Steve Stockman (R-TX) is not one to hold back on criticizing Barack Obama and questioning the president’s motives.
Representing the 36th Congressional District in the state that’s become the epicenter of Ebola in America, the outspoken Republican is now wondering aloud why President Obama’s response to the growing Ebola threat has been strangely slow and unusually casual.
Could Obama, Stockman asks, be creating a crisis that would allow him to seize even more control over the country?

And with a revealing new report in the Washington Times, Stockman’s criticism of the Obama administration and his questioning of the president’s actions/inactions take on even greater weight.
The Centers for Disease Control told the incoming Obama administration in 2008 that it should establish 18 regional disease detection centers around the world to adequately safeguard the U.S. from emerging health threats like Ebola, according to an agency memo.
But six years later, as the government struggles to contain the fallout from a deadly Ebola outbreak at home and abroad, the CDC still has only 10 centers — and none of them operates in the western Africa region hardest hit by the deadly virus.
So, Obama reportedly failed to follow the advice of his own agency that’s now struggling to gain the public’s confidence in its handling of the Ebola situation…leading to a possible crisis of confidence?
In an interview with Trunews radio, Congressman Steve Stockman gave host Rick Wiles a frightening possible explanation for why President Obama may have delayed the response to the Ebola crisis and why he appears to many to be dealing with it in a incompetent manner.
