CDC Confirms First Ebola Case Diagnosed In The US, In Dallas Hospital - Press Conference Live Feed





As experts (as opposed to President Obama) had warned, the probability of Ebola coming to the US is around 20% by year-end. So it should not be a total surprise that:

*CDC CONFIRMS FIRST EBOLA CASE DIAGNOSED IN THE UNITED STATES, PATIENT IS IN DALLAS HOSPITAL, NEWS 8 REPORTS
*CDC DIRECTOR SAYS: `THERE IS NO DOUBT WE WILL STOP IT HERE'

The patient recently returned (via plane) from traveling from Liberia, West Africa. This perhaps explains why CDC was "taking precautions in the US" as we noted previously. And don't forget the administration's interference in Ebola treatments.

Syria, Neo-Cons, And The Attempted Infiltration Of The Liberty Movement





As most readers are aware, the false left/right paradigm has been the primary control mechanism used against the American people for decades. The idea being that in order for establishment elites to maintain control of a population with a heritage of independence, a facade of choice must be created to placate the dim-witted masses while the system itself is dominated from behind the scenes. The people of a republic must be conned into participating in the process of their own enslavement, at least until the oligarchs are ready to unleash full-blown totalitarianism.

Despite Obama's "Priority", US Government "Screwed Up" Ebola Treatment





Having earlier warned that the Ebola epidemic could kill "hundreds of thousands" and is a "priority for US," President Obama's concerns about "slowing economic growth in Africa," are perhaps the most telling statement of the Nobel Peace Prize winners comments this morning. However, as Bloomberg Businessweek's Brendan Greeley explains in this brief clip, US government bureaucracy stymied efforts to develop and test ZMapp - the potential Ebola treatment.

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... is fear.

President Obama Addresses The United Nations General Assembly - Live Feed





"We did it for your own good," could perhaps be the mantra of President Obama's address to The United Nations' General Assembly this morning as the Nobel Peace Prize winner looks his fellow world-leaders in the eye and explains why the US unilaterally invaded Syria to save them all from the Dread Pirate Roberts ISIS/ISIL/Islamic State (and now The Khorasan Group). As AP reports, on Wednesday afternoon, Obama will convene an unusual meeting of the U.N. Security Council, during which members were expected to adopt a resolution that would require all countries to prevent the recruitment and transport of would-be foreign fighters preparing to join terrorist groups such as the Islamic State group. Good luck with that.

America's Politicians Earn $608 Per Hour





On the surface, earning $174,000 per year, while putting one solidly in the top 10% of all US earners, does not sound like much. This happens to be the 2014 allocated wage of America's elected political representatives, the members of the House of Representatives. And indeed, in the grand scheme of things it isn't much... until one considers that in the 102-day period between August 1 and November 12, this wage will be "earned" for just working a paltry 8 days, which, presuming 10 hour workdays, amounts to a whopping $608 per hour, on par with what some of America's most prominent lawyers earn. It is also several times the hourly compensation of anesthesiologists, one of the highest-earning professions, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, at $113 an hour on average.
