US Soldiers Sent To Fight Ebola In Africa Will Not Get Hazmat Suits

Fort Campbell Troops On Ebola Mission Won’t Get Full Protective Gear
Troops from the 101st Airborne Division leading the military response to Ebola in West Africa will only need gloves and masks to protect themselves from the deadly virus, so said Gen. David Rodriguez at a Pentagon briefing Wednesday.

“They don’t need the whole suit – as such – because they’re not going to be in contact with any of the people,” the commander of U.S. troops in Africa said.
Soldiers from the 101st Airborne will primarily be building hospitals, ultimately leading what could be a contingent of 4,000 American service members. They’ll be housed either in tent cities at military airfields or in Liberian Ministry of Defense facilities, Rodriguez said.

Soldiers’ health will be monitored through surveys and taking their temperature on their way in and out of camps. If a service member does get sick, Rodriguez said they will be flown home immediately for treatment.
Next week, the 101st Airborne will hold a traditional pre-deployment ceremony, known as a “color casing”, before departing for Liberia, though a handful of soldiers are already on the ground.

"The fact of the matter is, we don't know what to believe because in 2013 the US government gave itself permission to use PROPAGANDA (Psy Ops) against the American people.

"We know they are lying. Is it a 100% lie? Is it a 50% lie? We know it's always a lie and they're never telling the total truth. So it's difficult and they create stress and confusion and that's part of the problem. But in terms of ANY virus coming to get you, It's like a wake up call. You better start taking care of yourself NOW."

If A Few Ebola Cases Can Make The Stock Market Crash This Much, What Would A Full-Blown Pandemic Mean?


Is Ebola going to cause another of the massive October stock market crashes that Wall Street is famous for?  
At one point on Wednesday, the Dow was down a staggering 460 points.  It ultimately closed down just 173 points, but this was the fifth day in a row that the Dow has declined.  And of course Ebola is one of the primary things that is being blamed for this stunning stock market drop.  Since September 19th, we have seen the S&P 500 fall about 7 percent and the Nasdaq fall nearly 10 percent.  The VIX (the most important measure of volatility on Wall Street) shot up an astounding 22 percent on Wednesday.  So many of the ominous signs for the markets that I wrote about on Tuesday are now even worse.  If a handful of Ebola cases in the United States can cause this much panic in the financial world, what would a full-blown pandemic look like?
Of course Ebola is not the only reason why stocks are declining.  Just look at what is happening over in Europe.  The European Stoxx 600 index is already down a whopping 11.4 percent from the high that it hit just 18 days ago.  That is officially considered to be "correction" territory.
And Greece experienced a full-blown stock market collapse on Wednesday...
As if the world didn't have enough to be worried about (ISIS, Ebola, slowing China, Ukraine, slowing Germany, Fed tightening, etc.) now look what's back: Greece. And in a big way.
The stock market is down over 9% on Wednesday, which is about as big as crashes come.
And the banks are getting absolutely smashed.
In general, markets tend to fall faster than they rise.
When there is a sudden downturn, the price action can be violent.  And just like we saw back in 2008, financial stocks are leading the way.  Just check out what happened to some of the biggest banks in America before the final bell sounded...
Volume leader Bank of America, down 5%, Citigroup, off 5.5%, and JP Morgan, down 4.6%, were particularly hard hit.
And thanks to Ebola fears, airline stocks plummeted as well...
Airline stocks were roiled by the prospects of curtailed travel due to the spreading Ebola virus. United Continental fell 4% and American Airlines was off 4.3%. Among tech stocks, Intel lost 3.3%. Apple fell 1.7% and Microsoft slipped 2.3%.
An increasing number of voices are concerned that we could be on the verge of a repeat of what happened back in 2008.
For example, Professor Steve Keen, the head of Economics, History & Politics at Kingston University in London, wrote the following in a piece for CNN entitled "Brace yourself for another financial crash"...
My acceleration indicator has been flagging that the stock market was due for a fall since mid-2013.
It's a tribute to the power of the Fed's Quantitative Easing that the market continued to defy the gravity of decelerating debt for so long. QE was really a program to inflate asset prices since, as my colleague Michael Hudson puts it, "the Fed's helicopter money fell on Wall Street, not Main Street".
But with QE being unwound, the stock market is now back under the control of the not so tender mercies of excessive private debt.
So welcome to the New Crisis -- same as the Old Crisis. The roller coaster ride is likely to continue.
Others are even more pessimistic.  For example, just check out what Daniel Ameduri of Future Money Trends recently told his readers...
"If it drops below 15,000 points I would suggest people start buying food and ammo, because this depression is about to turn nasty."
However, keep in mind that not that much has really changed from a month or two ago.
Yes, we now have had three confirmed cases of Ebola in the United States, but this could be just the beginning.
At first, the fear of Ebola will be worse than the disease.
But if a worst-case scenario does develop in the United States where hundreds of thousands of people are getting the virus, the fear such a pandemic will create will be off the charts.
In the midst of a full-blown Ebola pandemic, we wouldn't just be talking about a 10 percent, 20 percent or 30 percent stock market decline.
Rather, we would be talking about the greatest stock market collapse in the history of stock market collapses.  In essence, there would not be much of a market at all at that point.
And if Ebola does start spreading wildly in this country, we would have a credit crunch that would make 2008 look like a Sunday picnic.
During times of extraordinary fear, financial institutions do not want to lend money to each other or to consumers.  But our economy is entirely based on debt.  If credit were to stop flowing, we would essentially not have an economy.
That is why we need to pray that this Ebola crisis stops here.  But thanks to the incompetence of Barack Obama and the CDC, there has been a series of very grave errors in trying to contain this disease.  This display of incompetence would be absolutely hilarious if we weren't talking about a disease that could potentially kill millions of us.
Let us hope for the best, but let us also prepare for the worst.  That means stocking up on the food and supplies that you will need to stay isolated for an extended period of time.  As we have seen so many times in the past, basic essentials fly off of store shelves during any type of an emergency.  During an extended Ebola pandemic, those essentials would be in very short supply and prices on the basics would absolutely skyrocket.  Those that have taken the time to get prepared now will be way ahead of the game.
And if there were dozens or hundreds of people in your community that were contagious, you would definitely not want to go to a grocery store or anywhere else where large numbers of people circulate.
The key during any major pandemic is to keep yourself and your family isolated from the virus.  This is basic common sense, but it is something that Barack Obama does not seem to understand.  As I write this, he still has not done anything to restrict air travel between the United States and West Africa.  
Hopefully this very foolish decision will not result in scores of dead Americans.

ACLU 'Thrilled' to Kill Voter ID in Arkansas


Reacting to the Arkansas Supreme Court’s Wednesday ruling declaring the state's voter-identification law unconstitutional, ACLU of Arkansas Legal Director Holly Dickson said her group is “thrilled.” 
Well, why not. They’ve been at it all over the country, trying to take down voter ID laws and enrich the ground that can yield a bumper crop of vote fraud. 
The unanimous decision on Oct. 15 upheld a lower court ruling and will affect early balloting, which begins Monday, Oct. 20. Election Day is Tuesday, Nov 4.
The Republican-controlled state legislature enacted the fraud-prevention law in 2013 over a veto by Democratic Gov. Mike Beebe. The justices ruled that the law requiring all voters to present government-issued photo identification, “imposes a requirement that falls outside” four qualifications outlined in the state constitution: A voter must be a U.S. citizen, an Arkansas resident, 18 years old and registered to vote.
Providing proof that voters are, indeed, who they say they are, a requirement that the American Civil Rights Union and more than 70 percent of the public strongly supports, is too high a hurdle, according to the ACLU.
Ms. Dickson called the law "an unconstitutional barrier that has already stolen legitimate voting rights."  When clerks ask to see an ID before selling beer, are they “stealing legitimate drinking rights?”
The ACLU filed its lawsuit on April 16 in the Circuit Court of Pulaski County, seeking to prevent state officials from “enforcing any ‘proof of identity’ requirements on plaintiffs and all other Arkansas residents in all future elections, including the May 20, 2014, primary election and November 4, 2014, general election.”
Early voting in the primary began May 5. The ACLU contended that this didn’t give the court enough time to figure this out. The law was enacted a year before, so the plaintiffs had 12 months to figure out how to get a photo ID.
In the lawsuit, the ACLU acknowledged that voters without a photo ID can cast provisional ballots, but contends that this is a hardship because later “they must make a separate trip to the county clerk and swear that they are too ‘indigent’ to obtain ID.” The ACLU says this is “intimidating and humiliating as well as a burden.”
Hard cases make bad law, and nobody is better at creating cases where exceptions override the norm than the ACLU. For the Arkansas suit, they offered up Joe Flakes, “who was born in Arkansas 78 years ago but never issued a birth certificate,” and Toylanda Smith and Freedom Kohls, “neither of whom can obtain a copy of their birth certificate” because they don’t have sufficient IDs.  Apparently, they have never had to cash a check, apply for benefits, purchase alcohol or enter a secure government building. 
A fourth plaintiff, Barry Haas, has a valid photo ID, but he refused to present it during a “previous election held in Pulaski County in 2014,” and was given a provisional ballot that was not counted in the final election results.
The ACLU contends that the uncooperative Mr. Haas was “denied his state constitutional right to vote as an Arkansas resident.”

Passenger With "Vomiting Fit" Dies on Nigeria Flight to JFK (Video)

Ebola ruled out as passenger dies on Nigeria flight to JFK
A passenger died on a Nigeria-to-JFK flight after a vomiting fit Thursday — and a top lawmaker said officials gave the corpse only a “cursory” exam before declaring that the victim did not have Ebola.
Rep. Peter King said in a letter to Homeland Security and Customs and Border Protection that the handling of the remains exposed serious flaws in airport preparedness for an Ebola outbreak.
Between 70 and 100 passengers a day arrive at JFK from the Ebola epicenter countries of Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, King noted, and they have access to public restrooms and mingle with other travelers before their first screening.
“Given the high volume of travelers at JFK, it is essential that extraordinary measures are taken to intercept possible Ebola-infected passengers,” while keeping the public and first responders safe, King (R-LI) wrote to Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson and Customs Commissioner Gil Kerlikowske.
“These individuals transit the airport with the rest of the traveling population, including using the restrooms,” King wrote. 
Rep. Peter King
“It is only after they arrive at the Customs and Border Protection primary screening location that they are separated and sent to secondary inspection for a medical check and to complete the questionnaire,” he wrote Johnson.
His letter demands Homeland Security immediately beef up protocols for potentially infected passengers both in flight and at the terminal itself, prior to their reaching the screening location.
The letter also demands better training and safety equipment for the Port Authority police and Customs and Border Protection officials who can come into contact with high-risk passengers.
The unnamed passenger, age 63, had boarded an Arik Air plane Wednesday night out of Lagos, Nigeria, which has had 19 Ebola cases this year though no new cases in the past month.

Ebola In America - Is Government Hiding Info On Ebola? - Glenn Beck Weighs In

Can anyone say, "manufactured crisis"? At the risk of being redundant, this administration, to whom the CDC answers, is now flying people around the country who have Ebola, and trying to convince us this is perfectly fine.  
This is NOT a case of incompetence as the mainstream media is already suggesting because no one is this incompetent. I mean really. These are medical professionals. Supposedly very smart people.  Calling this incompetence is like saying that the reason our national debt is approaching $18 Trillion dollars is because Congress and the White House just like to spend a lot of money, or have a "spending addiction" (ever hear that one?)...No! They have an agenda and this too is about an agenda. Perhaps just the agenda of creating chaos to push through the rest of their NWO plans, but an agenda nevertheless.

Obama on Ebola- Incompetence or More "Transformation of America"?

Let me ask a question, has Obama been lying about Ebola, or is he just misinformed? 

To answer that, let me ask some other rhetorical questions: 
Was Obama lying when he said “If you like your health insurance plan, you can keep it” or was he just misinformed? 
Was Obama lying about the anti-Islamic video as it pertained to Benghazi, or was he just misinformed? 
Was Obama lying when he said that he "saved or created over 150,000 jobs", or just misinformed? 
Was Obama lying when he said “First of all, I didn’t set a red line,” or was he just misinformed?
Was Obama lying when he said "I’ve done more for Israel’s security than any President ever", or just misinformed? 
Was Obama lying when he said, "ISIS is not Islamic", or was he just misinformed?
Was Obama lying when he said the border fence is "now basically complete", or just misinformed?  
Was Obama lying when he said that by the end of his first term he would "cut the deficit in half", or just misinformed?

So let me ask the first question one more time, is Obama lying about Ebola, or is he just misinformed?

High School Students Say Pledge in Arabic: ‘One Nation Under Allah’



The principal at Rocky Mountain High School in Fort Collins, Colorado, is facing a hailstorm of criticism from some very angry parents and residents.
The school recites the Pledge of Allegiance weekly, on Mondays. Last Monday, a member of their “Cultural Arms Club” led the student body in an Arabic version of the pledge, replacing the words “under God” with “under Allah.”
Principal Tom Lopez denies any attempt to push an Islamic agenda, saying, “These students love this country. They were not being un-American in trying to do this. They believed they were accentuating the meaning of the words as spoken regularly in English.”
Principal Lopez doesn’t make any sense. Speaking unintelligible words in Arabic in some way accentuates their meaning? That is an extremely weak argument in defense of an ill-advised decision.
He said the cultural clubs seeks to “destroy the barriers, embrace the cultures” that exist within the high school.
That would translate into “destroy the barriers to Islam and embrace it,” correct, Mr. Lopez?
The Poudre School District communications director, Danielle Clark, said they understand why parents are upset. She told Fox News, “We understand not everybody would agree with the students’ choice. We’ve heard there are some who are upset.”
Let’s put his into perspective for the feeble-minded Clark and Lopez. It is not the student’s choice. They do not control the public address system. It was a school choice.
Her simplistic defense included a reference to “one” supportive email and a reference to a similar mistake last year which drew controversy when the pledge was recited in Spanish. Somehow not learning from and expanding upon your previous mistakes is perceived as a viable defense for these educators.
An abdication of responsibility is also part of their defense. Clark attempted to pass the buck of responsibility to the students, saying, “This is a student-initiated and student-led club. There is no school sponsor or advisor. It doesn’t come under the umbrella of the district.”
Actually, the activity of reciting the pledge does come under the district. Choosing to put it into the hands of a group not regulated by their administrators does not provide absolution.
“We deferred to the students because it’s their deal,” she said.
One cultural club member, professing to not understand the controversy is Skyler Bowden. Bowden simplistically told The Coloradoan, “No matter what language it’s said in, pledging your allegiance to the United States is the same in every language.”
Given their youth, the high school students might understandably not recognize the problems with proclaiming America as “one nation under Allah.” The grownups should and they ought to be controlling the activity.
The Muslim Brotherhood front group CAIR chimed in saying, “Obviously in Arabic, you would use the word Allah, but Christian Arabs would use the word Allah.” Their spokesperson, Ibrahim Hooper, claimed use of the word Allah is “not necessarily specific to Islam and Muslims.” From an American point of view, it is, whether he is technically correct or not, to Americans, in America, it’s a specific Muslim and Islamic reference.
As if to reinforce the idiocy of reciting the pledge in another language, Clark said she did not hear the pledge and does not speak Arabic so she could not confirm exactly what words were used.
Lopez said he has been getting a variety of accusations leveled at him, including being called a traitor. He said, “They claim they are outraged, that this is blaspheming a real major tenet of our patriotism – which in their mind the Pledge of Allegiance is only in English.”
He said he’s also been accused of “pushing a Muslim Brotherhood agenda – to push Islam into the school.” He denies that was behind the decision.
CAIR representative Hooper told Fox News he was dumbfounded by complaints about the Arabic version of the pledge.
“How on earth is it un-American to recite the Pledge of Allegiance in another language,” Hooper asked. “It doesn’t make sense unless the people complaining are anti-Muslim or anti-middle eastern bigots.”
It just might be that Americans recognize the Islamic agenda, Mr. Hooper, and are tired of having it forced upon them. Maybe we know what you are up to and people are pushing back.
Principal Lopez said all of the criticism and complaints had him “worn down.”
Playing the tolerance card, Lopez labeled himself as the victim, stating, “I’ve been shocked with prejudicial statements that have been made. I’ve been shocked with the lack of seeking understanding. There’s definitely suspicion and fear expressed in these people’s minds. There’s some hate.”
One resident, Chris Wells put it in terms even educator Lopez could understand. Writing in The Daily Coloradoan, he said, “As a veteran and a friend of a man killed defending these children in their little games they like to play with our pledge, I’m offended. There are things that we don’t mess with – among them are the pledge and our anthem.”
