Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, August 04, 2014

Three top secret, experimental vials stored at subzero temperatures were flown into Liberia last week in a last-ditch effort to save two American missionary workers who had contracted Ebola, according to a source familiar with details of the treatment. A representative from the National Institutes of Health contacted Samaritan's Purse in Liberia and offered the experimental treatment, known as ZMapp, for the two patients, according to the source. The drug was developed by the biotech firm Mapp Biopharmaceutical Inc. The patients were told that this treatment had never been tried before in a human being but had shown promise in small experiments with monkeys.

First of all - never link to breitbart if you want intelligent people to take you seriously.

Secondly, this is an ebola thread, not a border crisis thread.

But it's not surprising that someone linking to breitbart can't tell the difference.

They are related, I understand most places you visit don't have sources linked, but in this case and in many cases for this particular author he has a source for his material.

Here is the document, it shows people from the affected countries are making their way through the border. ......
www.scribd.com

I realize it has a Breitbart watermark, does that disturb you too?

If so, would it be your contention that only people from central america are crossing the border? Where do you get this idea?

If not where are the statistics for people crossing the border?

Are you saying people don't fly here legally from Africa, they all sneak in? That's incredibly racist and ignorant.

It should disturb you. Why on earth anyone would take news from a source that is proven over and over again to be full of crap is beyond me. But to then take that source and use it to prove a point to people outside the right wing alternate reality world is pretty pointless.

The only point you can prove with a breitbart link is that you are a partisan sucker who isn't even interested in truth or intelligent discourse.

#5 & 8 ~ You must prove that something in a report is false by demonstrating why that is in particular a fact; not by asserting everything on the site from which it came is false, which in fact proves nothing, and should be an obviously suspect statement on its face.

You might want to state [I disagree with the radical Right agenda of Breitbart.com & therefore ascribe to nothing coming from that source]. To me that would sound more reasonable & credible on your part.

(i'm not familiar with the website & might agree with you if i was--that is, given information above & beyond a particular political persuasion.)

Here's just one example. Google will find you many others.

www.thewire.com

A breitbart writer made a false claim about chuck hagel, then when confronted about it, his response was "it was obviously a joke."

So are they're apparently a comedy site. Anyone using them as a source of real info is a joker.

I'll believe it is an incredible victory for modern medicine and science.

No miracle though.

Ya got me... I'm a joker coz I got's no common sense..... but the way I see it...

I'm in Africa, infected with Ebola... NO Doctors, NO hospitals, NO medicine... death for me is certain...

- - or - -

I can sell everything I have - buy a one way ticket to Mexico city and be inside the USA within two days...

I simply have to cough and hack and say Eeeeeebowl-ah very slowly in English to any DHS rep and I'll get - FREE - Doctors, hospitals and medicine.

Gee I wonder which I'll choose ????

It's not like we offer free food and housing for up to 3 years -- aaaw right, WE ALREADY DO !

Sure, Homeland Security will wave you right in when you appear at the U.S. border claiming to have Ebola [/snark off]

[snark on]

Typically, when illegals are captured by CBP, such as the 1,000 from Ebola-struck nations, the federal government will shelter them before shipping them by Greyhound or other bus lines to their relatives in other parts of the U.S. under the pretense that the illegals will show up for an immigration hearing, but 90% of them never do.

And these illegals are not checked for a variety of diseases before being released.

"Sure, Homeland Security will wave you right in when you appear at the U.S. border claiming to have Ebola" - YEP, THAT'S WHAT I'VE BEEN SAYING...

BUT, They probably WOULD stop you if you said something like...

"Where be da white women??" [Blazin Saddles snark /off]

LOL You haven't officially entered the U.S. until they wave you in.

Tell them you have Ebola and that isn't likely to happen. Give it a try and let us know what happens :-)
