Lots of uplifting news this week, but first a trio of questions.  Are you a big fan of Eric Holder?  No?  Well, how would you like an Eric Holder on steroids?  No again?   Lastly, why is Sarah Palin answering Yes! to these questions instead?

Because that's precisely what she is doing in Louisiana. 

Zero intends to nominate Tom Perez, a racist fascist far worse than Holder for AG, should the Pubs fail to win the Senate.  And that's just for starters.  Harry Reid running the Senate for the next two years will allow Zero to run completely amok.

Yet Sarah, rather than telling the Louisiana Spoiler - Rob Maness - to stand up like a man for his country and bow out, has doubled down on her support for him.  This is ludicrously mistaken and here's why....

Elsewhere, things are looking pretty good.  This week has seen an amazing number of October Surprises - all of which have screwed Zero and the Dems.  Bad Karma has finally caught up with them.

*In Texas, hero-to-baby-killers Wendy Davis drove her gubernatorial campaign straight off a cliff with her wheelchair attack ad on Greg Abbott.  After a deluge of disgust, she doubled-down with her ridicule.  Abbott was already ahead by 14 points before Wendy's hara-kiri ads.  Wendy gives the term "politics of personal destruction" a new meaning.  Here are more examples...

Yet all of that is merely the tip of the Bad News Iceberg for the Dems this week.  Beneath that tip is...

HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF FROM EBOLA Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler   
Thursday, 16 October 2014

Americans are living in Panic City over Ebola thanks to the now-lethal incompetence of Obola Obama.

He has allowed his fascist political ideology to become homicidally criminal.  He refuses to close our southern border from illegal invasion causing epidemics and to bar entry to anyone from Ebola-stricken countries as that would be the failure of his Amnesty goal of millions of new Democrat voters.

Hundreds of children in 46 states have been infected with Enterovirus D-68, with seven deaths reported by the CDC as of 10/15.  As Jack Kelly notes today (10/16): 

"There are more than 100 enteroviruses, ranging from the common cold to polio. EV D-68 has been very rare here. (But) EV D-68 is common in Central America, from whence came the flood of illegal immigrant children. The outbreak was first reported in communities to which they were sent.  CDC refuses to connect the dots.  Why won't it?"

Now add the Ebola Panic to this.  Ebola is being called Obama's Katrina for good reason.  The frightening incompetence of Obama's CDC should terrify anyone actually sentient regarding Obamacare's government seizure of America's entire health care system.

Let's take a break from Ebola politics and talk about how to actually protect yourself from it - from Ebola specifically and from any other viral contagion.

WHY WON'T OBAMA PROTECT US FROM EBOLA AND ILLEGAL ALIEN VIRUS CARRIERS Print E-mail
Written by Jack Kelly   
Thursday, 16 October 2014

After a Liberian man brought the deadly disease to America last month, Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control, assured us: "We'll stop Ebola in its tracks." CDC has protocols in place to protect against further spread of the disease, he said.

File that assurance alongside "you can keep your health plan it you want to," and "ISIS is a jayvee team."

Our unpreparedness for an Ebola epidemic makes it all the more imperative to bar entry to people from Ebola-ravaged countries. A quarantine is a must, experts say. But President Barack Hussein Obama won't impose one.  Why not?

So far, just one person in America has died from Ebola. At least seven, mostly children, have died from Enterovirus D-68. There are more than 100 enteroviruses, ranging from the common cold to polio. EV D-68 has been very rare here. CDC has offered no explanation for this outbreak.

EV D-68 is common in Central America, from whence came the flood of illegal immigrant children. The outbreak was first reported in communities to which they were sent.  CDC refuses to connect the dots.  Why won't it?

ALL IT TAKES TO KILL OFF ISIS IS TO LET OUR MILITARY DO IT Print E-mail
Written by Jack Kelly   
Tuesday, 14 October 2014

Americans should brace themselves for a long and difficult struggle, Barack Hussein Obama said when he announced air strikes on the headquarters of the Islamic State in Syria Sept. 23.

We can't defeat Islamic radicals with military force, say others among the self-styled cognoscenti in our political and media elites, because they are motivated by an idea, and "you can't kill an idea."

The overall struggle against Islamism will take a long time, because there are so many Islamists, in so many places, in different flavors. That's why when my friend Bill Roggio started the blog that's the best source of news about developments in the struggle, he called it the "Long War Journal."

But if we actually tried to win, it wouldn't be difficult, or take very long to reduce the threat posed by the Islamic State from potentially catastrophic to something more like a nuisance. Here's how and why.

HOW BITCOIN TECHNOLOGY COULD CREATE A FAR FREER WORLD Print E-mail
Written by Matt Ridley   
Tuesday, 14 October 2014

Amid the current maelstrom of war, disease and politics, you might have not been paying much attention to bitcoin, the electronic form of money favored by radical libertarians and drug dealers. Yet it is possible that when the history of these days comes to be written, bitcoin's story will loom large.

Unnoticed except by the tech-obsessed, the technology behind bitcoin may be slowly giving birth to a brave new world, with eventual implications well beyond money.

So argues Bitcoin: The Future of Money?, a new book by Dominic Frisby, a columnist for MoneyWeek magazine published in Britain.

Frisby makes the case that it is just possible that bitcoin and its rivals - known as altcoins - and the "blockchain" technology that lies behind them have the potential to spark a radical decentralization of society itself. They could change the way governments finance themselves, make banks redundant and transform the ways companies are run.

If he is right, then the founder of bitcoin will take his place alongside the great inventors. So who is he?

IF YOU WANT MORE JOBS, DON'T PAY PEOPLE NOT TO WORK Print E-mail
Written by Richard Rahn   
Wednesday, 15 October 2014

If you pay people not to work, what do you think they will do?

In a new staff paper published by the New York Federal Reserve Bank titled "Unemployment Benefits and Unemployment in the Great Recession," the researchers found "that most of the persistent increase in unemployment during the Great Recession can be accounted for by the unprecedented extension of unemployment-benefit eligibility."

The irony here is that President Obama and the congressional Democrats kept voting to extend the unemployment benefits, which had the effect of keeping unemployment far higher for a much longer time than if they had not done so.

As the Fed researchers explained: "Our results lead us to expect that the stimulative effect of higher spending by the unemployed is largely offset by the dramatic negative effect on employment."

The artificially induced higher unemployment caused economic growth and total output to be significantly lower. The high unemployment and slow growth are major issues in the upcoming election -- all working against the interest of the Democrats, who voted for this destructive policy.

Some Democrats voted for the extended unemployment benefits in the name of compassion for the unemployed without thinking through the consequences -- particularly to themselves.

COULD THE SICKEST MAN OF EUROPE BE GERMANY? Print E-mail
Written by Ambrose Evans-Pritchard   
Wednesday, 15 October 2014

France may look like the sick of man of Europe, but Germany's woes run deeper, rooted in mercantilist dogma, the glorification of saving for its own sake, and the corrosive psychology of ageing.

"Germany considers itself the model for the world, but pride comes before the fall," says Olaf Gersemann, Die Welt's economics chief, in a new book, The Germany Bubble: the Last Hurrah of a Great Economic Nation.  (Released last month in a German edition, hopefully an English edition will soon follow.)

Mr. Gersemann says the Second Wirtschaftswunder - or economic miracle - from 2005 onwards has "gone to Germany's head". The country has mistaken a confluence of exceptional events for permanent ascendancy. It cannot continue to live off exports of capital goods to China and the BRICS as they hit the buffers, or by stealing a march on southern Europe through wage compression, a zero-sum game.

Marcel Fratzscher, head of the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW), makes a parallel critique in his new book, Die Deutschland Illusion, no translation needed.

It is the self-deception of a country "resting on its laurels," prisoner of the "household fallacy" that economies are like family budgets, and falsely reassured by the misplaced flattery of foreigners who rarely look under the bonnet at the German engine below.

THE PHYSICAL CASE FOR HAPPINESS Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Joel Wade   
Friday, 17 October 2014

We are all familiar with the basic guidelines for good health: exercise, eat right - more fruits and veggies, less red meat, fewer calories, more fiber, less sugar - don't smoke, don't abuse alcohol or drugs.

If we follow these guidelines and maintain an optimal weight, we can avoid or at least diminish the risk or severity of many common health problems.

But there is another dimension to our health. How we think and feel, how we interact with others, and the kinds of things we spend our time doing can have a huge impact on our physical health.

There is a clear difference, for example, between people who are more optimistic and people who are more pessimistic. Optimists have greater longevity - living an average of about eight years longer than pessimists.

They have healthier hearts, more resilient immune systems, and even have fewer bad events happen to them. This isn't magic, it's because they take active steps to anticipate and avoid those bad events.

BECOMING MRS. ZERO Print E-mail

Friday, 17 October 2014

Now that President Zero is finally no longer being worshipped and his popularity having fallen off a cliff, it's interesting to see the same thing happen to Mrs. Zero.

To The Point has always viewed her as such, but we welcome the public which is at last seeing things our way.

The principal reason is the hatred school children and now their parents have for her Food Fascism.  The WaPo reports that even school nutritionists are balking over her school lunch agenda.

This week (10/15), the photo of a pathetically paltry school lunch costing $3 in accordance with Mrs. Zero's Food Fascism went viral.  There is now an explosion of parental anger towards her all over the country.

She compounded this by becoming a laughingstock this week.  Believe it or not, the White House released a six-second repeating loop of her dancing with a turnip.  Here she is with her turnip - promoting healthy eating, you see - bopping to "Turn up for what?", a rap song by some rapper calling himself Lil John:

Yesterday the New York Times condemned Republicans for conducting a "grim" and "dismal" campaign that blames "Obama and the Democratic Party (who) run a government that is so fundamentally broken it cannot offer its people the most basic protection from harm."

The New York Times can't stand it when Republicans tell the truth...

On the bright side, there's a wonderfully cheery story in the New York Times on Tuesday (10/07) - cheery for us, doom and gloom for the libtards at the Times:  The State-by-State Revival of the Right...

No wonder his popularity is in the pits and everyone who loves America hates his guts.  Headline from the London Daily Mail on Wednesday (10/08):  Obama slams GOP as party of billionaires then attends $32k-a-head fundraiser hosted by billionaire property tycoon named Rich Richman...

Now is the time to say J'Accuse! to Chief Justice John Roberts.  The suspicion that he was blackmailed (over illegally adopting his children) emerged after switching his vote at the last minute to rationalize the faux-constitutionality of Obamacare (June 2012).   This week, that suspicion was confirmed...

The Conservative Treehouse really nails this story:  Fifth Child Dies to Support President Obama's Illegal Immigration Goals...

HIDDEN CHINA III Print E-mail

Last February, we had our adventure to Hidden China II.  Like Hidden China I the previous September, it was absolutely extraordinary.  Breathtakingly memorable. 

So much so that Hidden China III is similar to its predecessor - similar, but not the same.  It's been upgraded, and includes a visit to the tribal peoples of North Vietnam - the young ladies above are Red Zao - plus a luxury overnight cruise in the World Heritage Site of Vietnam's spectacular Ha Long Bay.  In fact, all told we go to six World Heritage Sites.

Our primary focus is China's most stunning and fascinating region, Yunnan.  It has a multitude of incredibly colorful ethnic cultures who are not Han Chinese and have preserved their traditions.  And it has places that will completely blow you away - like Tiger Leaping Gorge, the Luoping Rapeseed Fields, or the thousand year-old Hani Rice Terraces pictured above, clearly one of the great wonders of the world.

We go in early March, the best time to see them in 2015, when the crowds from China's National Holiday have vanished and the weather is perfect. Note, however, this is an adventure.  We stay in the best hotels and dine in the best restaurants when we can - but that's not always.  We're going to places where tourists aren't.  And our schedule is demanding so we can see them all in two weeks.  Let's get started.  And yes, the pictures are real.

LIBERALS NEED TO BE AS AFRAID OF CONSERVATIVES AS THEY ARE OF MOSLEMS Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler   
Thursday, 09 October 2014

Josey Wales made the issue very clear:

 

"Now remember, when things look bad and you think you're not going to make it, then you've got to get mean - I mean plumb mad dog mean.  Because if you lose your head and you give up, then you neither live nor win.  That's just the way it is."

America is dying of an epidemic of Political Ebola spread by Liberal Fascists.  It is no use to bemoan and wring our hands over it.  The only thing to do is get plumb mad dog mean.

In this regard, let's ask:  What allows Libs - Liberal academics and teachers, pundits, reporters, TV talking heads, New York Times editorial writers, Dem politicians - to denounce and ridicule Conservative values and beliefs, which they never ever do with those of Moslems?

It's a softball question - it's because Libs are terrified and intimidated by Moslems but not by Conservatives.

So let's ask a more difficult question:  how do we make Libs as afraid of us?

THE TRAGIC AND INDEFENSIBLE SUPREME COURT Print E-mail
Written by Senator Ted Cruz   
Wednesday, 08 October 2014

The Supreme Court's decision on Monday (10/06) to let rulings by lower court judges stand that redefine marriage is both tragic and indefensible.

By refusing to rule if the States can define marriage, the Supreme Court is abdicating its duty to uphold the Constitution. The fact that the Supreme Court Justices, without providing any explanation whatsoever, have permitted lower courts to strike down so many state marriage laws is astonishing.
 
This is judicial activism at its worst. The Constitution entrusts state legislatures, elected by the People, to define marriage consistent with the values and mores of their citizens.  Unelected judges should not be imposing their policy preferences to subvert the considered judgments of democratically elected legislatures.
 
The Supreme Court is, de facto, applying an extremely broad interpretation to the 14th Amendment without saying a word - an action that is likely to have far-reaching consequences.

It is beyond dispute that when the 14th Amendment was adopted 146 years ago, as a necessary post-Civil War era reform, it was not imagined to also mandate same-sex marriage -- but that is what the Supreme Court is implying. The Court is making the preposterous assumption that the People of the United States somehow silently redefined marriage in 1868 when they ratified the 14th Amendment.

TURKEY IS ON THE SIDE OF THE ISIS TERRORISTS Print E-mail

Friday, 10 October 2014

Muhammad Hamzah Khan, 19, planned to fly to Turkey, then cross the border into Syria to join the terrorists of the Islamic State. But the FBI arrested him at O'Hare airport Oct. 4.

Ankara has "allowed its Syria border to become a two-way ‘jihadist highway,'" said Turkish journalist Kadri Gursel. Most of up to 12,000 foreign fighters got to IS via Turkey, where some wounded jihadis have received free medical care.

"Turkey's support was vital for the jihadists in getting in and out of the country," wrote Orhan Kemal Cengiz in the newspaper Zaman.

"Turkey paved the way for us," an IS fighter, in Ankara for medical treatment, told the newspaper Aydinlik.

The Turks also "provided the bulk of ISIS' funds, logistics, training and arms," said Middle East expert Daniel Pipes.  

Turkey supported Jabhat al-Nusra, (the al Qaida affiliate President Barack Obama called "the Khorasan Group"), said Francis Ricciardone, our ambassador there until June.

By "Ankara," "Turkey," and "the Turks," they mean the Islamist government of Recep Erdogan, prime minister since 2003, president since July, whose policies are as controversial within Turkey as are Mr. Obama's in ours.

IS THE CDC EPITOMIZING ONE OF THE THREE GREAT LIES? Print E-mail
Written by Jack Kelly   
Wednesday, 08 October 2014

Thomas Eric Duncan, 42, flew to Dallas Sept. 20, five days after he helped an Ebola-stricken woman get to a local hospital in Monrovia, Liberia.  He died of Ebola this morning (10/08) in a Texas hospital after potentially infecting over 100 people.

Many countries have restricted air travel from Ebola-ravaged countries. The Obama administration won't.

The only way epidemics have ever been contained is by quarantine. Restricting entry of those who've been exposed to Ebola is a must, said Dr. Jane Orient, executive director of the American Association of Physicians and Surgeons.

Yet Thomas Frieden says a travel ban would "backfire."  He's Obama's director of the CDC, the Centers for Disease Control.

That's ridiculous, said Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, who before entering elective politics headed the Louisiana Dept. of Health and Hospitals, been an assistant secretary in HHS.

"How, exactly, would stopping the entry of people potentially carrying the Ebola virus be counterproductive?" he asks.
