• The Latest Argument Against an Ebola Travel Ban May Be the Most Insane

    The various officials heading up the anti-Ebola measures in the United States have consistently claimed independence from President Obama, and insisted that any recommendations made or conclusions drawn have nothing to do with politics. But that’s had many critics scratching their heads, since CDC Director Tom Frieden and NIAID Director Anthony Fauci have frequently drawn red lines against a travel ban in recent weeks, yet their reasons for opposing one have been absolutely nonsensical.  What further strains their credibility is the fact that they’ve been on television with almost non-stop parroting of Obama’s talking points on the virus. Couple all of that with the fact that the president has just appointed an “Ebola Czar” named Ron Klain — who has no medical experience whatsoever but is well known as a Democratic political operative — and you’d be hard-pressed to convince anyone that the administration is taking this as seriously as they claim they are.

    I’ve assumed since the beginning of this crisis that Obama’s opposition to a travel ban has a lot to do with his plans for signing an executive order on illegal immigration after the November elections. Since liberals are completely consumed with the notion that making it harder for people to come to America is somehow racist, it only makes sense that POTUS doesn’t want to undermine his own political plans by delivering what he sees as a political win for border control proponents in a travel ban. But his bigger problem is the fact that the chorus of voices in America calling for such a ban is becoming increasingly louder and more bipartisan…and the excuses are getting more ridiculous:

    There’s not a lot of people trying to get into the country,” said Dr. Anthony Fauci on CNN’s State of the Union (video above).


    There’s a TON of people trying to get into this country, Dr. F! From those who’d rather try their chances with America’s health system to be saved from a deadly illness (as Thomas Eric Duncan attempted) to those sneaking over here to seek refuge from political oppression, the entire reason that illegal immigration has become such a contentious issue in America is precisely because just about EVERYONE wants to be here.

    It’s clear that Dr. Fauci isn’t making his public declarations based on what’s best for the country, but rather, what’s best for Obama politically. He even stated outright that he believes protective gear like hazmat suits should be worn for political purposes. Dr. Fauci is just as political as anyone connected to Barry, and for that, he should be canned. Of course, when you’re serving this particular president, that will never happen unless you engage in a much larger misstep — such as falling out of line with the administration’s narrative. In my opinion, the guy simply needs to lay off the television interviews and just do his job. I honestly don’t care to hear Fauci’s policy prescriptions for America if they’re just going to be a rehash of Obama nonsense. But he insists that’s not the case:

    I’ve never had an experience where the president is telling me to tell him something that he wants to hear,” the doctor asserted.

    I’m sure Obama phoned up Fauci after the interview, congratulating him on the appearance…and a job welll done.
