A Public Service Post

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: http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-09-19/exponential-ebola-cases-now-double-every-3-weeks-cdc-warns-over-half-million-may-be-

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: http://www.infowars.com/u-s-state-department-orders-160000-ebola-hazmat-suits/ And here's a story from The Daily Mail: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2756832/State-Department-orders-5-000-BODY-BAGS-160-000-hazmat-suits-African-Ebola-outbreak-Obama-sends-100-CDC-experts.html

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: http://www.politifact.com/punditfact/statements/2014/sep/19/blog-posting/infowars-us-ordering-16000-hazmat-suits-sign-ebola/  &  http://www.marketwatch.com/story/lakeland-industries-announces-global-availability-of-hazmat-suits-for-ebola-2014-09-12/print

The latest, US-based Ebola scare is still unfolding in Dallas and needs monitoring: http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/to-your-health/wp/2014/09/30/a-dallas-hospital-is-evaluating-a-patient-for-possible-ebola/

And there is some potential "good news" from the US Center for Disease Control (CDC): http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2014/09/30/ebola-over-in-nigeria/16473339/

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

http://www.cbs46.com/story/26657838/cdc-issues-ebola-guidelines-for-us-funeral-homes

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.

Whew!

Now it is getting crazy. Just had another state level briefing including info from someone who went there.
The one thing that stuck out...the virus lives for up to 3 months in your semen...after you've been otherwise cleared...
That will keep the conspiracy folks happy for a while longer!!!

way too close to home

I'm in Austin, Texas. So I went to Walgreens today to buy a bunch of hand sanitizer and alcohol wipes. Some to give to admin, who is going up to the Dallas area for a business meeting tomorrow. I have another close friend who is going up there to see her grandkids this weekend. I am very worried.

Texas is a big state, but Austin and Dallas really aren't that far apart from one another. It's a 3 hour drive if traffic is good and you drive fast.

I am just going under the assumption that Ebola is not going to be contained in America. It may not be as bad as it is in Liberia, because we have better nutrition and hygiene here, but I would not be surprised if we get to the point where it is as common as the flu.

I am going to live my life for now. In this regard I am glad I have no children. If I die my main concern is who is going to take care of my two rescue cats, one who is only comfortable with me and the other who is a bit nutty.

I went to the gym today and spoke to an older woman who was watching the Ebola news on CNN and she was very concerned. This is not a case where the average person is totally asleep, but at the same time, while some of the hand sanitizer was gone when I bought mine, it wasn't like there was a run on it...yet.

I decided not to go so far as to buy anti-viral masks. If it seriously gets that bad, I'm not sure if I want to live in the Mad Max aftermath. 

So you want some real doom and gloom? There it is. It definitely means more when the Ebola is in the next big city over, a city that people you are close to regularly travel to.

BTW: Someone mentioned above having a bad feeling. I have had a bad feeling since last week and went into total meltdown mode on Monday. I did mention to those close to me last week I was wondering if something was coming. I also have personal crap going on right now so part of it is that, but...well. If you don't think this Ebola is bad, I suggest you have normalcy bias going for you. Go look up how many people died of Spanish flu back in the early 20th century. That's what we're looking at. 

Pray!

While loading up wood for this winter

earlier today, I was thinking about the ebola outbreak, the fact the CDC owns the patents to all ebola stripes, has reportedly produced a vaccine against ebola several years ago, claims they are working on an ebola vaccine now, with trial upcoming, etc., etc.

Ebola burst on the scene earlier this year similar to ISIS.

Every psy-op that occurs seems now to happen in hyper-drive, like there is no tomorrow.

I guess the TEOTGKE is very, very close, and the elite know it.

Anyway, as I was loading, my mind wandered to the not-too-distant future wherein everyone is rounded up, put on buses, and taken to a "vaccination station."

Most everybody rounded up is grateful to get the shot, and everyone is relatively calm. 

However, I am not.  I do not want this vaccine, just as I have not taken the recommended flu shots over the years.  It's not that I don't trust the government, its just that I just don't trust the government.

Anyway, the vaccinators are recently impressed govt. worker bees, males, sort of like TSA employees.

I'm watching them as I stand in line and move toward my big moment.

I watch intently, and notice that cute younger women are given a shot from the box on their left, and older, useless eaters get a shot from the box on the right.  This happens over and over.

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!"

Could it be that simple?  We see it everyday.  Someone makes a "regrettable, terrible error" and people die.  Regrettable, terrible errors could be part of the Georgia Guidestones solution.

Bollocks, I am not a gllom and doomer, but this is how my mind thinks after 9/11, Sandy Hook, Boston bombing, ISIS, Ebola, etc.

It's just all too much, all at once.  There is an agenda.

"Ebola burst on the scene earlier this year similar to ISIS."

LOL

wrong.

Ebola has been known for decades.

And your assertion that CDC "owns the patents to all ebola stripes" is wrong also.

But, in reading this entire discussion thread, I hesitate to even post.
The discussion board feature has become saturated with anti-government whackadoodles.

ancientmoney's picture

SSJ re: ebola . . .

Yes, ebola has been around while, but never, ever with a breakout anything even close to this one.  That was my point.  Why now?  Coincidence? 

What I've read says that CDC indeed owns the ebola virus and its strains.  Don't just talk--prove it wrong.

Whack-a-doodle?  I'm about as level-headed a person as you will find, but I am a realist.

ag1969's picture

I think SSJ is correct about the patent

My understanding, from what I have read, is that the CDC owns the patent to a specific strain that is not the one being blamed for the breakout in Africa that we are currently experiencing.  I have not delved into this in several weeks and don't remember the exact details. 

I also seem to remember that the patent they do own on the specific strain is the only patent that exists on the ebola virus, but I am fuzzy on that too.

What I find strange, is that I thought patents were for inventions or improvements on inventions.  I don't quite understand a government that produces nothing owning a patent on a naturally occurring virus, but that is probably another discussion entirely.

Also, for those of you with children in school, I would keep a very close watch on how this unfolds:

How Dallas schools are coping with parents' fears over Ebola case (+video)

http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/2014/1001/How-Dallas-schools-are-coping-with-parents-fears-over-Ebola-case-video

Whatever procedures they put in place in coming days for dealing with parents trying to get their children will probably be repeated throughout the country if this thing takes off.

This is interesting: Ebola patent

http://www.globalresearch.ca/ebola-and-the-rapid-vaccine-response-the-u-s-government-patented-ebola-in-2009-now-owns-all-victims-blood/5404685

US does own patent and can hence prevent others from developing vaccines.

Seems odd - follow the money to the broken corrupt healthcare system.

@ancientmoney

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.

"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.

https://www.tfmetalsreport.com/comment/436215#comment-436215

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.

http://www.the-scientist.com/?articles.view/articleNo/33277/title/Ebola-from-Pigs-to-Monkeys/

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

https://www.sciencenews.org/article/airborne-transmission-ebola-unlikely-monkey-study-shows

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".

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.

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.

Governments seize colloidal silver being used to successfully treat Ebola patients

Thursday, October 02, 2014 by: Ethan A. Huff, staff writer
(NaturalNews) Efforts to bring natural Ebola treatments to suffering West Africans have been squelched by the World Health Organization (WHO), which recently blocked multiple shipments of nanosilver solution measuring at 10 parts per million (ppm) from entering the region, leaving thousands to suffer needlessly.

WHO officials also reportedly called off a trial at an Ebola isolation ward where local health authorities were set to begin administering the silver, which the U.S. government previously demonstrated is highly effective against Ebola. WHO ordered the trial not to proceed despite the fact that it had earlier voiced support for experimental treatments.

Both WHO and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have given their blessing to experimental therapies for Ebola, citing a lack of proven treatment options. But when it comes to using therapeutic silver, all bets are off, it seems.

Authorities block small shipment of nanosilver three times

According to the Natural Solutions Foundation (NSF), efforts to ship nanosilver into Sierra Leone have thus far failed. The organization has been trying to deliver a shipment of 200 bottles of nanosilver 10 ppm, and 100 tubes of nanosilver gel, to no avail. At this point, the shipment has been returned to the U.S. for the third time.

"That parcel, shipped Air Express at a cost of $3400 to Sierra Leone on August 20, never made it out of Paris," reads an NSF action alert. "Air France has yet to find a reason for that. But it made its way back to the US again, apparently for the 3rd time without being delivered to Africa."

People are dying, and bureaucrats are still playing politics with silver

Formerly classified documents obtained from the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) reveal that antimicrobial silver solutions like the kind NSF is trying to deliver to Africa have proven benefits in fighting Ebola and other forms of hemorrhagic fever. Research conducted by the DOD and several other federal agencies back in 2008 confirmed this, though health regulators largely ignored it.

A presentation entitled "Silver Nanoparticles Neutralize Hemorrhagic Fever Viruses," which revealed exactly what its name suggests, was buried and kept secret for years. In essence, investigators determined that simple silver solutions neutralize viruses like Arenavirus and Filovirus, both of which are related to Ebola.

Interestingly, the research was conducted with the backing of the DOD's Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) and the U.S. Strategic Command Center for Combating Weapons of Mass Destruction. The presentation was given by researchers from the Applied Biotechnology Branch, 711th Human Performance Wing of the Air Force Research Laboratory.

But not a single mainstream media outlet reported on the presentation, and to this day its findings have been largely ignored by establishment health authorities. Sadly, this political quagmire -- nanosilver is an obvious threat to pharmaceutical interests, and thus is being marginalized -- is resulting in thousands of needless deaths in West Africa with no end in sight.

Contact your representatives and demand that nanosilver be used in Africa

NSF is calling on 10 million people to write their representatives and demand that clinical trials be conducted on nanosilver in Africa. The group says doctors and nurses need nanosilver to protect themselves, and patients need it to overcome the disease. Recommended dosages for each application are available at the following link; at the bottom of this page, you can also contact your representatives by inputting your zip code:
SalsaLabs.com.

When Duncan arrived in the U.S., he was not symptomatic. In other words, Duncan was asymptomatic, meaning that even though he was not actively manifesting symptoms, he was still contagious.

A public service post:

In reading this thread, I have concluded that there is no freaking way to make everyone happy.

If I do commentary on what I think is going on, I am called a doom and gloomer, and the evidence that I post to support my positions gets lost in the debate. If I simply present the research, than I am told that I am just copying and pasting without any contribution of my own.

There's no way to reconcile with those who just assume I am a "anti-government whackadoodle", and the evidence to support my point of view that the government is orchestrating all of this becomes lost.

This is a public service post, evidence has been presented as to how this all originated, what the agenda is, and what the most likely outcome is, along with multiple viable ways of dealing with it.

That is the purpose of this post, and I am playing by the rules.

Since the doctors have only demonstrated an ability to impugn the messengers, without giving any serious discussion to the evidence,  a discerning person has no choice but to ignore them.

If you prefer to stick your head in sand and not look, and  assume that “this too shall pass”,or worse, “the government has this all under control, and will take care of us”, without actually considering doing anything to protect yourself, then you have no choice but to ignore me.

But for those who are seeking knowledge, and wish to prepare for what is unfolding,

in my opinion, I've done my best to pass along what I have learned.  I have every intention of surviving this, to assume that “the end of the great Keynesian experiment” will make us wealthy beyond our wildest dreams without considering the obstacles between here and there will get you killed.

I have done my best via this website to impart my knowledge on how to not only survive, but to thrive through what is now inevitable.

The ball is now in your court.
