Plum Island Facility moved to Manhattan, Kansas
June 3, 2015: Plum Island’s move to Kansas: ‘This research facility is an accident waiting to happen’
Groundbreaking for the National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility (NBAF), a $1.25 billion project by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), took place last Wednesday in Manhattan, Kansas. The new facility will focus biosafety level 3 agriculture (BSL-3Ag) research on dangerous livestock diseases such as African swine fever and foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) and will focus its BSL-4 research on such deadly pathogens as the Hendra and Nipah viruses, which are zoonotic pathogens that can be transmitted from animals to humans and for which no treatment is available.
R-CALF USA Vice President Mike Schultz who raises cattle in Brewster, Kansas, said the United States is making a terrible mistake by bringing the live FMD virus into Kansas.
“Congress and the President are ignoring the science that tells us this research facility is an accident waiting to happen,” he said.
When construction is complete, and for the first time since the 1929 FMD outbreak in California, the live FMD virus will once again be reintroduced to the United States’ mainland. Foot-and mouth disease is the most highly infectious animal disease presently known to cloven-footed animals such as cattle, swine, sheep and deer. Nearly 100 percent of exposed animals become infected. To accommodate the DHS’ request to bring the live FMD virus to the mainland, Congress first had to change U.S. law that restricted use of the live FMD virus to coastal islands. Since the 1950s, all U.S. research on FMD was conducted at the Plum Island Animal Disease Center, located on an island off the northern tip of Long Island, New York. …
Topeka ? Kansas officials pressed the federal government Friday to move ahead with construction of a new biosecurity lab near Kansas State University, even though a new, independent report suggested that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security still doesn’t have a good assessment of how safely it could operate.
The congressionally mandated report, from the National Research Council, described a favorable Homeland Security assessment in March as seriously flawed. The federal agency had suggested the risk of an accidental release of foot-and-mouth or another dangerous animal disease was minimal.
The $1.14 billion National Bio- and Agro-Defense Facility would research dangerous animal diseases representing a threat to the nation’s food supply, and backers of the project say it’s vital to national security. Kansas officials also see the lab, with potentially several hundred high-paying jobs, as an engine of economic growth and an anchor for an emerging biosciences industry….
Oh gee, an “accident” waiting to happen. How could they be so stupid? Don’t they love us?
But it’s ok, we’re obviously expendable. After all, the dollar is toast, our industrial infrastructure is decimated, our infants are being injected with RNA viruses, metal nanoparticles, chemical toxins and random bits of DNA and having their genitals mutilated while their mothers are trussed up like cattle, with shrinks and divorce lawyers waiting in the wings to profit from the flood of human misery inflicted by our very expensive medical authority figures. And that’s even before the fake education and fake media and fake music and fake peace movements burrow into their brains. Cuz we have the best medical establishment in the world, just like we have the most free press, free enterprise and free democracy in the world. And still, we can’t shake this feeling that we’re being had. Well, duh. The only difference between the united states and nazi germany is time.
The real question is, how could WE be so stupid.
Seriously, the USA is controlled by satanists. GROW UP.
GOLD is the money of the KINGS, SILVER is the money of the GENTLEMEN, BARTER is the money of the PEASANTS, but DEBT is the money of the SLAVES.
