There Seems To Be Growing Concern About Biological Attacks: What Do They Know That We Don't?

Authored by Daisy Luther via The Organic Prepper blog,

One thing I have learned after being involved in alternative journalism for all these years is that coincidences often lead toward some concrete event. Recently, some coincidences I have noticed have been related to biological attacks.

It’s always rather subtle but there are definitely patterns that can sometimes lead up to large, horrifying events. Now, the good news is that this is not always the case. Sometimes, there are genuinely unrelated events that mean absolutely nothing. But, I still believe it’s important to pay attention, don’t you?

It’s important to note that biological attacks are nothing new.

  • In 2001, the anthrax attacks through the U.S. mail infected 11 people with inhalational anthrax, of which five died. An additional 11 people were infected with cutaneous (skin) anthrax, of which there were no fatalities.

  • In the 1990s, the cult Aum Shinrikyo failed in attempts to release anthrax and botulinum toxin in Tokyo but did succeed in a chemical attack with Sarin nerve agent.

  • In 1984, the cult followers of Baghwan Shree Rajneesh sickened 751 people in Oregon by placing salmonella bacteria in salad bars in 10 restaurants to keep people from voting in an election.

  • In World War II, Unit 731 in Japanese-occupied Manchuria dropped plague-infected fleas in China, allegedly resulting in more than 50,000 deaths.

  • In World War I, German agents successfully infected Allied livestock with anthrax and glanders.

  • In the 1340s, Europeans threw plague-infected cadavers over city walls to infect those within.

Now, however, the biological attacks are a lot more sophisticated. And over the past year, there’s been quite a lot of talk about biological attacks. Let’s take a look.

July 2018: The FDA has approved a smallpox drug.

Last week, the FDA announced that they had approved TPOXX as the first drug to treat smallpox. Now, the FDA approves new medications all the time, but what makes this so interesting is the fact that smallpox has been completely eradicated. The last natural case occurred in 1977. It was eradicated through a vaccination program, but the vaccine proved dangerous.

It has the potential to cause serious, even deadly, side effects. And not everyone can receive the vaccine. As Peter J. Hotez, dean of Baylor College of Medicine’s National School of Tropical Medicine, told the New York Times, we can’t give the smallpox vaccine to people who are pregnant, H.I.V. positive, undergoing cancer treatments, or with other health conditions. (source)

Here’s what the FDA had to say about TPOXX in a press statement:

“To address the risk of bioterrorism, Congress has taken steps to enable the development and approval of countermeasures to thwart pathogens that could be employed as weapons. Today’s approval provides an important milestone in these efforts. This new treatment affords us an additional option should smallpox ever be used as a bioweapon,” said FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb, M.D. “This is the first product to be awarded a Material Threat Medical Countermeasure priority review voucher. Today’s action reflects the FDA’s commitment to ensuring that the U.S. is prepared for any public health emergency with timely, safe and effective medical products.” (source)

It’s important to note that although the virus was declared eradicated in 1980 by the World Health Organization, there are at least two stores of the virus (that we know of.) One is in the US and the other is in Russia. Of course, we have no way of knowing if some kind of rogue nation or terror cell has somehow managed to acquire the virus.

One small outbreak that occurred since the last natural case happened n 1978 in Birmingham, England.

The 1978 smallpox outbreak in the United Kingdom claimed the life of Janet Parker (1938–1978), a British medical photographer, who became the last recorded person to die from smallpox. Her illness and death, which was connected to the deaths of two other people, led to an official government inquiry and triggered radical changes in how dangerous pathogens were studied in the UK. The government inquiry into Parker’s death by R.A. Shooter found that while working at the University of Birmingham Medical School, she was accidentally exposed to a strain of smallpox virus that had been grown in a research laboratory on the floor below her workplace, and that the virus had most likely spread from that laboratory through ducting. (source)

Of course, anyone who read “The Stand” by Stephen King knows how these accidents can turn into something awful. And of course, we all know that it isn’t impossible for an incident to occur as long as these viruses still exist.

The disease is truly horrifying.

Smallpox is among the world’s most feared diseases. By some estimates, the virus killed more people than every other infectious disease combined, and more than triple the number killed in every war in the 20th century.

“Smallpox was clearly the most serious infectious disease that mankind has endured over history,” says Dr. D.A. Henderson, who led the international effort that eradicated smallpox in 1977.

The virus can spread easily from one person to the next. History shows it hides in the body for about a week before erupting in a burning fever, convulsions, throbbing pain and terrible blisters all over the body.

“What is particularly disturbing to the patient, certainly, is that they’re inside of the mouth and over the tongue,” Henderson says. “So he has trouble eating, and he has trouble drinking. It’s probably the most horrible disease you can imagine.”

About a third of victims die. Many survivors are left scarred and, sometimes, blind. (source)

I wouldn’t have read quite so much into the appearance of this new drug except for a story out of Germany.

June 2018: Germany just thwarted a biological terror attack.

It was announced last month that a man who arrested in Cologne, Germany was plotting a deadly terror attack.

The 29-year-old Tunisian man arrested last week in Cologne was creating a deadly biological weapon he intended to use for a terrorist attack somewhere in the country. Where exactly is still unknown, and is one of several issues still being scrutinized by investigators.

“There were very concrete preparations for such an act using, if you will, a biological bomb,” Holger Münch, president of Germany’s Federal Criminal Police Office, the BKA, told public broadcaster RBB. “This is a first in Germany.”

Various Islamist groups, Mr. Münch noted, have published instructions on the internet on how to make biological weapons from the deadly toxin ricin. “Obviously, this person was following these (instructions),” he said.

Sief Allah H., whose last name wasn’t revealed in line with German privacy laws, had already begun to produce ricin from castor seeds, according to Mr. Münch. The seeds and components required to build an explosive device were also found in his apartment. (source)

Ricin is incredibly deadly. Just a few milligrams of the powder is enough to be lethal if the substance is injected, inhaled or swallowed.

December 2017: North Korea was found to be working with Anthrax

Everyone remembers the video of the North Korean defector who risked his life to make a run for freedom across the border to South Korea in a hail of gunfire last year.

But what you may not recall is the fact that the man had high levels of anthrax antibodies in his system, which means he had to have either been exposed to or vaccinated against the deadly toxin. This sparked fears that another report was true: that North Korean researchers were trying to figure out how to send an anthrax-tipped missile to the US.

The North Korean regime has started tests with a view to loading intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) with anthrax, according to regional media reports.

Japanese newspaper Asahi Shimbun reported Tuesday that Pyongyang had undertaken heat and pressure resistance tests, citing an intelligence source in South Korea…

…the Trump administration released its National Security Strategy, which warned North Korea was “pursuing chemical and biological weapons which could also be delivered by missile.”

It read: “North Korea—a country that starves its own people—has spent hundreds of millions of dollars on nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons that could threaten our homeland.” (source)

If the talks between President Trump and Kim Jong Un were indeed effective, perhaps this is something about which we no longer need to be concerned.

October 2017: DHS Announced Plans for a Biological Attack Drill in Oklahoma

Last October, the Department of Homeland Security announced that they were planning a drill in Oklahoma near the border of Kansas.

The first drill starts in January and continues into February of next year at two buildings within the Chilocco Indian Agricultural School (Chilocco campus) in Newkirk, Kay County, Oklahoma.  The location is about 6-miles south of Arkansas City, Kansas. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science & Technology Directorate (S&T) plans to release low-levels of inert chemicals and biological stimulant materials simulating a biological attack on critical infrastructure. S&T is studying the penetration capabilities of a biological stimulant against resident buildings.

DHS’s strategical goal for the operation is to “detect and recover from biological attacks and inform and support biodefense planning, response, and restoration, particularly in consequence/risk assessment modeling of the indoor hazards posed by outdoor aerosols”. (source)

After a public outcry of the release of “harmless” chemicals, the DHS suspended the drill.

…the Department of Homeland Security suspended the plan for chemical testing at Chilocco Indian School…

…According to a published 58-page assessment of the testing, researchers would have been releasing inert chemicals into the air and measuring how much of them penetrate the buildings on site.

The department says the test would have determined how protected people would be when staying inside if biological agents are used in a terror attack.

The government insisted the chemicals were harmless. (source)

The concern seems to be growing

One thing is obvious. The concern over a biological attack seems to be increasing with reports every couple of months about threats and preparations. It begs the question, what do they know about this that we don’t?

The DHS has released information about the possibility.

A biological attack is the intentional release of a pathogen (disease causing agent) or biotoxin (poisonous substance produced by a living organism) against humans, plants, or animals. An attack against people could be used to cause illness, death, fear, societal disruption, and economic damage. An attack on agricultural plants and animals would primarily cause economic damage, loss of confidence in the food supply, and possible loss of life. It is useful to distinguish between two kinds of biological agents:

  • Transmissible agents that spread from person to person (e.g., smallpox, Ebola) or animal to animal (e.g., foot and mouth disease).
  • Agents that may cause adverse effects in exposed individuals but that do not make those individuals contagious to others (e.g., anthrax, botulinum toxin). (source)

In such an attack, you could be in a technology vacuum. Cell towers may be shut down to reduce the possibility of remote detonations of other devices. At least in the UK, there is a plan in place to shut down“unhelpful information” on the internet.

The important thing to remember is that in this and any other type of terror situation, you’ll be completely on your own. The things you learn ahead of time may be the only information you have available to deal with a situation. Here is a link to the fact sheet the DHS created about the potential of biological threats.

Let me tell y’all fuckers why. There is a generation of highly trained molecular biologists, geneticists, and genomics technicians that are supremely underemployed like textile workers were in the 80’s and 90’s. And guess what, unlike them, the unemployed STEM men that can’t find jobs can seriously fuck shit up. The dirty secret is that bio isn’t hard. Cloning, virus manipulation, bacterial engineering is basic undergrad stuff. It just takes one disgruntled asshole and a rogue state to realize their potential.

You bet your ass.  Actually don't...if you get cholera, you will need every square inch.

Time to run this out again:

 

Most Americans have bought into vaccinations as a 'necessary evil', even to the point of being open to FORCED vaccinations in the event of a pandemic due to an erroneous belief in 'herd immunity' which supposedly magically protects everyone. I believe that this is THE primary means by which governments will introduce a soft martial law, because the public will believe it is necessary 'for the common good'. And this can be instituted with impunity via police roadside checkpoints, forced entry into homes, mandatory evacuation into FEMA camps etc. with little pushback.

For the record, I have a Master's degree in Molecular Biology and Genetics (UT Houston, 2000). I got my degree while studying Anthrax, and I was paid on a CIA grant. While there I learned many, many disturbing things about our government 'bioterror' program, including the farce that was Kenema National Labs in Sierra Leone, Africa. Suffice it to say, that if there IS any disease outbreak, it will definitely be some bug that was developed in that lab (or a similar one) that will be featured.

It isn't by accident that Legionnaire's Disease; Ebola; Marburg; AIDS and other such diseases have grabbed headlines since 1975 - when the lab started to really get going.

'Oh, it's just the locals eating bush meat', they'd say when there was an outbreak. 'Lets make a vaccine to protect them!' Well, it was the vaccines that CAUSED those problems to begin with.

Several things to think about concerning that lab: why is that facility in Africa, and not in the USA? Most would say, 'well, DUH, that's where the diseases are!' And there is truth to that, but the real reasons are that - 1. the government there is bought and paid for, with no oversight on the lab; 2. the people there are not well educated, which leads to 3. they have been even more brainwashed into the need for vaccinations, leading to a perfect source of willing guinea pigs.

Also, there is little media presence there, so when 'breakouts' DO happen, they can be attributed to 'those careless bush people' instead of there being any real investigations which would show that those exhibiting symptoms almost ALWAYS were vaccinated with the VERY SAME THING THEY CAME DOWN WITH.

And one more thing about Kenema National Labs: back during the Ebola scare, there was a man from the World Health Organization who investigated that lab by the name of Glenn Thomas. He apparently had discovered some unsettling things and was going to report them, but unfortunately he just 'happened' (along with many prominent microbiologists) to be on flight MH17 when it went down. Conveniently, it turned out. And not long after that, that lab was quietly shuttered.

So anyway, that's my long-winded take on why this is not merely fear-mongering; it is PART OF THE PLAN. And it would be best to be both aware of it and prepared for it when it happens.

And a link that shows just how evil our government really is:

Yes, Zionism. It's contagious and eventually lethal. First isolated in the late 1800s it has spread across the world.

Prior to a victim's death, it sends them mad with possessive delusions of grandeur and a desire to cheat and lie to everybody else to fulfil an intoxication of power and control over the lives of others.

There is no known cure for this condition and the only known cure is to terminate the host and cremate the remains.

I can't use the "k" word where I work, but I have practiced my line for when they tell us to line up and take it in the ass:

"Not only do I quit RIGHT NOW, but if *anyone* EVER tries to 'vaccinate' me against my will, I will resist with EXTREME PREJUDICE"...and I won't particularly care whether or not that statement is 'politically correct'.

 Bullshit honest people with real world skills dont roll that way.

 Thats been one of the clearest clues about the so called war on terror. People like me know how things actually work on the nuts and bolts level. If I wanted to fuck a city or culture up it really would not be all that hard for me to pull it off. On a tiny budget too.

 Ever here the story of Bandana man?

If the oligarchs get their backs to the wall they would give us ebolaherpasyphilitis without blinking an eye.  Hopefully if that ever happens troops loyal to the US people surround those places for security purposes immediately, also the nukes.  They didn't experiment on our dime with this illegal bio agents for nearly a century to do acts of kindness.  They risked the lives of the entire human race for more power.

After a hundred years how much out there is theirs?  Oh wait, we don't have a clue.  People just assume that either they wouldn't or they couldn't.  Wrong!  How many low level bio-agents have we already experienced as individuals?  Those flus that went around Russia, the Ukraine and China a while back are a given. 

Oh yeah, and the Aimes strain anthrax mentioned in this article that was sent to Patriot Act opposition and others with letters saying "Death to America.  Allah is great", twenty years before THE US GOVERNMENT WAS BUSTED WITH ISRAEL SUPPORTING THE TERRORISTS.  Oh yeah, then when all the colleagues of the framed guy started coming to his defense saying he didn't have access etc., they suicided him.  Perrrrrrfect...

Holy shit, this stuff is enough to drive you nuts.

Lyme Disease, associated co-infections and related immune-disorders. For decades, and until recently, the medical industry kept stating Lyme Disease was "regionally" confined to the northeast, and/or barely existed at all. Then the CDC had to admit that annually at least 10X as many people were being infected than officially reported and it wasn't regionally confined!

http://www.actionlyme.org/DICKSON_FDA_TEXT.htm

(2006-2007) CDC: At Least A Third (1/3) Of Ticks Tested In Cook & Lake Counties (Chicago) Were Confirmed Carriers Of B. Burgdorferi

"Spirochetes were recovered from 21 (32%) of 65 ticks and 40 (37%) of 107 ticks collected from sites in Cook and Lake counties, respectively. In addition, PCR using primers specific for outer surface protein A (5) confirmed that the spirochetes were B. burgdorferi."

Interestingly the US has a YUGE epidemic of autoimmune disease which can come in countless forms.  We have more than anybody.  Most people who have an autoimmune disease don't even know it.  For example pretty much all thyroid disease is autoimmune (unless it's radiation but maybe even then).  Often they will treat it the same regardless so they don't bother to tell you. 

So, where the hell is this all coming from?  Why are our body's immune systems attacking our own tissues?  Even diabetes can be autoimmune.  Often having autoimmune disease calls for special diets to be careful not to mimic any of the bodies attacked tissues and proteins, so why don't they tell people their conditions could be, or definitely are autoimmune?  Also the diseases are labeled based on what tissue the body attacks rather then the general problem of the body attacking itself and causing inflamation, but if the body is attacking itself isn't it all the same disease only with differentiated symptoms?  Something isn't right with all of it.

A few autoimmune diseases and I'll refrain from putting the standard "autoimmune" in front of every one:

Alopecia, Hepatitis,  pancreatitis, celiacs, multiple sclerosis, dermatitis, lupus, fibromyalgia, Grave's, Gullian Barre, Hashimoto's, hemolytic anemia, rheumatoid and juvenile arthritis, psoriasis, cirrhosis, fibrosis, rheumatic fever, endometriosis, countless diseases with the term "inflammatory", on and on and on...  

Also on a side note, the autoimmune forms of dementia progress much faster than the B12 deficiency or the standard one and there are like five different labels for the autoimmune caused dementia now.  They also kill.  This is ridiculous.

The latest food-fad fasting propaganda is now claiming that one meal a day, which allows for the mythical "ketosis" will cure most auto-immune issues, cancer(all of it!!), diabetes, produce instant high-speed weight loss, save kittens, bring about world peace and allow lambs to lie down with lions, sheep with wolves, and Protestant and Catholic Irishmen will bury their differences. I exaggerate, but you get the point, I hope. No idea if it is true, but the new pseudo-science looks compelling. OMAD is the new buzzword du jour.

getting away with a false flag will be tough.  There's 10's of thousands of intelligent independent researchers and journalists who will spend night and day trying to expose it on the internet.  And of course there will be the occasional insider who grows a conscience and feeds info to these types of people.  We throw around the word "sheeple" but I think lots of people are skeptical and tired of this fighting and crap.

Dream on Dingleberry. They got away with 9/11 despite all the physically impossible and obvious contradictions to the "official" story. You vastly overestimate the intelligence of the 'Merican public who still believe the bullshit they are fed on the MSM TeeVee. Most people are herd animals (sheeple) who go along with the crowd instead of thinking for themselves.

A widespread outbreak of ebola or similar will allow the government to prohibit all travel, lock down populations, stop all unauthorized broadcasts, internet access etc, all for the good of the people. Government approved food rationing distribution points will provide complete reliance on the state, and the population is in one glorious move completely captured, and happy to be so. 

Initially.

I sometime think all the avian flu, pig flu etc is just to desensitize us to a real problem.
So we react slower.
Other than my usual bullshit, there are machines now which let morons edit DNA, so we aren't to far from someone weaponizing Ebola or some such.

Good to hear there is finally a new smallpox vaccine. The one vaccination no one gets, anymore, unless you work for a government lab.

Hey, still reading the Foundation series, by Azimov. Finally got a copy of "Second Foundation" at the library today. I am concurrently reading a newly discovered prepper series by A. American. Excellent. Takes place in Florida. He really shows how people are completely fucking unprepared, even those that live in rural areas. FFS everyone should have a 25-pound bag of rice and and equivalent amount of dry beans in their house. Heads up, the book is graphic and violent, comparable to a few scenes in Matt Bracken's series, Enemies Foreign and Domestic. I mean graphic.

I am really becoming a fan of living a low profile life. Are you going to feed your neighbor's when their pantry is bare after two days? What if they have crying kids? Who is going to survive? Having a small air / pellet rifle or .22 rifle would make it easier for people to at least take down small game and birds. A few traps for rats are a good idea. Same for as much salt as you can store. Fuck, if I had the space I would probably store 500-to-1000 pounds of salt and keep it on hand. If there is ever an EMP it is the best way to preserve meat. Smoke and salt. And you need a fucking lot of salt. I am going to be adding one of those country-style hams that are air dried. A couple. Same for dry cured sausages and salami. Stuff that you can store for a year or two without refrigeration. Just throw it in your pantry and once you use it up buy another to keep on hand. Oh, becoming a fan of farro, a type of wheat that is minimally processed. Boil like pasta until tender to your taste. Good warm or cold. Not as fragile as flour which can go rancid.

Stay frosty, my friends.

YES.  *Great* book.  And that kind of thing happens ROUTINELY, sometimes even with prior planning and malice.  Just look at what Monsanto did with their fucking "Round-up Ready" seeds on their 'experimental plots':  if any took root in farmer's fields downwind, they sued that farmer for growing their shit without a license. Evil in the extreme...
