Scientists Have Worrisome Warning Regarding Polio-Like Illness in US

Modern medicine still has no clue how to combat the mysterious virus.

There is certainly a bit of “epidemic fatigue” here in the United States, especially during this time of year.

It seems that at the beginning of every winter, we are inundated with stories the next killer flu, perhaps of the swine or bird variety, along with a plethora of other contagions that are slowly making their way through handshakes and sneezes.

This year, things are a bit different, however, as a very serious and terrifying new disease, reminiscent of polio, is spreading around the globe.  Even more troubling still, scientists believe that it could come to roost here in the United States as well.

The condition, known as acute flaccid myelitis, has struck in at least 46 states in the last four years. More than 90 percent of those who come down with the illness are children, according to the CDC.

The CDC has confirmed 182 cases of AFM so far this year. Outbreaks have occurred most frequently in the summer and fall.

Nancy Messonnier, director for the National Center for Immunizations and Respiratory Diseases, said in a conference call with reporters last month that the CDC is still unsure of the cause.

“It may be one of the viruses that we’ve already detected,” Messonnier said. “It may be a virus that we haven’t yet detected. Or it could be that the virus is kicking off another process and it’s actually triggering through an autoimmune process.”

The prognosis doesn’t look great, either.

“It is impossible to say if we’ll have any real answers [by 2020], because this a complex public health challenge,” Thomas A. Clark, the epidemiologist leading the CDC’s response to AFM, told the Dallas Morning News. “Until we fully understand what causes AFM, we can’t help protect people against it.”

The mystery illness began spreading back in 2014, but had an unfortunately fruitful year in 2018.

Obama: My Admin Didn’t Pursue Reparations Due to the ‘Politics of White Resistance’

Ummm, okay then.

No black person with any self-respect would ask for reparations from taxpayers who had nothing to do with slavery. That being said, a lot of black people would love reparations – despite living in a country where they can become a multi-millionaire if they work hard enough. From The Daily Wire: Former President Barack Obama told his podcast co-host, Bruce Springsteen, that he would have liked to pursue reparations for slavery as part of his presidential agenda, but that the “politics of white resistance” made the issue a “non-starter.” Obama and Springsteen recently launched a podcast together where the pair discuss how to pursue “unity” among Americans and forge friendships across party, class, and racial lines. The podcast is billed as two friends from polar opposite backgrounds coming together — Springsteen from a working-class New Jersey upbringing and Obama from a childhood spent in Hawaii and later, in Chicago — but both Springsteen and Obama are now wealthy Democrats. Obama blabbered, “And what I saw during my presidency was the politics of White resistance and resentment. The talk of ‘welfare queens’ and the talk of the ‘undeserving’ poor. And the backlash against affirmative action. All that made the prospect of actually proposing any kind of coherent, meaningful reparations program struck me as, politically, not only a nonstarter but potentially counterproductive.” From Daily Wire: Former first lady Michelle Obama demonized tens of millions of Americans on Saturday after news organizations declared Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden the winner of the 2020 election—despite the fact that ballots are still being counted and the Trump campaign has filed lawsuits in several states—claiming without evidence that those who voted for President Donald Trump voted to support “lies, hate, chaos, and division.” LOOK: https://twitter.com/MichelleObama/status/1325141018480578567 https://twitter.com/MichelleObama/status/1325141020510625797 https://twitter.com/MichelleObama/status/1325141021647269888 https://twitter.com/MichelleObama/status/1325141022570131457 https://twitter.com/MichelleObama/status/1325141023979270145 https://twitter.com/MichelleObama/status/1325141025808134144 https://twitter.com/MichelleObama/status/1325141665821061122 https://twitter.com/MichelleObama/status/1325141667414904833 https://twitter.com/MichelleObama/status/1325141669021425664

He is most likely responsible for the deaths of countless Americans in his state, due to poor COVID-19 policies. He’s also facing allegations of sexual harassment. If this guy was a Republican, he would’ve been forced to resign long ago. Luckily for Andrew Cuomo, the MSM is on his side. Here’s the scoop, via New York Post: A former aide to Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Wednesday provided new details to back up her claims of sexual harassment — including an allegation that New York’s top elected official kissed her “on the lips” without warning inside his Manhattan office. Lindsey Boylan — now a Democratic candidate for Manhattan borough president — made the stunning allegation in an essay posted on the Medium website. Boylan said the incident took place after her 2018 promotion to be Cuomo’s deputy secretary for economic development and special advisor to the governor — a job she initially turned down “because I didn’t want to be near him.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/DailyCaller/status/1361406820712140802?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1361406820712140802%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fgov-cuomo-now-blaming-experts-staff-for-bringing-covid-into-nursing-homes%2F https://twitter.com/dcexaminer/status/1361406777036845062?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1361406777036845062%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fgov-cuomo-now-blaming-experts-staff-for-bringing-covid-into-nursing-homes%2F https://twitter.com/phillyrich1/status/1361409907170435076?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1361409907170435076%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fgov-cuomo-now-blaming-experts-staff-for-bringing-covid-into-nursing-homes%2F MORE: https://twitter.com/JaniceDean/status/1361411492218867712 https://twitter.com/JaniceDean/status/1361409204758736907?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1361409204758736907%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fgov-cuomo-now-blaming-experts-staff-for-bringing-covid-into-nursing-homes%2F https://twitter.com/JaniceDean/status/1361412427137634307?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1361412427137634307%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fgov-cuomo-now-blaming-experts-staff-for-bringing-covid-into-nursing-homes%2F
