EBOLA A HOAX? NOT SO FAST

Claims were flying all over the net this week about how “Ebola is a hoax” but the evidence in the largely email campaign was mislabeled. It confused evidence of government coverup of the bio lab source of the disease with the word “hoax,” which implies “didn’t really happen.” Here are the claims of a Liberian doctor documenting US involvement in the spread of Ebola, including other evidence of US government spreading of diseases for bioweapon purposes. Timothy Alexander Guzman of Silent Crow News Has the story:

Dr. Cyril Broderick, A Liberian scientist and a former professor of Plant Pathology at the University of Liberia’s College of Agriculture and Forestry says the West, particularly the U.S. is responsible for the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. Dr. Broderick claims the following in an exclusive article published in the Daily Observer based in Monrovia, Liberia. He wrote the following:

The US Department of Defense (DoD) funding Ebola trials on humans, trials which started just weeks before the Ebola outbreak in Guinea and Sierra Leone. The reports continue and state that the DoD gave a contract worth $140 million dollars to Tekmira, a Canadian pharmaceutical company, to conduct Ebola research. This research work involved injecting and infusing healthy humans with the deadly Ebola virus. Hence, the DoD is listed as a collaborator in a “First in Human” Ebola clinical trial (NCT02041715), which started in January 2014 shortly before an Ebola epidemic was declared in West Africa in March[.]

Dr. Broderick claims that the U.S. government has a research laboratory located in a town called Kenema in Sierra Leone that studies what he calls “viral fever bioterrorism”, It is also the town where he acknowledges that [it] is the “epicentre of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa… It is most disturbing that the U. S. Government has been operating a viral hemorrhagic fever bioterrorism research laboratory in Sierra Leone. Are there others?”

Mr. Broderick’s claims are disturbing. But is there historical evidence of the US using diseases for bioweapons or experimenting on humans during their development? There is:

The U.S. government has been experimenting with deadly diseases on human beings for a long time because history tells us so. One example is Guatemala. Between 1946 and 1948, the United States government under President Harry S. Truman in collaboration with Guatemalan President Juan José Arévalo and his health officials deliberately infected more than 1500 soldiers, prostitutes, prisoners and even mental patients with syphilis and other sexually transmitted diseases such as gonorrhea and chancroid (a bacterial sexual infection) out of more than 5500 Guatemalan people who participated in the experiments. The worst part of it is that none of the test subjects infected with the diseases [ever] gave informed consent. The Boston Globe published the discovery made by Medical historian and professor at Wellesley College, Susan M. Reverby in 2010 called ‘Wellesley professor unearths a horror: Syphilis experiments in Guatemala.’ It stated how she came across her discovery:

Picking through musty files in a Pennsylvania archive, a Wellesley College professor made a heart-stopping discovery: US government scientists in the 1940s deliberately infected hundreds of Guatemalans with syphilis and gonorrhea in experiments conducted without the subjects’ permission. Medical historian Susan M. Reverby happened upon the documents four or five years ago while researching the infamous Tuskegee syphilis study and later shared her findings with US government officials.

The unethical research was not publicly disclosed until yesterday, when President Obama and two Cabinet secretaries apologized to Guatemala’s government and people and pledged to never repeat the mistakes of the past — an era when it was not uncommon for doctors to experiment on patients without their consent.

Meanwhile, the Obama administration continues its campaign to contain the disease in the US. I do not think the government intends this relatively hard-to-spread form of Ebola to become a pandemic—but perhaps to spread its infection enough among Africans so as to harvest a mutant form of the virus that might become more easily infectious.

Despite already having an Assistant Secretary of NIH specifically tasked to deal with pandemics, CNN reports that Obama has “appointed a former lobbyist and political insider as his ‘Ebola Czar.’” But Ron Klain, the lobbyist, has no medical credentials or experience,. He merely supervised the disbursement of Obama’s stimulus package several years ago.

Meanwhile, there’s a breaking story by Alex Jones on infowars.com about evidence of other cases of Ebola in the US that are being hidden or mislabeled as another fever type disease like Malaria:

A medical professional has exclusively revealed to Infowars that health authorities are covering up Ebola cases in the United States and disappearing patients in an effort to avoid hysteria.

James Lawrenzi, DO, who has two clinics in Garden City and Archie, Missouri, appeared on the Alex Jones Show today to warn that the true scale of the situation was being deliberately downplayed.

Lawrenzi said that shortly after the arrival of patient zero – Thomas Eric Duncan – in the United States, he was told by a doctor at Truman Lakewood Medical Center in Kansas City they they had taken in an Ebola patient who had a high fever and was bleeding out of all his orifices having recently returned from West Africa.

The following day, Lawrenzi was told by the doctor that the patient had “disappeared” against medical advice, but that he wouldn’t have been able to leave on his own given his medical condition.

The day after the patient disappeared, a meeting was called for anyone who had contact with the patient. Doctors and other medical workers were told that the patient had malaria.

 A second possible Ebola patient was then admitted to Research Medical Center in Kansas City the following day but also quickly “disappeared,” with hospital bosses claiming he had typhoid, according to Lawrenzi.

    Hoax? I believe you’ll find that Ebola is real and. it Kills!
    So far, it seems no one – not even doctors honor a voluntary self imposed 21 day quarantine, that’s really scary!
    And it’s even more scary but, maybe New York will soon test this Ebola research conclusion!

    Ebola can go airborne but hasn’t in West Africa because it’s too warm, researchers conclude.

    Ebola a Hoax! Whoever believes that should jump on a plane go to Liberia and go hug and kiss all the actors in the hospitals there! If after 21 days they come back and proclaim Ebola is a hoax – I might start listening to their BS.
    The New York Doctor should have quarantined himself for 21 days! But, it seems no one – not even doctors honor a voluntary self imposed 21 day quarantine, that’s really scary!
    Thanks to Mr. Barrack Obama for freely issuing a U.S. Visa to, and welcoming Liberian Mr. Thomas Eric Duncan Ebola to the USA with open arms! And, for keeping the door wide open for other West Africans to come on over with Ebola!

    Remember, they can not legally enter the USA without a Visa!

    The 1918 Flu Virus Pandemic infected over 500 million people across the world, including the USA, remote Pacific islands and the Arctic, and killed 50 to 100 million of them, that’s a 10 to 20 percent death rate.
    A large factor in the worldwide occurrence of this flu was increased travel. Modern transportation systems made it easier for soldiers, sailors, and civilian travelers to spread the disease.
    Now we have Jumbo Jets and the Fast Spreading Ebola Virus… With a 50 to 70 percent death rate!
