    Whether the Obama administration is trying to prevent mass panic, attempting to protect their approval rating, or both; the disinformation is concerning, and needs to be exposed to the American public.

    In today's news: now they're saying that if you're around a person infected with Ebola, and they sneeze or cough, the virus may travel up to 9 feet in the air and infect you.
    So much for last week's "you must have direct contact with bodily fluids" lie.



    The 5 Biggest Lies About Ebola Being Pushed by the Obama Adminstration and Mass Media
    IN NEWS, OPINION, WORLD NEWS / BY PRISSY HOLLY / ON OCTOBER 5, 2014 AT 1:57 PM /
    There is a ton of disinformation currently being spread about the Ebola virus, both by the U.S. government and the mass media. This unfortunately will make the Ebola pandemic far worse, since the public is not being told the truth about how it spreads and the preventions that could be employed to prevent the spread of the disease.

    Whether the Obama administration is trying to prevent mass panic, attempting to protect their approval rating, or both; the disinformation is concerning, and needs to be exposed to the American public.

    Lie #1) Ebola will never make it to the United States

    Obama said in a recent statement that Ebola making its way into the United States was “highly unlikely.” It didn’t take long for this lie to be blown out of the water, as the CDC just confirmed the first Ebola patient to be in Dallas, Texas.

    [​IMG]

    Top scientist and former FDA employee Dr. Jesse L. Goodman gave a dire warning that not only will Ebola spread to America, but this is just the beginning of a possible pandemic:

    “…it appears several people were exposed before the individual was placed in isolation, and it is quite possible that one or more of his contacts will be infected.”

    What’s more, he conceded that it was “only a matter of time” that the swift-killing African virus arrived in the U.S.

    Lie #2) Ebola can ONLY be spread through direct contact with bodily fluids

    This is absolutely a false claim and could potentially cost the lives of millions. Ebola can in fact be spread through the air over short distances through airborne particles.

    [​IMG]

    Ebola can also be spread from surfaces contaminated with the disease such as doors, ATM keypads, etc. Although the disease cannot survive in direct sunlight, it can in fact survive for hours in favorable environmental conditions. Places that are dark such as subways, airplanes, and ambulances are the perfect type places for the disease to survive in, providing breeding grounds for viral transmission. Individuals who touch these surfaces can become instantly infected from the simple act of touching their own eyes, nose, or mouth.

    The ability for Ebola to be spread from surfaces contaminated with the virus became the sole reason that so many in Africa have become sick by riding in taxi cabs.

    Lie #3) The government and health officials have everything under control

    The Obama administration came out just a few days ago, stating that they currently have the Ebola virus under control. Lisa Monaco, assistant to the president for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism, said at a press briefing:

    “We know how to do this, and we will do it again. It’s very important to remind the American people that U.S. has the most capable healthcare system and the most capable doctors in the world, bar none.”

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    Despite America having the “most capable healthcare system” and the “most capable doctors in the world,” Ebola still arrived in our country about a week ago, and the infected man walked around the city of Dallas for days while coming into contact with countless people. Unless there is a direct way to ensure that people flying from countries such as Africa are not infected with the disease, this claim by the White House is just complete rhetoric and political posturing. The truth is, no government agency has a way to stop Ebola from walking straight into our country. ISIS has already threatened to walk straight through our southern border, and if you were incessant on bringing America to its knees, that tactic would be a no-brainer. In essence, our government does not actually have Ebola “under control.”

    [​IMG]

    Perhaps even more alarming to their baseless claims of having “everything under control” is the fact that our government just purchased 160,000 hazmat suits, and the fact thatObama just signed an executive order which gave authorization for the government to quarantine any individual who shows symptoms of the infectious disease. It’s enough to make you scratch your head and say “hmmmmm.”

    Lie #4) Ebola came out of nowhere

    Ebola has in fact been around for decades, with the first case ever occurring in Zaire in 1976. But the modern day version of Ebola has been aggressively circulating in such a way that scientists are claiming it could be a bioengineered virus.

    [​IMG]

    The Liberian Observer published a story by Dr. Cyril Broderick, Professor of Plant Pathology, stating that “Ebola is a genetically modified organism (GMO).” He went on to explain that it is confirmed the existence of the American Military-Medical-Industry which conducts biological weapons tests under the guise of administering vaccinations to control diseases and improve the health of “black Africans overseas.”

    [​IMG]

    To further support claims that Ebola was genetically engineered is the fact that the U.S. government patented Ebola in 2010 and now claims intellectual property ownership over all Ebola variants. That patent number is CA2741523A1.

    Lie #5) Ebola could never be weaponized

    With this patent, the U.S. government can now claim ownership over all Ebola research, since any project that involves the replication of the virus would then violate the government’s patent. Being that the current Ebola strain’s ability to transmit has vastly improved over the years compared to outbreaks in the past, many are now convinced that the strain could be a possible “weaponized” variant.

    [​IMG]

    In a Senate hearing, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director, Anthony Fauci testified:

    “Theoretically, you can manipulate almost any virus to change it in any way you want. The only trouble is, it wouldn’t be easy for somebody to do that in their backyard laboratory. They would probably kill themselves doing it. It would take a state-type [actor].”

    This is terrifying, as a weaponized variant could potentially kill 90% of the world’s population.

    Why would the government want to perpetuate these continuous lies to the American pubic? That remains to be seen, as the answer to that question could be an endless array of possibilities.

    Foreign media was reporting that the Dallas patient died on Monday. I found that interesting.



    ISIS is a bunch of crafty and driven mofo's. Why would they NOT get a few infected Ebola patients to infect the rest of us?! They're willing to chop off heads and threaten us, so it's tough to imagine they won't try and get the Ebola thing working.

    I found it really strange that someone stolen the bed linens from that Ebola ward in Liberia (along with everything else).

    For the record, I think the US Government is stupid enough to make giant mistakes which will do as much damage as an organized plan to harm us.


    Example: fence-jumper at the White House.

    They lie to us about everything ... EVERYTHING!

    Can you take even one statement ... one sentence, from anyone in our government without having to de-spin it to discern what they're really saying?

    You had me until "But the modern day version of Ebola has been aggressively circulating in such a way that scientists are claiming it could be a bioengineered virus."

    Get this tin foil bullshit out of here... the reason it's spread is because people are fucking stupid.

    I'm not so sure about the bioengeneered part. I am sure the CDC doctors stood there on TV and told us things that are not true- just a week ago. Are they stupid, or are they lying?

    But "many are now convinced that the strain could be a possible 'weaponized' variant." You can't argue with "many"!

    There's a difference between the government lying to you and the government being wrong.

    And the hazmat suits:

    The U.S. Agency for International Development ordered 5,000 body bags from a Florida company last month as part of its planned response to an outbreak of the Ebola virus in western Africa.

    And as President Obama prepares to enlarge America's aid to affected countries, a company that makes protective clothing says the State Department, which oversees USAID, has invited bids for 160,000 hazmat suits.

    While I admit loving a good conspiracy theory, this one actually holds some weight. Both the Marburg and Ebola virus have very suspicious origins and timings. Not to mention the government loves to test virus on black people. The Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment was still active when both these virus sprung out of nowhere, so I'd fully believe that they'd be willing to test a new bioweapon on African tribesmen.

    Please don't give these maniacs any ideas.
    Several of the fear mongers on the cable news networks have already discussed this since the Dallas case/s.
    It's a very real threat.

    Indeed i have. Mennonites too. I was at the mall once and saw some mennonite chicks in victoria secrets! Oh, and if you are ever in Mennonite territory, Find a farm that sells produce and baked goods. Buy as many snickerdoodles they have for sale. You can thank me later! :hat:
