- A google search today shows some 41 English pages full
of bloggers -- and a large variety of Dutch, French, German and Afrikaans-
language ones -- all commenting and passing along details of Adriana Stuijt's
recent radio-expose on the Jeff Rense programme of the deadly XDR-TB South
African epidemic 's very infectious mutant TB+HIV SA-1 strain.
- Some bloggers also actively followed up these cited news
reports by, for instance, listening to South African radio stations to
check whether claims of deliberate censorship of this epidemic by the
SA regime also are accurate. Writes one blogger named "GreyBear'
on the compuserve.community: "I listened to a Cape broadcast yesterday
and alerts on this are deliberately being squashed at all levels and being
replaced with more successful stories about short quarantines, medication
and release while under a long treatment with very powerful antibiotics.
It appears the most recent SA-1 strain may be the airborne version of
HIV in the fast-lane..."
- The Jeff Rense radio interview of June 5 has even been
(partially) placed on YouTube:
- One blog was headlined: "Quick-Killing Aids New
strain of TB' and writes:
- "If the numbers on that new strain of TB are correct,
and the data that it has indeed escaped, even to Lesotho, the BIG pandemic
is on. Bond prices soared the day after that lady gave the interview
on rense. And no wonder. This is not the XDR TB already common in the
poor and jails out here in the west, imported mainly by Russian immigrants.
That's pretty well under control. THis is a new strain entirely. And it
requires drugs that themselves are very unpleasant and dangerous, for
an extended period. It's unlikely anyone who hasn't been discovered and
quarantined will turn themselves in for treatment. Rather it appears at
least some have dove into a hole and died quietly, albiet spreading the
illness into the population at large.
- That response by the SA gov., sueing the health center
for quarantining that dozen people, and demanding their release into
the population seems very fishy to me. What do you think? As an aside,
some preparedness folks I communicate with, are relating various alerts.
Some from church, some from official sources, some from others who are
better connected, that it's time to be ready to hunker down for a few
months if need be. NOW. "
