The Ebola Itinerary

Everywhere the NYC Ebola Patient Went During His ‘Self-Isolation’

Between Oct. 17, when he arrived back in New York City from West Africa, and Oct. 23, when he tested positive for Ebola, Dr. Craig Spencer “did attempt to self-isolate,” officials said at a press conference Thursday.

“He was being mindful about contact with people,” said Dr. Mary Travis Bassett, the city’s health commissioner. “Our impression is that he spent most of his time inside his apartment.”

But not all of it.

People have done less traveling while fleeing the advance of Gengis Khan.

Not exactly self-isolation: Ebola patient’s itinerary prompts questions about protocols « Hot Air

Shorter CDC: Our protocols depend upon humans doing things they simply will not do, and doing them to perfection. Because our protocols require perfection in every aspect in order to work properly.

Shorter Bill Quick: Which means they will never work in the real world.

Ebola medical workers face mandatory quarantine at NYC airports – Yahoo News

Cuomo said the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) was aware of the new screening procedures, and agreed that states have the right to protect their borders.

CDC’s guidelines may work elsewhere, he said, but were insufficient for the country’s most densely populated metropolis.

There you go, flyover boobs:  You’re on your own, but NYC is special.

UPDATE:

Department of Health | Statement from the New Jersey Department of Health

The healthcare worker Governor Chris Christie indicated earlier today would be quarantined because of a recent history of treating Ebola patients in West Africa had no symptoms upon arrival at Newark Liberty International Airport earlier today. This evening, the health care worker developed a fever and is now in isolation and being evaluated at University Hospital in Newark.

Good thing they quarantined him.  Otherwise he might right now be out cruising the bars and celebrating his return home.  Maybe with a nice anonymous pickup or two.

GOP to Illegals: Please Come Destroy Us Forever

Brown’s Lead Is All from Latinos, Kashkari Leads Among Whites

A new Public Policy Institute of California poll reveals that the huge lead California Governor Jerry Brown holds over his challenger, Neel Kashkari, can be attributed to one salient factor: Brown’s massive lead among Latino voters. The poll’s data show Brown is winning 73% of votes from Latinos, as opposed to 19% for Kashkar.

Which, I suppose, accounts for this:

Gov. Jerry Brown to Mexican Illegals: ‘You’re All Welcome in California’

Bet a lot of them are voting for him, too.

Why is the GOP so hell-bent on the suicidal notion of duplicating California from coast to coast?

New York, New Jersey Set Up Quarantine Requirement Amid Ebola Threat « CBS New York

The patients with the highest level of possible exposure will be automatically quarantined for 21 days at a government-regulated facility.

As WCBS 880’s Rich Lamb reported, those patients include anyone having direct contact with a person infected with Ebola while in Liberia, Guinea, or Sierra Leone. Those with a lower risk will be monitored for temperature and symptoms, Cuomo explained.

Still bullshit, because this system still wouldn’t have stopped Thomas Duncan, who lied about Ebola contacts, and wasn’t showing symptoms when he was “screened.”

If these two states had simply said, “We will not permit anybody from any of these West African nations to enter our states,” or, “anybody entering our two states from any of these West African Nations will be involuntarily quarantined for 30 days,” I might be persuaded that they are taking this seriously.

But this disease Kabuki?

Nah.

Police prepare for grand jury decision in Ferguson – Yahoo News

FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — Missouri police have been brushing up on constitutional rights and stocking up on riot gear to prepare for a grand jury’s decision about whether to charge a white police officer who fatally shot a black 18-year-old in suburban St. Louis.

The preparations are aimed at avoiding a renewed outbreak of violence during the potentially large demonstrations that could follow an announcement of whether Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson will face a criminal trial for the Aug. 9 death of Michael Brown.

Actually, I think the preparations are likely aimed at flooding the national media with pictures of St. Louis burning and black looters and rioters being shot, in hopes of galvanizing black turnout for Democrats.

Buzzfeed Pushes Dishonest Narrative About Ebola

Congressman Who Wants Ebola Travel Ban Unaware It’s Not Spread “By Airborne”

Still, 85% of Americans said in a recent Harvard School of Public Health poll they thought you’d be “likely” to catch Ebola if you were coughed or sneezed on by someone who had the virus.

Dr. Ron Behrens, a senior lecturer at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine previously told BuzzFeed News “there’s no evidence for that at all.”

Dr. Ron Behrens is, of course, a flat-out liar.

Q&As on Transmission | Ebola Hemorrhagic Fever | CDC

Can Ebola spread by coughing? By sneezing? Unlike respiratory illnesses like measles or chickenpox, which can be transmitted by virus particles that remain suspended in the air after an infected person coughs or sneezes, Ebola is transmitted by direct contact with body fluids of a person who has symptoms of Ebola disease.

Although coughing and sneezing are not common symptoms of Ebola, if a symptomatic patient with Ebola coughs or sneezes on someone, and saliva or mucus come into contact with that person’s eyes, nose or mouth, these fluids may transmit the disease.

Of course, Buzzfeed is not an actual news organization, but rather a collection of propaganda hacks working for the Democrat Party and its President, Barack Obama.

Unfortunately, some uninformed citizens might still take them seriously.

Yeah, the MSM Is Horribly Biased to the Left: Is This News To You?

Why a GOP Wave Election Will Surprise the Media | The Fiscal Times

This year … not so much. The network news broadcasts have only aired twenty-five midterm stories combined. All eleven of the stories on NBC’s Nightly News have been “short mentions of individual contests” rather than in-depth reports on specific races, down from 65 in 2006. CBS Evening News dropped from 58 reports to 14. At least both did better than ABC’s World News Tonight, which has filed exactly zero reports on the elections.

Barack Obama and the Democrats will be held accountable for their performance over the last two years on November 4th. One has to wonder whether the Big Three broadcasters will cover the outcome at all, or better yet, be held accountable for their performance and their biased approach in the aftermath.

The MSM is a guardian and defender of Democrats – nothing more.

Group gathers in silent protest to support Ebola victim

DALLAS — A group of protesters gathered outside Texas Health Presbyterian Dallas for a silent protest Thursday.

The group said its mission was, in part, to demand justice for Dallas’ first Ebola patient, Thomas Eric Duncan.

Fuck your justice, you disgusting, amoral race pimps.

So…how much “pay me” will it take to shut you the fuck up?

Iowa Looking Good For GOP?
Bill Quick

Iowa | early voting | Republican Joni Ernst | unprecedented

This surge may explain why liberal news sites are attacking Joni Ernst for expressing her completely Constitutional views on the Second Amendment.

Well, this surge news is interesting.  I hope it translates into something real on election day.

Sam Levine of the Huffington Post is just horrified by something Ms. Ernst said in 2012:

Joni Ernst: My Gun Will Defend Me If Government Decides ‘My Rights Are No Longer Important’

Joni Ernst, the Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in Iowa, said during an NRA event in 2012 that she would use a gun to defend herself from the government.

“I have a beautiful little Smith & Wesson, 9 millimeter, and it goes with me virtually everywhere,” Ernst said at the NRA and Iowa Firearms Coalition Second Amendment Rally in Searsboro, Iowa. “But I do believe in the right to carry, and I believe in the right to defend myself and my family — whether it’s from an intruder, or whether it’s from the government, should they decide that my rights are no longer important.”

And the problem with that comment is… what again?

Sam Levine supports a government that doesn’t think her rights are important any longer.  And he doesn’t want her to have any effective means of resisting that government.

Fishing season is year around. Just depends on where you are. My uncle built a house in Florida, mostly for the tarpon fishing in winter. Me? I was more a summer crappie kind of guy, with my other uncle. Although I always enjoyed heading north of the Sault locks looking for the mighty muskie. And I have been known to stalk the elusive trout in the Rockie Mountains west of Denver.
