Here’s the inimitable Gov. Chris Christie, appearing at an event on the Jersey shore to mark the second anniversary of Hurricane Sandy, demonstrating once again the patience and calm resolve that’s the mark of a true leader. This man is presidential material, no doubt about it. Sit back and dig the optics.

Pope Francis Takes a Stand for Evolution

US conservatives are now to the right of the Pope
Religion • Views: 6,099

Pope Francis is more pro-science and anti-superstition than most Republicans: Pope Francis Takes a Stand for Evolution, Against ‘Magic Wands’.

Social conservatives in the United States who’ve been unhappy with Pope Francis’ moderation today have one more reason to be upset.

Daniel Berger reported this afternoon:

Pope Francis broke with Catholic tradition Monday by declaring that the theories of evolution and the Big Bang are real, and remarking that God is not “a magician with a magic wand.”

“When we read about Creation in Genesis, we run the risk of imagining God was a magician, with a magic wand able to do everything. But that is not so,” the pope said at the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, during a plenary meeting dedicated to evolving concepts of nature.

The pope’s remarks came earlier today in a speech to the Pontifical Academy of Sciences.

“The Big Bang, that today is considered to be the origin of the world, does not contradict the creative intervention of God; on the contrary, it requires it,” the Roman Catholic pontiff said. “Evolution in nature is not in contrast with the notion of [divine] creation because evolution requires the creation of the beings that evolve.”

Glenn Greenwald on “The Last Word:” Canadian Attacks Weren’t Terrorism

Because Canada was asking for it by being a war-mongering country

Here’s the Mighty Glenn Greenwald on the Lawrence O’Donnell show, explaining that in his view the attacks in Canada last week were not terrorism — but on the other hand, the US and Canada and Israel (he’s obsessed with Israel) are always committing terrorist acts.

I think that’s a fair description of his viewpoints. See what you think.

Nurse Amber Vinson Ebola-Free, Discharged From Hospital

Another success for US medicine
Health • Views: 13,610

Good news from the Ebola front: Amber Vinson, the second nurse who contracted Ebola through close contact with Liberian patient Thomas Eric Duncan, has now been declared free of the disease and discharged from the hospital.

Vinson is one of two Dallas nurses who was diagnosed with Ebola after treating Liberian citizen Thomas Eric Duncan, the first person to be diagnosed in the United States with the virus. Duncan, who had symptoms after flying from Liberia to Texas in September, was admitted to Dallas’ Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital but died on October 8.

The other nurse, Nina Pham, was treated at a National Institutes of Health facility in Maryland before being declared Ebola-free on Friday. She was discharged from the hospital that day and met President Barack Obama at the White House before returning home.

Vinson was initially hospitalized in Dallas and was transferred to Emory University Hospital on October 15.

Ribner said that the Emory hospital staff has learned “a great deal” about treating Ebola after having successfully treated four patients with the virus, including Vinson. They’ve learned lessons about fluid and electrolyte management and that physicians can aggressively treat Ebola patients even when they become dependent on dialysis, he said. Emory is sharing those lessons with colleagues in West Africa and across the United States, Ribner said.

Jim Hoft Repeats the Right Wing Lie of the Week: That Nurse Kaci Hickox Hid Her CDC Job

Horrible people doing horrible things to decent people
Wingnuts • Views: 16,175

Here we go again, as the Dumbest Man on the Internet, the inestimable Jim Hoft, takes the ball of lies inflated by Chuck C. Johnson and runs with it: BREAKING: Ebola Nurse’s Ties to CDC Scrubbed From Website - Is Far Left Progressive & Obama Supporter | the Gateway Pundit.

(Ever notice that everything is always “breaking” at Hoft’s idiotic site?)

Hoft is calling nurse Kaci Hickox a “far left progressive” because she registered as a Democrat and supported Obama for President. Which makes more than half the country “far left progressives” in Jim’s benighted brain.

But what he’s really trying to sell in this typically deceptive post is that Hickox is trying to hide her employment at the CDC. Why would anyone do that? It’s a good thing to work for the CDC, not a bad thing. But in the universe of the DMOTI, everything becomes a conspiracy.

Hoft makes a big deal out of the fact that Ms Hickox deleted her LinkedIn account. And it’s true, she did. Now why would she do that?

The answer is appallingly obvious: because people like Jim Hoft and Chuck C. Johnson and their legion of mouth-breathing swivel-eyed loons are stealing her photos and scouring her Internet history for something to twist and distort and smear her with.

So Kaci Hickox deleted her LinkedIn account to protect herself against these horrible people’s dishonest attacks — and then they dishonestly attack her for deleting it.

I’d advise any health worker, especially those who work with the CDC or Doctors Without Borders, to delete their social media accounts, at least until this craziness subsides. Right wingers are stalking them, and they have a right to protect themselves as much as possible.

Hoft also repeats Chuck C. Johnson’s outright lie that Hickox didn’t disclose her CDC connection in her op-ed for the Dallas Morning News, which we already showed was completely false; in fact, it was disclosed in the very first paragraph of that article, and it’s also been disclosed in many other places.

Nobody is trying to hide this. But right wing bloggers are flat out lying about it, because they know the dumbed-down masses of Fox News viewers won’t even bother to check before spreading the lies.

Saturday Night Live is so rarely funny these days, it’s a bit of a shock when they actually have skits that make me laugh — but these parodies of Matthew McConaughey’s advertisements for Lincoln cars, featuring Jim Carrey, are just hysterical.

Christie Caves: New Jersey to Release Quarantined Nurse to Home Quarantine

It’s sad that a 5 yr old might have the disease, but there’s some good news here : it appears that Christie has caved on Quarantine, and that Kaci Hickox will be released despite the atavistic anti-science fear of the GOP grandstander.

A 5-year-old boy with a fever who recently returned from Ebola-stricken West Africa is being tested for the deadly virus at New York City’s Bellevue Hospital Center, Dr. Ram Raju told CNN on Monday.

Also on Monday, a nurse who was quarantined after returning to New Jersey from Sierra Leone on Friday was ordered released.
