In The News: Clashes On Temple Mount, Gaza, War Preparations, Ebola Pandemic Coming?

Clashes broke out midday Friday between Arab youths and police around the Temple Mount complex.

Blasts from stun grenades were heard from the site of the turmoil, as dozens of demonstrators tried to breach a police barrier at an entrance to the compound.

Clashes also broke out in the Ras-al-Amoud neighborhood on the Mount of Olives.

Unrest was expected on the first Friday of Ramadan, the same day slain Arab teenager, 16-year-old Muhammed Abu Khdeir, was scheduled to be buried. Abu Khdeir’s body was found in a Jerusalem forest Wednesday morning in an alleged revenge killing for three Israeli teenagers kidnapped and murdered on June 12.

In anticipation of unrest Friday, Border Police in the city increased their preparedness in Jerusalem, bringing in reinforcements, and limiting access to the Temple Mount to Muslim men 50 years and over, and all women.
The police precautions came after two days of clashes between East Jerusalem residents and Border Police officers as tensions escalated sharply surrounding Israeli calls for revenge against Arabs for the killing of the three teens.
The restrictions came amid efforts to prevent the spread of rioting seen Wednesday and Thursday.
On Thursday afternoon, Arab-Jewish tension in parts of Jerusalem was at fever pitch, three days after the funerals for the three slain Israeli teens and a day after the alleged revenge killing of Abu Khdeir.
In the Shuafat neighborhood, where Abu Khdeir lived, dozens of Arabs blocked roads with dumpsters and hurled rocks for the second day running. Police responded with riot-control munitions.

Once again, and not for the last time, Israeli leaders face the unsavory question of what is to be done with Gaza. As usual, none of the answers are good; most are terrible. Worse still, the dilemma comes amid the month of Ramadan, one day after the brutal killing of a Muslim teenager from East Jerusalem — allegedly by Jewish extremists — and several days after Israeli forces located the bodies of three murdered Jewish teens.

Finally, matters are further complicated by the fact that the Israel Police and the Shin Bet, at least publicly, have not arrested the suspected perpetrators in either of the still-festering cases.

The army, in response, is sending out uncharacteristically and explicitly soothing messages, on the one hand, and amassing troops on the other.

Lt. Col. Peter Lerner said in a phone interview that the troop build-up is defensive in nature and that “we want to deescalate the situation and restore calm.”

IDF Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz came out of a General Staff meeting and conveyed a similar message, albeit with a warning clause that violence would beget violence.

 East Jerusalem may simmer down, as has happened after numerous flare-ups over the past several years. But an operation in Gaza, with the inevitable scenes of Palestinian dead, could — in the wake of a failed peace process and amid an already tense month of Ramadan — spread to the West Bank. Such a development would rattle PA President Mahmoud Abbas’s hold on power and pave the path for a Hamas takeover. It is the most fervent of the organization’s desires, and, therefore, should be carefully examined by those with the most to lose: Israel, Abbas, and King Abdullah of Jordan, which already has Islamists at its northeastern gate and would, quite simply, face existential peril were it to meet a similar threat along its western frontier.

Health ministers from 11 West African countries began a two-day Emergency Ministerial meeting in Accra, Ghana, Wednesday amid concern the outbreak of the Ebola virus that began in Ghana could spread across their region as an uncontrolled pandemic.

In a statement distributed at the United Nations, the World Health Organization, WHO, classified the current Ebola outbreak as the worst ever.

Reuters reported Wednesday the Red Cross was forced to temporarily suspend some operations in the country’s southeast after a marked Red Cross vehicle was confronted and stopped by a knife-wielding mob that was concerned the medical workers were responsible for spreading the disease.
The WHO regional director for Africa, Dr. Luis Gomes Sambo, speaking at the opening session of the Accra meeting, called for urgent, collective cross-actions to bring an end to the outbreak.
Sambo observed that the continuing spread of the Ebola virus is largely associated with some cultural practices and traditional beliefs that are contrary to recommended public health preventive measures. Also, the extensive movement of people within and across borders has facilitated the rapid spread of the infection across three countries.

Given the highly contagious nature of the disease, WHO guidelines require health care medical professionals working with Ebola patients to wear full rubber protection suits, including face mask and goggles, gloves, rubber boots and a full-length apron in Guinea’s sweltering heat and humidity.

Addressing the delegates at the ministerial meeting in Accra, Dr. Sherry Ayittey, the minister of health of Ghana, said: “We are here to make a real difference … a difference that will be felt beyond this room for millions of people in dire need for solutions. We have a small window of opportunity to prevent the outbreak of Ebola from spreading further.”

After an incubation period of between two and 21 days, the Ebola virus can cause death a few days after the virus appears in particularly virulent cases where the body organs shut down and internal bleeding becomes unstoppable.
The Ebola virus has alarmed international health officials because the frequency of international air travel has increased the possibility the outbreak in one nation might quickly be transmitted to other countries by patients in the incubation phase of the infection.

A U.S. Border Patrol union representative says understaffing and poorly equipped, unsanitary facilities are making the general public more susceptible to the myriad diseases accompanying the wave of illegal aliens currently bypassing the US-Mexico border.
Following the documentation of two H1N1 virus cases among illegal minors being held in south Texas facilities, National Border Patrol Council Local 3307 Vice President Chris Cabrera says he’s concerned diseases could spread beyond the confines of detention centers to local residents and indeed “all over the United States.”
“No showers, no pillows, no bedding, nothing, there’s a lot of dust, a lot of dirt floating around in there – very grim conditions,” Cabrera said, describing the lack of resources to Action 4 News.

Cabrera says the temporary facilities simply aren’t designed to deal with such a massive amount of people. “We’re just so overwhelmed, we’re not outfitted, we’re not designed to be a long term holding facility,” Cabrera lamented. “You know everything there is just put together on the fly. We’re not prepared to deal with something like this and so things are getting through.”

He also says so-called “quarantine areas” are laughable and do little to keep anyone safe.
“The quarantine area is nothing more than a piece of yellow caution tape,” Cabrera said. “Do not cross this line, if you cross this line, this is where the people with scabies are, the people with chicken pox, or whatever. So there really is no barrier between one and the other.”

This could cause communicable diseases, like the H1N1 virus, to more easily spread to the public, he says. “It’s highly contagious just like the regular flu and anybody that comes in contact with him symptomatic or asymptomatic can potentially get H1N1 and spread it. It can be fatal,” Cabrera warned.

Various agents have already contracted diseases after being exposed to afflicted individuals, and reports suggest the influx may potentially bring with it other deadly diseases such as dengue, HIV and the incurable ebola virus.
Last week, when the vice president of National Border Patrol Council Local 1929 in El Paso sought federal assistance for agents, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention told him “they had no interest in this issue.”
However, on Tuesday, Infowars confirmed the CDC had indeed activated their Emergency Operation Center in response to the immigration influx, meaning the federal government now considers the illegal immigrant health crisis a “public health threat,” but no information beyond this has been provided. That means vital questions, such as: what diseases have been found, the frequency of those diseases, and which facilities had the highest rates of disease, remain unanswered.

The fact that immigrants are still being processed and shipped to other parts of the country, Cabrera says, puts the health of the nation at considerable risk. “They are coming in and it’s going to spread here to the locals in the Rio Grande Valley,” Cabrera predicts. “These people are taking buses, planes, trains all over the United States and so they are going to be taking those diseases with them.”

“A public health crisis, the likes of which I have not seen in my lifetime, is looming,” the doctor reported last month. “Hardest hit by exposures to these difficult-to-treat diseases will be elderly, children, immunosuppressed cancer-patients, patients with chronic lung disease or congestive heart failure. Drug-resistant tuberculosis is the most serious risk, but even diseases like measles can cause severe complications and death in older or immunocompromised patients.”

To help manage his manufactured refugee crisis on the southern border, President Obama has installed a security force that -- seriously -- refers to themselves as "Brown Shirts". Furthermore, they've threatened doctors and nurses who are treating disease-ridden illegal aliens with imprisonment if they tell the public about what they've seen in the Obama concentration refugee camps.

Todd Starnes explains in his detailed summary ("Medical staff warned: Keep your mouths shut about illegal immigrants or face arrest"):

A government-contracted security force threatened to arrest doctors and nurses if they divulged any information about the contagion threat at a refugee camp housing illegal alien children at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas, sources say.

In spite of the threat, several former camp workers broke their confidentiality agreements and shared exclusive details with me about the dangerous conditions at the camp. They said taxpayers deserve to know about the contagious diseases and the risks the children pose to Americans. I have agreed to not to disclose their identities because they fear retaliation and prosecution...

...The sources said workers were guarded by a security force from the BCFS, which the Department of Health and Human Services hired to run the Lackland Camp... The sources say security forces called themselves the “Brown Shirts.”

“It was a very submissive atmosphere,” the counselor said. “Once you stepped onto the grounds, you abided by their laws – the Brown Shirt laws.”

She said the workers were stripped of their cellphones and other communication devices. Anyone caught with a phone was immediately fired... “Everyone was paranoid,” she said. “The children had more rights than the workers." ... She said children in the camp had measles, scabies, chicken pox and strep throat as well as mental and emotional issues.

...A former nurse at the camp told me she was horrified by what she saw... “We have so many kids coming in that there was no way to control all of the sickness – all this stuff coming into the country,” she said.

In the mid-sixties at the height of the “social revolution” the line between democratic benevolence and outright communism became rather blurry. The Democratic Party, which controlled the presidency and both houses of Congress, was used as the springboard by social engineers to introduce a new era of welfare initiatives enacted in the name of “defending the poor”, also known as the “Great Society Programs”. These initiatives, however, were driven by far more subversive and extreme motivations, and have been expanded on by every presidency since, Republican and Democrat alike.

At Columbia University, sociologist professors Richard Cloward and Francis Fox Piven introduced a political strategy in 1966 in an article entitled 'The Weight Of The Poor: A Strategy To End Poverty'. This article outlined a plan that they believed would eventually lead to the total transmutation of America into a full-fledged centralized welfare state (in other words, a collectivist enclave). The spearpoint of the Cloward-Piven strategy involved nothing less than economic sabotage against the U.S.

Theoretically, according to the doctrine, a condition of overwhelming tension and strain could be engineered through the overloading of American welfare rolls, thereby smothering the entitlement program structure at the state and local level. The implosion of welfare benefits would facilitate a massive spike in poverty and desperation, creating a financial crisis that would lead to an even greater cycle of demand for a fully socialized system. This desperation would then “force” the federal government to concentrate all welfare programs under one roof, nationalize and enforce a socialist ideology, and ultimately, compact an immense level of power into the hands of a select few.

The dollar has lost approximately 98% of its purchasing power since 1972, and after 50 years of the so-called “War on Poverty”, nearly one third of the American population now repeatedly slips under the official poverty line.

In the past decade alone, the number of people dependent on food stamps and EBT for their survival in the U.S. has doubled from 25 million people to nearly 50 million people. Those who receive some kind of payment from the government, including those on social security, disability, and veterans benefits, are approximately 100 million.

In the end, it is the Federal Government itself that is most vulnerable to the Cloward-Piven Strategy, and I believe the goal is to set fire to ALL social structures in the U.S., then assimilate them into a new globalist system.

The tactic of overwhelming the welfare structure REQUIRES the complicity of the government itself. A grassroots activist movement cannot and will never compel federal and state governments to expand welfare initiatives if they do not wish to. If welfare programs are not expanded beyond their capacity to be maintained, they cannot be overwhelmed. Therefore, government must cooperate with the Cloward-Piven Strategy by generating more and more welfare programs to be exploited. That is to say, the elitists who control our government, regardless of their claimed political party, must WANT to arrange circumstances to allow for Cloward-Piven to be successful.

Another key component of Cloward-Piven is the existence of an immense number of poverty stricken people. Without a significant portion of the population under the poverty level, there is no mass of people to use as a weapon. 

 Government, along with the aid or direction of central bankers, is able to create any level of poverty it wishes at any time by simply pretending to bungle everything it does.

Once again, Cloward-Piven (much like Saul Alinsky's repertoire of propaganda scams) is far more useful to the power elite than it is to the common citizen. As former White House Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel, famously said:

You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that is it's an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before...”

Under Obama's watch alone, our real national debt including unfunded liabilities and entitlements has risen to nearly $200 trillion. Our “official” national debt has gone from $10 trillion to $17 trillion in the short time Obama has been in office. Real unemployment including U-6 measurements stands at around 20% of all Americans. Personal wealth and savings have plummeted. Wages remain in stasis while prices on necessary goods continue to rise.

In my articles 'The Socialization Of America Is Economically Impossible' and 'Obamacare: Is It A Divide-And-Conquer Distraction?', I examined much evidence suggesting that Obamacare was actually designed to fail, and that the bumbling of the Obama White House when dealing with the program was purely deliberate. When coupled with Obama's handling of the current illegal immigration conflict, I would say that the Cloward-Piven Strategy is in full force.

The president does not wish to stop the flood of immigrants exactly because Cloward-Piven requires their presence. Not only would this officially add millions of people to welfare rolls, but I would venture to suggest that Obama will likely include automatic sign-up to universal healthcare as part of his amnesty measures.
If there wasn't enough strain on the social welfare structure before, there certainly will be now.

Both Republican and Democratic regimes have made our current calamity possible, and the leaderships behind both parties are nothing more than paid mascots for international financiers and globalists who have a very different vision of what America should be.

The tactic can only decrease wealth security by making all citizens equally destitute. As we have seen in numerous socialist and communist experiments over the past century, economic harmonization never creates wealth or prosperity, it only siphons wealth from one area and redistributes it to others, evaporating much of it as it is squeezed through the grinding gears of the establishment machine. Socialism, in its very essence, elevates government to the role of all-pervasive parent, and casts the citizenry down into the role of dependent sniveling infant. Even in its most righteous form, Cloward-Piven seeks to make infants of us all, whether we like it or not.

Well that was quite refreshing. In he bounded, the right side of 40, all grins and references to selfies and ancient philosophers, brash and self-confident.
Yes, it was Italian PM Matteo Renzi's first appearance in the European Parliament. Speaking without notes, he told his audience that Europe is moving at half the speed of the rest of the world, that its single-minded focus on financial spreadsheets has eviscerated its soul and that its face was tired and resigned.
He sounded like a man who was about to become president of the EU rather than just have his bureaucracy oversee the EU's law-making bureaucracy for the coming half year.

Riding the back of a strong victory in the EU elections, where a reform platform saw him win 41 percent of the Italian vote, his ebullience begs listeners to look at who he is sharing the EU stage with.
