New fears Ebola virus is spreading
CNN, by Jake Tapper

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 8/6/2014 6:38:20 PM

As the number of deaths linked to that widespread Ebola outbreak continues to rise, there are new concerns that the killer virus is spreading. The World Health Organization is looking into reports of new Ebola related deaths in Nigeria and Saudi Arabia. There have been 45 newly confirmed deaths in the past two days, bringing the death toll to 932. Europe is also dealing with its first Ebola patient, a Spanish priest who reportedly contracted the disease in Liberia is now being treated in Madrid. The National Institutes of Health´s Dr. Anthony Fauci weighs in on the outbreak, and lays out how to

The stuff of nightmares, an overactive imagination, or the plot of a new novel (feel free to borrow and expand on the idea):

Ebola is rare and airplane crashes are rare BUT- what happens if an unscreened case on an airliner entering the United States is involved in a crash? Survivors are screened for anything but Ebola and sent home. Fatalities leak all over the place and screening for cause of death may be a little cursory.

What happens next?

Ebola is a blood born or body fluid passes virus. It makes me nervous having open borders, but not because of Ebola.

Why hasnt Obama been concerned with the Hiv/ aids epidemic in Africa?

This is a ginned up excuse to transfer Americas wealth ro despots in Africa.

Virus´ mutate! This is NOT fiction.

At some point in time, Ebola was NOT an airborne disease, however one only has to research HIV´s ability to mutate and acquire drug resistance to realize that Mother Nature can do whatever she wants.

Earth Abides, but maybe not the human race.

Just a few days ago ,because conservatives brought attention to what we should do about Ebola, the left wing lectured us not to panic in a condescending manner. Today the CDC goes to battle stations and the left steam media look like the idiots they are. The are as dumb as rocks and the government is lying. Bank on it.

Billions will not change behavior.

In this day of easy air travel, terrorism, carelessness borne of Political Correctness, fear that the ebola contagion will spread beyond West African states is not an irrational fear.

Also, it is a virus. It´s my understanding that viruses mutate. The influenza virus changes from year to year; so does the AIDS virus.

Isolation is the most effective means of containing the outbreak, but how do you quarantine entire nations?

When asked by the insufferable Obama lover Julie Pace from AP today at that news conference, Obama said "Ebola can be controlled and contained very effectively if we use the right protocols.” As if he knows anything about it.

Add this to the very long list of reasons why he should be impeached. He never should have allowed them to enter this country. We have disease ridden illegals flooding over the borders and now this. He clearly doesn´t give a damn about the security of the American people and these very dangerous health threats. Dr. Ben Carson said today on Cavuto that they never should have been allowed into the country.

Hong Kong Protests Are Led

Freedom: Hong Kong´s protests for democracy are clearly read as a danger to the communist tyrants in Beijing. They underscore that this is the land that Milton Friedman once used to teach Americans about free markets. How else can you explain 17-year-old Joshua Wong, leader of the biggest challenge ever mounted against the gray men ruling Beijing? The gangly bespectacled leader of the peaceful protest megawave wasn´t even born when the Berlin Wall fell or Tiananmen Square´s democracy protesters were massacred by China´s communists in 1989.

Regulation: It sounds like the punchline to a bad joke: Former Fed chief Ben Bernanke was recently turned down to refinance his mortgage. If the nation´s former top bank regulator can´t qualify, something´s very wrong. ´Just between the two of us," Bernanke told Moody´s economist Mark Zandi at a recent conference, "I recently tried to refinance my mortgage, and I was unsuccessful." Though played for laughs, it was no joke. "I´m not making that up," Bernanke said. "I think it´s entirely possible (lenders) may have gone a little bit too far on mortgage credit conditions."

SAN FRANCISCO -- The family of a California teenager who was declared brain-dead after suffering complications from sleep apnea surgery is seeking an unprecedented court order declaring her alive, the family´s lawyer said Thursday. Attorney Chris Dolan said doctors at the non-profit International Brain Research Foundation have found signs of brain functions after running a series of tests on the girl at Rutgers University last week. The discovery came months after three doctors, including one appointed by a judge, declared Jahi McMath, 13, brain dead and Alameda County issued a death certificate after her Dec. 9 surgery went awry.

BEIJING -- Democracy and the rule of law are interdependent, and a democracy without the rule of law will only bring havoc, says a commentary to be carried by Saturday´s People´s Daily. In recent days, protests have been staged in Hong Kong in the name of seeking "real universal suffrage," causing traffic jams, less tourists, the stock market plunging and the suspension of schools and stores. "All these chaotic scenes have caused worries and irritation among Hong Kong citizens," says the commentary on the flagship newspaper of the Communist Party of China Central Committee. According to the article, the so-called "Occupy Central" protests

The head of the Mormon Argentina Buenos Aires West Mission, US citizen David Paul Robertson, was kidnapped, robbed, and finally released by armed men that attacked him while he was driving in Ciudadela, in Greater Buenos Aires. The 52-old religious leader was ambushed as he drove his vehicle near two main avenues by four gunmen who took him hostage in his own car and robbed him. They took his wallet, mobile phone and a notebook and drove him off to another neighborhood, in Buenos Aires City, where Robertson was finally released unharmed.

Obama´s ´Refugee´ Designation
Nothing But Politics

Politics: President Obama has declared 4,000 illegal immigrant minors "refugees" and given them the right to stay in the U.S. Why just 4,000 and not all of them? Well, it might just be that the lucky 4,000 are tied to people who can vote. As some 66,000 illegal minors, along with 240,000 larger family groups, stream across our border confident the White House won´t send them back, President Obama abruptly announced a de facto amnesty for 4,000 Central American children. He is allowing them to apply for refugee status in their home countries of El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala without the cost

An “extremist” … “a threat” … “an infiltrate.” These are the words Chinese mainland authorities, national security and pro-Beijing newspapers use to describe 17-year-old Joshua Wong. But to those in favor of freedom, Wong is a hero.He’s one of the students leading the demonstrations in Hong Kong where millions are gathered making legitimate demands for democracy. The protests were sparked after Beijing officials rejected a proposal that would allow open nominations for a 2017 leadership election last month. On Sept. 26, Wong and 12 other people were arrested and dragged out of government headquarters. He was bleeding and screaming, and wasn’t

CHICAGO – Representatives of 40 churches in Illinois and other states announced Monday their support for the Sanctuary Movement on behalf of undocumented immigrants facing deportation. “The movement is gaining strength and we’re not alone in our call to the conscience of all who believe in God,” the Rev.

QUITO – Hundreds of delegates from leftist political parties from 20 Latin American nations warned of threats to the process of change taking place in the region on the final day of the first Latin American Progressive Encounter (ELAP). The two-day event held in the Ecuadorean capital ended late Tuesday at the Plaza de San Francisco where a final statement of the meeting was read. The “Quito Declaration” expressed support for the progressive governments in the region and rejected intervention by “neo-colonialist powers” in the processes of change occurring there.

Happy people who buy as necessary. That is Venezuela, according to the last definitions provided by government spokespersons. The assertion implies three things: Venezuelans are happy; Venezuelans buy; Venezuelans buy as necessary. All that is a vision of success, we infer, in socialism. For 16 years, all that Venezuelans have heard is that, whereas, in fact, they face the same mess, aggravated though, that has become Venezuela. The slogan of the government officer who refers to happy Venezuelans buying as necessary also implies that happiness can be reached very easily: going to the supermarket and buying as necessary. Anything else, thanks

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow.

In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

What on earth is an ohbee-guynee? Apparently it is a weird Obamaspeak pronunciation of OB/GYN (pronounced oh-bee-gee-why-en). For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts. When President Obama announced the departure of Eric Holder from his position as attorney general, he also mentioned his “good friend,” the AG’s wife, Dr. Sharon Malone, and he called her an “ohbee-guynee.” (snip) it almost seems as though someone raised in a fantasized USSR training camp for deep cover agents was inserted into the identity of Barack Obama and loosed upon

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him.

I’m always sceptical when I hear scare-mongering claims about diseases. From bird flu to SARS, we’re repeatedly told it’s going to be the new Plague that will wipe everyone out and then…it doesn’t. Probably because the scare-mongering itself makes people take it seriously enough to prevent it spreading. But there is something very sinister and frightening about this Ebola outbreak, which has so far infected 7,100 and killed 3,300.

The First Lady appeared at the Strand Theater Friday to stump for Martha Coakley´s campaign for Governor of Massachusetts. Coakley needs help badly, as even in blue, blue Massachusetts, the race between Democrat Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker is essentially a toss up.

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in
