If you are worried about Ebola you can thank the NRA for not having a Surgeon General.

new captionThe good ole boys over at Breitbart are mad because we don't have a Surgeon General speaking out during this "Ebola crisis". Which, one could argue, is exactly the type of thing that we need: a Surgeon General (not a Czar Mr. McCain) during this time in America.


I was thinking to myself that they might be right, when my e-mail buddy, Greg, sent me a link to a story that I found very interesting.


"There has been no dearth of pundits using various media forums to discuss the arrival of the deadly Ebola virus in America, and they have had a fair measure of success frightening a surprisingly large segment of the population. Republicans and their conservative cabal have even combined their ISIL fear-mongering with their immigration fear-mongering to distract Americans going into an important midterm election. Except for the medical researchers and infectious disease scientists from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and National Institute of Health (NIH), there has been precious little information from real medical professionals of any repute that could relieve the rising fear and anxiety among the population that knows little about the virus, or what precautions they need, if any, to protect themselves and their families.
 
Although experts claim there is little reason for panic of a devastating outbreak of the deadly virus in America, a recent Harvard poll revealed that 39% of American adults are worried about a large-scale outbreak and over 25% are mortified that an immediate family member will be stricken with the infectious virus and die.  What America needs at times like this is a trusted public health expert and medical professional to educate the public about the risk of contracting Ebola and reassure them that there is little to worry about and what steps to take to stay safe and Ebola-free.

On Sunday morning political shows, it was left to an official with the Obama administration, senior advisor Dan Pfeiffer, to talk about the deadly Ebola virus. Obviously, Pfeiffer’s political expertise does not qualify him to reassure the public about a potential infectious disease  health crisis, and it may have led one to wonder exactly where “America’s doctor,” the Surgeon General of the United States, is hiding and why they are not stepping into the spotlight to put Americans’ minds at ease. The truth is this nation has not had a Surgeon General for a year, but not because President Obama failed to appoint an extremely qualified candidate; he did last November. However, the National Rifle Association, no Americans’ idea of an organization concerned with the health and safety or preventing even one American citizen’s death, issued an edict to Senate Republicans that a vote to confirm the President’s appointee meant an immediate end to their political career. Going into a hotly contested midterm election, Senate Republicans did precisely as their NRA masters dictated and made sure America will not have a Surgeon General unless they support spreading the epidemic of gun deaths in America.

Last November 14th, the President nominated Dr. Vivek H. Murthy, an extremely qualified candidate to replace ‘acting’ Surgeon General Dr. Regina Benjamin. It took three months, but the Senate finally got around to holding a confirmation hearing for Dr. Murthy’s appointment. However, the National Rifle Association exerted its very substantial legislative prerogative and blocked Murthy’s confirmation because he does not recognize that the NRA is “fourth and all-powerful branch of the federal government” and called for sane gun restrictions to prevent more Americans from dying unnecessarily from the gun violence epidemic. It is exactly what a real medical professional, and highly-qualified potential Surgeon General of the United States, is supposed to do; help prevent a deadly epidemic from spreading to save American lives." [Source]

Yes, I almost forgot about the good doctor.

The NRA and the gutless cowards in Washington (dems and republicans) failed to get Dr. Murthy confirmed, and so we are left without a Surgeon General at a time when the country really needs one.

Thank you NRA.

Honestly, it's amazing how worked up Americans are getting over a disease that has killed exactly one person here at home and yet we continue to ignore the epidemic of gun violence in this country. But I digress.

"Mr. Obama's nominee for the post, Dr. Vivek Murthy, has fallen victim to congressional gridlock (he must be confirmed by the Senate) over a lighting-rod political issue: guns.

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, blocked Murthy's nomination in February, arguing his non-clinical experience working with an offshoot of a pro-Obama campaign group made him overly political for the job.


Among Murthy's sins, according to his detractors: promoting Obamacare in his role as co-founder of Doctors for America, including a tweet that tweaked the NRA while making his health care argument:"


You never want to "tweak" the NRA. I don't care how many lives are at stake.

Sorry House Negro, but you aren't going to be able to blame Ebola on the NRA.

Nope, the fact that people are dying in America from this disease is squarely on the shoulders of our Bumbler In Chief and his Open Borders at All Costs policy.

This vacuous, amoral, Marxist punk in the White House is willing to sacrifice thousands of citizens to a horrible disease in the pursuit of his dream of the Leftist Transformation of America.

Motherfuck him, you, and any other House Negro who works to enable the worst President in the history of the country.

HAHAHAHAHA

Good joke FN.

You mean the democrat controlled media keeps ignoring it, but you are not allowed to say it out loud.

That QLB person you hate talks about it.

Keep pledging you're allegiance to the same party.

As it was intended.

Imagine, the federal government sending Americans, many that are veterans, police and fire fighters a veiled threat.

Kudos to obama for changing how the government works.



señor kinky said...

Well Bill, they "Republican budget cuts left the CDC unfunded" talking point just got shot down. This lie was the best they could come up with.

Smash the Democrat Lie Machine said...

Meanwhile, back in reality:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will see an 8.2 percent budget increase for fiscal 2014, thanks to a $1.1 trillion spending bill announced by Congress Jan. 13.

This influx of cash will raise the CDC budget to $6.9 billion, which is $567 million more than it received in 2013. This is more than the agency anticipated, because the president’s fiscal year 2014 budget request for it was just $6.6 billion — a decrease of $270 million from fiscal 2012.


That is, the supposedly stingy Republicans blew more on the CDC even than the Democrats asked for, in direction contradiction to the lies being fed to the uninformed.

Of the $6.9 billion, $1.3 billion was allocated to protect the United States from foreign and domestic threats, both intentional and naturally occurring. $255 million will go to support bio-defense efforts, and $160 million will be set aside for states to address their most pressing public health needs. The CDC will get $30 million for Advanced Molecular Detection (AMD), which will help identify potential disease outbreaks earlier and more accurately.

In light of the ad above, it is worth reinforcing that Obama actually suggested cutting funding to the CDC in his 2012 budget proposal.

The Republican Congress has many flaws, but neglecting to spend enough obviously isn’t one of them. If throwing money around in the absence of presidential leadership that means the country well could solve the problem, everyone could relax and go back to watching sitcoms now.

PilotX said...

Good points. But then again the senate Republicans vowed to stop anything coming from the WH so even if the nra didn't have its tentacles in the process they would have found a way to block his nominee.
This also reminds me of the Florida law that would have sent doctors to jail for simply asking patients if they owned a gun because they are convinced it's a plot to confiscate everybody's guns. Let's not think about the fact that accidental gun deaths are common enough to be a health concern and good doctors want to provide info to keep patients safe, oh no we must feed nra paranoia at all costs, even lives. Pro life my ass.

I think a nurse said it very appropriately, "Stop pointing fingers and playing the blame game and fix the problem"

Can a Surgeon General be appointed on an emergency basis for this crisis? and is it absolutely necessary that there be one anyway?

Because I would think that health and hazmat professionals have the knowledge to develop the protocols that have to be put in place for this situation, and the appropriate gear that has to be mandated.

lilacpr2000 is a great example of a Low Information Voter (LIV).

LIV's generally aren't stupid, but live in a bubble of MSM obfuscation. Anyone who takes anything on CNN as fact is a LIV.

The democrats and their media wing have built their success on the cultivation of LIVs.

When events such as the Ebola crisis threaten to burst that bubble, they can respond by obscuring what is happening by blaming Republicans for cutting funds they actually raised, or by denying anyone is filling the Surgeon General position when someone is. Such are the benefits of controlling the Narrative.

In truth, this fetid mix of lies and political correctness is going to get us all killed. Does anyone have a guess at how many Ebola patients can be treated simultaneously in the entire US?

If this source is correct, the answer is 23:

There is a lot that you don't know, or don't want to know. As for what is coming across the border, maybe you should ask a Border Control Agent:

Agents are reporting that they have caught hundreds of illegal aliens crossing our Southern border from African Ebola “hot zones” over the past several months, the majority of them from Liberia, where Dallas Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan is from.

And as a Federal GAO report told us last year, for every illegal caught at the border, an estimated 5 more slip through. So potentially thousands of West African illegals may have entered the United States illegally in just the past 6 months.


Or you could just ask Obama's Department of Defense:

"WASHINGTON, Oct. 8, 2014 – The potential spread of Ebola into Central and Southern America is a real possibility, the commander of U.S. Southern Command told an audience at the National Defense University here yesterday.

“By the end of the year, there’s supposed to be 1.4 million people infected with Ebola and 62 percent of them dying, according to the [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention],” Marine Corps Gen. John F. Kelly said. “That’s horrific. And there is no way we can keep Ebola [contained] in West Africa.”

If it comes to the Western Hemisphere, many countries have little ability to deal with an outbreak of the disease, the general said.

“So, much like West Africa, it will rage for a period of time,” Kelly said.

This is a particularly possible scenario if the disease gets to Haiti or Central America, he said. If the disease gets to countries like Guatemala, Honduras or El Salvador, it will cause a panic and people will flee the region, the general said.

“If it breaks out, it’s literally, ‘Katie bar the door,’ and there will be mass migration into the United States,” Kelly said. “They will run away from Ebola, or if they suspect they are infected, they will try to get to the United States for treatment.”

Also, transnational criminal networks smuggle people and those people can be carrying Ebola, the general said. Kelly spoke of visiting the border of Costa Rica and Nicaragua with U.S. embassy personnel. At that time, a group of men “were waiting in line to pass into Nicaragua and then on their way north,” he recalled.

“The embassy person walked over and asked who they were and they told him they were from Liberia and they had been on the road about a week,” Kelly continued. “They met up with the network in Trinidad and now they were on their way to the United States -- illegally, of course.”

Those men, he said, “could have made it to New York City and still be within the incubation period for Ebola.”

From another blog:

I have a friend (female) who works at a large hospital with *admissions* and it's her job to interview the people to see what kind of benefits and programs they might have available in order that the hospital gets paid.

She said they'd discussed this, but they are currently NOT ALLOWED to ask any potential patient if they've been to Africa recently (especially the ones with Nigerian features and names/accent) because that would be discriminatory.


Because, as bad as spreading Ebola among the patients and staff might be, it would be worse to discriminate.

Yep, we are that crazy here in America.

"She said they'd discussed this, but they are currently NOT ALLOWED to ask any potential patient if they've been to Africa recently (especially the ones with Nigerian features and names/accent) because that would be discriminatory."

Dear Beyond Anon, You do realise that the Ebola outbreak n Nigeria is now entirely contained don't you?

Indeed come next Monday, Nigeria will be declared officially 'Ebola Free'.

The WHO recently applauded Nigeria’s “world-class epidemiological detective work” in tracking down infected patients, after the initial infection spread to secondary and even tertiary contacts.

"“It is amazing to me that they were able to contain the outbreak as quickly as they did,” said virologist Professor Benjamin Neuman,.

Far from demonising Nigerians, given your catastrophic incompetence in Texas, Americans should be asking for Nigerian's help and advice.

Right, because the Nigerians figured out on their own how to beat Ebola.

If it were not for the aid provided by Western nations, millions would be dying in West Africa.

I'll give one thing to the Nigerians, they probably don't let political correctness get in the way of survival.

Sorry but that is hysterical bollocks. Ebola is not a particularly virulent disease, it is not as easily spread as the flu virus for instance. It is primarily a disease of poverty. It spreads in those African countries that have the worst financial situation and have the least to spend on public health. Notice how West Africa's two richest nations - Nigeria and Ghana have the disease under control.

America will see a handful of cases, nobody has ever denied that (especially if your infection control policies are not tightened up) but there is zero chance of exponential Ebola growth in the USA.

Correct.

No, but is a particularly horrible disease, one that causes a quite nasty death.

The point is, numbnut, that there are things a responsible government should be doing to prevent this disease from spreading to the people it is supposed to represent, and it is not doing so.

That kool-aide must taste pretty good, FN.

Oh, and by-the-by, I understand Prezident jay-vee is going to be on tee-vee tonight. Might be doing some of that Prezidentin' stuff.

After all, he cancelled a fund-raiser (and that is only of secondary importance to playing golf).

No shit Sherlock. How is that relevant to the point I was making?

"The point is, numbnut, that there are things a responsible government should be doing to prevent this disease from spreading to the people it is supposed to represent, and it is not doing so."

You've accidentally stumbled on some truth. Well done, that must be a first.

The point is when you have a disease that has a 21 day incubation period there is little or no point in screening people at airports or interviewing anyone that looks like a Nigerian. (!)

Therefore the only way to stop Ebola in the USA is to stop it in Africa. Western governments - all of them - have been far too slow to poor money and resources into fighting this outbreak. Had they done so earlier, this outbreak would be under control already.

We are also paying the price for cutting foreign aid to countries like Liberia. Had we not done so their public health systems would have been better able to cope.

Try again...

From the World Health Organization:

"Recent studies conducted in West Africa have demonstrated that 95% of confirmed cases have an incubation period in the range of 1 to 21 days; 98% have an incubation period that falls within the 1 to 42 day interval."

42 days.

You can read the report here:

There you go again. Facts are a dirty thang in the fields.

They would rather lie/make shit up has they go along.

Like-
"If you are worried about Ebola you can thank the NRA for not having a Surgeon General."


"The truth is this nation has not had a Surgeon General for a year"

Everyone please note what Dr PC, an all-knowing expert has declared that ebola in the USA won't do much. Remember what this Purple nut has said.

Of course, when reality destroys his theory, he will defend it anyway.

There must be a reason why he has not spoken.

The President spoke a couple of hours ago and said that if the virus is not halted in Africa it will become a global problem.

Yeah, why believe those pesky scientists and all their science. We'd rather believe incredibly stooooopid Republicans who babble on about ice cubes in their water. Yep, and why not?
