100 medical staff infected, over 700 dead. Bring them to the U.S. What could go wrong ?

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

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

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."

Flashes of disagreement over how to fight the Islamic State are mounting between President Obama and U.S. military leaders, the latest sign of strain in what often has been an awkward and uneasy relationship. Even as the administration has received congressional backing for its strategy, with the Senate voting Thursday to approve a plan to arm and train Syrian rebels, a series of military leaders have criticized the president’s approach against the Islamic State militant group. Retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, who served under Obama until last year, became the latest high-profile skeptic on Thursday, telling the House Intelligence Committee

But, he says, “I am sure of my position…here is a simple truth that many of us seem to resist: living too long is also a loss.

Devastating. That´s really the only way to describe Politico´s piece on DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. (I hereby nominate her for Worst Week in Washington.) (Editor´s note: Three words -- Joseph. Robinette. Biden.) Based on interviews with DNC staffers -- both former and current -- the piece described Wasserman Schultz as something of a modern-day Tracy Flick: over-eager, disloyal and not shy about promoting her ambitions. It would be fair to say that she sounds like, well, a lot like other politicians. And this would be accurate.

The anti-war president has finally found a way to wag the dog without upsetting his liberal base and war-weary electorate. Despite the beheading of two Americans, establishment of an Islamic caliphate, direct threats to the U.S. homeland, and the destabilization of the entire Middle East, Obama refuses to acknowledge that we are at war with barbaric Islamic jihadists. And he refuses to authorize the requisite boots on the ground. However, Obama just discovered his pre-midterm election method of wagging the dog -- distracting from his incompetent and dangerous response (or lack thereof) to the real threats to America’s national security

The U.S Senate passed a bill Thursday evening that will give President Barack Obama the authority to arm moderate Syrian rebels, which is a key part of his plan to fight the jihadist group Islamic State (also known as ISIS and ISIL). Shortly after the Senate passed the bill, which was passed by the House on Wednesday, Obama spoke from the White House. "I´m pleased that Congress, a majority of Democrats and a majority of Republicans in both the House and Senate, have now voted to support a key element of our strategy," Obama said.

(Video) Kerry responded: “If you’re more comfortable calling it a war against this enemy of Islam then please do so. We’re happy to call it that.” So its official: America is at war with the enemy of Islam. However, strange bedfellows arise if the Obama administration so chooses to uphold Kerry’s claim that we are at war with the enemy(s) of Islam. The following displays that Secretary

Someone forwarded this article to me, “Why Are Republicans Suddenly Leaning Left?” The article cites numerous examples of the GOP obviously believing it must embrace at least lukewarm Liberalism while backing away from Conservatism to win elections.The article mentioned that Mitt Romney avoided saying “Republican” in an ad supporting Scott Brown’s Senate run. Romney said in the ad referring to Brown, “will buck his own party to do what’s right for New Hampshire.” Romney’s statement implies that Conservatism can be mean, but rest assured that Brown will push

A man who’s a better speechwriter than his speechwriters, a better political director than his political directors, and who knows more about policy than his policy advisors must surely also be a better general than his generals, no? The U.S. military campaign against Islamist militants in Syria is being designed to allow President Barack Obama to exert a high degree of personal control, going so far as to require that the military obtain presidential signoff for strikes in Syrian territory, officials said. The requirements for strikes in Syria against the extremist group Islamic State will be far more stringent than those targeting
