Ebola and the Enterovirus — Preventable Plagues?

Right now two plagues are a scourge across America — Ebola and the Non-Polio Enterovirus D-68 .  While our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims of these highly infectious and deadly diseases making their rounds around the USA, two notions popped into my mind. First, how in the hell did Ebola get in the United States ( we know how , technically, but what the heck!) and why are we sending thousands of US troops into Ebola ravaged areas ?  That’s really out of whack. Second, the Enterovirus has impacted people all over the country killing children in both New Jersey and Rhode Island , my two home states, while mysteriously infecting 538 people in 43 states (as of last Friday).  On this point, I feel oddly singular:  Has anyone else noticed that right around the time when those tens of thousands of illegal alien children sent to all 50 states began going to our public schools, this mysterious respiratory virus struck in 43 states simultaneously, and mostly to youngsters?  Seriously, has no one else noticed that? So, we’re sending thousands of American soldiers into Ebola infested areas while our CDC says a quarantine will somehow make things worse , and we’re whistling passed at least two little kid’s graves because we don’t want to entertain the possibility that the administration’s no borders policy has let loose a deadly virus in 43 states. When did America become a third world country?  Our lax immigration policies may be directly related to serious public health issues and someone needs to be held responsible for the preventable aspects of these diseases.

Crisis Prone Day: Gaza Invasion, Malaysian Air Crash, Persistent Border Issues

It’s just one of those days. Israel invades Gaza .  After ten days of on-and-off ceasefires and peace talks, the Israelis decided that a blunt force trauma to the Hamas terrorist infrastructure would be the best move to secure their border.  Can’t blame Israel — they even announced days ago that they were coming in order to limit civilian casualties. Sharing the headlines this afternoon was a Malaysian airliner which was shot down by who-knows-who over Ukraine killing 295, including 23 Americans.  Was it the Russians? a Ukrainian splinter group?  a terrorist infiltrator? Who knows!  The chaos in Eastern Ukraine has made anything possible.  Tragically, it hasn’t been such a good year for flying Malaysian Air. And don’t forget the escalating crisis on the US Southern border ( though given the latest polls the administration would be happy if we did ).  On this issue I think it’s safe to say that what we are experiencing is tantamount to an invasion — another self-inflicted wound to our national security which the administration will be glad to see relegated to the back burner for a few days while the other crises explode. This one’s not going anywhere though — can’t wait until September when school districts across the country will have to account for thousands of new LEP (Limited English Proficient) students in the Fall, or in January when the Obamacare employer mandate kicks in to the chagrin of native workers who employers may lay them off in light of all the cheap underground laborers they can exploit instead.  Those issues should go over just peachy with the American people. I’d feel better about things if we had competent people with America’s best interest at heart running things.

In the opening of Megyn Kelly’s Fox News Channel show on Tuesday night, Rep.-Elect David Jolly (R-FL) touted the merits of his Florida 13th congressional district win. He reacted to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s downplaying of the Democrats chances in the contest and argued there’s not much nationally to be drawn from the outcome.

Instead he insisted it was a local election. “Well, I think my new colleague Nancy Pelosi might be engaging in some spin control this evening. I will tell you this — Megyn I will tell you this, we can’t draw a mandate from this race. It was a very closely run race. And I don’t know the final percentages – this what not an overwhelming victory.

What was important is that a Republican in a district that President Obama had won twice, a first time candidate going up against a hand-picked candidate from out of town, picked by the national party, the national Democrats with all of the money behind her from the beginning, they were wrong with their message.

They were wrong on the issues. The reason we won this race is because we stood on issues and for a message that was right for our community and right for the future of our country.”

Three Norwegian Journalists Harassed, Stripped of Gear by Russians at Crimea Border

More journalists are under attack in Crimea. Three journalists from the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation (NRK), the country’s public station, were subjected to harassment and robbery at the Crimean border. January Espen Kruse, Kristian Elster, and Bengt Kristiansen encountered 15 to 20 armed men in black masks and unmarked uniforms at a checkpoint.

Elster said the gunmen held them for 30-45 minutes. – The atmosphere was extremely aggressive. They stood there with masks and sharp-charged weapons and accused us of being spies, says Jan Espen Kruse. – They took us three different PCs, all we had filmed, floppy disks, USB flash drives, and a small camera. There was no question of getting something in return, they should have everything we had done the shooting, he said further.

The gunmen also took all of their protective equipment, such as helmets. The journalists had to travel by land because pro-Russian forces completely took over Crimea’s airport and halted all travel to the peninsula except for flights to and from Moscow.

Kruse said even though a few of the men wore uniforms from Ukraine’s disbanded Berkut riot police and unmarked uniforms, he knows these were Russian forces: “The people manning these checkpoints are Russian soldiers without any kind of insignia; they’re doing whatever they like,” he said. “The Russians deny that these are their forces, but the checkpoints are fully equipped with armoured personnel carriers, lots of soldiers and trucks, and they have dug trenches in the terrain.

There’s a major offensive underway here and there’s nobody but the Russians behind it.” After the men got through, they went through a checkpoint manned by Ukrainian soldiers. They were able to pass without trouble. On Monday, Radio Free Europe reported there are at least five journalists and Ukrainian activists missing in Crimea. They also said there are numerous unconfirmed reports of journalists being held at checkpoints.

CPAC Opener has Standing O for Christie

US Attorney Chris Christie CPAC Opener has Standing O for Christie

U.S. Attorney, Governor-elect of New Jersey (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

That title itself tells me everything I need to know about the value of the “C” in CPAC these days.  They also had a standing ovation for Mitch McConnell, who needed props to elicit such a response ( please donate to his primary challenger, Matt Bevin, and finally get Mitch to retire ).

At least they saved one ovation for Ted Cruz . Of course, nearly everything Chris Christie says either insults my intelligence or pisses me off.  He represents the main problem with the GOP in my eyes.  He’s a typical Northeast Liberal Republican tailor-made to lose a general election (aka, the perfect Establishment GOP candidate). I actually live in New Jersey and can say that our economy was mostly better under Jon Corzine than under Christie.  That’s an objective statement where property taxes are concerned .

Christie adopted Obamacore Common Core to take Obama-bucks, raised tolls across the state, took temporary Obamacare Medicaid funds when he didn’t have to, agrees with nearly all aspects of the surveillance state, loves gun control, embraces the DREAM Act, errs on the side of big government every chance he gets, and of course the embrace .

So when Christie gets an ovation from CPAC , I need to ask: how much Kool Aid were they serving in the ballroom? are they just being polite? are they afraid of road construction in front of their busy bridges if he gets elected President? being the first day of CPAC, were they just in an ovating kind of mood?

There were two pull-quotes from his speech: “Republican governors in this country have stood up and done things, not just talked about them.” Too bad most of the things Christie did were statist-oriented, big government in nature which will hurt New Jersey in the long run. But this one roiled me: “Let us come out of here resolved not only to stand for our principles, but let’s come out of this conference resolved to win elections again.”  I hadn’t noticed all those conservatives who didn’t want to win elections.

I did, however, notice lots of Establishment types for amnesty, gun control, and other Democrat issues who actually lost elections and depressed base turnout.  Maybe he means those types?  Nah!  He is that type:  a total establishment blowhard.
