The federal government is spending nearly $1 million to create an online database that will track “misinformation” and hate speech on Twitter.
The National Science Foundation is financing the creation of a web service that will monitor “suspicious memes” and what it considers “false and misleading ideas,” with a major focus on political activity online.
The “Truthy” database, created by researchers at Indiana University, is designed to “detect political smears, astroturfing, misinformation, and other social pollution.”
The university has received $919,917 so far for the project.
“The project stands to benefit both the research community and the public significantly,” the grant states. “Our data will be made available via [application programming interfaces] APIs and include information on meme propagation networks, statistical data, and relevant user and content features.”
“The open-source platform we develop will be made publicly available and will be extensible to ever more research areas as a greater preponderance of human activities are replicated online,” it continues. “Additionally, we will create a web service open to the public for monitoring trends, bursts, and suspicious memes.”
“This service could mitigate the diffusion of false and misleading ideas, detect hate speech and subversive propaganda, and assist in the preservation of open debate,” the grant said.
“Truthy,” which gets its name from Stephen Colbert, will catalog how information is spread on Twitter, including political campaigns.
“While the vast majority of memes arise in a perfectly organic manner, driven by the complex mechanisms of life on the Web, some are engineered by the shady machinery of high-profile congressional campaigns,” according to the website.
“Truthy” claims to be non-partisan. However, the project’s lead investigator Filippo Menczer proclaims his support for numerous progressive advocacy groups, including President Barack Obama’s Organizing for Action, Moveon.org, Greenpeace, the Sierra Club, Amnesty International, and True Majority.
Menczer, a professor of informatics and computer science at Indiana University, links to each of the organizations on his personal page from his bio at the Center for Complex Networks and Systems Research.
The government-funded researchers hope that the public will use their tool in the future to report on other Twitter users.
“Truthy uses a sophisticated combination of text and data mining, social network analysis, and complex networks models,” the website adds. “To train our algorithms, we leverage crowdsourcing: we rely on users like you to flag injections of forged grass-roots activity. Therefore, click on the Truthy button when you see a suspicious meme!”
The project also seeks to discover why certain Internet memes go viral and others do not. Funding is not expected to expire until June 30, 2015.
This is another "1984" technique. For those of you who have never read the book or at least seen one of the two movie versions, the people were "encouraged" by the government to report anyone they suspected of being a "thought criminal" (in the book it was an actual crime to think anti government thoughts).
Now the government is encouraging people to report anyone they suspect of being an extremist (far left or right), criminals, liars, agitators, and the like. Personally this new "tool" scares the hell out of me. It's literally encouraging people to snitch on others solely based on what they Tweet.
I wonder what they would consider "forged grass-roots activity." Probably anything that is not politically correct.
Well that's it for me on Twitter. I don't need the Thought Police checking up on me by checking my Tweets. Social Media has become a tool to monitor people and I plain don't like it.
It's yet another way to put more limits on freedom of speech. I don't think I'll go and cancel my account, but I doubt I'll be using it again. Well at least we've been warned.
It’s axiomatic that leftist leadership is always in favor of sacrificing for the environment if someone else is doing the sacrificing. This double-standard hypocrisy is nowhere more evident than in California’s water problems.
I’ve written before about how the drought is affecting residents and agriculture; and also how the failure of California Democrats to prepare for drought conditions in a state that has always been semi-arid has resulted in devastating cutbacks to farming and the loss of business and people to other, better managed states like Texas.
(For what it’s worth, Texas is also suffering from a drought but its lack of water is not combined with complete Democrat control of all state offices.)
The latest statistics put 90 percent of the state in the severe drought category. But that, like many other rules the little people must follow, does not apply to Nancy Pelosi and her constituents in San Francisco.
The Washington Times has discovered that while drought, combined with the Endangered Species Act, “has wreaked havoc for decades on rural communities,” San Francisco is exempt from the water rationing imposed elsewhere.
To make matters even worse, water from the Tuolumne River is diverted 167 miles to refresh the residents of Baghdad by the Bay. As the Times points out, “Without that diversion, about 15 percent more water would flow to the Sacramento Delta, which is critical habitat for threatened fish like the delta smelt, the green sturgeon, and several species of salmon.”
As a result of this drought disparity, Craig Manson, head of the Center for Environmental Science, Accuracy and Reliability (CESAR), has filed a lawsuit “aimed at addressing the double standard that forces farmers to give up water in the name of species conservation — without requiring Bay Area residents to do the same.”
Winning is not going to be easy. Even the environmental community is not falling into line to support the effort because winning would make a powerful enemy in Pelosi. She may not read the bills before one achieves passage, but she has a long memory.
The green lobby is willing to accept a bit of hypocrisy at home in return for her support for the iron fist of “environmental justice” in other sections of the state with less political influence.
Which brings us to the operational definition of shared sacrifice for the affluent environmentalist: we share the sacrifice with you, while we take all the credit for our environmental concern.
Michael Reagan is the son of former President Ronald Reagan and chairman of the League of American Voters. His blog appears on reaganreports.com
Environmentalism is important to National Socialism. However in a National Socialist state if one must sacrifice then ALL must sacrifice - not just the Working Class.
F. Scott Fitzgerald once wrote, "The rich are different from you and me."
Perhaps, but that doesn't entitle them to special treatment. I suppose you can't blame Pelosi. After all if her lawn dies from lack of watering it may cause a ten percent or so drop in property values. The same will happen to us, but I guess she figures that ten percent for her is a lot more money than ten percent of the value of our homes. Too bad Nancy. I don't give a damn about the property values of your multi-million dollar house. My house is just as important to me as yours is to you. The fact that yours is worth millions is irrelevant.
This is just another case of what's become known as "affluenza". It's just more BS from the one percent to justify getting special treatment over the 99 percent. If we don't start standing up to them soon it will be back to the Feudal System again. The ANP is just the organization to help stop them. But we can't do it without your support.
This state is drying up before our very eyes. Do you remember the Polar Vortex from last winter? It sure hammered most of the country with storms and lots of snow. California did not get one drop of rain or one flake of snow because of any Polar Vortex. Every time a PV storm came down from the north it traveled southeasterly and bypassed California every time leaving us high and dry as usual.
This situation will start to effect the rest of the country too. If California does indeed start running out of water the Feds will have to divert water from other sources and you'll be put on a ration system too.
I'm told out in Indio, Ca. they are planning to have camel rides at next year's Date Festival. Maybe we should all get out there next February and start learning how to ride.
Ly Kou, James Baca and other activists organized an effort for citizens to speak out in opposition to a proposed resolution that was a direct result of the diverting of Homeland Security buses away from the Murrieta Border patrol Station on July 1, 2014.
It was a boisterous and raucous night! There were more than 50 speakers and the city council meeting did not end until 11:30pm. The speakers in opposition/support of the resolution were approximately even in number.
At right, Patrice Lynes who organized the Murrieta project, was the first speaker. Four speakers who had participated in the blocking of Homeland Security buses also spoke out in support of the July 1, 2014 action.
Pro-illegal speakers denounced Murrieta. They used words such as "racism" repeatedly. The pro-law speakers were well informed and revealed facts about the resolution and referenced the law. Loree Messina gave a great presentation. Ly Kou presented a riveting talk about TRUE refugee status. Kate Valdez testified on behalf of her Riverside family members. Robert Newman and Raul Rodriguez presented talks that focused on the U.S. Constitution. Estelle talked about the faulty premise of the resolution as well as health risks.
Those in support of the resolution derided attendees who opposed the resolution that were from outside of Riverside. However, there were many among the resolution supporters who were also from out of town. Probably about equal in numbers.
Above photo, Gil Navarro, former San Bernardino County Board of Education member who was forcibly removed from the board because of his conflict of interest for involvement on a water board, was particularly sharp tongued. He coined the term "Murrieta skinheads" and said that "Herrera is here with his gang." At one point his talk was so vitriolic that the mayor interrupted him.
The woman above got into a heated exchange with Carol Schaeffer after she said that the Indians should not have "taught" the "white man" how to plant corn and crops. Schaeffer fired back that she was tired of the maligning of white people.
An officer was called to intercede and the speaker then went back to her seat.
INCIDENT AT THE END OF THE MEETING
One of our attendees from Pomona was antagonized by a pro-illegal alien activist from her home town of Pomona, CA Benjamin Wood, after the meeting ended. He followed her outside as he filmed her.
She eventually swatted at his camera with her notebook.
Benjamin Wood demanded that police officers arrest her. Officers met with her, for more than 30 minutes, and eventually only issued a citation. She was not arrested. There will be a court appearance on October 22, 2014, and all who would like to attend to support her can join her that day in court.
The officer stated that the case will no doubt be "thrown out" by the judge.
This is good news. Riverside, Ca. will NOT be a sanctuary city! For once the politicians LISTENED to the people. But then again, Riverside is a city with only about 300,000 people. Like with cops, politicians in smaller communities aren't the same as in the larger communities.
Don't get me wrong. They are still systemites and not to be trusted, but things are different in a city of 300,000 versus a city like Los Angeles which has 4,000,000. There is still more of a community feeling in small cities than in large.
What impresses me is how many people are actually taking action. Maybe we do have a chance after all.
Note again that the liberals had to turn this into a racial issue as usual.
The nation's most populous state is battling double-barreled calamities — California's agriculture is in a downward spiraling due to drought, and its debt is soaring amid increasing immigration and staggering pension obligations.
But perhaps an even bigger problem facing the state is "misplaced priorities," according to Forbes.com contributor Thomas Del Beccaro.
California has seen a wave of immigration over several decades and now has more than 38 million residents, with an equal number of Latinos and non-Hispanic whites. But projections show that the population will continue to grow due to immigration and could reach 50 million within two decades.
That should mean Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown would place a high priority on job creation. But that is not the case today, according to Del Beccaro, former chairman of the California Republican Party and a frequent radio and television commentator.
California has one of America's highest unemployment rates. And with 12 percent of the nation's population, the state has 30 percent of the country's welfare recipients.
Debt at the state and municipal levels stands at more than $1.1 trillion, much of that tied to pensions.
Gov. Brown recently signed a large tax increase with a top rate of 13.3 percent, and California taxes are 42 percent higher than in Texas. The Golden State also has implemented a 15-cent-per-gallon gasoline tax increase to fight climate change — all factors not likely to spur new job creation in the state.
On top of that, California is in the midst of a three-year drought that is estimated to result in economic losses of $2.2 billion in the state's agriculture industry this year alone, plus the loss of more than 17,000 jobs.
But rather than focus on these problems, Del Beccaro writes that Gov. Brown has focused his energies on bringing high-speed rail to the state. He rejected an $11.3 billion water bond proposal, insisting it was too expensive, but sought $68 billion for high-speed rail despite the lack of consumer demand.
The rail line would connect Los Angeles and San Francisco and allow for future connections to San Diego and Sacramento. But studies by several independent observers estimate that far fewer riders will use the rail line than the rail authority projects.
Gov. Brown did ultimately agree to a $2.5 billion bond for water storage, a figure "woefully short" of what is needed, Del Beccaro asserts.
He concludes: "By emphasizing high-speed rail over water and failing to deal with its debt crisis, California poses a long-term threat to our national economy and is on an economic collision course with increased immigration and lack of water."
Is this going to be California's new flag?
California is suffering from the worst drought in years. Add to that we are home to the two hottest and most arid places on the continent: Death Valley, and the Anza-Borrego Desert (Anza is the name of the Spaniard who first discovered it and Borrego is a type of wild sheep indigenous to the region).
Anyway it seems that ZOG Jr. (state government) is more interested in prestige projects like the high speed rail, or bullet train than properly managing our water supplies.
Los Angeles county (the most populous county in the country except for New York County) gets its water from Mono Lake. The water level has been dropping for decades, not only because of drought, but because of increasing demand from LA's ever growing population.
As you can see from these photos the lake is literally being sucked dry. That entire basin was once filled with water.
This is also another reason to limit immigration. Where are going to get water for all these people and those who will follow and their children and children's children? How much can you ask those people who are already here to cut back on?
LA County officially has declared (although there is no law against it yet) anyone who has a green lawn to be a water hog. I don't think it's too much to ask to be able to water your lawn once or twice a week. Believe me in our hot, dry climate, it doesn't take very long for your lawn to die if you stop watering it. Do we have to let our lawns die to accommodate more and more immigrants? Wouldn't it be better to just stop all immigration? We've done it before.
The pro-immigration people often say, "We're all descended from immigrants. Just because we have ours does that give us the right to tell newcomers they can't have theirs?"
In a word, YES. There are only so much resources to go around. If there isn't enough water then there isn't enough water. First come, first served. No more vacancies.
There's an old Irish saying, "There's always room for one more." That is absolutely false. Eventually you will run out of room and then everybody suffers. How much longer can California go on like this before we all start to suffer?
Ten years ago the photo above was mostly under water. Now the desert has taken it back. How much longer before the entire lake is like this? These are not rhetorical questions. I'd like some answers.
Some sheriffs in rural areas across the U.S. are vowing to ignore tighter gun laws and stand with the people they serve to support the Second Amendment.
“I made a vow and a commitment that as long as I’m the sheriff of this county I will not allow the federal government to come in here and strip my law-abiding citizens of the right to bear arms,” Sheriff Mike Lewis of Wicomico County, Maryland, told NBC News. “If they attempt to do that it will be an all-out civil war. Because I will stand toe-to-toe with my people.”
“State police and highway patrol get their orders from the governor,” the sheriff added. “I get my orders from the citizens in this county.”
As more states pass stronger gun control laws, some sheriffs are finding themselves at odds with the new rules.
NBC noted that the position of sheriff is not in the U.S. Constitution — though it is in state constitutions — and most sheriffs are elected by the people.
“The role of a sheriff is to be the interposer between the law and the citizen,” Maryland Delegate Don Dwyer, an Anne Arundel County Republican, told NBC News. “He should stand between the government and citizen in every issue pertaining to the law.”
Sheriff Tony Desmond of Schoharie County in New York feels his stand against new gun laws broadening the definition of banned assault weapons helped him get re-elected last year.
“If you have an (assault) weapon, which under the SAFE Act is considered illegal, I don’t look at it as being illegal just because someone said it was,” he told NBC.
One former sheriff said that upon studying the U.S. Constitution, there shouldn't be any gun control laws at all.
“I studied what the Founding Fathers meant about the Second Amendment, the right to keep and bear arms, and the conclusion is inescapable,” said Richard Mack, a former Arizona sheriff and the founder of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (CSPOA). “There’s no way around it. Gun control in America is against the law.”
Let's be clear on this. The sheriffs that are standing against gun bans are all from rural type counties. For those of you who live in a rural area, you know that the sheriffs are all well-known to the citizens. In an urban are such as Los Angeles, Chicago, or New York City, they are high up bureaucrats that have their offices in ivory towers and have little contact with the people they are supposed to be protecting. That also means they have more contact with state and federal authorities than does the "small town sheriff". And there's the difference.
I'm wary of all police, but small town cops care more about the people than do big city cops which have become nothing more than paramilitary groups whose purpose is to "keep the people in line." If you're from an urban area it's hard to imagine cops that still care, but there are some out there in Rural U.S.A.
I'm kind of lucky. I have lived in both urban and small town areas. I live in a rough urban area now, but I come from a small town and there is a difference between the two kinds of cops. In a small town you might have gone to school with the sheriff. He might have played on your high school football team. You might have even gone to the same kindergarten.
In the big city, the sheriff is some faceless bureaucrat who if he was wearing civilian clothes and you saw him walking down the street you wouldn't even know who he was. I couldn't tell you what my county sheriff looks like to save my life. He's just another big shot cop systemite to me - and every other regular person in the county too.
California State Senator Ricardo Lara is the author of the bill that gave illegal aliens the right to obtain driver's licenses. He is also the author of a new bill SB 1159 that if passed will give illegals the right to obtain business and professional licenses as well.
Republican State Senator Joel Anderson's office is next to Senator Ricardo Lara's office. After the SB 1159 Citizen Lobby group met with Senator Anderson's staff members, when they exited the office, Senator Ricardo Lara was in the hallway.
The lobbyists when they sought to meet with Senator Lara in his office, encountered a "drag queen" party http://wethepeoplerising.wordpress.com/2014/08/19/ca-state-senator-laras-office-sacramento -ca-81914/and were told Senator Lara was “on the floor” and eventually met with his staff members. Following that meeting, the citizen lobbyists met with the staff of Republican Senator Joel Anderson, which is the office that is next to Senator Lara’s office. When the citizen lobbyists exited the office, Senator Lara was in the hallway, so they requested to meet with him. He told the group that he would be “right back” as he dashed into nearby State Senator Holly Mitchell’s office.
Senator Mitchell's staff members closed their office door.
The group waited outside the office and noted that several staff members and 4 "burly" sergeants of arms arrived and entered the office that Senator Lara had entered. After a few moments a group emerged from Senator Mitchell's office with Senator Lara in the center of officers and staff members. The group then briskly trotted to the nearest elevator and Senator Lara vacated the floor without meeting with the citizen lobby group.
The members of the Sacramento SB 1159 Citizen Lobby Group were: Staysi Barth, Patrice Lynes, Raymond Herrera, Robin Hvidston, Robert Lauten, Mike McGetrick, Robert Newman, Raul Rodriguez, and Carol Schaeffer. [Note that this is not a group made up completely of "racist" Whites. TWO are Mestizos. The liberals can't play the race card on this one. - Dan.]
As you can see, Senator Lara went to extremes to avoid speaking with this group. It proves two things. First, that he has no intention of changing his mind about his bill. He's working for the benefit of HIS people and the rest of us can like it or lump it. Secondly, it shows that as a career politician he is going to do what he feels is best and to hell with what the people want. So typical of a systemite.
Folks, the Dishonourable Senator Lara is just one among most of the politicians in this country. They could care less what the people say. Indeed, in the case of Lara, not only doesn't he care, but he doesn't even want to be bothered hearing it.
When are people going to pull their heads out and realize that Lara is NOT an exception, he's quite typical. The system DOES NOT WORK! It's time people wake up and smell the coffee.
We need a system that works FOR the people and not against them. That system is National Socialism. Come on and wake up. I make pretty good coffee. Nazi coffee - good to the last drop!
Reminder - Today is the 47th Anniversary of the death of Commander George Lincoln Rockwell. Let's honour his memory by working for the cause, rather than lighting a candle and toasting him with a beer. I'm sure the commander would agree.
There’s more than one way to skin the American people. Illegal immigration isn’t just about cheap labor, growing the welfare state, and strengthening the ethnic lobbies. The so-called charities and nonprofits are also part of the scam.
They don’t just want your moral praise—they want your tax dollars. Indeed, without the government, few would even exist.
You might think that a government-supported charity is a contradiction in terms. After all, the whole point of charity is that it’s voluntary. But in the eyes of the Main Stream Media, those sanctimonious social workers and religious hypocrites whose salaries you pay aren’t greedy capitalists but “humanitarians.”
Good work if you can get it.
Catholic Charities U.S.A. has been at this for a long time. As VDARE.com’s Brenda Walker reported recently:
“…Catholic Charities gets billions of taxpayer dollars for refugee resettlement and general immigration services, which puts it into the category of a smallish government agency. For example, in 2010, 62 percent of Catholic Charities’ budget was funded by the unwilling taxpayer. The feds and the Catholic bishops are partners.” Government dependence has only increased since 2010. As of November of 2013, the group’s total revenue was $4.39 billion. Of that total, more than 66%—$ 2.916 billion—came from the government.
Government agencies that have contracts with Catholic Charities include: the Department of Health and Human Services, the Department of Justice, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Department of Agriculture, the Department of Labor, and the Department of Homeland Security. [President’s Budget Proposal 2014, Catholic Charities]
So much for passing around the collection plate.
Needless to say, Catholic Charities is hardly a neutral observer in the immigration debate. Not surprisingly considering its financial self-interest, the group supports amnesty.
But don’t worry—treason is ecumenical. Protestant groups aren’t letting the Catholics get all the government funding.
For example, Baptist Child and Family Services (BCFS) sounds like a Red State charity out of Richard Dawkins’s fever dreams, but it’s actually the government contractor that snagged a $50 million deal to purchase the Palm Aire Resort hotel in Texas. BCFS was to make it into a resort hotel for illegal alien minors. [Feds to Open $50 million resort for illegal children – complete with tennis courts, sauna & pools (updated), by Kristinn Taylor, Gateway Pundit, July 16, 2014]
After the story was posted on the Drudge Report, BCFS withdrew its bid because of the negative attention. But don’t worry—it has plenty more government contracts where that came from. [UPDATE on BCFS: Using the word “Baptist” in the Government organization title doesn’t make it a Church, by Mara Zebest, Gateway Pundit, July 17, 2014]
As Time Magazine reports,
“…This obscure charity has emerged as one of the biggest players in the federal government’s response to the influx of more than 57,000 unaccompanied children who have trudged across the southern border so far this year. It runs two of the largest facilities for temporarily housing immigrant children, as well as six permanent shelters in California and Texas. Since December, BCFS has received more than $280 million in federal grants to operate these shelters, according to government records. On July 7, two days before [BCFS president Kevin] Dinnin met Obama in Dallas, the Department of Health and Human Services awarded BCFS $190,707,505 in a single grant.
[This Baptist Charity Is Being Paid Hundreds of Millions to Shelter Child Migrants by Alex Altman and Elisabeth Dias, Time, August 4, 2014] In fact, BCFS is garnering obscene revenue from the “refugee crisis.” According to Time, BCFS is the largest recipient of money disbursed to contractors to temporarily house unaccompanied children until they can reunited with family members or placed in foster care. While the BCFS is getting 40% of the grant money for “sheltering unaccompanied children,” other “charitable” groups getting money include Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.
In the end, your tax dollars go into the pockets of people like Kevin Dinnin [pictured right] President and CEO of Baptist Child and Family Services Emergency Management Division (email him). He receives a salary of at least $477,799 annually. The organization’s entire payroll amounted to $33 million.
This isn’t unusual. Time’s Altman and Dias report:
The median salary for the CEOs of nonprofit organizations like BCFS was about $285,000 in 2011, according to a 2013 survey by Charity Navigator. Altman and Dias also explain why the government is so secretive about all this:
To shield vulnerable kids from angry opponents of immigration and the media spotlight, the government declines to disclose the locations and activities of many of the facilities operated by BCFS and similar organizations. But while the Left says it aims to “shield vulnerable kids,” it is really protecting profiteers like Dinnin.
Needless to say, secular groups are also getting in on the action. An outfit called Wolverine Human Services received federal funds to dump illegal aliens on the small town of Vassar, Michigan. [Wolverine Human Services on housing refugee teens in Vassar: ‘We can’t make everyone happy,” by Lindsay Knake, Michigan Live, July 9, 2014]
As these groups have learned, illegal immigration isn’t just government policy. It’s a moneymaking scam that eliminates the distinction between charities and business.
As Brenda Walker reported, one “deluxe detention center for illegal aliens” in Texas is run by The GEO Group, a private prison company. However, this “private” company relies on the same government sources for funding as supposed “charities” and religious groups.
Perhaps some of the people involved in these groups have good intentions. But the U.S. government does not exist to cater to their pathological altruism. And the government should certainly not be redistributing our tax dollars to these people and calling it “charity.”
In the face of this massive conflict of interest, what we need in dealing with these multimillion dollar “nonprofits” and their millionaire “charitable” executives is more cynicism.
These alleged charities are indistinguishable from the self-interested plutocrats of the Cheap Labor lobby—what VDARE.com calls the “Slave Power.”
Above all, these privileged recipients of state largesse have no business lecturing Americans, who provide their ill-gotten gains, about morality.
It seems there's profit to be had everywhere - including the charity business. If you were the head of a so-called charitable organization and you made $477,799 annually, plus an expense account and a company car (all expenses including gas and repairs paid for by the organization) it would be in your best interest to see to it that there was always a need for your services.
Also, when the pro-illegal immigration supporters talk about anti-illegal immigration people, they almost always call them "racist Whites" - despite the fact that almost half of them are non-Whites. It's the liberals who turn everything into a race issue, not us.
In the case of the author of this article, Allan Wall, they would only be making asses of themselves. I don't need to remind anyone how much I disapprove of race-mixing, but Mr. Wall is a White man married to a Mestizo woman and has two half-breed children. He also lived with them in Mexico for several years before returning to the United States. It is plainly obvious that there's no way any reasonable person could call Wall a racist. It's laughable.
My point is that Wall would never approve of National Socialism, yet he and the ANP agree on this one issue. When two persons or groups on completely opposite sides of the fence agree on one thing, that says something. What it says in this case is that this illegal immigration issue is NOT a matter of race, but one of protecting our borders from illegal colonization by foreigners.
Immigration checkpoint in Liberia. Liberia is a former U.S. Colony.
A Spanish priest being treated for the Ebola virus at the Carlos III Hospital in Madrid died on Tuesday, Associated Press reported, citing hospital officials. Miguel Pajares had contracted the disease while he was working at the San Jose de Monrovia Hospital in Liberia's capital city, and was airlifted to Madrid last week.
Earlier reports had said that the 75-year old Pajares was to be treated with ZMapp, an untested drug being used in the treatment of two Americans infected with the virus. The Spanish drug safety agency had said that the government chose to make an "exceptional importation" of ZMapp because the patient could not be "treated satisfactorily with an authorized medication."
ZMapp, which is manufactured by Mapp Biopharmaceutical Inc., of San Diego, is being used to treat two Americans at Atlanta's Emory University Hospital, but was never tested on a human being before the latest outbreak. The Ebola virus has killed more than 1,000 people and has affected 1,848 people in West Africa, according to estimates from the United Nations.
The use of the drug on only Western patients so far had triggered criticism from African nations, which have been hit hardest by the crisis.
On Monday, reports had said the U.S. had authorized the dispatch of the drug to Liberia to treat two local doctors, and that the approval from the U.S. came as a response to a request on Friday from Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf. However, on Tuesday, Liberia backed off the claim it made earlier that U.S. President Barack Obama had authorized the dispatch of the experimental drug to the West African nation, according to Associated Press.
Just as predicted, Ebola has gotten out of Africa. How much longer before it gets to the United States? There is already one suspected case in Northern California. Unless I missed it, they have neither proved nor disproved it is Ebola.
For the sake of our own citizens - and in America our citizens should come first - the plague areas must be isolated. With the ease of travel these days, this could become a pandemic before we know it.
Although Ebola is not spread easily like the flu, I would like everyone to remember the 1918 Spanish Flu Pandemic. In less than two years it spread around the world and killed 28 million people. And this was a time when trans-oceanic flights were not technologically possible. Even ship travel was slower. With today's travel technology...
I'm not saying we do nothing for these people, but I for one am not willing to risk my life over this. With all the revolutions they have had in Africa and kicking us Whites out, well maybe if we still controlled these countries, the problem would have been solved by now. In fact I'm sure it would be. We have the intelligence, money, and organizational skills that Africans seem to be deficient in. After all, who is primarily involved with all the help efforts? Whites, of course. Africans seem to think they can take care of themselves. The evidence proves otherwise.
Note - Words with letters like "y" and "g" seem to be cut off below the line. I have no idea why this happened. Sorry.
Did you notice how the woman who was asking about the flag did so without the use of profanity, getting nasty, or making any threats? That's the way to do this sort of thing. If she had gotten threatening or started swearing the cops might have gotten involved and SHE would have gotten arrested. She did it in the right way. She was polite the entire time.
This lady was obviously conservative. I'm no big fan of conservatives either. Conservatism is NOT National Socialism. But she was polite and respectful, despite the fact she was angry to see a lone Mexican flag flying. By law, you cannot fly a foreign flag on American soil without an American flag at a higher level. This of course does not apply to Embassies or Consulates as they are considered the soil of whatever country that embassy or consulate belongs to. Yet the woman treated the Mexican woman with courtesy.
Have you ever noticed how when liberals are angry they cannot express themselves without profanity, threats, or childish name-calling. I get a lot of comments from liberals that never get posted because all they seem to be able to do is swear, threaten, and insult, rather than make a serious comment. If any liberal can indeed make a comment without threats, insults, or obscenities I will post it.

Welcome to Sense And Sensibility, a blog for National Socialists.
Here I will present the truth as I see it, and my opinions. You can form your own conclusions.
Remember, there are always at least two sides to every issue, and the truth, more often than not, lies somewhere in between.
Say whatever you want here. If you have a criticism about me - even a negative one, then let me know. Constructive positive and negative criticisms are allowed. Childish insults and cheap shots will be deleted.

Yes, like Texas it was once an independent republic - for a day.

SUPPORT 'OCCUPY WALL STREET'
I'm originally from New Hampshire, but I now live in California. I hold an AA degree from Chaffey College, Rancho Cucamonga, Ca., a BA from Cal-State University, San Bernardino, Ca., and a teaching credential from National University, Redlands, Ca. I became disgusted with the educational system, and retired from teaching. I now run my own modest business repairing mobile homes, and any other job I can make an honest buck at.
I am West Coast organiser for the American Nazi Party, Rocky J. Suhayda, Chairman.
