Humanitarian group arranging to
bring American Ebola patients
to US for treatment

Fox News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/31/2014 1:22:57 PM

The two Americans infected with Ebola in Nigeria are in stable, but grave condition as humanitarian organization Samaritan’s Purse works to bring them back to the U.S. for treatment. Yesterday, Dr. Kent Brantly, the second American stricken by the disease, was offered an experimental serum but only one dose was provided. “Dr. Brantly asked that it be given to Nancy Writebol,” Franklin Graham, president of Samaritan’s Purse said in a press release. “However, Dr. Brantly received a unit of blood from a 14-year-old boy who had survived Ebola because of Dr. Brantly’s care. The young boy and his family wanted to be

Comments:
Is this a good idea?? John Roberts just said on Fox that this is being kept "under wraps" so we don´t know where they would go. It would be the first time in the history of this country that persons with Ebola were allowed in this country. I remain shocked and stunned.

For whatever reasons, this country seems to be hell-bent towards national suicide! Evidently, the do-gooders seem to think that the nobility of bringing these people to this country trumps the safety and well-being of those of us already here!
Unbelievably stupid, short-sighted and unconscionable!

As much sympathy as I have for the victims, I wouldn´t support this. Bringing them here could endanger others and creates the possibility, no matter how remote, that the virus could get loose into society.

Obviously these patients, if they are in any condition to travel at all, would be sent to a hospital renowned for treating infectious and tropical diseases,such as Rush University Medical Center in Chicago. Charlotte has fine hospitals, but would not be equipped for treating Ebola patients like Rush is, and there may be others. I was reading a great article the other day about how Ebola patients are quarantined and treated and the precautions taken to protect everyone who has any contact with them at all.

Franklin Graham, eldest son of Billy Graham, is the president and CEO of Samaritan´s Purse.

We have to trust them to do the right thing in the right way. I´m sure they understand the risks involved. But they also know that these two Americans can receive better care, have a better chance of surviving, here. And those who care for them will learn a great deal.

I have a hunch that many deadly diseases are taken care of here without as much fanfare and without any mishaps.

The volunteers certainly deserve praise for their work going into known dangerous areas. They deserve medical care. But that doesn´t mean risk exposing the North American population to a highly-contagious disease with up to a 90 percent mortality rate. Send medical supplies to help them in Africa. All it takes is one simple mistake or a failed seam on a hazmat suit for the disease to spread.

These people have been outstanding in their charity and they were very careful working with Ebola and I am confident they will be super careful if they are moved to America. The article mentions that the special treatment is blood from a child who survived Ebola. I wish the doctors involved would consult this doctor and try this!

The doctor gave the experimental drugs to the other American patient. He is obviously a remarkable individual and an exceptional doctor. Perhaps he would choose not leave Africa as he clearly understands what the illness is capable of.

We need to cool the hysteria a bit. This disease is not contagious the way measles and the flu are. One has to have considerable contact with a sick person´s bodily fluids to be exposed.

I would rather they´d bring these people here where they can get good medical care. They are Americans.

These two will be in full isolation and under the control of doctors experienced in this disease.

This will be a lot less risky than all the chances there are that someone can get on an ordinary long distance flight and bring a dreadful disease here. And receive no medical care until it´s too late. Think about it.

I notice that the article says the other patient was given a simple transfusion from an ebola survivor! Could treatment be that simple? Yes, it could! Better yet would be "gamma globulin" derived from survivors, a nice 1950s technology, for which there is some small amount of literature suggesting it works!

We could probably develop an honest vaccine for ebola, if someone would just pony up a couple of billion dollars. Actually, the work requires a small fraction of that, it´s the testing to FDA standards that costs 99% of it. Rumor has it the vaccine exists - but it can be risky until at least *some* validation has been done.

But come on gang, we can do this, almost certainly, in several different ways. Can we get it done, or do we end up losing six billion people because we´re just too disorganized?

Feds want to build South Texas
lockup for immigrant families
Associated Press, by Will Weissert    Original Article

AUSTIN — Federal authorities want to build a South Texas immigration lockup for families after an unprecedented surge in the number of youngsters pouring across the U.S. border, a federal official said Thursday. Immigration and Customs Enforcement is proposing a residential center in the town of Dilley, about 70 miles southwest of San Antonio, agency spokeswoman Adelina Pruneda said. “Structures on the site may be used temporarily to house up to 680 residents while the new facilities are built,” she said.

The Obama administration promised swift justice after a terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi killed four Americans -- but exactly two years later, the U.S. attorney´s office wants more time to prosecute Ahmed abu Khatallah, the only suspect in custody.

President Obama began outlining a sweeping and long-term strategy Wednesday night for combatting the threat posed by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, launching what could be the biggest counterterrorism campaign of his presidency. “Tonight, I want to speak to you about what the United States will do with our friends and allies to degrade, and ultimately destroy, the terrorist group known as ISIL,” Obama said in a prime-time speech delivered from the White House.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) wants President Obama in his speech on ISIS Wednesday night to reject the jihadists’ “misappro-priation of Islamic terms and concepts,” and to recognize that the terrorist group was created by “the lack of freedom and justice in the region.” CAIR leaders plan to join other local and national Muslim leaders in a Capitol Hill viewing of Obama’s prime-time address to the nation on a strategy to counter the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS/ISIL) threat.

Or that the White House had every reason to know how dangerous Iraq was becoming but chose to suppress that information because the truth was problematic?

Ugh. It’s general election season — and John McCain is back in demand.

In this hyperpartisan age, there is one point of agreement between Republicans and Democrats on foreign policy--that is, in addition to the newfound conviction that Congress need not exercise its constitutional authority over war: namely, that there shall be no "boots on the ground in Iraq." It is a view requiring immediate clarification: there may be more U.S. soldiers fighting in Iraq, but no combat troops will be sent. President Barack Obama offered that reassurance in his addresses to the nation. His former rival, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), said the same in an interview with the BBC on Hard Talk this

For the 2008 Presidential GOP convention I was asked to narrate more than 80 percent of the videos shown over those few days. The 9/11 tribute video was something I especially wanted to do. For me, the most important issue of our 21st century is the War on Terror, specifically from that which it is engendered, radical Islam. While, of course, both conventions that year had their partisan speeches and differences, at least the nation would be united on the 9/11 tribute. I was wrong. Instead of a unanimous, heartfelt response, some on the left began to vehemently criticize and politicize the tribute.

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

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.

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.

Obama did not describe his authorization of direct military action to defeat the Islamic State terror group as a conventional war. To the contrary, in a prime-time address from the White House, he sharply contrasted his use of targeted but limited American force with the large-scale air-and-ground invasions launched by his predecessor, George W.
