Aerosol Transmission Of Ebola More Likely In US Than Liberia

Here is a troublesome report about the aerosol transmission of the Ebola virus:

We also demonstrated aerosol transmission of Ebola virus at lower temperature and humidity than that normally present in sub-Saharan Africa. Ebola virus sensitivity to the high temperatures and humidity in the thatched, mud, and wattel huts shared by infected family members in southern Sudan and northern Zaire may have been a factor limiting aerosol transmission of Ebola virus in the African epidemics. Both elevated temperature and relative humidity (RH) have been shown to reduce the aerosol stability of viruses (Songer 1967). Our experiments were conducted at 24 degrees C [i.e. 75 degrees Fahrenheit] and < 40% RH, conditions which are known to favour the aerosol stability of at least two other African haemorrhagic fever viruses, Rift Valley fever and Lassa (Stephenson et a/. 1984; Anderson et a/. 1991). If the same holds true for filoviruses [Ebola is a type of filovirus], aerosol transmission is a greater threat in modern hospital or laboratory settings than it is in the natural climatic ranges of viruses.

Aerosol transmission is thought to be possible and may occur in conditions of lower temperature and humidity which may not have been factors in outbreaks in warmer climates.

So ... was Obama ad-Dajjal addressing fear or fact when his administration said you can't catch the Ebola virus on a bus?

I'll bet his Ebola Czar doesn't know the answer either.


Dolly Parton v. Pope Francis

Dolly Parton says that people who judge are committing a sin:

But as far as the Christians, if people want to pass judgment, they're already sinning. The sin of judging is just as bad as any other sin they might say somebody else is committing. I try to love everybody ... I think everybody should be allowed to be who they are, and to love who they love. I don't think we should be judgmental.

However, Pope Francis says that the sinner often must be told that he is sinning:

The corrupt does not perceive his corruption. It's a little like what happens with bad breath ... it's hard for those who have it to know, unless someone else tells them. For this reason, the corrupt can hardly get out of their internal state by way of remorse of conscience. Corruption is a greater evil than sin. More than forgiven, this evil must be cured.

[Original papal speech in Italian @]

Granted, Dolly and Francis were not talking about the same alleged sin, but they both address the subject of "being judgmental". If the corrupt should be told about their corruption and "cured", surely one must be "judgmental" to recognize the sin and communicate it as such to the sinner.

Who you gonna believe: Dolly or the Pope?

Was US Behind The Death Of Total Petrochemicals Chief Executive ???

The chief executive of Total Petrochemicals allegedly was killed when his corporate jet crashed on takeoff into a snowplow being operated by a drunken driver.

However, it is now being alleged that he may have been killed for uttering the following words:

“There is no reason to pay for oil in dollars,” stated de Margerie in July. “Doing without the (U.S.) dollar, that wouldn’t be realistic, but it would be good if the euro was used more. The dollar occupies too large a niche in the international oil and gas trade. The fact that oil prices are quoted in dollars per barrel does not mean that payments actually have to be made in that currency. There are no valid reasons to pay for hydrocarbons in the American national currency.”

Before you dismiss this as just another "conspiracy theory", consider the following:
  • This is why Saddam Hussein was murdered;
  • This is why Muammar Gaddafi was murdered;
  • This is why the US is embargoing Iran; and
  • This is why we're going to war with Russia.

American Dream Is Gone

Here is an essay which outlines seven ways in which the American dream is dead:

At the end the author says this:

Can the American dream be restored? Yes, but it will take concerted effort to address two underlying problems. First, we must end the domination of our electoral process by wealthy and powerful elites. At the same time, we must begin to address the problem of growing economic inequality. Without a national movement to call for change, change simply isn’t going to happen.

Bubba, it ain't gonna happen. The rich will not voluntarily give up their power and wealth. The poor and the former middle class have absolutely no tools and no leverage with which to accomplish what the author recommends. Our political system has been thoroughly corrupted by bankgangsters, corporations, Israeli thugs, and their accomplices in the one percent.

And were there to be a violent revolution, not only would it be crushed but the outcome would be an even more repression economic regime.

Nope, we waited too long to act. And now we're screwed.

Facts v. Fear

According to this puff piece, Obama ad-Dajjal is stressing facts over fear in his Ebola comments:

While that may be true in this instance, it certainly does not apply to some of his other comments:
  • He stressed fear when he lied about 9/11 and ignored the facts,
  • He stressed fear when he allegedly murdered Osama bin Laden and ignored the facts,
  • He stressed fear when he lied about the situation in Libya and ignored the facts,
  • He stressed fear when he lied about alleged Syrian chemical weapons use and ignored the facts,
  • He stressed fear when his administration alleged that Russia shot down MH-17 and ignored the facts, and
  • He stressed fear when he put in place sanctions against Russia and ignored the facts.

This man is a dastardly liar who knows how to manipulate your fears to get what he and his overlords want. Do not listen to a thing he says. I suspect that he wants to calm our fears over Ebola virus disease only because we're on the verge of the 2014 election.

Still Whining About Quarantines

Here is a silly essay in The New York Times whining about the hardship imposed by quarantines:

If you're more committed to the people of Africa than to your neighbors back home, then when you volunteer don't come back.

Does it seem to you that in general Democrats are anti-travel ban and anti-quarantine while Republicans are pro-ban and pro-quarantine? Which group has their heads up their asses on this issue?

Blaming Ebola On The Russians ???

Here's a suspicious report which seems to imply that Russian biological warfare (BW) research is somehow responsible for the Ebola epidemic. Yeah, I know it doesn't come right out and say that, but why else would anyone publish this report now?

Hey, let's not miss an opportunity to smear the Russians, no matter how silly that makes us look. We're the ones with BW labs inside the outbreak area, while the Russians have no such facilities there.

In case you did not know, some of the largest BW research and production facilities in the former Soviet Union were located in Kazakhstan. Many were purchased by the US Defense Department following the breakup of USSR. Some of the facilities were destroyed, while the rest were converted to civilian use. As discussed in the following report, Kazakhstan is volunteering their expertise toward the global effort to manufacture vaccines against the Ebola virus:

Only a maniac would release into the environment a modified organism as a biological weapon without having a means to protect his own personnel. If anyone should be suspected of ongoing BW research for diabolical reasons, it should be partners in crime the US and Israel. There are more dangerous homicidal maniacs in these two countries than just about anywhere else in the world.

By the way, there's a real gem buried at the end of the Kazakhstan report:

It was reported that Ebola might reach Kazakhstan at the turn of 2014-2015. The possible route may include both air and ground transportation and it may not necessarily come from the Western African countries of its origin - Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone - but may as well arrive from countries like the United States, India, Turkey or Russia.

For that to happen, there would have to be a reservoir of Ebola virus in the US, India, Turkey, and/or Russia. What do the people at Tengrinews know that we aren't being told?
