“AIDS is not an efficient killer because it is too slow. 
My favorite candidate for eliminating 90 percent of the world’s population is airborne Ebola
because it is both highly lethal and it kills in days, instead of years. 
We’ve got airborne diseases with 90 percent mortality in humans. Killing humans. Think about that. You know, the bird flu’s good, too. For everyone who survives, he will have to bury nine”

ebola

- 82% of Ebola patients are being turned away from hospitals to die at home, spreading infections to family members (Natural News, Sep 29, 2014):

A lack of available hospital beds in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, the three countries at the epicenter of the worst Ebola outbreak in history, is leaving many families with nowhere to take their sick and dying. More than 80 percent of Ebola patients, in fact, are being turned away from hospitals and sent back home, where they continue to spread the disease to family members, friends and others in the community.

A major shortage of beds and healthcare workers throughout the region has created an every-man-for-himself situation in which infected folks are having to basically fend for themselves. This is a worst-case scenario for containing the disease, as most of its spread is believed to occur when Ebola patients return home and try to hide their disease from everyone else, quietly spreading it in the process.

Vaccine-Vile-Syringe-Shot

- Experimental Ebola vaccine to be injected into humans en masse beginning this January: WHO (Natural News, Sep 29, 2014):

The United Nations isn’t letting a good crisis go to waste, having recently endorsed the use of untested, experimental Ebola vaccines being rushed to market as this is typed. Agence France-Presse reports that the vaccines, which are bypassing the normal testing and approval process, should be ready in bulk by early 2015 for use in West Africa.

Two vaccines in particular, one manufactured by British drug giant GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and the other by U.S.-based NewLink Genetics, are being accelerated through clinical trials, according to World Health Organization (WHO) Assistant Director General Marie-Paule Kieny. If all goes as planned, the jabs will be available to health workers as early as November. Continue reading »

Scientists allege deadly diseases such as Ebola and AIDS are bio weapons being tested on Africans

- ‘Dark zones’ in GMO technology research allow secret development of deadly bioweapons (Natural News, Sep 29, 2014):

New evidence has emerged to suggest that genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are a key factor in the spread of deadly pathogens like Ebola. The current Ebola outbreak appears to be a direct product of what former Soviet microbiologist Dr. Ken Alibekov calls “dark zones” in GMO technology that allow pathogens to be deliberately weaponized to harm humans.

Dating back to the 1970s, the U.S. government has been involved in covert bioweaponry programs that involved deliberately creating “AIDS-like viruses” to be used during warfare, according to a prominent professor of plant pathology. One such virus is Ebola, a manufactured bioweapon patented and owned by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the vaccine license rights of which are owned by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

The CDC patent for Ebola can be viewed here:
Google.com.

Dr. Cyril Broderick, formerly of the University of Liberia’s College of Agriculture and Forestry but now teaching at Delaware State University, cites Dr. Leonard Horowitz’s book Emerging Viruses: AIDS and Ebola — Nature, Accident or Intentional? to make the claim that the U.S. government has actually been testing its manufactured bioweapons on Africans for many decades, under the guise of promoting vaccines and “public health.”

Eggplant-Farm-Crop-Vine

- Bangladesh government admits Bt eggplant hasn’t passed safety tests and ignores GMO labeling law (Natural News, Sep 29, 2014):

The director of a government testing agency in Bangladesh that granted approval for genetically modified (GM) Bt eggplant (brinjal), which turned out to be a total failure, exploded recently after being questioned about the safety of the “Frankencrop.” Dr. Rafiqul Islam Mondal* from the Bangladesh Agricultural Research Institute (BARI) angrily told a room full of reporters and farmers that, if they are so concerned about the safety of Bt brinjal, they should conduct their own safety research on the plant.

BARI insists that Bt brinjal does not harm humans, the environment or biodiversity. But the organization never actually tested the crop to see if any of this is true, a fact that ended up sparking a lively debate at a recent news conference. BARI had intended to use the conference as a platform to assert the safety of Bt brinjal, as well as defend its decision to approve it. Instead, its director ended up having a full-on meltdown when the public relations scheme didn’t go as planned. Continue reading »

Sierra-Leone-Town-Quarantine-Tape

- Sierra Leone announces indefinite citizen lockdown: two million people forced into endless quarantine as food prices skyrocket (Natural News, Sep 26, 2014):

High-density population areas of Sierra Leone have just been locked down in the largest pandemic quarantine in history, and it’s already causing a collapse of the food delivery infrastructure. The local government says forced isolation orders will remain in effect until Ebola is eradicated. This essentially means that millions of people are now under a state of military quarantine until they either become immune to Ebola or die from it.

“President Ernest Bai Koroma put Port Loko, Bombali, and Moyamba districts under isolation with immediate effect, allowing only people delivering essential services to enter and circulate within these areas,” reports Associated Press. [1] “The restrictions will remain in place until the chain of transmission is broken, officials said.” Continue reading »

- Healthy 12-year-old girl dies shortly after receiving HPV vaccine (Natural News, Sep 26, 2014):

Another young girl has died from Gardasil, the infamous HPV vaccine manufactured by Merck & Co., and the medical establishment claims that it was a fluke. Twelve-year-old Meredith Prohaska from Waukesha, Wisconsin, died just a few hours after getting her Gardasil shot, and her parents are sure that the vaccine was the cause of death.

According to FOX6Now.com, Meredith was an otherwise healthy, fun-loving girl prior to her death. She did have a sore throat the day that she died, which is why her parents took her to the doctor in the first place. But it was a minor ailment that, in light of the events of that fateful day, couldn’t possibly have killed her that quickly or coincidentally. Continue reading »

- CDC “Taking Precautions In US”, Fears 1.4 Million Africa Ebola Cases By January (ZeroHedge, Sep 23, 2014):

While WHO Director Thomas Frieden’s “gut” says the worst-case scenario won’t come to pass (thanks to the actions that are being taken), the CDC is about to release its Ebola-epidemic scenario tool that suggests up to 1.4 million infections by mid-January. As The NY Times reports, these figures take into account the fact that many cases go undetected, and estimate that there are actually 2.5 times as many as reported. In the best-case model, the epidemic in both countries would be “almost ended” by Jan. 20, the report said. Perhaps more worrying is the WHO report also, for the first time, raised the possibility that the disease would not be stopped but would become endemic in West Africa, meaning that it could become a constant presence there. Aid group Samaritan’s Purse is gravely concerned at the spread of the disease, fearing “it’s too late. Nobody’s going to build 100,000 beds.”

Yet another set of ominous projections about the Ebola epidemic in West Africa was released Tuesday, in a report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that gave worst- and best-case estimates for Liberia and Sierra Leone based on computer modeling. Continue reading »

Gas-Mask-Man-Putting-On-Hands

- Scientists warn Ebola transmission may be airborne; urge full respirators for frontline health workers (Natural News, Sep 23, 2014):

With so many questions still remaining as to how folks like Dr. Rick Sacra, who never even treated Ebola patients, somehow managed to contract the supposedly non-airborne disease, the University of Minnesota’s Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy (CIDRAP) has issued new guidelines recommending that all front-line health workers be outfitted with full respirators, a recommendation which suggests that Ebola could very well have gone airborne.

In a recent commentary, Drs. Lisa M. Brosseau, Sc.D., and Rachael Jones, Ph.D., make the case for respirators, not just face masks, as necessary equipment in the fight against Ebola. Recommending the precautionary approach in such a serious matter, the duo says that, just because it hasn’t been confirmed that Ebola can transfer through the air doesn’t mean that it shouldn’t be treated as such, especially when people’s lives are on the line.

- Ebola death camps unveiled in Liberia; disease victims to be rounded up and removed from their own homes by force (Natural News, Sep 23, 2014):

According to the Washington Post [1], the World Health Organization has announced a program which would round up Ebola victims across Liberia and herd them into “Ebola death camps” in order to isolate them from their families.

Although they aren’t called “Ebola death camps” — the sweet-sounding public name for the facilities is “community care centers” — their purpose is “to move infected people out of their homes and into ad hoc centers that will provide rudimentary care,” says the Post. Continue reading »

- It’s all scripted! Ebola outbreak and impossibly rapid vaccine response clearly scripted; U.S. govt. patented Ebola in 2010 and now owns all victims’ blood (Natural News, Sep 19, 2014):

On the very same day that vaccine maker GlaxoSmithKline is being fined $490 million by Chinese authorities for running an illegal bribery scheme across China [3], the media is announcing the “astonishing” launch of human trials for an Ebola vaccine.

Care to guess who will be manufacturing this vaccine once it is whitewashed and rubber-stamped as “approved?” GlaxoSmithKline, of course. The same company that also admitted to a massive criminal bribery network in the United States, where felony crimes were routinely committed to funnel money to over 40,000 physicians who pushed dangerous prescription drugs onto patients.

This is the company that is now — today! — injecting 60 “volunteers” with an experimental Ebola vaccine. Continue reading »

- Exponential: Ebola Cases Now Double Every 3 Weeks; CDC Warns As Many As Half A Million May Be Infected Soon (ZeroHedge, Sep 19, 2014):

Since the start of the outbreak, the Ebola virus has infected 5,357 people, killing 2,630, according to the WHO; and as The UN explains, the outbreak is the largest the world has ever seen with the number of cases is doubling every three weeks. As Sierra Leone instigates a 3-day nationwide shutdown to contain the deadly virus, the UN Secretary-General explains “Ebola matters to us all,” as we noted previously the odds of the infection coming to America is around 18% by year-end. The CDC, however, hot on the heels of the UN’s proclamation that “the gravity and scale of the situation now require an unprecedented level of international action,” has warned that unless government intervention is increased significantly, 550,000 people could be infected by the end of January. “Contained?”

It has to be considered that the consequences of global panic in response to full public knowledge the horrific Fukushima event are so dire that corporate media outlets have been instructed not to cover it.  Instead, we get bizarre reports on MH-370, MH-17, the Ebola virus, Israeli war on Gaza, Impeaching Obama,…on and on.

- Obama To Send 3,000 Ebola-Fighting Boots-On-The-Ground To Africa; CDC Warns America “Now Is The Time To Prepare” (ZeroHedge, Sep 16, 2014):

On the heels of yesterday’s almost unbelievable forecasts of the exponential rise in Ebola case counts – and warnings of a 20% chance of Ebola reaching the USA by year-end, WHO officials have confirmed that their previous forecasts of 20,000 cases “does not seem like a lot today.” This has, according to Reuters, the United States announced on Tuesday that it would send 3,000 troops to help tackle the Ebola outbreak as part of a ramped-up response including a major deployment in Liberia, the country where the epidemic is spiralling fastest out of control. Perhaps even more worrisome – for those who explained how ‘contained’ Ebola was – is the CDC’s release of an Ebola checklist warning American healthcare workers “now is the time to prepare.”

- Dengue fever outbreak spreads in Japan – just in time for GM mosquitoes and experimental vaccines (Natural News, Sep 15, 2014):

Dozens of people in Japan have contracted a potentially deadly illness that hasn’t been seen in the country for nearly 70 years. Reports indicate that visitors to Yoyogi Park, one of Tokyo’s most popular leisure spots, have been falling ill with dengue fever, a mosquito-transmitted illness that mostly occurs in the more tropical regions of Southeast Asia but now appears to be on the move.

Local officials closed the park after some 55 people, according to USA Today, fell ill with the disease, which can lead to severe fever, joint pain and chronic headaches. In more extreme cases, dengue can cause persistent bleeding that, in a worst-case scenario, results in death.

As the Ebola virus continues to spread in West Africa, health institutes, activist groups, medical volunteers and philanthropists are doing what they can to “help” not only contain the deadly disease but to stamp it out as well.

One of those philanthropy groups is the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, which has stepped up to donate $50 million in emergency funds to the effort, the most the organization has ever made in response to a health emergency. It follows a report from researchers at Oxford University that the virus could eventually be spread by wildlife to 22 African countries.

- Steve Jobs Was a Low-Tech Parent (New York Times, Sep 10, 2014):

When Steve Jobs was running Apple, he was known to call journalists to either pat them on the back for a recent article or, more often than not, explain how they got it wrong. I was on the receiving end of a few of those calls. But nothing shocked me more than something Mr. Jobs said to me in late 2010 after he had finished chewing me out for something I had written about an iPad shortcoming.

“So, your kids must love the iPad?” I asked Mr. Jobs, trying to change the subject. The company’s first tablet was just hitting the shelves. “They haven’t used it,” he told me. “We limit how much technology our kids use at home.”

I’m sure I responded with a gasp and dumbfounded silence. I had imagined the Jobs’s household was like a nerd’s paradise: that the walls were giant touch screens, the dining table was made from tiles of iPads and that iPods were handed out to guests like chocolates on a pillow.

Nope, Mr. Jobs told me, not even close.

Since then, I’ve met a number of technology chief executives and venture capitalists who say similar things: they strictly limit their children’s screen time, often banning all gadgets on school nights, and allocating ascetic time limits on weekends.

I was perplexed by this parenting style. After all, most parents seem to take the opposite approach, letting their children bathe in the glow of tablets, smartphones and computers, day and night.

Yet these tech C.E.O.’s seem to know something that the rest of us don’t. Continue reading »

The rapid explosion of mystery virus EV-D68 is sending hundreds of children to hospitals across Missouri, Colorado, Kansas, Utah and eight other states. “In Kansas City, about 475 children were recently treated at Children’s Mercy Hospital, and at least 60 of them received intensive hospitalization,” reports CNN.

CNN goes on to report:

“It’s worse in terms of scope of critically ill children who require intensive care. I would call it unprecedented. I’ve practiced for 30 years in pediatrics, and I’ve never seen anything quite like this,” said Dr. Mary Anne Jackson, the hospital’s division director for infectious diseases.

The current Ebola outbreak in West Africa is distinctly different from any over the last 40 years, several public health officials said Monday, making it far more challenging to control.

As of Friday, 3,944 people had been confirmed infected with Ebola in Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Nigeria and Senegal since December, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), which has admitted that it is likely under-counting cases. More than half of the victims have died.

Toxic trail: Forgotten vials of ricin and plague discovered at US govt lab  (RT, Sep 6, 2014):

Infectious, deadly diseases and toxins like plague, botulism and ricin have been uncovered at government laboratories in the United States. The discovery also revealed some of the vials had been stored for over 60 years.

The revelations come after officials from the National Institute of Health (NIH) made a sweep of government owned laboratories in July after they found smallpox. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) also admitted it had found vials at a lab at the Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition.

Worryingly, inspectors also uncovered toxins and viruses, which had been lying around since 1954, with staff ignorant of the fact. The NIH said the discoveries were made between July 29 and August 27. The information was only made public on Friday. Continue reading »
