Ebola outbreak update: As of today, 26th July 2014, we have 116 cumulative number of survivors, 458 confirmed Ebola cases and 153 Ebola confirmed deaths. 82 patients are currently admitted at the Ebola treatment centers in Kenema and Kailahun.
The Ministry of Health & Sanitization and the World Health Organization have established a dedicated Ebola Emergency Operations Center (EOC) at the WHO Country Office in Freetown. The EOC is co-Directed by the Minister of Health, Ms. Miata Kargbo and the WHO Representative for Sierra Leone, Dr. Jacob Mufunda and consists of leaders and partners involved in our fight against Ebola.
The EOC will serve as the Sierra Leone National Central Command and Control Center for Outbreak Response activities and meets every day. The EOC members under the leadership of the Honourable Minister of Health and Sanitation unanimously decided at the July 24th 2014 meeting that the following actions be effected immediately:
• That the World Health Organisation (WHO) and MSF to take over the management of the Kenema treatment center
• WHO and MSF to bring more experts to run the treatment center in Kenema
The WHO Director General, Margaret Chan has upgraded the Ebola response in West Africa to a Grade 3, the highest level of any emergency response. A Grade 3 involves a multiple country event with a substantial public health consequence that requires a substantial WHO country office response and substantial international partner response. This means partners could deploy resources from other countries into the region
The EOC wishes the general public and all partners working in the healthcare sector to know that Dr. Sheikh Umar Khan is responding well to treatment.

Read it and see how close reality has hewed to the plan.
There will be a full posting on Yapfest on Monday. For now, I need a roughly-accurate headcount.
Please indicate how many you will be in comments, a la the following – single = “+1”, two = “+2”, etc.
In the meantime, the date is 9 August and the location is http://gastateparks.org/Vogel .
If we run into such debts as that we must be taxed in our meat and in our drink, in our necessaries and our comforts, in our labors and our amusements, for our callings and our creeds, as the people of England are, our people, like them, must come to labor sixteen hours in the twenty–four, and give the earnings of fifteen of these to the government for their debts and daily expenses; And the sixteen being insufficient to afford us bread, we must live, as they do now, on oatmeal and potatoes, have no time to think, no means of calling the mismanagers to account; But be glad to obtain subsistence by hiring ourselves to rivet their chains around the necks of our fellow sufferers; And this is the tendency of all human governments. A departure from principle in one instance becomes a precedent for a second, that second for a third, and so on ’til the bulk of society is reduced to mere automatons of misery, to have no sensibilities left but for sinning and suffering…and the forehorse of this frightful team is public debt. Taxation follows that, and in its train wretchedness and oppression.

H/t to Maggie’s Farm for this worthwhile essay.
Tyrants always – always – come after private property.
It’s how you know tyranny is afoot.

Besides, if you vote against Vader, then you’re voting against the dark side and a guy in head to toe black. And that would be just waaaaaacissst.

If everyone on the Warren Commission had been found along rural roads gutted and burning this country would be in a different position than it is today, a position more aligned with the constitution, if that’s your party favor of the day.”

Read both the story and the paper.
The powers-that-be cannot control all that they must.
Or, as a reader has taught me:
Here comes everybody.
What I’ve Learned as an Internet Drug Dealer
1) People will use technology to have what they want.
2) Governments cannot keep up with a distributed, motivated, tech-savvy group of freedom-minded men and women.
Mandatory caveat: Drugs are bad, m’kay?
I am really digging how the black ninja suits blend ever so effectively into the terrain.

Received this AM via semaphore:
We interrupt our series on the Principles of War to bring you some thoughts
On Rightful Liberty and the restoration thereof.
A number of groups and individuals have taken up the Rightful Liberty cudgel and with good reason. It is quite possibly the best secular description of how we should live with one another and society.
Still no word from them, though, on a definable end state or how we get there.
Some thoughts on where to start:
– Abolition of federal law enforcement agencies.
– Abolition of federal departments.
– Abolition of the federal (sic) reserve.
For you secessionists, regionalists, and Balkanizers, substitute “Expulsion” for “Abolition” and you get regional thinking with local action. See also suggestions in Unity of Command.
While we’re at it, state governments, stop requesting/accepting money from D.C. and letting them use your National Guard. (Rick Perry seems to be waking up, although there is some question if TX is paying or the feds. Time will tell: Follow the money.) Grow a set and use your guard units to kick the feds out. Recall your federal politicians and deal with them as you see fit.
