A Public Service Post

Tue, Sep 30, 2014 - 1:28pm

We've been following the Ebola story pretty closely these past few months then a headline today made my hair stand on end. Thus this new post.

Look, I know I don't have to start from scratch and tell you how bad this is with a bunch of links. If you're a regular visitor to Turdville, you already know and you've already begun to take precautions. The latest update on the potential spread of the Ebola virus can be found here, from ZH 10 days ago: https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-09-19/exponential-ebola-cases-now-do...

At about the same time, a story surfaced that the U.S. State Department had put in an order for 160,000 HazMat suits. Here's the story from InfoWars: https://www.infowars.com/u-s-state-department-orders-160000-ebola-hazmat... And here's a story from The Daily Mail: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2756832/State-Department-orders...

An important caveat to this story should be read next. This "order" might be just a "bid" and the State Department could be purchasing them strictly for their USAID arm: https://www.politifact.com/punditfact/statements/2014/sep/19/blog-postin... & https://www.marketwatch.com/story/lakeland-industries-announces-global-a...

The latest, US-based Ebola scare is still unfolding in Dallas and needs monitoring: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/to-your-health/wp/2014/09/30/a-dalla...

And there is some potential "good news" from the US Center for Disease Control (CDC): https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2014/09/30/ebola-over-in-nige...

HOWEVER, when I saw the headline below earlier today, ole Turd's head started spinning:


From the article:

"CBS46 News has confirmed the Centers for Disease Control has issued guidelines to U.S. funeral homes on how to handle the remains of Ebola patients. If the outbreak of the potentially deadly virus is in West Africa, why are funeral homes in America being given guidelines?

The three-page list of recommendations include instructing funeral workers to wear protective equipment when dealing with the remains since Ebola can be transmitted in postmortem care. It also instructs to avoid autopsies and embalming."

Look, I have absolutely no idea if Ebola will spread globally. It probably won't and all will be well. But when the US State Department is considering 160,000 new HazMat suits and 5,000 bodybags....and when the US CDC is warning about 500,000 casualties and issuing guidelines to funeral homes...you might want to start taking this stuff seriously.

This does not mean that The End Is Near and it does not mean that you immediately need to hole up in a bunker somewhere. But if you're not thinking about the possibility that you may need to stay inside and home for 30-60 days at some point soon, you are simply being irresponsible. Now is the time to pay attention and remain alert. Now is the time to give full consideration to whatever action plan you and your family may need in the event of an emergency. Now is the time to stock up and/or resupply whatever emergency items you regularly keep on hand anyway.

Be mindful. Be cautious but not frightened. Always remain situationally aware and continue to prepare accordingly.

@ ancientmoney

Thank you for this.

I am still laughing. Unfortunately, could be true.

This happens like clockwork. As I walk up, I say, "I'll take one of those on the left." The vaccinator syas "they're all the same." I say, "Then there should be no problem giving me one from the box on the left."

I then turn to the crowd and yell, "The box on the right has a live virus, and the one on the left is the real vaccine!"

The U.S. health system is quite good theoretically. In reality it is not that great. All systems are prone to failure. One thing is for sure - if Ebola hits the prisons there will be lots of unemployed prison wardens.

Ancient - "Box on the right"

I saw a sign in the window of the local CVS... They had a "stronger"? vaccine available for the over 60's. That's probably what was going on there. But they should have been telling the recipients what they were getting.

Lots of questions...& lots of answers to your questions...

about the Dallas ebola case...I suggest everyone listen to this Hagmann & Hagmann report...definitely investigative sleuthing at it's best!!!...

@ Fix

"I can do this all day long."

"I don’t normally dump my research links on you, but you need to be as informed as possible."

While its good to know that you can use "the google" to learn stuff do you really think its necessary to copy and paste entire comments and then post a list of links with not a single line regarding their content?

It would be helpful if just once in a while you could take the time to interpret what you post and not simply parrot the agenda of the original work. Go for the value added comment rather than the bulk posting! Take your post titled Canadian cover-up which is a complete C & P from infowars.


If you had taken the time to do the research you might have found that rather than a cover-up the data on mode of transmission of Ebola was revised to more clearly reflect present knowledge. Specifically as stated "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."

What this means is that caged macaques became infected when placed near infected caged pigs in a 2012 study.


Later lab experiments in 2014 found that caged macaques did not become infected when sharing quarters with infected caged macaques.


The disparate results led to the following comment "Pigs seem to give off more aerosolized viral particles than other species, says Derek Gatherer, a viral evolutionary biologist at Lancaster University in England. “If it’s going to spread by aerosols, then pigs are the species to do it,”

Thus this idea of aerosolized but not airborne transmission is well known, but humans rarely sweat like pigs.

Note: Google "macaques get Ebola from infected pigs".

We discussed the misinformation about Ebola patents in the original Ebola thread in the Forums, please just review that discussion from August.

Plus, your concept of "ownership" is off.

The outbreak of this particular strain was due to the economic situation in West Africa. The governments of Sierra Leone, Guinea, and Liberia had poor healthcare systems.

When the virus broke out, this epidemic wiped out the physician and nurses available to treat the patients and to track the epidemic.

Liberia's own government is partially compromised due to the deaths of some government officials due to Ebola. In the original Ebola thread (the one that got shut down) I highlighted the decompensation and destruction of governance in Liberia due to the outbreak.

This has led to the continuing spread of the disease in Liberia.
