CDC: Ebola Could Infect A Half Million By January

From Washington Post:

The Ebola epidemic sweeping West Africa could infect up to 500,000 people by the end of January, according to a new estimate under development by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The CDC projection assumes no additional aid by governments and relief agencies. But the United States this week launched a $750 million effort to establish treatment facilities with 1,700 beds in Liberia, the hardest hit country. And the U.N. Security Council voted unanimously Thursday to create an emergency medical mission to respond to the outbreak, with an advance team in West Africa by the end of the month.

CDC Classifies Gun Violence as a Contagious Disease

From Sunshine State News:

The study was commissioned in January as one of Obama’s 23 executive orders to enact gun control. To get Congress to fund it with taxpayers’ money, the CDC had to classify gun violence as “a contagious disease.”  It’s all phony baloney, but after Sandy Hook, the general feeling in the corridors of the White House was that the end justifies the means.

CDC: No Connection Bewteen Gun Laws and Lower Crime

From Emily Miller at The Washington Times:

An extensive 2002 study by the Centers for Disease Control examined firearms laws from all across the country and concluded none were effective in thwarting violent criminals. Such facts can’t always stand up to the effect an all-out White House campaign can have on public opinion. A Pew Research Center Poll released Thursday shows that support for the “assault weapons” ban reached 55 percent. Two years ago, a Gallup poll put support for the ban at only 43 percent.
