Ebola – 2018

ebola-biohazard-sign-isolated-white-d-render-436906422222

The 2nd outbreak of Ebola this year in the Democratic Republic of Congo could turn out to be worse then the 2014-2015 outbreak that killed many.  We’re not hearing to much about it in the American Media because:

  1. They’d rather talk politics than Ebola

  2. It doesn’t directly affect them so why report it?

  3. Most American probably don’t care to much about it as it doesn’t directly affect them.

  4. Everytime the media runs on something like Ebola they overdo it so badly people stop listening.

A great deal of Congo is in a war zone and refugees are fleeing the fighting. The odds of it spreading from the fairly remote Villages of past Outbreaks to large population centers is increasing daily.

Today, this crossed the wires:

DRC records first Ebola case in eastern city of Butembo – The East African

In Summary

  • DRC has recorded its first case of Ebola in the eastern trading hub of Butembo.
  • The city has a population of about 900,000, and strong trade links to neighbouring Uganda.
  • The current Ebola outbreak is believed to have killed 85 people since July and infected another 39

Needless to say, I think that even the American Press might be talking about Ebola very soon.

Is This The Beginning?

Ambulances full of patients from JFK airport after a lot of passengers and crew got sick on the flight.      Robert Stridiron

Emirates flight with dozens of sick passengers lands at JFK

https://nypost.com/2018/09/05/emirates-flight-with-dozens-of-sick-passengers-lands-at-jfk/

Emirates Flight 203 – an Airbus A380 with with around 521 people aboard – landed at JFK Airport in New York this morning with sick passengers and crew. Initial reporting made it seem like something straight from a movie – everyone onboard sick and plane was in quarantine.  My first thought was “Here we go – the Apocalypse has started” and visions of the Brad Pitt Movie “World War Z” came to mind.

MV5BNDQ4YzFmNzktMmM5ZC00MDZjLTk1OTktNDE2ODE4YjM2MjJjXkEyXkFqcGdeQXVyNTA4NzY1MzY@._V1_SY1000_SX650_AL_

A 14 hour flight and everyone is getting sick. No reports of who the passengers and crew are and where they have been recently.

Right now there are SO MANY diseases floating around out there. 14 hours is a very short incubation period for most biological agents. Vsrious types of flu come to mind and several have been in the News recently – H1N1 Swine Flu (yes, 1918 all over again) and H7N9 Avian Influenza – which is in the news because China will not share samples with the U.S. and the U.K.  Reports from China of the case count and such are considered somewhat suspect. A lot of people think H7N9 Avian Flu might become the H1N1 Pandemic of this century.

Also stories of Pandemic Cholera in our past come to mind – “Fine in the morning, dead 12 hours later”.

That 14 hour flight time is the kicker. Might this be a Chemical type agent?  Novichok like the poisonings in England or VX Nerve Agent like North Korea used?

A Microwave type weapon believed to have been used on attacks on American Embassies?

A Radiation type weapon?

Of course, it turns out that maybe 10 people were actually taken to a hospital in New York for checkups.  Everyone else filled out CDC Contact reports and were allowed to leave,

What you are probably seeing more and more of are Panic type symptons – something happened so I must be affected by it.  There is, of course, the fact that some people might immediately start thinking LAWSUIT so they have to be affected if they want to collect anything. Let us also not forget the growing Trauma-based theories that EVERYTHING is caused by trauma and everyone is suffering from PTSD in one form or another.

So far it seems we still have a little time before the apocalypse buries us all.

Update to this blog – 9/5/18 – 2:20PM 

This crossed my screen not more than 30 minutes after posting this blog:

 

Epidemic Hazard in France on September 05 2018 04:30 PM (UTC).

French authorities evacuated 141 passengers and crew from a flight arriving in the French city of Perpignan from Algeria on Wednesday after a child on board was suspected of being infected with cholera, the fire brigade said. The eight-year-old child was taken to hospital for checks after suffering bouts of vomiting and diarrhea during the flight, a fire brigade official said. A police source said the child’s mother and several passengers sitting near them were also hospitalized. Another child remained on board with another person, authorities said. The remaining passengers and crew were being kept on the tarmac before being transported to a decontamination facility for checks, the authorities said. Algeria last month experienced its first outbreak of cholera in 22 years, with two fatal cases. Some 50 people have been infected and are being treated in Boufarik, 30 kilometers (18.6 miles) east of the capital, health authorities told Algerian media. The source of the outbreak has been traced to bacteria from the Beni Azza river in the province of Blida, officials said. Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika on Monday fired the governor of Blida for failure to manage the outbreak. Algerian authorities said the disease was under control, with no new cases registered in the past three days.

Everyone on Board the flight is being decontaminated

Look beyond the Presidential Election

World-War-III-hybrid-war-propaganda-and-foreign-corruptionlong

World War III: Putin’s hybrid war conducted by Russian spy services and propaganda journalism in an effort to corrupt Western democratic institutions

For reasons known only to them, our American Politicians can’t seem to look beyond the last Presidential Election and Russia’s influence. It’s both parties stuck in a political mine field and sooner or later a mine’s going to blow.

Russia has been trying to influence elections all over the world FOR DECADES. They’ve just gotten a little more astute about it recently with the advent of Social Media. The United States and other countries have also tried to influence the citizens of other countries, but we are definitely amateurs compared to the Russians, Chinese and Iranians.

Sowing discord, dissent and political upheavals fit right into these players long-range plans. The United States does not seem to have the ability to look beyond the next election, let alone make long-range plans.  

There are a lot of things going on concerning Russia, China, Iran, North Korea and so on. Pretty soon events are going to occur that we aren’t ready for and we will still fight about how to deal with them. People (and politicians) will “be surprised” and blame others for their not having open eyes and seeing what and how things are occurring and have occurred.

Examples:

The United States was warned that if United Nations troops went beyond a certain line in the Korean War, China would be compelled to enter the war on the side of the North Koreans. The warnings were ignored and China entered the war.  With China came Russia.

Pearl Harbor was only the final step into the United States’ entry into World War II.  We were aware of what was going on with Germany, Italy and Japan but chose to ignore a number of obvious clues.

Russian (and others) interfere in more than just politics. It is being found that they support BOTH sides of Social Issues as an attempt to divide people. Best example of this is with the Anti-Vaccine movement in which they feed both sides in the debate and no one looks beyond the headlines and social media buzz. See:

Measles cases are skyrocketing in Europe and storming back in the US — Quartz

MEASLES-1

It is impossible for one person to keep up on the sheer amount of Measles cases occurring around the world! A person could spend all of their time just talking about measles and nothing else.

Yes, in many cases, measles is just something you get over, but there are people dying, permanently injured or suffering from birth defects because of measles.

While it may be just my opinion, I think that the Anti-Vaccine people are going to suffer this year and, unfortunately, a lot of others will suffer because of their unscientific, irrational belief system – fueled in part by their unscrupulous passing on of pseudoscience and outright greed.

Below are links to articles about measle that have occurred just over the past several days.

Anti-vaccers thrilled as measles epidemic continues to spread across Europe

masque1

Obviously Sarcasm (I Hope!)

I have had most of the vaccinations given to kids in the 50’s & 60’s. I had all of the vaccinations required by the military in the 70’s through 90’s. I get the yearly flu shot, the pneumonia shots, the Shingles vaccinations, the swine flu shot of the 70’s or 80’s and so on. I’m still here and still functioning.

My mother, while pregnant with my youngest sister, had the “German Measles” and my sister’s inner ears never developed and she has been disabled all of her life.  My son developed meningitis at age 4, but recovered.

Yes, I am an advocate for vaccinations and I make NOTHING from anybody for being pro-vaccination.

Right now there is an outbreak of measles throughout most the world – mostly in unvaccinated people.  Here in the United States there are 21 States with active measles cases. The CDC has not called it an epidemic yet, but they will.

People (some) DO DIE from the measles. My measles vaccinations are decades old, so I stand a chance of getting measles.

The Anti-vaccine shrills are making the money they claim “Big Pharma” is getting.

Edgar Allen Poe’s “Masque of the Red Death” is still appropriate today.
