Two Halloweens ago — in 2012 — the Department of Homeland Security shelled out a vast amount of money to an unknown number of participants — $1,000 each — to take part in a five-day conference where military personnel, first responders, and law-enforcement workers were trained in overcoming a zombie attack.
Makeup was applied to dozens of actors who roamed around like the walking dead, thirsty for brains, while law enforcement types learned how to shoot them in the head. This, believe it or not, went on for nearly an entire week at a HALO Counter-Terrorism Summit, which would have costed upwards of millions of dollars to put on.
Republican Sen. from Oklahoma, Tom Coburn, issued a report disgusted at such a waste of taxpayers money.
“[Strategic Operations] performed two shows on Halloween, which featured 40 actors dressed as zombies getting gunned down by a military tactical unit. Conference attendees were invited to watch the shows as part of their education in emergency response training. [HALO president Brad] Barker explained that, ‘the idea is to challenge authorities as they respond to extreme medical situations where people become crazed and violent, creating widespread fear and disorder,’” —Safety At Any Price: Assessing the Impact of Homeland Security Spending in U.S Cities, Tom Coburn, DHS, (Dec. 2012).
But, believe it or not, those weren’t the only “zombie domination” conferences conducted by official United States defense authorities:
“’Zombie disaster’ drills were held in October 2012 and ’13 at California’s Sutter Roseville Medical Center. The exercises allowed medical center staff ‘to test response to a deadly infectious disease, a mass-casualty event, terrorism event and security procedures,’ [said] Erik Angle, Sutter’s emergency preparedness program coordinator.” —New York Post, (Oct. 13, 2014).
As crazy as that all sounds, and it is crazy, a year prior — in 2011 — the American Department of Defense released a lengthy manual titled CONPLAN 8888, which listed its purposes to:
a. (U) Establish and maintain a vigilant defensive condition aimed at protecting humankind from zombies
b. (U) If necessary, conduct operations that will, if directed, eradicate zombie threats to human safety
Now, while this may seem like a joke, I can assure you it isn’t. The document states right in its opening disclaimer:
“This plan was not actually designed as a joke. During the summers of 2009 and 2010, while training augmentees from a local training squadron about the JOPP [Joint Operational Planning Process], members of a USSTRATCOM [US Strategic Command] component found out (by accident) that the hyperbole involved in writing a ‘zombie survival plan’ actually provided a very useful and effective training tool.”
The manual, which also states it used the zombie scenario as a means to make sure the public knew they were seeing a drill and not a real-life situation, goes on for pages describing the different classes of zombies — from PZ’s, which are Pathogenic Zombies, to CZ’s, which are Chicken Zombies, and which the document states are “the only proven class of zombie that actually exists.”
In such a situation as zombies becoming infected everywhere and being deemed a “threat to human survival”, the United States government notes all strategies to “Kill and burn” those infected “will be executed concurrently with a declaration of martial law within CONUS [48 states that make up the continental United States, excluding Alaska and Hawaii] and US territories.”
The madness and gobs of taxpayer money being spent on zombie education doesn’t stop there, either. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention put out a novella in 2012 called “Preparedness 101: Zombie Pandemic” in which characters “Todd, Julie, and their dog Max” go on an adventure “as a strange new disease begins spreading, turning ordinary people into zombies.”
Yes all of this was very bizarre a couple years ago, and it still is, but with the recent flooding of Ebola stories in the news getting compared — headline after headline — with the also recent public zombie fascination, could it all be making sense now? Let’s list the agencies actually implementing these “zombie-defense” drills and weeklong courses beside each other and look from that angle:
We have the Department of Homeland Security, Law Enforcement Agencies from around the country, the US Military, US Strategic Command, National first-responders, HALO Counter-Terrorism, the CDC, and the Department of Defense, over the course of 3 years leading up to a worldwide Ebola crisis, conducting drills on how to shoot to citizens if a “zombie” epidemic” were to break out. Really?
Have you seen the above picture? For the last few weeks or so it’s been viral on the internet with a story attached to it saying the man in the photo was a dead Ebola patient who came back to life. In other words, he’s a zombie. Now, of course that story is ridiculous, and it’s been proven, in fact, that the man in the picture is a photoshopped character from the movie World War Z — which is about a zombie epidemic. The question is: who released this obvious hoax?
One thing to keep in mind is that as well as stating, “This plan is actually not designed as a joke” — meaning the protocol the students learn is to be remembered and obeyed as United States military direct orders — the “zombie domination” manual CONPLAN 8888 clearly wrote their offensive strategy as using “denial, deception, disruption, degradation, and destruction” as their means to “neutralize” the threat and keep the public calm. As this whole Ebola craze has unfolded over the last month or so, another thing is also for sure too. As conspiracy theories against the United States having genetically engineered this newest — and deadliest — Ebola strain began to fly, this “zombie” picture was suddenly released and tied in with all other credible bits of skepticism over the crisis that had thus been released. I don’t know, but to me that certainly fits the description of “denial, deception, disruption, degradation, and destruction” of challenging opinions quite accurately. This — denial, deception, and degradation — is also a very well documented tactic of the United States in many national and international crises. Bringing the zombie aspect in the picture with all of these recent zombie drills and conferences by US government terror-defense agencies makes the coincidence all the much stronger.
An article published in Liberia by a Dr. Cyril Broderick, Professor of Plant Pathology, was released with a damning report on how — according to Dr. Broderick — Ebola and AIDS were both engineered by the American government as biological weapons. Dr. Broderick’s research sites many articles, books, and studies, both from Africa and abroad, ranging from the 50’s until today, as proof of his contention. Here’s a piece from that article, which I recommend reading in full when you’re done with this one:
“The World Health Organization (WHO) and several other UN Agencies have been implicated in selecting and enticing African countries to participate in the testing events, promoting vaccinations, but pursuing various testing regiments. The August 2, 2014 article, West Africa: What are US Biological Warfare Researchers Doing in the Ebola Zone? by Jon Rappoport of Global Research pinpoints the problem that is facing African governments.Obvious in this and other reports are, among others:(a) The US Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID), a well-known centre for bio-war research, located at Fort Detrick, Maryland;(b) Tulane University, in New Orleans, USA, winner of research grants, including a grant of more than $7 million the National Institute of Health (NIH) to fund research with the Lassa viral hemorrhagic fever;(c) the US Center for Disease Control (CDC);(d) Doctors Without Borders (also known by its French name, Medicins Sans Frontiers);(e) Tekmira, a Canadian pharmaceutical company;(f) The UK’s GlaxoSmithKline; and(g) the Kenema Government Hospital in Kenema, Sierra Leone.Reports narrate stories of the US Department of Defense (DoD) funding Ebola trials on humans, trials which started just weeks before the Ebola outbreak in Guinea and Sierra Leone. The reports continue and state that the DoD gave a contract worth $140 million dollars to Tekmira, a Canadian pharmaceutical company, to conduct Ebola research. This research work involved injecting and infusing healthy humans with the deadly Ebola virus. Hence, the DoD is listed as a collaborator in a “First in Human” Ebola clinical trial (NCT02041715, which started in January 2014 shortly before an Ebola epidemic was declared in West Africa in March. Disturbingly, many reports also conclude that the US government has a viral fever bioterrorism research laboratory in Kenema, a town at the epicentre of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. The only relevant positive and ethical olive-branch seen in all of my reading is that Theguardian.com reported, ‘The US government funding of Ebola trials on healthy humans comes amid warnings by top scientists in Harvard and Yale that such virus experiments risk triggering a worldwide pandemic.’ That threat still persists.”
The strangest, most suspect move, to at me least, throughout this whole recent Ebola fiasco was the decision to bring the first American with Ebola symptoms in Africa — 33-year-old Kent Brantley — right back to America. Democratically speaking, shouldn’t the decision to bring a deadly disease to a continent for the first time in history be a decision made by more than just the US, or it’s congress — who wasn’t consulted — or even North American state heads? Why did the United States decide to fly this patient right back to Georgia?
For another thing, if this person was a health worker in West Africa fighting Ebola, why would he risk an incredibly long flight back to a country where the disease has never been dealt with before; away from a place where he personally knew the workers who would attend him? Let’s imagine the message this would send to the African patients. “Yeah, we’ll save you from Ebola. Oh shit, I have Ebola! I gotta get the hell outta here or I’m dead!”
No, sorry, this made no sense to me when it happened and it still doesn’t. Whether Georgia’s doctors are the greatest specialists on the planet or not, they should have gone there, not the other way around.
Georgia coincidentally, and hauntingly, is where the Georgia Guidestones sit — an uncommonly expensive 20-foot stone monument commissioned built by an anonymous donor — displaying the “new world’s” 10 commandments in English, Spanish, Swahili, Hindi, Hebrew, Arabic, Chinese, and Russian; number one being: “1. MAINTAIN HUMANITY UNDER 500,000,000 IN PERPETUAL BALANCE WITH NATURE.” If we wanted 500,000,000 people on earth today, in case you’re wondering, 6.42 billion people would have to drop dead first. Eerily the guidestones have just last month had a new tiny stone added that reads: “2014”.
