Ebola Conspiracy Theories Spreading Fast as Outbreak Travels Round Globe - Created in Lab
Mirror ^ | Patrick Mulchrone

Posted on 08/02/2014 11:33:29 PM PDT by nickcarraway

Ebola conspiracy theories spreading fast as outbreak travels round globe - was deadly virus created in laboratory?

Conspiracy theories about Ebola are spreading as fast as the killer virus itself.

And with no known cure or vaccine, its potential origins vary wildly from it being a CIA-manufactured weapon to a cover for "cannibalistic rituals."

Angry crowds in Africa have also accused foreigners of bringing the virus into the country.

In April, the threat of violence forced Medecins Sans Frontieres to evacuate all its staff from a treatment centre in Guinea.

In Sierra Leone, which has the largest number of Ebola cases, thousands protested outside the country's main Ebola treatment facility in the eastern city of Kenema, where police had to disperse the crowd with tear gas.

Reports say the demonstration was sparked by a rumour from a nearby market that the disease was a ruse used to justify "cannibalistic rituals" being carried out in the hospital.

Well, AIDS likely was. But Ebola I don’t think so, probably just living in the deep jungle somewhere, somebody stumbled on it and brought it back to civilization.

Growing insanity will accompany the spreading virus, making a bad situation even more terrible.

It is already an epidemic. It is unbelievable that health professionals would bring it into the US.

I saw this related story at the link:

Ebola virus: British aid worker's diary reveals horror as SIX nurses die from killer bug

“Day 4 - I feel we’ve reached a tipping point. When I arrived in Liberia four weeks ago, there were four or five patients in the treatment centre. Now the centre is overflowing, we don’t know where to put people, the morgue is full, people are turning up with sick relatives.”

http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/ebola-virus-british-aid-workers-3956692#ixzz39JHaL6ZD

These reports on the ground are starting to sound a little...medieval.

Look back at the 1918 flu episode. Once you got to the point where hundreds in a hospital had the flu and needed constant round-the-clock attention, it was past the tipping point. The system was unable to handle it....people started to stay at home (thinking relatives would help them through it), and the rest is history.

The plague in London (1666) had similar stories. There are a fair number of people who got the plague....quickly went through a fever...and survived. To this day...no one can explain how they did it.

Bring Out Your Dead

Post to me or FReep mail to be on/off the Bring Out Your Dead ping list.

The purpose of the “Bring Out Your Dead” ping list (formerly the “Ebola” ping list) is very early warning of emerging pandemics, as such it has a high false positive rate.

So far the false positive rate is 100%.

At some point we may well have a high mortality pandemic, and likely as not the “Bring Out Your Dead” threads will miss the beginning entirely.

*sigh* Such is life, and death...

Just last year Canada had an employee steal Ebola DNA from one of their labs...Canada, Province of Manitoba, National Microbiology Laboratory, Winnipeg

Vials swiped from Canada’s National Microbiology Laboratory contained small amounts of genetic material from the Ebola virus. But Dr. Frank Plummer, head of the Winnipeg lab, says the Ebola gene posed no risk of infection and could only have been used to make a vaccine. Konan Michel Yao, 42, was caught trying to sneak 22 vials across the Manitoba-North Dakota border last week. Plummer says the missing vials went unnoticed because there are tens of thousands of them with non-infectious material in the laboratory’s refrigerators and freezers

Just last year the bio-lab in Texas “lost” vials. Monday, March 25, 2013

The Galveston National Laboratory lost one of five vials containing a deadly Venezuelan virus, according to the University of Texas Medical Branch, which owns the $174 million facility designed with the strictest security measures to hold the deadliest viruses in the country.

Like Ebola, the missing Guanarito virus causes hemorrhagic fever, an illness named for “bleeding under the skin, in internal organs or from body orifices like the mouth, eyes, or ears,” according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

Keep in mind Ebola-Reston while it appeared to be not a human threat at the time, it did appear to act like an airborne virus. No one knows if it was ever confirmed to be truly airborne? Only the top-secret guys know.

Also consider all the recent reports of lost deadly diseases out of the CDC and yeah ...I think there is a perfect disease deadly storm brewing. I think this is why they brought those two people back, this is a designer disease outbreak and they need to figure out where it got out from, if it is one of ours, if it is someone else’s, or if potentially a terrorist operation has stumbled onto something, or if it is from fallen war stock-pile that was missed.

This episode of ebola is different from past episodes. It is only about 60% lethal. Past versions have killed 90%. This one is in the city. Others have not got into the cities. At 90% it burned itself out quickly because it killed almost all of its infectees, apparently more quickly than the current outbreak does. This time around it can spread farther because more of its victims get to travel. So there has been a change, perhaps a natural mutation, perhaps not.

At the little poll they have with the story currently “created in a lab (on purpose)” is edging out “spread by bats/monkeys”.

I’m not sure what to think of that. Although I find it hard to believe that Africa, with all it’s problems and poverty, has the resources to set up nefarious labs that would spend time on such research.

So, they probably believe that the Bilderburg Group, or the Tri-lateral commission, or somesuch, secretly has funded these labs.

I don’t think it’s all that complicated. I think we live in a fallen world and it kinda, sorta s*cks here a lot of the time, and ebola is just a part of that right now.

I also think that quarantine is the only way to handle something like this and right now those protocols are not being followed, including by those who should most know how important it is.

Like the healthy US and Candian doctors who traveled back here commercially and then “quarantined” themselves. That’s not quarantine and they know it.

Biowar and the Apartheid Legacy
http://www.alternet.org/story/16095/biowar_and_the_apartheid_legacy/

A two-part story in the Washington Post on April 20 and 21 revealed that biological agents developed by the South African government during its apartheid days have fallen into private hands. Written by Post reporters Joby Warrick and John Mintz, the piece noted that unique, race-specific strains of biotoxins were available on the world market — for the right price or the right ideology...

...The Washington Post even noted, “Goosen says many scientists kept copies of organisms and documents in order to continue work on ‘dual-use’ projects with commercial as well as military applications.”


Where are those scientists today?

Lots and lots of interesting reading on this link:

Bioterror Bible
Exposing the coming Pandemic
https://sites.google.com/site/bioterrorbible/scapegoats-1/africa

Africa has been front and center in world news and events since 2011 with the “revolution” in Egypt, the removal of Gadhafi from Libya, the KONY 2012 hoax, the emergence of the Muslim Brotherhood, the allegations that U.S. President Barock Obama was born in Kenya, and most recently the massacre of 34 miners in South Africa.
The aforementioned news and events surrounding Africa are no accident, but rather a coordinated effort to bring Africa back into the hearts and minds of people worldwide just prior to 2012 global pandemic. Propaganda in way of the movie “Outbreak” and as well as numerous other bio-terror related news concerning Africaforeshadow the bio-terror plot for Africa.
Aside from the propaganda linking Africa to bio-terror (see below), the Africa Anthrax attacks occurred roughly one month after the 9/11 Anthrax Attacks in America. The 2001 attacks set-up Africa as a future bio-terror scapegoat and exhibited the earmarks of a false-flag/state sponsored terror operation.

In the aftermath of man-made bio-terror generated pandemic, the government and media will be feeding the public any number of different scapegoats allegedly responsible for the pandemic that will likely kill millions.

While some scapegoats (see below) are indeed plausible, it is much more likely that the live pathogens or agents responsible for the pandemic will likely be dispersed via

A) chemtrails by government airplanes or drones,
B) by the U.S. Postal Service via Tide detergent samples, C) by the government and medical establishment via tainted vaccines or by
D) the portable petri dish commonly known as the Trojan condom.

Police use tear gas to disperse crowds attacking Ebola bioweapons lab

Poor

Local people in Kenema rioted and attacked the Ebola hospital lab, funded by George Soros, Bill Gates and the Pentagon.

The mainstream media and local Sierra Leone police chief claim that a nurse who had warned locals that the lab was putting Ebola in circulation was “mentally ill”. That, though the country’s health ministry announced on its own facebook page that the lab was to be closed, Tulane University was to stop testing for Ebola, the CDC was required to deliver an official report on the lab’s activities and the CDC and WHO’s own documents state that Ebola comes from hospitals.

US bioweapons lab in Sierra Leone at the epicentre of Ebola outbreak

us-bioweapons-lab-in-sierra-leone-at-the-epicentre-of-ebola-outbreak

34 Votes

*US bioweapons lab with links to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation at core of Ebola epidemic

*CDC admits hospitals and vaccines cause Ebola

*UK and US mainstream media fuel Ebola hysteria

*The Telegraph hypes Ebola as a threat to Britain

*Epidemic and pandemic plans allow for implementation of martial law

A stunning piece of propaganda in establishment newspaper The Telegraph seems to be preparing the British public for a false flag Ebola outbreak at the Commonwealth Games starting in Glasgow on July 23.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/africaandindianocean/guinea/10942598/Ebola-out-of-control-in-West-Africa-as-health-workers-rush-to-trace-1500-possible-victims.html

The Telegraph buries a key aspect of the Story – the evidence that a US bioweapons lab in Sierra Leone with links to the Soros and Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is likely the origin of the current Ebola outbreak.

While The Telegraph buries facts about the existence of this hospital bioweapons research lab and also ignores information in the US Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC) Ebola fact sheet which identifies hospitals as the place where an Ebola outbreak is most likely to occur, Washington Post reporter Terence McCoy has entered the realm of fairy tales by blaming the current Ebola outbreak on deforestation,.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2014/07/08/how-deforestation-and-human-activity-could-be-to-blame-for-the-ebola-pandemic/?tid=hp_mm

“Like most matters involving an Ebola epidemic, chronicling its first horrifying infection is not an easy endeavor,” McCoy sighs.

It is easy, Terence. Just read the CDC’s Ebola Hemorrhagic Fever Information Packet which says that Ebola comes from hospitals and vaccinations in most cases.

http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dvrd/spb/mnpages/dispages/Fact_Sheets/Ebola_Fact_Booklet.pdf

The CDC Ebola fact sheet admits on the very first page that clinics and hospitals are “frequently” the places of Ebola outbreaks.

The CDC fact sheet also states that the first ever Ebola deaths in 1976 were caused by ” …(close personal contact and by use of contaminated needles and syringes in) hospitals/clinics” .

In the second ever Ebola outbreak in 1976 in Sudan killing 151 people, the “[]Disease was spread mainly through close personal contact within hospitals,” says the CDC in language which could not be plainer.

McCoy prefers, however, to misrepresent the dry facts concerning Ebola originating in hospitals, which everyone can read online, to excite fear in readers with entertaining theories.

“But even in circumstances in which details are hard to come by, certain similarities have emerged,” McCoy breathes to create suspense like the best fiction writers. ” The first contact often occurs in remote, rural communities where a victim handles an infected animal carcass, and things quickly progress downward from there.”

His own report quickly spirals downwards by attributing the current Ebola outbreak to deforestation while providing no evidence.

McCoy also hypes the notion that infected animals cause Ebola, again ignoring the CDC fact sheet, which admits that in cases when humans came into contact with infected monkeys in US quarantine facilities, humans did not get sick or die from Ebola.

Local people in West Africa appear to know without having to read the CDC Ebola fact sheet that hospitals and medical staff are spreading Ebola. The Telegraph reports people wielding knives surrounded a Red Cross vehicle in Guinea.

The involvement of hospitals would also explain why Ebola has appeared in this part of Africa for the first time ever and in so many different locations at almost the same time.

Given that the CDC itself admits that hospitals are, in fact, the likely source of any Ebola outbreak, the question arises which specific hospital could be the origin of the current Ebola outbreak?

At the epicentre of the current Ebola epidemic is the Kenema Government Hospital in Sierra Leone, which houses a US a biosecurity level 2 bioweapons research lab with links to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Soros Foundation.

US biodefense scientists have been working at the lab on viral fevers such as Ebola since 2011 at least.

http://www.nti.org/gsn/article/biodefense-scientists-fight-lassa-fever/

The partners and people leading the viral fever bioweapons lab inside Kenema Government Hospital read like a roll call of New World Order organizations.

“”The Consortium is a collaboration between Tulane, Scripps Research Institute, Broad Institute, Harvard University, University of California at San Diego, University of Texas Medical Branch, Autoimmune Technologies LLC, Corgenix Medical Corporation, Kenema Government Hospital (Sierra Leone), Irrua Specialist Teaching Hospital (Nigeria) and various other partners in West Africa. …The Consortium intends to expand this program to include other important infectious agents such as Ebola, Marburg and other Arenaviruses that are of great concern to public health and bioterrorism,” states the bioweapons lab website.

http://vhfc.org/consortium

The website admits that Professor Robert F. Garry is ” currently managing the consortium of scientists who are developing modern diagnostics for several biodefense pathogens.”

http://vhfc.org/consortium/people/garry

Dr James E. Robinson ” is a collaborating investigator in four large consortia projects funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.”

http://vhfc.org/consortium/people/robinson

Dr Pardis Sabeti has received fellowships from the Rhodes Scholarship, the Soros Fellowship, L’Oreal For Women in Science Fellowship, according to the website.

http://vhfc.org/consortium/people/sabeti

Scientist Stephen Gire has links to the CDC and US military.

He “spent time at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention researching vector-borne infectious diseases. He then moved on to complete a Masters of Public Health at Columbia University and a three-year fellowship with the United States Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID). He has researched viruses such as West Nile, Dengue Fever, Monkeypox and Ebola, and he conducts on-site training in biological techniques to laboratory staff in the developing world.”

http://vhfc.org/consortium/people/gire

Connecting the dots, it is reasonable to ask for an investigation into whether this particular US bioweapons lab at the geographical epicentre of the current Ebola outbreak actually caused the Ebola outbreak.

In 2009, Baxter in Austria was caught contaminating 72 kilos of seasonal flu with the deadly bird flu virus in its biosecurity level 3 laboratory. It later emerged from documents posted on Wikileaks that Baxter was a US defense or military asset.

Facts and documents as well as current mainstream media hype point to plans for false flag Ebola bioterrorism attacks in hospitals and clinics against US and UK citizens using occasions like the Commonwealth Games in Scotland to spread panic.

The purpose is to implement martial law measures contained in epidemic and pandemic plans and so gain total control of the population at a time when the financial system is close to collapse.

The plague in London (1666) had similar stories. There are a fair number of people who got the plague....quickly went through a fever...and survived. To this day...no one can explain how they did it.

Possibly variations in the immune system enabled them to survive. I don't know about the plague in London, but I do recall reading that people whose European ancestors survived the plague commonly have an immune system variant that is rare in other populations.

Reports of recent outbreaks have the disease being initiated in the cities, then spreading to the jungles, while past occurrences had a reverse vector.

I love that people think we actually have the technology to custom design a virus with specific characteristics.

For all of our advanced technology, the best we can do is take genes that already exist in nature and mix them up in new ways. Even to do that, we use tools designed by nature. We are not inventors of biological systems...we just take what is already there and use it for our purposes. Even if someone synthesizes a genome using purely chemical techniques—they only make a copy of what nature already invented.

Well...

Not to get to deep into conspiracy mode, but there is a Level 4 bio-lab near Kansas City that, among other things, was reputed to be working on weaponized anthrax and, get this, ebola. I remember the uproar when this facility came online. Ask them.

But Dr. Frank Plummer, head of the Winnipeg lab, says the Ebola gene posed no risk of infection and could only have been used to make a vaccine.

Fascinating. May I ask where you found this info? The company with the most promising Ebola vaccine is Tekmira, a Canadian (BC) company now negotiating with the FDA to release it. Google Tekmira news, lots of articles about their stock rising in the last few days. Tekmira.com has detailed info on their vaccine and their dealings with the FDA.

I'm not suggesting that the disappearance of Ebola DNA material is related to Tekmira, but perhaps related to another group trying to develop meds.

Hopefully, that's all it is; Ebola virus in the wrong hands could be catastrophic.

poll they have with the story currently “created in a lab (on purpose)” is edging out “spread by bats/monkeys”. I’m not sure what to think of that.

A few days ago, an article about Ebola…I think Black Agnes posted it…gave details about a tribal practice of relatives drinking the corpse's blood. "People" who can do that are extremely resistant to education, perhaps incapable of learning anything scientific.

That's the sort of thing we're up against.

We have to knock on every door, visit every market and spread the word in every church and every mosque. To do so, we urgently need more people, more funds, more partners."

More money! They've supposedly been knocking on doors for 40 years so that's obviously not working. Of course, we've been showing them how to dig water wells for decades longer than that and they still haven't a clue. If they truly wanted to better themselves, they easily could and it wouldn't take a dime.

Stop AIDS, keep your pants zipped.

Stop ebola, don't leave the victims' bodies laying in the streets for animals to eat on and then eat the animals. And don't fly all over the world spreading it everywhere.

Stop a hundred other diseases by washing your hands and keeping the house clean. It's not rocket science.

As for them running from the health workers, well, yeah. I'd run too if a bunch of folks in hazmat showed up at my house wanting to take me because when they took Uncle Fred we never saw him again.

Eating onions might not work for ebola but onions and garlic have antibacterial qualities so eat up and use them as poultices.

Eating mangoes might not be a good thing because they're a cousin to poison ivy. There's a substance between the skin and the fruit that can cause people to break out just like with poison ivy.

Drinking milk may ease a sore throat but brings on the mucus so that depends on what is causing the soreness. It also is a way to get protein in a liquid form. Bottom line on these home remedies is that there is some truth behind them but not for ebola.

As with everything, follow the money. Wonder who they paid off and are kissing up to. Could be this administration's hands were greased and that's why (or part of the reason why) these two were brought back here.
