On Tuesday, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) director, Thomas Frieden, appearing on Fox News’ “The Kelly File,” responded to a question from host Megyn Kelly, on why the Obama Administration has not placed a ban on all travel from the West African countries currently being ravaged by the deadly Ebola virus. Thomas said the decision was made by medicine’s guiding principle of “above all, do no harm.”
Of course, Obama’s open-door policy with the world has done a great deal of harm to many Americans.
A portion of the exchange between Kelly and Frieden follows:
TF: We’re always looking at ways that we can protect Americans.
MK: This is one!…A travel ban from West Africa until we are certain that our facilities here are up to the task and that our system has solved the flaws that you today admitted exist.
TF: If we are doing things that are going to make it harder to stop the epidemic there(West Africa), it’s going to spread to other parts of Africa.
MK: How is it (banning flights) going to make it harder to stop it?
TF: Because you can’t get people in and out.
MK: Why can’t we have charter flights?
TF: You know, charter flights don’t do the same thing commercial airliners do.
So, either Dr. Frieden is ignorant of the facts that charter or military flights can easily ensure that medical personnel and supplies are brought to West Africa, and that isolating the outbreak epidemiology 101, or, he is lying…Now, one does not graduate from the Columbia University School Of Medicine (which Frieden did) by being ignorant, so the latter conclusion must apply.
Unfortunately, it would seem that the CDC (a branch of the U.S. Health and Human Services agency)is more concerned with the health and safety of Liberia, than it is with that of the United States.
Of course, the failure to enact a travel ban on those who have recently been to Liberia, Sierra Leone And Guinea, which has resulted in the spread of the virus to this country, is only the latest example of the Obama administration’s disregard for the safety of the American people.
President Obama’s outright refusal to enforce the nation’s immigration laws resulted in a massive influx of so-called ‘unaccompanied minors’ from Central America earlier this year (Now enrolled in our public schools.). Most of those children were sent to cities and towns across the country without first being quarantined, resulting in the following consequences:
-While the CDC claims that only 691 children in 46 states and the District of Columbia have been infected with Enterovirus 68 (EV-D68), hospitals such as Kansas City’s Children’s Mercy have reported seeing nearly that many cases in a single weekend. EV-D68 has left dozens of children paralyzed and is now responsible for the death of at least five children. The virus was found in Central America, according to a 2013 study.
-The U.S. Office of Refugee Resettlement recently admitted that at least 10 ‘unaccompanied minors’have tested positive for active cases of Tuberculosis (TB). “All 10 were released to verified sponsors in the U.S.,” Breitbart reported.-During the summer, several Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) agents reported contracting lice and scabies, while being forced to process and house tens of thousands of illegal aliens. Swine Flu,Chickenpox, and various respiratory viruses were also found to be present in several border patrol stations and detention facilities.
“Two CBP Officers reported that their children were diagnosed with chickenpox within days of the CBP Officers’ contact with a UAC (unaccompanied minor) who had chicken pox. In addition, USBP personnel at the Clint Station and Santa Teresa Station reported that they were potentially exposed to tuberculosis,” reported Fox News.
In addition to the threat of disease, scores of Americans (including children) have been raped and murdered by illegal aliens, under Obama’s watch. In fact, there has never been another time in U.S. history when a president’s actions (or inaction) threatened the lives of the American people, the way our lives are threatened today.
