All Ebola New News Indicates that Obama and Czar "Not in the game"!
New News: 10-30-2013:
State of Maine, nurse who went to Africa at odds over Ebola quarantine
Maine health commissioner Mary Mayhew said late Wednesday afternoon that, even as it continues talks with Hickox's representatives, the state is in the process of filing a court order to require the nurse to abide by a 21-day quarantine. Mayhew cited concerns about Hickox's hands-on role in dealing with Ebola patients, as well as "concerns about the lack of reliability and the lack of trustworthiness in the information that has been received."
"You need to be able to have trust and credibility in that information," the state health commissioner said. "That makes her a higher risk."
Mayhew also blasted what she called "the lack of leadership at the federal level" that has created "a patchwork quilt of state-by-state determinations," vowing that "we will not stand by and exacerbate the situation in Maine."
New News: 10-27-2014:
Army Isolates General and Soldiers Returning from West Africa
The two-star Army general and members of his staff who led the initial military efforts against Ebola in West Africa have been isolated on post as they returned to Italy, the Pentagon said Monday.
New News: 10-28-2014:
Most American voters dismiss President Barack Obama’s appointment of an “Ebola czar” as a public relations move
"Two-thirds of voters say the appointment of an Ebola czar is mostly a public relations move (67 percent). That includes a 53-percent majority of Democrats. Eighty percent of Republicans and 76 percent of independents also see the move as window dressing.
Overall, just 23 percent see the designation of a czar as a serious attempt to help the problem."

with Ebola after passing his entrance temperature exam.
Obama and his associates appear
yet again to be in analysis paralysis over a major leadership issue; this time
it’s Managing Ebola in the best interests of the health and welfare of the American
We have well-established
organizations missioned to manage challenges like this to include:
Dept of Health – Nationally
Dept of Health – In Every
We should have a US Surgeon General as the President’s official
focal point for national health issues – not clear why Obama doesn’t have one
but instead appointed a political-hack to be his Ebola-Czar and media manager.
Help Wanted: Ebola Czar, No
Obama’s pathetic process is
now to take the temperature of arriving persons from countries that are
suffering from the Ebola Pandemic. Even
the most naïve person recognizes that during the 21-day incubation period, those
who are harboring this virus will pass this superficial test and then these “carriers”
may well spread the virus when it breaks out as a mature disease.

New York, New Jersey order Ebola quarantines
“Both New Jersey Gov. Chris
Christie and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Friday they are ordering a
mandatory, 21-day quarantine for all doctors and travelers who have had contact
with Ebola victims in the ravaged countries of West Africa.
The move comes a day after a
Doctors Without Borders volunteer was diagnosed with the disease after
returning to the U.S. a week
after treating Ebola victims in Guinea.
New Jersey Gov. Chris
Christie and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said the case forced them to conclude
that the two states need guidelines more rigorous than those of the U.S.

CDC Director Frieden Acts

The TeaParty-Fundamentalists who have taken over the Bedford
Co. Republican Committee, in addition to other Virginia units, have “censured” three
republican supervisors (who were elected by and are accountable to the voters) and who apparently either will not or do not salute the
Aparently charging forward under the snake-banner were Nate Boyer
and Travis Witt.
These are leaders of the same team that threw the 5th
District Republican Caucus at Farmville into disarray. After loosing that fight, they then launched
a September sneak attack against the 5th District Republican
Committee members at Prospect where they again were thwarted.
The fact that a highly motivated minority special interest clique
can take over a unit's committee does not mean or even imply that they represent
the majority of Republican voters in that unit.
As an example, in Franklin County one such person ran for county public office and was rejected by 87% of the voters.
Something about delusions of grandeur.
It is difficult to comprehend that this group would choose
to take such a negative and divisive action at this time, 11 days from a major
critical election that has the potential to shift the balance of power in Washington.
Why aren’t these “good Republicans” out campaigning for Ed
Gillespie and Robert Hurt instead of fermenting sour grapes?

Director Over Ebola
CDC director: 'Clearly' something went wrong for Texas nurse to contract

Roanoke Times, 10-9-2014, Pg 3: John Heinz Kerry at news
conference in DC on ISIS and Kobani
Secretary of State, John Kerry, made incredibly gross and callous remarks about
the imminent slaughter of innocent people in Kobani.
It’s difficult to comprehend any person, official or not,
making these remarks; and of course the Pravda Media didn’t bat an eye.
“As horrific as it is
to watch in real time what’s happening in Kobani, it’s also important to
remember, that you have to step back and understand the strategic objective.” Kerry to a news conference in Washington.
All this flies in the face of the Obama-Kerry
malfeasance in handling the ISIS and Syrian
issues two years ago and their total bungling now!
But not to worry one’s self about being slaughtered, after
all one has to focus on the strategic objective!
And to reflect that this is the same Jerk who testified to Congress about the malfeasance in Viet Nam.
Just more hope and change we can believe in!
