Dr. Tom Frieden, director for the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), said during a telephone press briefing Wednesday that you cannot get Ebola by sitting next to someone on a bus, but that infected or exposed persons should not ride public transportation because they could transmit the disease to someone else.
Dr. Frieden also reported that a Dallas health-care worker who has been diagnosed with Ebola had a temperature of 99.5 when she flew from Cleveland to Dallas on Monday.
Frieden’s Read more [...]
Once again the political debate has come down to a choice between what is best for the American people versus what the Democrats want politically. The fact that the discussion involves a debate over such an obvious threat to the lives of millions of Americans doesn’t enter into the Democrat thought process. They’ve got an open-borders agenda and that, not the citizens of our nation, is what will be protected.
Republicans and others who recognize the continued influx of new carriers of the Read more [...]
President Obama scrapped his scheduled trip to Rhode Island and New York on Thursday to continue monitoring the Ebola crisis, the White House announced late Wednesday.
"The President will remain at the White House to follow up on today’s Cabinet meeting on the government’s Ebola response," the White House said in a statement.
More details about the president's activities on Ebola will be released on Thursday morning.
The announcement comes after Obama canceled a campaign trip to New Read more [...]
Houston mayor, Annise Parker, the city’s first openly lesbian mayor, is conducting a litigious witch-hunt against religious leaders, issuing subpoenas that demand the sermons of pastors who may have spoken on the topic of homosexuality, gender identity, or Parker herself. Pastors who do not comply may be held in contempt of court.
The actions taken by Parker and her administration are a clear affront to freedom of speech, an assault on the concept of separation of church and state, and constitute Read more [...]
The Islamic State has published an updated version of its propaganda booklet “Dabiq,” that clearly identifies its No. 1 enemy – Christianity.
The cover photo shows a black ISIS flag flying over the Vatican. The booklet describes the terrorist army’s desires to conquer Rome and “break the cross,” according to a report in Arutz Sheva, an independent Israeli news network.
According to some Islamic traditions, the Islamic prophet Mohammed predicted that the occupation of Istanbul, Jerusalem Read more [...]
Those planning to purchase health insurance on the Obamacare exchange will soon find out how much rates have increased — after the Nov. 4 election.
Enrollment on the Healthcare.gov website begins Nov. 15, or 11 days after the midterm vote, and critics who worry about rising premium hikes in 2015 say that’s no coincidence. Last year’s inaugural enrollment period on the health-care exchange began Oct. 1.
“This is more than just a glitch,” said Tim Phillips, president of free-market Read more [...]
ABC News reports that “[a] state appeals court will decide in coming weeks whether chimpanzees are entitled to ‘legal personhood’ in a case that could lead to expanded rights for animals such as gorillas, elephants and dolphins, according to the lawyer advocating for a 26-year-old chimp named Tommy.”
Unborn babies don’t have any rights. They can be killed for any reason.
Business owners don’t have any rights. They must sell to people even if they disagree with their immoral lifestyles Read more [...]
Scaling back the public's expectations is a strategy Obamacare defenders ought to have employed during their original sales pitch of 2009 and 2010. If they hadn't made some many big, falsifiable promises, a lot of consumer anger, frustration and betrayal might have been prevented. Then again, if they hadn't made all of those vows, the law wouldn't have passed in the first place. With round two of Obamacare enrollment coming up after the elections (by design), the administration is trying to play Read more [...]
In the first two years since First Lady Michelle Obama launched her ‘Let’s Move’ campaign to fight childhood obesity in 2010, teenage obesity rates increased, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
From 2009-2010, 18.4 percent of children ages 12-19 were classified as obese, according to the CDC. Since then, from 2011-2012, one in five children ages 12-19 or 20.5 percent, were classified as obese, an increase of 11.4 percent. The CDC has been tracking Read more [...]
Thirteen-year-old Dillyar cannot get the image of his cousin being beheaded out of his mind. The pair were fleeing Kobane and running down a street when Islamic State fighters blocked their exit.
Dillyar managed to slip through their grasp but his cousin Mohammed, 20, was seized, and gave a blood-curdling scream as one of the black-clad maniacs drew out a knife.
'They pushed him to the ground and sawed his head off, shouting 'Allahu Akbar',' the schoolboy told me yesterday. 'I see it in my Read more [...]
Secretary of State John Kerry said that if we don’t do something about global warming, life as we know it on earth ends.
Global warming is the liberal counterpart to the “war on terror.” Politicians pretending to espouse these views use the same fear tactics to scare people into giving up more and more of their freedoms in order to “feel safe.”
The “war on terror” generally appealed to people on the right, because of their penchant for war. Politicians got a lot of use out of Read more [...]
The day after our local medical facility experts in the community near where I live proclaimed the facility was capable of "isolating and caring" for an Ebola stricken-individual because of training, FoxNews has reported that caregivers have not received training through a national training program with experts who have worked in hospitals with Ebola.
Buried in their story was a statement from Dr. Gavin McGregor-Skinner at Penn State University, expert in public health awareness. McGregor-Skinner Read more [...]
