Bombshell: scientist finds no reliable evidence Ebola virus ever isolated from a human being

Scientist finds no reliable evidence Ebola virus ever isolated from a human being

I recently had an exchange of emails with David Rasnick, PhD.

You can read Rasnick’s bio at his site, He obtained his PhD from the Georgia Institute of Technology, and spent 25 years working with proteases (a class of enzymes) and protease inhibitors. He is the author of the book, The Chromosomal Imbalance Theory of Cancer. He was a member of the Presidential AIDS Advisory Panel of South Africa.

The subject of our conversation was the isolation of the Ebola virus from humans. Has it ever been done?

Direct isolation is far different from diagnostic tests such as antibody or PCR, which are both indirect methods of assessment. In previous articles, I’ve covered the irrelevance of these two tests.

Any discussion of the Ebola virus must begin with the question of direct isolation. The whole presumption of an Ebola outbreak and epidemic rests on that question.

Was the Ebola virus ever purified and isolated from a human?

Here is what Rasnick wrote, after his search of the published literature:

“I have examined in detail the literature on isolation and Ems [EM: electron microscope pictures] of both Ebola and Marburg viruses. I have not found any convincing evidence that Ebola virus (and for that matter Marburg) has been isolated from humans. There is certainly no confirmatory evidence of human isolation.

“I searched the CDC’s website and came up dry.

“The CDC claims 7728 Ebola virus cases have been ‘laboratory-confirmed’.

“I asked the CDC what constitutes isolation of Ebola virus from human specimens. I also asked for the protocol for isolating Ebola virus. [No reply from the CDC as of this date.]

“Virtually everything that is known and done with these viruses is in animals and cell culture.”

Rasnick continued:

“There is the possibility that Ebola and Marburg viruses represent laboratory artifacts. I’m inclined to think this is the case. What I mean is the viruses are real but may exist at very low levels in wild animals and even humans, well-below pathogenic [disease-causing] levels. These ‘passenger’ viruses may be activated and amplified in laboratory culturing conditions designed for that purpose in order to produce enough viral particles to be characterized.

“Viruses causing real pathology are abundant in the diseased tissues. You can see them using EM on the primary tissue. You do not need to amplify the virus in cell culture. I’m always suspicious when cell culture is the only way a virus is observable by EM.”

power outside the matrix

Rasnick’s findings are a direct challenge to the basis of the whole “Ebola outbreak.” If indeed the Ebola virus has never been isolated from a human being, the so-called epidemic is unproven.

To say this is shocking would be a vast understatement.

When public-health officials and governments claim there is an epidemic, the burden of proof is on them.

At this point, they must, first and foremost, show someone, somewhere, correctly and directly and undeniably isolated Ebola virus from a human being.

Let’s see the evidence. Now.

    So do you think the outbreak in Africa has anything to do with the 100 million meningitis vaccinations given in the heavily affected reagions? There are also lots of bio-weapons labs there. ??

    Thank you, Jon, and thanks to David Rasnick for this!! We need more people telling the truth!

    “To say this is shocking would be a vast understatement.” Not shocking at all, Dr. Stefan Lanka has been saying this for years. This goes for all the so-called pathogenic viruses, none of them have ever been isolated, purified, photographed and characterized from a sick human being. The virus fraud:

    • Livia says:

      I am sorry, I am totaly lost my way at this point. OK, I thougt by myself (seeing fake smelling videos and photos of mainstream media about Ebola) that this pandemic is probably a fake. [When searching the web using] I found Mr Rappoport’s articles about it and I agree with Mr Rapporot (and very grateful to him for his work) on many-many point like possible poisoning caused deaths which happened in Africa instead of virus caused pandemic.

      BUT – and sorry, could anyone please be so kind and explain the rest to me? I am not so educated but to reach any positive change on the field of vaccinations or health-care we should be able to persuade people and most of them probably not better educated than myself – I just could not deny what I saw, experienced.

      If there is no viruses (no proof for their existence) what is in vaccines???

      I met with cat-flu due to vaccines. Before that I never experienced a cat-flu case with my own cats in 30 years. I saw cats walking around sick in the road or in our garden (feral cats who probably did not got food enough) and for first look they looked like sick because of cat-flu (according to my knowledge, [ web searches], vets, etc). But we never been affected by this illness which was stated to be:

      1. virus caused illness
      2. airborne and very highly infectious

      Vaccination part:
      7 same aged kitten, 4 got vaccines and 3 did not.
      Two days after 3 went ill from the 4 vaccinated and 2 went ill from the 3 non-vaccinated kittens with same symptomes (cat-flu like sypmtomes), ill kittens (5 all together) started being sick in the same time (half day diffence at most, one by one). They used same room and shared same bowl and illness caused flowing salvia. But none of my adult cats (who came and went in that room often on a way to go upstairs to their own younger kittens) or any other kittens did not went sick. None of them.

      See my problem? It could not be a poison like mercury of formaldehyde. It must have been something infectious which spreaded infection via salvia. What was that I saw / experienced if viruses do not exist? Or we are just talking about (Dr Lanka is talking about) that there is something “outside” but as we can’t see, can’t isolate we consdier it to be a zero / nothing? Or we just do not know what it is, it does not fit to the criterias of bacterias or any other small stuff we’ve known and we simply have no idea because of the lack of tech to see, examin and identify it properly?

      And again: Than what is in their needles, ampullas?

      Sorry if I am simply silly and ingorant, but I can’t understand / digest this part and if I can’t others with simle minds probably won’t either. Thanks in advance.

    So what are people dying of? (Not being a troll-just a real question).

    • Debra Haworth says:

      Over there? Many reasons.

    • theodorewesson says:

      * Here are a few “vectors” to consider for the deaths of West Africans in West Africa: starvation, wars, contaminated water supplies, overcrowding, theft of fertile farm land and other natural resources, toxic vaccine campaigns, pesticides.

      * Here is a “vector” to consider for the deaths of western doctors in West Africa: “Ebola health workers in boiling hot suits, toxic chemicals”

      “Is this really why Ebola health workers are collapsing?”

    • elnura1 says:

      The recent Ebola outbreak in Africa coincides with a massive Meningitis Vaccine campaign targeting over 100 million Africans; notably including all four African countries (Guinea, Nigeria, Liberia, Sierra Leone) caught in the epicentre of the viral spread.

      The cost-effective vaccine, MenAfriVac®,(less than US$0.50 per dose) was “kept outside the cold chain for up to four days at up to 40°C”.

      Vaccine Resistance Movement is investigating the link between this extremely toxic experimental vaccine and the sudden surge in cases of Ebola.

      Symptoms of ‘Acute fulminating Meningococcal Septicemia’, a virulent form of bacterial meningitis (marked by extreme vomiting, hemorrhaging – excessive bleeding around the eyes & mouth, severe blackish bruising on the arms & legs), closely resemble those seen in Ebola victims.

      Why has the Ebola virus suddenly erupted in a region of Africa known as the “Meningitis Belt”? Because the WHO & CDC are deliberately trying to cover up their bloody tracks once again.

      This supposed outbreak of Ebola bares all the hallmarks of a rarified, virulent strain of bacterial Meningitis, ‘Acute fulminating Meningococcal Septicemia’, also known as ‘Waterhouse-Friderichsen Syndrome’. Another case of a dangerous, untested vaccine triggering a tsunami of viral mutations – in impoverished regions.


      • Livia says:

        It’s an interesting piece of info in the puzzle, thanks for it. But it does not explain one thing to me. Why CNN and NYT used fake-smelling videos and photos to demonstrate a pandemic? It is does not matter that ill-looking people went ill via ebola or via vaccine while they are ill-looking enough especially with ‘ebola-signs’ It would be easier to make photos and videos about that ill-looking people than using very fitt-looking crisis actors for making fake scenes.

        another thing I can’t understand unless your comment means that vaccine was able to infect non-vaccinated people and reportes are too afraid to go close enough for making real videos and photos… (?)

  6. Heiko says:

    Supposedly people over there are really dying in numbers as is being propagated it could with absolute certainty have multiple reasons. The general living conditions are not far of from the ones in the Middle Ages in Europe when the average life expectancy and mortality rate was nothing like today. An Austrian medic by the name of Dr. Loibner wrote an interesting piece a couple of weeks ago where he suggested the actual current symptoms we are being shown in the media have a strong resemblance to pox which often have their origin from drinking foul water. These pox which are completely forgotten in western societies still occur till this day in tropical regions around the world.

    For reference

  7. Libby says:

    Yes, what is causing the symptoms in all those people, then?

    HERE’S Why Ebola Is No Longer In the News
    by George Washington on 11/03/2014

    Forbes’ David Kroll – an adjunct professor at Duke University Medical Center – notes:

    The Associated Press and other press outlets have agreed not to report on suspected cases of Ebola in the United States until a positive viral RNA test is completed.

    • ozziethinker says:

      Forgive my ignorance, but…

      What will testing viral RNA reveal and how effective is a) the test, b) the results in confirming Ebola virus causes symptoms leading to rapid death in humans that are diagnosed “Ebola positive”?

      As this is a “propaganda exercise” Ebola is still very prominent Big News.

    • Livia says:

      Seems to be false guessing. I do not think there is any Ebola pandemic in Africa or even US. Why? If there is a real pandemic why CNN and New York Times use fake videos and photos??? In a case of a pandemic they should have real proof videos and photos. That’s all. Rest is mostly guessing like what kills people, Red Cross’ needles or poisoned wells.
      This guy is clearly not dying nor even sick. Look!

      This is enough proof to me for a faked pandemic, sorry.

  9. crazythinking says:

    ok then explain the doctors coming back from over there that have “ebola”

    • ozziethinker says:

      It seems to me whether one has to question whether they are actual doctors and whether they have “Ebola” (which, theoretically, does not exist as a “human condition”)

    • From Québec says:

      Again, from previous article of Jon Rappoport:

      Q: What about the non-virus factors that have made health workers sick and killed them in West Africa?

      A: Again, you need to analyze every case uniquely. But health workers are wearing hazmat suits sealed off from the outside, and they’re taking one-and-two hour shifts in those boiling suits, losing an astonishing five liters of body fluid in an hour. Then they come out, take off the suits, rehydrate, douse themselves with toxic disinfectants, and go back in soon for another shift and lose more body fluids. In one case, a doctor stated toxic chlorine was actually inside his haz-mat suit with him while he worked. What I’m describing here could cause anyone to collapse.

      If we can believe the scattered reports that many health workers in West Africa are dying at a very, very high rate, then I have to say something is wrong with those reports.

      Q: Why?

      A: Because if we were talking about a real viral outbreak as the cause, at that rate of death among health workers, the rest of West Africa would be seeing hundreds of thousands of deaths by now. So either the reports of deaths among health workers are false, or if they’re true, somebody or something which is non-viral is killing them. It’s that simple.

      The Ebola hoax: questions and answers

    • Livia says:

      According to my knowledge about Ebola Zaire’s symptoms none of the so called sick doctors or nurses had Ebola. Read Prestons’s documentary kind book about Ebola, very detailed. If Preston’s whiteness didn’t lie and why they would, it’s an ‘old’ book, these people on photos and videos surely did not have Ebola.

  10. ozziethinker says:

    Agreed 100%, Jon.

    I am glad you have access to one of the few incorruptible scientists.

    As this is the hinge pin of my latest topical post, I’ll resubmit the link.

    On a side note, I am surprised Rense has devoted an entire section to promoting the Ebola epidemic as “real”.

    I replaced MSN with his website for when I open up IE, but I am alarmed at his selection of permanent links

  11. elnura1 says:

    Something I just read:
    And once more Dr. Stefan Lanka a few years ago: “All vaccination programmes in the third world are, from a scientific point of view, under the strongest suspicion of deliberate genocide, the decimation of the indigenous population away from the eyes of the world, even the so-called Ebola cases are in reality some of the worst vaccine-induced injuries, since in Africa they sometimes “work” with doses that are 1,000 times higher than in Europe and so these are more likely side effects of criminal human experiments.”


    The German Medical Review 118 of 29 June 2000 (Ärzte-Zeitung) had already admitted that vaccine doses with 100-1,000 higher concentrations than what is used in Europe had been given and had led to numerous deaths of African babies in the nineties.

    Vaccines are 1,000 times higher!!! Never knew this and it sure isn’t published. I would say most African citizen are immunocompromised. In this state of health it won’t take much to cause death.

  12. […] As I reported several days ago, chemist David Rasnick, PhD, has examined published literature on Ebola, and has concluded: […]
