    Shutdown: A Single Ebola Patient Has Overwhelmed The System: Dallas Hospital Forced To Close Emergency Room

    emergency-room-waiting-area(Pictured: Emergency room waiting area under regular conditions. How will hospitals manage and isolate the influx of patients that would storm hospitals in the middle of an Ebola outbreak?)

    Despite numerous procedural missteps over the course of the last several weeks, the Centers for Disease control want the American public to believe they have everything under control.

    But with a second case now being confirmed in Dallas, one can’t help but consider that these so-called ‘protocols’ set forth by the CDC are either inadequate, or they are being wholly mismanaged.

    Where were the Hazmat suits for the police officers and clean-up crew that were first to arrive at Duncan’s Ebola-stricken apartment? Or what about the ambulance that carried numerous patients and personnel for 48 hours after Duncan was dropped off at the hospital before anyone realized it needed to be isolated? Or how about the quarantine procedures, which left Duncan’s extended relatives in an apartment with no established procedure for  supplying the detainees with food? And why were others who were living in apartments adjacent to these, who had close proximity to  Duncan’s ventilation systems, not moved?  Moreover, why did the Obama administration wait almost two weeks before suggesting that we should be screening passengers arriving in the United States from flights originating in Africa?

    These are just a handful of the inconsistencies which suggest, among other things, that the CDC was caught completely off guard and unprepared.

    But if that’s not enough to convince you that we have a serious problem with emergency response protocols for pandemics and outbreaks, then perhaps the fact that a single Ebola patient in Dallas overwhelmed the system to such an extent that Texas Presbyterian had to shut down their emergency room to new patients.

    The CDC now is recommending that the Dallas hospital, Texas Health Presbyterian, keep the number of workers treating possible Ebola patients to an “absolute minimum,” Frieden said. The agency also wants the hospital to provide a full-time infection control officer to ensure that safety measures are followed with Ebola patients.

    Varga did not identify the worker and said her family has “requested total privacy.”

    The hospital announced Sunday that its emergency department had stopped until further notice accepting patients brought by ambulance “because of limitations in staffed capacity,” a step known as “diversion.”

    “While we are on diversion we are also using this time to further expand the margin of safety by triple-checking our full compliance with updated CDC guidelines,” the hospital said. “We are also continuing to monitor all staff who had some relation to Mr. Duncan’s care even if they are not assumed to be at significant risk of infection.”

    The infected woman sought care immediately after her symptoms developed and was placed in isolation at the hospital, Frieden said. (News Observer)

    That’s right. The hospital literally closed its doors to new patients.

    Consider for a moment what something like this might look like if  several cases popped up throughout a major metro area simultaneously. Would all of the hospitals to which those infected with Ebola were taken then shut their doors to new patients?

    What this means for you is very simple and it’s something that members of the preparedness community have been warning about since before Ebola was even on the CDC’s domestic radar.

    If this virus (or any other contagion) spreads like it did in Africa, our entire health care system will be paralyzed.

    This means that whether a person needs medical attention for a viral infection or a broken arm, they will have nowhere to go for help.

    Of course, CDC director Thomas Frieden would disagree. Ebola, as he so adamantly stated back in July, is simply not in the cards for America.

    We are sure that the medical professionals at the CDC and other government agencies are the cream of the crop. It’s not that they are incapable of doing their jobs. The problem lies at the top of the decision-making hierarchy and one government emergency manager claims that these officials are are not only violating all containment and response protocols, but they are doing so on purpose.

    Whether their reasons for this are politically motivated – like causing a panic so they can run GOP-blame commercials – or something even more sinister, they are playing a very dangerous game with the lives of 300 million Americans. Alarmingly, the CDC’s director admitted today that they’ve completely dropped the ball, despite every assurance that they were ready for Ebola. “We have to rethink the way we address Ebola infection control,” Frieden said at a press conference.

    This ‘rethinking’ should include real, actionable preventative measures that can be taken by the American public, something the CDC has failed to provide thus far in any serious capacity. Given the (mis)handling of Ebola in the United States thus far, it’s probably about time each individual and family take it upon themselves to establish a pandemic preparedness plan and protocols to deal with this crisis if it continues to spread.

    Or, you can just sit back and relax knowing that President Obama has you and your family’s interests at heart while he’s taking a swing on the Back Nine for the 200th time in his Presidency.

      President Obola loves you. Nothing bad will happen. Nothing to see here, folks…move along.

      Fore!

      • durango kidd says:

        Dallas must be quarantined. All roads in and out, all railroads, all airlines shut down. And if not quarantined then Obola will go “viral”.

        Dallas must be sterilized. :-(

        • Walt Kowalski says:

          Which is why I have been saying…..if you are not heading to your bugout location now…or very soon…you may not make it.

          And this applies particularly to those in Dallas and north Texas…which is where I am.

          I have nowhere to go…so I and my family are going to have to hunker down.

          This could go bad very quickly.

          • SterlingSilver says:

            Obola’s New healthcare plug:

            “If you’ve currently got Obola, you can keep Obola. I promise. Cause its the right thing to do!”

            • Paranoid says:

              Mac; a couple of comments: Things are moving so fast I think it would be a good idea if you have the time you wrote/added a story.Second; did you change your site. I now have to go to the bottom of a story to add a comment, and up and down arrows no longer work. Is something wrong?

              • Anonymous says:

                Trying to blame emergency personnel is just crazy. Blame Obama, blame the FAA for not stopping all flights to the US. Emergency personnel do the best they can and most are very dedicated to their work. How about just shoot and bag any suspected Ebola Victims and incinerate their bodies immedietly. It may be the only way to stop this. Seriously.

                • WhoWuddaThunkIt says:

                  BEWARE: If you handle Cash Money, you are opening up yourself to EBOLA. The Ebola Virus can remain active on surfaces for more than 6 Days. If the surface is moist, dark and cool. So if someone hands you money out of their damp sweaty pants pockets, beware. I bet money is the largest transfer of disease, bacteria and viruses out there. After handling money do NOT wipe your nose of mouth, wash your hands immediately. I suggest put your paper money in the Microwave Oven for 10 seconds to zap the bacteria or viruses. Just a thought.

                • The Old Coach says:

                  Nuking dry dollar bills won’t do anything at all. You’d have to soak the paper with water so that the microwave energy will generate enough heat to do the job. Vinegar and alcohol will kill virus, so better you have a tray of either one around to soak your money in.

                • laura m. says:

                  Medical personnel at the Dallas Hospital and all airline personnel involved with the airline coming and going from west Africa need to walk off the job now. CDC and gov allowing flights in and out daily to spread diseases incl Marburg. Bill O’Reilly, Megan Kelly, Judge Jeanine, and many others say stop the flights. Common sense. Worthless cowards in congress refuse to speak out on this.

                • yourmotherwaswrong says:

                  the durango kidd says:

                  “Dallas must be sterilized.”

                  And when Ebola is found in Phoenix, will you call for the “sterilization” of the Valley of the Sun?

                  ???

              • Rodster says:

                What we need are more open borders, 1st class flights from Africa. Now that’ll fix the problem. This is what happens when an Empire is in decline and collapsing, all at the hands of corrupt, criminal politicians. Again, this is all going according to their plan. They want this to spread.

                • Calgagus says:

                  They cant push global warming so they give us global eboling.

                • laura m. says:

                  Rodster and anyone reading this: Agree, scum of the earth politicians are useless slackers. Save gas and time and stay home in Nov elections which will not produce anything useful. Politicians are destroying the country and selling out our jobs for decades now. Politicians even had Gen Patton and JFK killed to hush them up.

              • Warchild Dammit! says:

                Paranoid,I think might be your computer as mine working i.e. arrows and all,if this reply seen then site would seem OK.

              • KY Mom says:

                Dems air ads BLAMING Republicans for Ebola.
                Yet, ignore this…

                Obama’s budget plan was to CUT CDC Funding by $72 MILLION – for Public Health Preparedness and Response

                “The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is currently blasting out ads accusing Republicans of voting to cut CDC’s Ebola-fighting capabilities in February 2011 by voting for a bill to cut $60 billion from the federal budget, including from the CDC, in anticipation of the fiscal year 2012 budget battle. The House passed the bill on Feb. 19, 2011, but the bill never passed the Senate.

                But the Obama administration proposed to cut CDC funding, including for public health preparedness and response, in its very own budget proposal released the very same week as the House vote.

                Obama’s original budget plan for fiscal year 2012 cut funding for a CDC public health emergency preparedness program by $72 MILLION. The proposed cuts would have taken money away from municipal and state health departments to hire health workers and monitor for public health hazards and disease outbreaks.”

                Obama Signs Executive Order 13295 – Detention of Americans with “Respiratory Illnesses”

                July of this year, President Obama signed into law an amendment to the Executive Order 13295, which redefines who can be quarantined and why. This does not bode well for a nation that could potentially face an Ebola pandemic. It smacks of pre-meditated bio-warfare and martial law on a nation’s own citizens.

                This means that any police officer or ‘health official’ can, without question, and on suspicion alone, quarantine someone simply for showing any sign of ‘respiratory illness.’ None other than the war-mongering Bush Administration, first put the order into place, originally meant to quarantine victims of SARS. Ebola just happened to be listed on the original executive order, too, signed by Bush. But now, with the exception of influenza, Americans can be detained for any health concern, including Ebola, even if it is not named as such.

                  Speaking of roadblocks, Recently I was traveling southbound on 95 out of vegas and just before the 95/93 split next to a big casino sign I saw what looked just like a roadblock check station semi hidden behind the sign! It was a perfect chokepoint! Ever wonder why the poles and cables along the major interstates so theres no way to cross? Ever wonder why all of a sudden all the construction on interstates? Ever wonder why all the staged concrete barriers? This was imo a definate check station waiting in the wings. Remember the article about DHS ordering 30,000 bullet proof checkpoint stations? If I go back by that way I will stop and take some pics and send them to Mac. M-fer, this is gettin real… :)

            The scary thing is, what do those of us who do not have the resources to have a bug out location do? Hunkering down is a scary proposition as it may well lead one to being herded into a FEMA camp, or being shot for resisting the call to do so. Hopefully having food, water and some PPE will be enough.

            • ready down under says:

              Winston, even if Ebola or a mutation goes airborne provided you can isolate yourself and family at home and can avoid any and all contact with others you have as good a chance as anyone IMO. Unless you live in a high rise apartment block – things can get very hinky in places like that very quickly.

              You’ll have to count on a LONG time hunkered down though and many wont have a choice. Can you last totally independently for 6 months Winston? If not, and there is no chance of a BOL, might be time for a long hard look at what you have to do to get to that stage.

              All the best, lots of people here in your corner!

                I live in a poor suburban neighborhood in a single family home I own. Sadly, I work in food service and though I can put money aside on occasion, my situation is complicated as the house I live in needs a lot of work and all my money is being split between fixing it and returning to school (without student loans) so I can get a better job. I just hope and pray that ebola gets stopped where it is. If it isn’t, I am a likely contact for someone with the disease because of my employment in the service industry (I deliver food for a living). If it starts to spread in my area I will have little choice but to leave my job and shelter in place. I do have food and water mostly taken care of, but it will be at least March or April until I can start harvesting from my garden again. I just don’t think I could last until then before civil unrest overtakes my area in the case of an ebola outbreak.

                  Winston, don’t forget it’s a cash only job and you can usually charge 30-40 bux an hour and undercut the competition by 60% if your good at it. Unless you want to spend the megabux and get a contractors license and have a shitload of overhead don’t get involved in grid tied solar. In order for people to get the rebates on solar they have to have a licensed contractor do the job. BUT! They have short sightedness as they get a cookie (rebate) then pay out the ass in more property tax forever lol. Some states don’t add that to the property tax BUT, do you think that will last for long? Off grid solar can be a little complex but with the right training it can be very profitable! If you want to have a good reputation do not ever use these brands… Trojan, Xantrex, Magnum energy, Some good brands are>> US Battery, Outback, Midnight solar, Kyocera. Talesun. Ok my man tear it up! :)

We saved 10% did without avoided debt like the plague and invested in things that grew while we where sleeping. I relocated to where in now at just for the reason to increase the chances of survival for me & mine. higher elevation . low population. predominately white race. and lots of national forest that have hundreds of caves.

                  Winston, I made about that for a long time till I finally got a break. I do side work setting people up with off grid solar. Theres a good market for it and if you are electrically knowledgeable you could do it too! Solar is completely different than AC house power you need to know wtf your doing. Wire sizing is a hell of a lot bigger than AC. If you have a few extra bux for some schooling may I reccommend www. solarenergyinternational (take out the space. They have online school and also sell a book Photovoltaics design and install guide. It’s the best money (currency) you will ever spend. It’s funny how a lot of jobs I get are fixing shit that master electricians fuck up because they don’t have a clue about DC power lol.

                That’s a bit harsh, Oldie. For all you know, a vector (carrier) you have no reason to suspect might just as easily carry ebola, killer flu or some other contagion into your “secure” redoubt. Not everyone has the luxury of a choice, but if history teaches us anything it’s that in many cases the survivors are those who persevere despite daunting odds, while many of the most prepared (they thought) are among the first to succumb.

                  @ Genius: Well, I was at work when you posted it and just got home a little while ago. As far as it goes, I would love to have a solar system at my house. I live in Florida, so it’s an ideal climate for such a system. I have decided against it at my current location though as I will not be staying here after I get my degree in a few years. My next home though will run off solar as well as a number of other sustainable technologies. I see it as part of my retirement plans, if the world doesn’t go to crap by then (which is looking less and less likely.)

                  Installing solar also looks like a promising growth industry. Unfortunately though, I do have health issues that preclude me doing physical labor for a living for much longer (I can work around the house, but have to take a lot of breaks). So, I am trying to finish an engineering degree I started long ago which should let me have a decent income without having to rely on physical labor for all of my paycheck. If that doesn’t pan out, I guess I’ll end up as an OTR truck driver. It’s good money and doesn’t require me to do heavy lifting all day long.

            • fishandmud says:

              @ Winston Smith : Alot of emphasis has been put on a bug out location. You don’t have to own a house or cabin to be king of the hill. Depending on the situation, most people will probably not make it to there bugout locations. Timing is everything. Unless you are retired, you just can’t leave, find out a month later that nothing happened, and go back to work like nothing happened. You will have a very small window of opportunity to get out, on wheels anyways.
              As far as owning a bug out location, go to wally world and buy a tent. No man is an island. Get together a group of at least three families. Everybody has to sleep sometime. First ones to the top of the mountain, or to your paticular location, owns it. The farther you go to BFE, the better. If you are lucky enough to leave at the right time, a 4×4 and plenty of fuel can get you a long way.

            I’ll buy that, but i ain’t buying the ebola scare.

            I don’t know which is worse; the fact that it is obvious that the folks i used to believe in (probably 60% of the regulars on this site), as “common sense preppers”, are now drinking the “obola kool-ade” lie, or the fact that our very own politicians are in on the hoax completely.

            Yes, it is a hoax. There may be a few cases in africa, and yes, sad to say, there may be some deaths; but to the degree the msm is portraying? no and hell no.

            Why isn’t the CDC been up front and “in front”, of this thing that has been going on for a year or more? Because they are in on the whole thing and know it is a hoax.

            Why would our very own elected officials cause such a hoax?
            Answer is very simple; to further their agenda 21 and pave the way for the smooth ride to the NWO assembly.

            Wake up folks, you are being con-jobbed.

            A faux vaccine for ebola, is now being produced in record numbers by the Canadian Pharma company; paid off by Monsanto, in the tune of billions; for which the USA gov holds the patent on.

            The so-called vaccine will be forced upon billions of unsuspecting peoples and cause more damage and deaths than if they had actually contracted the e virus.

            If two Americans can survive and thrive from the virus, within a matter of weeks, how friggin bad can it be,
            if it is even real. Evidently, the virus is not a death sentence, if a person is, and remains, healthy, by taking care of themselves.

            The scare tactics are working, people on this site are now acting as though the end is at their doorstep, and they have nowhere to run to, and nowhere to hide.
            What next? Lay down and let them stick a needle in your spine, filled with, God knows what? A genetic make-up change? A virus ten times worse than e?

            Sorry that it has come to this, and sorry that folks are so consumed with this ploy by TPTB. I have to laugh at the simple minded thinking, of folks, that think super-size trash bags and duct tape are gonna save them. if this obola thing were real, and it became epidemic in the USSAG (the United Socialist States of Abortion & Gaymorrah), there would be no friggin place safe; except for the hidden and sealed of bunkers within the earth.

            I will die with a bloody covered bible in my left hand and a blood covered 44 magnum in my right, before i live like a stinking mole.

            When things get weird, I always envision the scene from the John Wayne movie Chisum; where Billy the Kid (played by Geoffrey Deuel) is standing in the middle of a broad stream out in the Pecos Vally; in his right hand he is holding his 44 revolver and in his left, he is holding a Bible.

            I see myself as a warrior for Christ and truth. I try to rely on facts as best as i see them. I see my ancestors fighting for their freedoms, and this once great nation, this very way. Relying on the truths from their Creator and the technology of man, to fight for those things they believed in. There is no greater honor than dying with truth from God on the one hand and on the other, the tools of persuasion.
            Ya’ll think about it.

And worst yet…what about the disease that is spreading like wildfire in children? Surely the government can not blame all this on global warming or climate control?

        The protocol called for anyone who has contact / works with an Ebola patient to undress themselves when they’re finished…What a joke.

        The nurse was wearing a gown, gloves, and a shield (probably a plastic face mask like you can buy at Home Despot). Hardly a hazmat suit.

I hope she lives to hunt these bastards.

        • Dean GULberry says:

          ps: My wife heard (TV news, not the most credible source) the infected nurse and other hospital staff were “trained” by being told to research Ebola online and they would find everything they needed. Makes you feel all warm and fuzzy, eh? The CDC is on the job (but telecommuting).

        Scientist believes Ebola is NOT the disease the world should be worried about!

        He believes the real threat is a new zoonotic virus that will come out of an animal host and will most likely be respiratory — passed on by a sneeze or cough.

        “It will be probably a single-stranded RNA virus,” he said.

        And that means one of a certain limited number of families of viruses that, because they have their genomes on single stranded RNA, they have higher mutation rates, and therefore have higher rates of adaptation. Therefore, they have the potential to adapt better and quickly to human hosts and to transmission from one human host to another.”

        He said only a small number of groups or families of viruses fit those characteristics — the families that encompass the SARS and MERS viruses.

        The first time I heard about spread of Ebola to the US, I thought, “well… I guess Mother Nature is coming to the fore to combat Climate Change. This will reduce CO2 emissions on a grand scale and prevent run-away climate change…” (It will basically “save the planet”).

        But then I realized– no, this isn’t Mother Nature pulling the plug on millions of people; this is the method chosen by TPTB to deal with the issue of GW (and other issues as well!!)

        If you knew that the only way to save your loved ones– kids, wife, and relatives– was to pull the plug on the rest of humanity, would you do it? So I figure this is the plan the elites came up with– this is perhaps the reason for the research on Ebola- they probably already have a cure for it and its being reserved for the people at the top– otherwise, why haven’t they shut off all air travel from Africa? If they didn’t have medicine to cure it, they would be just as afraid/apprehensive as the rest of us!! They aren’t.

        Helot, you are incorrect. PCR is a test that used to be used but is now a cheap and fast test to rule viral infections OUT rather than aquire a definitive diagnosis. There are ebola specific antibodies that are tested for which indicates actual infection with the ebola virus. And just because we have a few cases of ebola in the US does NOT mean that it will trigger the “total collapse” of our health care system. UMmm… are we awake here? The health Care system of the US has been collapsed for quite a while now. We’re just finishing up treating all the medicaid patients and illegal immigrants before all the hospitals in the country close doors for good! Oh and wait until that Ebola vaccine goes up for sale!!! I’m all about safety and preparing, but I’m also trying to keep a level head about all of this. Being in the health care field I cannot just drop everything and BUG out. I have work, I have children… and if this does get bad we are going to need people with a set between their legs to stay behind and try to help our fellow man. Remember, none of us Americans asked for this. Bug out if you can/want. I hope you don’t get too lonely in your steel casket though.

      This article further supports my claims that if this thing really breaks into the wild in this country, hospitals and emergency services will be immediately overwhelmed. Medical staff will most likely abandon their posts…and I can’t blame them. There is such a dearth of real leadership that they do not know what to believe. I read somewhere that some 85% percent of medical staff across the country have had little to no training in dealing with a BSL-4 virus.

      So you will have possibly infected people with nowhere to go..except back home. Where they will infect their family members.

      • you are correct. I am an RN and I will NOT go to work if there is a single case of ebola anywhere near my area, let alone at the hospital where I work. I’m sure the nurse in Dallas was taking every possible precaution and still contracted the disease, as have hundreds of healthcare workers in Africa. I have taken care of countless patients with HIV & hepatitis C, knowing that I had the knowledge, skills, and equipment necessary to protect myself from contracting those deadly diseases. This is a very different situation and so I will not accept any blame for refusing to go to work. I place the blame squarely on Obama and his goons for refusing to secure our country by blocking all travel from Ebola hotbeds.

      Two things i want you to think about:

      1) The second ebola case was diagnosed by the Texas Department of Health, not the CDC. The CDC later gave a 2nd confirmation on this case. Why was the CDC not the primary source for confirmation?

      2) Where is the Duncan family? If they are Ebola free the government would be putting them on parade saying the Ebola quarantine works and all is well. Why is there a news blackout on this family?

      I suspect they are infected with ebola and the government is covering it up.

      • ziks says:

        It’s a start, but it’s not going to be great….

        To properly be protected you need positive pressure suits with respirators ($1200+/ea).

        Tyvek full body suits are cheap and better than rain suits, and “should” provide better than nothing skin protection. Go with n100 masks, n95 aren’t worth a shit, or better yet NBC gas masks with new filters, which again “should” provide protection. Duct tape the gloves, ankles, and neck areas to avoid any potential exposure.

        The most important part is how they are removed. It doesn’t matter how well you are protected if you infect yourself and others when removing the protective items.

        Only remove them after having set up a single decontamination shelter outside of living areas which is draft free, and is protected in plastic sheeting. You will want a kiddie pool with some bleach water, and spray bottles of bleach water. Have someone spray you down completely and let it sit. I’m not sure on the time off my head, but 30 minutes is the standard decontamination for drinking water at very low concentration. Spray the inside of this shelter well. Do this while standing in the pool to collect the runoff. ONLY THEN DO YOU REMOVE THE EQUIPMENT! Always wear a second pair of rubber gloves under your main pair of gloves. Do not take these gloves off until everything is removed, placed in a thick garbage bag, sealed, taped shut, and properly marked as a biohazard.

        YOU DO NOT REUSE ANY EQUIPMENT FOR ANY REASON THAT MAY HAVE HAD ANY CONTACT WITH ANY CONTAMINATION.

        I mean come on, this information is everywhere, yet the CDC expects a few n95 masks and a lab coat will protect these workers, and spreads that FUD to the public.

        Be safe, be prepared, be alert.

          I am not going to buy any protective suits. I do have rubber gloves and some N95 masks (although I think N100 is the minimum required).

          If the Ebola is bad enough that people are wearing hazmat suits around town, then it is time to SHELTER IN PLACE. I will not be going around crowds.

      • AZClimber says:

        Tony, as a whitewater enthusiast I would caution against the rain suits. Many materials that are used to keep you dry are also made put of breathable material such as gortex. This allows precipitation to escape and not build up under your suit. I believe this would completely compromise any protection that you would be hoping for. Sorry to dash your hopes.

      • The Old Coach says:

        There was that girl in Liberia(?) who got her whole family through Ebola using trash bags as an improvised hazmat suit. One of five died, four survived, and she didn’t catch it.

      • Odin's Ravens says:

        If an Ebola scenario takes off, forget about PPE. Your protection is a shotgun and 25 feet separation between anyone you think might be carrying the virus. Quarantine your family and yourself in your, home. Why the heck would you want to put on a hazmat suit and go walk around? No good can come of it.

      When an ER is full, then they can’t take on new patients. At that point they notify the ambulances and they go on “diversion”, and so this slams the other ERs in the area and results in heavier than normal census at those facilities.

      As the ER is often the first ones to assess and end up admitting someone to other areas of the medical center, then all of that affects the those departments as well. It’s a cascading problem.

      Because of fomites, then we could see lots of ER departments hammered and then contaminated, and then patients won’t have any other place to go.

      Because of managed care, and since ERs are traditionally big money losers, a lot of ERs have been shutdown or curtailed. It’s the most expensive way to treat an illness, and with gaps in coverage, then a traditional way of getting care was to give a false name, skip out on paying the bill, and exacerbated the problem all the more.

      In pandemic papers for Congress, there’s been the suggestion of making special outside tents to triage patients that might be infected so they don’t end up bringing fomites into the ER. Why is this NOT being done? It doesn’t have to be on a large scale. It doesn’t have to be complicated. If a patient knows they have been in an Ebola region, and might have been exposed, or is symptomatic, then wouldn’t it be much smarter to do that kind of triage outside the ER, then to shut a freaking whole ER down?

      This looks like a massive BLEEP. It’s almost as if the medical staff are clueless. Look they know they don’t have adequate protection. The American nurse got exactly 30 minutes of instruction on gowning up and decontaminating herself. Keep on making more and more mistakes and we WILL have a massive infection control issue soon.

      Seventy healthcare professionals were involved with one Ebola patient. That is nuts! Then multiply all of the innocent patients standing around for routine things who ALSO got potentially exposed.

      It’s a freaking comedy of errors.

      • The Old Coach says:

        This on top of the fact that all Texas hospitals are financially stressed by the waves of illegals they have to provide care for, by law, on their own dime. I spent a winter working in Fort Worth, and read of two hospitals simply going bankrupt in that time. And that was six years ago.

      My daughter lives with me and is a charge nurse at the ICU at our local Hospital. They had their first meeting on ebola today. They have only one ICU that could handle an Ebola patient. They lack protective equipment and do not yet had the training to use the proper procedures for using it. The hospital will be bringing in outside contractor to train them at some point. If this should breakout quickly most hospitals would not be ready to handle the situation.

      • Anon says:

        Based upon the scientific protocols we have for Ebola prior to this year’s nonsense, there are only four medical facilities who can handle an Ebola patient with Biosafety Level Four protection of the patient and staff and using the proper HEPA filtered air handling units, doing the proper sanitation, and taking every possible precaution while giving the patient the best supportive care. As there is no cure for Ebola (despite the possibility of using antibodies from the recovered Ebola patient in America and potentially a treatment with the genetically modified medicine which is still unproved and so pseudoscience. The only known treatment we have is to use special coagulants and supportive care and pray the patient’s own immune system will deal with Ebola as well as the depth of their infection isn’t too severe.

        In those four medical centers, there are a cumulative total of 19 beds equipped with the materials to keep them utterly isolated and to protect the medical staff.

        So if we’re being honest, only 19 patients can be treated and only if those four medical facilities can take them.

        Everything else is a lie, for prior to this debacle, no medical professional in America would EVER think we could treat Ebola at a standard metropolitan medical center. They simply are NOT equipped for it.

        Think of tuberculosis. There are drug resistant strains like MDR-TB. Patients with it must go to a special facility to be treated for it. A regular medical center doesn’t have the proper specialists, trained RNs, radiologists to read the depths of their infection, and the safety protocols for ensuring the patient is protected and the staff and other patients are protected. If we took any patient with MDR-TB to any medical center, we’d actually CREATE a massive contagion of personnel and innocent patients!

        The medical leadership is clueless. What they’re doing in hindsight, if it leads to more cases of Ebola, will be seen as a massive FUBAR situation in which the leadership’s decisions led to an even worse crisis.

        We don’t have the facilities to treat more than 19 Ebola patients. Because it was considered extremely improbable to happen in America, there wasn’t a push to have the beds to treat it. Which means the only option to avoid contagion is to carefully transport the infected to those four special facilities, or to NOT bring in Ebola infected into America for treatment at all, as the chance of infection is worse than curing the infected.

          I do believe that a bad outbreak will have a more devastating effect here than in third-world countries like the ones in West Africa. The economic impact will be far greater.

      • Walt Kowalski says:

        If any of you had seen the posts that we’ve had here the last few days…..a month ago…..you’d probably would have considered the people writing the posts to be bat-chit crazy.

        That is how quickly this situation has degraded. A month ago….Ebola was in the news…but only in a peripheral way. It was something that was “happening over there”. It couldn’t happen here. Our President said so, after all.

        I’d venture to say, that probably 50% of the population wasn’t even aware that the virus even existed….since the focus of most of them is on Dancing With The Stars, The Kartrashians and their favorite sports team.

        But now….we don’t even have a real outbreak here yet, and people are confused and on the verge of panic in some areas. This is how quickly it is turning bad. Wait until people start turning up with this and they have no earthly idea as to HOW they got it…..because there have been people exposed that they never thought would be exposed…because their protocols for dealing with this have been totally wrong.

        Look….with the current policies for people entering the country from West Africa, Thomas Eric Duncan could STILL get into this country today. He had no fever when he arrived here on September 19th, and he lied as to his exposure. NOTHING is preventing that from happening with someone else RIGHT NOW. Because the policies are essentially unchanged.

        How many more Thomas Eric Duncan’s are their out there right now? How many will cross our southern border?

        Once these people start hitting the hospitals and urgent care facilities, they will close down quickly. Most of them simply are not equipped to deal with this. And to make matters worse, we are entering seasonal flu season. So….you’ll have people coming into emergency rooms with simple seasonal flu…but they’ll have to be handled in the same way that a potential Ebola patient is handled.

        Can you say gigantic mess?

        There is but one source of blame for this, and it is the people making the decisions in Washington D.C. They should have restricted all travel from West Africa 2 months ago. They didn’t have to stop it completely, but they should have put policies in place to quarantine people coming into this country from that part of the world. They COULD have done it. They SHOULD have done it. And their failure to do so may very well precipitate the SHTF situation that we have all been preparing for for so long.

        Hopefully…..this won’t happen. Hopefully this will be contained. But it will be a real miracle if it is. Because there have been simply too many screw ups for us to be lucky here.

        • Old Libertarian says:

          WK,

          I’m currently in UK and it’s no different here. Even up until yesterday, people I spoke with about obola and being careful ridiculed me.

          The difference? In the US the first few cases have been officially “announced” and in the news, here that has not yet happened. . .

          Although I do suspect that there are probably some obola cases already walking about in our midst. My son has been instructed accordingly, but my dilemma is how to get me and mine off this island before things go tits up (as they say in the vernacular around here).

      Here’s a short piece of fiction I wrote several years ago, that blends in

      ..albeit, the numbers per fatalities, in retrospect, are off somewhat!

      ***FORWARD***

      In light of the long dead congressional joint
      sub-committee on intelligence, conducting their
      sham inquisition against the FBI / CIA for failure to
      prevent the 9-11 fiasco, it is safe to conclude that
      nothing will ever come of it and thus, the United States of America will
      be false-flagged again…The following article is hypothetical, at this
      point in time at least, yet the possibility exists that it may one day
      be viewed
      as…………………something akin to prophecy.

      It goes without saying, that multi-culturalism, is
      destroying the country, it is our Achilles heel. The
      scenario outlined below, posits a strategy….albeit a
      simple one, where our open borders policy is exploited
      in order to KILL millions of Americans.

      The “stalking-horse” used for this industrial scale
      exercise in murder is….the Mexican (illegal alien).
      Read carefully and ask yourself this; …”Are you willing
      to bet your life and the lives of your loved ones,
      upon current U.S. govt. immigration policy?”

      -Hunter-

      –MODUS OPERANDI–

      Let us assume, some well financed middle-east
      terrorist organization (Al-Qeadah comes to mind), were
      to select 30 operatives based on the following
      criteria…….

      1.) ..An all abiding hatred for the United States, the
      great Satan in the Moslem world, whom they consider
      the Israeli sugar daddy and thus shares responsibility
      for the deaths of millions of Arab men, women and
      children to date.

      2.) ..Close physical resemblance to Mexicans. Possessing
      straight / wavy black hair, dark eyes, light to medium
      complexion and build, no heavy beards or 5 o’clock
      shadows. This is of paramount importance, as it will
      provide excellent cover….(think racial profiling)….and
      allow the terrorists to operate under the radar screen
      of U.S. law enforcement once inside the country.

      3.) ..College educated, above average intelligence and
      an innate ability to think “out of the box.’

      (Note:…..the middle-east abounds with over-educated /
      under-employed / zealous young men who fit the above
      guidelines).

      ———————————————————————————————–

      Next, give them a 12 to 18 month crash course in
      Spanish, with an emphasis on Mexican regional
      dialects, accents and customs, plus pop-culture
      English, escape and evasion techniques, U.S. map
      reading (especially city maps), and basic terrorist
      cell communications (conducted in Spanish).

      Upon completion of training, smuggle them into Mexico via a
      container ship (COSCO shipping Ltd comes to mind).
      After docking at the Mexican pacific port of Mazatlan, split them up
      into 2 man teams and transport them to safe houses
      close to the U.S / Mexican border, where they are
      provided with U.S. currency, maps, bus routes, a
      personal side-arm, targeting information and of
      course, a final intelligence briefing.

      Meanwhile, supporting pre-strike preparations in
      the U.S., sleeper agents will have reconned the target
      areas, in this case, tall cell phone and microwave
      communication towers located in / around the targeted
      cities. Next, infiltrate the teams across the border………

      …(look at it this way, if illiterate peasants can do it
      on a daily basis, how difficult would it be for
      trained professionals? Or, one can always bribe
      corrupt Mexican officials, such as their military and
      police.)…methinks, the drug cartels would gladly lend help.

          Now fear this! Forget anthrax! Assume each team
          carries 1-2 lbs. of smallpox virus, bio-engineered to
          be more contagious and lethal. Naturally, the base
          sample was purchased from an underpaid technician,
          stationed at the Russian bio-weapons research lab and
          production facility outside Sverdlovsk, Russia….the
          technology to culture / produce smallpox is not that
          sophisticated. There are thousands of unemployed /
          underemployed Russian / Arab bio-engineers quite
          capable of producing it (the trick is not allowing it
          to escape until you’re ready to use it).

          No explosive is needed to aerosol the virus into
          the atmosphere. The terrorists will use a metal
          cylinder, the size of a small thermos bottle, charged
          with 200psi of nitrogen and a timer actuated dc
          solenoid to vent the nitrogen in a sudden burst. The
          device is commonly called an accumulator.

          The smallpox virus is powdered / crystallized and
          treated in a process similar to what is done to the
          dry media inside common fire extinguishers. It is
          contained inside a sealed, flexible, thin walled,
          opaque plastic bladder having a vulcanized hard
          plastic fitting, threaded on its inside diameter to
          allow for attachment onto the accumulator exhaust
          nipple.

          The targets are 15 large American cities, they are…
          ….Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Detroit,
          Spokane, Los Angeles, Miami, New York City,
          Philadelphia, San Diego, San Francisco, St. Louis and
          Washington D.C. The attack is scheduled for May 5th
          (Cinco de Mayo, Mexican independence day).

          Each team consists of the driver / lookout and the
          climber. The towers are selected based on traffic
          access, poor nighttime lighting and most importantly,
          prevailing local wind patterns over the targeted
          cities. In preparation, each team will have purchased
          a pair of walkie-talkie type radios,
          complete with remote headsets and chin mikes. The
          attack commences at 3:00 a.m., when human reactions
          and attentiveness are at their lowest point and most
          graveyard shift cops are in the all-night doughnut
          shops.

          • Hunter says:

            **-(page #3)-**

            The drivers approach their targets, pull over and
            stop, the dome lights have been removed…no light to
            attract attention…the climbers exit and retrieve
            their weapons from the trunk, they’re inside small
            book-bag type backpacks. They turn on their radios,
            grab their wire cutters and head for the dog lot type
            fences surrounding the towers. The drivers leave
            immediately, no more than 30 seconds have elapsed at
            this point. Once through the fences, the climbers
            begin scaling the towers in the dark. Thirty feet from
            the top they stop, clamping their climbing harness
            carabiners onto a tower strut, they extract the weapon
            assemblies and a roll of duct tape from the backpacks.

            The accumulators are threaded into the bladder
            fittings and the weapons are secured to the towers’
            framework via the tape. The timers are powered up and
            set to discharge at 6:45 a.m. (local time). The
            terrorists descend and radio their drivers. Pick-up
            occurs in 5-10 min. The cars are driven to a nearby
            town and ditched one block from the bus station.
            One-way bus tickets to El Paso, Texas, are purchased. The
            escape is a clean one. It is now 5:00 a.m.

            At 6:45 a.m. the timers close their relay contacts,
            energizing the solenoids, a 200psi blast of nitrogen
            gas discharges violently into the virus filled
            bladders, they rupture amid a 5 mph early morning
            breeze. The nightmare has begun! Below, unsuspecting
            commuters east and southeast of the towers are just
            beginning to deal with the hated early a.m. traffic
            congestion common to the large American metropolis. By
            10:00am, over eleven million people have inhaled or
            ingested the virus. It is highly contagious.

            Dispersed by the wind, the virus drifts onto the
            door knobs of houses, businesses, churches
            and day care centers, the door handles of cars,
            trucks, mail boxes, hospitals as well as school
            playground equipment. In short, everything the virus
            contacts, becomes “biologically hot”. Fed-ex and UPS
            panel vans, with side doors and / or windows open,
            deliver the epidemic to homes and factories. Ditto for
            the U.S. postal service. Outgoing packages and mail
            become contaminated when placed in the now “hot”
            delivery vehicles for shipment to other parts of the
            nation where the process is repeated. Infected airline
            travelers, truckers and tourists transport the deadly
            disease to smaller cities and towns and most
            horrifically, their homes. Many of those whom the
            government was counting on to help contain such a
            catastrophe were themselves infected, they included
            critical FEMA, CDC, DHS and Military personal.

            Symptoms begin to manifest themselves in 5-6 days.
            On May 11th, at 2:10 p.m.(eastern standard time)… 6
            days after the attack… syndicated(1000’s of stations
            nationwide) talk radio hosts Rush Limbaugh and others informs the
            American people that a smallpox epidemic has exploded
            on the scene at numerous locations across the country.
            The hosts and their listening audience suspect
            bio-terrorism. The public’s concern rapidly mutates
            into panic. The Feds, on the other hand, have no
            doubts. They know! Two hours later the government
            declares martial law, the Constitution / Bill of
            Rights are suspended….but the effect is too little,
            too late…..Caught off guard, the Feds soon realize that
            the logistics required too contain the epidemic (and
            vaccinate / quarantine the population) are impossible to meet.
            Therefore, the govt. institutes a triage doctrine…save
            Washington and New York! The rest are left to go it
            alone.

            • Hunter says:

              **-(page #4)-**

              Martial law ultimately fails as over half the
              Federal law enforcement officers, the national
              guardsmen / reservists, the state / city / county
              police, refuse to report for duty, instead they stay
              home, protecting family. As civilization starts to
              unravel, the Chittum scenario, as outlined in the book
              Civil War-2, slams headlong into American society…

              The American health care system collapsed rapidly,
              as it was the doctors, nurses and staff who bore the
              brunt of the disease and by extension were among its
              initial casualties. The economy crashes inside 4
              weeks. Six weeks after the attack, famine ravages the
              population, as little food is harvested……….and
              even less delivered. Perhaps the ultimate irony will
              be the fact that the plague eventually sweeps into
              Mexico…as infected mestizos flee back across the still
              open border…

              ***POST MORTUM***

              In the end, final blame will be attributed to those
              responsible for foisting multi-culturalism….our de
              facto state religion….upon America and those who held
              sway over U.S. immigration policy….the Democrat and
              Republican parties…and the elitists that control / own them both!

              The tomb of the American Republic
              will be dated 1776- to -the early 21st century. Its
              antiphon will be inscribed in Spanish. Translated,
              it’ll read; “IDIOTS, you should have closed the
              border!”

              –FINAL THOUGHTS-

              –( Note: To our politicians, immigration activists /
              lawyers and liberal scum)–

              …Listen up guys! You know and I know that
              the above scenario is as plausible as it is
              frightening. Smallpox was chosen as the example
              weapon…primarily because the terrorists would have
              been vaccinated while in training camp. But on the
              other hand, countless Moslem zealots are available for
              suicide missions. They’ll even volunteer…after all…..
              …they have the best whore-house in heaven… 72 virgins per
              martyr (so they claim)!

              With that in mind, the terrorists
              could just as easily use weaponized Marburg virus,
              Bubonic plague or worse, Ebola Zaire! The first two
              will give them a 50%-60% kill ratio. Ebola Zaire on
              the other hand, will guarantee almost 90%+. There is no
              defense or vaccination that is effective against these
              three pathogens.

              I wonder how you fools can sleep at night, knowing
              that if this ever occurs, the survivors are going to
              want a piece of your ass!

              • Winston Smith says:

                Or, they could get some just by walking to the abandoned bio-weapons facility on Vozrozhdeniya Island, in the middle of what used to be the Aral Sea in Kazakhstan. The place has been looted for twenty years now and who knows what happened to all those lovely pathogens.

                • Hunter says:

                  Winston–

                  Funny you should mention the (former) Aral Sea..rumor has it, its nothing more than a near mud-puddle nowadays.

                  ..the result of ‘good old collectivist’ geo-engineering!

                Nice story Hunter. I’ve been wondering what some scenario’s for a bio weapon attack might look like. This looks pretty plausible.

                The one that I envisioned was Ebola infected jihadi’s showing up at college and professional baseball, football and other pro sports venue’s. It would be pretty difficult to time it correctly so that the infected would be highly contagious, yet not debilitated enough to go about their work. Your scenario is much easier to implement.

            Good and Bad news here: Thanksgiving was great, lots of turkey and pumpkin pie….even had 8 wild turkeys in my backyard and that is the 3rd time I saw them in the past 2 wks…..unfortunately, as soon as I open the door, they scurry into the forest! ):

            Bad news…Belleville Ontario, not far from my location, has admitted their 1st ‘SUSPECTED’ case of ebola to the regional hospital!

            This man is military from our local Trenton Air Base, and just returned from Sierra Leone showing symptons…..we should hear later today if it is ebola or NOT! This is way to close to me, so I cancelled my doctor appt for tomorrow, just to be on the safe side.

            So scary as I live in a tiny village in the middle of NOWHERE?? Just goes to show how safe(NOT) we are no matter where we live…(Unless we live in the Tiekel River area) Will not go into lockdown till I hear later today on that patient in Belleville) Take care all, CC

                  Astute observation old Friend, ’tis been ‘long enough’, has it not? Things being what ‘they are’ of late, I chose to return out of concern for those here who I am yet concerned FOR; several to say the least! Be well, I am here again, now…and till the End. Therefor, if your mind so inclines, be ready Brother, for ‘when the call comes’ you will not have much time to ACT. All must be ready for the journey that brings you here, to US….for I have decided that – at the End, IF that COMES – I will make THAT plain to those that He has prepared – via the “indwelling Spirit”. Time will then be ‘precious’ in the extreme, needless to say.

                  Good morning to you Sir, I figured I would leave this post here rather than in a newer article seeing as only a few would be checking this far back in the threads.

                  I’m having trouble keeping up with the articles recently due to family obligations, work, prep, etc. But I do try and get back regularly. As this site can be and is a great source of info.

                Be well, be VERY safe! ‘Dilgent’ in all till the truth is at hand Sweety. Hon, I have made – something – of a ‘monumental’ decision lately. Pleae consult the posting that I have left above for ‘Ghost Rider’, mch will be made plain thereby. As time has passed, my inclination – at the fundament – has changed, and is perhaps best desscribed as, “For what profiteth it a Man to GAIN the whoie World…and yet lose his own SOUL?” I cannot turn my back on those I know to be ‘kindred Spirits’, the doing of that would Damn me in my own eyes forever. Be not fearful though, fo rthat will come only as – and AT – the last…hence my strong injunction – above to GR. As said ‘Only at the last…’ thus then, TIME will be ‘critical’. However, and should the Spirit intercede then THOSE will come…safely, HERE.

                Be so very careful Sweety…PLEASE!, till we know. Sleep will be elusive for me now….until then.

      Folks it is just a matter of time before Ebola or a mutated version of it is in your back yard. People are jumping on planes to get away from Ebola and some are already sick. If Dallas gets stamped out, then another hot spot will crop up. Our system is not prepared, and none of our neighboring country’s are either. Hide and watch it will get worse….

      • kynase says:

        I agree. My gut tells me that ebola will keep popping up like little brush fires. At first it will seem like we are putting them out, but eventually the fire will break through the line.

        so that people don’t freak out…aside from fire bombing the hell out of a place, I’m pretty sure that quarantine is the best way to beat this bad boy. Let it runs its course and prevent any others from being exposed. Don’t be surprised when you hear neighborhoods, buildings or cities going into quarantine. That will, of course, be my cue to seal up tight with my family and ride this thing out..

        • Texas Tea says:

          @KYNASE- Your post is right on the money and exactly what I think will happen. Rumor has it today that the nurses boyfriend has Ebola symptoms-He works outside of the Dallas area. I live in the North Austin area- we all know that travel between our cities is a common-It’s out-It’s spreading and we can’t stop it. The CDC and health care system is already being taxed ( reports that the ER in Dallas has been shut-down)and it’s evident they really don’t know what they are doing. This is not a game. When you said it will flare up here and there and then be out of control is spot on! I am heading over to my local survival store today after work and picking up more supplies. I am preparing for home isolation and/or bugging out to property. Right now, everyone should be prepping while they still can. There will come a day in the near future where this will be impossible. I could care less what some people think. God bless y’all

    34. Derrick says:

      It’s too late to stop the virus.
      Too many in Dallas have been exposed.

      It’s PANDEMIC time boys and girls.

      Better stock up now on lots of food, water and colloidal silver.

      Prepare to evacuate if you live in a large city.

      Or you can just relax and trust your incompetent government and wait till it’s too late to prepare.

    35. ted dura says:

      this absolutely proves to me the medical community knows absolutely nothing about ebola-first is they should not be treating people in hospitals that can becom contaminated–they need a structure they can eventually burn down–one fucking patient anf their overloaded what will they do when the numbers are 1-5 million or maybe 50 million.that is a real possibility–they need to put the entire country on lockdown if we reach a few thousand–no sports no transportation, buses, trains, airplanes- close all restaurants, theaters, schools libraries, super markets- everyone on lockdown for at least 6-12 months.
      if this is not done 60-70 percent of the polulation will die–no there is no cure and not likely there will be one.

      • T-town says:

        you put the country in lock down and 60-70% of population will die from starvation, not to mention diseases caused by unsanitary conditions. who is going to pick up the garbage? Who is going to care for the elderly, the disabled and anyone who might get sick, not Ebola but just sickness that happens all the time. No lock down , officially anyhow, will ever occur.

      The biggest danger of this virus is panic! Proper planning prevents piss poor performance. Store water, food, mask, bleach with spray bottles, surgical gloves, personal protection.

      SHELTER IN PLACE.

      The economy is programmed to come crashing down anyways just like the twin towers and the pentagon to cover the tracks of the evil globalist banksters.

      This PLANNED and ALLOWED outbreak is just ‘what the doctor ordered’ to create chaos and disruption leading to medical martial law. If you don’t already have your preps in place, you may be too late.

      Hear that giant ‘whoosh’ and sucking sound? That’s the United States of America swirling down the drain. It is all be design. There is a very large and horrific event about to unfold that will make 9/11 look like a drill.

      this amazes me for Ebola should be handled in the same way as if it was a nuclear power plant accident with hazmat suits and all. But then again we look at Fukishima and that explains a lot. The current lot of clowns in charge have no clue what they are doing.

    45. Frank Thoughts says:

      In these events, it is the knock-on impact that acts as a multiplier, making the original problem much worse. People panic, act without proper knowledge, cut corners, cover asses, systems quickly break down as normal routines are disrupted. Just look at Toronto during the SARS epidemic. Once it started killing healthcare workers, the system froze up.

      The UK’s health minister yesterday looked as if he had dropped a load in his y-fronts.

      If this thing is transmutable by air, then it is a different game. It means all the current protocols are wrong. Judging from the large number of healthcare workers dying, it seems the protocols are not enough.

      Simple, once again we allowed PEOPLE who have NO OTHER motivation in Life than to live as parasites off the WEALTH that others CREATE to gain CONTROL of both the Financial and Stock markets. Yep, WE SCREWED UP AGAIN!…GEE it’s GETTING monotonous, ain’t it? Now, let’s just accept that FACT and move on here.

      Seriously here Folks…WHEN are you ever going to LEARN? Those PEOPLE have no other motivation in Life than to “TAKE WHAT YOU MAKE”. To that end they will continue to construct ‘opaque instruments’ that SOUND, when described, as if they are the next, best thing since the invention of ‘sliced BREAD’, but which are – In Fact – thier only means of GETTING in YOUR pockets. Kramer, Najarian…and all the rest have no other motivation in this World that to SELL you ‘SHIT’…that is going to bankrupt you!…AND ENRICH THEM.

      IF your MONEY…the ‘token’ of your WORK, were under your MATTRESS at home, then HOW would those EVER get thier mits on it?!?!?! Answer: They wouldn’t!

      Therefor, the entirety of the ‘game afoot’ is focused on getting YOUR MONEY out ‘in the open’…where THEY can get thier greedy little paws on it. To THAT End they will SAY or DO absolutely anythting, AT ALL; thier very LIVES Depend on THAT. DOH!!! didn’t see that one coming? Live and learn People….

      I have NO DOUBT that “Kramer” would sell his MOTHER, DAUGHTERS, SISTERS…and NIECES into slavery in a Morrocan brothel if it would JUST GET HIM ACCESS TO YOUR MONEY…as would ANY of the rest of the ‘talking heads’, that tell us how ‘good things are’… DAILY, since they are utterly incapapble of actually CREATING ANYTHING OF REAL VALUE in this – fookin’ – World.

      Everyone here – with SOME exceptions I’ll admit – daily, CREATES more real ‘value’ than any of those ever have in thier entire lives. So, “what’s the ANSWER here”, simple, BREAK the MARKET….forever!…take your money OUT, else they WILL steal ir, one way or another as THEY now control all the regulatory agancy’s lock, stock and BARREL and will therefor be able to get at your PRODUCTVITY anywhere on this planet other than UNDER YOUR fookin’ MATTRESS! The RULE of LAW is GONE – at this point, clearly – Folks, think ‘MF Global’ here…on a GLOBAL scale…get it NOW?

      LET IT HAPPEN!…and when they are GONE, then we can rebuild ‘this all’ as something that is closely REGULATED…something that WORKS for everyone, EVERYWHERE…where the RULE of LAW is paramount and the market is not simply a ‘free giveaway’ for those who cannot CREATE anything and who are utterly determined to be PREDATORS on your aspirations and everything that YOU have ‘created’ as a function of your Life, on this PLANET.

      It may BE that the very concept of ‘Money’ itself needs to be re-thought in future times: That remains to be seen. However, on a another RELATED note, I would STRONLY recommed that in the future, that everyone HOLDING PUBLIC OFFICE – above the level of DOG CATCHER – as well every beaurocrat in PUBLIC SERVICE of significant rank – be fitted with EXPLOSIVE COLLARS upon swearing the oath, and taking office…those collars being tied to a ‘voting system’ of sorts wherein the constituency of each such are randomly allowed to VOTE – electronically! – on whether those installed in office are “WORTHY” to continue ‘occupying’ said office…with the obvious consequences!

      It is NOT for them to RULE us…WE RULE THEM DAMMIT, and that is the core of our problems of late, for as everyone KNOWS, “Power couupts…and ABSOLUTE POWER corrupts ABSOLUTELY.” Now, see how simple that all is? Failing THAT then let it all BURN down, completely…the WHOLE THING!!!…we WILL rebuild it!…. after they are gone…build it again, BETTER, FASTER, STRONGER.

      I REALLY can’t WAIT to see what today brings. Bear in mind that they are scrambling – behind the scenes – to cover thier ASSES right now, and so we might well see the markets seem to ‘ease up’ for a day, but I think not much more; the weight of the ‘overhead’ in the sytem – now – is simply far too VAST for much of anything else to occur. So, WATCH the Kapanese stock markets closely…they HOLD over 1 Trillion of USD paper and that will come OUT soon as they get further monkey-hammered…the END will come from there quite likely.

      What is occuring here, and now is as pre-determined, ‘foreordained’, you might say, as the cause and effect associated with jumping off of a cliff; a Long DROP…followed immediately by a SUDDEN STOP. In truth, that is as simple as it – here – gets.

      “HAVE GGOD DAY PEOPLE…it’s all just money after all, and inasmuch as they have DEBASED that into oblivion – with QE-XX – what, exactly, is the difference? You STILL have all that you had before…and if they try to come and TAKE that?….well, you KNOW what to do, don’t you? Then just DO it TO IT.

    48. Old Guy says:

      Ok Im still inclined to not worry much about ebola. Im white if I was black I would be scared shitless. This strikes me as odd. Two white people have ebola and recover. the black dood in dallas dies. Is there a documented case of a white person who got medical help and died? I can see why folks would want to rid the African continent of black folks. For the very exact same reason we tried to exterminate the native americans back in the 1800,s. we gave the natives blankets contaminated with small pox. Folks don’t get a flu shot or anything the government recommends. DTA don’t trust anyone.

      • swinging richard says:

        The 2 whites were honest and told the truth about their infections an sought treatment from the best possible sources. The black gentleman lied about his exposure, tried to seek treatment from a hospital that had no experience dealing with ebola, was careless in his concern for others and infected at least one other person. See the health care worker in Europe that died if you want to see a white death. It is not about race, its about the experience of the health care system.

        • Old Guy says:

          Well even if there was a white health care worker in Europe who died. that would still be considered collateral damage. the small pox the native americans where purposely infected with killed whites & other races too. however we know in fact it happened. and it worked because the small pox had a very high deat percentage on injuns. Its possible this ebola wil have a much higher death rate for blacks. If you can kill off 90% blacks and 10% of everyone else you will have made great strides in reducing the world population as the geogia guidestones recommend. This ebola thing is being done on purpose. the opening of the southern borfer was on purpose. the importation and whole sale distribution of central American children was on purpose. Our USA producing jobs where redistrubeted to other places on purpose. the glowbull warming scam lie myth was perpetuated on purpose. the fiat money petro dollar was created on purpose. Obama was put in place as president on purpose. Its all being done on purpose as part of the UN- NWO and agenda 21 plan. and so far its been working very well for them.

      Ebola: Studies Dispute CDC Mantra

      http://thenewsdoctors.com/ebola-stud…te-cdc-mantra/

      “Direct contact with bodily fluids can include airborne droplets that are expelled from the infected host via a sneeze or a cough. A plain language account of how viruses can propagate and persist includes the following:

      “The smaller and lighter particles (those that are five microns or less across) are less affected by gravity and can stay airborne almost indefinitely as they are caught up in and dispersed by the room’s airflow.”

      For comparison, an Ebola virus particle has a width of 80 nanometers – 62.5 times smaller than 5 microns, the typical diameter of a human red blood cell. Ebola virus is tiny. Even once a particle settles to the floor, don’t expect it to stay there – it can easily become airborne once again, as the cited article goes on to explain:

      “Opening a door can dramatically alter the airflow in the room and pull up viruses on the floor. Even walking through a room can spread droplets in a person’s wake.”

      “If a person is sick, the droplets in a single cough may contain as many as two hundred million individual virus particles.”

      “Once airborne, viruses in these tiny droplets can survive for hours. Even if the droplets hit a surface, the viruses can survive and still spread disease if the droplets become airborne later. When a droplet lands on paper, its virus particles can survive for hours. On steel or plastic they can survive for days.”

    56. dontbeanidiot says:

      Smart hospital managers will simply declare their hospital cannot treat Ebola. Think of the tens of millions the Dallas hospital is losing by having to shut down. Next the mercedes dealership and $100 steak houses will suffer the trickle down.
      Place a person at the door to the emergency room. Anyone come in with flu like symptoms gets tested and possibly turned.

      Up at Business insider now, an article originating at Reuter’s

      “Americans Face Post-Foreclosure Hell As Wages Garnished And Assets Seized”

      “Danell Huthsing” might become a houehold name soon. In 2008 he was a bankteller in Florida. She co-sgned a bank loan with her boyfriend for a house they shared in Jacksonville. When she moved out her name was still on the note… And after her boyfriend defaulted on the loan her name WAS on the foreclosure papers as well….

      After that, she moved to st Louis and began life again…till she was served with a notice that she OWED $91,000 on that home…from EIGHT years before. Think the seven year limit applies here? Not quite.

      The tactic now being used by – some – banks is called a “deficiency judgment” and it wasn’t always the case that a bank would elect to pursue that with a homeowner due to bad publicity, legal costs and other factors.
      NOW, with 1 trillion in bad loans outstanding, things, ‘they are a changin’

      The BANKERS will have your ASS if they wish it…when will we stop this? It IS your choice, if not then they WILL own you – all – before this is over. Either go ‘Iceland’ on them – all of THEM – and repudiate the DEBT – ALL of it…or watch your grandchildren live in squalor for the rest of thier natural LIVES. Agaim here, the CHOICE is yours…”WE the PEOPLE…”, nuff said.

      • Old Guy says:

        well she signed that prommosory note. she made the deal. its only right that she be held accountable. I think its great that her debt she co signed for caught up with her. Used to be that a person could file bankruptcy and use the legal system to beat a honest debt. The changes in bankruptcy laws to allow deficiency judgments changed that. Deadbeats can no longer rack up debt and take bankruptcy and leave the lender holding the bag.

        • Frank Thoughts says:

          I agree: screw her. We live in a credit and debt system – everyone learns that from school at a young age. If you can’t control yourself, and rack up too much debt and then try and run from it, well, you made your bed. I once knew a couple who did this in the 90s: maxed out about ten credit cards and then fled the country. F#ckers got away with it as far as I know.

          Best thing Bush ever did was take away the ability to run from debt. Oh, and letting Lehman go down: that was the right thing to do and he should have let the scum-banks go down too. We would have cleaned the slate and the economy would be growing properly by now.

          Howdy All,

          As there were MULTIP{LE reponses here, I’ll get everyone in one ‘fell swoop’ – as it were – by answering here.

          OG…yes, in the natural order of things, EVERYTHING you say is true, however, witness that all that you and I were taught aa we grew, was little more than ‘sheep herding’ on the level of Edward Bernaise. Why is that so…because at NO time were those at the TOP ever taught anysuch thing, EVER. Now then, in the last several years since the onet of the ‘crunch’ WHAT have those at the top done to US? they have made sure that 59,000 indepedent American busineses closed their doors here, as well, today, there are 96,000,000 working age Americans out of work. Does THAT for a moment aound as if the ‘playing field’ is LEVEL. No, obviously not.

          Were that not the case, then things might otherwise be different indeed…but they are not. Gentleman, the playing feild is now so profoundly stacked against every ordinary person in this country that what I posted above is but a HARBINGER of what is to come…for everyone yet tied to THAT system. Therein lies the warning that I tried to here convey to you…not that people should ‘welch’ on thier due obligations, hardly.

          Dwell on that Friends, deeply, I pray you. From where I am now, there is simply NO harm that may assault me OR mine, on ANY level that can be conceived…I have made it SO, but yet I FEAR for ALL thoae left behind… including you. Try to learn to SEE all sides of ‘what is’, step outside of the box of ordinary thought, else later terror will take you surely.

          Frank, you say..and rightly so that, ” We live in a credit and debt system – everyone learns that from school at a young age. If you can’t control yourself, and rack up too much debt and then try and run from it, well, you made your bed.”, Yes? However, those at the TOP no longer – or actally have EVER – abided by any such ‘quaint notion’ as the rest of us honor or cherish Pointin fact, those have been ABSOLVED of all regulation and indeed LAW in recennt years. They are all but becoem ‘Gods amongst mere men. How so then are we to be HELD to a standeard and they NOT? Food for thought.

          Navy, Yes Sir!…I DO lknow that, though often I cross over ‘enemy lines’ just to see what they are up to… Recon, eh?

          Hope that clarifies things adeqately. Suprisisngly enough Gentelman, the opinion’s of those HERE have MEANING to me..the opniions those whom I call my peers. So it is.

          Adios Friends….till later.

      Lots of people going to freak out over this Ebola if more hospitals shut down. Imagine Ebola being like the Flu in a confined space with lots of people. Worse yet is trying to explain to a small child to cover a sneeze or cough. Vomiting uncontrollable.
      To all those Nurses and Aides that are in First Direct Contact. I would not fault you if you leave. You are good people. Positive thinkers, full of life. Direct opposite what most preppers think. Many of whom are hard shelled because this is what prepping can do to a person.
      I Know, I am one of them. Reading the news on Ebola we will soon lose our belief in the system and be on our own.

      I feel very strongly about this. We must raise our voices collectively NOW. I am prepped for just about everything but this shit.

      My aunt is a nurse in a prominent Pittsburgh hospital. I asked her if they have gotten any instruction yet on dealing with Ebola and she said not yet but she was “concerned”. wtf!

      When I saw my doctor two weeks ago I asked her if the shtf would she stay and continue to doctor or if she would consider leaving. Her honest answer was that she didn’t know but would probably stay because that is who she is.

      My opinion…the CDC and the government cover-up about the real nature of Ebola is all about keeping the economy propped up. They could give a shit if we die…just keep up appearances til they financially bleed us dry….just like Ebola will.

      Good Morning Everyone,

      Through the night we had some interesting seismic activity. To begin here, we saw a 7.3 occur in Nicaragua..that si getting to be rather LARGE for ‘ordinary’ activity. That has been followed by the expected aftershocks, which are STILL occuring. As well, we saw a string of new activity along the south-Western edge of the Pacific plate, roughly along the edge that abutts New Zealnd. Now, we are all aware that the activity at Bardabunga has been nearly continous for weeks now, thus we know that PRESSURE is increasing along the edges of all the plates abutting that, Yes?

      Well, what we also saw last night was a tremor in a VERY unique location…one in which we SELDOM see any such ever occur; at a point in the Arctic Ocean, north of Toktoyaktuk, Canada we recorded a teeny-weeny lil 3.5 tremor. Now that is almost too small to care about, yes? Not quite…along with the activity in Central America. as well that along the coast of New Zealand…and the 6+ activity in Japan I have a strong suspicion that within a matter of days we will see something in either China or along the Western Pacific seaboard of North America that may be – rather – ‘out of the ordinary’. WATCH the Juan de Fuca Folks.

      Also, per gophers info yesterday, I can assert that – as yet – there is no signifivant probability that the NM is getting to be a point of ‘concern’…just sayin here.

      The nurses are catching Ebola because it is airborne and under CDC guidelines she was only provided a mask, not a respirator (Techs argue over exactly what “airborne” means, I am using the lay definition) by politically correct foolishness.

      CIDRAP (Minnesota) has been forced to assume the leadership in fighting ebola as the Obama CDC have become politically correct hacks denying basic science.

      Obama Politicos write the press releases. Check out CIDRAP (other medical specialists are coming forward this week) for the tech details, suffice it to say transmission will expand geometrically, and the incubation period is 21 days max.

      The Obama Government will continue to mishandle this, you are on your own. 3 thing to do to protect your family now:

      1. Get Dr. Grattan Woodsons free pamphlet on the internet on common sense preps for the Bird Flu using off the shelf medicines and rehydration solutions.Its free its simple and its vetted. “Influenza” by John Barry also provides accurate background of techniques from the 1918 Flu epidemic.

      2. Get the off the shelf items Dr. Woodson suggests. You can do this for under $100 and Walmart has everything.

      3 Be sure you and your kids are on the same side of any likely quarantine zone when you are at work, if not keep one parent in their zone.

      Usually a city will be quarantined by sealing off the interstate beltways, then house to house, and either in place quarantine (at the beginning) or forced Fema camp relocation.

      You will want to avoid a Fema camp if possible.

      Current CDC numbers are as follows 8400 infected and 4033 dead. Please understand that these numbers are estimated to only be 25% to 50% of the actual numbers of Ebola infections and deaths. A little simple math says the actual numbers a proably closer to 8066 to 16,132 dead and 16,800 to 33,600 infected. Just trying to keep it real. Below is the link to the CDC case counts.

    73. The Prophet says:

      It will get worse because the government wants it to get worse. Intentionally importing thousands of people from the infected countries. Ebola from west Africa and Enterovirus from Central America. The US has already issued over 13,000 visas for Liberians. Unknown how many from the other west African countries. This is intentional. They ain’t coming to work. Your government is clearly your enemy.

      Almost time to avoid large gatherings of people.

    75. The Prophet says:

      By the way, I watched the “hazmat team” disinfecting the Dallas school attended by kids who were exposed to Ebola. The “hazmat team” is nothing more than unskilled “day laborers” in protective suits. One of the “team” was too warm so he rolled up the sleeves on his hazmat suit. This idea that everyone with an official title is a highly trained professional, is nonsense.

    76. The Prophet says:

      I was being treated, 9 years ago, in a recovery room of a top University hospital in the Chicago area. The nurse came in and removed the IV and bloody bandage from my arm. Instead of walking over and placing the hazardous material in the bio-hazard waste container, she threw it at the regular trash can. She missed. She left it on the floor and the building cleaner came by and picked it up with his hand and tossed it in the regular trash can. So much for professionalism. Goodby safety.

      going on diversion means you’re not accepting patients brought in by ambulance. It does not mean you can’t accept patients that walk through the door. An emergency room can’t shut their doors to patients that come through the door it’s illegal

        Going on diversion would be the first step due to potential Ebola contamination. Then they would outright quarantine the ER regardless of the legal situation of closing doors to new patients due to worse legal issues with outright Ebola infections.

        It’s going to be a malpractice lawyer’s wet dream come true.

    81. Where are the people that were in the apartment with the man that died from Ebola in Dallas?????

      I heard on the news they were moved to an isolated place while the apartment was being cleaned. It has beem cleaned – are they back in it????

      I just re-read Tom Clancy’s “Executive Orders,” which is about a fictional ebola attack on the U.S. In the book, once the Feds & the Meds knew what they were dealing with, infectious disease protocols were quickly put into place, and the disease was contained. This book came out in 1996…..have the Feds & the Meds completely forgotten how to respond to an infectious disease in the last 18 years, or was Clancy writing not just a novel, but a novel of pure fantasy? Well I don’t believe they’ve forgotten anything, so either they all have a death wish or this ebola scare is nothing but a hoax, somewhat akin to the swine flu scare in 2009.

        I agree. I’m really incredulous at the medical response.

        Back before H1N1, the standard pandemic preparedness papers discussed closing borders to air traffic as a routine way to limit the spread of contagion.

        During H1N1, it became clear that the airlines rapidly helped spread the contagion as it took too long to realize what was happening and the transportation and medical experts were too slow to respond to that methodology.

        Realize that the entire world is connected due to international trade (which deeply has ruined Americans due to NAFTA and GATT). As a result closing down international travel can cause remarkable force majeure contract faults due to contagion (a legal clause in contracts to as an out to fulfilling the terms of the contract. It used to be called Acts of God before political correctness kicked in).

        So you have medical people more worried about the economic repercussions of limiting air travel, and then allowing infected patients into our borders. Which is totally a FUBAR situation.

        Realize the opposite happened in places like Nigeria where that government tracked down the primary, secondary, and tiertiary contacts from their Patient Zero in order to quarantine them to lessen the infection.

        The CDC are acting like they took stupid pills.

      while she was watching the Simpsons on tv tonite. My wife came up with a new nickname for my private parts. My balls are named Itchy & scratchy and my pecker is called Krusty.

    84. Old Guy says:

      The flu kills about 3500 people in the Us every year. Until tens of thousands die world wide ebola is not a pandemic.

    85. Here are the US cities with most risk of an Ebola outbreak because they have the largest populations from West Africa:

      These are places most likely to have the most travel back and forth to the Ebola impacted countries.
