Ebola, Obama, incompetence

Ebola

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.

Militarized police go too far

Militarized police vehicle. This kind of display could show the police are soldiers under the Third Amendment. It also is a sign of preparing for chaos and then engineering it.

The events of the last eight days in Ferguson, Missouri have called the country’s attention to a disturbing trend. America now has the most militarized police it has ever had. Like all ideas that threaten liberty, militarized police began innocently enough. But the public and the media are at least paying attention. So, one hopes, are enough Representatives and Senators

Asking for martial law?

Regular readers know the United States Department of Justice has prepared for martial law for years. They have placed up-armored Army and Marine surplus vehicles with police departments and sheriff’s offices, large and small. And you, the taxpayer, have paid for this excess. Of course some police department would use those vehicles for some totally unnecessary “bad-ass” policing. But could anyone say ahead of time that a United States Representative would ask for martial law?

Bearcats and cops: connected

Disturbing information has surfaced regarding MRAP and BearCat military vehicles being used to patrol the streets of our local communities – some with populations under 7,000. The MRAPs (Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles) were designed to survive improvised explosive device attacks and ambushes. The BearCats (Ballistic Engineered Armoured Response Counter Attack Trucks, a product of the Lenco corporation) are a subset of MRAPs. They have seen service in special weapons and tactics (SWAT) squads, homeland security, counter-terrorism, force protection, and military policing missions. Willing police departments and sheriffs’ offices have enjoyed their new free toys without giving a thought to any strings that may be attached in the future but the protesting citizens (now labeled as “domestic terrorists” in Concord, NH) view these vehicles as highly objectionable and intimidating.

Occupy Wall Street v. TEA Party

PGA and politicians take note! And everyone else, consider taking out some insurance.

Occupy Wall Street plan to infiltrate and disrupt TEA Party meetings to provoke violence. TEA Party patriots must not let that happen.
