Aaron Dykes & Melissa Melton: Um, why does the CDC own Patent No. CA2741523A1 on a Weaponized Ebola Strain?Submitted by AnCapMercenary on Sun, 08/03/2014 - 15:14
From Martial Law to Big Money: Five Questions We're Asking about the Ebola Scare
Published on Aug 3, 2014
What a difference a week makes...
Why are they shipping Ebola-infected patients onto American soil for the first time? Why is Obama amending executive orders about quarantining people infected with Ebola when he already had that power? What exactly have Ft. Detrick biowarfare researchers been doing in the Ebola hot zone in West Africa all this time? Why does the U.S. government own a patent on a novel strain of Ebola that those same Ft. Detrick researchers quietly admitted in a CDC journal article last month may actually be the cause of the current Sierra Leone outbreak, not Ebola Zaire as widely reported? Who stands to gain from this, and what is it they are ultimately after?
Just asking. Talking about something scary isn't automatically scaremongering, but if the powers that shouldn't be are scaremongering, we should talk about it.
P.S. - The Bundibugyo version of Ebola (Ebobun), which is apparently genetically distinct, differing by more than 30% at the genome level from all other known ebolavirus species, has a much lower death rate than the Zaire version the media keeps talking about, at 36% for the initial Ebobun outbreak versus 70-90% on average for Zaire. Additionally, because it is much more unique, if a vaccine or treatment is created for Ebola and the Ebobun strain is not taken into account, the resulting treatment or vaccine obviously might not work on it.

Compositions and methods including and related to the Ebola Bundibugyo virus (EboBun) are provided.
Compositions are provided that are operable as immunogens to elicit and immune response or protection from EboBun challenge in a subject such as a primate. Inventive methods are directed to detection and treatment of EboBun infection.
Description (OCR text may contain errors)
HUMAN EBOLA VIRUS SPECIES AND COMPOSITIONS AND METHODS THEREOF
 The invention provides the isolated human Ebola (hEbola) viruses denoted as Bundibugyo (EboBun) deposited with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ("CDC";
Atlanta, Georgia, United States of America) on November 26, 2007 and accorded an accession number 200706291. This deposit was not made to an International Depository Authority (IDA) as established under the Budapest Treaty on the International Recognition of the Deposit of Microorganisms for the Purposes of Patent Procedure, and is a non-Budapest treaty deposit. The deposited organism is not acceptable by American Type Culture Collection (ATCC), Manassas, Virginia, an International Depository Authority (IDA) as established under the Budapest Treaty on the International Recognition of the Deposit of Microorganisms for the Purposes of Patent Procedure. Samples of the stated Deposit Accession No. 200706291 will be made available to approved facilities for thirty years from the date of deposit, and for the lifetime of the patent issuing from, or claiming priority to this application.
 This application claims priority benefit of U.S. Provisional Application 61/108,175 filed 24 October 2008; the contents of which are hereby incorporated by reference.
FIELD OF THE INVENTION
 The invention is related to compositions and methods directed to a novel species of human Ebola (hEbola) virus.
** Personally, I always assume any and all govt agency is just another arm of the National Sekurity Theatre State, 'cause its function, data, and whatever intel it can gather, can always be used for military applications. And, since when does any govt NOT want to weaponize...anything??
And, here's a sobering, blunt assessment of this entire lunacy by Dr. Paul Craig Roberts:
Paul Craig Roberts
August 1, 2014
I just heard on National Public Radio two things that have totally destroyed what tiny bit of belief I still had in American leadership. I have concluded that the term “intelligent American” is an oxymoron.
American elites have decided that Americans are not sufficiently threatened by war and economic chaos, so they are bringing the ebola virus to America. National Public Radio reported that two people infected with the ebola virus, which cannot be cured and is usually deadly, are being brought to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia.
All it takes is one cough, one sneeze, one drop of saliva, and the virus is loose in one of the main transportation centers of the US.
Pandemic anyone? Little doubt but that most of the world would emit a great sigh of relief to be rid of Washington.
Here's recent DP thread by busted on the patent:
R.E.M. - It's The End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine) (2003 Digital Remaster).

Music video by R.E.M. performing It's The End Of The World
That's great, it starts with an earthquake
Birds and snakes, an aeroplane, and Lenny Bruce is not afraid
Eye of a hurricane, listen to yourself churn
World serves its own needs, don't misserve your own needs
Feed it up a knock, speed, grunt, no, strength
The ladder starts to clatter with a fear of height, down, height
Wire in a fire, represent the seven games
And a government for hire and a combat site
Left her, wasn't coming in a hurry with the Furies breathing down your neck
Team by team, reporters baffled, trumped, tethered, cropped
Look at that low plane, fine, then
Uh-oh, overflow, population, common group
But it'll do, save yourself, serve yourself
World serves its own needs, listen to your heart bleed
Tell me with the Rapture and the reverent in the right, right
You vitriolic, patriotic, slam fight, bright light
Feeling pretty psyched
It's the end of the world as we know it
It's the end of the world as we know it
It's the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine
