You may recall a relaxed President Obama calmly reassuring the American public that the risk of Ebola reaching U.S. shores was “extremely low.” Many patriots took his words with a grain of salt, and rightfully so. A new report reveals that a federal study performed by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency in conjunction with the federal Models of Infectious Disease Agency ruled that there was a 25 percent chance Ebola would hit America “within three to six weeks.”
The report was released on September 2. Obama stood in front of the American people and told his bold-faced lie on September 16, just two weeks later. “First and foremost, I want the American people to know that our experts, here at the CDC and across our government, agree that the chances of an Ebola outbreak here in the United States are extremely low,” Obama said.
Perhaps the most disheartening aspect of this report is that it is in no way surprising. Obama has lied to the American people with such frequency that this is just par for the course, sadly. The Conservative Tribune revealed Obama’s motives for lying about the Ebola crisis: he must downplay the threat in order to keep our borders wide open.
