A few things to share. The CDC itself asked for a study. That study suggested that if things remain the same, then we could see 550,000 Ebola cases in Liberia and Sierra Leone or 1.4 million cases if corrected for what we assume the under-reporting is accurate by JAN2015, less than five months. Basically this is based on Ebola continuing to double every 20 days. Each Ebola patient appears to be infecting 2 other people before they die. 65% of people who get this strain of Ebola die. The study admits that “We do not have appropriate data to say specifically why…” Ebola is doubling every 20 days. The study is also honest enough to say they do not know why this outbreak of Ebola seem so different.
“At this point there is zero risk of transmission on the flight,” lied Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Several important scientists who have studied Ebola for a long time believe that it may be easier to transmit than the CDC is telling the American people. Dr. C.J. Peters, who battled a 1989 outbreak of the virus among research monkeys housed in Virginia and who later led the CDC’s most far-reaching study of Ebola’s transmissibility in humans, said he would not rule out the possibility that it spreads through the air in tight quarters. “We just don’t have the data to exclude it,” said Peters, who continues to research viral diseases at the University of Texas in Galveston. Dr. Philip K. Russell, a virologist who oversaw Ebola research while heading the U.S. Army’s Medical Research and Development Command, and who later led the government’s massive stockpiling of smallpox vaccine after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, also said much was still to be learned. “Being dogmatic is, I think, ill-advised, because there are too many unknowns here.” “I see the reasons to dampen down public fears,” Russell said. “But scientifically, we’re in the middle of the first experiment of multiple, serial passages of Ebola virus in man…. God knows what this virus is going to look like. I don’t.” Let me translate that for you. I understand why the CDC is lying to the American people (to keep them calm) but in truth, we have no idea. Got it? And you are correct, God does know.
What the government is doing? It is doing effectively nothing. Screening at the outbound airports in the three most impacted countries of Liberia (2,069 deaths), Sierra Leone (623 deaths) and Guinea (739 deaths) is meaningless. They take their temperature and hand them a form to answer. Everyone knows to take some ibuprofen to temporarily lower your fever. And what the dirt poor Africans are hearing is what the sister of Thomas Eric Duncan, who fled Liberia seeking help after lying on the form said “…no one in America is dying from Ebola.” And thus guess what everyone who can afford a ticket is going to try to do? The screening they are asking untrained customs and border people to conduct is equally meaningless. Our own Custom officers say “they are not ready” have no training and little equipment. First it is “after the fact” of potentially infecting everyone you just flew with, and second, take another ibuprofen, lie on the form and you are on your way. President Obama and his administration knows this is meaningless, but if you move your mouth and hands around a lot you know our sheeple neighbors will loose focus, pick up their micro-brew beer, drop another Prozac and go back to fantasy football.
The Liberia Council of Churches (LCC) has issued a statement reading: ‘Liberians have to pray and seek God’s forgiveness over the corruption and immoral acts that continue to penetrate our society. As Christians, we must repent and seek God’s forgiveness.’ And we few American Christians pray with you, for we know that the Lord’s wrath will come to us also.
The military is being deployed without adequate equipment. The reason the military is being deployed is twofold. One is to provide security; the other is to build facilities to help these people. Those facilities will not be functional until sometime in NOV2014. However how do you “provide security” without coming into contact with the most desperate? Also I would like to know the Rules of Engagement (ROE) for these troops. When can they protect themselves? Also I would like to know what will the containment procedures are for when these poor souls return. The men and women of the U.S. military will deploy to this God-awful place because this nation order it. Once again, we all need get on our knees and ask the Lord for forgiveness for electing this man. We all are responsible. He now gets to order American forces, with minimal training, and no protection to the heart of the pestilence storm.
And last the major thing I am tracking. If 500,000 to one million people are infected in Africa, this is very bad. If any significant minority of these cases happens in Central America, we have a serious problem. Marine Corps Gen. John F. Kelly, the commander of the U.S. Southern Command told an audience at the National Defense University in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday that, if the disease reaches Central America, “it’s literally, ‘Katie bar the door,’ and there will be mass migration into the United States.” He also said with certainty that “there is no way we can keep Ebola [contained] in West Africa.” He is right, and I don’t think this has received enough coverage. If Ebola breaks out in Mexico City, first you will have the hundreds of thousands (perhaps millions) of American citizens who live in Mexico returning just as many of them did during the Swine Flu. Next you will have the Mexicans with legal visas fleeing their nation. And then last? You will have even those who cannot legally come here, fleeing. It all depends on how bad it gets. And when you get up on your high horse, realize that if had a situation that was causing our country to become uninhabitable we would immediately flee, and many people would flee south. For you patriots living in the South East, if this thing breaks out in Mexico or Central America, expect to find a couple of families on your yard the next day. Talk about the golden horde.
My needle is still green. You may ask why? The reason is that this is all possible, maybe even likely but none of it has happened yet. There is an excellent chance that the inept actions taken by treating this at the source may greatly reduce the spread. If that happens, it will not be 500,000 by JAN2015, but many, many less. Another example to reduce issues is the fact that Mexico and Liberia do not do a lot of business together. It may not spread there at all. The vast majority of the citizens of Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea may just do the right thing and “die in place” instead of infecting everyone for a chance at better care. However I still understand that we are not getting clear, concise and accurate information from our government. Thus I am buying supplies, mask, suites, and gloves. I am also buying thick trash bags, duck tape and books to be able to setup my own isolation room in our house. Note: I have placed orders for all of this equipment over 10 days ago, and the vast majority has not arrived. Normally this is delivered within 3 days. Now it is over 10 day wait. Plan accordingly! For patriots that live in the South West specifically the border states of California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas I would strongly recommend having an exit plan. The only thing I can think of for my family since our house is not started is living out of a trailer, tents and our trucks on our property until this burns itself out.
Long live Christ the King and may His will be done.
