Money-Making Companies, the U.S. Government and Ebola Treatment

EBOLA-BILLBOARD-600-x-450    Because internet and news media stories remain swamped with stories about possible world-wide Ebola virus outbreaks, we thought it best to combine resources for careful consideration of what can be ascertained as “fact.”

Dr. Ad Versery:  First, what company actually produced the drug now given to two American Ebola patients now treated in Atlanta hospital. Washington Post reporters Lenny Bernstein and Brady Dennis insist it is Mapp Biopharmaceutical:

“Charles Arntzen, Regents’ professor at the Biodesign Institute at Arizona State University, who has collaborated for the past 15 years with Mapp Biopharmaceutical, the tiny San Diego company that produced the experimental serum given to the two Americans.”

I.B. Wells, IV: But if MAPP produced the drug, why is the: Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and Department of Defense funding a biotech company in Canada, called Tekmira Pharamaceuticals (TKMR on the stock market) to produce the serum?

Aimee Picchi of Money Watch then writes:  “But like everything related to Ebola, the story isn’t all that clear-cut. The company disclosed last month that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration placed the treatment’s trial on hold as it sought to ensure that higher doses are safe, with Tekmira adding that the issue should be cleared up by year-end.” Year’s end? People in Africa die by hundreds! She adds:

“The treatment is considered one of the most advanced medications for Ebola, Vox notes. The company has been awarded a $140 million contract from the Department of Defense to develop the therapy, which protected 100 percent of primates infected with a lethal dose of the virus in an earlier study.”

Ad Versery: Wait Ida, it gets more confusing: “Others are also working on Ebola treatments, with Canada’s National Microbiology Laboratory in Winnipeg working on an antibody cocktail with San Diego’s Mapp Pharmaceutical, Toronto-based Defyrus Inc. and the U.S. Army. Meanwhile, Dr. Anthony Fauci of the National Institutes of Health told ‘CBS This Morning’ that the agency is hopeful about potential treatments to prevent infection, although he didn’t specify which company or institute is developing it,” she adds.

Wells:  Add to that, the ole nemesis Monsanto––you know the kill bees with ‘fertilizers’, plant artificial food company––also shares these ‘investments.’  Mike Adams at Natural News writes:  “Tekmira Pharmaceuticals, a company working on an ant-Ebola drug, just received a $ 1.5 million cash infusion from none other than Monsanto. . . The deal is valued at up to $ 86.2 million . . . !  He says Tekmira also got a $ 140 million contract with the U.S. military for Ebola drugs.

Maleekie: Please stop!  I can take no more.  Do you mean that now some 1,000 people in Africa are dead, and that Ebola-Killing-the-Peopleonly a so-called Christian organization, Samaritans Purse, was given the drugs to save two Americans, and none were sent to Africa. Please in The Name of God, tell me what kind of Christianity is that!

Adversary: I understand Maleekie. We had better contact Rev. Repriestly for earnest prayer about these issues.  This cannot go on!  The world faces an Ebola epidemic where millions could die so that a few companies––financed by the U.S. government––could make money, and that with risking Americans‘ lives too!

Wells: Can we make a wholesale Christian sweatshirt combining Acts 8: 20: “But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God [i.e. Life] may be purchased with money,” with 1 Timothy 6: 10: “For the love of money is the root of all evil”? It’d make a great shirt!
