The economy was taking another downturn this fall anyway.
Now they can blame the "Ebola Crisis."
Like a bankrupt gambler who claims it is not his addiction that is the problem, rather all these lousy poker machines that are not paying off right now.
"You're visiting straight from the hot zone in Liberia as an emergency care worker with Ebola-like symptoms who passed through customs without being examined by a doctor? The CDC said you should go home and mingle with the public for a week. Their stringent monitoring practices require it."
It looks like the race to abandon the dollar is becoming a rout. All we will hear about until the end of the year is how the Ebola Crisis caused the world to lose faith in the dollar as a world currency. Watch and see.
Mainstream media admits preppers exist when it supports their current agenda.
I would bet you anything that if you spoke to 9 out of 10 preppers you would learn that they are stocking up because they know this "Ebola Crisis" is a false flag and they are wondering just what the hell the government is really getting ready to try to pull, like a nationwide quarantine in FEMA camps.
EDIT : One thing I just remembered from Psy-Ops is that our instructor said people who are frightened lose the will to resist authority. It wears them down in short order and they will relent to anyone who seems to be promising them decisive action. This whole thing could be engineered as a means of getting a vote through the Senate on a declaration of war on ISIS which otherwise might not succeed.
