Dallas News – by Matthew Watkins
The Dallas County Commissioners Court is planning to call a special meeting for Thursday to discuss whether to request that Gov. Rick Perry declare a local emergency because of the Ebola crisis.
The meeting will be at 2 p.m. at the County Administration Building, 411 Elm Street in Dallas.
According to state law, a declaration of emergency “activates the appropriate recovery and rehabilitation aspects of all applicable local or interjurisdictional emergency management plans and authorizes the furnishing of aid and assistance under the declaration.”
In addition, the law says, “the county judge or mayor of a municipality may control ingress to and egress from a disaster area under the jurisdiction and authority of the county judge or mayor and control the movement of persons and the occupancy of premises in that area.”
The declarations last up to seven days, and can be renewed by the Commissioners Court for longer than that. County officials didn’t immediately return calls seeking an explanation. It’s unclear what they will seek to do with the emergency declaration.

One has to wonder if they’ll bring up this report from the University of Minnesota, links to it here:
How about letting us see just ONE genuine Ebola victim before you begin the “state of emergency” nonsense?
And the more ridiculous it gets, the more we know of their plans, and how this Ebola hoax is going to be used. Lock and load, is all I can say. The real fight is about to begin.
For cryin’ out loud,
THERE IS NO EBOLA IN DALLAS!!!! THERE IS NO EBOLA IN DALLAS!!!! THERE IS NO EBOLA IN DALLAS!!!! 😡 😡 😡
Yet these Communist bastards keep on pushing this shit until they have the right (which they never will) to lock and quarantine the whole city down.
Over MY DEAD BODY!!!
F**K THEIR EMERGENCY CRAP!!!
These people in Dallas better wake the hell up and fight back like they did with the immigration housing issue or they are going to find themselves in a FEMA camp real quick.
