Ebola And The Five Stages Of Collapse

Submitted by Dmitry Orlov via ClubOrlov blog,
At the moment, the Ebola virus is ravaging three countries – Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone – where it is doubling every few weeks, but singular cases and clusters of them are cropping up in dense population centers across the world. An entirely separate Ebola outbreak in the Congo appears to be contained, but illustrates an important point: even if the current outbreak (to which some are already referring as a pandemic) is brought under control, continuing deforestation and natural habitat destruction in the areas where the fruit bats that carry the virus live make future outbreaks quite likely.
Ebola’s mortality rate can be as high as 70%, but seems closer to 50% for the current major outbreak. This is significantly worse than the Bubonic plague, which killed off a third of Europe’s population. Previous Ebola outbreaks occurred in rural, isolated locales, where they quickly burned themselves out by infecting everyone within a certain radius, then running out of new victims. But the current outbreak has spread to large population centers with highly mobile populations, and the chances of such a spontaneous end to this outbreak seem to be pretty much nil.
Ebola has an incubation period of some three weeks during which patients remain asymptomatic and, specialists assure us, noninfectious. However, it is known that some patients remain asymptomatic throughout, in spite of having a strong inflammatory response, and can infect others. Nevertheless, we are told that those who do not present symptoms of Ebola – such as high fever, nausea, fatigue, bloody stool, bloody vomit, nose bleeds and other signs of hemorrhage – cannot infect others. We are also told that Ebola can only be spread through direct contact with the bodily fluids of an infected individual, but it is known that among pigs and monkeys Ebola can be spread through the air, and the possibility of catching it via a cough, a sneeze, a handrail or a toilet seat is impossible to discount entirely. It is notable that many of the medical staff who became infected did so in spite of wearing protective gear – face masks, gloves, goggles and body suits. In short, nothing will guarantee your survival short of donning a space suit or relocating to a space station.

China’s Own “Ebola” Claims Another 1826 Cases

While Ebola is getting all the headlines, China is dealing with “the worst outbreak in decades” of Dengue Fever. As ITAR-TASS reports, the outbreak of the mosquito-borne disease in China has killed six people and infected more than 27,200 according to Chinese health officials. Just today, the epidemic has infected 1,826 more people in the Guangdong Province alone. But it’s not just China, last month Malaysia reported that dengue fever deaths had more than tripled in 2014, while Japan recently saw its first outbreak in 70 years with many contracting the illness at Tokyo’s popular Yoyogi Park.
As ITAR-TASS reports,
An outbreak of mosquito-borne dengue fever in China has killed six people and infected more than 27,200, a Chinese health authority spokeswoman said on Thursday. Song Shuli, spokeswoman of the National Health and Family Planning Commission, said that this year witnessed an apparent increase of dengue cases with most of them found in China’s southern regions, including Guangdong, Fujian, Yunnan and Guangxi.
Unusually high temperatures and humid weather have contributed to a mosquito population in South China five times as high as normal, fuelling the outbreak, health officials said.
Spread by mosquitoes, the disease thrives in tropical mega cities thanks to rapid urbanization and population movement. Climate change is also a factor, giving rise to longer periods that infected mosquitos can survive.

California Water Regulators: Do As We Say, Not As We Do

It’s difficult not to have some sympathy for California homeowners in the middle of a scorching drought. Mike Soubirous (above) has a full acre of beautiful flowers, bushes, and trees that require watering to remain healthy, as can be seen here:
‘Conservation [of water] isn’t that simple… I don’t know how I can reduce my water rate,’ he said. I feel your pain Mike…or maybe not. Soubirous sits on the Riverside City Council which unanimously voted this past summer to implement strict new water restrictions in reaction to the drought.
Around the state, politicians and regulators shamed and berated citizens for ‘selfishly’ and ‘unnecessarily’ bathing, showering, washing pets, filling up kiddie pools, and watering lawns instead of ripping them out in favor of ‘environmentally responsible’ green-painted gravel and the like. Enforcers were ready to hand out $500 fines.

Example Of NWO Directing Your Healthcare

There is the financial cartel, i.e.central banks, the news cartel, managing all the news it sees fit for you to see and hear, but nothing more, the defense cartel, the agricultural cartel, run by huge corporations like Monsanto, feeding you only GMOs as an example of ‘Better Living Through Chemistry,’ and shutting out organic foods and independent farms, and the medical cartel, each carrying out and controlling their cartel as controlled and directed by a select group.
Here is an example of how the medical cartel functions, always with a profit objective in mind, but not so much for what may be good for you. There is no money to be made from healthy people.
Medical Industry Profits Pre-empt Healthcare
The US healthcare industry is run by a Medical Cartel which explains why it is the most expensive in the world, yet provides less services than other advanced economies.
A strict protocol was established for cancer treatment involving just three procedures: surgery, radiation and chemotherapy. Where innovators outside the tightly controlled Medical Cartel tried to introduce alternative treatments such as herbal formulas, special supplements, foods or complete nutritional programs, the AMA and FDA labeled these procedures quackery, harassing the owners, raiding their clinics and in some cases prosecuting them in the courts; whatever was necessary to shut them down.

Public Is Losing Fear Over ‘Climate Change,’ Scientist Warns

Oh woe! The voters are catching on.
This week saw the 18th anniversary since the Earth’s temperature last rose – something that Dr Benny Peiser, from the Global Warming Policy Forum, says experts are struggling to understand.
He explains that we are now in the midst of a ‘crisis of credibility’ because the global warming – and accompanied ‘Doomsday’ effects – that we were once warned about has not happened.

“Nobody Has Any Idea How Disastrous It’s Going To Be” Warns California Water Expert

Newly released images created from NASA satellite data illustrate the staggering effect the California drought has had on groundwater supply in the state. As Mashable’s Patrick Kulp explains, the images show the amount of water lost over the past 12 years, with different colors indicating severity over time.’Nobody has any idea how disastrous it’s going to be,’ Mike Wade of California Farm Water Coalition told the Associated Press, as RT reports a growing number of communities in central and northern California could end up without water in 60 days due to the Golden state’s prolonged drought. While California is bearing the brunt, experts note “We’re seeing it happening all over the world, in most of the major aquifers in the arid and semi-arid parts of the world.”
California is currently experiencing the third year of one of the most severe short-term droughts ever recorded. Data from U. S. Drought Monitor shows that as of Sept. 30, 82% of the state is facing extreme or exceptional drought conditions.

Climate ‘Deniers’ Must Be Jailed or Killed

What is a ‘Climate Change Denier’? We have frequently noted in these pages that the environmental movement has a number of extremist elements that are anti-civilization in their outlook and have a very mean authoritarian streak. Among other things we have frequently cited the fact that many from the authoritarian Left have drifted into this (and other) movements after their sugar daddy in Moscow expired with the fall of the Soviet Union. However, this extremism is now increasingly going mainstream. After the earth’s climate has stopped warming for 18 years running (plus one month) in spite of atmospheric CO2 rising by one third over the same period, many apparently think the best course would be to shut up critics by force.
Let us first define the people who are on the receiving end of the derogatory ‘denier’ term (it is derogatory because it reminds of the term ‘holocaust denier’ and it is clear that this is the reason it was picked). None of them ‘deny’ that the climate is changing. It would be a foolish thing to assert, given that the climate has always changed and always will. The scientists who try to debunk climate alarmism are simply not alarmist.
The vast bulk of them concedes that human activity likely has some influence on the planet’s climate, but they believe that there is no certainty about the size of this influence, and whether CO2 (which the alarmists have declared to be the main ‘climate forcing’ agent) really has all that much to do with it. The paleoclimate record clearly suggests that this is not the case, as CO2 increases in the atmosphere have always followed warming periods with a considerable lag and not led them in a single instance. Moreover, the historical climate record – almost regardless of how far back one looks – shows that the earth’s climate has frequently been far warmer than today, long before anyone thought of burning fossil fuels.
In short, the skeptical argument boils down to: we do not know enough to indict human activity. Much of what we observe could simply be natural variation. Therefore, we should think twice before we take actions that threaten to destroy economic growth and ultimately industrial civilization. By now a powerful record of evidence is backing the skeptics up. Alarmists have invented 52 different excuses over just the past half year or so as to why their ‘predictive computer models’ have failed to predict the ‘pause’ – or why, indeed, they have failed to predict anything at all (the latest, and probably funniest excuse yet, is that they ‘could have predicted it if they had a time machine and could go back into the past’).
Again, it is important to remember here: not a single alarmist prediction made since the late 1970s has come true – not one. However, alarmism sells: it sells newspapers, it is loved by the political class, as it justifies ever greater government interference in the economy, and it is therefore the source of a huge gravy train of scientific grants. Many scientists try to be as alarmist as possible for this very reason: it keeps the grant money flowing. When they think no-one’s looking, they admit to each other what a ‘travesty’ it all is (their words, from the ‘Climategate’ e-mails).

The GMO Labeling Conundrum

It would seem that large agricultural corporations touting genetically modified organisms (GMOs) they claim possess enhanced benefits for farmers and consumers would be proud to differentiate their products on the shelves from organic and traditionally produced food. However that is not the case. Not only is big-ag attempting to hide the true nature of their products, but the many big-business food processors that incorporate GMO ingredients into their final products are likewise attempting to mislead consumers.
The obvious fear is that consumers will avoid GMO products in favor of those not labeled as modified. While other arguments have been made in attempts to justify not properly labeling food as genetically modified or not, the underlying theme appears to be the belief of big-ag that consumers’ ignorance over the alleged safety of GMO products threatens their business and with it, innovations they claim are a benefit not only to their bottom lines, but to all of humanity.
Of course, beneath the layers of this ‘belief,’ is the reality that their products do not offer any overwhelming benefit to humanity, and in fact, in many ways, have become a scourge to humanity. Additionally, peripheral arguments, such as GMO being in no way different to organic products, thus there is no need to label them, are so divergent from logic and commonsense that a general suspicion and distrust has formed in the collective mind of the public in regards to big-ag and those pushing their products.
To counter the growing ire of the general public, big-ag has raised an army of professional propagandists peddling pro-GMO talking points in the form of books, websites, mainstream media reportage and even while posing as ordinary citizens simply expressing their ‘opinions’ in comment sections and upon what are supposed to appear as independent personal blogs. They, to no one’s surprise, repeat verbatim the talking points proposed by big-ag itself, and while anti-GMO activists eagerly wade into the fray with this army of propagandists, the only relevant question that should be asked seems to escape them all.
If GMO is Better, Why Not Label it So You Can Find and Consume it Easier?

‘Dark zones’ in GMO technology research allow secret development of deadly bioweapons

(NaturalNews) 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.”

Navajo Nation Claws Back Half a Billion From US Federal Mafia

After a century of being taken to the cleaners by the US federal government, mining and energy giants, along with the nuclear power industry, the Navajo Nation has managed to claw back some of what is rightfully theirs.
The historic legal victory address the issue of past mismanagement, but it still leaves the door open for the tribe to pursue more funds to deal with the government’s physical mess left behind regarding water, and uranium/radioactive pollution left on its reservation.

Past uranium mining and ‘leach mining’ operations went mostly unregulated throughout the Navajo Nation.
Residents and property owners have been directly affected by groundwater pollution and radiation releases from uranium mills and piles, forced to deal with the environmental health from impacts of past uranium development. Issues like water contamination from uranium mining have largely gone unresolved, even though they have posed a direct threat to the natural and cultural survival in parts of the Navajo lands.
It’s important for readers to know that beyond the nuclear power industry, the final destination of all this uranium is in military nuclear weapons – missiles and bombs. The nuclear industry is both dirty and destructive at every point in the supply/production chain.

Japan Declares Level 3 Emergency, At Least One Dead After Volcano Erupts In Central Japan

When one thinks of Japan and natural disaster, the things that usually come to mind are earthquakes, tsunamis, radioactive lizards, the occasional massive nuclear power plant explosion. Not volcanoes – those are usually delegated to the sole country that dared to give bankers the middle finger, Iceland. And yet, overnight Japan declared a level 3 alert (on a scale of 1 to 5) when a volcano in central Japan erupted, sending ash clouds down the mountain’s slope for more than 3 kilometers. According to RT, at least one person has died and 70 were injured, while aircraft have been forced to divert to avoid the dangerous area. Medics confirmed the death of at least one person, while 70 more were reported to be injured, NHK reported. Thirty of the injured have been sent to hospital in critical condition, health officials added. One can only hope there were no nuclear power plants in the immediate vicinity of the volcano.
According to Japan’s NHK, the Ontake volcano on the border of Nagano and Gifu prefectures, 200 kilometers west of Tokyo, started erupting at about 11:53 local time (02:53 GMT). The Japanese TV outlet released the following video showing the volcano spewing thick, gray smoke into the air.

Global Climate Hysteria

Leftists on the March The crazies are evidently everywhere. After 18 years of zero global warming, global climate hysterians have decided that we should no longer debate the finer points of all those climate models that have so completely failed to predict any of this. While scientists have by now forwarded altogether 52 different ‘explanations’ (read: guesses, or rather excuses) about where the ‘missing heat has disappeared to’, a great many people seem to have made up their minds already and don’t want to wait for any progress in what appears to be a science that produces an ample amount of papers, but seems to actually not really certain about a great many things just yet.
Instead they are demanding action, and they want it now. What action? That is not 100% clear, but most of the organizations taking part in worldwide demonstrations over the weekend had the term ‘justice’ in their name, asByron York points out in the Washington Examiner. That is usually not a good sign – your wallet and your liberty are likely to suffer in order for others to be able to properly provide all this justice in your name.
Supported by a cast of usual suspects – various deluded Hollywood celebrities, Al Gore (usually the guarantor of cold weather wherever he shows up, in spite of his giant carbon footprint), socialist NY mayor Bill de Blasio, and a platitudes-spouting Ban Ki-Moon (who apparently heads the UN at present), every leftist issue one can think of was apparently promoted. The ‘climate change’ banner, which they say is the defining issue of our times, apparently manages to unite quite a disparate group of would-be planners.

Keiser Report: Desperate Times (E655)

The following video was published by RT on Sep 18, 2014
In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss that only those who can leave behind everything they have ever believed in can hope to escape the coming desperation. From buying water to keep your plants green in a drought to fracking for natural gas at a loss, however, it appears very few are willing to leave behind all that they believe. In the second half, Max interviews Bill Powers, author of ‘Cold, Hungry and in the Dark: Exploding the Natural Gas Supply Myth,’ about the zero percent interest rate that keep people in the dark on the high costs of fracking and the coming 70s style energy crisis due to growing demand based on fundamental lies.

A Widespread Power Failure Plus An Ebola Outbreak Would Become America’s Extinction Level Event

On November 13 and 14 of 2013, DHS and NERC conducted a simulated power grid takedown drill. Despite the fact the drill happened over 10 months ago and was well-publicized, the results have never been released. Additionally, many of us were concerned when we learned that the Russians and the Chinese were allowed to ‘participate’ in the drill. Even more concerning is the result of the Grid Ex II drill which demonstrated that if a widespread power outage was accompanied by a bio-terror event, such as a release of Ebola, the impact would overwhelm our nuclear power industry and the consequences could prove devastating.
After 10 months of secrecy, the results of the drill are beginning to leak. Over the past six months, I have received various communications from nuclear power plant whistleblowers, who have warned me about ongoing FEMA visits to the nuclear power plants across the United States. The visits are being triggered as a consequence to the results of the Grid Ex II drill. All of the visits coincide with Nuclear Power Plants which lie on earthquake fault lines! Here is an excerpt from one these sources.

Why King Coal Will Keep Its Crown

For climate change activists and those hoping for an energy future dominated by renewables or even less-polluting natural gas, the death of coal cannot come quickly enough. But with coal still the dominant form of cheap electricity throughout the world, it is unlikely the bogeyman of climate change will disappear anytime soon.
That’s because the price of coal, compared to other fuels, is just too good to refuse. Just look at China, where the country’s double-digit economic growth has largely been fueled by coal, which fulfills 60 percent of its energy mix.
According to a chart showing the levelized cost of energy — the price at which electricity must be generated from a source to break even — coal is the second-cheapest form of energy behind hydropower, at $40 per megawatt hour.

One of the most innovative cities in the world [you’ll never guess]

September 17, 2014 Talca, Chile
[Editor’s Note: This is the first in a multi-part series on some of the top Startup ecosystems in the world] When Chris D. came up with a great idea for his startup he was already thinking outside the box.
But his innovation didn’t stop there. His thought process extended far beyond the business idea into WHERE to best execute his plan.
He was already established in New York. And had he followed the conventional wisdom, that’s where he would have set up shop.
But then again, doing things differently and better than others is the hallmark of a great entrepreneur.
Comparing costs, lifestyle, and entrepreneurial environments, he found that by leaving the country he could have stronger opportunities and a better work environment for half the cost.
And it was anything but a sacrifice

USDA rules will allow chicken factories to conduct their own inspections

Apparently overburdened with having to police the filthy factory farm industry in accordance with the law, the U. S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has decided to simply hand over the inspection reigns to processing plants themselves, according to new reports. Updated “food safety” guidelines will soon entrust poultry processing plants with the responsibility of conducting their own food safety inspections, which means more feces, Salmonella and other contaminants in factory food. The new USDA rules were hailed by Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, a vocal proponent of factory farming and genetically modified organisms (GMOs), as some kind of boon for food safety. The former Iowa governor told reporters that having poultry processing plants police themselves, rather than be inspected by third-party auditors, will result in food being safer than ever. The new rules “will increase the chances of us detecting problems by placing the burden of finding [contaminants] such as salmonella on the plants,” he stated, in complete seriousness. Currently, the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) periodically places auditors on poultry plant processing lines to look for defective birds, feces and other public health threats in order to snag them before they end up at the grocery store. On average, government poultry inspectors track 130 birds per minute, an amount that makes it close to impossible to fully inspect every single bird.

Over 2 trillion becquerels of radioactive waste flowed from Fukushima plant into Pacific in just 10 months

At least 2 trillion becquerels’ worth of radioactive material flowed from the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant into the Pacific Ocean between August 2013 and May 2014, plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) has admitted. The rate of release was 10 times higher than TEPCO’s pre-meltdown threshold for radioactive material. A becquerel is a unit for measuring radioactive material that corresponds to one unit of radioactive decay per second. It is a way of describing how much radiation is being emitted by radioactive material, in contrast to measuring the mass or volume of the material itself, the energy carried by the radiation or the biological impact of exposure.
Radioactive sludge accumulating in bay In March 2011, the Fukushima plant suffered multiple meltdowns triggered by a massive earthquake and tsunami. Since then, TEPCO has struggled to contain the flow of radioactive water away from the plant. Currently, radioactive water is known to be leaking out of reactor buildings and downstream into the ocean. It is also suspected to be leaking into the ground from the plant, and flowing underground to the ocean from there.
