Exclusive: Feds Struggling to Cope With
Medical ‘Breakdown’ at the Border

ABC News, by Jim Avila

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 7/17/2014 8:58:31 AM

The federal government is so overwhelmed by the current tide of migrants crossing the border it can’t provide basic medical screening to all of the children before transporting them – often by air – to longer-term holding facilities across the country, ABC News has learned. The director of refugee health in the federal Health and Human Services Department “has identified a breakdown of the medical screening processes at the Nogales, Arizona, facility,” according to an internal Department of Defense memo reviewed by ABC News. The “breakdown” a systemic failure of the handoff of these children between CBP and HHS. Inside the government,

You mean struggling as in a pro-wrestling match? Obama is Captain Chaos.

I think Obama should be made to welcome each of these children personally with a great big hug. Of course to make it sincere he should wear no protective equipment such as a mask or gloves.

Finally, when the medical threat becomes "real" to the LSM who have no idea where these "petri dish illegal children" are being dropped off in secretive and unknown US neighborhoods, they tell the tale of possible medical "epidemics." The whole point of "immigration" is to screen for and keep out these ill people. Allowing them past a quarantine area into our nation is a criminal act. Putting them later into our schools pales to the possibilities of what our children will be soon exposed. Stop the insanity.

Talk about weapons of mass destruction. This is being done on purpose and by design. Obama is a Trojan horse and having been elected to a second term, it is now time to unleash havoc on the USA. Up til now his efforts have been along the lines of things that draw questions of his competence; destruction of the economy, the healthcare system, the rule of law, the separation of powers. Now we will see an unbridled assault on us with no pretense of being an American. He can do anything he wants because he knows the powers that be will move too slow to stop him before the damage is done. This is only the beginning.

So the next question for the intelligent would be WHY did Obama do it in this way? Why do you think? I suspect his plan is to kill off the weak and especially those whom he helped remove their healthcare. It´s a PLAN folks! Still trust them?

Our media overlords love to mainstream leftwing fanaticism. 9/11 Trutherism is no exception.

During his speech last night, President Obama declared, “ISIL is not ‘Islamic.’ No religion condones the killing of innocents. And the vast majority of ISIL’s victims have been Muslim.” It is certainly true that the vast majority of the victims of ISIS, as the group is more commonly known, have been Muslim as have been the majority of victims of other radical Islamist movements, it is not the job of any president to decree what is and is not Islam; what is and is not Christianity; and what is and is not Judaism. For all practical purposes, religion is what

Pretoria, South Africa -- Oscar Pistorius cannot be found guilty of intentionally killing Reeva Steenkamp, the judge in his trial said Thursday. The judge has not issued a verdict, and the proceedings continue. Pistorius faces other possible verdicts, including culpable homicide. Under South African law, Pistorius will not be found guilty of murder. Evidence suggests that Pistorius genuinely believed his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp was still in the bedroom, and that the person in the bathroom was an intruder, although that is irrelevant to the case, Judge Thokozile Masipa said. Oscar Pistorius cries during the verdict in his murder trial in Pretoria, South Africa. Oscar

Initial reaction to President Obama´s speech on Wednesday night was, in large part, nonpartisan. But shortly after the speech, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and former Obama press secretary/newly minted CNN contributor Jay Carney used the occasion to work out some lingering tensions. The exchange on CNN included plenty of interrupting and accusations of false facts. We would encourage people to watch it.

WASHINGTON — Homeland Security officials warned Wednesday they don’t have a full picture of the Americans and Europeans heading to Syria to train with ISIS and therefore can’t stop them from coming into the US. “We don’t have a fulsome picture in all cases,” said Jennifer Lasley, a deputy undersecretary at the Department of Homeland Security. “It does concern us,” added Troy Miller, an acting assistant commissioner with US Customs and Border Protection. House Homeland Security Committee chairman Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas) called the situation worrisome. “You don’t know what you don’t know.

A senior Homeland Security (DHS) official confirmed to Congress on Wednesday that militants associated with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL or ISIS) are planning to enter the United States via the porous southern border. Francis Taylor, under secretary for intelligence and analysis at DHS, told senators during a hearing that ISIL supporters are known to be plotting ways to infiltrate the United States through the border. “There have been Twitter, social media exchanges among ISIL adherents across the globe speaking about that as a possibility,”

Healthcare Expert: Obamacare´s ´Quiet

Dan wrote up yesterday´s Washington Post/ABC News poll, which was jammed with crooked numbers for President Obama. Most striking was the (30/55) majority deeming Obama´s presidency "a failure," along with the prevailing opinion that he´s divided the country, and his unsightly leadership score. The survey also included a dreadful (38/56) presidential approval rating on the implementation of Obamacare; support for the law itself was also underwater, with an outright majority opposed, despite this polling series´ silly question wording that omits any mention of ´Obamacare´ or the ´Affordable Care Act.´ A new Kaiser Family Foundation poll produces similar findings, with support

Six U.S. army helicopters landed in a rapeseed field in northern Poland to ask for directions after veering off course on their way back from military exercises and alarming locals on guard over tensions across the border. Five Sikorsky UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters and one tandem-rotor Boeing Co. Chinook chopper touched down near the village of Gruta, 220 kilometers (140 miles) north of Warsaw at about noon yesterday, according to local eyewitnesses. Some residents were at first spooked at the sight of the aircraft, Halina Kowalkowska, the village’s head, said by phone.

Single adults now

It’s official, we’ve become the United Singles of America! Unmarried American adults outnumber their married counterparts for the first time since the federal government began tracking that data in 1976, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. There were 124.6 million single Americans in August, accounting for 50.2 percent of the 16-and-over US population, BLS data showed. That number has been hovering just below the 50-percent mark since 2013, before finally getting over the majority hurdle this summer. Back in 1976, the unmarried crowd accounted for 37.4 percent of the adult population and it’s been trending upward ever since. Unmarried

WASHINGTON — President Obama doesn’t plan to ask Congress for explicit authorization to take out ISIS terrorists in Iraq and Syria. Asked repeatedly if the White House would seek approval for the use of force, White House press secretary Josh Earnest on Monday would only offer that the president is interested in getting “buy-in” from Congress. “As a general matter, what I can say is that the president is interested in their buy-in, is interested in a congressional debate and is interested in consulting closely with the leaders in Congress so that they feel bought in to this process and they feel

WASHINGTON — More people newly insured by Medicaid under ObamaCare are seeking treatment in hospital emergency rooms — one of the most expensive medical settings, a study released Monday concludes. The analysis by the Colorado Hospital Association found that the average number of ER visits in states that expanded Medicaid increased by 5.6 percent, when the second quarter of this year was compared with the same period in 2013. The increase was more than three times larger than experienced by hospitals in states that did not expand. The jump was also outside the range of normal year-to-year fluctuations. “When this newly insured population is

One wonders just how stupid the Obama administration thinks people are. In claiming he is only delaying his immigration amnesty announcement for the good of the people, President Obama is either lying to us or to himself. He could be lying to himself, I grant it, because for Obama to admit that he is doing something out of rank political considerations puts way too much stress on his self-image. Either way, not since I took my kids to see “Frozen” have I come across such a fanciful story. Here first, ripping several pages out of Animal Farm, is White House Press Secretary

Sen.

As we suspected, President Obama tried in his Wednesday-night speech to make it sound like he was doing something new when he, in fact, he is not. Moreover, in describing his response, he made plain that he doesn’t take the threat to the homeland seriously. For a threat his advisers say is greater than that posed by al-Qaeda after 2001, he proposed measures suitable for Yemen and Somalia. No, really — that’s the plan. For starters, the president doesn’t believe the Islamic State is a current threat to the U.S.: “So ISIL poses a threat to the people of Iraq

Berlin - President Obama´s declaration of war against the terrorist group known as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria marks a decisive break in the American constitutional tradition. Nothing attempted by his predecessor, George W. Bush, remotely compares in imperial hubris. Mr. Bush gained explicit congressional consent for his invasions (Snip) Mr. Obama may rightly be frustrated by gridlock in Washington, but his assault on the rule of law is a devastating setback for our constitutional order. His refusal even to ask the Justice Department to provide a formal legal pretext for the war on ISIS is astonishing.

Rarely has a president faced a greater challenge in establishing his credibility for a new foreign-policy move than Barack Obama did in his nationally televised speech tonight. A CNN poll earlier this week found that just 30 percent of voters thought Obama had presented a clear plan for fighting the Islamic State. While Obama now pledges to ask Congress to train and aid Syrian rebels who would fight the group, voters remember that he backed similar plans in Syria in 2013, when his advisers saw Syrian president Bashar Assad as the major threat. The new Fox News poll out today has more

President Obama just announced that he is bringing a counter-terrorism strategy to an insurgency fight. He was at pains to repeat the phrase “counter-terror” four times in a short speech. Noting that ISIL is not a state (partly because the international community thankfully does not recognize it), he declared, “ISIL is a terrorist organization, pure and simple. And it has no vision other than the slaughter of all who stand in its way.” Neither of those sentences, unfortunately, is true. ISIL is an insurgent group that controls enormous territory in Iraq and Syria that it governs. It maneuvers conventional light

Throughout his presidency, President Obama has emphasized one point while talking about Islamist extremists: They are not practicing Islam, he has said, they are perverting it. He took that a step further Wednesday night. While announcing that he´s expanding the campaign against the Islamic State extremist group into Syria, Obama said flatly that this group, which is trying to install a caliphate in the Middle East, "is not Islamic." He didn´t say they are perverting their religion; he said they´re not even part of that religion.

Qua speech, Barack Obama’s address Wednesday on the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria was surprisingly terrible: a disorganized mess, insincere and unconvincing. To appreciate just how bad and bizarre it was, compare the president’s speech announcing a new air campaign in Iraq and Syria to Dwight Eisenhower’s 1958 statement on his decision to intervene in Lebanon with 14,000—14,000!—troops. The statement contains no chest-thumping about America’s leadership in science and medicine. No pivot to the auto industry and medical research. Eisenhower simply explained what had been done, and why.
