In California, Consumer Watchdog's Prop 45 Challenges Obamacare — From the Left

Blue Shield of California, one of the state's four major health insurers, has a sales office on the 20th floor of the Pacific Corporate Towers in El Segundo. Had the employees peered down to the plaza on a recent Tuesday morning, they would have seen a small cluster of picketers.

From 300 feet up, it would be impossible to read the signs, or hear the chants, or smell the aroma drifting off the white pickup truck that was parked below in a loading zone. But on the ground, the scent is unmistakable: manure.

Jamie Court, the president of Consumer Watchdog, shovels some into a wheelbarrow and announces that he will be delivering it to Blue Shield's executives.

"We're gonna give them back what they've been giving us for the last five months," he tells a row of news cameras. "We're not buying their bull."

Virgin Galactic's SpaceShipTwo Crashes During Flight Test

Virgin Galactic said its SpaceShipTwo rocket plane suffered an "in-flight anomaly" during a powered test flight on Friday that resulted in the loss of the aircraft.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I guess "exploded and blown to smithereens" is not considered appropriate public relations.

I don't mean to be flip, but I heard "anomaly" used a lot at NASA as the description for something that had just rekitted itself into a smoking hole in the ground. NASA used that word following the explosion of Challenger.

Gizmodo is reporting that this flight was the first test of an improved fuel. Burt Rutan is a genius at aviation design, but these things do happen when you are on the cutting edge.

UPDATE: One pilot dead, the other seriously injured.

Judge enforces [then rejects] Ebola isolation of defiant Maine nurse

A judge on Friday ordered an American nurse who treated Ebola patients in Sierra Leone for the disease to obey a state-imposed quarantine after she defied Maine officials and went for a bike ride.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

UPDATE: The corporate media are now reporting that the same judge REJECTED quarantine for the nurse! The nurse, who already defied a previous quarantine to go on a bike ride in full view of the media, is on the honor system to keep herself three feet away from other people while waiting for further court hearings.

Here are the facts. Kaci Hickox's roommate in Africa tested positive for Ebola. As of the 29th of October, even the CDC was saying that close proximity to an Ebola patient was legitimate grounds for the restriction of movement. Kaci is just 11 days into the 21-day quarantine period (and remember that some researchers are saying that the incubation period for this strain can be as long as 42 days). The approved test for Ebola has a record for false-negatives, and 13% of the people that have Ebola do not display symptoms. Even CDC is now admitting Ebola can be transmitted through sneezes, with MIT saying the range of such sneezes is 20 feet, and through secretions left on surfaces such as counter tops and doorknobs.

Everyone is still treating this as a political issue, making their decisions based on economics, public relations, and making sure the voters show up at the polls next Tuesday. They are NOT making their choices based on the science. And that, far more than the Ebola itself, scares me!

Local GMO Fights Smash Records as Monsanto's Millions Bankroll Opposition

As voters in Oregon, California, Hawaii and Colorado prepare to weigh in on whether genetically modified organisms, or GMOs, should be banned or regulated in their states or communities, grassroots campaigns are being overwhelmed by millions that agrochemical and food industry titans are pouring in to defeat such measures.

Monsanto alone spent roughly $14 million in various local races this election year.

Court orders movement restrictions on Maine nurse over Ebola fears

A District Court judge in Maine has authorized an order restricting the movements of a nurse who recently returned to the area from West Africa over fears that she might spread the deadly Ebola virus.

In response to a request filed earlier this week by state officials, District Court Chief Judge Charles LaVerdiere wrote that the nurse, Kaci Hickox, must stay at least three feet away from all other persons effective Friday, as well as adhere to a half-dozen other restrictions pending further instruction expected to come in the next 10 days.

Industrial-strength scare-propaganda: mind control

On July 26, 2000, the Journal of the American Medical Association published Dr. Barbara Starfield’s review, “Is US health really the best in the world?”

In it, Starfield, who was a respected public health expert working at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, stated that:

* The US medical system kills 225,000 Americans a year.

* 106,000 deaths per year from FDA-approved medical drugs.

* 119,000 deaths per year from error-ridden treatment in hospitals.

Why It's OK To Worry About Ebola, And What's Truly Scary

The people who are trying to say stop worrying about Ebola in New York, stop worrying about Ebola at Newark airport, what they're trying to do is lose the teachable moment. If they succeed in getting people to stop worrying, they will regret it, because there's a lot to worry about it.

Calming us down shouldn't be a goal. It would be different if people were panicking in the street.

But the evidence doesn't say that say people are unreasonably, dangerously upset. They're sometimes worried about the right things more than the experts are.

CDC Expands Ebola Risk Factors For Forcible Quarantine

Previously the CDC outlined how, “Brief interactions, such as walking by a person or moving through a hospital, do not constitute close contact.” However, the new guidelines state that “brief proximity,” or “being in the same room for a brief period of time” with an Ebola victim now constitutes enough of a risk factor for consideration of mandatory quarantine.

Louisiana tells anyone who's been exposed to Ebola: Stay away

Louisiana is set to host one of the year’s biggest gatherings of infectious disease experts next week, but anyone's who's recently been to West Africa won’t be welcome.

A pair of top state officials wrote a letter to the more than 3,500 members of the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene who planned to attend the conference this week, warning them to stay away if they’ve had potential Ebola exposure.

Supplements under attack again! Dangerous lawsuit threatens the few supplement health claims currently allowed

Earlier this month we told you about international pharmaceutical company Bayer AG's battle with the Federal Trade Commission over whether its marketing statements about its probiotic colon supplement are unsubstantiated disease claims (not allowed) orstructure/function claims (allowed). This week, the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) filed a class action lawsuit in federal court against Bayer because of its "false claims on ads and labels" for its One A Day Vitamins. The group is asking for an injunction against specific marketing statements, and seeking refunds to consumers.

CDC: U.S.Guidance for Monitoring and Movement of Persons with Potential Ebola Virus Exposure

With the complex nature and seriousness of the outbreak, CDC has created interim guidance for monitoring people potentially exposed to Ebola and for evaluating their intended travel, including the application of movement restrictions when indicated.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Without using the politically loaded word "Quarantine", even the CDC is now admitting as of October 29th that it is reasonable to "control the movements" of people potentially exposed to the Ebola virus.

Talks With Ebola Nurse Kaci Hickox Fail, Governor to Use 'Full Authority'

Negotiations with nurse Kaci Hickox, who refuses to be quarantined after treating Ebola patients in West Africa, have "failed" and the governor of Maine will now "exercise the full extent of his authority," according to a statement from the governor's office.

Gov. Paul LePage didn't say whether that meant getting a court order to enforce Hickox's quarantine or forcing her to take an Ebola blood test. Earlier today, LePage indicated to ABC News that he would abandon his demand that Hickox remain under quarantine if she would agree to take a blood test for the lethal virus.

"I was ready and willing -- and remain ready and willing -- to reasonably address the needs of healthcare workers meeting guidelines to assure the public health is protected," LePage said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is all staged public relations. Kaci Hickox has now been revealed as a trained "Intelligence Operative" for the CDC, and is the centerpiece in the administration's efforts to prevent the state governments from taking precautions against Ebola. Obama is still thinking about keeping the airlines happy, keeping the shoppers headed to the malls, and making sure they show up at the rigged voting booths next Tuesday. This despite the CDC's admission that the "direct contact only" story was (to be polite) flat-out wrong and Ebola can be transmitted by aerosols, according to MIT, as far as 20 feet, and survive on surfaces for days. Obama is recklessly gambling with the lives of Americans for political and economic gain.

WTO Says U.S. Consumers Don’t Need to Know Where Meat Comes From

This week, the World Trade Organization (WTO) finally issued a decision in the challenge made by Mexico and Canada to the U.S.’s country-of-origin (COOL) labeling rules for meat. And environmental and food safety groups are hopping mad, as WTO upheld the contention made by those countries, supported by multi0national meat packers, that the rules unfairly impede global trade.

“The meatpacking lobby has lost the COOL debate from the court of public opinion to the Court of Appeals to the halls of Congress so they are taking their complaint to the faceless unelected bureaucrats in Geneva,” said Wenonah Hauter, executive director of Food & Water Watch. “When the meat cannot get its way here in America, it is trying to use the WTO to overturn the will of the American people.”

Anti-quarantine nurse Hickox was trained as intelligence officer by the CDC

Nurse Kaci Hickox, who has made headlines over the last few days by refusing to quarantine herself after returning from the Ebola front lines in Africa, turns out to have been trained as an "intelligence officer" under a two-year CDC program modeled after the U.S. military.

As you can see from the document below, Hickox graduated from a two-year CDC intelligence officer training program in 2012. This is the same nurse whose LinkedIn page was recently scrubbed to hide her ties to the CDC, an agency that stands to benefit tremendously in both political power and budgets if an Ebola outbreak sweeps across America.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is not the first time serious questions have been raised about CDC's "Intelligence Officers", who operate primarily as information warfare specialists, including attacks on those who question the safety and efficacy of vaccines!

FLASHBACK 2010 - WHO scandal exposed: Advisors received kickbacks from H1N1 vaccine manufacturers

A stunning new report reveals that top scientists who convinced the World Health Organization (WHO) to declare H1N1 a global pandemic held close financial ties to the drug companies that profited from the sale of those vaccines. This report, published in the British Medical Journal, exposes the hidden ties that drove WHO to declare a pandemic, resulting in billions of dollars in profits for vaccine manufacturers.

Several key advisors who urged WHO to declare a pandemic received direct financial compensation from the very same vaccine manufacturers who received a windfall of profits from the pandemic announcement. During all this, WHO refused to disclose any conflicts of interests between its top advisors and the drug companies who would financially benefit from its decisions.

Iran says foils bid to sabotage nuclear heavy-water tanks

Iran has foiled an attempt to sabotage tanks used for transporting heavy water, which is needed to run some nuclear reactors, and blames a "foreign country" for the incident, a senior official was quoted by local media as saying.

The Islamic Republic is at odds with the West over suspicions it is covertly using its declared civilian atomic energy programme to develop a nuclear arms capability. It denies this and has repeatedly accused certain Western states of trying to cripple the programme through acts of sabotage.

CDC admits droplets from a sneeze could spread Ebola

Ebola is a lot easier to catch than health officials have admitted — and can be contracted by contact with a doorknob contaminated by a sneeze from an infected person an hour or more before, experts told The Post Tuesday.

“If you are sniffling and sneezing, you produce microorganisms that can get on stuff in a room. If people touch them, they could be” infected, said Dr. Meryl Nass, of the Institute for Public Accuracy in Washington, DC.

AP IMPACT: US Health Care Unprepared for Ebola

The U.S. health care apparatus is so unprepared and short on resources to deal with the deadly Ebola virus that even small clusters of cases could overwhelm parts of the system, according to an Associated Press review of readiness at hospitals and other components of the emergency medical network.

Experts broadly agree that a widespread nationwide outbreak is extremely unlikely, but they also concur that it is impossible to predict with certainty, since previous Ebola epidemics have been confined to remote areas of Africa. And Ebola is not the only possible danger that causes concern; experts say other deadly infectious diseases — ranging from airborne viruses such as SARS, to an unforeseen new strain of the flu, to more exotic plagues like Lassa fever — could crash the health care system.

Delaware State monitoring 11 who returned from West Africa

State health officials said Wednesday that 11 Delawareans who recently returned from Ebola-affected West African countries are being monitored by the Delaware Division of Public Health.

These individuals are considered "low-risk," which means they did not come into contact with any Ebola-infected patients abroad.

But health officials say that they are taking extra precautions to ensure that no symptoms will progress.

Definition of Medical Billing Fraud

Medical billing fraud is a big problem in the United States. It costs the American health care industry billions of dollars each year. The trickle-down effect is the insurer passing down the higher costs to the insured through elevated premiums and deductibles. This type of fraud, like many others, can be difficult to prove

Fraud has become the standard mode of business in the United States!

Always (Always!) Double-Check Your Medical Bills

This past November, my wife had to see a doctor at our local Urgent Care. Unfortunately, when the bill showed up the claim had been denied. The reason? Out of network. The problem? It wasn’t out of network! It’s supposed to be a $20 co-pay with the rest going to insurance. So… I called the Urgent Care billing office on December 15th. They confirmed that it should’ve been covered, and promised to re-submit the claim. Fast forward to this week…

We just got another bill from Urgent Care. Same deal — they want the full balance. This time, however, it seems that our insurance company decided to split the difference and apply it to our deductible instead of flat-out denying the claim, or paying it like they’re supposed to. When I called the Urgent Care billing office, they weren’t sure what went wrong, but promised to re-file the claim. Again.

Hugger-in-Chief

Nina Pham, the first person to be infected with Ebola within the United States, had just been declared disease-free and discharged from the National Institutes of Health. Obama is a rational, science-friendly guy, so he knew she wasn’t any danger to him. It didn’t take courage to hug her.

And yet, another modern president failed a similar test. Facing the greatest public health crisis of his administration, Ronald Reagan was not heroic. He was a dithering coward.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Pure political bovine excrement. Obama hugs a healthy woman and Slate declares him morally superior to Ronald Reagan on that one point alone. Given how quickly Nina went from "got Ebola" to "Ebola free", especially in light of research papers saying recovered people can still pass along the disease for weeks after they recover, I am starting to wonder if Nina ever really had it to start with, or is just another "Wag the Ebola" hoax to keep us all flooding the shopping malls for the Christmas shopping season and make sure we show up at the voting booths next week. Because has I been part of the President's protective detail, under no circumstances would I have allowed him in the same room with Nine, let alone a hug for the cameras.

Parents ‘horrified’ after botched vaccination exposes six-year-old B.C. girl to HIV

A six-year-old girl is in danger of having contacted HIV after a routine vaccination went awry in Fort St. James earlier this month.

When the little girl’s arm flinched as she was getting the booster shot, the needle went through the girl’s skin and pricked the nurse who was administering it.

When the needle was extracted, their blood mixed.

Big Pharma seeks legal immunity for damages from experimental Ebola vaccines

Insurance Companies Begin Writing ‘Ebola Exclusions’ into Policies

Remember the promise of universal health care with Obamacare, with no refusal for ‘pre-existing conditions’? It looks like your insurance company may not have to cover you if you get Ebola. U.S. and British insurance companies have begun writing Ebola exclusions into standard policies to cover hospitals, event organizers, and other businesses vulnerable to local disruptions.

While it is estimated that expenditures to treat the original Dallas Ebola patient, Thomas Eric Duncan, were approximately $100,000 an hour (though he passed anyway), it looks like insurance companies won’t be footing the bill.

Nurse Kaci Hickox says she won't obey Maine's Ebola quarantine: I won’t be 'bullied by politicians'

“I don’t plan on sticking to the guidelines. I remain appalled by these home quarantine policies that have been forced upon me, even though I am in perfectly good health and feeling strong and have been this entire time completely symptom free,” said Hickox, who wouldn’t emerge from Maine’s 21-day voluntary quarantine until Nov. 10.

“I truly believe this policy is not scientifically nor constitutionally just, and so I’m not going to sit around and be bullied around by politicians and be forced to stay in my home when I am not a risk to the American public.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

They are still playing politics with Ebola. Hickox is an Obama supporter and linked to CDC, which also opposes the quaranteens. When Cliven Bundy says he won't allow the government to act unconstitutionally he is crushed, but Hickox is being presented as some kind or heroine!

Vaccine Pioneer Doctor Admits Polio Vaccine Caused Cancer

In 2002, the journal Lancet published compelling evidence that contaminated polio vaccine was responsible for up to half of the 55,000 non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma cases that were occurring each year.

What was it contaminated with?

SV40, a cancer-causing monkey virus. The puzzle began in 1994, when Dr. Michele Carbone, a Loyola University researcher, found the virus SV40, which had never before been detected in humans, in half of the human lung tumors he was studying. Since then, 60 different lab studies have confirmed the results, and SV40 has been found in a variety of human cancers, including lung-, brain-, bone-, and lymphatic cancer.

At first no one could fathom how the virus had been transmitted into the human population.

But in the censored interview with Dr. Maurice Hilleman (below), Hilleman admits Merck’s responsibility in unleashing this virus via their polio vaccine, as well as the likelihood that there was an importing and spreading the AIDS virus in the same manner.

Ebola Nurse’s Ties to CDC Scrubbed From Website – Is Far Left Progressive & Obama Supporter

Kaci Hickox, the nurse who was quarantined in New Jersey over her high risk status as a possible Ebola carrier, has ties to the CDC which have been deliberately hidden by the mainstream media.

Right now, a war is waging between states like New Jersey, New York and Illinois — which have all decided to quarantine travelers at high risk of Ebola infections — and the federal government which is adamantly opposed to border security, medical quarantines and travel bans.

Kaci Hickox emerged in the center of this debate just yesterday when she complained of being “interrogated” and held in violation of her civil rights. Kaci’s LinkedIn.com profile, which described her links to the CDC, was scrubbed from the web earlier today, and even Google cache has strangely been cleared of her profile which previously detailed her ties to the CDC.

Yet, it would have been the growth in city population (i.e., urbanization) that had to have been one of the leading causes for why so many died of the Spanish Flu.

10 Common Medical Billing Overcharges You Can Prevent

From surgery costs, to administrative fees, to equipment charges, hospitals and clinics routinely overcharge their patients for services both big and small. The medical principle of “first, do no harm” sometimes seems to have gone out the window completely.

Scott Pelley: He was intubated.

John Mulligan: He was intubated.

Scott Pelley: Tube down his throat?

John Mulligan: Tube down his throat. He had a dialysis catheter placed because he was not making any urine, but he needed to. He was heavily sedated and he had tears running down his eyes, rolling down his face, not just normal watering from a sedated person. This was in the form of tears. And I grabbed a tissue and I wiped his eyes and I said, "You're going to be okay. You just get the rest that you need. Let us do the rest for you." And it wasn't 15 minutes later I couldn't find a pulse. And I lost him. And it was the worst day of my life. This man that we cared for, that fought just as hard with us, lost his fight.

*emphasis added.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Saturday was October 4th, the day Israeli media said Duncan died. Duncan's death was not announced to the US public until 4 days later on October 8th. So already we know the facts about Ebola are being "managed."

UPDATE: Shortly after this post, CBS altered the transcript at their website to obfuscate just when Duncan died (shades of Winston Smith) but as the video linked above proves, the nursee did indicate that Duncan dies on the 4th, the very day the Israel National News reported it. According to the US media, Duncan died on the 8th. So regardless of any other information, we know that Ebola is being "wagged".

During tests, the UK’s Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL) found that the Zaire strain will live on samples stored on glass at low temperatures for as long as 50 days.

Second Seattle-area school shooting victim dies after homecoming prince took aim at his friends, family

Days after the tragedy, questions remain about what led Jaylen Fryberg to turn on his friends and family in his high school cafeteria, days after the group went to homecoming together.

“Only God knows what escalated this. Only God knows. Nobody pushed a button with bullying. It’s just something that happened, and we don’t know why,” Nate Hatch’s grandfather Don Hatch told KOMO.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Was Fryberg on prescription psychiatric medication? The vast majority of mass shooters are either on or withdrawing from those medications, which have a long history of triggering unexplained violent or suicidal behavior in those who take them.

Bellevue staffers call in ‘sick’ after Ebola arrives

An extraordinary number of Bellevue Hospital staffers called in sick on Friday rather than treat the city’s first Ebola patient — and those who showed up were terrified to enter his isolation chamber, sources told The Post.

“The nurses on the floor are miserable with a ‘why me?’ attitude, scared to death and overworked because all their co-workers called out sick,” one source said.

“One nurse even went as far as to pretend she was having a stroke to get out of working there, but once they cleared her in the ER they sent her back up,” the source added.

CDC: 21-Day Monitoring For All Coming From Ebola Nations

Significantly expanding their vigilance, federal health officials said Wednesday that they would begin monitoring all travelers, even Americans, who come to the U.S. from Ebola-stricken West African nations for 21 days.

The director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said the program will begin Monday, Oct. 27 and cover visitors as well as aid workers, journalists and other Americans returning from Liberia, Sierra Leone or Guinea.

Thousands More US Troops Headed to Liberia to Fight Ebola

Thousands of additional US troops are heading to Liberia, according to commander Major General Gary Volesky, the lead of the ongoing war on Ebola in western Africa.

Volesky praised the “great team” of troops being sent to Liberia, and vowed that the forces would “stamp out Ebola” across the region. The initially stated “war goal” was to build 17 treatment units in Liberia for the large number of Ebola patients.

The treatment units are supposed to be completed by December, but the latest indications are that the US military involvement there will not end with this construction.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

THOUSANDS of US troops, rather than trained medical professionals?!?

Forgive me, but this feels more like a military invasion rather than a medical, humanitarian measure.

And as Africareport.com reported in February of this year:

While oil could potentially accelerate the country's development, Liberians also remember that mismanagement of its forestry, gold and diamonds resources was one of the causes of the last war. When Liberia's 14-year civil war was ending 10 years ago, citizens desperately wanted to live in a country where children could go to school safely, women are not molested, traders travel between cities, and so on. Today, with those goals mostly met, the country faces another challenge: that of how managing its abundant natural resources, particularly oil that was discovered in 2010.

The eradication of ebola may well be the "good reason" for this abundance of American troops over trained medical professionals on this deployment; however, it is hard to believe that the embarrassment of riches in Liberia's oil wealth is not perhaps the "real reason", and the relative ease of producing it, which has generated this "invasion".

Lethal experimental infections of rhesus monkeys by aerosolized Ebola virus.

The potential of aerogenic infection by Ebola virus was established by using a head-only exposure aerosol system. Virus-containing droplets of 0.8-1.2 microns were generated and administered into the respiratory tract of rhesus monkeys via inhalation. Inhalation of viral doses as low as 400 plaque-forming units of virus caused a rapidly fatal disease in 4-5 days.

GMOs may be to Blame for Spike in Kids Suffering from Inflammatory Bowel Disease

One of the largest studies to date conducted by researchers from the University Hospitals Case Medical Center (UH) Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital has found a dramatic increase in inflammatory bowel conditions (IBD) in children in the U.S. in the last decade, likely due to eating GMOs.

While the incidence of IBD has caused many hospitalizations, the reasons behind the disease are unclear, except for one culprit – the consumption of genetically modified ingredients. This, mostly from school lunches, eating processed GMO foods at home, and at restaurants. The complete study can be found online in the Journal of Investigative Medicine.

There has been a 65% increase in IBD hospital discharges from 2000 to 2009. The number increased from 11,928 discharges in 2000 to 19,568 discharges in 2009.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Natural, non-GMO food is always preferable to that contaminated with GMO.

Powerful X-Class Solar Flares Hit Earth, Cause Radio Blackouts

The sun has a myriad of effects on Earth during intense solar activity. When a flare erupts in the lower solar corona, the radiation generated can cause extreme ionization in the upper atmosphere, interfering with the propagation of high-frequency radio waves, meddling with global communications. Signals from global positioning satellites (GPS) can be interrupted, air traffic communications can get patchy and the interference can even be measured by amateur radio operators.

Syngenta Facing Legal Blitz Over Genetically Modified Corn

An unusual cluster of legal filings in recent weeks has capped a tumultuous year for the Swiss biotechnology giant Syngenta Corp., and highlights ongoing concerns over the inability of the United States to keep genetically modified crops separate from conventional crops.

This month, three class action proposals were filed on behalf of farmers in Illinois, Iowa and Nebraska, with the potential to include almost anyone who grew or sold corn commercially across the country over the past year. The moves came just weeks after similar lawsuits were filed by two of the country’s largest grain exporters, Cargill and Trans Coastal Supply.

All of these legal actions revolve around genetically modified corn hybrids that Syngenta began selling in 2009. While those products have been approved for general use in the U.S., they have not been approved in China, and there is no formal indication as to whether they will be.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good.

Every consumer on the planet deserves to know if what they are buying at the store is genetically modified, or not.

Given the choice, I would not chose anything genetically modified, because the longer term studies show, without question, the harm these GMO products can do over time.

Under Pressure, Cuomo Says Ebola Quarantines Can Be Spent at Home

Facing fierce resistance from the White House and medical experts to a strict new mandatory quarantine policy, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said on Sunday night that medical workers who had contact with Ebola patients in West Africa but did not show symptoms of the disease would be allowed to remain at home and would receive compensation for lost income.

Quarantined Nurse Kaci Hickox Is A Rabid Leftist And CDC Employee

Here’s where the story gets ever-so interesting. According to Got News correspondent Charles C. Johnson, nurse Kaci Hickox “is an employee for the Centers for Disease Control and a registered Democrat with a history of left-wing advocacy”:

Initially turned down for Doctors Without Borders, Hickox applied for a position with the Centers for Disease Control’s infectious disease unit. She received that position and began a two-year fellowship in Las Vegas, NV where she currently still works.

Furthermore, this delightful nurse once wrote a piece in which she “advocated against policies that would have developed life-saving drugs”:

Instead, she called on Johns Hopkins to make all discoveries accessible to the poor. In so arguing, she deprived drug companies of a market and therefore an incentive to develop drugs aimed at Third World populations.

5-year-old boy tested for Ebola in NYC after return from Africa

A 5-year-old boy who just returned from West Africa was transported to Bellevue Hospital Sunday with possible Ebola symptoms, according to law-enforcement sources.

The child was vomiting and had a 103-degree fever when he was carried from his Bronx home by EMS workers wearing hazmat suits, neighbors said. “He looked weak,” said a neighbor.

“He was really, really out of it.”

CDC Finally Admits that Ebola Can Float through the Air … 3 Feet

We’ve noted for some time that Ebola can be spread by aerosols to frontline healthcare workers.

The CDC is finally admitting this fact.

The CDC put out a new poster stating:

Droplet spread happens when germs traveling inside droplets that are coughed or sneezed from a sick person enter the eyes, nose, or mouth of another person. Droplets travel short distances, less than 3 feet (1 meter) from one person to another.

A person might also get infected by touching a surface or object that has germs on it and then touching their mouth or nose.

***

Clean and disinfect commonly touched surfaces like doorknobs, faucet handles, and toys, since the Ebola virus may live on surfaces for up to several hours.

Quarantined Traveler Who Returned To N.J. From West Africa Develops Fever

A health care worker who was quarantined at Newark Liberty International Airport after returning from treating Ebola patients in West Africa developed a fever and was being evaluated Friday night.

The woman was the first person quarantined under a new screening system announced earlier Friday by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

The woman landed at Newark after treating Ebola patients in Sierra Leone, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said at the news conference. A legal quarantine was issued for the woman, who was not a New Jersey resident and was set to go on to New York afterward.

CDC whistleblower: “Oh my God…what we did”

On October 14, Brian Hooker and Andrew Wakefield sent an official and detailed complaint to the CDC and the US Dept. of Health and Human Services.

The devastating and explosive complaint concerns scientific misconduct in a now-infamous 2004 CDC study, which gave the MMR vaccine a free pass and concluded the vaccine had no connection to autism.

CDC whistleblower William Thompson was a co-author on that study, and on August 27 he admitted he and his co-authors committed fraud and covered up the vaccine-autism connection.

Ebola quarantine nurse's ties to CDC scrubbed from web; was it a staged op to invoke opposition to quarantines?

Kaci Hickox, the nurse who was quarantined in New Jersey over her high risk status as a possible Ebola carrier, has ties to the CDC which have been deliberately hidden by the mainstream media.

Right now, a war is waging between states like New Jersey, New York and Illinois -- which have all decided to quarantine travelers at high risk of Ebola infections -- and the federal government which is adamantly opposed to border security, medical quarantines and travel bans.

Kaci Hickox emerged in the center of this debate just yesterday when she complained of being "interrogated" and held in violation of her civil rights. Kaci's LinkedIn.com profile, which described her links to the CDC, was scrubbed from the web earlier today, and even Google cache has strangely been cleared of her profile which previously detailed her ties to the CDC.

New report documents federal clampdown on scientists' freedom of expression

In February 2012, the scientific journal Nature published an editorial opinion piece, Frozen Out, calling on the Canadian government to reform policies that restrict media access to federal scientists. This followed numerous stories documenting delays and confusion in how different federal departments respond to requests for media interviews on scientific matters.

How has the Harper government reacted? A new report, Can Scientists Speak, finds that federal media policies remain far more restrictive than those in the United States, and gives low to failing grades to nearly all 16 departments that employ scientists.

Man in Tokyo being tested for Ebola: reports

A man in his 40s is reportedly being tested for Ebola in Japan's capital after arriving at Tokyo's Haneda airport from Liberia. The man, who would mark the first Ebola case in the country, was taken to a hospital to be examined for possible infection, according to Kyodo and other media reports in Japan. The country's Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare did not immediately respond to a request for comment or confirmation, but media reports cite health minister Yasuhisa Shiozaki as calling the move "precautionary." Local newspaper Japan Times said the man was a journalist who spent two months in Africa. Results of the test will be known early Tuesday.

DINOSAUR 13

When Paleontologist Peter Larson and his team from the Black Hills Institute made the world's greatest dinosaur discovery in 1990, they knew it was the find of a lifetime; the largest, most complete T. rex ever found. But during a ten-year battle with the U.S. government, powerful museums, Native American tribes, and competing paleontologists they found themselves not only fighting to keep their dinosaur but fighting for their freedom as well.

Based on the book "Rex Appeal: The Amazing Story of Sue, the Dinosaur That Changed Science, the Law, and My Life" by PETER LARSON and KRISTIN DONNAN

Webmaster's Commentary: 


Claire and I watched this documentary last night. It is a stunning example of our current government seeing its role in society as bullying people whenever it can. The government went after Peter Larson and Kristin Donnan with a vengeance, railroading them first out of business then into prison while the man who actually committed the crime of selling the fossil T-Rex without US Department of the interior permission walked away with $7.6 million tax free from the sale of "Sue", the most complete T-rex ever found.

Guatemala syphilis experiment

The syphilis experiments in Guatemala were United States-led human experiments conducted in Guatemala from 1946 to 1948, during the administration of President Truman and President Juan José Arévalo with the cooperation of some Guatemalan health ministries and officials.[1] Doctors infected soldiers, prostitutes, prisoners and mental patients with syphilis and other sexually transmitted diseases, without the informed consent of the subjects, and treated most subjects with antibiotics. This resulted in at least 83 deaths.[2] In October 2010, the U.S. formally apologized to Guatemala for conducting these experiments.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are two things to take away from this story.

1. The US Government does carry out human experiments.

2. The illegals from Guatemala probably have a lot of syphilis and other STDs!

Top U.S. health official warns of risks from Ebola quarantines

Quarantines imposed on travelers coming from Ebola-affected countries in West Africa could discourage American health workers from going there to help fight the epidemic, a senior U.S. medical official said on Sunday, warning such measures were "a little bit draconian."

New York, New Jersey and Illinois imposed 21-day mandatory quarantines in the last two days for anyone arriving with a risk of having contracted Ebola in Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea. They are the three West African countries that have borne the brunt of an epidemic that has killed nearly 5,000 people.

But critics worry the policies, going beyond federal regulations and intended to ease public concern over the spread of the disease, will just make matters worse.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I cannot understand why the Obama administration is keeping the travel lanes to Africa wide open. Maybe he is listening to his ego again. But one possible compromise nobody is talking about is allowing the volunteers (with a blood test) to skip the mandatory quarantine and impose the 21 day period on everyone else whose travel originates in Africa.

FLASHBACK 2009 - Baxter Sent Bird Flu Virus to European Labs by Error (Update2)

Baxter International Inc. in Austria unintentionally contaminated samples with the bird flu virus that were used in laboratories in three neighboring countries, raising concern about the potential spread of the deadly disease.

The contamination was discovered when ferrets at a laboratory in the Czech Republic died after being inoculated with vaccine made from the samples early this month. The material came from Deerfield, Illinois-based Baxter, which reported the incident to the Austrian Ministry of Health, Sigrid Rosenberger, a ministry spokeswoman, said today in a telephone interview.

“This was infected with a bird flu virus,” Rosenberger said. “There were some people from the company who handled it.”

My Cousin is Gone- Ebola/Government

My cousin attends Greenville College in Greenville, IL and recently came back from a mission trip to Liberia. He was their as a premed student giving vaccinations for polio and other various illnesses. He came back 6 days ago and began showing symptoms related to Ebola 3 days ago which he reported to Greenville Regional Hospital. They followed up with him by sending an ambulance with hazmat gear and shipped him to Barnes Hospital in Saint Louis, Missouri.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is no confirmation of this story, as is also the case with Dr. James Lawrenzi's report to Alex Jones that he knows of two patients that vanished from hospitals in Kansas City.

But let is stipulate for the moment that the stories are accurate. The current Ebola strain has a lethality rate of about 50%. If the US Government is trying to keep the public calm it would make sense that Ebola patients determined as likely to recover would be allowed in the media, while patients determined as likely to succumb would be hidden when possible. Another possibility is that while most Ebola victims are suffering from the version of Ebola released during the botched vaccine trials at Kenema, that the original weaponized Ebola might have also broken into the wild. I find it interesting that Obama has ordered a "pause" in US offensive biological weapons research at this time.

No mandatory Ebola quarantine for health workers coming to Washington area

One day after governors in New York, New Jersey and Illinois imposed a mandatory 21-day quarantine on medical workers returning from Ebola-stricken countries in West Africa, public health officials in the District, Maryland and Virginia did not follow suit Saturday, intensifying a national debate over how to prevent the spread of the disease.

Health officials are working to develop a consistent approach for the area around the nation’s capital. Joxel Garcia, director of the D.C. Department of Health, said that a mandatory quarantine was not scientifically justified and could have a chilling effect on the medical personnel, many of them volunteers, needed to treat Ebola patients at home and overseas.

Obama aides criticize Ebola quarantine rules

Aides to President Obama are criticizing decisions by three states to quarantine people who are returning from Ebola-stricken West Africa.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and United Nations ambassador Samantha Power said quarantines may discourage health workers from traveling to West Africa to help block the disease at its source.

"If you put everyone in one basket, even people who are clearly no threat, then we have the problem of the disincentive of people that we need," Fauci said on ABC's This Week. "Let's not forget the best way to stop this epidemic and protect America is to stop it in Africa, and you can really help stopping it in Africa if we have our people, our heroes, the health care workers, go there and help us to protect America."

Ebola fears as woman isolated at Brisbane hospital

A woman possibly infected with Ebola has been isolated at a Brisbane hospital.

The 18-year-old patient had recently arrived in Australia from west Africa but was taken to the Royal Brisbane and Women’s hospital after showing signs of fever, the Seven Network reported on Sunday.

She arrived in Brisbane 11 days ago with eight members of her extended family and all had been placed in home quarantine immediately, Queensland Chief Medical Officer Dr Jeannette Young told reporters in Brisbane.

They had left Guinea to move to Queensland.

Queensland Health knew the family was arriving, met them at the airport and arranged their quarantine.

Staff were checking the family’s health daily and on Saturday night the 18-year-old developed a fever.

The New York doctor who tested positive for Ebola wasn't required to quarantine himself when he returned to New York City after treating Ebola patients in Guinea. Instead, Dr. Craig Allen Spencer went about his life, hitting a popular restaurant and bowling alley before his diagnosis -- and sending health officials scrambling in the aftermath.

But the rules on quarantines are changing.
