Possible Ebola Case in Washington, D.C. Suburb Arlington, Virginia

Posted by Kristinn Taylor on Thursday, February 26, 2015, 11:33 AM

Washington, D.C. media are reporting a patient with Ebola symptoms was hospitalized by crews wearing hazmat gear in the Washington, D.C. suburb of Arlington, Virginia.

The Washington Post quoted an Arlington County health official downplaying the incident:

“Arlington County fire officials have transported a patient to the hospital from a Clarendon apartment building using their Ebola protocols, though a department spokesman said it is “unlikely” that they are dealing with a real case of the deadly disease.

“Lt. Sarah-Maria Marchegiani said the patient had traveled recently to an Ebola affected country and exhibited symptoms consistent with the disease, so medics wearing protective clothing removed the person from the apartment at 1128 North Irving Street and notified Virginia Hospital Center to prepare for a possible Ebola patient. Marchegiani said, though, that the steps were taken out of an abundance of caution.

““While it’s unlikely that this is an Ebola case, the fire department and public health department and receiving hospital are taking all the precautions,” Marchegiani said.

Clarendon is a densely populated area with condos, apartments, single family homes, bars, night clubs, coffee shops, cafes, restaurants, schools and shopping. Its close proximity to Washington, D.C. makes it a haven for government workers and companies that do business with the federal government.

Arlington Patch describes the building the potential Ebola patient was removed from as a “luxury apartment building.”

“The patient lives at 1128 N. Irving Street in Clarendon, she(Marchegiani) said. The address is home to The Beacon Clarendon, a luxury apartment building.”

The Australian reported:

FORMER Queensland army reservist Ash Johnston has become the first Western fighter to be killed by Islamic State while fighting with Kurdish forces, after leaving the comforts of Canberra to help efforts to eradicate the terror group in Iraq.

Mr Johnston, 28, had spent seven years in the Army reserve but had only experienced peacekeeping missions prior to joining the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) in fighting the Islamic State, adopting the name Heval Bagok Sherhad.

The Defence Department confirmed the former reservist is believed to be dead.

“Defence is aware that a former Australian Army Reserve member is believed to have been killed in northern Iraq while allegedly fighting with Peshmerga forces against Daesh (Islamic State),” Defence said in a statement.

“Due to the provisions of the Privacy Act, Defence will not release further information about the former member’s military service or their personal details.”

ISIS linked Twitter accounts reported the news yesterday.


Figures. James Clapper Contradicts John Kerry Less Than 24 Hrs After His Testimony Before Congress

Posted by Jim Hoft on Thursday, February 26, 2015, 9:42 AM

Director of National Intelligence James Clapper completely contradicts John Kerry less than 24 hours after his testimony before Congress.

On Wednesday Obama Secretary of State John Kerry told Congress:

Our citizens, our world today is actually, despite ISIL, despite the visible killings that you see and how horrific they are, we are actually living in a period of less daily threat to Americans and to people in the world than normally— less deaths, less violent deaths today than through the last century.

On Thursday Obama Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told Congress:

“When the final accounting is done. 2014 will be the most lethal year in global terrorism in the 45 years such data has been compiled. About half of all attacks including fatalities in 2014 occurred in just three countries, Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan.”

Do these people have any idea what they’re doing?

Obama’s Illegal Alien Town Hall Has Better Security Than the US Border

Posted by Jim Hoft on Thursday, February 26, 2015, 8:37 AM

Barack Obama flew to Miami Wednesday to discuss executive amnesty for illegal immigrants.

But if you wanted to attend the event you would have to bust through security – only handpicked illegals will be given tickets to the “town hall.”
Via Twitchy:

From today’s Miami Herald:

Though billed as a “town hall,” tickets for Wednesday’s private event were distributed by organizers and not made publicly available. Telemundo and MSNBC rented the public Graham Center facility at FIU’s main campus for about $39,000, according to a copy of the contract.

So, who does MSNBC and Telemundo want to hear from if not from members of the public?
Illegal immigrants, that’s who:

The president is expected to take questions Wednesday directly from undocumented immigrants at the taping of an event at Florida International University that will later air nationally on Miami-based Telemundo and sister network MSNBC. He will also likely address the Homeland Security Department budget, which is pending in Congress amid a political fight over funding Obama’s executive immigration actions. A Friday deadline looms.

The illegal alien town hall will have better security than our southern border.


Unmasked: ‘Jihad John’ Is Identified as Londoner Mohammed Emwazi

The man who appeared in several ISIS videos lecturing and beheading Western victims in cold blood has been identified as Mohammed Emwazi.
The Washington Post reported:

The world knows him as “Jihadi John,” the masked man with a British accent who has beheaded several hostages held by the Islamic State and who taunts audiences in videos circulated widely online.

But his real name, according to friends and others familiar with his case, is Mohammed Emwazi, a Briton from a well-to-do family who grew up in West London and graduated from college with a degree in computer programming. He is believed to have traveled to Syria around 2012 and to have later joined the Islamic State, the group whose barbarity he has come to symbolize.

“I have no doubt that Mohammed is Jihadi John,” said one of Emwazi’s close friends who identified him in an interview with The Washington Post. “He was like a brother to me. . . . I am sure it is him.”

Jihadi John Emwazi appeared in several ISIS videos beheading Western victims.

Im October The Daily Mail reported that drones had tracked down Jihadi John in Raqqa, Syria. But British defense forces believe a strike on his camp would end in a bloody failure.

Of course, Jihadi John’s family is described as a “normal Muslim family.”


John Kerry: Netanyahu Is Wrong On Iran Because He Supported Iraq War …(Kerry Voted for Iraq War)

Posted by Jim Hoft on Wednesday, February 25, 2015, 10:50 PM

Secretary of State John Kerry bashed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu today. Kerry said Netanyahu could not be trusted because he supported the Iraq War.

** John Kerry voted for the Iraq War and stood by his vote years later.

** Benjamin Netanyahu was not prime minister when the Iraq War was debated and launched.

The Kelly File posted the video:

John Kerry voted for the Iraq War.
Talking Points Memo reported:

Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday slammed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s opposition to a potential nuclear deal with Iran, calling it as wrongheaded as the prime minister’s backing of the Iraq War.

“Israel is safer today with the added time we have given and the stoppage of the advances in the nuclear program than they were before we got that agreement, which by the way the prime minister opposed,” Kerry said during a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing. “He was wrong.”

Kerry was later asked to address Netanyahu’s criticism of a hypothetical deal with Iran as a threat to Israel.

“The prime minister was profoundly forward-leaning and outspoken about the importance of invading Iraq under George W. Bush,” Kerry replied. “We all know what happened with that decision.”

Actually, for the record, George W. Bush won that war. Barack Obama lost it to ISIS.


Black Privilege: Students Get SAT Bonus Points for Being Black or Hispanic – Asians Are Penalized

Posted by Jim Hoft on Wednesday, February 25, 2015, 10:48 PM

college students

A report in the LA Times revealed that blacks and Hispanics get bonus SAT points at elite universities based on their race. Asian students however are penalized 50 points due to their race.
The LA Times reported, via DownTrend:

Lee’s next slide shows three columns of numbers from a Princeton University study that tried to measure how race and ethnicity affect admissions by using SAT scores as a benchmark. It uses the term “bonus” to describe how many extra SAT points an applicant’s race is worth. She points to the first column.

African Americans received a “bonus” of 230 points, Lee says.

She points to the second column.

“Hispanics received a bonus of 185 points.”

The last column draws gasps.

Asian Americans, Lee says, are penalized by 50 points — in other words, they had to do that much better to win admission.

“Do Asians need higher test scores? Is it harder for Asians to get into college? The answer is yes,” Lee says.

“Zenme keyi,” one mother hisses in Chinese. How can this be possible?

Downtrend also noted that college athletes also receive bonus points during the application process.


Shock Poll: Majority of Democrats Don’t Believe Obama is a Christian

Posted by Kristinn Taylor on Wednesday, February 25, 2015, 7:24 PM

The liberal media is putting potential Republican presidential candidates through the Obama Inquisition, demanding they state for the record if they believe President Barack Hussein Obama II is a Christian as he claims. Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker was pilloried for telling the Washington Post this past weekend he isn’t sure about Obama’s faith.

It turns out the Republican Walker is aligned with the majority of the Democratic Party faithful when it comes to not being sure of Obama’s professed Christianity.

A poll released Wednesday at a Washington Post blog site buries the news that a majority of Democrats do not believe Obama is a Christian. Instead the article focuses on a slim majority of Republicans (fifty-four percent) thinking Obama is a Muslim. At this point in his presidency, Republicans thinking Obama is a closet Muslim is not news.

What is news is that Obama’s fellow Democrats think he is lying about being a Christian.

According to the poll conducted last fall and released Wednesday, only forty-five percent of Democrats believe Obama is a Christian at heart. Twenty-six percent don’t know what Obama believes, seventeen percent think Obama is “spiritual” while ten percent think Obama is a Muslim. Two percent say Obama is an atheist.

Only nine percent of Republicans and sixteen percent of independents believe Obama is a Christian.

The poll asked respondents:

“Which of these do you think most likely describes what Obama believes deep down? Muslim, Christian, atheist, spiritual, or I don’t know.”

The Post credit the author of the article and poll reads:

“Alex Theodoridis is an Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of California, Merced.

“Note: The survey was conducted as part of the 2014 Cooperative Congressional Election Study. The CCES was conducted by the survey firm YouGov in two waves in October and November of 2014. The sampling frame was American adults and the sample size for this particular question about Obama’s religion was 1,000. Respondents were interviewed on-line. Further information about the YouGov sampling methodology is here, here, and here.


ISIS Mass Beheadings of Egyptian Copts Akin to Slaughter of Christian Martyrs of Otrano

Posted by Jim Hoft on Wednesday, February 25, 2015, 6:19 PM

The skulls of the martyrs adorn the Otranto Cathedral walls.
ortranto cathedral
The Otranto Cathedral was consecrated in 1088. In August 1480, clergy and survivors of the Ottoman siege of Otranto took refuge in the cathedral – the Ottoman force eventually broke in and killed those inside, turning the church into a stable or a mosque and destroying its 13th century frescoes. After Otranto was retaken in 1481 by a force under Alfonso V of Aragon it was turned back into a church and heavily rebuilt to house the relics of the Martyrs of Otranto, who had been executed after the 1480 siege. Behind the chapel’s altar is the ‘stone of martyrdom’, traditionally held to be that used to behead the martyrs. On August 12, 1480, 800 citizens were taken to the hill of Minerva, now called the Hill of the Martyrs, and beheaded because they refused to renounce their Catholic faith. Their remains were taken to the cathedral and the skulls preserved in the altar piece as a prominent reminder of these 800 martyrs.

Pope Francis canonized the 800 Christians who refused to denounce their faith and were slaughtered by Muslims in Otranto, Italy.

Earlier this month ISIS beheaded 21 Christian Copts on a beach in Libya.
