Here’s the latest on all the crap from today, courtesy of a collapsing, disgustingly bloated federal government headed by clueless, moronic bureaucrats, many of whom would rather be golfing.
Secret Service director resigns after security failures
Secret Service Director Julia Pierson resigned Wednesday, after a security breach at the White House and other high-profile incidents raised widespread concerns about the safety of the president and his family.
Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson announced the resignation in a written statement, and the White House confirmed her decision shortly afterward. President Obama “concluded new leadership of that agency was required,” White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said.
I’d say we need ‘new leadeship’ everywhere.
5 kids had contact with Liberian Dallas Ebola patient
Authorities say five students who had contact with a man diagnosed with Ebola in Dallas are being monitored but are showing no symptoms of the disease.
Dallas Independent School District Superintendent Mike Miles said Wednesday that the students were in school this week after possibly being in contact with the man over the weekend…
As an added precaution, Miles says additional health and custodial staff will be at the five schools the students attend.
Isil ‘within mile’ of Baghdad despite wave of US air strikes
ISIL fighters are reportedly just one mile away from Baghdad as reports emerge of al-Qa’ida militants bolstering their ranks in Syria.
According to the Foundation for Relief and Reconciliation in the Middle East, Isil was approaching the Iraqi capital yesterday morning.
“The Islamic State are now less than 2km away from entering Baghdad,” a spokesperson said.
“They said it could never happen and now it almost has. President Obama says he overestimated what the Iraqi Army could do. Well you only need to be here a very short while to know they can do very very little.”
The news comes amid reports of an emerging alliance between Isil forces in Syria and Jabhat al-Nusra, also known as the Nusra Front.
1) “Did I do all of this?”
2) “Mission accomplished!”
3) “Now this is Hope and Change!”
4) “I think my Nobel Peace Prize is in here somewhere.”
5) All of the above.
I know there’s a pen and a phone in here somewhere…
Whew, this presidenting is hard!
I never thought I’d say this, but… I miss Jimmah. Good times 🙁
Very sobering shows for the past 2 nights, Tammy. You’re right, information is power. You’re also right that Americans aren’t a weak-kneed people. We fight to win, when given the chance. Obama’s regime is incapable of being truthful with the American people and so, our hands are tied. The onslaught of these “crisis” was totally foreseeable: ISIS, Ebola, Ukraine, on and on. Obama *chose* not to act effectively and decisively in all of these cases by dragging his feet, being wishy-washy, playing word games, and just acting like a child, rather than the leader of the free world. So, we’re left to guess and speculate what will happen next, and where. Just 32 days until the new Congress and Senate are elected. While the polls look good for the GOP, and Obama’s numbers are dropping across the board, I’m hopeful the sleeping giant will arise once again, this time, to fight the enemy within. Question remains, will the GOP lead or just manage the mayhem. May God Bless America, land that I love.
Following the election, even with a strong Republican victory, the lame duck session could be awful. Another no budget continuing resolution has to be passed by December 11. 40 days following the election is a few days after that. CR. discussion could be one gigantic squirrel prior to Obama pen & phone amnesty and other horrors such as Iran agreement that lets, it get the bomb, refugee status for Liberians, trade agreement give aways, banning of fracking, bailouts of State education debts, …
We should be so lucky to live to 75.
Obama is completely under water with all this…so he has “left the room” metaphorically speaking. And him having surrounded himself with leftist incompetents, he and the genuflecting minions are bringing down the country.
I can’t help but think of how much fun some of us made of this billboard/poster. I would love to have GW back right now. Just when I keep thinking it can’t get any worse – it does. http://fyiaka411.files.wordpress.com/2010/02/bush-miss-me-yet-billboard-021020104.jpg
Without a Veto Proof Congress, it’ll be more of the same or worse for the next few years…

Liberal logic in the news:
Climate Change – This is real folks. We’re ALL going to die if we don’t do something about it. Now, it can even alter the male/female ratio!
Ebola – Ebola in the US is unlikely. Just wash your hands.
Just did a search on enterovirus D68 – why is it called a non-polio enterovirus? Is polio related to enteroviruses? Too many questions …
Polio is an enterovirus as is a lot, almost uncountable, of other virus’. This one is called “non-polio” because sometimes in some cases, the symptoms mimic polio. My twin great grandsons (born in May) are infected with the D68 virus right now. One who happens to have a bit of a breathing problem is the most sick. The other twin; not so sick. Their older sister (4) also infected, but hardly sick at all. None are hospitalized, although they are watching them closely, especially the one twin. My granddaughter, their mother, is a nurse so that helps. But I can tell you, this is no more than a nasty cold/flu and very young, very old and not so healthy are most at risk. But listening to those “brilliant” “scientists” called the main stream media….well, you would think we are in the 14th century and the black plague was rampaging across the country. Before I was promoted to white haired old geezer on a pension, I was a clinical laboratory scientist with specialties in Hematology, Immunology, Microbiology and Clinical Chemistry.
those old enuf to remember the scary days before a polio vaccine realize how very serious this #68 is. The only thing I remember as a child that could scare my Mom was the threat of polio. I still remember how thrilled I was as a second grader upon hearing the news that a vaccine was found. And I also remember being herded into the gym with my classmates to get the shot. I am sure parents had to consent, but I doubt many objected. Wonder if such a mass vaccination project could be done today, and if parents would be so trusting of a govt. program.
We still occasionally see patients who have long term effects from having had polio as a child: muscle weakness, pain, chronic fatigue; sometimes issues with breathing, swallowing, speech. The symptoms may show up 30 years after the original infection with the polio virus. I remember the names of the men who produced the first polio vaccines – Salk and Sabin. They were household names. I remember seeing black and white news reports on TV showing polio patients in iron lung machines.
After all is said and done, Americans have no one to blame but themselves. That is the harsh reality.
Reality isn’t swayed by this hoax of an administration and it’s academic, news and entertainment venues.
