Chris Christie caves on Ebola

Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey caved today. He tried to deny it. But neither he nor anyone else can mitigate what he did: first declare a twenty-one-day quarantine, then relent on it. That kind of relenting could get millions of people killed.

Voter fraud by mail

CNAV has exposed voter fraud by stand-in (the Texas Voter ID Law should check this) and voter fraud in the voting machine. Now James O’Keefe exposes the latest voter fraud gambit: by mail. Specifically, mail-in ballots. He infiltrated the Democratic political machine in Colorado. He found a brazen criminal mind-set to rival that of “Boss” William M. Tweed of New York’s Tammany Hall.

Any devils left in hell?

Sometimes the actions of the Obama administration leave me with many questions. And sometimes I wish the answers to those questions were beyond my grasp. Here are some of my questions:

Voter fraud with the machine

The news rings with tales of the most obvious kind of voter fraud: registering to vote when the law does not allow it, or standing in for a registered voter who has died or moved out-of-town or better yet out-of-State. But how do you know the voting machine tallies your vote accurately? Today a Republican State representative candidate from Chicagoland found out the hard way: you can’t always trust the machine. Election authorities can solve that problem, but only if they want to.

Ebola, Obama, incompetence

Ebola, Obama, incompetence. People will remember these three words together long after Obama leaves office. Obama has blundered badly at every stage of the Great West African Ebola Outbreak of 2014. A private company handled things better at its campus in the diseased region. Some think Obama hoped to gain an “October Surprise advantage” from this affair. He will not. He and the incompetent boobs he appointed, destroyed what advantage they had. Ebola tested Big Government, and found it lacking. Everyone should learn from this debacle. Learn what private persons and enterprises can do.

Wards of the state: lab rats?

Lab rat. Why do we treat wards of the state like this?

In the past two years, the child-protective service agencies of three states have each tried to turn one or two children, having rare genetic disorders, into wards of the state. In every case, new doctors took over the children’s care and did not treat them appropriately. As shocking as these episodes are, this has happened before. Ten years ago a scandal broke involving other experiments on wards of the state. The case included a foster-care agency in New York City, fifty children in their care, and thirteen phase-one trials of drugs to treat HIV-AIDS. Several child advocates and professors of ethics thought they’d stopped the practice. They haven’t. The experimenters learned from that case and changed tactics. Until more child advocates connect such cases, such abuses will happen again. And again, and again, and again.

Protocol breach by CDC

Over the weekend, the first American patient contracted Ebola fever in America. The patient, a nurse, will not give her name. She cared for Thomas Eric Duncan, alias “Patient Zero,” before he died. The CDC blames her for somehow “breaching protocol.” but they have no idea how she broke protocol. Of course they haven’t. Because she didn’t break protocol. The CDC themselves did. And so has de facto President Obama, since Ebola first broke out in West Africa.

Ebola: distraction or weapon?

Ebola has arrived in the United States. This arrival challenges the philosophical foundations of Progressivism and libertarianism. It also challenges the public policies of the last century. More to the point, Obama has blundered badly in the Ebola crisis. Or has he? More to the point: how can you handle it?

Holder: try and convict him

Proven to be a faithful criminal with his little cronies under the Clinton administration, Attorney General Eric Holder has now been exposed once again by showing the American people how truly corrupt he is. If he is not stonewalling, then he is attempting to cover for some unlawful scandal this criminal administration has committed. Now he is even attempting to run from what he is responsible for by attempting to get out before being held accountable.

Lois Lerner not sorry?

The IRS scandal gained a new face - in Congress.

This morning, Politico released their “exclusive” with Lois Lerner. (See also these secondary reports at The Daily Caller and from UPI.) She once served as Director for Tax-exempt Organizations at the IRS. While so serving she selectively applied the law. Tax collectors have done this since the first kings and emperors formed the first tax agencies. And she puffs herself up with pride for this.
