Is It Wise For Obama To Send Thousands Of U.S. Troops Into The Ebola Death Zone?

Ebola Cases And Deaths Per Day - Photo by Leopoldo Martin RWhen there is a major problem somewhere in the world, Barack Obama loves to show that he is “doing something” by sending a contingent of U.S. troops to the affected area.  But is it really wise for Obama to send thousands of young American men and women into the Ebola death zone?  What are our troops going to do – shoot the virus?  Of course not.  The UN already has 6,000 uniformed peacekeepers in the region, and they are not doing much good.  The truth is that this is a medical crisis that requires medical personnel.  By sending thousands of troops into the heart of the Ebola pandemic, we make it much more likely that Ebola will be brought back to the United States.  Obama should keep in mind that hundreds of health workers have become infected even though they wear protective gear and are trained to deal with Ebola patients.  Our troops have not been trained to deal with Ebola patients and they probably will not be wearing full protective gear when dealing with the general population.  But there are sick people among the general population that could pass Ebola to them.

The NFL Has Become A Circus Of Political Correctness

NFL Cam_Newton_during_the_2011_NFL_season - Photo by Pantherfan11Do you remember when the NFL actually used to be about football?  The NFL has become a reflection of society at large, and it has been disgusting to watch the transformation take place.  And I am not talking about the reprehensible behavior of players such as Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson and Greg Hardy.  The things that each of those men are accused of doing are absolutely horrible, and each one of them should have the opportunity to be held accountable for their actions in a court of law.  But what I am talking about is how the NFL has become a circus of political correctness.  These days, there is very little talk about what is actually happening on the field.  Rather, there is endless debate about the latest scandals and about what the proper politically-sensitive response to those scandals should be.  And of course the media just loves to add fuel to the fire.  If they can get a coach or a player to say something that is just slightly politically inappropriate that will give them the latest “breaking news” to write about.

‘ISIL Is Not Islamic’? Is Obama Completely Insane?

Obama Giving Speech - Public DomainDuring his nationally televised speech on Wednesday night, Barack Obama told the entire nation that “ISIL is not Islamic”.  Well, then what in the world are they?  Atheists?  And what is Obama going to try to convince us of next?  That the Pope is not Catholic?  Of all of Obama’s lies (and there certainly have been a lot of them), this one might take the cake.  Of course ISIL is Islamic.  That is why they call themselves The Islamic State.  The stated goal of these religious radicals is to establish an Islamic caliphate which will be governed by a single supreme Islamic leader known as a khalifah.  The law in the caliphate will be Islamic sharia law, and anyone not willing to convert to the form of Islam practiced by the Islamic State will be either killed or persecuted intensely.  But because of Barack Obama’s extreme political correctness, he simply cannot admit that the Islamic State has anything to do with Islam.  As a result, he continues to pursue policies that will not solve anything in the Middle East and at this point our foreign policy in the region is a total joke.

While Obama Snoozes, Russia Is Preparing For Nuclear War With The United States

Nuclear War - Public DomainDid you know that two Russian bombers practiced launching cruise missiles at the United States from a spot in the North Atlantic just the other day?  And did you know that Russia is spending massive amounts of money to build and test new nuclear weapons systems?  Meanwhile, the Obama administration is doing absolutely nothing to upgrade the U.S. nuclear arsenal.  Our nuclear officers are actually still using floppy disks and other computer technology from the 1960s.  The size of the U.S. nuclear arsenal has been reduced by about 95 percent from the peak of the Cold War, and Barack Obama has spoken of even more dramatic reductions.  Obama is snoozing even as a Russian general speaks of the need to “spell out the conditions under which Russia would launch a preemptive nuclear strike” against the United States.  Obama appears to be entirely convinced that a nuclear war between the U.S. and Russia is not even a remote possibility.  He better be right, because we are definitely not prepared for one.

No More Places To Put Ebola Patients In Liberia But Cases Are Growing Exponentially

Ebola Cases And Ebola Deaths - Photo by Leopoldo Martin RThere is not a single empty bed available for an Ebola patient in Liberia right now, but thousands more cases are expected in the coming weeks.  Entire families have been driving around in taxis looking for some place that will take their sick family members, but every treatment facility is already full.  According to the World Health Organization, many of those potential Ebola patients end up returning to their homes where there will inevitably spread the virus to even more people.  What we are watching unfold is literally a nightmare scenario.  According to the WHO, 4,293 cases of Ebola have now been recorded and 2,296 people have died from the disease.  But what makes those numbers so alarming is that the spread of the virus appears to be accelerating.  47 percent of the deaths and 49 percent of the cases have come in the last 21 days.  If Ebola continues to spread at an exponential pace like this, we could be looking at the greatest public health crisis in any of our lifetimes.

Pope Francis And Shimon Peres Discuss The Establishment Of A ‘United Nations Of Religions’

Pope Francis - Photo by Edgar JimenezLast Thursday, Pope Francis and former Israeli President Shimon Peres met for an extended 45 minute private conversation.  The focus of this discussion was a proposal by Peres to establish a “United Nations of Religions”.  It was the third meeting between the two men in a little more than four months.  As you will see below, Pope Francis showed “his interest, attention, and encouragement” as Peres explained his proposal.  Of course Pope Francis didn’t commit to anything, and we probably will not see a “United Nations of Religions” any time soon, but every idea has to start somewhere.  If Pope Francis does ultimately decide to actively push for such a thing, could we eventually see a single global body that claims to represent all of the religions of the world?
