Ebola Re-Emerges In Liberia

Via Reuters:

Liberia confirmed a third Ebola case on Thursday, nearly two months after it was declared Ebola free, and officials said they were investigating whether the disease had spread through animals before resurfacing.

Dr Moses Massaquoi, case management team leader for Liberia’s Ebola task force, said the three villagers who had tested positive for the disease “have a history of having had dog meat together.” Dog meat is commonly eaten in Liberia.

The first new Liberian sufferer, 17-year-old Abraham Memaigar, died on Sunday in the village of Nedowein, about 50 km (30 miles) from the capital Monrovia. Two others have since tested positive in the village.

Some locals said Memaigar and others in the village had recently dug up and eaten a dead dog.

It has not been proved that dogs can carry the virus, although humans have been infected by eating monkey flesh in past outbreaks. A number of West African nations have banned the consumption of bush meat as a precaution.

Greece Out Of Money By Weekend?

greece2_3362747b

Via The Telegraph:

Greece is sliding into a full-blown national crisis as the final cash reserves of the banking system evaporate by the hour and swathes of industry start to shut down, precipitating the near disintegration of the ruling coalition.

Business leaders have been locked in talks with the Bank of Greece, pleading for the immediate release of emergency liquidity funds (ELA) to cover food imports and pharmaceutical goods before the tourist sector hits a brick wall.

Officials say the central bank will release the funds as soon as Friday, but this is a stop-gap measure at best. “We are on a war footing in this country,” said Yanis Varoufakis, the Greek finance minister.

Just blowing smoke?

Via The Hill:

The Vatican may end its investments in fossil fuels but has not committed to doing so, a top Catholic Church official said.

The news comes weeks after Pope Francis released an encyclical urging the world to fight climate change and is likely to disappoint activists who want the Vatican to set a better example in that fight, The Guardian reported.

“I think that the Vatican bank may think of initiatives which are at the core of this change,” Flaminia Giovanelli, who serves on the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Peace and Justice, said at a Wednesday news conference, according to The Guardian.

“So we will see in the future … [divestment] may be considered by the Vatican,” she continued.

CDC Official Breaks Ranks Calls Obama Worst President, Amateur, Marxist After Influx of Illegal Alien Minors…

CDC EMAIL

CDC doesn’t have a private server to hide their emails.

Via Judicial Watch

Following the influx of illegal immigrant minors from Central America, an official at the federal agency charged with protecting public health describes Barack Obama as “the worst pres we have ever had,” an “amateur” and “Marxist,” according to internal emails obtained by Judicial Watch.

JW got the records as part of an investigation into the Center for Disease Control’s (CDC) activation of an Emergency Operations Center (EOC) to deal with the barrage of illegal alien minors last summer. Tens of thousands of Central Americans came into the United States through the Mexican border and contagious diseases—many considered to be eradicated in the U.S.—became a tremendous concern. The CDC, which operates under the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), responded by opening an emergency facility designed to monitor and coordinate response activities to eminent public health threats.

This special emergency division was created after the 2001 terrorist attacks and has responded to more than 50 public health threats, including hurricanes, food borne disease outbreaks, the 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemic and the Haiti cholera outbreak. Scientists from across the CDC are brought together to analyze, validate, and efficiently exchange information during a public health emergency and connect with response partners. The EOC also coordinates the deployment of CDC staff and the procurement and management of all equipment and supplies that agency responders may need during their deployment.[…]

The CDC records obtained by JW this week include email exchanges between agency officials directly involved in the activation of the EOC to handle the health threats created by the influx of illegal alien minors last summer. In an email dated June 9, 2014, CDC Logistics Management Specialist George Roark wrote to CDC Public Health Advisor William Adams that “no country in the world would allow” the influx. Adams replies that “in ten years or less, they’ll all be voting…Commander’s intent…” Roark fires back by describing Obama as “the worst pres we have ever had…he truly is ‘the amateur’ but a Marxist too.”

VA School Board Votes To Teach ‘Gender Identity’ In Seventh Grade

Like 7th graders don’t have enough on which to concentrate.

(CNSNews.com) – Beginning in seventh grade, public school students in the Virginia suburbs outside Washington, D.C., will be taught about “sexual orientation terms,” including heterosexuality, homosexuality, bisexuality – “and the gender identity term transgender,” according to a newly adopted sex education curriculum.

The Fairfax County School Board voted last week to adopt the controversial new “Family Life Education Curriculum.”

The meeting was crowded with angry parents, many of whom spoke out against the sudden changes.

Andrea Lafferty, a Fairfax County parent and president of the Traditional Values Coalition, spoke at the board meeting, asking parents: “Do you want gender identity to be introduced to seventh grade?” Parents in the audience shouted, “No!”

Last month, as CNSNews.com reported, the Fairfax County School Board voted to make “gender identity” a protected class, and Lafferty mentioned that as well.

Moonbat Salon Writer Goes On Rant Against Polygamist Who Wants Same Marriage Rights As Gay Community…

Nathan Collier Still_0.jpg

How dare another group ride the coattails of the gay movement? Previous Polygamy story.

Via NewsBusters

It appears the writers over at Salon have an interesting definition of “marriage equality.” Gay marriage proponent and radical feminist Mary Elizabeth Williams showed her true colors on the issue today by claiming “fringe groups”, like those who practice polygamy, should not have access to new freedoms detailed in the recent SCOTUS case which granted gay couples marriage recognition nationwide.

Less than a week after liberals flooded the airways and social media with rainbows and declarations of “Love Wins,” liberal media outlets like Salon are already narrowing that message. Last week the argument was that you have a right to marry whoever makes you happy- only a narrow-minded . This week it must fit the agenda. And if you’re a conservative who doesn’t fit that agenda, then you’ll not only be denied the same access newly allowed to gays, you’ll also be subject to harsh opinions like this from liberal activists:

Well, conservatives, here it is, just as you predicted. Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria… And on cue, here comes Nathan Collier — a man who describes himself on Facebook as “an American, conservative, Constitutionalist, capitalist, (formerly) Christian, heterosexual middle aged white male of Southern heritage” — and his lovely two brides Victoria and Christine, asking for official recognition of their union.

Woman Who Claimed Harassment From Christian Neighbors For Being Having A ‘Gay Yard’, Accused Of Faking It For Donations

Relentlessly False…

Via Daily Mail:

A Baltimore mom who raised over $43,000 after claiming her Christian neighbors threatened her over her ‘relentlessly gay’ front yard has now been accused of contriving the plot as part of a GoFundMe scam.

Several discrepancies have surfaced in the story of Julie Baker, a widowed mother-of-four who lives on the outskirts of the city and identifies as bisexual.

Baker said she received a note signed by ‘A Concerned Home Owner’ that attacked her colorful yard – which used lamps to spell out ‘love’ and ‘ohana’, a Hawaiian word for ‘family’ – for ‘becoming Relenetlessly Gay!’

She then launched a campaign to make the yard ‘even more relentlessly gay’ and received $43,396 in online donations in just 14 days. However inconsistencies and suspicions have since been raised.

Baker then abruptly closed the account, saying she had raised ‘more than plenty’ of money.

Agitator Defaces Portrait Of Former SC Democrat Governor As ‘Violent Racist’ At Winthrop University…

Winthrop

Another game of guess-the-political party.

Via Rock Hill Herald

Maintenance crews were still cleaning up from an overnight break-in at Winthrop’s Tillman Hall Thursday morning when, in an unrelated incident, someone vandalized a portrait of the building’s namesake.

A person wrote “violent racist” in red paint across the portrait of Benjamin Tillman about 9:30 a.m., according to an email from President Daniel Mahony, who is in his second day on the job. That person was seen running from the building.

Officials removed the painting and a placard with information about Benjamin Tillman. The damage to the portrait is being assessed. It’s unclear whether the portrait can or will be restored and placed back inside the building.

By Thursday afternoon, no arrests were made. A Winthrop Campus Police report states the damage is estimated at $3,000.

“Ben Tillman was inarguably a racist, however, that fact does not justify vandalism,” Mahony wrote. “Campus police are conducting an investigation of the incident and anyone found responsible will be held accountable.”

According to Winthrop police, around 9:40 a.m., an employee from the university’s president’s office was on her way to the restroom when she spotted a “thin, white male, wearing a green ball cap, standing in front of the portrait of Mr. Tillman.”

The suspect, the employee told police, was “acting odd” and then she saw him painting on Tillman’s portrait. Officials say the vandalism consisted of “violent racist” scrawled in red paint, with an arrow pointing at Tillman’s head.

The suspect left through the building’s front door. A perimeter search and search of trash cans on campus provided no leads.

The incident came just hours after someone apparently broke a first-floor window to gain access to the building during the night. Nothing was reported stolen or damaged after that incident, which university spokesman Jeff Perez said is unrelated to the vandalism.

Tillman’s portrait is one of two situated near the main door of Tillman Hall. The other is Robert C. Winthrop, who helped found the school in 1886. Tillman was instrumental in Winthrop and Clemson University’s founding.

The Winthrop vandalism occurred just two days after someone vandalized a statue of Tillman in Columbia with a red paintball. That statue faces a Confederate flag and Confederate monument, around which security has increased following protests after the slayings of nine people June 17 at a historic black church in Charleston.

Tillman, a noted white supremacist who advocated lynching any black who tried to vote, served as governor and as a U.S. senator from 1890 to 1918.

US Air Force Cancels July 4 Celebrations At UK Bases Due To ‘Threat Assessments’…

Sad day when the American military cannot provide security on a military installation.

Via Stars and Stripes

The U.S. Air Force has canceled 4th of July events in Britain due to “local threat assessments,” it was announced Thursday.

A statement on the website of Royal Air Force Mildenhall said RAFs Lakenheath and Mildenhall called off celebrations set for Friday and Saturday at Royal Air Force Feltwell.

“The decision was made due to the most current local threat assessments. The base continually surveys the security environment alongside host nation counterparts and must take appropriate measures based on those assessments,” the statement said.

The statement quoted Col. David Eaglin, 48th Fighter Wing vice commander, as saying the decision was taken in the interest of safety.

“We apologize for any inconvenience this cancellation has caused, and we will continue to work with our UK counterparts — both military and civilian — to make sure we keep our airmen and the local communities safe,” he said.

No further details were released. The announcement comes as security officials in the U.S. and elsewhere have warned the public to be alert to possible attacks by the Islamic State or its sympathizers during the ongoing Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

FBI Has Made At Least 30 ISIS Arrests On U.S. Soil So Far This Year, Set Up 56 Command Centers To Combat Them Prior To July 4

Via Daily Mail:

FBI agents have made at least 30 arrests on US soil this year as they try to combat the murderous reach of ISIS and its warped followers, Daily Mail Online can disclose.

Officials revealed this week that the Islamic terror group has a foothold in all 50 states as it continues to target disaffected Americans through its torrent of online propaganda and slick videos of barbaric beheadings and mutilations.

The stark warning comes days after ISIS-inspired gunman Saif Rezgui unleashed horror on at a Tunisian beach resort, killing 39 vacationers and wounding dozens more.

The FBI has reportedly set up command centers in each of its 56 field offices in case extremists try to mark the July 4 weekend by unleashing similar carnage here in the U.S. American ISIS ‘recruits’ to date have included schoolgirls, a young nurse, a pizza shop boss and even a National Guard soldier who hatched a plan to gun down 120 of his own colleagues.

Obama: Republicans Are “Mean”…

…and we’re back in the fifth grade.

LA CROSSE, Wis. (AP) — Wading into presidential politics, President Barack Obama on Thursday promoted his brand of middle-class economics by drawing sharp contrasts with “mean” Republicans in the state where the GOP governor was preparing to enter the vast 2016 presidential field. […]

Republicans in Congress have cast dozens of votes to repeal the law, and they have vowed to keep trying.

“Every single one of them is still obsessed with repealing the Affordable Care Act, despite the fact that by every measure it’s working,” Obama said. “It just seems a little mean to say that you don’t want to provide coverage” to millions of people who’ve gained it under the law “and you got nothing to replace it with.”

“We are thrilled that Secretary Clinton will join us to speak to the thousands of Latino community leaders who will gather in Kansas City next week,” said Janet Murguía, President and CEO of NCLR. “We look forward to hearing about her vision for the country and her thoughts on the issues of greatest concern to our community.”

Baltimore Hits Midyear Mark At 144 Homicides

B more in Baltimore…make that 145.

Via Baltimore Sun:

Danielle Wilder said she has moved from her Baltimore home but isn’t telling anyone — even family members — where she lives now.

“The next thing, one of us will be dead. We don’t know. We have moved, and I have not given my address to family members. We just don’t know,” she said.

Wilder lost her sister, Jennifer Jeffrey-Browne, 31, and nephew, 7-year-old Kester “Tony” Browne, last month when the mother and son were found shot to death in their Southwest Baltimore home.

The Brownes are two of the city’s 144 homicide victims in the first six months of the year, a 48 percent increase over last year. Much of the surge in violence has come in the aftermath of the April 19 death of Freddie Gray, which touched off protests, rioting, looting and arson in the city.

More than half of this year’s killings — 74 — have occurred in the past two months.

Hillary’s Secret War: She Approved Arms For Terrorist Enemies Of The United States

Screen Shot 2015-07-02 at 4.36.57 PM

Judge Andrew Napolitano gives a very clear recitation of what she has done and why she should never be President. Please share with anyone tempted to vote for her.

Via Washington Times:

In the course of my work, I am often asked by colleagues to review and explain documents and statutes. Recently, in conjunction with my colleagues Catherine Herridge and Pamela Browne, I read the transcripts of an interview Ms. Browne did with a man named Marc Turi, and Ms. Herridge asked me to review emails to and from State Department and congressional officials during the years when Hillary Clinton was the secretary of state.

What I saw has persuaded me beyond a reasonable doubt and to a moral certainty that Mrs. Clinton provided material assistance to terrorists and lied to Congress in a venue where the law required her to be truthful. Here is the backstory.

Mr. Turi is a lawfully licensed American arms dealer. In 2011, he applied to the Departments of State and Treasury for approvals to sell arms to the government of Qatar. Qatar is a small Middle Eastern country whose government is so entwined with the U.S. government that it almost always will do what American government officials ask of it.

In its efforts to keep arms from countries and groups that might harm Americans and American interests, Congress has authorized the Departments of State and Treasury to be arms gatekeepers. They can declare a country or group to be a terrorist organization, in which case selling or facilitating the sale of arms to it is a felony. They also can license dealers to sell.

Mr. Turi sold hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of arms to the government of Qatar, which then, at the request of American government officials, were sold, bartered or given to rebel groups in Libya and Syria. Some of the groups that received the arms were on the U.S. terror list. Thus, the same State and Treasury Departments that licensed the sales also prohibited them.

How could that be?

That’s where Mrs. Clinton’s secret State Department and her secret war come in. Because Mrs. Clinton used her husband’s computer server for all of her email traffic while she was the secretary of state, a violation of three federal laws, few in the State Department outside her inner circle knew what she was up to.

Now we know.

Maine Mother Charged After Letting 7-Year-Old Daughter Play Across The Street “Unattended”…

I’m sure the state could do a much better job of raising her.

Via EAG News:

A Maine mother faces child endangerment charges for allowing her daughter to play at the park across the street from her house without her constant supervision.

Nicole Jensen told WMTW she often allows her three children to play at the park a few hundred feet from her house and parents in the neighborhood make a coordinated effort to watch each other’s children. She watches from her front porch.

But when Jensen’s 7-year-old daughter was playing in the park by herself last week, someone at the park called 911 to report she was unattended and police intervened.

But instead of simply walking the child home, police tried unsuccessfully to call Jensen, then hauled the girl to the police station when the mother didn’t immediately answer her phone, according to the Personal Liberty blog.
