Towards a Pro-America, Pro-West Foreign Policy

For years, I have written in this humble blog that Obama and his team have created an unprecedented foreign policy disaster. The disaster be...

The WHO Announces the End of the World . . . Again

The overfunded World Health Organisation (WHO) is at it again,
When the head of the World Health Organization says a new virus is her "greatest concern right now," people worldwide may wonder whether they should be concerned
And, of course we have this not at all alarmist story, in which the Grand Mayor of WHOville, Dr. Margaret Chan, said in Geneva on Monday that the respiratory coronavirus MERS “is a threat to the entire world.”

In the course of my long career with the State Department, I don't know how many times I had to deal with the impending end of the world as declared by the WHO, the CDC, the media, and a host of "experts" who inevitably demanded (and got) more money for their organizations. By now, of course, we all should be dead from AIDS, SARS, swine flu, global warming, depleted ozone layer, mercury in our fish, etc. It, however, would appear from anecdotal evidence that we're not.

I guess one of these days we might have the real deal. Even the boy who cried wolf eventually got it right, but who (no pun intended) will believe the warnings?

If, however, this time it is true--even if it's not--this is a perfectly good excuse to cut off immigration from the Middle East where this virus apparently originates.

So, by all means, let's hype this "threat" to the heavens!

Do it for Gaia!

Do it for the children!

  1. I wonder how much of this exaggeration (let's not forget red food dye, acid rain and asbestos) is due to a subconscious desire on the part of our "leaders" for the simpler set of problems offered by a dystopian world?

  2. Cut off Middle East immigration? I don't know. I don't see the danger posed by Armenians, Maronites, Lebanese and Syriac Christians, Persian Zoroastrians, and Mizrahi Jews.

  3. The late Michael Crichton's "State of Fear." That's what drives the world, its bureaucrats, and their funding: a perpetual State of Fear.

    Taking that as a cue, all we gotta do is link all the WHO stuff up with the HAF crowd. (HAF = Hot Air Fanatics [anthropomorphic global warming - not to be confused with the Hot Air blog]).

  5. Given the continual litany of “leaders” who are mere administrators in suits, at best, with nearly no exceptions, like Churchill, Thatcher, Reagan for the most part, and Washington, Madison, Jefferson, et al, Lincoln, and many of these administrators answer to half a****, full *****, sometimes morons, incompetents, and one a devious fraud, so far.

    We have to live with lesser mortals that includes all sorts of descriptions, and very much so a hell of a lot of “chicken littles”. These dudes get inordinate press and attention, among a largely very poorly educated press and public.

    Eventually it’ll roll around to realizing we got a lot of potentially dangerous space debris careening by earth, and missing, and eventually, we’ll get impacted again. Such is life on a space object, with no controlled universe space controllers,unionized yet, except maybe for God.

    But even there, somehow this seems to be the grand scheme of things, doesn't it?

    We have had many plagues and infections, and oh so many other natural disasters, spread over upon humanity.

    When we mere mortals can affect them, we perhaps should, but we damn well should collectively learn our place in this heaven or universe, and not be as self-centered narcissistic as we have become, due to a ridiculous education system, that encourages that, and not enough teaching in things like the Real Holy Bible, be it Torah, or Holy, and the wisdom behind the famous, although less famous than it should be:

    “God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    The courage to change the things I can,
    And wisdom to know the difference.”

    That real wisdom is called the "Serenity Prayer" gasp, and so very many have never heard it or gave a damn when they did! It is a prayer for God to grant wisdom! Something so few in government and leadership positions ever have, or enough of. Dip being an exemplar of the opposite, and of having actually received and displayed wisdom. Wisdom is also keeping aware of the big picture, of perspective, and knowing that "this too shall pass."

    Most administrators haven’t a clue, and run around the barnyard do ’in the “chicken little dance”.

    1. I'd generally Jack accept out of hand what you've typed.

      But then, "generally speaking" I'm of the opinion some rock from outer space will intersect "our" placemark.

      (Of course I get into trouble at Sunday School - to which I've no recourse - but "Eventualities [given enough time, usually prove out] are Actualities" in Time).

      It's difficult Jack my friend, to stay up with all the links you provide.

      Then again I suppose, reading each is a better occupation than counting asteroids.

    2. Arkie, my friend, I hope you noted that I agree, with "eventually, we’ll get impacted again." = "some rock from outer space will intersect "our" placemark." (cleverly said BTW, Arkie) = knowing that "this too shall pass." which could apply to the earth itself even existing after impact, as well, eventually, let alone just changed. Of course, we human species might have been long gone, by then, who knows?

      Much sorrow about the copius links, better than counting asteroids, or microbes, like the asteroid I've known about for a few days, again whizzing past tommorrow, somewhere in our neighberhood, too close for comfort again, but "a miss is as good as a mile", five miles or so in diameter.

      The best or most important link, is the one I forgot, I wrote to quickly, but here is the best that I didn't include, even:

      http://www.forbes.com/sites/jamestaylor/2013/05/30/global-warming-alarmists-caught-doctoring-97-percent-consensus-claims/ those cheaters, again.

      Much sorrow about that error, as I was going to put in only the three Forbes links, but then noticed several worthy additional links to build a bigger better picture, including hussein doing his dictator wannabe behavior.

      He's about as intelligent as idi amin, the vicious dictator who reigned terror in Uganda, in the wild 70's, and made remarks quoted herein, chillingly familiar to some we've heard in our own government these days from more than just the one individual, actually scary, when you know what amin did:

      "In any country there must be people who have to die. They are the sacrifices any nation has to make to achieve law and order.

      If we knew the meaning to everything that is happening to us, then there would be no meaning.

      You cannot run faster than a bullet.

      Sometimes people mistake the way I talk for what I am thinking.

      I am the hero of Africa. idi amin"
      from brainy quotes.com.

      Such is life, Arkie, too much "past is prologue", these days.

    3. Can't hardly argue with that Jack.

      (I suppose it's more a problem for me if only 'cause I take the time to read every link you post - very many repeat stuff I'm familiar with - but too, you're one of the few who've been aware [quick & replied] the Alawites observing some Christian "holidays.")

      Unlike "poor befuddled" John McCain who travels to Syria only to find himself smiling alongside and alongside someone he'd rather not (or should've known better) than appear on US TV with.

      Of course the McCain would, if he could, overdo Libya.

      It'd be better "we" limit the whys of exposure to Obama. At least until after the mid-terms.

  6. The "Who" huh. Can they still "Not get fooled again"? Or are they in the prediction business again "I can see for miles and miles"? Haven't heard about public transportation in a day or two "Magic Bus"!

  7. The Deocratic party has allied itself with Muslims so immigration from the ME will be turbo charged just as Mexican immigration has been for years. The democrats own the gay lobby which would be butchered in practice by Muslims; they own the Jewish lobby which would be annihilated the way uncle Adolf implemented 70 years ago. They own the single unwed women vote who would be flogged, stoned or killed should Muslims have real power in the USA the way Hispanics soon will exercise. How do they do it and still win so many elections?
