I am surprised how often a perfectly good conspiracy theory could be formulated yet no one in the biz does it. Here are two:
1) The Obama regime is aiding in introducing Ebola to Americans, so there will be more sob stories to use to demand government control of medicine (sort of Fast and Furious part 2) and another wag-the-dog distraction from the other problems the regime is causing.
2) The Obama regime and the powers that be have known about the growth of ISIS and American foreign policy failures for a couple of years. They are flaking these as news stories and policy imperatives now, as we approach an election, to promulgate the meme and paradigm that we need big activist government – and surveillance and limits on the Bill of Rights – to save us in general.
(There are obvious realities that make both of these, especially #2, more complicated. Feel free to reply or elaborate. I am just surprised, as I am monthly, that I haven’t heard these circulated yet. If it paid well I could totally be a conspiracy maven.)
