Pandemic Update: TB 3x times reported rate in refugees

Refugees with TB

Are you worried about survival.  Then whom did you vote for.  Did you vote the for one who said he’ll stop this madness or did you vote for the one who wanted to raise the numbers 500%?

Common sense here is to keep them out of the country or live where they aren’t.  I’m still looking for the place where they aren’t since our dear leader has dumped these walking petri dishes everywhere.

Movie Review: Contagion (2011)

The movie from 2011
 Image result for contagion movie images

This is a well done movie with some realistic outcomes.  When a lethal pandemic strikes, the government overreacts in some areas and the usual human selfish motives start appearing.  A chief medical officer  of the CDC warns his wife first and try to get out of Chicago and of course she tells others so the rumors spread.  Riots and food shortages begin and battles to get perceived cures and vaccines cause mass panic.

There are millions of casualties worldwide but in this instance a vaccine is found so a happy ending is predicted.

Reality:  We may not  be able to create a timely vaccine if something like this comes along.  What will you do if we have something equivalent to this?

Physical separation from others is the only safe answer.  To accomplish this you need a home that ideally is physically separate as well.  This means one that doesn’t have the possibility of air infiltration from an adjoining home.  Food shopping is not advisable and may not even be possible so would you want to rely on MRE handouts from the government if available.  Lay aside lots of food.

At the end of the movie and at different points you get replays of the vectors that may have caused and spread the disease.

Highly recommended for survival preparation ideas since there are some plausible scenarios in this movie.

Pandemic Update: Zika, the new benefit of open borders, Mosquito Vector diseases rampant in USA

Multiple cases of Zika in USA 12+

Birth defects from Zika virus a big concern 

Zika travel warning and spreading fast

Zika to Spread Throughout Americas

The next big JOY coming out of the 3rd World to your neighborhood is the Zika Virus.  Though it is transmitted by mosquito the obvious fast movement of it throughout the world is by air travel of infected individuals.  Admittedly, there are many stupid Westerners who think they are Indiana Jones and travel to these places where incurable infectious diseases are rampant but also the unending flood of migrants and refugees is fueling the spread of disease.  There are few places left in the USA that do not have mosquito present and with easy movement of goods into port and by truck the introduction of the right kind of bugs only increases the risk that someday you’ll be exposed to something.

A short list of mosquito borne infections now moving through the USA that includes Malaria, Dengue Fever, Rift Valley Fever, Yellow Fever, Chikungunya, and now Zika Virus.

Below are some more links to Mosquito diseases listed by the State of Minnesota.   You think Minnesota and you think cold, but there are mosquito there just like in Alaska.  mosquito borne infections

La Crosse Encephalitis (LAC), 

Jamestown Canyon Virus (JCV) 

St. Louis Encephalitis (SLE)

Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE)

Western Equine Encephalitis (WEE)

What can you do and where can you live to avoid these.

I have to say that the presence of mosquito is probably everywhere but I have visited places where they seem unknown or very limited.  High altitude areas with bitter winters seems to work well though I’m not saying go live in the Mountains just for that reason.   I noticed that even in the hills of the Blue Ridge and Allegheny Mountains you can find mosquito if you’re near a water source while up high where no water stays put I never saw any.  The desert also works except now that men have put in swimming pools and landscaping that makes it possible for the mosquito to thrive in arid climates you really need to pick a place where few standing water locations exist.  Arizona desert maybe.

We once had this situation under control but since the introduction of uncontrolled immigration since 1965 the flow of disease has matched the flow of people.   Welcome to the new world.

Pandemic Update: Chagas disease in US 300k cases, Phantom Menace Superbug

Mosquito is public enemy number one.
New diseases are appearing regularly and are spreading across the planet.  Your only protection is geography and lifestyle.  Screens, insect repellent, insecticides, and air conditioning are your best defense. 

Dog Flu spreads in USA
Losing your pet is one big concern and so is the possibility of jumping species into the human realm.

Chagas disease widespread in USA:  From the kissing bug and a kiss from our unwelcome flood of illegals into the USA.  Open borders, the gift that keeps on giving.

Phantom Menace Superbug now in USA
Add this to the list of ways to die from infections.

Gonorrhea soon not treatable.
This could be good news for reintroduction of Victorian values. 

Two new diseases from the tropics now threaten the world
If things weren’t bad enough on the infectious disease front this list of risks keeps increasing with no ability to cope.  Immigration and jet aircraft just increase the risk.

Forcing American Decline: President Driving the Country to Ruin, Dollar Fade, Dumping Illegals

Russia Holding Talks to Drop Dollar in International Trade
The ham handed approach of the administration has led to a desire of our adversaries to remove the dollar as the international currency.

Obama is driving the country to ruin.
This is not disputable to anyone looking at results.

Administration allows open borders and grants amnesty 
This isn’t just catch and release.  It is catch, redirect, and set loose with promises of money, legal help, and of course a future voting card with a Democrat affiliation to keep the change coming.

Imported Pandemic as diseases cross the border with illegals.
Though the government is tasked with protecting the citizens from outside threats here we have a most obvious threat that is not even considered worth concern.  Bottom line:  They don’t care.

Pandemic Update: Contagion in Middle East, MRSA at home, MERS Virus in USA

 Mosquito borne virus in Palm Beach
Chikungunya is the new entry into the USA courtesy of air travel.  The worry is that we have lost control not only of our borders but the free flow of contagion is now unimpeded and mosquito are some of the most efficient vectors for spreading deadly disease.

Middle East fears of containment for deadly viruses
It keeps happening and it keeps getting worse each time.  Prepare for a spread.

Saudi Health Minister Removed from Post
Here is another victim of this deadly MERS virus though in his case it only cost him his job so far.  It is hard to say if any one person could be held accountable for a viral outbreak such as this.

MRSA in homes in USA
The risk is spreading and will eventually make even the most simple scrape a potential death sentence.  I would like to think this is only a result of antibiotic overuse but the conclusion that we have flooded the country with a hundred million disease carriers always lurks in the background.  Remember, we no longer test immigrants except maybe for TB but that is only the legal ones.  Add the illegals and we are open for a pandemic.

World Headed to Post Antibiotic Era
This spells doom for many simple operations and recovery from injuries.  It makes you want to stay home.

Antibiotic Resistant Infections worse than AIDS Worldwide
This is something to look forward to as we slide into another dark age.

MERS Makes Landfall on U.S. Soil
Good luck if you have bad luck and get infected with it.

2nd MERS case in USA
From Saudi Arabia and allowed into the USA with no health checks.

The dirtiest things in your possession when it comes to infections and how to protect yourself.

Drug Resistant TB

Step into the wrong elevator or get on the wrong airplane and you might pick up a deadly and nearly incurable version of TB. The world is floating in nasty infectious diseases and TB of the antibiotic resistant type will bring us back to the days before antibiotics where catching such a disease is a death sentence. With open borders and no public health agency that really manages such risks we are all just one elevator ride away from wretched death. This alone is why I prefer to travel in cars and stay out of large groups and confined spaces with people.

Here is an story about the alarming rise of drug resistant TB.

New Tick Virus from the Heartland

Here is a new virus that may take the name Heartland Virus since many viruses are named after locations where they are first found. It has some nasty symptoms and as usual is transmitted easily by tick bites. Add this to the growing list of tick infections that doesn’t seem to be important to the government in terms of finding cures or vaccines. Lyme is still the big daddy on the tick disease front due to its widespread distribution and long lasting effects on the neurological system.
