  • Potentially Deadly ‘Kissing Bug’ Spreads to More Than Half of US, Including California

    11/25/2015 11:29:14 AM PST · by BenLurkin · 68 replies
    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says a potentially deadly insect known as the "kissing bug" has made its way into every southern state, impacting more than half of the United States. There have been reports of it in California as well, according to CDC, which noted four of the 11 different species of the bug -- also known as triatomines -- have been spotted in the state. The bug typically feeds on the blood of mammals, including humans and pets, biting them in the lip area. If the bug is infected with parasites and defecates in the wound,...

    KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, Nov. 21 (UPI) -- President Obama vowed Saturday to keep United States borders open to refugees "as long as I'm president" as he visited a Malaysian humanitarian center and met migrant children, many of whom escaped violence in homelands that include Myanmar, Pakistan and Syria. Obama, in Malaysia for the 3rd ASEAN-U.S. Summit, chatted with young children at the Dignity for Children Foundation in Kuala Lumpur, asking them what they want to be when they grow up and observing their drawings. At the same time, lawmakers in Washington, D.C., on both sides of the aisle continue to...

    wiki ^ | Excerpted from wiki
    Abu Dharr al-Ghifari, a Companion of Prophet Muhammad, is credited by many as a principal antecedent of Islamic socialism.[1][2][3][4][5] He protested against the accumulation of wealth by the ruling class during 'Uthman's caliphate and urged the equitable redistribution of wealth. The first Muslim Caliph Abu Bakr introduced a guaranteed minimum standard of income, granting each man, woman, and child ten dirhams annually; this was later increased to twenty dirhams.[6] The first experimental Islamic commune was established during the Russian Revolution of 1917 as part of the Waisi movement, an early supporter of the Soviet government. The Muslim Socialist Committee of...

Paul Ryan (R-WI) that he would in any way try to curb the nation’s importation of Muslims on visas. By the end of the year, Congress will have to pass a government funding measure to appropriate funds for all federal operations. The Boehner-Obama debt deal, backed by Ryan, established the spending levels— but Congress still has to pass the actual spending bills which contain the money. Included in this package will be funding for...

    In the wake of the deadly Paris attacks by ISIS, some GOP presidential candidates such as Ted Cruz, Donald Trump and even Marco Rubio are calling for an end to Syrian refugee resettlement in the U.S. Most of the others have been silent or vague on the issue of Syrian refugees - about 2,000 of whom have already arrived in the U.S. despite warnings from the FBI that it’s impossible to vet their backgrounds. But there is one candidate who is clearly on the record wanting more Syrian Muslims to pour into American cities and towns as "refugees," despite the...

    Fox News reports that jihadi web sites are rejoicing over today’s terrorist attacks in Paris. The line we have heard more than once from ISIS-related sites is, “The American blood is best, and we will taste it soon.” The French are tougher than many realize, but they are not the primary targets of Muslim extremists. This morning, in a burst of bad timing, Barack Obama said on ABC that ISIS is “contained.” Far from being contained, ISIS is on a roll, from the Sinai, where they apparently brought down an airplane full of Russian tourists, to Paris, France. No one...

    ... Although Trump glibly describes "Operation Wetback" as moving undocumented immigrants "waaay south," this program was at best inhumane and at worst horrific. Back then, the government rounded up suspected undocumented immigrants and sent them deep into the Mexican interior, where they were abandoned with next to nothing. The transports across the border were reportedly "indescribable scenes of human misery and tragedy." In one instance, 88 deportees died from heat stroke in the desert. Other deportees were sent to the Mexican Gulf Coast by ship, in vessels described by historians as an "eighteenth century slave ship" or "penal hell ship."...

Jon Feere of the Center for Immigration Studies told host and Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K.

    Marco Rubio's use of a Republican Party of Florida American Express card is only part of the story. Over the course of his rise in politics, the Tampa Bay Times and partner Miami Herald chronicled his background and controversies. The most detailed accounting of Rubio's AmEx charges is this report from February 2010 that showed how the card was used for groceries, repairs to the family minivan and at a music equipment store. "I was as diligent as possible to ensure the party did not pay for items that were unrelated to party business," Rubio said in a written statement...

    The race for endorsements among Republican presidential candidates has been a slow one since we began keeping track of the endorsement primary earlier this year. Jeb Bush has sat atop our leaderboard, but many of his endorsements came before he officially announced his candidacy, and he's received only three since Labor Day -- all from House members. But this week, Marco Rubio has shown signs of momentum, picking up endorsements from three fellow senators, including one today from Sen. James E. Risch of Idaho. In contrast to Bush's 3 endorsement points since Labor Day, Rubio has received 22 -- by...

    Last week something really surprising happened. Dr. Ben Carson, the Neurosurgeon turned GOP presidential candidate, overtook Donald Trump in a CBS News poll by a margin of 26 percent to 22 percent. Not so surprising, is that Dr. Carson as the new frontrunner, has come under much more scrutiny and criticism than ever before. I particularly liked the comments by several bloggers who compared Carson to Chance the Gardener, a pitifully naive character played by Peter Sellers in the 1979 film, “Being There”. Suddenly “Being There” has become relevant again, especially to those of us who have taken time to...

    It's been a morning of mixed messages for Republican Presidential contender Donald Trump, who learned that retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson has taken the lead from him in a major national poll, while at the same time a second respected poll found that on the key issues of the economy and national defense, and dealing with foreign leaders, GOP primary voters trust Trump over his competitors. While Trump still leads most national polls, one of the biggest questions right now is what he will do in the event that he cannot maintain his lead.

    The TPP, like many treaties before it, embraces the Investor-State Dispute Settlement process (ISDS), which allows corporate actors to sue sovereign nations to seek compensation for rules or regulations that impede the corporations ability to maximize profits. Unlike national courts that commonly allow corporations to sue to recoup actual investments, ISDS insists that corporations be compensated for expected profits, sometimes profits they anticipate decades into the future. The ISDS process is one-sided and undemocratic. Corporate claims against sovereign states are heard in special courts overseen by a handful of judges, most of whom are corporate lawyers. Once the ISDS panel...

    Drug-resistant head lice are very likely coming to a school near you, U.S. investigators warn. At least 25 states host lice populations that don't respond to common over-the-counter treatments, a new analysis reveals. Permethrin, part of the pyrethroid class of insecticides, has long been the go-to weapon against head lice, mosquitoes, bedbugs and other insects. But continued exposure to permethrin has caused a huge swath of the dreaded insects to develop genetic mutations that render such drugs useless. "It's a very classic resistance story. ...

    Former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina said Monday that adult illegal immigrants should not receive a path to citizenship under an immigration fix, but said she is open to giving their children citizenship. Mrs. Fiorina, who is running for the GOP presidential nomination, also said she could support giving those who have come here illegally and stayed here illegally legal status. I think legal status is a possibility for sure, Mrs. Fiorina said on MSNBCs Morning Joe. I think their children maybe can become citizens.

    Republican presidential candidate Rand Paul lashed out at Donald Trump during a campaign event Saturday in South Carolina, arguing conservatives cant trust the New York businessman because he has been on both sides of every issue. My goodness, Paul said in Goose Creek to the Berkeley County GOP. Hes been on both sides of every issue. Where is our sense? Where is our common sense? Added the Kentucky senator: This is a guy who has been pro-choice before he was pro-life. This is a guy who was liberal before he was conservative. This is a guy who was a Democrat...

    Republican presidential contender Jeb Bush called Donald Trump's candidacy a "phenomenon," and said his outspoken rival has "appealed to people's anger" as he has skyrocketed to the top of the polls. "I was surprised that Donald Trump has surged. I think he's captured the deep frustration that people feel," Bush told NBC News' Lester Holt in an exclusive interview on Friday. Trump who kicked off his campaign with controversial comments accusing Mexico of sending its rapists and murderers to the U.S. has a large lead over the GOP presidential field, a Quinnipiac poll released Thursday showed. "I get...

    In a recent interview, presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) called open borders a right-wing proposal and vocalized his opposition to an open borders policy. On July 16, Sanders sat down with Voxs Ezra Klein for an interview. During the interview, Klein asked Sanders about his identification as a socialist and its implications for his policy positions. [] At one point during the conversation, Klein began to ask Sanders, You said being a democratic socialist means a more international view. I think if you take global poverty that seriously, it leads you to conclusions that in the US are considered...

    President Bush's son, Jeb, is looking for a maid who's a legal U.S. resident. A maid who had worked at Bush's Miami home for three years was deported back to her native Honduras last week. Bush was out jogging when immigration agents showed up so his wife, Columba, had to deal with them. "She indicated, `Yes, she works here,' brought the lady out, and the two agents showed her the deportation order,said Richard Smith, director of the INS's Miami office."

    A federal judge in California has ruled that the Obama administrations detention of children and their mothers who were caught crossing the border illegally is a serious violation of a longstanding court settlement, and that the families should be released as quickly as possible. In a decision late Friday roundly rejecting the administrations arguments for holding the families, Judge Dolly M. Gee of Federal District Court for the Central District of California found that two detention centers in Texas that the administration opened last summer fail to meet minimum legal requirements of the 1997 settlement for facilities housing children. -snip-...

    Ill quote a little but youre better off reading the whole thing. Therell be lots of media noise around it for the next few days, especially after Trump responds. And its a fine indictment of Hopenchange even apart from the Trump stuff. Hes trying to do two things here, picking a fight with the medias favorite candidate to gain some reflected exposure and re-introducing himself to righties who disdain Trump but arent sure which way to go yet as an alternative. This is Perry telling Trump-haters, of which there are many, that their choices arent between Jeb Bush and Ted...
