Ebola staging: experts attacked the diagnostic tests

Ebola staging: experts attacked the diagnostic tests

by Jon Rappoport

October 20, 2014


The experts were expressing grave doubts all the way back in 1977. Right at the beginning.

They were questioning the validity of standard tests used to diagnose Ebola—tests being the only way to say the virus is present in humans.

Of course, if the tests are unreliable, the whole premise of an epidemic caused by a single virus has no value. It’s an unwarranted assumption.

At that point, you can look for illness and death stemming from a number of causes. And you’re driven to the fact that, in Africa, large numbers of people have been dying for a very long time, for reasons that have nothing to do with germs:

Grinding poverty, war, starvation and severe malnutrition, contaminated water, pesticides, lack of basic sanitation, extreme overcrowding, stolen farm land, toxic medicines, and so on.

Not a viral epidemic.

The 1977 reference here is: “Ebola Virus Haemorrhagic Fever: Proceedings of an International Colloquium on Ebola Virus Infection and Other Haemorrhagic Fevers held in Antwerp, Belgium, 6-8 December, 1977.”

This report is 280 pages long. It’s well worth reading and studying, to see how the experts hem and haw, hedge their bets, and yet make damaging admissions:

For example, “It is impossible to consider the virological diagnosis of Ebola virus infection loose [apart] from the diagnosis of haemorrhagic fevers in general. The clinical picture of the disease indeed is too nonspecific to allow any hypothesis as to which virus may be responsible for any given case.”


Here is a particularly illuminating quote: “…it is becoming clear, to us at least, that the more work you do with the FA-Test [an antibody test for Ebola diagnosis] the more interesting, the more complicated and the more biologically sloppy the results become. I would urge very great caution in making any kind of final interpretation of what you have just heard [from other presenters]…I cannot explain how a Panamanian Indian can have antibodies to Ebola virus. I don’t think these are real antibodies. Of course if these are not, it means that any others in a given serum [blood sample from a patient] may not be as well. It is clear that we must have an alternative and a much more specific method with which we can answer these questions. Several facts suggest endemicity of Ebola in Zaire…I’m beginning to believe that the virus may in fact be endemic in Zaire.”

What do the last two sentences mean? They mean there is a significant chance that Ebola has been present in Zaire for a long, long time, and people have developed natural immunity to it, as they would to, say, measles or mumps.

Hardly the stuff of “outbreaks” and viral “hot zones” and recent “epidemics.”

“Ebola Virus Haemorrhagic Fever: Proceedings of an International Colloquium on Ebola Virus Infection and Other Haemorrhagic Fevers held in Antwerp, Belgium, 6-8 December, 1977.”

Fig. 1. Ebola virus. Unfixed diagnostic specimen from first Vero cell passage, showing elongated particle shape, but no internal tail. Sodium phosphotungstate; X 90,000. (Page 58. “Ebola Virus Haemorrhagic Fever: Proceedings of an International Colloquium on Ebola Virus Infection and Other Haemorrhagic Fevers held in Antwerp, Belgium, 6-8 December, 1977.”)


Here’s an add-on, 18 years after the 1977 Colloquium in Belgium: of the 55 million people living in Zaire, 20% were estimated to have antibodies to the Ebola virus. In other words, they had developed natural immunity to Ebola. (Citation: Dietrich J., 1995. Der Tod aus dem Regenwald. Die Woche, 19 May, p26-27.”) Again, not the stuff of an epidemic.

And finally, on a CDC website page titled, “Ebola (Ebola Virus Disease): Signs and Symptoms,” there is this quote: “People who recover from Ebola infection develop antibodies that last for at least 10 years.”

The meaning of this is ominous: such people, if they receive an antibody test for Ebola, even though they are now healthy, can be labeled “Ebola,” and treated accordingly: shunned, quarantined, attacked.

Thanks to Felicia Popescu for her article, “The Ebola lie exposed!—a historical analysis.” The article analyzes, in depth, the 1977 Colloquium on Ebola.

    Thanks, Jon, for your efforts to understand the force of darkness now engulfing the entire globe.

    In 1946, only weeks after the UN was formed on 24 Oct 1945, Grorge Orwell gave us a warning in “Nineteen-Eighty Four”

  2. Clearly many countries in Africa are suffering from an epidemic of unhealthiness. But our medical systems don’t study healthicine – so they don’t recognize healthiness nor unhealthiness. Now unhealthiness appears to be coming to visit the rest of the world. The truth – it’s always been here, undiagnosed, because medical systems can only treat with ‘medicines’ and unhealthiness can only be treated with healthicines.
    to your health, tracy

    After years of studying the “big game” (how things really work) I’ve concluded that no matter how cynical you are, you aren’t cynical enough. The article linked below makes some interesting points, that maybe the Ebola “epidemic” is a cover for another vaccine induced problem like AIDS.

    “Dr. Michele Carbone openly acknowledged HIV/AIDS was spread by the hepatitis B vaccine produced by Merck & Co. during the early 1970s. It was the first time since the initial transmissions took place in 1972-74, that a leading expert in the field of vaccine manufacturing and testing has openly admitted the Merck & Co. liability for AIDS.”



  4. Not one word to be seen on these revelations (also talking about the previous articles on the subject here) on our MSM in Germany. At least I found none.
    Ebola, Russia, and terrorists in Syria and Irak (IS), told us Obama recently at the UN… The worst threats…
    Medwedew more or less openly questioned Obamas mental sanity after this statement.
    If and when they ride it thus high, what are they really up to? Are they going to set the Spanish Flu loose, directly from Fort Detrick, to have some results?
    It gets ever ghastlier. I don’t as yet know what to make of this dire show.

  5. From Québec says:

    Jon, thanks for clearing the confusion about the Ebola test.

  6. ozziethinker says:

    The interesting part of this information is that the bio-weapon (or bio-weapons) appears to have been a mutation of the natural Ebola Virus and created after 1977. My latest post almost gets it, but requires some “:reading between the lines”. I give you several plugs, Jon as it is very on topic:

    Great article and references Jon. Another quagmire of “interpretive tests” that can only serve the purposes of people who want to see the canals on Mars, or in this case a “world wide” epidemic. The old HIV problem again. NO GOLD STANDARD TEST.
    Yes, our experience with HIV testing and ELISA tests have wandered blindly down this jungle path before.
    I am curious about culture testing, and “isolation” of Ebola. Can we fulfill Koch’s third Postulate by isolating a viral strain of Ebola, and then inoculate another Ebola free host, and the see the same “disease” develop in another host? Has Ebola ever satisfied Koch’s Postulates as we used to regard them in the study of a disease? (obviously we are not talking about humans as guinea pigs, but a suitable animal model or cell culture)
    The great thing about Ebola is that we could see the results in 22 days or so, instead of waiting 15-20 years with the average “HIV-AIDS” patient.

  8. theodorewesson says:

    The Ebola River is the headstream of the Mongala River, a tributary of the Congo River, in northern Democratic Republic of the Congo (Zaire, Belgian Congo). It is roughly 250 km in length.

    In 1976, Ebola virus (EBOV) was first identified near the Ebola River. Thus, the river is eponymous to the terms Ebola virus, Ebolavirus, and Ebola virus disease.

  9. Elizabeth Madson says:

    I just really respect the way you think….

  10. The Felicia Popescu article is in German and Google Translate is not working for me.

    Is there a link in English?

  11. theodorewesson says:

    Wow! The source of that “ebola virus” photo found! In a 1977/8 publication.

    And, at an “X 90,000” magnification?! Just how many nano meters long is this virus? Look! The tiny little terrorist! I don’t buy it.

    And I don’t buy the 150 year old germ-virus theory. These “lab aristocrats” don’t even try to statify Koch’s postulates by injecting large quanties of “ebola virus” into healthy lab monkeys.

    • Steve Stars says:

      Yes, as we saw with the “HIV” infected chimps, they run about $30,000 each, and then they don’t die and you can’t use them again for any other experiments. They stay alive for years disproving the germ in question as a cause of disease.
      At least the animal rights people get the benefit of complaining initially, then the satisfaction of knowing that no animals were hurt in the experiment.

    Ebola is an ideal name, don’t you think. It sounds sick just rolling off the tongue; looks foreign, but not exotic, rather, undesirable, if it was on a menu at an Ethiopian restaurant you wouldn’t try it. After all, when it’s spoken it sounds like you’re saying Evil with a capital E. It’s really a pandemic marketer’s dream word.

    Been reading some black plague stuff recently cuz i’m skeptical of the history. Hemorragic fever pops up a fair amount in that literature too, sometimes in relation to anthrax, which some virologists suspect was the real culprit, instead of the well known bubonic plague. Virologists (funny word, eh? Sounds more like they should be studying the word play and etymology of pandemics instead of the viruses) seem to dominate the historic telling of that plague period, which is a shame because they are not treating the period from a sound historical basis in my opinion, but rather through a pandemic, virology Doctorate lens.

    It’s interesting to note that there has been little scholarship relating the black plague with the little ice age. In the 12th and 13th centuries there were big population booms in Europe and there had been abundant harvests, but that would change at the end to the 13th century with a series of famines throughout the 14th century, the most infamous being the great famine of 1315-1317 (think Hansel and Gretel), and continuing throughout that century. After this, the population in many areas of Europe wouldn’t regain the numbers that they previously had until the 17th, 18th and even 19th centuries (just in time for the world wars).

    Readers of this website would be familiar with the dangers of malnutrition due to famine, as well as overcrowding in cities that are dependent on external sources of food, as well as the accompanying pitfalls of a lack of sanitation. It is entirely possible that what has been called the bubonic plague was really the result of prolonged, large-scale malnutrition that lead to weakened immune systems in both humans and livestock that resulted in a plethora of ailments that could get you excommunicated from cities, towns and villages (not that anyone would exploit that in order to remove undesirables from off their land); after all, most people, even intellectuals of the time, wouldn’t have been able to differentiate between diseases too easily, they very possibly could have just erred on the side of caution.

    Just from cursory readings of the period, it looks like there is an untold story about that time period in Europe. Understanding it may also help to explain the later mass death that occurred in the Americas in a framework not related to pandemic extinction. It’s worth investigating.

  13. According to the statistics, there are 300-500 million people who get Malaria every year (most of them are in West Africa where the Ebola outbreak is). That is 56,712 new cases every single day. 1 million people die each year from it. That’s 2,740 deaths per day.

    Cholera affects an estimated 3–5 million people worldwide yearly, and causes 58,000–130,000 deaths a year, mostly in West Africa. That is 356 deaths per day.

    Tyhpoid fever: 21 million cases per year, 200,000 deaths. 548 deaths per day.

    Tuberculosis, 600,000 deaths per year. 1643 deaths per day.
    Also Salmonella poisoning, Lassa Fever, the flu, kill tens of thousands in Africa each year.

    How many people in West Africa die each year from malnutrition and starvation? Tens of thousands more surely.

    So, since February how many people have died of Ebola…. 4,000 supposedly? Meanwhile in that same period of time 1 million+ have died of these other diseases, many of which manifest the exact same symptoms as Ebola according to the CDC, WHO, wikipedia, expert colloquiums, etc. Prove to me that these Ebola patients are NOT dying of Typhoid fever, malaria, cholera, tuberculosis, malnutrition, salmonella poisoning, etc, when many the symptoms are the same and since people are dying of this stuff like crazy in the same area. Even Ebola symptoms vary…that’s why they used to rarely diagnose you with having Ebola unless they knew you have contacted someone with Ebola. Travel/Social history was the #1 or #2 factor in diagnosing it…which is hilarious!

    It was the same with HIV… for a while they would never diagnose someone with HIV based on the test alone… they would only do it if they knew you were homosexual or IV drug user because the test alone was not flawless… not even close. Same with Ebola… only a couple labs in the world can ‘supposedly’ isolate it (which they never have) and the process is extremely complicated with all sorts of things than can create false results. That is why they will only claim someone is Ebola positive if they have other risk factors. Pure fraud! No one has even photographed/isolated it, or satisfied Koch’s Postulates in any way which is why they all pass around the same bogus pictures from 1974 and 1977.
