13,500 US Visas Given To People From 3 Ebola Countries

From the Daily Caller:

13,500 US Visas Given To People in Three Ebola Countries

Neil Munro | 10/01/2014

Roughly 13,500 people from the Ebola-stricken countries of Sierra Leon, Guinea and Liberia have visas to visit the United States, according to federal data. The data doesn’t show how many of those people are already in the United States —

Given that the Los Angeles Times has just reported that there are 10,000 Liberians living in Dallas, Texas alone, the grand total of West Africans currently in the US must be many times higher.

And, as we have previously noted, Liberians rank fifth in countries with people in the US on overstayed visas. Also, 40% of our illegal alien population is here on ‘overstayed’ visas. Which puts the number at 4 million people with overstayed visas.

Ebola Patient Stayed In Neighborhood With 10K Liberians

From the Los Angeles Times:

Area known as ‘Ellis Island of Dallas’ at the center of Ebola scare

By John M. Glionna | October 1, 2014

Many have come to the neighborhood known as Five Points to escape. They wait in the low-slung, working-class apartments to find out whether they will be granted asylum and a shot at a new life away from the violence, poverty and disease that scarred the lives they fled in places as far away as Asia and Africa.

In other words, they are illegal aliens.

On Wednesday, residents here learned that the Ebola virus some of them had left behind in West Africa had crossed the ocean, bringing a familiar fear to their new homes in the United States.

Who could have imagined that they would bring their diseases, too?

Ebola Patient Contacts Zoom To 80, Family Wants Zmapp

From ABC News:

Ebola Patient’s Texas Contacts Zoom to 80, Authorities Say

October 2, 2014

The number of people who came into contact with Texas Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan has zoomed from as many as 18 to 80, health officials in Texas announced in a statement today…

That was quick. So how is the CDC going to monitor 80 people?

Medical authorities initially said that they were interviewing and monitoring 12 to 18 people, including five children, who had been in contact with Duncan since he arrived Sept. 19. But today Dallas Health Director Zack Thompson told ABC News affiliate WFAA that 80 people who may have come in contact with Duncan are being interviewed.

But there is nothing to worry about. As Obama said, an outbreak of Ebola is the US is very unlikely.

13 Adults, 5 Children Had Contact With Ebola Patient

From Reuters:

Dallas Ebola patient vomited outside apartment on way to hospital

By Lisa Maria Garza | October 1, 2014

(Reuters) – Two days after he was sent home from a Dallas hospital, the man who is the first person to be diagnosed with Ebola in the United States was seen vomiting on the ground outside an apartment complex as he was bundled into an ambulance…

"His whole family was screaming. He got outside and he was throwing up all over the place," resident Mesud Osmanovic, 21, said on Wednesday, describing the chaotic scene before the man was admitted to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital on Sunday where he is in serious condition.

What a sensible reaction from the family.

The hospital cited the stricken man’s privacy as the reason for not identifying him…

And it had nothing to do with him probably planning to come to the US to live as an illegal alien with his illegal alien relatives.

Ebola Patient Took Three Flights, Had Long Lay-Overs

From CBS News:

Airline discloses flights Ebola patient traveled on

October 1, 2014

… The patient, identified as Thomas Eric Duncan by CBS Dallas station KTVT, left Monrovia, Liberia, on Sept. 19 aboard a Brussels Airlines jet to the Belgian capital, according to a Belgian official. After layover of nearly seven hours, he boarded United Airlines Flight 951 to Dulles International Airport near Washington, D.C. After another layover of nearly three hours, he then flew Flight 822 from Dulles to Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, the airline confirmed.

So how many people may have come into contact with him during these three flights and lengthy lay-overs? How many people sat in his seat on subsequent flights?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Duncan sought medical care Sept.

Dallas Ebola Patient Helped Woman Who Died Of Ebola

From the New York Times:

U.S. Patient Aided Pregnant Liberian, Then Took Ill

By NORIMITSU ONISHI | October 1, 2014

MONROVIA, Liberia — A man who flew to Dallas and was later found to have the Ebola virus was identified by senior Liberian government officials on Wednesday as Thomas Eric Duncan, a resident of Monrovia in his mid-40s.

So we now know he is not an American citizen. Why was this information withheld?

Mr. Duncan, the first person to develop symptoms outside Africa during the current epidemic, had direct contact with a woman stricken by Ebola on Sept. 15, just four days before he left Liberia for the United States, the woman’s parents and Mr. Duncan’s neighbors said.

In a pattern often seen here in Monrovia, the Liberian capital, the family of the woman, Marthalene Williams, 19, took her by taxi to a hospital with Mr.

Patient In Hawaii Is Being Monitored For Possible Ebola

From the Fox Honolulu affiliate, KHON:

Patient in isolation at Queen’s Medical Center, officials say Ebola a possibility

By Kristine Uyeno | October 1, 2014

The Department of Health has confirmed a patient is currently in isolation and undergoing testing in Honolulu. The Hawaii Nurses Association said the person is being treated at The Queen’s Medical Center.

It turns out we only know about this case because of the nurses union. (See the end of the article.)

Officials told KHON2 Ebola is a possibility, however the patient has yet to be specifically tested for the virus. “We are early in the investigation of a patient — very, very early — who we’re investigating that might have Ebola,” said Dr. Melissa Viray, deputy state epidemiologist. “It’s very possible that they do and they have Ebola.

Yippee! California Becomes 1st State To Ban Plastic Bags

From a cheering Associated Press:

California becomes first state to ban plastic bags

By FENIT NIRAPPIL | September 30, 2014

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed the nation’s first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags at grocery and convenience stores, driven to action by pollution in streets and waterways.

A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015.

Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of checkout counters at large grocery stores and supermarkets such as Wal-Mart and Target starting next summer, and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016…

The rats are going to love this. After all, most people now use plastic grocery bags as their trash bags.

FCC Considering Banning Redskins Name As ‘Obscenity’

From Reuters:

FCC considering move to ban NFL Redskins team name

September 30, 2014

The Federal Communications Commission is considering whether to punish broadcasters for using the moniker of the Washington NFL team, the Redskins, a word many consider a slur to Native Americans, the agency’s chairman indicated on Tuesday.

"Many"? Where are they? They never show up in any polls? We have never met such a person.

The FCC, which enforces broadcast indecency violations, has received a petition from legal activist John Banzhaf III, asking that regulators strip local radio station WWXX-FM of its broadcasting license when it comes up for renewal for using the name "Redskins."

Banzhaf says the word is racist, derogatory, profane and hateful, making its use "akin to broadcasting obscenity."

Which is pretty hilarious given all of the real obscenity on broadcast television.

Obama Is Spending $4M On Lawyers For Illegal Aliens

From a cheering Associated Press:

U.S. government funds lawyers for immigrant children

By AMY TAXIN [sic] | September 30, 2014

The Obama administration is spending $4 million on lawyers for unaccompanied immigrant children in deportation proceedings, a move an influential Republican lawmaker says is illegal and will fuel an increase in illegal immigration.

How can it be illegal to spend millions of taxpayer dollars to help illegal aliens stay in this country so they can get welfare and vote Democrat? The Republicans are just racist bigots.

Kenneth Wolfe, a spokesman for the Department of Health and Human Services’ Administration for Children and Families, said on Tuesday that it is the first time the office that oversees programs for unaccompanied immigrant children will provide money for direct legal representation…

One more gift to the taxpayer from Eric Holder as he goes out the door and beyond all accountability.

Obama Will Open ‘Refugee Centers’ In Central America

From Reuters:

White House moves to deal with child migrant issue

By Steve Holland and Roberta Rampton | September 30, 2014

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The White House announced its intention on Tuesday to establish refugee processing in Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala to try to deter unaccompanied children from resorting to crossing the U.S.-Mexico border on their own.

In other words, Mr. Obama is going "to deal with the ‘child migrant’ issue" by importing more of them. And by importing them directly from their home countries, thereby cutting out the middle men (the coyotes).

The announcement was made in a memorandum to U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry that also said the admission of up to 70,000 refugees to the United States in fiscal year 2015 is justified by humanitarian concerns.

Holder’s Justice Department To Ban Mosque Monitoring

From the Los Angeles Times:

Justice Department to ban profiling by federal law enforcement

By Timothy M. Phelps | September 26, 2014

WASHINGTON – The Justice Department is expected to issue a broad new policy in the coming two to three weeks banning religious and other forms of profiling by federal law enforcement officers, department sources said Friday.

The long-awaited policy will not include an exemption for national security investigations, sources said. National security officials and others in the administration concerned about terrorism lobbied hard for such an exemption, according to congressional sources.

We would say that our country has a death wish. But it is only a few who want to see our destruction. Unfortunately, they are in positions of power. Like Eric Holder and Mr.

OK Beheading Suspect Charged With Murder, Not Terror

From those relentless defenders of the faith at the Associated Press:

Oklahoma man charged with murder in beheading

By SEAN MURPHY | September 30, 2014

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — An Oklahoma man apparently uttered Arabic words during an attack in which he allegedly severed a co-worker’s head, and had "some sort of infatuation with beheadings," but the killing appeared to have more to do with the man’s suspension from his job than his recent conversion to Islam, a prosecutor said Tuesday.

What a preposterous lead even by AP standards. But they are trying to make lemonade out of lemons.

Alton Nolen, 30, could face the death penalty after being charged with first-degree murder in the attack Thursday that authorities say appears to have been an act of revenge for a co-worker’s complaint that got him suspended.

SS Let Obama Ride On Elevator With An Armed Ex-Con

From an apoplectic Washington Post:

Armed contractor with criminal record was on elevator with Obama in Atlanta

By Carol D. Leonnig | September 30, 2014

A security contractor with a gun and three convictions for assault and battery was allowed on an elevator with President Obama during a Sept. 16 trip to Atlanta, violating Secret Service protocols, according to three people familiar with the incident.

Was he trying to pass himself off as an interpreter for the deaf? If so, then it’s only natural he got a pass.

Obama was not told about the lapse in his security, these people said. The Secret Service director, Julia Pierson, asked a top agency manager to look into the matter but did not refer it to an investigative unit that was created to review violations of protocol and standards, according to two people familiar with the handling of the case who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

DOD Official: Obama Was Warned Iraqi Army Not Ready

From the Daily Caller:

Pentagon Official: The President Is Lying To America — About Us, And About ISIS

By Joseph Miller | September 30, 2014

(Joseph Miller is the pen name for a ranking Department of Defense official with a background in U.S. special operations and combat experience in Iraq and Afghanistan. He has worked in strategic planning.)

… On Sunday, Obama said the intelligence community had underestimated the rise of ISIS, saying in an interview with CBS, “Our head of the intelligence community, Jim Clapper, has acknowledged that, I think, they underestimated what had been taking place in Syria.”

But we know that isn’t true, as nearly a dozen administration officials have testified to the threat posed by ISIS publicly over the last year…

To mitigate the fallout, Earnest’s office issued a statement stating that, “…A lot of that [decision-making] was predicated on the will of the Iraqi security forces to fight for their country.” But this was also not true.
