Ebola to Land on U.S. Soil for First Time

Helen Pow and Joshua Gardner, Daily Mail (London), August 1, 2014

Two Americans battling Ebola are being flown from Liberia to Atlanta in specially outfitted planes–bringing the incurable disease to U.S. shores for the first time, it has been reported.

Dr Kent Brantly and hygienist Nancy Writebol, both of whom are said to be in ‘grave condition’, will be brought back to the U.S. one by one, sources told ABC News.

Emory University in Atlanta has confirmed that they will be taking one of the patients ‘in the next several days’ after they arrive in the U.S. in the Gulfstream jet. It is not clear which of the two patients they will be housing or where the second patient will go.

Emory and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which is also based in Atlanta, have built a special containment unit to house the patient, who is in need of an extremely high level of isolation.

CNN reported that the CDC jet took off on Thursday to collect the victims.

Inside the aircraft, the patients will remain in a tent-like structure called an aeromedical biological containment system, which allows officials to move highly contagious patients without fear of exposure to pathogens.

According to WXIA, Emory’s isolation unit is on the ground floor and has three beds with the highest standards in negative pressure air handling, HEPA filtration and exhaust.

‘When this unit was being built, we hoped we’d never have to use the space to treat a serious communicable disease,’ said Emory epidemiologist Bruce Ribner.

However that’s precisely what will soon happen. The modified Gulfstream III took off from Cartersville, Georgia Thursday afternoon for the first-of-its-kind mission to collect the Ebola patients.

After it emerged the Americans were returning to their homeland, Twitter lit up with fellow citizens fuming over the decision.

One self-proclaimed patriot was especially unhappy with the news.

‘Ebola patient will be brought to the U.S. in a few days–now I know for sure that our  leaders are incompetent. KEEP THEM OUT OF HERE!’ Donald Trump tweeted Thursday evening.

Efforts have been made to help the two patients with the means available in Liberia–and just hours before the flight to Atlanta was revealed, father-of-two Brantly gave up the single vial of an experimental treatment sent over from the U.S. in order that Writebol–a grandmother and longtime Christian missionary–could receive it instead.
Brantly, from Fort Worth, Texas, ensured Writebol received the experimental drug instead of him after only a small amount arrived in Liberia, the Samaritan’s Purse charity said on Wednesday.

Nancy Writebol

Brantly would receive a transfusion of the blood of a 14-year-old Ebola survivor who personally helped to treat. Giving blood transfusions from survivors to still suffering Ebola patients is an established, though not nearly proven, treatment for the largely untreatable disease.

Announcing Dr Brantly’s gallant decision, Samaritan’s Purse president Franklin Graham said: ‘Yesterday, an experimental serum arrived in the country, but there was only enough for one person. Dr. Brantly asked that it be given to Nancy Writebol.’

However, on Thursday charity SIM said in a statement that Mrs Writebol’s condition had worsened, despite the serum.

Mrs Writebol is in stable, but serious condition and is receiving an experimental drug that doctors hope will better address her condition, the charity said.

Her husband, David, is close by but can only visit his wife through a window or dressed in a haz-mat suit.

‘We continue to pray for Nancy’s full and complete recovery,’ said Bruce Johnson, president of SIM USA. ‘Even though her condition has worsened, we know she is receiving the best possible medical care, and we are thankful that she has access to this experimental drug.

‘We believe in the power of prayer and ask people around the world not only to pray for Nancy and Kent, but also for everyone affected by this terrible virus.’

On Wednesday, the charity said Dr Brantley’s condition had gone from grave to serious.

However, on Thursday they said he had ‘taken a slight turn for the worse overnight.’

Despite Brantly’s recent turn for the worse, his wife remained confident Thursday that he would pull through.

‘I remain hopeful and believing that Kent will be healed from this dreadful disease,’ she said in a statement Thursday. “He is strong and peaceful and confident in the love of Jesus Christ, which is his sustenance right now.’

She also said that she and her children, who were in Liberia with Brantly before he fell ill, remained perfectly healthy.

Dr Brantly was in West Africa with the missionary group responding to the Ebola outbreak when he was diagnosed last week.

His wife and children returned to the United States before Dr Brantly showed any signs of illness.

Samaritan’s Purse has evacuated all of its non-essential personnel for the Ebola outbreak.

Meanwhile on Thursday, U.S. health officials warned Americans not to travel to the three West African countries hit by an outbreak of Ebola.

The travel advisory applies to nonessential travel to Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, where the deadly disease has killed more than 700 people this year.

Yesterday, Johnson told MailOnline that within the next few days we will know if Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebol are likely to survive.

He said that Ebola could turn for the worse within hours and that both the patients may soon begin to show signs of internal bleeding which could be fatal.

Mr Johnson also warned that unless the international community does more to stop what has become the most serious outbreak of Ebola in history then it will spark a ‘tsunami of destruction’ in Africa–and maybe beyond.

Last week Dr Brantly, 33, was identified as the first American to be diagnosed with Ebola, which kills up to 90 per cent of those it infects.

Mrs Writebol, 60, an educator turned missionary from Charlotte, North Carolina, was the second.

The condition update will be agonising for both their families–not least Dr Brantly’s wife Amber who is in the US with their two young children.

Dr Brantly and Mrs Writebol were in Liberia with SIM USA and Samaritan’s Purse, a Christian aid charity.

Dr Brantly was treating the sick whilst Mrs Writebol was disinfecting medics as they left isolation wards.

Mr Johnson told MailOnline that both were being treated in isolation private houses at the SIM compound near the Liberian capital Monrovia.

Mrs Writebol was still in her home and her husband David has had to move out.

Mr Johnson said he spoke to Dr Brantly on Monday and that he ‘wasn’t as good as he had been.’

He said: ‘The situation is so fluid. One day it’s up, one day it’s down. He was up working on his computer, talking with people this is not a bed ridden situation.

‘He is moving, he is active. He is interactive and we are pleased with that.’

Mrs Writebol is suffering from diarrhea but is talking and in touch with family via her computer on Skype and via email.

Mr Johnson said: ‘Her husband David seems strong. He is handling this with faith but he is also realistic with Nancy and Kent.

‘This is not a light situation. This is a very serious situation but we are encouraged by how they are doing so far. The next few days are critical in assessing the recovery of both of them.’

SIM spokesman Palmer Holt said that the coming days are so important because symptoms would start to show that would indicate that the disease had entered its second, more serious phase.

The first stage is characterised by fever, headaches, nausea, vomiting, a rash and diarrhea.

The second however is haemorrhagic fever in which patients endure difficulty breathing and swallowing and agonising bleeding inside their body.

Blood pours out of their ears and nose and turns their eyes from white to red. They die an agonising death. Generally patients who enter the second stage do not survive.

Mr Johnson said that SIM USA had not yet identified how Dr Brantly and Mrs Writebol had become infected but said that they take ‘extreme safety measures’ and follow guidelines from the Centre For Disease Control.

He said: ‘Our hearts just break for them.’

So far more than 600 people have been killed in the outbreak across West Africa that has infected more than 1,200.

Liberia has closed its borders to help stop the disease amid fears that it could spread after a patient suffering from Ebola took a flight to Lagos in Nigeria.

    We used to be ‘first’ in every good thing.

    Now it seems, we’re becoming ‘first’ in everything bad

    • Erasmus

      This is the thin edge of the wedge and sets a precedent for bringing other infected people into the country, first Americans and then foreigners. Watch for it.

      • Beloved Comrade

        AIDS and mental illness are already conditions not subjected to exclusion for immigration into the United States.

        The only condition for exclusion for immigration is if one is White.

      • Ograf

        I wonder how many infected people are slated to be treated in Israel ?

      • Germanicus

        Interesting point regarding the “wedge,” especially if either the doctor or medical worker live. Would not the heroic thing be for both of these people to stay, suffering the same fate with the same resources available to the people they served? If he survives and goes back to Africa to work with Ebola patients, how will he be able to look some dying child in tbe face and explain why all the sick people in the world cannot go to America to be cured. Genuine charity, if one is so moved, is helping races develop along their own path to evolutionary improvement, in their own place, according to the internal and environmental gifts available to them today. This is natural, organic growth. I thought the libs are all for such models of “sustainable development?”

    • Beloved Comrade

      “it seems we’ve become ‘first’ in everything bad…”

      Not “We.” I didn’t agree to this, did you? This is being done to us, with neither our consent nor permission.

      If put to a vote, do you think the residents of Atlanta would agree to fly freaking EBOLA into their midst?


    These “do gooders” chose to do this, leave them there with their new found family.
    Waste of Daddy’s free education

    • Oil Can Harry

      Since these white do-gooders believe the races are equal, why not treat them in Africa?

      After all, it’s RACIST to believe medical professionals in America are “superior” to the witch doctors… uh, I mean brilliant scientists… in Africa.

      • Xerxes22

        You can bet that this government will be bringing over African Ebola victims for treatment. They will qualify as refugees and since we have the best medical facilities, it will be only fair to bring these people here. We can pay for it by making some more cuts in Medicare and privatizing the VA hospitals. Both parties and Mark Zuckerberg will support this decision.

      • ElComadreja

        Let them die among the black scum they love.

    • propagandaoftruth

      Ever seen the Vice World guide to Liberia?

      They defecate on the beach, live in each others body fluids. I’m amazed this plague hasn’t spread quicker. One mutation away I bet…

  • Truthseeker

    Why do they need to come back here? Leave them where they are and keep them quarantined.

    • Pro_Whitey

      Yes, I can’t believe I have to say that white people are going to bring Ebola to America. Ugh.

      • Erasmus

        Thin edge of the wedge.
        First we bring in Americans infected. Then, in the name of compassion, we bring infected foreigners. It will happen.

      • ElComadreja

        They caught it from blacks they were treating which is a neat trick since there is no treatment for it.

        • There is no cure for it, but I think doctors like Brantley have been treating the symptoms in the hope that some of the victims will pull through on their own.

    • Ograf

      Cnn deleted my comment the other day for saying exactly what you just said. I agree with you 100% why bring them here , so the virus can get loose and kill 50 million or so. The U.S. has always got to stick its nose in everything.

  • exlib93

    Once again, we’re being sold out for the profit of the drug companies.

    • milo

      Or its a coverstory. Because its here already.

  • Einsatzgrenadier

    I wouldn’t be surprised if the Feds began secretly importing Ebola-infected African negroes, depositing them in white neighborhoods and using them as biological weapons against white people. I wouldn’t put anything past those psychopathic bastards.

    • As on a lot of issues, you and I share the same beliefs. There is evidence that the federal government has been Murder, Inc. for decades. Henry Makow covers a lot of specifics via his daily postings of articles. Even if you don’t believe in the existence of the Illuminati, there have been enough plots to fill several books that Henry has written. Jeff Rense and David Duke cover some of the same ground, too.
      With TB from Mexico and ebola from Africa the feds could do a lot of damage to the white race, with Holder and Obama laughing their butts off at our misery. Plus, the followup would be martial law and whites quarantined and thus starved to death. The possibilities are endless.

      • David Ashton

        Ethnic (gene-targeted) warfare is possible, probably much researched. More likely that CO2 global warming, solar flare blackout, nuclear Armageddon or an asteroid hit?

        • Sick of it

          They’ve been researching genetic weapons in Israel for years. The problem with being multiracial is that it’s hard to use such weapons lest one destroy one’s own kind.

          • kikz2

            in the case of depleted uranium and the middle east.. the tribe lets us deal w/its spread over there….they stay out of theatre… nifty eh? the kicker.. the boys bring it back home to not only their families but everybody else as well, and its also spread around by transport of returned vehicles back for retrofit, usually by train.

          • Sick of it

            Studies of Chernobyl years after the original meltdown should dissuade people with an IQ above retarded from messing with nuclear fission or radioactive materials in general. There are other avenues than destroying the entire natural environment or even destroying human DNA until the end of time.

          • The irony is that depleted uranium is not very radioactive at all; most of the U-235 and U-233 have been removed from it; it is a leftover from the uranium enrichment process for producing reactor fuel. The main down-side to DU is that it is a toxic heavy metal. What typical critics of depleted uranium either do not know or are unwilling to admit is that other metals used in alternate varieties of armor-piercing kinetic penetrator ammunition ALSO contain large quantities of toxic heavy metals, such as tungsten.

          • Sick of it

            I don’t doubt that a bit re: the toxic heavy metals. Modern society is saturated with them in general.

          • Correct. The US Congress’s Office of Technology Assessment flatly stated in their 1993 “Proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction: Assessing the Risks” publication that Israel has an offensive biological weapons program. While this was 21 years ago, it should be noted that Israel still has not signed the 1972 Biological Weapons Convention. Their work in this field is most likely being conducted at the Israel Institute for Biological Research, at Ness Ziona. This facility is surrounded by a high concrete wall, topped with sensors, and armed guards patrol the perimeter. No aircraft are allowed to overfly the area, and the facility is not shown on Israeli maps. At least six researchers have died while working there, but no causes of these deaths have been publicly revealed.

        • Ashley Johnson

          As a biological weapons agent, the Ebola virus is feared for its high case-fatality rate. Because of its rarity, the disease may not be diagnosed corrected at the onset of an outbreak. The Ebola virus was researched and weaponized by the former Soviet Union’s biological weapons program Biopreparat. Dr. Ken Alibek, former the First Deputy Director of Biopreparat, speculated that the Russians had aerosolized the Ebola virus for dissemination as a biological weapon. The Japanese terrorist group Aum Shinrikyo reportedly sent members to Zaire during an outbreak to harvest the virus.

          • Beloved Comrade

            Do you have a source for that? I don’t doubt that any of it is true, it’s typical of what governments do, I’d just like to source it.

          • Ashley Johnson

            Well I posted a link but AR has to approve it first, just type into google: “Ebola biological weapons global security”. I got my info directly from global security.

          • I have Alibek’s book “Biohazard” (ISBN 0-375-50231-9) at home, and in it he also wrote that the Russians had weaponized a very virulent strain of Marburg (a filovirus closely related to Ebola and which produces identical symptoms) as well as engaging in other criminally lunatic projects, like developing multidrug-resistant (MDR) strains of bubonic plague.

    • JackKrak

      Don’t blacks already behave as if they’re all infected with some kind of horrible African disease?

      • ElComadreja

        It’s called melanin.

  • Stan D Mute

    Experts say Ebola won’t be a major problem in America or Europe and that it’s primarily a major problem in Africa because the natives prefer native “medicine” (ie witch doctors) to white man medicine.

    In other words, Africans are susceptible because they have an average IQ of 65.

    But don’t we have right here in America at least four to six million Africans with an IQ of 65? Their average is 85 here and their bell curve is shaped slightly different to ours leaving, last I tried the math, several millions with their native IQs.

    Look how AIDS is spreading like wildfire (still) among Africans in America. If (when) Ebola infects the African population in America it may well spread. Will we still be “rayciss!” for avoiding Africans like the plague when they have the plague?

    • No matter what reasons we have – whether because of crime or because of a deadly virus – whites will ALWAYS be blamed for avoiding blacks.

      • Grocks

        If you don’t avoid them, a group of them will assault you.

    • I doubt ebola would get entrenched here, as Americans don’t eat bats.

  • Olorin

    That bucktoothed no-chinned missionary lady is appearing on Christian blogs and forums all over the place. We are supposed to pray that her pathological altruism doesn’t lead her to the death she has been courting all her life with her thanatophilic religion and hatred of the blessings of evolution and evolved societies. Personally, I think that if there were a god, s/he/it would be trying to send humanity a message–framed in basic science–for the umptybillionth time.

    “Brantly would receive a transfusion of the blood of a 14-year-old Ebola survivor who [sic] personally helped to treat.”

    Ingestion of others’ blood to achieve salvation. Gee, where have I heard THAT before? Oh, I know–Monrovia, and Christianity!

    “‘We believe in the power of prayer”

    Great. Then send them both back and let prayer fix them.

    I cannot begin to express how I detest these people, their ethics, their worldview, and everything they stand and work for. These people are enemies of everything decent, intelligent, good, and evolved. Unfortunately they have millions who would destroy all those good things to play out their psychosexual dramas of abasement and masochism.

    • Anglokraut

      Funny how those who believe in the healing power of prayer FOR OTHERS, ditch the magic spells when THEY get sick.
      I say leave them there to die. Live like the Negro, die like a Negro. Perhaps one of their White friends or family members will take the true lesson of this completely avoidable story.

    • M&S

      That bucktoothed no-chinned missionary lady is appearing on Christian blogs and forums all over the place.

      See: _Pathological Altruism_ (the book) Williams Syndrome. There should be a review somewhere on this website.
      It’s biological and genetic Olorin. And like those who used to consider the retarded and the microcephalic to be ‘touched by god’ for want of their innocence and zealotry as a desire to ‘help out’, we are as much to blame for our admiration of a negative trait we don’t possess (and thus don’t understand the limits of) as those who, with help, are elevated to positions where their PA can become a society wide psychological dysfunction.
      That said, there is nothing wrong with removing disease from the primitive environments which otherwise serve as it’s petri dish of human genome evolving lethality and transmissivity.
      But it needs to be done systemically (remove the animal base population, clean up the rivers, install modern hygiene) and with conditions (birth control followed by second child sterilization).
      If the blacks in Africa will not accept recolonialization as in their best 70 IQ interests, then they should not be given anything until they admit they lack the faculties to create a modern society (South African blacks attending college have an 84 IQ) and that whites or Chinese or Indians should not be forced to do so, for free.

  • Bob Livingston posted a piece on his website decrying ebola scaremongering. He claims its a disease that’s hard to catch. He also claims that in the entire history of the planet only 800 or so people have died from ebola, and he contrasts that to the tens of thousands who die from the flu every year.

    I had no time to do the research to verify his claims, but obviously the virus offers such a horrible way to die, that some fearmongering is justified.

    • Zaporizhian Sich

      He knows nothing, Ebola is as contagious as the Black Death, also know as Bubonic Plague when it’s in the pneumonic form. We all know what that meant for everyone from Ireland to Russia. That was for lack of the better word, the horseman of the apocalypse called pestilence. The only reason these Ebola carriers are being brought here is so our psychopathic elite can get their hands on the virus for their own ends. We should be very fearful of viruses like this one, and all level 4 pathogens which have NO cure or treatment, NO vaccines, are highly contagious and kill a large percentage of infected persons. Ebola, depending on the strain, kills up to nine out of ten people it infects. Can you imagine what that would do to our country? See what happened during the Black Death, and afterwards for a clue. It will lead to chaos, then war when the ruling elite’s grip on the planet is broken, and they stop at nothing to regain it.

      • The 541 Plague of Justinian killed an estimated 50 million people, at a time when the world’s total population was only some 200 million. This was thus about 1/4 of the total human race. Recent research has proved conclusively that this was really plague, a.k.a. Yersina pestis, just like the 14th Century Black Death.

    • Sick of it

      Ebola is only limited by the speed at which it develops in the human body and kills its host. If it were slowed just a little, it would be far worse than the black death.

      • David Ashton

        The lack of obvious early symptoms is a serious problem for contactees.

    • Yes, just 800 deaths in this outbreak, but that’s out of only about 1400 cases, a 57% mortality rate which I do not regard as particularly comforting.

  • DaveMed

    Well, I’m happy to report that I was able to take advantage of this story today.

    We were sitting in the hospital cafeteria at lunch, and the conversation turned to this Ebola issue. At some point, I exclaimed, “This is why borders matter!” I went on to bring up the concern of drug-resistant tuberculosis making its way across our southern border.

    All well within earshot of plenty of medical students, nurses, and doctors.

    Boy, did it feel good.

    • David Ashton

      James Burnham (vide supra) also said liberals panic when their ideology collapses.

      • I’ve noticed that many of them simply go into denial or make feeble excuses when that happens, as evidenced by some regular posters to this site.

  • Mergatroyd

    Why didn’t they treat the ebola cases in Africa instead of deliberately importing a deadly disease into the U.S.?

    The government is not trustworthy and as long as people are involved, mistakes will be made, intentional or otherwise.

    I’m wondering if the real purpose is to collect samples and data for germ warfare purposes.

    • I suspect the idea is to monitor and record the progression of the disease in humans under conditions available in very advanced US research facilities, but not available anywhere in Africa. If the feds were doing what you suggest, the research would be at Plum Island, NY or Ft. Detrick, MD, using apes or monkeys, and not at a public hospital.

          • Chagas could become established in the United States, as the reservoirs include raccoons, armadillos, opossums, squirrels and other rodents. The insect vectors are the blood-sucking conenose bugs, which are endemic to the warm regions of the southern USA which do not have a real change of seasons. Also unfortunate is the fact that Chagas is caused by a protozoan, and protozoan infections can be devilishly hard to cure (like malaria).

          • Sick of it

            We’ve had cases of protozoan infections in my home state from kids drinking the water when they were out swimming.

            Oh, yeah, I know about Chagas. (Studied it as an undergraduate). I was just trying to make a joke.

            Frightening disease, though. Throughout California blood bank donations are now routinely screened for the presence of Trypanasoma Cruzi, the protozoon that causes Chagas, and the reduviid bugs, also known as assassin or kissing bugs, are endemic to the American Southwest.

            You can bet that many of these “refugees” coming in from south of the border have chronic Chagas, which can lead to heart failure and require expensive treatment, (Thank you, American taxpayer), decades down the road.

    Some comforting news now that ebola has become a world wide traveler thanks to jet fuel and idiot government officials:

    With some infections, you can shed and spread the virus long before you get ill. That’s not the case with Ebola. It’s only after you are sick and feverish do you become contagious. However, it only takes a miniscule amount to infect and kill. A microscopic droplet of blood or saliva on your bare hand could enter through a break in your skin. And, whether you realize it or not, we all have breaks in our skin.

    INDICATIONS emerged, yesterday, that one of the 15 airport contacts that assisted the late Liberian, Mr. Patrick Sawyer, that died of Ebola Virus Disease, EVD, may have contracted the deadly virus.

    They bring these two Americans back in full hazmat suits in specially prepared planes and put them in isolation. When an American ever gets TB, s(he) is forcibly put in isolation and chased all over the world if necessary as what happened a couple of years ago. We quarantine all animals coming into the US. Yet, we have open borders and allow all these people across the border with all kinds of diseases. Make sense anyone?

      Does anyone remember Typhoid Mary Mallon?

  • IKUredux

    Well now, color me: “I don’t care”. First of all, any White who goes into Africa to help with ANYTHING, is an Ahole. The fact that this young White man chose to give the shot to a sixty year old woman, while he has a wife, and two young children!, just indicates to me how screwed up he is. Come on, even Jesus wouldn’t agree with that crap decision. Now, based on obamas lack of concern for White Americans, you gotta figure he is behind this move to transfer these two cootie bitten White dumb ass do-gooders because he is hoping that Ebola will spread to the entire (White) medical community. Thus, making that whole AA medical school attendees more of a reality. Meanwhile, obama and his family, I’m sure, will only use White doctors. (Just like Zuma and the rest of the South African ruling class, while demolishing standards for pilots so blacks can qualify, INSIST ON WHITE PEOPLE flying their personal aircraft.) Either that, or obama wants to encourage White suicide missions to Africa, by pretending that he cares.

    • ElComadreja

      White negro-worshipers are not sane. Would that every one of them contracts ebola.

      • Anglo

        How right you are. Every White person I’ve known who dated and/or married a Negro has a case of hyper Attention Deficit Disorder and/or some other nervous or mental defect. Their elevator just doesn’t go all the way to the top.

        Now I remember. Someone escaped from a biolab. Seems all that isolation didn’t quite work…

  • Fair Dinkum

    Everybody take a deep breath and calm down. Ebola is spreading in Africa because of African poverty and ignorance. There have been incidents of mobs attacked doctors in the belief the doctors are secretly spreading the disease. In Western countries, if the disease arrives at all, it won’t get far.

    Those of you who suspect this is some kind of hoax perpetrated by the government to deliberately bring Ebola here need to up your meds.

    • David Ashton

      Better to “lose the plot” than to be buried in one.

    • ElComadreja

      No, it’s spreading because it’s highly contagious and 90% fatal.

    • One manifestation of that ignorance you mentioned – aside from doctors being attacked – is people “rescuing” infected family members from isolation clinics, in the belief that the disease is caused by sorcery, rather than a virus, and which merely guarantees the continuing spread of the epidemic. In late July, the number of new cases was actually accelerating, according to this graph from the Wikipedia article.

  • No Border, No Culture, No Containment . . . ..
    ebola rash.

    • Zaporizhian Sich

      Wait until you see how Ebola attacks collagen, which among other things causes muscles to detach from bone. That causes victim’s faces to become “death masks.” because once the disease goes that far the victim is near death. Zombie like behavior has occurred after complete and permanent cessation of all higher brain functions. This virus is something straight out of the Resident Evil movies. If it was airborne and had a longer incubation period, not only are humans in danger of global extinction, but all other primates and even some other mammals such as antelope would also be in jeopardy.

    • Ashley Johnson

      Eww that’s scary. Just like I said on that other ebola article, open borders are not a good idea they don’t just bring diversity but also deadly diseases. So much for humans being equal huh?

      • David Ashton

        Just a detail: in the early years of migration from the tropics into England, the notion of medical checks was considered as a reasonable barrier. Today we have health-tourism and also diseases once thought to be eliminated. If western “countries” have become refugia for gay Africans, female Arabs, pirate Somalis, flooded Bangladeshis, and millions more unhappy folk, why not admit all the world’s sick and lick their sores with Christian love? Light training for Hell if we have not taken the Lord Jesus as our personal savior.

        • Anglo

          Amen, brother.

      I just have to add that the Ebola rashes reminds me of the Last of Us, it looks like the Cordyceps fungus that grows on the human bodies after being infected.

      • I don’t know if Cordyceps will grow on people, but it sure does a job on insects and spiders. The very similar Beauveria fungus has produced at least one human infection, however.

  • Paleoconn

    Stupid White liberals going there and getting infected. If they get anybody sick here, they should be deported or worse, executed.

  • The domestic isolation protocol for these two privileged ebola carriers is brought to you by the same folks who made it impossible for anthrax to escape from their labs a few months ago. Trust us, nothing can go wrong. If something does go wrong, remember that there are four, count ’em four, hospitals in the USA equipped to deal with ebola cases so there still will be nothing to worry about.


    • The infamous 1979 anthrax leak in Sverdlovsk which killed about 100 Soviet citizens resulted from negligent failure to reinstall exhaust filters after routine maintenance. Presumably the facility was staffed by highly-trained experts, but the accident still happened.

  • Visceral

  • Ashley Johnson

    It’s just lines on maps that divide human beings, we’re all equal and we should live together without borders in a happy world. It’s not like these Africans living in poor conditions have diseases or anything, we’re all humans and we’re equal. What? you say you don’t want to get infected with a deadly disease from Africa? then you’re a racist!

  • TonyWestfield

    The Village Idiot interprets the article…Well, we are told by the experts that Dr. Brantly and Mrs Writebol had taken ‘extreme safety measures’ and they followed guidelines from the Centre For Disease Control. That’s comforting to know–but wait, they got infected with the virus! And now we are supposed to feel confident that these two patients are being handled here in the USA using the same (best practices) safety measures and CDC guidelines…and nobody else will get infected, hmmm?

  • Grocks

    This is laying the foundation for putting people in FEMA camps for their own protection. It will be called quarantine or isolation. Obama won’t have to declare martial law because everyone will agree we have a pandemic. The laws are already in place to enforce mandatory quarantine.

  • Beloved Comrade

    Two Americans battling Ebola are being flown from Liberia to Atlanta –bringing the incurable disease to U.S. shores.

    Anyone here doubt this isn’t being done on purpose for nefarious reasons?

  • paul marchand

    I am really pulling for this doctor and the nurse.
    IMO they are heroic figures. Those of you who see me on here know I am no apologist for the US govt policies that have been decimating whites for the last 50 years, and stealing the rights of whites in the name of “civil rights”.
    But this is “different”. As with any other disease, in time it will likely spread, and kill many, while for some God Only Knows reason, some won’t contract it. This doctor and nurse are heroic figures, IMO. That said, the wisdom of bringing them back to the US is certainly arguable. Those in their network are aware that their survival chances will be better here (given that the “field laboratory” in Africa is unbeatable, due the widespread aspects of Ebola, not to mention HIV and other deadly viruses).
    While I hate putting blacks on pedestals (which in effects puts whites as 2nd class citizens), this pair were on the fronts lines, not only attempting to quell the disease amongst Africa’s inhabitants, but hopefully finding a cure or vaccine potentially for all of us.

    • paul marchand

      this guy and nurse are the equivalents of soldiers……you just can’t leave em behind. His quest, as I gathered it, was to find a cure or vaccination. In fact, one method he seems to be involved in is how they are to treat him: blood transfusion from a person who contracted and was cured.

      • That is actually very similar to the way antivenins are produced: horses are injected with small, but steadily increasing amounts of the venom to be targeted. Once the horses have developed significant resistance, blood is taken from then and the antibodies separated out.

      • Garrett Brown

        You’re insane.

      • Erasmus

        I pity them, but they knowingly took the risk of going there. They are not the equivalent of soldiers. No one ordered them to go.

        If they are to be treated, they should be treated back in Africa. Although it might be close to impossible, they should bring out portable quarantine facilities back to Liberia. To risk infecting the people here in the US is immoral and insane.

        But soft-headed emotion now trumps hard-headed, dry-eyed reason in the dying United States.

  • From reading the more qualified opinions in this thread, it seems that Ebola isn’t a good virus for mass global pandemics because it kills its carriers too quickly and too efficiently. And that if we should be panicking over anything, it should be TB coming from our south of the border jolly hoardes.

    You do realize that God commanded the Israelites to practice quarantine with sick individuals, right? As I’ve stated before, these people have accepted the words of the enemies of God as greater than the Word of God. They are heretics. Notice they are not just risking their own lives but the lives of countless others by doing this. One who feels compassion for others would not put potentially hundreds or thousands of other people at risk to save their own pathetic skin.

    “Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it.” Luke 17:33

    No greater love hath a man than that he lay down his life for his friends…not bring a plague upon them.

    • Anglokraut

      You also realize that the Bible is a work of fiction, telling stories to teach the morality of the people who wrote the Bible? That is why the Bible also condones rape, slavery, murder, and genocide. There are much less horrifying morals taught by the pre-Christian slave Aesop, especially if you can get a copy of his fables that haven’t been rewritten for Christians. Some of those fables are still pretty grisly, though.

  • Zaporizhian Sich

    Okay, then how do you account for people wandering around in Zaire naked, bleeding from every orifice like a zombie? That apparently happened back in 1995 there. Read about what happened AFTER the Black Death decimated up to 80 percent of the people in some regions of Europe. The old order by which the elites lorded over vast armies of serfs was broken forever, and some attempted to re-establish it by force. The dramatic drop in population had far reaching effects that extend to the present day, starting with the emergence of labor saving machinery, the printing press, the Renaissance and finally the beginnings of the Industrial Revolution. But before that happened, a series of brutal wars erupted across Europe because the whole continent was in chaos as people fought for the spoils. Imagine how much worse a modern Black Death’s aftermath would be in the age where nuclear weapons can hit any point on Earth within 30 minutes after someone turns the launch key. There would be land grabs, vendettas over real or perceived injustices, and plain old fashioned fighting over the remains of former nations. If you think Ebola is just a skin rash, then why don’t you experiment with your own life and not others.

  • 4321realist

    Most of the expert opinions I’ve been reading regarding this affliction are claiming there is little to no chance it will spread in the US.

    But take a look at the aids virus, almost as deadly, that has spread like wildfire here.

    Both require contact with body fluids in order to be transmitted to someone else.

    If this virus infects homosexuals working in the medical field anywhere in the world as aids did, it will spread just as effectively and rapidly, because promiscuous sex among homosexuals is legendary.

    • Perhaps, but HIV spread itself so well via sex, IV drug use and contaminated, unscreened blood and blood products precisely because the latency period is so long, typically at least several years. People thus had the opportunity to spread it for years before they knew they were sick. Ebola victims, on the other hand frequently show symptoms as quickly as a matter of a few days.

    • Sick of it

      Quite a few homosexuals switch hit too, so expect crossover to the general population.

      • Absolutely; and of course heroin addicts are very vulnerable and come in all sorts of sexual orientations. There’s also prostitutes, who are by definition promiscuous and are frequently also junkies.

  • 4321realist

    I’m pretty sure these two people were shown favoritism by this black run government we now have, because they are seen as heroes for volunteering to work in black nations.

    She was an “educator” the latest word for teacher. I wonder if Mrs Writebol was affirmative actioned out of her job and forced into early retirement and decided to go off to Africa to do good. Wonder how she paid her fare and living expenses, probably contributions from her church. I bet her church made a documentary about her wonderful

    work converting the heathen to Christ and showed it around while trolling for more contributions and govt grants to keep up the good work.

  • A Freespeechzone

    Does ANYONE actually believe that the CDC (govt agency) will act in the BEST interests of US citizens?

    Population reduction has been mentioned on several occasions.

  • Zaporizhian Sich

    A 60 percent death rate is still catastrophic, the black death killed off a third of Europe from Ireland and Portugal to Russia and Greece. Asia and the Islamic world also suffered a massive loss of population, nobody was spared the horror of the Black Death. It is now endemic to every white nation, hiding in prairie dogs and other rodents. There’s no reason that I can see where bubonic and pneumonic plague could not return with a vengeance, and now our rulers are risking all of our lives by bringing people infected with a much more dangerous disease. Bubonic plague can be treated, this for the most part is a death sentence. Even if those two people could be saved, that does not mean there is a cure for massive numbers of infected people. It is quite likely for any cure to work, infected people must be treated before the full effects of the disease appear.

  • AFlaVet

    Name me one government entity that does it’s job well? That includes the CDC…..who only recently lost track of anthrax. Keep in mind that this guy…is a DOCTOR and supposedly knows how to treat the disease and keep from being infected by it. Aids takes years to manifest itself. Ebola is the same in that it utterly destroys the immune system…but it only takes days. So…you’re on a plane and a guy shakes the hand of a flight attendant and he’s infected…..now she gets it. Now she serves you drinks…touches your hand…or the infected guy uses the crapper….leave a bit of bodily waste there…you miss it…you come in contact with it…and there it goes. And they’re not 100% certain that it’s NOT, airborne.
    Couple that with all the TB infected, measles and chickenpox from these “poor” illegals….we’re toast.


  • Zaporizhian Sich

    Why then is the World Health Organization freaking out? That “American” who got aboard a flight exposed as many as 30,000 people, and who knows how many were infected.

    • brior

      Ebola is airborne?

      • Zaporizhian Sich

        Yes, through coughs and sneezes. It has been proven to be airborne more than once, starting with a terrifying incident in Reston Virginia, just 15 miles from the White House. A facility full of monkeys was the scene of an airborne outbreak. One ofrmore infected monkeys, infected others all over the facility, even those they had no direct contact with. Four workers were also infected. USAMRID officers quietly killed all the remaining monkeys, drenched the building in disinfectants, then the building was demolished. It was only after the fact the strain of Ebola was determined not to be dangerous to people, the four workers never got sick. Make no mistake, any aerosolized body fluids from an infected person will infect others, especially if inhaled. This is how tuberculosis and the pneumonic form of bubonic plague are transmitted from person to person.

        • Anglo

          You’re right. I had also heard Ebola can be spread by coughs and sneezes. Are not in those coughs and sneezes the bodily fluids from the infected — as you said “aerosolized body fluids.”

    • One way to deny it access to more hosts would be to somehow convince those idiot Africans to stop eating bush meat. Who really “needs” to eat a monkey, an ape or worst of all, a bat?

  • brior

    I think it was tried without the human transporter and the thought of the day was hell no. Now it’s magically a humanitarian thing. And there is no way it can get out, The CDC said so! …. False flag anyone?

  • none of your business

    A conference between Obama and various african leaders is planned for September in DC. Who knows if some or their aides and planes will carry Ebola.
    The English call the semi annual Commonwealth Convention the cannibals and kleptomaniacs convention which is pretty much what the UN and any other conclave of africans is.

    • Kenner

      ‘The Cannibals and Kleptomaniacs Convention’. Brilliant!

  • Doctor Brantly’s thinking must have been “Let’s see. I am a 33 year-old father of two young children, so instead of staying here and earning a nice living to support them, I am going to travel to Africa and expose myself to a Level 4 biohazard, and after I am infected, I am going to put my fellow Americans at risk by demanding to return to the USA.”

    There was once a time when I never imagined anyone could be this stupid. Unfortunately, the realization that people are that dumb hasn’t been particularly liberating for me.

  • That influenza outbreak killed 50-100 million people, which was several times more than the war killed.

  • none of your business

    Here is a sermon Dr Idiot preached before he went to Liberia.

    “In October, [my wife] Amber and the kids and I are moving to Monrovia, Liberia, to work as medical missionaries at ELWA Hospital,” Brantly told the congregation at Southeastern Church of Christ in Indianapolis. “For two years we will live and work and serve among the people who, until the last 10 years of peace, had known nothing but the violence and devastation of war for the previous 20 years.” He added, “I’ve never been to Liberia.”
    Why did he decide to take his family to “this far-off place” he knew nothing about?
    “It’s because God has a call on my life,” Brantly said.
    Quoting the Apostle Paul, Brantley urged the congregation to live boldly, saying, “God did not give us a spirit of timidity.”
    The sermon offers a deeper look at the man whose life has been permanently damaged by his work, and how his faith drove him to sacrifice.

    “On difficult days,” Brantly said, “when I want to give up or when I wonder if I’ve made the right decision, retelling my story reminds me of how God has brought me to where I am

    • Even if I believed in a Supreme Being that had a call on my life, my own family would still be top priority. God could cause Ebola to mutate into a harmless strain if He wanted; He doesn’t need bleeding-hearts like Brantley to do anything.

      • Anglo

        Right. People are always acting like God needs their help. God doesn’t need anybody’s help or any thing from humans if He’s God.

      • Sick of it

        Modern people don’t seem to understand that God has traditionally used plagues to punish people for their wicked behavior. Modern people think they can do no wrong or will always be forgiven. They have that weird Calvinist mentality.

        “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:

        Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.” Matthew 7:13-14

        That tells me that maybe we should take this sin and salvation deal a whole lot more seriously…like people did centuries ago. God is not a vending machine.

        • Anglokraut

          The belief in a deity or deities is a psychological crutch to help people deal with phenomena which is not readily understood. That’s why lightning used to come from the forge of Hephaestus and was thrown by Zeus; now we understand ionization, and the discharge of energy in the atmosphere.
          I notice that you like quotes; I’m rather fond of this one:

            Drug resistant strains of bacteria is due to over-prescription and incorrect usage of antibiotics, not a deity.

  • Those test animals were crab-eating macaques from not only the Philippines, but also Sumatra, in Indonesia. The presence of an Ebola-type filovirous in Southeast Asia – i.e. outside Africa is a bit unsettling. Worse still, swine at a hog farm in the Philippines tested positive for Ebola reston, as did one of the farm workers. As with Ebola zaire, the reservoir for Ebola reston is probably fruit bats, as these are very common in Southeast Asia.

  • Sick of it

    Considering that people who contract ebola aren’t likely to receive treatment early enough in the development of the disease, I also doubt that figure. By the time they even see a doctor, it may be too late, let alone a doctor with the proper treatment. Imagine an ebola outbreak in the U.S. Even here, most people would die before doctors figured out what was going on and had the meds on-hand.
