The failure of the US, Western Europe and other wealthier nations to provide needed resources to confront the Ebola outbreak is indicative of governmental indifference, as the crisis intensifies in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone and cases are diagnosed outside West Africa. While donor countries have given about $376 million in cash and non-cash contributions to other UN programs, the trust fund itself—a flexible cash resource vital to fighting Ebola—remains scandalously underfunded.
Red Death: Ebola in the United States ~ link ~ Do take the time to read this one in full at the link. Stirling
Every new development in the Ebola outbreak in the United States further exposes the incompetent, indifferent and irresponsible character of the official US response to what the World Health Organization has called “unquestionably the most severe acute public health emergency in modern times.”
The American ruling class and its political frontmen such as Obama view issues affecting the safety and well-being of the American people as annoyances. They detract from the business of generating ever greater profits for the corporations and ever greater fortunes for the rich and the super-rich.
Red Death: Obama plans to bring African Ebola patients to America ~ link ~ WOW ... I have spoken to Paul Martin and he confirms the story. It is time to Impeach Obama NOW over his actions on the spreading Ebola Pandemic!!! We need our military officers to stand up and defend the lives of our citizens!!! This biowar based disease will kill more Americans than ALL OUR PAST WARS IN HISTORY!!! Do take the time to read all of this story at the link. Stirling
Colorado activist Paul Martin contacted me last week and told me his best off-the-record sources were telling him that Obama was going to be distributing Liberians in a checkerboard fashion. On that same day, I received the same information from an email tip and I received the same warning from another confidant as well. The latter two people also implicated the commander of a major military installation as having said the same in a pair of private conversations. Paul Martin will be a guest on The Common Sense Show, on October 19th from 930 pm to 10 pm (Central). You may listen to the interview on this site on the “Listen to Dave” icon in the upper right portion of The Common Sense Show website. The Paul Martin and the other claims are bolstered by the fact that Judicial Watch is now on the record with the same accusation of deploying African Ebola patients to the United States.
I was shaken to my core as I read the words of the highly respected organization, Judicial Watch. The credibility and integrity of Judicial Watch is beyond reproach. It is with great regret and horror that I feel compelled to reprint the following allegations that appeared on the Judicial Watch website.
“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“.
Is this why the military is being deployed to West Africa? Are they going to be engaged in the dangerous transport of Ebola patients to the United States? It would seem that this is the case. As if this is not bad enough, Judicial Watch also published the following disclosure:
“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“.
Even if the Judicial Watch disclosure is not convincing, there is plenty of solid evidence which points in the same direction.
Red Death: Dallas will export new Ebola patients to out-of-area biocontainment units ~ link ~
New Ebola patients in Dallas will be transferred to three top infectious-disease centers in the U.S., a Texas official said yesterday.
“We’re intaking and sending away from Presbyterian now with an idea that Ebola-positive care will be somewhere else,” said Judge Clay Jenkins, the county’s top executive, at a news briefing yesterday. Spokesmen for the hospital didn’t return e-mails and phone calls seeking comment.
Red Death: Weaponized: The case for Ebola coming from a bioweapons lab ~ link ~
Did Ebola really jump from African Fruit Bats to humans in 1976, or has this deadly pathogen emerged from a high-level bioweapons lab?
“Why has the Obama administration dispatched troops to Liberia when they have no training to provide medical treatment to dying Africans?
How did Zaire/Ebola get to West Africa from about 3,500km away from where it was first identified in 1976?”
I almost feel sorry for Tom Frieden, director of the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). So many of his pronouncements have been eviscerated by events within hours or days. He has become a punchline and should resign for the good of the country.
Unfortunately, the Ebola crisis is no joke. Two Dallas nurses (who are special people in my book) have now become infected after taking care of an Ebola-infected patient who illegally flew to the U.S. when he knew he had been heavily exposed to the deadly virus.
To maintain, as does Dr. Frieden, that stopping travel to the U.S. from the few countries where Ebola is running rampant would somehow harm us is illogical to the point of absurdity. And it is now clear to every other sentient being that Ebola is far more contagious, and deadly, than AIDS, to which Dr. Frieden compared Ebola. The latest nugget is that Amber Vinson, the second Dallas nurse diagnosed with Ebola, called the CDC numerous times before boarding her flight from Cleveland back to Dallas and was told it was OK for her to fly because her fever did not quite reach the protocolized threshold!
Red Death: FDA actively blocking fast Ebola detection technology in America ~ link ~ You simply cannot make this crap up!!! Stirling
Common sense would lead you to believe that the U.S. government would be doing everything in its power, now that Ebola has reached American shores, to combat the deadly virus. But if you assumed that, you would be mistaken.
Most people don't know that there is an Ebola screening machine; it is currently available to the U.S military, and the military is using it now. So why aren't U.S. hospitals using it? Because government guidelines prevent hospitals from doing so.
In breaking news, a lab technician who processed blood and other fluid samples from Thomas Eric Duncan, the first known Ebola victim to arrive unexpectedly on U.S. soil, is currently being quarantined on a Carnival cruise ship after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) contacted the company to notify it of a potential disease breach.
The unidentified woman is currently under voluntary quarantine in one of the ship's cabins, along with a travel mate, as the leisure vessel makes its way back to Galveston, Texas. The trip had to be cut short after a scheduled port visit to Cozumel, Mexico, was denied clearance, but the woman is said to be showing no symptoms at this time.
"The employee has been self-monitoring, including daily temperature checks, since Oct. 6, and has not had a fever or demonstrated any symptoms of illness," said CDC spokeswoman Jen Psaki in a recent statement. "It has been 19 days since the passenger may have processed the since deceased patient's fluid samples."
