Will There Be an Ebola Outbreak in America?

The video above features Barbara Loe-Fisher, co-founder and president of the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC), a non-profit charity dedicated to preventing vaccine injuries and deaths through public education and defending the legal right for everyone to make vaccine choices.

In her video, Barbara discusses how "a localized Ebola outbreak has been turned into a global public health emergency," and why there's reason to suspect that American and international authorities did not actually want Ebola to be confined to a few African nations.

US public health officials now warn that Ebola—a highly contagious and deadly hemorrhagic fever-type disease—might become as widespread as HIV/AIDS

ObamaCare Architect Admits "Lack Of Transparency" Is Huge Advantage Against "Stupidity Of The American Voter"

An architect of the federal healthcare law said last year that a “lack of transparency” and the “stupidity of the American voter” helped Congress approve ObamaCare.

He suggested that many lawmakers and voters didn’t know what was in the law or how its financing worked, and that this helped it win approval.

“Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage,” Gruber said. “And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical for the thing to pass.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Enrollment fall far short of predictions, in part because the healthcare.gov website was a technical disaster, health care costs have gone up, as have the premiums AND deductibles on the approved insurance policies. Contrary to the claim that the ACA would lower health insurance costs, more Americans than ever before cannot afford health insurance and now have the IRS fining them for not being able to afford health insurance.

And he thinks we're stupid?

Roundup herbicide damages sperm cells, affects reproductive system

Men exposed to even trace amounts of the Monsanto herbicide Roundup are at a serious risk of sperm damage and reproductive problems, according to a new study. Professor Gilles-Eric Seralini and his colleagues from the University of Caen in France found that short-term exposure to Roundup at levels frequently found in water after agricultural sprayings causes long-term fertility issues, including damage to hormonal systems.

Colloidal Silver Working Against Ebola in West Africa!

According to news reports coming out of Sierra Leone, West Africa, there's been a very surprising turn of events in regards to the Ebola crisis.

Apparently, at least several shipments of nanosilver – colloidal silver composed of very small particles of silver suspended in water – appear to have made it into West African countries where Ebola was raging.

And in spite of opposition to the use of colloidal silver by medical bureaucrats in the World Health Organization (WHO), the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the silver actually appears to working against the virus!

Not only that, but Sierra Leone's Minister of Presidential and Public Affairs – a trained chemist named Alpha Kanu – has announced that 10 ppm nanosilver has now been proclaimed to be an official approved Ebola treatment in that nation.

37 Million Bees Found Dead in Canada After Large GMO Crop Planting

The makers of neonicotinoids, the bee-killing insecticide that was banned all over Europe, won’t be able to refute this latest phenomenon. Millions of bees were found dead after GMO corn was planted in Ontario, Canada. This isn’t new news, but it should be known news.

The keeper of these bees, Dave Schuit, who produces honey, reported that he lost over 600 hives – around 37 million bees.

“Once the corn started to get planted our bees died by the millions,” Schuit said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Some years back there was an article in the journal Nature that demonstrated GMO pollen was harmful to benign insect species. The article focused primarily on the effects of GMO pollen on the monarch butterfly, which alongside the bee, does pollination on plants. The article showed conclusively that the GMO pollen was harmful to the insects, but as Colony Collapse Disorder became news, we were fed a steady stream of propaganda to point the finger of blame at cell phone towers, mites, fungi, and insecticides.

It may well be that killing of nature's pollinators is part of the GMO business plan, as farmers who can no longer grow natural and organic crops will be forces to buy the pre-pollinated seeds from the GMO tech companies. This means that when the economy collapses and those tech companies go out of business, the global famine that will follow will be much worse since the natural food crops have been decimated in the name of corporate greed.

A study out of Denmark seems to have found something good can come out of a high-fat diet. The study was conducted while looking at the effects of a high-fat diet on Cockayne syndrome, a premature aging disease.

The hope is such a diet can not only help children with Cockayne syndrome, who more often die of old age related symptoms somewhere between 10 and 12, but also help others. That is what the study found could happen.
“Our study suggests that a high-fat diet can postpone aging processes," lead author of the study, Professor Vilhelm Bohr of the Center for Healthy Aging at the Univ. of Copenhagen, said in a press release. "A diet high in fat also seems to postpone the aging of the brain. The findings therefore potentially imply that patients with Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease in the long term may benefit from the new knowledge."

High-fat diet: aging slowed down

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When it comes to health, knowledge is power.

I had grandparents who had longevity, but with poor health. Today, it is definitely within almost all of our grasp to have longevity with better health.

Ebola scare in the armed forces: Air force pilot back from Liberia with 'flu-like' symptoms is tested but cleared of having the deadly virus

A pilot who flew on a mission to West Africa and began experiencing ‘flu-like symptoms’ when he returned home was tested for Ebola but has been declared free of the deadly virus.

The pilot from the 437th Airlift Wing based in Charleston, South Carolina, flew to Liberia on a three-hour mission on October 23.

He began experiencing ‘flu-like symptoms' when he arrived back in the U.S but was considered low risk because he never left the plane.

'Ebola is man-made', and other crazy conspiracy theories

Is Obama behind the Ebola outbreak? Are planes poisoning us? Is Lady Gaga part of an evil Illuminati plot? The five conspiracy theories you won't believe people believe

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a classic "poison the well" propaganda piece in which they take the one theory for which there is evidence; a botch-up of human trials for a vaccine against a weaponized Ebola, and blend it in with all sorts of unrelated nonsense to try to discredit it. But let us look at the facts.

The story that is emerging regarding the current Ebola outbreak involves a US bioweapons research laboratory located in a hospital at Kenema, Sierra Leone.

This facility was staffed by biological warfare researchers from Tulane University and the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID). Biological warfare research that is illegal to conduct in the United States is carried out in remote locations in Africa.

In 2010, the Obama Administration directed the National Institutes of Health to give offensive biological weapons research high priority.Multiple sources report that some of this research involved weaponization of Ebola. Professor Francis Boyle, a biological weapons expert, reports that the NIH was experimenting with a hybrid of Ebola and the common cold, to make it more contagious.


Obviously, if one is creating a highly contagious BSL 4 hot agent, one must also have a vaccine to protect ones own people, and it appears that this was the research being done at Kenema. In January of 2014, The lab at Kenema received $140 million from the US Defense Department and Tekmira pharmaceuticals to test an experimental Ebola vaccine on humans. Most viral vaccines involve the actual virus which has been attenuated or otherwise inactivated so that it triggers the creation of antibodies, but without producing symptoms of the illness. The attenuated virus must be kept as close to the real virus as possible for maximum antibody production. But even CDC acknowledges that attenuated virus in vaccines can spontaneously revert to full potency inside the body. This appears to be what happened with the recent measles and mumps epidemics in the US, where 90% of the patients had been administered the vaccines for those illnesses. And this may be what happened at Kenema during the human trials for the Ebola vaccine, as the African Ebola outbreak centers on Kenema, Sierra Leone. Certainly the government of Sierra Leone views the biological warfare laboratory as ground zero in the outbreak and has closed the research facility (but reopened the hospital portion in October 2014).

FLASHBACK 2001 - GM corn set to stop man spreading his seed

Scientists have created the ultimate GM crop: contraceptive corn. Waiving fields of maize may one day save the world from overpopulation.

The pregnancy prevention plants are the handiwork of the San Diego biotechnology company Epicyte, where researchers have discovered a rare class of human antibodies that attack sperm.

By isolating the genes that regulate the manufacture of these antibodies, and by putting them in corn plants, the company has created tiny horticultural factories that make contraceptives.

'We have a hothouse filled with corn plants that make anti-sperm antibodies,' said Epicyte president Mitch Hein.

Newly discovered fossil could prove a problem for creationists

Researchers report that they've found the missing link between an ancient aquatic predator and its ancestors on land. Ichthyosaurs, the dolphin-like reptiles that lived in the sea during the time of the dinosaurs, evolved from terrestrial creatures that made their way back into the water over time.

But the fossil record for the lineage has been spotty, without a clear link between land-based reptiles and the aquatic ichthyosaurs scientists know came after. Now, researchers report in Nature that they've found that link — an amphibious ancestor of the swimming ichthyosaurs named Cartorhynchus lenticarpus.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Young earth creationism is essentially the position that all of modern science, 90% of living scientists and 98% of living biologists, all major university biology departments, every major science journal, the American Academy of Sciences, and every major science organization in the world, are all wrong regarding the origins and development of life ... but one particular tribe of uneducated, bronze aged, goat herders got it exactly right."

‘A mass sterilization exercise’: Kenyan doctors find anti-fertility agent in UN tetanus vaccine

Kenya’s Catholic bishops are charging two United Nations organizations with sterilizing millions of girls and women under cover of an anti-tetanus inoculation program sponsored by the Kenyan government.

According to a statement released Tuesday by the Kenya Catholic Doctors Association, the organization has found an antigen that causes miscarriages in a vaccine being administered to 2.3 million girls and women by the World Health Organization and UNICEF. Priests throughout Kenya reportedly are advising their congregations to refuse the vaccine.

“We sent six samples from around Kenya to laboratories in South Africa. They tested positive for the HCG antigen,” Dr. Muhame Ngare of the Mercy Medical Centre in Nairobi told LifeSiteNews. “They were all laced with HCG.”

Ebola cases rise sharply in Sierra Leone

Sierra Leone is reporting an alarming increase in the number of new Ebola cases, with 435 confirmed in the past week.

About 24% of the Ebola cases in Sierra Leone have been reported in the past three weeks, although the outbreak began in March, according to the World Health Organization.

Those stark figures contrast with the hopeful news last week from Liberia, where the number of new cases has been falling. Officials at the WHO have said the drop in Liberia could be partly due to an increase in safe burials.

Ebola transmission in Guinea, where the outbreak started, "remains intense," according to the WHO.

Health officials from the WHO have cautioned, however, that the Ebola virus is unpredictable. Cases may appear to fall or level off only to come raging back a short time later.

Boehner vows House will repeal Obamacare

House Speaker John A. Boehner said President Obama will “poison” chances for cooperation with Congress if he moves unilaterally to claim powers to grant legal status to illegal immigrants.

“He’s going to burn himself if he continues to go down this path,” Mr. Boehner said.

Newly elected to his House seat and likely to be returned at speaker in the next Congress, Mr. Boehner said he would like to tackle immigration in Congress but wouldn’t commit to holding a vote, saying he wanted to talk with his fellow House Republicans first.

SEE ALSO: White House predicts GOP might ‘change their tune’ after landslide victory

He did, however, say the House will vote to repeal Obamacare and will also likely pass a bunch of bills to carve out some of the most contentious parts such as a tax on medical devices or the individual mandate.

“We need to put them on the president’s desk and let him choose,” the speaker said.

Study Says Natural Factors, Not Humans, Behind West Coast Warming

Oceanographers and atmospheric scientists are quick to say the warming waters are not linked to human-caused climate change, but also say what they've seen doesn't match other recognized patterns in ocean conditions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Maybe.

Or maybe we have a classic case of specialists being so specialized they don't see what they need to see.

Here is where "interdisciplinary" science becomes valuable.

In the illustration shown in the above article, note that the pattern of heat appears near New Guinea in the area of the Marianas trench. I have indicated the point of origin on the below copy.



Now, I have mentioned many times before that nobody knows how many active volcanoes and thermal vents there are on the floor of the world's oceans, but we do know where many of them are, as is indicated on this map from the USGS.

From the section indicated in detail it is clear that there are a great many volcanoes in the exact same area where the plume of warm water is appearing, which suggests that these volcanoes, rather than human activity or unknown ocean flow patterns, is what is pouring heat into the Pacific!

Shocking report accuses Obama's 'Dreamers' of killing U.S. kids

A stinging report released on Tuesday by a renowned Inside the Beltway watchdog group accused President Barack Obama's allegedly fabricated “humanitarian crisis” that allowed tens of thousands of illegal aliens minors -- who unlawfully flooded the border into Texas and were dispersed throughout the United States -- of spreading a deadly respiratory virus that’s attacking American children in a number of states throughout country. It's believed the virus actually killed as many as nine kids so far, according to the public-interest law firm that battles government corruption in the federal courts, Judicial Watch. In the group's latest addition to its Corruption Chronicles, the nonprofit, nonpartisan investigators of government corruption and criminal activity describe a cynical and destructive immigration policy that led to at least nine American children dying from a highly contagious disease.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If Obama's sole purpose in flooding the illegals into the US was to create instant Democratic voters in states without voter ID laws to swing the midterms towards the Democrats, he utterly failed, which means all those American kids were allowed to become sick for no reason. Speculation is that Obama will try to cram though amnesty before the new Congress starts in January, but if swinging the vote was his only objective I would not be surprised to see Obama just drop the whole issue as "punishment" for the illegals who "failed" to keep the Democrats in power.

GMO Labeling: Colorado Voters Reject Food Measure; Maui Voters Approve

In the latest bids for states to compel companies to label foods that contain genetically modified ingredients, Colorado voters decided the issue in their state today.

Proposition 105, was defeated by a roughly 2-1 margin Tuesday.

Oregon voters also considered a measure, but it is still too close to call — the no vote leading the yes vote by two percentage points with more than 80 percent of the vote counted.

In Hawaii, Maui County voters considered an initiative that went far beyond labeling. By a slim margin, voters decided to temporarily ban genetically engineered crops.

"The county's first-ever ballot initiative targeting global agriculture companies Monsanto and Dow AgroSciences attracted nearly $8 million from opponents," Honolulu Civil Beat reports, "making it the most expensive campaign in Hawaii's history."

That the expense equates to "more than $75 per registered voter in Maui County, which has a population of just around 160,000."

Government Lied About Pandemic Which Killed 50 Million People … Attempt to “Prevent Panic” Backfired

In the United States, national and local government and public health authorities badly mishandled the [1918 "Spanish Flu"] epidemic [which killed up to 50 million people worldwide], offering a useful case study.

The context is important. Every country engaged in World War I tried to control public perception. To avoid hurting morale, even in the nonlethal first wave the press in countries fighting in the war did not mention the outbreak. (But Spain was not at war and its press wrote about it, so the pandemic became known as the Spanish flu).

The United States was no different. In 1917 California Senator Hiram Johnson made the since-famous observation that “The first casualty when war comes is truth.” The U.S. government passed a law that made it punishable by 20 years in jail to “utter, print, write or publish any disloyal, profane, scurrilous, or abusive language about the government of the United States.”

A group of aid agencies says that thousands of people in Sierra Leone are being forced to violate Ebola quarantines to find food because deliveries are not reaching them.

In order to prevent the spread of Ebola, large swaths of the West African country have been sealed off and within those areas many people have been ordered to stay in their homes. The government, with help from the U.N.'s World Food Program, is tasked with delivering food and other services to those people.

For starters, vaccine manufacturers are demanding indemnity against lawsuits that may arise from the use of a fast-tracked Ebola vaccine,2 similar to the indemnity claimed by the United Nations (UN), whose peacekeepers stand accused of causing the cholera outbreak in Haiti after the 2010 earthquake that devastated the small country.

An estimated 700,000 Haitians have contracted cholera and 8,500 have died from it since the beginning of the outbreak. While the source of the outbreak could not be conclusively determined, a group of Haitians filed a lawsuit against the UN in 2013.

A lawyer for the US Justice Department recently called for the case to be dismissed, saying the UN is "absolutely immune" to claims of wrongdoing.3 This is the kind of "immunity" vaccine makers want as well, but indemnity might not be quite as easy to get as initially thought in this case.

No matter who wins, today's election outcome can't stop America's head-on course toward self-destruction

Regardless of the outcome of today's U.S. mid-term elections, there are some things that won't change one iota. While most of America has finally come to realize what a disaster Obama's presidency has really been in real-world terms, there are at least five other disasters looming in America's near future. And neither Republicans nor Democrats have any real plan to deal with these issues... especially when it's so much easier to get elected by slandering your opponent rather than proposing practical solutions.

So here's my warning on the five biggest threats still facing America in the years ahead. Don't hold your breath thinking anyone in Washington D.C. is willing to address any of these. After all, they are the ones who created most of these problems in the first place.

Some in DoD Worried That Ebola Could Go Airborne

As the international community continues to grapple with Ebola, some in the Defense Department are concerned that the deadly virus could become airborne.

Ebola has killed nearly 5,000 people in West Africa during the latest outbreak, and officials project that thousands more in the region could die. There is no known cure or vaccine.

After Botching Ebola, WHO to Pick New Africa Boss

After acknowledging that it bungled the response to the biggest Ebola outbreak in history, the World Health Organization is electing a new regional director for its Africa office this week. Critics say it's about time.

WHO Africa is widely acknowledged to be the U.N. health agency's weakest regional office. In an internal draft document obtained by the Associated Press last month, WHO blamed its staff in Africa for initially botching the response to Ebola, describing many of its regional staff as "politically-motivated appointments" and noted numerous complaints about WHO officials in West Africa.

The media agrees to downplay Ebola

The Associated Press and other press outlets have agreed not to report on suspected cases of Ebola in the United States until a positive viral RNA test is completed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

But Nina Pham getting her dog back was covered in every major media outlet!

The "viral RNA test" or "viral load" test is based on polymerase chain reaction replication of a test sample, but the developer of that test claims it is inappropriate to use it as a diagnostic tool. During early infections it is possible to start with a sample that does not contain the pathogen and there have already been false-negatives using this test.

Preliminary Negative Result For Ebola; Liberian Traveler Still Isolated At Duke Hospital

The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services is reporting this hour that tests conducted by the State Laboratory of Public Health returned a negative result for Ebola virus in a blood sample taken from a patient, described below, who was transported to Duke University Hospital on Sunday. The patient self-reported to the CDC that they developed a fever after traveling to the U.S. from Liberia on Friday and Saturday.

This negative result will be followed by another test at 72 hours after the patient developed the fever, most likely on Wednesday morning with results expected late Wednesday or early Thursday.

‘Entire villages disappeared’: Ebola deaths in Sierra Leone ‘underreported’

Ebola’s toll on Sierra Leone is much greater than previously thought, with entire villages killed off by the virus. This means up to 20,000 people could have succumbed to the disease by now, a senior coordinator for Doctors Without Borders (MSF) believes.

According to Rony Zachariah, coordinator of operational research for MSF, the Ebola impact on Sierra Leone is in fact “under-reported,” AFP quotes.

“The situation is catastrophic. There are several villages and communities that have been basically wiped out. In one of the villages I went to, there were 40 inhabitants and 39 died,” Zachariah told the agency.“Whole communities have disappeared but many of them are not in the statistics. The situation on the ground is actually much worse.”

Parents believe flu shot left 10-year-old Florida girl bedridden, unable to speak

A flu shot meant to protect a Florida girl instead was the likely culprit that left the 10-year-old bedridden and mostly unable to speak.

The family of Marysue Grivna said everything changed after she got the influenza vaccine on Nov. 22, 2013. Three days later, Marysue’s parents called 911 after she didn’t immediately wake and could not speak.

Her parents blame acute disseminated encephalomyelitis, or ADEM, an immune-mediated disease of the brain that can be brought on following a viral infection. It’s a debilitating illness that strikes approximately 8 people per 1,000,000, WTSP reported.

NASA Confirms A 2,500-Square-Mile Cloud Of Methane Floating Over US Southwest

The team at NASA was finally able to take a closer look, and have now concluded that there is in fact a 2,500-square-mile cloud of methane—roughly the size of Delaware—floating over the Four Corners region, where the borders of Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah all intersect.

A report published by the NASA researchers in the journal Geophysical Research Letters concludes that “the source is likely from established gas, coal, and coalbed methane mining and processing.” Indeed, the hot spot happens to be above New Mexico’s San Juan Basin, the most productive coalbed methane basin in North America.

State Department plans to bring foreign Ebola patients to U.S.

The State Department has quietly made plans to bring Ebola-infected doctors and medical aides to the U.S. for treatment, according to an internal department document that argued the only way to get other countries to send medical teams to West Africa is to promise that the U.S. will be the world’s medical backstop.

Some countries “are implicitly or explicitly waiting for medevac assurances” before they will agree to send their own medical teams to join U.S. and U.N. aid workers on the ground, the State Department argues in the undated four-page memo, which was reviewed by The Washington Times.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The only treatment that has consistently worked so far is transfusion of blood from an Ebola survivor of the same blood type. That is something that every nation can already do. So the only reason these other nations want to take their infected Ebola workers is that they don;t want the risk of bringing them back to their own nation and risk a runaway infection of their own people. Isn't it special that Obama doesn't seem to care if that is a problem here, so long as we all get to the polls Tuesday and those shopping malls for the Christmas shopping season!

Former Pro-GMO Biotech Scientist Admits GMOs Aren’t Safe, Refutes Claims by Monsanto

In comes Dr. Thierry Vrain, a former GMO biotechnologist who has come out with a lot of information that should open people’s eyes about the real dangers of genetically modified foods and crops.

Vrain will be the first to admit that Monsanto has conducted a lot of studies showing that GMOs are safe, but he changed his own tune about ten years ago when he started reading scientific journals from other countries.

Vrain explains:

“I started paying attention to the flow of published studies coming from Europe, some from prestigious labs and published in prestigious scientific journals, that questioned the impact and safety of engineered food.”

Vrain was so much a supporter of GMOs (as well as a former biotech scientist for Agriculture Canada) that he used to conduct tours and tell large groups of people all about the greatness of genetically altered crops – but not anymore. Here is what he thinks about his former industry now:

FLASHBACK 2010 - Obama Administration Gives NIH Priority to Bioweapons Research

The priorities of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the area of bacteriology have been “catastrophically re-ordered” by emphasizing bioweapons research over non-bioweapons research, a prominent authority states.

Giving priority to bioweapons research at NIH, started under the Bush Administration and continuing under President Obama, “diverts resources from critical public-health and scientific objectives,” says Richard Ebright, Professor of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Rutgers University, New Brunswick, N.J.

“The negative impact has been most severe in bacteriology, in which NIH research priorities have been catastrophically re-ordered—with research on bacterial bioweapons receiving more support than research on the top five bacterial causes of death combined—and in which non-bioweapons research has suffered catastrophic losses in resources and personnel,” Ebright said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, back in 2010 Obama ordered the NIH to switch their priority from health to bioweapons research. Professor Francis Boyle reports that NIH spliced Ebola with the common cold to weaponize it, and evidence has surfaced that the bioweapon lab at Kenema was testing a vaccine against this weaponized Ebola last January ... which is when the Ebola outbreak erupted in the area around that lab. Now Obama has quietly "paused" offensive bioweapon research in the US.

This is starting to read like the first chapter of Stephen King's "The Stand", where the world population is all but wiped out when a bioweapon, popularly called "Captain Trips", escaped from a US laboratory.

The administration's handling of Ebola as if it is no big deal may partly be rooted in their awareness that the US, and Obama, may be at root responsible for this deadly outbreak!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
