Amenper: La desnudez del Emperador
Siempre me ha fascinado el cuento de Hans Christian Andersen sobre “Las Nuevas Ropas del Emperador” ("Emperor’s New Clothes") y las perspicacias que revela sobre la naturaleza humana. Algunos estafadores de habla rápida convencieron al emperador de que le harían un Nuevo traje que sería más fabuloso que todos los que el había poseído. Los materiales usados serían tan raros y costosos que el sería la envidia del reino ¡La esencia de la historia es que ellos fueron tan convincentes en su descripción del traje totalmente inexistente que el creyó en su realidad a pesar de que él no podía verlo! Para exhibir sus nuevos adornos, el emperador realizó una procesión desde su castillo y atravesando las aldeas de su reino. Sus súbditos reales le hacían reverencia cuando el pasaba y le felicitaban por su nueva ropa, ¡pero el asunto entero fue expuesto cuando un niño exclamó que el emperador estaba desnudo!
El emperador Obama estaba desnudo aunque la prensa complaciente hiciera alabanzas de su bonito traje.
Pero el emperador siguió desnudo hasta ayer cuando los votantes como el niño del cuento expusieron su desnudez.
En la conferencia de prensa Obama dijo con su acostumbrada falta de respeto a la verdad, que había prestado oído a los que votaron en las elecciones.
Después tratando de parecer calmado y articulado  dijo que lo que el pueblo quería era que trabajaran más duros para cumplir las ambiciones de todos los americanos.
Y con una cara de sinceridad a pesar de su desnudez, felicitó a los nuevos oficiales electos.
Entonces después de hablar inconsecuentemente de Ebola, Isis y otros problemas, sin decir nada substancial o coordinado, dijo que trabajaría para los próximos dos años "tan productivamente como sea posible," diciendo que está "ansioso" encontrar formas de trabajar junto con los republicanos en diferentes temas estadounidenses sobre todos los problemas.
Entonces en su desnudez que ya todos pueden ver, lanzó la bomba.
"El Congreso pasará algunas leyes que no puedo firmar. "Estoy seguro de que voy a tomar algunas acciones que no gustará a algunos en el Congreso, dijo Obama”.
“Sin embargo, añadió, "como" Presidente, tengo la responsabilidad única para tratar de arreglar los pueblo como mejor considere posible”.
El emperador sigue desnudo, lo que ya nadie puede decir que tiene un traje muy bonito, porque ya los votantes denunciaron su desnudez. 

Amenper: Scott Walker Para Presidente
Durante meses,  los nombres de potenciales aspirantes republicanos a la Presidencia han venido por caminos desde Iowa a Nueva Hampshire a Carolina del sur, hasta la Florida, sentando las bases para una prematura campaña de la aspiración presidencial para el 2016 .
Entre ellos, el gobernador de Nueva Jersey Chris Christie, el gobernador de Texas Rick Perry, Jeb Bush y Paul Rand  y Marco Rubio.
Pero no Scott Walker, el gobernador republicano de Wisconsin, ha estado muy ocupado prestando atención a su propia reelección de gobernador.
 El miércoles, Walker ganó la carrera por un margen cómodo. — Scott Walker, el republicano que se hizo un nombre nacional por chocar con los sindicatos, ganó un segundo mandato como gobernador de este estado el martes, manteniendo viva la posibilidad de que podría estar entre los candidatos a la Presidencia en 2016. 
 Los republicanos comenzaron mencionarlo entre una lista de posibles candidatos a la Presidencia en el año 2013.
El éxito de Mr. Walker en empujar a través de una agenda conservadora, sobreviviendo al desafío de estar  en un estado que favoreció dos veces presidente Obama, esto le daba un currículum superior entre los republicanos consideraba que estaban aspirando a la Casa Blanca.
Sin embargo, Walker necesitaba ganar un segundo mandato como gobernador el martes para seguir siendo viable en ese sentido, y algunos analistas políticos dijeron que un margen decisivo de la victoria era necesaria para reforzar el caso para un futuro presidencial. 
La victoria de Walker después de una intensa campaña de maltrato en lo que fue su tercera victoria electoral en tan sólo cuatro años. En el 2012, fue decisiva, y se convirtió en el primer gobernador de la nación que haya podido sobrevivir a una elección de destitución.
En un encendido discurso de victoria de  10 minutos  Walker describió los desafíos de los últimos meses, así como las de los últimos años, aparentemente refiriéndose a su batalla con los sindicatos y la posterior retirada.
 "Había un grupo de Washington — los intereses especiales en Washington — que creía que podían gastarse  un montón de dinero y un montón de tiempo en el estado y de alguna forma convencer a la gente de este estado a estar en contra de algo," Mr. Walker dijo a cientos de partidarios en un centro de exposición en el State Fair Park.
En su discurso de Victoria, Walker no dejó atrás sus ideas conservadoras, destacando una medida del éxito guiada "por cuántas personas ya no son dependientes de gobierno".
Una candidatura presidencial podría incorporar esos mismos temas, que han sido pan de cada día para  Walker.
No tendría que reinventar su persona, Walker es un genuino conservador con referencias y una historia que lo prueba.
Pero si decide lanzarse a la aspiración, su pivote estratégico tendrá que ser rápido y decisivo
Creo que vamos a verlo a él y su equipo recargar sus baterías hasta fin de año y luego salir a pelear después del primero de año,
Políticamente, tendrá uno de las historias más fuertes que contar. en sus luchas contra los liberales de Washington, los sindicatos y la mayoría liberal en su estado.
Aunque Walker enfrentaría a una desventaja organizacional temprana en las  primarias, en los primeros estados, tales como New Hampshire y Iowa, donde otros republicanos han comenzado ya a la red, Walker estaría en una posición sólida en términos de reconocimiento del nombre y marca de identificación como conservador
Y el reconocimiento no es por tibieza, es por el fuego que ha demostrado en sus batallas.
Una reciente encuesta de Bloomberg/Des Moines Register de potenciales candidatos presidenciales republicanos mostraron 4 por ciento de los residentes de Iowa apoyando Walker primero entre todos los demás, en un empate con  Jeb Bush.
 Walker es respetado entre muchos donantes republicanos, que recuerdan a la batalla antisindical que desarrolló durante su elección de destitución.
Sigue siendo un héroe para enfrentarse y derrotar a los sindicatos,.
Esto es como un efecto secundario positivo, esta es una historia política que habría sido relegada al olvido si Walker hubiera perdido el martes.  Quizás hubiéramos perdido al  candidato que se puede convertir en el próximo presidente de los Estados Unidos.

Amenper: El Discurso de Obama
El discurso de Obama dentro de 2 horas se puede saber desde ahora. 
No hay que ser un adivino o robarse el teleprompter. 
Ya los comentaristas complacientes de Obama no los han dicho. Ellos conocen a los que le escriben lo que tiene que decir en el teleprompter. 
Aunque a veces a los escritores se le olvida algo, como en el caso del chiste del orinal, que se olvidaron decirle que orinara adentro y  Obama se orina afuera.
Pero lo que Obama tiene que leer hoy en el teleprompter es:
"Es el deber de los republicanos el trabajar ahora con el ejecutivo (Obama) para el avance del país" 
Muy patriótico, muy bonito, pero ¿Que es lo que nos están diciendo? 
O sea que antes Obama no trabajaba con el congreso, no trataba de llegar a ningún acuerdo, y cuando el congreso aprobaba algo el Senado se lo tumbaba.
Y siempre echándole la culpa al congreso de que no hacía nada y era un impedimento para el progreso de la nación. 
Nos decían que el congreso tenía una reputación bajísima en las encuestas, y que nadie quería al congreso.
Ahora los votantes no sólo han ratificado al congreso, pero han añadido 12 congresistas, evitando la posibilidad de filibusterismo.
Al que han rechazado ha sido a Obama, eligiendo una mayoría en el senado. 
Ahora Obama quiere también que trabajen con él, antes a la fuerza y ahora pidiéndolo como un gesto de patriotismo, todo es lo mismo, que hay que trabajar con él, lo que quiere decir es que hay que aprobar lo que él quiere que se apruebe.
¿Entonces Barry, elecciones para qué? 
Si al final lo que se hará es lo que Obama quiere, entonces ¿para qué se eligieron a los nuevos oficiales? 
Creo que esto es lo que se le olvida a los escritores del discurso de Obama, por esto lo que está haciendo Obama cuando lea el discurso es meandose afuera, los republicanos tienen que pararse firmes, porque esto es lo que le demandaron los votantes cuando le dieron la victoria.
Espero que los legisladores no caigan en la trampa, no lo creo, no mientras existan hombres como Ted Cruz en el Senado. 
No creo que Ted Cruz deba de aspirar a presidente, creo que la controversia de su nacimiento en Canadá, traería una distracción que no necesitamos.  Pero me gustaría mucho ver a Ted como el líder del nuevo senado, esto mantendría a los demócratas honestos, si es que algunos de ellos pueden ser honestos.

Amenper: Actos ilegales de George W. Bush, causan victoria Republicana
El presidente Obama hablará a la nación esta tarde a las 2 PM, sobre las elecciones de anoche.
Según fuentes no identificadas se ha filtrado que el tema del discurso será el demostrar que la derrota de los candidatos demócratas se debe a una conspiración corrupta de su predecesor George W. Bush.
Parece que se ha descubierto de un grupo de camisas pardas nazistas en conjunción con miembros del KKK, organizados por Bush, crearon milicias para impedir que los negros ejecutaran su derecho al voto, como lo han hecho a través de los años.
Chris Matthews en su programa de la cadena MSNBC presentó pruebas en que se ve a George W Bush con el atuendo del KKK. 
Aunque como tiene la capucha realmente no se puede ver quien es la persona en la foto, Chris asegura que la persona es Bush, porque él lo sabe de buena tinta.
Según las fuentes no identificadas, la foto fue presentada a Matthews por el Reverendo Al Sharpton.
El reverendo Al Sharpton dice que dado los acontecimientos revelados, se deben cancelar todos los resultados de las elecciones, para poder elegir a personas de color en las mayorías del Senado y Congreso. 
Es hora de que un negro pueda ocupar puestos de importancia en el gobierno de Estados Unidos.  Preguntado si ya no había personas de color en puestos de importancia como la presidencia de la república, Sharpton, después de una pausa, respondió, creo también que se le deben de aumentar los sueldos a los jugadores negros de los equipos deportivos que reciben sueldos de miseria por su color..
El vicepresidente Joe Biden que había pronosticado una arrolladora victoria Demócrata declaró en una entrevista que su predicción había sido considerado bajo la condición que votaran los negros, y los blancos se quedaran en su casa para nivelar los años de discriminación y racismo. De esa manera sus  cálculos eran correctos.  La supresión del voto ha sido la causa de esta aberración electoral.  Tenemos que seguir luchando para la restauración de la economía y de las libertades que están siendo violadas por George W. Bush y sus cómplices conservadores.

Amenper: El Problema con los Negros
Tengo que reconocer como aceptable- aunque no lo comparto, el hecho de que  muchas de las personas  del pueblo americano no quieran ni siquiera considerar un candidato negro para presidente.. 
 Esto es algo que es el resultado de lo que llamo el síndrome de Jackie Robinson a la inversa.
Branch Rickey tuvo la visión de escoger a Jackie Robinson para ser el negro que rompiera la barrera de la raza en las grandes ligas.  Pudo haber escogido a Schatzel Paige que era el mejor jugador negro de su época. Paige era lo que llamamos un negro mono, alguien de un carácter volátil y arrogante, pudo haber escogido a Don Newcombe que era un gran pitcher, pero era un negro arrogante, que vimos en Cuba.
Newcombe tuvo problemas con el manager Fermín Guerra cuando era manager del Almendares en Cuba y en los Estados Unidos, donde tuvieron encuentros acalorados que llegaron hasta peleas físicas.
Newcombe y Paige eran los Obamas del baseball, si Rickey los hubiera escogido, para romper la barrera del color, el rechazo racial del público no hubiera permitido que se consolidaran en los equipos, como pasó en Cuba con Newcombe, y después hubiera sido prácticamente imposible haber considerado a un negro de nuevo para jugar en las Grandes Ligas, hubieran pasado muchos años para tratar de volver a ensayar la integración racial en el deporte.
Lo mismo pasa con estos negros arrogantes como Obama, Holder, Sharpton, Jessee Jackson, y todos los militantes negros que están destruyendo su propia raza con su conducta.
Mia Love la primera mujer negra republicana en el senado lo dijo hoy, lo ha dicho Ben Carson, Clarence Thomas el primer negro en el tribunal supremo, y Condoleza Rice la primera mujer negra en el cargo de Secretaria de Estado, todos republicanos, todos conservadores, son nuestros negros, son personas decentes, educados y capacitados no son racistas no son arrogantes.
Son los Jackie Robinson de la vida política de los Estados Unidos.
Ellos como dijo Mia Love son víctimas de la conducta de estos militantes negros que han creado una aversión a la raza negra con sus diatribas contra los blancos.
Lo que le pasa a los blancos hoy en día es una reacción humana de defensa, es comprensible, y debido a Obama pasarán muchos años antes que un negro pueda considerar el aspirar de nuevo a la presidencia de Estados Unidos. Este es el daño que Barack Hussein Obama ha hecho a la raza de su padre.  Cuando veo a estos negros decente, lo siento por ellos, no tienen la culpa, pero es una dolorosa realidad.

I can't imagine what's changed....

Suddenly, inexplicably, a very cordial Harry Reid wants to ‘work together’

By Robert Laurie  
Harry Reid spent the last few years attacking the GOP in every conceivable way. He’s compared them to Nazis, accused them of wanting to kill people, indicated that deep down they hate their own country, and claimed that they desperately want to flood America’s water supply with mercury and arsenic.
At the same time, he refused to acknowledge Republican alternatives to Democrat bills, wouldn’t let anything come to the floor for a vote, and killed every shred of debate whenever he possibly could.
To be blunt, if he reached across the aisle, you could be sure there was a knife in his hand.
Now, he’s hoping that everyone can “work together.”  Check out the ridiculous statement he released:
“I’d like to congratulate Senator McConnell, who will be the new Senate Majority Leader. The message from voters is clear: They want us to work together. I look forward to working with Senator McConnell to get things done for the middle class.”
Once you’re done laughing, you might take a moment to wonder why this crooked little man was previously so disinterested in cooperation.
Where does this newfound spirit of togetherness come from?
What is different today?
What could possibly have changed?
I don’t know what it is, but it must be something….

Obama’s One-Word Response To Republican Domination Sums Up The Feelings Of Dems Everywhere

Barack Obama's view of the elections that swept Republicans to decisive control...

NORVELL ROSE  
If the New York Times is to be believed, Barack Obama’s view of the elections that swept Republicans to decisive control of a once Democrat-dominated Capitol Hill is “irritation.”
Mr. Obama’s irritation became clear when he said publicly that even if he was not on the ballot, his policies were, a comment that Republicans gleefully wrapped around the necks of their Democratic opponents.
The Times article offered the Obama viewpoint that the electoral map was stacked against him, making Democrats underdogs from the start. So, despite, the unmistakable fact that his own party kept him off the campaign trail, the president’s political fortunes — at least in the eyes of the golfer-in-chief — were somewhat pre-destined and out of his control.
In the wake of the GOP victories as they became crystal clear on Wednesday morning, social media erupted with snarky reaction to Obama’s outlook as revealed in the New York Times article — especially the section that said Obama did not feel “repudiated” by the results of an election that he, himself, had nationalized and cast in his own image.



DAILY EVENTS FEATURED STORY

GOP TSUNAMI: REPUBLICANS TAKE THE SENATE, WIN HISTORIC HOUSE GAINS

 John Hayward
Court Says Kansas Democrats Need Not Put Candidate On Ballot
I’ll keep this post updated with some of the big results as they come in, and we’ll kick it off with one of the biggest: the current Senate Minority Leader, Mitch McConnell, has defeated Allison Grimes in Kentucky.  The funny thing is that everyone is calling McConnell’s win “unsurprising” and “expected” now, but he was supposed to be one of the more nervous Republican incumbents going into the night.  McConnell’s win looks huge; there’s a lot of counting left to be done, but he was up 14 points when the race was called.
South Carolina: Incumbent Senator Tim Scott, appointed to his seat after Senator Jim DeMint retired, has won re-election, becoming the first African American elected to the Senate from the South since Reconstruction.
Virginia: After rumblings of a possible upset brewing for Republican Ed Gillespie, the race looks to be going to Democrat incumbent Mark Warner.  West Virginia, on the other hand, became the first Republican pickup of the night for Senator-Elect Shelley Moore Capito.  This wasn’t a surprise, as she was up by double digits going into Election Day.
(Actually, as of 7:30 PM, I’m not sure if Virginia is really over yet.  Interest fact coming across the wires: Republican Ed Gillespie has a tremendous 58% favorable rating in exit polls.  That’s the kind of rating that could still produce a shocker.)
New Jersey: There was a bit of light speculation that Democrat Cory Booker might be in trouble, but the polls were never really all that close.  Booker is projected to win re-election.
Mississippi: Given all the drama that accompanied his very tight primary win, it is worth noting that Republican Senator Thad Cochran has won re-election for his 412th term.
Arkansas: The polls showed this a likely Republican pickup, and Tom Cotton did indeed defeat incumbent Democrat Mark Pryor.  That’s the second GOP pickup of the night.
New Hampshire: Scott Brown gave Jeanne Shaheen a good run for her money, but it looks like the incumbent Democrat will retain her seat.
South Dakota: After a brief spasm of Democrat interest in Mike Rounds as a potentially vulnerable Republican, he went on to win his race.  That’s GOP pickup number 3.  I’ll always remember the “Mike Rounds is in trouble” boomlet.  It was a hell of an afternoon.
As of 9PM, the Virginia race was down to a few hundred votes, Thom Tillis had closed to within one point of Kay Hagan in North Carolina, and there were rumblings of Pat Roberts in Kansas looking good against fake “independent” Greg Orman.  It seems like only yesterday liberal pundits were declaring this a boring election.
Louisiana: It looks like the election will head into a runoff between Democrat Mary Landrieu and Republican Bill Cassidy, where Cassidy is favored to win.
Colorado: Republican Cory Gardner wins, aborting the political career of Mark Udall.  GOP pickup number 4.
Montana: Steve Daines, a heavy favorite going into Election Day, becomes Republican pickup number 5.
Kansas: The night kicked into high gear when Republican incumbent Pat Roberts unexpectedly defeated fake “independent” Greg Orman, with some credit quite possibly due to a last-minute air campaign capitalizing on Vice President Joe Biden claiming that Orman would caucus with the Democrats.  Well done, Joe.
Iowa: Joni Ernst picked up the seat vacated by sexist dinosaur Tom Harkin, defeating Bruce Whossisname.
Georgia: A somewhat surprising win outside the margin of runoff for Republican David Perdue.  He was favored to win the runoff against Democrat Michelle Nunn, but he won outright on Tuesday night.  With that hope of a Democrat pickup dashed, control of the Senate passed to the Republicans.
North Carolina: Holy cow… after an intense nail-biter of a night, Thom Tillis defeated incumbent Kay Hagan to make it a Republican pickup.  You could hear Democrat jaws hitting the floor from coast to coast.  They really thought they had this one.
Coming up on midnight, and still no official call in Virginia.  Could this really happen for Gillespie?
A brief digression from the Senate contest: Republican governors won huge victories tonight as well, albeit with a couple of hair-raising close calls, such as Rick Scott hanging on in Florida.  Scott Walker won in Wisconsin, which means he’ll have been elected about fourteen times to serve two terms.  Amazingly, Republican Bruce Rauner ousted Pat Quinn in Illinois, and Charlie Baker pulled off a razor-thin win over Martha Coakley in Massachusetts.  Nathan Deal won in Georgia outside the recount margin, defeating Jimmy Carter’s grandson Jason.  A close race in Maryland turned into a surprisingly solid win for Republican Larry Hogan.  Sam Brownback, supposedly followed everywhere he went by a cloud of vultures waiting to feast upon his bones, came back in Kansas for the win.  Just about the only Republican to lose a high-profile race on Tuesday night was Governor Tom Corbett of Pennsylvania, defeated by Tom Wolf.
As for the House of Representatives… the Republicans are making history there, too.  A six to twelve seat pickup was projected, but it looks like they’ll net 15 or more, bringing them the largest House majority since the 1920s.  A sweet little House grace note on the Senate victories: defeated Democrat Senate candidate Bruce Braley lost his House seat to Republican Rod Blum as well.  Texas Republicans are also celebrating taking the state Senate seat formerly held by Wendy Davis with Tea Party candidate Konni Burton.
Virginia: After a long night of counting, the race is still “too close to call,” and will probably end up with a recount.  NBC News thinks Democrat Mark Warner ended the night slightly ahead.
Alaska: Chugging in late from a far-distant time zone, another closely-watched race yielded a Republican victory for Dan Sullivan over Democrat Mark Begich.  Sullivan looks to have won by a little over 3 points.  The race had not been officially called on Wednesday morning, as Begich refuses to concede.
Another shocker in a night full of them: the Vermont gubernatorial race ended in a deadlock between incumbent Democrat Peter Shumlin and Republican challenger Scott Milne.  Under the peculiar rules set by the state Constitution, the winner will now be chosen by a dance-off.  No, wait, I’m thinking of somewhere else… in Vermont, it’s done by a vote of the state legislature.  That’s happened before in Vermont – Shumlin actually entered the governor’s mansion on a legislature vote in 2010 – but it wasn’t supposed to happen Tuesday night.  Shumlin finished Tuesday night with more votes, so he is expected to win the tie-breaker vote and retain his seat.
Totals: On Wednesday morning, the official totals stood at 53 Republicans to 47 Democrats in the Senate, a net gain of 8 seats for the GOP.  That’s the high end of predictions for what the GOP could accomplish in the Senate midterms, and they’re not done yet – Cassidy will probably win the Louisiana runoff, and Virginia will probably still hang in the balance for a while.
The House stands at 247-183, a net Republican pickup of 14 seats, well beyond what analysts expected.  A few races in Arizona and California were not called on Tuesday night.
There are now 31 Republican governors versus 17 Democrats, with Vermont headed into Legislature deathmatch and Alaska still being counted (if Republican Sean Parnell loses, it will be to independent Bill Walker.)  That’s a net gain of four governorships for the GOP.
In addition to the races that are still in doubt, it’s time to talk about a few party flips.  Independent Senator Angus King of Maine immediately offered to caucus with the victorious Republicans.  Hopefully McConnell is shrewd enough to pick up his vote at a discount.
So… how are you liking that Democrat Party these days, Joe Manchin of West Virginia?  “The people are speaking loud and clear.  They don’t like what they’re seeing.  I don’t like what I’ve been involved with in the last four years, and I’ve been very vocal about that,” he said ominously last night, as he watched himself fade into irrelevance next to the atomic fireworks of the new Republican superstar, Senator-elect Shelley Moore Capito.  If you looked hard at Manchin, you could see bits of the MSNBC stage through him as he ghosted out.
There’s only one way to be important again, Joe, and I think we all know what it is.  Governor-elect Larry Hogan and his supporters were dancing with “martini glasses in one hand, and iPhones in the other” last night.  We have martinis, Joe.
An especially bright spot for conservatives watching the House races was the victory of Mia Love in Utah.  As the Washington Post notes, she is “the first black Republican woman -and first Haitian-American – elected to congress.”
The Post also declared that “in a wave election less about fresh Republican ideas than fervid disapproval of all things presidential, Love’s compelling personal story is an oasis.  She’s not just a black face in what’s often described as a party full of angry old white men.  She’s a path forward.”  Try saying that to Mia Love’s face and see what happens to you, Posties.  For added fun, run that wheezy Democrat tripe about a party of angry old white men past Love while Senators-elect Tim Scott, Joni Ernst, and Shelley Moore Capito are within earshot.


Ted Cruz: Voters Gave GOP a Chance, Now It Must Earn Trust

Voters may have rejected “Obama stagnation and malaise” in Tuesday’s midterm elections, but that doesn’t mean they are any happier with Republicans, Sen. Ted Cruz warned late Tuesday night.
“The fact that the people rose up and voted the Democrats out of power doesn’t necessarily mean they trust the Republicans,” Cruz told Fox News Channel. “They’ve given us another chance. But we’ve got to earn that trust.”
The Texas Republican has drawn the ire of both Democrats and establishment members of his own party with his tea party philosophy and his leading of the partial government shutdown in October 2013.

THE EBOLACARE FACTOR IN THE ELECTION

http://assets.newsinc.com/dailycaller_75x25.png?t=1406903160
For First Time Ever, People Infected With Ebola Will Be In The U.S.
President Barack Obama lied to sell Obamacare, and lately he’s using double talk to sell Ebolacare, his risky response to the virus sweeping West Africa. Sadly, he’s turning the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, once a trusted agency, into a public relations arm of the White House lie machine.
On October 23, the CDC website posted an explanation of the ways it might be possible to catch Ebola in addition to direct contact with an infected person. The website listed being sneezed or coughed on by an infected person or touching an object contaminated with the virus. The information is straight out of scientific journals. But it didn’t jibe with Obama’s repeated claim that “you cannot get it from just riding on a plane or bus.” So the CDC took it down a few days later and refused to say why.
Expect such shenanigans to backfire with voters. Likely voters rate health care second only to the economy in importance to them, according to an Associated Press poll on October 21. They also rate the government’s handling of Ebola as more important than immigration and twice as important as same-sex marriage. AP polling also shows that only a meager 35 percent of likely voters feel confident they’re getting a straight story on Ebola.
No wonder. The public knows that in Obama’s administration, lying has gone viral. That’s the real epidemic threatening the nation.
As for Ebola, the risk of getting it in the U.S. at this time is extremely low unless you work in a hospital treating an Ebola patient. Extremely low but not impossible. Here is what we know:
If an infected person coughs or sneezes, sending droplets several feet, and they land in your eye, nose or mouth, or possibly on an opening in your skin, you could get Ebola. That’s the information the CDC posted.
You might also get it sharing finger food from a common plate with someone infected, according to research in The Journal of Infectious Diseases.
What about touching a subway pole or bowling ball? Unlike staph and other bacteria, which can last for weeks on dry surfaces, viruses generally last only a few hours, at most a day or two. There is no definite research showing that people have caught Ebola that way. A 2007 study in The Journal of Infectious Diseases shows Ebola survives much longer if it is in blood — for example, on a bloody bandage, tissue or tampon. The CDC included this information in its posting, too, only seven years after it was originally published.
Then there’s the risk of using a toilet right after an Ebola-infected person has used it and flushed. Flushing sends droplets of water from the toilet bowl up into the air. Some common hospital infections are spread that way. Investigators from the University of Illinois School of Public Health see the possibility of Ebola spreading that way, too: “Regarding diarrhea … flushing emits a pathogen-laden aerosol that disperses into the air.” Think airport bathroom.
The fact is, scientists don’t know all of the ways Ebola can spread. The roughly 20 previous known outbreaks occurred in rural African villages, so research is scant. When the president says it can only be spread through direct contact, and CDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden parrots that, you may not be getting the whole story.
During an October 29 speech to the nation, Obama adopted a schoolmarm attitude, chastising those who disagree with him about quarantining health care workers for “losing their heads” and being driven by fear, not science. That’s untrue.
What we don’t know about Ebola would humble any scientist, but not the Obama administration. The exception is the Defense Department, which solicited research proposals on October 24 to get more information on how Ebola spreads.
Last week, the Associated Press hired several scientists to come up with estimates on how many cases of Ebola we’re likely to see in the U.S. The answers varied so widely, it’s clear no one knows. The AP also surveyed hospitals across the U.S. and found almost none ready to handle Ebola. This is falling on deaf ears at the White House. But Tuesday’s election results may deliver a dose of the humility that is needed.

A new day in America

Mike Needham (info@heritageaction.com) 
12:55 PM
To: lazarorgonzalez@hotmail.com
Lazaro R Gonzalez,
You and I woke up this morning to a changed America.
Republicans now control 52 and counting seats in the Senate, and expanded their majority in the House. Importantly, these majorities were won by committing to repealing Obamacare and standing for conservative priorities. Republicans also gained at the state level, picking off governorships in liberal-leaning states and strengthening conservative legislatures.
Last night bodes well for conservative ideas and the conservative movement.
I wanted to share with you three quick lessons from last night:
1. Candidates win when they campaign on conservative principles. In race after race, Republicans who won campaigned on repealing Obamacare, stopping amnesty, and restoring limited, constitutional government. Remember: just a year ago, the Establishment told us that fighting Obamacare would cost Republicans in the election.
2. The American people are frustrated with the status quo in Washington. But the Establishment is already trying to claim victory. That makes it all the more important that we fight to rein in big government and end business-as-usual cronyism in Washington, where the well-connected get favors from those in power.
3. The hard work starts now. Winning elections is important. But what you do when you win is more important still, since it enables legislative victories and future political success. We have to ensure this new crop of lawmakers sticks to their conservative campaign promises. In less than a week, Heritage Foundation and Heritage Action staff will meet with every newly-elected Representative and Senator to start building relationships. Over the coming weeks and months, we will start educating them on the issues, reinforcing them in their home districts, and pushing them to vote on principle.
I also wanted to say thank you, Lazaro R Gonzalez.
A year ago, we chose to make 2014 a "year of Action" . . . Heritage Action. We pushed for a conservative policy agenda to define the conservative effort as not only about stopping President Obama but standing for Americans who feel unheard -- and are right to feel unheard. If you compare where our movement is today to where it was the day before our Conservative Policy Summit in February, or before all your hard work this year, you should be proud.
With you at our side, Heritage Action will continue to fight for the principles that have made America great: free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom, traditional American values, and a strong national defense.
Thank you again.
Michael A. Needham
Chief Executive Officer
Heritage Action for America

IS GOP READY FOR OBAMA’S ATTORNEY GENERAL FIGHT?

 Michelle Malkin

Obama’s Deputies Release 169 Foreign Killers Into US Neighborhoods
Gird your loins, Beltway Republicans. Election Day is barely over, but the progressive left is locked and loaded for battle over President Obama’s next U.S. attorney general.
Liberals unhappy with the administration’s failure to deliver a mass illegal alien amnesty fast enough want a consolation prize. The Congressional Hispanic Caucus sent Obama a demand letter last week promoting Labor Secretary Tom Perez as Eric Holder’s replacement. Mother Jones ran with “Why Picking Tom Perez for Attorney General Would Be a Smart Move for Obama.”
California Democratic Rep. Linda Sanchez gushed to Politico: “Being around him makes me a little bit giddy. … He cares about the stuff that I care about, and he’s so articulate about it.” The “stuff” Perez cares about is the bread and butter of radical leftwing identity politics. It’s “social justice”-crusading on steroids.
Just this week, a federal judge rebuked Perez’s ambitious campaign to pervert housing discrimination laws and exploit racially disparate outcomes in order to prove manufactured bias.
“Disparate-impact” studies serve as high-octane fuel for a greedy fleet of civil-rights lawsuits. Once the numbers are cooked and disparate impact is shown, the heavy legal burden of disproving racial discrimination falls on the defendant. Lenders and insurers have forked over tens of millions of dollars in these social engineering shakedowns.
Neither Congress nor the federal Fair Housing Act embraces disparate impact theory or practice. But Perez plowed ahead anyway. Judge Richard Leon on Monday blasted Perez’s legal overreach as “hutzpah (bordering on desperation)” and described Perez’s backroom maneuvering to prevent the Supreme Court from weighing in on the scheme as “troubling.”
A congressional investigation last year found that Perez — then serving as an assistant attorney general in the Obama Justice Department — cut a deal with the city of St. Paul, Minn., to withdraw a SCOTUS appeal that could have limited Perez’s use of disparate impact tools. In exchange, the DOJ declined to intervene in two unrelated legal complaints against the city.
The quid pro quo wasn’t just full of hutzpah. It reeked of the very kind of justice-sabotaging corruption that Holder trademarked at DOJ.
Leon isn’t the only one who smells a rat. Last year, the DOJ Inspector General’s office spotlighted racialist foul play at Perez’s bureau, where “polarization and mistrust” reigned. Perez was explicitly hostile to race-neutral law enforcement and as Virginia GOP Rep. Frank Wolf summed up: The “report makes clear that the division has become a rat’s nest of unacceptable and unprofessional actions, and even outright threats against career attorneys and systemic mismanagement.”
Perez has used his power to conduct vengeful witch-hunts against police departments and advocates of strict immigration enforcement. The son of immigrants from the Dominican Republic and former special counsel for the late illegal alien amnesty champion Sen. Ted Kennedy made a career putting illegal aliens above law-abiding citizens. He is a selective enforcer of the nation’s laws. A leader of the George Soros-funded Casa de Maryland illegal alien advocacy group, Perez lobbied for in-state tuition discounts for illegal alien students, driver’s licenses and tax-subsidized day labor centers.
As I’ve reported previously, Casa de Maryland pushed for Obama’s 800,000 illegal alien deportation waivers through administrative fiat. The group opposes enforcement of deportation orders, protested post-9/11 coordination of local, state and national criminal databases, and produced a “know your rights” propaganda pamphlet for illegal aliens that depicted federal immigration agents as armed bullies making babies cry.
A post-election fight over Perez “would rally Democrats — and put Republicans on the defensive,” Mother Jones writer David Corn advised his fellow leftists, as well as “yield the extra benefit of reinforcing the negative attitudes Latinos have toward the Republican Party.”
This looks to be the new Senate Republicans’ first test of spinal fortitude. Will they fight for equal justice under the law or crumble under pressure from ethnic special interests? Will they reject the open-borders lobby or cave to race-card politics as usual? After an entire election cycle of GOP promises to buck Obama, will Senate Republican newbies deliver the goods or capitulate to craven political correctness?

HILLARY CLINTON’S ECONOMIC KNOWLEDGE IS ABYSMALLY LOW

WASHINGTON — The two-year battle for the presidency, which officially begins today, got an early start last week when Hillary Clinton gave us a dumbfounding lesson in Democratic economics, saying that businesses do not create jobs.
It was a fiery political statement that betrayed a depth of economic ignorance that will haunt her likely presidential candidacy throughout the entire 2015-16 election cycle.
“Don’t let anybody tell you that it’s corporations and businesses that create jobs,” Clinton flatly declared at a recent political rally in Boston. “You know that old theory, trickle-down economics. That has been tried, that has failed. It has failed rather spectacularly,” said the former secretary of state, who has experienced economic failure firsthand.
Remember Bill and Hillary Clinton’s Whitewater real estate investment disaster, which turned into an immense scandal of financial corruption and backroom cover-up?
Clinton later said she misspoke, adding that what she told Democrats in the People’s Republic of Massachusetts was a “short-handed” version of her real economic views.
Still, her abysmally stupid remarks were widely seen as a gaffe that her apologists said will soon be forgotten as her campaign for the White House gets fully underway.
But there is reason to believe that what she said was a revealing, unguarded look into the muddled mind of a liberal ideologue who thinks, like Barack Obama, that real job creation actually begins and ends with big government telling us how to run our economy and our businesses.
And her economic observation about where jobs come from sounded vaguely similar to one of Obama’s famous gaffes in his 2012 re-election campaign when he said, “If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”
Somebody like President Obama who, to this day, still thinks his impotent policies have created many jobs and pulled the economy out of the 2008 recession.
Clinton apparently believes Obama’s delusions, too. That $1 trillion in infrastructure spending to repair roads and bridges, and enlarge local, state and federal budgets, rescued the economy and put people back to work.
But his program failed “rather spectacularly,” to use Hillary’s words. Governments were given a lot money to spend in the hope that the money would “trickle down” to middle- and low-income Americans, the people Democrats say they most want to help.
Instead, it is widely acknowledged by economists and others that this has been the longest economic recovery since the Great Depression.
In previous decades, the average recovery period took about two years. Six years into Obama’s presidency, we’re still struggling in a so-so recovery.
Obama lives in his own little world of denial, saying the economy is better than ever, and apparently Clinton thinks so, too.
But the dark underbelly of the Obama economy tells a different story. Middle- to lower-income Americans are still tightening their belts. Good-paying full-time jobs are hard to find, especially among young adults just out of college. Income growth has slowed, and consumers are spending less, the Commerce Department says.
Equally disturbing, the labor force continues to shrink, as discouraged, long-term unemployed workers drop out of the work force. The payroll-to-population ratio is at 44 percent, says the Gallup Poll.
Gallup’s daily survey that asks people how they’re doing reveals a still-distressed economy: 41 percent say they’re “struggling,” while another 9 percent say they’re “suffering” or under “stress.”
Gallup’s surveys put the real unemployment rate at 6.3 percent, and the underemployed — people who need a full-time job but can’t find one — at nearly 15 percent.
The National Association of Realtors said this week that the share of first-time homebuyers has fallen to its lowest rate (33 percent) in 27 years.
In his Washington Post “Wonkblog,” economic analyst Matt O’Brien writes that the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office has become much more pessimistic about the economy — “revising its estimate of potential economic activity down in each of the past seven years.”
But if anyone thinks Hillary Clinton knows how to lift the underperforming U.S. economy out of its lethargy, they’d better think again. Her knowledge of economics is close to zero.
Her latest blunder “highlighted a problem that has plagued Clinton in the past: overshooting in her language when she is outside her immediate comfort zone,” says Politico reporter Maggie Haberman.
Moreover, Clinton is a huge fan of ultra-leftist, anti-free market Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, whose idea of economic policy is going after big business and the banks with more government regulation, higher tax rates, bigger stimulus spending bills, and raising the minimum wage on small businesses.
Will Hillary also champion higher taxes on business at a time when the economy remains anemic? She hinted just that at a rally last week in New York where she said, “To make America great, we need to do our part and pay our fair share.” And you know what that means.
If there’s one thing this economy doesn’t need, it’s higher job-killing taxes on business. “What we need is a critique of Keynesian economics,” says The Wall Street Journal’s Jason Riley.
“That’s what we’ve been experiencing. Government spending as a stimulus. How is that going for us? The slowest recovery in a generation or two. That’s what I would like (to) hear her defense of,” Riley told Fox News.
One job-creating idea you won’t hear Hillary defend is how her husband signed a bill the GOP sent him in his second term to cut the capital gains tax on investors. New investment in businesses soared, the economy grew, and the jobless rate plunged to less than 4 percent.
But you won’t hear a discouraging word from her about Obamanomics, either, which suggests she still thinks it’s working just fine.
