For a long time the FEOCE was pretty much just going staying steady state, things weren’t changing. 2 months ago I could have taken a post from last year and posted it word for word and link for link and nobody would have noticed, even if this was the kind of blog where people clicked the links and read the posts.
But now? Things are changing and it’s not getting prettier.
Ebola in Sierra Leone is being mostly ignored and it shouldn’t be.
A doctor in charge of an Ebola treatment center in Sierra Leone has been admitted to hospital after contracting the deadly virus himself, the health ministry said Wednesday.
The news comes just days after three nurses from the same facility died of the disease, which has killed hundreds of people throughout west Africa and continues to spread.
That can’t be good.
All manner of diseases are spreading in new and horrible ways, like MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome) may be airborne. That means you don’t need actual contact to get it. That’s how plagues get really bad.
Of course, the way things are going that’ll just make the rubble bounce.
America has lost all respect in the world.
An unusual screening process occurred involving Kerry and his State Department team as they were subjected to a metal detector before meeting with President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi at the Egyptian presidential palace.
That’s not about security, it’s about a calculated insult to the representative of America. A competent Sec State would have said, “Fuck you.” and walked away, but Kerry is anything but intelligent or competent. Think, Joe Biden with better hair and a richer wife.
Russia is showing that, what with Obama calling for people to RESPECT HIS AUTHORITAH!!! and Putin laughing at him.
China is noticing the New World Order and getting more and more assertive in the South China Sea.
China’s unyielding commitment to gaining control over contested territory and its disdain for subjecting itself to rules that put it on an equal footing with much smaller states mean that hopes of successfully negotiating a binding CoC (Code of Conduct…to ‘promote peace and stability in the region.’ V) are illusionary.
Expansionistic, murderous commie dictators tend to act murderous and expansionistic. I was reading a book, I forget which one, and they noted that China is not really commie, they’re and industrial fuedalistic society, which misses the point that that’s what commie dictatorships always become no matter how much they mouth commie pieties.
There is one ray of interesting out there. I use Lebanon Now! because they’re generally much more trustworthy than the any American outlet, so that makes this even more interesting.
Fast-forward to ISIS and the unfolding tragedy of Iraqi Christians. The uprooting and destruction of Christian communities in Iraq has sent shockwaves through social media and throughout the world. What is particularly infuriating about the tragic fate of Iraqi Christians is that they had remained neutral in the ongoing conflict.
They list stuff from the Bible that Christians generally don’t take literally anymore and then list stuff from the Koran that Islamic terrorists quote to justify their actions.
I’ve been called all manner of things for noticing that, it’s interesting that a Muslim outlet is noticing it. I think it’s too late to do any good, but it might mean there’s hope for Lebanon. I try to like Lebanon but they let their Jew-Hatred get away, if they would stop that there might be hope for them.
America, of course, is going the other way. Some border patrol types get all Stasi on some Boy Scouts for having the temerity to think they live in a free country.
A Boy Scout took a picture of some border patrol assholes. The border patrol types said it was illegal (It isn’t) and drew a gun on a Boys Scout. They’re denying one of their OberFuhrers did that, but I know who I believe. Especially considering what we’ve seen these days.
An interesting article highlighting that.
US Government Turns Fully Against Americans and Few Seem to Care
Yeah, we’ve been noticing that, but as it keeps getting worse, more and more are noticing it.
Consider who Obama’s trying to exacerbate the border situation by not telling anybody anything.
Governor Terry Branstad (R-IA) again blasted the Obama administration for secretly dumping illegal immigrant children to the state.
Listen proles, we’re from the gov’t and we’re not here to help you, we’re here to rule you.
Interesting times. Now consider this, life is imitating a Stephen King novel.
A new wristband design will deliver an electric shock if the wearer does not meet fitness goals.
In Quitters Inc. you lose a finger if you don’t do what you’re supposed to, so this is just a step back.
All I know is I ain’t going down no storm drains without a turtle to help me.
Added 30 Seconds Later Because I Forgot It Update!!!!!
You have to love the dim look on Kerry’s face and pissed off look on Netanyahu’s. I figure Bibi is thinking, “What a putz.” but then, he doesn’t seem to use invective like your average Moron.
