Obama said, "UNLIKELY" .. He didn't say "WON'T" .. He didn't give any guarantee .. Saying "Unlikely" is like saying 'Maybe Not' or 'Might Not'. Is THAT good enough for you & your familes lives? Here's what Obama & his White House officials are telling us: US official: "Our health care infrastructure in the US is well-equipped to stop Ebola in its tracks". - & Human Services Sec. Sylvia Burwell: "US has the HealthCare system to contain this disease". White House official Lisa Monaco, on Ebola outbreak: "The US is prepared to deal with this crisis.. we know how to do this". These are the same ones who 'lip-speak' for the man (Obama) who told us: “If you like your HealthCare plan, you’ll be able to keep your HealthCare plan, period! No one will take it away, no matter what. … You can keep your family doctor. Period!” “We are going to work with you to lower your [HealthCare] premiums by $2,500,” & we’ll “do it by the end of my first term as President." "Al Qaeda is on the run & their leadershi ...

Lisa Monaco, the White House's top counterterrorism adviser, announced Monday that the CIA will no longer use vaccination programs in its spying operations. Monaco addressed a letter to the deans of 13 public health schools who asked the administration to stop entangling vaccination programs with espionage activities. The CIA used a hepatitis vaccination program in Pakistan to collect DNA samples to search for children possibly fathered by Osama bin Laden. Health organizations lashed out when the agency's program was revealed, saying it lessened the possibility that citizens would seek vital medical care. RT's Ameera David has more details on the Obama administration's announcement.
Monaco says your kids are terrorists. Monaco on track to becoming head of FBI - CAN YOU SEE IT NOW THE FBI STORMING HOMES FOR YOUR KIDS - Lisa Monaco is a smart cookie, no doubt about that. And a true-blue Democrat. The Harvard and the University of Chicago Law School grad, who turns 44 in February, has climbed so steadily through the government’s national security ranks that her new job as Homeland Security and counterterrorism adviser to President Obama seems almost preordained. Rumors are flying that she may even replace Bob Mueller at the FBI before too long. Yet it’s almost certain that few people outside of Washington’s insular national security world will ever have heard of her. That’s because, unlike her predecessor John Brennan, she’s been an oiler in the machinery room of counterterrorism, not a boss man from one of the alphabet agencies -- CIA, FBI, NSA and the like. But she has had friends in high places, starting with Joe Biden, who was chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee w . ...

Washington -The United States on Wednesday designated Boko Haram network and an offshoot known as Ansaru as terror groups, bowing to months of pressure to act. The groups have spread terror in northeastern and central Nigeria and are blamed for thousands of deaths as they battle to set up an Islamic state. "These designations are an important and appropriate step, but only one tool in what must be a comprehensive approach by the Nigerian government to counter these groups," the State Department said. The shadowy groups' insurgency has claimed many lives since 2009 and triggered concern over its potential to spread across the porous borders in the region. A new UN report released Wednesday said more than 37 000 people have fled the region since the army launched a crackdown on the militants in May. White House advisor Lisa Monaco said the decision cuts "these terrorist organizations" off from US financial institutions and allows any assets held in the United States to be frozen. Nigeria welcomed the decisi ...

Lisa Monaco, Assistant to the President, Homeland Security and Counterterrorism - National Journal
Twenty-two of President Barack Obama's top advisers make the top White House salary of $172,200 per year - but there is one official who earns 30% more. It's not chief of staff Denis McDonough. Not Obama's senior adviser and close friend Valerie Jarrett. Not Cecilia Munoz, who is overseeing White House efforts on immigration reform, nor Lisa Monaco, who advises Obama on Homeland Security and counterterrorism. The best-paid person of the 460 people who work at the White House is Seth Wheeler, a senior adviser at the National Economic Council, who is crafting Obama's strategy on housing finance. One of the newest appointees, Wheeler earns $225,000, according to the annual White House report on its $37.9 million payroll released on Friday. Wheeler has been detailed to the role from the Federal Reserve where the pay scale is higher, a White House official explained. It also means he earns more than his boss, Gene Sperling, the director of the National Economic Council, who earns the White House limit of $172, ...
The House of Representatives has overwhelmingly passed a sweeping, $638bn defence bill that would block President Barack Obama from closing the US detention facility at Guantánamo Bay, and limit his efforts to reduce nuclear weapons. Ignoring a White House veto threat, the Republican-controlled House voted 315-108 for the legislation – which also authorises money for aircraft, weapons, ships, personnel and the war in Afghanistan. It must be reconciled with a Senate version before heading to the president's desk. Despite last-minute lobbying by Obama counter-terrorism adviser Lisa Monaco, the House soundly rejected Obama's repeated pleas to shutter Guantánamo. In recent weeks, the president implored Congress to close the facility in Cuba, citing its prohibitive costs and its role as a recruiting tool for extremists.

In America they are getting Top National jobs previously thought to be a preserve for the Alpha Male, White House has Lisa Monaco as the Counter terrorism adviser, CIA has its Top Position occupied by an undercover woman whom if I shared her name they may just kill you its that secretive only KG in Africa knows her name. Kenya powered by Jubilee has just confirmed that women should indeed take up their rightful position in the society Raychelle Omamo (Defense), Anne Waiguru (Devolution and Planning), powerful dockets. Not that gender is irrilevant but what am trying to say is that if Julia Pierson is the Director of Secret Service in America, then Caroline Mugure Kamau is fit to be Director Medical Services, a position Uhuru Kenyatta would like to deny her despite qualifying for the job just because they share the same dialect (sorry tribe) with the Cabinet Secretary Health James Wainaina (Health)

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Justice Department is pressing the State Department to designate Boko Haram, a Nigerian militant group alleged to be responsible for hundreds of deaths, as a "foreign terrorist organization," according to a document obtained by Reuters. Lisa Monaco, head of the Justice Department's national security division, sent a letter in January to State Department counter-terrorism chief Daniel Benjamin requesting that Boko Haram, also known as the "Nigerian Taliban," be put on the list. A Congressional source said that in the last few days, State Department representatives have lobbied Congress to try to stop legislation which would force the administration to act against the group or explain why they had not done so. On Thursday, Rep. Patrick Meehan, a Republican who chairs a House subcommittee on Homeland Security, introduced an amendment to a defense bill that does just that, after he said State officials inexplicably cancel led a briefing on Boko Haram. In several recent cases, includ ...
