Selfless: American Doctor Infected with Ebola Asks That Only Dose Of Serum Be Given to Colleague

kent-brantly(Pictured: Dr. Kent Brantly)

Dr. Kent Brantly, who has dedicated his life to helping those in need with the Samaritan’s Purse organization, can be described with a single word.


A dose of “experimental serum” arrived in Liberia to be tried on a U.S. charity worker struggling for her life — but there was only enough for one of the two infected workers, so Dr. Kent Brantly asked that it be used on his colleague, the group Samaritan’s Purse said Thursday.

Dr. Brantly, a doctor with the group who was also infected, tried an alternative treatment, using blood transfused from a young survivor of the virus.

“Yesterday, an experimental serum arrived in the country, but there was only enough for one person. Dr. Brantly asked that it be given to Nancy Writebol,” Franklin Graham, president of Samaritan’s Purse, said in a statement. “However, Dr. Brantly received a unit of blood from a 14-year-old boy who had survived Ebola because of Dr. Brantly’s care. The young boy and his family wanted to be able to help the doctor that saved his life.”


Even with death knocking at his doorstep this American faces it with the ferver of a true hero.

An earlier report indicated he was up and moving around on his own as recently as 24 hours ago, but he is still in critical condition according to physicians.

The Ebola virus has a mortality rate of 90%.

Dr. Brantly may have contracted the virus in a decontamination area and sought treatment as soon as his symptoms were identified, a move which may have given him a fighting chance at beating the deadly disease.

Our thoughts are with him, his family, and others who are fighting for their lives right now.

        They keep saying there is no cure but colloidal silver can destroy any virus or bacteria. Learn to make it and it would not hurt to buy some in very high Parts Per Million (PPM) for a massive emergency dose. Don’t sell any of your guns and ammo either. We will need it soon.

          Two different anchors on Fox are saying that one or more confirmed Ebola patients are either enroute to the US or will be shortly. The CDC has said today that if an Ebola patient were identified in US, it would not be anything to worry about as the patient(s) would “isolated”. WTF?

            Isolation is always after the fact. I work in a hospital and it always amazes me how we can be around a patient for a week, then, suddenly, they are in isolation. Usually it’s all crap; but, if it were truly serious, it seems no good to isolate the patient; every nurse, lab person, MD, Xray, Respiratory, house keeping, and patient visitor has been exposed. I understand incubation times, but it seems like containment is usually a moot point if the threat is real. IMO

          Don’t know if this is true or not, but I recently heard that much of the colloidal silver that is swallowed is neutralized by stomach acid. It was recommended that you either use a nebulizer to absorb it into your lungs, or spray it into the back of your throat, or put a few drops under your tongue and hold it there as long as possible, or take it like an enema and hold it long enough to absorb into your intestines thus sending it through the bloodstream. The best advice would be to do all of the above, including swallowing it even if some of it is ineffective. I just don’t know for sure.

        • Gods Creation

          I don’t think this guy is a hero. Did he transfuse the other “colleague” with that surviving childs blood before he did his own?

          He took his best shot, and a far better chance of good results from something that has worked in the past over an “experimental serum” he saved for his colleague. And do you really think for something so serious that a single dose of anything to fight it is all that was made or sent? What kind of experiment is done with a single dose?

          He may have already had an idea that this serum had little chance of working, and may even be deadly.

          Go ahead and red thumb me, but anything coming out of the “press” is meant to sway opinion about the actors in the story. Could it be these “selfless” people are actually over there to get the virus kicked off to create a global pandemic?

          Is it coincidence that the elites want to kill 90% of the population and the virus has a 90% kill rate? Doctors without Borders and the WHO are globalist funded organizations. Is that also a coincidence?

          How many ebola victims in Africa have been given colloidal silver in high therapeutic doses? My guess is zero. With a 90% kill rate, what have you got to lose by trying it? If you are a globalist, you might lose the ability to kill billions of people and eradicate your own weapon of mass death.

          Choose your hero’s carefully. If you must pick one from over there, choose the child who gave his blood to the doctor first, not the one who passed on an “experimental serum” because he already had antibodies introduced into his system.

          The alternative media has grown to be as far from the truth as the MSM in many respects. Mostly because the ALT media buys into some or all of the MSM propaganda without thinking about it.

            No one can know the heart but God! This doctor knows the 90% death rate and chose to give it to a colleague I would say this is a selfless act as this doctor is relying upon his faith to walk by faith and not by site. For those who are of the faith know that we are only visitors here and our home is with the Lord and so I would believe the best of this young doctor before I would entertain the worst. Satan would have me believe the worst and this man’s faith is a scam.

          • Merree

            My understanding is that the antibodies in the serum from from someone who has recovered from Ebola is one of the few things that has appeared to reduce the mortality rate. However, it is also risky because it can initiate its own immune reactions that can be fatal on their own. It is similar to what is sometimes done with snake bites.

            The experimental drug has scientific evidence behind it but pretty much no practical evidence. It is probably less likely to have severe side effects but the degree that it will be successful is unknown.

            Either choice is risky, both in chance of harm and in the likelihood of benefit. There are no easy choices with this disease.

            • Slick One

              “There are no easy choices with this disease.”

              Here are a few easy choices:

              #1. International quartentine of Africa, No one goes in or out of Africa.

              #2. Anyone remotely suspected of having the Virus to be denied entry to America and should not be allowed to leave Africa.

              #3. Corpse of anyone who died from Ebola to de denied entry to the US for burial, and must be incinerated.

              #4. Anyone who has returned from Africa in the last month to be tracked down and held in a quarentine hospital.

              #5.No Ebola victim to be admitted into America for treatment,(and yes I do infants and children too).

              #6. Any liberals insisting we bring in these diseased third worlders for treatment of Ebola should be deported to the African city with the highest Ebola infection rates.

              See there are easy choices! 🙂

          • Winston Smith

            While I disagree with your vitriol towards this doctor, I do like to see that you think outside the box and question the accepted narrative. As for the 90% kill rate coinciding with what we know the elite would want, it’s something that has crossed my mind as well. It tends to make me suspicious of plans to ship Ebola victims around the world for treatment. They may indeed be treated, but the treatment could itself be a false flag involving a single actor who is part of the treatment of the patient. That person will then spread the disease without the knowledge or consent of the rest of the treatment team by making a critical “mistake”. It’s important that we don’t see all doctors as evil, or part of a conspiracy, but it is also important to realize that there could be a small number that are. Problem is, if that’s the case, then who do you trust?

        • Winston Smith

          Agreed. I am always skeptical of anything that purports to cure anything that ails you. It reminds me too much of traveling patent medicine salesmen of the 1800s. Plus, without clinical tests, how do you know the amount you should take and the amount you should not exceed? Silver may well kill all bacteria and viruses, but then so do bleach, arsenic and plutonium. Yet you wouldn’t think that taking any of them internally was a good idea would you? Yes, I know, EVERYTHING is a conspiracy and it’s only the drug companies holding this thing or that thing back. It may well be true in some cases but in other cases things are not recommended by doctors because they’re not good for you. Until I have objective proof of if and how it works and what amount is healthy I think I’ll pass.

      Related to the topic of Ebola…

      What about a crazy suicide bomber? What about them, you might ask?

      Suicide bombers strap on explosives, then go to places to detonate themselves and kill others in the process.

      Suppose then, someone deliberately infects themselves with a virus like Ebola, or an airborne disease, and during the early contagious stage comes over the U.S. border and deliberately infects everyone around, including unsuspecting border patrol agents.

      These bio-terror suicide bombers inflict massive death and disruption to their hated enemy, the Great Satan of the (Dis)United States.

      Yikes! May it never be!

      I agree with Stew, it’s airbourne. They are not letting it be known just yet.

      “This is a major public health emergency. It’s fierce, deadly and many of our countrymen are dying and we need to act to stop the spread,” Lewis Brown, Liberia’s information minister, told Reuters. “We need the support of the international community now more than ever. We desperately need all the help we can get.”

      As ‘heroic’ and selfless as this sounds, there may be other hands at work here. What he did for his co-worker sounds to me like a genuine act of human kindness, for which I applaud him.

      The thing that worries me *most* is the so-called experimental serum that just emerged…out of nowhere.
      If this ‘miracle’ cure works or not…we may never know.

      From what I have learned of Ebola in the last few weeks, the hemorrhagic portion of the virus is fairly nasty and can cause both internal and external bleeding as well as organ shutdown. Those are not always things that are easily reversed.

      The route the doctor tried (transfusion from an Ebola survivor) is well documented, with some successes already. Basically, you bring in the anti-bodies via blood from the survivor so they will create more anti-bodies in your bloodstream to fight the infection.

      The co-worker (an older woman doctor) and this Brantley probably decided together who should try what route for best odds for all concerned.

      My hats tips to them BOTH and all who try to save others while in danger themselves.

      • The Moon is a Harsh Mistress

        The thing that troubles me about this whole Ebola thing is that it has been known to exist for over 40 years, yet there is no cure or even a vaccine for something so deadly it would end civilization were it to reach the Western world. The medical establishment in the form of the CDC has been experimenting with this virus almost since it was first documented; the rational they give for why there is no cure or vaccine is that it is such a small potential market that pharmaceutical manufacturers would realize no profit from such a vaccine because their primary market would be African nations with no money for vaccines in the first place.

        The explanation on it’s surface sounds reasonable but it raises the bullshit alarm in my mind nevertheless. So there is no commercial profit to be made in a vaccine? This is where there should be a national security interest to protect the nation’s investment in military resources, or to weaponize such a nasty virus because of those same national security interests. Making a vaccine for a weaponized version would be a matter of course; using such a vaccine when there is an outbreak would tip your hand to all other adversaries that you have potentially weaponized such a virus. An airborne version of this virus was being researched in of all places the suburbs of DC; why? Is it because an effective weaponized version would have to be made airborne or an already airborne strain needed to be made virulent to humans to be an effective weapon?

        The rush to bring a potential vaccine/cure to market and fast-track it through the FDA morass is also alarming. This follows the script of Tom Clancy’s “Rainbow Six” to a T. In his novel, there were two vaccines developed; one was the real vaccine, and the second was designed to spread Ebola after a short period of dormancy; pubic demand and fear of a pandemic ensured that the trial vaccine would be rushed to approval and that people would voluntarily get the vaccine so that the entire populace was guaranteed to be exposed to a particularly lethal engineered strain of Ebola. Ordinarily, I am a strong proponent of getting vaccinated, however, in this instance it doesn’t pass the smell test, and if vaccinations were offered I would refuse. If it was legitimate, herd immunity would protect me, and if it wasn’t, proximity to the infected would mean almost certain death anyway.

          • Breathial

            After working for Big Pharma for a couple of years and getting to see how they REALLY think, I moved on. Your assessment is- unfortunately- quite correct.

            Short summary: I found a condition in my facility that was dangerous and highly illegal. When I started to fix it, they stopped the project, tried to force me out. When I protested to the director, he said they were aware of the situation, and didn’t want it fixed because it might risk their operations. His exact words were “I’d rather risk some lives than my [facility], because it is MY life. If you don’t like that or can’t live with this then find work elsewhere.” I left quickly.

            Big Pharma is concerned with only ONE thing; profits.

        • John W.

          There is no vaccine for the common cold either. So what is your point? You think coming up with anti viral cures is easy? Micro biology plus many viruses are retros. As soon as a cure is found the virus mutates. better save the lame brained conspiracy for something else. Hard to believe that Obama is still going through with his big African leader get together in light of this. Let’s pray for a happy ending.

          • The Moon is a Harsh Mistress

            John W.,

            An outbreak of common cold doesn’t kill 90% of those who are infected. And it doesn’t result in the end of civilization should it spread like wildfire. Cures for some diseases should be researched and created, using money appropriated from military spending or CDC budget, etc,. solely because of the existential threat that they pose.

            We spend untold billions on AIDS and breast cancer research, yet half the population is not susceptible to the latter, and the former is not a threat if you are not a hemophiliac, a Haitian, a homosexual, or have unprotected heterosexual sex.

        • Cold_War_Relic

          Profit does play a major part in vaccines for the “public”. Case in point, the only pharmaceutical company making the anti serum for coral snake bites is no longer making the anti venom serum because of a lack of “profits”.

          Can you imagine being on vacation in say “Disney World” in Florida and your child gets bitten by a coral snake and there is nothing you can do because a company doesn’t see a profit in making the serum.

          Same thing with ebola, I’m sure they have something stored up somewhere for this just in case it becomes weaponized, but for the public, no there just isn’t a profitable margin for it. Unless it goes airborne!

          We shall see how this gets played out.

        • Vicky

          Everything in Obama’s administration reeks of “B.S.” I know that there has to be a market so all the pharmacy companies can make billions, and orphan drugs just disappear (like the vaccine for poison ivy) but surely the CDC realizes Ebola is a life and death situation.

      I hope he doesn’t have a wife and children? If not, then he was very courageous and selfless. If he does have wife and children, then he was foolish, wreckless and irresponsible.

      • Walt Kowalski

        The doctor is married and has a wife and children as well.

        The doctor is part of the Samaritan’s Purse organization (which is headed by Franklin Graham..son of Rev. Billy Graham)

        Of course…the God haters here would never be willing to admit that someone could actually be willing to give their own lives to save others. That doesn’t fit in their twisted view of those who believe in God. For them….they only believe that people who believe in God are out to do evil.

        I freely admit that I wear my tin-foil hat pretty tight sometimes, and have suspicions about what we hear in the media. (and for good reason). But those of you who see some deep conspiracy in what this man has done…and continues to do in his selfless act are really barking up the wrong tree.

        The doctor who is infected was neither reckless or irresponsible. He was doing what MANY people do who go to these third world countries…….trying to save lives.

        I must admit, I am ambivalent about his (and his infected co-worker) coming back to the states for treatment. To me, that’s an unacceptable risk to people here. This virus MUST be contained. And moving infected people to other locations to my way of thinking is an unacceptable risk.

        I’d suggest that folks try to find the book, “The Hot Zone”. It is a well documented account of the first known cases of Ebola that happened back in the mid 70’s.

        This virus is a potential “slate wiper”.

        Having said all this, I also would find it no surprise that the globalists/elitists who actually want to destroy most of mankind will take the opportunity to use this to further their ends. But this doctor is not part of that conspiracy, I assure you. And he is not the first medical worker who has been a victim of this terrible plague. There have been many others who have been infected in previous outbreaks and gave their lives trying to save others.

        Those of you who condemn this doctor..and those trying to stop this outbreak should be ashamed.

        Finally….this would be a good opportunity to perhaps view again the History Channel docudrama that came out a couple of years ago called, “After Armageddon”. If this thing goes global, the scenario in this film is very plausible.

        Keep a close eye on the news over the next three weeks especially. The man who died in Nigeria was on two airplanes and four airport terminals, and was hot with virus during much of that time. If we start seeing cases appear in other parts of the world that have no obvious connection to Africa, then we know that this plague has “escaped into the wild”. At that point…..we’d better be prepared to hunker down. The potential for pandemic and wide spread pandemonium will be very high. Martial law will be a very likely possibility.

        • Winston Smith

          I take no issue with this doctor. What scares me is the ability for his presence in the US -while still recovering and contagious- to be used for evil. It’s not that he will do evil, it’s that others may use his presence to further the globalist agenda. Also, I am afraid of people making honest mistakes that are just as tragic and horrible as anything done intentionally that would spread this virus into the civilian population.

      • The Moon is a Harsh Mistress

        Yes, he is married and his wife and young children were there with him; believe they left shortly before he started showing symptoms to return to Texas. Since Ebola is present in semen, what do you think the odds are that his wife might now be a carrier?

        And what in the hell is wrong with someone that they bring their young children to the epicenter of the most horrific pandemic in modern times? When I was still in the military and I deployed to a war zone I didn’t bring my wife and son; I do not know what possessed him to do so and his wife for accepting and bringing the children into that mess.

        • Walt Kowalski

          It’s my understanding that Dr. Brantley’s wife left the country before the doctor was exposed to the virus.

          They are missionaries with Samaritans Purse. Most missionaries have their families with them on the field.

          We can only hope that she and her children are not infected. But I am far more concerned about others “under the radar” who might have been infected over there without knowing it who got on planes and have flown God knows where.

            • BJ

              I believe in the whole missionary thing….but to have your wife and child any where close to ebola is foolish IMO. And I believe when we stand before God on judgement day that we will be judged first on our relationship with Him…..what kind of child were you to God. Second, what kind of husband were you……your wife was a gift. And third, what kind of father were you….your children were gifts as well….did you care for them? When you give yourself up for anything other than God or your family, I believe you are acting irresponsible because your family needs you alive with them to lead and care for them.

        Sgt. Dale: “well If he dies I believe he has a place in Heaven waiting for him.”

        It’s reasonable to think so. Biblical Christians will rejoice in the following:

        “The congregation at Southside Church of Christ left Wednesday night Bible study with yellow ribbons that were paper-clipped to cards bearing a photo of a smiling young physician who used to attend the church.

        They were encouraged to tie the ribbons to their vehicles or backpacks to show concern for Dr. Kent Brantly and to pray for his full recovery.

        The card quotes I Thessalonians 5:16-18: “Rejoice always. Pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”

        Brantly, 33, contracted the Ebola virus while serving with a Christian relief organization in Liberia. Brantly, his wife and two children attended the church on Hemphill Street south of the Medical District for about five years.

        Church elder Kent Smith said he received a text from the organization, Samaritan’s Purse, a few minutes before he was to speak Wednesday night. Brantly is doing slightly better, the text said, but “he’s not out of the woods yet,” Smith relayed.

        Brantly’s wife, Amber Brantly, emailed Smith Tuesday morning and said she just wants everyone to know that “Joy follows suffering and life follows death.”

        Prepping lesson: Prep your soul first. Highest priority.

        Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

    27. Meat Eater


      Exactly! It is all about the VACCINES.

      As this is my first comment on this site I request the administrators dont censor this comment as it comes from a Biological Scientist and ex ‘Goverment employee’ who had the plans of the NWO explained to him 20 years ago (I did not believe them at the time):

      The disease itself is a distraction – THINK VACCINES!

      There will indeed eventually be some form of contagion by design, it is a component of the larger NWO project as explained to me many years ago and as ‘predictively programmed’ to the masses through many Hollywood movies. However, it wont be what most peple think it will be as the crisis will be created in such a way to direct the masses behaviour and advance a pre-planned agenda (several agendas in fact).

      When it comes, the ‘created crisis’ will firstly be used to push the masses towards getting a vaccination / justify forced vaccination.

      Also, and if they can get away with it, an ‘outbreak’ situation will be used as cover to instigate martial law and impliment draconian executive orders passed by both the current and previous US and UK regimes. Continental Europe and Russia will be presented with this and another issue which is yet to come to fruition. North Africa and the Middle East, well, just watch and see what happens there, it will shock the world (is already beginning to).

      Dont focus on the distraction (ebola / swine flu / bird flu / bubonic plague / etc) look for the main event happening whilst you look elsewhere. Always think vaccination.

      Vaccination will be used for several purposes, primarily population control (but not reduction in the early stages, that comes later). Imagine if proof of vaccination was required in order to continue working, or to enter a shopping mall, public space, or even travel between towns. Imagine if proff of vaccination was required simply to buy some food.

      Much more insidious, no evil, is latent seeding (ie the introduction of an agent into the body through a vaccine which will be activated at a later date through exposure to a secondary chemical or virus).

      Remember the recent global beta test for mass fear induced vaccination? All the ‘flus’?

      It is vaccines, or rather what is inside the vaccines, which are the real threat, and always have been!

      We have been conditioned to accept vaccines as being ‘good’, and not the evil vehicle for harmful substances (some of which, in the same as GMO food, only affect future generations as rodant studies have shown). Some of the active ingrediants have already passed testing (what do you think the Gates funded vaccination programes in Africa were really for?).

      Watch for the mass vaccination programme at somepoint in the future – for our protection of course (sarc) against this or some other type of terrible flesh eating disease or whatever the ministry of propaganda comes out with.

      Never forget, a vacine can contain anything, anything at all, either for activation now, activation on contact with some other chemical / virus / factor, or carried through induced mutations in the grm line to our children or our childrens children.


      • Anonymous

        Meat Eater,

        I’ve got kids. Will my family be able to get food and water in the future if we don’t get vaccinated, or will my kids be social outcasts for the rest of their lives? Will the government try to take my kids away if I don’t comply?

        • California Girl

          Will those who refuse to comply and take the vaccine be the ones sent to the FEMA camps for quarantine?

        • Meat Eater

          Annonymous & California Girl,

          Sorry for the delay in replying.

          The information I have was passed to me over 20 years ago, at a time when I was totally ‘asleep’ to the system, and therefore in disbelief as to what I was hearing. To be honest, at the time, because I did not believe what I was being told (even though it was by a senior government official and high degree freemason), I did not pay as much attention as I should have.

          I appologise, but all I can remember is what I have typed above in my first comment. However, from other experience I have had with foreign law enforcement I can speculate. I would speculate that people who refuse to be vaccinated will be dealt with quite harsly by the authorities – as such people will be designated as ‘threats’ to public health.

          If the government manage to instigate martial law then the harshness of the treatment of people can be raised exponentially. From previous experience, such people could be dealt with summarily (ie shot and thier bodies burned in situ – a situation I have seen before where the occupants of a home were shot and then the house set on fire with the bodies still inside).

          Fear filled people are capable of doing things we currently consider abhorrant, and the threat of contamination from a person carrying a flesh eating plague will give justification for some terrible abuses.

          Since this plan was revealed to me I have noticed a significant focus being given to the ‘zombie meme’. This is part of the psy op to condition people to view diseased people as no longer human and to be disposed of on sight.

          As I say, I can only speculate as to what could happen if this gets traction, and although I could give many more potential scenarios I wont (because all it would do is incite just as much fear as the government are currently trying to do).

          Just keep in mind this is all part of a bigger plan to control the movement and actions of the population. Humans have made these plans, and humans are not infallible, so lets hope/pray that the plans of the NWO fail.

      For those of you idiots musing on “I don’t wanna do violence, but when…defend family…constitution…blah blah fucking blah…”

      You’re already one step closer to losing the game of survival. SHTF is not for pussies. We have to grow up and face realities, talk about things that sound cruel, maybe even insane at times…

      You need to condition yourself…and that means visualizing pulling the fucking trigger when it matters…calmly, calculatingly, and with intent for center mass. Every time you go out in public, you train…your eyes focus first on their hands, and second on their waistbands and pockets, looking for a telltale bulge. You watch documentaries on body language and learn to guess how dangerous a particular man could be.

      For others, the challenge will be to stay a decent man in SHTF…those of us who are tempted to do violence for pleasure, take the things we want, and get inside those beautiful women. The temptation to become Mr. Kurz, to play god, to go on power trip in SHTF…the thought of unlimited helpless women for your use…many of you think you know yourselves…but the truth is you don’t know what kind of person you really are until SHTF.

      “War and famine would not do. Instead, disease offered the most efficient and fastest way to kill the billions that must soon die if the population crisis is to be solved. AIDS is not an efficient killer because it is too slow. My favorite candidate for eliminating 90 percent of the world’s population is airborne Ebola (Ebola Reston), because it is both highly lethal and it kills in days, instead of years. “We’ve got airborne diseases with 90 percent mortality in humans. Killing humans. Think about that. “You know, the bird flu’s good, too. For everyone who survives, he will have to bury nine”

For their sake I hope he is well and will be on the first plane home when he is no longer contagious. Hero…no. Stupid…yes!!!

        Heroes are all of us, at one time or another. Some of us serve others and put ourselves…and indirectly our families in harms way every day. Think about Police, Firefighters, Doctors, nurses, etc…

        Not *all* of them do it for the steady paychecks and pension, but out of a genuine desire to do good in this mad, mad, mad world.

        The fact that this young doctor desired to help others far across the sea is no different than those who do it near their homes every day. But it is harder on his family with all that distance and worry.

        Try not to be so quick to judge others actions as hero or zero- that’s something I used to do and it’s not a redeeming quality, I assure you.

        Buck, I’ll try to be civil. We all pray for this man’s speedy recovery and return to his family, but he did something not very many people would voluntarily do these days. You’re passing judgment on him too quickly. That’s a mistake. Let this affair run its entire course before making such a judgment call.

        Go easy on the doctor…he might be in a loan forgiveness program or paying off his hundreds of thousands of dollars of med school debt…I suspect he and his wife discussed the possibilities and she supported him in his desire…whatever drove him….for whatever reason. That doctor knew the risks…he is a better person than I could ever hope to be…

        Dr. Robert Lahita, says that the people should not so concerned. All those misplaced germs before. No concern.

        Why take the damn chance of a breakout!

        Remember if your going to hell you still have to go through Atlanta. Major airline hub.

    47. Patriot Mom

      Dr. Brantly, a real man. A true human being.

      BUT this worries me about the patient with ebola being flown to Atlanta hospital. Can we trust this hospital to take great care of this not spreading out from the health workers? After all, Dr. Brantly caught this in a decontamination area.

        Can Liquid silver cure him?

        Ebola is a “level 4 containment” class virus.

        Unless he is transported and treated in a level 4 containment environment, there is severe (i.e. unacceptable) risk to the population.

        As much as I want to see the doctor recover, to my way of thinking, bringing him back here to US soil is an unacceptable risk to the population.

        Really? Good!

        Then they know MY friends in the NSA and THEY should be afraid of THEM. 😉

      • slingshot

        So what. If you signed up for Obama care they know who you are. IRS knows who you are. If you have been in the military they know who you are. Passport or security clearance. NSA at airports can become real personal.

        How much data collection do they have on you. A bunch.

        Well then they know me,,,

        • Walt Kowalski

          I agree Kulafarmer….

          Screw ’em.

          • Kulafarmer

            Well thats the thing,
            Ive been a pretty much stand up hard working productive guy all my life,
            Its not like im invisible! So to think you are anonymous is a laugh!
            To be worried about the who and what ifs,,,
            Not worth worrying

        DHS already knows who we are. Can you still hear me NSA?

      I’m reminded of Jim Elliot. He was missionary in Ecuador who died for his faith. He said, “He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose.”

      But apparently there is a patented vaccine for Ebola see us patent –

    51. Charlie

      To borrow a line from the fictional Russian boxer Ivan Drago in the Rocky movie series—“If he dies—he dies.” This guy is an MD. Meaning he likely sold his soul to Big Medicine, Big Hospital and Big Pharma long ago. Therefore, the idea that he’d ask for modalities such as reduced L-glutathione, calcium D glucarate, beta glucans, colostrum, astaxanthin, B-vitamins, ascorbyl palmitate, selenium, magnesium, taurine, and botanicals like orange peel oil, aronia and yes—plain lemon juice in plain water—will not happen. He prefers to be buried rather than to beat this thing with the abhorred “natural” treatments.

    52. Patriot Mom

      I’m not a doctor, or play one on tv or real life, but the first inkling I had of being exposed, I would start a protocol of 5k ascorbic acid 4x day, 25 drops oil of oregano with high carvacrol every 4 hours, raw garlic every two hours, 4k grapefruit seed extract, and 8 oz colloidal silver every 4 hours. Then I would get me some thieves oil and take that and diffuse it and take a drop every hour under the tongue. And yes, lemon juice…. and maybe some apple cider vinegar. I would fight like hell with God’s natural medicine. I’m not saying…. take natural stuff for things like heart attack, but viruses can be arrested because I killed swine flu in a family member who was very sick with that above protocol.

      Ebola isn’t new.

      Traditionally its managed by completely isolating the village or area and it dies out. And that seems to work. Most of the village dies, but it doesn’t spread.

      Western medicine and governments have come along and we don’t have the stomach to isolate people and let nature take its course, so we interfere and in the process spread it more widely.

      If it gets out in the wider world, it will not be some grand conspiracy. It will once again by the powerful first world nations interfering with natural process and screwing it up.

      Im not saying we should never treat dangerous disease, but the process with has successfully worked for dozens of outbreaks this time doesn’t seem to be and this to a large degree comes down to western inference and how we have been managing the infections – all be it with good intentions.


    54. Molly Pitcher

      Well, speaking of big med and big pharma….what a marketing feather in the cap for Emory if they succeed in this man beating the disease.

    55. Angry American

      This “selfless” American hero went over to infection hot zones full well knowing the risks, gets himself infected, and now continues his pattern of “selfless” acts by coming back to the US and forcing his country to pay for and accept the very same risks? I guess it’s all in the spin you put on it. In my opinion, “Do not call that dog hero, call him shithead.” (From “The Jerk”)

    56. Illogical

      In Star Trek, Spok committed the selfless act of intentionally placing himself in harm’s way by going into the damaged warp reactor in order to save his crew-mates. His logic was that, “the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.” He was a hero.

      Now if he had second thoughts after entering the reactor, and demanded to be let out, even at the risk of exposing the entire crew to the danger, he would not be a hero. He would be a douche bag.

    57. mongrel warrior

      The only thing I believe in is how gullible people can be. If CNN says the guy is OK then everything must be cool. The article says that he put his patients first. So why is he risking the safety of the whole North American continent by coming back here?
