Obama strips State National Guards of their combat attack helicopters

Dr. Eowyn:

The National Guards are state militias and a bulwark against federal government tyranny.

But Obama is neutering the National Guards by turning them into “disaster relief” units instead of the reserve MILITARY force that they are, via:

  • Taking away their Apache attack helicopters
  • Cutting the number of guards down to 315,000.

Call/write your Congress critters that you oppose this and that you support Rep. Joe Wilson’s (R-SC) bill, “National Commission on the Structure of the Army Act of 2014″!

Deadly Ebola virus jumps from Africa’s jungles to urban centers

Ebola virusEbola virus

Ebola is one of the world’s deadliest viruses with a high fatality rate of 60 to as high as 90%.

There is no vaccine. No cure.

First identified in 1976 in the sub-Saharan jungles of Zaire and the Sudan, Ebola was transmitted to humans via the blood or bodily fluids of an infected fruit bat or monkey.

Symptoms typical of a viral infection begin 2 days to 3 weeks after contacting the virus — those of fever, throat and muscle pains, and headaches. Then it gets worse, with nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and decreased functioning of the liver and kidneys. Then it gets even worse. The infected starts hemorrhaging or bleeding from the body’s mucous membranes — mouth (gums), nose, gastrointestinal tract, and vagina.

Ebola1The present 2014 Ebola outbreak began in February in the remote jungles of Guinea in West Africa, then spread quickly, crossing the borders into Liberia and Sierra Leone.

As of April 10, 157 suspected and confirmed cases and 101 deaths have been reported in Guinea, 22 suspected cases in Liberia including 14 deaths, 8 suspected cases in Sierra Leone including 6 deaths, and 1 suspected case in Mali.

In the past, an Ebola outbreak was quickly contained because lack of roads and transportation in rural Africa helped to quarantine the infection. But Richard Engel reports for NBC News, April 14, 2014, that now, for the first time since the deadly virus first appeared 38 years ago, Ebola has jumped from the jungle to an urban area — Conakry, the capital of Guinea, with a population of 2 million.

Dr. Jagatic described it as the biggest known Ebola outbreak an urban area: “It’s probably one of the more complicated outbreaks because it is occurring in a very densely-populated urban area, unlike previous outbreaks.”

Guinea is trying to contain the virus by prohibiting passengers with flu like symptoms — fever, diarrhea, or joint pain — from boarding plane flights.

Health officials do not expect the virus to go global. Dr. Anthony Fauci of the U.S. National Institutes of Health says, by its methods of transmission, it’s “very unlikely” that Ebola will spread to the United States.

Human-to-human transmission occurs via direct contact with blood or bodily fluids (from diarrhea or vomiting) from an infected person, or by contact with contaminated medical equipment such as needles. Since the virus continues to live inside a dead person, transmission can also occur via embalming an infected dead person. Men who survive may be able to transmit the disease sexually via sperm for nearly 2 months.

In late 2012, Canadian scientists discovered that the deadliest form of the virus could be transmitted by air between species, from pigs to monkeys without any direct contact between them, leading to fears that airborne transmission could be contributing to the wider spread of the disease in parts of Africa.

Some scientists believe that the Plague of Athens, which wiped out about a third of its inhabitants during the Peloponnesian War (431-404 B.C.), may have been caused by Ebola.

Given the lethal nature of Ebola, and since no approved vaccine or treatment is available, it is classified as a biosafety level 4 agent, as well as a Category A bioterrorism agent by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It has the potential to be weaponized for use in biological warfare.

It isn’t over: BLM says it made no deal with Bundy

Neil Kornze

BLM Director Neil Kornze

The Obama-BLM war against Nevadan rancher Cliven Bundy isn’t over.

Last Saturday, April 12, 2014, citing “safety concerns,” the BLM announced a premature halt to confiscating Bundy’s cattle and released about 400 head of cattle it had seized. BLM’s “operation” war, originally expected to take up to a month, ended after only a week.

Martin Griffith reports for The Associated Press that Bundy’s cattle were freed after hundreds of states’ rights protesters, some of them armed militia members, showed up at corrals outside Mesquite to demand the animals’ release. (An eyewitness says it was not hundreds, but THOUSANDS of protesters.)

Doug GillespieLas Vegas Police Lt. Dan Zehnder told the AP that Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie was able to negotiate a resolution after talking with Bundy.

But Bureau of Land Management spokesman Craig Leff denies there was a deal. He said, “The BLM and National Park Service did not cut any deal and negotiate anything. There was no deal we made. The door isn’t closed. We’ll figure out how to move forward with this.” Leff said the BLM will continue to try to resolve the matter with Bundy “administratively and judicially,” but declined to comment on BLM’s possible options.

The several hundred cows gathered during the roundup were short of the BLM’s goal of 900 cows that it says have been trespassing on U.S. land without required grazing permits for over 20 years. The BLM insists Bundy owes more than $1 million in grazing fees. But Bundy, the last rancher in Nevadas Clark County, has been fighting a “one-man range war” since 1993, when he decided to take a stand against the BLM by refusing to pay fees for the right to graze on a ranch run by his family for centuries.

The fight between Bundy and the BLM widened into a debate about states’ rights and federal land-use policy. Bundy does not recognize federal authority on land he says belongs to Nevada.

After years of court battles, in the name of protecting endangered desert tortoise in the region, the BLM secured a federal court order to have Bundy’s “trespass cattle” forcibly removed and, last week, dispatched some 200 agents armed with automatic weapons and sniper rifles to Bundy’s ranch about 75 miles outside of Las Vegas.

Meanwhile, environmental nazis are now irked with the BLM, accusing the bureau of capitulating to threats of violence from the “armed militia thugs” who have converged to support Bundy.

rob-mrowka1Rob Mrowka, senior scientist with the Center for Biological Diversity, wants the federal government to pursue legal action against Bundy. Back in April 2012, the Center had filed a notice of intent to sue the BLM for canceling a planned roundup of Bundy’s cattle at the last minute.

Mrowka fumed, “The BLM has a sacred duty to manage our public lands in the public interest, to treat all users equally and fairly. Instead it is allowing a freeloading rancher and armed thugs to seize hundreds of thousands of acres of the people’s land as their own fiefdom. The BLM is setting a dangerous precedent in announcing that it will pick and choose who has to follow federal laws and who it will reward for violating them.”

The Green Nazis should know that the BLM’s war on Bundy has precious little to do with desert tortoise.

It’s all about democrat Nevada senator Harry Reid and his deal with the Chinese to build massive solar facilities on Bundy’s land. See “Dirty Harry Reid Has His Hands All Over Bundy/BLM Dispute.

Eyewitness says BLM “scared crapless” by THOUSANDS of patriots supporting NV rancher Bundy

The People vs. BLM

The following is the personal account of a female Los Angeles attorney who drove Bunkersville, Nevada, to support besieged rancher Cliven Bundy:

I rolled into Laughlin really early, like 5:30 am. So many people had shown up, that we decided to leave in groups. A second group to leave at 8 AM as scheduled. Ours was a big group too. About two dozen cars, loaded with passengers.

The highway was almost empty until near Mesquite. Then it was a traffic jam. Motor homes, campers, ATVs running along side the freeway, motorcyles, vehicles, every thing you could possibly imagine. Everyone on their way to Bunkersville.

Then it [the traffic] about stopped, just inching along.

Word traveled down the traffic line that the feds had blocked the road just out of Mesquite and were searching vehicles for weapons and cell phones. Cell phones were confiscated and smashed. The people were given a chit for $30.00 redemption value. I left my phone at home.

Some of us that had four wheel drives decided to just leave the road and head overland. As we got closer to the ridge, we were stopped by armed militia. We could not go any further. We could wait, or turn around and go back to the road. Men, who I suspect were special forces, had climbed the ridge from the back side and captured the snipers. They were at that moment coming down the ridge to take them to Mesquite where they would be let go. They weren’t prisoners, they were just going to be replaced by friendlies.

Because of the roadblock on I-15, people refused to be searched, and refused to turn back. They just pulled off the road and parked. It was like a dam backing up a river. Soon the feds were trapped between the Americans who had already gotten through, and the Americans who had been stopped on the highway. The BLM agents went into full panic mode and called for help. LVPD [Las Vegas Police Department] who had REFUSED to show up to help Americans HAD to show up to rescue BLM that was now trapped and helpless. The blockade was SEVEN MILES LONG! That’s a potload of people.

A group of armed Americans along with local cowboys went to Mesquite to liberate the cows that had been confiscated and held by BLM. They were being driven back home in an old fashioned cattle drive. The feds say it was voluntary [that they voluntarily returned the confiscated cattle to Bundy], don’t believe it.

I was basically standing around twiddling my thumbs when the word came down that the Director of BLM had surrendered and all forces would be withdrawn. I could not go on. The road was blocked and would be blocked probably for the rest of the day at least. A bunch of us turned around and left. It was over.

There were THOUSANDS of people there, and more arriving every minute. The ranch, Gold Butte, the entire area was completely surrounded by Americans. The highway was completely blocked in both directions of people trying to get through. Everyone was very peaceful and friendly. No fights or anything. There was a rumor in the line, that some of the mercenaries hired by the feds had defected and were now on the side of the Americans.

I came back and immediately saw this [the media's] pack of lies and half truths.

At one point, I-15 was closed in both directions, about seven miles south of Mesquite, because protesters had blocked the freeway. Nearly two dozen police officers and a SWAT unit were at the scene to keep the peace and assist the BLM enforcement officers to safely leave the area. They were scared crapless!

Satanic Temple wants prayer in school to the Devil

crucifix repels vampireJust like their father, the Devil, who twists and perverts God’s words, Satanists in America are hell bent on exploiting the Constitution’s First Amendment guarantees for their purpose.

In 2009, the conservative-led Oklahoma state legislature approved a privately funded Ten Commandments monument, which was erected last year outside the state Capitol building.

While atheists and the ACLU oppose the Ten Commandment monument on the grounds of the First Amendment’s misinterpreted “separation of church and state” — a phrase not found in the First Amendment but originates in an 1802 letter by Thomas Jefferson — a group of New York-based devil worshippers who call themselves the Satanic Temple, demand their right to erect a monument to Satan next to the Ten Commandments in the name of “religious parity.”

Below is the Satanic Temple’s proposed 7-foot-tall statue of Satan as Baphomet, a goat-headed figure with horns, wings and a long beard that’s often used as a symbol of the occult. In the rendering, Satan is sitting in a pentagram-adorned throne with smiling children next to him.

Baphomet

Now, the Satanic Temple, in the name of “protecting the children,” wants in on the right to pray in school – as long as they can pray to the devil.

Brownie Marie reports for Christianity Today, April 14, 2014, that the devil worshipers say they are fighting for the rights of public school students to learn in a cruelty-free classroom.

In a press release, the Temple declared May 15 as “Protect Children Day” to promote the rights of public school students to learn in a cruelty-free classroom, free of physical and mental abuse.

Temple spokesman Lucien Greaves said, “One of the fundamental tenets of The Satanic Temple is personal sovereignty and the inviolability of one’s body and mind. Hitting a child or placing them in solitary confinement goes entirely against our beliefs. We want children to know that they are permitted to pray to Satan in school and that they can even share their religious beliefs with others in accordance with certain guidelines.”

Lucien GreavesGreaves makes the devil’s horns hand-sign (Oops! Excuse me! it’s really the “I love you” sign of deaf-mutes! No, it’s really the Texas Longhorns handsign! Sarc) at a Satanic Temple rally in Tallahassee, on Jan. 25, 2013, in support of Florida Governor Rick Scott’s Senate Bill 98.

Students are encouraged to register on Satanic Temple’s website, ProtectChildrenProject.com, where they are asked to submit their name, email address, and the name of their school in order to receive “help” from the Temple. The organization sanctimoniously insists that submission does not make one a Temple member, and is open to all denominations.

However, at the same time as ProtectChildrenProject.com provides fact sheets on physical and psychological abuse in schools, also available is a Satanic activity book.

Parents and grandparents, beware!!!!!!!!!

Dog waits 8 days in parking lot for hospitalized owner

Lauri da Costa, a homeless man in Passo Fundo, Brazil, was randomly attacked when he was smashed in the face with a rock.

So he staggered to a hospital, where doctors discovered he had melanoma on his face and must be operated on immediately.

Though homeless, da Costa has a best friend — a faithful dog named Seco.

Seco waited for da Costa outside the hospital in the parking lot, expecting his master to return soon.

But hours turned into days, and days into more than a week.

Still Seco patiently waited in the parking lot.

Hospital staff eventually began feeding Seco and giving him water.

After eight days, as da Costa was recovering from surgery, dog and owner were finally reunited.

Tears . . . .
