“Imminent Ebola Epidemic Is A Certainty” Says Texas Officials & Healthcare Workers

Texas officials and healthcare workers from around the state are urgently warning friends and family that an “imminent Ebola epidemic is a certainty.”

This is not a test.

The above quote is drawn from a conversation between the author and a Texas healthcare professional with over 39 years of experience in many areas of medical care (including ICU, ER, labor & delivery) and currently works as a Director for a hospice organization. The individual quoted also has direct relationships with members of the Texas State Legislature and staff within the Texas Governors office.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The reason for concern is not only all the bad judgement calls from CDC about how infective Ebola is, but that everything the government is doing is reactive, such as the Ebola SWAT teams. They are playing catch up. And in a race like this there is no second place, only dead last!

U.S. Response to Ebola: We Don’t Have the “Strongest” Medical System In the World … Only the Most EXPENSIVE

U.S. medical officials have repeatedly said – almost like a mantra – that Ebola can’t possibly effect our country because we have the “strongest” and “best” medical system in the world.

Were they speaking as scientists … or salesman? After all, the U.S. has the most expensive medical system in the world. And – like all good salesmen – they have to talk up and justify the super-pricey product.

In fact, independent studies rank the strength and quality of our system as low.

Ann Coulter - WE'LL TELL YOU HOW DANGEROUS EBOLA IS AFTER THE ELECTION

This summer, the U.S. government imposed a travel ban on Israel simply to pressure Prime Minister Netanyahu into accepting a ceasefire agreement. But we can't put a travel restriction on countries where a contagious disease is raging.

It's becoming increasingly clear this is just another platform for Obama to demonstrate that we are citizens of the world. The entire Ebola issue is being discussed -- by our government, not the United Nations -- as if Liberians are indistinguishable from Americans, and U.S. taxpayers should be willing to pay whatever it takes to save them.

Maybe we should give them the vote, too! If Ebola was concentrated in Finland and Norway -- certainly Israel! -- we'd have had a travel ban on Day One.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Well, this IS an historic occasion. I actually agree with Ann Coulter on something!!!!

Polar vortex will likely make a return this winter, says Accuweather

“Cold air will surge into the Northeast in late November, but the brunt of the season will hold off until January and February,” they write. “The polar vortex, the culprit responsible for several days of below-zero temperatures last year, will slip down into the region from time to time, delivering blasts of arctic air.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"So remember; think "Polar Vortex" and don't ever, ever, EVER, let all that snow and ice cause you to doubt for the teensiest instant the most holy revealed dogma of human-caused global warming and my need for a carbon tax.

U.S. Ebola Response to be Probed by Congress

Congressional lawmakers will probe the U.S. response to the Ebola outbreak on Thursday amid growing fears of wider transmission after two health-care workers who treated an infected patient were diagnosed with the disease.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The cottage is on fire and Congress sits down to discuss whether or not they should buy a fire extinguisher!

Fire (not to mention Ebola) is a very real danger, but this government was caught off guard because for the last several years all their time, energy, and OUR money has been spent on the fiction of human-caused global warming, not to mention propping up Wall Street, Israel, and arming the Syrian Rebels, even though the CIA said this was not likely to work. To that end, the Obama administration sold the fire extinguisher (canceled the CDC's program to deal with a major epidemic outbreak in the US) back in 2010.

I understand that choosing a government is a political process. What I do not understand is allowing the political process to run the government!

UPDATE: So far the discussion is focused on getting a vaccine ready for sale and sending troops to Africa to save them from ISISbola!

Student’s photo of skimpy Michelle O school lunch sparks outrage

Lunch meat, a couple of crackers, a slice of cheese and two pieces of cauliflower qualified as lunch in Chickasha Public Schools Monday.

Chickasha lunchStudent Kaytlin Shelton took a photo of the skimpy lunch and showed it to her parents.

U.N. Arms Treaty – An Attempt to Disarm America

Gun-control liberals have chosen an odd time to be foisting their misguided agenda on the American public. Consider the following facts about life in America. Felonious incidents such as assault and battery, car-napping, murder, abductions, robberies, school shootings, workplace violence, road rage, and home invasions are occurring at unprecedented levels. In fact, crime is up in most categories, except, that is, in communities where law-abiding citizens have legally armed themselves. In an Oklahoma company one employee was beheaded by a discontented Muslim extremist, but the lives of other employees were saved because a manager in the company was armed and took quick action. Although the mainstream media does much to cover up incidents in which lives are saved by armed Americans, this kind of thing happens all the time, and Americans know it. Consequently, citizens of all stripes—men and women, Democrats and Republicans—are arming themselves.

Chutzpah on Social Cohesion

When government politicians talk of social cohesion I get worried. My own MP, Richard Benyon, tweeted recently, “Working with organisations who promote cohesion is vital: ‘good work should not be derailed by local or international events.'”. Fine. Who could disagree? But his party, the co-ruling Conservative Party, has been associated with two think tanks, Policy Exchange and the Centre for Social Cohesion, described by SpinWatch as “two of Britain’s most influential right-wing think-tanks”, which “have used the fear of terrorism and of Islam to push an authoritarian political agenda”.

Obama Knew Arming Rebels Was Useless, But Did It Anyway

What’s worse: Launching a disastrous military campaign under false pretenses to achieve goals you wrongly believe are attainable? Or launching a disastrous military campaign you know is doomed in order to help your party win an election?

I ask in light of today’s New York Times story about how President Obama asked the CIA a while back whether arming rebel forces – pretty much the agency’s signature strategy — had ever worked in the past.

He was told that it almost never has.

But then in June, once the political pressure for intervention in Syria got too great, he did just that — sending weapons to rebels fighting the Syrian military.

Yes: He knew better, but he did it anyway.

No, There's Still No Evidence There Was an Active WMD Program in Iraq

C.J. Chivers of the New York Times has a long piece today about chemical weapons found in Iraq after the 2003 invasion. A few dead-enders are now gleefully claiming that Bush was right after all. Iraq did have WMD!

This is ridiculous enough that—so far, at least—the savvier wing of the conservative movement is staying mum about the whole thing. There are three main reasons for this. First, most of these weapons were rotting remnants of artillery shells used during the Iraq-Iran war in the 80s and stored at Iraq's Muthanna State Establishment as well as other nearby sites.

There has been an ongoing battle between researchers and the natural gas and oil industries over whether or not hydraulic fracturing (fracking) is definitively leading to an increase in earthquake activity.

Ohio is already on the map as one of the 6 states where earthquakes are a new feature of reality. And it's one state where mainstream geologists and seismologists are now confirming the link between fracking and earthquakes that we have been suspecting all along...

The parents of seventh-grade students Dustin Athearn and Melissa Snodgrass learned this the hard way after their children created a fake Facebook page under the name of fellow student Alexandria (Alex) Boston. Dustin and Melissa, with the help of a “Fat Face” app, distorted Alex’s features, while also making offensive comments about the girl.

Calling Russia ‘threat to humanity’ puts Obama’s sanity in doubt - Medvedev

“I am very upset by the fact that President Obama, while speaking from the United Nations’ podium and listing the threats and challenges humanity is currently facing, put Ebola in first place, the Russian Federation second and the Islamic State organization was only in the third place. I don’t even want to comment on this, this is some sort of aberration in the brain,” Dmitry Medvedev said in an interview with CNBC television.

Putin: If Ukraine siphons gas from pipeline, Russia will reduce Europe supplies

Moscow will reduce gas supplies if Kiev starts siphoning deliveries destined for Europe, said Russia’s President Vladimir Putin during a visit to Serbia.

“There are large transit risks. If we see that our Ukrainian partners start illegally taking our gas from the export pipeline as it was in 2008, we will equally reduce the amount of supply as happened in 2008,” warned Putin on Thursday at a news conference in Belgrade, stressing he was "hopeful" it would not come to that.

However, the Russian president pledged that Moscow will supply enough gas to Europe this winter.

The original was released 13 years ago and scored Afroman a UK number one, before helping him on his way to a Grammy nomination.

The 4 Most Absurdly Expensive Versions of Filthy Products

If I'm going to buy a thing and its intended purpose is to get dirty, I'm not going to go for the most expensive version of that thing. That's a basic understanding of the world most of us share. "Most" being the key word.

Some people who are mega-rich apparently don't have that understanding. I know this because there are products that are normally inexpensive (for a reason) that come in decadent versions crafted specifically for the wealthiest people in the world. I'm talking everyday, basic things we all use and don't think twice about, yet some rich people apparently prefer to have gold-plated and diamond-studded and slapped with price tags so outlandish they defy all logic and taste.

Confronting Battered Citizen Syndrome

James F. Tracy
Activist Post

State-sponsored terrorism poses a significant challenge to the psychological well-being of the body politic. While evident in many geopolitical locales, this condition arising from such government abuses is especially prevalent in the West. Such a disorder is comparable to the psychological manipulation recognized on a micro-level in some spousal relationships.

Indeed, the 13-year-old “war on terror” has contributed to a grave societal malady that might be deemed “battered citizen syndrome.” As the project of a transnational New World Order is laid out, the psychological constitution of the polity must necessarily experience perpetual crises and the threat thereof. Genuinely non-conventional political communication, organization and activism are among the few substantial means of combating battered citizen syndrome and the spiritual and psychological slavery it perpetuates...

During this briefing in Seoul, he said General Walter L. “Skip” Sharp suggested the US would use nuclear weapons if necessary in the event that North Korea moved across the demilitarised zone.

Care Quality Commission: 'Four in five NHS hospitals not safe'

Watchdog finds 'shocking' levels of safety at NHS hospitals and warns 'public being failed' in first annual report since Ofsted-style ratings

Four out of five hospitals inspected by regulators are not safe, according to new annual ratings of NHS trusts which watchdogs have branded “shocking”.

The report from the Care Quality Commission (CQC), the inspectorate for health and social care, details findings from the first year of a new style of inspections, which will give all hospitals, care homes and GP surgeries Ofsted-style ratings.

The regulator said “the public is being failed” by the numerous hospitals, care homes, and doctors surgeries unable to meet basic standards, in a report which vows to call time on an “unacceptable lottery” in care.

In the last days of ‘Operation Protective Edge’ Israel focused on its final goal — the destruction of Gaza’s professional class

The bombing of these buildings was the finale of Israel’s mass destruction of the Gaza Strip, flattening landmark towers that provided essential social and economic functions, and which stood as symbols of the besieged coastal strip’s beleaguered professional class. While the war began with the flattening of the areas the Israeli military considers Gaza’s “hard shell” — border areas like Shujaiya and Khuza’a — it ended with a brazen assault on its soft core. The targeting of the professional class, a key pillar of Palestinian society generally considered unsympathetic to the political goals of Hamas, was a new front of economic and social warfare on Gaza.

If the stock market continues going as it is and the economy starts turning down, I think the Fed is going back to easing (money printing) again.

Scientists find vitamin D is crucial in human immune response to tuberculosis

Vitamin D — a natural hormone, rather than a vitamin — is known to be instrumental in bone development but also may protect against cancer and autoimmune diseases and fight infections.

In a study published online Oct. 12 in the peer-reviewed journal Science Translational Medicine, researchers examined the mechanisms that govern the immune system's ability to kill or inhibit the growth of pathogens such as Myobacterium tuberculosis, the bacteria that causes tuberculosis.

The team found that T cells, which are white blood cells that play a central role in immunity, release a protein called interferon-g that triggers communication between cells and directs infected immune cells to attack the invading tuberculosis bacteria. However, this activation requires sufficient levels of vitamin D to be effective.

In addition, they said, the nurses tending him had flimsy protective gear and no proper training from hospital administrators in handling such a patient.

The allegations, made under unusual circumstances, provided the first detailed portrait of Thomas Eric Duncan's second trip to the emergency room, where he arrived by ambulance days after doctors had sent him home with a fever, a headache, abdominal pain and a prescription for antibiotics.

Two Republicans Call on CDC Chief to Resign Amid Ebola Spread

Two Republican U.S. lawmakers called for Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Thomas R. Frieden’s resignation, saying he mishandled the cases of two health-care workers in Texas who contracted Ebola.

Representative Pete Sessions of Texas, a member of the House Republican leadership, told conservative talk show host Laura Ingraham that Frieden had failed to prevent the spread of the virus to two health workers who cared for a man who died of the disease in Dallas. Representative Tom Marino of Pennsylvania also called for Frieden to quit, saying that the “Ebola situation is beginning to spiral beyond control.”

Sessions, whose district is home to the hospital where the Ebola patients were treated, and Marino commented after the agency said today that the second Texas health worker who tested positive for Ebola flew from Dallas to Cleveland and back before reporting she had symptoms.

EARLY REPORT - Ebola has broken out in Guatemala, Central America

I have been informed from a private but totally reliable source in Guatemala that a male from the Congo is hospitalized with Ebola in the IGSS Hospital in Guatemala City, Guatemala.

I am told that the authorities are in a panic as they do NOT have any facility capable of handling Level 4 Bio-hazards.

There has been a news embargo of this story.

So on Nov. 4, the 27-year-old assembly-line worker and hip-hop musician from a deeply Democratic community plans to take bold action. He says he will vote for a white Republican.

Airborne spread of Ebola "strongly suspected" by Canadian health care workers

Viral Hemorhagic Fever: Update for Clinicians and it's prior versions said that nosocomial transmission may occur "by aerosols." This information is consistent with the posted Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) "Ebola Virus Pathogen Safety Data Sheet," which says "...airborne spread among humans is strongly suspected"

In the statement, Dr. Isra Levy, Ottawa's medical officer of health, emphasized that "Ebola virus disease spreads only through direct contact with infected bodily fluids." But the head of the Ontario Nurses Association said there is no consensus on whether or not Ebola can spread through the air. Linda Haslam-Stroud argued that someone could inhale tiny airborne particles if exposed to them long enough in an enclosed space.

"Aerosol transmission has not been ruled out and this is the fundamental disagreement that we're having right now with the government and we're working with the government to try to resolve," she said. "Ebola has a lot of unknowns to it."

Sleeping 7-year-old girl shot in head during no-knock police raid on wrong home

A Special Response Team shattered a family’s window in the middle of the night, hurled a flashbang onto a couch next to a sleeping girl, then charged in and shot her in the head. The hyper-aggressive tactics were made worse by the fact that police had taken it upon themselves to raid both sides of a duplex, when their suspect was only known to reside in one of them.

Virus-transmitting 'yellow fever' mosquitoes discovered in L.A. County

A new aggressive daytime-biting mosquito capable of transmitting debilitating and possibly deadly viruses has been found in the Los Angeles region, officials announced Wednesday.

Known as yellow fever mosquitoes, the insects were found Oct. 7 and 8 in Commerce and Pico Rivera, respectively, according to the Greater Los Angeles County Vector Control District.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One of the usual duties of local government is politely termed "vector control" which means taking active steps to reduce the population of insects and animals known to carry diseases; aka the "vectors." This is a function of government that usually operates below the notice of the taxpayers and for that very reason is the first to feel the austerity budget axe. That certainly happened here in Hawaii and likely California and other states, and now the populations of disease-carrying insects and animals are on the rise!

Drivers 'ripped off' at pumps as oil costs fall: Claims four pence a litre drop is yet to be passed on to drivers

Motorists are paying ‘rip-off’ fuel prices at the pumps because falling petrol prices are failing to keep pace with plummeting oil costs, motoring groups warned last night.

Although forecourt prices are falling – driven largely by supermarkets cutting their pump prices – it is claimed up to 4p per litre on average has yet to be passed on to drivers following a 2p drop since September.

And drivers in rural areas are being hit harder because there are fewer supermarket competitors to kick-start a price cut.

As a result motorists face a post-code lottery over the extent to which they benefit from crude oil prices tumbling on international markets.

In 2013 alone, more than double the Israelis quite Israel than in 2012.

YouTube has potentially infected over 100,000 users during the past 30 days

YouTube has become a daily habit for millions all over the world, but it looks like there has been some malicious activity on the website -- which may have affected more than 100,000 users over a 30 day period.

According to Trend Micro, they have been monitoring the activity on YouTube over the past couple of months and have found that the attack comes in the form of ads that are present on the site. While the ads themselves have no malicious content, the issue seems to occur when the ad is clicked. Although these ads should be monitored and screened by YouTube, some have seemed to slip through the cracks, redirecting to malicious websites that could cause infections. While this all sounds fairly simple, the actually process for passing off a malicious site for something legitimate is fairly complex.

2nd nurse with Ebola called CDC before boarding flight

In the case of Amber Vinson, the Dallas nurse who flew commercially as she was becoming ill with Ebola, one health official said "somebody dropped the ball."

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that Vinson called the agency several times before flying, saying that she had a fever with a temperature of 99.5 degrees. But because her fever wasn't 100.4 degrees or higher, she didn't officially fall into the group of "high risk" and was allowed to fly.

Officials in the U.S. have been trying to calm fears over the Ebola crisis, but time and again events have overtaken their assurances.

- its history and role over the past 150 years

Today, Zionism has become the most dominant ideology in the western world and is the most significant expression of Anglo-American imperialism, and reached a new stage by ”Project for a New American Century”.

Zionism is, according to its own prominent figures, a religious/political movement the aim of which is to create a socialistic model state for Jews in the land of Palestine where Mount Zion is located. Its roots are found in Judaism and in the middle of the nineteenth century Moses Hess, Karl Marx’s mentor in socialism, developed it into a political movement.

Amber Vinson, a nurse who had cared for America's first Ebola victim, Robert Duncan, was running a fever and was hospitalized shortly after she disembarked from the plane.

*DALLAS COUNTY CONSIDERS DECLARING STATE OF DISASTER FROM EBOLA
*DALLAS DISASTER DECLARATION WOULD ACTIVATE EMERGENCY PLAN
While we are not sure where a "state of disaster" ranks relative to a "public health emergency" such as the one in Connecticut, we are certain of one thing - it will mean civil liberties will be reduced as government takes control.

Much of the responsibility for the Ebola crisis that the United States is now facing can be laid squarely at the feet of Barack Obama.

A new report from the Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America (BSSA) has highlighted four sections of the San Andreas fault that are locked in place and building up pressure.

Fault creep describes the slight slips, and the release of small amounts of pressure that build up on fault lines. Without the creep that most faults exhibit, the pressure builds and builds until there is a major earthquake when the 'stuck' rocks suddenly move and the pressure is released.

The news came out this morning that the second American nurse diagnosed with Ebola flew on a plane with 132 other passengers from Cleveland, Ohio to Dallas, Texas. Amber Vinson had a low-grade fever when she boarded the plane, and was admitted to Texas Presbyterian Hospital just hours after disembarking.

The latest horror?

Not only were 132 people who flew with Vinson exposed to Ebola.

In the time it took the CDC to notify Frontier Airlines of the issue, 5 more flights were made.

The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff – the American top military leader – told CNN today:

“If you bring two doctors who happen to have that specialty [i.e. doctors who are experts in Ebola] into a room, one will say, ‘No there is no way it will ever become airborne, but it could mutate so it could be harder to discover,’ ” and another might say something completely different, Dempsey said.

He said he is alarmed by the World Health Organization’s warning that Ebola cases could increase and the virus could mutate.

“Then it will be an extraordinarily serious problem,” he said. “I don’t know who is right. I don’t want to take that chance, so I am taking it very seriously.”

The same plane used on Flight 1143 was used on an October 14 flight from Cleveland to Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. The plane with tail number N22OFR later returned to Cleveland that afternoon before heading on a route from Cleveland to Atlanta and then back.

Frontier removed the plane from service early Wednesday following the CDC warning and according to reports, the airline said the plane was immediately decontaminated.

Advert featuring woman’s breasts causes 500 accidents in a DAY among Moscow’s distracted male drivers - before being impounded by police

An advertising campaign showing a woman's breasts has been blamed for more than 500 traffic accidents in one day.

The massive adverts placed on the side of 30 trucks driving around Moscow showed a woman's breasts cupped in her hands with the slogan 'They Attract' across her nipples.

As the trucks trundled around the streets of the Russian capital, they left a trail of carnage as male drivers became so distracted they ploughed straight into each other.

A total of 517 accidents were reported.

“In the real world, simplification is valued over complication,” he added, signing the letter as a “frustrated parent.”

Some parents and teachers are divided on the initiative, with one commenter writing on KSDK’s Facebook page: "I can't help my third and fifth graders with their homework because they have to follow ten extra steps to come up with an answer that I was taught how to do in two steps.”

If a family earns $40,000 a year because both parents are working at minimum wage in one or more jobs each and their teen has a paper route, that does not accurately reflect the state of the American worker.

Will the Real Ebola Vaccine Stand Up? Exposing a Major Cover Up

There are lat east two Ebola vaccines. One vaccine has been in development since 2004. The second vaccine, being developed by GSK, is presently in development and will be brought to market by January 2015.
Vaccine #1- GSK

To say that this vaccine is being brought to the public a little too fast would be the same as saying that Mt. St. Helens caused the earth to “shake a little bit”. The GSK vaccine will be completed from start to finish in 5 short months. Normal medical protocols dictated that this process should take from 3-5 to years. This vaccine is reckless and will endanger the public’s health upon its roll-out.
Vaccine #2- Crucell

What You Are Not Being Told: Fast facts From Crucell’s Website

Plane Used by Ebola-Infected Nurse Was Cleaned and Back in Service Next Day

The plane that transported an Ebola-infected nurse from Cleveland to Dallas was cleaned and put back into service the next day, according to Frontier Airlines.

The plane has flown to at least one other U.S. city after being cleaned in Dallas, according to the airline, which confirmed it was cleaned again in Cleveland on Tuesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The second cleaning probably included some serious disinfecting (we hope) but the cleaning crew on Tuesday had no way to know the plane was possibly contaminated with Ebola and probably did little more than vacuum, pick up the trash, and do a surface wipedown. Unless they took special precautions, the cleanup crew is possibly exposed to an even greater degree that passengers just sitting in their seats were.

Ebola screening at Heathrow is blasted as 'a joke' on first day as passengers arriving from Africa reveal: 'We could have walked straight through'

Britain's Ebola screening plans descended into chaos on its first day today after people flying to the UK from high risk countries revealed the checks are not compulsory.

Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt said airline passengers from West Africa must be checked for symptoms 'to make our country safe' and warned the epidemic could be as deadly as Aids.

He also warned Britain should expect up to ten cases by Christmas as screening of passengers from Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea, where 4,000 have died from Ebola, started at Heathrow.

But travellers at Terminal One this morning said the system is a 'complete joke' because they were either not checked at all, told it was optional or had to seek out medical staff themselves.

What we have are governments wanting to LOOK like they are dealing with the problem, ahead of actually doing anything.

Obama’s Dumb War

If Barack Obama owes his presidency to one thing, it was the good sense he had back in 2002 to call the Iraq War what it was: “dumb.”

Now, with scarcely a whisper of debate, Obama has become the fourth consecutive U.S. president to bomb Iraq — and in fact has outdone his predecessors by spreading the war to Islamic State targets in Syria as well. With the Pentagon predicting that this latest conflict could rage for three years or longer, Obama is now poised to leave behind a Middle East quagmire that closely resembles the one he was elected to end.

Mr bin Ali Jaber has filed litigation asking the German government to stop the use of Ramstein Air Base in assisting the US’ covert drones programme. Mr bin Ali Jaber is also asking that the German government acknowledge that allowing the US to use Ramstein to facilitate drone strikes in Yemen – a country with which the US is not at war - is unlawful.

A Stunned Wall Street Reacts To Today's Epic Move

This is unheard of and something I have never witnessed in my near fourteen year career on the Street.

Science of Us recently spoke with Aslan about what he sees as profound weaknesses in the New Atheist worldview, the rise of ISIS, and why it’s important to understand the differences between various Islam-influenced terror groups.
