Next on the Bitter Half’s School Lunch Menu

They say the Ebola epidemic could have started due to the quaint West African custom of eating bushmeat — namely, infected bats. Since the Obama Administration seems to be doing everything else possible to ensure that the virus infects Americans (refusing to stop letting West Africans into the country, sending over troops without proper protective equipment to bring back the disease, even planning to deliberately import infected foreigners for treatment at our massive expense, etc.), we may soon see an addition to Michelle Obama’s school lunch menu that will help expand our multicultural horizons:

Ministers Defy Tyrannical Law Forcing Them to Perform Blasphemous Parodies of Weddings

Perplexed as to why the liberal establishment would devote so much energy to imposing homosexual “marriage” through judicial decree while using its control of the media to brainwash the herd into going along with it, when the country is facing so many serious problems? This ought to clarify matters:

Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys filed a federal lawsuit and a motion for a temporary restraining order Friday to stop officials in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, from forcing two ordained Christian ministers to perform wedding ceremonies for same-sex couples.

City officials told Donald Knapp that he and his wife Evelyn, both ordained ministers who run Hitching Post Wedding Chapel, are required to perform such ceremonies or face months in jail and/or thousands of dollars in fines. The city claims its “non-discrimination” ordinance requires the Knapps to perform same-sex wedding ceremonies now that the courts have overridden Idaho’s voter-approved constitutional amendment that affirmed marriage as the union of a man and a woman.

For refusing to perform a blasphemous parody of a marriage, the Knapps face up to 180 days in jail and a $1,000 fine for each day that they don’t betray their faith.

The “gay rights” blitzkrieg is approaching its end game. With progressives, the issue is never the issue; the issue is always power. Christianity has traditionally served as a major bulwark against tyranny. Therefore, it needs to be destroyed, so that pointy-headed masterminds will be better able to impose their repugnant concept of utopia.

There could be no better means of destroying Christianity than forcing ministers to betray their faith.

This is not about “rights” for sexual deviants. If the Knapps are imprisoned, it will be for exactly the same reason Stalin sent priests and nuns to die in his gulags.

We’ll soon know if the First Amendment’s guarantee of religious freedom still applies in Hopey Changey America.

Dallas Hospital Could Have Detected Ebola Immediately but FDA Wouldn’t Let It

Supposedly we don’t need freedom, because if we give it up, the authorities will keep us safe from all threats. Ebola has certainly ripped the lid off this lie. Not only has Big Government deliberately facilitated the importation of Ebola, it has prevented the early diagnosis that could be life-saving:

The Dallas hospital that sent home Thomas Eric Duncan the first time he showed up at the emergency room has a machine that could have detected Ebola in less than an hour – but doctors were barred from using it because of federal regulations.

Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital has treated three Ebola patients – Duncan, who died last week, and two of its own nurses who contracted the disease from Duncan. In each case, the hospital had to wait up to two days for confirmation that that patients were infected with the virus.

The Associated Press has also reported the medical records reveal nurses didn’t wear full protective gear while treating Duncan for two days while they awaited the results of his Ebola test.

The device is cheap by medical standards at $39,000. But lives were endangered as it sat unused because the bureauweenies at the FDA haven’t gotten around to approving it for detecting Ebola. Somebody at BioFire Diagnostics, which manufactures the device, needs to grease the wheels with a donation to the Democrat Party. Maybe they could repurpose some of the $240 million the federal government gave them to “hone the device to detect Ebola and other deadly pathogens,” which it apparently does quite well.

Or maybe the device isn’t necessary. We all know that the practice of taking passengers’ temperature is a joke, since Ebola vectors may not have a fever yet when they set off to avail themselves of free healthcare at our expense, or they may reduce their fevers with Tylenol. But officials were able to instantly determine that a passenger from Nigeria who vomited uncontrollably and then died on a flight into JFK did not have Ebola after only a cursory examination. They are encouraged to share their impressive expertise with others.

Moonlight Fire: An Underreported Example of Injustice Department’s Corruption and Abuse of Power

Among the most appalling examples of the corruption and abuse of power that now prevail at what once was known as the Justice Department is a case you may not have heard of, because the mainstream media is still carrying Obama’s water by ignoring whatever it can get away with ignoring. The New York Observer is among the very few publications to acknowledge fraudulent litigation brought by the Injustice Department against a lumber company accused of starting a wildfire in California…

In what was dubbed the “Moonlight Fire” case, the tables are now turned. The defendants have discovered new evidence and filed a stunning motion. The new evidence and disclosures are being taken seriously by the Chief Judge of the Eastern District of California—as they should be. In a shocking action, Judge Morrison C. England Jr. ordered the recusal of every federal judge in the Eastern District of California.

Sierra Pacific Industries and other defendants were compelled to pay $55 million to the United States over a period of five years and transfer 22,500 acres of land to settle massive litigation brought against them by the United States alleging that they caused a 2007 fire that destroyed 65,000 acres in California. Sierra Pacific has always maintained that the fire started elsewhere and that the state and federal investigators and Department attorneys lied.

Fortunately it looks like enough residual rule of law has survived Hope & Change that this Michael Brown–style strong-arm robbery will fail.

Judge England, Chief Judge of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California, ordered the recusal of all the Eastern District judges from the case because of serious allegations that the Court itself was defrauded by the government in the original prosecution. To avoid any appearance of partiality, he has referred the case to Ninth Circuit Chief Judge Alex Kozinski to appoint a judge from outside the Eastern District to handle the case going forward. Judge Kozinski has excoriated prosecutors for failing to meet their legal and ethical obligations.

The Department of Social Justice stands accused of presenting false evidence, tampering with witnesses, and failing to disclose the lead investigator’s direct financial interest in the case.

The unethical conduct occurred not just with the approval but at the insistence of those higher up the ladder of a department that has become thoroughly debased under Obama’s rule.

The Sacramento Bee reported on the Defendant’s filing. Indeed, the Defendants’ motion informs us that a former Assistant United States Attorney came forward and disclosed that he believes that he was removed from the original prosecution by “his boss, David Shelledy, chief of the civil division in the United States Attorney’s office,” because he “rebuffed” pressure to “engage in unethical conduct as a lawyer.” Of course, like other former prosecutors who were unethical, Mr. Shelledy is to receive Attorney General Holder’s highest award for excellence—[last] week.

No doubt Shelledy’s apparent thuggery is justified by historical injustice. Or whatever.

The defendants also reveal that another former federal prosecutor, Eric Overby, left the Moonlight Fire prosecution team also, stating: “It’s called the Department of Justice. It’s not called the Department of Revenue.” According to the motion, Mr. Overby told defense counsel that in his entire career, “I’ve never seen anything like this. Never.”

I have. Right here:

Michael Brown

If Michael Brown had managed to kill Darren Wilson without getting shot first, he could replace Eric Holder without any noticeable difference in the way the Injustice Department is run.

The Moonlight Fire corruption is nothing novel for the Observer either:

This is part of a disturbing and rapidly increasing pattern of abuses by this Department of Justice to line government coffers or redistribute the wealth to its political allies—using its overwhelming litigation might and federal agencies as a tool of extortion and wealth redistribution.

Obama’s promised “fundamental transformation” is a looting spree that will last until America collapses into a dysfunctional Third World hellhole, or until the system has been scoured clean of progressives and their greedy, corrupt, coercion-based ideology.

Obama’s Credit Card Rejected

What could be more emblematic of the Cloward–Piven presidency of the prodigal community organizer who has already run up as much debt as all previous presidents through Bill Clinton combined than the Deadbeat in Chief having his credit card rejected?

Obama revealed Friday that his credit card was rejected when he went to pay for his meal at a New York restaurant during the U.N. General Assembly gathering last month.

“Turns out I guess I don’t use it enough,” so the payment wouldn’t go through, Mr. Obama explained.

Obama paying his own way is certainly a rare occurrence.

Too bad no responsible person is in a position to put a hold on the federal government’s credit. The skyrocketing deficit indicates that Obama and his collaborators have no intention of making good on the massive debt. A freeze on Big Government’s credit spending would save future generations from the gross injustice of having to spend their entire lives paying the bill for our indulgence in moonbattery.

Judge Jeanine: Does CDC Really Have Your Back on Ebola?

Jeanine Pirro lets the Regime have it with both barrels on the Ebola debacle:


At this point it is impossible to deny that either (a) Obama is incompetent to such an extreme that he must be removed from power immediately for reasons of national security, or (b) Obama is deliberately seeing to it that the American public is infected with Ebola for ideological and/or strategic reasons.

In either case, quite a few of us are liable to pay for his tragic and disgusting election with our lives.

Envirokooks Can’t Keep a Toy Inflated Using Energy Sources They Want to Impose on the Rest of Us

A use has finally been found for envirokooks. Entertainment:

As even ecokooks know perfectly well, the energy sources they champion and use the government to impose are inefficient and unreliable (renewable sources that actually work, like hydroelectric dams, are frowned upon by moonbats). “Renewable energy” is a sanctimonious pose, not a reasonable approach to meeting our energy needs.

Nonetheless, environazis want to restrict our access to efficient and reliable energy sources. It would take an expert psychiatrist to unravel their motives, but a layman can easily recognize that they are not benevolent.

Victim Sues Hospital Over Pink Panties

America is being fundamentally transformed, all right, but not only by Obama and his collaborators. Jackpot justice and a practice of rewarding and even honoring victims at the expense of everyone’s self-respect is producing a very different culture. Pride and rugged individualism aren’t the only casualties. We are losing our sense of humor too:

A man is suing Delaware Surgery Center for damages after allegedly waking from a colonoscopy medical procedure in women’s pink underwear.

Andrew Walls, 32, from the city of Dover, Delaware, was under anesthesia after the colonoscopy at the city’s Delaware Surgery Center in October 2012 when he claims he was pranked, The News Journal reported.

“When the plaintiff recovered from the effects of the anesthesia administered by defendants, he awoke to realize that while he was unconscious pink women’s underwear had been placed on his body,” according to the civil damages suit filed in New Castle County Superior Court.

“When the plaintiff initially presented for his colonoscopy he had not been wearing pink women’s underwear and at no time did the plaintiff voluntarily, knowingly or intentionally place the pink women’s underwear upon himself.”

Shades of Abu Ghraib. This may qualify as a crime against humanity.

A jury probably consisting of irresponsible morons will decide how many $millions the pink panties are worth. Healthcare costs will get yet another nudge upward for the rest of us so as to cover the windfall.

This wasn’t just some guy off the street. The looter victim was apparently well known to the pranksters.

Walls was an employee of Delaware Surgery Center when he underwent the colonoscopy.

No one is more fun to pull a prank on than a coworker with no sense of humor. But in liberal utopia, there won’t be any more pranks. They lack sensitivity.

Obama Administration Informs the Public on Whether It Is Safe to Ride a Bus

We are told that rather than fret, we should just trust the federal government to tell us what we need to know to keep our families safe from the Ebola that Obama has refused even to attempt to keep out of the country. Let’s give it a try.

Question: Is it safe to ride a bus?

Answer:

Dr. Tom Frieden, director of 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.

Say what?

The update comes more than a week after President Barack Obama issued a video message to Ebola-stricken countries in West Africa, telling residents they “cannot get [Ebola] through casual contact like sitting next to someone on a bus.” The message has been widely circulated online and is currently posted on multiple U.S. embassy websites.

On Tuesday, a spokesperson for the CDC told CNSNews.com that it’s “not impossible” to contract Ebola from an infected person on a bus, particularly if the healthy person touches a contaminated object.

Okay, let’s try again. Maybe the State Department has a clue:

Nope, no clue there.

Too bad doubletalk, obfuscation, evasion, and outright lies can’t cure Ebola. Obama and his gang of bumbling leftist ideologues would have the situation well in hand.

Porous Borders and Ebola

If the need for secure borders wasn’t obvious before, it certainly is in light of the spread of Ebola:

On Thursday, Dr. Thomas Frieden, the director of the Centers for Disease Control, admitted that Africa’s porous land borders made the Ebola crisis worse. …

“The porous land borders among countries and remoteness of many villages have greatly complicated control efforts,” Frieden conceded in his prepared statement, noting that there have been Ebola cases “imported into Nigeria and Senegal from the initially-affected” West African nations.

Can you think of a country outside Africa that has a porous land border that has probably led to the spread of lethal disease? Here’s a clue:

Since October of last year, there have been at least 66,500 illegal immigrant unaccompanied juveniles who have been detained at the border. That number does not include adults, those who were accompanied, and illegal immigrants who entered the country. Illegal immigrant juveniles have been released across the country. As journalist Sharyl Attkisson has noted, the Obama administration’s lack of transparency regarding the Enterovirus outbreak that coincided with the arrival of illegal immigrants from Central America and has killed at least five children has left Americans wondering if the summer’s flood of illegal immigrants was responsible for spreading that virus.

If you think the flow of illegal aliens is massive now, wait until Ebola inevitably hits Latin America, and everybody who even thinks they might get it heads north for free healthcare.

Friedan says we should let potential Ebola vectors continue to pour in from West Africa through our airports, because that way we could potentially keep track of them and the thousands of people they interact with. The alternative, says Friedan, is to let them sneak across the undefended border.

Wrong. The alternative is the defend our border. Now we have a more urgent reason than ever.

Since Ebola Outbreak, Obama Administration Has Made It Easier for West Africans Who Come to America

The Obama Administration has gone beyond simply refusing to take the obvious common sense measure of restricting flight into the USA from countries where Ebola is raging out of control. It is actually going out of its way to encourage, facilitate, and expedite the immigration of potential vectors from these countries into ours — specifically because of Ebola:

[US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS, a division of Obama fundraiser Jeh Johnson's Department of Homeland Security)] has been waiving fees, expediting the immigration process, and allowing extensions of visas for anyone coming from the three designated Ebola-stricken countries, provided that they are in the United States. The Free Republic blog reported that the law firm of Edward W. Neufville, III, LLC, a Washington, D.C. area immigration firm, added a section to their website two days after the USCIS announcement, with more details about how these relief measures would work, including extensions of the time that the foreign national could remain in the United States, additional work permit opportunities, and even forgiveness for failure to appear at required interviews or submit required evidence. According to the Neufville firm, the new USCIS policies mean that “[i]ndividuals from Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea currently in the United States may apply for an extension or change in status due to the Ebola Outbreak, even if their request is filed after the authorized period of admission has expired.” Otherwise stated, this means that someone from one of those countries who illegally overstayed their visa can now apply for an extension, or someone who arrived illegally can apply to get legal status.

Thomas Eric Duncan, the Liberian man who died from Ebola earlier this month, had traveled to the United States after his visa was approved in August, the same month that USCIS announced the new relief measures. One of the concerns many have had about the Ebola crisis is the lure those in the affected countries would — quite understandably — feel toward the advanced sanitation standards and medical care available in American hospitals, similar to how open borders, social services, and in-state tuition have been criticized as creating “magnets” for immigrants to illegally cross the U.S. – Mexican border. These specific USCIS policies do not apply to those who are not yet in the United States and are seeking a visa to leave Guinea, Liberia, or Sierra Leone, but the more generous rules that await them once they arrive likely create further incentives for them to attempt to travel here.

Even as other African countries seal their borders against the Ebola Zone, Obama steadfastly refuses to prevent potential vectors from continuing to pour into the country from Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea. As Doug Ross emphasizes, once they get here, they are home free, and qualify for the special treatment outlined above.

If thousands of Americans end up dying of Ebola, Obama will be remembered for two words. They won’t be hope and change. They will be treason and genocide.
