A global outbreak of deadly
Ebola is underway and has crossed
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.
"Expert claims panic over death of
U.S. man in Nigeria is 'justified'" reports the Daily Mail.

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.
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
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.
"Hemorrhaging 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
That same publication also explains,
"There are no known antiviral
treatments available 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
And yet medical staff around the world
still aren't exercising sufficient precautions when interfacing with
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.
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

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

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,
...have repeatedly played up the
severity of disease outbreaks in order to promote sales of treatment
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
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
It all starts with these irrefutable
facts about air travel:
All passengers are confined to
the same enclosed space.
All passengers are breathing THE
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).
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.
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
And it could circle the globe in less
than 48 hours.
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." (8)
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
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
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."
family members quarantined in Texas
A U.S. doctor named Dr. Kent Brantly has reportedly
"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.
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 SHTFplan.com 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
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?
There's no sense in causing a panic when
half the people won't survive an outbreak anyway, they figure.
bioweapon against humanity?
I also need to make you urgently aware that Ebola is a "perfect"
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: (8)
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
In the United States, for example,
people can literally walk right through our Southern open borders
with zero security whatsoever.
is an open invitation for bioweapons 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.
