It's funny how a couple starts to think similarly over time. When we first heard this nurse whine my wife and I said at the same time, "Tough shit!"
Maine health commissioner Mary Mayhew
said late Wednesday afternoon that,
even as it continues talks with Hickox's representatives,
the state is in the process of filing a court order
to require the nurse to abide by a 21-day quarantine.
Mayhew cited concerns about Hickox's hands-on role in dealing with Ebola patients,
as well as "concerns about the lack of reliability
and the lack of trustworthiness
in the information that has been received."
Asked what she'd tell Hickox, Mayhew said,
"We have been pleading for common sense,
for an appreciation for the risks that exists."
The health commissioner said she "did not understand"
why Hickox is challenging what she calls a "common-sense approach"
of staying home for three weeks.
"(This is) a reasonable request to ensure -- out of an abundance of caution --
that we are protecting the people of this state," Mayhew said.
Yet Hickox thinks the U.S. Constitution and science are on her side.
And, because of that, she has no intention of staying put.
"I am completely healthy and symptom-free,"
Hickox said Wednesday night from her front lawn, alongside her boyfriend.
"I am frustrated by (the) intention ... to file legal action against me.
“Putin may then revert to the smaller victory that would still be within his reach:
he could open by force a land route from Russia to Crimea and Transnistria before winter.
he could simply sit back and await the economic and financial collapse of Ukraine.
I suspect that he may be holding out the prospect
of a grand bargain in which Russia
would help the United States against ISIS—
for instance by not supplying to Syria the S300 missiles it has promised,
thus in effect preserving US air domination—
and Russia would be allowed to have its way in the “near abroad,”
as many of the nations adjoining Russia are called.
What is worse, President Obama may accept such a deal.
simply sit back and await the economic and financial collapse of Ukraine.
According to the above, Silverstein already had insurance for Building 7
Placing Silverstein within the knowledge-of-explosives-planted-in-the-building crowd implies that he was one of the Players.
Can't get much more direct than that...
The other day I was talking to a senior Obama administration official about the foreign leader who seems to frustrate the White House and the State Department the most. “The thing about Bibi is, he’s a chickenshit,” this official said, referring to the Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, by his nickname.
This comment is representative of the gloves-off manner in which American and Israeli officials now talk about each other behind closed doors, and is yet another sign that relations between the Obama and Netanyahu governments have moved toward a full-blown crisis. The relationship between these two administrations— dual guarantors of the putatively “unbreakable” bond between the U.S. and Israel—is now the worst it's ever been, and it stands to get significantly worse after the November midterm elections. By next year, the Obama administration may actually withdraw diplomatic cover for Israel at the United Nations, but even before that, both sides are expecting a showdown over Iran, should an agreement be reached about the future of its nuclear program.
The fault for this breakdown in relations can be assigned in good part to the junior partner in the relationship, Netanyahu, and in particular, to the behavior of his cabinet. Netanyahu has told several people I’ve spoken to in recent days that he has “written off” the Obama administration, and plans to speak directly to Congress and to the American people should an Iran nuclear deal be reached. For their part, Obama administration officials express, in the words of one official, a “red-hot anger” at Netanyahu for pursuing settlement policies on the West Bank, and building policies in Jerusalem, that they believe have fatally undermined Secretary of State John Kerry’s peace process.
Mr. George Soros has weighed in on the growing implications of the Ukrainian mess – which he helped foster – for Europe. And this has to be truly read to comprehend the depth to which the current western finance elite has boxed itself into its own Matrix reality:
Wake Up, Europe
But secondly, note that the real concern being voiced here is the need to keep NATO alive, and through it, the EU, thereby admitting in yet another backhanded fashion what many Europeans already suspect, namely, that their national sovereignty and even cultural identity is under threat by the EU, and that the EU is, in turn, nothing but a front for NATO and American-Wall Street interests. It is also worth noting that Mr. Soros conveniently glosses over – once again by omission – that solemn assurances were given to Mr. Gorbachev during the final days of the Soviet Union, that NATO would not be expanded eastward. Indeed, some could argue that this expansion has itself destabilized the region, leading to the current mess. And Mr. Soros, by his own admissions, has, like many other billionaire busybodies, contributed to the mess.
In short, Mr. Soros, if no one now believes your carefully stated concerns, you have only yourself to blame.
Had [Silverstein] known of the plot surely he would have bought cover for Building 7 too, rather than leaving it until the afternoon of 9.11 when Jeffrey Scott Schapiro for Fox and several police and fire department officers watched while he phoned his insurers, just prior to him telling them to "pull it".
Consider the facts:(My italics)
The fires in WTC 7 were not evenly distributed, so a perfect collapse was impossible.
Heavy duty explosives were in the building.
Silverstein spoke to his insurance carrier about demolishing the building.
Silverstein said to the fire department commander "the smartest thing to do is pull it."
Firefighters withdrawing from the area stated the building was going to "blow up".
News media outlets had foreknowledge of the collapse.
An explosion can be heard prior to the building's penthouse collapse.
Cutter charges can be heard immediately before the collapse.
The building collapsed perfectly into its footprint at freefall speed.
