The powers that be use verbiage in the news that incites emotion in it’s readers just like a good author can get his or her audience to cry for a fictional character in a book and just like a good author, the powers that be leave the world sitting on the edge of their seats waiting for the next word as if their very lives depend on it.
Take these recent headlines as an example of how they are ramping up their language to get the whole world worried/scared about the coming flu and ready to take their pharma vaccine.
Headline: Everyone will get vaccine against swine flu
Quote: “The NHS is preparing to vaccinate the entire population against swine flu after the disease claimed the life of its first healthy British patient.”
Quote: “The UK government has ordered enough vaccine to cover the entire population. GPs are being told to prepare for a nationwide vaccination campaign.”
Quote: “He said surgeries would be aiming to inoculate about 30 people an hour in a “military-style operation”.”
Quote: When the new vaccine for swine flu arrives in Britain, regulators said this weekend, it could be approved for use in just five days. (The path of a popular medicine from the laboratory to the chemist or doctor’s surgery can involve years of clinical trials on a select group of patients.)
Article with Headline: "Everyone will get vaccinated"
Headline: New flu “unstoppable”, WHO says, calls for vaccine
Quote: Saying the new H1N1 virus is "unstoppable", the World Health Organization gave drug makers a full go-ahead to manufacture vaccines against the pandemic influenza strain.
Quote: Every country will need to vaccinate citizens against the swine flu virus.
Quote: Several reports showed the new virus attacks people differently than seasonal flu -- affecting younger people, the severely obese and seemingly healthy adults, and causing disease deep in the lungs.
Headline: New flu resembles feared 1918 virus
Quote: The new H1N1 influenza virus bears a disturbing resemblance to the virus strain that caused the 1918 flu pandemic, with a greater ability to infect the lungs than common seasonal flu viruses, researchers reported on Monday.
Quote: In addition, they found that people who survived the 1918 pandemic seem to have extra immune protection against the virus, again confirming the work of other researchers.
Headline: Firms, School and Churches rush to cope with outbreak
Quote: "Guidance is being given to all store and personnel managers who are required to report all actual and suspected cases of the illness to our dedicated helpline, and these incidents are then evaluated case by case."
(Authors Note: Notice how the department of health in this country is asking workers to report/nark on each other for suspected and actual cases of the flu)Firms, Schools, Churches prepare for Swine Flu outbreak
As you can see there has been an extreme language shift from what we’ve heard since the beginning of this outbreak and that’s that this was the normal flu, nobody worry, nobody do anything, life as normal, keep society and money coming into the US as normal, blah blah blah.
But wait! What’s this? Haven’t you wondered why every state in the US has been at their highest level of pandemic flu preparedness (which allows them to declare martial law at a moments notice, bypassing the normal needs and requirements being met) since the beginning and why countries are closing schools and businesses? Last time I checked, the world has never closed schools, shut down movie theaters and public gatherings because it was flu season nor have we implemented statewide preparedness issues.
And it’s kind of funny how Mexico was erupting into a civil war with gang activity but then a flu appeared and closed everything down, the military issued martial law and forced all activity to stop. But wait there’s more! The US happened to be having Tea Parties and localized collective uprisings to the atrocities that were/are happening within our borders and against our citizens until a week-long scare of a deadly flu shut everything down and focused (baited) our brains to look elsewhere.
Now don’t get me wrong, I believe this flu is the real deal. I also believe through documented research that the earth goes through cycles where viruses become more virulent and I believe that we are in one of those cycles now but do not let yourself be baited into a trap that stops you from surviving.
You will see disruption in your daily life as this flu returns in our fall and winter seasons (In the Americas). Whether there be truth to the dangers as they are represented to us or whether the powers that be use the bait to bring about even more devious things, I do not know..........
.............You need to be prepared to blanket yourself from the world when disruption hits you between now and winter and close up shop until you know that you are safe to run the risks.
How do you do this?
Store enough food/water, medicine and materials for 1 to 3 months of complete isolation with 1 month being the worst and 3 months being the best.
Find areas of least-baited news to gather information from (Internet, Ham and Shortwave radio are the only ways to get your news but beware that these get baited as well).
If it is safe to: Do local reconnaissance to note how “over run” the hospitals or shops really are without going inside to risk infection or capture.
Be prepared to quarantine yourself or others in your family
The last time the government embarked on a major vaccine campaign against a new swine flu, thousands filed claims contending they suffered side effects from the shots. This time, the government has already taken steps to head that off.
Vaccine makers and federal officials will be immune from lawsuits that result from any new swine flu vaccine, under a document signed by Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius, government health officials said Friday.
Since the 1980s, the government has protected vaccine makers against lawsuits over the use of childhood vaccines. Instead, a federal court handles claims and decides who will be paid from a special fund.
The document signed by Sebelius last month grants immunity to those making a swine flu vaccine, under the provisions of a 2006 law for public health emergencies. It allows for a compensation fund, if needed.
A Bangkok woman died yesterday after several days of flu-like symptoms, prompting suspicion that her death might be the country's latest fatality toll from the type-A (H1N1) influenza virus.With the official death toll at 26 in Thailand, Min Buri police yesterday morning reported the death of Misstine Thailand employee Saisunee Siripanyasuk, 47. Her relatives told police that she had chronic high blood pressure and had suffered from high fever and flu-like symptoms since July 13
WEST PALM BEACH,FL-- A local woman in intensive care at Wellington Regional Medical Center has lost her baby during her battle with Swine Flu.
According to a statement from Wellington Regional Medical Center:
The decision was made early this morning to deliver Aubrey Opdyke’s baby. Despite heroic efforts on the part of physicians and nurses, we are sad to announce that Baby Parker Christine Updyke has expired.
Mrs. Opdyke remains in critical condition in the Intensive Care Unit at Wellington Regional Medical Center. Employees and medical staff extend their prayers and deepest sympathy to the entire Updyke family.
A shortage of beds and ventilators is about to strike Canada as the H1N1 pandemic intensifies -- we should have been ready
While we continue to observe a daily increase in the number of swine flu cases across the country, we take comfort in the fact that our country has been preparing for a pandemic for years. It is true that we have an elaborate, expertly produced national pandemic plan, which in turn gave rise to provincial, territorial, regional and local plans. Canada has even been called a world leader in pandemic preparedness by the World Health Organization.
But there is an inherent weakness in our pandemic planning, a weakness which greatly undermines all the effort put into this enterprise, a weakness which may in the end be fatal.
In 2004, a Canadian pandemic plan was released that did not say a word about the amount of material and human resources that would be required for each of the hundreds of proposed pandemic measures nor about who would provide these resources. When you stop to think about it, it's almost unbelievable: the largest public health program ever proposed in our national history was launched without any budget or allocation of funds.
Those who disagree will cite that in 2006 the federal budget earmarked $1 billion over five years for this cause. Three years into this budget, we know that the federal government purchased stocks of the antiviral drug Tamiflu and contracted for the production of a vaccine. However, these actions, while important and laudable, are far from meeting all the essential requirements. To date, none of the budgeted money seems to have made its way to the front lines and trenches where the real war against the pandemic will largely be fought, such as the hospitals I am associated with.
BUENOS AIRES .- At least 10% of those killed by influenza A (H1N1) are health professionals. This figure was reported yesterday by an MP who claimed the national Ministry of Health a report on the status of doctors and nurses who are working to combat the epidemic. "The sector of health workers is one of the most affected by the health emergency that we are experiencing," said the parliament of the Civic Coalition, Virginia Linares.
The order is based on the fact that these workers make up a group at high risk because patients infected caregivers. The deputy, who belongs to the sector Stolbizer Margarita, said that at least 10% of doctors and nurses were killed, thousands of workers showed symptoms and a half hundred is in critical condition with a picture of pneumonia and influenza A.
The deputy, a native of Bahia Blanca, he added, inter alia, that the health emergency highlighted the precarious in that there are many health care workers. "We must be clear, well-trained workers in pay and decent working situations are the key to confronting a health crisis of this magnitude we live," said Linares. (NA) (NA)
