State Department Officials Warned to Not Research Origin of COVID-19 at Wuhan Institute in Order to Keep U.S. Funding Hidden

FoxNews.com reports that

State Department leaders were warned not to pursue an investigation into the origins of COVID-19, former department officials confirmed to Fox News on Thursday, amid fears that it would bring attention to U.S. funding of research at the Wuhan Institute where the virus may have escaped.

Vanity Fair reported that officials calling for transparency from the Chinese government were told not to explore the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s “gain of function” research, because it would bring what the outlet described as “unwelcome” attention of U.S. government funding into that research.

The outlet reported that Thomas DiNanno, a former acting assistant secretary of the State Department’s Bureau of Arms Control, Verification, and Compliance, wrote in a January memo that staff from two bureaus “warned” leaders within his office not to probe the origins of the virus because it risked opening “a can of worms.”

Multiple former State Department officials told Fox News that the reported memo accurately describes what was happening at State at the time and that there was an effort among some officials at the department to oppose an extensive investigation into a possible lab leak.

However, a State Department spokesperson told Fox News on Thursday that “no-one prevented the disclosure of accurate, properly contextualized information” and that “no effort was made at any time to suppress or withhold information from senior policymakers or the public.”

The claims come amid fresh scrutiny over the theory that the COVID-19 pandemic could have escaped from the Wuhan lab, where viruses were being experimented on and where officials have said military research was being conducted alongside civilian research.

The theory was promulgated by a number of Trump officials — including President Trump himself — but was dismissed by many in the media and scientific community, where it was often declared to be debunked or a conspiracy theory.

But with Chinese stonewalling of a World Health Organization investigation into the origins of the virus, and reporting that multiple employees of the lab became sick in November 2019 that required hospitalization, the theory has reemerged.

The lengthy Vanity Fair piece delves into the back-and-forth at the State Department over how intensely to investigate the Chinese origins of the virus. The outlet reports that Chris Ford, then the acting undersecretary for Arms Control and International Security, was disinterested and even hostile to an investigation.

In a memo in January 2021, Ford pushed back against a panel of experts’ initial investigation, which he believed contained weak evidence, and warned “against suggesting that there is anything inherently suspicious—and suggestive of biological warfare activity—about People’s Liberation Army (PLA) involvement at WIV on classified projects.

“It would be difficult to say that military involvement in classified virus research is intrinsically problematic, since the U.S. Army has been deeply involved in virus research in the United States for many years,” he said, according to Vanity Fair.

It was with that that DiNanno pushed back with a memo of his own, reportedly accusing Ford of misrepresenting the panel’s finding — while objecting to “apprehension and contempt” from staff as well as warnings not to investigate the origins out of fear of opening a “can of worms.”

The State Department spokesperson told Fox News that “internal disagreements were about the quality of analysis and the importance of not overstating, or bending, evidence to fit preconceived narratives.”

Per WSJ.com, a number of Senators, including Ron Johnson and Dr. Rand Paul, recently sent  a letter to Dr. Francis Collins, the head of the National Institute of Health. Here is an excerpt…

One of the notable NIH-funded studies that was already underway prior to the funding moratorium (in 2014) was Dr. Ralph Baric’s work on a “lab-made coronavirus related to SARS.” In this 2015 study, researchers reportedly created a chimeric virus “related to SARS [that] can infect human cells.” Dr. Zhengli-Li Shi, “China’s leading expert on bat viruses” from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, contributed to this research. An article noted that NIH allowed this study “to proceed while it was under review by the agency.” Baric reportedly added that “NIH eventually concluded that the work was not so risky as to fall under the [gain of function] moratorium.” It is unclear why NIH apparently concluded that this study was not “risky” enough to fall under the moratorium.

In addition to Baric’s apparent gain of function research in 2015, NIH and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) also reportedly funded similar coronavirus research conducted by EcoHealth Alliance, which subcontracted with Shi. Because of Shi’s research and her connection to the Wuhan lab, Dr. Richard Ebright, a molecular biologist and infectious disease expert, stated, “[i]t is clear that the Wuhan Institute of Virology was systematically constructing novel chimeric coronaviruses and was assessing their ability to infect human cells and human-ACE2-expressing mice.” In fact, Dr. Peter Dasazk, the president of EcoHealth Alliance, spoke about changing coronaviruses in a lab. In an interview Dasazk stated, “Well I think . . . coronaviruses — you can manipulate them in the lab pretty easily.”

In December 2017, NIH lifted the funding pause and established a multi-disciplinary review process, known as the P3CO Framework, to ensure that federally funded gain of function experiments are “conducted responsibly.” It is unclear whether EcoHealth Alliance or any of its subcontractors was granted an exception to the moratorium or whether NIH reviewed those studies in connection with the P3CO Framework.

The funding of research into bat viruses done by the Wuhan Institute, under the funding by the EcoHealth Alliance, lasted for over a decade.

Surprise! Surprise! Both the CDC and the NIH are partners of the Ecohealth Alliance.

Just as we found out during the whole charade known as “Russiagate”, there are Professional Bureaucrats who operate behind the scenes of our Federal Government, imperious and seemingly above the law.

Like a spider’s web of intrigue, they move in the shadows, spending our tax money on projects away from the eye of the public.

Projects like the Bat Virus Research done by the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

These projects remain unknown by the general public, until something unforeseen happens, like the “accident” at the Wuhan Institute which released COVID-19 on an unsuspecting world.

Former President Trump tried to clean out this rats’ nest of Professional Bureaucrats, naming them the Washington Swamp.

Unfortunately, he did not succeed and they eventually were able to arrange for a demented old man to be appointed the 46ths President of the United States of America.

The entire COVID-19 Catastrophe and Washington’s behind-the-scenes machinations during it, which resulted in a nationwide lockdown and a “radical change to our American way of life, has been all about controlling average Americans to get them used to having their individual freedom taken away from them.

These revelations concerning the Washington Swamp’s involvement with the funding of COVID-19 is just the beginning of horrifying things which were done in the darkness by bureaucrats which are about to find themselves illuminated by the light of truth.

“Climate Czar” John Kerry Caught Maskless on American Airlines Flight…Being a Political Elite Has its Privileges

Image

FoxNews.com reports that

Climate czar John Kerry was caught not wearing his mask while reading a book on an American Airlines flight in spite of a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) mandate requiring masks on flights.

The photo, which was first posted by conservative outlet the Tennessee Star, shows the former secretary of state wearing his mask hanging off one ear as he reads a book in first class.

Fox News confirmed the photo’s authenticity with the passenger, who wished to remain anonymous. The passenger shared a photo of his boarding pass with Fox News to confirm he was on the flight.

The passenger said they saw the president’s climate envoy wearing his mask while at the boarding gate, but took it off shortly after boarding ahead of other passengers.

“I salute our Very Special Presidential Envoy for Climate for not flying private, but instead flying first class commercial with the rest of us common folk,” said the passenger. “And while he can’t bring himself to follow his own party’s mask restrictions, we should cut him some slack.”

“Being an elite hypocrite is hard work!” the passenger added. The plane was mostly full, the passenger said.

The passenger told Fox News that they did not see any of the flight attendants onboard instructing Kerry to put his mask back on, but noted that Kerry later wore it for most of the flight.

American Airlines said on Twitter and reiterated in a statement to Fox News that the company would be “looking into” the incident and reiterated that “masks are required” on their planes for everyone.

Kerry responded on Twitter saying that the mask slip was “momentary.”

“Feels like there’s some St. Patrick’s day ‘malarkey’ afoot on Twitter,” Kerry wrote. “Let’s be clear: If I dropped my mask to one ear on a flight, it was momentary. I wear my mask because it saves lives and stops the spread. It’s what the science tells us to do.”

“His mask was off for five minutes,” the passenger told Fox News in response to Kerry’s statement. “If five minutes is ‘momentarily,’ he’s correct. Not sure being in a plane without a mask for five minutes is excusable.”

The CDC issued a mandate in January that went into effect at the beginning of last month which states that individuals “must wear masks that cover both the mouth and nose” while traveling on public transportation and while at a “transportation hub.”

What John Kerry did and his response to it is simply another example of Liberal Elitism or being a member of the “Political Elite”.

After his gig as Vice-President was over with, “Sleepy Joe” Biden, believe it or not, made a profound statement in an exit interview with the Los Angeles Times.

He said his party failed to connect with working-class, largely white voters, and warned that “a bit of elitism” has “crept in” to party thinking.

He recalled watching a Trump rally in Pennsylvania near where he grew up. “They’re all the people I grew up with,” he said. “They’re their kids. And they’re not racist. They’re not sexist. But we didn’t talk to them.”

There’s a reason for that.

The Liberal Elite have always believed that our country revolves around the big metropolitan areas in the Northeast and in California. They have always looked down their noses at what they derisively call “Flyover Country”, the same area that many of us call the Heartland of America or simply “home”.

The Far Left Democrats on Capitol Hill have become so eaten up with their own power and egotism that they have built a fence around Capitol Hill and the White House to keep us “Deplorables” or, as they call us now, “insurrectionists” out.

The Democrats live in their own little bubble there in the Beltway, looking down on us peons down here in Flyover Country.

And, as John Kerry showed, rules do not apply to them. Just to us.

This collective mindset, along with their unbridled lust for power is what led them to steal the 2020 Presidential election and install Joe Biden as their puppet.

But, I digress…

John Kerry spent the Trump Presidency plotting with and advising the Iranians as to how to “deal” with Trump.

Now, he’s a “Climate Czar”.

So, to simplify things: He’s gone from peddling treason to dealing in B.S.

But, hey, why not?

After all, he IS one of the “Smartest People in the Room”.

Excuse me.

I’ve got to go hurl.

CDC Says That Some Essential Workers Exposed to COVID-19 But Not Showing Symptoms Can Go Back to Work…That’s a Good Beginning…

4494cbf4-065a-4c9f-97cb-f8da0024f1af-Essential_Workers

https://twitter.com/dbongino/status/1248046167419731968

FoxNews.com reports that

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced new coronavirus guidance Wednesday saying some essential workers who have been exposed to COVID-19 but are not showing symptoms can return to work.

Each worker would need to take his or her temperature twice a day for signs of a fever and wear a face mask at work and out in public to prevent the spread of the virus, Dr. Robert Redfield, the director of the CDC, said at Wednesday’s White House coronavirus briefing.

Redfield said the guidance was an effort to “really begin to get these critical workers back into the workforce so that we won’t have worker shortage in these critical industries,” including first responders, health-care workers, food supply workers and more.

The CDC also was encouraging employers to take their employees’ temperatures at the beginning of the workday and send home any workers who showed symptoms. In addition, officials said buildings should increase their air exchange and increase the frequency of how they clean common rooms and areas.

Employees still have been discouraged from congregating in break rooms, lunchrooms or any large gathering spaces, Redfield said.

The new considerations by the CDC signaled the slightest hope for a return to normalcy in the U.S. even as the death toll reached 13,929 and the country continues to grapple with 404,352 cases of the virus.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom” on Wednesday that if the social distancing strategies implemented through the end of April are successful in slowing the curve and spread of coronavirus, the government could start to peel back some of the restrictions in the weeks to come.

“If, in fact, we are successful, it makes sense to at least plan what a re-entry into normality would look like,” Fauci told Fox News. “That doesn’t mean we’re going to do it right now, but it means we need to be prepared to ease into that.”

Even though “we’re starting to see some glimmers of hope,” the United States needs to “keep pushing on the mitigation strategies,” Fauci said, reiterating that tactics such as social distancing need to continue because “there is no doubt that that’s having a positive impact on the dynamics of the outbreak.”

Fauci, a member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, said that although the death toll is staggering in the U.S. — and third to only Italy and Spain with the highest number of deceased — “the deaths generally lag by a couple of weeks behind what’s fueling the outbreak, namely the number of new cases and the number of hospitalizations.”

Still, health officials, including Fauci, remain skeptical of reopening the country’s economy too soon, as recent studies suggest that some people who are infected with the virus do not show any symptoms, while others who have developed symptoms of COVID-19 and recovered may remain contagious.

Fauci told reporters during a press briefing Sunday that between 25 and 50 percent of infected Americans are not exhibiting symptoms of the virus.

“That is an estimate. I don’t have any scientific data yet to say that,” he added.

Good news for “essential workers”.

However, for those who suffer from out-of-control Trump Derangement Syndrome, the Coronavirus Outbreak and the resulting economic blow America has taken, (and, I can’t believe I am saying this about fellow Americans) has been just the “break” that they have been looking for.

I absolutely hate to speak of this horrible pandemic, which looks as if it may not take as many American lives as was predicted, thank God, in political terms.

However, if the external enemies of America, like the Chinese Government, and her internal enemies, who lust for the political power of the White House in order to turn us into a Marxist nation had their way, I absolutely believe that they would cheer another Great Depression, such as my parents struggled through with their parents., in order to regain the White House.

Look at what we have witnessed so far:

Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff wanting to form committees to attempt to set up another impeachment of President Trump for anything they thing he may have done wrong in the handling of this pandemic.

The Governor of New York wanting more ventilators while thousands were found that had already been delivered.

The Main Stream Media attacking the President and Vice-President during the Coronavirus Taskforce Daily Briefings and any other opportunity they have.

China lying about the Coronavirus and the head of the WHO swearing to it.

The cost of human life during this pandemic has been horrible enough without it being made into a political weapon.

It is time to start slowly and judiciously reclaiming our nation and to restart what was a booming economy.

We are Americans.

GOD’S GOT THIS.

Rush: MSM Reporting Coronavirus Like an Oncoming Hurricane in Order to Blame Trump…Until They Can’t

map-cases-us_json&theme=theme-cyan&host=www_cdc

From CDC.gov

Updated March 10, 2020

This page will be updated regularly at noon Mondays through Fridays. Numbers close out at 4 p.m. the day before reporting.

CDC is responding to an outbreak of respiratory illness caused by a novel (new) coronavirus. The outbreak first started in Wuhan, China, but cases have been identified in a growing number of other locations internationally, including the United States. In addition to CDC, many public health laboratories are now testing for the virus that causes COVID-19.

COVID-19: U.S. at a Glance*
Total cases: 647
Total deaths: 25
Jurisdictions reporting cases: 36 (includes District of Columbia)
* Data include both confirmed and presumptive positive cases of COVID-19 reported to CDC or tested at CDC since January 21, 2020, with the exception of testing results for persons repatriated to the United States from Wuhan, China and Japan. State and local public health departments are now testing and publicly reporting their cases. In the event of a discrepancy between CDC cases and cases reported by state and local public health officials, data reported by states should be considered the most up to date.

According to the CDC, 528 of the cases which have been reported are still under investigation.

The states which have been hardest hit at New York with 142 reported cases, Washington State with 162, and California with 135.

My state of birth, Tennessee, has 5 cases reported, driving the Demcrats in my Hometown of Memphis to wrap themselves in garbage bags to go out in public and to spray their children down with Lysol and Clorox.

And, as Forrest Gump said, “That’s all I’ve got to say about that”.

The state in which I live, Mississippi, does not have any cases reported.

Conservative Talk Show Legend, Rush Limbaugh, recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom (I love writing that!) made the following astute observation on yesterday’s program…

You know, watching the coverage of this and the ongoing effort to create a panic — and let’s make no mistake here that that’s exactly what is happening here — I finally came up with what I think is a good analogy. The coronavirus is like a hurricane several days away from making landfall.Take your pick of any hurricane out there in recent memory — if you want to use Katrina, any hurricane — and then remember how the media covers it. “It’s going to devastate wherever it’s headed. It’s gonna just obliterate! It’s a Cat 5. It’s going to mean total destruction.” No one knows the strength when it hits, despite their predictions. No one knows where it’s gonna hit. No one knows when.

Our forecasts have gotten better, but it’s still a gigantic crapshoot, particularly the farther out at sea the hurricane is. But the media knows that it’s gonna deliver clicks, it’s gonna deliver hits, it’s gonna deliver massive headlines, it’s gonna create massive attention by the public. It will deliver eyeballs — and they know they can blame Trump, right up until the moment they can’t. They know.

They know and they salivate over the chance to blame Trump. You’ve got an oncoming hurricane here. The outer bands have begun to strike the Continental United States. The evidence is there! They’ve got the reporters out on the beaches out on the Outer Banks, for example, of North Carolina, and they’re showing us the waves are about six inches higher than usual.

“See, it’s coming! It’s coming! There may be a flood here, a flood there. The initial reports of damage are coming in, and it all means it’s gonna be a grand disaster.” The Drive-Bys are all collected out on the beach. Their cameras are pointed westward, eastward, wherever it takes to get this hurricane, any indication of it whatsoever. The same thing was true of the impeachment hearings. The same exact thing was true of the impeachment hearings.

All we had was hearsay evidence.

We had endless speculation.

The same thing was true with the Russia-Trump collusion story. There was never any evidence, there was never a shred of evidence, and yet look at what we were told was coming. The walls were closing in on Donald Trump! We had these endless anonymous sources from the intelligence community who were telling us that it was only a matter of time before the evidence would be forthcoming.

Hearsay evidence before the impeachment hearings, endless speculation.

It was the same thing with the Mueller report.

The coronavirus is one of those moments for the Drive-By Media, and just as a hurricane is an opportunity to blame people who don’t believe in climate change — man-made climate change. Just as a hurricane is exaggerated and built up and lied about before anybody knows its true strength and nature in order to advance a political agenda (i.e., climate change), coronavirus is being used to advance the agenda that Donald Trump:

A. Doesn’t care about you; he only cares about himself.

B. Donald Trump is incompetent.

C. Donald Trump’s not taking it seriously enough.

D. You might die; it’s all gonna be Donald Trump’s fault.

E. It’s an opening for the Democrats!

It’s an opportunity for the Democrats, just like impeachment was an opportunity for the Democrats, like the Mueller hearings an opportunity for the Democrats, and a gigantic hurricane is an opportunity for the Democrats and the climate change crowd. So the coronavirus is one of these moments.

This is the pattern. This is what Drive-By Media is. This is the utter definition. You’re looking at it here. The problem for them is, they have been wrong every time during the Trump administration. They have been wrong about every dire prediction they have made, and they have made these predictions with ontological certitude.

Per usual, Rush is absolutely correct.

The problem is that in their attempt to bring down the President, the MSM is scaring a lot of average Americans half to death.

Monday, my wife, having had enough of watching me go to work last week while seriously ill, after being up all night coughing and running fever, took advantage of both of us being off for a few days to chauffeur me to the doctor’s office.

One of my longtime doctor’s nurse practitioners, a very smart and nice young lady, asked me what was going on.

Being a severe asthmatic, I already knew: asthmatic bronchitis.

So, she listened to my chest and looked at the chart to see what my temperature and blood pressure were and smiled at me and said, “You’re right.” I then had a couple of x-rays to make sure that it was not pneumonia.

Needless to say, I got a Steroid Sinus Cocktail shot and was sent home with some more prednisone and an antibiotic to knock it out.

I told her about the column I write everyday and I asked her about what effect the coronavirus was having on their office in East Memphis.

She said that a great number of their elderly patients and some not so elderly were calling in wanting Coronavirus Vaccines which have not even been developed, yet.

She also agreed with me that the flu kills more Americans on a yearly basis than the coronavirus will and that the reports of the virus were being used as a political weapon.

As my wife and I were leaving the office, I was looking at the average Americans sitting in the waiting room.

I was wondering what kind of people would use a virus as a political weapon, affecting the lives of innocent Americans, without giving them a second thought.

And then, I remembered how Lenin, Stalin, and Mao acquired power through fear.

And, I just shook my head as I got into our car and we headed to the pharmacy.

First US Coronavirus Case of Unknown Origin Confirmed in North California, Trump Holds Press Conference…What Should We Do?

trump-keeps-his-coronavirus-news-conference-focused-on-one-high-risk-patient-himself

“Because of all we’ve done, the risk to the American people remains very low. We’re ready to adapt, and we’re ready to do whatever we have to.” – President Donald J. Trump

FoxNews.com reports that

The nation’s first coronavirus case of unknown origin has been confirmed in Northern California, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirmed Wednesday.

“It is a confirmed case. There is one in Northern California,” CDC spokesman Scott Pauley told the Sacramento Bee.

The new case brings the number of infected in the United States to 60, which includes people who’ve been repatriated to the U.S. The CDC said the person contracted the virus without traveling outside the U.S. or coming into close contact with another infected patient, The Washington Post reported.

The news comes as fear over the virus continues to spread worldwide, prompting governments to take extreme measures. President Trump said a vaccine was being developed and “coming along very well” during a Wednesday evening news conference at the White House.

He announced that he was putting Vice President Mike Pence in charge of the coronavirus task force.

“Because of all we’ve done, the risk to the American people remains very low,” Trump told reporters. “We’re ready to adapt, and we’re ready to do whatever we have to.”

Earlier this week, San Francisco and Orange counties both declared states of emergency in efforts to prevent further infections. Orange County leaders also publically supported a bid by Costa Mesa leaders to block infected patients from being housed in their city.

Globally, nearly 2,800 people have died from the outbreak and more than 80,000 have been sickened.

It has been interesting following the developments as this virus has spread from China to other countries including Iran and Italy.

And now, it appears that Northern California is the scene of the first “outbreak” in America.

The loss of life in these other countries has indeed been tragic.

However, so has been the politicization of the Coronavirus as another opportunity for the Democrats to blame something on President Donald J. Trump.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi put down her glass long enough to spout the following babble per Breitbart.com

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Wednesday accused the Trump administration of responding “too late” to halt the possible spread of China’s deadly coronavirus in the United States.

“This is shameful,” Pelosi told reporters on Capitol Hill when asked about the administration sending a $2.5 billion supplemental budget request to combat the illness. “He puts forth a proposal now that is meager, anemic in terms of addressing this. Ebola, we did $5 billion. And now they’re trying to take the Ebola money and spend it here.”

“Hopefully we can make up for the loss of time…and not be using scare tactics about people coming back to our country.”

“What he’s doing is late, too late, anemic,” she added. “Hopefully, we can make up for the loss of time but we have to have professionals in place, resources that are adequate and not use scare tactics about people coming back to our country.”

The administration’s request proposes spending unused funds earmarked to fight Ebola, with officials seeking $1.25 billion in new money for vaccine development and purchasing protective equipment.

Asked for her thoughts on President Donald Trump’s comments about the coronavirus, Pelosi replied tersely: “I don’t think the President knows what he’s talking about. Once again.”

And, I think you’re drunk, Madam Speaker. But, what else is new.

Now, as an America male in my early 60s, who is in front of the public all day, a new virus strain does indeed concern me, especially since I am asthmatic, am prone to upper respiratory infections, and I tend to get very tired in the process of performing the duties of my day job.

However, I do not believe that it is time to panic…yet.

Why did the scene from the 1975 Classic Comedy “Airplane” where the passengers are “assuming crash position”, running berserk through the cabin suddenly enter my mind?

Anyway, Dr. Manny Alvarez serves as Fox News Channel’s senior managing health editor. He also serves as chairman of the department of obstetrics/gynecology and reproductive science at Hackensack University Medical Center in New Jersey.

Here are some facts and some common sense suggestions from an article which he wrote for FoxNews.com

  1. Let’s start with facts. What do we know so far about this virus?

  2. It is a very contagious virus — just like any flu virus — and appears to transmit itself very similarly through direct contact with infected patients.

  3. In otherwise healthy individuals the viral infection is tolerated and most patients recover without any significant effects.

  4. For about 20 percent of patients who do require medical attention (such as hospitalization) with good medical treatment and support they will ultimately recover from the virus.

About two percent of patients infected with the virus will die from upper respiratory complications.

Based on the facts above, until there is a vaccine, the war to protect ourselves will need to be waged by individuals and the government. We’ll need to keep informed about what areas of the United States are reporting cases of coronavirus. And, everyone should always consider practicing good hygiene. That includes doing the following:

  1. Avoid those people who are sick with the virus

  2. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth

  3. Practice good hand hygiene — wash your hands with soap and warm water for at least 2 minutes

  4. Disinfect surfaces

I read yesterday that Lysol is the recommended disinfectant to help prevent the spread of diseases like the coronavirus.

In summary, per usual, Pelosi and the Democrats have put politics over country, self-interest of Americans and our well-being. I am thankful that our President is Donald J. Trump with this uncertainty facing us. I shudder to think about how Hillary Clinton would deal with this situation, especially since she would have doubled down on Obamacare by now, leaving us and our American Health System totally screwed.

Keep yourself as protected as possible.

Gob bless us…everyone.

Goths to the East, VisiGoths to the South: Trump’s Immigration Proposals are Looking Better All the Time

untitled (56)While Americans are watching the Political Shenanigans, being practiced on full display, in both the Republican and Democrat Primaries, the current Administration continues their plan to “radically change” America…by any means necessary…including “importing their instruments of change”.

When the Roman Empire fell, they were under siege by invaders on several fronts.

So is America.

This summer, there will be another “Mexican Munchkin Migration”, harboring an invasion force of Mexican Gang Members.

Judicialwatch.org reports that

A government official warned employees deploying for the influx of illegal immigrant minors about health and safety risks because the new arrivals would have tuberculosis and some were young adults—not children—like the Obama administration proclaimed, according to records obtained by Judicial Watch. “We might as well plan on many of the kids having TB,” states a June 26, 2014 guidance e-mail from a Centers for Disease Control (CDC) environmental health scientist, Alaric C. Denton, as the agency prepared to handle the crisis. “Most of these kids are not immunized, so we need to make sure all our staff are immunized.” Denton, who is stationed at the CDC headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, predicts in the directive that the agency will be overwhelmed pretty quickly and that screening requirements will be hard to keep up with.

Judicial Watch had to sue the CDC’s umbrella agency, the Department of Health and Human Services, (HHS) for the records. Though chunks have been redacted, the documents contradict the Obama administration’s public statements dismissing possible health and safety risks created by the tens of thousands of Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) fleeing violence in Central America. The CDC official reveals in the documents obtained by JW as a result of the lawsuit that “some of these kids are not really kids they are young adults, and we should be wary of personal safety.” JW reported this early on, when the first group of UACs arrived through the Mexican border in the summer of 2014. Homeland Security sources directly involved with the mess told JW that holding centers were jam-packed, rampant with diseases and sexually active teenagers. A veteran Border Patrol officer who heads the agency’s Tucson sector quickly established that many of the UACs were not little kids but rather 17-year-olds with possible ties to gang members in the U.S.

Weeks later JW reported that the nation’s most violent street gangs—including Mara Salvatrucha or MS-13—were actively recruiting new members at U.S. shelters housing illegal immigrant minors. A high-level Homeland Security source told JW the gangs used Red Cross phones at the shelters to communicate with the new recruits. Last fall the Texas Department of Public Safety confirmed that the MS-13 has been fortified and able to remain a top tier gang thanks to the influx of illegal alien gang members that recently crossed into the state. The MS-13 is a feared street gang of mostly Central American illegal immigrants that’s spread throughout the U.S. and is renowned for drug distribution, murder, rape, robbery, home invasions, kidnappings, vandalism and other violent crimes. The Justice Department’s National Gang Intelligence Center (NGIC) says criminal street gangs like the MS-13 are responsible for the majority of violent crimes in the U.S. and are the primary distributors of most illicit drugs.

This new batch of government records, part of an ongoing JW investigation into the UAC disaster, indicate the administration was well aware of the danger in allowing hordes of illegal immigrant youths to enter and stay in the U.S. At the very least it flies in the face of the administration’s false narrative involving the key issues of health and safety surrounding the new arrivals which have been relocated throughout the nation. Denton, the CDC environmental health scientist who warned colleagues prior to deployment, works at the agency’s Environmental, Safety and Health Compliance Office (ESHCO). Officials from other federal agencies, including the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), were also involved in the exchanges. JW will continue receiving records from the government involving this issue as part of an agreement, supervised by a federal judge, stemming from our lawsuit.

Plus, thanks to the Obama Administration, Americans will be “welcoming” more “Visitors from the East”….

Something wicked this way comes…from Europe.

When the Syrian Refugee Invasion of Europe escalated, Ben Shapiro, writing for Breitbart News, asked and answered the following question…

Who Are These Refugees?

That competition to accept refugees would be fine if we knew that the refugees plan on assimilating into Western notions of civilized society, and if we knew that they were indeed victims of radical Muslim atrocities. Unfortunately, we know neither. It is deeply suspicious that major Muslim countries that do not border Syria refuse to take in large numbers of refugees, except for Algeria and Egypt.

Turkey has taken in nearly two million refugees, according to the United Nations, and keeps the vast majority in refugee camps — a typical practice in a region that has kept Arab refugees from the 1948 war of Israeli independence in Arab-run camps for seven decades. Jordan, Lebanon and Iraq have taken in hundreds of thousands of refugees as well, but all border the chaotic, collapsing Syria, and thus have limited choice in the matter. Iran has taken in no refugees. Neither have Pakistan, Indonesia, or any of the other dozens of member states of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation. Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait and Bahrain all refused to take any refugees, and explicitly cited the risk of terrorists among the refugees, according to The Guardian (UK).

These fears are not without merit, as even Obama administration officials have acknowledged: back in February, director of the National Counterterrorism Center Nicholas Rasmussen called Syrian refugees “clearly a population of concern.” FBI Assistant Director Michael Steinbach explained, “Databases don’t [have] the information on those individuals, and that’s the concern. On Tuesday, State Department spokesman John Kirby told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer that terrorist infiltration was “a possibility. I mean, you can’t, you can’t dismiss that out of hand.” He then added, “Obviously, if you look at those images though, it’s pretty clear that the great majority of these people are innocent families.”

Actually, images show a disproportionate number of young males in crowds of refugees. And those images reflect statistical reality: according to the United Nations Human Rights Commission, Mediterranean Sea refugees are overwhelmingly male: just 13 percent are women, and just 15 percent are children. The other 72 percent are men. Compare that population to the refugees in the Middle East from the same conflicts: 49.5 percent male, and 50.5 percent female, with 38.5 percent under the age of 12. Those are wildly different populations.

It is also being reported that these “refugees” are leaving a trail of waste, human and otherwise, in their wake.

In other words, these guys believe that hygiene is a girl that they used to “date” back home.

Classy, huh?

It appears that we have a lot to look forward to.

Here’s a Million Drachma Question for ya: Why are the other Middle Eastern Countries not taking them in?

What do they know that we and the Europeans don’t?

A famous quote by George Santayana states that

Those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it.

As The History Channel notes

The Barbarian attacks on Rome partially stemmed from a mass migration caused by the Huns’ invasion of Europe in the late fourth century. When these Eurasian warriors rampaged through northern Europe, they drove many Germanic tribes to the borders of the Roman Empire. The Romans grudgingly allowed members of the Visigoth tribe to cross south of the Danube and into the safety of Roman territory, but they treated them with extreme cruelty. According to the historian Ammianus Marcellinus, Roman officials even forced the starving Goths to trade their children into slavery in exchange for dog meat. In brutalizing the Goths, the Romans created a dangerous enemy within their own borders. When the oppression became too much to bear, the Goths rose up in revolt and eventually routed a Roman army and killed the Eastern Emperor Valens during the Battle of Adrianople in A.D. 378. The shocked Romans negotiated a flimsy peace with the barbarians, but the truce unraveled in 410, when the Goth King Alaric moved west and sacked Rome. With the Western Empire weakened, Germanic tribes like the Vandals and the Saxons were able to surge across its borders and occupy Britain, Spain and North Africa.

American Billionaire. Business Entrepreneur, and Republican Presidential Candidate, Donald J. Trump has garnered a lot of attention and caught a lot of flack from Political Pundits and Media Hacks, alike, for his Immigration Platform, in which he outlines two basic solutions to the problems that I have written about in today’s blog.

Trump’s Immigration Platform calls for (And, I am paraphrasing)…

  1. Building a wall along America’s Southern Border and make Mexico pay for it.
  2. Suspending all Muslim Immigration, including that of the largely unvetted Syrian Refugees, until it can be determined exactly what the purpose of this mass migration is, in order to protect the sovereignty of America and the safety of its citizens.

If you were watching Saturday morning cartoons in 1977 on ABC, you would have seen this Schoolhouse Rock musical cartoon titled “The Great American Melting Pot”.  It extolled the unique greatness of  our American heritage.

For a while now, that heritage has been under attack.

The Immigration Act of 1924 was passed because America had experienced an overwhelming flood of immigrants, which strained the resources of our nation.

This act allowed all of these immigrants to be assimilated into American Society and to actually become Americans, in thought, word, deed, and LOYALTY.

Liberal President Jimmy Carter stopped Iranians from immigrating, because, just like the situation we faced today with Radical Islam, we were AT WAR.

In fact, Obama and his Administration are themselves being restrictive in whom they allow to immigrate to America, including restricting the immigration of persecuted Christians from the Middle East.

The only reason that all of the “perpetually concerned” Liberals are against Donald J. Trump’s proposals is that he is attempting to thwart their plans to rapidly import thousands of Muslims and Mexicans, whom the Powers That Be view as potential Democrat Voters, into our country.

Like all Liberals, they remain oblivious of their own hypocrisy.

…And, woefully, willfully, ignorant of history.

Has the Mexican Munchkin Migration Metamorphosed Into a Miasmatic Measles Maleficence?

Measles 1A dangerous childhood disease, which American Medicine had just about eradicated, is in the process of making a monstrous comeback.

According to The Washington Post,

The measles outbreak spread to three more states and Washington D.C. last week, affecting 19 additional people, according to an update posted Monday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The highly contagious disease is now in 18 jurisdictions, with 121 people affected. The vast majority of the cases are part of the large outbreak that began in Southern California Disney theme parks in late December, the health agency said.

The total is on pace to easily surpass the 644 cases in the United States in 2014, the greatest number since measles was declared eliminated in the United States in 2000. Last week, the CDC reported 102 cases in 14 states.

Authorities have said the resurgence is mostly caused by the growing number of people who are declining to vaccinate their children for personal reasons, or delaying the vaccinations.

“This is a teachable moment for this country,” former U.S. Rep. Henry Waxman said at a conference Monday at Johns Hopkins University’s Bloomberg School of Public Health. “When we see a disease that was almost eliminated in the early 1980s now come back with a jolt all around this country, we have to ask ourselves what’s going on.

“Not even vaccines are immune to politics … I’ve seen politics threaten vaccination efforts time and time again,” he added.

According to the CDC, measles spread to Nevada (2 cases) as well as Delware, New Jersey and the District of Columbia (1 case each), as it continued to plague California, which has 88 cases. Arizona has the second-largest case total with 7.

Public health authorities have begun campaigning about the importance of vaccinating children against measles. President Obama, Surgeon General Vivek H. Murthy and Baltimore Public Health Commissioner Leana S. Wen, as well as the CDC and other public health organizations have called on parents to vaccinate children.

What if these “public health authorities” are blaming the wrong parents…of the wrong children? And, the actual culprits are not even American?

Back on July 3rd of 2014, during the heart of the Mexican Munchkin Migration, I reported the following,

KGTV, the ABC affiliate in San Diego, CA reports that

A Border Patrol agents union representative told 10News the influx of undocumented immigrants now in Border Patrol custody is threatening the health of agents as well as national security.

“We have compassion for them …,” said union representative Ron Zermeno.

At about 12:45 a.m. Wednesday, one of the buses pulled out of the checkpoint and onto a freeway. Two people sitting behind the driver appeared to be Border Patrol agents wearing masks. 10News could not confirm if any children were on the bus. As 10News was trying to follow the bus onto a freeway, Border Patrol SUVs blocked the entrance to the freeway.

Zermeno told 10News Wednesday morning that 99 migrants were transported to various San Diego Sector Border Patrol stations for processing. According to Zermeno, 40 had been taken to Brown Field Station in Otay Mesa. Forty-two were taken to the Imperial Beach Station, and 17 to the Boulevard Station in southeast San Diego County.

Zermeno said Border Patrol agents were being pulled off the line to help with processing the immigrants. Zermeno told 10News this could pose a safety issue due to less agents on the street.

Meanwhile, 40 were being quarantined at the Border Patrol Chula Vista Station with active scabies and head lice. The facility will provide them with showers, laundry service and bedding. Another 10 people, mostly children, were taken to local hospitals with unknown illnesses.

“That’s my biggest fear: their health and also safety in the field,” said Zermeno.

Zermeno told 10News pulling agents could put national security on the line, adding, “The morale is the lowest I’ve ever seen it.”

Zermeno said he just wants to protect his agents and the border, as well as expose the truth because exposure seems to be a growing concern.

“I think the public needs to be aware. The average citizens [are not] aware because they could be exposed tomorrow.

At the time, I quipped.

That’s just great. Now, we have an INFECTIOUS Illegal Alien Invasion.

So, how did they get become infectious in the first place and what diseases could these “uninvited guests” have brought with them?

According to the Oxford Journals,

Risk factors for these infections include limited access to safe food and water, overcrowding, poor nutrition, and exposure to insect vectors. The infections noted in immigrants from Latin America partly reflect these exposures. For example, fecal contamination is common and results in an increased risk for enteric infections. Animal husbandry practices are less safe in Latin America than in the United States, and meat products are often sold informally without screening for parasites having been done. Milk products may not be pasteurized. Overcrowding and poor nutrition may amplify transmission of Mycobacterium tuberculosis and other respiratory pathogens. These exposures may continue after immigration to the United States.

A number of diseases that are common in Latin America are rarely diagnosed in the United States. Diarrhea due to toxigenic Escherichia coli is common among residents of and travelers to Latin America. However, toxigenic E. coli diarrhea is rarely recognized in immigrants because of the short incubation period and the limited duration of the illness. Chagas’ disease is rarely diagnosed in immigrants. This may reflect the low prevalence of Chagas’ disease in Mexico, the birthplace of most immigrants to the United States. Confusion of Chagas’ disease with other causes of heart disease is a problem. It is also possible that, because of the long period when individuals with Chagas’ disease are asymptomatic, the number of cases diagnosed may increase with time. Hansen’s disease (formerly known as leprosy) is endemic in Latin America. Although it has a characteristic presentation (hypoesthesia and skin lesions), its incidence is very low in Mexico and Central America, and the disease is uncommon in Latin American immigrants.

So, why was Obama so secretive concerning the care and treatment of all of these illegal aliens whom he relocated to military bases across America in advance of being disseminated throughout the country?

Could it be because he knew that Americans would be even more upset about the chaos brought about by tens of thousands of unaccompanied Illegal Alien Minors, if we knew the actual extent of infectious diseases among this “Mexican Munchkin Migration”?

Well, that would explain why, all of the sudden, the focus on school children, whose American Parents chose not to have them vaccinated, for fear of dangerous side effects, such as autism.

Can you say “SQUIRREL!!!”?

Ebola in America: Treatment By Confusion

EbolaFirst and foremost, I want the American people to know that our experts, here at the CDC and across our government, agree that the chances of an Ebola outbreak here in the United States are extremely low. We’ve been taking the necessary precautions, including working with countries in West Africa to increase screening at airports so that someone with the virus doesn’t get on a plane for the United States. In the unlikely event that someone with Ebola does reach our shores, we’ve taken new measures so that we’re prepared here at home. We’re working to help flight crews identify people who are sick, and more labs across our country now have the capacity to quickly test for the virus. We’re working with hospitals to make sure that they are prepared, and to ensure that our doctors, our nurses and our medical staff are trained, are ready, and are able to deal with a possible case safely. – President Barack Hussein Obama, “Remarks by the President on the Ebola Outbreak,  Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Atlanta, Georgia, 9/16/2014

To quote Maxwell Smart, Agent 86,

Missed it by that much.

As more cases of Ebola are coming to light, here in the “Shining City on a Hill”, the question concerning the outbreak remains,

Who is in charge here?

USA Today reports that

As Thomas Eric Duncan’s family mourns the USA’s first Ebola death in Dallas, one question reverberates over a series of apparent missteps in the case: Who is in charge of the response to Ebola?

The answer seems to be — there really isn’t one person or agency. There is not a single national response.

The Atlanta-based Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has emerged as the standard-bearer — and sometimes the scapegoat — on Ebola.

Public health is the purview of the states, and as the nation anticipates more Ebola cases, some experts say the way the United States handles public health is not up to the challenge.

“One of the things we have to understand is the federal, state and local public health relationships,” says Michael Osterholm, director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota. “Public health is inherently a state issue. The state really is in charge of public health at the state and local level. It’s a constitutional issue. The CDC can’t just walk in on these cases. They have to be invited in.”

…Though the CDC is tasked with readying the nation for an Ebola outbreak, then leading the national response, the Department of Homeland Security is responsible for protecting the borders, according to Thomas Skinner, a spokesman for the CDC, which is under the auspices of the Department of Health and Human Services.

The CDC collaborates with health departments and laboratories around the USA to make sure they are able to test for Ebola and respond rapidly if there is a case in their state, CDC spokeswoman Kirsten Nordlund said.

Uh huh.

Dr. Manny Alvarez, Fox News Senior Medical Editor for Health News, wrote the following:

Is the CDC in control?

I am not sure anymore. This latest case of Ebola in Texas has me wondering whether the CDC is prepared to eradicate any further contamination on U.S. soil.

CDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden stated that this latest case of Ebola was due to a breach in medical protocol. This current patient is a nurse who was part of the team treating Thomas Eric Duncan, who died last week from Ebola. 

As we all know, Mr. Duncan was very sick and he was in an isolation unit for more than a week. 

I would have imagined that the CDC would have been all over the supervision of this patient in the hospital, making sure that all protocols were being followed properly. 

So you see my conundrum. Did the CDC drop the ball? Or are we blaming this breach of protocol on hospital staff? 

I have been saying that not all hospitals are created equal and have the infrastructure necessary to fully protect its staff. The infrastructure is not available in many cities in the U.S. 

So the question is: How are we going to control further contamination? 

The time has come to have specific centers where patients with suspected Ebola need to be monitored and treated. Hospital staff needs to be better protected.

I think that Dr. Frieden needs to evaluate whether he is qualified for this national task. I think that Dr. Frieden needs to consider whether to delegate this responsibility to the Department of Defense, because dealing with Ebola warrants a military medical approach rather than a bureaucratic political Washington approach. 

Tough decisions need to be made. Dr. Frieden’s argument of not closing West Africa to commercial travel does not hold water. A better approach would be to have military flights bring supplies and volunteers to eradicate this epidemic in that continent. It would minimize the potential dangers to other communities around the planet as the world works on better treatment plans. Otherwise the Ebola war will continue for generations to come.

So, to summarize, a deadly disease, which has been contained in Africa for quite some time now, is now here in America, while 3,000 American Sons and Daughters, our Brightest and Best, have been sent by Obama to “combat it” and possibly become exposed to it.

What happens when they bring it back home with them?

Meanwhile, those tens of thousands of “unaccompanied minors” who invaded our Southern Border recently, have been spread all over America by Barack Hussein Obama.

And, as I reported before, they brought tuberculosis and other diseases with them.

The question remains,

Who is in charge here?

Until He Comes,

Obama, Ebola, and the Little Dutch Boy

AFBrancoObamaEbola1092014In response to the death of the first Ebola patient in our country, Obama and his Administration have announced that they are going to take drastic steps to prevent a pandemic…They’re going to take Airline Passengers’ temperatures.

The New York Times reports that

Federal health officials will require temperature checks for the first time at five major American airports for people arriving from the three West African countries hardest hit by the deadly Ebola virus. However, health experts said the measures were more likely to calm a worried public than to prevent many people with Ebola from entering the country.

Still, they constitute the first large-scale attempt to improve security at American ports of entry since the virus arrived on American soil last month.

They are also a notable policy shift at a time of rising concern about the disease. Public health officials had initially resisted the move, saying such checks would be an unnecessary use of thinly stretched resources. But pressure for tougher action mounted. Republicans sharply criticized President Obama for what they called a lax response. Many, including Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, have suggested looking at air travel restrictions from West Africa, something the administration has rejected.

The temperature check requirements were announced hours after the first Ebola patient to have the illness diagnosed in the United States, Thomas Eric Duncan, a Liberian, died in a Dallas hospital, intensifying questions about whether he might have survived had he been admitted to a hospital when he first sought care there in late September.

The president’s Republican critics were largely silent Wednesday after Mr. Duncan died and the administration announced the airport screenings. It was unclear if the Republicans saw the temperature checks as a sufficient response to the epidemic or if they did not want to be perceived as seeking political gain from Mr. Duncan’s death.

That Mr. Duncan was able to get from Liberia to Dallas as the disease surged out of control in West Africa underscored the risk of spreading disease in a globalized world. An infected Liberian-American, Patrick Sawyer, carried the disease to Nigeria, Africa’s most populous country, on a flight for business. Mr. Duncan had come to the United States to reunite with family.

“We are a global village,” said Howard Markel, a professor of the history of medicine at the University of Michigan. “Germs have always traveled. The problem now is they can travel with the speed of a jet plane.”

The new requirement of temperature checks has broad implications for health departments across the country.

In a conference call with state and local officials Wednesday afternoon, Mr. Obama expressed confidence in the procedures already in place to prevent the spread of Ebola, but urged them to be vigilant in the days and weeks ahead.

“As we saw in Dallas, we don’t have a lot of margin for error,” Mr. Obama told the group, according to a transcript released by the White House. “If we don’t follow protocols and procedures that are put in place, then we’re putting folks in our communities at risk.”

Gosh, really, Scooter? That’s not what you said…

First and foremost, I want the American people to know that our experts, here at the CDC and across our government, agree that the chances of an Ebola outbreak here in the United States are extremely low. We’ve been taking the necessary precautions, including working with countries in West Africa to increase screening at airports so that someone with the virus doesn’t get on a plane for the United States.

Okay,. We know that the source of Ebola is Africa. Why don’t we install a quaratine?

Oh, no. Like every other part of the Obama Administration, the CDC is much too smart for common sense. After all, they are our intellectual superiors.

The first priority of federal health officials is to protect Americans from Ebola, but “an outbreak anywhere is potentially a threat everywhere,” the head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Sunday.

In recent days, a handful of lawmakers, including Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, have called for restrictions on air travel between Ebola-affected countries in West Africa and the United States.

On Saturday, there was a brief scare at Newark Liberty International Airport when a passenger who had traveled from West Africa was ill on a flight from Brussels. A CDC official met the aircraft and the passenger was taken to a hospital, where “it became clear that the symptoms that individual had weren’t consistent with Ebola,” CDC Director Thomas Frieden said. The patient was discharged and was feeling better.

Despite the concerns sparked by such incidents, Frieden emphasized the importance of keeping the travel pipeline open to Ebola-stricken countries in order to fight the outbreak at its source.

“If we don’t control the outbreak, there’s a real risk that it could spread to other countries in Africa” and beyond, Frieden said. “To do that, we need regular travel.”

“If we make it harder to fight Ebola in West Africa, we actually increase our own risk,” he said. He noted that everyone leaving Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone is being screened and said the CDC is considering a plan to screen everyone coming into the U.S. from those countries.

“We’ve seen a lot of understandable concern because of the deadly nature of Ebola,” Frieden said. “We want (people) to be scared. We want them to have a healthy respect.”

Before Thomas Eric Duncan was diagnosed in Dallas, the CDC was getting 50 to 100 calls or e-mails daily. Now it’s getting about 800.

So, by “keeping the pipeline open”, we can better fight this disease?

That sort of twisted logic goes against every medical procedure that I have ever seen, and I worked 7 years with the physicians and the medical staff in a world-renowned hospital.

The normal protocol, which I have observed, firsthand, would be isolation, then treatment.

You don’t treat a deadly disease, like you are the little Dutch boy. holding his finger in the dam to keep it from busting open.

Now, with the death yesterday of the first Ebola Patient in the United States, and Ebola-like symptoms being reported by others, one has to wonder how long it will take before we receive reports of the infection of members of our Brightest and Best, 3,000 of whom have been sent into the Dante’s Inferno of Pestilence, Africa, by their Commander-in-Chief, Obama, to “combat” this disease.

May God protect them…and, us.

Obama’s Unlikelyhood Becomes Reality: Ebola in the USA!

EbolaFirst and foremost, I want the American people to know that our experts, here at the CDC and across our government, agree that the chances of an Ebola outbreak here in the United States are extremely low. We’ve been taking the necessary precautions, including working with countries in West Africa to increase screening at airports so that someone with the virus doesn’t get on a plane for the United States.

Wrong again, Scooter.

FoxNews.com reports that…

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirmed on Tuesday that a patient being treated at a Dallas hospital has tested positive for Ebola, the first case diagnosed in the United States.

The patient left Liberia on September 19 and arrived in the United States on September 20, CDC director, Dr. Tom Frieden told reporters at a press conference Tuesday. It’s the first patient to be diagnosed with this particular strain of Ebola outside of Africa.

“[The patient] had no symptoms when departing Liberia or entering this country. But four or five days later on the 24th of September, he began to develop symptoms,” said Frieden.

The patient, who was in the U.S. visiting family in Texas, initially sought care on September 26, but was sent home and was not admitted until two days later. He was placed in isolation at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas, where he remains critically ill, according to Frieden.

“The next steps are basically threefold,” said Frieden.  “First, to care for the patient … to provide the most effective care possible as safely as possible to keep to an absolute minimum the likelihood or possibility that anyone would become affected, and second, to maximize the chances that the patient might recover,” said Frieden.

Frieden said the CDC and Texas health officials were working to identify and monitor anyone who may have come in contact with the patient.

“It’s only someone who’s sick with Ebola who can spread the disease,” said Frieden. “Once those contacts are all identified, they’re all monitored for 21 days after exposure to see if they develop a fever.”

Frieden added that while it is possible that someone who had contact with the patient could develop Ebola in the coming weeks, he has no doubt the infection will be contained. At this point, he said, there is zero risk of transmission to anyone on the flight with the patient because he was not showing any symptoms at the time of travel.

It’s unclear how the patient became infected, but health officials said he “undoubtedly had close contact with someone who was sick with Ebola or who had died from it.”

The patient will stay at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital for treatment, where epidemiologist Dr. Edward Goodman, said medical staff have a plan in place for some time now in the event that a traveler brought Ebola to the United States, noting that the team had a crisis preparedness meeting just one week before the patient arrived at the facility. 

Hospital officials are currently evaluating different treatment options, including experimental therapies which have been successful in other patients, according to Frieden.

I hope that unfortunate soul hasn’t been in contact with a lot of people during the last 21 days…or, we’re choomed.

It’s a scary situation. So scary in fact, that even one of Obama’s most slavish sycophants was too scared for his own safety to try to spin this potential plague.

Last Night, on Hardball Tonight on MSNBC, Chris Matthews had a 10 minute heated exchange with the architect of Obamacare, Dr. Ezekiel Emmanuel.

It seems that ol’ Chrissie doesn’t have that tingle running up his leg for his fallen messiah, anymore.

Grab your popcorn.

CHRIS MATTHEWS: I’m just trying to follow the logic here. Everybody’s being told, don’t worry unless they have the infectious symptoms, you can see them, that you don’t have to worry about catching them. Yet, this guy picked up the disease apparently from somebody who did not have the infectious symptoms.

DR. EZEKIEL EMANUEL: Again, don’t hypothesize because we just don’t know. We have no idea what he did or didn’t do and how he got it. I’m sure that’s going to be vital information to try to understand the transmission, but the idea that there’s going to be a widespread outbreak here, I think is just, again, it’s a bit of fear mongering. We have a single case. This is not a big, widespread —

MATTHEWS: Yeah, yeah, but I’m just going back to the president’s statement, doctor, and that is that the president said it would be unlikely if we had a case in this country. Unlikely to even have one case. You want to see the tape again?

EMANUEL: He said there wouldn’t be an Ebola outbreak.

MATTHEWS: No, and in the second part of his sentence he said in the unlikely case someone brings it here. In the unlikely case someone brings it here. Well, they’ve done it. We’re living in the world of the unlikely already. That’s all I’m saying. I’m not fear mongering. I’m stating the facts and I wonder if everybody else is.

EMANUEL: The reason we can be assured here that this isn’t going to be a major outbreak is we have a CDC that can do very good contact tracing. We have a very good health system that takes universal precautions on all patients, with the gloves. And you’re not regularly in contact with people’s bodily fluids the way it is much more common in Liberia. I think those things distinguish it. And I don’t think we should get into a panic because we were reassured it would never be in the United States.

MATTHEWS: No, the president said it was unlikely two weeks ago. Well, it’s not the unlikely, it has happened. It’s here.

Evidently, the rats are starting to desert Obama’s sinking ship of State.

Such is the cost of idolatry.

So, to summarize, a deadly disease, which has been contained in Africa for quite some time now, is now here in America, while 3,000 American Sons and Daughters, our Brightest and Best, have been sent by Obama to “combat it” and possibly become exposed to it.

What happens when they bring it back home with them?

Please don’t tell me that’s “unlikely”, also.

Oh, and here’s another pleasant thought: I read yesterday that those tens of thousands of “unaccompanied minors” who invaded our Southern Border recently, have been spread all over America by Barack Hussein Obama.

And, as I reported before, they brought tuberculosis and other diseases with them.

Can you say, “Fourth Horseman”, boys and girls?

The greatest United States President in my lifetime, Ronald Wilson Reagan, once quipped,

The trouble with our Liberal friends is not that they’re ignorant; it’s just that they know so much that isn’t so.

Unfortunately, what Obama doesn’t know…could kill us.
