Ebola versus ISIS: Which is more threatening

Ebola versus ISIS: which is more threatening


America, in the recent past, has been defined by a series of crises and scandals so profound our very existence has been placed at risk. ISIS, a barbaric Muslim group, seeks to decapitate all nonbelievers and an Ebola plague have been added to the mix. Waiting in the shadows until American forces retreated from Iraqi soil ISIS arrived on the scene more virulent than its predecessor. In the space of a few months their ranks have swollen with volunteers from across the planet including America. With their recent surge in Syria and Iraq an unexplainable brutality has followed in their wake. More calculating and better prepared than Al-Qaeda their front is moving quickly to engulf as much as the Middle East as their assets allow. Obama has stammered and stonewalled in meeting this threat head on. His

coalition of nations to defeat ISIS is in name only. America, so far, has led the bombing assault on isolated sites with coalition members adding salt and pepper raids not helping with the more meaty targets. Our national media has hyped up the threat this newest terrorist group projects. Massively small in numbers, ISIS is more bark than bite. Successful media campaigns to keep Muslim hysteria alive has worked for thirteen years but ISIS, as a threat, does not come near the intensity of that posed by Ebola.


Ebola is coming our way. This twenty first century plague will not be contained by speeches or minor gestures from World governments. Hot zones where the virus is flourishing need to be quickly quarantined. Obama’s decision to send 3,000 American troops into the area is nothing less than suicide for many of these brave folks. Once the body captures the virus there is a 50 to 90% fatality rate. No cure presently exists. Hospitals in affected areas have few doctors and personnel. Most have left knowing their lives were at risk. Ebola has mutated many times. Suggestive evidence exists a respiratory component to its transmission is not far behind. Ebola will reach our shores because of the blind-sided actions of our central government. Tens of thousands of visas have been issued to Africans to visit the United States. Many are student visas. Others are for business or vacations. Strong possibilities exist that a few will bring this vermin with them. Unbeknownst to the American Public more infected souls have been brought into the country for treatment than we have been told. With porous borders the potential spread may be amplified by multiples. Ebola is similar to ISIS, the virus has no heart or soul. Yet its virulence is exponentially worse than the scourge ISIS brings to the battlefield. Bad policies, bad politics and insurmountable incompetence will bring ISIS home to roost. Best case scenario a few minds will come to grips with reality concerning this disease and provide a proportional response. As of this writing ISIS is finally receiving the attention it deserves, Ebola is not.

Infectious Borders


Infectious Borders


Catastrophic consequences of Obama’s open border policies are emerging throughout the country in the form of infectious diseases. Enterovirus 68, a very rare strain of this virus, is spreading epidemically across the nation. Rarely seen above the southern border is endemic below it. Thousands of hospitalizations resulting from this contagion have been reported. Asthmatic children have been especially hit hard with this bug. The CDC has been nearly dismissive concerning the potential threat of this pathogen and others that are coming in with the illegal masses. Administration officials have provided only lip service when approached on this subject. An uptick in chicken pox, head lice, MRSA (methicillin resistant staph aureus), scabies and tuberculosis have been noted by border agents. Quarantine facilities are nil. Where they exist the sick and healthy are separated by mere security tapes. Unleashed into our cities and towns these diseases could cause a pandemic resulting in levels of hospitalizations not manageable by the current system. Illegals are being seeded throughout the country. Many states are not being forewarned of their presence. Children from Central America have arrived by the tens of thousands. Instead of deporting them the majority are being scattered across the nation guaranteeing these illnesses will reach our homes, schools and businesses. Screening illegals as they cross the border for contagions has not been a priority of the CDC or the Administration. Physicians have not been put on the alert for the approaching pandemic. To make matters worse more Ebola patients have been coming into the U.S. for treatment in numbers greater than we have been told. Yet silence is the only offering from those empowered to protect the nation.


Contagious diseases recognize no borders. As the tidal wave of immigrants move onto our soil invisible vermin come with them. Chagas disease, dengue fever, malaria, measles and hepatitis are hitching rides on these newcomers. From the uncommon cold virus to the esoteric breed of microscopic disaster no one will be spared the wrath of these cruel enemies. Michelle Obama is worried what our children put in their stomachs. She has minimal regard for the contagions brought into the schools by her husband’s misdirected border polices. What can we do? Stay up to date on recent developments surrounding cross border diseases. Keep in contact with local health departments and schools with consideration for outbreaks of rare and common ailments. With alacrity see your health provider quickly when symptomatic. Pediatric, geriatric and immunocompromised populations are most vulnerable to contracting the array of diseases stated in this article. Lastly the pandemics coming were completely set upon us by absurd federal policies. Vote right next time while we still have the right to vote.
