The left-leaning Politifact website came out with their “Lie of the Year” award this week. This year the liberal outfit announced the Ebola scare was the biggest lie of the year.
Of course, the Ebola scare was not a lie - Over 7,000 people have died from the disease and possibly many more. The WHO says the disease has a 70% mortality rate.
But facts rarely matter to leftist reporters with an agenda.
Today, investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson responded to Politifact.
Attkisson noted that the media coverage of Ebola vanished after the White House appointed a far left hack with expertise in revolutionary politics as Ebola czar.
Attkisson told Howard Kurtz on Media Buzz that the CDC is hiding suspected cases from the American public.
Infectious disease experts remain very concerned about the disease… A lot of the media coverage has gone from overtime to almost nothing since the administration has appointed an Ebola czar. And I don’t think that’s any accident. That’s a strategy… I called CDC not long ago and said, “How many active cases are being monitored in the United States of Ebola?” And they said, “1,400.” And I said, “Where is that on your website, these updates?” And they said, “We’re not putting it on the web.” So I think there’s an effort to control the message and tamp it down. This is public information we have a right to and I think the media should not hype it but cover it.

For the record… Obama’s lie about executive amnesty that he repeated more than 20 times did not register in Politifact’s voting.
Fifty years of despicable Communism, given a pass by Obama.

HAVANA — President Raúl Castro declared victory for the Cuban Revolution on Saturday in a wide-ranging speech, thanking President Obama for “a new chapter” while also reaffirming that restored relations with the United States did not mean the end of Communist rule in Cuba.
In a televised speech before Parliament and a group of favored guests — including Elián González, the center of a tug of war in 2000 between Cuban exiles and Havana, and the three men convicted of spying in the United States who were released as part of the historic agreement announced on Wednesday — Mr. Castro alternated between conciliatory and combative statements directed at the United States.
The United States issued a worldwide travel alert Friday, warning Americans to be vigilant during the holiday period, especially in the wake of a deadly siege in Australia.
Sydney this week saw a dramatic siege in a cafe that began Monday and left two hostages and a gunman dead.
“The lone wolf attack in Sydney, Australia… resulting in the deaths of two hostages, is a reminder that US citizens should be extra cautious, maintain a very high level of vigilance and take appropriate steps to enhance their personal security,” the State Department alert read.
The agency said an analysis of past attacks “strongly suggests” terrorists this holiday season are focusing not only on US government facilities but also on hotels, shopping areas, places of worship and schools.
“US citizens abroad should be mindful that terrorist groups and those inspired by them can pose unpredictable threats in public venues,” the alert said.

Ex-NYPD Commissioner Kerik is right… De Blasio and Sharpton Have ‘Blood on Their Hands.’ They brought this on and they share responsibility for the deaths of these two officers. Last Saturday, two NYPD officers were assaulted by seven protesters who punched and kicked them. Now this. What did the race baiters expect? They begged for this to happen – they incited riots and violence and now two good men are dead. They were working overtime as part of an anti-terrorism drill in Bedford-Stuyvesant. Very dark irony at play.
Ismaaiyl Brinsley, a gang banger, nonchalantly walked up to the patrol car, pulled a gun and shot the officers. His Instagram page bragged about committing this atrocity 48 hours before he did the deed. First he shot his girlfriend in Baltimore… then he drove to New York and murdered two officers and then committed suicide in a subway station. This was an execution plain and simple and Brinsley said he did it in revenge for Eric Garner and Michael Brown. Both killed by cops in the line of duty and both grand juries found the officers innocent. But because of ginned up racial unrest by the likes of Al Sharpton and Mayor De Blasio, thugs are taking their own form of justice in the streets. Well done, you grandstanding, evil idiots.
De Blasio is on the air as I write this. I can’t stomach watching the hypocrite. Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos will miss Christmas with their grieving families this year. Meanwhile, De Blasio poses for the cameras and tries to look sad. I call bull crap. He threw all of the NYPD under the bus over the Garner incident. They weren’t innocent till proven guilty – they were ruled innocent and declared guilty by their own Marxist Mayor.

Another step has been taken to restore second amendment rights to the position that they held before the modern assault on the Constitution. It is an important case because it establishes the precedent that your second amendment rights cannot be permanently removed for a temporary condition; and that the proper level of scrutiny in the court is the highest accorded to fundamental constitutional rights, that of strict scrutiny. From the opinion of the court, pdf file:
BOGGS, Circuit Judge. This case presents an important issue of first impression in the federal courts: whether a prohibition on the possession of firearms by a person “who has been committed to a mental institution,” 18 U.S.C. § 922(g)(4), violates the Second Amendment. Twenty-eight years ago, Clifford Charles Tyler was involuntarily committed for less than one month after allegedly undergoing an emotionally devastating divorce. Consequently, he can never possess a firearm. Tyler filed suit in federal court, seeking a declaratory judgment that § 922(g)(4) is unconstitutional as applied to him. The district court dismissed Tyler’s suit for failure to state a claim. Because Tyler’s complaint validly states a violation of the Second Amendment, we reverse and remand.
It is of significant interest that much of the case centers on the refusal of the federal government to provide a mechanism for relief in these cases. In point of fact, disarmists have blocked passage of funding to allow cases to be reviewed, and the Justice Department refuses to review cases at all.
