Just when you thought that Obamacare was the greatest healthcare related disaster of the modern era the news has broken that two victims of the deadly Ebola Virus are coming to the USA. The American aid workers who contacted the virus in Liberia are being flown to Atlanta for treatment. Despite the humanitarian idea to treat the duo – Dr. Kent Brantly and missionary Nancy Writebol – at a highly advanced medical facility, it is apparent that any serious consideration of the risk of the virus getting out of containment didn’t cross the minds of our political elite who made the call. The aid organization, Samaritan’s Purse, has been coordinating the transfer with the Atlanta based Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the U.S. State Department. Considering that the State Department is headed by the abject moron John “Skull and Bones” Kerry, the potential for disaster always looms whenever it becomes involved in anything let alone bringing victims of a deadly and highly contagious disease into the domestic U.S.
Ebola has never before been introduced into the United States so the big question is why now? The virus has a 90 percent fatality rate and there is no vaccine althoughaccording to a CNN story one is currently in the experimental stage. Officials are downplaying the understandable public concern over the infected individuals being flown in but the American people have been fed a diet of popular culture fictional epics on infectious disease outbreaks and bio-hazards so good luck with that. Ironic that Atlanta happens to be one of the setting for the hit zombie apocalypse television series “The Walking Dead” isn’t it?.
Libertarian financial blog Zero Hedge in a piece entitled “WHO Warns Ebola Outbreak Out Of Control, “High Risk Of Spread To Other Countries” cites an AP story expressing concerns of the World Health Organization over the rapid spread of the current outbreak:
Dr. Margaret Chan, the WHO’s director-general, said the meeting in Conakry “must be a turning point” in the battle against Ebola, which is now sickening people in three African capitals for the first time in history.
“If the situation continues to deteriorate, the consequences can be catastrophic in terms of lost lives but also severe socio-economic disruption and a high risk of spread to other countries,” she said, as the WHO formally launched a $100 million response plan that includes deploying hundreds more health care workers.
So once again – absolutely brilliant idea to bring the victims here.
An Ebola pandemic, especially if it escapes containment would make the Black Death look relatively mild. That pox wiped out as many as 200 million people (as estimated by historians) but society was relatively primitive back them. In the modern high-tech society that we live in today a pandemic of a disease with a 90 percent fatality rate would cripple economies, shut down systems of transportation and fill the streets with rotting corpses like something out of Stephen King’s classic horror novel “The Stand”.
As horrific as it is to contemplate the human toll of a massive contagion it is even more chilling to imagine what the government response to an outbreak would be. The United States in the aftermath of September 11, 2001 has gone through a steady transformation into a militarized police state, civil liberties have been eroded and the government has already successfully been weaponized against the common folk. Can you imagine what would be ordered by Obama and his rogue regime to contain Ebola were it to actually get into the general population? The state would run amok and further consolidate its already awesome power imposing its will with extreme prejudice. It’s just like the former Obama White House Chief of Staff and current Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel once remarked -” never let a serious crisis go to waste”. It would trigger martial law on a grand scale, especially now that matters of national emergency are all consolidated under the massive Department of Homeland Security including FEMA.
Treating the two Samaritan’s Purse workers in one of the nation’s largest transportation hubs just seems like way to much of a risk to take – I mean why even take a chance on something like this? It is just more of the same lunacy of the US establishment as they continue to play games with other people’s lives as they impose their derangement upon the people who have absolutely no say in the matter.
