DHS To Release Bacteria In Boston Subway System


www.infowars.com

Despite the fact that the U.S. government has a history of dangerous biological testing against the American people, the Department of Homeland Security claims that a bacteria it plans to release in the Boston subway later this year to test biological sensors is harmless to healthy people.

“Federal officials say they test the subway sensors by releasing dead bacteria called B-subtilis. They say it is used in food supplements, has been rigorously tested and has no adverse health effects for lo

The bacteria will be released as a means of testing biological sensors that guard against the threat of a bio-terror attack.

If low amounts of this B-subtilis on healthy people causes no harm then why not put an add in the Boston newspaper asking for volunteers who either will or will not get paid to undergo the test?

This way they can ensure only healthy people get exposed to this bacteria and they will be able to monitor it's effects way more closely.

Isn't what I am suggesting more efficient and of course more controlled therefore more safe?

its harmless to healthy people.

what if you have a underlying health problem?

Because they do not want to test it on people.

The sensors are in the tunnels, and that's what they want to test.

If I'm not mistaken this was done before, some years ago.

Biological Sensors in subway stations? WTF?

Nevermind the tests, that's already off the radar psycho.

DHS needs to be disbanded like, yesterday.

This was done without people's knowledge and I'd thought....considered up there with MKUltra and the '___' tests for being underhanded and downright dirty about testing Cold War weapons systems on American civilians. I don't have the material in front of me, but as I recall, it was Boston and New York City subways it was tested in during the bad old days... I want to say, the common cold was the agent being tested so they could guesstimate the actual flow of chemical/bio weapons in a real attack.


Then? It made sense..and we got our answers, I'd guess. Now? What is it with them anyway??? Blackahwks doing combat flying in major cities at night (Miami, Boston, Los Angeles over the last year).. They turn places like Chicago into something even an Israeli in Jersusalem might take a second look and wonder what the hell they're thinking on..and now? Well, if scaring the crap out of everyone wasn't already doing enough, NOW they'll test biological warfare scenarios IN public and USING the public.

I'm not worried the tests will hurt anyone. I'm sure they won't...but that isn't the point. It WILL scare the crap out of people and put that fear DEEP in the minds of all of see it. I'm guessing it sinks deep enough for many to sit long after they can put a finger on what makes them seen anxious and nervous.


Damn this is getting out of hand. Our new logo.... "America! Home of the meek, land of the scared." We fit it to a T.

Like say Hepatitis B?

Perhaps you might be susceptible to some sort of chain reaction?

If zombies start popping up around the Boston Subway system, give me a ring.

I guess we'll have an answer to our questions then.

Last time I rode a subway the stench was incredible. You'd think there was already plenty of bacteria floating around to test the sensors.

I have no clue about all this stuff, but this makes me very weary. Are they going to give us blankets too?

No but maybe they'll give you the vaccine.

Bacillus subtilis, known also as the hay bacillus or grass bacillus, is a Gram-positive, catalase-positive bacterium commonly found in soil



B. subtilis is only known to cause disease in severely immunocompromised patients, and can conversely be used as a probiotic in healthy individuals. It may contaminate food but rarely causes food poisoning. B. subtilis produces the proteolytic enzyme subtilisin. B. subtilis spores can survive the extreme heat during cooking. B. subtilis is responsible for causing ropiness — a sticky, stringy consistency caused by bacterial production of long-chain polysaccharides — in spoiled bread dough.


Chances are no one who is severely immunocompromised should be in the subway anyways.....

That's the biggest problem I see with this, but, according to Wikipedia:


B. subtilis is only known to cause disease in severely immunocompromised patients, and can conversely be used as a probiotic in healthy individuals.


Edit: I was a minute too late.

Wasn't this the same bacteria they sent into space or something and were so surprised it survived when it crashed to earth?

Now, I don't think I have to add another word after that quote. It's rather explicit.

Edit: Ooops I see others had it. Great minds and all that ... we caught on to the keyword "healthy people ..."
