The Divider in Chief Barack Obama Politicizing Ebola … Why Do Volunteer Healthcare Workers and Military Heroes Treated Differently?
WHAT ELSE WOULD YOU EXPECT FROM A COMMUNITY AGITATOR?
Hmm, haven’t we seen this photo-op before of doctors in lab coats? As only the Community agitator in Chief Barack Obama could do, yesterday he took an issue like Ebola that could affects all Americans and does not care whether one is white, black, brown, green or purple, whether one is straight or gay, man or woman, rich or poor, or Republican or Democrat and managed to divisively politicize it. But what else is new for Obama? Believe it or not Mr. President, we can owe some one a debt of gratitude, consider them heroes and quarantine them so that the good they did in West Africa does not become a bad in the United States.
Obama stated in a stern voice, too bad he does not show the same resolve when speaking about terrorism: “When they come home, they deserve to be treated properly, they deserve to be treated like the heroes they are.” Who says they are not? Just curious though, why didn’t the so-called Commander in Chief say the same about the US military who are in West Africa battling Ebola? When our US military heroes come home, they face a mandatory 21 day quarantine, and properly so.
Once again the out of touch “contrarian president” who has to keep Americans continually pissed off, goes against the will of the American people who by an 80% to 17% margin want Ebola quarantines.
President Barack Obama repeated his message that America needs to support those treating the Ebola outbreak in Africa, saying “the world owes them a debt of gratitude” — even as authorities in Maine weighed whether to enforce a quarantine on a nurse there.
“What we need right now is these shock troops that are out there leading globally. And we can’t discourage that, we need to encourage it, and applaud it,” Obama said Wednesday at the White House, flanked by about a dozen workers who had either just come back from Africa or were preparing to go.
State Department Memo Shows Barack Obama Administration Going to Move Non-Anmerican Ebola Victims to United States
As reported at Special Report, FOX News obtained a State Department memo showing the Obama administration is planning on moving infected Ebola patients to the United States. UNBELIEVABLE. This joke of an administration would bring Ebola infected patients to a country that had no Ebola and had no real policies and procedures in how to deal with it? Exactly who is Barack Obama the president for and what oath of office did he actually take? How could anyone allow non-Americans into the United States to be treated? Haven’t they told us that the only way to protect America was to handle it over there?
OBAMA, YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO BE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, NOT THE WORLD!!! THIS MAN IS LITERALLY TRYING TO RUIN AND BANKRUPT THIS COUNTRY. WHO KNEW OBAMACARE COVERED HEALTHCARE FOR NON-AMERICANS.
A memo obtained by Fox News indicates the Obama administration has been considering allowing non-American Ebola patients into the U.S. for treatment – though a State Department official on Tuesday denied any such plans.
The document was obtained by Fox News from a Capitol Hill source, who said it is a memo prepared by the State Department. The top of the document is marked “sensitive but unclassified – predesicional (sic).”
The “purpose” of the memo states: “Come to an agreed State Department position on the extent to which non-U.S. citizens will be admitted to the United States for treatment of Ebola Virus Disease.”
The document goes on to discuss – and advocate for — devising such a plan. The memo recommends that “State and DHS devise a system for expeditious parole of Ebola-infected non-citizens into the United States as long as they are otherwise eligible for medical evacuation from the Ebola affected countries and for entry into the United States.”
JUST HIS INITIAL RESPONSE JEB?
Former Florida Governor and noncommittal 2016 GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush is calling our Barack Obama saying that his initial response to Ebola was “incompetent”. Jeb Bush made this comment as he was speaking in Nashville, TN at Vanderbilt University on Tuesday. One might first say, what response? Second, one would say, just his initial response Jeb, Obama continues to act incompetently when it comes to Ebola and the risk he is putting America and Americans at. Third, isn’t it par for the course, pardon the pun, for Barack Obama to act incompetently? That has been the theme to his presidency.
Why was there no policy or plan in place to deal with Ebola?
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is calling President Barack Obama’s initial response to Ebola “incompetent.”
“It looked very incompetent to begin with, and that fueled fears that may not be justified,” Bush said during a discussion at Vanderbilt University, according to The Tennessean. “And now you have states that are legitimately acting on their concerns, creating a lot more confusion than is necessary.”
Bush said the president was not “clear and concise” about his plans to combat Ebola, and described an incident in which anthrax was mailed in 2001 to a Florida-based tabloid, The National Equirer, during his time in office as an example of a better approach to addressing public fears.
“We gave people a sense of calm, what the plan was,” Bush said. “We talked in plainspoken English. We were totally engaged.”
EXIT COMMENT: Who finds it ironic that Jeb Bush is calling Obama “incompetent” when for years it was Democrats who called Jeb’s brother, President George W. Bush stupid?
Missing Child Alert Issued for 8 Years Old Peyton Blodgett Missing Since 10/25/14 in Macclenny, Florida (Update: Missing 8 Year Old Boy Found, Taken to Hospital)
A missing child alert has been issued for 8 year old Peyton Blodgett in Macclenny, FL. on Saturday morning, October 25, 2014. Peyton Blodgett was last seen at his grandmother’s home in the area of the 6800 block of State Road 121 in Macclenny, Florida. The 8 year old is also said to be low functioning autistic. The Baker County Sheriff’s Office says the grandmother and her boyfriend went out to do yard work while Peyton and his 5 year old sister watched TV.
A Florida missing child alert has been issued for Peyton Blodgett, a white male, 8-years-old, 4 feet tall, weighing 40 pounds, with brown hair and blue eyes; last seen in the area of the 6800 block of State Road 121 in Macclenny, Florida, wearing white and a blue tie-dye t-shirt, blue jeans, black & white zebra-striped socks, and green tennis shoes.
The sheriff says deputies searched the grandmother’s home over five times and couldn’t find Peyton.
They called in K-9 units to track his scent, and brought in officers on four-wheelers to search the wooded area around the home.
Even neighbors stepped in to help.
“My mother’s house is a couple houses down and it was one of the abandoned houses they couldn’t get access to so I helped them get into the house to search,” said Beck Heyes.
But as the day turned to night, there was no sign of Peyton.
“It’s going to get cold, he’s going to be hungry, he’s going to be scared to death and he’s autistic which makes it even more urgent,” said Heyes.
The Baker County Sheriff’s Office along with the FBI, The Florida Department of Law Enforment and Highway patrol are out again on Sunday.
Peyton has not been found as of 10:30 p.m. Saturday. The FBI and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement’s Missing Persons Department took over the search Saturday night. They will search until local officials return Sunday morning.
The Jacksonville Dive Team will be arriving to the scene at 7 a.m. Sunday to search two nearby ponds. More K-9 units will be brought to the scene. The Baker County Sheriff’s Office will also return to the search area at 7 a.m. Sunday.
Sheriff Joey Dobson said a pond near the address he was last seen at, 6863 South SR 121, his grandmother’s residence, will be searched by divers tomorrow. That’s also when authorities will give the grandmother and her boyfriend, seven-time felon Jerry Carter, lie-detector tests, he said.
“They were outside and [Peyton] was inside. He just disappeared,” said Sheriff Dobson, adding that the youth’s parents were in Gainesville today.
Peyton was last seen in blue jeans and a blue shirt with Daytona on the front and black sneakers.
Most of Mr. Carter’s convictions are for non-violent offenses, save an aggravated assault count on a law enforcement officer, the sheriff said.
“I don’t think it will turn out good,” he conceded.
If you have any information on the whereabouts of this child, please contact the Baker County Sheriff’s Office at 904-259-2861 or 911.
The search is over for an eight-year-old boy with autism reported missing over the weekend, authorities said.
Peyton Blodgett was found safe and appeared to be in good condition, but he remained in critical condition at last check Monday night, a spokesperson for Wolfson Children’s Hospital told First Coast News.
Authorities from several agencies had been searching for Blodgett, the subject of a Florida Missing Child Alert, for two days since his reported disappearance Saturday.
“We have found Peyton Blodgett, probably the best day in 18 years that I’ve had,” said Dobson.
SNL Mocks Barack Obama & His Ebola Czar Ron Klain: Some People Want to Criticize how We have Handled Ebola. It was no way as Bad as How We Handled ISIS Situation …
For years SNL protected Obama and claimed there was nothing funny about him, not any longer … “This whole Ebola thing is probably one of my greatest accomplishments …”
Last nights Saturday Night Live opened with a skit ripping President Barack Obama’s handling of the Ebola virus and his pick of political operative Ron Klain as Ebola czar. The reality is, the skit was reiterating facts and the audience laughed as if it was a punchline. You know it is bad for Obama when even the libs at SNL are mocking him for his clueless ineptitude of handling Ebola and then even referencing other screw ups like the IRS and NSA scandals and the Obamacare website roll out debacle. However, this joke has been a reality to many who have been affected by these scandals. Interestingly enough, SNL did not quite mention all scandals like Fast & Furious and Benghazi-gate where Americans actually died. I guess that wouldn’t be funny, would it?
Welcome to the joke that is the Obama presidency … six years later, it is not very funny to most Americans.
“I assure you, it was nowhere near as bad as how we handled the ISIS situation. Or our various Secret Service mishaps. Or the scandals of the IRS and NSA and I don’t know if you guys remember, but the ObamaCare Website had some pretty serious problems, too. In fact, if you look at all the stuff that’s happened in my second term, this whole Ebola thing is probably one of my greatest accomplishments.”
A journalist next pressed Klain to admit “you have no actual medical training or background in dealing with infectious disease.”
Later in the skit, Obama introduces his political operative Ebola czar Ron Klain, who had some words of wisdom for the worried Democrats ahead of the midterm elections for those who may or may not be affected by Ebola.
“The Ebola virus actually flourishes in warmer climates,” so “if you live in a southern state, such as Louisiana, Arkansas, or Kentucky, you actually may want to avoid any large public spaces like, say, a polling booth.” An “exception, however, is that we believe Latinos in red states may actually have an immunity to Ebola.”
Dr. Craig Spencer Who Treated Ebola Patients in Guinea, West Africa Rushed to NYC Hospital with Ebola-Like Symptoms … Tests Positive for Ebola
GOOD GRIEF ARE YOU KIDDING ME … WHAT IS IT GOING TO TAKE TO TAKE EBOLA SERIOUSLY AND THOSE EXPOSED TO IT … A FULL FLEDGED PANDEMIC?
EBOLA COMES TO THE BIG APPLE … 33 year old Craig Spencer, a Doctors Without Borders physician, who recently returned to the United States after treating patients in Guinea, West Africa was rushed to Bellevue Hospital with Ebola-like symptoms. Craig Spencer returned to NYC and landed at JFK International airport on Oct. 17. According to accounts, Spencer’s temperature was 98.7 degrees upon arrival. Looks like the new so-called protocols of people entering the country are garbage and do not properly screen for Ebola. Hmm, haven’t we been saying that for how long? What part about a 21 day quarantine for those healthcare workers who have been exposed to Ebola is such a difficult concept to grasp? Also, when are healthcare workers going to act more responsibly, themselves?
Craig Spencer and his fiancee have been isolated. This is some what unreal that a doctor who knows the risk of Ebola would subject others and his own fiancee to the disease.
A 33-year-old Doctors Without Borders physician who recently treated Ebola patients in Guinea was rushed in an ambulance with police escorts from his Harlem home to Bellevue Hospital on Thursday, sources said.
Craig Spencer, who was was suffering from Ebola-like symptoms — a 103-degree [SM editors note: correction, 100.3 degree] fever and nausea — spent Wednesday night bowling in Williamsburg, the sources said. He used Uber taxis to get there and back.
He landed at JFK airport on Oct. 17 on a connecting flight from Brussels, a source said. Spencer’s temperature was 98.7 degrees upon arrival, the source added.
Spencer had been working with Doctors Without Borders in Africa, treating Ebola patients in Guinea, sources said.
He’s undergoing testing at Bellevue to see if he has the deadly virus.
“After consulting with the hospital and the CDC, DOHMH has decided to conduct a test for the Ebola virus because of this patient’s recent travel history, pattern of symptoms, and past work,” the Health Department said.
Test results should be available in the next 12 hours, they added.
When are we going to take this fatal disease seriously, does the Obama administration want America to become like West Africa, riddled with Ebola? Stop the PC nonsense and get serious, stop travel from affected countries and provide 21 day mandatory quarantine for those healthcare workers and military forces who have to provide care in these areas. Craig Spencer returned from Guinea, Africa 10 days ago before showing Ebola-like symptoms. NYC Mayor de Blasio says there is no reason to be alarmed. REALLY? Spencer rode the A, L, and No. 1 subway lines, went running, used an Uber livery cab, and went to a bowling alley in Williamsburg called the Gutter. The bowling alley has since been closed and many unsuspecting NY’ers who rode on the same subways are now concerned. Limited contact, do you know how many people there are in New York City? There is no such thing!
Since returning from Africa, Spencer rode the A, L, and No. 1 subway lines, went running, used an Uber livery cab, and went to a bowling alley in Williamsburg called the Gutter Wednesday night, said Dr. Mary Bassett, the city’s health commissioner. He also visited the High Line park in Manhattan at some point, she said. He began exhibiting a fever and diarrhea on Thursday morning.
“Today, EMS HAZ TAC Units transported a patient to Bellevue Hospital who presented a fever and gastrointestinal symptoms,” Basset said in a statement earlier Thursday before the diagnosis. “As a further precaution, beginning today, the Health Department’s team of disease detectives immediately began to actively trace all of the patient’s contacts to identify anyone who may be at potential risk. The Health Department staff has established protocols to identify, notify, and, if necessary, quarantine any contacts of Ebola cases.”
Mayor Bill de Blasio said that the man had limited contact with others since coming back from Africa and was working with health officials to identify them. One of those was his fiance, who was also brought to Bellevue. The mayor also cautioned New Yorkers that their chances of contracting Ebola are very slim, even if you were on the subway with Spencer.
“We want to state at the outset that New Yorkers have no reason to be alarmed,” de Blasio said. “New Yorkers who have not been exposed are not at all at risk.”
But of course Obama is not taking it seriously, he appointed a political operative to be the Ebola czar, rather than some one with healthcare and healthcare management experience.
New York City Doctor Tests Positive For Ebola – Doctor’s Fiancee, 2 Friends Healthy, But Being Quarantined.
At the news conference, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said officials believe Spencer came in contact with four people during the time he was infected and symptomatic, and state officials are already talking to those four people.
Those four people include Spencer’s fiancée and two friends – all of whom are healthy, but have still been quarantined, New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene Commissioner Dr. Mary Travis Bassett said.
The fourth person who is in contact with the state is the driver of an Uber car, which Spencer took when he went bowling Wednesday night in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, Bassett said. The Uber driver had no direct contact with Spencer, and is not believed to be in any danger, she said.
- The panic of Ebola is reaching the people in my area of Canada. People are waiting in long lines to get Flu shots, whether or not they even do any good against Ebola

Airline Passenger at Newark Liberty International Airport with Ebola Symptoms Taken to Newark Hospital
Airline passenger who traveled from West Africa to the United States has been to hospital with Ebola symptoms.
An unnamed airline passenger traveling from West Africa to the United States has been identified at Newark International Airport with Ebola symptoms and has been taken to University Hospital in Newark, New Jersey. Just hours after the United States raised its safeguards against Ebola on Tuesday, requiring travelers from three countries, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, at the center of an epidemic in West Africa to fly into one of five major airports conducting enhanced screening for the virus. But the question remains, why are we allowing them to fly to the United States at all? So what if this passenger tests positive for Ebola? Obama is sing his praises that the system works. But what about the individuals on the plane that were exposed to this possible Ebola individual? What if a person flies to the United States, like Thomas Eric Duncan who came to the US without symptoms, and then tested positive after for Ebola and infected others? Sorry, but the current screening does not prevent that. They can lie and say they have had no contact with Ebola, like Thomas Eric Duncan as well. Only a ban on flights would.
STOP THE FLIGHTS!!!
An airline passenger who arrived at Newark Liberty International Airport on Tuesday afternoon has been held at Newark’s University Hospital for evaluation after exhibiting possible Ebola-like symptoms, government officials said.
“During the enhanced screening process for individuals arriving to the United States from Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea, an individual was identified as reporting symptoms or having a potential exposure to Ebola,” a Centers for Disease Control spokeswoman said.
CDC or state and local public health officials will contact other passengers on the aircraft “should it be determined that there was any risk to the other passengers of exposure to communicable disease,” the spokeswoman said.
Authorities didn’t release the passenger’s name, gender or the country of origin. An ambulance transported the traveler to University Hospital, which has an agreement with the CDC to “detain, isolate and quarantine individuals who are reasonably believed to be infected with Ebola or any communicable disease,” a hospital spokeswoman said.
The person was stopped hours after the Department of Homeland Security announced that flights carrying people from the three West Africa countries most affected by the Ebola outbreak would be routed to five U.S. airports. The majority of those travelers from West Africa arrive at New York’s John F. Kennedy International airport; less than a dozen or so passengers arrive at Newark daily.
RUT-ROH, could we have another case of Ebola?
It is being reported that the boyfriend of Nina Pham, a Dallas nurse that was diagnosed with Ebola, may have contracted the virus from her. The boyfriend’s coworkers at Alcon in Fort Worth were sent a letter saying that he was in a hospital isolation unit, suffering from systems that mimic Ebola.
Rumors swirled Sunday that Nina Pham’s boyfriend was “secretly” admitted to a hospital with Ebola-like symptoms, though the reports were not officially confirmed. Pham was the first person to contract the deadly virus on U.S. soil after she treated Liberian Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan. National fear rose that the Ebola diagnosis rate would grow in the U.S. after Pham contracted the infection, especially if she had spread it to her unidentified boyfriend.
Jeff George, the CEO of Alcon, a Fort Worth, Texas company that specializes in eye care products, sent an email to staff saying someone at the company was hospitalized with Ebola-like symptoms, Got News reported.
In a statement on its website, Alcon said an associate was admitted to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital on Oct. 12 to monitor for “potential signs” of the infection but did not identify the person.
“This measure was taken due to the fact that the associate was in contact with the Texas Health Presbyterian health care worker who has recently tested positive for the virus,” the post reads. “The Alcon associate has not shown any signs or symptoms of the Ebola virus.”
Barack Obama Weekly Address: What You Need to Know About Ebola … Good Grief, Community Organizer Compares Ebola to the Flu
Barack Obama tells America in his weekly Address what you need to know about the Ebola … “If you like your Ebola, you can keep your Ebola.”
This is what happens when you elect a community organizer, a divider and a person who makes everything political, including the safeguarding of America president. Barack Obama has been a failure with the economy, failure with reducing the national debt, failure with Obamacare, failure with foreign policy in the Middle East (Iraq, Libya, Syria, Egypt and Iran to name a few), failure in dealing with Russia, failure in securing our Southern border with Mexico, failure to improve race relations in the US, failure with ISIS and has had so many scandals that Richard Nixon looks like a choir boy. The scandals include Fast and Furious, Benghazi-gate, IRS-gate, AP-gate, James Rosen-gate, Eric Holder perjury. Its reads like an Obama scandal list from A to Z.
Now we are supposed to trust Obama and his cronies with Ebola. Maybe they can do better than the role out of the Healthcare.gov website. During his Weekly Address, this fool actually made the comparison of flu deaths to Ebola. Obama stated, “As our public health experts point out, every year thousands of Americans die from the flu. Ebola is actually a difficult disease to catch. It’s not transmitted through the air like the flu.” Wow genius, really? You would dare reference Ebola and the flu in the same breath? However, Barack Obama is failing to mention that the death rate in the Ebola epidemic has risen to 70%, up from 50%. But Obama wont talk about those facts.
The World Health Organization (WHO) made the announcement at a news conference in Geneva, where officials said there could be up to 10,000 new cases of the virus every week within two months.
Weekly Address Transcript: [comments below in blue, editorial notes]
Today, I want to take a few minutes to speak with you-directly and clearly-about Ebola: [From the president who brought us, if you like your doctor and healthcare plan, you can keep your doctor and healthcare plan, period!] what we’re doing about it, and what you need to know . Because meeting a public health challenge like this isn’t just a job for government. All of us-citizens, leaders, the media-have a responsibility and a role to play. This is a serious disease, but we can’t give in to hysteria or fear-because that only makes it harder to get people the accurate information they need. We have to be guided by the science. We have to remember the basic facts. [When has the Obama administrations ever cared about the facts?]
First, what we’re seeing now is not an “outbreak” or an “epidemic” of Ebola in America. [No, we have two infected nurses and one dead individual from Liberia and too many others who have been exposed to these 3 people]. We’re a nation of more than 300 million people. To date, we’ve seen three cases of Ebola diagnosed here-the man who contracted the disease in Liberia [and was sent home from the hospital the first time], came here [a Liberian man, Thomas Eric Duncan, who lied on his flight questionnaire and came to the US knowing he had been exposed to Ebola]. and sadly died; the two courageous nurses who were infected [one was blamed by the CDC director for not following protocol, the other was allowed to get on a plane with a low grade fever by the CDC and thus exposing others to the disease]. while they were treating him. Our thoughts and our prayers are with them, and we’re doing everything we can to give them the best care possible. Now, even one infection is too many. At the same time, we have to keep this in perspective. As our public health experts point out, every year thousands of Americans die from the flu. [Are you kidding that this moron is making comparisons between the flu and Ebola?]
Second, Ebola is actually a difficult disease to catch. It’s not transmitted through the air like the flu. You cannot get it from just riding on a plane or a bus. The only way that a person can contract the disease is by coming into direct contact with the bodily fluids of somebody who is already showing symptoms. [BS ... Ebola is not AIDS. You can get Ebola from bodily fluids like sweat and saliva left on a plane or bus seat, railing, surface. Also, if some one coughs, sneezes or slits and fluid comes out] I’ve met and hugged some of the doctors and nurses who’ve treated Ebola patients. I’ve met with an Ebola patient who recovered, right in the Oval Office. And I’m fine. [Obama, you are far from fine, but that is a whole other story. Maybe we should make Barack Obama the official greeter at the airport for all peoples coming from West Africa Ebola riddled countries?]
Third, we know how to fight this disease. We know the protocols. [Really, then why did the CDC just change the protocols?] And we know that when they’re followed, they work. So far, five Americans who got infected with Ebola in West Africa have been brought back to the United States-and all five have been treated safely, without infecting healthcare workers.
And this week, at my direction [me, me, me, me], we’re stepping up our efforts. Additional CDC personnel are on the scene in Dallas and Cleveland. We’re working quickly to track and monitor anyone who may have been in close contact with someone showing symptoms. We’re sharing lessons learned [How in the hell did they not have lessons learned from treating Ebola in West Africa?] so other hospitals don’t repeat the mistakes that happened in Dallas. The CDC’s new Ebola rapid response teams will deploy quickly [You mean we already did not have one like in the movie, 'Outbreak'?] to help hospitals implement the right protocols. New screening measures are now in place at airports that receive nearly all passengers arriving from Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone [The same similar screenings that would have still allowed Thomas Eric Duncan into the United States]. And we’ll continue to constantly review our measures, and update them as needed, to make sure we’re doing everything we can to keep Americans safe.
