It is not the business of government to make men virtuous or religious, or to preserve the fool from the consequences of his own folly. Government should be repressive no further than is necessary to secure liberty by protecting the equal rights of each from aggression on the part of others, and the moment governmental prohibitions extend beyond this line they are in danger of defeating the very ends they are intended to serve.
Well, the simple answer is that Ebola hasn’t gone anywhere. Indeed, despite the now near complete media blackout, Ebola is progressing apace in West Africa.
What has happened is that the American news cycle has moved on because both Americans and Liberals, quite rightly, can’t sustain interest in fighting a disease that is endemic to West Africa and which poses only a limited risk to America.
The only reasons it made the news in the first place is because Obama, in the lead up to the 2014 elections, made a big, public deal about it and this resulted in Ebola reaching US shore and being very poorly contained. Once the combination of public outcry causing a tightening of containment procedures and the election being over, Ebola stopped being news.
Well, thanks to the pathetic and now twice-proven dangerous idiocy of the Obama Regime we now have ebola in NYC where I live.
Ebola Has Struck In NYC
Yep! Dr. Craig Spencer, one of the sanctimonious but ultimately irresponsible physicians of Doctors Without Borders, who returned to NYC from treating ebola patients in disease-wracked Guinea has tested positive on the morning of October 23rd for ebola and is now in an infectious disease isolation ward in Bellevue Hospital.

Spencer, who had been “self monitoring” his condition for the previous 10 days since his exposure to ebola, was up and very much about the evening of the 22nd. He went for a three-mile jog, visited High Line Park, road the 1, L, and A subway lines, and took a cab to The Gutter bowling alley in Willamsburg, Brooklyn before returning to his home in Harlem.
How many Americans Dr. Spencer exposed to ebola with his gallivanting about is an unknown.
NYC authorities and talking heads are trying to contain both the spread of ebola in the city and the terror caused by Spencer’s actions on the night before became obviously symptomatic.
Dr. Craig Spencer’s Travels
So now we a a people have the second supposedly responsible healthcare professional to decide that their “self monitoring” during ebola’s 21-day incubation period should include extensive travel via planes and/or trains, only to present with the disease immediately after doing so. But don’t worry; they were perfectly the protocols set forth by Obama’s CDC.
I’ve already asked the question of whether or not Obama wanted ebola to strike the US. Now, watching the progress of ebola within America, another question comes to my mind. Did Obama and his CDC engage in “medical experimentation” in their handling of the late Thomas Duncan’s fatal and communicable illness.
This is more plausible than one might first believe.
It all comes down to the evidence presented by how Thomas Duncan’s case of ebola was handled.
Why wasn’t Mr. Duncan immediately moved to Emory Hospital, one of the best hospitals in the world for dealing with diseases such as ebola and attached to the CDC? It’s where all or most of the infected medical personnel from Africa have been sent. Barring that, why were the CDC largely uninvolved in the treatment of Mr. Duncan? Why instead were local civilian medical personnel put in charge of it with only CDC-approved protocols for them to follow?
The only two answers I can come up with are gross negligence or a planned non-response. While normally I’m among the first to chalk up such things to negligence and/or incompetence, the White House’s and their CDC’s reaction really fits the model for an experiment.
So I have to ask if Obama and his CDC deliberately refused to respond to this initial ebola case in the US as a true emergency requiring the mobilization of CDC resources as a means of testing the in-place procedures and biological disaster response capabilities already in use. After all, various professionals have warned us for over a decade that our response and containment capabilities were lacking and this would be an effective “live fire” exercise to prove or disprove those predictions.
I admit though that it’d be horrendously ironic if this is the case – as it very well might be – since it mean the Black POTUS engaging in “medical experimentation” upon another Black man.
