Night Watch

North Korea: On 10 October, North Korea celebrated Party Foundation Day in honor of the 69thanniversary of the Workers' Party of Korea. State media reported that Kim Jong Un visited Kumsusan Palace at midnight on 10 October with senior military officials. He made no public appearance.
Comment: Kumsusan Palace contains the tombs of Kim Il-sung and Kim Chong-il. It would be normal for the head of the Party to appear in public on this occasion, as Kim did in the past two years. The obvious inferences are that Kim is well enough to pay tribute to the founders, but does not want to be seen by the public.

Hong Kong: On Thursday, Hong Kong called off talks with protesting students. Authorities said that the students' call for an expansion of an uncooperative movement undermined the basis for talks and made it impossible to have a constructive dialogue.

Chief Secretary Carrie Lam blamed the government's cancellation of the talks on the students' demands for universal suffrage, which she said was not in accordance with Hong Kong's Basic Law; on their illegal occupation of parts of the city and on their fresh calls for the people to rally in protest.

Comment: Once the size of the protest movement decreased, talks became pointless because the protestors no longer could claim to be the voice of a political movement.

India-PakistanUpdate. Indian and Pakistani forces exchanged mortar and gun fire along the International Border for a fourth day in a row. Pakistani troops targeted over 130 villages and 60 Border Out Posts (BOPs) overnight, injuring 12 people. The firing and shelling continued intermittently until mid-day. The Pakistan Rangers and the Indian Border Security Force were responsible for most of the firing.

A limited number of attacks occurred across the Line of Control.
Reading the bio alongside Steven Bucci’s Daily Signal piece on the Ebola-inspired Liberia travel ban made me want to meet him and shake his hand. He “served America for three decades as an Army special forces officer and top Pentagon official,” now serving as director of the Allison Center for Foreign Policy Studies at the Heritage Foundation.

Military Hero. Heritage. How do I not love that? Yet oddly, his piece opposing a temporary block on incoming West African travelers struck me as completely wrong, so my usual instinct kicked in— to welcome him to my radio show.

His headline, “Wisdom Should Prevail Over Panic,” suggests he is the wise one and I am panicking. I asked him why he would attach a “panic” label to the large number of Americans advocating the disallowance of incoming LIberians:

SB: Because frankly you are then excluding a ton of folks who are not posing any danger to anyone, you’re really hurting the economies of those countries, when they’re already teetering on the brink, frankly.

MD: So because of concern over the fragile economies of West African nations, or the slight that we may inflict to thousands of people who pose no risk— because of those, we need to say, “Hey, just in from Monrovia? Come on in!”

SB: The biggest reason is those kind of bans have historically been proven to not do what they promise to do. They don’t give you the level of protection as a society, whether it be a city or a country that it seems intuitively they would.

MD: Well, what’s an example of one where everybody thought our level of safety would go up, and it did not?

SB: If you do the analysis after the 1918 Spanish flu, which was like the worst pandemic ever… there were communities, cities in the United States that tried to do that, they tried to basically wall themselves off, keep everybody else out, keep all of their people in, and the disease made it in anyway.

MD: But these are American cities… where freedom of passage, and roads, and— I can’t imagine walling off a city. In no way is that analogous to what a country can do. We are absolutely able to monitor who comes into and out of our country. Liberian passport equals you’re not getting in.

SB: Looking at this particular outbreak, the country of Sierra Leone started, after they had one case that came in, they said, ‘Okay, nobody else is coming in our country’… and it failed, it failed miserably, and they wasted a ton of assets trying to do it, instead of putting the assets against the more useful population distancing and mitigation…

Here’s what was so peculiar: Mr. Bucci had several ideas that were thoroughly valuable in terms of what West African nations can do, and what we can do, to minimize the spread of Ebola. I had no quarrel with any of them. What was disorienting was the enormous pushback— from a conservative!— with logic pulled straight from the index cards of the left. I returned to his curious notion that an American attempt to stop incoming Liberians would be as failed as the Spanish Flu barriers of 1918 or the sparse border controls of West Africa.

The Islamic State closes in on Baghdad airport, armed with American MANPADs

Obama refused to leave troops in Iraq. We still have bases in Europe and Asia to keep the peace secured in World War II and the Korean war, but Obama thought better of leaving 25,000 troops in Iraq — proving yet again what side he is on.

Obama supports the jihadists, and has done so in every conflict since taking office.

The Islamic State is conquering whole swaths of the Middle East with Obama-provided weaponry.

The Islamic State seized man-portable air defense systems (MANPADS), Sidewinder missiles, and even MiG-21B fighter jets when they took Tabqa airbase back in August.

Obama has been arming the Islamic State for years. Just ask Ambassador Christopher Stevens. Who were they running weapons to in Syria?

Islamic State threatens to kill Twitter employees for suspending their accounts

  / Jihad Watch
CostoloThis is, of course, how the Islamic State deals with anyone who dares get in their way. Theirs is a rule of total savagery and brutality. And the West’s partial and inadequate response to it is not going to come close to making Obama’s vow to destroy it a reality.

“ISIS threatens to kill Twitter employees for suspending terrorists’ accounts: CEO,” by Meg Wagner, New York Daily News, October 10, 2014:
ISIS might have a new target: Twitter employees.
After the site began cracking down on the terrorists, suspending their Twitter accounts, its staff received a slew of death threats from the Islamic fighters, the company’s CEO Dick Costolo told Vanity Fair.
Costolo did not detail the contents of the messages, but said ISIS fighters threatened to “assassinate” him and other Twitter employees.
“That’s a jarring thing for anyone to deal with,” he said.
The shut-down accounts were used to promote terrorism and discuss violence — topics forbidden under the site’s terms of service. The social media giant has long refused to give criminals a voice online, he said.
“It’s against the law in many of the countries in which we operate for them to use it to promote their organization,” Costolo said. “And when we do find those accounts we shut them down. We shut them down quite actively.
ISIS has proven itself to be an especially social media-savvy organization. While Twitter shuts down accounts when it finds them, plenty of terrorists have used the site to discuss their mission and connect with other fighters before being ousted.
In August, the group tweeted threats against the U.S., warning, “We are in your cities.”
Other fighters have tweeted photos of themselves holding cats and jars of Nutella in order to seem softer and friendlier to the West….

UN: Hundreds of Civilians Will Be 'Massacred' If ISIS Takes Kobani

Image: UN: Hundreds of Civilians Will Be 'Massacred' If ISIS Takes KobaniAt least 500 civilians who remain trapped in the Syrian Kurdish border town of Kobani are likely to be "massacred" if it falls to the Islamic State group, the U.N. envoy to Syria warned Friday, calling on the world to help avert a catastrophe as the extremists pushed deeper into the embattled town.

Staffan de Mistura raised the specter of some of the worst genocides of the 20th century during a news conference in Geneva, where he held up a map of the town along the Syria-Turkey border and said a U.N. analysis shows only a small corridor remains open for people to enter or flee Kobani.

The dramatic warning came as the Islamic State group pushed into Kobani from the south and east, taking over most of the so-called "Kurdish security quarter" — an area where Kurdish militiamen who are struggling to defend the town maintain security buildings and where the police station, the municipality and other local government offices are located.

The onslaught by the Islamic State group on Kobani, which began in mid-September, has forced more than 200,000 to flee across the border into Turkey. Activists say the fighting has already killed more than 500 people.

"The city is in danger," said Farhad Shami, a Kurdish activist in Kobani reached by phone from Beirut. He reported heavy fighting on the town's southern and eastern sides and said the Islamic State group was bringing in more reinforcements.

U.S.-led airstrikes against the extremists appear to have failed to blunt their push on Kobani. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that with the new advances, the Islamic State group was now in control of 40 percent of the town.

The Observatory, which collects its information from a network of activists on the ground in Syria, said a suicide bomber from the Islamic State group blew his car up near the Grand Mosque just west of the security quarter, but there was no immediate word of casualties.

The U.S. Central Command said in a statement that the U.S.-led coalition conducted nine airstrikes in Syria on Thursday and Friday. It said strikes near Kobani destroyed two Islamic State training facilities, as well as vehicles and tanks. Another strike in the eastern province of Deir el-Zour — controlled by the extremists — destroyed an Islamic State armored vehicle staging facility, it said.

On Friday, the militants shelled Kobani's single border crossing with Turkey in an effort to capture it and seal off the town, a local Kurdish official and Syrian activists said.

Jesse Jackson Inserts Himself into the Ebola Fray Courtesy of the Race Card
By: Diane Sori

OK folks let's get something straight right off the top...Jesse Jackson (in my opinion) is a race-baiting troublemaker, bigot, and hater of anybody white...period.

Now once again butting in where he does NOT belong, Jackson told a Dallas County commissioner that Thomas Eric Duncan was turned away by a Dallas hospital solely because he was black and lacked insurance. But let's tell the truth here about the man Jackson is defending...Thomas Eric Duncan entered our country from Ebola ridden West Africa...from Liberia... knowing he had contracted the virus...knowing he could infect others on the plane... knowing he could infect others in the apartment complex he went to...knowing that he was bringing a deadly disease into America...and he did NOT give a damn.

And while I hope that he rests in peace, Thomas Eric Duncan is NOT someone we need to have sympathy for nor do we have to buy into the media hype that tries to make him a hero of sorts, as Duncan's death leaves America knowing that he was 'Ground Zero' for one of the biggest scare tactics ever perpetrated on the American his ONE case of Ebola...his ONE case...has brought our country basically to its knees in fear as the media keeps bloviating that Ebola is now here in America. But the fact is that Ebola is NOT here in is NOT running rampant though our population like it is in West is NOT here as NONE of the persons confirmed as having Ebola were infected here in our country. Duncan, however, unlike the American doctor, nurse, and photographer who we all knew were infected and who came home for treatment under the most guarded and protective of circumstances, was the ONE selfish man who while infected back home in Liberia still deliberately chose to bring Ebola to America.

And Jackson knows all this but because Duncan was black Jackson and his ilk saw a ripe opportunity to pull the race card out of their pockets yet again.

Leading a prayer vigil with Duncan's family outside of Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas last Tuesday, Jackson spewed out his usual 'it's the white man's fault’ mantra...spewed out that when Duncan first went to the hospital he was sent home with antibiotics without getting a complete and thorough exam...without being tested for Ebola...just because he was a poor black man. But the truth is why would he be tested for Ebola when it was he who withheld the much needed information that he had been in direct contact with an active Ebola patient back home in Liberia...and with NO active Ebola here in the U.S. how was the hospital to know...simply...they were NOT.

"Poor, African, without insurance, given a cursory examination. The signs of Ebola were evident,"
Jackson said at an all for show press conference. Adding, "From West Africa - it's most rapid right now in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea - and without health insurance. He was sent back into the community. It did not give him the thorough exam he deserved"...and all I can say is...'LIAR.'

And now after Duncan's death, Jackson, appearing at the request of Duncan's family, lambasted hospital officials for "sending Ebola back into the community"... which is an unadulterated lie that he hopes the public will buy into. Buy into as dollar signs flash before his eyes as Jackson's bloviations are all about money and NOTHING Duncan's family is now suing the hospital, egged on by Jackson himself. And we all know race-baiting, hate, and perceived racial disparity is big business...a business where a few like Jackson amass great wealth at the expense of their own people.

And again, Duncan did NOT tell hospital officials where he was from or the contact he had with an active Ebola patient...doctors and nurses are NOT mind readers you know. And Duncan's family who are also guilty of NOT telling hospital officials his history the first time he presented himself...are NOT entitled to nor should they NOT get one bloody dime...and Jackson needs to butt-out...period.

But Jackson butting out is like Obama telling the truth...and we know neither will happen. In fact, Jackson continued on in a Tuesday blog entry on the Huffington Post, where he had the nerve to post that, “What role did [Duncan‘s] lack of privilege play in the treatment he received? He is being treated as a criminal rather than as a patient...As followers of Jesus, we are called to work for the day when those with privilege, most often white people, have greater access to better medical care than those whom Jesus calls ‘the least of our sisters and brothers.'"

Jesse Jackson evoking the name of Jesus...especially using His name to spew racial hate and paramount to Eric Holder being a spokesperson for the paramount to Barack HUSSEIN Obama being a Christian.

And to add to the grievousness of this whole situation, of course Jackson tried to imply that Ebola being in America is all the Republicans fault because the Texas response to Duncan would have been better if state leaders and legislators had NOT opposed ObamaCare. "Maybe the fact that Southern states from Virginia around to Texas rejected Affordable Care, rejected $100 billion and Medicaid, there would no doubt be a better infrastructure for poor people all across Texas and the South," Jackson said.

Laughable words at best as poor people get better care than working class people for they can walk into any emergency room in this country and NOT be turned away whether they have insurance or NOT. And lest we forget that while Duncan might have been poor he was NOT an American...he was NOT a resident...he held NO 'green card'...yet America is supposed to go above and beyond for him...above and beyond for a man who did NOT care that he knowingly and willingly brought one of the most deadly diseases known to man into our country...I think NOT. And this has NOTHING to do with the color of his skin but everything to do with the selfish, 'all about me' attitude of a man who had NO business boarding that plane... who had NO business lying to officials before he even did so.

And let's NOT forget that all Jackson's bloviations were played to a commission who also is of the 'everything is whitey's fault' mentality. Commissioner John Wiley Price called the issue of race in Duncan's case the "elephant in the room." Now he is entitled to his opinion of course, but following those words up with, "We know why what happened at Presbyterian happened. It's historically what has happened in this community...if a person who looks like me shows up without any insurance, they don't get the same treatment," shows that for Price...with his words "who looks like me"...just like for Jackson....everything is about race and NOT about the fact that Duncan lied from the time he applied for his visa in Liberia all the way up until the day he was admitted to the hospital in the throes of full blown Ebola.

Don't you just love how for Jackson, Price, and the other race-baiters, these pesky little facts keep getting in the way.

Thankfully, Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas is fighting back against Jackson's and Price's racism accusations, and against a family who see their relative's death as their personal cash-cow. By issuing a statement saying that, "He (Duncan) was treated the way any other patient would have been treated, regardless of nationality or ability to pay for care...we have a long history of treating a multi-cultural community in this area," that should have ended this blame game once and for all, but in today's America where reverse racism is allowed to run rampant and unchecked...our taxpayer dollars will now be wasted on a federal and state investigation into Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas for initially turning Duncan away and failing to screen for Ebola. Failing to screen for Ebola when Jackson and Price claim he was experiencing Ebola-like symptoms.

What I'd like to know is when did these two miscreants get their MD degrees for I hate to tell them but the symptoms Duncan presented with the first time are also the symptoms of a simple case of the flu. But then again if they left doctoring up to the doctors they wouldn't make any money off the Obama orchestrated media perpetrated lie that Ebola is now amongst us...and 'We the People' wouldn't yet again be distracted away from the truly important issues of the day.
