Dozens of Obama’s sons & daughters brawl at AZ State Fair

In his brilliant bestseller on evil, People of the Lie, the late psychiatrist M. Scott Peck, M.D., wrote that we can’t hope to cure a disease if we refuse to name it.

Once again, however, America’s pusillanimous media cower from naming the disease by refusing to report the truth.

This time, it is a “brawl” at the Arizona State Fair in Phoenix.

And as in so many similar brawls, flash mobs, knock-out games race riots, the media use the coy euphemism of “teens” in place of “blacks” — a fact that you can see with your own eyes in these screen shots I took from the 3TV news video.

Karen Brown reports for 3TV that more than two dozen teens were arrested after a large fight on the first night of the Arizona State Fair, Oct. 10, 2014.

Police say as many as 60 “teens” from the same neighborhood were involved in the fight. The “teens” even began fighting with police officers who stepped in.

An adult woman was seen kicking and hitting a police officer. She was one of two adults arrested.

The fight continued several blocks from the fairgrounds, located at 19th Avenue and McDowell Road.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety said that 35 “teens” were arrested and released to their parents.

About 75 officers from multiple agencies were assigned to the state fair.
“To prevent this from happening again, we’re gonna have a stronger presence here, said Maj. Ken Hunter with the Arizona Department of Public Safety. “At the gate, there will be more aggressive searches and we will be very visible throughout the rest of the fair.”

U.S. official says Army’s industrial base in “death spiral”

Dr. Eowyn:

The U.S. Army’s assistant secretary for acquisition, logistics and technology is sounding the alarm that our military readiness is severely compromised by sharp reductions in research, development and acquisition spending.

But Obama instead is throwing open America’s doors to illegals from Central America and, reportedly, plans to import foreign Ebola patients.

Does anyone still doubt this president’s agenda is the destruction of America?

The Association of the United States Army (AUSA) is a private, non-profit educational organization that represents America’s soldiers and supports the U.S. Army – Active, National Guard, Reserve, civilians, retirees, government civilians, wounded warriors, veterans, and family members.

Stew Magnuson reports for National Defense that on Oct. 15, 2014, the final day of the AUSA’s annual conference in Washington, DC, a panel of officials, industry leaders and academics spelled out all the problems with the U.S. armed services’s research, development and acquisition enterprise.

The panel’s moderator asked at what point will Army readiness be compromised by sharp reductions in research, development and acquisition spending.

A good reason to stock up: Ammunition pulled from Walmart shelves in Ferguson amid violent clashes

riots3

DailyMail: Ammunition has been pulled from the shelves of two Walmarts in Ferguson amid violent clashes over the police shooting of Michael Brown.

Employees were ordered to lock all bullets in a store cupboard on Monday after demonstrators stormed one of the stores and formed a barricade outside another.

Bosses in Ferguson and nearby Maplewood revealed they took the precaution in fear of looting and violence as racial divides in the Missouri city show no sign of resolve.

It is the first time Walmart has taken such action since the Sandy Hook massacre in 2012, when assault rifles were removed from shelves in Connecticut.

Addressing Ferguson, Walmart spokesman Brian Nick told KMOV-TV: ‘If there is a history of violence and looting and other activity that are going on or things that are putting associates and customers at risk – then yes, decisions can be made based on those circumstances.’

Customers who wish to buy bullets will have to discuss their intended purchase with a sales assistant, he said.

The move came just days before a report was leaked revealing Darren Wilson told a grand jury he shot Brown because he feared for his life – a claim that has stoked renewed anger across Ferguson.

Protesters have taken to the streets every week calling for Wilson’s resignation.

On Monday, more than 43 people were arrested amid protests – many inside the Maplewood Walmart. The protests were held in memory of John Crawford, a black man who was killed in an Ohio Walmart days before Brown’s shooting in Missouri.

Demonstrations are expected to escalate today after the news that a grand jury has heard an account of the shooting that shines a favorable light on the police officer.

In it, Wilson claims he was sat in his SUV on patrol when the teenager leaned through the window, punching and scratching his face. He insists he feared for his life, which prompted him to shoot twice from inside the car. However, he does not acknowledge subsequently shooting Brown four times outside the vehicle.

A number of witnesses agree that Brown and Wilson were embroiled in a physical fight through the car window, but few had an accurate vantage point to see what was happening.

They insist, however, the teenager was trying to flee and holding up his hands.

Seattle Socialist Party Wants $20 Per Hour Minimum Wage, Offers $13 Per Hour For Website Manager

do as i say

DailyCaller: The economy is stagnant — so stagnant that over 35 percent of all Americans have been reported to a collection agency for bad debt and The Washington Post has advised newly-minted college graduates to give up hope and go live in their parents’ basements.

However, The Daily Caller never dreamed it would come to this: A socialist party that wants to raise the federal minimum wage to $20 per hour is currently advertising a job for an experienced web developer paying $13 per hour.

The party is the Freedom Socialist Party, which, impressively, owns the rights to the domain name Socialism.com.

This month, the Freedom Socialist Party placed an ad on both Indeed.com and Craigslist seeking a part-time web content manager in Seattle. The job pays $13 per hour (or more, maybe, if you are really good).

In 2012, the Freedom Socialist Party’s national platform championed “full employment” — not part-time — and an increase in the minimum wage “to $20 an hour” for all employees in all jobs.

If you are interested in applying for the $13-per-hour web content manager job, it won’t be easy. For starters, you’ll need to be “familiarity with HTML/CSS” and Photoshop. The latter is a graphics editor developed by Adobe Systems, an $18 billion private company. You’ll also need “ability to self-manage and problem-solve independently.” Proficiency in Spanish and social media as well as “an interest in ongoing political events” are desirable. And absolutely no telecommuting!

The Freedom Socialist Party’s 2012 political platform was nothing if not ambitious. Among much else, it demanded a 70 percent tax rate for “the top 1 percent;” “unilateral U.S. nuclear disarmament,” “free multi-lingual public education, including ethnic studies, through college and trade school;” free abortions; bank nationalization; and the cancellation of all free-trade treaties.

Despite this month’s job offer of a part-time, 20-hour-per-week, $13-per-hour job, the party also called for a 30-hour work week for everyone “with no cut in pay” and “a guaranteed annual income.”

The Seattle branch of the Freedom Socialist Party appears to be located in an apartment building directly across the street from a Bank of America branch.

The 2012 Freedom Socialist Party candidates for president and vice president were Stephen Durham and Christina López, according to the outfit’s website. The pair doesn’t seem to have fared very well. The Federal Election Commission does not list them as the recipients of any votes. Comedian Roseanne Barr received 67,326 votes. “None of These Candidates” received 5,770 votes — in Nevada.

In case the Freedom Socialist Party yanks its ad, here’s a screenshot as it appeared on Indeed.com:

New poll finds President Ebola and the Democrats in trouble

Pres Ebola overpass signSeen on a freeway overpass somewhere in America

Meanwhile, ABC News reports, Oct. 15, 2014, that a new ABC News/Washington Post poll finds that President Ebola and the Democrats “are heading into the midterm elections in trouble.”

The poll’s findings, produced for ABC by Langer Research Associates:

  • The POS’s 40% job approval rating — STILL 40% JOB APPROVAL! — is the lowest of his career.
  • The Democratic Party’s popularity is its weakest in 30 years, with more than half of Americans (51%) seeing the party unfavorably for the first time, and just 39% see it favorably.
  • The Republican Party has a weaker 33%-56% favorable-unfavorable rating. But while the Democrats have lost 10 points in favorability just since August, the GOP has held steady – and its negative score has eased by 7 points in the past year. The GOP also benefits from its supporters’ greater likelihood of voting. All of which accounts for GOP candidates holding a 50-43% lead among likely voters for U.S. House seats in the Nov. 4 election.
  • 71% of Americans express worry about a terrorist attack.
  • 65% say they’re concerned about an Ebola epidemic.
  • Almost two-thirds say the country is headed seriously off on the wrong track.
  • Three-quarters are dissatisfied with the way the political system is working. Scorn is widely cast: Among those who are dissatisfied with the political system, two-thirds say both sides are equally to blame, with the rest dividing evenly between Obama and his party, vs. the Republicans in Congress, as the chief culprits. But as a nearly 6-year incumbent president, Obama – and by extension his party – are most at risk.
  • On which party they trust more to handle the main problems facing the country:
    • Among all Americans: it’s 39% vs. 39%.
    • Among registered voters: it’s 41% for the Republican Party vs. 38% for the Democrats.
    • But among likely voters this becomes an 8-point Republican advantage: 46% for the GOP vs. 38% for the Democrats.
  • Obama is at career lows in approval for his handling of immigration, international affairs and terrorism (long his best issue). Approval of his handling of the conflict with Islamic State insurgents in Iraq and Syria has plummeted by 15% in the last two weeks, amid questions about the progress of the air campaign now under way. (See “Obama’s ISIL strategy reexamined: air strikes ineffective; weak coalition“)
  • While Obama’s negative rating on handling the economy has eased, more Americans say they’ve gotten worse off rather than better off under his presidency:
    • 77% are worried about the economy’s future.
    • 57% say America has  been experiencing a long-term decline in living standards – all grim assessments as Election Day looms.

ABC poll on economy

Never forget that in Obama’s mind, there’s something wrong with you if you don’t think America is better off under his presidency.

What’s wrong with this picture? Ebola-Stricken Nurse Being Transferred

unreal

ABC News: A second Dallas nurse diagnosed with Ebola was transferred Wednesday to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta (see above photo).

An ambulance with a crew clad in hazardous-material suits arrived at the hospital and left for Dallas Love Field. There, aerial video showed the crew leading a person in a yellow hazmat suit and booties onto a jet. The executive jet lifted off about 5 p.m. Wednesday on its flight to Atlanta.

A statement from the Atlanta hospital said Amber Joy Vinson was being transferred to Emory from Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas. However, a spokeswoman for the Dallas hospital declined to confirm that Vinson had been removed from the facility.

Vinson was one of the nurses who cared for Thomas Eric Duncan, who died at the Dallas hospital last week of the Ebola virus. Another of Duncan’s nurses, Nina Pham, is also being treated for Ebola and was in “improved condition” Wednesday, Dr. Tom Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said.

Meanwhile, an American doctor undergoing treatment for Ebola said he had been critically ill but is now recovering and expects to be discharged soon from Emory University Hospital.

The unidentified patient — a doctor working for the World Health organization at an Ebola treatment center in Sierra Leone — arrived at the hospital on Sept. 9. He said his condition worsened soon after he arrived but he is now much better.

The doctor is one of three American aid workers brought to Emory from West Africa; the other two recovered. Emory and three other U.S. hospitals have specialized isolation units to care for Ebola with less risk of spread to health care workers.

The WHO doctor requested Emory release the statement, given the news about the two recently infected Texas nurses. But he did not give his name, and hospital officials have refused to identify him, citing the wishes of the patient and his family.
