The most dangerous disease
WE'LL TELL YOU HOW DANGEROUS BROCK EBOLA
TELL YOU HOW DANGEROUS EBOLA IS AFTER THE ELECTION
There had never been a case of Ebola in the U.S. until
a few months ago.
Since then, thousands of people have died of the disease in Africa, and
millions upon millions of dollars have been spent treating Ebola
patients in the U.S. who acquired it there, one of whom has died.
But the Obama administration refuses to impose a travel ban.
This summer, the U.S. government imposed a travel ban on Israel simply
to pressure Prime Minister Netanyahu into accepting a ceasefire
agreement. But we can't put a travel restriction on countries where a
contagious disease is raging.
... The entire Ebola issue is being discussed -- by our government, not
the United Nations -- as if Liberians are indistinguishable from
Americans, and U.S. taxpayers should be willing to pay whatever it
takes to save them.
Maybe we should give them the vote, too! If Ebola was concentrated in
Finland and Norway -- certainly Israel! -- we'd have had a travel ban
on Day One.
Lameduck's attorney general
President Obama announced this week that he plans to make a very
important decision, but not until after the Nov. 4 election.
We're not referring to the forthcoming executive order
immigration policy without congressional input — although Obama
also promised to do that after the election, because the public doesn't
yet "understand what the facts are on immigration" as well as he thinks
Nor are we referring to Obama's more recent deferred promise to defy
Congress by moving several Guantanamo terrorism detainees so that they
can continue to be held indefinitely and without trial or charges in
prisons within close proximity to millions of Americans.
No, in this case, Obama is putting off his decision on who will replace
the retiring Eric Holder as Attorney General. And as in the other cases
noted above, the delay is not encouraging.
When politicians conceal facts and defer important decisions until
after voters have had their chance to weigh in, it is usually because
they have something to hide from those same voters.
For example, when the Obama administration pressured the inspector
general of the Department of Homeland Security to delay until after the
2012 election ...
the long term, what's been the biggest threat to the United States—hell,
or Ebola? That's right. There was plenty of warning too, but the poseur was allowed to fly aboard Air Force One just the same. It's never too late to fire him. If he's impeached and removed, he and Moochie lose their lifetime Secret Service bodyguards and chauffeurs too (???), so there's that.
