Mentally ill Marine veteran Kirk Beckwith Cowart entered Salem High School in Virginia Beach, Virginia, Thursday morning and took to the stage in the school’s auditorium. That he was able to slip into the school undetected and undiscovered for an unknown amount of time was disturbing enough. That he was armed with a hatchet and …read more

Targeting the Anti-Gun Indoctrination Party

By Lee Culpepper

Thanks to the last 50 years of public education, millions of Americans no longer appreciate the difference between facts and feelings. Consequently, when facts hurt their feelings, many Americans just brush off the irrefutable evidence and attack anyone who points out the facts that expose illogical feelings.

When it comes to supporters of the Second Amendment, we see this irrational behavior play out among pro-gun Americans who religiously support the Democrat Party. Now, before anyone feels …read more

Ebola Update 10-16-14

Ebola_virus_em

 

The Ebola virus in the United States seems far beyond the control of the Obama Administration’s Centers for Disease Control and so far, health care workers and the economy seem to be taking the punishment for it.

On NBC’s “Today Show” this morning, Texas Presbyterian Nurse Briana Aguirre told host Matt Lauer that she watched fellow healthcare workers “violate basic principles of nursing” and that the hospital had not provided any protocols on the handling of an Ebola patient. When they contacted the hospital’s infectious disease control office to ask what the protocols were, Briana said, they were told that “they didn’t know” and would have to get back to them.

Aguirre went on to say that the protective gear that they were given did not fully cover their exposed skin leaving their necks entirely vulnerable to splashes of bodily fluids.

For months Americans have been told by the President and his head of the CDC, Dr. Tom Frieden, that there were procedures in place and that the healthcare system and the CDC were ready to deal with Ebola cases – the public is struggling to believe them.

Just last week Dr. Frieden blamed nurses for failing to follow protocol. Listening to Nurse Aguirre’s interview this morning, it would appear as though protocols and equipment were neither in place nor trained upon.

Now, the CDC has instituted rapid response teams to fly out to hospitals where an Ebola case is suspected. With recent events, it may be too little, too late.

Two nurses have since been diagnosed with Ebola. Nina Pham and Amber Vinson. Both were exposed to Mr. Duncan, the Ebola patient at Texas Hospital that flew into the United States with the infection.

Nina was quarantined, but Amber was allowed by the CDC to fly on a commercial airliner after she contacted them to inform them that she had a fever – the first sign of an infection. The CDC is now frantically searching for all 132 people on that shared that flight with her.

Even the economy is not immune to this highly-infectious killer. While Europe’s debt issues and widespread deflation are one aspect, Ebola fears are helping to push the stock market into free-fall.

Since the CDC first confirmed the first U.S. case on September 30th, the DOW has lost about 900 points – over 5% of it’s value just.. gone. Today’s DOW futures show another 200+ point drop in the offering at open.

Airline stocks have been hammered despite rapidly dropping oil prices. Fuel is a huge input costs and a main driver of ticket prices. Investors expect a massive drop in people willing to fly due to the spread of the disease. The CDC allowing an Ebola-exposed nurse with a fever fly may just make that come true.

As Ebola fear escalates in the country, investors are concerned that people will avoid crowds like those at stores, malls, restaurants and tourist destinations. With the holiday shopping season just beginning to kick-up, the timing could be catastrophic for the American economy especially after the disappointing retail sales numbers from last month.

The only portions of the economy that seems to be getting a lift from the outbreak are retailers that sell biohazard suits, masks, prepping supplies, guns and ammo.

China: U.S. Must Pay to Reduce Global Emissions for Everyone

Shell refineryIn a stunning rebuke of Obama and the U.N., the world’s largest emitter of Co2 has basically told the rest of the world to pay up or shut up.

China basically ignored the U.N. meeting on climate, weather, or whatever… , but it did not prevent them from chastising the developed world for not paying their fair share (eerily familiar.)

As no Chinese representatives were present at the typically all-show and no-go event, an official letter was sent instead.

Carbon cutbacks by China and others , the reported document says, will be “dependent on the adequate finance and technology support provided by developed country parties.”

Guess Americans just need to quit whining and start signing checks.

Ok greenies, here’s your chance. If you want to save the world, start sending checks to the Chinese. We have every hope that you will get a result from the money you send to the Chinese government – about the same hope we have for the money we all send to our own government.

 

Gun Camera Footage from Syria Airstrikes

The Pentagon released gun camera footage from successful attacks on ISIS and Khorasan targets inside of Syria.

The first is a training barracks/residential area where fighters-in-training would be housed:

 

Here’s the complete video of the released airstrikes. Wade through the President’s political spin and catch several successful strikes by our brave military members.

President offers disrespectful ‘latte salute’ to marines

While exiting the presidential helicopter,  Marine One, Obama thought that properly saluting the marines guarding his exit was just a bit to troublesome.

Of course, the story is more complicated that the opening sentence. The President was forced to hold absolutely nothing in his left hand while he saluted the marines with his coffee-encumbered right.

The U.S. Navy Manual (the Marine Corps is part of the Navy) has a section entitled “Procedures for Saluting.” In it, there are listed a few reasons one may not properly salute:

e. In some situations, the salute is not appropriate. In general, do not salute when:
(1) Engaged in routine work when a salute would interfere.
(2) Indoors, except when under arms.
(3) Carrying articles with both hands or being otherwise so occupied as to make saluting impractical.
(4) The rendition of the salute is obviously inappropriate, such as in places of public assemblage such as
theaters or churches, and in public conveyances.

I am not sure if perhaps the routine work of disembarking his private, high-cost, tax-payer provided helicopter counts as (1) or if perhaps Mr. President is packing heat under that jacket so that (3) applies.

(3) Would only apply if “occupied” could be replaced with “thinking about golfing.”

Where an exception could be granted would be (4) as he is exiting a method of public.. oops, never mind. This conveyance is his and his only.

The key being that if an excusable consideration had occurred Obama could have just not saluted at all. Instead, he chose to give a half-hearted, disrespectful and nearly callous version of the military courtesy.

While some excuses will be made that one or more exceptions might apply to Obama’s faux-pas (hasn’t the media excused the other bunches of them), this one should be left to dangle around his scrawny neck.

Sure, he could claim to be too busy, have too much in his hands, be otherwise engaged in other work  or what have you. Our fighting men and women deserve the simple common courtesy of their commander letting them know that they are more than an afterthought – that they are worth his attention.

Can you just imaging the outrage if a marine, soldier, airmen or sailor saluted President Obama with  a cup of coffee in their hands – or not at all.

What is Khorasan

It appears that U.S. officials are taking a new terror group more seriously as a U.S.-led set of airstrikes hit ISIS and Khorasan Group targets in Syria this morning.

Khorasan is a jihadist group born of Al Queda leadership that has a similar, yet competing goal, as ISIS. The Khorasan Group desires the recreation of the ancient Persian province that once held the same name while ISIS is attempting to create a global Islamic state or Caliphate starting with the overthrow of Syria’s Asad and the government in Iraq.

Al-Fadhli

Al-Fadhli

Khorasan is headed by Muhsin al-Fadhli, who was the leader of Al Queda in Iran while it’s former head was detained by Iranian authorities.

Al-Fadhli moved to Syria after a re-shuffling of Al-Queda leadership where he has pulled together a group of Al-Queda members from across the globe – including Europe and the United States.

He was later joined by a group of Al Queda members including  logistics expert Abd Al-Rahman Muhammad al Juhni. Al Juhni was a senior member of Al Queda in Pakistan and specialized in running the courier network and moving money around.

Fadhli seems disinterested in the outcome of the Syrian conflict and may only be based there to hide under the confusion of the Syrian civil war while he completes the planning phase for Khorasan – a phase intelligence experts say is very near completion.

The Khorasan plans are reported to be focused on attacks on U.S. and European soil. These attacks would most-likely be carried out by home grown terrorists recruited by Khorasan’s significant and effective social media efforts.

U.S. officials pointed at an imminent threat of terrorist attacks on the United States as partial justification for the airstrikes on Syria that began this morning. Whether Al Fadhli and his Khorasan Group associates have been nuetralized by today’s strikes is currently unknown.

 

Airstrikes Begin in Syria

Map of airsrtikes in SyriaThe first wave of United States attacks against ISIS and The Khorasan Group in Syria began early Tuesday morning.

The airstrikes hit 14 ISIS and Khorasan targets in Syria including command and control centers, supply caches and training facilities.

Aircraft from five Arab nations reportedly assisted with the strikes, but no European allies were involved.

The air assault began with cruise missiles, bombers, predator/reaper UAVs and fighter aircraft targeting the ISIS stronghold of Raqqa, Syria early on Tuesday.

U.S. officials said planes from Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Jordan, Bahrain and Qatar were also involved in the mission.

Whitehouse Fence-Jumper Reportedly on Anti-Depressents

white houseOmar Gonzalez hopped the White House grounds fence, got into the building and reportedly even gained access to the Presidential Residence before Secret Service agents were able to stop him. What the reports downplay is that Omar was probably on anti-psychotic medications – just like several other recently dangerous events.

Mr. Gonzalez, 42, served his county in the U.S. Army from 1997 until medical retirement in 2008. While the Army won’t share member’s reasons for leaving the service, Omar’s wife did.

Omar’s ex-wife says he was medically retired due to plantar fasciitis (a foot disorder) and that he suffered from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). His ex-wife also confirmed that Omar had been prescribed medications for PTSD.

Traumatic events affect people in different ways. Some can wall-off the event(s) and carry on. Others are affected by the event(s) for long periods of time. For those haunted by past events, medications are often prescribed.

The most common medicines offered are SSRI’s, or,  Selective Seratonin Reuptake Inhibitors. These are considered anti-depression medications.

What’s odd is how much the reports downplay the condition and the medication. While PTSD can often be treated with therapy and support, the rapid increase in the use of anti-psychotic drugs to treat conditions like PTSD and ADD is alarming.

This fence-jumping event is just the latest high-profile event to feature someone on anti-depressants. Columbine, Sandy Hook, the Navy Yard, the Aurora theater shooting, and many many more all were performed by men on anti-psychotic meds.

Recent reports have demonstrated that anti-psychotic medications re-arrange the brain’s architecture almost immediately. What could go wrong?

A single dose of a popular class of psychiatric drug used to treat depression can alter the brain’s architecture within hours. – The New York Times

Most Americans could not even fathom how they or a family member might react if their brain chemistry was suddenly altered. Pushing it on war veterans and troubled teens may not be all that responsible and worse, could be a factor in recent high-profile violence.

At some point, our leaders need to consider the role anti-psychotics play in violent events – so why don’t they?

Congressional members and the President are heavily lobbied by drug makers. Anti-psychotic drugs are a huge boon to drug-maker’s bottom lines. The math is not that hard.

Fox Outsmarts PC – Be Offensive, Get Banned, Get Paid

Poor, poor California just doesn’t get it, but Fox does

Fox has a brand new hospital drama coming out and to promote it they used characterizations of Octavia Spencer’s character to advertise the new show.

Buses throughout the the Los Angeles area had been painted with advertisements for the new Fox show, Red Band Society, that referred to the starlet as “scary bitch” just as the show will.

Not surprisingly, Los Angeles residents found it offensive and complained to city transportation officials.

Due to the public outcry, city officials confirmed that they would be removing the advertisements, but no time frame was offered.

Fox is now getting coverage in every newspaper, news show, online site, blog and entertainment magazine you can imagine.

I personally pat Fox on the back for using political correctness to its advantage. Honestly, had you heard of this TV show before the “scandal?”

 

NAACP Protects Right to Show Butt in Public

Saggy PantsShowing your underwear or butt cheeks will again be legal in Oscala, Florida thanks to the heroic actions of the NAACP.

The Oscala, FL city council had previously passed an ordinance preventing citizens from walking around with pants that showed their undergarments or worse.. their butts. The NAACP threatened to file suit against the “saggy pants” ordinance and Oscala blinked.

Local NAACP President Loretta Pompey Jenkins said that the issue should not be dealt with through government agencies.

Dale Landry, of the Florida state NAACP said “it’s going to be black males that are the subject of this.”

Landry’s assertion is that because mainly black males show their underwear or buttocks in public, the regulation to prevent it is clearly racist.

The NAACP seems disinterested in improving the quality of life of the black community and instead have become the puppet of those that have no interest in elevating the African-American community as far as possible.

If all the NAACP can do for black Americans is to protect the right to show some butt, I have no idea why black Americans feel that the NAACP speaks for them.

Democrats use fear-mongering in last ditch effort to hold majority

Democrats have gotten a large portion of their legislative and regulatory agenda enacted, but Americans seem greatly displeased with the results. Now, Democrat leadership is using FUD (Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt) as a tool in the November 2014 elections to hold on to their slim and ineffectual majority in the U.S. Senate.

Former House Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi appeared on “Real Time with Bill Maher” and made the case that only Democrats could save the human race… or something.

Rep. Pelosi told Maher that “It would be very important for the Democrats to retain control of the Senate” because  “civilization as we know it today would be in jeopardy if the Republicans win the Senate.”

No fear-mongering there…

Pelosi managed to lead the Democrats into a crushing defeat in the House after pushing legislation that almost no one actually wanted and even fewer appreciate now that Obamacare has been enacted.

Having the wicked witch of the West tell a 100% liberal audience that Republicans would end society is yelling into an echo-chamber – only Maher’s uninformed, non-critical-thinking left-wing extremist viewership would even accept her statements as anything but political rhetoric.

The current Democrat-led Senate has accomplished very little under Sen. Harry Reid’s leadership. Mainly due to Reid’s inability to aptly push flawed progressive legislation while Obama’s left-wing extremist initiatives drive more families into economic ruin and U.S. companies to send their assets overseas.

The majority of the bills passed by the Senate have been symbolic at best and ridiculous at worst. The few that have been considerable were bills that met with little debate and were obviously necessary. The rest… resolutions to name this building after that guy or have a holiday named after that other guy. Reid’s legacy will be that he was able to enact less useful legislation than any previous Senate leader in history.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has been unable to push difficult bills through the Senate even though his party holds the majority. Perhaps all the time Reid is spending getting activist liberal judges on the appellate courts would be better spent getting the work of the people done.

The Senate was always envisioned to be a more deliberative body. More discussion, more debate – more… American. Harry Reid is unable to lead a body of this type. Instead, he leads by iron hand or not at all. Perhaps the latter is best for our nation.

Failing to bring a useful amount of legislation to the floor, unable to create a co-operative government and incapable of heading a productive Senate, Harry Reid is the problem that President Obama often points to. The reason Washington is unable to “do anything” is because Sen. Reid likes it that way.

Perhaps America needs new Senate leadership to end the grid-lock about which the President so often complains.
