Obama's Midterm Loss Record Could Make History | Rothenblog

Obama's Midterm Loss Record Could Make History | Rothenblog: President Barack Obama is about to do what no president has done in the past 50 years: Have two horrible, terrible, awful midterm elections in a row.

In fact, Obama is likely to have the worst midterm numbers of any two-term president going back to Democrat Harry S. Truman.

Truman lost a total of 83 House seats during his two midterms (55 seats in 1946 and 28 seats in 1950), while Republican Dwight Eisenhower lost a combined 66 House seats in the 1954 and 1958 midterms.

Democrats use race-baiting fliers to spur black vote - Washington Times

Democrats use race-baiting fliers to spur black vote - Washington Times: The spate of campaign fliers that use images of lynchings, Jim Crow laws and the recent racial unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, to urge blacks to vote in next week’s election somehow failed to grab the attention of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.

The NAACP headquarters in Washington wasn’t prepared to answer questions about the fliers and mailers circulated in black communities in Georgia, Maryland and North Carolina, despite widespread news coverage of it for the past week.

“Can you send the photos of the literature and tell me the exact states they have been distributed in so that I can contact our field offices?” said NAACP spokeswoman Jamiah Adams.

Obamacare could be crippled since 214,000 Doctors withdrew

Obamacare could be crippled since 214,000 Doctors withdrew: More than 214,000 doctors will not participate in new plans under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA).

According to a survey conducted this year by the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA), a trade association comprised of multi-physician medical practices, “as many as 214,524 American physicians will not be participating in any ACA exchange products.” Reasons abound as to why, but, “chief among them is the fact that exchange plans are more likely to offer significantly lower reimbursement rates than private market plans, confusion among consumers about the obligations associated with high deductibles, and fear that patients will stop paying premiums and providers will be unable to recover their losses”

FBI wants expanded hacking authority | TheHill

FBI wants expanded hacking authority | TheHill: The FBI is pressing the little-known Advisory Committee on Criminal Rules to give it expanded authority to remotely hack and spy on computers in the U.S. and abroad.

Civil liberties and privacy advocates are calling the proposal a “new, expansive power” that could allow the government to collect private data, raising “significant” First and Fourth Amendment concerns. The FBI is arguing the change is a necessary update to outdated rules on territorial limits of warrants for electronic storage searches.

Hamas-CAIR Puts out Hit List Against Islamophobes - Freedom Outpost

Hamas-CAIR Puts out Hit List Against Islamophobes - Freedom Outpost: So. The Muslim Brotherhood front group Hamas-CAIR has decided to build and "islamophobic" website and design a hit list in the same manner as the Southern Poverty Law Center's "hate list." The new site is Islamophobia(dot)com.

According to the website, "Islamophobia is closed-minded prejudice against or hatred of Islam and Muslims. An Islamophobe is an individual who holds a closed-minded view of Islam and promotes prejudice against or hatred of Muslims."

The problem with such an assertion is nicely summed up by Ned May of the International Civil Liberties Alliance (ICLA) when he said that to use the term "Islamophobia" is "a violation of logic."

50,000 Missing Georgia Voter-Registration Applications? Nothing to See Here - The Daily Beast: With races for Georgia governor and U.S. Senate neck-and-neck, every vote counts—and civil-rights groups want to know where thousands of new voter-registration applications have gone.

Voting-rights advocates are running out of time in Georgia, where civil-rights groups say more than 50,000 new voter registrations have gone missing since they submitted them to state and local officials earlier this year. But with Election Day less than a week away, Georgia’s Republican secretary of state, Brian Kemp, is insisting that every voter-registration application submitted by Georgians before the registration deadline has been processed.

The PJ Tatler » Massive Non-Citizen Voting Uncovered in Maryland

The PJ Tatler » Massive Non-Citizen Voting Uncovered in Maryland: An election integrity watchdog group is suing the state of Maryland, alleging that it has discovered massive and ongoing fraudulent voting by non-U.S. citizens in one county. But because of the way that the non-citizens are able to cast votes in elections, the fraud is likely happening in every single county and subdivision across the state. The group believes that the illegal voting has been happening for years.

The group, Virginia Voters Alliance, says that it compared how voters in Frederick County filled out jury duty statements compared with their voting records. The group’s investigation found that thousands of people in Frederick County who stated that they are not U.S. citizens on jury duty forms went on to cast votes in elections. Either they failed to tell the truth when they were summoned for jury duty, or they cast illegal votes. Both are crimes. The same group previously found that about 40,000 people are registered to vote in both Virginia and Maryland.

Sources: Former Guantanamo detainees suspected of joining ISIS, other groups in Syria | Fox News

Sources: Former Guantanamo detainees suspected of joining ISIS, other groups in Syria | Fox News: As many as 20 to 30 former Guantanamo Bay detainees -- some of whom were released within the last three years -- are suspected by intelligence and Defense officials of having joined forces with the Islamic State and other militant groups inside Syria, Fox News has learned.

The development has cemented fears that the U.S. military would once again encounter militants taken off the battlefield.

The intelligence offers a mixed picture, and officials say the figures are not exact. But they are certain at least some of the released detainees are fighting with the Islamic State, or ISIS, on the ground inside Syria. Others are believed to be supporting Al Qaeda or the affiliated al-Nusra Front in Syria.

A new report says a fragment of the lost aviator’s aircraft “has been identified to a high degree of certainty for the first time ever” since her plane vanished over the Pacific Ocean on July 2, 1937.

Earhart had been attempting a record-setting flight around the world at the equator.

According to Discovery News, new research strongly suggests a piece of aluminum aircraft debris recovered in 1991 from Nikumaroro, an uninhabited atoll in the southwestern Pacific republic of Kiribati, does belong to Earhart’s twin-engined Lockheed Electra.

Democrats LITERALLY Buying Votes in Chicago! - Eagle Rising

Democrats LITERALLY Buying Votes in Chicago! - Eagle Rising: We conservatives have a lot of jokes about the way politics happens in Chicago – whether it be despotic mayors who rule over the city like some kind of mafia move crime boss, or the dead rising to vote in important (and not-so-important) elections. To us the crimes of the “Chicago Way” are many, and it’s simply laughable that the media continues to let Democrat politicians get away with the fraud, corruption and mayhem they commit in Illinois.

But sometimes (not very often) the media does their job and catches the crooks red-handed. In these cases we have to hope the justice system in Chicago isn’t as corrupt as the political machine…

Recently, local Chicago news caught a Democrat Chicago politician committing election fraud… on FACEBOOK.

The question is whether federal agents can disrupt service to a house and then, masquerading as helpful technicians, gain entry to covertly search the premises in hopes of finding evidence that might later justify a search warrant.

Alan Grayson (D-FL), a sleazy trial attorney and left-wing loon, was just named the 17th wealthiest member of Congress. Considering all the inherited money, lobbyists, and shady deals which happen in Washington, D.C., that is an impressive ranking.

But Grayson has another dubious distinction: a dead beat dad. After being married for 29 years to Lolita Grayson, he is refusing to support her or his children. Why? Because he is shamefully arguing his wife’s first marriage was supposedly never fully ended, so Alan’s marriage to her was never legitimate.

Mounting Crises Raise Questions on Obama Team’s Ability to Cope - NYTimes.com

Mounting Crises Raise Questions on Obama Team’s Ability to Cope - NYTimes.com: One day this month, as the nation shuddered with fears of an Ebola outbreak and as American warplanes pounded Sunni militants in Syria, President Obama’s national security adviser, Susan E. Rice, invited a group of foreign policy experts to the White House Situation Room to hear their assessment of how the administration was performing.

She was peppered with critiques of the president’s Syria and China policies, as well as the White House’s repeated delays in releasing a national security strategy, a congressionally mandated document that sets out foreign policy goals. On that last point, Ms. Rice had a sardonic reply.

“If we had put it out in February or April or July,” she said, according to two people who were in the room, “it would have been overtaken by events two weeks later, in any one of those months.”

“I don’t plan on sticking to the guidelines. I remain appalled by these home quarantine policies that have been forced upon me, even though I am in perfectly good health and feeling strong and have been this entire time completely symptom free,” said Hickox, who wouldn’t emerge from Maine’s 21-day voluntary quarantine until Nov. 10.

“I truly believe this policy is not scientifically nor constitutionally just, and so I’m not going to sit around and be bullied around by politicians and be forced to stay in my home when I am not a risk to the American public.”

Georgia Man Ordered to Remove NRA Hat When Voting

Georgia Man Ordered to Remove NRA Hat When Voting: If I were to show you a hat or t-shirt that had that NRA logo on it or said ‘NRA’, would you automatically assume that I was associated with and promoting the Republican Party?

Evidently there are some folks in Douglasville, Georgia that think so. The Atlanta suburb of 31,000 is located about 20 miles west of the state’s largest city. Like Atlanta, Douglasville must have their fair share of liberal Democrats.

Last week, a man went in to the Douglas County Courthouse to vote early. He was wearing an NRA hat and another voter got offended and complained. The man was asked to remove his hat while voting and he complied. Then on Friday, Bundy Cobb went to the courthouse to vote early. He is a certified NRA instructor and wears a hat that reads ‘NRA Instructor.’ After the incident earlier in the week, Cobb was asked to take his hat off while voting.

FBI under fire for fake news site to nab suspect - Yahoo News

FBI under fire for fake news site to nab suspect - Yahoo News: The FBI has come under fire from media organizations following disclosures that it create a fake news website to track down a suspect in a bomb threat case.

Documents revealed the FBI created a fake Associated Press news article that appeared to be in the Seattle Times, to trick the suspect to install malware that would reveal his location.

The incident dates back to 2007, but the documents surfaced this week after a security research for the American Civil Liberties Union tweeted a link to the case file on Monday.

"The FBI impersonating the press is just as irresponsible as the CIA running fake immunization programs. Completely unacceptable," said ACLU researcher Christopher Soghoian in revealing the documents.

The deception was publicized Monday when Christopher Soghoian, the principal technologist for the American Civil Liberties Union in Washington, D.C., revealed it on Twitter.

Alaska incumbent Sen. Mark Begich avoids even saying 'Obama' - LA Times

Alaska incumbent Sen. Mark Begich avoids even saying 'Obama' - LA Times: The simple question is at the top of many minds this grumpy election season, even among the 1,000 or so high school students gathered for a televised debate: "How will you work to reach across partisan lines to accomplish real goals?"

Incumbent Sen. Mark Begich, a Democrat in a tight race, started his answer by shoving his party's president gently under the campaign bus, talking about the need to open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil drilling, anathema to the Obama administration.

US soldiers' Ebola quarantine in Italy causes alarm - Yahoo News

US soldiers' Ebola quarantine in Italy causes alarm - Yahoo News: Rome (AFP) - The decision to put a dozen American soldiers returning from Liberia into quarantine for Ebola at their base near Venice rather than in the United States sparked controversy in Italy Wednesday.



 "They shouldn't have been sent here, they should do their quarantine for
Ebola at home," said the president of the region's assembly, Luca Zaia,
insisting "it would have been more respectful" of the United States to
have "thought about the risks posed to local citizens".

If It Damages America, It's Good for Democrats - The Dennis Prager Show The Dennis Prager Show

If It Damages America, It's Good for Democrats - The Dennis Prager Show The Dennis Prager Show: In almost every area of American life, the better things are, the worse it is for the Democratic Party. And vice versa.

Marriage.

Even today, after decades of feminism, most Americans agree that it is better for women (and for men) — and better for society — when women (and men) marry. Yet, when women marry, it is bad for the Democratic Party; and when women do not marry, even after — or shall we say, especially after — having children, it is quite wonderful for the Democratic Party.

Married women vote Republican. Unmarried women lopsidedly vote Democrat.

It is both silly and dishonest to deny that it is in the Democrats’ interest that women not marry.

Blacks.

Ebola doctor ‘lied’ about NYC travels | New York Post

Ebola doctor ‘lied’ about NYC travels | New York Post: The city’s first Ebola patient initially lied to authorities about his travels around the city following his return from treating disease victims in Africa, law-enforcement sources said.

Dr. Craig Spencer at first told officials that he isolated himself in his Harlem apartment — and didn’t admit he rode the subways, dined out and went bowling until cops looked at his MetroCard the sources said.

“He told the authorities that he self-quarantined. Detectives then reviewed his credit-card statement and MetroCard and found that he went over here, over there, up and down and all around,” a source said.

Document shows feds fear airborne Ebola

Document shows feds fear airborne Ebola: In a lengthy document that received nearly no media attention, a U.S. government agency has warned preliminary data shows Ebola is aerostable, meaning it can survive in the air and potentially be transmitted via airborne means.

The document was released in a federal government announcement seeking research proposals from private firms for Ebola treatment and diagnosis tools, including for the rapid disinfection of an “aerosol” version of the virus.

The announcement indicates that despite its public pronouncements to the contrary, the government is concerned the virus can spread through the air via vaporized bodily fluids.

CDC: Ebola Airborne 3 feet; MIT 20 feet - Conservative Byte

CDC: Ebola Airborne 3 feet; MIT 20 feet - Conservative Byte: Eventually the truth will come out totally.
Check it out:

This week, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) admitted that Ebola can travel through the air in aerosols, but claims that it can never go more than 3 feet.

Let’s check their math …

CDC (like the World Health Organization) admits that Ebola can be spread through sneezing or coughing.

But the CDC itself admits that flu droplets can travel 6 feet.

Mythbusters demonstrated that sneezes can nail people some 17 feet away:

But engineers at MIT show that sneezes can actually travel up to 200 times farther than previously thought … up to 20 feet.

Explosive Allegations Of New Obama Admin Scandal- "Worse Than Anything Nixon Ever Did"

Explosive Allegations Of New Obama Admin Scandal- "Worse Than Anything Nixon Ever Did": President Nixon had to resign the presidency because he used the agencies of the U.S. government to attack and spy on his political opposition. He almost was not caught. He almost skated by with saying he was not aware of the break-in at Watergate, the Democratic headquarters. It was only because of two determined investigative reporters, Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, that the truth came to light and Nixon was implicated.

Former CBS investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson just released a book in which she outlines her fight against the leadership of the mainstream media and the Obama administration while she tried to get to the truth behind the myriad of scandals emanating from the Obama administration, especially the Fast and Furious scandal.

That is why the publicly given reasons for sending thousands of USSA Army troops to Liberia, ostensibly to fight the Ebola outbreak there, cannot be true.

Obama assails Ebola quarantines, saying they are based on fear, not facts - The Washington Post: President Obama on Tuesday forcefully rejected the idea of a quarantine for medical­ workers returning from Ebola-affected­ countries, arguing that such an approach would undermine the broader effort to eliminate the epidemic .

Politicians in the United States, including the president, have come under increasing pressure to curtail the movements of medical personnel returning from Ebola-affected regions after Craig Spencer — a doctor who had been treating Ebola patients in Guinea — was diagnosed with the virus 10 days after he returned home to New York City.

Some countries “are implicitly or explicitly waiting for medevac assurances” before they will agree to send their own medical teams to join U.S. and U.N. aid workers on the ground, the State Department argues in the undated four-page memo, which was reviewed by The Washington Times.

BREAKING: If This Michelle Obama Rumor Is True, America Is in HUGE Trouble (WATCH)
Author: Editor
Posted: October 27, 2014
Comments: 6

In a CNN interview, far-left Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) entertained a question about First Lady Michelle Obama potentially taking over her Senate seat (above):

Crowley: I cannot let you go, senator, without asking about an article I read that posited that Michelle Obama would like to run for the Senate in California, and that she has her eye on your seat in 2018 because the feeling is that you may retire at that point. And so I thought I’d get your reaction to that story.

Feinstein: Oh, did you? Ha, ha. Well, I have no idea what I’m going to be doing in 2018. That’s four years from now, and that’s one of the nice things of a six-year term. I’ve served two years of my term and you know, I’ll make a decision in due time. I’m flattered, if that should be true. Somehow I do not believe it is true, but I would be flattered if it were.

CDC Finally Admits that Ebola Can Float through the Air … 3 Feet | The Daily Sheeple

CDC Finally Admits that Ebola Can Float through the Air … 3 Feet | The Daily Sheeple: We’ve noted for some time that Ebola can be spread by aerosols to frontline healthcare workers.

The CDC is finally admitting this fact.

The CDC put out a new poster stating:

Droplet spread happens when germs traveling inside droplets that are coughed or sneezed from a sick person enter the eyes, nose, or mouth of another person. Droplets travel short distances, less than 3 feet (1 meter) from one person to another.

A person might also get infected by touching a surface or object that has germs on it and then touching their mouth or nose.

***

Clean and disinfect commonly touched surfaces like doorknobs, faucet handles, and toys, since the Ebola virus may live on surfaces for up to several hours.

The incidents are all signs, U.S. officials and experts said, that aggressive, Soviet-era counterintelligence tactics are back in fashion in Russia.

The number of incidents targeting American diplomats in Moscow has increased in recent years to levels not seen since the Cold War, officials said. Taken together, they paint an escalating pattern of intimidation and harassment that is believed to be led by Russia's Federal Security Services (FSB), a successor to the Soviet KGB.

One should always be cognizant of outliers — and it’s worth noting that this survey was commissioned by the Maryland Republican Party. It’s also true that polls conducted by Gonzales this cycle have tended to show the race tighter than others — but as the Washington Post noted, Gonzales “does not have a partisan track record.”

Yet when two major, long-standing American media outlets – one leaning to the left, the other leaning to the right – both publish news and analysis detailing lies and corruption with President Barack Obama’s plan to grant amnesty to tens of millions of illegal immigrants, actual American citizens should take notice.

First, there is the left-leaning USA Today. An October 22nd headline in the Gannett-owned national newspaper read “U.S. misinformed Congress, public on immigrant release.”

Under Pressure, Cuomo Says Ebola Quarantines Can Be Spent at Home - NYTimes.com

Under Pressure, Cuomo Says Ebola Quarantines Can Be Spent at Home - NYTimes.com: Facing fierce resistance from the White House and medical experts to a strict new mandatory quarantine policy, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said Sunday night that medical workers who had contact with Ebola patients in West Africa but did not show symptoms of the disease would be allowed to remain at home and would receive compensation for lost income.

Mr. Cuomo’s decision capped a frenzied weekend of behind-the-scenes pleas from administration officials, who urged him and Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey to reconsider the mandatory quarantine they had announced on Friday. Aides to President Obama also asked other governors and mayors to follow a policy based on science, seeking to stem a steady movement toward more stringent measures in recent days at the state level.

Bellevue staffers call in ‘sick’ after Ebola arrives | New York Post

Bellevue staffers call in ‘sick’ after Ebola arrives | New York Post: An extraordinary number of Bellevue Hospital staffers called in sick on Friday rather than treat the city’s first Ebola patient — and those who showed up were terrified to enter his isolation chamber, sources told The Post.

“The nurses on the floor are miserable with a ‘why me?’ attitude, scared to death and overworked because all their co-workers called out sick,” one source said.

“One nurse even went as far as to pretend she was having a stroke to get out of working there, but once they cleared her in the ER they sent her back up,” the source added.

However, his fingerprints match the biometric records of a Luis Enrique Monroy-Bracamonte in a federal database, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman Virginia Kice said.

ER Doctor: What Scares Me Even More Than Ebola | Louis M. Profeta MD | LinkedIn

ER Doctor: What Scares Me Even More Than Ebola | Louis M. Profeta MD | LinkedIn: I’ve been walking the earth for a half a century, so I’m sure I’ve picked up a bit along the way. I know the Gettysburg Address by heart. I can recite all the presidents. I can taste the difference between Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi, and I’m fairly certain I can tell you the starting lineup from the 1976 Cincinnati Reds. But if you ask me if I’m worried about Ebola, if our hospital is ready or if our nurses and staff are up to the challenge, chances are you will probably hear me say this:

“Hell if I know.”

UTA grad isolated at New Jersey hospital as part of Ebola quarantine | Ebola in Dallas: Stories, videos, photos, graphics and resources from The Dallas Morning News

UTA grad isolated at New Jersey hospital as part of Ebola quarantine | Ebola in Dallas: Stories, videos, photos, graphics and resources from The Dallas Morning News: I am a nurse who has just returned to the U.S. after working with Doctors Without Borders in Sierra Leone - an Ebola-affected country. I have been quarantined in New Jersey. This is not a situation I would wish on anyone, and I am scared for those who will follow me.

I am scared about how health care workers will be treated at airports when they declare that they have been fighting Ebola in West Africa. I am scared that, like me, they will arrive and see a frenzy of disorganization, fear and, most frightening, quarantine.

I arrived at the Newark Liberty International Airport around 1 p.m. on Friday, after a grueling two-day journey from Sierra Leone. I walked up to the immigration official at the airport and was greeted with a big smile and a “hello.”
