Perhaps you've seen the Facebook post making the rounds -- "Are you safer now from Ebola and beheading than you were six years ago?"

ISIS aside, though suffice it to say this threat isn't ending anytime soon, a big part of the reason that Ebola has made the transatlantic leap from Africa is because of the unwillingness of a president whose ancestors hail from the continent to impose a flight ban on air passengers from nations stricken with the deadly disease.

How refreshing to hear something resembling candor in the Obama administration's public pronouncements on the threat from Ebola.

Problem is, the implications of what is being said with this newfound candor are ominous to say the least, a flabbergasted Rush Limbaugh outlined for his radio listeners yesterday.

Aww, isn't it sad when liberals turn on one another -- unless, of course, you're watching from the sidelines as a conservative, in which case, break out the popcorn!

The easily irritated Ed Schultz tore into foremost left-wing court jester Jon Stewart after Stewart committed the unpardonable offense, and only three short weeks before the midterms, of pointing out Democrats' blatant hypocrisy on big money in politics.

Those who see Leon Panetta as a stalking horse for Hillary Clinton just got some more ammunition for their argument.  Last week, Panetta helped distance Hillary from President Obama's foreign policy failures by blasting Obama for mistakes in Syria and Iraq.

But today, discussing the foreign policy issue on which Hillary is most vulnerable--Benghazi--Panetta suddenly became very forgiving.  Appearing on the Diane Rehm show, Panetta declared "nobody is to blame for Benghazi." The relevant part of the interview begins at 33:30.

New York magazine reported this week that NBC was willing to move heaven, earth and heaven yet again if necessary to corral Comedy Central's Jon Stewart to moderate "Meet the Press." Anyone who heard Rush Limbaugh's epic evisceration in response is likely to see Stewart and NBC in a dimmer light.

Limbaugh could see this coming months ago, telling his listeners in May that "comedians are now the 21st century journalists for the far left."

The New York magazine blogger says that Rush not only “cannot stop talking about” slavery but “believes that, rather than a blight on white America, it should be seen, in a world-historical context, as a point in its favor.”

Sometimes, public radio employees don’t seem to realize they rely on taxpayer support. Our former colleague Lachlan Markay of the Washington Free Beacon underlined that in a story on Congressman Chris Gibson (R-New York).

An unnamed employee of WIOX radio in the small town of Roxbury, New York (which runs NPR News programs overnight), dismissed Gibson as someone who should “find a real job like the rest of us and not live off the taxpayers [sic] money.”

Not a good sign for President Obama when his one of his most reliable cheerleaders in media turns into a skeptical fact-checker.

While MSNBC's token working stiff Ed Schultz remains reliably besotted with Dear Leader, he's also unwilling to let a misleading claim from Obama pass unchallenged. At least when Schultz is outside the narrow ideological confines of MSNBC and opining on his daily podcast.

Once again, Rush Limbaugh, aka America's Anchorman, has shown himself invaluable in cutting through the perpetual fog of dissembling that wafts from the White House.

Limbaugh responded to the Obama administration's disclosure of yet another roving band of rabid militants that threatens the West with his characteristic insight and withering sarcasm.

Even though she's long gone from the Internal Revenue Service, former director Lois Lerner is still targeting conservatives. More specifically, it's callers to Mark Levin's radio show, and by extension Levin himself, who Lerner and her husband are besmirching.

Mrs. Lerner pleaded the Fifth when testifying before Congress about abusive IRS tactics during the Obama regime in singling out and thwarting conservative non-profits, but she found a more receptive audience during an interview with Politico in which Levin's radio program was mentioned.

NPR's Jason Beaubien spotlighted a woman's "nightmare with El Salvador's abortion law" on Monday's All Things Considered. Beaubien zeroed in on the case of Christina Quintanilla, who served four years of a thirty-year prison sentence, after a dubious conviction for the death of her unborn child. He also cited unnamed "activists who are pushing to liberalize El Salvador's abortion law [who] argue that the total ban is unjust because it only applies to the poor."

The would-be scandal of alleged widespread domestic abuse in the National Football League hit its high water mark this week. It began receding when Mark Levin and Rush Limbaugh, armed with empirical data, pushed back and demonstrated that it is yet another bogus issue pushed by agenda-driven media.

Both conservative talkers cited an excellent RedState post by the diarist Bill S., titled "No, the NFL is Not a Hotbed of Wife and Child Beaters." After stating he is not a football fan, Bill S. wrote that "conventional wisdom" maligns the NFL as "full of criminals ... wife beaters, sexual abusers, murderers, rapists, etc. And the leftists are going to remind us of this every time some sort of offensive act occurs. But is this true? The truth of the matter is that the rate of criminality in the NFL is lower than that of the general public."
