Remember this when Democrats blame GOP "budget cuts," "the sequester" or "government shutdown" for the Obama administration's incompetent response to the Ebola outbreak



● Washington Post Fact Checker Glenn Kessler: 'Accusation that GOP cuts have stymied Ebola efforts doesn’t add up' = "Four Pinocchios."

● "Glenn Kessler, the Washington Post's designated fact-checker gave the left's claims that Republicans alone were responsible for alleged "cuts" to Ebola research four Pinocchios (i.e., a "whopper").

● More Glenn Kessler: 'The absurd claim that only Republicans are to blame for cuts to Ebola research' = "Four Pinocchios."

● IBD: Budget 'Cuts' Aren't Why CDC Fumbled Ebola (includes chart "What Budget Cuts?") 

● Say what?! [Quoting] The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has spent more than $39 million on obese lesbians, origami condoms, texting drunks, and dozens of other projects that could have been scrapped in favor of developing an Ebola vaccine. [End]

● POLITICO: The Facts About Ebola Funding:
[Quoting] In recent years, the CDC has received significant amounts of funding. Unfortunately, however, many of those funds have been diverted away from programs that can fight infectious diseases, and toward programs far afield from the CDC’s original purpose.
Consider the Prevention and Public Health Fund, a new series of annual mandatory appropriations created by Obamacare. Over the past five years, the CDC has received just under $3 billion in transfers from the fund. Yet only 6 percent—$180 million—of that $3 billion went toward building epidemiology and laboratory capacity. Especially given the agency’s postwar roots as the Communicable Disease Center, one would think that “detecting and responding to infectious diseases and other public health threats” warrants a larger funding commitment.
Instead, the Obama administration has focused the CDC on other priorities. While protecting Americans from infectious diseases received only $180 million from the Prevention Fund, the community transformation grant program received nearly three times as much money—$517.3 million over the same five-year period. [End]

● Blaming Ebola Outbreak on "Republican Cuts" to Health Budgets? (includes three charts) Reason.com editor in chief Nick Gillespie:
[Quoting] Spending grew rapidly under full GOP control and then leveled off at high amounts once divided government and the fiscal crisis kicked in. The report notes that "Pandemic Preparedness funding through the GHP account totaled $50 million, a decrease of $22.5 million (-31%) below FY14." Let's stipulate two things. First, $50 million is both a lot of money and not a lot of money in terms of federal spending. I doubt anyone seriously thinks that spending more in the year to come would have stopped Ebola outbreaks that began in fiscal 2014. Second, the requested decrease is in President Obama's budget. Is he a Republican now?
Then there's the National Institutes of Health (NIH), whose role in developing new medicines and interventions has been supposedly destroyed by cuts over the years, right? According to its budget documents, the NIH got about $23 billion in fiscal 2002 (George W. Bush's first budget year), a figure that rose to $30.2 billion in 2009 (his last budget year) before peaking at $31 billion in 2010. It dipped a bit from then and came to $30.1 billion in 2014, which is about the same amount the NIH requested in President Obama's 2015 budget plan. [End]

● FAIL: Democrats try to deflect blame for Ebola outbreak, fail abysmally

● Guy Benson: New Democratic ad says GOP budget cuts caused Ebola crisis or something

● FLASHBACK: Obama adviser was ‘architect’ of showdown
Ed Klein: "She [Valerie Jarrett] convinced the president that a government shutdown and default offered a great opportunity to demonize the Republicans and help the Democrats win back a majority in the House of Representatives in 2014. ... Valerie also came with the idea of using the words 'hostage,' and 'ransom,' and 'terrorists' against the Republicans."

An opinion: Aside from the fact that Democrats are averse to passing or even having a budget, i.e., "If you can't budget, you can't govern," expect them to continue to try and use this blaming strategy for whatever Obama failings apply, there are certainly enough of them.

Who knew that Obama's "We are the ones we've been waiting for" from 2008 meant him allowing Ebola-infected non-U.S. citizens into America?!



From Judicial Watch:
"The plans include special waivers of laws and regulations that ban the admission of non-citizens with a communicable disease as dangerous as Ebola. One source tells us that the Obama administration is keeping this plan secret from Congress. The source is concerned that the proposal is illegal; endangers the public health and welfare; and should require the approval of Congress."
 More from Thomas Sowell:
At a minimum, it suggests that he [Obama] takes his conception of himself as a citizen of the world more seriously than he takes his role as President of the United States. At worst, he may consider Americans' interests expendable in the grand scheme of things internationally. If so, this would explain a lot of his foreign policy disasters around the world, which seem inexplicable otherwise.
Those critics who have been citing Barack Obama's foreign policy fiascoes and disasters as evidence that he is incompetent may be overlooking the possibility that he has different priorities than the protection of the American people and America's interests as a nation.
This is a monstrous possibility. But no one familiar with the history of the twentieth century should consider monstrous possibilities as things to dismiss automatically. Nor should anyone who has followed Barack Obama's behavior over his lifetime, and the values that behavior reveals.
[…]
No one knows at this point how big the Ebola danger may turn out to be. But what we do know is that official reassurances about this and other dangers have become worthless.

EXCLUSIVE: Obama Administration Quietly Prepares 'Surge' Of Millions Of New Immigrant IDs
Despite no official action from the president ahead of the election, the Obama administration has quietly begun preparing to issue millions of work authorization permits, suggesting the implementation of a large-scale executive amnesty may have already begun.
Unnoticed until now, a draft solicitation for bids issued by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Oct. 6 says potential vendors must be capable of handling a “surge” scenario of 9 million id cards in one year “to support possible future immigration reform initiative requirements.”
The request for proposals says the agency will need a minimum of four million cards per year. In the “surge,” scenario in 2016, the agency would need an additional five million cards – more than double the baseline annual amount for a total of 9 million.
“The guaranteed minimum for each ordering period is 4,000,000 cards. The estimated maximum for the entire contract is 34,000,000 cards,” the [PDF] document says.

Ben Shapiro:“So there are multiple charges – I mean, everything from Benghazi, which there are violations of the Espionage Act and the Arms Export Control Act to the IRS, in which there are violation of IRS law, to witness tampering on multiple counts. There are tons of charges can be brought against the Obama administration. But I’m arguing here is this is really a criminal enterprise like the mafia. Basically, President Obama never has to give a direct order. All he has to do is sit atop of the chain of command and then let all of his minions do whatever it is that he wants. This is why the RICO Act was created – is to wrap all of this kind of stuff in a bundle and then allow for prosecution. That would mean [Attorney General] Eric Holder would have to do something.”

[Quoting] The New Black Panthers are a radical Muslim black separatist group that, among other things, supported threats of violence against cartoonists in Denmark for their depictions of Muhammad. Members of the group engaged in overt voter intimidation in 2008 in Philadelphia, and the Obama-Holder Department of Justice later dropped the case against them after it had won that case. The Panthers endorsed Obama in 2008, an endorsement that was posted on and later scrubbed from his campaign web site. [End quote]

Eric Holder: Gun Owners Should 'Cower' in Shame Like Smokers
http://newsbusters.org/blogs/nb-staff/2013/01/10/eric-holder-gun-owners-should-cower-shame-smokers
[Quoting] The hot new video at MRCTV.org is 1995 footage of Attorney General Eric Holder, when he was the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia. In his remarks before the Woman's National Democratic Club, broadcast by CSPAN 2, Holder said people should be ashamed to own guns, just the way that cigarette smokes now "cower outside of buildings" to smoke. [End quote]

Meanwhile, Barack Obama and Eric Holder's illegal gun-running scheme dubbed Operation Fast and Furious armed drug cartel scum who leave body parts behind as calling cards. Two Federal Agents, Brian Terry and Jaime Zapata, and hundreds of innocent Mexican citizens died because of it.

Eric Holder Fled DOJ Over Fast & Furious Gun Smuggling Plot
By Bob Owens 
http://bearingarms.com/holder-fled-doj-fast-furious-gun-smuggling-plot/
Closing paragraphs: [Quoting] Fast and Furious is one of ten possible gunwalking operations in five states, according to investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson.
At least one of those alleged DOJ operations, dubbed “Gangwalker,” was apparently designed to supply weapons to Chicago’s murderous drug gangs and drive up the number of gang-related homicides in that city, increasing calls for more restrictive gun control laws.
The next time you hear of someone attempting to claim that American citizens are responsible for “an epidemic of gun violence, ” be sure that you point out that the Obama Administration appears to have intentionally implemented multiple plots to smuggle weapons to criminal gangs on both sides of the border, hoping that the public would respond to their manufactured outrage with calls for more gun control.
At least 300 people have died so far as a result of Fast & Furious guns, including American citizens. [End quote]

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/02/05/Brian-Terry-s-brother-shreds-Holder-on-Fast-and-Furious-What-honor-and-integrity-have-you-shown-Mr-Holder
"Somewhere deep inside you must have some conscience; do the honorable thing and have some integrity as an attorney general. You have children, wouldn't you want... justice for your children? Of course you would. These guns will continue to show up at murder scenes in the future, and I am sure you don't want more blood on your hands. So I ask you: stop misleading my family and the American people. Stop obstruction of justice. My family has been through enough grief with the loss of my brother, and to have no answers for why [his blood was spilled] on this soil is upsetting to me and my family; our lives are shattered for the rest of our lives and will never be the same."

http://townhall.com/tipsheet/katiepavlich/2014/09/25/exclusive-brian-terrys-sister-on-holders-resignation-not-a-coincidence-n1896769
"I do not find it a coincidence that Eric Holder chose now to resign after Judge Bates denied the request from the DOJ to delay the release of the Fast and Furious documents. I personally think Eric Holder was really hoping that the documents would never be made public to my family and the American people. Will we ever get the accountability for my brother, Brian, Jaime Zapata and every other person who lost their lives to the guns from this horrific scandal? I don't know, but I have a serious gut feeling when we finally see what is in those documents....the dynamics of this investigation are going to change and hopefully the people involved are brought to justice. Eric Holder can run, but there will be no hiding. The truth always reveals itself."

Gohmert: Holder enabled Boston Marathon bombings
http://www.wnd.com/2014/09/gohmert-holder-enabled-boston-marathon-bombings/

Here are two specific points that underscore what Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX) said about Eric Holder and the Boston Marathon bombings, that "rather than investigate (radical Islam), they partnered with them." Both have to do with how the Obama administration handled the situation AFTER the bombings, meaning blood was already spilled:

● Associated Press reporter Eileen Sullivan, a counter-terrorism expert, reported the following just days after the Boston bombing:
(AP) "Within hours of the Boston Marathon blasts, government officials... from the departments of Justice and Homeland Security offered support to Muslim communities in case they suffered backlash or threats even days before law enforcement connected the suspected bombers to a violent interpretation of Islam."
'Community outreach key to Obama counterterror plan; Federal outreach to Muslim American communities is a pillar of Obama counterterrorism strategy'
http://www2.readingeagle.com/article.aspx?id=480847

● Attorney General Eric Holder also eagerly jumped in to "Mirandize" the surviving Tsarnaev brother which, among other things, effectively ended further collection of intel on this terrorist's activities. Paul Mirengoff weighed in on what Eric Holder's DOJ did when this went down: [Paraphrasing] For ideological reasons, "protecting Tsarnaev appears to have trumped protecting the public."

Cronyism, political donations likely behind Obama, Holder failure to charge any bankers after 2008 financial meltdown
http://dailycaller.com/2012/08/07/report-cronyism-political-donations-likely-behind-obama-holder-failure-to-charge-any-bankers-after-2008-financial-meltdown/
"A new report from the conservative Government Accountability Institute (GAI) finds that President Barack Obama's and Attorney General Eric Holder’s failure to criminally charge any top Wall Street bankers is likely a result of cronyism inside the Department of Justice and political donations made to Obama's campaign."

Wall Street Prosecutions under Obama: Zilch
http://times247.com/articles/on-wall-street-obama-all-bluster
Jean-Claude Groulx: “For all the bluster of Obama, pre- and post-2008, as well as that of Attorney General Eric Holder concerning the alleged criminal activities on Wall Street, there have been zero Wall Street prosecutions under Obama/Holder. Compare that with his predecessors Bush and Clinton: Bush: 1,300 convictions; Clinton: 1,000 convictions; Obama: Zero attempts. And why the difference in prosecuting the law? The GAI report reveals that the Department of Justice upper echelon is stacked with attorneys, including Eric Holder,  from law firms representing the very same companies involved in the financial meltdown of 2008, as well as financial corporations with questionable actions during the Obama administration. ... AIG, Goldman Sachs, Wells Fargo, J.P. Morgan Chase, Bank of America, CitiBank, Deutsche Bank, ING, Morgan Stanley, UBS, Wilmington Trust, and John Corzine's MF Global.”

The Border Crisis is Obama's "checkmate" in "fundamentally transforming" America

Documenting the crisis at the border -- at least, trying to...


The fact that each day seems to bring more pressing "border crisis" news speaks for itself, which is one reason for this blog post and the Facebook Notes below. Sharing scores of newsworthy links on this topic means some get lost in the fog... the fog of Info Overload. Barack Obama and Valerie Jarrett know EXACTLY what they're doing. Call it their Shock and Awe.

● AUDIO from 2003: How to Destroy America [Quoting] This is the original audio file of Dick Lamm's now rather famous and very short "My Plan to Destroy America" remarks from October 18, 2003. This audio has never been published or released anywhere. [End quote]

● TEXT AND VIDEO from 2010: Eliseo Medina is an immigration activist who has ties to SEIU, the Communist Party USA, and the Democratic Socialist Party:


Eliseo Medina Speaks on Immigrants for Votes
[Quoting] So I think there’s two things that matter for the progressive community. Number one, if we are to expand this electorate to win, the progressive community needs to solidly be on the side of immigrants, that we’ll expand and solidify the progressive coalition for the future… When you are in the middle of a fight for your life you will remember who was there with you. And immigrants count on progressives to be able to do that. Number two. “We reform the immigration laws, it puts 12 million people on the path to citizenship and eventually voters”. Can you imagine if we have, even the same ratio, two out of three? If we have eight million new voters who care about …… and will be voting. We will be creating a governing coalition for the long term, not just for an election cycle… [End quote]

● 2013: Excerpt from 'Remarks by the President on Comprehensive Immigration Reform'
Obama: [Quoting] First, we strengthened security at the borders so that we could finally stem the tide of illegal immigrants. We put more boots on the ground on the southern border than at any time in our history. And today, illegal crossings are down nearly 80 percent from their peak in 2000. (Applause.) Second, we focused our enforcement efforts on criminals who are here illegally and who endanger our communities. And today, deportations of criminals is at its highest level ever.  (Applause.) [End quote]
● 2014: 'Contract Shows Obama Planned Border Invasion'
A federal employment ad posted in January showing that 65,000 unaccompanied minors will enter the U.S. illegally shows that the administration expected this cross-border child abuse and encouraged it.
Concrete evidence has shown up proving our earlier assertion: The breach of our border by waves of unaccompanied alien children was orchestrated by the administration based on a strategy straight out of the playbook President Obama studied as a community organizer. His goal is to get his way on immigration reform by overwhelming the U.S. Border Patrol and collapsing an already weakened system.
The evidence comes in the form a government contract solicited in January by the Department of Homeland Security.* The listing asked for "Escort Services for Unaccompanied Alien Children" in expectation of the arrival of 65,000 minors on our southern border without their parents or guardians.

*Fed Solicitation: "Escort Services for Unaccompanied Alien Children"

A June 12, 2014 post from Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) executive director Mark Krikorian: I received the following e-mail from a Texas state official who recently toured the border area where the mass crossings are taking place. This is an excerpt from his note (he asked that his name be withheld):
What we saw and heard was maddening, frightening, and pathetic. The pictures shown in the media of the conditions at the BP [Border Patrol] facilities is accurate. We saw several hundred youths crammed into holding cells, with the spillover out in the loading dock area. While we did see some infants and small children. the vast majority were teenage males. Although the [redacted] facility was terribly overcrowded, sanitation seemed adequate at the time, but BP officers were concerned about the spread of disease.
BP officials and line officers were clearly demoralized by what is going on. BP folks were very candid in saying there was nothing they could do about the kids pouring across the border unless there was a change in policy in DC. BP officials almost begged us (us being state officials and staff) to help get the policy changed. They readily admitted that none of these kids were ever going to be sent back and that our border is wide open for unaccompanied minors. BP also said that the drug cartels are certainly taking advantage of the situation. The BP personnel, including senior officials, we talked to were very demoralized. In contrast, the Texas Department of Public Safety is doing a great job of trying to pick up the slack ... in fact I was told by one BP official that if it wasn't for DPS there wouldn't be any security on the Texas border. That is sad and pathetic.
● 'More on the Unaccompanied Alien Child health crisis'
John Hayward: "This isn't just a border crisis any more, because part of the Cloward-Piven strategy for assaulting American systems with this tidal wave of illegal aliens involves dispersing them across the United States as quickly as possible. They're everywhere, and they're bringing some significant health issues with them."

● A juxtaposition of two quotes, almost 50 years apart...
LBJ at signing of the 1965 Immigration Bill: "This bill we sign today is not a revolutionary bill. It does not affect the lives of millions. It will not restructure the shape of our daily lives."
Ann Coulter in 2013: "Not only do our post-1965 immigration policies create an unemployment problem, not only have they massively increased the crime rate, but now all Americans are being asked to give up their civil liberties to fulfill Teddy Kennedy's dream of bringing the entire Third World to live right here in America. (And vote Democrat!)"

"I was a Sailor once..."



'Reflections of a Blackshoe' by Vice Admiral Harold Koenig, USN (Ret)

I like the Navy. I like standing on the bridge wing at sunrise with salt spray in my face and clean ocean winds whipping in from the four quarters of the globe - the ship beneath me feeling like a living thing as her engines drive her through the sea.

I like the sounds of the Navy - the piercing trill of the boatswains pipe, the syncopated clangor of the ship's bell on the quarterdeck, the harsh squawk of the 1MC, and the strong language and laughter of sailors at work.

I like Navy vessels - nervous darting destroyers, plodding fleet Auxiliaries, sleek submarines and steady solid carriers. I like the proud names of Navy ships: Midway, Lexington, Saratoga, Coral Sea - memorials of great battles won. I like the lean angular names of Navy 'tin-cans': Barney, Dahlgren, Mullinix, McCloy - mementos of heroes who went before us.

I like the tempo of a Navy band blaring through the topside speakers as we pull away from the oiler after refueling at sea. I like liberty call and the spicy scent of a foreign port. I even like all hands working parties as my ship fills herself with the multitude of supplies both mundane and exotic which she needs to cut her ties to the land and carry out her mission anywhere on the globe where there is water to float her.

I like sailors, men from all parts of the land, farms of the Midwest, small towns of New England, from the cities, the mountains and the prairies, from all walks of life. I trust and depend on them as they trust and depend on me - for professional competence, for comradeship, for courage.  In a word, they are "shipmates."

I like the surge of adventure in my heart, when the word is passed: "Now station the special sea and anchor detail - all hands to quarters for leaving port", and I like the infectious thrill of sighting home again, with the waving hands of welcome from family and friends waiting pier side. The work is hard and dangerous; the going rough at times; the parting from loved ones painful, but the companionship of robust Navy laughter, the 'all for one and one for all' philosophy of the sea is ever present.

I like the serenity of the sea after a day of hard ship's work, as flying fish flit across the wave tops and sunset gives way to night. I like the feel of the Navy in darkness - the masthead lights, the red and green navigation lights and stern light, the pulsating phosphorescence of radar repeaters - they cut through the dusk and join with the mirror of stars overhead. And I like drifting off to sleep lulled by the myriad noises large and small that tell me that my ship is alive and well, and that my shipmates on watch will keep me safe.

I like quiet midwatches with the aroma of strong coffee - the lifeblood of the Navy - permeating everywhere. And I like hectic watches when the exacting minuet of haze-gray shapes racing at flank speed keeps all hands on a razor edge of alertness. I like the sudden electricity of "General quarters, general quarters, all hands man your battle stations", followed by the hurried clamor of running feet on ladders and the resounding thump of watertight doors as the ship transforms herself in a few brief seconds from a peaceful workplace to a weapon of war - ready for anything. And I like the sight of space-age equipment manned by youngsters clad in dungarees and sound-powered phones that their grandfathers would still recognize.

I like the traditions of the Navy and the men and women who made them. I like the proud names of Navy heroes: Halsey, Nimitz, Perry, Farragut, John Paul Jones. A sailor can find much in the Navy:  comrades-in-arms, pride in self and country, mastery of the seaman's trade. An adolescent can find adulthood.

In years to come, when sailors are home from the sea, they will still remember with fondness and respect the ocean in all its moods - the impossible shimmering mirror calm and the storm-tossed green water surging over the bow. And then there will come again a faint whiff of stack gas, a faint echo of engine and rudder orders, a vision of the bright bunting of signal flags snapping at the yardarm, a refrain of hearty laughter in the wardroom and chief's quarters and messdecks.  Gone ashore for good they will grow wistful about their Navy days, when the seas belonged to them and a new port of call was ever over the horizon.

Remembering this, they will stand taller and say, "I WAS A SAILOR ONCE.  I WAS PART OF THE NAVY, AND THE NAVY WILL ALWAYS BE PART OF ME."

Some links on the Democratic Party's history of racism, bigotry, segregation, and yes, the KKK



Democrats: The Missing Years -- "The party that championed slavery and segregation erases its race record from history."
http://spectator.org/archives/2008/08/12/democrats-the-missing-years

The DNC's Bold Lies -- "The lies are big, bold and prominent. ... literally akin to writing a history of Germany that ends in 1933 and resumes in 1946, neatly skipping those historic trivialities of Adolf Hitler, the Nazis, and the mass murder of six million Jews (not to mention that small skirmish called World War II) — why is there any surprise, any surprise at all, at the recent repeated surfacing of the culture of racism — judging others by skin color — by Obama media allies and politicians? This cultural rot has been the backbone of American liberalism and its political party the Democrats — for 212 years. No wonder the DNC feels it has to lie." ~Jeffrey Lord

In closing, news recently surfaced that Barack Obama was the very first follower of the hatefully-named Twitter account 'IHateNi**ers'. This was documented (complete with screen grabs) in the article titled, 'Amazingly Enough, the Official Obama Twitter Account Actually Followed This Absurd Racist'.
http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/11/14/obamas-official-twitter-account-caught-following-outrageous-racist/

More disturbing would be the likelihood that Barack Obama and/or his Democratic cronies created this Twitter account to keep their hate alive. Lest we forget what Booker T. Washington said over a hundred years ago:

"There is another class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs -- partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs."
