    Obama’s Border Policy Fueled Epidemic, Evidence Shows

    Obama’s Border Policy Fueled Epidemic, Evidence Shows

    Neil Munro
    White House Correspondent


    The deadly EV-D68 enterovirus epidemic, which struck thousands of kids this fall, was likely propelled through America by President Barack Obama’s decision to allow tens of thousands of Central Americans across the Texas border, according to a growing body of genetic and statistical evidence.
    The evidence includes admissions from top health officials that the epidemic included multiple strains of the virus, and that it appeared simultaneously in multiple independent locations.
    The question can be settled if federal researchers study the genetic fingerprint of the EV-D68 viruses that first hit kids in Colorado, Missouri and Illinois to see if they are close relatives to the EV-D68 viruses found in Central America.
    Jayden Broadway, 9, was diagnosed with EV-D68 in early October (http://www.cbsnews.com/videos/entero...ss-the-nation/)

    Officials ”have to do the genetic analysis” to disprove or prove the link, Nora Chapman, an enterovirus scientist at the University of Nebraska, told The Daily Caller.
    But there’s already more than enough statistical evidence for American citizens to demand that scientists test the viruses to see if Obama’s progressive border priorities spread the dangerous contagion throughout the country during 2014.
    So far, that virus has been found in nine people — including at least three American kids — who died from illness. It has apparently inflicted unprecedented polio-like paralysis in roughly 50 kids, and it has put hundreds of young American kids into hospital emergency wards and intensive care units throughout more than 40 states. Most of the dead have not been publicly identified.


    A series of government researchers, health experts and academics refused to comment, or else urged self-censorship, when they were pressed by TheDC for statistical and scientific data that would exonerate Obama and his deputies.
    “I would just steer away from that— it is not helpful, so why bring it up,” said Lone Simonsen, a professor at George Washington University’s Department of Global Health and the research director of the university’s Global Epidemiology Program. “A better angle [is] ‘We’re just learning what this outbreak is all about,’” she told TheDC.
    Columbia University researcher Rafal Tokarz, one of the nation’s top experts on the EV-D68 virus, declined to comment to TheDC about the impact of Obama’s border policies. “I cannot comment… and at this time it would not be appropriate for me to do so… I would really rather not comment,” he said in email conversations.

    The issue is dangerous for scientists because it could spike existing public opposition to the unpopular effort by Obama, Democrats and business-backed Republicans to increase the migration of foreign nationals — including many foreign scientists — into the United States. That inflow is a top priority for the Democratic leaders, who have the power to make life difficult for grant-dependent American scientists who discover politically damaging information.

    That sensitivity showed up Oct. 16, when a top staffer for Rep. Luis Gutierrez, a champion of increased immigration from Latin America, denounced the evidence for an Obama-disease link: “Rush [Limbaugh], don’t let facts dissuade you! Enterovirus outbreak likely not coming from immigrants,” Guttierez communications director Douglas Rivlin tweeted, while linking to an article that tried to stigmatize investigations into any possible link.

    On Oct. 29, The New York Times produced a vague article about EV-D68′s possible role in the paralysis cases, headlined ”Doctors Mystified by Paralysis in Dozens of Children.” The article quoted Mark Pallansch, who heads the viral diseases unit at the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, saying “we don’t have a single clear hypothesis that’s the leading one at this point.” He also said that American kids have less than a one-in-a-million chance of being paralyzed. The Times ignored the possible link to Obama’s border policy.

    But public trust in government would nudge upward if there is strong scientific evidence against the widespread concern that Obama recklessly loosed the EV-D68 epidemic. The Snopes.com site tried to debunk the idea, but could only reject it as “problematic.”
    The EV-D68 controversy is a weaker version of the Ebola fight, where Obama has opposed stringent federal and state barriers to the arrival of foreign travelers who may be carrying Ebola. The EV-D68 virus is far, far less dangerous than Ebola, but it also may be harder to counter because it has now spread throughout the United States.
    There is no vaccine for EV-D68, so health experts expect more victims.

    How did Ebola come into play during the midterms? Did it change votes? What do you think!?

    I believe both EV-D68 enterovirus epidemic and Ebola played a part in the Democrats massive losses

    Video at the page link:

    For First Time Ever, People Infected With Ebola Will Be In The U.S.
    For the first time ever, people infected with the deadly Ebola virus will be inside the borders of the United States. According to news reports, two Americans infected with the virus are being evacuated back home from Africa to the United States. Those infected include Kent Brantly, a doctor from Texas, and Nancy Writebol, a missionary, who became sick while in Liberia. CNN reported that, “With the return of Brantly and Writebol to the United States, it will be the first time that patients diagnosed with Ebola will be known to be in the country." Added Washington Post: “It would be the first time a patient infected with Ebola has been treated in the United States.” According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Emory University Hospital in Atlanta is expecting at least one patient. The hospital wing where the patient will go, set up with the help from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is designed for people with serious infectious diseases.

    President Barack Obama lied to sell Obamacare, and lately he’s using double talk to sell Ebolacare, his risky response to the virus sweeping West Africa. Sadly, he’s turning the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, once a trusted agency, into a public relations arm of the White House lie machine.
    On October 23, the CDC website posted an explanation of the ways it might be possible to catch Ebola in addition to direct contact with an infected person. The website listed being sneezed or coughed on by an infected person or touching an object contaminated with the virus. The information is straight out of scientific journals. But it didn’t jibe with Obama’s repeated claim that “you cannot get it from just riding on a plane or bus.” So the CDC took it down a few days later and refused to say why.
    Expect such shenanigans to backfire with voters. Likely voters rate health care second only to the economy in importance to them, according to an Associated Press poll on October 21. They also rate the government’s handling of Ebola as more important than immigration and twice as important as same-sex marriage. AP polling also shows that only a meager 35 percent of likely voters feel confident they’re getting a straight story on Ebola.
    No wonder. The public knows that in Obama’s administration, lying has gone viral. That’s the real epidemic threatening the nation.
    As for Ebola, the risk of getting it in the U.S. at this time is extremely low unless you work in a hospital treating an Ebola patient. Extremely low but not impossible. Here is what we know:
    If an infected person coughs or sneezes, sending droplets several feet, and they land in your eye, nose or mouth, or possibly on an opening in your skin, you could get Ebola. That’s the information the CDC posted.
    You might also get it sharing finger food from a common plate with someone infected, according to research in The Journal of Infectious Diseases.
    What about touching a subway pole or bowling ball? Unlike staph and other bacteria, which can last for weeks on dry surfaces, viruses generally last only a few hours, at most a day or two. There is no definite research showing that people have caught Ebola that way. A 2007 study in The Journal of Infectious Diseases shows Ebola survives much longer if it is in blood — for example, on a bloody bandage, tissue or tampon. The CDC included this information in its posting, too, only seven years after it was originally published.
    Then there’s the risk of using a toilet right after an Ebola-infected person has used it and flushed. Flushing sends droplets of water from the toilet bowl up into the air. Some common hospital infections are spread that way. Investigators from the University of Illinois School of Public Health see the possibility of Ebola spreading that way, too: “Regarding diarrhea … flushing emits a pathogen-laden aerosol that disperses into the air.” Think airport bathroom.
    The fact is, scientists don’t know all of the ways Ebola can spread. The roughly 20 previous known outbreaks occurred in rural African villages, so research is scant. When the president says it can only be spread through direct contact, and CDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden parrots that, you may not be getting the whole story.
    During an October 29 speech to the nation, Obama adopted a schoolmarm attitude, chastising those who disagree with him about quarantining health care workers for “losing their heads” and being driven by fear, not science. That’s untrue.
    What we don’t know about Ebola would humble any scientist, but not the Obama administration. The exception is the Defense Department, which solicited research proposals on October 24 to get more information on how Ebola spreads.
    Last week, the Associated Press hired several scientists to come up with estimates on how many cases of Ebola we’re likely to see in the U.S. The answers varied so widely, it’s clear no one knows. The AP also surveyed hospitals across the U.S. and found almost none ready to handle Ebola. This is falling on deaf ears at the White House. But Tuesday’s election results may deliver a dose of the humility that is needed.

    If the cases of enterovirus tend to cluster where those "unaccompanied minors" were dumped, we'd have our answer.
