Why does the US Government have a patent on ebola virus?

Dr. Weeks’ Comment:  Governments throughout history  have weaponized anything they can get their hands on and our US Government is no exception. Governments have used weapons against attackers and also against citizens exercising civil disobedience.  The Tuskegee Syphilis “study” from 1932-1972 is the most historically accepted example of government unjustly attacking one segment of the population which it is constitutionally obligated to protect. 


Now for some curious facts.

FACT #1:   Did you know that the ebola virus has never been isolated in human blood?  I will repeat that so you know you read it correctly. The ebola virus has never been isolated in human blood. 

David Rasnick, PhD, announced this shocking finding: “I have examined in detail the literature on isolation and Ems [EM: electron microscope pictures] of both Ebola and Marburg viruses. I have not found any convincing evidence that Ebola virus (and for that matter Marburg) has been isolated from humans. There is certainly no confirmatory evidence of human isolation.”   Ponder that.


FACT #2:  Last year, Obama sent soldiers to Africa to help with the ebola outbreak. Did that strike you as curious?  (Did you know soldiers can not refuse vaccinations? When confronted with anthrax vaccination, many air force reserve pilots quit rather than be vaccinated.)


FACT #3:   Well, perhaps it will also surprise you to learn that our government has patented the ebola virus and “pharmaceutically acceptable carriers”. (see below)

“… The invention is related to compositions and methods directed to a novel species of human Ebola (hEbola) virus…”

The invention also covers formulations comprising the hEbola virus and a pharmaceutically acceptable carrier.

FACT #4: However, in 2013, the Supreme Court ruled in the Myriad Genetics case  that “A naturally occurring DNA segment is a product of nature and not patent eligible merely because it has been isolated,” invalidating Myriad’s patents on the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes. However, the Court also held synthesized DNA sequences, not occurring in nature, can still be eligible for patent protection.”
How to understand all these curious facts?  It is hard. But give it a try.
