KILAUEA, VOLCANOES AND THE GRAND SOLAR MINIMUM 6-17-2018

In addition to everything else going on right now, in terms of human folly, we are also dealing with natural cycles impacting human life. Here is the link to a live view of the Kilauea crater/caldera. My view is there is now a fifty percent chance of a volcanic eruption at either the expanding crater, or fissure eight forming a volcanic crater.

Here is a link to the latest from Grand Solar Minimum Update for 6-17-2018 with Diamond of Oppenheimer Ranch.

It includes video of the ongoing eruptions in Japan, the new eruption on the Galapagos Islands, and the continuing collapse of the caldera at Kilauea. I will remind everybody that volcanic eruptions spew large amounts of atmospheric aerosols, ie dirt and rock, toxic gases, and other particulate matter high into the stratosphere. Once there, all this “volcanic stuff,” circles the globe, and blocks sunlight. It is the volcanic version of the famous “nuclear winter.” We have multiple, historic examples, like 1816’s “year with no summer,” or Iceland’s volcano eruption of 1783. It was the 1783 Iceland eruption that resulted in several years of crop failures in Europe. The final result of that particular eruption was the French Revolution of 1789. At any rate, to quote GSM, ” it will lead to the collapse of Empires.” We already seeing crop damage, from hail, cold and wind. I highly suggest you add to your food stockpiles.

In my case, although I see what is happening, and have for several decades, well let’s just say, I am going down with the Empire. I will leave with three quotes on death, which is what we all face, some sooner, and some later. Bluntly put, what we called the “mass die off,” way back in the much quainter times of pre Y2K, is soon to start. It may result from this new “Disease X,” and a global pandemic, or it may result from mass starvation from agricultural failure from the now underway Grand Solar Minimum.  It is upon us, to quote Denathor, Steward of Gondor in the Lord of the Rings triology, to Merry Pippin, “Go and die as you see fit.”

The first quote is: The Man Who Knows His Fate Knows No Fear. Lord Kageshita of Japan.

The second quote is: If you fear death, you are already dead.

The third quote is: To Live the Inferior Life is Worthless.

The fourth quote is: If you are not afraid of death, you are in control of life.

I am saying that natural, ecological and solar cycles are now starting to impact daily human life on Planet Earth. I also suggest you prepare yourself for what is now starting to happen, including the spiritual aspects.

CHINA’S BIRD FLU, DOOM PORN AND GLOBAL DISEASE PANDEMIC 6-16-2018

First, it looks like the GFS models were way off relating to potential Gulf of Mexico Hurricanes this weekend. I’m glad to be wrong, and have no problem admitting when I am wrong, or quote sources that are wrong. Houston, Texas, enjoy the weekend.

Next, we have the Ebola epidemic in Africa, which is, according to the WHO and CDC had no cases the last three weeks.  According to the official data, the number of cases actually went down from 62 to 55. The three patients fled the hospital, went to the prayer meeting, died a few hours later, and, according to the CDC and WHO not one single infection resulted from that exposure. Again, the official total, as of June 10th, is a total of 55 cases, which is almost exactly the same as the month before. The CDC and WHO would have us believe that not a single new Ebola infection has happened since May 21st, despite the three infected Ebola patients running around the city.

Finally, we have this prime example of Doom porn over at Zerohedge. The use of term “Disease X,” is classic. The threat of “three mutations away from a global pandemic,” is also classic, especially when the article quotes a disease expert in the body of the article saying that is nearly impossible. Obviously, something is going on in China related to the bird flu. Obviously, over 600 people have died, and the disease has a kill rate of 40 percent. A flu that has a 40 percent kill rate is lethal indeed, once you factor in a normal flu with a kill rate under ten percent. Viral and bacterial infections want a low kill rate to help them spread. If a virus of bacteria kills nearly everybody who gets infected, it will die out rapidly. At any rate, both the link, and my thoughts about it are below.

EBOLA IN AFRICA AND NEW BIRD FLU IN CHINA 6-15-2018

We are always about one infected person, and one plane ride away from a global pandemic. It looks like the latest version of the bird flu is now loose in China. A flu that has a 40 percent kill rate, is a very dangerous one. The usual kill rate for flu is below ten percent. If this one makes the “three mutations,” the article talks about, then Katy bar the doors.

Disease experts have long feared what is called the “China soup.” The soup being farms, water, ducks/chickens, bird feces, and a billion people or more. When you mix that all up, you end up with bird flu.

the link is here. Now this story is prime doom porn, when you read the fine print. Disease X is a masterstroke of doom porn.

‘DISEASE X’: New Strain Of Bird Flu Kills 40% Of Those Who Contract, 100s Dead In China

A “new” strain of deadly bird flu dubbed “Disease X” by the World Health Organization (WHO) has killed hundreds of people in China, and is just three mutations away from becoming transmissible between humans, according to experts.

The strain, H7N9, circulates in poultry and has killed 623 people out of 1,625 infected in China – a mortality rate of 38.3%. While first identified in China in 2013, H7N9 has recently emerged as a serious threat seemingly overnight.

rofessor Jonathan Van-Tam, deputy chief medical officer for the UK, told The Telegraph that H7N9 could cause a global outbreak.

“[H7N9] is an example of another virus which has proven its ability to transmit from birds to humans,” said Van-Tam, who added “It’s possible that it could be the cause of the next pandemic.”

The WHO says N7N9 is “an unusually dangerous virus for humans,” and “one of the most lethal influenza viruses that we’ve seen so far”

H7N9 viruses have several features typically associated with human influenza viruses and therefore possess pandemic potential and need to be monitored closely,” said Dr. Yoshihiro Kawaoka of the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Researchers led by James Paulson of the Scripps Research Institute in California have been studying the mutations which could potentially occur in H7N9’s genome to allow for human-to-human infection.

The team’s findings, published in the journal PLoS Pathogens on Thursday, showed that in laboratory tests, mutations in three amino acids made the virus more able to bind to human cells — suggesting these changes are key to making the virus more dangerous to people. -Japan Times

That said, the mutations would need to occur relatively close to each other to become more virulent, which has a low probability of happening according to Fiona Culley, an expert in respiratory immunology at Imperial College London.

“Some of the individual mutations have been seen naturally … these combinations of mutations have not,” and added: “The chances of all three occurring together is relatively low.”

Wenday Barclay, a virologist and flu specialist also at Imperial College says the study’s findings reinforce the need to keep the H7N9 bird flu under close surveillance.

“These studies keep H7N9 virus high on the list of viruses we should be concerned about,” she said. “The more people infected, the higher the chance that the lethal combination of mutations could occur.”

According to the CDC, Human infections with bird flu viruses can happen when enough virus gets into a person’s eyes, nose or mouth, or is inhaled. This can happen when virus is in the air (in droplets or possibly dust) and a person breathes it in, or when a person touches something that has virus on it then touches their mouth, eyes or nose.

EBOLA WARNING UPDATE 5-28-2018

My blog readers know I have been following the current Ebola outbreak in Africa for some time now. While I have attempted to provide timely, accurate and reasonable information about this outbreak, I have not pulled any punches. Therefore, I am bringing this to your attention for one reason. You need to have factored in how you will personally prepare for an Ebola outbreak here in CONUS. I am not saying that is going to happen. I am saying it might happen, and all of us need to “honor the threat.” If you wait until “they” tell you Ebola is here in CONUS, it will be too late. The following is based on FACTS, and not hysteria, or breathless announcements colored by “doom porn.” You may take it seriously, or you may ignore it. The choice is up to you, but one of the reasons I started this blog in the first place, was to provide information, credible information, to my blog readers so they can make intelligent, informed decisions based on the information I provide them. Take the below with as much salt as you care too, but be aware the following isn’t doom porn. The information is based on FACTS, solid, documented data and reflects a reasonable analysis based on that information. The bottom line is the 3 people who escaped the DRC hospital, well two of them were late stage, highly infectious and went to a public venue with nearly 60 people there.

The below is my comments over at timebomb2000.com

21 DAYS UNTIL EBOLA CHAOS

Barbou posted her article here on May 28th. The article stated the “Ebola breakout,” happened on Monday, May 21st. Further, the article stated the “incubation period,” for Ebola was 21 days.

THIS MEANS THE 50 TO 60 PEOPLE EXPOSED TO THE LATE STAGE, HIGHLY, HIGHLY INFECTIOUS EBOLA PATIENTS WERE EXPOSED ON MAY 21ST. FURTHER, “THEY” NOW THINK UP TO 600 ADDITIONAL PEOPLE WERE EXPOSED, WHO THEN EXPOSED STILL MORE PEOPLE.

THE BOTTOM LINE IS THREE WEEKS FROM MAY 21ST IS JUNE 11TH. FINALLY, IF ANY OF THOSE ORIGINAL PEOPLE WERE INFECTED, AND THEY THEN INFECTED OTHERS DURING THE THREE WEEK PERIOD, WE WILL SEE A SPIRAL TYPE INCREASE IN TOTAL EBOLA PATIENTS STARTING ON JUNE 11TH, AND THEN CONTINUING TO INCREASE IN NUMBERS OVER THE NEXT MONTH OR SO.

WE SHOULD ALSO BEAR IN MIND THAT IF ANY OF THE INFECTED TRAVELED IT WILL FURTHER SPREAD THE DISEASE IN AFRICA. IT MAY ALSO SPREAD GLOBALLY DEPENDING ON WHO WAS EXPOSED, HOW MANY WERE EXPOSED, AND WHERE THEY WENT FROM THAT ONE CITY. IF ANY OF THEM GOT ON THE RIVER AND WENT ANYWHERE, YOU WILL HAVE ADDITIONAL, SEPARATE EBOLA OUTBREAKS START TO HAPPEN.

Oh yeah, mid June may be the start date for the real Ebola outbreak.

https://www.theorganicprepper.com/ebola-outbreak-us/

A new Ebola outbreak is on the radar in the Congo and just over a week ago had reached a city of more than a million people. Well, things likely got a whole lot worse over the weekend when family members of 3 infectious patients with confirmed cases of Ebola broke them out of quarantine and took them to a prayer meeting with at least 50 people. That may seem like it’s a long way from the US but read on.

People at the prayer meeting were definitely exposed, as two of the patients were in the most infectious stages of the disease, with vomiting and diarrhea.

Two of the three escapees are dead and the third was returned to the quarantine center.

The UK Independent interviewed Dr. Jean-Clement Cabrol, emergency medical coordinator for Medecins Sans Frontiers (Doctors Without Borders):

“The escape was organized by the families, with six motorcycles as the patients were very ill and couldn’t walk,” Dr. Cabrol told a news briefing in Geneva after returning from the affected region.

“They were taken to a prayer room with 50 people to pray. They were found at two in the morning, one of them dead and one was dying. So that’s 50-60 contacts right there. The patients were in the active phase of the disease, vomiting.” (source)

It’s not unusual in the Congo for this to happen, according to WHO spokesperson Tarik Jasarevic.

He said that both of the deceased had been given a safe and dignified burial and added that “it was only human” that sick people wanted to be with their families “in what could be the last moments of life”.

“It is very unfortunate that people fled the treatment centre, but it is not unexpected. We had this in previous outbreaks,” he said. (source)

Jasarevic said that this makes it particularly important to engage with the community so they can understand how Ebola spreads and the urgency of getting medical attention.

Tracking down the contacts of the escaped Ebola patients

Now the work begins of tracking down everyone with whom the escaped patients may have been in contact to try and prevent the outbreak from getting out of the city into an even more populated area.

Because Ebola has a 21-day incubation period, an infected person might not realize they have contracted the disease until it’s too late and they’ve exposed uncounted others to it.

Health officials started trying to trace the motorcycle drivers and other people who came into contact with the patients as soon as the escape was reported, Dr. Peter Salama, head of emergency response at the WHO, told Reuters.

“From the moment that they escaped, the health ministry, WHO, and partners have been following very closely every contact,” he said.

All it takes is one sick person to travel down the Congo River and we can have outbreaks seeded in many different locations … that can happen at any moment. It’s very hard to predict,” he said, referring to the river linking the trading hub of Mbandaka to the capital Kinshasa, whose population is 10 million.

More than 600 contacts have been identified so far.

Could this Ebola outbreak spread to Europe and the US?

If a person with Ebola gets to the capital city, that’s when people in other areas really need to begin paying attention. Kinshasa is a major transportation hub.

Software called FLIRT (FLIght Risk Tracker) has determined where the virus could potentially spread from there.

They used flight date from the airports in Mbandaka, Kinshasa, and Brazzaville to predict the places most at risk for infection and found that these cities are the most closely connected to the point of origin.

  • Pointe-Noire, Republic of Congo
  • Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
  • Brazzaville, Republic of Congo
  • Lubumbashi, Democratic Republic of Congo
  • Brussels, Belgium
  • Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo
  • Paris, France
  • Nairobi, Kenya
  • Johannesburg, South Africa
  • Kisangani, Democratic Republic of Congo

The countries which are the most connected are:

  • Democratic Republic of Congo
  • Republic of Congo
  • Ethiopia
  • Belgium
  • France
  • Kenya
  • South Africa
  • Gabon
  • Morocco
  • Côte d’Ivoire

It’s not hard to see how easily this outbreak could reach highly populated parts of Europe. And then, it could go anywhere.

Including the United States. EcoHealth Alliance reports:

The analysis ranks the United States 17th on the list, with 0.5 percent of outgoing passengers entering the country. The U.S. cities with the highest percentage (greater than 0.01 percent) of incoming passengers coming from the Democratic Republic of Congo are:

  1. New York (JFK): 0.13% of US-bound passengers coming from the Region of Interest (ROI)
  2. Miami (MIA): 0.11% of US-bound passengers coming from ROI
  3. Atlanta (ATL): 0.06% of US-bound passengers coming from ROI
  4. Boston (BOS): 0.05% of US-bound passengers coming from ROI
  5. Los Angeles (LAX): 0.05% of US-bound passengers coming from ROI
  6. Detroit (DTW): 0.04% of US-bound passengers coming from ROI
  7. Washington, D.C. (IAD): 0.02% of US-bound passengers coming from ROI
  8. Cincinnati (CVG): 0.01% of US-bound passengers coming from ROI
  9. Dallas-Ft. Worth (DFW): 0.01% of US-bound passengers coming from ROI
  10. Newark (EWR): 0.01% of US-bound passengers coming from ROI
  11. Chicago (ORD): 0.01% of US-bound passengers coming from ROI
  12. Ft. Lauderdale (FLL): 0.01% of US-bound passengers coming from ROI

It only takes one sick person on any of these flights to result in a global pandemic that could wipe out millions of people.

“While the percentage of overall passengers entering the U.S. from that region is low,” said Dr. Peter Daszak, President of EcoHealth Alliance. “With approximately half a million passengers traveling from the Democratic Republic of Congo each year, the disease requires just one infected traveler to cause a global public health emergency, and this helps us be forewarned and prepared.” (source)

The last time Ebola reached our shores, we got very, very lucky. One patient completely overwhelmed an entire hospital. If there were hundreds or thousands of patients across the country, it wouldn’t take long for things to devolve into absolute chaos. Ebola can have a death rate as high as 90%.

Like I said in the previous article I wrote on this topic, it isn’t time to batten down the hatches but it’s certainly time to be watchful and make sure that you are prepared for the potential of a pandemic. As you can see, it isn’t a stretch of the imagination to think that the deadly disease could once again reach the US.

Ebola could easily spread outside the Congo and by the time it does, everyone else will be vying for the same supplies.

IS DAVID WILKERSON’S PROPHECY BEING TRIGGERED? 5-27-2018

Many years ago, back in 1993, Pastor David Wilkerson made a prophecy related to the trigger event for an economic collapse being pulled in Germany, of all places. The decades went by, life went on, and people forgot about it. Well, today’s events in Italy, with the imminent collapse of the “new populist government,” and the resulting economic chaos the government collapse is unleashing, required me to take a closer look. I wrote a book on Ezekiel’s prophecy about Gog and Magog, called “Ezekiel’s Islamic Confederacy,” waaaaaay back in 1992, so I have long had an interest in Bible Prophecy. Granted, I don’t put Pastor Wilkerson in the same class as either Ezekiel, or Isiah, but I take him seriously. At at rate, here is what Pastor Wilkerson said, and here is the economic crisis now unfolding in Italy. Further, Turkey, under its delusional leader Erdogan, is suffering from a currency collapse. Right now, we have imminent financial disasters happening in Italy, Turkey, Spain, and  possibly Germany.

The reason Germany’s economy would collapse is it is tied to the EURO currency, and it is the EURO peg that caused all the problems in Greece, and now Spain, Italy, and Turkey. The Germans will now have to potentially “bail out,” Italy, Spain, and Turkey. This is after Germany has already bailed out Greece, more or less. Wilkerson’s prophecy may, repeat may, indicate that Germany is going to refuse to deal with Italy, Spain, and Turkey, which is a NATO member, although not an EU member. If Germany does that, it may trigger a general collapse of the EURO, followed by a general collapse of the EU. Finally, when you throw Brexit into the mix, things get even more dicey for both the EURO and the EU. Again, I am just pointing out that Wilkerson’s prophecy just exploded out of nowhere in the last several days. What happens if Spain, Italy, and Turkey unleash total economic chaos in Europe over the next week or so? I am just bring this to the attention of my blog readers. Actually, we now have two natural disasters, volcanoes on the Big Island, and the first storm of the season in the Gulf of Mexico.

Is a possible Greek or Italian default the marker of a prophecy given by David Wilkerson 20 years ago. Do the Greek people have any say in what their Euro masters tell them to do. Is America headed for a bank holiday? Is Mexico going to default? Are Americans prime for bankruptcy,

David Wilkerson: Global Economic Collapse Begins in Germany

  1. Derivatives – Never before in history have so many financial institutions exposed themselves to so much risk in the form of derivatives, which are financial products that derive all of their value from an underlying asset. Derivatives allow financial institutions to leverage their assets many times over. As a result, many investors hold a claim to the same asset while none of them actually own anything of real value. This approach works great when market values are moving up because profits are multiplied, but it is very dangerous when market values are moving down because losses are multiplied too. Large losses can force even very large banks to go bankrupt.
  2. Debt – Never before in history have there been so many nations in so much debt. Sovereign debt levels have increased significantly among almost all developed nations since the 2008 collapse of the housing market. The enormous debt burden makes it almost impossible to absorb the cost of any unexpected disasters.

EBOLA GOES FROM BAD TO WORSE 5-23-2018

One of the key issues from the previous Ebola outbreak, the one in West Africa during the 2014 outbreak, was the inability of local health authorities to control and implement medical quarantines. The English word quarantine comes from the Italian word for forty, ie quatro. The local authorities in Venice would require any ship coming into port to stay out at sea for forty days. The assumption was, if they were infected with plague, they would all die off during that time. In our modern times, the political correct crowd refuses to impose medical quarantines, with sealed borders, or airplane landing restrictions. The reason being it is “racist.” No, it is called proper medical technique to prevent the spread of disease. I fully expect the same thing to happen this time around.

Further, in addition to the dismal health care systems in your average African country, especially the DRC, the Democratic Republic of Congo, you have the inability to enforce an effective quarantine. Therefore, I am neither surprised, or amazed that medical quarantine has already failed in the Congo city. The link below tells us that already infected people have scattered to the wind, beyond the ability of local health authorities to undertake what is called “skip tracing.” Skip tracing is when you interview, quarantine, or treat not only the person you think, or really is, infected with Ebola, but you hunt down everybody that person came into contact with. Now that infected people are running around in the general population, the chance of further disease spread skyrockets. We are now at that point in the infection cycle.

Ebola patients ESCAPE quarantine in city of 350,000 people

EBOLA patients have escaped quarantine in a city of 350,000 people amid fears the outbreak could be on verge of getting worse.

Three patients escaped from quarantine in the city of Mbandaka in north western Democratic Republic of Congo.

Two of the three have been found dead, while a third patient has been found alive.

Medecins Sans Frontieres’ (MSF) mission in the city confirmed the incident as they work to treat cases of Ebola.

The death toll of the outbreak has reached 27 as health chiefs crackdown on the virus.

World Health Organisation bosses have previously warned spread in the city could mean a repeat of the 2014 outbreak – which killed over 11,000.

“WHO and partners are working together to rapidly scale up the search for all contacts of the confirmed case in the area.

“Controlling a virus once it has reached a large urban area is particularly challenging.

“The last big Ebola outbreak in 2014-15 showed the devastation that can occur when the virus gains a foothold in an urban setting.”

WHO have shipped more than 8,600 vaccines to DRC, in a desperate attempt to prevent the spread of Ebola.

Another 8,000 are expected to arrive in coming days.

Doctors have hailed the latest dose of the vaccine a “paradigm shift” in fighting the disease.

And medical chiefs at WHO have claimed the world is much more prepared than in 2014.

Aid agencies are battling to persuade sceptical residents about the severity of an outbreak that has killed 27 since April.

Some people are refusing medical care and turning to preachers and prayers to chase away the threat.

Pastors at churches have been encouraging people “pray away” the Ebola instead of receiving vaccines.

Ebola is also believed to be a “curse on those who ate stolen meat”.

African health officials have said they were preparing to send anthropologists to the DRC to help with an Ebola vaccination campaign.

Prototype vaccine will first be given to frontline health workers and then to people who have been in contact with Ebola cases.

John Nkengasong, head of Africa Centres for Disease Control said: “If we do not handle communication well, the vaccination programme may suffer.

“So we are also assessing how in the next two weeks or so to deploy anthropologists to support the vaccine efforts.”

EBOLA GOES URBAN IN THE CONGO 5-17-2018

It didn’t take long for the current Ebola disease outbreak in the Congo to spread. It has now spread from the isolated, rural area into an urban area nearby. This takes the disease threat to the next level and significantly increases the chances of further spread of the disease. I’m not prepared to say we are facing a global pandemic, yet. Still, now the Ebola disease has been confirmed in this city, things are getting worse.

https://www.theorganicprepper.com/ebola-urban-explosive-increase/

 

by Daisy Luther

Ebola is back, and in a “new phase.” The deadly hemorrhagic fever is no longer confined to the remote regions of the Congo. On Wednesday, a man was diagnosed in Mbandaka, a city with a population of nearly 1.2 million people in Equateur Province, which is in the northwestern part of the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Ebola has gone urban.

And that means the real crisis is just beginning.

The World Health Organization is worried.

Now Ebola is back in the Congo, and this new outbreak has the World Health Organization very concerned. Initially, the outbreak was in a remote area and the health officials were attempting to “ring-fence” with vaccinations. But now that it has reached the populous Mbandaka, that plan is no longer viable. The other issue is that Mbandaka is a major transportation hub, with routes to the capital city of Kinshasa.

The health ministry reports that  44 cases of Ebola have now been reported, from which 23 people have died. But this case that has been diagnosed in an urban area could change everything.

“The arrival of Ebola in an urban area is very concerning and WHO and partners are working together to rapidly scale up the search for all contacts of the confirmed case in the Mbandaka area,” said Dr. Matshidiso Moeti, WHO Regional Director for Africa. (source)

Peter Salama of the World Health Organization is more candid.

“This is a major development in the outbreak,” he told the BBC. “We have urban Ebola, which is a very different animal from rural Ebola. The potential for an explosive increase in cases is now there.”

Mr Salama, the WHO’s Deputy Director-General of Emergency Preparedness and Response, said Mbandaka’s location on the Congo river, widely used for transportation, raised the prospect of Ebola spreading to surrounding countries such as Congo-Brazzaville and the Central African Republic as well as downstream to Kinshasa, a city of 10 million people.

“This puts a whole different lens on this outbreak and gives us increased urgency to move very quickly into Mbandaka to stop this new first sign of transmission,” he said. (source)

The virus may have gotten to the city when people who had gone to the funeral of an Ebola victim nearby traveled to Mbandaka before realizing one of them was infected.

A quick recap of the outbreak of 2014

Everyone remembers the Ebola outbreak of 2014. It ripped through West Africa for two years, killing over 11,000 people and sickening nearly 30,000. But the reason WE remember it in the United States is that it crept into our country. Shortly after the CDC warned us to prepare for a potential Ebola pandemic, the first case was diagnosed in Dallas, Texas, when a man from West Africa visited the hospital on two occasions, having been turned away the first time as just having “the flu.” The original patient died, and two nurses caring for him caught the potentially deadly virus.

It is honestly shocking that more people didn’t become ill, as one nurse traveled on a plane while sick, and in another incident, a doctor in New York City who had volunteered in Guinea was also diagnosed. All in all, eleven people in the United States were treated for Ebola (that we know of, anyway) and it certainly wasn’t because of the expert handling of the near-crisis. It was pure luck.

There were all sorts of mismanagement. Everything from not requiring a quarantine of travelers returning from the affected area to housing 11 potential cases in a hotel to a ship from Liberia with sick passengers being allowed to dock in New Orleans to the near-disastrous handling of contaminated samples in Dallas, it is an absolute miracle that there was no major outbreak in the US. Will we get this lucky twice?

Should we be worried now?

At this point, we have no reason to be overly concerned if we are not in the DRC, however, it pays to be watchful and prepared. The last time around, it made it to the United States and it was nearly impossible to get supplies by the time it was diagnosed here.

From a preparedness point of view, if an outbreak occurs, social isolation is the number one way to prevent becoming ill. The death rate for someone who contracts Ebola is 50%. Ebola is the potential pandemic that really keeps me up at night. It’s scary stuff. This article explains how a localized outbreak can turn into a pandemic.

Smart people will check their supplies to be certain they’re prepared for the possibility of hunkering down for a couple of months or more, that they have personal protective equipment on hand. To learn more about preparing for a pandemic, read this article and get this book. Remember that when the official government warning goes out, it’s going to be too late to acquire the things you need.

EBOLA SPREADS IN THE CONGO 5-15-2015

It looks like the outbreak of Ebola in the Congo is now starting to spread out over the last month or so. Although Ebola is a bodily fluids vector spreading disease, and not airborne, which means it is relatively hard to catch, this outbreak bears watching closely.

WHO Prepares For “Worst Case” As Congo Ebola Outbreak Spreads

The WHO has tallied 32 suspected or confirmed cases in the northwestern area of Bikoro, on the shores of Lake Tumbathe near the border with the Republic of Congo, including 18 deaths, between April 4 and May 9.

The outbreak, declared by the DRC health ministry on Tuesday, is the DRC’s ninth known outbreak of Ebola since 1976, when the deadly viral disease was first identified in then-Zaire by a Belgian-led team.

Scientists are greatly concerned that this outbreak in the remote Bikoro region will travel 175 miles to the city of Mbandaka – the capital of Equateur province and home to around 1.2 million residents.

What’s worrisome is that the most recent WHO update says that there are two probably cases at Wangata – which is very close to Mbandaka.

Peter Salma, head of emergency response at the World Health Organization (WHO) said last week: “If we see a town of that size infected with Ebola, then we are going to have a major urban outbreak,” adding “We are very concerned, and we are planning for all scenarios, including the worst-case scenario.”

The WHO is planning to send up to 40 specialists to the affected area over the next week or so, while Salma adds that the UN hopes to have a mobile lab up and running this weekend, similar to the one set up by the WHO.

The WHO and World Food Programme are also working to set up an ‘air-bridge’ to help bring in supplies, however, only helicopters can be used until an airfield is cleared to allow larger planes to land, Mr Salama added.

The health body has released £738,000 ($1m) from its Contingency Fund for Emergencies to support response activities for the next three months. -Daily Mail

This marks the country’s ninth epidemic since the ebola virus was identified in 1976. When a small outbreak hit the DRC last year, eight people were infected and four died. In 2014, 66 were infected out of which 49 died – a 74% fatality rate. In the 2002-2003 outbreak, 90% of those infected died. That said, on average the disease kills around half of those who contract it.

Ebola, a haemorrhagic fever, killed at least 11,000 across the world after it decimated West Africa and spread rapidly over the space of two years.

The pandemic was officially declared over back in January 2016, when Liberia was announced to be Ebola-free by the WHO.

The country, rocked by back-to-back civil wars that ended in 2003, was hit the hardest by the fever, with 40 per cent of the deaths having occurred there.

Sierra Leone reported the highest number of Ebola cases, with nearly of all those infected having been residents of the nation. -Daily Mail
Experts say the DRC’s vast, remote terrain provides an advantage, as outbreaks often remain localized and easy to isolate. Bikoro, however, is not far from the Congo river – an essential waterway used for transport and commerce. Downstream lies Kinshasa and Brazzaville – the DRC’s capital. The two cities are home to a combined 12 million people.

As such, neighboring countries are on high alert. Officials in Nigeria, Guinea and Gambia have incresaed screening measures along their airports and borders, measures which helped contain the virus during the West African epidemic that began in 2013.

Angola, Zambia, Tanzania, Uganda, South Sudan, Central African Republic, Rwanda, Burundi and the Republic of Congo – which border the DRC – have all been alerted.

While Kenya, which does not border the country, has issued warnings over the possible spread of Ebola.

Thermal guns to detect anyone with a fever have been put in place along its border with Uganda and at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.

Concerned health officials in Nigeria, which also does not border the DRC, have put similar measures in place to keep its population safe. -Daily Mail

Scientists believe Ebola is most often passed to humans by fruit bats, however porcupines, gorillas, antelope and chimpanzees could also be carriers. It is transmitted between humans through blood, secretions and other bodily fluids (and surfaces) of those infected.

There is currently no “proven” treatment for Ebola, however dozens of experimental drugs exist – including a vaccine called rVSV-ZEBOV, which has reportedly protected nearly 6,000 people.

HERE WE GO! 5-8-2018

Um, well gang it’s been nice knowing ya all!

Seriously, we need the Alfaman, “Black Helicopters over DC report.”

Second, my opinion is war between Iran/Hezzbollah/HAMAS and Israel is now IMMINENT, AS IN THE NEXT 24 TO 72 HOURS.

Trump has now fully gone to the dark side, and now can’t recover. Bolton et al are in full control and we are going to war. Further, now that the corrupt “Bibi,” who is now doing a full “wag the dog,” scenario, to avoid being thrown in jail for corruption, as well as having bypassed the Knesset and been given total power to unleash the dogs of war, a regional middle east war, at the bare minimum, is now upon us.

Honestly, I was in the US Army back in October of 1973, at Fort Sam Houston, San Antonio, Texas being trained as a medic. Back then, I was wondering if I was going to be loaded onto a C-130 and end up at Tel Aviv airport.

Forces have now been unleashed, passions raised that will be a true end of the world as we know it scenario. For example, if Israel really does take out Iran’s oil and container ports, the impact on oil prices will be immediate and devastating. Combined with the ongoing missile strikes from Yemen, by the Iranian proxy Houthi, on Saudi Arabia’s oil facilities it will be even worse than the 1973 oil crisis.

I highly suggest you all fill up your car’s gas tanks immediately.

It won’t be long now, gang. Israel, well Israel is simply too arrogant at this point to understand the implications of what a war with Iran will mean. Iran has long understood asymetrical warfare techniques, which means the US is facing sleeper cell attacks here in CONUS.

We know Hezzbollah has been here in CONUS for the last several decades. We know that for a fact.

Russia is also a factor here. Putin has had about all he is going to take, so we may also be looking at a direct confrontation between the US and Russia, as well as Russia and Israel.

At any rate, I have been in the game for over 20 years now. It is all coming down now. Do not pass go; do not collect $200. The game is on, and I just hope the chaos won’t be total.

WHY WE PREPARE FOR TSHTF SCENARIOS 3-24-2018

When people look at the current global situation, they ask two questions: what should I expect, and what should I do? So, here are some thoughts on the subject, and some suggestions I found.

Here is the link to what we can/should expect in any fecal material hitting the rotating blade situation.

 As ‘Final Blocks Of Tyranny’ Are Cemented Into Place, Creepy Feeling Of Impending Doom Spreads To ‘Deep State’

– What Do They Know We Don’t Know? Prepare Now For TEOTWAWKI Or Forever Hold Your Peace

By Stefan Stanford – All News Pipeline – Live Free Or Die

Here is what to expect.

With the Examiner story showing that a ‘mass awakening’ to impending disaster is happening at least with those who are paying attention in Washington DC, Survival Dan asks a great question in his new story: “What will the end be like for me if I don’t prepare?”

With that question partially answered in what we’re now witnessing in the total collapse of socialist Venezuela where liberal policies of mass destruction have led a trail of death and starvation across their country, think about how your life would be with:

1. No clean water coming out of the faucets to drink.
2. No hot or cold water to shower, bathe with or wash your hands.
3. No washing machines or dishwashers to clean your clothes or dirty dishes.
4. No flushing toilets.
5. No heat or air conditioning, not even fans.
6. No light at night.
7. No grocery stores or home-delivered food, no restaurants, no food period.
8. No trash pick up of waste that will mound up and collect strong diseases.
9. No medications, especially antibiotics, or simply over the counter remedies either.
10. No communications; no internet, no TV, no radio, no clue what is going on.

I hope these videos give you some ideas of what you need to do.

MADAGASCAR PLAGUE DEATHS FIVE TIMES WHAT WHO SAYS THEY ARE. 11-26-2017

A quick note. I have dyslexia from time to time, which is why I missed the comma in the following sentence. “So far, since October 4, 907 people have died from the plague.” Personally, I would have had it as “So far, since October 4th, 907 people have died from the plague.” At any rate, this is confirmation my original theory that you could multiply both the “official” dead and infected by a factor of between three and five was true. It is also confirmation the situation on Madagascar is significantly worse than “they” are telling us. Again, apologies for my reading error.

The following article, from Britain’s Mirror, says that the current number of deaths from the Black Plague bacteria are nearly 1,000. This is since October 4th, and the total of infected people is nearly 13,000 people. The official WHO totals show 200 dead, and 2,000 infected. The true number of dead, assuming the Mirror is giving accurate information, is a staggering 5 times what WHO says they are. I have long said that based on how WHO handled the SARS, MERS and Ebola disease outbreaks, we can be certain they are LYING to us, just like they have done before. I will admit to be stunned at the extent of the WHO lies, which indicate the real situation on Madagascar is much, much worse than even I thought it was. I simply refuse to believe that any media source would use the 1,000 dead, and 13,000 infected numbers without a verified, 100 percent reliable source for figures that effectively call the World Health Organization a liar publicly. The risk of a lawsuit is simply too great to use a number of dead that is 5 times the official WHO numbers. If the numbers weren’t credible, then WHO would have the Mirror for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
