Yesterday the expected onslaught began, with an outrageous ad coming out blaming the lack of action by government and the CDC on the sequester cuts. The ad shows a number of Republicans while the background word "cuts" is played over and over again. And while the more intelligent of us realize that neither the sequester or the Republicans caused what happened, the ad is clearly intended for the low information voters, that group who pays little attention and gets all of its information from sources such as MSNBC, CNN and other heavily slanted news outlets.
Let's look at the facts, shall we? Ebola the deadly virus was diagnosed in Africa where it spread rapidly because of poor medical infrastructure and lack of good sanitation. And normally, the best course of action is quarantine. Isolating patients is clearly the best way to treat such issues, since once the disease runs its course it disappears.
So what did our Administration do, an administration run by and operated with dogmatic personnel who clearly view the world through the most liberal glasses available? They refused to close our borders and insisted on keeping the airlines operational from all points to America, including those very places in Africa which were under siege by the disease. And as American medical personnel performing conscientious care to the sick in Africa become infected, something which the CDC originally said was highly unlikely, they are being transported back to America for treatment. That, coupled with the decision to send over three thousand Army personnel to Liberia to fight the disease can only help the disease to spread exponentially. Even the Army is now stating that the soldiers will be working directly with infected patients and it is likely that some of them will become infected.
The icing on the cake to date is the diagnosis of infection by Nina Pham, a young Vietnamese-American nurse, a graduate of TCU, who was a primary caretaker for Thomas Duncan, the Liberian who traveled to America and lied about his condition to get in the country before going to Texas Medical Presbyterian Hospital for treatment where he died of the disease.
Nurse Pham has now received a transfusion from Dr. Kent Brantly, the first American diagnosed with Ebola and now recovered, who has the same blood type. It is now thought that the antibodies in his blood will play a major role in fighting off the disease. It is really all we have left at this point since the test medicine that was used earlier is in such short supply, as are the necessary haz mat suits which medical personnel need to wear. Meanwhile, Obama and the CDC say we are fully prepared while major hospitals around the country say just the opposite.
Since Nurse Pham is the first American to come down with the sickness here on American soil, we pray for her recovery and hope that the exponential spread of the disease as other clusters are found does not actually happen. But for the Democrats to blame the Republicans for this situation after keeping the borders open and the flights on schedule would be laughable if it weren't so deadly serious. And Obama's CDC Director, Dr. Tom Frieden, should immediately resign for his public pronouncements have been full of propaganda and his decision to literally blame Nurse Pham for her own illness via a "protocol violation" after working diligently to try and save Duncan is an absolute disgrace.
And there's one other thing that we must not forget. At the same time Ebola may be ramping up, we have a huge problem with the new enterovirus which is beginning to kill or paralyze our children. While the government claims no knowledge of how it was transmitted, it seems kind of strange that it has shown up in forty four states at a time when Obama has relocated so many illegal alien children throughout the country. And they are entering school with no health screening or immunizations while our children must follow acceptable medical rules. Strange isn't it how we open ourselves to the world and eliminate our own national sovereignty?
I'll close on one final note. I'll bet that if a man of the caliber of Dr. Ben Carson, a medical man of great integrity and honor, was running the operation we'd have answers and quell the situation very quickly. America can't survive for long being run by a group of ideologues. Let's begin to stop the madness by sending a message in November. And let's pray for a quick end to this situation and a return to common sense in government.
