At this moment, the so called President of the United States, his head firmly stuck up his ass so as to not hear the realities that are related to the Ebola virus and it's possible spread still refuses to impose a travel ban from West Africa! In other words, if we are hearing correctly, quarantines do not work and me oh my it might possibly hurt the Africans and their economy! Well in my view, that's just to damned bad!
When immigrants poured into Ellis Island they were quarantined! At the time TB was a huge danger so we took precautions! In this case, we have an ass hat of a leader who is telling us the best way to stop Ebola from coming here is to continue allowing possibly infected people into the country!
Before I go off on my tangent here, Judge Jeanine as always nails it:
"Finally, we can’t just cut ourselves off from West Africa, where this disease is raging. Our medical experts tell us that the best way to stop this disease is to stop it at its source-before it spreads even wider and becomes even more difficult to contain. Trying to seal off an entire region of the world-if that were even possible-could actually make the situation worse. It would make it harder to move health workers and supplies back and forth. Experience shows that it could also cause people in the affected region to change their travel, to evade screening, and make the disease even harder to track".
Moron alert #1: Can you see the idiocy in the statement above? " Our medical experts tell us that the best way to stop this disease is to stop it at its source-before it spreads even wider and becomes even more difficult to contain." Then in the very next breath, he feeds us an unmitigated line of bullshit as to being unable to move health workers and supplies in and mentions folks will do whatever it takes to avoid screening and so forth. No kidding!
Of course, one would think common sense says "don't let them fly in and keep it over there until a cure is found! But not this guy. No siree! Let em in! What the hell! We can stop it easier here! Actually who the hell even knows if this guy has any idea about anything as to his responsibilities to the American people!
As the Judge notes. We are sending 750 million dollars in aid as well as putting 4,000 of our troops in danger to go over there to fight this disease. In turn, there sure as hell is no reason to allow West Africans into this country until it is stopped!
Yet, instead we have our government apparently speeding up the issuance of visas as below!
"The US Department of Homeland Security is expediting visa requests from Ebola-infected countries: Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone Currently in the United States.
This notice was posted by DHS in August.
Via Doug Ross and Free Republic:
From the DHS website:
Immigration relief measures that may be available if requested include:
- Change or extension of nonimmigrant status for an individual currently in the United States, even if the request is filed after the authorized period of admission has expired;
- Extension of certain grants of parole made by USCIS;
- Expedited adjudication and approval, where possible, of requests for off-campus employment authorization for F-1 students experiencing severe economic hardship;
- Expedited processing of immigrant petitions for immediate relatives (currently in the United States) of U.S. citizens;
- Expedited adjudication of employment authorization applications, where appropriate; and
- Consideration for waiver of fees associated with USCIS benefit applications.
I also found the following (my apologies as to who the source is).
"Washington, DC – Judicial Watch has learned that the Obama administration is actively formulating plans to admit Ebola-infected non-U.S. citizens into the United States for treatment. Specifically, the goal of the administration is to bring Ebola patients into the United States for treatment within the first days of diagnosis.
It is unclear who would bear the high costs of transporting and treating non-citizen Ebola patients. The plans include special waivers of laws and regulations that ban the admission of non-citizens with a communicable disease as dangerous as Ebola.
One source tells us that the Obama administration is keeping this plan secret from Congress. The source is concerned that the proposal is illegal; endangers the public health and welfare; and should require the approval of Congress."
Moron alert #2: Of course they're keeping it secret if true. This traitorous bastard and his underlings have done nothing but lie since day one!
Charles Krauthammer makes a salient point below as to it's not a matter of if there is a travel ban but when:
“We just heard the head of the CDC say that we track all visitors coming in,” he said. “We couldn’t even track a nurse who had treated Mr. Duncan all the way to Cleveland. And we’re going to be assured that a Ghanaian coming in here, is going to be tracked for the three weeks? And if you check his temperature and it’s negative – there’s still three weeks in which he can develop symptoms and we’re actually going to know where he is – who he talked to – and if he gets sick, we’re going to have to retrace people he’s been in contact with…This is absurd. We get a couple more cases of people who come in with Ebola – like Mr. Duncan, and I absolutely assure you we’re going to have a travel ban.”
Moron alert #3: Make no mistake about this! The only thing Obama is worried about is political problems! Why he actually took 2 days off from campaigning and for what? To make it appear he is a leader? I better be careful here! If this is leadership, I'm going to puke and hell, some moron might take that as me "having symptoms". Seriously, he's trying to lead? Oh I see, he "listened to people and appointed a Czar!
Whoopie effin do!
Moron alert #4: So let's appoint a political insider operative, one with absolutely no medical background and further more on who gave advice as to helping Solyndra obtain and in turn wast untold millions of taxpayer monies.
KLAIN: A POLITICAL FIXER FOR A POLITICAL PROBLEM
We learned an awful lot today about how the Obama White House views the threat from Ebola with the appointment of Ron Klain as “czar” for dealing with response to the disease. Since Klain, who rose to fame as the chief Democratic lawyer in the 2000 Florida recount, is a political fixer and not an expert in epidemiology or public safety, we can assume that President Obama sees a political problem that needs to be fixed. The White House says that it is possible and perhaps “likely” that more Americans will be diagnosed with the virus, which we can assume means that more cases are almost certainly out there. But we are told that because the government has learned from its mistakes is now being aggressive with quarantines (or not), everything will be okay. The effort to get Americans to calm down and relax about the disease that dissolves human organs and carries a 70 percent mortality rate has somehow not worked out. So now, in response to all the alarm, the administration is trying to match the public tone. And as was the case two months ago on Islamist militants in Iraq and Syria, the only circumstance that seems to be different is public opinion.
[“A CBS News Poll has found that positive assessment of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has declined dramatically, with only 37 percent of respondents saying the CDC is doing an excellent or good job -- down from 60 percent in a May 2013 Gallup poll.”]
Please note the below item from Fox. Hell, even a so called non elitist conservative like me (after all, according to the Democrats, we conservatives can't read or think for ourselves) no the appointment of a Democratic bozo is purely political!
Czared or Shinsekied? – The selection of Klain as “Ebola czar” (aside from squandering what might have been the best alt-rock band name ever) is in part to get a handle on the bureaucracy in the person of a party loyalist, but mostly window dressing. The government already has someone whom might be called an Ebola czar. It has, in fact, no shortage of people who are in positions to take the lead role. The real problem here is political: A lack of confidence in the existing team. The appointment of a “czar” is a way to put a new face on outreach, and an acknowledgement of the missteps by the administration. It spares a symbolic sacking of the frustrated and mistrusted Centers for Disease Control boss Dr. Thomas Frieden. Better to be czared than Shinsekied, one supposes.
Ebola in effect turns your organs into liquid! At the moment, it is basically centered in Western Africa. But if anyone in their right minds thinks for one moment it cannot break out badly here, they are badly mistaken. Belying the overt lies coming from the administration, the fact is we cannot track these people! Hell, they could be sneaking in over the Mexican border for all we know! And I don't want to here any bullshit as to how secure the borders are and it would be almost impossible for someone with the disease to come across!
Be it Benghazi, Fast and Furious, the diseases already coming in from the south (we know as a fact TB and an entrovirus are starting to appear since the invasion of the so called kids a few months ago) and more, the lies continue to spew from the mouths of the scum that is our leadership! In the cases cited, people have and are dying as we speak!
Moron alert #5: One of the jobs of the President is "protecting" the people of this country! Not imposing a travel ban is not protecting us! So can anyone anywhere please explain why we are supposed to listen to a person who doesn't give one damn about this country?! Hell, Jimmy Carter cared more about us than this traitor! And yes, I openly refer to Obama as a traitor. He has openly pushed this country to the edge of hard core socialism and worse and in turn become the so called imperial presence (for you lefites out there, that means he is on the edge of hard core soviet style dictatorship status) we fought so hard years ago to rid ourselves of (remember the American Revolution? Of course not. Leftist scum like our President don't believe in those ideals anymore!) And now, he is choosing to turn his back on a reality that in theory could kill thousands if it hits hard. but what the hell! It can't be to bad! Back to the campaign trail today!
As I said above, I could puke right now. I am sick. I'm sick with worry for our country, it's safety and more. I'm sick with the worry that our very core structure is being wantonly destroyed by a virus that has infected our schools, the media and definitely our government, a virus that will destroy us! The cancer that is "our loss of the basic ideals and tenets that made this country great" is just as bad as the Ebola outbreak in Africa.
And in watching the performance of this President and his ass licking supporters as to the Ebola outbreak, as well as every other problem he and his morons refused to actually face head on, one can only worry as to the future of this country as we go forward!
People are going to die from this! It's not some panic and so forth! As the judge said, "I don't see people jumping from buildings in panic". It is a cold hard fact that this President and his allies refuse to put "we the People" first and foremost! Now he has chosen to endanger the health of millions for political reasons! Unfortunately as I say above, a travel ban from Western Africa might not be enough as much as I believe in it. Easy to figure out when the Liar in Chief still refuses to acknowledge our wide open borders!
