EBOLA FEARMONGERING UNJUSTIFIED

Fear Everything

There have been a number of things I’ve seen online today about the anomalies and the true threat—or lack thereof—of Ebola that I wanted to share.  First, this comment from Infowars’ Paul Joseph Watson:

Indeed, that is amazing.  The two people wearing protective suits Watson is presumably referring to: Nina Pham, the Dallas nurse, and Teresa Romero Ramos, the Spanish nurse.  According to the Washington Post (“Second Ebola case confirmed. Texas health worker wore ‘full’ protective gear” October 12, 2014)”:

[Pham] treated Duncan, the Ebola patient, after his second visit to the emergency room, on Sept. 28, and was “following full CDC precautions,” including wearing a gown, gloves, a mask and a protective face shield.

However, that story has now shifted a bit with the revelation that a second Dallas nurse that also cared for Thomas Eric Duncan, has now been diagnosed with Ebola.  Her name is Amber Vinson, and according to the AP (“Nurses Treated Ebola Patient Thomas Eric Duncan Without Proper Protective Gear, Group Says” October 15, 2014):

DALLAS (AP) — A Liberian Ebola patient was left in an open area of a Dallas emergency room for hours, and nurses treating him worked without proper protective gear and faced constantly changing protocols, according to a statement released by the nation’s largest nurses’ union.

Among those nurses was Nina Pham, 26, who has been hospitalized since Friday after catching Ebola while caring for Thomas Eric Duncan, the first person diagnosed with the virus in the U.S. He died last week.

 

And Duncan’s family that lived with him?  They’re not showing any symptoms, according to this article (“Family that lived with Texas Ebola victim showing no symptoms, mayor says” foxnews.com, October 14, 2014):

The family who shared an apartment with a Liberian man who died of Ebola in Texas is showing no signs of illness, while the dog of a nurse who contracted the deadly virus is healthy and being cared for, Dallas’s mayor said on Tuesday.

Thomas Eric Duncan’s girlfriend, her 13-year-old son and two nephews in their 20s had been living with Duncan before he was admitted to a Dallas hospital on Sept. 28.

So far no signs of the virus in any of them,” Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings said on CNN. “We check them twice a day, and everybody’s healthy.”

Very curious, yes?  Maybe Ebola isn’t the end of the world after all.  After all, even “Patient Zero’s” family didn’t get it!  With that in mind, consider this comment from “So What” at Zero Hedge:

Let’s put this Ebola outbreak into perspective.

Facts:
1)The populations of Liberia, Guinea, Sierra Leone are respectively 4.3 millions, 11.75 millions, 6.1 millions. Total combined population is roughly: 22.15 millions.

2)In these three countries where most of the Ebola victims have been identified, 8000 have been diagnosed and 4500 have died.

3)The populations of these three countries live in densely populated area, and lack adequate sewage systems in their neighborhood. Their healthcare systems are primitive at best. Their populations are exposed to infected corpses lying in street, infected family members and neighbors.

Analysis:

1)Even so we see a tiny fraction of .036% of the population getting infected and half of that dead over an 11 months outbreak.

2)So even living in these poor country, your chance of dying from Ebola is minuscule in an 11 months period.

3)With superior healthcare system, advanced sewage system in the US and Europe, the rate of infection and death should be even lower.

Ebola doesn’t look so fearsome after facts are examined, is it?

The real threat is the suspension of laws, civil rights, and grabbing of power by scaring the bejesus out of the population. Everyone should be wary of this fear mongering. The real fear should be directed at The Power That Be.

Possible scenarios using Ebola fear mongering:

1)Crash market and bankers steal more money.

2)Escalate Syrian war.

3)Pass laws to clamp down internet.

4)Elect a traitor, globalist puppet into as president of USSA.

Please copy and post this as many times as possible.

 

After all, the conventional wisdom is that American health care is the best in the world.  Certainly it’s leaps and bounds better than the health care system of West Africa.  If that’s true, what are we so worried about?    Rather, what are they trying to make us so worried about.

I agree with Zero Hedge’s “So What”—the best thing to do is to watch the hand the government doesn’t want us to watch, i.e., the hand that is involved in the prestidigitation, not the one holding up the Ebola panic for everyone to see.  But fear shouldn’t be our first option, because fear shuts off the critical mind (which is the whole point, of course):

“Fear is not real. The only place that fear can exist is in our thoughts of the future. It is a product of our imagination, causing us to fear things that do not at present and may not ever exist. That is near insanity. Do not misunderstand me–danger is very real but fear is a choice. We are all telling ourselves a story.”
