    Obama Doing Nothing to Protect America from Ebola Outbreak

    Obama Doing Nothing to Protect America from Ebola Outbreak

    Several countries in West Africa, Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea, are reporting the worst Ebola virus outbreak in history. Over 700 people have died and the virus is still spreading.
    So how much do you know about the Ebola virus and what are the chances of it spreading into the US?

    There are five different viruses that cause Ebola virus disease. According to the World Health Organization:

    • Ebola virus disease (EVD), formerly known as Ebola haemorrhagic fever, is a severe, often fatal illness in humans.
    • EVD outbreaks have a case fatality rate of up to 90%.
    • EVD outbreaks occur primarily in remote villages in Central and West Africa, near tropical rainforests.
    • The virus is transmitted to people from wild animals and spreads in the human population through human-to-human transmission.
    • Fruit bats of the Pteropodidae family are considered to be the natural host of the Ebola virus.
    • Severely ill patients require intensive supportive care. No licensed specific treatment or vaccine is available for use in people or animals.

    The CDC has informed the airline industry to be on the watch for anyone with flu-like symptoms. They’ve also alerted Customs and Border Patrol to watch for people who may exhibit symptoms of EVD.
    In case you’re wondering, the symptoms are:
    “EVD is a severe acute viral illness often characterized by the sudden onset of fever, intense weakness, muscle pain, headache and sore throat. This is followed by vomiting, diarrhea, rash, impaired kidney and liver function, and in some cases, both internal and external bleeding. Laboratory findings include low white blood cell and platelet counts and elevated liver enzymes.”
    “People are infectious as long as their blood and secretions contain the virus. Ebola virus was isolated from semen 61 days after onset of illness in a man who was infected in a laboratory.”

    “The incubation period, that is, the time interval from infection with the virus to onset of symptoms, is 2 to 21 days.”
    Is there a danger of Ebola entering the US and spreading? Most definitely! All it takes is for one infected person to enter the country and then come in contact with others. EVD is spread through contact with bodily fluids which could include saliva, blood, urine, feces, tears and even nasal mucus. An infected person could transmit the disease simply by coughing or sneezing on someone.
    Consider the fact that some of the illegals that have been detained by Border Patrol agents have come from the same West African nations where the outbreak is occurring. Illegals have already been found to carry other infectious diseases such as TB and dengue fever and some Border Patrol agents have already tested positive for TB just by processing the illegals.
    On the news today they said the chances of EVD spreading into the US are remote, but this is the same liberal news that ignores the seriousness of the border crisis and the other dangerous diseases already being transmitted by infected illegals. It would only take one infected illegal from West Africa to spread the disease into the US. There is no cure and the fatality rate can be as high as 90%.
    Many illegals tend to congregate together, making the spread of Ebola more likely. They’ll shop in the same stores you and I shop in. All they have to do is cough or sneeze and then touch anything in the store to infect someone else. The danger is real.
    Yet, Barack Obama is not taking any steps to further secure our border with Mexico, knowing that thousands of illegals pour in every day. The fear of deadly diseases is not enough for him to take the proper action to secure the border and protect Americans. Obama doesn’t care about your health or the health of your family. All he cares about is allowing thousands more illegals into the US so they can vote for Democrats. He is risking our health and lives for the sake of votes. I don’t wish anyone to get infected with the Ebola virus, but if it happens, I hope it strikes the White House first. Then perhaps Obama may think differently and do what he should be already doing to protect the country.

    Why is military prepping for biological attack?
    Ebola detection units distributed to all 50 states

    EBOLA Detection Kits Deployed to National Guard Units In All 50 States


    Published on Apr 11, 2014
    On April 8th Congress was informed by the the Department of Defense [DoD] that because of emerging threats JBAIDS hemorrhagic fever assays have been deployed to National Guard units of all 50 States.

    . "By partnering with the U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command and the Food and Drug Administration, we have made accessible additional diagnostic assays for high
    consequence, low probability biological threat agents for use during declared public
    health emergencies. This collaboration has facilitated the availability of viral hemorrhagic fever diagnostic assays for use during a declared emergency and adds
    previously unavailable preparedness capabilities to this fielded system...
    ......To address the need for a near term capability to combat emerging threat materials,
    we have already provided Domestic Response Capability kits to the National Guard weapons of mass destruction civil support teams resident in all 50 states. These
    kits provide emerging threat mitigation capability that includes detection, personnel
    protection, and decontamination."

    It is unclear how real or imminent the threat may be, but it is clear that a massive surge of Governmental spending and preparedness has occurred since Hemorrhagic H7N9 Bird Flu came on the scene in 2013 and those preparedness activities are accelerating as EBOLA has started to gain momentum in Africa. (see links below)

    There are multiple vignettes one could put forth for these governmental activities ranging from simple wasteful defense spending to airborne mutated EBOLA, or an expected biological first strike prelude to WW3. The preparations seem to lean towards the latter.

    Rather than worry about the situation, the best course of action is be aware of the unusual military equipment which would be utilized in a defense situation, as such information will provide leading edge risk mitigation actionable information to threats that may result in mass panic or mass quarantine.

    In that regard, spotting the field use of the biomedical equipment shown below is an extremely strong indicator that a Biodefense operation is underway. Pay special attention to the JBAIDS device shown below, its presence at any medical or field facility is prima facie evidence of a high risk medical event of disastrous proportion. For mobile applications the JBAIDS device is carried in the Bio sampling vehicles shown below.

    Ebola Quarantine Stations Established in El Paso, Los Angeles and 18 Other Cities

    Dean Garrison 1 hour ago

    I have an idea. Let's bring Ebola here instead of worrying about it coming here unexpectedly. If we are going to put 300 million people in jeopardy, it should be our choice to do so rather than having it come as a surprise.

    By now you have surely heard that at least one patient is set to arrive for treatment at a hospital in Atlanta, Georgia. I am seeing reports today that it might actually be two patients, and who says they will stop there?
    Does anyone see anything wrong with this?
    Anyone at all?
    A few days ago, Dave Hodges reported that the CDC is quietly setting up Ebola Quarantine Stations across the U.S. I took a lot of flack for running that article on my website. As usual, I was called a conspiracy theorist who was trying to scare people.
    Am I trying to scare you?
    Yes I am. I have never denied that I try to scare people because something has to be done to awaken people from their stupor. We can scare you with facts just as easily as fantasy because things really are that bad. Not only is Ebola set to arrive voluntarily in the U.S. at any time, now we are starting to see evidence of those stations (he called them "centers") that Dave was talking about.
    A local CBS affiliate in Los Angeles is reporting:
    The Centers for Disease Control have established a quarantine station at LAX to prevent the spread of the deadly Ebola virus from passengers coming off international flights.

    The CDC is warning Americans to avoid the Ebola-ravaged nations of Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea where more than 700 people have died.

    Tom Bradley International Terminal now has a CDC quarantine station where health officials will determine whether a sick person getting off an international flight can enter the country.

    "We're fairly comfortable that if a patient were identified here in the U.S. , that the normal kinds of barrier nursing precautions that would be in place would prevent spread even before the person would be confirmed to be a case of Ebola," Dr. Stephan Monroe said.

    Two American aid workers have been infected with the virus in Liberia.
    All of this seems perfectly logical except for the fact that we are bringing this disease to America. We aren't just preparing for the worst. We are bringing it here. Has that started to sink in yet? As for the American aid workers that are mentioned, as well as the doctors and nurses who have become infected, do you not think that precautions were taken in these instances?
    Ebola is not something that one invites into their living room., an ABC affiliate, is reporting that El Paso, Texas has also been chosen as a "quarantine station":
    The Centers for Disease Control has designated El Paso as one of 20 quarantine stations for the ebola virus.

    The Sun City is part of a comprehensive system designed to prevent the spread of the disease in the United States.

    While ebola has never been detected in the U.S., that doesn't mean it can't make its way to the country. The biggest concern is at airports with international flights and ports of entry, which there are a lot of in the Borderland.

    "It's a scary virus … Definitely," said Dr. Hector Ocaranza, the health authority for the El Paso City/County Health Department. "Terribly deadly. It's one of those viral hemorragic fevers. They haven't found where it's coming from, if it's coming from an animal to the human or what. But we know there is human tissue transmission."

    That means it cannot be contracted like the flu, through the air. It can only be spread by direct contact with bodily fluids like saliva or secretions.

    The CDC released a map showing the 20 quarantine stations designated across the country, including El Paso, mostly where international travelers arrive. The closest ones are in San Diego and Dallas.
    The CDC website seems to be suffering from some issues today that might be caused by heavy traffic. The navigation is off and I have not been able to download the map or even see it. However, I can tell you that San Francisco and Houston are mentioned as quarantine stations as well. I also temporarily found an East Coast map but the page crashed. Is Michelle Obama's schoolmate in charge of this site as well?
    Again, all of this would make sense as being precautionary if we were not allowing illegal aliens, with dangerous diseases, into this country, and if we were not willingly endangering the lives of people by bringing Ebola to America.
    Why use the back door when the front door works just fine?
    This is either incredibly stupid or it is part of the plan.
    Either way America is now playing with fire.

    Health Officials: No Ebola Outbreak in U.S., but We're Prepping Anyway

    CDC and WHO are trying to contain the outbreak in West Africa and are ready if it hits the U.S., where one case has been confirmed.

    Doctors put on protective gear at a hospital in Guinea, where ebola victims are being treated. The virus is not a threat to the U.S., and would not spread if it were found here, officials say.

    By Kimberly LeonardJuly 31, 2014 | 6:46 p.m. EDT+ More

    The risk of an Ebola outbreak in the U.S. is unlikely, but health officials say they are responding anyway, sending advisories to hospitals, preparing to quarantine those who may have been infected, discouraging travel to certain countries and pouring funds into West Africa to contain the outbreak.

    In a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention press briefing Thursday, Dr. Tom Frieden, director of the agency, says 50 staff members, including health communications experts and epidemiologists, are being sent to affected areas. While he stresses the virus shows little threat to the U.S., he says it is worsening in West Africa. "This is the largest most complex [Ebola] outbreak that we know if in history," he says, adding that it may take as much as six months to contain.

    Only a few hours after the CDC briefing, Emory University, in conjunction with the CDC, released a statement saying it is preparing to treat the first Ebola patient here in the United States. Staff members at Emory Hospital in Atlanta, where the CDC is headquartered, were not able to confirm the identity or current whereabouts of the patient, or when the patient would arrive, but said he or she will be treated in an isolation unit.

    The West African nations affected by the Ebola outbreak are plagued by violence and have weak, scarce health care systems. Fruit bats are considered by the World Health Organization to be the host of the virus, which can also infect monkeys, gorillas, chimpanzees, antelope and porcupines – animals with which some West Africans have frequent contact through hunting and handling infected, raw meat. During this particular outbreak, however, WHO says Ebola has spread mostly from human to human. It has swept Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, killing 729 people as of July 31.

    According to Frieden, about 10,000 people in the past three to four months have traveled from these countries to the U.S. – a number he says is tiny. Rep. Alan Grayson, D-Fla., requested a travel ban in a Tuesday letter to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson and Secretary of State John Kerry.

    [READ: Congressman: Close Border to Ebola Countries.]

    News of the disease caught the public's attention when Dr. Sheik Humarr Khan, who has been lauded as national hero for treating the disease in Sierra Leone, died Tuesday while quarantined in a hospital.

    Though it is not spread as easily as airborne diseases, like the flu, Ebola's fatality levels can be as high as 90 percent.

    There is no specific treatment for Ebola, and the National Institutes of Health will not be entering trial stages for a new vaccine until the fall.

    Doctors and nurses help control patients' dehydration through intravenous fluids and keep them isolated from others. The virus spreads through direct contact of bodily fluids like saliva, sweat, stool, blood, urine and semen. It also can spread when the virus touches clothing, bed linen or needles, according to WHO. A person who is buried after dying of the disease is still contagious, and anyone who has contact with the corpse can get the virus.

    CDC officials say they are confident that there will be no significant spread of Ebola in the United States even if the virus is found here.

    "Any hospital with an intensive care unit has the chance to isolate patients," Frieden says. The CDC this week sent an advisory about Ebola to state and local health departments, says Jennifer Schleman, a spokeswoman for the American Hospital Association. "Hospitals coordinate closely with their public health departments to monitor and respond to these situations," she says. "As part of their 24/7 standby role, every hospital has an emergency plan that they regularly exercise and update. When there is a greater risk, hospitals increase their surveillance for signs of symptoms associated with the specific disease."

    If a patient comes into a hospital with a fever and has traveled to West Africa recently, the CDC recommends immediate quarantine, contacting local health officials and the CDC, and carrying out rapid testing, Frieden says. Other signs of infection are headache, joint and muscle aches, diarrhea and vomiting; it takes anywhere from two to 21 days from the time of infection for a person to show symptoms of the disease. Someone who is infected but does not yet have symptoms is not yet contagious, health officials say.

    Stopping an outbreak is possible, "but it takes meticulous work," Frieden says. "It's like putting out a forest fire."

    As of July 30, WHO has not recommended any travel restrictions or closing orders, though some organizations, like the Peace Corps, have withdrawn personnel from some areas. "It is highly unlikely that someone suffering such symptoms would feel well enough to travel," says a press release from the International Air Transport Association.

    The CDC recommends at this time avoiding all nonessential travel to Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone so that it can begin to contain the disease there. It issued a "Level 3" warning, which indicates a high risk to people who travel to those countries. "We're not telling people who are essential to leave," Frieden says, referring to state department officials and health care workers. "We want to support the countries in terms of their ability to control the disease."

    Direct flights from affected countries to the United States are connected through Houston, Atlanta and New York.​ If a patient is ill on a plane, the CDC is called to assess the condition, and if appropriate will track or trace the people around them on the plane, Frieden says.

    The president of Sierra Leone has declared a state of emergency, and WHO has pledged $100 million to help bring the outbreak under control.

    "It will not be quick or easy but we do know how to stop Ebola," Frieden says. "This is a marathon, not a sprint."
    Sierra Leone's Top Ebola Doctor Dies From Virus

    The doctor leading Sierra Leone's fight against the worst Ebola outbreak on record died from the virus on Tuesday, the country's chief medical officer said. The death of Sheik Umar Khan, who was credited with...

    Ebola Outbreak 'Not in the Cards' for U.S., CDC Director Says


    International health experts are preparing to “surge” into West Africa to fight the raging outbreak of Ebola virus, and say they are confident they can keep it from spreading to countries like the United States and eventually stamp it out.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention stepped up a travel alert for West Africa Thursday, saying nonessential people should put off travel there for now. But CDC director Dr. Thomas Frieden said that was more to keep people out of the way of emergency work than to prevent the spread of Ebola.

    “It is not a potential of Ebola spreading widely in the U.S. That is not in the cards,” Frieden told reporters on a conference call. “We are not telling people who are essential to leave.”
    CDC Issues Highest-Level Travel Warning as Ebola Spreads
    Ebola has infected 1,323 people and killed 729 people in the current outbreak, which spans Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone.

    The World Health Organization says it is still out of control in some places and announced a $100 million plan Thursday for stepping up efforts against it.

    As part of the plan, CDC will send 50 people to the region over the next month, Frieden said.

    “This is a tragic, painful, dreadful, merciless virus. It is the largest, most complex outbreak that we know of in history,” Frieden said. “We at CDC are surging our response along with others. Although it will not be quick and it will not be easy, we do know how to stop Ebola.”
    “Although it will not be quick and it will not be easy, we do know how to stop Ebola."

    As for Ebola coming to the U.S., Frieden is not overly worried.

    “We have quarantine stations at all the major ports of entry,” he said. People cannot transmit Ebola to others unless they are sick, and Ebola makes you so sick that it’s pretty obvious pretty quickly, Frieden said. A traveler will be flagged by the flight crew and if someone gets sick after arrival in the U.S. they will almost certainly seek medical care.

    “Ebola poses little risk to the U.S. general population,” Frieden said. “Ebola is spread as people get sicker and sicker. They have fever and may develop serious symptoms.” Ebola doesn’t spread through the air like measles. People who get sick are family members or healthcare workers in prolonged and close contact with victims.

    Sierra Leone declares emergency after Ebola outbreak
    That's almost certainly how two Americans became infected. Dr. Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebol were caring for patients in a crowded, busy facility in Monrovia, Liberia when they were both infected. They're both now struggling for their own lives. Emory University Hospital in Atlanta said Thursday it waspreparing a special isolation unit to receive a patient with Ebola disease “within the next several days” but did not say whether the patient is one of the two Americans.

    “It’s not the common cold. It is not the flu. It really requires exposure to blood and bodily fluids,” said Dr. Amesh Adalja, an infectious disease physician at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and senior associate at the UPMC Center for Health Security.

    And basic hygiene at the emergency room door or in the clinic should prevent spread there. Any U.S. intensive care unit can do it, Frieden said. “We work actively to educate American health care workers,” he said. “There is nothing particularly special about the isolation of an Ebola patient, other than it is really important to do it right.”

    While hospitals in West Africa have become “amplification centers” for Ebola, that wouldn’t happen in a country with modern facilities, Frieden said. “We have strong systems to find people, if there is anyone with Ebola in the U.S. … to isolate them and to provide follow-up.”

    In Africa, CDC specialists will help set up emergency operations centers to help coordinate the response. Right now, health experts say they don’t even know where outbreaks are popping up until it’s almost too late. Having a command and control center gives experts a place to gather information and to coordinate decision-making and action.

    Ebola first emerged in 1976 and since then there have been two dozen outbreaks in Congo, Uganda, Gabon, Democratic Republic of Congo and Sudan. Public health experts know how to cope with it.

    “They will be able to implement the tried and true activities,” said Dr. Adalja. “There is no reason that is not going to work here.”
    “This is going to take at least three to six months, even if everything goes well.”

    That means painstaking work of identifying cases quickly, isolating the patients so they don’t infect anybody else, and tracking down everyone they were in close contact with to watch and make sure they don’t become infected. “That is what has stopped every Ebola outbreak that has ever happened before and that is what is going to stop this Ebola outbreak,” Frieden said.

    It also includes educating the public about Ebola. Ebola’s spread so badly in West Africa for several reasons: It’s never been seen there before so people don’t know what to expect and don’t understand how to stop its spread.

    In addition, the countries have very weak or even nonexistent health care facilities, so patients often cannot even be diagnosed, much less isolated or treated. Healthcare workers become infected as they struggle to treat cases. And because so few people in the three countries are familiar with outside medical practices, they are suspicious of strangers coming in, wearing protective gear and telling them what to do.

    So CDC, WHO and nonprofit groups must find local, trusted leaders to help them communicate the basics about the disease in a way that people will accept.

    CDC experts and state health officials have years of experience of tracking down people who have been in contact with patients who have a range of infectious diseases, from Lassa fever to MERS and measles.

    In fact, Lassa fever, which is similar to Ebola in many ways, is a good example of how the system does work, Adalaja said. “We have had eight importations of Lassa fever in the past few decades,” he said. “None of those cases ended up with any secondary cases. We were ready for them.”

    It will take a while to put out this fire, however, Frieden cautioned.

    “This is a marathon, not a sprint,” he said. “This is going to take at least three to six months, even if everything goes well.”

    You are more likely to die from Flesh Eating Bactria in the U.S.

    People in the U.S. have already died from flesh eating bacteria.

    No one in the U.S. has ebola, until the plane brings in the 2 Americans who caught it in Africa.

    The bacteria was responsible for at least 11 deaths in Florida last year.

    A media frenzy is underway regarding the recent Ebola outbreak now on American soil. Previously this incurable disease has been primarily confined to Africa, but it has now spread to Americans and it traveling by plan to all parts of the world.

    An Eerie Coincidence?

    A few weeks ago, I invited our entire readership to a special webinar on pandemic outbreak because of the plague being spread in Colorado by rodents. The fictional story at the beginning of my presentation, illustrating the severity of the potential outbreak is SHOCKINGLY similar to what is happening with Ebola and what we could expect to see here!

    David D'Eugenio put together a great article about what to expect from Ebola and it's origins.

    Read David's Article Here on >>

    Here's what you need to know about the Ebola outbreak today! -

    How many people have died? As of Sunday, the World Health Organization had confirmed 909 cases and 485 deaths in Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia and Nigeria. It suspects that there may have been up to 1,323 cases and 729 deaths. -

    "The outbreak is by far the largest ever in the nearly four-decade history of this disease," Chan said. "It is the largest in terms of numbers of cases and deaths. ... It is the largest in terms of geographical areas already affected and others at immediate risk of further spread." -

    CDC Director Tom Frieden said Thursday that it could take three to six months to stop the epidemic. -

    Why is it spreading so quickly? First of all, there's no vaccine for Ebola. So health officials have to stop the infection by isolating patients to prevent further transmission. -

    Past outbreaks have primarily occurred in rural areas, where people were not frequently traveling and infecting others. This outbreak has made it to several of the region's major cities, including Freetown, Sierra Leone; Monrovia, Liberia; and Conakry, Guinea. -

    These cities have international airports, which opens up the possibility of infected patients traveling abroad. For example, American Patrick Sawyer became infected with Ebola in Liberia and traveled via plane to Lagos, Nigeria, where he died. Health officials are still tracing all the people he came in contact with along the way. -

    This is not just being spread in the survival or conspiracy forums, this is in the mainstream media. Don't underestimate the seriousness of this threat!

    There are precautions you can take that I shared in the webinar including the only known killer for viruses with no side effects. I've made the replay available again for a short time for those who are not yet prepared to face this threat. We don't have much time left...

    Watch the webinar replay here >>

    If you want to skip the webinar and get your kit, here's the direct link >>

    This is something that you should share with others. Send them to the article and webinar replay page to help educate them on what they need to get ready.

    Talk Soon,

    P.S. Sorry I couldn't get this out to you earlier, but with this in the news I sent it as quickly as I could. Here are the 2 links again:

    How to Survive Ebola Virus

    By David D’Eugenio, Founder, Co-owner HomeSafety Academy
    The Ebola outbreak “is moving faster than our efforts to control it,” Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organization, said in a statement Friday. “This is an unprecedented outbreak accompanied by unprecedented challenges. And these challenges are extraordinary.”
    This is the first Ebola outbreak in West Africa and involves the most deadly strain in the Ebola virus family, Chan said.
    “If the situation continues to deteriorate, the consequences can be catastrophic in terms of lost lives but also severe socioeconomic disruption and a high risk of spread to other countries.” – As reported by

    A global outbreak of deadly Ebola is underway and has crossed national borders. One infected victim of the horrifying disease flew on international flights, vomiting on board and exposing hundreds of people to the deadly virus which can be transmitted through airborne particles. Ebola has an 8-10 day incubation period, meaning thousands of people could be carrying it right now and spreading it across the cities of the world without even knowing it.

    Passengers in Hong Kong and the UK have already shown symptoms of the disease and are being tested, reports USA Today. (2) The Peace Corps has evacuated its volunteers from the region after two were exposed to Ebola. (3)

    “Expert claims panic over death of U.S. man in Nigeria is ‘justified’” reports the Daily Mail. (1) “He warned the spread of Ebola could become a global pandemic.”

    Published on Jul 31, 2014
    CNN's Tom Foreman takes a virtual look at how an Ebola patient will be transported to the U.S. for medical care.

    Ebola is the closest thing to real-life zombie infections

    With apologies to those victims who have suffered the horrible fate of Ebola, I’m offering a medically accurate description here as a warning to everybody else. Believe me when I say you do NOT want to contract Ebola. Warning: Graphic language below.

    Ebola is a gruesome disease that causes cells in the body to self-destruct, resulting in massive internal and external bleeding. In its late stages, Ebola can cause the victim to experience convulsions, vomiting and bleeding from the eyes and ears while convulsing, flinging blood all over the room and anyone standing nearby, thereby infecting those people as well. This gruesome ending is the reason Ebola spreads so effectively. The virus “weaponizes” the blood, then causes the victim to fling it around on everyone else almost like you might see depicted in some horror zombie flick.

    “Haemorrhaging symptoms begin 4 – 5 days after onset, which includes hemorrhagic conjunctivitis, pharyngitis, bleeding gums, oral/lip ulceration, hematemesis, melena, hematuria, epistaxis, and vaginal bleeding,” reports the Pathogen Safety Data Sheet from the Public Health Agency of Canada. ( That same publication also explains, “There are no known antiviral treatments available for human infections.”

    Read that again: There are NO KNOWN TREATMENTS for human infections.

    Sierra Leone’s top Ebola doctor tragically died yesterday from an Ebola infection. Although well trained in infectious disease, even he underestimated the ability of this insidious killer to leap from person to person. Around half of those infected with Ebola die, making it one of the most fatal diseases known to modern medical science. And yet medical staff around the world still aren’t exercising sufficient precautions when interfacing with infected patients.

    Monsanto and Dept. of Defense help fund pharma company that could earn billions from Ebola treatment

    There are some experimental drugs under development by pharma companies that show some promise, but nothing is commercialized yet. (9)

    One fascinating development worth investigating further is that TEKMIRA Pharmaceuticals, a company working on an anti-Ebola drug, just received a $1.5 million cash infusion from none other than Monsanto. Click here to read the press release, which states “Tekmira Pharmaceuticals Corporation is a biopharmaceutical company focused on advancing novel RNAi therapeutics and providing its leading lipid nanoparticle (LNP) delivery technology to pharmaceutical partners.”

    The money from Monsanto is reportedly related to the company’s developed of RNAi technology used in agriculture. The deal is valued at up to $86.2 million, according to the WSJ. (11)

    Another press release about Tekmira reveals a $140 million contract with the U.S. military for Ebola treatment drugs:

    TKM-Ebola, an anti-Ebola virus RNAi therapeutic, is being developed under a $140 million contract with the U.S. Department of Defense’s Medical Countermeasure Systems BioDefense Therapeutics (MCS-BDTX) Joint Product Management Office.

    Additional Tekmira partnership are listed at this Tekmira web page.

    Not to invoke any charges of collusion or conspiracy here, but a whole lot of people are going to have raised eyebrows over the fact that Monsanto just happened to be giving a cash infusion to a key pharma company working on an Ebola cure right in the middle of a highly-publicized Ebola outbreak which could create huge market demand for the drugs. The fact that the U.S. Department of Defense is also involved with all this is going to have alternative news websites digging hard for additional links.

    Sadly, the history of medicine reveals that drug companies, the CDC and the WHO have repeatedly played up the severity of disease outbreaks in order to promote sales of treatment drugs. I’m not saying this outbreak isn’t very real and very alarming, of course. It is real. But we always have to be suspicious when windfalls profits just happen to line up for certain corporations following global outbreaks of infectious disease. Vaccine manufacturers, remember, made billions off the false swine flu scare, and tens of millions of dollars in stockpiled swine flu vaccines later had to be destroyed by the governments that panicked and purchased them.

    Has air travel doomed humanity to a pandemic outbreak?

    Air travel creates the “perfect storm” for Ebola to devastate humanity. It all starts with these irrefutable facts about air travel:

    1) All passengers are confined to the same enclosed space.

    2) All passengers are breathing THE SAME AIR.

    3) Ebola can become airborne via very small particles in the air, and just a single Ebola virus riding on a dust particle is sufficient to infect a human being (see below).

    4) Following the flight, infected passengers then intermingle with thousands of other people at the airport, each doing to a different unique destination somewhere else across the country or around the world.

    5) The speed of air travel vastly out-paces the speed of governments being able to deploy infectious disease prevention teams.

    A global pandemic wipeout from Ebola, in other words, could originate from a single person on a single international flight. And it could circle the globe in less than 48 hours.
    Just one organism is sufficient to infect a new host

    Just how much Ebola virus does it take to infect someone? Alarmingly, as the Public Health Agency of Canada explains, “1 – 10 aerosolized organisms are sufficient to cause infection in humans.” (

    Read that again: it takes just ONE aerosolized organism (a microscopic virus riding on a dust particle) to cause a full-blown infection in humans. This is why one man vomiting on an international flight can infect dozens or hundreds of other people all at once.

    Some experts fear that has already happened. As the Daily Mail reports: (1)

    Nigerian health officials are in the process of trying to trace 30,000 people, believed to be at risk of contracting the highly-infectious virus, following the death of Patrick Sawyer in Lagos. It comes as Nigerian actor Jim Lyke sparked outrage, posting a picture of himself wearing an Ebola mask while sitting in a first class airport lounge as he fled Liberia.

    Dave Hodges of The Commonsense Show reports: (7)

    A desperate search is on to find the hundreds of passengers who flew on the same jets as Sawyer. A total of 59 passengers and crew are estimated to have come into contact with Sawyer and effort is being made to track each individual down. There is an inherent problem with this “track down”. Presumably, some of the passengers connected to other flights, which known to be the case. Let’s just say for the sake of argument that only 20 people, a low estimate given the nature of the airports that Sawyer was traveling in, were connecting to other flights, the spread of the virus would quickly expand beyond any possibility of containment because in less than a half a day, nearly a half a million people would be potentially exposed. Within a matter of a couple of hours, Sawyer’s infected fellow travelers would each have made contact with 200 other passengers and crew. Hours later, these flights would land and these people would go home to the friends, families and coworkers across several continents.

    CBS News adds: (4)

    “Witnesses say Sawyer, a 40-year-old Liberian Finance Ministry employee en route to a conference in Nigeria, was vomiting and had diarrhea aboard at least one of his flights with some 50 other passengers aboard. Ebola can be contracted from traces of feces or vomit, experts say.”

    American family members quarantined in Texas

    A U.S. doctor named Dr. Kent Brantly has reportedly contracted Ebola. “Brantly and the couple’s 3- and 5-year-old children left Liberia for a scheduled visit to the United States on July 20. Days later, Kent Brantly quarantined himself in the isolation ward of a hospital where he had been treating Ebola patients after testing positive for the disease,” reports CBS News. (3)

    That same story goes on to say, “Amber Brantly and the children are in Abilene, Texas, under a 21-day fever watch,” which is essentially a quarantine. This means the necessary quarantine of American citizens on U.S. soil has already begun.

    Nobody is yet talking about what all this might mean if a large U.S. city shows an outbreak of infections. Will the federal government use the military to quarantine an entire city? Ultimately, it must! And make no mistake: this possibility is already written up and on the books for national emergencies. One declaration of martial law is all that’s required to seal off an entire U.S. city at gunpoint.

    Another CBS News article reports: (4)

    “If it gets into a big city, that’s everybody’s worse nightmare,” said Dr. Tim Geisbert, a professor of microbiology and immunology at University of Texas Medical Branch, in an interview with CBS News. “It gets harder to control then. How do you quarantine a big city?”

    The answer, by the way, is by deploying America’s armed forces against its own citizens in a domestic national emergency scenario. Everybody in the federal government already knows that. It’s only the mainstream media that pretends such plans don’t already exist.

    Ebola detection kits deployed to all 50 U.S. states

    Although the federal government’s official reaction to all this is low-key, in truth the U.S. government is rapidly preparing for the possibility of an Ebola outbreak reaching the continental USA.

    As reported above, the U.S. Department of Defense already has a $140 million contract awarded to Tekmira for its Ebola treatment drugs.

    Additionally, as reports: (5)

    The Department of Defense informed Congress that it has deployed biological diagnostic systems to National Guard support teams in all 50 states, according to a report published by the Committee on Armed Services. Some 340 Joint Biological Agent Identification and Diagnostic System (JBAIDS) units have thus far been given to emergency response personnel. The systems are “rapid, reliable, and [provide] simultaneous identification of specific biological agents and pathogens.”

    On one hand, we might all applaud the government’s preparedness actions in all this. It’s smart to have diagnostic systems deployed nationwide, of course. But it begs the question: When was the government planning on telling the public about all this? Probably never. There’s no sense in causing a panic when half the people won’t survive an outbreak anyway, they figure.

    The perfect bio-weapon against humanity?

    I also need to make you urgently aware that Ebola is a “perfect” bio-weapon. Because of its ability to survive storage and still function many days, weeks or years later, it could be very easily harvested from infected victims and then preserved using nothing more than a common food dehydrator.

    As the Public Health Agency of Canada explains: (

    The virus can survive in liquid or dried material for a number of days (23). Infectivity is found to be stable at room temperature or at 4 (C) for several days, and indefinitely stable at -70 C.

    To translate this into laymen’s terms, this means the Ebola virus can be:

    • Stored in a liquid vial and easily smuggled across international borders.

    • Dehydrated and stored in a dried state, then easily smuggled.

    • Frozen at very low temperatures where it remains viable indefinitely.

    Once dried, contained or frozen, Ebola pathogens can be smuggled into target countries with ridiculous ease. In the United States, for example, people can literally walk right through our Southern open borders with zero security whatsoever.

    Open borders is an open invitation for bio-weapons terrorism

    Once inside the target country, a bioweapons terrorist could then easily infect people in public transit hubs such as subway stations, airports, bus stations and so on. Unfortunately, spraying a few Ebola particles into people’s faces is ridiculously easy, especially if the terrorist carrying out the activities decides he is on a suicide mission and doesn’t care about self-exposure.

    An outbreak of Ebola in a major U.S. city would quite literally threaten the public health of the entire nation. That’s why an “open borders” policy in the middle of a global Ebola outbreak is unconscionable from the point of view of public health. CDC officials must be tearing their hair out over this issue.

    Think about it: America is a country where public health officials freak out and go crazy when two children acquire whooping cough in a public school in Maryland. But when tens of thousands of people are streaming into the country, unbounded, with near-zero medical scrutiny in the middle of an international Ebola outbreak, federal officials do almost nothing at all. If there is an Ebola outbreak in the U.S., this is most likely how it will arrive.

    WHO Won’t Recommend Screening Passengers From Ebola-Outbreak Regio

    by Fox News Insider // Aug 02 2014 // 4:32pm
    As seen on The Cost of Freedom

    The World Health Organization says it won’t recommend screening passengers traveling from Guinea, Liberia or Sierra Leone for Ebola.

    Some say it’s because it’s too costly.

    Ebola Patient Arrives at Emory University for Treatment

    Above, watch a panel debate this on “Bulls and Bears.” Read more from USA Today below.
    Sick people are urged not to travel. Because Ebola's incubation period is two to 21 days and early symptoms aren't specific, using thermal scanners to detect fevers is costly, unlikely to detect anyone infected with Ebola "and is not encouraged," according to the WHO.
    Health officials are monitoring the worst Ebola outbreak in history in consultation with the International Air Transport Association, which represents 240 airlines worldwide, and the International Civil Aviation Organization, a branch of the United Nations that sets policies.
    "Discussions are currently being held regarding travel and trade," said Leticia Linn, a WHO spokeswoman, and an update "will likely come next week."
    The Ebola outbreak has killed more than 700 people in West Africa and infected more than 1,300, according to the WHO.

    Ebola Patients Coming to the US: How Safe Are We?

    Ebola Patients to be Treated on US Soil

    NEXT VIDEO Health Officials Concerned Over Spread Of Ebola Outbreak


    Two Americans who are battling the deadly Ebola virus are being evacuated from Africa with the plan to fly them to U.S. hospitals to receive treatment.

    The patients, who both caught the disease while in Africa
    , will be transported in elaborate isolation chambers and receive treatment by medical staff in protective suits.

    Despite the precautions, fears about the incurable virus have spread well beyond Africa. And when the doctors are indeed brought to the U.S., it would be the first time that people with Ebola would be on American soil.

    "This concern about the introduction of Ebola and its possible spread in the United States has been an aspect of this story that has taken off and somewhat surprised those of us in infectious disease and public health," said Dr. William Shaffner, an infectious disease specialist at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine.

    "There are a number of reasons for that -- it’s a very very fatal virus, and this outbreak is the largest ever and it’s not controlled so that’s frightening. It’s exotic and mysterious coming from Africa, and now there are two American faces to it and in fact those American faces are coming home," he said.

    The patients, Nancy Writebol and Dr. Kent Brantly, will be transported one by one, sources told ABC News today.

    There are plans to transfer one of the patients to Emory University Hospital's special facility containment unit within the next several days, hospital officials said in a statement.

    Officials said the patient will arrive in Atlanta sometime next week. Where the other patient will be taken remains unclear.

    But the risk to the wider American public remains minimal, Shaffner explained.

    "Even if a case were imported into the US -- and here we’re bringing two people for hospital care -- that actually the risk for Americans is essentially zero," he said.

    The reason the risk is so small for the American public is that individuals who have Ebola only become contagious when they begin to show symptoms of the disease -- and then can only transfer it via bodily fluids such as blood, vomit, and urine.

    It does not spread through casual contact or by sharing the same air that an infected person is breathing.

    Thus if a person in America began to show symptoms, they would be quarantined immediately and anyone with whom they had close personal contact with would be monitored closely for any signs that they had become infected.

    Shaffner said he would feel comfortable sitting next to someone on a plane, in a taxi, or in a subway car even if the person was infected, which is incredibly unlikely.

    "The average citizen I think can watch this and be pleased that there is an alert clinical and public health response mechanism and be reassured that this viral infection is not going to establish itself in this country," Shaffner said.

    "We don’t have the environment that is conducive to this virus. We might get some imported cases, and God forbid it might spread to a healthcare worker but it would not spread further."
