US Embassies in Ebola-Stricken Countries Are "Expediting" the Processing of Visas for Non-US Citizens to Enter US

The primary responsibility of the leader of “any” country is to safeguard the wellbeing, security, and health of the citizens of their country.  Current polls indicate that the American people have lost confidence in the elected leader of the United States, because the Obama administration is not taking the necessary steps to restrict potentially infected passengers from Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone in West Africa from entering the United States, in order to safeguard the lives and security of American citizens from being infected with the Ebola virus.  The occupant of the Oval Office responsibility is to protect the health and safety of all Americans from being infected with diseases being carried by millions of infected Illegal aliens flooding across the wide open southern border.

To date 22 countries have imposed travel bans on passengers with passports from West African countries (including the African nations of Togo, Gabon, the Ivory Coast, Senegal, Rwanda, Chad, South Sudan, Namibia, Angola, South Africa, Botswana, Congo, Lesotho, Equatorial Guinea, Kenya, and Madagascar) and 14 other countries have imposed travel restrictions on passengers with passports from West Africa.  Yet CDC Director Thomas Friedman and senior Obama administration officials have said restricting passengers, who may be infected with the Ebola virus, from entering the United States would be racist and can’t be done because it would negatively affect the economies of those countries.  So the US Embassies in Ebola infected countries continue to issue visas for non-US citizens so they can enter the United States.  According to Judicial Watch, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has even been “expediting” visas for the “Ebola countries.”  DHS officials would not have been doing so, if they had not been instructed to expedite those visas by officials in the Obama administration. 

It has been 1 month since a 42 year old Liberian passenger from West Africa, infected with the Ebola virus arrived in Dallas.  He lied while being screened on departure from West Africa and lied a second time on being screened on entry to the US, he was then permitted to enter the United States without being quarantined (his lies are proof that screening does not work).  He eventually came down with Ebola, and after prolonged treatment, succumbed.  Subsequently two highly trained infectious disease health care nurses, who had been following the inept CDC guidelines while treating the infected passenger, also became infected with the Ebola virus; 75 people who came in contact with the deceased passenger and the 2 nurses are being monitoring for Ebola.  In addition hundreds of passenger who were on a Frontier Airline with one of the infected nurses, after the CDC allowed her to fly on a commercial airline, are also being monitored.   

Just one infected airline passenger has resulted in a requirement for health officials to monitor over 300 Americans because they have the possibility of coming down with Ebola.  Despite the massive health care controls and costs that have resulted from only one Ebola infected incoming passenger from a West African country who entered the United States, CDC Director Thomas Friedman, who was a community organizer following his graduation from Oberlin College in 1982 and who is recognized as an extreme social justice advocate, is firmly against a travel ban.   Even though Friedman knows that the US Health Care system in the United States does not have the capacity to isolate and treat more than 4 Ebola infected patients at any one time, he continues to vigorously opposed a travel ban on arriving passengers with passports from West Africa or by quarantining them.  

Obama has refused to put a procedure in place to either restrict the entry passenger from West Africa or quarantining them.  We know that 150 passengers from West Africa are being allowed to enter the United States every day.  The American people have been  told that only 94% of those 150 passengers entering the US each day are being screened at 5 US International Airports,  when passengers from West Africa are flying into 9 US International airports (and we know that screening does not work).  So the screening procedures that do not work, and established up by CDC Director Friedman to control a killer disease are so poorly established that they still allow 3285 passengers from Ebola infected West African countries to avoid the screening measures Friedman set up (we know screening has not work, because passengers lie).

The polls indicate the American people are very concerned about the transmission of the Ebola virus and that 66% of them want a travel ban imposed on all passengers arriving in the United States from West Africa.  Yesterday The Washington Times reported that experts in infectious disease control, point to an experiment 25 years ago that proved one Ebola strain in monkeys had the potential for becoming airborne.  Yet Judicial Watch, the government watchdog group, alleged on Friday that Obama is formulating plans to admit Ebola-infected non-US citizens into the US for treatment---we are finding it hard to believe that report is accurate, because it would be an insane indefensible new Obama administration policy if it were true.    

From the turn of the century until Illegal Immigrants from Mexico were allowed to violate Federal Immigration Laws, no immigrants were ever allowed to set foot on the US mainland unless they were first landed on an island in New York Harbor, Ellis Island, so they could be screened to determine if they were carriers of infectious and communicable diseases.  For the last 6 years, CDC Director Friedman has not done his job and looked the other way while millions of Illegal aliens have flooded across the wide open southern border, with the knowledge that many have been carriers of infectious diseases.  Because in the past illegal aliens clinics processing them have found that a percentage of them have been infected with many communicable diseases, such as tuberculosis, whooping cough, smallpox, cholera, diphtheria, plague, yellow fever, measles, leprosy, pertussis, enterovirus D-68, etc.    

Most recently 90,000 Illegal aliens up to age 18 from Central America, improperly referred to as children by the Obama administration and the left of center liberal media establishment, flooded across the wide open southern border, along with Illegal aliens adults masquerading as their chaperones.  Yet CDC Director Friedman did not insist that those illegal alien children be medically screen for infectious diseases nor did he quarantine any of them, before they were immediately transported to all 50 states.  After the Illegal alien children entered the United States, the Obama administration acted as human smugglers and flew the Illegal immigrant children to all 50 states forcing their enrollment in public grammar schools.   

Hospitals across the nation began reporting an explosion of a severe respiratory illnesses among children and have been reporting an outbreak of an epidemic of the enterovirus (referred to as either D-68 .or EV-D68).  That enterovirus epidemic occurred only after the surge of Illegal alien children flooded across the wide open southern border from Central America, a region where the D-68 is prevalent among young children.  Up until the surge there was no enterovirus epidemic in the US and D-68 was rare; between 1970 and 2005 only 26 cases of D-68 were reported in the US.  In the below listed article, to date 27,876 cases of D-68 in 46 states have been reported to the CDC since August 18th, but those cases have been covered up.  Six children and 2 adults have died to date from the epidemic.  CDC Director Friedman refuses to explain where the epidemic that infected more than 27,000 children came from and has been spreading misleading information about the epidemic.  

Children’s Hospital Colorado treated 3,600 children between August 18 and September 24, and at least 692 since.  On September 5th, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital saw  a one day record of 540 children.  The emergency room was filled to capacity in USA Children’s & Women’s Hospital in Mobile, Alabama that reported 340 cases by September 12th.  Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Missouri had 450 patients as of September 7th, 60 of whom required intensive care.  At least 6 Chicago area hospitals were so overwhelmed that they stopped admitting patients under 18 “until further notice.”  Many infected children across the nation are experiencing some form of paralysis.  The Obama administration and the left of center liberal media establishment have covered up the epidemic brought to the United States by Illegal alien children up to age 18 being allowed to enter the wide open southern border without being quarantined. 

Obama administration officials and CDC Director Friedman have been telling the press and the American people that deploying 4000 (the number has increased from 3000) improperly trained members of the US Armed Forces the Reserves into an Ebola plagued and infectious environment will not result in their being infected with the Ebola virus.  Yet we know that 277 doctors, nurses, and health care professionals in Western Africa who took every conceivable precaution possible to avoid contracting Ebola are now dead.  So when CDC Director Friedman blamed the poor nurses who contracted Ebola, and said they “breached protocol” and repeated the Obama administration mantra that it is extremely hard to contract Ebola---he wasn’t telling the truth, but the American people are now becoming very familiar with Obama administration politically appointed officials lying to the American public.   

Because of how the Obama administration has handled this very serious Ebola crisis, resulting from just one Ebola infected case, and because medical professionals in infectious disease control have warned that there is a very serious risk in deploying 4000 untrained military personnel from the 101st Airborne Division and military Reservists to West Africa’s Ebola infested environment, the American people have a high degree of concern for their safety.  Americans have watched while Obama has disregarded warnings about the health and safety of military personnel being improperly trained and then deployed to an infectious disease environment.  We have been informed that members of the US Armed Forces and Reserve personnel with only receive 4 hours of training before being deployed to Ebola infested West African.  

Common sense and sound judgment should have dictated that Obama only send highly trained civilian contractors with in depth medical experience who knew how to deal with infectious disease control.  To order military personnel who have been involved in combat for 13 years, are suffering mentally from the prolonged combat, and are not able to resist an order to be deployed to fight an infectious killer disease.  To take military personnel away from their families, and expose them to the incredible risk of contracting Ebola is unconscionable.  It is another example of a string of extremely poor judgment calls by Obama in his handling this Ebola health crisis.  The mission for the US Military is not to deploy throughout the world to fight dangerous infectious disease; the mission of the US Armed Forces is to combat enemies of the Republic, to combat terrorist throughout the world, and to secure the borders of the United States.

Health care professionals and civilian contractors who are professionally trained in infectious disease prevention should have been sent to West Africa; common sense dictates that doctors, nurses, and lab technicians who are properly trained and understand how to deal with Ebola are the personnel who should deal with Ebola.  CDC Director Friedman is now telling the broader medical community in the US that all hospital and medical personal in the US must be “retrained,” because they haven’t seemed to be able to handle the medical procedures designed to prevent them from contracting Ebola.  If that is true, then members of the 101 Airborne Division and Reservists, with 4 hours of training, who have never been involved in controlling infectious diseases can’t possibly be expected to protect themselves from the Ebola infectious disease.  

If the occupant of the Oval Office ordered the CDC to quarantine all arriving passengers with passports from Ebola infected countries in West Africa,  he would also have had to require the quarantining of Illegal aliens flooding across the wide open southern border.  It would not be politically correct to close the wide open southern border----so political correctness is hazarding the health of the nation.  For one month, the American people have heard representatives of the Obama administration and CDC Director Friedman poorly presented and inept augments about why the United States should not restrict entry of passengers with visas from West Africa or quarantine them for the 21 ingesting period.  Yet 22 countries have already imposed a travel ban and have restricted all travel, and 14 other countries are imposing other control procedures on passengers with passports from West Africa.   

Because the Secretary of Health Education & Welfare, CDC Director Friedman, and the occupant of the Oval Office haven’t been able to properly deal with this health care crisis, the Occupant of the Oval Office decided to appoint someone qualified to deal with the problems he is faced with.  Instead of appointing a public health medically trained professional in infectious disease control, Obama appointed another Czar who is an attorney (which is nonsense on the face of it), and has him reporting to Susan Rice (a further indication of extremely poor management).  The new Ebola Czar is simply a political appointment to take the pressure off of himself ,and CDC Director Friedman, who has proven to be incompetent in his handling of the epidemic affecting over 27,000 children, and he has also proven to be way over his head in dealing with this Ebola crisis.   

There is no reason why for the next 6 months Obama should not order the State Department to instruct the Consular Service to cease issuing visas to all travelers from West Africa; that action would permit health care medical teams and hospitals throughout the nation with the required time to be properly trained to deal with the potential of an Ebola epidemic.  Once that is accomplished, and for the health and safety of all Americans, all Immigrants with the potential risk of carrying infectious disease, whether entering the nation as airline passengers or entering the United States across the wide open southern border, must be quarantined as they once were on Ellis Island (and just as CBP Inspectors currently quarantines dogs and cats).  That can only be accomplished if Obama will deploy 4000 US Military personnel to the wide open southern border to secure it once and for all.

We encourage you to support the election of the 31 endorsed Combat Veterans For Congress listed on the Endorsements page through the above website menu, they will work to close the wide open southern border.

How an Obama Administration Policy is Destroying Lives 

James Simpson  —   October 16, 2014

In late August and early September, hospitals across the nation began reporting an explosion of severe respiratory illnesses among children. Children’s Hospital Colorado treated about 3,600 children between August 18 and September 24, and at least 692 since. On September 5th, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital saw a one day record of 540 kids. The emergency room was filled to capacity. Mobile, Alabama’s USA Children’s and Women’s Hospital reported 340 cases by September 12th. Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Missouri had seen 450 patients as of September 7th, 60 of whom required intensive care. At least six Chicago area hospitals were so overwhelmed that they stopped admitting patients under 18 “until further notice.” Many infected children across the country are experiencing some form of paralysis. Six children and at least two adults have died.

Government health officials haven’t offered any explanation for the unusual outbreak. The Centers for Disease Control has pointedly refused to disclose the states where children have died or even specific locations of outbreaks. State and local officials are similarly closed mouthed. Except for suggesting routine precautions, public officials largely refuse to offer any details whatsoever, and in some cases have spread misinformation. And the media seem incapable of penetrating the wall of silence, simply repeating the official narrative. But there is significant, almost irrefutable evidence that this outbreak is the direct result of this year’s illegal alien invasion from Central America.

Frequently called the “mystery” illness, no healthcare professional has offered an explanation for how it got here or why it is hitting children now. The worst cases have been identified as stemming from Enterovirus D68 (EV-D68). Enterovirus are among the most common pathogens, responsible for a wide variety of illnesses, including polio, but usually infections are mild. There are over 100 Enterovirus variants and about 10 to 15 million cases in the U.S. each year. The CDC explains away the outbreak by citing this figure, and noting that many more children die each year from influenza.

But this outbreak is different. Before this year, the D68 strand was almost unheard of. Between 1970 and 2005, only 26 cases of EV-D68 were reported in the U.S. Yet this year, in less than two months, the CDC has reported 780 cases in 46 states, and there are likely many more undiagnosed. Half the specimens tested by the CDC are EV-D68, but since August there have been thousands—perhaps even tens of thousands—of severe respiratory cases treated around the country that the CDC has not tested. D68 also seems to be associated with the paralysis occurring among many of the infected, but doctors are unsure how. In early 2014, a polio-like virus crippled 25 children in California. Enterovirus was suspected, and the symptoms were similar to those seen among children in Asia and Australia.

Unprecedented

During the start of any school year, an uptick in communicable illnesses among children is typical, but this year’s outbreak of serious respiratory illnesses is extraordinary. Children’s Mercy Hospital’s division director for Infectious Diseases, Dr. Mary Anne Jackson, called it “unprecedented,” adding that “It’s worse in terms of scope of critically ill children who require intensive care…I’ve practiced for 30 years in pediatrics, and I’ve never seen anything quite like this.”

The timing of the outbreak is also unusual. While human enterovirus (HEV) are common in the summer, they mostly infect the gastrointestinal tract. Human rhinoviruses (HRV), which cause the common cold, are the usual suspects in respiratory illnesses, but those become prevalent in flu season—the winter months.

Criminal Negligence

The flood of illegal alien minors coming across our southern border this year is the elephant in the room that no one is mentioning. Most of these youths traveled from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras—the so-called Northern Triangle states. Unlike America, where EV-D68 is almost unheard of, in Central and South America it is very common. A recent study of Central and South American young people (ages 0 – 25) infected with influenza-like infections (ILI), identified HRVs (548) and HEVs (84). EV-D68 was identified in 12 percent of the HEV infections. While not a lot in absolute numbers (10) that is an astounding rate when compared with the historical rarity of D68 in American children. Among age groups, those from under one-year-old to age five had two-thirds of all HEVs. These were random samples. See the chart below.

The report concludes:

In Latin America as in other regions, HRVs and HEVs account for a substantial proportion of respiratory viruses identified in young people with ILI, a finding that provides additional support for the development of pharmaceuticals and vaccines targeting these pathogens.

The only Northern Triangle country included in the study was El Salvador, but 50 percent of the El Salvador group had HEV, a larger percentage than any other country.

According to Customs and Border Protection (CBP) a total of 15,800 Salvadoran youths between 0 and 17 years of age were apprehended at the border between January 1 and August 31 of this year. Another 31,543 Honduran and Guatemalan youths came with them. Furthermore, this is not the total count. To date, 68,434 unaccompanied alien youths have been apprehended this year.

Most were not unaccompanied either. News reports regularly “forget” to mention that another 65,000 “family units” actually accompanied them. In total, 242,329 “Other Than Mexicans” crossed the border so far this year. The swamped holding facilities used for these illegals acted as incubators for a host of virulent illnesses, including swine flu, tuberculosis—even drug resistant TB—pneumonia, many other undiagnosed respiratory illnesses, measles, chicken pox, and numerous parasites. According to health officials, Enterovirus infections are usually the “fecal-to-oral route.” However, significantly, respiratory and oral-to-oral infection occur “in crowded living conditions.” The virus can survive for days at room temperature.

The DHS Inspector General acknowledged that “Many UAC and family units require treatment for communicable diseases, including respiratory illnesses, tuberculosis, chicken pox, and scabies.” The CDC called it an “urgent humanitarian situation.” A Federal Law Enforcement Training Center facility in Artesia, New Mexico used to house illegals was locked down following an outbreak of chickenpox this summer. CBP personnel have become sick with scabies, chicken pox and lice while tending the illegals in border facilities.

CBP Agent Ron Mermen is the health and safety director of National Border Patrol Council Local 1613. He works in the San Diego, California area and charged that DHS“knowingly transported illegal immigrants to facilities that were unequipped to process them; disregarded repeated warnings…about the public-health risks posed by the immigrants, many of whom were suffering from infectious diseases; rejected multiple offers of assistance from local officials; and suspended law-enforcement operations at part of America’s southern border…”

He said that more illegals were sent to his Border Patrol facility than it could handle, and they were released without proper health screening, adding that the order to do this was “concealed for unknown reasons” from the public and lawmakers. Finally, he said that caring for the flood of illegals took CBP away from its primary job of protecting the border. As a result drug traffickers had an open invitation to operate in the critical area along California’s I-15 Interstate. The border was essentially left unchecked. Zermeno’s reward was to be disciplined for blowing the whistle.

Given the many children and families likely carrying EV-D68 and other pathogens before reaching the border, the rapid spread of disease within these holding facilities, and poor or non-existent disease screening, it is not unreasonable to believe that thousands could have been dispersed throughout the U.S. with either a live infection or carrying the virus.

Information Blackout

Media interest in this story has been tepid. When the outbreak began, the sheer number of cases was newsworthy; then the appearance of EV-D68 added fuel to the fire. But since mid-September, little has been published—despite the fact that eight people with D68 have died. Only three of the eight have been identified and little information about the other five has been published. All we know about the two adults, for example, is that they were treated at a Colorado hospital. We know nothing about the other three children. Media have reported the outbreaks, but no one is digging at all.

The CDC will not disclose anything except their regularly updated chart of states, which only reports the total number of D68 cases. They will not disclose which cities, or even which states, have had fatalities from the illness. It would help to know at least the total cases broken down by state. The CDC has the information, since it is the only facility with the capability to test for D68. When reached last week, CDC spokesperson Darlene Foote refused to quantify the number of D68 cases by state. Karen Mason of the CDC’s Division of Viral Diseases said that the CDC defers to the state health departments on such details, and suggested contacting them for the information. They would provide no further information.

State health departments had little to add. When queried about total state cases in Virginia, for example, the health department responded that they didn’t keep track of total cases because EV-D68 is not reportable under Virginia code and they do not have the facilities to test for it in any event. Following confirmation by the CDC, Virginia did report cases in the “northern region of Virginia, as well as the central and eastern regions.” They would not disclose any more detailed information regarding the locations of these outbreaks, citing “privacy” concerns.

It is virtually impossible to learn directly which schools took in this year’s crop of illegal children. As result of a liberal 1982 Supreme Court decision, all public schools must accommodate them. Furthermore, School districts are not allowed to ask about a student’s citizenship or immigration status, nor can they inquire of parents’ immigration status. To establish residency for eligibility to a certain school district, the parent can provide minimal proof, for example a utility or phone bill, or even just an affidavit.

Nonetheless, we can confirm that this year’s illegals have been placed in almost every county that has reported an outbreak of EV-D68. HHS provides a list of 137 counties within the U.S. where illegals have been placed this year. It is incomplete because they only list those counties that received 50 or more illegals. The table below lists those counties, and the number of unaccompanied alien children (UACs) placed in them; and compares that with reported Enterovirus outbreak locations. Note that while hundreds of cases have been reported nationwide, only a few states have identified where outbreaks occurred.

a Influenza-Like Infections
b Uncertain how many, if any illegals were located in these counties

Child Deaths 

We can also confirm that schools where outbreaks have occurred all accept “undocumented children” into their programs, although it was impossible to determine whether or not this included this year’s arrivals.

Four-year-old Mercer County, New Jersey, pre-schooler Eli Waller died in late September as the direct result of EV-D68. His was the first case linked directly to the disease. The Hamilton school district has a population of 14 percent “foreign born,” mostly from Guatemala. Yardville Elementary, the school he attended, has an English as a second language (ESL) program, although it has a lower proportion than other district schools.

Ten-year-old Emily Ortrando of Cumberland, Rhode Island was admitted to the hospital with EV-D68 in late September and died of complications resulting from a staph infection shortly thereafter. Doctors are unsure what role D68 played in her death, but it likely at least reduced her resistance to infection. Community Elementary, where Emily attended school, is one of six elementary schools in the district, all of which offer ESL. The district boasts that it is a magnet for such students.

Madeline Reid, a twenty-one month old toddler from Clinton Township, Michigan, died on October 10 following three weeks on life support in Detroit hospitals. Clinton is in Macomb County, a suburb of Detroit. While the HHS chart only lists Kent County, home to the city of Grand Rapids, UACs would likely be in or near Detroit as well. In nearby Washtenaw County, a baby has become paralyzed by Enterovirus.

In Alabama, five year old Kinley Galbreath has been completely paralyzed for one month, able to communicate with her mother only by blinking her eyes. She was ill for one week before being admitted to intensive care. She said, “Mommy, my hands are going numb.”

There were 12 cases of paralysis and at least two adult deaths in Denver, Colorado, which recorded a huge number of young patients with severe respiratory illnesses in August and September. The Denver area is home to a very large illegal alien population, despite recording placement of only 64 UACs this year. Information regarding the other three deaths is simply nonexistent.

In Baltimore, Maryland, nine-year-old Drew Ratajczak made news following hospitalization for D68-like symptoms. Like Virginia and other states, Maryland’s state health department says there is no requirement for doctors to report individual cases, so his case was never diagnosed. Fortunately he recovered. Drew is a student at Red House Run elementary in Rosedale. According to the school’s website, 6 percent of students are enrolled in the Limited English Proficiency program. The principal said that there were new children admitted to the LEP program this year, but they are every year. She could not say whether or not these children were among this year’s flood of illegals. They are not provided that information, and as cited earlier, they are not allowed to ask. She said that the kids are sent to the school and they must accommodate them, no questions asked.

So the death toll is eight and counting. Thousands of children have fallen ill. Some are partially paralyzed. Nasty diseases eradicated in the U.S., like tuberculosis and polio, may be getting reintroduced, courtesy of our southern neighbors. New diseases, unheard of in the U.S., like Dengue Fever, the deadly Chagas Disease, and Chikungunyahave already appeared. SOUTHCOM Commander, General John Kelly recently suggested that if Ebola becomes prevalent in Mexico or Central America, then “it’s Katie bar the door.” There will be a mass rush for the border as millions surge north to escape or seek medical attention. The first case of Ebola in Mexico was diagnosed in August.

Meanwhile, President Obama continues to promote his open borders agenda. In a speech on October 2nd at the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute awards dinner he said, “No force on earth can stop us!” Obama also mentioned that two illegal alien “dreamers” accompanied him in the presidential limo from the White House to the event.

Far from being a random development, the growing public concerns over Ebola and the Enterovirus appear to be playing into the administration’s game plan to distract public attention from the accumulation of scandals that have as yet elicited zero accountability from the Perpetrator-in-Chief and his minions.
 

W.H.O. Contradicts CDC; Ebola can be Spread via Coughing, Sneezing & Touching Contaminated Surfaces

In the below listed article, the World Health Organization (W. H. O.) is contradicting the Obama administration appointed bureaucrats at CDC who keep telling the American people, that sending 3000 members of the US Armed Forces to fight Ebola in Western Africa will not negatively affect their health.  

CDC has also been assuring the American people that there is no need to control entry of all people arriving from West Africa or canceling those flights, when other countries health care professionals are controlling entry of people trying to entry from West Africa and cancelling all flights from West Africa.  

 

Any infectious disease initiative in West Africa should have been initiated by the United Nations, mobilizing representatives from W. H. O. who are well-trained healthcare workers, doctors, and nurses specializing in infectious disease control.  Controlling Ebola in the world is not a US Military mission.

 

Lt Gen William Boykin said. “At a time when our military has been at war for 13 years, suicide is at an all-time high, [post-traumatic stress disorder] is out of control and families are being destroyed as a result of 13 years of war, the last thing that Obama should be doing is sending people into West Africa to fight Ebola.” 

Lt Gen Boykin pointed out that there will be no inoculation for Ebola prior to troop deployment. Defense Department spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby said that the only preparation service members will receive before heading to West Africa will be “a briefings” on the disease.  The Obama administration has been repeatedly warned that Ebola will be contracted by those military personnel who are being forced to go to West Africa, regardless of the fear the military member has for their own health, and the military member in west Africa has for the health of their families and children. 

“It still comes back to the question whether this is a military mission,” Lt Gen Boykin said. “At this point, no. It is not a military mission, and given the 13 years of war, this is the last thing we should be doing.”

Instead of deploying 3000 US military personnel to the southern border of the United States to secure it, the current resident of the Oval Office is sending 3000 members of the Armed Forces to West Africa with the threat that they may be infected by Ebola.  

 

The serious threat of infectious diseases in the United States  is being enabled by the Obama administration and the inept leadership of the Congress who are doing absolutely nothing while thousands of Illegal aliens, carrying infectious diseases, enter the nation thru the wide open southern border.  

 

Following the entry of thousands of Illegal alien children, the Obama administration is acting as human smugglers by flying those Illegal infected aliens to populate all 50 states and forcing enrolment of their children in public schools.  Those newly entering Illegal aliens children are suspected of being the carriers of infectious disease, infecting American children with various diseases, including new strange infectious diseases never experienced before in public schools.   

 

The stakes are so high, that the American people can’t possibly trust politicians at the CDC and the Obama administration who are telling them not to worry, because they are taking proper steps to prevent Ebola spreading in the country-----every preventive measure should be taken, including restricting entry of people from West Africa unless they are held in isolation off shore for 2 months before allowing entry, and replacing 3000 US Armed Forces personnel deployed to West Africa with properly trained healthcare professionals.

W.H.O. contradicts CDC, admits Ebola can spread via coughing, sneezing and by touching contaminated surfaces

Wednesday, October 08, 2014
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger
Tags: Ebola transmissiondirect contactaerosolized particles

 

(Natural News) The World Health Organization has issued a bulletin which confirms what Natural Newshas been asserting for weeks: that Ebola can spread via indirect contact with contaminated surfaces and aerosolized droplets produced from coughing or sneezing.

"...wet and bigger droplets from a heavily infected individual, who has respiratory symptoms caused by other conditions or who vomits violently, could transmit the virus -- over a short distance -- to another nearby person," says a W.H.O. bulletin released this week. [1] "This could happen when virus-laden heavy droplets are directly propelled, by coughing or sneezing..."

That same bulletin also says, "The Ebola virus can also be transmitted indirectly, by contact with previously contaminated surfaces and objects."

In other words, the WHO just confirmed what the CDC says is impossible -- that Ebola can be acquired by touching a contaminated surface.

CDC remains in total denial, spreading dangerous disinformation about Ebola transmission vectors

This information published by the WHO directly contradicts the ridiculous claims of the CDC which continues to insist Ebola cannot spread through "indirect" means.

According to the CDC, Ebola can only spread via "direct contact," but the CDC is basing this assumption on the behavior of the Ebola outbreak from 1976 -- nearly four decades ago.

The CDC, in fact, continues to push five deadly assumptions about Ebola, endangering the lives of Americans in the process by failing to communicate accurate safety information to health professionals and the public.

Because of the CDC's lackadaisical attitude about Ebola transmission, the Dallas Ebola outbreak may have been made far worse by people walking in and out of the Ebola-contaminated Duncan apartment while wearing no protective gear whatsoever.

Because the CDC sets the standards for dealing with infectious disease in the United States, when the CDC claims Ebola can only spread via "direct contact," that causes emergency responders, Red Cross volunteers and even family members to conclude, "Then we don't even need to wear latex gloves as long as we're not touching the patient!"

Not "airborne" but can spread through the air

Both the CDC and the WHO continue to aggressively insist that Ebola is not an "airborne" disease. "Ebola virus disease is not an airborne infection," says the WHO bulletin. But that same bulletin describes the ability of Ebola to spread through the air via aerosolized droplets.

The medical definition of "airborne," it turns out, is a specific, narrow definition that defies the common understanding of the term. To most people, "airborne" means it can spread through the air, and Ebola most certainly can spread through the air when it is attached to aerosolized particles of spit, saliva, mucus, blood or other body fluids.

The CDC has now admitted there is a slight possibility of Ebola mutating to become "airborne" but says that chance is very small. [2] However, all honest virologists agree that the longer Ebola remains in circulation in West Africa, replicating among human hosts, the more chances it has to mutate into an airborne strain.

But the virus doesn't need to mutate to continue to spread. It has already proven quite capable of spreading via indirect contact in a way that all the governments of the world have been utterly unable to stop. Despite the best efforts of the CDC and WHO, Ebola continues to replicate out of control across West African nations. Even in the United States, the Dallas "patient zero" incident has reportedly caused 100 people to be monitored for possible Ebola infections.

This is why government claims that "we have this under control" are just as much hogwash as the claim that Ebola can only spread via "direct contact."

But that seems to be the default response of government to all legitimate threats: first, deny realityand misinform the public. Keep people in the dark and maybe the whole thing can be swept under the rug... at least until the mid-term elections.
 

Pink Slips For 90,000 Military Veterans; Replaced by Unscreened Illegal Aliens

On September 25, 2014 the Obama administration announced it would, once again, act unilaterally to provide Illegal alien “DREAMERS” with the opportunity to join the U.S. Armed Forces and be rewarded with an expedited pathway to United States citizenship.  While US Military at the same time, personnel serving in Combat in Afghanistan began receiving pink slips.  The Obama administration is planning to discharge 90,000 American citizens who are members of the US Armed Forces, many of whom are fully trained Combat Veterans, and speak, read, and comprehend fluent English.  Obama is intent on replacing hose American citizens in the US Armed Forces with Illegal aliens, many of whom can’t properly speak, read, and comprehend English.  Please review the below listed article by William Hamilton, J.D., and Ph.D.

Obama is planning on replacing loyal American Combat Veterans, who need their paying billets, with Illegal aliens at a time when 40 million Americans are unemployed, on food stamps, and would gladly join the US Armed Forces to obtain a paying jobs.  This program of replacing US Citizens in the US Armed Forces with Foreign Nationals, who can’t properly speak, read, or properly comprehend English.  That latest Obama initiative is extremely dangerous to the National Security, of the Republic, and is being supported by leftist and Marxist elected members of Congress.  

 

Consider the fact that under the provisions of Title 18 U.S. Code § 922 - Unlawful Acts (Firearms) it is a felony for an Illegal alien to possess a firearm.

While the Obama administration has been adamant about making it more difficult for United States Citizens to possess firearms, they are initiating a policy in violation of Federal Law, to clear the way to arm Illegal aliens.  Those Illegal aliens have been granted temporary lawful status without so much as a face-to-face interview, let alone a field investigation, yet they are being authorized to possess firearms in violation of another of the many federal law Obama illegally continues to violates, he will be providing those Illegal aliens but with some of the best firearms training in the world.  Illegal aliens are not the sons and daughters of American Citizens, we believe the sons and daughters of American citizens would not fire on their fellow American citizens if ordered to do so, but the Obama administration knows foreign nationals would fire on American citizens if ordered to do so.  

 

The Illegal aliens will be recruited to join he US Armed Forces from the Obama administration’s ill-conceived Deferred Action-Childhood Arrival Program (DACA) that has already provided hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens, up to age 31, with temporary lawful status and has provided them with identity documents, without so much as a face-to- face interview by ICE or Immigration officials.  None of them have been screened to determine if some of them might be Islamic Terrorists posing as Mexican nationals or fugitive criminals who have avoided criminal prosecution in the United States.  The Obama administration knows there are no resources to conduct field investigations on hundreds of thousands of DACA Illegal aliens, being given blank temporary lawful status, in order to check their applications, to uncover fraud, or to determine if they have criminal records. 

 

On October 28, 2013, Californians for Population Stabilization (CAPS) posted a commentary about the dangers posed by the current failures of the Immigration System’s ability to determine if Islamic Terrorists and criminals who have been designated in the DACA Program, to determine if they pose a serious threat to National Security, to threaten public safety, and to determine if they can game the system. 

 

The Obama administration will direct the US Armed Forces to recruit Illegal aliens, many of whom cannot speak, read, or comprehend English,  from the those in the DACA program, in order to replace the 90,000 well trained American citizen Combat Veterans, who speak, read and comprehend English (many of whom are being given pink slips to be discharged early while actively engaged in combat in Afghanistan).   Dumping thousands of the files of those Illegal aliens in the DACA Program, who are being recruited into the US Armed Forces, on to the desks of Immigration Officers, who already cannot handle their daily workload, would only serve to exacerbate the required careful review of the files of those Illegal aliens---they just won’t be properly reviewed and will result in an extremely dangerous National Security issue.  The primary function for the occupant of the Oval Office is to protect the National Security of the nation and the American citizens.  

 

Obama and his allies in Congress are posing a very serious National Security threat to the Republic, to the US Armed Forces, and to the safety of all American citizens in the Republic.  We encourage every person who receives this E-mail to support members of Congress who oppose Obama’s program to discharge US citizens in the US Armed Forces who are trained Combat Veterans, in order to replace them with Illegal aliens whose loyalty is with Mexico not to the Republic.  The 31 endorsed Combat Veterans For Congress listed in the attachment will oppose Obama’s very dangerous threat to our National Security.


  
"Central View," by William Hamilton, J.D., Ph.D.

National Defense: Fire U.S. citizens, replace with illegals.

The Eisenhower Administration relied primarily on the nuclear weapons of our Navy and Air Force to deter Soviet and Red Chinese aggression. Consequently, many U.S. Army units were hollow shells. But President Kennedy's more aggressive foreign policy called for more combat troops and, in particular, for more Special Forces. In Augsburg, West Germany, our battalion received several hundred "legal-immigrant," Spanish-speaking recruits who agreed to serve on active duty in exchange for an accelerated path to U.S. citizenship.

While we welcomed the additional warm bodies to fill our ranks, having to teach them English and how to be soldiers was an enormous burden on our officers and NCOs. We scattered the Spanish speakers throughout our company, giving them the best chance to learn English as rapidly as possible. Other companies kept them segregated into their own platoons. Those recruits learned little English. But some of our "total-immersion" recruits learned the skills of the infantry soldier so well that they even earned the coveted Expert Infantry Badge (EIB).

But now, the Obama Administration plans to pour "illegal" immigrants into an Army that is already issuing pink slips to over 90,000 active-duty soldiers who are U.S. citizens and dumping our volunteer soldiers onto a dismal civilian job market. Question: Why would you fire 90,000 volunteer soldiers who are already U.S. Citizens and who have already learned their military job skills and replace them with illegal immigrants with limited or no English and no previous military training? We report. You decide. 

But wait! There's more: Under the Obama Plan, the "illegal" immigrant relatives of the "illegal" immigrant recruits cannot be deported while their "illegal" immigrant soldier or sailor or Marine is serving on active duty. Also the path of the "illegal" relatives to U.S. citizenship is accelerated the same as the "illegal" immigrant soldier or sailor, or Marine. Again, we report. You decide. 

Our military leadership, to include the current commander-in-chief, is dysfunctional enough already. If you read "Predator: The Secret Origins of the Drone Revolution," by Richard Whittle, you see that inter-service rivalry, the egos of certain senior officers, and in-fighting between the White House, the Pentagon, and the CIA almost killed our most valuable drone asset before it was even born. Under President Bush, on the first night of our attacks against the Taliban, Mullah Omar, the head of the Taliban, was spotted by a Predator drone but, because of twisted lines of authority, he was allowed to escape unharmed. 

If you read "American Spartan: The Promise, the Mission, and the Betrayal of Special Forces Major Jim Gant,"by Ann Scott Tyson, you learn that Jim Gant's idea of winning the war in Afghanistan "One Tribe at a Time" was sabotaged by other officers putting careerism before the mission of getting the Afghan tribes on our side. Wonder what the Taliban thought when President Obama set the date for our withdrawal from Candidate Obama's "good" war? You decide, in November.

President Obama is asking Congress to provide $500 million to the Syrian rebels. When asked by Congress to name the rebel leader to receipt for the $500 million, Secretary of Defense Hagel appeared clueless. That $500 million could keep a lot of loyal GIs from getting pink slips.

National Suicide by Political Correctness

Please read the below listed article by Col Lawrence Sellin, Ph. D, concerning the history of the progressive political correct propaganda programs first developed by the Communist Party and promoted by progressives in the US since the early 50s.  Over the last 6 years the progressive movement has been implemented by the Obama administration by integrating progressive and politically correct policy in all Government Bureaus with the help of 45 czars appointed by Obama who were never confirmed by the US Senate.  The progressive and political correctness indoctrination has been force fed to the captive US Armed Forces negatively affecting Combat Effectiveness, unit cohesiveness, and moral.  While this has been on going, the left of center liberal media establishment has been promulgating progressive political correctness in their media, in order to indoctrinate the American people.  At the same time, the Obama appointees at the Department of Education have promoted Obama’s progressiveness and political correctness in the new anti-American Common Core teaching curriculum for secondary and college educational courses, in keeping with the progressive indoctrination of unsuspecting students by leftists college professors that has been going on since the early 60’s. 

Unsuspecting students at all levels of education are being indoctrinated with this new progressive political correct Common Core agenda approved by the Obama administration which has eliminated civics courses, information about the Founding Fathers, study of the Bill of Rights, analysis on the US Constitution, positive history about how the US abolished slavery, the impressive history about how the US Armed Forces freed millions of people in foreign lands from oppressive dictators and returned the land to the people in those countries, how the free enterprise created the most effective economic engine in the history of mankind, and cover up the Socialism has never worked in any country where it has been tried. 

Now progressives in the Obama administration appointed to the Center for Disease Control are doing nothing to keep American citizens safe from the Ebola epidemic, and are delaying the required precautionary steps necessary to prevent the spread of the Ebola infectious disease from spreading throughout the Republic, because it would not be politically correct.  Obama administration officials have been insinuating that it would be racist to restrict the entry of travelers with passports from countries in West Africa where the Ebola epidemics are rampant.  However, in order to protect their citizens from an Ebola epidemic, the intelligent leaders of African and European countries are restricting flights from West Africa from entering their countries.  The primary function of the leader of any country is to protect the lives of their citizens.

US Immigrations and Customs Officials are not properly screening arriving international passengers insuring where they have traveled, asking the passenger if they have a fever, screening passengers to see if they are sick, and are not thermo-scanning passenger’s temperatures.  Yet, 
US Immigration and Custom Officials are quarantining dogs and cats entering the US, and demanding to examine the medical records of those animals.  Even though the citizens of West African countries have been exposed to a serious Ebola epidemic---and despite repeated calls for restricting flights from West Africa to the United States as African and European countries have restricted those flights from arriving in their countries, the Obama administration refuses to restrict flights from West Africa from entering the US----------after all it would be racist and politically incorrect.  

 A postscript: 

      When the Obama administration asked Israel to send members of its Armed Forces to provide medical assistance to Ebola infected countries in West Africa, their Defense Minister, Moshe Ya’alon, said  “The hell I’ll expose my troops to Ebola.”  It kind of makes you feel warm inside to know that Obama is exposing 3000 US military personnel to Ebola where the infectious disease is rampant in the countries in West Africa where they are being sent---no other member of the 192 United Nations states is exposing their sons and daughters to that killer disease.  

     However, Obama won’t deploy one member of the US Armed Forces to seal the wide open southern border, in order to prevent drug smugglers, human smugglers, Islamic terrorists, 200,000 illegal youth from central America, and Ebola infected Illegal Immigrants from entering the United States.  The 31 endorsed Combat Veterans For Congress will fight to close the wide open southern borders and push to restore US History in educational institutions, vote for them in your Absentee Ballot or at the polls.

 

"Obama is the architect of American decline, and progressivism is the ideology of American suicide. Decline is a choice, but so is liberty. Let us resolve as Americans to make liberty our choice".

Family Security Matters

National suicide by political correctness

by LAWRENCE SELLIN, PHD October 1, 2014

Barack Obama said "ISIL is not Islamic. No religion condones the killing of innocents."

That definition includes: al- Qa'ida, Abu Sayyaf, Gama'a al-Islamiyya, Hamas, Hizballah, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Jaish-e-Mohammed, Lashkar-e Tayyiba, Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, Asbat al-Ansar, al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb, Jemaah Islamiya, Ansar al-Islam, Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, al-Shabaab, al-Qa'ida in the Arabian Peninsula, Boko Haram, al-Nusrah Front, Ansar al-Shari'a in Benghazi, Ansar al-Shari'a in Darnah, Ansar al-Shari'a in Tunisia - Well, you get the idea.

As noted recently by Diana West, Americans continue to be perplexed as to how the Obama Administration and the media keep repeating the politically correct propaganda that Islam has nothing to do with jihad. Such widespread, politics- and mass-media-driven brainwashing is not new.

Just as today's politicians, journalists and academics seek to separate Islam from its radical impact; brutal conquest, forced conversion, sex slavery and beheadings. Past opinion-makers worked equally hard to separate communism from its own brand inhuman impact; brutal conquest, forced collectivization, concentration camps and mass murder.

Few Americans realize that political correctness, a policy implicitly promoted by Democrats and established as the de facto totalitarian legal system on American universities, was designed by communists in the 1930s to undermine western civilization and democracy while disguising the nature of the threat.

After the successful 1917 communist revolution in Russia, it was widely believed that a proletarian revolt would sweep across Europe and, ultimately, North America. It did not. The only two attempts at a workers' government in Munich and Budapest lasted only months.

As a result the Communist International began to investigate other ways to create the state of societal hopelessness and alienation necessary as a prerequisite for socialist revolution.

The single, most important organizational component of this conspiracy was a Communist think tank called the Institute for Social Research, popularly known as the Frankfurt School. The task of the Frankfurt School was first, to undermine the Judeo-Christian foundation of Western civilization that emphasized the uniqueness and sacredness of the individual and, second, to determine new cultural forms which would increase the disaffection of the population.

Political Correctness is cultural Marxism translated from economic into cultural terms. Just as in classical economic Marxism, certain groups, i.e. workers and peasants, are a priori good, and other groups, i.e., the bourgeoisie and capital owners, are evil. In the cultural Marxism of Political Correctness certain groups are good, such as feminist women, blacks, ethnic minorities and those who define themselves according to sexual orientation. These groups are deemed to be "victims," and therefore unquestionably good. Similarly, white males and, by extension Western civilization, are determined to be automatically evil, thereby becoming the equivalent of the bourgeoisie in economic Marxism.

Perhaps the most important, if least-known, of the Frankfurt School's successes was the shaping of the electronic media of radio and television into the powerful instruments of social control which they represent today.

With the collapse of the Soviet Union, American universities now represent the largest concentration of Marxist dogma and political correctness in the world. This is not the academy of a republic, but Hitler's Gestapo and Stalin's NKVD rooting out deviationists in the guise of racial, ethnic, gender and cultural sensitivity.

The policies of the Obama Administration reflect what David Horowitz described as an unholy alliance between leftists and radical Islam. They have been brought together by the traits they share - their hatred of Western civilization and their belief that the United States is the embodiment of evil on earth. While Islamic radicals seek to purge the world of heresies and of the infidels who practice them, leftist radicals seek to purge society's collective "soul" of the vices allegedly spawned by capitalism -- those being racism, sexism, imperialism, and greed.

Given the existential threat posed by such ideologies, political correctness can no longer be considered merely a peculiarity of cowardly politicians, a biased media or tenured radicals, but a dangerous subversive element of an anti-American and anti-Western strategy.

But frankly, Mr. Obama, I don't care if ISIL is "Islamic" or not. Wanting us all dead is a sufficient reason to take the war directly and aggressively to them.

Dinesh D'Souza's Speech to the Combat Veterans For Congress

The below listed speech is the most important speech, in support of the Republic, that I have listened to, since I listened to many important speeches by President Ronald Reagan over a 14 year period.  I believe I can speak with a degree of authority and confidence, because of my association with President Ronald Reagan and the Reagan administration over that 14 year period.  The below listed keynote speech was given by Dinesh D’Souza, author and producer of the most successful documentary film in history, “America”; the address was given on September 6, 2014 at the Town and Country Hotel in San Diego, California during a Gala Event to introduce the Combat Veterans For Congress to the national press corps.

I was very fortunate to work with and for President Reagan, on and off, for a 14 years period.  I began my association with former California Governor Ronald Reagan during his campaign for the Republican nomination for President, when he was running against President Gerald Ford.  That campaign took us to the Republican Convention in Kansas City, where Gov Reagan lost what was until then, a very close nomination race, but because of the power of incumbent who was able to offer delegates from key states with certain benefits, Gov Reagan lost.  I continued to work with President Reagan during his two terms and for 2 years after he left office; when his staff in Century City would ask me if I would volunteer to do advances for the former President, when he was scheduled to make speeches to various audiences. 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y0XUBdC89Mk&feature=youtu.be

I encourage you to pass this very important video on to everyone in your address book who cares about the survival of the Republic envisioned and created by our Founding Fathers.  That Republic that we knew and raised in our youth is under relentless attack by the occupant of the Oval Office, and is intent on changing it to a Socialist State. The endorsed Combat Veterans For Congress, listed in the attachment who are running in 2014, will fight to protect our Judeo-Christian Heritage, the “Freedoms” outlined in The Bill of Rights, and will fight to protect and defend the US Constitution-------the US Constitution they raised their right hand and swore to protect and defend, and did so on foreign fields of combat, while repeatedly putting their lives on the line.
 

U.S. Nuclear Weapons Policy Puts The Nation At Great Risk

While China and Russia are upgrading their nuclear weapons inventory and are going forward with advance nuclear weapons research, and while Iran is developing nuclear weapons, the Executive Branch of government has been degrading its once superior and advanced nuclear weapons technology capability.  The once most powerful US nuclear weapons research facility in the world is rapidly falling behind Russia and China.  Please read the below listed article by VADM Robert R. Monroe, USN (Ret).

Sandia Laboratory scientists have ceased doing exploratory and research work to avoid technology surprise by other nuclear powers, and work on new smaller and more effective design nuclear weapons has ceased all together. The US‘s unilateral cessation of safe underground testing has prevented scientist from testing our aging nuclear weapons, and allowing the United States with the ability to replace them with modern smaller, more effective, and safer weapons---it leave the Republic at the mercy of the Chinese and the Russians who have no such limitations and are progressing rapidly.   

“Peace thru Strength”, a policy that the endorsed Combat Veterans For Congress support, could be achieved by having a modern and more effective nuclear weapons inventory; that policy has been shouted down by leftist and Socialist supporters of the Obama administration in the US Congress.  The endorsed Combat Veterans For Congress listed in the attachment who are running for election in 2014 will fight to reverse the current U S Nuclear Weapons policy that is putting the nation at great risk---please give them your support.

U.S.' Nuclear Weapons Policy Puts Country At Great Risk 

By ROBERT R. MONROE

At the dawn of the nuclear era, when America created its nuclear weapons laboratories (Los Alamos, Livermore and Sandia), one of their primary missions was to avoid technological surprise.

The labs were charged to conduct advanced nuclear weapons research, development and testing of all types so that no adversary could ever take us unawares by producing some new and dangerous types of nuclear weapons.

The labs performed this mission superbly throughout World War II and the five decades of the Cold War. For over half a century our nuclear weapons and related advanced technological capabilities were supreme in the world.

But since 1992, the U.S. government — executive branch and Congress — has actively prevented the labs from doing work of this type. For 23 years Democrats and Republicans, using laws, regulations and denials of funding, progressively restricted the labs from taking any of these needed actions.

Lab scientists have not been able to even think about new weapons, exploratory work has ceased to exist and the high-priority mission of avoiding technological surprise has been closed down.

These grave mistakes resulted from the simplistic belief that they would help prevent nuclear proliferation. Wiser voices, making the obvious point that true national security — and effective prevention of nuclear proliferation — lay in nuclear weapons strength, were shouted down.

This two-decade rampage has resulted in a staggering list of national disabilities:

• Most damaging is President Bush's unilateral 1992 moratorium on underground nuclear testing. It bars the labs from essential testing of our overage nuclear stockpile, prevents development of relevant replacement weapons, denies our scientists use of the scientific method (the basis of all advancement) and leaves us at the mercy of Russia, China and other adversaries.

• From 1993-2003 Congress explicitly made it illegal to carry out any research or development on low-yield nuclear weapons, which are vital to deter today's grave new nuclear threats. This established the wrong mindset in a generation of lab scientists which still exists.

• In 1989 the executive branch shut down the nation's only facility to produce plutonium pits — the hearts of nuclear weapons — making us the only nuclear weapons state in the world unable to produce nuclear arms. Since then, executive branch fumbling and congressional denials have combined to prevent replacement of this absolutely essential production facility. If a decision were made today, it would still be 10 to 15 years before pit production could start.

• In 1996 President Clinton signed the extremely damaging Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty, which denies nuclear weapons testing for all time. The Senate emphatically rejected ratification in 1999, but several adverse effects of the signing remain and President Obama is determined to get it ratified. The CTBT has an overpoweringly adverse effect on the labs.

• In 2003 the executive branch belatedly proposed three important new nuclear weapons programs. The Advanced Concepts Initiative would have enabled the labs to commence research and development on advanced nukes. The Robust Nuclear Earth Penetrator program would have met the mushrooming threat of hard, deeply buried targets. The Enhanced Test Readiness program would have enabled the president, in a national emergency, to conduct an underground test within one to two years, rather than the current three to five.

Congress delayed, then killed, all three programs.

• In 2005 the Reliable Replacement Warhead program was proposed. Because it had no new military capabilities, it gained fragile bipartisan support. However, Congress soon backwatered on it, and Obama killed it in 2009 as not befitting his "world without nuclear weapons" vision.

• The 2010 Nuclear Posture Review, which established the overall nuclear policy of the current administration, provided the blueprint for U.S. nuclear weakness, a stark reversal from the role of U.S. nuclear weapons strength that had been established and maintained by 12 Presidents (six Democrats, six Republicans) throughout the prior seven decades.

• The urgently needed modernization program for the labs and America's nuclear weapons infrastructure, formally agreed to by Obama in return for Senate approval of New START treaty ratification in 2010, has been progressively dismantled by both branches ever since. 

These eight actions — and many others — by our national leadership have emasculated the labs' ability to protect us from technological surprise in nuclear weapons.

Meanwhile, for two decades Russia has been following exactly the opposite course. Its nuclear weapons labs have focused on low-yield weapons research, design, testing and production. It's pursued advanced concepts, fifth-generation weapons and greater use of fusion and less of fission (possibly achieving pure fusion).

Such weapons might well emit only neutrons and gamma rays, and their tactics of use would be ones we've never seen. Furthermore, Russia's new strategy calls for early use of nuclear weapons in all conflicts, large and small.

America's current nuclear weapons course is one of grave risk. Our policy documents emphasize that "nuclear stability" must be our goal, yet the technological surprise we are encouraging by our actions is the antithesis of stability. We must return to a policy of nuclear strength.

U.S. OFFICIALS IN MELTDOWN ON OBAMA'S EBOLA MISSION

In the Middle East, for the past 3 years, Obama has avoided exercising traditional US leadership in the world community to mobilize support for the prevention of the continued slaughter of Christians (by his inaction, by taking no action, he has signaled ISIL that it is safe to continue slaughtering Christians.  Obama continues to state almost daily, that there will be no boots on the ground in the Middle East; ISI has become emboldened by his telling them what he will not do.

Instead of inserting boots on the ground with small Special Operations units in the Levant of what used to be Iraq, to coordinate command & control, US air operations & strikes, and gathering of actionable intelligence, and instead of putting 3000 military boots on the ground along the southern border to stem the massive influx of Illegal Immigrants, drug smugglers, human smugglers, and terrorist flooding across the southern border, Obama is executing a very dangerous plan to deploy 3000 US military personnel to the Ebola infected jungles of Liberia.  Obama has placed the 3000 military personnel under the command of the State Department not the Defense Department..  

  

Helping contain Ebola is not the duty for the US Armed Forces to perform, the US Military is not an organization that contain contagious and infectious diseases that have no cure.  It is something the UN Health Organization together with the National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Disease at the Center for Disease Control and Prevention should be doing, it is not a military mission the military was properly trained to execute.  US Armed Forces personnel should be employed in combat operations; this is just another abuse of US Military personnel by Obama.  (please read the below listed article). 

 

The Obama administration representatives could not answer some very basic questions: was there adequate protective and preventive medical equipment and health training procedures that they would provide to the 3000 military personnel, to make sure military personnel would not get infected with Ebola.  The Obama administration had no answers to those question posed by the press. In recent days, health officials around the world have become alarmed by the prospect that the Ebola virus could mutate and go airborne, then the spread of infection would be virtually be impossible to contain. 

 

Obama’s order to deploy 3000 boots on the ground in West Africa to help contain Ebola is risking infecting the nation with a  killer plague that has no medical cure.  This latest unsound and flawed initiative by the occupant of the Oval Office, hazarding the lives of 3000 US military personnel with the possibility of being infected with Ebola, further displays a lack of cautious and intelligent leadership.    The Speaker of the House endorsed Obama’s perilous policy, that risks the security of the nation and hazards the lives of children and the elderly in America.

 

Obama’s initiatives will be praised and celebrated by the left of center liberal media establishment.   Obama’s very dangerous decision will be hazarding the entire nation, especially when the 3000 military personnel return---they should all be quarantined, off shore, for at least 2 months before they are allowed to set foot back on CONUS.  This risky initiative, will result in more of the American people not trusting the judgment of the President or the Speaker of the House, since they are both supporting a policy, that is endangering the safety and security of the American people.   

OUTBREAK!

U.S. OFFICIALS IN MELTDOWN ON OBAMA'S EBOLA MISSION

Can't answer questions posed at congressional hearing on crisis

Published: 12 hours ago

Jerome R. Corsi, a Harvard Ph.D., is a WND senior staff reporter. He has authored many books, including No. 1 N.Y. Times best-sellers "The Obama Nation" and "Unfit for Command." Corsi's latest book is "Who Really Killed Kennedy?"

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. – At a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing Wednesday on Ebola, government health workers were unable to answer specific questions posed by Republicans skeptical of President Obama’s decision to deploy 3,000 U.S. troops to Liberia to combat the disease.

None of the government health witnesses testifying were able to answer basic questions, including how many physicians and nurses would be among the 3,000 troops allocated or what type of protective equipment and training would be employed to prevent infection.

The witnesses explained the State Department was in charge of the military mission, not the Pentagon.

“Who do we call when there is a problem with the troops in Liberia?” asked Rep. Michael Burgess, R-Texas, a physician and a guest on the committee.

“You call USAID,” replied Nancy Lindborg, assistant administrator for the U.S. Agency for International Development, USAID.

She explained the situation in Liberia is a medical emergency, and USAID is directing the Obama administration’s response in West Africa.

USAID reports to the State Department, not to the Department of Defense.

As WND reported, retired Lt. Gen. William G. Boykin has charged that sending American troops to combat Ebola in Liberia is “an absolute misuse of the U.S. military.”

Rep. Christopher Smith, R-N.J., began the questioning by asking the government health witnesses whether or not the Obama administration has allocated sufficient funding to support the military mission in Liberia. Smith also asked what steps the administration plans to take to protect the health of the troops deployed there.

Unable to directly answer Smith’s questions, Lindborg stressed the U.S. wants to provide “command and control” in Liberia, coordinating international efforts to provide physicians and nurses.

Lindborg promised to deliver after the hearing a breakdown of the roles the 3,000 U.S. troops would play.

She explained the goal of the military mission is to establish a Joint Force Command headquartered in Liberia to serve as a regional command for U.S. military activities in the region. The plan is also to establish an Ebola “training boot camp” to train up to 500 local health care workers weekly and to set up a 25-bed hospital in Liberia open to all health care aid workers in West Africa who contract the disease.

“When will the 3,000 military be in theater?” Smith asked. “Can you also reassure the American people that the military deployed to Liberia will have adequate protective medical equipment and training to make sure our troops do not get infected with Ebola while in the region”

Lindborg was unable to provide Smith precise timelines for the arrival of U.S. troops nor was she able to detail the protective medical equipment and training the troops will be provided prior to arrival.

Coming to Limburg’s defense, Dr. Beth Bell, director of the National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Disease at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, explained the CDC has prepared material regarding what medical personnel dispatched to West Africa to combat Ebola need to know before they arrive in the disease hot zone.

In her prepared opening statement, Bell appeared to minimize the risk presented by the current outbreak, stressing Ebola is “not a significant health threat to the United States.”

She argued Ebola is not easily transmitted and does not spread from people who are not ill She also noted cultural norms that contribute to the spread of the disease in Africa, such as burial customs, are not a factor in the U.S.

“There is a window of opportunity to tamp down the spread of this disease, but that window is closing,” Bell testified. “The best way to prevent the Ebola virus from reaching the United States is to contain the virus outbreak in West Africa now.”

She told the committee that the $600 million the United Nations believes will be needed to get supplies to West African countries to get the virus under control is “an underestimate.”

Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, explained the NAAID has begun active human testing of various alternative therapies and experimental drugs to combat Ebola. The effort includes working with Mapp Biopharmaceutical, Inc. to develop MB-003, a combination of three antibodies that has successfully prevented Ebola from developing in monkeys when administered as late as 48 hours after exposure.

In combination with the pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline, NIAID is testing an experimental vaccine that uses a chimpanzee virus similar to the common cold virus, Chimp Adenovirus 3 (Cad3), as a carrier, or vector, to introduce the Ebola virus genes into the body, with the goal of stimulating an immune response.

Fauci, under questioning from the committee, argued that while it is possible the Ebola virus could mutate in Liberia to become airborne, it is unlikely.

“The American public should not lose sleep over the possibility Ebola will go airborne,” he said. “But we have to contain the virus right now, because the more the virus escalating, infecting additional people, the greater the chance the virus will mutate.”

The Macro Plan to Crush the Islamic State in the Levant (ISIL)--Hon Bud McFarlane

All Midshipmen and Cadets, while matriculating at one of the US Service Academies, are taught to fight to “Win” in academics, on the athletic field, and ultimately in combat---they learn that there is no substitute for victory!!

Unfortunately, the resident in the Oval Office’s plan to defeat the Islamic State in the Levant (ISIL), is not a serious plan; there is no consistency, no clarity, and no obvious will to “Win”  Allies have observed that Obama is calling the world to ride to an uncertain trumpet when he is not committed to it.  The failure to execute an effective air campaign (the 150 air strikes over many weeks should have occurred on the first day of air campaign and everyday thereafter).  The repeated statements by Obama that there will be no boots on the ground, and failure of the air campaign to strike supply lines, long convoys of armed terrorists, and weapons depots in Syria has signaled ISIL that the plan is not a serious plan. 

 

The allies have watched over the last 6 years as Obama walked away from the victory in Iraq & refused to leave a residual US military force in Iraq overriding his own generals, Obama walked away from air strikes in Syria 3 years ago when Assad crossed the red line, he took out a friendly leader in Libya then walking away from a destabilized Libya that resulted in Al Q’ieda taking over Libya, walked away from the friendly Egyptian Army Junta after it removed the Moslem Brotherhood Mosci who was killing Christians, and Obama has sent a signal that he will walk away from Afghanistan leaving it to the Taliban and Al Q’ieda---Middle East & NATO allies are not interested in joining a consortium with a quitter who can’t be trusted to “Win” anything.

 

US air power, the Kurdish Forces, the Iraqi Army (with an anti-Sunni Government), and the free Syrian Army cannot possibly defeat the 30,000 man ISIL army which is projected to soon grow to 60,000 men (ISIL is selling $3 million in black market oil to Turkey every day to fund its military operation).  Air strikes will not be sufficient, when there is no effective command and control organization on the ground, there is no effective reconnaissance operation on the ground, when the US does not have the ability to capture combatants in order to develop actionable intelligence.  The US is planning to spend one year to train 5000 Free Syrians Army personnel, while ISIL grows from 30,000 to 60,000 in the same year.   

 

After 9/11 the US inserted small Special Operation Units and CIA Paramilitary forces on the ground in Afghanistan to coordinate with the Northern Alliance, in order to drive the Taliban, Al Q’ieda, and Osama Bin Laden out of Afghanistan  The failure of Obama to commit small Special Operations and CIA Paramilitary forces units on the ground in Iraq is dooming Obama’s plan to failure---Obama keeps telling ISIL that there will be no boots on the ground-----what other occupant of the Oval Officer in 238 years has ever told the enemy what the US will not do?.   

 

The Obama administration continues to send confusing messages to reluctant US allies who are being asked to join a coalition to defeat ISIL, to the American people who are being asked to support Obama’s inept plan to defeat ISIL (68% of the American people believe Obama’s plan to “Win” is folly), and to Obama’s leftist allies in the Democratic Party to prevent them from being alarmed before the November election (the leftists, Socialists, and Marxists in the Democratic party do not want Obama to carry out a comprehensive “War Plan” to defeat ISIL they want to take funds away from the US military and use those funds to expand the bloated and inept welfare state rift with fraud).  

 

Obama doesn’t have the strength of purpose to do what Presidents Lincoln, Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, and Reagan did to protect the homeland.  Obama’s political policies are allowing ISIL terrorists to flood across the wide open southern border and threaten American citizens, while he hollows out the US Armed Forces, and creates a $1 trillion annual US deficient leading the nation to the brink of bankruptcy.  .   

 

For the last 6 years, the Obama administration used drones to kill Al Q’ idea leaders who were immediately replaced by the next Al Q’ieda terrorist in line. They killed one leader after another who had a great deal of valuable intelligence, instead of employing small Special Operations units to capture the leaders, interrogate them, and develop the requisite intelligence to oppose the spread of Al Q’ieda worldwide.  The net result of the killer drone policy that the Obama administration bragged about, has been that ISIL metastasized and Islamic terrorism spread throughout the world like cancer---while the Obama administration was blinded because they lacked actionable intelligence from captured Islamic terrorists.   

 

Obama didn’t want to capture, interrogate, and jail terrorists in Gitmo, all he wanted to do was to kill terrorists in the field so he could close the Gitmo operation.  The Gitmo interrogations developed an incredible amount of actionable intelligence, including providing the intelligence that led to the location of Bin Laden’s messenger, and that messenger ultimately led to US forces to the location of Osama Bin Laden’s lair in Pakistan, where SEAL Team SIX took out Bin Laden.    

 

There is no Obama administration plan to pull out all the stops to “Crush” ISIL.  We encourage you to read the below listed macro approach to Crush ISIL written by the former National Security Advisor in the Reagan Administration, the Hon Robert C. McFarlane, USNA '59, Col-USMC (Ret); he is calling for the effective employment of diplomacy, applying economic pressure, training  & support of Special Operation Forces, and not to continue following the past policy of  “leading from behind”, but to exercise traditional effective US leadership to “Win”.  Robert  “Bud” McFarlane is the Senior Advisor for the Foundation for Defense of Democracies and supports the endorsed Combat Veterans For Congress.

McFARLANE: A plan for crushing the Islamic State

Toothless diplomacy is no longer an option

 

By Robert McFarlane - - Wednesday, September 3, 2014

 

It is astonishing that nearly six years into the tenure of any administration the commander-in-chief would acknowledge publicly that he has no strategy for addressing an evident, serious threat to American interests.

 

Last week, marauders from the so-called Islamic State overran Tabqa air base in Syria, where MANPADS, or man-portable air-defense systems, are stored. These are the weapons that can bring down commercial aircraft. Considering the pledge of this group’s leader to take the war to the United States, they now have the means to do so whether targeting the takeoff of a U.S. commercial airliner from Dubai, or in a few weeks after penetrating the Mexican border, from Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport in Dallas.

 

Historically, every new administration spends the first year of its tenure enunciating goals — essentially, to keep the peace and establish a climate at home and abroad in which American interests can be advanced — and then developing strategies for achieving them in specific regions of the world. The process begins with the president stating his view of what our regional interests are, inviting the intelligence community and the Cabinet to identify how those interests are threatened, and then tasking these principals and staff to develop a range of integrated political, economic and military measures for defending and advancing American interests throughout the world. By the end of the first year, the president has evaluated the options submitted to him and has made decisions among them. He then goes about implementing them by publishing and explaining them to three constituencies — the American people, the U.S. Congress and our allies. While this process involves hard work and disciplined leadership, it’s not rocket science. Doing it well yields enormous benefits. It engenders confidence among the American people and nurtures cohesion and support among our allies. Finally, it puts adversaries on notice that we are a serious nation that has the will, the capability, a strategic plan and the resources to prevail against any challenge they might consider posing.

 

Since World War II, U.S. presidents have engaged this strategic process as a proven means for defining and announcing our interests overseas, assessing how they are threatened, and developing effective strategies designed to deter, or — if deterrence fails — to prevail in any conflict well in advance of any such conflict. In the Reagan administration, I had the privilege of managing that process, and in the ensuing years, it proved invaluable not only in identifying — and pre-empting — challenges still over the horizon, but in crisis management as well. In the remaining years of the current administration, there is still time for President Obama to lead in the resolution of the plethora of crises before us — starting with the threats posed by the Islamic State and concurrently in Ukraine, China and Iran.

 

Modern terrorism by Islamist groups has posed a “clear and present danger” to our country for more than 30 years. In Iraq, we are faced with an especially challenging form of it.  A well-financed, well-armed and well-trained barbarous force has declared its intention, inter alia, to conduct operations against the United States on its way to establishing an Islamic caliphate of global reach and jurisdiction.

http://assets.newsinc.com/newsinconebyone.png?t=1402418700

Given the plausibility of their executing such a plan, the first comment our president must make is that this movement of uncivilized savages puts us all at risk — from Irbil to London, Chicago, Tokyo and Beijing — and that there is no basis for trying to reason with brainwashed, ideological, totalitarian, genocidal criminals bent on pursuit of an imperial strategy. The second is that they must be destroyed. Mr. Obama’s statement from Estoniaon Wednesday was a good, though belated, beginning.

 

Developing a political, economic and military strategy for containing and then destroying the Islamic State is not something that will come easily for the president, given his proclivities toward engagement and toothless diplomacy. Yet in some respects, his task has been rendered less onerous.  Politicians in every civilized state — especially European states that have known this menace was coming for years — understand that if they don’t join in countering this scourge in Syria and Iraq, they will face it in their own countries before long.  This week, the president’s task is to forge consensus among his political counterparts in Western Europe to direct NATO Supreme Allied Commander Europe Gen. Philip Breedlove and the NATO military committee to work with the Joint Chiefs of Staff to develop a plan for overcoming this menace.

 

Economically, it’s time to lean hard on the Gulf Arabs to shut down their formal and informal funding of radical Islamists. The diplomacy needed to get this done ought also to be a little easier than it would have been even five years ago. Their tenure is at risk, and they are palpably conscious of it.  Separately, our work with European allies should involve closing their financial institutions to Islamist transactions.

 

The U.S. military must work with Kurdish, Kuwaiti, Egyptian, United Arab Emirates, Saudi, Jordanian and Iraqi forces to forge a strategy, first to contain and then to destroy the Islamic State’s forces. U.S. and allied tactical aviation can help limit the enemy’s mobility and provide fire support during engagements. However, the training and supervision of ground forces from the aforementioned countries in the struggle to regain lost territory must fall to experienced U.S. special operations advisory personnel — several thousand of them.

 

By their brashness and brutality, the Islamists may have provided an impetus and a window for the civilized world to come together and reverse their gains. It will take extraordinary leadership from Washington to oversee this battle and stay the course. That window may not remain open for long.

 

As soon as we have stemmed this tide — a year from now — we must turn to the agenda that we have for so long avoided — bringing the moderate Arabs, Kurds and Israel into a sustained conversation on regional security that leads toward reconciling their differences. To do so offers a revered place in history for the American president. Yet it will require a far better understanding of the nature of the challenge than has thus far been apparent, together with the courage and commitment to lead such an effort successfully.

 

Robert McFarlane served as President Reagan’s national-security adviser. He is currently a senior adviser to the Foundation for Defense of Democracies.

UN Small-Arms Treaty, Major Second Amendment Threat

The assault on Americans Citizen’s rights to own and bear arms in accordance with provisions of the Second Amendment of the US Constitution is being threatened by the Obama administration’s support for the UN Small Arms Treaty.  This UN Small-Arms Treaty threatens individual firearm ownership with an invasive registration scheme.  

The below listed Op-Ed by Admiral James A Lyons’52 USN (Ret) (former Commander of the US Pacific Fleet and the Senior US Military Representative to the United Nations) is a warning all Americans of the threat posed by Obama to void provisions of the Second Amendment by signing the UN Small-Arms Treaty, allowing the UN to control small arms in the United States.  

Obama has the support of the elected Democrat Senators to approve the UN Small Arms Treaty.  Those Democrat Senators who agree with Obama, standing for re-election in November should be defeated at the polls.   The endorsed Combat Veterans For Congress listed on the Endorsements page, running for election in 2014 (three of whom are running for the US Senate), support the rights of all Americans to acquire and bear arms in accordance with the US Constitution.

LYONS: Small-arms treaty, big Second Amendment threat

Ceding Senate constitutional authority to the U.N. would be unwise

Lost Gun Rights Illustration by Greg Groesch/The Washington Times more >

In a little-noticed action, the U.N. General Assembly on April 2, 2013, adopted by "majority vote" an Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) with the objective of regulating the international trade in conventional arms from small arms to major military equipment. The treaty's lofty objectives were to foster peace and security by limiting uncontrolled destabilizing arms transfer to areas of conflict. In particular, it was also meant to prevent countries that abuse human rights from acquiring arms.

While the record of the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty discussions makes no mention of it, the genesis for regulating the unrestrained transfer of conventional arms to conflict areas, Third World countries and human rights violators was a key policy of President Carter's administration. Shortly after his inauguration in 1977, he initialed a policy of restraint on conventional-arms transfer and linked such control to the human rights record of potential recipients, particularly in Latin America. To implement this policy, the Carter administration proposed to the Soviet Union, the world's second-leading supplier of arms, that it open negotiations to conclude such an agreement. These meetings were known as the Conventional Arms Transfer Talks.

The first region selected was Latin America, because there was less competition there than anywhere else in the world between the United States and the Soviet Union. As the director of political-military affairs, I was the Joint Chiefs of Staff representative in the U.S. delegation, which was headed by Les Gelb from the State Department. Suffice to say, after four meetings over a 12-month period and the "delusion" that a successful agreement could be achieved, the talks collapsed. The esoteric objectives may sound good in the faculty lounge, but they fail to pass muster in the real world.

The Soviets were always the reluctant suitors in this enterprise. They were not about to restrict the transfer of arms in areas that they viewed to be in their political interests. Certainly, there was not unanimity of purpose in the Carter administration. The Joint Chiefs of Staff viewed the objectives as an unnecessary infringement on our strategy and sovereignty.

For the record, the Obama administration's Conventional Arms Transfer policy issued on Jan. 16 embraces many of the objectives of the Carter administration's policy, as well as the current U.N. Arms Trade Treaty. However, it makes no mention of either one.

A number of major defects in the U.N. treaty were detailed in a letter sent to President Obama in October 2013 by 50 senators — both Republicans and Democrats. The first problem was that the treaty was adopted by majority vote in the U.N. General Assembly, not by consensus, a condition called for by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. After entry into force, the senators contend, the Arms Trade Treaty can be amended by majority vote of signatory countries, effectively negating the Senate's constitutional treaty power and handing it to foreign governments. Even the State Department concedes, the senators wrote, that the treaty "includes language that could hinder the United States from fulfilling its strategic, legal and moral commitments to provide arms to key allies such as the Republic of China (Taiwan) and the State of Israel."

Of most concern is the infringement on our constitutional rights, the senators charged. The Arms Trade Treaty "includes only a weak nonbinding reference to the lawful ownership, use of, and trade in firearms, and recognizes none of these activities, much less individual self-defense, as fundamental individual rights." When coupled with the treaty's ceding of interpretive authority to other countries, this poses a direct threat to the Second Amendment.

It should be noted that neither of Virginia's senators, Mark Warner or Tim Kaine, signed the Senate letter against a U.N. treaty that threatens Americans' right to keep and bear arms, and undermines American sovereignty.

Failing to sign the letter is not the first time Mr. Warner went AWOL on the Arms Trade Treaty. In January 2013, before Secretary of State John F. Kerry signed the treaty, the Senate passed a budget amendment sponsored by Sen. James M. Inhofe, Oklahoma Republican, to establish a deficit-neutral reserve fund for the purpose of "upholding Second Amendment rights, which shall include preventing the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty." Mr. Warner and Mr. Kaine were among the 46 voting "nay" on the amendment.

Supporters of the treaty say there's nothing to worry about, because the Second Amendment is a constitutional protection, and nothing in a treaty can undermine it. Gun rights champions strongly disagree. "The Obama administration is once again demonstrating its contempt for our fundamental, individual right to keep and bear arms," said Chris W. Cox, executive director of the National Rifle Association's Institute for Legislative Action, following Mr. Kerry's signing of the treaty. "This treaty threatens individual firearm ownership with an invasive registration scheme. The NRA will continue working with the United States Senate to oppose ratification of the ATT."

With 50 senators opposed to the Arms Trade Treaty, we can hope its prospects for Senate advice and consent are small — with or without the support of liberals such as Mr. Warner and Mr. Kaine. The Joint Chiefs of Staff also need to indicate clearly their concern, as it affect our strategy and sovereignty.

Third Major Event Introduced Combat Veterans For Congress to National Press

The third major event in five years to promote the candidacy of endorsed Combat Veterans For Congress with the National Press was held in San Diego on September 6th at the Town and Country Hotel.  Seventeen media representatives from throughout the nation attended, received Press Credentials, and represented 40+ outlets.  The media representatives and journalists made press releases, will periodically release follow on articles, and over the next two months will be airing video presentations on their TV Networks about the endorsed Combat Veterans For Congress. 

The event gained the endorsement and attendance of nationally known Patriotic Americans most of whom addressed the gathering-----Writer and Producer of “America” Dinesh D’Souza, Texas Governor Rick Perry, National Syndicated KABC Radio Talk Show Host Larry Elder, One American Network News Anchor Rick Amato, Tea Party Express National Strategist Sal Russo, FOX/CNN/CNBC Commentator Gary Berntsen, Congressman Barry Goldwater, Jr.  Congressman Kerry Bentivolio, Actress/ Singer/Producer Connie Stevens, Singer/Producer Pat Boone, the Thomas More Law Center Director of Mission Advancement Thomas Lynch,  and the endorsed Combat Veterans For Congress who were able to break away from their tightly contested races in 21 states. 

 

Patriotic Americans from Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Michigan, Montana, Florida, Illinois, Wyoming, and California traveled to San Diego to support the event, including the attendance of Wounded Warrior, returning Afghanistan Combat Veterans, Naval Flag Officer, Iwo Jima Monument West Representatives, Senior Business Executives, Attorneys, and Combat Veterans from WWII. Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm, Iraq, and Afghanistan.

 

The evening’s events and the speeches motivated the attendees to return to their home states, in order to mobilizelocal support for the most important Congressional election in 238 years, an election that will decide the course of history of the Republic.  The event did not generate the amount of funds hoped for to donate to the 32 endorsed Combat Veterans For Congress, two of which will be elected to the US Senate with proper financial support.  The below listed letter is an appeal for donations to support the election of the 32 endorsed Combat Veterans For Congress running in 2014, would you kindly review it, donate funds in “any amount” that you can afford, and please pass it on to those in your address book who would support the elections of the endorsed Combat Veterans For Congress listed in the attachment.                                

 

My Fellow Americans,

 

     In less than 56 days, the most important Congressional election in 238 years will take place.  It is an election that will determine whether The Free Enterprise System that built the most effective economic engine in the history of mankind will continue, or whether we will become a Socialist State. 

 

     This election will determine if repeated violation of the US Constitution by the occupant of the Oval Office, Attorney General Holder and the Democrats in Congress will be allowed to continue. 

 

      It is an election that will determine if the out of control spending and taxing by irresponsible members of Congress will continue, or if Congress will stop the insane spending and taxing.

 

     This election will determine if the unilateral disarmament of the US Armed Forces will continue, or if the newly-elected Congress will put a stop to the hollowing out of the US military.

 

     We need a Congress appreciative of the values that have made our country great; we can achieve that by electing Combat Veterans For Congress who repeatedly put their lives on the line to defend the nation and our bedrock principles.

 

      Over the past 5 years, the Combat Veterans For Congress PAC has endorsed and contributed greatly to the election of 22 Members of Congress.  This year, thus far, we have endorsed 32 Combat Veterans For Congress in 21 state who are running for election in November 2014  (please view them on the endorsements page) 

    

      The “Endorsement page” of our Web site http://www.CombatVeteransForCongress.org provides photos and biographies of each of the endorsed Combat Veterans For Congress.  Each of those Combat Veterans raised their right hands and swore to protect and defend the US Constitution.  They still continue to live by that oath, and our traditional Judeo-Christian values. 

 

      At one time in their lives each endorsed Combat Veterans For Congress, wrote a blank check made payable to “The United States of America” for an amount “up to and including their lives.” 

    

     To paraphrase President Reagan, most people go thru their lives wondering if they’ve made a difference.   The endorsed Combat Veterans For Congress don’t wonder if they made a difference.  You can make a difference by helping us elect them to Congress.

 

      The Combat Veterans For Congress PAC has no paid staff.  We need your help.  All donations are used to recruit, do background checks on candidates, endorse, and campaign for Combat Veterans For Congress.  Once a year, we make this appeal for financial support.  Please consider making an important difference by sending a generous donation using the below listed form, at a minimum, please make a donation in “any” amount that you can afford.  Whether your gift is $25, $50, or $100, we would be deeply grateful for your support. The future of our Country depends on us!  If not now, when?  If not us, who?  

 

      If you go to the “Endorsee of PAC” page of this Web site you will be able to view the list of hundreds Americans, from every walk of life, who have supported us over the past five years. 

 

      We hope you will be able to make a donation, on the Donate page of our Web site, to support our effort and to make a change in the composition of Congress.
