New CDC confusion over Ebola as it deletes warning that virus can spread through coughs and sneezes from its website
- It has replaced the old language with new guidance that says there's 'no evidence' Ebola is spread through either
- The CDC also took down on Thursday a poster that said that Ebola can be transferred through 'droplets' on hard surfaces, like doorknobs
- It's unclear why the CDC abruptly changed it's Ebola advisories
- The quiet removal of information follows a public health campaign by Sen. Rand Paul to get the CDC to be 'forthright' about Ebola transfer

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Bills passed by the City Council Wednesday aim to keep detained immigrants from being deported by the federal government.The City Council voted in favor of the legislation 41-6 Wednesday.As WCBS 880’s Rich Lamb reported, the measures, supported by Mayor Bill de Blasio, would prohibit correction officials and police from handing over detainees to immigration officials.The report went on to note:“The law will only allow the city to honor the detainer if the subject has been convicted of a violent or serious felony in the last five years or if the person is a possible match on the federal terrorist watchlist,” she said.The bill would also shutter the federal immigration office on Rikers Island.

The Rosett Report » Axis of Charm Offensives: Iran, North Korea…Who’s Next?
This season, as anointed last week by the New York Times, the big charmer is North Korea. Not that there’s anything in this “charm offensive” that’s actually charming. But North Korea — with its record of rogue missile and nuclear tests, abductions, counterfeiting, threats to destroy its enemies with “seas of fire,” generally taciturn diplomats and whatnot — has set the bar so low that anything remotely resembling normal diplomatic activity (in form, if not function) tends to be hailed abroad as a promising sign. So, when North Korea sent a high-level delegation to South Korea earlier this month, freed one of the three Americans it has most recently been holding in prison, and sent forth some diplomats from its United Nations mission in New York to field questions from policy makers and the press, this outreach inspired such headlines as the Times’s “The Latest North Korean Mystery: A Diplomatic Charm Offensive. ”
What’s North Korea up to? The obvious guess is that Pyongyang is trying to deflect criticism of its atrocious human rights record, as laid out in a detailed and damning report released this past March by a special UN Commission of Inquiry , led by Australian jurist Michael Kirby. This commission accused North Korea’s government, at the highest levels, of crimes against humanity, and warned North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un that he could be held responsible and referred to the international justice system. There is now a push at the UN by the European Union and Japan to urge the Security Council to refer Kim himself to the International Criminal Court. Kim evidently does not like this idea, and his diplomatic envoys have been deployed in a campaign to stop any such referral. If you’d like to sample some of this North Korean “charm,” here’s a link to a debate this past week at a UN side event in New York, hosted by the Jacob Blaustein Institute and the Committee for Human Rights in North Korea — in which Kirby goes toe-to-toe with a North Korean diplomat  over the issue of the Kim regime’s crimes against humanity. …

"… somewhere a leftwing blogger might accuse the administration of racial profiling."Holman Jenkins: Why No Ebola Travel Ban? Politics - WSJ - WSJ
By Holman W. Jenkins, Jr. Updated Oct. 29, 2014
… West Africans are learning too: how and when transmission is likely
to occur; that a 10-day window exists before symptoms become observable;
that their survival chances are much greater in a Western hospital;
that they would be unwise to mention any contact with Ebola patients
until safely in the arms of Western medicine.
So far the only cure for Ebola comes from the patient’s own immune system, and there’s
hope infection rates are slowing as the virus works through those in
poor immune health or whose genetic make-up renders them vulnerable.
There’s a related dynamic in politics. Liberals whose attitudes are
generally a minority taste (as surveys tell us) are especially
vulnerable at election time, and, sure enough, nature has sought out
that vulnerability repeatedly in the case of Team Obama.
The Benghazi attack came just before the 2012 election. Ebola arrived just
before this year’s midterm, which in the minds of the administration and
perhaps nobody else means that any travel ban on West Africans is
unacceptable because somewhere a leftwing blogger might accuse the
administration of racial profiling.
The only evidence we have for
this theory, admittedly, is the pre-emptive ranting about a “racist”
response to Ebola in blogs and publications the administration cares
about, including the New York Times. We also have the administration’s
wholly unpersuasive arguments for why it won’t block private West
African arrivals from the most afflicted countries.
Politicians are experts at camouflage …

Non-American Ebola patients to be treated in US? | Fox News Video
Oct. 28, 2014 - 2:48 - New docs obtained by Fox News prove Obama administration is considering or thinking about a plan to bring Ebola patients who are not American citizens to the U.S. for treatment.
Low estimate is $500,000 per foreign patient to be brought in to US for Ebola treatment.
This is at the core of the administration's stubborn refusal to not restrict travel to the US from the West Africa Hot Zone. Obama has less regard for American safety than he does for Africans.

Ferguson Missouri’s population is 67% African-American. But the city’s mayor, 5 of its 6 city council members, and 94% of its police force are white. What are we going to do about it?

Under Pressure, Cuomo Says Ebola Quarantines Can Be Spent at Home - NYTimes.com
By MATT FLEGENHEIMER, MICHAEL D. SHEAR and MICHAEL BARBARO
Facing fierce resistance from the White House and medical experts to a strict new mandatory quarantine policy, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said on Sunday night that medical workers who had contact with Ebola patients in West Africa but did not show symptoms of the disease would be allowed to remain at home and would receive compensation for lost income.
Mr. Cuomo’s decision capped a frenzied weekend of behind-the-scenes pleas from administration officials, who urged him and Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey to reconsider the mandatory quarantine they had announced on Friday. Aides to President Obama also asked other governors and mayors to follow a policy based on science, seeking to stem a steady movement toward more stringent measures in recent days at the state level.
The announcement by Mr. Cuomo seemed intended to draw a sharp contrast — both in tone and in fact — to the policy’s implementation in New Jersey, where a nurse from Maine who arrived on Friday from Sierra Leone was swiftly quarantined in a tent set up inside a Newark hospital, with a portable toilet but with no shower. …
