First cases of potentially deadly
mosquito-borne virus confirmed
to have been contracted in Florida

Daily Mail [UK], by Ryan Gorman

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 7/18/2014 7:29:15 AM

Florida authorities have confirmed the first two cases of a painful mosquito-borne disease contracted in the United States. State health officials confirmed a Miami-Dade County female and a male in Palm Beach County have become the first two people to contract chikungya in the United States. Dozens of infections have previously been reported in Florida alone, according to the Tampa Bay Times, but these are the first two to have been contracted in the States. [Snip] Symptoms include fever, severe joint pain, swelling, rashes, and a feeling similar to arthritis for years, according to the Herald.

Comments:
Ordered a mosquito net for our 9´ patio umbrella last night, on sale at Improvements.com (29.99). Been thinking about this virus emerging not far from the SE SC coast, plus we live near wetlands so am adding it to the arsenal of stuff we already have for the nasty things.

Maybe it´s finally time to give the greatest mass-murderer of the 20th century---Rachel Carson---the heave-ho. Bring back DDT and use it liberally. O wait...the Secret State Environmental Police wouldn´t hear of it.

Along the lines of NASCAR sponsorship decals, these infected mosquitos should bear the logos of EPA and the open-borders State Department, to remind the victims they create of the source of the needless misery.

You people with the DDT suggestion. Get serious! This is the Øbama Administration. They are as apt to suddenly declare the Tiger Mosquito an endangered species and import more of them from Sri Lanka!!! Anyone caught slapping an endangered mosquito will be fined $5,000.00 and forced to complete a "Mosquito re-education class at their own expense."

A neighbor who has property near Jacksonville, FL just returned from there and commented that many people are using garage door screens. Haven´t seen even one here in coastal SC yet. She also likes the fact that the ones popular there are black and difficult to see through from the outside.

I´m tempted, yes, very tempted.

Mass default looms as world
sinks beneath a sea of debt
Telegraph [UK], by Jeremy Warner    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 9/30/2014 8:31:18 AM     Post Reply
As if the fast degenerating geo-political situation isn’t bad enough, here’s another lorry load of concerns to add to the pile. The UK and US economies may be on the mend at last, but that’s not the pattern elsewhere. On a global level, growth is being steadily drowned under a rising tide of debt, threatening renewed financial crisis, a continued squeeze to living standards, and eventual mass default. [Snip] The raw numbers make explosive reading. Contrary to widely held assumptions, the world has not yet begun to de-lever. In fact global debt-to-GDP--public and private non financial debt--is still growing, breaking

12.00 Boris is cheering up delegates: asking whether there are any ´kippers in the audience and saying that Ed Miliband´s "surreal" speech has put victory in the Tories´ grasp. "The subconscious rebelled. The baggage handlers in his memory went on strike and refused to load the word deficit onto the conveyor belt of his tongue," says Boris. Modestly, the Mayor says he is a merely a "municipal toenail", and decries the "Londonophobia" seen in the Scottish independence referendum.

The break-in at the White House makes the US Secret Service look terrible. It also sheds light on an agency that operates largely behind the scenes. [Snip] On Friday, a man later identified as Iraq War veteran Omar Gonzalez climbed a fence, ran more than 60m (197ft) and made it through the North Portico door. One former Secret Service officer who asked not to be identified ("I´m a private person," he says) is as puzzled as anyone about his former colleagues--and "how hapless they seemed". He says he´s spent "many hours" standing at the North Portico door. He wonders how Gonzalez made it

CAIRO--An Egyptian court sentenced 68 Muslim Brotherhood supporters to jail terms on Tuesday, judicial sources said, in a case related to deadly violence a year ago after the army´s ouster of Islamist President Mohamed Morsi. All were found guilty of killing 30 people and intending to kill others in Cairo on October 6, 2013, when more than 50 people died in clashes across the country between Morsi opponents and supporters. [Snip] Thousands of Brotherhood supporters are in jail and the state crackdown over the past year has expanded to include liberal and secular activists who played a leading role in

With the world concentrating on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu´s hard-hitting remarks at the UN General Assembly on Monday, the Zionist Organization of America turns attention to President Barack Obama´s address to the UN--and what it calls his "baseless and offensive claim" that "the violence engulfing the region today has made too many Israelis ready to abandon the hard work of peace." [Snip] He then mentioned the Muslim extremist violence "engulfing the region" in the same breath as the "too many Israelis [who are] ready to abandon the hard work of peace."

British Isis hostage John Cantlie has appeared in a new propaganda video on behalf of the terrorist group, criticising Obama´s ´disappointingly predictable military strategy´ against the terror group. Wearing an orange Guantanamo-style jumpsuit and speaking directly to the camera, Cantlie attacks the West´s plans to use Iraqi troops and Syrian rebels to fight Isis. In a forced speech, Cantlie says organising the Iraqi army will take months, and describes the Free Syrian Army as an ´undisciplined, corrupt and largely ineffective fighting force.´ He also says that arming the Syrian rebels with Western weapons is ´largely useless´, because many are sold on the

Given how completely Barack Obama´s foreign policy has been upended by the rise of Isil in Syria, it is not surprising that the president should try and gloss over the scale of his own miscalculation when it came to the threat posed by the jihadists--but that doesn´t mean he should be allowed to get away with it. This weekend Mr Obama had the cheek to blame his intelligence agencies for the fact that the White House was "caught by surprise" by the sudden rise of Isil, publicly throwing James Clapper, his Director of National Intelligence, under the bus for failing

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu addressed the United Nations General Assembly in New York on Monday, in a bid to refute the smear campaign launched by Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas claiming Israel is guilty of "genocide." "Distinguished delegates, I come here from Jerusalem to speak on behalf of my people, the people of Israel," Netanyahu began. "I have come here to speak about the dangers we face [. . ] against the brazen lies about my country and about the people who defend it." The Prime Minister emphasized that Israel´s fight against Hamas is a microcosm of the fight against global

Seeing my old friend Mark Reckless in another party is sad. A devoted and patriotic MP, he has just taken the difficult decision to leave the Conservatives for Ukip. [Snip] The electorate is not a series of blocs that can be lumped together. I sometimes find myself having to correct interviewers who ask me about Ukip ‘taking your votes’. They’re not our votes, I say; they belong to the people who cast them. Nor, of course, are the Conservative and Ukip programmes identical. Last week, Ukip made a Leftward shift in pursuit of such Labour seats such as Rotherham, Grimsby

Fierce fighting has been reported on the outskirts of Baghdad where ISIS militants are attempting to seize control of the Iraqi capital--despite ongoing Western airstrikes against the terror group. The fighting is taking place just one mile to the west of the city, with government forces desperately trying to hold off the militants, who allegedly killed up to 1,000 soldiers during clashes yesterday. ISIS have held a number of towns and villages close to the Iraqi capital since earlier in the year, when government troops melted away following a lightning advance in the west of the country--enabling the terrorist group

Brave Kurdish soldiers battling Islamic State militants in northern Syria have converted tractors and lorries into tanks by adding metal plates to create Mad Max-style road warriors. The peshmerga troops were forced to take the initiative and create their own armoured vehicles after the far better equipped ISIS jihadists repeatedly got the better of the Kurds´ Soviet-era military fleet. [Snip] Despite the odds being against them, peshmerga forces have bravely fought back against the estimated 31,000 ISIS militants operating in Syria and Iraq--whose self-declared ´caliphate´ forms an area larger than Britain with a population of four million brutally oppressed citizens.

The L.A. Times is warning that the “worst is yet to come” if a grand jury fails to indict white officer Darren Wilson for shooting and killing black 18-year-old Michael Brown. If the grand jury fails to indict the officer who killed Michael Brown, almost everyone here thinks things will get worse. “They’re not going to be looting next time,” said Kevin Seltzer, 30, who lives at an apartment complex near where Brown, 18, was shot. “They’re going to burn the city down.” The article highlights recent indications that the city is “far from finding peace,” including continued clashes with officers, the shooting

President Obama said the shooting death of a black teen by a white police officer last month in Ferguson, Missouri, exposed the racial divide in the American justice system that “stains the heart of black children.” Speaking at the annual Congressional Black Caucus Foundation dinner in Washington on Saturday night, Mr. Obama said the death of Michael Brown “awakened our nation” to a reality that black citizens already understood. “In too many communities around the country, a gulf of mistrust exists between local residents and law enforcement,” Mr. Obama said. “Too many young men of color feel targeted by law

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014. The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

For President Obama, the color of a man’s skin is far more important than the content of his character. On the night when a police officer was shot in a Missouri town torn by racial strife, the president donned a shiny tuxedo to attend a ritzy black awards dinner, where he said police nationwide are to blame for community mistrust, even claiming that “most Americans” think the country is racist. Remember, when Ferguson exploded in racial rage in August, Mr. Obama chose not to curtail his 15-day vacation, spending day after day on the golf course in the white-skinned, white-wined, millionaire playground

The U.S. had expected the Iraqi army to do more against extremists, president says in acknowledgment of intelligence shortcomings. President Obama acknowledged that the U.S. underestimated the rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS, also called ISIL) and overestimated the ability of the Iraqi military to fend off the militant group in an interview that will air Sunday on 60 Minutes. The president was asked by 60 Minutes correspondent Steve Kroft about comments from Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who has said the U.S. not only underestimated ISIS, it also overestimated the ability and will of the

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

The Secret Service was unaware for four days that a man had fired a high-powered rifle at the White House in 2011 in a ´fumbled´ response that left the Obamas furious, says a new report. Officers allegedly performed a string of security lapses after Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez shot at least seven bullets at the executive mansion in Washington from his car. At the time, President Barack Obama, his wife Michelle and their older daughter Malia were not at home, but their younger daughter Sasha and Mrs Obama´s mother, Marian Robinson, were inside.

President Obama firmly believes the United States is better off now than when he took office, even though the American people cannot “feel” it. During an interview with 60 Minutes’ Steve Kroft, Obama said, “the country is definitely better off than when I came into office.” “When I came into office, our economy was in crisis,” Obama said. The president then cited lower unemployment, private sector job growth, and deficit cuts as evidence of his administration’s success. “I can put my record against any leader around the world in terms of digging ourselves out of a terrible, almost unprecedented financial crisis,” Obama said.

The Justice Department is expected to ban profiling by federal law enforcement. Counter-terror investigators would be barred from undercover operations in mosques or other religious institutions unless there is reason to believe criminal activity is going on there, under a new policy expected within weeks. The new rules would ban profiling based on religion, ethnicity or sexual orientation and includes no exemption for national security investigations, the Los Angeles Times reports. The announcement of the new policy to crack down on law enforcement profiling was delayed for several months because of White House
