No honor among the thieves
Luke and Jo Anne Livingston, former director and producer of our PolitiChicks studio show, have been working with Tea Party Patriots on a documentary about the influx of illegals across the U.S. Jo Anne just posted a statement about their findings on her Facebook page and she has given me permission to share it here. From Jo Anne:
“Just arriving home from two solid days of interviewing experts on this immigration crisis. Numbers USA executive director, Center for Immigration Studies, director, Rep Steve King, Rep Louis Gohmert ( Texas) who has spent several of the last weekends on the border TALKING TO THE IMMIGRANTS THEMSELVES! Luke spent 8 days on the border. We talked to a doctor about the diseases coming in unchecked by any medical personnel. Today I SAW the legislation trying to get pushed thru that says that Eric Holder will appoint judges to hear these cases and the bill states that IF they do not appear for their hearing, the judge has no authority to issue arrests warrants or fines. The judge can only set another hearing and another hearing and another hearing into infinity. YOU DON’T get that deal for failing to appear in court! Why would ANYONE WANT these people to come here? Because before the LAST election, the illegals were handed voter registrations and told they would be sent to states with NO ID check for voting. If they did not show up and vote the democratic ticket, they would be arrested and deported. I am NOT making this stuff up! We have turned over every rock investigating this stuff and have witness after witness after witness testifying to this to it. For the sake of PETE! Pay attention AMERICA!!!”
Arlin has it right this will bite us in the behind in a few years!
With the U.S. budget and financial issues being as dismal as they are, the Pentagon is preparing to cut billions of dollars from its budget, reducing military spending, forces and weapons program. The cuts, according to NBC will put American military forces to its lowest level prior to World War II.
The budget cuts will come at a price according to U.S. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel: “As a consequence of large budget cuts, our future force will assume additional risk in certain areas,” Hagel said, citing gaps in training and maintenance and a smaller force that would be stretched thin if major conflicts broke out in several places at once.
I thought we were already stretched pretty thin. Talk about a nation that sacrifices for the well-being of other nations. We give up so much that our own security is of greater risk. This can only place…

Ben Carson: Americans Should Prepare to Defend Against Aggressive Government
Re-Post from charismanews 4:00PM EDT 7/31/2014 by Deborah Hamilton
Dr. Ben Carson Dr. Ben Carson (ymaryland.org)
Americans should be prepared to defend themselves against an “overly aggressive government,” and the Constitution’s Second Amendment recognizes their right to do this very thing. So says pediatric neurosurgeon, best-selling author, conservative advocate and nationally known speaker Dr. Ben Carson, who is no stranger to standing up for liberty.
During a recent summit, Carson called the right to bear arms “vitally important” and said any efforts to confiscate weapons are efforts that should never be allowed in America. Many who agree with Carson on this and other issues are hoping he will make a direct foray into politics.
Regardless of whether that happens, Alex McFarland, who will be hosting Carson as a headline speaker at this year’s Truth for a New Generation (TNG) annual apologetics conference, says it is the job of all freedom-loving Americans to take the same stand as Carson in defending our God-given liberties.
“Today’s public debate is no longer over what policies best advance life and liberty; today’s debate is over whether life and liberty are even rights that should be protected. This is both appalling and frightening. Our nation’s Founding Fathers pledged their lives, fortunes and sacred honor for liberty,” McFarland said. “And throughout our history, men and women have literally laid down their lives for freedom. And now, by allowing an overarching and over-encroaching government to exert more and more control over our lives, some are now saying that freedom simply isn’t worth fighting for. I disagree. And thankfully, millions of other Americans also disagree.
“At Truth for a New Generation, speakers like Dr. Ben Carson will equip Christians to recognize that our life and liberty are gifts from God and that they are worth understanding, worth defending, and worth fighting for,” he concluded.

Federal health officials are warning travelers to avoid three West African countries where an Ebola outbreak is getting worse, a sign of the U.S. government’s growing concern about the virus.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) issued a “Level 3” Warning on Thursday, the agency’s most serious travel notice, telling people in the United States not to enter Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone unless absolutely necessary.
CDC Director Tom Frieden said the agency is “surging” its response to the outbreak on the ground in West Africa in addition to warning U.S. travelers about the risk.
“This is the biggest and most complex Ebola outbreak in history,” Frieden said in a statement. “Far too many lives have been lost already. It will take many months, and it won’t be easy, but Ebola can be stopped. We know what needs to be done.”
The CDC is not screening passengers traveling from the three countries at points of entry, it said, noting that Ebola is not contagious until symptoms appear. The virus has no treatment and a fatality rate of almost 100 percent.
The outbreak is believed to have begun in January, with initial cases reported for the first time in February.
The death toll rose to at least 729 on Thursday, even as additional cases brought the total number infected to more than 1,300, according to the World Health Organization.
Leaders in West Africa are taking extraordinary steps to contain the virus. Notably, Sierra Leone President Ernest Bai Koroma announced that he will use troops to quarantine infected areas. Koroma also canceled a planned trip to the United States, according to The New York Times.
Trade wars often lead to really bad wars!
Wake up people its almost too late to stop the spread!
Jihadists declare emirate in east Libya: “Benghazi has now become an Islamic emirate”
That Islamic emirate in Benghazi? Ansar al-Sharia didn’t build that. Barack Obama built that. “Islamists declare ‘Islamic emirate’ in east Libya,” Al Arabiya, July 31, 2014:
Libya’s Islamist militant group Ansar al-Sharia has said that it seized complete control of Benghazi late on Wednesday, declaring the city an “Islamic emirate,” the group’s representative said.
Ansar al-Sharia is blacklisted by the United States over its alleged role in an attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, eastern Libya.
An official representative for the armed group told a local radio channel that Benghazi is now under its control.
“Benghazi has now become an Islamic emirate,” said Mohammed al-Zahawi, the spokesman, to Radio Tawhid.
However, Khalifa Haftar, a retired, renegade former army general who earlier this year launched a self-declared campaign to clear the city of Islamist militants, denied the group’s claims.
“The national Libyan army is in control of Benghazi and only withdrew from certain positions for tactical reasons,” Haftar told Al Arabiya News Channel.
“The claim that Benghazi is under the control of militias is a lie,” he said.
Ansar al-Sharia’s declaration comes following two days of fighting in which Islamist fighters and allied militiamen overran an army base in the city.
Al Arabiya’s correspondent in Libya reported that Islamist groups had seized the headquarters of the Libyan army’s Special Forces in Benghazi late on Tuesday following heavy fighting.
Turkey’s Anadolu news agency quoted Talal bin Harir, a Benghazi Shura Council member, as saying that the Islamists were in control of the army base.
Three years after the fall of Muammar Qaddafi, the OPEC nation has failed to control former rebel militias who refuse to disband and threaten the unity of the country.
The extent of recent hostilities has increased Western worries that Libya is sliding toward becoming a failed state and may once again go to war.
Several foreign states have withdrawn their citizens and diplomats from the state.
It is now being reported that Patrick Sawyer, whose sister also died from Ebola, was allowed on two ASKY Airlines flights in Liberia while infected with the deadly virus, Ebola, which painfully kills 90% of its victims.
Patient Zero, Patrick Sawyer, had a layover in Ghana then changed planes in Togo and flew to an international travel hub of Lagos, located in Nigeria. Nigeria is also the site of an Ebola outbreak. “The dad-of-three died five days after arriving in the city”. His sister, with whom Sawyer had contact, died of Ebola. He should never have been allowed to board any plane.
A desperate search is on to find the hundreds of passengers who flew on the same jets as Sawyer. A total of 59 passengers and crew are estimated to have come into contact with Sawyer and effort is being made to track each individual down. There is an inherent problem with this “track down”. Presumably, some of the passengers connected to other flights, which is known to be the case. Let’s just say, for the sake of argument, that only 20 people, a low estimate given the nature of the airports that Sawyer was traveling in, were connecting to other flights, the spread of the virus would quickly expand beyond any possibility of containment because in less than a half a day, nearly a half a million people would be potentially exposed. Within a matter of a couple of hours, Sawyer’s infected fellow travelers would each have made contact with 200 other passengers and crew. Hours later, these flights would land and these people would go home to the friends, families and coworkers across several continents.
The fact is that the window for tracking down Sawyers initial point of contact with the traveling public, has closed. Patient Zero has tipped the very first dominoes in what could prove to be the worst epidemic in human history.
Not to Worry Says the U.S. Government
United States health officials say they are not worried because Ebola is transmitted through exposure to bodily fluids.
“…Witnesses say Sawyer, a 40-year-old Liberian Finance Ministry employee en route to a conference in Nigeria, was vomiting and had diarrhea aboard at least one of his flights with some 50 other passengers aboard. Ebola can be contracted from traces of feces or vomit, experts say”. I would submit that it is time to get worried. And given the fact that we now know that Ebola detection kits have been deployed in National Guard unit kits in all 50 states, it would appear that someone knew about this possibility for sometime.
We are either looking at gross negligence or a well-planned conspiracy.
