Seven Hospitalized in C. Diff Outbreak

The Queen Margaret Hospital of Dunfermline now has a seventh patient added to the list of those infected by the C. Diff scourge. Here's more on story from BBC News:

"The outbreak was discovered after patients at ward six of Queen Margaret Hospital, Dunfermline, fell ill.

They tested positive for C.diff after developing diarrhoea on Friday and have all since been nursed in isolation.

Labour MSP Helen Eadie has called for an inquiry into infection control methods in hospitals after a fatal outbreak in West Dunbartonshire.

Nine people died as a result of C.diff, which was a contributory factory in the deaths of a further nine. A total of 55 others were affected by the outbreak at the Vale of Leven hospital.

In the latest outbreak, NHS Fife said relatives of the ill patients had been urged not to visit to help control the spread.

Ms Eadie, the Dunfermline East MSP, said she was "very concerned" at the latest outbreak."


The article does not mention the type of ward the spread of the disease actually began in... its just mentioned vaguely as "ward six." Like I'm supposed to know what that means!

Legionnaires outbreak claims life

From WETM, out of the Twin Tiers in NY/PA:

"ELMIRA -- One of four residents of an Elmira apartment complex who were infected with Legionnaires Disease this week has died, her family said.

Anna Marie Tongate, 75, died Thursday afternoon, three days after she was diagnosed with the bacterial disease. Her family took her to the hospital on Sunday because they felt she was very ill, said Christina Bruner Sonsire, an attorney for the family.

Tongate and three other residents at Flannery Towers displayed flu-like symptoms last week, but the staff did nothing to address the illnesses, Sonsire said in a statement.

Sonsire added her law firm -- Ziff, Weiermiller, Hayden & Mustico -- will investigate how Tongate and three other residents were infected with Legionnaires Disease, and why nobody recognized the problem.

A message was left with the Chemung County Health Department Thursday evening seeking comment on the outbreak."


Sad, the death could probably have been prevented with prompt attention to the situation.

US bioweapons labs threaten Americans

Here's a repost from the LA Times Editorial Blog of a great expose of the US bioweapons program:

"'Whatever you can say about the Soviet bioweapons scientists," a Bush administration official once told me, "they never killed anyone."

We can't say the same about our bioweapons scientists. Someone, most likely Bruce Ivins, at the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases at Ft. Detrick, Md., turned powdered anthrax spores into a deadly weapon. It's ironic that the Soviet scientists were making offensive weapons. Our people, since 1969, have worked strictly to defend us.

One of those defenders killed five people, sickened 17 others and plunged the nation into hysteria for weeks in the fall of 2001. After a seven-year investigation by the FBI, the source of the deadly anthrax strain has been identified -- our own biodefense program at Ft. Detrick. That is the real legacy of the FBI investigation.

Since the anthrax-laced letters were mailed in September and October of 2001, U.S. biodefense has blown up out of all proportion to any rational assessment of the bioweapons threat. Earlier this year, an article in the journal Biosecurity and Bioterrorism, analyzing government biodefense spending from 2001 to 2008, stated that $49.66 billion has been allocated for civilian biodefense. According to microbiologist and longtime biodefense critic Richard Ebright of Rutgers University, actual spending is even higher, amounting to $57 billion.

In 2005, he and 757 other microbiologists sent a stinging open letter to Elias Zerhouni, director of the National Institutes of Health, protesting the government's preoccupation with "priority pathogens" -- germs such as anthrax that could be used in a bioweapons attack. But Zerhouni and Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, would have none of it. In a letter published in the journal Science, they disagreed: "The United States has experienced an anthrax attack, and security experts repeatedly express concern that future attacks with biological weapons are likely, if not inevitable."

But we didn't actually experience an anthrax attack. The whole incident amounted to a snake eating its own tail. No ingenious biowarrior from Al Qaeda sent the lethal envelopes through the U.S. postal system. An American scientist did. The FBI and its genetic analyses leave no doubt: Though 16 laboratories had access to the "Ames strain" of anthrax used in the letters, only the samples that came from Ivins' laboratory at Ft. Detrick matched the genetic fingerprint of the attack strain.

In the sorry aftermath of the anthrax investigation, it's clear that the National Institutes of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have to rethink the priority-pathogens list, which includes anthrax, smallpox, plague, tularemia, Ebola and other germs that rarely, if ever, threaten American lives. It's the "non-defense-related" germs that are killing us. Randall Wolcott of the Southwest Regional Wound Care Center points out that 500,000 Americans a year die of biofilm infections -- such as diabetic ulcers -- that are almost impossible to treat by conventional means. That's almost twice as many as die of cancer. "


Total article is longer... check it out.

Of course, it tows the party line in going along with the idea that some "lone nut" stole anthrax and mailed it. The Capitol Hill Anthrax Attacks were, I believe, perpetrated by the CIA on the directive of the executive branch.

What are ESBLs?

Well, it's some kind of thing I guess that infects newborn babies. There was a recent attack in a UK hospital, here's the BBC with a quip:

A potentially life-threatening superbug has been found in the intensive care unit used for newborn babies at the Royal Blackburn Hospital.

Some babies have been identified as carrying the bug, called extended-spectrum beta-lactamase, or ESBL.

Fortunately, the CDC is a bit more illuminating with what this "superbug" is:

ESBLs are enzymes that mediate resistance to extended-spectrum (third generation) cephalosporins (e.g., ceftazidime, cefotaxime, and ceftriaxone) and monobactams (e.g., aztreonam) but do not affect cephamycins (e.g., cefoxitin and cefotetan) or carbapenems (e.g., meropenem or imipenem).

Which means they are weird enzymes that attach to bacteria and cause them to become resistant against many types of antibiotics.

So where do these enzymes come from?? They come from certain other unicellular organisms such as E. Coli and the bacteria themselves.

One question no one answers, when did these superbugs start producing this enzyme? It seems pretty specific to me... This reeks of deliberate genetic manipulation of enzyme production that went awry or was possibly purposefully created to cause a rise in infant mortality.

And now it is killing babies.

Hepatitis E Outbreak Kills Nine Ugandans

Found this from Bloomberg:

"Aug. 13 (Bloomberg) -- An outbreak of Hepatitis E in Uganda killed at least nine people in four districts over the last week, bringing the death toll since July 17 to 25, the Daily Monitor reported, citing the Health Ministry.

The disease has killed 106 of 6,563 people infected in the northern districts of Kitgum, Gulu, Pader and Yumbe since October 2007, when cases of the illness were first detected, the Kampala-based newspaper said, citing Kenya Mugisha, director of clinical health services at the ministry.

Hepatitis is transmitted through water contaminated with feces. The virus, common in neighboring South Sudan, causes jaundice and fever. The first reports of the outbreak came from refugee camps in Kitgum housing people displaced by a two-decade insurgency by the rebel Lord's Resistance Army."


Fortunately, Hepatitis E is very very rare in the USA and most Western nations.

C. Diff Outbreak 'Worst Ever' in UK

Apparently eight are dead in Northern Trust area of Ireland and cases have doubled double in Belfast hospitals.

From The Belfast Telegraph:

"Fears over the spread of the deadly superbug Clostridium Difficile were growing last night after a second health trust declared an outbreak of the killer infection as the worst ever in the UK.

Just hours after the Northern Trust confirmed that a further eight deaths last month in the area were linked to C.Difficile, the Belfast Trust also announced an official outbreak after the number of cases doubled in a month.

The latest deaths in the Northern area, which occurred at Antrim Area Hospital, bring to 61 the provisional number linked to the bug since the outbreak first took hold last summer — with 40 of those patients having died since the beginning of this year.

But a Northern Trust spokesman insisted there was a reduction in the number of new infection cases.

“The Trust has identified a total of 19 new cases of Clostridium Difficile in July 2008,” he said."


Watch this hospital get a class action lawsuit put against it... They have those in Ireland, right?

The fact is, the UK's national health care system is not immune to lost or squandered money that should have gone into maintenance and staff training. Not that I'm supporting the US healthcare "sysem" -- but let's not get into single payer insurance plans or universal health care...

Anyway, watch out all of you who live in Northern Belfast - the hospitals are sick!

1 2 3 4 KINGDOM!

Any one know what I'm talking about? Riget? It is a must see!!

Inquiry into MRSA Death

The law is getting involved in the alleged MRSA death of a Southampton woman who had just undergone heart surgery at a local hospital.

Video is here at the
BBC News site!

Chemtrails linked to Morgellons disease

In case you happen to be wondering what chemtrails are, Educate-Yourself has a nice intro to them here, wherein it is explained:

For [several years now], the military has been spraying the skies throughout America, Canada, and now parts of Europe (including Britain, France, and the Netherlands) with substances that were initially referred to as "mystery contrails" , but later were named "chemtrails" by investigative reporter and author William Thomas.

Its my honest opinion that there is more than enough evidence out there to confirm the likelihood of a chemtrail-like bio-chemical experiment being conducted by several major world powers on their own respective citizens.

Apparently there is evidence to indicate a possible link between chemtrails and Morgellons disease. Io9 quotes chemtrail research activist Carolyn Williams Palit, saying:

Chemtrail activists collect evidence that the chemtrail spray contains not only germs but conductive metals, blood cells, carbon powders, sedatives, nano-particulates, crystalline substances, alumina particulates, barium powders, and a kind of polyethylene-silicon fiber . . . The chemtrail fibers are a kind of infant, “pre-Morgellons” fiber. The Morgellons fibers are more developed, but the fibers are related to the type of nanotechnology that assembles nanowires.

I should note at this point that Morgellons syndrome is a controversial and disputed illness in the medical community. As a medical anthropologist I must say that BioCulturaly it is a disease, since it has been described, but it may be a pseudo-pathology. Its proximate cause and subsequent ramifications for pathophysiology are currently nothing much more than spurious conjecture. From our trusted friend, Wikipedia:

Morgellons is currently not recognized as a unique disorder, so there is currently no list of symptoms or differential diagnosis for Morgellons that is generally accepted by the medical community. Patients usually self-diagnose based on media reports and information published by the Morgellons Research Foundation. Symptoms usually include:

  • Disturbing sensations of insect-like crawling, stinging or biting on or under the skin (i.e. formication)
  • Skin rashes and lesions that do not heal
  • Fiber-like filaments, granules or crystals that appear on or under the skin or that can be extracted from lesions
  • Joint, muscle and connective tissue pain, including fibromyalgia
  • Debilitating fatigue
  • Cognitive dysfunction, including difficulty with concentration, short-term memory, and attention

-- Skin lesions on hand from Morgellons syndrome

So, since most current hypotheses blow hard chunks, here's my personal take: This is a cluster of symptoms that tend to occur together, which is why it is commonly referred to as a syndrome. Usually such disorders have one or ver few causes that create the bodily reactions that manifest in these symptoms.

Now, if chemtrails contain microfilaments, and these microfiliments grow into fibrous subcutaneous cysts that are accompanied by delusions and mental dysfunction, these things must be both toxic to the skin and also when inocculated act as a neurotoxin on the CNS, causing hallucinations and mental impairment. Which means the microfiliments must be coated in a toxin that causes both skin rash and psychological effects.

It is most likely that the microfiliments (or microfibers) enter the bloodstream and subsequently muscle tissue through the open skin leisions they cause. Itching and scratching the rashs and sores will exacerbate this. Seeing as there are no respitory symptoms, it is less likely that the lungs are involved in spreading the microfiliments. If we are to assume that these things are crystaline in nature then they could possibly attract and form larger fibrous like masses as they spread through out the body, apparently lodging mainly in muscle tissue, where they have been previously extracted in clinical settings.

Now we need case studies of people who have been known to have been under heavy chemtrail activity developing Morgellons.

Get crackin'!

La Mancha Negra

From Environmental Grafitti:

"A looming shape becomes visible through the gloom and Perez, who drives these roads every day, knows exactly what it is - he swerves, losing control of the car, sparks go flying and for a brief moment his life flashes before his eyes, yet somehow he wrestles the wheel round and brings the vehicle to a controlled stop. The taxi driver and his passengers have narrowly avoided become the latest victim of the Venezuelan terror blob, a horrifying monster that has so far claimed the lives of over 1800 people.

Venezuelans call it La Mancha Negra - The Black Stain - but the layer of thick goo covering an eight mile stretch of road outside Caracas resembles a terrifying blob straight out of a 1950’s sci-fi movie and just like the latter, it has been responsible for hundreds of deaths. So what is it and where did it come from?

Many explanations have been offered, from extraterrestrial intervention to poorly made asphalt road, but the Venezuelan government remains mystified - even experts flown in from around the globe have been unable to shed light on it. And whilst the authorities remain stumped, the blob has not only expanded to over one hundred times its original size, but killed hundreds of motorists.

Whatever the hell it is, it appears to be on a large stretch of road and growing...

Over 1800 people have been killed on an eight-mile stretch in the last five years - an astonishing tally - and although the blob may not be directly responsible for all them all, the danger posed is plain for all to see.

Ruth Capriles, Venezuela’s foremost whistle-blower and author of the two-volume ‘Corruption Dictionary’ - a compendium of the nation’s corruption cases - has her own theory on the blob: she thinks political opponents of President Carlos Andres Perez were dumping oil on the roads to make his government look bad. “There could be corruption, but who knows for sure? Everybody is giving a different explanation.” Then there is the theory that raw sewage from slums somehow is flowing under the roads and triggering a chemical reaction in the asphalt.

Sounds dangerous! If its some kind of organic toxic sludge then its not just a hazard for motorists, that's for sure.

At least 15 cases confirmed in E.coli Boy Scouts outbreak

The E. Coli outbreak that occurred in a popular Boy Scout camp in Goshen, Virginia roughly a week ago is still growing. Over the span of a week the number jumped from 9 to 15 confirmed cases of potentially deadly E. coli poisoning.

From the AP:

"Public health officials have confirmed 15 cases of E. coli among dozens of people sickened after attending a popular Boy Scout camp in Virginia."

Also the Washington Post is reporting that 2 boys have been hospitalized:

"The Virginia Department of Health began receiving reports of sick children on Sunday, when boys from about 70 troops returned home after a week at the Goshen Scout Reservation near Lexington, Va., about three hours from Washington. Two of the boys were hospitalized, officials said."

How many is 70 troops? WTF kind of reporting is that? 70 troops? We're not all Eagle Scouts here!
I'm going to estimate roughly 25 children and 3 adults as a "troop." Multiply that by 70 and we have 1,960 individuals potentially infected with E. Coli. I have no idea though because no news reports aren't actually giving out actual attendance figures...

70 troops?! I mean its not like saying "2 US Battalions" now is it?? I mean I can look that up figure out how many individual soldiers they're talking about but this boyscout troop shit is nonsense!

After suicide, feds consider closing anthrax case

Because any further investigation would lead them straight to the CIA! It's textbook CIA methods,
the execution style, the ambiguity of it all, perfect climate of peak post-911 fear...

Well, anyway, from the AP Report:

"Answers to one of the nation's most high-profile unsolved mysteries are in documents that could be released as early as this week — and help explain how the government chased the wrong suspect for years."
In other words: "The government may or may not release information they have regarding the anthrax attacks."

There's more:

The Justice Department attributed the break in the case to "new and sophisticated scientific tools" that cost the FBI about $10 million. Investigators said the science focused, in part, on how the anthrax strains were handled and who had access to it at the time of the mailings.

FBI scientists were able to isolate strains used in the attacks, and determined they were not as common as previously thought. And that led investigators to Ivins.

Had the same process been available years ago, it would have cleared Hatfill much earlier, according to two people familiar with the FBI investigation who spoke on condition of anonymity because the case is not officially closed.

David R. Franz, a former commander of the Army's lab biological warfare labs at Fort Detrick, Md., where Ivins worked, said Saturday he thought it was "very important that the FBI present their case against Bruce and not just state that the investigation was over because it was him and he's gone."

Franz added, "I'm concerned about what closing this case without conclusive evidence might do to harm our life sciences enterprise. ... I think we as Americans need to see the proof."

Obviously the guy killing himself doesn't prove his guilt and this "breakthrough technique" sounds like a bunch of bullshit to me... He was a "suspect" in the obviously faseflag anthrax attacks so now they can be lack, "well he was our only lead..." and quiet most of the whiners... It'll probably work, too.

I completely agree with everything Cmdr. Franz is saying. Perhaps if this gets enough attention more information will come out and have possible evidence indicating that this was indeed an inside job.
