If Ebola-treating medical personnel won’t self-quarantine, they must be quarantined anyway.
This passage from Hot Air sums up the current administration-friendly rhetoric over Ebola and quarantines nicely. Short version: the nurse who went overseas to treat Ebola patients, came back, had a fever, got isolated while they tested her, was released to Maine, and announced that she would be the judge of her own quarantining has just been told by Maine officials that no, they will be the judges. In other words, it’s only going | Read More »
Voter Fraud in Maryland? Machines Change Republican Votes to Democratic
Voter ID laws are one important facet of ensuring the right to vote is protected, but it’s hardly the only aspect of that fight to which we need to pay attention. Ensuring that our ballots are being counted properly is another vital front in the battle, and the state of Maryland is reminding us of its importance. There are reports across the state of voting | Read More »

Mitch McConnell is a Modern Day Sir John French
Almost exactly 100 years ago (which is to say, longer ago than anything Ezra Klein cares about), British general Sir John French, Commander in Chief of the British Expeditionary Force (BEF) in World War I, was responsible for one of the most significant military failures of leadership in modern history. His failure is, with remarkable parallels, playing out again on the American political stage at | Read More »
Give These People As Much Birth Control As Possible
NARAL has produced perhaps the stupidest radio ad ever. The advertisement starts with a guy who can’t find condoms anywhere. Why? Because the Republican Senate candidate, Rep. Cory Gardner (R-CO) 73%, single handedly banned birth control. So now it is up to the guys to take responsibility for birth control. The ad goes on to claim Gardner is “anti-science” among other things. | Read More »
Obama: high risk for Ebola equals freedom; low risk equals quarantine
If the situation were not so serious, one would be tempted to let this bit of idiocy go. But it is and I won’t. When the CDC released its guidelines for dealing with the “heroes” who are working to stem the Ebola epidemic in West Africa, it created these parameters: As Obama promised yesterday: President Obama on Tuesday called the new guidelines “sensible, based in science” | Read More »
Thomas Perez, the “Disparate Impact” Crusader
The idea of “disparate impact” is an abomination that has taken root in the business world and is being pushed into other sectors as well, such as housing and labor. This idea holds that “a defendant can be held liable for discrimination for a race-neutral policy that statistically disadvantages a specific minority group even if that negative “impact” was neither foreseen nor intended. In such | Read More »
“Voter Suppression” Street Theater the Media Should Not Take Seriously
40,000 voter registration forms have gone missing. Those voters, who Democrats have desperately tried to register to vote, will be unable to cast ballots on election day. At least that is the line being pushed by leftwing activists. But it is simply not true. Democrats want black voters to believe Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp has denied 40,000 voters the right to vote in | Read More »
Anti-Semitism at The Met: Tony Lo Bianco Speaks Out
In 1985, four hijackers from the Palestinian Liberation Front boarded the Achille Lauro cruise ship with plans to murder Israeli soldiers when the ship reached it’s destination in Ashdod, Israel. When their plans went awry, they instead held everyone on board hostage and demanded the release of 50 Palestinians who were in Israeli jails. While the terrorists ultimately failed in their mission, they did murder | Read More »
Jason Carter BREAKING THE LAW
No, we won’t get into that time he was arrested (!!). No, Jason Carter is now breaking the law. He has a Florida tag on his bus. So he’d rather cover it up than have the Florida tag be seen. You can’t do that!
Still More Gagging On The Donkey
Image credit: shutterstock.com During the 2004 election, President George W. Bush increased his share of the black vote. He did so in part by questioning black voters’ support for Democrats at Democrat strongholds such as the Urban League’s annual convention, where he quoted Charlie Gaines: Blacks are gagging on the donkey but not yet ready to swallow the elephant. A new video | Read More »

Jason Carter is Outsourcing
Jason Carter is on his bus tour as the Democrats continue to pound Republican David Perdue on outsourcing. A sharp eye caught this. Jason Carter outsourced his bus demands to Florida. That’s a Florida license plate on his bus driving through Georgia.
New Hampshire, Vermont: look, all those states look alike to Elizabeth Warren.
You really don’t expect Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) 0% to care about New Hampshire, can you? The Senator can barely muster up enough energy to care about Massachusetts. So it’s not really surprising to hear that the woman apparently can’t be bothered to remember which state Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) 0% pretends to be from:
Ebola Czar Missing in Action
Via the NY Daily News: There was confusion Monday over the government’s response to the Ebola crisis — and mystery over what President Obama’s Ebola czar was doing to address it. As the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said mandatory quarantines are not necessary for medical workers returning from West Africa, a U.S. Army general said that he and all his troops returning | Read More »
CDC incompetence and dishonesty continue
If someone wanted to set off a public health panic in the United States they could do worse than hiring CDC Director Tom Frieden and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to set it in motion. If a year ago someone had told me that in 2014 we would be seriously concerned about the spread of a tropical disease, found only in a handful | Read More »
