Democrat lawmaker Alan Grayson wants the US to close its border to Ebola countries.
US News reported, via Free Republic:

The dreaded Ebola virus has spread from the jungle into major cities in West Africa, and at least one American congressman believes it’s time to ban citizens of the three hardest-hit countries, as well as foreigners who recently visited them, from entering the U.S.

Rep. Alan Grayson, D-Fla., requested the travel ban in a Tuesday letter to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson and Secretary of State John Kerry.

Citizens of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone should be barred from entry, Grayson wrote, as should any foreign national who visited one of the countries 90 days before their intended visit to the U.S. He wants the proposed ban to remain in effect for the duration of the outbreak and to be expanded to any other country where Ebola takes hold.

“I urge you to consider the enhanced danger Ebola now presents to the American public, and therefore request that appropriate travel restrictions be implemented immediately,” he wrote.

Islamic terrorists gain supporters in India.
Youngisthan reported:

While UN is mulling over including the fighters from the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) to a list of war crimes suspects in Syria, security forces fighting militancy in India have a new worry at hand.

The flags and banners of ISIS and Al Qaeda have made their debut in the terror plagued Kashmir.

Yesterday, after offering Eid prayers at Eidgah, people started shouting anti-Israel and Pro-Palestine slogans to protest the Israeli aggression on Gaza. The call for 30 minute post-namaz protests was given by Hurriyat chief Syed Ali Shah Geelani.

Reportedly, masked men surfaced in the sensitive old city and waved black flags and banners of ISIS and Al Qaeda with Kalima (the first basic fundamental of Islam) inscribed on them. Some men even used the flags as masks to hide their faces even as other men watched from the lanes and bylanes.

The Hamas “humanitarian organization” shot dead 20 protesters who dared to demonstrate against the terrorist’s war with Israel.
The Jerusalem Post reported:

Hamas shot some 20 Palestinians on Monday night for protesting against Hamas for the massive destruction inflicted on their neighborhood in Shejaia by the IDF in the past weeks, Channel 10 reported on Tuesday.

Over the past few days, Hamas has executed more than 30 civilians from various parts of the Gaza Strip which it suspected of collaborating with Israel, unidentified Palestinian security sources told the Palestine Press News Agency.

Hamas claimed it had detected alleged “spies” in the area of Shejaia and said that they were executed after an investigation into some of them. Such investigations reportedly revealed weapons and communication devices in the possession of the “spies.”

 

Jesse Ventura on Lawsuit Victory: “I’m Already Damaged. I Can’t Go to a SEAL Reunion Anymore” (Video)

Posted by Jim Hoft on Wednesday, July 30, 2014, 9:05 AM

Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura joined the “CBS This Morning” co-hosts Wednesday to discuss the details of his legal battle with a former U.S. sniper. On Tuesday a federal jury awarded Jesse Ventura $1.8 million in his case against Kyle’s widow.
The former governor told CBS:

I’m already damaged. I can’t go to a SEAL reunion anymore. That was the one place I felt safe. I can’t go there anymore. I’ll be looking over my shoulder now wondering who’s going to come after me next. And, so don’t think I come out of this unscathed. All I wanted to do was clear my name and it has nothing to do with a widow or anything like that. It was me against an insurance company… I’m not getting hammered in the court of public opinion. People are walking up to me everyday and shaking my hand. How am I getting hammered in the court of public opinion?”

Ventura said he would use the money to pay his lawyers.

Ventura may have won the lawsuit but didn’t gain many friends after suing the widow of an American hero.

Former Israeli Ambassador to US: “I Take Great Exception” to WH Spokesman’s Negative Remarks on Israel (Video)

Posted by Jim Hoft on Wednesday, July 30, 2014, 8:54 AM

Former US Ambassador Michael Oren joined Hannity to discuss Israel’s War with Hamas.
Oren took “great exception” to the recent statements by Obama administration officials critical of Israel.

“First of all let’s go back to the White House spokesman. As a citizen of Israel, as a 30 year veteran of the Israeli army, as the father of three soldiers I take strong exception to that remark that Israel is not doing enough. Israel is doing more than every army in military history to try to avoid civilian casualties.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest attacked Israel this week saying “there is more [Israel] should do” to prevent civilian casualties in their strikes on Gaza.

 

MEXICO COMPLAINS After Texas Announces Plans to Send National Guard to Border

Posted by Jim Hoft on Wednesday, July 30, 2014, 8:35 AM

Last week Governor Rick Perry announced plans to send the Texas National Guard to the border with Mexico in the coming weeks. Up to 1,000 National Guard troops will deploy to the Rio Grande Valley in Texas. Over 57,000 unaccompanied illegal immigrant minors have entered the United States via the border with Mexico in the past year.

Now Mexico is complaining.
FOX News Latino reported, via Right Wing News:

The Mexican government on Tuesday expressed its “concern” over the decision by Texas authorities to send 1,000 National Guard troops to the border to help stem the massive arrival of undocumented child migrants from Central America.

“Attention to the immigration phenomenon must be paid from a long-term regional perspective and based on the principles of good neighborliness and shared responsibility,” the Foreign Relations Secretariat said in a statement.

“The strategy for responding in an effective and humane manner to this phenomenon includes the necessary shared responsibility among the countries of origin, transit and destination of migration flows,” the statement continued.

The secretariat declared its commitment to the protection of the migrants’ human rights and the orchestration of “specific actions directed at the most vulnerable, including unaccompanied children and teenagers.”

The secretariat emphasized that Mexico had opted for a strategy favoring dialogue and cooperation, and it is working “with the countries of Central America to improve conditions in the medium and long term that contribute to the development of that region and strengthen its prosperity.”

 

Ebola: White House Raises Specter of Gov’t Closure During D.C. Africa Summit

The Obama administration is urging federal employees to stay home during the summit of African leaders being held in Washington, D.C. next week and to monitor local news for announcement of a possible “closing of the federal government” —ostensibly over traffic issues.

At the same time the administration said the federal government is taking no “additional precautions” to deal with the potential spread of the Ebola virus by those attending the summit.

In a twelve paragraph article on the summit of African leaders hosted by President Obama, the New York Times devotes five paragraphs to the issue of Ebola affecting the summit—an issue the Gateway Pundit has raised in several articles this week.

The Ebola death last week of Patrick Sawyer, a naturalized American citizen who was working for the government of his native Liberia raised worldwide fear as he was able to travel by passenger plane from Liberia to Nigeria with a layover in Togo on his way to an international conference without his condition being noted until he became seriously ill on approach to Lagos.

Leaders and government officials from Liberia as well as the other nations affected by Ebola—Guinea, Sierra Leone and Nigeria are expected to attend the D.C. summit.

From the Times:

“In an email to top officials at federal offices, the nation’s personnel chief urged agencies to let their workers stay at home during the event, which takes place next Tuesday and Wednesday. Traffic is also expected to be snarled on Monday and Thursday as the leaders arrive and leave.

““Agencies should consider encouraging employees who can be spared from their duties to request to adjust their work schedules,” Katherine Archuleta, the director of the Office of Personnel Management, wrote Friday in a memo.”

…”Ms. Archuleta wrote that for now the federal government would remain open Monday through Thursday next week, but she advised federal employees to monitor local news outlets for announcements about potential street closings, disruptions to public transportation or a closing of the federal government.”

…””We believe air travel continues to be safe, and the C.D.C. has stated there is no significant risk in the United States from the current Ebola outbreak,” Edward Price, a spokesman for the White House National Security Council, said in an email.”

…”A spokesman for the C.D.C. said procedures were already in place to stem the spread of Ebola, and flight crews and airline personnel will generally not allow a sick passenger to board a plane.

“The spokesman, Jason McDonald, said, “There are no plans or indications that we’re going to take any additional precautions with the leaders who are coming.”

The White House downplaying of the Ebola threat contradicted State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki who said Monday about the summit, “…we’re taking every precaution…”

State gatherings in our nation’s capital are highly orchestrated affairs and quite common. This event was announced by the White House in January. It is odd for the federal government to suddenly urge its employees to stay home during a normal work week and to be aware for a possible government shut down on short notice.

 

CONFIRMED: Hamas Rockets Bombed Palestinian Refugee Camp

Italian reporter Gabriele Barbati, who has now left Gaza and is no longer under direct threat of retaliation by Hamas, is telling the truth about what’s going on there. Hamas bombed the Palestinian camp in Shati – not Israel.
Twitchy reported:

It’s difficult to report the truth when jihadis are threatening to cut your head off. The major networks should run a disclaimer to that effect when they carry reports from Hamas controlled territory.

In another tweet Gabriele admitted:

“I confirm now that out #Gaza. The massacre of children yesterday in Shati isn’t #Israele’s fault. #IDF True release. It was Hamas rocket.”

WOW! Hillary Claims Hamas Fires Rockets From Schools Because “Gaza Is Small” (Video)

Posted by Jim Hoft on Tuesday, July 29, 2014, 9:55 PM

Wow!… And this could be to be the next leader of the Free World?
In an interview on Fusion TV former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton claimed Hamas fired rockets from schools because “Gaza is small.”

There are so many things wrong with this statement:

“I think Hamas intended to provoke Israel, because that is why they started the rocket fire again. As I said when I negotiated a ceasefire it held until just this month. And, then Hamas which has its back against the wall decided to once again fire rockets into Israel. Israel made it clear that wasn’t acceptable… The problem is, and I’m not a military planner, Hamas puts its missiles, its rockets into civilian areas. Part of it is because Gaza is pretty small and it’s densely populated.


Could you even imagine if Sarah Palin would have said something this dumb?

Hamas and other extremist groups in Gaza have fired 2,491 rockets into Israel so far this year.
There was no ceasefire.

And, for the third time this month a terrorist rocket arsenal was found at a UN school in Gaza Tuesday.

 

Facebook Event Urges John Boehner to Find “Some Balls” to Impeach Obama

boehner balls

A new Facebook event page was created today to encourage Speaker John Boehner to find “some balls” to impeach Obama.

The Examiner reported:

House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, has said Republicans have no plans to impeach President Obama, and any talk of impeachment is simply a “scam” started by Democrats in the White House. But conservative talk show host Josh Bernstein of “The Josh Bernstein Show” says he’s “had enough,” and started a Facebook event called “Operation: Balls to Impeach” on Tuesday.

Bernstein, a harsh critic of the administration, has been considering the event for some time. In a statement to Examiner.com, he expressed deep frustration with the administration and with Republicans who refuse to take action.

From the Facebook page:

I HAVE HAD ENOUGH.

I AM INSTRUCTING ALL AMERICANS WHO ARE TIRED OF THE LIES, TIRED OF THE SCANDALS, AND TIRED OF THE CORRUPTION TO PARTICIPATE IN OPERATION BALLS TO IMPEACH.

UNLESS YOU ARE A LEFTIST WHO HATES AMERICA THERE IS NO REASON YOU CAN NOT JOIN AND PARTICIPATE IN THIS EVENT.

IF YOU ARE TIRED OF COMPLAINING AND WANT TO TAKE ACTION PLEASE READ MY LETTER AND FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS. PLEASE SHARE IT, POST IT, TWEET IT, EMAIL IT, ETC.

IF EVERYONE PARTICIPATES IN THIS I GUARANTEE YOU WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

GOD BLESS YOU AND GOD BLESS AMERICA.

READ THE LETTER HERE.
