Dr. Obama’s orders: Get the measles vaccine

Dr-ObamaOriginally posted at American Thinker

Employing a time-tested Cloward-Piven tactic, President Obama has created another crisis and, right on schedule, has also come up with a brilliant solution.

In an interview with NBC’s Savannah Guthrie where the president bragged about turning the White House into a distillery, shared his opinion on deflated balls, and advised against cheating, “If you break the rules, then you break the rules” (as if he should talk), Dr. Obama advised parents to “get your kids vaccinated.”

This is a man who, expressly for the purpose of philosophical and political expediency, has deliberately placed the children of America in danger by exposing them to diseases long eradicated from our midst.  In Obama’s sick, twisted world, and in an effort to foster fairness, he has knowingly allowed illegals into this country who are infected with illnesses that have put everyone, but most especially vulnerable children, trapped in classrooms or visiting theme parks like Disneyland, at great risk.

Here parents take their children on a long-anticipated vacation, and instead of coming home with just a memento from Space Mountain, they come home with a raging case of red measles.  Or, worse yet, you send your kids off to school, and they step off the school bus with a respiratory virus like Enterovirus D-68, which has killed 15 Americans, most of whom were children.

And who’s responsible?  Unfortunately, it’s the person now advising us on how to prevent contracting the illnesses he’s at fault for exposing us to.

Here’s what the expert on everything who really knows nothing had to say to a gushing Guthrie on the subject of vaccines:

I understand that there are families that in some cases are concerned about the effect of vaccinations. The science is, you know, pretty indisputable. We’ve looked at this again and again. There is every reason to get vaccinated, but there aren’t reasons to not.

Right about now, the bigger concern is what other dangerous policy or self-serving maneuver the guy giving the medical counsel has up his sleeve.

Not only that, but having a climate-change fearmonger who denies that the Taliban are terrorists lecture us about the indisputable findings of anything, let alone vaccines, is laughable.  Moreover, who is the “we’ve” Obama is referring to as having “looked at this again and again”?  Himself and Valerie Jarrett?

On the subject of measles and vaccines, Obama finished up by advising:

You should get your kids vaccinated. It’s good for them, but we should be able to get back to the point where measles effectively is not existing in this country.

“Is not existing in this country”?  Somebody, please, plug in the Teleprompter.

So, according to Obama, get your kids vaccinated, because the person exposing them to deadly viruses insists that “it’s good for them,” which is kind of like Bill Clinton, a visitor to Jeffrey Epstein’s “Underage Sex Island,” advising parents on how to protect their children from sexual predators.

How infuriating is it that the president has set the eradication of measles back 14 years by knowingly reintroducing a virus that hasn’t really been on the CDC radar since the year 2000?  Then, to make matters worse, he places the onus back on Americans to take the responsibility for getting the nation “back to the point where,” as Obama eloquently notes, “measles effectively is not existing in this country.”

Blaming Mickey and Other Measles Scapegoats

After Enterovirus D-68, a virus that arrived in the US from Latin America, killed 15 Americans, most of them children, and paralyzed dozens, the CDC is finally ’fessing up that the newest epidemic, the Disneyland measles outbreak, had its origin overseas.  According to Dr. Anne Schuchat of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “We don’t know exactly how this outbreak started but we do think it was likely a person infected with measles overseas.”

Overseas? How about over the border?

Unwilling to put the blame on the thousands upon thousands of unaccompanied minors that Obama encouraged to migrate north last summer or the possibility that an illegal visiting Disneyland is the source, is the CDC actually suggesting the culprit might be a travelling American, or a visitor from overseas, or perhaps Dumbo or even Mickey Mouse?

The CDC is saying “We assume that someone got infected with measles overseas, visited Disneyland park, and spread the disease to others.”  In other words, it could have been absolutely anyone, from anywhere!

According to Rear Admiral Anne Schuchat M.D., assistant surgeon general of the United States Public Health Service and director of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases (NCIRD), one person with the highly contagious measles virus can infect 12 to 18 people. So whomever the “overseas” person was that went to Disneyland with the intent to visit the “happiest place on earth,” he or she has managed to start a chain of events that has affected 91 Minnie and Mickey fans and made 100 people in eight states extremely unhappy.

Meanwhile, illegal immigration advocates must be hoping that guilt-ridden Americans who are used to accepting fault for everything from slavery to worldwide terrorism will forget what took place on America’s border last summer.

But a quick stroll down memory lane brings to mind a certain government-contracted security force nicknamed the “brown shirts.”  The brown shirts threatened doctors and nurses with arrest if they revealed any information about the illnesses they were seeing at the San Antonio, Texas Lackland Air Force Base refugee camp, where thousands of illegal alien children were being housed.

Maybe remorseful Americans need to be reminded that one anonymous source said that there were children in the camp with measles, scabies, chicken pox and strep throat, not to mention children with visible lice crawling in their hair.

Also, let us not forget that, according to the US government’s “Office of Refugee Resettlement,” there were approximately 60,000 “unaccompanied minors” who were relocated, some of whom were documented to have – you guessed it – the measles.

Therefore, logic dictates that there’s a good chance the measles carrier was not one tourist or a single American returning from abroad, and the CDC implying that this is the case is an insult to everyone’s intelligence.

In a moment of scrupulousness, Dr. Schuchat did admit that the virus affecting Americans is similar to strains currently infecting the people of Indonesia and the Muslim nations of Qatar, Azerbaijan, and Dubai.

So in other words, human germ canisters have proven to “armed insurgents” and anyone else interested in triggering another “man-caused disaster” that a shot at successful bio-warfare actually exists.

Bio-warfare or not, measles still has a 90 percent transmission rate among people who are not immunized or otherwise immune to it. So now as the virus spreads, on behalf of the politician responsible, Dr. Schuchat is dutifully implying that Americans are to blame.

Schuchat insists that the measles cases are exponentially growing because some Americans fail to get vaccinated or get their children vaccinated.  She feels that “this is not a problem of the measles vaccine not working. It’s a problem of the measles vaccine not being used. Measles can be a very serious disease and people need to be vaccinated.”

So wait – this outbreak is not because thousands of unvaccinated children from other countries exposed American children to a virus that was eradicated from the United States 14 years ago? No, it’s because of anti-vaxxers who chose not to vaccinate because, before Obama ushered in a Third World invasion, concern about contracting the measles was minimal.

Schuchat added, “Measles is still common around the world and we estimate there are around 20 million cases a year. Of them, more than 145,000 die every year. For every 1,000 children who get measles, one to three of them die despite treatment.”

Not to mention that “28 percent of kids who get measles are sick enough to be hospitalized, and can suffer permanent brain damage.”

Speaking of brain damage, here’s an idea for “virus hunter” Anne Schuchat:  How about suggesting to the president that it’s a bad idea to purposely import contagions that have long been eliminated and unnecessarily expose American children to viruses and bacteria that make many deathly ill and kill others?

On second thought, the CDC will probably be forced to toe Obama’s blame-game line, which means it’s only a matter of time until someone suggests that it was unvaccinated American children who infected “unaccompanied minors” with the measles.

Vaccinated or not, on behalf of the CDC, Dr. Schuchat’s public service announcement did warn that “You can catch measles just by being in the same room as a person who has measles.” Did she mean “room” as in public school classrooms filled with illegal children?

Then Dr. Anne suggested that “If [adults] are not sure whether [they] have had the measles vaccine or not…there’s no harm in getting another MMR vaccine.”

So there you have it.

Despite Obama knowingly importing infected youngsters with, among other things, the measles, children whose parents have decided, in a free country, for whatever reason, be it religious, philosophical, or medical, not to vaccinate are now being impugned for starting a measles crisis.

As for adults who have already had the measles vaccine, to preclude contracting a deadly virus from children who shouldn’t be in America to begin with, they’re now being told there’s no harm in getting a booster.

Once again, kudos goes to the President!

The Invasion of Enterovirus EV-D68

Unfortunately for the rest of America, liberals are not going to realize the damage they have wrought on all of us until they personally experience the ramifications of supporting Barack Obama.

At this juncture, maybe an illegal-immigrant-caused mini pandemic will rouse liberals out of the fevered delusion that this president somehow has the best interests of the nation’s children at heart.

What is obvious is that Barack Obama does have the best interests of children at heart: illegal immigrant children harboring viruses and communicable diseases. American children who are defenseless against the onslaught, not so much.

Maybe liberals haven’t noticed yet, but it hasn’t taken all that long for the infective consequences of President Obama’s refusal to put Americans first to befall the most innocent among us. For starters, Ohio, California, and Kansas are just a few of the states already struggling to contain measles outbreaks.

Now, in addition to measles, more than 1,000 children in 10 states — Missouri, Kansas, Illinois, Kentucky, Iowa, Colorado, Ohio, Oklahoma, North Carolina, and Georgia — have suddenly become infected with a rare respiratory virus, not seen in the U.S. since the 1960s, called human Enterovirus EV-D68. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention claim that the rare strain is related to the same rhinovirus responsible for causing the common cold.

The dire prediction is that in the coming weeks and months, Enterovirus EV-D68, origin unknown, is due to spread to all 50 states and afflict great numbers of otherwise healthy children.

Referring to borders between states, ABC News Chief Health and Medical Editor Dr. Richard Besser said a mouthful when he pointed out that “Viruses don’t tend to respect borders.” The problem for America is that if international borders are not respected, viruses native to other countries migrate as well, and to date are being scattered around the nation, rather than deported.

What more potent a formula for disaster than “unaccompanied minors” with all sorts of contagious diseases coming across the border into our communities, and more specifically into our schools, where American children are now falling ill.

That’s why the obvious question is this: Where did Enterovirus EV-D68 originate and did it ‘entero’ the U.S. via illegal children?

Dr. Besser contended that enteroviruses tend to show up in the summer, which, this year, just so happens to coincide with thousands of unvaccinated and sickly illegal children infiltrating the U.S. border.

Besser also claimed the virus spreads when children go back to school. Unfortunately, what the good doctor chose not to mention is that viruses of unknown origin have more of an opportunity to spread if public schools are overrun with illegal students infected with God-knows-what.

Then Besser said, and this is a winner for sure, that “This particular Enterovirus EV-D68 is very rare and they have no idea why it showed up this year.”

If Dr. Richard Besser doesn’t suspect that the flood of children from south of the border are bringing with them all sorts of Third-World diseases and are likely the primary source of this and many other illnesses poised to become a problem, then maybe ABC News needs a new Chief Health and Medical Editor.

At Children’s Hospital in Denver, Colorado, between mid-August and early September doctors saw more than “900 pediatric patients with symptoms of the respiratory virus in the emergency room.” Eighty-six were admitted, and a small number of children, possibly even the offspring of Colorado Obama voters, ended up in the intensive care unit.

I guess for liberals, sedated kids on breathing tubes is but a small price to pay if it furthers Obama’s agenda to welcome “unaccompanied minors” into our nation, our classrooms, and, if it comes down to it, even into our children’s lung tissue.

Professor of medicine and medical director of Doctor Radio at New York University’s Langone Medical Center Dr. Marc Siegel wrote this in Slate magazine:

As many as 50,000 children, mostly from Central American countries… are not being detained for the purpose of identifying illness, with Immigration and Customs Enforcement relying on self-report of symptoms, and many have already been sent to other states, where disease can spread.

Predictably, the medical community and the CDC are blaming the spread of this “rare” virus on seasonal allergies and the start of the school year.

Rather than daring to suggest that illegal children could be the source and quarantining – or better yet, rounding up and sending home — “unaccompanied minors,” health officials are recommending hand-washing, avoiding other sick children, covering noses and mouths when sneezing and coughing, as well as “having a game plan” if a child with asthma suddenly turns blue and can’t breathe.

Instead of playing the politically-correct denial game, would it be so wrong to suggest that the emergence of a new strain of childhood virus could be a result of the 112% increase in the numbers of new “unaccompanied minors” streaming into the country, carrying with them diseases either new, rare, or altogether eradicated from the U.S. for decades?

Either way, this season it looks like Enterovirus EV-D68 is here to stay, and will probably reach all 50 states.

As for the liberals who thought that voting for Barack Obama and supporting his so-called “compassionate immigration policies” somehow exempted them or their children from contagious diseases, they had better think again.

Rest assured, things are about to get much uglier for liberals and conservatives, adults and children alike, all of whom are at risk of being exposed, thanks to Barack Obama’s liberal agenda, to the terrors of communicable diseases and viruses much worse than Enterovirus EV-D68.
