"We're being had. Again. " Andrew McCarthy #Ebola

Battlefield USA has a new heading on his website - "American Irony In The Land Of Freedumb"

Yes, I would say that just about covers it. Our terrorist-in-chief continues his jihad on America. Today's flavor - Ebola! With the help of the main stream media (and if history is our guide) we will go freely and dumbly into that good night!

Andrew McCarthy in saying "We're being had. Again." was not speaking of Ebola but the Khorosan Group. The quote however, is just as appropriate to what is coming down with Ebola. We're being had. Again.

On 9/26 Jon Rappoport posted - Ebola: what op is being planned for Western nations? Please read, the life you save may be your own or that of a loved one.

In this article, I'm not going to try to recapitulate everything I've written about Ebola so far.
I'll outline two possible scenarios for the near future in Western nations. Scenario 1 and Modified Scenario 1. Both would be planned ops.

#1: Announcement: a vaccine is available. Authorities will declare who should take it. In an extreme situation, people in certain sectors will be commanded to take it. And if they don't, they will be quarantined, regardless of their health status.

Quarantines in selected areas would be enforced by police and troops stationed on streets, taking people to their homes, ordering them to stay in their homes. In those areas, businesses would be ordered to close.

Flights in and out of selected areas would be shut down.

The vaccine would be called safe, "according to limited tests," and "less risky than Ebola." People who fall ill or worse as a result of the vaccine would tend to be labeled as Ebola cases--"the onset of the disease was more rapid than anticipated."

"It's the disease, not the vaccine."

As part of the overall scenario, Ebola case numbers will be grossly exaggerated. In fact, most cases will be casually diagnosed from visible and general flu-like symptoms--eyeball diagnoses made by doctors and nurses at clinics, hospitals, and offices.

Blood samples taken to confirm these people's diagnosis, at labs, will shockingly, to a large degree, show no presence of Ebola--but this fact will be covered up, as it was in the case of Swine Flu in 2009 and SARS in 2003.

If no vaccine is released, then the pharmaceutical profit center will focus on medicines that "fight viruses." These drugs will be toxic and have significant adverse effects. Again, patients who fall ill will be labeled "Ebola rapid-onset."

Here is Modified Scenario #1: It can be characterized by the after-op wrap-up: "We in the West escaped by the skin of our teeth. We almost had an uncontrollable nightmare on our hands. But thanks to public-health measures and the tracking of suspected cases, we averted doom...this time." Heroes named and applauded.

No widespread quarantines. No major troop presence.

In that case, the main target of the op would turn out to be, as it is now, the West African countries. Borders sealed, chaos and massive quarantines inside, debilitation and death from a number of ongoing and long-term causes, none of which really have anything to do with Ebola:

Severe malnutrition; starvation; war; poverty; industrial pollution; contaminated water supplies; stolen farm land; overcrowding; prior toxic vaccine campaigns for yellow fever, polio, meningitis; toxic medical drugs.

All adding up to: destruction of immune systems, after which any germ passing through the territory accelerates dying. Ebola, cholera, flu, pneumocystis, measles, etc. Ebola itself is not the threat.

And if all that is not enough--perhaps the intentional introduction of a virtually undetectable chemical(s) that debilitates and kills for a limited period of time and then dissipates. The victims, of course, will be labeled "Ebola."

Meanwhile, through brokered IMF "assistance" deals and other backroom agreements--with the West African population too weak to resist--outside financiers, investors, and corporations will expand their stranglehold over the rich mineral resources and land of those countries.

My best guess at this time is we will see Modified Scenario #1, the "by the skin of our teeth we escaped" op. Western nations will not be said to be overrun with Ebola. There will not be massive and widespread quarantines in all nations.

However, enough cases will be announced to scare people.

"We had a brush with disaster. It was a close call. A few more 'links in the chain' and we would have had a firestorm on a global scale."

"Therefore, in the future, listen very closely to the medical experts. Do what they tell you to do immediately. Take your medicines. Get your vaccines, all of them, according to public-health mandated schedules."

"Those leaders who are running and monitoring health insurance programs around the world should insist that delivering medical care is contingent on recipients taking their vaccines and other drugs as ordered and prescribed."

Both Scenario #1 and its modified version are sheer reality-invention for the helpless, the mindless, the dupes, the pawns, the suckers, the rubes, and the merely uninformed.
As always, there is a vital relationship between a) those who know the truth and make it known, and b) the merely uninformed.

The number of people who wake up and realize what the op is, and refuse to participate--as they did successfully during the Swine Flu dud--can turn the tables and win.

If there is an X-factor here, you may find it through predictions of Ebola case numbers by the CDC (and the World Health Organization). If they back off a bit and modulate their estimates in a downward direction, you'll pretty much know that at worst, this will be a "skin of our teeth" op.

If the CDC keeps doubling down with its "1 million Ebola cases" insanity, we could be in for a rocky ride. The CDC always lies. But if they keep these enormous predictive lies in play, it could be a clue the US government intends to fake a whole lot of Ebola.

And that's what I'm talking about. Fakery.

To the mix we must add this from Bunkerville - Will the CDC activate emergency measures with Ebola outbreak? An executive order signed by President Obama at the end of July also allows for the "apprehension, detention, or conditional release of individuals to prevent the introduction, transmission, or spread of suspected communicable diseases."

Me thinks, The S***. Has HIT. The FAN!

Infographic on ISIS

Infographic World has put together this informative piece on ISIS and ISIL.

Click image to enlarge:

isis.jpg

As for how much confidence I have in Barack Obama's ability to lead us in this fight against ISIS, the short answer is ... not much. Given that Obama can't bring himself to admit that we are indeed at war with ISIS, authorities won't even call Islamic terrorism ... Islamic terrorism, and retired generals (they can actually speak their minds as opposed to active generals that have to soft-peddle their dissent) are saying his weak, disjointed, impractical strategy hasn't a snowball's chance in hell of working, how can any reasonable person not be deeply concerned. Add to all this the report that Obama actually rejected his general's advice.

The jihadist-in-chief has a "counterfactual worldview"?

Who'da thunk? He has not been spinning his "counterfactual worldview" for six years now?

Andrew McCarthy starts the article below with "We're being had. Again." I beg to differ. America is finally, finally waking up to the sales pitch Obama attempts with every breath! That said -

From National Review - The Khorosan Group Does Not Exist

We're being had. Again.

For six years, President Obama has endeavored to will the country into accepting two pillars of his alternative national-security reality. First, he claims to have dealt decisively with the terrorist threat, rendering it a disparate series of ragtag jayvees. Second, he asserts that the threat is unrelated to Islam, which is innately peaceful, moderate, and opposed to the wanton "violent extremists" who purport to act in its name.

Now, the president has been compelled to act against a jihad that has neither ended nor been "decimated." The jihad, in fact, has inevitably intensified under his counterfactual worldview, which holds that empowering Islamic supremacists is the path to security and stability. Yet even as war intensifies in Iraq and Syria -- even as jihadists continue advancing, continue killing and capturing hapless opposition forces on the ground despite Obama's futile air raids -- the president won't let go of the charade.

Hence, Obama gives us the Khorosan Group.

The who?

There is a reason that no one had heard of such a group until a nanosecond ago, when the "Khorosan Group" suddenly went from anonymity to the "imminent threat" that became the rationale for an emergency air war there was supposedly no time to ask Congress to authorize.

You haven't heard of the Khorosan Group because there isn't one. It is a name the administration came up with, calculating that Khorosan - the Iranian-Afghan border region -- had sufficient connection to jihadist lore that no one would call the president on it. Continue here.

And about that jihadist lore - Gypsy RavenWraithe @flippinth3raya has been exposing/educating the twitterverse on the "Raya" - the black flag of islam for five years. I picked this article up from that site in 2010. It lends lends itself to this conversation in that - the Khorosan Group may not exist, but the Khorosan/Khorasan lore certainly does. The Khorasan ideology, the opportunity to live out prophecy, is a powerful/intoxicating incentive for young men & women looking to make their mark/place in the world.

I will not insert much here except for one small paragraph which pretty much wraps up the article - Khorasan - A Muslim Once and Future Kingdom.

In general, "Khorasan" doesn't appear to function as code for a particular jihadist organization, but as a more general symbol for victorious jihad -- coming from the East, faithful to the truth, unstoppable, ushering in the Caliphate, serving the cause of the Mahdi, and thus heralding the End of Days.

Read the whole thing here. You will be much more well informed than some would want you to be.

An "indispensable" nation does not "play whack-a-mole"

So Hussein Obama told the world yesterday on "60 Minutes."

Business Insider -

In a "60 Minutes" interview Sunday evening, Obama was asked why the US is contributing such a significant portion of the military coalition against the jihadist group known as the Islamic State or ISIS. Obama responded by arguing that other countries were not stepping up.

"When trouble comes up anywhere in the world, they don't call Beijing, they don't call Moscow. They call us. That's the deal," he quipped.

When CBS' Steve Kroft pressed Obama on the relatively small contributions from some of the US' coalition partners, Obama insisted such arrangements were expected.

"That's always the case. That's always the case. America leads. We are the indispensable nation," he said. "We have capacity no one else has. Our military is the best in the history of the world." More here.

AP - Hussein Obama - But "rather than play whack-a-mole and send U.S. troops wherever this occurs, we have to build strong partnerships,"

Once again we see the world renown community organizer organizing away. America will flash thru the skies ala Superman and our "partners" will do the foot (dirty) work. Fewer American soldiers will die and the left will bask in our prowess. The non-war will go on for a very long time. The U.S. armed and trained terrorists will stay in their own back yards - no need to secure our borders.

It was time well spent. Underline, emphasis, bold! - ISIS and fear porn

I found the hour to watch this video over a three day time period. It was time very well spent. Underline, emphasize, bold! NOT touched on in the video but intertwined is this subject.....

@flippinth3raya retweeted @Michael_CAFC - #ISIS You can't bomb extremism out of existence but you can make a lot of money making bombs and make more extremists .. and more bombs ..

Originally posted on Battlefield USA - You better be afraid!: As bombs start dropping in Syria and Iraq, the world is once again being asked to cower in fear of a shadowy terror group that most people hadn't heard of just a few months ago. But even the most cursory examination of ISIS's past, its connections, and the actors populating it reveal a very different story than the one we are being asked to believe in. Fake terrorists. Foreign backers. False flags. Meet the new boogeyman, same as the old boogeyman.

President of the United States MIA

Accepting the job as President of the United States requires that one take the Oath of Office: "I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."

When a man, example Hussein Obama, swears (as he did) to uphold the Constitution, and subsequently repeatedly breaks that promise, his oath can be seen as nothing less than a lie.

There are millions who voted for him who now wonder why he even bothered, but the obvious answer is that he would not have been allowed thru the White House doors had he not made that pledge. The office of the President, though occupied, is not what The People intended. Our survival demands an answer to the question - who/what does now reside within those walls?

Muslim Convert Commits 'Workplace Violence', Beheads Woman At Food Plant

Alton Nolan Muslim Beheader.jpg

As we've learned to expect, authorities are saying it has no link to terrorism and are calling this savage and cowardly beheading of 54 year-old Colleen Hufford ... "workplace violence". According to authorities, there was no relation between the suspect and the two victims.

Yes he had been recently fired from the plant but even the most fervent of Muslim apologists must admit that beheading someone is a characteristic essentially unique to Islamists, the murderer recently converted to Islam, and has reportedly tried recently to convert co-workers to the same sicko religion.

KFOR reported:

[...] Officials with the Moore Police Department say the FBI is now involved in the investigation related to a brutal attack of workers at a food distribution plant.

Sgt. Jeremy Lewis says the alleged suspect, 30-year-old Alton Nolen had just been fired when he drove to the front of the business, hit a vehicle and walked inside.

He walked into the front office area where he met 54-year-old Colleen Hufford and began attacking her with a knife.

Sgt. Lewis confirms the type of knife used in the attack is the same kind used at the plant.

Lewis confirms that Hufford was stabbed several times and that Nolen "severed her head."

At that point, Lewis claims Nolen met 43-year-old Traci Johnson and began attacking her with the same knife.

Officials say at that point, Mark Vaughn, an Oklahoma County reserve deputy and a former CEO of the business, shot him as he was actively stabbing Johnson.

"He's a hero in this situation," Sgt. Lewis said, referring to Vaughn. "It could have gotten a lot worse."

Authorities say it appears Nolen was attacking employees at random. ...

[...] The FBI is now looking into Nolen's background after his former co-workers said he tried to convert them to Islam after recently converting himself.

The piece goes on to make the ridiculous statement that "At this time, it is not known if the suspect's beliefs played a role in the attack."

Nolen has a criminal history that dates back to 2011 that includes possession of a controlled substance, escape from detention and assault and battery on a police officer.

Interesting related read:

The act of beheading another human being has to be an example of man striving to reach his lowest common denominator within humanity. Many Americans are completely unaware that beheadings are not just something that takes place "somewhere over there." In reality, there have actually been many cases of beheadings in the U.S. over the past decade, although you would never know it by observing the main stream media. Almost all of these cases are suppressed or outright censored by government officials, agencies and media elites. The primary reason for this being the "religion" of those carrying out the beheadings. Islam. Our current administration does not wish to disrupt the false-indoctrination of Islam being a peaceful and loving religion.
Much more here ...

(Remember Nidal Hasan?)

An interview with Daniel Greenfield - ISIS Rising

The question posed was - "How do we survive?....What is the one thing you can tell people to do to prepare for the decade?"

".....common sense means dealing with reality. The various threats that we are going to face, some of can be predicted, some of them can't be predicted, but what we can do is always stick close to reality, pay attention to what's really going on, and then we can be flexible and adapt to whatever is happening. It's the people who don't, who aren't in touch with common sense, who aren't in touch with reality, who aren't really paying attention to what's going on but who plug everything into their ideology, they are the ones who are a real danger."

Joseph Curl: Obama's breathtaking naivete at the United Nations

obama-unjpeg-09f28_c0-213-5008-3132_s561x327.jpg

Joseph Curl writes at The Washington Times:

[...] President Obama on Wednesday delivered a speech at the United Nations filled with his usual soaring rhetoric of global collectivism and the importance of "international norms." But the president also displayed a shocking naivete about global affairs, religion, Islam - a Pollyannaish interpretation on the state of the world and America's role in it.

[...] To Mr. Obama, there's no global conflict of ideology, just "pervasive unease in our world." To him, the strife is merely the "failure of our international system to keep pace with an interconnected world." And to him, "it is one of the tasks of all great religions to accommodate devout faith with a modern, multicultural world."

[...] Simply believing something doesn't make it so. The president's desire for a world in which nations talk openly about their true feelings, perhaps share a good cry together, and sing kumbaya around the campfire, is the height of naivete.

So is this passage of his speech: " ... the United States is not and never will be at war with Islam. Islam teaches peace. Muslims the world over aspire to live with dignity and a sense of justice. And when it comes to America and Islam, there is no us and them, there is only us."

But Islam and the holy Koran on which Muslim militant groups like al Qaeda and the Islamic State base their actions do call for the extermination of all who do not follow Islam, do demand that followers kill anyone who leaves the religion, do subjugate women. For the record, the Koran contains more than 100 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers. ...

Read the rest HERE.

Curl's assessment is, of course, spot-on. Obama's naivete is simply jaw-dropping. In his speech before the United Nations on Wednesday he even quoted controversial Muslim cleric Sheikh Abdallah whose organization has endorsed the terror group Hamas and supported a fatwa condoning the murder of U.S. soldiers in Iraq.

Meanwhile, as we are stuck with this incompetent numbskull to lead America in its fight against ISLAMIC extremism for 2 more years, competent qualified critics are saying that U.S. airstrikes on ISIL and the Khorasan Group are weak and insufficient. One retired Army Major General noted that without more intensive strikes, over time the enemy learns to obviate the killing effects and becomes used to seeing planes orbiting overhead. Also, of course, he learns to hide and dig in. So if strikes come in drips, then the effects are more aggravating than lethal.

Bottom line, sit back and buckle-up America. Get ready and brace yourself as Islamic terrorism continues to grow pretty much undeterred. That is, until we get a qualified, competent, leader in the White House.

Is This The Reason For Eric Holder's Resignation?

On the other hand ... there are so many other possibilities, one of which likely has to do with the midterms.

Finally, we're going to be able to say buh-bye to a race-baiting, overt, political operative of the WH that is without a doubt the most corrupt (and most racially devisive) attorney general in American history. He has served his racially-divisive master well. Unfortunately, he screwed truth, freedom, and America in the process.

John Hinderaker at Powerline put it this way:

"Attorney General Eric Holder announced his resignation this morning. He will stay on until a successor is nominated and confirmed. Holder has been a poor Attorney General. He will be remembered for Fast and Furious, consistently stonewalling Congress, and "civil rights" activism-which, however, had little to do with civil rights. Holder promoted gay marriage, refused to defend the Defense of Marriage Act, and did his best to enable voter fraud."
Meanwhile, race-baiter Al Sharpton says he's helping the White House pick the next attorney general.

What could possibly go wrong?

"Wake up America. You will continue to be raped, pillaged and economically strip-mined until..."

In an earlier post today on the CDC, Ebola etc., I linked to this article because the same strategy/tactics being used on Syria are being used to "sell" America that government MUST save us from all these new diseases we are seeing or expect to see on our shores here pretty quick. A "must" read which ends with this warning - "Wake up America. You will continue to be raped, pillaged and economically strip-mined until you stand up for yourselves, but for now, it appears the fetal position suits you just fine."

From Zero Hedge - US Propaganda Enters Into Insane, Irrational Overdrive In Attempt to "Sell" War In Syria

Thanks to a dizzying barrage of lies, mainstream media fear-mongering and a couple of beheadings, the Obama Administration finally achieved its long sought after war in Syria. The tactic that proved most effective in mobilizing the American public back into a shivering, post-9/11 fetal position, was the same tactic used by elites in the UK to convince Scotland against voting for independence. That tactic, as I detailed in a recent post, is fear.

However, fear in itself is not enough. It must be coupled with endless slogans and misdirection by the mainstream media and politicians. It must lead the public to subconsciously embrace a thought process that is completely irrational. Such tactics can be labeled propaganda, and it results in a public suddenly supporting a war it strongly opposed only a year ago. All it takes is a little repackaging. Propaganda allows those who profit from war to push the American public into a tizzy of trepidation based on a couple of beheadings from ISIS, while not batting an eye over the daily beheadings that were simultaneously occurring in Saudi Arabia.

So the power structure and its impotent puppet, Barack Obama, intentionally pushed the American public into a frenzy of fear and finally got their little war. Nevertheless, serious people immediately began to call into question two very significant issues with respect to the aggression.

First, it appeared clear to almost everyone without a biased penchant for overseas death and destruction, that the war is completely unconstitutional and illegal no matter how you slice it. As I highlighted in the post, Obama's ISIS War is Not Only Illegal, it Makes George W. Bush Look Like a Constitutional Scholar:

But the 2001 authorization for the use of military force does not apply here. That resolution -- scaled back from what Mr. Bush initially wanted -- extended only to nations and organizations that "planned, authorized, committed or aided" the 9/11 attacks.

Not only was ISIS created long after 2001, but Al Qaeda publicly disavowed it earlier this year. It is Al Qaeda's competitor, not its affiliate.

Mr. Obama may rightly be frustrated by gridlock in Washington, but his assault on the rule of law is a devastating setback for our constitutional order. His refusal even to ask the Justice Department to provide a formal legal pretext for the war on ISIS is astonishing.

Senators and representatives aren't eager to step up to the plate in October when, however they decide, their votes will alienate some constituents in November's midterm elections. They would prefer to let the president plunge ahead and blame him later if things go wrong. But this is precisely why the War Powers Resolution sets up its 60-day deadline: It rightly insists that unless Congress is willing to stand up and be counted, the war is not worth fighting in the name of the American people.

So that's glaring problem number one. The second problem, which I highlighted in the post, The American Public: A Tough Soldier or a Chicken Hawk Cowering in a Cubicle? Some Thoughts on ISIS Intervention, is that:

Did you know that the US government's counterterrorism chief Matthew Olson said last week that there's no "there's no credible information" that the Islamic State (Isis) is planning an attack on America and that there's "no indication at this point of a cell of foreign fighters operating in the United States"? Or that, as the Associated Press reported, "The FBI and Homeland Security Department say there are no specific or credible terror threats to the US homeland from the Islamic State militant group"?
