Fox Reporter Shepard Smith says “You should have no concerns about Ebola at all, none, I promise”

This is the height of irresponsible reporting. I used to enjoy watching Shepard Smith on Fox News. I would watch his refreshing take on the news with much enthusiasm.

Now? Not so much.

He came across as that strict parent scolding his children, like Baghdad Bob protecting Hussein, Joseph Goebels shielding Hitler from bad press or a teacher scolding that parent who dares ask questions. He has lost me and my only advice would be stick to reporting. We don’t need a mainstream media grandpaw.

The people of this great country can do their own thinking. We dont need you to further propagate the media deception machine. It is functioning very inefficiently on its own.

The good people on the front lines are very concerned about the definite Ebola outbreak going on in the USA as well as many countries throughout the world.

We don’t need to further assist in the manipulation of people’s minds using mass media as the vehicle.

In case you missed the diatribe by Shepherd Smith of Fox News fame please watch the you tube video below. (Link provided)

I’m sure you are now one spasm from losing your lunch and are wondering what or who in the world gave him the moral authority to make a judgement call from a news booth at Fox Headquarters. Shepherd, you really need to get out more and when you do I’m sure you will don your protective gear. Meanwhile, nurses and healthcare workers are dying using poor equipment inside an outdated system with the mouth piece Frieden at the CDC heading up the circus.

Shepard, you are part of the problem. If the MSM were doing their job the Internet bloggers and the like would be getting no attention at all and millions would not be relying on the not so main stream media to get their news. We the people view the MSM as the shield for an insanely irresponsible and dictatorial president and his administrative agenda. 

Your rant seems to again put an exclamation point on why millions are scurrying to the Internet for news they will not get when the turn on the TV.

Stop with your pandering and treating your audience like children. You are terribly misinformed and your passive attitude and naïveté shows millions your ignorance while the world goes to hell in a hand basket. Because of reporters like you Americas knowledge base is dwindling and your lazy reporting could cause much harm to Americans by encouraging many in the wake of this scourge to not worry, at all, in other words sleep.

During Smiths rant he said a few things that equate to an alcoholic refusing he has a drinking problem. 

In 3 minutes he spewed basically all
of his knowledge on Ebola and it’s reach into America leaving the info starved ravishing for food.

“You should have no concerns about Ebola at all. None. I promise,” stated Smith. 

He continues, “Do not listen to the hysterical voices on the radio and the television or read the fear-provoking words online. The people who say and write hysterical things are being very irresponsible.”

“We do not have an outbreak of Ebola in the United States. Nowhere.”

“We do have two healthcare workers who contracted the disease from a dying man. They are isolated.”

“There is no information to suggest that the virus has spread to anyone in the general population in America. Not one person in the general population in the United States.”

And then the Fox Gulag made it political “With midterm elections coming, the party in charge needs to appear to be effectively leading. The party out of power needs to show that there is a lack of leadership,” Smith smugly quipped.

If it were all this simple, Mr Smith as he continues to spew his propaganda.

“I report to you with certainty this afternoon that being afraid at all is the wrong thing to do.” 

“He called media-stoked Ebola panic “counterproductive”, saying that it “lacks basis in fact or reason.”

He acknowledged that Ebola is a serious problem in West Africa, as well as for the victims and their families in Texas, but he pleaded with media outlets to stop fear-mongering about Ebola in the U.S.”

“Someday there may be a real panic. Someday, something may start spreading that they can’t control. And then, do you know what we’re gonna have to do? We’re gonna have to relax and listen to leaders. We’re not gonna panic when we’re supposed to and we’re certainly not gonna panic now. We have to stop it.”

Really Shepard? No worries? Your more than likely only doing what you are told. We the People realize there is a bigger agenda pushing your pressed speech. That doesn’t make it less harmful, but we can gain empathy for your situation as you purvey you masterful diatribe.

No concerns at all about EBOLA? 
We are in the midst of possibly the worst outbreak in Ebolas near 40 year history. Since March 2014 Ebola is on the move. It has gone from Monrovia and surrounding area to the world in less than 6 months. It is no longer in Africa alone where it stayed for many years. We have incompetents running the show and our hospitals are not prepared to take care of the onslaught.

We have a CDC Director saying Ebola is not airborne and all other evidence suggests otherwise. Its spread with a sneeze, on a bus or plane, as far as im concerned that pretty darn airborne to me. This is one way the flu is spread.

We still have open flights to the USA and the CDCs Director Frieden says shutting down flights would make the spread worse.

We have a Doctor in charge of the CDC who does not know his own policies to deal with Ebola and it’s spread. In fact, we have no Surgeon General and not a single competent person in charge to lead the charge against this outbreak. We are living in a world where the only screening we are doing is pointing a thermometer at someones head. A properly placed Tylenol could yield that screening process ineffective. 13 percent of those with Ebola do not run a fever above the accepted range. That number also changes daily. We are still allowing 150 flights a day into the US from Africa, unchecked.

We have a CDC director whose only response to the outbreak is to blame the nurse for “breeching protocol” instead of assuring she has adequate equipment.

Our elected leaders are asleep at the wheel and patients will continue to enter our healthcare facilities and we continue to be unprotected. Allow us little people to sound the alarm on our much ignored plight. From you vantage point, I’m sure it’s rosy, from ours it’s pretty frightening.

We have caregivers facing death daily and you from your perch are ordering Americans not to worry. And your only response is at least weve not had an outbreak outside the hospital. Hello Shepard! The alarm is sounding for those in the hospital and their families. Nurse and other healthcare workers are not expendable, nor their lives any less important.

The World Health Organization states that 10,000 a week will be affected and possibly 500,000 by years end. That’s pretty good reason to worry. I don’t plan to worry after thousands die. Now is the time to be aggressive, mounting the type response to halt it’s progression.

This Ebola strand has jumped across the waters that divide us and has killed more in the last 6 months than it has in nearly 40 years. Some even say it was the result of a failed clinical trial and the introduction of an unplanned 5th cohort. No worries? Please.

You smugly say and I paraphrase for emphasis, yeah sure only two nurses have contracted Ebola. Unless you have been there please don’t lessen the job we do. One death is to many, one exposure and or contraction of Ebola is too many.

Mr Smith, we are not protected. God forbid you come to the hospital with your bowel oozing blood and your insides melting who do you think will be there to care for you. Only 2 nurses?

Without awareness and information these nurses who are facing death to wipe your butt will not get the equipment they need. If we all took your advice toward this disease we would be exposed to disease with no knowledge and heightened awareness.

We see everyone telling us we have adequate gear and the CDC scientists and Doctors enter the rooms in full protective respiratory and contact gear. Miles away from the CDCs best equipment and where our best is to wear ineffective gear with our butts hanging out and our skin exposed.

Where is the mixed message?  Why are you not concerned? Let’s put you on the front line with the equipment we have and I’ll show you a talking head that will be a no show.

We have the CDC allowing quarantined Nurses to travel across the country because “she didn’t have a fever!” she called them and they gave her permission exposing 900 people on hers and other flights made before the airline stopped the flight.

I could go on and on but what’s the worry?

Shepherd Smith two last words for you, shut up!  

Dang brother! You stink of cover up! Dont be a part of the problem! Join the solution. Wanna help some people? Help draw attention to the inadequacies of an unhealthy situation inside the hospitals you slight. We have enough people distorting the media for their personal gain. Don’t be that one who listens to the radical agenda with it’s own talking points.

Dave the chatter for another agenda. America us needing an assist and you aren’t doing it.

3 million Ebola vaccines have been produced by Crucell, stockpiled since 2003

3 million Ebola vaccines have been produced by Crucell, stockpiled since 2003

10/26/2014
0832 am

The United States has had a vaccine for Ebola for nearly 11 years. The 3 million vaccines mass produced are a result of funding for Project Bioshield. 

The Ebola vaccines have been approved,tested in humans and ready to go but are being stockpiled in some military vault out of the publics reach.

CRUCELL labs has had the contract for many years to develop the vaccines. They delivered on their pact with the US Government to develop a vaccine. The vaccine is available.

The information below, nearly all of it, was pulled from the websites of CRUCELL and other governmental agencies.

To see this information so readily available and not reported simply amazes me. Then yet again, I am of the opinion that many things are left unsaid by our MSM, mainstream media,for a purpose.

Take a look at this information provided to you by CRUCELL the producer of the Ebola vaccines. This information is directly from the links provided. I have provided some text in parentheses.

In 2005, “Crucell is (has) developing an Ebola vaccine in collaboration with the Vaccine Research Center (VRC) of the NIH National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). It has been shown to completely protect monkeys against the virus with a single dose of the vaccine.
Under the terms of the agreement with VRC, Crucell has an option for exclusive worldwide commercialization rights to the Ebola vaccine.”

“Crucell’s Ebola vaccine entered Phase I clinical trials in Q3 2006.  Two groups of 16 volunteers were enrolled and vaccinated. “

“The study showed safety and immunogenicity at the doses evaluated.”

“In October 2008, Crucell secured a NIAID/NIH award to advance the development of Ebola and Marburg vaccines, with the ultimate aim of developing a multivalent filovirus vaccine.”

“The award provides funding of up to $30 million, with additional options, worth a further $40 million.”

“Development rationale:
To date, numerous attempts to PROTECT against Ebola infection using a variety of strategies have failed.”

“However, in 2003 a National Institutes of Health (NIH) study published in Nature demonstrated that a SINGLE DOSE of a recombinant vaccine provided solid protection against an otherwise deadly infection in animal models. Based on these results, we DECIDED TO DEVELOP an Ebola vaccine using the same approach.(For humans)”

“Furthermore, the Ebola virus is on the US government’s Category “A” list of bioterror agents.” 

“In 2003 the US government announced that, once available, an Ebola vaccine may be STOCKPILED as part of its preparation for bio-terror attacks under Project Bioshield.”

“The Bioshield Act was enacted in July 2004, with a total appropriation of US$ 5.6 billion across all programs.”

“Development status:
In 2002, we entered into a Collaborative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the VRC of the NIH to develop jointly, test and manufacture an adenovirus-based Ebola vaccine. “

“Under the terms of the agreement, we have an option for exclusive worldwide commercialization rights to the Ebola vaccine resulting from this collaboration.” 

“In August 2002, the CRADA was extended to cover vaccines against Marburg and Lassa infections. (Ebola-Z, Marburg and Lassa hemmorhagic fevers are the viruses responsible for destroying West Africa and now the US.)”

“In experiments conducted in 2004 by the VRC together with the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID), our vaccine candidate confirmed single-dose protection of monkeys against Ebola. Our results are distinct from the earlier trials in that our vaccine is based on PER.C6® cells, making it SUITABLE for large-scale manufacturing.”

“In 2005, we extended the CRADA with the VRC (Vaccine Research Center) of the NIH to develop and produce vaccines against Ebola, Marburg and Lassa infections.”

“Crucell was also granted an exclusive license to patents owned by the NIH to develop and commercialize vaccines against Ebola. “

“Furthermore, Crucell signed a contract of up to €21.4 million (27 million US dollars)  with the NIH to produce Ebola vaccines. (In 2005, need I remind you)”

“Crucell’s Ebola vaccine entered Phase I studies in Q3 2006.” 

“For this randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study, two groups of 16 healthy volunteers were enrolled and vaccinated. The study showed safety SHOWED SAFETYand IMMUNOGENICITY at the doses evaluated.”

“Based on these results, a second Phase I study is anticipated (was done). This will use alternative multivalent adenovirus vectors that are able to bypass pre-existing immunity against the more commonly used adenovirus serotype 5 (Ad5).”

Look for your self at the link below! It’s evidently no big secret, just underreported!

Here is another offering of information about the development and production of an Ebola vaccine.

Crucell Lands EUR21M NIH (National Institute of Health) Contract To Produce Ebola Virus Vaccine (2005)

According to Cormac Sheridan, BioWorld International Correspondent: “Crucell NV gained what Chief Financial Officer Leonard Kruimer described as a larger-than-expected contract from the Vaccine Research Center at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, part of the National Institutes of Health.”

“The contract is for manufacturing 10 clinical-grade batches of Ebola virus vaccine for use in Phase I and Phase II studies. The full value of the contract, which is set for about two and a half years, stands at €21.4 million (US$27.9 million)” (This amount backs up previous links)

“The vaccine is being developed (in 2005) under a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement between Crucell and the NIH, which also includes provisions for the development of vaccines against two other viruses that cause hemorrhagic infection, Marburg and Lassa.”

“The program is due to move into the clinic in the fourth quarter. Depending on the outcome of the initial studies, the NIH, of Bethesda, Md., might decide not to proceed with all 10 trials, Kruimer said.”

“Then you do not get all the revenues from this contract, but you have a product,” he said. The vaccine, which Crucell, of Leiden, the Netherlands, will produce using its PER.C6 human cell culture system, will not be eligible for full FDA approval but will be available under U.S. biopreparedness plans for administration to key personnel, including the military, government officials and health care workers, IN THE EVENT OF AN OUTBREAK!

“The government has indicated that they would be able to buy 3 million doses,” Kruimer said. “You’re talking about a market of $100 million, and that’s what we’re going for.”

“Additional human and animal studies would be required for full approval. A single dose of the recombinant vaccine, which is based on Crucell’s replication-deficient adenovirus vector expressing Ebola viral antigens, bestowed protection on macaque monkeys challenged with a lethal dose of Ebola virus in studies conducted last year by the Vaccine Research Center and the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Disease, located in Frederick, Md.”

“We are the only company in the world, which has developed a vaccine which keeps animals alive and disease-free after vaccination,” Kruimer said.

“Administrations in other countries also have expressed interest in the Ebola program, he said. IMPORTANT TO NOTE-“We will make sure it works in the United States and then we’ll take it from there.” (This was said in 2005)

Published: BioWorld Today, April 20, 2005

After years of research dating back to 2002, and making 3 million doses of the vaccine for the bio-terror program of the US Military, another Stage 1 trial is underway today, in 2014?  I don’t get it. Why are we initiating 2 trials 10 years apart to duplicate a product we already have and have stockpiled somewhere and could have easily produced enough in 10 years to offer us protection?

http://www.niaid.nih.gov/topics/ebolamarburg/research/pages/default.aspx

Fast forward to 2014-2015

Johnson and Johnson, who acquired CRUCELL recently says that the Ebola vaccine was tested on 8,300 patients and even added rabies vaccine tests. (Was this perhaps what locals were referring to when they said “they were giving them the virus?” Where did these 8300 come form and how are they now? And why are today doing vaccine research on 16 patients and why are we duplicating this process? )

The Ebola Vaccination trials going on as we speak for Ebola Zaire to develop a monovalent vaccine is underway with a trivalent Ebola, Marburg and Lassa vaccine on the horizon. Folks, we have already done this! We are doing it again? Why? Money?

We have a mono and a trivalent vaccine and had CRUCELL produce 3 million doses under Project Bioshield? Perhaps I’m missing something. Why are we going through 2 separate trials if our first one was wildly successful?

It would make sense to me that if we could mass produce 3 million Ebola vaccines bouncing around FDA approval via a fast track method couldn’t we also mass produce another batch of vaccines or produce more ZMAPP that has been shown to work at a fairly high efficacy?

Where are those 3 million vaccines being stored? At some US Military Bio lab? Perhaps in Fort Dietrich?

Russia recently asked for the vaccines successfully created in CRUCELLs initial vaccine production effort.

To date the Obama administration has refused Russia access to these vaccines. Russia is referring to the wildly successful 3 million vaccines produced under the guises of “Project Bioshield” and our 50.6 billion dollars.

http://www.whatdoesitmean.com/index1810.htm

The Project BioShield Act authorizes expedited procurement, streamlined personnel appointments, expedited peer review, biomedical countermeasures procurement, emergency use of medical countermeasures, and other biodefense activities.

http://www.astho.org/Programs/Preparedness/Public-Health-Emergency-Law/Emergency-Use-Authorization-Toolkit/Project-BioShield-Act-Fact-Sheet/

Project Bioshield, passed by the 108th US Congress, allocated 50 billion to fight potential bio terrorism. Bioshields funding was also to go forward to stockpile protective equipment, increased surveillance, detection of biological weapons and  to prepare State and Civilian hospital in the event the Ebola were to spread to American soil. I think we missed that target by a wide margin.

From my observations and recent experiences for some reason that 50 billion did not trickle down to US  hospitals badly in need of that stimulus money to protect nurses and healthcare workers.

I believe Congressional oversight  and other regulatory committees should be held accountable for this and other blunders regarding our nations response to this most recent US outbreak of Ebola.

This confirms our Bio Warfare efforts to not only produce a virulent and dangerous disease but to hold the treatment from a suffering public. 

Why have we said that the vaccines will not be ready till 2015? 

Why have 3 million vaccine shots hoarded in some military vault somewhere while thousands are dying and suffering? 

We had the funding, ie Project Bioshield and its 5.6 billion dollar infusion. Was this money wisely spent?

5.6 billion dollars could produce a whole lot of vaccines. At 3 million per hundred million we could have produced more than we needed for our entire populace and alot of Africa.

Obviously, this was not a priority.

Islamic burial ritual prevents containment of Ebola

Islamic burial ritual prevents containment of Ebola

10/18/2014

Contributed by Bare Naked Islam:

ISLAMIC BURIAL RITUALS: Islam isn’t just at the heart of the threat posed by ISIS. The religion is also contributing to the other major crisis plaguing the globe: the spread of Ebola. Washington and its media stenographers won’t tell you this, lest they look intolerant, but Islamic burial rituals are a key reason why health officials can’t contain the spread of the deadly disease in West Africa.

Many of the victims of Ebola in the three hot-spot nations there — Sierra Leone and Guinea, as well as neighboring Liberia — are Muslim. Roughly 73% of Sierra Leone’s and about 85% of Guinea’s people are Muslim. Islam, moreover, is practiced by more than 13% of Liberians.

When Muslims die, family members don’t turn to a funeral home or crematorium to take care of the body. In Islam, death is handled much differently. Relatives personally wash the corpses of loved ones from head to toe. Often, several family members participate in this posthumous bathing ritual, known as Ghusl.

Before scrubbing the skin with soap and water, family members press down on the abdomen to excrete fluids still in the body. A mixture of camphor and water is used for a final washing. Then, family members dry off the body and shroud it in white linens.

Again, washing the bodies of the dead in this way is considered a collective duty for Muslims, especially in Muslim nations. Failure to do so is believed to leave the deceased “impure” and jeopardizes the faithful’s ascension into Paradise (unless he died in jihad; then no Ghusl is required).

Before the body is buried, Muslims attending the funeral typically pass a common bowl for use in ablution or washing of the face, feet and hands, compounding the risk of infection. 

Though these customs are prescribed by Shariah law, they’re extremely dangerous and should be suspended. Mosque leaders must step in to educate village Muslims about the dangers of interacting with corpses.

Ebola victims can be more contagious dead than alive. Their bodies are covered in rashes, blood and other fluids containing the virus. “Funerals and washing dead bodies in West African countries have led, to a great extent, to spread the disease,” a World Health Organization spokeswoman recently warned.

WHO has issued an advisory to Red Cross and other relief workers in African Muslim nations to “be aware of the family’s cultural practices and religious beliefs. Help the family understand why some practices cannot be done because they place the family or others at risk for exposure.”

The document added: “Identify a family member who has influence with the rest of the family and who can make sure family members avoid dangerous practices such as washing or touching the body.” The warning appears to be falling on deaf ears, however.

Last month, Red Cross workers in Guinea were attacked by family members while trying to bury Ebola dead safely. In Sierra Leone, moreover, a family took Ebola-ridden bodies secured in body bags from the Red Cross, opened them up and exposed all members of the family to Ebola. They all contracted the disease.

The UN warns that if the spread of Ebola can’t be contained within 60 days, it could turn into a global plague. The West African infection rate is expected to jump from 1,000 a week to 10,000 a week.

Obama argues that suspending travel with these West African nations would do more harm than good.

But the practice of these religious customs is even more reason to do so. Even Saudi Arabia, the center of Islam, is now barring pilgrims from Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea from traveling to Mecca for fear of them bringing the virus into the kingdom.

Specially trained Ebola burial teams in Sierra Leone are often rejected by the Muslim community who insists on burying the dead in the  traditional  Islamic way.

Thanks to Bare Naked Islam for this information. Please visit their website below. It has plenty of information for you to devour. Visit frequently.
