Rep. Cory Gardner (R-TX) grilled the Obama officials today at the House subcommittee hearing on Ebola in the US.
Arutz Sheva, "First US Ebola Patient Dies":
Thomas Eric Duncan traveled from Liberia to Texas before testing positive for Ebola. The first Ebola case diagnosed in the U.S. has raised many questions and concerns, which CNN has been responding to on social media using the hashtag #EbolaQandA.
What kills the virus?
Health care workers — and CNN's reporters — in West Africa rely on bleach. But the CDC says any hospital disinfectant will work on a nonporous surface.
Would any bodily fluids this patient flushed contaminate the water system?
The virus wouldn't survive long in water, Jean-Paul Gonzalez at Metabiota, a company that tracks global infectious diseases, told NPR. The virus depends heavily, he said, on its host — either a human or animal — to stay active.
Could the virus become airborne?
It's possible Ebola could eventually be transmitted through the air. Experts say the chances are relatively small that Ebola will make that jump. But every time a new person gets Ebola, the virus gets another chance to develop new capabilities. Ebola is an RNA virus, which means every time it copies itself, it makes one or two mutations.
Will Duncan receive an experimental drug?
Maybe. Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said Tuesday the Dallas hospital was discussing all treatment options with the patient and his family. There is no approved drug or vaccine for Ebola.
The experimental drug given to Dr. Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebol, the first Ebola patients flown to the United States, is called ZMapp. The company that produces ZMapp has said it is out of doses, though it is working to create more.
Dr. Rick Sacra, the American doctor treated for Ebola in Nebraska, was given another experimental drug called TKM-Ebola. There are reportedly still doses of this drug available.
Are the people who were on his flights at risk?
No. The Ebola virus spreads only when someone is exhibiting symptoms. This patient arrived in the United States on September 20, according to the CDC, and didn't get sick until several days later. So he wasn't contagious on the flight.
He was put in isolation at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital on September 28 and will not be released until he is free of the virus.
But how can they be sure he wasn't sick earlier?
That's a fair question. They can't be 100% sure. But the first sign of Ebola is generally a high fever. And everyone leaving Liberia has their temperature checked before they're allowed to board a plane.
Plus, health experts have said that anyone who is sick enough to be contagious probably doesn't feel well enough to travel in the first place.
U.S. hospitals aren't ready for an Ebola outbreak, according to nurses who staged a "die-in" Wednesday http://ht.ly/CdW0z ;
There's a study that says it can live on hard surfaces up to six days...In one study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Ebola virus lived on a surface in a perfectly controlled environment for up to six days. http://ht.ly/CdT5z ;
Microbiologist &trauma Dr protests @CDCgov at airport,says:“The CDC is lying” http://ht.ly/CdOB7 ;
bodily fluids and items a patient has come into contact with must be sterilized or incinerated before being disposed http://ht.ly/CdQfc ;
though some wondered how a pregnant woman who stayed at home could have contracted Ebola http://ht.ly/CdYQY
The aunt of the pregnant victim died on Wednesday after collapsing in her house next door to the Williams home. http://ht.ly/CdYOR
9yro Mercy Kennedy sobbed mourning news of her mother's death,not a person wld touch the little girl to comfort her. http://ht.ly/CdYGJ
all those who fell ill after helping the pregnant patient who infected Thomas Duncan are dead,many sick in hometown http://ht.ly/CdYwb

Evidence exposing who put ISIS in power, and how it was done. Sources and full transcript: http://scgnews.com/the-covert-origins-of-isis ;
The Islamic militant group ISIS, formerly known as Al-Qaeda in Iraq, and recently rebranded as the so called Islamic State, is the stuff of nightmares. They are ruthless, fanatical, killers, on a mission, and that mission is to wipe out anyone and everyone, from any religion or belief system and to impose Shari'ah law. The mass executions, beheadings and even crucifixions that they are committing as they work towards this goal are flaunted like badges of pride, video taped and uploaded for the whole world to see. This is the new face of evil.
Would it interest you to know who helped these psychopaths rise to power? Would it interest you to know who armed them, funded them and trained them? Would it interest you to know why?
This story makes more sense if we start in the middle, so we'll begin with the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.
The Libyan revolution was Obama's first major foreign intervention. It was portrayed as an extension of the Arab Spring, and NATO involvement was framed in humanitarian terms.
The fact that the CIA was actively working to help the Libyan rebels topple Gaddafi was no secret, nor were the airstrikes that Obama ordered against the Libyan government.However, little was said about the identity or the ideological leanings of these Libyan rebels. Not surprising, considering the fact that the leader of the Libyan rebels later admitted that his fighters included Al-Qaeda linked jihadists who fought against allied troops in Iraq.
These jihadist militants from Iraq were part of what national security analysts commonly referred to as Al-Qaeda in Iraq. Remember Al-Qaeda in Iraq was ISIS before it was rebranded.
With the assistance of U.S. and NATO intelligence and air support, the Libyan rebels captured Gaddafi and summarily executed him in the street, all the while enthusiastically chanting "Allah Akbar". For many of those who had bought the official line about how these rebels were freedom fighters aiming to establish a liberal democracy in Libya, this was the beginning of the end of their illusions.
See more at the link above....including videos and articles linked to related stories.
as much as I've never been into conspiracy theories,strangely much of this is proving true....but it still doesn't make sense why they would want to put Islamists in power unless they are Islamists themselves, as in the case of Obama.

His father is an imam, he's studying religious studies and terrorism studies, he cites from the Koran and Hadith scipture that ISIS is following and discusses how ISIS is formed with all Muslims and Islamists. He grew up in Moracco and learned to hate the enemies of Allah, Jews and Christians. The first chapter of the Koran teaches them to hate all non Muslims in their prayers and sermons. Their goal is to make Islam the religion of the whole world. Thankfully he grew up and chose to convert to Christianity.
Think Obama will listen? I hope this video goes viral and Obama is forced to listen to it.
Over the weekend a friend of Officer Darren Wilson called a radio station giving the officer's account of the Michael Brown shooting. CNN's Don Lemon spoke to people close to the investigation who confirmed that the radio story was the same as the one Officer Wilson gave to investigators.
Don Lemon summarized Officer Wilson's account for anchor Brook Baldwin:
click the link/pic for video of CNN w/Don Lemon and audio of the caller to Dana Loesch's show. Based on this account and the consistency of the officers testimony and, eyewitness audio discussing what happened during the shooting and the results of two autopsy reports it sounds like Officer Wilson may be vindicated in shooting Michael Brown.
Their horrendous plight was revealed after some 8,000 Yazidis were finally able to escape down Mount Sinjar where they have been under siege for the last week.
The Iraqi children 'drinking their parents' BLOOD to stay alive':
How refugees stranded on Mount Sinjar are cutting their hands to save their young
Horrific stories of 30,000 Yazidis trapped by Islamic State jihadists emerge after 8,000 escape down the mountain
Hundreds of families have made it across border into Turkey and Syria after trekking for days in 45C temperatures
Minority sect has been sent scattering in all directions after Islamic State jihadists stormed their town a week ago
Some families have been forced to pay smugglers to take them through rivers and minefields to make it to safety
Another 130 U.S. troops have arrived in Iraq to assess the crisis facing 30,000 Yazidis trapped on Mount Sinjar
British Government also remained under pressure to consider military intervention to rescue the refugees
If the US doesn't do more to save these people who will? It wasn't until the US decided to start sending humanitarian aid that others started doing the same, it's time for the US to lead and rescue these people off the mountain, offer them asylum if necessary...stop importing illegals who are not nearly in as much danger as these poor people, and bombard ISIS/IS into hell!
8/13 4:53pm MST
there are at least 50K?>RT @iNewsroom: [ALERT] Hagel: Less likely US will undertake Iraq rescue mission bc fewer refugees on mountain. [AP]
Update 4:59pm MST
@itvnews: US rescue mission to Iraq's Mount Sinjar now 'unlikely to take place,' officials say http://t.co/5IHOrBU4oW.
"The team has assessed that there are far fewer Yazidis on Mt. Sinjar than previously feared," the Pentagon said in a statement. "The Yazidis who remain are in better condition than previously believed and continue to have access to the food and water that we have dropped.
"Based on this assessment the interagency has determined that an evacuation mission is far less likely," the statement said, adding that the United States would continue to provide humanitarian assistance as needed.
So I guess the @StateDept, @BarackObamaDOD,Hagel are ok leaving thousands to die on the mntain,drinking their parents blood&rationing food?
OMG she's despicable, she didn't even respond to that remark except with "ok", then changes the subject to another badgering and biased question, what a witch. Then she starts answering her own question, even though he said Israel did ceasefire despite Hamas breaking another ceasefire, she claims Israel didn't stop firing...she's disgusting. This is a perfect example of media bias...disappointing to see from Sky News as I thought they were held to a better standard than the BBC and others like CNN and MSNBC in the US.
How do you lose track of weapons?? Something else is going on....Obama likely gave them to AQ like he had weapons transferred from Libya into Syria...I don't trust this traitor POTUS and his admin!
Rallies of Israel will be held across the country tomorrow
Palestinian rallies tend to involve violence, with signs reading “death to Israel” and chants of “go back to the ovens.” Advocating another Holocaust makes for lousy public relations, but their deep seated beliefs are at least honestly displayed
Pro-Israel rallies are peaceful. Jews carry signs proclaiming a love for America. Jews thank the police officers providing security. Jews sing songs for peace, and long for the day when they have a true partner for peace. Despite Hamas using their own Palestinian people as human shields, the victims still blame Israel.
For these and so many other reasons, rallies in support of Israel are spreading. A recent pro-israel rally in Los Angeles had over 2,000 attendees.
For those looking for more pro-Israel rallies, here is a calendar.

It's time to show your support for true peace and stand by Israel and the peaceful Israel supporters! Don't let the msm distort the message and let the violent rallies of the proHamas/Gaza rallies make it look like Israel is losing support. The truth is more people support peace and stand with Israel! In the end, Israel will prevail!

The only way to stop this illegal invasion and national security&health crisis is to enforce the current immigration laws and enforce/secure our borders!! We MUST know who is coming and going, whether they are kids or not, we are a nation of laws and we can not risk our lives by leaving our borders porous to disease, drug cartel, terrorists and other criminal elements. Just because kids are getting through doesn't mean criminals aren't also! The job of the federal govt is to secure our borders and keep our country&citizens safe, leaving them open to illegal immigration violates our laws and our sovereignty! This must stop!! Send them back, change the trafficking law snuck into a House bill in 2008 while Bush was a lame duck POTUS and stop letting illegals take advantage of our taxpayers,welfare system, laws and our country!
