You may be concerned about Ebola now that the deadly virus has made its first appearance in the United States. But the risk of Ebola spreading in the United States is very low, say officials from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
A traveler from West Africa arrived in Dallas last week, fell ill and was hospitalized in isolation because of his travel history and symptoms. The CDC later confirmed the man had the Ebola virus.
The 2014 Ebola epidemic is the largest in history, affecting multiple countries in West Africa. However the chances of an Ebola outbreak in the United States are very low, the CDC says.
“The Ebola virus is similar to any infectious disease that health care professionals must deal with on a daily basis, says Steven M. Gordon, MD, Chairman of the Department of Infectious Disease at Cleveland Clinic.
“For any patient with suspected or proven viral hemorrhagic fever such as Ebola, health care providers would follow the CDC’s recommendations for infection control,” Dr. Gordon says. “This means isolating the patient in a private room with a private bathroom while managing and treating the illness in the safest way possible.”
The CDC is asking all U.S. healthcare providers to question patients with Ebola-like symptoms — which include fever, severe headache, muscle pain, vomiting, diarrhea, stomach pain, or
unexplained bruising or bleeding — about their travel histories to determine if they have traveled to West Africa within the last three weeks, Dr. Gordon says.
Here are four things you need to know about the Ebola virus, with information provided by the CDC.
1. You can’t get Ebola from a cough or a sneeze
Ebola is not spread through the air we breathe, the water we drink or insect bites. Ebola is spread when the blood or body fluids of someone who is sick with Ebola comes in contact with another person’s broken skin or the mucous membranes in his or her eyes, nose, or mouth.
Health care providers caring for Ebola patients and the family and friends in close contact with Ebola patients are at the highest risk of getting sick because they may come in contact with infected blood or body fluids of sick patients.
2. To protect yourself against Ebola, wash your hands often with soap and water or use an alcohol-based sanitizer
There is no FDA-approved vaccine available for Ebola. Experimental vaccines and treatments for Ebola are under development, but they have not yet been fully tested for safety or effectiveness.
Do not touch the blood or body fluids (like urine, feces, saliva, vomit, sweat and semen) of people who are sick or handle items that may have come in contact with a sick person’s blood or body fluids, like clothes, bedding, needles, or medical equipment.
You should be especially concerned about protecting yourself from Ebola if you are planning to travel to the areas affected by the 2014 outbreak. Take precautions if you must travel to these destinations.
3. The danger of Ebola spreading in the United States is low
Ebola is not spread through casual contact. So the risk of an outbreak in the United States is very low.
The CDC is taking steps to stop Ebola’s further spread: isolating ill people, contacting people exposed to the person with the confirmed illness in Dallas, and further isolating these people if they develop symptoms.
The U.S. public health and medical systems have had experience with sporadic cases of diseases such as Ebola. In the past decade, the United States had five imported cases of viral hemorrhagic fever diseases similar to Ebola. None resulted in any transmission in the United States.
4. U.S. hospitals are equipped to care for a patient with Ebola
Any U.S. hospital that is following CDC’s infection control recommendations and can isolate a patient in his or her own room with a private bathroom is capable of safely managing a patient with Ebola.
In addition, since the World Health Organization declared the Ebola outbreak in West Africa a public health emergency several weeks ago, medical and public health professionals across the country have been drawing up emergency response plans.
The plans include components such as making sure all workers are trained and equipped to handle patients with travel histories and symptoms that might suggest exposure to Ebola, and proper procedures for handling medical waste.
President Obama chose to lecture the world that ISIS, the Islamic state, is not Islamic; yet again repeating the politically correct but historically incorrect mantra that "Islam is a religion of peace
A world gone mad
By Victor Sharpe October 3, 2014
In this most evil world it must be understood that the meek shall indeed inherit the earth; but sadly six feet under. Until the world is truly made up of a perfect United Nations and not the sham U.N. Temple of Hypocrisy that exists in all its malevolence in New York City, men and women of good will must look to their own safety.
The same applies to nation states and, in today’s frightening world, it applies in particular to the embattled and increasingly besieged and friendless State of Israel. In the vortex of evil that exists in the Middle East, Muslims are busy killing Christians, Yazidis, and when they can, Jews. The very angels in heaven must weep at what mankind has wrought in what once was considered the cradle of civilization.
The towering calamity and cause for so much misery and growing violence, not only in the Middle East but in many parts of the world, must be laid at the feet of the present incumbent in the White House.
President Obama’s highly suspect foreign policy, in which he turned a blind eye to the millions of Iranians pleading in the streets of Tehran for U.S. support against the toxic power of the irrational mullahs, condemned the world to the growing nightmare of an Iranian nuclear weapon.
Similarly, Obama’s fury at Egypt’s overthrow of the Muslim Brotherhood was indicative of where this president’s sympathies seem to lie; not with a pro-democratic rule of law but with the practitioners of Islamic supremacy and hatred of non-Muslims.
The rise of ISIS, replete with the ghastly videos of beheaded Americans, Brits and others, would not have occurred if Obama had not refused to require a U.S. military presence in Iraq. Even during the presidential debate in 2012 with Mitt Romney, Obama specifically said that he would not enter into any agreement with the Iraqi government to station a residual American military force. Thus ISIS and the horrors we now witness can be laid at this president’s feet.
Of course, many will object to what I write. But rank appeasement is in the air and it is Munich all over again. Despite the clearest of all warnings, there still will be those calling for “peace now” even with an implacable and demonic Islamic enemy from whom the only peace will be that of the grave. How witheringly tragic for all humanity.
In an earlier article from January 28th 2011, when Hillary Clinton was still Secretary of State, I wrote the following:
“With Obama and Clinton uttering the most bizarre and na√Øve statements about the so-called ‘Arab Spring’ we are witnessing a foreign policy gone mad. Unless they come to their senses soon, Obama and Clinton, by their ignorance and foolishness, will be seen to have been complicit in the establishment of an Islamic State and a caliphate in the fast dissolving failed states of Iraq and Syria.”
Well it has come to pass and I wish my fears had been proven groundless. Since Clinton’s vacuous term ended, an even more obtuse Secretary of State, John Kerry, has arrived and compounded the idiocy that passes for United States foreign policy.
ISIS, or Islamic State, now exists in vast swathes of Iraq and Syria. All the main cities in Iraq have fallen to ISIS and now Baghdad itself is all but surrounded by the Islamist horde, which by some accounts is but a mere one mile from the city.
Are we to witness in the 21st century yet another fearsome massacre in Baghdad rivaling the horrors that Tamerlane once inflicted upon that same Baghdad in June, 1401, with the slaughter and beheadings of so many that the heads of the dead were piled up into 120 tall towers.
Thousands of men, women and children have already been slaughtered by the Islamo-Nazis, many beheaded in atrocities not seen in living memory since the crimes against humanity perpetrated by Nazi Germany.
The brave Kurds have been begging for months for modern weapons to beat back the head choppers of ISIS who are overrunning scores of Kurdish villages and committing hideous crimes against humanity. Yet still this president refuses to authorize the immediate airlift of vital and desperately needed modern weapons for the defense of the hapless Kurds. Why the delay?
The Obama administration and the State Department have already allowed Lebanon to be subsumed into the Islamic Republic of Iran under its proxy, Hezbollah. Jordan is a ripe fruit ready to be plucked by the Islamists and jihadists who hate the bedouin Hashemite rulers of the largely Arab Palestinian population.
Thus, the Jewish state is bracing as the jihadists topple one Arab state after another in a frenzy of Islamic violence and horror, shrieking Allahu Akbar, the Arabic and Muslim war cry that has echoed down the bloody centuries for fourteen hundred years. But Obama condemns not Islamo-Nazi depredations. He aims his misplaced ire at the building of Jewish homes in Israel’s capital city, Jerusalem. What strange pathology exists here?
The two countries that Israel had peace treaties with, Egypt and Jordan, will have no further need to honor or adhere to those paper treaties should Islamic regimes take hold. So far both Jordan’s King Abdullah and Egypt’s President al-Sisi have held back the depredations of the Muslim Brotherhood, Al Qaida, IS, Hamas, Hezbollah, and the evil puppet master, Iran.
In return for peace - albeit an Arab frigidly cold peace - Israel gave away 90% of the territories it had liberated from Egypt and Jordan during its 1967 defensive war against Arab genocidal violence.
The Arabs, who call themselves Palestinians, were already given land by Israel in Gaza, and in Judea and Samaria (the West Bank), but all who have eyes to see and ears to hear know how worthless land for peace has truly meant.
Israeli concessions were, and are, repaid by the fraudulent Palestinian Arabs with unspeakable terror. Since the failed 1993 Oslo Peace Accords, the hoped for peace between Israel and the Palestinian Authority has resulted in the murder of thousands of Israeli men, women and children. Peace Now? Only believable in a terrifying Kafkaesque world.
In that same earlier article I wrote more than three years ago, I also penned the following:
“Israel is inexplicably hated and loathed by most of the world even as it strives to seek peace with the Arab and Muslim world - a vain hope if ever there was one - so it should now immediately take the following steps to secure its security and strategic strength. Israel must at the very least retake the Philadelphi Corridor. This is the strip of land between Israel and the Mediterranean which would separate Gaza from Egypt but which Secretary of State, Condoleeza Rice, under President George W. Bush urged Israel to vacate as a gesture towards peace. Some peace!
“The farce that has been the ongoing and utterly fruitless negotiations with the Palestinian Authority should be ended immediately and, with Jordan’s likely slide into an Islamic state, all of Biblical Jewish Judea and Samaria (the so-called West Bank) should at long last be annexed.
“Most of the world will still hate the Jewish state but, at least, Israel will have taken the most prudent and long overdue strategic and tactical decisions. Better to be hung as a lion than a sheep.”
Since I wrote those words, Israel did not recover the Philadelphi Corridor, resulting in vast inflows of lethal missiles and mortars entering the Gaza Strip through the hundreds of smuggling tunnels. Endless attempts at negotiating peace with the Palestinian Authority, which allied itself with the Hamas terror organization occupying Gaza, proved again and again to be exercises in futility.
After murdering three Israeli teenagers last July, 2014, Hamas followed up with a barrage of nearly four thousand rockets fired from Gaza onto Israeli civilian targets leading to yet another war. Before that in 2008 and in 2012, Hamas perpetrated similar crimes which led to Israel forced to act against the aggression.
This then is where matters stand. Mahmoud Abbas, a Holocaust denier and putative head of the Palestinian Authority and the Fatah terror organization, launched a vitriolic attack upon Israel at the United Nations thus proving yet again that he is no true peace partner with the Jewish state.
Israeli Prime Minister, at the same United Nations logically reminded the world’s delegates that Hamas is ISIS and ISIS is Hamas - that there is no difference. But in the United Nations General Assembly, with its collection of the worst human rights countries ever found in one place, there is no room for logic. That building is better described as the Theater of the Absurd.
President Obama chose instead in that same loony tunes General Assembly to lecture the world that ISIS, the Islamic state, is not Islamic; yet again repeating the politically correct but historically incorrect mantra that “Islam is a religion of peace.” In doing so he contributed yet more idiocy to a world gone mad.
How anyone could claim to have control over that prospect is an absolute mystery to me!
Ephesians 2:8-9 (NIV)
8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast.
Matthew 11:27 (NIV)
27 “All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.
Neither John Adams nor anyone else could ever make such a claim. You are being foolish, chasing after an absurd dream!!!! Not to mention being both anti-Founder and anti-Jesus at the same time!
Matthew 22:36-40 (NIV)
36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[a] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b] 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
a body of unchanging moral principles regarded as a basis for all human conduct.
an observable law relating to natural phenomena.
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the
political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the
earth, the separate and equal station to which the [Laws of Nature and of Nature's God] entitle
them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes
which impel them to the separation.
[We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by
their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit
There is no doubt what the Founders believed (as a group), religion is personal, morality is universal!!! This nation was founded upon the morality expressed in 'love thy neighbor as thyself', not the Ten Commandments!
'Love thy neighbor as thyself' implies its reciprocal 'all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights'.
There's no other way to see this, that is, for a believer. If I have Rights, then so does my neighbor!!!
Besides, why aren't you listening to Jesus? He said, 'All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.' Unless you are considering Muslims as 'subhuman', you are breaking the law!!!!!!
Muslims or ANY OTHER humans!
You know, this addresses our other discussions. If you follow morality, rather than religion, it would trump religion every time. (Which is why Jesus stated it as the 'second' greatest commandment.) In fact, there could be no preference shown to any point of view, except the moral one, which insists on equality for all. No one could be burdened with another's beliefs, or lack thereof, unless voluntarily.
Obama secretly planning to bring non-American Ebola victims to the U.S. for treatment
Especially ‘MUSLIM’ non-American Ebola victims.
Washington, DC (h/t Pat Dollard) Judicial Watch has learned that the Obama regime is actively formulating plans to admit Ebola-infected non-U.S. citizens into the United States for treatment. Specifically, the goal of the regime is to bring Ebola patients into the United States for treatment within the first days of diagnosis.
It is unclear who would bear the high costs of transporting and treating non-citizen Ebola patients. The plans include special waivers of laws and regulations that ban the admission of non-citizens with a communicable disease as dangerous as Ebola.
One source tells us that the Obama administration is keeping this plan secret from Congress. The source is concerned that the proposal is illegal; endangers the public health and welfare; and should require the approval of Congress.
We have elections coming up next month and Freedom Connector is practically a ghost town! Is this going to be a reflection of the conservative turnout? Hope not! I hope people are more fired up than ever! Maybe it's just because it is not a presidential election? Anyone else want to weigh in?
Two years ago, he said he personally supports same-sex marriage, but that each state should decide for itself.
"Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination." Leviticus 18:22
As of today, his views have changed again – stating, in an interview with the New Yorker,that the U.S. Constitution guarantees the right to same-sex marriages in all 50 states.
“Ultimately, I think the Equal Protection Clause of the U.S. Constitution does guarantee same-sex marriage in all 50 states,” Obama said. “But, as you know, courts have always been strategic. There have been times where the stars were aligned and the Court, like a thunderbolt, issues a ruling like Brown v. Board of Education, but that’s pretty rare. And, given the direction of society, for the Court to have allowed the process to play out the way it has may make the shift less controversial and more lasting.”
“Ultimately, I think the Equal Protection Clause of the U.S. Constitution does guarantee same-sex marriage in all 50 states,” Obama said.
The Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution has been repeatedly cited by judges in the vast majority of the 46 pro-equality rulings that have come from state and federal courts since the Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act last year – a law that was overwhelmingly enacted by both houses of Congress and signed into law by President Bill Clinton.
Obama said he thinks the biggest decision of the U.S. Supreme Court during his presidency was the its recent decision to pass the buck on same-sex marriage.
“In some ways, the decision that was just handed down to not do anything about what states are doing on same-sex marriage may end up being as consequential – from my perspective, a positive sense – as anything that’s been done,” the president said, referring to this month’s Supreme Court decision to let stand lower court rulings in favor of same-sex marriage in five states.
“Because I think it really signals that although the Court was not quite ready – it didn’t have sufficient votes to follow Loving v. Virginia and go ahead and indicate an equal-protection right across the board – it was a consequential and powerful signal of the changes that have taken place in society and that the law is having to catch up.”
Yeah right.... ACCIDENT?????????????????? I DON'T BELIEVE IT FOR A MINUTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Islamic State has released a new video in which it brags that it recovered weapons and supplies that the U.S. military intended to deliver to Kurdish fighters, who are locked in a fight with the militants over control of the Syrian border town of Kobane.
The SITE Intelligence Group, which tracks jihadist social media accounts, drew attention to the video Tuesday. At one point, it appears to show a masked militant raking his hands through a crate filled with hand grenades.
A U.S. Central Command spokesman said he was looking into the reports. In a news release Monday, U.S. military officials acknowledged launching one airstrike near Kobane that they said destroyed “a U.S. airdrop of Kurdish supplies” to prevent “these supplies from falling into enemy hands.”
“All other resupply bundles were successfully delivered,” the CENTCOM news release said, without specifying what was in the shipment.
On Tuesday, the U.S. military announced another four airstrikes near Kobane, saying it hit Islamic State fighting positions, a building occupied by the militants, and “a large ISIL unit,” using one of the acronyms for the group. The U.S. has launched dozens of airstrikes around Kobane in the last week, as the militants besiege the town.
The incident highlights the difficulty in making sure all airdrops are accurate, even with GPS-guided parachutes that the Air Force commonly uses. Airdrops of food and water to religious minorities trapped on mountain cliffs in northern Iraq in August hit the mark about 80 percent of the time, Pentagon officials said at the time.
The United States began dropping weapons, ammunition, medical supplies and other equipment to fighters defending Kobane on Sunday night, in part because Turkey would not allow Kurdish fighters to cross its borders into Kobane to bolster the town’s defenses. Turkish officials said they changed their mind on Monday, but the deal is tentative and depends on whether separate Kurdish groups can resolve longterm differences to confront the Islamic State.
Before World War I, the world was governed mostly by European empires: The Habsburgs still ruled Austria, Hungary, and the surrounding provinces. The Ottomans controlled the Middle East.
The British ruled the seas and an empire on which the sun never set…
During this time period, the world had been benefiting from the unprecedented growth of new technology.
Automobiles and trucks were new on the road. Airplanes were new in the sky. Even the telephone was a plaything of the uber-wealthy.
But as technology advanced, the world grew smaller. As a result, ethnic and sectarian strife expanded… resulting in World War I.
Fast forward to today, and America – along with the rest of the world – is about to repeat the same pattern.
Indeed, despite this country’s strengths, the United States is sleepwalking right into another World War…
You see, with technology pushing the world closer together, and American borders being under duress… all signs point to war. The flash points are many, and it’ll only take one to ignite a conflagration greater than the world has ever experienced.
It would be arrogant to think that mankind is smarter, less violent, or more evolved since WWI.
A perfect example would be Obama’s UN address…
Signs of the Times
When Obama addressed the UN last week, it was no different than his earlier speeches.
He continued to go on and on at length about the “great tradition” of Islam. But, he clearly hasn’t done his research.
He implored the United Nations during his speech to stop teaching hatred, saying, “No children – anywhere – should be educated to hate other people… That means cutting off the funding that fuels this hate.”
It brought to mind a naïve high school student giving a reflexive speech on how to better the world with peace.
The world is not a hospitable place for freedom. The despots of the globe treat their citizens more like slaves. Freedom of speech is rewarded with prison terms – and even death.
So Obama’s words are spoken out of sheer ignorance.
A Righteous Battle
One of the biggest indicators of the approaching World War is the restlessness among sectarian and ethnic groups, as the modern world challenges the ancient dogmas of Islam.
Obama himself pours billions of dollars into the greedy hands of the Palestinian Authority, whom it can be said preaches the toxic hate of anti-Semitism as well as any.
Obama continues to lecture the world on the nature of Islam, proclaiming what he believes to be Islamic or not. The problem is, he is out of touch with the reality of Islam. Muhammad himself in 627 AD, after taking Medina’s Jewish tribe, Banu Qurayza, personally beheaded hundreds of Jews.
Ibn Ishaq, an Arab Muslim historian who lived in the century following Muhammad, describes it in detail: “The apostle went out to the market of Media (which is a market today) and dug trenches in it. Then, he sent for them and struck off their heads in those trenches as they were brought to him in batches… There were 600 or 700 in all, though some put the figure as high as 800 or 900.”
After the killing of all the men, Muhammad enslaved their families (the women and children). This sounds very similar to the tactics of ISIS.
ISIS, rather than repudiating historic Islam, is embracing it.
It’s evident that Obama is more interested in saving the reputation of Islam than he is in saving Christians and Jews from beheadings and mass murder at the hands of ISIS. Things far worse than the great Rwanda genocide (or Pol Pot’s killing fields in Cambodia) are happening on the frontlines today.
And while Obama can pretend that everything will be fine, I can and will not. World War III is inevitable.
Don't you dare say the pledge and if you do TAKE GOD OUT!
This is almost to crazy to believe..The world is overpopulated according to Obamas Ebola Czar!! WOW is this guy a front man for hell or what??
Your support keeps freedom alive!
