Some questions about how we are responding to Ebola…

The “experts” claim how difficult catching the Ebola virus is – that we practically have to exchange sweat to catch it.  Dr. Siegel on FOX even claimed that kissing won’t spread it.

This photo represents how difficult it is to catch Ebola…if you have a suit like these…

Why do doctors who treat Ebola patients have to wear suits like these?  Do they know something about Ebola that the likes of Dr. Siegel are not telling us?

If Ebola is so difficult to transmit, how come well-trained US doctors treating Ebola in Africa contracted the disease?

If Ebola is so difficult to transmit, how come these infected missionary doctors were transported in aircraft insulted with three layers of protection?

I suspect the motives of people whose highest priority is to protect people in other nations.  During his congressional hearing, one of the cured missionary doctors insisted  the United States government send troops and millions of dollars to Africa to build infrastructure in hot zones where the natives are suspicious of and resent outside influences.  He held no concern or regard for safeguards in the United States.  His priorities were for his favorite missionary activity.  To hell with us over here.  He couldn’t care less.  And our government salivated all over his suggestion.  Two days later, 3,000 US soldiers were on their way.

In the meantime, we have not restricted incoming flights from infected African nations. Why not?  Because, as the CDC spokesman said, “It is not my call.”  Here is more of the illogic of what’s happening as reported by Breitbart:

CDC Spokesman Dave Daigle stated that the US would not be preventing flights from countries with massive outbreaks of the Ebola virus from coming in to the United States, despite seemingly admitting that the case of Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan showed that airport screening cannot catch every case of Ebola…

When asked whether he would recommend the US simply not allow flights from countries like Sierra Leone and Liberia, Daigle responded, “I don't think so, and that’s certainly not, I'm not even sure if that’s a CDC call.”

And our borders remain as porous as ever, despite the likelihood that a polio-like respiratory disease that is spreading like wildfire among our children is suspected of being spread by illegals.

We are reminded that all staff of US hospitals have been trained in how to identify and isolate those who are suspected of symptoms of Ebola.  Then why did Presbyterian Hospital in Texas send the infected man home from the emergency room after he told her that he recently arrived from Liberia?  He then had three more days to spread the disease.  Here’s an example of CYA for the textbooks:

Hospital officials defended the initial handling of Duncan, issuing a statement describing his fever as "low-grade," and insisting "his condition did not warrant admission." They added that they are still investigating why Duncan's travel history was not conveyed to the doctors who sent him home. Hospital epidemiologist Dr. Edward Goodman told the Associated Press that the patient did not show the riskier symptoms of vomiting and diarrhea.

If several school children in Texas are suspected of coming in contact with one or more Ebola carriers, why aren’t classes in those schools suspended for the requisite 21 days instead of leaving it up to panicked parents to do the smart thing and pull their kids from class?

The most effective way to destroy the public trust in the medical community and our government is to over promise and under deliver.  And that is exactly what they are doing.  If I can spend a few minutes a day over several weeks to come up with a significant list of inconsistencies between medical rhetoric and observable reality, then I suspect most of the rest of our population is noticing the same inconsistencies.  And that is a trigger for failing trust and potential panic.

Ebola comes to America; virus certain to spread

On August 3rd I predicted the first “original” case of Ebola in the US would occur before September.  I was off by a month.  We now have an Ebola victim in Dallas who was spreading his cheer among our population for over 20 days.

Our open borders and lack of sensible and effective profiling and testing at our airports will enable scores of other Ebola victims to enter our country in the coming weeks.

Just a couple of weeks ago, Ebola experts predicted “up to 25,000 cases” may occur.  A few days ago a new prediction was issued:

In a 23 September CDC report, a projection calculates a potential underreporting which is corrected by a factor of 2.5. With this correction factor, approximately 21,000 total cases are the estimate for the end of September 2014 in Liberia and Sierra Leone alone. The same report predicted that total cases, including unreported cases, could reach 1.4 million in Liberia and Sierra Leone by 20 January 2015 if no improvement in intervention or community behaviour occurred.[206]

Here is a revised timetable of how we can expect this disease to spread and the havoc it will cause over the next several months, even in the US:

When…

Event trigger…

Possible reaction of governments

Possible reaction of population 

September 30 First US case -  in Dallas Additional warnings and guidelines will be issued. 

Assurances will be given that Ebola has no chance of spreading in the Dallas area.
Run on surgical masks, especially in greater Dallas area.
Mid October Several additional cases of Ebola will be identified in the greater Dallas area.

Additional African nations report outbreaks.

First US death reported.
Additional warnings and guidelines issued. 

Assurances will be given that Ebola has no chance of spreading in the US
Limitations of large scale gatherings in the Dallas area considered.  One or more schools affected.
November Additional confirmed cases in other US cities.

Several additional US deaths reported.

African cases reach 100,000 and deaths reach 50,000.
Supplemental screening at airports.  Governments consider travel restrictions in affected US cities Panic buying of food and other essentials in impacted areas.  Increased alarm throughout US.
December Spread through many more African nations. 

First cases in Europe reported.

Cases now reported in over a dozen US cities.
Travel bans to and from most of Africa – if not the entire continent.

US government invokes limited travel bans in areas of outbreaks.  Quarantine is established in several locations.  Hundreds of people feared to be infected are quarantined.
Civil unrest in many African nations; death toll increases exponentially; African commerce to other continents begins to be seriously  impacted
January See potential scenario HERE and HERE.   Many from infected countries cross our borders – see HERE. Flights greatly curtailed in the US to and from areas of infected population.  Calls for persons from infected nations to be quarantined. Segments of US population begin considering measures to take to shelter in place to minimize exposure
February Deaths reported in multiple states. Quarantines are extended to a number of cities in the US. Panic sets in among many.  Grocery stores in areas of outbreak are mobbed and depleted as whole communities discover they must shelter in place.
March-December Dramatic increase in number of cases reported.

Epidemic declared in the US.

Death toll in thousands and increasing exponentiallyd in US
Triage centers open.  Marshall law considered in some areas.  Number of quarantine centers increase. 

Restrictions on travel and deliveries begin to cripple commerce and our economy.

National emergency declared.  Detention centers open.  President and military given extraordinary powers.  Increased travel restrictions.

Marshall law established in many locations.   Travel is virtually suspended.
Panic increases.  Civil unrest in most affected areas.  Food shortages result from controls on commerce restricting travel and deliveries. 

See HERE about how civil unrest progresses.
Many people will self-quarantine to avoid other people.  Many will not report to work.

Commerce is crippled.  Civil unrest spreads.  Food shortages increase.  Desperation drives behaviors.

Societal breakdown begins.

While the above is admittedly wild speculation,  the potential is there for something along these lines to transpire.  An Ebola outbreak in the US is just one among many potential causes of societal breakdown and the need to anticipate likely consequences and prepare accordingly.  It just so happens we have this current event unfolding before our eyes at this moment.  Stay tuned…

Situational awareness needed; all is not well…

Here is an excellent comment in response to a Newsmax article on the beheading of the 54 year old Oklahoma woman by a Muslim performing his personal Islam-inspired jihad.

Warren.D.Peace of Rocky Mount has some fine words of wisdom.  Enjoy:

Uffff!

I'm sure relieved that, according to Obama and his spokespeople, there is no actual muslim extremist threat in the home land.

I assume the term "threat" only applies, when 2 skyscrapers full of people are being destroyed. That beheading is therefore purely coincidental and any kind of "man-made disaster" (Obamonics - as opposed to Ebonics) most certainly the act of either criminals, mental cases or disgruntled employees, right?

Alrighty then - Let me, as public service, translate the current situation for y'all in neither uncertain, nor politically correct terms

Obama and Co. have painted themselves into a corner, by not only ignoring but actually denying any form of direct threat in America proper stemming from islamists. Hence, whatever violence or attack could possibly smell like islamist motivated, will be mercilessly silenced, spun into something different or outright denied. With a lot of help and assistance by the liberal media.

After all - we can't possibly allow for Obama to look yet again like a total buffoon, can we now? On top of that, only a few weeks before the crossroads mid-term election, I guess, terrorism on a scale of an extinction event would have to occur, until this administration would admit, that they were once again utterly wrong in their homeland security assessment.

In other words, Folks, under this leaderhip, We The People will not get the real information pertaining to homeland security.

They can't tell us the real truth, otherwise the Pres would look even more the moron he already is widely considered as. We saw in recent weeks alone several clearly islamist-motivated &- inspired acts of violence - let's just be politically incorrect again, and call them terrorism for a change. Have you read about it? Have you been warned of any threats?
Heck, no!

Behind a window-dressing of "not wanting to cause wide-spread panic" in the general population, quite possibly accompanied by a "wide-ranging backlash against muslims" , their clerics and muslim institutions in America proper, up to and not limited to those progressive Professors and teachers like Ward Churchill, that strange guy at Kent University and loons like Jeremiah Wright, who all blame America for islamist acts of terror (and should be shot for it), lays a very real threat to us all. A threat, Obama can and will never admit, as the liberals very survival as a political force in America depends on that promoted falsehood of us Americans living in total safety.

Soft terror, as opposed to the gigantomanism practiced by Al Quaeda of old, literally OBL 2.0, will be the means of intimidating the American People

Indiscriminate serial shootings (like the Beltway Sniper), killing spree shootings like in the Kenyan mall or Ft. Hood, hack-attacks like in London with knives and/or machetes against (former) members of the armed forces, domestic hostage taking/kidnappings with subsequent Utube video-releases, and, last but not least, suicide bombings in other well-frequented places are upcoming "man-made disasters" I, for one anticipate for the near future.

As an experiment, within 30 minutes I found and downloaded from the internet entire manuals, nicely PDF packaged, about bomb making, rifle modifications, counter-surveillance, -forensics and -terrorism measures. Terrorism for dummies - widely available for anyone with a computer and an internet connection.

That, in my humble opinion, constitutes Means, Opportunity and Motive. Anything else required to bring Jihad to a place near you?

But hey, rest easy - according to Obama, Harf, Kerry, Susan Rice, Holder, Psaki, DWS, Reid, Pelosi et al, there is no threat against the homeland....so sleep tight and dream on, America, as there is no bogeyman...

As it would be in the direct interest of a self-serving liberal government to spin such terror actis into individual acts of violence by "disturbed " people, it is literallly up to us now to read between the lines, remain vigilant, arm ourselves (apply for carry permits for concealed weapons), visit the local gun range to brush up on our shooting skills, and at all times look out for our neighbors, friends and families, notwidthstanding, if they live in NY suburbia or rural Nebraska.

Especially in areas with a large muslim community, sorry to be politically incorrect again, you must absolutely be alert, as it takes only one radical with an internet connection and the ability to understand ISIS propaganda to become the core of the next terror cell.

It also only takes only one radical mullah or imam in the next mosque to recruit a handful of martyrs....Does it make therefore sense to be especially vigilant in areas, where you can hear that "beautiful" sound of the muezzine calling the muslims to prayer?

Again - since the gov will not for a variety of reasons admit any danger to you and your loved ones, it is up to you to be ready. Not paranoid, but alert and vigilant. Especially in public places, especially when in company of your children, be aware of your surroundings and the people around you. When in doubt, walk away from the masses. When you hear a gun shot, do not run, but duck and seek cover, then assess your situation and only then take any action.

In Spec Ops lingo, we call that situational or tactical awareness. Know where you are, where the next exit or cover is, and from where any possible danger could originate - at any given time.

And, if you ever have to defend your own, do not hesitate.

Islamic-inspired beheadings begin in US…

Major networks refuse to link to “Muslim” or “Islam”

A recent convert to Islam, a prior criminal, was motivated by his new “faith” to behead a 54 year-old Oklahoma woman – and attempted beheading of a second person - in the name of his religion.  Yet local officials call it merely “work place violence” and national media fail to mention any reference to Islam, Muslims or jihad.

Here are the latest headlines as of September 26, 2014 from Drudge:

BEHEADING IN OKLAHOMA...
REPORT: Suspect tried to convert others to Islam...
Fired After Argument Over Stoning Women...
Celebrated Terrorists on FACEBOOK...
'SHARIA LAW IS COMING!!!!'
'America and Israel Wicked'...
Police classify as workplace violence...
Muslims Shout 'Praise Allah!' Following Press Conference...              Muslim Arrested in Ferguson Threatened to Behead Critics...

If there is any doubt about this beheader’s devotion to Islam, take a look at his Facebook page HERE.  And this Muslim was enamored by Muslim beheadings.  He posted photos of them on his Facebook page weeks ago.  This was planned and premeditated by a Muslim in the name of Islam because of his Islamic-inspired hatred of the infidel and the infidel’s “evil” culture.

While this vile act is common only to Islam, with modern day beheadings committed ONLY by Muslims in the name of Islam, those in government and the media wish to ignore the connection.

We must ask:  Why?  Why do we refuse to make the obvious connection between vile acts by Muslims in the name of Islam with the orthodox Islamic ideology?  After all, its founder, its “holy books”, its predominant leaders throughout its 1,400 years of history all the way up to today, and its current innumerable acts of terror around the world should clearly convince us otherwise.  Why do we insist on ignoring the facts – ignoring reality – ignoring the truth?

Is it our concern of offending the Muslim hoards?

Is it our fear of angering our wonderful Middle East allies?

Is it our concern of upsetting the special interests in our nation who make billions from the Middle East oil trade?

Is it fear of revenge?  Or is it ignorance of Islamic doctrine?

It is probably all of these reasons why the truth of Islamic jihad and terror are ignored.  Any reason but the truth is deemed to be better than the truth:

  • Work place violence – like Nadal Hassan at Fort Hood
  • He was just crazy
  • He felt offended or slighted by somebody or something
  • It’s a mystery

No, it is none of those excuses.  It is Islam, pure and simple. It is not “radical” Islam, because there is no form of Islam that is not “radical.”  These acts are not fringe acts of folks that misunderstand Islam.  There are too many millions of Muslims who cheer them on.  

The longer we, as a society, refuse to accept these realities, the more grief we will heap on ourselves because of our denial.

Here is a prediction concerning the consequences of this Okalahoma beheading by a Muslim in the name of Islam:

  • There will be moral outrage by millions of Americans at this heinous act – and most will rightly make the connection with the doctrine and pronouncements of Islamic doctrine.
  • There will be a right and proper backlash against Muslims
  • The federal government, being a huge defender of Islam, will crack down on free speech, aka expressing the truth about Islam
  • There is “hate speech” legislation waiting in the wings to be adopted by Congress OR enacted by our Muslim president as an Executive Order.
  • Such legislation or Executive Order will make it a crime to express the truth about Islam in a way that offends anyone.  Since Muslims are offended by just about anything, the law will be enforced against anyone who speaks the truth about Islamic doctrine and why Muslims do what they do.

I am not sure what might happen after this point – but it ain’t pretty.

Did Obama direct bombing of empty buildings?

Our Sunni Muslim-inspired president publicly warned Syria, IS, ISIL, and ISIS a week in advance of his announced bombing.  A number of US military videos were shown on national TV and across the internet by various news sources within hours after our attacks.

Here is the result:  The photographs of the buildings being bombed do not reveal any vehicles, people, or activity of any sort around them.  Check out any of the videos shown on the mainstream media on September 23 to confirm this observation.  The most obvious one is posted below.

Where are any signs of activity?  Not one person; not one vehicle is present, except in the “safe” zone outside the front gate.  Could it be possible that the president purposely warned his “enemy” to vacate these facilities prior to our attack?  Well, we all heard him announce the attack would occur.  What would you have done as a result of his warning if you were his Islamist friends in Syria?

HERE is an observation from the ground of the lack of coordination leading to bombing empty buildings:

“Unfortunately, there is zero coordination with the Free Syrian Army. Because there is no coordination, we are seeing civilian casualties. Because there is no coordination, they are hitting empty buildings for ISIS,” Hussam Al Marie, the spokesman for the FSA in northern Syria, told The Daily Beast. “We have been getting promises that the coordination will be coming, but we have been getting promises since the beginning of this revolution and nothing has happened yet.”
