Yes, The Plan IS To Import Ebola Patients

Africa, Barack Obama, Foreign Aid, Government, Healthcare, Morality

IT’S TRUE. What I reported earlier today, tentatively, has come to pass. The traitors who art in DC are considering using American taxpayer dollars to bring Ebola-afflicted foreigners to the US for treatment. Treason, theft and fraud have been rolled into one “Sensitive But Unclassified, Predecisional” memo, exposed by Fox News, denied and ignored by the malfunctioning mainstream media. (I’ve captures a section; the rest will have to be read on Fox News):

Ebola

The scandal: “State Department memo on Ebola policies.”

Contrast the Australian response of “No thanks.”

“Immigration Minister Scott Morrison announced ‘strong controls’ on arrivals from West African countries affected by cases of the deadly disease.”

More sanity.

Intentionally Importing Ebola?

Barack Obama, Government, Healthcare

The Daily Kurse claims it’s all a vast right-wing conspiracy. Judicial Watch, however, has refuses to put anything past Barack Obama and has, duly, filed a Freedom of Information Act Request for any plans by the Administration to use Phoenix Air to evacuate or transport persons infected with the Ebola virus.

I assume the JW thinking is that the knaves in the White House might attempt to use any ploy to hide their cunning scheme.

Read the request. The reason for it: A suspicion that the “Administration … plan[s] to bring non-citizens to US for Ebola treatment.”

Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, initially told Fox News that his office has received “information from within the administration” that such plans are being developed. So far, only American Ebola patients have been brought back to the U.S. for treatment from the disease epicenter in West Africa.

New Jersey and New York Move To Protect Citizens

Barack Obama, Federalism, Government, Healthcare, States' Rights

The federal behemoth rises on its hind legs whenever a state stands up for its 10th Amendment constitutional rights: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

Barack Obama went to war against Arizona when the plucky governor of that state enforced immigration laws to protect her citizens. The same Strongman is trying to strong-arm New Jersey and New York leadership for taking defensive measures to protect their citizens from possible infection with Ebola, a disease that, as Jonah Goldberg put it, “liquifies your insides.”

No sooner had the Cuomo and Christie administrations announced “a new mandatory quarantine policy” for “medical workers who had contact with Ebola patients in West Africa”—than Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo’s resolve began to crumble. Via The New York Times:

Facing fierce resistance from the White House and medical experts to a strict new mandatory quarantine policy … after urging calm on Thursday night, then joining Mr. Christie to highlight the risks of lax policy on Friday, Mr. Cuomo on Sunday night appeared to try to dial back his rhetoric and stake out a middle ground.

MORE.

My guess is that Christie’s decision on Ebola precautions will bolster the governor’s sagging approval numbers.

All The President’s Women II

Barack Obama, Feminism, Gender, Government

Departing Secret Service Director Julia Pierson, Marie Barf, the sibilant spokeswoman at the State Department, Lois Lerner of the IRS, Martha Johnson, head-honcho for the General Services Administration, and the heavy hitters, Susan Rice, Hillary Clinton and Samantha Power: In “All The President’s Women,” we chronicled the qualities that make some of the president’s women such smashing successes.

But there are more. A “hell of a job” did Sylvia M. Burwell do, as head of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), at preventing Ebola from reaching the US. Two young women have been infected and are fighting for their lives. “We know how to do this, and we will do it again,” boasted House Homeland Security adviser Lisa Monaco, who has also shown great promise, you’ll agree, at executing the one and only duty the feds should legitimately be doing: protecting innocent Americans from the invasion of an exotic killer.

UPDATED: Bar one man, all HHS Regional Leaders are women.

UPDATE II: Decouple From Deadly CDC & Central Government (CDC Crusades)

Federalism, Government, Healthcare, Homeland Security, States' Rights

Another government agency, this time a good, more overarching, yet entirely neutral one: Is that really what that cool brain Steve Sailer is advocating to counter “Ebola Guy”? Tell me it isn’t so.

… there is no organized system, no National Immigration Safety Board to “conduct investigations and makes recommendations from an objective viewpoint. … An official government agency issuing an official government report would be extremely useful in terms of media dynamics.

Tweaking the Gulag of government, with its systemic perverse incentives, is not the answer to the corruptions and malfunctions that are inherent to central government.

Less is more.

Decentralizing; decoupling from the deadly CDC and its federal overlords is what it’ll take. States across the country are rediscovering and reasserting the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution:

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

If, in the ensuing chaos, states reclaim 10th Amendment rights to manage their affairs, responsibility will be returned to smaller, more accountable units. Watch state officials scramble to deport and quarantine for fear of reprisal from local citizens to whom they are beholden. Privatize healthcare and observe hospitals scramble to put in place the best screening and treatment facilitates, for fear of being put out of business by law suits and by competition.

UPDATE I: Nurse Vinson Vindicated (BREAKING): “The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reportedly told Amber Joy Vinson, the second nurse at the Texas hospital that treated Thomas Eric Duncan to come down with Ebola, that it was okay for her to fly even after she told the CDC that she had a low-grade fever.”

MORE lies from The Center.

UPDATE II: CDC Crusades: “Everything But Disease Control.” Superb investigative journalism from Michelle Malkin:

At $7 billion, the Centers for Disease Control 2014 budget is nearly 200 percent bigger now than it was in 2000. … [some of its] recent crusades: Mandatory motorcycle helmet laws. … Video games and TV violence … Playground equipment … “Social norming” in the schools …

MORE MM.

Blaming Men For Women’s Groupthink

Gender, Government, libertarianism, Sex, Welfare

You heard it from the mouth of the Daily Beast’s Eleanor Clift herself, on the McLaughlin Group. Women are less likely than men to identify as independent or libertarian and more inclined than men to stick with the “major brands,” the Demopublicans (the Democrat and Republican colluding quislings). Awful Eleanor, naturally, blames men for the female conformity and affinity for big government: Women know they can’t trust men, so they look to Sugar Daddy Sam to take care of them (by taking from some to give to others).

Via the Pew Research Center come some more well-known yet interesting demographic and socioeconomic correlations with libertarianism.
