When it comes to Ebola, the story that the government is telling us just keeps on changing. At first, government officials were claiming that it was very difficult to spread the Ebola virus. Some of them were even comparing it to HIV. We were given the impression that we had to have “direct contact” with someone else’s body fluids in order to have any chance of catching the virus. But of course that is not true at all. Now authorities are admitting that Ebola is “aerostable”, that it can be “spread through droplets”, and that it can remain on surfaces for up to 50 days. That is far different information than we have been getting up until this point. So that means when they were so confidently declaring that they know exactly how Ebola spreads they were lying to us.

RealtyTrac’s data shows that sales of lower priced houses, those most likely to be first-time purchases, have “fallen through the floor. It’s the clearest demonstration of a first-time buyer affordability gap.” And without first-time buyers there will be no buyers able to move to their second home and so on up the tiers. (Link)
Mortgage purchase applications dropped 5% week over week two weeks in a row, for the latest week’s report (Oct 24). Bloomberg was uncharacteristically spin-free in its assessment: The big drop this month in mortgage rates has yet to raise demand for purchase applications which, in the October 24 week, fell a sharp 5.0 percent for the second straight week. And the trend for purchase applications is suddenly moving lower with the year-on-year rate now at minus 15 percent.

This video is a short summary of the literature resulting from 19 different laboratory studies (the list of which are on the YouTube site).
Bottom line – it’s more airborne than we are being led to believe. So expect and plan for the unexpected.

For a number of years, the topic of FEMA Camps (i.e. American concentration camps) have been rumored to exist. Jesse Ventura, on his show, Conspiracy Theory, revealed to the public the existence of FEMA Camps in such a dramatic fashion that the episode has been banned from public viewing.
Through the years, there has been much speculation about the existence of FEMA Camps and their true purpose. Recent events surrounding the recent Ebola crisis, is making it clear that the camps, as well as other co-opted public facilities (e.g. stadiums, malls, etc.) will be used to enforce medical martial law for both the sick as well as anyone else who the government determines is a (health) risk to the well-being of the public. Am I saying that the camps will be used to house political dissidents. This is undeniably true. This article traces the inception of FEMA camps to the present and intended purpose. This article will also expose the fact that it will not just be Ebola victims going to these camps where there will be medical facilities.

That nurse in Maine sure does love the spotlight.
After Kacie Hickox returned from Sierra Leone, where she was treating Ebola patients, she was outraged when she was put in isolation by the state of New Jersey. After railing about her civil rights, she was then transferred to her home in Maine, where she was asked to remain home for the remainder of the 21 day incubation period.
Well, you can’t tell Kacie Hickox what to do. No sir. She knows her rights.

On October 30th, the Novorossian press agency announced that on the prior day, Ukrainian troops had resumed their heavy shelling of towns in the former Luhansk and Donetsk Republics, two regions which had been joined together as a new nation Novorussia, and which had originally been Ukraine’s Luhansk and Donetsk administrative districts, bordering with Russia.
This shelling went way beyond merely violating the ceasefire agreement, and the Ukrainian Government was now in open and public violation of it, and in public contempt of it. Ukraine had signed in Minsk Belarus an agreement on September 5th, the Minsk Protocol, along with the leaders of those two breakaway regions, and also with Russia’s Ukrainian Ambassador, and with the OSCE (Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe) as the monitor of compliance with this agreement.

Just in time for the Halloween Spooks to come out and play by slashing the prices of the precious metals, JP Morgan (vampire squid), experienced another ghastly withdrawal from its gold inventories today. Something quite eerie seems to be taking place as the majority of Comex gold withdrawals are coming out of the dark dungeons at JP Morgan Chase.
In just one week, JP Morgan lost 41% of its total gold inventories. On October 22nd, JP Morgan held 983,694 oz of gold… and as of the last update on Thursday, October 30th, there were only 581.819 oz remaining. This was a drain of 401,875 oz in a tad bit more than a week.

Central banks are printing rules almost as fast as they’re printing money. The consequences of these fast-multiplying directives — complicated, long-winded, and sometimes self-contradictory — is one topic at hand. Manipulated interest rates is a second. Distortion and mispricing of stocks, bonds, and currencies is a third. Skipping to the conclusion of this essay, Grant’s is worried.
“One would not think at first sight that government had much to do with the trade of banking,” Walter Bagehot, the famed Victorian writer on finance, mused a century and a half ago. As time rolls on and regulation gives way to regimentation, the question presents itself: Do bankers have much to do with the trade of banking anymore?

From the beginning, the Obama administration has tried to portray the ongoing conflict with Russia as the result of tensions in Ukraine.
But this highly disingenuous media tactic attempts to conceal the totality of the president’s strategy regarding Russia.
You see, Ukraine is far from the only flashpoint in this conflict. And astute followers of military science see a broader conflict with Russia that has the potential to engulf all of Europe in a wider war.

The Ebola circus continues, and the Obama Administration officials look like clowns.
Let’s just take a look at a few of the headlines. “Health System Not Prepared for Ebola” is a headline from the AP, and that is in stark contrast to what we have been told. “Small clusters could overwhelm the system” is what the article says. So, this begs the question of why no quarantine? Some governors in places like New Jersey, New York and Illinois think quarantine is the way to go. It is scientific technique on how to contain infectious disease, but that is not what the Obama Administration thinks. Some in the MSM think the same thing. This opinion piece says the decision by these governors is “hasty” and “adds to the Ebola problem.” Really? Well, that is not what the Pentagon thinks because it is “isolating troops back from Africa for 21 days.” Some of the talking points are downright bogus. They say things like we should treat these returning health care workers like “conquering heroes.” Who is going to think these folks are “heroes” if they come back and infect people? Africa’s best chance of beating this is if America stays strong and uninfected. If America is consumed by Ebola, or even the fear of Ebola, West Africa hasn’t got a chance.

The NSF awarded an $84,000 grant to researchers at the State University of New York at Buffalo yesterday to figure out how to make the public fear “climate change and overpopulation” as much as Ebola by analyzing how the public became concerned about a potential large-scale Ebola outbreak in the U.S.
“In addition to the issue-specific value of knowing more about risk perceptions related to the Ebola outbreak, findings from this project will inform the design of communication messages related to risk issues that are often perceived to be psychologically distant by the American public, such as climate change and overpopulation,” the study’s abstract states. “The specific mechanisms through which the study variables influence risk communication behaviors will also inform communication campaigns aimed at encouraging greater public engagement with risk information.”

A man in Baltimore, Maryland walked into a hospital on May 6th, 2014 because of an allergic reaction to medication prescribed to him by a dentist. Unfortunately he did not walk out of the hospital alive. Now people believe it is because police extensively tased him after being admitted into Good Samaritan Hospital.
A recent investigation by the Baltimore City state’s attorney claims “King began suffering from seizures and when hospital workers tried to move him to ICU, he refused and became combative, resulting in hospital personnel calling police.”
