A return of once erradicated diseases is our own fault

Once arradicated diseases are making a comeback because of illegal immigration.,8599,1712255,00.html Like no other disease, plague evokes terror. One of the most lethal illnesses in human history, it killed probably a third of Europe's population in the 14th century.Yet the plague is not just a disease of the distant past. While cases tapered off in the mid-20th century, the World Health Organization (WHO) now classifies plague as "re-emerging.

 Deaths from measles outbreak may be 'inevitable' as cases surge in US:Authorities say 129 cases in 13 states were reported by mid-April, the bulk of them in California and New York City. Most were triggered by travellers who caught the virus abroad and spread it in the United States among unvaccinated people.

 Many of the travellers had been to the Philippines, where a recent measles epidemic has caused at least 20,000 illnesses.The U.S. numbers remain relatively tiny, but officials are worried to see case counts growing.Since 2000, the highly contagious disease has been considered eliminated in the United States, aside from occasional small outbreaks sparked by overseas travellers. 

Many are now refusing the shot that can save then from measles but that is not the biggest problem.

 I read a report once concerned about the return of deadly disease around the world with our increased migration and was reminded that this was an issue almost 10 years ago when illegal immigration was running rampant. Illegal aliens cross America's borders medically unexamined. We shrug. We do not know what Illegal Aliens carry in their backpacks. We do not know what they carry in their bodies.

Long ago we knew what legal immigrants brought with them. When my grandpa came to America, he kissed the ground of New York's Ellis Island, then he stripped naked and coughed hard. Every legal immigrant before 1924 was examined for infectious diseases upon arrival and tested for tuberculosis. Anyone infected was shipped back to the old country. That was powerful incentive for each newcomer to make heroic efforts to appear healthy.

Today, legal immigrants must demonstrate that they are free of communicable diseases and drug addiction to qualify for lawful permanent residency green cards.

But Illegal Aliens stop at no medical checkpoint. Whoever walks through our foolishly open Golden Door comes in healthy or sick. If a border patrol sentry catches a healthy Illegal Alien he might be sent back home immediately. However, if we catch and detain a sick Illegal Alien, who after examination by physicians in a detention center proves to have a serious disease, we keep him!

Compassion makes us fear that his home country has neither adequate medical resources nor modern wonder drugs. So we release sick Illegal Aliens to the American streets, to infect others if their diseases are contagious, or we place them in our Medicaid program where we pay for their expensive treatments.

Medical generosity encourages clever Illegal Aliens to exploit free medical care. Horrendous diseases that long ago America had conquered are re-surging. Horrific diseases common in Third World poverty and medical ignorance suddenly are appearing in American emergency rooms and medical offices.

Along with the visible invasion of Illegal Aliens across our borders is an invisible invasion of deadly diseases. with the care that EMTALA, the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act, provides, it has been noticed that there is a resurgence of horrendous diseases that long ago America had conquered are re-surging.

Horrific diseases common in Third World poverty and medical ignorance suddenly are appearing in American emergency rooms and medical offices. Along with the visible invasion of Illegal Aliens across our borders is an invisible invasion of deadly diseases. Many illegal's who skulk across our borders have tuberculosis (TB). That disease had disappeared from America.TB's swift, deadly return now is lethal for about 60% of those infected. The culprit is the new Multi-Drug Resistant Tuberculosis (MDR-TB) Until recently MDR-TB was endemic to Mexico.

MDR-TB takes 24 months with many expensive drugs with toxic side effects (that cost around $250,000). Each Illegal Alien with MDR-TB coughs and infects numerous people who will not show symptoms immediately. Latent disease explodes later, like a time bomb. this TB strain has since 2002 gone up 17% in Virginia, skyrocketed 188% in Washington D.C., and up 81% in Queens, NY etc.

It has been traced to illegal aliens from Mexico, Philippines, Viet Nam, and other South American countries. This affects schoolteachers, children, law enforcement etc, who are sometimes purposely infected by illegal's who cough in their faces. Recently TB erupted in Portland, ME and Del Ray Beach, FL

This is just the beginning and only one once eradicated disease. Chagas disease a horrible disease from Latin America infects 15 million per year there and kills 50,000. This is a horrible death, please look at the link.

Leprosy once almost non existent in America in now is now endemic to northeastern states. There are now leprosy clinics in New York City. Illegal Aliens and other immigrants brought leprosy from India, Brazil, the Caribbean, and Mexico.

Dengue fever is being brought in by illegal's from Ecuador, Peru, Viet Nam, Thailand, Bangladesh, Malaysia, and Mexico.
Once eradicated Polio, is back in America brought in the bodies of illegal's. Hepatitis A, B, and C are re-surging. deadly Marburg disease and hemorrhagic Ebola are just two more.

* Where is the concern? I have not heard this even mentioned by anyone on either side of the debate or by any politicians. Why? The issue and the answer is political judgment not medical judgment.

Our Plans for Redrawing the Middle East: "The Project for a “New Middle East”

Analysis: Ground shifts as new Middle East order takes shape

The new Middle East map: We set all this in motion

As usual when I set out to research a story it ends up going in a totally different direction. This is no exception. As you know, Bush used 9/11 to ignore Afghanistan and attack Iraq to help Israel establish a buffer zone and their idea of a new middle east order. We have illustrated that numerous times with the official Government Perle Wurmser Report. However, I ran into something that got by me in 2006. Iran is not going to sit for this and I hate to say it but they are right to take us on.

Obvious plan aside what the idiot did not think of when they attacked Iraq was that they freed up Iran to instigate for their version of new Middle East order. As you know I have said it too many times but it will end up in total disorder and a total Middle East breakdown and we are watching it. If we are lucky we will avoid WW3 because China, the US, and Russia know what that would mean to each other and the future of the world.

Anyway before Bush went after Iraq he had designs on Syria, Lebanon, Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt when all is said and done. We are all observing age old hatreds play out and Sunni against Shiite, Persian against Arab hate is only serving to make a already volatile region and situation worse.

The Perle-Wurmser policy document demanded: 1) Destroy Yasser Arafat and the Palestinian Authority, blaming them for every act of Palestinian terrorism, including the attacks from Hamas, an organization which Sharon had helped launch during his early 1980s tenure as Minister of Defense. 2) Induce the United States to overthrow the Saddam Hussein regime in Iraq. 3) Launch war against Syria after Saddam's regime is disposed of, including striking Syrian military targets in Lebanon, and targets in Syria proper. 4) Parlay the overthrow of the Ba'athist regimes in Baghdad and Damascus into the "democratization" of the entire Arab world", including through further military actions against Iran, Saudi Arabia, and "the ultimate prize," Egypt. a clean break

That plan was formulated in 1996 before they found a fool to push it through in 2003. I knew about that but did not know about this. The term “New Middle East” was introduced to the world in June 2006 in Tel Aviv by U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. She is credited with coining the phrase. I am disturbed with the role she played because she sat on chevron's board before she became Secretary of State to push Bush's plan through. We have discussed that and her and Cheney's role in energy and Afghanistan in the past and will again but for now:

The “New Middle East” project was introduced publicly by Washington and Tel Aviv with the expectation that Lebanon would be the pressure point for realigning the whole Middle East and thereby unleashing the forces of “constructive chaos.” This “constructive chaos” –which generates conditions of violence and warfare throughout the region– would in turn be used so that the United States, Britain, and Israel could redraw the map of the Middle East in accordance with their geo-strategic needs and objectives

She described Israel's attack on Lebanon as birth pains in establishing the new Middle East and was rightly criticized for it. As Bush did when he described the attack on Iraq as a crusade before recanting his truth, the truth was often spoken accidentally and denied. The “New Middle East” project was introduced publicly by Washington and Tel Aviv with the expectation that Lebanon would be the pressure point for realigning the whole Middle East and thereby unleashing the forces of “constructive chaos.

” This “constructive chaos” –which generates conditions of violence and warfare throughout the region– would in turn be used so that the United States, Britain, and Israel could redraw the map of the Middle East in accordance with their geo-strategic needs and objectives. This supposedly new map was prepared by retired Lieutenant-Colonel Ralph Peters. Plans for Redrawing the Middle East: The Project for a “New Middle East”

He use to appear on Fox a lot but I have not heard from him of late. Anyway the map is the one pictured but there is no way it is going to happen. Bush freed Iran up to pursue her version of a new Middle East order. This most definitely will be war, a total middle east breakdown at the very least

Finding those plans for a new Middle East map now makes sense of Iran's belligerence and drive for nuclear power and advanced weapons to take us on.

This is only going to end in war period but how constrained is the only question!

Republicans be gone!



The dangers of republicans to the United States and the world!

You see the dire danger of trump and Republicans but trump is following what was prepared by trump and then GW Bush.

Bush's entire Presidency was marked not only with war and taking care of the rich but by ending FDR's legacy. Remember his drive to reduce unfunded liabilities i.e. social security, Medicaid, and Medicare? Can you imagine the crisis if he was allowed to let social security be privatized as Republicans want to? When the full scope of this financial collapse is realized average Americans would be screwed and there would be a Revolution.

I always said Bush or those behind him learned their lessons well and anything they touched would be much worse than a like event in History. During the Depression when Roosevelt was trying to rebuild America we knew it happened on the Republican's watch and who to blame. They also knew and wanted to help fix it not make it worse as Republicans are doing today.

Anyway think back and you will see that everything was done on purpose and especially the timing was no coincidence. Bush and Greenspan kept the collapse off until he was out of office. People say get over it! Move on! However we will never get over it or be able to forget Bush as much as we want as his damage will affect our and the worlds lives forever. No I am not giving that bunch too much credit.

They shaped our future and the future of the whole world like it or not! Get over it, not hardly! The debt clock had to be started during Reagan's time because of his success but could only register 9 trillion. Because of Bush's so called success it had to be altered to register 10 trillion. Now the debt is moving so fast it is going virile. How far off can bankruptcy be especially knowing how bad it really is? To top it off there is a drive since Bush to reduce unfunded liabilities, the needy!

The "Unfunded Liabilities" Ruse: The bandwagon both sides are jumping on while people continue to lose their houses and jobs and it will to no surprise get worse. Under Bush the mainstream media had been parroting claims that the federal government, particularly the Social Security and Medicare programs, have dozens of trillions of dollars in "unfunded liabilities."

For example, USA Today ran a long feature in early October 2004 that proclaimed that "the long-term economic health of the United States is threatened by $53 trillion in government debts and liabilities that start to come due in four years." Many other articles, news reports, and commentary have included comparable numbers that make the fiscal future look not just frightening but entirely unmanageable. Just put Bush's trillions in there and have a real hemorrhage.

These claims appear aimed at scaring us into making radical changes in our social insurance system for old people. But whatever the motivation, how scared should we be? What is true and what is phony about the alarms that fiscal disaster is looming just ahead? It is a frightening thought, discontinuing social security or even cutting social security, Medicaid, and Medicare. It is all millions have.

I remember Romney when stumping for McCain saying it should be discontinued and the countries big enemy was the Democrats and their effort to take care of the elderly and the needy. Bush spent years cutting "unfunded liabilities" and trying to wipe out President Roosevelt's legacy. If the Republican's get back in they will do just that.Social Security turns 75, but will it see 75 more? Not if the Republicans have anything to say about it!

All Democrats and all independents better make sure they come out in 2012 to get President Obama reelected, our future depends on it. If Republicans get back in the White House they are going to finish off average Americans and Bush's mis-agenda of destruction. Now add Bernanke starting to get it but still does not realize this financial and job disaster is another Bush created mess that is barely starting. Bernanke says between the economic peak and the end of last year, 8.5 million jobs in America were lost with only 1 million jobs being regained since then. He says it could take 4 to 5 years for the U.S. to get back to a "more normal unemployment rate of 5% or 6%".

We are in trouble!

The political system was designed to take the election out of our hands

The political system was designed to take the election out of our hands because we were not trusted to pick our own leaders

First I must admit that because of Bush I have found myself forced to learn about the political process from the ground up under duress. Most of what I have found is very distasteful. The Political system does not favor us the voter but is designed to clandestinely take the voting process out of our hands. We have been determined not to be trusted with picking our own leaders!

** Here's their story, in short: A few decades ago, Democratic leaders felt that sometimes, Democratic voters were choosing poor presidential candidates: campaigners who couldn't win elections, or even if they could, they didn't please Democratic kingmakers.

Jimmy Carter, for example, was an obscure candidate who developed so much popular appeal that he essentially forced Democratic Party leaders to accept him as the nominee, even though not everyone was thrilled by it. See?

So the party changed the rules for picking its nominee. They made the super delegates: a super class of super Democrats, each of whom could vote at the convention for a candidate of choice -- in effect, giving each of these Democrats the power of tens of thousands of average citizens.

Who are they? Democratic members of Congress, governors, big-shot party members: Bill Clinton, for example. The theory was that the super delegates could help steer the party toward solid, competitive candidates, and away from Monday morning regrets.

There are about 800 of them, and that's a lot when you can win the nomination with only about 2,000 delegates. Hence the controversy. Even though one nominee is winning more delegates in actual primaries and caucuses, Another is substantially ahead of him in the overall delegate count because many more super delegates say they will vote for that individual. Maybe that shouldn't matter.

The Democratic nominee is not selected by a sea of Americans voters, but instead is anointed by party leaders. Super delegates can change their minds. What happened to we the people choosing, picking, and electing our leaders? Any way you look at it we aren't.

** We have got to get involved, change the system, take it Back the right to pick and elect our own leaders!

It is time to replace Capitalism with Democracy!

I am afraid it is too late. If we have not already screwed ourselves we better replace this corporatocracy with Democracy! We are screwed primarily because of Bush and Cheney's deregulation and Obama isn't acting quick enough.. The entire world should be concerned about this because it is going to screw the world. Frigging American corporatocracy! Capitalism run amok!

For years because of Bush's fascist agenda many of us said this is not a Democracy. A Democracy only in name to facilitate a hidden agenda. Now we hear from Republicans that this is no longer a Democracy because of Obama and the socialist agenda he inherited from Bush. Anyway you look at it this is not a Democracy!

Is it supposed to be a Democracy just because they make you leave your pen once every couple of years to go out and vote for those with the money to buy their position to force the agenda that keeps those corporations in control that really run this country? Is it Democracy that allows the top 1% to own more than the bottom 95% combined?

Would a Democracy allow their fellow citizens to go without the basic needs of any human being let alone right here in the USA, Food Shelter and clothing?  This is a Democracy in action? Is the health insurance Industry spending 1.5 million dollars a day to control Congress and kill health care reform so they can keep control over you Democracy in action?

No! It is capitalism run amok, Capitalism is controlling our Democracy. This is not a Democracy. Democracy is a system of government in which either the actual governing is carried out by the people governed or the power to do so is granted by them. There are two principles that any definition of democracy includes, equality and freedom. Would not equality dictate that the top 1% take care of those who are in trouble? Or is it because Capitalism rules Democracy that they have the "freedom" to ignore Equality and Democracy? Democracy

Capitalism as a system developed incrementally from the 16th century in Europe. Capitalism typically refers to an economic and social system in which the means of production are privately controlled. Controlling it is is a matter of politics and policy. Capitalism

Politics and Democracy are supposed to be controlling Capitalism. Capitalism is not supposed to be controlling Democracy! Capitalism has run amok and as you know is controlling Democracy. Our Government just bailed out Capitalism and there was nothing Democratic about it. Capitalism owns our Democracy and our Government.We the people have been left to our own demise. It is time to control Capitalism with Democracy so for once we are all equal!

It really bothers me that it seems whenever I delve into something it is always capitalism behind the problem. We keep hearing the virtues of Capitalism but our own problems and I am seeing around the world are caused by Capitalism run Amok. The great system of Capitalism is destroying our world. We have got to rein it in and control it. I was concerned with Bush's warmongering and the world marshaling forces to take him on. I was concerned about Israel instigating war too thinking they were the world’s primary problem.  I thought they were controlling the US and we were going to end up destroying the world at their bid.

* We are so brainwashed, we never hear or see the truth. I noticed behind every frigging conflict including Gaza and Georgia, Syria, the middle east, Gaza, and Afghanistan was oil and other energy sources so I just took the normal course of blaming all our problems on oil and other energy sources as the world postured to move into the future. Stupid me! In regard to our problems here I keep saying we see the enemy and he is us but son of a gun it is! We are the problem of the entire world. Capitalism! It is out of control and will destroy the world unless we rein it in. What say you!
