James O’Keefe’s latest video shows a black-clad jihadi with a British accent being ferried across Lake Erie, which separates Ohio from the Canadian province of Ontario.
“British intelligence believes more than 500 British citizens have joined ISIS. Brits can enter Canada without a visa; it’s virtually an open door.”
In the short gonzo documentary, O’Keefe meets up with a ‘terrorist’ who has hired a boat to bring him from Ontario to the middle of Lake Erie. The two exchange pleasantries as the pretend jihadi transfers to O’Keefe’s American-piloted craft.
“On August 17 we stole Ebola from a lab in Liberia,” he says in the script. “We took the bandages and the bedsheets and then we covered ourselves in it and hoped that we’d get infected.”
“The incubation period is about 21 days, and it’s been about – 21 days.”
Staring into the camera, O’Keefe clarifies that the terrorist, his ricin and his Ebola-soaked linens are make-believe – but warns that “anyone can cross this border. You could cross in a Jet-Ski if you wanted to.”
“You could import weapons, you could import whatever you wanted to, because there’s no detection on our borders.”

Democratic Senators said Monday the Constitution must be amended, because people like Charles and David Koch must be stopped from flooding TV with negative ads Americans don’t want to see.
“A handful of super rich donors and giant corporations are now flooding our elections and determining entire narratives of closely contested races,” Robert Weissman, president of Public Citizen, said in a press conference Monday. “The American people are furious with the state of campaign finance in this country. They can’t stand the negative advertisements that are dominating the airways.”
The proposed amendment, sponsored by Democratic Sen. Tom Udall, would give Congress broad power to shape campaign finance laws. It would effectively overturn the Supreme Court’s 2010 ruling in Citizens United v. FEC and 2014 ruling in McCutcheon v. FEC, which struck down laws restricting when corporations and unions can spend money on elections, and how much individuals can donate to candidates in a two-year period.
“Why do people like the Koch brother’s spend hundreds of millions of dollars?” he continued. “If you understand what they stand for, and that is to end, do away with social security, do away with medicare, do away with medicaid do away with the concept of the minimum wage, do away with the environmental protection agency — that is the struggle. They have an agenda.”

There was no mention how they would still allow Liberal donors like George Soros, Peter Lewis, Michael Bloomberg, Warren Buffett, Pierre Omidyar, Tom Steyer and many others to continue doing the exact same thing they whine about the Koch brothers doing, but there will sure to be some loophole to allow just that.
An Atlanta hospital is preparing to receive its third Ebola patient Tuesday after successfully treating two other American aid workers for the virus that has killed thousands in West Africa.
Emory University Hospital said that the patient, whose name has not yet been released, was expected to arrive sometime Tuesday and would be treated in its isolation unit. Last month, Dr. Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebol were released from the same hospital after recovering from Ebola.
Air Force spokesman Lt. Col. James Wilson said the patient, as in the prior two cases, would be flown into Dobbins Air Reserve Base outside Atlanta.
The patient is believed to be a doctor who had been working in an Ebola treatment center in Sierra Leone. The World Health Organization (WHO) said Monday that the doctor was in stable condition in the country’s capital, Freetown, and would be evacuated. The State Department confirmed that the doctor was from the U.S.

In the deadly force experiments participants (85 percent white) face a life-sized HD video screen on which the stance, clothing, hand motions, objects being held, and race of suspects can all be modified. The subjects are hooked up to brain wave measuring devices and can respond using a laser gun. The press materials from Washington State University detailing the results report:
Participants in an innovative Washington State University study of deadly force were more likely to feel threatened in scenarios involving black people. But when it came time to shoot, participants were biased in favor of black suspects, taking longer to pull the trigger against them than against armed white or Hispanic suspects…
[WSU researcher Lois] James’ study is a follow-up to one in which she found active police officers, military personnel and the general public took longer to shoot black suspects than white or Hispanic suspects. Participants were also more likely to shoot unarmed white suspects than black or Hispanic ones and more likely to fail to fire at armed black suspects.
“In other words,” wrote James and her co-authors, “there was significant bias favoring blacks where decisions to shoot were concerned.”
When confronted by an armed white person, participants took an average of 1.37 seconds to fire back. Confronted by an armed black person, they took 1.61 seconds to fire and were less likely to fire in error. The 240-millisecond* difference may seem small, but it’s enough to be fatal in a shooting.
This hesitation occurred even though the electroencephalograph generally identified brain wave patterns indicating significantly greater threat responses against black suspects than white or Hispanic suspects.
