“This is one time there is no conspiracy, listen to our government agencies, these guys are telling the truth. You know there is no conspiracy here folks. Get your damn vaccine.” — Dr. Nancy Snyderman, NBC’s Chief Medical Editor, August 2009
“Sky rocketing stock values of Novavax Inc., precipitated by dozens of flu deaths in Mexico, implicates a leading Anglo-American network of genetic engineers in a conspiracy to commit genocide.” — Dr. Leonard Horowitz, April 2009
Sept. 29, 2009: Canada’s Largest Province Distributing H1N1 Flu Propaganda Kits (‘Canada is furthering its flu hype agenda with the help of its largest populated province. Ontario’s 10,000 pharmacists are now distributing H1N1 propaganda kits which will help promote untested vaccines and dangerous antiviral drugs. The Ontario government has asked Ontario’s Community Pharmacies to act as a distribution point for public information on the H1N1 flu. “The initiative is clearly an attempt to sway and control public opinion on the controversies that surround the H1N1 flu, vaccine and antiviral drugs,” said public health specialist Marco Torres.’) And Sept. 23, 2009: Impending Mandatory Vaccinations Will Affect The Health, Jobs of Canadians (‘After recent reports that Canada’s public health officials are engaged in cover-up operations to conceal flu origin, there is now evidence and growing concerns and that all the warnings, dire predictions and preparations for the H1N1 swine flu are leading to mandatory vaccinations under the guise of “voluntary cooperation” initiatives from Canadian health agencies. The Canadian pandemic plan calls for the vaccination of the entire population over a period of two months. Vaccination campaigns are targeting the workplace, schools, recreational centres and even bars and nightclubs. Community mass vaccination clinics are scheduled to inoculate millions of people in every province in Canada. The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) state on their own website that International Health Regulations provide a legal framework under the World Health Organization (WHO) to protect against and control the international spread of disease such as a flu pandemic. They also state that they will establish a process that is to be followed by the WHO for determining and responding to a public health emergency of international concern. Under the WHO charter determined in 2005, it has the authority to dissolve Canada’s government policies on emergency planning, mandatory vaccinations and to take control should there be a “pandemic”. This applies to any country signed onto the WHO. From the WHO 2005 declaration: (excerpted) “Under special pandemic plans enacted around the world…, national governments are to be dissolved in the event of a pandemic emergency and replaced by special crisis committees, which take charge of the health and security infrastructure of a country, and which are answerable to the WHO and EU in Europe and to the WHO and UN in North America.” When it comes to the legal framework under the WHO, PHAC has absolutely no details or restrictions in terms of who will administer the inoculations and how. This means that once WHO pandemic policies are enacted, it could allow non-healthcare personnel, such as police and military to vaccinate people against their will to enforce mandatory vaccinations. These are obviously worse case scenarios, but the laws regarding pandemic preparedness and procedures are clear and these policies are not debatable once the government declares a nationwide emergency. Many countries are in the process of acquiring from Baxter, Novartis, GlaxoSmithKline and other pharmaceutical companies enough doses of vaccine to vaccinate their entire population twice. Many countries are remaining quiet about mandatory vaccination, simply saying they will make vaccination ‘available’ to all on a priority basis. But Greece and Switzerland have already announced that their programs will be mandatory and enforced by the military. There are unconfirmed reports that Norway and Israel have done the same. Confirmed reports of regional H1N1 pandemic planning documents from the UK indicate that local authorities intend to set up mass vaccination sites to be overseen by crowd control police. The United States is preparing for military ‘assisted’ mandatory vaccination but has not explicitly declared its intentions to the public. Individual Canadian provinces are supposedly given the authority to decide how to achieve the highest level of vaccination. The Canadian government claims this does not mean they will make it mandatory or use physical force. However, there are tactics in place, including heavy doses of propaganda, along with various forms of social and economic coercion which suggest otherwise. Just how it will all play out depends very much on the individual province, but reports from the public suggest that the current theme of intimidation is requiring many Canadian workers to demonstrate that they have received the flu vaccination to remain employed.‘) ( Zahir’s Last Update: These coercively compelling “voluntary” methods always portend a fait accompli on a very broad scale when existential choices have to be made by individuals. We are, after all, headed towards one-world government, and all will have to face the same choices, eventually. I am sorry to suggest that vaccination is a done deal under these circumstances. The only solution known to mankind to defeat such tyranny, is what was lamented by Etienne de La Boétie in great futility 500 years ago: “I should like merely to understand how it happens that so many men, so many villages, so many cities, so many nations, sometimes suffer under a single tyrant who has no other power than the power they give him; who is able to harm them only to the extent to which they have the willingness to bear with him; who could do them absolutely no injury unless they preferred to put up with him rather than contradict him. Surely a striking situation! Yet it is so common that one must grieve the more and wonder the less at the spectacle of a million men serving in wretchedness, their necks under the yoke, not constrained by a greater multitude than they…”. This is the last and final update to the swine flu report. Thank you for reading. )
September. 28, 2009 – the following headlines this morning are self-explanatory as the Mighty Wurlitzer gets into its full articulated stride: NYT Sept. 28, 2009: Don’t Blame Flu Shots for All Ills, Officials Say (“As soon as swine flu vaccinations start next month, some people getting them will drop dead of heart attacks or strokes, some children will have seizures and some pregnant women will miscarry. But those events will not necessarily have anything to do with the vaccine. That poses a public relations challenge for federal officials, who remember how sensational reports of deaths and illnesses derailed the large-scale flu vaccine drive of 1976.”) ; Boston Globe Sept. 28, 2009: Second wave of swine flu pandemic begins to hit US – Surge in cases closes schools, strains hospitals (“After months of warnings and frantic preparations, the second wave of the swine flu pandemic is starting to be felt around the country. Doctors, health clinics, hospitals, and schools are reporting rapidly increasing numbers of patients experiencing flu symptoms.”) ; AOL Money Sept. 28, 2009: Intense tracking for swine flu shot’s side effects (“More than 3,000 people a day have a heart attack. If you’re one of them the day after your swine flu shot, will you worry the vaccine was to blame and not the more likely culprit, all those burgers and fries?”); The Scientist, Sept. 23, 2009: Swine flu windfall (“Though a worrisome flu season is knocking at the Northern Hemisphere’s door, the five biopharmaceutical companies awarded massive contracts by the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for development and production of more than 195 million doses of swine flu vaccine can’t really complain.”) ( Zahir’s comment: As you peruse the above articles, you probably also ought to read this Note on the Mighty Wurlitzer and watch the first two parts of the BBC documentary on Edward Bernays, Century of Self, to catch a glimpse of what Public Relations really means. It is not a benign advertising/marketing gimmick that most people are led to believe. It is an insidious, and at times diabolical, attempt at mass behavior control by manipulatively tapping into man’s irrational self. It plays upon hidden and overt emotions, unstated fears, shameful desires, and ingrained and cultural myths to inculcate the necessary perceptions of interest, whether for selling a product, or for selling a political dogma. A new public myth is orchestrated in society – much like the “war on terror” mythology – based upon which a majority of the public reacts all too predictively to the continually fabricated Public Relations stimuli, or PSYOP. Overarchingly, this not only sets the stage for reinforcing the on-going current affairs narratives, but also creates the precedent for writing the preferred historical narrative. The ‘ubermensch’ political scientists and psychologists have figured out that on the whole, ‘Public Assumptions’ Shape Views of History: “Such presumptions are beliefs (1) thought to be true (although not necessarily known to be true with certainty), and (2) shared in common within the relevant political community. The sources for such presumptions are both personal (from direct experience) and vicarious (from books, movies, and myths).” That was stated in October 1998 at the conference on contemporary political history organized by the Miller Center of Public Affairs at the University of Virginia, by the future 9/11 Commission Executive Director Philip Zelikow who emphasized that the public understanding of history is shaped by what are sometimes referred to as “public myths.” Zelikow was a participant in the so called ‘Catastrophic Terrorism’ Study Group in 1997-98, and subsequently presided in the “Warren Commission” for his own study group’s predicted ‘Catastrophic Terrorism’, which just happened to be 911! This prediction-fulfillment cycle of political science is one of the most diabolical constructs of modernity, far outstripping Nostradamus in its accurate prescience for the near term, whereby, the failure to interdict the prediction is attributed to “chaos theory” of unavoidable happenstance, incompetence, and if all that stretches the incredulity of the public, to “blowback” of ill-conceived or greedy policies. When the unfortunate history of this Swine Flu Pandemic is similarly written, inter alia, the afore-cited headline news stories will help explain why so many people got exterminated from earth as an ‘act of god’, a lousy diet of “all those burgers and fries”, and in the developing nations due to “’complicating factors,’ such as malnutrition, poor housing or crowded conditions, [as] ‘flu was classically called a crowding disease in the 19th century.’” as per CNN April 28, 2009. According to the United States Air Force planning document “Alternate Futures for 2025: Security Planning to Avoid Surprise” dated April 1996, only 30 million people died in the pandemic of 2009! It noted in its chapter titled “Digital Cacophony” on page 54: “Technology could not solve some old problems, as in 2009, when an influenza pandemic struck in southern China, then rapidly spread worldwide. Three hundred-thirty million people were affected and over thirty million died. No one ever determined if the virus was a natural mutation or bioengineered. Many feared the latter.” That new prediction-fulfillment episode is now upon us even as I write this. Also note that amazing prescience re-surface in this 2006 IBM inter-departmental memo titled “Services & Global Procurement pan IOT Europe, Pandemic Plan Overview” whose very first bullet item stated: “There is a 100% chance that a Pandemic will occur within the next 5 years”. Thanks to whosoever leaked this revealing IBM memo – also cached here – which begs the obvious question how can a corporation which makes computers predict that a pig or another creature somewhere on the planet is going to acquire a pandemic inducing virus within the next 5 years with 100% certainty? And, have that event actually transpire right at the mid-point of the prediction? “Chaos theory” of course, the non-sequitur notwithstanding, explains all these predictions very well (sic)! And “simulations” of course (sic)! One only wishes that political science was merely science fiction to be enjoyed in large-canvas movies like the Star Wars “Revenge of the Sith” and the latest 2009 Star Trek which killed off billions of inhabitants of an entire planet. All this vicarious dulling of public sensibilities to massive deaths I wish was merely for the mass entertainment of a blood-thirsty people! )
Sept. 21, 2009 Reuters 3:21 pm EDT: VeriChip shares jump after H1N1 patent license win (cached here) (“Shares of VeriChip Corp tripled after the company said it had been granted an exclusive license to two patents, which will help it to develop implantable virus detection systems in humans. The patents, held by VeriChip partner Receptors LLC, relate to biosensors that can detect the H1N1 and other viruses, and biological threats such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, VeriChip said in a statement. The technology will combine with VeriChip’s implantable radio frequency identification devices to develop virus triage detection systems.”) (Zahir’s Comment: And there is the real smoking gun for all this forced vaccination hullaballoo and this pandemic – inter alia, the pretext for micro-chipping human populations with RFID implants! The survivors can’t get on a plane, train, or get money from the ATM account without it – very soon. )
( Zahir’s Comment-2, RFID, September 22, 2009: Also see article dated November 21, 2008, “Boston launches flu shot tracking – City to pinpoint areas of low rates of vaccination”. More relevant details are here and here. Rational people might do well to ask themselves that if the H1N1 virus is (or may be) mutating rapidly into a vaccine resistant strain, then what’s the purpose of a) the vaccine, b) vaccination tracking? Once one has acquired some reasoned perspective on that, one might further reflect that if the UN agencies are repeatedly stating that millions could die without vaccination scaring many a have-not into demanding it – beg, borrow or steal, the sheep pleads for its own sharpened knife from the butcher – and the vaccine is ineffective against a mutating vaccine-resistant viral strain, then what’s the point of vaccination? Why is the WHO pitching vaccination so much, apart from Big-Pharma making mega-bucks that is? People will die anyway from the virus with or without vaccination! So it would appear to a sensible logician to further ask that 1) if the virus is designed to eventually kill with or without the help of vaccines, and 2) if behind the boogieman of the pandemic the real agenda is to implant RFID tracking devices into world’s populations, then how will the elites and the hectoring hegemons protect their ownselves and their serfs in this pandemic? How exactly will selective culling be done for the “right” races, ethnic and socio-economic groups, important personal like doctors, privileged military, production and industrial slaves, et. al., slated for survival? This is why I have felt from day-one of this pandemic, that if its direct kill-scope is intended to be vast as opposed to merely being a trigger for something else, then there might actually be two “qualities” of vaccines, one harmful in some convolutedly complex way under presumption of mala fide intent, and one life-saving under the Hippocratic oath. And if people can’t get the vaccine from the batch to be taken by the Rockefellers and Henry Kissinger [sic!], then to avoid it altogether. It’s best to take one’s chances by enabling one’s own immune system to fight it – see note on vaccination. Man is a resilient being – not so easy to wipe us out! Look at the indomitable Palestinians. Against all odds, against the mightiest superpower on earth, against all the wealth owners of the world, and with the rest of mankind silently spectating, they are still hanging on tenaciously to what’s precious to them! But it does require a conscious act of individual (and collective) resistance. Can RFID itself be ultimately avoided, irrespective of the question of this pandemic? Not if one is unwilling to live in the netherworld. Even if world-government in its final form is delayed indefinitely – there is surely many a slip between the cup and lip – the world systems are already in place in most developed nations which would make the normal daily routine of modern living almost impossible without it. Travel is already becoming its biggest sentinel. Even though many nations are grandfathering their existing passports, new passport issues are invariably micro-chipped worldwide by necessity of visa requirements! Many credit cards are already micro-chipped. While the present micro-chipping is primarily of the instruments of life and living, implanting them into human beings directly – by pretext, by necessity, or by force of law such as at birth much like birth-registering – points to the ultimate revolution. Seems to me that only the kinds of draconian policing systems made possible with this level of control would make world-government sustainable – for generations – barring a global catastrophe that would make it infeasible to control very human being. I have never understood the fascination of some with hegemony, but since it is a vestigial “as old as mankind”, its ultimate target must also be all mankind. The logic of it is inescapable. Thus, unless that cancerous vestigial is itself altered, cut-out and discarded somehow, or minimally, prevented from growing unfettered through a real non-fictitious balance of power perpetually holding it in check, its natural zenith is in the full spectrum dominance of mankind.)

Aug. 2, 2009: Novartis Patent Application in Nov 2005 Evidence That The ‘Swine Flu’ Pandemic Is Man-Made ( Read patent Application at USPTO dated Nov 4, 2005 Here ) ( Alt Read at patentstorm ) ( JPG Here ) (Zahir’s Comment: Only when Novartis files for patent protection on their Swine Flu vaccines citing this patent, will one really know if this patent application filed years before the pandemic is even applicable to the present strain of H1N1. This patent is generic, applicable to producing antidotes to many family of viruses, including perhaps this current strand of H1N1. Even if Novartis’ antiviral vaccine employs this patent, I am not sure how that fact alone will prove that Novartis had early access to the specific H1N1 strain fueling this pandemic. To know that conclusively requires additional facts not visible in the above patent application, in my view. Furthermore, there is a fast-track antiviral vaccine development, testing, and approval process based on a manufacturer’s prior experience with vaccines! Given that official institutional umbrella for fast deployment of vaccines, a vaccine manufacturer has no need to publicly disclose that it had access to a deadly mutable pathogen in order to make its antidote before that pathogen existed in a break-out epidemic. Some surely do have access to the highly secretive stock of the most deadly pathogens from the many biowarfare research labs around the world. The patent protection for antiviral vaccines however appears to be rather circuitous and generic as this patent application is. They are protecting the various methods and techniques by which they synthesize a vaccine for many viruses, the intimate science of which is of course understandable only to the practitioners in that field. A mention of “H1N1” in a patent application by itself is not a smoking gun! But I am not a practitioner in that field to claim that I understand this interesting patent.)

I don’t believe this is a smoking gun either.)
Richard N. Gardner of the Council on Foreign Relations outlined the subversion processes for ending national sovereignty in CFR’s Foreign Affairs in April 1974 in his article “The Hard Road To World Order” thusly:
“In short, the ‘house of world order’ will have to be built from the bottom up, rather than from the top down. It will look like a great ‘booming, buzzing confusion’ to use William James’ famous description of reality, but an end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece will accomplish much more than the old-fashioned frontal assault.
Of course, for political as well as administrative reasons, some of these specialized arrangements should be brought into an appropriate relationship with the central institutions of the U.N. system, but the main thing is that the essential functions be performed.
The question is whether this more modest approach can do the job. Can it really bring mankind into the twenty-first century with reasonable prospects for peace, welfare and human dignity? The argument thus far suggests it better had, for there seems to be no alternative. But the evidence also suggests some grounds for cautious optimism.” (pages 558-559)
And we observe today that a very real “booming buzzing confusion” uncannily abounds, usually coordinated by the “central institutions of the U.N. system”, amidst the usual platitudes of “prospects for peace, welfare and human dignity”.
Who can make any rational sense of all these global events in real time, and all compressed in a short decade initiated by the crisis of 911 – from global war on terror, to global financial collapse, to global warming and global ‘carbon credits’, to now global pandemic? Does it require a brilliant man or woman to do so? An Einstein? A Rosalind Franklin? I have reached the conclusion as an ordinary human being of no particular notable brilliance, that it perhaps does only take an un co-opted plebeian to do so. Below is my analysis of the global pandemic now intruding in our lives just like the ‘war on terror’. An alert just came home from my kid’s school outlining the procedures they will follow in case the school has to shut down. Several schools in the vicinity have already shut down. So what is it all about? If you go to the ‘experts’, you will surely learn it.
Therefore, while I am not a biologist, in the past few days, I have had to become one by necessity of being a parent, to protect my family; so I know only as much as the title prominently displayed on my forehead, which spells ‘expert’. Watch out for us ‘experts’ – we can suspend the laws of physics just because we say so. Our degrees, Nobel prizes, and elitists’ applause are our credentials! So when an ‘expert’ from our learned ranks, one with known agendas written in our own hand writings but in other peoples’ blood, brings you the news, look into it with great care and due diligence – lest you shortly regret having taken actions (or inactions) based upon it.
I find the afore-paraphrase of verse 49:6 from the Qur’an (the holy bible of the priests of ‘Islamism’, but for most Muslims to be left on the highest bookshelf for occasional dusting and annual pious rehearsing on death anniversaries and fasting) phenomenally insightful in unraveling current affairs (“O ye who believe! if a wicked person comes to you with any news, ascertain the truth, lest ye harm people unwittingly, and afterwards become full of repentance for what ye have done.”).
However, since I don’t know in general, who is wicked and who isn’t, as wickedness today comes wrapped in holy white, science, experts, presidents, shills, and “errand boys”, and since our times have shown that it is almost trivial to make patsies of even the most sincere peoples to serve the devil’s agenda, I apply this wisdom to all news and all bearers of news, all science and all bearers of science, and I don’t much care for what’s stamped on their lauded forehead.
Atheists and Agnostics of course may prefer to rely on Bertrand Russell’s discourse on commonsense to adjudicate wisely.
If only we, the ‘untermenschen’ of humanity, the ‘cattle’ being led to the slaughterhouse, had collectively substituted some iota of commonsense from the very day of 911 for all the mantras by experts who shilled and continue to shill, who killed and continue to kill, for empire, we surely wouldn’t be here today, “… on the verge of a global transformation [awaiting] the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order.” Please read on to understand how the multitude of crises perch humanity on that very cusp of global transformation with its oft-stated agenda for population reduction (also see analysis of NSSM 200). The latter is evidentially accomplishable as germ-warfare not only on ‘target ethnic groups’, but also on global crop, and thus global food production. And all attributed to natural causes, happenstance, incompetence, or unforeseeable blunder.
In this pandemic which is so deliberately being allowed to spread to other regions of the world, we might well be looking at the formation of a pretext for a new global central authority to supersede the largely advisory WHO, as direct global controllers of global public health, just as is now proposed for global central-banking to control global economics, global carbon credits to control global production (emissions), and the global war on terror which has already become the global truth du jour to control and deny essential liberties, all together constituting a global police state. ‘One-world’ government if you will (see Gideon Rachman’s Financial Times Oped And now for a world government, December 08, 2008). In another 100 years, perhaps only 20, even to fart would require some ‘fart-credit’ from a global authority as it monitors the affluent on its ubiquitous sensors triggered off RFID implants in all that is living, and all which is commodified!
Some of our generation, caught Between the Two Ages (see Zbigniew Brzezinski’s Between Two Ages, 1970), experience that angst in anticipation of global servitude to the Pharoahnic oligarchs. But our grandchildren will be taking it as their normal way of life without a second thought, despite their yoke of chains from uterus to grave. And ‘that’s just the way it is’ being planned.
To derail it today, as well-nigh a fait accompli as it appears, is still far easier than it will ever be in the future – until such time when another Age will finally beckon. When, once again, “two cultures and religions [will] overlap … when a whole generation [will be] caught in this way between two ages, two modes of life,” to resist change, but the new will finally overthrow the old at great human cost and bloodshed. No empire lasts forever.
Note on abetting the Pandemic: The American Heritage Dictionary defines Pandemic as: ‘Medicine: Epidemic over a wide geographic area and affecting a large proportion of the population: pandemic influenza.’ The rapid spread of the swine flu ‘H1N1′ epidemic to other parts of the world is largely through Air Travel. With all the Homeland Security Apparatus so ubiquitously deployed at all the International Airports of the world to fight the global ‘war on terror’ against the ‘Islamists’, it ought to be rather trivial during check-in at departure points at all the international airports in the world to ascertain if a traveler has been to Mexico and deny boarding (for the immediate near term). The same type of form that is used during entry into the United States, and into most other countries, which asks the traveler questions on their whereabouts can be used at departure points, augmented by the same type of questions that are asked to fight the ‘war on terror’: did you pack your own bags, do you know anyone who has been to Mexico recently? And repeated a few times through the many steps of screening where they force you to take off your shoes, blow air up your skirt, and get their jollies looking at your imperfections through body imaging to identify ’suspicious’ peoples who need to be interviewed further, before being let on board.
They do this routinely – I am subjected to it frequently whenever I travel – why not here? They can trivially shutdown schools as preventive measure and inconvenience thousands of students domestically, as noted in this AP report of May 02, 2009 (cached here): “The Education Department said that more than 430 schools had closed affecting about 245,000 children in 18 states. … The government issued new guidance for schools with confirmed cases, saying they should close for at least 14 days because children can be contagious for seven to 10 days from when they get sick.” But they cannot detect and prevent a handful of travelers from getting on the plane through judicious assessment? Given the seriousness of the matter by their own admission: “It’s a virus that we’ve never seen before. There’s no background immunity in the population and it is spreading from human to human, all of which has the potential for a pandemic.” If the authorities were really concerned about the pandemic, a sensible human being among them would surely have reflected that some obvious policing and restrictions at points of embarkment would detect most of the obvious first order virus-carriers who are now reported, after the fact, to have been to Mexico. This is the low-hanging fruits of the tree which are not being plucked! It is interesting that almost all confirmed cases occurring in other countries of the world outside of Mexico and the United States, are directly traceable to visitors who have been to Mexico, or came in contact with someone who arrived from Mexico (see FluTracker and click on the balloons).
It does not take a rocket scientist to figure out that the pandemic can be immediately mitigated by deploying a rational commonsensical first-order check on Departure Airports where the infrastructure to do so is already in place! This is the same sort of commonsense that is seen missing in all the crises since 911 which are subsequently blamed on incompetence, happenstance, blowback, complexity, unforeseeability, etc., and for which some global solution is hurriedly proposed. In fact, its immediate analogy is to both 911 and the financial crisis: the many deliberate stages (see Monetary Reform Bibliography) which were setup to calculatingly lead to the banking collapse, the solution to which, now the same financial ruling elites claim is a global monetary system in the hands of the same banksters. Similarly, according to the ‘official dissent’ to the official story of planes highjacking, the authorities deliberately monitored the highjackers for months rather than interdict them before 911 for various justifications. Their not heeding many a warning coming from intelligence sources is deemed “incompetence”, and the rationale for the attacks, “blowback”. The one common sacred-cow axiom among all these manufactured explanations: 911 was an invasion from abroad, the work of ‘Islamist terrorists’, rather than an inside job for “imperial mobilization”. The same thing is happening here: Pigs are being blamed as the first-cause prime-movers of this epidemic, and various justifications employed to monitor its spread, rather than interdict its carriers to prevent it from becoming a pandemic.
Whether it is the pigs in the pen or in the lab who unleashed it, the first-cause of swine flu in becoming a pandemic is evidentially the traveling-humans (not pigs, unlike the case of bird flu where birds are the prime cause of its spread), flying their payload from country to country in airplanes after passing through international airports which are controlled tighter than Fort Knox.
Therefore, the following advisory by WHO on “No rationale for travel restrictions” (below) is not only irrational, and their justification specious, but outright criminal, for it is directly abetting in the spread of the pandemic in the name of science and mathematics. The same sort of “Scientific research based on mathematical modelling” gibberish was used to sell mega-loans to the poor developing nations to put them under massive debt to the World Bank, and then let the IMF let loose upon them to plunder at will (also see John Perkins’ EHM, page 101, 2004). The same sort of “Scientific research based on mathematical modelling” gibberish that is used to teach modern economics to generations of IVY and LSE students to justify making the gluttonous banksters richer and richer through their calculatingly induced credit-expansion-contraction-cycles (just as famously predicted by Thomas Jefferson) under their direct monopolistic control of the global central banking syndicate. And the same sort of “Scientific research based on mathematical modelling” gibberish that was employed by NIST and Popular Mechanics which ‘proved’ the absurd ‘pancake collapse’ of the WTC towers (see latest reality-check here). All the murderous pretexts are compressed in one short decade. What’s the rush? Isn’t the new ‘one-world’ empire supposed to last a thousand years?
Today, as yesterday, one can find legions of scholars, scientists, Nobel Laureates, and many an erudite “errand boy” swearing by these “Scientific research based on mathematical modelling”, while humanity is starved, robbed, decimated, victimized, and now gratuitously subjected to pandemics that are manufactured in Western laboratories for the oligarchs’ global population reduction agenda.
A mathematics that is deployed in social sciences and which fails the test of commonsense, is a knife calculatingly constructed and sharpened to slaughter the sheep, not to pair fruit.
I respectfully challenge WHO to rise to the occasion despite being an agency of the United Nations, constructed by the financial oligarchs, to calculatingly orchestrate world governing bodies and global structures. I ask its respected Director General, Dr. Margaret Chan, who is entirely and monopolistically determining global policies which affect all nations – her ‘advisory’ is gospel for almost every country – to give humanity some respite, for she may not be aware of the overarching agendas any more than any other highly compartmentalized black-ops’ unwitting executioners.
WHO: No rationale for travel restrictions
‘1 May 2009 — WHO is not recommending travel restrictions related to the outbreak of the influenza A(H1N1) virus. Today, international travel moves rapidly, with large numbers of individuals visiting various parts of the world. Limiting travel and imposing travel restrictions would have very little effect on stopping the virus from spreading, but would be highly disruptive to the global community.
Influenza A(H1N1) has already been confirmed in many parts of the world. The focus now is on minimizing the impact of the virus through the rapid identification of cases and providing patients with appropriate medical care, rather than on stopping its spread internationally. Furthermore, although identifying the signs and symptoms of influenza in travellers can be an effective monitoring technique, it is not effective in reducing the spread of influenza as the virus can be transmitted from person to person before the onset of symptoms. Scientific research based on mathematical modelling indicates that restricting travel will be of limited or no benefit in stopping the spread of disease. Historical records of previous influenza pandemics, as well as experience with SARS, have validated this point.’

Note on CDC Numbers: There is much discrepancy in reportage. The FluTracker using its own heuristics shows the spread of disease faster than officially reported. This report (cached here) by Reuters noted “176 deaths” in Mexico on April 30, 2009, whereas the officially reported “laboratory confirmed” deaths in Mexico as of May 05, 2009, according to WHO Advisory Update 16, is still only 29. The FluTracker shows “fatal cases” in Mexico to be 105 on the same date (20:41 EDT). Why this count anomaly?
See this report dated April 30, 2009, to understand one possible reason for the discrepancy in number of reported deaths, and this remarkable disclosure dated May 01, 2009, for why not to put too much faith in such ‘official’ reportage, as ‘“The specimens are coming in faster than they can possibly be tested,” … CDC lab can only test about 100 samples a day.’ The latter report sums it up: ‘Why does any of this matter? Because people are under the great misimpression that H1N1 has killed “only” 7 people (or 10 as of today, as the CDC has added 3 deaths to its “confirmed” list). Therefore, people say, it’s no big deal.’
This reporter’s experience in New York City suggests the same: “I called New York City authorities, who told me they don’t need to test everyone with the A/H1N1 virus and can’t. They said they test only to identify and contain areas of outbreak.” The reporter, JOE LAURIA, Wall Street Journal’s United Nations correspondent, who apparently caught the flu himself and spent 4 days in isolation in a New York hospital, describing his travails in “Reporter Tries to Get Tested for Swine Flu”, dated May 04, 2009, quotes Don Weiss, director of surveillance in New York City’s bureau of communicable disease: “There are probably 10,000 people with the flu in New York, [w]e just don’t have the capacity to test that. People with the flu should stay home and call their doctor.” Lauria further paraphrased Weiss: ‘The only place in the world where testing is being done is at the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, where a test had to be designed and produced for the new flu strain.’
The following is illustrative. The FluTracker map shows “1069 confirmed cases” in the United States as of May 6, 2009 08:08 EDT. The WHO advisory update 17 of May 06, 2009 reported “403 laboratory confirmed human cases” by the CDC in the United States. According to the FluTracker website: “The map was compiled using data from official sources, news reports and user-contributions.” Zooming into the map shows individual case stories. For instance, Missouri shows “2 confirmed cases”, both in its Howard County as of May 2, 2009. The link provided to the news report states: “The two cases were found during testing of specimens sent to the State Public Health Laboratory by doctors whose patients reported flu-like symptoms. Tests showed that the flu virus afflicting the two patients is a previously unseen type. Specimens from each patient will be sent to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for confirmation that it is the swine flu that has now spread to at least 20 states, including Missouri.”
Therefore, when the FluTracker map annotated Missouri with “2 confirmed cases”, it actually meant two “patients reported flu-like symptoms” which was confirmed by “State Public Health Laboratory” to be of “previously unseen type” virus. But the viral type has not yet been positively identified as ‘H1N1′ which only CDC is capable of doing (as per “Reporter Tries to Get Tested for Swine Flu” and this), and the specimens will be sent off to CDC for confirmation. As one can easily see, this kind of information can be quite useful provided one is able to discern hearsay from facts, as was possible to do in this instance. Thanks to Dr. Henry Niman for voluntarily compiling this data in the FluTracker.
Note on vaccination: In general, vaccination, when the intent of the health authorities is to preserve and protect, rather than to infertilate and eliminate, is only dangerous with respect to its side-effects. That is a matter of normal practice of modern medicine and pharmacology (the study of how drugs act on biological systems) – the intent being rooted in the ‘Hippocratic Oath’ to genuinely help people live longer and disease-free lives, and to minimally do ‘No Harm’ through medical intervention. Many a routine childhood vaccine (used to) come under this category. The evidence of the efficacy of vaccination is empirical – longer lifespans, elimination of many childhood diseases. 
However, when the health authorities are themselves beholden to powers from above, and their intent is suspect under certain circumstances, such as the case of the long standing United Nation’s agenda for population control, fertility control, and ultimately, population reduction (as for instance outlined by Henry Kissinger in the now declassified National Security Study Memorandum NSSM-200 of April 24, 1974), the advice of the health authorities may not be trusted, especially when it is international. Even if, such advice is given with the best of intention by the peons (Doctors) working in those institutions. These specialists are merely the ‘errand boys’ doing their compartmentalized jobs for which they have trained as narrow experts. They are part of the establishment, and their rewards and careers are rooted in unquestioningly following the mainstream practice of medicine which is entirely run under the aegis of central organizations like the FDA and the AMA. So who can one go to for advice to ask what actual chemical cocktail is in a vaccine?
I tried that for the Hepatitis B vaccine which was needed for my kid in order to volunteer at a local hospital. I consulted all who were in reach of my phone, and I am rather well connected by plebeian standards. All I was informed was what they were themselves told by the FDA, or had read in the brochures that were dropped off at the doctors’ front office by the pharma-reps.
So what’s wrong with FDA (and pharmaceuticals) running the show? Well, they are beholden to many a corporate interest, atop of which, sit the Rockefeller interests which control much of the global pharmaceutical industry (see Eustace Mullins, Ibid.) and their research in drugs and in patenting life, which in turn plugs in seamlessly with the bioweapons research interests and primacy agenda of the national security state.  The interlocking is so complete among the various participants, from academia to industry to weapons labs, and also so opaque, that vaccines are like a cookie. One just can’t know what’s in them, or why different chemical/molecular formulations exist in a particular vaccine, or their long term impact, even if one is a well-intentioned scientist in a relevant discipline. Probably the only ones to really know are the those who perfected them in the research labs and they aren’t gonna tell you – patents of course, but more pertinently, classified information. Even giving samples of bird flu vaccines to other nations deemed hostile to the United States and Western interests, is considered a threat to its national security! So vaccines can evidently be agents for both short and long term biowarfare as much as they can be antidotes for diseases. Under the best of circumstances, under non-mala fide intent as stated earlier, only its harmful side-effects and efficacy are rational determinants in the decision making of whether to take it or not. Religious beliefs are beyond the realm of this analysis.
Therefore, most people base their decision on trust in these governing bodies – that they would not deliberately harm them (inadvertently perhaps, for profit motive surely, but not calculatingly to implant an RFID chip inside them on contrived pretexts, or reduce the fertility rate among an ethnic group or entire population). This trust occurs for the same reason as the Americans’ “United We Stand”.
Under such dubious circumstances, avoiding vaccination, especially of potentially biowarfare related pathogens, is minimally a double edged sword. Since one is not privy to what’s in the vaccine, therefore, unless one can get it from the same batch as taken by the Rockefellers, the Rothschilds, and Henry Kissinger, taking one’s chances with the statistical odds becomes a commonsensical prudence for those not in that club.
Also see Zahir’s comments below under Rich Nations Could Claim Most of Swine Flu Vaccine.
: Eustace Mullins offers a rational counterpoint to this position in his carefully researched book “MURDER BY INJECTION The Story of the Medical Conspiracy Against America”, 1988, wherein he argues that vaccination (immunization) is outright responsible for many of modern systemic diseases, and that it was the Rockefeller interests who pushed it upon America (and through their control of the UN upon the rest of the world). That blanket position on vaccination being a poor medical practice ab initio, a quackery, stands on its own and is not considered nor challenged here. The point of focus in this note is decision-making under possible mala fide intent (not quackery) when people do follow and accept the conventional practice of vaccination – as I do. Perhaps a rethinking is required there too, but I haven’t researched quackery as yet! This video documentary by Dr. Leonard G. Horowitz about medical madness, cloaked in bioterrorism preparedness, certainly leads in that direction. So does this video documentary Vaccination – The Hidden Truth made by the Vaccination Information Service. It is not clear to me if these opinions are confusing due process of medical science which does entail a complex cost-benefit-risk statistical analysis for public-health that is surely plagued by failings in commonsense and excessive greed when led by large pharma, with the political abuse of medical science in general to alias hidden war agendas on unsuspecting populations. My immediate concern is the latter which includes an entire gamut of political abuse, from eugenics to GMO foods to epidemics – which harvests justifications and techniques from science and technology – all for population culling and elimination. It’s akin to abusing Islam to create the fabled enemy of ‘Islamism’ for a war-making agenda – whether or not there is some inherent deficiency in the religion is irrelevant and orthogonal to its political abuse for “imperial mobilization”.
 For the relationship between state sponsored terrorism and its instrument of biowarfare as silent-wars inflicted upon civilian populations, see Francis Boyle’s Faculty Lecture on Bio/Warfare/Terrorism/Weapons, April 18, 2002, and his book Biowarfare and Terrorism, 2005; also see Stephen Lendman’s excellent bird’s-eye view in The Bush Administration’s Secret Biowarfare Agenda, July 28, 2008. The fact that the “WHO is sending 2.4m courses of antiviral treatment to 72 nations around the world, Dr Ryan said, among them many developing countries” (BBC News, May 02, 2009), is cause for serious alarm given the primacy objectives of the national security directives of the United States Government coupled with its long standing agenda of population reduction in developing nations. The document NSSM 200 provides only a peak into the primacy thinking of hectoring hegemons, and while that has been declassified, what remains classified is hinted at by the impetus for full spectrum hegemony outlined in PNAC and evidenced in all the wars and global crises since 911. All leading to a New World Order of the globalists in which their nihilistic social Darwinianism will dictate both their universal morality to be enforced, and the universal imperatives by which to do so. Those very imperatives are being implemented unchallenged as I write this. This is the most bizarre aspect of this grotesque modernity – victim nations and populations willingly being led to the slaughter! Also see “Population control, US bio-weapons research, McNamara, Rockefeller, and AIDS”, especially Addendum3 where the following observation is noted:
“… there are many many instances where the World Health Organization – which is again largely funded by the Rockefeller Foundation, Ford Foundation, and the Rothschild group in London – to absolutely control populations for specific political purposes worldwide, … [fabricate] specific programs designed to kill large amounts of people, and it does this, in every single case, by means of vaccination introduction. We can see a pattern, a modus operandi, in this: Introduce a vaccine to unsuspecting population centers, cause massive sickness, massive death, massive panic, massive chaos, and then they step in and have the agenda completed. It’s the same old problem-reaction scenario: They create the problem, they dictate the response, and then they have the prescribed action already made.”

‘Although no final decision has been made to produce a vaccine against the new strain of swine flu, officials at the World Health Organization say they are aware of “pre-production contracts” by wealthy countries that may lay claim to substantial quantities of any that is made.
The worldwide capacity for making a pandemic vaccine is 2 billion doses at the most and possibly as little as 1 billion doses, depending on the uncertainties involving production and dosage. Of that total, the United States has pre-existing contracts that would allow it to buy at least 600 million doses.’
Zahir’s Comment May 07, 2009: While monopoly at legal-gun-point of patents-regime by rich nations on the basic seeds and germs of life is a legal travesty, and in my view a monumental global crime against humanity (watch Monsanto Sues, 1300 Indian farmer suicide, and read about Vandana Shiva’s odyssey), in this instance, the matters have an additional dimension. One of calculatingly getting the unsuspecting ‘untermensch’ people to use inimical vaccination under pretext of pandemics to wreck a greater havoc. See note on vaccination.
Therefore, this news bulletin appears to me to be of the pure psy-ops genre for demand creation. Attempt is being made to scare the developing nations – un-surprisingly also on the target list of NSSM-200 for population reduction – into panicking and frantically demanding their share of the vaccines from the rich nations. Victims willingly demanding and paying for the poison – almost like J.P. Morgan deliberately cultivating a run on the banks to seed the First Great Depression.
Here, it is the work of the ‘Mighty Wurlitzer’ to seed the Great Population Reduction. There are many incremental stages to reach that ultimate culmination before these seeds of destruction might be fully harvested, just like there have been many incremental buildup-and-teardown-cycles to making America bankrupt by stages. It was seeded in the 1913 Federal Reserve Act by one generation of international banksters, before it could be harvested by another generation of international banksters, their own familial grandchildren, in the Great Bailouts of 2008-2009. And that too is only the prelude to the international banksters cementing their complete anaconda debt-grip upon the world which will culminate in their cherished dream of ‘one-world’ government, and a world population cut in half or less.
The only rational way out of this impasse is for self-respecting nations, ones run by ruling-elite who do care about their peoples, their culture, their heritage, their traditions, who represent the hopes and aspirations of the masses for a better future rather than a non-existential one, to urgently break out of this false-paradigm of destructive globalism legally forced upon them.
Boldly abrogate the patent-regime of profit-strangulation-destruction by exercising legal fiat domestically in every developing nation. Make your own vaccines, develop your own seeds, and trade and partner among your own nations of the Global South to create a massive trading bloc. Use that Global-South Alliance (GSA) to negotiate more equitable, and fair terms of trade with the rich nations of the Global North who now hold all the power and thus dictate all the terms. Protect that decision with your militaries if necessary – in a Full Spectrum Alliance – for, modern warfare runs silent runs deep, just as it runs loud leaving deep craters in the tabula rasa of the ‘lesser’ humanity!
There is an interesting lesson in the Qur’an, inter alia, verses 13:11 and 52:14, once again drawing upon a spiritual wisdom to unravel modernity and to guide oneself into a commonsensical rational thinking mode that is being systematically killed off among the victims regardless of their religion and spiritual base. Rely on one’s own forces (“Verily never will Allah change the condition of a people until they change it themselves.”). Since the enemy’s modus operandi principally is ‘divide et impera’, so unite against that common enemy just as they unite amongst themselves behind institutions, foundations, and fortified treaties to divide and fight you, waging silent and loud wars by way of deception (“They will not fight you (even) together, except in fortified townships, or from behind walls. Strong is their fighting (spirit) amongst themselves: thou wouldst think they were united, but their hearts are divided: that is because they are a people devoid of wisdom.”).
Every civilization, including the Western peoples, will find much common ground in these timeless commonsensical general principles of the art of war and self-defense which recognize realpolitik of any generation, to orchestrate both their foreign and domestic policies. For indeed, every heritage is surely replete with such pragmatic wisdom, as much as they are replete with lofty platitudes which have shown to have little effective power in the real-world run by devils’ vicegerents who call themselves the ‘Hectoring Hegemons’, and who, by way of empiricism, can only be checked effectively with counterpower. Here is Patrick Henry’s:
“–we must fight! I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of hosts is all that is left us! They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength but irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot? Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. … It is in vain, sir, to extentuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace–but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! … Why stand we here idle? … Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”
Mexico swine flu death toll jumps to 19
Sat May 02, 2009, 08:20 PM (Pacific Time)
‘MEXICO CITY – Mexico reported three new deaths from the swine flu epidemic Saturday and urged citizens not to let their guard down against a virus that has killed 19 in people in Mexico and is spreading across Asia and Europe. Health Secretary Jose Angel Cordova said Mexico’s confirmed swine flu cases jumped to 473, including the 19 deaths. The previous death toll in Mexico was 16. A Mexican toddler also died in Texas days ago, for a worldwide total of 20. Mexico’s last confirmed swine flu death occurred Wednesday, Cordova said. However, he said there were 11 cases of people suspected to have died from the virus in the last 24 hours. The alarming news came after the epidemic’s toll in Mexico appeared to be leveling off.’
More schools shut as swine flu spreads in US
Sat May 2, 8:29 am ET
The Education Department said that more than 430 schools had closed [of the almost 100,000 schools in the country] affecting about 245,000 children in 18 states. … The government issued new guidance for schools with confirmed cases, saying they should close for at least 14 days because children can be contagious for seven to 10 days from when they get sick. … The U.S. death toll remained at one — the Mexican toddler who visited Texas with his family and died there. … CDC also said the new swine flu virus lacks genes that made the 1918 pandemic strain so deadly. … Though most U.S. cases have been relatively mild and have not required a doctor’s visit, U.S. precautions include shipping millions of doses of anti-flu drugs to states in case they’re needed, replenishing the U.S. strategic stockpile with millions more treatment courses, and shipping 400,000 treatment courses to Mexico.

‘MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – Mexico’s president ordered a partial economic shutdown to slow the spread of the swine flu virus as officials urged increased precautions against an imminent pandemic. One day after the World Health Organization warned that the world was on the brink of a global outbreak of the new flu strain H1N1, an International Monetary Fund economist warned that some countries could see drastic consequences from the illness. New cases of swine flu infections were reported in the United States, Latin America and in Europe. U.S. officials said new infections were occurring, although only a handful of people outside Mexico have required hospital treatment. In Mexico, the worst hit country with 176 deaths, President Felipe Calderon told government offices and private businesses not crucial to the economy to stop work beginning on Friday to avoid further spreading a virus that is striking across age and class lines.’
Zahir’s Comment: (Note on virus genetically targeting). A “virus that is striking across age and class lines”, but kills mainly young adults in Mexico with varying accuracy of reporting (the report quoted above says “with 176 deaths”, while the Reuters’ report below says “8 have died”, see note on CDC Numbers) , and Mexico’s President “told government offices and private businesses not crucial to the economy to stop work beginning on Friday to avoid further spreading”, is suggestive, as usual, of something far deeper than the mainstream media’s eye on current affairs. CNN in its earlier report of April 28, 2009, titled: “Among the swine flu mysteries: Why only deaths in Mexico?”, narrated a very curious point, item 4 below:
# Mexico has confirmed 7 swine flu deaths; in the U.S., 64 confirmed cases, no deaths
# Experts suspect disease has been in Mexico longer, infecting more people
# Factors like malnutrition, poor housing may have made Mexican victims vulnerable
# Experts concerned that victims are young adults who should have peak resistance
Item 4 all but suggests of a deliberately targeted infectious pathogen at play. It also rationally contradicts the idiotic speculations of item 3 and item 2 which appear to be thrown in as red herrings. If malnutrition was the cause, it would have affected people in the more vulnerable age groups, not the strongest (assuming the young adults are not more malnourished than any other age group in Mexico, and anyone who has encountered Mexican migrant workers in the United States will observe that despite their poverty-stricken indigent lives, the young adults are strong, hearty, and more hard working than any other ethnic group at menial labor). Item 2 has no evidence to back it up either.
Today, the mechanics of germ-warfare are apparently perfected. Even in 1999, the UK Independent reported the following:
Germ warfare `could target ethnic groups’
Friday, 22 January 1999, By Charles Arthur
‘GENETICALLY engineered biological weapons capable of targeting particular ethnic groups could become reality within 10 years, an expert panel warned yesterday. Viruses and other micro- organisms tailored to detect the differences in the DNA of races could offer warmakers and terrorists of the future a new means to carry out “ethnic cleansing”, said the panel convened by the British Medical Association (BMA).
The idea of “genetic weapons”, which the panel said are at present just a theoretical possibility, added urgency to the need to add verification procedures to the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention. Though first signed in 1972 by the UK, US and Russia, and now having 140 signatory nations, the BWC differs from other weapons conventions in having no mechanisms for oversight, to ensure that signatories obey its rules.’
An outbreak of a pathogen which in its initial stages appears to be more deadly towards a specific peoples (DNA) than others, reeks empirically of biowarfare test-case applied to a civilian population (just as the recent Monsanto’s GMO crop failure in South Africa is evidence of the same).
As the good doctor, WHO Director-General, Dr. Margaret Chan, candidly noted in her official statement on April 29, 2009: “From past experience, we also know that influenza may cause mild disease in affluent countries, but more severe disease, with higher mortality, in developing countries.” So observe its dramatic impact in side-effects: It has shut down a whole developing country economically. Shutting down the whole world temporarily as pretext for agendas already on the globalists’ table can’t be that far off: New global health controls for population reduction, a long held goal of the oligarchs (see Robert McNamara and David Rockefeller), disguised as global solution for infectious disease control supplanting the present advisory-only capacity of WHO, into a new binding ‘global health policing authority’ mandated by the United Nations or another surrogate of the International Banksters.
This isn’t so far fetched at all but directly connects motivation, cause, and effect. It is in fact entirely analogous to what is already being proposed for global central banking to respond to the manufactured global financial crisis, global ‘carbon credits’ under the aegis of the new global financial authorities to respond to the manufactured ‘global warming’ crisis, and global war on terror to respond to the manufactured ‘global terrorism’ crisis.
Please note the Orwellianly worded platitudinous concern for humanity offered by the learned Director-General of WHO, as many a ‘untermensch’ humanity is starved to death under abject deprivations while trillions are handed to the gluttonous banksters in bailouts, and with two trillion already spent on the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan where the ‘untermenschen’ are being decimated like ‘cockroaches’: “Above all, this is an opportunity for global solidarity as we look for responses and solutions that benefit all countries, all of humanity. After all, it really is all of humanity that is under threat during a pandemic.”
Indeed, a pandemic which, by her own admission in the same statement, “may cause mild disease in affluent countries, but more severe disease, with higher mortality, in developing countries.” Under this wonderful raison d’être for “global solidarity”, Mr. Gideon Rachman of the Financial Times now has yet another ‘horseman of the apocalypse’ to add to his list of justifications for draconian world governance structures (see ‘And now for a world government’).

WHO changes flu virus strain name from swine flu
Thu Apr 30, 2009 1:31pm EDT
‘GENEVA (Reuters) – The World Health Organization (WHO), bowing to pressure from meat industry producers and concerned governments, said on Thursday it would refer to a deadly new virus strain as influenza A (H1N1) not swine flu. “From today, WHO will refer to the new influenza virus as ‘influenza A (H1N1)’,” it said in a brief announcement posted on its www.who.int/en/ website. The new strain has infected 257 people, of whom 8 have died. It derives from a swine influenza virus but the new strain has been found only in people. No pigs have been confirmed to be sick with it. WHO has consistently said the disease cannot be caught from eating pork if it is prepared properly.’
WHO fears swine flu pandemic imminent
April 29, 2009, Updated 1:44 PM PST
‘(CNN) — The World Health Organization raised the swine flu alert to level five Wednesday indicating it fears a pandemic is imminent. On Wednesday, the outbreak grew in terms of confirmed cases, people killed and countries with infections. Health officials are scrambling to get more information about the virus for which there is no vaccine. “All countries should immediately activate their pandemic preparedness plans,” said Dr. Margaret Chan, the World Health Organization’s director-general. She added: “We do not have all the answers right now but we will get them.” Earlier, Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said: “It’s a virus that we’ve never seen before. There’s no background immunity in the population and it is spreading from human to human, all of which has the potential for a pandemic.” … More than 2,700 other patients worldwide are believed to be suffering from the virus.’
WHO says swine flu moving closer to pandemic (AP)
April 29, 2009, (around 10:53 AM PST)
‘BERLIN – The World Health Organization warned Wednesday that the swine flu outbreak is moving closer to becoming a pandemic, as the United States reported the first swine flu death outside of Mexico, and Germany and Austria became the latest European nations hit by the disease. In Geneva, WHO flu chief Dr. Keiji Fukuda told reporters that there was no evidence the virus was slowing, moving the agency closer to raising its pandemic alert to phase 5, indicating widespread human-to-human transmission.’

‘To avoid confusion with other respiratory illnesses, Santa Clara County’s public health department released these specific conditions to be considered for swine-flu testing.
# Symptoms must include a fever above 100°F or 37.8°C and one or more signs or symptoms including: head and body aches, cough, sore throat, chills, trouble breathing, and vomiting and/or diarrhea.
# People who experience a fever of 100°F and one or more symptoms should call their doctor or clinic. Plan to provide the following information: types of symptoms you are experiencing; recent travel to Mexico; contact with someone who may have influenza.
# The Santa Clara County Public Health Information Line (PHIL) will be staffed to answer public questions about the swine flu. Call 408-885-3980.
# For more information about swine flu, visit www.cdc.gov/swineflu or www.sccgov.org and click on “Swine Flu Update” under Hot Items.’
Zahir’s comment: These symptoms are so generic that if one experiences them and goes to the doctor, one is immediately sent home or to quarantine pending test results – as confirmed by a friend’s wife who is an internal medicine doctor at Kaiser. I am not sure at which point one is marched to the FEMA camps; Homeland Security is now already involved in this “pandemic’s” management. When things deteriorate so far, one is left with no choice but to rationally follow governmental directives – for staying alive before staying free seems to be a sensible tradeoff – and this is why, in my opinion, to make the threat appear real so that civilians will be forced to make that rational choice of following state and federal directives, so many are dead!
Commonsense is held in abeyance just like during the 911 event, as a 1918 viral strain, ‘the Spanish Flu’, classified as ‘H1N1′, which had reportedly killed up to 10 percent of the people who were infected in that outbreak 90 years ago, magically rears its head first in 1976, and now in 2009. Where did it live in hibernation all this time (see here and here)? This is why the unasked question remains, how does a virus walk out of the American biowarfare and other research laboratories and kill Mexico’s youth while creating a global pandemic?
The answer: Just like a militant yogi in the remote Hindu Kush caves, armed to the teeth with ‘Islamism’ and cellphones, brings the mightiest superpower in the history of civilization to its knees on 911 creating the other global pandemic! And just like the NIST Report and Popular Mechanics versions explaining the latter pandemic (see latest reality-check here), this new one too has pigs naturally flying around mutating multi-strained viruses from 1918 as reported by Reuters “New flu virus may be a real mongrel”. Note also here and here that there is no lab context given, nor any reference made in the former reporting the breaking news du jour, to H1N1 pathogens honed in research labs which was previously already reported in their own issue several years ago:
Experts fear escape of 1918 flu from lab
New Scientist, October 2004 by Debora MacKenzie
‘“The potential implications of an infected lab worker – and spread beyond the lab – are terrifying,” says D. A. Henderson of the University of Pittsburgh, a leading biosecurity expert. …
The latest work was done by Yoshihiro Kawaoka at the University of Wisconsin at Madison. His team showed that adding the 1918 gene for the surface protein haemagglutinin to modern viruses made them far deadlier to mice. The researchers also found that people born after 1918 have little or no immunity. The team started the work at the highest level of containment, BSL-4, at Canada’s National Microbiology Laboratory in Winnipeg. Then they decided the viruses were safe enough to handle at the next level down, and did the rest of the work across the border in a BSL-3Ag lab in Madison. The main difference between BSL-4 and BSL-3Ag is that precautions to ensure staff do not get infected are less stringent: while BSL-4 involves wearing fully enclosed body suits, those working at BSL-3Ag labs typically have half-suits. …
By contrast, the team in Georgia, the first to experiment with genetically engineered 1918 viruses, did all its work at BSL-3Ag. Meanwhile, Michael Katze at the University of Washington at Seattle is planning to expose monkeys to aerosols of 1918-type viruses at BSL-3, a step down from BSL-3Ag. The recent SARS escapes were from BSL-3 labs.’
The latest version of New Scientist reports the following from the same author. Please duly observe the artful omission of any reference to what the author wrote in 2004 (above), and instead, making it all seem like it is the swine’s fault – i.e., natural causes:
Swine flu: The predictable pandemic?
New Scientist, 29 April 2009 by Debora MacKenzie
‘ … Flu infects many animals, including waterfowl, pigs and humans. Birds and people rarely catch flu viruses adapted to another host, but they can pass flu to pigs, which also have their own strains. If a pig catches two kinds of flu at once it can act as a mixing vessel, and hybrids can emerge with genes from both viruses. This is what happened in the US in 1998. Until then, American pigs had regular winter flu, much like people, caused by a mutated virus from the great human pandemic of 1918, which killed pigs as well as at least 50 million people worldwide. This virus was a member of the H1N1 family … Over decades, H1N1 evolved in pigs into a mild, purely swine flu, and became genetically fairly stable. In 1976, there was an outbreak of swine H1N1 in people at a military camp in New Jersey, with one death. The virus did not spread efficiently, though, and soon fizzled out. … By 1999, these viruses comprised the dominant flu strain in North American pigs and, unlike the swine virus they replaced, they were actively evolving. There are many versions with different pig or human surface proteins, including one, like the Mexican flu spreading now, with H1 and N1 from the original swine virus. … But the viruses have been actively switching surface proteins to evade the pigs’ immunity. There are now so many kinds of pig flu that it is no longer seasonal. One in five US pig producers actually makes their own vaccines, says Vincent, as the vaccine industry cannot keep up with the changes.
This rapid evolution posed the “potential for pandemic influenza emergence in North America”, …
That’s why the CDC warned last year that swine H1N1 would “represent a pandemic threat” if it started circulating in humans. …
It appears the threat has now resulted in the Mexican flu. “The triple reassortant in pigs seems to be the precursor,” Robert Webster, also at St Jude’s, told New Scientist. …‘
It is useful to remind ourselves at this stage, of Aldous Huxley’s exposition on crucial omissions when defining context: “Great is truth, but still greater, from a practical point of view, is silence about truth. By simply not mentioning certain subjects… totalitarian propagandists have influenced opinion much more effectively than they could have by the most eloquent denunciations.”
Those who have manufactured this “Black Death” ( http://www.cnn.com/2009/US/04/22/missing.virus.sample/index.html ) according to the wishful skepticism of Bertrand Russell as a more drastic substitute for birth-control for population reduction (see ‘Impact of Science on Society’, Chapter 7, especially pages 113-116, here is a link), and as a Machiavellian pretext to inoculate mankind with deadly biological-control and electronic-monitoring mechanisms, are monumental criminals nicely protected by legalisms, national security imperatives, and worthy science for primacy in biological and chemical weapons in the name of defending against any rivals developing it!
If this pandemic is an accidental global happenstance, then so is the global financial collapse, global warming, global war on terror, and global implications of 911, all accidental happenstances!
While good natured and conscionable research scientist obsess with fait accompli of 911 to expose the chicaneries which took America to World War IV, and conscionable jurist activists obsess with torture and murder by the previous Administration – all busily pursuing red herrings – new faits accomplis are being sewn as we speak! Are they so naïve to not appreciate that political science, and fait accompli, trump reactionary science and delayed conscience which only thought of awakening ex post facto? Or are they in on the game as manufactured dissent to distract people from pursuing the real efficacy?

and 911 A Fait Accompli – Pay Attention to Political Science! April 13, 2009
and Open Letter to Jurists, Sunday, April 26, 2009
Having said that, if someone were to ask me for my humble opinion on this urgent Pandemic Alert which now plagues mankind, it would be based on the palpable truism: “it is too late to dig a well after one is already thirsty”.
Therefore, I would answer, follow rational commonsense and protect your family from the immediate curse of the “Black Death” as top most priority. There is however no best recipe to do so, and it ultimately would end up being a very personal Manichean choice, under the worst case scenario, between refusing inoculation and risking infection or FEMA hospitality, or accepting inoculation and risking the concomitant problems that are sure to come with it. One has to acutely understand that scientists and doctors are no more immune from being petty-shills for the New World Order than the newsmedia circus clowns, lauded scholars, holy priests, patriotic politicians, and other respectable “errand boys”. Thus, letting go of one’s own modicum of commonsense can be as detrimental to one’s personal health as letting go of it on the events of 911 has been detrimental to the world’s health. Below is one rational way to reason it out logically, rather than emotionally, for all infectious disease alerts which are NOT airborne. The latter would surely necessitate a different rational analysis to be brought to bear on it. If the infection spread is limited or absent in your immediate area or region, and the number of deaths is less than the total deaths due to other common diseases per year in your region, and no one has knocked on your door with a gun and a syringe pointed at your child, then, braving the statistical odds and ignoring the media propaganda favoring inoculation against this man-made “Black Death” might be a reasonable bet. See note on vaccination.
Do keep in mind however that the local and state authorities also have a mandate. Due to compartmentalization of such matters, many among them would most assuredly be genuinely believing that they are responding to a natural emergency and following the draconian federal directives only in the best interest of the public. In such chaotic conditions, as during Katerina, anyone refusing inoculation, or evacuation, will be deemed a threat to the community (and of course to ‘national security’). The FEMA hospitality suites therefore have been judiciously prepared for the handful of ‘malcontents’ who might insist on making their own personal decisions contrary to federal expediency. See H.R. 645 and this. In order to mitigate public empathy, the ‘enforcers’ backing the local ’syringe-bearing’ authorities may well be non-local military troops who would have no special empathy with the local peoples. See this and this and must watch this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sN3a1oTdDwM .
In any event, remember, that as Muslims, and other consummate theist-fatalists of any religion, we have much less to fear from the dreaded unknown. So keeping faith, take it one day at a time, one crisis at a time, one decision at a time based on the severity of the unfolding crisis and its immediate impact on you, and ultimately, one tomorrow at a time. Keep the chin up and remember to hum along (if you are not into praying): “Ooh, the sun will still come out tomorrow …” as it did for our forefathers through many a tyrannical Pharaohnic time http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yop62wQH498 .
California confirms 14 swine flu cases; health officials suspect 17 others (AP)
Updated: 04/29/2009 12:43:59 PM PDT
‘LOS ANGELES — Swine flu fears led authorities to close a Northern California high school and quarantine a sick Marine at a Southern California base Wednesday as the number of confirmed cases statewide grew to 14. California health authorities said they were investigating another 17 as probable cases. Seven of the confirmed cases were in San Diego County and five were in Imperial County, while Sacramento and San Bernardino counties had one each, said Dr. Gil Chavez, deputy director of the Center for Infectious Disease with the California Department of Public Health. He said state officials are investigating 17 probable cases in eight counties. Riverside County, with four, has the highest number of suspected swine flu cases. “We still continue to see mild cases in California,” Chavez said during a news conference in Sacramento. “Out of all these cases — the 14 confirmed, 17 probable — we’ve only had three hospitalizations so far that we know about and no fatalities.” ‘
‘So far only a handful of public and private schools have closed in California because of confirmed swine flu cases or investigations into illnesses. Teachers at Highlands Elementary School (http://www.pittsburg.k12.ca.us/) in the eastern San Francisco Bay area city of Pittsburg contacted parents Tuesday night to tell them the school will be closed for a week after tests from Contra Costa County health officials revealed three probable cases among fourth-graders, Superintendent Barbara Wilson said. The cases had yet to be confirmed by the state. ‘
Swine Flu Infections Spread to 11 States After First U.S. Death Confirmed (ABC News and AP)
April 29, 2009
‘The swine flu virus has spread to 11 states and infected at least 94 people, according to figures from state officials and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Five more states — Arizona, Michigan, Mass., Nevada and Maine – each now have at least one confirmed case. The latest state to report infections is Maine, with three new cases, according to Gov. John Baldacci, who says all those stricken are at home recovering . In addition to the Maine infections, Richard Besser, acting director of the CDC, said there were now 51 cases in New York; 16 cases in Texas; 14 cases in California; two cases each in Massachusetts, Michigan and Kansas; and single cases in Arizona, Nevada, Indiana and Ohio. The CDC has not officially added the Maine infections to their totals, which stand at 91 confirmed cases. The announcements came on the same day that federal health officials reported the swine flu death of a 22-month-old baby boy in Texas — the first known U.S. fatality from the outbreak.’

Total American cases surged to nearly 100, and Obama said wider school closings might be necessary.”
Swine flu a real swine!
April 29, 2009, 10:37 AM PST
Zahir’s Comment: Apparently this “psyop” (see article link below) has landed in California – two schools reported closed in South San Jose and North-East of San Francisco in Pittsburg, as per a phone call I just received;
‘BRANHAM HIGH SCHOOL IS CLOSED
APRIL 29TH – MAY 5TH.
SCHOOL REOPENS ON WEDNESDAY, MAY 6TH
Under the authority of the Santa Clara County Health Officer, Branham High School will be closed based on the guidance from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The school will be closed starting April 29th, 2009 and will reopen Wednesday, May 6th, 2009. Click below for more information.’
‘Pittsburg Unified School District
For immediate release:
April 29, 2009
As of 11:00 A.M. the Pittsburg Unified School District has no confirmed additional cases of swine flu, beyond the three “probable” cases at Highlands. School continues to be in session at all schools except for Highlands Elementary. Students are being asked to stay home if they experience flu-like symptoms and are being advised to contact their medical provider.’
And it looks like it is moving North rapidly:
Swine flu confirmed in Massachusetts, Maine
April 29, 2009, 02:01 PM ET
‘Disease trackers in Massachusetts and Maine confirmed today that swine flu has arrived in New England, with two boys from Lowell recovering from the viral illness after being exposed while on vacation in Mexico. Three adults in Maine have tested positive, authorities there said. Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and state health authorities said there is no evidence that the Lowell children, whose names and ages were not disclosed because of patient confidentiality laws, have transmitted the virus. Massachusetts disease trackers confirmed today that swine flu has arrived in New England, with two boys from “None of the contact cases, zero of the contact cases have been symptomatic,” Patrick said, emphatically.’
Zahir’s Comment: Just like it’s out of the Asimov’s Foundation Trilogy, I think book 2 (if memory serves well), Foundation and Empire, different crises same agenda. That agendist underlying principle being: “what is inconceivable in normal times is possible in revolutionary times” – RFID implants in the guise of forced inoculations. I think this one might still be a ‘Katerina’ like test-bed to validate / debug procedures already defined – unless international conditions have already been set up for deterioration so badly that a syncopation of domestic and international dynamics is urgent and imminent (and we just don’t know it as yet in the news). So look for news of quarantine… and the subsequent announcement that quarantine has failed!!! I hope all this was still science fiction; was much more enjoyable then. I hope to god this is just a nightmare, not real. Someone suggested that there was news of a viral theft/leak from a bioweapons research lab a short while ago. I tracked it down to this CPR (Council on Public Relations – snide reference to Edward Bernays ‘propaganda’) account published by CNN earlier which makes it appear unrelated to the present crisis:
Army: 3 vials of virus samples missing from Maryland facility
April 22, 2009
‘ WASHINGTON (CNN) — Missing vials of a potentially dangerous virus have prompted an Army investigation into the disappearance from a lab in Maryland. The Army’s Criminal Investigation Command agents have been visiting Fort Detrick in Frederick, Maryland, to investigate the disappearance of the vials. Christopher Grey, spokesman for the command, said this latest investigation has found “no evidence of criminal activity.”
The vials contained samples of Venezuelan Equine Encephalitis, a virus that sickens horses and can be spread to humans by mosquitoes. In 97 percent of cases, humans with the virus suffer flu-like symptoms, but it can be deadly in about 1 out of 100 cases, according to Caree Vander Linden, a spokeswoman for the Army’s Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases. There is an effective vaccine for the disease and there hasn’t been an outbreak in the United States since 1971.
The vials had been at the research institute’s facility at Fort Detrick, home of the Army’s top biological research facility, for more than a decade. The three missing vials were among thousands of vials that were under the control of a senior scientist who retired in 2004. When another Fort Detrick scientist recently inventoried the retired scientist’s biological samples, he discovered that the three vials of the virus were missing. The original scientist’s records about his vials dated back to the days of paper-and-pen inventories.
During the investigation, the retired scientist and another former Fort Detrick researcher cooperated with investigating agents and, according to Vander Linden, they came back to the facility to help look for the vials.
Vander Linden said the investigators know that several years ago an entire freezer full of biological samples broke down and all the samples had to be safely destroyed. But a complete inventory of what was in the freezer was not done before the samples were destroyed. Vander Linden said there’s a “strong possibility” the vials were in that freezer and destroyed, but that isn’t known for sure.
This investigation comes two months after all research at the research institute facility at Fort Detrick was halted for a complete computer-based inventory of all disease samples at the fort. That inventory is expected to be complete before summer and may help solve the mystery of the three missing vials, officials said. ‘
