More than a dozen cases of Enterovirus D68 have been confirmed in New York state, according to officials.

“EV-D68 is causing cases of severe respiratory illness … sometimes resulting in hospitalization, especially among children with asthma,” the NYS Department of Health said in a statement Friday.

Enteroviruses are quite common in September; the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates 10 to 15 million people are infected by these viruses each year. But doctors believe this particular type of enterovirus, Enterovirus D68, is causing more serious problems than others have in years past.

As of September 11, more than 80 cases in six other states — Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky and Missouri — have been confirmed to be EV-D68, according to the CDC.

New York is the first state in the Northeast with confirmed cases.

A federal judge in Arizona ruled Friday that state officials must recognize the marriage of two men who were wed in California this year, though the ruling will not affect the ongoing fight to overturn the state’s ban on same-sex marriage, court filings show.

In a 14-page ruling, U.S. District Judge John Sedwick found that Arizona officials must recognize the marriage of John McQuire and George Martinez, who were wed in California in July.

Martinez died of a terminal illness this year, and McQuire was demanding that Arizona officials release a death certificate recognizing him as Martinez’s husband.

“Couples in America should not have to play ‘now you’re married, now you’re not’ depending on which state they are in when a tragedy strikes, and states should not pick and choose which marriages they will respect and which they won’t as if we did not have one Constitution protecting all of us,” Evan Wolfson, president of the same-sex marriage advocacy group Freedom to Marry, said in a statement.

The Wyoming Department of Corrections should be able to employ a firing squad to execute condemned inmates if the state can’t find the drugs to carry out lethal injections, a legislative committee voted Friday.

Meeting in Laramie, the interim Joint Judiciary Committee advanced a firing-squad bill for the full Legislature to consider when it convenes early next year. The committee rejected another bill that would have called for the state to repeal the death penalty altogether.

Palestinian Authority Unveils Memorial To 9/11 HIJACKERS (Satire…But True ;)

Thirteen years after nearly 3,000 people were killed in Islamic terrorist attacks on US soil, a Palestinian monument has finally been set up to commemorate the event and to honor those who died piloting the aircraft involved.

A forty-foot statue of a Boeing 767-200ER crashing into a skyscraper was unveiled this morning in the square amid fanfare and speeches by political and cultural figures calling for continued resistance to Western “colonialism.” A military band played nationalist songs in praise of martyrdom while sweets were distributed to children, and attendees held aloft banners in tribute to the 19 men, mostly Saudi nationals, who hijacked four airplanes and crashed three of them into the Twin Towers and the Pentagon. A fourth attempt was thwarted by passengers and that plane crashed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

The base of the statue features a plaque with the names of the nineteen hijackers, after whom numerous children have been named in the Muslim world. When news of the attacks and resulting destruction reached the Palestinian territories in 2001, residents reacted jubilantly, as they saw the attacks as punishment for American policies in the Middle East. But in the intervening years Palestinian frustration has grown, as even such a fearsome blow to prominent symbols of American economic and military might produced no reduction in American support for Israel and no progress toward the defeat and destruction of Israel.

The rush of satisfaction from the attacks, however, has served as a rallying point. Support for violent opposition to Israel, which many see as an extension of the US or vice versa, has remained high even as Palestinian leaders have oscillated between openly supporting terrorism and maintaining an official position opposed to violence but nevertheless tolerating it.

Americans should be more concerned about their privacy being invaded by the spread of drones, Justice Sonia Sotomayor told an Oklahoma City audience on Thursday.

Speaking before a group of faculty members and students at Oklahoma City University’s law school on Sept. 11, Justice Sotomayor said “frightening” changes in surveillance technology should encourage citizens to take a more active role in the privacy debate. She said she’s particularly troubled by the potential for commercial and government drones to compromise personal privacy.

Disarming Realities: As Gun Sales Soar, Gun Crimes Plummet

A couple of new studies reveal the gun-control hypesters’ worst nightmare…more people are buying firearms, while firearm-related homicides and suicides are steadily diminishing. What crackpots came up with these conclusions? One set of statistics was compiled by the U.S. Department of Justice. The other was reported by the Pew Research Center.

According to DOJ’s Bureau of Justice Statistics, U.S. gun-related homicides dropped 39 percent over the course of 18 years, from 18,253 during 1993, to 11,101 in 2011. During the same period, non-fatal firearm crimes decreased even more, a whopping 69 percent. The majority of those declines in both categories occurred during the first 10 years of that time frame. Firearm homicides declined from 1993 to 1999, rose through 2006, and then declined again through 2011. Non-fatal firearm violence declined from 1993 through 2004, then fluctuated in the mid-to-late 2000s.

And where did the bad people who did the shooting get most of their guns? Were those gun show “loopholes” responsible? Nope. According to surveys DOJ conducted of state prison inmates during 2004 (the most recent year of data available), only two percent who owned a gun at the time of their offense bought it at either a gun show or flea market. About 10 percent said they purchased their gun from a retail shop or pawnshop, 37 percent obtained it from family or friends, and another 40 percent obtained it from an illegal source.

Law enforcement officials and city leaders from across the Rio Grande Valley are preparing for what they say could result in tense moments or violence.

Officials say they received word that members of a militia are threatening to block ports of entry.

In Starr County, international bridge authorities met with Customs and Border Protection officials Thursday. Their goal was to discuss the potential problem and find a plan of action.

Starr County has international bridges in Rio Grande City, Roma and Falcon Dam.

Officials received word that members of a militia plan to protest illegal crossings by blocking traffic on Sept. 20.

Rio Grande City Mayor Ruben Villarreal said members of the group have a right to express their opinion. His is concerned about the group’s intent, though.

“What can we expect? I don’t know. The unknown becomes an issue that we really got to prepare for,” Villarreal said.

How he describes himself:

Baldr Odinson approaches the University of Oregon library dressed entirely in white-sweatshirt, sweatpants, and tennis shoes. A tiny red button on his chest contrasts the white ensemble. The button reads, “Stop Gun Violence.” When asked why he wears all white clothing, he proudly proclaims, “…white is the color of peace.”

…He now works to stop gun violence because he, “…want[s] a better world for my kids, than the one I grew up in.”

How he presents himself:

Baldr hate

Hilariously he goes and maligns pro-gun havens. Notice how the entire Northeast is “Open-Carryland”, yet that includes New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, and Connecticut. All places with horribly restrictive gun laws and places where if open carry IS permitted, it’s by license only, and open carry is a good way to LOSE that license as well as get your ass arrested.

California is also maligned, yet it’s the poster child for gun control. Hell ALL of the country is maligned, because HATE.

The Wyoming State Loan and Investment Board has approved a new financial package to help bring Magpul Industries to Cheyenne.

The board on Wednesday voted 4-1 to lower the previously approved $13 million grant to $8.3 million for the Colorado producer of ammunition magazines for guns to move its manufacturing and warehouse operations.

Changes in plans for housing the company’s operations in Cheyenne allowed the reduction.

Erie, Colorado-based Magpul decided to move its production, distribution and shipping operations to Cheyenne and its headquarters to Texas after Colorado enacted gun control laws last year.

Magpul plans to have some of its operations up and running in Cheyenne in November, creating about 90 new jobs. It plans to close its Colorado facility sometime next spring.

A Hamburg resident who was ordered to take down an anti-SAFE Act and anti-Governor Cuomo signs along his fence will be allowed to leave it there for at least the next 30 days after a ruling in State Supreme Court Thursday

Scott Zwierucha is accused of a village code violation for the large banner on the fence of his South Park Avenue property. Right now, the sign says “New York is not Safe – Fight Cuomo- preserve your rights.”, and he was under a order from the Hamburg town court to remove the signs by tomorrow.

New York State Supreme Court Justice James Dillon on Thursday ruled the signs may stay up, delaying Hamburg Justice Andrew Flemings ruling for 30 days after hearing arguments from Zwierucha’s attorney.

” There is no question that the three signs constitute political speech protected by the First Amendment,” Attorney Jim Ostrowski wrote in his petition to State Supreme Court..

911: Marking The Anniversary…

Thirteen years ago today the United States was attacked. More than 3,000 people lost their lives because a radical group of monsters saw a giant sleeping and took advantage of it. It could easily happen again.

The mood in the pre-9/11 world was one of contentment and ignorance. The United States was the only remaining superpower, and we felt invincible. But human beings are not invincible, a lesson we learned that horrible day.

We’d turned away from the rest of the world after the fall of the Soviet Union, thinking the threats to our security were crushed under the crumbled Berlin Wall. We were wrong.

We’ve returned to that pre-9/11 mentality of willful ignorance to world affairs and threats from abroad. But this time is different; this time it’s purposeful.

Obama: “ISIL Is Not Islamic” (Is He Smoking Weed Again?)

PRESIDENT OBAMA on 9/10/14: My fellow Americans, tonight I want to speak to you about what the United States will do with our friends and allies to degrade and ultimately destroy the terrorist group known as ISIL.

As Commander-in-Chief, my highest priority is the security of the American people. Over the last several years, we have consistently taken the fight to terrorists who threaten our country. We took out Osama bin Laden and much of al Qaeda’s leadership in Afghanistan and Pakistan. We’ve targeted al Qaeda’s affiliate in Yemen, and recently eliminated the top commander of its affiliate in Somalia. We’ve done so while bringing more than 140,000 American troops home from Iraq, and drawing down our forces in Afghanistan, where our combat mission will end later this year. Thanks to our military and counterterrorism professionals, America is safer.

Still, we continue to face a terrorist threat. We can’t erase every trace of evil from the world, and small groups of killers have the capacity to do great harm. That was the case before 9/11, and that remains true today. And that’s why we must remain vigilant as threats emerge. At this moment, the greatest threats come from the Middle East and North Africa, where radical groups exploit grievances for their own gain. And one of those groups is ISIL — which calls itself the “Islamic State.”

Now let’s make two things clear: ISIL is not “Islamic.” No religion condones the killing of innocents. And the vast majority of ISIL’s victims have been Muslim. And ISIL is certainly not a state. It was formerly al Qaeda’s affiliate in Iraq, and has taken advantage of sectarian strife and Syria’s civil war to gain territory on both sides of the Iraq-Syrian border. It is recognized by no government, nor by the people it subjugates. ISIL is a terrorist organization, pure and simple. And it has no vision other than the slaughter of all who stand in its way.

Ted Cruz: Hatred, Bigotry, Opposition to Israel Led to Me Leaving Event

Reports surfaced Wednesday night that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) was “booed off the stage” at an event hosted by a purportedly Christian organization.

Cruz, the keynote speaker at the new “In Defense Of Christians” organization’s dinner in Washington DC, had offered the crowd–a number of whom were Christians from the Middle East, including Palestinian Christians–public support for Israel. After doing so, some members of the crowd booed at Cruz, and they persisted until he left the stage, noting their hatred and saying he can’t stand with them if they don’t stand with Israel.

“Tonight, in Washington, should have been a night of unity as we came together for the inaugural event for a group that calls itself ‘In Defense of Christians.’ Instead, it unfortunately deteriorated into a shameful display of bigotry and hatred,” Cruz said in a statement provided to Breitbart News. “When I spoke in strong support of Israel and the Jewish people, who are being persecuted and murdered by the same vicious terrorists who are also slaughtering Christians, many Christians in the audience applauded. But, sadly, a vocal and angry minority of attendees at the conference tried to shout down my expression of solidarity with Israel.”

Missouri Senate Votes to Override Gov. Nixon’s Veto of Armed Teachers Bill

On September 10, the Missouri Senate voted to override Governor Jay Nixon’s (D) veto of SB 656–the legislation to allow schools to train teachers to become “School Protection Officers” and carry guns with which to protect children on campus.

SB 656 also allows people who possess a concealed carry permit (CCW) to openly carry firearms, and it lowers the legal age for a CCW from 21 to 19.

The override passed by a margin of 23 to 8. A house vote is set for September 11, where the veto is expected to be overturned.

Breitbart News previously reported that when Governor Nixon vetoed the legislation in July, he said, “Arming teachers will not make our schools safer.” But he did not explain how training teachers in firearms proficiency would fail to make schools safer than they are now.
