Total lunar eclipse on Wednesday will have an unusual twist

Total lunar eclipse on Wednesday will have an unusual twist

Observers of Wednesday morning's total lunar eclipse might be able to catch sight of an extremely rare cosmic sight.
On Oct. 8, Interested skywatchers should attempt to see the total eclipse of the moon and the rising sun simultaneously. The little-used name for this effect is called a "selenelion," a phenomenon that celestial geometry says cannot happen.
And indeed, during a lunar eclipse, the sun and moon are exactly 180 degrees apart in the sky. In a perfect alignment like this (called a "syzygy"), such an observation would seem impossible. But thanks to Earth's atmosphere, the images of both the sun and moon are apparently lifted above the horizon by atmospheric refraction. This allows people on Earth to see the sun for several extra minutes before it actually has risen and the moon for several extra minutes after it has actually set. [How to See the Total Lunar Eclipse (Visibility Maps)]
As a consequence of this atmospheric trick, for many localities east of the Mississippi River, watchers will have a chance to observe this unusual sight firsthand. Weather permitting, you could have a short window of roughly 2 to 9 minutes (depending on your location) with the possibility of simultaneously seeing the sun rising in the east while the eclipsed full moon is setting in the west.
Regions of visibility
From Newfoundland, the start of the partial stages of the total eclipse begins about 30 to 45 minutes before moonset.
A growing scallop of darkness will appear on the upper left part of the moon when it sets as the sun is coming up. Across eastern Nova Scotia, only the lowermost portion of the moon will be in view as it drops below the western horizon. Farther to the west and south along the Atlantic seaboard, the moon will rise completely immersed in the Earth's shadow.

The map shows the visibility regions for the Oct. 8, 2014 total lunar eclipse, which is the second of four consecutive total eclipses of the moon between 2014 and 2015. Sky & Telescope Magazine released this viewing map.

Now you see it ... now you don't?
Then again, sighting a selenelion might be problematic feat. Twenty-five years ago, in the August 1989 issue of Sky & Telescope, Bradley Schaefer, an astronomer who extensively studied the visibility of the moon when it was low in the sky, noted that the full moon only becomes visible when it is about 2 degrees up and the sun is about 2 degrees below the horizon.
So, depending on the clarity of your sky, you might have up to roughly 10 to 15 minutes before sunrise for the sky to still be dark enough, and the moon to be high enough above any horizon haze for it to be clearly visible. And keep in mind that this holds only for the uneclipsed portion of the moon. You might, however, be able to mitigate the effects of a brightening sky somewhat by using binoculars or a telescope.
If the moon is totally eclipsed prior to sunrise, you probably are going to have to scan the western horizon with binoculars as the twilight brightens in order to still detect some semblance of the Moon, which will somewhat resemble a very dim and eerily illuminated mottled softball.

This chart shows the times of the end-stages of a total lunar eclipse taking place on Oct. 8, 2014.
A peculiar moonset
People who live in those portions of the United States and Canada that are a few hundred miles inland from the Eastern Seaboard should have a good view of the Moon's emergence from the umbra somewhat later. The low, partially eclipsed Moon in deep-blue twilight should offer a wide variety of interesting scenic possibilities for both artists and astrophotographers. From Toronto and points south through the eastern Ohio Valley and into the Piedmont to the Florida Gulf Coast, a peculiar-looking, waxing crescent moon with its cusps pointing downward will appear to set beyond the western horizon.
Farther west, across the western Great Lakes and down through the Deep South to the Gulf of Mexico, the moon will appear to be notched on its lower right side by the shadow.
Going still farther west, the Moon will go down "full," but if the western horizon is haze-free, assiduous observers from much of Minnesota, western Iowa, eastern portions of Nebraska and Kansas as well as central sections of Oklahoma and Texas might still be able to detect a faint penumbral stain on the moon's lower right limb.

“I got goosebumps,” Man accused of beheading Oklahoma woman convicted of assaulting trooper in 2010

“I got goosebumps,” Man accused of beheading Oklahoma woman convicted of assaulting trooper in 2010

MOORE, Okla. – Before the deadly attack at Vaughan Foods on Thursday, officials say the alleged suspect had a long, violent past.
Authorities say 30-year-old Alton Nolen is recovering from gunshot wounds following the brutal attack.
Sgt. Jeremy Lewis, with the Moore Police Department, says Nolen was fired from his job at the distribution center before the violence erupted.
Nolen is accused of stabbing 54-year-old Colleen Hufford multiple times and severing her head.
After that, officials say Nolen began attacking 43-year-old Traci Johnson.
At that point, Nolen was shot by Oklahoma County Reserve Deputy Sheriff Mark Vaughan, who used to own the business.
Now, investigators are looking into what sparked the deadly attack.
During a news conference on Thursday, Sgt. Lewis says the FBI has been called in to investigate Nolen’s background.
He says that after conducting interviews with co-workers, authorities learned Nolen was trying to “convert coworkers to the Muslim religion.”
An online search showed Nolen created a Facebook page, using the name Jah’Kemm Yisreal.
The page includes images of the alleged suspect praying, mixed with what appears to be armed radicals and even Osama Bin Ladin.
However, religious leaders in the state say investigators should look at Nolen’s past to find out how he could allegedly commit such terrible crimes.
“What this man did in Moore was barbaric, but it is not representative of what our faith teaches,” said Adam Soltani, the executive director of the Council on American Islamic Relations for Oklahoma. “We condemn any act of violence, especially those perpetrated in the name of our faith.”
A search of court records shows Nolen also has a criminal past, beginning with drug charges in 2006 and in 2009.
In 2010, Nolen sparked a manhunt after being pulled over near Langston and assaulting a state trooper.
He served two years in prison for that crime before being released early last year.
However, authorities say a bulk of his sentence had been suspended.
“It seems there are some other things that I hope investigators will look at as far as his termination and his criminal background. I mean, he obviously has a criminal past and what he did was a crime but our religion of Islam in no way, shape or form promotes violence, promotes crime and definitely does not promote the taking of innocent lives,” said Soltani.
Lt. Betsy Randolph, with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, says she will never forget Nolen because she was injured while trying to arrest him.
“I was working Logan County trooper that night, working an evening shift and stopped this individual because he drove past me. I was on the shoulder of Hwy 33 and it looked like he had a fake paper tag, so I stopped him for that,” said Lt. Randolph. “In the course of our, he was in the car with me, I had him come back  because he didn’t have a license or any insurance. And when I ran his information, he had two warrants out of Oklahoma County, one for possession of CDCs and intent to distribute. So, he was also driving on suspension. So, I was already going to take him to jail. I was able to get one handcuff on him before he assaulted me and broke my finger as he yanked the handcuffs out of my hand.”
In fact, Randolph’s injuries were more extensive than just a broken finger.
Her skin was actually ripped from her finger, exposing muscles and the bone.
At that point, Nolen ran into a wooded area along the highway.
“We called to have additional units come. We actually had a couple of helicopters, some dogs, TACT team, a lot of people out there that night. And 12 hours later, after our manhunt, we were able to catch him and take him back into custody,” she said.
Randolph says she was caught off guard by how quickly he became enraged.
“One minute we’re talking, the next he’s assaulting me,” she remembered. “I had one handcuff on his right wrist and he hit me in the chest, pushed me back and yanked the handcuff out of my hand. But one minute we’re talking and the next he’s assaulting me. It happened very quickly.”
Randolph says she wishes she would have taken extra precautions when dealing with him because he was a felon.
“He tried to bargain with me not to go to jail. He had a girlfriend and a baby with him, so I wasn’t as alert, as on guard, as I should have been. And I was a lot more nice than I probably should have been with him,” she said.
“I knew when I had my interaction with him in 2010 that he was a menace to society,” said Randolph. “He was allowed to get out early on my case and that’s a travesty of justice.”
Randolph says she had no idea the man who had assaulted her was the one involved in this beheading until NewsChannel 4 contacted her Friday morning.
“When Chuck called me this morning and told me that, I got goosebumps over all of my body,” Randolph said. “And I’ll admit, I’ve cried a few tears today too.”
“I praise God for taking care of me that night and watching over me. I just wish that we would have been able to prevent this from happening for this lady and her family and this other lady and her family in Moore,” she added.

Oklahoma Muslims receive special praise from White House officials

Oklahoma Muslims receive special praise from White House officials


OKLAHOMA CITY –  Oklahoma Muslims marked the end of the yearly pilgrimage to mecca with communal prayer and celebration called Eid Ul-Adha on Saturday.
Leaders of the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City say it’s been a tough month for Muslims here in Oklahoma after being associated with the beheading at Vaughan foods in Moore.
Leaders of the faith here in the state say vicious messages are being left for Oklahoma Muslims, telling them to get out of Oklahoma and threatening to behead them all because the man behind the beheading claimed to be Muslim.
Click here to read more about the threats. 
But the Muslim community received the highest form of praise from the White House for their hard work in helping rebuild the Moore community after a destructive tornado tore through the city in 2013.
Today, an official from Washington D.C. flew in to Oklahoma to present a special thank you to the Muslim congregation.
He read a message from President Barrack Obama, extending warm greetings from the American people during the Muslim holiday.
“Your service is a powerful example of the powerful roots of the Abrahamic faiths and how our communities can come together with shared peace with dignity and a sense of justice,” President Barack Obama said.
The Imam, the leader of the prayer service, stated during his sermon that the Muslim faith has been called a “cancer that needs to be cut off from the American society.”
Now, with the recent praise, Oklahoma Muslims have been reassured that they are a part of the American society.

UNREAL: Obama Sends “Thank You” Note to Oklahoma Terrorist’s Mosque [FULL TEXT]

UNREAL: Obama Sends “Thank You” Note to Oklahoma Terrorist’s Mosque [FULL TEXT]


In the wake of a horrific example of Islamic terrorism in the United States, Barack Obama expressed no sympathy towards the victim of this horrific crime or her family… but instead chose to thank the mosque that helped create the terrorist himself. You can’t make this stuff up.
David Myers, the Director of the Department of Homeland Security’s Center for Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships, spoke at the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City for their festival celebrating the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha. He delivered a message from Obama thanking the mosque for their service in the wake of a tornado that hit the area last year.

The full message read: “Your service is a powerful example of the powerful roots of the Abrahamic faiths and how our communities can come together with shared peace with dignity and a sense of justice.”
Apparently, all the negative attention the mosque has received since the attack warranted a personal visit from an Obama administration official to make sure that Muslims preaching an ideology of violence feel welcome in America.
Lest we forget what we’ve found out about the activities of this mosque in the aftermath of the Oklahoma beheading, here’s a quick reminder:
Get our daily email alert by entering your Email:
The mosque was the same one attended by the “20th hijacker” on 9/11.
The mosque has ties to the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a known Hamas front group.
A man who attended the mosque confirmed that its teachings were consistent with radical Islam, including waging jihad against non-believers.
The mosque had been under the direction of Imam Suhaib Webb, who has ties to former Al Qaeda leader al-Awlaki and now leads the mosque that had been attended by the Boston bombers.
Listen to a former member of the mosque describe his chilling experiences in the video below:
Here’s what we know:
1. The Obama administration has yet to acknowledge the attack as an act of Islamic terrorism.
2. Obama has not expressed his sympathies to the family of the victim.
3. Obama has sent his own personal messenger to this radical mosque after the attack to thank them for a completely unrelated occurrence that happened last year.
It’s obvious this was a PR move on the part of Obama to give positive press to this mosque after they were outed by conservative media as serving as a breeding ground for jihadists. The timing was not coincidental. The activities that Obama was “thanking” the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City for occurred after a tornado that occurred in 2013. He had no reason to send this message now… other than wanting to make sure Oklahoma Muslims’ feelings weren’t hurt because they got exposed for helping breed the perpetrator of a terrorist attack.
Add this to the fact that Obama recently used his UN speech to praise a radical Muslim cleric who called for the killing of US soldiers.
Why is our president going out of his way to ignore the victim of a vicious terrorist attack while thanking those who helped produce the terrorist? The answer might make you a little uncomfortable.
Please share this article on Facebook and Twitter if you agree that Obama is openly siding with radical Muslims against the victim of a terrorist attack.

Michael Savage: 1 month left to save America New 'prophetic' book warns nation ahead of mid-terms

  • Text smaller
  • Text bigger
obama-feature
When Barack Obama introduced himself at the 2004 Democratic National Convention declaring there was only one America – “not a liberal America and a conservative America” and “not a black America and white America” – many instantly envisioned him as a future presidential candidate with a unique heritage and extraordinary rhetorical skills that would enable him to unite a nation divided over political ideology and race.
Not long into his presidency, however, it became apparent to many, including some liberals, that Obama’s leadership and policies had only exacerbated the divisions.
Most attributed his failures to simple incompetence, but Michael Savage saw something much more sinister happening, and in his new book – “Stop the Coming Civil War” – he charges Obama is deliberately dividing the country.
At the time Savage finished the manuscript, several months ago, many continued to mock the provocative notion that any president would purposefully damage the nation.

But recent events, including the flood of Central American illegal aliens and the entry of the Ebola virus to the U.S., have made “Stop the Coming Civil War,” Savage’s 30th book, seem prophetic.
Meanwhile, an increasing number of bewildered Democrats are distancing themselves from Obama.
In his concluding chapter, Savage bluntly states his book, published by Center Street Books, is about “the conflict the current administration is pushing in the name of a broader worldwide liberal revolution.”
“As I see it, the forces of the left are attempting nothing less than a socialist takeover of the world economy and global politics,” he writes.
In an interview with WND, Savage said his publisher recently expressed to him amazement that “everything you said was going to happen or would happen is happening this minute.”
Savage sees it as deductive logic.
“Obama’s been engaged in a civil war from the day he seized the presidency,” Savage told WND. “He said he’s going to transform America. What was that? What was that declaration? It’s a declaration of war against the country’s traditional values and freedoms.”
“It was clear what he was going to do, but everyone was dancing around the golden calf,” he said.
As WND reported, Savage told his listeners last week that Ebola has now come to the U.S. because of Obama’s open-borders policy, which also has allowed once-eradicated diseases to enter through Central American illegal-alien minors who are being placed in public schools nationwide.
Michael Savage
Savage said the “worst part of the story” is that if Obama is allowed to continue, “this country doesn’t survive.”
He noted Vice President Joseph Biden’s statement at the John F. Kennedy Forum at Harvard last Thursday that the post-World War II order is “literally fraying at the seams.”
“What was he trying to say?” Savage asked. “Was he playing like he’s suddenly discovered what he’s done to the country? And now he’s triangulating his opposition to make believe he’s the savior?
“It’s not just a joke,” he told WND. “We’re at the end of the road here. I don’t want to live in a Venezuela under a dictatorship and look back 40 years and say, ‘Why didn’t someone stop him?’”
In January, Savage told his listeners of his work on the book, calling the things he was discovering “frightening” and concluding, “The more I get into it, the worse it looks for us.”
Last chance
Savage, the author of six New York Times bestsellers, said he had no financial or personal need to write another book. His aim, he said, is to warn the nation that the mid-term election one month from now is the only realistic opportunity to stop Obama.
“After 29 books, I don’t need another bestseller,” he told WND. “What I need is the last chance to change the course of human events. I am praying that the people awaken before the election in November.”
stop-coming-civil-warThough he described the Republican Party as “tepid,” Savage said “they’re the only chance we have.”
“If every Democrat Socialist Islamist is fired, and the Republicans take the Senate, we can lobby the Republican Party through town hall meetings,” he said. “We can shake them up and make them do what needs to be done.”
The Democrats, on the other hand, Savage said, “are absolutely immune to any lobbying whatsoever,” pointing to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi as a chief example.
“Are you telling me she is going to listen to the average American about saving the country?” he asked. “Of course not.”
See the entire Savage collection in the WND Superstore.
Savage sees the 300-plus referenced pages of his book as a “blueprint for impeachment.”
“I did what the whole Republican Party should have been doing for the last year,” he said.
“You take this book and slap it down in Congress. ‘Here’s the grounds for impeachment. In this blueprint.’ That’s why I want everyone to read the thing,” he said.
Spiritual disease
Savage told WND he was invited to give a few words before the beginning of a Yom Kippur service at a synagogue.
He said he told the large Jewish audience the world “is coming apart at the seams” and people offer many explanations for what is happening.
Savage asked: “When America was ruled by practicing Christian presidents, wasn’t the world a safer place?”
He said silence came over the audience.
“They heard me,” he said. “I didn’t have to say that we have an atheist, communist, socialist, anarchist in the White House. All I said is that when we had a practicing Christian in the White House, the world was a safer place.
“I said there’s a spiritual disease that we’re suffering from, and America put this man in there, and the world is falling apart as a result.”

URGENT: 130 Iraqi officers under investigation or forced retirement for surrendering Mosul to ISIS

URGENT: 130 Iraqi officers under investigation or forced retirement for surrendering Mosul to ISIS

C938F2BE 1971 4E9E 9776 C6C721363F49 cx0 cy2 cw0 mw1024 s n r1 650x365 URGENT: 130 Iraqi officers under investigation or forced retirement for surrendering Mosul to ISIS
Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi.
Baghdad (IraqiNews.com) Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi submitted the names of 130 Iraqi military officers for investigation in connection with the surrender of the city of Mosul to the so called organization of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria without a fight last June.
On Monday a source close to al-Abadi said “The decisions will be issued after the Eid al-Adha. Three senior officers of the ranks of generals will be forwarded to retirement on the background of the military events that accompanied the seizure of the cities of Mosul, Tikrit, and parts of the western regions by the organization ISIS.”
The source added that “among the decisions to be taken by Abadi is the referral of 130 officers to retirement and investigation.”

Judge declines to hold Holder in contempt

Judge declines to hold Holder in contempt

A federal judge has declined a House committee's bid to have Attorney General Eric Holder held in contempt of court — and perhaps even jailed — for failing to turn over documents related to the Justice Department' s response to Operation Fast and Furious.
However, in a ruling Monday, U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson also denied Holder's request for an indefinite stay of her prior order that the attorney general must turn over any "non-privileged" documents the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee subpoenaed as part of an investigation into the botched gunrunning investigation. The judge previously ruled that Holder must give the panel any documents that are not both predecisional and deliberative in nature.
Jackson called the House contempt motion "entirely unnecessary" and said it was evident that she was considering the government's motion to lift her prior order. "Under those circumstances, the Court finds no basis to hold defendant in contempt," she wrote.
But the judge also said she saw no reason to allow the Justice Department to withhold unprivileged documents until the case was complete. She ordered those records turned over to the committee by Nov. 3, along with a log of the records claimed to be privileged.
"Though the Court has the discretion to grant a stay in the interests of judicial economy and efficiency, pending appeal or otherwise, there is no pending appeal here and the Court has already ruled that defendant has no legal basis to withhold non-deliberative documents. The 'possibility' of an appeal and piecemeal litigation does not satisfy defendant’s burden to demonstrative a 'clear case of hardship or inequity' without a stay," she wrote in her decision (posted here).
A Justice Department spokesman welcomed the decision, at least the part rebuffing the motion to hold Holder in contempt. "We are pleased that the court rejected the committee's latest stunt," spokesman Brian Fallon said.
A spokesperson for the House committee said the judge's ruling is a step towards the panel receiving documents it should have been given years ago. "The Oversight Committee is pleased that the Judge in the case has rejected the Department's request to continue illegally withholding documents and its attempt to unnecessarily prolong the proceeding.  This court ruling affirms that Attorney General Holder broke the law in withholding subpoenaed documents, which led the House of Representatives to vote him in criminal contempt," said the spokesperson.
UPDATE (Monday, 4:35 P.M.): This post has been updated with reaction from the Justice Department and the House Oversight Committee.

OUTRAGEOUS: Obama Sends THANK-YOU Letter to Oklahoma Beheader’s Mosque

OUTRAGEOUS: Obama Sends THANK-YOU Letter to Oklahoma Beheader’s Mosque

So let me get this straight: After a Muslim beheads a woman on American soil in the name of Islam, the Obama Administration not only remains silent on the entire deal, but instead decides to reach out to the Oklahoma Mosque that the killer attended to present them with a THANK YOU letter.
There was no kind words that were offered to the family of the victim, no investigation into the mosque to investigate possible ties to the leadership, no statement condemning the act of terror; Obama just wanted to make sure that during this time that the Muslims were reassured that they are still a part of American society.
OUTRAGEOUS: Obama Sends THANK-YOU Letter to Oklahoma Beheader’s Mosque
On Saturday, an official from the Obama administration flew to Oklahoma in order to present a special thank you to the Muslim community. The official read a special message straight from Obama, which extended “warm greetings” from the American people:
“Your service is a powerful example of the powerful roots of the Abrahamic faiths and how our communities can come together with shared peace with dignity and a sense of justice,” President Barack Obama said.
Follow Us On Facebook
Apparently, after the beheading in Oklahoma, the Muslims in that area are feeling sorry for themselves after receiving a lot of flack. Well… yeah… that’s to be expected when a person who attends your mosque under YOUR teachings beheads someone in the name of your psychotic religion.
This recent praise from Obama gives Oklahoma Muslims reassurance that he feels they are an important part of American society. This should come as no surprise considering some of Obama’s statements on Islam:
“The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”
“We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over the centuries to shape the world — including in my own country.”
“Islam has always been part of America.”
“I made it clear that America is not – and will never be – at war with Islam.”
The Imam — who is the ring-leader of the beheader’s cult — stated during his sermon that the Muslim faith has been called a “cancer that needs to be cut off from the American society.”
I couldn’t agree more. Islam IS a cancer… and it should be eradicated from the planet. And for our president to continually pander to this sick psychotic religion truly makes my stomach turn.

Polio-like illness claims fifth life in U.S.

Polio-like illness claims fifth life in U.S.

A non-polio enterovirus as seen under a microscope
At least five children infected with the respiratory illness known enterovirus D68 (EV-D68) have died in the U.S. in the past month.
(Above image: a non-polio enterovirus as seen using an immunoelectron microscopic technique. Courtesy: CDC)
cdc_logoThe lastest confirmed victim was a four-year-old New Jersey boy, Eli Waller. He died at home on September 25. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) confirmed the cause of death Friday night. But health officials say they have no idea how he contracted the virus. A health official says Eli was “asymptomatic and fine” when he went to bed but died overnight. He had no known preexisting immune weakness.
CDC Overview of EV-D68
A 10-year girl Rhode Island girl infected with EV-D68, Emily Otrando, died less than 24 hours after being rushed to the hospital with breathing problems. Three other patients with EV-D68 also died in September.
The CDC reports that in the past month and a half, at least 538 people in 43 states and the District of Columbia have become ill with EV-D68. Most of them are children and some developed limb paralysis. Polio, which can cause paralysis and death, is a type of enterovirus. EV-D68 is one of more than a hundred “non-polio” enteroviruses.
The actual number of EV-D68 infections is likely significantly higher than reported since some state health officials are not testing every suspected case.
18056_lores
Link to Illegal Immigrant Children?
Enteroviruses commonly circulate in the U.S. during summer and fall. EV-D68 was first identified in California in 1962. Over the past thirty years, only small numbers were reported in the U.S.
The CDC hasn’t suggested reasons for the current uptick or its origin. Without that answer, some question whether the disease is being spread by the presence of tens of thousands of illegal immigrant children from Central America admitted to the U.S. in the past year.
The origin could be entirely unrelated.
However, a study published in Virology Journal, found EV-D68 among some of the 3,375 young, ill people tested in eight Latin American countries, including the Central American nations of El Salvador and Nicaragua, in 2013.  (See Fig. 3)
Though the U.S. government is keeping secret the locations of the illegal immigrant children, there are significant numbers of them in both cities in which the current outbreak was first identified, Kansas City, Missouri and Chicago, Illinois, according to local advocates and press reports.
CDC list of states with confirmed EV-D68 cases
The EV-D68 outbreak was first recognized after Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Missouri notified CDC on August 19 of an increase in severe respiratory illnesses. Four days later, on August 23, the University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children’s Hospital notified CDC of a similar increase.
What is an enterovirus?
An enterovirus is a positive-sense (“plus-strand”) RNA (ribonucleic acid) virus. Other diseases caused by RNA viruses include Ebola, SARS, polio and measles.
According to CDC, there are no available vaccines, antiviral medications or specific treatments for EV-D68. Most cases are mild.
Hand, foot and mouth disease: another enterovirus
In March of 2012, CDC reported emergence of a new strain of another non-polio enterovirus in the U.S. responsible for what’s known as hand, foot and mouth disease. The patients’ age range and the severity of the illness were considered unusual in the U.S. and resulted in a more severe and extensive rash. It had been previously seen in Taiwan, Japan, Singapore and Finland. Hand, foot and mouth disease is typically not considered a serious illness and usually resolves itself.
Recently, schools reported an uptick in the enterovirus hand, foot and mouth disease in Illinois, Indiana, Florida, Virginia, Wisconsin with cases also reported in Oregon.
Additional reports in southwest Virginia
Accidental Release of Live Polio Virus into Water in Belgium

A lab technician studies an enterovirus.
In other enterovirus news: The European Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (ECDC) recently reported the “accidental release” by pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline of more than 11 gallons of concentrated live polio virus solution into the environment in Belgium.
Authorities say the release, due to “human error,” happened in Rixensart city and the liquid “was conducted directly to a water-treatment plant (Rosieres) and released after treatment in river Lasne affluent of river Dyle which is affluent of the Escaut/Scheldt river.”
Belgium’s High Council of Public Health stated the risk of infection for those exposed to the contaminated water is “extremely low due to the high level of dilution and the high vaccination coverage (95%) in Belgium.”
A statement from ECDC said, “ECDC’s assessment is that the accidental release in the environment of large amounts of live polio virus represents a risk to public health if susceptible populations, such as areas with low polio vaccine coverage, are exposed to contaminated waters or mud. Particularly since the Lasne and Dyle rivers are joining the Escaut/Scheldt river which flows in the southwestern part of the Netherlands where various orthodox protestant communities present a lower polio vaccination coverage, before reaching the North Sea.”

BREAKING: Source Claims Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi to Be Released


BREAKING: Source Claims Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi to Be Released

ZTahmooressi3In March of this year, Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi missed his exit near San Diego. The Marine appeared to think little of his mistake, even informing the checkpoint that he intended to merely turn around and that he had firearms in his car.
 
Having crossed just feet into Mexico with these firearms has cost the veteran nearly eight months of his life as he has lingered in a Mexican jail cell as his combat-induced PTSD has worsened while President Obama has done nothing to secure the release of the Marine.
 
Now, it seems that finally, America might be receiving their hero soon.
 
According to a source within the House Foreign Affairs Committee staff, Sgt. Tahmooressi is expected to be released sometime this week.
 
The information reportedly comes directly from the office of Mexico’s Attorney General.
 
The Tahmooressi family has been incredibly outspoken about raising awareness for the Marine Corps veteran who served his country honorably in Afghanistan but that has been left to the mercy of the Mexican legal system.
 
Arizona Republican Matt Salmon, who has worked to secure the release of Sgt. Tahmooressi, told TPNN last month, 
“It baffles me that [Obama] would trade five terrorists for a soldier of questionable reputation and do nothing to help an American hero,” Salmon stated, alluding to Obama’s illegal trade of five terrorists from Guantanamo Bay for Army deserter Bowe Bergdahl.
 
“Obama said time and time again that as president, when he got Bergdahl out, ‘I’m the president and I will leave no man on the field.’ Well, that’s right up there with, ‘If you like your health insurance, you can keep it,’ and ‘There will be no ground troops in Syria.’ As we all know, they’re all lies.” 
Hopefully, Sgt. Tahmooressi will soon be back on American soil and his ordeal will be behind once and for all.

The Doctor Who Discovered Ebola Just Had Some Scary Things To Say About The Latest Outbreak

The Doctor Who Discovered Ebola Just Had Some Scary Things To Say About The Latest Outbreak

By James Beattie
Peter Piot
One of the co-discoverers of the Ebola virus has called the current situation a “humanitarian catastrophe.”
Dr. Peter Piot, who discovered Ebola in 1976 when a pilot gave him a blood sample from a sick Belgian nun in Zaire, also told Der Spiegel how the name ‘Ebola’ came to be. The interview was later translated and republished in The Guardian.
Piot, who is the Executive Director of UNAIDS and an Undersecretary-General of the United Nations, said the reason the World Health Organization (WHO) reacted so late is the African regional office doesn’t have very capable people and is filled with political appointees. He believes that although it is good that the United States and other countries are getting involved, others must do more.
“I have always been an optimist and I think that we now have no other choice than to try everything, really everything. It’s good that the United States and some other countries are finally beginning to help. But Germany or even Belgium, for example, must do a lot more.
“And it should be clear to all of us: This isn’t an epidemic anymore. This is a humanitarian catastrophe. We don’t just need care personnel, but also logistics experts, trucks, keeps and foodstuffs. Such an epidemic can destabilize entire regions. I can only hope that we will be able to get it under control. I really never thought that it could get this bad.”
The co-discoverer of the Ebola virus acknowledged an outbreak in North America or Europe could be controlled quickly, but is more worried about many from India who travel to west Africa for work.
“It would only take one of them to become infected, travel to India to visit relatives during the virus’s incubation period, and then, once he becomes sick, go to a public hospital there. Doctors and nurses in India, too, often don’t wear protective gloves. They would immediately become infected and spread the virus.”
He also tells the German outlet how he remembers ‘exactly’ the details of how he and the research team he was with came to discovering Ebola when a pilot brought a blood sample of a sick Belgian nun and requested that it be tested for yellow fever.
“One day in September [1976], a pilot from Sabena Airlines brought us a shiny blue Thermos and a letter from a doctor in Kinshasa in what was then Zaire. In the Thermos, he wrote, there was a blood sample from a Belgian nun who had recently fallen ill from a mysterious sickness in Yambuku, a remote village in the northern part of the country. He asked us to test the sample for yellow fever.
“We had no idea how dangerous the virus was. And there were no high-security labs in Belgium. We just wore our white lab coats and protective gloves. When we opened the Thermos, the ice inside had largely melted and one of the vials had broken. Blood and glass shards were floating in the ice water. We fished the other, intact, test tube out of the slop and began examining the blood for pathogens, using the methods that were standard at the time.
Piot explains when the team was able to create an image of the Ebola virus with an electron microscope, their first thought was, “What the hell is that?”, and that it was nothing like yellow fever.
“The virus that we had spent so much time searching for was very big, very long, and worm-like. It had no similarities with yellow fever. Rather, it looked like the extremely dangerous Marburg virus which, like Ebola, causes a hemorrhagic fever. In the 1960s, the virus killed several laboratory workers in Marburg, Germany.”
The world renown doctor tells Der Spiegel when he and his colleagues treated Ebola patients early on, they wore protective suits and latex gloves to shield themselves from those infected. He adds that he borrowed a pair of motorcycle goggles for eye protection, and managed to avoid infection, though did become sick.
“At some point I did actually develop a high fever, a headache, and diarrhea… I immediately thought ‘Damn, this is it!’ But then I tried to keep my cool. I knew the symptoms I had could be from something completely different and harmless. And it really would have been stupid to spend two weeks in the horrible isolation tent that had been set up for us scientists for the worst case. So I just stayed alone in my room and waited.

Dangerous Times: Obama the Betrayer

Dangerous Times: Obama the Betrayer

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
Which of those solemn promises has Barack H. Obama not betrayed?
I can’t think of a single one.
If Obama is different from other presidents, it’s not for the color of his skin, which is just a PR hustle to blackmail suckers into proving they aren’t racists.  No: Obama will be historic for his fanatical leftism, which has no precedent in American history.  The biggest headline is Obama’s ideology, not his race.
The left is a revolutionary cult, one that has no compunctions about violations of laws or human rights – for what they imagine to be a utopian cause, of course.  But every single power cult in history is all for love and peace – once it takes over.  Head-chopping Muslims sing the song of love and peace just as well as the left.
Just consider two quotes.
Karl Marx, 1848: “… there is only one means to shorten, simplify and concentrate the murderous death throes of the old society and the bloody birth pangs of the new, only one meansrevolutionary terrorism."
Vladimir Lenin, 1918: “the fundamental feature of the concept of dictatorship of the proletariat is revolutionary violence.
Terrorist killings of innocent civilians are exactly the same as deliberate murder under domestic criminal law.  But the left has legitimized terrorism when it is directed against bourgeois society.  That is the key to their moral perversion.  That is also why Obama does not object to terrorism “as such.”  If he cared about Islamist terrorism in Syria, Iran, Saudi Arabia, and all the rest, he would also have to reject the Mau Mau terrorism that brought his dreamed-of father to power in Kenya.  (Jomo Kenyatta quickly kicked him out of the post-colonial government.)  In any case, Obama and the indoctrinated network that now controls the United States government consider terrorism “in a good cause” justifiable – which is why they do not mind  9/11/01 and the whole rise of jihad terrorism in the last forty years.  If anything, the hard left wing of our foreign policy establishment is full of excuses for clear crimes against humanity.
So far, Obama has shown utter contempt for the U.S. Constitution, for our military, and for the crucial duties of the Department of Justice, the Border Patrol, and the IRS.  The hard left at the core of the Democratic Party is essentially Obamanist, as expressed by Rep. Joe Garcia.
The real problem is therefore not a single human being called Obama, but an entire political apparatus that turns out Obamas like robots.  Hillary is an Alinsky acolyte, and Alinsky was simply another revolutionary agitator – now called “community organizer” by our party-line press.  Alinsky’s biggest innovation was to make common cause with organized crime in Chicago.
Starting with the Arab oil embargo of the 1970s, radical Muslims joined the Alinsky axis to make the toxic triangle of revolution, criminal mafias, and reactionary Islamism.
The historian Bat Ye’or wrote in her book, Eurabia:
[Beginning in 1973,] the combination of a powerful Eurabian lobby with ... European political, media, and educational systems produced throughout the EU that uniform political thinking known as “political correctness”...  Dissenters were harshly censured in universities, books, and the media.
Exactly the same media-political fear regime was implemented in the United States.  These events were not coincidental.  In many cases, we know exactly which politicians and media empires were bought by Gulf oil dollars.  Starting with the Clintons, we have seen state mafias gain national power – first the Dixie Mafia, and now the Chicago Machine.  Obama is simply the logical outcome of forty years of indoctrination in our politics, education, and media.
We can now see these toxic forces converging in the purposeful sabotage of our southern border.  The Sinaloa cartel is the biggest drug cartel in Chicago, and it received weapons from our DOJ during the “Fast and Furious” smuggling program.  Valerie Jarrett met with “immigration activists” (like La Raza) in the weeks before the assault on our border.  Iran’s terrorist arm Hezb'allah has agents colluding with drug mafias and people smuggling all over South America.  Breaking down our southern borders serves all three.
It’s impossible to know where Obama has done the most damage – at home or abroad.  The Middle East is now breaking down into that much-feared regional war, with Russia, Syria, Iran, Turkey, and Iraq converging on the Saudi- and Qatar-supported murder gangs of ISIS and ISIL, which now number in the tens of thousands.  To add to the turmoil, the United States has helped to supply and train AQ barbarians in Jordan and Turkey, to join their bloodstained brothers wherever they decide to strike next.
All these bloody disasters can be attributed to U.S. and European policies in support of Islamofascist radicals.  Jimmy Carter allowed Ayatollah Khomeini to take power in Iran, which is now within weeks of possessing a nuclear bomb.  Western politicians like Jacques Chirac enabled Saddam Hussein in Europe and the U.N., leading directly to suicidal immigration flows of millions of Muslims from the badlands of Pakistan to all the capitals of Europe.  The EU supported the Turkish Islamofascist party of Recip Erdoğan, now fighting the Turkish Salafist party.  The Clintons failed to pursue Osama bin Laden after the first World Trade Center bombing in New York in 1993.  Major money flows have been going from the ultra-radical Muslim Brotherhood to the Carter and Clinton centers.
But it took Obama to betray Egypt’s Mubarak, the single greatest pillar of peace in the Middle East for four decades.  It was Obama who overthrew Gaddafi, and dissolved Libya into a bloody civil war that still continues.  It was Obama who directed Ambassador Stevens to smuggle vast quantities of Libyan arms to the Syrian rebels, including the worst of the worst, the Al Nusrah gang, which killed children in the Christian village of Ma’aloula.  It was Obama who supported the rise of the MBs in Egypt – the very people who assassinated Anwar Sadat forty years ago for making peace with Israel.  Today, it is Obama who is preparing to surrender Afghanistan to the woman-hating Taliban, and who is refusing to help our U.S.-promoted Baghdad government to ward off the latest assault by primitive savages.
(Baghdad is now getting jet planes from Russia and an invading army from Iran and Syria, whose loyalties nobody knows.  But they sure don’t like us.)
In sum, Obama has presided over the most malignant foreign policy in U.S. history.
This is not an accident. This policy was planned and executed by radical leftists like Susan Rice and Valerie Jarrett, corrupt media barons like the New York Times, and Islamofascists like John Brennan.  They include the same Big Media corporations that control our “mainstream” media.  They also include famous Silicon Valley high-tech companies like Apple and Google, who support Obama’s Progressive Policy Institute, and George Soros, who supports the anti-Israel front group J Street.  Google’s vice president for North African sales was indeed directly involved in agitating for the Arab Spring, which our media simultaneously discovered and headlined, only to lead to Muslim Brotherhood despotism in Egypt.
It is very hard to know if we  will come out of this mad state of affairs intact.  America has teetered on the edge of Marxist disaster once before in its history, during the FDR and Truman years, when the fruits of the Manhattan Project were instantly transmitted to Stalin in Moscow, who was able to explode his own copycat bomb as early as 1949.  Leftist betrayal is not new, nor is it unusual.
If you believe delusionally that the “bourgeois” nation-state is the enemy of all that is good and decent, and that destroying it will bring about utopia, smuggling nuclear secrets to Jozef Stalin becomes a great gift to humanity.  Once you accept delusional cult beliefs, the end simply justifies the means.  And delusional cults are a dime a dozen in human history.
As the Wall Street Journal wrote this week:
The American image has been tarnished by the progressives who took control of the U.S. government in 2009. They set about to expand the state's power, which was exactly what had destroyed the productive drive and creative skills of the post-World War II Russians and Chinese. They made a hash of health insurance, grossly distorted finance and destroyed personal savings by manipulation of the credit markets. They conducted a war on fossil fuels, handing a victory to Russia, which uses its hydrocarbon exports to exercise political influence in Europe. They weakened the dollar by running up huge national debts and wasted the nation's substance on silly projects like "fighting global warming."
Obama’s mentors shared a bitter hatred for middle-class values, starting with his mother and father, followed by his Muslim madrassa teachers in Jakarta, then Frank Marshall Davis in Hawaii, on and on, culminating in Jerry Wright, who calls our culture of freedom and productive work “middleclassness” – a direct translation of Marx’s “bourgeoisie,” the enemy that must be destroyed.
What is different about the Obama left is not the basic doctrine of revolutionary destruction.  What’s different is the new alliance between the radical left and jihadist Islam.  According to Bat Ye’or, that alliance goes back to the 1970s, after the Arab oil embargo, when Wahhabi and Khomeinist Muslims started to buy politicians by the barrel in Europe and America.  Obama is the culmination of decades of Muslim influence-buying, which now controls much of our media, politics, and educational system.
Today, we are seeing that alliance emerge in the Muslim world, where the Western left has consistently supported murderous jihadist movements and regimes.
Obama has supported mass-killing regimes in the Middle East against more moderate, stabilizing rulers: Mubarak, Gaddafi (much better than today’s civil war in Libya), Maliki (ditto for Iraq), Karzai (ditto for Afghanistan).  Instead, Obama consistently favors al-Qaeda-linked killer gangs in Syria and the biggest sponsor of terrorism, Iran.  His treatment of our longtime allies has been atrocious.  Betrayal is his middle name.
The hokey “spontaneous” immigrant wave of children and criminals is just another example of hard-left agitprop – in this case culminating in massive, deliberate child endangerment and probable abuse.
Obama’s self-appointed mission in life is to destroy the most productive and beneficial culture in history.  Obama personally taught Alinsky’s Rules to his ACORN followers, and Alinsky called us “the enemy.”  That word is used in war, and radicals like Obama and Malcolm X are bitter warlike agitators.  (The old word for “community organizer” was “communist agitator”).  Radicals like Obama read their revolutionary heroes literally, just like any Bible-quoting fundamentalist preacher.
The civilized world has a great ability to recover from disaster, as it showed three times in the last century.  But each time the resistance has had to be led by those who tell the truth.  Sane and sensible people today cannot rely on our twisted media, and we cannot believe our broken politicians.  We have new web technologies at our fingertips that allow us to throw out the bums – be they RINOs, leftist radicals, or Islamofascists.  Eventually our confused voters will figure it out – but don’t expect other people to make it happen.
Everything depends on telling the truth, and you and I must take full responsibility for doing so. Nobody else will do it for us.

Deadly fire' at Iran military explosives facility

Deadly fire' at Iran military explosives facility

Satellite image of Parchin military complex near Tehran from 2004 One report says an explosion near the Parchin complex south of Tehran could be heard for miles
A fire and explosion at a military explosives facility near the Iranian capital Tehran has left at least two people dead, reports say.
The semi-official Iranian Students News Agency (Isna) said the fire was in an "explosive materials production unit".
A pro-opposition website reported a huge blast near the Parchin military site, south-east of the capital, but this was not confirmed.
Parchin has been linked to Iran's controversial nuclear programme.
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has not been given access to the complex since 2005.
Analysts say the IAEA suspects Iran of experimenting with explosives capable of triggering a nuclear weapon at Parchin.
Windows shattered The pro-reform website Sahamnews said the explosion on Sunday evening was so intense that windows of buildings 15km (nine miles) away were shattered.
The glare from the blast could also be seen from a great distance, the report added.
Isna, quoting Iran's defence industries organisation, said: "Unfortunately, due to the incident, two workers of this production unit lost their lives."
It gave no further details.
Last month, the IAEA said more activity had been conducted at the Parchin military base.
It said Iran had also missed a deadline to answer further questions about its nuclear programme.
Iran is in negotiations with six world powers on a permanent agreement over its nuclear industry.
The West suspects Iran of trying to develop a nuclear weapon but Iranian leaders insist they only want atomic energy.
Talks are focused on lifting Western sanctions in exchange for a scaling-back of Iran's uranium enrichment programme, and a deadline for the agreement has been set for 24 November.

Many doubts about where you were born, my Obama
The American president has faced doubts in his birth in Hawaii since the beginning of the election campaign in 2008, and the order by presenting a document proving his birth city of Honolulu, the state of Hawaii, has been confirmed by the local government health, also presented copies of newspapers, old back to 1961, where a congratulatory his birth. Also made the local governor of Hawaii testimony in which he said that he knew Obama's family and the little day of his birth.
However, this file remained open after that, and the incident was months in the summer of 2010, when he announced to the officer Terence I, rebellion against his decisions to go to Afghanistan because of skepticism in Obama's entitlement to his position and his birth in America.

I have embarked on a campaign to discredit Obama's birth in the United States since October / October, 2008.
