Demorat-run Los Angeles: 124 confirmed cases of Typhus amid fears Bubonic Plague is affecting homeless

 

From Daily Mail: An explosion of rats in Los Angeles has lead to a surge in cases of Typhus and could pave the way for a public health crisis.

According to Reform California, there have been 124 confirmed cases of Typhus in LA County this year.

On top of the increase in Typhus cases, experts fear the return of a disease that wiped out a third of Europe in the 12th century, the Bubonic Plague.

Though the city has only three confirmed cases of the plague in the past 40 years, the conditions on the streets of LA make it a perfect breeding ground for plague carrying rats.

The reason for such a large influx of rats is largely attributed to the city’s increasing homeless population.

According to Dailywire, people living on LA streets grew by 16 per cent between 2018 and 2019. They added that the amount of people without somewhere to live has caused sanitation in problem areas to fall short with trash and feces piling up on the street.

These conditions can attract rodents and cause a perfect breeding ground for rat-borne diseases.

California’s governor, Gavin Newsom, acknowledged the city’s severe sanitation problem, astonished that a medieval disease could be making its rounds in a modern city like LA.

Typhus is most likely to be found in people in close proximity to rodents but other stray animals like cats and opossums also carry the disease. Symptoms typically begin within two weeks of exposure and can include chills, nausea, vomiting, body aches, loss of appetite, stomach pain and rashes.

Without treatment, Typhus can eventually lead to organ failure and death.

Plague, though not as deadly as it was 600 years ago, can still be fatal if left untreated. The most famous symptom is a large pus-filled swelling or ‘bubo’ which grows in the groin or under the armpit. This is usually accompanied by seizures, muscle cramps, fever and chills.

Goldfish lets owner stroke and hold it in his hand

 

Bon Shaw has a goldfish that is a genuine pet.

The fish demands Shaw’s attention. When Shaw puts his hand into the aquarium, the goldfish interacts with the hand and even allows Shaw to stroke and hold it in his hand.

Shaw writes:

This little guy just loves to watch me wherever I am in the room, he’ll do anything to get my attention. And when I look at him he flares out his gills and dances from side to side just hoping that I’ll come over to play. If I drop food in the aquarium he’ll ignore it and hope to play. I have to walk away to get him to go find the food which has floated away by then.

We think fish have no expressions, but this goldfish’s face clearly shows pleasure and joy in interacting with Shaw.

Simply remarkable.

Watch this and be amazed:

Did you know that a 2016 study found that archerfish can recognize human faces? In so doing, the study upended a long-standing belief that only “intelligent” creatures like humans and primates have the ability to recognize human faces because of their large and complex brains.

A 2017 study found zebrafish to be social animals in a similar way to humans and other mammals. The researchers discovered that being in a group gives zebrafish a kind of “social buffering” so they are less afraid when confronted by danger. This effect was associated with a distinct pattern of brain activation known to be involved in social buffering in mammals.

The study led the (UK) Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) to conclude that fish are sentient animals who form friendships, experience positive emotions and have individual personalities. Dr. Penny Hawkins, head of the RSPCA’s research animals department, told The Independent the study added to the growing body of evidence that fish should not be viewed as lesser animals: “I think if you are going to think it’s okay to eat any animal, then you have to realise what you are doing. You are causing the death of an animal who is sentient, who has experiences, interests.”

I already abstain from eating animal meat. To quote English philospher Jeremy Bentham (1748-1832), Introduction to the Principles of Morals and Legislation:

The French have already discovered that the blackness of skin is no reason why a human being should be abandoned without redress to the caprice of a tormentor. It may come one day to be recognized, that the number of legs, the villosity [hairiness] of the skin, or the termination of the os sacrum, are reasons equally insufficient for abandoning a sensitive being to the same fate. What else is it that should trace the insuperable line? Is it the faculty of reason, or perhaps, the faculty for discourse?…. [T]he question is not, Can they reason? nor, Can they talk? but, Can they suffer? Why should the law refuse its protection to any sensitive being?…. The time will come when humanity will extend its mantle over everything which breathes….

Now I will have to refrain from eating fish as well.

From her August 14 tweet:

“.@Walmart please stop selling guns. As the largest gun retailer in the world, you could instantly change the standard for gun ownership in America. Join us in calling on Walmart to take actions Learn more at walmartmustact.org”

She also retweeted the following tweets:

“Wondering how many more people need to die before @Walmart stops selling guns.”

“Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney: “Our officers need help. They need help. They need help with gun control. They need help with keeping these weapons out of these people’s hands … This government … don’t want to do anything about getting these guns off the streets.”

But whatdoyaknow….her latest movie, “Angel Has Fallen,” is full of men brandishing those dastardly guns. Her Twitter background is a promo for the movie.

Returning from vacation, Amsterdam businessman found his property occupied by 40 migrants

 

The Dutch-language AT5 reports, August 19, 2019, that returning from vacation last week, Salih Ozcan, a businessman in Amsterdam, the capital of the Netherlands, got a big surprise.

First, he found piles of garbage in front of his business property in Westpoort, a borough of Amsterdam.

Inside was an even worse surprise.

Some 40 “migrants” of We Are Here — a group of failed or refused asylum seekers — were squatting inside the property that Ozcan intends for his car company. He had first rented out the space, but “a bad tenant” used it for growing weed. After he evicted the tenant, he had the building refurbished.

When Ozcan tried to enter his property, one of the migrants blocked his entrance, told him to leave the premises, and threatened to call the police.

Ozcan exclaimed incredulously: “Do I have to leave my own building ?!”

A bewildered Ozcan told AT5I am a small entrepreneur who uses this property for his business. Because of them, I now don’t have a business. It’s a very bad feeling. I have no words for it at all. I can understand those people somewhat, but they don’t understand me at all. Unbelievable that this is possible in the Netherlands.”

Referring to the piles of trash outside, Ozcan said: “This is too crazy for words. Only rats and mice come here.”

The police said the squatters would not be evacuated “as a matter of urgency” and that on average, a property owner has to wait six weeks to evict. 

Ozcan meanwhile has hired a lawyer.

Your tax dollars in action. Are you getting what you paid for?

 

Never before have I seen the amount of attention that members of the House of Representative  or the Senate are currently  receiving  from the media.  Maybe it was because I wasn’t paying attention.  Well, today I am.  Maybe I should have titled it “Your tax dollars in action, Are you getting who you paid for?”

Not a day goes by that I don’t hear someone from a legislator serving in the U.S. Congress accuse the POTUS wasting taxpayer money in one way or another.   One day it’s Trump wasting money by traveling to  his home in New York, the next day he’s setting up government contracts so his business will profit.  Almost all accusations come from democrats  and obviously are “made up” with no supporting proof.  Sometimes they openly admit the accusations are untrue and their motive is only to cause damage to President Trump’s reputation.  They get away with it because, like any other lie or story they fabricate, they are protected by hiding behind “Congressional Immunity. ”  Clearly the founding fathers didn’t have this sort  of abuse in mind.

Without getting into details, “How much do we pay POTUS?  How much do we pay legistators ?

According to Title 3 of the US code, a president earns a $400,000 salary, $50,000 annual expense account, $100,000 nontaxable travel account, and $19,000 for entertainment. POTUS still remains on the payroll after leaving office. ( In 2001 Congress raised the   salary from $200,000 to $400,000 and added an extra expense allowance of $50,000 a year).

Legislators serving in the US Congress have earned $174,000 annually. House leadership earns more.  Speaker of the House at $223,500,  Majority Leader and Minority Leader at $193,400.  Senate Leadership is Majority Leader at $193,400 and Minority Leader at $193,400.

In addition to their pay each legislator  is eligible  for the following,

In the U.S. Senate, the Senators’ Official Personnel and Office Expense Account (SOPOEA).  Anywhere  from $3,043,454 to $4,815,203 for each Senator.

In the House of Representatives ,  the Members’ Representational Allowance (MRA). Anywhere from $1,207,510 to $1,383,709.

Total wages annually  is $93,217,100, with a total of $481,520,300 to SOPEA(high end) and a total of $601,913,415 to (MRA).

COMPARISON

PRESIDENT  total is $569,000 annually(president doesn’t  take a paycheck so total is 0)

SENATE AND HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES  total is $1,176,650,815 annually (congress wants a raise).

*Totals are generalization .  Not accurate to exact dollar but pretty dam close

Without getting into details such as security, etc. clearly more tax dollars  are spent on legislators.  What about election season?  What up  when POTUS is campaigning ?  What about when a legislator  is running for president? Can they campaign  and still complete their duties their current job requires?

With Trump it’s easy.  He is able to do his job and campaign  at the same time.  With the legislators it’s an entirely different story.  Apparently  legislators cannot campaign  and effectively do their jobs.  Let’s take a look at some of the legislators that are running for president.  Let’s check their  attendance when it comes to voting on new legislation.   After all, we are paying them to be there, to vote for us.

As you can see, the Democrat candidates cannot campaign and fulfill the duties their job requires. Since they are still receiving  a paycheck, ultimately, they are ripping off the American taxpayer.  If they cannot be honest now, why should anyone think they would be an honest president?  This is a situation where political party loyalty  does not matter.  Every American should be outraged.

Congress has oversite over the Executive Branch and the Judicial Branch.  It works, up to a point.  That point is when Congress has become lawless and gone rogue.  One example is when Congress doesn’t get what they want , they turn to extorsion methods, like they are doing with the Supreme Court. Another would be how they charged the Attorney  General(AG) with contempt ,  for not providing specific information which would have required  the AG to break the law.  Currently the democrat majority  in the House of Representative  has gone rogue.  It’s lawless behavior has made them one of the most powerful criminal organizations in the world.  Congress has oversite over Congress.  It is unlikely that they will remove one of their own.   They continue to run America into the ground with a strong socialist twist.  In some cases, a communist twist.  The Senate and POTUS seem to be keeping them in check.  Still, I believe that may not be enough.  Eventually it will take American Patriots to march on DC and physically remove these criminals and jail them, where they belong.

Respectfully

Deplorable patriot

 

Chicago Teachers Union group take trip to Venezuela, praise socialist leader

 

The American public education system at work: Teachers crowdfunding a trip to Venezuela only to come back and teach your children about the greatness of socialism.

From MSN: The recent trip to Venezuela by a group calling itself a Chicago Teachers Union delegation has upset some union members and expats who question the point of the tour and take issue with the group’s praise of the country’s disputed government.

The four travelers, who crowdfunded the July trip under the banner of the CTU, met with Venezuelan government officials and educators, visited a commune and were featured in local media.

They wrote online about wanting to connect with Venezuelan teachers, students and unionists, criticized U.S. economic sanctions against the South American nation and wrote admiringly of its socialism, its communes and high literacy rates.

Critics say the group glossed over Venezuela’s ongoing political and economic crises and were excessively complimentary of President Nicolas Maduro, whose administration has been accused in recent United Nations reports of “grave” human rights violations and violence against dissenters.

“I am appalled a delegation representing themselves as CTU went to Venezuela, not to support striking teachers, not to object to human rights violations, but to go on what appears to be a state-chaperoned propaganda tour,” said Karen Moody, a teacher and union member.

And though the four travelers regularly called themselves a “CTU delegation” online, the union representing close to 25,000 people has sought to distance itself from the trip, stating the CTU did not endorse, sponsor or fund the trip.

Asked on WTTW’s “Chicago Tonight” last week about “some controversy” surrounding the excursion, union President Jesse Sharkey said: “Members go all kinds of places in the summer. This was neither an official trip nor something that was funded by the union. This is a group of people who are members of the CTU who decided to go to Venezuela.

Yet, the official CTU Twitter account retweeted some of the group’s updates, including a blog post titled “Introduction to CTU Delegation to Venezuela.”

CTU also retweeted another post by teacher Sarah Chambers, one of the travelers and a member of the CTU executive board, which read: “While staying in #Venezuela, we didn’t see a single homeless person. USA is the richest country in the world; yet, there are homeless people everywhere. Over 17k CPS students are homeless … This is why @CTULocal1 is fighting for fair housing #CTUAgainstVezIntervention.”

Not a homeless person in Venezuela…

That prompted a rebuke from another Twitter user: “What the Delegation fails to acknowledge is they used the CTU name to raise the funds, to set up meetings, to blog their ‘findings.’ This was never voted on. They don’t get it. Irresponsible and reckless.”

Chambers, who appears to have made her Twitter account private, responded by referencing a resolution passed by CTU’s House of Delegates to “oppose the invasion of Venezuela.”

She added in her tweet: “Have you visited Venezuela & spoke to 100s there? As a teacher, I teach my students to be critical thinkers, to get primary sources, listen to ppl’s stories & do research before just believing any news. I suggest you do the same.”

Blackout in Venezuela

When contacted by the Tribune, Chambers deferred to the group’s blog, Radical Educator Collective. The three who traveled with her – two other educators and a union organizer – did not respond to interview requests. Online, the group was clear the union wasn’t helping pay for the trip. At least 55 people donated to a GoFundMe campaign titled “Send CTU Strikers to Venezuela,” an apparent reference to their involvement in the CPS charter school strikes last school year.

In the photo accompanying the campaign, the three educators are wearing CTU hats. In comments, some donors expressed solidarity. One $50 donor wrote of admiration for his colleagues: “Proud of the CTU for their brave and visionary anti-imperialist resolution and enactment of ‘teacher-to-teacher’ solidarity between Chicago and Venezuelan teachers!”

A July 9 blog post titled “Introduction to CTU Delegation to Venezuela” states, “This blog represents the members delegation of the Chicago Teacher’s Union that are currently in Venezuela to learn from educators and activists on the ground. We are three rank and file charter school teachers and one CTU organizer. We organized this delegation ourselves and fundraised for the trip independent of the CTU.”

In the latest post, one member of the group wrote that she’d wanted to observe a method for teaching reading that combines numeracy and literacy skills. She was also curious about if and how educators incorporated the country’s social movements into their curriculum, she wrote.

They visited a commune and talked to educators involved with Mision Robinson, a social welfare program to improve literacy started under former President Hugo Chavez.

Though the group was inspired by the resolution, the opinions on the blog are their own, they wrote.

Ana Gil-Garcia, who co-founded the Illinois Venezuelan Alliance and teaches in the College of Education at Northeastern Illinois University, said the trip was unacceptable, though it would be different if they’d gone on their own, without using the CTU brand.

“Once you go there as a delegation of a very powerful union like the Chicago Teachers Union, it’s questionable,” Gil-Garcia said, adding the trip could come off as the union endorsing the Maduro regime, which she said has killed and imprisoned opponents and contributed to widespread food shortages in the country.

“That’s what makes me really upset about it,” she said. “The Chicago Teachers Union should be very objective because the membership is formed by people with different ways of thinking.”

Lindsey Graham claims we’ll soon know the ugly truth about Russian probe & it will be “damning” for intelligence communities

 

Well, if you got the goods sir, produce them NOW. Because I’m not going to hold my breath.

From Daily Mail: Republican senator Lindsey Graham said Sunday that the Inspector General’s report on how the investigation into ties between the Trump campaign and Russia began will be ‘ugly and damning’ for the Department of Justice.

During an interview with Fox News, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Graham said the Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report is ‘going to be ugly and damning regarding the DOJ handling of the Russian probe.’

Graham said that Horowitz’s report is now expected to be released in the coming weeks and he is determined to have the report released so that the American people can find out what it says about the Russia probe.

When asked why the report, which was expected to have been submitted months ago, was delayed for so long, Graham said that ‘Every time you turn around you find something new.’

He added that ‘Mr. Horowitz is doing a very in-depth dive’ into how the FBI made use of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act in an effort to obtain a warrant allowing them to monitor Trump’s former campaign adviser Carter Page.

Graham said that when Horowitz submits his report, the DOJ will evaluate it for classified information, but that he wants to ‘declassify as much as possible. ‘I want the American public to hear the story, I want all this information to come out,’ Graham said. ‘I don’t want people to believe what I say about it, I want them to read for themselves how bad it was.’

Graham said he wants ‘people to see how off the rails this investigation got’ and that he wants ‘people to be held accountable.’

‘I am patient,’ Graham said. ‘I am not in a hurry, I want to do it right.’

Graham said that he wanted George Papadopoulos, a former Trump campaign staffer who pleaded guilty to making false claims to the FBI, to testify in front of his Senate Judiciary Committee after Horowitz’s report is released.

The senator said he believes that Papadopoulos’ interview transcripts reveal that he was ‘clearly’ not working with the Russians as has been claimed.

Papadopoulos is said to have been responsible for initiating the Russia probe by telling an Australian diplomat that he had heard that Russia had damaging information about Hillary Clinton. The diplomat was said to have alerted US officials about what the ex-campaign staffer said.

Graham also noted that he believe the FBI’s application for a FISA warrant was a ‘fraud on the court’ because the FBI relied in Christopher Steele’s dossier to get the warrant, even though Steele was, what Graham called, ‘an unreliable informant’ who disliked Trump.

‘U.S. needs illegal aliens to do work that Americans won’t’ is a lie

 

We are told, again and again, that the U.S. needs illegal aliens to work in jobs that Americans refuse.

As an example, MSNBC’s correspondent Marian Atencio maintains that only Latinos can do chicken-processing jobs because it is “pretty grueling work,” which is why “poultry is an industry that has become — as many of these industries that rely on low skilled workers — dependent on Latin American immigration.”

That’s a lie.

Jeff Amy reports for the AP (via ABC News) that on August 7, 2019, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents arrested 243 Latino workers suspected of working without legal authorization at two Koch Foods’ chicken processing plants in Mississippi. The Koch Foods arrests were part of a massive ICE workplace sting of 680 Latino workers at seven Mississippi chicken processing plants.

Note: Koch Foods has no relation to Koch Industries or the famous Koch brothers. The founders of Koch Foods and Koch Industries, both named Fred Koch, are two entirely different people.

Five days after the ICE arrests, on August 12, some 150 locals (U.S. citizens) were at a job fair at the same Koch Foods plants in hopes of filling some of those now-empty positions. The company is also trying to hire workers with online ads.

The AP reports (via ABCNews):

By 10 a.m., a crowd of dozens was on hand, and steady stream of people came and went. Most were black and spoke with accents from the American South. A few appeared white or Hispanic.

Many of the applicants, including 25-year-old Eddie Nicholson Jr. of Louisville, were chicken plant veterans. They understand the arduous and sometimes dangerous work of slaughtering, butchering and packaging chicken, from hanging up live chickens, to pulling off skin, to cutting with super-sharp knives, to boxing up chicken, much of it done in near-freezing temperatures. That draining work, at relatively low wages, leads many people to quit, so chicken plants are always hiring..

Angela Stuesse, an anthropology professor at the University of North Carolina who spent years among labor organizers in Morton and nearby towns, said the desire for cheap, docile labor led poultry firms to begin recruiting Spanish-speakers in the late 1990s. At first, they were people who could legally work. But they were eventually replaced by Mexicans, Guatemalans and others who often lacked legal working papers. Later, came a wave from Argentina, Uruguay and Peru.

Mississippi’s unemployment is high, and the wages are low:

  • According to a recent Center for Immigration Studies report, The Employment Situation of Immigrants and Natives in the First Quarter of 2019, the 2000-2009 labor-force participation rate in Mississippi dropped by 9%, from 78% to 69%, which left 494,000 U.S.-born adults out of the workforce in 2019.
  • According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, half of the meat cutters in the state were being paid less than $12.23 per hour.

But Breitbart‘s Neil Munro points out that wages have spiked upwards for Americans when employers were forced to give up their illegal workers:

  • Enforcement actions aided African-American bakers in Chicago and Somali refugees in Iowa and throughout the Midwest after the 2006 enforcement at the Swift & Co. meatpacking company.
  • As a result of the improved economy under President Trump, chicken processing firms are under pressure to raise wages. As an example, Sanderson Farms, which employ about 15,000 workers in Mississippi, Georgia, Louisiana, North Carolina, and Texas, raised their hourly wages to $15/hour after June 2. (AP)

Munro also points out the negative consequences of the U.S. government’s immigration policy that floods the country with  cheap, foreign, white-collar college graduates and blue-collar labor:

  • Each year, about 4 million young Americans join the workforce after graduating from high school or university. This total includes roughly 800,000 Americans who graduate with skilled degrees in business or health care, engineering or science, software or statistics.
  • But each year, the federal government imports about 1.1 million legal immigrants, on top of the existing population of 1.5 million white-collar visa workers — including approximately 1 million H-1B workers and spouses — and 500,000 blue-collar visa workers.
  • The government also prints out more than one million work permits for foreigners, tolerates about 8 million illegal workers, and does not punish companies for employing the hundreds of thousands of illegal migrants who sneak across the border or overstay their legal visas each year.
  • This policy of inflating the labor supply with cheap, foreign, white- and blue-collar workers:
    • Boosts economic growth for investors because it transfers wages to investors and ensures that employers do not have to compete for American workers by offering higher wages and better working conditions.
    • Shifts enormous wealth from young employees towards older investors, widens wealth gapsreduces high-tech investmentincreases state and local tax burdens, and hurts children’s schools and college educations.
    • Discourages Americans away from high-tech careers and sidelines millions of marginalized Americans, including many who are now struggling with fentanyl addictions.
    • Moves business investment and wealth from blue-states  heartland to red-states coastal citiesexplodes rents and housing costsshrivels real estate values in the Midwest, and rewards investors for creating low-tech, labor-intensive workplaces.
