Documents Obtained by Judicial Watch Reveal that Fast and Furious Rifle Was Used in 2013 Phoenix Gang-Style Assault

OCTOBER 16, 2014

Grassley/Issa letter to Justice Department cites its failure to notify Congress, credits Judicial Watch with overcoming DOJ attempt to “limit its exposure to public scrutiny”

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch today announced that, based on information uncovered through a Judicial Watch public records lawsuit against the City of Phoenix, the U.S. Congress has confirmed that an AK 47 rifle used in a July 29, 2013, gang-style assault on an apartment building that left two people wounded was part of the Obama Department of Justice (DOJ) Operation Fast and Furious gunrunning program.
An October 16 letter sent from Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA) and Rep. Darryl Issa (R-CA) to Deputy Attorney General James Cole discloses that “we have learned of another crime gun connected to Fast and Furious. The [Justice] Department did not provide any notice to the Congress or the public about this gun.” Grassley (Ranking Member on the Senate Judiciary Committee) and Issa (Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee) detail:

Based on the serial number [1977DX1654] from the police report obtained by Judicial Watch and documents obtained during our Fast and Furious investigation, we can confirm that the assault rifle recovered in the vehicle on July 30, 2013, was purchased by Sean Christopher Stewart. Stewart pled guilty to firearms trafficking charges resulting from his involvement with Operation Fast and Furious … Stewart purchased this particular firearm on December 8, 2009, one of 40 that he purchased that day while under ATF surveillance” (emphasis in original document).

The Phoenix Police reports, which the letter from Congress references, were obtained by Judicial Watch thanks to a lawsuit filed against the City of Phoenix, AZ, seeking the Police Department’s records about the gang assault (Judicial Watch v. City of Phoenix (No. CV2014- 012018)). The lawsuit was filed on October 2 after the City of Phoenix ignored an August 5, 2014, Arizona Public Records Law request for information about the crime and the guns. Judicial Watch believed the reports detailed that a weapon or weapons used in the assault are connected to the federal government’s Fast and Furious gunrunning operation. Today’s letter from Grassley and Issa is official confirmation of Judicial Watch’s understanding from other sources.

Three weeks following the July 29, 2013, assault, four suspects were apprehended in a raid conducted jointly by Phoenix police detectives and investigators from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). According to press reports at the time “numerous rifles and handguns” were found when, “Detectives from the Phoenix Police Department and Homeland Security Investigations served federal search warrants.”

The presence of DHS investigators raised questions because Phoenix was the location of the ATF’s deadly Fast and Furious gunrunning operation. Operation Fast and Furious was a Justice Department/ Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) program in which the Obama administration allowed guns to go to Mexican drug cartels in the hopes that the guns would end up at crime scenes, thereby advancing gun-control policies. Fast and Furious weapons have been implicated in the murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and hundreds of other innocents in Mexico.
In today’s letter to Cole, Grassley accused the Justice Department of a “lack of transparency” for failing to notify Congress of the discovery of the Fast and Furious weapon at the Phoenix crime site:

Obamacare likely to cost $300 billion more than thought – Congressional Budget Office: CBO hasn’t officially investigated the cost of Obamacare since the summer of 2012

Obamacare likely to cost $300 billion more than thought – Congressional Budget Office

by RT October 15, 2014

The real cost of Obamacare will be hundreds of billions of dollars more than expected, Republican members of the Senate Budget Committee now say, and will greatly increase the federal deficit during the next decade.

Contrary to claims made by the White House, United States President Barack Obama’s hallmark health care plan will actually have a tremendous toll on the government, GOP members of the SBC committee allege in a new report.

According to an analysis of data received by the Congressional Budget Office, Senate Republican say so-called Obamacare won’t reduce the federal budget deficit by $180 billion by 2019 as predicted, but will actually set the US back another $131 billion in the hole.

The CBO hasn’t officially investigated the cost of Obamacare since the summer of 2012, Senate Budget Committee Ranking Member Jeff Sessions (R-Alabama) says in the report, and complications in the two-plus years since have, according to his group’s analysis, caused costs to change tremendously.

“The most recent CBO estimate, released in July 2012, indicated the law was projected to reduce the deficit by $109 billion over the 10-year period from FY 2013–2022. Nevertheless, considerable changes have occurred since then: a botched rollout of the insurance exchanges; unilateral changes made by the Administration to exempt certain groups from complying with key aspects of the law; technical adjustments to CBO’s baseline projections for federal health spending; updated economic forecasts; a better understanding of the labor market effects of the legislation; and a new 10-year budget window,” the report reads in part. “Together these changes have significant implications for the sign of the deficit impact of the Democrats’ health law.”

“[I]f nothing had changed since 2012,” the report continues, “then the legislation would be projected to reduce the deficit by $180 billion” by 2024.

After reviewing new data, however, that number changes drastically. In all, GOP analysts say the difference between the 2012 prediction and the latest analyses amounts to $311 billion.

Ebola 101 for Americans

Originally posted on Somewhere in Texas:

by Sue in NM

History of current Ebola outbreak

The Ebola strain in America has been traced back to West Africa. Ebola is a type of filovirus. West African Countries where this outbreak started are Guinea, Sierra Leone,  Liberia and Nigeria.

The U.S. currently has a Level 3 Travel Warning for Guinea,  Sierra Leone and Liberia.  This means only essential personnel should travel to these countries. Nigeria has a Level 1 travel warning. Nigeria has a lower warning level because at the onset of Ebola Nigeria imposed on themselves a travel ban to both incoming and outgoing travel.  They were able to contain the outbreak.

CDC has offices located in international airports and land borders now. At a CDC Press briefing they said border patrol agents have been instructed on what to watch for.

How is Ebola transmitted?

AUSTIN, Texas — As Ebola continued to ravage communities in West Africa this summer, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), a division under the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced “immigration relief measures” for citizens of three countries affected by the deadly virus.

The relief measures, announced on the USCIS website as “Ebola Outbreak-related Immigration Relief Measures to Nationals of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone Currently in the United States,” on August 15, 2014, include the following:

Viewers Quickly Notice Something That ‘Makes No Sense’ in Raw Video of Officials Loading Dallas Ebola Patient Onto Plane


Images emerged of officials loading the second Dallas nurse diagnosed with Ebola onto a plane headed for Atlanta where she is set to receive treatment at Emory University Hospital — and Americans quickly noticed something very strange about the scene.
Among several workers wearing hazmat suits on the runway of Dallas Love Field is a man wearing plain clothes and no apparent protective gear.

— NBC DFW (@NBCDFW) October 15, 2014

NBC DFW explains what occurred on the runway:

The unidentified man stood very near another hazmat-suited worker and then took what appeared to be a container from one of the suited workers. He placed it on the steps to the jet and walked out of view.

He then reappeared as one of the PPE-suited workers came off the plane with red hazmat bags. He took what appeared to be a not-yet-used red bag from the worker in protective gear, then handed it to the workers as they bagged up items from the ambulance ride.Then he conversed with two workers wearing respirators while the red hazmat bags were loaded onto the plane. He then grabbed the container from the stairs and got on the plane which departed Love Field en route to Atlanta.

United States…It’s Here Folks!! Deadly MERS, Also Known As SARS, Virus May Be Airborne, Study Says

Let’s bring the allotted 800,000 M.E. refugees here just like every year since 2009… Is it a leap to say we should expect these invaders to bring their diseases along with their jihad?

“Jun 20, 2014 … In May 2014, CDC confirmed two unlinked cases of MERS in the United Statesone to Indiana, the other to Florida.”
cases continues to appear sporadically with no evidence of sustained human-to-human transmission in communities”

The MERS virus, which first emerged in Saudi Arabia and has since spread throughout the Arabian Peninsula, the U.S., Europe and Southeast Asia, may be airborne, according to a paper published Tuesday.

Researchers found an air sample containing fragments of MERS, or Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus, at a barn that had sheltered an infected camel and a MERS patient. An air sample collected on the day that one of the camels was confirmed to have the illness came back positive for the virus.

“It’s another clue of a role for camels and it’s another indication that this is an airborne virus,” said Laurie Garrett, senior fellow for Global Health at the Council on Foreign Relations. “Neither is a revelation or a shock, but its always important to prove and not just make assumptions,” she added.

Health officials have reported the first case of the mysterious new Middle East Respiratory Syndrome virus, or MERS, in the United States. It’s in a health care worker who traveled to Indiana from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, last month.

Here are five things you need to know about MERS:

It’s new. It’s deadly. There’s no treatment. No one knows where it came from.

MERS was first seen in Saudi Arabia in 2012. Since then it has spread to 16 countries, most in the Middle East but also in Europe and Asia and now including the United States. It’s a coronavirus, a distant relative of the SARS — severe acute respiratory syndrome virus — that infected 8,000 people around the world and killed nearly 800 before it was stopped.

With ‘slamies coming back to the US from the hajj….this will definitely be spread through out the US. Like the Libyan who brought you ebola, these biological jihadist are just as much a threat as the bombs and guns they use.

New York JFK: October 16, 2014 – Alarm after vomiting passenger dies on flight from Nigeria to JFK

A plane from Nigeria landed at JFK Airport Thursday with a male passenger aboard who had died during the flight after a fit of vomiting — and CDC officials conducted a “cursory” exam before announcing there was no Ebola and turning the corpse over to Port Authority cops to remove, Rep. Peter King said on Thursday.
The congressman was so alarmed by the incident — and by what he and employees see as troubling Ebola vulnerabilities at JFK — that he fired off a letter to the federal Department of Homeland Security demanding more training and tougher protocols for handling possible cases there.
The unnamed, 63-year-old passenger had boarded an Arik Air plane out of Lagos, Nigeria, on Wednesday night, a federal law enforcement source said.
During the flight, the man had been vomiting in his seat, the source said. Some time before the plane landed, he passed away. Flight crew contacted the CDC, federal customs officials and Port Authority police, who all boarded the plane at around 6 a.m. as about 145 worried passengers remained on board, the source said.
“The door [to the terminal] was left open, which a lot of the first responders found alarming,” said the source.

Rep. King called the protocol followed after the passenger died “alarming.”Photo: Getty Images

“My understanding was that the passenger was vomiting in the seat,” King (R-LI) said.
“The CDC went on the plane, examined the dead body and said the person did not have Ebola,” King said.
“It was what I was told a cursory examination. The Port Authority cops and personnel from Customs and Border Protection were there, and they were told there was no danger because the person did not have Ebola,” King said.
“But their concern was, how could you tell so quickly? And what adds to the concern is how wrong the CDC has been over the past few weeks.”

The Secret Casualties of Iraq’s Abandoned Chemical Weapons

The soldiers at the blast crater sensed something was wrong.


Andrew T. Goldman in North Topsail Beach, N.C. In August 2008, Mr. Goldman was part of a team near Taji, Iraq, that was trying to destroy munitions that could be used in makeshift bombs. While holding a cracked shell, he noticed a strange smell. Tyler Hicks/The New York Times

From 2004 to 2011, American and Iraqi troops repeatedly encountered, and at times were wounded by, chemical weapons that were hidden or abandoned years earlier.

It was August 2008 near Taji, Iraq. They had just exploded a stack of old Iraqi artillery shells buried beside a murky lake. The blast, part of an effort to destroy munitions that could be used in makeshift bombs, uncovered more shells.

Two technicians assigned to dispose of munitions stepped into the hole. Lake water seeped in. One of them, Specialist Andrew T. Goldman, noticed a pungent odor, something, he said, he had never smelled before.

He lifted a shell. Oily paste oozed from a crack. “That doesn’t look like pond water,” said his team leader, Staff Sgt. Eric J. Duling.

The specialist swabbed the shell with chemical detection paper. It turned red — indicating sulfur mustard, the chemical warfare agent designed to burn a victim’s airway, skin and eyes.

All three men recall an awkward pause. Then Sergeant Duling gave an order: “Get the hell out.”

Five years after President George W. Bush sent troops into Iraq, these soldiers had entered an expansive but largely secret chapter of America’s long and bitter involvement in Iraq.

From 2004 to 2011, American and American-trained Iraqi troops repeatedly encountered, and on at least six occasions were wounded by, chemical weapons remaining from years earlier in Saddam Hussein’s rule.

In all, American troops secretly reported finding roughly 5,000 chemical warheads, shells or aviation bombs, according to interviews with dozens of participants, Iraqi and American officials, and heavily redacted intelligence documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act.

Andrew Cuomo Volunteers Rochester, NY As Ebola Central

Is this what you voted for…he brought you epidemic EV-D68 and now EBOLA…you stupid idiots!!

 Strong Hospital one of 8 to fight Ebola

Updated: Thursday, October 16 2014, 06:22 PM EDT

New York City – Governor Andrew Cuomo said Strong Memorial Hospital is one of eight hospitals in New York State designated to handle any Ebola cases, should they emerge in NYS.

Cuomo held a news conference Thursday afternoon regarding the state’s preparation.

He said it’s unlikely that Ebola will show up in NYS, but wouldn’t be surprised, given the high level of travel into and through New York.

Cuomo, accompanied by Dr. Howard Zucker, Commissioner of the Department of Health, said the state is prepared in case of an outbreak, and that eight hospitals, including Strong, are undergoing training.

Executive director, Planned Parenthood of Central and Western New York Action Fund and Political Committee Announce Baby Killer Candidates

As election season heats up, I am appalled and angered at the posturing of candidates who oppose the full 10 points of the Women’s Equality Act. Nine points are not enough to reflect the reality and the complexity of women’s lives.

In Rochester, the candidates who fully support WEA believe a woman knows what is best for her situation and trust she is capable of making her own decisions. They are:

­ Assemblyman Harry Bronson; ­ Assemblyman Joseph Morelle; ­ Sen. Ted O’Brien; ­ Candidate Gary Pudup; ­ Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Lt. Gov. candidate Kathy Hochul.

Please take time to cast your ballot on Nov. 4 for these individuals because they are not afraid to stand up for the full equality of women.

When you get a mailing from someone saying they support nine points, beware of their sham posturing about equality! To view a candidate’s actual voting record, go to: http://ppactionvoterguide. org/.

RochesterWorks getting $5.2M to assist 1,500 job seekers

To be used for middle-skills jobs training

Bennett J. Loudon
Staff writer

RochesterWorks Inc. is getting a $5.2 million boost in funding that will help about 1,500 workers get training for in-demand middle-skills jobs.

U.S. Sens. Charles E. Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand and Rep. Louise Slaughter, all Democrats, announced the three-year grant awarded under the U.S. Department of Labor’s Ready to Work Partnership, which supports collaborations between employers, nonprofit organizations and job-training programs.

Rochester Works is a private nonprofit agency that contracts with the city and county to provide employment and training programs funded by government grants.

Its executive director, Peter Pecor, said the agency and two associated regional organizations help about 300 to 400 people a year get training and help finding jobs. RochesterWorks, Finger Lakes Works and GLOW Works provide employment services to residents in a nine-county region, including Monroe and surrounding counties.

But those agencies usually run out of money for those programs halfway through their fiscal year, which starts July 1.

“We usually run out in December or January of each each year. This is going to allow us to continue those programs and enhance those programs and serve more people,” Pecor said. The goal is to use the money to serve an additional 500 people annually for the three years of the grant. “It allows us to serve more people that, with our regular funding, we are not able to serve, and serve them in a more intense way,” he said.

The programs funded by the grant will help focus on long-term unemployed people who have been out of work for 26 weeks or more. Often, they need training to update skills and obtain industry certifications and other credentials. Retraining efforts will focus on three segments of the economy: Computers and IT; advanced manufacturing; and health care. “Those are the three areas where we are really going to be concentrat­
ing because that’s where we see the most, the demand from the employer side,” Pecor said.

Local experts say as many as 23,000 jobs go chronically unfilled. Many are middle-skill jobs paying as high as $30-plus per hour. But employers still have trouble finding qualified workers to fill those jobs.

Pecor said five or six new workers will be hired to help with the services provided under the grant. He said less than 10 percent of the funds will go to administrative costs.

“There are a lot of breakthroughs that can be spun off.” KODAK EYES ITS OLD PATENTS

Too Little Too Late For Retired Employees Kicked Off Retirement and Survivor Benefits And Came Up With These Old Patents


Company seeks to use research in new ways


Matthew Daneman

Staff writer

Jeff Clarke

“There are a lot of breakthroughs that can be spun off.”


When it was a photography and imaging giant, Eastman Kodak Co. routinely spent many hundreds of millions a year on research and development. Some of its scientists’ discoveries became new products. Some ended up in a file cabinet. Today a much smaller company, Kodak is looking at new ways of turning those mountains of unused patents into business, CEO Jeff Clarke said Wednesday.

“There are a lot of breakthroughs that can be spun off,” he said as he stood in George Eastman House’s Dryden Theatre, surrounded by dozens of Kodak scientists for the company’s annual Distinguished Inventors Celebration.

Instead of focusing solely on discoveries that could lead to Kodakbranded billion-dollar products, the company will look to the venture capital universe — trading technology for a stake in other companies — or to original equipment manufacturers that would use Kodak technology inside its own products, said Clarke, who started as CEO in March.

Clarke in August announced a new business group, Kodak Technology Solutions, aimed at better commercializing its intellectual property.

While Kodak is focused on a set of printing-related businesses, its patent portfolio has potential uses well outside that, Clarke said Wednesday. “There are health care opportunities, consumer opportunities. …”

The Distinguished Inventors event recognizes its scientists who reach particular milestones in terms of patents awarded. Twelve researchers received their 20th patents over the past year. Another three received their 40th. And two received the company’s Century Award for 100 patents.

Working in Kodak’s labs, “You didn’t always innovate or create inventions for something at hand,” said Century Award winner Mridula Nair of Penfield. “Our management is now seeing this and working to explore the possibilities.”

Kodak now is “like a startup company but with huge intellectual property,” she said.

In his 22 years with Kodak, researcher Lee W. Tutt of Webster said plenty of his patents never ended up being commercialized.

“When you solve problems, they aren’t always problems that make a lot of money,” said Tutt, holding his Century Award after the ceremony. And while it would be nice if some of his discoveries got new life as potential sources of revenue for Kodak, Tutt said, “I’m a researcher, I’m not a business person. Most researchers in some way are puzzle solvers. That’s why I went into science.”

Gov. Andrew Cuomo told a local crowd last summer that his START-UP NY program could be a “catalyst for dramatic transformation.”

Rob Astorino, Cuomo’s Republican opponent in the Nov. 4 election, called the tax-break initiative “the biggest fraud on television” during a Wednesday campaign trip to Rochester.

The program was one of many economic issues where Astorino sought to draw distinctions between Cuomo and himself while also casting doubt on his opponent’s claims of delivering tax relief.There are local stakes in the future of START-UP NY, which offers a 10-year break from income taxes for high-tech companies that relocate or expand on a qualified site — usually property owned by a college. The program recently helped lure data backup and recovery firm Datto to the Rochester Institute of Technology’s Center for Urban Entrepreneurship downtown.

Datto opened its local office in August and expects to eventually employ about 70 people.

But Astorino suggested Wednesday that any benefits from START-UP NY could be fleeting. The program is “exactly what’s wrong with New York state right now,” he said during an interview with the Democrat and Chronicle Editorial Board.

The program picks and chooses winners — in this case, high-tech companies — over other businesses, Astorino said. He predicted that firms involved in the program will simply pack up and leave New York when their taxfree decade ends.

After learning of Astorino’s remarks, Assembly Majority Leader Joseph Morelle, a political ally of Cuomo, released a statement that said START-UP NY was a bipartisan effort that uses universities and research centers to promote entrepreneurship and grow the upstate economy.

“Rob Astorino’s lack of understanding of the most basic principles of economic development ought to give upstate voters significant pause when going to the polls this November,” said Morelle, D-Irondequoit.

Indeed, some Senate Republicans have touted START-UP NY, too. Astorino said they are taking an undeserved victory lap and there is more work to do.

However, when asked about the case of Datto in Rochester, Astorino said the few companies to benefit from START-UP NY should continue to do so.

Rather than offer limited incentives, Astorino said state government needs to tackle the underlying problem that drags down the economy — the tax burden.

“Why don’t we correct the problem that we know exists?” he said. “It’s why businesses are leaving the state in record numbers.”

Astorino favors replacing New York’s eighttiered graduated income tax with just two brackets. He said he also wants to eliminate the estate tax and a state energy tax.

Republican Monroe County Executive Maggie Brooks joined Astorino at the Joseph A. Floreano Rochester Riverside Convention Center and spoke in support of his tax platform. Astorino also was scheduled to speak at the Irondequoit Kiwanis Club and a Monroe County Republicans’ dinner.

At the Democrat and Chronicle Editorial Board, Astorino spoke about his work as Westchester County executive, saying he worked in a bipartisan manner to trim property taxes in his first budget and has not raised them since. He first took office in 2010.

On other fronts, Astorino said that while he takes environmental concerns seriously, he supports the use of hydrofracking to drill for natural gas. He said he would seek a buffer zone near watersheds.

Astorino took several shots at Cuomo. He said corruption in New York is “despicable” and that he hadn’t picked up the governor’s new book because “I don’t read fiction.”

At the local level, Astorino also referred Wednesday to a recent study that ranked the Rochester metropolitan area 343rd out of 363 in the U.S. in terms of its average annual growth. He also called the region’s child poverty rate “shameful.”

“It doesn’t have to be that way,” he said. “We can go back to the real great days that Rochester had, and Rochester can have a wonderful future.”

Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.) sat down with CBS’s Charlie Rose for an exclusive interview on CBS This Morning to promote his memoir All Things Possible: Setbacks and Success in Politics and Life. Throughout the interview, which aired on Tuesday morning, Rose gushed over the New York Democrat and lobbed numerous softball questions at Cuomo before hinting that “I think he would like to be president. I think it’s in his blood.” http://www.mrc.org/biasalerts/charlie-rose-gushes-over-andrew-cuomo-hypes-potential-presidential-run

2. NBC Promotes ‘Close’ Kentucky Senate Race; Todd Pushes 3 Races That Are ‘Big Hurdles’ for GOP

Following a segment that aired during Sunday night’s NBC Nightly News on President Obama’s unpopularity ahead of the midterm elections, the evening news program ran two more midterm election segments on Tuesday. Both segments, however, were not without liberal bias, as one segment promoted the “close” Kentucky Senate race and the other discussed three Senate races to watch that present “big hurdles” for a Republican Senate majority. http://www.mrc.org/biasalerts/nbc-promotes-close-kentucky-senate-race-todd-pushes-3-races-are-big-hurdles-gop

3. Maria Shriver Asks Ann Romney About GOP’s ‘Gender Problem’

In an interview with Ann Romney aired on Tuesday’s NBC Today, special anchor Maria Shriver couldn’t help getting in a dig at Republicans: “The Republican Party is viewed by so many women as having a gender problem, a women’s problem. Do you believe that?” The question came amid a segment that was largely focused on the Romneys funding the creation of a new medical center to research multiple sclerosis – which Ann Romney suffers from – as well as other neurological diseases. http://www.mrc.org/biasalerts/maria-shriver-asks-ann-romney-about-gops-gender-problem

4. ABC and NBC Ignore Announcement of Murder Charges for Benghazi Suspect

Major broadcast networks ABC and NBC both refused to cover the news on Tuesday night that the lone individual the United States has in custody relating to the 2012 terror attacks in Benghazi, Libya has been charged with murder on multiple counts with 17 total charges that could bring the death penalty if convicted. As for those that did it on their Tuesday evening newscasts, both the CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley and the Fox News Channel’s Special Report with Bret Baier offered news briefs on the subject. http://www.mrc.org/biasalerts/abc-and-nbc-ignore-announcement-murder-charges-benghazi-suspect

5. Jon Stewart Throttles Democrats for Hypocrisy on Campaign Spending

In a departure from his usual focus on ridiculing conservatives, Jon Stewart attacked top liberals/Democrats on Monday’s Daily Show for their blatant hypocrisy on the influence of money in politics. Stewart particularly mocked former Democratic senator and current Secretary of State John Kerry for his past lament that “the unending chase for money threatens to steal our democracy itself,” while his party raises hundreds of millions of dollars for its campaigns. http://www.mrc.org/biasalerts/jon-stewart-throttles-democrats-hypocrisy-campaign-spending

Benghazi updates: A new scoop from Attkisson, a new indictment and a new war

First up there’s this shocker. Hillary Clinton’s name has come up, once again, in the ongoing Benghazi scandal:

Here’s the opener from Ms. Attkisson’s latest report:

To Sonya Gilliam, a recent account of improper sorting of Benghazi-related documents at the State Department brought back vivid memories of her own encounters with high-level government officials who withheld, deleted or destroyed public records.
And one name stood out for its familiarity: Cheryl Mills.
A former deputy assistant secretary of state had told The Daily Signal that Mills was present during an after-hours document operation in a basement room of the State Department in October 2012. Mills was chief of staff to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Ebola Camps? Fox Analyst Calls for Quarantine Camps in Every City

October 14, 2014 9:11 am

“They shouldn’t be letting people go into regular hospitals”
(Infowars) – Fox News, always ahead of the curve on panicking the general public into giving up all their rights, aired programming Monday during which an analyst openly called for quarantine camps to be set up all over the country to house those with Ebola like symptoms.
Fox contributor and former actress Stacey Dash called for the federal government to establish emergency centers to hold Americans in isolation, despite the fact that there have only been two confirmed cases of the ebola virus in the US.
“I think they should set up special centers for just Ebola in each state,” Dash said. “They shouldn’t be letting people go into regular hospitals, where it could be spread.”

The Pentagon’s announcement has Republicans and former platoon mates of Bergdahl’s wondering what’s taking so long, as the facts of the case appear fairly cut and dried on the surface.

According to soldiers who served with Bergdahl, the 28-year-old willingly abandoned his base several days before he was kidnapped by the Taliban and taken hostage in June of 2009.

Activists say Kurds halt ISIS advance in Kobani as bombing in Iraq kills 58

H/T Gulfdogs Daily

Islamic State militants are claiming responsibility for a triple suicide bombing that killed at least 58 people in Iraq Sunday, as activists say Kurdish fighters have been able to halt the advance of the extremist group in the Syrian border town of Kobani.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights told the Associated Press the Islamic State militants, also known as ISIS or ISIL, have not been able to advance in Kobani since Friday but are sending in reinforcements. The Observatory’s chief, Rami Abdurrahman, said the group appears to have a shortage of fighters and has brought in members of its religious police known as the Hisbah to take part in the battles.

Terrorist organisation Islamic State is now under attack from guerrillas itself, it was revealed today,

Small groups of Syrians are hunting down ISIS fighters in one of their main strongholds in eastern Syria in a new guerrilla campaign that has emerged as a response to the Islamists’ growing brutality.

The main aim is to generate fear in ISIS’s ranks, said the head of ‘White Shroud’ – a group that says it has killed more than 100 of the militants’ fighters in attacks in Deir al-Zor province in recent months.

UPDATE: Texas Judge Orders Removal of YouTube Video Exposing Abuse in Foster Care System

Texas Legislators Promise Action Against CPS Caseworker

HOUSTON, Texas–Angel Linthicum Cook testified during a hearing this past week that something must be done to hold Child Protective Services (CPS) caseworkers and foster parents accountable for lying, deception, and cover-ups. Texas legislators who listened to her and her children’s’ testimony were appalled by what they heard calling the actions of CPS caseworkers and others “criminal.”

Legislators serving on the Texas Sunset Advisory Commission promised to take action. Rep. Harold V. Dutton, Jr., said it was the worst thing he has heard or seen in state government during his 30 years as a State Representative. He said that he had “never heard a story so bad, so egregious, that it just almost incites a rage in me. This is government at its worse.”

HOUSTON, Texas — In a continuing cover-up by Child Protective Services (“CPS’) in Texas, of a YouTube video produced by a 13-year-old boy that exposes the sexual and physical abuse that he and his brother endured while in CPS foster care. The video also reveals the 377-day nightmare suffered by him and his six siblings after they were ripped from their loving family and placed in four different foster care facilities out of county. The mother told Breitbart Texas “they are trying to rake this abuse under the rug.” Breitbart Texas has procured the YouTube video from a source outside the family.

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

The YouTube video shows the young teenage boy holding homemade signs that convey the story of what CPS caseworkers, and the CPS foster care system, has done to his family. One sign says “I was beatened [sic] and sexually assaulted on a day to day basis while my Social Worker did Nothing.” He holds another sign saying “My abuse goes uninvestigated.”

White House Began Working Toward Islamic Caliphate Long Before Obama Became President (Busting the Myth Of The Most Peaceful Brand Of Islam)

H/T Mary A Kifer
By Shoebat Foundation on October 11, 2014 in Featured, General, IkhwanLeaks
By Walid Shoebat and Ben Barrack

Beneath the stealth of Muslim Brotherhood operatives in the west is an even more sinister and insidious level of deception that involves Sufi Islam and a brand of it known as the Naqshbandi Order. It is this order that the Brotherhood’s agents ultimately serve when they infiltrate western political systems, power centers and institutions, as they have been doing for years. Throughout the 1990’s and even after 9/11, both the Clinton and Bush administrations relied on Muslim Brotherhood front group leaders for outreach to Muslim communities. When that strategy proved problematic, the Bush administration began reaching out to Sufi Muslims like Hisham Kabbani, which has proven to be an even worse strategy.

It is critical for westerners to understand the neo-Ottoman pecking order. Leaders of Muslim Brotherhood front groups in the U.S. who have worn the mask of moderation helped to convince U.S. Presidents Bill Clinton and then George W. Bush that Sufism is the path to peace in the Muslim world. A key figure in the Naqshbandi order is Hisham Kabbani, a figure Shoebat.com has written about before.

Kabbani gained favor with western leaders after 9/11 in part for comments he made in 1999 about 80% of mosques in the U.S. being radical wahhabist mosques funded by Saudi Arabia. Muslim Brotherhood front groups in the U.S. expressed their disagreement but in reality, those groups are ultimately in league with the Naqshbandis and will become mortal enemies of the Saudis when the time is right.

Avi Lipkin: Obama Is An Islamo-Communist Plant And The Antichrist’s ‘Salesman Of The Month’

Remember Avi Lipkin, the right-wing activist who claims President Obama will use Agenda 21 to bring 50-100 million Muslim immigrants to take over America’s national parks and establish Sharia law with the help of the Illuminati and the Free Masons? Well today Lipkin was the special guest on The Dove TV to provide his “high-level expertise on U.S. Middle-East policy.”

Lipkin told host Perry Atkinson that Obama is “either a Communist plant, a Russian plant, which is one of the reasons he would never confront Russia; or, he’s an Islamic plant, in which case he will never go to war against a Muslim country.”

“He said this in his book that he will never go to war against another Muslim country,” Lipkin added, citing a widely circulated but fabricated Obama quote. Lipkin explained that Saudi Arabia will pay the US to take in “50-100 million” Muslim immigrants, warning that “Islam is taking over America.”

Busting the Canned Food Expiration Date MYTH

Busting the Canned Food Expiration Date MYTH

Eagerly, you search through your food pantry to find a tasty treat. Fumbling with an assortment of packaged foods, you come across a can of beans. While your mouth waters with the promise of baked bean goodness, your eyes stumble across a familiar sight the sell-by-date. Checking the wall calendar, you notice the printed date was months ago. With a concern for safety, you throw the beans into the trash and continue your quest for food.
The above scenario is a common ritual throughout many households, but while you think you’re safeguarding your health by tossing an ‘expired’ can into the trash, you’re really wasting money.
One of the biggest misconceptions in our current society is the duration before canned foods become inedible. In fact, most cans don’t feature an expiration date, but rather a ‘for best quality use by’ date stamp. Next time you’re wavering on whether or not a can of food is safe to consume, remember the following:
Canned Foods Are Manufactured for Eternity

Ebola Spreads – Boyfriend of Sick Dallas Nurse Now Also Admitted to Hospital With Ebola Symptoms

by Rick Wells

139 ebola boyfriend 740
CBS DFW in Fort Worth, TX reports that the boyfriend of Dallas nurse Nina Pham, who was infected with Ebola by Thomas Duncan, has now been hospitalized in what they insist is a precautionary measure.
The CDC confirmed on Sunday morning that one other person had been in close contact with Ms Pham after she became symptomatic and capable of transmitting the disease. That person, now revealed to be her boyfriend, was hospitalized on Sunday, the same day that her diagnosis was confirmed.
The boyfriend works for the Fort Worth company Alcon. A message to the staff was sent by their CEO in an effort to address their concerns both for the safety of their coworker as well as themselves.

While Ministers are questioned on their sermons, High School Students Say Pledge in Arabic: ‘One Nat ion Under Allah’

By Rick Wells, GOPTheDailyDose.com

The principal at Rocky Mountain High School in Fort Collins, Colorado, is facing a hailstorm of criticism from some very angry parents and residents.
The school recites the Pledge of Allegiance weekly, on Mondays. Last Monday, a member of their “Cultural Arms Club” led the student body in an Arabic version of the pledge, replacing the words “under God” with “under Allah.”

City of Houston demands pastors turn over sermons

See Video and Read More: http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2014/10/14/city-houston-demands-pastors-turn-over-sermons/

The city of Houston has issued subpoenas demanding a group of pastors turn over any sermons dealing with homosexuality, gender identity or Annise Parker, the city’s first openly lesbian mayor. And those ministers who fail to comply could be held in contempt of court.

“The city’s subpoena of sermons and other pastoral communications is both needless and unprecedented,” Alliance Defending Freedom attorney Christina Holcomb said in a statement. “The city council and its attorneys are engaging in an inquisition designed to stifle any critique of its actions.”

ADF, a nationally-known law firm specializing in religious liberty cases, is representing five Houston pastors. They filed a motion in Harris County court to stop the subpoenas arguing they are “overbroad, unduly burdensome, harassing, and vexatious.”

INSANE CALIPSO LOUIE! The White Man Created Ebola To Kill Black People, Says Noted Scientist Louis Farrakhan


Unlike many people, Dr. Leslie Lobel has not been shocked to hear about the current Ebola epidemic in West Africa, the largest ever recorded since the virus’s discovery in 1976 in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (then Zaire). A Ben-Gurion University of the Negev virologist and a leader in the search for a cure for the devastating disease, Lobel had been predicting such an outbreak.
Well, you can relax, as long as your skin is white. That’s according to ” the 100 percent sane and rational Rev. Louis Farrakhan,” who explains it all:

NYState: Rat complaints rise in NYC; officials disagree with audit

Andrew Cuomo, Governor of New York, laughs during a news conference to announce details of a newly renovated Madison Square Garden in New York, October 24, 2013. Over a billion dollars was spent on the three year, top-to-bottom renovation.  REUTERS/Carlo The laugh test. And failing it.

Verena Dobnik

Associated Press

NEW YORK — New York is losing the rat race. Citizen complaints about pests to the 311 hotline plus online reports went from 22,300 in fiscal year 2012 to 24,586 the next year, city Comptroller Scott Stringer said Sunday.

“Rats are a daily, stomach­turning insult to New Yorkers — whether they’re scurrying over people’s feet on the sidewalks, invading homes where children sleep or swarming through restaurants,” Stringer said.

Stringer said an audit conducted by his office found that the city Department of Health and Mental Hygiene isn’t managing its pest control program effectively. The audit said health inspectors didn’t always follow on their own protocols, and in 160 cases, no field inspection was conducted.

“Without a vigilant and timely response by the city to citizen complaints, this problem will come back to bite us again and again,” he said.

A health department spokesman told New York’s Daily News that the agency “strongly disagrees” with the audit, and is taking a proactive response to exterminating pests in the city. Phone and email messages from The Associated Press requesting comment were not immediately returned on Sunday.

Auditors found that in 24 percent of the cases examined, the agency did not check out complaints within its own 10-day target, Stringer said. In addition, action was stopped prematurely on some citizen complaints before the required number of inspection attempts, according to the audit. And in fiscal year 2013, there was no indication that assessments were conducted in 44 percent of 386 instances where inspectors requested cleanups.

New York State: Senate races to shape agenda; “We will elect a Democratic progressive socialist Senate that’s focused on changing people’s lives at their roots”

Majority control is up for grabs


It takes 32 seats to win a majority in the 63-seat state Senate, and Democrats and Republicans are closely divided. A few key races will determine the power structure. Here are some of them.

55 th District: Sen. Ted O’Brien, D-Irondequoit, is seeking a second term against Republican Rich Funke, a retired TV anchorman. O’Brien won an open seat in 2012 after Sen. James Alesi, R-Perinton, didn’t seek another term in a district that runs from the city of Rochester into northern Ontario County.

40th District: It’s an open seat being vacated by Sen. Greg Ball, R-Patterson, Putnam County. It’s a battleground district that stretches across Westchester, Putnam and Dutchess counties. Democrat Justin Wagner, who narrowly lost to Ball in 2012, faces Republican Terrence Murphy, a Yorktown councilman.

41 st District: Sen. Terry Gipson, D-Rhinebeck, Dutchess County, is seeking a second term against Republican Sue Serino, a Dutchess County legislator. The seat had long been held by Sen. Stephen Saland, R-Poughkeepsie, but Gipson beat him in a three-way race in 2012 in a district that runs across Putnam and Dutchess counties.

46 th District: Sen. Cecilia Tkaczyk, D-Duanesburg, Schenectady County, faces a rematch against Republican George Amedore, a former state assemblyman. Tkaczyk won by eight votes in 2012. The district covers the Albany area and into Ulster County.

Joseph Spector

Albany bureau chief

ALBANY — While all statewide races will be on the ballot Nov. 4, the key races for the state Senate will likely have the biggest impact on state policy over the next two years.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo has a large lead against Republican opponent Rob Astorino in his re-election bid. So about a half-dozen Senate races may determine the fate of issues such as a higher minimum wage, public financing of campaigns and abortion rights in New York.

It’s why Republicans and Democrats are waging an expensive and aggressive battle in races in the Rochester area, the Hudson Valley and Long Island.

Business groups, including the powerful real-estate board in New York City, are pouring money into Republicans’ campaigns. Liberal Democrats like New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio are pressing for Democratic control of the closely divided, 63-seat Senate.

“We will elect a Democratic progressive Senate that’s focused on changing people’s lives at their roots,” de Blasio said at a campaign rally last week in Manhattan.

The Senate campaigns have offered stark contrasts as recent polls showed Republicans leading in the swing races.


Republicans are opposed to a measure in a 10-point Women’s Equality Act that would strengthen abortion rights, saying it would allow for more abortions. They’ve blasted Democrats for holding up the other pieces of the act, which includes stronger workplace protections for women.

“New York is already the abortion capital of the world,” a radio ad from the pro-life Chiaroscuro PAC states. “Do we really need more abortions at nine months?”

Democrats have contended that the measure would simply codify Roe vs. Wade into state law and wouldn’t lead to more abortions.

“New Yorkers understand and trust women with their own health care,” Tracey Brooks, president of Planned Parenthood Advocates of New York, said in a statement Sept. 24.

Party divides

The races also are about regional divides. Senate Democrats are mainly from New York City and its northern suburbs, while Republicans are largely from upstate and Long Island.

Republicans have charged that if Democrats win the Senate, New York City Democrats would likely control all branches of state government. Democrats hold a wide majority in the Assembly.

Democrats argue that Republicans have run the Senate for most of the last half century, but upstate — and working families — continue to struggle. Democrats want to increase the minimum wage from $8 an hour to at least $10.10 an hour and enact a statewide system of public funding of campaigns. Republicans have resisted both measures and have promoted a record of fiscal austerity.

Republicans have had a tenuous hold on the Senate after losing the majority in 2008. They won it back in 2010; lost it again in 2012, but kept power by sharing the majority with four Democrats. It takes 32 seats to win the majority.

Cuomo in May abandoned his close relationship with Senate Republicans. Instead, he sided with the union-backed Working Families Party to win its endorsement, pledging to work to oust Republicans from power in the November elections.

The Democratic governor has faced questions about how much he will help his own party because he’s benefited from the work with the Senate GOP, allowing him to tout his ability to reach across the aisle.

But Cuomo said he’ll aid Democrats, and the state party — funded by Cuomo’s campaign cash — will pump $1 million into tight contests.

“A lot of our campaign materials we’re doing we’re doing together to help Democratic candidates across the state,” Cuomo told reporters Wednesday. “And I’ll be campaigning” for them.

A new majority

For Republicans to have a majority, they would need to keep the current 30 seats they won in 2012, retain Democratic Sen. Simcha Felder of Brooklyn in their conference and win one seat.

There are four open seats, and 13 upstate senators are running unopposed — including Republican Sens. Joseph Robach, Michael Nozzolio, Thomas O’Mara and John Bonacic.

There are some other intriguing races. Democratic Sen. John Sampson, D-Brooklyn, and Sen. Thomas Libous, RBinghamton, are under federal indictment in separate incidents. Both are expected to win re-election: Sampson faces only third-party candidates; Libous, accused of lying to the FBI, faces Democrat Anndrea Starzak, the former town of Vestal supervisor.

Five Siena College polls in recent weeks showed Republicans with doubledigit leads in the most heavily watched races, including two on Long Island.

Republican Rich Funke had a 25 percentage- point lead, 57 percent to 32 percent, over Sen. Ted O’Brien, D-Irondequoit. Republican Sue Serino led Sen. Terry Gipson, D-Rhinebeck, Dutchess County, 52 percent to 40 percent. Republican George Amedore led Sen. Cecilia Tkaczyk, D-Duanesburg, Schenectady County, by 10 percentage points.

Republicans “have spent enough in these early races to change the karma and the perception,” said Bruce Gyory, an Albany-based Democratic consultant not affiliated with any campaign. “Does that mean the game is over? No. You don’t call a football game at halftime, but you always like being ahead.”

The parties, meanwhile, were spending heavily in another race: the open seat to succeed Sen. Greg Ball, R-Patterson, Putnam County.

Key Rochester race

O’Brien said he doesn’t believe he’s the underdog against Funke, who is well known for his 30-year-career as a TV reporter and anchor.

Two years ago, an early Siena poll showed O’Brien was losing, and he easily won his first term. He criticized Funke for not doing more public events with him.

“People know him as a TV personal-ity,” said O’Brien, 57. “They don’t know really where he is on the issues that are important to people here.”

Funke said there are a number of events planned with O’Brien, and he plans to participate in at least one television debate.

Funke, 65, said after spending decades at community events as a TV personality, he’s heard people’s concerns about the state’s future and wanted to try to improve it.

“You’ve got two options in life: Sit on the sidelines and complain about what’s going on in your state or jump in feet first and try to do something about it,” he said. “And that’s what I’ve elected to do.”

Hudson Valley races

Senate Republicans spent $350,000 on the GOP candidate in the race, Yorktown Councilman Terrence Murphy — the most on any of its candidates. Senate Democrats dropped $94,000 on its candidate, Justin Wagner. The district stretches across Westchester, Putnam and Dutchess counties.

Wagner, who narrowly lost to Ball in 2012, called Murphy a “nice guy, but fairly right wing.”

“I think the voters quite frankly are sick of politics as usual,” said Wagner, 33, a lawyer.

Murphy said Wagner is “as left as left comes,” saying the district wants a more conservative voice in Albany. Ball was recently named the most conservative senator in the state.

“I’ve been a pro-business candidate,” said Murphy, 48, a chiropractor. “We have the highest property taxes in the United States.”

In a neighboring race, Gipson is trying to win a second term in a traditionally Republican district that runs across Dutchess and Putnam counties.

Gipson has knocked Serino for his opposition to the abortion piece of the Women’s Equality Act and for voting for an energy tax increase as a Dutchess County legislator.

On Thursday, he knocked Serino for a radio interview in which she said more money for schools is an unfunded mandate she’d like to change.

“Once the public really begins to understand how unqualified my opponent is, they’ll begin to see that we’re the only clear choice,” said Gipson, 51.

Serino said Gipson has failed the district, saying it doesn’t get back enough school aid and is overlooked at the Capitol. She said she voted against the energy tax as a standalone piece of legislation, but voted for the county budget that included the tax to ensure that the county maintained services.

Voters “know that I have their back,” said Serino, 53. “I’m here to protect the taxpayer, and I don’t think we’ve had true representation for our community.”

Obama Achieves Milestone That Some Consider Symbolic of His Presidency

President Barack Obama reportedly played golf for the 200th time of his presidency on Sunday.

This significant golf outing took place at Fort Belvoir, Virginia. The president has been criticized frequently for playing the game amid national and global crises.
On Sunday a second U.S. Ebola diagnosis was reported.
In August, Obama came under fire for golfing shortly after speaking about the beheading of an American journalist by the Islamic State.
In 2008 Obama’s predecessor George W. Bush told Politico the reason why he stopped playing golf five years earlier: “I don’t want some mom whose son may have recently died to see the commander in chief playing golf. I feel I owe it to the families to be in solidarity as best as I can with them. And I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong signal.”
But last year Bush said Obama should not be criticized for playing golf.
Not everyone is as charitable, however.
“The president’s 200th trip to an oasis of fairways comes at a particularly turbulent time,” veteran White House correspondent Keith Koffler wrote on his website White House Dossier.
“The usual problems – an uncertain economy that may or may not be gaining its footing, stagnant wages, low work force participation, Iran on the cusp of a nuclear weapon, and soaring U.S. debt – are all present,” Koffler continued. “But as he strolls about the course today, Obama now also finds himself waging war with merciless (Islamic) terrorists raging across Iraq and Syria like a wildfire, confronting the 21st century version of the Bubonic Plague, and facing the revived threat of a major terrorist attack.”
Even at this rate of golfing (which averages about 33 games a year), Obama won’t break any presidential records for the frequency of his outings.
President Dwight Eisenhower golfed 800 times over his eight years in office, while President Woodrow Wilson golfed 1,600 times in eight years, according to Don Van Natta Jr.’s book on presidential golfing, “First Off the Tee.” http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2014/10/12/obama-achieves-milestone-that-some-consider-symbolic-of-his-presidency/

TBS: Austrian teens girls have tired of Jihad vacation

Austrian teens

Tired of their Middle East vacation of beatings, sexual depravity by Muslim animals, and honor killings, two pregnant teens are ready to return to the real-world War on Women.

It seems the two now feel duped by their Muslim boyfriends-turned-husbands who convinced them to go to Syria so they could learn about the true “peace” of Islam by joining the jihad.

The girls now say it was a “mistake.” What? Like wearing white after Labor Day? Fighting against all you have been taught to believe to go fight jihad against the civilized world is a wee bit more than a mistake…jus’ sayin’! It’s not like these girls were not aware of what pigs {apologies to pigs} these men are:

DALLAS: Dedicated Ebola Hospitals Sought After Nurse’s Infection

U.S. and local health officials want to set up dedicated hospitals in each state for Ebola patients, part of a new emphasis on safety for health-care workers after a nurse caring for an infected patient in Dallas tested positive for the virus.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is also reconsidering its existing infection control protocols and will boost health-worker training with a series of calls and online seminars, officials said today.
“We’d like to have at least one hospital in every state that does feel they could manage a patient from start to finish,” said Abbigail Tumpey, the CDC official in charge of the education outreach. So far, the new system is only in the discussion stage, and one issue is that there are currently only four U.S. hospitals with top-level bio-containment units. http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2014-10-13/ebola-monitoring-to-include-medical-staff-after-infection.html
