Huber Heights's rulers estimate $250,000 profit from music center boondoggle in 2015. That would be just over 1 percent profit. If this is accurate, it's a terrible investment. But it's not accurate. It's an overestimate.

California Highway Patrol cop caught stealing nude picture from victim's cell phone and passing it to peers admits this is a common game cops engage in.
"An East Bay California Highway Patrol officer accused of stealing nude photos of a DUI suspect is speaking out, claiming that officers have stolen images for years.
Officer Sean Harrington of Martinez reportedly confessed to stealing explicit photos from the suspect’s phone, and said he forwarded those images to at least two other CHP officers.
According to court documents obtained by the Contra Costa Times, Harrington told investigators this kind of image stealing has been going on for years in the state law enforcement agency, stretching all the way from Los Angeles to his own Dublin station."
He's in big trouble not for stealing the picture and passing it on, but for telling the truth.

At the request of the NFL, NCAA and other major sports leagues, a judge blocked sports gambling in New Jersey.
"After a week of rapid-fire legal filings, Judge Michael Shipp ruled the sports leagues would suffer irreparable harm if thoroughbred track Monmouth Park began accepting sports bets Sunday as planned."
How?
"Before it's over, the Department of Justice also could weigh in. For now, though, the NCAA, NFL, NBA, NHL and MLB have stopped bettors from legally wagering on their games in New Jersey."
Why? What do they gain? It seems to me, the more people who bet on sports, the better for the leagues.
"Monmouth Park has spent the last month and a half preparing to turn its sport bar and restaurant into a sportsbook. It has hired employees and formed an independent regulation committee, the Independent Sports Association.
The park was expecting thousands of bettors to attend Sunday."
The ruling unequivocally harmed those guys.

This is ridiculous. First, why would you take the IRS's word for it? It lied about it for years. Second, for every wrong there is a remedy. Naturally the judge protected his fellow crooks. Analysis.
"Judge Reggie Walton of the U.S. District Court of the District of Columbia dismissed almost all counts brought against the tax-collecting agency in two cases, ruling that both were essentially moot now that the IRS granted the groups their tax-exempt status that had been held up for years.Walton, a President George W.

Concern current Ebola outbreak came from an accident at a US bioweapons lab in that part of Africa.
"Prompted by controversy over dangerous research and recent laboratory accidents, the White House announced Friday that it would temporarily halt all new funding for experiments that seek to study certain infectious agents by making them more dangerous."
Hooray for Obama, but why stop at new funding?
"Dr. Boyle wrote the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989, the American implementing legislation for the 1972 Biological Weapons Convention.
Dr. Boyle served on the Board of Directors of Amnesty International (1988-1992), and is a professor of international law at the University of Illinois, Champaign.
WASHINGTON’S BLOG: You said recently that laboratories in West Africa run by the Centers for Disease Control and Tulane University are doing bioweapons research.  What documentary evidence do you have of that?
You mentioned that a map produced by the CDC shows where the laboratories are located on the West Coast of Africa?
DR. FRANCIS BOYLE:  Yes. They’ve got one in Monrovia [the capital of Ebola-stricken Liberia] … one in Kenema, Sierra Leone [the third largest city in the Ebola-hotzone nation], which was shut down this summer because the government there believed that it was the Tulane vaccines which had set this whole thing off.
And then they have another one in Guinea, where the first case [of Ebola] was reported.
All of these are labs which do this offensive/defensive biowarfare work.
And Fort Detrick’s USAMRIID [the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute for Infectious Diseases] has also been over there. So it’s clear what’s been going on there.
CDC has a long history of doing biowarfare work. I have them doing biowarfare work for the Pentagon in Sierra Leone as early 1988."
That's not documentation.
"WASHINGTON’S BLOG:   And how do you know that? Have you seen official documents?

DR. FRANCIS BOYLE:  An official government document: the Biological Defense Research Program, May 1988.  I analyzed it in my book, Biowarfare and Terrorism.
It’s clear that [the U.S. bioweapons researchers] were using Liberia to try to circumvent the Biological Weapons Convention.  And CDC – for years – has been up to its eyeballs in biowarfare work.
They always try to justify the development of offensive biological weapons by claiming it’s being done for “defensive” purposes.  That’s just a lie … and it’s always been a lie.
It’s been the case on Ebola and just about every other biowarfare agent you can think of."
That's why we hear about doctors making deadly diseases deadlier.
"WASHINGTON’S BLOG:  And Obama recently said – as quoted in the New York Times article – that he’s “curtailing” this type of defensive research, or putting it on hold.
Do you believe him?

DR. FRANCIS BOYLE:  That’s the smoking gun, right there. Read that article [the New York Times article quoted above, which notes "a sudden change of heart by the Obama administration" about labs creating ever-deadlier versions of germs which are already lethal]. 
The reason they’ve stopped it is to cover themselves, I think, because they know that this type of work was behind the outbreak of the [Ebola] pandemic in West Africa.
But that’s an admission right there, de facto."
Sounds like it.
"Dr. Boyle made it clear that he is not suggesting – as some others are – that Ebola was intentionally released into the African population. He says he has seen no evidence of intentional release.  He’s speaking about an accidental release of germs from a biowarfare research lab.
He’s convinced, in fact, that this Ebola epidemic in Africa started with the release from a U.S. bioweapons lab in West Africa.   One of the reasons for his conviction that the outbreak started with the release from a bioweapon lab is that this Ebola strain seems to be much worse than those previously seen in the wild."
Maybe someday we'll find out for sure.

US refused to promise it wouldn't weaponize Ebola.
"The United States has withheld assurances from Germany that the Ebola virus – among other related diseases – would not be weaponized in the event of Germany exporting it to the US Army Medical Research Institute for Infectious Diseases."

Federal Reserve

If QE really comes to an end, stock market bears do need to watch out, but I'm not sure it will end.
"The Federal Reserve’s latest asset purchase program, QE3, is coming to an end. What was once an $85 billion a month program, one in which at its peak had been goosing the financial markets and economy at an annual rate of $1.0 trillion – and over its 27 month life will have pumped $1.7 trillion of money into the economy – is going to zero. Given the outsized impact QE has had on the growth of U.S. money supply and thus the U.S. economy, we say investors take note, especially those furthest out on the risk curve, because what was once your primary tailwind could soon become your greatest headwind, maybe even a gale force."
But is it really going to end?
"Now you know why we call this current monetary cycle the Bernanke Risk-On Boom – Bust-to-Be! Unlike in past monetary cycles where money was largely injected into the real economy via bank asset purchases and loans, this inflation cycle is all about huge swathes of money being injected directly into the financial markets via Federal Reserve’s QE asset purchase programs. The banking system, at least to this point, has had a minor role." 
But will Yellen really end it? So Greenspan created the boom then quit, leaving Bernanke to deal with the bust. The Bernanke ignited the next boom then quit, leaving Yellen to deal with the bust. Talk about passing the buck.

The Fed absolutely manipulates the stock market.
"“They are definitely in the market-manipulation business, and nothing has changed,” said James Bianco, president of Bianco Research LLC in Chicago and a longtime student, and critic, of the Fed.
Called the “Greenspan/Bernanke put,” the Fed’s willingness to jump in when stocks fall dates back a quarter-century.
“The put option is back. If the market sells off enough, they will give us QE4,” Bianco told me."
At some point, printing money won't work, but I Yellen will probably keep printing until that point is reached.

Government is buying all the Ebola protective gear, keeping it away from the people.

Ebola strain claimed to have been created in US bioweapons lab. This could explain the military involvement.
"University of Illinois law professor Francis Boyle, an expert of the perfidies of the US government, reminds us that Sierra Leone and Liberia, the countries most affected by the ebola outbreak, are two West African countries that host US biological warfare laboratories. Professor Boyle asks how the disease, which is mainly associated with equatorial Congo reached West Africa thousands of kilometers away.
Washington’s response is itself peculiar. The Obama regime sent 4,000 US soldiers to West Africa to fight ebola. Soldiers don’t have training or equipment with which to combat ebola. Why expose 4,000 Americans to an epidemic? This seemingly pointless decision has raised suspicions that Washington is exposing troops to ebola so that vaccines or treatments can be tested on the troops."
It is bizarre.
"As one commentator observed, the CDC’s response to ebola is too stupid for stupid.
The CDC’s protocol is based on assumptions about ebola that do not seem to be true for the current strain. A nurse, who treated the ebola patient in Dallas who died, was given the green light to fly commercially even though she reported to CDC that she had symptoms. She exposed 132 passengers on the flight, and these passengers have since been in contact with thousands of other people. The Daily Mail has published photographs of an American with a clipboard and without protective suiting boarding the nurse on a private airplane on way to hospital quarantine."
Stupider than stupid. This could explain why this strain of Ebola is the worst ever.

More on claim Ebola outbreak was caused by US tests on Africans. Parallels US tests on Guatamalans.

Theory Ebola crisis was manufactured to advance one-world-government agenda by globalizing the health care system. This makes sense.
"Over the past hundred years, no force has been more powerful in shaping modern medicine than the Rockefeller empire.
In his 2003 Memoirs, David Rockefeller wrote: “Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure—one world, if you will. If that is the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”
Rockefeller is acutely aware that one of the prime strategies for bringing his dream (nightmare) to fruition is: a one-world, all-embracing medical apparatus."

US used Social Security payments to bribe suspected Nazi war criminals to leave the country, paying out millions to suspects.

Ohio suspends hundreds of businesses a year for not paying sales taxes. Abolish them and this problem will go away, and our economy will improve.

Immigration

Obama preparing to request millions of work permits for immigrants. If he knows where they are to give them work permits, he knows where they are to send them home.
"Unnoticed until now, a draft solicitation for bids issued by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Oct. 6 says potential vendors must be capable of handling a “surge” scenario of 9 million id cards in one year “to support possible future immigration reform initiative requirements.”"
This is only a proposal. I think this is phony, leaked to get support for the election.

Politics

People leave campaign event while Obama speaks.

Socialism

National service is slavery.

Local

Dayton says expect slushy roads because of salt shortage.

60 police dispatched to break up huge brawl at Central State but only three students were arrested and only for misdemeanors.

Global Warming and Energy

Poland vows to veto a suicidal EU mandate to cut CO2 emissions by 40 percent. Smart.

Communists pretending to be environmentalists don't want clean-burning natural gas because it will boost the economy. These real goal of these people is to destroy capitalism. The global warming fraud and the attack on CO2 is merely a means to that end.

War

South Korean troops fire on North Korean troops at border, starting an exchange of gunfire.

US, EU and UN aid being sent to ISIS.

Russia targets McDonald's for harassment in response to western sanctions.

Health Care

Pentagon announces domestic Ebola SWAT team. In what world does this make sense?

US troops won't receive full hazmat suits for dealing with Ebola patients in Africa. Considering the protocols just changed, this sounds intended to infect some.

Now that Obama has brought Ebola into the US and caused a crisis, he's being heralded for taking action against it. What a travesty.

Obama to ask for and obtain more funds to fight Ebola.

US has long had an Ebola czar.

After loudly accusing Dallas nurses for not following protocol, CDC quietly changes protocol nurses followed. This is evil, not stupid.

Ebola response still needs improvement. It wouldn't if Obama hadn't brought it here.

Ebola susceptibility linked to malnutrition, selenium and vitamin C deficiency.

Plenty of vitamins C, A and D along with iodine and salt are necessary to fight infections.

Drinking soda linked to premature aging, disease and early death. I wonder why it took so long to produce a study like this.

Regulation

BBC to post links removed by Google because of stupid right to be forgotten regulation. Everybody should do that to erase that stupid regulation.
