Criticism Mounts for CDC Director Thomas Frieden

As the Ebola crises worsens and it becomes clear that the Obama administration and the Centers for Disease Control are operating on incomplete or even false information, Obama’s appointed CDC director is finding mounting criticism of his handling of the crisis.

CDC director Dr. Thomas Frieden was appointed to his position by President Obama in 2009 and now, as the face of the Obama administration’s flawed response to this developing Ebola situation, he faces the toughest task in his long, administrative career.

It is a career that began in New York City in 2002 when Frieden was appointed as the City Health Commissioner. There Frieden was responsible for the political attack on “trans fats,” a campaign that opened the door for mayor Bloomberg’s failed attempt to ban the sale of large sodas and other such nanny state “health” policies….

MEDIA BIAS ALERT: Deadspin Pushes False Story Saying Colorado GOP Sen. Candidate Cory Gardner Lied About School Football Career

The left was super, super excited to find out that Deaspin.com discovered that Cory Gardner, the Republican candidate for senate in Colorado, lied about playing football for his high school football team in the 1980s. The left went wild pushing the Deadspin.com story until… well, until the Deadspin story turned out to be false in every way.

Gardner is currently a Congressman in the Centennial State but he decided to run against incumbent Colorado Senator Mark Udall—a Democrat. At first the left didn’t worry over much about Gardner because they assumed he couldn’t beat the long time incumbent Democrat. But recently Gardner has surged ahead of Udall in the polls, seriously worrying the left…

NPR-Celebrated Muslim Reporter in Ferguson Has Record as Child Molester

A new report shows that a man who has become celebrated by National Public Radio and others for his reporting during the recent unrest in Ferguson, Missouri also has a record as a child molester.

Mustafa Hussein is a Muslim convert and a volunteer reporter for ArgusNews, a Saint Louis-based activist website that has lately dedicated itself almost wholly to reporting on the Ferguson riots.

Hussein reportedly received 1.3 million views of his coverage in just one night earlier this year….

Crony Union Members Get Million Dollar Pensions for One Day of Teaching

In another example of why government unions should all be eliminated, two union operatives in the Illinois school system have been the happy recipients of million-dollar pensions—courtesy of the taxpayers—for teaching classes for only a single day.

Back in 2011 I wrote of union operatives Steven Preckwinkle and David Piccioli at the Illinois teachers union who both “taught” only one day in the Illinois school system and then went on to be union operatives for the rest of their careers that were supposedly in “education.” Yet despite their lack of actually educating anyone, both were still demanding to get huge, generous pensions for being “teachers.”…

Houston, TX: City Officials Demand Local Ministers Turn Over Sermons to Screen for ‘Hate Speech’

In Houston, Texas, liberals are again at the forefront of violating the Constitution to aide their special interest groups by oppressing both freedom of speech and freedom of religion.

City officials of the left-wing city have obtained a subpoena demanding that local ministers and pastors supply their sermons to the city ahead of time so that officials can screen them for “hate speech” against gays and most especially words against the openly gay mayor of Houston, Annise Parker.

The city also says that those ministers who refuse to turn in their sermons for approval by city officials, they will be held in contempt of court.

So much for all those silly Constitutional rights, and stuff, eh?

But the city council is getting push back and rightfully so…..

USA Falls to 12th Place in World Economic Freedom

In the year 2000 the USA ranked second on the Economic Freedom of the World report. Now, in 2014, the USA has fallen to 12th place.

That’s right, the country founded on capitalism and economic freedom has been steadily losing ground among the most free nations as our system declines into welfare dependency, government sponsored crony capitalism (which isn’t capitalism at all but fascism), and big government, regulatory strangulation.

The CATO Institute puts out its annual report measuring the economic freedom of the nations of the world and this year the leader in global economic freedom is Hong Kong. The rest of the top ten are as follows: Singapore; New Zealand; Switzerland; Mauritius; United Arab Emirates; Canada; Australia; Jordan; and, tied for 10th is Chile and Finland.

And what of the United States?…

ProPublica Notes Blacks Killed More by Police, But Doesn’t Note They Commit More Crimes

A recent report by ProPublica finds that young black males are 21 time more likely to be shot and killed by police than are others. But the report does not take note that young black men are also disproportionately involved in crime.

The ProPublica report found that of the “1,217 deadly police shootings from 2010 to 2012 captured in the federal data show that blacks, age 15 to 19, were killed at a rate of 31.i7 per million, while just 1.47 per million white males in that age range died at the hands of police.”

ProPubica goes on to say that the statistics it uncovered supports the claim from African Americans that they are unfairly targeted by police. “Blacks are being killed at disturbing rates when set against the rest of the American population,” the news site contends….

Foolish Brits Bow to Muslims, May Stop Teaching ‘British Values’

Britain’s Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg, recently said that teaching British values to kids in British schools is bad because it might upset the Muslims that have been invading the Isles. This, folks, is how you commit suicide. As the UK Independent reported on Thursday:

Mr Clegg is worried that some Muslims are offended because their religion is often singled out when ministers talk about “British values”. He believes that David Cameron and Michael Gove, the Education Secretary, may unwittingly anger Muslim community leaders the Government needs to tackle extremism and could fuel Islampohobia among the British public.
This is just insensible… unless it is being said by someone that hates—truly, viscerally hates—his own country and culture…. http://www.publiusforum.com/2014/10/11/foolish-brits-bow-muslims-may-stop-teaching-british-values/

Historical Ignorance: Anti-Gun TV President Claims Slavery is ‘In The Constitution’

The faux President of the United States on the ABC TV show Scandal gave one of those typically left-wing TV speeches that is more like an uninformed screed meant to push a leftist agenda than truthful commentary. In this case the actor pretending to be president scorned the Second Amendment and then said incorrectly that slavery was enshrined in the U.S. Constitution.

On the TV show, “President” Fitzgerald Grant (Tony Goldwyn) noted that the Second Amendment was “set in stone” in the Constitution, then as an aside said, “So was slavery, by the way.”

No it wasn’t… by the way. It is a lie the left tells….

How Much Did Illinois Spend on Misspelled No Littering Signs?

Illinois is in such bad shape it can’t even produce no littering signs that are properly spelled, it appears.

Friend to the blog John Ruberry of the wonderful MarathonPundit blog was on a trip through the state when he spotted a no littering sign that read: “Please Don,t Liter.”

Apparently the workers in the sign department in the State of Illinois don’t know the difference between a coma and an apostrophe, nor, apparently, what a contraction is. And spelling? What is with this ‘liter’ business? Are Illinois sign makers saying we should not use the metric system here?
