Two Police Officers Shot In Missouri

fergusonmo

Saturday night KMOV reported a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri was shot in the arm.   The St. Louis Post Dispatch reported that the officer is a man.

Early Sunday morning an off-duty St. Louis City officer was shot at along I-70. KMOV is reporting that the office was struck by shattered glass and a bullet.

It is way past time that the chaos and lawlessness in Ferguson is put to a stop.

This lawlessness in Ferguson, MO is based supposedly on a perceived injustice that may or may not have happened to a person of a skin color that a mob favors.  Ferguson, Missouri in 2010 was 67 percent black and 29 percent white. A black man walking down the street would not be an odd occurrence for a Ferguson police officer to see. The information the public has is to limited to discern guilt in this case. That is up to a court to decide. Recent evidence available to the public does show Officer Darren Wilson did not fire on Michael Brown in a cold-blooded desire to kill him because of his race.

What is happening in Ferguson?
With all the rioting, destruction, and looting, one would think that Brown’s death was an excuse for getting free merchandise.  Many in the media are legitimizing theft and destruction taking place in Ferguson to advance their narrative–exploitation of those in poverty–redistribution of wealth. The Boston Globe quoted a man in Ferguson, “If it wasn’t for the looting,” said one man, who declined to give his name, “we wouldn’t get the attention.”  This is about “attention.”

Mystery Illness Causing Paralysis In Children In California & Colorado

A mystery illness has caused “polio-like syndrome” in 25 children in California and 9 in Colorado.  The children have been vaccinated against the polo virus and did not test positive for the polo virus.  Some of the children tested positive for enterovirus-d68 but not all.

The illness is not polio. All of the children identified so far had been vaccinated, and none of them tested positive for the virus that causes polio. But, like polio, their illness causes sudden paralysis in at least one limb, and so far the children have recovered very little strength or motor function since they first became sick.

The first signs of the illness emerged in late 2012 in patients who were treated at Stanford and UCSF. Those cases and three others were described in a report released Monday, but doctors have found at least 15 other patients.

The most likely cause of illness is a virus, doctors say. They noted that there are no signs that the virus is in wide circulation and they do not expect to see a surge in similar cases. SFGate

Enterovirus D68

EV68-thmb
CDC Map

Center for Disease Control (CDC)  officials say 30 states now have respiratory illnesses caused by enterovirus 68.  From mid-August to September 23, 2014, a total of 213 people were  confirmed to have the respiratory illness caused by Enterovirus D68 (EV-D68).  There have also been 7 confirmed cases in British Colombia, Canada.

The 30 states are  Alabama, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Utah, Washington, and West Virginia.

All the confirmed cases are children except for one adult. EV-D68 is a rare strain of a very common virus.  It is thought that children have no immunity  from previous exposures to these viruses.  If children show signs of respiratory illness seek medical care. There is no specific treatment or vaccine for EV-D68.

  • It starts off similar to a common cold with fever and muscle aches possible and respiratory symptoms worsen.
  • It hits the young the hardest.
  • There is no specific treatment or vaccine.
  • It is contagious. Use common-sense to avoid infections:  hand washing, disinfecting surfaces, avoid contact with ones eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Parents should keep sick children at home and seek medical treatment if signs of respiratory illness.

The CDC states that the ‘Enterovirus D68 (EV-D68) is one of many non-polio enteroviruses. This virus was first identified in California in 1962, but it has not been commonly reported in the United States.”

ISIS Is 100 Percent Islamic

100percentSorry Mr. President, ISIS Is 100 Percent Islamic

From The Corner,  by Daniel Pipes:

In a televised address on how to address the Islamic State this evening (Sept 10), President Barack Obama declared the organization variously known as ISIS or ISIL to be “not Islamic.”

“Anyone with eyes and ears realizes that the Islamic State, like the Taliban and al-Qaeda before it, is 100 percent Islamic.”

In making this preposterous claim, Obama joins his two immediate predecessors in pronouncing on what is not Islamic. Bill Clinton called the Taliban treatment of women and children “a terrible perversion of Islam.”George W. Bush deemed that 9/11 and other acts of violence against innocents “violate the fundamental tenets of the Islamic faith.”

None of the three has any basis for such assertions. To state the obvious: As non-Muslims and politicians, rather than Muslims and scholars, they are in no position to declare what is Islamic and what is not. As Bernard Lewis, a leading American authority of Islam, notes: “It is surely presumptuous for those who are not Muslims to say what is orthodox and what is heretical in Islam.”

Online:  As New Dangers Loom, More Think the U.S. Does ‘Too Little’ to Solve World Problems

A Circus

Over a week of rioting, chaos, and lawlessness in Ferguson Missouri. One role of government is law and order, to enforce laws and keep order. A rule of law and not mob rule.   Protection of private property, not looters and vandals destroying businesses night after night after night. Bricks, bottles of urine, Molotov cocktails thrown by rioters at police officers, and chanting “Time To Kill A Cop.” Death threats received by Officer Darran Wilson directed at him and his loved ones.

In America you can express you anger peacefully in a public forum, that is not happening in Ferguson and the government is allowing chaos and lawlessness to reign.

A circus sitting on a powder keg:

 

Westboro , Amnesty International monitors, Tibetan Monks, Communist from Chicago, NAACP, Nation of Islam,  Anonymous the hacktivist group.

Shawn Parcells, the autopsy “expert” used by lawyers for the family of Michael Brown is not a doctor or licensed pathologist.

Looters coming from as far away as Texas.   Since the ‘protest’ started 10 days ago there have been 120 people arrested, only 4 have been from Ferguson, MO.  New Black Panther leader inciting violence.  Special operations private contractors deploying to Ferguson, MO.  Asymmetric Solutions tweet.

February ICE Release of Illegal Immigrants Unlawful, Audit Finds

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement

ICE (U.S. Immigration and Customs) violated the law when it released thousands of illegal immigrants last February, more than 600 of whom had criminal records, according to an Inspector General audit released this week. The audit blamed poor planning, ignorance of the law, and bad leadership from Washington.

Investigators said the problems lay at the senior levels of ICE itself, finding that top officials botched planning, didn’t inform their own superiors of the problems and didn’t even know the law required them to hold 34,000 immigrants a day until they were reminded of it by congressional staffers…

Between Feb. 9 and March 1, ICE released 2,226 immigrants, and 622 of those had criminal records, including 34 “Level 1” offenders, which includes all aggravated felony convictions. San Francisco’s ICE office alone released 11 of those Level 1 offenders.

When the releases became public, ICE agents tried to re-arrest many of the immigrants, picking up 24 of the Level 1 offenders, 30 Level 2 offenders who had lesser felonies or multiple misdemeanors and four Level 3 offenders who had a misdemeanor conviction.

The releases were so haphazard that only one of two dozen ICE offices had a lawyer available to review the detainees it was releasing, the IG said. Investigators said the ICE officers at the ground level did their best, including trying to screen people to make sure those with gang affiliations weren’t released.
