I am getting Sooo concerned about this coming fall and the forced vaccinations. This woman is insane and came loaded for bear to get or press her point across.

Not one but three recommended flu shots this fall and the Government and the Health Departments are going to start a huge campaign?

No. This has to be addressed by the intelligent , educated people as widely as the Bureau of Propaganda!

The truth about the vaccines must be a priority.

Karl Denninger has this to say today...

Heh, since I got a "tinfoil" mention over at another blog for my coverage of the bearer-bond saga (along with a clearly-twisted line of garbage as their "explanation") I thought I'd stoke the fire a bit more with this story:

In its current issue, HSL reports rumors that "Some U.S. embassies worldwide are being advised to purchase massive amounts of local currencies; enough to last them a year. Some embassies are being sent enormous amounts of U.S. cash to purchase currencies from those governments, quietly. But not pound sterling. Inside the State Dept., there is a sense of sadness and foreboding that 'something' is about to happen ... within 180 days, but could be 120-150 days."

.....HSL's suspicion: "Another FDR-style 'bank holiday' of indefinite length, perhaps soon, to let the insiders sort out the bank mess, which (despite their rosy propaganda campaign) is getting more out of their control every day. Insiders want to impose new bank rules. Widespread nationalization could result, already underway. It could also lead to a formal U.S. dollar devaluation, as FDR did by revaluing gold (and then confiscating it)." .....

.....CDC is now estimating that the novel H1N1 virus will be “Category 2” in severity. They are closely watching the situation in the Southern Hemisphere for validation of this estimate.....

......And by the way, if the attack rate is between 20 and 40% the death rate, if the "serious complication" rate looks anything like it has thus far, will end up closer to that upper boundary.

Why? Lack of ability to treat, and that's in the US. In other parts of the world, especially out of the "first world" western nations, the death rate will be insanely high.

Here's the problem: If you need a ventilator you're in deep trouble and there's a decent chance you'll be leaving the hospital in a pine box. But if you need one and there is none available, you are almost certainly going to leave the hospital in a pine box!....

..... But if we have 2 million people showing up at hospitals within a few weeks and a significant percentage need supportive respiratory therapy, all pretty much at the same time, a huge percentage of those people are not going to get it, as the equipment simply does not exist, and they will die.

If this flu bug turns into that sort of event nations will go on "lockdown" almost immediately in a last-ditch defensive attempt to control contagion. It will help but not fix it (there is no fix) but in that situation having local currency will be critical to be able to have basic needs delivered to you - like for instance food!

By the way should that sort of event occur you can say goodbye to any idea of "green shoots". The economic damage of such an event will be tremendous.

Let's hope we avoid it; pay attention to that part of the world where its winter now for some sort of indication as to what we're in for here in the northern hemisphere's "western world" developed economies in six months or so.

Also in light of Denningers comments, and this...
Time for Delivery

So please pay attention to the following.
I have heard rumors for some time, but today it was confirmed to me, that the Canadian mint’s present problems are not unique and that other depositories (vaults) have had an army of auditors descend on them in the last two weeks. Some of these depositories have names so famous that it would scare the hell out of you. The repercussions would be drastic if they turn out to be troubled.

Why take the risk?

I suggest to you now that you take delivery of all gold held in vaults and depositories on your behalf, but this time even from the most prestigious.

he is reccomending you call your gold.

Second death related to swine flu in San Mateo County

A middle-aged man who died earlier this week is the second person in San Mateo County to succumb to complications from the swine flu virus, a health spokeswoman said Friday.

The man was obese and had a lung condition that likely was a factor in his death, Health System spokeswoman Doris Estremera said.

Though the man died Monday, county health officials did not receive confirmation until Wednesday that he tested positive for the H1N1 strain of the influenza virus, Estremera said.

Chief Health Officer Scott Morrow announced Monday the county's first swine flu-related death — a middle-aged woman who had underlying heart and lung conditions and succumbed within the previous three weeks.

"This individual could easily have died if she just got seasonal flu," Morrow said.

The county will send DNA samples from the woman to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for further testing, he said.

Buffalo girl dies from

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - A young Buffalo girl, just shy of her 10th birthday, has lost her life to the Swine Flu.

News 4 received news of her death late Saturday afternoon.

This is the second child to die from the virus in a week.

9-year-old Maya Harden died just after 9:30 Saturday morning at Women and Children's Hospital.

She'd been on life support for 11 days, and had contracted pneumonia and MRSA. She would have been ten on July 18th.

Influenza A: 27 confirmed deaths
40-year-old woman from Mar del Plata district, in Buenos Aires province, died of Influenza A and became the 27th victim of this lethal illness. Malbrán Institute is still waiting for 250 sample results.

The woman had been hospitalized a week ago at Mar del Plata's Regional Hospital. The head of the Health Zone VIII, Gustavo Rodriguez, said that the "H1N1 virus flu situation in Mar del Plata is getting worse."

"The Acute Hospital created a crisis committee and organized a special emergency room for the Influenza A cases," said Rodriguez.

Alejandro Ferro, Health secretary from General Pueyrredón district, said "the woman who died was not in good health, she had a previous illness. The previous studies the victim had showed she had a general infection"

Ferro reported that "most of the lethal cases are from people that have a related illness" and confirmed that "currently there are 27 H1N1 cases in Mar del Plata and almost 250 samples are still being tested by the Malbrán Institute."

Mar del Plata is considered a risk zone because it is an area in which "the virus spread easily and with its own characteristics," Ferro said, "people shouldn't panic."

The number of people dieing in Argentina is mind blowing theve only been suffering from swine flu for maybe three weeks now and already at 27 deaths.

Looks like we have second death in Great Britain:

A pensioner has become only the second patient in Europe to die from swine flu - just weeks after the death of a young mother in the same hospital.

The 73-year-old man from the Greenock in Scotland succumbed to the H1N1 strain of the virus last night.

He passed away quietly in the intensive care unit of Paisley's Royal Alexandra Hospital.

Earlier this month, Jacqueline Fleming, 38, a mother of three from Glasgow, was the first victim of the flu pandemic outwith the Americas.

I do not know the exact statistics, someone here does as it has been posted on several occassions, but how many of these reported deaths by flu are actually a regular strain which is being hyped inorder to push the swine vaccine?

Why oh why are people such as the health authorities call us a 'herd' mentality?

I am so upset that when the shots come down, and pppl are standing in line for theirs, that those of us that refuse will be looked at like conspiracy nut jobs. Am I going to loose my children? are they going to be forced to take the shot?

Will I be imprisoned and forgotten? My family are cows, they just do not look at the vaccine as anything but a Godsend.

What happened to no vaccines will be created until long after the flu or virus has run its course? I thought that it would not be ready until the following year?

What is it that they want to inject us with? And what is worse is that it wont have immediate negative results, not until the last cow has been injected will we start seeing the long term results.

Will they spread it by airplanes and chemtrails? For those that refuse?

I am sorry but I feel really angry today and freaked out about a plan, what kind of plan can I make against the evil plan?


posted on Jun, 28 2009 @ 11:24 AM
What if we all ask for the spent vial, and then have it tested? If enough people do that and the results are what we know they will be, the word will spread and they cant lock us all up!

Swine Flu Not Subsiding in Illinois
6/27/09 @ 1:09:54 pm

(Springfield, IL) -- New numbers show the swine flu isn't leaving Illinois and kids could be more susceptible to virus. Children and teens make up more than half of the confirmed cases of the swine flu in Illinois. Illinois Department of Public Health officials are now reporting 12 deaths linked to swine flu and more than 28-hundred cases of the flu in the state. Over half the cases are in Chicago and Cook County, but 27 other counties all over Illinois have positive cases of swine flu.

Across the country, there are 127 deaths connected to the swine flu pandemic and over 27-thousand cases of the virus. A state public health spokeswoman says the virus isn't acting like other seasonal illnesses because new cases are still being reported during the summer. That may mean people are in for a summer full of washing hands and covering coughs.

Swine flu has infected more than a million Americans, federal health officials said Friday, and is infecting thousands more every week even though the annual flu season is well

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) — Swine flu has been detected in numerous pigs at a farm near the Argentine capital, but the virus has not shown itself to be any deadlier to the animals than a normal flu, the government said Friday.

The discovery comes as Argentina is experiencing a human swine flu outbreak during the South American winter. The Health Ministry confirmed three new deaths — raising the country's toll to 26, more than any other nation on the continent.

Jorge Amaya, chief of the National Agricultural Health and Quality Service, told Mitre radio that about a quarter of pigs at the unidentified farm in Buenos Aires province were found to be infected.

"The mortality rate is less than 2 percent, which is typical of a normal flu for swine," Amaya said.

Nevertheless, he said, "Veterinarians are very worried because humans are infecting the animals." Amaya added that eating pork poses no danger to people.

Pork Producers' Association president Juan Uccelli said the farm would be closed down for an investigation of the H1N1 virus' evolution there.

Swine flu was previously found in pigs last month on a farm in Alberta, Canada. About 500 hogs were killed because a quarantine on the farm created overcrowding — not because they were sick, officials there said.

The Health Ministry said Friday that 1,587 people in Argentina have been infected.

But while authorities are taking measures to contain the virus, they say it is not expected to be worse than the regular seasonal flu.

HHS extends liability shield to antivirals used for H1N1

Jun 26, 2009 (CIDRAP News) – The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) recently provided a shield against damage claims related to the use of the antiviral drugs oseltamivir (Tamiflu) and zanamivir (Relenza) in the current H1N1 influenza pandemic.

HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius signed a notice extending liability protection under the Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness (PREP) Act. It was published in the Federal Register on Jun 19.

The PREP Act allows the HHS secretary to provide liability protection related to the use of various medical measures against diseases that HHS determines to be health emergencies. Protections are already in place for the two antivirals when used against H5N1 influenza and for vaccines for H5N1 and other potential pandemic flu strains, among other drugs and vaccines.

Liability protection is provided to groups and individuals involved in the development, manufacture, testing, distribution, administration, and use of medical countermeasures, according to HHS.

Gretchen Michael, an HHS spokeswoman in the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response, described the antiviral-related move as routine. "This just sort of adapted the previous PREP Act documents for H1N1," she said.

Michael said the impulse for PREP Act liability protections has come primarily from the manufacturers of the relevant products. She said the oseltamivir protection measure was not related to the reports, mainly from Japan, of abnormal behavior in some adolescents who were given the drug.

So the protection of the drug makers is put in place.

Sask. records first swine flu death

REGINA — Saskatchewan reported its first death linked to the H1N1 swine flu virus Sunday.

The woman, in her forties, also had serious underlying health conditions, according to a Saskatchewan Health media release.

"This is very sad news, and our sympathies go out to the family," said Saskatchewan Chief Medical Health Officer Dr. Moira McKinnon. "Influenza can be a very serious disease, particularly for people who have other health issues."

Swine flu has infected more than 6,700 Canadians in every province and territory, and has been linked to 21 deaths in this country.

Brazil registers first H1N1 flu death - ministry

SAO PAULO, June 28 (Reuters) - Brazil had its first death from the H1N1 influenza, or swine flu, on Sunday, after a 50-year-old man succumbed to the virus which he picked up in Argentina, the health ministry said in a statement.

He first showed symptoms on June 15 while on a trip to Argentina, which has had several deaths due to the flu. After returning to Brazil on June 19, he was admitted to a hospital the following day where he was confirmed to have the H1N1 virus.

The ministry has in recent days warned Brazilians against traveling in Argentina and Chile.

It also said the total confirmed cases of the deadly flu had reached 627 in Brazil.

Officials expect further deaths as the virus spreads during the coming winter months, which began a week ago in Brazil.

19-year-old who died had flu-like symptoms

A former Kenosha high school baseball star who died Saturday reportedly had suffered flu- or pneumonia-like symptoms and had been given antibiotics by a doctor.

Sam Schissel became unresponsive at his family's home in Somers and was taken by ambulance to Kenosha Medical Center, the Kenosha County Sheriff's Department said Sunday.

Schissel's mother said a doctor had given her son antibiotics, a hospital spokeswoman said. The treatment was given a day or perhaps a couple of days before Schissel's death, the spokeswoman said.

Schissel would have turned 19 Sunday, the spokeswoman said.

Schissel was a first-team all-state pitcher last year as a senior at Kenosha Bradford High School. He was the winning pitcher when Bradford won the state high school championship game.

Schissel won a scholarship to play baseball at the University of Minnesota, but transferred to Carthage College in Kenosha during his freshman year.

An autopsy will be performed Monday, Kenosha County Medical Examiner Mark Witeck said.
