Runaway Sierra Leone cyclist is found...
but now their three relay squads go
missing as team says it doesn´t want
to go back to Ebola-ridden country

Daily Mail [UK], by Steph Cockroft

A Sierra Leone cyclist who ´vanished´ from the Commonwealth Games in an apparent bid to avoid going back to his Ebola-stricken country has been found - but several of his teammates do not want to return home. The plea from the athletes was made as Sierra Leone sportstars failed to turn up for four separate events, sparking fears that even more of the country´s athletes could be going missing. It comes as the World Health Organisation issued a warning about the epidemic of Ebola in West Africa - which they now say has killed more than 700 people in four countries.

The epidemic almost died out once but was renewed when people with the disease left the treatment center to go home. Result, new outbreak at home. A civil servant goes to his sister´s funeral in Sierra Leone and then travels to his home in Nigeria without determining the cause of his sister´s death. He learns the hard way during his second flight and dies 2 days later. People who may have been exposed need to be kept from traveling. A 3 week quarantine is a loss of freedom but miniscule compared to the loss of thousands of lives.

No problem. Barry will take them in if they can manage to walk across the southern border.

Climate Change is even worse than
Ebola says British Medical Journal
Breitbart London [UK], by James Delingpole    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 10/3/2014 6:43:38 AM     Post Reply
Climate change is even deadlier than ebola according to the editor of one of the world´s oldest and most distinguished medical journals. Fiona Godlee, editor in chief of the BMJ (formerly the British Medical Journal; established 1840), claims in her latest editorial: Deaths from Ebola infection, tragic and frightening though they are, will pale into insignificance when compared with the mayhem we can expect for our children and grandchildren if the world does nothing to check its carbon emissions. And action is needed now. Not all BMJ readers will necessarily agree with this assessment, Godlee concedes: When The BMJ started publishing articles on climate

Approaching half of all terrorist plots against Britain are still hatched in Afghanistan and Pakistan 13 years after British troops were sent to the country to destroy Al Qaeda, David Cameron revealed this morning. The Prime Minister, in Kabul on an unannounced visit to meet with the country’s new unity government, said Britain had ‘paid a very high price’ for liberating Afghanistan from the Taliban--with 453 British soldiers losing their lives. Mr Cameron claimed Britain and other allies had forced Al Qaeda out the region and the number of plots originating in the region had fallen. But he admitted the

A cameraman working for NBC News in Liberia has become the fourth American to contract the deadly Ebola virus. Freelance journalist Ashoka Mukpo, 33, is being flown privately back to the U.S. for treatment, while the network’s chief medical editor and correspondent Dr. Nancy Snyderman and the rest of her team are also returning and will be placed in quarantine for 21 days. Neither Snyderman nor the other members of her team are currently displaying any signs of the disease, said NBC. The infected journalist was only hired this week to be a second cameraman for Snyderman, who has been reporting on the

Former Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke has revealed that he recently tried to remortgage his house, but was turned down. Mr Bernanke, who was paid almost $200,000 a year leading the US central bank before stepping down in January, also suggested that banks are tightening lending too much following tough regulation that was brought in following the financial crisis. Speaking at a conference in Chicago on Thursday, Mr Bernanke told Mark Zandi of Moody’s Analytics: "Just between the two of us, I recently tried to refinance my mortgage and I was unsuccessful in doing so.” When the audience laughed, he

France is “finished” and Britons should get their investments out of the country quickly, according to the managing director of John Lewis. After a visit to Paris this week, Andy Street said he had “never been to a country more ill at ease ... nothing works and worse, nobody cares about it". "You get on Eurostar from something I can only describe as the squalor pit of Europe, Gare du Nord, and you get off at a modern, forward-looking station [St Pancras]." [Snip] Having collected an award on behalf of John Lewis in Paris, Mr Street joked that the gong

Health officials are under fire for their handling of America´s first Ebola case. Here are five questions being asked. Q: Why was Thomas Eric Duncan allowed to leave Liberia? A: Duncan had been in close contact with a 19-year-old woman who died of Ebola on Sept 16. [Snip] Q: Why was Duncan sent home from a Texas hospital with antibiotics? A: Only last week the Texas Presbyterian Health Hospital in Dallas had a run-though for staff of what they should do if an Ebola patient turned up in their area. But when it did happen they failed to recognise the

Ebola outbreak: UK urges decisive

The UK has called for urgent decisive action from the international community to deal with the growing Ebola epidemic in West Africa. Speaking at a conference in London co-hosted with Sierra Leone, UK Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond called for more financial aid, doctors and nurses. British nurse William Pooley, who contracted Ebola in Sierra Leone, made an emotional appeal for more action. Leading charity Save the Children earlier warned that Ebola was spreading at a "terrifying rate", with the number of new recorded cases doubling every few weeks. It said that a rate of five new Ebola cases an hour

A doctor checked in at Atlanta airport in protective goggles, gloves, boots and overalls in a bitter protest at the CDC for ´sugar-coating´ the true scale of Ebola in the US. Gil Mobley said he was left horrified yesterday when he was allowed to fly from Guatemala to Atlanta with no interrogation or checks on his equipment. Enraged, the microbiologist and emergency trauma physician boarded his next flight from Atlanta International Airport - minutes from the center´s headquarters - wearing a protective white jumpsuit branded with the words ´CDC is lying!´ It comes two days after a man in Texas

Hamas Agrees with Netanyahu:

While it may reject Israel’s existence, Hamas certainly agrees with Prime MInister Binyamin Netanyahu--and disagrees with the US State Department--that its “ultimate goal” is to establish an “Islamic state” (caliphate) over what it sees as the “occupied lands of Palestine.” In short, while the US disputes PM Netanyahu’s statement that “Hamas is ISIS, and ISIS is Hamas”--Hamas itself does not. China Weekly reported that, on Tuesday, senior Hamas leader Mahmoud al-Zahar said in a ceremony to honor police officers killed in the latest Gaza operation that "we don´t want to establish an Islamic emirate in Gaza; we want an Islamic state in

It appears an act of compassion led Thomas Eric Duncan to contract Ebola, and become the first patient diagnosed with the deadly disease on U.S. soil. Just four days before he boarded a plane bound for Dallas, Texas, Duncan helped carry his landlord´s convulsing pregnant daughter to a Liberian clinic to be treated for Ebola, the New York Times reports. The woman, named by The Times as 19-year-old Marthalene Williams died the next day, after being turned away from the overcrowded hospital that didn´t have room for her. The landlord´s son and three neighbors who came in contact with the

What do you suppose is the biggest item in the budget of a working household? The mortgage? The car? The utility bills? Nope. Far greater than any of these--greater, indeed, than all of them combined--is the tax bill. Because taxation is generally deducted at source, we often fail to realise how much we’re paying. For most people, the only time when they must, so to speak, write a cheque to the taxman is when they pay council tax--which duly elicits disproportionate resentment. Consider the figures above. They make a nonsense of Labour’s “cost of living” campaign, because the party plans to

Saudi Arabia to Get Advanced

The United States on Wednesday authorized a $1.75 billion arms deal for Saudi Arabia. The deal will allow the Saudis to upgrade their stock of Patriot air defense missiles, replacing them with PAC-3 missiles. The missiles will be supplied by Lockheed Martin and Raytheon, the State Department said. Congress has 30 days to block the sale, but a State Department spokesperson said that this was unlikely. The Defense Security Cooperation Agency, which is in charge of foreign weapons sales, said the deal would help the Saudis to better defend themselves, replacing earlier-stage Patriots which are now obsolete and suffer from

Former President Jimmy Carter claimed Wednesday that he would have been re-elected and beaten Ronald Reagan in 1980 if had been more “manly” in his dealings with Iran. Interviewed by the show "CNBC Meets," Carter repeated his belief that the failed mission to free American hostages held in Tehran killed his chances, but then added that had he gone to war, America would have rewarded him with a second term in 1980.

My last article for American Thinker was too long. And too short. Too long because the gurus tell us articles should be about 600 words. My story about the president talking to the black caucus about white people inflicting constant racial injustice on black people came in at 1500 words. I was just getting warmed up. I thought it strange that at the same time the president was trying to persuade us that black people are relentless victims, black people were committing acts of racial violence in places like Seattle, Miami, Indianapolis, Bronx, Ferguson, Kansas City, Providence, Minneapolis and 18 miles from where

The quintessential question of Watergate was “what did the President know and when did he know it?” Obamagate, the vast scandal that encompasses an entire presidency, offers a preemptive answer. Obama didn’t know anything and he never knew it. At least not until, like smuggling weapons to druglords, bugging journalists, IRSing his political enemies and killing vets, his right hand found out about what his left hand was doing from the morning paper. After skipping 58% of his daily intelligence briefings in Term 1 and 59% of them in Term 2, he went on 60 Minutes and blamed intelligence agencies for being

Kansas Tea Party supporters are threatening to sit out the state’s pivotal Senate election, potentially dealing another blow to the reelection hopes of Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.). Though schisms within the GOP base rarely have such an outsized impact on a general election contest, the lack of support from the conservative base could be devastating to the vulnerable Roberts’s chances against surging independent Greg Orman. Multiple sources tell The Hill that a group of Tea Party leaders in the state are meeting Wednesday to try to decide whether they should go to bat for the incumbent this fall or sit out of

President Obama this week committed professional suicide. Let me explain. There is a theory in politics that once a leader has fired 50 or more people from his or her administration, he or she is finished. The reason being that by creating so many enemies ‘outside the tent’, the tent itself becomes too deluged with poisonous bile to avoid sinking into a quagmire of back-stabbing ignominy. Obama went a lot further than firing 50 people. He managed to single-handedly alienate 200,000 employees in the American intelligence agencies by going on 60 Minutes and ruthlessly chucking them all under a bus

Count House Speaker John Boehner as a fan of Jeb Bush for president. He also hasn´t spoken to Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz in two years. The driving issue of the 2016 election will be “competence,” and if former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush runs, “he’s got a real shot” at winning, the Ohio Republican told the Cincinnati Enquirer on Tuesday. Boehner applauded Bush’s ability to “talk about Republican issues better than most anybody that we’ve got out there,” approving of his “real record of reform” as Florida’s governor from 1999 to 2007. He also called potential candidates Ohio Gov. John

A recent fight between Rosie O´Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg has producers at The View looking to add a cool-down room for the ladies. After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner. Goldberg told O´Donnell, ´F*** it, I told you to leave it alone and you just don´t want to listen. If you want to go there Rosie,

HOUSTON, Texas -- Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay was found not guilty today by the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals. This is the highest appellate court in Texas for criminal cases and thus brings DeLay’s political persecution to an end. The court upheld the ruling last year from the Texas 3rd Court of Appeals. That decision tossed out the convictions on money laundering and conspiracy charges. At that time Justice Melissa Goodwin wrote “The fundamental problem with the state´s case was its failure to prove proceeds of criminal activity,” according to a September 19th report on Breitbart News.

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) talks to a lot of people in the course of doing his job, but for some reason, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) isn’t one of them, how very curious. “I’ve not talked to him since he’s been elected,” Boehner revealed in an interview with the Cincinnati Enquirer, and left it at that. Cruz was elected in 2012 and played a major role in recent events that threatened to derail Boehner’s agenda, like the times Cruz attempted to hijack down the federal government over Obamacare, the debt ceiling, border patrol, etc. Boehner didn’t elaborate further, according to

WASHINGTON — About a month from the 2014 midterm elections House Democratic Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was already predicting a sweep for her party in the 2016 election. Referring to Republicans, Pelosi said, "Their days are numbered. I know that in two years there will be a Democratic Congress and a Democratic President." Pelosi has publicly urged former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to run for president and said if Clinton does decide to run she would win. While she was clearly looking ahead the top House Democrat was careful not to concede the election this November. Pressed about the prediction she made

Piers predicts that now that President Obama went on “60 Minutes” and distanced himself from U.S. national intelligence agencies on the rapid spread of ISIS, he’s guaranteed himself leaks to the media for the remainder of his
