Ibuprofen Is All It Takes to Avoid Airport Ebola Screening: Experts

"The fever-screening instruments run low and aren't that accurate," said infection control specialist Sean Kaufman, president of Behavioral-Based Improvement Solutions, a biosafety company based in Atlanta. "And people can take ibuprofen to reduce their fever enough to pass screening, and why wouldn't they? If it will get them on a plane so they can come to the United States and get effective treatment after they're exposed to Ebola, wouldn't you do that to save your life?" On Thursday, Liberia said the first Ebola patient to be diagnosed in the United States had lied on a questionnaire at Monrovia's airport about his exposure to an Ebola patient. Thomas Eric Duncan's arrival and hospitalization in Dallas have underscored how much U.S. authorities are relying on their counterparts in West African countries to screen passengers and contain the worst Ebola outbreak on record.

And Now, Ladies an’ Gentlemen: Obama’s ‘War on Ebola’

Now Obama’s advisers, no doubt led by the blood-thirsty National Security Adviser, Susan Rice, have come up with a new war. This is the War Against Ebola. On September 16, President Obama solemnly declared the war. He announced, to the surprise of most sane citizens, that he had ordered 3,000 American troops, the so-called “boots on the ground” that the Pentagon refuses to agree to in Syria, to wage a war against….a virus?

Ebola strikes NBC cameraman

An American working as a freelance cameraman for NBC News has tested positive for Ebola and plans to return to the U.S. for treatment, the news network said late Thursday. The journalist, who wasn't identified by name, was working in Liberia for NBC. A Doctors Without Borders treatment center on Wednesday diagnosed the 33-year-old cameraman, who was said to be "in good spirits" despite carrying the deadly disease. He becomes the fourth U.S. national to contract Ebola, which has killed thousands in West Africa.

Schoolchildren exposed in US Ebola scare: Texas governor Rick Perry reveals fears for kids and says 18 Americans may have virus after hospital sent infected man home

His sister Mai Wureh said her sick brother told officials the first time he went to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital that he was visiting from the West African country in the so-called 'Ebola hot zone' - before he was sent home with antibiotics, a critically missed opportunity to prevent others being exposed to the disease.

Dallas Independent School District Superintendent Mike Miles said on Wednesday the children who came in contact with Mr Duncan are showing no symptoms and are now being monitored at home. As an added precaution, Miles says additional health and custodial staff will be at the high, middle and two elementary schools the students attend.

Mr Duncan's family are among up to 18 people being monitored after exposure to the man along with the ambulance crew who transported him to hospital.

No Obamacare Bailouts for Insurers Without Congressional Approval, Says GAO

y forcing Americans to buy their products, President Obama's signature Affordable Care Act is widely seen as a winning proposition for health insurance companies. Conscripted customers! What more could a well-connected business want? But the law's complex rules require insurers to cover the costs imposed by older and ailing customers with the payments from young and healthy customers. Potentially, a company could end up with a disproportionate ratio of sick customers drawn by the promise of subsidized coverage—drowning the seemingly winning proposition in red ink. If that happens, says the Government Accountability Office (GAO), the administration can't bail out insurers without permission from Congress.

Liberia to prosecute man who brought Ebola to US

Thomas Eric Duncan filled out a series of questions about his health and activities before leaving on his journey to Dallas. On a Sept. 19 form obtained by The Associated Press, he answered no to all of them.

Among other questions, the form asked whether Duncan had cared for an Ebola patient or touched the body of anyone who had died in an area affected by Ebola.

"We expect people to do the honorable thing," said Binyah Kesselly, chairman of the board of directors of the Liberia Airport Authority in Monrovia. The agency took the case to the Ministry of Justice, which will formally prosecute it.

Neighbors in the Liberian capital believe Duncan become infected when he helped bundle a sick pregnant neighbor into a taxi a few weeks ago and set off with her to find treatment.

No Ebola, Says Hawaii Health Department

The Hawaii State Department of Health (DOH) has determined that the individual in isolation at a Honolulu hospital who was reported to the department as a possible Ebola case yesterday does not meet the criteria for testing. The individual is no longer under evaluation for possible Ebola infection.

“The hospital acted in the best interests of the community, with an abundance of caution,” said Health Director Dr. Linda Rosen. “We commend the facility for being prepared and remaining vigilant regarding the risk of Ebola. After investigation by the health department, it was determined that the individual did not meet the clinical or travel exposure criteria for an Ebola infection.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So ... basically they are saying they are not going to bother testing him. I would frankly feel better if they had gone ahead with the test and had it come back negative.

Frankly, this feels like pure political bovine excrement to protect Hawaii's tourism industry. The first reports on this patient indicated that his doctors felt he met the criteria, including travel.

And, claiming that he has not traveled to Ebola infected areas assumes one knows all the places where Ebola is right now, which is impossible. Prior to the first of this week, one would not have seen Dallas or Brussels on the list of locations where Ebola infection is possible.

Now it is being reported that Thomas Duncan lied to authorities in Liberia to board the aircraft, denying he had come in contact with an Ebola patient. The Hawaii State Department of Health is betting the lives of our citizens that the patient at Queen's has been fully truthful.

Top Doctors: Ebola May Become Airborne … And May ALREADY Be Transmissible Via Aerosols

Viruses like Ebola are notoriously sloppy in replicating, meaning the virus entering one person may be genetically different from the virus entering the next. The current Ebola virus’s hyper-evolution is unprecedented; there has been more human-to-human transmission in the past four months than most likely occurred in the last 500 to 1,000 years. Each new infection represents trillions of throws of the genetic dice.

What preppers are doing about Ebola

"Many of us do keep pandemic supplies on hand: things like nitrile gloves, N95 and N100 masks and sanitation supplies. Others who have been aware of the need but who have not yet made the purchases will very likely be on Amazon, ordering the necessary supplies, just in case this does turn into a pandemic."

Health Officials Say More Than 80 People Were Exposed To Texas Ebola Patient

More than 80 people had direct or indirect contact with the first person to be diagnosed with the deadly Ebola virus in the United States, health officials said Thursday, as four members of the patient's family were quarantined as a precaution.

Dallas County officials said 12 to 18 people had direct contact with the Texas patient, and they in turn had contact with scores of others. All were being monitored and none had shown any symptoms.

A top health official urged U.S. hospitals to heed lessons from Dallas, where a hospital initially sent the ailing patient home, despite information that he had recently visited West Africa, potentially exposing more people to the virus.

Texas health officials told four "close" relatives of the patient not to entertain visitors and said they could be arrested if they leave their homes without permission through Oct. 19. The four did not exhibit symptoms, they said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, are these Texas health officials making sure that these people have food delivered to them while they are being monitored, and unable to leave their homes?

That they have been exposed to ebola does not make them any less human than they were before this exposure, and I would like to hope that some compassionate steps are being made to insure their emotional, and physical, well-being during what is obviously a very traumatic time for them.

How Bad Could It Get? US Government Order Of 160,000 HazMat Suits Gives A Clue

Now that Ebola is officially in the US on an uncontrolled basis, the two questions on everyone’s lips are i) who will get sick next and ii) how bad could it get?

We don’t know the answer to question #1 just yet, but when it comes to the second one, a press release three weeks ago from Lakeland Industries, a manufacturer and seller of a “comprehensive line of safety garments and accessories for the industrial protective clothing market” may provide some insight into just how bad the US State Department thinks it may get. Because when the US government buys 160,000 hazmat suits specifically designed against Ebola, just ahead of the worst Ebola epidemic in history making US landfall, one wonders: what do they know the we don’t?

EXCLUSIVE: Gotnews.com Has LEAKED Flight Info of #Ebola Dallas Patient

Thomas Duncan flew from Monrovia (ROB) to Brussels (BRU) on Brussels Airlines flight 1247 (SN1247) which departed ROB on Thurs. Sept. 18 and arrived in BRU early moring Fri. Sept. 19. He did not depart BRU until the next day aboard United Airlines flight (UA951) which arrived at Dulles (IAD) the same day. He had a round-trip ticket, which was purchased on Sept. 2 from an IATA accredited travel agency in Lagos, Nigeria. It appears his ticket was purchased by a company named “Silson Global Business Liberia Ltd.”. His return flight was scheduled to depart Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) on Oct. 19. The return flight was scheduled for DFW-IAD-BRU-FNA (FNA is Lungi Intl Airport in Freetown, Sierra Leone).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, he spent an entire night on the ground in Brussels. That means Ebola could be in the EU capitol. And Duncan changed planes at Dulles, meaning the same for the Washington DC area (I am waiting for Obama to say this is all an eeeeeevil Russian plot). Duncan arrived in Dallas Sept. 20th and made his first visit to the hospital (where he was sent home) on the 26th. Working backwards along the 21 day incubation period it seems reasonable that he was already infected when he boarded the plane in Monrovia on the 18th, having become infected somewhere between Sept. 5th and Sept. 12th..

UN Ebola chief raises 'nightmare' prospect that virus could mutate and become airborne if it is not quickly brought under control

The longer the Ebola epidemic continues infecting people unabated the higher the chances it will mutate and become airborne, the UN's Ebola response chief has warned.

CDC - INTERIM GUIDANCE FOR Specimen Collection, Transport, Testing, and Submission for Patients with Suspected Infection with Ebola Virus Disease

Ebola virus is detected in blood only after the onset of symptoms, usually fever. It may take up to 3 days after symptoms appear for the virus to reach detectable levels. Virus is generally detectable by real-time RT-PCR from 3-10 days after symptoms appear.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So apparently an Ebola patient has to be fully symptomatic for three days before the virus will show up in a test. How very reassuring!

Boy Gets Diagnosed with Autism After 32 Shots

After her first hep B shot, Skylar immediately began to suffer from colic. Up until age one, she would cry every night at the same time for about an hour and a half before she went to sleep. She had horrible night terrors from age 2-4 years before these finally ceased.

When Natalie had Skylar, she had no idea vaccine injuries were prevalent and never thought to question this link. Skylar’s pediatrician said this behavior was normal and led her to believe this is what normal babies go through.

EBOLA: Obama downplays danger from a highly infectious disease

Would Barack Hussein Obama ever lie to the America public?

Why, of course not.

That’s why wise and prudent Americans will keep an eye on the spread of Ebola in the U.S. and take announcements pooh-poohing the risk from Obama regime political appointees with a generous dose of salt.

Here’s what Thomas Frieden, director of US Centers for Disease Control had to say about this bug: “Ebola poses little risk to the U.S. general population,” and that its spread across the U.S. “is not in the cards”.

We certainly hope he’s right, but smart folks would be reluctant to bet their lives on it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 


All jokes aside, the fact is that the US Government blew this one. They were so focused on playing their game of conquer-the-world and wagging a phony terror threat at us that they were oblivious to a real emerging problem. And even now as Ebola emerges here in the United States, the priority of the US Government does not seem to be the health of the population so much as keeping us all working, keeping us paying the bankers, making sure we all max out our credit cards for the coming holiday shopping season, maximizing the financial opportunity for the pharmaceutical corporations (whose generous donations are appreciated in these final weeks before the November mid-terms) and hey, it's not like we needed those people who actually did die anyway! So we are seeing this dual message on the corporate media that we should be in abject fear of a made-up terror threat, but Ebola, which has all but destroyed west African countries, is just no big deal worth getting your knickers in a twist about.

The Mathematics of Ebola Trigger Stark Warnings: Act Now or Regret It

The Eurosurveillance paper, by two researchers from the University of Tokyo and Arizona State University, attempts to derive what the reproductive rate has been in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. (Note for actual epidemiology geeks: The calculation is for the effective reproductive number, pegged to a point in time, hence actually Rt.) They come up with an R of at least 1, and in some cases 2; that is, at certain points, sick persons have caused disease in two others.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Before everyone starts to panic, let's put that R-naught of 2 into perspective. Measles has an R-naught of 12-18. Smallpox and Polio are 6. Flu is between 2 and 3.

Ebola Outbreak: The Latest U.S. Government Lies

We begin with the Public Health Agency of Canada, which once (as recently as August 6) stated on its website that:

“In the laboratory, infection through small-particle aerosols has been demonstrated in primates, and airborne spread among humans is strongly suspected, although it has not yet been conclusively demonstrated (1, 6, 13). The importance of this route of transmission is not clear. Poor hygienic conditions can aid the spread of the virus.”

No more; the “airborne spread among humans is strongly suspected” language has been cleansed:

“In laboratory settings, non-human primates exposed to aerosolized ebolavirus from pigs have become infected, however, airborne transmission has not been demonstrated between non-human primates

Webmaster's Commentary: 

During the Reston Virginia Ebola outbreak (which thankfully only infected monkeys) the contagion spread from the room where the sick monkeys were being kept to a room full of healthy animals, apparently through the air conditioning ducts. This incident forms the core of the book "The Hot Zone" by Richard Preston.

Officials: Second person being monitored for Ebola

Health officials are closely monitoring a possible second Ebola patient who had close contact with the first person to be diagnosed in the U.S., the director of Dallas County's health department said Wednesday.

All who have been in close contact with the man diagnosed are being monitored as a precaution, Zachary Thompson, director of Dallas County Health and Human Services, said in a morning interview with WFAA-TV.

"Let me be real frank to the Dallas County residents: The fact that we have one confirmed case, there may be another case that is a close associate with this particular patient," he said. "So this is real. There should be a concern, but it's contained to the specific family members and close friends at this moment."

FDA threatens three companies with criminal charges for making Ebola treatment claims (but won't test natural substances against Ebola)

FDA and FTC are simply wrong about the law. And during the Ebola Epidemic their actions actively violate the July, 2014 World Health Organization (WHO) pronouncement that, during this crisis, offering even "unproven interventions" is ethical. What is not ethical is the position taken by the FDA and FTC.

Beyond the warning letters, here's the rest of the story the national press isn't reporting

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is getting more and more interesting. The trial of colloidal silver that was proposed in Nigeria was canceled due to political pressure, while the media proclaimed loudly that the treatment could not possibly work.

Meanwhile, a document has surfaced showing that the United States Air Force Research Laboratory has documented not only that colloidal silver is an anti-viral, but the mechanism by which it prevents the Ebola virus from multiplying in the body!

How enlightening to confirm that the FDA, in order to preserve the profits of the pharmaceutical corporations, is willing to allow humans too poor to pay for costly corporate Ebola treatments to die one of the most horrible deaths imaginable!

Top ten things you need to do NOW to protect yourself from an uncontrolled Ebola outbreak

Now that Ebola "patient zero" has been confirmed in the United States, it's clear that Ebola is spreading far beyond the control of any government or health department. Just weeks ago, President Obama promised Ebola wouldn't arrive in the United States, but now it's here.

The CDC is promising that they can keep it all under control for this patient discovered to have carried Ebola into Dallas. But can they also contain the next Ebola patient? How about the one after that? And how does any government contain a viral pandemic that can't be stopped with bullets and bombs?

60 Percent of Voters Want Obamacare to Be Repealed

A new poll finds that three-fifths of likely voters support the repeal of Obamacare. A large plurality — 44 percent — wants to see Obamacare repealed and replaced with a conservative alternative. A much smaller group —16 percent — wants to see it repealed but not replaced. Less than one in three respondents — 32 percent — would like to keep Obamacare, whether in its current form or in amended form. So, with a conservative alternative in play, 60 percent of Americans support repeal, while only 32 percent oppose it.

After first Ebola case, red flags emerge that U.S. unprepared for pandemic

The confirmation Tuesday of the first Ebola case on U.S. soil emerges against a backdrop of increasing concern in America’s medical community that preparedness for a pandemic has stagnated or slipped in recent years because of tough economic times and increasing malaise since the 2001 anthrax threat.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We have a political ruling class comprised mostly of lawyers and money-junkies, who have little if any real knowledge of how to do anything. Couple that with the de-funding of necessary preparedness to support the war and prop up Wall Street and it becomes obvious that the same US Government that botched the 1976 flu epidemic with a vaccine that killed fifty times more people than the flu did, the same government that mishandled Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy, the same government that allowed and then was unable to handle the Gulf Oil disaster, is woefully unprepared to deal with Ebola. On top of that, 80% of the nation no longer believes what the government says, according to a recent NBC/WSJ poll, which means even if the government stumbled onto a solution by blind luck, most people would not listen anyway.

Contained? Dallas Hospital Discharged Sick Ebola Patient 2 Days Before Isolation

While yesterday's CDC press conference was factual, it was clearly very much designed to avoid panic as time and again the US public was reassured that Ebola in America was 'contained', 'hard to contract', and would 'stop here'. However, as Bloomberg reports, the man with Ebola in Dallas was initially sent home from the hospital with antibiotics after seeking treatment for an unknown illness, officials said.

Could polio or other vaccinations be behind the new "polio-like" Illness outbreak in California?

After years of massive administration of polio vaccine, India was declared polio-free and the last reported incidence of polio in India was in January 2011. Although the reported milestone has been widely publicized, what has not been so widely reported is that there were an extra 47,500 new cases in 2011 of the rare illness known as Non-Polio Acute Flaccid Paralysis (NPAFP).

The incidence of NPAFP in India in 2011 was 12 times higher than expected and was found to be directly proportional to doses of oral polio received. Though it may be called "Non-Polio" the symptoms of NPAFP are clinically indistinguishable from polio paralysis and the illness is twice as deadly.

What is 'vaccine spectrum disorder' and why is it called autism?

Vaccine spectrum disorder (VSD) is the disorder children get from receiving too many vaccines too close together, many of which are combinations of viruses, bacteria and toxic adjuvants. VSD is purposely misdiagnosed and renamed autism spectrum disorder so that the vaccine industry can continue with its toxic regimen that creates customers for life. The vaccine schedule is leading to a broad array of disorders and 'spectrum' is just a pharma buzz word to keep the public from staring right at the REAL problem, which is that we are injecting toxins into muscle tissue, including aluminum and mercury, over and over again during the first six years of a child's life.

Vaccine researcher charged with felony crimes for research fraud; may spend 20 years in prison over faked AIDS vaccine

Scientific fraud is so common in the vaccine industry, it's practically the default business model. The truth is that most vaccines don't work, so in order to make them appear to work, researchers routinely spike blood samples of vaccinated test subjects with antibodies, making it appear the vaccine caused the body to produce those antibodies.

This is exactly what Merck does with MMR vaccines, according to the company's own former virologists who filed a False Claims Act with the federal government. It's also why up to 97% of children who contract measles or mumps were already vaccinated against measles and mumps.

You Won’t Believe How Much Money Michelle Obama’s Ridiculous School Lunch Program Wastes On A Daily Basis

According to a WCPO report, Michelle Obama’s new school program is costing American taxpayers $4 million. And that’s not over the course of an entire year. That is how much it is costing American taxpayers on a daily basis. That’s right; $4 million each day.

A whopping 81 percent of schools have seen an increase in the number of lunches that now end up in the trash. The report also “shows that 60 percent of fresh vegetables and 40 percent of fresh fruit are being thrown away.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Would you be comfortable with your doctor's spouse operating on you? How about riding in a passenger jet where the controls were in the hands of the pilot's significant other?

Being the first lady does not mean Michelle is competent at anything (other than her ability to seduce and marry Obama).

Japan Declares Level 3 Emergency, At Least One Dead After Volcano Erupts In Central Japan

When one thinks of Japan and natural disaster, the things that usually come to mind are earthquakes, tsunamis, radioactive lizards, the occasional massive nuclear power plant explosion. Not volcanoes - those are usually delegated to the sole country that dared to give bankers the middle finger, Iceland. And yet, overnight Japan declared a level 3 alert (on a scale of 1 to 5) when a volcano in central Japan erupted, sending ash clouds down the mountain’s slope for more than 3 kilometers. According to RT, at least one person has died and 70 were injured, while aircraft have been forced to divert to avoid the dangerous area. Medics confirmed the death of at least one person, while 70 more were reported to be injured, NHK reported. Thirty of the injured have been sent to hospital in critical condition, health officials added. One can only hope there were no nuclear power plants in the immediate vicinity of the volcano.

EPA knew pesticides were killing honeybees in the 1970s but punished those who spoke out

For decades, top officials at the Environmental Protection Agency (PEA) were aware that a compound approved for agricultural use in the United States was wiping out the honeybee population, but they chose to ignore the compound's effects in deference to pressure from agri-giant corporations.

Worse, the agency reacted harshly to anyone within the EPA who attempted to bring the issue to light, including through firings, forced reassignments and other actions.

According to a scholarly 2014 study [PDF] compiled by researcher Rosemary Mason, "on behalf of a global network of independent scientists, beekeepers and environmentalists," and published on the website of MIT, "We have found historical and chronological evidence to show that the herbicide glyphosate (or other herbicides that are used as alternatives) is responsible for the transformation of garden escapes into super-weeds (in the UK these are termed 'invasive species')."

Four Large Fireball Events over USA

Three of the events, 2306, 2307 & 2308 all occurred within 1.5 hours of each other. It is rare that multiple significant fireball events occur and are reported to the AMS in the same evening. After analysis of the time, proximity of witnesses and pointing data gathered, it was determined that each event was unique. It is likely that several of these fireball events were captured on camera by the NASA fireball network. Trajectories for all four events were plotted and are displayed below.

The recorded trajectories are inconsistent with de-orbiting space debris, so looks like some major rocks came down!

Vaccine wars: the censoring of Rob Schneider

Yesterday, I reported on State Farm dropping Rob Schneider from their TV ads because he’s alerted people to vaccine dangers.

Because he has a view about vaccines that departs from the norm.

“Punch a hole in consensus reality and you can’t be a spokesman for our products.”

“Cause a ripple among the sleeping populace and you’re out.”

What’s next?

Well, I’ll tell you what could be next, based on the fact that the Internet runs via an interlocking system of commercial companies.

Some companies that facilitate emails to large lists, and website hosts, to say nothing of Facebook, which is already censoring information, could decide, under pressure, or voluntarily, to close down “controversial data.”

Photos: Robots and drones - here's what Intel's answer to the Raspberry Pi can do

The maker movement is thriving – with hobbyist technologists across the world packing low-cost computers and sensors into bespoke electronics that fuse art and technology.

The market is dominated by single-board computers and microcontrollers such as Raspberry Pi and Arduino, but new competitors are arriving all the time.

Intel's entry is Edison, a tiny single-board computers, little bigger than a postage stamp, measuring just 3.55 x 2.5 x 0.39cm.

Although it will be compared with the $35 Raspberry Pi model B+, it is designed to work as an embedded Linux board for electronic prototypes and products, rather than as a small-board computer running a full-blown Linux distro.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I love technology when it works, and am old enough that some of the newer advances keep me in awe when I remember what I started with. This new desktop I built easily outpaces the Cray Supercomputers of the 1980s. Of course, back when computers were slow, software had to be efficient, but I have observed that as processors got faster, software companies got lazy, writing bloated, inefficient code, relying on the advances in hardware to keep their products usable.

Obamacare Website Costs Top $2 Billion, Almost Triple Government Estimates

In a double-take-instigating headline, the federal government’s Obamacare enrollment system has cost about $2.1 billion so far, according to a Bloomberg Government analysis of contracts related to the project. BGOV’s analysis shows that costs for both healthcare.gov and the broader reform effort are far greater than anything publicly discussed. However, that pales into insignificance when considering health reform has cost American taxpayers $73 billion in the last four years... and counting.

Accused: The US manufactured Ebola

Webmaster's Commentary:

FLASHBACK 2009 - Ebola vials vanish from Ft. Detrick

Fort Detrick's Inventory Uncovers 9,200 More Pathogens
Inventory Uncovers 9,200 More Pathogens

Laboratory Says Security Is Tighter, but Earlier Count Missed Dangerous Vials

By Nelson Hernandez
Washington Post Staff Writer
Thursday, June 18, 2009

An inventory of potentially deadly pathogens at Fort Detrick's infectious disease laboratory found more than 9,000 vials that had not been accounted for, Army officials said yesterday, raising concerns that officials wouldn't know whether dangerous toxins were missing.

After four months of searching about 335 freezers and refrigerators at the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases in Frederick, investigators found 9,220 samples that hadn't been included in a database of about 66,000 items listed as of February, said Col. Mark Kortepeter, the institute's deputy commander.

National Security Study 200

SUBJECT: Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for U.S. Security and Overseas Interests

The President has directed a study of the impact of world population growth on U.S. security and overseas interests. The study should look forward at least until the year 2000, and use several alternative reasonable projections of population growth.

In terms of each projection, the study should assess:

- the corresponding pace of development, especially in poorer-countries;
- the demand for US exports, especially of food, and the trade-problems the US may face arising from competition for resources; and
- the likelihood that population growth or imbalances will produce disruptive foreign policies and international instability.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As Ebola races across Africa, it appears that the United States Government's attitude towards the crisis is rather lackadaisical at this point. Certainly it is being treated as a lower priority than sheltering the illegal immigrants flooding across the Mexican border (who given enough time, will bring Ebola with them), providing weapons and money to Israel, and trying to provoke a potentially nuclear war with Russia.

The US Government's inaction could be attributed to the fact that the politicians can;t really do anything about it, cannot get votes out of it, and so, like with Fukushima and the Gulf Oil Disaster, their plan is to ignore Ebola and pretend it just is not important.

But there may be another agenda at work; one that dates back to the Nixon Administration. In 1974, Henry Kissenger prepared a study for the President which suggested US Government policy should work for depopulation of the third world, in particular the resource-rich regions, to make those resources available to the US and to prevent the rise of a sufficiently large population able to resist US incursions.

Nixon adopted this policy, but his successor, Gerald Ford, alarmed by scandals involving covert sterilization under the guise of global vaccination programs, ended the policy. Whether it has been revived in secret is not known.

But there is no question that an Ebola epidemic, raging through the very nations the US AFRICOM is seeking ton control, plays right into that agenda of depopulation to reduce nations' ability to resist US control, and that may be the reason the US Government has done little more about the emerging Ebola crisis than flap their gums for the corporate media cameras!

Prop 37 - GM maize 'has polluted rivers across the United States'

An insecticide used in genetically modified (GM) crops grown extensively in the United States and other parts of the world has leached into the water of the surrounding environment.

The insecticide is the product of a bacterial gene inserted into GM maize and other cereal crops to protect them against insects such as the European corn borer beetle. Scientists have detected the insecticide in a significant number of streams draining the great corn belt of the American mid-West.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is another classic example of a new technology sold to the public without thinking it all the way through. The maize plants had a gene added that forced them to produce an insecticide in the entire plant. When the non-crop portion of the plants decompose after harvest, the toxin drains off into streams and rivers where it accumulates, poisoning the environment, including benign and necessary insects which aid pollination of food crops.

And again, we expect corporations to stop all thinking once the product is paid for, but the US Government justifies its control over our lives and the pillaging of our wealth with thew promise that it will exercise oversight on potentially dangerous behaviors of corporations, such as when the SEC was supposed to keep an eye on Bernie Madoff (but didn't), the Bureau of Mine Safety was supposed to keep the mines from caving in (they didn't) and the MMS was supposed to make sure oil drilling didn't pose a hazard to the nation (they didn't do that either). In this case, with genetic engineering being the most dangerous technology to be allowed into the wild, proper oversight should have been exercised to consider what happens to the environment when the product ends its useful life and breaks free into the wild, such as the transfer of the "Roundup Ready" gene from food crops into Pigweed. Once again we are looking at a total failure of the US Government to protect the interests of ordinary Americans.

Oaksterdam University Raid 'Payback' For California's Marijuana Legalization Effort?

The man who bankrolled California's closest shot yet at fully legalizing marijuana, Prop. 19, saw his Oaksterdam University cannabis college in Oakland raided by federal authorities yesterday.
And pot advocates are fuming.

The Drug Policy Alliance suggests the raid by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and Internal Revenue Service might have served one possible goal:
"Payback" for the 2010 legalization effort that failed but made a good try of it. The ballot effort was backed by Richard Lee, the millionaire owner of Oaksterdam.

A Marijuana Bud A Day Keeps The Stroke Away

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As it turns out, the claim that an aspirin a day helps avoid a heart attack is not true. It helps only if you are already recovering from a heart attack, but does nothing for people who are healthy (although it obviously brings huge profits to the aspirin companies). Now a recent peer-reviewed study showed that daily aspirin increases the occurrence of certain cancers. Thanks to the snake-oil salesmen for THAT one!

So now it turns out that smoking Marijuana (illegal) might actually be better for your heart than aspirin (legal and taxable).

As a side note, we all known that alcohol (legal and taxable) destroys brain cells while smoking Marijuana (illegal) has been shown in laboratory tests to stimulate the growth of new brain cells, illustrated when Cheech Marin, a lifelong admitted pot smoker, trounced the straight-laced Anderson Cooper in Celebrity Jeopardy.

So why is Marijuana illegal? Because when you grow it in your back yard you don;t pay tax on it, and a population of people smoking marijuana, growing their brains, and getting smarter is of no use at all to the money-junkies, who prefer you so brain dead you cannot see the Wall Street frauds or challenge the lies used to send your children to war.

GM Enviro-Pig Won't Go To Market; On To Humanely Solving an Environmental Problem

Heather Callaghan
Activist Post

Last year, the media was buzzing about the possibility of Enviro-pig entering the American and Canadian food markets.

The way our regulatory agencies work is to keep pending approvals for genetically modified animals on file, in secret, until a decision determines if it's suddenly in the stores unlabeled, or no, not yet.

Enviro-pig is a creation from Canada's University of Guelph scientists and hog industry Ontario Pork. Birthed in 1999, with 10 generations since. The DNA of Yorkshire pigs were spliced with DNA from e.coli for phosphorous digestion and mice DNA to promote the e.coli gene. The pigs' make-up was changed to allow the enzyme phytase in their saliva to cut the phosphorous in their manure by about 30 percent.

Man Arrested for Tainting Food with Mercury as Government, Corporations Go Free

Is tainting food with mercury a crime? Apparently only if you’re a citizens and not a major corporation or a United States government agency. One retired pharmacist was rightfully arrested after contaminating cafeteria food with heavily toxic mercury, yet no action has been taken against processed food manufacturers whose products are known to contain mercury. Nor has action been taken against the FDA, the organization that sits idly by as consumers continue to eat mercury-laden processed foods that make up on average about 90% of the US food supply.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The FDA should be fired, en masse, for doing absolutely nothing about this. But again, as has been demonstrated an amazing number of times, corporate agribusiness profit trumps the health and well-being of America's citizens every time.

The challenge came after President Obama cautioned the Supreme Court against overturning the health care law and warned that such an act would be “unprecedented.”

Million-year-old ash hints at origins of cooking

Ash found in a South African cave hints that humans were cooking with fire one million years ago.

The discovery is the earliest evidence yet found for use of this revolutionary technology, say the researchers behind the finding. But some experts caution that more proof is needed before we conclude that humans were cooking regularly at this date.

It is not possible to say for certain which species of hominin inhabited the cave one million years ago, but the team believes it was probably Homo erectus.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A million years. It boggles the mind to think of how much history happened that is lost to memory. Around 70,000 years ago the human population shrank to less than 15,000 individuals following the Toba supervolcano. We know that a great cataclysm happened 12,000 years ago when an asteroid struck somewhere in the north American area, wiping out the Clovis people and large fauna. Given how fast human civilization and culture has developed since the last great asteroid strike, it seems difficult to accept that similar progress did not happen in earlier times, with subsequent ice ages grinding all traces of those earlier civilizations to dust.

78 percent increase in autism rates over past decade coincides with new vaccination schedules

The rate of autism among American children has nearly doubled over the past decade, according to a new report released by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), jumping from about one in 150 children back in 2000 to about one in 88 children in 2008, which is the last time official estimates were calculated. And interestingly, this steady rise in autism rates coincides directly with CDC-endorsed vaccination schedules that have also risen sharply since the 1980s.

Age 10 the ‘New Norm’ for Puberty in Girls Thanks to Chemicals Like BPA

Toxic BPA is featured in the vast majority of plastics used commercially today. This chemical has the property of mimicking estrogen when leeched into the body. The delicate hormonal balance in the developing human body is being offset by the introduction of BPA and other chemicals into an average child’s life. Nearly out of the womb, children who are given plastic toys, pacifiers or bottles all come under the influence of this hormone disruption incredibly early.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Of course, with a government which actually cared, at least a little, for the health of its citizens, this chemical would be banned in this country.

However, that is not the case in the USA. As reported here:

http://switchboard.nrdc.org/blogs/gsolomon/fda_to_consumers_were_still...

FDA is kicking the BPA-lined can further down the road in an announcement today that the Agency plans to keep studying this issue while consumers continue to be exposed. Specifically, the Agency's response to NRDC's petition is: "FDA has determined, as a matter of science and regulatory policy, that the best course of action at this time is to continue our review and study of emerging data on BPA."

Simple translation: the BPA manufacturers won, and US consumers lost, big time.

The best thing you can do is educate yourself about which products still contain this chemical, and to avoid them like the plague.

Monsanto’s GMO Seeds Contributing to Farmer Suicides Every 30 Minutes

In what has been called the single largest wave of recorded suicides in human history, Indian farmers are now killing themselves in record numbers. It has been extensively reported, even in mainstream news, but nothing has been done about the issue. The cause? Monsanto’s cost-inflated and ineffective seeds have been driving farmers to suicide, and is considered to be one of the largest — if not the largest — cause of the quarter of a million farmer suicides over the past 16 years.

With the increase in solar flares and expert warnings over the threat of asteroids, volcanoes, and earthquakes, it’s understandable to be concerned about the future of the earth and mankind alike.

What many experts and publications are forgetting, however, is that these disasters may actually be less threatening than the harm being placed on our own bodies.

One hundred guards for 1,200 archaeological sites in southern Iraqi province

Israel routinely exploits archaeology for political purposes, to justify its "ownership" of the holy lands. It hypes its own antiquities (often frauds), while destroying artifacts from history viewed as a political threat. One of the great crimes committed against the people of Iraq was the looting of the Baghdad Museum and the destruction of many important ancient sites inside Iraq.

And more to the point, I think that destruction of ancient sites in Iraq is deliberate policy.

Egypt is literally littered with the ruins of the ancient temples and palaces of her rulers. As much as has been found, it is estimated that only 1/3 of Egypt's archeological wonders have been uncovered. A newly discovered temple was uncovered while digging a sewer line, and a cache of finely preserved mummies was literally stumbled over by a cow in a pasture.
