Just one week ago, anyone who predicted even 100,000 Ebola infections was called an alarmist. The idea of 100,000 infections was insane, we were told, because western governments and their medical experts would soon get the outbreak under control.
Yesterday, however, the CDC publicly predicted 550,000 to 1.4 million infections by January, and the numbers were printed by USA Today  and other publications.
Suddenly, the 100,000 prediction is now considered an optimistic “best case scenario.” Alarm bells are ringing through the ears of infectious disease experts everywhere around the world. Could Ebola really surpass one million infections by early 2015?
The CDC’s sudden leap from estimates in the low thousands to a scenario of over one million people is raising lots of question marks, especially given the CDC’s track record of exaggerating pandemic disease reports in order to create demand for drug company vaccines.
After all, the CDC largely fabricated the swine flu outbreak in order to generate billions in vaccine profits a few years back, and all the CDC’s top people are beholden to drug company interests.
So the question is legitimate: Could Ebola really escalate to one million infections by early 2015, or is this just pandemic propaganda being unleashed by the CDC to create market demand for vaccines?
A New York Times article  says that governments are vastly underestimating the number of Ebola infections actually taking place. Official statistics, we are told, may be under-reporting the number of infections by a factor of 2.5.
Even honest attempts to count Ebola victims may be entirely unreliable for the simple reason that Ebola patients no longer run to hospitals for treatment because all the hospital beds are full.
Ebola is clearly replicating at a rapid pace, and a recent study conducted in cooperation with Arizona State University found that each Ebola infection taking place right now results in another 1.4 to 1.7 infections soon thereafter. 
The raw data used for that study show a clear exponential trend in the cumulative number of infections across Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea:
Thus, it’s clear Ebola has the potential to rapidly multiply, just as the CDC is predicting in its worst-case modeling. But the timing is suspicious, of course:
The CDC didn’t release these numbers until after GlaxoSmithKline announced the ridiculously accelerated launch of human clinical trials for an Ebola vaccine — a process which normally requires years of R&D but GSK seems to have magically pulled out of its hat just in time for the CDC to fan the flames of panic.
We are forced to proceed with skepticism at the motivations behind all these actions. If vaccines were non-profit medicine, there would be no financial motive to create them and the dynamics of all this would be clearer to everyone.
But because it’s so profitable to engineer a pandemic panic that results in billions of dollars in vaccine sales, there’s always the question of what’s real and what’s just “medical theater.”
Impossible to separate fact from fiction in this outbreak
My conclusion in all this is that we can’t yet reliably separate fact from fiction in this outbreak. I’m convinced the Ebola outbreak is really happening, yet it may have origins which won’t ever be reported by the popular press.
It is extremely difficult for informed people to sort out all the competing factions in government, the military, the pharmaceutical industry and bioterrorism groups. Each has a different motivation to either exaggerate the perception of the Ebola outbreak or downplay it.
On some days, we’re told the outbreak is under control and there’s nothing to worry about, then other days we hear expert U.S. Senate testimony that describes things like “nations being reduced to ashes” if the outbreak isn’t stopped. (That’s a paraphrase of testimony from Dr. Kent Brantley.)
Because Ebola itself is invisible, we can’t see it directly. So we’re forced to depend on official reports and mainstream media stories which can be easily distorted or entirely fabricated.
Beware of official denials
One thing all the official sources keep insisting right now is that Ebola won’t ever reach America. That’s practically a guarantee that it will, it seems, as these are also the same official sources that claim the federal debt is under control, too.
Ironically, both the national debt and Ebola have one thing in common: compounding interest. Over time, even a small percentage increase can explode into an exponential growth curve, creating “runaway debt” or a “runaway pandemic” which can’t be stopped until something collapses.
I have yet to read any convincing argument from anyone explaining how Ebola infections could possibly be returned to zero after they surpass one million.
I also haven’t heard any thoughtful explanation of how a terrorist group which wants to release Ebola in America might be stopped, especially given the “wide open borders” policy of the White House which outright refuses to enforce American border security.
