The Phantasmagoric World of Washington
Sometimes it seemed that only two issues mattered in the midterm election campaigns just ended. No, I’m not talking about Obamacare, or the inequality gap, or the country’s sagging infrastructure, or education, or energy policy. I mean two issues that truly threaten the wellbeing of citizens fromKansas, Colorado, and Iowa to New Hampshire and North... Read More
“You Can’t Have Wars and Public Health”
Washington escalates its military interventions abroad, launching simultaneous air and ground attacks in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan; multiplying drone attacks in Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia; training, arming and financing proxy mercenaries in Jordan, the Gulf States and Iraq; and dispatching National Guard battalions to West Africa, ostensibly to combat the Ebola epidemic, though they lack...

Revoking visas from affected countries can protect the U.S. without isolating nations in need
Let’s forget about the GOP “hypotheticals” that Hamas militants will deliberately infect themselves with Ebola and sneak into the U.S. from Mexico to wreak havoc. Or that gay soldiers getting “massages all day” will make them less able to perform adequately in West Africa and against terrorists. Or even the suggestion that if Mitt Romney... Read More
The federal government has announced that thousands of additional US soldiers are being sent to Liberia. General Gary Volesky said the troops would “stamp out” ebola. The official story is that combat troops are being sent to build treatment structures for those infected with ebola. Why combat troops? Why not send a construction outfit such... Read More
From the Cape to Cairo, Puck, 1902. Source: Library of Congress, public domain The White Man\
Growing up in rural Ontario, I would talk with older folks about politics. A favorite topic was Quebec, and how those selfish French Canadians wouldn't fight in the Boer War, the First World War, and the Second World War. Later, as a student in Quebec City, I would hear the other side. French Canadians saw... Read More

Ebola and ISIS Are Symptoms of Decline
Yale Professor Paul Kennedy’s seminal 1987 work the Rise and Fall of the Great Powers explores how powerful nations tend to self-destruct economically based on their tendency to take on responsibilities and missions that are peripheral to their core interests and which stretch their resources to a point where they go into political decline and...

Sometimes, if you want to catch the essence of a moment, however, grim, you need to turn tohumor. Recently, the New Yorker’s resident satirist Andy Borowitz produced one of his patented fake news stories that began this way: “The president of CNN Worldwide, Jeff Zucker, attempted on Wednesday to defuse the brewing controversy over his...

More information is available that suggests the the government had advance information that ebola was coming to the US and that the government expects a much larger outbreak of the disease in the US than it admits. Keep in mind that Washington is evil and has been killing people in seven countries for thirteen years... Read More
Will the War on Terror Be the Template for the Ebola Crisis?
These days, two “wars” are in the headlines: one against the marauding Islamic State and its new caliphate of terror carved out of parts of Iraq and Syria, the otheragainst a marauding disease and potential pandemic, Ebola, spreading across West Africa, with the first cases already reaching the United States and Europe. Both wars seemed... Read More
German High Government Official Seeks Washington’s Reassurance that the US did Not Weaponize the Species of Ebola that Germany Made Available to Washington Washington has not provided the reassurance. By providing the virus to Washington prior to effective reassurances, Germany is complicit in the breakout of a bio-warfare grade of ebola, which has now spread... Read More
UPDATE: As I read this notice from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the US National Institutes of Health, the US Government and Pharmaceutical corporations have been conducting ebola tests on humans.http://clinicaltrials.gov/show/NCT02041715 This is official confirmation of Dr. Boyle and Dr. Broderick’s reports that the US government has conducted ebola experiments. Perhaps the vaccine was not effective,... Read More
The Intertubes tell me Ebola is a big thing nowadays. Some netizens maybe too young to remember the first Ebola scare, back in 1989, an outbreak among monkeys in a research facility near Washington, D.C. The event was chronicled in a best-selling book, The Hot Zone, and today it was announced that Ridley Scott is... Read More
Growing up in Washington in the 1930s and '40s, our home was, several times, put under quarantine. A poster would be tacked on the door indicating the presence within of a contagious disease -- measles, mumps, chicken pox, scarlet fever. None of us believed we were victims of some sort of invidious discrimination against large... Read More
The public continues to be reassured that ebola is not a problem for the US, but CNN reports that Obama has appointed an Ebola Czar. http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-10-17/meet-americas-new-ebola-czar The Czar is not a medical person but an insider lawyer who served as chief of staff to Vice President Biden. Little wonder ebola conspiracy theories are spreading faster... Read More
The country that could do this would have little trouble dealing with Ebola, but are we still that country? Whether Ebola represents a major threat to the U.S.A. I’ll leave to the experts. (At least one of them, whose opinion I highly respect, says not [Come on in, the Plague Is Fine, by Gregory Cochran,... Read More
According to Forbes magazine, at least 5,000 Americans contacted healthcare providers fearful they had contracted Ebola after the media reported that someone with Ebola had entered the United States. All 5,000 cases turned out to be false alarms. In fact, despite all the hype about Ebola generated by the media and government officials, as of... Read More
A nurse who treated the Dallas ebola patient has come down with the disease. The CDC specifies a face mask, which the nurse had along with the other CDC specified gear. The use of face masks is based on the supposition that the virus is not airborne. Perhaps covering up for itself, CDC’s Dr. Tom... Read More
A number of readers have read reports that the CIA was active in West Africa just prior to the ebola outbreak, and some have read reports that the ebola strain is a weaponized version engineered to spread by air and surface contact. Some readers ask me to confirm or refute these reports, and others want... Read More
We have known since . . . well, when haven’t we known that our public officials are incompetent. Their incompetence is always expensive, but now it risks a worldwide ebola pandemic. With so little known about a deadly disease, one would think that with ebola on the rampage in three west Africa countries, air flights... Read More
