Ebola Sneeze - Public DomainHealth experts all over the United States are promising us that we do not need to be worried about Ebola whatsoever.  Even though one case has already been confirmed in Dallas, Texas and another potential case is being monitored, health authorities assure us that we have the greatest health system in the history of the planet and that we will be able to handle any isolated cases very easily.  And all over the mainstream media on Wednesday, there were headlines declaring that the arrival of Ebola in America is a non-event.  One example is this headline from Bloomberg: “Ebola in America? Don’t Worry About It”.  So are they right?  Should the rest of us just kick back and relax because a bunch of really smart guys are assuring us that our health system can easily deal with anything that Ebola can throw at us?  The following are 10 quotes from prominent experts promising us that Ebola will not be a problem in this country…


#1 Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases: “We feel confident that there won’t be an outbreak.”

#2 University of Chicago professor Michael Z. David: “While this all sounds very frightening, there’s no need to worry at this point about Ebola spreading widely here.”

#3 Gerardo Chowell-Puente, an associate professor of mathematical epidemiology at the School of Human Evolution and Social Change at Arizona State University: “Math and history show us that decisive efforts to isolate those who are infected with Ebola and to follow up quickly with the potential contacts of the infected can help to get an outbreak under control. We’re lucky that we have such capacities in the United States; even with the Ebola case in Dallas, the epidemic should not get much of a foothold here.”

#4 Texas Health Director David Lakey: “This is a very sophisticated city, a very sophisticated hospital, … and the chances of it being spread are very, very scarce.”

#5 Zachary Thompson, director of Dallas County Health & Human Services: “This is not Africa. We have a great infrastructure to deal with an outbreak.”

#6 Dr. William Shaffner, an infectious disease specialist at Vanderbilt University Medical Center: “We’re very prepared: Infection-control people in hospitals over the past two months have been reviewing all their infection- control procedures because we anticipated just this sort of thing happening—a person coming from West Africa, they were healthy at the time they traveled, but got sick here.”

#7 Thomas Frieden, the director of the CDC: “It is certainly possible that someone who has had contact with this patient could develop Ebola, but there is no doubt in my mind that we will stop it here.”

#8 Dr. William Shaffner: “Even Doctors Without Borders in West Africa are moving the fatality rate from 50 percent down to 30 percent—I bet we can do substantially better than that here.”

#9 Peter Hotez, dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine and professor at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston: “The Ebola virus is not easily transmitted from person to person, and we have an outstanding infrastructure in place both to contain the virus and trace contacts. There will not be an Ebola epidemic in the United States.”

#10 Thomas Frieden: “The bottom line here is that I have no doubt that we will control this importation or this case of Ebola so that it does not spread widely throughout this country.”

So are they right?

I don’t know.

I hope that they are.

But considering how out of control the Ebola pandemic in West Africa is, I wouldn’t be as dogmatic as those experts are being.

Meanwhile, Barack Obama continues to act as if nothing has changed either.  Even though a number of other nations have shut down all air traffic to Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone, Obama still refuses to restrict air travel to and from those countries

After U.S. officials disclosed another potential case of Ebola in Dallas, Texas, this morning, the question remains whether the Obama administration will finally stop flights from Ebola-stricken countries as multiple nations did over a month ago.

In mid-August, Korean Air and Kenya Airways announced they were halting flights to the West African countries ravaged by Ebola, and British Airways and Air France also decided to suspend service to the Ebola hot zone a few weeks later.

“France is recommending that its citizens leave Sierra Leone and Liberia, two of the countries hardest hit by the worst ever outbreak of the disease,” Jessica Plautz reported for Mashable. “The government said the increasing spread of the disease prompted its request that the airline to suspend flights.”

Yet the Obama administration made no such request to U.S. airlines and government flights, despite the Center of Disease Control advising Americans to avoid “non-essential travel” to Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea several weeks ago.

Obama says that he has a tremendous amount of confidence in the “extensive screening” at our airports.

Would that be the same “extensive screening” that some CNN employees recently experienced?

CNN Senior Medical Correspondent Elizabeth Cohen said when she and two colleagues recently returned from reporting in Liberia, they got a mixed bag of responses from Customs and Border Protection officers.

“We all said we were journalists who had just been in Liberia covering Ebola,” Cohen said. “One of my colleagues was told, ‘Oh, OK, welcome back home, sir’ — and (was) just let in — that was it.”

Cohen herself got a different response.

“I was told, ‘Wait a minute, I think I got an email about this,’ and the border patrol officer went and consulted with his colleagues,” Cohen said.

That officer later told her she should check her system for 21 days.

“I said, ‘What should I be checking?’ And he wasn’t sure,” Cohen said.

And even though it has already been demonstrated that someone from West Africa can bring Ebola over to the U.S. on an airplane, authorities all over the country seem content to proceed with business as usual.

For example, according to Fox News, college students from West Africa “may be subject to extra health checks“.

Or they might not.

No big deal, right?

After all, if a case or two of Ebola does pop up, our health authorities can easily take care of the situation like the experts are saying.


The truth is that we aren’t talking about measles or the flu here.  We are talking about one of the deadliest diseases ever known to mankind.

I think that John Little summarized what we are potentially facing very well…

When you look closely at this virus, it’s hard to see any reason for optimism. It really is one of the most horrifying viruses known to man. It is massively contagious. It has an extremely low survival rate. Those that survive will often die later on – from organ failure, because of the massive internal damage this virus causes to even those who survive.

So those experts better be right.

They better be able to stop this virus just like they are saying.

Because if not, they are going to have to deal with millions of Americans that are extremely angry that they got lied to.

    I’m sure all these health experts are paid better than trolls.

    • guest

      I’m no health expert, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn once……..and in my opinion, If this virus doesn’t tale off pretty soon then their going to have to stage another false flag op.
      Come on people, help a luciferian out, become terrified and run through the streets flailing your arms already.
      It’s getting embarrassing. They’ve had the ‘solution’ to the manufactured problem for quite some time.

  • gop4ever

    Basically big pharma says–Not much profit in selling meds in Africa, so we brought ebola to America

      Just a friendly daily reminder…:::::::

      The Joos and their banking masters are behind it all. Its talmudic supremism (if you’ve ever read it). They are sociopaths and whilst a few of them fall out of this category, most of them are due to their uber-racist holy book (and I have read holy books from 5 different religions). They are exactly what jesus said of them and very few ‘real’ joos are left. There are many joos who do not self identify and they number 100 million worldwide. Israel is not the real people of God. They have been up to this for over 10000 years. Even in Egyptian times, they were called as the people from across the river, from Gehenna (Jewish hell, though this fact is hidden from them). They were drive out of Egypt for their banking practices and have genocided ever since through funding wars and getting tribes to face off against each other. So, don’t forget, who is messing up the nation and the world today.

    The doctors are saying, The Titanic is unsinkable, how did that work out for the ship? Point is, the fever is what to watch out for. Just like the flu or common cold, the fever spreads the particles through the air, the particles then look for a host. The patient in Dallas vomited several times, those in the area, breathing the air, most likely are infected. And we don’t know who cleaned up the vomit or how it was secured. The EMT(s) are more then likely infected as well. The particles are living organisms that look for a host, not sure about how long without a host they can survive. The best thing you can purchase are medical masks, and do not shake hands or touch potential hosts.

  • Richard

    I can’t wait for the first person to invoke ‘God’ so I can point out that ‘God’ was responsible for bringing Ebola to America in the first place.

    • guest

      Really? So how is God responsible for the wickedness of mankind?
      I’m sorry that you’re angry at God. I hope that you can work it out.

      How about satan. And his minions who allow this, the joos?

        I highly doubt that the Jews have anything to do with this epidemic, but they probably will be the first to have come out with helps to fight against it.

    Actually, when (not if) they learn that for the gazillionth time, they have been lied to, they’ll only shrug, since they won’t do anything about it. Most of them won’t be able to: disarmed and stuff like that. Or they won’t much care. “Ehh, Africa got cleaned out. So did Cuba. Hey! Killer land deals!”

  • iris

    first they said it was an indigenous strain. Now it appears to also be airborne and a manufactured strain, in fact, they’re saying it’s mutating exponentially. What does that tell you. God often allows geo political events to fulfill His prophecies, since He gives us free will. Wash your hands, etc!

    • guest

      It tells me that it was manufactured to cull the herd.All the reassurances, don’t worry be happy, are to give it time to spread. I also found it interesting, at the time, when the 3rd world virus incubators were spread through out the country. I found it to be an ironic ‘coincidence’ that this happened shortly after we were told that antibiotics would soon become obsolete. Hmmmm, imagine that. We are facing diseases that we haven’t had, seen for 100 years, ( I have no doubt our government has been busy retooling those diseases while our backs were turned). Now we have no immunity to them, or ability to fight them. No, nothing to see here folks, just keep buying cheap imported junk and ‘food’.

      • iris

        I agree, guest, and yes, the goal is to cull the herd, but also to have another possibility to instill martial law upon the herd in the U.S. A bio weapons strain, imo.

        • Brian Sula

          if the end-goal were martial law, the executive branch would have already begun instilling the bans on travel. From there, they can continue causing “outbreaks” within major cities until a state of emergency is declared; however, we see quite the opposite, as there have been no restrictions in place aside from quarantine in specific cases, and that is only in… i forget, is it new jersey or new york? In either case, the effect of that is minimal

    I’m scared, maybe Gay Veteran can save me.

  • DJohn1

    These people are straight out of MAD Magazine. What me worry?
    When someone consistently lies fairly soon no one believes anything that they say. You simply put the message in a mirror and you get the true message. In this case the warning is very frightening.

    I think we all agree there is something to worry about.
    Now, what has to happen is effective quarantine controls have to be implemented.
    That includes temporarily closing down our airports.
    No one gets in.
    It means closing the huge hole in our southern border with Mexico.
    No one gets in.
    It means rounding up all those illegal immigrants and testing them for EBOLA. It means an expensive deportation for everyone involved.
    Anyone with the disease has to go into quarantine until they get well or they die.
    By all means, attempt to cure them.
    Do it with robotic nurses that can be destroyed afterwards.
    That means putting those robotic nurses together yesterday. Preferably that means waterproofing them. Then regular showers in a bleach solution set at high temperatures to destroy anything that they might pick up from a patient.

    Same goes with all contact with anyone, especially anyone that has been in contact with people coming into the country from abroad.
    The task is virtually impossible because of the logistics involved.
    I think the entire TSA crew at every airport in the country needs regular checkups to determine whether they have picked up EBOLA or not. Hopefully all results will be negative.
    I would rather that the health agencies over-react rather than under-react to this potential disaster.
    When your likelyhood of picking up a death dealing virus is concerned there are no rights of an individual including everyone around you.
    We are talking about the health of anyone that is liable to catch Ebola. That includes your children, your Mom and Dad, your brothers and sisters and anyone that is out there in the public.
    It basically effects every person working in and around a hospital.
    It also effects people caring for our weakened people such as people in a nursing home where close contact with bodily fluids are a normal part of the routine.
    There is a culling of the human herd coming. This Ebola looks like that culling to me. I suspect it could take out an enormous number of people.
    That basically means everyone left has to start over.
    It means disinfecting a large number of dwellings.
    It means a lot of houses will no longer be safe to inhabit.
    Hopefully the officials in charge are not quite that useless at doing their jobs. Part of that job is a Standard Operating Procedure in case of an emergency epidemic.
    It means we need a way that our children can be kept isolated and safe from this disease. That means closing the regular school system down and basically doing the school work either on the internet or on a phone.
    It means keeping our trained personnel that includes all nurses and doctors safe from the disease. That means we do away with the waiting room both in the hospital and the office.
    We have the means to do that with our cell phone technology.
    I do think a thorough investigation as to how this bug got loose in Africa came about. I do not believe in coincidences.
    I just hope that I am wrong about where it came from. But that is a different issue.

    • guest

      If your suggestions were followed then the desired outcome would not be achieved.

  • guest

    Ebola isn’t going to be a problem for America. TPTB are hoping that ebola is going to be one of a few ‘solutions’ to America.

  • Hank

    They are just ten arrogant liberals with degrees, and a fool president that is not capable of leading on anything. Nothing to worry about! Everything is fine! Nothing to see here!
    Remember the people on the spaceship in the animated movie called “Wall-E”? This is how most American people act and think today.

    • Brian Sula

      they seemed happy enough in that movie at least ;)

  • VegasBob

    This reminds me of the lying Chairman of the Federal Reserve, “Benocchio” Bernanke, who in 2007, referring to toxic housing mortgages, said: “Subprime is contained.”

    Guess what? It wasn’t.

    I wonder how many people actually understand that the so-called “experts” are “just guessing” when they proclaim that we can quickly get outbreaks of infectious diseases under control and that these outbreaks won’t become serious problems.

    Gentile Christians are grafted into Israel, Jews who recognize and receive Jesus as Lord and Savior are completed Jews. Read Romans 11, written by a Jew. It’s no coincidence that anti Semitism and the persecution of true Christians surge at the same times in the world. In 30 years, the population of believers in the ME has been decimated by 90%, either by martyrdom or evacuation, forced or voluntary, and that by a different religion than Judaism. If God has forsaken the Jews, then Christians have no assurance either. You can’t have it both ways. Either He keeps His promises or not. A promise is unconditional. We are saved because He keeps His promises in His mercy and grace through Jesus Christ.

    • iris

      Unbelieving Jews need to hear and believe and receive the gospel, just like anyone else does, in order to be saved, but like any other people group, they are made up of individuals. Jesus loves all people, calls all people. He gives us free will, though, since He is a gentleman and created us in His image. I’m only commenting here in response to another comment which is off topic, imo.
