The wife of the ebola czar favors a travel ban for…. fisherman, Gotnews.com has learned.
Monica Medina, wife of Ron Klain, is the other half of the DC power couple. Like her husband she’s long been involved in political issues and Democratic politics.
She successfully worked to pressure the Obama administration to ban large parts of the ocean to commercial fishing. Obama announced a ban on commercial fishing within a 782,0000 square miles of U.S. territorial waters. All of the waters here are off limit.

Medina wants to use the U.S. military to enforce the ban and to map the ocean, according to a press release from the left-wing think tank, Center for a New American Security.

Medina loves using the military to save the animals.
Medina, who advised Defense Secretaries Leon Panetta and Chuck Hagel as special assistant, even called for using the U.S. military in Africa to protect wild life from poaching in a Washington Post op-ed.
“If they just apply a little bit of know-how … we could put a real dent” in poaching, said Medina on a panel in 2014. Medina has also worked as a deputy undersecretary at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and served on the International Whaling Commission.
