CRUZ: FAA needs to ensure Ebola victims are kept away from U.S.

Look who's sounding more presidential in the protection of our citizenry than the actual President, yet again...
Politico: Following reports that someone infected with Ebola has turned up in his home state of Texas, Sen. Ted Cruz on Thursday asked the Federal Aviation Administration to “take every available precaution in preventing additional cases from arriving in the United States.”

The FAA so far has responded to concerns about Ebola by saying it is working closely with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which is taking the lead on responding to the threat.

“Due to the Obama administration’s unclear approach to addressing the threat of the Ebola virus, Americans — particularly the Texans who have possibly been exposed — deserve specific answers to how the administration is addressing travel to and from the countries impacted by the disease,” Cruz said in a statement that accompanied the letter.

In his letter, the Republican senator requests answers to a litany of questions, including what kind of training air crews receive that would help them recognize someone infected with Ebola, the extent to which the FAA intends to act to limit or suspend flights, the notification rights of passengers who may have shared a plane with an Ebola sufferer, and any projections of how many additional people infected with Ebola could arrive in the United States via air.

Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas) also chimed in Thursday evening, saying it’s “appropriate to review our policies for travel to and from the countries most affected by the Ebola outbreak.”
Peculiar how this administration can make the call to ban flights to Israel for a few wayward missiles lobbed towards the Jewish nation, but when it comes to preventing a pandemic, oh, now we've gotta be politically sensitive? And this passes for reason?

Common sense. And this should be as apparent as keeping illegals out and securing our border for some of the same reasons (i.e., Enterovirus D68, anyone?), among a litany of others, including basic law and order. Of course, common sense is something highly lacking in this President, this administration, and Washington, D.C. in general, right now.

It seems as though Obama wants it ALL (disease, illegals, Islam, utter dependency & despair) to come ashore as his fundamental transformation of America from a first world country to second, then third, then collapse of our civil society. We've had it too good for too long, the Left says. Incompetency and lawlessness is a disastrous cocktail for our nation, folks. This never needs to happen again, yet we're on track for it with the segregated caucuses of the Democratic Party riling up the masses, the current Imperial President hellbent on selective anti-colonialist tendencies (contradictions much?), a disaster of a First Lady/Senator/Secretary of State in-waiting to be the First Female President, likely followed by an unknown as of yet First Hispanic President from Democratic offerings, not to forget their unelected, unAmerican implants throughout the administration, and that's bookended by a neutered opposition that's supposed to be the alternative.

The only true alternative to avoid such a rudderless direction lies in a statesman like the one above, if not this very individual. Will America be ready, or does it have to get worse first? That's the question that remains.
