CDCV chief: Ebola spread
to US ´inevitable´

American Thinker, by Rick Moran

Original Article

Posted By:fishbone, 8/9/2014 12:17:44 PM

The head of the Centers for Disease Control, Tom Frieden, told a House committee that, inevitably there will be travelers, American citizens and others who go from these three countries -- or from Lagos if it doesn´t get it under control -- and are here with symptoms." He added that he was "confident that there will not be a large Ebola outbreak in the US." Frieden did not say what that confidence was based on. The CDC has already issued its highest alert to hospitals to be on the lookout for patients exhibiting the symptoms of Ebola, but the government is keeping mum on who they are testing and where.

Comments:
Tom Frieden is an idiot.

On a second note, I wonder if this is how 0bama is going to declare martial law; i.e., after a serious outbreak. Never let a crisis go to waste ... if you cannot find one, create one.

It will be this, or war, or the illegal invasion but I´m convinced he will do it before the elections.

There seems to be an I irresistible urge to spread the disease by those in the last stages. The civil servant who had attended his sister´s funeral and then traveled to Nigeria is a classic example. When told he had the disease, he urinated on the medical staff. Isolation must be enforced.

People with attitudes like Tom Frieden, and Obama in charge, we will get diseases, terrorists, every scourge of mankind. Some people cannot do their jobs and should be fired, these two being top of the list.

He added that he was "confident that there will not be a large Ebola outbreak in the US." Frieden did not say what that confidence was based on.

Well, I can tell you what he´s basing that on: We don´t lie on the bodies of our dead and cry, we don´t drink the blood of the dead, we don´t eat bat soup, we do wash our hands as a matter of routine, we do have sanitary drinking water, and we do quarantine contagious people.

It won´t go anywhere here. But the media ever loves a scare they can hype into hysteria.

BTW - as to how the Samaritan´s Purse folks got it even though they were following proper procedure, I´ve read that the locals do NOT follow proper procedure, and that the equipment (medical facilities, hazmat suits, and the like) are vastly substandard.

Then Mexico should be worried. The US-Mexican border is essentially open.

It sounds like a paradox: we can´t prevent the spread of Ebola but that won´t lead to a large outbreak.

But the contradiction isn´t really there. In much of the world new cases will be detected earlier and transmission stopped sooner. Only if the rest of the world was like West Africa would the outlook be the same.

You can take all the precautions you want, but if we don´t control or test what is walking across the border, it will be here.
There will be no one to blame but Washington.

New Deal for Insider Spies Could

American Thinker, by Bernie Reeves    Original Article
Posted By: fishbone- 9/8/2014 11:00:54 AM     Post Reply
In the espionage business, uncovering secrets passed on to the enemy by a captured insider spy is critical to resuming normal operations. Until a thorough damage assessment is completed, intelligence agencies don’t know what data are secure, or if agents in place are safe. And while a captured insider spy routinely agrees to cooperate if prosecutors drop the death penalty, psychiatrist David L. Charney discovered that the defendant is not committed to the assessment process. He (rarely a she) knows that the U.S. has not exercised the death penalty to punish spies since 1953, when Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were

How to replace the EPA
American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson    Original Article
Posted By: fishbone- 8/12/2014 12:32:29 PM     Post Reply
Of all the regulatory deadweight on the economy, the Environmental Protection Agency is almost certainly the heaviest of the federal government’s intrusions. If voters should hand control of the White House and Congress to the GOP in 2016, structural reform ought to be the heart of the program to rescue America from the disasters Obama and the Democrats have wrought. Part of that structural reform should be replacement of the EPA with a more effective and economical institutional arrangement.

Hillary Clinton has revealed that she worked through her husband’s affair whilst he was President by making him go through an agonising ´truth and reconciliation´ process. The former US Secretary of State said that she forced Bill Clinton into South Africa-style hearings where he had to be completely honest before she forgave him. She said she was inspired by the country´s former leader Nelson Mandela and that she had to act otherwise she would remain in a mental ´prison´ for the rest of her life. Mrs Clinton, 66, has rarely spoken about her husband’s infidelity with White House intern Monica

Former President George W. Bush put together a 48 member coalition for the Iraq War in 2003. 40 of those members supported military operations and 37 provided some number troops. In April 2003, the list was updated to include 49 countries, though it was reduced to 48 after Costa Rica objected to its inclusion. Of the 48 states on the list, three contributed troops to the invasion force (the United Kingdom, Australia and Poland). An additional 37 countries provided some number of troops to support military operations after the invasion was complete. Despite these numbers the liberal media continues to push the lie

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) signaled on Sunday that Congress may hold hearings on the NFL’s handling of domestic abuse in light of the Ray Rice case, if the league does not “police” itself. “If the NFL doesn´t police themselves, then we will be looking more into it. We will -- I wouldn´t be surprised if we have hearings,” she said in an interview with CBS’s “Face the Nation.” Baltimore Ravens star Ray Rice was fired from the team and suspended indefinitely by the league after a video surfaced showing Rice punching his then-fiancee Janay Palmer in the face in an

Voter turnout during last month´s primary races was a little too good in some counties, Arizona elections officials said Friday. Some precincts in northern Arizona tallied more ballots cast than there are registered voters, the Arizona Capitol Times reported. According to officials, errors made by poll workers and elections officials in Apache and Navajo counties led to the miscalculations. Initial reports from some precincts showed a turnout of anywhere from 200 to 400 percent. In Apache County, the Puerco West precinct reportedly had 100 votes cast, but only 23 voters are registered there. The voter turnout added up to 434

The Department of Labor coordinated with the White House on whether or not to release hidden portions of former Labor Secretary Hilda Solis’ schedule as Solis battled an FBI investigation into her illegal fundraising for President Obama. New emails provided to The Daily Caller from the nonprofit legal research firm Cause of Action show the White House thanking the Department of Labor for “flagging” a public information request for “withheld” portions of Solis’ schedule. The White House then asked for the name of the conservative group making the request — information that Labor officials were eager to give up. As TheDC previously

Is a mutiny happening around President Obama? It appears possible that the president may not have made two of his most recent decisions with complete free will. The announcement that he would delay his immigration initiative until after the election and his formal announcement that the United States would take military action against the Islamic State could have been coerced. Maybe Democratic leaders in Congress and a few members of the Obama team have had it. Could it be that, after President Obama briefed Democrats in Congress on the immigration plan, they balked? Maybe the president was told that, if he

Conservative Martin Baker attended a rally in support Officer Darren Wilson in St. Louis. As news of this rally in support of Wilson spread across social media it wasn’t long before Baker’s attendance was noticed by those super tolerant liberals. Now a local New Black Panther adviser is threatening violence against Martin Baker. The Bell News reported: Mauricelm-Lei Millere is a Black Panther and New Black Panther Adviser who is assisting to organize the protests in Ferguson, Missouri. He has also recently encouraged people to commit violence on Martin Baker in a recent Facebook posting.

Former President Bill Clinton railed against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Sunday and framed the midterm elections as more broadly about defining “the terms in which we will relate to each other and relate to the rest of the world.” Speaking at Sen. Tom Harkin’s (D-Iowa) annual steak fry fundraiser, Clinton said while much had improved in America, one problem still prevailed: “We don’t want to be around anyone that disagrees with us.” "We’ve got to pull this country together to push this country forward,” he went on to declare.

There’s a lot of competition for Barack Obama’s biggest lie. The man who could assure the American public with a straight face over thirty times that they could keep their doctor under his health plan, when he knew that to be completely false, is one hellluva fibber. But execrable as that serial prevarication may have been, it doesn’t hold a proverbial candle to his most recent whopper — that the Islamic State is not Islamic — not to mention its corollary, or perhaps subsidiary lie, that real religions do not indulge in murder. Islam has been doing that pretty much straight
