Here we have a U.S. President, Barack Obama, or as he is euphemistically known now as President Obola, playing golf while the United States starts to burn from the Ebola virus being brought inside its borders. El Presidente does not want to close the borders or stop incoming flights from Western Africa, because it is too politically incorrect, and because it would basically kill his agenda for illegal immigration amnesty that would cause millions of illegal immigrants from Central and South America from pouring over the borders into the United States to become parasites on our taxpayer-funded welfare system. This, so he could garner millions of more voters who would vote Democrat to get the free entitlements, and destroy the Republican party and conservatives for generations.
It is well known that the Ebola virus is present in high concentration in all the body fluids, including the sputum and saliva, of an Ebola victim. So, while the virus may not be airborne, it certainly can be transmitted if someone is exposed to the aerosol spray, emitted by a cough or sneeze, from an infected individual. And, as the reservoir of infected individuals increases, as it certainly has done in West Africa, the likelihood of spread by this mode increases.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, was forced to admit that this was true, but continued to downplay the danger of any such occurrence in the U.S., insisting that we would never experience more than a few isolated cases of Ebola here, and that anyone who did present with symptoms would be hospitalized immediately. He said he doesn’t want to quarantine West Africa–because it would be discriminatory (he didn’t actually say it, but he strongly inferred it), and could cause unrest in such a country where the people would start to panic that that they are being shut off from the rest of the world. Duh!
However, the Duncan case proves otherwise. The WHO has issued an advisory admitting that although Ebola was not, to anyone’s current knowledge, airborne, it could be spread by sneezing.
Gen. John Kelly, the head of the U.S. Southern Command (who also headed up the U.S. response to the Haiti earthquake), speaking on “Emerging Challenges in the Western Hemisphere” at the National Defense University, raised the reality that there was no way that the “horrific” Ebola disease would be contained in West Africa, and that when it comes to the Western Hemisphere, “much like West Africa, it will rage for a period of time,” because many countries also have very little ability to deal with an outbreak.
Kelly pointed out that the same crime syndicates that run drugs also run the people-smuggling rings which use Central America for transit, serving as an exacerbating factor for the spread of Ebola. If Ebola gets into Guatemala, Honduras, or El Salvador, it will cause mass panic and migration, he said. “There will be mass migration into the United States. They will run away from Ebola, or if they suspect they are infected, they will try to get to the United States for treatment.” He dismissed the idea that we could seal our borders, calling instead for an approach that addresses the absence of health facilities, schools, and basic infrastructure from entire areas of the region.
There is no escaping the fact that the situation is very grim and that it is worsening. While there is no evidence at this time that the Ebola virus was cooked up in some British laboratory, we do know that the policies of the Anglo-Dutch Empire, as implemented by international financiers, have intentionally created the conditions that have given rise to this catastrophe.
One would say, “This is all part of the New World Order’s sick plan for de-population of the World to controllable levels.” And, that person would be called a conspiracy theorist nut, or crackpot. Really? I think that attitude is changing by the day.
Ebola knows no boundaries, and it doesn’t know politics. It kills at a rate of 60-90%, depending on which strain is involved. The World Health Organization (W.H.O.) has just recently found cases of Ebola in Western Africa where the incubation period is up to 42 days, not the 21 days everyone is being told. Recent studies conducted in West Africa have demonstrated that 95% of confirmed cases have an incubation period in the range of 1 to 21 days; 98% have an incubation period that falls within the 1 to 42 day interval, the WHO situation assessment said.

Other medical findings is that you don’t have to have a temperature to have Ebola, you don’t have to be vomiting, or having diarrhea to have Ebola symptoms. The national nurses’ associations and unions are up in arms about being thrown to the wolves on this, because they’re not getting protective gear, they’re not being told what protocols to follow, and they’re not being given any training to handle Ebola patients. And, the CDC chief, Thomas Friedan, appointed by Obama, and the Obama administration, are covering up and downplaying these new developments.
Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital bungled the first US case of Ebola. Guess why? Texas Health revealed in a statement that a procedural flaw in its online health-records system led to possibly deadly mis-communication between nurses and doctors. The facility sent Ebola victim Thomas Duncan home despite showing signs of the disease only to admit him with worse symptoms three days later.
Mysteriously, after taking special care to get its facts straight before releasing its statement, the hospital backed off a day later. The very specific communications flaw in the medical-records software which apparently had prevented some staff from accessing Duncan’s travel history from Liberia suddenly disappeared. Texas Health contracts with Epic Systems for its electronic-medical-records (EMR) system and the Dallas hospital isn’t the only client that has complained about its costly information-sharing flaws and interoperability failures.
Epic was founded by billionaire Judy Faulkner, a top Obama donor whose company is the dominant EMR player in the US health-care market. The firm’s Top 10 PAC recipients are all Democratic or lefty outfits, from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (nearly $230,000) to the DNC Services Corp. (nearly $175,000) and the America’s Families First Action Fund super-PAC ($150,000).
Faulkner, an Obama campaign-finance bundler, served as an adviser to David Blumenthal. He’s the White House health-information-tech guru in charge of dispensing the EMR subsidies that Faulkner pushed President Obama to adopt. Faulkner also served on the same committee Blumenthal chaired. Epic and other large firms lobbied aggressively for nearly $30 billion in federal subsidies for their companies under the 2009 stimulus package.
Then there’s this: Did the United States intentionally deny Duncan an Ebola treatment that could have saved his life? By now you know the story of two American aid workers whose lives were saved this summer with doses of the anti-Ebola drug ZMapp. They seemed to bounce back within days after ZMapp treatment began. But when Duncan took sick, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention head Thomas Frieden claimed there wasn’t a drop of ZMapp left on the planet. He claimed it was “all gone” and “was not going to be available any time soon.”
Except no one seemed to tell the Norwegians. Because according to the country’s national health agency, a dose of ZMapp is on its way to Norway… RIGHT NOW… to help a sick aid worker who took ill DAYS after Duncan. This is allegedly the “real” last dose of the medication.
The world wasn’t out of ZMapp, as it turns out. The world… or at least some folks in very high positions of authority… simply decided that Duncan wasn’t going to get any. He was put on a highly experimental drug brincidofovir, an unproven medication that had just recently received emergency FDA approval, and was dead a couple days later. There could be lots of reasons a Norwegian aid worker is getting the last ZMapp dose instead of Duncan. But let’s not overlook the most obvious. She’s a heck of a lot more sympathetic.
There aren’t going to be any elementary schools named after Duncan, who allegedly lied his way into America and would have been prosecuted in Liberia. Lord knows the damage he could have caused — or perhaps already did. Sympathies for Duncan don’t run high. If someone decided to give ZMapp to an aid worker instead of Duncan, maybe it was even the right decision. But Duncan’s case still demands answers. Why were we told there were no doses of ZMapp available? Who decides who gets the drug and who doesn’t? It’s time for us to get a peek behind the curtain. Let’s just hope we don’t find some government bureaucrat playing God. As U.S. Vice-Presidential candidate Sarah Palin was lambasted for calling Obamacare’s bureaucrats “death panels”, maybe she isn’t too far off the mark.
Top U.S. doctors and doctors from around the world are saying to stop flights from infected nations. German doctors are saying Ebola can become airborne (through sneezing and aerosolizing). The nurse in Texas, who treated Thomas Eric Duncan, who died after arriving from Liberia for treatment, is the first citizen to contract the deadly virus from inside the U.S. A second nurse who treated Duncan, after calling the CDC saying she didn’t feel good but was it o.k. to fly, was given the “green light” to fly by the CDC. There were almost 200 passengers on her flight from Texas to Ohio. And, the plane made 5 trips in total after that, without being fully cleaned.
Even as unconfirmed cases are surfacing from around the country — heightening fears that the Ebola breakout is uncontained and spreading, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and the White House are downplaying Ebola’s threat. To date they are still refusing to stop all flights directly from or with connecting passengers from Ebola-ravaged regions like Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia.
According to the Washington Post, http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/health-science/cdc-ebola-could-infect-14-million-in-west-africa-by-end-of-january-if-trends-continue/2014/09/23/fc260920-4317-11e4-9a15-137aa0153527_story.html, Ebola could infect 1.4 million in west Africa by end of January 2015. With a 70% fatality rate, that’s almost 1 million fatalities. Not only will it be killing hundreds of thousands of people, it will be embedding itself in the human population for years to come, according to two worst-case scenarios from scientists studying the historic outbreak. This number came just hours after a report in the New England Journal of Medicine warned that the epidemic might never be fully controlled and that the virus could become endemic, crippling civic life in the affected countries and presenting an ongoing threat of spreading elsewhere.
In not stopping flights, Obama and the HHS are playing “Russian roulette” with a simmering and deadly threat that could prove catastrophic to our population unless leadership is vigilant — making common-sense decisions to safeguard our people. According to Dr. Michael Osterholm, director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota, efforts to thwart Ebola have largely been dysfunctional. “Nobody’s in command, and nobody’s in charge,” he said. “It’s like not having air traffic control at an airport. The planes would just crash into each other.” Osterholm, the leading U.S. Public Health Expert declared complete failure of present U.S. measures against Ebola, and he is calling for international mobilization to avoid catastrophe. He issued a stark warning and analysis on October 14, 2014 concerning the failure to contain the Ebola epidemic. In remarks at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School for Public Health, Dr. Osterholm emphasized:
(1). The disease is spreading on virus time rather than on political or bureaucratic time and the virus has the complete upperhand. The result will be mass death. Traditional public health measures are a complete failure in the areas of Africa where it is now spreading and where there are no viable public health systems which can contain the disease.
(2). Public officials in the U.S. have engaged in a public relations campaign telling the public all sorts of things about their knowledge about the virus and how it spreads which simply are not true, purportedly to avoid scaring the public. For example, running a fever is not a sure indicator of the disease and many cases present without fever. It is unclear whether or not the virus can spread in an airborne fashion, particularly in situations of close contact, such as healthcare workers. While promising field hospitals and troops to run them, the U.S. has not fulfilled even that minimal, woefully inadequate response as the disease process on virus time rather than Washington budget cycle time. The only country which has set up a functioning hospital in the contagion zone is Cuba.
(3). Rather than public relations, the world needs a plan to address the spread of the disease to urban areas of Africa, a spread which is already beginning to happen, and a crash international effort on research and a vaccine. Dr. Osterholm particularly cited the U.S., Japan, Russia, and China as critical in the vaccination effort and in building the type of bio-hazard containment facilities which might have a chance against the virus.
As further examples of the politicization and political correctness surrounding Ebola and flights from Africa and sealing off the southern U.S. border, we have this: Remember the ban on DDT in third-world countries. The ban on use of DDT ostensibly to save avian wildlife coincides pretty closely with the emergence of outbreaks of Ebola/Marburg hemorrhagic fevers. This was because of the Marxist environmentalist wackos that Obama covets for his votes. The environmentalist wackos and their socialist liberal friends are showing a condescending reaction to this recent Ebola outbreak.
Contrast how just a short while ago they were fanatic alarmists about HIV/AIDS. Until patient #2 was identified in Dallas, they were mocking anyone worried about Ebola as some sort of prepper-wacko-rightist looney and assuring us that if you’re not drinking the mucous of an infected Ebola victim dying in a puddle of shit in a grass hut in Africa, you’re A-OK and won’t get Ebola. But that’s not how I remember them talking about AIDS! They didn’t say “Hey, if you’re not doing wild nonstop anal sex with your infected Haitian junkie friends, you’re not going to get AIDS.” Oh NO: Why, EVERYONE on the planet is at risk of acquiring HIV so we need to spend zillions of tax dollars to get the message out … even when we all knew it was mostly homosexuals, poor urban blacks, and junkies acquiring HIV.
The 1990s was nothing but AIDS ribbons, the AIDS Quilt, Princess Di holding a tiny AIDS victim, and Ronald Reagan is a MURDERER because he didn’t even MENTION the word ‘AIDS’. Now listen to the liberals. All we hear from them now is crickets, except for the very few brave Dems who want to make a laughably hyperbolic and contrived accusation of blaming Ebola on Republicans because we didn’t confirm their agitprop-spewing US Surgeon General candidate who only graduated medical school four years previous but is “certainly” qualified for the job even though his only life achievement was organizing the ‘Doctors for Obama’ PAC. The only reason they’re desperate enough to say such a thing is because polls are showing that Obama is being blamed for Ebola and Dems are about to get crushed in the upcoming elections.
It’s time to call Obama (Obola) on the carpet and say: “We’re going to hold that vote on Immigration Amnesty in the House of Representatives this Wednesday. Just like you demanded before America was worrying about Ebola. Ready for this, Mr. President? Call the Democrats in congress to pass that bill! Make your case to the American people about throwing open the borders on live TV while the split screen on the other side of the TV rolls a ‘BREAKING NEWS’ banner tape of several more possible Ebola cases being reported at random hospitals across the country. Every network would clear their programming to allow you a special address from the White House for your administration-ending gesture. Even illegal aliens in the USA would think you’re out of your mind and demand the borders be sealed and flights halted, wouldn’t they?” The Republicans have a clear chance for a major win. They would call Obama out and demand he submit amnesty for a vote, and see just how many of his Democrat cronies will vote for it.
Two-thirds of all Americans support the idea of suspending air-travel to and from Ebola-stricken countries. Dr. Friedan, however, disagrees. He believes that West Africans, even those who are infected, still have a right to visit the United States. This is ludicrous! There is absolutely ZERO reason to allow these people to fly to the United States. We have absolutely nothing to gain from this, yet we have everything to lose! The President told us it was unlikely that Ebola would ever reach our shores that turned out to be WRONG! We were told that the CDC was containing the Ebola outbreak in Dallas that turned out to be WRONG! And now, even though one infected Liberian has already made it through the checkpoints, the Obama administration has promised there’s nothing to worry about Mark my words: that will turn out to be wrong as well!
If Ebola morphs into an aerosolized form or worse, became weaponized, it would be no different than a “nuclear strike” against the United States. Americans deserve to be protected from this disease and the fact that the Obama administration continues to refuse to enact a travel ban is UNACCEPTABLE! By not protecting the national security of this country from a major health threat, it constitutes Treason and Sedition by our President.
