GLOBAL SWINE FLU SCAM UPDATE - Governments Playing Russian Roulette With Our Lives
I've decided to send you separately - instead of embedded into a regular compilation - this material I've gathered to update you on the latest developments - and there are MANY! - related to the Swine Flu Global Scam.
There will be an important Special Vigil related to all this situation as part of the Meditation Focus #205: Asking the Right Question to be issued next Saturday. I will attempt to present this vast scare-mongering treachery in its proper context, thus shifting the focus of our attention away from the various disturbing aspects of this ploy designed to keep everyone surfing low in the vibrational scale and thus trying to make us vulnerable to the real spiritual and highly disempowering poison that the Real Powers That Be (those that actually control the governments and the media as Alex Collier briefly alluded to in his recent conference) have been injecting in humanity's collective consciousness in their desperate attempt to derail the global spiritual awakening now firmly underway. So please keep this perspective in mind as you read the following information, knowing that nothing they may try to throw at us can affect the sovereign soul beings that we truly are. So don't get too worked up over their feeble attempts to destabilize us and focus instead on radiating the true Healing Power of Love, the only force that can heal the Rift in our souls that made us vulnerable, alone and powerless in the first place.
Until then, may the Real Power that is your innate soul Creation right keep growing and radiating, and may you finally remember just Who You Are...

"The country is pacified by a blind belief that the drugs being prescribed to them have been proven safe because our government health agencies have our physical health and well-being in their best intentions. This is a lie, an extraordinarily deadly lie. Iatrogenesis, medically induced injury and death, is the number one cause of death in American medicine annually, since only a small percentage of these deaths are actually reported. Each year more Americans die from preventable deaths due to our medical system than all military causalities in the two world wars combined. This is tantamount to medical genocide. One of the major causes of these deaths is the overmedication of Americans in all ages. The constant need for profits has created an environment that allows the pharmaceutical industrial complex to use their enormous financial and political clout to literally make normal life experiences into new diseases, such as social anxiety disorder, in order to sell its drugs. The pharmaceutical industry has been given the authority to pathologize life, with the drugging of our children, seniors, etc. For example, the leading cause of AIDS deaths today is a result of liver failure. This is not a condition of HIV infection, but a direct result of the anti-HIV drug AZT. Is it little wonder then that we are being intimidated and frightened into believing that mandatory vaccination is being touted even though the science of efficacy and safety, even the need, for these new swine flu vaccines is patently unproven. It is perhaps one of the largest falsehoods ever perpetuated on humanity that dwarfs the sleaze on Wall Street."

Flu Vaccine Brainwashing In Prime Time ABC Show (October 21, 2009) http://www.infowars.com/flu-vaccine-brainwashing-in-prime-time-abc-show/
A prime time ABC drama show that aired last week featured an almost subliminal example of brainwashing that encouraged people to take the swine flu shot, proving that the propaganda campaign to sell people on the governments health agenda is widespread and not just confined to this weeks admitted campaign to implant suggestive messages in network TV broadcasts. As we reported recently, starting on Monday, the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF) and the government launched an insidious brainwashing program aimed at organically weaving the governments political propaganda into prime time network television shows, with positive talking points about Obamas environmental, bailout, health care and servitude agenda being seamlessly integrated into the content of dramas, reality shows and comedies.The fact that this is taking place right now is not an invention of paranoid conspiracy theorists, it was admitted by the organizations involved who put out a press release bragging about how helpful they were being to society by implanting such brainwashing into the plots of network TV shows. Scores of the most popular shows on ABC, FOX, CBS and NBC airing this week will be littered with government talking points, putting the United States on a par with countries like North Korea and Communist China, who similarly implant state propaganda into soap operas and dramas. However, the notion that such propaganda is merely confined to a single broadcast week is a complete misnomer. Rupert Murdochs Twentieth Century Fox corporation has admitted to planting political brainwashing within its globally popular TV shows and indeed boasts that it is proud of the fact. A corporate video shows Fox executives and stars of its universally recognized shows bragging about how they use the platform of hit shows that are broadcast worldwide to implant messages about the supposed threat of global warming.With the establishment desperate to convince increasingly suspicious Americans to take the swine flu shot, it seems they have now resorted to implanting blatantly suggestive propaganda about vaccines into prime time network TV shows.

Obama Declares Swine Flu a National Emergency (Oct 24) http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20091024/ap_on_go_pr_wh/us_obama_swine_flu
WASHINGTON President Barack Obama declared the swine flu outbreak a national emergency, giving his health chief the power to let hospitals move emergency rooms offsite to speed treatment and protect noninfected patients. The declaration, signed Friday night and announced Saturday, comes with the disease more prevalent than ever in the country and production delays undercutting the government's initial, optimistic estimates that as many as 120 million doses of the vaccine could be available by mid-October. (...) The government now hopes to have about 50 million doses of swine flu vaccine out by mid-November and 150 million in December. The flu virus has to be grown in chicken eggs, and the yield hasn't been as high as was initially hoped, officials have said. "Many millions" of Americans have had swine flu so far, according to an estimate that CDC Director Dr. Thomas Frieden gave Friday. The government doesn't test everyone to confirm swine flu so it doesn't have an exact count. He also said there have been more than 20,000 hospitalizations.
Swine Flu Scam Reaches New Heights With Obamas Emergency Declaration (October 26, 2009) http://www.infowars.com/swine-flu-scam-reaches-new-heights-with-obamas-emergency-declaration/
President Obamas declaration that the H1N1 outbreak represents a national emergency seems to be little more than a public relations stunt aimed at intimidating reticent Americans into taking a vaccine that is becoming increasingly unpopular and unnecessary. Despite the fact that swine flu cases have seemingly peaked, allied to the fact that seasonal flu has proven far deadlier, on Friday night Obama declared a national emergency in order to allow hospitals to better handle the surge in patients by allowing them to bypass certain federal laws. What surge in patients? Swine flu has killed just 0.2 people per thousand who have caught the virus, a far lower potency than the annual flu virus which kills one patient per thousand, meaning swine flu has proven to be around 400% less deadly than the regular flu. Either the government is preparing for an engineered pandemic of which they have prior knowledge, or Obamas announcement is a flagrant abuse of executive power and a ruse to coerce more people into taking the vaccine. As we have exhaustively documented, polls out of the U.S., as well as globally, show that a rapidly growing number of health professionals and the general public are refusing to take the vaccine because they either think it is unnecessary or they are concerned about potential side-effects. Despite a desperate $16 million media propaganda campaign on behalf of the federal government that is trying to brainwash Americans into rolling up their sleeves and taking the shot, a majority of people arent buying the hype. The purpose of Obamas declaration is to heighten fears surrounding swine flu and create the artificial impression that the vaccine is in demand, when the opposite is the true. The government hopes this will create a herd-like rush to take the shot amongst the general public. Early indications are that the ruse may be working. CLIP
Ron Paul Questions Why Obama Daughters Havent Taken Swine Flu Vaccine (October 27, 2009) http://www.prisonplanet.com/ron-paul-questions-why-obama-daughters-havent-taken-swine-flu-vaccine.html
Despite declaring national emergency in response to H1N1 outbreak, President refuses to allow his own children to be inoculated with controversial shot -- Congressman Ron Paul has questioned why, despite his efforts to encourage the general public to get vaccinated against the H1N1 virus, President Barack Obama has refused to allow his own daughters to take the swine flu shot. Despite the fact that Obama on Friday declared a national emergency in response to the H1N1 outbreak, he apparently doesnt deem it enough of a threat to have his two daughters vaccinated against the virus. Such double standards have led media pundits to call for Obama to get his daughters vaccinated on live television, in an effort to encourage American parents to do the same for their kids. The swine flu vaccination program, which was initially intended to be a mass inoculation covering the entire population, has been rejected by a majority of Americans who harbor deep suspicions about dangerous additives contained in the vaccine such as mercury and squalene. In a Campaign For Liberty video message, former Presidential candidate Ron Paul labeled the vaccination program a failure, and slammed Obama for failing to follow the same advice he gave to the nation.Its interesting to note that the Presidents children have not gotten their shots and the explanation for this is it hasnt been available to them now thats a little bit hard to buy when you think that probably anything the President wants can be available for their children, said Paul, adding, So in a way hes made his decision not to give his children these inoculations so if he has freedom of choice on this, I would like to make sure that all the American people have the same amount of freedom of choice.Others have echoed similar sentiments. Surely if there is a national emergency and if the President and First Lady of the United States wanted flu shots for their daughters, they could get them. It is certainly connected to our national security right? I mean the president needs to have his wits about him 24/7 not worrying over sick children.
(...) Obama certainly isnt stupid enough to inject his own kids with the same toxic soup that he encourages the idiot public to receive, and will probably be keen on getting access to the special additive-free swine flu shots produced by Baxter International that have been made available for the elite. As Spiegel Online reported earlier this month, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and government ministers received a mercury and squalene-free H1N1 vaccine. The Vakzin [vaccine] does not contain disputed additives contrary to the vaccine for the remainder of the population, reported the newspaper. Soldiers in the German army were also given the adjuvant-free vaccine. Employees of the Paul Ehrlich Institute in Germany also received the green inoculation after their president Johannes Löwer labeled the vaccine a greater threat than the virus itself. Löwers comment came after German lung specialist Wolfgang Wodarg said the vaccine increases the risk of cancer. The nutrient solution for the vaccine consists of cancerous cells from animals. In the video update, Congressman Paul also warned that Obamas emergency declaration on Friday was part of a plan to condition people to accept the notion of government as protector and coerce the public into complying with whatever they say, including forced quarantines. Watch the Ron Paul video clip -- Note: According to the following article, "Malia and Sasha were both vaccinated for H1N1 last week"... is it true? It was initially published - that they were vaccinated for the regular flu only... Who are we to believe?
U.S. may end up discarding unused H1N1 vaccine (Oct 28, 2009) http://www.reuters.com/article/GCA-SwineFlu/idUSTRE59Q3O720091028
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. government may end up throwing away unused doses of swine flu vaccine if people cannot get it soon enough, the director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Tuesday.Members of Congress questioned whether federal officials were too rosy in their estimates of how much vaccine would be available and when, and companies said they were still struggling to produce immunizations against H1N1. CDC director Dr. Thomas Frieden said 22.4 million doses were now available to states, which can get them a day after they order them."It's quite likely that too little vaccine is one of the things that's making people more interested in getting vaccinated, frankly," Frieden told reporters."We think it will get easier to find vaccine in the weeks that come."President Barack Obama's daughters found it. "Malia and Sasha were both vaccinated for H1N1 last week, after the vaccine became available to Washington, D.C. schoolchildren," a White House blog reads."President and Mrs. Obama have not yet been vaccinated for H1N1, and they will wait until the needs of the priority groups identified by the CDC -- including young people under the age of 24, pregnant women, and people with underlying conditions -- have been met." Many states and cities say they have received about one-tenth as much vaccine as they originally had expected by this time. Frieden said the delays may discourage people who are lining up for vaccine. "It is likely also as we produce more vaccine and as both people are given the opportunity to get vaccinated, and as disease maybe wanes in the future, we will have significant amounts of vaccine that can't be used," Frieden said."One of the messages for states, localities and health providers is not to reserve vaccine that they have available, to give it out as soon as it comes in, because more is on the way."In September, U.S. officials said 40 million vaccine doses would be available by the end of October and they estimated 20 million doses a week would be delivered, with a goal of 250 million doses by the end of flu season in March or April. UNRELIABLE ESTIMATESMaine Republican Senator Susan Collins asked why the estimates were so far off. "It now appears that much of the vaccine could arrive only after many people have already been infected with H1N1," she said in a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, released late on Monday.

WHO Admits to Releasing Pandemic Virus into Population via 'Mock-Up' Vaccines (September 03 2009) http://www.theflucase.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=488%3Awho-admits-to-releasing-pandemic-virus-into-population-via-mock-up-vaccines-&catid=41%3Ahighlighted-news&Itemid=105⟨=en
The document on the WHO website linked below states that it is common procedure to release pandemic viruses into the population in order to get a jump ahead of the real pandemic, so as to fast track the vaccine for when it is needed. In Europe, some manufacturers have conducted advance studies using a so-called "mock-up" vaccine. Mock-up vaccines contain an active ingredient for an influenza virus that has not circulated recently in human populations and thus mimics the novelty of a pandemic virus.According to the website, Such advance studies can greatly expedite regulatory approval. On June 11 the World Health Organization (WHO) raised its swine flu pandemic alert from a 5 to a 6. Phase 6 is the highest level alert, and reflects the speed with which a virus is spreading -- not its severity.This classification also allows for a vaccine to qualify for a fast-track procedure for licensing and approval, and this process is now ongoing for the swine flu vaccine.What you may not know, however, is that WHO, together with health officials, regulatory authorities and vaccine manufacturers, have been working since 2007 long before this new threat of swine flu emerged to explore a broad range of issues surrounding the regulatory approval of pandemic vaccines. According to the WHO website: Ways were sought to shorten the time between the emergence of a pandemic virus and the availability of safe and effective vaccines. One such method used in Europe is to conduct advance studies using a mock-up vaccine that contains an active ingredient for an influenza virus that has not circulated recently in human populations.When testing these mock-up vaccines, it is very possible to release the novel influenza virus into the population, as its purpose is to mimic the novelty of a pandemic virus and greatly expedite regulatory approval. Government officials have other tricks up their sleeves to ensure these new, barely tested vaccines easily make it to market as well, such as:· Labeling the vaccine a strain change rather than an entirely new vaccine. This method states the new vaccine has built on technology used to produce vaccines for seasonal influenza, and the change for the pandemic vaccine is similar to a strain change used to produce a new seasonal vaccine each flu season.In the United States, vaccine manufacturers are required to submit fewer data if they already have a licensed flu vaccine and will use the same manufacturing process for the pandemic vaccine.· Using a rolling review procedure. This allows manufacturers to submit sets of data for regulatory review as they become available. In other words, theyre free to distribute the vaccine and then submit the safety data later on.Would You Want a Fast-Tracked Vaccine Injected Into Your Body?By very definition, fast-tracked vaccines are those that have received very little safety testing prior to being used. So any time you agree to get one, you are essentially a guinea pig.Vaccine manufacturer GlaxoSmithKline has actually stated: "Clinical trials will be limited, due to the need to provide the vaccine to governments as quickly as possible. Additional studies will therefore be required and conducted after the vaccine is made available."And WHO likewise says:Time constraints mean that clinical data at the time when pandemic vaccines are first administered will inevitably be limited. Further testing of safety and effectiveness will need to take place after administration of the vaccine has begun.Why would anyone who knows the facts sign up for a vaccine that really needs further safety studies but wont receive them until AFTER its already been given out? By then it will be too late.So please realize that if you or your child receive a swine flu vaccine, you will be acting as a TEST subject. Remember this vaccine will not be made using the methods of the past. In order to speed up the cultivation of the virus and the manufacturing process, theyre using human liver cells instead of chicken eggs. Whether this new procedure is better or worse than the old method, I cant say but its never been used before and they have not had time to conduct any human testing.So, its a giant game of Russian Roulette that you simply want to avoid. Nearly all of the vaccines created will also include thimerosal (mercury), and the toxic adjuvant squalene, both of which have been clearly shown to carry significant health risks.You should know, too, that vaccine makers and federal officials have been rendered immune from lawsuits. Should anything go wrong with this current vaccine they will not have to pay a single cent to anyone!
ALERT Canadians: Toxic Ingredients in the Arepanrix H1N1 Vaccine Harm Your Health (27 October 2009) http://www.theflucase.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=1419%3Aalert-canadians-toxic-ingredients-in-the-arepanrix-h1n1-vaccine-harm-your-health&catid=41%3Ahighlighted-news&Itemid=105&lang=en
Health Canada has authorized the sale of Arepanrix H1N1 vaccine based on no conclusive clinical testing. The authorization is based on the Health Canada review of available data on the quality, safety and immunogenicity of similar vaccines, which established the benefit/risk profile in favour of inoculating the Canadian population.Read the Notice of Decision issued by Health Canada. The decision by the Health Minister was based on a belief (not qualified or informed) that immediate action is required to deal with the H1N1 risk. The assertion that the decision is based on limited clinical testing is being misapplied. There has been NO conclusive results from any clinical trials on the Arepanrix H1N1 vaccine.This report is designed to inform you how the risks outweigh the benefits of the vaccine. It will demonstrate how the Health Canada assessment is flawed and contradictory to established research on the detrimental health effects of the vaccine ingredients contained in Arepanrix. CLIP
THIS IS THE SCIENTIFIC PROOF THAT THIMEROSAL IS HIGHLY TOXIC!
Mitochondrial dysfunction, impaired oxidative-reduction activity, degeneration, and death in human neuronal and fetal cells induced by low-level exposure to thimerosal and other metal compounds (June 2009) http://www.informaworld.com/smpp/content~content=a910652305~db=all~jumptype=rss
Thimerosal (ethylmercurithiosalicylic acid), an ethylmercury (EtHg)-releasing compound (49.55% mercury (Hg)), was used in a range of medical products for more than 70 years. Of particular recent concern, routine administering of Thimerosal-containing biologics/childhood vaccines have become significant sources of Hg exposure for some fetuses/infants. This study was undertaken to investigate cellular damage among in vitro human neuronal (SH-SY-5Y neuroblastoma and 1321N1 astrocytoma) and fetal (nontransformed) model systems using cell vitality assays and microscope-based digital image capture techniques to assess potential damage induced by Thimerosal and other metal compounds (aluminum (Al) sulfate, lead (Pb)(II) acetate, methylmercury (MeHg) hydroxide, and mercury (Hg)(II) chloride) where the cation was reported to exert adverse effects on developing cells. Thimerosal-associated cellular damage was also evaluated for similarity to pathophysiological findings observed in patients diagnosed with autistic disorders (ADs). Thimerosal-induced cellular damage as evidenced by concentration- and time-dependent mitochondrial damage, reduced oxidative-reduction activity, cellular degeneration, and cell death in the in vitro human neuronal and fetal model systems studied. Thimerosal at low nanomolar (nM) concentrations induced significant cellular toxicity in human neuronal and fetal cells. Thimerosal-induced cytoxicity is similar to that observed in AD pathophysiologic studies. Thimerosal was found to be significantly more toxic than the other metal compounds examined. Future studies need to be conducted to evaluate additional mechanisms underlying Thimerosal-induced cellular damage and assess potential co-exposures to other compounds that may increase or decrease Thimerosal-mediated toxicity.
POLL: Swine Flu Vaccine, Parents Doubt Safety' (Oct 22) http://abcnews.go.com/PollingUnit/SwineFlu/swine-flu-abc-news-washington-post-poll/story?id=8879819 Nearly four in 10 parents do not plan to have their children get the swine flu vaccine this year, with doubts about its safety overwhelmingly cited as the chief reason, underscoring safety concerns as potentially a major impediment to vaccination efforts. Poll shows 40 percent of American parents refuse to vaccinate their kids. (...) Even though concern about catching the flu has risen sharply since August, only 35 percent of adults plan to get vaccinated (including 2 percent who say they've already done so); 62 percent say they probably will not get vaccinated. More parents, 56 percent, intend to have their children vaccinated (including 4 percent who say they've done so), but even among parents, 39 percent say they probably won't. WHY NOT? This poll asked those parents, open-endedly, why they don't plan to have their children vaccinated, a robust approach because it doesn't prompt for predetermined answers. Far surpassing other mentions, 53 percent in this group raised safety concerns, citing worry about side effects or doubts whether the vaccine's been sufficiently tested. CLIP

OTTAWA With federal officials declaring Friday that Canada is in its "second wave" of the H1N1 pandemic, a new poll reveals that almost half of Canadians do not plan to get the vaccine created to stop it.Thirty per cent of those surveyed said they are not at all likely to roll up their sleeves, while 18 per cent said they are not very likely, according to a poll by Ipsos Reid for Canwest News Service and Global National.While 48 per cent aren't keen to get the shot, 51 per cent are leaning toward it. Thirty-six per cent need little convincing, and said they are very likely to get the vaccine that was approved Wednesday. Fifteen per cent said they were somewhat likely to get it.The results reflect the division among Canadians who are now debating what to do when the H1N1 flu shot is available in their communities, as well as the challenge public health officials have ahead of them in trying to tip the balance towards immunization.

Certainly those at serious risk should get the vaccine, but there doesn't seem to be much evidence that it is needed for everyone -- (...) With few exceptions, most of the 86 deaths in Canada (nine in B.C.) attributed to H1N1 as of Oct. 22 have been linked to underlying medical conditions.In fact, most documented cases of swine flu have been mild ones, according to the Public Health Agency of Canada, which also reminds us that other flu strains account for between 2,000 and 8,000 Canadian deaths each year. The decision is personal, of course, and mine is based on many things, including research and my relative good health. It's based, too, on a growing unease that our modern society seems inordinately predisposed to the quick-fix petri dish cure for fear a common sniffle might morph into a death sentence, instead of trusting our own built-in immune systems.
One in five kids had swine flu? No, not really, CDC now says (October 23, 2009) http://www.theflucase.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=1377%3Aone-in-five-kids-had-swine-flu-no-not-really-cdc-now-says-october-23-2009-1233-pm&catid=1%3Alatest-news&Itemid=64&lang=en
Media reports Thursday that one in five kids had the pandemic H1N1 influenza virus during the first 11 days of October were a misinterpretation, Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said at a news conference this morning. What researchers actually found was that one in five kids had an influenza-like illness during that period, but only a minority of those cases were likely to be swine flu.The results came from a telephone survey of 14,000 randomly selected households, who were asked if they had suffered influenza-like symptoms from Oct. 1 to Oct. 11. The responses indicated that one in five kids had suffered such symptoms and about 7% of adults. No effort was made to confirm that the illnesses were, in fact, swine flu.Frieden said that at the peak of the epidemic, in some localities, as many as one in five kids were indeed infected by the virus. In this survey, however, it is more likely that most of the the children simply had colds or sniffles. "The data simply show that kids get a lot of infections," he said.

Threat of martial law in France looms as "swine flu" jab campaign starts (21 October 2009) http://www.theflucase.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=1256%3Athreat-of-martial-law-in-france-looms-as-qswine-fluq-jab-campaign-starts&catid=41%3Ahighlighted-news&Itemid=105&lang=en
Fears of the threat of martial law being implemented in the coming weeks in France are growing after the start of the mass "swine flu" vaccination campaign yesterday. French group SOS Justice says that the organisation of the "swine flu" vaccination campaign has been shaped to increase the chances of the successful implementation of military rule. The mass "swine flu" vaccination operation has been organised to fit the country's seven defence zones, set up to allow martial law to be imposed swiftly in the event of a national emergency such as a pandemic. The zones -- similar to the FEMA regions in the USA -- are Bordeaux, Lille, Lyon, Marseille, Metz, Paris and Rennes. A document from 2006, says that the military will be able to close borders, shut down schools and stop public assemblies among other martial law style measures in the event of a national emergency such as a pandemic. Furthermore, the same document contained plans for dealing with mass fatalities, specifically, the need to identify mass graves. A former director of CNRS, J-P Petit has said that the French army belonging to overseas territories (DOM-TOM) has been told to prepare for mass forced vaccinations and to arrest protestors. CLIP

Only 8 per cent said that they were worried by the "swine flu" while two thirds said they were not worried by the "swine flu". No wonder. The "swine flu" has completely bypassed Austria in spite of the dire predictions by the WHO, the Austrian government and the hype of the mainstream media. In spite of the fact there was no sign of any "swine flu" pandemic in the form of lab tests, sick people, let alone actual fatalities, the Austrian government moved quickly to implement military-style measures and even quarantined by force a family "suspected" of having contracted the "swine flu" in Mallorca, fueling fears that this a pandemic artificially generated to achieve political and financial goals.
World Health Organisation Admits No Deadly Mutation of H1N1 Swine Flu (September 30, 2009) http://dprogram.net/2009/09/30/world-health-organisation-admits-no-deadly-mutation-of-h1n1-swine-flu/
The World Health Organization, the UN agency (ir-) responsible for declaring a Phase 6 PANDEMIC global alert over what it calls H1N1 Influenza A or Swine Flu, whose chief Dr Margaret Chan has repeatedly warned that while Swine Flu to date had been rather mild, that the emergency declaration was necessary because it could mutate aggressively into a deadly pandemic killing millions, now admits well into the flu season in the Northern Hemisphere that H1N1 has apparently not mutated.
(...) However, even though the WHO admits it is not testing patients for H1N1 around the world, they also state that the H1N1 pandemic virus is becoming more common than the common seasonal flu virus. A simple question in the interest of accuracy: How in Hells blazes do they know that if they stopped testing around the world? Gut feeling? WHOs intuition that everyone who has a fever, cough, headache and or sore throat around the world automatically must have H1N1? The alarming aspect of this entire charade is that it will likely have severe health consequences for millions or tens of millions of some three billion people around the world targeted to get injections of largely untested so-called H1N1 Swine Flu vaccines.Vaccines for South nations?Equaly bizarre is the fact that in her latest comments, the WHOs Chan seemed preoccupied with how to get vaccines to poorer countries mainly in the Southern Hemisphere. Yet the same WHO Strategic Advisory Group of Experts, SAGE, states on the WHO official website that H1N1 does not pose a major risk to the Southern Hemisphere.
(...) The WHO is working to raise a billion dollars to help buy vaccines for developing countries that cannot produce them themselves. The United States and several other countries have stated they plan to make 10 percent of their vaccine supply available to others in need. The vehicle to raise funds for the apparently not-threatened countries of the south is a public-private partnership of the Who established in 2000 called GAVI. Bill Gates, GAVI and the Good Club - One source for the desired billion dollars for spreading untested H1N1 vaccines to the developing world will clearly be the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Over the past decade the Gates Foundation, the largest tax-exempt foundation in the United States since it pooled funds with fellow billionaire investor Warren Buffett, has put $1 billion into something called GAVI Alliance, formerly the Global Alliance for Vaccination and Immunization.The Gates Foundation sits on the GAVI board together with the major Swine Flu vaccine maker GlaxoSmithKline and others from the global drug industry. Over the past decade the Gates Foundation alone has pumped $1 billion into GAVI to spread vaccines across the Third World. The Gates Foundation is the largest financial backer of the WHO-linked GAVI public-private partnership. This is the same Bill Gates Foundation which is a major sponsor of the curious Svalbard Arctic Doomsday Seed Vault along with Syngenta and major Genetically Modified seed manufacturers.It is also the foundation of the same Bill Gates who co-founded an elite ultra-private club of billionaires in New York at the home of Sir Paul Nurse, the President of the Rockefeller University. That elite club, whose members include David Rockefeller, billionaire speculator George Soros and Gates friend Warren Buffett, and CNN founder Ted Turner, calls itself the Good Club. It sounds good, but what they dont say is good for whom? In the event the reports leaking out of their first May meeting suggest that the preoccupation of Gates and his fellow billionaires was how to dramatically reduce world population. Thats definitely not good for the worlds population who face involuntary reduction.Ted Turner some years ago in an interview with a nominally Christian US magazine, defended his vision of a world of merely 225 million people. David Rockefeller and his brothers created the global movement to reduce population growth back in 1953 with the founding of the Population Council, one of the least known and most influential organizations in the world. Gates and Buffett are major funders of global population reduction programs, as is Turner. The programs in Africa and elsewhere are masked as philanthropy and providing health services for poor Africans. In reality they involve population sterilization via vaccination and other medicines that make women of child-bearing age infertile. The Gates Foundation, where Buffett deposited the bulk of his wealth two years ago, is also backing introduction of GMO seeds into Africa under the cloak of the Second Green Revolution in Africa. The introduction of GMO patented seeds in Africa to date has met with enormous indigenous resistance. Tellingly, health experts claim that were the intent of US philanthropists such as Gates really to improve the health and well-being of black Africans, the same millions invested in providing minimal sanitary water and sewage systems would revolutionize the health conditions of the Continent. Vaccinating a person who then goes to drink feces-polluted water is hardly healthy in any respect. Many organizations have concluded the true aim of the vaccinations is to make people sicker and even more susceptible to disease and death.Tricks with WHO death dataAnother little known fact about the WHO pandemic operation which gives their dire warnings about H1N1 the necessary gravitas to scare the dickens out of pregnant women, parents and just about anybody, are the death statistics constantly cited when data on purported H1N1 cases are mentioned. As of the last report at end September 2009 the WHO claimed 3917 deaths due to H1N1 Influenza A or Swine Flu. In most cases, even the WHO and the Atlanta US Governments CDC has been forced to admit, deaths were in patients who already has some severe respiratory disorder or grave illness when they contracted what was named H1N1 Influenza A. They never to date have offered the slightest proof that it was not those grave prior illnesses which caused death and that the flu symptoms were merely a coincident event, what epidemiologists term an opportunistic infection.

Farrakhan suspicious of H1N1 vaccine (Oct. 19, 2009) http://www.upi.com/Top_News/US/2009/10/19/Farrakhan-suspicious-of-H1N1-vaccine/UPI-63931256011008/
MEMPHIS, Oct. 19 (UPI) -- Nation of Islam leader Minister Louis Farrakhan told an audience in Memphis he believes the H1N1 flu vaccine was developed to kill people, a witness said.Farrakhan, 76, spoke for nearly three hours Sunday at a gathering to observe the religious group's Holy Day of Atonement, which also marked the 14th anniversary of the Million Man March in Washington, the (Memphis) Commercial Appeal reported, citing a source who attended the speech. "The Earth can't take 6.5 billion people. We just can't feed that many. So what are you going to do? Kill as many as you can. We have to develop a science that kills them and makes it look as though they died from some disease," Farrakhan said, adding that many wise people won't take the vaccine. "The black community has become toxic and must cleanse and restore peace from within," Farrakhan said. Farrakhan told listeners not to become complacent as a result of Barack Obama's election as the United States' first black president, the newspaper said. "You have to understand that he was voted in to take on the affairs of a nation, not yours and mine. He is the American president, not the black president," he said.
H1N1 Vaccine-Chemical Cocktail of Death - Pregnant Moms Refusing Swine Flu Vaccine http://politicolnews.com/topics/h1n1-vaccine-chemical-cocktail-of-death/
Mothers in the UK are joining others around the world in refusing the Swine Flu Vaccine fearing that the side effects could prove to deform their unborn babies. The corruption and greed has gone far enough as we just learned that the drug maker Pfizer had to pay billions because it lied about its products. Both Merck and Wyeth have also been sued for dangerous and damaging drugs on the market that were approved without testing by the FDA.(...) Some real facts about the Swine Flu Vaccine-long term effects of the chemicals-aluminum-long term effects of mercury-brain damage-long term effects of aborted fetus tissues-genetic manipulation-long term effects of squaline adjuvants-the very real fear of the 1976 Paralysis-Guillian-Barre-Disease.-for pregnant moms-this could mean damaged or deformed babies or death.-for older people-destroys their immune system causing death.-for younger people-diseases such as cancer, diabetes, damaged immunity or d The British Newspaper the Daily Mirror has accurately reported the truth about this swine flu vaccine, they are not influenced by maintaining their advertising revenue like : CNN, NBC, ABC, and CBS. However the US media is reporting false information due to their ties to the drug company CEOs. (...) The difference between good and bad squalene is the route by which it enters your body. Injection is an abnormal route of entry which incites your immune system to attack all the squalene in your body, not just the vaccine adjuvant. This means if you get the swine flu vaccine your immune system will destroy squalene the good kind- especially in the nervous system. This spells disaster for you body and an unnatural chain of events that will damage your body permanently. There is no turning back no undoing the damage, and no recourse legally if you are injured by this drug company fiasco.The government knows this and is still proceeding with mandatory laws to enforce compliance with taking this swine flu vaccine. Be very aware that the only people that will benefit from this Swine Flu Vaccine will be the drug companies. A Swine Flu Vaccine Result-Damaged Babies - None of these ingredients have ever been used in this manner, in this quantity and it is unapproved by the FDA and yet every man, woman and child must be vaccinated? This is sheer insanity and it shows how incompetent the Obama administration is to have approved, and paid for this colossal mistake. This will increase health care costs everywhere in the world by the World Health Organization that claim they are the super power and the USA must comply with its mandated and untested N1H1 vaccine.

VeriChip shares jump after H1N1 patent license win (Sept 21, 2009) http://www.reuters.com/article/hotStocksNews/idUSTRE58K4BZ20090921
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. The triage system will provide multiple levels of identification -- the first will identify the agent as virus or non-virus, the second level will classify the virus and alert the user to the presence of pandemic threat viruses and the third level will identify the precise pathogen, VeriChip said in a white paper published May 7, 2009.
Novartis expects swine flu boost in Q4 (Oct 22, 2009) http://uk.reuters.com/article/idUKTRE59L0ZJ20091022
ZURICH (Reuters) - Swiss drugmaker Novartis (NOVN.VX) said sales would grow faster than expected this year, even without a shot in the arm of up to $700 million (420 million pounds) from its H1N1 swine flu pandemic vaccine. Third-quarter net profit at Novartis, which joined other major drugmakers in reporting strong trading conditions, nudged up 1 percent to $2.1 billion, in line with forecasts, the firm said on Thursday."A surprisingly strong set of operating figures," said DZ Bank analyst Thomas Maul. "Management guidance, especially the outlook for the pharmaceuticals division, is amazingly bullish." Novartis shares rose 0.5 percent to 52.75 Swiss francs by 8:36 a.m. British time, versus a 0.6 percent drop in the DJ Stoxx European healthcare sector .SXDP. This year is turning out to be better than initially feared for Novartis and other major pharmaceutical companies, thanks to hefty price increases and windfall sales arising from the H1N1 outbreak, though long-term problems like increasing competition from makers of generic drugs have not gone away.
Children Who Are Not Vaccinated Never Get Autism! http://www.venusproject.com/ethics_in_action/Children_Autism.html
CHICAGO, Dec. 7 (UPI) -- It's a far piece from the horse-and-buggies of Lancaster County, Pa., to the cars and freeways of Cook County, Ill.But thousands of children cared for by Homefirst Health Services in metropolitan Chicago have at least two things in common with thousands of Amish children in rural Lancaster: They have never been vaccinated. And they don't have autism. "We have a fairly large practice. We have about 30,000 or 35,000 children that we've taken care of over the years, and I don't think we have a single case of autism in children delivered by us who never received vaccines," said Dr. Mayer Eisenstein, Homefirst's medical director who founded the practice in 1973. Homefirst doctors have delivered more than 15,000 babies at home, and thousands of them have never been vaccinated.The few autistic children Homefirst sees were vaccinated before their families became patients, Eisenstein said. "I can think of two or three autistic children who we've delivered their mother's next baby, and we aren't really totally taking care of that child -- they have special care needs. But they bring the younger children to us. I don't have a single case that I can think of that wasn't vaccinated." The autism rate in Illinois public schools is 38 per 10,000, according to state Education Department data; the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention puts the national rate of autism spectrum disorders at 1 in 166 -- 60 per 10,000."We do have enough of a sample," Eisenstein said. "The numbers are too large to not see it. We would absolutely know. We're all family doctors. If I have a child with autism come in, there's no communication. It's frightening. You can't touch them. It's not something that anyone would miss."
(...) Thimerosal, which is 49.6 percent ethyl mercury by weight, was phased out of most U.S. childhood immunizations beginning in 1999, but the CDC recommends flu shots for pregnant women and last year began recommending them for children 6 to 23 months old. Most of those shots contain thimerosal.Thimerosal-preserved vaccines are currently being injected into millions of children in developing countries around the world. "My mandate ... is to make sure at the end of the day that 100,000,000 are immunized ... this year, next year and for many years to come ... and that will have to be with thimerosal-containing vaccines," said John Clements of the World Health Organization at a June 2000 meeting called by the CDC.That meeting was held to review data that thimerosal might be linked with autism and other neurological problems. But in 2004 the Institute of Medicine panel said evidence against a link is so strong that health authorities, "whether in the United States or other countries, should not include autism as a potential risk" when formulating immunization policies. But where is the simple, straightforward study of autism in never-vaccinated U.S. children? Based on our admittedly anecdotal and limited reporting among the Amish, the home-schooled and now Chicago's Homefirst, that may prove to be a significant omission.
Gardasil Researcher Drops A Bombshell http://thebulletin.us/articles/2009/10/25/top_stories/doc4ae4b76d07e16766677720.txt
(...) "I came away from the talk with the perception that the risk of adverse side effects is so much greater than the risk of cervical cancer, I couldn't help but question why we need the vaccine at all," said Joan Robinson, Assistant Editor at the Population Research Institute. Dr. Harper began her remarks by explaining that 70 percent of all HPV infections resolve themselves without treatment within a year. Within two years, the number climbs to 90 percent. Of the remaining 10 percent of HPV infections, only half will develop into cervical cancer, which leaves little need for the vaccine. She went on to surprise the audience by stating that the incidence of cervical cancer in the U.S. is already so low that "even if we get the vaccine and continue PAP screening, we will not lower the rate of cervical cancer in the US." There will be no decrease in cervical cancer until at least 70 percent of the population is vaccinated, and even then, the decrease will be minimal. Apparently, conventional treatment and preventative measures are already cutting the cervical cancer rate by four percent a year. At this rate, in 60 years, there will be a 91.4 percent decline just with current treatment. Even if 70 percent of women get the shot and required boosters over the same time period, which is highly unlikely, Harper says Gardasil still could not claim to do as much as traditional care is already doing.Dr. Harper, who also serves as a consultant to the World Health Organization, further undercut the case for mass vaccination by saying that "four out of five women with cervical cancer are in developing countries." Ms. Robinson said she could not help but wonder, "If this is the case, then why vaccinate at all? But from the murmurs of the doctors in the audience, it was apparent that the same thought was occurring to them." However, at this point, Dr. Harper dropped an even bigger bombshell on the audience when she announced that, "There have been no efficacy trials in girls under 15 years." Merck, the manufacturer of Gardasil, studied only a small group of girls under 16 who had been vaccinated, but did not follow them long enough to conclude sufficient presence of effective HPV antibodies.This is not the first time Dr. Harper revealed the fact that Merck never tested Gardasil for safety in young girls. During a 2007 interview with KPC News.com, she said giving the vaccine to girls as young as 11 years-old "is a great big public health experiment."CLIP
President Obama declares national emergency over swine flu pandemic, but why?
Mike Adams NaturalNews October 24, 2009
According to the CDC, swine flu infections have already peaked, and the pandemic is on its way out. Peak infection time was the middle of October, where one in five U.S. children experienced the flu, says the CDC. Out of nearly 14,000 suspected flu cases tested during the week ending on October 10, 2009, 99.6% of those were influenza A, and the vast majority of those were confirmed as H1N1 swine flu infections. (http://www.cdc.gov/flu/weekly/)
Even though the H1N1 pandemic appears to have peaked out, U.S. President Barack Obama has now declared a national emergency over swine flu infections. The reasoning behind such a declaration? According to the White House, its designed to "allow hospitals to better handle the surge in patients" by allowing them to bypass certain federal laws.
Emergency powers trump the Bill of Rights
Thats the public explanation for this, but the real agenda behind this declaration may be far more sinister. Declaring a national emergency immediately gives federal authorities dangerous new powers that can now be enforced at gunpoint, including:
The power to force mandatory swine flu vaccinations on the entire population.
The power to arrest, quarantine or "involuntarily transport" anyone who refuses a swine flu vaccination.
The power to quarantine an entire city and halt all travel in or out of that city.
The power to enter any home or office without a search warrant and order the destruction of any belongings or structures deemed to be a threat to public health.
The effective nullification of the Bill of Rights. Your right to due process, to being safe from government search and seizure, and to remain silent to avoid self-incrimination are all null and void under a Presidential declaration of a national emergency.
None of this means that federal agents are going to march door to door arresting people at gunpoint if they refuse the vaccine, but they could if they wanted to. Your rights as an American are no longer recognized under this national emergency declaration.
The declaration of this national emergency seems suspicious from the start. Wheres the emergency? The number of people killed by swine flu in the United States is far smaller than the number of people killed each year from seasonal flu, according to CDC statistics. People obviously arent dropping dead by the millions from H1N1 influenza. Most people are just getting mild flu symptoms and a few days later theyre fine.
So wheres the emergency?
The only emergency I can see is the emergency fabricated by Big Pharma to sell more vaccines. By declaring a national emergency over the H1N1 pandemic, Obama is playing right into their hands.
I find the timing of all this curious. Two days ago, New York gave up on its efforts to require mandatory vaccinations of health care workers. This was designed to defuse a large number of planned protests from health freedom-conscious people who dont want government-mandated chemicals pumped into their veins.
The planned protests in New York would have fueled yet more resistance among health care workers across the country, and had it been allowed to continue, it could have resulted in a huge nationwide backlash against swine flu vaccines. By backing off the vaccine mandate and blaming it on a vaccine shortage (http://www.naturalnews.com/027313_New_York_health_care.html), and then having Obama declare a national emergency, our state and national leaders have halted the protests and put in place a pro-vaccine Big Brother mandate that can be enforced at gunpoint.
Big Pharma must be pleased with all this. With these emergency powers in place, all thats necessary to force vaccinations upon the entire population is a larger supply of the vaccines and thats coming in November.
Obamas National Emergency Violates the Constitution (October 26, 2009) http://www.infowars.com/obamas-national-emergency-violates-the-constitution/
Drew Zahn, writing for WorldNetDaily, takes issue with Infowars declaring Obamas national emergency amounts to martial law. An article by Kurt Nimmo of InfoWars took the worry a step further, wondering if the White Houses declaration engaged certain measures of the National Emergencies Act, writes Zahn. But even if there really is a plot to manipulate the H1N1 virus scare into enforcing a sweeping expansion of federal power, todays national emergency falls far short of martial law.Only the American people, through their representatives in Congress, can declare a national emergency. (...) Obamas national emergency in response to a pandemic that is nothing for the sort is another example of the executive wantonly violating the Constitution. It does not matter if the details of the so-called emergency declaration concern the bureaucratic operation of government. It is a violation of the principles our founders had in mind when they formulated our (now mostly moribund) constitutional republic. Only the American people, through their representatives in Congress, can declare a national emergency. MUCH MORE THERE (including pictures) if your scroll down...
What's Behind the False Flag Flu Emergency? (October 27, 2009) http://www.lewrockwell.com/sardi/sardi129.html
(...) But 1000 accumulated deaths would be far fewer than the mortality figures the Centers for Disease Control distributes estimated at 36,000 annual flu deaths. Federal health authorities lump pneumonia deaths among the elderly with flu-related deaths to falsely inflate flu mortality figures. My own guesstimate is that only about 6000 flu-related deaths actually occur each year, but even using this figure for comparison, this year's flu outbreak appears weak. An estimated 20,000 hospitalizations have been reported since this pandemic flu strain began in March of 2009, which amounts to only about 625 hospitalizations per week spread among more than 5 thousand hospitals.Earlier in the week CBS News reported that, five months after this unique strain of the flu had begun to spread in Mexico in March of 2009, the H1N1 pandemic flu strain only comprised 12% of the flu viruses in circulation by July. Yet there were massive preparations being made for a major flu pandemic without sufficient justification. Today the Centers for Disease Control says the H1N1 pandemic flu strain represents 99% of the flu cases that are typed laboratory confirmed. Just exactly which numbers are correct, if any, now come into question. According to CBS News, only 11 million doses of flu have been administered, with millions more to arrive late, sometime in mid-November. Time Magazine reports about 30 million available doses, so that could mean up to two-thirds of the currently available vaccine is going unused.
(...) An article in the Christian Science Monitor (ASM) was more concerned that such a contrived emergency could be a veiled way to overrun civil liberties. The ASM article quoted Harold Relyea, a specialist in national government with the Congressional Research Service, who said: "When the President formally declares a national emergency, he may seize property, organize and control the means of production, seize commodities, assign military forces abroad, institute martial law, seize and control all transportation and communication, regulate the operation of private enterprise, restrict travel and, in a variety of ways, control the lives of United States citizens." Few news sources were critical of the declared emergency, but expect more reporters to express skepticism over its need and to question its intent. An article in the New Hampshire Union Leader said: "But the way the U.S. government has been handling the new flu strain, technically named H1N1, has been less than reassuring." What to do now? Misdirection, overreaction and lack of preparedness by public health officials is a clear indication to the public that they cannot totally rely upon potentially problematic vaccines or anti-viral drugs to defend themselves against the flu. An ignored approach to controlling infectious disease is to address the immune status of the population. The public should utilize bona fide immune boosters such as vitamin D and vitamin C, and take nutrients that are documented to reduce the duration and severity of the disease which include vitamin E, the trace mineral selenium, the sulfur compound NAC, and elderberry. In 2005 researchers in Rome, Italy wondered what backup treatment could be used in the event vaccines were unavailable or were ineffective against a fast mutating flu virus that had developed resistance to vaccines or anti-viral drugs like Tamiflu or Relenza. Flu viruses require a host cell to replicate. The Italian researchers report that resveratrol, known as a red wine molecule, completely blocks entry of flu viruses into the cell nucleus in animals at a human equivalent dose of ~70 milligrams. [Journal Infectious Disease 2005 May 15; 191(10):171929] So the virus would enter the lungs, antibodies would still be generated to produce long-term immunity, but the virus could not duplicate into millions of daughter virions as it normally does. Resveratrol works on closing the cellular doorway rather than destroying the virus itself. Therefore it is a totally non-toxic approach to control of influenza viruses. Furthermore, resveratrol does not provoke viral resistance.In contrast, anti-viral drugs like oseltamivir (Tamiflu) allow viruses to enter cellular machinery to produce copies of the flu virus and then inhibits their exit from the cell via inhibition of the enzyme neuraminidase. So host cells are flooded with copies of the virus. This approach is not ideal as it can lead to drug-induced side effects which have been widely reported.
Where Are the Vaccine Pied Pipers Leading Us? (October 23, 2009) http://lewrockwell.com/sardi/sardi128.html
(...) So be good boys and girls and dont question the scientific elitists who tell you what is good for your children and what isnt. You are all like dumb uneducated people living in huts in some backward country. What could you possibly know anyway? Wired.com reporter Wallace says "the doubters and deniers are empowered by the Internet (online, nobody knows youre not a doctor) and helped by the mainstream media, which has an interest in pumping up bad science to create a "debate" where there should be none." Shall we let Wallace do all the thinking for us? After all, those who dont vaccinate their kids endanger all the rest of us, that is if you buy into what Amy Wallace says in her column entitled: "How Panicked Parents Skipping Shots Endangers Us All."Even researchers at the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta concede that "effectiveness of currently licensed vaccines in the United States is about 3050% in preventing complications arising from influenza and preventing death from all causes during winter months in older adults." [Current Topics Microbiology Immunology 2009;333:41329] If humanity totally relies upon ineffective vaccines, we are doomed to be vulnerable to every plague that passes by. What IS endangering us all is treatment for the flu. Flawed treatment appears to have caused most of the flu-related death over the past decades since the Spanish flu of 1918. In fact, it appears more flu deaths result from treatment than the disease itself. See here. The context of Wallaces column is the growing number of parents who arent submitting their children for flu vaccination this season. What Wallace fails to examine is that there is no strong evidence to show that vaccines prevent flu-related death. Yes, vaccines have saved lives, but the technology is archaic. It is 1798 cow pox know-how, first implemented by Dr. Edward Jenner. It has seen its day. Many of the vaccines wouldnt even be needed if the world had clean water, public hygiene, clean foods and better nutrition. Immunity is weak in the malnourished. Vaccines arent an appropriate answer to this problem. CLIP
Obamas H1N1 national emergency declaration could invoke FEMA response to pandemic
Mike Adams - Natural News - October 26, 2009
President Obamas declaration of a national pandemic emergency is no cause for alarm, reported the mainstream media throughout the weekend. The declaration is nothing more than a precaution, they say. Its really more a continuation of our preparedness steps, said Anne Schuchat, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Preventions National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, in a USA Today story.
In other words, theres not really any emergency at all. So why declare a national emergency in the first place? The media reports this was done to allow hospitals to bypass federal regulations concerning the setting up of large-scale triage sites emergency medical camps quickly constructed to deal with large numbers of sick people.
But at the same time, H1N1 isnt causing large-scale sickness. As USA Today reported, an expert on infectious disease, P.J. Brennan (the chief medical officer for the Penn Health System at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia) said, The public ought to take some solace, some relief in this. Its not a suggestion that things have deteriorated in any way. In no way is the virus more severe or more difficult to manage.
So let me get this straight. The H1N1 virus remains mild. The CDC reports that swine flu infections already peaked out in mid-October. There have been no new developments in swine flu that would be cause for alarm and no reason to suspect huge numbers of sick people flooding into the hospitals. And yet, for some reason, the Obama administration has declared a national pandemic emergency specifically for the purpose of speeding the ability of hospitals to process large masses of sick people through emergency medical triage tents?
What are these people not telling us?
Something doesnt add up here. Why would the U.S. government need to declare a national emergency to enable hospitals to handle a flood of sick people when there is no flood of sick people (and the pandemic seems to be fizzling out)?
This is more like the kind of preparation you might expect in advance of a biological terrorism attack, not for a flu that appears no more dangerous than the seasonal sniffles.
The National Emergencies Act and FEMA
Meanwhile, the media ignores the rest of the story about what dangerous powers a declaration of a national emergency puts into play. As reported here on NaturalNews, this declaration effectively ends many civil liberties in America and, at least on paper, puts the U.S. government in the position of having the legal authority to force vaccinations on the entire population at gunpoint (if they wanted to).
The National Emergencies Act passed in 1976 has some peculiar realities attached to it. In particular, as Wikipedia reports:
A federal emergency declaration allows the United States Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to exercise its power to deal with emergency situations Typically, a state of emergency empowers the executive to name coordinating officials to deal with the emergency and to override normal administrative processes regarding the passage of administrative rules.
Got that yet? By declaring a national emergency, Obama invokes a set of laws that not only override important sections of the U.S. Constitution, but that also activate FEMA to take charge of responding to the emergency.
Now we know why they need all those emergency medical tent camps near the hospitals. FEMAs in charge! And if FEMA handles the swine flu pandemic in the same way the agency handled the Hurricane Katrina disaster, we may indeed need all those emergency triage tents after all.
Those of you who have been following the ongoing march to destroy the freedoms of the American People already know about FEMA camps. These arent Boy Scout field trip camps; theyre detention centers designed to hold large numbers of people for emergency purposes. Many theories abound on what these FEMA camps might be used for (http://www.campFEMA.com) (http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=7763).
They could conceivably be used to quarantine people who are infected with a dangerous pandemic virus. On the other hand, they might also be used to isolated and detain people who refuse to be vaccinated against any declared pandemic. Under the National Emergencies Act and related U.S. law, FEMA would have two years of near-total control over the civilian population, during which people could be subjected to forced vaccinations, mandatory searches of their homes, gunpoint detainment and involuntary transportation to a FEMA detainment facility, and so on.
Im not saying theyre going to do all this, but they could if they wanted to!
And thats not freedom. Real freedom means you have the guaranteed right to be safe from being detained, or arrested without cause, or injected with a government-mandated chemical. Under a declaration of a national emergency, your freedom is at the whim of those who maintain police state powers over you. Youre only free if they decide to refrain from exercising the power they have over you. Its the same kind of freedom you might get as a peasant in some Medieval kingdom where the king says, Youre free to go.
Now, some of these freedom-restricting actions might conceivably be justifiable if a truly dangerous pandemic virus were sweeping through the population killing millions, causing huge disruptions in the national infrastructure and threatening the nation with a partial or total shutdown of essential services. But that is not happening here. H1N1 is a mild virus that rates astonishingly low on the severity scale. If H1N1 were a hurricane, it would be little more than a tropical depression. It is not a category five hurricane, nor a phase six pandemic. Virtually everyone who is exposed to H1N1 generates their own antibodies and cures themselves naturally. According to hospital reports, those who have died from the H1N1 virus are almost exclusively people who were already suffering from preexisting conditions that compromised their health such as asthma or extreme obesity.
By any measure, H1N1 as currently configured appears to present no extraordinary threat to the health of the population. So once again, we must ask: Why declare a national emergency and initiate a FEMA response to something thats not really an emergency?
Why Im concerned
For the first time in this whole pandemic situation, Im concerned. Not due to the virus itself, because thats a mild virus that presents no real threat to the population at large. Im concerned about what we dont know might be going on behind the scenes here.
These preparations for large-scale medical triage tents and the emergency activation of FEMA have me worried that the American people arent being told the whole story. Perhaps a terrorist organization is planning on releasing a wildly dangerous mutation of H1N1 in some major U.S. city. Or perhaps some vaccine maker is, in fact, that terrorist organization. (The best way to sell more vaccines would be to release a mutated form of H1N1 into the population and scare up some more sales )
Or maybe, as some creative thinkers have suggested, the vaccine itself IS a bioweapon, and the U.S. government is preparation for large-scale fatalities it expects to see soon.
Or maybe these are just fleeting, dark visions from crazy people, and the U.S. government is a benevolent organization with all our best interests in mind, and theyre jumping through these bureaucratic hoops to make sure there are plenty of hospital beds to go round just in case more people get really sick.
But even that explanation doesnt hold water. A national emergency declaration isnt necessary to waive hospital tent rules. Obama could have easily accomplished the same thing with an Executive Order, without having to invoke the National Emergencies Act or put FEMA in charge at all.
He chose the emergency declaration for a specific reason. I guess well all have to wait and see what that real reason turns out to be.
Boston launches flu shot tracking (November 21, 2008) THEY BETA-TESTED THOSE BRACELETS LAST YEAR http://www.boston.com/news/local/massachusetts/articles/2008/11/21/boston_launches_flu_shot_tracking/?page=full
Using technology originally developed for mass disasters, Boston disease trackers are embarking on a novel experiment - one of the first in the country - aimed at eventually creating a citywide registry of everyone who has had a flu vaccination.The resulting vaccination map would allow swift intervention in neighborhoods left vulnerable to the fast-moving respiratory illness. The trial starts this afternoon, when several hundred people are expected to queue up for immunizations at the headquarters of the Boston Public Health Commission. Each of them will get a bracelet printed with a unique identifier code. Information about the vaccine's recipients, and the shot, will be entered into hand-held devices similar to those used by delivery truck drivers. Infectious disease specialists in Boston and elsewhere predicted that the registry approach could prove even more useful if something more sinister strikes: a bioterrorism attack or the long-feared arrival of a global flu epidemic. In such crises, the registry could be used to track who received a special vaccine or antidote to a deadly germ. - IF YOU HAVE NOT YET WATCHED THIS VIDEO ABOUT THE RFID WRISTBANDS THAT COULD BE USED INSTEAD

Nurses Got Sick From the Swine Flu Vaccine in Sweden - UPDATE Adverse Reactions 1 Suspected Death
Yesterday 30 people had been reporting to the authorities in Sweden that they experienced such severe side effects that they felt the need to contact a hospital. Today the number is 140. The swedish newspaper Expressen is the only one in Sweden reporting on these cases and as usual this is most likely only the tip of a rather large iceberg. UPDATE: According to Dagens Nyheter, the number of reported side effects are now a few hours later 190. 1 person dies after the injection but no direct relation with the injection has been established. The biggest medical scandal in the history of Sweden has just started.
Even so, Annika Linde, director of The Swedish Institute for Infectious Disease Control (SMI) manages to spin this into something positive by stating The vaccine has more side effects than the normal flu vaccine. It is a sign that proves that it gives an effective protection.
Thousands of Swedes have been vaccinated so far and the reports of side effects are flooding in to The Swedish Institute for Infectious Disease Control (SMI). Annika Linde: It is obviously so that the vaccine against the swine flu results in more side effects than the normal flu vaccines. That is because the swine flu vaccine contains adjuvants, shark liver oil, which triggers the immune defense to respond. That also results in that the protection against the virus becomes better.
Several severe cases of allergic reactions are reported to the unit for medicinal safety. So far the reported side effects are not unexpected, says Gunilla Sjölin Forsberg. This unit has now asked some of the many units that vaccinate to report side effects to better get a grip on the situation. This statement alone is shocking since according to normal practice, all side effects should automatically be reported - right?
A nurse who took the shot on Wednesday last week is still feeling sick. She got high fever and shivers from the swine flu shot. -I was shaking in my whole body. It was so sever that I could not even hold a glass of water in my hand., Lotta Lindström says.
- I am now thinking about what it is I have been injected with. I really was affected. It feels really unpleasant.
Maria Strindlund is not so sure she made the right choice to tae the shot. She also got a severe fever and shivering reaction. - Since I work as a nurse, I decided it was the best thing to do., she says. At first she felt nothing from the vaccination, but a few hours later the side effects kicked in. - I got a extreme pain in my arm. I could no longer lift it. The came the fever and the shivering. _ I was lying in bed shivering and was feeling very cold and stood in a hot shower to get warm. She says many colleagues who also took the vaccine have had similar reactions. She has been taking many vaccines in the past without any reactions whatsoever.
Maria, 27: - Hälsa - Expressen.se
Rebecka Andersson was the first person to get the shot in Sweden. She became feverish and felt sick to her stomach from the shot. - I lost all energy, she says. -I am normally never sick so I understood it must be the vaccine. Her class mates was vaccinated at the same time and she states that five out of nineteen also got sick from the swine flu vaccine.
Lotta Lindström, a nurse, states that she got the shot a week ago and still is not well. - It feels very worrying, she says. - I did not sleep anything the night after the shot since the pain in my arm was so severe. The day after, at work, the fever came. She later had headaches. She still today, a week after the shot feels sick. Another nurse, Jennely, could hardly walk five meters after she got sick from the swine flu vaccination. She was completely healthy when she got the shot but the day after she had 39 degrees centigrade fever (102.2 F). - I could hardly walk the five meters I had to the bathroom, she says. The fever lasted for three days. several of her colleagues at work had similar experiences. - I know of at least ten that got fever , we are about 80 people at my workplace.

V.V. on October 23rd, 2009
Im very sorry for these nurses and others whove gotten sick from the vaccine. Im shocked and appalled that the vaccines used in Sweden contain squalene, as well as mercury. Squalene has been linked to the Gulf War Syndrome and is known to cause severe auto-immune disease in lab rats. This is not only irresponsible but criminal on the part of the government and the vaccine manufacturers!
Erwin Alber on October 23rd, 2009
It may sound callous, but the news from Sweden about numerous side-effects is good news as far as I am concerned, because the more people fall seriously ill or drop dead early in the piece, the sooner this dreadful farce of a vaccinaton programme may grind to a halt, before it causes damage on even a much more massive scale. Lets hope that he experience of these unfortunate Swedish guinea pigs will put an end to this nonsense not only in Sweden, but also in the rest of the world.
amicus curiae on October 23rd, 2009
I wonder What Brand? our Incompetent friends at Baxter? the ones that confused LIVE H5N1 with seasonal vaccine in January? 72 kg of that mistake?? was shipped to many labs. And did someone forget to tell these poor ladies that the CDC and WHO have said any deaths and unusual illness after a vaccination is just a coincidence? See NYTimes for that stupid statement! WHO has a PDF that mentions the uncertainty of oil in water/water in oil ie squalene! but doesnt ban it! and it admits to Viral shedding from attenuated live vaccines being likely, but ok in a declared pandemic!
Sandy L on October 23rd, 2009
Many may get serious side effects: The official approval institution EMEA states that the number is unknown. The vaccine manufacturer says the same. Norwegian health authorities state 1 per million or extremely rare, but they have no reason whatsoever to state this. The number who get serious side effects is not known to anyone, which is one reason why the manufacturer refuses to take responsibility for the vaccine.
Stan on October 24th, 2009
They use Pandemrix(with tiomersal and squalene), from GlaxoSmithKlein here in Sweden. The vaccinations started about 10 days ago, starting with risk groups, now 3 persons have died within 4 days after having the shot. 2 people have died from swine flu, both with undelying illnesses.
Mare on October 24th, 2009 5:40 pm
When are people going to wake up and stop trusting government agencies that have a financial stake in these pharmaceuticals? Why would anyone in their right mind blindly turn their body over for someone to inject a vaccine that most people dont have a clue whats in it! Why would they do that? It baffles me that anyone can be that gullible.
Its YOUR body, YOU have to take responsibility for how you treat it ..not someone else who has no interest in whether you live or die!
Wake up people!
FOURTH PERSON DIES IN SWEDEN FROM SWINE FLU JAB: NO END IN SIGHT (24 October 2009) http://www.theflucase.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=1353%3Afourth-person-dies-in-sweden-from-swine-flu-jab-no-end-in-sight-&catid=41%3Ahighlighted-news&Itemid=105&lang=en
The news that a fourth person has died after taking the "swine flu" jab in Sweden is focusing attention on the failure of the Swedish Medical Products Agency (MPA) to halt the "swine flu" programme even as reports of serious side effects flood in.The Swedish drug regulator has allowed the "swine flu" jab campaign to be launched even though there is no safety or efficacy data on the vaccine. GlaxoSmithKline's Pandemrix with mercury and squalene has been given approval under new and lax European Union regulations formulated by the European Medicines Agency, (EMEA) for a "pandemic emergency" that do not require safety or efficacy data. The EMEA derives three-quarters of its funding from pharmaceutical companies. The "swine flu" jab has been authorised for use only on condition that governments and companies implement "post-authorisation" studies to check it is safe and effective. However, the MPA in Sweden appears to have limited its role in collecting data on death and damage to spontaneous reports from doctors and patients. CLIP
FIFTH "SWINE FLU" VACCINE DEATH IN SWEDEN - VACCINATIONS STILL GO AHEAD AS PLANNED! (27 October 2009) http://www.theflucase.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=1416%3Afifth-qswine-fluq-vaccine-death-in-sweden-vaccinations-still-go-ahead-as-planned&catid=41%3Ahighlighted-news&Itemid=105&lang=en
Media in Sweden is having a tough time maintaining the propaganda as more and more people question the reasons for the mass vaccination. Now, authorities say that if not "80% of the population takes the shot, we risk 100 deaths from the swine flu". Most Swedes know that a normal flu season see several thousand dead from complications from the seasonal flu so the proportions of the propaganda coming from media and the government has caused a growing revolt against the massive attempts to scare people to take the poisonous injection.We have earlier reported on the first death, the second death (also here), the third death and the fourth death in Sweden from the poisonous Pandemrix vaccin shot.Today, Svenska Dagbladet reports that over 350 cases of side effects from the Pandemrix "swine flu" shot, has been recorded so far. It has also become clear that this shot contains the most deadly mix of substances of all the known vaccines manufactured against the so called "swine flu" H1N1 influenza. The official number of deaths from the "swine flu" vaccine is now five. And that is only those who have strong immediate reactions, the long term effects are usually never even investigated. If you would die from the shot two weeks after you took it, your death would not be considered to have anything to do with the vaccination. Severe health problems years after will of course be very hard to link to the poisonous injection. Even if these five official cases died within days, the official story is of course as expected: "none of these deaths has been confirmed to be linked to the vaccine". CLIP

The Pharmaceutical Industrial Complex: A Deadly Fairy Tale
by Dr. Doug Henderson and Dr. Gary Null
Global Research, October 21, 2009
It has been a particularly bad month for the pharmaceutical industrial complex in its ongoing litigations in American courts. Among the main pharmaceutical headlines, Mercks Gardasil vaccine for HPV, now being widely administered to pre-teens, was found to be linked to amyltrophic lateral sclerosis, commonly known as Lou Gehrigs disease; following a $1.4 billion fine in promoting one of its blockbuster drugs Zyprexa off-label, deceptive correspondence was uncovered by Eli Lilly gaming the system again by promoting another one of its drugs, Cymbalta, off-label for fibromyalgia; AstraZeneca was fined $160 million for scamming the Medicaid system in Kentucky after being fined $215 million for ripping off Alabama; Glaxo lost a Pennsylvania trial for failing to warn doctors and pregnant women of the dangers of its antidepressant drug Paxil related to birth defects; and Pfizer scored a record-breaking fine of $2.3 billion for illegally marketing several drugs over the years: Bextra, Zyvox, Geodon and Lyrica. These kinds of charges, among the many others, have become a habit for drug makers for the past dozen years.
When we speak of the pharmaceutical industry complex, it does not refer solely to private drug manufacturers. The complex, like a Matrix that holds captive the health of the nation in medical slavery by its own design and manipulation, is a consortium, a spiders web woven with financial attachments throughout the medical profession. In addition to the pharmaceutical and medical device firms, this complex includes every government health agencythe Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and or course the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)as well as drug lobbying firms now employing a large number of former Congresspersons, insurance and HMO companies, all of the leading professional medical associations such as the American Medical Association (AMA) and the American Psychiatric Association (APA), the majority of medical schools and their research departments who are heavily funded by drug money, many of the most prestigious medical journals, and ultimately all of this filtering downward to the physicians who diagnose our illnesses and prescribe our medications and treatments.
America is rightly regarded as having led much of the world in many qualitative innovations in all fields. That reputation is duly deserved. However, there is a new dynamic at work that is causing this reputation to be challenged. We are a nation that prides itself in our humanity, our sense of fairness, but today there is a growing concern that we are now being monikered as a country held hostage to a national security complex, which includes the largest military complex in the world, an obscenely expensive healthcare system and self-serving bureaucracies and private industries that serve their own financial ends. So it is not surprising that after spending this year $2.6 trillion on healthcare, we have such little health to show for it. There are second world countries where people live longer and healthier lives. And we have the worst healthcare among developed nations. So what have we received for our $2.6 trillion.
As the current healthcare debate continues to rage over in sundriesthe $200 billion net profit health insurance industrythe entire deliberation over disease prevention and treatment has been overshadowed. And amidst this partisan and ideological anarchy, perpetuated by our elected officials, the media, and fueled by the pharmaceutical complex, two other areas America excels as a leader above all other developed nations is in being the premier breeding ground for the pharmaceutical industrial complexs greatest profits and, second, as the worlds exemplar in medical fraud and corruption. The fairy tale of Americas health as being best served by drugs is a creation of this complex, a lullaby that brings ill citizens repeatedly to their doctors and hospitals for diagnosis and treatment, or simply to deny healthcare altogether to the uninsured.
The country is pacified by a blind belief that the drugs being prescribed to them have been proven safe because our government health agencies have our physical health and well-being in their best intentions. This is a lie, an extraordinarily deadly lie. Iatrogenesis, medically induced injury and death, is the number one cause of death in American medicine annually, since only a small percentage of these deaths are actually reported. Each year more Americans die from preventable deaths due to our medical system than all military causalities in the two world wars combined. This is tantamount to medical genocide. One of the major causes of these deaths is the overmedication of Americans in all ages. The constant need for profits has created an environment that allows the pharmaceutical industrial complex to use their enormous financial and political clout to literally make normal life experiences into new diseases, such as social anxiety disorder, in order to sell its drugs. The pharmaceutical industry has been given the authority to pathologize life, with the drugging of our children, seniors, etc. For example, the leading cause of AIDS deaths today is a result of liver failure. This is not a condition of HIV infection, but a direct result of the anti-HIV drug AZT. Is it little wonder then that we are being intimidated and frightened into believing that mandatory vaccination is being touted even though the science of efficacy and safety, even the need, for these new swine flu vaccines is patently unproven. It is perhaps one of the largest falsehoods ever perpetuated on humanity that dwarfs the sleaze on Wall Street.
If any one of us committed manslaughter, we would be behind bars instead of walking a crimson carpet into the offices of our elected officials in the Congress and Senate or past the gates guarded by the nations Cerberus, Rahm Emmanuel, to lobby the White House. Yet if we are a pharmaceutical executive, or a lobbyist representing a drug company who has collected a litany of charges including medical fraud, criminal salesmanship, gaming the insurance industries, repeated lying to federal officials, and manipulation of data regarding life-threatening adverse effects of drugs that have killed so many people, we can walk away with a fine, a surge in the stock market after a settlement, a financial bonus, and the personal satisfaction in not having to apologize so we can continue business as usual. This is the power the pharmaceutical industrial complex possesses and its usurped right to distain every noble principle in the Hippocratic Oath that every physician dedicates her or himself to live by, That I will exercise my art solely for the cure of my patients, and will give no drug and perform no operation for a criminal purpose.
Every American who is prescribed a drug by a physician has the belief that that pill has undergone rigorous trials to scrutinize its safety. And when there are known potential adverse effects, we blindly assume these are known to the attending physician. However, this is a myth perpetuated not only by drug makers, but by our own federal health agencies. A 2003 investigation published in The Independent in the UK reported that under pressure from the pharmaceutical industry, the FDA routinely conceals information it considers commercially sensitive, leaving medical specialists unable to assess the true risks [of approved drugs]. One case involved a very popular over-the-counter drug, the painkiller ibuprofen. The investigators search uncovered concealed data showing that ibuprofen increased heart attack risks by 25 percent. Even Freedom of Information (FOI) filings to the FDA do not produce all the information being requested. For example, a group of Swiss investigators filed an FOI to procure trial data about the musculoskeletal pain drug Celecoxib and received back only 16 of the 27 trials conducted on it. A separate FOI concerning a similar drug, Valdecoxib, had pages and paragraphs deleted because sections of the document were marked as trade secrets. An even worse case involving a leaked report concerning internal memos and secret FDA reports provided detailed evidence that the FDA approved 9 different antidepressants, representing a total of 22 studies enrolling 4,250 children, while knowing full well that the risk of suicide-related events was twice as high as children taking a placebo. These are just several examples among numerous others.
The pharmaceutical industrial complex is perhaps the largest, most influential cartel in the world. This becomes evident after considering the billions of dollars and other currencies drug companies have been forced to pay for a wide variety of corruption charges. Our analysis of 724 legal settlements from a random sampling among the over one hundred thousand by pharmaceutical corporations totally $87 billion is just a small indication about how pervasive Big Pharmas criminality since the vast majority of settlements are concluded outside of court and remain confidential.
It is extremely difficult to comprehend why the United States principle federal health agencies, particularly the FDA and National Institutes of Health (NIH), with the specific mandate to provide oversight on all pre-approved drug applications and delegated with the task to assure drugs are safe or at least specify clearly their known dangers, are so reprehensible and inept. There is only one rational answer and that is the pharmaceutical industry is the FDAs largest client, and this relationship goes much deeper than the FDA functioning as an objective regulator investigating pharmaceutical products before being released upon the American population. It is not to far afield to suggest that as it stands now the US regulatory agencies are an extension of corporate America.
As serial offenders of product safety cover-ups for over a decade, drugs have injured and killed millions. In the case Mercks Vioxx, this one drug has killed 44,000 people and injured 120,000 others. Only in America could you kill 44,000 and not go to jail and get a raise. Should we assume, therefore, that the pharmaceutical complex should be trusted without challenge? We have also been asked to believe that the manufacturers were guided by a sense of public service. But when examining the top ten drugs sold, the facts reveal otherwise. In one example, manufacturers marked up a drug an astounding 500,000% over its equivalent generic version. Six other drugs were marked up 2000%. Pharmaceutical companies make profits higher than oil companies.
Big Pharmas impact is felt almost everywhere. But nowhere is it felt more than in the legal system. In a recently concluded, short-term study, we found 724 cases involving Big Pharma in which either the case ended in a verdict against the pharmaceutical company or the company settled. The number of cases is staggering, as are the dollar amounts. These cases cover practically every type of civil and criminal case. From products that kill, harm and maim, to false claims, to not paying taxes, to patent infringements, to bribery, to publishing false scientific journals. Yet, in spite of the tens of thousands of lawsuits won against Big Pharma, it still conducts business as usual.
Eli Lilly flooded state Medicaid programs with Zyprexa: its superstar, antipsychotic drug. In 2003, worldwide sales of Zyprexa grossed $4.28 billion, amounting to almost one third of Lillys total sales. In the United States, during the same year, Zyprexa grossed $2.63 billion. A whopping 70 percent of these sales were directly related to government agenciesprincipally Medicaid. Fast-forward six years to 2009, Eli Lilly pleaded guilty for having illegally marketed Zyprexa for an unapproved use to treat dementia, and will pay $1.42 billion to settle civil suits and end the criminal investigation. Lilly agreed to pay $800 million to settle civil suits. It will pay $615 million to resolve the criminal probe, and plead guilty to a misdemeanor in violation of the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act for promoting Zyprexa as a dementia treatment.
Did Lilly also know of the possibility that Zyprexa could cause diabetes, which was also kept concealed under the protection of the FDA? They most certainly did, which makes their behavior all the more reprehensible. In 2002, British and Japanese regulatory agencies issued a warning that Zyprexa may cause diabetes. In addition, even after the FDA issued a similar warning in 2003, Lilly did not pull Zyprexa from the market. This becomes all the more understandable after it is taken into consideration that Lilly is also the largest maker of diabetes medications.
An article by Mike Adams, the Natural News editor, states that Merck employees had a hit list of doctors they sought to neutralize. This allegation was confirmed when documents that had been secret were revealed during a Vioxx court case. The Australian revealed that the documents surfaced in the Federal Court in Melbourne and exposed the criminal intent of Merck employees who admitted they were going to stop funding to institutions and interfere with academic appointments. One Merck employee testified (about the doctors on the hit list), We may need to seek them out and destroy them where they live. Merck threatened or intimidated at least eight clinical investigators, testimony in court revealed. There are other, similar stories in which Merck deals with dissent by attempting to destroy the lives and careers of academics who dont review their drugs favorably.
Merck is steeped in a well-documented record of criminality. Such actions include, but are not limited to, intentionally hiding the liver-damaging effects of its cholesterol drug, intentionally withholding the release of clinical data that revealed the failures of another cholesterol drug; it has dumped vaccine waste and manufacturing chemicals into water supplies; it opened up offshore banking accounts to avoid paying billions of dollars in U.S. taxes, and it was caught in a huge scheme of scientific fraud when it was discovered that the company used in-house writers to secretly write so-called independent studies that were published in peer-reviewed medical journals.
Under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, which the U.S. Department of Justice and the SEC enforce, it is illegal to bribe a foreign government official in order to obtain or retain business. Apparently, Bristol-Myers and Schering Plough were unaware of this law. According to the Associated Press, both drug makers were engaged in influencing government officials in Germany and Poland respectively.
Earlier this year, an article in the Boston Business Journal reported that a former drug company sales executive pleaded guilty in Boston federal court to telling the roughly 100 representatives she supervised that they should promote a pain drug for uses she knew had been rejected by the FDA. Bextra was the drug she pleaded guilty to inappropriately selling. Pfizer has since pulled it from the market. According to a press release from U.S. Attorney Michael Sullivan's office, Holloway was aware of the FDA's safety concerns, but...she nonetheless had her sales staff of approximately 100 employees sells Bextra for precisely the uses that the FDA refused to approve.
The pharmaceutical complex has also infiltrated the majority of American medical schools and medical research departments. A recent survey in the Journal of the American Medical Association discovered that 60% of academic department chairs have personal ties to industry (as consultants, board members, or paid speakers), while 66% of the academic departments had institutional ties to industry. Researchers who receive funding from drug and medical-device manufacturers are up to 3.5 times as likely to state their study drug or medical device works than are researchers without such funding.
In America, one can hardly turn on the television or pick up a newspaper without reading about the hot button issue of health care reform. Why such emotion? Why are, seemingly, rational people so intransigent and unwilling to budge from their positions? Could lobbyists have anything to do with this? According to OpenSecrets.org, there are 3093 lobbyists in the health field and Big Pharma now spends approximately $1.2 million daily to persuade Congress to act according to their script. An investigation conducted by Medical Verdicts & Law Weekly found that 30 key lawmakers are involved in health legislation totaling $11 million in health investments. Three of every four major health firms have at least one lobbyist who worked for a congressman. Startlingly, nine lobbyists employed by Big Pharma are former congressional staffers who are still well-connected to Capitol Hill. The conflicts of interest are everywhere. Judd Gregg (R-NH), the Obama nominee for Commerce Secretary, who withdrew because of opposition to the Administration's agenda, is a senior member of the Health Committee. He revealed that he has $254,000-$560,000 in health stocks."
In 2000, Mylan Labs settled a case for $100 million. What the numbers dont tell you is the story behind the numbers. In 1998, Mylan raised the wholesale price of clorazepate, a generic tranquilizer, to $377.00 (for 500 tablets) from $11.36 in one year. This represents a 3000% increase on a generic drug.
It was subsequently revealed that Mylan conspired with the main manufacturer of the active, indispensable ingredient to have an exclusive agreement. The agreement prevented any other manufacturers from producing the drug, for without the active ingredient, the drug could not be made. Mylans deception was uncovered and it had to pay $100 million to settle an FTC antitrust case. But Mylan represents only an infinitesimal percentage of such examples. In all likelihood, the vast majority of similar cases remain undetected. The FDAs under-regulation and erroneous oversight encourages this type of corruption.
Another case included in our study states, TAP [Taketa-Abbott Pharmaceutical] Pharmaceutical Products Inc. -- $875,000,000 under the False Claims Act. TAP agreed to pay $875 million to resolve criminal charges and civil liabilities in connection with its fraudulent drug pricing and marketing conduct regarding the drug Lupron, according to a press release from the Department of Justice. Lupron is used by male cancer patients to suppress the production of testosterone. Another drug worked as well, so to make Lupron the drug of choice for this condition, TAP played dirty by giving kickbacks to physicians prescribing the drug, thus ensuring its ridiculously high price would be maintained. Even though criminal indictments were filed against TAP Pharmaceutical officials, Luprons price remains overly inflated.
Ever wonder why Big Pharma would engage in all manner of illegal activity? In light of the steady stream of articles detailing how the elderly are oftentimes forced to choose between purchasing their medication and buying food, a good place to begin is to examine what it costs to make a drug and what Big Pharma sells it for. Life Extension magazine conducted an original investigative report in which it compared the actual price of a popular drug and how much the generic version of its active ingredients costs. Examine these figures:
WHAT DRUGS REALLY COST
BRAND NAME CONSUMER PRICE COST OF GENERIC ACTIVE INGREDIENT PERCENT MARKUP
(For 100 tabs/caps) (For 100 tabs/caps)
In order to understand how we can spend 2.6 trillion this year on healthcare, but not reduce the incidence of cancer, heart disease, diabetes, obesity, mental conditions, arthritis, etc., we must realize this is a game. With each piece of the puzzle, feeding into a single picture of a massively corrupt, unethical, and frequently illegal system controlled by relatively few corporations within the pharmaceutical complex and the health insurance industry, are the ring leaders. They in turn influence thousands of lobbyists, paid-off scientists and academicians, and policymakers, especially those who rule on important health oversight committees. Health officials and legislators in turn solicit expert witnesses, preselected by the cartels, to position their drug agendas in the most favorable manner. The pharmaceutical cartel also has direct connections with its supporting scientific advisory boards and key foundations. These foundations, supported by policy think tanks who supply the so-called independent experts, then lobby the upper echelon within the FDA, NIH, CDC, NIMH, HHS. Ideally they hire former health commissioners and legislators previously players in the game to assist those same federal agencies to see their drugs guided through the regulatory process. Public relations and advertizing firms are contracted to give the public impression that these drugs are effective and safe for the sole reason they have received official licensing. In addition, the cartel creates front organizations with consumer-friendly titles whose representatives appear at national conferences and seminars beholden to special drug interests. Finally, the drug corporations set money aside to be paid out in settlements. With the exception of class action suits, the majority of cases for injury and death are accompanied by confidentiality clauses to prevent public disclosure of data the companies wish to remain secret.
This is how the medical system is rigged and it is why we can watch 60 Minutes or read the New York Times serving as pharmaceutical shills to encourage vaccination, yet refusing to air or print the dissenting voices who have the scientific evidence to show it is a massive fraud. Therefore, the public is misled every step of the way. Victims of injury, such as the tens of thousands of children, now at 1 in 91 children, with autism spectrum disorder, are forced to fend for themselves. Parents know far better than the FDA and CDC, when their perfectly normal child after a vaccination or a series of vaccines shortly thereafter is lost, withdrawn into the dark corners of autism. And yet the pediatrician and psychologist will say the child must have had a genetic defect. The CDC, FDA and NIH, with an orchestrated voice, say it is not the vaccine. Everyone within the pharmaceutical industrial complex denies the truth. Only now, during the healthcare debate, are we seeing clearly the rampant politics of the pharmaceutical and insurance industries. The veils are finally being removed. If it were not for the healthcare debacle, we might still not know how the game is rigged and why our politicians and health officials will not tolerate any real reform and accountability at any level.
If we want to clean up American medicine, the corporate shield must be removed and politicians, health officials and pharmaceutical executives must be held accountable. If they are threatened with jail time for manslaughter by pushing dangerous drugs, then we will see less life-threatening drugs go to market.
We are in a perfect storm without a life raft. We much take back our freedoms of choice and demand legal accountability or nothing will change.

Are Vaccines Safe? Bracing Ourselves for More Sham Vaccine Studies (October 14, 2009) http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=15669
When we hear official reports released by the FDA and CDC, transmitted throughout major corporate media outlets and publications, that a particular vaccine is safe, we should immediately perk to attention, raise a red flag, and muster rational suspicion. One of the most important questions is, what kind of studies are performed to determine that any vaccine is safe? And what evidence is there that vaccines are especially safe in infants, small children, pregnant mothers, the elderly, and those with asthma and compromised immune systems? According to the statutes of the FDAs Public Health Service Act, vaccine manufacturers are required to prove a vaccine complies with three criteria before approval and launch: safety, purity and potency. There are no requirements before FDA approval and licensing that a vaccine undergoes independent studies by researchers with no vested financial interests and industry ties in order to validate a vaccine makers claims. Rather, the entire approval process is nothing more than a good-faith relationship between the vaccine industrial complex and the FDA and the CDCs Advisory Committee on Immunization Practice (ACID), the primary entity determining vaccine policies. In an interview with Dr. Tom Jefferson, one of the worlds most knowledgeable experts in vaccine research and head of the Vaccine Field Group at the Cochrane Database Collaboration, the Financial Times reported that he found less than two dozen studies on the current H1N1 flu vaccine and none have a completion date before December 2010. Moreover there is no knowledge whatsoever that these vaccines are safe.
(...) The American public has every reason to be suspicious over our health officials vaccination claims and to hold them in distrust and even contempt. Citizens confidence in the swine flu vaccines safety has dropped with 72 percent reporting in a recent Associated Press-GFK poll they are worried about the vaccines side effects. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Secretary Sebelius should also be worried. Our tax dollars are spending approximately $3 billion on the entire pandemic swine flu vaccine story. But our distrust should not be based on the incestuous romance between government and the vaccine industry, although this surely exists. Instead, the policy decisions being ruled by our national Advisory Committee on Immunization Practice rely on exceptionally bad science. This is what should alarm us because it undermines the very foundation of medicine as an art to prevent disease, pain and suffering. So to our health bureaucrats, Its the science, stupid!
(...) While the NIAID study on the H1N1 vaccines safety for persons suffering with asthma will enroll only 350-400 individuals, an earlier Canadian survey of 134,000 people found 80 percent were more likely to experience exacerbations requiring the use of inhalers and nebulizers than unvaccinated controls. Another study published in The Lancet, one of the few placebo controlled studies in influenza vaccine research, discovered that pulmonary-function abnormalities may occur as a complication of influenza vaccination.
(...) Fortunately for the Department of Human Health and Services, Americans are still more dim-witted than their European neighbors when it comes to scrutinizing products coming off industrial assembly lines, especially vaccines and pharmaceutical drugs. It proves the high effectiveness of the vaccine industrial complexs marketing schemes through our government and corporate media. At this moment, health care professionals in the UK are increasingly spurning the H1N1 vaccine. Some hospitals are showing as low as 10 percent of staff and 10 percent of doctors willing to get vaccinated. The primary complaint is the vaccine is no good and you shouldnt be bothered with it. The French government is struggling to find doctors to administer the flu jab. A recent poll in Sweden has more than half of its citizens refusing the shot, and anti-swine flu vaccination protests are erupting in New Zealand. The German health ministry is in a quandary. This week, physicians and advisors of the German military have declared soldiers should not be given the approved vaccines with the mercury preservative and the adjuvant squalene. Consequently, the German public is growing more skeptical by the day over H1N1 vaccines safety. Yet here in the US, the sheeple are glued to the theatrics of the ever popular Dr. Oz rolling up his sleeve for a swine flu vaccination and offering his studio audience to fanfare applause their very own free injection of some toxic solution whose effects are unknown. But then Dr. Oz during a separate interview on CNN stated his four children and wife will not receive it. Pregnant women are now being listed as a high priority for swine flu inoculation. Yet the product inserts so far from the package inserts state the disclaimer: Animal reproduction studies have not been conducted with influenza virus vaccine. It is also not known whether influenza virus vaccine can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman.By their own admission, the vaccine industrial complex has not even performed clinical studies on pregnant animals, let alone pregnant humans!
(...) If your physician or nurse intentionally injected you with lead, they would go to jail and rightly so. As every civilized government in the world knows, lead is neurotoxic to the brain. There is no controversy about this. The controversy is when public health officials insist that a pregnant woman or a young child receive an annual influenza vaccine and a swine flu vaccine containing 25 mcg of mercury each, a level that is deadly to the brains neuron cells Mercury is more toxic than lead. It is unfathomable, therefore, how the same doctor, as well as all of our government health officials, would never suggest you be injected with lead, but can turn around and insist you be injected with mercury, knowing full well that your blood will carry that thimerosal past the blood-brain barrier and potentially cause neurological damage. Furthermore, we have an epidemic of autism in the US and other developmental and learning disabilities in children. We have never experienced this in our history prior to the introduction of large numbers of vaccines going into the children of America. There are no long-term double-blind, controlled placebo studies for any of the pharmaceutical industrys vaccines nor are there any studies to determine what interactions might occur from the interaction of other vaccines when in the presence of the new swine flu and/or seasonal vaccines. Such studies dont exist. The CDC and HHS cannot prove that if you did not get infected with the flu it is because you were vaccinated. And yet they have gone to the extreme in demanding and legislating that the vaccine industrial complex be subsidized, given waivers and indemnified from any and all lawsuits. Consequently, if there should be large numbers of serious adverse reactions and deaths, no one will be held accountable. In a society that prides itself in democratic principles and free choice, our health officials are denying that very same free choice by implementing mandatory vaccine policies. This is not the Hippocratic Oath. This is medical fascism.
The Public Relations Machine for the Vaccine Complex - the role of the CDC (October 8, 2009) http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=15585
One hard lesson we should have learned after Wall Streets collapse and the governments handling of the bailout is that there is no reason, whatsoever, for us to sacrifice our good faith and trust in former bankers who now run the Treasury and Federal Reserve. And now as the flu season gets ready to kick off amidst much fanfare and predictions of doom due to a new H1N1 influenza virus, there is emerging sufficient information to raise very serious doubts whether our nations health authorities are truly serving the public health instead of commercial interests. If the flu season goes according to schedule, the vaccine industrial complex will be poised to join Wall Street for record year rip-off profits. We will also likely witness huge Pharma executive bonuses and perhaps gold-plated toilets. Even if the CDC statisticians crystal ball used to forecast rampant swine flu infections turns into a complete bustwhich would only be one more added to many other failed flu predictions back to 1976it will nevertheless be a very profitable failure as was the economic collapse for the banking cartel. The vaccine industry has now received orders in the range of 3 billion doses during the course of the coming flu season. The World Health Organization would like to vaccinate two thirds (4 billion) of the global community, and the US alone is spending $2 billion to stockpile the nation with upwards to 250 million doses. In the US, such profits could never be accomplished without a dynamic, marketing initiative to convince Americans that vaccines will keep them protected and alive. And what better public relations machine for the vaccine complex, and all its supporters in health insurance and professional medical institutions, than our very own Centers for Disease Control and the Department of Health and Human Services. Even better, our tax dollars are there to pay for it all. We pay for the comfort in knowing that the CDCs disinformation campaign will continue to scare us over the major networks and the New York Times. We can also assure vaccine makers that once and for all they are protected from liability in the event of serious flu vaccine injuries.Nevertheless, the government has a lot of vaccine vials to distribute, therefore, the CDC needs to sustain the fiction of numerous elderly dying in nursing homes, unvaccinated pregnant moms and children facing life threatening complications, and scores of sick and dead burnt into our national subconscious. It is all part of the CDCs script to get citizens rushing to their doctors and Wal-Marts to be vaccinated. CLIP
The Democrats: Really, You Just Gotta Laugh (10/12/2009) http://www.thiscantbehappening.net/?q=node/396
The Democrats in Congress, and their main man Barack Obama in the White House, have taken tens of millions in legal bribes from the health insurance industry over the past year, and have obligingly been hammering out in Congress a health reform bill that, instead of helping people, has been designed to help the insurance industry. They started out by immediately blackballing any discussion of real health reform in the form of an expansion of Medicare to cover everyone of every age, which of course would have ended the problem of the uninsured, while cutting the nations overall health bill by at least a third, but in the process shutting down the private health insurance business.Then they chipped away and are at this point on the verge of eliminating any so-called public option or government-run health insurance plan to even compete with the private insurance sector. Finally, in a move as breathtakingly accommodating of the insurance industry as was the multi-trillion-dollar bailout financial bailout of Wall Streets biggest banks, they proposed to require (on pain of a $3800 fine by the IRS) to require everyone in America to buy a health insurance plan from the private sectora gift to the industry of some 40-50 million new captive customers. But a combination of public outrage at this forced program of compulsory insurance and recognition that the inevitable government subsidy of low-income insurance buyers would be humongous has led Congress to backtrack, and start backing away from the mandatory aspect of this plan. And now the private insurance industry, not satisfied that it has managed to practically dictate the terms of the health reform legislation so far, and angry that it might not get those 40-50 million new forced customers, is reportedly threatening to turn around and knife the president and the Democratic Congress in the back. Theyre threatening to (gasp!) start running attack ads on the reform legislation. CLIP
Baxter in Austria rolls out "swine flu" jab at night in secret operation
21 October 2009
It happened in the middle of the night, yesterday, on Tuesday October 20th.
The security guard gave a signal and the barrier guarding Baxters facilities surrounded by dense forests at Orth an der Donau was finally raised. Engines roared. Tyres screeched. Headlights flashed. Trucks carrying 500,000 doses of Baxters "swine flu" jab Celvapan trundled past the barrier under the watchful eyes of security staff and police, and drove across the neon lit carpark.
Escorted by police vehicles, the trucks made their way down the icy country lane in the darkness. Reaching the motorway circling Vienna, the convoy split: some trucks headed to Salzburg, Voralburg and Tirol; othes headed south to Burgenland and Carinthia while still others headed north to Upper Austria.
Each palette in every lorry contained 240 boxes; each box in turn was packed with 20 vials of Celvapan; each of these 20 vials contained 10 doses of the toxic "swine flu" jab as the biggest ever mass vaccination campaign in the countrys history got under way.
Baxter and government officials refused to reveal the destination of the vaccine material. The location at which the "swine flu" jabs are to be stored until they are distributed to "vaccine centers" and hospitals is to be kept top secret, according to the newspaper Österreich.
"Swine flu" jabs such as GlaxoSmithKlines Pandemrix are classified as bioweapons by EU and US regulators and they, therefore, have to be transported using especially tight security in conformity to EU and US rules on the transport of bioweapons.
These extra security precuations were very much evident in Austria as Baxter finally rolled out its Celvapan "swine flu" jab.
However, comparable security precuations were completely absent when 72 kilos of vaccine material contaminated with the live bird flu virus left Baxters facilities in Orth an der Donau this January to be transported to a lab in Vienna called Avir Greenhill Biotechnology.
In spite of the fact, Baxters ultra modern biomedical facilities in Orth an der Donau have to adhere to biosecurity level 3 regulations when handling the live bird flu virus an artificial, lab engineered virus which Baxter should not have had in the first place 72 kilos of pandemic material were not only manufactured in Baxters facilities but also sent irradiated and with a false label to Avir and from there to 16 labs in Austria, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Germany.
If an alert member of staff at the Czech lab BioTest had not broken a seal of one of the packages and tested the "vaccine material" destined to be given to people as seasonal flu, and so discovered the live bird flu virus on February 6th, the worlds population could by now have been decimated by a bird flu pandemic and forced vaccinations.
A WONDERFUL ALTERNATIVE!... STAYING CENTERED AND INNERLY BALANCED THROUGH MEDITATION
The mainstream media are now reporting the onset of a swine flu emergency. Yet controversy is raging over the safety and efficacy of the government-approved vaccine.
The strain known as H1N1 supposedly hits children and young people the hardest. The elderly are said to be similarly at risk. Deaths are being reported, as are shortages of vaccine at some locations.
Government officials are making the TV rounds, including Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius, who says the vaccine is safe and secure and right on target with an immune response.
Yet Americans are deeply skeptical. According to a poll by AOL news, 61 percent say they do not plan to get the vaccine. Only 21 percent are very worried about the flu outbreak.
In fact the alliance between the federal government and the big pharmaceutical companies to push the H1N1 vaccine has ignited a populist revolt. The debate that is raging on Capitol Hill over national health care insurance had already exposed the health care industry as being far more concerned with profits than they are with people. H1N1 came along just in time to carry the revolt a step further.
An example of how the pharmaceutical industry is obsessed with the bottom line is shown by the difference in prices between proprietary medicines and their generic equivalents. A report by Life Extension magazine found that such well-known drugs as Celebrex, Lipitor, and Prozac had enormous mark-ups, topped by Xanaz, marked-up from 2.4 cents to $136.79 per 100 tablets!
No wonder many people are turning to alternative remedies, including improved nutrition or use of supplements such as vitamin C. To combat this, the government has gone on the attack, with the Food and Drug Administration and the Federal Trade Commission sending warning letters to over 140 product vendors. On the list is famed alternative healer Dr. Andrew Weil for statements on his website about his Immune Support Formula containing astragalus, an herbal mainstay of traditional Chinese medicine that is said to increase the bodys immune response.
Another natural preventive for flu and many other illnesses is simply to drink plenty of clean, filtered water, preferably fresh spring or well water, or water that has been ionized through an alkanization process. Recently the Natural News website published an interview done several years ago with a Dr. Batmanghelidj, who published extensive research that demonstrates how many illnesses for which doctors prescribe expensive and dangerous drugs are really caused by dehydration, including many diseases affecting the elderly. Click Here
One result of dehydration, for instance, is deterioration of the walls of blood vessels. In order to repair the damage, the body produces more cholesterol, which Dr. Barmanghelidj calls a waterproof bandage for the cardio-vascular system. Then, when this extra cholesterol shows up in blood tests, doctors prescribe powerful drugs like Lipitor which can have devastating side-effects. It would most likely be better simply to tell people to drink more water.
Finally, the enormous pressure being brought to bear on the population to take the H1N1 vaccine has added to a huge and growing controversy over whether vaccines are safe at all. An increasing number of commentators are linking the growing use of vaccines to what some call an epidemic of childhood autism and other neurological disorders. Recall that the swine flu scare of 1976 led to discontinuation of the vaccine back then when it caused a number of deaths and a surge in paralysis from Guillan-Barre syndrome.
See for instance, the work of Dr. Andrew Moulden of Canada, whose work has linked vaccines to a sludging effect in the tiniest blood vessels in the brain which may be related to onset of such diseases as dementia, multiple sclerosis, autism, and even schizophrenia, along with many childhood learning disabilities. Dr. Moulen has even suggested a possible link between the frequent administration of flu vaccines to the elderly and the onset of alzheimers. Click Here
But there is an even deeper problem with modern medicine, which is that it is almost completely materialistic in its assumptions and approach.
Modern medicine views disease as a mechanistic process, caused either by germs, chemical imbalances, or genetics. This leads to the assumption that for every illness, there is a physical cure, either by killing the offending micro-organism, restoring chemical balance through a pill, or cutting out the failed or offending body part by surgery.
The materialistic outlook has even taken over the practice of psychiatric medicine. If a person is depressed, disturbed, anxious, or unhappy, dont look at the possible causes in that persons outlook, environment, diet, habits, addictions, or value system. Just give them an anti-depressent or even an anti-psychotic. Never mind that these drugs may just suppress symptoms or even reduce the person to almost a vegetative state. On the surface, at least, they seem to be getting better or at least causing less trouble!
But in some circles, an entirely different world-view is emerging. We know, for instance, about the holistic approach to medicine that sees a person as not just a bundle of chemical reflexes but a complete human being with a mind, heart, body, and spirit, all of which need to work more or less in harmony for optimum health to result.
But how often is this knowledge really practiced by people day-in and day-out?
A whole new industry of holistic health practitioners has come into existence, including those who practice acupunture, acupressure, reiki, hypnosis, massage, and body-work, including yoga, tai-chi, qi-gong, etc. There is also a growing awareness that a regular practice of prayer and spiritual devotion also benefits the whole person, including the physical body.
The deepest of these holistic practices may in fact be meditation. Meditative or contemplative prayer is a central component of religious practice within both the Catholic and Orthodox faiths, and meditation is the central discipline of all lines of Buddhism. Yoga also includes meditation, and in some types of yogic practice is the core discipline.
Are people who meditate more healthy? I am not aware of any scientific studies, but based on my own experience with many different types of meditation which includes association with various groups, schools, and teachers of meditation, I would have to say they appear to be. Or at least they worry less about their physical health, take illness more in stride, and are able to recover faster when it occurs.
One thing is sure: long-term practice of meditation on a daily basis seems to raise the energy level of the body. This makes a difference because the body is like an energy-filled vessel. If this energy leaks through negative emotions, unnecessary physical tension, and the constant churning of the mind, the body will suffer a general state of depletion, which is bound to make it more susceptible to disease. It also makes a difference if one avoids much of the jarring imagery churned out by the mass media through violent and disturbing films, TV programming, video games, etc.
These health-related factors which have been understood by traditional societies for millennia are also starting to be realized by millions of ordinary people in every walk of life. Combined with a nutritious diet, physical exercise, positive relationships, and productive work, a rich inner life of prayer and meditation produces a multitude of benefits, not the least of which seems to be improved physical health and greater resistance to infections such as swine flu.
