SHOPPING MALLS AND SPORTS STADIUMS WILL SERVE AS IMPROMPTU EBOLA QUARANTINE ZONES

With the refusal of the Obama administration to close America’s southern border, Americans are vulnerable to a bioterrorism attack involving Ebola.
With the refusal of the Obama administration to close the airports to traveler coming out of West Africa, Americans wait helplessly for Ebola to spread throughout the country.
The Inevitable Quarantines As in West Africa, it is difficult to imagine that a massive quarantine is not America’ future. Theimposition of such a quarantine would involve six prerequisite resources:
1. A significant number of permanent facilities designed to house Americans long term.
2. Unlimited numbers of temporary facilities designed to hour Americans in an impromptu fashion.
3. A sufficient number of personnel to man the aforementioned facilities.
4. The use of ancillary personnel (i.e. local law enforcement) to support the main martial law occupation force.
5. The prepositioning of hard assets such as military vehicles, weapons and ammunition.
6. The creation of the legal authority to detail millions of Americans
This particular article addresses the vast numbers of temporary facilities which will be needed to quarantine millions of Americans on an impromptu basis, the legal authority to do so and the prepositioning of military assets needed to carry out the mission.
Legal Authority to Detain The Obama administration has all the laws it needs to imprison anyone should it plan to make mass arrests due to the Patriot Act and National Defense Authorization Act. It has illegally compiled lists of some 8 million names. The government has also acquired vast stockpiles of weapons and bullets.
Ammunition Needed for the Occupation The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has acquired 1.6 billion rounds of hollow-point ammunition.
FEMA is stockpiling massive quantities of emergency supplies, particularly in FEMA Region III where Thomas Duncan brough the Ebola virus to Dallas
The Postal Service, Department of Education, Internal Revenue Service, Social Security Administration and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration are buying up weapons and ammunition in bulk.

An Ebola Outbreak Would Be Advantageous For Globalists

It’s sad to say with such finality, but a universal fact of existence is that most of the people you meet in this life are fundamentally and functionally ignorant. Not necessarily stupid, but certainly ignorant. Ignorance comes not from a lack of intelligence, but from a denial of knowledge and truth. That is to say, ignorance takes hold when people decide to act as though they know and understand a thing, even if they do not. Ignorance prevails when a society or nation chooses to value the appearance of expertise, to value the theater of overconfidence, and to cheer for the bluster of morons rather than admit that they have unanswered questions on subjects they do not yet grasp. For nothing is worse for the self absorbed than to acknowledge that they do not know.
Entire nations have fallen throughout history because of this terrible weakness…
By extension, such ignorance is not just an inherent disease but also an easily exploitable disease. When we refuse to think critically and examine our surroundings thoroughly, we become like grazing gazelles oblivious to the predators encircling us in the tall grass. And, just as there are predatory individuals that hide amongst us, there are are also predatory oligarchs that camouflage themselves as benevolent politicos and financial professionals standing above us. Normal predators we fear, establishment predators we invite into our homes as protectors, saviors, and partners.
The disease of ignorance leaves us vulnerable to many other plagues, including literal plagues like the Ebola virus. When we take the establishment at its word concerning the threat of Ebola outbreak, we make ourselves vulnerable. When people assume that the worst could never happen to them, history shows us that it inevitably does.
The recent discovery of an Ebola infected patient in Dallas, Texas has led to reasonable concern from the general population, but mainstream media efforts along with CDC and White House spin have subdued any practical response by the citizenry. The constant droning voice of the establishment claims there is nothing to be worried about; that even if there was an outbreak in the U. S., it would be quickly squashed by highly prepared medical response teams.
First and foremost, the existence of just one Ebola infected person within America’s borders indicates a likelihood of others, or the possibility of others in the near future unless policies and procedures are changed. As far as I can tell, the government has no intention of introducing rational fail-safes such as requiring mandatory quarantine for those seeking to reenter the U. S. from known outbreak regions, shutting down unrestricted travel into the country from countries with Ebola, training hospitals properly in the identification of the disease, or committing mass resources to quelling Ebola in hot zones before it reaches our shores, at least not in time to make a difference.

US Ebola-Fighting Troops Mission Could Last A Year; Spain Quarantines 6, Euthanizes Dog; US Patients Conditions Worsen

Africa’s US commander has admitted troops will be fighting Ebola for about a year (and in direct contact with infected individuals). Both US Ebola patients conditions are worsening, as Reuters reports, Thomas Duncan is fighting for his life on a ventilator (and undergoing dialysis) and NBC cameraman Ashoka Mukpo is receiving blood from Ebola-survivor Dr. Kent Brantly. The outbreak in Spain has spread with 6 “high risk” patients under quarantine (and Excalibur the dog is set to be euthanized – raising questions about transmission mechanisms). The economic impact on West Africa continues to surge with The World Bank estimating a $32billion hit by the end of 2015.
US troops will be fighting Ebola for a year…
Thousands of U. S. troops may be living in tent cities in Liberia and supporting the fight against Ebola for “about a year” or until the deadly outbreak appears to be under control, the top military commander in Africa said Tuesday. “This is not a small effort and it’s not a short period of time,” Army Gen. David Rodriguez, the chief of U. S. Africa Command, told reporters at the Pentagon.

Gov Emergency Manager: ‘Ebola Outbreak is Being Conducted On Purpose; Violates All Protocols’

To say that the handling of the Ebola crisis from the get-go is a disaster would be an understatement. For months, as the virus took hold in town-after-town, country-after-country in West Africa medical professionals and emergency services experts warned that unless drastic containment measures were implemented it would eventually make it’s way to Europe, the United States and the rest of the world.
It is now clear that all containment efforts, if we can call them that, have failed to prevent the spread of the virus.
In the United States, where tens of billions of dollars have been spent on national security, one can’t help but notice the complete lack of discipline and failure to follow containment protocols once the infection was identified in Dallas. Among the evidence for how poorly the situation has been handled are haphazard quarantine guidelines, unbelievably unsanitary cleanup procedures, failure to isolate the ambulance that was used to transport the victim, and a total breakdown during hospital intake.
The situation begs the question: Are top-tier officials at the CDC and at the White House incompetent, or are they letting this happen on purpose?
One insider with intimate knowledge of the inner workings of Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) response protocols thinks the latter. In an interview with Alex Jones’ Infowars the anonymous whistleblower says that the procedures for dealing with an outbreak like smallpox and Ebola are very clear cut, and none of them were implemented in Dallas.
First, he says, the National Guard would be deployed to lock-down all entry and exit points into the affected area. Then, law enforcement would redirect people to hospitals, churches and other government agencies for care and/or screening. Finally, those identified or suspected of being infected would be isolated in containment centers at military bases or FEMA facilities.
Considering that the response to Patient Zero in Dallas lacked even the most basic response for pandemic prevention, the notion that this is an engineered event is becoming all the more likely.

The U.S. Preparing For The Real Mission In Syria, The Removal Of Assad – Episode 486

The following video was published by X22Report on Oct 7, 2014
Japan is in a triple dip recession. IMF slices Euro zone growth. Unemployed people protest the European central bank. US hiring plummets and the corporate media reports that the holiday retail season looks promising. One third of auto loans are sub-prime. Research study concludes Obamacare will destroy jobs. Walmart will not insure those employees who work less than 30 hours. Many protocols not followed during Ebola treatment, is Ebola a hoax or is there another agenda. Islamic state gives rules to journalist, everything must be approved by them. US clearing the path to clear the northern border of Syria and Turkey for a no fly zone and the ability to attack Assad.

US To Unveil New Ebola-Related Travel Bans As WHO Admits More Cases “Unavoidable”

Just hours after the World Health Organization warned “It is quite unavoidable, that [Ebola] incidents will happen in the future because of the extensive travel both from Europe to the affected countries and the other way around,” CDC Director Tom Frieden announced that:
U. S. TO ANNOUNCE FURTHER TRAVEL MEASURES VS EBOLA IN DAYS: CDC This merely confirms all suspicions and our earlier note that ‘air traffic is the driver’ of global contagion.

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.

Mike Adams & Dave Hodges ‘Possible 30 Million Dead’ As Containment is too Late

One of Obamacare’s chief architects, Ezekiel Emanuel, brother of Rahm Emanuel, recently stated that society would be far better off if people quit trying to live past the age of 75. His words are true to the heinous traditions of Fabian Socialism and his words live up to the accusation that the term ‘death panels’ is an accurate depiction of our national healthcare system. Obama’s handling of the Ebola crisis is reflective of this world view.
The featured guest on The Common Sense Show, on October 5, 2014, was Mike Adams, the ‘Health Ranger’. Mike Adams is an outspoken consumer health advocate, an award-winning investigative journalist, internet activist and science lab director. Adams is the founder and editor of NaturalNews.com, the internet’s most-trafficked natural health news website. Adams brought hsi expertise to The Common Sense Show and the revelations made in this interview were stunning.
Dave Hodges Interviews the Health Ranger, Mike Adams While appearing on The Common Sense Show, Mike Adams, made a number of startling statements regarding the Ebola outbreak in the United States. One of the most frightening aspects of Ebola is that one liter of Ebola-infected blood could kill up to 10 million people.
It’s Difficult to Believe That Ebola Is Not Purposefully Being Allowed to Spread Into and Across America Given the fact that our airports are still open to West African travelers coming into the United States and the fact that our southern border is still not being closed down, Mike and I have a hard time justifying the fact that this administration is not complicit in the spread of Ebola.

On Ebola, Quarantines And Similar

I’m sure you’ve heard that the Dallas Ebola patient’s family has been forcibly quarantined.
I’ve been pinged repeatedly since this story first broke on my views with regard to armed quarantines and similar, and some fanciful views (in my opinion) have been put forth, including by some folks that I hold in generally high regard and consider to be some of the more-thoughtful among us.
Let’s start with a few of the suggestions:
Quarantine anyone coming into the country that comes from either a “hotspot” nation or where the origination point does not have effective quarantine regulations and powers. That’s a nice sentiment, but the quarantine requirement in this case would be three weeks. The first question is where do you put them since any could be infected and, if they are, you can’t reasonably condemn an entire hotel! You could force travelers to pay for this (obviating the expense issue that otherwise exists but that would immediately terminate all business travel to and from any place on your designated list as most business trips are for far less time than the quarantine period. Think long and hard before adopting such a position folks. Lock down the borders. Uh, how? Terminate all international inbound travel? Ok, go ahead and try that. Note that the individual in question lied about his exposure and thus risk and was not symptomatic at the time of the flight, which means there was no way in a reasonable period of time to verify whether he was lying or not. This is an intractable problem unless you lock down the border entirely because people can (and do!) originate somewhere, travel through a place in which there is a problem, officials there may cooperate (in exchange for a bribe or just simply on principle) with not stamping a passport and you can (in most cases) travel in and out of such areas without using a documented means (e.g. other than an airplane.) Both we and the affected nations are already screening people, including Liberia where this guy originated. Again, verification is impossible in the few seconds or minutes you need to both change your status and the amount of time you have to verify a passenger’s claims.

Ebola – A Marker For The Insanity and Tyranny of Government

Are you worried about Ebola? You probably should be. Even if it turns out to be less of a threat than it now appears, it reveals the risks that ideological government is willing to subject the country to in order to protect its perverse and insane practice of political correctness.
Ebola happens to have ratcheted up fear in the country at the moment. However, other diseases that the country is being exposed to could be just as dangerous. Soon we may be looking for new cures for diseases thought mostly eradicated. For sure, we seem headed to seeking a new cure for the insanity and tyranny of government.
This comment by Subotai Bahadur suffices to put matters into perspective:
Subotai Bahadur
1) Responding to epidemics/pandemics is NOT something that has never come up before. The very fact that we are here, with our pre-Ebola life expectancies, is based on the ability of medical science to respond to disease outbreaks.
2) The standard first response, backed by millennia of successful experience, is isolation of the infected community/individuals with quarantine for those who are suspected and at risk.

MSNBC: EBOLA’S WORSE BECAUSE OF THE SECOND AMENDMENT

As Rahm Emanuel advised, Democrats should never let a good crisis go to waste. That’s what they’re doing over at MSNBC. Exploiting the Ebola crisis to trash Republicans who are opposed to Obama’s choice for surgeon general, Dr. Vivek Murthy.
Back in March we wrote about Murthy, who ‘is a rabid anti-Second Amendment ideologue who believes firearms ownership is a public health issue. Murthy is the president and co-founder of Doctors for America, an organization that melds healthcare and support for gun control legislation.’
Murthy’s organization, Doctors for America, believes the Second Amendment is a health issue.
‘For few other issues would we tolerate this state of affairs. If tens of thousands of Americans died every year of an infectious disease and there was no policy response, there would be a public outcry. If research clearly demonstrated that there were simple solutions to prevent all these deaths and still nothing changed, public health experts would be furious. It is time for us to recognize that we must take action to save thousands of lives and demand change from our politicians.’
Naturally, this brought a strong response from advocates of the Constitution and the Second Amendment, including Kentucky Senator Rand Paul. Murthy’s nomination was opposed by the NRA and held up by Republicans.

CDC Chief: ‘We can’t shut the border’. Pentagon sets up ‘Testing Lab’ in W Africa & sends 101st Airborne

Wisconsin Hospital responds to a second American infected with Ebola
A health concern has officials in our state on high alert. The deadly Ebola outbreak has infected another American. This time it is a photo-journalist that was working in Africa with a well known doctor.
A photographer working with NBC’s Dr. Nancy Snyderman in West Africa has tested positive for Ebola. He’s now being flown back to the U. S. The 33-year-old was immediately quarantined and is now on his way home for treatment.
CDC chief on Ebola: We cant shut the border
Tom Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, on Friday said restricting travel between the U. S. and West Africa would likely ‘backfire’ and put Americans more at risk of contracting Ebola.
Appearing on MSNBC, Frieden was asked about potentially prohibiting air travel between the U. S. and West Africa, where the Ebola outbreak is most widespread. He said that such a restriction would likely be ineffective and would make it harder for health officials to root out the virus.

Ebola: What You Need to do Today

We’re under attack.
We are experiencing the worst Ebola outbreak in world history.
If we miss any breaking news in today’s episode, we apologize. This story is fast-moving and we’re taking it in as we go.
But one thing won’t change: We’ve provided a list of items for you to consider purchasing before a potential outbreak occurs in the United States.
If you wait until an outbreak happens, it could be too late.
More on that in a moment.
** According to one microbiologist from Springfield, Missouri, the CDC is lying about the dangers of the infection.
Dr. Gil Mobley wore a protective suit yesterday at Atlanta International to protest how the CDC is handling Ebola.
‘With 10,000 people flying out of West Africa daily, it’s only a matter of time until all corners of the world are exposed,’ he told reporters. ‘Once it devours third world countries, the U. S. will be importing these cases daily. Eventually, the clusters will overwhelm even the most advanced countries’ ability to isolate and quarantine all those exposed.’
‘The CDC is asleep at the wheel,’ Mobley said. ‘It’s going to be bad, and I want to make sure that this conversation is happening that this could get out of control in the United States.’
** Unlike Mobley, we don’t think you should freak out (yet)…
Instead you should get to know the dangers, cut through the clutter (and fearmongering), and make smart choices if you’re in an area where the infection may be spreading (listen up, Texas!).

Sneaky CDC Changes Ebola Transmission Page – What You NEED to Know

By now, none of us should be surprised that ‘health officials’ and their associated agencies really DON’T know much about Ebola or how it is transmitted.
But this information is a bit shocking, even considering that it involves one of those government agencies.
Even just a month ago, we were told that Ebola isn’t easy to catch. Here’s what the CDC website said back on September 9, 2014:
When an infection does occur in humans, the virus can be spread in several ways to others. The virus is spread through direct contact (through broken skin or mucous membranes) with
a sick person’s blood or body fluids (urine, saliva, feces, vomit, and semen) objects (such as needles) that have been contaminated with infected body fluids infected animals Healthcare workers and the family and friends in close contact with Ebola patients are at the highest risk of getting sick because they may come in contact with infected blood or body fluids.
On September 11, 2014, here’s what the CDC’s Questions and Answers on Ebola page said about transmission of the virus:
How is Ebola spread?
The virus is spread through direct contact (through broken skin or mucous membranes) with blood and body fluids (urine, feces, saliva, vomit, and semen) of a person who is sick with Ebola, or with objects (like needles) that have been contaminated with the virus. Ebola is not spread through the air or by water or, in general, by food; however, in Africa, Ebola may be spread as a result of handling bushmeat (wild animals hunted for food) and contact with infected bats.

Outrageous: Dallas Paramedics Weren’t Told They Were Driving Ebola Contaminated Ambulance for 48 Hours

The Centers for Disease Control and medical experts around the country say they have procedures in place to deal with Ebola and pandemics.
But according to one paramedic in Dallas, neither he or anyone else was told that the ambulance they were driving was the same one used to transport Ebola patient Thomas Duncan to the hospital.
A Dallas paramedic claimed he drove the ambulance that the US Ebola patient was transported in and that he was not contacted by anyone about the potential exposure. He claims he drove the ambulance sometime after the patient was transported. The Dallas Fire Department left the ambulance that transported Ebola patient Thomas Duncan to the hospital in service for at least 48 hours before putting it in quarantine on Wednesday.

Obama’s Fascist Healthcare Policies Are Endangering American Lives

The Ebola crisis has taken a decidedly bad turn yesterday as the true agenda of the government and its minions is being fully exposed. In the face of a deadly Ebola crisis that has the potential to sweep accross the country with the vengeance of the 1918 Spanish Flu, one would think that the government watchdogs, the FDA, the CDC and the NIH would welcome help from the non-governmental affiliated healthcare industry in any way that they could get that help. Unfortunately, for the American public, these private corporations who operate with a government charter, are intimidating all but the aforementioned healthcare organizations to forsake any and all health claims as the FDA has completely banned the use of the word ‘Ebola’.
The FDA has sent out letters to nearly every natural healthcare company threatening them with strong action if they do not completely comply with the FDA even when the law does not require such compliance.
The Institute of BioAcoustic Biology A case in point in which the government sponsored healthcare watchdog industries should be welcoming any kind of health advances in the treatment of Ebola, particularly since we seem so helpless in the face of the virus, the work of the Institute of BioAcoustic Biology stands out.
The World Health Organization stated, on August 12, 2014, announced that ‘…the panel reached consensus that it IS ETHICAL TO OFFER UNPROVEN INTERVENTIONS (emphasis added)… There was unanimous agreement that there is a moral duty to also evaluate these interventions’. The Institute of BioAcoustic Biology, located in Albany, Ohio took up the challenge issued by the World Health Organization as they subsequently created software to confirm Ebola activators, genes and proteins which could be used as a means of predicting who would manifest symptoms prior to the manifestation of Ebola symptoms. The technology is based upon an analysis of sound frequencies.

NBC Cameraman Covering The Ebola Outbreak In Liberia Tests Positive For The Virus

Now that the seal has been broken, the American Ebola cases are coming fast and furious, and a few days after the first case of the deadly disease made its way to US soil, overnight we learned that an American cameraman helping to cover the Ebola outbreak in Liberia for NBC News has tested positive for the virus and will be flown back to the United States for treatment.
The news broke late last night, when NBC reported that the freelancer, Ashoka Mukpo, 33, was hired Tuesday to be a second cameraman for NBC News Chief Medical Editor and Correspondent Dr. Nancy Snyderman. Snyderman is with three other NBC News employees on assignment in Monrovia, reporting on the Ebola outbreak.

Mukpo came down with symptoms on Wednesday, feeling tired and achy. As part of a routine temperature check, he discovered he was running a slight fever. He immediately quarantined himself and sought medical advice. On Thursday morning, Mukpo went to a Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) treatment center to be tested for the virus. The positive result came back just under 12 hours later.

During An Ebola Pandemic All Of Your Rights Would Essentially Be Meaningless

If there is a major Ebola pandemic in America, all of the liberties and the freedoms that you currently enjoy would be gone. If government officials believe that you have the virus, federal law allows them to round you up and detain you “for such time and in such manner as may be reasonably necessary.” In addition, the CDC already has the authority to quarantine healthy Americans if they reasonably believe that they may become sick. During an outbreak, the government can force you to remain isolated in your own home, or the government may forcibly take you to a treatment facility, a tent city, a sports stadium, an old military base or a camp. You would not have any choice in the matter. And you would be forced to endure any medical procedure mandated by the government. That includes shots, vaccines and the drawing of blood. During such a scenario, you can scream about your “rights” all that you want, but it won’t do any good.
In case you are tempted to think that I am making this up, I want you to read what federal law actually says. The following is 42 U. S. C. 264(d). I have added bold for emphasis…

SICK HYPE: Ebola Fear Goes Viral Over ‘Patient Zero’ in Dallas

Ebola may have been contained, but the campaign of fear has gone viral…
21st Century Wire says…
What’s behind the propagandized rise of the deadly virus Ebola?
In early August, it was reported that an American doctor had arrived in Atlanta along with another aid worker, following an apparent humanitarian effort in West Africa. The pair entered the Unites States after supposedly contracting the deadly virus Ebola.
Dr. Kent Brantly, 33, of the Christian aid organization Samaritan’s Purse and Nancy Writebol of Serving in Mission (SIM), were flown in to the United States, following aid work in Foya, Liberia.
An outbreak of big pharma and covert aid
There is no cure for the Ebola virus, as it has reportedly killed between 50- 90% of those infected. We’ve been told that both Brantly and Writebol, have made a ‘miraculous’ recovery due to an experimental drug called ZMapp. The new drug from Mapp Biopharmaceutical, has not been approved for clinical testing, but that hasn’t stopped it from being thrust into the public sphere due rising concerns of a global pandemic involving Ebola. On August 12th, an unprecedented intervention by a panel from the World Health Organization (WHO) approved its use internationally, without any clear evidence of the drug working.
As Ebola hysteria has swept through the United States like a viral version of ISIS, one wonders about the uncanny timing of Mapp pharmaceutical’s ability to readily produce ZMapp antibodies -just in time for an apparent international crisis.

How Could Our Hospitals Be So Careless?

Well it’s finally here everybody. The Ebola virus has finally touched down on American soil, and we’ve seen first hand that the incompetence of American officials, knows no bounds.
They told us it wasn’t going to reach U. S. shores. They still claim that the virus isn’t likely to spread in a developed nation. But when we got our first taste of this horrendous infection, the hospital that treated the man went ahead and sent him home. They did this despite being told that he was from Liberia. He went on to mingle with his family and several school age children, before becoming so ill that he decided to go back to the hospital. He then vomited on the public sidewalk along the way. If the staff of that hospital weren’t alcoholics before, they will be if their actions turn this isolated incident into major outbreak.
Furthermore, why did the authorities decide to hide his identity (it has since been revealed as Thomas Duncan). I understand the privacy concerns of the family, but if nobody knows who this person is, then anybody who was exposed to him won’t know it until it’s too late. Remember, the early signs of Ebola are pretty similar to the cold or flu. If you came down with the ‘flu’ after shaking his hand, wouldn’t you be more likely to go to the hospital? Without that knowledge, anyone who was exposed to him won’t know to go to the hospital until they are very ill (and very contagious)
If you haven’t guessed by now, I don’t trust the government’s claims that they can control this thing. They continue to assure us that everything will be fine, while they stock up on 160,000 hazmat suits, and start telling funeral homes how to deal with bodies infected with Ebola. Real vote of confidence guys. Yet they continue to urge calm. They keep telling us ‘don’t worry folks, there’s no way it can spread in the United States. We’ve got the best doctors and fully stocked hospitals. We’ll be able to nip this in the bud.’
