Drudge knows how to attract viewers. He know what stories are read. He then uses related stories on the top left of his site. Here is October 4’s list.
The government keeps issuing assurances: there is no threat. Its problem is obvious: people know that officials lie. The more likely that bad news will create panic, the more certain the public is that the officials are lying, spinning, or otherwise deceiving. “When the going gets tough, the flacks get spinning.”
We can be sure of two things. First, Ebola victims will fly into the USA. Second, this will be officially dismissed as no threat. Case by case, we will be assured: “No problem!”
The Web will not allow these stories to be suppressed. There will be all kinds of assessments of the facts, but the facts will get out.
At some point, without warning, the public may decide to begin making personal preparations. Malcolm Gladwell’s book, Tipping Point, describes what could happen. There is no way to know when this will happen, but the government’s bureaucrats will not be able to reverse it if it does happen. Panic will spread. They will say, “remain calm,” and this recommendation will fan the fires of fear. “They’re lying again! It’s worse than we thought!”
It is a problem over there. But over there will never be officially allowed to come over here. There is an emergency in West Africa, we are assured. But Ebola cannot become a threat here — by definition. We’re here. They’re there. It’s their problem.
The government is sending in U.S. troops to deal with the problem. This is panic mode. This is sending troops into harm’s way. This is justified in the name of humanitarianism. Nonsense. It’s an emergency response to the fear of a worldwide pandemic. But by definition, it will not be allowed to be identified as a worldwide pandemic. Over there, yes; over here, no. By definition.
Government officials lie. They are paid to lie. We know this. They know this. The world’s officials are all Baghdad Bob to one degree or another. The game goes on. But with Ebola, it’s no game.
If there were HazMat suit futures, I would be long.
Baghdad BOB is alive and well…and has 'infected' Washington, DC and the Ministry of Truth as well. This isn't the first time. As the Russian thundered toward Berlin from the east, and Patton closed in from the west, Goebbels was busily announcing his latest winning propaganda slogan: "We MUST win…therefore we shall." That has the same ring of megalo-maniacal delusion as did OBOZO as he ran for office. "We are the people we have been waiting for."
This Way lies Madness!
….Baghdad Bob…I like that phraseology… Have U taken time to disect the MAJOR probls of the world, their location? Practically ALL – in underdeveloped Mid East Countries, all headed by unscrupulous "leaders" who have milked America to the limit, and this Administration continues fulleling billions $$ to hem as if we OWED them?
Me-thinks, its anothr good time to "apologize to the World for America's """arrogance""" not to mention the many times we've sent ships of medical supplies, Doctors, food,wheat, & even armament when needed"….Yeah, gotta shame them Americans…(until we are worked-down to 3rd world level insurrectionists) I believe their hatred for America stems from the fact their poppy-field mentality prevents them from logical thinking.
And, America was "looked-up to" before these last horrendous 6 yrs. fordfool
With the America hating communist camel turd in the White House and the Senate infested with communist self serving crooks, and the network "news" media controlled by this filth, we know the truth is not on the table about anything!
there are lies, damn lies, statistics and then the obama regime. they have taken lying to a new high level for government, not achieved since the 60s when we all realized the government lied thru it's ass. how can you tell if the government is lying? their representative's lips are moving. obama tells us constantly that the economy is doing just fine. and health care costs less. omg. he also told me i could keep my doctor. period. now with ebola i get to try out my over paid premiums of obamacare to see if i dont have to die? give me a break. we need a parlimentry system as in europe, so we can call for an election. this crap has got to go
Why is it that just before an election, any election, the unemployment numbers get better, gas prices drop even though the Middle East is in turmoil, consumer confidence should be on the rise. I'm not claiming to be an economist, and I hate to sound like a tinfoil-hat guy, but every single time?
The unemployment numbers are completly made up BS, by tailoring the data you use you can make the numbers say anything you want. Include the millions that have simply dropped out of the workforce and the numbers are as bad or worse than the Great Depression, just keep borrowing to pay people not to work and things will look good right up to the point you can't borrow anymore, then everything collapses. Nothing this corrupt goes on forever people, get ready an earth shattering correction is coming.
On the other hand maybe they are deliberately allowing EBOLA to enter the country, hoping it will wipe enough of us out to solve their problems of the great unwashed masses!
It should be a felony with a punishment of 20 years in prison for an elected, appointed, hired or the representve of any government official, at any level to lie to or deliberately miss lead the public at any time. It is NEVER acceptable for the employees to lie to the employer.
Obama is more dangerous than ISIL because he let them get ahead by taking our troops out of Iraq! He is so stupid when it comes to foreign affairs & should be driven out of office before we are burning up with an Iran nueclear weapon! Obama is responsible for all the deaths by ISIL! All the women, children,& soldiers in all the countries they've taken over! The 3 teenage boys who were killed by hamas are on his head too. They would have never killed them when George W. Bush was president!!! The terrorists hated Bush , but they respected him because they knew he would do what he said! The same way in which Bill Clinton caused 9/11 by ignoring calls to take out Bin Laden, Obama caused ISIL mess by not going after Syria when he drew a red line! They know Obama won't do anything to them. Egypt is obamas fault too. He wanted Morsi in there because Obama backs the muslim brotherhood(doncha know), As soon as Morsi go into office he started to trash Israel! The Egyptian people didn't like that & their army is of the people, so the army got rid of Morsi & the muslim brotherhood! Obama was soooo pissed, I loved it! When God comes to judge the sheep & goat nations,who are for or against Israel, Egypt will be judged as a good nation in Gods eyes! Bless them! Of course,obama cut all money from them,but I heard that the UAR is giving the Egyptian army lots more money than Obama did! The blood of innocents are on obamas hands, the blood of terrorists are on Bushes hands!!!!
Obama doesn't care. If plot is to destroy the US, turn it a third world country and declare himself as forever ruler. He is only waiting to declare martial law. I thought Ferguson and racial riots might have done it. Perhaps it will be the border, illegal immigrants or even ebola. Don't forget one of the Islam tenets is to lie to non muslims. God help
It's just another "don't waste a crisis" tactic to deflect our attention from the madhouse in the middle east. Get the Ebola panic going full blast, November is coming and the Dems have to hide all the ugly stuff of the past six years. One doctor wrote in a blog that the best thing people can do with Ebola and flu season coming, is to up their Vitamin C to three grams (3,000 mg) a day and Vitamin D to 1,000 units a day to keep your immune system in top shape. The places in Africa where Ebola is running wild don't have the sanitation procedures we have and they don't have strong immune systems to fight off an exposure to the disease.
Everyone knows Demonrats lie, `cept those that vote them in time and time again.
The problem with our government is trust, or the lack of it. It has lied and been caught on Affordable Care, NSA spying, IRS targeting, and the Benghazi attack, among others. Now we can no longer trust with it says and what it is doing.
Larry, I think you hit the nail on the head! The Obama Admin IS deliberately importing Ebola (& other diseases through the Southern border) in order to achieve the chaos needed for Martial Law. The have all those FEMA camps, billions of bullets & hundreds of thousands of those coffins that they just can't wait to use!
I would like the Obama clan to be put in a room with Ebola patients
Everything you are seeing on the Ebola issue here in USSA and all the events in the ME are directly caused by the Obama regime ? Think about that fact , because it is absolutely true . Their policies and bad decisions created ISIS/ISIL. and Ponder this ? Obamacare was passed without anybody reading it fully and understanding it. That destroyed our current supposed health care system and then comes along EBOLA !
Everything this pres has done has harmed this country and been nothing but an attempt to undermine it. The entire regime should be arrested by the military and prosecuted by congress immediately for treason and dereliction. All explained in detail and much more at my website. I urge everyone to get some coconut charcoal immediately before it is all gone !
I think it is the other way around. The obvious lackadaisical careless response from the medical community is actually DOING isolation procedures tells me they don't seriously believe there is a true danger. The danger is blown out of proportion and is probably not significant. Ebola may be similar to a common cold or influenza that affects mainly compromised immune systems.
WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE. THIS NOT A LITTLE VIRUS THAT CAN BE CONTAINED. ITS HERE IN THE USA AS I WRITE. IF THEY DON'T CONTAIN IT IT WILL GO AIRBORN. IF YOU ON AN AIRPLANE AND THIS GOES AIRBORN YOU WILL GET IT. EVERY AIRCRAFT THAT COMES FROM THERE SHOULD HAVE THERE CABIN FILTERS CHANGED. WHEREING FULL BODY PROTECTION. NEVER GET ON A PLANE IF YOUR SICK. YOU'LL GET WORSE, OR SOME OTHER VIRUS.
I FOUND OUT IN VIETNAM WE WHERE FIGHTING TO PROTECT THE OPIUM FIELDS IN THE SOUTH FROM THE NORTH VIET KONG. THEY WHERE INVOLVED WITH THE RUSSIAN KGB ON SELLING HERION AND OPIUM. SO WE WHERE PROTECTING THOSE FIELDS FROM CHARLIE. NOT FIGHTING FOR AMERICAS FREEDOM.
FINALLY SOMEONE HAS SEEN THE LIGHT. IF A CASE IN CALIFORNIA COMES UP, I'M STAYING HOME. IF I NEED FOOD, OR HAVE TO GO TO THE DOCTOR, OR RUN AN ERRAN, IT'S HAND SANITIZER AND A DUST MASK. ANYONE COUGHS ON ME I KILL EM.
just think. what better way to justify roadblocks and quarantines than a pandemic? What better way to justify armed forces in the streets telling you what to do?
and if they can make money off it in the meantime (spread the plague, then sell vaccines) , all the better (for them)
What is the address for your website?
Comrade, /what are you saying????
Perhaps you should change your "title" to COMEDIAN! IF you are not pfishing or pranking, look up EBOLA on wiki. You'll probably learn some things you don't know. And, if you're serious, learn to spell.
The wider ebola spreads in Africa, the more certain it is to spread around the world. The more it spreads around the world, the more guaranteed it is to arrive here 'in the wild' eventually. So who is monitoring ebola reporting for all the nations? I hope it's not those liars in the UN….
Been there done that and I am sure that is why good old LBJ called all the shots, someone told him where the profits were coming from and what had to be protected.
The only difference now is we are running guns, money, and stuff to our enemies today. Over time nothing changes and it is what it is.
Probably the reason we are sending 3 – 4K troops there and when they come back will help spread it around. Has anyone else wondered about the two they cured and the fellow in TX dying, can it be they can select who lives and dies. Sure sounds like death panel to me…………. 😉
