Open Border, Ebola & ISIS: A Perfect Storm For America?

Back in July I wrote an article about the potential for ‘biological warfare’ being waged against America by terrorist groups. Now, the “JV team” (ISIS, according to Obama) ISIS has Baghdad surrounded and it may fall in the coming days or weeks. In martial arts I learned respect, including respect for my opponents. Underestimating a threat is the undoing of many people, including famous military commanders. We have a president who has underestimated several critical issues, and now he has done the same thing yet again with Ebola.

Americans are all at risk when the administration fails to act timely and effectively. The current administration is plagued with incompetence combined with overconfidence (dangerous combination), and anyone who has been paying attention to the news is hearing that theme loud and clear, from every side of the media.

‘Capability’ regardless of how great, is useless without leadership, planning and timely execution. We have seen none of these qualities fielded by the current administration. In fact, if ISIS is the “JV team”, the Obama administration is the junior high school ‘JV’ team.

Ebola is now in America, contrary to what Obama told Americans a few weeks back. And what is possibly more frightening than the incompetence of Obama and his administration, including the head of the CDC, Dr.Thomas Frieden, is the fact that ISIS commanders have said in no uncertain words that they will send Jihadists who are infected with Ebola to America.

In years past, prior to the Obama open border policy, these Jihadists would have had a far more difficult time gaining access into the American homeland, however that is no-longer the case. In addition to illegal immigrants who are pouring into the U.S. over our southern border, a contingent of whom are known to be Jihadists, are the people who are flying commercial airliners right into America from countries in Africa where the Ebola virus is raging out of control. The number of cases is growing by 10,000 every two weeks according to the WHO.

At every step of the way, the CDC is seen as either holding-back information they have on Ebola, or in some cases, are just plain incompetent and don’t know what they are talking about. For instance, Dr. Frieden the head of the CDC told Americans just a week ago that the incubation period of the Ebola virus was about 21 days. Now we learn from the World Health Organization (WHO) that the incubation period is actually as long as 42 days!

Also not known by the CDC is that (according to the WHO) some of the infected don’t show signs of fever or other symptoms, yet may still be contagious. So these infected people could infect many others without any warning signs.

Now considering the recent promise by ISIS to send Jihadists infected with Ebola to America… it seems that a 42-day incubation period works to their advantage… a long fuse on a deadly ‘viral bomb’. An individual Jihadist has more than enough time to become infected, and while the deadly virus is incubating for many weeks, that individual could easily travel overseas and into America legally, or illegally. I say legally because Obama has seen fit to allow Americans who fought with ISIS to return to America and roam free, and who’s to say if they may be carrying something?

And once an infected Jihadist is in America, do you think that person will check into a hospital when the symptoms appear? Heck no! A Jihadist will make it a point to contaminate the most congested public places, sneezing and coughing, and with some thought, things much worse! The bottom line is that an infected Jihadist is as close to the perfect biological weapon as a terrorist group can get… with an intelligent delivery system. Just keep in mind that these are the same people who wrap themselves in explosives and blow themselves and others to pieces.

Many other countries, including France and Great Britain have closed their doors to flights from the infected African countries, while Obama has elected to keep allowing people to arrive across America daily! And during a time when the CDC can’t find its own backside with both hands! And it seems now that the best information on Ebola is coming from the WHO, and not the CDC, which has been coined as the ‘Center For Disease Confusion’ by some radio talk show hosts.

And now, to top off the lunacy from the top office, Obama is considering sending even more of our countrymen and women (National Guard and other soldiers) into the infected countries of Africa! This is just stupidity at its finest! When we look at the facts on the ground in Texas, where nurses working in a top hospital environment and who have training and hazmat suits are now infected with Ebola, any logical person would stop and re-think the situation. Sending a bunch of young men and women into a raging Ebola epidemic with less experience and training than the Texas nurses had is a disaster in the making of monumental proportions. And here again, with a 42-day incubation period, how do we handle asymptomatic soldiers returning home, who may be infected and inside that incubation period? Are we going to quarantine hundreds or thousands of our soldiers? Or just let them come back into society when we know that some will become contagious and infect dozens/hundreds of other people in their home towns?

Some readers may be asking the question as to why I am outlining these particular issues. There is a very logical rationale for outlining and detailing these issues: Too many American people are being caught-up in the false rhetoric (don’t worry, we have it under control’) because they want to believe and trust they will be ‘OK’. So it’s important that others are doing the calculus and digging into the daily contradictions and then outlining them, which hopefully stimulates others to do their homework.

Americans need to know what the real facts are, so they can themselves take the needed actions to protect themselves from what may be coming; a full-on Ebola Epidemic in America. Quite frankly, a death by beheading would be merciful compared to a death by Ebola, which we now learn from the WHO is about 70% fatal (the CDC was wrong on that point too).

Americans need to understand why they must rely on themselves for being prepared, and that is why it is important to focus on the failings of the current administration and its policies.

In the case of Ebola: An ounce of prevention (preparedness) is worth a pound of cure.

  1. Ebola has always been in our country. It was discovered in 1976, for crying out loud. Does anyone actually believe that since 1976 with global transportation that this is the first time someone came over from west Africa?

    What is new is the hype created by a niave media and bought into by an ignorant public devoid of any reason or decernment.

    How many have died thus far? A rediculously few inspite of all the chickens running around with their heads chopped off.

    Every 18 seconds someone commits suicide that is an epidemic for sure, but there is no money to be made on prevention, nor is there any ratings to be made talking about it.

    It must be 1999 here in America because all the hype sounds just like Y2K nonsense all over. The American people will die of shear stupidity long before Ebola catches up to it’s hype.

    1. Gary, get your head out of the sand. Ebola killed about 1700 people from 1976 until this latest outbreak (38 yrs). It killed 4555 plus people since March (7 month). WHO and the UN are saying this could be out of control within 2 months. Are they chickens running with their heads cut off?

      Something has changed since 1976.

    2. Talk about idiots and stupidity, you top the list.Answer one simple question: If Duncan had not been allowed to enter the U S would the two nurses be fighting for their lives right now. And do you think the millions that have been or are going to be spent are of no concern. I agree that there are a lot of stupid people in this country and to call this nonsense is a prime example of not being able to understand even the most elementary facts in this case.This has the potential of making the U S a third world country. And idiots like you are going to speed the process along.When you contact it because of the lack of concern or incompetence of our leaders,tell us how nonsensical it is.

      1. Wow, pretty harsh words gentlemen.

        I think Gary is only pointing out many of the same things I did in my article Am I also to be a target of your vitriol?

        Let’s keep a semblance of decorum, if only because our tone rarely comes across as intended through the internet.

        I agree with you that we should have banned travel to prevent it from ever coming here in the first place, but now that it is here, SO FAR we only have 1 death and 2 people infected. Those should never have happened, but they did and the results are not as horrific as we make the possibilities out to be in our minds.

        What needs to happen now is individual Americans assessing this threat and preparing for the worst while using reason to not let hysteria or anger consume and divide us further. Government has proven it is of little help and will often make the problem worse. Let’s not give them the excuse to step in further and “save us from ourselves” through Executive Order because we’re bickering and divided. We are all on the same side here.

        1. ISIS and Ebola have one thing in common. They are both creations of the US government. More controlled op and false flags to finish off America!
          Obama signed an executive order last summer giving himself the power to imprison those with respiratory conditions excepting the flu. The pentagram has formed an Ebola strike force to grab Americans off the streets and put them into quarantine.
          Don’t let Obama and the criminal US military destroy our country!

        2. You are spot on Marine. This is the thing that is killing us. Unless you are a “Troll” trying to pick a fight, you are on this sight just like the rest of us. Trying to pick up some good insight or new tips to help us safeguard our families and loved ones from any impending situation. When we pounce on each other because someone has a different view that we do, it makes us sound like a bunch of “Lib-tards” screaming PC diversity as long as you see it “MY” way. Come on everyone, lets not let all that PC crap sneak onto Pat’s most excellent web sight, and make this just another place to argue. We all have better and more important things to worry about, and to get ready for. Lets stay with what is most important to us, Being Prepared and ready.
          Keep up the good fight!
