The US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is projecting up to 1.4 million people infected with the ebola virus by January 2015 (per Reuters), which going by the conservative history of CDC projections is probably way too low.
Republican Elephant by DonkeyHotey via Flickr (CC by 2.0) Keep in mind the three times zero would be zero, so this study does not exonerate the Democrats. The idea that both parties are exactly the same is just as wrong as the idea that because one is bad the other must be good. From the Center for Media and Public Affairs: A leading media fact-checking organization rates Republicans as less trustworthy than Democrats, according to a new study by the Center for Media and Public Affairs (CMPA) at George Mason University.

Still from KafkaWinstonWorld’s video at post bottom In a bizarre example of terrorism paranoia, America’s current bogeyman, ISIS, has been linked to the Georgia Guidestones (for those of you who don’t know about the Guidestones, check out our exclusive video below) following some recent vandalism where the word “Isis” was left on one of the stones (see video at bottom of post at 3:48 in).

The Wall Street bankers and billionaires had better watch out.
