The video and title are VERY hard to take in, but ask the question! Why are there so many ‘Whistleblowers’? People risking their lives to tell the truth. Now can we link this to all the banking Deaths earlier this year? I don’t know, all I do know is there is a cartel of criminals at the very tip of the World Bank. Money for the poor NEVER reaches the poor. Your call on what you believe http://shaunynews.com/?s=Suicides+bank&submit=Search I don’t believe the ‘Alien’ title here but I do get that there is still a group of people holding the financial cards for the entire world. If we don’t all know this by now then I recommend opening Google and checking the Banking Suicide’s all over the World the last year as a starting point to a much broader and bigger story, the link I provided above are all the banking deaths. One where a male Banker killed himself with a nail gun, shooting himself in the arms and legs as well, doesn’t make sense but this was the official story. If we think outside the box we see the bigger picture, or we don’t care and live in the dark. We have this choice

Former World Bank Senior Council, Karen Hudes has been making a lot of noise lately, and she recently said something she’s never said before. She said that a second species on Earth controls money and religion. Many people who have held positions to know things that the rest of us might not know have made some very shocking statements lately. For example, Paul Hellyer, former Canadian Minister of National Defence recently said that there are at least “4 known alien species that have been visiting Earth for thousands of years.” You can read more about that here.

I am aware that just because somebody says something does not mean that it’s true, no matter what their background. At the same time, what she says corroborates with a lot of ancient historical facts, and modern day disclosures of other strange phenomenon, like UFOs, secret societies and more. For someone like this to gain credibility as a World Bank whistle-blower and then all of a sudden make a comment like this is quite shocking. Although, in her interview she did discredit the idea of extraterrestrials on the planet, which I definitely disagree with. There is an enormous amount of evidence out there to suggest we are not alone, and we have indeed been visited. For more information on that click here.

“These countries are not monolithic, there are forces fighting the corruption and there are forces that have totally been co-opted, and the way they act is treasonous to the people in those countries. The group that’s behind the network of control are the Jesuits, and there are also some groups behind them. One of these groups are hominids, they’re not human beings. They are very smart, they are not creative, they are mathematical. They had a much stronger force in the earlier ice-age. They have elongated skulls, they may produce offspring in mating with female humans, but that offspring is not fertile. We live in a world of secret societies, and secrets, and the information that ought to be public is not public.”

Karen held her senior position at the World Bank for twelve years before deciding to blow the whistle on the World Bank and corruption within it. She studies law at Yale Law School and economics at the University of Amsterdam. She worked in the US Export Import Bank of the US from 1980-1985 and in the Legal Department of the World Bank from 1986-2007. She established the Non-Governmental Organization Committee of the International Law Section of the American Bar Association and the Committee on Multilateralism and the Accountability of International Organizations of the American Branch of the International Law Association.

These are shocking statements that come shortly after gaining attention for being a credible world bank whistleblower, stating that the world is in a “currency war,” that the Federal Reserve continues to print money like crazy, and if they keep going at the pace they are on, other countries will no longer accept this currency. She has been exposing criminal corruption that takes place at the highest levels of financial institutions. In 1999, she reported the corrupt take-over of the second largest bank in the Philippines. She’s exposed the collusion that takes place between financial institutions and various governments, and much much more.

This is a great clip of her telling us some important stuff. Before you brush off what she has to say, keep in mind that the reality of many strange phenomenon has a large amount of proof to back it up, or at least be open to the possibility.

W.H.O. – World ‘Losing The Battle’ Against Ebola – 60 Days To Save Humanity


The Experts are telling us this

By Shaun Gibson @ShaunyNews

The battle against the ebola outbreak that has killed more than 4,500 people is being lost, the head of the World Bank has warned. Speaking after the United Nations revealed it had received less than 40% of the nearly $1bn ($600m) it had requested to fight the deadly disease, World Bank chief Jim Yong Kim blamed a lack of international solidarity for the failure to stop its spread.

“We are losing the battle,” he told reporters in Paris.

“Certain countries are only worried about their own borders,” he told reporters in Paris.  International anxieties over the spread of Ebola were

highlighted as a cruise ship carrying a lab technician who worked with samples taken from an infected nurse in Dallas was stopped from docking in Belize and Mexico.  “It is the first time that this has happened, and it was decided the ship should not dock as a preventative measure against Ebola,” Erce Barron, port authority director in Quintana Roo, said.

Meanwhile, a vomiting woman outside the Pentagon sparked a scare in Washington, illustrating concerns in the US as questions continue to be asked about the infection of two nurses who treated a Liberian man who died at a Texas hospital. The Obama administration has appointed an ‘ebola czar’ to co-ordinate the government’s response to the outbreak.   It also asked three biological laboratories to submit plans for making the experimental drug ZMapp, which  ran out after it was given to several medical workers infected while working in West Africa. Although it has never been subjected to a clinical trial, the labs have been asked to submit budgets and timetables for production. As part of European efforts to stop the spread, France will start screening air passengers for Ebola today.

Air France flight attendants have also called for a halt to all flights from Guinea, one of the three hardest-hit countries. The daily Paris-Conakry flight “carries a serious risk of spreading the epidemic, particularly in our country,” a statement from the flight crew and commercial staff unions said. The United States, Britain and Canada have already launched screenings at airports for passengers from Ebola-hit areas.

Ebola Cases In UK Within Months – Health Chief


Ebola Drill Tests UK Readiness

Ebola Drill Tests UK Readiness

By Shaun Gibson : @ShaunyNews

The UK should expect ebola cases within months, the country’s chief medical officer has warned. Sally Davies said: “The big problem is in West Africa where the doubling rate is every four weeks and it really is going up and up, so it will not be surprising if we have spillover into this country. “I would expect a handful of cases over the next few months.” The virus has already claimed more than 4,000 lives in West Africa. But after a nationwide drill to test Britain’s readiness for an outbreak, the Health Secretary said he was “doubly reassured” the NHS could cope.

Jeremy Hunt said the eight-hour simulation at locations across the country proved “robust plans” were in place if the disease reached the UK. Ministers joined dozens of medical professionals, some of whom wore protective clothing, as actors simulated symptoms of the deadly virus. The exercise, which was ordered by David Cameron as part of the UK’s contingency plan, involved staff from hospitals, the ambulance service and Public Health England. One scenario saw a patient collapse at Gateshead shopping centre.

They were assessed and placed in isolation at the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle. Samples were sent for testing at the Porton Down science laboratories in Wiltshire and, after returning an Ebola diagnosis, the patient was transferred to the Royal Free in London. In a separate case, a patient arrived at Hillingdon walk-in centre in London with flu-like symptoms, having recently returned from West Africa. Mr Hunt chaired a fake COBRA meeting as part of the exercise.

The president of the World Bank, Jim Kim, admitted on Wednesday that the international community had “failed miserably” in its response to the Ebola virus that has killed more than 3,800 people in west Africa and warned that the crisis now affecting Spain and the US was going to get much worse. Amid signs yesterday that western governments were being forced to take the risks of a global pandemic more seriously, Kim said he wanted them to back a new $20bn (£12bn) global health fund that would be able to react instantly to emergencies. “It’s late. It’s really late,”

He said: “This is an extremely useful exercise and I feel doubly reassured that we have robust plans in place in the event that we get an ebola case in the UK. “We will evaluate what went well and what we need to improve. “This exercise is just one small part of our ongoing contingency plans for ebola. It builds on activity we routinely practise for a wide variety of illnesses and other emergencies.” Meanwhile, aid ship RFA Argus, which will travel to Sierra Leone next week to help fight the outbreak, has arrived in Falmouth, Cornwall.

It will carry medical supplies, three Merlin helicopters, aircrew and engineers. Its deployment comes as the Prime Minister was forced to defend the decision to introduce enhanced screening for the virus at major points of entry, saying it had been taken on “medical advice”. The move was criticised by health experts, with one describing it as a “complete waste of time”. As Britain’s response stepped up, a director of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention claimed it was impossible to reduce the risk to the American public to zero.

There is currently no effective vaccine for ebola, but Russia announced on Saturday that it expected to produce three within the next six months. In Spain, three more people are under observation in a Madrid hospital, taking the number currently being monitored for ebola symptoms to 16. The first person known to have contracted the disease outside West Africa during the current outbreak, 44-year-old Spanish nurse Teresa Romero, remains in a stable condition.

Ebola crisis: global response has ‘failed miserably’, says World Bank chief – As World is warned millions could die


iW_EUnVa8QA8

When these guys give money away, it’s to protect the rest of the money, lets be clear on this

The president of the World Bank, Jim Kim, admitted on Wednesday that the international community had “failed miserably” in its response to the Ebola virus that has killed more than 3,800 people in west Africa and warned that the crisis now affecting Spain and the US was going to get much worse. Amid signs yesterday that western governments were being forced to take the risks of a global pandemic more seriously, Kim said he wanted them to back a new $20bn (£12bn) global health fund that would be able to react instantly to emergencies. “It’s late. It’s really late,” he said in an interview with the Guardian before the annual meeting of the Washington-based organisation this weekend. “We should have done so many things. Healthcare systems should have been built. There should have been monitoring when the first cases were reported. There should have been an organised response.” Kim’s warning that the global community was still not “moving fast enough” came as the Ebola virus claimed its first victim in the US and news of a case in Spain sent shares in travel and airline companies tumbling on stock exchanges. The World Health Organisation (WHO) said the number of deaths from Ebola in west Africa now stood at 3,879 with no evidence that the epidemic was being brought under control.

The US has announced that it is scaling up its efforts and will tighten screening procedures at airports from this weekend. Thomas Duncan, who died in a Dallas hospital on Wednesday after arriving from Liberia, lied in a questionnaire about whether he had been in contact with anyone affected by Ebola. Britain also announced on Wednesday that it was scaling up its efforts to deal with the Ebola virus which has gripped three west African countries –Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea.

OBAMA AT UNITED NATIONS ON EBOLA – WARNING to the WORLD. Ebola is Spreading at Alarming Speed

Let’s no forget the utter importance and real threat Ebola is “Spreading at alarming speed and it will get worse”

All of England’s major hospitals are making preparations to isolate and treat patients suspected of having Ebola if a serious outbreak occurs, while more than 750 military personnel and the medical ship RFA Argus are being sent to west Africa to help contain the outbreak. RFA Argus has a fully-equipped hospital including critical care and high-dependency units, and will be sent to Sierra Leone along with three Merlin helicopters. The announcement followed a meeting of the government’s Cobra emergency committee, chaired by the UK prime minister.

However the government has come under pressure to do more to prevent the disease spreading in the UK, including calls for the introduction of screening at airports and other transport hubs. Keith Vaz, chairman of Britain’s Commons home affairs select committee, said: “We must do all we can, both at the source and in the UK, to combat the spread of this virus. “Our immediate response should be to tighten regulation and introduce measures such as screenings at airports, train stations and ferry ports to ensure that this deadly disease cannot take more lives.

I will share some quotes with you from around the World. I can’t say they are 100% but I do know these people would not lie:

“Yes, this is a friend of a friend kind of post. Check my posting history; I don’t do these kinds of threads. If a mod of member I trust wants details, pm me and I will provide.  Source is a nurse who is also a relative of mine, and is currently a patient in a hospital. There are more lies being told about the case in Dallas than even we have been supposing, including the time of death, contacts being traced, and people with symptoms beginning to show. Will update as more information arrives”

~~

Officials are also in the process of examining clinical staff and other facility patrons. The number of people impacted at the Care Now facility is unknown.

~~

I’ll be watching this one… Being 30 minutes from downtown Dallas I have a horse in this race. Keep it coming.  I started a thread “Possible Ebola Case, Dallas Texas” breaking this story on ATS. On page one of that thread a member I now call Dan the Man posted some inside information from a nurse he knows that works in the hospital he was being treated at. Sadly his source went dry after one further update. I’m sure the nurse had fear for their job as he said they were told not to say anything. They are going as far as changing the in house communication methods. Prior to the Mr. Duncans arrival Dr’s were contacted by their personal cell phones. Now cell phones are not allowed in the building. They are keeping very tight lipped on the real situation there, so I am excited at the prospect of some real updates from real, honest people, not pushing an agenda.

~~

Trust me, I’ve railed against all the incarnations of Mr. Schnitzel that have appeared on these boards over the years I’ve been here.  I will give as many details as I can.  Source is a relative who is a nurse (has been for a long time, and is well versed in this virus in particular) and is a patient in one of the few hospitals in the country that does have the facilities to deal with this virus.  As one can imagine, this topic is on many lips in the hospital.  It is this person’s opinion that the virus is, and has been, transmissible prior to onset of symptoms.   That is the bigges lie we are being told.

~~

As you can see the responses from people from many parts of the World are real and it has and will effect us all in some way. I too was puzzled by the Dallas patient’s death being reported by Israel a day or so ago. I wonder if the delay reporting his death in the U.S. media had something to do with this strange side-story about “blood transfers” from survivors. That might account for the delay, in order to get survivor blood to him – or from him to another patient. Obama in his speech was 100% correct to have a go at Russia, China and others for doing little or nothing to calm this surge of Death that Obama has said, the CDC and W.H.O have said, experts in the field have said, THIS CAN AND WILL KILL MILLIONS+ if we fail to act now and act as one World. Sadly Wars are still being fought when we could in some way come together and help stop the spread of a disease that. as said ‘Is totally out of control. Feel free to look at the link below or search my blog from the 1st Ebola blog till now to see where we went wrong, Dr’s didn’t know this is a new/different strain of Ebola and were sending people home thinking they had the flu. The World bank has stepped forward to help, and it will ask all countries to put into the money pot to help. Also I can’t believe how fast this disease is moving, it is almost totally out of control, if not already there 

~~

I myself reported the Death 2 days before the media and like many in this hospital many don’t understand the delay : https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/2014/10/06/breaking-ebola-patient-in-dallas-has-died-reports/ This was October 6th, the death was announced on the 8th. Many told me that “Thomas Duncan is getting better and will recover” I had this comment “How can you say he’s dead when a family member tweeted yesterday to say Thomas was getting better” Now who am I to say what is right or not right. Israel (Mossad) are the World’s best spying operation, if the say it, you can usually take it to the bank. I am hearing also Nurses are ‘almost’ refusing to go to work in a few hospitals. People are very scared and I think America has actually woken up for once to the Worst’ disease there is on Earth being a clear and present Danger. Right now ISIS/IS are of little debate, Ebola for now is the biggest threat to our species since the Spanish Flu around 1919 that killed 7% of the globe (I read 3% I read 7% more often) And this was before ‘Lets jump on a plane to Paris and people traveling all corners of the World every day. Australia got it’s first case of Ebola yesterday meaning every continent on Earth with people living day to day lives has now seen Ebola. The CDC said 2 months ago “Ebola is out of Control” W.H.O have said pretty much the same. Now we see the World bank move to protect it’s money. I would love to say they did it because it was the right things to do, sadly I am not sure. Obama was 100% correct when he accused Russia and China and others (He didn’t name names, he doesn’t have to) of doing very little and this could cause more deaths. The latest projection is 10 Million people will die. Lets hope this isn’t true. But every few hours I hear of a possible new patient, it is a story I started writing about early May and here we are in September and all I feared is unfolding before mhttps://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/?s=ebola

“Immigration officers are not trained health professionals. Greater support must be offered to ensure that they are equipped to deal with this outbreak to prevent it reaching the UK.” Kim said he welcomed the UK and the US scaling up their efforts, but said that a high price was being paid for 11 months of delay and inter-agency argument. “Now that there are cases in Spain and the US, the chance of the virus going to other European countries is fairly high,” he said. In a blunt assessment of how the international community had coped with the crisis, Kim said: “We were tested by Ebola and we failed. We failed miserably in our response.”

He urged finance ministers attending meetings of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund this weekend to provide the resources needed to treat Ebola patients in their home countries. Under the Bank’s plan, resources would be provided to build big specialised treatment centres and to extend care to local communities. Every developed country should be prepared to send trained medical staff to west Africa, Kim said.

“We don’t need to stop all travel from these countries. It’s going to be impossible to stop people. The way to stop the flow of patients from these countries getting to the rest of the world is to have programmes that will treat people and increase survival dramatically. It’s possible. “We need to have quality services in place so that the motivation to leave these countries goes away. It is a rational thing to do to get away because we don’t have the treatment in place.” Rudimentary healthcare systems in the three west African countries have encouraged people to travel abroad for treatment, thereby spreading the virus. Before the crisis, Liberia had 61 doctors and 1,000 nurses, while Sierra Leone had 327 hospital beds. “I say to finance ministers: look at what’s happening in Spain right now. It is going to get much worse.”

The authorities in Spain said they were dealing with the first case of Ebola that had been transmitted outside of the three west African countries – a nurse who treated a priest who had flown to Madrid for care. The World Health Organisation said further “sporadic” cases of Ebola in Europe were now inevitable. A World Bank study released on Wednesday showed that the economic cost of Ebola could be as high as $33bn over the next two years if the virus spreads to neighbouring countries in west Africa.

Kim admitted that the Bank had been having arguments with the WHO over Ebola but that they had now stopped. “The most important thing is to stop arguing about what is or is not possible and to get on with doing what’s needed.” Kim said his plan involved big treatment centres being set up by the US and the UK together with attempts to provide as full a range of services as possible into local communities. He said: “It would be good if you could manage the treatment of people close to home. But you can’t do that without the personnel. “We need to put the capacity into place so that cases are identified more quickly.” Oxfam criticised the World Bank for its failure to invest enough in healthcare and in its promotion of user-fees and privatisation.

Nicolas Mombrial, head of Oxfam in Washington, said: “This has changed rhetorically under Jim Kim. We hope to see it play out in the Bank’s lending and advice from now. Ebola should serve to accelerate this change.” Kim said that countries such as Sierra Leone had used financial support from the Bank to improve energy supplies, but added: “This has taught us that we have to be much more serious about putting health systems into place.” He contrasted health systems in the three west African countries with Rwanda, which has 55,000 health workers. “If this had happened in Rwanda we would have had it under control.”

Kim said it was fortunate Ebola was not a quick-moving virus but the chances of a quick moving virus in the next 10 years is high. “This was sloppy work on even a slow-moving virus like Ebola. If we have seen this with a slow moving virus we are not even close to being ready to deal with a fast moving virus.” He said Ebola highlighted the need to have a speedier way of responding to health crises. “Why don’t we have a multibillion dollar fund of $10bn, $15bn or $20bn set up so that once there is a global health emergency it can be drawn down on very quickly?”

LONDON (AP) — The World Health Organization urged nations worldwide to donate money and resources to stop the spread of Ebola as it declared the outbreak in West Africa to be an international public health emergency.

The latest Ebola outbreak is the largest and longest ever recorded for the disease, which has a death rate of about 50 percent and has so far killed at least 961 people, according to the U.N. health agency. It emerged in Guinea in March and has since spread to Sierra Leone, Liberia and Nigeria. “Countries affected to date simply do not have the capacity to manage an outbreak of this size and complexity on their own,” WHO chief Dr. Margaret Chan told a news conference Friday in Geneva. “I urge the international community to provide this support on the most urgent basis possible.” She added that the world’s “collective health security” depends on curbing the spread of the killer virus in West Africa, even as she acknowledged that many countries would probably not have any Ebola cases.

 TTHIS VIDEO IS THE MOST IMPORTANT VIDEO YOU MAY EVER WATCH, AN OFFICIAL STATEMENT CONFIRMING ONE OF THE MOST DEADLY VIRUSES ON EARTH IS OUT OF CONTROL AND HAS SPREAD AROUND THE GLOBE AND IS SPREADING FAST, 1st World MEET 3rd World.

The Nigerian government declared containing the Ebola virus in Africa’s most populous country a national emergency Friday, after two Ebola patients died and the health ministry said seven other cases were confirmed. President Goodluck Jonathan approved spending $11.7 million to fight the disease and urged schools to extend a current holiday to give experts more time to assess the Ebola threat. Since Ebola was first identified in 1976, there have been more than 20 outbreaks in central and eastern Africa; this is the first to affect West Africa. The virus causes symptoms including fever, vomiting, muscle pain and bleeding. It is spread by direct contact with bodily fluids like blood, sweat, urine, saliva and diarrhea. The U.N. agency convened an expert committee this week to assess the severity of the Ebola epidemic. WHO declared similar emergencies for the swine flu pandemic in 2009 and for polio in May.

The impact of WHO’s declaration Friday is unclear; its similar declaration about polio doesn’t yet seem to have slowed the spread of the paralytic virus. “Statements won’t save lives,” said Dr. Bart Janssens, director of operations for the Doctors Without Borders charity group. “For weeks, (we) have been repeating that a massive medical, epidemiological and public health response is desperately needed. … Lives are being lost because the response is too slow.” “I don’t know what the advantage is of declaring an international emergency,” added Dr. David Heymann, who directed WHO’s response to the SARS outbreak and is now a professor at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. “This could bring in more foreign aid but we don’t know that yet.”

Earlier this week, the World Bank pledged up to $200 million in emergency funding to help the countries affected by Ebola and strengthen public health systems across West Africa. On Friday, the European Union said it would chip in an additional 8 million euros ($10.7 million) to Ebola efforts and send a second mobile lab to help with diagnostics. USAID also announced it would invest an extra $12.45 million to support the fight against Ebola. In the United States, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has already warned Americans against traveling to West Africa due to the Ebola outbreak. The agency also put U.S. hospitals on alert for symptoms so they can spot potential cases. Two Americans infected with Ebola recently received a drug never before tested in people. The American doctor infected with Ebola, Dr. Kent Brantly, said in a statement Friday he’s getting stronger every day.

“I held the hands of countless individuals as this terrible disease took their lives away from them. I witnessed the horror firsthand, and I can still remember every face and name.” he added. He and another aid worker, Nancy Writebol, are being treated in an isolation unit at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta. Writebol’s husband, David, who remains in Liberia, told reporters Friday that his wife also appears to be improving. Next week, WHO will hold another meeting to discuss whether it’s ethical to use experimental Ebola treatments in the current outbreak. There is no licensed drug or treatment for Ebola and no evidence in people that the experimental treatments work.

Other experts hoped the WHO declaration would mean that send more health workers are sent to West Africa. “The situation is very critical and different from what we’ve seen before,” said Dr. Heinz Feldmann, chief of virology at the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease. “There are so many locations with transmission popping up and we just need more people on the ground.” WHO did not recommend any travel or trade bans Friday but said people who had close contact with Ebola patients should not travel internationally. For countries with Ebola, WHO issued various recommendations, including exit screening at international airports and border crossings to spot potential cases. It also discouraged mass gatherings. WHO said countries without Ebola should heighten their surveillance and treat any suspected cases as a health emergency.

This week, two of the worst-hit Ebola countries — Liberia and Sierra Leone — brought in troops to enforce quarantines and stop people infected with the disease from traveling. Liberian authorities said no one with a fever would be allowed in or out of the country and warned some civil liberties could be suspended if needed to bring the killer virus under control. The disease spread from Liberia to Nigeria when a man apparently sick with Ebola boarded a plane, according to the Nigerian government. Nigerian authorities say the man, who later died, was not placed into isolation for at least 24 hours after he was hospitalized. A nurse who treated him has since died from Ebola and authorities are monitoring seven other cases among people who had contact with him. Chan said while extraordinary measures might be necessary to contain the Ebola outbreak, it was important to recognize civil rights. “We need to respect the dignity of people and inform them why these measures are being taken,” she said.
