Ebola, CDC, and confusion

The biohazard symbol, a warning to follow protocol.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) seem unable to make up their minds how a patient harboring Ebola can give it to someone else. Have they confused themselves beyond repair? Or has someone told them to lie to us?

Time to save America

Ebola

A good argument can be made that America has been on a downward slide since the middle of the 20th century. Thanks to people like Lyndon B. Johnson, who robbed churches of their political voice with the 1954 Johnson Amendment; and Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood who fought for the legalization of abortion and her cohort Mary Calderone of SIECUS, America’s spiritual and moral decline escalated without much opposition. The problems that resulted and their root causes are now a part of America’s historical record. Those who choose to evaluate the causes of our downward spiral will find many benefactors of evil in addition to the ones named that legitimately deserve blame. But when push comes to shove, the fault of our decline is not resting squarely on the shoulders on the man now occupying the White House or his evil predecessors. It rests on ours.

Can you explain America?

Here is the price of freedom and an answer to tyranny

Picture this: You’re going to be meeting with George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin. They want to know what has happened to America. What will you say?

Ebola: inadequate response

Ebola

The Obama administration did not stop Ebola from reaching American shores. Now it is not doing what it should to stop Ebola from spreading more widely. One class of citizens took matters into their own hands last night. All Americans must now do the same.

NPR propagandist ruse

Flag_of_Hamas

NPR’s political position is heard by many, and its audience is led to sympathize with the Islamic enemies of civilization.  Our very future is in upheaval and I challenge NPR’s motives, ethics, and sense of responsibility.

Demilitarizing local police

OTher than police, what should governemnt do for people?

A welcome trend has started in small-town and small-county police departments. They are giving back that surplus military hardware they got under the 1033 program. Many have found out it costs them to keep that hardware up, and plenty. But local citizens now also realize when their police get military gear, they become soldiers, not law enforcers. And that threatens their liberties.

Thank the troops

Sarah Palin in Kuwait

President Obama stepped off the U.S. Marine Corps helicopter (Marine One) in New York City Tuesday, September 23, 2014, to attend a U.N. General Assembly meeting. It was sickening to watch President Obama return a formal military salute from two Marines standing at attention in their dress uniforms with a sloppy limp salute using his right hand which was holding a Styrofoam cup., a gesture that has been labeled the ‘latte salute.’

Third Amendment case law

The Constitution assumed local control of most government functions, not the current centralized system.

The Nevada case of Mitchell v. City of Henderson still slogs through the Nevada Federal District Court. This case has one unusual feature. It accuses police in two cities of quartering themselves in two private houses without the consent of their owners. This would breach the Third Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which deals with quartering of soldiers. The defendant city officials say police officers are not soldiers. But the Mitchells actually have a thirty-two-year-old precedent on their side. That case says one need not be an active-duty U.S. armed service member to be a “soldier” under the Constitution.

The new anti-ethics

Obama, hypocrite in chief at the National Prayer Breakfast

Forty years ago last month, President Richard M. Nixon resigned his office. No American President had ever resigned before. None has done so since. Furthermore, several of Nixon’s men went to jail. And only because they lied about a third-rate burglary in a political rival’s office. The country had a strong sense of ethics then. (Or so we thought.) Where is that ethics today? Or has a new anti-ethics taken its place? A new moral code that rewards those who promise “bread and circuses,” and no one cares whether anyone in government lies or not?

Ted Cruz stands for Israel

How should Israel feel about trusting Putin's Bitch?

Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) had to take a stand recently. He spoke to a group and mentioned Israel as America’s ally. Some attendees shouted him down, and he walked away. But what should infuriate any true Christian is: the group was a nominally Christian group.
