Great, first diagnosed case of Ebola in the United States, what’s next … the Bubonic plague?
The CDC, Center for Disease Control, confirmed on Tuesday afternoon that an unidentified man who traveled by plane from Liberia to Dallas, Texas has been diagnosed and has tested positive for the Ebola virus. The individual has been in “strict isolation” at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital since September 29. This is a first and hardly one to stand up and cheer about. This is the first reported diagnosed case of Ebola in the United States. The CDC director stated later in a press conference that the patient’s condition as “critically ill.”
Who thinks that maybe individuals not only need to be screened and checked for fever before they get on a plane from Liberia and countries stricken with Ebola, but when they get off as well? How about they need to be isolated and quarantined fr a period of time until the incubation period id over? Hmm?
“Give me your tired, your poor, your
huddled masses yearning to breathe free Ebola.”
Officials with the Centers for Disease Control have confirmed that a person in Dallas definitely has the Ebola virus. Tuesday’s official determination makes the patient, at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas, the first diagnosed Ebola case in the United States.
Officials with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Texas Department of State Health Services, Presbyterian Hospital and Dallas County Health and Human Services (DCHHS) all participated in an afternoon press conference. CDC Director Thomas Frieden related the information that the individual who tested positive had traveled to Liberia. The person left Liberia on September 19 and arrived in the United States on September 20 with no virus symptoms. Frieden said it was four or five days later that the patient, who is believed to be male, began developing symptoms and was ultimately admitted to Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas on Sunday, September 28.
“We received in our laboratory today specimens from the individual, tested them and they tested positive for Ebola. The State of Texas also operates a laboratory that found the same results,” Frieden said. After the confirmation statement Frieden went on to stress that the testing for Ebola is very accurate, saying that it’s a PCR test of blood.
A patient being treated at a Dallas hospital is the first person diagnosed with Ebola in the United States, health officials announced Tuesday.
The unidentified man left Liberia on September 19 and arrived in the United States on September 20, said Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
At that time, the individual did not have symptoms. “But four or five days later,” he began to exhibit them, Frieden said. The individual was hospitalized and isolated Sunday at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital.
Citing privacy concerns, health officials declined to release any details about how the patient contracted the virus or how he was being treated.
The patient is believed to have had a handful of contacts with people after showing symptoms of the virus, and before being isolated, Frieden said. A CDC team was en route to Texas to help investigate those contacts, and Texas Gov. Rick Perry will be in Dallas on Wednesday to hold a news conference.

Kanye West said to stand up … SM says to Kanye West, SHUT UP!!!
In a concert in Australia, this arrogant, egotistical stopped his concert and said he would not continue. even pressuring two individuals that were in wheelchairs. But once West’s minions gave the okay and confirmed that they were in a wheel chair, he went on with what passes for music these days. Wow, how big of you Kanya. Why does anyone give this no talent, narcissist any of their hard earned money is beyond me.
A village is missing their idiot.
Kanye West said to stand up!
The outspoken rapper demanded his fans get up out of their seats during his show at Qantas Credit Union Arena in Sydney, Australia Friday night. When West noticed that there were a few fans still seated, he halted the show until they also obliged.
“I can’t do this show until everybody stand up,” he insisted. “Unless you got a handicap pass, and you get special parking and s–t.”
Turns out one or maybe two of the fans still seated were in fact in wheelchairs. It’s unclear from the YouTube video posted Saturday how many disabled concertgoers were there, but West asked the audience to confirm that they could not get up.
Reports Says that Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson was Badly Beaten by Michael Brown Prior to Shooting
DRIP, DRIP, DRIP … Information comes out that police officer Darren Wilson was severely beaten prior to shooting.
Fox News is reporting that Ferguson, MO police officer Darren Wilson was badly beaten by Michael Brown during the confrontation prior to the shooting death of Brown. ABC News is reporting that the characterization of Officer Darren Wilson being injured in his confrontation with Michael Brown comes on the day that a grand jury was expected to begin hearing evidence in the shooting. Who wouldn’t release such information in a story that has been so one-sided reported and slanted against officer Wilson by the MSM? And a bias governor calling for a “vigorous prosecution” According to reports, the grand jury will be shown the hospital photo of the office’s facial injuries.
Darren Wilson, the Ferguson, Mo., police officer whose fatal shooting of Michael Brown touched off more than a week of demonstrations, suffered severe facial injuries, including an orbital (eye socket) fracture, and was nearly beaten unconscious by Brown moments before firing his gun, a source close to the department’s top brass told FoxNews.com.
“The Assistant (Police) Chief took him to the hospital, his face all swollen on one side,” said the insider. “He was beaten very severely.”
According to the well-placed source, Wilson was coming off another case in the neighborhood on Aug. 9 when he ordered Michael Brown and his friend Dorain Johnson to stop walking in the middle of the road because they were obstructing traffic. However, the confrontation quickly escalated into physical violence, the source said.
“They ignored him and the officer started to get out of the car to tell them to move,” the source said. “They shoved him right back in, that’s when Michael Brown leans in and starts beating Officer Wilson in the head and the face.”
Wilson suffered a fractured eye socket in the fracas, and was left dazed by the initial confrontation, the source said. He is now “traumatized, scared for his life and his family, injured and terrified” that a grand jury, which began hearing evidence on Wednesday, will “make some kind of example out of him,” the source said.
What sounds more plausible, the accounts above or that Michael Brown was assassinated by a rogue cop being shot in the back when autopsy images specifically show all shots to the front of Brown?
Legal Insurrection has more as to the possible validity that Darren Wilson was beaten badly. Even the NY Times reported it, albeit buried deep in the article.
Further indicating the story may be true is the fact that even the liberal NY Times reported today that Wilson was injured during the altercation. Allahpundit notes at Hot Air that, although the Times buried the news in the 21st paragraph of its article, it was the first report in a major paper that Wilson was injured at the hands of Brown. Now Fox News has climbed aboard, with more details.
In addition, yesterday blogger Jim Hoft had reported at Gateway Pundit that police sources had informed him that Wilson suffered an “orbital blowout fracture to the eye socket” as a result of his encounter with Brown.
St. Louis County Prosecutor Robert McCulloch said the grand jury investigation will be thorough. I guess this is the reason why so many want him to be removed from this case. Many with an agenda just want Officer Wilson to be indicted, tried, convicted and put to death as fast as possible without looking at all the facts.
”They will have absolutely everything there is, every piece of paper, every photograph, every bit of physical evidence, all of the forensic information,” the district attorney said.
Supporters of Wilson, however, point to a videotape taken by a Ferguson resident showing Brown’s body lying in the street. In the background of the video a man’s voice can be heard saying, “Police got out and ran after him. The next thing I know he’s coming back towards the officer. The police had his gun drawn on him.”
That would conflict with witnesses who said Brown was standing still with his hands raised when Wilson shot him.
Antonio French, an alderman in Ferguson, reacted with skepticism to McCullough’s announcement that it could be another two weeks before there is a decision on whether to prosecute the police officer.
HHS & HealthCare.gov Official Marilyn Tavenner: “Please Delete this Email” … More from the Most Transparent WH Administration EVER!
YUP, NOT A SMIDGEN OF CORRUPTION … And now for something completely different, the Obama administration deleting emails.
From Sharyl Attkisson comes the latest example of not a smidgen of corruption from the Obama administration. Attkinsson reports that an email obtained by Congress shows the top official for Healthcare.gov at CMS under the Department of HHS, Marilyn Tavenner, instructed the agency’s top spokesman to “Please delete this email.” It would appear other than golf, the Obama administrations greatest past time is deleting emails and keeping the truth from the American people. Transparency, eh?
Marilyn Tavenner – It all depend on how you interpret “delete this email”
An email obtained by Congress shows the top official for Healthcare.gov at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services under the Department of Health and Human Services, Marilyn Tavenner, instructed the agency’s top spokesman to “Please delete this email.”
The instruction appears significant for several reasons: First, the email to be deleted included an exchange between key White House officials and CMS officials. Second, the email was dated October 5, 2013, five days into the disastrous launch of HealthCare.gov. Third, federal law requires federal officials to retain copies of –not delete– email exchanges. And fourth, the document to be deleted is covered under Congressional subpoena as well as longstanding Freedom of Information requests made by members of the media (including me).
In a letter today, House Energy and Commerce leaders asked Tavenner to explain why she asked her colleague to delete the email, and the letter questions whether there are other instances in which she instructed HHS staff to delete emails. The letter also asks for more details regarding Congressional subpoenaed documents, including Tavenner emails, that CMS recently said might be permanently lost; and it requests an explanation as to why redactions are made in some documents provided to Congress so far.

Bizarre: Harrisburg, PA Mother Kimberly Tutko Said She Didn’t Know Her 8 Year Old Mentally Disabled Son Had Been Dead in Home for Days
A Harrisburg, Pennsylvania mother, Kimberly Tutko, stated that she did not know that her 8 year old severely mentally disabled had died in her home until her husband told her four days after the fact. HUH? According to accounts, Kimberly Tutko noticed a strange odor coming from the 3rd floor of their home along the 2100 block of Green Street. Her husband, Jarrod Nicholas Tutko, brought down their son, Jarrod Jr., who had been dead for four days. The mother called 911 and police The 8 year old deceased child was severely mentally disabled and was diagnosed with autism, failure to thrive and Fragile X Syndrome, a genetic defect, that causes intellectual disability, behavioral and learning challenges. It’s not clear how the child died; however, an autopsy is scheduled for this week. According to court records, 38 year old Jarrod Nicholas Tutko Sr. was charged with endangering the welfare of children, concealing the death of a child and abuse of a corpse. His bail was set at $500,000.
The mother of a boy found dead in an uptown Harrisburg home said her husband waited about four days to reveal to her that their son had died.
Kimberly Tutko said she noticed a strange odor coming from the third floor of her Green Street home Friday night.
Her husband, Jarrod Nicholas Tutko, went upstairs and came back with body of their eight-year-old son, Jarrod Jr., wrapped in a sheet and laid him on the bathroom floor, she said.
Believing the boy had just died, Kimberly Tutko said she pulled the sheet back and quickly realized he had been dead for several days.
Kimberly Tutko said her husband told her the child died on Tuesday.
“I said to him ‘Why didn’t you say anything?’” Kimberly Tutko said. “He said he was too afraid to say anything because of other kids in the house.”
Kimberly Tutko said she understands people will find it difficult to believe she did not know her son was dead. YA THINK!
The couple has five other children, ages 13, 12, 10, 6 and 3, were removed from the home Friday night and place in protective custody. Several of the children suffer from serious medical conditions. The children are being cared for by the county children and youth specialists.
See What Liberal Democrat Barney Frank Says About Obama Admin on Obamacare: “They Just Lied to People”
JUST HOW BAD IS OBAMACARE … EVEN UBER-LIBERAL DEMOCRAT BARNEY FRANK CALLS IT NOTHING BUT A PACK OF LIES … AND CALLED OBAMA A LIAR.
You know that Barack Obama’s signature piece of legislation is a disaster when even libs like former Rep. Barney Frank come out against the Obama administration and say, “they just lied to people.” Think about what Barney Frank just said. A liberal Democrat just admitted that Barack Obama knowingly lied to the American people. Does anyone really wonder why Obama has no more credibility? Frank stated in his HUFO interview that Obama should have better explained the situation to the American people, and laid out the possibilities of losing their existing plans. Sorry, trying to hold back the laughter. Had Obama done such a thing, he knew that the ACA would be more unpopular than it already was and he would lose reelection. That is why he lied.
President Barack Obama made a major political mistake by lying about the details of his health care plan, according to former House Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank (D-Mass.).
“The rollout was so bad, and I was appalled — I don’t understand how the president could have sat there and not been checking on that on a weekly basis,” Frank told HuffPost during a July interview. “But frankly, he should never have said as much as he did, that if you like your current health care plan, you can keep it. That wasn’t true. And you shouldn’t lie to people. And they just lied to people.”
Obama has taken significant flak in conservative circles for claiming that his health care overhaul would allow all existing health care plans to continue, when, in fact, new consumer protection standards would require some people to sign up for more comprehensive insurance. The law provides government subsidies to help people of modest means pay for the more robust plans. Frank is a strong supporter of the law, and he has repeatedly defended Obama and his legislative agenda.
“If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor PERIOD!
If you like your health care plan you will be able to keep your healthcare plan PERIOD!
No one will take it away, no matter what!”
This is the reason why Obamacare is as unpopular as ever and will become even more unpopular in the future. Everyone has not figured out they that they have been lied to.
Kaiser Family Foundation Poll: Obamacare is More Unpopular Than Ever … Now at 53% Unfavorable … (Update: Even Barney Frank Calls Obama Admin Lies)
OBAMACARE AS UNPOPULAR AS EVER …
According to the most recent Kaiser Family Foundation poll Barack Obama’s signature piece of legislation is more unpopular than ever. Fifty-three percent now view Obamacare unfavorably, an 8% increase since June 2014. As the Lonely Conservative opines, someone should tell Nancy Pelosi about this poll as when Democrats passed this horrible health care law and said we would then find out what was in it, they will like it. What is most comical about the WAPO article is their disbelief that Obamacare could become more negative after so-called manipulated data that there was a major drop in the nation’s uninsured rate. A note to the WAPO, maybe it is because individuals personal experiences are not the same as fabricated numbers.
Even after survey after survey has recently shown a major drop in the nation’s uninsured rate, Obamacare just had its worst month in a key health-care poll.
Kaiser Family Foundation, which has done arguably the best and most consistent polling on the health-care law in the past four-plus years, found that public opinion on the law sank to a record low in July. More people than ever (53 percent) last month said they viewed the law unfavorably, an increase of 8 percentage points since June — one of the biggest opinion swings ever.
As the foundation notes, more people seemingly made up their minds about the law last month. The rate of those without an opinion on the Affordable Care Act dropped from 16 percent in June to 11 percent in July.
The unfavorable opinion of Obamacare has not even come close to its apex. Many Americans have not experienced the train-wreck of Obamacare yet. This was purposely done by Obama and Democrats with targeted delays until after the 2014 midterm and 2016 elections so to lessen the wrath of “We the People” against Democrats. Once the ACA has its full impact on Americans, it will be over 60% unfavorable.
Daily Commentary – Thursday, July 31, 2014 – Possibility of a Revolutionary New Blood Test For Cancer
- Developed by British scientists, the blood test may be able to detect all types of cancer
It was August 15, 2006 when Liz and husband David Carroll said on that 3 year old Marcus Fiesel disappeared in an Anderson Township, OH park. This sparking a search by thousands of volunteers that lasted several days. Marcus’ mom Liz Caroll tearfully begged people to help find her son, all the while she knew exactly what had happened and what she did to this poor child.
Marcus Fiesel, RIP
The death of 3-year-old Marcus Fiesel, who authorities said was killed by his foster parents in 2006, will be featured on “Deadline: Crime with Tamron Hall” 10 p.m. Sunday on the Investigation Discovery channel.
The one-hour show includes an interview with Liz Carroll, Marcus’ foster mother, who is serving a life prison sentence after her conviction in a Clermont County Common Pleas Court in 2007.
Investigation Discovery, one of the sister Discovery Channel networks, can be found in Greater Cincinnati on Time Warner Channels 1139 (HD) and 139, and on Northern Kentucky Time Warner Channels 948 (HD) and 471, and Cincinnati Fioptics Channels 675 (HD) and 275.
What really happened to Marcus as Liz Carroll was providing crocodile tears …
Liz and David Carroll wrapped Marcus in a blanket, bound him with duct tape and left him in a hot closet without food and water while they went out of town for a weekend family reunion, prosecutors said.
After finding him dead, David Carroll and his live-in lover, Amy Baker, took Marcus’ body to a rural area and burned it with gasoline. Then they threw the remains in the Ohio River.
The horrific 2006 murder of 3 year old Marcus Fiesel, a special needs Foster child, was one that shocked the senses of everyone, including myself. However, from the outset of the case of missing Marcus Fiesel, some thing just seemed to be wrong. Flashback to 2006, Scared Monkeys followed the events from the outset and had posted some rather critical articles of the foster parents accounts, obviously striking a nerve with Liz Carroll. The posts prompted Liz to leave a comment on Missing & Exploited web page that was far from PG rated and some what threatening. Needless to say it was forwarded to authorities. That very next morning, as fate would have it, Liz and David Carroll were arrested in the death of Marcus Fiesel.
Newspapers and television stations in southwest Ohio have followed every step in the case, and now that his foster parents have been charged, the story has grabbed the attention of media outlets throughout the United States.
There are Web sites that feature photo albums, message boards, chat rooms and slide and video shows. One of those is www.scaredmonkeys.com, dedicated to exploited and missing children. “Red,” one of the site’s co-founders, said after news of Marcus’ disappearance was linked to his Web site, he received an e-mail from Marcus’ foster mother. She chastised the site for their portrayal.
“As soon as she did that, well, it was like, she’s guilty,” Red said Friday from his office in Maine. “You knew this was going to end bad. The radar just went up. It raises the hair on the back of your neck. When you kill your son, and go public pleading for help, it brings it to a special level of hell.”
He said Marcus’ story has drawn widespread coverage because people are so “disgusted by it.” (Middletown Journal)
Here is one comment from Liz that we were able to print. Too bad she was lying through her murderous teeth.
First, I would like to state that the most important thing that everyone should be concerned about is finding my son. My family’s past and living arrangements have absolutely nothing to do with finding him. My family left our home to avoid media and multiple stangers from sitting outside our house at all hours. We have cooperated 110% with the detectives and have stayed in touch with them on a daily basis. Again, my family has done nothing wrong, we love and miss Marcus. I regret going to the park, not sitting down and not eating that morning. My family and I take day care and foster care children to King’s Island, Water parks, town parks, YMCA, aquariums, carnivals, festivals, and many more places. Since this incident, I have not been left alone and we haven’t taken out kids anywhere but school shopping. I am begging for anyone and everyone that reads this to PLEASE help me find my son. I know that I will not be able to care for him after this incident but I still need to know that he is alright. PLEASE call crime stoppers with ANY possible leads!!!!!!Thank you.
