Thomas Eric Duncan, Dallas Patient Dies From Ebola … Jesse Jackson Looking to Cash In on Unfair Treatment … “We know there’s different treatment among blacks in this country.”
A note to the family and friends of the departed, do not disgrace his memory with a Jesse Jackson shakedown …
10 days after he was admitted to a Texas hospital, Thomas Eric Duncan died Wednesday from Ebola. Duncan became the first diagnosed case of Ebola when he traveled from Liberia to the United States to visit family and friends, departing Liberia on September 19 and became sick with the disease while in Dallas, Texas. Ebola has a 50% mortality rate and to date there is no known cure. Death is never easy to deal with, but lets keep this specific incident in perspective. Louise Troh, Duncan’s longtime partner, said through a public relations firm that she believes “a thorough examination will take place regarding all aspects of his care.” Enter Jesse Jackson, race-baiter, opportunist, shakedown artist and family spokesman said, “He got sick and went to the hospital and was turned away, and that’s the turning point here.” Hmm, is Jackson blaming Obamacare? What Jackson is looking to do is go for the out of court settlement with the hospital and get his stipend.
Let’s look and examine just how Thomas Eric Duncan came to find himself in Dallas, Texas. Duncan came to the United States after having lied on his exit documents in leaving West Africa that he’d had contact with the virus, even though he had direct contact an Ebola-stricken pregnant woman, who later died. Thomas Eric Duncan answered “no” to questions about whether he’d cared for someone with the virus. Let us also examine how he put so many unsuspecting individuals at risk because of this lie.
Several Ebola patients treated in the United States have survived, but the first person ever diagnosed with the deadly virus on American soil didn’t.
Thomas Eric Duncan died Wednesday at a Texas hospital, 10 days after he was admitted.
“Mr. Duncan succumbed to an insidious disease, Ebola. He fought courageously in this battle. Our professionals, the doctors and nurses in the unit, as well as the entire Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas community, are also grieving his passing,” hospital spokesman Wendell Watson said in a statement.
Duncan’s family is devastated, their pastor told reporters. And the woman he had planned to marry is haunted by “what ifs” about his care.
One question family members have asked repeatedly: Would the outcome have been different if doctors had admitted Duncan to hospital on September 25, the first time he showed up with a fever and stomach pain?
“What if they had taken him right away? And what if they had been able to get treatment to him earlier?” Pastor George Mason of Wilshire Baptist Church in Dallas told reporters.
“He got sick and went to the hospital and was turned away, and that’s the turning point here,” the Rev. Jesse Jackson, a spokesman for the family, told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer.
UPDATE I: At a news conference following the vigil, Jackson was asked if he thought there was an issue of racism at play.
Without coming out and saying it was racism, Jesse Jackson said that the treatment of Thomas Eric Duncan was racism. Good grief. I guess Jackson believes that Ebola is racist too.
“I don’t want to say that, only because that could become the headline,” he said. “Whether you are white in Atlanta or whether you are white in Nebraska or black in Dallas — we know there’s different treatment among blacks in this country.”
But his tone had changed since the morning. Before he left the city, Jackson spoke highly of Duncan’s care.
“I think they’ve done a marvelous recovery, and we want to embrace the hospital staff and work with them on his recovery,” he said.
However, Jackson added that he remains concerned that Duncan was sent home from the hospital the first time he sought help there.
Yup, here it comes … call the “wahmbulance … the Ebola patient who should never have been allowed in the United States, had he told the truth and received medical care received “unfair” treatment. UNREAL.
Ebola patient Thomas Duncan died in the hospital in Dallas Wednesday, after weeks of being treated for the virus, and just hours later his nephew, Joe Weeks, spoke out against the “unfair” way he believes his uncle was being treated by the hospital.
In comments to ABC News, Weeks says his uncle did not receive the same level of care as Ashoka Mukpo, the NBC freelance cameraman who returned to the U.S. for treatment after being stricken with Ebola. He questions why his uncle wasn’t moved to a hospital where two other Ebola patients were successfully treated.
ISIS Video Shows Beheading of British Aid Worker Alan Henning … Threatens American Aid worker Peter Kassig Is Next
ISIS BEHEADS 4TH WESTERNER …
In an act of barbarism and cowardice, ISIS has headed yet another westerner, this time British aid worker Alan Henning. The murdering terrorist who executed Henning blamed the death on the United Kingdom for joining the United States led bombing campaign against the terror group ISIS. Henning was abducted the day after Christmas in 2013 by masked gunmen. He was part of a team of volunteers that traveled to Syria to deliver food and water to people affected by Syria’s civil war. At the end of the VIDEO, an ISIS terrorist is seen threatening a man identified as an American aid worker Peter Kassig.
“Obama, you have started your aerial bombardment of Sham (Syria), which keeps on striking our people, so it is only right that we continue to strike the necks of your people,” the masked militant in the video said.
A short video released by ISIS on Friday shows the apparent beheading of British aid worker Alan Henning, with the executioner blaming the death on the United Kingdom for joining the U.S.-led bombing campaign against the group.
Before he is killed, Henning speaks to the camera, referencing the British Parliament’s decision to participate in coalition of more than 40 countries who have banded together to go after the so-called Islamic State terror group in Iraq and Syria.
At the end of the video, ISIS shows American aid worker Peter Kassig and threatens his life.
“The brutal murder of Alan Henning by ISIL shows just how barbaric and repulsive these terrorists are,” UK Prime Minister David Cameron said, referring to the group also known as ISIS.
Kassig, a 26-year-old American now threatened by the Islamic State group, enlisted in the Army in 2004, and became a Ranger, ultimately serving in the 75th Ranger Regiment, an Army special operations unit.
According to his military record, Kassig trained at Fort Benning, Georgia in 2006, and deployed to Iraq from April to July 2007. He was medically discharged at the rank of private first class in September 2007. His home of record at the time of his enlistment was Indianapolis, Indiana.
His parents, Ed and Paula Kassig, issued a statement asking for the world to pray for their son.
“The Kassig family extends our concern for the family of Alan Henning. We have read about his work and his generous character with great respect and admiration,” the statement said. “We ask everyone around the world to pray for the Henning family, for our son, and for the release of all innocent people being held hostage in the Middle East and around the globe.”
His family said Kassig had been working for the relief organization he found, Special Emergency Response and Assistance, or SERA, when he was captured on Oct. 1, 2013, on his way to Deir Ezzour in eastern Syria. He converted to Islam while in captivity and the family has heard from former hostages that his faith has provided him comfort.
Henning, 47, nicknamed “Gadget,” had joined an aid convoy and was taken captive on Dec. 26, shortly after crossing the border between Turkey and Syria. Earlier this week, Henning’s wife Barbara Henning asked the militants in a televised plea: “Please release him. We need him back home.”
Four Memebers of North Central Texas College Softball Team Killed in Bus-Tractor Trailer Truck Crash
Just absolutely terrible, one second you are a college student with your whole life ahead of you, the next second, it is all over.
Four members of the North Central Texas College woman’s softball team were killed Friday night and several injured when their team bus was struck by a tractor-trailer truck that crossed the center median on Interstate 35 about 70 miles south of Oklahoma City, OK. .

The fatal crash occurred at 9 pm Friday night, three of the girls dies at the scene and one later passed away at Arbuckle Memorial Hospital in Sulphur, Oklahoma. The team was heading home from a scrimmage against Southern Nazarene University, in Bethany,OK. The four members of the NCTC softball team that dies have been identified as 20 year old Brooke Deckard, 20 year old Jaiden Pelton, 19 year old Meagan Richardson and 18 year old Katelynn Woodlee.
Our hearts and prayers go out to their family, friends and the North Texas College student body.
Four members of a girl’s softball team for North Central Texas College in Gainesville were killed after a tractor-trailer crossed the center median and hit the team’s van Friday night in Oklahoma, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol said.
Three of the victims died at the scene and a fourth died a short time later at Arbuckle Memorial Hospital in Sulphur, Oklahoma.
The four victims have been identified by NCTC Chief of Police James Fitch as 20-year-old Brooke Deckard of Blue Ridge, Texas; 20-year-old Jaiden Pelton of Telephone, Texas; 19-year-old Meagan Richardson of Wylie, Texas; and 18-year-old Katelynn Woodleeof Dodd City, Texas.
Oklahoma Highway Patrol Capt. Ronnie Hampton said the Highway Patrol’s investigation should take several weeks including toxicology tests.
“Right now, it’s being investigated like a homicide,” Hampton said, adding that both drivers will undergo standard toxicology tests. Hampton said details of the crash were still not known but “something happened to cause (the semi-tractor driver) to depart the roadway and impact the other vehicle.”
North Central Texas College Press Conference
Another beheading from ISIS, this time is is Jund al-Khilafa who posted a video of French hostage Herve Gourdel being killed that was entitled “Message of blood for the French government”. The group calling itself Jund al-Khilafah, Soldiers of the Caliphate, released a video that appeared to depict the beheading of 55 year old Hervé Gourdel, a mountain guide from Nice, France who had only arrived in Algeria the previous day. TheIslamic terrorists said that the murder of Herve Gourde was a response to his government’s action against Isis in Iraq, where France launched its first air strikes last Friday.
France has confirmed that an Algerian jihadist group linked to Islamic State (IS) militants has beheaded tourist Herve Gourdel, seized on Sunday.
Jund al-Khilafa killed Mr Gourdel, 55, after its deadline for France to halt air strikes on IS in Iraq ran out.
French President Francois Hollande condemned the killing as a “cruel and cowardly” act.
He said that French air strikes which began on IS targets in Iraq last week would continue.
Speaking at the UN general assembly, Mr Hollande said that Mr Gourdel’s abduction and decapitation was a barbaric act of terrorism which presented a problem not only for the region but also for the world.
He said the fight against terrorism should know no borders and that France was now in mourning.
“It is not weakness that should be the response to terrorism but force,” he said.
The video shows Gourdel kneeling, with his arms tied behind his back, in front of four masked militants who read out a statement in Arabic criticising France’s military intervention. They then pushed him on his side and held him down.
The beheading is not shown, but one militant holds his severed head up to the camera. “This is why the Soldiers of the Caliphate in Algeria have decided to punish France, by executing this man, and to defend our beloved Islamic State,” one of the militants said in the video.
Gourdel briefly addressed his family before the militants gave their statement.
The release of the beheading video could have been timed to coincide with Barack Obama’s address to the General Assembly on Wednesday in which the US president urged the world to come together to defeat a jihadist “network of death” in Iraq and Syria.

Atheist Unhappy that Arkansas State Football Team Wore Cross Decal Remembering Deceased Player Markel Owens & Equipment Mgr. Barry Weyer, Jr … University Just Handed Atheists a Major Victory
WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO THE COUNTRY I GREW UP IN?
Let me just say the following, we are not a better country, nor a better people by continually allowing political correctness and Atheist thugs to dictate how we live our lives. The below story will show you just how far as a country we have fallen because every time a secular Atheist troublemaker makes waves, we cower. This has nothing to do with the “establishment clause” of the US Constitution, but instead everything to do with secularism looking to impose their ways on others and the others. If you think things have not changed in this country, and for the worse … think of the following. Think back to Nov. 14, 1970 and the plane crash that took the lives of nearly the entire Marshall football team and devastated a community. Remember the scene in the movie ‘We are Marshall’ where the coaches go to West Virginia and visit then Mountaineer head coach Bobby Bowden? That was a true story, discussed HERE by Bowden, and how so many years later he was brought to emotion. Do you remember the helmets that the University of West Virginia players were wearing, they had what on them? Who thinks back then any Atheist dare tell Bobby Bowden to remove the crosses from those helmets?
That was then, This is Now ... The Arkansas State University football team in Jonesboro Arkansas wore a small cross on the back of their helmets with the initials MO and BW in honor of their fallen team member and equipment manager, Markel Owens and Barry Weyer. Sadly, Weyed died in a car accident in June and Owens was shot to death in January 2014. The players thought it would be a special way to remember and honor both of them by placing a decal featuring their initials on the arms of a cross. According to Barry Weyer Sr., the father of one of the deceased being honored, “the players knew they were both Christians so they decided to use the cross along with their initials. They wanted to carry the spirits of Markel and Barry Don onto the field for one more season.” This is what sports and team work inspires.
But that was not acceptable to some trouble-making atheists who had no connection with the team, the players or those being remembered. An attorney contacted Arkansas State and told them they he was “uncomfortable” with the players wearing a cross decal and wanted it removed. Louis Nisenbaum, an attorney in Jonesboro, Arkansas, saw the team playing on television recently. He is the trouble maker who reached out to the university’s legal counsel to complain about the cross. Sadly, the gutless wonders and the legal department crumbled and allowed themselves to be bullied by atheist terrorists. When the hell are schools actually going to stand up for what is right, instead of acting like a bunch of ball-less wonders in the fact of secularism and Atheists?
Arkansas State University attorney Lucinda McDaniel agreed that the symbol was problematic, recommending that athletic director Terry Mohajir order it removed or alter it. Mohajir says after speaking with the university’s legal counsel they will modify the sticker removing any religious symbols, but keeping the initials. Gutless, just simply gutless.
In a statement released by the university, Mohajir stated:
“I am 100 percent in support of our coaches’ and players’ expression of faith, as well as their choice to honor the two individuals associated with our team who passed away by voluntarily wearing a cross decal on the back of their helmets. Unfortunately, we have received a complaint that use of the cross violates the Constitutional prohibition against separation of church and state.”
“After consulting with University counsel, we have been advised to either modify the decal or remove it completely. Thus, in order to ensure that we are in full compliance with Constitutional law, we will be modifying the decal to still honor the two individuals who are no longer with us.”
HOW IS THIS CROSS WITH INITIALS OF FALLEN TEAMMATES “ESTABLISHING A RELIGION?” It is not. It is honoring individuals who had died, nothing more, nothing less. The players VOLUNTARILY wore the decal on their helmets, THEY WERE NOT FORCED TO!!! The only thing that the player have been forced to do, is not wear the cross decal because of a belligerent, trouble-making and narrow minded atheist.
Athletics director Terry Mohajir said he wanted to fight the decision because the decal was intended to honor former player Markel Owens and equipment manager Barry Weyer, who both passed away this year. However, Mohajir said he had little choice but to follow advice from the university’s legal counsel to remove or modify the symbol.
“My job is to support our players and our coaches in their expression of any type of grief, and that’s what I was doing,” Mohajir told USA TODAY Sports. “Yes, it is unfortunate, and I am disappointed. However, we’re also going to uphold whatever legal advice we got, and that’s what we did based on the Establishment Clause of the U.S. Constitution. That’s what we were told we needed to do. So that’s what we did.”
Arkansas State, you might want to fire your legal council and get a backbone. At some point someone, some institution is going to have to stand up to these bullies. This cannot continue to happen.
Thanks Arkansas State, all you did by caving to Atheist thugs was to promote secularism and Atheism as seen by Freedom From Religion Foundation attorney Rebecca Markert comments when she told the outlet that the decision to remove the symbol is “great news” and that “putting religious imagery on public school property is unconstitutional.”

How sad, one of the very most funny comedians ever has passed away … “CAN WE TALK HERE?”
Comedic icon Joan Rivers has passed away at the age of 81 at Mount Sinai Hospital in NYC from complications of surgery on her vocal cords. Joan Rivers was groundbreaking, edgy, unabashed, but most of all she was just funny as hell. On a person note she is and will always be one of my all-time favorites. Rivers said things that no one else would, but the way she delivered it was not mean. Her mocking of others was only outdone by her incredible self-deprecating humor. She was born Joan Alexandra Molinsky on June 8, 1933, in Brooklyn, NY to Russian immigrants. Joan Rivers got her big break in 1965 when she appeared on the Tonight Show. Then In 1983, after frequent appearances on Carson’s “Tonight Show,” she was designated the first permanent guest host. She certainly did break down barriers for women in comedy.
One of the best comments in describing Rivers was, “Comedians typically push the edge of the envelope, but Rivers proved time and again that she didn’t even see the envelope.” So very, very true. The world just became a little less funny.
Joan Rivers, a pioneering female stand-up comic and the queen of “Can We Talk?” gossip, has died, her daughter, Melissa Rivers, said Thursday. She was 81.
Rivers was undergoing surgery on her vocal cords at a clinic in New York City on Aug. 28 when she stopped breathing and had to be transported to Mount Sinai Hospital. Melissa Rivers and Joan Rivers’ 13-year-old grandson, Cooper, who live in Malibu, California, rushed to her bedside.
“My mother’s greatest joy in life was to make people laugh,” Melissa Rivers said in a statement. “Although that is difficult to do right now, I know her final wish would be that we return to laughing soon.”
Joan Rivers stand-up on The Tonight Show and hilarious monologue from 1984, must watch, she was just too, too funny.
Don Rickles — Our dear Joan is gone. Knowing her, working with he and enjoying the fun times of life with her was special. She will always be in our hearts. She was a good friend to Barbara and I. Melissa, be strong and take care of your son Cooper. Joan…we will miss you.
Gilbert Gottfried – First Robin. Now Joan. The world just became a less funny place. RIP Joan Rivers.
Rob Schneider ?– #JoanRivers was thee trailblazer for ALL WOMEN COMICS WHO FOLLOWED!She proved a woman could be just as outrageous and as funny as the guys!
Joan Rivers returns to The Tonight Show. She had been banned from the show forever after she took a gig with Fox and went up against the comedic king Johnny Carson. Rivers first appeared on the Tonight Show 49 years ago, then was banned. However, Jimmy Fallon welcomed Joan Rivers and she explained why she was a little late as only Joan could.
