Mike Adams warns Ebola may severely damage U.S. economy in eye-opening interview with Dave Hodges

by Jonathan Benson, staff writer

(NaturalNews) The narrow window for containing Ebola in the U.S. has likely already closed, says Mike Adams, the Health Ranger. During a recent interview with Dave Hodges, host of The Common Sense Show, Adams reveals fresh insights into the Ebola outbreak, explaining that the threat of a widespread pandemic is now upon us all.

This is mostly due to the fact that the federal government and health authorities have done absolutely nothing to prevent the spread of Ebola in the U.S. The southern border with Mexico is still wide open; air travel to and from West Africa continues, and basic safety precautions with regard to containment and decontamination are being completely ignored.

All of these factors and more are fueling a perfect storm for Ebola to sweep the nation, suggests Adams, and the Obama Administration seems completely unconcerned about any of this. Americans are being told to just sit back and relax -- we've got this! -- as the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) salivates in anticipation of payday.

The agency owns the patent on the Ebola virus, after all, which means royalty payments every time a person who contracts the illness is treated for it. In essence, the CDC stands to profit from a major Ebola outbreak here on American soil, hence its apparent lack of concern about preventing the virus from reaching every major city in the country.

Once Americans fear going out in public, economy will shatter

As is already occurring in Sierra Leone and Liberia, the continued spread of Ebola is have a major effect on the regional economy. Farmers are too scared to pick their crops, and merchants are too afraid to sell them, not to mention mandatory border closures that prohibit the import and export of food and other goods between countries.

The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) estimates that, in some of the worst-hit areas of West Africa, up to 40 percent of family farms have been completely abandoned. This has brought the local economy to its knees and created massive food shortages, a dire situation that could eventually culminate in the U.S.

"Once the American people come to believe that it is no longer safe to go in public, our economy will go the way of Liberia's," wrote Hodges, recapping his conversation with Adams. "Truck drivers will not be delivering food and necessary supplies. Chronically ill people will not be able to get needed medicines."

"The net effect is that 'Just in time delivery' practices, the backbone of our consumer economy, will come to a screeching halt. Famine will become commonplace. Looting will commence and it will become so widespread that the authorities will be powerless in the face of the coming civil unrest."

Suspected cases of Ebola popping up all across America

The mainstream media is currently focusing almost exclusively on the Dallas Ebola victim, tracking the various identification and containment efforts taking place there. But other reports suggest that possible Ebola cases are also popping up in places like Portland, Oregon; New York City; New Jersey; Arizona and elsewhere.

If these reports are corroborated, this would suggest that Ebola is already sweeping the U.S. and that it is only a matter of time before our nation succumbs to the same fate as West Africa. Based on how the sitting regime in Washington, D.C., has handled the outbreak thus far, it would appear that our country is on the brink of a horrific scenario such as this.

"When Ebola hits in full force, there will be no school, no NFL, no movie theater going, no concerts, no Christmas shopping and food will be hard to obtain," added Hodges. "I would strongly suggest preparing now."
