November 2009 Update
Bird Flu, Swine Flu, Tamiflu
and Donald Rumsfeld
It's true that the H5N1 virus which causes bird flu, and the H1N1 virus which causes swine flu, could mutate to become more virulent. But so could hundreds of other viruses (known and unknown) that occur in the wild. So why was H5N1 hyped in the bird flu scare a few years ago, and why is H1N1 being hyped now? Each year about 30,000-40,000 people die from ordinary seasonal flu in the U.S. alone (according to a CDC estimate) and hundreds of thousands die worldwide. But up to the end of August 2009 only a couple of thousand people worldwide had died of swine flu (with or without other medical conditions) — about 1% of the deaths worldwide due to seasonal flu. So why hype H1N1? Is it because a fortune can be made from those who invented and marketed a drug, Tamiflu, which can be presented to a gullible US and worldwide public as a cure, even though it is not? Is it also because an artificially-created public health scare can be used to "justify" legislation to enforce mandatory vaccination and the incarceration (in already-prepared detention camps) of all who refuse?
- Dr. Joseph Mercola: Who Owns the Rights on Tamiflu: Rumsfeld To Profit From Bird Flu Hoax
Not long ago, President Bush sought to instill panic in this country by telling us a minimum of 200,000 people will die from the avian flu pandemic, but it could be as bad as 2 million deaths in this country alone.
This hoax is then used to justify the immediate purchase of 80 million doses of Tamiflu, a worthless drug that in no way shape or form treats the avian flu, but only decreases the amount of days one is sick and can actually contribute to the virus having more lethal mutations.
So the U.S. placed an order for 20 million doses of this worthless drug at a price of $100 per dose. That comes to a staggering $2 billion.
- F. William Engdahl: Tamiflu — a Worthless Drug
He [Rumsfeld] stands to make a fortune on royalties as a panicked world population scrambles to buy a drug worthless in curing effects of alleged Avian Flu. The model suggests the parallel to the brazen corruption of Halliburton Corporation whose former CEO is Vice President Dick Cheney. Cheney's company has so far gotten billions worth of US construction contracts in Iraq and elsewhere. Coincidence that Cheney's closest political friend is Defense Secretary and Avian Flu beneficiary Don Rumsfeld?
- Avian flu claims 2 who took Tamiflu
The experts said the deaths were disturbing because the two had received early and aggressive treatment with Tamiflu and had gotten the recommended doses.
- Avian flu: Worldwide catastrophe or 'fearmongering'?
April 2009 brought "news" which must have had Rumsfeld laughing all the way to the bank: SWINE FLU HITS THE U.S.! (After a "hitherto unknown" virus caused 60 or so deaths in Mexico.)
The U.S. public and the rest of the world was immediately subjected to a controlled-panic campaign reminiscent of the bird flu and the SARS scares of previous years. Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation, said that the disease has "pandemic potential".
This may be true. Scientists said the virus combines genetic material from pigs, birds and humans in a way researchers have not seen before. Amazing! Suddenly a deadly virus combining DNA from three different species appears from nowhere! Or really nowhere? Or perhaps from a U.S. biowarfare lab?
In response to the scare the U.S. government "released" 12.5 million of its stockpiled 50 million doses of Tamiflu, which it had previously bought from Roche, which has a manufacturing and commercialization license from Gilead Sciences Inc., the inventor of Tamiflu. Donald Rumsfeld served as Gilead's chairman from 1997 until he joined the Bush administration in 2001, and he still holds a Gilead stake valued at between $5 million and $25 million. Assuming the swine flu panic takes off (and what's to stop it?) Tamiflu, despite being worthless as a cure for any kind of flu, will be in huge demand, Roche will hardly be able to turn it out fast enough, and Rumsfeld will be in clover.
- Paul Joseph Watson: Medical Director: Swine Flu Was "Cultured In A Laboratory"
"This strain of swine influenza that's been cultured in a laboratory is something that's not been seen anywhere actually in the United States and the world, so this is actually a new strain of influenza that's been identified," said Dr. John Carlo, Dallas Co. Medical Director. ...
The WHO insists that the outbreak has "pandemic potential" and has been stockpiling supplies of Tamiflu ... [T]hose that have a stake in the Tamiflu vaccine include ... former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.
Indeed, Rumsfeld himself played a key role in hyping an outbreak of swine flu back in the 1976 when he urged the entire country to get vaccinated. ... It certainly wouldn't be the first time that deadly flu viruses have been concocted in labs and then dispatched with the intention of creating a pandemic.
- F. William Engdahl: Flying Pigs, Tamiflu and Factory Farms (Also here.)
In October 2005 the Pentagon ordered vaccination of all US military personnel worldwide against what it called Avian Flu, H5N1. Scare stories filled world media. Then, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld announced he had budgeted more than $1 billion to stockpile the vaccine, Oseltamivir sold under the name, Tamiflu. President Bush called on Congress to appropriate another $2 billion for Tamiflu stocks.
What Rumsfeld neglected to report at the time was a colossal conflict of interest. Prior to coming to Washington in January 2001, Rumsfeld had been chairman of a California pharmaceutical company, Gilead Sciences. Gilead Sciences held exclusive world patent rights to Tamiflu, a drug it had developed and whose world marketing rights were sold to the Swiss pharma giant, Roche. Rumsfeld was reportedly the largest stock holder in Gilead which got 10% of every Tamiflu dose Roche sold. When it leaked out, the Pentagon issued a curt statement to the effect that Secretary Rumsfeld had decided not to sell but to retain his stock in Gilead, claiming that to sell would have indicated something to hide.' That agonizing decision won him reported added millions as the Gilead share price soared more than 700% in weeks.
Tamiflu is no mild candy to be taken lightly. It has heavy side effects. It contains matter that could have potentially deadly consequences for a person's breathing and often reportedly leads to nausea, dizziness and other flu-like symptoms.

- Michel Chossudovsky: The H1N1 Swine Flu Pandemic: Manipulating the Data to Justify a Worldwide Public Health Emergency
The Atlanta based Center for Disease Control (CDC) acknowledged that what was being collected in the US were figures of "confirmed and probable cases". There was, however, no breakdown between "confirmed" and "probable". In fact, only a small percentage of the reported cases were "confirmed" by a laboratory test.
On the basis of scanty country-level information, the WHO declared a level 4 pandemic on April 27. Two days later, a level 5 Pandemic was announced without corroborating evidence (April 29). A level 6 Pandemic was announced on June 11. ... Based on incomplete and scanty data, the WHO nonetheless predicts with authority that: "as many as 2 billion people could become infected over the next two years — nearly one-third of the world population." ...
What we are dealing with is a big lie. A process of generating fake data which is then used to justify a nationwide vaccination program.
The political and corporate interests behind this Worldwide public health emergency must be the target of citizens' actions.
This public health emergency is not intended to protect humanity.
The World is at the crossroads of a major economic and social crisis. The Worldwide public health emergency serves to divert public opinion from the real crisis which is affecting the World's people. This crisis is characterised by rising poverty and unemployment an the collapse in social services, not to mention a a US-NATO multitrillion dollar high tech "war without borders" which includes the preemptive "first strike" use of nuclear weapons.
The dramatic causes and consequences of the "real crisis" which in a real sense threatens the future of humanity must remain unheralded. Both the Economic Crisis and the Middle East Central Asian war are the object of routine and persistent media distortion and camouflage. In contrast, the H1N1 swine flu — despite its relatively mild and benign impacts — is depicted as a major "Save the World" endeavor.
- Chelsea Schilling: Massachusetts Pandemic Bill allows Health Authorities to Enter Homes, Detain without Warrant
A "pandemic response bill" currently making its way through the Massachusetts state legislature would allow authorities to forcefully quarantine citizens in the event of a health emergency, compel health providers to vaccinate citizens, authorize forceful entry into private dwellings and destruction of citizen property and impose fines on citizens for noncompliance.
If citizens refuse to comply with isolation or quarantine orders in the event of a health emergency, they may be imprisoned for up to 30 days and fined $1,000 per day that the violation continues.
- Mike Adams: Forced vaccinations, quarantine camps, health care interrogations and mandatory "decontaminations"
Those who resist such vaccines will be arrested and taken away for "isolation" in domestic prison camps. They can't just leave vaccine refusers free to live among the population, of course, because that would send the message that anyone can refuse the vaccines without consequence. So they'll arrest those who refuse the vaccine, labeling them "a threat to national security" (enemies of the state) and imprison them without trial, without charges and without any legal representation whatsoever.
- The Flu Case
This site is the official site of Jane Burgermeister and her investigation regarding the flu vaccines, WHO and the criminal conduct of several companies and organisations. Here evidence is collected and presented which, according to Jane Burgermeister, reveals that there is a plan in action to reduce the world population by using contaminated vaccines. Jane Burgermeister shows that several international organisations are involved with this plan as are several international companies. Together these form a criminal syndicate which in secret intend to "save the planet" from what is considered harmful overpopulation.
- US to share 10 per cent of H1N1 vaccine with other nationsThe US vaccines would be made available to countries through the World Health Organization (WHO), recognising that "diseases know no borders, and the health of the American people is inseparable from the health of people around the world," the White House said.
Bullshit! If the U.S. cared about "the health of people around the world" it would be providing serious money (even just a small fraction of its military budget) for anti-malarial programs, access to safe drinking water, etc. What this announcement means is that the U.S. (via WHO) plans to extend its mandatory toxic vaccination campaign to everyone in all countries, the better, of course, to eliminate Kissinger's "useless eaters".

November 2009 Update
In early November 2009 conflicting reports emerged from the Ukraine concerning a massive outbreak of some strange disease, possibly pneumonic plague. This turned out to be false (pneumonic plague, caused by a bacterium not by a virus, would have killed many thousands of people). But certainly something strange was happening.
In his newslog of 2009-11-19 Richard K. Moore wrote:
We now know the nature of the pathogen that has been genetically concocted for use in this bio-assault. It's a viral combination of H1N1 and parainfluenza, it's aggressive and deadly, and it very rapidly causes hemorrhaging and total destruction of the lungs. It is not a mutation of H1N1, rather it is a separate but related concoction. These characteristics have been confirmed, in varying degrees, by a number of sources:
In his newslog of 2009-11-26 he wrote:
It is very important that you understand there are two different virus pathogens on the loose. The one that showed up in the Ukraine, and now seems to be in Iowa, is NOT a mutation of H1N1, as the US media and the WHO are claiming. In the previous newslog summary we had several independent reports from tests that showed the new virus is a combination of parainfluenza and H1N1 strains. This is also discussed in the video below, which I highly recommend. Baxter has already been caught red-handed sending deadly, contaminated vaccines to several nations, and this was only caught by someone who conducted a test just to be sure they were safe. If it had not been caught there would now be a real pandemic throughout Europe, the kind WHO has been telling us was coming. Now we know why they've been telling us this: they are planning to cause it.
Keep in mind that every case of flu-like symptoms is being recorded as swine flu, without any verification, which grossly over-states the actual number of cases. We know thanks to CBS:
Swine flu hoax: interview w/ star CBS reporter
This accomplishes two things. First, it contributes to the hype so that more people will be willing to take the vaccine. Second, with verifications not being done, it means the media won't be telling us about the second pathogen, but will tell us it's a mutation of swine flu. As the number of deaths from the vaccine-induced new pathogen begins to approach the over-stated statistics we're now getting, it will appear that the WHO was right all along. Diabolically clever.
If you want to understand the science regarding swine flu and vaccines, this is the very best video I've seen. It's a talk by a Spanish nun who is also a medical specialist in the field, and she explains the whole situation in detail. It's a bit long, and uses subtitles, but this is a matter of life and death and the video is worth watching. She makes it very clear that the vaccines should be avoided at all costs, not only because they are likely to be intentionally contaminated, but because they could not possibly be of benefit for the strain of virus we will be facing:
Excellent scientific report on Swine Flu scam (video)
A major review of what data there is in the public domain has found no evidence Tamiflu can prevent healthy people with flu from suffering complications such as pneumonia. ... Roche has made a fortune out of the drug, with sales of £1.6bn this year alone. The British government has stockpiled enough for half the population.
The degree of fraud, deceit, official coverup and outright criminal endangerment of the broad population by the current Swine Flu hysteria is seemingly without precedent.
The Council of Europe member states will launch an inquiry in January 2010 on the influence of the pharmaceutical companies on the global swine flu campaign, focusing especially on extent of the pharma industry's influence on WHO. ... The step is a long-overdue move to public transparency of a "Golden Triangle" of drug corruption between WHO, the pharma industry and academic scientists that has permanently damaged the lives of millions and even caused death.
The Washington Post's Rob Stein writes Friday [2010-06-04] that two different reports in Europe have now "accused the [World Health Organization] of exaggerating the threat posed by the virus and failing to disclose possible influence by the pharmaceutical industry on its recommendations for how countries should respond." In plain English: the companies making the anti-flu drugs might have had a hand in fueling the public panic.
Fiona Godlee, the editor in chief of the peer-reviewed British Medical Journal (BMJ), which released one of the reports, lays out the concern. The public panic led governments to spend huge quantities of money to stockpile vaccines, while drug companies "banked vast profits — $7bn ... to $10bn from vaccines alone."
Why is this man smiling? Is it because, following the precedent of Donald Rumsfeld, he is expecting to become a multi-millionaire within a few years (if he is not one already)?
An article published December 20, 2011, in the UK Independent by Steve Connor and entitled Alarm as Dutch lab creates highly contagious killer flu informs us (emphasis added) that ...
For the first time the researchers have been able to mutate the H5N1 strain of avian influenza so that it can be transmitted easily through the air in coughs and sneezes. Until now, it was thought that H5N1 bird flu could only be transmitted between humans via very close physical contact.No doubt this is not news, but still very interesting, to the Swiss pharma giant Roche (which bought the marketing rights to Tamiflu from Gilead Sciences) and other big pharma companies. All that is needed to make another fortune is
Dutch scientists carried out the controversial research to discover how easy it was to genetically mutate H5N1 into a highly infectious "airborne" strain of human flu. They believe that the knowledge gained will be vital for the development of new vaccines and drugs.
But critics say the scientists have endangered the world by creating a highly dangerous form of flu which could escape from the laboratory — as well as opening a Pandora's box for fanatical terrorists wishing to make a bio-weapon.
The H5N1 strain of avian influenza has killed hundreds of millions of birds since it first appeared in 1996, but has so far infected only about 600 people who came into direct contact with infected poultry.
What makes H5N1 so dangerous, though, is that it has killed about 60 per cent of those it has infected, making it one of the most lethal known forms of influenza in modern history — a deadliness moderated only by its inability (so far) to spread easily through airborne water droplets.
Scientists are in little doubt that the newly created strain of H5N1 — resulting from just five mutations in two key genes — has the potential to cause a devastating human pandemic that could kill tens of millions of people. ...
The study was carried out by a Dutch team of scientists led by Ron Fouchier of the Erasmus Medical Centre in Rotterdam, where the mutated virus is stored under lock and key, but without armed guards, in a basement building.
Dr Fouchier ... [said] that it only took a small number of mutations to change the avian flu virus into a form that could spread more easily between humans.
"We have discovered that this is indeed possible, and more easily than previously thought. In the laboratory, it was possible to change H5N1 into an aerosol-transmissible virus that can easily be rapidly spread through the air," Dr Fouchier said. "This process could also take place in a natural setting. We know which mutation to watch for in the case of an outbreak and we can then stop the outbreak before it is too late. [Yeah, sure!] Furthermore, the finding will help in the timely development of vaccinations and medication."
It looks like the Tamiflu hoax all over again, but this time with a significantly lethal-to-humans virus which potentially will have the same effect (or worse) as that responsible for the 1918-20 influenza pandemic, which reportedly killed over 50 million people.
But don't expect a vaccine before 2013. Big pharma companies have already made their obscene fortunes, so presumably the aim of this exercise is not more profit for them but rather something more sinister: global population reduction. Before the vaccine goes to market the virus must first kill several billion people, so as to reduce the population of the Earth to a number acceptable to the controlling elite. If you're still alive after that then big pharma will graciously accept your money.
In the event that I am reincarnated, I would like to return as a deadly virus, in order to contribute something to solve overpopulation.
