“Shirt-fronting” could well become the new buzz word in international diplomacy
Shirt-fronting Putin Can Help Eradicate Islamic State Crisis

 By David Singer Full Story

The possibility of Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott shirt-fronting Russian President Vladimir Putin at the G20 Summit in Brisbane next month over the downing of Malaysian Airlines flight MH 17 in Ukrainian sovereign territory with the loss of all on board - including 38 Australians - has receded following Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop’s 25 minute meeting with Putin on the sidelines of the Asian Europe Summit held in Milan this week.



What Congressmen Are Told About Ebola
 By Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh Full Story

What Congressmen Are Told About Ebola

The Congressional Research Service has been driving the legislative debate since 1914, giving our Congressmen information on various topics. The latest report on October 3, 2014, entitled, “Ebola: Basics about the Disease,” by Sarah Lister, Specialist in Public Health and Epidemiology, provides the following information obtained from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).


Iran’s regional hegemony threatened by the war against ISIS
 By Amir Basiri Full Story

After years of enjoying the position of the main hegemon in Iraq and Syria, Iran is now facing an escalating dilemma as other powers have entered the scene to deal with the rising threat of the Islamic State (also known as ISIS or ISIL), an extremist group which has occupied stretches of Iraqi and Syrian territory in the past months.


Canadian PM calls possible terrorist attack a possible terrorist attack

Canadian PM calls possible terrorist attack a possible terrorist attack

Although the incident was tragic, it was refreshing to see Prime Minister Harper use the “t” word when describing an incident that took place in Quebec. Had what happened occurred south of the border, it would have been called an unfortunate car accident or at best, an incident of road rage.


The Hand of God is always there
 By Judi McLeod Full Story
The Hand of God is always there

Even amid the doom and gloom seeping out from the deliberate destruction of America by its own president; even in the despair that comes along with the increasing perversion of the current Pop Culture, the Hand of God is always at work.




The "Malaise" Has Returned
 By Alan Caruba Full Story
The Malaise Has Returned, Jimmy Carter, Obama

The joke is that Jimmy Carter is happy that Barack Obama has replaced him as the worst President of the modern era.  It is a supreme irony that Obama’s campaign theme was “Hope and Change” when Americans have lost a great deal of hope about their personal futures and the only change they want is to see Obama gone from office.


Even ‘Shock-a-holic’ presidents can’t stampede nations into mass hysteria

Even ‘Shock-a-holic’ presidents can’t stampede nations into mass hysteria

That Americans aren’t caving in to widespread hysteria on the current Ebola outbreak scare is a major headache for propagandist president Barack Hussein Obama.

BHO must have been in a real flap when he took to the microphones for his weekly radio address on Saturday:  “This is a serious disease,” he said, “but we can’t give in to hysteria or fear, because that only makes it harder to get people the accurate information they need.” (Los Angeles Times, Oct. 18, 2014)


Let's all hope Obama's new Ebola Czar, Ron Klain, stayed at a Holiday Inn last night.

Let's all hope Obama's new Ebola Czar, Ron Klain, stayed at a Holiday Inn last night

Last week, President Barack Obama made a largely symbolic move by appointing his new “Ebola Czar.” Since he had to look like he was doing something, he did. The man he chose is Ron Klain - someone who knows nothing about medicine or science.


Quarantine Quandary
 By Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh Full Story
Quarantine Quandary

As the ISIS crisis is conveniently ignored right before the election, the main stream media is focusing on the next crisis, the Ebola spread and the schizophrenic response from the CDC. Meanwhile Congress is silent, waiting for guidance on what opinion they should form before they actually do the job they were elected to do, legislate to protect the best interests of the American people.


CNN Columnist: Americans don't care about Ebola in Africa, because they're racists

CNN Columnist: Americans don't care about Ebola in Africa, because they're racists

Ah, CNN.  At one time, Ted Turner’s news network was the only one of its kind. These days, it’s near the bottom of a rather large pack, and has become the most banal example of an entire genre.  When your claim to fame is “doing slightly better than MSNBC” you know things are bad.  Perhaps, like their closest rival, CNN’s years of painfully obvious bias have something to do with the decline.




The War on Police, Revisited
 By Cliff Kincaid Full Story

The War on Police, Revisited

The justified police killing of black thug Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, was used by the media to accuse the police of being “militarized” when they brought out the heavy equipment to cope with rioters. At the same time, Brown was portrayed as an innocent black man shot with his hands up. All of this was false, and it has now been proven to be false.


Democratic Voting Bloc-Heads

Democratic Voting Bloc-Heads

As this is being written, Rasmussen Reports says that 48% of likely voters approve of President Obama’s performance in office while 50% disapproved. Other polls indicate far more unhappiness with Obama, but in general one must conclude that half the voters are idiots. He is an enormous failure domestically and with his foreign relations.

Big government no solution to helping the poor

Big government no solution to helping the poor

Whenever there is lots of money in a centralized source, there is a need to take extraordinary measures to keep it from being stolen. Yet we have a federal government that is involved in the centralized collection and spending of trillions of dollars that is being run by thieves.


Dying Man Reunited with Beloved Dog Makes Complete Turnaround

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.

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.
