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.
Air Algerie Flight AH 5017 Missing from Radar Flying from Burkina Faso to Algiers across the Sahara … 110 Passengers & 6 Crew on Board (Update: Plane Crash, No Survivors … Wreckage & Black Box Found)
Another plane has gone missing from radar …
The BBC is reporting that Air Algerie Flight AH 5017 has gone missing from radar during its flight from Burkina Faso to Algiers. According to reports, Air Algerie lost contact with the plane about 50 minutes after take-off from Ouagadougou. Spanish airline Swiftair stated that Flight AH 5017 had 110 passengers and six crew on board. Air Algerie has announced that it has launched an emergency plan.
Algeria’s national airline, Air Algerie, says it has lost contact with one of its planes flying from Burkina Faso to Algiers across the Sahara.
Contact was lost about 50 minutes after take-off from Ouagadougou, it said. The plane was last seen at 0155 GMT.
Flight AH 5017 had 110 passengers and six crew on board, Spanish airline Swiftair, which owns the plane, said.
The pilot had contacted Niger’s control tower in Niamey to change course because of a storm, correspondents say.
Algerian and French nationals are thought to be on board.
“In keeping with procedures, Air Algerie has launched its emergency plan,” Air Algerie officials, quoted by APS news agency (in French), said.
Algerian Prime Minister Abdelmalek Sellal reportedly told Algerian radio: “The plane disappeared at Gao (in Mali), 500 kilometres (300 miles) from the Algerian border.”
UPDATE I: Reuters - Contact lost with Air Algerie plane carrying 116 people from Burkina Faso
Spanish private airline company Swiftair confirmed it had no contact with its MD-83 aircraft operated by Air Algerie, which it said was carrying 110 passengers and six crew.
The company said in a notice posted on its website that the aircraft took off from Burkina Faso at 0117 GMT (2117 ET) and was supposed to land in Algiers at 0510 GMT but never reached its destination.
French troops are headed to a remote area in Mali to secure the site of Thursday’s Air Algerie jet crash, the third major international aviation disaster in a week.
French President Francois Hollande announced Friday that there were no survivors in the crash of the MD-83 aircraft, which disappeared from radar less than an hour after it took off early Thursday from Burkina Faso’s capital, Ouagadougou, for Algiers. The plane had requested permission to change course due to bad weather.
French officials have dispatched a military unit to the crash site of an Air Algerie jet that crashed in Mali carrying 116 people after vanishing from radar shortly after takeoff late Wednesday night.
French president Francois Hollande announced Friday that there were no survivors in the crash of the aircraft which disappeared from radar less than an hour after it took off early Thursday from Burkina Faso’s capital, Ouagadougou, for Algiers.
Speaking after a crisis meeting, Hollande also announced that one of the aircraft’s two black boxes has been found in the wreckage, in the Gossi region near the border with Burkina Faso. It is being taken to the northern Mali city of Gao.
Boko Haram Claims Responsibility For Kidnapping More Than 200 Missing Nigerian Girls … Islamist Militant Terrorist Leader Says … “I Will Sell Them … Allah Says I Should Sell”
THE REAL WAR ON WOMEN …
Abubakar Shekau, man claiming to be the Boko Haram leader has claimed responsibility for the mass kidnapping of over 200 Nigerian girls. In a video tape the Muslim Islamist militant leader said, “I abducted your girls. I will sell them in the market, by Allah. There is a market for selling humans. Allah says I should sell.” Over 200 girls were abducted on April 14, 2014 when a school in north-east Nigeria was attacked by members of the Islamist group Boko Haram, whose name means “Western education is forbidden,” in Chibok.
And of course Islam is a religion of peace.
About 230 girls are still believed to be missing, prompting widespread criticism of the Nigerian government.
The Boko Haram insurgency has left thousands dead since 2009.
The girls were taken from their boarding school in Chibok, in the northern state of Borno, on the night of 14 April.
“I abducted your girls. I will sell them in the market, by Allah,” a man claiming to be Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau said in a video first obtained by Agence France-Presse.
“There is a market for selling humans. Allah says I should sell. He commands me to sell. I will sell women. I sell women,” he continued, according to a CNN translation from the local Hausa language.
Boko Haram is a terrorist group receiving training from al Qaeda affiliates, according to U.S. officials. Its name means “Western education is sin.” In his nearly hour long, rambling video, Shekau repeatedly called for Western education to end.
Democrats would tell you that the GOP is conducting a war on women. Sorry, but you trivialize the actual war on woman and their exploitation that is taking place in the world no different than Democrats fauz cries of racism just because someone may disagree with Obama’s policies. As Legal Insurrection states, take a real good look at the real war on women courtesy of Islamists.
Because Islam is a religion of Peace, so they say …
Islamic terrorists attacked the Yobe State College of Agriculture in Gujba, Nigeria and have killed as many as 50 students. As reported by the BBC, students shot dead as they slept. Nigeria State Police Commissioner Sanusi Rufai said that he suspected that the terrorist group Boko Haram was behind the attack.
Islamic terrorists dressed in Nigerian military uniforms assaulted a college inside the country Sunday, gunning down dozens of students as they slept in their dorms and shot others trying to flee, witnesses say.
“They started gathering students into groups outside, then they opened fire and killed one group and then moved onto the next group and killed them. It was so terrible,” one surviving student, who would only give his first name of Idris, told Reuters.
As many as 50 students may have been killed in the attack, which began at about 1 a.m. in rural Gujba, Provost Molima Idi Mato of Yobe State College of Agriculture, told The Associated Press.
“They attacked our students while they were sleeping in their hostels, they opened fire at them,” he said. The extremists also torched classrooms.
There were no security forces stationed at the college despite government assurances, said Mato. The state commission for education, Mohammmed Lamin, called a news conference two weeks ago urging all schools to reopen and promising protection from soldiers and police.
Most schools in the area closed after militants on July 6 killed 29 pupils and a teacher, burning some alive in their hostels, at Mamudo outside Damaturu.
Northeastern Nigeria is in a military state of emergency against an Islamic uprising prosecuted by Boko Haram militants who have killed more than 1,700 people since 2010 in their quest for an Islamic state. Boko Haram means Western education is forbidden.
Decimated Al-Qaeda? Georgia Sen. Saxby Chambliss … “the Threats are Very Reminiscent of What We saw Pre-9/11.” … “the Most Serious … I’ve Seen in a Number of Years.”
My what a difference an Obama presidential reelection year makes … Wasn’t Al-Qaeda decimated? … At least this time Obama did not blame Embassy closings on a video tape.
As reported by FOX News, Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-GA), the top Republican on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said on the Sunday talk show ‘Meet the Press’ that that the threats are “very reminiscent of what we saw pre-9/11″ and the threats as “the most serious … I’ve seen in a number of years.”
The US State Department has now extended the closings of Embassies across the Middle East and North Africa, , as the terror threat across the region remained high through the final days of Ramadan. So how is it that a decimated Al-Qaeda caused the United States to shut down embassies and go on high alert?
Capitol Hill lawmakers, including top-ranking members of intelligence committees, on Sunday described the terror threat that closed 22 U.S. embassies and consulates across the Muslim region as the most serious one since before the 9/11 attacks and related to specific act or plot.
If I had plans to travel to certain places in the Middle East, I would probably go ahead and cancel them,” he said.
Rooney’s comments followed Georgia Sen. Saxby Chambliss, the top Republican on the Senate Intelligence Committee, telling NBC’s “Meet the Press” that the threats are “very reminiscent of what we saw pre-9/11.”
He also described the threats as “the most serious … I’ve seen in a number of years.”
But wait … Didn’t the Obamamessiah tell us during the 2012 Presidential campaign at stump speech after stump speech that Al-Qaeda was decimated and on the run? Barack Obama tried to portray us as some savior of America and that he had defeated Al-Qaeda. But of course with the Lying King, it was all rhetoric and misrepresentations as to what was really going on in the Middle East and terrorism. Obama told us that Al-Qaeda was on the path to death and yet then Benghazi happened. Obama boasted that Al-Qaeda was on the path to defeat and on the run, yet by the looks of the two dozen US Embassies and Consulates closed, nothing could be further from the truth. Barack Obama, the “Campaigner” in Chief would do and say anything to get reelected no matter what. He knows nothing about leadership, it was about being reelected.
Can we just come out and say the obvious … HE LIED!!!

ARE YOU KIDDING!!! US Closes 21 Embassies Due to Al-Qaeda Threat … Obama Officials Meet on Al-Qaeda Threat and Barack Obama Goes Golfing
The don’t call him the “Golfer” in Chief for nothing … Barack Obama is a complete joke as President … When the going gets tough, Obama goes golfing.
So lets understand this, 21 US Embassies have been closed due to what ABC News reporting that Senior U.S. Official intercepted Al Qaeda communications indicate a planned attack ‘Big,’ ‘Strategically Significant’ … and our fearless leader goes golfing. UNBELIEVABLE. How is it that high level meetings can be taking place with such an unprecedented security threats that so many Embassies and Consulates are closed in the Middle East and North Africa and Obama’s sees fit to go golfing yet again? What is actually more important to this guy, he celebrate his birthday, or US security and the war on terror?
Seriously folks, how does Obama go golfing when there was supposed terrorist chatter that has not been seen since 9-11? What is wrong with this man that he cannot comprehend that the perception that he take terrorism seriously matters? There is something seriously psychologically wrong with Obama that he cannot stop golfing in the face of what is reported as the greatest terror threat since 9/11.
On the day that almost two dozen U.S. embassies and consulates across North Africa and the Middle East are closed following the identification of a significant threat from an al-Qaeda affiliate, a senior U.S. official is providing new details about the communications intercepted from the terrorists, telling ABC News that al-Qaeda operatives could be heard talking about an upcoming attack. The official described the terrorists as saying the planned attack is “going to be big” and “strategically significant.”
“The part that is alarming is the confidence they showed while communicating and the air of certainty,” the official said, adding that the group — Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula — appeared to have a media plan for after the attack.
Authorities do not know the exact target of the planned attack, according to the official.
“We do not know whether they mean an embassy, an airbase, an aircraft, trains,” the official said.
Today on “This Week,” Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger, D-MD — the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee — said the intercepted communications called for a “major attack.”
“We received information that high level people from al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula are talking about a major attack,” Ruppersberger said. “And these are people at a high level.”
“It’s a very credible threat and it’s based on intelligence,” Ruppersberger continued. “What we have to do now is the most important issue, is protect Americans throughout the world.”
President Barack Obama: ‘Planet Will Boil Over’ If Young Africans Are Allowed Cars, Air-Conditioning, Big Houses
No he didn’t … HOW RACIST!!!
Lion Lying King – Africa Edition: While on his $100 million trip to Africa, President Barack Obama told individuals at a town hall that if all young Africans are allowed cars, air conditioners and big houses, that the plant would boil over. WHAT!!! No, this was not an SNL skit of Obama, it was actually Barack Obama further embarrassing himself. Obama lectures the young Africans in the audience that they had to have skin in the game and everyone has to do something. Obama also went on to say that global warming constitutes “the biggest challenge we have environmentally,” one greater than all other environmental calamities like “dirty water, dirty air.” Even though that is a lie. So now Obama spreads his politics of fear and lies outside the US?
Just curious, how would such a statement been received by the MSM had Mitt Romney made the same one?
From CNS News:
President Barack Obama said at a town hall event in Johannesburg, South Africa, on Saturday that unless we find new way of producing energy “the planet will boil over” if people in Africa are allowed to attain air conditioning, automobiles and big houses.
“Ultimately, if you think about all the youth that everybody has mentioned here in Africa, if everybody is raising living standards to the point where everybody has got a car and everybody has got air conditioning, and everybody has got a big house, well, the planet will boil over — unless we find new ways of producing energy.”
The VIDEO can be seen at The Gateway Pundit and Jim reminds us … “He’s always trying to keep the black man down”.
According to Obama, global warming constitutes “the biggest challenge we have environmentally,” one greater than all other environmental calamities like “dirty water, dirty air.”
However, the President’s statements do not reflect statistics released by the United Nations: Based on a data released in October, 2012, the World Health Organization estimated that “Global warming” is responsible for approximately 140,000 excess deaths each year.
By comparison, as many as three million people died from indoor and outdoor air pollution – in other words, over 20 times the number of alleged victims of global warming, according to the Word Health Organization.
The list of victims of unclean drinking water is even more staggering.
According to UNESCO, unsanitized water causes billions of preventable diseases annually, from diarrhea (4 billion), cholera (120,000), malaria (300-500 million), intestinal parasites (25% of world’s population), typhoid (12 million), trachoma (6 million), and schistosomiesis (200 million). list from highest to least affected.
