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

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."

Former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum on Thursday criticized comments US Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) made earlier this month, in a speech that critics have said was unnecessarily confrontational toward a Middle Eastern Christian group. (snip) Cruz earned the ire of many conservatives for his speech to a group called "In Defense of Christians." During those remarks, Cruz made a point to say he would not support groups in the Middle East who are not pro-Israel.  He walked off the stage to a chorus of boos after eventually telling the crowd he wouldn´t "stand with" them if they did not "stand

Although 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue may be the most famous address in the country, that doesn’t mean everyone remembers it. At the Value Voters Summit today in Washington, D.C, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who was the Republican nominee for vice president in 2008, mistakenly referred to the White House as being located at “1400 Pennsylvania Avenue.” “Don’t retreat. You reload with truth, which I know is an endangered species at 1400 Pennsylvania Avenue, anyway truth,” Palin said. “The media’s favorite president. He just can’t stop telling lies.” It doesn’t appear that a 1400 Pennsylvania Avenue NW actually exists–but the closest

We’re being had. Again. For six years, President Obama has endeavored to will the country into accepting two pillars of his alternative national-security reality. First, he claims to have dealt decisively with the terrorist threat, rendering it a disparate series of ragtag jayvees. Second, he asserts that the threat is unrelated to Islam, which is innately peaceful, moderate, and opposed to the wanton “violent extremists” who purport to act in its name. Now, the president has been compelled to act against a jihad that has neither ended nor been “decimated.” The jihad, in fact, has inevitably intensified under his counterfactual

Washington - The parents of Michael Brown said Saturday in an interview with The Associated Press they were unmoved by the apology of the Ferguson, Missouri, police chief weeks after their unarmed 18-year-old son was killed by a police officer. Brown´s mother, Lesley McSpadden, called for Chief Tom Jackson to be fired, and his father, Michael Brown Sr., said rather than an apology, they would rather see Officer Darren Wilson arrested for the death of their son on Aug. 9. "An apology would be when Darren Wilson has handcuffs, processed and charged with murder," Brown Sr. said. The young man, who was black,

Even though Republicans may take back the Senate by running against amnesty, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush pushed amnesty legislation while stumping for North Carolina Republican Senate candidate Thom Tillis on Wednesday. Bush, according to the New York Times, reportedly said that comprehensive immigration reform "will restore and sustain economic growth for this country." And even though a recent Gallup poll found that illegal immigration is now the top concern among Republicans, Bush said that if immigration reform is "framed in that way, I don’t think there’s a big debate in the Republican Party about the need to do this."

Of all the malfeasances of William Jefferson Clinton the one that would have most justified a removal from office was not the Monica hijinks, even with the attendant lying under oath and absurd parsings of the word “is,” but the pardoning of Marc Rich — the billionaire international commodities trader and mammoth contributor to, er, Clinton. Luckily for Bill, this action occurred on the last day of his presidency, making anything like impeachment moot, even though it was an example of political corruption that would have made Boss Tweed envious. For those who don’t recall the details, here’s Wikipedia: In 1983

With the mid-term elections weeks away, many conservatives are confronting a difficult choice. Assuming there are no solid conservatives on the ballot, do we vote for establishment candidates? Or not vote at all? The reasons why some conservatives are on the fence or planning not to vote are well known. (And Democrats are loving every minute of it!) “Establishment Republicans have attacked us and I refuse to support any of them.” “I’m sick of RINO’s. They’re no better than the Democrats.” “Other than a few strong conservatives, the rest of the GOP stands for nothing.” I share these frustrations. The conversation in my head goes something

If I were a scientist, I´d stick to the Goldman Sachs principle: bet on both sides. "Believe in science, believe in God" seems to cover all the possibilities and gives you the best chance for a cheery afterlife. For a time, it was thought that astrophysicist Stephen Hawking had also left a tiny gap in his credo window for a magical deity. However, he has now come out and declared that there is no God. (Snip...) "Before we understand science, it is natural to believe that God created the universe. But now science offers a more convincing explanation."

When the U.S. military strikes, its leaders often choose colorful code names for the operation that sometimes stick in history, like Operation Overlord or Rolling Thunder or Desert Storm. Not this time. The U.S.-led air campaign against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria doesn´t have a name. "I know of no plans at this point to name it," Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby said Thursday. Since World War II, almost every U.S. military operation, large and small, has had a code name. And that name usually sticks when veterans talk about the conflicts in which they participated, such
