Possible Epidemic? The Chikungunya Virus Is Starting To Spread In America
Cases of the chikungunya virus are appearing in the United States at a level that is far higher than anything health officials have seen in recent years, and now there are two confirmed cases of people that have not even traveled out of the country getting the virus. That means that the chikungunya virus is starting to spread in America, and once it starts spreading it is really hard to stop. Instead of spreading human to human, this virus actually spreads “person-to-mosquito-to-person”. If you live in an area of the country where there are a lot of mosquitos, you should pay close attention to this article. You do not want to get the chikungunya virus. According to Slate, the name of this virus “comes from a Makonde word meaning ‘that which bends up,’ referring to the contortions sufferers put themselves through due to intense joint pain.” That does not sound fun at all. Fortunately, the U.S. has not really been affected by this disease in recent years, but an epidemic has already been declared in Puerto Rico, and some experts are now saying that it is only a matter of time before we see one in the United States.
From 2006 to 2013, the largest number of cases of the chikungunya virus in the U.S. in a single year was just 65.
But by July 15th of this year there were already 357 reported cases, and health officials are bracing for the worst.
Of course of biggest concern is what just happened in Florida. For the first time, health officials have isolated cases of the chikungunya virus that they know were transmitted locally…
U.S. health officials on Thursday confirmed two locally acquired cases of chikungunya in Florida. In Puerto Rico, the government has declared an epidemic of the mosquito-borne virus, with reports of more than 200 diagnosed cases since June 25 in San Juan and surrounding areas.
On Thursday, the CDC confirmed a 50-year-old male in Palm Beach, Fla. was diagnosed with the virus, and had not recently traveled outside the country. Florida state health officials are also reporting a 41-year-old woman in Miami Dade Country has been diagnosed with locally transmitted chikungunya. The CDC has not yet provided confirmation on the second case. Local transmission occurs when the insect bites a person with the infection and then transmits the virus by biting others.
So if you live in south Florida, you should really be trying to avoid mosquitos right about now.
But Florida is not the only state that is on high alert at this point.
Over in Texas, there have been five confirmed cases of the chikungunya virus so far. The following is an excerpt about one that was just discovered in Montgomery County…
The Montgomery County Public Health District is confirming their first case of the Chikungunya virus.
“The individual is a male teenager of Montgomery County who has recently traveled outside of the United States,” said Jennifer Nichols-Contella, Public Information Officer for the Montgomery County Public Health District.
And health officials in Kentucky were quite alarmed when they recently found a confirmed case in their state…
“We have been testing our first potential cases of Chikungunya virus in Kentucky residents who recently traveled to areas where the disease is present, and have received confirmation of one positive result so far,” said Dr. Kraig Humbaugh, state epidemiologist and DPH deputy commissioner.

Silver Opium – The Eastern Revenge
When I began to explore the opium wars, which began in the early 1700?s and came into full view in the early 1800?s, Britain, France and the United States, had taken full aim at China in the name of “free trade”. Things haven’t changed all that much since the West looked East to find a flow of wealth they could not control.
The Chinese had a lock on trade in the early 1700?s by having products that people wanted to purchase, silk, tea and porcelain in particular. The Chinese were not that interested in what the East had to offer. At the time silver was not only money, but it was the currency of the day. People used silver like we use worthless paper dollars/debit cards today. The biggest difference from then to now is that silver has value and the dollar is a promise to generate more debt. I find it interesting that Rothschild began taking over the global banking system towards the end of the opium war and just prior to the Civil War in the United States.
“The few who understand the system, will either be so interested from it’s profits or so dependant on it’s favors, that there will be no opposition from that class.” — Rothschild Brothers of London, 1863 (source)
It seems like the more things change, the more they stay the same.
“The modern banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is, perhaps, the most astounding piece of sleight of hand that was ever invented. Banks can in fact inflate, mint and un-mint the modern ledger-entry currency.” Major L L B Angus. (source)
So, you see these banksters have understood and implemented their evil genius for well over 150 years. They knew during the opium wars in the 1700 and 1800?s and they know today. I believe the banksters are losing control of the current narrative, the same way they did during the opium wars. Thus having to create real war to distract and steal unabated. The narrative today is that Russia is the problem, Iran is the problem, the President of Syria is the problem, etc.. This is to distract from the real problem which is the USDollar, not only losing it’s world reserve currency status, but losing all it’s value due to the transfer of wealth through money printing by the Federal Reserve.
So, what role did silver play at the very beginning of this wealth transfer? What role does it play today?
Silver was being drained out of Britain and the United States and the two countries, being tied at the hip, joined forces and created a problem, which generated a reaction and the criminal elite provided the solution. Nothing has changed, the same play-book is being used against you today. Are you paying attention?
The British introduced opium along with tobacco as an export item to China in order to reduce the trade deficit. Under the disguise of free trade, the British, the Spanish and the French, with the tacit approval of the Americans, continued sending their contraband to China through legitimate as well as illegitimate trade channels even after the Chinese dynasty put an embargo on opium imports.
All the silver (read money) was moving from West to East–the same as today–and the Anglo-American axis could only offer debt and death–the same as today. By supplying (read bootlegging) drugs into China and creating a huge population of addicts the West was able to completely change the “currency” China was using from silver to opium. They were unsuccessful at stopping the flow of silver completely but they were able to change the overall movement from West to East. By 1838 the West was, illegally, exporting 1,400 TONS of opium annually, a 100 fold increase in 100 years. Can you imagine the number of addicts 1,400 tons of opium would create? The Chinese authorities sure could and they were doing everything within their power to slow or stop the importation of opium into their country.
Silver is money and was used as coined currency, the world over, right up the 1960?s. The United States stopped using minted silver coins in 1964 and another round of debasement was underway. This was one of the last major currency debasements to happen. The banksters weren’t done, but this was a heist on a scale similar to 1933. The theft of a nations wealth was being finalized.

Perry’s Had Enough – Texas to Deploy 1,000 National Guard Troops on Mexican Border
Following Rick Perry’s disgust with Barack Obama’s trivial treatment of the invasion of illegal immigrants across the US/Mexico Borders, the Texas Governor is ready to call upon 1,000 National Guard troops and deploy them to the Rio Grande Valley, according to a state official’s office memo.
Governor Perry said at a Republican barbecue in Iowa on Sunday, “If the federal government does not do its constitutional duty to secure the Southern border of the United States, the state of Texas will do it.”
According to RT:
State Sen. Juan “Chuy” Hinojosa, a Democrat from the Rio Grande Valley town of McAllen that has been hit hard by the flood of illegal immigrants crossing the border, confirmed the activation to the Houston Chronicle on Sunday night. Over 57,000 children from Central America have entered the country illegally so far this year.
“The senator understands that Perry wants this troop build-up but is not sure what kind of federal approval he needs for it. He just knows he wants to deploy 1,000 troops there,” Hinojosa spokeswoman Jennifer Saenz said to the Chronicle.
Hinojosa opposes the deployment of troops. “My position is that we do not need to militarize the border,” Hinojosa told the Houston paper, adding that the area has requested help for additional law enforcement and also resources to feed, clothe and provide health checkups for the large influx of juvenile migrants.
“The National Guard are not needed here… They have a different mission. They have a military mission,”the state senator said.
State officials stressed that the Guard members and DPS troopers do not amount to a militarization of the border by Texas. “The DPS and the National Guard are working to keep any drug and human trafficking south of [US Highway] 83 and with the goal of keeping any smuggling from entering major highways to transport East/West/and North,” a leaked memo from a state official’s office said, according to the McAllen Monitor.
Hinojosa also added that the move by Perry smacked of political gamesmanship. “All these politicians coming down to border, they don’t care about solving the problem, they just want to make a political point,” he said.
While some have said that deploying National Guard troops amount to the militarization of the border, the memo says otherwise.
“This is not a militarization of the border,” the memo states. “The DPS and the National Guard are working to keep any drug and human trafficking south of (U.S. Highway) 83 and with the goal of keeping any smuggling from entering major highways to transport East/West/and North.”
“Smuggling has supposedly according to DPS moved West on the border with an increase in Jim Hogg County,” the memo states. “DPS especially wants to apply the Guard in the rural areas to patrol.”

New World Disorder: Emerging Division Between East And West Threatens To Plunge The Globe Into Chaos
In general, over the last several decades the world has experienced an unprecedented era of peace and prosperity. The opening up of relations with China and the “end of the Cold War” resulted in an extended period of cooperation between east and west that was truly unique in the annals of history. But now things are shifting. The civil war in Ukraine and the crash of MH17 have created an enormous amount of tension between the United States and Russia, and many analysts believe that relations between the two superpowers are now even worse than they were during the end of the Cold War era. In addition, the indictment of five PLA officers for cyber espionage and sharp disagreements over China’s territorial claims in the South China Sea (among other issues) have caused U.S. relations with China to dip to their lowest point since at least 1989. So could the emerging division between the east and the west ultimately plunge us into a period of global chaos? And what would that mean for the world economy?
For as long as most Americans can remember, the U.S. dollar and the U.S. financial system have been overwhelmingly dominant. But now the powers of the east appear to be determined to break this monopoly. Four of the BRICS nations (China, Russia, India and Brazil) are on the list of the top ten biggest economies on the planet, and they are starting to make moves to become much less dependent on the U.S.-centered financial system of the western world. For example, just last week the BRICS nations established two new institutions which are intended to be alternatives to the World Bank and the IMF…
So in their summit, from July 14 to 16, the five BRICS announced two major initiatives aimed squarely at increasing their power in global finance. They announced the launch of the New Development Bank, headquartered in Shanghai, that will offer financing for development projects in the emerging world. The bank will act as an alternative to the Washington, D.C.—based World Bank. The BRICS also formed what they’re calling a Contingent Reserve Arrangement, a series of currency agreements which can be utilized to help them smooth over financial imbalances with the rest of the world. That’s something the IMF does now.
Clearly, the idea is to create institutions and processes to supplement — and perhaps eventually supplant — the functions of those managed by U.S. and Europe. And they would be resources that they could control on their own, without the annoying conditions that the World Bank and the IMF always slap on their loans and assistance.
This comes at a time when both China and Russia are seeking to emphasize their own currencies and move away from using the U.S. dollar so much.
Even in the western media, it is being admitted that China’s yuan is “a growing force in global finance“, and according to CNBC the use of Chinese currency in international trade is growing very rapidly…
Of the German companies profiled, 23 percent are using the renminbi to settle trades, up from 9 percent last year, while usage in Hong Kong rose to 58 percent from 50 percent and to 17 percent from 9 percent in the U.S.
Usage of the renminbi among French companies – a new addition to this year’s list – was high at 26 percent.
And of course Russia has been actively pursuing a “de-dollarization strategy” for months now. Each new round of economic sanctions pushes Russia even further in the direction of independence from the U.S. dollar, and Gazprom has been working hard to get large customers to switch from paying for natural gas in dollars to paying for natural gas in euros and other currencies. For much more on this, please see my previous article entitled “Russia Is Doing It – Russia Is Actually Abandoning The Dollar“.
