Barack Obama and his regime have allowed a virulent fast-killing disease for which there is no cure to take root inside the United States.

Ebola has been in Texas, Ohio, and now it is in New York City.

But note the Orwellian manipulation in the reporting of this horrible news:

NEW YORK (AP) — A doctor who became New York City’s first Ebola patient was praised for getting treatment immediately upon showing symptoms, and health officials stressed that the nation’s most populous city need not fear his wide-ranging travel in the days before his illness began. <Associated Press / Yahoo News, link>

Amazing isn’t it, how fast the writer of this news story shifts into propaganda by jumping into a positive message about the patient being “praised” and how health officials are saying that people “should not worry”.

But should we worry?

Read this next part:

Mayor Bill de Blasio and Gov. Andrew Cuomo urged residents not to be alarmed by the doctor’s diagnosis Thursday, even as they described him riding the subway, taking a cab and bowling since returning to New York from Guinea a week ago. De Blasio said all city officials followed “clear and strong” protocols in their handling and treatment of him.

Well now, I feel so much safer that De Blasio is telling us not to worry, don’t you?

Ebola passing through the subway system, a taxi, and a bowling alley.

I don’t see any possibility of an outbreak, do you?

The real question on Ebola is whether we as citizens are going to swallow these false assurances or not.

In the most recent Ebola story I saw I came across this paragraph and could only shake my head:

The Ebola outbreak in West Africa, and its arrival in the United States, is the latest in a cascade of crises that have stretched Mr. Obama’s national security staff thin. As the White House scrambled to stop the spread of Ebola beyond a handful of cases, officials were also grappling with an escalating military campaign against the Islamic State, the specter of a new Cold War with Russia over Ukraine, and the virtual disintegration of Yemen, which has been a seedbed for Al Qaeda. <New York Times, link>

This is what failed leadership looks like, or perhaps what the Enemy Within looks like: a “cascade of crises“.

Either way, our nation has been pummeled by the Obama regime, and it is not even over yet.

How much worse?

I am not surprised that news reports this weekend report that Barack Obama is very “angry” about how the Ebola crisis has been handled.

Here is the weekend New York Times headline, on the top right of the very front page <link>:

Amid Assurances on Ebola, Obama Is Said to Seethe

No, this pathetic excuse for leadership is what we have come to expect with this president. He doesn’t get ahead of events, he lags far behind them and then “gets angry” about how his team has screwed it all up.

Beneath the calming reassurance that President Obama has repeatedly offered during the Ebola crisis, there is a deepening frustration, even anger, with how the government has handled key elements of the response.

He’s angry at the government?? Wait – isn’t he the president? Isn’t he a rather major part of the government? Of course he is. He sits atop the entire thing, and yet he cannot accept any responsibility for what happens on his watch. By now, six years into his regime, this ongoing disgrace is legendary and not fooling anyone.

And yet…

What does surprise me is that the New York Times faithfully promulgates this canned White House message. Why would the editors and owner do so at this point?

It’s easy to see why Valerie Jarrett and mr. Obama’s inner circle want to have him portrayed as “being angry” once a crisis has gone far beyond the point it should have. First, we have mr. Obama’s excessive rounds of golf and visage that says “I don’t care about any of this”. Even Obama supporters can’t stomach it when he so obviously is out to lunch on issues like Ebola, or half a dozen other train wrecks unfolding every day. Second, we have mr. Obama’s feckless leadership to cover up, and when you don’t have real leadership to talk about, you have to resort to plan B, which in this man’s case is “He’s angry” things are not going better, and it’s everybody’s fault except his.

So when the White House calls the Times and says “Here’s today’s narrative: Barack is angry about the Ebola response!!”, why do Times editors turn it into a front page story?

Why don’t they shrug their shoulders and say “So what? The president is angry? This is not news, sorry.”

But no, they print it most faithfully, including all of the blame the president heaps on this team.

Check this nugget from the “story”:

He told aides they needed to get ahead of events and demanded a more hands-on approach…

Sure, Barack, just like you are doing! Staying ahead of things and taking a hands on approach!

Lead by example, as they say, except it’s a fantasy because Barack Obama is the complete embodiment of the opposite of these things.

Why print this narrative and call it news?

No shame at the New York Times, apparently.

I met someone today who said he refused a business trip within the USA because of his fear of Ebola. I had not read this story and told him he was being overly cautious, and that unless he is planning to fly internationally, out of LAX or JFK, for example, that he should not fear traveling between two American cities.

Well guess what?

I was wrong.

Amber Joy Vinson, a 29-year-old nurse at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas, became ill after having contact with Thomas Eric Duncan, the Liberian man who died from the killer virus earlier this month.

It was disclosed Wednesday that Vinson, an Ohio native, has been traveling in recent days.

She was aboard Frontier Airlines Flight 1143 from Cleveland to Dallas/Fort Worth on Monday, officials said. The CDC is trying to track down all 132 people on that flight to make sure they’re OK. <New York Post, link>

This is what it has come to, folks: you are traveling between Cleveland and Dallas on a plane and you may just be taking your life in your hands sitting next to an Ebola patient.

Where is the federal government in all of this? Nowhere.

Who is protecting the homeland? No one, and certainly not Barack Hussein Ebola, I mean Obama, I mean Ebola.

Oh, and there is this:

Freiden also said that during her self-monitoring, Vinson recorded a temperature of 99.5 — just under the 100.4-degree threshold that would have required her to seek medical attention​, but which definitely should have kept her off an airliner​.

Ummmmmm….

When you read something like this, don’t you wonder whether Americans at this point have a kind of death wish for the nation as a whole? A nurse who cared for an Ebola patient develops a fever, is allowed to travel, gets on a plane, interacts with her family, and then gets on a plane again and flies home…

It certainly seems to me that we are headed for an Ebola outbreak inside the homeland, and if you think, as Jon Stewart apparently does, that this is an unwarranted and melodramatic reaction to the events unfolding in Texas (and now Ohio…..) all I can say is: you are not welcome in my secret hideaway location and good luck to you.

Leon Panetta, mr. Obama’s former Secretary of Defense and a lifelong Liberal Democrat, could not keep silent anymore about how Barack Obama lost Iraq after George Bush won it.

…it was clear to me — and many others — that withdrawing all our forces would endanger the fragile stability then barely holding Iraq together. Privately, the various leadership factions in Iraq all confided that they wanted some US forces to remain as a bulwark against sectarian violence…

PanettaThe story goes on (Yahoo news, link):

The undersecretary of defense for policy, Michele Flournoy, the number three-ranking civilian at the Pentagon, pressed the argument with the full backing of the top brass, including the chiefs of all the armed forces, he said.

But the President’s team at the White House pushed back, and the differences occasionally became heated. Flournoy argued our case, and those on our side viewed the White House as so eager to rid itself of Iraq that it was willing to withdraw rather than lock in arrangements that would preserve our influence and interests…

How does Panetta feel about Barack Obama’s leadership and commitment to the USA’s strategic interests?

To my frustration, the White House coordinated the negotiations but never really led them.

What a surprise (not…) — Barack Obama “never really led…”.

And of course that phrase “never really led them” could be applied to many of mr. Obama’s derelictions of duty.

Leon Panetta is experiencing a full-onset Barack-Hussein-Ebola condition, in which he feels the misery of having worked for a man whose decisions and policies have been an unmitigated American and global disaster and yet his name is on many of them.

To this day, I believe that a small US troop presence in Iraq could have effectively advised the Iraqi military on how to deal with al-Qaeda’s resurgence and the sectarian violence that has engulfed the country.

Sure, Leon, you have ended up on the right side of history, and welcome to the party.

The question is, What took you so long?

The New England Patriots and their “legendary” quarterback Tom Brady are off to a terrible start this year and NFL bloviators are trying to make sense of it.

Just how badly is Brady playing this year?

Really badly:

Through four games, he’s statistically the worst quarterback in the AFC East. Just so we’re clear, that list includes Geno Smith, Ryan Tannehill and EJ Manuel, who was just benched for Kyle Orton.

And that’s not just some conventional-stats anomaly; according to Football Outsiders’ advanced metrics, Brady ranks 33rd in total QB value ahead of only Geno Smith, Josh McCown and Chad Henne. One is in his second season and the other two are journeymen. <CBS Sports, link>

Tom Brady feeling blue

His former teammate and fellow (fake) Superbowl champion Rodney Harrison, now a broadcaster, does not think Brady is at fault, but rather blames Brady’s wide receivers instead:

“Tom Brady can still play,” he said during an appearance on WEEI, via ESPNBoston.com. “But when you surround him — there’s a reason why Brandon LaFell was let go [by Carolina]. He’s not a great player. He’s a young guy, and he has to make his way in this league…”

He’s goes on to bash a few other Patriots, but we hardly need to read on, do we?

Because we know the real reason for Brady’s troubles.

The Superbowl rings weigh on him in just the same way the evil ring of Sauron weighed on Frodo Baggins in Lord of the Rings.

title-slide-tom-brady-and-the-return-of-the-rings

This is because Brady knows that he cheated in three Superbowls, along with all the other Patriots of those years, and that since the cheating was exposed, he and they have won exactly zero Superbowls.

The sad truth is that they cannot win the Big Game because they are not the superstars that they have pretended to be.

And Brady knows it.

And so I will repeat myself again:

GO, TOM BRADY, TO MOUNT DOOM, AND GIVE BACK YOUR FRAUDULENT SUPERBOWL RINGS AND REPENT FOR YOUR CHEATING IN THREE SUPERBOWLS.

Only then, Frodo Brady Baggins, will you have a chance at winning your first Superbowl and wearing a true Superbowl ring.

Until then, you will suffer, dear Baggins, you will suffer.

The federal government has one duty above all else: protecting the nation from threats, both foreign and domestic.

Under Barack Obama, our sovereignty has been threatened almost continuously, but as of this week perhaps more egregiously than ever before: a man who had been in Liberia and exposed to the deadly Ebola virus was allowed to fly back home to Dallas Texas.

This is absolute INSANITY.

I cannot comprehend this.

And of course, today, we see this news:

DALLAS (Reuters) – Up to 100 people may have had contact with the first person diagnosed with Ebola in the United States, and four people were quarantined in a Dallas apartment where sheets and other items used by the man were put in sealed plastic bags to prevent infection.

Health officials said on Thursday that 12 to 18 people had direct contact with the patient, who flew to Texas from Liberia via Brussels and Washington two weeks ago, and they in turn had contact with scores of others. <Yahoo Finance, link>

I guess the powers that be don’t care if we have a virulent outbreak inside our own borders.

What is going on here?

You think there’s no threat? Susan Rice certainly doesn’t see any threat.

How about his little bit of news in the same story:

By Sunday, he needed an ambulance to return to the same hospital after vomiting on the ground outside the apartment complex.

Our country is under assault, for real.
