When fear gains control of a family, a business and even a country, rationality is the first causality. If the plan of the globalists is to destroy America through inducing fear over Ebola, they are succeeding.

The loss of reason and rationality with regard to the present Ebola crisis, is looking more and more like the resulting fear will become our undoing as a nation. Americans are on the verge of completing the prime directive of the globalists, namely, the destruction of the nation’s economy leading to a collapse of the country as a whole.


The CDC offered up the latest piece of bad news, announcing that the second infected nurse in Dallas had flown to Cleveland and back a day before developing symptoms. Even before the announcement, two-thirds of the respondents to a Washington Post-ABC News poll said they were concerned about a widespread epidemic of Ebola in this country.

texas hospitalVarious social networks and alternative media sources are reporting that Nina Pham’s boyfriend may have been admitted to a Dallas area hospital. It is not clear whether the individual was showing symptoms of the virus or if he has been quarantined as a precautionary measure. According to NBC DFW, “Texas Health Presbyterian is monitoring the patient based on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention protocol.” This development is serving to ramp up the fear factor associated with the spread of Ebola.

MSNBC Reports On Nurses Claim of Betrayal By Public Health Officials Over Ebola and the Fear Level Is Almost at a Pandemic Level

Within the last several hours, MSNBC has issued the following statement regard to the National Nurses United in which nurses expressed view that their safety has been compromised by a lack of adequate training, access to proper equipment and misinformation from public health authorities.

“Nurses responding to Ebola in the United States have been poorly trained and provided with inadequate equipment, the nurses union National Nurses United (NNU) alleged during a heated conference call on Wednesday. Nurses from all over the country phoned into the call to say that they too felt that they had been given little to no support in anticipation of potential Ebola outbreaks in their states”.

Yesterday, and after a second nurse was diagnosed with Ebola, the directors of the CDC, Dr. Frieden, said the CDC would “have to rethink the way we address Ebola infection control”. Not a very comforting thought given this is who we entrust to protect us from a pandemic. It is almost as if Frieden’s comment is designed to induce fear.

NNU member nurses have clearly stated that they will be willing to picket hospitals in order to call attention to the fact that the nurses are not being provided with adequate equipment and training. Can you imagine the public’s response when they see the very people publicly demonstrating and attesting to the fact that they are not being kept safe from the spread of Ebola? What will this do the public confidence that the American people can trust their government and healthcare system to properly manage the Ebola crisis?  These nurses are threatening to set off a fear pandemic of epic proportions and they should know better.

Fear Spreads Like Anything Else

ten percent factorThroughout my academic career, I have immersed myself in discovering how change occurs. Why do some movements take hold and win the day, while others die on the vine? The answer, coming from the field of social psychology, is surprisingly simple.

Scientists from the prestigious Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have determined that if just 10% of any given population holds to an unshakable idea, that the idea will become adopted by the majority of the country. However, the scientists who belong to the Social Cognitive Networks Academic Research Center (SCNARC) found that if the ideas are shared by less than 10% of the population, the idea will not progress and will eventually die out. The research was first published in a peer reviewed E Journal in an article entitled “Social consensus through the influence of committed minorities.”

With regard to the present crisis, this means that a fear based response must only become a reality for a mere 10% of the population before the fear spreads like a pandemic throughout the country. Even our children are panicking in the face of the Ebola crisis. In my my son’s PE class last week, when they were playing dodge ball, the kids were saying that the ball had Ebola and the intensity of the game greatly increased, as each kid desperately tried to avoid being hit with the “Ebola” ball with great fervor.

Where is all of this heading?

When Going Out In Public Becomes Too Much of a Risk

No Christmas shopping would devastate the economy.
No Christmas shopping would devastate the economy.

As any politician, sociologist or policeman will tell you that the fabric that holds society together is voluntary conformity and trust. Most Americans obey most laws because we understand the importance of societal cooperation as opposed to the dangers of living in a state of anarchy. The other factor that binds society together is trust. One of the key elements of trust in America is that our citizens trust the fact that it is safe to go out in public. And going out in public is where much of America’s economic business is conducted (i.e. restaurants, movie theaters, shopping malls, football games, concerts, etc.).

When Americans lose trust in the belief that it is safe to be in crowds, the impact on our way of life, and especially on our economy, will be catastrophic.

To illustrate just how devastating the effects can be on the economy when people lose trust in the belief that it is safe to go out in public, let’s take a look at the immediate reaction from the citizens of Dallas when only one Ebola case, Thomas Duncan, surfaced in the city.

When moms keep their kids home from school for fear of Ebola, 50 million people will not be going to school, the unemployment rates would climb exponentially because of this one event.
When moms keep their kids home from school for fear of Ebola, 50 million people will not be going to school, the unemployment rates would climb exponentially because of this one event.

When it was announced that Thomas Duncan had contact with some Dallas school children, we saw the immediate impact as Dallas moms began to keep their children home from school. Officials in Louisiana refused to receive Thomas Duncan’s property. Subsequently, and according to the AP and Veolia North America, Duncan’s effects were  disposed of in drums taken from a Dallas apartment where Duncan became ill and were burned at the company’s incinerator in Port Arthur., TX.

It does not matter what I write or what someone broadcasts on their talk show about Ebola, once people perceive there is a threat, even a low-level threat posed by someone like Thomas Duncan, the people will panic. Rationality will not be part of the decision making process. Fear will take over. People will stop going to concerts, movie theaters, cultural events and even sporting events.

What will happen when the nurses really do strike as they are promising to do over a lack of training and the absence of equipment to combat Ebola? What will this do to the public confidence in the healthcare system? Literally, overnight, such an event could cripple the healthcare system.

This is the last thing that America needs to see.
This is the last thing that America needs to see.

How long would police, fire, EMT personnel, hospital personnel, people that service our water supplies and the doctors that service our infirm, stay on the job following an Ebola outbreak of any degree? An examination of this question, by using Hurricane Katrina, as a comparison, tells us that by the third day, virtually all essential  services would be seriously compromised because of personnel defections. In this scenario, how would chronically ill people receive their medications? How would people get emergency appendectomies or other emergency medical procedures?  There will be no “911, what’s your emergency”? The factors that bind society together will quickly unravel as Ebola spreads even on a relatively low level of impact.

If the plan of the globalists is to destroy America through fear over Ebola, they are succeeding.


In its present form, Ebola does not easily spread when compared to other viruses.  Yes, we should be concerned about the spread of  Ebola. Yes, there are clear signs of chicanery and conspiracy in the present handling of the Ebola crisis. Yes, the CDC owns the patent on Ebola and stands to make money on the spreading of the virus. Yes, the Crucell Ebola vaccine, which is eight years old, is being covered up. Yes, the NIH owns the patent on the Crucell Ebola vaccine. Yes, Ebola is airborne and can be transmitted through a limited distances by airborne or aerosolized means. Yes, public enemy number one to the health and welfare of humanity, Bill Gates, did put $560 million dollars in an effort to disseminate the Ebola vaccine far and wide, thus, making it likely that hastily developed and unsafe vaccinations will become mandatory. Yes, the Obama administration refuses to take even the smallest steps to protect the public which would include shutting down the airports from all air travel from West Africa. Despite all of this, the worst contagion that the American people face is fear.

facts not fear

If we allow ourselves to buy into the hysteria like some of the people and nurses are in Dallas, we will fulfill the dream of the globalists and destroy America all on our own because of our fear based response to Ebola which I have now dubbed “FEARBOLA”.

I agree that the thought of Ebola spreading through our country is fearful. However, that fear is being greatly exacerbated by the reckless behavior of the Obama administration, the CDC and the NIH. Americans desperately need to channel our fear into collective action.

Since Obama will not do what any prudent leader should do and shut down air travel out of West Africa to the U.S., we as a people have options. the American people should refuse to fly. If only 10% of country bought into this mentality, airline profits would plummet and the entire industry would be screaming at Obama to do what should be done. The resulting crisis would turn the issue into a ballot box issue. Congressman, who are up for re-election, would be proposing legislation to do what needs to be done in order to keep their cushy jobs. .

Although I do not profess a strong faith in the integrity of our electoral process, we could still vote out all incumbents next month. Diebold voting machines are not constructed to change election results more than 4-5%.

If both nurses and the general public do not channel their fear into collective action against Federal government inaction, the growing level of fear will paralyze this country and our destruction as a nation will not be far behind.

At the end of the day, have nothing to fear, but FEARBOLA itself.
