A U.S. Nurse Witnesses Ebola’s Ravages in Sierra Leone, Where Horrific Conditions Claim Lives Daily

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2014-10-17

As the infections of two Dallas nurses fuel concerns about Ebola in the United States, the death toll in West Africa is approaching five thousand. The World Health Organization has warned there could be up to 10,000 new Ebola cases per week in the coming months, up from the current 1,000. We are joined by Michelle Dynes, a nurse and epidemiologist at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention who has returned from Sierra Leone. Dynes spent the past several weeks responding to the Ebola epidemic in the country’s Kenema district. “It’s a strange situation to see that much pain and suffering and not be able to provide a hug, or comfort,” Dynes says.

An Unprofitable Disease: In the Political Economy of Ebola, Who Lives and Who Dies?

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2014-10-17

democracynow

On Democracy Now!, we look at the political and economic circumstances of the spread of Ebola with science writer Leigh Phillips, who calls for a socialization of pharmaceutical research and production. Phillips says that using revenues from profitable drugs to subsidize research for unprofitable drugs would reduce the costs of vaccines and their development. He also argues the decimation of the healthcare infrastructure is linked to the same free market policies and austerity measures pushed by Western countries and the International Monetary Fund that impoverished the West African countries where the Ebola outbreak has occurred. “We need to begin to ask whether capitalism itself is not pathogenic,” says Phillips, whose recent article for Jacobin magazine is “The Political Economy of Ebola.”

WARNING: Ebola & the Days of Noah – Mass Scale Genetic Engineering of the Human Race

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2014-10-01

In this radio broadcast, Tim Alberino is interviewed by the fellas from the blogtalkradio program “We Are The Essential Resistance” concerning a conspiracy to conduct mass scale genetic alterations to the global human populace via Ebola, or other virus vector vaccines. The implications of this nefarious plot are enormous, and could even have eternal ramifications in the days to come. Tim proclaims a dire warning concerning the imminent repeat of the days of Noah, and the coming war that mankind will foolishly wage—allied with a host of non-human allies—against God Almighty, and His Anointed One.
