End African Ebola Outbreak by ending ALL financial AID to Africa

Ebola's current spread - from The Economist
Want to REALLY help Africa?  STOP SENDING THEM MONEY.

From 2005, reason why from African Economist regarding Kenya :

"SPIEGEL: Mr. Shikwati, the G8 summit at Gleneagles is about to beef up the development aid for Africa...
Shikwati: ... for God's sake, please just stop.
SPIEGEL: Stop? The industrialized nations of the West want to eliminate hunger and poverty.
Shikwati: Such intentions have been damaging our continent for the past 40 years. If the industrial nations really want to help the Africans, they should finally terminate this awful aid. The countries that have collected the most development aid are also the ones that are in the worst shape. Despite the billions that have poured in to Africa, the continent remains poor.

SPIEGEL: Do you have an explanation for this paradox?

Shikwati: Huge bureaucracies are financed (with the aid money), corruption and complacency are promoted, Africans are taught to be beggars and not to be independent. In addition, development aid weakens the local markets everywhere and dampens the spirit of entrepreneurship that we so desperately need. As absurd as it may sound: Development aid is one of the reasons for Africa's problems. If the West were to cancel these payments, normal Africans wouldn't even notice. Only the functionaries would be hard hit. Which is why they maintain that the world would stop turning without this development aid.

SPIEGEL: Even in a country like Kenya, people are starving to death each year. Someone has got to help them.

Shikwati: But it has to be the Kenyans themselves who help these people. When there's a drought in a region of Kenya, our corrupt politicians reflexively cry out for more help. This call then reaches the United Nations World Food Program -- which is a massive agency of apparatchiks who are in the absurd situation of, on the one hand, being dedicated to the fight against hunger while, on the other hand, being faced with unemployment were hunger actually eliminated. It's only natural that they willingly accept the plea for more help. And it's not uncommon that they demand a little more money than the respective African government originally requested. They then forward that request to their headquarters, and before long, several thousands tons of corn are shipped to Africa ..."

The Conservative Treehouse has some insight on why disease spreads in Africa and other "third world" countries. Their "health professionals" aka 'doctors' and 'nurses' DO NOT WASH THEIR HANDS!:

"What she has been facing in Liberia in the last twelve+ months since she arrived there was/is precisely the same as what my friend in Madagascar describes.

She has had to do polite but determined battle even with the doctors on staff at the fledgling hospital regarding washing hands and doing procedures properly, not taking short cuts in surgery because of frustration, enforcing 100% performance with regard to sterilized instruments in surgery, etc.

When the ebola menace appeared on their radar this spring she had had about ten months with that hospital, those doctors, and the nursing staff.

When they began their ramp-up in May or so, they had to force the understanding that the completely suit-up in the space suits was not optional where ebola was concerned. It was a flat requirement. No, the families would not be allowed to come and squat in the hospital with their family member who would be in isolation. No, they would not be allowed to touch them or cook for them.

This is the battleground in Liberia and Madagascar. There’s no evidence of ebola in Madagascar that I’ve heard of – just acknowledging those are my two points of first hand information from medical professionals on the scene.

So when you hear about the Nigerian government taking action, or a certain measure being imposed in Monrovia – that’s fine. But it’s not significant in terms of practical impact when you consider what the reality is throughout the nation(s) as soon as you’ve passed the city limits.

This horse is already way out of the barn. The announcements, pronouncements, and edicts being issued now are for PR purposes. They may have limited effect in limited situations. May have."

CRIKEY - >> African "health professionals" have NOT EVEN LEARNED they have to wash their flipping hands and cover up OPEN WOUNDS so disease won't spread!

And WHY haven't they LEARNED this?  Because USA and other countries keep HELPING THEM and giving "them" money - African has NOT learned. The only thing they've learned is PERPETUAL VICTIMHOOD.

STOP SENDING HELP OR ANY MONEY. Period.

They HAVE to learn THEMSELVES.  If a few thousand DIE, perhaps they'll get motivated to HELP THEIR DAMN SELVES.

12 examples of O-golfer's foreign policy horrors

JR Dunn at American Thinker outlines JUST a few of the O-golfer-in-chief's administration's foreign policy horrors:

The deliberate alienation of the UK.
The deliberate undermining of Israel.
The dismissal of India.
The abandonment of Africa.
A back of the hand to Central Europe.
The Russian “reset”.
The North African apocalypse.
The demolition of Syria.
The failure to back the “Green Revolution” in Iran.
Refusal to address the Iranian nuclear threat.
The collapse of Iraq.
The China Seas confrontation.
The rape of Ukraine.

..."Looking at the record laid out like this, it’s easy to understand the more hysterical types who insist that it’s all part of a plan, that Obama is a super Bond villain set on bringing Western civilization down in ruins. But in fact, it’s all a result of long-term leftist ideas, chief among them, in the case of foreign policy, that A) the United States is the source of the world’s ills, and B) Remove American influence and the world will soon revert to a humanist, collectivist modus vivendi. "

"(There’s also a third such concept at work in this case as well: the idea that women, with their practicality and compassion, would, once in charge of international relationships, soon put things is order where men have failed for millennia. This is the reason behind Obama’s hiring of Hillary Clinton, an incompetent egomaniac matched only by himself, Susan Rice, who consistently seems lost somewhere between confusion and bewilderment, and Samantha Power, whose “Responsibility to Protect” doctrine strangely disappeared once she needed to defend the Obama administration’s Syria dithering. The results speak for themselves.) "

"That’s the program that Obama has been carrying out. That’s the basis of “leading from behind,” the “reset,” various Springs and Dawns, and the abandonment of the UK, Israel, Poland, the Czech Republic, India, Iraq, and Afghanistan. The outcome has been what any high school history student could have told you: invasion, brutality, and genocide. Throughout history, the only instrument to successfully enforce peace has been the superstate: Persia, Rome, the Ottomans, Britannia, the United States of America. The dominant power must act as the dominant power or as nothing. Obama, lost in his choom gang 1970s daydreams, has made the nihilistic choice, and now millions will pay for it."

"What can be done? Very little, at this point."

YEP!   THAT is the kicker, ain't it??!!

I don't think my suggestion of tar and feathers is going to happen.

NEXT potus? Has a HUGE mess to start cleaning up.

why Benghazi still matters

From 2012 Canada Free Press:

"Based on information provided by my source and corroborated elsewhere, the official account by administration officials is a mosaic of lies that were necessary to cover the unpalatable truth of covert actions taking place in Libya, Syria, Turkey, Jordan and Lebanon. The primary objective of our covert actions was to secretly arm anti-Assad “rebels” in Syria by funnelling arms from Libya to Syria via Turkey, with other destinations that included Jordan and Lebanon. Regarding the threat to Stevens and the other murdered Americans, the truth will reformat the persistent question posed to government officials, from UN Ambassador Susan Rice to White House Spokesman Jay Carney and others from “how could you not have known” to “how could you have done these things?”

First, it is important to understand that Ambassador Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Dougherty and Tyrone Woods were not killed at a consulate office in Benghazi—as there is not such office there. They died at one of the largest CIA operations centers in the Middle East, which was located in Benghazi and served as the logistics headquarters for arms and weapons being shipped out of the post-Qaddafi Libya."

Gee, you think THIS would have made a DIFFERENCE in the 2012 election.  HEY MITT ROMNEY - coulda, shoulda, woulda - you SHOULD have gotten better intel about Benghazi before nice-guy-approach debates with the protected golfer-in-chief.  Remember the Left insisted/insists THEY had/have decimated al Qaeda?  (yeah nooot so much)

Trey Gowdy vows to find out the truth about Benghazi.  How far will the muslim-enabling O-regime allow this investigation?  Will Mr. Gowdy befall an untimely accident?  The Clintons and all communists like to kill adversaries.  Shhh, don't tell anyone.

We're waiting Mr. Gowdy.  Get to work.

must read: Dave Barry’s Review of 2013, the Year of the Zombies

hattip Rick Moran at AT

This is TOO funny not to share.  Check out Dave Berry's wrap up of the zombie apocalyptic year that was 2013.

An excerpt:

"It was the Year of the Zombies. Not in the sense of most of humanity dying from a horrible plague and then reanimating as mindless flesh-eating ghouls. No, it was much worse than that. Because as bad as a zombie apocalypse would be, at least it wouldn’t involve the resurrection of Anthony Weiner’s most private part."

"We thought that thing was out of our lives forever, but suddenly there it was again, all over the Internet, as Weiner came back from the political grave like the phoenix, the mythical bird that arose from the ashes to run for mayor of New York and use the name “Carlos Danger” to text obscene photos of its privates to somebody named “Sydney Leathers.”

"We miss 2012."

"But getting back to the zombies: It wasn’t just people who came back alarmingly in 2013. The Cold War with Russia came back. Al-Qaeda came back. Turmoil in the Middle East came back. The debt ceiling came back. The major league baseball drug scandal came back. Dennis Rodman came back and went on humanitarian missions to North Korea (or maybe we just hallucinated that). The Endlessly Looming Government Shutdown came back. People lining up to buy iPhones to replace iPhones that they bought only minutes earlier came back."

"Were there any new trends in 2013? Yes, but they were not good. Kale, for example. Suddenly this year restaurants started putting kale into everything, despite the fact that it is an unappetizing form of plant life that until recently was used primarily for insulation. Even goats will not eat it. Goats, when presented with kale, are like, “No, thanks, we’ll just chew on used seat cushions.”

Another annoying 2013 trend was people who think it is clever to say “hashtag” in front of everything. Listen carefully, people who think this is clever: Hashtag shut up."

READ THE REST HERE... SOOOO funny... #ShutUp all right!

Bye bye 2013, you were el stinko. Let's make 2014 a BETTER damn year...  Shall we?!

Push back against Hollywood's "evil" soldier/veteran stereotype

Hollywood CONTINUALLY depicts USA soldiers, veterans as heartless cruel killers. Really?

They are FAR from it. 

A recent example from Daily Mail UK features this guy:


I wouldn't tangle with this guy, would YOU?!?!  He's a USA Army Special forces guy in Afghanistan - and sure looks like one tough mother-f**er. 

When he was out on patrol, something caught his eye.  If he was a heartless cruel killer like Hollywood pushes (constantly in LOTS of movies), he wouldn't have batted an eye when he saw what was happening.  This is what he did instead: he RESCUED a helpless being.

A puppy. 

With the help of donations and Nowzad (a British dog rescue org): the puppy (Yakkul) he rescued made it out of the hell hole of Afghanistan back home to Valatie, NY.

I'll be praying this brave warrior with a kind heart makes it home safely after his tour(s) finish.

... and Hollywood be damned.

Suggested reading list for 2014

I haven't been blogging much last few months.  I've been on Twitter and Facebook a lot, but just haven't felt much like writing.  I'd like to write more and am making that a goal for 2014.  I'd also like to read a bit more - about topics which interest me.  Conservatism is one very important topic.  I think Conservative principles will be the only saving path for America's restoration.  Leftism must dwindle.

Here is a very interesting list of 10 best conservative columnists of 2013 by Dave Swindle at PJMedia.

Have you read anything by below authors?  I plan to research and read more - looks like this is a good starting point:

10) Ross Douthat
9) Frank Gaffney
8) Daniel Pipes
7) Rich Lowry
6) Jonah Goldberg
5) Mark Steyn
4) Dennis Prager
3) Ben Shapiro
