Let's all hope Obama's new Ebola Czar, Ron Klain, stayed at a Holiday Inn last night.

2001 video reveals Ron Klain's Ebola training background.... Last week, President Barack Obama made a largely symbolic move by appointing his new "Ebola Czar." Since he had to look like he was doing something, he did. The man he chose is Ron Klain - someone who knows nothing about medicine or science. ... continue reading

CNN Columnist: Americans don't care about Ebola in Africa, because they're racists

Obviously.  Ah, CNN.  At one time, Ted Turner's news network was the only one of its kind. These days, it's near the bottom of a rather large pack, and has become the most banal example of an entire genre.  When your claim to fame is "doing slightly better than MSNBC" you know things are bad. ... continue reading

CDC director: No travel ban, because it would harm African economies

Foreign cash trumps American lives  Yesterday, Representative Tim Murphy (R-PA) had a chance to question CDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden during his Congressional testimony. If you thought Frieden would use the occasion to reassure the American public with regards to his intentions and capabilities, you ... continue reading

Obama STILL refuses to consider Ebola travel ban - and his reason is weapons grade idiocy

Taking it seriously This week, a new Washington Post/ABC News poll was released.  It showed that 64% of the American people don't believe the government is doing enough to prevent the spread of Ebola in the United States. It also showed that 67% want to restrict or bar persons who have travelled to ... continue reading

CDC told Ebola nurse to get on a plane, even though she called to report her fever

Taking it seriously. Ever since the first reports that Thomas Duncan had tested positive for Ebola back on Spetember 30th, the U.S. government has delivered one constant, forceful, message.  They are taking this very seriously, they are capable of handling the situation, and they have protocols in place to ... continue reading

Apparently it takes Ebola to cancel an Obama fundraiser - so is it politics or genuine concern?

You get precisely one - very easy - guess.  Barack Obama didn't cancel his Las Vegas fundraisers the day after Benghazi. Barack Obama didn't cancel fundraisers due to the border crisis. Barack Obama hasn't canceled fundraisers as the ISIS debacle continues to unfold. Now, he's done the ... continue reading

Jon Stewart absolutely destroys Dems over their epic money and fundraising hypocrisy

'All hope is lost' - The Democrats Previously, we've discussed Obama's belief that the GOP is the 'party of billionaires.'  He made that proclamation while on his way to attend a $32,000.00-per-plate fundraiser at the home of a billionaire real estate mogul named - again, not a joke -"Rich ... continue reading

Enjoy Australia's tough-as-nails campaign to squash illegal immigration

'You will not make Australia home' Australia may be sitting out in the middle of the ocean, but that doesn't mean they don't have to deal with illegal immigration.  They might not have a corrupt, train wreck of a country like Mexico nestled against their southern border but, in some ways, they have a bigger ... continue reading

A desperate Wendy Davis stages super-awkward presser featuring 'people she knows in wheelchairs.'

Just....  Wow.  Maybe you know Texas uber-liberal Wendy Davis from her infamous 11-hour filibuster in support of late-term abortion. Perhaps you remember her pro-abortion allies screaming "hail Satan" at the state capital. Then again, it's possible that you're new to the political scene and you only ... continue reading

Sad news for crazy people everywhere: MSNBC goes 'Forward' into the ratings abyss

As usual, leftist programming can't draw an audience. If MSNBC were a human being, it would be standing on a crate in Central Park wearing a "the end is nigh" sandwich board while screaming about how "they" hid a transmitter in its fillings. As pedestrians walked by it would assail them with nonsense shouted ... continue reading

'Why do people think I ended that war?' ...Enjoy one of the greatest Obama videos ever.

He ended the war before he didn't.  If you've been paying attention, you know that - for years - Obama and the Democrats were eager to tell anyone who'd listen that they had a bold plan to "end the war in Iraq." Once it was over, they rarely missed a chance to make sure you knew that they bore sole ... continue reading

NBC wanted a comedian to host Meet The Press. Settled for Chuck Todd.

Comfortably in last place. There was a time, long, long, ago, when Meet the Press was the gold standard for Sunday morning news shows.  Tim Russert was viewed as a tough, take-no-prisoners interviewer and he delivered weekly grillings that made every politician - regardless of party - squirm. Unfortunately, ... continue reading

Anti-coal Obama supporter Alison Lundergan Grimes won't say if she's ever voted for Obama

Excruciating. Embarrassing. Terrible.  At one point, it actually looked like Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes might actually dethrone Mitch McConnell in Kentucky. Lately, despite her best efforts to position herself as some kind of anti-Obama Dem, that's looking less and less likely. Most polling now ... continue reading

Chris Matthews: Obama needs to stop pandering to ethnic groups

But...but...pandering is all he knows!  The Tea Party is racist. The phrase "food stamps" is a racist "dog whistle." Most opposition to Obama is fueled by deep seeded racism. If you don't like ObamaCare, it's obviously because you're a racist. The GOP speaks in "racial code" These are all firmly held beliefs ... continue reading

Obama says GOP is the party of billionaires - attends $32,000-per-plate fundraiser

....Hosted by a billionaire.  If you're one of the unfortunate souls whose inbox is clogged with daily emails from political parties, you're used to the begging. Usually, they go something like 'if you don't send us five bucks, evil politician X will destroy the future of America!"  Sometimes you get ... continue reading

CNBC: Obama's approval rating on the economy plummets to new lows

Ugly. If, in the last few weeks, if you've watched a liberal talking head discuss the midterms, the odds are you heard them say that Obama's skillful handling of the economy will salvage the Democrats' 2014 hopes. "Only" 79%, they say, view the economy as "fair or poor" these days! While they'll probably admit ... continue reading
