The cited story makes a large number of unconfirmed claims. It claims that there is a plot by the Illuminati to depopulate the earth, which would
somehow permit their Utopia to be realized. It claims that the Great Influenza Pandemic was caused by contaminated vaccine against another disease.
It tries to connect Obama with this Illuminati, and then hints that somehow Obama's visit to Mexico was somehow connected to the outbreak of flu
Depopulating the earth isn't likely to allow some hidden, secretive group to gain power. After the Black Plague, the population of Europe was
decimated. As a result, ordinary individuals, previously powerless serfs, gained enormous power. They formed trade guilds, organizations that
protected workers and gave them the ability to bargain with the upper classes. No longer were workers forced into virtual slavery. They could choose
where and whether they would work. They were in short supply, and therefore valuable. If the Illuminati are trying to gain power by depopulating the
earth, they are going to be sadly disappointed.
The article states that authorities claim a pandemic comes every 100 years or so. Then the article points out there there weren't pandemics in 1818,
1718, etc. This is a specious argument.
First, the authorities claim a pandemic arises about *three* times per century. We had three such episodes during the 20th Century - 1917, 1957, and
1968. Pandemic doesn't mean everyone dies; it just means, many people throughout a region (or the world) get sick.
There have been other pandemics throughout recent history, all the way back to 1510. They don't happen like clockwork, every 33 1/3 years on the
dot. They come and go, forming clusters, sometimes not happening. Just like most other natural phenomena.
There is no credible evidence to support the notion that the Great Pandemic began as a result of contaminated vaccine. Such a thing is by no means
impossible - the 1976 vaccine against Swine Flu was contaminated with Guillaime-Barre virus. However, there isn't any reliable evidence to support
the idea that the deadly flu of 1917 was a result of a vaccine.
Finally, the notion that Obama's visit to Mexico was somehow related to the flu outbreak there is without logic. Why would we send our head of state
to a place where we're (supposedly) going to start an epidemic? Wouldn't you expect a few quiet agents to go there and release the virus without
any fanfare, without any connection to the US?
All in all, this article doesn't offer any credible evidence to support its claims; much less does it offer anything to support the vague hints it
