Its a Small World Music – Disneyland
22July2014 Submitted by Michael Snyder of The American Dream blog,
Why are so many plagues hitting the United States all of a sudden? Yes, one can always point out bad stuff that is happening somewhere in the country, but right now we are facing a nightmarish combination of crippling drought, devastating wildfires, disastrous viruses, dying crops and superbugs that scientists don’t know how to kill. And as you will see, we even have a plague of flies down in Mississippi. So what in the world is going on? Is this just a case of bad luck, or is something else happening? At the conclusion of this article, please feel free to tell me what you think. The following are ten plagues that are hitting America right now…
#1 The Plague Of Flies In The Upper Mississippi River Valley
This is perhaps the least dangerous plague, but it is also one of the most interesting. Just recently, a plague of flies was so thick in the upper Mississippi River valley that it showed up on radar…
#2 The Chikungunya Virus
As I wrote about the other day, down in Florida health officials have discovered the very first confirmed cases of the chikungunya virus to be transmitted locally. In other words, it is now being passed to people that have not even traveled out of the country.
An epidemic of the virus has already been declared down in Puerto Rico, and authorities are deeply concerned about the possibility of one up here as well.
Already, cases of the virus have been reported in 30 different states and the total number of cases in the U.S. is more than five times higher than in any other recent year.
If you live in an area that has a lot of mosquitos, you might want to be very, very careful right about now because this is a virus that is exceedingly painful…
#3 The Wildfires Out West
The massive wildfires in Washington, Oregon and western Canada have spread clouds of smoke over vast areas of the northwest United States in recent days. The following excerpt comes from a recent CNN report…
#4 The Drought In California
The nightmarish multi-year drought in the state of California just continues to get even worse.
This week it was reported that 81 percent of California is now experiencing “extreme drought” or worse.
Three months ago, that number was just 68 percent.
And we are being told that downtown Los Angeles is now the driest that it has been since rain records began in 1877.
For much, much more on this, please see my recent article entitled “20 Signs The Epic Drought In The Western United States Is Starting To Become Apocalyptic“.
#5 The Virus That Has Killed Millions Of Our Pigs
A horrific pig virus known as porcine epidemic diarrhea came over from China a little over a year ago.
Since then, it has killed about 7 million pigs, and approximately 100,000 more are dying each week.
#6 Citrus Greening
Have you ever heard of citrus greening disease?
Perhaps not, but it has gotten so bad down in Florida that experts are now saying that the entire citrus industry in the state “could be destroyed”…
#7 Bananas Going Extinct?
You bananas are not safe either.
According to CNBC, the TR4 fungus is spreading so rapidly that it could eventually totally wipe out the variety of bananas that we find in our grocery stores today…
#8 The Number Of Earthquakes Is Increasing
For a long time, scientists tried to deny that the number of earthquakes is increasing.
But now, the USGS is finally admitting that the number of big earthquakes has doubled…
Fortunately, most of the earthquakes in the U.S. so far this year have been relatively small or have been in isolated areas.
But they have been popping up in very unusual areas (such as Oklahoma), and as seismic activity along the Ring of Fire continues to increase, it is probably only a matter of time before one of our major cities gets hit with a major tragedy.
Thanks at least in part to the massive overuse of antibiotics, a new generation of superbugs is arising. Scientists have no way to kill these superbugs, and according to experts they are finding their way “into healthcare facilities nationwide”…
The Fukushima nuclear disaster is the gift that just keeps on giving.
Hundreds of tons of radioactive water are being released into the Pacific on a continual basis, and this could potentially affect our oceans and our food chain for generations to come.
But it is a “slow motion disaster” that is already “old news”, so most Americans don’t think about it anymore. But the truth is that there is a lot of evidence that it should be taken very seriously in this country. For much more on this, please see this article.
In Japan, of course, things are even worse.
In fact, one Japanese doctor that was working in Tokyo says that radiation sickness is rampant in that city…
And this Japanese doctor believes that things are so dire that he says that the entire city of Tokyo should be evacuated…
Just like with Chernobyl, this radioactive material is going to silently make people sick and kill people all over globe for years to come, and most of them will never have any idea what is really happening to them.
2 soldiers near Gaza strip border were taken by helicopter to hospital due to serious injuries from direct hit by mortars.

Are we Slaves?
It is from the Roman era that we get the choice phrase “bread and circuses” — indeed, though if we were all cats we wouldn’t be so slavishly enamored.
Dogs are the better example: loyal, easily trained. Dogs have owners; cats have staff.

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel's Jewish Agency came to the rescue of two Jewish Ukranian families after rebels seized control of Donetsk airport as they were waiting to emigrate to Israel, an agency spokesman said on Tuesday.
The two families, numbering six people, were stranded at the airport when it was shut down on Monday. The agency then launched a "fast-paced operation, spokesman Avi Mayer said.
The families were driven to the Ukrainian city of Dnepropetrovsk then flown to Kiev where they boarded a plane for Tel Aviv, Mayer said. He gave no further details.
The Jewish Agency handles relations with Jews around the world and cooperates with Israel's Immigration Ministry.
Jewish immigration from Ukraine has more than doubled since the start of the year over 2013 figures, the agency said. Israel has seen 762 immigrants arrive from Ukraine between January and April, compared to 315 over the same period a year ago.
The agency is preparing to help facilitate the departure of more families from Donetsk should the hostilities there continue.
Agency chairman Natan Sharansky, a former Soviet dissident who was born in Donetsk, said in a statement: "Due to the current situation in the country we have significantly expanded our activities, assisting those who wish to immigrate to Israel."
An estimated 11,000 Jews live in Donetsk and about 130,000 in all of Ukraine.
An Israeli immigration official said some recent newcomers from Ukraine to Israel had flown in initially as tourists then asked for citizenship. Israeli law offers citizenship to any Jews who apply for it.
Sharansky himself was jailed for his human rights activities in the then Soviet Union and was freed in 1986 after nine years in prison as part of an East-West spy swap.
