Outbreak on the Border

Health authorities at a Navy base in Southern California took steps last weekend to curtail an outbreak of pneumonia and swine flu among illegal immigrant children housed at the facility, according to U.S. officials.

The outbreak of disease among several of the nearly 600 immigrant children at the Naval Base Ventura County, located north of Los Angeles, initially was thought to be caused by deadly bacterial streptococcal meningitis, according to one official close to the issue.

However, a spokesman for the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) said he was not aware of any cases of meningitis at the base.

The pneumonia cases and meningitis scare last weekend followed two cases of H1N1 swine flu among other child immigrants—one at the California base and another in Texas. The virus caused a global pandemic in 2009, but officials said it is considered less dangerous than the meningitis outbreak that began over the past weekend.

Naval officials, along with HHS and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) officials, sought to block the disease outbreak by quarantines and halting transfers of children into and out of the facility.

These are DISEASES shipped to every state by Obama
and this treasonous DH”S” and DO”J”.

They are engaging in attempted murder with each flight,
with each entry of a each terrorist.

I’m shocked! Why didn’t they warn us about this?

This is a terrible thing to foist on the American people. We do not want this and we do not want these immigrants. Putting our people and our kids in jeopardy is a breach of the job of the federal government.

Their job is to protect Americans, not subject them to horrible diseases by allowing those who have broken our laws to gain admittance to this country and expect us to pay for all the welfare involved. I consider this an act of war against the US. Manufactured by Obama, of course.

Just pathetic and reprehensible.

This is not possible. Obama assured us that none of the criminals entering our country illegally were spreading diseases. Would he lie?

So they thought it was meningitis, but then they weren't aware of any cases of meningitis, but then there was an outbreak of meningitis over the past weekend. YUP, THAT's Government.

They were warned that any
doctors exposing the Tyrant’s plan
or the exact microbes already on the ground
and in the air ... will be taken and put to ground.

Obama has ALREADY begun CW2.

Americans have only now begun to notice.

The snowball continues its downhill roll.

Fear the snowball. Coming soon to a community near you, maybe your community.

Doctors thought Sasha Obama had bacterial meningitis when she was just a baby. Obama described it as the “hardest moment in his life”. Guess other people’s kids being exposed to meningitis just don’t count.

You - DeepInTheHeartOfTexas want to be warned your children and neighbors are going to be exposed to swine flu? What’s next? You want to be warned about ebola?

They never told me not to drink the water in Mexico.

My honeymoon was less than enjoyable.

I’m so sorry - that shouldn’t happen to anyone deep-in-the-heart - especially on their honeymoon. Especially a freeper...you have my sympathy.

Had a friend who went to Mexico and ordered a big salad.. lettuce had been washed in Mexican water... similar out come.

Head of Bioterrorism Lab at the CDC resigned this week.

Lab workers hadn’t been following all security protocols and the step is being attributed to lax safety measures.

Of course, if there was a Bioterrorism threat being identified associated with enemies within, those likely to first figure it out might be working at the Lab and might be taking evidence to others. The reasons cited would be a likely public report.

On the other hand, if the issue was poor safety procedures, that would probably would have been handled much more sensitively without any public release.

IMHO, something stinks here.
