Here we go again. The political statements which have a questionable foundation.
What about taking a broader view?
Starfield concluded that, every year in the US, the medical system directly kills 225,000 people. 106,000 die as a result of medicines the FDA has approved as safe. The other 119,000 die as a result of treatment in hospitals.
Makes the claimed ebola death count look tame by comparison. I get the impression it is a good sell story for news publishers, where flu isnâ€™t getting the readers in. Also worth remembering Agenda 21 is the reason for the WHOs existence.
If a doctor says a patient died of virus VCX-2QK-89tf, a supposed thing the mother of the patient will never see and never have a chance of seeingâ€¦and if the doctor says he knows the patient had the virus because a diagnostic test was run on the patientâ€¦the mother will believe the doctorâ€¦even though she has absolutely no idea what kind of diagnostic test was run or whether it is accurate or even relevant.
â€œI saw my son die of the virus.â€�
She didnâ€™t. But sheâ€™ll believe it. We can understand why she believes it.
But that doesnâ€™t affect our judgment when we look into a virus and investigate whether it is real, whether it actually causes disease, and whether the diagnostic tests for the virus tell a true story.
When you have hundreds of millions of people who assert that Ebola is killing people, youâ€™re looking at faith.
Blind faith in authorities who donâ€™t deserve it.
The nutters were at it in 2014
Take this exampleâ€”a farming village in Liberia, one of the so-called epicenters of Ebola. The families manage to produce enough to get by. They live downstream from a giant Firestone rubber plantation.
For years, to no avail, the people of the village have been protesting the runoff of noxious elements into their water supply. Fish are dying. Crops are failing. That means malnutrition, hunger.
That means chemical assault on their immune systems.
People are developing sores, lesions, fevers, respiratory problems, digestive problems, including diarrhea.
How easy is it to call this Ebola, in light of the current hysteria?
â€œEveryone knowsâ€� itâ€™s Ebola. But it isnâ€™t.
People are obsessed by the idea that a whole population, in far-off nation, under the gun, must all be suffering from One Thingâ€”in this case, a virus.
Splitting this apart into a number of different causes in different regionsâ€”contaminated water, open sewage, severe malnutrition, decimating wars, toxic vaccine campaigns, the vast overuse of antibiotics, industrial pollutionâ€”this doesnâ€™t have the compelling ring of: â€œItâ€™s a virus.â€�
So people say, â€œForget about all that. We donâ€™t want to know about it. We know itâ€™s a virus.â€�
No they donâ€™t.
HARTFORD, CT â€” Governor Dannel Malloy has declared Connecticut to be in a state of public health emergency, enabling the indefinite suspension of certain civil rights. State bureaucrats have been granted the broad authority to forcibly detain suspected sick people without due process. The declaration came preemptively, as Connecticut has not yet seen a single case of the virus it purports to stop.
The governorâ€™s October 7th declaration read as follows:
â€œIn response to the epidemic of the Ebola virus currently affecting multiple countries in western Africa, and in order to provide the Commissioner of Public Health and other appropriate officials with all authorities necessary to prevent any potential transmission of the Ebola virus within the State of Connecticut, I hereby declare a public health emergency for the State, pursuant to the Connecticut General Statutes Section 19a-131a, for the duration of the epidemic. Specifically, in accordance with Connecticut General Statutes Section 19a-131b, I authorize the Commissioner of Public Health to Order the isolation or quarantine, under conditions prescribed by the Commissioner of Public Health, of any individual or group of individuals whom the Commissioner reasonably believes to have been exposed to, infected with, or otherwise at risk of passing the Ebola virus.â€�
â€“ Governor Dannel P. Malloy, October 7, 2014
Rationalizing his actions, the governor said in a statement: â€œWe need to have the authorities in place that will allow us to move quickly to protect public health, if and when that becomes necessary. Signing this order will allow us to do that.â€�
The recipient of most of the newly-imparted power is Jewel Mullen, Connecticutâ€™s Commissioner of the Department of Public Health (DPH). By having this measure in place, Commissioner Mullen explained, â€œwe donâ€™t have to scramble in the event I need to take action.â€�
The actions that authorities might want to â€œscrambleâ€� to use is the forcible quarantine of citizens â€” without charges or trial.
Connecticut General Statutes Section 19a-131a spells out the powers that may be used during the state of public health emergency:
â€œ[While] the emergency exists [the state] may do any of the following: (1) Order the commissioner to implement all or a portion of the public health emergency response plan developed pursuant to section 19a-131g; (2) authorize the commissioner to isolate or quarantine persons in accordance with section 19a-131b; (3) order the commissioner to vaccinate persons in accordance with section 19a-131e; or (4) apply for and receive federal assistance.â€�
As noted above, the Commissioner may issue an order of mass vaccination at his or her own discretion.
Section 19a-131d states that any individual who refuses to comply with any portion of the order may be punished with with fines and imprisonment for up to one (1) year.
They had this sort bollocks in Leicester with smallpox vaccinations. The people revolted, the stopped vaccinating, and the incidence of smallpox outbreaks, er, plummited. Well whadayoukno?
Jenner was later proved to be a fraud.
