The article talks about the rigorous safety provisions required. Most of the medical staff are African. Notorious for not following safety provisions, sterilization, etc.

I saw a photo showing a medical staff worker in full protective turnout alongside an African female "caregiver" in only gloves and her civilian clothes.

That said, I see nothing in this article about bringing more victims to America.

So our never wrong presidente imports Ebola to America starting Monday. There’s nothing like an incurable, highly infectious disease to add to our woes.

I´m not worried about the disease.

I´m worried about a CDC that has been found to be so negligent that smallpox was found stored in a broom closet.

What´s next? The Plague?

Oh, wait .. that´s happened, too ..

What is stopping it from walking across our border? That is a scary thought. In my darkest tinfoil hat moments, I wonder if our government would look the other way. They certainly have no qualms about the open border and the thousands that slip through undected. Can you imagine the panic and chaos that would result? I do not trust the government on anything. If they are willing to release thousands in the country with known communicable diseases, they already are willfully negligent and dangerously unconcerned.

This Administration doesn´t exactly have a great track record for competence and controls. In ANYTHING. So why should we be reassured by their explanations?

Given the long incubation period of Ebola it could easily spread across our country by various carriers, including anyone coming in unscreened across our wide open southern border. No, this is a potential disaster no matter what they say to calm our fears.

Another win-win for the despicable Democrats. It will cost hugely in money and suffering/death. It will cause untold anxiety and unrest in our population.. meeting some of the Alinsky criteria.. on the way to "fundamental(a Muslim word) change" for America.

How did these two care givers contract Ebola ? If they know how it spreads why weren´t precautions taken by them. How do we know that this won´t happen here? Why was this brought to our country? Between this and the little "kids?" With all their borne deceased that they carry without even being checked out and vaccines we are pretty much in a danger zone any more.

All I know is this: we have 25yo female in a semi-isolation room (we´re out of true neg airflow rooms for pts)... she´s just off a flight from the Dominican Republic last night. Threw up blood all over plane, has had escalating symptoms for days, bleeding from every orifice, and her mother insisted she get on a plane and come here. She came from a visit to her village with NO running water, sanitation. Mom and her daughter´s two babies are now sick and we can´t locate them. CDC called, and we´re waiting. She has something very contagious and unusual and she spread it all over that flight last night. This will be fun.

In starkest terms, the disease must burn itself out. For that to happen,there can be no contact for 21 days. Even after the patient is dead, contact with the body or any of its bodily fluids can transmit the disease. As usual, Tom Clancy has envisioned Ebola being used as a weapon against the US. They beat it by banning all travel. As you can imagine, that doesn´t go over well with Americans.

Just to kick this to the top again if anyone is still paying ATTENTION...we still do not know what this girl has, she has not stopped bleeding, her eyes are profusely bloodshot, she stopped vomiting blood today but continues to send it out every other way. Eyes, bladder, anal, nasal. mom is not to be found anywhere tho docs want her admitted. CDC came. Fevers, rash, LFTs elevated, no food or H20 kept down since flight from her country. yesterday, someone died after getting off a plane from Sierra Leone in Gatwick in London. Vomiting blood after appearing on flight according to lay people asymptomatic...then just died.

Current Congress might be
history’s worst at passing laws
New York Post, by Marisa Schultz    Original Article
Posted By: harleynyc- 9/1/2014 8:55:14 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON — The current Congress is on track to be the worst ever at passing laws since modern record-keeping began, with three of its lawmakers failing to introduce a single bill, The Post has learned. The divided House and Senate have managed to pass just 163 laws that garnered President Obama’s signature since the two-year term began in January 2013. At this rate, Congress will have no problem beating the previous record set during the 2011-2013 session in which 284 laws were passed. That was down from 385 laws passed in the 2009-2011 session.

Jerry Seinfeld freaks out after
his vintage Porsche is almost struck

Posted By: harleynyc- 8/19/2014 3:35:34 PM     Post Reply
Jerry Seinfeld exchanged words with another motorist in the Hamptons on Monday after she nearly backed into his prized wheels. The funnyman was sitting on a bench in East Hampton, across the street from his rare 1973 Porsche 911 RSR, when he spotted another car backing up to park in front his vehicle. But as that car got a little too close for Seinfeld’s comfort, he ran across the street and yelled at the 60-year-old female motorist to stop. The woman appeared to be frightened as she hit the brakes, and stepped out of her vehicle momentarily to hear Seinfeld’s angry words.

Jimmy Carter calls for
recognizing terror group Hamas
USA Today, by Jim Michaels    Original Article

Former president Jimmy Carter called on the West to recognize the U.S.-designated terrorist group Hamas as a legitimate "political actor" that represents the bulk of the Palestinian population. Carter made the comments in an article he co-wrote with former Irish president Mary Robinson in a new issue of Foreign Policy magazine. It was published as a cease-fire took hold Tuesday after four weeks of fighting between Israel and Hamas, which governs Gaza. In a sharply worded rebuke to Israel, Carter and Robinson said, "There is no humane or legal justification for the way the Israeli Defense Forces are conducting this war."

Employers won’t hire her. She’s been berated with epithets like “dirty Jew.” Federal agents have guarded her house because of death threats. And she’s spent hundreds of thousands of dollars defending herself against accusations she orchestrated a coverup in a scandal that has come to represent everything Americans hate about the IRS. Lois Lerner is toxic — and she knows it. But she refuses to recede into anonymity or beg for forgiveness for her role in the IRS tea party-targeting scandal. “I didn’t do anything wrong,” Lerner said in her first press interview since the scandal broke 16 months ago. “I’m

The United Nations Climate Summit will begin in New York this Tuesday, but environmental activists didn’t wait. All day Sunday, they filled the streets of Manhattan for a march that featured Al Gore, New York City mayor Bill de Blasio, and various Hollywood actors. But they certainly didn’t act like a movement that was winning. There was a tone of fatalism in the comments of many with whom I spoke; they despair that the kind of radical change they advocate probably won’t result from the normal democratic process. It’s no surprise then that the rhetoric of climate-change activists has become increasingly

Camp Edwards - Police and military officials are searching for three officers from the Afghanistan National Army who were engaged in a training exercise at Joint Base Cape Cod. Massachusetts National Guard spokesman Lt. Col. James Sahady said the three men were reported missing on Saturday night after travelling into Hyannis that day. “They didn´t report back (to the base),” Sahady said. “There is no indication they pose a threat to the public.” Police and base officials are cooperating in the search for the three men, identified as Maj. Jan Mohammad Arash, Capt. Mohammad Nasir Askarzada, and Capt. Noorullah Aminyar.

He was a leading figure in one of the biggest climate change marches to date. But it seems Robert F Kennedy Jr was not so forthcoming when it came to questions about his own carbon footprint. Confronted by a reporter asking if he would give up his phone and car, the environmental lawyer became visibly irate before grabbing the microphone and accusing her of ´destroying democracy´ as a member of the press. The interview in New York yesterday afternoon started with a conversation about the number of flyers produced for the event, which Kennedy Jr claimed was necessary to garner ´people power´.

President Obama is supporting the Secret Service in the wake of a deeply troubling incident in which a disturbed man jumped the White House fence, sprinted across the North Lawn, and actually entered the White House Friday evening. The man, 42 year-old Omar Gonzalez, had a folding knife in his pocket and had left 800 rounds of ammunition in his car not far from the White House. Gonzalez had also drawn the attention of authorities at least twice a few weeks ago — once in Virginia, when he was found with a sniper rifle, a sawed-off shotgun, and a map with

Last week, esteemed doctor and one of our ObamaCare Architect Overlords penned a column for the Atlantic that should win a Pulitzer Prize for passive-aggressive shaming. Although Emanuel claims that *he* doesn´t want to live past the age of 75, the article itself could have been a listicle titled, "Top 15 Reasons No One Over 75 Should Receive Healthcare." Emanuel even includes a monstrous but brightly colored graph that is meant to tell anyone over 75 that their "last contribution" to society likely occurred more than a decade ago. Good God.

Four teachings from Jesus

It was once said, “religion is designed to comfort the afflicted and to afflict the comfortable.” Jesus’ parables – short stories with moral lessons – were likewise designed to afflict, to draw us in but leave us uncomfortable. These teachings can be read as being about divine love and salvation, sure. But, their first listeners – first century Jews in Galilee and Judea – heard much more challenging messages. Only when we hear the parables as Jesus’ own audience did can we fully experience their power and find ourselves surprised and challenged today. Here are four examples of Jesus’ teachings that everybody gets wrong: 1.

Lois Lerner says she is no Jeffrey Dahmer. The former Internal Revenue Service official referenced the infamous cannibalistic serial killer as she broke her silence for the first time about last year’s IRS scandal. Lerner told the website Politico that she has been the recipient of threats and hate mail, describing how one person called her “the worst person ever in the United States.” “I just thought, ‘Boy, worse than Jeffrey Dahmer?’” Lerner quipped. Lerner, who led the tax-exempt division of the IRS, was forced out of the agency after she found herself at the center of the scandal over the agency’s targeting of conservative groups

Perry made his remarks in a "One-on-One Conversation" with Texas Tribune CEO and Editor-in-Chief Evan Smith at the Texas Tribune Festival, an annual event organized by the online media outlet. Breitbart Texas made several queries to Governor Perry´s press office for comment, but as of press time,

Fraternities at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut, must start accepting women and all residential fraternities must become fully co-educational over the next three years, the school’s Board of Trustees has ruled. The decision was made “with equality and inclusion in mind,” school President Michael Roth and Trustee Chairman Joshua Boger wrote in an email to students on Monday, Business Insider reported. “Our residential Greek organizations inspire loyalty, community and independence. That’s why all our students should be eligible to join them.” The school has focused on issues with Greek life ever since a woman filed a lawsuit against Wesleyan two years ago

Gen. Michael Nagata is promising to build a new force to destroy ISIS, but lawmakers worry he has been given an impossible mission. As lawmakers prepared to take a risky and fateful vote on Obama’s plan to train and equip the Syrian rebels, the man who assured them it could be done was Gen. Michael Nagata, Obama’s point man for the mission to build an ISIS-killing army in Syria. There are skeptics both inside and outside the government who doubt Obama’s new plan to arm the Syrian rebels can work. First of all, the administration has said for years that the moderate
