Roger Simon Skewers Obama Ebola Incompetence

Author and Academy Award nominated screenwriter Roger Simon has a great column at skewering the Obama administration’s handling of  Ebola and other ongoing crises  in way that makes you want to cry — or hide under the covers.

He notes that after millions knew of the hatchet attack by a “quasi-Islamo-lunatic” on a New York City cop, yesterday, Oct. 23, an administration representative queried about it was unaware it happened.

Regarding the matter of  Dr. Craig Spencer,  Simon writes was that part of the latest CDC protocol or the pilot for a television series — “Bowling for Ebola”?  In this new reality show/game you have to guess which ball doesn’t have infected fluids from the previous contestant inside its little holes.   The winner gets to go on but the loser, well… you know…

Spencer 33, returned to New York on Oct. 17  from the West African nation of Guinea where he had treated Ebola patients.  He spent the next seven days riding subways, bowling, using the Uber taxi service, and spending time with his girlfriend before reporting a fever on Oct. 23 and being admitted to Bellevue Hospital Center for diagnosis and treatment.

So what did Obama do on Oct. 23? He hung out at Sen. Jay Rockefeller’s (D-W Va) mansion where he was the guest of honor at a $32,400 a plate fundraiser for the Democrat (Little Guy LOL) Party.

The mansion, by the way, is an $18 million palace in Washington D.C., a long way from coal fields and mountain music of the people, Rockefeller — who is retiring this term — allegedly represents.

When our little ride ends Obama supporters are going to look at their votes for the man about the same way the Germans who voted for Hitler did in June 1945.

Anyway, kudos to Roger Simon.

Purdon Ebola Hoax Spreads Facebook Panic

If it’s on the internet it must be true, is the punchline to a joke that is taken to heart much too rarely.

This story about an Ebola-caused quarantine of Purdon, Texas  got 340,000 Facebook shares, reports

It is entirely made up., the perpetrator of the hoax, calls itself a satirical site — when caught anyway. There is nothing to indicate it as such on the pages it publishes.

And there is nothing funny about its content i.e. Those who had immediate contact with the infected parties, including several children who shared classes at a local elementary school, have all reportedly been transported to the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital, where they are being closely monitored for signs of illness.

Ho ho ho.

It’s no different than the town jackass phoning in a false fire report to get himself some attention.

It is no different than a Delaware State professor blaming Ebola on the CIA.

NationalReport deserves attention and publicity. The entire world should know that it is the town jackass of the internet. Those affiliated with it should know that it is best to leave off of their resumes any connection to it when seeking new employment.

Houston Government Endangers Liberty

Houston Government Endangers Liberty
By Chris Freind

Houston, you’ve got a problem.

Based on disturbing events in Texas’ largest city, it’s clear that Ebola is a distant second in the “greatest threat” category.

That honor goes to political extremist Annise Parker, the mayor of Houston.

In a move that is anathema to religious liberty and freedom of speech, Houston, under Parker’s direction, has issued wide-ranging subpoenas to five pastors who attempted to overturn the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance (HERO). An “anti-discrimination” law, HERO is also known as the “Bathroom Bill” because a provision allows transgender people to use either male or female restrooms, which the pastors opposed.

After HERO became law in May, the pastors helped gather more than 50,000 signatures to place the issue on a ballot referendum. Since only 17,000 signatures were necessary, it appeared Houstonians, not the mayor and city council, would ultimately decide the fate of the ordinance.

Not so fast.

Even though Houston’s city secretary certified the signatures, city Attorney David Feldman deemed 38,000 — yes, thirty-eight thousand — to be invalid, killing the referendum initiative. Not only do some legal experts contend Feldman acted without legal authority, but much of his reasoning is flawed (such as circulators having to be registered voters, a requirement that has been consistently invalidated by federal judges nationwide).

A lawsuit filed by several citizens challenging the city’s action led to subpoenas of massive scope, demanding privileged information from the pastors in 17 different categories. According to the Houston Press, subpoenaed information included:

–Anything related to Parker, Feldman, HERO or any HERO drafts, and any copies or drafts for the petition to repeal the ordinance;

–Anything related to “the topics of equal rights, civil rights, homosexuality, or gender identity;”

–Any language related to rest room access or “any discussion about whether or how HERO does or does not impact rest room access;”

–Communication with anyone at the religious rights group Alliance Defending Freedom, which has criticized the ordinance.

–“All speeches, presentation, or sermons related to HERO, the Petition, Mayor Annise Parker, homosexuality, or gender identity prepared by, delivered by, revised by, or approved by your or in your possession.”

Hell, they might as well try to find out who killed JFK.

After heavy criticism, the mayor slightly revised the subpoenas, “removing” sermons, which means nothing since sermons are actually speeches, and Parker acknowledged some could still be fair game.

Let’s analyze:

1. None of the subpoenaed pastors are even party to the lawsuit against the city.

2. Parker’s rationale is, “We want the instructions on the petition process.” In other words, how the preachers instructed their congregants regarding the petition drive. The mayor claims that if preachers are politicking from the pulpit, sermons and other communications are fair game. Two problems:

First, this case is only supposed to be about whether there are enough valid signatures to warrant a referendum. The pastors’ viewpoints on the mayor and HERO are completely irrelevant.

Second, one needs to define “politicking.” It’s true that a preacher advocating the election of a particular candidate from the pulpit may place the tax status of his church in jeopardy. But there is nothing illegal about a religious organization advocating positions on various issues. That has been a time-honored tradition in America and, no pun intended, thank God for that.

For example, the push to outlaw slavery was rooted in northern churches as pastors encouraged their flocks to support the abolitionist cause. Same goes for much of the impetus behind the Civil Rights Movement.

America’s freedoms are supposed to prevent religious persecution by government. The actions of Mayor Parker fly directly in the face of that.

3. One has to ask, “Why?” Why is the mayor pushing these subpoenas? Does she have a hidden agenda? One can reasonably conclude that it may be an attempt to intimidate religious leaders — who face jail time for contempt of court if they don’t comply — into accepting the radical agenda of a political ideologue hell-bent on social engineering. In other words, flat-out political retribution.

If the mayor believes so strongly in the ordinance, she should do the honorable thing: Agree to the referendum. If it passes, great. If not, Parker should start doing what the people elected her to do: govern a world-class city, albeit one with many problems.

4. This case has the possibility of setting groundbreaking legal precedent. If the mayor’s actions are upheld, America’s unique freedoms are in mortal danger. The door will be opened for more rights to be obliterated — and once that door is opened, it will never close.

This isn’t a Republican/Democrat, conservative/liberal issue, as its outcome will affect every American. Even supporters of the HERO ordinance should be extremely concerned, for anyone who thinks attacks on free speech and religious liberties are limited to one side of the political spectrum is dangerously misinformed.

Just as those on the Right would be wise to accept the right to burn the flag or protest military funerals, no matter how tasteless, the Left should be up in arms about this frontal assault on the liberties that allow us to express who we are and what we believe, without fear of government intrusion.

Perhaps more than any other state, Texas knows a thing or two about fighting oppressors and protecting rights. So here’s hoping they take the steer by the horns and throw the subpoenas right where they belong — in the trash.

Otherwise, start saying your prayers.

John Kane Neglects Secret Daughter

The Democrat candidate for the 26th Pennsylvania Senate District has a secret daughter whom he has been neglecting it seems.

The Philadelphia Daily News reports that Kristin Holgerson, 32, of Maryland has posted this on Facebook:

DELCO Friends & Family: In November you’re going to have to vote for a person for State Senate seat. One of these men is not who he says he is. He claims to be a family man, launching his campaign with a commercial with all of his children in it. Well, that commercial is missing someone. Me. As some of you already know, I never had a relationship with my father. I knew his name at a young age and around 20 I met him for the first and last time. After our meeting, despite telling me I could call him at any time, he changed his number and I haven’t heard from him since.

Apparently what set Ms. Holgerson off was Kane’s commercials portraying himself as a dedicated blue collar family man.

Are we really surprised?

Kane has an income of $277,000 from work related to managing the affairs of Plumber’s Local 690 of Philadelphia and Vicinity and $119,213 comes from co-chairing the union’s vacation, a job which he has told the IRS only requires from him one hour per week.

How is that anything but an indication of self-centered arrogance and shlock?

How is that anything other than proof positive he cares only for himself and doesn’t give a rat’s tail about the union guys who chip in to have him manage their affairs?

Kane’s Republican opponent is Tom McGarrigle, a guy who owns a well-liked garage on Woodland Avenue in Springfield and by all accounts is a dedicated blue collar family man.

We have been told a story will be running in the Delaware County Daily Times.
