What the US Govt says and does are two completely different things, regularly!
According to Natural News, one of those to call for a travel ban on all flights from the West African regions was Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, a Republican and potential GOP presidential contender in 2016. As reported by Politico, Jindal said, in a statement:
“We should stop accepting flights from countries that are Ebola stricken. President Obama said it was ‘unlikely’ that Ebola would reach the U.S. Well, it has, and we need to protect our people. But the Obama administration keeps saying they won’t shut down flights. They instead say we should listen to ‘the experts.’ In fact, they said it would be counterproductive to stop these flights. That statement defies logic. How exactly would stopping the entry of people potentially carrying the Ebola virus be counterproductive? This seems to be an obvious step to protect public health in the United States.”
It seems that it is easier to get to the U.S. these days from an Ebola-stricken West African country than it is to bring a dog or a cat into the country. In particular, the CDC lays out these requirements: “Dogs imported to the U.S. must be ‘healthy’ and ‘vaccinated against rabies.'”
“Dogs may be denied entry if they look like they are sick with a communicable disease or if proof of a valid rabies vaccination is not provided,” says the CDC website. “If a dog appears to be sick at the port of entry, further examination by a licensed veterinarian at the dog owner’s expense might be required.”
Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) has additional hoops that you must jump through before any animals or pets can be brought into the country:
“Travelers frequently inquire about taking their pets with them to the United States. All such imports are subject to health, quarantine, agriculture, or wildlife requirements and prohibitions. Pets taken out of the United States and returned are subject to the same requirements as those entering for the first time.”

Under an executive order signed by President Obama in 2012, the U.S. federal government now has the authority to seize and shut down all private websites which do not promote vaccines and pharmaceuticals during the coming Ebola pandemic that the government expects to sweep across America.
In response to the signing of the order, the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) issued this information:
“The White House has released a new Executive Order seeking to ensure the continuity of government communications during a national emergency. The Executive Order grants new powers to the Department of Homeland Security, including the ability to collect certain public communications information. Under the Executive Order the White House has also granted the Department the authority to seize private facilities when necessary, effectively shutting down or limiting civilian communications.
