the Kenyan capital Nairobi. 
“Men and boys must also be encouraged to support the fight against FGM — and they should be praised when they do.”

The Climate Change Blues: Climate Scientists Suffering From “Pre-Traumatic Stress Disorder” Because No One Takes Their Predictions Seriously

It Can Get Pretty Lonely Out There On That Iceberg 
All By Your Lonesome

This is what happens when you keep trying to push the same scam for years on end.
Two years ago, Camille Parmesan, a professor at Plymouth University and the University of Texas at Austin, became so “professionally depressed” that she questioned abandoning her research in climate change entirely. 
Parmesan has a pretty serious stake in the field. In 2007, she shared a Nobel Peace Prize with Al Gore for her work as a lead author of the Third Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). 
In 2009, The Atlantic named her one of 27 “Brave Thinkers” for her work on the impacts of climate change on species around the globe. Barack Obama and Mark Zuckerberg were also on the list. 
“In the U.S., [climate change] isn’t well-supported by the funding system, and when I give public talks in the U.S., I have to devote the first half of the talk to [the topic] that climate change is really happening,” says Parmesan, now a professor at Plymouth University in England. 
Parmesan certainly isn’t the first to experience some sort of climate-change blues. From depression to substance abuse to suicide and post-traumatic stress disorder, growing bodies of research in the relatively new field of psychology of global warming suggest that climate change will take a pretty heavy toll on the human psyche as storms become more destructive and droughts more prolonged. 
For your everyday environmentalist, the emotional stress suffered by a rapidly changing Earth can result in some pretty substantial anxieties.   
“I don’t know of a single scientist that’s not having an emotional reaction to what is being lost,” Parmesan is quoted saying in the National Wildlife Federation’s 2012 report, “The Psychological Effects of Global Warming on the United States: And Why the U.S. Mental Health Care System is Not Adequately Prepared.” 
“It’s gotten to be so depressing that I’m not sure I’m going to go back to this particular site again,” she says, referring to an ocean reef she has studied since 2002, “because I just know I’m going to see more and more of it dead, and bleached, and covered with brown algae.” 
Lise Van Susteren, a forensic psychiatrist based in Washington, D.C. — and co-author of the National Wildlife Federation’s report — calls this emotional reaction “pre-traumatic stress disorder,” a term she coined to describe the mental anguish that results from preparing for the worst, before it actually happens.
GO READ THE WHOLE THING.

Kaci Hickox Trained As Intelligence Officer for the CDC



Kaci, that special snowflake of a 'nurse' in Maine just happened to be trained as an “intelligence officer” under a two-year CDC program modeled after the U.S. military.
via: DailyCaller

"Hickox was a class of 2012 member of the CDC's two-year EIS officer training program, according to the official program for CDC's 2014 EIS Conference (p.98), which was held from April 28 to May 1, 2014. Hickox was featured in a photograph in the program.Hickox was listed as an "EIS officer" for the CDC in program materials for a DC course she taught in July 2014. She was specifically listed as an active "EIS officer" as recently as July 18, 2014, according to CDC documents.

EU Tyranny: New Law against Democratically Dismantling EU from Within


It looks as if this new law is meant to serve as a severe roadblock to parties that would like to dismantle the EU in a democratic and peaceful way from within. A rather dull semantic trick pro-EU figures usually apply, is calling their opponents "anti-Europe."
Two years ago, the European Commission proposed a law that would authorize an "independent authority" within the European Parliament [EP] to decide whether EP parties would receive an official legal status as EP parties. This legal status is needed for a party to obtain EP party subsidy, which is designed to cover 85% of party expenditures.
Despite a British and Dutch lobby against the law, it was passed by the EP on September 29, 2014.
Among the demands parties have to meet are that of "internal party democracy" and that they must "respect the values on which the European Union is based."

The law states that: "decisions regarding a party's respect for values on which the EU is based, may only be taken following a special procedure and in cooperation with a committee of independent prominent individuals."

Marz realizes that ISIS are a gang of savages

It appears Marz has shown a better side of himself, as somebody willing to recognize that the Islamic State of Iraq & Syria is a sick entity:

Amazing. Now Marz is beginning to get the picture of what Islamofascists are really like. I just hope he also realizes the belief system they go by is what's led to these horrors. After all, if communism led the Russians and Chinese to where they've been for many years, then something must've led ISIS to commit the atrocities they're pulling now.

However, he's also tweeted another flawed perception of countries with strict gun control laws:

As I'd once noted, countries with strict regulations are some of the worst places you can be on the globe. And ISIS' use of guns in Syria and Iraq contradicts the notion there's less gun violence in those regions, that's for sure. A similar situation occurred in Somalia/Kenya. And the worst part is that some of the weapons ISIS are using may have come from the USA. I don't suppose Marz finds that disturbing?

Two hours after I post about Obama’s IMPRUDENCE on Ebola..

CDC admits droplets from a sneeze could spread Ebola

Ebola is a lot easier to catch than health officials have admitted — and can be contracted by contact with a doorknob contaminated by a sneeze from an infected person an hour or more before, experts told The Post Tuesday.
“If you are sniffling and sneezing, you produce microorganisms that can get on stuff in a room. If people touch them, they could be” infected, said Dr. Meryl Nass, of the Institute for Public Accuracy in Washington, DC.
Nass pointed to a poster the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention quietly released on its Web site saying the deadly virus can be spread through “droplets.”
“Droplet spread happens when germs traveling inside droplets that are coughed or sneezed from a sick person enter the eyes, nose or mouth of another person,” the poster states.
Nass slammed the contradiction.
“The CDC said it doesn’t spread at all by air, then Friday they came out with this poster,” she said. “They admit that these particles or droplets may land on objects such as doorknobs and that Ebola can be transmitted that way.”
ONCE AGAIN here is my post of earlier today .,..

Obama, John Holdren, and the Logic of Importing Ebola Patients For Treatment in the U.S. - Let's Think About This For A Second

We Need To Work With Our Ebola Trade Partners In Africa To Insure American Citizens Have Free and Easy Access To The Ebola Virus

Internal memo pushes bringing non-citizens to US for Ebola treatment; State denies plan
The “purpose” of the memo states: “Come to an agreed State Department position on the extent to which non-U.S. citizens will be admitted to the United States for treatment of Ebola Virus Disease.” 
The document goes on to discuss – and advocate for -- devising such a plan. 
The memo recommends that “State and DHS devise a system for expeditious parole of Ebola-infected non-citizens into the United States as long as they are otherwise eligible for medical evacuation from the Ebola affected countries and for entry into the United States.”  
Explaining that recommendation, the memo says the U.S., for instance, has an “obligation” to help non-citizen employees of U.S. agencies and U.S.-based private firms. 
It says the U.S. “needs to show leadership and act as we are asking others to act by admitting certain non-citizens into the country for medical treatment for Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) during the Ebola crisis.”





AND NOW, LET US PONDER JOHN HOLDREN AND THE FACT THAT WE HAVE A PRESIDENT WHO WOULD APPOINT SUCH HUMAN SCUM TO BE HIS SENIOR ADVISOR ON HEALTH AND TECHNOLOGY ISSUES.
Comment at Free Republic by Cincinatus' Wife
John P. Holdren, Science and Technology Adviser for Barack Obama 2008 - Present.

"....Holdren gave a clear indication of his philosophical views in the 1977 book Ecoscience, which he co-authored with Paul and Anne Ehrlich. In its pages, the authors noted, "The neo-Malthusiasn view proposes...population limitation and redistribution of wealth." They concluded, "On these points, we find ourselves firmly in the neo-Malthusian camp."

Economist Thomas Malthus is one of the most literally anti-human theorists in human history. He viewed overpopulation as the fount of all woe, but one which could be staunched with enough blood. 

In "An Essay on the Principle of Population" Malthus wrote, "All the children who are born, beyond what would be required to keep up the population to a desired level, must necessarily perish, unless room be made for them by the death of grown persons...if we dread the too frequent visitation of the horrid form of famine, we should sedulously encourage the other forms of destruction, which we compel nature to use...and court the return of the plague." Like their intellectual forebear, Holdren and the Ehrlichs proposed their own acceptable sacrifice to the environment....."

Chickenshit-‘gate’ was INEVITABLE

It is SIMPLE.

They don’t like each other, VISCERALLY and never did - THEREFORE..
They have poor ability to have faith in each other, leading to GRAVE MISTRUST, incorrect conclusions and finally name calling which is so manifest it has spread to other members of the govts who are so inured to what these leaders REALLY ARE SAYING it breaks into the realm of real world public info.

For Netanyahu (and the bulk of Israeli leaders..and people..just look at any poll) the real problem is the lack of faith that Obama BELIEVES Israel is in the right, in physical danger, and is a valuable, PERHAPS irreplaceable American ally in the ME.

For Obama, the goal is a peace in the ME and Israel’s intransigence and lack of faith in American purposes is a needless and aggravating issue, and their settlements PROVE they are not in the right.

This problem with THIS president was INEVITABLE.

Lost in this melee btw was the American official’s bland comment that it was “too late” for Israel to stop Iran from getting nukes. Which tells us that the USA HAS ACCEPTED IRAN WITH NUKES.

Wait until there is a detente and agreement with these racist freaks in Iran. You ain’t seen nothing yet.

I GET IT : (Imprudent nature+arrogance)*solipsoid personality=BARACK OBAMA

Looking at the picture below, it finally came to me what the problem is (over ebola anyway)

The people in the background are supposed to be all ebola workers who in some states would fall within the 21 day isolation period.
Never mind that I don’t understand why it is so onerous for those whose selflessness to others they never met is so large they risk their lives, but not so selfless they will not work with the CAUTION of those they live with .. in their home neighborhoods, what I don’t get is why the president does NOT COMPREHEND THAT:
  1. Given the failures of the CDC to properly PREPARE over SIX MONTHS their assurances are gravely doubted and thus states feel compelled to act on their own..this includes the proper barrier clothing, protocols and RESPIRATORS for those who will treat ebola (mind boggling- those last 3)
  2. Given the FAILED assurance of both the CDC and the president himself (it’s HERE), I fail to understand why they don’t comprehend the massive public hesitancy to accept their PRESENT words
  3. Given that these assurances have FAILED I don’t understand the continuing lack of caution on the part of the national executive
But I do understand something.. the president, always and in the mirror the smartest person in the room, accepted what is clearly INCOMPLETE, if not doubted or WRONG SCIENCE.
It IS possible (though UNLIKELY) to get ebola from someone sick on the bus near you. It IS possible (though UNLIKELY) to contact live ebola virus on a hard surface after more than a month of it being there.
Barack Obama is IMPRUDENT once his smartest man in the room brain accepts something.
Thus he insists the nation bet an outbreak against that which is possible but unlikely.
Gov’s. Brown, Lepage, Christie, and Cuomo (at the LEAST) don’t want to make that bet.
The worst president in the history of the USA is such as one of his main faults is THIS PATTERN. And he is in the midst of doubling down right now.

As for fellow Mainer Kaci Hickox, it is UNBELIEVABLE to me that her personality which drove her to such brave and selfless acts in far off Africa, in dangerous circumstances, does NOT EXTEND to her own neighbors, especially given the incomplete, doubtful or WRONG science - regardless of the legal situation

Maine Governor Issues Statement – Will Force Quarantine of Ebola Nurse Kaci Hickox


Maine.gov reported:
Governor Paul R. LePage issued a statement Wednesday morning about a healthcare worker who had been quarantined in New Jersey and is now in Fort Kent still under voluntary quarantine.
“We commend all healthcare workers for their humanitarian work in West Africa and other regions in the world, and we are proud that Americans are always ready to help others,” said Governor LePage. “However, the healthcare worker who is in Fort Kent has been unwilling to follow the protocols set forth by the Maine CDC and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control for medical workers who have been in contact with Ebola patients.”
“We hoped that the healthcare worker would voluntarily comply with these protocols, but this individual has stated publicly she will not abide by the protocols,” Governor LePage said. “We are very concerned about her safety and health and that of the community. We are exploring all of our options for protecting the health and well-being of the healthcare worker, anyone who comes in contact with her, the Fort Kent community and all of Maine. While we certainly respect the rights of one individual, we must be vigilant in protecting 1.3 million Mainers, as well as anyone who visits our great state.”
Upon learning the healthcare worker intends to defy the protocols, the Office of the Governor has been working collaboratively with the State health officials within the Department of Health and Human Services to seek legal authority to enforce the quarantine.
Governor LePage and the Maine CDC have been following the care and movements of the healthcare worker since Monday. The Maine State Police will monitor the residence in Fort Kent where the healthcare worker is staying, for both her protection and the health of the community.
Nurse Kaci Hickox announced on NBC’s Today show Wednesday that she will leave home tomorrow in Maine, despite a 21-day quarantine.

Ha Ha Ha Ha - WaPo/ABC Poll: Twice As Many Hispanics Want GOP Over Dems To Control The Senate


From the Washington Post:
This number jumped out at me from the new Washington Post/ABC News poll: It showed that, among Latinos, 50 percent say it doesn’t matter who wins the Senate come November. And among those who do think it will matter, twice as many say it would be a good thing (30 percent) if the GOP took over as say it would be a bad thing (15 percent). 
This is a demographic, we will remind you, that voted 71-27 for President Obama just two years ago. And only 15 percent are concerned about a GOP-controlled Senate.

CHRISTIAN PRIEST TELLS UN: ISRAEL THE ONLY MIDDLE EAST COUNTRY NOT PERSECUTING CHRISTIANS



From UN Watch:
Mr. President, I am speaking to you on behalf of UN Watch.
Standing before you is Father Gabriel Naddaf, a Christian citizen from Nazareth, the city in which Christ was raised and where he proselytized.
Dear Sirs, while I stand before you today, the earth of the Middle East is soaked with the blood of Christians being killed daily.
Do you know that at the start of the 20th century, Christians comprised 20% of the population of the Middle East?
Today they comprise only 4%.
Do you know that over the past years some 100,000 Christians have been killed annually? And why? Not for a crime they’ve committed, but only for believing in Christ.
In Iraq alone, more than 77% of the Christians have fled during the year 2000, in addition to thousands killed and expelled.
Some 2 million Christians lived in Syria, but today, they are less than 250,000.
Christians in these countries are treated as second-class citizens; facing racial, religious, economic and social discrimination.
Why is this happening? Only due to their religion, a religion that advocates love and peace between mankind.
Christians in the Middle East are marginalized; their rights denied, their property stolen, their honor violated, their men killed, and their children displaced.
Where will they go? Who will defend them? And who will guard their property?
If we look at the Middle East, Mr. President, we realize there’s only one safe place where Christians are not persecuted.
One place where they are protected, enjoying freedom of worship and expression, living in peace and not subjected to killing and genocide.
It is Israel, the country I live in. The Jewish state is the only safe place where the Christians of the Holy Land live in safety.
Christians and Jews live in Israel not only because Christ was originally Jewish, born in Jewish Bethlehem, but because they share a common destiny, and a true hope to coexist in peace.
Does the world acknowledge Israel for protecting its Christians? Many in the international community have chosen to criticize Israel.
This, in my mind, is a double crime: because by doing so, the international community helps those striving to annihilate the Jews, the Christians, the Druze and the Yazidis for political ends.
By doing so, the international community unfortunately contributes to exacerbating the humanitarian crisis in the Middle East.
It causes Christians to leave the land of Christ searching for a safe haven across the world.
It is time for the world to awaken and realize the truth of those striving to destroy the Jewish state.
They are hastening the death sentence of Christians in the Middle East and the Holy Land, the land which witnessed the birth and life of our Lord Jesus Christ. If they leave, who will remain in it?
I, Father Gabrial Naddaf of Nazareth, stand before you and plead: O world leaders and supporters of peace, stop those who want to destroy the only free Jewish state in the region.
It is the only refuge welcoming and protecting all of its citizens. It is the only place that does not attempt to push out Christians, forcing them to leave their land in search of security.
I implore you from the bottom of my heart to hear the cry of the Christians of the Middle East before it is too late, and you may read about them only in the history books.
Thank you, Mr. President.

Israeli Scientist Predicts Global Ebola Vaccine in Five Years

And His Name Even Rhymes With Nobel

From the Latin America Herald Tribune:
JERUSALEM – Leslie Lobel, a virologist at Israel’s Ben-Gurion University, is not surprised by the current epidemic of Ebola in West Africa and says that sooner or later it would have happened. 
For the past 12 years, Lobel has studied several strains of the deadly virus in his lab at the Israeli university, in coordination with the Virus Research Institute in Uganda, where he travels several times a year. 
His research focuses on analyzing survivors and studying how their bodies become immune to the disease thanks to human monoclonal antibodies that have neutralized the virus and could serve to develop a long-awaited vaccine. 
“In the last four years we have gathered a host of human antibodies that can neutralize the Ebola and Marburg hemorrhagic fever viruses,” he told Efe. 
His team, which has isolated antibodies from survivors, expects an effective “global vaccine” to be available within approximately five years for different strains of the virus. 
Although the World Health Organization (WHO) hopes that a vaccine to contain the spread of the current epidemic could be ready in early 2015 for use in Africa, the scientist believes the announcement is quite rash. 
“We cannot produce cures in that accelerated manner. It is simply not realistic, no matter how much money is invested,” he argues vehemently. 
The U.S. Army currently has an active vaccine available, but Lobel’s goal is to create anti-bodies from components produced by the human immune system, which would make fighting the virus faster and more effective. 
Originally from New York and educated at Columbia University, the Ebola expert, who emigrated to Israel in 2003, is the only academic researcher on the subject outside the United States.
