    The Entry of Ebola into the US Has Hallmarks of a Planned Happening

    Paul Craig Roberts

    More information is available that suggests the the government had advance information that ebola was coming to the US and that the government expects a much larger outbreak of the disease in the US than it admits.

    Keep in mind that Washington is evil and has been killing people in seven countries for thirteen years based entirely on lies. Keep in mind that Washington has a long list of countries that it has destabilized. Most recently Washington overthrew the elected government in Ukraine and is currently working on the remaining independent governments in the Middle East, Russia, and China as Tony Cartalucci’s article documents: http://www.globalresearch.ca/turmoi...xinjiang-americas-covert-war-on-china/5409079 For six case studies of how Washington overthrows governments read The Brothers.

    Here is a report from Natural News:
    http://www.naturalnews.com/047118_ebola_pandemic_us_government_american_cities.html

    The U.S. government knew about the outbreak in advance, but didn’t warn the public

    It’s now clear that the U.S. government has long known this outbreak was coming but did nothing to warn the public.

    In early September, the government sought to purchase 160,000 Ebola hazmat suits from a U.S. supplier. http://www.naturalnews.com/046884_ebola_pandemic_hazmat_suits_biological_protection.html

    Furthermore, according to this report on SHTFplan.com, “Disaster Assistance Response Teams were told to prepare to be activated in the month of October.” http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-ne...o-they-would-be-activated-in-october_10012014

    Don’t you find it strange that while the government itself was gearing up for an October disaster, the public wasn’t told a thing about any of this?

    Oh good grief, I am beginning to realize that facts and reality simply do not matter when it comes to posting on internet discussion boards.

    My bad I worded that badly. Unfortunately I already knew it, but it seems every day I see something that makes me continue to think we are slipping further and further away from reality and before we know it more people than not will actually believe in the nonsense that is posted on these sites. Heck we have posters here that actually post links to Blogs, other Discussion Boards and YouTube as their source of facts and truth, WT...........

    There are good reason for it. Took a whole 30 seconds to find out why, strange you could not do the same.
    http://www.newsmaxhealth.com/Headline/ebola-patent-US-government/2014/10/09/id/599636/

    What’s more, the government holds patents on many microbes discovered in its labs and there is “nothing nefarious” about it,” says Sanders, who has done research into how to prevent Ebola from being used as a biological weapon.



    Websites including The Common Sense Show, Natural News, and White Out Press have spread the word about the U.S. patent on Ebola, along with headlines hypothesizing that government’s intention is to “raise billions from a pandemic.” “



    Sanders said that the government patents viruses and other disease-causing microbes to make sure the pathogens remain available for research purposes in the public domain. If a private company held the patents, it could potentially hold onto pathogens or charge licensing fees that would stifle research to find treatments.







    “The CDC does hold some patents on life forms, but it generally does this for the common good, so a commercial company can’t come along and patent it,” Sanders told Newsmax Health.



    “The CDC lets researchers work with the strain without fees,” he said.



    The CDC’s patent on a strain of the Ebola virus, Ebola Bundibugyo (EboBun), was granted in 2010. The agency had applied for it a year earlier. The CDC’s genetic sequencing of the virus, which is found in Uganda, was performed in 2007, according to the patent application.

    So you think there is any good reason for inventing a deadly virus in an African country and paying a Canadian company to infect healthy people with it and allow it to be breached into the public.
    ""Dr. Cyril Broderick, A Liberian scientist and a former professor of Plant Pathology at the University of Liberia’s College of Agriculture and Forestry says the West, particularly the U.S. is responsible for the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. Dr. Broderick claims the following in an exclusive article published in the Daily Observer based in Monrovia, Liberia. He wrote the following:


    The US Department of Defense (DoD) is funding Ebola trials on humans, trials which started just weeks before the Ebola outbreak in Guinea and Sierra Leone. The reports continue and state that the DoD gave a contract worth $140 million dollars to Tekmira, a Canadian pharmaceutical company, to conduct Ebola research. This research work involved injecting and infusing healthy humans with the deadly Ebola virus. Hence, the DoD is listed as a collaborator in a “First in Human” Ebola clinical trial (NCT02041715, which started in January 2014 shortly before an Ebola epidemic was declared in West Africa in March."
    Is there anything that you grazers wont excuse your herder for?

    what I do question though, is the cure that worked, how come not more doses of that one yet, what is holding up production?

    You have already tried discussing your theory, has nothing to do with what I posted in reply to the question it answered. Once again you have no supporting evidence, do not try changing the subject when you cannot deal with the answers given.

    They were not geared up to produce it, it was not a money maker before now and really will not be one now for the company, takes time to set up production and do the work, not as easy as popping out a new plastic cup or coffee machine.

    your right of course, there is no money in a cure.. now if it was long term treatment that would bring in lot of cash, it would already be out there

    something like a "vaccination" would be a money maker

    sad isn't it, but that is what happens when corps control our health

    10 Most Influential People in the Alternative Media (2011)

    Many readers will expect to see Matt Drudge or Arianna Huffington on this list. Although they both indeed have leading Internet news websites that cover some fringe stories and report on systematic injustices more so than the mainstream media, they primarily aggregate mainline news. Therefore, they are excluded from our “alternative media” label.
    The criteria we’ve chosen to base these rankings of the most influential alternative media figures are the following;
    •people that have the courage to seek the truth no matter where the information leads them;
    •those with the courage to question 9/11;
    •those who don’t buy into the false left-right political paradigm;
    •those who are grounded in peace and liberty;
    •those with the communication skills and platform to affect real change.

    Significantly, each of the people who made our list is clearly driven by unyielding passion. Despite some natural disagreements, they each provide a unique bridge to forbidden knowledge and they all deserve high praise for their efforts and commitment to inform the public. Sincerely, it is very encouraging to have so many talented voices leading the stampede for truth, liberty, justice, and peace.

    With so many people doing great work in the real alternative media, we are sure that some deserving reporters will be left off the list. Although Activist Post has forged relationships with some of the people on this list, we’ve tried to remain as non-biased as possible in our observations. At the end, we’ve also included a list of those who deserve honorable mention for their tireless work and talent providing the truth.
    10. Dr. Paul Craig Roberts: Paul Craig Roberts is one of the most respected columnists in the alternative media. His syndicated articles can be seen on many leading alternative news websites including Lew Rockwell, Infowars, Counterpunch, InformationClearingHouse and countless others. Roberts scores huge points in the credibility department having been the former head of policy at the Department of Treasury under Reagan, and the editor of the Wall Street Journal — among a long list of other accolades. His research is impeccable and his vision of how the world really operates is second to none. He knows why and when the global chess pieces are moving, and has the incredible talent to communicate difficult concepts to the general public. He has written several books including The Tyranny of Good Intentions and How the Economy was Lost. His many interviews can be seen on Russia Today and Prison Planet TV. Roberts is also a recent contributor to Gerald Celente’s esteemed Trends Journal. There is no one better at reporting the reality of geo-political events and the workings of the Treasury and the Federal Reserve."

    ah, so there is no evidence?

    like I thought, Paul Craig Roberts is an idiot.
