UPDATED (1/5/019): NEW COLUMN: Will CDC Trace Polio-Like Outbreak, Or Just Shout ‘Racism’?

NEW COLUMN IS  “Will CDC Trace Polio-Like Outbreak, Or Just Shout ‘Racism’?” It’s currently on WND, The Unz Review, Townhall.com and American Greatness. An excerpt:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) used to trace outbreaks to Patient Zero, the index case—the first patient to get, then transmit, a disease. Is this government agency doing due diligence in the cases of the polio-like paralysis infecting hundreds of America’s kids?

By the dictionary’s telling, epidemiology is “the branch of medicine that deals with the study of the causes, distribution, and control of disease in populations.”

By WND’s telling, “the diagnosis of the first cases of AFM, acute flaccid myelitis, in 2014,” coincided with the dispersal of thousands of Central American children among U.S. school children. More conspicuous at that time “was an outbreak of a deadly respiratory illness” that put hundreds of America’s children in intensive care. “Both types of symptoms can probably be caused by enterovirus D68, which happens to be endemic in Central America,” opines Dr. Jane Orient.

Are the state’s epidemiologists—whose job it is to trace and terminate outbreaks of contagious diseases—following these connections?

An outbreak necessitates the tracing of “Patient Zero,” the “single individual who bears the unknowing responsibility for having introduced the disease” to a certain population.

The same taxpayer-funded medical sleuths impressively tracked down the index case in the AIDS epidemic in North America. As documented in the late Randy Shilts’ And the Band Played On, he was Gaetan Dugas, a dashing, promiscuous, Canadian flight attendant, who had had approximately 1,000 sexual partners.

Although the CDC has provided a perfunctory status-update of its AFM Investigation, the  agency’s mention of a possible genetic etiology for Poliomyelitis, a dreadful, highly infectious viral disease, is bizarre. It reads like a cop-out.

What next? Like the legendary Lancet has done, can we expect the CDC to diagnose “right-wing politics” with folly and fervency for daring to correlate “migration to infection”?

Lest you worried that “the nation’s health protection agency” was putting America First, the CDC boasts of making strides, between January 2017 and September 2018, “Toward Poliomyelitis Eradication”—in Pakistan. (I guess CDC could argue that lots of Pakistanis will end up in the U.S., “looking for a better life.”)

In any event, along for the ride with the thousands of migrants poised to pour into the U.S. from Central America is a healthy array of microbes: measles, Chagas disease, hepatitis and much more. Diversity, baby.

According to Tijuana’s Health Department, via Fox News, 60 percent of the migrants currently encamped on the U.S. border carry respiratory infections. There are, moreover, confirmed cases of tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, chickenpox, and skin infections galore, in addition to lice—these “serve as vectors of diseases like typhus.”  …

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen: “These aren’t my facts, these are the facts.”

UPDATED II (1/9/019): The Newly Branded Trump Admin: Out With The Old (John Kelly), In With The Glitzy & The Ditzy

Celebrity, Donald Trump, Economy, Family, Government, Intelligence

Is Jarvanka, the First-Couple-in-Waiting, AKA Ivanka and Jared, senior White House advisers, no less, branding the Trump Administration with their own glitzy, ditzy, anti-Deporable brand?

It sure looks like it.

The most excellent John Kelly, whom the couple have always hated, likely because he is a hardliner who limits their access to Pater–-he is out.

Kelly’s replacement, the 36-year-old Nick Ayers, “has the endorsements of Jared [Kushner], Ivanka [Trump], and Pence, but not a lot of fans beyond that.” Understandable.

Or, perhaps I should I have written, “Out with the Old; in with the Nauert, to hint at the “nomination of former Fox anchor and State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert.”

AGAIN, the deciding factors in the selection of Ms. Nauert, a former “Fox & Friends” host, is that she is “telegenic,” and the president’s daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, like her.

Looks like I voted for the Jarvanka agenda without knowing it.

UPDATE (12/15/018):

Free Marketeer Chris Edwards, of CATO, had tried to explain to Laura Ingraham why the Kushners’ Opportunity Zones “Will Help Connected Developers, Not the Poor,” but Fox’s host prefers talking non-stop more than learning important things.

UPDATES: Simple Guide To Future Trump Cabinet Picks. Very Simple.

Donald Trump, Family, Government, Homeland Security, Left-Liberalism

I liked the ice princess, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, whom Trump is about to remove, or so the rumor goes.

Nielsen talked tough (very tough) and smart, and has a cool temperament and looks to match. In her favor, too: Nielsen had been brought into the Trump Administration by a fine man, retired United States Marine Corps Gen. John Kelly, now White House Chief of Staff.

Here goes: If the liberal, First-Couple-in-waiting, Ivanka and Jared Kushner, are behind or favor a future appointment, it’s bad. The two certainly have been gunning for White House Chief of Staff Kelly for a long time, as I warned on February 15, 2018.

UPDATES:

“Sessions was the most important member of Trump’s cabinet.”

“Heather Mac Donald said she has ‘no confidence’ that the president will stop being advised by his daughter, Ivanka Trump, on the issue of immigration.” Been saying it all along. Ivanka is poison.

“Sessions was the only member of the Trump administration that was ‘absolutely staunch in speaking up for the right of Americans to determine what the character of their country should be.’”

“There’s no one left with any understanding ‘how mass, unchecked, illegal immigration is hurting the working class of this country and transforming our culture possibly beyond recall.’ Heather Mac Donald.”

Special Counsel Mueller Exposed: Accused Russian Spooks Call Lying Robert Mueller’s Bluff

Government, Justice, Law, Russia, The State

What do you know?! The Russians accused by Robert Mueller of wrongdoing called the special counsel’s bluff. They showed up in court and demanded due process of law. Damn straight!

If you’re The Law, you can’t just indict people based on invented laws not on the books.

A Washington federal judge on Thursday ordered special counsel Robert Mueller’s team to clarify election meddling claims lodged against a Russian company operated by Yevgeny Prigozhin, an ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to Bloomberg.

Concord Management and Consulting, LLC. – one of three businesses indicted by Mueller in February along with 13 individuals for election meddling, surprised the special counsel in April when they actually showed up in court to fight the charges. Mueller’s team tried to delay Concord from entering the case, arguing that the Russian company not been properly served, however Judge Dabney Friedrich denied the request – effectively telling prosecutors ‘well, they’re here.’

Concord was accused in the indictment of supporting the Internet Research Agency (IRA), a Russian ‘troll farm’ accused of trying to influence the 2016 US election.

On Thursday, Judge Freidrich asked Mueller’s prosecutors if she should assume they aren’t accusing Concord of violating US laws applicable to election expenditures and failure to register as a foreign agent.

Concord has asked Dabney to throw out the charges – claiming that Mueller’s office fabricated a crime, and that there is no law against interfering in elections. …
