Now we know: It's time to panic.

"BREAKING: Obama postpones campaign trip to convene cabinet meeting on Ebola."

UPDATE: The link goes to the front page of the Wall Street Journal, and with the story no longer "breaking," you can find it, with the same title, is here.

It is funny in a gallows humor sort of way, but the attempt to stamp down 'panic' has gotten people infected and will get people killed.

Obama Postpones Campaign Trip to Convene Cabinet Meeting on Ebola

traditionalguy said...

Obama has a ready method for making everything worse: 1)he recognises a problem 2) he creates a massive Federal Bureaucracy complete with its own militarized police force with a 10 year ammo supply, 3) he appoints the dumbest single/lesbian woman he can find to pose as its Czar and do nothing at all about the problem.

An epidemic is possible if the number of new people infected by each sick person averages greater than 1. We appear to be at 2, and these infections appear to have occurred after he was identified as having ebola.

That is not a good sign. Hopefully the updated CDC protocols will improve the situation, but only time will tell.

CStanley said...

The greatest significance of this is that today may mark the day that Obama finally realizes he's become a laughingstock. It's his political team that is now in full blown panic mode, I suspect.

Unfortunately though this also has real repercussions. Every step of the way, the messaging and handling of Ebola has been bungled, so now, the emergency meeting signals that the people who have the most information about the situation are panicking, and they are the same people who have already been proven incompetent.

RecChief said...

"What if the meeting is in regards to the panic already being promoted out there?"


You are probably correct in that. This meeting is probably to determine how to manage the optics of the fact that there isn't any leadership (evidence is taking the word of Sebelius that the Obamacare website was ready to go). You're most likely correct that the meeting isn't to discuss how to contain a possible outbreak by reversing the decision to ban flights from Africa, or how to contain the virus' spread any farther than it already has. Very insightful, Crack.

"I remember they suspended all air transportation after 9/11, but we can't suspend the small number of flights coming from West Africa."

As Jon Stewart pointed out, where was this thinking about 150-200 years ago? Then, you couldn't stop white men from wanting to bring blacks here. Now? It's either keep them from arriving or - if the ones here aren't happy - send 'em back to Africa (where we don't come from)!

And the best part is, as they display their racism, whites don't notice a thing - including the fact we're watching them as they try to pass their racist ideas off as reasonable thinking or common sense.

Just keep everyone from West Africa out?

How about if we try keeping whites from America quiet for a change?

I mean, if this constant refrain of panic is their traditional mode of operation (and it appears to be - over Indians when they got here, Ebola, gay marriage, BENGHAZI, blacks, women, technology, whatever) then we obviously need cooler heads to lead.

Y'all's making a mess of things with your whole approach,..

Screw the HHS Asst Sec in charge of Disaster response. Screw the CDC boss who made his name fighting trans-aft.

Show me the Commander of U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID)

I doubt they have lost interest in bug battles.

Have the POTUS stand up and say after talking to the Cabinet, he has ordered the Implementation of Plan "Solitary" and directed the CDR of USAMRIID to coordinate the national response.

http://www.usamriid.army.mil/

Since its inception in 1969, USAMRIID has spearheaded research to develop medical solutions—vaccines, drugs, diagnostics, and information—to protect our military service members from biological threats. Our specialized capabilities include Biosafety Level 3 and Level 4 laboratories, world-class expertise in the generation of biological aerosols for testing candidate vaccines and therapeutics, and fully accredited animal research facilities.

The outstanding national reputation of USAMRIID has been built over the years by numerous scientists and technical staff working to protect both military personnel and civilians from the threat of infectious diseases. We participate in support of emerging disease investigations, working alongside colleagues from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization. As a reference laboratory for the Department of Defense, we set the standard for identification of biological agents. Our customers in the Army and the Department of Defense know us as a "tech base" organization that has produced some 20 candidate medical products over the past decade. Still others recognize the impressive scientific credentials of our workforce, which represents some of the top infectious disease and biological defense experts in the Nation—indeed, in the world.

Julie C said...

No one is saying that only blacks from West Africa shouldn't come here - no one who has been in the hot zone should be allowed back in without a significant quarantine time.

That's not racism, that's common sense.

The way the virus has been contained in the past has been through quarantine - small villages have been quarantined and the virus has been contained. This current outbreak has worsened because people have been allowed to travel and because the outbreak occurred in a more populated area with more travel-prone citizens.

Yeah, they were spreading this chart with the Ro number around earlier to show that this is not as bad as HIV/measles/flu etc... but anything over 1 means the disease continues to spread. At the time, it was 1.5/2.0.

Panic isn't the problem here. Lack of panic, and incredible hubris, led to the idea that it wouldn't come here and then that it wouldn't spread here. That has been proven wrong.

We need serious people who will tell the truth, rather than happy fluffy lies. Then maybe we can stamp this out before it continues to spread (although it may be too late for those already infected).

Bullshit. First, "common sense" for whites should always include the fact history is smiling on you - and reminding the rest of us of your racism - so you should check yourselves before you wreck yourselves because what you take for reasonable thinking comes from an ugly place the rest of us have too much experience with to let slide.

White America's racism towards Africa is a reality and no amount of pooh-poohing, by whites, will make us forget it. THAT's not racism but common sense - if you're us. Now, to the issue:

Folks, we just went through the AIDS crisis - did you learn nothing? "It's time to panic"? Really? I saw panic kill a lot of people unnecessarily, then, and that's the best you can do now? It's a fucking virus. And you want to trap uninfected people with it by restricting flights. Pure evil insanity, with it's cultural roots in slavery's obvious lack of interest in anyone else's humanity - much less saving your own.

Supposedly the second nurse who has ebola flew right after deaing with the patient. SHe should have been banned from flying until it was determined that she wasn't a carrier.
So, if we're ok with banning flying out by people who may be exposed, so to should we not have a cow when we propose banning flights into the country from regions that carry a completely deadly virus that can quickly kill thousands.

anyone who handles an ebola patient HERE in the US should not be able to travel until they've been cleared. Meaning, it's ok to quarantine them (in my view) that would be true whtehre the nurse/doctor was black, white or Asian.
So if we block traffic out, there should be even less of a problem blocking traffic IN.
Only complete retards are making this a racial thing. If ebola had an outbreak in Englannd I would say block flights from England until they sort out the mess.

It's funny how, when we get past the political correct charges the common sense suddenly becomes common sense. So, someone who has been exposed to ebola should not be flying. It's not a good idea. HMmmmm. where have a been hearing that before?

I'm sure you would have been waving the soldiers on in WWI who spread the 1918 flu around, which killed millions.

Spreading a virus around does not help control it or save lives. It creates more vectors for the disease, more infected, more dead. Witness what is happening in West Africa right now. If they could have stopped it early, if people weren't so mobile it might have died out at a few hundred cases. Instead it's killed thousands and not yet stopped.

Maybe if the WHO had panicked a few months ago, instead of handwaving it, there would be fewer dead.

NO, I want to contain a virus so that MORE people don't get it than already have it. If you don't restrict flights then people with ebola can travel on those flights and infect people without ebola who will be exposed to them on those flights. And then we have to monitor everyone one of those people and all the people they may be in contact to see if they have a the virus, and if so quarantine them.
I could even see allowing a flight where we knew the person had ebola was on it, if we could set up the plane ahead of time to be a quarantine zone in and of itself. But letting someone with ebola on a commercial flight? THat's ridiculous. There should be exactly ZERO instances of ebola in America, since as soon as we found out about it we should have immediately blocked flights until the outbreak was contained.

Far better to introduce a highly infections (whatever their BS about it) incurable disease into our country than to appear racist.

Nations prosper and decline according to how well their values operate within the real world of human nature, disease, and available natural resources.

Brando said...

Containing it needed to be the first and most important measure. If the disease's spread is reduced to a small number of people on whom you can concentrate treatments, you not only have a chance to nip it in the bud, but you prevent a lot of death, expense, and panic.

Right now, due to the Ebola spread there's a number of hospitals in Africa where people are dying of treatable diseases because so many resources are being used to fight Ebola instead. Those indirect deaths could have been prevented if quick action was taken at the source.

Now, with each new confirmed case in the U.S., it's becoming clear we don't have this contained. This is ugly, and getting uglier.

So if we treat a virus like a virus we contain it. Therefore we block people who have it from getting in and spreading it. If we have people here who have it, we contain THEM so they can't get out and spread the virus.
If wer're expressing panic it's because the govt seems to not be doing those things.
Just the other day the nurse who treated Duncan came down with ebola and prior to that travelled. Now the CDC is saying she shouldn't have travelled because she was exposed. WEL, YEAH! What the hell have we been saying about blocking travel when people have been exposed. The lesson isnt' lost on them when we have someone exposed travelling out, but because they don't want to offend anyones sensibilities common sensegoes out the window when it comes to people coming into this country who may be bringing ebola with them.

Julie C said...

When a disease affects a small number of people in a far off place, there isn't a whole lot of attention paid.

Suddenly, it starts affecting a whole bunch of people and spreads to other places and our interest increases. Racist? How about human nature.

People who have obscure illnesses or genetic disorders can rightly complain that no one pays attention to their particular disease. But that isn't racism. The research money goes where the potential profits are. Or, in the case of the CDC, the research money goes to finding out why lesbians are fat.

This begs a couple questions:

1. If we are allowing flights from the effected area in Africa, why tell Americans who have come in contact with an ebola patient being told not to travel?

2. If getting on a plane to cleveland if you were around ebola, and supposedly "asymptomatic", is such a cause for concern, why is there no concern about stopping flights from Africa where medical conditions are worse than here in the US?

"If wer're expressing panic it's because the govt seems to not be doing those things."

Where to begin? So we WERE supposed to pretend you've been pretty unbiasedly-aware of this race hustler's actions, on any topic that features black "thugs" practically, as you've non-racially opposed each and every one of them for some all-of-a-sudden cockamamy (white) "principle" you abandon as soon as you get politically desperate - but, now, I'm supposed to see you as giving me an accurate assessment based on - this is brilliant - how ALARMED you are?

And then what the government "seems" is pretty weak evidence for panic, ain't it? Like going on your feelings (I thought we Republicans didn't do that?)? Why don't you guys wave some sage around while you're at it because, like the guilt you think blacks want from you (no matter how many times we tell you to shove it) it's worth just about as much good?

Face it - as long as you never consider YOU'RE WRONG AND FIGHT THE FACTS - you are not the ones to be listened to. Panicked or not. But especially not. Why? Let me count some equally-stupid ways:

1. You hate Obama. You say it every day. Nobody forgets that for your convenience. 'Nuff said.

2. Your "logic" is one of continued brutality and your lack of concern, still, is right out of slavery, the KKK, Nazi Germany and Stalin's Russia. You really don't seem to understand - with you and I receiving the same ethical and educational background - that's what you make yourself look like, using OUR moral standard. You even insist on it. How is anyone going to trust you?

3. There's a racist 400 year history with Africa to contend with. It's so one-sided and brutal I need not say more.

4. You can't even grasp that, OBVIOUSLY, making blacks play taxes for over a century for facilities we couldn't use is reparational - you will even stand in the way of it while OPENLY talking about the horrors of government intrusion in YOUR lives - but I'm supposed to think you'll treat Africans fairly with our history?

You're self-panicking fools,...

Birkel said...

I cannot imagine this strain of Ebola doing anything less than infecting people in every major country of the world. Between 50 and 75% of those people will die. Many people will die from other causes that might have been prevented had resouces been available. The people who die will be of all races and all socio-economic levels but the rich are likely to have better overall odds than the poor.

Our efforts should be focused on prevention. I am going to focus on getting some supplies ready just in case. If they are not needed then I will deplete my stock of supplies slowly as needed. It's an investment.

After all, my people have seen diseases from other continents before. At least those long since dead people didn't understand virology. What is the excuse these days?

We will from this moment forward ensure that no other individual who is being monitored for exposure undergoes travel in any way other than controlled movement.”

"Do you really think that this is not intended sarcastically?"

Considering the evolution of this dialogue sprung from the racists here - chasing me away as I begged them to stop, except I returned, fully-charged to return fire - no, I don't think the so-called "pushback" is sarcastic but some of you white Americans, complacently allowing racists to sully your collective name, in defense of an admirable but wrong-headed "colorblind" approach to race in our country.

"Have you been reading Crack's rants on "white people" everything Crack says is through the lens of how he defines "white racism.""

Bullshit. I rant on white supremacy. Part of that was recognizing how whites here spoke of "blacks" - and then making whites "whites". And guess what? Whites see RACISM when you do that to them - said with no recognition of what "irony" means what-so-ever.

That's been part of the attraction of dealing with "whites" here - watching how long they can be clueless to their own behavior.

"Everything."

You really can't grasp what "white supremacy" means, can you?

"This is just a parody of how Crack seems to think whites view blacks."

The Vagina as Fascist State has no interest in seeing Ebola stopped in the United States, at least while it is primarily located in states such as Texas: it will only be treated seriously when it is a threat to the Northeastern political centers. The idea of the fly-over people being eradicated by disease is feature, not a bug (as it were). If there are no 'fly-over people' there is no longer a need for countering with leftist minority votes, so those communities will be set adrift, also.

Dallas will be forced to accept flights from Liberia, but Washington DC and New York will refuse flights from Dallas. This relationship will be the same for St. Louis, Cinncinnati, etc etc.

Once large portions of the country have died and the disease has burnt itself out it will be easier to unfreeze the eggs and start anew, a country populated for and by The Vagina as Fascist State. Those of The Vagina as Fascist State who may have misgivings about this will be consoled that in the end letting the disease burn is the best thing that could be done to thwart global warming.

"Since many (most?) black travelers from Africa will be visiting with black Americans upon their arrival one would think that the Crack Emcee would be concerned."

I'm as concerned as a virus warrants. What I won't do is succumb to panic, and especially not when I can always see how Drudge is helping pull the strings of white opinion. The man's a menace if y'all are really going to buy into his bullshit. Notice to white people - go to my blog:

"But, alas, racism clouds his brain."

Poor stupid blacks, imaging a white racist history and condition that never existed, even as Jon Stewart reminds them that blacks have to deal with some kind of white shit "within the last two hours" they don't catch.

We're just all crazy, I guess.

Whites saying that shows their natural racist tendency toward dissing us has stopped.

"Two of the three people who have or were killed by Evola were black."

What is hilarious is watching the three or four guys fight about who they say I am. One thinks I'm Inga, another says I am Garage, one creep calls me Penguin, and there was a Frank thrown in there a while back ago.

Hilarious, but weird. How paranoid does one have to be in order to live like that?

President-Mom-Jeans,

"If it makes you feel any better Crack, I make fun of the white homeless people begging for money ranting on the side of the street too."

I heard a rich white guy discussing beating up a homeless guy last night.

Put the two of you together and what do we get?

A much-less-than-flattering picture of violent evil white people,...

Airplane stocks were flying high. Not any more. Who wants to fly next to a seatmate with Ebola? (I still hope this whole thing is done in early January when I have to fly for work...I don't see a reason to doubt that quite yet, but I'm realistic). How much can Ebola affect the US Economy? I wonder.

The nurse who treated Duncan who has come down with ebola went flying with a slight fever after treating Duncan. THe plane then flew five more times before the airline finally took it out of commission (and hopefully set fire to it).
How many people were on the each flight? say 50 a flight (low end figure but its easier to work with) that would be at least 250 people exposed who will now have to be monitored. Where did the plane travel? It could have gone to multiple states. Do the people on the plane even know that they may be susceptible? How many people are they passing in their every day life (like going to to store, out to dinner etc) before being told that they may be susceptible. Then how many of THOSE people she came into contact with now may be carrying the disease and spreading it.
Once you get it on a plane it incrases the problems exponentially. And they STILL refuse to put in flight bans.

Screw the HHS Asst Sec in charge of Disaster response. Screw the CDC boss who made his name fighting trans-aft.

Trans-aft? Yeah, twertk that french-fry-induced oversized aft!
