Free Ebola: Obama Demands End to State Ebola Quarantines
Frontpage Mag ^ | 10/25/2014 | Daniel Greenfield

Posted on 10/26/2014 7:35:35 PM PDT by SeekAndFind

It’s bad enough that Obama rejects an Ebola travel ban because he thinks we need more Ebola, but he’s attacking Democrats and Republicans who are doing the responsible thing by enacting quarantines.

The Obama administration has been pushing the governors of New York and New Jersey to reverse their decision ordering all medical workers returning from West Africa who had contact with Ebola patients to be quarantined, an administration official said on Sunday.

But both governors, Andrew M. Cuomo of New York and Chris Christie of New Jersey, stood by their decision, saying that the federal guidelines did not go far enough.

“It’s too serious a situation to leave it to the honor system of compliance,” Cuomo said of the decision.

Ever since Mr. Cuomo, a Democrat, and Mr. Christie, a Republican, announced the plan at a hastily called news conference on Friday evening, top administration officials have been speaking with Mr. Cuomo daily and have also been in touch with Mr. Christie, trying to get them to rescind the order.

But in that time, two more states – Illinois and Florida – announced that they were instituting similar policies.

A senior administration official, who did not want to be identified in order to discuss private conversations with state officials on the issue, called the decision by the governors “uncoordinated, very hurried, an immediate reaction to the New York City case that doesn’t comport with science.”

What exactly is that anonymous official’s background in science? Same as Joe Biden’s Chief of Staff/Obama’s Ebola Czar?

Quarantining people who are potentially infected doesn’t comport with science? Please tell me more, Guy Who Got This Job Because He’s the Brother in Law of a Campaign Donor.

The decision to institute a mandatory quarantine came after a New York doctor, Craig Spencer, received a diagnosis of Ebola on Thursday, having contracted the virus while working in Guinea for Doctors Without Borders. He is being treated at Bellevue Hospital Center, where his condition has worsened, an expected development as the virus replicates and spreads through his body.

But it wouldn’t be a media pile on without the usual idiot showing up to fight a travel ban.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute for Allergies and Infectious Disease, said it was vital not to do anything that might interfere with the flow of health workers to West Africa.

“The harm is that it is totally disruptive of their life. We want them to go because they are helping us to protect America to be over there,” Dr. Fauci said on CNN.

No they’re not. They’re helping Africa. And that may be a noble thing, but it’s endangering America.

Obama doesn’t prioritize America over Africa. American leaders should.

States controlled by both parties need to tell Obama where to stick his ebola.

If none of those doctors want to accept a quarantine on the way back, they shouldn’t be trusted to be a doctor, period. If a disease can make people really sick, and you swore as a doctor to save lives with as little harm as possible, by all means, do the quarantine, I would like to see who the real doctors are, who are willi to take the inconvenience after riskin your own life.

King Obama is doing his very best to get Ebola infected people mingling with the general population and these turncoats are upsetting his plans.

What is President Obama's relentless obsession with bringing more ebola into this country?
He clearly failed Pandemic Prevention 101 in college.

Bring Out Your Dead

Post to me or FReep mail to be on/off the Bring Out Your Dead ping list.

The purpose of the “Bring Out Your Dead” ping list (formerly the “Ebola” ping list) is very early warning of emerging pandemics, as such it has a high false positive rate.

So far the false positive rate is 100%.

At some point we may well have a high mortality pandemic, and likely as not the “Bring Out Your Dead” threads will miss the beginning entirely.

*sigh* Such is life, and death...

Mr. President, please shut up and get back out, on the golf course.

Thank you.

HIV and EBOLA: How Political Correctness Will Get You Killed!
The ongoing – and expanding –Ebola situation and how it’s being handled (or, more accurately, NOT being handled) has a parallel with the HIV panic of a number of years ago.
It may ALSO be another manifestation of the schizophrenic nature of the hard leftists who unfortunately sit at the levers of power in this country and whose double-mindedness should now be clear to all but the dullest among us.
Allow me to explain.
A San Francisco (where else?) based and HIV infected “leader”of the homosexual community began a serious campaign encouraging fellow HIV carriers to attempt to bypass or defeat the donor screening process and actively donate into the national blood supply. When pressed as to his justification for jeopardizing the entire nation, he declared that if HIV spread out into the “straight” community, it would almost certainly catalyze and accelerate the search for a vaccine.
Am I the only “conspiracy buff” to see the similarities between that and what’s going on today vis-a-vis Ebola?
I hadn’t thought about this angle until I heard Rush recently ranting about some author who’d written that because Liberia was founded by former slaves who returned to Africa, it was our unfortunate institution of slavery that is directly responsible for Ebola in the western nations of Africa. (Please note that I stop FAR short of the recent utterances of Calypso Louie Farrakan who claims that Ebola was created by evil white men to kill blacks!)
But I digress. That reasoning that America is responsible for Ebola – if it can be called “reasoning” – holds that it is America’s place to come to their rescue with a “cure”. And how better to “catalyze and accelerate” that process than to INFECT as many native born Americans HERE with the disease as possible?
Now here’s where the schizophrenia comes into the picture:
There is a growing group of folks who believe that the earth cannot support the current population approaching 7.3 billion. The bulk of them are in the same leftist camp as those now directing the present halfhearted “effort” against Ebola. Many of them are one and the SAME people directing the Ebola thing! The most radical of them embrace the words of a speaker at an early green movement/save-the-earth rally in California. Odd coincidence that, aye? He declared that “Man is the ultimate DISEASE of nature.” He got a standing O for that line!
From that meeting and others still being conducted, the greenies now believe that the 7.3 billion MUST be reduced to around 1 billion or less. And which members of which nations, ethnic groups or races are “eliminated” is irrelevant – so long as THEY are excluded!
Scriptures informs us that “A double-minded man is unstable in all his ways.” The writer must have known a fair number of the leftists of his day.
Back to my question.
If, on one hand, the leftists are sincere in their effort to SAVE THE EARTH from overpopulation, why would they attempt to save the victims of Ebola and allow them to come here?
Could it be that allowing them to come here with the disease (and sending 3,000 potential military carriers THERE to bring it back with them) while portraying these actions to the noinfo masses as the compassionate thing to do is part of the same scheme attempted earlier by the HIV crowd?
I suggest that we prepare ourselves for the spread of the this 60% to 90% fatal disease among the population of this nation. (This may have been the reason for the Homeland Security “drills” about some “zombie apocalypse”.) This IS, after all, the same America that is hated by Obama and the One World leftists now in control here as the source of every evil committed in the rest of the world and for which evils it must be properly punished?
Do I really think these miscreants – living in their sanitized and safe gated “compounds” — would do that?
After witnessing 6 years of this gang’s criminal behavior, I absolutely think that!
Dick “If THEY really ARE out to get you, it’s NOT paranoia” Bachert
PS: With respect to the controversy concerning ebola’s ability to be “airborne”, last time I checked the stuff that is emitted from one’s nasal passages during a sneeze is mucosa (the polite word for snot) and, inasmuch as it came from the body, I suspect it would qualify as a “bodily fluid”.
Given that, does it not follow that if another person were to catch one of those sneezes full in the face, eyes, nose, mouth or somewhere else where an opening in the skin were present, the virus could be introduced into that person’s body?

Obama is intent on implementing his one world/no borders ideology. He cares little of the harm that will come to the American nation and the American people.

Could thing Obola imported all those "unaccompanied children."

If it weren't for their votes, the Democrats would lose every seat they hold.

Start spreading the ooze

I want to infect a part of it
New York, New York

These African shoes
They are longing to stray
Right through the very heart of it
New York, New York

I want to pass out in that city
That doesn’t sleep
And find I’m quartentined still
Top of the heap (of dead bodies)

My E-bo-la blues
They are melting away
I gonna make a pan-dem-ic
In old New York

If I can take it there
I’ll take it anywhere
It’s up to you

I would like one of these State leaders to go on TV and say that ‘The People’ voted for me to make tough decisions in defense of the people of that state and that to do any less would be a dereliction of duty and would be putting ideology over and above the safety of the people of his state.

I would love to see the head spinning that would result from that!

Break out the popcorn. NY Democrats who actually get it and want to protect their people versus an incompetent oligarch.
And unlike the liberals who snickered and said Texas deserved its ebola scare or even blamed the problem on a for profit hospital (thus saying the solution is socialized medicine), this is liberal versus liberal, revealing Democrats who oppose Obama for the sake of their lives.
