In the days of Skype, e-mail, and instant messaging, there are few reasons for people to travel outside quarantined areas – oh wait – Obama’s people at the CDC and the TSA did not think there was any real risk of an outbreak in the United States and did not make the call to quarantine visitors with suspicious travel histories. Now, for the first time, we have an Ebola disease vector in the heartland of America.
Confirmed: Ebola In Dallas, Texas …
While Ebola has not yet mutated into an airborne virus, the infectious waste from any infected Ebola patient can infect others. And since there are no cures, outside of intensive medical intervention and life support, the probability of accessing life-saving medical care should the virus spread domestically is not good. Add to the commercial airline vector, those who sneak across our borders and you have a recipe for a pandemic disaster.
Cynicism on display …
I am just cynical enough to believe that the progressive socialist democrats will act upon the current crisis and implement some forms of public policy that will enlarge the size and scope of government -- following the counsel of Rahm Emanuel and never letting a crisis go to waste.
The commerce clause that was considered by our founding fathers to allow the government to set standards of trade, remove interstate tariffs, and to promote trade and commerce has been used by the government to confer powers that would be prohibited to the federal government and are reserved to the states and the people.
The Commerce Clause refers to Article 1, Section 8, Clause 3 of the U.S. Constitution, which gives Congress the power “to regulate commerce with foreign nations, and among the several states, and with the Indian tribes.” <Source>
There is nothing in this clause that would convey to the federal government or, more specifically, the President of the United States to be able to override the Constitution of the United State and deprive citizens of their constitutional rights for an unspecified period of time and no judicial review or access.
Bottom line …
Both the CDC and the TSA could have imposed travel restrictions an in-country certified quarantines for travelers coming from areas known to have been contaminated by Ebola.
Be safe and demand that your elected officials do their duty to keep America and Americans safe. As we have seen, the diseases of Central America have been introduced to the continental United States by our elected officials who have dispersed children and adults throughout the United States without notification to the cities, counties, and states involved. A potential ticking time bomb has been planted in many communities by Barack Obama and his illegal and lawless immigration programs.
