The Ebola mess provides the latest sign of many that this misadministration is dying right before our eyes. Like a dead Ebola victim, however, the body still presents serious dangers.
Glad to see others catching up with the ol' Diplomad on Obama and ebola (here and here, for example) and on the whole bureaucratic, corrupt, politicized government health industry and lobby.
I see lots of commentators finally realizing--Shock!--that the CDC is not full of dedicated doctors in white lab coats working for humanity. Most are politicized bureaucrats who respond to the dictates of their masters in Washington and to popular fads, e.g., global warming, and are perpetually seeking more money.
I have made the point before that liberalism/progressivism kills,
"Liberals love humanity and hate people." Oh, and by the way, liberals will get you killed. Yes, killed. Modern liberalism kills people, and does so by the millions, all in the name of humanity, of course. It should have a warning label that asks you not to practice liberalism at home, or something along the lines of "I am a trained professional, do not attempt liberalism on your own."The current ebola fiasco is a natural outgrowth from the ideology of progressivism and the beliefs of the one-worlders now in control in the White House and the Senate.
The Obamistas hate borders, hate the idea of national defense and national interests, and, let's face it, hate America and the West. They have done everything possible to undermine the West in its struggle with jihadism; they have done everything possible to undermine our ability to defend our borders from a tsunami of people seeking free stuff; and they now have great difficulty defending us from a disease from West Africa. The only thing we know for sure about ebola is that it comes from West Africa--everything else is open for debate. The one thing the government could do right away is a ban on flights, ships, and people from West Africa. That, however, would lead to politically awkward questions about why we can't also defend our southern border from massive illegal immigration; do something about jihadis coming to our shores; and do something about our dysfunctional immigration "system" that serves no purpose except to funnel into America new and poor wards of the state and voters for the Democratic party.
In keeping with the murderous destructiveness of progressivism we now have the ebola "Czar," Ronald Klain.
He is a joke; a second-rate political hack known as the "brains" behind Joe Biden (PLEASE INSERT MERCILESS COMMENTS HERE). He will report to two bosses: the always truthful and oh-so politically tuned-in National Security Advisor Susan "Blame it on a video!" Rice and the hapless political hack Secretary of Health and Human Services, Sylvia Burwell. If you are going to appoint an ebola Czar--and this administration has nearly forty Czars on various topics--you don't need a doctor, but you do need somebody who knows how to knock heads, make tough decisions, and transmit a sense of authority, responsibility, urgency, and competence. Can and will Klain do that? No. Lieutenant General Leslie Groves, the man who headed up the incredible Manhattan Project, was not a nuclear physicist, but he certainly knew how to get things done. Klain is no Groves.
Remember: Progressive fantasies will kill you.
Eric Holder and his fantasies about getting rid of the second amendment ended up killing hundreds of Mexicans and two US federal agents with "Fast and Furious." Obama and Clinton with their fantasies about the the Middle East and the nature of Islam killed thousands of people in Libya, Egypt, Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan, and have put the West at risk. You can come up with dozens more examples of how deadly progressivism is and always has been. Proceed doing so.
