Now that the world has been put on notice about Ebola, it’s time to try facts instead of scare tactics.
The World Health Organization (WHO) is the primary reporting agency on case numbers and deaths. Taking their stats with a few grains of salt, but recognizing that mainstream accounts come from WHO, here is their July 25 update, “Ebola Virus Disease, West Africa”:
1201 total cases. 672 deaths. These numbers cover Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia—the Ebola focus areas.
Looking a little deeper, we see that WHO divides each number into categories: “confirmed,” “probable,” and “suspected.”
Diagnostic methods for IDing Ebola in those 3 countries are uncertain. Therefore, we should only consider the category labeled “confirmed,” and even then we should have doubts.
So let’s look at the total for confirmed Ebola case numbers in those countries.
Confirmed number of deaths? 456.
Now consider another WHO report. This one is titled: “Influenza (Seasonal) World Health Organization,” dated April 2009.
It’s the WHO fact sheet on regular seasonal flu, the kind that is said to infect people globally, year after year, like clockwork.
Annual number of severe cases: 3-5 million.
Annual number of deaths: between 250,000 and 500,000.
Remember, that’s every year—not a one-time shot.
When it comes to seasonal regular flu, the World Health Organization issues no scare reports, no dire warnings, and the press mentions nothing. Zero.
However, with 814 confirmed cases and 456 deaths from Ebola, the whole world is put on notice.
We hear about possible travel restrictions. In the US, portable disease-diagnosing machines have been passed out out to many local communities. There are murmurs about detaining people who may have come in contact with somebody who may have Ebola.
Something is very wrong here. Something is upside down.

"In Russia live Russians. Any minority, from anywhere, if it wants to live in Russia, to work and eat in Russia, should speak Russian, and should respect the Russian laws. If they prefer Shari'ya Law, then we advise them to go to those places where that's the state law. Russia does not need minorities. Minorities need Russia, and we will not grant them special privileges, or try to change our laws to fit their desires, no matter how loud they yell 'discrimination'. We better learn from the suicides of America, England, Holland and France, if we are to survive as a nation. The Russian customs and traditions are not compatible with the lack of culture or the primitive ways of most minorities. When this honorable legislative body thinks of creating new laws, it should have in mind the national interest first, observing that the minorities are not Russians." -- Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, addressing the Duma February 4th, 2013. The politicians in the Duma gave Putin a standing ovation for 5+ minutes!

The annual crackdown on the population in NJ has begun on schedule. The Commie Red Star Hat is still the theme for this year again. Has anyone out there ever seen an LEO with a red star hat? I have never seen one personally. So why the red star? Psychological conditioning for the populace to bend knee and bow to authority? Why display a symbol of oppression and communism? Hell, if the state of NJ is going to promote ops like this then they should maybe have all LEOs dress the part:
Speak up all my NJ LEOs and question why is this symbol being used by our state? Does this symbol represent us as men and our values? We are not Russians and America is not a totalitarian state, it is a Constitutional Republic. Or is it anymore?

A few days ago this writer went to his first Minnesotans Against Common Core meeting in Becker Minnesota. This writer was not surprised to hear various concerns the speakers mentioned during the course of this
- Establishing Child Career Pathways beginning in Second Grade;
- Recording of "Biometrics" of Children in data bases for future Government use;
- Dumbing Down of the masses;
- Indoctrination children to make them more compliant to authority;
- Conditioning Individuality out of Children;
- Extending the Length of the School Year.
Understandably, the parents in the audience were upset, agitated and angry over children having their career paths set for them in second grade by teachers (Progressives would classify teachers among the educated elite.) And the loss of privacy in teacher's recording things like their children's hair color, stressers, aptitudes, food consumption, exercise habits as well as things like their mother's maiden names, family recycling habits and the like, permanently on government computers just seems creepy. And there was general concern over the Dumbing Down of America and the conditioning of individuality out of children amongst the crowd. (Progressivism has much in common with Marxism, and in other writings this writer has even said, "Progressivism is Marxism 2.0 because anything called Marxism 1.0 could not be sold to freedom loving Americans")

Call it what you will—taxes, penalties, fees, fines, regulations, tariffs, tickets, permits, surcharges, tolls, asset forfeitures, foreclosures, etc.—but the only word that truly describes the constant bilking of the American taxpayer by the government and its corporate partners is theft.
We’re operating in a topsy-turvy Sherwood Forest where instead of Robin Hood and his merry band of thieves stealing from the rich to feed the poor, you’ve got the government and its merry band of corporate thieves stealing from the poor to fatten the wallets of the rich. In this way, the poor get poorer and the rich get richer. All the while, the American Dream of peace, prosperity, and liberty has turned into a nightmare of endless wars, debilitating debt, and outright tyranny.
What Americans don’t seem to comprehend is that if the government can arbitrarily take away your property, without your having much say about it, you have no true rights. You’re nothing more than a serf or a slave.
In this way, the police state with all of its trappings—from surveillance cameras, militarized police, SWAT team raids, truancy and zero tolerance policies, asset forfeiture laws, privatized prisons and red light cameras to Sting Ray guns, fusion centers, drones, black boxes, hollow-point bullets, detention centers, speed traps and abundance of laws criminalizing otherwise legitimate conduct—is little more than a front for a high-dollar covert operation aimed at laundering as much money as possible through government agencies and into the bank accounts of corporations.
The rationalizations for the American police state are many. There’s the so-called threat of terrorism, the ongoing Drug War, the influx of illegal immigrants, the threat of civil unrest in the face of economic collapse, etc. However, these rationalizations are merely excuses for the growth of a government behemoth, one which works hand in hand with corporations to profit from a society kept under lockdown and in fear at all times.
Indeed, as I point out in my book A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, the real motivating factor behind erecting a police state is not to protect the people, but to further enrich the powerful. Consider the following costly line items, all part of the government’s so-called quest to keep us safe and fight terrorism while entrenching the police state, enriching the elite, and further shredding our constitutional rights:
