Ebola outbreak may already be uncontrollable; Monsanto invests in Ebola treatment company as pandemic spreads

By Mike Adams via Natural News, 31 August 2014

A global outbreak of deadly Ebola is underway and has crossed national borders. One infected victim of the horrifying disease flew on international flights, vomiting on board and exposing hundreds of people to the deadly virus which can be transmitted through airborne particles. Ebola has an 8-10 day incubation period, meaning thousands of people could be carrying it right now and spreading it across the cities of the world without even knowing it.

Passengers in Hong Kong and the UK have already shown symptoms of the disease and are being tested, reports USA Today. (2) The Peace Corps has evacuated its volunteers from the region after two were exposed to Ebola. (3)

"Expert claims panic over death of U.S. man in Nigeria is 'justified'" reports the Daily Mail. (1) "He warned the spread of Ebola could become a global pandemic."

Ebola is the closest thing to real-life zombie infections

With apologies to those victims who have suffered the horrible fate of Ebola, I'm offering a medically accurate description here as a warning to everybody else. Believe me when I say you do NOT want to contract Ebola. Warning: Graphic language below.

Ebola is a gruesome disease that causes cells in the body to self-destruct, resulting in massive internal and external bleeding. In its late stages, Ebola can cause the victim to experience convulsions, vomiting and bleeding from the eyes and ears while convulsing, flinging blood all over the room and anyone standing nearby, thereby infecting those people as well. This gruesome ending is the reason Ebola spreads so effectively. The virus "weaponizes" the blood, then causes the victim to fling it around on everyone else almost like you might see depicted in some horror zombie flick.

"Haemorrhaging symptoms begin 4 - 5 days after onset, which includes hemorrhagic conjunctivitis, pharyngitis, bleeding gums, oral/lip ulceration, hematemesis, melena, hematuria, epistaxis, and vaginal bleeding," reports the Pathogen Safety Data Sheet from the Public Health Agency of Canada. (8) That same publication also explains, "There are no known antiviral treatments available for human infections."

Read that again: There are NO KNOWN TREATMENTS for human infections.

Sierra Leone's top Ebola doctor tragically died yesterday from an Ebola infection. Although well trained in infectious disease, even he underestimated the ability of this insidious killer to leap from person to person. Around half of those infected with Ebola die, making it one of the most fatal diseases known to modern medical science. And yet medical staff around the world still aren't exercising sufficient precautions when interfacing with infected patients.

Monsanto and Dept. of Defense help fund pharma company that could earn billions from Ebola treatment

There are some experimental drugs under development by pharma companies that show some promise, but nothing is commercialized yet. (9)

One fascinating development worth investigating further is that TEKMIRA Pharmaceuticals, a company working on an anti-Ebola drug, just received a $1.5 million cash infusion from none other than Monsanto. Click here to read the press release, which states "Tekmira Pharmaceuticals Corporation is a biopharmaceutical company focused on advancing novel RNAi therapeutics and providing its leading lipid nanoparticle (LNP) delivery technology to pharmaceutical partners."

The money from Monsanto is reportedly related to the company's developed of RNAi technology used in agriculture. The deal is valued at up to $86.2 million, according to the WSJ. (11)

Another press release about Tekmira reveals a $140 million contract with the U.S. military for Ebola treatment drugs:

TKM-Ebola, an anti-Ebola virus RNAi therapeutic, is being developed under a $140 million contract with the U.S. Department of Defense's Medical Countermeasure Systems BioDefense Therapeutics (MCS-BDTX) Joint Product Management Office.

Additional Tekmira partnership are listed at this Tekmira web page.

Not to invoke any charges of collusion or conspiracy here, but a whole lot of people are going to have raised eyebrows over the fact that Monsanto just happened to be giving a cash infusion to a key pharma company working on an Ebola cure right in the middle of a highly-publicized Ebola outbreak which could create huge market demand for the drugs. The fact that the U.S. Department of Defense is also involved with all this is going to have alternative news websites digging hard for additional links.

Sadly, the history of medicine reveals that drug companies, the CDC and the WHO have repeatedly played up the severity of disease outbreaks in order to promote sales of treatment drugs. I'm not saying this outbreak isn't very real and very alarming, of course. It is real. But we always have to be suspicious when windfalls profits just happen to line up for certain corporations following global outbreaks of infectious disease. Vaccine manufacturers, remember, made billions off the false swine flu scare, and tens of millions of dollars in stockpiled swine flu vaccines later had to be destroyed by the governments that panicked and purchased them.

Has air travel doomed humanity to a pandemic outbreak?

Air travel creates the "perfect storm" for Ebola to devastate humanity. It all starts with these irrefutable facts about air travel:

1) All passengers are confined to the same enclosed space.

2) All passengers are breathing THE SAME AIR.

3) Ebola can become airborne via very small particles in the air, and just a single Ebola virus riding on a dust particle is sufficient to infect a human being (see below).

4) Following the flight, infected passengers then intermingle with thousands of other people at the airport, each doing to a different unique destination somewhere else across the country or around the world.

5) The speed of air travel vastly out-paces the speed of governments being able to deploy infectious disease prevention teams.

A global pandemic wipeout from Ebola, in other words, could originate from a single person on a single international flight. And it could circle the globe in less than 48 hours.

Just one organism is sufficient to infect a new host

Just how much Ebola virus does it take to infect someone? Alarmingly, as the Public Health Agency of Canada explains, "1 - 10 aerosolized organisms are sufficient to cause infection in humans." (8)

Read that again: it takes just ONE aerosolized organism (a microscopic virus riding on a dust particle) to cause a full-blown infection in humans. This is why one man vomiting on an international flight can infect dozens or hundreds of other people all at once.

Some experts fear that has already happened. As the Daily Mail reports: (1)

Nigerian health officials are in the process of trying to trace 30,000 people, believed to be at risk of contracting the highly-infectious virus, following the death of Patrick Sawyer in Lagos. It comes as Nigerian actor Jim Lyke sparked outrage, posting a picture of himself wearing an Ebola mask while sitting in a first class airport lounge as he fled Liberia.

Dave Hodges of The Commonsense Show reports: (7)

A desperate search is on to find the hundreds of passengers who flew on the same jets as Sawyer. A total of 59 passengers and crew are estimated to have come into contact with Sawyer and effort is being made to track each individual down. There is an inherent problem with this "track down". Presumably, some of the passengers connected to other flights, which known to be the case. Let's just say for the sake of argument that only 20 people, a low estimate given the nature of the airports that Sawyer was traveling in, were connecting to other flights, the spread of the virus would quickly expand beyond any possibility of containment because in less than a half a day, nearly a half a million people would be potentially exposed. Within a matter of a couple of hours, Sawyer's infected fellow travelers would each have made contact with 200 other passengers and crew. Hours later, these flights would land and these people would go home to the friends, families and coworkers across several continents.

CBS News adds: (4)

"Witnesses say Sawyer, a 40-year-old Liberian Finance Ministry employee en route to a conference in Nigeria, was vomiting and had diarrhea aboard at least one of his flights with some 50 other passengers aboard. Ebola can be contracted from traces of feces or vomit, experts say."

American family members quarantined in Texas

A U.S. doctor named Dr. Kent Brantly has reportedly contracted Ebola. "Brantly and the couple's 3- and 5-year-old children left Liberia for a scheduled visit to the United States on July 20. Days later, Kent Brantly quarantined himself in the isolation ward of a hospital where he had been treating Ebola patients after testing positive for the disease," reports CBS News. (3)

That same story goes on to say, "Amber Brantly and the children are in Abilene, Texas, under a 21-day fever watch," which is essentially a quarantine. This means the necessary quarantine of American citizens on U.S. soil has already begun.

Nobody is yet talking about what all this might mean if a large U.S. city shows an outbreak of infections. Will the federal government use the military to quarantine an entire city? Ultimately, it must! And make no mistake: this possibility is already written up and on the books for national emergencies. One declaration of martial law is all that's required to seal off an entire U.S. city at gunpoint.

Another CBS News article reports: (4)

"If it gets into a big city, that's everybody's worse nightmare," said Dr. Tim Geisbert, a professor of microbiology and immunology at University of Texas Medical Branch, in an interview with CBS News. "It gets harder to control then. How do you quarantine a big city?"

The answer, by the way, is by deploying America's armed forces against its own citizens in a domestic national emergency scenario. Everybody in the federal government already knows that. It's only the mainstream media that pretends such plans don't already exist.

Ebola detection kits deployed to all 50 U.S. states

Although the federal government's official reaction to all this is low-key, in truth the U.S. government is rapidly preparing for the possibility of an Ebola outbreak reaching the continental USA.

As reported above, the U.S. Department of Defense already has a $140 million contract awarded to Tekmira for its Ebola treatment drugs.

Additionally, as reports: (5)

"The Department of Defense informed Congress that it has deployed biological diagnostic systems to National Guard support teams in all 50 states, according to a report published by the Committee on Armed Services. Some 340 Joint Biological Agent Identification and Diagnostic System (JBAIDS) units have thus far been given to emergency response personnel. The systems are "rapid, reliable, and [provide] simultaneous identification of specific biological agents and pathogens."

On one hand, we might all applaud the government's preparedness actions in all this. It's smart to have diagnostic systems deployed nationwide, of course. But it begs the question: When was the government planning on telling the public about all this? Probably never. There's no sense in causing a panic when half the people won't survive an outbreak anyway, they figure.

The perfect bioweapon against humanity?

I also need to make you urgently aware that Ebola is a "perfect" bioweapon. Because of its ability to survive storage and still function many days, weeks or years later, it could be very easily harvested from infected victims and then preserved using nothing more than a common food dehydrator.

As the Public Health Agency of Canada explains: (8)

The virus can survive in liquid or dried material for a number of days (23). Infectivity is found to be stable at room temperature or at 4 (C) for several days, and indefinitely stable at -70 C.

To translate this into laymen's terms, this means the Ebola virus can be:

• Stored in a liquid vial and easily smuggled across international borders.

• Dehydrated and stored in a dried state, then easily smuggled.

• Frozen at very low temperatures where it remains viable indefinitely.

Once dried, contained or frozen, Ebola pathogens can be smuggled into target countries with ridiculous ease. In the United States, for example, people can literally walk right through our Southern open borders with zero security whatsoever.

Open borders is an open invitation for bioweapons terrorism

Once inside the target country, a bioweapons terrorist could then easily infect people in public transit hubs such as subway stations, airports, bus stations and so on. Unfortunately, spraying a few Ebola particles into people's faces is ridiculously easy, especially if the terrorist carrying out the activities decides he is on a suicide mission and doesn't care about self-exposure.

An outbreak of Ebola in a major U.S. city would quite literally threaten the public health of the entire nation. That's why an "open borders" policy in the middle of a global Ebola outbreak is unconscionable from the point of view of public health. CDC officials must be tearing their hair out over this issue.

Think about it: America is a country where public health officials freak out and go crazy when two children acquire whooping cough in a public school in Maryland. But when tens of thousands of people are streaming into the country, unbounded, with near-zero medical scrutiny in the middle of an international Ebola outbreak, federal officials do almost nothing at all. If there is an Ebola outbreak in the U.S., this is most likely how it will arrive.

Ebola is not airborne; therefore, you will not catch the disease on a plane. You must come into contact with bodily fluids to contact the disease. Please do not point a finger of intolerance in the direction of the brown people on the boarder. There is a border problem; however, the children crossing are not responsible for bringing Ebola into the country. If you want to make a case concerning illegal immigration, I think that would be honorable; however, it is dishonorable to make false accusations about a certain group of people to spread fear. The President should secure the border, because he is sworn to-do so. He should do it out of responsibility not out of fear of the brown people.

As a nurse, I am following information re transmission of Ebola. No, it does not seem to be airborne, or transmitted via droplet, but it has been found in a number of body fluids, including saliva, vomitus, tears, breastmilk and semen. Research is still quite limited and the sample sets are small, with lots of room for error----in other words, I believe the jury is not quite in on the entire question of transmission. My personal approach is not to be cavalier about this disease, and to remain grounded in my spirituality. I do not choose fear. I choose and create a future of love and health and well-being for all. That means that even if "The Powers That Were" try to spread it across the planet, it will not be successful, because we love-beings are now more powerful.

Laron said...

I found this article quite fearful and its not the type of thing I would usually just repost because of that reason. It did however do a good job and covering a large number of facts about Ebola and the situation in general.

There was two reasons to post this, one was to get peoples attention that this is a real situation, it's not just another disease, it's actually spreading in a big way. It's a health issue.

The second is because it directly relates to the shift and past predictions from sources such as the webbot and Nosty, in relation to what is meant to occur during the time of the shift. This is likely a big 'hit' in relation to that and its starting to closely match the language of a disease that the webbot picked up for a time period last year within the early IDIR's. (based on my stretching of time article, and recent factors, it makes sense of the timing of this to be about now) There are many disease outbreaks on top of this one, within the past few months, which all contribute to this situation being unique.

Similar to what you said MT, the reasons we get sick are not as simple as just being infected, there are so many factors involved. We could come into contact with any disease, yet based on these factors, we don't have to be infected just because we were in contact with it. A positive attitude is a key element, and fear is not helpful at all.

Steve said...

Thanks for the article Laron. Could you do same thing for all other events. Let us know which even has relation to the Shift after their manifestation.

mtpeach said...

Yes, YES, Laron, I agree. A negative outlook has been shown to decrease immune functioning, and a positive outlook has been shown to improve it.

I figured one of the heavy weight epidemics would be pulled out sooner or later, and who knows what a vaccine would do too....Well, I am glad to know of this. It is what real news is for. Good to look at all angles and stay level, open and patient as we can be. This is one I will keep to myself for now even though I want to run crying to my housemates in a way. OMG. Walking my talk, staying real and positive. Please keep us informed. Thanks so much!

Unless of course, there is no threat, and it's just more fear-porn being pumped into the zeitgeist. Nothing fears like fear.

This from Lynn @ Psychic Focus:
Q. Thank you for all your work. I was wondering if you could do a reading on the Ebola virus that is spreading in Africa. Do you see it coming to the US? Is the government allowing illegal immigrants into the country who are infected? Is that on purpose? How can we protect ourselves from this if it spreads? Will colloidal Silver, hemp seed oil, orange oil, menuka honey... or any other all natural remedies to help our body withstand such a epidemic?

A. When I focus on this I don't see an epidemic in the US any time in the near future. I then try to focus on preventative measures. I don't see how to prevent it, so I focused on the healing. I get that everything you need to heal yourself is in your environment, you just have to figure out what it is. Then I saw an image of what looked like a redwood tree (huge tree and the bark was "shaggy" looking), and someone was taking/peeling the bark off of it. I see a salve being made from this redwood bark and being used on a patient. I got the bark aided in recovery, and once recovered they had a natural immunity from this illness.

Laron said...

Yeah, I can do that Steve.

Laron said...

This is possible DaDa, but it seems to be the only in the past 18 months or so which is getting so much attention and has such a high death rate, as well as having these really bad symptoms.

angelicview said...

As I have said before, I am not Christian. But this Ebola - and the point that you have made, mtpeach - remind me of when Jesus visited the Leprosy colonies. I read Dolores Cannon's book, "They Walked With Jesus", and in it she has described through her hypnosis subjects that Jesus would often visit the Leprosy colonies and care for the victims of this disease. It is spread in a similar manner to Ebola. He was not afraid. He would go there to help with medical treatments, some healings (some complete healings, if it was appropriate for that individual), and just to provide comfort and emotional support of the victims. He went into a place that most people feared to tread.

Laron Fereira said...

A reader sent in this information which I have reworded a bit. Some people may find it helpful.

"The shaggy bark from a red tree that was mentioned as a treatment for ebola sounds like bark from a juniper tree, which many call a cedar tree. They are very common throughout the western states. (USA) There are 4 in our front yard and countless others in the woods behind us. I included a picture for reference. (see link below)

I found some links about the bark being used for healing among the Native American population. It can be used for tea, salves, and as a wrapping. It can be toxic, and should be used with great care. Removing the bark can damage the tree, so that needs to be done by a knowledgeable person. For example, if I get the sap on my skin, it raises welts. Also, I am highly allergic to the pollen. Yet, my husband is totally unaffected.

In other words – the bark collection and use should be done by people who know what they are doing. I don’t want people to run around willy-nilly stripping bark and making salves."

You guys may want to read 'The Hot Zone' by Richard Preston, an Ebola researcher at the CDC if I'm not mistaken. Written 20 years ago but still a page turner.

I'm curious, in relation to the shift, why a pandemic and/or Earth related catastrophe would be necessary? Is it basically to send most souls back to the spirit world so that Earth can reclaim itself? Ebola seems like a very traumatic way to go. It seems much easier and less traumatic for everyone involved if we were just hit by a huge meteor. :(

Laron Fereira said...

My take on the disease outbreak was not that it was about taking lives, just that there would be a period of time where there would be a lot of them. With relation to the webbot, there was forecast a number of different ones, but there seemed to be one particular one which is similar to this one, it just was never named as it wasn't clear what it was. The webbot never showed it would get really bad, and its focus is usually on the USA, just that it would impact life and how people lived it for a while, such as people deciding not to shake hands and meetings being impacted.

As for the Earth, she is going through her own changes on a conscious and physical level and changes bring earth changes. The earth expansion theory comes in then and a pole reversal as well. So this is just.. mother nature you could say, reacting to her own changes, but because of what humans have done to the planet and may continue to do, such as letting of nuclear weapons, these acts could/will make things worse.

Going by many predictions/forecasts, there seemed to be a number of specific events that were always going to happen and it's not really about the deeper meaning in relation to it being necessary... it just seems to be mandatory.

Another way to look at this is that some of the changes will take the cabal / dark forces out of play as well.

And even another way to look at the situation is that a cleansing was always going to take place, the form of it and the degree was going to be a bit unpredictable, based upon the state of the global consciousness. People are also moving onto the new earth(s) via the shift in consciousness and there are many ways to make that transition.

While all these different answers are possibly right, there are many ways to look at the reasons around all of this.
