Vandals Deflate Deviant U.S. Artist’s Controversial Sculpture That Sparked Outrage Over Resemblance To A Sex Toy (PHOTO)

October 19, 2014 at 9:30 am

Premature speculation?

5bfabbd254ffeda321a281e4a152300c63603bbe(AFP) A giant inflatable green sculpture was reduced to a flaccid heap on one of Paris’s swankiest squares on Saturday [Oct. 18, 2014] after vandals attacked the work that sparked outrage for its resemblance to a sex toy.

The 24 metre-high artwork by American artist Paul McCarthy, called “Tree,” was unveiled on Thursday [Oct. 16, 2014] on the Vendome Square alongside the Ritz Hotel and luxury jewelry stores, provoking a storm of mirth and outrage on social media over its resemblance to a sex toy called a butt-plug.

One man was so outraged that he slapped McCarthy three times in the face, yelling that he was not French and his work had no business on the square, before running off, reported Le Monde daily.

The 69-year-old contemporary artist is known for his controversial and ambiguous works, but even he was surprised at the reception he got in Paris, better known for its relaxed attitude toward sexual matters.

On Saturday, vandals cut the cables with which the offending “Tree” was kept in place, leaving it slumped on the pavement and a security guard with no choice but to deflate it, a police source told AFP.
An official from the FIAC contemporary art fair which put on the exhibit said the offenders had in fact first unplugged the pump that kept the structure erect.

The FIAC said it intended to resurrect the sculpture as soon as technically possible.

Shouldn’t that be re-erect?

Some say artist, I say mental patient with extreme tendencies towards deviant exhibitionism posing as an artist.

Thank a commie.

UN Admits Botched Ebola Outbreak Response: ‘Traditional Containment Methods Don’t Work With POROUS Borders’

October 18, 2014 at 10:47 am

“Failed to see some fairly plain writing on the wall.”

Add this incompetency to the mile high stack of valid arguments in favor of the U.S. defunding and withdrawing from the U.N.
Via the Associated Press:

LONDON (AP) — The World Health Organization has admitted that it botched attempts to stop the now-spiraling Ebola outbreak in West Africa, blaming factors including incompetent staff and a lack of information.

Nearly everyone involved in the outbreak response failed to see some fairly plain writing on the wall,” WHO said in a draft internal document obtained by The Associated Press, noting that experts should have realized that traditional containment methods wouldn’t work in a region with porous borders and broken health systems.

The U.N. health agency acknowledged that, at times, even its own bureaucracy was a problem. It noted that the heads of WHO country offices in Africa are “politically motivated appointments” made by the WHO regional director for Africa, Dr. Luis Sambo, who does not answer to the agency’s chief in Geneva, Dr. Margaret Chan.

Dr. Peter Piot, the co-discoverer of the Ebola virus, agreed in an interview Friday that WHO acted far too slowly, largely because of its Africa office.
Piot also questioned why it took WHO five months and 1,000 deaths before the agency declared Ebola an international health emergency in August. [...]

Ate you listening Obama? Nah, I didn’t think so.

ISIS’ Black Flag Of Jihad Flies Over The Vatican [Image]

Via The Local-Italy:

Islamic State (Isis) has published a photo of its black flag superimposed on the obelisk in St Peter’s square in the latest edition of its online propaganda magazine, ‘Dabiq’.

THIS-is-Islam 2The Photoshopped picture appears on the front cover of the fourth edition of the magazine accompanied by the headline ‘The Failed Crusade’, a reference to the US-led alliance’s latest attacks against the organization, Corriere della Sera reported on Monday.

The magazine contains an article about the fight against “Rome” and “the Romans”, terminology used to refer more widely to the West.

In the article, Isis spokesman Mohammed al-Adnani is re-quoted as saying: “We will conquer your Rome, break your crosses, and enslave your women, by the permission of Allah, the Exalted.

“If we do not reach that time, then our children and grandchildren will reach it, and they will sell your sons as slaves at the slave market.” [...]

MADNESS! Obama State Dept. Is STILL Processing Visas In Ebola Hot Zone Of West Africa At An Est. 100 Per Day!

October 17, 2014 at 10:36 am

“You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.”
Patient Zero Thomas Duncan who is responsible for spreading the deadly virus here in the United States, came to the U.S. from Liberia on a U.S. embassy issued visa. But – “What difference at this point does it make” if they are coming to the U.S. to visit family or to leech off of our healthcare system while risking the health of Americans? Heh.

Via The Daily Signal:

Despite the outbreak of Ebola, it is still possible to get a visa from the three West African countries at the heart of the outbreak, and a key congressman is demanding to know why.

Rep. Ed Royce, R-Calif., chairman of the House Foreign Relations Committee, sent a sternly worded letter to Secretary of State John Kerry about the Obama administration’s handling of the Ebola Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.

Royce said he was “deeply concerned” U.S. embassies in those countries were continuing to process visas for non-U.S. nationals despite the outbreak of the deadly disease.

An estimated 100 people per day are applying for U.S. visas at the three embassies, according to Royce. “Of course,” he added, “once these individuals are issued a visa by the embassy, they are free to travel to the United States.”

In the letter, Royce urged Kerry to contain the Ebola virus “at its source” in Africa before any additional cases reach the United States.

In related news Conservative Tree House reports:

On the same day that White House spokesperson, Josh Earnest, states the official U.S. position is to continue allowing inbound flights from the Ebola hot zone of West Africa without change or impediment, the administration announces it will enforce mandatory quarantines’ for returning U.S. troops.

#HoustonWeHaveAProblem Sign Petition In Support Of Pastors Persecuted By Jackbooted Lesbian Mayor Annise Parker

October 17, 2014 at 9:36 am


Followup to: Lesbian Mayor Declares War On Christians: Subpoenas Local Pastors’ Constitutionally Protected Sermons AND Communications With Congregants

Show the Godless fascist Mayor of Houston Annise Parker and her flunkies what American Christians are made of. Let them know that we as Christians refuse to take this sitting down. That we refuse to stand by while a government entity is engaging in the persecution of fellow Christians. That in no uncertain terms will we allow the secular left to continue to view Christianity as a ‘soft target’ (while they bow and scrape to Islam) –any longer.


(Excerpt of petition text)

Houston, We Have a Problem!

Our First Amendment protects freedom of speech and religion, which has made these significant accomplishments possible. If pastors had been silenced, if they had not been free to speak out on issues in our society, America would not be what it is today. In fact, America would not be.

houston we have a problem petitionWe live in a rich, diverse society today. A society with differing viewpoints and beliefs, a society of open discourse in which tolerance makes it possible for us to disagree with respect. We also live in a society that values equality, including the notion that everyone has the right to publicly express deeply held beliefs without fear of persecution or reprisal. People of faith – who are a significant part of America’s rich rainbow of diversity – share the same fundamental rights as other groups.

Your legal actions against a group of respected clergy members in the city of Houston constitute aggressive bullying, the very offense from which you seek to protect another community in the city. This is unconstitutional, un-American, and the very height of hypocrisy.

Faith is alive and thriving, as they have already garnered 8,757 signatures out of a goal of  10,000.

But let’s give them a number well beyond what they had hoped for. If we all join together and also share this with family and friends we could quite possibly give them a number of 6 digits or more!

(NBC DFW) Dallas nurse Nina Pham, the first person to contract the potentially deadly Ebola virus in the United States, appeared to be in good spirits in a rare, emotional video shot in her Dallas hospital room Thursday, just before she was flown to Maryland en route to the National Institutes of Health.

“Come to Maryland, everybody!” patient Nina Pham told Dr. Gary Weinstein and another health care worker treating her in the video, both of them wearing full protective suits, as the three of them became emotional. “I love you guys,” she said.
“I’m so thankful for the outpouring of love and support from friends and family, my coworkers and complete strangers. I feel very blessed, and have gained strength from their support. I appreciate everything that my coworkers have done to care for me at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas. I’m doing really well thanks to this team, which is the best in the world. I believe in my talented coworkers. I am #presbyproud!” Pham said in a statement Thursday.

Oh…My…God…CDC OK’ed 2nd Dallas Ebola Patient Nurse Amber Vinson’s Flight While Feverish (CBS VIDEO REPORT)

October 16, 2014 at 11:45 am


Via CBS:

In the case of Amber Vinson, the Dallas nurse who flew commercially as she was becoming ill with Ebola, one health official said “somebody dropped the ball.”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that Vinson called the agency several times before flying, saying that she had a fever with a temperature of 99.5 degrees. But because her fever wasn’t 100.4 degrees or higher, she didn’t officially fall into the group of “high risk” and was allowed to fly.

Officials in the U.S. have been trying to calm fears over the Ebola crisis, but time and again events have overtaken their assurances.

“Dropped the ball”? Staggering.
