Ebola In U.S. : Disease Is Living In An American Doctor's Eye

Quack "doctor" puts own life ahead of everyone in America, violating the Hippocratic oath and all standard medical quarantine protocols to save his own ass and it was OBAMA, and the lying, murdering CDC that let him in

Ebola first came to America with Thomas Eric Duncan, a Liberian man who died in Dallas on 8 October. Then, two nurses who treated Duncan were infected, but recovered — the only two cases of the virus contracted within the borders of the United States. While other Ebola cases have cropped up, they are typically brought to the Western hemisphere by health or humanitarian workers toiling in the African nations Ebola has hit hardest.


Yet, according to a recent report in the New England Journal of Medicine, Ebola is still on US shores — in the eye of a doctor who contracted the disease in Africa, but recovered. The study, “Persistence of Ebola Virus in Ocular Fluid during Convalescence,” highlights the toll Ebola takes on patients like Ian Crozier who survive, and points to what we still don’t know about the epidemic.

In September 2014, Crozier, 44, was a World Health Organization volunteer working in an Ebola treatment unit in Sierra Leone. 


He was diagnosed with the disease and, days later, transported to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta. Put on a ventilator and dialysis, he lost 30 pounds, and doctors said the virus had impacted his brain function and ability to walk. But, like most who made it home to the United States, he survived.

More than a month passed. Then, it seemed, Crozier was better. His blood and urine tested negative for the virus. His semen, however, tested positive, so he was told to abstain from sex or use condoms for a few months.


Coward, quack "doctor" Ian Crozier should have
medical license pulled, be prosecuted for bringing
Ebola into the United States
Soon, he started to notice other symptoms. He went back to the hospital with blurred vision as well as increased pressure and acute pain in his left eye. Perhaps strangest, his eye colour had changed from blue to green. “It was like an assault,” he told the New York Times. “It was so personal.”

The cause: Ebola in the eye. Not only was Crozier’s sight at risk, but doctors who had treated him worried they had contracted and spread the virus. After all, Crozier was supposed to be cured; an eye doctor who drew fluid from Crozier’s eye had not worn protective gear. 


The opthamalogist put himself into a kind of mini-quarantine, limiting his contact with his family and sleeping in a guest room at home. Surfaces at test labs were disinfected.

No additional Ebola was found, but the fear was back.

“This case highlights an important complication of [Ebola virus disease] with major implications for both individual and public health that are immediately relevant to the ongoing West African outbreak,” Jay Varkey of Emory University Hospital and his colleagues wrote in the journal.




Crozier’s not alone. Ebola survivors in West Africa have reported lingering or new symptoms months later — headaches and chronic pain as well as eye issues.

“We’re seeing symptoms in patients who’ve been out of the treatment unit for up to nine months,” John Fankhauser, the medical director of a hospital in Monrovia, told the New York Times. “They’re still very severe and impacting their life every day.”


CDC liars gave the go-ahead for importation
of infected quacks back into the U.S. for
treatment knowing full well the risk of spread
Ebola may have found refuge in patients’ eyes because, researchers said, the eye is walled off from the immune system. As the New York Times put it: “The barriers are not fully understood, but they include tightly packed cells in minute blood vessels that keep out certain cells and molecules, along with unique biological properties that inhibit the immune system.” This phenomenon is called “immune privilege” — and it means the eye can harbor viruses. Other immune privileged organs include the brain and testicles. Indeed, doctors knew semen could contain Ebola longer than the blood, but may be just now finding out how long the virus can survive in the body — and how it behaves after patients are “cured.”


In March, doctors diagnosed a woman in Liberia and identified only one plausible link to her exposure: unprotected sex with a male Ebola survivor, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Previously, the CDC advised male survivors to avoid sex or use condoms for three months. 

Based on this new case, it now urges them to abstain from unprotected sex indefinitely. The agency has also posted a FAQ about whether pets can contract or transmit Ebola. And, in some circumstances, the disease may even become airborne, according to one study.




“There was almost a rush to ensure the public that we knew a lot more than we did,” Michael T. Osterholm, an epidemiologist at the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota who wrote a New York Times op-ed about airborne transmission, told The Washington Post’s Lenny Bernstein last year. “But we’re saying you can’t rule out respiratory transmission.”

By most accounts, casual contact with Crozier and other Ebola survivors poses no health risk.




“I want to emphasize that as far as we know, the Ebola virus is not transmitted by casual contact,” the American Academy of Opthamology said in a statement. “The current study does not suggest that infection can be transmitted through contact with tears or the ocular surface of patients who have recovered from their initial infection.”

Since December 2013, the outbreak in West Africa has infected more than 26,000 people. More than 11,000 have died, the CDC said. But the good news: Liberia, the worst-affected country, plans to declare an end to the outbreak, as the Associated Press reported. And, although Crozier has not completely recovered, his vision is improving.

Al Jazeera Islamabad Bureau Chief Put On Terror List By U.S.

CIA Al Jazeera frauds and spies continue to be exposed  

RT
05/08/2014

A veteran journalist who has interviewed Osama bin Laden and for years managed Al Jazeera’s news bureau in Islamabad, Pakistan, has been put on terrorist list by the United States, according to new documents.


Al Jazeera packed with CIA spies posing as "journalists"
Top-secret national security documents obtained by The Intercept through former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden show that Ahmad Muaffaq Zaidan was the subject of American surveillance as recently as 2012.

In June of that year, the NSA produced a classified presentation in which Zaidan appears listed as a member of both Al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood.


Beneath his alleged affiliation with those groups, the NSA notes Zaidan also “works for Al Jazeera.” 

In the same slide, though, it also knows that the journalist is listed in TIDE: the “Terrorist Identities Datamart Environment” database maintained by the US.

Speaking to The Intercept ahead of the outlet’s report on the slideshow, published Friday, Zaidan “absolutely” denied any membership with either Al-Qaeda or the Muslim Brotherhood, but acknowledged that his lengthy career in journalism has required him to view controversial figures throughout Afghanistan and Pakistan. 


Al Jazeera CIA dupe Zaidan (right) went "off the reservation," angering CIA handlers

Indeed, Zaidan interviewed bin Laden, the former Al-Qaeda leader, twice before the September 11, 2001 terror attacks and was later provided audio recordings through an apparent courier containing messages from the terrorist.

“For us to be able to inform the world, we have to be able to freely contact relevant figures in the public discourse, speak with people on the ground and gather critical information. Any hint of government surveillance that hinders this process is a violation of press freedom and harms the public’s right to know,” Zaidan told The Intercept. “To assert that myself, or any journalist, has any affiliation with any group on account of their contact book, phone call logs, or sources is an absurd distortion of the truth and a complete violation of the profession of journalism.”


Fraud Al Jazeera "journalist" Peter Greste, convicted of 
terrorism charges in Egypt after inciting Muslim
Brotherhood to riot was freed only after massive bribes
were paid for his release
A spokesman for Al Jazeera told The Intercept that the revelation concerning surveillance of Zaidan demonstrates “yet another attempt at using questionable techniques to target our journalists” and amounts to “a gross breach of press freedom.” According to The Intercept, the NSA slides that provide the fodder for their latest article relate to a US program named SKYNET. 


Through that endeavor, the intelligence community takes the metadata of phone call records already collected in bulk and analyzes them to infer suspicious activity.


Al Jazeera whore Sue Turton also convicted in 
Egyptian court for terrorism and inciting Muslim
Brotherhood to revolt, causing hundreds of deaths
In a statement, the Committee to Protect Journalists said it was “deeply troubled” by the Intercept’s report, with Bob Dietz, CPJ’s Asia program coordinator, adding: “Coloring the legitimate newsgathering activities of a respected journalist as evidence of international terrorism risks chilling the vital work of the media.”

The slides published on Friday show that the NSA believed Zaidan was likely a member of Al Qaeda given that his movements, as revealed through metadata, resembled that of couriers used by the terrorist group. 



In the US, meanwhile, a federal appeals court ruled Thursday that the NSA was never authorized to collect metadata of American-placed phone calls pursuant to the government’s interpretation of a Patriot Act provision, also revealed through Snowden.

Australia PM Adviser Says Climate Change Is "UN - Led Ruse To Establish New World Order"

Hilarious coming from the very same criminals that imposed a "carbon tax" in the first place; Ban Ki-moon couldn't find his ass with both hands, let alone contemplate taking over the world - bogus "carbon tax" scam was all about a massive worldwide scheme by the "elite" and IMF to further pauperise the middle classes and poor as oil and the taxation that goes with it circles the drain, bogus "austerity" exposed for the massive theft that it is    

THE TELEGRAPH

Climate change is a hoax developed as part of a secret plot by the United Nations to undermine democracies and takeover the world, a top adviser to Tony Abbott, Australia’s prime minister, has warned.


Elephant-eared, anteater-nosed idiot PM spouting new
Maurice Newman, the chief business adviser to the prime minister, said the science showing links between human activity and the warming climate was wrong but was being used as a “hook” by the UN to expand its global control.

“This is not about facts or logic. It’s about a new world order under the control of the UN,” he wrote in The Australian.

“It is opposed to capitalism and freedom and has made environmental catastrophism a household topic to achieve its objective.” 


Born in Ilford, England, and educated in Australia, Mr Newman, a staunch conservative and former chairman of the Australian Stock Exchange, has long been an outspoken critic of climate change science.

He was appointed chairman of the government’s business advisory council by Mr Abbott, who himself is something of a climate change sceptic and once famously described climate change as “absolute cr**” – a comment he later recanted.


Nutless, gutless, neutered UN chief can't tie his own shoes, let alone take over the world

In his comment piece – described by critics as “whacko” – Mr Newman said the world has been “subjected to extravagance from climate catastrophists for close to 50 years”.

“It’s a well-kept secret, but 95 per cent of the climate models we are told prove the link between human CO2 emissions and catastrophic global warming have been found, after nearly two decades of temperature stasis, to be in error,” he wrote.


Obama the real driving force behind climate taxation, 
as oil tax revenues decline exponentially along with
the drop in price
“The real agenda is concentrated political authority. Global warming is the hook. Eco-catastrophists [ ...] have captured the UN and are extremely well funded. They have a hugely powerful ally in the White House.”

Environmental groups and scientists described Mr Newman as a 'crazed’ conspiracy theorist and some called on him to resign.

“His anti-science, fringe views are indistinguishable from those made by angry trolls on conspiracy theory forums,” said the Climate Change Council.


Professor Will Steffen, a climate change scientist, told The Australian Financial Review: “These are bizarre comments that would be funny if they did not come from [Mr Abbott’s] chief business adviser.” Mr Abbott’s office did not respond but his environment minister said he did not agree with Mr Newman’s comments.

The article was written by Mr Newman to coincide with a visit by Christiana Figueres, the UN climate change negotiation, who has urged Australia to reduce its reliance on coal. Australia is one of the world’s biggest emitters of carbon emissions per capita.


Moon in any event would much rather party with Psy than take on the rigours of world dictatorship

Since his election in 2013, Mr Abbott has abolished Labor’s carbon tax, scaled back renewable energy targets and appointed sceptics to several significant government positions.

Americans Living Abroad Set Record For Giving Up Citizenship

American expats should be very circumspect about renouncing their citizenship especially recipients of Social Security, Veterans disability and military retirees; U.S. journalists should also be aware that surrendering citizenship also removes protections that U.S. passport provides  

BLOOMBERG
By Richard Rubin
05/08/2015

More Americans living outside the U.S. gave up their citizenship in the first quarter of 2015 than ever before, according to data released Thursday by the IRS.


Laws may change with new administrations and
prosecutions of IRS, Congress criminals
The 1,335 expatriations topped the previous record by 18 percent, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Those Americans are driven to turn in their passports in part because of laws that have expanded bank reporting and tax compliance requirements for expatriates. The increase in early 2015 follows an annual record in 2014, when 3,415 Americans gave up their citizenship.

An estimated 6 million U.S. citizens are living abroad, and the U.S. is the only country within the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development that taxes citizens wherever they reside.


In many cases, those choosing to give up their citizenship have limited connections to the U.S. and have lived outside of the country for most of their lives. Anyone born in the U.S. automatically receives citizenship, and people born abroad to U.S. parents are typically citizens as well.

For some the decision is easy, because they perceive little benefit from holding U.S. citizenship. For others, the choice is more complicated.

"Highly Distressing"

“The cost of compliance with the complex tax treatment of non-resident U.S. citizens and the potential penalties I face for incorrect filings and for holding non-U.S. securities forces me to consider whether it would be more advantageous to give up my U.S. citizenship,” Stephanos Orestis, a U.S. citizen living in Oslo, wrote in a March 23 letter to the Senate Finance Committee. “The thought of doing so is highly distressing for me since I am a born and bred American with a love for my country.”


U.S. journalists lose protections
London Mayor Boris Johnson, who had a tax dispute with the IRS, said earlier this year that he would give up the U.S. citizenship he received because he was born in New York. 

His name isn’t on the IRS list. Eduardo Saverin, a Brazilian-born co-founder of Facebook Inc., gave up his U.S. citizenship in 2012.



U.S. citizens who live abroad can exclude as much as $100,800 in earned income and in many cases can receive tax credits for payments to foreign governments.
Tax Cheats

The U.S. has increased efforts to catch tax cheats after the Swiss bank UBS AG paid a $780 million penalty in 2009 and handed over data on about 4,700 accounts. That has led some banks to forgo doing business with people who have ties to the U.S.


Laws do not alloy to Lois Lerner, who has proven she
is exempt
One of the primary U.S. moves took effect last year as asset-disclosure rules under the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act kicked in. 

The measure, known as Fatca, requires U.S. financial institutions to impose a 30 percent withholding tax on payments made to foreign banks that don’t agree to identify and provide information on U.S. account holders.

It allows the U.S. to scoop up data from more than 77,000 institutions and 80 governments about its citizens’ overseas financial activities.


The new laws, combined with past rules, can make tax filing difficult for U.S. citizens living overseas who are trying to start businesses or set up trusts, said Andrew Mitchel. He’s an international tax lawyer in Centerbrook, Connecticut, who has been tracking expatriations.

“These are complicated rules, and these are laypeople who don’t really understand the rules,” he said. “It can be tens of thousands of dollars to file tax returns.”




In establishing the 2010 law, Congress and President Barack Obama in effect threatened to cut off banks and other companies from easy access to the U.S. market if they didn’t pass along such information. It was projected to generate $8.7 billion over 10 years, according to the congressional Joint Committee on Taxation.
