American Doctor With Ebola:
"I Witnessed the Horror"

NBC 4 (New York), by Frank Heinz

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 8/8/2014 10:09:28 PM

Dr. Kent Brantly, the Fort Worth doctor who contracted Ebola doing aid work in West Africa, spoke Friday from his isolated Atlanta hospital room about the "horror" he witnessed and about his faith in God. Brantly, who was volunteering with the charity Samaritan´s Purse in Liberia amid the worst-ever outbreak of the deadly virus, has been improving steadily after being treated with an experimental drug. "I am growing stronger every day, and I thank God for his mercy as I have wrestled with this terrible disease," Brantly said in a statement issued from the Emory University Hospital room where he

He is from the poorest county in Texas.
Why did he not stay home and help his fellow Americans?

Answer #1 - He went where God called him to go. Did it ever occur to anyone that curing Dr. Brantly will lead to more successful treatment for this horrific disease? Can we have a longer view here than our own selfish fear - and perhaps - should ebola come here - helping fellow Americans is precisely what he did.

I wish we knew more about how the doctors got the disease. Dr. Khan was an expert in Ebola.

Our prayers are with Dr. Brantly.

Praise be to God that he and Nancy seem to be getting better... And to their faithful families and medical teams in Liberia and Atlanta... And to Samaritan´s Purse...

To those who do not understand the call of The Almighty on their lives, I am sorry... but it gives peace "that passes all understanding" as we trust and seek His face.

And yes, there will be trials ["Have you considered Job"?] but always His promise, "I will never leave you nor forsake you" and the truth of Psalm 23...

Praying for their full recovery - the\doctor and the nurse put themselves out there ministering to the stricken. God is likely working his purpose out as the trial medicine looks promising.

Obama to defend economic

Posted By: JoniTx- 9/30/2014 2:10:32 PM     Post Reply
President Obama will deliver a speech on "America´s economic greatness" Thursday at Northwestern University in Chicago as the White House looks to refocus attention on the economy ahead of the midterm elections. Obama will "take a step back from the rush of current events to explain what we´ve done to recover from the Great Recession and what we need to do to ensure that more middle-class Americans feel that progress in their own lives," senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer said in an email to supporters. The president will also tie America´s economic prosperity to its ability to project leadership across the

Northeast loses 40% of House seats
as people flee high-tax states
Washington Examiner (DC), by Paul Bedard    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 9/30/2014 1:46:42 PM     Post Reply
The Northeast, once the nation’s political engine that produced presidents, House speakers and Senate giants including the late Edward M. Kennedy, is losing clout in Washington as citizens flee the high-tax region, according to experts worried about the trend. The Census Bureau reports that population growth has shifted to the South and the result is that the 11 states that make up the Northeast are being bled dry of representation in Washington. Critics blame rising taxes in states such as Massachusetts and Connecticut for limiting population growth in the Northeast to just 15 percent from 1983 to 2013, while the

Why Are Black Staffers
Fleeing Capitol Hill?

Aides say a number of high-ranking African-American congressional staffers have left in recent years, leading to a dearth of diversity on the Hill. The Obama era hasn’t been a period of progress for black Capitol Hill staffers, and aides say a “diversity drain” of many senior African Americans to the private sector and the White House in recent years is partly to blame. “I started on the Hill 10 years ago, and I don´t see a significant difference in the number” of black congressional staffers, John Jones, the chief of staff to Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, told The Daily Beast. “[Progress]

Secret Service Director Julia Pierson faced a tough inquiry by lawmakers today as she appeared before a House committee to answer questions about the Sept. 19 White House security breach in which a man armed with a knife entered the executive mansion. "It´s clear that our security plan was not executed properly. I take full responsibility. What happened is unacceptable and it will never happen again," Pierson told the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee in her opening remarks. She said she was committed to a full review and implementing recommended changes. She sat opposite committee members just as new

   

 



 
10th child diagnosed with mysterious

DENVER — State health officials confirmed a tenth case of paralysis affecting children who have recently had respiratory infections. Medical experts made the announcement Monday at Children’s Hospital Colorado in Aurora. Dr. Sam Dominguez says outside of the respiratory problems, there is no common link between cases. “There are no commonalities as far as where they live, schools or day cares they attend.” The hospital says before Monday, four of the children admitted tested positive for enterovirus 68, and four others for the rhinovirus (which causes the common cold). The other was not tested. The patients range in age from

60,000 Syrian Kurds fled their villages as ISIS advanced in northern Syria in September. But, leftists believe the real threat in Syria is not ISIS. It’s global warming. In fact, the left believes climate change created ISIS and imperils Afghan girls who want to attend school. Yes, really. Charles B.

Conservative filmmaker and author Dinesh D’Souza told Breitbart News that the federal government was “out to get me” and tried but failed to “put me away” during a wide-ranging interview at the National Security Action Summit on Monday. “I know that the government was not only out to get me but to put me away—and put me away in such a significant way that if I got a sixteen-month sentence, for example, I’d be in a federal prison camp from now until the end of next year,” D’Souza said in the interview, conducted for Breitbart News Radio for Sirius XM

The Department of Agriculture, the agency that administers the food stamp program, has announced that it will spend $31.5 million on a new program that will promote a healthy diet for recipients of the assistance. The National Institute of Food and Agriculture, a division of the Department of Agriculture, is developing the program to urge recipients of the SNAP food stamp program to choose more fruits and fresh foods. "Too many struggling families do not have adequate access to nutritious food," Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said on Monday.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry, sounding like a guy who is ready to run for president in 2016, said Tuesday that “preparation” is the key to running for the highest office in the land. Mr. Perry, who crashed out of the 2012 race for the GOP nomination, said he had been coming off back surgery at the time and simply wasn’t ready to run for the most influential position in the world. “I did not prepare,” he told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “I was a bit arrogant.” Mr. Perry, who’s finishing up 14 years as governor, is making the media rounds despite

   

 

  


 
Sen. Harry Reid Playing Major
Role in Senate Races
Associated Press, by Erica Werner    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 9/30/2014 9:42:55 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON- Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has twice won elections he was supposed to lose. If Democrats maintain control of the Senate in November, much of the credit will go to the wily Nevada Democrat. Reid is not on the ballot this year, but his position as majority leader depends on Democrats denying Republicans the net six seats they need to retake the Senate. By all accounts he is working as single-mindedly toward that goal as any of his endangered incumbents. With his stooped shoulders, monotone delivery and occasionally impolitic remarks, Reid, 74, does not shine on the campaign trail. He

Rep. Donna F. Edwards is stooped in a corner fiddling with the sound system. Her event, guest-starring House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, is about to start. There is barely room to move in the small Hyattsville bakery, and side conversations are bouncing off the walls. A microphone would be helpful when the speeches begin, and Edwards, who likes to fix stuff, is not above squatting in a fuchsia frock to try to get the job done. Almost as soon as she unseated an incumbent congressman in a Democratic primary in 2008, Edwards became all about pushing out the Democratic Party’s

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

The man who jumped the White House fence this month and sprinted through the front door made it much farther into the building than previously known, overpowering one Secret Service officer and running through much of the main floor, according to three people familiar with the incident. An alarm box near the front entrance of the White House designed to alert guards to an intruder had been muted at what officers believed was a request of the usher’s office, said a Secret Service official who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

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

Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace asked neurosurgeon and GOP novelty Ben Carson, who is very vocally teasing a presidential run, if his inexperience disqualified him from the office, especially given the results of Obama’s alleged inexperience. “After looking at Barack Obama and what’s happened with his lack of political experience over the last six years, wouldn’t putting Ben Carson in the Oval Office be akin to putting a politician in an operating room and having him perform one of your brain surgeries?” Wallace asked. Shockingly, Carson said no. “I think what is required for leadership is wisdom and the

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

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

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. It comes as the Secret Service is facing more questions over

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.

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.

Democrats think conservatives in general, and Tea Partiers in particular, are stupid. Here’s how to reinforce that belief: Sit out the 2014 congressional elections because your favorite candidate lost his primary bid to an establishment Republican. If you live in Kansas, for example, you can suck your thumb while Democrat ringer Greg Orman beats Republican Senator Pat Roberts. If you’re a Kentucky conservative, you can stay home and b***h about Mitch while Alison “Rubberstamp” Grimes heads to Washington. If you’re in Mississippi, you can stay mad at Thad and allow Travis “no repeal” Childers to win. That’ll show those RINOs! It
