October is almost over. What does that mean? Cooler weather, Autumn, and of course, Halloween. But what are the origins of this semi-holiday? Halloween is one of the few holidays of completely White origin, relatively uncontaminated by other races and cultures.
Halloween is actually an abbreviation of a Catholic term: All Hallow's Eve. It precedes the Catholic Holy Day of All Saints Day. This is a day when practising Catholics are required to attend Mass. But the origins of Halloween go back many centuries before Christianity.
The day we observe as Halloween originated in the British Isles among the Celtic peoples. They called it the Feast Of Samhain (pronounced sow-WEN in Gaelic). Samhain was the Celtic ruler of the Underworld. On this night, Samhain would open the gates of the Underworld, and spirits, both good and evil would walk the Earth. It was a night of masques and bale fires when anything was possible and nothing was quite as it seemed. It was the time when the walls between the world of the living and the world of the dead were thinnest.
If people had to go out on this night, they wore masques so that if they encountered an evil spirit, it would think that they were one of them and leave them alone. Jack-O-Lanterns were carved and lit to frighten evil spirits away. However, interestingly enough, pumpkins were not used. The pumpkin is a New World vegetable, and the ancient Celts had no knowledge of them. Other gourd type vegetables such as turnips and squash were used.
They also lit bale fires and would make sacrifices of animals, and sometimes humans to welcome the return of the dead.
As time passed, and pagan beliefs were replaced by Christian Doctrine, and many of the old Celtic traditions went the way of the dinosaur. Some were turned into days of pure amusement, such as Halloween. Now the masques are used by children to get candy from their neighbours, instead of frightening evil spirits away. The same with Jack-O-Lanterns. Images of Samhain have been replaced by that of the Devil, witches, ghosts, and goblins.
A few Christian denominations consider Halloween the Devil's day, and they take it very seriously. In reality, it is not Satanic, but a pagan festival which no one takes seriously any longer. It's a night of fun to be enjoyed by all. Happy Halloween everyone!

Meteorologist John Coleman, who co-founded The Weather Channel, says the claim that human activity is leading to global warming is no longer scientifically credible.
Instead, the "little evidence" there is for rising global temperatures points to a "natural phenomenon," Coleman asserts.
In an open letter to the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), he wrote: "There is no climate crisis. The ocean is not rising significantly. The polar ice is increasing, not melting away. Polar bears are increasing in number.
"Heat waves have actually diminished, not increased. There is not an uptick in the number or strength of storms.
"I have studied this topic seriously for years. It has become a political and environmental agenda item, but the science is not valid."
Coleman says he based his views on the findings of the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (not to be confused with the U.N. panel), a body of scientists and scholars who assess the science of global warming.
"There is no significant man-made global warming at this time. There has been none in the past and there is no reason to fear any in the future," says Coleman, who was the original meteorologist on "Good Morning America."
"Efforts to prove the theory that carbon dioxide is a significant greenhouse gas and pollutant causing significant warming or weather effects have failed.
"There has been no warming over 18 years."
The U.N.’s IPCC argues that their research shows man-made global warming will lead to extreme weather events becoming more frequent and unpredictable, the Express in Britain reported.
Climate expert William Happer, a professor at Princeton University, expressed support for Coleman's claims.
"No chemical compound in the atmosphere has a worse reputation than CO2, thanks to the single-minded demonization of this natural and essential atmospheric gas by advocates of government control [of] energy production," Happer said.
"The incredible list of supposed horrors that increasing carbon dioxide will bring the world is pure belief disguised as science."
I love it! More and more mainstream scientists are speaking out against global warming. They are all saying the same thing: There has been no global warming for 18 years! And even if it starts warming again, it is part of a natural warming trend and Man should not try and alter it.
When humans stick their noses in where they don't belong it almost invariably causes more harm than good.
For example, if nature says the ice caps must warm and the Sahara must cool, God knows what kind of disaster we might cause if we interfere with this process.
Rather than trying to alter nature, we should work with it. When it comes to the environment, let nature's (or God's if you're religious) will be done, not ours.

Illegal immigrants charged with violent crimes and serious felonies were among the hundreds of criminals the Obama administration released from jails across the country in February 2013, newly released documents show.
According to records obtained by USA Today, the government released inmates charged with offenses ranging from kidnapping and sexual assault to drug trafficking, armed assault, and homicide.
The evidence contradicts previous assurances by the administration that the 617 criminals who were released as part of a cost-cutting exercise were low-risk offenders charged with misdemeanors "or other criminals whose prior conviction did not pose a violent threat to public safety," USA Today reported.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) admitted to the newspaper that numerous dangerous criminals had been released but denied direct responsibility.
"Discretionary releases made by ICE were of low-level offenders. However, the releases involving individuals with more significant criminal histories were, by and large, dictated by special circumstances outside of the agency's control," ICE spokeswoman Gillian Christensen told USA Today.
The new records obtained by the newspaper from a Freedom of Information Act request outlined previously undisclosed details about the alleged crimes of specific detainees. One person in Texas was charged with aggravated kidnapping and sexual assault of a child.
Another illegal immigrant from Florida was facing charges of conspiracy to commit homicide, according to USA Today.
Two Massachusetts detainees had been charged with aggravated assault using a weapon, while another illegal immigrant from Colorado was being held on a sexual assault charge.
The Obama administration released more than 2,200 illegal immigrants from jail between Feb. 9 and March 1, 2013, as part of an effort to cut the number of prisoners due to the budget-sequester funding cuts. The detainees had been awaiting deportation or immigration hearings in a court, and the administration did not give advance notice it would be freeing them.
The releases triggered a furor in Congress and hearings with lawmakers who grilled then-ICE director John Morton.
According to USA Today, Virginia GOP Rep. J. Randy Forbes asked Morton directly, "No one on that list has been charged or convicted with murder, rape, or sexual abuse of a minor, were they?"
Morton, who subsequently resigned, answered, "They were not."
Former White House spokesman Jay Carney had also described the criminals as "low-risk, noncriminal detainees," USA Today reported.
Meanwhile, Republican Sens. John McCain of Arizona and Tom Coburn of Oklahoma demanded a formal investigation by the inspector general.
The internal audit, which concluded in August 2014, concluded that ICE broke the law in releasing the criminal illegal migrants.
"It is baffling how an agency charged with homeland security and immigration enforcement would knowingly release hundreds of illegals with criminal histories. In this single action, ICE undermined its own credibility, the rule of law, and the safety of Americans and local law enforcement," Coburn said when the audit was released.
He added, "This report provides more evidence that our nation's immigration laws are being flagrantly disregarded. Americans need to be assured the problems within ICE that led to the dangerous release of illegal aliens will be fixed, and DHS and ICE will never again violate the law by releasing known criminals into our streets."
McCain said it is "deeply troubling that ICE would knowingly release thousands of undocumented immigrant detainees — many with prior criminal records — into our streets, while publicly downplaying the danger they posed," USA Today reported.
I don't seriously think dangerous criminals were purposely released by order of the administration. That would go beyond corruption. I think what really happen was that ICE was ordered to release a certain number of illegals and through a combination of trying to comply with that order, and not wanting to be bothered doing detailed background checks, 617 dangerous criminals were released. That's incompetence - which is only slightly better than corruption.
Unfortunately government incompetence is epidemic these days, right down to the clerks at the front desk, to the big shots at the top. No one wants to be bothered doing everything they are supposed to do.
Do you think this sort of thing happened in NS Germany? Well of course it did - occasionally. However when it was discovered those responsible were severely disciplined, unlike here where everything is just downplayed and swept under the rug.
This country desperately needs a system that will substantially reduce government incompetence, and remove those who do prove to be incompetent from their positions, from the guys at the top to the clerks at the bottom. That system is National Socialism.
One of the most irritating things about getting the royal screw job from a government agency is having the functionary at the front desk ignore you and shout, "NEXT!" Makes you want to smack them in the face. Of course just try it and you'll be under arrest for terrorism.

In this world we have many people who are "fair weather friends". As long as things are going well, they are right there. But as soon as the weather sours, they start to pull disappearing acts. Some of them go to the trouble of making excuses like, "My job is starting to take too much of my spare time." Another good one is, "My wife doesn't like it when I spend too much time with you guys." And there are many others.
I'm also not referring to people who leave temporarily due to reasons like a death in the family, short term illness, or a financial crisis that can be resolved quickly if you really dive in and take care of it.
There are also some who just quietly fade away. I prefer the ones who just fade away. You know they won't becoming back. Chances are the ones who make excuses won't be coming back either, but they don't want you to think poorly of them so they come up with a lot of BS hoping you will "understand."
Let me tell you this: Most of those excuses are crap. The only legitimate reasons I can think of are serious health issues which are permanent, or a death in the family - YOURS. Temporarily retiring from the fight for a good reason is one thing. Throwing up yours hands in defeat is another.
Also, if you have been a good NS soldier all your life and you are getting on in years, you have of course EARNED the right to pass on the torch to the young and retire from battle.
Dedication is what I'm talking about. Believing that something (such as our cause) is more important than yourself. That's the National Socialist way.
Sometimes I wonder what makes me so dedicated, and how I even got started in the first place.
Looking back, it all started in the third grade. I was still living in New Hampshire at the time. It was 1968. In class they showed us a documentary called "The Twisted Cross". It was about Hitler's rise to power and all the other high mucky-mucks of the NSDAP. There was nothing in it regarding the Holohoax.
I was totally fascinated. I have to admit that it was mainly the uniforms and banners, but then again what else would you expect from an eight or nine year old?
From then on I watched everything I could on TV that had anything even remotely to do with Nazis. Normally this sort of thing would give a person a negative view on National Socialism, but I was always skeptical of everything I was told. I never took anything at face value.
I remember going to Sunday school and being taught about the Bible. The very first time I heard the Adam and Eve story I thought to myself, "This kind of doesn't make sense."
When we were read Genesis 4:16 & 17 which stated, "And Cain went out from the presence of the Lord and dwelt in the land of Nod on the east of Eden. And Cain knew his wife..."
I immediately raised my hand and asked, "Where did she come from?"
The teacher asked, "Who?"
And I said, "Cain's wife. If in the beginning there was only Adam and Eve and Cain and Able, where did Mrs. Cain come from?"
I was quite amused years later when I first watched "Inherit The Wind" and the defense attorney asked the same question of the prosecutor almost verbatim.
Anyway, the teacher was not amused. She was quite upset that a six year old would dare to question the Bible. She told me only sinners question the Bible. It bothered me for awhile, but I couldn't help questioning.
Shortly thereafter my folks bought me my first dinosaur book which explained the Theory Of Evolution in terms a child could understand. Right away I thought, "This makes a lot of sense."
As I got older, I understood that what we were being taught about the Nazis was coloured by the fact that United States fought NS Germany. In war, enemies ALWAYS lie about each other. It's all part of wartime propaganda. I also came to learn that the winners often continue their lies long after the war ended to continue to justify any terrible things they may have done. I kept questioning.
I learned about Hitler's "Mein Kampf" as a child, but I was smart enough to know that it was too advanced for me. I just kept up my healthy skepticism until I was old enough to read the book.
Now I have to admit that as I got older, I started to develop a bit of a lazy streak. It's not uncommon for teenagers. I was basically too lazy read it.
By the time I got to college, I had taken a class where we were assigned to read certain chapters of "Mein Kampf." Of course I knew that the liberal professor (who admitted to being a Socialist) would distort everything the Fuhrer said, so I took it all with a grain of salt.
I didn't actually become really concerned about the welfare of our people until the late 1990's. By then the changes that were taking place were becoming obvious. But I didn't know what I could do about it. I hadn't gotten my first computer yet, and I didn't even know if the ANP or any similar organization still existed. I remembered hearing about the NSWPP in the 70's, along with Frank Cohen's group, but I hadn't heard anything recently. For all I knew they no longer even existed. I knew the Klan was around but the idea of running around in sheets didn't sound right for me.
After I did get my first computer, I typed in "American Nazi Party" and the ANP's website was top of the list.
At first I knew nothing about them, so I watched. I read Chairman Suhayda's bi-monthly ANP Reports, and studied the entire site. I was very impressed, but I was afraid to make a commitment. That was in part due to the fact that I was taught that you should always finish what you start, and once you make a commitment, you should stick to it. My mother taught me that.
It wasn't until 2008 that I decided to take the first real step. I started by subscribing to the White Worker. Then giving out literature. I was even considering going all the way to Detroit to attend the ANP's first meeting in years.
It was at this time I got distracted. I learned about a so-called NS group called the National Socialist American Labor Party (NSALP). I won't go into any great detail, but I learned that there was something not right about them. I honestly can't say EXACTLY who and what they may have been, but we have our suspicions, which I won't go into here. Let's just say that things didn't work out with them. It did last over a year, though.
Directly because of my association with the NSALP I became involved with one of the Aryan Nations factions. This one was called Aryan Nations 88. Now Chairman Suhayda tried to warn me about these characters but I wouldn't listen. In my own defense, no one likes to be told they are making the wrong decision, do they? It took my meeting most of them in person that made my realize that this group wasn't for me.
So after going all round the houses for two years, I ended up back with the ANP. Even though I was with the wrong groups for two years, Chairman Suhayda was impressed at my hard work and dedication - and the chairman isn't easy to impress. Instead of the normal one year time as an Official Supporter, he cut it to six months, and even let me apply to join the Security Arm almost right away.
It wasn't too long before he offered to appoint me West Coast Organizer and I was accepted into the SA. Since then I have done my best not to disappoint him. I won't go into detail about everything I've done because that would be bragging and I don't do that. But through hard work and dedication I have tried to accomplish something to help our Folk.
I can't say how good an effect my efforts have been or will be, but I can say this: If we lose, it won't be because I didn't try.

These creepy photographs log how America celebrated Halloween from 1875 to 1955, covering a period of time where the nation rebuilt itself after the Civil War and turned into a global superpower.
The macabre images show families celebrating Halloween dressed in a variety of home made customs featuring the devil, ghouls and various creatures from the other world.
Popular themes include devils, witches and animals.
The earliest images come in the years while America was rebuilt following the end of the Civil War in 1865.
The pictures were collated by English artist Ossian Brown for his book Haunted Air.
He said: 'I find their haunting melancholy completely absorbing; all of these photographs now torn out, disembodied and forgotten - they've now become fully and utterly the masks and phantoms they dragged up as, all those years ago.'
Halloween is a purely White tradition. In pre-Christian Europe the Celts called it The Feast Of Samhain (a Gaelic word pronounced sow-WEN). It was a time when the walls between the world of the living and the world of the dead were the thinnest, and spirits of the underworld walked the Earth.

Today I just want to finish up a few more points, plus give a little equal time.
First, you saw many photos of today's high school students. Below are two different photos of graduating classes from the 1960's. Count the pale faces in those and compare them to today's. You will have to click on some for a better look.
All White. How many Whites would there be on this team today? Statistically there would be no more than two. Realistically, possibly zero.
In just 50 years we went from an 80% majority to a 10% minority. It is expected that we will decrease in numbers to as low as 5% sometime between 2020 to 2030. For all intents and purposes we will have disappeared completely from San Bernardino by the year 2030.
If this doesn't scare the hell out of you I don't know what will. In my opinion it is too late for San Bernardino. It will NEVER recover. It is lost to the Mestizos.
As to Blacks, if any of you read this make no mistake. YOU ARE NEXT! Once we're gone, or at least all but gone they'll push you out too. If you don't believe me then don't complain when you're numbers start dwindling. Don't go running to the NAACP to save you. You had your chance and you said, "Naw, it won't happen to us." That's what we said in 1964. Look at us now. We're all but finished here.
The same thing will happen in places where we are still the majority. My home state of New Hampshire is still 93.5% White - today. What will it be like in 50 years? Not much better than in San Bernardino today. And if you think this only happened here because of our proximity to Mexico, well you've been warned. If you don't listen then you'll get what you deserve: A non-White America.
A Few Final Things
San Bernardino can boast of two things: One famous, one infamous.
The famous thing is Berdoo is the the birthplace of McDonalds. The first McDonalds was founded here in the 1950's. The first one has been restored and is now a museum just off of Route 66.
Fifteen cents for a burger? Can you imagine? And I'll bet they tasted better and were better for you than the garbage they serve today. I'll bet the McDonald brothers Richard and Maurice would be sickened at what has become of what they began.
Now for the infamous thing.
You probably can't read the small sign hanging over the front door. It reads, "Hell's Angels, Chapter One." Yes, Berdoo has the dubious distinction of being the birthplace of the Hell's Angels.
One final thing. I bet your small children would love to spend the night in this motel on Route 66.
The Wigwam Motel. Some local Indians tried to force them to change the name because it is racially "offensive". Believe it or not they failed because the Wigwam Motel was declared a cultural landmark. Go figure.

As I said yesterday, the racial demographics of San Bernardino, or "Berdoo" as it is sometimes called is 70% Hispanic, 15% Black, 10% White, and 5% miscellaneous. We don't have a lot of Asians. If you want to see Asians in California you're better off visiting Orange County. Except for San Francisco, the OC has the highest Asian population in the state.
Now I could have taken my camera and hit the streets, but that would have meant driving all over the place, plus when taking those pictures, I might have run into a lot of, "Hey, what are you doing there?!" from a lot of the wrong sort. I opted to get them off the internet.
One of the best indicators of the racial make up of an area are the children. It was an easy matter to visit the official websites of local high schools which contain lots of pictures of the students. The majority of the faculties of these schools are White, but the teachers and administrators do not necessarily live in the area. California has a reputation for commuters, and it is well deserved. Some people commute well over 50 miles each way to work by car.
Bear in mind our public transportation system is one of the worst in the country. In New York City you have Ls, subways, buses, and taxis at practically every major intersection. Not Berdoo. We have a bus system, and a commuter train that goes to Los Angeles, but nowhere else in Berdoo. Taxis must be called. The only place taxis can be found hanging out waiting for fares are at the train station and the Greyhound station. We have no subway and no L (elevated trains).
Also bear in mind this is earthquake country. The San Andreas Fault is only about 20 miles to the east between us and Palm Springs. BTW, just east of the fault is the town of Mentone. It's nickname is Mentone Beach. Why? The coast is 70 miles west. Because if the big one ever hits, Mentone will become a beach town. Anyway, being earthquake country we have no skyscrapers. Everything is built low, meaning everything is farther apart than in other parts of the country. Walking is less practical and having transportation, whether public or personal is more important than in say Manhatten.
You can click on the pictures to see them larger. Count how many pale faces you see versus how many brown faces. Remember, don't count the adults because they are school staff members and may not live in the area.
These are staff and students from Cajon High School in Berdoo, even though the photo was taken in a local mall.
I found a couple of examples of local art in the form of murals. They have a Hispanic theme and style. I couldn't find a single example of White themed art.
The above mural is multi-cultural drivel.
See what I mean? And BTW, is this next picture in Mexico, or Berdoo?
The answer is it's in San Bernardino, but it does look like it was built in Mexico and picked up and plunked right down here. Considering who the racial majority is, is it any surprise? Imagine seeing a church like this in someplace like Boise, Idaho. If things continue the way they are, you will.
Tomorrow: Equal Time

Before we get into the nitty-gritty of the racial problems of San Bernardino, I thought it was important for those of you totally unfamiliar with the area to know some facts about it first. I got my information from Wikipedia.
Just bear in mind this is only a small part of what we can expect when the entire country is under Mestizo rule. May God help us all.
San Bernardino is a city located in the Riverside-San Bernardino metropolitan area (sometimes called the "Inland Empire"). It serves as the county seat of San Bernardino County, California, United States. As one of the Inland Empire's anchor cities, San Bernardino spans 81 square miles (210 km2) on the floor of the San Bernardino Valley, and has a population of 209,924 as of the 2010 census. San Bernardino is the 17th largest city in California, and the 99th largest city in the United States. San Bernardino is home to multiple diplomatic missions for the Inland Empire, being one of only four California cities with multiple consulates (the three other cities being Los Angeles, San Diego and San Francisco). The governments of Guatemala (opening July 2014) and Mexico have established their consulates in the downtown area of the city.
California State University, San Bernardino is located in the northeastern part of the city. The university also hosts the Coussoulis Arena. Other attractions in San Bernardino include ASU Fox Theatre, the McDonald's Museum, which is located on the original site of the world's first McDonald's (at ), California Theatre, the San Bernardino Mountains, and San Manuel Amphitheater, the largest outdoor amphitheater in the United States. In addition, the city is home to the Inland Empire 66ers baseball team, they play their home games at San Manuel Stadium in downtown San Bernardino.
In July 2012, San Bernardino became the largest city to that date to choose to file for protection under Chapter 9 of the U.S. Bankruptcy code; this has been superseded by Detroit's filing in July 2013. San Bernardino's case was filed on August 1.
San Bernardino is the poorest city of its population size in California, and the second poorest in the US next to Detroit, Michigan.
Racial, Religious, and Language Demographics
70% Mestizo, 15% Black, 10% White, and 5% miscellaneous.
The predominant religion is Roman Catholic.
50% of the population are bi-lingual Spanish-English. 30% are Spanish only. 10% are English only. 10% are bi-lingual English-Other.
San Bernardino has a dry, hot climate with not much rainfall - especially with the drought plaguing the Central and Southern regions of California. The area is part of the Lower Mojave Desert and frequently experiences summer temperatures in excess of 110 degrees.
Winter temperatures at night can drop to the lower 40's accompanied by high winds.
San Bernardino is at the mouth of the Cajon Pass which leads to the Upper Mojave Desert and as a result is frequently slammed with winds in excess of 70 MPH during the winter months. Our greatest winter problems are not snow or rain, but wind storms.
As the second poorest large city in the country, San Bernardino suffers from a great deal of urban blight.
Streets like these are common, rather than exceptions.
As urban blight increases, more businesses desert the area. The Carousel Mall is practically empty and in bankruptcy.
Empty store fronts are common in the downtown area.
As the more affluent Whites flee the area, they leave behind the lower middle class, the working class, and the impoverished - most (but not all) are non-White. When the affluent flee, local businesses begin to shut down.
This happens in a geometrical progression. First a few leave, then more, and more, and so on.
To give you an idea of what I mean, San Bernardino had two Synagogues a few years ago. One actually shut down because of a lack of membership. Not that I'm sorry they left, but Jews - who tend to be more affluent - started to leave when the Mestizos started to come.
Tomorrow: The People Of San Bernardino.

Folks, yesterday I said there may be a delay in the special posts I was planning because there may be a death in the family. Unfortunately that happened Tuesday afternoon at a local hospital. This one hit me harder than the last one.
Because of this sad event in my life, I did not have the chance to gather the material I needed to begin my posts, and I really am not up to writing this evening. I hope to start the posts tomorrow, but for now I'm taking it one day at a time.
Tuesday, October 21, 2014
Comrade Steve Davenport, one of the ANP's most important members gave me an excellent suggestion for posts on this blog the other day. I'm sure you've all read his articles that usually accompany Chairman Suhayda's bi-monthly ANP Reports. He also runs his own blog for the State of Ohio.
As I live in California - one of the several states where Whites are already a minority - I can give a glimpse of this country's future under Mestizo rule. For those of you who live in the Southwest and Texas, as well as those of you who live in California, this will be old news to you. But for the rest, it might be an eye opener.
Many of you complain how you can't stand Blacks and how much trouble they cause. Well if you are one of the ones who feel like that, then as someone once said, "You ain't seen nothin' yet!"
These posts will run at least two days - possibly more (not counting Sunday), however it may take another day or two before I'm ready to proceed. I just wanted to announce these posts in advance. And I will include lots of photos from the very area that I live in. I will continue to make my regular posts daily until I'm ready to begin.
However, there is a possibility of delays due to a possible death in my family (not my father) so I'll have to take things one day at a time, but I want to begin this new project as soon as possible which is why I'm announcing this now.

Democrats are now sounding more like Republicans on the Ebola crisis, with candidates in critical races calling this week for travel bans to avoid being tied to yet another Obama administration debacle as Election Day nears.
"It is just common sense that we need a travel ban from West Africa," Democratic pollster and analyst Doug Schoen told Newsmax on Saturday. "And Democrats have realized that in tight Senate races that hang in the balance it is common sense, not partisanship, that gives them the best chance of getting elected."
This is particularly acute "in a year where the president's job approval is at or below 40 percent in swing states," Schoen said.
Perhaps the biggest flip-flop came on Friday, when North Carolina Sen. Kay Hagan called for a West African ban — two days after dismissing it as a way to contain the deadly disease.
"I have said for weeks that travel restrictions should be one part of a broad strategy to prevent Ebola from spreading in the U.S. and fighting it in Africa," Hagan said in a statement on Friday. "I am calling on the administration to temporarily ban the travel of non-U.S. citizens from the affected countries in West Africa.
"Although stopping the spread of this virus overseas will require a large, coordinated effort with the international community, a temporary travel ban is a prudent step the President can take to protect the American people, and I believe he should do so immediately," Hagan said.
But on Wednesday, Hagan said on a campaign stop in Charlotte that a West African travel ban was "not going to help solve this problem. That's not going to contain the epidemic that we see happening in Africa."
She also heaped praise on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization, saying that they were "certainly giving us great guidance, but we've got to make sure the implementation is perfect."
Both organizations have come under harsh attack by Republicans for missteps in the Ebola crisis — and reports surfaced this week that poor communication and a leadership vacuum plagued the WHO's response to the outbreak in West Africa.
"When they talk about these breaches, we are going to learn from these mistakes," Hagan said on Wednesday. "These are life crises, mistakes that we cannot make."
Hagan's Republican opponent, North Carolina House Speaker Thom Tillis, immediately jumped on Hagan's turnabout on Friday, saying on Twitter: "When I came out strongly for an Ebola travel ban, Sen. Hagan said it wouldn't help. Now she agrees with me?"
Tillis first called for the travel ban on Oct. 2, The Weekly Standard reports.
Two Democrats also running in heated contests, Arkansas Sen. Mark Pryor, who is trailing GOP Rep. Tom Cotton, and Georgia nonprofit executive Michelle Nunn, who is squaring off against Republican businessman David Perdue, have called for travel bans.
Both Republicans called for restrictions shortly after news reports surfaced that Thomas Eric Duncan had become the first U.S. Ebola patient. Duncan, 42, died on Oct. 8 in a Dallas hospital from the disease.
Duncan came to the United States four days after helping a pregnant woman in Liberia who later died from the disease. He did not tell U.S. screening officials that he had contact with someone carrying Ebola.
Two nurses who were among the 70 medical professionals treating Duncan at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital have since contracted Ebola.
They are Nina Pham, 26, who is now at the National Institutes of Health in Maryland for treatment, and Amber Joy Vinson, 29, who is being cared for at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta.
Other analysts attribute the Democratic turnabouts to a fear that Republicans see a chance to tie the crisis to Obama's ineffective leadership.
"This is feeding into the Republican narrative that Democrats don't know how to govern and government is too large," Jim Manley, a former aide to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, told The Washington Post.
Manley told the Post that Democrats were "desperate to try to demonstrate that they have tough ideas to respond to the crisis."
But Republicans stepped up their calls for a travel ban throughout the week, while others slammed President Barack Obama's choice of a longtime political operative with no medical experience, Ron Klain, to head the administration's response to the crisis.
Klain, 53, a lawyer and former chief of staff to Vice President Joe Biden and to former Vice President Al Gore, will report to National Security Adviser Susan Rice and the president’s homeland security adviser, Lisa Monaco.
He has a long background in politics, including representing Gore in the Florida recount in 2000. His official biography lists no experience in public health.
"What has been missing from this administration’s response to Ebola is not a new figurehead," Michigan Rep. Fred Upton, chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, said after the appointment was announced. "What we need is a strategy to get ahead of this, and restore the public’s faith that they are safe."
Pennsylvania GOP Rep. Tim Murphy, whose oversight committee grilled CDC officials on the situation on Thursday, called Klain's selection “shocking and frankly tone-deaf to what the American people are concerned about."
The changes among Democrats also come as surveys show that Americans have little faith in the CDC's ability to handle the Ebola crisis.
Sixty percent of Americans surveyed this week by CBS News rated the agency as fair or poor, compared with 37 percent who rated it as excellent or good.
And a Washington Post-ABC News poll shows 67 percent of Americans supported restricting entry to the United States from countries dealing with an Ebola crisis.
Tennessee Rep. Marsha Blackburn slammed the vague answers administration officials gave at the House subcommittee hearing on Thursday.
"This is just something where you've got to say: 'Come on. You guys get your act together and let's go to work on this,' " the Republican told Newsmax after the session.
"We're here to work with them," Blackburn added. "We're here to protect the American people — and it was disappointing that they couldn't answer the questions.
"They knew we were going to have this hearing," she said. "They've known about this hearing for nearly two weeks."
What a bunch of hypocrites! Isn't it strange that the Democrats are having this "change of heart" just two weeks before the election? No way is it a coincidence.
They see which way the wind is blowing. The American people are frightened of an Ebola epidemic. They want a West African travel ban. The Democrats - who are in serious danger of losing control of the Senate - realize that if they don't back what the people want then many of them will be out of jobs in November so of course they are doing flip-flops.
Will it change anything? I am sad to say that the gullible Democratic American voters will back their Democratic Senators as long as they come out in favour of a travel ban. Then these senators will get reelected, and you know what will happen? Absolutely nothing is what. They'll either announce that they have changed their minds again or will quietly do nothing about instituting a travel ban. And the sucker voters will fall right into their trap. They just can't or won't see that they are being scammed by the best con artists around: Professional politicians.
Well, as our chairman always says, "We all get the America we deserve."
Don't lose hope. This Ebola thing may be just what we have been waiting for. If things get bad enough, maybe the people will really wake up. It's already begun in regards to illegal immigration, and if Ebola starts to spread here, the people will know that the government is full of nothing but ZOG lackeys, incompetents, and crooks. It's just a shame that many innocent but gullible people may die for the rest to see the truth. But more often than not, this is usually the way it has to be.
