I am still waiting for military movement..........I have not mentioned it as of late.......but I still think when the SHTF we will see domestic movement......

Also you may want to be on the look out for dead bird reports..........Before all of this started I was following the dead bird issue very closely........

I originally thought last fall that H5N1 would be released through birds in the US wich would force the manditory vaccination upon the citizens.....

There where a lot of dead bird reported last fall and winter in the US and I know what the media was telling you was far from the truth through my sources........

A poster mentioned today on another thread he is seeing dead robins on the ground in kansas..........

So you may want to plug in dead birds in your news feed and see if you get any US hits............

Pandemics: avoiding the mistakes of 1918
By John M. Barry
John M. Barry is a Distinguished Scholar at the Center for Bioenvironmental Research of Tulane and Xavier Universities, New Orleans, Louisiana 70112, USA. He is author of The Great Influenza: The Epic Story of the Deadliest Plague In History.

As bodies piled up, the United States' response to the 'Spanish flu' was to tell the public that there was no cause for alarm. The authority figures who glossed over the truth lost their credibility, says John M. Barry.

In the next influenza pandemic, be it now or in the future, be the virus mild or virulent, the single most important weapon against the disease will be a vaccine. The second most important will be communication. History has shown that to cut vaccine production time, minimize economic and social disruption, deliver health care and even food, governments need to communicate well — both between themselves and with the public.

Dead bird dilemma
The Bakersfield Californian | Monday, May 18 2009 09:13 PM

Recently, we found two dead birds in our yard. It seems that over the years we have been told to call the authorities when this happens because it can be an indication that West Nile virus is in the area.

I try to follow the rules and laws. I called the first number I found and they gave me another number to call. I called the second number and they, in turn, gave me another number to call. I have no idea who these people were.

The third party took my phone number and zip code. She then went on to tell me they don't pick up these birds. So now what is one supposed to do?

What a joke! My husband got his shovel and buried the poor birds. So much for that situation. By the way, no one ever called me after I gave them my number.

Just a little more info to make you go HHMMMMM....

A couple months ago at one of the international airports on the east two seperate events..........a passenger who's flight originated in China was carring in their suitcase "live" canaries neatly packed in very small boxes.........The boxes are a key here.......I was told these were speacial containers to keep the birds alive.........

I was not privileged to any further info or how the birds tested.........

And of course you did not see this in the media anywhere......

I know a poultry farm in KY last March tested positive to H5N1 and all the birds where other birds in the area where affected......Now this is in the media.........

The more I think about it, the more I feel we may see the H5N1 mutate here with H1N1 instead of China.........

posted on May, 22 2009 @ 10:32 AM

West Nile virus is in the area.

West Nile does play a role in the death of birds as well as many other causes......California does have the west nile as well......

Two birds, not too worried.........5-10 birds in a yard........I am worried..

The poster from kansas saw 6 dead birds in a yard..........Being in KS it could be poisoning done by some farmer......I asked him where he lived to no response as of yet........There are so many things to rual out........

But when you see all kinds of birds dying in the hundreds........

You are absolutely right. That is the post I was thinking of and somehow got it mixed up with an official statement.

Thanks for the good memory!

The U.S. government said on Friday that it was setting aside $1 billion to help companies develop a vaccine against the new strain of H1N1 influenza that is sweeping the world.


The problem confronting city officials is how to quell that fear without coming across as insensitive to normal parental concerns or out of touch with New Yorkers in the mainly working-class, immigrant-heavy communities who appear most worried. One assemblyman this week compared the situation to the fear that gripped New York after the Sept. 11 attacks and said it was the mayor's duty to do a better job of calming people.

WHO adds deadliness to flu pandemic threshold

GENEVA (AP) — The World Health Organization says it will examine swine flu's evolving danger to humans before declaring a pandemic.

WHO's announcement that it is going to include new criteria comes after a number of countries pressed it to review how it will declare a global flu epidemic, so that issues beyond the virus' spread are taken into account.

U.N. flu chief Dr. Keiji Fukuda told a news conference Friday that the new definition of what would constitute phase 6 on the agency's six-phase pandemic alert scale had yet to be established. He said danger to humans will be included.

Britain, China, Japan and other countries urged WHO this week at its annual meeting to be cautious before moving from its current phase 5, as such a move could have economic consequences.

THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP's earlier story is below.

As far as your question about who are the CDC/WHO puppets of, I can only guess. My instinct tells me big business and big pharm at the same time. To me, it explains why they want to scare people into taking an ineffective drug, while assuring people that it's ok to go to the mall this weekend!

ETA: One more case of manipulation: I have searched this thread and others and cannot find the link I was looking for, but didn't someone post that all cases that did not require a ventilator were being called mild?

[edit on 22-5-2009 by Cameoii]

1. Ditto here...follow the money...even Dr. Chan's (of WHO) speech alludes to this, see:

2. I'm sorry I can't provide exact source citations (info. overload!) but maybe in Canada all cases that don't require a ventilator are deemed mild, but in the U.S. it's hospitalization that CDC is using to count cases?

I'm living in Cali now, and I will admit that at least they have provided some detailed info. to the media, & CDC re: specific snapshot hospitalizations data and what-not, but you know we are considered the left coast as well as really needing to butter-up because of the financial mess the state is in...

Can anyone explain why AP reported 10 deaths associated with H1N1 and CDC is only reporting 9 deaths???

Sounds like (and may be) a dumb question because we all know the numbers are skewed anyhow. But I don't believe this is a lag in CDC reporting because it's been like this for a couple days now.

CDC: 9 deaths

AP Writer: 10 deaths The young man from Utah was the 1st fatality from the state, I believe.

I might be in error--have missed a case or something-- so I'll withhold my comments about CDC/MSM for now

Twenty-seven cases of A(H1N1) swine flu virus have been confirmed in Georgia as of today, but none are in the ten-county Northwest Georgia Public Health district, which includes Polk County.

Seventeen of the currently confirmed Georgia cases are clustered in Henry County and linked one particular school, while the others are in Cherokee, Clayton, Cobb (2), DeKalb, Fulton (3), Newton and Rockdale counties. The Newton and Rockdale cases are also linked to the Henry County school.

Just a note to my Georgia neighbors.

So far no cases of swine flu in South Georgia.

"What we are looking for and what we will be looking for is something, events, which signify a really substantial increase in risk of harm to people," Keiji Fukuda, the WHO's acting assistant director general, told a news conference in Geneva on Friday."(bold mine)

So they are supposed to be a preventative, disease control org., but they want to see more "events", i.e. deaths, which are already happening and by all accounts under-reported???

Just where is their threshold?
