ISIS CLAIMS DIRECT ROCKET HIT ON US EMBASSY IN

On Tuesday the Islamist militant group took credit for a mortar attack against the embassy in Baghdad. The group bragged about the attack on social media, claiming that there were likely casualties.

“Four rockets strike Green Zone in #Baghdad; helicopters hovering over the Green Zone; ambulances heading that way after strikes!!” one ISIS militant noted on Twitter. Just one day before the alleged attack, retired Lt. Col. Oliver North claimed that sources in Iraq believed ISIS was planning a “major attack” against the embassy in Baghdad.

“They know Baghdad. They’ve lived in Baghdad,” North said of the militants reportedly planning the attack.

“They are at the gates of Baghdad. They’re coming for us,” he added.

See How Obama’s Islamic State Strategy Is Falling Apart In Three Minutes

President Obama announced a campaign to “degrade and ultimately destroy” the Islamic State on September 10 and has since been adamant he would not order American boots on the ground to achieve that end.

With the Islamic State looming on the outskirts of Baghdad, it is worth revisiting how this strategy “collides with reality,” as Commentary‘s Peter Wehner laid out here. First, leading military experts met Obama’s strategy with contempt and doubt.

“I don’t think the president’s plan has a snowball’s chance in hell of succeeding,” retired Marine Gen. James Conway said.

At Least 28 Nations Issue Travel Restrictions for Ebola Outbreak Countries

Notable is the fact that despite the US being an ocean apart from Africa,both the US and Western Europe, have suffered more cases of Ebola than the majority of other non-outbreak African nations….

The Washington Times

More than two dozen countries in Africa, the Caribbean and elsewhere have instituted Ebola-related travel bans, but public health officials continued to insist Sunday that entry restrictions would do little to help prevent an outbreak on U.S. soil.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, maintained that a travel ban would have “downsides” as he made the rounds on the Sunday talk shows.

“The strongest argument against it is that when people are coming into the country, you know exactly [and] you can track them,” Dr. Fauci said on Fox News Sunday. “If you say, ‘Nobody comes in from Sierra Leone, Liberia or Guinea,’ there are so many other ways to get into the country. You can go to one of the other countries and then get back in. So when they come in from a place where you know you can track them, you know [where they are].”

Rep. Tim Murphy, the Pennsylvania Republican who helped lead an oversight hearing Thursday on the Ebola outbreak, argued that a travel restriction was needed to “protect and defend the people of the United States.”

“The president has sealed off Israel in the past. We’ve sealed off other areas temporarily. We can have travel restrictions until we get the rest right, and the rest is not right,” Mr. Murphy said on Fox News Sunday. “Assumptions that they have — for example, that it will lead to the collapse of the economy in Africa — I don’t agree with.”

The International SOS website reports that 28 countries have implemented entry restrictions on those with visas from Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone — and, in some cases, Nigeria.

Most of the travel bans are within Africa, but other countries with restrictions include several Caribbean nations, including Jamaica, as well as Belize and Guyana….
The Ivory Coast has closed its land borders but recently lifted its prohibition on passenger flights from Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, according to International SOS.

Dr. Michael Osterholm of the University of Minnesota School of Public Health said a travel ban would “seriously impact our ability to get people in and out of that area.”

“If you’re prepared today to give us hundreds of military planes that will fly in and out at will when we need them to move not only material but people, then I’ll say, ‘Maybe we ought to reconsider this,’” said Dr. Osterholm. “But I don’t see anyone in Congress telling us today that we’re going to get hundreds of military planes.”

Mr. Murphy, a member of the Republican Doctors Caucus, said he and other lawmakers have urged the Obama administration to provide Congress with an authorization request for any additional support.

“I’ve already asked Dr. [Tom] Frieden, and I’ve sent a letter to President Obama saying, ‘Tell us what Congress needs to authorize.’ We’re sending thousands of troops over there through ships [and] planes,” Mr. Murphy said. “We could do a lot here. The ability of the U.S. military to move goods and supplies is pretty massive. We all want to stop Ebola in Africa, but we also don’t want it to come here.”

A number of lawmakers have called for a halt on travel from those coming from Ebola-plagued West African nations, but Mr. Obama said Saturday that such a ban “could actually make the situation worse.”

MORE DIRTY DEMS -Voting Machine in Chicago Hardwired to Vote Democrat

voting_machineA Republican candidate in Chicago, Jim Moynihan, tried to vote for himself in early elections and was surprised to find that the voting machine registered a vote for his opponent, a Democrat:

While using a touch screen voting machine in Schaumburg, Moynihan voted for several races on the ballot, only to find that whenever he voted for a Republican candidate, the machine registered the vote for a Democrat in the same race. He notified the election judge at his polling place and demonstrated that it continued to cast a vote for the opposing candidate’s party. Moynihan was eventually allowed to vote for Republican candidates, including his own race.

This is probably an isolated error, right? There’s just no way that this was an intentional rigging of the election. Right. As the midterm elections heat up, with Republicans slated to win a vast majority of seats in Congress, it seems that Democrats are doing whatever it takes to win. Honestly, this is just par for the course. Voting machine tampering has become more of an issue over the years, and there is good reason to believe voting machines aren’t accurately tallying votes.

Of course, this issue has been widely reported on when it comes to Democrat votes being switched to Republican. The documentary Hacking Democracy showed how easily Diebold voting machines could be hacked. Of course, the film-makers pointed to a vast right-wing conspiracy to change votes and steal elections. But it has been less widely publicized when a voting machine turns left. When a voting machine votes Democrat, it’s a computer glitch or a hardware error. If it turns Republican, it’s the center of some Republican conspiracy.

How about this, though? It’s likely that machines go both ways. It’s very likely that both parties has people within them that are willing to do whatever it takes, even cheating the system, to get their own people elected. And if it is the case that a voting machine could easily be tampered with, perhaps we should just return to paper ballots and a bipartisan counting committee which has to agree on numbers before they are released. Otherwise, we’ll never really know.

An important quote, often attributed to Joseph Stalin, applies here, “I consider it completely unimportant who in the party will vote, or how; but what is extraordinarily important is this—who will count the votes, and how.” Indeed.
