Doctor Boards Atlanta Flight In HazMat Suit To Protest "Lying CDC"

"If they're not lying, they are grossly incompetent," said Dr. Gil Mobley, a microbiologist and emergency trauma physician from Springfield, Mo. as he checked in and cleared Atlanta airport security wearing a mask, goggles, gloves, boots and a hooded white jumpsuit emblazoned on the back with the words, "CDC is lying!" As The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports, Mobley says the CDC is "sugar-coating" the risk of the virus spreading in the United States.


As The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports,

A Missouri doctor Thursday morning boarded a plane at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport dressed in full protection gear to protest what he called mismanagement of the crisis by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.


Dr. Gil Mobley checked in and cleared airport security wearing a mask, goggles, gloves, boots and a hooded white jumpsuit emblazoned on the back with the words, “CDC is lying!”


“If they’re not lying, they are grossly incompetent,” said Mobley, a microbiologist and emergency trauma physician from Springfield, Mo.


Mobley said the CDC is “sugar-coating” the risk of the virus spreading in the United States.


“For them to say last week that the likelihood of importing an Ebola case was extremely small was a real bad call,” he said.


“Once this disease consumes every third world country, as surely it will, because they lack the same basic infrastructure as Sierra Leone and Liberia, at that point, we will be importing clusters of Ebola on a daily basis,” Mobley predicted. “That will overwhelm any advanced country’s ability to contain the clusters in isolation and quarantine. That spells bad news.”




Mobley, a Medical College of Georgia graduate who had an overnight layover after flying to Atlanta from Guatemala on Wednesday...


“Yesterday, I came through international customs at the Atlanta airport,” the doctor told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “The only question they asked arriving passengers is if they had tobacco or alcohol.”

Why is it that the first case of Ebola outside West Africa is outside the US?  Suddenly we are in panic mode and I dont see a thing from any other country.  How about India, China South America, Europe.  Just seems odd.

Very little traffic out of west Africa and it looks like it all goes to Europe and US. Why on Earth did we not close those flights? I was wondering if they didn't close them so US personnel could get to west Africa without a charter. That would be ironic.

In West Africa nobody can afford to travel more than a few miles from home. In the US, airplanes are used like commuter buses. Contained?

Dr. Kent Brantly to Congress: Ebola Is a 'Fire Straight From the Pit of Hell'

All Out Of Bubblegum's picture

Brantly is an asset. Even his name sounds fake.

yogibear's picture

He's no fake. He's the doctor brought to the US for Ebola treatment.

Brantly said that he was one of the luckiest ones, receiving "the best care possible in Liberia ... and world-class treatment" in the United States. But, he warned, the outbreak is "a fire straight from the pit of hell. We cannot fool ourselves into thinking that the vast moat of the Atlantic Ocean will keep the flames away from our shores."

All Out Of Bubblegum's picture

He was hanging with Obama and testified in front of the Senate.

He's an asset. Whether he's a witting or unwitting asset is up for debate.

corporatewhore's picture

Your comment regarding Dr. Brantley is an insult to a decent human being who willingly placed himself on the front lines to heal and aid the sick and dying.

That is what being a physician is all about.

I could never do what he did as I don't have the courage or the empathy.

Believe what you like. Anyone that's urging the use of troops in order to fight a disease is just another asset.

"Wash your hands & wait for the vaccine?!?!"

With such an INCREDIBLY infantile strategy, all we need to do is get Africa to USE SOAP?!?!?

Are there ADULTs ANYWHERE to be found in this administration?!?!

This grandstanding DR is probably part of the majority of DRs who are against Information technology.

They are against computerizing the patient gathering info.  In this case, they would have known he was recently in West Africa.

TruthDetector's picture


The doctor is "grandstanding?!?!" FOR WHAT GAIN?!?!

So YOU can say he's "against information technology?"

You're an I-D-I-O-T.

As a practicing MD for almost thirty YEARs with a Masters in Public Health from UCLA, I can emphatically state that the CDC IS LYING.

America is being SCREWED.

We don't need some overeducated egotistical DR to know the government agency is wrong?  Anyone with a brain knows CDC is talking theoretically and even that is designed to be politically correct.

The local Hospital took the information that this disease courier told them that he was just coming from West Africa and they lost that info after it had been given to the Nurse.  SO Hospital procedures and technology in a hospital in TX caused this walking and flying disease courier to be sent home so that he could infect others.

Stop hiding Technologically Luddite DR errors that could have stopped this.  As a 30 yr practicing DR, you are probably more of the Technology problem than of any solution...

Primadonna ER DRs are the major cause of this getting worse....

"The nurse was part of a “complex care team” in the emergency department, Lester said, adding: “Regretfully, that information was not fully communicated throughout the full team. As a result the full import of that question was not factored in to the clinical decision-making.”"

Probably didn't care to hear about what the Nurse took down in the intereview.  How did this happen?  Please speak up, Mr 30 year UCLA edumacated DR, which ego weakness that caused this do you subscribe to?

There is too much government mandated data that must be collected on each patient, making a quick assessment and triage determination impossible.  Pages of crap on every chart that has nothing to do with the presenting problem and possible cause.  It's the complext data dump that nurses are being forced to collect in the triage area that is making the ER far more complex and complicated to take quick effective action.  Somewhere in the masses of computer screens was the information that this patient had recently traveled from Africa.   The admission clerk thought the tech communicated  it, the tech thought the nurse communicated it, the nurse thought the doctor understood it.  And the patient certainly thought that someone might have been listening to him.  In fact, everyone was so busy looking at their "high tech" computer screens that no one really understood the problem at all.

I am a former ER nurse.  This summer I took my daughter to a small ER for an ankle injury.  The nurse spent most of her time, looking at a computer screen, trying to fill in all the data questions during the inital interview.  She rarely looked directly at my daughter, let alone her swollen ankle.  The nurse's eyes were glued to the screen asking so many inane and intimate questions about her personal life, including, the government mandated questions about "domestic violence," guns in the home, alcohol use etc (my daughter asked the nurse, "Does anyone really answer truthfully?) At the end of the data inquisition, she finally looked at my daughter's ankle and asked her if she wanted ice on it.  No kidding, her next question was, "Would you mind walking to X-ray?" It's these total morons who are triaging for Ebola?  They are so obsessed with filling in the data lines (all charts are audited for completeness) that they have forgotten to look at the patient and their presenting symptoms and actually think about what they are seeing, and listening to what the patient is telling them.  Imagine handing your young child over to these idiots to manage their "quarantine" period.  P

This summer, I took my 4 1/2 yr old daughter in to the combination ER/Urgent care at our local hospital. I waited till last second to get her last shots before school started as I dont like them at all but if u allow first one on day she is born, you must get them all unless a doc signs off an exemption here in ND. She had gotten two vaccines the day before,  MMR and Chicken  pox and was having a bad reaction...her arm had a large, expanding red circle on it and a 1.5 inch wide, 1/4 inch tall blister over the injection site. The triage nurse filled out all the computer forms 'correctly' and sent us into the urgent care. When I got bill, I was surprised to see 'reaction to medication' listed as the culprit, not vaccine reaction....I guess so they don't have to report it as a vaccine reation.  So the visit to get the shot? Free...the urgent care, and two subsequent doc visits the next few days? over a thousand. Blue Cross paid about 900, and I was billed about160. Nope, nothing wrong with the 'best medical system in the world' s/ I did file a VAERS report for the reaction tho..doctors all said they had never seen a large blister form on a shot before. She seemed after a week tho, but will have a scar there the rest of her life

The incompetence and lack of trust in all government agencies, big business and the media is driving the panic.  One man is able to shut down 1/3 of air traffic at O'Hara and Midway? The once highly respected Secret Service is dysfunctional.  The VA system is in shambles, the CDC looses deadly samples, the Federal Reserve, bankster system and Wall Street are an insider joke, and the IRS has been criminalized.  The Justice system is nothing more than a legal system used to force political agendas and fatten lawyers pockets.  We now have a President who doesn't attend security briefings when we are suppose to be under continual terror threats.  Police are no longer servents to the community, but revenue generation units more interested in obedience and control of the citizens.  We still haven't stopped all entry into America from these contaminated countries?

The fools in government have appointed crony morons into every leadership position, not based on expertise or experience, but rather than payback, political agendas or sexual orientation.  This, I believe is how great civilizations are destroyed.

"The incompetence and lack of trust in all government agencies, big business and the media is driving the panic."  Agreed, the government's lost credibility limit its ability to be effective in this situation.  They have lied and manipulated too many times, and the public's mutual distrust and hostility are pin-high.  Would you get into the MRAP headed off to the camp?  I would rather die fighting for my family on my own property.  That is precisely the message I must communicate effecitvely to anyone who is part of a 'knock' team calling at my door.  If they persist, I will do everything in my power to end the lives of those who would do me harm.

No one trusts anyone in govt except the trust in the FED.  The vast majority of investors have 100% faith in their ability to always move the stock market forward.  How else than to explain the last few years?

Actually, dipshit, this is exactly how they die. As a bonus, many employed disinformative fucking losers and spies like the Mauryan Empire of India to maintain control. Rome died this way, so did countless others. Take your inane lack of intelligence and troll the boards of Yahoo. This comment board shows just how the general populace will question. Yes, the sky is falling. It's been for sometime. Anyone with a set of eyes can see that.

Ask yourself what is the one common denominator that binds all of those agency's together.

With the federal government you have had decades of minorities and women being hired because they were minorities and
women and whatever else the "diversity" flavor of the day was. Over decades they were promoted on the same basis to supervisory positions. Now they are in charge and totally clueless, having neither competency or ethics.

 I'm curious here... If a mosquito bites someone infected with Ebola, and then bites me hours or a day later, can it transmit the virus to me?

yogibear's picture

"If a mosquito bites someone infected with Ebola"

The government is probably really fearful of telling the truth. It would shut down commerce.

Mi Naem's picture

I think that's a real good question.  I remember wondering the same about AIDS way back in the early/mid eighties when it was first becoming known.  Course, AIDS is too environmentally sensitive and unstable to be transmitted that way. 

But, Ebola? 

SmallerGovNow2's picture

Yen, if it can be transmitted contaminated sweat getting in your eye i would think the answer to that is YES...

SteveGennisonBallWasher's picture

No, but that "no" is unlikely.

Bastiat's picture

Depends on whether the mosquito is wearing a condom.

Seriously -- it seems yes the virus would be in any trace of the blood or plasma on or in the mosquito.  The question is how long could it live in those environments and how long until the mosquito bites again.

Overflow-admin's picture

"[...]Female mosquitoes bite because they need protein found in blood to develop their eggs. They choose their targets through a combination of smell, heat and visual cues, and continue seeking bloodmeals until their abdomens are full. The females can live up to about a month and feed every two or three nights during that time[...]"

"[...]Ebolavirus dried onto glass, polymeric silicone rubber, or painted aluminum alloy is able to survive in the dark for several hours under ambient conditions (between 20 and 250C(*) and 30–40% relative humidity) (amount of virus reduced to 37% after 15.4 hours), but is less stable than some other viral hemorrhagic fevers (Lassa)[...]"

"[...]membrane-bound RNA viruses: Arenaviridae (Argentine HF (Junin), Bolivian HF (Machupo) and Lassa fever viruses), Filoviridae (Ebola and Marburg viruses), "Hantaviridae" (HF with renal syndrome-nephropathia endemica), and arboviruses: Bunyaviridae (Rift Valley fever, Crimean-Congo HF viruses) and Flaviviridae (Kyasanur Forest disease and Omsk HF viruses). These arboviral HFs are transmitted by ticks or mosquitoes, whereas the others are via rodents, if known at all[...]"

Naaaah, not a chance Ebola could be airborne, mosquitos or not! /sarc

(*) I think that's a typo and they wanted to write 50°C, because Ebolavirus "[...]can be inactivated by heating for 30 minutes to 60 minutes at 60°C, boiling for 5 minutes[...]"

Mi Naem's picture

Overflow-admin, A correct reading of your third quote assures us that "the others are via rodents, if known at all" because Ebola is Filoviral, and NOT arboviral.

Testing via Mosquito Vector in Punta Gorda, Florida
A report from The New England Journal of Medicine reveals that one of the first outbreaks of chronic fatigue syndrome was in Punta Gorda, Florida, back in 1957.(10)   It was a strange coincidence that a week before these people came down with chronic fatigue syndrome, there was a huge influx of mosquitoes.

The National Institutes of Health claimed that the mosquitoes came from a forest fire 30 miles away. The truth is that those mosquitoes were infected in Canada by Dr Guilford B. Reed at Queen’s University. They were bred in Belleville, Ontario, and taken down to Punta Gorda and released there.

Within a week, the first five cases ever of chronic fatigue syndrome were reported to the local clinic in Punta Gorda. The cases kept coming until finally 450 people were ill with the disease.

Okay, now that made me LOL.

It was Dengue. Of course these patients were fatigued, they were up all night for a month sweating their balls off.

Barnaby's picture

I'm not an entomologist but I do know there is a barrier between gut, and saliva factories.

That said, a mozzy full of ebama blood, swatted on a cut or open wound could be a human vector. Maybe we can get Adam Savage to test it on his hit show Mythbuthters.

If the answer to mine is no, the answer to your's is yes.

The conspiracy theory of intentional western power causation of Ebola outbreak currently underway is evidently now mainstreaming in Liberia:

Yes, blame whitey!

Africans never had anything else going for them, so they might as well play the race card any time anything bad ever happens. Easier to play the perpetual victim than deal with your shortcomings and actually do something about your problems.

Mi Naem's picture

Now there's a white boy with a chip on his shoulder, just like summa dem darkies. 

It's really not about their African color or anybody else's.  The suggestion is about pervasive oligachical psychopathology, and the Libyan mainstream press is beginning to report on it.
