Tail-wagging love really does conquer all:
Dying Man Reunited with Beloved Dog Makes Complete Turnaround

 By Jerry A. Kane Full Story

Dying Man Reunited with Beloved Dog Makes Complete Turnaround

James Wathen, a terminally-ill patient at Baptist Health Corbin in Corbin, Kentucky, had stopped eating and had become weak and frail. His condition kept deteriorating, and he was barely able to talk. Wathen managed to whisper to a nurse his wish to see his dog, Bubba, just one more time. The 73-year-old hadn’t seen his one-eyed Chihuahua with no bottom teeth since he arrived by ambulance at the Whitley County hospital six weeks earlier.

A Plague on Both Houses: Insane Ebola Policy Exposes American Suicide Culture
 By Kelly OConnell Full Story

Has America passed the point of no return, where dying cultures arrive when their internal logic and external conversations descends into illiteracy, and then madness? Perhaps. For example, how is it possible that persons fresh from the site of outbreak of one of the world’s worst viruses, simply walk off airplanes into American cities? Or, consider the dangerous, utterly indefensible policy of allowing the border to stay open, and illegal entries to cross, allowed to stay, even when criminal convictions for violent crimes are proved.

How has Liberia's President Responded to Ebola? By Taking Extra Powers
 By Alan Joel Full Story

Liberia's President, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf

Last week on October 7, it was reported that Liberia’s President, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, asked for more emergency powers to help contain and prevent the current Ebola crisis. Liberia is already under a state of emergency and curfew, which began in August. But according to VOA News:

EBOLA: Lack of Common Sense, Money or Conspiracy?
 By Leigh Bravo Full Story

The Ebola crisis is heating up day by day, while more Americans are affected by the disease and the Tekmira Pharmaceutical company has found itself in the right place at the right time to get approval on a vaccine for the disease, as reported in the Wall Street Journal today!

An Ill Wind working to blow out world light
 By Judi McLeod Full Story

There’s a bitterly cold,  ill wind blowing all over the land and another brutal winter lurking ‘round the corner.  The ill wind is raising up dust devils of a most hideous nature.  The most worrisome dust devil of the moment is Ebola, which the United Nations-run World Health Organization (WHO) predicts will have spread to 1 million by this January.

Doug Ford Will Beat John Tory in Toronto Mayor Race
 By Mitch Wolfe Full Story

Doug Ford Will Beat John Tory in Toronto Mayor Race

There are fewer than ten days left in this long, brutal, but very exciting ten month long mayoral campaign.

But contrary to all the pundits on both sides of the political spectrum, I believe the stars are aligning for Doug Ford to beat the frontrunner John Tory. And hand John Tory his well-deserved sixth career political defeat.

The CBO has not actually scored ObamaCare's deficit impact since 2012
 By Alan Joel Full Story

The CBO has not actually scored ObamaCare's deficit impact since 2012

Hats off to The Weekly Standard for delving into the question of ObamaCare costs. The Senate Budget Committee (SBC) took the time to analyze the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) projections related to ObamaCare and this is what they found:

Left Tries to Blame Ebola Crisis on Republicans
 By Roger Aronoff Full Story

Left Tries to Blame Ebola Crisis on Republicans

A new ad put out by the left-wing Advocacy Project seeks to link Republican budget cuts with the spread of the Ebola virus, a shameful fear tactic that could take hold among a populace rightfully concerned about this epidemic. While media organizations such as Time Magazine and Real Clear Politics have reported on the existence of the video, all they did was cite the ad, not challenge the veracity of its information. In doing so, they’re acting as vehicles for spreading its misinformation.

Obama's Deadly Ebola Lies
 By Matthew Vadum Full Story

President Obama’s lies about the communicability of the truly terrifying Ebola virus are recklessly putting American lives at risk.

And yesterday Obama did the unthinkable: he cancelled a precious campaign fundraiser to address an issue of intense interest to the American people. At a photo-opportunity disguised as an emergency cabinet meeting the president did what he always does: he lied and lied and lied.

Obama hosted leaders of Ebola-plagued West African countries at August summit
 By Judi McLeod Full Story

Obama hosted leaders of Ebola-plagued West African countries at August summit

Did any Ebola carriers visiting the White House to attend Obama’s first-ever US-Africa Leaders Summit on August 4-6 precede the late Thomas Eric Duncan in potentially exposing Americans to the deadly virus?

The Obamas to Greet Incoming Passengers from West Africa!
 By William Kevin Stoos Full Story

The Obamas to Greet Incoming Passengers from West Africa!


In the face of overwhelming public sentiment that a travel ban should be imposed on incoming flights from Ebola-plagued West Africa in order to protect Americans from this killer disease, the President has decided to double down on his adamant refusal to consider such measures to protect his own citizens.

As America Sleeps, China Conquers Latin America
 By Michael Fumento Full Story
As America Sleeps, China Conquers Latin America

Bucaramanga, Colombia—Step aside, EU! China is set to become Latin America’s second-largest trading partner in two years. And 13 years later it will be king of the hill according to the journal China Policy Review. Yes, having locked up Asia and Africa, the ever-hungry Chinese dragon is salivating over what the U.S. at least used to consider its “back yard.” (You know, the Monroe Doctrine and all that.)

Who is More Evil: Al Qaeda or Islamic State; and Which Poses the Greater Threat?
 By Ron Lipsman Full Story

Who is More Evil: Al Qaeda or Islamic State; and Which Poses the Greater Threat?

Whether you seek its definition as an adjective or noun, you will find in any reputable dictionary two identifying components of the term evil: morally reprehensible and causing immense harm. The problem is that the first component and, to a lesser extent, the second are both relative terms. Whether an action is morally reprehensible depends on the moral code used to judge the action. And too often, one man’s assessment of damage is another’s evaluation of progress.

The surrealism of Obama’s Ebola
 By Judi McLeod Full Story

Dancing with the Turnips

If President Barack Obama were a rank-and-file reporter rather than the imperial head honcho overseeing the mainstream media of the day, he’d long ago have been pink-slipped for not recognizing the who, what, where, why, when of that industry that used to validly be called ‘The News’.

Seeing Ebola Through Obama’s Eyes
 By Cliff Kincaid Full Story
Seeing Ebola Through Obama’s Eyes

The nephew of the black African who brought Ebola to the United States doesn’t blame his uncle. He blames us. He writes in The Dallas Morning News that his uncle did everything right in Liberia, but still got Ebola, and wasn’t treated correctly in the U.S. The claim is that he had a right to be on U.S. soil and that it’s our fault he’s dead.

As Obama Tackles Ebola, What About Enterovirus D68?
 By Douglas V. Gibbs Full Story

As Obama Tackles Ebola, What About Enterovirus D68

The president is now paying attention. He has to. Ebola has reached “crisis stage,” according to his minions.

Ebola is not passed from person to person easily. Two health care workers are sick from Ebola, after dealing with now deceased Ebola Thomas Eric Duncan in Dallas. One of the health care workers is doing well, and the other flew to Cleveland before she was visibly sick, and therefore, we are told, before she was contagious.

Grim humour
 By Klaus Rohrich Full Story

Have you heard the one about the Rabbi, the Imam and the fat chick? Me neither. In fact, it’s been so long since I’ve heard a good joke that I almost forgot what it feels like to laugh. It seems this is somewhat of a universal experience, as many of my friends and acquaintances have similar plaints.
