President Obama Already Has An Ebola Czar. Where Is She?

So are you panicking over the Ebola virus? No, of course you’re not, like me, you understand the utter futility of panic. I imagine also, like me, as well, you find it worrisome, it gives the TV folks something to talk about, nor would it hurt if someone in the government was in charge. The thing is, there is. There is a federal bureaucrat (and agency) specifically charged to take care of this kind of stuff.

So of course, that is the one person who hasn’t had anything to say about it. But Mollie Hemingway thinks we should meet her, and she’s right. This woman is the head of a multi-billion dollar agency tasked to protect us from things like Ebola, and biowar, and stuff like that. She, and the agency, appear to be totally corrupt as well. (Wait, why would that surprise you?)

Mollie found a video from the administrator about the agency, here it is.

You did note that her highest priority is to support the President, right? I would have thought it was to carry out the agency’s mission but, I’m old fashioned like that.

As the Ebola situation in West Africa continues to deteriorate, some U.S. officials are claiming that they would have been able to better deal with the public health threat if only they had more money.

Dr. Francis Collins, who heads the National Institutes of Health (NIH), told The Huffington Post, “Frankly, if we had not gone through our 10-year slide in research support, we probably would have had a vaccine in time for this that would’ve gone through clinical trials and would have been ready.” Hillary Clinton also claimed that funding restrictions were to blame for inability to combat Ebola.

Or did they?

See, in 2004, Congress passed The Project Bioshield Act. The text of that legislation authorized up to $5,593,000,000 in new spending by NIH for the purpose of purchasing vaccines that would be used in the event of a bioterrorist attack. A major part of the plan was to allow stockpiling and distribution of vaccines.

Just two years later, Congress passed the Pandemic and All-Hazards Preparedness Act, which created a new assistant secretary for preparedness and response to oversee medical efforts and called for a National Health Security Strategy. The Act established Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority as the focal point within HHS for medical efforts to protect the American civilian population against naturally occurring threats to public health.

Of course, you realize that incompetent Washington politicians and bureaucrat (redundancy alert) will throw more of your hard earned money (that they stole from you) at the problem. It will also be ineffective.

Why?

Because they’re corrupt as well as incompetent.

Our government at work.

    NEO Nails it.

    Just like our Public Schools, apparently throwing more money at the problem has the opposite effect of improvement.
    All that matters now is trying to blame anything other than Leftist Liberal Progressive Politics.
    Anything.
    Even You.

  3. “Therefore in one day her plagues will overtake her: death, mourning and famine…” (Rev. 18: 8)

    I will leave Revelation 17 & 18 and “Babylon” to our reading and study! Noting Rev. 17: 5-6 verse 24 chap. 18, with chap. 19: 2! But, do we really care, and believe these Texts today, that is the great question?

    • And one thing is sure, God’s Word considers “Babylon” a humanistic, rebellious, anti-God entity on the world stage as human history draws to a conclusion. And surely our time of modernity & postmodernity has Babylon centre stage in the political agenda, also. But Babylon is more than just secular, but also humanistic religion, and even modern paganism… “Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.” (Rev. 22: 14, NIV 2011)

        • Btw, its no secret that I am NOT much one for today’s political, even conservatism has for the most part become compromised! Btw too for those “thelog’s” out there, ya might want to check out John Frame’s 2011 book: The Escondido Theology, A Reformed Response to Two Kingdom Theology. Of course this is basically an American book, but it still hits the notes of the issue to my mind! And indeed this is the age of a secular faith, among historical Churches & Christians, and I say this with sadness!
