Bio Weapons Expert: Ebola Outbreak Is A Bio Weapon Release

Conspiracy Nut or Clear Thinking?
"We are all puppets, Laurie.  I'm just the puppet 
who can see the strings."
Dr, Jon Osterman
Watchmen  (1986)

Myself as well as many other people have long suspected that AIDS and Ebola might have been U.S. developed by the military as bio-weapons which then accidentally escaped from government labs.

In the interview below Alex Jones talks with bio-weapons experts Professor Francis A. Boyle about the current Ebola outbreak and what he thinks is actually going on.

Boyle drafted the U.S. domestic implementing legislation for the Biological Weapons Convention, known as the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989, that was approved unanimously by both Houses of the U.S. Congress and signed into law by President George H.W. Bush.

Boyle is a professor of international law at the University of Illinois College of Law.

Three Nail-Biter House Races

Close Races to Watch

Less than two weeks before Election Day, the parties don’t agree on much — except these House races will be decided by the slimmest of margins.

Candidates in these contests are expected to have a long wait on the evening of Nov. 4. In fact, some of these races will be so close that the winner might not be known for days — even weeks — after Election Day.

New York’s 1st District

(Roll Call)  -  Democratic Rep. Timothy H. Bishop’s Long Island-based district is a tough seat for Democrats  in a good year for the party. Obama carried it by a 1-point margin last cycle.

This cycle, the six-term Democrat has been plagued by an ethical dust-up in which he’s been accused of helping a constituent obtain firework permits for his son’s bar mitzvah in exchange for a campaign donation. The justice department closed its investigation into the incident in September without filing any charges.

But Bishop has squeaked back into office by the skin of his teeth before, too, including in 2010 when he won re-election by less than 1 point.

This time around, Republicans say their recruit, State Senator Lee Zeldin, is the best they’ve had in a few cycles. And outside groups from both sides of the aisle are up on air here.

Yet both sides, while confident in their chances, say the margin will be slim.

New Hampshire’s 1st District

For the third time,  Rep. Carol Shea-Porter and former Rep. Frank Guinta, R-N.H., will face each other. Guinta defeated her in 2010. Shea-Porter, a Democrat, ousted him two years later.

And on Nov. 4, they meet again. They can thank New Hampshire’s volatile political climate for the see-saw cycles. But that makes the Democrat especially vulnerable this cycle, when Obama is deeply unpopular.

The 1st District, located in the eastern half of the state, is also the more friendly for Republicans, compared to the Granite State’s other district. Last cycle, Obama carried the 1st District by a 1-point margin, while Shea-Porter defeated Guinta with less than 50 percent of the vote. In fact, some operatives say Shea-Porter won thanks to presidential year turnout, and a libertarian candidate that siphoned off more than 4 percent of the vote.

This cycle, Democrats in New England said Shea-Porter will get a boost from a gubernatorial and Senate race topping the ticket. But given the district’s partisan breakdown, operatives say this one will come down to the wire.


Election results, New Hampshire's 1st district, November 6, 2012
DemocraticCarol Shea-Porter171,65049.75%
RepublicanFrank Guinta (incumbent)158,65945.99%
LibertarianBrendan Kelly14,5214.21%
No PartyScattering1920.06%
Illinois’ 10th District

This district located north of Chicagoland votes for Democrats by double digits in presidential races. But down the ballot, voters have shown a propensity to elect moderate Republicans to Congress.

Now-Sen. Mark S. Kirk, R-Ill., represented the district for five terms until he ran statewide in 2010.

This cycle, freshman Rep. Brad Schneider, D-Ill., faces former Rep. Bob Dold, the Republican he ousted by a 1-point margin in 2012. Both have raised significant sums of money and are  aided by outside groups.

With a competitive gubernatorial contest topping the ticket, operatives say this race will again be a squeaker.

It has to be race.

Saturday Sultress - Sofía Vergara

Sofía Vergara is a Colombian actress, comedian, television hostess, and model.
Vergara was widely known for co-hosting two television shows for Spanish-language television network Univisión in the late 1990s. 
Vergara was discovered by a photographer while walking on a Colombian beach and was soon presented with offers of modeling and television work. Vergara was "apprehensive about doing her first television commercial—until her Catholic schoolteachers gave her their personal permission to take the assignment." Vergara made her first appearance as a performer at the age of 17 in a Pepsi commercial that was widely broadcast in Latin America.
Her first notable acting job in English was in the 2003 film Chasing Papi. Subsequently, she appeared in other films, including Four Brothers (2005) and two Tyler Perry films - Meet the Browns (2008) and Madea Goes to Jail (2009), receiving an ALMA Award nomination for the latter.
 Vergara's success on television has earned her roles in recent films The Smurfs (2011), New Year's Eve (2011), Happy Feet Two (2011), The Three Stooges (2012), Escape From Planet Earth (2013), and Machete Kills (2013). In 2012 and 2013, she was the top-earning actress on US television.
Vergara stars on the ABC series Modern Family as Gloria Delgado-Pritchett, for which she has been nominated for four Golden Globe Awards, four Primetime Emmy Awards, and seven Screen Actors Guild Awards.

Neighbors help Islamic State make millions each month

Welcome to the Giant Clusterfuck
 "When these little African countries get into a dispute, they tend to just murder everybody. They live for the opportunity to settle scores... and they have a lot of scores to settle."

(Editor  -  Though the movie is about Africa, the quote above really says it all about the extreme tribal nature of the Middle East.  Knowing this our politicians just can't wait to toss our boys into this meat grinder of hate where everyone is screwing everyone 24-7. While I am not an isolationist there are times you need to stand back and let the crazies kill each other off.)

The L.A. Times reports Islamic State still generates tens of millions of dollars in income every month.

In Iraq, U.S. financial officials say, dozens of local bank branches remain free to transfer money in and out of cities and towns controlled by the militants, giving them some access to financial systems.

David S. Cohen, the Treasury undersecretary for terrorism and financial intelligence, said Islamic State has "amassed wealth at an unprecedented pace," including taking in at least $20 million in ransom payoffs this year.

With the exception of some state-sponsored groups, Islamic State is "probably the best funded terrorist organization we have confronted," he said, and stopping it will take time reports the Los Angeles Times.

"We have no silver bullet, no secret weapon to empty ISIL's coffers overnight," Cohen said, using a common acronym for Islamic State. "This will be a sustained fight and we are in the early stages."

Speaking at the nonpartisan Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, Cohen said Islamic State raises tens of millions of dollars a month through the sale of stolen oil, ransoms for kidnapping victims, theft and extortion in areas it controls and, to a lesser extent, donations from donors and financiers in Persian Gulf nations.

Although precise figures are impossible to obtain, U.S. investigators estimated that Islamic State earned about $1 million a day from oil sales beginning in mid-June, when the group's military blitz through western Iraq vastly expanded its territory and its access to oil fields and refineries.

In addition to selling oil and refined petroleum products directly to middlemen and smugglers in Turkey, Islamic State has sold oil to Kurds in Iraq for resale in Turkey, Cohen said. "And in a further indication of the Assad regime's depravity, it seems the Syrian government has made an arrangement to purchase oil from ISIL," he said.

Charles Djou locked in a dead-even tie in Hawaii

An ex-GOP Congressman, Major Charles Djou served with
the 10th Mountain 
Division in Afghanistan.

Will the GOP wave hit Hawaii?

HONOLULU (Hawaii News Now)  - Our latest Hawaii News Now/Star Advertiser poll in the campaign to represent urban Oahu in Congress suggests the vote could go either way.

In the race between Charles Djou and Mark Takai,volunteers and the candidates will crank up efforts to get out the vote with their campaigns in a dead heat. It's tied at 47 percent according to our new Hawaii poll.

Mark Takai said this about the results, "As in the primary we were behind until the very end and in fact 5 days before we were tied, so this is nothing new for us."

2nd Congressional District of Hawaii
takes in most of the islands of the state.

Charles Djou responded, "The fact that we're in a position to win this campaign just shows the level of excitement the people of Hawaii have here in our race and here in our campaign."

Djou has made the case that the State should send one member of its congressional delegation into the majority with seniority.

Hawaii News Now political analyst Colin Moore said, "It seems to have resonated because Djou is polling very well. They like Djou personally. He has very high favorability."

60 percent polled had a favorable opinion of Djou. That's a virtual tie with Takai's 63 percent. Djou had double the number of unfavorable views, but more voters have never heard of the Democrats' nominee.

Takai said he would keep working hard to get his message out, explaining, "We want to make sure that people understand this is an important race. We stand for Democratic values and we believe we best represent the values of Hawaii."

Djou said, "Ultimately it doesn't matter to me if you're a Republican, Democrat, or Conservative or Liberal. My ideology and philosophy is to get things done and I think the overwhelming majority of people in Hawaii, that's their philosophy."

Thanks to The Libertarian Republican.

CIA backed army near defeat in Aleppo

A CIA/Turkish Army Trapped

  • Obama's unconstitutional war supporting the Syrian "moderates" is going badly.
  • Question  -  Is ISIS simply an excuse for Obama to go into Syria in support of the "moderate" rebels the CIA, Turkey and Saudi Arabia have been arming for years?

— Rebels opposed to President Bashar Assad called Friday for help from the U.S.-led coalition fighting the Islamic State, saying the Syrian military is close to encircling the city of Aleppo and cutting off rebel supply routes to Turkey.

In a statement, the Syrian Opposition Coalition, once hailed by the United States as the only legitimate representative of the Syrian people, called for U.S. assistance, warning of dire results if Assad’s forces are able to seize the town of Handarat, just north of the Aleppo city limits. That would cut the Castello road, which is the only route in and out of the rebel-held eastern portion of Aleppo, essentially trapping the rebel forces.
Rebel activists say the anti-Assad forces are desperately summoning reinforcements to Handarat.Rebel activists say the anti-Assad forces are desperately summoning reinforcements to Handarat.
“This is the most important battle in Syria now, because if the regime succeeds he will be able to isolate Aleppo and take the whole north of Syria,” said Muhammad Badr Eddin, an activist based in Mare, a town about 20 miles north of Aleppo reports McClatchy News.

A spokeswoman for Legion 5, an umbrella group of rebel units that receive American support through a covert CIA program, said that rebels are using TOW anti-tank missiles in their battle to slow the government advance. The spokeswoman, who identified herself only by the nom de guerre Um Mahmoud, or Mahmoud’s mother, said combat was often hand to hand and that the rebels would “fight to the bitter end.”

Um Mahmoud also denounced a claim by another rebel figure, Gen. Abduljabbar al Akidi, the former head of the opposition Aleppo military council, that the rebels were sending 1,500 troops to Kobani to fight. Gen. al Akidi made the claim Thursday to Al Jazeera, the Arabic-language satellite TV channel.

Um Mahmoud said the situation was far too dire in Aleppo for the rebels to spare that many fighters. Then, in a reminder of the rivalries that have fractured the rebel movement, she questioned al Akidi’s standing, saying he had “only 20 troops under his command” and “can’t speak in the name of different” rebel groups, who she said oppose diverting resources to Kobani.

The rebel desperation was heightened by the government’s capture Thursday of the strategic town of Morak, on the highway that links Aleppo with Damascus. The town, in the northern part of Hama province, had been besieged by government forces for 10 months. Both rebels and the state-owned Syrian Arab News Agency reported that government forces had captured the town.R.
Rebel strategists said the loss of Morak came after Syrian aircraft dropped more than 40 so-called “barrel bombs” on the town. Syrian infantry then captured a key hilltop and advanced into the city center.

With the town now in government hands, they said, pro-Assad forces are in a position to break the rebel siege of Wadi al Dief, the largest government military base in northern Syria.

Insane Denmark offers "counseling" for returning Islamist fighters

And the importation of Muslims goes on and on.

 The rush of morning shoppers parted to make way for Talha, a lanky 21-year-old in desert camouflage and a long, religious beard. He strode through the local mall with a fighter’s gait picked up on the battlefields of Syria. Streams of young Muslim men greeted him like a returning king.
As-salamu alaykum.   Wa alaikum assalaam.
In other countries, Talha — one of hundreds of young jihadists from the West who has fought in Syria and Iraq — might be barred from return or thrown in jail. But in Denmark, a country that has spawned more foreign fighters per capita than almost anywhere else, the port city of Aarhus is taking a novel approach by rolling out a welcome mat.

That should work.
In Denmark, not one returned fighter has been locked up. Instead, taking the view that discrimination at home is as criminal as Islamic State recruiting, officials here are providing free psychological counseling while finding returnees jobs and spots in schools and universities. 
For better or worse, this city’s answer has left the likes of Talha wandering freely on the streets. The son of moderate Muslim immigrants from the Middle East, he became radicalized and fought with an Islamist brigade in Syria for nine months before returning home last October. Back on Danish soil, he still dreams of one day living in a Middle Eastern caliphate. He rejects the Islamic State’s beheading of foreign hostages but defends its summary executions of Iraqi and Syrian soldiers.

“I know how some people think. They are afraid of us, the ones coming back,” says Talha, a name he adopted to protect his identity because he never told his father he went to fight. “Look, we are really not dangerous.”

“They are being much too soft [in Aarhus], and they fail to see the problem,” said Marie Krarup, an influential member of Parliament from the Danish People’s Party, the country’s third-largest political force. “The problem is Islam. Islam itself is radical. You cannot integrate a great number of Muslims into a Christian country.”

1 in 3 Americans have an FBI file - Welcome to the Police State

Notes From The Police State
  • Zero-tolerance attitude toward small crimes has led authorities to make more than a quarter of a billion arrests.

The sickening transformation of these United States into an authoritarian police state with an incarceration rate that would make Joseph Stalin blush, has been a key theme of my writing since well before the launch of Liberty Blitzkrieg. 
One of the posts that shocked and disturbed readers most, was published a little over a year ago titled: American Police Make an Arrest Every 2 Seconds in 2012. In the event you never read it, I suggest taking a look before tackling the rest of this piece.
Fast forward to fall 2014, and the Wall Street Journal has a powerful article about how children in schools systems across the U.S. are being arrested or turned over to police custody for doing things that children have always done since the beginning of time. Things such as wearing too much perfume, sharing a classmates’ chicken nuggets, throwing an eraser or chewing gum.

As a result of our insane societal obsession with authority and disproportionate punishment, the WSJ reports that nearly one out of every three American adults are on file in the FBI’s master criminal database.

A generation ago, schoolchildren caught fighting in the corridors, sassing a teacher or skipping class might have ended up in detention. Today, there’s a good chance they will end up in police custody.

In Texas, a student got a misdemeanor ticket for wearing too much perfume. In Wisconsin, a teen was charged with theft after sharing the chicken nuggets from a classmate’s meal—the classmate was on lunch assistance and sharing it meant the teen had violated the law, authorities said. In Florida, a student conducted a science experiment before the authorization of her teacher; when it went awry she received a felony weapons charge.

Over the past 20 years, prompted by changing police tactics and a zero-tolerance attitude toward small crimes, authorities have made more than a quarter of a billion arrests, the Federal Bureau of Investigation estimates. Nearly one out of every three American adults are on file in the FBI’s master criminal database.

Conservatives are in collapse as election nears

UKIP leader Nigel Farage

A Conservative Party in Collapse

  • The UK Conservative Party is no longer "Conservative".  Like the American GOP it has eagerly embraced Big Government and endless legal and illegal immigration.  An angry people have risen up to back UKIP.
  • Conservative PM has pledged to 'throw the kitchen sink' at attempt to hold the seat.
  • The latest poll suggests that UKIP is drawing its support from across the political spectrum. Some 39 per cent of people who voted Conservative in 2010 now plan to vote UKIP, as do 39 per cent of Lib Dems and 30 per cent of Labour voters.

Ukip has taken a commanding 13-point lead in the crunch Rochester by-election, according to a shock poll last night.

The ComRes survey suggests former Tory MP Mark Reckless is on course to win next month’s by-election in Kent, just weeks after defecting to Ukip.

The survey of 1,500 voters puts Ukip on 43 per cent, well ahead of the Conservatives on 30 per cent.

Labour, which came second in the seat in 2010, is trailing on 21 per cent, with the Liberal Democrats and Greens both languishing on 3 per cent.

The Birth of a New Party
Down with government by the Elite whores.
Say yes to government of the people, by the people and for the people.

The poll suggests Ukip is consolidating its grip on the seat, despite a massive push by the Tories. The last opinion poll in the constituency, on October 5, put the Conservatives nine points behind.

The development is a serious setback to David Cameron, who has pledged to ‘throw the kitchen sink’ at the attempt to hold the seat, in a bid to halt the Ukip surge.

Ominously for the Prime Minister, the latest poll found that 62 per cent of voters view the November 20 by-election as a ‘good opportunity to show David Cameron and the Conservatives how unhappy I am with their Government’.

The Prime Minister was rocked earlier this month by the Clacton by-election, where Tory defector Douglas Carswell crushed his former party to become Ukip’s first elected MP.

A second defeat by Ukip would be a body blow to Mr Cameron just six months away from the General Election.

Ukip leader Nigel Farage is predicting that more MPs will defect to the anti-EU party if Mr Reckless wins, sparking further debilitating by-elections.

Some Tories have even warned that defeat could lead to a challenge against Mr Cameron’s leadership.
